School

buses

a hot

topic for

board

By ALICIA LEONARD
During a prior meeting
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson recommended
the Walton County School
Board approve the purchase
of nine new school buses
for transportation. Accord-
ing to the board minutes all
members voted to approve
the recommendation, with a
highlight note that the board
ask the superintendent to
check with other counties
to see if their main fleet
buses had air-conditioning.
Anderson was absent due
to illness during the Feb. 5
meeting but had the infor-
mation compiled for board
members. Anderson told
the Herald, "We update our
fleet every year and have
have a large amount of well-
maintained newer-model
buses compared to some of
our surrounding counties."


'"Wh Ty can
these two small
districts af-
ford it and we
can't?" Walton
School Board member
Darrell Barnhill


Mac Work, director of
transportation, approached
the board with his findings
over the cost of equipping
or purchasing buses with
air-conditioning. Work told

New application puts



focus on borrow pits


By DOTTY NIST
The challenge of harmo-
nizing industrial-type land
uses with residential neigh-
bors has been underscored
in Walton County, with a
borrow pit being proposed
for an unincorporated area
north of Freeport.
, Lee Perry has applied to
operate the pit on a 207-acre
site on Ed Brownfield Road,
less than half a mile north
of Rock Hill Road. Perry's
property is immediately ad-
jacent on the east to a bor-
row pit operated by Walton
County. The Rock Hill Road
area is known as a good
source for construction fill
material, and for that rea-
son a number of other pits
are found there as well. It
appears that no one is sure

staff must

"phone

home"
By ALICIA LEONARD
In the 2005-2006 and
2007-2008 Internal Rev-
enue Service (IRS) audit,
the Walton County School
Board was "criticized" for the
use of cell phones by school
employees. The IRS consid-
ers the phones an 'employee
perk,' and requested the
school verify that they are
being used for business and
are necessary for all those
that carry them.
Chief Financial Officer
James McCall provided the
board with an updated Wal-
ton County School District
(WCSD) cell phone proce-
dures agenda item. The
procedure dictates those al-
lowed a WCSD cell phone or
a direct link phone, which
MlcCall identified as "beep-
beep" phones.
McCall spoke with the
Herald about the audit.
"I can honestly say I have
looked through more cell

of the number of borrow
pits operating in the area,
but at this time county staff
say they are sure of at least
eight.
Borrow pits are an al-
lowable use for the land-
use classification of Perry's
property, Large-Scale Ag-
riculture, as a special ex-
ception. Currently Perry's
proposal, known as Azland
Mining, is under review by
the Walton County Techni-
calReview Committee.
The project area is va-
cant. With the exception of
the county pit, surrounding
areas are also vacant. Prop-'
erty to the north, east and
west is classified as Large-
Scale Agriculture, but prop-
erty to the south is classi-
fied as Estate Residential.


According to a county staff
report on the project, the
nearest residential property
is approximately 700 feet
from Perry's property line.


"We have a
neighborhood
there and we
want to protect
our neighbor-
hood," said Rock
Hill Road resident
Eileen West.


The proposal is definite-
ly on the radar screen for


Rock Hill Road residents
and property owners, many
of whom spoke out last Oc-
tober against a borrow pit
expansion planned for their
road by another party. The
outcome in that instance
was that the county denied
the applicant's request to
reclassify property for pur-
poses of the expansion. The
result was that expansion of
the pit could not be autho-
rized.
When Perry's Azland
Mining proposal was dis-
cussed at the Feb. 6 techni-
cal review committee meet-
ing, more than a dozen Rock
Hill Road area residents
were in attendance, a num-
ber'of them voicing com-

l City wants defeated

referendum on ballot again


LEIGH MORRISON, di-
rector of the new Senior Cen-
ter, introduced herself to the
Council.


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council discussed up-
coming city elections and
setting the dates for a runoff
if necessary. Qualifying for
Seats 1, 2 and 3 will begin
on March 11 at 8 a.m. and
stay open until March 14
at 1 p.m. The city elections
will be held on April 8. The
Council voted to extend the
run-off date for the elections
by three weeks to date April


29. The Council approved
the change 4-1, with Henry
Ennis giving the only dis-
senting vote. Don Harrison,
James Huffman and James
Coffield are all seeking re-
election.
The city plans to submit a
referendum for the position
of City Clerk to be moved
from an elected position to
an appointed position. Such
a referendum, supported by
the Council, has been sub-


mitted to the public before
and failed. City voters con-
firmed that they want the
City Clerk to be an elected
position. Despite this, the
Council is seeking to have
the question put on the bal-
lot again. Currently, no one
is holding that office. It is not
known whether the Coun-
cil's plan to put the question

Love


is


in


the air

By RON KELLEY

You may be "Addicted to Love." You may be "A Big
Hunk O' Love." Or you may be "All Out Of Love" and
singing "Another Sad Love Song." Whatever the state
of your love life, this is the day.
Valentine's Day is dreamed of by florists, celebrated
by women and dreaded by men. It's easy to see why
the florists and candy companies love the day and even
easier to understand why it is so favored the fairer
sex, but for lots of guys, it's an annual test make it or
break it, pass or fail a full day of unending anxiety.
Did I get the right thing? Did I spend enough? Did I
spend too much? Are flowers and chocolate enough or
should I climb the water tower at midnight and spray-
paint her name in day-glo letters five feet tall?
You ladies don't realize what a stressful day this
can be for guys especially those of us that may not be
known for our thoughtfulness, sensitivity and senti-
mentalism.
Guys, here are a few thoughts that may help.
Do something even if it's dumb. I once forgot on
which day of the week Valentine's Day fell and missed
it. Trust me, you do not want to go there ever. So do
something a handful of flowers from the neighbor's
yard, a $10 Whitman's Sampler whatever, just make
sure you do something.
Valentine's Day does not start and end with flow-
ers and candy. Today's woman is looking for someone
who is sharp, creative and imaginative. Whoops. Just
remember giving her only flowers and candy are just
sooooo last century. Flowers and candy are what you
start with followed by cards (the more the better),
lunch or dinner or both at either the nicest place you
can find or someplace that holds a lot of sentimental
value for her. That could be a romantic picnic or a
fancy restaurant your choice, but remember to pick
what you think she will like best. (Note: Hooters, Mc-
Donald's and anyplace that features an all-you-can-
eat buffet are NOT appropriate.)
Gifts are always appreciated. We know that dia-
monds are a girl's best friend, but if your budget can't
handle too much ice, a keepsake is just as nice. Does
she like collectibles crystal or ceramic figures, draw-
ings, paintings, books by a favorite author or music
- especially love songs? These make nice gifts that last
long after the flowers have wilted and the last truffle
is gone. (Note: new pots and pans, vacuum cleaners
and feather dusters are not gifts ever.)
Can't find the right gift? Then do something togeth-
er. Take a walk in the woods, go to a movie, take her
out to a club, take her on a day-cruise or re-visit a
place that is special to her or to both of you.
Can't get your schedules together? Do something for
her. Perform some task that she hates doing. Catch
up on some honey-do projects you've been putting off.
While not especially romantic, such effort will get you
a smile and a hug and that's always a good thing.
If you can't do any of these things if you are a dull
and unimaginative clod there is still hope for you.
Find a quiet moment, hold her close, look her in the
eye and tell her how much you love her and how ter-
rible your life would be without her and make sure
she knows you mean it. You may still be a dull and un-
imaginative clod, but you'll be her dull and unimagi-
native clod. Who knows, for a little while, you may be
a knight in shining armor. After all, "Love Is Blind,"
thankfully.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Editor:
I express shock over hearing about a last minute change
in Florida Chautauqua Assembly's keynote speaker for Sat-
urday's a.m. slot. Our local paper could not announce this
change. Why the change, and at the last minute? The previ-
ously publicized speaker, Jim Fowler, is a respected news-
man and contributor to our understanding of environment
and natural habitats. Yes, it was announced Fowler would
be "present" for the 10 a.m. session and one at 1 p.m., the
cost being $7 for the latter session. This change alienated
the real Americans who wish to preserve some of nature's
bounty. The replacement is a disgraced politician who, I am
told, has property in south Walton. If this was an effort to
place a big name into keynote slots should we anticipate
hearing future keynoters like descendents of Adolph Hitler
or Al Capone?
DeFuniak Springs can do better to promote itself. Shame
on the group which made this last minute change. It would
be great news to hear of a unified Chautauqua Assembly.
Otherwise are we, prepared for two groups with the same
name? Competition can be good for business, but is it good
in a lovely, small community which relies almost totally on
volunteers to share it's heritage with others?
It's confusing to Chautauqua participants. Who's on
first?

Editor:
My first visits to DeFuniak Springs were in the early
1980's. I came as a travel writer while working on articles
and the Panhandle section of a Florida guidebook. I imme-
diately loved your library, your old homes, your history, and
the tranquil lake. Since then, returning again and again,
I have had the outsider's pleasure of witnessing exciting
changes and growth, the continuing restoration of homes
and buildings, and, especially, the rebirth of the "Winter
Chautauqua," now known as the Florida Chautauqua Cen-
ter. I have attended more than half-a-dozen such assem-
blies over the years, as both presenter and participant.
The 13th Annual Assembly, which ran from January 31
to February 3, was, without question, the best ever, offer-
ing an array of rich and diverse opportunities for learning.
While some subjects may have been controversial at times,
to experience the whole program was to be challenged by
a thoughtful balance of well-presented viewpoints. The
opportunity to hear such a wide variety of speakers and
teachers share their expertise over a single weekend is a
rare happening in this age of haste and sound-bites. And
having "The Presidency" as the'Assembly's theme this ex-
citing election year was a masterful choice.
Coming from Texas, I always look forward to getting
better acquainted with some of the friendly people of De-
Funiak Springs and Walton County, as well as those who
come from as far away as New York, Canada and the West
Coast. I live in a university town, yet we have nothing
quite like this event to enrich us. It is a treasure.
This year especially, the beautifully restored Chautau-
qua Hall, the numerous reenactments, the musical perfor-
mances, and the involvement of young people from the local
schools were just some of the ingredients that would make
any community proud.
I can't help but feel that those winter folk who came
down a century ago to gather and learn beside your lovely
lake would be pleased indeed.

The Walton County Art League would like to thank all
the artists who participated and/or demonstrated in our
Art show during the Florida Chautauqua Center Assembly.
There was a tremendous variety of art exhibited includ-
ing framed art, pottery, dolls and photography, everything
from eclectic to traditional. If you missed it this year, make
sure to come next year. It is well worth the effort!
We would like to give a special, thanks to the'Florida
Chautauqua Center and Diane Pickett for their invitation
and support of our show and to Walton County Art League
member Jerri Whitehead for organizing this show for the
past five years. Our thanks also to the following people
Debbie Baker, Laura Booth, Diane Day, Jan and Steve
Hannon, Charles Hinson, Skippy and Ben Hoffman, Pat
Huffman, Barbara and Bill Kellogg, Cheryl kross, Dottie
Rogers, Sashus Sconiers and Marvin Tweedy. Their hard
work and dedication helped make the show a huge suc-
cess.
We would also like to invite everyone to visit the Walton
County Art League's booth at the Chautauqua Assembly
scheduled for February 21 through February 24.

Editor:
Congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make
this year's Chautauqua Festival one of the best. The theme,
"A Journey into the American Presidency," couldn't have
been timelier.
Thank you for highlighting one of our greatest presi-
dents, Jimmy Carter. At age 82 he is still an ambassador
of the values of peace and justice throughout the world.
He's worked as a servant to others, traveling the world to
advance human rights, alleviate suffering, and raise living
standards in the poorest countries. His life has been dedi-
cated to helping to resolve conflicts and diminish .human
suffering. Thousands of children in third-world countries
will never suffer from river blindness or die a painful death
from tapeworms because of his push for preventive medical
care.
My favorite program was the Winged Ambassadors, an
excellent demonstration of birds of prey in action. These
raptors were brought to us by Jim Fowler so we would have
an opportunity to see them up close and personal. Undis-
tracted by the cannon fire and the crowds, they put on a
great show.
Sadly, Jim's keynote speech was replaced at the last
minute. His message about the environment was of utmost
importance to all of us. Florida is one of tle states most vul-
nerable to the effects of climate change and to our continual
misuse of our natural world.
The program change was the only discordant note in an
event supposedly sponsored to promote an open exchange
of ideas. Jim Fowler has worked for over 40 years to keep us"
connected with nature and all living things. He should not:
have been replaced at the last minute as keynote speaker.
Karl Rove could have been scheduled elsewhere if his pre-
sentation was necessary.
Many of us were both disappointed and confused that an
occasion for good will, education and fellowship was used
for political purposes, and that people from all over the
country were denied a much needed message. We owe Jim
a huge apology.

Editor:
Kudos to the editor, Ron Kelley, for his editorial "Ques-
tioning the Answers." Your comments on illegal immigra-
tion and the depletion of social security funds by Congress
is right on target!
Charles Hinson Sr.
DeFuniak Springs

Editor:
Recent editorials about "Democrats' high-priced health
plans" frames the right-wing view of our Democratic can-
didates efforts to "fix" our current inadequate, overly-ex-
pensive health care system. However, they do not tell the
"whole story" of our health care quagmire.
According to the majority of studies that rank interna-
tional health care costs and effectiveness among most of
the worlds developed countries, health care in the, United
States is ranked in the middle or at the bottom in health
care for citizens. The cost is at least twice as much per per-
son. We pay about three times as much for health care per
person as the U.K., Sweden, and Italy. All countries stud-
ied, except South Africa, provide health care for all citizens,
from birth until death.
These health care rankings are based on such health care
measurements as quality, access, efficiency, equity, and
healthy lives. Some were based on specifics like leukemia,
cancer, kidney transplant, and heart-attack survival rates.
Details of these studies can be found on-line,;just Google
"international health care rankings." They are available for
everyone to read, study and come up with their own conclu-
sions. Please do!
Many affluent citizens now go to countries like India for
major medical care. They realize they can get major sur-
gery and aftercare/vacation for about half of the cost in our
country. However, this may change if the current free-fall
in the value of our dollar continues.
What the editors and all citizens should be asking is
"Why are we paying at least twice as much as other coun-
tries and getting at best middle of the road health care?" I
believe it is because we have allowed our health care to be
completely controlled by drug, insurance, and HMO organi-
zations instead of controlling it ourselves. Other countries
control or eliminate these costs. Do the editors not believe
our citizens are capable of dramatically reducing these costs
and improving the quality of health care for all American
citizens? I believe we can.
Please, give all citizens better and affordable health care,
then let these "companies" feel free to demonize us with di-
visive rhetoric to their hearts content. They spent over $1.3
billion denigrating Hillary Clinton when she tried to start a
"government health care for all" plan in the early 90s. What
Democrats are proposing is morally the right thing to do
and can be financially the right thing to do. Let's just do it.

ceived?


KENDRA UPSHAW
DeFuniak Springs


"When I was an under-
graduate at Albany State
University, I got a singing
cupid telegram. He had'the
little diaper and wings. It
was very funny."


LACEYALFORD
DeFuniak Springs


KIMKIRBY
DeFuniak Springs


"I think it was 2003, and I
was divorced. Everyone was
getting flowers and candy,
and I was kidding with some
of the other employees at the
Chattahoochee Department
of Public Works about it. So
they brought me a ceramic
Chief Osceola and Renegade
statue they had found on the
street. I still have it today.
I call it my 'garbage valen-
tine'."


"I got my first vehicle
for Valentine's Day, from
my mother. It was a Hon-
dd Passport. I drove until
things started messing up
and I had to trade it in."

"I was working in an of-

asked me what I was going

ing. Why do the men always
have to give the wives pres-
ents, but the men never get
anything?' Then a. florist
walked in with two dozen

up in a gorilla suit and de-

Broadus reflects on life's changes and blessings


In honor of Black History
Month, the Herald-Breeze is
presenting a series of articles
on notable Walton County
citizens. Editor


REVEREND TYRONE
BROADUS still preaches ev-
ery first and third Sunday at
Saint Mark Baptist Church
in Flowersview. (Photo by
Chris.Manson)


By CHRIS MANSON

Rev. Tyrone L. Broadus
has enjoyed an interesting
life as a pastor, retired de-
tective, and one-time mem-
ber of the U.S. Army Honor
Guard. Broadus experienced
the civil rights struggle
firsthand during Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King's march on
Washington, D.C. in 1963.
"Having been a part of the
birth of the dream, I made
myself an army of one and
tried my best to make a dif-
ference in society," he said,
recalling King's famous
speech.
"Justice Thurgood Mar-
shall said he didn't become
a lawyer for all the money
he could make," said Broa-
dus, who can be found at the
pulpit of Saint Mark Bap-
tist Church in Flowersview
every first and third Sun-


day. "He wanted to make a
difference so society could
be a better place. I feel the
same way. I've tried to make
a difference in every com-
munity I've lived in. Even
though things are moving
slow in DeFuniak Springs,
I'm proud to be a resident."
Broadus has lived here
for a little over 20 years, at
the home he shares with his
sister and mother. Prior to
that, he resided in Washing-
ton, D.C., where he served
as a police detective. After
being injured in the line of
duty, Broadus took a dis-
ability retirement at the age
of 28.
He became involved with
the ministry in the 1970s af-
ter wondering "why a young
man had been cut down in
his youth." Broadus soon re-
alized he had another call-
ing and graduated from the


first class of the Washington
Saturday College School
of Religious Education in
1977.
A couple years later, he
came back to Florida as a
member of the Mt. Nebo
Missionary Baptist Church
in DeFuniak Springs. He
returned to D.C. where he
was ordained as a minister
at True Gospel Missionary
Baptist Church in 1985.
When he finally settled
here in 1987, Broadus and
Rev. Jesse Washington
shared minister duties at Mt.
Nebo. After. Pastor Eugene
E. Moore retired, Washing-
ton stepped up, followed by
Broadus in 1995. "I did this
for 10 years," said Broadus.


"I got sick and thought I was
on the verge of burnout, so I
decided to retire in favor of a
younger, healthier pastor."
Broadus figured his days
as a pastor were over, but
was called to Saint Mark
in June 2007. "The minis-
try is a labor of love," said
Broadus. "I don't look at it
as a job, but a way to give
back to the community and
thank God. I just turned 64
last Sunday. As I look back,
I can see what the Lord has
done for me."
He is currently gather-
ing information for a picto-
rial autobiography covering
"from the age of two up to
today." Broadus said, "If
somebody had asked me 50


years ago to write how I'd
want my life to go, I would
not have written it the way
God orchestrated it. A lot of
people think you're boasting
about who you are and what,
you've done, but ifI don't tell
you how good God has been
to me, how will you know;
what he's done for me?"
While stationed at Fort:
Myers from 1965 to 1967,!
Broadus was part of the
Presidential Salute Battery,
participating in funerals of
servicemen. "The sad part
was seeing the servicemen
come home and not have
any family members present.
during the funeral. It was

"GOD HAS BLESSED US that we've made some great change and there are more op-
portunities for African-Americans," says Rev. Tyrone Broadus, seen here with a collection
of photos and news clippings from his life. (Photo by Chris Manson)




Relay-Lauds enlisted teams


DeFuniak Springs Relay
for Life chair Lynn Touch-
ton and American Cancer
Society community rep-
resentative Paniela Kart-
man have released the list
of Relay fundraising teams
registered as of this date
for the 2008 Relay effort.
These teams organize a va-
riety of events to bring in
money for the fight against
cancer, and most also con-
tribute a focused presence
with campsites at the Relay
itself, scheduled for April 5
at Harbeson Field.
"We hope members of our
community will honor these
teams and keep an eye out
for events and other oppor-
tunities to contribute to the
cause," said Touchton. She
added that some efforts,
such as raffles, can take
place over an extended pe-
riod. Kartman pointed out
that all the Relay activities
are carried out by volunteers
giving freely of their time
and work, remarking that
"often they even contribute
the out-of-pocket expenses
of their benefits, too."
The roster comprises
the following teams, listed
in order of their registra-
tion, with team captains in


parentheses: First United
Methodist Church of DFS
(Tom Baker); Mossy Head
Miracle Marchers, repre-
senting Mossy Head Baptist
Church (Erica Mason and
JoAnn Petty); Army Avia-
tion Center Federal Credit
Union (Tanya Lightner);

(Angel Harris); Reach out
Walton County (Amy Bell

Poo Fighters, representing
CH2MHill OMI; and Kirby's
Crusaders, representing the

Touchton also expressed
her gratitude to the local
Pizza Hut for its generous
donation of enough pizzas
to satisfy over 45 adults
and approximately 15 chil-
dren at the January team
.captains' meeting. Kartman
added that, although the
DFS Relay is close to reach-
ing its original 2008 goal of
teams, "new teams are al-
ways welcome and needed.
The only requirement for
establishing a team is a
$100 registration fee. The
rest is up to you." For ques-
ti6ns, call Lynn Touchton at

SAmbassadors send coffee


Ito Naval Reserve unit


Recently, a group of youth
ambassadors from Walton
County decided to do a good
turn for some active-duty
reservists.

Lt. Julie Moss and her
Florida Naval Reserve Unit
are currently deployed to
Kuwait. During their de-
ployment, they have limited
means of procuring enough
coffee to fuel their double-
shift duties.
Sassy Bogart, Krislynn
McLaney, Angel Garland,
and Kylie Smith heard about
Lt. Moss's holiday wish for a
steaming cup of coffee (over
a local message board), they
decided to send a small to-
ken of their appreciation to
Lt. Moss and her military
comrades. After shipping a
30-pound box of coffee, fla-
vored creamiers, Christmas
candies, various sweeten-
ers and a personal letter to
Lt. Moss, the girls anxiously
waited for an e-mail confir-
mation that the box had ar-
rived.
A short time later, Lt.
Moss sent a letter thanking
the girls for their thoughtful
generosity. In part, the let-
ter reads:
"Thank you so much for
the box of treats you sent
for my unit. I passed them
out this morning. The fudge
from your mom was a big
hit. We are deployed as NA-
VELSG FWD GOLF. Our

ing for the upcoming Chautauqua Assembly.



Chautauqua Assembly II


By RON KELLEY

The dust has hardly set-
tled from the Chautauqua
Assembly, presented by the
Florida Chautauqua Cen-
ter, and DeFuniak Springs
is readying itself for the
next Chautauqua Assembly,
presented by the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly, Inc.
(FCA).
While the two Chautau-
qua groups bear a similar
name and format, the pro-
grams are very different.
With the theme, "Where Do
We Go From Here," the new
Chautauqua Assembly will
feature a keynote address
by Dr. Harry Pritchett on
"Christian ethics: Cloning,
Conservation and Control."
The second keynote address
will come from Disney ex-
ecutive Mark Jones, who'll
speak on "Chautauqua and
Disney Values-based Suc-
cess." Attendees -can also
take a pictorial visit to
Chautauqua, New York,
the birthplace of the early
Chautauqua movement.
With a Frank Qapra film
festival and the premier
of the Chautauqua Radio
Companion, FCA director
Ann Robinson said there
are plenty of entertaining
surprises for every taste.
"It has been a wonder-
fully interesting year pre-
paring for this event and we
are all very excited about


the program," she said.
One difference is the use
of experts close to home.
Robinson noted that there
are people in south Walton
and from other areas in the
county that are considered
experts in their own fields.
While a majority of Assem-
bly participants are from
other regions in the country,
Robinson said, "We have un-
tapped resources right here
and it's been our intention
to include some of these ex-
traordinary people."
She also noted the large
contingency of volunteers
that will be helping with the
program. "We have over 100
volunteers. The level of sup-
port for this Chautauqua
Assembly has been positive-
ly overwhelming and we're
so grateful."
Sacred Heart CEO Roger
Hall will speak on "Where
We Are Now in Health
Care" and Master Gardener
Dara Dobson will present
a program called "Cleans-

Although Ann Robinson
and others have been work-
ing on this event for the last
year, she's quick to make
the distinction that it's not
her Chautauqua Assembly.
"It doesn't belong to any
one person. It belongs to the
people of DeFuniak Springs.
The winter Chautauqua is
an integral part of the his-
tory of Walton County and
DeFuniak Springs that's
how the town came into be-
ing. Chautauqua belongs to
us all."

at the Walton County Tax
Collector's Office. A hand-
crafted cedar chest' made
and donated by- Katie's un-
cle, Tyrone Cosson, will be
auctioned off to the high-
est bidder during a silent

office are hosting to help


raise money for the Cossons.
Other fundraisers include a
Valentine's Day Bake Sale,
an Intranet auction site,

from an employee-run snack
bar.
"Support from the com-
munity has been fantastic,"
said Kaye Hutchinson, fund-

office. "We have had indi-
viduals donate baked goods
for the bake sale, items have
been donated from county
employees for our Intranet

many local residents have
generously donated mon-

overwhelmed and sincerely
appreciative of the fundrais-
ing efforts," said Hutchin-
I


son.
In addition, other local
businesses and offices are
joining in the fundraising
efforts. The employees of
the Walton County Clerk of
the Court are selling tick-

in the Sun" basket, full of
items to enjoy in the up-
coming months. The Crazy
Patch quilt store is also sell-

fying time could result in a
continued lack of candidates
for the position.
The Council unanimously
approved two contracts with
Peters Municipal Associates
Inc. for new street signage
and sidewalk construction.
The total number of signs
and post are 248 and will
cover replacement in the
southeast quadrant of the
city. The sidewalk replace-
ment will include Burdick

raised more than $45,000.
Rinker said the event would

for four nights and on the
weekends that caused us to

cil. Morrison to the Council,
"I'm happy to be here and I
think we are going to have a
great success with our plans

himself to the Council. John-
son told the Council that he
has 33 years of experience
with the corrections depart-
ment and he had been a pri-
or resident. "My wife and I
always loved it here. We had
property for a long time, but
started thinking we weren't
going to get to come back
and we sold it. Wish we had
hung onto it now." Johnson
said with a smile.
The owners of Legacy
Cove LCC received unani-
mous approval to change
the zoning and land use de-
scriptions from agriculture
to light industrial for prop-
erty along Hwy. 90 West
and North 20th Street.
City Planner Greg Scoville
told the Council that these
changes would help make
for "a more uniform use of
the land," since a majority
of the property is already


considered light industrial.
Marshall Adkinson ap-
proached the Council with
a request for the release of
$15,000 from their law en-
forcement automation fund.
The money is earmarked to
upgrade laptops for patrol
cars as well as server equip-
ment for the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD) base to patrol com-
munications., Adkinson also
ask the Council to allow the
DFSPD to donate desktop
computers, printers and a
television to the much-antic-
ipated Boys and Girls Club,
opening in a few months.
The Council approved all of
Adkinson's requests unani-
mously.
The Council approved
contributing 20 percent (or
$8,000) to match the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion (FDOT) grant of 80,per-
cent (or $32,000) to purchase
and install new runway
markers for the DeFuniak
Springs Municipal Airport.
The Council also approved
to update the airport's
overlay district and height
zoning ordinance. The ordi-
nance has not been updated
since 1977 and it is designed
to protect airspace and land-
ing space needed around the
airport from being impacted
by development.

Williams Road closed to through traffic


Williams Road is cur-

east and west to connect
CR-1087 and U.S. 331, just
north of the Oak Hills com-
munity. The road closed at
Mill Creek Road on Wednes-
day, February 13. The clo-
sure was to give county road
crews an opportunity to re-
place one of two bridges and
will culminate in the even-
tual paving of the popular
rural road.
A portion of Williams


Road will be closed for the
building of the new con-
crete bridge for at least
eight weeks. Residents and
drivers familiar with this
area are encouraged to use
Adams Road as an alter-
native route to bypass the

for years," he says. "While
the project may cause local
drivers to be inconvenienced
during the next few months,
the improved road will be
safer and more convenient
for all of us to use for years

Accused in 2006 Freeport killing,

Harrington found mentally incompetent


By BRUCE COLLIER
Richard Harrington, 30,
has been found not compe-
tent to stand trial. for his
alleged involvement in a
2006 homicide in Freeport.
Walton County Circuit
Court 5udge Kelvin Wells
had ordered a psychological
evaluation of Harrington,
who was sent to the Flori-
da State Hospital in Chat-
tahoochee last December.
Harrington faces charges
of second-degree murder in
the Sept. 16, 2006 killing of
Terance Keefe. The victim
was stabbed and beaten to
death outside a bar in Free-
port. Two other defendants,
Terry Godwin and Matthew
Godwin, have already plead
in the case. Matthew plead-
ed guilty on June 21'to at-
tempted manslaughter, and


received a sentence of five
years. Terry pleaded guilty
in June to voluntary man-
slaughter, and is serving 10
years.
Harrington's evaluation
was ordered when it was ob-
served that he was unable to
assist his attorney in prepar-
ing his case. He will remain
in a mental hospital, with
periodic re-evaluations, un-
til he is determined to be fit
to stand trial. If he has not
improved after five years,
or after a time determined
by a judge if it appears that
he would become compe-
tent, the charges could be
dismissed. By statute, such
dismissal is "without preju-
dice," meaning that charges
could be re-filed if Har-
rington becomes competent
to stand trial. This is a dif-


ferent determination than
that of not guilty by reason
of insanity, an affirmative


defense that must be plead
and proven by the defen-
dant.

PITS


FROM FRONT


.ments about the proposal.
"We have a neighborhood
there and we want to pro-
tect our neighborhood," said
Rock Hill Road resident Ei-
leen West.
Leona Lyall, a resident
of nearby High Lonesome
Road, commented that resi-
dents are "terrorized" when
they see dump trucks from
the borrow pits coming to-
ward them on the road at
high speed.
"This is not what I moved
here for," said George Os-
burn.
"We understand your
concerns...we agree with
many of your concerns," Pat
Blackshear, Walton County
planning and development
services director, told the
citizens. "However, many of
your concerns go beyond this
man's property," she said of
Perry.
"You need some help to-
day," she said, regarding
the situation with the pro-
liferation of borrow pits and
dump truck traffic in the
Rock Hill Road area.
Blackshear observed that
there is "an intense mix-
ture of traffic on a roadway
where there is residential
traffic too.
"My concern is for the
traveling public...and the
safety of children who travel
the road in school buses,"
Blackshear continued.
She stated her intent to
put in a plan in place for im-


BUSES FRC
the board that it would cost
the district an additional
$71,960 to purchase the
buses with air-conditioning,
the cost of one whole bus
without air-conditioning.
Work went onto explain
that it was his understand-
ing that a new work-bay
and air-conditioning techni-
cian for each 25 buses would
be standard requirement as
well as an additional cost to


Work also told the board
that, with tinted windows
and the white reflective strip
ontop of every bus, tempera-
tures inside the buses were
15 degrees less than outside
temperatures. Work sug-
gested the funds be used
to implement a new global


provements, including the
addition of turn lanes, to
the roadway in the interest
of safety. This plan would
include Perry's participa-
tion should his project go
forward, she noted.
Blackshear said that
planners are now research-
ing what borrow pits exist
in the Rock Hill Road area.
One difficulty, she comment-
ed, is that apparently some
of these pits "just started
up" over the years without
going through any develop-
ment order process with the
county as commercial busi-
nesses.
She displayed an aeri-
al map of the area which
showed numerous apparent
borrow pits. However, one
could not tell from looking
at the map which are cur-
rently in operation. "I was
surprised there were so
many," Blackshear said.
She said the planning
department is now inves-
tigating what borrow pits
are operating in the Rock
Hill Road area. "What we do
know is that several are in
violation," she said.
Blackshear said that Wal-
ton County Code Enforce-
ment will be addressing the
matter of borrow pits that
are in violation. Code En-
forcement recently directed
one pit to shut down opera-
tion pending the resolution
of issues, she noted.
Blackshear explained

positioning system (GPS)
hardware that will be able
to record any incidents on
buses as well as track their
speed and location. Work
said, "We get calls that this
bus is speeding down a road,
or something else is wrong,
and these types of systems
will take care of that. We
just pull up the info from
the GPS and we always
'know what is going on with
-, ... .i... .1.. ... ,1.., -, ". rl


GPS would cost $1,700 per
unit. The board considered
Work's suggestion, but took
no action regarding a GPS
system.
Discussion then ensued
about which counties had
air-conditioning on their
buses. Board members


that borrow pits that went
into operation prior to the
adoption of the Walton
County Comprehensive
Plan in the mid-1990s have
a vested status and are not
under the county's purview.
The latter businesses are
not legally allowed to dam-
age the environment and
are under the regulatory
authority of the state De-
partment of Environmental
Protection and the Water
Management District, she
noted.
"Those are going to be a
little harder to get our arms
around," Blackshear said of
the older borrow pits. She
indicated that county staff
will be in contact with the
regulatory agencies on any
issues that need to be ad-
dressed with these busi-
nesses.
Regarding the Azland
Mining proposal, according
to the county staff report,
"No adverse impacts from
smoke, exhaust, emissions,
lighting, dust or odors are
anticipated due to the na-
ture and location of the op-
eration. Minimal noise im-
pact may be expected during
operation hours of 6 a.m.
to 5 p.m., Monday through
Saturday."
County staff have recom-
mended a six-foot high fence
around the excavation area
to mitigate impacts on sur-
rounding neighborhoods
and residences. Blackshear
also called for buffers on all
sides and a vegetative buf-
fer in excess of 50 feet on the
side of the property border-
ing the residential areas.


agreed that Washington and
Holmes County had them,
but Bay did not. Work told.
the board the idea of retro--
fitting the buses with air--
conditioning was just too ex -
pensive. Chairman Darrell
Barnhill asked, "Why ca a
these two small districts al f-
ford it and we can't?" Boar d
member Sharon Robert s
echoed Barnhills sentimen t.

The county is recommend-
ingf a 100-foot wetland buf-
fer i from the approximately
28, acres of wetlands on the
pr o'ject site. A 50-foot shore-
lit ie protection buffer is be-
in ig required, as well, from
a creek running across the
property. Gopher tortoises
fc ,und on the property must
b .e safely relocated from two
a' Active burrows found on the
s ite. Blackshear also stated
t hat there is some evidence
t hat architectural artifacts
r nay be an issue to be ad-
Siressed on the site.
i She said it will be nec-
assary to ensure that exca-
Svation does not negatively
impact wetlands on the
property and that stormwa-
ter drainage does not dam-
age the creek.
A reclamation plan will
be required once excavation
is finished on the site. Black-
shear suggested that recla-
mation should take place on
each five-acre portion once
digging is completed, rather
than waiting for the comple-
tion of all excavation on the
property. The property is to
be reshaped and planted in
native longleaf pine.
"I do feel you have a long
way to go with this project to
make it compatible," Black-
shear commented to the ap-
plicant. She said the goal
should be to keep neighbor-
hood impacts "minimal,"
and added, "It should not be
an eyesore...not be a burden
on the community."
West spoke against ap-
proval of the project, calling
it "a de facto heavy indus-
try" being proposed in an


ing the original agreement
without having a chance to
discuss it with her.
Board member Mark Da-
vis expressed to the board,
"I'm having mixed emotions
about this vote without Mrs.
Anderson here to provide
some guidance." Bill Laird
spoke up and said, I'm
having a hard time with this
one, too." The Board agreed
finally to put it to a vote
with Laird, Wilkerson and
Davis voting against air-
conditioned buses,--overrid-
ing Barnhill and Roberts.
Later Anderson told the


agricultural land use area.
"This land use is not in ac-
cordance with the compre-
hensive plan," she main-
tained.
"It marginalizes our par-
ticular neighborhood," said
Mark Madama, adding that
this is already "a growing
single-family area," that
would potentially be attrac-
tive to new personnel being
added at Eglin Air Force
Base.
Madama remarked that
people would not be likely
to buy homesites in Walton
County if they found out
that someone could come in
and put a borrow pit next to
their home.
Seemingly the neighbors'
worst fear was that the pro-
posed borrow pit would ulti-
mately turn into a landfill;
several expressed this con-
cern.
Blackshear explained
that this is definitely not
part of what is being pro-
posed, and, that approval
for use as a landfill would
require regulatory agency
approval plus county pub-
lic hearings. "I honestly do
not see that happening," she
said.
The procedure for con-
sideration of this proposed
borrow pit development will
vary from the usual, due to
Walton County's summer
2007 adoption of an ordi-
nance providing for borrow
pits to be approved as "spe-
cial exceptions" within ag-
ricultural land use areas.
Normally borrow pits would
be restricted to industrial
land use areas.


Herald, "I haven't taken a
position on this. If it was a
safety, health or wellness is-
sue, I would speak on it, but
the purchases are a budget
decision and those are up to
the board members."
The WCSD discussed ex-
panding their bus routes
for the new school in Mossy
Head. The new routes will
start at the east boundary
at Boy Scout Road, south
of U.S. 90, and King Lake
Road and then proceed
-north. of U.S. 90 to Engles
Road and include offshoots
Sof that area. The service

The ordinance specifies
that, rather than these ap-
plications being considered
by Walton County Planning
Commission and Board of
County Commissioners, it
will be the duty of the Wal-
ton County Zoning Board of
Adjustment (ZBA) to decide
on the applications. Howev-
er, the proposal will undergo
at least one more review by
the technical review com-
mittee before going to the
ZBA.
There have been chal-
lenges from the public re-
garding the new special
exceptions approval proce-
dure, including objections
from some of the Rock Hill
Road residents. Blackshear
said the amendment setting
up the new procedure had
been initiated years ago, and
that she had picked up the
proposed amendment when
she came on board with the
county in 2005 and finished
it. The state Department
of Community Affairs has
found the amendment in
compliance with the coun-
ty's growth management
documents. However, Black-
shear said she now intends
to request that the BCC look
at the amendment again in
view of recent concerns that
have been raised.
,The Azland Mining pro-
posal is scheduled to be
discussed again by the
technical review committee
at their March 5 meeting,
which is to begin at 8:30
a.m. and take place at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex. The meeting is open
to public attendance:


area will continue north on
Engles Road to Dr. Nelson
Road, then west on Raley
Road to Williams Road and
continue west on Williams
Road, north on Adams Road,
to Hwy. 1087 and then on to
the county line. The Board
said the extension of the
bus route should help en-
rollment numbers pick up
at the new school complex
built in Mossy Head.

The next scheduled meet-
-ing-of-the WCSBis set for-5
p.m. at South Walton High
School on Feb. 19.

heartbreaking," he said.
When the Pentagon es-
tablished the continuous
graveside honor guard for
slain President John F. Ken-
nedy, Broadus became one
of its first members. "The
Pentagon decided to treat
the Kennedy grave like
the Tomb of the Unknown
Soldier," he said. "It was a
great experience. Can you
imagine a little fellow being
in the presence of such great
people at great historical
moments?"
Broadus often carries
around a thick volume on
the lives of famous African-
Americans, but he said he
has been inspired by figures
of all races, among them
King, Kennedy, his old
scoutmaster, and President
Lyndon B. Johnson. "The
greatest influence from a
spiritual point of view is Je-
sus Christ, because he made
the ultimate sacrifice and
demonstrated the greatest
love," said Broadus.
In 2004, Broadus in his
capacity as second vice-pres-
ident of the local NAACP
chapter began an effort
to have a portion of U.S. 90
designated in honor of King.
"At the time, the King fam-
ily was going through some
changes,", he said. "Rep.
Don Brown's office didn't'
get a positive response from
them, and it kind of fizzled
out."
Last year, Broadus and
other NAACP members
went to Tallahassee and re-
newed their request. He said
the state Legislature would
likely approve approve the
designation before they end
the current session.
"Thank God, I am well-


FROM PAGE 11-A

known and received by most
of the officials in public of-
fice," said Broadus. "They
try to help me whenever I
have what they consider to
be a good idea."
Broadus expressed ad-
miration for contemporary
African-American leaders,
including Julian Bond, Flor-
ida Sen. Tony Hill, and U.S.
Sen. Barack Obama. "The
fact that we have Obama vy-
ing for the presidency is in-
dication of Dr. King's dream
of equality beginning to be
realized."
Broadus also sits on the
board of the Walton County
Heritage Museum, where
visitors can take in a display
celebrating Black History
Month Tuesdays through
Friday from 1 to 4 p.m.
Diane Merkel, chair of the
Museum's board of trustees,
said she 'hoped to expand
the display and encouraged
the public to loan or donate
photos. "The black commu-
nity has been so supportive
of events we've done," she
said.
For Black History Month,
Broadus will visit the Wal-
ton Correctional Institution
to talk about the life of au-
thor, statesman, and aboli- .
tionist Frederick Douglass.
He has also spoken to stu-
dents at Walton High School
and Maude Sander Elemen-
tary School.
"I try to tell people today
that they ought to document
their history so that when
you tell people what you
have done, they won't think
you're blowing hot air," he
said. "One picture is worth
a thousand words, and the
Lord has blessed me with a
lot of pictures."

Sister Doris Wheat fell and
hit her head on Dec. 6, 2007,
at her home in DeFuniak
Springs. She was rushed to
Healthmark Regional Medi-

kept overnight. The doctor
said she suffered a concus-
sion on the back of her head,
and Wheat was released the
next day. Wheat continued


to have headaches, but de-
cided she wanted to visit
her daughter and grandson
in Clermont, FL. during
the Christmas holidays. On
Christmas night, she sat
down on the side of the tub
for a bath, and called for her
daughter, because she could
not move her right side.
The family called an am-
bulance, and Wheat was
rushed to the hospital. Med-

Stone age and primitive art

festival held near Sopchoppy


By JEFFREYPOWELL

According to research
conducted by The Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP),
Native American people
have inhabited the conflu-
ence of what is now known
as the Dead River and the
Ochlockonee River 'for at
least 12.000 years. A pre-
Columbia;, sheJi, .pmidden
rest ina"'toig. %t hiore of
the Dead River was identi-
fied and researched in 1998.
The midden dates to the
Weedon Island period of
approximately 1,500 years
ago.
To celebrate the history
of the area, the Ochlockonee
River State Park recently
celebrated
its first annual Stone Age
and Primitive Art festival.
The festival was intended to
allow the visitor to see first-
hand how early humans
lived and worked with the
tools nature had provided.
Dozens of demonstrators
and vendors displayed the
art of flintknapping (mak-
ing arrowheads), using shell
tools for woodwork, tanning
hides, bow construction and
basket-weaving.
The three-day event was
held on February 8 through
10. Friday's event was at-
tended by many local school
children on field trips. Of
special interest to the chil-
dren was the use of deer
brains in the process of tan-
ning hides. At the first sight
of the liquid into which the
hides were to be dipped, any
number of children could be
seen fleeing the scene, only
to return for another look.


According to tanner Da-
vid McCracken, the use of
brains in tanning is as old
as the process itself.
The Ochlockonee River
State Park consists of 543
acres of Florida, pine flat-
woods. The park is home to
many rare and endangered
species including the red-
cockaded woodpecker, black


bears and fox squirrels.
Swimming, canoeing .and
fishing areas are also easily
accessible.
The park is located at 429
State Park Road, 40 miles
south of Tallahassee near
the town of Sopchoppy. For
more information concern-
ing upcoming events call
(850) 962-2771.

HOME #1 IS A 5,726 square foot gulf-front residence in the premiere gat-
ed community of The Retreat. Drawn by Dawn Thurber and crafted by John
Willis Homes, the five-bedroom home located at 36 St. Lucia Lane features a
galley kitchen with professional grade appliances, antique hardwood floors,
a limestone fireplace, secluded swimming pool and custom radial staircase,
and stunning views up and down the Gulf of Mexico. The retreat is a 90 acre
secluded neighborhood that sits along 3,000 feet of Gulf frontage that offers
a private beach club, access to Draper Lake and permanent nature preserve
areas.


HOME #4 IS THE "Art House," located at 1 Pleasant Avenue in the green
township of Prominence. In addition to showcasing its artistic design and
modern and luxurious amenities, this three-story, 3,831 square foot home
will serve as an exhibit for local fine artwork, a new addition to the Valen-
tine Tour of Homes. Designed by South Carolina architect Bob Ellis, this
fortified town home was finished with travertine and teak flooring, a pri-
vate elevator, picture molding, a custom kitchen, stone flooring and showers,
over 500 square feet of outdoor living area, two master suites, Smart Home
technology and Energy Star/Energy Wise certification. The. Prominence de-
velopment team is dedicated to building a town that is green-sensitive with
minimal maintenance while strong enough to withstand the elements.


HOME #2AT 879 Blue Mountain Road provides a unique 360-degree view
of natural coastal waters as it sits along 487 feet of Gulf frontage and 688
feet of Big Redfish Lake. The 6,743 square foot private estate was inspired by
the architectural designs of Greene & Greene, the company that defined the
Arts and Crafts movement in the United States. True to this form, Florida
Haus architects Cheryl Troxel and Ty Nunn took special care that the design
of the main house and the 1,613 square foot guest house coaxed the coast
indoors. Some of the home's special features include a floating mahogany
staircase, stained glass windows and doors, a gourmet kitchen and a five-
room master suite.


HOME #5 IS located in the beautiful neo-traditional town of Rosemary
Beach. 32 Abaco Lane sits on a secluded park, hidden away in a private set-
ting on the south side of 30-A with a plunge pool situated in the courtyard
between the 4,200 square foot main house and the quaint guest house. Black
dead head cypress woods have been milled into the kitchen, wet bar and
entry bath. Chicago brick and ebonized maple hardwood floors, along with
designer fabrics and exquisite yet comfortable furnishings add texture and
history to this five bedroom masterpiece. This home is a fine example of the
town's commitment to establish character and ensure integrity of the New
Urbanist Town Plan. As are all the homes in Rosemary Beach, this residence
is architecturally unique and custom designed yet an inextricable part of the
town's fabric.


HOME #3 AT 46 Majestica Circle in Seagrove Beach is a custom home
full of warmth, charm and artistic detail from all around the world. Ital-
ian glass tiles fill the floor of the entryway giving the perception of walking
on water, and Italian crushed glass makes up the kitchen island counter
top. Hand-painted tiles are featured throughout, the house, including multi-
colored Austrian tiles in the master bath. Many of the home's walls, sinks
and showers are graced with hand painted art, and local art fills the home.
This is an all electronic "Smart House" that features a home theater, sauna,
steam room and full gym.

Dear Auntie Em,
My son and his family just moved. He accepted a job a few states away. I know it's
better for his family and him career-wise, but, I really miss my grand-babies. I miss
sleep-overs and baby-sitting and spoiling them just a little. Any advice on what an
empty-nest grandma like me can do to lessen the sadness over not having them next
door everyday? Thanks for any advice you can give.
Wistful in Walton
(Name and address withheld by request)
Dear Wistful,
I'm happy for your son and family to have new job opportunity in these economical-
ly-challenged times but I do feel your sadness in losing your day-to-day interactions
with your "babies." However, I think I have a way to at least fill that void a little.
Welcome to the great, big World Wide Web the Internet. Technology continues to
give us the ability to be close to those far away. Look into some of the web-camera
technology or web-phone systems available. It's relatively inexpensive to equip two
computers at different locations with a web cam and you can just dial up your grand-
kids, with their parent's help, and see them almost every day. This way, you get to
interact with them in an almost face-to-face environment and they get to see you, too.
This may help fill a little of the void, as well as keep down long-distance phone bills.
The web cams operate over the same connection as your computer, so there are no ex-
tra charges.
Other ideas could be to schedule vacations around seeing family instead of loca-
tions. Summer vacations were meant for grandmas,too.
Closer to home, you may also consider helping out kids at your local church or in
such worthy programs as Guardian Ad Litem. This pairs adults with children, giving
the kids a voice in the court and social service system.
Your grandkids will always feel your love just as long as you express it to them, no
matter what the means of transmission. Think about this quote by Charles and Ann
Morse, "A child needs a grandparent, anybody's grandparent, to grow a little more se-
curely into an unfamiliar world."
Good luck and God bless.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2008
Movie Review


"Fool's Gold": Exes Mark the Spot


By BRUCE COLLIER
Andy Tennant's "Fool's Gold" is in the
vanguard of Valentine's Day date movies, to be
followed this week by a small host of other similarly
romantic fare, as well as the DVD release of last
year's "No Reservations." Unlike that film, "Fool's
Gold" spends little time in the kitchen or at the table.
It,starts, and ends, with action the guy kind and
lets the romance take care of itself along the way.
Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson
play Ben "Finn" Finnegan and Tess Finnegan, a
husband-and-wife treasure salvage team that are
divorced some 15 minutes into the film. Fed up with
her spouse's free-wheeling, irresponsible lifestyle,
Tess has decided to chuck it and start fresh. This
involves her taking a bread-and-butter job as
steward on the private yacht of millionaire Nigel
Honeycutt (Donald Sutherland). Nigel's a nice guy
and the work is pleasant, but far from challenging.
Finn arrives late for the divorce hearing,
having narrowly escaped execution at the hands of
"Bigg Bunny," a wealthy gangsta rapper who appears
to be a genuine gangster. Finn is into Bigg Bunny for
a bundle, having enlisted his financial support for
what has been Finn's and Tess's lifelong pursuit.
The two have spent their marriage in search of a
fabulous treasure known as the Queen's Dowry, a
half-billion in gold and jewels sunk in 1715
somewhere in the vicinity of the Bahamas. Finn has
found tangible evidence of its existence, and comes to


Tess for her help. With a little persuasion this is a
suntanned Matthew McConaughey in cutoffs and a t-
shirt, remember he persuades Tess to persuade
Nigel to back him yet again. Meantime, Bigg Bunny
learns his prey has escaped, and rival salvor Moe
Fitch (Ray Winstone) hears of the fortune's
proximity. And so the (treasure) hunt is on.
With all these macho guys running around
above and below sea level, Hudson has to handle
most of the movie's romantic chores herself. While
clearly a match for Finn in the treasure hunting
department she's the brains, he's the muscle and
moneyman Tess is clearly conflicted about the
enterprise. After all, she's just divorced this clown.
Now she has to go back to the old routine, only this
time without getting the one thing she actually does
miss about being married to Finn I'll let you figure
that out.
"Fool's Gold" is a funny hybrid, an action
adventure movie that wants you to care as much
about the romance as the adventure. Tennant may be
wanting to duplicate the enormous success of Robert
Zemeckis' "Romancing the Stone," but this film bears
more of a resemblance to Ivan Reitman's "Six Days
and Seven Nights," in that the danger here is more
real. People die, and suddenly. The bad guys are
actually pretty bad.
"Fool's Gold" is probably doing pretty well in
places like International Falls, MN., where this
week's temperatures are at -38 degrees. Shot in
Australia which apparently looks more like the


Bahamas than the actual Bahamas and in Key
West, it's one postcard after another. There's plenty
of crystalline blue-green water, sugary beaches, and
beautiful young folks with too much booze and not
enough clothing to keep them out of trouble. If you
want to see a lot of Hudson or McConaughey, here's
your chance. Wardrobe costs for them were minimal.
Both are good-looking, adept at light comedy, and
handle the physical action believably well. Their
sweet-and-sour dialogue keeps you interested, as if
we had any doubts about whether they will reunite.
Toward the end, Tennant (who also co-wrote the
screenplay) decides this actually is an adventure film
and gives us an airborne climax with elements of
"True Lies," though with less property damage.
If Halloween movies are meant to elicit
screams of terror, Christmas movies to elicit tears of
nostalgia, and summer movies to elicit buckets of
cash, what are Valentine's Week movies for?
Revenue, certainly, as always. At the same time,
maybe they carry a little whiff of spring romance,
more temperate times, or just some mild, non-graphic
sex-and-violence, suitable for couples. If "Fool's Gold"
were a restaurant, it would be a buffet. There's meat
and potatoes, but a nice dessert cart as well.
If you are looking for a date flick, pass on
"There Will be Blood" and try this one. While we're
on the subject, pretty much any film- with Daniel
Day-Lewis is probably not going to be a date film.
Unless you're seeing Amy Winehouse.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2008


We should love one another


By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


Wonderful words are
found in John's gospel,
words which if obeyed
will show our love for one


another. Look at John
13:35, "By this shall all
men know that ye are My
disciples, if ye have love
one to another." The love
spoken of here is the kind
that gives and requires
nothing in return.
We should love one an-
other. for that will help
our own personalities.
If we isolate ourselves
from others, we deny a


need of our own person-
alities. Such denials fight
against the needs of our
own souls. When Christ
tells us to love one anoth-
er, we discover that we
have passed from death
unto life because we obey
the living Lord Christ.

When we love one an-
other, we help meet the
need of others. Only with


the love of the Lord in our
hearts for others can we
show that we care about
the needs of others. All
persons have at least two
basic needs: The need to
love someone else, and
the need to be loved by
others. The unloved child
will often turn to delin-
quent or criminal activ-
ity. Perhaps the deepest
need of the human soul


is the need to be loved.
We need to love one
another because we have
been loved. What a debt
we owe to those who have
loved us in the past and
to those who love us now!
What a debt we owe to
the Lord Christ who loves
us in such a manner as to
give His life for such as
we who believe, sinners as
we are. "We love Him, be-


cause He first loved us" (1
John 4:19). It is the love of
Christ which first kindles
true love in our hearts. It
is His love which is the
motivation for our own.
We have caught Christ's
Spirit when we love one
another. It is then that
we are His disciples in
fact and deed.

Love one another!

Some courtships last and become
marriages. Others fail and end
quickly. The reasons for failure
vary, but in most instances, the
couple never really loved each
other in the way that the Bible
says a husband and wife should.
j Ask any couple who has been
married for a long time how they
have managed to stay together
and they will probably cite their
sacrificial love for each other as a
Major factor. Love really does
conquer all, even death, as God's
love for us led to the ultimate
sacrifice and gave us eternal life.

Walton boys earn playoff berth


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves quali-
fied for the Class 3A boys
basketball playoffs with a
77-49 victory over the North-
view Chiefs last week in a
District 1, Class 3A contest
played at South Walton.
James Towery, Dylan
Laird and Issac Jackson
scored 11 points apiece as
Walton raced to a 21-5 lead
and never looked back in
ending the Chiefs' season


with a 7-10 record.
Things did not go as well
for the Braves in the district
championship game. Pen-
sacola Catholic outscored
Walton 17-7 in the fourth
quarter to pick up a 50-38
win and put the Braves on
the road in the first round of
the state playoffs.
The Braves drew within
33-31 after three quarters
of play, but turnovers and
cold shooting ended their at-


tempt to knock off the Cru-
saders in the final period of
play. Tarell Bramlet, Sha-
dier Roehm and Larel Jack-
son all finished the game
with seven points apiece in
a contest that was played at
a very deliberate half-court
pace.

Game Notes: Jerry Hester
is 99-61 in his six years as
Walton's head coach. Wal-
ton will face Marianna in


the opening round of the
Class 3A boys basketball
playoffs on Thursday at 7
p.m. Marianna has won five
straight games in the series,
including two this season.
The Bulldogs hold a 15-13
record against Walton dat-
ing back to the 1992-93 sea-
son. Marianna will dress
nine seniors for the game
while Walton has seven on
the team. Marianna is 23-3
on the year.


Seahawks dominate Bulldogs


By CHUCK HINSON
South Walton jumped
into an early lead against
intracounty rival Freeport
and racked up eight runs
before the bottom of the sec-
ond inning. The South Wal-


ton girls' softball team beat
Freeport, 9-0.

It was the third straight
shut-out win for the Sea-
hawks. Shelby Watson gave
up two hits and struck out


12 for South Walton, while
racking up three hits and
two RBIs.

Casey Ogden led the of-
fense by going 4-for-4 with
three RBIs, while Brittany,,


Jay drove in three runs.
Jordan Howell had both
hits for Freeport

Walton girls fall at the buzzer


By PATRICK CASEY
The Chipley Tigers never
led the contest with the Wal-
ton Braves in the opening
round of the Class 3A play-
offs, until the final buzzer
sounded. Junior Sherina
Gonzalez threw up a shot
from the free throw line as
the last second ticked off
the clock and it dropped in
to give the Tigers a 58-56
win over the Walton Lady
Braves.

Walton, which led the
game at halftime 31-20,
saw the Tigers pick iyp the
defense over the final half
of play and force several
Braves miscues that led to
quick Chipley baskets and


allowed the Tigers to draw
the game even in the final
minutes of play.
Gonzalez, a rotund for-
ward who scored 12 of her
24 points in the final period,
was catalyst for the come-
back. She made baskets
from different areas in the
paint to keep the Tigers in
the game.
Walton built a solid lead
in the first half behind nine
points from Lee Paulk and
six from Betsy Stevenson.
The Braves shot well from
the perimeter in the open-
ing half while the Tigers
struggled to hit anything
from outside.
The second half saw Wal-
ton cool off from the floor,


then compound their prob-
lems by hitting only 10-of-23
free throws during the game,
including a paltry 7-of-18 in
the second half when extra
points could have stopped
the disastrous ending.

Walton caught a break
with less than seven sec-
onds remaining in the game
when the Tigers threw the
ball out of bounds, only to
give the ball right back to
the Tigers in front of their
own bench when Walton
turned the ball over on a
failed inbounds throw.
Stevenson finished the
game with 12 points while
Paulk added 11 and Jas-
mine Moore scored 10.


The loss ended Walton's
season with a 14-15 record.
Game Notes: Walton
is now 0-2 versus Chipley
in girls basketball playoff
games. The Tigers beat Wal-
ton in 1999 63-48 in Chipley.
Walton is 16-14 in the play-
offs, but this appears to be
the first time Walton's girls
have ever lost a game at the
buzzer in the state playoffs.
Walton's Lakeisha Parrish
hit a shot at the buzzer in
overtime against Hamilton
County in the 1993 playoffs
to send Walton to the Fi-
nal Four that season. This
game was the final contest
for Walton seniors Chelsea
Robinson, Chiarra Perkins
and Candice Smith.

time lead as they closed out
the first half with a 14-4

the victory.
Paxton trailed Laurel
Hill 39-37 entering the fi-
nal quarter of play against

The Bobcats hit 13-of-24

in the final period.
Game Notes: Paxton has
won 12 straight games. Pax-
ton is 4-0 versus Graceville
in the state basketball play-
offs. Paxton is 28-11 all-

petition in girls basketball.

Jeffrey Reese did his best
to keep the Hoboes in the

in the contest, but again got
little help from his team-
mates as no other Laurel

- if Tallahassee FAMU de-

FAMU. FAMU High is one
of only two teams to beat
Paxton on their home floor

Paxton lost to FAMU High

Area athletes sign football


By PATRICK CASEY
The University of Ala-
bama signed Melvin Ray,
a wide receiver who played
for North Florida Christian
and Tallahassee Chiles dur-
ing his high school career.
Ray, who is listed at 6-3, 195
pounds, is considered among
the top 20 of wideouts in the
country that were avail-
able to be signed this year.
As a senior he caught 53
passes for 1,058 yards and
16 touchdowns. Ray had a
67-yard punt return against
Walton in 2006 when Chiles
defeated the Braves 35-14,
but he did not catch a pass
and grew unhappy in the
Timberwolves run-first of-
fense, leading to a transfer
to NFC for his senior year.
Troy University signed
Milton athlete Talris
Brown, who played both
fullback and on the defen-
sive front for the Panthers.
The Trojans also picked up
former Tallahassee Lincoln
player Tim Lamb to help as
a defensive tackle. The 6-1,
300-pound lineman origi-
nally signed with Auburn.
Wide receiver Felton Pay-
ton also signed with the Tro-

180-pound receiver caught
30 passes for 350 yards and
four touchdowns during his

players from the north end
of the state, but they did sign
Wakulla safety C.J. Holton
last week. Holton, who is
listed at 6-2, 195 pounds,
made 65 tackles and had six
interceptions for a Wakulla
defense that was dominant
in 2007.

FSU signed Nigel Brad-
ham from Wakulla, who is
already enrolled at FSU and
expected to be one of the
Seminoles top linebackers
in the future. He finished his
senior season with 147 tack-
les, 12 sacks and four defen-
sive touchdowns. Tallahas-
see Lincoln wideout Josh
Gehres signed with FSU.
Gehres, a 6-3, 190-pound re-
ceiver, had 1,100 receiving
yards as a senior on only 29
receptions with 13 going for
touchdowns. Anthony Hill,
a 6-4, 270-pound defensive
tackle helped Pensacola
High with'eight sacks and
65 tackles during his se-
nior year. Tight end JaBaris
Little also signed with FSU
out of Tallahassee Lincoln.
Little could see immediate
playing time for a team in
need of production at that
position.
Tallahassee Godby cor-
nerback Marcus Udell
signed with Middle Tennes-
see. Udellis a 6-0, 190-pound


junior college signee who
had seven interceptions in
two years of junior.college
football.
Stanford University

Scott.
FSU lost one of the top
cornerbacks in the country
to the University of South-
ern California. Tallahassee

the Trojans over several
schools from the Southeast.
Bryant is a 6-0, 180-pound
defensive back that :opted
to sign with the West Coast
school.

South Florida signed Dan-
iel Bryant, a wide receiver
from Tallahassee Chiles.
Bryant played with Melvin
Ray, but stayed at Chiles for
his senior season. The. 6-2,
185-pound wideout caught
28 passes for 500 yards and
four touchdowns. USF also
signed Tallahassee Lincoln
quarterback B.J. Daniels.
Daniels is listed at 6-1, 195
pounds and threw for. 2,500
yards and 34 touchdowns for
the Trojans. Craig Marshall
also signed with the Bulls.
Marshall played for Choc-
taw and spent a year play-
ing junior college ball before
signing with USF. The 6-5,
260-pound defensive end,
will have three years of eli-
gibility remaining.


Florida Atlantic signed
Panama City Mosley line-
man Chase Bowers. Bowers
played both offensive line
and defensive end for the

Meyer found not guilty


By CHUCK HINSON
The NCAA found no rule
violations after their inves-
tigation, that head football
coach Urban Meyer violated
in NCAA rules. The accusa-


tions stemmed from the re-
cruitment of junior college
receiver Carl Moore.
The allegations said that
there had been possible im-


permissible telephone calls
by the football staff, but
after the investigation, the
information that the com-
mittee gathered. did not in-
dicate that any rules had


been broken.
Meyer had apparently
had the conversation with
Moore's girlfriend, current
U of F gymnast Maranda
Smith, while both were at-

After months of turmoil
and contentious media

Athletic Department has a

has been plagued with ru-
mors and stories of cheating
among athletes.

Air Force,
Among the many issues
that await Spetman are the
latest cheating scandals
among dozens of athletes,
and the last five-year slump


that major sports-football,
basketball and baseball
have been suffering.
Spetman told reporters
that he wanted to build on
the university's tradition
and help restore the univer-
sity to its original position
as an academic and athletic
powerhouse.

cruiting Smith to the gym-

violated NCAA rules by
talking to Smith, who ap-

with Moore.


It had been questioned
whether Meyer 'handed a

undeafeted New England
Patriots. This came just. a
day after figures were tal-
lied and the sports booking
agencies said they had han-
dled more than $92 million
on the game, the third-high-
est amount ever put down
on a superbowl, for the sec-


ond consecutive year.
The record for the high-
est amount of bets came in
2006 where $94.5 million
was placed on the table.
The last time the books
lost money was in 1995,
when the San Francisco


49ers destroyed the San Di-
ego Chargers, 49-26, and Ne-
vada books lost $400,000.
The payouts for the past
Superbowl were as large as
four times the original bet
because New England was
such a huge favorite to win
the game.

Maude Saunders Elementary

School hosts Honorable Judge

Kelvin Wells


On Monday, Jan. 28, the
Honorable Judge Kelvin
Wells visited two fifth-grade
classrooms at Maude Saun-
ders Elementary School.
Students in Mrs. Leddon's
and Mrs. Pinter's class-
rooms had a great time
learning about laws and
how they are made. Judge
Wells played the "candy
game" and gave out Hershey
Kisses for correct answers..


The students made laws for
their classrooms and voted
for or against them. Teach-
ers were given the right to
accept or veto the chosen
laws. Everyone realized
that laws must be fair for
everyone, not just a chosen
few. Students also learned
that everyone needs to have
a part in making and voting
for or against new laws.
Wells also explained his


job upholding and interpret-
ing laws. He too plays an
important part in interpret-
ing laws and judging fairly
every day.
Students, teachers, and
administrators enjoyed the
lessons. Maude Saunders
gives a big thanks to Judge
Wells for taking time to visit
school and teach these valu-
able lessons.

No

yet for


diner
By DOTTY NIST
Santa Rosa Beach beauty
shop owner Lisa Vander-
mate says she and her cus-
tomers "can't wait to eat"
at Santiago Diner. There is
also a new flexibility in the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code that could al-
low approval of the proposed
1950s-style diner, but after
more than two years there
has still been no green light
for the silver prefab build-
ing to open for business.
The diner building was
once in operation in Mira-
mar Beach under differ-
ent ownership. After being
purchased by the Santiagos
and moved to the north side
of U.S. 98 near Veteran's
Road, the diner hit a snag
with Walton County's Sce-
nic Corridor Standards.
Architectural approval by
the Walton County Design
Review Board (DRB) was re-
quired, since plans were for
the diner to operate within
400 feet of the U.S. 98 scenic
corridor. The scenic corridor
standards clearly prohibit
buildings with a metal sid-
ing, particularly those with
reflective finishes. For this
and other reasons, the DRB
denied approval of plans for
the diner in early spring of
2007.
With plans drawn up to
stucco the diner, the San-
tiagos' engineer William
Horn went before the Wal-
ton County Board of.County
Commissioners (BCC) in
April 2007 to ask for, ap-
proval contingent on resolv-
ing the architectural issues

"Step up, Florida"




says take a hike


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Florida Department
of Health (DOH) has kicked
off its fifth annual "Step
Up, Florida-on our way to
healthy living" statewide
campaign. County health
departments, state and lo-
cal partners, schools and
work sites will host events
throughout February and
March to promote physical
activity and healthy nutri-
tion for Floridians of all ages
and abilities.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, close
to fifty people participated


locally in the Step Up pro-
gram. The group took a 2.5
mile hike near Morris Lake
in the Topsail Hill Preserve
State Park. Morris Lake is
one of only two rare coastal
dune lakes not affected by
the encroachment of devel-
opment along its shores.
Park rangers were on hand
to guide the hikers through
the dunes and to answer
any questions they might
have. Of particular interest
to almost everyone were the
man-made dunes used many
years ago to launch missiles
into the Gulf of Mexico. Evi-


dence can still be seen of
the metal roadways called
Springfield Matting used to
keep vehicles from sinking
in the sand.
The DOH unveiled the
Step Up, Florida initiative
in 2004 to promote healthy
lifestyles. In 2008, every
county in the state is par-
ticipating.
"The statistics of Floridi-
ans who are overweight and
obese are startling," said
Chief of the DOH Bureau of
Chronic Disease Prevention
and Health Promotions Bet-
sy Wood. "Choosing health-


ier options and increasing
physical activity are two
simple ways everyone in
Florida can live a healthier
life and reverse the obesity
epidemic."
"Participation in today's
event was great, said Wal-
ton County Health Depart-
ment Senior Health Educa-
tor Jessica Franks. "We had
a huge increase from last
year."

cerning the Step Up, Florida
program call the DOH at

week of Walton County's
Coastal Dune Lake Adviso-
ry Board (CDLAB) and CBA
director Julie Terrell, a new
approach is being devel-
oped to manage the lakes.
Terrel said, "In developing
the Coastal Dune Lakes
Management Plan, we are
following the TEAM (To-
gether for Environmental
Assessment and Manage-
ment) process, which origi-
nated at the University of
Florida. The TEAM process
is a three-phase process for
developing comprehensive
and integrative lake man-
agement plans and water
resource policy. It involves
'stakeholders,' lay citizens,
and technical 'experts.' In


Phase One, all of these peo-
ple identify, define, and pri-
oritize their concerns and
potential courses of action
concerning water resource
issues. Next, pros and cons
are developed for each issue:
Once a summary is provid-
ed to everyone involved, the
come together to discuss and
ultimately vote on a course
of action deciding on a lake
management plan or water
resource policy."
Partnering with Florida
LAKEWATCH, CBA and
CDLAB issued a report
which said in part: "Walton
County contains many eco-
logical treasures, which at-

next meeting.


"We don't know
what 'as is' actually
is"' said board member
Bob Johnson, "we don't
have a complete pic-
ture of what we're
approving."

Horn unexpectedly en-
countered pro-diner senti-
ment at the BCC meeting
among commissioners, as
well as public comment fa-
vorable to the silver pre-
fab structure. Plans for the
diner were approved "as is,"
without the stucco.
In June 2007, the BCC
rescinded that approval.
The Santiagos chose not
to go back to the plans for
stuccoing. In late June,
they went before the Walton
County Zoning Board of Ad-


justment to seek a variance
to move forward with the
original plans. No variance
was granted, and the ap-
plicants were directed to go
back before the DRB.
On Feb. 7, the Santiagos
were again before the DRB.
Since their last visit, there
had been county code chang-
es that gave their project a
better chance for approval.
In early January, Walton
County had amended the
land development code to
give the DRB flexibility to
approve "deviations" with
regard to building materials
and design, as long as an ap-
proval did not '"undermine"
the goals of the scenic corri-
dor.
Advertised on the DRB
agenda had been consider-
ation of three deviations for
the diner project, related
to roof pitch, roofing and
siding materials, and mini-
mum height distance from
the eave. Walton County
Senior Planner Tim Brown
recommended approval of


all three deviations, stating
that on all required criteria
he had found no substantial
competent evidence against
approval. As part of the ap-
proval, Brown recommend-
ed almost total screening of
the diner from U.S. 98. The
applicants agreed to this
recommendation.
"We feel like this is a very
attractive 1950s vintage din-
er," said Horn as he asked
the DRB for approval of the
structure "as is," handing
out photos of the diner as it
appeared when it was in op-
eration in Miramar Beach.

The four DRB members
present said their minds
were open to approving the
deviations, but they com-
plained that they were not
furnished with a packet of
architectural, landscaping
and signage plans as usual
during their meetings, just
the photographs.
"We don't know what 'as
is' actually is," said board
member Bob Johnson, "we


don't have a complete pic-
ture of what we're approv-
ing."
Brown commented that
he had "truly believed" that
the deviations presented
that night were "the only
items of the code that they
did not meet."
However, the board mem-
bers noted that it had been
approximately a year since
they had seen plans for the
proposal, and that it would
be difficult to evaluate the
requests for deviations in
the absence of the rest of the
information.
Johnson moved to contin-
ue the item until the DRB's
March 8 meeting, at which
time the members would
review their normal packet
of materials for the proposal
along with the deviation re-
quests. According to other
recent land development
code changes, the applicants
will be now able to appeal to
the zoning board of adjust-
ments in the event of a de-
nial by the DRB.

Valentine's Day stirs up memories for Seagrove Beach couple


By CHRIS MANSON
Bobby and Beverly John-
son were married on Valen-
tine's Day 1999 at Collabo-
rations, the business they
owned in Seagrove Beach.
"He surprised me with an
impromptu wedding full of
friends, flowers, and fami-
ly," said Beverly. The couple
met, fell in love, and raised
their son and two daughters
at the eclectic art gallery
and antique shop.
In Oct. 2005, Bobby nego-
tiated a real estate deal that
included the Collaborations
property, and the couple
closed the store. Febru-
ary 14, 2006 coincided with
what Beverly dubbed "the
eve of demolition."
The couple had already
donated all of their remain-
ing art to charity. The lights
had been turned off and the
building abandoned. "I had
not been inside for several
months because it was too
hard to see the shell of our
previous life," said Johnson.
But that night, Bobby
suggested they drive over


and "check things out" as
they had noticed a strange
light emanating from inside
the building. Beverly reluc-
tantly followed him in.
"I realized that the light
was from candles that had
been placed to guide our
way," said Beverly. "Along
the path, flowers had been
placed in several vases, and
familiar quotes from our
marriage were written on
the floor in spray paint.
"We used to say, 'That
dog'll hunt' if we sold a
big piece of art or someone
brought in something fabu-
lous to sell. And 'Looks Like
We Made It' because the
girls used to sing that to
us."
Upon entering the build-
ing, Beverly heard the cou-
ple's song "Hold My Hand"
by Hootie and the Blowfish
- on a continuous iPod loop.
"At the very spot where we
stood to say our vows, Bob-
by had spray-painted the
words, 'Yes, I would do it all
over again.'"
Beverly was completely


overwhelmed with emotion.
After spending the next
hour dancing to the song
and reminiscing about seven
years of wedded bliss, Bev-
erly and Bobby picked up
spray cans and wrote their
farewell to Collaborations.
"Bobby wrote, 'A chapter
closed, another awaits...',"
said Beverly.
The Johnsons still live in
Seagrove Beach. They both
work for Beach Properties of
Florida in Grayton Beach.
Beverly said she still
cannot bear looking at the
empty five-acre spot on CR-
30A that was once the site of
many romantic memories.
This Valentine's Day,
the couple plan to dine at
the Hibiscus restaurant, a
small bed-and-breakfast in
Grayton Beach.
"My husband is a big surf-
er," said Beverly. "I usually
give him a 'pass,' so I, will
take care of things at the of-
fice and let.him surf all day
on Thursday."

BBB ) warns of tax scams


As tax season gets u: n-
derway, scammers are u s-
ing phone calls and e-mai Is
to steal personal and final a-
cial data from victims usir. lg
the IRS name as a lure.

Refunds, audits and th .e
proposed legislation regard 1-
ing rebates are all, topic :s
scammers use to entice vi( -
tims to reveal information: n
the scammers can then us e
to empty existing account s
or steal a person's identity.
One scam involves a phon
call from someone claiming ~
to be an IRS employee whc
tells the victim he is eligible
for a sizable rebate for filing
his taxes early. The caller
then says he needs the vic-


tim's bank account number
to process the direct deposit;
if the target refuses, he is
told he cannot receive the
rebate. At this time, no leg-
islation has been enacted to
provide advance payments
to taxpayers. Additionally,
the IRS does not force tax-
payers to use direct deposit
and does not gather infor-
mation by telephone.

Another phone scam also
involves a caller claiming
to be an IRS employee who
is calling because the IRS
sent a check to the individ-
ual who has not cashed the
check. The scammer claims
they need to verify the indi-
vidual's bank account num-


ber. The IRS does not con-
firm whether a person has
cashed A paper check and
only asks for bank account
information when taxpayers
indicate on their tax return
that they are choosing direct
deposit.
An e-mail scam tells the
recipient he is eligible for
a tax refund and tells the
victim to click on a link to
access a refund claim form,
which asks for personal and
financial information. The
IRS does not send unsolicit-
ed e-mail about tax matters.
Moreover, filing a tax return
is the only way to apply for
a refund.
Because victims of iden-
tity theft often spend hun-


dreds of hours trying to
repair their credit after an
identity thief uses their per-
sonal and financial data, it
is best to take steps to deter
identity thieves.
The IRS suggests typing
the IRS.gov address into an
Internet address window,
rather than clicking on a
link in an e-mail or opening
an attachment.

Additionally, your BBB
recommends never divulg,
ing personal information
over the phone unless you
initiated the call and know
to whom you are speaking.
For additional informa-
tion and advice you can
trust, start with bbb.org.


Rep Theatre to present Out;door Film Series in 2008


The Seaside Repertory
Theatre is expanding its
mission and programming in
2008 to include the presenta-
tion of feature films. Begin-
ning March 16, The Rep will
present a feature film on a
big screen each Sunday eve-
ning on the Seaside Lyceum
green. The films presented
will be critically acclaimed
recent releases, well-known
favorites from years past,
and other limited release
films heretofore unavailable
to panhandle audiences.


Admission is set at only $5,
and preparations are be-
ing made to offer a full bar
along with traditional pop-
corn and candy fare. Tickets
will be sold at the door.
"We want to the setting to
evoke the feel of the drive-
in movies of old," says Rep
Executive Director Craige
Hoover, "but also capture
the communal, shared ex-
perience of movie going that
has brought people indoors
over the years."
The screen that will dis-


play the films is a gigantic
25' x 15' screen, suitable
for audiences up to 1,500,
and the sound and 'projec-
tion quality will both be
top of the line. "Thanks to a
grant from. the Merchants of
Seaside, all the equipment
will be top-notch and brand
new," adds Hoover, "I think
people will be pleasantly
surprised with the high lev-
el of quality." '
SSome of the movies slat-
ed to be shown include last
year's surprise hits "Talk To


.Me, Gone Baby Gone," and
''Sicko." each of which have
I )een awarded much critical
a cclaim, but were released
o. nly in metropolitan areas.
H overr says the criteria for
m tovie selection is an or-
gt inic one, "We will have the
m ovies planned out about a
mI month in advance, but we
ini tend to listen to the au-
dit mce about what should
cot ne next."
I n addition to the Sun-
da3 movies, the Rep has
also taken the reigns of the


summer family series in the
Seaside Amphitheatre. Fri-
days from Memorial Day
to Labor Day, free movies
will be shown on the Rep's
screen free of charge as in
years past. These movies
will include favorites appro-
priate for the whole family.
"I would anticipate a Shrek
sighting at some point in the
summer," Says Hoover.
The Seaside Repertory
Theatre was founded in 2000
with the mission of bringing
high-quality professional


theatre to the panhandle
of Florida, and to promote
the living arts in our area.
The Rep has grown into the
premier professional the-
atre company in Northwest
Florida, providing enter-
tainment and education for
audiences of all ages.

Financial aid for college students available


The Florida Department
of Education (DOE) is work-
ing to break down financial
barriers for Florida students
who want to go to college.
For the third year in a row,
Florida is hosting College
Goal Sunday, a free state-
wide event that provides
expert assistance filling out
the Free Application for Fed-
eral Student Aid (FAFSA), a
form needed to receive fed-
eral and state financial aid
for college tuition.
Florida's College Goal
Sunday 2008 will be held
Sunday Feb. 24 at sites
serving all of Florida's 67
counties. The event will be
hosted locally at the Oka-
loosa-Walton College (OWC)


Niceville campus on Sunday
afternoon, Feb. 24 from 1 to
4 p.m in Building C-2. OWC
financial aid specialists will
be on hand to assist with
financial aid forms and to
answer college financial aid
questions.
"We launched this pro-
gram to help students who
dream of going to college
gain better access to millions
of dollars in financial aid,"
said Commissioner Eric J.
Smith, Florida Department
of Education. "In just one
day, anyone who wants to
learn about the financial aid
process can get one-on-one
help from the .experts."
Eighteen year-old Chey-
enne McGregor spent a few


hours at the College Goal
Sunday event in the Tam-
pa Bay area last year and
walked away with free mon-
ey in her pocket for college.
The aspiring TV personality
won a $500 on-site scholar-
ship and qualified for finan-
cial aid after receiving help
completing her FAFSA. At
the OWC event, more than
$1,000 in scholarships will
be awarded through a draw-
ing from among those who
participate in the event.
"Before I heard about Col-
lege Goal Sunday, I wasn't
sure I could afford college.
The experts there answered
all of my questions and
told me about the aver-
age costs for books and tu-


ition," Che3 renne explained.
"With the h ielp I received, I
got money to go to Florida
A&M Uni versity where
I'm now a f freshman in the
School of Jo irnalism. I was
also excited to win the $500
scholarship Irawing just for
showing up."
Not only will students
have a chance e to win an on-
site scholars lip, they'll also
receive reliable information
about grants, work study
programs an i scholarships
to pay for collie ege.
According to the Florida
Office of Stuc lent Financial
Assistance, college-bound
students who complete the
FAFSA could( qualify for
thousands of dollars in fed-


eral and state need-based
financial aid.
"By getting access to
free or low-interest money,
students can reduce their
exposure to high interest
loans and huge debts after
graduation," said Need Unit
Director Cynthia Williams,
Office of Student Financial
Assistance.
"Many students face bar-
riers that make it difficult
for them to pursue an edu-
cation past high school. We
believe that Florida's Col-
lege Goal Sunday removes
many of these barriers and
that is why we are helping
spread the word," said Brau-
lio Colon, Assistant Director
of ENLACE Florida.


Last year more than
4,600 students and families
participated in College Goal
.Sunday events and many
were from low-income and,
minority households.,
"Money is available for
college, but if you've never
been through the financial
aid process, it can be over-
whelming," said Chancellor
Holcombe. "Florida's Col-
lege Goal Sunday program
is back to give students help
in navigating the process."
