honors


its best
By RON KELLEY
The Walton County
School District (WCSD) hon-
ored two of its best on Feb-
ruary 12 when the Teacher
of the Year and the Educa-
tional Support Professional
of the Year.
The winners were an-
nounced in separate ceremo-
nies. Beverly Wilburn from
Freeport Elementary School
was named the Educational
Support Professional of the
Year at a brief afternoon
ceremony.
Wilburn said she was sur-
prised and "overwhelmed by
the honor. I totally did not
expect this. I was shocked
and honored. I thank the
administrators who allow
me to do what I do every
day. I am so very blessed."
In an evening ceremo-
ny, Carol Langford, also
from Freeport Elementary
School, was named as the
2008 Teacher of the Year.
She said she, too, was over-
whelmed. "I'm just really
in awe right now. The first
person I'm going to call to-
night is my mother who
was unable to make the
trip from Tallahassee. I'd
like to thank all of my peers
who selected me at FES and
th i nk Walton County for
giving me to represent them
at the district level. I'd like
to thank all of my former
-peers in south Florida and
all of my principals, because
without their support and
dedication, I would not be
the teacher I am today."
WCSD Superintendent
Carlene Anderson and Wal-
ton County Education Asso-
ciation leaders Dixie Burge
and Cindy Wade were on
hand, along with two school
board members, Mildred
Wilkerson and Sharon Rob-
erts, past TOY and ESP
winners and well-wishers.

Freeport City Council appoints


Ben Greenslat as new fire chief


By BEN GRAFTON
In a relatively short meet-
ing in city hall on Feb. 12, the
Freeport City Council fol-
lowed the recommendation
of its personnel interview
committee and appointed
Ben Greenslat to the posi-
tion of fire chief. In another
personnel matter, the Coun-
cil approved the employ-
ment of Brendon Day to fill
a maintenance position in
the water department.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger reported that
work has been underway
on supplemental standards
for the 15-year capital im-
provements program, in-
cluding input from the De-
partment of Transportation


(DOT). Henninger intro-
duced Bob Asgard, who com-
mented on the agreement
with DOT. He said that the
city can to get proportional
share'funds from developers
for improving traffic infra-
structure. These funds will
go into dedicated accounts
and could be used with the
consent of both parties city
and DOT but only for road
improvement projects for
U.S. 331 and state highways.
The DOT said the city would
have to identify the specific
projects in its yearly update
of the capital improvements
plan. The DOT also recom-
mended that the city try to
leverage other fund sources
for use on these projects.


DOT standards must be met
throughout on these proj-
ects.
Henninger commented
on the draft of an ordinance
to adopt amendments to the
comprehensive plan and the
future land use map that
would limit development
on a 160-acre parcel locat-
ed on the east side of U.S.
3$1 North by-pass, that is
owned by Freeport Planta-
tion, LLC. The parcel is in-
tended to become the site of
a research and development
park. The draft incorporates
changes to satisfy com-
ments by the Department
of Community Affairs., With
the approval of the Council,
Hehninger presented the


first public reading of the or-
dinance. The second reading
of the ordinance is approved
for presentation on March
11.
Henninger provided cop-
ies of her annual report to
the Council. The report iden-
tifies and summarizes infor-
mation on 13 development
orders that were issued in
2007. These orders include
plans for the construction of
819 residential units. And,
in addition to information
about comprehensive plan
amendments and other ad-
ministrative actions, the
report identifies 13 proper-
ties totaling 332 acres, most

By BRUCE COLLIER
The Paxton Town Coun-
cil held its regular monthly
meeting on Feb. 12 at Pax-
ton's town hall. Prior to the
meeting, council members
attended a two-hour work-
shop presentation by Florida
Rural Water Association's
water circuit rider Coy Don-
aldson, which was also held
in the town hall. Council
members Bobby Kemp, Ann
Sexton, Bill McRae, Jenice
Armstrong and Joe Melton
attended both the workshop
and the meeting. Mayor
Wanda Smith was absent.
The theme of the work-
shop was "Council Manage-
ment Training." Donaldson
kept the emphasis on the
Council's duties in manag-
ing the local sewerage and
water system, but also had
general advice on effective-
ness in serving as Council


members. A power-point
presentation detailed the
mission of a water system
and the responsibilities of
its managers to provide
"safe, dependable, afford-
able drinking water" to its
customers.
Donaldson took the coun-
cil members through a step-
by-step list of concerns,
including water purity reg-
ulations such as the federal
Safe Drinking Water Act, the
"lead and copper rule," arse-
nic content regulations, dis-
infection, and the customer
confidence report (CCR), a
survey to be circulated and
filled-out by water-users.
Also discussed was an
emergency response plan
(ERP). The law now requires
local governments to have
written plans to respond to
six different types of emer-
gencies. Also essential is the


need to have a "complete
and current" system map,
operation and maintenance
manuals, and stand-by gen-
erators.
Donaldson also touched
on general rules of good
stewardship, including as-
set management, civility in
council meetings, the inevi-
tability of change, and the
increasing scarcity of grants,
to finance projects. Councils
seeking loans for projects
from loan agencies must ex-
pect to have to demonstrate
good business practices, said
Donaldson. "The watchword
is 'sustainability,"' he add-
ed.
Regulators also have
their expectations, includ-
ing demonstrated compli-
ance, properly designed and
operated systems, and cer-
tified operators. Donaldson
stressed the importance of


knowing the system, and of
setting and periodically re-
vising written policy, as well
as drafting a simple and
straightforwardly-written
mission statement. "Most
policy is developed out of
situations," said Donaldson,
adding that many problems
can be avoided with good
policy in place.
The workshop conclud-
ed with Donaldson urging
council members to make
5 10 year plans, set long-
range goals, and "dreams,"
to bear in mind the inevi-
table growth of demand for
service, and to search for
alternatives to grants to fi-
nance system expansion.
The Council's monthly
meeting came to order at
7 p.m. City Attorney Lori
Bytell was in attendance.
Following routine matters,
the Council discussed vari-


ous ballfield questions and
concerns with Dixie Youth
League (DYL) President
Christa Mitchell. Council
member Bill McRae indicat-
ed concern over the cost of
lights, among other things.
Mitchell said that she be-
lieved the lights are pulling
too many amps, but that it
should be the county's re-
sponsibility. "I don't know
what's happening inside
the building," she said, re-
garding power use there.
A discussion followed on
details of power use, both
with lights and in the con-
cession stands. "I think we
should share," said McRae,
speaking of the hefty power
bills of the past few months.
Mitchell replied by saying
that DYL is currently "in
the hole," and that county

Late

return of

excess

funds by

WCSO

By ALICIA LEONARD AND
BRUCE COLLIER
In a letter dated Feb 15,
2008 Walton County Clerk
'of Courts Martha Ingle in-
formed Governor Charlie
Crist of $692,510 that the
county had received by check
from the Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) on
Feb.13, 2008. The amount
is reportedly "excess funds,"
money received, but not
spent, in the fiscal year.
Ingle's letter said that
she is required by Florida
Statute 218.36 to report
failure to "remit fiscal year
excess funds in the allotted
time -as required by law."
The county's fiscal year end-
ed Sept. 30, 2007. A period
of 31 days following the end
of the fiscal year is provided
for county officers to make
remission under this stat-
ute. The statute also states
that failure to comply with
this law may subject said
officer in this case Walton
County Sheriff Ralph John-
son to suspension at the
governor's discretion.
Johnson requested and
received a $15 million bud-
.get
for the 2007 fiscal year.
Johnson told the Walton
County Board of County
Commoners (BCC) at the
time that the funds were to
be used for salary and wage
increases, new cars and op-
erating expenses.
Johnson later came back
to the BCC and requested
additional funding for an
unapproved driving track
on land that had been
cleared by the sheriff. John-
son also sought a single con-
tractor without following a
bid process. For items this
large that are not specified
in the budget that cost over
$200,000, the BCC must re-
ceive a request for a capital
project, and the BCC must
approve funding for the
project. However, it was not
included in the 2007 budget

DeFuniak Springs Rotary Club "


hears variety of programs ..


The DeFuniak Springs
Rotary Club .welcomed Ro-
tarians from near and far
throughout the month of
January. In addition to
those visiting from colder
climates, the club welcomed
fellow Rotarians from the
Panhandle. Jon Donwoody
of the Sunrise Club in Tal-
lahassee spoke about the
Rotary's efforts to provide
training and literacy edu-
cation in Jamaica, and Dr.
Scott Smith of Fort Walton
Beach Rotary Club told the
club about the "Love for
Peru Foundation," which is
supported by several Rotary
clubs. Last year, the foun-
dation provided 73 wheel-
chairs and other equipment


that helped over 175 people
in Peru. This year, they as-
sisted with post-earthquake
construction.
On Jan. 23, Walton Coun-
ty Sheriff Ralph Johnson at-
tended the meeting as In-
vestigator Tommie Adkins
of his department spoke to
the club about immigration
and some of 'its darker as-
pects, .such as smuggling,
in which the immigrant is a
willing participant, and traf-
ficking, which is basically a
form of slavery that uses
force, fraud, or coercion.
Adkins explained the
role of the Northwest Flor-
ida Human Trafficking Al-
liance, a collaborative effort
with the three counties to


the west that shares infor-
mation about criminal in-
vestigations, and mentioned
there are currently ten im-
migration bills pending in
the Florida legislature.
George Sutherland, ex-
ecutive director of Habitat
for Humanity, spoke to the
Rotary Club on Feb. 13. The
group built three .homes
in the Mossy Head area in
2007. It will begin construc-
tion on its next house on
March 8. Sutherland is cur-
rently on a quest to raise
$90,000 in 90 days and is
halfway to his goal. The De-
Funiak Springs Rotary Club
donated $200 to Habitat for
Humanity, and many pres-
ent made additional cash


donations.
Rotary is a worldwide or-
ganization of business and
professional leaders that
provides humanitarian ser-
vices and encourages high
ethical standards in all vo-
cations. The Rotary Club
meets each Wednesday at
noon at McLain's Steak
House and welcomes visi-
tors and prospective mem-
bers.

BCC to look at more basic animal shelter


By DOTTY NIST
In the face of a second year
of budget cuts from the state
and reduced ad valorem tax
revenues, Walton County is
taking a new approach with
an animal shelter project
that has been in the plan-
ning and design stages for
approximately five years.
On Feb. 12, County Ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell
recommended that county
commissioners reject all five


bids received for construc-
tion of the facility, which
according to current plans
is to be built on county prop-
erty on Triple G Road near
the county landfill and new
jail.
Approximately $2.9 mil-
lion had been budgeted to
build the county animal
shelter. Bell noted that,
even with the, lowest bid,
the project cost would ex-
ceed that amount, once costs


for water and sewer lines,
tap fees, electrical connec-
tion, fencing and estimated
change orders are accounted
for.
Bell said he had hoped
to keep the project cost at
least within the budgeted
amount, and preferably be-
low.
SDistrict 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows suggested
asking utility providers.for
their help in reducing or


waiving fees for the facility.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander said that
in her opinion, the idea of
spending in excess of $2 mil-
lion for an animal shelter is
"totally out of line."
She suggested removing
the "bells and whistles" from
plans for the project, such
as high-tech glass windows
and built-in heating pads,
and returning to basic shel-
ter plans, similar to some


the county had previously
considered in 2001. She en-
visioned a $1 million or less
price range for the facility.
The commissioners opted
to reject the bids per Bell's
recommendation.
Commander expressed in-
terest in pursuing the new
approach for the facility ex-
peditiously.
Since 2002 stray animals
picked up in Walton Coun-
ty have been sheltered in


Chipley through a contrac-
tual agreement with Aninmal
Control Services of West
Florida.
As the contract has pro-
ceeded, Walton County has
been working toward put-
ting its own facility in place
for sheltering of impounded
animals.
Comander said she con-
siders the situation of send-
ing animals outside the
county "an emergency."

Chautauqua, New York, left, present day.


An armchair visit to


Chautauqua, N.Y.


Visitors to the Chautau-
-qua Winter Assembly in
DeFuniak Springs are in for
a treat this Friday, Feb. 22,
when award-winning tele-
vision producer Alex Alex-
ander will take them on a
visual trip to western New
York State, the home of the
original "Mother Chautau-
qua." Founded in 1874, the
Chautauqua Institution to-
day is both a historic Vic-
torian village situated in a
beautiful lakeside setting,
and a nine-week festival
which has continued every
summer for over 130 years.
"When people find out
that I attend the Assembly
in New York every summer,
they ask me what it's like
up there," says Alexander.
"When I tell them 170,000
people visit the Chautauqua
Institute every summer,
and I describe the hundreds
of gingerbread style cottag-
es, the 5,000 seat outdoor
amphitheater, the lake, ma-
rina, lecture halls, church-


es, parks, historic hotels
and gardens, they. always
express a wish to see it, or
maybe someday make the
trip themselves." Because
of this interest Alexander
has combined over 250 of
her personal photos along
with many practical tips
and personal experiences
into a fun and lively journey
into Chautauqua's past and
present.
Alexander relocated to
the Florida Panhandle al-
most six years ago. Along
with her work as a cable
television producer, she also
works locally as a real es-
tate agent with Naylor Re-
alty, specializing in historic
Chautauqua-era homes in
DeFunisk Springs. She is a
regular attendee and occa-
sional Special Studies course
instructor at the New York
Chautauqua Institution, and
she wishes that more people
from the Florida Panhandle
could experience the New
York Chautauqua. She feel


that their rich blend of arts
programming, recreation-
al, and religious activities
could inspire and refresh lo-
cal efforts to rediscover the
historic Chautauqua ideal
in DeFuniak Springs.
Alexander's lecture will
be presented on Friday, Feb.
22, at 3:15 p.m. in the First
Methodist Church Sanctu-
ary as part of the Chautau-
qua Winter Assembly, Feb-
ruary 21-24, 2008 in historic

Big, blue



and boorish

By RON KELLEY

No resident or visitor to south Walton could have escaped
seeing the large blue signs that now dot the landscape. Ran-
domly ask any five people who live near the signs what they
think of them and four will respond with something I can't
print here.
It's true that they are ugly, over-large and ungainly
eyesores. In fact, in a community that prides itself on its
appearance, where it's nearly impossible to get anyone's
permission to erect an off-premise sign, I was surprised by
the South Walton Tourist Development Council's (SWTDC)
plan to place the big blue signs throughout the area. Per-
sonally, I think they are superfluous, incidental, unneces-
sary, overpriced and grossly unattractive. In fact, there
are many descriptive words that could apply to the signs
- hideous, grotesque, unsightly, loathsome, foul, pointless,
unseemly, ill-proportioned, graceless, odious, useless and
vulgar. I could easily go on, but you get the picture. I vote
we take them all down immediately and agree to never do
that again.
However, I do not think the SWTDC deliberately tried
to hide their consideration of the signs or their intention
to place them throughout south Walton. True, the SWTDC
could have benefitted from an advertised workshop to allow
the public to have some input into the plan and its details,
but their sign plan did not simply spring forth from thin
air. The Herald-Breeze covered the item on more than one
occasion and other area papers may have reported on the
plan, too.
As citizens, we must take the news and information we
are given and carefully consider it, investigate it and act
upon it. However, too often, because we are so caught up
in our own lives, we overlook, forget or simply don't bother
to check on things that can directly affect us until it hap-
pens.
What happens at the local level affects our lives directly
and immediately. State and federal actions can take years
to have a noticeable effect, but what the county commis-
sion and your city governments do impact us right away.
That's why the Herald-Breeze reports on the meetings of
the Walton County Commission, the SWTDC, the Walton
County Planning Commission, the South Walton Mosquito
Control District, the South Walton Fire District, the Free-
port, DeFuniak Springs and Paxton city councils, as well as
the actions of the county clerk, tax collector, sheriff, prop-
erty appraiser and every other individual or group whose
actions and decisions affect your life. We do it without tak-
ing sides or editorializing it. As almost the last independent
newspaper in northern Florida, it's not just our job, it's our
responsibility.
As a citizen, your job is to read it all. Every issue, every
page, every item affects you in some way or another. So,
making use of the information we provide is your job. Too
tired? Too busy? Too bored?
That's okay.
Here's your sign.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
If your holiday shopping this season finds you in a book-
store, take a moment and do me a favor.
Ask for the section on presidential history, and go take
a peek. I'll hazard a guess you'll find literally hundreds
of works of presidential history, from the scholarly tomes
with hundreds of footnotes to the downright sill works on
presidential pets.
Now, take a moment and imagine it's 2033, and you're
looking for a nice downloadable e-book history of the Clin-
ton or Bush presidency.
What you find is truly disappointing: they look and feel
like history, but sit down and read one for a moment, and
the experience is wholly unsatisfying. Where is the back-
ground, the context provided by all of those once-classified
memos detailing the West Wing intrigue that makes his-
tory truly come to life. Instead, we get the learned best
guesses of the nation's finest historians working without
their tools: the primary documents that make history, well,
history.
Sounds like a nightmare, eh? It's reality, for the moment,
and it will rob us of our nation's historical record unless We
The People wake up and do something about it.
A bit of history we do know: In November 2001, just as
the National Archives was preparing to release a small
portion of the records of the Reagan administration, Presi-
dent George W. Bush issued Executive Order 13233. The
order gives former presidents and their assignees the right
to prevent the release of presidential papers -- forever. It
also allows sitting president to block the release of a for-
mer president's records, even after that-former president
has signaled his approval. It requires' th- those who chal-
lenge the action of either a former president or the sitting
president seek redress in court.
Historians, most of Congress and Americans who know
that our history begets our future, howled in protest, and
our elected representatives slowly but surely swung into
action. The House passed The Presidential Records Act
Amendments of 2007 (H.R. 1255/S. 886) by a veto-proof
margin (333-93) with 104 Republicans breaking ranks with
the Administration.
The bill would nullify the Bush executive order and re-
establish procedures to ensure the timely release of presi-
dential records that the Presidential Records Act was de-
signed to ensure. The bill also has broad bipartisan support
in the Senate, and cleared the Senate Homeland Security
and Government Affairs Committee by voice vote earlier
this year.
We were well on our way to reclaiming our history,


Editor,
As you have probably gathered from the emails and let-
ters you have been receiving for the past few weeks, no one
in the Rock Hill Road area wants any pits in our neighbor-
hood. Not the one proposed by Mr. Perry, nor the ones that
are already there. The already existing pits need to be shut
down, cleaned up and reclaimed, but not by hauling trash
into them. They need to be leveled off as best as is pos-
sible, re-vegetated and allowed to naturally blend in with
the' countryside. The mess and destruction that has been
caused by the existing pits must be cleaned up and repaired
to the best possible result. Unfortunately, the damage that
has been done is so bad that it may never be returned to its
original beauty.
The county authorities need to take a good long look at
this debacle and understand that it cannot be allowed to
continue. Mr. Perry's pit is to be located in close proximity
to the mess I am speaking of, which will more than likely
just extend the area of devastation. Pretty soon the beauty
of the area that first attracted the Native American and
later the first white settlers will be only be known from the
stories told about it, and eventually it will be lost forever.
Sound overly dramatic? Think again, it is well on its way
to becoming a reality. There is only so much destruction
Mother Earth can take before it will finally die. There is
so much talk of environmentalism, but very little evidence
of action taken to stave the destruction of environmentally-
sensitive areas, especially if it means slowing down the
dollars and future dollars going into certain pockets. Let's
show the state, even the country that we care about our
heritage and this unique area that we call home.
I moved out here to be away from town, industrial


Editor:
Our country has the habit of allowing a human problem
too much time to develop, so that when a solution is essen-
tial, the problem has become overwhelming. For example, I
hope the armed forces and veteran health groups are gear-
ing up to help the large numbers of returning Middle East
war veterans who need help to return as stable, productive
citizens to have this assistance. We owe this to our troops.
Walton County and other parts of our nation should also
face the problems of an aging society. By checking current
data, it becomes obvious this county already has a large
population aged 65 and over. Most forecasters predict an
increase in older citizens moving to Walton County. This
might be good for our local economy since many seniors
have nice pensions.
What this county and most other counties will not likely
have are adequate/affordable housing facilities available to


when on September 24, 2007, Senator Jim Bunning'(R-Ky.)
objected to floor consideration of H.R. 1255/S. 886 under
unanimous consent, holding up a vote on the bill. Despite
repeated request from a host of historical, news media and
open government organizations, Senator Bunning has re-
fused to state the reasons for his opposition to the bill. Re-
cently, the White House reiterated its threat to veto the bill
should it pass Congress.
For the second time this year, a lone senator has acted
in the least democratic way possible to commit an act of
legislative hostage taking. You may recall Sen. Kyl's secret
hold on meaningful reforms to the federal Freedom of In-
formation Act. Sen. Kyl, to his credit, ultimately chose to
voice his objections and work to address them. No such luck
with Sen. Bunning, who prefers his lawmaking be done in
silence. The World's Greatest Deliberative Body is neither
great nor terribly deliberative in this instance.
When the history this sad spectacle is written, it will note
that the Presidential Records Act gutted by the president
and aided and abetted by the callous silence of Sen. Bun-
ning comes with a rather remarkable history of its own.
It's worth remembering that the Presidential Records Act
of 1978 emerged from the tattered remnants of the Nixon
presidency, in direct reaction to another presidential power
grab. It's a remarkably straightforward piece of legislation:
Under the law, the U.S. government asserts complete "own-
ership, possession, and control" of all Presidential and Vice-
Presidential records. Upon conclusion of the President's
term in office, the National Archivist is required to assume
'custody of the records, and to make them available to the
public :.when permissible under the PRA. Access to the re-
Scords can be denied after the end of the 12-year embargo
only if a former or incumbent president claims an exemp-
tion based on a "constitutionally based" executive privilege
or continuing national security concern.
It's simple, really: the Bush administration wants to
write its own history. Future presidents, Republican or
Democrat, will find that sort of control downright intoxicat-
ing. If this Executive Order is not overturned by Congress
it will allow any president, their heirs, and for the first
time the vice president and heirs, to deny the American
people access to the full historical record of all future ad-
ministrations.
And that is guaranteed to produce some tired pickings at
your local bookstore in the near future.

sounds and smells. I wanted, as did most of my neighbors,
the peace and quiet that the area had before the 'intrusion
of the pits. We want our peaceful neighborhood back. We
want the serenity that we once had. We want the beauty
of the plants and animals that flourished in our unique
environment, before the pits invaded. The wetlands near
the existing pits now look like the aftermath of an atomic
attack. How can anyone, in good conscience, allow this to
continue anywhere? Allowing a borrow pit anywhere near
a wetland should not be tolerated by anyone, especially by
county officials who are charged with the county resident's
best interests.
This area is historically significant. It is the site of the
first settlement in this area, by both Native Americans and
the white settlers who followed. It is in the heart and is the
heart of our county. It is sitting on top of the largest aquifer
in the Panhandle. The aquifer is of significant value to the
entire area, all the way to the beaches. Do you really want
to risk contamination of such an important aquifer, when
water is more and more becoming a rare commodity? Think
carefully, because the decision you make will affect many
more people than the ones in our neighborhood and could
affect the environment even more. It is time for Walton
County to start taking its responsibility in the world com-
munity more seriously. We need tougher laws on the use of
the special exceptions and on borrow pits in general. Please
show us you are taking us seriously and that you care more
about the citizens and the environment than destructive
businesses. That's what borrow pits are, a destructive busi-
ness.

people who need assistance due to the problems of aging.
We should allows the elderly to live in their own homes
as long as possible before using assisted-care facilities, and
most elderly-care providers accept this approach.
But what if the problem is inability to do light house
cleaning. Simple enough, huh? Elder services does not offer
this assistance, nor are there agencies in our county which
provide such services. What should we do?
We might advertise that Walton County is a wonderful
place to retire, especially for those who have money, but
Walton County doesn't' want newcomers who get older and
need public help.
We owe it to our elders to provide basic services to enable
them to live in their own home until totally unable to care
for themselves. Rex Pouncey

Eight more Walton
County citizens have gradu-
ated from the Community'
Emergency Response Team
(C.E.R.T.), a program de-
signed to train area residents
on how to assist neighbors
and emergency personnel
during natural and man-
made disasters. The team
graduated on Tuesday,
Feb. 7, during "Hazardous
Weather Awareness Week"
in Florida, and is now ready
to handle emergencies in
neighborhoods until emer-
gency responders arrive on
the scene of virtually any
disaster.
"These eight citizens are
now trained to help in first
aid, search and rescue, and
a myriad of other emergency
responses during disasters,"
says Jeff McVay, Walton
County's emergency man-
agement coordinator. "We're
real proud that these gradu-
ates can now help protect
their communities through
this very special program."

near its intersection with
Plantation Road. Another is
on the west side of the U.S.

last one is on a site adjacent


to the present'location. The
Council has been asked to
review the options and let
the Post Office know how

THE FLORIDA CHAUTAUQUA ASSEMBLY, INC. sponsored a Hall of Presidents ex-
hibit showcasing booths designed by all of the schools in Walton County. Visitors to the
exhibit voted in order to determine winners of the elementary, middle, and high school cat-
egories. Many guests indicated how difficult it was to vote for just one booth in each category
as there were so many amazing displays. The top votes for the elementary division went to
Freeport Elementary School whose fifth graders created a booth on President Jimmy Cart-
er. At a Walton County School Board meeting, Best of Show was announced with Freeport
Elementary School taking the top honor. Cash rewards were given to the school for both
categories. Congratulations to the fifth-graders and Mrs. Laurie Hudson, their art teacher,
for a great job.

Absolute Dance Center steps I


into DeFuniak Springs l


By BRUCE COLLIER
Gillian Poole owner and
proprietress of Absolute
Dance Center, came to
dance the same way many
little girls probably did she
saw a ballet on television.
In her case, it was "Sleep-
ing Beauty," which the Pan-
ama City-native saw as a
child. Poole went on to join


the Northwest Florida Bal-
let at the age of seven. She
trained there under artistic
director Todd Eric Allen. A
dance scholarship to Oka-
loosa-Walton College (OWC)
followed. Poole trained at
OWC under the late Frances
Herron, graduating in 2003.
Further study followed at
University of West Florida,


ABSOLUTE DANCE CENTER offers variety of dance
and dance-related classes.


where she graduated in
2005 with a degree in in-
terdisciplinary humanities
- art, history, dance, and
the more mundane subjects
of arts business and public
relations. Poole opened Ab-
solute Dance Center in Au-
gust of 2007.
The name states her pur-
pose. "It's everything, all
forms of dancing. It's all
about dance here, you get
it all." Absolute offers pre-
dance, beginning and ad-
vanced ballet, beginning,
intermediate and advanced
jazz, beginning and inter-
mediate .hip-hop, modern
dance, "cardio-dance," body-
sculpting, yoga, Pilates,
and "dance-conditioning."
The two-room studio has a
reception/waiting area, an
enclosed play area for small
children, and a large.dance
room, traditionally fur-
nished with wall mirrors,
ballet bar (or "barre"), and
CD player for accompanying
music.
Students in pre-dance
start off with the basics,
learning ballet terms,
marching around the room


to music, and other knowl-
edge and skills that will
prepare them for higher-
level classes. Poole says that
response has been "pretty
good," and that word-of-
mouth has been helpful in
attracting students. Her
years spent working at oth-
er studios gave her a sense
of what she wanted in her
own place. Among her in-
novations was the playroom
for children, something she
never saw in other studios.
Her own son is the sole occu-
pant of the room on this oc-
casion, clamoring to get out
and run around the dance
studio.
Poole's goal at Absolute
is to develop a company for
training and for recitals,
with a repertoire of perfor-
mance pieces for each level
of dancers. Her students per-
formed at the 2007 Home-
town Christmas celebration
in DeFuniak Springs, and
she is preparing for a recital
this year at Freeport High
School. She also wants to
offer dance-related classes
for people with physical dis-
abilities or limitations.


GILLIAN POOLE takes a position at the barre in the stu-
dio of Absolute Dance.Center in DeFuniak Springs.


Music for classes is pro-
vided by a CD player. Poole
notes that her choice 'of hip-
hop music is kid-friendly.
"It's not gangsta rap," she
says.
Though her students are
mainly young people, Poole
numbers a few grown-ups
among her "loyal followers,"
including some that take
private ballet lessons. "Once
you become a performer,


you're always a performer.
This is something you can
do your whole life." Poole
lives up to this credo herself.
She will be seen in April at
OWC's Dance Facets recital
and fundraiser.

Absolute Dance Center is
located at 257 U.S. 90 East
in DeFuniak Springs. For
information on classes and
hours, call 951-2020.

support is no longer forth-
coming for this year. McRae
said, "We're going the same
way, it's just how to get
there."
The Council and Mitchell
then discussed some pos-
sible cost-cutting measures.
Bytell asked whether Gulf
Power had been asked to
make an energy assessment
to determine whether power
is being used efficiently, and
to identify possible power
drains. Council member
Bobby Kemp suggested
postponing any further dis-
cussion pending an energy
assessment, and that the
Council will make the nec-
essary arrangements with
Gulf Power.
The next item was a
proposal for maintenance
service of the town's water
tanks (the existing tank and
one under construction) by
U.S. Tank. "I gather you're
not getting good service,"
said a U.S. Tank represen-
tative, who had furnished
the Council with a draft of
a service contract. Among
other things, he said, the
tank needspainting. Bytell
said she must review the
town's existing tank service
contract, as well as the pro-
posed agreement, before ad-
vising the Council. The mat-
ter was tabled pending her
review.
The Couricil then took
up the issue of renewal of
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO) substation
lease. A copy of the lease

One of the exhibits in this
week's Chautauqua Assem-
bly is the art show coordi-
nated by Paulette Morrison.
The work of over 30 artists
will be exhibited at the De-
Funiak Springs Community
Center through Saturday.
Morrison, who spent 35
years teaching art to high
schoolers, opened her Gal-
lery 331 just over a year ago.
"It is exciting that we have
a gallery here," she said.
"A lot of our local artists
are in it, as well as artists
from Birmingham, Atlanta,
and all over the Panhandle."
The gallery, located on U.S.
331 just south of DeFuniak
Springs, is open Friday
through Sunday.

agreement was furnished to
the Council. The five-year
lease apparently expired
Feb. 5, 2008. The property
leased covers five acres,
which WCSO leases for a
total fee of $50, payable in
$10 installments each year
of the agreement.
It was. generally agreed
that the Council wants to
keep the WCSO substation
in Paxton, but possibly with
fewer than five acres leased.
Council member Ann Sexton
proposed a swap, with the
town offices relocating at the
existing substation property
and WCSO occupying the
current town hall building.
Discussion followed, with
McRae advising a "good,
hard look" before making
any decisions. Bytell told
the Council she would re-
view the renewal lease and
contact the Council with her
concerns, particularly re-
garding the five-acre provi-
sion. No further action was
taken.
The Council next voted to
accept one of three quotes to
supply air conditioning to
the town hall. Gemaire Dis-
tributors was the winning
bid, at $2,352.19.
McRae then brought up
the question of listing the
town's airport for commer-
cial leasing, a matter that
has been discussed peri-
odically last year. "We need
some money," said McRae,
adding, "We need to get it
out there." Bytell agreed to
prepare a commercial lease,


with a provision giving the
town the right of approval
of sub-lessors. The Council
voted to proceed with the
lease and listing.
In old business, McRae
said he did not think batting
cages for the ballfield were
going to be in place this sea-
son. In department reports,
Council member Joe Melton
suggested that the Council
put some thought into set-
ting a maximum amount on
water bill waivers. Kemp
expressed his support of
waivers, noting the number
of low-income water users in
the area for whom every dol-
lar counts heavily. Melton
responded, "I'm not saying
demolish [the waiver policy],
just put a cap on it." McRae
suggested granting waivers
only when the amount is at
least twice that of the aver-
age bill. The Council took no
action, but all agreed to con-
sider the matter further.
McRae asked the Coun-
cil to consider purchasing
a "pole barn" for storage of
town vehicles. Options and
prices were discussed, but
no action taken at this time.
Finally, Sexton said that
the Paxton school wants to
holds its prom at the town
agricultural building, and
Sexton wondered whether
the Council would waive the
use fee. The Council unani-
mously voted to waive the
fee for the school.

The meeting adjourned at
8:02 p.m.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2008


The Athens of the South


by REID TUCKER
DeFuniak Herald editor/
publisher Larkin Cleveland
said in 1919, one year be-
fore the discontinuation of
the Florida Chautauqua,
that "The Assembly is ev-
erything to DeFuniak." And
it was, year in and year out,
for sometimes as many as
four months at a time. It
was the time that the entire
community eagerly awaited
out of the long year. The
Chautauqua Assembly was
a chance for learning and
culture and entertainment
and there were few who did
not support it.
Cleveland said in editori-
als of the time period that
the Assembly "clearly estab-
lishes the right of DeFuniak
to be known as the Athens
of the South," and indeed,
the Chautauqua did bring
culture and education to an
area where those less fortu-
nate might be denied an op-
purtunity for learning. Like
the Athens of eons past, the
Chautauqua was based on a
very democratic idea: a pop-
ulation is better prepared to
make decisions when they
know the facts and how to
interpret them.
For all the pride rightly
felt by citizens of DeFuniak
as the home of the Florida
Chautauqua Winter Assem-
bly, one must consider the
facts the original Chau-
tauqua movement spawned
numerous semi-official and
unofficial "Chautauqias"
that permeated throughout.
the United States. Like the
New Orleans celebration of
Mardi Gras which is now
celebrated in various cities
throughout the South it
was common to have sever-
al "Chautauqua Assembly"
gatherings within a single
state. The Florida Chau-
tauqua was one of the few
officially-recognized assem-
blies.
The actual history of the
Florida Chatuaqua began in
1884 at the Athenaeum Ho-
tel at the New York Chau-
tauqua Assembly in Chau-
tauqua, New York,' 'an~ a'
visit to DeFuniak Springs
by Dr. A. H. Gillete and com-
pany of the New York Chau-
tauqua. The group's original
destination was Jackson-
ville, as that city was ini-
tially considered for the site
of the Florida assembly.
As history would have it,
Colonel W.D. Chipley and
a citizen's committee from
Lake DeFuniak made the
trip to Jacksonville them-
selves and persuaded Gil-
lette to return with them to


DeFuniak Springs. Gillette
was impressed with Chip-
ley's proposition: to situate
the Chautauqua Winter
Assembly on the shores of
DeFuniak's circular lake.
Later that August, Chipley
and other early DeFuniak
residents attended the New
York Chautauqua and met
with Chautauqua founder
Dr. John H. Vincent.
According to Dean De-
bolt, university librarian of
the University of West Flor-
ida, Vincent "drew a circle
around the lake and indi-
cated that the Chautauqua
grounds should be every-
thing within the circle." The
rest, as they say, is history.
Between August of 1884
and February of 1885, two
separate committees worked
to prepare for the first annual
Florida Chautauqua Winter
Assembly one in DeFuniak
set to work constructing the
Assembly grounds and the
first auditorium (called the
Tabernacle), and completed
work on the Hotel Chau-
tauqua, which would house
guest speakers at Assembly
time.
The other committee op-
erated in Cincinnati, Ohio,
and planned the schedule
of events, as well as book-
ing speakers and planning
the various classes and ses-
sions.
The first Florida Chau-
tauqua Winter Assembly
met in February 1885. Ac-
cording to Debolt, this first
Assembly set the tone for
all following Chautauqua
gatherings. Those first at-
tendees purchased lots, and
constructed "temporary Vic-
torian cottages," which to-
day dominate DeFuniak's
historic Circle Drive. These
attendees also established
the precedent of encourag-
ing the development of the
local economy by establish-
ing new businesses along
Baldwin Avenue, a practice
that Debolt said was instru-
mental in making DeFuniak
into perhaps the most eco-
nomically and developmen-
tally advanced town in Flor-
ida during the late 1900s.
Each year, the Chautauqua
Assembly grew larger, of-
fered more prolific speak-
ers and greater educational
services. Debolt said "The
Chautauqua put DeFuniak
on the map."
Before the Chautauqua
could ever get off the ground,
though, it needed a place to
call home. Thus came the
inspiration for the Hall of
Brotherhood.
Chautauqua founding


father Wallace Bruce said,
"Beside the waters of our
beautiful lake, illumined by
the rich glow of a western
Florida sunset, we are as-
sembled, representatives of
every state in the Union, to
lay the cornerstone of a Hall
of Brotherhood, suggesting
in architectural design and
grace and beauty of the na-
tional capitol, and affording
a much-needed shelter for
schools in many branches of
science and literature con-
nected with our Chautau-
qua development "
The zealous fervor with
which those early Chautau-
quans constructed the Hall
was built into each compo-
nent of its construction the
dome was dedicated to the
soldiers and sailors of the
United States military, the
columns of the first floor
represented the world's
lawmakers, while those on
the second floor stood for
American statesmen, mili-
tary heroes, and academic
and religious leaders, and
the columns of the build-
ing's exterior represented
the presidents of the United
States.
At the Hall's dedication
ceremony, U.S. Army Gen-
eral John B. Gordon said,
"Every beam and timber,
each brick and stone that
shall complete its structure,
from this supporting corner-
stone now laid to its finished
turret, will speak to coming
generations of the sentiment
which suggested it."
Though Hurricane Elo-
ise's 1975 rampage de-
stroyed all but the front
lobby, from the the time the
Hall was completed in 1909,
just in time for the 1910 as-
sembly, until 1929, when
the Florida Chautauqua was
abandoned, the Hall ,still
embodied everything "Gen-
eral Gordon said at its dedi-
cation: "American brother-
hood, a reunited country, on
which depends not only the
life and perpetuity of the
Republic, but the welfarer of
universal humawi aere, the
glorious realities which this
hall is to represent."
By 1910, the Assembly
had extended to February,
March, and April. It brought
thousands of visitors to De-
Funiak each year from all
over the country. The "Com-
munity Events" section of
the Herald in those times
were filled with notices like
"Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Jack-
son of Boise, Idaho, visited
friends in town for three
weeks for the Chautauqua."

THIS PROGRAM, showing the Hotel Chautauqua (where Gulf Power now stands) of-
fered the list of lectures, concerts and performances for the 1893 Chautauqua Assembly,
noting that it was the 10th annual session.


expanded its own interna-
tionally-known education
program, but also resulted
in the introduction of three
major centers of higher edu-
cation: first, Florida's first
teacher's college (State Nor-
mal College), which lasted
18 years, from 1887 to 1905.
This was followed by the
Palmer Presbyterian Col-
lege and finally, the Thomas
Agricultural and Industrial
School, a vocational col-
lege. Of the Chautauqua's
impact on the educational
landscape of the region, De-
bolt said, "I don't know of
any other Florida town that
was so strategically the edu-
cational heart of the Deep
South before the first World
War."
The actual news articles
of the time period are no
less memorable than the
events of those early Chau-
tauquas themselves. All
were ornately written in the
style typical of the times.
A favorite phrase found in
these articles was the pere-
nial "this year's Assembly
was the best ever present-
ed here." The only conclu-
sion is that this was true,
as through the years of its
activity, the Chautauqua's
roster of speakers grew per
annum, thanks in large part
to the ever-busy scheduling
center in Cincinnati.
Over the years, several
recurring figures appeared
at the Assembly. Among the
most prominent was Byron
W. King, a famous orator
from Chicago. King attend-
ed every Chautauqua from
at least 1910 until 1920, and
in 1913, introduced what
would come to be a lasting
establishment in DeFuniak
Springs, indeed one that
would outlast the Chautau-
qua Assembly itself: The
School of Oratory, better
known as the Chautauqua
Theatre. At the time of its
inception, Dr. King's School
of Oratory put on plays by
William Shakespeare, in-
cluding "Othello," "The Mer-
chant of Venice," 'Macbeth,"
"Julius Caesar," and several
others. Herald editor Lar-
kin Cleveland said of the
performances of King and
his students at the School of
Oratory, "they do it with the
ease and skill of real profes-
sionals." Dr. King also gave
many lectures at the assem-
blies he attended, ranging
from general education, to
subjects of social/economic
reform, regular stints as
the speaker at the perennial
"Bible Hour," and lessons on
works of literature.
Other performance
troupes, including The Ly-
ceum Players, performed
plays such as "The Test,"
and "David Garrick," during
the 1917 season.
The Chautauqua also
featured numerous speak-
ers of other types. Dr. Car-
olyn Geisel was one such
guest speaker, though un-
like King, she dealt mainly
with practical or social is-
sues in her lectures, one of
the most famous being her
School of Domestic Science
that she taught each morn-
ing for a week each year. In
1916 she gave, according to
observers, a "fanatical" lec-
ture on disease. Geisel said
in an interview with the
Herald that she knew that
"a large percentage of the
human family will not clean
up unless scared into it."
One speaker, Gertrude Val-
demar also spoke on issues
of social importance, with
her lectures on "Progres-
siveism" and "Child Labor"
at the 1914 Chautauqua.
Also in 1914, Colonel
George Bain spoke on 1912's
Titanic disaster, and new-
comer Dr. Sue Stuart, of
Mississippi, delivered a lec-
ture on child psychology.
Three-time presidential
hopeful and one-time Sec-


retary of State William Jen-
nings Bryant, who toured
the Chautauqua circuit
.from 1900 to 1912, even
while serving as Secretary of
State, also spoke in the Hall
of Brotherhood on a variety
of religious topics, because
he felt that his fervor for
politics had begun to replace
his zeal for his Christian be-
liefs. His most popular and
favorite presentation, "The

DR.A. H. CILLET.
It is with utmost sorrow we announce that
Dr. (Gillot, soon aIfter completing our program
for the coming session, passed from labor, to
rest and roewrd, at De Fiulnk January 1, 1N)3.

A. H. GILLET, superintendent for the Chautauqua Win-
ter Assembly, was largely responsible for establishing the
event in DeFuniak Springs, which played a major role in
the development of the town. This notice made mention that
Gillet had died that year.


Prince of Peace," asserted
that a Christian education
was essential to any demo-
cratic and peaceful society,
religion being the axis of all
common morality.
The Chautauqua also
provided a forum for patri-
otic speaking that was "up-
lifting," as Larkin Cleveland
said on many occasions in the
Herald columns of the day.
At 1913's Assembly, Union
Army veteran Henry P. Lar-
son presented DeFuniak's
Confederate veterans with
what Cleveland called a
"magnificent bouquet,"
and delivered this heart-
felt dedication: "I fought
you without your consent,
and now I love you without
asking your consent." Two
years later, Richard Pear-
son Hobson, veteran of the
Confederate Ironclad battle-
ship Merrimac, spoke of his
wartime experiences at
the cost of $200 per lecture.
Indeed, all throughout the
years leading up' to WWI,
the Herald and the Assem-
bly were surprisingly silent
on the the topic, but once
President Woodrow Wilson
was committed to the con-
flict, seldom did a Chautau-
qua' evening pass without
hearing an essayist espouse
the "American Genius," or
suffer for lack of intensely
patriotic songs.
For all its noble cultural
and educational intents, the
Chautauqua was a major
entertainment venue: stage
plays, numerous orchestras,
quartets, soloists, comedic
acts, jugglers, mimes, and
magicians, all took part in
assemblies throughout its
timeline. Quartets came
from around the country,
and even from Canada. The
Toronto Male Quartet per-
formed at the 1910 Chautau-
qua&. In 1913, "Germaine," a
magician, was brought in for
an assembly to bolster slow
ticket sales figures from the
previous year. "An Evening
of Songs, Sketches and Sto-
ries" was presented by El-
more Lucey in 1913 went
on to become a favorite part
of Chautauquas to follow.
Early issues of the Herald
declared, "The citizens of
DeFuniak Springs wait for
this time of year, and miss,
it sorely when it is gone."
Equally entertaining, but
of greater historical signifi-
cance, were the motion pic-
tures shown at early assem-
blies.
Early filmed versions of
Shakespeare's "Richard III"
were shown, as well as other
plays-on-film, and a surpris-
ing number of film rolls were
shown of children playing
with puppies. Other films of
note were "The Life of Our
Savior," which was shown
in color through a time-con-
suming and expensive tech-
nique wherein technicians
would have to color-tint
each frame by hand.
Perhaps most shocking,
certainly at the time, was
the inclusion of war films,


and not of the dramaticized
variety. In 1918, during the
throes of World War I, a film
called "The Zeppelin's Last
Raid" was shown, along with
actual combat footage of
the Austrian, Serbian, and
Russian armies, to packed
Chautauqua meetings, none
of which contained any cen-
sorship except for the consti-
tutions of the viewers. One
of the first million-dollar
motion picture productions,
"Civilization?" was a graph-
ic portrayal of history and
war and drew record-setting
crowds. There was no docu-
mented public outcry over
the showing of these films,
despite their graphic imag-
ery.
The motion picture that
garnered the most attention
was part of a popular lecture
on the Chautauqua circuit
titled o-'Creation-Historical,
Scientific, Biblical" and in-
cluded a final lecture: "Ar-
mageddon." The lecture se-
ries ran for one entire week
during the Chautauqua As-
sembly and was, according
to the Herald, "an education
in itself." The series had
toured Europe and much of
this country, garnering posi-,
tive reviews everywhere it
went. The lecture was con-
ducted by Prof. Charles T.
Russell. No admission was,
collected.
In spite of the numerous
successes achieved by the'
assembly's operation, in-,
cluding the all-time record;
for attendance up to that
point, in 1916, things ran
into a bit a snag.
A lengthy story ran in
the Herald of the day re-,
garding a decision made by,
various DeFuniak business-
men, who had signed a sort
of pact which stipulated-
that ticket sales for the As-
sembly should be at least
$1,000 annually. That year,
the cosigned businessmen
paid just short of $600. This
, began a troubling trend.
In 1914, for example, total
ticket sales accounted for
more than $2,830, and 292
of which were $5 season
tickets. Even this, though,
was a downturn from the
previous season: in 1913, a
full 100 more season tick-
ets were purchased. This
forced the businessmen of
DeFuniak to pay $1,100 to;
match the sales from 1913 in,
1914, with the Chautauqua,
Assembly president himself
paying a sum of $1,000.
Despite the attempts of,
Larkin Cleveland and other
prominent members of the
community to secure bigger
names for the lecture hall,:
including former-president.
Theodore Roosevelt (who
never officially attended),:
it was not to be and it ap-,
peared as though the As-,
sembly might bankrupt,
the institution it was built,
around.

lend helping hand


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2008
;1


(Part two of a Herald series
in recognition of Black His-
tory Month)
By CHRIS MANSON
The Milton Memorial
Birthing Center in Flowers-
view started with one room
in 1976. It was here that
Gladys Milton delivered
over 2,000 babies. Today,
daughter Maria continues
the work her mother start-
ed.
"In the '80s, my mother
delivered a baby for a wom-
an whose husband was a
contractor," said Maria. At
the time, Gladys was charg-
ing $400 for a delivery. "He
wanted to give her more,
but she wouldn't take it. He
said, 'Since you won't take
the money, I'll build you a
waiting room."'
Gladys was first licensed
as a midwife in 1959. Her
primary role was taking
care of black women. "In the
days of segregation, a black
woman couldn't go to the
hospital unless there were
complications," said Maria.
"My mother was recruit-
ed so black women would
have someone to take care
of them." Gladys attended
to all the black women in
Walton County, as well as
many in Okaloosa, Holm-
es, Covington, and Geneva
counties, the last two in Ala-
bama.
. For about 17 years,
Gladys traveled to women's
homes. But as she got older
- and busier the road start-
ed to take its toll. When two
of the Milton children were
killed in a car accident, fa-
ther Huey suggest they use
the insurance money to open
a birthing center.
"He said, 'We're not going
to profit from our children's
death. We're going to use
this to help people,"' said
Maria.-
Gladys delivered most


babies without complica-
tions, which led to national
recognition. "The national
midwives group wanted to
preserve the history and
started documenting the
thousands of births," said
Maria. "She was invited to
conventions and honored."
When Gladys started out,
she had a good relation-
ship with the state health
department. But, according
to Maria, an attitude start-
ed forming "that midwives
didn't know what they were
doing." In 1986, the same
department suspended
Gladys' license. The story of
Gladys' battle is document-
ed in the book she co-wrote
with Wendy Bovard, "Why
Not Me?"
The birthing center con-
tinued to operate, thanks
to Maria and her brother
Tariq, a physician. Maria
started working with her
mother in 1984 and, in 1990,
was licensed and became the
center's lead midwife.
The state did not succeed
in shutting down Gladys'
career, but Maria said her
mother took things person-
ally. Gladys suffered a heart
- attack shortly after her le-
gal travails, but never com-
pletely stopped working.
Three days before her
death on June 17, 1999,
Gladys assisted her daugh-
ter during a birth.
"When my mother died,
there were people who
didn't know about me and
assumed the birthing center
had closed," said Maria. "The
health department, who
knew better, were telling
people that. Some of them
were saying things like,
'Those people don't know
what they're doing.' After a
while, I filed a discrimina-
tion complaint. They started
outright blackballing .me."
The demand for midwives


has diminished in recent
years. Maria said she goes
for months without a deliv-
ery and cannot afford to ad-
vertise.
"When epidural anesthe-
sia first started being used,
it was during a nursing
shortage," said Maria. "Now,
it's gotten so commonplace
people think that if you're
not doing it, you're not being
safe. If people would come to
a midwife, they would see it
doesn't take, all of that to
have a baby. The care is in-
dividualized and more fami-
ly-friendly."
Maria said that since
1980, all midwives practic-
ing in the state have had to
undergo extensive training.
"In Florida, they are so well-
trained that other states
use their curriculum as a
model," she said.
"Believe me,, the state
used to come in here with a
fine-tooth comb," said Ma-
ria, referring to the center's
annual inspections. The cen-
ter is licensed annually, and
Maria renews her midwifery
license every two years.
Since 1984, Maria has
delivered roughly 300 ba-
bies. "My mother used to
say that what's important
when you're dead and gone
is what you did when you
were alive," she said. "The
greatest consolation is when
people come to me and say, 'I
didn't have a dime, and your
mother took care of me and
treated me like I was some-
one.' It does make a differ-
ence when someone reaches
out to you and lends a help-
ing hand."
Maria added, "As long
as I am providing a needed
service from the heart, I will
continue doing this. When-
ever it gets to be a business
or just a dollar sign to me,
Sthat's when I'll know it's
time to stop."

land wrote in his editorial
that "DeFuniak has fallen
on hard times." However,
he promised the readers,
as the Assembly was soon
approaching, that "even if
money must be borrowed,
the Assembly will contin-
ue as it has for the last 30
years."
It did continue for the
next 14 years.
Under the new manage-
ment of Malcolm Bruce,
relative of founder Wal-
lace Bruce, in 1917, the
Chautauqua secured many
"high-priced attractions,"
including a dissolving light
apparatus and a stereopti-
cal images of the sun and
planets (taken from some of
the largest telescopes in the
world) among other scientif-
ic novelties, further alleviat-
ing the recent downturn in
ticket sales.
On the night of March 7,
1917, with the United States
on the brink of war with Ger-
many, Bruce led the crowd
in the singing of patriotic
,songs as assemblies of the
past had done. Dr. King led
the crowd in prayer. It was,
by all accounts in the next
day's edition of the Herald,
"a very emotional evening."
War was shortly thereaf-
ter declared, and the United
States entered World War
I.
In 1918, the usual pro-
gram of 6-8 weeks was
dropped in favor of a shorter
program, this one lasted
only three weeks of the
year. However, the program
itself, rather than suffering
from cuts in content, was
more condensed, with all of
the usual speakers and per-
formers in attendance.
A strange happening in
1918 could best be described
as an absence of media pres-
ence. In prior years, the
Chautauqua would be men-
tioned not only during the
weeks the Assembly was go-
ing on, but also for several
weeks before and after, to


FROM PAGE 11-A

say nothing of the number
of articles written about it
from different perspectives
within one issue of the pa-
per. In 1918, it was scarcely
mentioned during the three
weeks it ran. However, the
Herald writers did not fail
to mention that this partic-
ular year's Chautauqua was
"sub-par," and "one of the
worst-received yet."
For 1920, the majority of
the lecturers were dropped,
with only a few stalwarts,
King, Geisel, and the Chau-
tauqua Assembly's own
founding.fathers, returning.
The decision was made to
include more entertainment
venues with the idea of in-
creasing sales. According to
Cleveland, "it was thought
that the lectures would only
appeal to 'certain' people."
Along with these 'decisions,
the prices of tickets were
dropped, with season ticket
prices being cut in half, from
their customary price of $5
to $2.50 per person, and in-
dividual admissions were
charged for the concerts.
For 1920, the program was
scheduled to run for only
four weeks; the day-trip
crowds from Bonifay, Crest-
view, and Pensacola stopped
coming en masse due to the
.closing of several of the
train stations that provided
excursions for the duration
of the Assembly. That same
year, Cleveland wrote in an
editorial that "for '21 (the
Chautauqua will hopefully)
return to 'the glory days'
before the war," when big-
ger acts can be brought back
and the railway excursions
could be guaranteed. These
things never materialized.
The majority of the pub-
lic's concern revolved around
the new, mechanized hor-
rors of the war in Europe
and shifted away from the
educational program inher-
ent in the past Chautauqua
meetings.
Dean DeBolt said of this
time period, "the town forgot


its history." DeBolt contends
that during the '20s, the
worsening economic state of
the country that eventually
led to the Great Depression
only made things harder for
the Assembly and by the
time the Depression actual-
ly arrived, the Chautauqua
Assembly was no more, in
keeping with a similar dis-
solution of the nationwide
Chautauqua movement.
Throughout the '30s and
'40s, the now-empty Hall of
Brotherhood was remodeled
into a city auditorium, where
it hosted the USO, square
dances, the Grand 01' Opry,
basketball games, concerts,
and on occasion, wrestling
matches. The building was
not entirely devoid of the
original spirt of the Chau-
tauqua, as all throughout
the '40s it hosted the West
Florida Musical Festival,
where regional bands would
congregate in DeFuniak
Springs for heated competi-
tion.
During the 1950s, the
Hall was used in much the
same way as it was in the
previous decades, with the
inclusion of several special
events, among them U.S.
Navy Band performances
and the Ford Farming Festi-
val. Regardless, these events
bore little resemblance to
the more auspicious assem-
blies of years past.
By the 1960s, Walton
High School had built its
own gymnasium, where it
still stands today in what is
now the campus of Walton
Middle School. After this
point in time, the Hall was
seldom used, and quickly
fell into disrepair and was
eventually closed.
In 1975, Hurricane Elo-
ise destroyed the huge
auditorium of the Hall of
Brotherhood, leaving only
the front lobby. The decision
was made by the DeFuniak
Springs City Council not
to rebuild the auditorium,
and so the Hall sits today,
a mere shell of its former
grandeur. Although it was
reopened, little was done in-


volving the historic site for
nearly a quarter century,
until the mid 1990s, when
the lobby was restored and
the Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce estab-
lished its headquarters in
the building. In 2007, major
repair and restoration work
was done on the stately old
building by the city. This
was marred only by the
decision of the DeFuniak
Springs City Council to
make significant changes to
the appearance of the build-
ing by using large copper
pipes on the front facade
instead of returning to the
smaller white rain gutters
and 'downspouts. Despite
appeals by state historical
preservation officials, the
Walton County Heritage As-
sociation and the DeFuniak
Springs Business and Pro-
fessional Association and
private citizens to restore
the building's appearance
to the pre-2007 style, the
Council and city administra-
tion has, thus far, remained
adamant in its refusal to
correct the gaff.
In 1996, helmed by the
newly-formed Florida Chau-
tauqua Center, Inc. (FCC) a
new Chautauqua Assembly
was presented by a group of
local residents, led by F. Di-
ane Pickett. This Assembly,
though lasting only a few
days instead of weeks, bore
a closer resemblance to the
lecture and entertainment
venues of the past.
In 2008, for the first time
ever, two separate and dis-
tinct Chautauqua events
are taking place.
The first Assembly, which
took place earlier this month
and is the same one revived
in '96, was well-recieved.
The other is the product of
the Florida Chautauqua As-
sembly, Inc. (FCA), led by
Ann Robinson.
Only time can tell what
will become of the institu-
tion.
Nevertheless, the legacy
of the Chautauqua, from its
origin in upstate New York,
to its rebirth in a small


northwest Florida county
seat, to its eventual spread
throughout the breadth of
the United States, serve
to demonstrate the over-
whelming power that edu-
cation and community can
have when joined together.
Even its 60-year absence
from DeFuniak Springs did
little to remove the Assem-
bly as an integral part of the
community's consciousness.
The Chautauqua is un-


FUNDS FR
request.
In a document named
"Backup Documentation for
Sheriffs Agenda Item" ob-
tained by the Herald, John-
son requested in Feb. 2008
that he be able to roll over
the funds he had withheld
for budgeted expenditures.
At the time of the request,
he had not yet returned
these funds for 2007. John-
son requested the funds go
toward purchase of a new
911 call system and comple-
tion of the driving track for
a total amount of $740,924.
Subtracting the amount
of the returned funds of
$692,510 from the amount
Johnson requested, and if,
as indicated by Johnson in
the document that "no new
funds" would be needed if
he was allowed to roll over
the funds, there is a deficit
of $48,000 unaccounted for
by the WCSO.
In this document, sent to
the BCC and included in the
commissioners' packets for
their Feb. 12 meeting,
Johnson stated that he
was asking for no new funds
for construction of the track,
but said, "This matter was
discussed and is reflected by
the board minutes. I would
note that no formal vote was
taken, but rather a general
approval was given to me to
move forward with the proj-
ect." The BCC minutes show
that no vote was ever taken
regarding the project or the
unused funds, which means


alienable in the minds of
the citizens of DeFuniak
Springs, as history has dem-
onstrated. It takes only a
look at the names of streets,
buildings, and the fact that
today there are two sepa-
rate groups presenting a
Chautauqua Assembly to
adequately attest its influ-
ence.
Just as Larkin Cleveland
said so many years ago, the
Chautauqua Assembly is
the "spirit of DeFuniak."


OM FRONT
no official approval was giv-
en by the Commissioners.
Johns6n states in the
same document that it was
an "oversight" that he was
not informed he had to bid
out the driving track proj-
ect.
Johnson responded to
the Herald request for com-
ments on these issues. The
Herald met with Johnson
before going to press and,
at Johnson's request, sub-
mitted a list of questions to
his attorney, James Mur-
ray, about the legal status
of projects discussed at the
Feb. 12 BCC meeting. The
one "on the record" comment
about returning the funds
that Johnson gave the Her-
ald without consulting his
attorney was, "These funds
were encumbered funds for
projects that we are in the
process of completing now."
The Herald received two
press releases from John-
son, prepared following con-
sultation with legal counsel.
The first release, in its en-
tirety, reads:
"On February 19, 2008,
the Sheriff became aware
that Martha Ingle, Clerk
of Court for Walton County
had sent a letter to the Gov-
ernoi of the State of Florida
alleging that the Sheriff had
failed to remit funds to the
Board of County Commis-
sioners.
"In the letter, Ms. Ingle

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2008


FUNDSFROM 12-A

cited F.S. 218.36 for the au-
thority to writer such a let-
ter and stated 'it is my duty
as Walton County Clerk of
Court to notify you....'
"F.S. 218.36 states very
plainly that:
'3) the board of county
commissioners may notify
[emphasis in press release]
the Governor of the fail-
ure of any county officer to
comply with the provisions
of this section. Such noti-
fication shall specify the
name of the officer and the
office held by him or her at
the time of such failure and
shall subject such officer to
suspension from office at the
Governor's discretion.'
"The Sheriff has verified
that Ms. Ingle did not re-
ceive a directive from the
Board of County Commis-
sioners to send this letter.
"The reason why no such
authorization was received
by Ms. Ingle from the Board
of County Commissioners
is that the Sheriff has been
working with the Board of
County Commissioners and
the Auditor on this issue.
"In past years, the Sher-
iff has not been required to
remit encumbered or ear-
marked funds back to the
Board of County Commis-
sioners. The Sheriff also
believes that other county-
officers have not remitted
earmarked or encumbered
funds based on the advice of
the Auditor.
"Vendors and business
doing business with the
Sheriffs. Office do not oper-
ate with the county's fiscal
year in mind. They ship
equipment when available
and bill when they believe
they are due payment. Thus
bills that have been incurred
in one fiscal year are often
received in the next fiscal
year. The practice in past
years has been to hold these
earmarked or encumbered
funds back to pay the bill
when they arrive.
"This year for the first
time, the auditor has re-
quested that the Sheriff
remit the encumbered or
earmarked funds and then
move the Board for an
amendment to the current
fiscal year budget.
"The request from the
Auditor and the Board of
County Commissioners to
remit encumbered and ear-
marked funds came after
the statutory time period
had passed. The Sheriff im-
mediately complied and
transferred the funds after
being requested to do so. In
addition, the Sheriff, then
moved for a public hearing
on amending his budget to
include the encumbered and
earmarked funds so that fis-
cal obligations incurred by
the Office of the Sheriff can
be met.
"The Sheriff was not con-
tacted by Ms. Ingle prior to
her writing the letter and
does not know what her mo-
tivation was in writing such
a letter and leaving out all
of the background informa-
tion that should have been
included to provide a clear
picture of exactly what had


occurred." [End of first press
release]
In response to the list
of questions submitted to
Johnson's attorney, the Her-
ald received the following
responses in a second press
release:
"1.The difference between
encumbered funds and mon-
ies not delegated to be paid
out that is left over?
"Contracts and purchases
orders that were entered
into and executed in FY
2006-2007 were not com-
pleted by the end of FY 2007.
The funds that ha.d been
budgeted to meet these bills
and obligations were held
back awaiting the receipt of
equipment associated with
the purchase orders or the
bills for, the completion of
the purchase orders.
"In past fiscal years, the
auditor has approved this
practice since the funds had
already been encumbered
and were simply being held
to meet financial obligations
incurred by the agency but
not paid for because either
the equipment or the bills
had not been received.
"This year, the auditor
has questioned the practice
for the first time. The Sher-
iff believes that his agency
is not the only one in Walton
County that has received
the the previous advice from
the auditor, i.e. you can hold
funds to meet financial obli-
gations that were validly in-
curred in the previous fiscal
year.
"2. A quote that the funds
were earmarked or encum-
bered and what they were
encumbered for?
"The following funds were
budgeted and encumbered
in FY 2006-200*7 and had
been approved by the Board
of County Commissioners:
Motorola Corporation
$311,431
First Communications
18,233
Experimental Systems
35,255
Sirchie Fingerprint Lab
14,281
KMS Business Products
15,900
Training facility
345,824
"At the request of the Au-
ditor, for the first time, the
Sheriff transferred the FY
2006-2007 funds back to the
Board of County Commis-
sioners and requested that
these funds be moved to
the FY 2007-2008 budget to
meet financial obligations or
capital improvement proj-
ects.
"3. A quote from Sheriff
Johnson that this is coming
to light for the first time?
"Ii past fiscal years, the
Auditor has not had a prob-
lem with holding encum-
bered funds from one FY
to another for the purpose
of meeting financial obliga-
tions incurred during the
previous fiscal year.
"4. The controversy on
the driving track or training
facility?
"The Sheriffwas unaware
of a 'controversy' concerning
this training facility that
is needed by all emergency
personnel in Walton County,
not just the officers working
for the Sheriffs Office.


"The Sheriff as a result of
budget restraint was able to
realize a $345,824 surplus
in his FY 2006-2007 budget.
Realizing that this train-
ing facility was needed in
Walton County, the Sheriff
approached the county com-
missioners individually and
received their approval to
move ahead with plans pro-
vided he was able to fund it
from his existing budget.i
"The Board of County
Commissioners is reslpon-
sible for all capital improve-
ments and the training
facility falls into that crate-
gory. Because the cost of' the'
project is $200,000 or m.pre,
Florida Statutes require
that the project be sub:mit-
ted for bids. The commission
can do this or ask that the
Sheriff do it.
"The Sheriff has requiest-
ed that the funds earmarked
for the training facility" be
moved to his FY 2007-21008
budget and a public hearing
is scheduled for that action
on February 25, 2008.
"Because there are many
county agencies with an
interest in the training .fa-
cility, the Sheriff has re-
quested that the training'
facility plans and design
be assigned to a committee
already appointed by the
Board of County Commis-
sioners to deal with devilop-
ment of county owned iand
in the area of the Sheriffs
Office. Once a recomme:nda-
tion has been received from
that committee the Sheriff.
will then make a proposal to
the Board of County Com-
missioners and ask for fur-
ther authorization to move
forward." [End of second
press release]
Walton County Finance
Director Bill Imfeld iom-
mented, "In order for funds
to be encumbered they must
be against an authorized
project. I have no kriowl-
edge of this issue having
ever been formally put to
the BCC for budget coiisid-
erations."
A public hearing is sched-
uled for the BCC's next
meeting on Feb. 26 at; the
Walton County Courthouse
to hear public comments on
the project, the funding and
the question of the required
BCC approval.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2008


People


A beautifu[mind




unloc ed


By ALICIA LEONARD
Imagine not being able to
communicate with anyone.
Imagine a small child in a
world that is new and big,
but they can't tell Mom or
Dad how they feel or under-
stand what they are saying.
Every year, millions of chil-
dren can't tell their parents
if they are happy or sad, in
pain or hungry. They are
alone in the battle of au-
tism.
Language comprehension
and the ability to play or in-
teract with one's family are
major milestones when a
family member has been af-
fected with autism. For one
DeFuniak Springs family,
a relatively new center lo-
cated in Destin has been an
answer to their prayers.
Gaines Marshall, son of
Scott and Heather Marshall,
was diagnosed with autism
in March 2007. Heather
talked about some of the
difficulties Gaines faces in
everyday life. "Gaines was
three and a half at the time.
He did not look any differ-
ent than any other kid. You
would never know that any-
thing was different about
him until you tried to have
a conversation with him. He
could not tell you his name,
how old he was, or even an-
swer a yes or no question.
He could not count to three
or tell you any of his colors.
His brain did not process the
way it should, so he was not
picking up the fundamental
skills he needed from his en-
vironment. He didn't know


how to follow directions, he
could not interact with his
peers, he could not potty-
train, or pretend play."
Marshall said that, as a
parent, it was especially try-
ing where discipline came
in. "Since Gaines could not
communicate with us, he
tantrumed a lot. Sometimes
we'd be in a store and he
would be upset and people
would just stare at us. It is
so hard as parents because
you want to discipline your
children, but you don't know
if they understand why they
are getting in trouble," she
said. Gaines also had no
fear of any situation. His
brain did not sense fear or
pain, so Heather and Scott
had to watch him carefully
so he would not wander off
or physically injure himself.
A neurologist that at-
tended to Gaines in 2007
recommended speech, occu-
pational and applied behav-
ior analysis (ABA). The fam-
ily attended speech-therapy
for a year with little or no
results. The family decided
to try the ABA therapy and
the closest place providing
this type of therapy was
Brilliant Minds in Destin.
Brilliant Minds was con-
ceived by Ana Leurinda,
M.D. after Leurindia's
daughter, Nicole, had been
diagnosed with autism. ABA
therapy was non-existent
in the area and Leurinda
had a choice, "I either had
to move. to a big city to get
my daughter the help she
needed or try and bloom

where God had planted us."
She hired a therapist and
began Brilliant Minds out
of her own medical prac-
tice. Leurindia says, "My
daughter is now enrolled in
a mainstream third-grade
class and is performing on
par with her classmates."
Leurinda hopes that other
parents will be able to help
their kids, too. "We have
hopes to build a larger com-
plex which will house phys-
ical, medical and behavioral
therapy in one place so par-
ents won't have to travel to
many different doctors and
incur extra expenses in their
child's treatment," she said.
"We have families that drive
from Alabama for their kids
to be able to take part in
our program. We are in the
trenches here and don't get
to do much fund-raising but
we will need the communi-
ties help to realize the great
strides we could make in ex-
panding our practice."
Leurinda also credits
Clinical Director Gina Bal-
lone, a board-certified be-
havior analyst, with much
of the success that these
families are enjoying with
their children. Ballone says,
"We approach each child dif-
ferently according to their
needs. Children at the same
levels of learning are often
paired together to increase
social abilities for their
first hour of play therapy.
Then they have two hours
of one-on-one therapy with
me or another trained staff
member." Ballone says this


approach works because
they use positive reenforce-
ment. "ABA therapy is the
most empirically validated
treatment for autism," she
said. Ballone says hundreds
of studies have shown the
dramatic improvements for
children with many devel-
opmental disabilities using
ABA therapy.
Despite all of the great

ANA LEURINDA, M.D.,
began Brilliant Minds to
help her daughter who was
diagnosed with Autism.
Leurinda hopes that com-
munity involvement and tax
deductible donations will
allow many more families
with children who have neu-
rodevelopmental disabilities
such as Autism to reap the
benefits of ABA therapy.


CLINICAL DIRECTOR and board-certified behavior analyst Gina M. Ballone (center),
interacts with Gaines and other children in their first hour of play or group therapy. This
therapy helps children with neurodevelopmental disabilities learn to play and increases
social skills along with language skills.

all take an active part in Gaines'ABA therapy.

MIND FROM I

results that ABA therapy is
showing for families, most
insurance providers don't
cover the cost and it's not
utilized in the school system.
Marshall says it's difficult for
her family to take on the ex-
pense and that is one reason
they are sharing their story
with the community. Mar-
shall continues, "Our son is
the only child from DeFuniak
Springs getting the therapy.
If one in 150 children have
autism, statistically, then
we have many more children
that are not getting the help
they need. This one-on-one
therapy is fundamental for
these kids. We, as a com-
munity, need to help the
children that are not get-
ting the proper therapy," she
said. "You can do so many
things to help. First, pray
for change in our school sys-
tem and in our government.
Second, Brilliant Minds is a
non-profit organizations so
you can send donations to
help them build a school so
they can provide therapy to
more children, help families
pay for therapy, and help
provide all the supplies they
need to provide therapy. The
last and most important
thing is help families that
you know that have autistiG
children. Be understanding.
It is so hard as parents to
know something is wrong
with your child and even
harder to be open with oth-
ers about the problem. We
never thought we would be
telling our community about
our son, but God put it on
our hearts to share our story
in order to help others."
Brilliant Minds is a non-
profit group and all dona-
tions are tax deductible. To

minds reach their full poten-
tial.
So how is Gaines' beauti-
ful young mind? According to
his mother; "Brilliant Minds
is the best' blessing be-
sides our children that God
has ever given us. Gaines
is a new child. He has ad-
vanced on so many levels. He


can tell you his name! He
can almost count to twenty.
He ,potty-trained within
two months of attending
Brilliant Minds. Gaines
can hold conversations
with you. He does not tan-
trum anymore because he
understands what is going
on. Over the past year, ev-
ery month, we noticed
changes. He can now play
with his peers and pretend
play. You can hardly even
tell that anything was ever
wrong with Gaines and we
owe all his progress to Bril-
liant Minds."

vides to families in the northwest Florida area.


Asc auntie Emr

Dear Auntie Em,
Maybe you can give me some advice. My whole office is sick. One person gets better
and then another gets sick. I took my flu shot this year but it doesn't seem to help.
Why do I keep getting sick and what's the best way to avoid it?
Thanks,
Feeling Cruddy in Crestview

Dear Cruddy,
Sounds like you are in the same boat as many offices in our area right now. The
"Crud" is upon us and it's hard to shake.
For one thing, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recently announced that
the strain of flu most have this year was not part of their flu shots. Each year, they
have to guess which strain will be most prevalent and this year they didn't include
the strain that most have caught. But that is only half the problem when we spread
germs.
Office phones, door handles, desk and computer keyboards are also known culprits
of crud-spreading. Be aware of shopping cart handles and doors around town, too. A
big can of Lysol or a mix of bleach and water will kill these critters off quick. Hand-
washing is also a good habit to get into everyday. Auntie Em doesn't really care for
the antibacterial craze. Many of the wipes and additives are being researched be-
cause many scientist believe they are encouraging bacterial growth that will one day
be resistant to antibiotics.
Eat well, drink lots of liquids, rest much and, if you are running a fever, stay home,
if possible. Stress leads to a lowered immunity and studies have shown it is more
profitable for a business in the long run to let a sick employee stay home than to come
in the office and infect everyone. If your symptoms continue with fever, contact your
physician and follow their advice. Get better soon and God bless.
Auntie Em
Auntie Em wants to hear from you, too. Send your letters to Auntie Em to dfsher-
ald@gmail.com or to P.O. Box 1546, DeFuniak Springs, F1.32435

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2008 PAGE 5-B

Movie Review




Thrice-told tale: "Definitely, Maybe"


By BRUCE COLLIER
A soon-to-be divorced man lets his young daughter
talk him into telling the story of three women in his life.
All were significant, one is her mother. Adam Brooks'
romantic comedy "Definitely, Maybe" is a kind of cross
between "The 1,001 Arabian Nights" and "Forget
Paris." The movie bogs down in the middle of its near-
two-hour length, as if uncertain of its genre. However,
all things ease into a finish that will please any
connoisseur of chick-flicks, of which this is the genuine
article there's definitely no maybe about that.
Ryan Reynolds plays Will Hayes, an advertising
account executive whom we meet on the day he is to
sign his final divorce decree. Disenchanted with his job
and his personal life, Will picks up his daughter Maya
at school, only to learn that the curriculum now
includes a sex education class. As Maya peppers him
with candid questions' about his romantic past (and
present), Will offers to tell her the story -of his three
most important female relationships. He will change
the names, and Maya can guess which one is. her
mother (Will's impending ex). Intrigued, the little girl
burrows into bed, pulls her princess pillows around her,
and prepares for a one-of-a-kind bedtime story. She
even takes notes.
The interwoven stories are told in flashbacks, with
the occasional freeze-frame as Maya questions and
comments on the'action. As to Mom's identity, we know
no more than Maya, who seizes on every hint and clue,
drawing up a chart to keep things straight.
"Definitely, Maybe" should please 1990s nostalgia
buffs, since it begins with Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign


for the Democratic presidential candidacy, and
continues through. his two terms to the present. Will
starts out as a campaign headquarters gofer in
Manhattan, then graduates into fundraiser and finally,
a consultant with political ambitions of his own. The
three women "Emily," "Summer," and "April" are,
respectively, Will's school sweetheart, an aspiring
journalist, and a campaign headquarters temp with
zero political interests. Each has her own charms, and
ample reasons for Will to settle down with her.
There are also drawbacks. Emily (Elizabeth Banks)
lives back home in Wisconsin, Summer (Rachel Weisz)
is involved with an older man, and April (Isla Fisher) is
itching to. see the world and find her purpose. Will
caroms back and forth among them, building strong
bonds, losing touch, then re-connecting. All the while
we are shown the rising and falling fortunes of
President Clinton, employed as a kind of Iveryman for
the time. It's not a particularly flattering picture of
Clinton, or of his loyalists, whose excuses for his private
behavior with "that woman" (pick a name) increasingly
irritate Will. At one point, disgusted with one of
Clinton's twistier evasions, Will hurls a carton of
Chinese takeout at his TV screen, and lets it hang
there. "I see you've been eating noodles," a visitor
deadpans.
By movie's end, we start to get a clue as to who's
who, and hints of how.Will is going to find happiness -
this is a chick flick, so that's a given. The flip-flops are a
little rapid toward the end, as plqt devices planted in
Sthe beginning bear fruit (or explode). I honestly didn't
know who Will was supposed to be in love with most,


which makes me wonder if the screenwriter had the
same problem making up his mind. Still, it all comes
together, and the "happy ending" Will promises Maya
turns out to be closer than she thinks.
Like 90 percent of the movies coming out of
Hollywood today, the acting is excellent and the casting
apt. Leading man Kevin Kline takes an unglamorous
holiday as a 60-something writer, grayer than I've ever
seen him, full of booze and sardonic regrets. Oscar-
laureate Weisz's Summer exudes a metropolitan
sexuality, while Fisher's April reminded me of a more
grown-up, wholesome Lindsay Lohan, if you can
imagine such a combination. As Emily, Elizabeth Banks
is the original blond Dairy State beauty queen, polite
and incapable of subterfuge. Twelve-year-old Abigail
Breslin, Oscar-nominated for "Little Miss Sunshine,"
has to qualify as the Hardest-Working Kid Actor in
Hollywood in 2007-08. She's cute, but not too cute, with
a sweet and funny kid quality that makes me hope she
grows up somewhere other than L.A.
As Will, Ryan Reynolds inhabits the role and lets the
screenplay take him along with it. The film is well-
served by some good writing. Listening to Bill Clinton
parsing the meaning of the word "is" in one of his press
conferences, Will mutters, "If he has that much trouble
with 'is,' what's he gonna do with the harder words -
like 'truth?"'

"Definitely, Maybe" is probably not going to snatch
any Oscar gold, but it will join the ranks of movies like
"When Harry Met Sally" and "Four Weddings and a
Funeral" as a dependable date-film, and a sure-fire
Valentine's Day video rental.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2008


Taking a good look toward God
By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


It may have been that
Isaac Watts was thinking
of a certain Scripture when
he wrote "O God, our help
in ages past." Maybe that
Scripture was Psalm 121:1:
"I will lift up mine eyes unto
the hills, from which cometh
my help." That psalmist had
discovered that only the
Lord could provide the help,
happiness, health, and hope
necessary to live a victori-
ous life down here.
Look toward God for help
with the burdens of life.
There may come sickness,
sorrow, disappointments
and limitations, yet God is
with us in all these things.
Help is. available even in the
temptations and responsi-
bilities of life.'
Look toward God for the
happiness which life can
bring. The psalmist wrote
Psalm 16:11 about happi-
ness: "Thou wilt show me
the path of life: in Thy pres-
ence is fullness of joy; at


Thy right hand there are
pleasures for evermore."
With the Lord we can find
the abundant life. Really,
Christianity is no prison
house. Some think of Jesus
as a kill-joy, yet that is not
true. He leads us from a self
centered life to unselfish liv-
ing for others and the glory


A Riddle From James
Rev. Dr. G. Charles SAtterwhite. Pastor

I dwell in a hollow, moist and dark,
Hard objects I lie between;
And it's not until this place is opened
That I, might be seen.

Having neither arms nor legs;
I can move, but not "make haste."
I have no mouth of my own,
Yet still, I can taste.

I cannot view my prey:
For I have no eyes to see.
But seldom do I miss my target,
Striking with pinpoint accuracy.

My "fruit" is compared to poison,
and while having potential for good,
It often causes pain and suffering
like a serpent never could.
o' ."" i.Cost"who own me, do not know God,
S B- *Be.omhig obvious as I'm set free.
Yet sadly, at times, I'm loosed for evil,
Though God's child, one might be.

But, the owner who fails to control me,
Is deceived to his, own shame;
Yet, it has been said that by no man
Can I, ever be tamed.

Should you still wonder what I am,
I leave you with this small clue:
If you're able to read this riddle,
You surely own one of me, too...
Read James 1.26 and 3.5-10 for the answer


of the Lord Christ.
Let us look in prayer to
God for the hope we need.
Our faith in the Christ's
provision is not a "perhaps"
kind of hope politically giv-
en. Our hope in Him is a sol-
emn promise. We can have
hope that our sins shall be
forgiven when we trust in
and live for the Christ of
God. It is not based on hu-
man effort or moral excel-
lence. It is based on Christ
who lived for us and died
for every believer. Fellow-
ship follows the believer.
We need fear no evil when
we believe in Him.
STake a good look toward
God in prayer. Now look at
yourself. Do you have faith
in Jesus Christ? Receive
Him today according to your
individual needs and ac-
cording to His purposes of
love for you. You will then
have the hope of a satisfying
life here and one with Him
in the life to come.

WHITE. PASTOR

Walton boys fall to Marianna


By PATRICK CASEY
SThe Walton Braves fell
behind 14-1 on the road in
Marianna in an opening
round Class 3A basketball
playoff game and never re-
covered. Thus, the Bulldogs
ended the Braves' season
for the second year in a row
with a 59-35 victory.
Walton trailed the No.
2-ranked team in Class 3A
38-14 at halftime as the
Braves battled shooting
woes and turnovers through-
out the first half of play.
Walton did a much better
job of defending the athletic
and experienced Bulldogs in


the second half as the teams
scored 21 points apiece in
the final 16 minutes of play.
Both coaches played deep
into their respective bench-
es as the contest went on.
Marianna was led by T.J.
Spencer's 15 points while
Derrian Bell and C.J. Blount
added 11 points apiece.
Marianna (24-3) will travel
to Pensacola Catholic (23-5)
for a second round contest
on Tuesday, February 19.
Walton got 13 points from
junior forward Tarell Bram-
let, who was the only play-
er in double figures for the
Braves.


Game Notes: Jerry Hester
is 99-62 in his six years as
Walton's head coach. Wal-
ton has dropped six straight
games to the Bulldogs over
the last two seasons. Mari-
anna is 16-13 versus Walton
dating back to the 1992-93
season. The Bulldogs have
nine seniors and four juniors
on their squad and won
state boys basketball titles
in 1977 and 1981. Marianna
coach Travis Blanton is in
his eighth season and has
an 11-6 record versus Wal-
ton while at Marianna. Wal-
ton's last win at Marianna
was a 56-54 decision during
the 1999-2000 season. The


loss ended the careers of Jackson, Dylan Laird, Aaron
seven Walton seniors: Larel Timmons, Sydney McGhee,


Ebae Young, Craig Brooks
and Justin Crishon.


Paxton boys defeat Malone 77-56


By PATRICK CASEY
Zack Vickers and Shaq
Jackson scored 18 points
apiece as the Paxton Bobcats
won their first boys basket-
ball playoff game since 1978
with a 77-56 victory over the
Malone Tigers in an opening
round Class A playoff game.
Malone (12-15) stayed
close to the Bobcats by
hitting ten 3-point shots
throughout the contest, but
when the Tigers missed,
Paxton grabbed the re-
bounds as they held a 40-23
edge on the boards.
Paxton (26-2) pulled
away in the fourth quarter


with a 26-15 run to get some
breathing room and earn
their first home playoff win
since 1974.
Michael Peak scored 14
points to lead Malone.
Game Notes: The Pax-
ton boys basketball team is
12-10 in playoff games' in
22 contests. Paxton broke a
four game losing streak in
the state playoffs with the
win. Paxton Head Coach
Jeff Bradley is in his tenth
season leading the Bobcats
and has a record of 191-109.
If Paxton defeats Graceville
in the second round on


Tuesday (details were not
available at press time)
the Bobcats would host the
winner of the FAMU High-
Quincy Carter-Parramore
game on Saturday night at
7 p.m. with a berth to the
boys Class A Final Four on
the line. Paxton's boys were
the last Walton County boys
squad to go, to the Final
Four in 1974, when they lost
to eventual state champion
FAMU 58-43 in the Class A
state semi-final. Paxton has
never faced Graceville or
Quincy Carter-Parramore
in the playoffs but is 0-2 ver-
sus FAMU High.


WALTON COACH JERRY HESTER was denied his 100th win at Walton as the Braves
fell to Marianna 59-35 in a Class 3A playoff game last Tuesday night.

tween the two former series
champions, who were in-
volved in a wreck during tri-
als for the Daytona 500. Af-
ter the incident on the track,
the two continued their
disagreement when Busch
followed Stewart to pit row
and rammed his car.
The argument became
even more heated when the
two went into the NASCAR
officials trailer.


Despite the fact that no
one has admitted that Stew-
art insitigated the feud, or
that he punched Busch dur-
ing a meeting with officials,
as some have reported, an
official said, that Busch's
penalty was inferred due to
the incident that happened
on the track.
No word of the extent of
the probation beyond the six
week probation period.

Paxton girls earn trip to state tourney


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
built- a 27-16 lead over the
FAMU High Baby Rattlers,
then held on in the second
half for a 44-37 victory and
the school's first trip to the
state tournament since
1997.
Maryllyn Gilbert scored
16 points while Erin Walk-
er, Emmalee Infinger and
Vikki Pepper added eight
points apiece, allowing the
Bobcats to win the Region
I final on their home floor.
The Bobcats shot extremely
well in the first half as they
connected on several 3-point
shots to build an 11-point
lead at halftime.
FAMU (19-7), like Ma-
lone, struggled to connect
from the floor against the
Bobcats as shot after shot
clanged off the iron and into
the Bobcats clutches. FAMU


also struggled with turn-
overs and had foul trouble
as Keishara Green spent a
good part of the second half
on the FAMU bench.
Valerie Leland was the
only Rattlers player in dou-
ble figures as she scored 14
points. Her teammates could
not find any rhythm on of-
fense as FAMU could not
make enough shots around
the perimeter to draw Pax-
ton out of their comfort zone
on defense.

Paxton .(25-5) got to the
Region final after defeating
Malone 47-43 in the second
round. Maryllyn Gilbert
scored 18 points and junior
Stevie Davidson made a
pair of crucial free throws as
the Bobcats avenged a loss
to the Tigers in last year's
Region final-.
Paxton started strong at


home as the Bobcats took a
15-8 lead after one quarter
with solid shooting and the
aid of Graceville turnovers.
Malone settled down in
the second period and cut
the halftime deficit to 22-21
as Paxton cooled off from
the floor and the Tigers
started to produce points off
of Paxton ball-handling er-
rors. The Tigers would have
had the lead at the half but
woeful free throw shooting
(3-of-11) kept them from
adding more points to the
scoreboard.
Malone took their first
lead of the game in the third
quarter as they outscored
Paxton 12-8 to take a 33-30
lead to the final eight min-
utes of play. Paxton contin-
ued to struggle with their
shooting from the perimeter
while Graceville was able
.to turn turnovers into just


enough points to scrape out
a lead.
The Tigers began the
fourth quarter by stretch-
ing their lead to 40-32, the
largest they would have on-
the night, only to see Paxton
get within 40-38 with 4:11
remaining.
Malone increased their
advantage to 43-38 with
2:33 left in the game,q but
Paxton fans got behind the
home team during a timeout
and the momentum swung
to the home team.

Senior Maryllyn Gilbert
followed with a pair of bas-
kets to get the Bobcats with-
in 43-42, then Stevie David-
son responded with a basket
and 3-of-4 free throws to put
the game away.
Malone tried to use the
3-point shot to rally, but
could not connect in the fi-


nal 30 seconds as Paxton
put the game away at the
free throw line.
Malone, which had only
two seniors on their team,
got limited action from lead-
ing scorer Mercedes Smith,
who scored six points but
saw only 10-12 minutes of
action on the floor due to a
troublesome leg.
LaTisha Sims scored 16
points for the Tigers, but
7-of-19 free throw shooting
and turnovers doomed Ma-
lone (17-11) in the end.
Game Notes: Paxton has
won 14 straight games. Pax-
ton is 30-11 all-time in state
playoff competition in girls
basketball. Herb Haddock is
in his 11th season as head
coach and has a 228-74 re-
cord while at the school.
Paxton is 4-3 versus Malone
in the state playoffs, includ-
ing a 52-44 win over the Ti-


gers for the Class A champi-
onship in 1997. FAMU High
is one of only two teams to
beat Paxton on their home
floor over the last four years.
Paxton lost to FAMU High
45-42 at home in 2006 in
the closing moments of the
game. Paxton is 3-2 versus
FAMU High in five playoff
games. This was only the
second meeting between
Paxton and FAMU High in
the Region final. Paxton de-
feated FAMU 56-50 in 1986
in the Region final on the
way to the program's first
girls state championship.
FAMU is now 5-5 in Region
finals with Paxton holding a
5-2 mark. Paxton's two loss-
es occurred in 1995 when
Kaunda Williams hit a shot
at the buzzer in Laurel Hill
to defeat Paxton 59-58 and
in 2007 when Malone beat
the Bobcats 67-58.


Paxton girls to face Lake


Worth


Trinity


Christian Academy in state semi-finals


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
are back in a familiar situa-
tion. The squad will be the
only public school of the four
in the Class A girls state bas-
ketball tournament, which
begins on Wednesday, Feb-
ruary 20, at 9 a.m. Central
time at the Lakeland Cen-
ter. The Bobcats, who will
play the second game of the
day at 10:30 a.m., will face
Region 4 winner Lake Worth
Trinity Christian Academy
for a spot in Friday's 11 a.m.
Class A state championship
game.
The Bobcats have expe-
rience and history on their
side. Paxton has made four
trips to the Final Four and
brought back the title each
time. Paxton is one of the
few schools to ntvert have


lost a game in the .Final
Four, they are a perfect 8-0
on the big stage.
The Warriors of Trinity
Christian are making their
first ever appearance at the
Final Four and have only
one senior on their roster.
Like Paxton, the team has
won 14 straight games and
has only 320 students in
grades 6-12.

Unlike Paxton, the school
fielded no junior varsity
squad and is a private school
in south Florida. They boast
a solid resume in having
knocked off top-ranked
Lake Worth Christian in
the second round 63-61 and
won all three playoff games
on the road, finishing as the
runner-up to Lake Worth
Christian in the District 13


tournament.
Fred Erdman, who is in
his sixth year as the squad's
head coach, has seen the
squad advance one round
further each of the past
three seasons. The War-
riors, like Paxton, lost in the
region final in 2007, increas-
ing their hunger for a trip to
Lakeland this season.
The Warriors are 19-4 on
the season and have three
players from the same fam-
ily on the team. Freshman
Danielle McCray and sev-
enth-grader Alicia McCray
are sisters and one of their
cousins is also on the team.
The team doesn't have a ju-
nior on the squad and senior
Marialuz Sanchez is a role
player. The team is young,
but talented, featuring solid


three-point shooting and a
sophomore point guard in
Jamierra Faulkner that had
23 points in their win over
Miami Northwest Christian
Academy on Saturday.
Both teams are solid
defensively. Expect a low
scoring contest where free
throws could make the dif-
ference. Paxton must de-
fend freshman Danielle Mc-
Cray in the low post to win
the game and the Warriors
may be the quickest team
the Bobcats have faced this
season.
Tourney Notes: Paxton is
8-0 in four 'trips to the state
tournament, the last in
1996-97. No other team that
has played in eight games
at the Final Four has won
them all, Bradenton South-


east won their first seven at
the Final Four before los-
ing the state championship
game in 2003. This game
may produce the eventual
state champion. Ocala St.
John Lutheran and Sara-
sota Christian have the
honor of playing the first
game of the day at 9 a.m.
Expect Lutheran to capture
the win and face the survi-
vor of the Paxton game for
the title. Paxton appears to
be the most veteran team
of the four, and has a very
experienced coaching staff
in dealing with games at the
state tourney. Keep in mind


that Paxton has not played
from behind much this sea-
son. The Bobcats are much
better when they build a
first half lead and make
the other squad try to solve
their defense. A 10-15 point
deficit early will be tough
to overcome, but not .im-
possible. There is not a ton
of depth for any of the four
teams, meaning a heavy
foul contest could see the
team that has bench play-
ers step up will likely take
home the state title. Paxton
is a solid free throw shoot-
ing team, but only averages
12 free throws per game.


~' 1


VIKKI PEPPER(24) looks for teammate Maryllyn Gil-
bert(11) to come open during the Bobcats victory over FAMU
High. Pepper, Gilbert and Olivia Adams are the squad's
three seniors that have posted a 49-2 record at home the last
four years.


SOPHOMORE ERIN
WALKER scored eight points
at Paxton defeated FAMU
High 44-37. The Bobcats
will make their first trip to
the Final Four since 1997.

Citizens express disapproval


of wayfinding signage


By JEFFREY POWELL
An unusually large crowd
gathered for the Feb. 13
South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC)
regular meeting. Although
there were several items on
the agenda, there was but
one thing on the minds of
the attendees; wayfinding
signs.
Wayfinding signs have
been installed on CR-30A
and at the county lines wel-
coming visitors to the area.
Almost immediately since
the installation, citizens
have been voicing their dis-
approval of the bright blue
signs.
"I was shocked by the look
of these signs on 30-A," said
citizen Dave Rauschkolb.
"They are out of scale, too


big and too blue. The signs
are not good for the TDC or
the county. I do not think
you're going in the right di-
rection." Rauschkolb's com-
ments drew applause from
audience.
According to a wayfind-
ing signage. program time
line provided by the TDC
the first work done on the
project was in January
2002 when the TDC formed
a design group to develop
a "family of signs" for the
area. Since then the pro-
gram has been presented
to the Scenic Corridor Com-
mittee, the Walton County
Design Review Board and
the Walton County Planning
Commission. In October of
2002 a story concerning the
project was published in the


DeFuniak Herald-Breeze.
In Feburary 2004 the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) ap-
proved a one-cent increase
in the bed tax to cover the
$260,000 program. In Sep-
tember of 2007 a contract
was awarded to NW Sign
Industries to fabricate and
install the signs.
Recognizing the need to
address citizens' concerns,
TDC Interim Executive Di-
rector Sonny Mares sug-
gested making some adjust-
ments to the signs.
"We are aware some of
the signs are very tall,"
Mares said. "Perhaps we
could reduce the height and
soften the signs by adding
some landscaping." Mares'
comments fell on deaf ears.


"I would like to know
what threshold we need to
cross for you to understand
that these signs are a ter-
rible mistake," said Ed Wal-
borsky. "You can put a bon-
net on a pig and you still
have a pig. The signs are
abysmal."
As part of a compromise,
the TDC was ready to re-
move one of the signs at the
south end of the Clyde B.
Wells bridge but a citizen
had already done so accord-
ing to Mares. The Sheriffs
office has been contacted
concerning the crime.
The TDC plans to hold a
workshop concerning the fu-
ture of the program. A date
for the workshop has yet to
be determined.


Buyers

bailed

out by

planning

board
By LEAH STRATMANN
In one of the more classic
cases of caveat emptor, the
Walton County planning
commission opted to bail out
eight lot buyers who bought-
land in a 10-lot single family
subdivision in Inlet Beach
where two of the 10 lots were
platted with 5-foot setbacks
and the other eight with
7.5-feet setbacks, rendering
the lots all but unsuitable
for building a home.
Scott Jenkins of Stan-
ford & Associates, also rep-
resenting the homeowners
association, requested the
project known as Park Place
be classified as a Planned
Unit Development (PUD) in
order that variances to the
7.5-foot setbacks could be
changed to 5-fodt setbacks.
Jenkins argued the project
was approved some time ago
and platted with PUD set-
backs in place for two of the
lots and he sought to have
the other eight lots desig-
nated the same.
Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell said, "Are you trying to
put a PUD on a PUD? Since
there are no homes there,
what is the specific intent
and purpose of this?'"
Jenkins said when the
homeowners purchased
the property, they thought
they were purchasing lots
with 5-foot setbacks, but the
project was approved with
7.5-foot setbacks. "The ad-
ditional space is for garages
and so forth. All the lots
have been sold to individu-

Alys Beach proposes public multi-use path


By DOTTY NIST
The public will be able to
bike or hike along a natural
area on the north side of the
Alys Beach property, if a re-
cent proposal by representa-
tives of this large, upscale
beachfront development in
southeastern Walton Coun-
ty is finalized.
Jason Comer and other
representatives of Alys
Beach approached the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) on
Feb. 12 regarding the pro-
posal.
The purpose of the pro-
posal is to satisfy a Walton
County recreational plat
requirement calling for the
development to furnish five
percent of the gross prop-
erty area or the monetary
equivalent for public recre-
ational use. Alys Beach has
offered to put approximately
20 acres at the back of the
property into a conservation
easement. Also included
in the agreement would be
construction by Alys Beach
of a $1 million+ multi-use
boardwalk and trail across
the easement for public use.


The bicycle-pedestrian
trail would link up with the
Timpoochee Trail multi-use
path, which traverses south
Walton County.


District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon encouraged
support of the proposal..
"I think it's more than
fair...It's above and beyond


what the code calls for,"
Brannon commented.
Pat Blackshear, Walton
County director of planning
and development servic-


es, recommended that the
county ensure that the path
is clearly identified for pub-

Xeriscaping ordinance moves on

endeavors. Photo by Jeffrey Powell


By LEAH STRATMANN
An ordinance amending
the Walton County Land
Development Code to estab-
lish incentives for water-
efficient landscaping (xe-
riscaping) by providing for
consistency with state law
and the Walton County Com-
prehensive Plan came back
before the Planning Com-
mission Board last week,
after some tweaking by the
planning department. One
of the items tweaked con-
derned asking developers to
provide a xeriscaping plan
as part of the overall devel-
opment process. This adden-
dum puts some teeth in the
ordinance, making sure de-
velopers follow such a plan
or come under the scrutiny
of code enforcement.
In the revised ordinance,
presented by county plan-
ner Janice McDonald, ag-


riculture was exempted as
part of the revision process,
as were non-irrigated areas.
"The intent of the ordinance
is to not use potable water
for plant watering. We don't
want to be restrictive just
to be restrictive," McDonald
noted.
The purpose of a xeriscap-
ing ordinance is to keep the
irrigation system to a mini-
mum. The law requires a
xeriscape ordinance in place
where potable water is com-
ing from something like the
Florida aquifer. "We also
need a pro-active education-
al campaign for the public to
accompany this ordinance,"
noted county planning di-
rectory Pat Blackshear.
Part of the education pro-
cess would not only intro-
duce citizens to the proper
kinds of plants to use for
landscaping, but also to en-


courage people to have rain
barrels or cisterns on their
property to use for irriga-
tion when needed.
The ordinance allows for
25 percent of the plants to
be non-native in landscaped
areas, but not in areas
marked as preservation. It
was pointed out that most, if
not all, native plants to the
region are drought-tolerant.
The county has a complete
list of native plants as well
as other drought-tolerant
plants so the public can
make sensible landscaping
plans for private property.
It was noted that at the
time of development, an
environmental assessment
must be provided showing
the non-invasive vegetation
on the site and native plants
or other water-tolerant veg-
etation must replace these.
Some plants native to the


coast would not be native
to all of Walton County, but
each section of the county
has water-tolerant plants,
which would be appropriate
to the ordinance.
Meg Nelson addressed
the commissioners say-
. ing, "I would like to thank
this body for creating this
ordinance. I was bragging
on Walton County for even
proposing this ordinance.
I am very pleased that we
are addressing this. I would
suggest that when we start
the education campaign we
target homeowners associa-
tions," she concluded.
S Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell said the county is stress-
ing the aquifer and felt the
ordinance was a step in the
right direction. Commission-
er William Maxson made a
motion to approve the ordi-
nance, which was approved
by all:

District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows had con-
cerns that the people other
than Alys Beach property
owners might not feel com-
fortable in accessing the
trail. She said she thought
the development was "some-
what intimidating to the
public." She urged for highly
visible signs pointing to and
marking the path if the pro-
posal is approved, and ad-
equate parking for trail us-
ers. She also questioned the
placement of the trail at the
back of the development.
Comer responded that
the proposed easement
property is quite beautiful
land. "The public is welcome
to come back up and enjoy
this park," he noted.
He also disagreed with
the characterization of
Alys Beach as unwelcom-
ing to outsiders. Comer an-
nounced that Alys Beach
plans to build a town center
area similar to Seaside's.
The public will have access
to businesses there, and, in
fact, the development will
be seeking their support in
order to make the venture a
success, he explained.
Meadows continued to
advise caution with the
proposal, observing that

Brannon continued to
speak in favor of the propos-
al but agreed on the signage
matter and that the intent
of public use must be made
clear. He moved to approve,
but withdrew his motion
after a request from Mike
Burke, county legal counsel,
for an opportunity to work
on the easement agreement
and bring it back before the
commissioners at a future

from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the
WaterColor Inn. The Water-

"We are very excited to
offer this workshop to our
lodging partners as we focus

the audience in order to bet-
ter appreciate the harp, Ka-


a forum to learn from local,
regional and state experts
on environmentally sound
practices, and how to par-
ticipate in DEP's Florida
Green Lodging program."
The workshop will cover
recommendations on adopt-
ing a variety of environ-
mentally sound practices
that can be applied to ac-
commodations ranging from
single rental units to bed
and breakfasts to hotels.
Experts will address how fa-
cilities can implement green
initiatives that save money,
protect the. environment
and open the door to new
marketing opportunities. In
addition, DEP experts will
discuss the benefits of hotels
and motels participating in
the Green Lodging program,
and the process to apply.

Katie Ott began her harp

"Marketing to this grow-

the potential to bring strong

practices by securing the

Last July, Governor Crist

this designation will have
the competitive advantage
for hosting government
groups and state agencies.

BUYERS FROM FRONT


als," Jenkins said.
County planner Lois La
Seur said, "Normally a PUD
is created for other purposes
than just reducing side set-
backs. They already have
existing platted lots. They
purchased these lots with
7.5 setbacks delineated.
We don't really have a good
vehicle for changing the
setbacks. I understand the


homeowners are in a bind
about it, but this is not re-
ally a PUD."
Pat Blackshear agreed,
saying, "What we have to
look at is whether or not this
is a PUD. As you well know,
this is not really a PUD.
We have seen projects come
through here labeled as
PUDs in order to acquire the
variances. These lots really


are not suitable for building.
This will open the door to
less-than-desirable projects
coming back through here
seeking variances. We could
not support an adjustment
to the board of adjustments
because there was no hard-
ship," she emphasized.
Commissioner Randy
Gardner had quite a bit to
say about this particular


The Walton County Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) and Friends of Coast-
al Branch Library present
the February Art in Public
Places exhibit, featuring
the quilts of Women on the
Fringe. Each month, this
partnership brings new,
distinct exhibits to-the-pub-
lic through displays at the
Coastal Branch Library .
Women on the Fringe
(WOTF) is a local fiber arts
or art quilt group. The
group is membership, based
and consists of members
from Santa Rosa Beach,
Panama City, Fort Walton,
Freeport and Baker, FL.
The exhibit at the Coastal
Branch Library will consist
of tie dye wall hangings,
large and small quilted piec-
es and much more. The art-
ists are not limited to just


fabric choices. They also
use paint, inks, Shiva oil
sticks, stamps, beads, vari-
ous threads, ribbons, cords,
yarns and even digital im-
agery printed on fabric.
They are always on the look
out for unusual materials to
use on art pieces. The group
refers to themselves as fiber
artists that create fiber art.
Members of WOTF are ac-,
tive in the fiber arts commu-
nity, belonging to online art
quilting groups and partici-
pating in online challenges
and art exchanges with peo-
ple from all over the world.
Many of the members have
won awards and their work
has been shown in national
and local shows as well as in
traveling exhibits through-
out the country.
WOTF meets on the first
Thursday of the month


at the Coastal Branch Li-
brary at 9:30 a.m. During
these meetings they share
techniques and new "art"
findings. They are always
open to new members. The
membership is made up of
many personal styles and
the pieces on display at the
library are a reflection of
the diversity of the group.,
If anyone is. interested in
more information regarding
WOTF please contact Ann
Morrell at yzarctoo@aol.
com, or 231-9006.

Public forum scheduled Thursday


As a result of the severe
drought in the Southeastern
United States, the struggle
to find consensus among
conflicting water policies
in Florida, Alabama and
Georgia will be discussed
at the next public forum of
the South Walton Commu-
nity Council on Feb. 21. It
will be held at the Coastal
Branch Library at 7 p.m.
The speaker will be Donn
Rodekohr of Auburn Univer-


sity, an Agronomy and Soils
GeoSpatial Analyst. His ca-
reer originated in Nebraska
where he was a member of
the Nebraska Water Re-
sources Center. Later he
shifted to private industry
in Colorado, consulting with
New Mexico on adjudicating
the Rio Grande River.

Rodekohr recently moved
to Alabama where he is re-
searching the three dimen-


sional location of water and
managing water resources
under stressed conditions.
His talk is illustrated by an,
animated powerpoint pre-
sentation.

This program is part of
the ongoing education series
held monthly by the SWCC.
The public is invited to at-
tend without charge. For
more information call Ella
Caro at 231-6038.

project. "There have been
objections based on view
corridors and so forth. This
is a difficult position. I know
this property very well. This
parcel was developed by an
out-of-state developer who
is now gone. The unfortu-
nate buyer of the lot wakes
up and finds out what he
bought. In this case it was
a PUD to start with and the
lots are basically unbuild-
able. A house 14-feet wide
is not practical. Asking for
a re-plat to go to 5-foot set-
backs has no adverse effect.
Two of the 10 lots already
have the 5-foot setback. My
problem is not the request,
just the precedent. It helps
eight people, and hurts no
one, but it does set prece-
dence. Similar requests
cannot be granted .on pre-
cedence, but everyone else
would be subject to coming
before the commission for
consideration," he conclud-
ed.
County planners said the
original development order
was not a PUD and the par-
cel was platted with eights
lots with 7.5-foot setbacks
and two lots with 5-foot set-
backs. The property is locat-
ed north of Park Place Av-
enue, west of South Orange
Street and south of Pompa-
no Street in Inlet Beach.
Commissioner Taim Ter-


rell had this opinion: "There
is some concern on the board
that in order to do what is
right for eight of the hom-
eowners, we could be setting
a precedent that could bite
us in the rear later on. My
concern is the people who
bought the lots bought them
with 7.5 setbacks and now
that they have seen the land
and know they can't build
on it, they want us to bail
them out. The developer is
long gone and there was not
enough research done by the
land buyers. We don't want
to hurt somebody on pur-
pose, but we also don't want
to hurt Walton County," he
said.


SO mm 4 b bm-


"I feel strongly about the
request, but I make a motion
to approve the request'and
that all future projects be
looked at on their own mer-
its. I am fully aware buyers
bought lots sight-unseen,
which is not our responsibil-
ity, but the request is rea-
sonable in this instance,"
said Gardner in motioning
for approval.
Commissioner Sally Mer-
rifeld said, "We have to be
very cautious. We cannot
right every wrong."
In the end, the motion
passed with Merrifeld and
Terrell voting no, but the
remainder of the board ap-
proving the request.

RALPH RICKLEY, a retired private investigator and
20-year veteran with the San Diego police force, shares sto-
ries about crimes he solved during his career. Sherlock Hol-
mes became the prototype for the modern mastermind detec-
tive and made an impact upon the popular imagination as
the most enduring character of detective fiction.


BETTY AND JOE MUSTACHIO take the oath of the Sherlockians to become one of the
last members initiated into the local chapter. The chapter is limited by international by-
laws to 50 members and reached that number this year.'
