gratitude for the support

Eidsaune said that many
details in connection with
the bypass remain to be

School district debuts Dash-


Board information system


Walton County School
District announced the
first phase of its student
information system, Dash-
Board. On Oct. 18, the su-
perintendent, principals,
district leaders and visitors
from the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium
(PAEC) applauded as tech-
nology leaders Greg Alford
and Dewayne Geoghagan
introduced the first phase
of DashBoard, a customized
student information com-
puter program.
"I have been waiting on
a program like this for 15
years," said Supt. Carlene
Anderson. "This program
provides data for prescrip-
tive instruction to truly
meet student needs."
According to Greg Alford
who is employed by PAEC
but serves at the Walton
County School District to
assist the technology de-
partment in developing the
comprehensive program,
"DashBoard is a comprehen-
sive district/school/grade/
class/student level informa-
tion delivery platform that
is based upon the extensive
database of information
that each district is required
to maintain for state report-
ing."
"This program will em-
power our teachers, prin-
cipals and schools with the
necessary information to
identify individual student
needs and then provide the
instruction that particular
student needs," said Ander-
son. "If three people were di-
agnosed with three different
illnesses such as a broken

wouldn't treat them all with
an aspirin would we? No, we
would give them the treat-
ment they need. DashBoard
will enable us to better iden-
tify the academic needs of
each student and deliver the
correct academic prescrip-.
tion and treatment to help
them."

PERSONAL COMMENTS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Editor's comment


Time to


say thanks
By RON KELLEY
As we prepare for Thanksgiving, many people are find-
ing time to pause a moment to meditate on all the things
for which they have to be thankful. For some of us, this
only happens once or twice a year. We would all be happier
if we would stop and count our blessings more often.
If asked, many of us would list the big things in our life
- our faith, family, friends, good health and financial suc-
cess. However, sometimes we should be thankful for the
small things, too.
For instance, I am thankful that the Walton County
Commission and FDOT have installed a stoplight at a dan-
gerous intersection in DeFuniak Springs. I'm also thank-
ful that the county is about to resurface Bruce Avenue,
which is heavily-used by city residents to reach several
neighborhoods, Walton Middle School and Eucheeanna Val-
ley. Thank you, commissioners, for these much-needed im-
provements.
I am thankful for Walton Middle School's Veteran's Day
program. It never fails to stir me and this year was no
exception. The program was excellent, as always, the speak-
ers inspiring and entertaining, the middle school band was
as good as any high school band' I've heard in this county
and all the singing was lovely. Most impressive was how
the students, all crowded together into a single building,
sat quietly and respectfully as the speakers talked: I over-
heard several visitors talking afterward about the students'
good behavior and how unlikely it was that area high school
students would behave as well.
Thus, I am thankful for a school that still cares so pas-
sionately about honoring the men and women of our armed
forces. I am thankful for a community that fervently sup-
ports and participates in such programs and I am espe-
cially thankful to have so many fine young people living in
my hometown.
I am thankful for all of the military service organiza-
tions and ladies auxiliaries and for the lonely veteran that
stands quietly before the grave of a fallen comrade and
simply remembers.
I am thankful that Walton County communities are
quick to come to the aid of those in need, quick to give of
their time, their energy and, often, their hard-earned money
to help someone less fortunate.
I am thankful for all of the civ ic organizations that strive
so hard to help their communities, and for the dedicated
men and women who make up our law-enforcement de-
partments, fire and rescue units, 9-1-1 dispatchers, road
crews, sanitation crews, mail carriers and all the unsung
heroes out there that we, too often, take for granted.
Most of all, I am thankful for this place I call home. In
all my travels, far and wide, no matter how nice, no matter
how lovely, it is always with a sweet yearning that I finally
turn my eyes toward home. Thank you all, each and every
one, for making this the greatest place on earth and me,
the luckiest man here.


"A thankful heart is not only
the greatest virtue, but the
parent of all the other virtues."

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:,
I have been reading with great disdain all the diatribe of
saving the sharks, save the whales, the seals the snail darter,
etc. All of these conservationists want this animals saved from
extinction. I agree to a point, we should not purposefully ex-
punge animals for greed of money or just shear pleasure. We
don't hear them cry foul over chickens, pigs, beef or the such.
Animals were put here for us to have as food.
My biggest complaint is where are all of these so-called ac-
tivists when so-called doctors are murdering babies by the mil-
lions. Babies are human flesh, and are killed for money or
profit. Society is absolutely sick when they cry out for ani-
mals, but fail to address the most precious commodity, which
is our children.
I'm disgusted when articles show up in this and other pa-
pers that condemn the taking of and animal and will not even
mention outright murder of children. The most dangerous place
to live is a woman's womb. Wake up, America, and get your
priorities right.

Editor,
Concerning the November 8, 2007 article;,Allegations made
against COA director," Jean Harvey is a former coordinator
with the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program and is not a
representative of the program in any way.
Any opinions, allegations, thoughts, etc. are her own and do
not reflect those of any RSVP program staff member, its spon-
soring agency, or board members.
Respectfully,

Editor:
I am currently stationed with the US Army 1ID Combat
Aviation Brigade in Iraq (COB Speicher). I never miss a De-
Funiak Herald paper, especially since it's my hometown (Class
of 91). My mother mails them to me in care packages.
I am normally just a laid back reader but lately I have
been itching to write you and your readers. I have got to com-
ment on the "America, The Impossible" article from the No-
vember 1 paper. Forgive the date gap, but just mailing a paper
would get expensive, so my folks wait till they have a full pack-
age to send.
I agree with the Assistant Editor on his view of the objec-
tions and complaints. I will also note that if a group of our
future leaders have put a lot of effort into a play that they
believed in they should be able to perform! Give those kids
the chance to feel the accomplishment of a well-planned, and
well-executed play. For those that disagree with the play, too
easy don't go!
As far as the rest of the community, I would have to say this
I can't wait to retire in five to six years. I long to be a part of
a small community that is growing and has a flourishing youth.
Be proud of who you are and don't forget where you came from
I tell my super troops that all the time.
I miss my family and I miss the "Southern Hospitality" at-
titude. Uncle Sam has been good to me, and I ask that the
public never forget the sacrifices that have been made abroad.
Good men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice for
their country. Regardless of each soldier's belief of this mis-
sion we have a duty to perform. We are performing it to the
best of our ability.
Last but not least, I would like to say "thank you" and "I love
you" to my parents, Bill and Marnita Eades, and my in-laws,
Beatrice and Frog Bishop. Take care, and don't worry about
me. See you in the fall of 2008.

Editor:
I just want to take this time to say a special thank-you to
all of the wonderful businesses that joined us on Baldwin
Avenue for our 16th annual Halloween Happening. Without
the enthusiastic help of our merchants, the event would not
be possible, and I thank each of you from the bottom of my
heart. The DBPA board is also owed special thanks for go-
ing.above and beyond the call of duty...again!
In addition to all of our great business partners who have
already been listed here in these pages, I want to say a spe-
cial thank-you to three business that made significant con-
tributions to this annual event. First, let me say thanks to
Bruce Rhodes of Rhodes Jewelers and Robert Nelson of I-
Fix-Computers. Both of these gentlemen worked to put out
safety cones to block Baldwin Avenue from automobile traf-
fic. This helped make our event safe and worry-free for kids
and their parents. They also allowed us to use their corner
parking lot for our costume contest.
This brings me to the third business that deserves our
thanks The Book Store. Dave and Liz Sinclair gave out
something more valuable than candy to some lucky young-
sters. They gave away a book of that child's choice to four
happy children, who can enjoy a good book long after the
candy is gone.
Such thoughtful dedication by members of our business
and professional community is one of the reasons I'p so
proud to call DeFuniak Springs and Walton County my home.

Editor:
I think it is a sad day in Walton County. When the city of
DeFuniak Springs' Veteran's Day activities went on, we (Sons
of Amvets and AmVets Ladies Auxiliary) were told by the
VFW Quartermaster to remove our wreaths and flags hon-
oring our veterans, although we were there early to set up
to support our vets and those coming back.
We have had fathers, sons, uncles and sisters that served
in the military and fought for the great United States, but
we were told this was "for vets only."
Thank you, but are we not also veterans in the sense of
the word? We've seen our family members go off, and we've
prayed just as hard, as they went through the training, the
ups and downs of trying times, and the wars.
I think this was very rude and uncalled-for. I know the
crowd that was out there wondered what was going on, but
if we, as Sons of AmVets and the Ladies Auxiliary, cannot
show our support, what's wrong with our city?
We removed our flags and wreaths and left. Thank you
for such a wonderful un-welcoming feeling.
Vicki McKinney
President
AmVets Ladies Auxiliary

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007


SGT. TIMOTHY
PADGETT'S mother, Glen-
da Penton,above photo,
holds the plaque honoring
her son, while surrounded-
by local police and firefight-
ers, city and county officials.


THIS PLAQUE honors
Sgt. Padgett's supreme sac-
rifice in the service of his
country.











Sgt. Padgett honored in

memorial plaque ceremony


By ALICIA LEONARD
City leaders, family and
friends gathered Nov. 9,2007
at the DeFuniak Spring Fire
Department to honor Sgt.
Timothy P. Padgett with
a first responder plaque in
memorial for his service 'in
his community and for his
country. Padgett was born in
Geneva, Al., but was raised
in DeFuniak Springs, Fl.
He graduated.in 1997 from
Walton High School and
was a former South Walton
Fire District firefighter and
paramedic.
Padgett, 23, was serving
as a Green Beret with the
1st Battalion, '7th Special
Forces Group, based in Fort,
Bragg, N.C., when .-he was
killed in action May 8, 2007
during an exchange with en-
emy fighters who attacked a
combat patrol he was sup-
porting near Helmand Prov-
ince, Afghanistan.
Fire Chief Brian Coley
began the ceremony by ex-
pressing that this dedica-
tion was a solemn ceremony
but a positive ceremony as
well. "Tim gave his life doing
what he wanted to do. He
was defending his country
and looking out for his fel-
low man and that was what
he wanted, so we may take
to some feeble degree, com-
fort that he died doing what
he loved. We would rather
have him back, though, than
have his name on a plaque."
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council drafted a pro-
cedure to honor these men
and women who. serve as
first-responders during, an
emergency and Timothy
Padgett's name is the first,


to be placed on the plaque.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
preformed the dedication
of the plaque and spoke to
the audience, "We are here
today to remember the her-
oism and vigilance of those
who have given their lives
in heroic circumstance. The
gift of their sacrifice will
always be honored and re-
membered. We are grateful
to be able to honor Tim and
his sacrifice today.". ..
(had 'Nelson and ~John
Lawson, firefighters for De-
funiak Springs and Walton
County and life-long friends
of Padgett spoke, on his
behalf. "Tim was always a
good man. He knew what he
was doing and loved what
he was doing. I could stand
up here all day telling you
good things about Tim. He
pretty much dedicated his
life to helping people. If he
was helping, then he was
happy. I miss him," Nelson
said. Lawson continued
the thoughts, "It's been re-
ally hard without Chad. We
all really miss him. If I could
say one thing about Tim it
would be that he was a real
man. He gave 110 percent
to everything he tried. We
were e-mailing each other
while he was in Afghani-
stan. His team has returned
safely back to Ft. Bragg and
they really miss him too. It's
gonna be a rough holiday
season. If Tim can see what
we are doing here, though,
he would think it's pretty
neat," Lawson said, choking
back his tears.
Coley finished up the
ceremony by remembering
Padgett, "Glory, pride and


heroism are heady words
with serious meaning. They
are seldom spoken lightly.
I am a firefighter and have
been for a long time. The
actions I consider to be he-
roic overshadow my piti--
ful actions. I am thankful
for Tim and other men and
women like Tim who pro-
tect our freedom. When we
talk about honor, glory and
pride, we are talking about
Tim. I "consider Tim Padgett
to bea hieifo." '

Neighbors gather for


a cleaner community


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007


By Al i 'l/.t I i .NMRD
S.it' u.Wi morning's
pleasant weather provided
a i,''r ti environment for
volunteers to :!.Mw,.tr with
a common u,l. the beauti-
fication of their neighbor-
hood. The group gathered
at Platt's Appliance store
with their sights set to clean
up the area -lont Peacock
Street, the place many call
home.
Organizer Catherine
King hopes that the cleanup
on their street is just the be-
ginning. "I'd like to come out
here every three months,
with a group like today and
keep it up. It won't take
much to maintain once we


clean it up good the first
time." King is also hoping
for the news of the effort to
spread. "It would be nice if
other people see what we're
doing and follow suit. That
would be real nice, just to
have it spread from here and
move outward, to make it
better, one road at a time."
Brownie Troop 384, with
parents in tow, arrived first.
Troop leader and mom San-
dy DePriest shared the in-
spiration behind the clean-
up brigade, "I talked with
Mrs. King and she said it
was a great idea to involve
the troop with a community
effort. So I thought I would
ask the girls if they wanted


to participate, and they did,
and here we are."
Nancy Adams, another
neighbor participating in
the cleanup drive, agrees.
Adams is a transplant from
Pennsylvania. Adams loves
the area, but doesn't like
the beer bottles and plastic
plates that litter the sides of
the street. "This is a beauti-
ful area, but litter makes it
not so nice. I think this is a
great effort by our friends in
the community to keep our
community beautiful."
And with that, the group
was off, plastic bags in hand
and cleaning on their minds,
one road at a time.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007


INFECTION FROM FRONT


support commander for the
Walton County Department
of Corrections, said the Wal-
ton County Jail takes the
prevention of any diseases
seriously. "We screen every
inmate. Each inmate is giv-
en a physical after 14 days.
If there is a need, they will
see a physician before the
14 days," said Price.
There are usually a cou-
ple cases of MRSA at the
jail each month, Price said,
but none currently. "The
(inmates) are immediately
isolated, and we treat them
and get them on whatever
antibiotics are needed," he
said. "We've dealt with this
for years and have always
tried to stay on top of it."
Walton County schools
are stepping up preventive
measures, as nurses teach
thorough hand-washing
techniques to students. "It's


the best way not to get infec-
tions, diseases, or the flu,"
said Arnold.
"It's in the news so much,
people are getting scared.
But you just need to be dili-
gent," said Arnold. Hospi-
tals: and other health care
facilities are boosting their
employee hygiene train-
ing, too. 'You never used to
see the hand wipes and the
gloves when you came in a
hospital room. That's part of
the' training they're trying
to do."
Arnold said hospitals are
not required to report MSRA
cases to the DOH and she
was unable to provide any
figures or information about
specific cases in Walton
County.
Sharon Meyers, infection
control practitioner with
Sacred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast, said the


Weatherization program set


The purpose of this
program is to weather-
ize homes in order to stop
air infiltration. The work
includes caulking, thresh-
olds, weather-stripping of
doors and windows, attic
insulation and ventilation,
lo-flo shower heads, insula-
tion of waterlines, insula-
tion of electric hot water
heaters, replacement of air
conditioner filters, faucet
aerators; smoke detectors,
carbon monoxide testers,
(only installed if there is an
existing combustible appli-
ance present in the home)
window and door (exterior
doors) replacements and
repair,, repair of exterior
walls, ceilings and floors,
and repair or replacement
of heating and cooling units
(the existing system must
be energy inefficient, inop-
erable, not repairable at a
reasonable cost or unsafe).

NOTICE OF THE AVAILABILITY OF AN
ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

The USDA Rural Utilities Service has received an application for financial assistance from Mossy
Head Water Works, Inc. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Utilities
Service has prepared an Environmental Assessment that evaluated the potential environmental
effects and consequences of the proposed project. This notice announces the availability of the
Environmental Assessment for public review and comment.

The proposed project will consist of the construction of a new 200,000 gallon elevated storage

This program provides ser-
vices for Holmes, Washing-
ton and Walton' County.


exact number of cases at her
facility is difficult to deter-
mine. "We probably see an
average of one or two cases
come through our emergen-
cy room daily. But North-
west Florida has one of the
highest rates of MRSA in
the state."
Meyers said the majority
of these cases are communi-
ty-acquired, most often the
result of a spider or insect
bite that has become infect-
ed.
"It's really important to
stress hand hygiene before
and after you eat, handle
pets, or use the restroom,"
Meyers added.
A recent article in the
Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA)
stated that 85 percent of
MRSA infections occur in'
individuals who have had
recent contact with health
care facilities. The Centers
for Disease Control and Pre-
vention (CDC) reported that
staphylococcal infections
such as MRSA occur most
frequently in crowded living
and working spaces such as
fishing boats and sports in
which athletes share equip-
ment and frequent physical
contact.
The JAMA article also de-
termined the rate for 'severe
infections due to MRSA to


be lowest among school-age
children when compared to
adults and senior citizens.
The MRSA rate ranged
from 1.4 cases per 100,000
for ages 5-17, compared to
127.7 cases per 100,000 in
adults age 65 and older. Ac-
cording to, Eggert, school
cases are rare and most of-
ten occur among members of
sports teams.
The Florida DOH high-
lighted some of the CDC's
recommended precautions.
In addition to hand hygiene,
they recommend keeping.
cuts and scrapes clean and
bandaged, avoiding contact
with others' wounds or ban-
dages, and avoiding sharing
items like towels and shav-
ing razors.
The Florida DOH's Bu-
reau of Epidemiology stat-
ed that staph infections
are most often associated
with skin, but may also in-
clude "more serious and life
threatening infections."
Symptoms of staph infec-
tion including, but not lim-
ited to MRSA most com-
monly include red, swollen,
painful, and/or pus-filled
boils. According to the Bu-
reau of Epidemiology, 25 to
30 percent of the population
carry some strain of staph,
with only 1 percent of those
afflicted with MRSA.

WALTON COUNTY

SHERIFF'S REPORT


































A 21-GUN SALUTE was made in honor of American veterans by the Walton She
Department Honor Guard.


REMEMBERING


Veterans. Quartermaster,
Thomas 'Brooks, Post 4437,
presented the wreath for the
Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Guest speaker and four-
term Congressman Jeff
Miller spoke to the audi-
ence, "Each year on the 11th
day of November, people
gather in places just like
this to reflect on the service
of our nation's veterans and
all that they have given to
our country. We all know,
that veterans have selflessly
stood in harm's way to pro-
tect our most fundamental
freedoms of life, .liberty and
the pursuit of happiness.
America is proud of you.
Dwight D Eisenhower once
said, on the day he began his
military career, 'the feeling
came over me that the ex-
pression "the -United States
'of America" would no longer
mean the same thing that it
had before. From here on it
would be the nation I would
be serving and not myself.'
"Time after time across
the world, our military has
proven that democracy will
overcome tyranny. Free- na-'
tions and nations freed by
American troops are grate-
ful for the soldiers who have
come to their aid. There are
currently more than 25 mil-
lion living American veter-
ans who have placed their
lives on the line to preserve
our freedom. From the sol-
diers who braved the freez-
ing temperature in Valley
Forge, to the malaria-ridden
jungle of Southeast Asia, to
the unforgiving cliffs of Nor-
mandy, to the steady resolve
we have recently seen in Af-
ghanistan and Iraq, through
each of these challenges
our service members have
served selflessly. Go to any
community in this country,
just like DeFuniak Springs,
and you will find veterans in
positions of service and lead-'
ership. To paraphrase Pres-
ident Ronald Reagan, some
people spend an entire life-
time wondering if they have
made a difference. Veterans


don't have that problem."
Miller continued, "The
bottom line is this, veterans
are our heros and our re-
sponsibility. America must
and will keep its word to
those men and women who
have given us so much. Vet-
erans have been promised
good health care. When they
are sick and disabled, they
must be treated with fair-
n. ess and with respect.
"As a member of the
House Veterans Affair Com-
mittee, it is my honor to work
to secure better benefits and
services for the veterans of
our nation, both young and
old. We have worked hard to
provide services and equally
important is where those
service are located. Right
here in Northwest Florida,
people have been driving
for hours to receive even
the most basic of services.
I am happy to report that
veterans in this area no lon-
ger have to do that. In May
2008, the outpatient clinic
at Eglin Air Force Base is
scheduled to open its doors
providirig-needed- care to,
over 50,000 veterans in our
area.
"I'm also happy to report
that great progress is be-
ing made in assisting our
returning service members
in their transition back to
civilian life, including ar-
eas such as education and
the workforce. An increased
cooperation between the
Department of Defense and
the Department of'Veteran
Affairs will help insure that
veterans will not only re-
ceive appropriate care and
]benefits, but will also be
helped with educations and
employment opportunities
available to them. I want to
thank the city of DeFuniak
Spring, the Walton County
Chamber of Commerce and
the Military Affairs Commit-
tee and all of our veterans
group for holding this cer-
emony. It's important that
we come together this day,
nationally, to say thank-you


PRO G R A S


and show our veterans
service people, thank
for your service. May'
bless you, our veterans
active-duty service m
bers."
After Miller's spe
a flag folding demon
tion was provided by \
AFJROTC. Walton Co
Tax Collector Rhonda S
per sang, "God Bless
U.S.A.," the Walton Co
Sheriffs Department H
Guard preformed a 21
salute in honor of the
erans, and Josh Gill pl
"Taps," followed by K
McCurdy, Panama City
lice Department, perf
ing "Amazing Grace" o01
bagpipes. Reverend Ty
Broadus gave the clo
prayer and Col. Fullenk
thanked everyone for f
participation and a
dance.


ARE WE TOO BUSY

TO REMEMBER?

When driving into Freeport, I passed by Hammock Bay,
American flags were waving as if they were to say:

Remember the veteran, those of old and new.
Remember the patriot that fought for me and you.

I felt a swelling in my breast, a blur about my eyes, ,
Reflections of my father dear, and all that had to die.

There is a gift no greater, for life is what they gave,
We tend to take for granted, all the freedoms they have
saved.

Men and women fight for us, but here you wouldn't know
it
For in the town of Freeport, not one business did show it.

I looked for the Stars and Stripes, finding only two.
The center of town and.City Hall flew our red, white and
blue.
riff's l ,
Not but one Freeport business took time to show respect.
What a shameful indication of how soon we do forget.

Veteran men and women live among our mist.
For us, they sacrificed their pursuit to happiness.

Integrity, loyalty, and honor are lost pretty much,
and Business is as usual, and few have time for such.

TPO holds bicycle-pedestrian charrette


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Okaloosa-Waltoh
Transportation Planning
Organization (TPO) recent-
ly sponsored a two-day char-
rette designed to address,
bicycle-pedestrian safety
and the ways communities
are designed to meet these
needs., The charrette was
held at the Freeport Com-
munity Center in Freeport.
Guest speaker for the No-
vember 5 and 6 event was
Dan Burden of Walkable
Communities Inc. Burden is
a nationally-recognized au-
thority on bicycle-pedestrian
programs and brings with
him over 25 years of experi-
ence in developing, promot-
ing and evaluating alteria-
tive transportation facilities,
traffic-calming practices and
sustainable communit3yde-
sign. He served for 16 years .
as Florida Department of
Transportation State, ~Bicy-
cle and Pedestrian Coordi-
nator. Burden contends that
communities designed with
pedestrians in mind are the
wave of the future for many
reasons.
"This is the first genera-
tion to be born in America
that will not live as long as
their parents," Burden said.


"Children today are not get-
ting the physical activity
that is necessary for an ex-
tended lifetime."
According to Burden,
one of the reasons behind
this lack of activity is poor
planning when building
new communities. He noted
that elevated depression
and suicide rates among
today's youth can also be
attributed to inactivity. He


said another good reason to
plan communities around
the pedestrian is the rising
costs of fuel and the effects
of burning fossil fuels on the
planet.
"Being auto-dependent is
not friendly to the planet,"
said Burden. "No state in
America will feel the effects
of global warming more than
Florida."
Burden did have some


good news for the area. He
said he believes the commu-
nities of Seaside and Wa-
tercolor ,are good examples
of pedestrian-friendly plan-
ning.
"It is very important to
build for the quality of life
rather than the volume of
traffic," he said. "Towns that
build in a sense of place will
drive .the economy in the
United States."

Understanding your indi-
vidual rights as a citizen of
the U.S. under the U.S. Con-
stitution cannot be taught
soon enough and the Justice
Teaching Program, an ini-
tiative of Florida Supreme
Court Chief Justice R. Fred

Lewis, aims to do just that.
Friday Nov. 2, eighth
grade American History
students at Freeport Middle
School enjoyed the opportu-
nity of learning about their
constitutional rights from
two local legal profession-
als.
Circuit Court Judge How-
aid Laporte and attorney/
Walton Co. School Board
Member Mark Davis became
Freeport Middle School
teachers for the morning,
and discussed individual
rights as U.S. citizens with
students, which included
frank discussions of which
rights students considered
important and which rights
students thought they could
live without.
Groups of students had
to come up with reasons to
keep or discard certain con-
stitutional rights and were
amazed how each right com-
bines with and is interde-
pendent upon other rights.
The Justice Teaching
website explains, "State and
national surveys frequently
suggest that Americans in
general, know little about
the operation of the Ameri-
can justice system, and they
do not understand the basic
principles underlying our
constitutional institutions
and structures.
The ultimate goal of this

program is to pair a legal
professional with every
elementary, middle, and
high school in the state of
Florida, which will benefit
students by promoting an
understanding of Florida's
justice system' and our laws,
develop critical thinking
abilities and problem solv-
ing skills, and demonstrate
the effective interaction of
our courts within the consti-
tutional structure. "
"We don't want to tell
them (students) what to
think; we want to help them
(learn) to think," Lewis said.
"This is not a group that is
going to try to tell anybody
anything other than our
fundamental democratic
principlesr"

If successful, Lewis said,
"the program will correct
misconceptions, explain
the structure and function
of the courts, .reinforce the
rule of law, and strengthen
public trust and confidence
in the justice system.
"If we do not have the
trust and confidence of our

THE POSTING OF COLORS and service flags by the
WHS JROTC and American Cadet Alliance is serious busi-
ness, as reflected in the faces of these young people.




Warriors honoring warriors


Hope, Assistant Principal Vivian Powell and Ass kson.


By RON KELLEY
Hundreds of students,
staff, townspeople and of-
ficials gathered at Walton
Middle School (WMS) in
DeFuniak Springs to honor
military veterans at the
school's 36th Annual Vet-
eran's Day Program.
Local veterans from all
branches of American, mili-
tary service were on hand
to receive the thanks of a
grateful community. Prin-
cipal Tripp Hope spoke on
the meaning of courage,
on the battlefield and in
our daily lives. The WMS


Drama Club performed a
sketch called The American
Soldier, which featured ex-
cerpts from the inaugural
address of former President
John F. Kennedy.
WMS Band Director
Kamber Harvey directed
the talented young band
through a fine rendition of
"The Liberty March" and
multi-talented vocalist
Rosemary Garner sang "For
Freedom."
The school's chorus, made
up of students and faculty
and led by Cecile Lindegren,
performed "United By The


Red, White And Blue." The
Walton High School JROTC
and the American Cadet Al-
liance performed the post-
ing and retiring of the colors
and the service flags with
precision.
The guest speakers were
from Eglin AFB demolition
and ordinance disposal unit.
The two men, Staff Sgt. Jer-
emy Gibson and Staff Sgt.
Joseph Gorney, were re-
cently returned from Iraq
and talked about how their
unit supports our forces
there and in other parts of
the world. Both men were
dressed for combat and Staff
Sgt. Gorney was wearing the
demolition body-armor, de-
signed to protect the wearer
in the event of a close blast.
The names of every vet-
eran in attendance and
their branch of service was
read aloud and the veteran
men and women received a
standing-ovation from the
students, faculty and visi-
tors.
The program lasted well
over an hour and was fol-
lowed by a reception in the
school's media center.


MADDY JONES, Mary Beth Majors, Alyssa Padgett and Courtney Smith performed the
National Anthem.


THE AUDITORIUM was packed for Walton Middle
School's 36th Annual Veteran's Day Program.


STAFF SERGEANT JOSEPH GORNEY looks like a
Star Wars character or Ming, the Merciless while dressed in
the Eglin Air Force demolition squad's full regalia.


VOCALIST ROSEMARY GARNER performed "For Free-
dom" by Matt Moran.


WMS WARRIORS gave the veteran U.S. warriors a standing-ovation at the end of the program.


STAFF SERGEANT JEREMY GIBSON explained how:
he and the members of his squad go about handling mines
and explosives to protect U.S. soldiers in Iraq and around
the world.

Dear Auntie Em,
I never thought I would
write a letter like this, but
here it goes. The holidays
are fast approaching and I
will have no money for
presents for my family. I'm
young still and don't have
kids, but what about my
family members and friends
who always expect
something? I can't share
this with anyone else,
because the people I would
usually ask for advice expect
a present at Christmas time.
It's not even Thanksgiving
yet, both of my credit cards
are maxed out and I'm
stressed out! Please help.

(Name and address

Dear Humbug,
Oh, the holidays, spent
making out your cards to
show your maximum love.
Well, I say Bah Humbug to
that too!
Now, lets talk a little
about your finances. You
don't say whether the
reason you lack funds
during the holidays is
because you are struggling
to survive on your own, have
had a run of bad luck or you
just incur extra expenses as
an everyday habit.
If you are living outside
of your means, then it is
time to pull back. Not just
for the holidays, but for you,
for your future! Living on

credit is no way to live.
Getting behind is easy, but
it's hard to catch up. So start
searching out ways to live
inside your means. Start
making your coffee at home
and brown-bag the lunch till
the cards are paid off. You'll
be happier and it will be the
best present you could ever
give yourself.
Now if you are living
within your means and still
struggling, there are a few
different ways to approach
the problem. Take a part
time job, if your time allows,
and save a little back for
yourself, while you're at it.
If this is not an option,
then think of creative ways
to give of yourself to your
loved ones. A sister with a
baby might appreciate a
night off with a coupon for
one night's babysitting.
Grandma might like her
house cleaned by a coupon
from the cleaning fairy. Your
only spending limit is your
imagination. And if there
are any family members
who don't like it, well, they
can kiss my mistletoe.
Besides, how many pairs
of socks and Chia pets does
it take to show how you feel
in your heart? Survey
says...none.
Remember, the best gifts
really do come from the
heart and not American
Express. You're in my
thoughts and prayers.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007
Movie Review


"Lions for Lambs" serves food for thought


By BRUCE COLLIER
"Lions for Lambs," di-
rected by and starring -
Robert Redford, is a fairly
short film, tightly shot and
loaded with talk. At the cen-
ter of the story is the at-
tempted rescue of a pair of
wounded U.S. soldiers from
a mountain top in Afghani-
stan. The soldiers, named
Finch and Rodriguez, are
college friends. Redford
plays Stephen Malley, a
California university profes-
sor who taught them politi-
cal science and tried to dis-
suade them from enlisting.
We learn this in the course
of a conversation between
Malley and another student,
a talented but apathetic kid
that Malley is trying to mo-
tivate.
At the same time, we are
privy to another two-person
conversation, this one in
Washington, D.C. Television
journalist Janine Roth
(Meryl Streep) has been
granted a full hour of time
with Sen. Jasper Irving


(Tom Cruise). Irving is a Re-
publican bright star trying
to sell Roth an exclusive on
a new strategic initiative in
the war on terror.
The story of Finch and
Rodriguez, then and now, is
told in flashback and
present-day form, and
serves as the dramatic un-
derpinning of the two office
scenes. Both Malley and Irv-
ing are admittedly "sales-
men." Malley wants his stu-
dent to slough off his ,cyni-
cal pose and take an active
part in life and current af-
fairs. Irving wants to enlist
the media's aid in selling an
increasingly disheartening
but necessary war. Finch
and Rodriguez just want to
get off the mountain before
the approaching Taliban,
forces can get to them. Their
presence in Afghanistan is
the first step in Irving's ini-
tiative of small units, oper-
ating to intercept terrorist
elements crossing through
Iran to get to Iraq.
If you like lots of military


action, special effects, and
memorable taglines, forget
this one. "Lions for Lambs"
is essentially an extended
debate over citizen apathy,
government policy, and the
degeneration of the media
from news providers into
purveyors of pop-entertain-
ment. Characters sit in
chairs for long stretches,
trading observations and ar-
guments, verbally fencing in
a sort of American Shavian-
style. Meantime, Finch and
Rodriguez freeze their tails
off on a godforsaken rock in
the Hindu Kush, while their
comrades rush to send in
protection and rescue forces
- all this in the middle of a
blizzard. It's an effective way
to tell a story, and Redford
works it well.
It also helps to hire good
actors. Sen. Irving is an un-
Tom Cruise role, given his
recent spree of action and sc-
fi flicks. Cruise plays the
G.O.P. whiz kid with as much
of his remaining boyish
charm as he can. Thankfully,


he doesn't caricaturize or give
us the "You know I'm not this
kind of guy" nudge he could
have done. Irving is sincerity
itself, dispensing candor, hu-
mor, and patriotism all at
once. Streep's Roth looks al-
most convinced, or perhaps,
seduced, by it all. Through her
interview with the senator,
Roth conveys a sense of
bemusement, like someone
watching a magic act, enjoy-
ing it but trying to figure it
out at the same time.
Director Redford's general
political and social views are
a matter of public record.
Despite some of the com-
ments I've heard, I did not
find "Lions for Lambs" an un-
balanced, left-leaning film, or
even an anti-war film. Its
strongest criticisms seem di-
rected not just at thoughtless
policy, but also at a non-par-
ticipatory public that de-
mands style, but no substance
from its leaders and its me-
dia. "They bank on your apa-
thy," Malley tells his student.
"They plan strategies around
it." He is speaking of the gov-


ernment, but the assertion
applies to the media as well.
Near the end of the film,
we see a news program
showcasing the latest idiotic
excesses of a self-destructive
pop singer and her rapper
husband, while the hard
news of Irving's military ini-
tiative is relegated to a
black-and-white crawl at the
bottom of the screen. If
you've ever seen the 1963
film "The Ugly American," it
might look familiar.
"Lions for Lambs" has a
low-key, cerebral feel to it.
Camera work is close, almost
claustrophobic, with the em-
phasis on small scenes with
two characters, and plenty of
face-time for the lead actors.
It takes attention, and
maybe a few viewings, to
catch all that's being said.
Whatever your party affilia-
tion, or your opinion of the
war on terror, "Lions for
Lambs" is well worth a look
and a listen. It won't make
you happy, but it should
make you think.

The blessing of


Thanksgiving

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


In starting Psalm 103:1,
David wrote, "Bless the Lord,
O my soul..." Two themes are
given in this Psalm. One is
the privilege of worshiping
God. Read the whole Psalm
and you will see it. The other
is the habit of thankfulness.
Let's dwell on the second of
thi se. *
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 enriches us. ,
Further, the habit of thank-
fulness is a brave and cheer-
ful habit. It has no room for
the weak bitterness which
complains that life is not
worth living. It does not dwell


on personal disappoint-
ments, but enters into the
larger life of God's kingdom.
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 prom-
ise of God is like a seat along
a mountain path, with the
words over it, "Rest and be
thankful." If we are thank-
ful, we are already at rest.
Furthermore, thankful-
ness cures covetousness. An
old man used to say that he
liked to look into the win-
dows of stores at Christmas
time. He was thankful to see
so many things that he could
do without! A person has
gone a long way toward
thankfulness when he can
do that.
Let all that is within us be
thankful, and bless the Lord
for His goodness. Let us
never forget all the benefits
which he has given us. Then
we can also be thankful, for
all the bad times which He
has let come our way. "Bless
the Lord, 0 my soul!"

Thanksgiving celebration

planned at Pleasant Ridge

Baptist Church, Nov. 18


The Pleasant Ridge Bap-
tist Church family of DeFu-
niak Springs will have a
Thanksgiving celebration
Sunday, Nov. 18. The day will
begin with a morning fellow-
ship at 8:45 a.m., followed
with Bible study in small
groups at 9:15 a.m. The
morning worship celebration
will begin at 10 a.m. where,
in addition to preaching by
Pastor James Johnson, the
Southern gospel group, The.
Bibletones Quartet, will lead
in a celebration of worship.
About noon, the entire con-
gregation will join the tradi-
tional annual Thanksgiving
meal everyone will bring a


side-dish or dessert and en-
joy the fellowship and re-
member God's many bless-
ings in the past and look for-
ward to his faithfulness in
the future.
The Bibletones Quartet is
no stranger to this area, of-
ten referred to as the "heart"
of professional Southern
gospel music. They are cel-
ebrating their Golden Anni-
versary in 2007. Though or-
ganized in Lumberton, MS.,
by Ward and Irene Hurt,
upon their retirement, the
group moved to Gulfport,
MS., with Howard Rutland
as manager.


Says Rutland, "I thank
the Lord each day for giving
me the chance to serve Him
through gospel music and
specifically, with the
Bibletones. Witnessing the
many lives that have been
touched and changed in posi-
tive ways because of gospel
music is amazing and most
satisfying." Dr. Johnson and
the family at Pleasant Ridge
Baptist invite all to join this
special celebration giving
thanks to the Lord "for all
His marvelous works."

directions or more informa-
tion at 892-3500.

In what was one of the
bigger massacres in Walton
football history, the Braves
defeated Franklin County
66-0 in their regular season
finale.
The Braves, who faced the
winless Seahawks in a non-
district contest, put up 60
points in the first half and
recorded a pair of safeties on
defense, as well as a pair of
defensive touchdowns to fin-
ish the season with an 8-2
record.
Tarrell Bramlet threw for
208 yards and four touch-

gled with bad snaps from
the center position and five
interceptions, as well as no
threat of a running game.
The Braves held Franklin
County to minus-62 rushing
yards on the night, a num-
ber that is likely a school re-
cord on defense.
Walton had 12 posses-
sions during the game and
faced third down only three

football on offense.
Walton honored 22 play-
ers on Senior Night before

Seahawks end season with win


By CHUCK HINSON
Senior Kenzie Clemmons
had a great evening this
past Friday night as he led
the South Walton Seahawks
to victory in their final sea-
son of the year. Clemmons
really stood out as the most
valuable player after scor-
ing six touchdown against
Sneads and keeping the vic-
tory at home with a 44-38
score.
Dennis Smith added one
touchdown run for the Sea-
hawks, who finished their


season with a 3-7 record.
Unfortunately, they are not
eligible to continue on to the
district play-offs.
The game was tied at
'38-38 in the middle of the
fourth quarter when Clem-
mons scored for his final
time in his South Walton
High School career, six
yards out, with a little more
than four minutes -remain-
ing on the clock. That score
did the trick and the clock
counted down the final min-
utes of the young man's last
high school football victory.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007 PAGE 11-4


Hokies beat injured Noles


By CHUCK HINSON
It is the first time that
Virginia Tech head football
coach Frank Beamer felt the
sensation of victory over the
Seminoles. It was a victory
for the Hokies that came at
a severe physical price for
Florida State.

Starting quarterback
Drew Weatherford sat on


the sidelines with his head
still ringing from a first
quarter pounding, back-up
quarterback Xavier Lee was
out on a two-game suspen-
sion. It came to third-string
quarterback Christian Pon-
der to make his first appear-
ance all year against the No.
11-ranked Virginia Tech
Hokies. Ponder did surprise
both the Hokies and the


Seminoles with his ability to
throw and run and he also'
pulled the 'Noles back from
a 14-point deficit.

But the effort didn't last
long enough as the Virginia
Tech defense and the tal-
ented offense took control.
They forced Ponder to throw
three interceptions and run
up a 40-21 score against the


Seminoles.

The Hokies led the Semi-
noles at the half, 20-6, but
after the third quarter start-
ed, Florida State began to
rally. After Gary Cismesia
nailed a 50-yard field goal,
the 'Noles were only down
by 11 points and they had
come from behind before.
The next Florida State score


came when Virginia Tech
quarterback Tyrod Taylor
committed a rare mistake
and threw an interception
into deep-covered territory.
The interception was caught
by Dekoda Watson and he
ran it back into the Tech
end zone for a 40-yard TD.

DeCody Fagg caught
Ponder's first career touch-


down that lead to the Semi-
noles taking the 21-20 lead,
for the one and only time.
Then two two-conversion at-
tempts both failed for Flor-
ida State. After that final
score, the Tech team took
over and racked up another
20 points in the final quar-
ter of the game. They now
hold the reigns on the ACQ
conference.


Buckeyes join the fallen


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite Urban Meyer be-
ing a great coach at the Uni-
versity of Florida, it was for-
mer coach Ron Zook and the
Fighting Illini that took on
the No. 1 team in the nation
and then knocked them out
of the race for the national
championship game.

It was a history-making


day at the Horseshoe at
Ohio State as the perfect
record-holders stormed the
field. The team pretty much
knew they would only have
to give a little effort before
the big match-up against
Michigan. But Zook and
the boys had other plans.
He promised his team two
years ago after leaving Ohio
State, they would not return


home again from Columbus
a loser. He kept his promise
and they returned winners
with a final score of 28-21.

The latest flip-flop in the
national rankings has LSU
in the No. 1 spot, followed
by Oregon and Oklahoma
in the third-place spot. It
catapulted the Illinois team
into the top 25 rankings at


No. 21.
It was the first time the Il-
linois team had beaten a No.
1 team since 1956, and the
first time it had ever been
done away from their home
field. The win also broke a
20-game winning streak for
Ohio State.

The big news that day was
Juice Williams, who sobbed


like a baby on the field after
their victory. It was his pow-
erful running and throwing
ability that won the day. He
led the Illini with 88 rush-
ing yards on 26 carries.

The entire team rushed
for 260 yards total against
an Ohio State team that
usually does not allow more
than 65 yards on the on the


ground per game.

It has not been since Nov.
14, 1959 that both Ohio
State and Michigan have
lost their respective games
the week prior to playing
*each other for the Big 10-
conference game whicl
usually decides who will
play in the final conference
game.


Bama/Auburn drop out of Top 25


By CHUCK HINSON
It came down to one
thing Alabama's ability to
throw interceptions. That's
what helped the Mississippi
State Bulldogs win the SEC
game, 17-12 at Scott Field
in Starkville. The high point
of the night was an intercep-
tion that was returned by
the Mississippi State Bull-
dogs for 100 yards.
It was the second con-
secutive year that Alabama
fell to MSU, but this year, it
was John Parker Smith's in-
terceptions that gave them
the loss.
On the Alabama defense


side of the game, they held
the MSU Bulldogs to just
98 total yards in the second
half and produced just 30
yards in three drives in the
entire game.
The win knocked No.
21-ranked Alabama out
of the top 25 rankings and
gave Mississippi State their
third SEC win, making
them Bowl eligible for the
first time since 2000.
For the other Alabama
team, Auburn fans were just
as shocked to see their Ti-
gers get destroyed by Geor-
gia. The Bulldogs hit their
home field in Athens in all


black, but after the game,
Auburn would be the one in
mourning.
The No. 19-ranked Au-
burn not only fell out of the
top 25 rankings for the first
time this season, but suf-
fered its worst loss in nearly
three years. Final score,
45-20.

The No. 10-ranked Geor-
gia wore their new black
uniforms for the first time,
ushering in a new era and
a new attitude. Only two
weeks ago, the Bulldogs
were penalized for excessive
celebration when they were


scrapping with Florida,- who
they went on to beat, 42-30.
Mark Richt's Bulldogs
seemed like they were the
only ones on/ the field com-
pared to Tuberville's Ti-
gers. Georgia (8-2) and slid-
ing up to the No. 8 spot in
the BCS and the AP Top 25
polls, are on the top of their
conference roster with a 5-2
record in the SEC.
Tennessee currently
holds the slot for the east
division with a tied 5-2 re-
cord. But, no matter what
the outcome of the SEC, it is
the longest-running rivalry,
now preparing for its 112th


meeting.
Georgia quarterback
Matthew Stafford threw
a 58-yard TD pass to Mo-
hamed Massaqoui and a
13-yard pass to Sean Bailey
for the TD score. Knowshon
Moreno also had an impres-
sive evening, with 100 yards'
rushing for the fourth con-
secutive game, and had scor-
ing runs of .24 and 2 yards,
finishing with 101 yards
and 22 carries.
Auburn (77-4. 4-3) tried
to recover and rally back
within a few points, but the
damage was already done
by quarterback Brandon


Cox's four interceptions. In-
terestingly, he also threw
four interceptions against
the same Georgialeam last
year.
. The defining moment of
the game came after the
Gerogia team had warmed
up on the field and the four
captains met in the center
of the field, all in red. They
entire team changed to the
new "men-in-black" uni-
forms and stormed the field.
It was as though the original
Man In Black, Johnny Cash,
had just stepped out onto a
concert stage in Nashville.
The crowds went wild.

The,


water


wars
By ALICIA LEONARD
The truce between the
feds, Florida and its neigh-
boring states is over ahd
the water wars continue to
flow.
Due to the doubling of the
Atlanta, Georgia-metro area
since 1980, neighboring
states are now wrangling
with the peach state over a
resource no one can go with-
out. That resource is water.'
States in the Southeast alnd
West have been hardest hit
for drinking water.
During the last tW1b6
weeks of October 2067,
Georgia Gov. Sonny Purdiue
declared a state of emer-
gency in north Georgia due
to a "water crisis." The US.
Army Corps of Engineers
has called Purdue's action
over-vigilant and sent a let-
ter to the governor stating,
"they're not going to run out
[of water] any time soon."
Georgia is suffering from a
record drought, but the en-'
gineers believe Atlanta has
enough watei to last "well
into the spring of 2008."
In the meanwhile, Pur-
due's action has caused poli-,
ticians and conservationist
to take a stance over the loss,
of water in local strearm~j
rivers and bays that are nor-
mally fed by the Appalachi-'
cola-Chattahoochee-Flint;
(ACF) reservoir reserve,;
Florida Congressman Allen,
Boyd, according to a press;
release from his office,"isi
spearheading an effort with;
members of the Florida;
Congressional Delegation;
to block Georgia's .request to;
alter the reservoir," a mea-k
sure that Boyd says,"would;
have serious implications!
and adverse affects on Flor-'
ida's Apalachicola River andi,
Apalachicola Bay."
Boyd said, "The state of
Florida should not have to;
bear the full brunt of this'
problem." A Florida del-
egation including Boyd,:
Senators Bill Nelson, Mel-
Martinez and Representa-,
tives Alcee Hastings, Cor-
rine Brown, Kendrick Meek,
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz
and Kathy Astor, have com-
posed a letter to the House
and Senate leaders express-
ing the delegation's strong
opposition to the Georgia
bill that would empower
any governor or Secretary of
the Army to suspend protect,
tions provided by the feder-
al Endangered Species Act
(ESA).
Republican Governors
Bob Riley, of Alabama,"
Charlie Crist, of Florida, and
Sonny Perdue, of Georgia,
met for the first time togeth-.
er with Bush administration,
officials and U.S. Interior
Secretary Dirk Kempthorne
to discuss a solution -over.
the dwindling water supply.

er station in Alabama and

Bay Elementary students



honor local veterans


Bay Elementary School
students honored local vet-
erans with a special celebra-
tion and reception on Thurs-
day, November 08, 2007.
The program was organized
by Kay Huey and featured
guest speaker Garland
"Butch" Phillips Jr., who is
a U.S. Air Force veteran.
Many special guests attend-
ed the event, including Wal-
ton County School Board
Member Darrell Barnhill.
"Mrs. Huey did an out-


standing job organizing this
celebration," said Principal
Shirley Foster. "We are hon-
ored to have Mr. Phillips
with us and teach our chil-
dren the symbolism behind
the folding of the American
flag."
Phillips shared memories
and key events in his mili-
tary career. He also walked
students through the steps
of how to fold the American
flag while explaining the
symbolism behind the pro-


cess.
The program also fea-
tured the National Emblem

Proclamation for Veterans


Day. Fourth-grade students,
led by teacher Lisa Burns,
created and presented a vid-
eo titled "Life in the Armed
Forces," featuring student's
interviews with local veter-
ans.

with the service medley and
presented with a special
honor pin presented by stu-
dents. A 'special reception
followed the celebration in
the school library.


U.S. 98 corridor plan



enters a new stage


By DOTTY NIST
The result of over two
years of work, the North-
west Florida Transporta-
tion Corridor Authority's
(NWFTCA) master plan for
eight Panhandle counties
was approved by authority
members in spring 2007.
The members had origi-
nally been appointed by
Gov. Jeb Bush with the goal
of developing recommenda-
tions to improve mobility on
the U.S. 98 corridor. Each of
the eight counties, Walton,
Okaloosa, Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Bay, Gulf, Franklin
and Wakulla, had one voting
member on the panel, with
an ex-officio member sitting
in for the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation.
Jim Anders, Walton
County's member on the
corridor authority, provided
a progress report on Nov. 7
to attendees at the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce Power of Business
luncheon.
Anders emphasized that
the plan developed by the
panel is conceptual in na-
ture and is to be updated
yearly. It was developed
over a series of 22 public
meetings with public com-
ment provided, he noted.
Ray Reissener of HDR
Engineering, engineering
consultant for the initiative,


commented on the proposed
Eglin bypass, which was re-
cently approved in concept
by Eglin officials. Reissener
was optimistic that the by-
pass could be located in a
manner that would prevent
compromise of the air force
base's mission.
"We would like to enhance
their mission, not jeopardize
it," he said.
In response to a question,
Reissener said there has
been a change of direction
from a previous recommen-
dation by the panel for a toll
road. running through the
Nokuse Plantation private
conservation area in central
Walton County.
Reissener said the panel
has instructed HDR to align
the proposed roadway with
the existing SR-20 rather
than locating it through the
habitat conservation acre-
age.
The plan, which sets
forth a long list of proposed
improvements to existing
roadways plus new facili-
ties, may be viewed on the
NWFTCA web page, www.
nwftca.com. Among the
plan's elements is four-lan-
ing U.S. 331 from the south
end of Choctawhatchee Bay
to south of 1-10, including
the bay bridge.
"Our next step is the po-
litical process," Reissener


said.
A Nov. 13 NWFTCA pub-
lic meeting was held in Car-
rabelle to kick off discussion
about U.S. 98's vulnerabil-
ity to hurricanes and tropi-,
cal storms and evacuation
alternatives. The NWFTCA
has also scheduled a meet-
ing for 10 a.m. on Nov. 15 at


the Gulf Breeze City Hall,
where the members are to
discuss Franklin County
and Eglin studies related to
the master plan, along with
public outreach.
Information on past and
upcoming meetings of the
NWFTCA can be found on
the Web page listed above.


JIM ANDERS of Camp Creek serves as Walton County's
representative on the governor-appointed Northwest Florida
Transportation Corridor Authority. Anders provided a re-
port on the initiative at the Nov. 7 Walton County Chamber
of Commerce Power of Business luncheon.

Florida Caverns State Park

holds 10th annual Fall Festival


By -/EFFI'iEYPOIt EL. I.
TL. air was filled with
the s-ihts and sounds of
hundreds of school children
on field trip as the Florida
Caverns State Park kicked
of its toth annual Fall Fes-
tival on Fridaiy. November
2. St udiits from all over the
Florida Panhandle gathered
to see the making of sugar
cane syrup, Civil War re-
enactors and generally have
a good time away from the
confines of the classroom.
The annul event also al-
lows children, as well as
adults, the luxury of look-
ing back in time without
enduring the hardships of
the period. There were dem-
onstrations on how to make
lye soap, how to cook over
an open fire and how to spin
wool into thread.
Civil War Re-enactors
demonstrated the intrica-
cies of loading and firing a
cannon an event the chil-
dren never seem to tire of
watching.
"This is my sixth year
involved with the festival,"
said Lt. Rick Peters of the
North Florida Artillery. "I
love teaching the children
about the time period and
how people.lived years ago."
Andthef" popular stop
along the way, albeit a more
modern one, was the funnel
cake booth where everyone
filled up for lunch.
"This is my second year


with the booth," said funnel
cake Sue."We are very hap-
py with the turnout. Atten-


THIS SIXTY GALLONS of sugar cane juice will result in just six gallons of syrup. The
dance has really entire rendering process takes approximately five hours to complete. (All photos by Jeffrey
dance has really increased Powell)-
compared to last year. It is
just fun to be here." ___ ....


THEY LIKE IT, THEY LOVE IT, THEY WANT SOME MORE OF IT. The sensational
'Watsons'of Jay provided a musical backdrop to the festivals attendees.


CAROLYN HARRELL AND HER PARENTS took part
in the festivals re-enactment ceremonies. -Her great-great-
great-grandfather was a member of the 8th Florida Infantry
Co.E from Jackson County.


Several building


projects move forward


By LEAH STRATMANN
Five building projects
came before the planning
commissioners last week,
after being reviewed by the
county's planning depart-
ment. All were judged to
meet the minimum stan-
dards of the land develop-
ment code, although condi-
tions were placed on some of
them.
The first was Blackstone
Planned Unit Development
(PUD) and a Development
of Regional Impact (DRI).
This major development
order submitted by Black-
stone Development Compa-
ny consists of 3,300 residen-
tial units of which 2,000 are
single-family. Another 750
townhouses, 100 condomini-
ums and 400 apartments
complete the housing unit.
Part of the development
calls for an 18-hole golf
course with club house, cart
barn and maintenance facil-
ity, 145,000 square feet of
commercial retail and ser-
vice space, which includes a
daycare facility. Completing
the project is 37,500 square
feet of office space and a
12.3-acre RV park.
The property consists of
approximately 1,240 acres
of land with a land use of ru-
ral residential (RR). Part of
the overall application asks
for a change in designation
from RR to DRI and mixed
use. The site is located on
the north side of U.S. 90, ap-
proximately 3.5 miles east
of the Okaloosa County line
in Mossy Head.
Speaking for Bonezzi De-


velopment, David Campbell
explained the development
is in four phases of construc-
tion from 2007 to 2020. The
project will be located across
from industrial land owned
by the county. Eglin AFB is
south of the proposed proj-
ect. "We are hoping this de-
velopment will be approved
in time for the BRAC align-
ment. This is a development
focused on young working
families and retirees, but
it is still at the conceptual
level and 42 acres will be
donated to the school sys-
tem for future use," he said.
A motion was made to
grant approval to the proj-
ect once a few county plan-
ning department conditions
were met. All approved the
motion.
An application was sub-
mitted on behalf of Destiny
Worship Center for an ad-
dition to the church located
at 122 Poinciana Blvd. The
plans call for the addition
of two buildings totaling
54,513 square feet of space,
bringing the total church
space to 74,813 on 6.37
acres of land. It was noted
that as the church abuts
a residential area, the air
conditioning units would be
located on the roof to mini-
mize noise.
A motion was made and
passed by all to allow devel-
opment to proceed.
JSA, Inc. submitted an
application to construct sev-
en mini-storage buildings
with a total of 81,900 square
feet on 7.4 acres of land with
a land use designation of


estate residential. The site
is located at the southeast
intersection of Coy Burgess
Loop and Rogers Road. The
county planning commis-
sioners granted approval.
A major development or-
der submitted by P&B Man-
agement asked to amend a
previously-approved devel-
opment order by request-
ing a deviation from the
sidewalk requirement for
subdivisions. The site abuts
the Choctawhatchee Bay on
Sand Road, north of U.S. 98.
The reason for the request
was to preserve a number of
trees. Pat Blackshear noted
she had visited the site and
the area in which the devel-
opers were asking to be al-
lowed not to have sidewalks
was in the interior of the
project and would not cre-
ate a hardship on residents.
"It is a beautiful area and ,I
would like to see the trees
saved," Blackshear noted.
The commissioners voted to
grant the waiver.
Jenkins, Stanford & As-
sociates, for Pastels Concep-
tual PUD, proffered' the fi-
nal building project request.
The project consists of 228
apartments and 379,400
square feet of commercial
space on 19.43 acres of land
with a land use of village
mixed use. The site is locat-
ed on the northeast corner
of U.S. 98 and CR-393. The
builders are planning on
building retail office space,
medical offices, a hotel and
restaurants. The commis-
sioners approved the con-
ceptual plan.

Planning Commission


approves small scale


amendments


By LEAH STRATMANN
With a relatively short
agenda, things moved swift-
ly at the meeting of the Wal-
ton County Planning Com-
mission last week. The first
quasi-judicial item of busi-
ness was a request by Lloyd
Blue to change 7.67 acres of
land, currently. a sawmill,
from large-scale agricul-
ture to general agriculture
or any less dense or intense
category. The parcel is lo-
cated north of the Choctaw-
hatchee Bay in the Cowford
area, south of east SR-20
and north of the Choctaw-
hatchee River.
Cliff Knauer came before
the commissioners on behalf
of Patsy Mall requesting
a small-scale amendment
to change 0.672 acres from
neighborhood preservation
area to infill or any less
dense category. The par-
cel is located south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay, on
the south side of CR-30A in
the Gulfview Heights sub-
division at the southeast
corner of Gulfview Heights
Street and CR-30A. Knauer
explained that the area was
formerly platted as commer-
cial, but this designation
has expired. "I have no other


option but to ask for infill. I
think it is good planning to
have a mix," he said, refer-
ring to the existing commer-
cial operations in the area.
Jack Abbitt, a resident
in the area, was opposed to
granting this amendment
change. "We understand
that the 30A corridor is a
developing area. Many of
us bought in there because
it is platted as a residential
area. The concern I have is
there is no reason to change
the designation. This is in
the interior of a developed
single-family home area.
I see no reason to change
the others; we should leave
it as residential preserva-
tion. The area is not all com-
mercial. The majority of the
property is residential. Yes,
there is some commercial
development in the area, but
majority is not," he said.
South Walton Commu-
nity Council director Anita
Page echoed Abbitt's con-
cerns. "It is disturbing that
someone can go into a plat-
ted subdivision and change
the designation of a couple
of lots. I don't understand
how the other two lots reach
the definition of infill. You
are going to liave subdivi-


sions adjacent to 30A. Infill
refers to un-platted land in
the county code," she noted.
Bill Bard joined the voices
of those against the change.
"I'm against this because the
concept of changing a plat-
ted subdivision should not
be set. It will have ramifica-
tions throughout the county.'
I think it is a very bad prec-
edent to set," he said.
Commissioner Randy
Gardner noted that the land
was once categorized as
commercial, but that des-
ignation has since expired
and the land returned to
a residential designation.
"Why should we change it?
Historically commercial
land does not over time go
from commercial to residen-
tial. It is the other way. This
piece is not a spot land use
change request and I think
it is a reasonable request,"
he said.
Tom Terrell agreed with
Knauer. "Changing it to in-
fill is his only option now. It
was once commercial, but
we no longer have that op-
tion," he said.
When a motion was made
to grant the amendment
change, all the commission-
ers voted affirmatively:

Why we

celebrate

Veterans

Day
By: DIONTRE' PATE
We celebrate Veterans'
Day for many reasons. I
would like to share with you
some of those reasons. First,
if it wasn't for our veter-
ans, we Americans wouldn't
have many of the rights we
enjoy today. Next, many of
these veterans risked their
lives for us, and finally, the
nurses who are often over-
looked, help the soldiers re-
cover from their, injuries.
To begin with, if it
weren't for our veterans we
wouldn't have any rights.
For example, if they weren't
brave enough to go to war
and sacrifice themselves,
we wouldn't have the right
to say what we want to say
or even the right to publish
anything in newspapers,
books or magazines. I can't
even begin to think how
terrible that would be. So
'thank you' veterans. I don't
know how life would be
without you.
Another thing, if they
didn't go to war and be
brave enough to die for us,
I shudder to think what
life in these United States
would be like. To think if
they had not done their job
defending freedom, we prob-
ably wouldn't be able to even
walk outside without fear of
terrorists blowing up build-
ings or cars. That's why vet-
erans are important. They'
have, fought to.,,secure,. our.
country against terrorists.
Last, but not least, the
nurses played important
roles in the military. They
have given of themselves
to nurse wounded veterans
back to health. It takes a
lot of trust for the soldiers
to let nurses bandage their
wounds and help them get
better. That's why the nurs-
es deserve being honored as
well on Veterans day.
To sum it all up, Veterans
Day is a very special day, a
day when we celebrate with
parades and feature our vet-
erans as honored guests.

The North Pole announced today that Kristopher Krin-
gle-more widely known as "Santa Claus"-will visit Alys
Beach on Saturday, Dec. 8. Santa's arrival just happens to
coincide with Alys Beach's annual "Alys in Winter Wonder-
land" party at Fonville Press.
"We are thrilled that Mr. Kringle has worked us into his
extremely busy holiday schedule," said Kelli Arnold, Recre-
ation Manager at Alys Beach. "Really, his timing could not
have been more perfect. But hey-he's Santa, right?"
The festivities begin at 3 p.m. and last until 6 p.m. Be- -,
fore Santa arrives, partyguests will decorate holiday cook-
ies while enjoying hot cocoa and cider. Guests will also be
given the opportunity to write their holiday "wish list" and,
then hand-deliver it to Santa Claus upon his arrival.
Santa will officially illuminate the Alys Beach Christmas -'
tree at 5:30 p'm. A spokes-elf said that Santa is eager to.'
take photos with good little boys and girls. The "Alys in
Winter Wonderland" party is free and open to the public,
although Santa encourages guests to bring a toy or canned
good item to share with those who are less fortunate. Santa
will give all donated items to "Caring and Sharing of South
Walton," a non-profit organization dedicated to helping out
those in need in our local area.

Everyone
k nows w s
that as J
soon as the
decaying
jack-o-lan-
tern is
kicked off
the front
porch from
Halloween, Christ-
mas decorations are
being placed in store
fronts and on light
poles and the world
kicks into high holi-
day mode for the
next two months.

It was once just in the
month of December that we
celebrated the Christmas
season. The occasional holi-
day magazines and depart-
ment store catalogs would
come around Thanksgiving,
giving shoppers the inside on
what would be on sale on the
"buyer's Friday" that always
followed turkey day.
But a growing trend seems
to be getting the decorations
and all the festivities kicked
in, two or three weeks before
Thanksgiving. This is when
analysts say that the buying
public begins really watching
the sales pages, clips news-
papers ads andwatches tele-
vision commercials more
than any other time of the
year.
Department stores have
used the early Christmas
rush scenario for years and
have increasingly been get-
ting an earlier jump on the
madness in the past 10 years


ago.
An early pioneer of this
approach is Macy's in New
York. Since the early 1900s,
the department store's head-'
quarters began dressing
thier windows for the holi-
days and revealing them the
day after the turkey had
cleared the table.
They also sponsor the
Macy's Parade on Thanksgiv-
ing.
Along with the tree at
Rockefellar Plaza, they are
the three most highly-antici-
pated holiday attractions in
the world. Speaking of
Rockefeller Plaza, the tree
was erected last Wednesday,
and lights are being strung
right now for the unveiling
and lighting on Nov. 28.
Locally, one can take a
stroll by Lake DeFuniak, or
many of the side streets
around the lake, and get a
feel that the Christmas sea-
son is near. From unlit
Christmas trees in the yards,
storefront windows covered,
up in anticipation of the af-
ter-Thanksgiving shopping
day, 'the park around the
lake is adorned with numer-
ous figures, props and of
course, dripping in thou-
sands of lights that will be
turned on Nov. 23.
At any given mall or shop-


ping center,
the "Santa
-11 arrives Nov.
IT 23" sign is
11 posted every-
where and
Christmas
trees and
ttiLJ,'t oversized
packages
held by ani-
mated elves
bombard the
center of the
mall. The season is just
around the corner and mer-
chants, retailers and other of
those who'thrive and survive
on the Christmas season,
don't want you to forget.
Many commercials have
already begun *showing
people frantic because they
have not filled their family
and friend's wish list and
now everything is sold out.
This was a commercial that
began running in late Octo-
ber to encourage consumers
to purchase gift cards on line,
rather than fighting the holi-
day mobs.
Throughout the next four
to six weeks, holiday jingles,
Christmas advertisements,
seasonal sales and holiday
specials will bombard the
senses. It will be an on-
slaught of holiday activities,
intended, in some cases, to
guilt you into buying.

As the season approaches
and the holidays kick into
high-gear, remember that it
is the time of giving. celeratt-
ing and donating to a worthy
charity. But don't lose sight
of the meaning of Christmas
and remember the true rea-
son for the season.
Also, try to enjoy Thanks-
giving and that time with
your family in the middle of
all the Christmas madness.

WARS FROM FRONT


ing was that 16 percent of
the water from the lake
would be redirected to pro-
vide more drinking water
to Atlanta. The group also
agreed to meet with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to
work on a manual helping
states through the drought
process' and by mid-Febru-
ary 2008 to meet on a hard
solution between the states
most affected.
Riley sent 'out a press
release after the meeting
thanking Alabama's two
U.S. senators for their as-
sistance in making sure the
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers enforces water with-


drawal limits on the Cobb
County-Marietta Water Au-
thority. During that meet-
ing, the Corps of Engineers
agreed with Alabama's long-
standing assertion that the
Cobb County-Marietta Wa-
ter Authority is exceeding
its allowable water with-
drawals. Those excessive
withdrawals have taken
place at the same time the
Corps has reduced the flow
of water i:fio Alabama. The
Corps said it was giving the
Atlanta-area water author-
ity 10 days to explain how it
will come into compliance.
'We'were very pleased to
learn that the Corps intends


to enforce the limits of its
water storage contract with
-CCMWA. As you know, the
Corps has reduced releases
from Lake Allatoona that
flow into, Alabama, so allow-
ing CCMWA to withdraw
200 percent of its authorized
amount was intolerable,"
Alabama's senators Rich-
ard Shelby and Jeff Ses-
sions wrote in a letter to
the commanding general of
the U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers. "Alabama could not
be any more pleased with
the results we've gotten
from Thursday's meeting
in Washington," Governor
Riley said. "I want to thank


Senator Shelby and Sena-
tor Sessions for their work
to help make sure Alabama
gets its fair share of water."
Crist released the fol-
lowing statement as well,"I
am grateful to Secretary
Kempthorne and Chairman
Connaughton for their ef-
forts in bringing the three
states together on this im-
portant issue. I am pleased
with the outcome of today's
meeting.
"Florida's commitment is
two-fold. First, we must all
share responsibility during
the current drought. The
people of Atlanta, the econ-
omy of the Florida Panhan-


dle, and the energy needs
in Alabama and the South-
east must all be protected.
Second, working with Gov-
ernor Riley and Governor
Perdue, Florida is commit-
ted to a long-term solution
that focuses on conservation
of water on both the Chatta-
hoochee and Flint Rivers. It
is tremendously important
that a comprehensive long-
term solution be adopted so
that we do not find ourselves
here again. In an effort to
continue the dialogue on
a comprehensive 'solution,
I have invited my friends,
Governors Riley and' Per-
due, to join me in Tallahas-


see in December."
However, Florida's Envi-
ronmental Protection Chief
doesn't agree with the Bush
arraigned truce. Just this
week, Florida withdrew
from the arraignment stat-
ing that Florida no longer
will honor the agreement
due to damages to the envi-
ronment and fishing indus-
tries.
Droughts have lon- leer
a part of history according to
environmental scientist ; and
are an inventible part of life,
but learning to manage the
droughts have become an
issue politicians must face.
In the meantime, the water
wars continue.
