Council to


consider sign


moratorium


By ALICIA LEONARD
Signs, decorations, and
shiny new toys were on the
agenda when the DeFuniak
Springs City Council con-
vened November 13, 2007.
Howard Rinker, chair-
man of Christmas Reflec-
tions, requested funds from
the group's reserves to,
purchase new decorations
for the city's street lights.
The decorations will total
$8,875 and cover 44 poles
between U.S. 90, Hwy. 83


CHUCK ROESSER, of
Buffalo, NY, traveled here
to talk to the Council about
finally repairing the land-
mark First National Bank
Clock.


and U.S. 331. Rinker stated
to the Council, "I thought
we would have to request
matching funds, but we got
such a good deal on the new
decorations that we will be
able to pay for it out of our
reserves, with the Council's
okay." The request was ap-
proved 5-0 by the Council.'
The Council then listened
to a request for a sign vari-
ance by James W Busby Jr.,
who requested approval to,
move an existing billboard
located on Hwy. 90. Among
items mentioned in the re-
quest, Busby asked for the
sign to be measured from the
curve instead of the grade,
making it 10 feet taller than
other signs. It was also re-
quested it be set back from
Wabash Street right-of-way
and not face the city park.'
Greg Scoville, planning di-
rector for the city, advised
the city that he could find
no evidence of hardship to
allow these changes and
recommended the Council
to consider a moratorium on
any new, expanded or relo-
cated off-premises signs, to
allow staff time to develop
new codes priV.i-en.-for off-
premise signs. The Council
heeded Scoville's advice and
voted 4-1 against the vari-
ance, with Don Harrison
voting for the variance. The
Council did approve unani-
mously to look into a mora-
torium on all off-premise

signs.
Dennis Ray and Chuck
Roeser approached the
Council on the issue of re-
-pairing the First National
Bank Clock on Baldwin Av-
enue. Roeser traveled from
Buffalo, New York, and is an
expert in antique clock re-
pair. Roeser told the Council
that extensive repairs were
needed on the clock, as well
as the master unit inside
the old bank vault. The re-
pair would mean both units
would have to be removed
and taken back to his re-
pair shop in New York with
an estimated repair time of
six months to a year. Ro-
eser told the Council that
the clock was probably built
around 1915. The Council
requested a written esti-
mate of the cost associated
'with the clock repair and

Sheriff asks


for assistance


and funds


By DOTTY NIST
In October, Walton Coun-
ty Sheriff Ralph Johnson re-
quested the use of the coun-
ty-owned Lang property
for additional parking and
impound space. On Nov. 13
he came forward with a list
of related needs totaling ap-
proximately $491,000.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell had met with
Johnson on the 20-acre Lang
property, located north of
the county's new jail and
the sheriffs new adminis-
trative facility, to identify
Johnson's needs. The county
owns a total of about 1,000
acres in that vicinity. The
list included a helipad, 88
parking spaces, an impound
yard with fencing, and. a
metal storage building.
"A half a million dollars
is a lot of money," District 3,
Commissioner Larry Jones
observed.
"We're six weeks into the
budget year;" Jones added,
"why was this not in the
budget?"
Johnson said he would
look at his budget to see
what portion of the cost he
would be able to provide. He
added that cu ,cenily' he is
trying to get new personnel


on board and is not certain
what the exact costs will be
to do that.
"What of this can we put
off for a while?" asked Dis-
trict 4 Commissioner Sara
Comander.
"Which are the most criti-
cal (needs)?" questioned Dis-
trict 5 Commissioner Cindy
Meadows.
Johnson noted that lack
of a helipad in the north end
of the county resulted in the
loss of "quite a few hours" in
a recent manhunt.
Bell thought that the
metal building, estimated ag
$250,000, could possibly be
put off but noted' that thp
county pays $1,200 a month
to the Association of Retired
Citizens to lease the build-
ing that the sheriff current-
ly uses for storage. ,
After some discussion.
the commissioners agreed
on the helipad, parking and
impound yard as the most
pressing needs. The price
tag on those items was cal-
culated at $161.636.
A public hearing is to be
advertised to amend the
county budget for funding of
those items, minus the por-
tion to be provided through
the sheriffs budget.

Walton Couni
Bill- Imfeld has filed as
a Republican candidate for
sheriff of Walton County,
and his campaign is begin-
ning to take off. Imfeld is
scheduling appearances at
meet and greets throughout
the county to educate vot-
ers about his experience in
law enforcement and man-
agement and to seek input
about issues and concerns.
Imfeld joined the race for
sheriff as a response to sev-
eral blunders under the cur-
rent Walton County Sheriffs
Administration. The office
was fined three times for a
total of $21,323 for failing
to file timely federal payroll
tax forms from November
2003 to October 2004. In Au-
gust, the administration lost
$16,000 in an e-mail phish-
ing scam. Also in August,
two female deputies claimed
they were fired because they
were pregnant.
"It has to change," Imfeld
said.
Imfeld brings 25 years
of law enforcement experi-
ence- to the table. He began
a career with the Federal
Bureau of Investigation in
1975, after having worked
as a civilian accountant for
six years. Dur-
ing those 25 years with the
FBI, Imfeld investigated a
variety of white collar and
violent crimes, managed
personnel, and adminis-
tered massive budgets. Af-
ter retiring from the FBI, he
returned to his home state
in 2000 to serve Walton
County as finance director.
He has seen the county's
budget grow from about $50
million to over $100 million.
He is focusing his cam-
paign on leadership, man-
agement, accountabil-


RUSSELL HUGHES in his office at RONITA HINOTE, principal of West De-
Walton High School. Funiak Elementary.



In the principal's office


By BRUCE COLLIER
This is the second of a planned series of
articles on Walton County school princi-
pals. This article focuses on the principals
of West'DeFuniak Elementary and Walton
High School.
Ronita Hinote is in her third year as
principal of West DeFuniak Elementary
School (WDES). A DeFuniak Springs na-
tive and graduate of Walton High School,
Hinote has taught elementary school and
was a pre-kindergarten coordinator, then
taught and served as principal at Bay Ear-
ly Education Center. She sees the mission
of her school as being to "set the founda-
tions to teach kids to love school."
"We take them in and mold them," she
says, adding that although decisions are
made based on data, "a child is more than
just data." WDES has 735 students, from
pre-kindergarten to grade five. Total staff,
including 52 instructors, is 91.
The day begins early, with breakfast
served at 7:25 a.m.. WDES qualifies for
"free and reduced" price breakfasts and
lunches. Hinote believes it has made a dif-
ference for many students. "It helps them
focus." Lunch is served between 10:30 a.m.
and 12:35 p.m., and school dismisses for
the day at 2:20 p.m.
The percentage of students for whom


English is not a first language is 13 percent.'
WDES has a bilingual first-grade teacher
and two bilingual aides. They speak Span-
ish, but Hinote says there are some Chi-
nese and Vietnamese-speaking children in
school, as well. Volunteers from the commu-
nity have been helpful for those students.
"We have a wonderful PTO (parent-teach-
er organization)," says Hinote. WDES has
been designated a Golden Volunteer School,
a distinction based on number of hours of
volunteer work from the community. WDES
parents can be seen helping with bulletin
boards, in classes, and even in gardening.
Hinote's day begins at 7 a.m. and she usu-
ally finds herself leaving at around 5 or 6:30
p.m. There is no "typical day" for her. She
believes her job as principal is to "support
teachers, students and parents. It takes all
three for a successful school."
To that end, Hinote tries to spend "as
much time as possible" in classrooms, and
even does lunchroom duty.
WDES students get a "comprehensive"
range of subjects, with an emphasis on
learning to .read, starting at kindergarten
level. Writing, math, and some science are
also taught. Learning technology (meaning
computers) is also considered important,

ity, and communication. T'
reach these goals, he pronim
ises to seek accreditation by
the state of Florida.
"Accreditation is a top
priority," he said. "When the
department is accredited by-
the state, there's a formal
program in place that focus-
es on training.
Under this program, our
deputies will learn how to
better investigate violent
crime scenes and burglaries,
white-collar crimes, identity,
theft, and more. Accredita-
tion also provides the frame-
work for a fair and clear sys-
tem of establishing career
paths and promotions."
He also plans to develop
a system for tracking, trend-
ing, and responding to crime
in Walton County. To ad-
dress gang violence and il-
legal immigration, Imfeld
proposes to work with law.

In what Councilman
Bobby Kemp estimated was
the "shortest meeting in his-
tory" of the Paxton Town
Council, 17 minutes dis-
posed of a short November
agenda. Present at the Nov.
13 meeting were Council
members Kemp, Ann Sex-
ton, Bill McRae, Jenice Arm-
strong, and Paxton Mayor
Wanda Smith. Councilman
Joe Melton was absent, still
recovering from recent sur-
gery. Also present was City
Attorney Lori Bytell. The
meeting came to order at 7
p.m.
Following routine ap-
proval of October minutes


and bills, the Council heard
a second reading of proposed
Ordinance 07-03, which
would enact rate changes
for water and sewerage ser-
vice for school and commer-
cial uses. The Council voted
unanimously to adopt the
ordinance.
Paxton Assembly of God
Church requested and was
granted a one-time waiver
of an excessive water bill.
The unusually high rate was
attributed to a leaky faucet.
Council member Sexton ab-
stained from voting, owing
to an affiliation with the
church.
Mayor Smith requested.
and got Council approval for


a "one-time raise" of $100 for
town employees, to be given
to employees at Thanks-
giving, in time for holiday
shopping. This was granted
unanimously.
City Attorney Bytell re-
ported to the Council that
she had spoken with the at-
torney representing Timber
Holdings of Florida, Inc.
In a heated public meeting
held Nov. 5, the Council
had voted unanimously not
to annex some 640 acres of
property owned by Timber
Holdings. Citing the "pas-
sionate" objections made by
some citizens to that annex-
ation, the property owner
has reportedly decided to


consider other development
possibilities, and will take
no further action on annexa-
tion.
Department reports
brought the Council's atten-
tion to the repair of water
damage done by a faulty ice
machine in the town hall,
Christmas decorations and
the upcoming Christmas
parade, and the status of
an engineer's "punch list"
for the town's new well con-
struction project. Also noted
was good progress in clean-
up of various areas in town,
including Peachtree Street.
The meeting adjourned at
7:17 p.m.


COMMUNITY CALENDAR |

The annual meeting of the Walton County Fair Associa-
tion will be held Saturday, Dec. 8, 4 p.m., at the Walton
County Fair building. Everyone is invited to attend. For

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor's comment
By RON KELLEY

Politically-perfect posturing
Most of us assume that all the really slick politicians
work in Tallahassee and Washington D.C., and for the most
part, that's true. It's hard to top those folks for spreading
pure political poppycock. However, once in a great while,
we see a spark of true political genius right here. The re-
cent meeting of the Walton County School Board to decide
the fate of a classic British play, "Blithe Spirit," is a case in
point.
In case you've been living in a cave or suffer from short-
term memory loss, South Walton High School students have
been working on a production of "Blithe Spirit," a light com-
edy that takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to spiritualism
and seances.
A Fort Walton Beach man objected for religious reasons.
A school committee was convened to review the play. It
passed muster and the play was back on until the man
appealed the decision. That caused the school board to stop
the play again and hold a special meeting in south Walton
to resolve the matter.
.You might think that with such weighty issues as reli-
gious freedom and censorship, there would be no way to
please anyone. Not true.
'School staff reported that high schools all over America
had performed the play for decades (without citing a single
case of demonic possession). Staff asked for permission to
"sanitize" the play, but received no official answer from the
play's copyright holder.
The citizen who objected to the play got to speak his mind,
as did local religious leaders and followers, many of whom,
had never read the play. The school principal said he wants
more uplifting plays, though he originally okayed "Blithe
Spirit" for production.
Some parents, teachers and citizens- spoke out in favor
of calm reason and of showing the students how free speech
is applied, as well as why censorship is generally consid-
ered un-American.
The school board members spoke for and against the play
and then voted 3-2 not to ban. the play from the students
and from the curriculum countywide, although it still won't
be performed at SWHS because it can't be "sanitized."
What makes all this so amazing is that, with the school
board's vote, everybody won!
The objector from Fort Walton Beach and all the church
pastors won because the play will not be performed at the
school. The principal won because he won't have to have
the play at his school and face the wrath of the protesters.
The parents, teachers and citizens won because they pub-
licly stood up for their children, as well as for truth, justice
and The American Way.
The school board won because the majority voted against
outright censorship. The two who voted to censor the play
won because they can report to their supporters that they
gave it their best effort. The superintendent won because
she artfully managed to express neither support or con-
demnation, while stating that the play would not go on.
- Perfect. I'm telling you, this was the finest example of
professional political gamesmanship I've witnessed in
Walton County in a long time.
What about the students who put such time, effort and
talent into the production, you ask? Well, it's true that they
lost the chance to put on a really fine show, but who cares?
It was never really about them anyway.

Correction
I. the president of the Am Vets Post 178 Ladies Auxil-
iary would like to offer a sincere apology to the V.F.W.'s
quartermaster for wrongly accusing him of the Veteran's
Day happening between us. I later found out that it was
not the quartermaster, it was the V.F.W. Commander that
said this was for -vets only." We. the Sons of Amvets and
Ladies Auxiliary, went by the paper given to us of who
was representing each organization. We talked to the city
manager and got things worked out with her, which we
greatly appreciate her effort in damage control and meet-
ing with us to help on the situation, but still have not
heard from the Commander of V.F.W.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor,
Sharks are beautiful. Yet we kill them by the millions. They
are one of Earth's apex predators handily controlling two-
thirds of the planet for the last 450 million years. Yet, in the
blink of an eye we are wiping them out.
Evolutionarily, we are not on the shark's menu. Yet as more
and more humans wander into their realm, it becomes more
likely accidents will happen as sharks misidentify prey which
has only recently appeared on their radar.
Sharks keep the ocean clean and healthy and they must
continue because the ocean controls the atmosphere we need
to survive.
Knowing this,what have we done? We proudly marched into
the gulf and killed a pregnant Tiger shark for the joy of the
beer drinkers hanging around the docks wanting to see
blood. But then the Destin History and Fishing Museum grew
wise and realized this was not a sustainable way to live and
cancelled future slaughters.
So how did Destin (a community built on
fishing) respond? We marched right back into the gulf under
the guise of the Destin Fishing Rodeo and killed another one,
this time a pregnant Mako shark.
If you thought killing one pregnant shark drew bad inter-
national press for Destin, how about killing two?
Oh, the folks on the boat bringing it in knew they were in
for a tough time and they had their PR machine cranked up
..."It didn't hurt the population," "It was once in a lifetime," "It
was a record," "It'd be eaten at local restaurants," etc. It
weighed-in at 844 pounds and 200 some-1.ss when gutted. I
Now what we are hearing from those'who make a living at
the docks is that it was so big because it ,was pregnant with
seven pups.
Congratulations, Destin, you killed another 'mommy'
shark. The second this year. Good luck explaining that to your
kids.
Make no mistake, sharks mean us no harm and have no
desire to hurt you. Yet we pull them into our boats, cut off
their fins and throw them back into the ocean to alive only to
die a torturously slow death. Which one is the monster here?
This is indefensible, shameful, and inexcusable. I live in
Destin and I am ashamed.

Timothy Mahar
Destin

Editor,
Ray Sanson spoke out the other day against Hometown De-
mocracy going on the ballot next year to give the voters the
chance to decide our land uses. Ray, I do not think you under-
stand totally about what people out here in the real world feel
like. I wish you would take the time to understand why there
is a need for Hometown Democracy instead of just opposing
it.
There are people who have been let down by our govern-,
ments and counties and that some of us feel they have sold us.
out. Ray, old Hwy. 98 in Destin is an example. Even though
the people voted. it down years ago, the Destin commissioners
still sold that beachside road to a developer and now, instead
of that road going along the beach, it is bypassed around his
development giving him more beachfront.
We, the people, Ray, have had enough and the local govern-
ment has had their chance for all these years to get it right. In
my opinion, they have not. Ray, you are entitled to your opin-
ion, but you should actually be for Hometown Democracy. This
will give local leaders more time for the citizens they serve.
So, you see you may want to get on the Internet yourself
and reconsider your position and sign a petition. I believe the
newspaper made you out as if we, the citizens that voted you
in office, are now too stupid to vote for land use changes. I
don't think you really meant for it to come out the way it
sounded. Ray, it would be nice to give us the opportunity or a
chance to debate you bn this subject to try to convince you this
could be one of the best things to happen to Florida in years.

Editor,
I attended and participated in the Walton County School
Board meeting convened to pass judgement on the South
Walton High School Drama Department's production of Noel
Coward's long-acclaimed play "Blithe Spirit" (a comedic farce
written by him during the harsh times of WWII England).
My best estimate is that three to four hundred people
were in attendance with almost three quarters of them sum-
moned by the concerted efforts of various pastors in Walton
and Okaloosa counties to attend in a mass support demon-
stration of what was referred to in reported accounts as "not
a censorship issue, but a spiritual battle" (Northwest Florida
Daily News 11/15/07). I'll wager that many of the same
"300" were in attendance at the unsuccessful opposition
movement against Fort Walton Beach High School's produc-
tion of Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" (of which I had
the pleasure of attending this past Wednesday night's su-
perb performance by a proud and talented group of students
who truly didn't deserve the unnecessary "spiritual battle"
pressure fomented upon them in the pre-production stages).
The drama students in South Walton High and Fort Wal-
ton High schools can well be described as being among the
"cream of the crop" of high school students. They are well-
focused, usually with a high scholastic average. These are
the kinds of students that school administrators, strive to
produce, the kinds of students that engender pride in every-
one who participates in their development in even the small-
est way.
My concern and fear last night at the meeting was that,
unlike Solomon, the Board of Education would "cut the baby
in half" and we would be propelled into a 1950s-censorship
situation, engendering a real, almost unsolvable, battle.
This almost occurred but for the last minute sensible ra-
tionale espoused by Chairman Mark Davis, who I believe
dodged a sticky 'political' situation for the Board, that left
both "points of view" with disappointing 'something to be
desired' accommodations. Noel Coward's works will be left
in the curriculum of the Walton County School System, but
the play, "Blithe Spirit," will not be performed because the
references to alcoholic cocktail consumption, cigarette smok-
ing, and language idiosyncrasies of the 1940s cannot be "sami-
tized" due to copyright law restrictions.
I can only hope and. pray that the "300" are as just as
concertedly zealous at Election Day polls, and I hope our
young students, many of whom will be at those polls next
year, have learned from this event just how important their
attendance is to the election process and how easily "politi-
cal correctness" can often trump and exacerbate reason if
due diligence is not exercised.
Do I have a "dog in this fight"? Yes, I'm the proud father
of a student involved in high school drama productions.
Bob Shaffer
Santa Rosa Beach
Editor,
In case you haven't noticed, and many people haven't,
Ron Paul is a candidate for the Republican nomination for
president. The media largely ignores him.
Why is his candidacy important? Because he is a cham-
pion of the Constitution, and none of the other candidates,
Democratic or Republican, are. On entering office all sena-
tors, House members, president, judges, and most state and
local officials take an oath to defend and protect the Consti-
tution. Nearly all of them are just mouthing off. Their oaths
are worthless. It doesn't mean beans. To Paul, an oath is a
solemn pledge to obey the Constitution, not to just talk the
talk, but to walk the walk. That separates him from the rest.
The Constitution is the very basis of the United States. It
is the law that supersedes all other law. Yet it is ignored by
the government that has been created to 'defend and pro-
tect' it. Should Ron Paul be elected to the presidency, maybe
he can deliver us from this pervasive hypocrisy.
As of now, he hovers in or near last place in the polls. He
probably can't overcome that, but this country sorely needs
him and we should be eager to pull the lever for him, win or
lose.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2007



Wind beneath




our wings


By ALICIA LEONARD
The first thing one no-
tices is the energy. There is
a current flowing through
the new and improved De-
Funiak Springs Municipal
Airport and much of that en-
ergy is emanating from one
.person, Jonathan Dunn.
Dunn took a trip across
the "big pond" from London,
England, a little over a year
ago to take over operations
as the fixed based operator
(FBO) for the DFS airport.
An FBO is a service man-
ager at an airport that, in
this instance is a private-
enterprise lease and runs
the day to day operations by
offering services. Dunn told
the Herald, "I was looking
for a challenge when I came
here and I've loved every-
day of watching this airport
grow and meeting the peo-
ple in this great community.
I agree with City Manager
Kim Kirby and believe we


really have a diamond

aviation area, they agree.

Heart to extend the runway at the
next airport. Dunn said, "That
that is would mean a whole other
unity world for us here. We have a
nty, as 4,100-foot runway right now
and we need a 5,000-foot
even runway to compete with the
country other airports, because of
ked to the difference in insurance

e same lot and corporate jets. "The
cost of insurance for pilots
and companies double when
you have a runway .under
5,000 feet. Normally, their
insurance may run around
$13,000 a year for them to
have the ability to land on a
5,000-foot runway, anything
shorter and the cost doubles
to around $26,000. If our
runway was 5,000 feet, we
wouldn't have a place left to
park a plane. We would be
full up and looking for more
space. It would also bring
significant economic devel-

airport is also scheduled to
get a new global positioning
system (GPS) in six months
and this will allow for safer
landings and more flight

sons will be set up to allow
students to learn at their
own pace and with a local
instructor.
Dunn also stressed that
the airport wants citizen in-
volvement most off all. "We
are the city's airport and
we invite everyone to come
out and take a look around


or.just come out on a Sun-
day afternoon and sit in the
swings out front and watch
the planes land and take off.
We are here for everyone,
no matter if they are a pi-
lot or not. This is everyone's
airport and I want them to,
come out, look around, feel
welcome and visit awhile."

An airport with swings
out front? Sounds like a
Southern airport. Dunn just
smiled and said, "They're
very comfortable, open to
everyone, and provide a
great sense of the commu-
nity we belong to here. So,
come on out and try one for
yourself."

senders to ways they can
help the foundation, such


as referring a child, making

Only one of these re-
quests is based in fact. In
1989, a then nine-year-old

wish was fulfilled in 1990 by
another wish-granting orga-

16 million cards. Craig is
now a healthy adult, and he
has requested an end to the
mail. Mail that is received
is forwarded to a recycling
center. The time and ex-
pense required to respond


to these inquiries distracts
the foundation from its ef-
forts on behalf of children
with life-threatening medi-
cal conditions, and more
importantly, can divulge in-
formation that is potentially
harmful to a child and his or
her family.

Today families all over the United States of America are
celebrating "Thanksgiving Day." There is a saying that
you can't appreciate where you are at unless you know
where you came from.
Let us remember with gratitude the first settlers who
endured great hardships to begin this great nation.
Let us remember our veterans and current military mem-
bers who have given their lives to keep us free. Without
these men and women of the past and present our day of
Thanksgiving would be very different.
Foremost let us be grateful to our Creator who has
blessed us with such abundance and freedom. For without
His continued guidance and blessing we would perish into
the history books as countless others have.

The Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) is
requesting the public's as-
sistance in gathering in-
formation about a burglary
that took place early on the
morning of Nov. 20. At ap-
proximately 3:30 a.m. that
morning, an unidentified
male subject used a concrete
block to break the entry door
at Raceway Service Station,
on U.S. 90 in Mossy Head.
Upon entry,- the suspect
stole about 30 cartons of
cigarettes and a cash draw-
er. He is described as wear-
ing blue pants with cargo
pockets, black jacket over a


light-colored hooded sweat-
shirt and yellow gloves. His
head and face were also cov-
ered with light-colored cloth
material. The suspect was
dropped off and picked up
by a second subject driving
la two-tone, mid-sized or full-
sized pickup truck or SUV.
Anyone with information
about the burglary or knowl-
edge of persons selling or
trading cartons of cigarettes
in the local area is asked
to contact Inv. Herb Haigh
with WCSO at 892-8111, or

Freeport Library collecting

canned goods for needy families


The Freeport Library
will be accepting donations
of canned .goods and any
non-perishable food items
through Dec. 20 for local
needy families. All collected
food items will be turned
over to Sharing and Caring
Hands, a 501(c)(3) chari-
table organization in De-
Funiak Springs.
"Our team thought this
was a good project to take
on," says branch library
manager Nicole Shinskie,
"since the library is con-
veniently located for most
people in the southern part


of the county."
She says the Freeport Li-
brary makes a good drop off
point for the non-perishable
items, since the non-profit
group is located another 16
miles north of the Freeport
community.
Citizens are welcome to
donate non-perishable food
items (only) during library
hours through Dec. 20. The
donation box will be clearly
labeled and placed in the en-
trance foyer of the library.
Library hours are Mon-
day -Wednesday, 10 a.m. 6
p.m., Thursday, 10 a.m. 8
p.m., and Friday Satur-


day, 10 a.m. 6 p.m.
"We are glad that we can
provide this service to such
a worthwhile organization,"
said Shinskie. "Sharing and
Caring Hands is a bridge
from the caring concerned
community to the people in
need of their help. We are
proud that our library will
be apart of that bridge, and
we hope the citizens of our
community will pull togeth-
er and be a part of this holi-
day effort."
For further information,
call Nicole Shinskie at (850)

Walton Teens kick-off

readathon for

Sheriffs Santa Patrol


The Walton County Li-
brary's Teen Advisory Board
has kicked off a readathon to
raise money for the Sheriffs
Santa Patrol and to encour-
age a love of reading. The
event ends Dec.7.
Beginning now through
Dec. 7, Walton County teens
are being encouraged to
read and raise money for
the amount of time they
read through sponsorships.
If a teen wishes to partici-
pate, they need to visit the
Freeport Library during op-
erating hours and pick up a
reading log, sponsor sheet
and instructions at the cir-
culation desk. Teens are
responsible for acquiring
sponsors to receive dona-
tions.
All funds raised through


the readathon will be do-
nated to the Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Santa Patrol
which provides presents
and food for the area's most
needy families during the
holidays. "We
are hoping to raise enough
money to make a significant
contribution to the Sheriffs
holiday program," says Ni-
cole Shinskie, manager of
the Freeport Library who
is orchestrating the reada-
thon. "I think this is a sig-
nificant way to engage our
young people in reading
while supporting such a sig-
nificant and worthy cause,"
she says.

AMONG THOSE ATTENDING the recent Walton County Council on Aging board meet-
ing was ex-employee Juanita Jackson, at left. (Photo by Chris Manson)


COA board opens floor to


complaints against director


By CHRIS MANSON
During last Wednesday's
regular monthly meeting,
the Walton County Coun-
cil on Aging (COA) board
listened to complaints from
ex-employees and others
against director Kay Brady.
Juanita Jackson, a COA
caseworker from Feb. 2002
to March 2003, was one of
seven people who raised
their hands after board
chairman Gene Ryan asked
that the parties who had
"concerns and complaints"
identify themselves.
Jackson said she "wasn't
really comfortable" when
Brady asked her to main-
tain client files in her home
office. Jackson also related
an incident during which
a patient was emotionally
abused by an assisted-living
facility owner. She said she
informed Brady about the
episode, but was frustrated
by the COA director's "inac-
tions." ,
Karen Satterfied' saidd
she -sought ,Brady's as-
sistance when her elderly
roommate's electricity was
about to be disconnected.
"She said she couldn't help
us. Then she said she need-
ed a disconnect notice."
Amber Harrison, the
daughter of a COA client,
said she made "every effort
to go through the chain of
command." She added that
she had called Ryan at home
in her attempts to resolve is-
sues with her mother's pow-
er of attorney. It was not
exactly clear what, if any,.
complaints she had against,
Brady.
Billie McKee said she re-
lied on the COA's services,
but that housekeepers bf-
ten failed to show up at her
home. "I called Ms. Brady,
and she said, 'That's not my
job,' but I thought it was
her job to know about these
things," said McKee.
"She doesn't do her job,"
McKee added. "It doesn't
matter that I'm old. I'm not
senile. I need some things
and I think it would be her
job to let us know, so we
don't have to sit there all
day."
Laura Curry, a certified
nurse assistant (CNA), ex-
plained that she had been
hurt on the job in 2005.
Curry said she approached
Ryan, Mayor Harold Car-
penter, and Walton County
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows about Brady.
"Kay did not fire me, but
she would not put me on
the schedule," said Curry.
"I didn't know she still had
me on the list as an inactive
employee."
She added that Brady
harassed her during the
two weeks she worked in
the COA office. "You could
ask her to help you with a
problem, and she would say,
'That's not my job."' Curry
urged the board to "do some-
thing" and added that other
people were "afraid to speak
up for fear of losing their
job." ,
At one point during the
complaints, COA board
member Annie Ruth Camp-
bell asked, "How come no-
body called me? I'm sure
someone could have gotten
a list of board members."
Later, when the subject


came up again, Brady said
the information was avail-
able at the Web site www.
waltoncountycouncilonag-
ing.org. This was the only
time that Brady commented
during the "new business"
portion of the meeting.
Rettha French, a case
manager with the COA un-
til six weeks ago, said that
during the year she worked
under Brady, clients would
often request care staff out-
sourced from Pensacola,
Destin, and Fort Walton
Beach. French said the re-
quests were almost always
denied due to the travel dis-
tance involved.
"They're short-staffed
here, and I wonder why,"
said French. "Kay is very
hard to work with. I have
seen her employees cry."
French added that Brady
had recently required her to
increase her workload to 60
hours a week, an increase
from the usual 35 to 40
hours, and was "asked to do
case management for people
who were not due."
French also spoke of Bra-
dy's lack of concern when
she was informed about the
"filthy, roach-infested" liv-
ing conditions of .one COA
client.
Jean Harvey, a former
Retired Senior Volunteer
Program (RSVP) coordina-
tor, said she never personal-
ly worked under Brady, but
used one of the building's of-
fices and often volunteered
to do data entry. "I enjoyed
being here and being around
seniors," Harvey said.
On one occasion, Harvey
said, she offered to deliver
Meals on Wheels when one
of the regular drivers did
not show up for work. "That
was the first and last time
(Brady) chewed me out," she
said.
Harvey apologized for
not calling any of the COA
board members prior to the
meeting. She said Brady
"did not care" that some el-
derly clients were going two
weeks without baths.
Strangely, board. chair-
man Gene Ryan refused to
allow the rest of the board
to look at the more than 100
signed statements by COA
clients and former staff
members, insisting that
they all be notarized, de-
spite listing phone numbers
and addresses.
"We have 100-something
affidavits and we will get
them notarized," said Har-
vey after Ryan had informed
the complainants that none
of the documents would be
taken into consideration
without notarization. "A lot
of elders are afraid to come
forward. If this causes a tid-
al wave, let it come."
Ryan said the board
would take all of the after-
noon's testimony under ad-
visement. There was some
discussion of taking the
complaints against Brady
to the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting on Nov. 27.
Vicky Kitahara, represent-
ing Commissioner Cindy
Meadows, informed Jack-
son and the' others that they
would need to contact the
county administrator and
be put on the agenda.
Ryan asked the other


board'members when they
wanted to review the infor-
mation. After some sched-
uling discussion, the board
members agreed to meet on
Monday, Nov. 26, at 2 p.m.
At this special meeting, Bra-
dy will have the opportunity
to respond to the allegations
leveled against her.,
Ryan was quick to defend
Brady and appeared uncon-
-cerned by the serious alle-
gations leveled against her.
"Some of these allegations
go back to before Kay was
director," Ryan told the Her-
ald-Breeze after the meet-
ing adjourned. "Some of this
stuff was brought before the
inspector general and found
to be groundless. The COA
is not a not-for-profit orga-
nization in the traditional
sense." Ryan said the COA
is "constantly inspected" by
the Area Agency on Aging
out of Pensacola.
"She has a tremendous
amount of responsibility,
and I think she does a good
job," Ryan said of Brady. "I
see the interactionhere all
the time. Some of these com-
plaints are out of line."

Department (DFSPD) in-
vestigators have succeeded
in tracing a suspect in an
August hit-and-run incident
in DeFuniak Springs. Willie
J. Pouncy was arrested last
week in Okaloosa County,
and booked with fleeing and
eluding, possession of nar-
cotics with intent to distrib-
ute, reckless driving, and
leaving the scene of an ac-
cident with injury.
Last August, Pouncy's ve-
hicle reportedly ran a stop
sign in De Funiak Springs.
When police attempted to
stop him, he fled, running
several more stop signs and
striking a woman. The vehi-
cle struck a parked vehicle,
and the driver, allegedly
Pouncy, took off on foot. In
the process, his vehicle's air-
bag deployed.
What led to Pouncy's ap-
prehension was a DNA sam-
ple, taken from the airbag.

and students have art and
music class once a week.
Physical education class is
held five days a week.
Students who exhibit
school leadership and per-
form well academically are
made "ambassadors," and
serve as visitor guides for
open-house events. Fourth-
and fifth-grade students
can also participate in. "Pow
Wow," an afternoon televi-
sion program, while learn-
ing audio and camera sys-
tems. There's also a book
club ("the kids love it," says
Hinote) and a school chorus,
the Bee Bops.
Hinote praises her "car-
ing and giving" staff, and her
"marvelous" assistant prin-
cipal Darlene Paul. She con-
siders herself fortunate in
that she has loved every job
she has had, including this
one. Even so, she still finds
it hard to tell parents that
their child's FCAT scores
will keep him or her from
passing. "I'm not against
accountability," she says,
adding that WDES is an "A"
grade school, "but there are
times when you have to step
back."
Russell Hughes took the
principal's chair at Walton
High School (WHS) in July
of 2007, part of a mass shift-
ing of principals that af-
fected a number of Walton
County schools. Hughes had
been principal of Walton
Middle School (WMS) for
three years, and says he was
"very surprised" when, the
change was ordered. "It had
been ten years since I was in
a high school setting."
However, WHS was not
exactly full of strangers.
Most of the 726 students had
known Hughes from WMS.
"I will enjoy where I am,"
says Hughes. "I enjoy work-
ing with children. That's the
kind of person I am."
The biggest difference
Hughes noticed about his
new post was "the mag-
nitude of extracurricular
activities,", and the "seri-
ousness" of the athletic pro-


EROM FRONT
gram. "This is the last stop
for preparation for life," he
observes. "We have to make
sure [college-bound stu-
dents] are prepared for their
community and for higher
learning. Guidance is also
needed for those who don't
want to go on to college."
The students are not the
only ones who take athletics
to heart. "The community's
attitude toward a school is
set by athletics." Even so,
Hughes' biggest concern
is improving the school's
grade on FCAT scores. WHS
scored below average on its
FCAT performance, despite
a "phenomenal" showing on
math. Hughes has institut-
ed an "Academic Ambush"
program to address the
problem.
The program is designed
to help students and to give
teachers an opportunity to
hone their own professional
skills, including reading
strategies that can be trans-
ferred to students. "Reading
has always been a concern at
WHS," says Hughes. While
some 30 percent of WHS
students are not performing
on their grade level in math,
61 percent are below-grade
level in reading.
Previous approaches to
reading in some schools led
to separating lower perform-
ing and higher-performing
readers. The result was that
lower-level readers never
had an opportunity to watch
and learn from higher-level
-readers. State law now re-
quires lower-performing
readers to take "intensive
reading" classes. Further,
all teachers are now respon-
sible for reading, so high-
level readers can now be
seen at work in all classes.
WHS has a new media spe-
cialist, and the school li-
brary is open later hours on
Friday nights.
The recently-instituted
dress code has not presented
any problems, says Hughes.
"It's going well. We needed
to make sure everything
was going to be enforced."


The students have adjusted
to it, and "not a parent has
called" to protest. Hughes
believes that the code has
had a beneficial effect on
behavior. "It's become more
school business than style."
A recent national report
has targeted Florida schools
- and schools in other states
as well as being "dropout
factories." Hughes says he
is studying the national
data, and has implemented
a pledge program at WHS.
The program entails stu-
dents signing a promise to
stay in school until gradua-
tion. Upon signing, students
get a card and pendant indi-
cating their commitment to
graduate. Hughes says that

the class of 2008 will be the
largest in recent years.
WHS can also boast of
having a student with the
highest GPA and ACT score
in the area. Frances Green of

their time and expenses pro-
vided investigating the clock
repairs.
DeFuniak Springs Fire
Chief Brian Coley requested
authorization to purchase
a portable extinguisher
simulator system. The in-
telligent design system will
cost $4,990. Coley told the
Council, "We have people
all the time that come by
and ask for us to show them
how to use their fire extin-
guishers. This system has
a kill switch and is much
safer than the old method.
We can take this, as well,
to give groups in-services to
teach them how to use their
fire equipment in offices and
that service is offered free of
charge to our local compa-
nies." The council approved
the request 5-0.
City Marshall Mike Ad-
kinson then requested the
Council award recommen-
dation for bids on two new
city police vehicles, as well
as taser equipment. The
cost of the two new vehicles
totaled $37,792 and were in-
cluded in the city's approved
budget. The cost of the taser
equipment was $6,975. The
equipment needs to be re-
placed about every two years,
according to Adkinson. "The
problem is the switches are
made out of plastic and it
cost almost as much to get
them repaired as it does to
buy new." The new tasers
have a video, component to
record any incident of use
and a long-term service war-
ranty was included in the
bid. According to Adkinson,
"This will help us stay clear
of disputes with the video,
as well as keep them in good
shape. Since they will be


covered under an extended
warranty, it should save us
money in the long run." The
Council approved the three
bids 5-0 for a total amount
of $44,767.
The Council then moved
on to two requests to approve
joint participation agree-
ments with the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
(FDOT). The first request
concerns a purchase of land
to extend the airport runway
another 900 feet. FDOT will
pay for the majority of the
estimated $120,000, with
the city being responsible
for $24,000 of that funding.
The second request covers
a $200,000 roadside grant
for beautification of area
along U.S. 90 and U.S. 331.
No matching funds are re-
quired, but maintenance of
improved areas will now fall
to the city with the agree-
ment. The Council approved
both request unanimously.
The Council also ap-
proved unanimously a work
authorization for $4,590 to
URS corporation for a study
on a conceptual road align-
ment that would connect
Bob Sikes Road to the air-
port facility in the future.
The Council then voted
unanimously to extend the
city's contract for mosquito
control services. By extend-
ing the contract now, City
Manager Kim Kirby told the
Council, they would be able
to lock in a fixed-rate the
next three years.
The council also agreed
to cancel the regularly-
scheduled meeting for Dec.
24, 2007 and to reschedule
at another time before call-
ing the meeting to adjourn-
ment.

cipient until she attended
the conference.
"I am proud and honored
to receive this recognition,"
said Marlow, "but I see this
as an award for the entire

SimpleShot inventor Bertron receives History Channel honors


By CHRIS MANSON
Kim Bertron, a Tallahas-
,see consultant and part-time
baker, was recently selected
as a finalist in the 2007 Mod-
ern Marvels Invent .Now
Challenge, sponsored by The
History Channel and the
National Inventors Hall of
Fame. Bertron's invention,
the SimpleShot syringe, was
developed with the help of
longtime friend Wiley Hor-
ton, a patent lawyer, and


WILEY HORTON


North Carolina-based engi-
neer Brian Boothe.
The SimpleShot is a sy-
ringe with two chambers.
The lower chamber is filled
with powder, the upper with
a diluting solution. Ber-
tron said her device offers
"a seamless, intuitive ap-
proach" to mixing reconsti-
tuted drugs like the gluca-
gon used by Type 1 diabetes
patients. It would also re-
duce the risk of needle con-
tamination and inaccurate
dosage levels.
The SimpleShot allows
reconstituted drugs to be
administered expeditiously.
Bertron came up with the
idea six years ago when her
daughter suffered a Type 1
diabetic seizure. In her rush
to mix the life-saving dose of
glucagon, Bertron broke the
syringe needle.
"I thought parents of chil-
dren with Type 1 diabetes.
needed something simple,"
said Bertron. After five years
of trial and error, Boothe
and Horton devised a way to


get the powder and solution
into a single syringe.
Bertron said the Simple-
Shot will also benefit those
who depend on other recon-
stituted medications like
human growth hormone and
hemophilia drugs. But first,
the device must be tested.

Despite only a handful

handout displays a montage
of candy-flavored cigarettes,
smokeless tobacco products,
and "blunt wraps."
"We're trying to get the
message out that the indus-
try is still trying to target
kids," said Arnold. "Most
people aren't going to start
smoking at 45 years of age.
They'll start when they're
young, and the (tobacco
companies) will try to hook
them for life."
"I've seen the effects to-
bacco has on people," said
Catherine Trotman, secre-
Stary of the Freeport SWAT
chapter. "My aunt and uncle
a are smokers, and I wouldn't
ts want that to happen to any-
one else I know."
Freeport student Bill Av-
ery said he just wanted to
be a part of the effort to stop
teen smoking.
Amberley Thompson, one
of 15 students in Florida
serving on the SWAT ex-
ecutive board, will attend a-
meeting in Tallahassee next
January to discuss what the
group will take on next.

Arnold attributed the low
4 public turnout for this year's
event to cold and windy
weather. However, the less
than desirable conditions
' did not dissuade the SWAT
volunteers from reaching
7 out to passing motorists on
o Walton Road through street
marketing tactics.

Dear Auntie Em,


I'm having a tough time
right now. My sibling
passed away earlier this
year and we had been very
close. This will be our
family's first holiday
without them. I don't
know how I am going to
cope. Please help, if you
can.
- Devastated in Daleville,
(Name and Address

Dear Devastated,
I'm so sorry for your
loss. The holidays remind
us of all we have to be
thankful for, but when you
have lost someone you
love and are close to, it
hard to be grateful for
anything.
People are going to tell
you things. They are going
to say it'll be okay and
that person is in a better
place. They may be right
and their heart is in the
right place, but let's be
honest, time does heal, but
in different degrees
according to the depth of
different wounds. It's also


Ask

Auntie Em



okay to mourn. Take your
time and grieve as much
for your loved one as you
need. There has been a
trend lately for people to
move on from their grief
quickly, but I believe one-
should take as much time
as needed and let the
wounds heal naturally and
over time.
Remember your loved
one through sharing
stories with your family
and maybe writing out
your feelings in a journal.
Remember, they are still
with you in spirit. You
should take the holidays
as a chance to celebrate
their life and the life you
shared with them. But
above all, don't be afraid
to feel whatever it is you
are feeling at the moment.
You are in my heart and
prayers. Remember, those
we love live on through us
and our memories.

BILL CHAPMAN, DeFuniak Springs Rotary Club presi-
dent, thanking Chris Mitchell, president of the Florida Chau-
tauqua Center's 13th annua Assembly.

Mitchfffspeaks to Rotary Club


Chris Mitchell, president of
the Florida Chautauqua
Center's 13th annual Assem-
bly, recently spoke to the De-
Funiak Springs Rotary Club.
The Assembly is scheduled to
run from Jan.31 through Feb.
3, and the theme is "A Jour-
ney Into The American Presi-
dency."
Mitchell, a former aide to
president Jimmy Carter and
later an award- winning
news journalist, told his au-
dience that the public does
not get the full story from the
media. He used the case of
Terry Schiavo in the right-to-
life controversy as an ex-
ample. While covering that
story, Mitchell became
friends with her brother,
Bobby Schindler, who will be
the first keynote speaker of
the Assembly.
Mitchell spoke of the As-
sembly as a place to get both
sides of a story such as views
on the environment. Jim

Fowler, former host of Mu-
tual of Omaha's Wild King-
dom, will give the keynote
address on Saturday con-
cerning preservation and the
politics involved in environ-
mental concerns.
There will be 50 sessions
during the Assembly and
each day will begin with a
keynote speaker.
Special events include a
"Hall of Presidents" (a stu-
dent museum at the Commu-
nity Center) and a Victorian
Tea with President and Mrs.
Lincoln doing monologues.
Live performances will be
held on the first three nights
and will include the popular
Sawmill Band, the NW
Florida Symphony Orchestra
Chamber Concert and the
group, Henri's Notion.

America
gives Thanks

All across America
folks are bowing their
heads to pray.
They're giving praise.
to the Lord for
blessings He
sent their way.
For Autumn leaves red
and gold, and harvest.
that's finally done,
for shocks of grain and
bales of hay standing
under a hazy sun.
For gentle rain on the
sill, and the sound of
geese in the air.
For faded earth and
heavy skies,
God's blessings are
everywhere.
For home, friends and
family, along with
children to love,
they'll be gathering
together giving thanks
to God above.
For turkey stuffed
with dressing and
Mama's
homemade bread,
for pumpkin pie
and cranberries,
many prayers
will be said.
From the mountains
to the ocean,
and sycamores
standing tall,
America gives thanks
to God,
for His many blessings
and all!

The 2007 Annual Tour of
Homes in DeFuniak Springs
is set for Saturday, Dec. 1,
from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tick-
ets and map are available
the day of the tour from 8
a.m.-3 p.m. at the DeFuniak
Springs Visitors Center on
Circle Drive and the Big
Store on Baldwin Avenue.
Tickets are: Adults, $18.75
+tax, babes in arms free, chil-
dren 12 and under $7.50 +
tax. The tour is sponsored by
Partners in Progress.
None of the eight homes on
this year's tour appeared last
year. This year's homes are:
THE KNOX GILLIS
HOUSE, 772 Circle Drive
(circa 1902). This inagnifi-
cent, stately Classical Re-
vival-style house is making
its first tour appearance. Af-
ter having had several own-
ers and suffering the ravages
of time, the old house got
lucky when the McDonald
sisters purchased it in 1989.
With their elegant tastes and
love and respect for the
house itself, the sisters have
given this grande dame back
the dignity it so rightly de-
serves. It shines once again
as a splendid home on Circle
Drive.
WILDWOOD, 34 East
Main Avenue (circa 1890).
Making its second tour ap-
pearance, but with new own-
ers, Wildwood holds the dis-
tinction of having views of
both Lake DeFuniak and the
L&N Railroad Line, the lat-
ter having only recently
made its way across north-
west Florida when the house
was built. This old home is
truly impressive with its six
fireplaces, four bathrooms,
and mother-in-law suite. The
current owners' eclectic fur-
nishings add yet another in-
teresting chapter to
Wildwood's intriguing his-
toric journey.
150 LAKESIDE DRIVE,
Pine Shores subdivision.
Touring this majestic con-
temporary Greek Revival
home with its elegant fur-
nishings is always special.
Indeed, the home holds sur-
prises any time one visits -
its seems the owners are con-
stantly redecorating or redo-
ing floors. This home projects
a warmth and friendliness
that makes everyone feel
comfortable and at home.
Please note: Santa Claus will
be greeting everyone during
the afternoon and promises
to get both young and old in

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2007 PAGE 5-B

, Movie Review



Incurable passion: "Love in the Time of Cholera"


By BRUCE COLLIER
Director Mike Newell's
"Love in the Time of Chol-
era" bears impressive liter-
ary credentials. It's based on
,,a novel by Nobel laureate
Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
and adapted for the screen
:|by Oscar-winner Ronald
A Harwood. Newell himself is
no novice at romantic films,
^ having helmed "Enchanted
April," "The Mona Lisa
'; Smile," and "Four Weddings
and a Funeral," among oth-
ers. The biggest names in the
< film to American moviego-
Sers would likely be Ben-
'^jamin Bratt, Hector
Elizondo, and John
Leguizamo. The rest of the
'cast is made up of South
American and Italian actors,
all of who speak excellent
English, with discreetly ge-
,.neric Hispanic accents.
I have not read the novel,
or any of Garcia Marquez's
books, so I cannot say how
successfully Harwood has
adapted the work. The film
takes its time, which is only


fitting, since it covers some
50 years in the lives of its
characters. Set in the Colom-
bian city of Cartagena, the
story begins in the late 19th
century and ends in the
early 20th, judging from the
cars and fashions. It's a tale
of love, the kind that just
won't go away.
Florentino Ariza (Javier
Bardem) works at a tele-
graph office, a respectable
but humble position in class-
conscious Colombia.
Florentino suffers a jolt of
love at first sight in the form
of Fermina Urbino
(Giovanna Mezzogiorno).
Fermina is equally smitten,
but the couple's marital
plans are scotched by
Fermina's father Lorenzo
(John Leguizamo). Lorenzo
is a rising businessman, new
in town, determined to make
a favorable match for his
daughter. He orders
Florentino to take a hike,
then sends Fermina off to
the country to get over her
passion.


She does. Florentino is lit-
erally sick with heartbreak.
Meantime, Fermina accepts
an arranged marriage with
the handsome and cultivated
Juvenal Urbino (Benjamin
Bratt), a doctor who has been
fighting the city's recurring
cholera problem. They head
off to Paris, leaving
Florentino to digest his grief.
He doesn't. After a lot of
moping, he takes a position
in his uncle's business,
screws that up, then finds
work as a scribe, writing let-
ters and other documents
from an office in the town
marketplace. His vow to love
only Fermina holds firm, but
doesn't get in the way of an
endless series of romantic
encounters. Some are mo-
mentary, some last a few
weeks, all are meaningless.
Like Casanova, Florentino
chronicles them in a journal,
in which he writes names,
numbers, and concise de-
scriptions. As time goes by,
the tally rises into the 600s.
All the while, he suffers ex-


quisitely, seeing Fermina and
Juvenal in the streets, at so-
cial occasions, and even
speaking occasionally to
them. He succeeds in near-
complete self-effacement.
"He's not a man, he's a
shadow," Fermina tells a
friend. However, Florentino
isn't just lurking around and
chasing skirt. He returns to
work for his uncle's riverboat
shipping company, rising to
the number-two position. In
time, he succeeds to director-
ship of the line, with all the
financial and social advan-
tages that come with it. So-
cially, he now has parity with
his beloved. However, she still
has a husband.
As said before, the film
moves slowly, following the
principal characters through
their lives as leisurely as the
flow of the river that connects
them to the rest of the world.
The old die, babies arrive and
grow up, Cartagena
progresses, Fermina and
Juvenal grow apart. There's
nothing terribly earth-shak-


ing here, no natural disas-
ters or wars. Even the titu-
lar disease gets relatively
little screen time. As much as
anything, time itself resolves
the story.
This is a grown-up film for
grown-ups. Not so much for
strong language or nudity
(there's little of the first, a bit
more of the second). The ma-
ture appeal lies in the rela-
tionships father and daugh-
ter, mother and son, sisters,
uncles and nephews, masters
and servants. Holding it all
together is Bardem, as
Florentino;
I'd not seen any of this
actor's work before. He has
the same kind of instant hu-
man appeal one sees in silent
movie clowns like Charlie
Chaplin (who he resembles
a little) or Buster Keaton,
that same baggy doggedness.
Florentino takes and absorbs
disappointment after disap-
pointment, drooping further
with every year. "To die for
love" is the best way of fates,
he proclaims passionately as


a young man. Years later, he
accounts for his appeal to
women by saying they feel
"safe" with him.
Other good performances
come from Bratt whose
Juvenal looks like a Latino
Clark Gable, Leguizamo as
the feisty, self-made Lorenzo,
Hector Elizondo as
Florentino's uncle, Don Leo,
and Mezzogiorno as Fermina.
Both she and Bardem have to
age 50 years with the story.
Sometimes the makeup is
very evident more like stage
makeup and sometimes it's
pretty astonishing. I said
there was some nudity. It's not
just the youngsters who strip
down. I'll leave it at that.
"Love in the Time of Chol-
era" will probably not excite
you, or frighten you, or induce
"Titanic"-class weeping. It's
wistful, sentimental, roman-
tic in an Old World way, and
it made me want to check out
some of Garcia Marquez's sto-
ries and novels. That's enough
of an accomplishment for any
film these days.

'" newspaper subscriber commented: Since reading that
report, I've made a conscious effort to recall my blessings
nearly every hour. Instead of dreading the drudgery of clean-
ing house, I express gratitude for my home. I've found so
many things to be grateful for, little things like running water
and electricity A few weeks ago, I complained because my
knees ached; now I say how gratefuld I am that I can walk. I
think it's important to express our gratitude out loud. The
positive focus on gratitude has pushed out of my mind the
negative thoughts that were dragging me down."

Thanksgiving
Everyday should be a day of Thanksgiving.
Thank God for all things and for God you should be living:

For your bounty to God give thanks and be proud,
Everything belongs to God and to use we are allowed;

Thank you Lord for this world and all creation,
Thank you Lord for blessing me and this nation;

Thanks God for this country in which we live,
Be pleased for the life He did freely give;

Thank you God for the Holy Spirit and the Word,
Thank you Jesus for all the promises that were heard;

Be thankful for the pilgrims that the oceans they did cross,
A new world was discovered, the old at a loss;

This day of Thanksgiving is very special to me,
A time to thank God for all He created to see;

A time to thank Him for all you are allowed to do,
A time to thank for each day He gets you through;

Thank you God for Jesus a sacrifice for our sin,
Jesus Christ died on the cross and the Church did begin;

Thank you Jesus that You have gone to prepare a place,
We look forward to that time we see Your face.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2007


Some thoughts on Thanksgiving

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


We are at a memory spot
of the year as we pause to
observe our day of Thanks-
giving. It may, be accompa-
nied with many vows of
gratefulness, both sincere,
and maybe some that are
practical. In Psalm 116:1, the
writer said, "What shall I
render unto the Lord for all
His benefits toward me?
In order to know the grati-
tude which David showed,
we need only to recall our
mercies, for they are many.
Have you ever stopped to re-
call any of them, or tried to
count them? It is perhaps
easier to count the bad


things than the good that has
happened. Count your bless-
ings at this Thanksgiving
season. Think of them, and
then "thank."
But again, consider the fact
that, like David, we ought to
make our thanksgiving prac-
tical. David's thanksgiving
did not end in words. '"What
shall I render unto the Lord?
Then as we read the remain-
der of this Psalm, we see his
resolve as to what returns he
will make. He wrote, "I will
take the cup of salvation and
call upon the name of the
Lord." Verse 17 reads in part,
"I will offer to Thee the sac-


rifice of thanksgiving." The
truly thankful heart will not
be satisfied with offering to
God that which cost nothing.
Be thankfully generous.
Giving thanks to God for
His mercies is always a
beautiful thing to do. Espe-
cially at this period of na-
tional Thanksgiving, we
ought to stir ourselves all the
more to really thank God for
all His mercies.
Not only should we thank
God because He is the giver
of our blessings, but we have
an additional reason be-
cause of the great abundance
of them. The very abundance


of God's mercies and blessing
should make us grateful. How
many are His gracious
thoughts toward us? If I could
count them, God has given
more than the sands of the
sea!

20 touchdowns rushing in
the same season.
However, Tebow was not
the only Florida player that

Bobby wins 300th game



with win over Terpins


By CHUCK HINSON
It might have been Bobby's
day, but it was FSU's "new
kid on the block," Preston
Parker, that thrilled fans as
the Seminoles beat Mary-
land, 24-16.

Parker ran for 133 yards
and a touchdown, bringing
victory to a Seminole team
that has been battered over
the past two weeks. He also
took the place of three tail-


backs that were out for the
game and made everyone
realize there was a new kid
on the field.

With three tailbacks out,
Parker was made an instant
receiver and became an in-
stant hero for the 'Noles. He
carried the ball 20 times for
FSU, caught a pass for 21
yards, and returned four
punts for more than 40
yards, totaling 194 all-pur-


pose yards for the game.

FSU quarterback Drew
Weatherford, recovered
from a concussion he suf-
fered during the Virginia
Tech game, was out on the
field and looked to be on his
game. He threw for a touch-
down, totaled 204 yards and
added a 1-yard touchdown
that he had capitalized on
from Patrick Robinson's
sixth interception for the


season.
Florida State (7-4, 4-4)
needed the win to remain
in bowl eligibility and keep
alive their 31st consecutive
winning season, Maryland
needs a win next weekend
at North Carolina just to be
bowl eligible.

The Seminoles prepare for
their final regular season
game against intrastate ri-
val, Florida, this Saturday.

Louisiana-Monroe thumps Bama


By CHUCK HINSON
First came the loss of No.
2 Oregon, then the loss of
No. 4 Oklahoma, but losing
to the Warhawks was the
shock of the South for Ala-
bama fans. Not only were
the Alabama fans stunned.
over the unanticipated loss
to the Warhawks, Saban
was left holding the cards
and the bag of used surpris-
es the Louisiana-Monroe
team left on the field in Tus-
caloosa.
The Warhawks took home
the 21-14 victory and left
Alabama fans and alumni
wondering if they made the


right choice by spending $4
million a year on Nick Sa-
ban.

The Tide was a 24 1/2
point favorite over the visit-
ing team and was not even
really concentrating on the
team, due to their intrastate
rivalry match-up against
Auburn later that weekend.
That proved to be an unfor-
tunate lapse.
Louisiana-Monroe's
Quintez Secka picked off
two interceptions and forced
four turnovers. He blocked
a field goal and turned
away Alabama (6-5) three


times on drives toward the
end zone. It gave Alabama
their third-straight loss of
the season.
The win was Louisiana-
Monroe's first win over an
SEC team since they beat
Mississippi State in 1995
and only their third victory
in 33 attempts against an
SEC team. Their new re-
cord is 3-29-1. The Sun Belt
Conference had been 0-11
against the SEC this entire
season.

Alabama had reigned
supreme against Sun Belt
teams until this past Satur-


day night. The packed house
of more than 92,000 fans did
little to weaken the physi-
cal or mental strength of the.
Louisiana-Monroe team.
Calvin Ddwson rushed
33 times for 91 yards and
a touchdown for the War-
hawks. Quarterback Kins-
mon Lancaster passed for
161 yards. But it was Secka
who turned the game to
Louisiana-Monroe's favor
with a 38-yard interception
return to the Tide's 1-yard
line. Dawson went over the
plane for the score and the
game went south for Ala-
bama fans.

Oregon's latest team to hit the skids


By CHUCK HINSON
If you reach the No. 1 or
No. 2 spot in the nation in
college, just be sure to wear
your pillow pants because
those top two rubber seats
are sure to bounce you out.

The Oregon Ducks are the
latest to feel the pain of de-


feat and the sadness of slip-
ping as they lost to Arizona,
24-34 and ended their hopes
of a national 'championship
game that would be more
than likely against LSU.

It was the first time that
a team ranked that high,
came into Tucson and lost to


the Arizona Wildcats since
No. 1-ranked Washington
was upset there on Nov. 7,
1992.
It is the seventh time
this season that, a second-
ranked team has fallen to a
non-ranked team. The No. 1
spots have also been bumped
with teams like Ohio State,


USC and LSU.
Arizona never let up from
the time they hit the field
until they rushed the field at
the conclusion of the game.
The biggest scoring quarter,
for the Wildcats came in
the second half when they
racked up 21 points.
The second half belonged


to Oregon, who despite had
to have back-up quarter-
back Brady Leaf, did out-
score Arizona in the second
half, 10-3.

Leaf completed 22 of 46
passes for 163 yards. Dixon,
who was replaced as the Or-
eg6n starting quarterback


due to a first quarter, rest-
of the- season injury, was 5
for 8 for 62'.yards and one
interception.

Arizona quarterback Wil-
lie Tuitama completed 21 of
39 passes for 266 yards and
twca touchdowns, but had'
one interception.'

Bad news for Bonds


By CHUCK HINSON
Just after the announce-
ment by the Professional
Golfing Association and
their anti-doping campaign
that will begin in June of
2008, the professional base-
ball association is making a
call of their own. This time
it is the possible prison sen-
tence for home run king,
Barry Bonds.
Last Thursday afternoon
in San Francisco, Bonds was


found guilty and indicted on
perjury and obstruction of
justice. With the latest rul-
ing and conviction by the
court, he could be facing
jail time since he did not
voluntarily tell the federal
grand jury that he did not
knowingly use performance-
enhancing drugs, when he
did.
The indictment has cul-
minated after a four-year
investigation into steroid


use by professional athletes.
The court charged Bonds
with four counts of perjury
and one of obstruction of
justice.
If he does get the gavel
dropped against him he
could face up to 30 years
behind bars in a California
state prison.
The 10-page indictment
mainly consists of excerpts
from Bonds' December 2003
testimony before a federal


grand jury investigating the
Bay Area supplements lab
at the center of the steroid
and performance-enhancing
controversy. It cites 19 dif-
ferent occasions in which
Bonds allegedly lied under
oath to the court.
In August, Bonds passed
Hank Aaron to the become
the career home run leader
in the game. The latest in-
dictments and court ruling
will have no effect on the

Customary use

ordinance

concept draws fire


By DOTTY NIST
Opposition to the concept
of an ordinance addressing
customary use of the beach
in Walton County has sur-
faced, even before creation
of the ordinance has been
initiated .
On Oct. 9, The Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) had
discussed such an ordinance
as one of four options for
addressing beach use con-
flicts.
On Nov. 13, accounts on
what their decision had been
on that date, with regard to
the four options presented
by their attorney, differed
during the commission's dis-
cussion.
"The county should not
adopt an ordinance that
takes sides," asserted local
attorney Matthew Burns,
representing beachfront
property owners primarily
located on the east end of
the county. ,
Burns maintained that
"not one inch" of case law
exists that would support
the public's right to use of
the beach in Walton County
based on customary use.
He added that his clients
would ,view such an ordi-
nance as a "taking" of their
property without compensa-
tion. Adopting the ordinance
would provoke lawsuits,
contrary to wise public pol-
icy, he argued.
Burns suggested that,
instead of proceeding with
such an ordinance, the coun-
ty leave the matter of beach
use rights to be settled be-
tween individual property
owners and persons request-
ing beach access.
He added that he plans


to present a proposition
for the consideration of the
commissioners, whereby a
commitment to the private
property rights of beach-
front property owners in the
county would be recognized,
a commitment which he de-
scribed as "long-standing"
and having "built Walton
County up."

"The coun- t
tv should not
adopt an or-
dinance that
takes sides," as-
serted local attorney t.
Matthew Burns.


Burns also requested that
the commissioners recon-
sider an Oct. 9 directive to
their attorney in connection
with a customary beach use
ordinance, a step he warned
could result in a taking of
property.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows responded
that she recalled the BCC's
decision on Oct. 9 to be only
to have their attorney "look
at our options," and "bring
back information."
Meadows stated that the
account of the Oct. 9 BCC
decision in the newspaper
had been incorrect. She did
not specify which newspa-
per. She also referenced an
incorrect newspaper edito-
rial regarding the matter,
again not specifying the
publication.

circle. Martin Anthony Sull-
van, an all-American looking
kid and a drama student at
South Walton High School
(SWHS) watched the prayer
group from where he sat
alone in front of the school.
"I believe people should be
able to protest. It's their
right and my right if I don't
agree with something," he
said. The group got louder.
The leader a well-
dressed, silver-haired wom-


an continued to lead the
group and spoke to the cir-
cle and to the rolling news
cameras, "This is about
abortion and school prayer
and putting God back into
our schools and it changes
tonight with stopping this
play." The crowd grew a lit-
tle louder.
Sullvan spoke a little
louder too and his smile
widened, "You can hear
what they're saying, but

about the play. This is not
about us.",

Consensus lacking on north-of-bay height limit


By DOTTY NIST
"There's a lot of moving
parts to this," said Scott
Brannon, Walton County
District 1 commissioner.
A proposed ordinance to
extend the 50-foot height
limit, now existing for new
construction south of Choc-
tawhatchee Bay, to the
whole of Walton County,
got a mixed reception at the
first of two required public
readings on Nov. 13.


"The magic number may
not be 50 feet," District 4
Commissioner Larry Jones
observed.
The idea, he continued,
is not to have skyscrapers
on the Bay and other water-
front areas.
"Let's put this plan to-
gether where it can work,"
urged County Commission
Chairman Ken Pridgen. He
recommended looking at
building heights that would


be appropriate for different
communities in the county.
A similar ordinance had
been proposed in 2006, when
the Walton County Plan-
ning Commission voted 6-0
to recommend against adop-
tion of the ordinance, and it
was subsequently tabled for
more study. Recently that
board again voted unani-
mously against adoption
of the currently proposed
height ordinance.


Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
'services director, noted that
the planning commission-.
ers had advocated allowing
varying heights in different
areas of the county.
Jones suggested going
ahead with adoption of the
50-foot countywide limit,
with a sunset provision at-
tached. That would allow
time for the county to look
at areas where it would


make sense to be able to
build higher, he explained.:

plete although certified by an engineer as in place, Mead-
ows proposed suspending issuance of building permits in
Driftwood Estates phases 2B and 2C until such time as

SWTDC holds third annual



Environmental Forum


By JEFFREY POWELL
"This gathering is not just
about talking," said Environ-
mental Forum Chair Randy
Harelson. "This forum is
about working toward the
single goal of improving the
environment throughout
Walton County."
Harelson's comments
came during the third an-
nual Environmental Forum,
sponsored by the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council (SWTDC). The fo-
rum was held on Friday,
November 16, at the Hilton
Sandestin Beach Golf Resort
and Spa and was attended
by upwards of 80 citizens.
The event was created by
the SWTDC Nature Based
Tourism Committee to give
established environmental.
groups and organizations
the opportunity to discuss
and work together for the
overall ecological benefit of


Walton County.
Over 30 speakers were
given a brief time slot in
which to present attend-
ees with information about
their group's efforts toward
.improving the environment.
"The SWTDC is very ex-
cited to facilitate a gather-
ing of the various environ-
mental entities that work
toward the sustainability of
Walton County ," said SWT-
DC New Product Devel-
opment Manager Tiffany
McCaskill. "Only positive
results can come from this
forum."
District five Walton
County Commissioner Cin-
dy Meadows gave a brief
outline of the work that has
been done at Cessna Park in
Santa Rosa Beach, as well
as her intent to see the con-
nectivity of more bike trails
throughout the area.

NEW 'PRIVATE BEACH'signs continue to go up in Wal-
ton County, with more beachfront property owners now pub-
licly claiming exclusive access to the part of the beach used
for sitting and sunbathing. The sign pictured is located on
the west end of the county where public funds were used to
pump sand onto the beach in a large-scale restoration proj-
ect. An attorney representing property owners located pri-
marily on the unrestored east end of the county recently ad-
dressed county commissioners, urging against the creation
of an ordinance addressing the public's rights to use the
beach.

that there should be some
exceptions but that those
"would need to very well de-
lineated."
Blackshear commented
that this would be a plan
that would protect the pub-
lic's view of the Bay, rivers,
and lakes from being blocked
by high rises-and ,would
give the county a handle
on heights before dozens of
proposals for tall buildings
were submitted.
Mike Burke, county legal
counsel, commented ironi-
cally that it would make "a
lot of sense" to apply the
sunset provision and that
therefore it was "probably
not legal."
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows remarked
that the 50-foot height lim-
it has "made us what we
are today" in south Walton
County. It was her opinion
that it "it should be left up to
the citizens and developers"
north of the Bay to reach
consensus on "how they
want their area to grow."
She called Jones' proposal
"a moratorium on buildings
over 50 feet.
"I couldn't support that,"
she said.
Several Choctaw Beach
residents also spoke against


the proposed height limit.,
"It is going to be very bad
for this county," said Ed
Bradley.
"You'll be known as the
midget county," he told the
commissioners.
Bradley and other prop-
erty owners warned that
they would view a limit on
height as a "taking" of their,
private property rights with-
out compensation.
Blackshear suggested get-
ting input on height north of
the Bay through some of the
upcoming public meetings
related to planning process
for the county's evaluation
and appraisal report (EAR.)
The EAR is a measure of the
county's growth manage-
ment documents' success in
meeting the goals of citizens
and property owners.
"It's important to bring
this inclusionary planning
process in," remarked Wal-
ton County resident and
local attorney Dana Mat-
thews.
Matthews added that a
185-percent growth rate has
been projected for the city of
Freeport. He warned that
with the proposed height
limit and growth of that
magnitude, "you're going to
cover up all your dirt.


reported tha., the commis-.
sioners voted to have Mike
Burke, county legal counsel,
"move forward with looking
at" two of the four .options
presented by Burke, plus
begin drafting a customary
beach use ordinance.
The two options had been
identified as seeking from
property owners voluntary
easements for public ac-
cess across the soft, sandy
portion of the beach, in ex-
change for tax relief; and
adopting an ordinance de-
fining the customary use of
the soft, sandy beach, the
portion used by beachgoers
for sitting and sunbathing.
Burke recalled that his
understanding of the Oct.


"This thing needs a lot of
work...I'm not saying that
height is good or bad, it's a
planning tool," Matthews
concluded.
In contrast, Walton
County citizen Hugh Marse
called the height limit south
of the Bay "a great success"
and supported extending it
countywide. Marse argued
that south Walton County
has grown and prospered
with the height limit and
that property values have
soared.

matter of firefighting- capa-

-

THIS GROUP of citizens
formed a prayer circle out-
side the school to protest
"abortion and school prayer
and putting God back into
i .._our schools and it changes
.. tonight with stopping this
play."


SWHS Principal Mark Ewing said the play could not be
performed without significant changes.


SPIRIT FROM FRONT


the two-hour meeting, held
in the SWHS auditorium.
Mark Davis, chairman of
the Walton County School
Board, called the meeting
to order and advised the at-
tendees that outbursts were
unacceptable and people who
could not behave would be
removed by a Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs deputy that was
stationed in the auditorium.
Davis said, "This is a school
function and we should con-
duct ourselves like adults.
We want to hear from both
sides and will render a care-
ful decision from what we
hear tonight."
Cathy Hall, coordinator of
special programs and servic-
es, spoke first on the request
of Davis about the Sunshine
laws pertaining to curricu-
lum for the state. Hall said,
"When the district commit-
tee met, we looked at the
historical context in which
Noel Coward wrote the play.
We also found, in the re-
viewing of the play, that the
instances of profanity in the
play are typical of language
used in 1940, as well as alco-
hol used by the characters.
We then reviewed the Sun-
shine laws regarding cur-
riculum. This play is sup-
ported by those standards
for students to understand
timni periods and histori-
cal accuracy in the revised
rules we have regarding
curriculum where themes,
standard plots, metaphors,
illusion and imagery must
be understood. A variety of
typical classic literary works
must be taught. There are
multiple numbers of high
schools around the country
producing this work that we
discovered researching the
play on the Internet."
Hall went on to say that
many of the schools they had
spoken with had altered the
play in small ways for the
comfort and age of the ac-
tors involved, but never met
with resistance in the ac-
tual production of the play.
Hall also said that none of
the schools she spoke with
had asked the publisher of
the play, Samuel French,
for permission to omit or re-
place words in the play, that
the 'schools had done this
themselves. Hall contacted
French, who requested she
send her request in an e-
mail. She had not yet heard
a response. "It was a unani-,
mous decision of the appeal
committee to keep this play,
but we cannot recommend
the play be changed without
permission from the pub-
lisher."
Davis then called for any-
one who wanted to speak
against the committee's de-
cision to approach the po-
dium.
Jake Lehman, the citizen
who filed the appeal, was
the first to speak. Lehman
told the board, "Our school
district's mission is to make
decisions in the best inter-
est of the children. And that
is why I first brought this up
to Mr. Ewing. I didn't think
it was in the best interest
of the children. As parents,
as taxpaying citizens, we
elected you to represent us
in the school district. When
you ran for election, many of
you appeared in our church-
es and you made certain
claims and you will be held
to those standards. We do
not believe that the mate-
rial is suitable for the age
and maturity level of the
students. I'm also concerned
about the drama teacher's


choices for these kids. It's my
opinion that he is using his
position to superimpose his
beliefs on these kids, espe-
cially after the first appeal.
He presented another play
called, 'Any Number Can
Die,' that was laced with a
voodoo theme. The principal
advised him to pick some-
thing more neutral and they
picked 'Harvey,' which is
an excellent play. It's mor-
ally uplifting and promotes
something positive. The
other two plays could open
our kids up to something not
positive."
Jennifer Vest, mother to
student Hillary Vest, who
had originally auditioned for
the role of the dead wife but
was cast in the role of the
fake medium and withdrew
for "belief reasons," said her
daughter had been a vic-
tim and not an instigator in
the drama surrounding the
play. "That was when the
witch hunt began and I was
here when my daughter per-
formed in two productions
here, including 'Beauty and
the Beast' last year. The
kids are very talented, but
.we want to see them per-
form positive productions
and not something that may
open the gateway to dark-
ness.' I ask for the board
to give the same political
correctness as a Christian
to not do this play on this
stage as you would give to
someone who.didn't wvant to
say, 'one nation under God'
in the Pledge of Allegiance."
Lehman, a father and
aspiring author about his
experience with a cult, told
the board that he was from
Fort Walton Beach and his
son attends Fort Walton
Beach High school. "My feel-
ing is there is high spiritual
turf wars going on in this
area and if you don't stop
this play, you are basically
saying you don't believe in
God's word, so you need to
go home and open your Bi-
ble." he said.
"This is a demonic ac-
tivity that is reaching and
spreading through our
schools," said Brad Odom, a
youth pastor with the Des-
tin Assembly of God. "This
kind of thing opens up doors.
Please understand that this
is nothing but a trap that
will infiltrate these schools."
Odom later admitted that
he had never read the play
he spoke against.
Odom was not alone. Af-
ter speakers called for a
show of hands against the
play and for the play. Those
against the play clearly out-
numbered those in favor of
the play. One speaker then
asked for a show of hands
to count the people that had
read the play. A very small
percentage of the people
protesting the play raised
their hands.
When it came time to
speak on behalf of perform-
ing the play, kids from the
school, their parents, and
even a local pediatrician
stood up and approached
the podium.
Russ Gilbert was the first
parent to speak, "This is a
literary classic. It's been per-
formed hundreds of times
across the county by schools
just like this one and there is
nothing a reasonable person
would find offensive about
it. I'm not going to stand
here and talk about the sep-
aration of church and state
or trying to impose my be-
lief system on someone else.
I'm not going to talk to you


about the fact that the chal-
lenge to "Blithe Spirit" has
very little to do with this
.meeting at all. It's a smoke
screen for a different politi-
cal agenda. I do want to talk
to you about the ones that
are being ignored in this is-
sue, the kids. I have two in
this system and both have
been involved in drama.
These are high school kids.
They know right from wrong
and imaginary from real. I
have just been amazed sit-
ting here and listening to
what has been said. I know
it's in the spirit of the good
of the kids. I'm really upset
though that some of these
people think they make bet-
ter parents to my kids than
my wife of 27 years and I
do. When they talk about
how this play will turn them
against God. I wonder now
how the kids feel about the
'godly' people here tonight
saying that they can't do the
play. What if. this was foot-
ball? I appreciate the people
coming out and voicing their
opinion, but this isn't about
the kids. They are using the
kids as pawns."
The vice-president of the
drama group reminded the
board that the seniors would
all be of voting age for next
year's elections and asked
how could they be trusted to
vote, but not be considered
mature enough to separate
real life from fantasy.
Jennifer Sparks, a teacher
from Freeport High School,


approached the board. She
ask, "If we take out all of
the plays or books that talk
about spirits or magic, well,
there goes a great deal of
Shakespeare's works, or 'A
Christmas Carol' or 'The
Lion, The Witch and The
Wardrobe,' a Christian clas-
sic, because it talks about
magic and witchcraft. There
is the bottom line you can
read it literally or you can
read it as it's meant to be
read."
Jenny Dargavell, parent
to a freshman at SWHS, told
the board, "We are here to
support Don [Goodrum], our
kids, and the school board,
but if we allow groups like
this to censor our kids in
the public school system
we are headed down a slip-
pery slope. The challengers
are calling this a spiritual
battle, but this is not a spiri-
tual battle. This is a school.
Spiritual battles belong in
the church, not the school. If
we ban this, what's next?"
Patrick Ferry, a pediatri-
cian, said, "It's a disservice
to the kids to narrow their
choices. We are doing them
a disservice by not allowing
them the same education as
the kids they will compete in
college and beyond. I really
believe high school juniors
and seniors can understand
that they are not wizards or
witches or mediums if they
play one in a production.
They know it's just make-
believe. I don't think there


RUSS GILBERT, a parent, advocated producing the
play. He said the protest "isn't about the kids. They are us-
ing the kids as pawns."

is any jeopardy here."
John Stratton reminded
the school board that just
a few weeks ago there had
been ghosts and witches
running amok, knocking on
doors and asking for can-
dy, "I suspect none of them
have been corrupted for life
by that experience. I think
tonight that you have the
possibility of being censors
or being against censorship.
We have young men and
women fighting right now to
preserve our rights to free
speech. Please consider the
true American spirit and
stand up for free speech."
'Mark Davis then remind-
ed the board they had the
vote on whether to uphold
the decision of the appeal
committee and keep the ma-
terial or remove the mate-
rial from the curriculum.
Darrell Barnhill, vice-
chairman, asked Principal
Mark Ewing if the reference
to alcohol and profanity were
being removed before the
challenge and was the play
planned in the future? Ew-
ing replied that the school
'sanitized' every work before
they let the kids perform it.
Ewing said he understands
both sides and was a 30-year
veteran of public education,
but wanted more. uplifting
plays for,the .students, like,
"Harvey."
Barnhill then asked if vot-
ing to remove it from the cur-
riculum would mean that all
access would be taken from
the kids to read the play. Da-
vis and staff confirmed that
a nay vote would remove all
of the material from student
access, in effect, banning
the material. Barnhill said
that removing the material
was very different than vot-
ing to have the play. "I hope
we aren't going down that
road, pulling all the mate-
rial." Davis. responded that
the idea of censorship and
banning material made him
"very uncomfortable."
William Laird said, "One
thing is for sure now, every
student's going to want to
read it now."
Sharon Roberts said that
by allowing the play, "we
are allowing Wicca or the
occult to have a place, but
not Christianity, and I don't
think it's right to let one
have a place and not the
other."
Davis said he didn't think


they were endorsing one
side over the other, "I reread
it over the weekend and, the
way it reads, it seems to ac-
tually make fun of spiritual-
ism, not promote it."
The meeting became more
tension-filled when board
member Roberts repeatedly
requested that Superin-
tendent Carlene Anderson
make a recommendation
on the subject. Anderson
remained quiet until chal-
lenged a second time.
Anderson responded that
her comments were a moot
point since she and Ewing
agreed that the play could
not be produced in Walton
County schools without an
adaptation and unless the
publisher could give permis-
sion. "To remove it or not
remove it, is somewhat of a
moot point."
Davis thanked all for at-
tending the meeting and
speaking with the board.
After asking for any other
comments, he then made a
motion to vote on the chal-
lenge. Laird seconded the
motion and Davis, Laird and
Wilkerson voted to keep the
material in.the curriculum,
over-ruling Sharon Roberts
and Darrell Barnhill's nay
votes to ban the material
From student access 9or, pro-
Sduction . ...... ..
The vote will still not al-
low the play to be produced,
accordingto Ewing and An-
derson. Published sources
have also noted that Good-
rum, who spoke before the
board but not during the
meeting on his behalf per
the board's request has had
a complaint filed against
him by Lehman. Ewing
declined to name the ag-
grieved filer or the contents
but did disclose that, "It was
a parent and this was three
weeks ago that they filed.
I'm on my way now to talk
to the kids that supposedly
gave the information to this
person, so it's a small mat-
ter."
Jennifer Steele Saunders,
Seaside Repertory manag-
ing director, spoke with the
Herald on reports that they
would be producing the play
in the new year. "We want to
first and foremost promote
the arts in our area. If the
kids cannot do the play at
the high school, then we will
provide a venue for them to
perform."

the table,
but holi-

Christmas has al-
ready overwhelmed
us all. This weekend,
Walton County has
something to offer
everyone who is
wanting to get a
jump on the holidays
has not yet been bit-
ten by the seasonal
bug.


The holiday spirit is in full
swing across the nation and
it can be found in abun-
dance here in Walton
County. This coming week-
end, activities and events
are planned that will enter-
tain, excite and motivate
anyone into the Christmas
season. From tree lightings
and markets, to open houses
and holiday movie nights,
the south and north part of
the county are ready.
In DeFuniak Springs, the
Friday following Thanks-
giving means turning on the

colored Christmas lights,
figurines, carriage rides and
holiday music. Chrsitmas
Reflections once again

lighting the tree, the oak
trees that line the lawn will
be lit at the same time.
Throughout the evening,
carolers will sing to the
crowds, there will be various
entertainment on all three
stages,and the arrival of
Santa Claus. Christmas
open houses with the town
merchants and a few other

at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 23.

On Nov. 24. both DeFu-
niak Springs and Rosemary
Beach hit the holiday fast
track and open their doors

NOTICE OF ELECTION

I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of
State of the State of Florida, do

AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)

Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS;
LIMITATIONS ON PROPERTY TAX
ASSESSMENTS

.Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to
the State Constitution relating to
property taxation. With respect to
homestead property, this revision:
(1) increases the homestead
exemption except for school district
taxes and (2) allows homestead
property owners to transfer up To
$500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes
benefits to their next homestead.
With respect to nonhomestead
property, this revision (3) provides a
$25,000 exemption for tangible
personal property and (4) limits
assessment increases for specified
nonhomestead real property except
for school district taxes.

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the
homestead exemption by
exempting the assessed value
between $50,000 and $75,000. This
exemption does not apply to school
district taxes.
(2) Provides for the
transfer of accumulated Save-Our-
Homes benefits. Homestead
property owners will be able to
transfer their Save-Our-Homes
benefit to a new homestead within 1
year and not more than 2 years
after relinquishing their previous
homestead; except, if this revision
is approved by the electors in
January of 2008 and if the new
homestead is established on
January 1, 2008, the previous
homestead must have been
relinquished in 2007. If the new
homestead has a higher just value
than the previous one, the
accumulated benefit can be
transferred.; if the new homestead
has a lower justivalue, the amount
of benefit transferred will be
reduced. The transferred benefit
may not exceed $500,000. This
provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an
exemption from property taxes of
$25,000 of assessed value of
tangible personal property. This
provision applies to all taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment
increases for specified

general law. This limitation does not
apply to school district taxes. This
limitation is repealed effective
January 1, 2019, unless renewed
by a vote of the electors in the
general election held in 2018.

Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete
language on the homestead
exemption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uniformly
to property taxes levied by all local
governments.
b. Provides for
homestead exemptions to be
repealed if a future constitutional
amendment. provides for
assessment of homesteads "at less
than just value" rather than as


currently provided "at a specified
percentage" of just value.
c. Schedules the changes
to take effect upon approval by the
electors and operate retroactively to
January 1, 2008, if approved in a
special election held on January 29,
2008, or to take effect January 1,
2009, if approved in the general
election held in November of 2008.
The limitation on annual
assessment increases for specified
real property shall first apply to the
2009 tax roll if this revision is
approved in a special election held
on January 29, 2008, or shall first
apply to the 2010 tax roll if this
revision is approved in the general
election held in November of 2008.
