Jesus Bernal


sentenced to 55


years in triple fatality


By BR UCE COLLIER
Jesus. Bernal, 29, will
serve'concurrent sentences
of 55 years for three counts
of DUI manslaughter in a
June 24, 2006 traffic fatality
that left three, people dead
and two other persons in-
jured. Bernal also received
5-year sentences each on
two counts of DUI with seri-
ous bodily injury, also run-
ning concurrent to the lon-
ger sentences.
The crash took place on a
Saturday afternoon near the
northern end of the Clyde B
Wells Bridge, on U.S. 331.
Bernal was driving a truck
northward, with two pas-
sengers, Arnulof Morales,
28, and Jorge Rivera, 41.

receives

$700k in


grants
By ALICIA LEONARD
DeFuniak Springs city
government is getting its
Christmas present a little
early. On Nov. 9, $700,000
in housing funds will be
awarded to the city of De-
Funiak Springs. Vanessa
Mitchell, special projects
coordinator for the city, will
be in Tallahassee to receive
the check. The funds come
from a federal program, the
Community Development
Block Grant (CDBG) with
$350,000 in funds being
matched by the State Hous-
ing Initiatives Partnership
(SHIP) program.
Mitchell said, "It's a hard
process to get your head
around, but I've learned a
lot through the application
process itself." The money
will first be applied to ho-
meowners on the (SHIP)
program. This program

ernments on a population-

restaurant.
Traveling southward
were James Rook, 43 his wife
Margie, 41, their daughter
Kylie, and her friend Magan
Doherty, both 14. They were
driving from Cincinnati, OH
on vacation.
Bernal's truck left the
road, then moved back and
into the southbound lane,
striking the Rooks' vehicle
head-on. James and Margie
Rook were killed, as was Mo-
rales. Doherty and Rivera
were both severely injured.
Kylie Rook was also injured,
but less seriously.
Circuit Court Judge Kel-

custody in Walton County
since the accident. He en-
tered a guilty plea to the
five counts in September
of 2007, and Wells ordered
both a pre-sentence investi-
gation (PSI) and a hearing
at which the families of the
victims and a survivor of the
accident were given an op-
portunity to address Bernal
and the court. Bernal spoke
briefly at that hearing, ex-
pressing his remorse and
asking forgiveness.

Three Walton County
elder-care professionals
have leveled some serious
charges against Kay Brady,
the director of the Walton
County Council On Aging
(COA). Jean Harvey, former
coordinator of the- Retired
Senior Volunteer Program
(RSVP),. Rettha French, a
Council On Aging casework-
er who recently resigned,
and Juanita Jackson, a for-
mer Council On Aging case-
worker.
All three paint a picture
of a poor leader, subject to
vitriolic outbursts to staff,
rudeness or indifference to
clients and a general disre-
gard for area seniors that
depend on the COA. They
say Brady ignored a least
one report of elder abuse,
refused meals to an el-
derly woman until she had
been examined by Gentiva
Health Care Services, was
indifferent to the problem
of not -having dependable
meal-delivery drivers, re-
fused to allow COA facilities
to be used for senior activi-
ties and cancelled meal sites
and charity programs like
Easter Baskets and The Se-
nior Tree of Hope. They say
she mistreated employees
with loud, unwarranted at-
tacks in front of other staff
that often included dispar-
aging personal remarks and
name-calling.
Harvey said that, un-
der Brady's leadership, the
COA's elder services are
spotty, uncertain and often
negligent. "She doesn't care
about seniors. I feel sorry for
the elder people that have to
rely on the COA to get by."
Harvey said that, on one
occasion when there were
not enough meal-delivery
drivers, she volunteered to

afternoon. When she re-
turned, she. says, Brady was
angry and told Harvey to
never do that again. Harvey
said, "She told me 'If drivers
are not available, then they
(clients) just doesn't get it.'
I couldn't believe her atti-
tude."
French said she attempt-
ed to place a window-unit
air-conditioner in a home
for a quadraplegic man, who
was living in a house with-
out one during the summer.
She said Brady refused to
allow her to do so. In an-
other case, French said she
reported that one senior,
an invalid, was being ig-
nored by her caretaker in
her home. French said the
place was so filthy, unkempt
and roach-infested, the bugs
were actually crawling freely
on the woman's bed. Again,
French says. Brady ignored
the reports and did nothing.
French said she was able
to get the woman removed
from the house over Brady's
objections.

Hillard talks tough on immigration


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Springs
Rotary Club hosted guest
speaker J.B. Hillard on Oct.
3, 2007, who spoke on the is-
sue of immigration.
Hillard, a retired border
patrol officer, with 32 years
service spoke on the com-
plexities of immigration,
as well as some of his most
harrowing experiences.
"I thought of a lot of dif-
ferent ways to go with my
speech today, but figured
most people like to hear
about the war stories first,"
Hillard said to responding
chuckles from his audience.
"I started out in New Or-
leans. The National Border
Patrol Council (NBPC) elect-
ed me as their president. I
then transferred to Texas to
the inspections division. I
had to attend the Immigra-
tion academy as they were
a separate division. The Im-
migration and Nationaliza-
tion Service Council (INSC)
then elected me to be their
president as well," he said.
After serving five years
along the Texas-Mexico
border, Hillard was trans-
ferred to Maine to keep an
eye on the American- Ca-


nadian border. During this
time, INS and NBP officers
started rumbling about try-
ing to get Washington to
wake up to the illegal immi-
grant situation officers were
facing in western border
states everyday." In a very
unheard of situation at that
time, during the seventies,
the employees raised funds
to travel to Washington to
sound the alarm on the il-
legal immigrant situation.
I spent about eleven years
traveling back and forth to
Washington taking part in
committees on the issue,"
Hillard said.
Hillard also recalled that
Rep. Leo Ryan, of San Fran-
cisco, was one of the groups
biggest supporters. "That
was a huge loss to our or-
ganization. He was able to
see ahead of time what this
issue would become if not
taken care of by our leaders
and wanted to meet with the
people on the front lines,"
recounts Hillard. "Ryan and
four others were murdered
by members of The People's
Temple, led by the Rever-
end Jim Jones, in 1978, as
the Ryan party tried to re-
turn to the US via a small


airstrip in Guyana."
Hillard told the audi-
ence that the failure to en-
force the immigration laws
passed in 1986 are at the
heart of the problem now.
"Those laws holding
employers responsible for
hiring illegal aliens, if en-
forced, could have allevi-
ated the situation we have
now. But to my knowledge,
no employer has really been


held to the letter of the law
for hiring. We once did a
large round-up in Maine at
a chicken processing plant
'and received so much flack
from media and politicians
that it was the last one we
ever got to do."
Hillard also oversaw
mass immigration and ap-
plications for asylum in Mi-
ami and Guantanamo Bay
by Haitians fleeing their


home country.
Hillard says one of his
favorite parts of the job was
giving the citizenship test
for naturalization. "I really
enjoyed that part of my job.
The people worked hard to
learn our history and be-
come part of our country. I
recruited people to become
part of our country and we
held at the time the larg-
est swearing in ceremony


in Maine's history," Hillard
recounted.
In the end, Hillard told
the audience, "It doesn't re-
ally matter what party is
in the white house where
immigration is concerned.
I've worked with both, but
it does boil down to it being
just a plain matter of poli-
tics. Unless laws that are on
the books are enforced, it's
not going to get any better."


New horizons for computer literacy


For the past nine years,
many Walton County resi-
dents who are home-bound
have been connected to the
outside world through a
special computer literacy
program. The New Horizons
Community Outreach is a
program initiated to serve
those who are unable to pur-
chase a computer and have
restricted or no mobility
outside the home. The pro-
gram is administered by the
Chautauqua Cyber Club, a
group of mostly senior citi-,
zens who enjoy what they do
and are willing to devote the
necessary time and energy
to help others.
Local businesses, govern-
ment agencies, and individ-
uals donate workable com-
puters to this 501 (c) 3


non-profit organization. The
equipment is put into good
working order and placed in
homes wvith'a limited Inter-
net service connection. The
intent of the program is to
promote computer literacy
for the less fortunate who
cannot get out and about in
a normal manner.
There is an application
process and a home visit is
required to determine need
and eligibility. An applica-
tion can be obtained at the
DeFuniak Springs Library
on Circle Drive or by writing
to P. 0. Box 251, DeFuniak
Springs 32435. Printed
copies are also available
through www.waltonccc.
org.
In addition to this special
outreach effort, the club pro-


vides volunteers who work
with the Okaloosa-Walton
College student computer
loan program. These com-
puters are designated for
education purposes and sup-
ports students who need one
for home study.
The Chautauqua Cyber
Club offers basic computer


learning opportunities at
a monthly meeting that
is open for the membership
and visitors. They meet the
third Thursday each month,
10 a.m., at the Chautauqua
Center of Okaloosa-Waltoni
College. For more informa-
tion, contact J. B. Hillard;
892-3450.

A changing



of the season

By RON KELLEY

With ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggety beasties
and things that go bump in the night, I had a great time
on Halloween. I dressed up as myself, figuring that was
scary enough. I saw thousands of children having the time
of their life, masked, painted and dressed to chill. I saw
frazzled, but happy parents following (and sometimes chas-
ing) along behind. The DeFuniak Business and Professional
Association held its long-running celebration downtown,
while the DeFuniak Springs Women's Club held theirs
around Circle Drive. There was a Christian-rock concert
in the Lakeyard and churches throughout DeFuniak held
fall festivals. Various outlying communities had their own
fall festivals and Halloween celebrations.
In short, one way or another, everyone who wanted to
have fun that night had plenty of opportunities to do so.
Now I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. Although it's
often overlooked during retailers' mad dash for Christmas
sales, Thanksgiving's lessons are as important as any. It's
a reminder that we have so much for which to be thankful.
For instance, I'm thankful that we had a safe Hallow-
een, that no children were hurt or injured, that no real
mischief was done to anyone, that citizens and business
leaders joined together to help make it a safe, fun event
for the whole family. I'm thankful that a few misguided
but well-intentioned ministers were once again wrong
about the annual event turning children into stark raving
Satanists. Basically, I'm just thankful to live in DeFuniak
Springs, where some level of common sense still reigns.
Which brings me back to reasons for giving thanks. Some
folk seem blessed with an abundance of good things, while
others may have to look a little closer. Still, all of us can be
thankful for something.
Sometimes, we have to be thankful for things we don't
have. We might say a word of thanks for not having a sick
child or a sick parent. We might be thankful to not have
the grief caused by the death of someone we love. We might
be thankful not to have to spend the night in a jail or prison.
We might be thankful that we do not have to spend every
night outside, huddled in an alley, inside a cardboard box
leaned up against a building. We might be thankful that
we don't have a terrible illness or bills we'll never be able
to pay.
Whatever the circumstances, we should all take the time
to consider our lives and give thanks for the good things
we can still enjoy. Henry Ward Beecher said, "The un-thank-
ful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart
sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron,
so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!"
May the coming season bring mercies, blessings and
abundance for us all.


Amazing Facts
That the tongue of a whale weighs as much as an el-
ephant.
By 2003, the number of people who lived together be-
fore marriage was a little over 70 percent as compared to 5
percent in the 1960s.
According to a recent study, people who talk on cell
phones while driving are as impaired as drunk drivers,
even when they use hands-free devices.
The three richest men in the world are worth as much
as the 40 poorest countries of the world.
Over the last eight year, at least 130,000 children have
been kidnapped for sale, for sexual or labour exploitation
or for the removal of their organs.
During 2005, there were 28 full-fledged wars and eleven
other minor armed conflicts worldwide.
According to the Wall Street Journal, up to half of the
couples asked admit that they commit "financial infidel-
ity" lying to their spouse about expenditure they made.
In the United States, half of all adults have gum disease
or tooth decay. Three out of 10 people over 65 have lost all
their teeth.
In Spain, about 25 percent of children are born out of
wedlock, 43 percent in France, 45 percent in Denmark and
55 percent in Sweden.
About a third of Britons sleep less than five hours each
night. This makes a person more prone to suffer poor con-
centration, memory lapses and mood swings. It may also
increase the risk of obesity, diabetes and depression.
There are over 18,000 pieces of plastic floating on every

The amount of hours spent by US. workers every year

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor,
Halloween was once again a safe and fun place for parents
to bring their children trick or treating, thanks to many orga-
nizations, businesses and churches in our community.
The DeFuniak Springs Woman's Club hosted trick or treat-
ing around the Lakeyard matching up area businesses with
residents around the Lakeyard to help with buying and dis-
tributing candy to nearly 1,800 children. The efforts and coor-
dination of committee chairman Paulette Morrison and her
committee were evident. Three cheers and a pat on the back
for a job well done. It was wonderful to see the Lakeyard over-
flowing with happy children who had more houses to visit this
year than ever.
At this time, on behalf of the DeFuniak Springs Woman's
Club, I would like to thank the residents of Circle Drive who
allowed us to set up area businesses in front of their homes,
and of course, to the many businesses who helped support this
club project. Many thanks to Buy Gones Antiques, Harley and
Mindy Henderson, Gallery 331, Ruby and Benton Southland,
Craig Robinson CPA, Winnie Yeiser, The Book Store, Clary-
Glenn Funeral Home, DFSI Internet, Genesis Auto,
Maxamillion Mortgage, The Medicine Shoppe, Movie Gallery,
National Tire, O'Suzannah, Po' Boys, Walgreens, Wal-Mart,
Winn-Dixie, St. Agatha's, the Men's Auxiliary of the DeFu-
niak Springs Woman's Club and, last but not least, special
thanks go out to. the young ladies and gentlemen of the Wal-
ton High School National Honor Society, fo volunteering to
help to pass out candy.
We really appreciate all that was done to make this event so
successful. We look forward to working with the community
on future events.

President, DeFuniak Springs Woman's Club

Editor,
I wanted to take this time to thank all of the wonderful folks
here in DeFuniak for all of the cards, flowers, candy, and well-
wishes given to me and Sassy on the week of the National
Peanut Festival Pageant. As you can imagine, the week was
hectic, but very rewarding.
We went to luncheons and teas and held pageant practice
every spare minute of the day. Sassy and I made some won-
derful friendships and met some of the best people in the
Wiregrass area.
Just being in the pageant is a great honor, and Sassy and I
represented our community with pride and a true love for our
county and the city of DeFuniak Springs.
I can truly say that you will learn a lot about yourself and
come out of the experience with a true sense of what means
the most to you, personally. For myself, I truly learned what it
was like to miss your home, your mother, and your friends. I
also learned as I ran into my mother's arms so happy to see
her, that there is truly, unconditionally, and without a doubt,
no place like home.
Miss DeFuniak Springs,
Devin Jones


Editor,
Something is rotten in Walton County when the school sys-
tem may capitulate to censorship by some fringe factor or
over-zealous individual. It's not a great leap to see the same
factors in Shakespeare that are being contested in Blithe
Spirits. Hamlet has ghosts, murder and a suspect tryst. One
of Hamlet's famous soliloquies is to a skull.
The path of censorship is on a slippery slope. I'd ask all to
tread with caution. To quote Ecclesiastics, "Wisdom excelleth
folly, as far as light excelleth darkness."
Liz Sinclair
DeFuniak Springs


Editor,

Following the Destin Fishing Rodeo's slaughter of a prime
example, a fine, fit specimen of an animal at the very top of
the food chain, a huge mako shark, comes the heroic act of
Chip Crafton, of Kentucky, who saved a large shark from
humankind's plastic pollution, which was slowly, tortuously,
killing it.
I, for one, am heartened to know that other such people
still exist, willing to selflessly take risks to do the right
thing. To right a wrong we created.
The rescue of this shark in the surf stands in sharpo pQ-
trast to Destin's continued killing of long-evolved, slo.w-re-
producing creatures that are fundamental to the health of
the sea.
I've spent plenty of time in local waters during'shark time'
when they are feeding inshore. I know to safely move away
when they are 'on patrol.' Never once have I been bothered,
as I am not on their menu.
Destin's killing of the rare huge mako, similar to cutting
down a redwood (and subsequent weakening of the web of
life), does not compare favorably to the brave act of the Ken-
tuckian who rescued a six-foot shark in Miramar.
I live in Destin, but the killing of even an individual shark,
which is globally threatened by longline fishermen, as well
as illegal shark finning, is not something of which we should
be proud. We can take great pride in conservation, but none
in the death of something so magnificent. We should be
ashamed. Thank You Chip.

rcel 2, Bytell said that, at pres-
Idings ent, the property is zoned
acres "agricultural," and that any
)us to proposed use changes would
f both have to be addressed by a
ie the separate process. Neverthe-
ton. less, most of the comments
appli- made were in opposition to
city's the purported landfill.
atilda Roberta Turner was first
"meet to speak. Though not a Pax-

y" re- how the city could own out-
r. The of-city property (Parcel 1).

mass, which can translate
into more substantial state
funding.
Next up was Paxton
citizen Randall Harrison.
Speaking of Timber Hold-
ings, he warned that the
owner of land can do "what
he wants to" with his prop-
erty, and "doesn't care about
people." Harrison told the
Council and the crowd, "We
will not allow it to happen."
Citizen Lloyd. Weeks

ees that the Council cannot
base its decision on specu-
lated uses of the parcel.
James Bryan, who owns
property outside of Paxton,
suggested that the "real is-
sue is water," adding that
waste disposal alternatives
such as incinerators should
be considered. Paxton prop-
erty owner Steven Young
said if the Council knows
what use is planned for the
property, it should tell the
public.
Bytell reiterated that due
process requires that the
.Council consider only an-
nexation at this time, and
take up the issue of use lat-

hearings must be held on

for annexation. Bytell an-
swered that the Council
must consider any applica-
tion, adding that due pro-
cess requires that refusals
to annex can only be made
for legal or procedural rea-
sons. Denial of applications
without such reasons could
give the applicant cause to
bring a legal action.
Comments and questions
continued, including com-
ments from residents of the
Flowersview community on
an existing sewage facility
in their area and its possible
effect on water. Bytell man-
aged to get the comments
back on track, but the issue,
apparently a long-standing
community controversy, was
raised several more times
before the end of the meet-
ing.
Jesse W. Rigby, an attor-
ney from Pensacola, spoke

each parcel. Bytell said the
Council would have to re-
advertise the issue and re-
set a meeting. Some in the
audience ,asked what the
fee would be to re-advertise,
and offered to donate mon-
ey for it. One speaker, an-
gry and in tears, asked the
Council, "Would you want
your property to be next to a
landfill?"
Tommy Mathis, who has
served both as Paxton's
mayor and as a councilman,
rose to speak. Looking over
the crowd, he said, "A lot of
people are putting down the
city council.' They are, not
going to ram anything down
your throats." Mathis' words
seemed to have a calming
effect on the crowd. Bytell
decided to close the meet-
ing for public comments at
8:46 p.m., over some objec-
tions. She asked the indi-
vidual Council members to
make their comments. By


the rules of the meeting,
the Council had remained
silent during the public's
comments. Kemp had no
remarks. Armstrong spoke
briefly on the Flowersview
sewage issue. McRae said
"I do not live in a vacuum.
I make decisions based on
facts."
Sexton emotionally re-
minded the crowd, "I love
Paxton. I have never done
anything against the city.
You all had us condemned.
Don't be stabbing someone
in the back until you know
what you're stabbing."
A vote by roll call was
then taken. All four Coun-
cil members, Kemp, Arm-
strong, McRae and Sexton
voted "nay" to annexation of
both parcels. The first read-
ing having failed, no second
reading of the ordinance
will be scheduled. The spe-
cial meeting was then ad-
journed.

WCFR officials remind all
citizens to change batteries
in their smoke detectors


According to the National
Fire Protection Association,
smoke alarms play a vi-
tal role in reducing deaths
and injuries from fire and
have contributed to almost
50 percent decrease in fire
deaths since the late 1970s.
Daylight Savings Time
is used as a reminder to citi-
zens by many fire depart-
ments around the country
to change out the batteries
in smoke detectors so they
will always be at peak per-
formance.


"We'll even assist the
elderly and disabled in
Walton County to change
their batteries," says Wal-
ton County Assistant Fire
Chief Johnny Padgett, "and
provide a smoke detector to
them if they don't already
have one."
Citizens in need of such
support can. call Walton
County Fire Rescue at (850)
892-6162, or their local fire
department for inquiries
into such services.

AWARD FT
ry to his family's 316-acre
tree farm. The farm is locat-
ed about 10 miles north of
DeFuniak Springs on U.S.
331. 1
Martha Pridgen, Steve's
mother, recently received
the FFA's Outstanding Tree
Farmer of the Year award
for 2007. The Pridgen family
purchased the land from the
Jackson Lumber Company
in the 1940s and received


ROM FRONT
state certification in 1986.
Jeff Doran, executive
vice-president of the FFA,
kicked off the tour by cit-
ing the Pridgen tree farm
as a prime example of sus-
tained forestry. "They put
their heart and soul in it,"
Doran said of the more than
300,000 private forest own-
ers in the state.
John Gould, the FFA's
2006 honoree, presented


a certificate to Steve, who
manages the forest land for
his mother.
Before the tour began,
Steve spoke of "the pure
love of seeing what God has
created" and his passion for
tree farming. "I never gave
much thought to timber un-
til 2000," he said, and add-
ed that Southern Forestry
Consultants played a piv-
otal role in the tree farm's
success.
The tour group explored
logging deck areas that are
also kept open for wildlife.
Mike Goodchild of IFAS


briefly discussed some of the
soil testing that was taking
place there.
A significant area of the
tree farm is dedicated to lon-
gleaf pines planted in Janu-
ary 2005. Wes Pruet, from
Southern Forestry Consul-
tants, described the burning
and spraying that occurred
prior to planting the trees.
"The trees are looking
good," said Walton County
Forester Lea Anna Melton,
who nominated Martha
Pridgen for the FFA award.
Steve said the pine trees
planted 30 years earlier
were not managed properly.
He emphasized how impor-
tant planning and manage-


ment is to a successful tree,
farm. "You have to look at
the end result," he said. "I
learned the hard way."
The final portion of the
tour examined the Pridgen
tree farm's involvement in
an experiment to eliminate
cogongrass, a South Ameri-
can invasive species. Rick
Williams, an extension for-
estry specialist from the
University of Florida, ex-
plained that the plant can
"grow through a tin can." He
said if cows eat the plant at
its mature stage, the cogon-
grass can shred the animals'
mouths to pieces. "It's a huge
problem," he said.
Steve Jennings, from the


Division of Forestry, added
that cogongrass is "all over
the south and will destroy
our native vegetation. This
plant right here is the big-
gest threat to the state of
Florida."
After the tour, guests
were treated to lunch from
Pig Daddy's restaurant.
Steve Pridgen has a day
job, but he can usually be
spotted on the forest land
every weekend. "This is
something you do because
you enjoy it," he said. "I'm
pretty much up here every
Saturday from daylight to
dark. It takes a lot of time,
effort, and work to keep it
looking halfway decent."

ing to fuel the massive fire
was a propane bottle left
turned on found inside the
couple's home. Damage to
the home was estimated at
$160,000.
After the fire was extin-
guished, firefighters talked
with neighbors who indi-
cated suspicious elements

couple's actions. BFAI de-
tectives were called into de-
termine the origin and cause
of the fire, which included
on-scene investigation and
forensic testing which sub-
sequently revealed the fire


had been intentionally set.
The bureau also determined
that Dalton checked himself

ing of the house fire.

THE EXPRESSIONS on the faces


CAPT. JACK SPARROW braved the Spanish Maim:to in-...,


Sara Comander 'Winded,
but happy. "Nothing can
beat the smiles on these
children's faces. The par-
ents are happier, too. It's
safe, controlled, notraf-
fic and plenty of police on'
hand.'It's just a'wonder-
ful time for everybody.",
Halloween was a huge
success, by anyone's'stan-
dards. Circle Drive was a
busy place, too,, as more
businesses set up on
lawns to hand out candy.
The DeFuniak Springs
Women's Club sponsored
the Circle Drive event,
which was designed to
take some of the load off
of Circle Drive residents
who were inundated with,
little trick or theaters.

Other events also drew
vehicular traffic to Circle,
Drive. A Christian youth
concert took 'place at
the amphitheater in the
,Lakeyard and more than
one church hosted fall
festivals.
All in all, it was spec-
tacular night for children
of all ages.


By RONKELLEY
Downtown DeFuniak
Springs was invaded by
a horde of pirates, genies,
witches, and super heroes'
Wednesday evening with
one thing on their minds
- candy and lots of it!
'' Baldwin Avenue was
closed to all traffic from:
9th Street to 6th Street,
giving parents a safe,
open area for kids to seek
sweet treats. Business
owners and staff from
around the city lined the
sidewalks with tables
loaded with treats of ev-
ery kind and flavor. There
was no* short-age of tak-
ers. Happy faces smiled
from behind grease-paint
and makeup, masks and
disguises. Each had a bag
full of candy and the ex-
citement of thousands of
'delighted children was in
the air.
The DeFuniak Busi-
ness and Professional As-
sociation sponsored the
event, now in its 16th
year. An estimated 3,000
children participated,

Chelsey Marie Sword,

4/23/94-11/11/05
I don't know what's worse,
My baby sister being in heaven, or me being on earth.
Our lives will never be the same with the emptiness
and pain you will forever be in our hearts
We Iove and miss you,
Your family and friend


Forever Gone But
Forever in Our
hearts

The caring prayers, the
shaking shock.
This awful news my
world did rock.
No one knew how it
happened or why.
We were all so sad, it
made me cry.
How unfair it should have
happened now
Won't someone ever tell
me how? *
Her tears had dried, her
pain had healed;
And God chose this time
for her life to yield.
It's later now, while we've
moved on
We miss her as though
she had just gone.
We'll never forget all the
good she did,
Even though, to her our
farewells we've bid.
Even though, to her our
farewells we've bid.
We love her still, we miss
her yet;
And on this I'll forever
bet.
If she is truly in our
hearts,
From us she'll never part.
Chelsey, I will never forget
the 'good times we had. You
will always be my best friend
and be in my heart.
I love you,
Jasmine Minniefield


Friends until the end

We used to talk,
We used to laugh,
We were best of friends,
I thought that's how it would
always be.
You taught me so much
Told me exactly what to say,
I wish it were still the same.
But someday I know it will,
maybe not today,
But we'll meet up again,
It won't be long until I see
your face,
In Heaven that marvelous
day.

I love and miss you,
Lauren


Chelsey,
You will always be in our
hearts and will never be
forgotten., ......... :
f .....* We love you,
Derek Glenn


Who You'd Be Today

Sunny days seem to
hurt the most,
I wear the pain like a
heavy coat. I feel you
everywhere I go, I see your
smile, I see your face,
I hear you laughing'
in the rain,
I still can't believe
you're gone..

It ain't fair: you died too
young, Like the story that
had just begun,
But death tore the pages
all away.
God knows how I
miss you,
All the hell that I've been
through,
Just known' no-one could
take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Would you see the world?
Would you chase your
dreams?
Settle down with a family,
I wonder what would you
name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue,
I feel like I can talk to you,
An' I know it might
sound crazy.

It ain't fair: you died too
young, Like the story that
had just begun,
But death tore the pages
all away.
God knows how I
miss you,
All the hell that I've been
through,
Just known' no-one could
take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

To day, today, today,
To day, today, today.

Sunny days seem to hurt
the most,
I wear the pain like a
heavy coat,
The only thing that gives
me hope, is I know I'll see
you again some day.

Some day, some day,
some day.


My Letter to Heaven

I would like to send a
letter to heaven, O
and address it with'love,
My child has left
this world,
to be with the Lord above.

I would tell her that I
love her, and that I miss
her loving touch,
I would say we're lost
without her and we miss
her---oh so much.

I would ask if she could
visit, if we promised
not to cry,
Maybe one more time
to see her,
We forgot to say good-by.

We will try to control
our emotions
we truly feel we could.
So please--we need a
visit, we promise
we'll be good.

It is so hard, we miss her.
Oh, Lord, this feeling
is the worst,
We know you gave
her to us,
yes, we know you had
her first.

But you called her
prematurely,
I'm sorry I question
your will,
I know you have
your reasons,
but Lord--I miss her still.

If you'd only make an
exception please consider
what we plea,
It is so hard accepting
that my daughter--I will
never see.

Oh Baby I write you this
letter with all the love there
is to be had,
Because it's just not me
who's hurting, there's your
brother who is sad.

We need so much to see
you, then we'll try to let
you rest,
But if not in this world,
baby, then we'll see you in
the next.

So I'm sending a letter to
heaven, and pray you hear
my plea,
But if the answer is not
what I'm asking--Lord come
and rescue me.

Walton boys golf team

2007 NCAA Football

Rankings 11B


Marianna uses running game to drop Walton 34-7


By PATRICK CASEY
Bradley Battles ran for
244 yards and Ren Williams
added 184 as Marianna
dominated Walton with a
two-pronged rushing attack
as the Bulldogs defeated the
Braves 34-7.
Marianna turned the Dis-
trict 1, Class 3A battle for a
playoff berth into a runaway
by scoring 26 points in the
first half. Battles had scor-


ing runs of 20 and 3 yards
and caught a fourth down
pass for an 11-yard touch-
down to build a 20-0 lead in
the second quarter.
Walton responded with
their only score of the night
as Deron Hogans took a
screen pass 77 yards for a
touchdown to cut the deficit
to 20-7 midway through the
second quarter of play.
However, Walton could


not stop the Bulldogs on
their next possession as Ren
Williams broke loose on a
50-yard touchdown run with
less than a minute to go in
the first half to give Mari-
anna a 26-7 margin at the
half.
After picking off a Keke
Aguilar pass on Walton's
opening possession of the
second half, the Bulldogs
went back to work with a


seven-play, 77-yard drive
that saw Williams crash in
from a yard out to give Mar-
ianna a 34-7 lead.
Walton threatened on
their next three possessions
to put points on the board
but Marianna's defense
stopped them each time.
The Braves went 0-for-4 on
fourth down conversions
during the game.
The 463 rushing yards


Bulldogs rally, but fall short to Sneads


allowed by Walton were
the most since Jacksonville
Trinity Christian ran for an
incredible 646 yards in an
opening round playoff game
against Walton in 1999.
Wakulla was the last oppo-
nent in the regular season
to top the amount of yard-
age allowed against Mari-
anna as the War Eagles to-
taled 506 rushing yards in a
game played against Walton
in September of 1999 in a
61-42 win over the Braves.
Wakulla's Vince Nelson ran
for 305 yards against Wal-


ton in that contest on thatT
night.
The win allows Marianna!
(6-3) the honor of traveling
to Madison County for a!
first round playoff date with'
the Cowboys, who crushed?
Marianna 42-0 last season. j
Walton (7-2) will wrap;
up the 2007 season with aD
home game against Frank.-
lin County. The Seahawksi
are 0-9 on the year and wilt-
face the Braves at 7 p.m?
at Everett Yates Memorial
Stadium on Friday, Novem-
ber 9. .


By CHUCK HINSON
The Freeport Bulldogs
got the game rolling with a
13-play, 70-yard drive that
led to the first six points of
the game being put on the
board, thanks to a 15-yard
reception by Jamison Hen-
shaw. After the fake punt
and two-point conversion by
Josh Dorso, the Bulldogs led
8-0, but the lead did not last
long.
On Freeport's second pos-
session, they began to move
the ball into Snead's terri-
tory, but soon the Pirates
struck and a pass by Cole
Weeks was intercepted.
That was all it took.


Freeport fell behind 20-8
later in the second quarter
and tried to rally in the sec-
ond half of the game. It was
not enough and the Bull-
dogs fell 26-18, ending their
chances to advance onto a
District 1-A play-off.
The Bulldogs scored
once again when they had
a 10-play, 48-yard drive to
close the gap to within five
points. The final score for
the Bulldogs came when
they attempted to get into
the endzone. They fell short
and had to settle for a three-
point field goal.
Their last attempt came
when they were on the Pi-
rate's 20 yard-line, but the


drive was stalled at the 19
yard-line and the Pirates


took over with 28 seconds
remaining on the clock.

Seahawks plucked by Chiefs


By CHUCK HINSON
The Northview Chiefs
took advantage of a first-
half scoring spree to take
possession of the second half
and left the Seahawks score-
less. The loss cancelled any
chance for the Seahawks to
make it to the district play-
offs. The final score, 42-0.
Just a week earlier,
the Seahawks traveled to
Bonifay and beat Holmes
County, giving themselves
a chance to place in the dis-
trict, but they couldn't get
past Northview to get that
opportunity.
In the first half, the
Chiefs rushed for 147 yards
and threw for 107 yards.
They totaled 302 yards on
the ground, while senior Na-
kita Miles led the way with
a total of 195 yards, includ-
ing two rushes that resulted
in touchdowns and a catch
for the third TD.
South Walton was only
able to total 51 yards on


the ground. The Seahawks
rushed for a total of 96
yards, with Kenzie Clem-
mons racking up 75 of those


yards.
Northview quarterback
Jeff Price completed 9-of-13
passes for 159 yards.


SOUTH WALTON'S JAKE HAWKINS picks up a few
more yards during their game against Northview. The Sea-
hawks fell to the Cheifs, 42-0.

Gators win easily over Vandy


By CHUCK HINSON
The Florida Gators had
no problem with SEC con-
ference co-member, Vander-
bilt. Florida won 41-34 and
moved from No. 18 to No. 15
in the BCS bowl.

Florida was chang-
ing their look, their ap-
proach, team positions and
their game plans before tak-
ing on the Commodores. The


Gators were trying to turn
the page on their season
record after losing the last
three of four games.

Percy Harvin was the
turnaround guy for the Ga-
tors when he became the
first player in school history.
to reach 100 yards rushing
and receiving in the same
game. He also ran 11 times
for 113 yards and two touch-


downs.
Andre Caldwell also
shined on the field, catching
nine passes and running for
103 yards and two touch-
downs. Brandon James had
three returns for 116, yards.
Florida quarterback Tim
Tebow completed 22-27
passes for 281 yards and
three touchdowns. He also
ran for 35 yards and two
solo scores.


With that combined yard-
age, Florida was able to run
the entire game from the
toss of the coin. The win put
Florida one more win closer
fo a Southeast Conference
title.

Florida '(6-3, 4-3 SEC)
takes on former head coach
Steve Spurrier and the
South Carolina, Gamecocks
next Saturday.


'Noles clip Boston Eagles


By CHUCK HINSON
It looked like the Florida
State team of the 90s. The
2007 Florida team was able
to pass and catch the ball,
cross the goal line with flare
and did so repeatedly. FSU
toppled .the No. 2-ranked
Boston College, an ACC
rival, with a final score of
27-17.

The Eagles joined other
teams like Michigan, USC,
Florida and several other



Bulls/(

By CHUCK HINSON
SMiami (5-4, 2-3 ACC),
who celebrated 10 days ago
After their win over Florida
State, felt the pain of de-
feat to a much weaker team
this past weekend when
they fell to North Carolina
State. It was NC State's Ste-
ven Hauschka's fourth field
goal, a 42-yarder in over-
tIme, that gave the visiting
team the 19-16 win.
I He made three field goals
in the final quarter of the
game as the Wolfpack (4-5,
_-3 ACC) stormed back in
the final minutes of the game
tp tie the Hurricanes and
then ultimately win their
third straight game of the
season the first win in the


NCAA powerhouses that
were knocking on the door
of the No. 1 spot for a fourth
week in-a-row.

The Seminoles (6-3, 3-3
ACC) controlled the entire
game, never allowing Bos-
ton College (8-1, 4-1 ACC) to
top their score and that will
probably keep Eagles quar-
terback Matt Ryan from
getting the nod he needed
for the Heismann Trophy.
The:victory, was die in-


part to the quick hands of
the Florida State defense.
Geno Hayes capped-off the
game with less than a min-
ute remaining and snagged
the third Ryan interception
and ran it back for a final
touchdown that gave ..the
Eagles their first loss of the
season.
Seminoles' quarterback
Drew Weatherford made his
return to the position, domi-
nating the offensive drive
by the Noles. He completed.


29-of-45 passes for 354 yards
and hit Preston Parker nine
times for a total of 93 yards
and a touchdown. De' Cody
Fagg also shined for the of-
fense with six catches for
111 yards and a TD.

Despite his interceptions,
Boston College's Ryan set a
school record with his fourth
career 400-yard game, tying
Doug Flutie for the most in
school history. Flutie was in
attendance at the game,


anes handed losses


Orange Bowl for Wolfpack
head coach Tom O'Brien.
'Daniel Evans was
19-for-40 passing 207 yards
for N.C. State.
Miami lost the ACC con-
ference game, despite run-
ning 60 times for 314 yards
against the ACC's worst
defense. Unfortunately, the
Hurricanes fell apart in the
quarterback and kicker po-
sition. Kirby Freeman only
completed 1-of-14 passes for
84 yards and threw three
interceptions, while Mi-
ami kicker Daren Daly had
about the same misfortune
with his two missed field
goals, including a 27-yard
attempt during overtime.
A little closer to home, the


No 20-ranked University of
South Florida had its own
troubles this past weekend
as they took another blow
on the field and were hand-
ed their third-straight loss
by Cincinnati. Final score,
38-33.
Antwuan Giddens scored
on a 63-yard reception and
recovered a blocked punt
in the end zone for a sec-
ond touchdown, giving the
Bearcats,(7-2, 2-2) their sec-
ond straight win of the sea-
son. Combined with quarter-
back Ben Mauk, who threw
three TD passes, and a de-
fense that forced eight turn-
overs, including four inter-
ceptions, Cincinnati had all
they needed to bring down


the Top 25-ranked Bulls.
Matt Grothe, who threw
for 375 yards and one touch-
down, had one of his worst
games of his career at USF
(6-3, 1-3). He threw three
interceptions' and a fumble.
This loss has taken the
Bulls far away from the No.
2 spot they held three weeks
ago, even out of the Top 25
rankings.

Fishing after cold fronts


By Scott Suggs
First, let me say that, as
an angler, I understand that
:bass fishing after a cold front
.can be very frustrating. Es-
:pecially if you fish in areas
'with Florida-strain large-
mouth bass, cold fronts can
pretty much be the excuse
you need to park the boat
and head to a dele a'ta nd or
sit in the house and watch
football.

But cold fronts are just
a fact of life for most of the
country from about October
through April. That's a long
period of time to simply give
up on bass fishing. Those
fish have to eat at some
Joint during this six-month
-tretch; fish are going to be
caught by someone some-
where. I figure that might
as well be me. So learning
to deal with the effects of
cold fronts as it relates to
.bass fishing is the first step
towards keeping my days on
the water successful when
everyone else has packed it
in for the year, leaving you


on the water with cold air.
temperatures and bluebird
skies.
As the air temperature
cools from a cold front, the
surface temperature of the
water will also begin to
cool. This will force bass in
shallow water to seek hold-
ing h~eis in deeper water
where the temineriature will
be warmer. I use my elec-
tronics to find brush piles
in deep water or deep-water
ledges near channel swings
or secondary points. Once I
find them I do like to use a
jig or a drop shot, something
with a vertical presentation.
A %-ounce football jig tipped
with a Berkley PowerBait.
Chigger Craw and dragged
slowly through these areas
can be very effective. Drop
shooting a Berkley Gulp!
Sinking Minnow can be ef-
fective, too. Just shake the
rod tip, trying not to move
the bait too far.
Sometimes smaller baits
can be they key, too. If you
normally catch fish on a
10-inch Berkley PowerBait


BASS CLUB looking for new members. The club was es-
tablished in 2004 for couples who enjoy fishing together as
an outlet or opportunity to meet and fish with other couples
who share the same interests.
The club principle is based on social interaction, friend-
ly
competition and the simple enjoyment of fishing. If inter-
ested in becoming a member, call (850) 836-5107 or visit
our website at ggbassclub@cox.net.


Power Worm, try a 6-inch
worm; same goes for stick-
and creature-style baits.
Being cold blooded the body
temperature of a bass is
regulated by its environ-
ment. When the water cools,
they become lethargic and
their metabolism slows. Big
meals aren't needed, but a
easy meal one that won't
require much .work to cap-
ture or consume is always
welcome.

Don't overlook tight
cover, either. Bushes, root
balls, dock pilings, logs and
rock can sometimes draw
in large numbers of bass.
They will huddle in these
protected areas where the
water temps are move sta-
ble. Trying pitching jigs or
wacky rigged soft plastics
like a PowerBait Fat Dover
Crawler in these areas and
let them sink. It might take
some time, but you can catch
these fish.
More than anything, fish-
ing after a cold front requires
anglers to slow down. The


bass are going to be moving
and reacting slowly, so .your
presentation should not
be fast. Bait like Gulp! are
ideal for slow presentations
.because the scent and flavor
that are built into the baits
works even better when
fished slowly. The scent
clouds will fill the area and
actually draw in fish even
lethargic ones in search of
an easy meal.

Fishing after cold fronts
isn't ideal, but don't let low
air temperatures keep you
off the water. This time of
the year can yield some very
big fish that have been gorg-
ing on the shad that spawn
in the backs of coves. Plus,
there won't be much boat
traffic. Just change your
tactics a little and go catch
some big bass while every-
one else is sitting around
the house.
Scott Suggs is the 2007
FLW Champion and the
first angler in professional
bass fishing to win $1 mil-
lion in a single tournament.

Walton boys golf team returns from state tourney


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves golf
team improved upon last
year's state golf tournament
performance by placing 13th
out of 16 schools in atten-
dance as the squad shot a
655 over the two- day event
held at the Southern Dunes
Golf and Country Club in
Haines City, the site of the
boys Class A event.
Walton posted a 328 on
the opening day, played in a
light mist, then followed up
with a 327 on a windy, but
sunnier day the next day.
Paul McClure led .the
way as he shot a 73 on the
opening day, then followed
with a 74 to earn a tie for
sixth place overall at the
event. He finished five shots
behind Phillip Choi, of Or-
lando Circle Christian, who
won the event with a 71-71
for a 142 total, two shots un-
der par for the course.
Walton finished 65 shots
behind team champion Or-
lando Circle Christian, who
won the state golf title with
a 590 total.
The Walton High School
boys golf team reached the
state tournament after fin-
ishing second at the Class A


Regional at the Southwood
Golf Club in Tallahassee.
Walton shot a 316 to fin-
ish behind Pensacola Cath-
olic's 299 to qualify for a
berth to the state golf cham-
pionship in Class A. Walton
defeated Wakulla and Tal-
lahassee Maclay by seven
strokes to earn a trip to the
Southern Dunes Golf Club
for the state championship
match.
Paul McClure and Aaron
Timmons both shot a 75
while Heath Morgan carded
a 76. Sean Carter and Dylan
Laird both came in with a
90.
Brooke Windham com-
peted as an individual in the
girls competition and shot a
112.
South Walton's boys team
also competed in the region-
al event and finished in eight
place out of nine teams com-
peting. Blake Ruden shot an
81 with Billy Davis coming
in at 82 and Jerod Kane at
87 while Mike McCall shot a
111.
The Freeport girls squad
finished in eighth place as a
team at the regional event
with Joslyn King shooting
a 104, Allison Erwin a i119,
fIU^


Bridgette Hamilton a 126
and Maggie Tousignant a
152.
"It was a tough match on
a windy day," Walton Coach
Stan Bosenberg commented
after the totals were posted.
"We wanted to win the re-
gional, but Pensacola Cath-
olic is always so tough. They
shot well. Heath Morgan
had a 32 on the front side,
but we struggled-a little on
the back side. The wind got
up and caused us (and ev-
erybody)-some problems."
"Earning a trip to state
in back-to-back years is
what you play for. I couldn't
be prouder of this group.
They have worked hard and
earned it."
Senior Aaron Timmons
commented after returning
from the state tourney,"It
was cold and windy for
last year's state tourney in
South Florida. The weather
was a little better, but it
still rained and was very
windy,"
Last year, Walton was
the only public school at the
event among 16 entrants in
Class A. This year they were
one of two, as Inverness Cit-
rus was the other, finishing


one shot behind Walton for
14th place.
"It wasn't my best day,"
said Sean Carter after shoot-
ing a 90 at Southwood in the
regional. "But we are mak-
ing the trip for the second
straight year." Carter im-
proved on his -performance
in Haines City as he shot an
85 and an 82 to hold the sec-
ond best score on Walton's
team with a combined 167.
McClure, a sophomore,
tied with Timmons for fifth
place overall at the region-
al as both received ribbons
for their performances. "It
was a tight match. We had
played here a few .times
this year, but the wind got
up and putts didn't seem to
fall as much." McClure took
.charge in the state tourney
as he finished in a tie for 6th
place overall and led Walton
with a 73-74,for a 147 total.
Heath Morgan, a junior
who shot 88-84 at the state
tournament said, "It was an
accomplishment to get here
and improve upon last year.
Paul and I (the underclass-
men) want to make it three
in a row next year."
"I couldn't have asked
for a better group of guys.


They get along well, play
hard, play the game the
right way," Stan Bosenberg
added, after returning from


the trip. "The chemistry has
been good and we will have
a lot of work to do to get back
to this point next season."

at the Class A golf tourney in Haines City last week.,

International


airport breaks


ground near


West Bay


By DOTTY NIST
"Congratulations, north-
west Florida, you are now
truly open for business,"
was the message relayed by
Florida Governor Charlie
Crist as around a thousand
people gathered near West
Bay to witness a ceremonial
groundbreaking for the new
Panama City-Bay County
International Airport.
Attendees were shuttled
in by the busload to the air-
port site north of West Bay,
not far from the Bay-Walton
County line, for the Nov. 1
event. Organizers had origi-
nally expected about 100
people to attend and were
astonished to get 10 times
as many RSVPs in response
to invitations.


"This is very posi-
tive for the area,
commented State Repre-
sentative Don Brown (R-De-
Funiak Spring).

Bay County dignitaries'
and citizens were joined
by their counterparts from
neighboring counties, with
Walton County well repre-
sented.
"This is very positive for
the area," commented State
Representative Don Brown
(R-DeFuniak Springs).

Gov. Crist could not be pres-.

glowing recorded commen-
tary that was played at the
event by Stephanie Kopelou-

Transportation secretary.
"This is America's first

proclaimed in his message.

Second annual 'Cottage


for Kids' going green


By JEFFREY POWELL
For the second year in a
row, the Rosemary Beach
Foundation is preparing
to host the Children's Vol-
unteer Health Network
(CVHN) 'Cottage for Kids'
benefit. The event is held
annually to benefit the
health and happiness of the
children in the local commu-
nity. This year the CVHN
will present thirteen play-
houses donated through the
generosity of local builders
and designers to be sold at
auction.
This years theme is 'going
green' as the builders, ar-
chitects and designers have
aspired to incorporate green
principals that are healthier
and longer-lasting. By using


materials that are less-toxic
and designed in concert with
the environment, the CVHN
hopes to educate children
during the event, about the
importance of caring for
the world they live in. Alys
Beach Environmental Con-
sultant Christian Wagley
will be on hand to answer
any questions that the chil-
dren or their
parents may have.
"Last year's Cottage for
Kids auction was success-
ful because of the dedica-
tion, creativity, quality and
attention to detail that our
local professional home-
builders and other partners
put into their playhouses,"
said co-chairperson Susan
Breeden. "This year, we are


seeing creativity taken to
a whole new level. We are.
extremely grateful to all
our participants for their
hard work and dedication
in building these charming
playhouses."
In addition to the play-
houses, there will also be a
number of canine cottages
and birdhouses offered dur-
ing the auction.
Opening day on Novem-
ber 10 will consist of a rib-
bon cutting ceremony at 10
a.m. with tours till 3 p.m.
On November 11,17,18,21
and 23, tours will be con-
ducted from 11 a.m. until 3
p.m. The raffle will be held
on November 24 at 1 p.m.
with auction starting at 2
p.m.


corridor
By DOTTY NIST
Walton County is consid-
ering changes to its land de-
'velopment code that would
include CR-83, CR-283,
CR-395, and CR-393 in the
CR-30A Scenic Corridor,
along with some proposed
changes to design standard
regulations that now apply
to properties on that scenic
corridor.
The Walton County De-
sign Review Board (DRB)
reviewed the proposed land
development code changes
on Nov. 1 in public session.
The board members also
reviewed an ordinance that
would change responsibility
for requests for variances
from their decisions.
The stated purpose of the
CR-30A Scenic Corridor is
"to preserve and maximize
views of the Gulf of Mexico,
to enhance the visual char-
acteristics of the roadway
corridor, and to eliminate
clutter." Its regulations,
applying to setbacks and
building widths, landscap-
ing, driveways and parking,
signage, right-of-way use,
fences and walls, are less
detailed than those apply-
ing to'the U.S. 98/U.S. 331


South Scenic Corridor.
Among the proposed re-:
quirements would be that,
new buildings on lots on ei-
ther side of the roadway, and-
on lots between the roadway
and the Gulf, would not be.
able to exceed 65 percent of
the lot. There would be an'
exemption for single-family
homes.
The proposed changes;
set standards for fences!

Soldier's mother grateful


for contributions


By JEFFREY POWELL
"How do you say thank-
you, other than saying
thank-you," said Glenda
Penton reflectively. "Timmy
would be proud of this ef-
fort."
Timmy, of course, was
U.S. Army Sergeant Timo-
thy P. Padgett, who was
killed in action on May 8,
2007 at Tarin Kwot, Af-
ghanistan. I
Shortly after Padgett
arrived in Afghanistan he
asked his mother to gather
up any stuffed animals she
could get her hands on and
send them to the children
of this war. ravaged coun-
try. According to him, most
- if not all of these children
had never had a toy of their
own. Penton was happy to


fulfill her son's request and.
set out immediately on her
mission.
Over time she realized
that the expense of this ef-
fort was to much for her to
handle alone and began ac-
cepting donations from the
citizens of the area. Much
to her delight, the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce recently contributed
$250 toward her effort.
"Of course, all contribu-
tions, be it stuffed animals'
or a monetary donation, are
appreciated," said Penton.
"I would like to give a spe-
cial thanks to the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce for their generosity."
The Chamber's donation
was made on October 24 at
their annual meeting. Pen-
ton went to the Santa Rosa


Post Office the next day
and mailed sixteen boxes
to Afghanistan using those
funds.
Although Penton has put
her heart and soul into this
effort, she realizes that it
may be time to focus her en-
ergy into other things.
"I am hopeful that my
mission will be complete by
the end of 2007," she said. "I
have enough animals to see
this through. After the first
of the year, I am going to
concentrate on new endeav-
ors."
Monetary donations can
still be made at either the
Supervisor of Elections of-
fice in DeFuniak Springs
or the South Walton Court-
house Annex in Santa Rosa

Water Conservation:


Washing Machines


%A \ashing machine is the second largest water user in
your home, with toilets being first. A traditional \\ash-
ing machine uses approximately 41 gallons per load.
The best wx ay to lower this usage is to buy a high
efficiency w ashing machine. These machines use 35-
50% less water and 50% less energy per load. This will
save you money on both your water and energy bills.


No matter what kind of washing machine you have,
here are some basic tips that can reduce water use
for washing clothes:


* Operate the washer with full loads only even if the
machine has an adjustable load setting. A full load
is the most efficient way to w\\ash clothes.


If your washer has a \variable water volume
setting, select the minimum amount required
per load.


Pre-treat stains to avoid rehashing.


Use the shortest \\ash cycle for lightly soiled loads.


Check your washing machine hoses regularly
for cracks that could result in leaks.

Mary Nielson, owner
of parcels along CR-30A,
urged clarification of some
language in the proposed
changes. She suggested ta-
bling this ordinance for ad-
ditional clarification work.

The DRB members voted
7-0 in favor of the scenic cor-

changes. It will be subject to
a final decision by the Wal-

County Zoning Board of Ad-
justments (ZBA) responsible
for hearing requests for vari-
ances from DRB decisions.
Up to now, county code has
provided for the DRB to
hear requests for variances

The proposed ordinance
that would make this change
also included language em-
powering the ZBA to grant
a variance if "the variance
will allow the developer to
create a unique architectur-
al feature that will enhance
the scenic corridor."
Board member Bob John-
son objected that the term
"unique architectural fea-

the effect would be that
"it guts the scenic corridor
guidelines."
He and the other board
members requested remov-

Florida's delicious history: a


gastronomic journey through


modern Florida


By JEFFREY POWELL
"Everyday food has a ten-
dency to disappear into the
landscape and to be taken
for granted," said Andrew
Huse. "The media and aca-
demia are finally catching
up and looking at food cul-
ture as a serious topic."
House is an assistant li-
brarian at the University
of South Florida's (USF)
Special Collections Depart-
ment and Florida Studies
Center in Tampa. He has
done extensive research
and is passionate about
the social impacts and his-
tory of something most of
us take for granted food.
He lectures about Florida's
food culture and currently
teaches a Florida gastrono-
my graduate course for the
Florida Studies Program at
USF.
Huse recently made his
presentation to a very well-
attended session at the Her-
itage Museum of Northwest
Florida in Valparaiso. The
October 26 lecture covered
the culture of food from the
Seminole days up to the
present.
"All Floridians are im-
migrants in some way,"
said Huse, "and immigrants
bring with them their food
and culture."
Native Americans took
advantage of the large array
of seafood and shellfish and
developed man-made tide-
waters to make harvesting
more simple. Later, white
settlers discovered things
such as swamp cabbage, to-
day known as heart of palm.
Later still, the large number
of Latin immigrants brought
with them spices and a love
for coffee.


Huse also focused on the
difficult Jim Crow-years in
Florida when African Amer-
icans could not be seated in
white-only restaurants.
"The irony was that a
black man could cook your
dinner but he could not sit
down and eat it with you,"'
Huse said. "Integration was
an effort to be seated at the
nation's table."
Friday's lecture was made


possible by a grant from the
Florida Humanities Coun-
cil, the state affiliate of the
National Endowment for
the Humanities.
"We are delighted to host
another Florida Humani-
ties Road Scholar," said
Heritage. Museum Director
Michelle Severino. "Andrew
has a great depth and scope
of information on Florida's
food industry."

Britney Spears since she hit

90s.

With her latest drama and
childcare legal issues, the

than 20 photographersand ,.
reporters w ill be waiting out-
side a restaurant, a clothing
store, and even outside a
restroom to get a snapshot of
the celebrity at her worst.
Other celebs such as
Lindsey Lohan, Brad Pitt,
Angelina Jolie and other
high-profile performers, also
feel the sting of fame and are
constantly trying to "avoid"
the press. But is it really all
that bad for these press
hounded personalities?
As the saying goes, "you

the press has hounded her
and written stories of her life
and lack of husband-keeping
abilities. Always wanting
press when she was pushing
her fragrances or perfumes,
she then scorns the peeping
paparazzi when her string of
husbands file into the divorce
courts.
From "People Magazine,"
"US Magazine," "Entertain-

rags, to celeb watchers on
"Talk Soup" and 'TMZ" they
have made millions off the
exploitation of the Hollywood
population. Once just a

"TMZ" now has their own
television program on FOX,
that not only snoops into
their lives, but also makes
fun of some of the ridiculous
actions by celebs unfortunate
enough to be caught by one
of their cameras.
So many fans, star wor-
shippers and Internet
,;bloggers have pleaded for the,
press to stop hounding
Hollywood's golden children.
They siy that they need their
personal life and time to find
true happiness inside the
L.A. hot spots and trend-set-
ting clubs.

Angelina Jolie's demanding

school be shut down so they
can pull up to the front door

HOT DOGS roasted over an open fire are the main course during the SWCC B&ck to
Nature Festival October 20. SWCC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and
protecting Walton County's natural resources.


GUESTS WARM UP up by the bonfire prior to an Astronomy Walk, led by naturalist Christian Wagley on October 20 at

,AIRPORT ,
bon Society told the gather-
ing that the airport will be
"built to the highest envi-
ronmental standards."
The airport, which is to
initially occupy 1,300 acres,
is part of a 4,000-acre tract
donated by the St. Joe Coin-
pany. The airport project is
one part of the West Bay
SSector Plan, developed by
Bay County leaders and
citizens for a total of 75,000
acres. To be included in the
plan will be commercial, in-
dustrial and residential land
uses, along with the West
Bay Preservation area, over
40,000 acres that St. Joe is
pledging to preserve perma-
nently in its natural state.
The preservation area in-
cludes important watershed
and natural habitat sur-
rounding West Bay. It is to

FROM FRONT


feature a nature center to be
established by the Audubon
Society.
Don Crisp, past Bay
County Airport Authority
chair, described an effort to
improve and expand air ser-
vice to the area that has in-
volved three successive gov-
ernors, culminating with the
current new airport project,
which, he remarked, will
"preserve the rich heritage
of our area while taking
hold of the future."
In thanking many who
were involved, Crisp did not
leave out critics and project
detractors, who, he noted,
through their input spurred
project proponents to "do a
better job of making it bet-
ter," from economic and en-
vironmental perspectives.
Crisp also' was grateful
for support from communi-
ty members and officials in
surrounding counties, who,
he remarked, have been con-
sistently supportive of their
new airport, in contrast
with Bay County commu-
nity, where the project has
been more controversial,
Joe Tannehill, current
airport chair, said that even
he wasn't convinced at first
that the airport should be
moved from its current loca-
tion in downtown Panama
City. Tannehill also ad-
mitted that activity at the
current airport has slowed
down in recent years.
Tannehill said the solu-
tion is to get reasonable,
competitive air fares, which
will happen with the new
airport. He added that the
new facility will prevent air


carriers from being lost. Top
needs are a legacy carrier
and a discount carrier, he
also explained.
"I promise you from the
bottom of my heart, it's
gonna happen," he told the
gathering.
Dissent over the new air-
port is not dead. Bay County
resident Glenn Jones was in
attendance at the ground-
breaking, charging that the
new facility is an unneces-
sary expense to taxpayers
that will benefit Walton
County but not Bay County.
A Florida environmental
organization, the Clean Wa-
ter Network, has also gone
on record in opposition to
the new airport, calling it
"the airport to nowhere."
Construction is expected
to begin within the next
few weeks, and completion
of the new Panama City-
Bay County International
Airport is expected in early
2010.


RELOCATION OF the Panama City-Bay County International Airport from its current
downtown Panama City location to the West Bay site has been one of the most controversial
issues to face Bay County over the past decade. This Bay County citizen attended the cer-
emony to protest the new airport. (Photo by Dotty Nist)

OWC Trustees re-hire Bob Richburg


as president with four-year contract


SYMBOLIC OF the stated commitment to environmen-
tal protection as the new airport is developed, West Bay
Elementary School student Victoria Whitmire presented a
small live oak tree to Eric Draper of the Audubon Society.
The tree is to be planted in the West Bay Preservation Area,
41,000 acres of watershed and natural habitat surround-
ing West Bay, within which Audubon plans to establish a
nature center. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


At a Nov. 1 special meet-
ing, the Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC) District
Board of Trustees unani-
mously approved re-em-
ploying Dr. Bob Richburg
to serve as college president
through June 2011.

The trustees acted on a
recommendation from board
chairman Jody Henderson,
which cited Richburg's out-
standing service for the past
20 years and his desire to
return to OWC.
In hiring Richburg for a
four-year term, trustees ap-
proved the same contract
that Richburg has had with
the board since 1987, modi-
fied for a three-percent sal-
ary increase.
Richburg thanked the
board for their confidence
in his leadership, noting,
"There is so much more we


need to do, such as the new
community services com-
plex, South Walton county
projects, implementing the
new master-plan for the col-
lege's Crestview center, and
starting the new bachelor's
programs in teacher educa-
tion to serve our students
and the community."
Richburg is the third-
longest serving president in
the state's community col-
lege system. He has served
at OWC since August 1987
and was previously presi-
dent at Chipola Junior Col-
lege. Among the 28 pub-
lic community. colleges in
Florida, presidential sala-
ries range from $95,500 to
$323,736 and are generally
tied to longevity of service
and the size of the college.
Richburg's new base salary
is $221,450.
Among Richburg's ac-


complishments at OWC in-
clude:
Transformation'of OWC
from a junior college to
an educational institution
which offers accredited
bachelor's degrees;

More than $100 million
in capital improvements
such as construction of the
Fort Walton Beach Campus,
major new facilities at the
Niceville campus including
the fine and? performing arts
complex,- science building
and learning resources cen-
ter;
Establishing an intercol-
legiate athletics program
that has garnered numerous
state and regional champi-
onships, including a nation-
al championship;
Establishing health in-
structional programs such
as nursing, dental assisting,


surgical technology, radiog-
raphy, EMT and Paramed-
ic;
Partnerships with local
government, such as the
new community services
complex being designed for
the Niceville campus which
will house the Okaloosa
County .Emergency Opera-
tions Center; and
Numerous other endeav-
ors designed to serve OWC's
more than 15,000 students
annually and the commu-
nity.

The next scheduled regu-
lar Board of Trustees meet-
ing is Nov. 27 at 6:30 p.m.
in the building K commu-
nity gallery on the Niceville
campus. The
District Board of Trustees
is the governing board of
OWC. Trustees are appoint-
ed by the Florida governor.

play and the large cast de-
livers; firing accurately on
most all cylinders from the
smallest role to the biggest.
The pivotal role of Col. Na-
than R.- Jessup, played by
Mark Murphy, is a case in
point. Murphy lacks physi-
cal menace and great pow-
ers of projection, yet he
was believable as a Marine
whose star is on the rise and
who commands a group of
men 70 yards from a fence
line with guns aimed and
ready to shoot. What Mur-
phy lacks in stature, he
more than made up for with
verbal inflection, ramrod


straight posture, and the
bravado of a career soldier.
The cast is large and each
player was more than cred-
ible, but the production be-
longs to Lambeth. It is diffi-
cult to take your eyes off him
as he solves the riddle of the
Marines who always obey
orders and their superiors
who swear they not only did
not order a Code Red on the
dead Marine, but insisted he
not be touched at all. These
roles, played by Michael
Brown and Ryan Carpenter,
are challenging and critical
as the impetus to get Kaffee
thinking of more than a plea


bargain. Carpenter, "in his
first try as an actor," was up
to the task playing Downey,
a not-so-bright but terribly
committed Marine, who al-
ways does as he is told and
always looks to Brown, as
Dawson, to lead him. Both
were very good in small but
crucial characters.
Under the taut direction
of Don Goodrum, the large
cast more than exceeds ex-
pectation for community
theatre performance. Un-
told numbers of hours of re-
hearsal was evident in the
delivery of multiple lines of
dialog. Clever lighting al-


lows one stage to serve as
the set for several venues
via expert lighting design by
Jerry Medders and lighting
operator Nancy Kruzek.

This is a fine example
of community theater. "A
Few Good Men" will be pre-
sented Nov. 9 and 10 at 7:30
p.m. and at 2 p.m. on Nov.
11 at the Fort Walton Beach
Civic Center. Tickets may
be purchased at the door or
by calling 243-1101 for res-
ervations. Additional ticket

Movie Review


"American Gangster"

- Uneasy streets


By BRUCE COLLIER
A black man writes his
own version of the Ameri-
can Dream, transforming
his life and the life of his
family and neighbors in
1960s-70s Harlem. Oscar
laureates Denzel Washing-
ton and Russell Crowe star
as perfectionists on opposite
sides of the law in likewise
Oscar-toting Ridley Scott's
"American Gangster." The
film gets further Academy
muscle from Cuba Gooding
Jr., who got his gold statu-
ette for "Jerry McGuire" in
1996, then spent the next
decade making eerily bad
role choices. Remember
"Snow' Dogs?" Bet Cuba
wishes you didn't....
Washington dominates
the film as Frank Lucas.
Lucas is quiet, courteous,
and methodical, a textbook
example of a company man.
After serving for years as
aide to legendary Harlem
crime kingpin Ellsworth
"Bumpy" Johnson, Lucas
finds himself out of work
when Johnson dies. See-
ing his neighborhood up for
grabs by Italian and His-
panic gangs, Lucas hits on a
brilliantly simple plan. His
scheme takes advantage of
America's increasing ap-
petite for narcotics and its
involvement in the Vietnam
War.
Using a connection in the
American military who's
stationed in Thailand, Lu-
cas takes a flight overseas
to visit the upcountry poppy
fields. His plan is to pur-
chase the purest heroin di-
rect from the grower/proces-
sor, ship it in compressed
blocks using military flights,
and take it into the United
States through New York.
Once there, he packages it
uncut as "Blue Magic," sell-
ing it for a reasonable price
all over the city, in distinc-
tive blue paper packets.
Lucas pays top dollar all
along the line for product,
protection, and distribution
- and his heroin becomes the
Beluga caviar of junkies all
over town. "So pure you can
smoke it," marvels one ex-
pert, adding that "the white
kids" prefer that to shooting
up.
Lucas prospers, buying a
house upstate and bringing
his mother and brothers up
from his native South Caro-
lina to enjoy the fruits of his
success. When the Italian
mob gets interested, Lucas
brokers a deal with them.
He even gets all the neces-
sary cops paid off. Best of all,
Lucas' quiet ways and unob-
trusive lifestyle keep him
well under the radar, even
with a federally-sponsored
narcotics crackdown loom-
ing. Enter Richie Roberts
(Russell Crowe), a narcotics
cop with an irritating vice,
,incorruptibility. Roberts has
been put in charge of a task
force charged with busting
the biggest dealers with the
most product. Though his


honesty makes him a pa-
riah among his corrupt col-
leagues, he gathers a squad
of fellow untouchables and
starts digging.
Roberts tries to wrap
his mind around the laby-
rinthine structure of New
York's narcotics world. He
and his fellow detectives
post photos on a wall, draw-
ing and erasing connections
between faces and names.
Frank Lucas isn't even a
name to Roberts, until by
chance he observes Lucas at
the Muhammad Ali-Joe Fra-
zier boxing match, seated in
front of a notorious Mafia
chieftain. Who is this black
guy, thinks Roberts, that
he gets better seats than
a white mob boss? Lucas
gets his place on .the board,
gradually moving to center
stage. Roberts encounters
a strange sort of reverse
prejudice when he tries to
sell the idea of Lucas as the
lord of Harlem's drug scene.
No black man could possibly
have cornered the market on
narcotics, says one federal
prosecutor, even the Mafia
couldn't do that.
Meantime, Lucas sees his
family drawn into the drug
business, helplessly watch-
ing his brothers fall prey to
the allure of ready drugs,
women, and fast living.
When another dealer, the
flamboyant .Nicky Barnes
(Cuba Gooding Jr.) starts
selling adulterated heroin
as Blue Magic, junkies start
dying. Lucas takes offense,
not at the deaths, but at the
tarnishing of his product's
image. "It's a brand name,"
he tells Barnes, "just like
Pepsi." This is based on a
true story, so you can read
how it turns out, or just
watch the movie.
"American Gangster" is
less violent overall than,
say, "The Departed" or any
of the "Godfather" films.
Both Washington and Crowe
are capable of screen fire-
works, as witnessed by their
Oscar turns in "Training
Day" and "Gladiator." Here,
they play it down, making
their characters believable
as people first, and as bad
guy and cop second. Aside
from Gooding and Ruby Dee
as Lucas' mother, most of
the supporting actors are
relatively unknown, cast for
their real-life look rather
than glamour. Scott does
an excellent job recreating
the look of New York in the
near-bankrupt, rust-and-
crime-ridden 1970s.
You may be disappointed
to see that Crowe and Wash-
ington get relatively little
screen time together. The
way the story unfolds, it's
unavoidable. Their scenes
are low-key, almost relaxed.
The film has one of most ar-
resting openings. I've ever
seen, and, an ending that
says it all without a word of
dialogue, just music. How's
that, you ask? Gotta buy a
ticket.


More than a few good men in


Stage Crafters production


By LEAH STRATMANN

It takes a lot of courage
and optimism to mount a
production of a well-known
hit play and even bigger hit
movie such as "A Few Good
Men" with amateur actors,
but the Stage Crafters play-
ers pulled off a difficult as-
signment with aplomb and
only a few verbal bobbles.
The play, written with
great precision by Aaron
Sorkin of "West Wing" fame,
concerns the machinations
of a legal team of attor-
neys from the Navy's Judge
Advocate General's Corps
(JAGC) assigned to mount a
defense for a pair of Marines
accused of killing one of the
men in their unit at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba. The men
proclaim their innocence,
stating they were ordered to
perform a "Code Red" on a
colleague, an underperform-
ing Marine with a history of


writing letters complaining
of his treatment at Gitmo.
A Code Red is a term for
unusual disciplinary tech-
niques, frowned upon by
most military leaders, but
tacitly encouraged at Gitmo
as a means of keeping the
men focused on "unit, corps,
God and country," the code
they all adhere to.
For reasons nobody un-
derstands, the case is as-
signed to a young attorney
named Lt. Daniel Kaffee,
a sardonic lawyer with a
passion for plea bargains
and baseball, and a good
track record at both. In his
short tenure in the JAGC
office, Kaffee has yet to see
the inside of a courtroom,
even though he has handled
dozens of cases. The orders
come from the very top and
are a source of consterna-
tion to Cmdr. Jo Ann Gal-
loway, an internal affairs
attorney who believes the


accused pair to be innocent
of the crime.
As Kaffee, Pensacola
Little Theatre import Jer-
emy Lambeth seemed to be
channeling Tom Cruise. In
voice, body movements and
passion, he inhabited his
role with absolute sincerity.
Real life Naval Academy
graduate and Pensacola
Naval Air Station flight of-
ficer trainee Lauren Keefe is
able, but also a bit shrill, as
Galloway; however her char-
acter is a nitpicker who over
thinks everything and is not
especially endearing. The
third member of the team
is John Guzalak as Lt. Sam
Weinberg, who managed
just the right amounts of le-
gal acuity and wisecracking
tension- breakers playing
second legal chair backing
up the neophyte Kaffee.
This is a dialogue-driven
