THESE YOUNGSTERS know who to see about their
Christmas wish list.



Hometown Christmas,

kicks off local

shopping season
The Christmas season got off to a big start in DeFuniak
'Springs with Hometown Christmas 2007, sponsored by the
DeFuniak Business and Professional Association (DBPA)
and held at the Walton County Fairgrounds.'
Shoppers filled the fairgrounds parking lot and lined
both sides of Hwy. 83N, north and south of the building.
Estimates put the crowd at or near 5,000. DBPA president
Sara Comander said, "This was a huge success, beyond our
best hopes. In addition to local residents, people came from
all across the Panhandle and from out of state, too. We had
lots of Ge6ogiT aAnd'Alabama visitors, which I think was
due to our advertising in Dothan, Marianna, Panama City,
and Okaloosa and Escambia counties," she said. "Not only
that with almost no exception our vendors raved about

School board reaches


collective bargaining


agreement


By PATRICK CASEY '
The Walton County
School Board dealt with an
agenda that included a prop-
erty donation in the Mossy
Head area, ratification of
the collective bargaining
agreement and review of the
nature trail issue at South
Walton High School.
The school board ap-
proved the salary schedule
for instructional personnel
after reaching a collective
bargaining agreement with
the Walton County Educa-
tion Association (WCEA).
The agreement includes a
7.5 percent increase in av-
erage salary. that includes
an across-the-board $2,200
raise for all teachers, plus
the cost of the insurance
increase for the employees,
as well as a step increase
for all teachers from one to
25 years of experience. The
agreement also includes a
six-percent increase to the
supplemental salary sched-
ule. This equals $60,000
added to the supplemental
schedule. The 'estimated fi-
nancial impact is $1,895,000
for instructional costs and
$777,0ti., for education sup-
port personnel.
Walton County resident
Susan Paladini came before
the board to ask that they
honor their agreement to


, construct and maintain cer-
tain nature trails that bor-
der and connect to the South
Walton, High School cam-
pus. Paladini said that the
trails near the South Wal-
ton football field house are
not marked or concreted as
required by the settlement
between her and the school
district that was passed in
January of 2005. The board
agreed to have board attor-
ney Ben Holley and Wayne
Miller, administration and
operations supervisor, re-
view the area and issue an
opinion as to whether the
board is in compliance with
the previous agreement.
The board approved a do-
nation of 42 acres of land in
the Mossy Head area by the
Blackstone Development
Corporation in an attempt
to head off concurrency for
the impact of the develop-
ment in the Mossy Head
community. Board members
approved the donation by a
5-0 vote, with the site pos-
sibly being used for a future
high school or land swap -
assuming the development
reaches projected timetables
between 2010 and 2015 for
the second and third phases
of the project.
Several trip requests were
approved, including one for
the Walton High School Ma-


rine Science class to attend
a marine lab in Key Largo
on May 1-6, 2008. Emerald
Coast Middle School will
send their National Junior
Beta Club to the Junior Beta
Club Convention in Orlando
from December 2-4.
Former Paxton girls bas-
ketball coach Tommy Pitt-
man was approved as an
assistant coach to current
head coach Herb Haddock
for the 2007-08 school year.'
At the beginning of the
meeting, Superintendent
Carlene Anderson and Stu-
dent Service Coordinator
Dianne Hicks handed out
certificates to Maryllyn Gil-
bert, John Henderson and,
Austin Buzzett for recogni-
tion as the district's nomi-
nees for the Sunshine. State
Scholar. Dustin Hayhur4t
was also honored but was
not in attendance. Buzzett
will represent the district in
the next round of competi-
tion.
Before the regular meet-
ing, the board, re-organized
for the next year. Darrell
.Barnhill was chosen as chair-
man, with Bill Laird serv-
ing as vice-chariman tor the
next 12 months. The board
also agreed to hold each sec-
ond meeting of each month

Local real estate market defies national trends


By ALICIA LEONARD
The inflated housing
market bubble has popped.
One out of every 95 house-
holds in Florida face foreclo-
sure this year. That makes
Florida the third-ranking
state in foreclosures, behind
California and Nevada.
Walton County has seen
an increase in the rate of
foreclosures over the last
three years, jumping from
171 homes in 2005 to 346
homes in August of 2007.
Over 80 percent of those
listed on foreclosure roles
are homes in the south Wal-
ton area.
Experts across the coun-
ty blame everything, from
unscrupulous lenders, lax
lending standards, inexpe-
rienced real estate agents,
risky sub-prime loans, in-
surance costs and the much-
publicized adjustable rate
mortgages (ARM) as the
culprits.
Locally, Bruce Naylor,
owner/broker of Naylor Re-
alty, is not feeling the pinch.
In fact, Naylor said the lo-
cal market is stable and his
office is busy selling. "I be-
lieve numbers of sales are
all relative. I've been sell-
ing real estate in Defuniak
Springs for 20 years and our
numbers today are not that
different than 20 years ago.
I think we are in a normal
market today."
The housing market
reached a peak in 2004-2005,
leading many into new jobs
as real estate agents and
do-it-yourself house-flippers
looking to make a large and
quick return on their invest-
ment. "I don't know if we will
ever see those prices again,"
Naylor said, "but that's
the great thing about De-
Funiak Springs. It just put-


ters along. People love our
town and people will move
here no matter what the
interest rates are. We have
such a unique town that
people want to live here. We
are closing on sales here,
yet I know other places.in
the county where sales are
slim."
Even with the town's
charms, Naylor said, "You
have to price it right. A fair
market price is very impor-
tant. We have more sellers
than buyers right now, but
we are really grateful to
have those buyers looking at
DeFuniak." Naylor said his
business is also boosted by
the fact that those who have
once lived here often want
to return. "People love this
town and they often want to
come back here to retire or
buy a second home."
On the south end, foreclo-
sures and short sales are up,
according to Marilue Maris,
sales manager for Resort-
Quest on CR-30A. "We are
seeing an increase in foreclo-
sures, but we are also seeing
a real boost in short sales to
compensate." Short sales is
a term used to describe a
property in pre-foreclosure
or foreclosure that is sold
before the courts render a
final decree on status of the
property.
Maris agreed that Wal-
ton County does not seem
to be suffering the same
fate as many other Florida
counties. "We are also see-
ing pre-construction sales
holding steady or growing,"
said Maris. "Our sales for
2005 closed at $385 million
and we are looking at clos-
ing around $800 million
this year." Marris also gives
credit to the Baby Boomers,
"We are selling single-family


homes and many are selling
to the Baby Boomer genera-
tion." .
Getting rich quick may
have helped create what
some media outlets dub "The
Perfect Storm." People with


bad or no credit were being
offered ARMS to purchase
property in an effort to "flip"
or quickly sell that property
for a huge return. Naylor re-
flected on the issue, "Many
people, myself included,


bought their first home As
an investment. If I can ea4i&
7-10 percent a year on that
investment, I'm thrilled. B'th
what we have now, because
of that super-energized mar-
ket from a few years ago, we
have buyers that were hop-
ing to double their money in
24 months. I believe those
days are over. We are badc
to the traditional real es-
tate investments. Realisti-
cally, you could double your;
investment in 10 years, but:
not two."
A new trend, Naylor
says, is Baby Boomers look-
ing for second homes in this
area because of the sense of
community that DeFuniak
Springs offers them. "These
are all traditional sales and
that's what keeps our busi-
ness stable, where others in
the high-end area of sales
may have a hard go of it."
Local migration also plays
a part as other Walton com-
munities grow and overflow.
Those residents are moy-
ing toward north Walton. "I
have clients from Crestview,
Destin and south Walton,
waiting on their homes to
sell so they can move to De-
Funiak," said Naylor.
Overall, both realtors be-
lieve that the local area is
an island of stability even in
the midst of the real estate
storm. Naylor concluded,
"Because of the safe and
stable approach we have
always used, our buyers
are not a part of this storm,.
They qualified with lenders
for stable mortgages and,
unless they suffer something,
such as a job loss, we don't
have clients losing their
'homes because of lending,
practices or interest rates.
Our future here is bright." :

Lowe's will be opening
a new home improvement
store in DeFuniak Springs
in the not-too-distant future.
Bruce Naylor, of Naylor Re-
alty, represents Tandem De-
velopment, an organization
that has been searching out
property for Lowe's in this
area for several years. Nay-
lor said that Tandem had lo-
cated a likely piece of prop-
erty in DeFuniak Springs
two years ago, but that the
deal did not come to pass.
The parties found a sec-
ond property, approximate-
ly 12 acres in size, located
at U.S. 331 and Industrial
Park Drive. The property
was owned by Burlwood
Hills, LLC. Naylor report-
ed that after six months of
working out the deal, the
sale was closed on Nov. 26.
"I'm very excited about
Lowe's coming to DeFuniak,"
said Naylor. "I want to thank
our city officials, especially
the planning and zoning
staff, for working together
to make the Lowe's project


happen." Naylor expressed
optimism.that the new store
will create jobs and benefit
the community.
Naylor did not know
when Lowe's intends to
break ground.

ly closed a deal for sale of

Sheriffs Santa Patrol gearing u


Who knew some of San-
ta's elves wear green uni-
forms and drive white patrol
cars? The Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
Santa Patrol is gearing
up to prepare to make this
Christmas an enjoyable one
for some of Walton County's
children. To start the sea-
son, off, Cyndi Mount, De-
partment Manager for Wal-
Mart in DeFuniak Springs,
presented Capt. Eddie Far-
ris with a check on behalf
of Wal-Mart to help make
things better for local chil-
dren.
For almost 20 years, the


WCSO has joined with local
citizens and merchants to
make the program as suc-
cessful as possible. The San-
ta Patrol has helped hun-
dreds of children in Walton
County in the last decade
alone have a little brighter
Christmas morning. While
some Santa Patrol members
agree that some people do
fake advantage of it, they
know that most are in real
need. This does not discour-
age them. They know it is
more important to try to
help as many families as
they can.
Farris said, "I know


the program works. I am
very confident about it. We
all enjoy what we do and
deep down inside knowing
that we help one kid smile
makes our Christmas even
better." He added, "Occa-
sionally, we receive a letter
asking for personal items
such as clothes, toothpaste,
or shampoo. We try to get
whatever we can to help a
family out."
The Santa Patrol is ask-
ing for the public's support
through gifts of toys or
through monetary dona-
tions. The goal this year
is to provide toys and gifts


to as many
as possible.

DFS council holds abbreviated meeting.


By .ALh'L L. L E '. tRD
Mayor Harold Carpenter
announced the the Council
was only going to handle
emergency items at this
weeks Council meeting, due
to the absence of City Man-
ager Kim Kirby, who was
absent due to the recent
death of her son.
Carpenter called the
meeting to order and the
last renulur meeting min-
utes were approved 5-0.


Sara Bowers, finance
director, asked for the re-
newal of the city's certifi-
cates of deposit. Bowers
told the Council, "I am ob-
ligated to renew these CDs
in approved banks with the
highest amount of return
possible and for no longer
than a year." The CDs are

city funds and asset man-
agement. Total amount of
all CDs requiring renewal is


$711,612.68 and are held by
SunTrust bank. The Council

newals, the request for bill
payment and expenditures

There were no citizen com-
ments, but Council Member
James Coffield asked about
the city's Christmas party
and the Council's need to so-
lidify plans. Coffield said, "I
know we had this scheduled
for the 7th, but with Mrs.


Kirby's tragedy last week,
we have not been able to fi-
nalize a place and time for
the employee's Christmas
party." Much discussion en-
sued over whether to have
the party at the Chautau-
qua building or the commu-
nity center, near Harbeson
Field.
The Council finally agreed
to hold the party on, Dec. 7
at the community center.

-SHOP AT HOME
The DeFuniak Springs Business & Professional Association
(DBPA) sends its sincere thanks to everyone for making our 2007
Hometown Christmas the biggest and most successful event in our
history. It's estimated that nearly 5,000 people from all over northwest
Florida, south Alabama and southwest Georgia attended our annual
event.
Those visitors shopped, had lunch or dinner, refueled their cars,
and many stayed to tour Christmas Reflections. Downtown businesses
held special sales and the streets of DeFuniak Springs were teeming
with locals and visitors. All those things benefit our local economy, which.
is one of the reasons the DBPA does'what it does.
Throughout the rest of this holiday season, we urge you to shop at
home. The truth is we have almost anything a person could want.
Between the shops, markets and outlets in south Walton and the stores
and specialty shops in Freeport, Paxton and DeFuniak Springs, we have
just about everyone on your list covered. Not only that the money you
spend in Walton County stays here. It keeps all our merchants in
business and fuels our local economy. When you go to Ft. Walton,
Pensacola, Panama City or Dothan, you are supporting those cities -
which helps no one here at home. Spend too much time shopping
elsewhere and you soon won't have any other choice.
So help your community and help yourself this Christmas, shop at
home! In particular, we urge you to shop with your DBPA friends who are
here for you every day, rain or shine, all year long.

Walton County Sher-
iff Ralph L. Johnson par-
ticipated in the Steelefield
area Neighborhood Watch
program on Nov. 15. The
residents had several ques-
tions pertaining to meth
labs, such as how to detect
and report them. Johnson
pointed out how volatile
these are and that residents
should stay away from any
area they suspect may be a
meth lab. He said, "Folks
should make sure they re-
port the suspicious activi-
ties by either calling us di-
rectly or they can report it


anonymously through the
Crimestoppers tipline." The
residents provided home-
made chili, cakes and hot
coffee.

Ho, Ho, Ho

(can I still say that?)

By RON KELLEY

As we begin to turn our thoughts toward Christmas, I
find myself rt. l.'i i on the fact that political correctness
has long been out of control and is, even now, careening
around the corner like a drunk on New Year's Eve.
Case in point according to an article from the Sydney,
Australia-based newspaper The Daily Telegraph, the Aus-
tralian recruitment firm Westaff, which hires out hundreds
of Santas a year, is suggesting the jolly old elf say "ha, ha,
ha" instead ,a "It... ho, ho" this Christmas.
One recruit ,in.t,.1 in the article said he was told "ho,
ho, ho" is too close to the American slang term for pros-
titute. .1.,.i S.inr:is are less than jolly about the change.
Some have reportedly quit.
A \, -, .ili' representative reportedly told the newspaper
that the company had not banned its staff from saying "ho,
ho, ho," and that each individual Santa could decide wheth-
er they want to use the traditional greeting.
Oh, Don Imus, what have you wrought? It's already con-
sidered offensive to even say Christmas out loud, because
we don't want to offend the Muslims, Jews, Buddists, and
probably the Hare Krishnas, too.
Well, that offends me. Doesn't that count for anything?
Whoops, I'm sorry. I forgot. I'm an American (not an Irish-
American or a White-American or any other hyphenated
American) and it's now my job to not offend anyone in the
world.
That's only fair, since people in Iraq, Iran, Israel, China
and Mexico would no doubt immediately abandon their tra-
ditions if I happened to move there. Well, of course they
would. They would start re-printing everything in a lan-
guage I could read so I wouldn't have to learn their lan-
guage or their customs. I could dial 2 for English. They'd
build new schools and hire a phalanx, a plethora, an entire
brigade of teachers to speak to me in my own language.
They'd give me free health care and welfare and Social Se-
curity benefits even if I snuck into their country illegally
like a thief in the night.
They'd immediately fire hundreds of thousands of their
own citizens from good jobs so they could hire me instead -
so long as I would work cheap and they'd break their own
laws and pay me under the table for my work. They'd put
on television shows heck, they'd launch entire networks
that would carry shows in my language. Then they'd heap
abuse and charges of racism on their own citizens if anyone
dared to object or shout "Unfair!"
I can hear you snickering. You think that doing such
things would be foolish and ridiculous and you'd be right.
Which makes us foolish and ridiculous for allowing our
harebrained politicians to do everything I just mentioned.
So what should we call any three politically-correct
American politicians?

Ho, Ho, Ho.



Clarification:

The Nov. 22 edition of the Herald-Breeze ran an article
on a Nov. 15 public meeting at South Walton High School
over a controversial school play. A citizen. Jake Lehman.,
appealed the school's decision to produce "'Bhthe Spirit."
Lehman spoke at the Nov. 15 meeting.
Attending and speaking at the same meeting was an-
other citizen, also named Jake. last name not known.
who described himself as a father and aspiring author
from Fort Walton Beach. The Herald-Breeze mistakenly
identified that person as Jake Lehman, and attributed a
quote to him that should correctly have been attributed to
Jake from Fort Walton Beach. The error was also reflect-
ed in a portion of the same edition's editorial. The Herald
regrets any confusion this error may have caused.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
I am writing to give the local community some addition-
al information regarding the issues at COA that you have
been reporting on. This statement is my personal opinion,
and may or may not reflect the opinion of others.
At the Council On Aging (COA) board meeting of 11/14,
2007, Jean Harvey attempted to present over 100 signed
affidavits that had been written and signed by local clients
of COA, family members, ex-employees, and local profes-
sionals. The chairman of the board, Gene Ryan, refused
to allow the board to read these statements unless they
were notarized. We (Jean Harvey, Reetha French, and I)
were going to attempt to get them notarized. After consult-
ing with local, regional and state governmental agencies,
we were told that no other agency that we had spoken to
required notarization to conduct an initial assessment to
determine if any further action were to ,be taken.
Keep in mind that a good number of these statements
were made by elderly clients of COA. Many of these people
are home-bound with no transportation, except for Tri-
County, which operates on a very limited schedule because
of budget considerations and most notaries require a fee.
Although it might not seem like a lot to some of us, for an
elderly person on a limited budget without personal trans-
portation, that might be enough to dissuade them. Many
have already expressed the belief that complaining will do
no good, as well as the fear that if they complain, they
risk receiving less assistance from COA. or none at all. I
believe Mr. Ryan's refusal to consider t he statements was
a simple attempt to discourage us.
At the COA board meeting of 11/26/07, six board mem-
bers were present, including Ms. Brady and Mr. Ryan. Ms.
Harvey again tried to present the signed affidavits, in-
cluding new ones given to her since the previous meet-
ing. Again, Mr. Ryan refused to accept them, stating that
he didn't care to whom she had spoken, he was not accept-
ing them, as he had no way to know where we had got-
ten them. He further implied that several people, who he
would not identify, had told him that they had not known
what they were signing when they wrote the statements.,
Ms. Harvey had given one of the board members, Har-
old Carpenter, a letter written by a local podiatrist that
had provided services at COA for 15 years. At the end of
the meeting, Mr. Carpenter handed the letter back to me,
and told me he was sorry, but he couldn't read it without
permission from Mr. Ryan. For what it's worth, Mr. Car-
penter appeared apologetic, and I can understand that he
may not have wanted to start arguing with Mr. Ryan over
it. I made a comment to Mr. Carpenter that I thought a
board of any kind was made up of a group of members that
voted on decisions to be made. Normally, no one person,
including the chairman, could dictate or make up the rules
as they went along without a vote. For me, attending these
two board meetings has been an education. Meaning no
disrespect to any of the other board members, it is rather
clear to me that the COA board meetings are a one-man
show.
I will not waste time defending any of the statements
made by Ms. Brady regarding our initial statements, ex-
cept to say that we had each been given five minutes to
state our cases, and she was given two weeks to prepare
her answers and unlimited time to speak. I had already
expected her time to be spent talking in circles around the
issues we had presented, and to cast doubt on our reliabil-
ity typical tactics to shift the focus on the real issues her
behavior, disrespect, and indifference to the clients that
COA serves and employees that work under her.
Most importantly, I want the community to know that
Jean, Reetha, and I remain firm in our commitment to
bring your issues with COA and Ms. Brady to light, and to
the attention of individuals and organizations that can as-
sist in making positive changes. We will be attending, and
are on the agenda, of the Walton County Commissioner's
meeting of 11/27/07.
We ask that any of you that have not made statements
or spoken to us, but that wish to, please contact one of us.
We are not forcing anyone to make statements that do not
want to make. We are asking that, if you have wanted to
be heard in the past, please contact us. Remember, there
is strength in numbers. They may be able to ignore a few
of us, but it is difficult to ignore hundreds.
Sincerely,
Juanita Jackson

Editor,
This Thanksgiving season I want to express my thanks
to our Walton County Commissioners for implementing
the service of garbage pickup. Our tax dollars are being
put to good use. I also appreciate the Argyle Water Sys-
tem. Having lived with well water and a pitcher pump a
good part of my life, I smile with pleasure when I see a
running water faucet in the "Country."

Editor,
Congratulations to the people who objected to "Blithe
Spirit." You have succeeded in putting the intellectual rep-
utation of the citizens of the Panhandle back 100 years. Our
superintendent of schools and the school board pandered
to mob hysteria. They are the moot point in this disagree-
ment. So nobody won and nobody lost.
When do we start the book burning? Let me see, Shake-
speare's "Hamlet," Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol,"
"The Wizard of Oz" and so on. Of course, it is obvious the ob-
jectors have never heard of such prolific writings, so there
is not much point in mentioning so many others.
As for the clergy who spearheaded this rally, have
they ever read the Old Testament? How about booze and
Noah? Adultery? Pages of it. There is nothing going on to-
day that wasn't happening then. And what else does your
faith tell you to try and make us all abide by? How do you
feel about the church, especially the Catholic Church, in
one of their most sacred of rites, using wine for Holy Com-
munion? Let me get my pen and strike every mention of
"the Holy Spirit" and "Holy Ghost" from my Bible. Do any
of your children have copies of the Harry Potter books and
do they listen to the foul language on TV?
Once again, it is a case of the few trying to force their
will on to the rest of us, telling us what we should do or not
do. What's next? Where does this end? Imagine if this lot
had been around years ago, we would never had the fun of
listening to "The War of the Worlds" or reading H.G. Wells.,
This is another case of smothering imagination and nroti/
being able to tell the difference between fact and fiction.
Our poor kids don't stand a chance while certain people are
afraid of young people being smarter than they.
The bottom line to this is, several weeks ago, Tallahassee
told me Walton County did not have a current lock-down
system in place (for a bomb or armed person on school prop-
erty). I made this fact public, but heard nothing either by
e-mail, press or meetings to protest this fact. Where was
that gentleman then?

Editor:
Whoa! Hold everything! I would like to speak up for Kay
Brady. Your November 8th article about the director of
Walton County CouncilOn Aging (COA) did a terrible dis-
service to a woman who has worked so hard to take care of
area seniors.
I have worked for Kay for eight years. I have seen her
take meals to shut-ins herself when no driver was avail-
able, clean houses and scrub floors for sick patients. She
has cleaned out roach-infested filthy houses to give some-
one a fit place to live. The criticism she is receiving seems
unjust. I hope she will be given a chance to respond to these
unfair allegations at the next COA meeting.
June Williamson
DeFuniak Springs

Editor's note: Ms. Brady was given every opportunity to re-
spond before we published our first story and is, presum-
ably, free to speak at any COA meeting.

VFW says thank-you


By ROBIN NEWTON
Bingo players were sur-
prised when they showed
up to play bingo at the VFW
on Sunday afternoon. VFW


Commander Robert Fillen-
camp announced that he was
providing a free luncheon to
the players in appreciation
of their support for the VFW
bingo.


Fillencamp explained
that VFW charter states that
all net profits from gaming
must be donated to charity.
As a result of the bingo and
pull-tab machines, the VFW
was able to donate funds to
Walton Cares and the Fish-
er House. Walton Cares is
the reduced-food program
for Walton County residents
in need. The Fisher House,
now in the planning stages
for Eglin AFB, will provide
lodging, meals and other
services for families coming
to the base to be near ser-
vicemen or veterans being
treated at the hospital.
Heinz Reentz was the
cook for this special occa-


sion. He topped off his menu
of baked chicken, rice pi-
laf, and green beans with a
glass of red or white wine.
Bingo' player Judy Chris-
tianson donated the des-
serts. Fillencamp, a retired
Air Force colonel, took pride
in serving each player indi-
vidually, thanking them for
their support of the bingo,
The games are held each
Sunday in the VFW hall on
U.S. 90W, beginning at 12
noon. Fillencamp invited
the public to come out to
play, enjoy the fun and fel-
lowship with the knowledge
that the money raised is go-
ing to support worthy local
causes.

Ethics Commission to decide on


sanction for Ray Burgess


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Commission
on Ethics will meet on Nov.
30 in Tallahassee to decide
!whether to accept a recom-
4mended sanction in the.case
of former DeFuniak Springs
City Marshal Ray Neal Bur-
gess. Burgess plead to one
misdemeanor count of "al-
tering, defacing or falsify-
ing a document" on Aug. 4,
2005. In addition to paying
a fine, Burgess voluntarily
relinquished his criminal
justice certifications for a
period of two years from
that date.

Burgess also faced a com-
plaint filed Aug. 10, 2005
with the Florida Commission
on Ethics. Following an in-
vestigation by that commis-
sion, Burgess and the com-

mission's advocate entered
into a "joint stipulation of
fact, law, and recommend-
ed order." The stipulation,
which is strictly preliminary
until acted upon by the com-
mission, recommends, that
Burgess pay a fine of $3,500,
and accept a "public censure
and reprimand."
Kaye Starling, complaint
coordinator for the Com-
mission on Ethics, said that
the commission will meet
on Nov. 30 and consider
the proposed stipulation.
The commission hAs also
received a response to the
proposed stipulation from
Patti King-Skinner, who re-
ported the incident, that led
to Burgess's eventual plea.
King-Skinner is asking that
the commission "issue a

Breastfeeding 101 on Tues-

and recommended tech-
niques to make breastfeed-
ing easier for both mom and


baby. Filled with antibodies,
protein and essential vita-
mins and minerals, breast

meet the specific needs of
your baby at each stage of
development.

COA director



answers


accusations

By CHRIS MANSON
The Walton County Council Council on Aging (COA)
board of directors held a special meeting Monday afternoon
to allow director Kay Brady to respond to allegations made
by former employees at the board's last regular monthly
meeting.
"We will not get into the complaints again," COA board .-
chairman Gene Ryan said before turning over the floor to
Brady. "If we get into 'finer points' of employee matters,
we'll have to close the meeting."
Ryan was addressing his comments to the women who KAY BRADY
had voiced their grievances against Brady in five-minute employees and <
increments during last Wednesday's meeting. Juanita COA board vice
Jackson and Reetha French, former COA case managers; chairman Gene
Jean Harvey, ex-coordinator for the Retired Senior Volun-
teer Program (RSVP); Billie McKee, COA client; and Laura
Curry, a certified nursing assistant currently on inactive
status with COA, were present, along with five of the eight I .
COA board members.
Ryan said the executive committee comprised of Ryan,
vice-chairman Bill Roberts, secretary Ida Wallace, treasur-
er Annie Ruth Campbell, and one additional board member
would "take under advisement" the women's allegations ... ,.
and Brady's responses to them.
At Roberts' request, Brady identified the relevant parties J
before addressing each complaint. Brady said Jackson was
hired as a part-time employee and that Jackson worked out .
of her home. "She did not want to work out of the office at
the time," said Brady. "We did ask her for files for an au-
dit done in 2002 by Pensacola (Area Agency on Aging, the
COA's parent agency)." During the earlier meeting, Jack-
son said she "wasn't really comfortable" with maintaining WALTON CC
client files in her home office. allegations mad
Brady went on to state that a March 2003 audit found
that the COA was not in compliance with the standards
for assisted-living facilities such as the ones where Jackson
worked as a case manager. "It was strongly recommended
that the case manager be closely supervised," said Brady.
Brady added that the majority of communications between
her and Jackson including time sheets and mileage re-
ports were by e-mail.
Frances Howell, who operates two lassisted-living facil- when workers E
ities in the area, said that during the time Jackson case they won't be ge

"We probably told (French) to see if an exterminator
could go out. We have clients who get exterminator servic-
es. I don't know which client it was, so I can't comment on
the actual client and what went on," said Brady.
Roberts mentioned an episode involving a quadriplegic
COA client's request for a window air conditioning unit. "If
it's the one I'm thinking of, he did not meet the qualifica-
tions," said Brady, referring to income requirements, "We
probably asked if there were any in the 'loaner' closet. But
to buy a new one, he did not qualify for the program."
Carpenter threw out a couple of phrases overheard at
the prior meeting: "Hard to work with. Caused employees
to cry."
"I may have," Brady answered. "If I give them stuff to
correct, I don't know." There was some noticeable grum-
bhng among the guests'. "I told employees to do a job. If the.'
don't do a job, they get !chatted' to."
"Yes. She's hollered at me," Curry said sharply. "I know
how she treated people. I know how she treated me."
French stood up. "I was a professional office manager for
over 30 years," she said. "I know how to draft and write let-
ters. Kay had me re-do a letter four times. It's ridiculous,
her being so nit-picky."
Brady responded to a Meals on Wheels incident involv-
ing Harvey. "She worked for RSVP, and we gave her office
space," said Brady. "Each agency has different requirements
for background checks. We don't send Meals on Wheels to
clients' homes without a background check." Brady said
when Harvey delivered meals without her authorization,
"yes, she was hollered at."
"She did chew my fanny about Meals on Wheels," said
Harvey. "The secretary came to me. There was no driver in
Freeport or DeFuniak Springs. What was I supposed to do,
let them starve?"
Harvey said there were "two, three, four days at a time
people didn't have caretakers. (Brady's) No. 1 responsibility
should be to our clients."
"We went through this before,". said Ryan. "Kay has reg-
ulations and guidelines to follow. It may not always jibe
with what you think is correct."
."What about compassion and care?" Harvey asked.
"They have a limited number of personnel, resources,
and funds. Regardless of how compassionate she is--"
"She's not!" Harvey interrupted.
Later, Brady addressed the matter of the frozen meal
program reductions. "When the county cut funding, that
program was cut," she said. "Because there are four or five
other programs that can't be cut."
"I thought the (BCC) was still providing some funding,
just not as much as before," said Roberts. "The county cut
the part that goes to the frozen meals?"
"Yes," said Brady. "We sent a spreadsheet to (the BCC)
with our funding allocations and how many meals--what
would happen with funding cuts."
"At budget time, every other agency goes through a
'scrub session,' where they are given an opportunity to jus-
tify the budget they're requesting," said Ryan. "In the past,
I'm not sure why, the COA wasn't invited to those budget
scrubs. At the scrub, all of the individual nuances would be
explained."
Brady said 230 clients were removed from the frozen
meal program and that over half of those clients were add-
ed to a waiting list. "If we get additional funding from the
United Way or (AAA), they will come off the waiting list."
"In the past, we've been able to supply meals for all the
clients?" Carpenter asked.
"Mm-hm," said Brady.
After about two hours, Ryan announced he would close
the meeting. Jackson said, "I've tried to respect the propri-
ety of the board. My silence isn't saying I agree with this
board, but I was trying to be respectful." She said she would
respond in writing to the statements made about her to-
day.
Ryan later told the Herald-Breeze that a decision would
be made by the executive committee "pending any earth-
shattering revelations."
He added that the COA board was not ignoring the com-
plainants' affidavits. "But we need some way of validating
it," said Ryan. He added that the AAA would be conduct-
ing a full-fledged investigation sometime in the near future,
based on the complaints against Brady.
"I wanted to inform you that the (BCC) has copies of our
affidavits," Harvey said. "We are on the agenda for Tues-
day's meeting."

DBPA continued to receive
complaints from people who
must work on that day and
could not attend. "Also, lots
of people traditionally go to
the malls and. the big stores
on that day no matter what
- so we were missing out on
a large segment of shoppers.
Comander said that chang-
ing the day to Saturday
also allowed her and other
DBPA members a chance to
enjoy their own Thanksgiv-
ing with family and friends,
rather than spend the day
setting up.
"All in all, it was one of
the best decisions we could
have made," she said.

Comander said she was
also pleased to see that
downtown retailers had
agreed to hold a special
Saturday sale on their own.
"That shows the kind of
interest, cooperation and
unity that DeFuniak retail


businesses need to do busi-
ness here."
Comander said she hopes
to recruit even more down-
town businesses so that
more downtown events can
be planned. "It takes ev-
eryone working together to
pull off something like this.
It can't just be left up to a-
few businesses to do all the
work, while others sit back
reap the benefit. We have
to stand together and work
together. That's why Home-
town Christmas has become
the kind of success it has -
everybody pulling together
for the greater good and
this is such a wonderful
community with so many
hard-working and creative
business leaders. As my

Taylor. You see, Taylor has
come full circle.
Joseph Taylor's family
moved to Defuniak Springs
from West Virginia when he
was just a kid and the influ-
ence of the arts in the area
started him on his journey
from student, to performer,
to teacher. "I was al-
ways involved in things
like show-choir from middle
school through high school."
He then attended Okaloo-
sa Walton College (OWC).
"Well, it was O.W.C.C.
then," he laughs, "but I at-
tended as a vocal scholar-
ship student in the fine arts
program." While performing
with the O.W.C. show-choir,
Taylor met a mentor whose
shoes he would one day be
called home to attempt to
fill.
"Frances Herron pulled
me aside on day," recounts
Taylor, "and she told me if
I would take a ballet class
and let her put a little tech-
nique under me, I would be
a pretty good performer."
Not long after, Taylor took
his first ballet class and ac-
cording to him,"I fell in love
with it."
Even though Taylor was
realizing a passion and tal-
ent for dancing, he was still
leaning toward a career in
musical theater. He says
the real change in direction
came when he was getting
ready to attend Florida State
University (FSU). "They
didn't accept me when I ap-
plied for the musical theatre
program, so Francis talked
me into applying to their
dance program and they ac-
cepted me, so I just kind of
fell away from the other side
of the theatre world, and fo-
cused on dance and concert
work," remembers Taylor.
He went on to earn his mas-
ter's degree (MFA) at FSU.
After graduation, Taylor
felt like he had really moved
away from home for the first
time. "Even when I attend-
ed F.S.U., I traveled back


and forth to DeFuniak all
the time to see my family.
So leaving F.S.U. was re-
ally the first time I felt out
on my own. My career really
took off when I moved to Or-
lando."
Taylor performed under
contract for Disney in the
"Beauty and the Beast Live
Show" for four years. "It was
a lot of fun. The cast mem-
bers were great to work with
and we performed the show
at least five times a day. Dis-
ney is a great place to start
or a great place to end your
career," Taylor says. After
his contract ran it course
with Disney, Taylor signed
on with a prominent cruise-
ship-line to dance on their
stage. "It was something I.
had never done, you know.
Travel like that and I met a
lot of wonderful people and
saw so many beautiful and
different places."
During his work and
travels, Taylor maintained
contact with Herron. "We
talked at least once a month.
Francis was really like a
second momn to me." During
his last trip for work Herron
called and asked Taylor to
think about substituting for
her for a year while she re-
covered from an illness and
was also awaiting surgery.
A week before Taylor was
scheduled to arrive back
home and begin his sub-
stitute position, his friend
and mentor Herron passed


away while waiting for a
liver transplant. Taylor
credits Herron with being
one of the people that kept
him grounded throughout
his career and, in Febru-
ary 2007, Taylor was hired
permanently in his men-
tors' position. "Francis re-
ally taught me to remember
where I came from and how
important it is to give back
to those who have given to
you," he says.
Just like in the world of
dance, Taylor is more action
than talk, "I know where
these students are coming
from. It wasn't that long ago
that I was here myself. This
place gave me my career. Dr.
Herron and Francis gave me
a lot of breaks in my career
and I want to help my stu-
dents the way they helped
me get started."
Also strong in his faith
and community contribu-
tions, Taylor's father is
the pastor of the Commu-
nity Holiness Church in
DeFuniak Springs. Taylor
serves as the youth pastor
and a worship leader, as
well as playing the piano for
services, driving back and
forth between Niceville and
DeFuniak three to four days
a week. Taylor especially en-
joys working with his youth
group. "We just named them
the 'Chosen Generation.' It's
really cool to get to see their
excitement in their faith, I
remember how important

(Taylor's girlfriend) Joseph, sister-in-law Anita Taylor and
brother Andy, and sister Donna Davis (seated).


God was to me at that age.
To be a part of a commu-
nity that helps equip the
kids in DeFuniak and here
at Niceville with the ability
to make good faith-based
choices is a great feeling."
Besides his passion for
teaching and his faith Taylor
has one more pursuit up his
sleeve. "We are around half-
way in meeting our goal to
name the dance studio here
at the college after Francis,"
says Taylor, "She was here
at the beginning and worked
tirelessly to build the dance
program into what it is to-
day. We launched a cam-
paign in January to name
the studio after her and en-
courage anyone to donate
any amount to help us reach
our goal of $90,000."
In the end, Taylor feels
God grants men free will,
but was always a part of his
destiny. Taylor says when
he was last aboard the cruise
line, he started "to feel a
change roll over me. I was
living through a dark period
in my life, as many perform-
ers do. It's part of the terri-
tory and I was trying to fill a
void in my life, but I was try-
ing to fill it with the wrong
things. I rededicated my life
in April 2006 because I re-
L


alized that God was what
was missing and he was
instrumental in putting my
life back together where it


is now. I feel like this wasn't
an accident, me coming back
home," he smiles, "I feel like
I was placed here."

By JEFFREY POWELL
Most people are probably
unable to imagine the hard-
ships of frontier Florida. A
life without running water,
electricity or air-condition-
ing is alien to most of today's
citizens. Despite such prob-
lems, the first white settlers
were able to eke out a living
and survive the harsh Flori-
da climate.
One of the endearing
remnants of this time peri-
od is the old "cracker"-style
homestead. At one time,
these homes could be found
throughout the southeast
and were common in north-
west Florida. Very few au-
thentic cracker homes exist
today.


An exception to this rule
is the cracker homestead
located at the Forest Capi-
tal State Museum in Perry,
Florida. Cracker homes were
built from the mid 1800s
through the first decades of
the 20th century.
There are three main
theories about how the word
"cracker" developed, but
none of the three conclu-
sively show how the term
became applied to Florid-
ians.
Theory One: Cracker
comes from a Celtic word
meaning braggart or loud-
mouth, but the theory
doesn't explain why the
word in this sense would
be applied to the usually

backwoods.
Theory Two: The
comes from the prac
"corncracking" or gr
dried corn for use a
and meal. When usE
way, a Cracker is sor
who can't afford any
food. But this theory
answer the question
the word got applied
exclusively to folks ir
areas when there we

cities.
Theory three: The
comes from the soi
whips used to drive
and oxen. Florida cat
cracked whips to flus
stock out of the 'pa
scrub while settlers
whips to spur on oxe
pulled their carts an
ons. Cracker has bee
in this sense since tI
ly 1800s. This is th
popular theory today

Florida Without a doubt, the
museum in Perry uses the F
word word in its most positive ap-
ctice of plication. The home found
finding in Perry was built by Wiley
s grits W. Whiddon in 1863, using
ed this hand-hewn logs with a clay
nebody and stick fireplace in each
V other room. The home was moved
doesn't to its present location in
of how 1972 and was a gift from
almost Senator Pete Gibson.

-re just tinctive architectural style
in the in Florida that was popular
in its day. The breezeway, or
name dogtrott," actually separates

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
withheld by request)
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
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.

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 par-
ticipate, they should visit
the Freeport Library during


Santa Patrol


operating 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 County
Sheriffs Santa Patrol which
provides presents and food
for the area's most needy
families during the holi-
days.
"We are hoping to raise


enough money to make a sig-
nificant contribution to the
Sheriffs holiday program,"
says Nicole Shinskie, Man-
ager of the Freeport Library
who is orchestrating the
readathon. "I think this is
a significant way to engage


our young people in reading
while supporting such a sig-
nificant and worthy cause,"
she says.
For more information,
contact Nicole Shinskie at
(850) 835-2040


The past few years
have swiftly flown and
before we know it, you
will be grown. Our little
girl is growing up too
fast. It's hard to believe
ten years have past since
God blessed us with your
birth and sent you to us,
here on earth.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007


The ruling principle of a good life
By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


In the first book of the
Bible, we meet Moses. He is
one of the greatest men in
Old Testament history. His
greatness was not just in
what he did. He was great
in character because he
believed God, and what He'
told Moses to do.
In the book of Hebrews
we find something more
about Moses which explains
much of the greatest of his
character. Hebrews 11:27
reads, "By faith he (Moses)


forsook Egypt, not fearing
the wrath of the king: for he
endured, as seeing Him who
is invisible." He was great
because of the faith he had
in the God he could not see.
He was a man who
exercised his faith. His
mother, Jochebed, hid him
for three months after his
birth, then in faith trusted
him to the Nile River. There
the king's daughter found
him and hired his mother to
bring him up. She, too, was


a person of faith, and this
early teaching of his mother
moved Moses to have faith
in the invisible God, as
though he could see Him
who is invisible.
Moses had a constancy of
faith. He never saw God, but
his faith was "as seeing Him
who is invisible."Changes
in his circumstances never
dimmed his faith-sight
for an instant. He always
looked for God in all things
and faith-sight was always


unclouded and clear. What
a lesson we can learn from
him in our own journey by
faith!
Faith controlled Moses'
conduct. The result of
faith-sight caused him to
"endure." He renounced all
the wealth of Egypt to lead
God's people from that place
of bondage. He met all kinds
of difficulties along the way,
yet he endured all of them
because of faith in God.
The result of faith-sight


brought to Moses the
courage he needed to lead
a people who did not have
the same degree of faith
that he and a few others
had. We can endure as
well by faith. "Behold, we
count them happy which
endure." (James 5:12).
"Endure as seeing Him who
is invisible."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007


Sports News & Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
Volleyballseasonwrapped
up last week with no team
from our region capturing
a state title. Tallahassee
Leon got close as the Lions
lost to Tampa Plant in the
state championship game
in Class 5A. Plant (29-1)
won the state title in three
game (25-20, 25-19, 25-20)
at The Lakeland Center.
North Florida Christian out
of Tallahassee was the only
other team from our region
to make it to the state tour-
nament. The Eagles lost in
the Class 2A semifinals to
King's Academy out of West
Palm Beach in four games.
With football, volleyball,
golf and cross country over
for this school year, the most
impressive performance of
our local athletes remains
Walton's golf team making
it to the state tournament
for the second consecutive
season.
Looking back on the local
high school football season
presents several interesting
footnotes. Walton recorded
33 quarterback sacks with
freshman Deon Lee record-
ing 12.5, likely a Walton
record for a freshman. Issac
Jackson rushed for 1,321


yards and scored 17 touch-
downs as a junior. South
Walton's Kenzie Clemmons
finished his career with
249 rushing yards against
Sneads and scored six touch-
downs against the Pirates.
Clemmons had 36 carries
and helped South Walton
rack up a school record 30
first downs in their regular
season finale. Freeport's
Cole Weeks hung in at quar-
terback as a sophomore de-
spite being sacked nearly 30
times. Weeks threw for 668
yards despite not having the
benefit of a consistent run-
ning game.
Odie Delaney will not
defend his wrestling state
championship at South
Walton. Delaney recently
up and moved to Michigan,
so he will not be around for
the FHSAA state wrestling
finals later this season.
Port St. Joe lost to Mayo
Lafayette as the Sharks
ended their playoff run in
the second round with a
16-7 loss. Chad Hempstead
threw two touchdown passes
in the first half and Port St.
Joe quarterback Matt Gan-
non tossed two costly,inter-
ceptions as the Hornets held
on for a 16-7 victory. The


loss ends the Sharks season
with an 8-4 record.
FAMU High defeated
Graceville 45-24 and will
host Deltona Trinity Chris-
tian in Tallahassee on Fri-
day in a Class B state semi-
final. One of the games of
the night will take place in
Newberry in Class 2B as
Florida High makes the trip
to central Florida for a battle
between the two 12-0 teams
in a state semifinal. In Class
3A, Tallahassee Godby will
travel to St. Augustine for a
third round playoff game.
Pace will travel to Jack-
sonville First Coast in a
third round game in Class
4A. Pace clobbered Milton
27-3 last week. Pace has
made it past the third round
only once, 2005, when they
lost in the fourth round to
Ponte Vedra Beach Nease
31-14. How unlucky were
the Patriots that season?
Well, Tim Tebow was the
quarterback of the winning
team.
University of South Flori-
da sophomore defensive end
George Selvie is a Bronko
Nagurski Trophy Final-
ist and on the latest watch
list for the Ted Hendricks
Award. He leads the coun-


try with 31.5 tackles for loss
and will enter the Bulls'
bowl game one-half TFL
short of tying the NCAA re-
cord. He also is second na-
tionally with 14.5 sacks. He
has racked up three or more
TFL in six games this sea-
son and has led the country
in TFL since the opening
game of the season when he
recorded six against an out-
manned Elon team. Selvie
played his high school foot-
ball at Pine Forest.
Brett DeVall, a 6-4,
215-pound left-hander pitch-
er from Niceville signed to
play for the University of
Georgia next year. DeVall
is ranked 18th among Base-
ball America Top 100 pros-
pects for the class of 2008.
The son of Lowell and Nan-
cy DeVall, he was named
an AFLAC All-American
following his junior year at
Rutherford High School. He
went 8-3 with a 0.70 ERA
for the Rams and coach Jon
Hudson. In 53 innings, he
tallied 98 strikeouts and
held opponents to a .120
batting average.
Haley Millsap, from Pace
High .School, signed with
Mississippi to play golf for
the Lady Rebels. Millsap


will join the program begin-
ning in the 2008-09 academ-
ic year. Millsap is ranked
No. 32 in the nation for the
class of 2008 in the Golfweek
Sagarin Rankings. She cap-
tured first place in the Amer-
ican Junior Golf Association
(AJGA) Jerry Pate/Andrew
Institute Southern Jr. this
year. Millsap has numer-
ous first place finishes in
the Arrowhead Junior Golf
(AJGT) and Southeastern
Junior Golf Tours (SJGT).
She qualified for the U.S.
Girls Junior Championship
in 2005 and 2006.
University of Tennes-
see at Martin junior guard
Lester Hudson made NCAA
Division I men's basketball
history on Tuesday, Novem-
ber 13, when he recorded
a quadruple-double in the
Skyhawks 116-74 victory
over Central Baptist Col-
lege. He is believed to be the
first men's player to accom-
plish the feat at the Division
I level. Hudson filled up the
box score with 25 points, 12
rebounds, 10 assists and 10
steals in 31 minutes of play.
He was 10-of-17 from the
field and 5-of-7 from 3-point
range and also blocked a
shot.


Tuberville staying, Carr going


By CHUCK HINSON
Two football institutions
got some type of news last
.Monday. Tommy Tuberville
is staying at Auburn, and
Lloyd Carr says farewell to
the big house.
After weeks of specula-
tion, Auburn head football
coach Tommy Tuberville has
eased the minds of many Ti-
ger fans and has said he is
staying put. It was rumored
that he might be moving to
the Lone Star state to take
on the position of head coach


for Texas A & M.
The Texas A & M post is
looking to possibly replace
former Alabama head foot-
ball coach Dennis Fran-
chione.

Tuberville said he would
not be leaving Auburn and
would stay as long as they
allowed him. Despite not
discussing contract exten-
sions yet, plans are for Tu-
berville and athletic director
Jay Jacobs will negotiate
their contract sometime this


week.
Auburn improved to 8-4,
4-3 after their 17-14 win
over Bama this past week-
end.
For fans of the northern
influence, a coaching icon
has stepped down from the
reins of coaching one of the
powerhouse football teams
of the century. Head football
coach Lloyd Carr is hanging
up his Michigan coaching
cap and stepping outside
the big house.
After 13 years as serving


as head coach, Carr retired
last Monday following the
Wolverines' fourth straight
loss to Ohio State and their
embarrassing season opener
loss.. They were ranked No.
5, and fell to unranked Ap-
palachian State, 34-32.
Carr led the Wolverines to
121 wins and five Big Ten ti-
tles, with one national cham-
pionship in 1997 during his
13-year career at Michigan.
He also had a 121-40 record
for a .752 winning percent-
age, seventh among active


coaches, just behind Florida
State's Bobby Bowden.

In his final season, the
Wolverines lost their two
opening games to Appala-
chian State and Oregon,
came back and won eight-
straight, and then lost their
last two games to Wisconsin
and Ohio State.
The departure of 62-year-
.old Carr has left the door
open and LSU's Les Miles
tops the charts as the No. 1
pick to replace him.

Gators crush Noles, Tebow excels


By CHUCK HINSON

For anyone who doubted
that Tim Tebow had what
it took to bring home the
Heisman trophy, this past
Saturday night should have
settled any questions. Flori-
da took down Florida State
in a landslide score of 45-12,

secutive victories over the

Seminoles.

The only scoring that FSU
was able to get was through
the kicking leg of Gary Cis-
mesia, who put up all 12
points. Quarterback Drew
Weatherford was unable to
connect with anyone for a
single touchdown. This was
also the most lopsided FSU/

53-14 victory in 1983.
Tebow threw three touch-
down passes, ran for two
Gator scores and and
strengthened his claim for
the Heisman trophy while
helping the 12th-ranked
Gators jumped to the No. 10
spot on Sunday. He led the
Gators (9-3) to touchdowns
on four of its five posses-
sions and finished the game


19 of 28 for 262 yards and 13
carries for 89 yards.
Florida's Percy Harvin,
who had missed the last
two games due to migranes,
attacked the 'Noles on the
field when he ran 16 times
for a career-high 157 yards
and scored on a 24-yard run
with less than three min-
utes to play in the game.


BC gets revenge on 'Canes


By CHUCK HINSON
Boston College finally
ended their 15-game los-
ing streak to the University
of Miami when they and
quarterback Matt Ryan,
who *threw for 369 yards
and three touchdowns, blew
past the 'Canes in Boston
and went on to win, 28-14.
The Eagles are now set


to head to Atlanta to play in
the ACC conference game.
This is the first time that
Boston College has beat
Maimi since Doug Flutie
was quarterback in 1984.

Boston (10-2, 62) will
travel to Jacksonville this
Saturday, to take on Vir-
ginia Tech. The two already


pounded the grounds earlier
this year when Boston Col-
lege beat the Hokies 14-10,
again thanks to Ryan and
his 24-yard touchdown pass
across the field with 11 sec-
onds remaining on the play
clock during the Oct. 25


game.
The Hurricanes (5-7,
2-6) close out their season
with no chance of being in-
vited to a bowl game. This
is the worst record the Hur-
ricanes have had in nine
years.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007


Tigers make it six


PAGE 11-B


straight wins


By CHUCK HINSON
With the LSU loss, Au-
burn did not have a chance
to break into the top 25,
but they felt like they were
at the No. 1 spot as they
slipped by Nick Saban and
the Alabama Crimson Tide
on Saturday, winning 17-10.


It all came down to the last
3:50 of the game. Auburn
quarterback Brandon Cox's
1-yard sneak won the game
and made it six in-a-row
over Alabama.

Auburn (8-4, 5-3) recov-
ered an on-side kick and


ran out the clock after Brad
Lester gained 12 yards on a
fourth-and-1 from the Crim-
son Tide territory. The game
got kicked off with a 3-yard
run by Ben Tate and the Ti-
gers never lost the lead.
The Tigers had already
tied their five-game winning


streak they had over the
Tide since 1958. They broke
a new record by adding the
sixth win to their roster and
leaving an even more bit-
ter taste and bigger, rivalry
with the Alabama team next
year.
Alabama (6-6, 4-4) is still


having its chains yanked af-
ter hiring Nick Saban at $4
million a year. Most fans,
players, students and alum-
m ni wanted him there, if for
no other reason than to sim-
ply beat Auburn.

The Tide lost their final


four math-ups, including
their embarrassing loss
to Louisiana-Monroe two
weeks ago. The team seems
to be unable to get over that
blow and now the Tide and
Saban have even more ex-
plaining to do to the fans
and alumni.


2007 Youth Market Hog Show and Sale


The 2007 Youth Market
Show and Sale was held
during the week of October
15-20 at the Walton County
Fair. According to director
Odon Russell, appreciation
goes out to the Fair Board
and many others who helped
to make sure this year's
events were successful. This
is the first time the sale date
had to be changed to Satur-
day night due to the 'rain-
storms that came through
on Thursday.
The Grand Champion
hog was shown by Savani-
nah Morgan of the Walton
County Livestock 4-H Club.
It weighed 246 pounds
and also placed first in the
Heavy Class. Mr. and Mrs.
Phil Anderson were buyers
for $2.27 per pound. Her
brother, Cameron Morgan,
also of the Walton County
4-H Livestock Club, showed
the Reserve Champion. It
weighed 225 pounds and was
sold for $2.40 per pound to
Mr. and Mrs. Kyle McDon-
ald. Other hogs sold from
$1.40 to $2.60 per pound.
"Thanks to all the buyers
who showed up on Satur-
day night to show support
for a group of hard-working
youngsters and their 4-H or
FFA projects."
Winners in the Heavy
Class were: First Saxan-
nah Morgan; Second Cam-
eron Morgan: Third Jay
McDaniel; Fourth Susie
Thomas; Fifth Paxton FFA:
and Sixth Chel-ey Hobbhs.
Winners in the Light
Class: were. First Paxton
FFA; Second William Mor-
gan; Third Williamin Ander-
son; Fourth Jay McDaniel:
Fifth Dilhlon Crawford:
Sixth Katie Kinkey: Sev-
enth Lee Jackson: Eighth
- Josh Gautnev: Ninth -
Alan Cassadv; and Tenth
- Nathan Hobbs. Also show-
ing hogs in this class were:
Chelsey Hobbs, Nathan Kin-
key, A.J. Neale, Joey Delillo,


Thomas Glidewell and Jesse
Bearden.
There were eight in the
Extra Light Class this year,
but the hogs were too light
to sell. However, it gave the
young people the opportu-
nity to compete in the show.
First place was Josh Mathis;
Second Brianna Caryl;
Third Aubrey Anderson;
Fourth Laura Ashley;
Fifth Courtney Bowden;
Sixth Sara Cain; Seventh
- Josh McLaney and Eighth
- Christopher Bearden.
The judge for ,the show-
manship contests was Jar-
rett Tyus, of Sneads. He has
been involved in judging
livestock contests for many
years. The Senior Show-
manship winners (14 years
and up): First Josh Mathis;
Second Aubrey Anderson;
Third Courtney Bowden;
Fourth Thomas Glide-
well; Fifth Lee Jackson
and Sixth Susie Thomas.
Winners in the Intermedi-
ate Showmanship contest
(11-15 years old) were: First
- Leah Infinger; Second
- Cameron Morgan and
Third William Anderson.
The winners in the Junior


Showmanship contest (8-10
years) were: First Savan-
nah Claire Morgan; Second
- Nathan Hobbs and Third
- Chris Bearden. The main
objective of these contests is
to teach the participants to
properly display their hog to
the judge and, at the same
time, keep their eye on the
judge at all times.
James Robbins, of Rob-
bins Hydraulics in Paxton,
presented a $50 bill each to
Josh Mathis and Michael
Kinkey for their showing
the winning hogs in the ex-
tra light and light classes.
A very enjoyable pork bar-
becue meal was provided to
prospective buyers, the par-
ticipants and their parents,
and other special invited
guests before the sale. The
food was prepared by sev-
eral parents and supporters
of the hog show and sale.
Russell presented spe-
cial recognition award cer-
tificates to individuals that
have been so instrumental
in making this hog show
and sale to be so successful.
Those receiving outstand-
ing service certificates were:
Henry Alford, Dale Ander-


son and Jim Wasson. Rus-
sell reflected on the days
when Dale and Henry were
students of his while he
taught at Walton. Jay Mc-
Daniel, Paxton FFA Chap-
ter's president, presented
Odon Russell a special rec-
ognition plaque for all his
efforts since he and Bob
Laird started this, the Wal-
ton County Hog Show and


Sale many years ago. "This
county's hog show is one of
the best in the Panhandle of
Florida."
Many thanks and much
appreciation also goes to
the sponsors that contrib-
uted to the students' proj-
ects as "add-on" money to
their project. Another group
that deserves a big "thank-
you" were the persons that


assisted getting the right
pig(s) out of their pen(s) into
the show or sale and back
again to their. correct pen.
This part of the event is cru-
cial for the show and sale
to run smoothly. A special
sense of gratitude goes to
Sharon Rigby for her faith-
fulness year after year for
taking the pictures of both
nights' events.

Walton boys finish second in Thanksgiving tourney


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves bat-
tled hard in their champion-
ship game against Jackson-
ville Mandarin on Saturday
night, but could not over-
come an early deficit as the
visiting team defeated Wal-
ton 53-38.
Walton defeated Dothan
Northside 77-53 and Na-
varre 83-82 in overtime on
Friday to reach the champi-
onship game.
Eight teams were in-
vited to partake in the two
day event with each squad
playing two games on Fri-
day and six teams playing a
single game on Saturday.
, In the opening round,
Navarre defeated Pensaco-
la Tate 66-46, Fort Walton
Beach beat Panama City
Bay 71-53 and Jacksonville
Mandarin defeated Norcross
Meadowcreek 72-65.
Walton opened the tour-


ney with their third victory
of the season in defeating
Northside 77-53. James
Towery had 20 points and
Justin Crishon added 19
from the interior as Walton
advanced to a second round
meeting with Navarre.
In the second round, Pen-
sacola Tate defeated Dothan
Northside 80-67 with Nor-
cross Meadowcreek edging
Panama City Bay 77-71.
Jacksonville Mandarin held
off Fort Walton Beach 63-60
while Walton won a thriller
over. Navarre 83-82 in over-
time.
The Braves trailed Na-
varre 24-9 early in the con-
test, but Dylan Laird helped
spark a rally with 15 points,
all on three-point shots, as
Walton built a fourth quar-
ter lead. The Braves were
beneficiaries of three techni-
cal fouls on the Raiders that
helped Walton take a fourth


quarter lead.
Laird finished with 21
points while Tarrell Bram-
let had 20 points and James
Towery 16.

Guard Brandon Penn
did all he could to keep the
Raiders in the game. He
scored 32 points and slashed
to the basket throughout
the contest as he scored 17
of the Raiders 29 points in
the fourth quarter and over-
time.
Walton drained 8-of-10
free throws in overtime
to build a lead, only to see
Navarre get within a point
after Penn nailed a pair of
three-pointers in the extra
frame, though the last oc-
curred with less than five
seconds left in overtime, and
with Navarre out of tim-
eouts, Walton escaped with
the win.
Saturday's action saw


Norcross Meadowbrook
crush Tate 71-35 with Fort
Walton Beach routing Na-
varre 81-48.
In Mandarin's win over


Walton, the Braves man-
aged only ten points in the
first half as the offense nev-
er got going. Tarell Bramlet
was the only player in dou-


ble figures with 10 points-
as Manadarin dominated-
the boards and won the coi:
test without hitting a single
three-point shot.

Hometown


Democracy aims



to monitor growth


By LEAH STRATMANN
Attendance at public
meetings and monitoring of
newspaper stories inform us
there are generally lots of
people opposed to growth in
one form or another. Wheth-
er they are those seeking
to keep certain businesses
or developments from en-
croaching on their piece of
paradise or environmental-
ists, there is never a short-
age of protesters to develop-
ment.
Two Florida attorneys,
Lesley Blackner and Ross
Burnaman, have unified
their opposition to unbridled
growth in the state of Flori-
da and are attempting to
pass the Florida Hometown
Democracy Amendment,
which they call a "grass-
roots, non-partisan group
who recognize that putting


the people in charge of the
places where they live is key
to a sustainable future of
our state."
The amendment would
take planning away from lo-
cal planners and elected offi-
cials and require the voters
to. decide on every compre-
hensive-plan amendment.
Those lining up to try and
keep the amendment from
the ballot include develop-
ers, chambers of commerce;
construction workers and
more. Those in favor include
the Sierra Club and the Hu-
mane Society of the United
States.
The opposition suggests
that comprehensive plan
amendments are so com-
plex the average voter can-
not comprehend the impact.
Further, they claim the al-
ready slow process to bring


development plans to frui-
tion would be even slower if
each and every change had
to be voted on by the popu-
lace.
Text taken from a website
against the amendment by
a group identified as UUCF,
which appears to be affili-
ated with the construction
industry, says:
"The nation's most
comprehensive statewide
growth management law
that requires input from
professional planners, two
public hearings, a review
and an appeals process at
the state level and numer-
ous opportunities for citi-
zens to participate in and
challenge any changes to
the Comprehensive Plan
would be replaced by ballot

"By DOTTYNIST .
A special place just east
of Gulf Breeze has the dis-
tinction of being the site of
the first tree farm in the
United States a farm for
live oaks.
Located just across the

In 1828, the U.S. govern-

Resulting from a com-
plaint, a Holiday Road busi-
ness owner has been direct-
ed to remove a roof that had
been placed over his'three
outdoor pod storage contain-
ers.
This was the only viola-
tion found on Nov. 15 by
the Walton County Code
Enforcement Board in the
case of C&J Land Company,
whose owner, Perry Wooten,
leases four bays in his Holi-
day Road building to com-
mercial businesses.
It was the opinion of the
board members that Woo-
ten's new outdoor storage
pods could not be considered
temporary storage with a
roof attached, and that as
permanent storage, they
would present a violation.
He was directed to remove
the roof from the pods with-
in 30 days or face fines to be
imposed by the board.
Walton County Code En-
forcement had charged the
company with violations in
connection with, not only
with the outdoor storage,
but with the addition of a
new business tenant, O.C.'s


Towing. The case had orgin-
ated with a complaint by
Holiday Road residents
Mike,and Shari Judkins.
In the initial Oct. 18 hear-
ing on the case, code enforce-
ment staff had maintained
that the additional tenant
had represented an expan-
sion of the business, which
they viewed as a vested non-
conforming use that could
not legally be expanded.
Lois La Seur, county
planning manager, had ex-
plained that "the extent to
which that use is grandfa-
thered (vested)," was docu-
mented by the county in
2002, consisting of four ten-
ant businesses occupying
four bays.
Currently two bays are
rented out to Carquest, one

Destin Dixie Electric, plus,
recently, O.C.'s Towing.
Code enforcement's argu-
ment was that an expansion
occurred when O.C.'s moved
into the bay occupied by
Destin Dixie Electric, split-
ting the space.
At the second, Nov. 15,
hearing, Walton County
Planning and Development


Services Director Pat Black-
shear testified, "all we're
saying is that he (Wooten)
needs to apply for develop-
ment order approval" as a
result of the new business
tenant.
Blackshear explained
that the addition of the new
tenant might not in fact vio-
late county code, depending
on impact or lack of impact
resulting from new employ-
ees, parking, loading space,
and so on.
"This is the first time
we've heard this," said at-
torney Lisa Minshew, rep-
resenting C&J Land Com-
pany.
It was Minshew's argu-
ment that C&J Land' Com-
pany, owned by Wooten
since 1994, was not a non-
conforming use. Among the
evidence she presented was
a mid-1990s court decision
that had prohibited Wal-
ton County from restricting
truck traffic to and from
businesses on the section of
Holiday Road in question.
Minshew's interpreta-
tion of the judge's order was

VIOLATION FROM FRONT


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2007


that it also prohibited the
county from "ever changing
the zoning of this property"
from the one, she explained,
that was applicable at the
time, town center.
Town center, she ex-
plained, allows not only res-
idential but light industrial
and a number of types of
businesses, with no restric-
tions on storage, tenants or
number of business occu-
pants.
Mike Burke, county legal
counsel, disputed the con-
tention that the land use
classification of the proper-
ty -could never be changed.
What would happen, he
questioned, if the property
owner requested that the
classification be changed?
Since 1996, the area
within which the property
is located has been classi-
fied as coastal center, a clas-
sification within which the
use of Wooten's property is
considered nonconforming.
Coastal center is primarily
a residential classification
allowing commercial and
workplace uses, with at-
tached restrictions aimed at
harmonizing the latter with
residential areas.
With the exception of Da-
vid Kramer, all the board


members voted to reject
Minshew's argument and
find the use a nonconform-
ing one.
However, the members
voted unanimously that the
addition of the new tenant
did not represent an expan-
sion of the nonconformity.
Their only problem involved
the roof on the storage con-
tainers.
According to the Nov. 15
board decision, the business
owner will be subject to a
$25-per-day fine if the viola-
tion with the storage pods
is not corrected within 30
days.
On Nov. 19, Mike and
Shari Judkins presented
"The Beach Breeze" with
the objection that they had
not been allowed to testify
or present evidence in the
C&J Land Company Case.

In other action at the
Nov. 15 hearing, the board'
members found Deborah
Lee Alfassa in violation for
operation of an unpermit-
ted dog boarding kennel and
cleaning service business in
her home on Delbert Lane in
Santa Rosa Beach. She was
ordered to correct violations
within 30 days or be subject
to $25-per-day fines.

SWMCD board of commissioners


discuss expanding to five members


By JEFFREY POWELL
The South Walton Mos-
quito Control District
(SWMCD) recently held a
nearly three-hour regular
board meeting on November
20. The meeting centered
primarily around two topics;
the expansion of the board of
commissioners to five mem-
bers and the hiring of a new
director.
"The SWMCD ,has re-
ceived 13 applications as of
today," said Chairman John
Magee. "We are working to
hire a new director as soon


as possible." The director's
position, has been vacant
since October 1 when past
director Gary D'Andreas'
contract was allowed to ex-
pire. There have been three
prospective applicants from
the 13 that the board will
soon interview.
The subject of board ex-
pansion was thoroughly dis-
cussed, with nearly everyone
in support of the idea except
two of the current commis-
sioners.
"In the future, we may
need to expand," said Com-


missioner Jim Crawford. "I
just don't think the time is
now." Commissioner Burke
also seemed opposed to the
idea. Commissioner Magee
was in favor of the move.
"We believe in open gov-
ernment and work closely
with every taxing author-
ity in Walton County," said
Walton County Taxpayers
Association representative
Bob Hudson. "We think it
is time for this board to ex-
pand. There are times when
an extra cost is called for.
This is one of those times."


The state suggests that
organizations with an annu-
al budget of $2 million have
a five-member board. The
SWCMCD annual budget is
just short of this mark.

The estimated cost of two
more board members is ap-
proximately $25,460 annu-
ally. It was also decided to
have two board meetings
per month until a new direc-
tor is found. The next board
meeting' will be at a new
time of 7 p.m. on December
4.


OAKS FROM FRONT


federal tree farm began op-
erations under the supervi-
sion of forester Henry Marie
Brackenridge, who lived on
site and experimented with
the cultivation of the live
oak tree. '
The majestic live oak,
also known by the scientific
name Quercus virginiana, is
found in salt marshes and
other coastal areas from
Virginia to Texas. Live oak
trees can grow to between 40
and 50 feet tall and cani live
for as long as 300 years.
Live oaks get their name
from their evergreen appear-
ance. The trees do lose' some
of their leaves throughout
the year, but a healthy live
oak never loses all of its
leaves at one time.
Live oaks are renowned
for their durable wood,
which at 75 pounds per cubic
foot is the heaviest among
oak trees. Live oak wood's
resistance to disease and
decay have made it an ideal
choice for shipbuilding.
,The use of live oak wood
for shipbuilding was wide-
spread in the U.S. by 1700.
This wood was the prime
choice for vessels prior to
the Civil War.
Shipwrights, also known
as "live oakers," harvested
these trees' giant branches
and trunks according to
their individual shapes and
used them for specific sec-
tions of ships. Approximate-
ly 1,000 trees were needed
to build one wooden sailing
vessel.
With the advent of iron
and steel vessels in the mid-
,nineteenth century came a
decline in the need for live
oak timber in shipbuilding.
However, in 1929, live oak
wood from the Pensacola
area was used to restore the
U.S.S. Constitution, also
known as "Old Ironsides,"
now designated as a nation-
al monument.
"While no longer vital to
defense of the United States,
the live oaks occupying the
Naval Live Oaks Area are
preserved and occupy an
honored place as part of this
native forest community.
The Naval Live Oaks
Area is now devoted to edu-
cational and recreational
purposes. Open daily from
8 a.m. to sunset, except for
Christmas Day, the Naval
Live Oaks Visitor Center of-
fers an orientation film on
the Gulf Islands National
Seashore. An interpretive
trail, the Breckenridge Na-
ture Trail, provides infor-
mation on the history and
manner of use of live oaks
for shipbuilding.
There are a number of
other hiking trails on the
property. One of those, the


Andrew Jackson Trail, has
the distinction of once be-
ing the first road connect-
ing East Florida with West
Florida, constructed during
the state's territorial days
in 1824.


Also of interest for visi-
tors to the Naval Live Oaks
Area are a covered picnic
pavilion, a picnic area with
walkways, showers, rest-
rooms, and swimming along
the shoreline.
Group camping is avail-
able on the north side of
the property for organized

boxplanning.
"Confusion and/or apathy
caused by requiring voters to
make complex land use deci-
sions will potentially inhibit
a local government's ability
to build new roads; build
new schools; expand critical
safety services (i.e. fire and
police protection); maintain
environmental areas; pre-
serve open space; protect
water supplies; manage di-
saster mitigation; and all
other land use changes that
positively affect our commu-
nities.
."Complex land use chang-
es that sometimes involve
hundreds of pages and years
to approve would be decided
at the polls. In 2003, there
were over 12,000 amend-
ments in Florida in one
county alone there were
1,300 plan amendments.
Waiting for the 'next regu-
larly scheduled election,'
which in some cases is every
two years, will make an al-
ready lengthy process of ap-
proving changes even longer
and much more uncertain.
"There are no exemp-
tions for schools, hospitals,
libraries, public safety or
other important community
amenities. Individual prop-
erty owners, small busi-
nesses, small community
organizations will be forced
to run expensive political
campaigns in order to make

simple changes to their land
or expand. Wealthy individ-
uals, communities within a
county/city and special in-
terest groups with the mon-
ey to run expensive political
campaigns will have greater
ease at influencing land use
changes on the ballot that
protect their interests at the
expense of others.
"The proposed amend-
ment will not allow local
officials and land use plan-
ning experts to make long
range plans, which balance
environmental concerns
with growth and economic
development. Loss of eco-
nomic development causes
business loss, job loss, and
the inability to create new
businesses and jobs all re-
sulting in a loss of county/
city revenue. Loss of county/


city revenue will result in
an increase in local taxes
and/or a cut in services."
Humane Society of the
United States president and
CEO Wayne Pacelle says,
"It is a ballot initiative seek-
ing to control unsustainable
sprawl and development
which destroys wildlife hab-
itat, Much of Florida's open
space has been eaten up
by rampant development,
diminishing the quality of
life for the people of Florida.
'and displacing and harm-
ing wildlife. Several species
that have served as icons
for the state are now consid-
ered rare or imperiled, often
due directly or indirectly to
habitat loss caused, by de-
velopment and road build-
ing. Your signature can help
protect Florida's wildlife,"
Pacelle notes there are
currently 58 animal species
listed by the federal gov-
ernment as threatened or
endangered, including the
Florida panther, Florida
scrub jay, gentle manatee
and several species of sea
turtles. In addition, the tiny
Key deer, the wood stork,
and the gopher tortoise are
just three of more than 100
animals recognized by the
state of Florida as imperiled
species.
"Developers are terrified
of our amendment because
it goes to the heart of their
power, their ability to con-
trol city and county commis-
sions," says Blackner, the
Palm Beach attorney who
heads Florida Hometown
Democracy.
Typing "Florida Home-
town Democracy" into any
web search engine pulls
most of this information
up, including a long list of
endorsements by a variety
of conservation groups. An
equally long list of articles
and information from the
other side will also appear.

TESTING AND FINDING LEAKS

If your water bill is higher than usual -for no apparent


reason- its time to do a little household investigating
to see if you have a leak. First, turn off all appliances
that use water such as washing machines, ice-makers,
and faucets. Then, make sure no one uses any water
for at least an hour.


That means do not use any sinks or faucets. inside or

out, and no toilet flushing. Next, go outside and check
the reading on your meter. After an hour, check the
meter again. If it has not moved then there are no leaks.
If it has, check each fixture, faucet and appliance, one
by one. Be sure to also look for any telltale puddles or
wet spots on floors or ceiling. A leak within a wall or
under a floor, left unattended, could result in serious
structural damage over a period of time. If you still
can't find the leak in the house you can step up your
investigation and try to determine if a leak is outside
the house.


i First, you will need to turn the water off where it en-
ters your home. Note the reading on the water meter
and then take a break. Later, check the meter again
and see if the reading has changed. If the reading has
changed then you have found the leak. If it hasn't,
then you may need to call a plumber and have him
determine if you have a leak. By taking a little time to
get to the bottom of your rising water bill, you could

save a lot of money.
