State sends


warning letters to


local borrow pits


By DOTTY NIST
State authorities recently
called for corrective mea-
sures and restoration on two
borrow pit sites and a sand
mine pit site, all in Wal-
ton County. Regulators are
concerned that activities on
these properties may have
violated state statute.
Following site inspec-
tions, the state Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) issued warning let-
ters to responsible officials
of the three operations in
early February.
The Walton County bor-
row pit on Rock Hill Road is
one of the sites subject to the
DEP warning. The other two
sites are the sand mine pit
south of Mill Creek owned
by Tindle Enterprises, also
in the Rock Hill Road area,
and the Black Creek Pit, a
borrow pit on CR-3280.
The Walton County bor-
row pit is used as a source
of materials for county proj-
ects, including foundations,
clay for ball fields, and road
stabilization, according
to Chris Mitchell, Walton
County public information
officer. Mitchell said this
pit is in use periodically but


is not the county's primary
source for fill dirt.
Mitchell estimated that
the county had acquired the
pit property from 20 to 30
years ago. Outwash during
rain events and resulting
sedimentation of wetlands
on adjacent property are the
state's major concerns with
the Walton County borrow
pit, judging from an inspec-
tion report by Rod Danner of
DEP.
"The area inundated
by outwash sediment con-
tained mature trees which
have been killed by the pres-
ence of the sediment," Dan-
ner reported. He estimated'
the area of sedimentation
at about seven-tenths of an
acre.
Florida law prohibits un-
permitted dredging or exca-
vating that is likely to be a
source of pollution. Nuisance
discharges of materials into
surface waters of the state,
including wetlands, are also
prohibited.
DEP has directed that
the county apply for a 'state
dredge and fill permit in
connection with the county

DFS Council declines


new home impact fee


By ALICIA LEONARD
The final presentation
on the transport impact fee
study drew ire from the De-
Funiak Springs City council.
David Metcalf presented the
study. The study proposed
that a single-family dwell-
ing could be charged $1,515
fee at the time of building or
,purchase.
SCouncilman James Huff-
man was the first one to
speak against the fees, "I
think we are pricing people
out of the market. We need
to encourage homeowner-
ship. This doesn't do that.
I thank you for your report,
you did a good job, but these
fees are too high for an aver-
age family to pay to become
a part of our community."
Council Member Don
Harrison agreed with Huff-
man's comments and added,


"I think we have to look at
the commercial aspect of
this as well. At $438 per
1000 square feet, if a shop-
ping center is 100,000
square feet, we are looking
at charging a new busi-
ness $438,000 just to come
build here. That's no way
to get new business into our
town." The Council agreed
unanimously to not pursue
the increase in impact fees
and shelve the idea until
there is more growth in the
city or, as Harrison added,
"The economy gets better."
The annual audit of the
city's finances was pre-
sented by Curtis Chastain
of the accounting firm Tip-
ton, Marler, Garner and
Chastain. Sara Bowers, city
financial officer, drew praise
from Council members and
Chastain alike. The city


increased its net worth by
$255,234 in the last year
and has a balance of over
$6 million in unrestricted
funds it can access in case of
a natural disaster or emer-
gency. The only advice giv-
en for improvement to the
Council from the accounting
firms was the issue of keep-,
ing on top of purchasing
orders and backing up bid
policy when only one busi-
ness participates in the bid
process.
The Council approved
5-0, an airport overlay dis-
trict and height- zoning or-
dinance and an update to
the DeFuniak Springs mu-
nicipal building codes. The
airport zoning will help keep
buildings the proper height
and distance from the air-

2004-05 school year. Prior
to that, he worked in Oka-
loosa County schools, main-
ly at Niceville High School,
where he served as a teach-

This academic year, FHS
is educating 338 students,
grades 9 12. Murphy says
this is a slight increase over
last year's figure.
A native of Portsmouth,
OH., Murphy moved to Flor-
ida in 1964, and has been
an educator for 28 years.
His initial career goal was
to teach physical education.
"It was my love." However,
a scarcity of jobs in that
field moved him to add so-
cial studies to his teaching
repertoire. Murphy taught
history for years. "It's my
second love." He also man-

(Part three of a Herald se-
ries in recognition of Black
History Month)
By CHRIS MANSON
James Huffman was in
the 11th grade at Tivoli
High School when he met
the first person outside of
his immediate family who
would have a significant
impact on his life. Huffman
said T.P. Campbell, Tivoli's
principal and later assistant
principal of Walton High
School, taught him "consis-
tency, fairness, respect for
,protocol and procedure. He
was a humble man, but was
never afraid to say what was
on his mind."
Huffman said when he


began school at Tivoli, the
standards and requirements
were similar to Courtland,
Alabama Central High,
where he relocated from in
1965. "The only thing that
changed were the names
and faces," he said.
A framed photograph
in Huffman's DeFuniak
Springs home depicts three
restroom doors labeled
LADIES, MEN, and COL-
ORED. The photo, which
Huffman purchased from
the National Civil Rights
Museum in Memphis, TN.,
is titled "History" and in-
cludes the quote: "You can-
not know where you are go-
ing until you know where
you have been."
"When I came here, ev-
erything was segregated,"
said Huffman. "In Alabama,
when we went to a restau-
rant, we had to go through
the back and eat in the
kitchen. At the movies, we
had to sit in the balcony. I
remember having to exit
public buses through the
back door."
Huffman discovered that
the two cultures were exact-
ly the same. "I look at that
as just a part of history," he
said. "I learned a lot in spite
of all that. I learned a deeper
appreciation for my people
in that in light of all the ob-
stacles and difficulties, that
we, as a people, have always
overcome."
Recalling what used to
be known as "the east side,"
Huffman said, "When I came
here, the black community
was a self-functioning, sep-
arate entity a city within
the city." Blacks owned and
operated service stations,
funeral homes, dry cleaners,
and movie theaters.
During that time, De-
Funiak Springs was also a

refuses

Johnson's

latest

request
By ALICIA LEONARD
In a bold move, the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
unanimously to not approve
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WSCO) request to
return $311,000 in unused
and questionable funds said
to be for the payment of 911
call service upgrades.
Sheriff Ralph Johnson did
not attend the meeting and
sent a spokesperson, Capt.
Eddie Farris, in his place to
answer the BCC's questions.
Johnson revoked his prior
request for approximately
$400,000 in excess funds
be returned to his budget to
pay for a controversial driv-
ing track.
Farris explained to the
BCC that the 911 upgrades

Computers for Iraq


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2008
. ~.... . ... ; ,".'*,--,. ".' ..- - I


By ALICIA LEONARD
A few weeks ago J. B.
Hillard, president of the
Chautauqua Cyber Club,
received an email appeal
from Command Sergeant
Major Delbert Hoskins at
an undisclosed location in
Iraq. Hoskins' home base is
Fort Campbell, KY., and his
unit is part of the "Scream-
ing Eagles."
Hoskins shared with
Hillard the need for troops
to have computers to be
able to communicate with
their families. Hillard said,
"Where this unit is located,
they have little for the troops
other than what they need
for the job. From scraps,
this unit built themselves a
:'theater.' They just received
:two of those video confer-
ence setups so they can
communicate and see their
-family back home. The CSM
has told his people they will


have a communications and
education center. He didn't
know how they would do it,
but that it would done. So
he went on the Internet and
found the OWC/CCC opera-
tion, where computers are
loaned and given to needy
students. Okaloosa-Walton
College and the Chautauqua
Cyber Club have had a long-
time partnership of provid-
ing computers for education
and to the needy who are
homebound."
Hillard started a commu-
nity drive called "Comput-
ers for Iraq," computer drive
and between OWC and CCC,
20 computers, 24 17-inch
monitors and three boxes of,
keyboards and cables have
been prepared for shipment
courtesy of OWC/CCC. Al
of them have been checked
out and are in good working
order. OWC/CCCincluded
a box of material for edu-
cational distance-learning,


should the unit wish to par-
ticipate through Okaloosa-
Walton College.
Hillard said, "I've been
squirreling away a few com-
puters for the new senior
center, but that can wait.
This is more important!"
Hillard also reminded the
Herald that computer do-
nations are always needed.
"If you have been thinking
about a new computer, now
is a good time to make the
purchase and donate your
old unit.The CCC is a non-
profit 501c3-organization, so
donations can be tax-deduc-
table. If you prefer to donate
to OWC, that is just fine.
OWC will issue a tax letter
upon request, the same for
the CCC."
The computers are ten-
tatively scheduled to be de-
livered to Hurlburt Field on
Feb. 22. to start their long
journey to Iraq.

computers ready for shipment to Iraq.

FROM FRONT


pit.
Mitchell explained that
the county did not obtain a
state permit for the pit be-
fore it went into operation
because there was no such
thing as a borrow pit permit
decades ago, when the. coun-
ty obtained the property. He
said it was Walton County
who contacted DEP to do
the inspection and that the
county is cooperating fully
with DEP to resolve the
matter.
"It appeared that at the
current time Walton County
is attempting to utilize 'best
management practices' in
a proactive erosion control
and management of the bor-
row pit," Danner stated in
his inspection report. He
noted that a series of ter-
races with berms had been
put in place parallel to the
wetland areas, along with
sedimentation cloth, for
purposes of erosion control.
DEP recommendations
included repair or replace-
ment of missing or deterio-
rated sections of the sedi-
mentation cloth, along with
removal of the outwash


sediment from the neigh-
boring property, restoration
and replanting of native
vegetation in the impacted
wetlands. Monitoring of the
site to guard against further
outwash was also directed.
A report on the DEP in-
spection of the Black Creek
pit, owned by Black Creek
of Northwest Florida, noted
that culverts placed on the
property had impounded a
portion of Black Creek and
that .other culverts were
draining directly into wet-
lands. Problems with silt-
ation of wetlands and the
creek, along with erosion of
a large pile of red sand into
wetlands, were also report-
ed.
"It became evident that
siltation into Black Creek
has been extreme, affecting
a large area of Black Creek,"
Danner stated.
DEP recommended a
number of corrective mea-
sures on the property, in-
cluding removal of sedimen-
tation below the culverts,
immediate erosion controls,
and the development and
implementation of a resto-


ration plan for the property
as soon as possible.
A DEP report on the Tin-
die Enterprises sand mine
pit explains that an agree-
ment was reached with
the property owner in July
2006 that erosional controls
would be put in place and
that work on the pit would
stop.
Then, due to severe run-
off from the property into
Mill Creek, complaints by
neighbors in December 2006
prompted an inspection by
DEP. Further complaints
after large rain events in
2007 led to another site visit
and consideration of which
agencies would direct en-
forcement action. Bureau of
Mine Reclamation officials
participated in evaluations
along with DEP at that
time.
According to a report by
Danner on a recent inspec-
tion, officials observed no
erosional controls in place
on the property, except for
some riprap in the area of
the original wash out, which
was judged to be ineffective
against the majority of the
I

report by state authorities. (Photo courtesy of DEP staff)


erosion.
"It is important to note
that at this time the Tindle
property is essentially land-
locked by an adjacent prop-
erty owner who denies ac-
cess," Danner commented.
He reported a silt deposit
along the creek extending
over four-tenths of a mile
from the wash out area.
"Numerous trees and
other wetland plants have
been killed by the deposi-
tion which is several feet in
depth," he stated.
Recommendations for
the Tindle property in-
cluded immediate erosional
controls, development and
implementation of a plan to
remedy environmental dam-
age and restore the stream
with native vegetation. Ac-
cess to the property along
the power line right-of-way
was suggested in view of the
neighbor's unwillingness to
grant access to the owner.


On Feb. 22, DEP spokes-
man Sally Cooey comment-
ed that DEP staff members
were "in the process of ar-
ranging meetings" with the
property owners who had
received the warning let-
ters, with the goal of gaining


their cooperation to resolve
these matters.

With the exception of
Walton County, the Herald]
Breeze was unable to reach
the owners of these proper-
ties for comment.

*LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor,
DFS Relay For Life would like officially and publicly to
thank the local Winn-Dixie management for its generous
donation of all the ice cream happily enjoyed at the Relay's
recent Survivors' Ice Cream Social. Thanks also to the lo-
cal First United Methodist Church for the use of its social
hall.
Several people recently engaged in their own personal
fight against cancer connected at the event with the sup-
port resources of the American Cancer Society. This is a
good thing in itself, and also serves to remind Relay par-
ticipants exactly what it's all about.
I think I speak for the rest of the steering committee
when I add my personal thanks to Melissa Hardee, chil-
dren's activities chair, for bearing the considerable ex-
pense of the substantial refreshments on offer before the
ice cream was served. Her personal logistics of the day,
along with a prior association, resulted in her purchase
of several party platters from a major national sandwich
chain at its Sandestin outlet. There is no such outlet in De-
Funiak Springs. She was refused a Relay-related discount.
Perhaps the ironic lesson in this instance is : buy locally,
even if it means going out of your way.
Many thanks to the Herald for the opportunity to ex-
press our gratitude.
Sincerely yours,
Dave Sinclair, publicity chair
DFS Relay For Life


Editor:
Everyone is talking about going "Green." I am all for it,
but I have never seen the thing I think is one of the worst
mentioned. That is junk mail and getting a dozen phone
books no one needs or wants. Yet you see them thrown out
at evey mail box and many sent through the mail. Also,
sample newspaper thrown out on everyone's driveway. I
thought it was against the law to litter. Isn't that what
this is?
I resent having to clean up their mess and I have never
heard anyone say they wanted them. As for junk mail, I
hate to go to 'my mailbox because of all the junk mail, cata-
logs, books from everybody that thinks, they can make you
believe they have a magic cure for all your diseases, money
problems and everything else. I may get two dozen pieces
of mail a month that is worth bringing in the house. All the
rest is junk and unwanted, At least two or three hundred
pieces, ask my mail carrier, I'm sure he hates it, too, My
point is, just thinking of all the trees that are wasted for
this mess. The phone book I get from my telephone com-
pany is the only one I need or want. Somebody, please get
a law passed to stop junk from coming to my mailbox...or
being thrown out atmy house.
Thank. You
Lois Barley

Editor:
I am excited about the new elementary school at Mossy
Head. My son used to have to be at the bus stop at 6:15-
6:30 a.m. but my grandson was there to see the ground
breaking of the new school, and he won't be tired from an
hour or better bus ride. I do hope we get some really good
teachers and Mossy Head will have success as their water
department has. An A-B school would be so very good. Re-
member a beautiful school needs dedicated teachers. I can
remember a principal in Guyton, GA. that knew the names
of each of his students. They excelled because he expected
it. I plan on spending an hour each school night making
sure my grandson knows about how lucky he is to go to a
new school, three miles from where he lives, Good luck and
God bless all that help to make Mossy Head Elementary
excel. A post office next?

building code ordinance is a
reorganization of minimum
standards codes already on
the books.
The airport also received
unanimous approval for the
city's part of an 80/20 grant
by the Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) for the pur-
chase of a new tractor and
equipment for grounds up-
keep. The purchase price
for the equipment totals at
almost $44,900, of which the
city is responsible for 20 per-
cent of the purchase price.
The South Walton Tour-

(SWTDC) representative
Tiffany McCaskill present-
ed DeFuniak Springs Fire
Chief Brian Cooley with a

painted the original work
after the 9-11 attack on
New York to raise money
for police and fire widows
and children's benefit fund.
The original painting hangs
in the South Walton Fire


District building. McCa-
skill told the Council, "We
wanted a print to hang here
in DeFuniak, as well, for the
wonderful job our fire and
police departments perform
everyday."
Dennis Ray, representing
the DeFuniak Springs Visi-
tors Council (DSVC) sub-
mitted a request for the first
ever "Peddlers Alley" event.
Ray told the Council, "We
are hoping this increases
foot traffic in the downtown
area and brings new people
into our downtown area, as
well." The Peddlers Alley
event will seek merchants,
artists, farmers and citi-
zens who want to sell their
wares, to the alleys between
6th Street and 9th Street on
May 3 between the hours of
9 a.m.-2 p.m. Council mem-
bers agreed that it would
be a good idea as long as all
those involved, including
merchants, were okay with
the idea. Ray reassured that.
the group would follow all
rules and apply for a special
events permit. The Council

tentatively approved the
event, 5-0, and directed Ray
to meet with the city man-
ager and fire chief to make
preparations for the event.

Renewals for agreement
came before the Council
next. The Council approved


unanimously to renew agree-
ments between the Florida
Public Employees Council
Bargaining unit, the local
gas tax option agreement
with Walton County and the
fire agreement agreement
with the North American
Family Institute (NAFI).


MURPHY


sity of West Florida.
As leader of FHS, Mur-
phy characterizes his mis-
sion as being "to work 100
percent toward student
achievement," because high
school is the "last step" be-
fore college or an adult ca-
reer. Murphy particularly
enjoys what he calls the
"miraculous" transforma-
tion students make in their
high-school years, "from
ninth-graders to young men
and women."
To accomplish his goal,
Murphy says he has imple-
mented not so much a new,
but rather an "enhanced"
academic program? The core
curriculum consists of math,
science, social, studies,' gov-.,.
ernment, and English. The
school also offers Spanish,
physical education,--health,
business classes, and class-
es in cooking and fashion
design. Examples of Mur-
phy's enhancement efforts
include increased engineer-
ing classes, a modernized
business lab, renovated from
basic computers, and typing
classes to Web design.
Also in place is an on-
the-job training program,
OJT, which gives teachers
and students a "real sense
of achievement and com-
munity service." FHS also
partakes of the dual enroll-
ment program at Okaloosa-
Walton College, with three

teachers and seven students
actively participating in
math, science, and social
studies classes.
Athletics are likewise not
ignored at FHS. Murphy
ticks off the list of sports -
football, cross-country, girls'
volleyball, co-ed soccer, golf,
boys' and girls' basketball,
girls' weight-lifting, base-
ball, girls' softball, boys' and
girls' tennis, and track. FHS
adheres to the Florida High
School Athletics Associa-
tion's guidelines, requiring
students to maintain a 2.0
grade point average to par-
ticipate in athletics. If a stu-
dent can make the grades,
Murphy says "An athlete
here at Freeport. ca_, ,star
and letter in as many sports
as he or she wants to." Par-
ticipation in the FHS band
likewise requires a 2.0
GPA.
Sports and music are not
the only extracurricular ac-
tivities offered at FHS. Stu-
dents can participate in stu-
dent government, Anchor
Club, National Honor So-
ciety, Youth for Christ, his-
tory, engineering and other
career clubs, and a student
newspaper, 'The Bulldog
Breeze," and the annual
yearbook. At present, there
is no drama club, but the
school is working to put to-
gether a chorus.
Acknowledging that FHS


has dropped in its FCAT
results, Murphy says the
school has already begun
addressing the problem,
scheduling tutoring and
remedial work four days a
week, including bus trans-
portation for students who
need it. The school just com-
pleted the Florida Writes
program,. with 99-percent
student participation. "We
led the district for the last
three years," he says.
The main areas of im-
provement Murphy would
like to see at FHS are in
academic performance and
in enlisting community in-
volvement. Toward those
ends, he sometimes finds
. himself at school from early
morning to late at night.


"Sometimes I live here."
During that time, he walks
the halls, does lunchroom
duty, and visits classrooms
"building a rapport."
This is all part of what
Murphy says he likes best
about his job. "It's the kids.
The nice thing about being
principal is the opportunity
to get to know them...watch
them turn into young adults.
It's fun."

Murphy cites a U.S. News
and World Report study that
listed FHS as among the
best high schools in the na-
tion in successfully meeting
the needs of all its students.
:"That's our goal," he says,
adding, "I couldn't asklfor a
better school."

Cleanup Day, March 8


Board of County Commis-
sioners Sara Comander re-
cently hosted a Community
Cleanup Day on February
9 in her district, along with
the District 4 Public Works
crew and the county's land-
fill department. "One of
the many ways the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners serves the
citizens of Walton County,"
she says, "is by holding their
Community Cleanup Day in
outlying areas such as Villa
Tasso, Point Washington
and Paxton. This gives the


area residents an opportuni-
ty to bring unwanted items,
such as discarded furniture,
washers and dryers, lumber,
metal and other large house-
hold items, to be disposed of
without the citizen making
the long trip to the landfill
in DeFuniak Springs."
Freeport Mayor Mickey
Marse agrees, .commenting
that the February 9 cleanup
day in the area was the first
time an event like this had
ever been held in Freeport
and was much-needed and
appreciated.
In April, the county will
hold "Amnesty Days." Resi-
dents can bring hazardous
materials to be disposed
of properly by county em-
ployees. Collection sites are
the Walton County Fair
Grounds and the South Wal-
ton Mosquito Control Office.
The date is April 12 from 8
a.m. to 1 p.m. On May 10,
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Com-
missioner Comander will
hold another cleanup day in
the Choctaw and Villa Tasso
area.

A quest for Confederate generals


Beach Breeze reporter
Jeffrey Powell has been
searching for the graves-
ites of Confederate generals
for many years, and each
search has been an adven-
ture with a surprising twist.
Powell will share stories of

Saturday Show & Tell pro-
gram on Saturday, March
8, at 2 p.m. at the Walton
County Heritage Museum.


Those attending are wel-
come to share stories of their
quests.

Farris said the WSCO ex-
pected the new 911 center,
with the new equipment that
has already been installed
and near completion, to be
finished before the deadline
due to return the funds. Mo-
torola representative Mike
Brussard confirmed for the
BCC that the equipment
was installed and set to be
switched over on March 10.
BCC Chairman Kenneth
Pridgen told Farris, "The
sheriff always has a project.
If we didn't give it to him,
he could find it somewhere,
just like this money he re-
turned. Someone has got to
know how much money he
has in his budget. I think
the sheriff needs to be here.
He knew this was an impor-
tant meeting."
Commissioner Sara Co-
mander told Farris, "Right
now, we have $48,000 unac-
counted for and I can't see
spending any more money
until the audit of the WSCO
is undergoing is completed."
Commissioner Cindy
Meadows told fellow BCC
members that, "Once we
approve the sheriffs bud-
get, he can do whatever he
wants with it. We can't tell


him how to spend it."
Audience members re-
sponded with an audible,
"Yes, you can." Pridgen
reconfirmed the audience's
outburst by saying, "That's
not how you run a business.
He needs to be here to an-
swer these questions."
Comander rejoined the
discussion asking, "Has any-
one in our office seen a copy
of these contracts?" Farris
responded that he had cop-
ies, but did not bring them
with him.
County attorney Mike
Burke explained to the BCC
that goods and services do
not fall under the capitol
projects law, but buildings
do require the need for BCC
approval.
Citizen Robert Hudson
asked the BCC if these con-
tract were no-bid contracts?
Hudson said,"There is some-
thing fishy going on with
these funds. I'd like to know
where they came from and
how long has he been hold-
ing them back. I request
that the Board deny this re-
quest for additional funds."
Citizens Sonny Heath
and Tom Terrell echoed
Hudson's request. Heath


said, "This would not get my
vote." Terrell told thq BCC,
"It is unconscionable that a
constitutional official would
choose not to meet with the
Commission. I would like
to request that the Auditor
General look into an audit of
the sheriff."
Many of the public speak-
ers requested information of
the BCC, calling attention
to the Herald's publication
of the sheriffs press release
wherein Johnson stated
that he had met with the
commissioners and received
general approval, but not an
official vote, on his projects.
Meadows told the audience
that she did go to Johnson's
office and spoke with him
because she felt that was
part of her job. However,
Commander, Pridgen, and
Jones all verified to the au-
dience that they had never
met with the sheriff on this
issue.

Pridgen called for a vote
on the amendment to the
sheriffs budget. Scott Bran-
non seconded the motion
and the BCC voted unani-
mously to not approve the
budget request.

a grocery, barbershop, and
three-bedroom apartment
under one roof. That was a
strip mall before there were
strip malls."
A men's baseball team,
the Red Sox, played at a
field across from the Coun-
try Kitchen every Sunday
to crowds of hundreds and
went 26-0 one season. "They
had one of the greatest ath-
letes I'd seen, Willie 'Boogie'
Hall," said Huffman. As a
footballer at Tivoli, Hall once
rushed for 12 touchdowns
and 486 yards. "But Boogie
swears the best player was
'Bojack' Farmer. There were
a lot of great players. When
I think about the people this
county has produced, it's re-
ally mind-boggling."
For years,' Huffman has
been compiling and writing
biographies about notable
African-Americans from De-
Funiak Springs. "Out of this
community came, I can't
count the number of law-
yers, doctors, judges, profes-
sional athletes...just about
any profession."
Huffman's "work in
progress" started when his
youngest daughter Candice
expressed an interest in the
black community. "If I get
enough (information), I can
tie the threads together and
explain what Tivoli High
and especially the churches
meant to the community. All
of the people are not 'promi-
nent,' but in my estimation,
they were extraordinary."
He said the genuine feel-
ing shared by alumni of
Tivoli High School can be
explained simply by. spell-'
ing the name backwards: I-
lov-it. Recent class reunions
have welcomed all for-
mer students, not just the
ones that graduated. "It's
the same at Central High


CONTINUED FROM FRONT


School, common among the
prior segregated schools,"
said Huffman.
The black community
"just went away" with the
advent of integration in the
late 1960s, said Huffman.
"Most of the black teachers
also had to leave when they
combined the schools," he
added. "Most of them went
off and got their doctor-
ates."
After graduating from
Tivoli, Huffman attended
Florida A&M University,
where he majored in math-
ematics and minored in
science. He taught math
at Walton High School for
three' years, then returned
to Florida A&M, earned his
master's degree, and be-
came a guidance counselor
and assistant principal.
"The 22 years I was at
Walton High School, I re-
member most of the stu-
dents," said Huffman. "I
know what most of them are
doing now. But the thing I re-
member most is their voices.
Some of them have changed
to the point I don't recognize
the face, but I know them
when I hear their voice."
As a school administra-
tor, Huffman felt it was
important to know each stu-
dent by his or her name.
Huffman lives in De-
Funiak Springs with his
wife of 31 years, artist and
volunteer Patricia. His four
children are grown 'and
have moved to bigger cit-
ies. "One of the problems I
find with small-town Amer-
ica is we lose our best and
brightest because they have
to go away to seek employ-
ment," he said. "We need to
get enough economic diver-
sity and pay decent salaries
so our brightest can stay
home."
In 2004, Huffman filled
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council position A.O. Camp-
bell had held since 1975.
"Politics is something I said
I would never do," he said.
"I don't consider myself a
politician. I always consid-
ered myself a teacher, even


when I was an administra-
tor. Being a Council person,
I consider myself a servant.
My only role is to make life
better for all residents of
DeFuniak Springs."
He said the foray into
city government was not dif-
ficult due to his extensive
school experience and the
fact that he had served on
"every committee you can
think of."
Huffman was reluctant at
first. "When Mr. Campbell
passed away, a friend and
I were riding around, and I
told him, 'All of the people
that we could talk to for ad-
vice are almost gone.' Then
I realized you know what?
We've become those people."
His term ends in April, and
Huffman -said he had not
decided about seeking a sec-
ond term.
"One of the things I would
like to see more of here is di-
versity and inclusion," said
Huffman. "I think all of the.
people need to be involved to
get a better consensus."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2008


Armed robbery suspect


caught shortly after incident


On Saturday. Feb. 23. at,
approximately 3:53 a.m.,
DeFuniak Springs Police De-
partment (DFSPD) officer*
responded to Tom Thumb
#110. at the corner of Live
Oak Avenue and U.S. 331
South, in response to a rob-
bery in progress. Upon their
arrival, the officers spoke
with the store clerks. The
clerks said that a white
male with a beard, wearing
a dark blue or black sweat-


ARRESTED FOR
ROBBER Yis Gary Dean
Powell Jr. of DeFuniak
Springs.


shirt, blue jeans, and a tan
and black cap entered the
store to purchase a small
item. When the clerk began
to close the cash drawer,
the subject grabbed the left
side of the cash drawer and
pulled it around so he could
get to the money. After the
taking the money,'the sub-
ject fled the scene on foot. Af-
ter reviewing the surveil-
lance video, the white male
was identified as Gary Dean
Powell Jr., 34, of DeFunak
Springs. Powell had a tattoo
of two tear drops under his
left eye, a tattoo of praying
hands on the right side of
his neck, and has the letters
G.A.R.Y. tattooed across the
fingers of his left hand.
On the same day, DFSPD
officers were notified of a
subject matching Powell's


description seen at the Pet-
ro gas station in DeFuniak
Springs. Officers responded
to the scene and verified
that the subject was Powell.


Powell was arrested for rob-
bery and transported to the
Walton County Department
of Corrections for booking
and processing.


WCSO arrests suspect in


local church burglaries


On Feb. 19, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) arrested Jaymes
Frank Fox, 43, of DeFuniak
Springs, in connection with
a Feb. 19 burglary of the
New Harmony Baptist
Church, located on Hwy 2-A.
Sheriffs deputies were per-
forming additional security
checks on various churches
after two churches were bur-
glarized during the previous
weekend, and found Jaymes
Fox inside New Harmony
Baptist Church. When he
attempted to flee the scene
on foot, a deputy pursued


and apprehended him.
Investigators have linked
Fox to three other recent
church burglaries at South-
wide Baptist Church and
Westside Baptist Church
in Defuniak Springs, and
Bethel Baptist Church in
the Liberty area. Fox's
shoe prints and car tires
matched evidence at several
of the burglary scenes. The
pry-bar used in all the bur-
glaries was also recovered.
Property including a safe
and a digital camera were
recovered during the inves-
tigation. Fox is also believed


to be responsible for recent
burglaries, at children's
Home Community Center
and Liberty Community
Center. Fox was also found
to be in possession of stolen
sound equipment from two
churches in Okaloosa Coun-
ty.
Fox has been charged with
one count of criminal mis-
chief, one count of burglary
to an unoccupied dwelling,
one count of possession of
burglary tools and one count
of trespassing. Fox is being
held in the Walton County
Jail.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the Mossy Head Water Works Inc. work daily to insure that our customers are provided with the highest quality
drinking water available. We encourage all members to become actively involved in the business of your system.

THE DeFUNITNAK SPRINGS~ HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2008


Mossy Head Water Works, Inc.
2007 Quality Water Report

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about
the excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been, to
provide to you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells
draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent qualityof our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for
disinfection purposes.

In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search
of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available
on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mossy Head Water Works
Inc. at (850) 892-6154. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn
more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each month at our
office building at,7 p.m.

Tips for Saving Water
S.Don't over water your lawn. Only water every three to five days in the summer and 10 to 14 days in the winter.
To prevent water loss from evaporation, don't water your lawn during the hottest part of the day or when it is windy.
Only run the dishwasher and clothes washer when they are fully loaded.
Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running water over it.
When washing dishes by hand, use two basins one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and driveways.
If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.
Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year. Leaky
toilets can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.

Mossy Head Water Works Inc. routinely monitors for Contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for
the period of January 1 to December 31, 2007. Data obtained before January 1, 2007, and presented in this report are
from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs,
springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or
from human activity.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic
systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff,
and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic
systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in.drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that
a water system must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
"ND' means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of
. thb water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/i) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water.
There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which
there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR).
The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high
concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in
conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the
Stage 2 DBPR.

Cracker house living;


growing up in Glendale


By JEFFREYPOWELL
Some months ago the
Herald/Breeze published a
story covering the "Cracker
House" Museum located
in Perry, FL. In the article
it was stated that very few
true "cracker style" homes
still existed.
The article caught the eye
of longtime Walton County
resident Voncille McLeod,
who spent much of her
childhood in just that type
of building.
A cracker house, gener-
ally speaking, is a style of
home built from around
1850 to the early 1900s by
pioneering families that had
moved to the Southeast. The
construction typically fea-
tured a detached kitchen,
two large rooms separated
by a breezway or dogtrott"
that went from the front of
the building to the rear al-
lowing air to cool the home,
and large porches.
McLeod, then Voncille
McInnis, moved to the Glen-
dale community in 1952 with
her parents Sanford and Lu-
cille and her three brothers


Victor, Daniel and Melvin.
The home they moved into
had been built in the late
1800s by John Robert Davis.
Davis' son Hudie was born
in the home in 1912. Years
later Hudie died in the same
house.
By the time McLeod had
moved in, the detached
kitchen had been torn down,
replaced by an indoor con-
venience. "The kitchen even
had running water," McLeod
said. "When we run and got
it from the well."
McLeod's memories of
those early days in Glendale
are filled with thoughts of
the other people in the com-
munity..
"Shortly after we moved
in two of the neighboring
girls walked down the road
to visit," she recalled. "They
were so friendly and curi-
ous about us. Their names
were Carolyn and Mary
Ruth Gressette arid we are
still very good friends to this
day."'
McLeod's memories of
that simpler time are also
punctuated by technological


advances.
"Mr. And Mrs. Gary and
Ida Shuler were the first
people around to get a tele-
vision," McLeod said. "We
-would walk down the dirt
road and invite ourselves in
to watch "Rin Tin Tin," "Jet
Jackson" and "I've Got a Se-
cret" on Wednesday nights."
"It was a very simple
time, we played, did home-
work, ate supper and went
to bed. Life seemed almost
idyllic," she said.
McLeod's father worked
for Sam Rachel Construc-
tion as a carpenter and her
mother was a stay-at-home
mom. The McInnis family
lived in the cracker house
for 15 years before moving
to Center Ridge to a home
built by Sanford and Daniel,
where Lucille still lives.
"Mom and daddy always
worked hard and took care
of us," she said. "I appreci-
ate them today, I tell you."

Today Voncille lives in
DeFuniak Springs with her
husband, former City Coun-
cilman Roy McLeod.


THIS PHOTOGRAPH shows how the 'cracker house' looked when McLeod was a girl
growing up in Glendale.

Ask


Auntie Em

Dear Auntie Em,
I'm a young mother who has a four-year-old son. My
problem is that one of the other moms in my neighbor-
hood has three kids, all under 10, who thinks I want to
babysit all the time. It's not like it's an arranged thing.
She just stops by my door and asks if can she drop the
kids off for a while. I feel bad for her. She is struggling
finically and isn't married. Her family lives about 15
minutes from us, but they won't always sit the kids ei-
ther. I want to help, but it's getting to the point I'm feel-
ing used. What can.I do?
Nobody's Babysitter in Niceville.
(Name and address withheld on request)
Dear Nobody,
Sometimes our better nature catches us between
guilt and good-girl manners.
You know that the best way to handle things is to be
honest about your feelings with your friend. If you are
not, you will not be friends for much longer.
Sit your friend down and explain to her that if it's not
an emergency, you can't babysit on a moment's notice
anymore. Explain the friendship is starting to feel one-
sided and you have other things to do besides be at her
beck'and call. She might get upset or get her feelings
hurt, but you will have no hope for the friendship, if you
are not honest.
Boundaries are a good thing. Some people have them
naturally, some need us to help set them. If she doesn't
want to be your friend anymore after your talk, she nev-
er really was your friend. Be honest, set some ground
rules and stick to your guns. Last resort, if she breaks
those boundaries, don't answer the door.
Good luck and God bless.
Auntie Em.

MAYOR CARPENTER and family enjoy a day of tea.


Annual Victorian



T'ea a huge success


Greeting the 159 guests
on the porch of the historic
Spires' home on Circle Drive
was Joyce Potter, daugh-
ter of the late Dr. and Mrs.
Ralph Spires. Assisting at
the registry table were Jean
Anderson and Faye Hardy.
This tranquil setting in
DeFuniak Springs was once
again the scene of the Vic-
torian Tea on Feb. 22-24 in
conjunction with the Chau-
tauqua Winter Assembly.
Victorian attire was the
style for Dr. Lynn and El-
len Mayfield, Jim and Carol


Dorsey, Sheila Scott and
Harley Henderson, who es-
corted guests to the formally-
set tables. This home, with
its history, family portraits
and homey atmosphere, al-
lowed guests to step back
in time. Soft music flowed,
Earl Grey tea was poured
from hand-painted tea pots
and palates were tempted
by dainty tea foods served
on fine china. The eye was
drawn to the floral creations
* of yellow roses and St. John's
Wort, presented in a tall an-
tique tea pot.
The annual tea has be-


come a favorite for return-
ing guests of all ages. Even
though the opening day
began with rain, it did not
dampen the spirits. Many
gracious guests made new
friends and visited as they
waited to be seated.
It truly was a joining of
hands and hearts by the Tea
Ladies. Special thanks to
Dr. Mendy Henderson, Dee
Moore and Winnie Yeiser
for their contribution.
Proceeds from the tea will
benefit St. Agatha's restora-
tion fund.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2008

Movie Review


"Vantage Point": Now you see it, but you don't


By BRUCE COLLIER
Pete Travis' techno-action thriller "Vantage Point"
raced into town last week. It's 90 minutes of almost non-
stop action, much of it bluntly violent. Watching this
movie may leave you feeling a bit slapped around. It's an
odd combination a film seemingly tailor-made for short
attention spans, that nevertheless requires constant
focus.
The president of the United States (William Hurt) is
about to speak at an anti-terrorism summit in an outdoor
plaza in Salamanca, Spain. Two shots suddenly drop him,
and after a few moments of bedlam, a bomb detonates
beneath the speakers' platform, killing and injuring a
crowd of bystanders. The event is being filmed, not only
by worldwide television media, but by. American tourist
Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker, standing in the crowd
near the platform. Presidential bodyguard Thomas
Barnes (Dennis Quaid) reviews Lewis' footage, as well as
that taken by news producer Rex Brooks (Sigourney
Weaver). "Oh my God," says Barnes. Fade out.
At this point, the movie turns back the clock some 23
minutes, and re-runs the whole incident, but from a
different viewpoint. We see a little more. Fade out, then
rewind, then we get another person's take on it. Little by
little, details accumulate. That which appeared obvious,
isn't. Joining the cast of characters are Barnes' fellow


bodyguard Kent Taylor (Matthew Fox), Spanish city cop
Enrique (Eduardo Noriega), and a collection of furtive
attendees, each of whom seems to have his own reason for
being in the plaza.
If you have seen the trailer, you know that the man
shot on the platform is not the real president, but a
"double" placed in situations where the president's
security is compromised. The real president is in a
nearby hotel, forced to choose between acting on the
threat (and revealing the switch) or staying undercover
and allowing a retaliatory strike against the terrorists
suspected of the attack. Meantime, the bodyguards are
hotly pursuing suspects, and the chase begins.
"Vantage Point" has one of the longer street-to-street
car chases I have seen of late. Not content with that,
Travis interweaves several subplots. All are equally fast-
paced, and none can be revealed without giving away the
movie. All I can say is, from the president on down to the
hotel desk clerk, a lot of folks in Salamanca are not telling
the truth about themselves.
As for the violence, the film has a bigger body count
than the last act of "Hamlet," but there's no lingering over
it. That would take too much time. Though the subject is
terrorism, little time is spent philosophizing or
pontificating. We are never told exactly who the killers
are working for, or why, possible because that would slow


things down. The closest "Vantage Point" gets to politics is
one character's dying observation that the war on terror is
"never going to end."
If this is anyone's movie, it's Quaid's. Eschewing the
roguish persona of his earlier screen work, he plays Barnes
with middle-aged exhaustion. We are told (and shown) that
Barnes has just returned to active duty, having earlier
taken a bullet for his president. He is focused, but still
skittish and a little gun-shy. His trademark smart-aleck
grin is nowhere to be seen.
Whitaker, last year's Oscar best-actor laureate, has to
run around and look scared a lot. Still, he does a good job
showing an ordinary guy working past his fears to help out
and achieve a measure of heroism. Aside from a scene at
the beginning, Weaver goes home early in this one. Hurt,
one of Hollywood's worst on-screen mumblers (I've seen
him onstage he mumbles there, too), actually speaks
clearly here. The film has an excellent supporting cast,
made up of American, Spanish, Israeli, Latin American
and Arabic character actors, notably Edgar Ramirez, Said
Taghmaoui, Avelet Zurer, and Bruce McGill.
There's plenty of local color it's nice to see a thriller
that isn't set in New York, Paris, or Prague. All the same,
the Salamanca Tourist Development Council has its work
cut out for it.

There will be a benefit for

God is present every-
where. The psalmist, David,
knew the elation of suc-
cess, the shame of sin, the
burden of sorrow, the joy of
forgiveness, and the thrill of
service. He wrote in Psalm
139:7, "Whither shall I go
from Thy Spirit? Or whither
shall I flee from Thy pres-
ence?" There is no hiding
from God. Nothing is hidden
from Him.
The all-seeing eye of God
should help us abstain from
sin. Yet men choose dark-
ness rather than light be-
cause their deeds are evil.
Adam and Eve probably did
not even think of God dis-
covering their sin. Yet God
will bring to light the hidden
things of darkness. He sees
our selfishness, our covet-
ousness, our evil thoughts,
and our unkind and untrue


ginning at 11 a.m. and serve

The all-seeing eye of God
should be a great source of
comfort and strength. Mo-
ses was able to face Pharaoh
with courage only because he
had confidence in the pres-
ence, power, and purpose of
God. The psalmist had faith
in the seeing of God when
He wrote, "Yea, though I
walk through the valley of
the shadow of death, I will
fear no evil: for Thou art
with me."
The all-seeing eye of God
should challenge us to out-
standing and unselfish ser-
vice for Christ. David was
able to go forward to face
a Philistine giant, Goliath,
with five stones. He did not
take five stones because he
thought he would miss. Go-
liath had four brothers, and

Unnoticed.?
Re. Dr. Charles Satterwhite, Pastor
What if you unassumingly went about your daily busi-
ness and one day down the road opened a book from the
bestseller list to find an incident from your life accurately
recounted for all to see? How surprising to you that the au-
thor h4d been observing you and you never realized it.
That's pretty much what happened to a certain widow
that Jesus observed placing her gift of two small copper
coins in the treasury of the temple.
It's a famous incident but she never knew anyone saw her
no doubt until eternity. The bestseller is the Bible and her
story has been told hundreds of thousands of times.
Jesus honors this woman by saying of her "Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in
more than all of them; for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of
her poverty put in all that she had to live on." (Luke 21:3)
What the woman did was truly remarkable. Giving everything she had is the biggest act
of trust I can imagine.
Then she walked out of the temple never knowing that the God she served sat only a few
feet away watching and commenting to his disciples. She may have been poor on earth but
think of her treasures right now in heaven.
Now to YOU. Do you think it is possible that you are going about your daily business un-
observed? Do you suppose yourself to be mainly inconspicuous from anyone important?
Think yourself unnoticed? Think again.


The Sustainer
God is in control, call on him for all your needs
Through him reap the harvest, with Jesus plant the seed
God will supply all your needs and give you more
Believe in Jesus and be blessed by what is in store

Trust in God, in him it is imperative to completely trust
No lip service, He knows your heart, so you must

God, the creator, the sustainer to him it all belongs
Keep that spring in your step and in your heart a praising
song
God loved us so He sent his only son for our sins to die
.Trusting and truly believing in Jesus and to Heaven you
will fly
The earth will fit into the sun about a million times
God loves us more, that is why His love really shines
We do not deserve and are so unworthy of God's love
He continues to bless us and promises Heaven above
The Ten Commandments to Moses, God did give
The rules of life and how we should live
God loves us so and he allows us to live another day

one stone for each. Jesus
tells us that there will come
a day when the good deeds
of the believers will be rec-

God wants to save us

through Jesus Christ. He
has great plans for your life.
Let Him have His way with
you. He knows our need. He
loves us to the extent that
He gave His only Son to die

Rentz selected to FHSAA Hall of Fame for 2008


By PATRICK CASEY
Former Freeport coach
Aubrey Rentz has been se-
lected to join the Florida
High School Athletic Hall of
Fame this April.
Rentz, 70, spent 41 years
as the head boys' and girls'
track and field coach at
Freeport High School before
retiring in 2003. He coached
his girls team to a state title
in 1986 and went undefeat-
ed in regular-season meets
for seven years in the 1980s.
Rentz also coached the boys'
and girls' cross country pro-
grams for 25 years, the girls'
basketball team for 18 years
and the boys' basketball
team for 11 years, winning
a state title in boys basket-
ball in 1968. He started both


the football and softball pro-
grams at Freeport and was
the first head coach for each
program. Rentz was named
Coach of the Year for boys
basketball in 1968 and girls
track and field in 1986. The
Freeport High School gym-
nasium is named for him.
This is the 17th group to
be inducted into the Florida
High School Athletic Hall
of Fame. Founded during
the 1990-91 school year, the
Florida High SchoolAthletic
Hall of Fame'keeps alive the
tradition and spirit of high
school athletics, and each
year honors those persons
who through distinguished
achievement have excelled
in one or more high school
programs sponsored by the


Association and its member
schools. This year's eight in-
ductees bring the number of
deserving individuals who
have been enshrined in the
Florida High School Athlet-
ic Hall of Fame to 119. They
include student-athletes,
coaches, administrators,
contest officials and other
contributors, such as sports
writers, who have raised the
level of awareness of high
school activities through
their efforts, achievements
and dedication. The 2008
Florida High School Ath-
letic Hall of Fame Induction
Ceremony and Awards Ban-
quet will be held April 6 at
the Best Western Gateway
Grand Hotel in Gainesville.
Two separate commit-


tees comprised of active
and retired administra-
tors, coaches, officials and
news media representatives
evaluated the nominations
of the eight individuals se-
lected for induction to the
Florida High School Ath-
letic Hall of Fame this year.
A seven-member screening
committee first reviewed all
nominations received and
determined which nominees
were viable candidates for
induction into the Hall of
Fame. The nominations of
those candidates then were
forwarded to a 16-member
selection committee, which
rated the nomination of
each candidate to determine
the candidates who would
be inducted.


The Florida High School
Athletic Association is the
governing body for inter-
scholastic athletic compe-


tition in Florida. It has a
membership of more than
750 middle and senior high
schools.

sorry. That is the only thing
you could hear coming from
Andy Pettitte, saying that
he had embarrassed himself
and set a terrible example
for himself, his team and
the fans.
Nothing was mentioned
about, Roger Clemmons,
since he and Pettitte had
not spoken in more than a
month, after Pettitte cor-


roborated allegations of
drug use against the seven-
time Cy Young Award win-
ner. Pettitte knows that the
outcome has put a massive
strain on their relationship.
It all came out the first
day that Pettitte entered
spring training in Tampa,
where he was mobbed by
reporters asking him ques-
tions about the Mitchell re-
port that was released on
Dec. 13. The Yankee's pitch-


er took nearly an hour to an-
swer their questions and to
try to do damage control.
He gave his apologies and
then was shuffled inside the
arena to get practice under-
way.
Back in the cold weather
of Madison, WI. baseball
commissioner Bud Selig is
still taking his time review-
ing cases of players accused
of taking performance-en-
hancing drugs outlined in


Marlins get their stadium


By CHUCK HINSON
After years of discus-
sion, money-raising ideas,
city, county and state pleas
and discussions, the Florida
Marlins were finally ap-
proved for a baseball-only
ballpark that they have
fought for for over a decade.
After several years of dis-
cussion by the team own-
ers and the Miami-Dade.
County commissioners, they
voted last Thursday to give
the Florida team their own
stadium. It is a $515 million
retractable-roof stadium
that would open for the 2011
season.
The first vote passed
the county commission 9-3.
About 25 minutes later,
after amending some lan-
guage, the county moved to
re-vote and approved the
new facility and the Base-
ball Stadium Agreement
unanimously. City commis-


sioners approved the BSA
by a 4-1 vote several hours
earlier.
The 37,000-seat facility
will be at the site of the Or-
ange Bowl in Miami's Little
Havana district. The Orange


Bowl Stadium has already
been slated for demolition
later this year.
Other issues and points
of interest concerning po-
lice, fire and security or still
being decided.

Perilloux suspended from Tigers


By CHUCK HINSON

Just when other teams
thought that LSU would
never see a disappointing
football season for several
years to come, the Tigers


got a wake-up call. Start-
ing quarterback Ryan Per-
rilloux, who was taking
the 2007 NCAA National
Championship winner quar-
terback Matt Flynn's place
next season, was suspended


indefinitely for violation of
team ruled.
The suspension, that
came after an inside in-
vestigation, has made him
ineligible to start spring
practice on Feb. 29, accord-


ing to head coach Les Miles.
Miles is still unsure on how
this will affect the national
championship team for the
2008 season.

Perilloux had been wide-


Judy Wong Wins 2008 Women's Bassmaster tour


Judy Wong, of Many,
LA., held off defending WBT
Champion Pam Martin-
Wells by six ounces to win
the 2008 Women's Bassmas-
ter Tour Championship Sat-
urday on South Carolina's
Lake Keowee.
Wong was one of only two
anglers to weigh in a five-
fish limit of bass on each of
the tournament's three days
of competition, compiling a
total weight of 26 pounds, 10
ounces on her way to first-
ever professional champion-
ship.
With unstable weather
patterns during the event,
which brought unseasonably
low air and water tempera-
tures to the area along with


wind and rain, Wong focused
her fishing attention near
the warm-water discharge
area near the Oconee Nu-
clear Station, bringing five
fish that weighed 6 pounds,
5 ounces to the stage on the
final day.

With the win the first
in her WBT career Wong
earned a fully-rigged boat
and motor package, in addi-
tion to $10,000 in first-place
prize money, a prize pack-
age worth $60,000.
"I'm happy to have all
that, but the title means so
much more to me," Wong
said. "The women in this
group, we all have passion.
We come out here and give

ly considered the favorite
to succeed Matt Flynn as
starting quarterback for
the LSU Tigers and return
them back to the "big game"
in January of 2009. At the
time of his recruitment, he
was also the number -one
pick of high school athletes
in the country.

He has been in and out


of trouble and the media. In:
May of 2007, he was cited
for illegally trying to get on
a riverboat casino in Baton.
Rouge by using his older'
brother's driver's license,
but was reinstated in Au-
gust. Then in October, the
week before the Alabama
game, he was barred from
practice for his role in a
nightclub brawl.

Jones hangs up her crown


Devin Jones, Miss De-
Funiak Springs 2007, made
her final appearance as a
hometown ambassador re-
cently at the Walton Head
Start facility. Jones was ac-
companied by Sassy Bogart,
the current Miss Walton
County.
The two youth ambas-
sadors shared favorite chil-
dren's books with the ex-
cited pre-schoolers and even
joined in a one class danced
to exercise music. After
serving juice and nutritious
snacks to all three classes,
Devin and Sassy enjoyed
Sthe company and priceless
wisdom of the three, four,
and five-year-olds. Before
Jones and Bogart left, they
joined in a game of "Ring
Around the Roses" on the
playground.
This is the third year that


the reigning Miss DeFuniak
Springs has made her final
appearance with the stu-
dents and faculty at Head
Start. Devin Jones said she
had received more hugs and
compliments from the stu-
dents at Head Start than
she had ever received in any
one day of her life.
During her year as Miss
DeFuniak Springs, Devin
Jade Jones met all local
elected officials, toured the
Walton Heritage Museum
and DeFuniak Library, vis-
ited the Richardson Peanut
Farm twice and been pres-
ent at numerous civic func-
tions. On a personal level,
she graduated from Walton
High in May 2007 and has
attended Okaloosa Walton
College since then. Her ca-
reer dreams focus on the
broadcast journalism field.

Paxton boys fall




at the buzzer


by PATRICK CASEY
Marquise Richardson's
floating, lateral jumper on
the left side of the key found
nothing but net as time ex-
pired, crushing the dreams
of Paxton fans. At the last
possible second, FAMU
High stole a 63-61 victory
over the Paxton Bobcats in
the Region I Class A boys
basketball final played in
Paxton on Saturday night.
FAMU (19-10) staged a
classic battle with the home
team as they avenged a loss
by their girl's team on the
same floor from a week ear-
lier by earning their 12th
trip to the Final Four in
school history.
The Baby Rattlers did
what an underdog on the
road needs to do. They made
13-of-17 free throws, hit
the boards hard and kept
the home team from build-
ing a lead that would take
FAMU out of their offensive
rhythm.
Yet with all that going
for them, the Rattlers had
to rely on luck to help them
get the victory. A jump-ball
call on an out of bounds play
with .four seconds left gave
FAMU back the basketball,
leading to the final shot by
Richardson.
Paxton (27-3) struggled
with turnovers and had 20
less shots from the floor than
did the Rattlers, but was 16
seconds away from earning.
overtime or a trip to the Fi-
nal Four. Senior Blake Zes-
sin fouled out in the fourth
quarter, further putting a
strain on the offense, only to
watch his teammates rally
to tie the scoie when junior
Zack Vickers tipped in a shot
to tie the game at 61-61.
FAMU led 36-34 at half-
time as Paxton shot 12-of-20
from the floor, but commit-
ted eight turnovers to give
FAMU some easy baskets.
The Baby Rattlers ,took ad-
vantage of their trips to the
free throw line by hitting
9-of-ll shots, a remarkable
shooting percentage for a
team averaging only 59 per-
cent from the free throw line
during the year.
The nip-and-tuck battle
did not see either team hold
a lead of more than four
points in the second half.
Both teams battled foul
trouble, though Paxton suf-
fered more as point guard
Chaze Russell and Zessin
were limited in the second
half.
Zack Vickers, an Area 5
player of the year candidate,
scored 20 points and battled
double and triple teaming in


Sthe low post to lead Bobcat
scorers. Zessin finished with
10 points and fouled out in
the fourth quarter in his fi-
nal game as one of three se-
niors on the team.
FAMU's experience, and a
squad that had eight seniors
on the roster, kept them in
the game as they played
in front of a hostile Paxton
crowd that may have seen
the most people, and auto-
mobiles in the parking lot,
that the campus has ever
hosted at one time in school
history.
SUnfortunately, the game
left a bad taste in the collec-
tive mouths of the local fans
as Richardson's shot ended
the Bobcats' hopes of a Final
Four trip to Lakeland.
"You hate to see it end
like that," Coach Jeff Brad-
ley said after the game. "We
were hoping to get the turn-
over off the out-of-bounds
play, but the arrow was not
in our favor when the of-
ficials couldn't decide who
the ball went off of out of
bounds. We hurt ourselves
by making only 17-of-31 free
throws tonight and some of
the turnovers were very
costly. It was a great game,
it just didn't end the way we
wanted. We had a great run
and are blessed with such a
supporting community and
family."
FAMU was led by center
Alex Williams, who scored
16 points. Jerrod McGee
scored 14 points and Rich-
ardson added 12 points.
Paxton got to the Re-
gion final after knocking off
Graceville 45-40 in the sec-
ond round.
Graceville held the ball
for parts of the first half, but
Paxton managed a 15-6 lead
at halftime as the Bobcats
took advantage of Graceville
turnovers to make several
key baskets in the first half.
Graceville picked up the
tempo in the third quarter,
and actually took a 22-21
lead midway through the
period, only to see Paxton
finish strong as the Bobcats
superior size allowed them.
to grab key rebounds in ral-
lying in the final quarter of
play.
Zack Vickers led the way
with 13 points while Shaq
Jackson had 11 points.
Graceville hit nine
3-points shots to stay close,
but had only one player in
double figures as they ended
the year with a 13-13 re-
cord.
Game Notes: The Pax-
ton boys basketball team is
13-11 in playoff games in


24 contests. Paxton is the
third team from the Area 5
to reach the Region champi-
onship in the last four sea-
sons. Unfortunately, Ponce
de Leon, Walton and Paxton
have all failed to win the Re-
gion title and advance to the
Final Four in Lakeland.
Paxton Head Coach Jeff
Bradley ended his 10th sea-
son with the Bobcats with a
record of 192-110. Paxton's
boys were the last Walton
County boys squad to go
to the Final Four in 1974,
where they again lost to
eventual state champion
FAMU 58-43 in the Class A
state semi-final. Paxton is
0-3 versus FAMU High in
the state playoffs. Sev-
eral factors did not go the
Bobcats' way in the final:
they were out-rebounded,
several of their top players
were in foul trouble in the
second half, they missed
14 free throws and the al-
ternating possession arrow
was pointing FAMU's way
when the officials could not
decide who the ball went out
of bounds off of with four
seconds left in the game.
FAMU has won six boys'
state championships in bas-
ketball, the last coming in
Class 2A in 1997 and has
a 14-5 record at the Final
Four.

Paxton girls fall


in Lakeland


By PATRICK CASEY
Lake Worth Trinity
Christian Academy pound-
ed the Paxton Lady Bobcats
on the boards and outscored
the Bobcats in all but the
fourth quarter, defeating the
Panhandle school 44-30 in a
Class A state semi-final.
Point guard 'Jamierra
Faulkner scored 20 points
and. the Warriors grabbed
32 offensive rebounds in
racing to a 23-13 halftime
lead. The Warriors held the
ball at times during the first
half, trying to lure the Bob-
cats out of their staunch de-
fense once they had built a
lead.

Paxton struggled to score
as they hit only 13-of-45
shots during the game and
made only 4-of-8 free throws.
Erin Walker led the Bobcats
in scoring with nine points.
The Warriors, who had
only one senior and no ju-
niors on the roster, did not
light up the scoreboard from
the floor, but did get enough
second and third chances
to build a 35-19 lead after
three quarters of play.
The two teams did not
score well from long dis-


tance and the Warriors
made the only 3-point shot
of the game. That wasn't
a problem for the athletic
team from Lake Worth since
they battled endlessly on
the boards, holding a 60-27
rebounding advantage in
the 32 minutes of play.
Game Notes: Trin-
ity Christian won the state
championship on Friday
with a 51-44 victory over
Sarasota Christian. The
Warriors claimed their first
girls' basketball title with
the victory, while Paxton
had their 14-game winning
streak snapped. Paxton is
30-12 all-time in state play-
off competition in girls bas-
ketball. Herb Haddock end-
ed his 11th season as head
coach and has a 228-75 re-
cord while at the school. The
loss was Paxton's first at
the state tournament after
compiling an 8-0 record in
four previous trips. Maryl-
lyn Gilbert scored six points
in her final game at Paxton,
totaling 1,192 in her career.
Senior Vikki Pepper had
eight points and nine re-
bounds while senior Olivia
Adams was held out of play
due to injury.

School board holds meeting in south Walton


By ALICIA LEONARD
On Feb. 19, for the first
time in six years, the Wal-
ton County School Board
convened in the media cen-
ter at South Walton High
School.
Kevin Boyle, director of
the contested play Blithe
Spirt, attempted to give
the board a poster and cash
vouchers to attend the all-
student production being
hosted by Seaside Reper-
tory Theatre. Boyle thanked
the board for not banning
the material from the me-
dia center during the hotly-
debated play controversy.
Bolye placed the items on
the Board's conference ta-
ble without receiving any
response from the Board
members, except stares.
The board moved onto the
selection of an architectural
firm for a proposed middle
school in south Walton. The


firm of Elliott, Marshall,
Innes, P.A. gave a proposed
budget of $1.15 million for
the planning of the proposed
$17.4 million facility.
Plans included for the
school are classrooms and
common areas that will hold
up to 850 students and staff
members at full capacity.
Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association representa-
tive Bob Hudson questioned
the size of the proposed
facility, citing current eco-
nomic climates and dwin-
dling population counts for
the area. Hudson's concerns
about overbuilding drew a
response. from Board mem-
bers and staff alike. Board
member Mark Davis in-
formed the attendees that
future school's were always
planned to be larger or "over-
built." at their time of con-
ception due to the fact that if
they built for current capac-
ity, they would soon be too


small. Davis cited from past
indications in enrollment
numbers. Wayne Miller,
administrations and opera-.
tion supervisor, concurred,
"Our elementary schools are
already overcrowded." Hud-
son responded saying, "I'm
just concerned. We need to
get it right. That's all."
The architectural firm
said 38 percent of the final
design came directly from an
earlier, existing design plan
and offered a discount of 10
percent discount on that
38 percent of the design.
Davis moved to accept the
proposal from the firm, say-
ing, "We are not going to get
a better deal in the private
sector." Board member Bill
Laird agreed and expressed
the need to lock in prices
now on building materi-
als, saying, "I don't think
the cost of materials are
going down anytime soon.
We could potentially save


a lot of money by locking in
our plans now." The motion
passed 5-0 with Superin-
tendent Carlene Anderson
informing Board members
she would look into the type
of financing needed, return
with their options and get
the plans on track as soon
as possible. The school is es-
timated to open within the
next two to three years.
Superintendent Ander-
son submitted the results
from the annual audit of
each school's internal ac-
counts. Anderson told the
board that she was "very
pleased with the number of
schools that had no findings,
since a very large number
of sampling from different
schools were used in the au-
dit and findings were minor
for the few that did show
up. It's an excellent audit."
Board member Mark Da-
vis agreed, suggesting that
notice be sent to the book-


keepers of the schools that
did have minor findings, to
stay on top of the accounts
and correct any deficiencies
that were pointed out in the
audits.
An long-standing, un-
wanted sliver .of property
was discussed. The land
is located in Gaskin and
ownership of the parcel
has been debated over the
last 50 years. Some believe
the property belongs to the
school district, while oth-
ers believe it belongs to
the Gaskin First Baptist
Church. The board agreed
that the small plot could
only be used for parking or
as a drainage ditch. They
agreed, 5-0, to officially deed
the property to the church
because they believe the two
small strips, with their odd
shape and location, would
be of no value to the school

Scenic

Highway
CR-30A, an 18-mile road
which runs parallel to the
coastline through a major
portion of Walton County,
was officially designated a
Florida Scenic Highway by
the Scenic Highway Advi-
sory Committee Wednes-
day, February 20, in Tal-
lahassee. This designation
includes another 10.5 miles
of connector roads which
are CR-83 (Blue Mountain),
CR-283 (Grayton Road), and
CR-395 (Seagrove Eden
Road). The vote by the com-
mittee was unanimous.
"This designation is the
culmination of about 10
years of work started by
Commissioner Van Ness
Butler who recognized the
benefits that would accrue
from this," said District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows. "We are now eligible to
apply for grant funding for
projects we have identified
in the application. Some of
these include plans to ad-
dress storm water manage-
ment, landscaping, traffic
safety, signage, parking,
preservation, coastal dune
lake protection, and other
initiatives that promote the
intrinsic resources found on
30A and connector roads. I
was glad to see this designa-
tion finally come to fruition
and appreciate all the work
that was done by citizens,
elected officials, and county
staff over the years."
According to the Florida
Department of Transporta-

awareness of the state's

SWCMCD concerned



over drainage issues


By JEFFREY POWELL
"If we do not get some re-
lief with this drainage prob-
lem we could be faced with a
real
public health issue," said
South Walton County Mos-
quito Control District (SW-
CMCD) Commissioner John
Magee.
Fellow Commissioner Jim
Crawford and SWCMCD Di-
rector Steve Sickerman con-
curred with Magee's com-
ments during their Feb. 19
regular board meeting.
Responding to citizen


concerns about standing
water adjacent to Churchill
Bayou Road and 13th Street
in Santa Rosa Beach, the
commissioners recently in-
spected the area to draw
their own conclusions con-
cerning the complaints.
"The bottom line is we
used to have a ditch here
that worked," said Craw-
ford. "The county assured us
this would not happen."
Crawford contends that a'
bike path constructed next
to Churchill Bayou Road in
recent years has had a detri-
mental effect on a drainage


grid that has been in place
for many years.
"The bike path was con-
structed during the drought
period,". Crawford said.
"Now we are having a rainy
spell and the area does not
drain. This is a big mistake,
private property is being
flooded."
The commissioners also
suggested that there was
not enough cooperation be-
tween the county and the
SWCMCD during the plan-
ning and construction of the
bike path. Walton County


Senior Planner Jason Bryan
agrees that there could be
better intergovernmental
communications between
the two agencies but points
out that the SWCMCD had
every opportunity to partici-
pate in the planning stages
of the project.
"They are members of
the Technical Review Com-
mittee and as such have
the ability to review all our
plans," Bryan asserted. "Mr.
Sickerman has contacted
our office and we will re-
main in a dialogue with his
organization."

Rep Theatre to present Outdoor Film Series in 2008


The Seaside Repertory
Theatre is expanding its
mission and programming
in 2008 to include the pre-
sentation of feature films.
Beginning March 16, The
Rep will present a feature
film on a big screen each
Sunday evening on the Sea-
side Lyceum green. The
films presented will be criti-
cally acclaimed recent re-
leases, well-known favorites
from years past, and other
limited release films hereto-
fore unavailable to panhan-


dle audiences. Admission is
set at only $5, and prepara-
tions are being made to offer
a full bar along with tradi-
tional popcorn and candy
fare. Tickets will be sold at
the door.
"We want to the setting to
evoke the feel of the drive-
in movies of old," says Rep
Executive Director Craige
Hoover, "but also capture
the communal, shared ex-
perience of movie going that
has brought people indoors
over the years."


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


year's surprise hits "Talk To
Me, Gone Baby Gone," and
"Sicko." each of which have
been awarded much critical
acclaim, but were released
only in metropolitan areas.
Hoover says the criteria for
movie selection is an or-
ganic one, "We will have the
movies planned out about a
month in advance, but we,
intend to listen to the au-
Sdience about what should
come next."
In addition to the Sun-
day movies, the Rep has


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


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

Walton School District receives


contribution from Prominence


Tommy Henry, developer
of the Town of Prominence
in Southeastern Walton
County, presented Walton
County School Superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson with
a $228,000 check at the reg-
ular School Board meeting
on Nov. 5, 2007.
Henry's contribution will
go toward the construction


of a new Emerald Coast
Middle School on a newly
acquired forty-acre tract
near Point Washington. The
school is being built to alle-
viate overcrowding at South
Walton's existing elemen-
tary and middle schools.
Prominence is located
on CR- 30A in Southeast-
ern Walton County, just six


miles southeast of the new
middle school. The develop-
ment is designed in accor-
dance with new urbanist
principles, with a comple-
mentary mixture of residen-
tial, commercial, and civic
uses, all within walking dis-
tance. When it is completed,
Prominence will include 650
homes; 120 hotel rooms;


200,000 square feet of com-
mercial space; and a 13,000
square-foot civic building.
"I appreciate Mr. Hen-
ry's efforts to make Wal-
ton *County a better place
to live, as he is expressing
through the quality of his
development and through
his generosity to the School
District," said Anderson.

On Thursday, Jan.31, stu-
dents from Ms. Miller's third
grade at Butler Elementary
School went on a field trip
to DeFuniak Springs, FL. to
see the Hall of President's
booth that they had made
on America's third presi-
dent, Thomas Jefferson.
The eight and nine-year-
old students worked for sev-
eral weeks in groups to learn
about the talented Renais-
sance president. They divid-
ed into groups to research
his life as a leader, architect,
scientist, and inventor. The
class was assisted by the art
teacher, Constance Rogers
and volunteer, Dr. Tommy
Fairweather, and class par-


ents and friends.
The -students learned so
much about Thomas Jeffer-
son, that they were very in-
terested in seeing.the other
presidential booths.
After seeing the Hall of
Presidents, the students
took a tour around Lake
DeFuniak. After lunch they
went to the DeFuniak Li-
brary, then down to the
Civil War enactment, and
finally to see the art work at
the Chautauqua Building.
Every was so kind and help-
ful to the children.
The class wore their black
tri-corn hats and had a good
time learning and visiting
in the Walton County seat.

.WALfTxN CouNJfY SNIWBID NEWS


By NANCY GEHRKE

Someone just passed on a piece of advice to share with
everyone and it does bear repeating. As we consider our
return trip to the ice palace, our 'other' home north of the
Mason/Dixon, she strongly urged that everyone do a stop
in their vehicle every two hours to do a bit of a stretch, to
walk around, and to get energized for the next two hours.
Someone in their car didn't do that, preferring to pound the
pavement hour after hour after hour. And, lo and behold,
what was the resulting factor of that behavior? A blood clot
in the leg. Let's think about that and maybe change our
habits for the good of our health.
Joe Raga, volunteer chairman of the Thursday golf
league at the Golf Garden shares the results of the Spe-,
cial Games of February 7. In the women's division, clos-
est to the pin on No. 1 Anne Thomson; on No. 4 Lee
McLaughlin; on No. 6 Gerry Kraus; longest putt on No.
9 Peggy Casper. In the men's division, closest to the pin
on No. 5 Dan Rankin; also on No. 5 Ken LeMire; on No.
7 Karl Rydolph; longest putt on No. 2 Dick Powell. Also,
congratulations are due to Ken Lemire for his hole in one
on No. 5. I don't have the dates for other holes-in-one, but
here are a couple of others: Bob Lindsay and Russ Tarbell.
Congratulations, one and all.
There's more golf news, dates, opportunities, and dis-
counts that can be accessed on our web site: www.walton-
countysnowbirds.com.
Euchre winners for the week of February 12 in the
women's division were: Sandy Richter first; Mary Anne
Grenier second; Judy Colberg and Ronnie McNeil tied
for third. In the men's division, Ron Wilson took first place
while Ves Lynch, Ken Shorter, and Bob Collins shared sec-
ond place honors.

The Child Advocate

By JULIE HURST
Children's Advocacy Center

It's been about two months since the Center's last col-
umn. Somehow, Christmas and the New Year passed by so
quickly and now it's the end of February.
For those who may be reading this column for the first
time, the Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center is a
not-for-profit agency serving child victims of physical and
sexual abuse in Walton and Okaloosa counties. The Center
provides a child-friendly environment where partiier agen-
cies, including the Department of Children and Families,
law enforcement, the CAC Child Protecti6n Team, and the
Office of State Attorney join together. They join togeth-
er to both protect and treat child-abuse victims and their
families, while holding those who perpetrate on children
Accountable for their-actions:-
There is not a day that goes by when there isn't a story
of a child being sexually abused by an adult. Today alone,
,there were two stories. These children that we read about
locally, come to the Children's Advocacy Center to be in-
terviewed. They also come to the Center for medical exams
by the Child Protection Team. They come to the Center for
counseling to begin to restore their lives by overcoming the
trauma associated with abuse.
The Center and its agency partners tracked more than
1,500 cases of child physical and sexual abuse in Walton
and Okaloosa counties. The Center and its agency partners
collectively provided services to more than 350 children last
year and the services include mental health counseling,
community referrals, resources for client needs.
It is important for folks to know the prevalence of child
physical and sexual abuse in the community and, most im-
portantly, to realize it's a community-owned problem and
the community must be a part of the solution.
Each and every person has the ability to be a part of
the solution by teaming up with the Center and its agency
partners. School classes, churches, civic organizations and
individuals can all join in. April is National Child Abuse
Prevention Month. Anyone can begin to be a part of the so-
lution I offer this challenge to do something for the Center
during the month of April. It could be doing a small fund-
raiser like a bake sale or garage sale or it could be holding a
"diaper drive." It could be making a donation or volunteer-
ing time. All efforts will help the Center bring awareness
about child abuse prevention and the Center's work to pro-
tect and treat child abuse victims in our community. Give
the Center a call at 833-9237, ext. 223.
In closing, one of the most important things any of us can
do is, if you know or suspect child abuse, call the Florida
Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-96-ABUSE. The calls are con-
fidential. That call may just be the one to rescue an abused
child. One call might just save a childhood or even save a
life.

bird Singers providing the entertainment. There will be
a change of guard in the leadership and a short business

the general meeting; thanks to Jan Young and her artist
workshop for their display at the last general meeting; to Al
Francis for the evening of dancing and dining at the Lucky
Snapper and to Shirley Northcross and Pat Gervais for giv-
ing new meaning to a "ladies luncheon."

THE FIRST DISTRICT Court of Appeal in Tallahassee.


Appeals court to hear


Driftwood case


By DOTTY NIST

Representatives of the
Greater Driftwood Estates
Homeowners Association
will have their say in ap-
peals court in Tallahassee.
Their case involves the
closing of an access road to
the Mack Bayou-area subdi-
vision, which currently and
for many years has had only
one entrance/exit road. That
single access is subject to
flooding during storm events
and heavy rains.
On May 10, 1988, accord-
ing to Walton County Com-
mission records, the subdivi-
sion's alternate access road,
then known as Driftwood
Drive, was officially aban-
doned; it was subsequently
closed off.


In 2006, the homeowners
petitioned in Walton County
Circuit Court for a writ of
mandamus, with the goal
of compelling the county to
hold a public hearing to de-
termine if Florida Statutes
were followed in connection
with the road abandonment
and closing those many
years ago.
In October 2007, Wal-
ton County Circuit Judge
W. Howard LaPorte denied
the homeowners' petition.
In November 2007, LaPorte
also denied their request for
a rehearing in circuit court.
In Dec. 2007 the hom-
eowners filed with the First
District Court of Appeal in
Tallahassee a motion for ap-
peal of LaPorte's denial of
their writ of mandamus.


In January 2008 the ap-
peals court raised questions
as to whether the appel-
lants' motion for rehearing
had been made within the
time period required by law.
In a "show cause order,"
they were asked to present
evidence that their appeal
was not "untimely," or else
face dismissal of their case
with no further opportunity
to be heard.0

After a response by at-
torney Layne Smith on be-
half of the homeowners, the
show cause order was dis-
charged, and the appeal of
the Judge LaPorte's October
2007 decision is to proceed
in appeals court. As of press
time, no date has been set
for hearing of the appeal.


NTINUED FROM FRONT


be given the ability to re-
ceive 90 days paid leave due
to family emergencies after
their probationary period
of employment. He said the
motion was spurred by con-
cerns over the Family Leave
Medical Act (FLMA). Barn-
hill noted that the FLMA
only kicks in after one year
of service and that employ-
ees and their families could
be left in limbo between
the time their probationary
status was up and the end
of their first year of employ-
ment. Anderson told the
board that they could not
circumvent federal law and,
in her.opinion the district al-
ready had appropriate leave
policy in place for family
emergencies. The board did
not take action on the issue.
The board was up for
comments next and Davis
raised the issue of fundrais-
ing. Davis recalled for the
board being asked at sev-
eral different times and lo-
cations recently to donate to
different school fundraising
programs that are often in-
cluded in budgets. He said,
"I've gotten calls from par-
ents saying their kids are
coming home and need to
raise money for uniforms
and such. Are we remind-
ing our principals that this
is not suppose to be happen-
ing?" Anderson said those
requests should be going to
their district office. March is
the target date for the new
fundraising policy for the
district.
Board member Mildred
Wilkerson commented to
Anderson about the recent
approval by the state to in-
clude the term 'evolution'
in the current curriculum.
Wilkerson said, "You know
Walton County people are
very religious and they don't
like that." Anderson re-
sponded, "This is only add-
ing the word evolution to the
term scientific theory that
is already included in the
Sunshine State Standards."
Wilkerson responded, "Well,
I guess we're going to have
to buy new books."

cultural scene and
has recaptured the
true spirit of the


historic
Chautauq
Assembly.

ua


The opening ceremonies
last Thursday morning at
the United Methodist
Church had Mayor Harold
Carpenter and assembly
president Ann Robinson
welcoming guests to the
assembly. The Chautauqua
Choir also sang an original
number by volunteer
chairman Marie Hinson.
The morning devotion
was given, and with three
taps of the gavel, the
weekend events began.
Shuttle buses carried
guests Thursday and
Friday, back and forth from
the Hall of Brotherhood to
the DeFuniak Springs
Community Center, where
numerous exhibits and
displays were presented.
The Chautauqua Quilters,
the Walton County Art
League and the Walton
County Porcelain Society,
filled all three halls at the
center.
From photographs and oil
paintings, to handmade
exquisite quilts and tea
sets, every type of art could
be found in the community
center exhibit halls..
Back at the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood,
environmental issues were
what it was all about in the
top floor of the building.
Exhibitors from the
Walton County Heritage
Board, the Washington
County Historical &
Preservation Board, the
Walton County Genealogy
Society, the Walton County
Museum, an American
Indian tribe exhibits, Eden
State Gardens exhibit, the
City of Fort Walton Beach
Heritage Museum, the
Baker Block Museum and
many others informed,
educated, gave
demonstrations and


explained the various
aspects of their society or
organization.
Throughout the weekend,
the Chautauqua Cafe, the
bookstore and other places
remained open for business,
as well as tea time at the
Victorian Tea. Despite the
weather on Friday, the
weekend crowd was in full
swing.
On Thursday and Friday
night, the Florida
Chautauqua Theatre came
alive with various
activities. Thursday
evenings Florida
Chautauqua Film Festival
premier hi t the stage.
Despite off and on
showers, nearly 70 people
were adorned in black tie
and evening dresses as they
entered the building, after
passing by the two classic
cars in front of the theater.
The Frank Capra classic "It
Happened One -Night" hit
the screen to an audience
that was taken back to days
:gone-by,

The film festival
continued on Friday and
Saturday with both days
presenting classic movie
matinees.
Friday once again hosted
a multitude of presenters,
exhibits, art shows and
keynote speakers that
spoke on the environment,
government, politics, art,
photography and other
points of interest.
Throughout the day,
walking tours of the
historical downtown areas,
the art, porcelain and quilt
groups at the community
center and bus trips to
farms and other historical
sites continued throughout
the weekend.
The day concluded with
the Chautauqua Radio
Companion Show. It was an
evening filled with laughs,
music by Dread Clampitt
and Matt Miller, skits
written by.Chuck and Carol
Puckett, and performed by
various local actors.
From satires about the
government, modern-day
events and commercials, to
history lessons and music
from the golden-age of
radio, it was all part of a
show that pulled in more
than 100 people into the
theater.
At daybreak on Saturday
morning, the sun finally
broke through and the 5K
racers hit the pavement.

in and out of the buildings
that were filled with
artwork, presenters,
educational programs on
history, genealogy,
environmental lectures and
exhibits and a host of other
demonstrations and expos
that were set-up
throughout the weekend.
After lunch at the
Chautauqua Bistro or
dinner at the pasta-supper
hosted by the DFS.
Women's Club, and the
Katie Ott concert, it was off
to the final night
performance for the
weekend with Bill Oberst,
Jr. at the Chautauqua
Theatre. His portrayal of
the late Lewis Grizzard
brought the house down
and brought up points of
interest that -shaped the
writer's illustrious career.
On Sunday, another day
of brilliant sunshine, the
afternoon was all -about
being outside. More than a
dozen porch parties
entertained, educated and
intrigued attendees as they
strolled around Lake
DeFuniak.
From folk songs and
bagpipes, to choirs and
ensembles, the lakeyard
echoed the sounds of music.
Throughout the day, traffic
moved slowly around Circle
Drive as many stopped to
have tea* at the Afternoon
Tea Serenade, saw pottery
being made, learned about
antique toys and hand-
made instruments,
experienced "Grit &
Grace," and got a chance to
discover the history of the
area's Indian nation.
At the conclusion of a the
afternoon, the Panama
City Drum and Bagpipe
Corp escorted all of those
around the lake, into the
United Methodist Church
for closing ceremonies.
President Ann Robinson
concluded an exciting and
overwhelming weekend of
events that took place
during the inaugural
Chautauqua Winter
Assembly, and announced
next year's date with a
smile on her face and a
gleam in her eye that
reflected the excitement
and expectation of the 2009
assembly.


PAINTERS, CRAFTERS AND PORCELAIN MAKERS, all packed the DeFuniak
Community Center to display thier works of art. It was all part of the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly that took over the city this past weekend.

Coastal Dune Lake Advi-
sory, the Florida Depart-:
ment of Transportation
and government officials,
will oversee scenic highway
beautification and complete
the goals set forth in the
CMP. Public meetings will
be planned by The Friends

ing citizens who have busi-
nesses or homes along the
scenic corridor to attend and
complete the CMP. Anyone
wishing to become involved
in The Friends of SCenic 30A

Helpful info about


your cell phone


5 Things you never knew your cell

phone could do


For all the folks with
cell phones. (This should
be printed and kept in
your car, purse, and wal-
let. Good information to
have with you.)

There are a few things
that can be done in times
of grave emergencies.
Your mobile phone can
actually be a life saver
or an emergency tool for
survival. Check out the
things that you can do
with it:

FIRST
Emergency
The Emergency Num-
ber worldwide for Mo-
bile is 112. If you find
Yourself out of the cover-
age area of your mobile
network and there is an
Emergency, dial 112 and
the mobile will search
any existing network to
Establish the emergency
number for you, and in-
terestingly, this number
112 can be dialed even if
the keypad is locked. Try
it out.

SECOND
Have you locked your
keys in the car? Does
your car have remote
keyless entry? This may
come in handy someday.
Good reason to own a cell
phone: If you lock your
keys in the car and the
spare keys are at home,
call someone at home on
their cell phone from your
cell phone. Hold your cell
phone about a foot from
your car door and have
the person at your home
press the unlock
button, holding it near
the mobile phone on their
end. Your car will unlock.
Saves someone from hav-
ing to drive your keys to
you. Distance is no ob-
ject. You could be hun-
dreds of miles away, and
if you can reach someone
who has the other "re-
mote" for your car, you
can unlock the doors (or
the trunk).
Editor's Note: It works
fine! We tried it out and
it unlocked. Our car over


a cell phone!"

THIRD
Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell battery
is very low. To activate,
press .the keys *3370#..
Your cell phone will re-
start with this reserve
and the instrument will
show a 50 percent in-
crease in battery. This
reserve will get charged
when you charge your cell
phone next time.

FOURTH
How to disable a STO-
LEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile
phone's serial number,
key in the following Dig-
its on your phone: *#06#.
A 15-digit code will ap-
pear on the screen. This
number is unique to your
handset. Write it down
and keep it somewhere
safe.
When your phone gets
stolen, you can phone
your service provider and
give them this code. They
will then be able to block
your handset so even. if
the thief changes the SIM
card, your phone will be
totally useless. You prob-
ably won't get your phone
back, but at least you
know that whoever stole
it can't use/sell it either.
If everybody does this,
there would be no point
in people stealing mobile
phones.
And Finally....
FIFTH
Free Directory Service for
Cells
Cell phone compa-
nies are charging us $1
to $1.75 or more for 411
information calls when
they don't have to. Most
of us do not carry a tele-'
phone directory in our
vehicle, which makes this
situation even more of a
problem. To use the 411
information option, sim-
ply dial: (800)FREE411,
or (800) 373-3411 with-
out incurring any charge
at all. Program this into
your cell phone now.
