City facing



water woes


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Spring
City Council met recently to
talk utilities. A water and
sewer franchise workshop
was held on November 27
with Peters Municipal As-
sociates, Inc. to discuss the
future management of the
city's water and sewer de-
partment and the areas they
service.
A preliminary executive
summary was given to the
Council members outlining
issues the city is facing with
water usage. The summary
covers a 20-year planning
period and describes water
system deficiencies involv-
ing supply, storage, distri-
bution and fire protection.
The summary also provided

restrict

height
By DOTTYNIST
After a number of years'
consideration of the possi-
bility, the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners on Nov. 27 adopted
an ordinance restricting
the height of new buildings
north of the bay to a maxi-
mum of 50 feet.
As part of the decision,
the ordinance will sunset in
one year. The commissioners
also indicated willingness to
let variances from that limit
be considered during that
time.
The 50-foot height limit
was already in existence
south of the bay. The Nov.
27 decision extends that

Charles Peters and Greg
Stevens headed up the work-
shop informing the Council
that the focus of the new
franchise agreement will be
mostly directed toward en-
compassing the north and
south sides of DeFuniak.
Without the agreement, the
utilities for the city extends
only five miles beyond the
city limits. With the agree-
ment, the city's reach would
head south, meeting with
Freeport's franchise area.

courthouse lawn


NEW BUILDINGS like this one in a neighboring county,
taller than 50 feet in height, will not be allowed in Walton
County for at least one year, following a Nov. 27 decision of,
the Walton County Board of County Commissioners. Excep-
tions may include north-of-the-bay development proposals
for which variances are granted. The height ban will also
apparently not apply to a 20-plus-story condo proposed for
Jolly Bay Road in the Freeport area, since that proposal is
already in process.

Walton County's tradi-
tional Christmas display on
'the courthouse lawn is to
look slightly different this
year due to a Nov. 27 deci-
sion of the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC)..
Sharing the space, pos-
sibly for the first time, will
be secular symbols of the
Christmas season such as
Frosty the Snowman.
The decision was in re-
sponse to a July 2007 letter
from Americans United for
Separation of Church and
State. In the letter, Richard
Katskee, assistant legal di-
rector for the organization,
stated that a citizen com-
plaint had been received
regarding the county's "ex-
clusively Christian" nativ-
ity display, which has tradi-
tionally consisted of a creche
with Mary, Joseph, the baby
Jesus, shepherds, wise men
and animals.
Katskee's letter charged
that the display represent-
ed a violation of the First


Amendment's Establish-
ment Clause mandating
governmental neutrality
"between religion and reli-
gion and between religion
and nonreligion."
The letter also cited casq
law dealing with the issue.
including a U.S. Supremeq
Court decision barring a
government from featuring
exclusively Christian reli-
gious elements in a holiday
display, on the grounds that
the display had the effect of
"endorsing a patently Christ
tian message." .
"We are writing to y64
'at this time to request that
the unconstitutional creche
display not be erected again
this year, thus eliminating
the need for legal action by
County residents to have a
unlawful display removed.

By CHRIS MANSON
Jean Harvey, Rettha
French, and Juanita Jack-
son brought their complaints
about Walton County Coun-
cil on Aging (COA) Director
Kay Brady before the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) last
Tuesday.
Their agenda submission,
dated Nov. 20, called for the
"immediate resignation or
termination" of Brady based
on affidavits signed by em-
ployees and elders of Walton
County, and "a physician
that no longer helps our el-
ders due to Kay Brady."
Minutes from the last COA
board of directors meeting
were also submitted.
Harvey informed the BCC
that she had made copies of
the affidavits for each of the
Commissioners to read. "She
openly admitted that elders
go two weeks or more with-
out baths," said Harvey, re-
ferring to a special meeting


of the COA board held the
.previous afternoon. "I know
she has a lot of responsibili-
ties, but seniors don't de-
serve to be neglected. A lot
of them are neglected. She
admitted she made elders
and employees cry."
Harvey also brought up
the 200-plus frozen meals
cut from the COA's Meals on
Wheels program. "We have
seniors eating cat food and
rice. That's not acceptable."
Harvey added that when
she began distributing food
baskets as part of the Senior
Tree of Hope, Brady told her
that none of the baskets
were to go to "her" seniors.
Harvey also said that
when bringing the com-
plaints and signed state-
ments to the attention of the
COA board, board chairman
Gene Ryan refused to look
at any of the statements un-
less they were notarized.
"What steps can we take
to have (Brady) suspended?"


asked Harvey. "We can't get
any answers from the (COA)
board of directors. We just
need something done. This
is not an attack on Kay Bra-
dy. You were our next step."
French said Ryan had
"blocked" her with his refus-
al to accept the documents.
"We are here on behalf of
seniors. We are fighting for
elders every which way we
can," said French. "Please
take the affidavits serious-
ly."
Jackson, identifying her-
self as a former COA case
manager, arrived late and
told the BCC, "I'm not go-
ing to waste your time, but I
have a couple observations.
I've gotten a really good
education at the last two
(COA) board meetings. I al-
most feel the need to be an
advocate for the COA board
members after what I've
seen."
Jackson said Harvey at-
tempted to give the letter


from the physician to COA
board member Harold Car-
penter, but Ryan would
not consider having the
document read. Jackson
described the COA board
chairman as "hotheaded."
"I had spoken to Carpen-
ter about how boards are
run and maintaining or-
der," said Jackson. "It's not
my understanding that the
chairman of the board was
there to dictate and make
all the decisions."
Jackson added that she
felt the COA board was
"kind of a one-man show. I
felt bad for Mr. Carpenter,
because I think he really
wanted to read that letter."
She said that at the COA
board's regular monthly
meeting during which Jack-
son and others initially
voiced their grievances
against Brady, "we were
each given five minutes."
Jackson said that was not
sufficient.


BCC

Jackson said she witm
nessed an incident of el-
der abuse at, an assisted
living facility and reported
it to Brady. "I knew it was;
wrong. She did not discuss
that (during the COA boa i.
meeting). She discussed nOe
as an employee and us(i
typical tactics to avoid ig
sues." :
There are a lot of senif
citizens without family $
the area who rely on tl
COA, said Jackson. "Sonw
of these issues can't be me4
sured by a checkbook or
spreadsheet."
Jackson concluded
telling the BCC she was in it
for the long haul. "Changes
need to be made," she said.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander noted that
the COA itself was not un-
der the BCC's direct su-
pervision. She asked Ken.

'All Creatures Great and Small'
their own. are euthanized


By ALICIA LEONARD
Mahatma Gandhi once
said, "The greatness of a na-
tion and its moral progress
can be judged by the way its
animals are treated." One
local resident has taken the
initiative to work for those
who have four legs, but no
ability to speak on their own
behalf.
Walton County has been
without an animal shelterfor
over Five years now. Laurie
Hood, founder of Alaqua An-
imal Refuge (AAR), and the
Walton C:u ,ll y Commission
is working to change that
for some lost and unwanted
pets.
In the past, when an ani-
mal was picked up in Wal-
Ston County by Animal Con-
: trol, they were transported
Sto a private :'-wttiy in Chip-
j ley where they were eutha-
7 nized within seven days (if
" not claimed), 'Thousands of
animals, 1:rn 1.h no fault of


without ever having an op-
portunity to find a new
home," said Hood.
On November 27, the
Commission voted unani-
mously to keep adoptable
animals inside Walton
County with the help of
Hood's refuge. Animal con-
trol will now contact Hood
daily regarding pickups.
The fee of $39.98 that had
been paid to the facility in
Chipley will now be paid to
Hood's refuge until the ani-
mal can be placed in a new
"forever home."
The short-term goal of
Alaqua Animal Refuge is to
provide these animals with
a possible future. Alaqua
provides medical attention,
behavioral evaluation and
ensures all animals are up
to date on their vaccina-
tions. Animals for. adop-
tion are spayed or neutered
when they reach the correct
age.


According to its website,
"Alaqua Animal Refuge has
a long-term goal to build a
private animal refuge. We
will establish a professional
non-profit organization that
breaks the current non-
profit animal rescue mold
in terms of its operation and
the quality and design of its
facility. We will promote an
effective ongoing education-
al message to the communi-
ty and all pet owners. All fi-
nancial and labor resources
will focus on effectively plac-
ing adoptable animals into
forever homes and on educa-
tion to reduce the number of
animals reaching shelters."
Alaqua Animal Refuge
opened its doors almost a
year ago and, since that
time, Hood has placed 600
animals in new homes. Hood
had been making the trek
to Chipley for the last year
every week to find animals
picked up in Walton County
p


AK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2007


and bring them back to Free-
port to get them ready for
adoption or be recovered by
their owners. Hood's refuge
paid all expenses for these
animals until the county's
decision. Hood hopes that
all of the contracts will be
signed and effective by Jan-
uary 1, 2008.
Hood started the refuge
when a friend's pet died and
Hood suggested she go to the
shelter to adopt a new one.
"My friend told me we didn't
have a shelter here and I
was just amazed. I knew
something had to .be done.
I've been an animal lover all
of my life and I couldn't bear
the thought of all of these
animals being euthanized
with no chance of adoption."
The refuge covers 10
acres and is run solely on
donations. There are guide-
lines one must meet to pass
adoption criteria and there
is a 24-hour waiting period
after adoptions.
Hood is excited over the
backing from the Commis-
sion and has nothing but
praise for the Animal Con-
trol officers out beating
the streets every day, "Our
Animal Control people here
are just great and do an
outstanding job and I really
want to work with the coun-
ty every way possible," said
Hood.
"This was a great Christ-
mas present from the
Commission to our animal
friends," said Hood, "It's a
step in the right direction.
I also hope more people can
become aware of the situa-
tion and help us to overcome
it."
About 120 animals, in-
cluding fluffy kittens and
adorable pups, are still liv-
ing at the refuge and can be
viewed at www.aarflorida.
com. Donations of money,

time and all things pet-
related, including blankets
and cleaning supplies, are
always welcome or maybe
you could give the gift of a
new home to one of these de-
serving pets for Christmas.

Ponce de Leon woman


killed in parking lot


Alcohol may have been a
factor in the Nov. 29 death
of a Ponce de Leon woman.
DeFuniak Springs Police
(DFSPD) investigators re-
port that Wilma L. Ott, 25,
of Ponce de Leon died after
being struck by a motor ve-
hicle, operated by Candace
Marie Farrior, 24, of De-
Funiak Springs. The inci-
dent occurred in the park-
ing lot of Oh Suzannah's, a
bar and liquor store located
on U.S. 90 in DeFuniak
Springs.
DFSPD Lt. Gregory K.
Gandy reported that at
around 11:53 p.m. on Nov.
29, DFSPD officers respond-
ed to a call of a vehicular
accident with injuries at
Oh Suzannah's. Witnesses
told the officers that Ott and
Farrior had been in a "verbal
and physical altercation."
Farrior was seated in the
driver's seat of her vehicle
when Ott reportedly leaned
in and struck her. Farrior
allegedly backed up, caus-
ing Ott to be caught under
the car, then backed anoth-
er 20 feet, striking a parked
car, then drove forward over
Ott before leaving the park-
ing lot. Ott was lying in the
parking lot when officers ar-
rived. They received emer-
gency life-saving assistance
from "an unidentified Army
Medic" on the scene. Ott was
transported by AirHeart to
Walton Regional Hospital,
but was pronounced dead on
arrival.
Farrior was traced via
her vehicle's tag, and taken
to Walton Regional Hospital
for evaluation. Police took
into custody. The incident is


under investigation by the division, and charges are
DFSPD's traffic homicide pending.

Leaping tall buildings

in a single bound

By RON KELLEY

I've been following the issue of county-wide height re-
strictions pretty closely and I have to say that I've been
somewhat disappointed, so far.
For several years, there has been a ordinance prohibiting
any building taller than 50 feet from being built in south
Walton and I think it's one of the best rules the Walton
County Commission have ever made.
Although it came a bit late to prevent a few notable ex-
ceptions, it arrived better late than never. Had those long-
ago commissioners not displayed true political courage and
enacted the height restriction, our coastline would look just
like most others full of tacky, over-priced high-rise condos
that make their developers rich, but do little more than de-
stroy the beaches they are sitting on and ensure that no one
else will ever have the opportunity to gaze upon the beach
or surf.
Can you ever recall hearing a single person say, "Gosh, I
hope they put up a skyscraper right in front of my house so
I don't have to endure seeing the sky anymore"?
Me, either. The only people that think it's a good idea are
the developers who want to build one so they can make a lot
of money. Period.
Now then, think about all the places in Walton County
you love. Now think about having a skyscraper sitting there
in the middle of it.
Exactly.
Can you imagine a single spot along our beautiful Choc-
tawhatchee Bay that would be improved by a skyscraper?
How about in Bruce, Red Bay or Portland? Maybe we need
a few in Freeport or DeFuniak Springs? Wouldn't one look
great on Baldwin Avenue? I'm sure the people in Mossy
Head and Paxton are breathlessly awaiting a high-rise in
their neighborhoods, too.
The ordinance is working beautifully in south Walton.
Ask those residents if they'd like to see the restriction lift-
ed? (You might want to cover your ears first.) Then doesn't
the rest of Walton County deserve the same protection? Or
is protection only afforded to a chosen few?
Now the commissioners have approved the ordinance for
north Walton, too. So, why am I still disappointed?
SThe rule will sunset in only one year and there's a clause
built in allowing them to grant exceptions to the rule. One
exception, on Jolly Bay Road, has already slipped in under
the wire and I'll bet it makes no one very jolly except the
developers, again.
Thank you, commissioners, for your wishy-washy ap-
proach. Haven't you all learned that by trying to please ev-
eryone, you simply ensure that you please no one? If it's a
question of votes and when is it not there are a lot more
residents than developers. Sell out, spoil a community with
high-rises and see how many residents will still vote for
you.
Not tempted by campaign cash or worried about being
re-elected for life? Wonderful, then protect us simply be-
cause it's the right thing to do.

Editor:
My letter is in response to the recent article regarding
the proposed fence at Magnolia Cemetery. What a wonder-
ful tribute to Jim! I would like to thank Jim McCormick's
family for their efforts to improve the cemetery for all who
visit. I know I also speak for others when I say that your
act of generosity.is greatly appreciated. I would also like to
thank city management for acknowledging the need and al-
lowing the improvement.
I have become quite concerned over the years by the vis-
ible decline in the cemetery. Why isn't DeFuniak Springs
management taking more responsibility? Currently, city
management seems more concerned with keeping the U.S.
331 median and other highways maintained and land-
scaped, rather than doing the same for our historic cem-
etery. It's a disgrace that several headstones, including
former mayor John Lawson's, have a large anthill that
are threatening to make them crooked. There are numer-
ous gravesites that were marked solely by a funeral home
marker that has been destroyed by careless mowing.
The current state of the cemetery is not due to a lack
of staff or resources. I visit the cemetery at least twice a
week and have noticed that a majority of the time I see only
one employee working while the other employees are in the
"work shed" or not on the premises at all. I have personally
thanked Mr. Balcom for the work he does there. There is an
abundance of work that needs to be addressed, i.e. faucets
in need of repair, pruning, mowing, edging, weed eating,
.weed extermination on,gravel graves, ant extermination,
etc. in the woods at the north end of Park Street in the
cemetery. What happened to the city's promise to provide
perpetual care?
It is my opinion that city management should not be
asking for community help to clean up Magnolia Cemetery
when the community is already paying for that service. The
city should truly honor its fallen veterans by keeping their
resting places pristine all year. long, not just on Veteran's
Day. I am appalled that city management would use the
memory of its veterans to have volunteers do what its paid
employees are already responsible for providing. Maybe
Magnolia Cemetery needs to be managed by the caring vol-
unteer community rather than by our apathetic city gov-
ernment!

Editor:
I would like to know what has happened to today's so-
ciety. Folks are becoming unfriendly, and no one seems to
want to take your word for anything. Back in the day, when
you were talking to friends or family members, they actu-.
ally listened to you and were genuinely concerned about
your opinions. They looked you in the eye during conversa-
tion and never tried to talk to you over the television set.
For instance, I recently ran into an old friend of mine
and she was setting up a new computer. I was excited to
share the experience with her because I recently did the
same thing. My old computer was 10 years old and it was a
little out of date and behind the times. I figured it out and
only had one difficulty and I figured that out by myself also.
I thought thatI would share the story with her for conver-
sation purposes. Her reply was rude, and she intentionally
tried to make me feel stupid. Did any one not tell her that
it was impolite to make others feel stupid?
I am finding more and more each day that it is socially
acceptable to be rude to others. I would like to say that if
during my journey here on earth I have been rude to you or
had a seemingly bad attitude, or gave the wrong impression
of myself, I am truly sorry.
I have been taking mental notes all week on my behavior
and I have come short on the politeness scale myself. Do we
get too busy, or too involved within our own lives that we
can't take the time to listen, and believe one another when
we speak?
i Do we automatically assume that we are the only ones,
with an opinion or the only ones that are right? If so, then a a
gojod dose of kindness and a rededication to the Lord might
be the answer. These are trying times. Our country is at:,,
war, our soldiers are being maimed and killed, our society
has fallen upon stressful times, to say the least, but our
love for our family, friends, co-workers, and our 'country,
should not be taken for granted.
We should remember to treat each other like we want
to be treated. We should also remember that we are not
the only ones occupying the earth and showing a little love
and giving to others just might make a difference in all of
us. Stop and smell the roses while they are still blooming,
because blooms fade' and fall off the vine. The bright side is
they get the chance to renew themselves and bloom again,
and that is what we should do, prepare to bloom again, take
a fresh new look at ourselves, be good to one another, and
remember that the world is occupied with people in need of
kindness, love, and respect
I want to leave you with the hope and joy of the new year,
and when you meet me on the street, by all means, know
that you will receive a friendly hello and a warm smile be-
cause you deserve it. The next time I feel the need to be
rude, I will stop and take into consideration others' feelings,
and remember that I am not the only person on earth.

By JEFFREY POWELL
"This project may be legal,
but it is not compatible with
quiet, country living. All of
the truck traffic has and will
continue to be detrimental
to our lifestyle," said Gwynn
Baker. "Mining is an indus-
trial use of the land, not ag-
ricultural. We do not want
to fight. We just want a nice
neighborhood."
Baker and approximately
forty other Rock Hill-area
residents met on November
27, at the Freeport Com-
munity Center to voice their
concerns about a proposed
borrow pit (clay and sand
pit) on Ed Brownfield Road,
just south of Rock Hill Road.
in central Walton County.
Land owner Lee Perry is
proposing to open the pit,
which he estimates will cov-
er a 50- to 60-acre. area. He
said the project could take
;O years..to complete and
would remove 2.5 million
cubic yards of material. He
also suggested that close to
30 truck trips per day would
take place during operation-
al times.
Many concerns were
voiced during the meeting.
Among those concerns were
increased truck traffic, de-
valuation of area property,
storm water runoff and the
eventual use of the pit that
would be created by the
project.
When asked directly
whether or not the pit
would ultimately become a
construction and demolition
dump, Lee was unwilling to
make any guarantees of the
future uses.
"I did not make the rules.
There are going to be pits in
this area," Perry said. "I am
trying to go about this legal-
ly."
Lee made assurances that
everything would be done to
prevent runoff from reach-
ing two nearby creek heads
and that the area would
be reclaimed upon comple-
tion. His comments however
were taken with much scep-
ticism.


"You started this meeting
off with a prayer," one long-
time resident commented.


"God is the one you will an-
swer to if you do not keep
your promises."

service to Walton County.
During 'the presentation,
Skipper said, 'I learned
true customer service when
I worked under Mr. Little as
a clerk. He taught us how to
go above and beyond to as-
sist our customers and that
is still a priority in our office


today."
Skipper thanked Little
for the strong foundation
he laid during his years as
tax, collector. While much
has changed in regard to
the technology and the col-
lection of taxes, Skipper
expressed that serving the
needs and best interest of
the public has not changed.
Little thanked his wife,
Reacy, for her dedicated
service and hard work dur-
ing his tenure as tax collec-
tor. "I couldn't have done it
without my better half," re-
marked Little.
Present .for the special
occasion was Little's wife,
Reacy; son, Ken; grand-
daughter, Kit Blackerby;

-As a healthcare provider, my husband Danzian and I were very
selective when deciding where to have our newL baby.

We are thrilled that iw chose The Center For New Life
at Fort WIalton Beach Medical Center.


From the moment you enter this. facility, it's obvious that patient safety
and comfort was paramount in the design.

It is also comforting to know that the all new
Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is just down the hall, and NOT out of town.

By JEFFREY POWELL
Members of the Musco-
gee Nation returning from
the Thanksgiving weekend
were surprised to find that
most of their electrical ser-
vice, the lift station to the
septic tank and propane
heater were not functional.
Upon closer inspection, it
was discovered that many
feet of electrical wire, as
well as copper tubing from
the propane tank, had been
stolen.
"We are very disappoint-
ed that someone would do


damage to our local histori-
cal building that we work
so hard to maintain," said
Muscogee Nation Treasurer
Zera Denson. "Hopefully, the
friends of the Muscogee Na-
tion will come together and
help us with the expenses
this crime has created."
The Muscogee Nation is
located in Bruce and main-
tains its headquarters in a
100-year-old schoolhouse.
The Walton County
Sheriffs Department is in-
vestigating the copper theft
and has stepped up patrols


of the area. The theft of cop-
per throughout the area has
been on the increase due to
the high value of the mate-
rial.
"The tribe is poor and we
worked hard to restore this
building for visitors and res-
idents to learn from and en-
joy our local Native Ameri-
can history," said tribal
Chairwoman Ann Tucker.
Anyone with any infor-
mation concerning this
crime should call the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
at 892-1321.

commission. A representa-
tive of the Florida Attorney
General's Office (A.G.) con-
firmed the commission's ac-
tion, and furnished a copy of
the accepted stipulation.
The commission's ac-
ceptance of the stipulation
resolves the question of
what non-criminal ethical


storm water cross-drains

as some of the old signage.
The majority of this work
was scheduled to begin No-

During the overall recon-

sanctions, if any, Burgess
would receive as the result
of his 2005 plea to one mis-
demeanor count of "alter-
ing, defacing or falsifying a
document" while serving as
city marshal. In August of
2005, Burgess voluntarily
resigned, paid a fine, and
surrendered his criminal
justice certifications for two
years from the date of his
plea.

The Ethics Commission
then looked into the matter.
At the Nov. 30 hearing in
Tallahassee, the commission
voted to impose a $3,500 fine
and issue a "public censure
and reprimand," as specified
in the proposed stipulation.
The A.G.'s representative
said that, having agreed to
accept the stipulation, the
commission's only remain-
ing concern was to collect
the fine.

I COMMUNITY CALENDAR I|

THE FREEPORT LIBRARY will be accepting donations of canned
goods and any non-perishable food items through December 20 for
local needy families. All collected food items will be turned over
to Sharing and Caring Hands, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in
DeFuniak Springs.
"Our team thought this was a good project to take on," says branch
library manager Nicole Shinskie, "since the library is conveniently
located for most people in the southern part of the county." She
says the Freeport Library 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 from Nov.11 through Dec. 20. The donation
box will be clearly labeled and placed in the entrance foyer of the
library. Library hours are Monday -Wednesday, 10 a.m. 6 p.m.,
Thursday, -10 a.m. 8 p.m., and Friday Saturday, 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 a part of that bridge, and
we hope the citizens of our community will pull together and be a
part of this holiday effort."

Tax Collector's Office gathering gifts for needy children


The staff of the Walton
County Tax Collector's Of-
fice (WCTC) has partnered
with the Department of Chil-
dren and Families (DCF) to
provide Christmas gifts to
area children in need. The
names, ages, and wish lists
of approximately 20 local
children were provided to


WCTC by DCF.
An angel tree displaying
the names, ages, and wish
lists of the children are lo-
cated in the lobbies of both
the north and south Walton
office. Members of the com-
munity are welcome to come
into the office and adopt an
"angel" and share in the sea-


son by providing Christmas
gifts for a child.
"Our employees have big
hearts and enjoy giving back
to the community," said
Rhonda Skipper, tax collec-
tor. "Children are especially
on our minds at Christmas
time and it is such a joy to
know that we are helping


make Christmas a little
brighter for some of them."
The angel tree has been
well received by customers.
Several of the "angels" have
already been adopted. Area
individuals wishing to par-
ticipate are encouraged to
come by the office to select
an angel. The wrapped gifts


are due back to the tax col-
lector's Office by December
17.
In addition, the tax collec-
tor's employees are spread-
ing more holiday cheer by
forgoing their traditional
interoffice gift exchange.
Employees decided instead
to purchase carriage rides


around Lake DeFuniak for
residents of the Chautauqua
Rehabilitation and Nursing
Center are physically able
to get out and enjoy Christ-
mas Reflections, the annual
holiday light display in De-
Funiak Springs.
For more information,
call 850-892-8121.


Pridgen responds to


reporters on Nativity Scene


EMPLOYEES of the Walton County Tax Collector donated money to purchase carriage
rides around Lake DeFuniak for residents of the Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing
Center to view Christmas Reflections.


COMPANY FROM FRONT


sible responses to the issue
raised by Americans United
for Separation of Church
and State.
Henry had reseached case
law on the matter and said
that the Supreme Court had
indeed ruled against gov-
ernments' ability to sponsor
displays "endorsing one reli-
gion."
He explained that, how-
ever, the court had ruled in
another case that a Chris-
tian display was permissible
with inclusion of a variety
of other types of displays,
whereby a "winter holiday"
scenario was created.
Henry noted that several


courses of action were pos-
sible, including: not put-
ting the nativity scene up;
putting it up as before and
facing a lawsuit which the
county would almost cer-
tainly lose and which would
cost considerable funds to
defend; or declaring the
courthouse lawn a "public
forum" where anyone who
so desired could put up their
own holiday display.
Henry said that the lat-
ter was the course of action
taken by Polk County. The
surprisingresult, he told the
commissioners, was that the
only display put up by mem-
bers of the public was one of


the Zoroastrian faith.
The solution that Henry
identified as a better one
- and the one he recom-
mended in order to avoid.
litigation, was to add secu-
lar symbols of the Christ-
mas season such as Frosty
the Snowman alongside the
traditional manger scene.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander commented
that her initial reaction had
been to ignore the letter
from the organization and
proceed as usual with the
display. She said that, after
some thought, she conclud-
ed that doing that would not
be in keeping with her fiscal
responsibility to her constit-
uents.
She said she had re-


Area and out-of-state
news agencies descended
on Walton County to ask
questions about the nativity
scene traditionally displayed
on the front lawn of the Wal-
ton County Courthouse. In
response, Commissioner
Ken Pridgen issued the fol-
lowing statement.

"On Tuesday,, Novem-
ber 27, 2007, the Walton
County Commission heard
about a written complaint
by Americans United for
Separation of Church and
State regarding the display
of the nativity scene on our
courthouse grounds in his-
toric DeFuniak Springs,
Florida. The display has
been a part of our county's


searched putting up the
manger scene across the
road from the courthouse at
the old Catholic church, and
that the owner of that prop-
erty, George Ralph Miller,
had given his permission.
However, Henry's opinion
was that changing the loca-
tion of the nativity would
not resolve the issue, since
the display is owned by the
county.

Following a motion by
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows, the com-
missioners voted unani-
mously to follow Henry's
recommendation to put up
the nativity scene, plus the
snowman and perhaps other
holiday symbols.


Christmas decorations for
decades, and I believe most
of us see Christmas as a cul-
tural phenomenon in Wal-
ton County.
"As a growing Walton
County community, our
Board of County Commis-
sioners, who represent all
of the taxpayers of Walton,
County, welcome the ex-
panding diversity of our
citizens who chose to move
here and make this special
and unique part of Florida
their home. Because many
of us hold our faith so close
to our heart, we respect the
significance of this special
time of the year and join our
citizens in celebrating it.
"Our understanding
Tuesday evening from our
county attorney is that our
nativity scene, if continued
to be displayed alone on our


courthouse grounds dur-
ing the holiday season, is in
violation of federal law. Our
legal option was either to
remove it completely or to
include other secular deco-
rations on our courthouse
grounds along with the na-
tivity scene. We unanimous-
ly chose to include other
secular displays along with
the nativity scene so all of
our citizens Christian and
non-Christian feel their lo-
cal government respects and
includes them as part of the
Walton County family dur-
ing such a meaningful time
of the year.
"We appreciate this mat-
ter being brought to our at-
tention since it allows us to
emphasize how much we
appreciate serving all of the
people of our great commu-
nity."

RESTRICT
status to the whole- of the
county. Before voting, the
commissioners heard com-
ments from eight citizens
with a spectrum of opinions
on the proposal.
"This is going to put us at
a disadvantage," said Choc-
taw Beach homeowner Ed
Bradley, who said he also
spoke for a number of other
citizens in his community.
Bradley said he agreed
that there shouldn't be
100-story condos north of
the bay, but he was not op-
posed to smaller multistory
buildings.
"One size does not fit all...
what's wrong with a four,
five or six-story office build-
ing?" asked south Walton
County resident and former
county commissioner Tim
Pauls.
"The beauty of this area
is what makes it special;"
said Rich Adams, a six-year
resident who had moved to
the area from south Florida,
"I suggest you adopt this or-
dinance."
"Urban sprawl is not the
way to go, vertical is the
way to go," asserted county
resident and local attorney
Dana Matthews.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, said she
often hears from residents
that they' want protection
from large condo develop-
ments.
Citizen Alan Ficarra en-
couraged setting a height
limit to allow time for mas-
ter planning and workshops
so that areas where more
height would be appropriate
could be identified.
South Walton County res-
ident Ed Moreau suggested
adopting a height limit for
residential uses only.
"I think we're all trying
to get to the same place,"
observed District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander.
However, she warned
against letting the matter
"drag on so long that it gets
lost in the shuffle."


FROM FRONT
Blackshear brought up
the possibility of gathering
input on the building height
issue in conjunction with
a series of 30 visioningg"
meetings that the planning
department is planning to
hold countywide beginning
early next year. The meet-
ings will be used as a tool to
prepare for the state-man-
dated evaluation and ap-
praisal report (EAR,) which
measures the success of the
county's growth manage-
ment documents in meet-
ing the goals of citizens and
property owners.
"It's all about compatibil-
ity," Blackshear said, add-
ing that issues to be dealt
with in considering build-
ing height include buffering
methods and ways to pro-
tect neighboring properties
from "shading" due to taller
buildings.
,"I don't think you can pro-
vide any buffer for a 60-sto-
ry building," Comander in-
terjected.
Meadows moved to ad-
dress the north-of-bay
height issue as part of the
EAR process, but there was
no second to her motion.
Calling the proposed
50-foot height limit proposal
"a tool to motivate us," Dis-
trict 3 Commissioner Larry
Jones moved to put it in
place for one year. He pro-
posed that during that time
the county would look at ar-
eas that it would be appro-
priate to exempt from the
restriction. His motion was
approved 4-1, with Mead-
ows voting no.
Blackshear indicated that
the ordinance would not ap-
ply to the proposed Jolly
Bay Road highrise, since
that application is already
in process. However, plan-
ning staff have commented
in the past that the land- use
classification of the property
for which the development
is proposed, rural village,
would be unlikely to allow
approval of a high-rise con-
dominium.

WATER FROM FRONT


This franchise will only
cover water and sewage, not
gas utilities.
The Council was informed
that the city is losing nearly
20 percent of its average
daily capacity. Stevens
said they were averaging a
daily loss of 18.4 percent or
282,237 gallons per day. No
one could say where the wa-
ter is going or exactly how
it is disappearing. Charles
Peters was quick to point
out that this was water loss
that was not reaching the
meters, so citizens were not
being charged for the loss.
However, he said, it's an is-
sue that needs to be recti-
fied. Peters told the Council,
"Anything not going through
the meters is a loss."
Old and substandard wa-
ter lines were offered as the
likely reason for the loss.
The areas around the Lake-
yard and the historic dis-
trict were suggested as the
Areas most likely where the
water losses are occurring. A
computer model that the en-
gineers are building might
show where the losses are
most concentrated.
The summary outlined
population growth over the
last five years. The summa-
ry noted the utility depart-
ment has seen an annual
increase of about 92 custom-
ers per year within the city's
expanded water service
area. Based on 2.35 persons/
household (per year 2000
Census data), this would
equate to an annual water
service area population of
216 persons per year.
The existing facilities that
the city owns and operates
include five production wells
and three elevated storage
tanks. The wells produce a
total maximum capacity of
3,722,400 gallons per day,
with the storage tanks pro-
viding a combined storage
capacity of 1,150,000 gal-
lons.
The study stated that cur-
rently there is a 674,000-gal-


COMPLAINTS
- FROM FRONT
rector, why over 200 meals
had been cut.
"This has not been com-
municated to me," said Lit-
tle.
"I would like an answer,"
said Comander. Little brief-
ly explained the structure
of the agencies that oversee
the COA the Area Agency .
on Aging (AAA) in Pensa-
cola and the Department of
Elder Affairs and said the
AAA was looking into the
matter of the frozen meals.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell offered to send
a letter to the COA asking
about the meal reductions.
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen suggested
that Brady appear before
the BCC to answer their
questions.
"The only leverage we
have is funding," said Dis-
trict 3 Commissioner Larry
Jones. "We need account-
ability of those funds. My
concern is that we're meet-
ing (seniors') needs through
funds were providing. Tak-
ing money away won't help
anyone."
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows suggested
that Ryan issue a formal
response from the COA
board and address the BCC
to "clear some things up."
Meadows, who is also the
BCC representative on the
COA board, suggested sep-
arating the complainants'
various concerns.
Jones noted that the BCC
needed to exercise caution in
the position it takes. "They
may say they disagree with
these people," he said, refer-
ring to Harvey, French, and
Jackson. "But let's do what-
ever we need to do."
"We provided money,"
said Commander. "How is
it being spent? We want ac-
countability."
Brannon asked Little
what percentage of the
COA's funding comes from
the BCC. Little said 15 per-
cent, and added that the
rest of the COA's money
comes from state and feder-
al funds. Jones asked Little
if he would gather the affi-


lon per day deficiency with
respect to daily demands.
This deficiency is expected
to increase to 1,808,000
gallons per day by the year
2027. There is currently
a 190,000-gallon storage-
capacity deficiency, which
would also increase to a
734,000-gallon deficiency
by the year 2027. However,
these storage requirements
might be reduced when the
system has sufficient capac-
ity and stand-by power to
supplement peak demands
of the system.
A water-use permit analy-
sis showed that on March 4,
2006 and June 11, 2006, the
system exceeded its maxi-
mum allowable withdrawal
of 2,400,000 gallons dur-
ing a single day. Addition-
ally, the data showed that
in June 2006, the combined
monthly withdrawal exceed-
ed the permitted 53,000,000
gallons. The study stated
that as the water system's
demand continues to grow,
it's likely the number of
permit violations related to
allowable withdrawals will
increase. Thus, it was rec-
ommended that consider-
ation be given to a request
for a permit revision to al-
low greater withdrawals.
Additional recommended
solutions from the study
includes construction of
three 500-gpm wells. These
wells would provide an ad-
ditional 1,080,000 gallons
per day. Recommendations
also call for the construction
of one 250,000-gallon'capac-
ity storage tank. If this is
implemented, it might pro-
vide sufficient capacity with
stand-by power to supple-
ment peak demands of the
system until, possibly, the
year 2017.
The franchise would be in
effect for the next 30 years
if approved. The issue will
have to go before the Wal-
ton County Commission for
approval before moving for-
ward.


davits and letters and move
up the chain to "whomever
we need to rectify this situa-
tion."
Comander made a motion
that the BCC write to the
COA and request account-
ability of the funds provided
and an answer to the mys-
tery of why over 200 frozen
meals had been cut. The mo-
tion carried unanimously.
Meadows urged Little to
work with the county's legal
department to find out what
steps "the folks filing com-
plaints" need to take next.

iffs Santa Patrol and Dis-

Bronson announces

sweep for recalled toys


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced his de-
partment will do a sweep of
stores this holiday season
looking for toys that have
been recalled.
The special sweep is be-
ing done following a spate
of recalls involving popular
toys. The U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) has issued recall
alerts on more than 70 toys
in 2007. Problems have in-
cluded lead paint exposure,
choking and strangulation
hazards, sharp edges, and
laceration dangers.
"There have been so many
recent recalls, it is difficult
for parents and retailers
to keep up," Bronson said.
"Having an extra set of eyes
looking out for dangerous
toys will benefit everyone
involved."
Inspectors with the de-
partment's Division of Stan-
dards wjll conduct the state-
wide survey beginning later
this week. They are check-
ing on randomly selected
toys from the list of recalled
products at locations where
they are sold. Inspectors
will each visit at least 10
stores. If they find any re-
called toys, they'll complete
a Toy Recall Store Inspec-
tion Report, including infor-
mation on the type of toy and
the number in sock. They
will also notify the manag-
ers, and give them written
recall information provided
by the Consumer Product
Safety Commission.
Department inspectors
do not have the authority to
require the stores to remove


the recalled items. How-
ever, they will recommend
removal and have the store
manager sign the inspection
report.
Bronson has also provided
consumers with a direct link
to the CPSC toy recall list
on the department web site
at http://www.doacs:state.
fl.us. Bronson is recom-
mending that parents and
other consumers review the
list to see if they have any
of the recalled toys in their
homes and to be vigilant if
they plan on buying toys at
any second-hand stores or
flea markets.
"Unfortunately, people
cannot assume that a toy is
safe just because it is made
by a well-known company,"
Bronson said. "It is now
a global marketplace and
some of the top toy manu-
facturers have been impact-
ed by the recalls this year."
Consumers who want
to notify the department
about *recalled toys for
sale can call the toll-free
hotline at 1-800-HELP-
FLA(1-800-435-73 52),
OR1-800-FLAYUDA
(1-800-352-9832).


Mini as an additional prize.
The raffle drawing will
take place at Distinctive Cy-
cles, 18291 U.S. 331 South
in Freeport. Each raffle
ticket will cost three dollars
and can be purchased at
Distinctive Cycles. All raffle
proceeds will go to the Santa
Patrol to allow them to help
more children this year. The
ATV is now on display dur-
ing business hours at Dis-
tinctive Cycles. If there
are any questions, contact
Capt. Eddie Farris at (850)

Friendship House Christmas tree lights up downtown


By CHRIS MANSON
The Brain Disorder Sup-
port Foundation (BDSF)
has been providing informa-
tion and educational ser-
vices since it was chartered
in Sep. 2004. BDSF Presi-
dent Hilda Coursey said the
foundation also provides
"friendly, compassionate as-
sistance to families" affected-
by brain disorders.
Coursey's primary goal
is to build the Friendship
House to provide respite
care, "a place you can drop a
person off for a few hours to
be taken care of. Ideally, a
warm and friendly environ-
ment pleasant and relax-
ing so the patient wants to
go there."
Coursey is raising aware-
ness of the Friendship House
with the Lights of Love tree
on Baldwin Avenue, across
from the Herald-Breeze
main offices. "It's a tribute


of love to all of the families
affected by any type of brain
disorder," she said. Friday,
she and eight other volun-
teers strung huge amounts
of lights around the 25-foot
cedar tree.
The city provides electric-
ity to light up the tree, which
was nearly blown over by
Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The
Christmas lights operate on
a timer, lighting up every
afternoon at 4:30 p.m. and
shutting off at midnight. A
garland and red ribbons ex-
tend around a small white
fence.
There are signs painted by
Deborah White, a commer-
cial artist who was injured
in an automobile accident
15 years ago. Coursey said
White suffered a 65-percent
loss of brain function but,
through extensive rehabili-
tation therapy, was able to
learn to walk, talk, and eat


again. Workers Compensa-
tion paid for the artist's pro-
fessional re-training.
"When you think about
depression, brain injury,
stroke survivors, Alzheim-
er's, Parkinson's, multiple
sclerosis, even restless leg
syndrome, almost every
family is affected by brain
disorders," said Coursey.
Coursey's mother suf-
fered from cancer that me-
tastasized to her brain. "I
couldn't leave her alone. It
was 25 hours a day."
The Friendship House is
to be constructed on the Ju-
niper Lake Road property
Coursey and her husband
have donated. The founda-
tion hopes to raise at least
$50,000. So far $13,000 has
been generated through
fundraisers like October's


Countryside Festival and
the quarterly yard sales.
Coursey is not asking for
government funding.
On Dec. 18, an open house
will be held at the Friend-
ship Cottage on 353 Juniper
Lake Road from 3-7 p.m. Re-
freshments and educational
literature will be available,
and visitors will have the
opportunity to purchase
Friendship House bricks for
$50. For more information,
call (850) 892-0565 or e-mail
BDSF@panhandle.rr.com.

DFS woman

creates the

picture-

perfect

card game

By JEFFREYPOWELL

For the past eight
months, DeFuniak
Springs resident Debby
Pozza has been trying to
perfect a card game she
calls Foto Feud. Origi-
nally, the game was just
something she and her
family enjoyed within the
confines their own home,
but after seeing the game
develop, she has decided
to go public with the ven-
ture.
"The concept originat-
ed from the desire to use
favorite family photos in
an entertaining fashion,"
Pozza said.
Pozza comes by her en-
trepreneurial spirit natu-
rally as both her father
and uncle invented games
of their own. As a mar-
keting coordinator for the
South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council (SWT-
DC) Pozza has developed
skills that have helped
her in this endeavor. "The
knowledge that I. have
gained working with the
beaches of south Walton
regarding branding and
Internet marketing have
enabled me to bring this
project to fruition," Pozza
said.
"With 'my children

Farris said, "I know
the program works. I am

self with time to pursue
my own interests," Poz-
za said. "I wanted them
to see me set a goal and
achieve it."
According to Pozza,
F6td Feud is a quick-play-
ing, easily-learned card
game that, has twelve


Foto puzzles divided into
four parts. The object for
the player .is to get all
four cards to assemble a
complete photograph.
Pozza received a copy-

months ago and Foto

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-

is to provide toys and gifts
to as many local children
as possible. They can't do
it without public support.
The Santa Patrol asks the
public to help by dropping
off new toys at the WCSO

About 10 feet away, the na-

McMillan and his assis-

with instructions on where
to plant a pair of blue ice cy-
press trees purchased from

Dedicated to all who

have lost a child

BYBRENDA WAGGONER


The loss of a child, no
matter what the circum-
.stances are, is one of the
most cruel blows a parent
can suffer. It is an out-of-
order process that brings
Consuming pain and grief.
It should be noted that
S bereaved parents do not
"--' get over the death of their
child. Nor should they be
expect to "snap back" to
the person they once were.
The death of a child is not
an illness from which they
can recover. It is a life-al-
tering change that parents
'Ded ICl1 il t'L must learn to live with. Be-
I li.jv1 O reaved parents are forced
Sto do what they see as im-
hlitve' lSt 1 'ldii lI possible. They must learn

Earth, is the day my world seemed to have ended,

on me that I have to live long enough lor the
"Fat Lady To Sing," and believe me she hasn't
begun to sing yet, but she will! Soon!
God only knows howi much my heart aches to see
your lovely smile, to feel your strong arms in a
bear hug, with a kiss on the cheek, to see a
mischievous twinkle in those beautiful brown
eyes and that loving voice saying, "I Love You
Mom."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2007


PAGE 8B


Much singing of hymns
and carols of the Christmas
season will be with us from
this time until Christmas is
past. This is only right. Many
churches never finish the
carols that are in the hym-
nal they use. Remember,
however, that Paul wrote
in Ephesians 5:19 these
words: "Singing and making
melody in your heart to the
Lord." Christmas is a good
time for singing.
There are those to whom


the singing voice is denied.
Yet it is possible for the fol-
lower of the Christ to have
a -itn iiin heart. It makes
its own melody to our living
Lord. It is not with audible
sound, perhaps, but with
the secret vibrations which
bless the soul. When we are
in tune with the Infinite,
our Lord knows the melody
of the heart.
It is the singing heart
that keeps men and wom-
en at work for the Master.


How often the drab detail
of life, the unending round
of sordid tasks, would prove
unbearable were it not for
the heart singing with the
love of the Lord. How else
can we explain the facts of
Christian history? It is what
keeps the missionary at the
proper post in torrid heat
or Arctic cold. The singing
heart should keep us all at
the task which the King,
born so long ago, has given
us.


We need not go far to
find illustrations. The life
we are living in America
today would be useless and
dreadful were it not that. in
our lives as Christians that
melody which soothes us,
summons us, and strength-
ens us day by day.

Pastors must have it as
they face their congrega-
tions. Teachers must have
it as they meet their class-
es. Parents must feel it as


they pray for their children.
The sick listen for it as they
pass the long night watches.
When we come to die its
music nerves us for the thin
veil through which we must


pass to be with the Lord.
Then one day we shall sing
"as it were a new song before
the throne." Are you ready?
Christmas is a great time to
get ready through Christ.

Bass named 2007 Florida Young Scholar


Ponce de Leon Elemen-
tary is pleased to announce
that one student has been
named a 2007 Florida
Young Scholar. The student
receiving this designation is
Delilah Carol Bass.
Delilah joins over 3,300
third-eight graders from
across Florida who received
such acclaim. Hundreds of
schools participated in the
project to select and honor
students who not only excel
academically but show that
they are well-rounded indi-
viduals. To find a qualified
individual, teachers were
asked to only consider stu-
dents with a B-average or
higher. From there, they
were asked to nominate stu-


dents who were involved in
extra-cirriculars, athletics,
participate in community
or church groups and are
involved in community ser-
vice. Students nominated
then submitted an applica-
tion to complete the pro-
cess.
Florida Young Scholars
was established to inspire
children to achieve with the
hope that it motivates stu-
dents at a young age level
to show that achievement
counts, hard work matters,
and actively participating
in school and community
events is important.
"We are very excited to
have a Florida Young Schol-
ar and to see all that Delilah


has accomplished," said
Woodrow Vaughan, prin-
cipal of Ponce de Leon El-
ementary. ''A Florida Young
Scholar is a classroom
leader today who will be one
of our country's future lead-
ers."

PDL boys earn first win


By PATRICK CASEY

Pensacola Christian
brought players with size.
Ponce de Leon had players
with speed. The result was a
66-49 victory for the Pirates
as they forced 32 turnovers
and scored many of their
points on lay-ups after turn-
overs to earn their first win


of the season.

Joe Garner scored 15
points and Jesse Paulk add-
ed 14 allowing the Pirates to
earn a District 1, Class 2A
victory at home. The Pirates
made 8-of-13 free throws
and got scoring from eight
different players and de-
feated the previously unde-


feated Warriors.

Pensacola Christian en-
tered the contest 3-0 after
knocking off Baker a few
days earlier and had the
height of twin brothers Matt
and Mike Goetsch to rely on
for their hot start. The two
Warriors led the squad in
scoring in their first three


games, but found the going
tough against a PDL team
that would not let the War-
riors guards get the ball up
the floor. PDL forced 17 first
half turnovers in building
a 40-22 halftime lead and
never stopped the pressure
as the visiting team could
not mount a comeback. PDL
led 61-33 after three quar-


ters and let the bench finish
off the contBst.
Jeremy Riche had 11
points and Jonathan An-
drews scored 10 points to
lead the Warriors.

Game Notes: PDL had
not faced Pensacola Chris-
tian since the 2002-03 sea-
son and had won the previ-


ous six meetings. PDL is in
District 1 of Class 2A and
will play Pensacola Chris-
tian, Vernon, Jay, Baker
and Freeport twice each
this season. Stacey Stafford
holds a 45-39 record at PDL
and is in his fourth season
as head coach of the squad.
PDL won the junior varsity
contest 33-31.


Freeport falls to Laurel Hill 64-59


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
put up a heavyweight fight
with the Laurel Hill Hoboes
last week, but could not pull
out the close game in the fi-
nal three minutes. The Ho-
boes escaped with a 64-59
road victory.

Jeffrey Reese scored 31
points on the night, includ-
ing 23 in the second half, as
Laurel Hill improved to 2-1
with a non-district victory.


Jamey Goddin scored 20
points for the Bulldogs while
Aaron Knight had 15 points
and Johnny McCormick 14
as Freeport fell to 2-1 with
the loss.
Freeport was hurt by
poor free-throw shooting
as the Bulldogs managed
only 9-of-17 shooting from
the line, including a paltry
1-of-8 showing in the final
quarter.

Laurel Hill struggled


with ball-handling against
Freeport's pressure defense.
The Bulldogs forced 26 turn-
overs, but when the Hoboes
were able to get the ball to
Reese, he delivered. The
6-foot, 4-inch guard buried
jumpers and blocked just
enough shots to keep Free-
port trailing for most of the
contest. The Hoboes led
32-27 at the half and 50-47
after three quarters of play.
Game Notes: The meeting
between Freeport and Lau-


rel Hill was the first since
the mid-1990s. David Burke
holds a record of 180-104 as
he coaches his 11th season
at Freeport. The Bulldogs
will travel to Laurel Hill for
a rematch on Monday, De-
cember 17.

Freeport defeated Blount-
stown on Friday 78-74 with
a come-from-behind win to
improve to 3-1 on the year.
Blountstown and Laurel
Hill will be two of the partic-


ipants in Freeport's 16-team
boys basketball tournament

Coaches get contracts, gold watches and pink slips


By CHUCK HINSON
Just like the flip-flops,
upsets and changing weekly
of the NCAA football top 10,
the NCAA coaching staff
has done just the same, but
with more implications and
rearrangements.
Michigan head coach
Lloyd Carr got the ball roll-
ing for retirement this year,
then several others fol-
lowed suit. Houston Nutt,
head coach of Arkansas
and Washington State's Bil
Doba both stepped down af-
ter very emotional wins and
long coaching careers.
Nutt, who went 8-4 for
the season and a 111-70 re-
cord for the past 15 years at
Arkansas, Boise State and
Murray State and 75-48 at
Arkansas alone, resigned
when many said he was at


the top of his game. The Ra-
zorbacks finished their sea-
son with an explosive 50-48
triple overtime win against
the No. 1-ranked LSU Ti-
gers.
But it didn't take long to
reassign Nutt as he moved
over a state to become the
head coach of the Ole Miss
Rebels, who fired Ed Org-
eron on Nov. 24. The Reb-
els finished their season 3-7
and said that Nutt was the
ideal replacement for the
position, due to his proven
track record at Arkansas.
Those fans who wanted
to oust him from the state
of Arkansas must still deal
with him at Ole Miss, which
is in the SEC.
.Doba had a disappoint-
ing 5-7 season and was left
out of the bowl invites for


the fourth-straight season.
It was called a mutual deci-
sion by Doba and Washing-
ton State University and it
came just after their fourth
consecutive win over intra-
state rival Washington.
He leaves with a 30-29,
five-season record.
But it was heads rolling
all over the nation as many
schools waited until the fi-
nal game of the season to
cut the ties with their lead-
ers.

Georgia Tech fired Chan
Gailey, who had a winning
season of 7-5 and a career
record of 44-32 in six years
with the Yellow Jackets.
Georgia Tech won the ACC
conference last year and
never lost more than five
games in any season while


under Gailey.
Duke fired Ted Roof who
went 2-3 as interim coach
in 2003 to earn the full
-time job then won just
four more games total the
next four season. The Blue
Devils' only win this year
came with their victory over
Northwestern which broke
a 22-game losing streak.
They have lost 25 consec-
utive Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence games.
Two long-time coaches
called it quits including
University of Southern Mis-
sissippi head football coach
Jeff Bower who had led the
Golden Eagles to 14-straight
winning seasons. and 10
bowl invitations in 11 years.
Many say that this was not
an exclusive voluntary de-
cision. Bower said that he


still had a lot of fight left in
him as a coach.
Colorado State Sonny Lu-
bick stepped down as head
football coach and was of-
fered the position of athletic
director, but no word yet on
whether or not he is being
reassigned or fired. He com-
pleted his season with Colo-
rado with a 3-9 record, but
boasts 108-74 in 15 seasons.
He led the Rams to nine
bowl games during his stay
at Colorado.
At Texas A & M, short-
lived career coach Dennis
Franchione, who retired on
Nov. 21, was replaced by
Mike Sherman as the Long-
horns' head coach.
The latest firing .came
from UCLA on Monday as
they let head football coach
Karl Dorrell go just a day


after he accepted a bowl bid,
and just two days after their
loss to cross-town rival,
USC. He was let go despite
Dorrell leading the Bruins
to five post-season games of
his five seasons at UCLA.
He boasted a record of
35-27, with a 6-6 record for
this season. Dorrell and the
Bruins will play as a team
one last time in the Las Ve-
gas Bowl on Dec. 22.
Indiana seemed to have
the only good news coming
from the football field for
their coach, as the Hoosier
State gave interim football
coach Bill Lynch a four-year
contract after he led the
Hossiers to their most suc-
cessful season in 14 years
with a 7-5 season record. He
is the fourth coach at Indi-
ana since 2001.


Tigers/Buckeyes going to the big game


By CHUCK HINSON
Once again fate had an-
other twist for NCAA foot-
ball as the No. 1 and No.
2 teams hit the skids this
past Saturday night. Wait-
ing patiently and ready to
pounce, the LSU Tigers and
the Ohio State Buckeyes
were ready to take their
place once again in the top
two spots and make plans to
head to New Orleans.

Missouri enjoyed a week-
end at the No. 1 spot until
the spoiler, Oklahoma, dis-
rupted their day and ended
their hopes at the national
championship. For West
Virginia, the unranked, pes-
ty boys from Pitt brought
their national championship
hopes to an end as well.
Once both the spots were
made vacant after Satur-
day's game, LSU, who had
already seen the No. 1 spot
twice this season, and Ohio
State, who also saw the
perks of being the top spot
holder, accepted their bids


to make it to the Louisiana
Superdome on Jan. 7 for the
BCS Championship Bowl. A
backyard skip for the Tigers,
but a great road trip for the
Buckeyes.
In a season that has seen
nearly a dozen different No.
1 and No. 2 teams come and
go from the top spot rank-
ings, the BCS made their fi-
nal decision on Sunday and
announced it to the world,
with very little rebuttal, but
some fans disgruntled.

The announcement about
the two teams came early
Sunday afternoon, but many
blogs, websites, message
boards and other means of
communication, were al-
ready buzzing about who
and where their favorite
team was heading. It was
no surprise that Ohio State
moved back up into the
rankings after sealing the
spot when they beat Michi-
gan, but things were more
complicated, due to the fact
that there were no more


teams with just one loss or
less.
Hawaii finished their
season with a perfect record,
and it won them a BC.S bid.
to play against No. 4 Geor-
gia in the Sugar Bowl in
New Orleans. It is also the
first time in the school's his-
tory they will be making a
top four bowl appearance.
But back to the "big
dance." With this year's
constant flipping of the top
10 positions in all the poll
rankings, coaches, fans
and the press have made it
clear that Ohio State and
LSU were the best possi-
ble match-ups for the BCS
Championship game. They
have stated several times
that they are not the best
teams to have in the bowl.
Many felt that USC,


Virginia Tech and Georgia
would have been a better
match. But with USC's two
conference losses, Virginia
Tech losing by more than
40 points earlier in the sea-
son to LSU and Georgia
"not even qualifying to play
in the SEC play-off (which
LSU won over Tennessee,
who beat Georgia) the chips
seemed to fallen in the right
spots for the Buckeyes and
the Tigers.

LSU comes to the game
with two losses in SEC play.
one to Kentucky and the
other to Arkansas, late in
the season. Ohio State's one
loss came from unranked Il-
linois and Ron Zook's team
who will be making an ap-
pearance in the Rose Bowl
against USC.


With this past week's ex-
citement and win in Atlanta,
emotions were also stirred
when it was reported on
ESPN that head coach Les
Miles would be heading to
Michigan to fill the coaching
position left open by retir-
ing Lloyd Carr. Miles all but
squashed those rumors by
saying he was staying put
at LSU, despite rumors and
sources saying that LSU and
Michigan spoke prior to the
SEC game kick-off and LSU
threw more money Miles
way and made him stay.

With Ohio State, it will be
their second trip in -a-row
to the "big dance" and even
more at stake for the Buck-
eyes and head coach Jim
Tressel. They lost miserably
to Florida last year and now


they must face once again,
another strong, determined
and "must prove" attitude
of the LSU Tigers and the
Southeast Conference.
The SEC has not been
good to Ohio State who not
only lost to Florida in the
BCS Championship bowl in
January, they also fell to
Florida in the NCAA basket-
ball championship in April.

The game will be played
in LSU's backyard on Jan
7, beginning at 8 p.m. in
the New Orleans Super-
dome. Many Ohio State
fans say this is unfair since
it is in their state, but oth-
ers comment, "if you are
good enough to be in the 'big
game,' you should be able to
play anywhere and under
any condition.

SWMCD Commissioner


Burke arrested


By JEFFREYPOWELL
"Mr. Burke's arrest to-
night came as a surprise
to me," said South Walton
County Mosquito Control
District (SWMCD) Chair-
man John Magee.
SWMCD Commissioner
Charlie Burke was appar-
ently arrested at approxi-
mately 6:45 p.m. just before
the board was to have a
regular meeting. Burke has
been suspected of not living
within the district,that he
serves since he was elected.
Allegations have been made
s*Ca-a-S


against Burke stating that
he resides in Bay County.
Burke has steadfastly de-
nied these charges.
At approximately 7:15
on December 4,Chairman
Magee announced that the
meeting would not be held
for two reasons. The first
of which was Burkes arrest
and the second of which was
the lack of a quorum. Com-
missioner Jim Crawford did
not show up for the meet-
ing.
"To my knowledge Mr.
Burke was arrested by In-
,_O-.-,
#.:',. .


vestigator Brad Trusty of
the office of State Attorney
First Judicial Circuit," said
Magee. "I am glad to see
that justice is beginning
to be served. The state has
been very diligent and thor-
ough in its investigation.
. The charges brought
against Burke are a class
three Felony.
According to Walton
County jail personal Burke
was release at approximate-
ly 8 p.m. on his own recogni-
zance.

Area boat ramps to


see much needed


improvements


By JEFFREYPOWELL
Several area boat ramps
are soon to receive needed
improvements, according to
District 1 Walton County
Commissioner Scott Bran-
non. The boat ramps to be
worked on are Black Creek
Landing, which is located
adjacent to the CR-3280
bridge at Black Creek, River
Road Landing on Choctaw-
hatchee River at the end of
River Road, Portland Park,
located at the end of Port-
land Road, and the Point
Washington boat ramp lo-
cated at the north end of
CR-395.


"Commissioner Brannon
has been on the forefront
of protecting and improv-
ing public access to our ar-
eas waterways," said Com-
missioner Brannon's aide,
Susan Burgess. "These im-
provements will allow resi-
dents and visitors alike the
ease of accessing our water-
ways."
Preble-Rish Inc. Consult-
ing Engineers & Surveyors
has presented a proposal to
the county to enhance the
boatramp facilities. Each
landing will receive particu-
lar improvements specific
to the area and all improve-
ments are subject to De-


apartment of Environmental
Protection and Army Corps
of Engineers final approval.
Surveying for the projects
will include a one-foot topo-
graphic survey with bench-
marks set on each side of the
individual boatramps sites
with a maximum 500-foot
interval for use during con-
struction. Barring any un-
forseen problems the work
could be done by summer
2008.
"We are hoping to com-
plete these projects in time
for the upcoming summer
season or earlier," Burgess
said.

planning comeback-


By DOTTY NIST
Bayou Bill's Crab House
in Santa Rosa Beach was
lost to fire on Nov. 28 after
serving customers for over
20 years.
Sean Hughes, deputy
chief for the South Walton
Fire District, said firefight-
ers responded to the restau-
rant fire in slightly under
four minutes after being
alerted by a phone call in
the early morning hours of
Nov. 28.
Hughes said a motor-
ist spotted the fire, drove
to a nearby sports bar, and
asked someone there to call
firefighters. Hughes said he
was the second person to ar-
rive on' scene and saw flames
reaching from one side of the
building to the other side.
Six South Walton Fire
District trucks were called
in to fight the fire, along
with one from the Destin
Fire Department, he ex-
plained, adding. that the
"blaze was for the most part
extinguished within an
hour. No dollar amount of
damage has been revealed,


but everyone agrees that de-
struction was total.
Primary owner William P.
Wyllie III was not available
for comment, but the "Beach
Breeze" was contacted by.
Robert Martin, who idefiti-:
fled himself as one of several
co-owners of the restaurant:
and made himself available
to answer questions.
Martin commented that
the incident was a big shock
to owners. He said the State
Fire Marshal's office is in-,
vestigating the exact cause;
of the fire, which started in
the back dining room near;
the furnace. He explained,
that the heat had been left
on at a setting of 63 degrees.
Martin said it had been de-;
termined that the air intake:
of the heating system drew"
in the fire once it had start-:
ed, resulting in it spreadingi
throughout the structure.
No one was in the restau-,
rant when the fire started,;
but Martin said workers had
been present at about 5 p.m.:
the previous evening. The;

New Bay County airport




construction halted


(Courtesy WMBB-TV 13)

Construction on the new
Bay County Airport is on
hold, at least temporarily.
Friends of PFN President
Fred Werner said an appeals
judge granted the temporary
injunction for construction
on the new airport. Werner
said the injunction stops the
first phase of construction
on the new airport in an ef-
fort to save the wetlands in
the West Bay site until the
lawsuit is ruled on.
News.13 also spoke with


Airport Executive Director
Randy Curtis, who says he
received confirmation of the
injunction, but says the de-
sign and permitting process
should be allowed to move
forward even if initial con-
struction is halted by the
courts. A hearing is sched-
uled for December 18 in New
York. The Airport Author-
ity broke ground November
1 with hopes of having the
new $331 million airport up,
and running by 2010.
Four-hundred acres of
land in West Bay are set to


be turned over to the Air-
port Board, but after a stay
on the construction of the
new terminal was issued
last week, plans have come
to a screeching halt; Con-
tract Manager Jeff Dealy of
Kellog Brown and Root says
the best possible. scenario
will be for dirt to move after
the first of the year.

-If the hearing on De-
cember 18 does not go the
airport's way; contracts for
$250 million worth of con-
struction a re likely to i6 e e-


played for months. For now,
Dealy and his company are
still looking to have the new
airport open by early 2010.
Phoenix Construction, the
company named to complete
the preliminary site work,
says it is waiting to rear-
range staff. Phoenix spokes-
man James Finch says
subcontractors will have to
divert their workers to other
jobs and that-his company
will not be going through
their stack of applications
until its given the okay to
proceed. ,


IRoll Call

'Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC)
Nov. 27 regular meeting

A yes vote was to approve the motion.

Following presentations by firms responding to a RFP
;for state lobbying services and ranking of the firms by the
'commissioners, motion by Jones to direct staff to negotiate
'with the top-ranking firm, Heffely & Associates.
The motion was approved unanimously: Brannon-yes;
iComander-yes; Jones-yes; Meadows-yes; Pridgen-yes.

Final required public hearing on ordinance setting im-
:pact fees to fund Walton County Fire Rescue. Due to con-
cerns raised about levels of fees for commercial and institu-'
tional properties, motion by Jones to postpone a decision on
:the ordinance until Jan. 8.
The motion was approved unanimously.

SPresentation by Ken Little, county citizen services direc-
tor, of list of volunteers for appointment and reappointment
:to county committees. Included were Robert Linn to replace
Don Crim (deceased) on the ADA Committee, Sandy Smith
to replace Blaine Ashworth on the Affordable Housing Com-
mittee, and Dale Foster to replace ex officio member Claire
Bannerman on the Design Review Board. In addition, three
members of the Code Enforcement Board, Alan Newsome,
'Charlotte Flynt, and Thomas Stein, had indicated their de-
sire to continue with new terms on that board.
A motion by Jones for approval of the appointments and
reappointments carried unanimously.

Request by Kris Titus, South Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC) executive director, for appointment of
Tim Norris to the TDC board to replace Van Ness Butler,
who, Titus explained, will be retiring after 21 years of ser-
vice.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried unanimous-
ly.

Request by Jean Harvey and Rettha French for BCC as-
sistance in having Council on Aging (COA) Director Kay
Brady suspended pending an investigation of her perfor-
mance in view of citizen complaints.
Due to the BCC not having supervisory authority over
the COA, an independent nonprofit, although providing
funding for senior meals, Comander motioned to write to
COA to ask for an accounting of how the county funding is
being used and an explanation why 200 seniors have alleg-
edly been cut from the COA meal program.
The motion was approved unanimously.
Additional proposal and motion by Meadows to direct
Little to work with county legal counsel to determine the
proper legal steps and channels for citizens complaints
with regard to the matter.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Public hearing to consider exempting Walton County
from 2006 state legislation allowing the riding of ATVs
on unpaved roads with posted speed limits of less than 35


mph.
Motion by Jones to adopt an ordinance exempting the
county from the legislation, resulting in the riding of ATVs
being prohibited from all public roads and streets, paved
and unpaved, in Walton County.
The motion was approved unanimously.

ty, for transfer of the DEP operation permit on the Green
Acres (Lucky 13 Truck Stop) wastewater treatment plant

"hit" with fines from DEP earlier this year in connection
with the operation of the plant.

Additional recommendation by Henry on option to ad-
dress litigation issue. He explained that Americans Unit-
ed for Separation of Church and State had threatened a
lawsuit if the Christmas nativity scene were placed on the
courthouse lawn for the holiday. Henry proposed avoiding
the lawsuit by putting additional decorations in place such
as snowmen along with the nativity, with the result that
the decorations could be viewed legally as a winter holiday
display rather than an endorsement of a single religion.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried unanimous-
ly.

Presentation by Mike Burke, county legal counsel, of
proposed agreements in connection with three coastal ar-
moring structures that encroach county-owned property,
conditional licensing agreements allowing the structures to

plant at the Mossy Head Industrial Park.

landfill fund reserve funds to pay remaining amounts for

fice needs, including additional parking, an impound yard,

facility north of DeFuniak Springs.

tion and appraisal report (EAR).

directed-to research the number of properties that would be
affected.
Brannon moved to postpone a decision until Dec. 11 in
order to allow time for this research.

to return BCC approval in public-forum for aspects of the
development plans involving compatibility, noise, lighting,
suffering, and stormwater.

Approved unanimously was a request by JSA, Inc., for

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2007


COMMUNITY CALENDAR


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

TO VOLUNTEER, MAKE A DONATION or to become a spon-
sor, of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast, inc., call Peggy
Mahone at ( 850) 862-1616 or e-mail at www.bgcec.com.

THE DECEMBER BOOK SELECTION is Joan Anderson's mem-
oir, "A Walk on the Beach." The book is an insightful account of
her journey in self discovery and growth enhanced by a chance en-
counter with free spirited author, Joan Erikson. This develops into
an extraordinary friendship which supports and changes both of their
lives. Come join Booklovers Group on Dec. 11 for a discussion


about friendship, wisdom, adventure and mentors in our lives.
The booklovers meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 10
a.m. at South Walton's Coastal Library located at 427 Greenway
trail off of Hwy. 331S. All are welcomed. The schedule for the
next 2007-2008 meetings are as follows: Dec. 11, "Walk on the
Beach" by Joan Anderson; Jan. 8, "Tortilla Curtain" by T.C. Boyle;
Feb.12, "Rules for Old Men Waiting" by Peter Pouncy-Katchen;
"Ringelstetter" March 11.

THE FREEPORT LIBRARY will be accepting donations of canned
goods and any non-perishable food items through December 20 for
local needy families. All collected food items will be turned over
to Sharing and Caring Hands, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in
DeFuniak Springs.
"Our team thought this was a good project to take on," says branch
library manager Nicole Shinskie, "since the library is conveniently
located for most people in the southern part of the county." She
says the Freeport Library 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 from Nov.11 through Dec. 20. The donation
box will be clearly labeled and placed in .the entrance foyer of the
library. Library hours are Monday -Wednesday, 10 a.m. 6 p.m.,
Thursday, 10 a.m. 8 p.m., and Friday Saturday, 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 a part of that bridge, and
we hope the citizens of our community will pull together and be a
part of this holiday effort."

For further information, call Nicole Shinskie at 850-835-2040.


MOVIE REVIEW


"Awake" is a


By BRUCE COLLIER
Joby Harold's "Awake"
clocks in at about 90 min-
utes, a bit on the short side
for movies these days. Still,
it wastes no time in getting
across the story. The film
is tightly shot, with a terse
screenplay and a cast that
sells the product without
unnecessary fuss. I picked
this one to review almost
at random, ruling out "Au-
gust Rush" because I wasn't
prepared for full-strength
Robin Williams that day. Or
most days.
"Awake" is set in modern
New York. The hero is' Clay
Beresford Jr., played by
Hayden Christensen. Clay
is a billionaire businessman,
who specializes in buying up
companies while guarantee-
ing continued jobs for their
employees. In short, he's
that movie rarity, a nice rich
guy. Clay lives in the shad-
ow of his deceased father,
and walks warily around
his loving but somewhat
domineering mother, Lilith
(Lena Olin).
As the film opens, Clay is
trying to solve three prob-
lems. The first is a compli-
cated deal with a Japanese
company. The second is
finding a heart for trans-
planting Clay's defective
ticker pumps a rare blood
type. The third is how to
break the news to his moth-
er that he intends to marry
his beautiful but socially
unsuitable girlfriend, Sam
(Jessica Alba). Sam works'
for Clay, and their affair has
'been going on for a year. She
demands a commitment,
and Clay is loathe to upset
the status quo.
Following a heart-to-
heart (pun probably not in-
tended) with his physician
and buddy Dr. Jack Harper
(Terrence Howard), Clay de-
cides to take the plunge and
come clean with mom. He
and Sam wed secretly, and
Clay receives news that an
appropriate heart has been
located. Lilith gets hit with
the news all at once, and
urges Clay to let another
doctor, world-class heart
surgeon Dr. Jonathan Neyer
(Arliss Howard) perform the
transplant. Clay insists that
his friend Jack do the job.
He goes under anesthesia,
and the ugly stuff begins.
According to the film,
a statistically significant
number of surgical patients
remain conscious under an-
esthesia. They are mentally
lucid, capable of feeling
pain, and completely para-
lyzed. Unable to communi-
cate their plight to the doc-
tors, they must endure the
full agony of surgery. Clay
is among this unlucky few.
At this point, Clay be-


short, sharp thriller


comes a voiceover character,
narrating his feelings as the
surgeons blithely slice him
open, spread his ribcage,
and snip out his heart. The
new organ is icing down in
what looks like a beer cooler
at the side of the operating
table. Clay manages to bring
his pain under control, only
to overhear the really bad
news not everyone wants
him to pull through.
To reveal more would be
to initiate movie-spoilage.
All, is not as Clay thought,
and everyone is not who they
pretend to be. Mentally, he
"wills" himself off the table
and makes an imaginary re-
tracing of the last few days,
recalling conversations and
meetings. With mounting
horror, Clay sees that the
facts have been before him
all along and the clues are
gallingly obvious. Unfortu-
nately, he can't even sum-
mon up an eyelash flutter in
protest.
The surgery is pretty


hard to watch. "Awake" is
no slasher film, and there
is no sadistic intent in the
cutting, but yes, there is
blood. And there's a ribcage
spreading device that looks
like something out of the
last scene of "Braveheart."
Once past that, the best
stuff is found in the human
element betrayal, decep-
tion, greed, fortitude, sacri-
fice, and some random flies
in the ointment that suggest
the hand of providence..
As Clay, Christensen
does a good job with a tricky
acting challenge. He has to
convey a great deal with his
voice, and play more than a
few scenes as an "unseen"
character reviewing his own
past sort of like Scrooge in
"A Christmas Carol." Jes-
sica Alba is pretty and good
at looking put-upon, Lena
Olin is still hot at 52, and
Terrence Howard gives the
film a touch of weight and
class it might not otherwise
have.

I'm told that the premise
of "Awake" is suspect, and
that not as many people
have Clay's problem as one
is led to believe. Still, if he
were only one in 100 million,
we'd have a movie worth
watching. In a Hollywood
world of teenaged wizards,
tree-walking Chinese war-
riors, and Sly Stallone kick-
ing butt in the jungle at 62,
a little medical "what-if' can
be a simple pleasure. How
many murder mysteries let
the victim play the detec-
tive, too?

Thanksgiving for cleaning

open again after Christmas.
"We'd definitely like to
reopen it;" Martin said,
"it's been an icon in Walton
County."
Martin said plans are to
rebuild the structure to the
same footprint as before if
insurance funds are avail-
able on a timely basis and


if county approval to do so
is forthcoming. He said the
owners would also like the
restaurant to have the same
"family casual" appearance
as before. Martin said that
Bayou Bill's has 25 em-
ployees and that most have
worked for the restaurant
for many years.

"We've had very little
turnover," he said.

Tigers/
Buckeyes
going to
the big
game


By CHUCK ,:
HINSON
Once again
fate had an-
other twist for
NCAA football
as the No. 1 -
and No. 2 teams hit the skids
this past Saturday night.
Waiting patiently and ready
to pounce, the LSU Tigers
and the Ohio State Buckeyes
were ready to take their
place once again in the top
two spots and make plans to
head to New Orleans.
Missouri enjoyed a week-
end at the No. 1 spot until the
spoiler, Oklahoma, disrupted
their day and ended their
hopes at the national cham-
pionship. For West Virginia,
the unranked, pesty boys
from Pitt brought their na-
tional championship hopes to
an end as well.


Once both the spots were
made vacant after Saturday's
game, LSU, who had already
seen the No. 1 spot twice this
season, and Ohio State, who
also saw the perks of being
the top spot holder, accepted
their bids to make it to the
Louisiana Superdome on
Jan. 7 for the BCS Champi-
onship Bowl. A backyad-skip
for the Tigers, but a great
road trip for the Buckeyes."
In a season that has seen-
nearly a dozen different No.
1 and No. 2 teams come and
go from the top,.ispot
rankings, the BCS made
their final decision on Sun-
day and announced it to the
world, with very little rebut-
tal, but some fans dis-
gruntled.
The announcement about
the two teams came early
Sunday afternoon, but many
blogs, websites, message
boards and other means of
communication, were al-
ready buzzing about who and
where their favorite team


was heading. It was no sur-
prise that Ohio State moved
back up into the rankings
after sealing the spot when
they beat Michigan, but
things were more compli-
cated, due to the fact that
there were no more teams
with just one loss or less.
Hawaii finished their sea-
son with a perfect record, and
it won them a BCS bid to play
against No. 4 Georgia in the
Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.
It is also the first time in the
school's history they will be
making a top four bowl ap-
pearance.
But back to the "big dance."
With this year's constant flip-
ping of the top 10 positions
in all the poll rankings,
coaches, fans and the press
have made it clear that Ohio
State and LSU were the best
possible match-ups for the
BCS Championship game.
They have stated several
times that they are not the
best teams to' have in the
bowl. ". (
Many felt that USC, Vir-
ginia Tech and Georgia
would have been a better
match. But with USC's two
conference losses, Virginia
Tech losing by more than 40
points earlier in the season
to LSU and Georgia not even
qualifying to play in the SEC
play-off (which LSU won
over Tennessee, who beat
Georgia) the chips seemed to
fallen in the right spots for
the Buckeyes and the Tigers.
LSU comes to the game
with two losses in SEC play.
one to Kentucky and the


other to Ar-
kansas, late
in the sea-
son. Ohio
State's one


loss came
f r o m
SL' i C j. t unranked Il-
linois and
Ron Zook's
team who
will be mak-
ing an ap-
pearance in the Rose Bowl
against USC.
With this past week's ex-
citement and win in Atlanta,
emotions were also stirred
when it was reported on
ESPN that head coach Les
Miles would be heading to
Michigan to fill the coaching
position left open by retiring
Lloyd Carr. Miles all but
squashed those rumors by
saying he was staying put at
LSU, despite rumors and
sources saying that LSU and
Michigan spoke prior to the
SEC game kick-off and LSU
threw more money Miles way
and made him stay.
With Ohio State, it will be
their secondtrip in -a-row to
the "big dance" and even
more at stake for the Buck-
eyes and head coach Jim
Tressel. They lost miserably
to Florida last year and now
they must face once again,
another strong, determined
and "must prove" attitude of
the LSU Tigers and the
Southeast Conference.
The SEC has not beri good
to-Ohio .State whonot-.only
lost to Florida in the BCS
Championship bowl in Janu-
ary, they also fell to Florida
in the NCAA basketball
championship in April.
The game will be played in
LSU's backyard on Jan 7,
beginning at 8 p.m. in the
New Orleans Superdome.
Many Ohio State fans say
this is unfair since it is in
their state, but others com-
ment, "ifyou are good enough
to be in the 'big game,' you
should be able to play any-
where and under any condi-
tion.

A person whose substantial
interests are affected by the
Department's action may petition for
an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must
be filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to
redetermine final agency action on
the application, the filing of a petition
for an administrative hearing may
result in a modification of the permit
and lease, or even a denial of the
application. Accordingly, the
applicant is advised not to
commence construction or other
activities under this permit/lease
until the deadlines below for filing a
petition for an administrative
hearing, or request for an extension
of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a
person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's
action may also request an
extension of time to file a petition for
an administrative hearing. The
Department may, for good cause
shown, grant the request for an
extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
before the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of time
shall toll the running time period for
filing a petition until the request is
acted upon. If a request is filed late,
the Department may still grant it
upon a motion by the requesting
party showing that the failure to file
a request for an extension of time
before the deadline was the result of
excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and
sufficient petition for an
administrative hearing is filed, other
persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by the outcome of
the administrative process have the
right to petition to intervene in the
proceeding. Intervention will be only
at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida Administrative Code.

In accordance with rules 28-
106.111 (2) and 62-110.106 (3) (a)
(4), petitions for an administrative
hearing by the applicant must be
filed within 21 days of receipt of this
written notice. Petitions filed by any
persons other than the applicant,
and other than those entitled to
written notice under section 120.60
(3) of the Florida Statutes, must be
filed within 21 days of publication of
the notice or within 21 days of such
notice, regardless of the date of
publication.

Under section 120.60 (3) of the
Florida Statutes, however, any
person who has asked the
Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 21
days of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of
the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person to
file a petition for an administrative
hearing or pursue mediation as
provided below within the


appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of those rights.

A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based must
contain the following information:

(a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each
agency's file or identification
number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner;
the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's
representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes
during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of
how the petitioner's substantial
interests are or will be affected by
the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how
the petitioner received notice of the
agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the
ultimate facts alleged, including the
specific facts that the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or
modification of the agency's
proposed action; and
(f) A statement of the specific rules
or statutes that the petitioner
contends requires reversal or
modification of the agency's
proposed action;
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by the petitioner, stating precisely
the action that the petitioner wishes
the agency to take with respect to
the agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute
the material facts on which the
Department's action is based shall
state that no such facts are in
dispute and otherwise shall contain
the same information as set forth
above, as required by rule 28-
106.301. Under sections 120.569
(2) (c) and (d) of the Florida
Statutes, a petition for
administrative hearing must be
dismissed by the agency if the
petition does not substantially
comply with the above
requirements or is untimely filed.

This action is final and effective
on the date filed with the Clerk of
the Department unless a petition is
filed in accordance with the above.
Upon the timely filing of petition this
order will not be effective until
further order of the Department.

This permit constitutes an order
of the Department. The applicant
has the right to seek judicial review
of the order under section 120.68 of
the Florida Statutes, by the filing of
a notice of appeal under rule 9.110
of the Florida Rules of Appellate

FPSCencourages an

energy efficient holiday


The Florida Public Ser-
vice Commission (PSC) en-
courages residents to make
energy efficient choices this
holiday season. According
to the Energy Information
Administration, the key to
holding holiday electric-
ity costs down is making
energy efficient lighting
choices. Depending on the
type, number, and length of
time used, powering holiday
lights can cost from a few
cents to more than $50.
"Conserving energy at
home is an important tool
for consumers to save money
and energy resources," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "As Florida's popu-
lation continues to grow, the
benefits of consumer-prac-
ticed energy conservation
will become even more sig-
nificant in supplying afford-
able energy."
As part of its ongoing
commitment to encourage
energy efficiency, the PSC
offers a few energy-saving
tips for the holiday season
that will curb energy costs
and even provide some gift
ideas.
Use LED (light-emitting
diode) holiday lights. These
newer energy-efficient bulbs
can last more than 50,000
hours, or 20 years. Each
LED bulb uses only 0.04
watts and is up to 90 per-
cent more efficient than its
traditional counterpart.
The Alliance to Save Ener-
gy estimates that a house-
hold burning ten 100-light'
strands eight hours a day
for a month would spend
almost $175 for large bulbs,
about $11 for traditional
mini lights, and just over $1
for LEDs.
When cooking your
holiday meal, the time of


day can make a big differ-
ence. During peak periods
utilities must produce ad-
ditional electricity to meet
customer demand. To help
lower overall energy con-
sumption, the best time to
use electric appliances is 10
a.m. 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. 6
a:m. For more information
see the PSC's brochure on
Reducing Electric Costs at
www.floridapsc.cpm.
Set your thermostat
to 68 degrees in the win-
ter. Wearing a heavy long-
sleeved sweater adds about
3.7 degrees.
Use timers to limit light
displays to no more than
six evening hours. Leaving
lights on 24 hours a day will
quadruple energy costs.
Unplug phone chargers,
electronic devices, or new
electric holiday gifts when
not in use. When plugged
in, they continue to use en-
ergy.
Upgrading to energy-ef-
ficient appliances is a great
holiday gift idea. Appli-
ances that meet federal effi-
ciency guidelines display an
Energy Star label. For more
information on the Energy
Star program, visit www.
energystar.gov.
The PSC is committed to
making sure that Florida's
consumers receive their
electric, natural gas, tele-
phone, water,' and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, afford-
able, and reliable manner.
The -PSC exercises regula-
tory authority over utilities
in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competi-
tive market oversight; and
monitors safety, reliability,
and service.

Privacy issues, ID theft top



concerns for online sho p pers


A new Better Business
Bureau (BBB) survey con-
ducted by Kelton Research
finds that six in 10 (60 per-
cent) American adult online
shoppers are worried about
their personal information
being sold or reused when
asked what has ever made
them hesitant about com-
pleting a transaction online.
Nearly the same amount (59
percent), admit they've had
anxiety about their credit
card information being sto-
len.
Despiteconcerns, consum-
ers are increasingly turning
to the convenience of online
shopping during the holi-
day season. In a recent 2007
holiday spending forecast,
Forrester Research, Inc.
estimated online shoppers
would increase seasonal
spending nearly 20 percent,
to $33 billion, this year.
"Even though increas-
ingly more holiday shoppers
have confidence in mak-
ing online purchases, ba-
sic trust in business issues
such as privacy and ID theft
are clearly still top concerns
for many consumers," said
Norman Wright, President/
CEO of the BBB serving
Northwest Florida. "tSurvey
results show that fears over
the use and safety of per-
sonal information including
credit card numbers, tele-
phone numbers, and home
and e-mail addresses are
the main reasons online
shoppers second-guess their
decisions when making on-
line purchases."
In addition to privacy


TUNA

izens. Actors Craige Hoover
and Sammy Wegent play
a stageful of characters,
switching costumes (and
sometimes genders) in the
blink of an eye.
"A Tuna Christmas"
takes place on Christmas
Eve, when families are


and identity theft concerns,
many online shoppers also
indicated that they have
hesitated shopping online
over the concern of receiving
spam and/or junk e-mails
(45 percent). Less online
shoppers were concerned
about the difficulty of navi-
gating the site (26 percent)
and the amount of time it
takes to ship the item (25
percent).
"Although online shop-
ping is fast and convenient,
unfortunately, you can't tell
just by looking at a Web site
whether a company is trust-
worthy and dependable,
much less even legitimate.
Consumers want a safe on-
line environment, and they
can help themselves by be-
ing a savvy online shopper
this holiday season with a
little research and by taking
a few safety precautions,"
added Wright.
BBB offers the following
advice to help make your
online shopping a safe and
easy experience this holiday
season:
Protect your comput-
er Update your computer
system with the latest spam
filters, anti-virus and anti-
spyware software, and a se-
cure firewall.
Use trustworthy Web
sites Always start with
BBB to check on the sell-
er's reputation and record
for customer satisfaction.
Look for a "trustmark" from
BBBOnLine and click on
that seal to confirm that it's
valid.
Protect your personal


information Read the
site's privacy policy to un-
derstand what personal in-
formation is being requested
and how it will be used. If
there isn't one posted, con-
sider that a warning that
your personal information
may be sold to others with-
out your permission.
Trust your gut Offers
on Web sites and in unsolic-
ited e-mails can often sound
too good to be true. Always
go with your instincts and
don't be afraid to pass up a
"deal" because it might cost
you in the end.
Beware of phishing -
Legitimate businesses do
not send e-mails claiming
problems with an order or
an account to lure the "buy-
er" into revealing financial
information. Pick up the
phone and call the contact
number on the Web site
where you made the pur-
chase to. ask if there was a
problem with your transac-
tion.
Confirm your online
purchase is secure Look
in the address box for the "s"
in https:// and in the lower-
right corner for the "lock"
symbol before paying. If you
have doubts about a site,
right-click anywhere on the
page and select "Properties."
This will let you see the real
URL (Web site address) and
the dialog box will reveal if
the site is not encrypted.
Pay with a credit card
- It's best to use a credit
card because under fed-
eral law you can dispute
the charges if you don't get


what you were promised.
You alsqhave dispute rights
if there.' are unauthorized
charges on your credit card,
and many card issuers have
"zero liability" policies un-
der which you pay nothing
if someone steals your credit
card number and uses it.
Keep documenta-
tion of your order. When
you've completed the online
order process, there may be
a final confirmation page or
you might receive confirma-
tion by email don't delete
these, save them!
Check your credit card
statement often Don't
wait for a paper statement;
check your credit card state-
ments for suspicious activity
by either calling the credit
card company or by check-
ing your statement online.
Know your rights-
Federal law requires that
orders made by mail, phone
or online be shipped by
the date promised or, if no
delivery time was stated,
within 30 days. If the goods
aren't shipped on time, you
can cancel and demand a
refund. There is no gen-
eral three-day cancellation
right, but you do have the
right to reject merchandise
if it's defective or was mis-
represented. Otherwise, it's
the company's policies that
determine if you cancancel
the purchase and whether
you can get a refund or cred-
it.,

THIS LARGER-THAN-LIFE Indian sculpture created
by Joe Elmore from cypress in the early 90s sits in front of
Elmore's Landing Gallery, located south of the Clyde Wells
(U.S. 331) Bridge, just prior to being moved to make way for
the widening of the highway.

ONCE ON the forklift, the two-ton redwood buffalo is slowly moved to its location at the
entrance gate. Elmore salvaged the redwood in the late 80s after it washed out of a state
park in California during a flood.


JOE ELMORE and friends breath a sigh of relief as the redwood buffalo stands firm on
its new foundation.
