Johnson responds



to detractors


SHERIFF RALPH JOHNSONgranted the Herald an ex-
clusive interview to discuss the controversy surrounding the
handling of his annual budget.


By ALICIA LEONARD
"It is what it is, but main-
ly, it's politics," said Sheriff
Ralph Johnson. So began
Sheriff Johnson when re-
sponding to criticism regard-
ing his absence at a public
hearing held by the Walton
County Commission. After
many months of intense me-
'dia, government and public
scrutiny, Johnson decided to
speak out about the contro-
versy surrounding his ad-
ministration in an exclusive
interview with the Herald.
The latest dust-up sur-
rounding Johnson and the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice (WCSO) came to a head
during the Walton Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting on the after-


noon of Feb. 27. The BCC
voted unanimously to not
return $311,431 in funds
from last year's WCSO bud-
get to pay for an upgrade to
the sheriffs 911 system that
Johnson feels is needed.
"It's state and federal
requirement standards for
public safety. The system
has to have the cell-phone
capability to locate cell-
phone calls. It's all about
public safety. The commis-
sion is required to produce
or supply the equipment.
Last summer, I was told by
Mr. (Bill) Imfeld, and talk-
ed to other commissioners,
that I had it in my budget
and to buy it, and so, I did.
Just that simple and now
they have chosen to take the


money. You know, we had
to roll it over because of ac-
counting procedures and,
for whatever reason, which
has to be political, they put
politics over public safety."
Interim County Attorney
Mike Burke stated at the
Feb. 27 BCC meeting that
Johnson had been within
his legal boundaries to pur-
chase the system without
BCC approval.
Johnson said he doesn't
know if he will have enough
to cover the system from
any surplus left over from
this year's budget. "You
don't know what you're go-
ing to have till the end of the
budget year. It's according

DFS City Clerk for $12 a day?



Council laments lack of candidates


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Spring's
City Clerk position has been
vacant since Dan Bodiford
fiiiished his term in:2005.
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council decided to put
the question to voters as to
whether the position should
be an elected or appointed
position. The voters spoke
and decided it should be
kept an elected position two
years ago. There is only one
problem. What can be done
with an office that no one
will run to hold?
Since no one ran for the
position during the last elec-
tion, the job duties have been
spread out among staff.
Kim Kirby, city manager,
said "The responsibilities of
a municipal city clerk have
been distributed among
several of our staff over the


Tony Cornman
announces
candidacy for
sheriff's race

Tony Cornman an-
nounced his candidacy,and
has pre-qualified for the
sheriffs race. Cornman was
born and raised in Walton
County (DeFuniak Springs)
and is the son of Roy and
Bonnie Cornman. Cornman
is married to; Joni Bates
Cornman also born and
raised in Walton County
(Freeport). They have one
son, Jonathon, who will be
graduating from Gulf Coast
Community College in the
summer of this year.'
Cornman graduated from
Walton Sr. High School and
attended Okaloosa Walton
College. He has also taken
thousands of hours of ad-
ditional training in the law
enforcement field including
management and supervi-
sion, organized crime, un-
dercover operations, nar-
cotic investigations, law
enforcement instructor and
the incident command sys-
tem just to name a few.
Cornman has always had
an aspiration to be Sheriff of
Walton County, even back
when he began his law en-


years. For example, my ad-
ministrative assistance pre-
pares the agenda and codi-
fies the ordinances; our city
- attorney prepares many of
our ordinances and resolu-
tions and also helps to main-
tain rules of order in our
meetings. If the position of
city clerk were an appointed
position, this person would
assume many of these and
other responsibilities, such
as overseeing our elections,
custodian of our records."
Vanessa Mitchell is spe-
cial projects coordinator
and deputy city clerk. Kirby
.said, "She is compensated
for these additional duties,
which requires additional
overtime ranging from sev-
en to 14 hours a month, and
sometime more, depending
on the number of meeting
and workshops we have
scheduled."

forcement career at the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) over 25 years ago.
In 1982 he joined the WCSO
and continued working there
until 1988. Cornman is cur-
rently a lieutenant with the
Division of Alcoholic Bever-
ages and Tobacco assigned
to the Panama City Beach
district office. Cornman is
the district office supervi-
sor, managing personnel,
law enforcement operations,
administrative operations
as well as over 1,900 licens-
es in a seven-county area
including Walton. During

The person would cover
many of the duties that
are being covered by staff.
"One example is the recod-
ing and keeping of all min-
utes for all council meetings
and workshops. You must
have accurate minutes that
are clear and concise," said
Kirby. "You want the min-
utes to provide enough in-
formation so that someone
reviewing them 20-30 years
from now would have a clear
understanding of the discus-
sions and actions by previ-
ous councils."
What does the job pay?
Kirby replied, "Ordinance
No. 533 outlines the cur-
rent city clerk responsibili-
ties. There are no specified
hours, duties are outlined in
the ordinance, and the pay is
set by the City Council. The
most recently paid clerks
were paid $60 per week."


Wilkerson for
Walton County
School Board,
District 1
Mildred T. Wilkerson has
qualified for re-election to
the Walton County School
Board, District 1. "I want
to thank all of you for your
past support and hope you
will consider me again," she
said.
"After teaching science
for 33 years, I retired from
Walton Middle School in
1994 but have continued
to be very active in various
clubs and organizations. I
have served as president of
the Walton County Retired
Educator Association three
times, been the school board
representative on the coun-
ty Value Adjustment Board
for four terms, and in 2006,
was appointed by Governor
Bush to the Florida Science
Textbook Adoption Commit-
tee, grades 9-12.
"My three adult children
are graduates of Walton
High School and the Uni-
versity of Florida. All three
have gone on to earn ad-
vanced degrees. I was dedi-
cated to their education and
I am equally committed to
your children's education,"


With an average of 20
business days per month,
that's $12 per day. It is un-
likely that anyone with the
skills to handle all the du-
ties would be willing to work
for $240 a month, which
may account for why no one
has been anxious to seek
the position. In fact, anyone
possessing all the requisite
skills would likely have to
be paid significantly more
than even the current staff
member is receiving, includ-
ing overtime.
Kirby .said one issue
might be due to a rumor
circulating that someone
would have to run against
the city's chief financial di-
rector, Sara Bowers. Kirby
said, "I am told that the
public may think that the
clerk position is referring to
Sara, and nobody wants to
'vote against her.' When in


MILDRED T. WILKERSON


she said.
"During my tenure on
the Walton County School
Board, I have served as
chairman and vice-chair-
man. I have also brought
several important qualities
to the board: experience,
knowledge, wisdom, respect,
proper attitude, and belief
in the importance of educa-
tion."
Wilkerson noted, "Wal-
ton County is growing. We
see this in the new gymna-
siums at Paxton and Bay
Elementary. Three new
schools are being built to ac-

actuality, her position and
duties are totally separate
from the clerk and will
continue to be." The finance
director became a separate
entity from the clerk posi-
tion in 1987.
The only other require-
ments for a person to run
for city clerk is they must be
a resident and qualify with
the Walton County Supervi-
sor of Elections. If the pub-
lic wants an elected clerk
they will have the chance to
reconfirm that during this
year's city elections. If no
one runs for the office, the
duties would continue to be
handled in-house, as is cur-
rently being done. If the ma-
jority of voters want an ap-
pointed clerk, then someone
can be appointed as soon as
the City Council chooses to
do so.


Controlled

burn out

of control
By JEFFREY POWELL
A prescribed fire started
near Mallard Creek on the
Freeport Nature Preserve
got out of hand on Thurs-
day, Feb. 28.
A "working woods fire"
was reported around 2:43
p.m. and within a few min-
utes crews reported struc-
tures being threatened near
Joe Campbell Road.
Freeport Fire and Rescue
personnel were on site to as-
sist with the controlled burn
when the Division of For-
estry decided to extinguish
the blaze due to excessive
smoke on U.S. 331.
According to Florida Di-
vision of Forestry Incident
Commander Bruce Smith,
at least five homes were in
danger.
"While we were plowing
the area to contain the fire
we had a wind shift and the
fire jumped the prescribed
boundaries threatening area
homes," Smith said.

Commissioners meet with

Florida's U.S.


congressional delegation


Walton County commis-
sioners Larry Jones, Sara
Commander, Scott Brannon
and Kenneth Pridgen met
last week with Florida's
congressional dtlretgation in
Washington, D.C. to urge
ifdtr.al fu ndint for the coun-
ty's top project needs. Del-
egation members include
US, Senator Bill Nelson,
U,S, Representative Allen
Boyd, U.S. Representative
Jeff Miller and representa-
tives of U.S. Senator Mel
Martinez's office. Com-
missioners also met with
representatives of Florida
Governor Charlie Crist's
state office in Washington,
DC,, to request support of
the county's federal funding
needs with the congressio-
nal delegation.
Walton County commis-
sioners explained to the sen-


ators and representatives
the importance of obtaining
federal funds for six major
projects: including $7 mil-
lion towards widening U.S.
331, $5 million towards wid-
ening the Choctawhatchee
Bay Bridge, $3 million for a
new wastewater treatment
facility in Mossy Head,
$350,000 for a mobile health
unit, $500,000 to support
an environmental assess-
ment and the development
of long term plans to pre-
serve the county's 15 coastal
dune lakes, and $600,000
for beach nourishment proj-
ects.
"I feel very good about
meeting face-to-face with
our federal leaders," said
District 3 commissioner
and board chairman Larry
Jones. "They asked good


questions and seemed sin-
cerely interested in our top
funding needs."
District 4 commissioner
and vice chairman of Sara
Comander agreed. "Com-
missioner Jones, Commis-
sioner Brannon, Commis-
sioner Pridgen and I all took
turns explaining to each of
our federal leaders the sig-
nificance of these projects
to our districts and county
and I feel more encouraged
about securing federal funds
for these projects than ever
before."
The 2009-2010 federal
budget begins in Octo-
ber. Federal leaders begin
reviewing projects for fund-
ing considerations such as
Walton County's in June
through the Congressional
Appropriations Committee.

BBQ cooker causes fire


By ROBERT W. KING,
Lt. PIO, Liberty Fire Dis-
trict

So far, the month of Feb-
ruary has been a busy month
for Liberty Fire District,
with over 38 calls in the first
20 days of the month.
On Sunday, Feb. 17 a
family was cooking barbe-
cue in the cooker in their
yard when a stray ember
evidently fell from the cook-
er and started the grass on
fire. The fire soon spread
to a wooden storage build-
ing that sat between two
houses. A Liberty firefighter
was talking to a neighbor
across the road, but had his
back turned to the area in
question. The person he was
talking to told him there was
a fire across the street and
as he turned he observed a
huge column of black smoke
and flames. He immediately
called EOC dispatch on his


radio and had them send the
fire company and two ad-
ditional departments to the
scene to battle the blaze, as
there were three structures
threatened.
A fast attack vehicle was
first on the scene and wa-
ter was on the fire in a very
short time. The grass was
burning toward two liv-
ing structures, a propane
tank, and the wooden shed.
The firefighter attacked
the grass first where the
fire was spreading rapidly
toward the structures. He
then hosed down the pro-
pane tank to cool it down
and then the homes on ei-
ther side of the burning
shed. Before the water was
used from the fast attack
vehicle, the Liberty District
and DeFuniak Springs FD,
as mutual aid departments,
arrived on scene shortly to
assist the process. The pro-
pane tank was a potential


hazard and it was repeat-
edly cooled down and the
houses on either side were
watered down. Both hous-
es were saved with only
minimal damage to siding,
however, the wooden stor-
age shed was a total loss.
Thanks to the quick action
of the on scene firefighter
and Liberty Fire District
and their mutual aid part-
ners, two structures were
saved and no families were
displaced.
In the early hours of Feb.
20, at approximately 2 a.m.
a report of a vehicle on fire
on U.S. 331, north of Sun-
rise Road, was reported to
911. Liberty Fire District
was dispatched and found
a fully-involved, fiery motor
vehicle accident on the west
side of the highway at the
edge of the treeline, approx-
imately 500 feet south of
the south entrance to Lake
Holley Circle. They imme-

The



Surveillance



State

By RON KELLEY
In a recent newsletter from U.S. Representative Jeff
Miller, the congressman praised the oddly-named Protect
America Act, an addendum to the Foreign Intelligence Sur-
veillance Act (FISA), and blasted Democrats for opposing
it. Miller said, "Apparently, the current House leadership
does not see the urgency in keeping America safe from ter-'
rorist plots. I support a permanent, comprehensive update
to the FISA law which gives our intelligence professionals
all of the tools they need to keep our country safe from ter-
rorist attacks. I also support immunity for telecommunica-
tions companies that cooperated with the government after
the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001."
Congress seems to have taken a page from the president's
playbook and now uses blatant, overblown scare-tactics to
frighten us into handing over our civil rights and liberties.
For the last six years, Democrats have rattled their sabers
about how Congress and the president have turned Amer-
ica into "The Surveillance State." But saber-rattling is all
they do. As soon as some Fox News bonehead suggests that
anyone who doesn't go along with this stuff is "weak on ter-
ror," the weak-willed Democrats roll over and play 'possum.
They meekly and quietly sign away the rights and freedoms
that generations of our soldiers have fought and died to pro-
tect.
I like Jeff Miller, but he's dangerously wrong about this
new bill and giving blanket immunity to telecommunica-
tions companies who have repeatedly violated your privacy
and trust legitimizing their criminal activity is so ghastly
and fearful, it's the kind of thing one might expect only in
China or North Korea.
Glenn Greenwald is a constitutional law attorney and
best-selling author. He's the one who broke the NSA scan-
dal and is considered one of nation's leading experts on
gross civil liberty violations. He's quoted by House and Sen-
ate leaders and his reports have been the basis for head-
lines nationwide.
On Tuesday, Greenwald wrote, in part, "The absolute
most 'liberal' viewpoint that can be expressed is that the
FISA court is a wonderful and important safeguard on civil
liberties and it strikes the perfect balance between freedom
and security. But for decades, the FISA court was consid-
ered to be one of the great threats to civil liberties. The
FISA is a classically Kafka-esque court that operates in to-
tal secrecy. Only the Government, and nobody else, is per-
mitted to attend, participate, and make arguments. Only
the Government is permitted access or to know about the
decisions issued by the court. As a result, the FISA court
has been notorious for mindlessly rubber-stamping every
single Government request to eavesdrop on whomever they
want. And indeed, as reports of imminent'and entirely pre-
dictable House Democratic capitulation on the FISA bill
emerge, the FISA court is now deemed by the establish-
ment to be too far to the Left too much restraint on our
increasingly omnipotent surveillance state.
"Back then, the premise that unchecked presidential spy-
ing would lead to massive abuses as it did for decades was
just a given, something beyond the realm of what could be
reasonably debated. Now only Left partisans worry about
such silly things.
"Even back then, of course, there were the hysterical
fear-mongers who argued that we would all be subjugated
- and slaughtered by the Communists (insert the word Ter-
rorists) if we imposed oversight on presidential spying, but
- unlike today, when that mentality dominates our political
establishment it was, back then, a small-and irrelevant
fringe.
"That all seems so quaint. The political establishment
today knows only one viewpoint: literally no limits are tol-
erable on the power of the loving, protective Surveillance
State."

Editor:
On Feb. 16 our Relay for Life team "Reach Out, Walton
County" held our first annual Relay for Life Turkey Shoot.
The event was a great success, raising $ 700 for the American
Cancer Society. We could not pull this off alone.
We would like to thank Amvets Post #178 for hosting the
event, supplying the targets and providing food and drinks
for the event. We were able to provide for the winners with
he help of donations from Beef O' Brady's, Mom & Dad's
Restaurant, L&H Automotive, Unique Cuts and Styles,
Ryan's Steakhouse, McLain's Family Restaurant, One
Stop Auto, Wal-Mart and Sears.
A special thank you is due to T.J. King for supplying the
shot gun shells, running the everit and making the event a
great success, along with Warren Farmer for creating the
idea and helping get the word out.
Without their enthusiasm and dedication this event
would not have been as wonderful as it was. Also thank-
you to the people who attended the event and showed their
support to the American Cancer Society!
Sincerely,
Melissa Harbin and Amy Bel
Reach Out Walton County


Dear Assistant Editor (Bruce Collier),
I am writing in response to your editorial, "An Embar-
rassment of Riches," in last week's Herald.
The Board of Trustees of Florida Chautauqua Assembly,
Inc., with over 20 years of combined experience attending
the Summer Assemblies at Chautauqua, New York, will
once again return this summer to experience, to learn, to
grow and to review with the responsible parties there how
to program Chautauqua in DeFuniak Springs. It was a bit
of a disappointment that you spent less time reviewing the
programming of the two Assemblies and focused more on
the sensational impact this situation has had on our com-
munity.
In 2009, we will continue to program around the four
pillars of Chautauqua Religion, Education, the Arts and
Recreation. In accordance with the founding fathers of
Chautauqua, John Heyl Vincent and Lewis Miller, we will
continue to provide a place and a platform for "life-long
learning" and "civil discourse."
In response to your last sentence, "Will it bring olive
branches?" we understand that Diane Pickett has an-
nounced, due to her move to California, that there will be
no further Assemblies in DeFuniak Springs put on by her
organization. Please note that this was the primary rea-
son I felt morally obligated to begin the Florida Chautau-
qua Assembly, Inc., in the first place to assure DeFuniak
Springs' Chautauqua heritage would continue uninter-
rupted by an organization built on our community's values
and Chautauqua ideals. Our hope was that this would be
our community's way of showing appreciation for her re-
vival of Chautauqua, 13 years ago.
Chautauqua traditionally has an "open door" policy. We
welcome all ideas from any source on how we can have one
Florida Chautauqua Assembly. We also feel that a profit-
able investment for the DeFuniak Herald would be to send
you to the Chautauqua Insitution this summer to get first-
hand experience of the "best of America." I do not know
anyone who would enjoy it more.
Ann Robinson, President
Florida Chautauqua Assembly, Inc.


Editor
This letter is concerning an incident I had with Walton
County Deputy Scott Thompson, on Saturday, Feb. 23,
2008. I understand there are rumors that I have a problem
with the sheriffs department.
Let me make it perfectly clear, I have no problem with
Sheriff Johnson or the rest of his department, as I have
friends and family that are part of the department. My
problem is only with Deputy Thompson.
As a matter of fact, Sheriff Johnson had done more for the
north end of the county than has been done in the past.
Sincerely,
Gary Barker
Samson, AL.


Editor:
I want to wholeheartedly agree with Ron Kelley's edito-
rial in the Herald-Breeze (02/21/08) pertaining to the big,
blue signs that the TDC have perpetrated on the citizens
of CR-30A and south Walton. I wholeheartedly agree with
his choice of words, using such language as "superfluous,
incidental, unnecessary, overpriced, grossly unattractive,
hideous, grotesque, unsightly, loathsome, foul, pointless,
unseemly, ill-proportioned, graceless, odious, useless, and
vulgar." These words sum it up quite well.
I have little doubt that the Herald-Breeze did some re-
porting on.this. In his own words Kelley said the Herald-
Breeze "covered the item on more than one occasion" but
also said he was "surprised" by the TDC's plan to deploy
these signs. If the editor of the newspaper of record of our
county is surprised by an event, it surely means somebody
was kept in the dark.
It is one thing to have several articles with written
words about arcane committee meetings over the space
of four years pertaining to this project, and it is another
thing to have full-color diagrams and renderings with di-
mensions and perspective of these signs portrayed promi-
nently in the newspapers. For over 20 years, I have read
all the local papers and I have never seen anything that
looked like 44 16-foot tall blue balloons.
At the meeting when members of the south Walton
community confronted the TDC about the signs, Clare
Bannerman, who has tirelessly pursued the goal of having
CR-30A designated a scenic highway, said that she never
once saw one member of the TDC ever attend her meet-
ings. So much for community cooperation.
I guess what bothers me most is the arrogance of the
TDC to proceed with something so unnecessary and so
overpriced. The reason this process took so long, with so
much wasted money, is the darn things are too big and
too tall. Of course, the DOT had problems with them!
They are too big! Did anyone on the TDC look at the sign
company's specifications and say 16 feet seems a little too
tall? There are plenty of houses that aren't 16 feet tall.
Forrest Gump's mother always said: "Stupid is as stupid
does."

Editor,
It was with great interest that I read of'the failure of
Walton County Sheriff Ralph Johnson to appear at a meet-
ing that he requested. It would appear that this conduct has
become the norm as opposed to a once in a while unavoid-
able circumstance. It is also noted that numerous attempts
to contact him, personally or telephonically by citizens of
Walton County, have met with negative results.
It is not unusual for the Sheriff Johnson to send a rank-
ing officer in his place, one who is expected to know all the
answers to questions posed of him or her. It is also not un-
usual for the replacement to incur the displeasure of the
sheriff when questions are not answered the way the sher-
iff wanted them to be or places the sheriff in an unfavor-
able light. One must wonder if this is the reason that Capt.
Ferris answered several questions with the response "I do
not know. Only Sheriff Johnson can answer that."
In another recent round of questions asked of the sher-
iff, pertaining to the untimely return of approximately
$700,000 in excess funds from last year's budget, Sheriff
Johnson chose to have his attorney respond in writing in-
stead of responding himself. Is Sheriff Johnson going to
pay for this or are the citizens of Walton County going to
foot the bill?
If you have been following this latest saga of Sheriff
Johnson's seeming inability to handle the finances of the
sheriffs department correctly, you must wonder if there is
more to the story than we are being told? Was there an at-
tempt to hide the $700,000 so that it or part or it could be
used at a later date for pet projects of the sheriff, such as
his driving course? Did the sheriff not realize that he had to
place any project over $200,000 on the Commission agenda
for approval at a public meeting? Did the sheriff not real-
ize that a project of this size and cost, over $350,000 must
be put out for bids and not just awarded to one company
without the bidding process? Is it time for the Florida Au-
ditor General to step in and perform a complete audit on
the sheriffs department budgets for the past eight years?
What else has gone on that no one knows about?
As a retired law enforcement officer with 30 years of ex-
perience, I can honestly say that 9 out of 10 times a person
has an attorney answer questions for them, that person
either is guilty of a crime or is trying to hide something
that might later be construed as a crime. By the way, the
sheriff chose to attend a cooking show in Freeport instead
of answering the questions of the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners.

March is Na-
tional Women's
History Month.
What historical
female public fig-
ure do you admire
and why?


SALLY MERRIFIELD
Paxton
"Eleanor Roosevelt, basi-
cally because she made her
decisions herself. She was
very strong-willed and in-
telligent. She was a woman
before her time and a good
example for today's women."


LIZ SINCLAIR
DeFuniak Springs


"Shirley Chisholm. She
was a brave, bright, articu-
late woman. I voted for her
in the primary in 1972. She
would have made a great
president. "


APRIL PALMER
DeFuniak Springs


"Nadia Comaneci, be-
cause she and I are the same
age, and I was into gymnas-
tics as a kid. I learned about
the hardships she faced liv-
ing in Romania and the way
she overcame them. She and
her husband, Bart Conner,
own a gym where they teach
children in my hometown,
Norman, Oklahoma."


RICHARD MURRAY
DeFuniak Springs


"Mother Teresa, for her
work with the underprivi-
leged in Calcutta, AIDS pa-
tients, and lepers. And her
strong devotion to God."


Blood drive scheduled
The Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center
will hold a blood drive, on Friday, March 28, from 11
a.m.-4 p.m. Bring photo ID.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 2008


CORNMAN

the past 25 plus years he
has worked in many areas
of law enforcement such as
'corrections, patrol, investi-
gations and management.
During Cornman's career
as an investigator and su-
pervisor/manager he has re-
ceived numerous commen-
dations and awards for his
work including recent lead-
ership awards for his man-
agement of special opera-
tions. He has also had the
opportunity to work on oper-
ations with many different
sheriffs' offices throughout
the state as well as many po-
lice departments. One of the
many things Cornman says
he has learned is, communi-
ty-style policing works.
Agencies using policing
techniques that get their
communities involved and
keep them informed are
more successful. As sher-
iff of Walton County, that
is one of Cornman's main
priorities and goals. He has
many priorities and goals
that he wants to accomplish


FROM FRONT

once he becomes sheriff
some of which are listed be-
low:
Walton County Sher-
iffs office and the sheriff
will be accessible to all
its citizens.
I will have an open door
policy and be accessible to
all of our citizens and en-
sure that the sheriffs office
is responsive to their needs.
I will have quarterly town
hall meetings in different
communities throughout
Walton County so that I can
meet with members of the
communities and discuss
their needs and concerns.
I will have office days
each week in different areas
of the county so that I can be
accessible and serve all the
citizens of our great county.
I will ensure that the citi-
zens of Walton County are
kept informed of events of
the department and other
matters essential to them
by having a qualified and
trained public information
person, who will be familiar


with communicating with
the public as well as the me-
dia.
I will ensure that all citi-
zens and visitors of Walton
County receive fair and
equal treatment.
Reorganize Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office to ensure
that the best possible law
enforcement service avail-
able is given to its citizens.
I will ensure that the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice personnel are qualified
and trained for the positions
they fill.
I will ensure the Walton
County Sheriffs Office has
investigators who receive
advanced training in con-
ducting the investigations
assigned.
I will ensure that all em-
ployees of the Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office receive
training and stay up to date
on new policing trends and
investigation techniques
within the law enforcement
community.
I will ensure that the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice makes use of the many
grants available for law en-
forcement to aid in the fund-

gospel music very soon."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, TH URSDAY, MARCH 6,2008


JOHNSON


to employees and expenses
to what you might have left
over. It already been dis-
cussed with them (BCC) in
a public meeting that I'm
going to try to purchase a
200-foot metal building for
storage and perhaps add on
offices upstairs. There are
other projects that need to
be done for the county and
this office."
Johnson said he feels the
response from the BCC over
his budget is unwarranted.
"You know, they are pun-
ishing me for being conser-
vative with the money. To
buy a piece of equipment to
save lives, to build a train-
ing facility to teach young
deputies and helps save
their lives and others, to the
young drivers at the high
school, teaching them how
to drive. Well, you know, if
saving lives, if that makes
me a bad person, then I'm
just a bad person. They have
put politics above public
safety. My job is about pub-
lic safety and their job is to
supply the money for public
safety and at the end of the
day, that is what it's about,
public safety."
Johnson said that with-
out the upgrades, there is no
back-up in place if the main
911 system at the Emergen-
cy Operations Center (EOC)
goes down. "There won't be
back-up if we don't get the
system upgraded. We are
the back-up and we're not
in compliance without this
system. Someone has to pay
for the system for us to be in
compliance. They'll get their
money from either the BCC
or they'll sue one of us for
payment, if we don't have
the extra to cover it at the
end of the year."
Johnson said he withdrew
his request for funds for the
driving track "because it has
to be bidded out. A sheriff -
as a constitutional officer -
has a certain ability to over-
see projects. I didn't even
think when we began that
it had to be bidded out by
the county. Imfeld or some-
one brought up the fact that


CONTINUED FROM FRONT


it has to be bidcled out. My
attorney from t he sheriffs
organization found rulings
on both sides, biat the final
analysis was that it had to be
bidded out. So I said, 'Stop.'
We met with the county at-
torney and Ronni e Bell and
let them take it Iover. Why
should I take it ,out of my
budget if they have to take
care of it? I would .have done
that to start with if I knew
they had to take ca ire of it."
Johnson also talked about
the financial and personnel
problems that have been
plaguing him in the: last few
years. "We have an .a.udit ev-
er'y year," Johnson e explains,
"The inmate welfare funds
we just returned were held
back by Margie to catch
checks when we transferred
everything over. WI len she
left, we didn't know i t hadn't
been returned. The. auditor,
doing his job, found that it
had not been returned yet
and so we sent it bac :k. That
simple."
Johnson said he had im-
plemented new accounting
procedures including inter-
nal controls and flow charts
to ensure accounting proce-
dures are never overlooked
in his office again. Johnson
also noted that per sonnel
in the WCSO are tiighly-
specialized and not easy to
replace should one em; ployee
leave before training .a new
employee for the positi ion.
Capt. Eddie F 'arris,
spokesman for the V'CSO,
added, "We are writing a
new policy and procedure
manual to incorp, orate
checks and balances a nd a
new management system
which includes more ,than
one person overseeing ac-
counts."
Regarding $5,000 re-
turned to the BCC just
days ago, Farris said:, "'Ihis
is the part that's not being
put out there. On Dec. 18,
2006, before the county took
over the jail, we gave th-em
$25,000 to be put in the .in-
mate fund so that would get
them started, so they, could
get that account opened u.p.


On January 18, 2007, they
were given $422,467.52. The
County Commission was
given that amount. That
closed out the account ex-
cept that $5,000 that Mar-
gie (Adams) had kept over
to cover any outstanding
bills. The sheriff had told
Margie that once the bills
were covered, to close out
that account and send the
rest back. When the auditor
came in, they asked another
accounting employee about
it and they came to me and I
went to the sheriff. He said
it should already be closed
out. He told me to write a
letter and return the funds
explaining what had hap-
pened. I hand-delivered the
letter over to Bill Imfeld's
office at 11:30 that morning.
Well, at 2:30 that afternoon,
I had the Daily News calling
wanting to know all about
it. They also had a copy of
the letter apologizing for the
oversight and that the sher-
iff had told the accounting
office that that account was
supposed to be closed. I find
out it's already been posted
on two websites. I say there
is something fishy about it.
It's political. It has to show
something for a newspaper
to get the information in
just a couple of hours and
nobody else knew about this
- only us and the auditor.
We fixed it as soon as it was
brought to our attention.
I mean, they leave out the
over $400,000 we returned,
but they want to make
something out of $5,000?"
"Politics," says Johnson,
"It's all politics and the au-
ditor is caught in the middle.
There is nothing out of the
ordinary with these funds."
When it comes to politics,
Johnson says he's been tak-
ing the heat since Jan. 1,
2001. "They are misleading
the public with false allega-
tions and statements," said
Johnson. When asked who
"they" are, Johnson says it
includes "everyone that is
making false statements
about what is going on in our
office. They arejurting our

personnel and the citizens
of Walton County because
it puts these thoughts out
to people who don't know
the real story. If the Com-
mission or whoever does not
supply the money or if some-
one replaces me and doesn't
ask for the money, the crime
gets ahead of the officers.
The idea is to prevent crime
and protect, not to just react
to it after the fact."
Johnson also explained
his absence during the last
BCC meeting. "I knew they
were going to go down there
and talk about politics and
it had nothing to do with
the issle at hand. The issue
at hand was simply a pro-
cedure to move the money
back, that's it. I was told
what was going to happen.
It's not fair to the public, it's
not fair to the commission-
ers, it not fair to anyone for
that type of behavior to go
on. The public suffers from
bad information. The issue
was simply for them to move
the money back to pay for
the equipment. I had a pre-
vious engagement in Free-
port and I did need to go
out and meet the public and
support our booth, which
was "crime prevention." The
commissioners knew what
had to be done and there
were also people there who
had certain political and
personal reasons to be there
and I knew that. I'm not go-
ing to take part in that if I
can help it. It's not right."
Johnson said, "The prob-
lem is all humans make
mistakes. We all do and we're
sorry for those mistakes,
but you have to depend on
whoever is in a certain office
to keep .you informed and
to do their job. You try and
check, but you can't catch
everything. People also
make honest mistakes, but
if they do make one and the
horse is already out of the
gate, the damage is done. So
would I do anything differ-
ent? I've done everything I
can to not let mistakes hap-
pen. Do you get damaged?
Yes, you do. Do you get criti-
cized? Yes, you do. Every


sheriff I've talked with has
told me they have the same
problems with finding and
keeping good personnel and
they all have problems with
their commissioners. I ask
them 'does it ever change?'
and they said 'no.' If I fell
dead today, whoever gets
this spot will have the same
problems and some of the
same and maybe some dif-
ferent issues as I have had
to deal with on a daily ba-
sis."
Farris agreed. "I've been
here through two adminis-
trations and they have had
many of the same issues
with the BCC and personnel.
It's not like Sheriff Johnson
is different. He's having the
same issues that prior ad-
ministrations have had."
Farris said that other
media outlets only seem to
be interested in controversy
where Johnson's office is
concerned. "You know I've
tried to get other papers to
come over and see the posi-
tive things we are doing
here, but they just tell me
they have to run it by their
editor before they can do it.
I send stuff out, but if it's
positive, it doesn't go in,"
he said. "If someone calls
them about something that
could be misconstrued as
negative, well then, they'll
go with that. I don't know
why, but all I can say is, it's
politics. All we are asking of
the news media is to be fair.
Print both sides and let the
public make the decision."
Farris said, "If this equip-
ment had been installed in
Sept. 2007, like we were


PAGE 11-A
hoping, this wouldn't be an
issue. Yes, the buck stops
with (Johnson), but he also
has to depend on the people
who work for him. If they
give him bad advice or don't
speak up, if they make a mis-
take, then he's made to look
like the bad guy. It's not fair
to the men and women of
this department. I've been
here for 25 years. I love this
county and the people and
the sheriff has done a good
job. This organization has
come a long way in the last
seven years in terms of per-
sonnel, training and equip-
ment."
Johnson said, "If there
is a new sheriff and he's in
bed politically with those
against me, you won't hear
about the mistakes, you'll
just hear the good. If they
are not a part of that po-
litical circle, they'll get the
same treatment I get. Per-
sonnel have done their job
and we will continue to do
our job. People are trying
to discredit me, but it's not
about me. People can say
what they want to about me,
but the bottom line is we
protect the citizens the best
we can and we will continue
to protect and serve all the
citizens of Walton County.
I will continue like I have
in the last seven years to
protect them, prevent crime
and to keep them safe. I will
fight to keep the number of
personnel on the street to
keep them safe and I will
continue to fight for the
equipment to keep them
safe. That's my job and I've
done it."

into the 21st century, and I

I am committed to higher

license were in the Civil War. This

of the business in the state of
Florida Florida. According to Slate
'he tag magazine, "Specialty plates
support were virtually unheard-of
tuents. in most states until 1987,

Florida commemorating the space
of Con- shuttle Challenger."
The state then followed
up with the controversial
"Choose Life" tag. According
to multiple public sources,
"The Florida's four-year bat-
Stle to get Choose Life tags
included a 1998 veto of the
N .T enabling bill by then-gov-


ernor Lawton Chiles, and
the signing of the resubmit-
ted bill in 1999 by Gov. Jeb
Bush, followed quickly by
a lawsuit against the tags
by the National Organiza-
tion of Women. The suit was
eventually dismissed and
the tags released to the pub-
lic in 2000."
The tags have become
moneymakers for certain
non-profits, with over 100
tags now being sold for vari-
ous causes at $25. per tag.
Tags exist representing ev-
eryone from the Girl Scouts
of America to supporting
Agriculture in the Class-
room. Together, all specialty
tags in Florida generated $
33,475,198 for the 2007 fis-
cal year.
Many don't believe that
the state should endorse tags
that may bring controversy,
but Brown said that all of
his constituents deserve the
chance to be heard.
Governor Charlie Crist
and State Senator Al Law-
son have vowed that the tag
will not have a chance of
getting past the House Leg-
islature. Brown has publicly
stated, "I can't be respon-
sible for what the political
climate may be, but I can be
responsible for doing what I
think is right."

Boys & Girls Club Teen Center fills gap


By CHRIS MANSON

The Boys & Girls Club of
DeFuniak Springs opened
its Teen Center Saturday
with a ribbon-cutting cere-
mony that drew a who's who
of city and county officials,
as well as students and vol-
unteers.
"The main objective today
is to introduce the center to
the community," said Cory
Godwin, Walton County ad-
visory chair for Boys & Girls
Clubs of the Emerald Coast.


The center's after school
program began Monday af-
ternoon.
Godwin said a key com-
ponent to the program's suc-
cess was the Walton County
School District's agreement
to provide bus transporta-
tion from area schools to the
center. For the opening cer-
emony, the Busy Bee Cafe
provided food.
Bobbie Smith, unit direc-
tor, said, "I was enjoying
the mixture of cultures in
the basketball games today,


young and old."
"This is a good place for
teens to chill," said Wal-
ton Middle School student
Javon Green, during a break
on the court. "We finally got
a place to hang out."

The center still needs
classroom supplies such as
books and desks. Godwin
said a local merchant pro-
vided furniture for the teen
lounge. "Monetary dona-
tions are always welcome,"
he said, adding that no child


would be turned away for
lack of money. "As long as
you're in school, you're wel-
come here," said staffer Iris
Scott.
An annual member-
ship runs $25, which God-
win called "cheaper than
a babysitter." The after
school program includes a
"power hour," during which
youth are required to work
on homework assignments.
The center will also offer in-
struction in areas like pho-
tography and music. "We are


also purchasing a very large
gaming system for tourna-
ment play," said Godwin.
From its conception, the
Teen Center took about sev-
en months to become a real-
ity. "I was born and raised
here," said Godwin. "We do
great with the younger kids,
but once they get past little
league age, there's a gap in
providing services outside
the school system."
Toward the end of this
month, Bright House will
sp'bnsor Boys & Girls Club


Week. The festivities will co-
incide with the March Mad-
ness basketball tournament
and include a movie night
complete with a state-of-
the-art audio-video system.

Information packets are
available at the Teen Cen-
ter, located next to the De-
Funiak Springs Community
Center on SR-83. The pack-
et includes general informa-
tion on memberships and
scholarships along with the
club's rules.

No need to Hyde From this performance


By LEAH STRATMANN
An ambitious undertak-
ing, plus months of rehears-
al for the musical "Jekyll &
Hyde," pays off handsomely
for the audience in the cur-
rent Stage Crafters produc-
tion, opening Friday March
7.
From the opening number
through the end, the actors
are compelling, the singing
accomplished, and the exe-
cution of the script crisp and
polished. Directors Craig


Ewing and Nancy Kruzek
addressed the audience
before the Monday show,
which was a technical dress
Rehearsal and fundraiser for
the United Way, saying re-
hearsal for the show began
in November. They asked
the audience to overlook any
missteps in the show as the
cast had only had use of the
Fort Walton Beach Audito-
rium for a few days. They
needn't have worried no
missteps were noted.


Stage Crafters newcomer
Zack Kennison, as Jekll and
Hyde, showed an amazing
vocal range and some solid
acting chops in a difficult
part requiring a great deal
of stage time. Strong sing-
ing skills are mandatory
for this part and Kennison
proved more than up to the
challenge. Two other Stage
Crafters novices, Rachael
Jones and Melissa Wolf as
the two women in his life
- one when he's Jekyll and


the other when he's Hyde -
ably backed him up. Jones
had the more difficult of the
two roles, but both women
showed versatile singing
and acting skills.
The story concerns an
idealistic young Dr. Henry
Jekyll, who is perplexed by
the madness of his father.
Jekyll seeks to create some-
thing like a vaccine, which
will eliminate the evil from
man. He postulates every
man is equally capable of

ing).


both good and evil, but feels
the evil can be removed.
What Jekyll needs is a hu-
man subject on which to
test his chemistry and seeks
a candidate from the hos-
pital's asylum. Facing the
head of his hospital's board
and making his request, he
is roundly and thoroughly
rejected, yet Jekyll feels he
is onto something.
Meanwhile Jekyll is en-
gaged to the lovely Emma,
whose board member father
Sir Danvers Carew (Brett
Huston) was the only mem-
ber of the hospital board to
abstain from denying Je-
kyll's request. Still, as a
father, the intense young
doctor does not seem like
a good match for his much
sheltered daughter, and he
tries in vain to talk her out
of marrying him.
Ultimately Jekyll begins
injecting himself with his
concoction and becomes the *
very incarnation of evil. He
goes on a killing spree, tak-
ing out every hospital board
member. When he is Jekyll,
he is aware of how very evil
Edward Hyde is and at first
he is in charge of when Hyde
appears, but soon the trans-
formation takes place with-
out direct activity by Jekyll
as the Hyde characteristics
grow in strength.
Toward the end of the


production, Kennison moves
rapidly from personifying
Jekyll to Hyde, changing his
voice and his body's stance
for a song called "The Con-
frontation." It is a tour-de-
force moment in a play filled
with highlights.
Kudos must be given to
costume designer Eddie Kel-
ley for the authentic 1880s
garb worn by the perform-
ers. He said many of the
costumes were hand sewn,
some were rented and some
were borrowed from Troy
University. The overall ef-
fect transports the perform-
ers to an earlier era.
Accolades also go out to
the lighting and sound di-
rectors. Without an orches-
tra, getting the pre-recorded
sound right is critical and
David Parker was right on
the money. Likewise, light-
ing by Jerry Medders was
perfect.
This is a nice night out
at the theater. Such hard
work by our community's
citizens should be rewarded
with large audiences.. Per-
formances are March 7, 8,
13, 14, and 15 at 7:30 p.m.
and March 9 and March 16
at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20
and may be purchased at all
Century 21 locations. Reser-
vations may also be made by

Auntie Em

Dear Auntie Em,
I'm a new mom. My daughter is only three and we live in a very rural area. There
aren't a lot of other moms nearby. Here's my problem. Anytime I take my daughter to a
birthday party or get together, she doesn't do well. She just runs wild, sometimes even
biting other kids when they won't share with her. She seems fine at home but then
again, she usually gets whatever she wants.
How can I help my daughter to learn to get along with other kids? Other moms are
starting to look at me with dread when I show up with my daughter in tow. Thanks.
New mom in New Harmony
(Name and address withheld on request.)
Dear New Mom,
There are two tough things every parent must deal with in their life,when their child
is in your daughter's age group. One is setting boundaries and sticking to them and the
second is letting children face their own consequences.
You are trying to help your daughter by letting her socialize with other kids, which
is a great start, but boundaries begin at home. If she wants something and cries enough
for it, do you break down and give it to her because it easier? If so, then it's time for you
to regain your composure and your role as parent. At your daughter's age, incorporat-
ing small time-outs to get over tantrums can start working. If your daughter knows you
mean business and won't cave, she won't push as hard or as far when you hold your
ground on bad behavior.
Children also need to understand the feelings of others and your daughter is still in
the growth-stage where she believes the world revolves around her. I'm also in favor
of letting kids work out their issues with each other, as long as there is no danger in-
volved. Most kids who bite stop when they get the same treatment from another kid.
I'm not saying to let her get trampled by the older ones, but letting her learn how other
kids can respond to her bad behavior will teach her about consequences. Let the other
moms help you, as well. Reach out to them and they will reach back. Good luck and God
bless.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 6,2008 PAGE 5-B

Movie Review


Wedded, Bedded, Beheaded: "The Other Boleyn Girl"


By BRUCE COLLIER
Justin Chadwick's "The Other Boleyn Girl" is
adapted from Phillippa Greogry's bestseller about Anne
and Mary Boleyn. Both sisters apparently caught the
eye of England's serial bridegroom, King Henry VIII.
Mary bore her king a child, but never wedded him.
Anne, as all the world knows, became Queen Anne and
mother of the illustrious Elizabeth I. Desire for Anne
motivated Henry's divorce from his first wife,
Katherine of Aragon, which in turn led to the king's
break with the Roman Catholic Church and the
foundation' of the present-day Church of England.
Anne's failure to produce a male heir securing
Henry's dynasty for another generation contributed to
her downfall and execution on questionable charges of
adultery, witchcraft, and so forth.
Merrie Olde England was apparently anything but.
"The Other Boleyn Girl" gives us a consistently gloomy
view of the Tudor court, all dim passages, flickering
torches, and barred windows. Even the love scenes in
Henry's private chambers are lit like a tragedy. Justly
so. Henry VIII was a bad king profligate, impulsive,
corrupt and a homicidal paranoid in his later years.
Though this film shows him in his youthful vigor
(played by stalwart, handsome Eric Bana), we see the
seeds of self-indulgence and indifference to others that


would characterize most of his reign.
Anne and Mary (played respectively by Natalie
Portman and Scarlett Johansson) start off young,
happy and innocent. The latter state ends shortly into
the film, when their ambitious parents and their nasty
kinsman, the Duke of Norfolk conspire to set dainty
dish Anne before the visiting king. The plan is that
Henry will take Anne as his mistress, and the rest of
the Boleyn family will cash in on his royal generosity.
The plan succeeds, only it's Mary ("the other Boleyn
girl") who catches the royal stallion's eye. Mary's got a
husband, but that's only a minor inconvenience.
Jealous Anne gets in a snit, marries unwisely, and is
packed off to France for a gilded time-out. She returns,
works her Continental mojo on Henry a man who
thinks with the southern end of his spinal column and
soon has him risking excommunication for her favors.
The rest is history. Sort of.
This is the kind of film that British directors and
actors can pull off almost in their sleep. Though
neither Boleyn sister is played by a, British actress
(Portman is Israeli, Johannsson American), Chadwick
surrounds them with a crack team of British
performers, including Kristen Scott Thomas, Jim
Sturgess, David Morrissey, and Benedict Cumberbatch,
all of whom learned their craft on PBS or in prior


costume epics. It takes an experienced player to rattle
off pages of expository dialogue, making lines like "the
King needs to set up his own church a Church of
England!" sound like breakfast chat. They succeed.
As Henry, Australian Bana is pretty unsympathetic,
playing the king as a grownup child, always searching
for new toys and discarding the old ones without a
thought. His sincerity is fleeting, and usually with an
ulterior motive. Still, he looks good on a horse.
Portman and Johansson do look a bit like siblings,
and have a noticeable sisterly chemistry. Portman
departs from her usual nice-girl image to play Anne as a
ruthless opportunist, supremely confident of her power
over the king. Only when biology takes a hand in the
form of a.girl child and a subsequent miscarriage does
she unravel, with frightening speed. Her discomposure
is exactly what one would expect. On the block, her
hands and voice shake up to the moment of her death.
Johansson gets to be far sweeter, playing Mary as the
only person in the film who actually loves Henry. Hers
is a happier ending.
Costumes are terrific and CGI-London is
appropriately both grand and filthy. "The Other Boleyn
Girl" may move some viewers to read the novel, or
.better yet, a history of Tudor England. What it won't do
is make you wish you had lived in the good old days.

Lady Braves blast Paxton


By CHUCK HINSON
The Lady Bobcats are
still trying to recover from
their state basketball tour-
nament because Walton was


able to take care of business
early in the game.
It wasn't too much of a
blowout until the top of the
sixth inning when Walton


exploded on offense and
racked up 12 runs to beat
intracounty rival Paxton,
22-3. Shelbie Standland
went 5-for-5 for the Lady


Braves and knocked in sev-
en'runs.
Devin Richardson got the
win on the mound for Wal-


ton.
Emily Davis went 3-for-5
for Walton, while Layala
Roberts added two hits.
Marylynn Gilbert went


2-for-3 to lead Paxton's of-
fense.

PDL girls earn 6-4 district win over Freeport


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Pirates
scored three runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning, then
held off a Freeport rally to
earn a 6-4 win in the district
opener for both teams.

Freeport took a 1-0 lead
in the top of the first inning
as Amanda Bates singled in
Nicole Dykes for the early
road advantage. PDL turned
the deficit into a 3-1 lead in
the third inning as Jaicee
Mayo singled in Gypsy Grif-
fin, then scored on Sha-lea


Yates triple. Hillary Harper
added an RBI-groundout for
the 3-1 advantage.
Freeport scratched across
a run in the fourth inning to
cut the lead to 3-2 as Curstin
Buford singled in Amber
Mount. An error opened the
scoring for PDL in the sixth
inning, but Katlyn Carroll's
double allowed the Pirates
to stretch the lead to 6-2
heading into the seventh in-
ning.
Hillary Harper. pitched
the complete game for the
Pirates, but struggled in the


top of the seventh as a walk
and an error followed by a
pair of Bulldogs singles cut
the margin to 6-4 with the
tying runs on base. Harper
was able to coax a grounder
to second from Jesse Moult-
on to end the game, however,
as the chilly contest came to
a close.
Game Notes: The game
was played with tempera-
tures in the low 40's. Jaicee
Mayo, an 8th-grader, hit a
home run in the 5th inning,
only to be called out on an


appeal for missing the first
base bag while circling the
bases, much to the ire of
the PDL crowd. Freeport
Head Coach Charles Trot-
man rotated Curstin Buford
and Jordan Howell on the
mound for most of the game.
Freeport left eight runners
on base while PDL had five.
Mayo had a single, double
and home run, though the
round-tripper was nullified
by appeal to lead all hitters.
The two teams will play
again in Freeport on March
24.

Edwards flips over win,



but failed post inspection


By CHUCK HINSON
For the second time in
less than a week, Carl Ed-
wards did his famous back-
flip after crawling out of the
car from another victory.
This time he cashed in vic-
tory lane after winning the
NASCAR UAW-Dodge 400
on Sunday in Las Vegas.
This win came after the
race was postponed, much
like the win Edwards had on
the previous Monday due to
weather in California. He is
now at the top of the Sprint
Cup points standing for the
year.

But the celebration might
be short-lived after a post-
race inspection was per-
formed in the pit. Investiga-
tors who perform the ritual,
said that Edwards' Ford Fu-
sion was missing a lid on the
oil tank box.
If found guilty, the car,
driver and racing team could
face steep fines and penal-
ties. The car was shipped


back on Tuesday to North
CArolina NASCAR head-
quarters for further testing.
But for the moment, Ed-
wards got the checkered flag,
and won his sixth victory,
out of the last 11 races in
Vegas, for team owner Jack
Rousch, and it also ended
the three-straight winnings
by Jimmie Johnson.

Despite an almost called
penalty for a runaway tire
in the pit that was ruled an
accident, and two late re-
starts, the No. 99 car still
managed to hold onto the
lead and take the final flag.
Though crossing the line
in second place, Dale Earn-
hardt Jr. still remains win-
less after 64 races. Greg
Biffle followed in at third.
The top 10 finishers includ-
ed:
Start positions noted in

Kyle Busch, who was try-
ing to become the first win-
ner from the pole at Las
Vegas, fell short and had to
settle for 11th place. Jim-
mie Johnson continued to

By. CHUCK HINSON
After four years of no
PGA wins, no placings and
no green jackets, Ernie Els
finally walked off the course
with the trophy in his hand,
the check in his pocket and
the assurance to fans that
he is back on the PGA tour.
He took the victory with
a 3-under 67 to win the The
Honda Classic this past
weekend in Palm Beach
Gardens. It was his first win
since 2004.
The excitement of the en-
tire game was between Els
and Mark Calcavecchia and
his chip that seemed to nev-
er come to rest.
The two men were tied
for the lead as dusk began


its use over an intended pe-
riod of time.
Donald Fehr, current
union leader, said there is
currently only urine testing
that is administered if the
players are suspected of us-
ing performance-enhancing
drugs. HGH cannot be de-
tected in current urine test-


vestigating whether Roger
Clemens lied to Congress
when he denied taking per-
formance-enhancing drugs.
FBI agents in Washington
opened the case a little more
than two weeks after Clem-
ens and Brian McNamee,
his former personal trainer,


to bring family members
and friends to the Legends
Basketball Game later that
evening to watch them per-
form alongside the Indiana
Pacemates.

The Legends Game,
starting at 6:30 p.m., will
feature former greats De-
vonne Fields, Robert Ridge-
way, Ahmal Campbell, and
legendary coaches Gordon
Brock and Mitch Jackson.
The Legends will be play-
ing against the graduating
seniors from local area high
schools, Ponce De Leon,
Paxton, Freeport, Walton,


to settle over the course.
Calcavecchia hit the ball
into a greenside bunker at
the par-3 15th, and his shot
From the sand looked to be
all it would take to force Els
into second.
But the ball didn't want
to stop and it finally rested
on a rock ledge and Cal-
cavecchia knew what he had
to do. He picked up the ball
and chucked it into the wa-
ter and settled for a double
bogey.
That action shoved Els
into the lead and ultimately
into the winner's circle. He
walked away with $990,000
for his 16th career PGA
Tour victory

Tganging the face of education in Walton County


According to the State
of Florida's Ready-to-Work
program, the trend in the
workforce has shifted to
knowledge-base, making it
necessary for youth to not
only have knowledge but
how to apply the knowledge.
Walton County School Dis-
trict's Walton Career De-
velopment Center focuses
on real-life application of
knowledge gained in a class-
room setting to high school
students.
"We're really an applica-
tion for all students," said
WCDC Principal Mike Da-
vis. "We offer hands-on
experience while teaching
academics that prepare stu-
dents for college and skills
that will take them directly
into the workforce."
The WCDC is literally
changing the face of educa-
tion in Walton County with
the new trend of magnet ca-
reer academies. Currently,
magnet career academies
are offered for intense study
in architecture and engi-
neering design and health
sciences. These academies
provide an opportunity to
Concentrate on a theme of
interest that is infused with
rigorous, relevant academic
curriculum with hands-on
learning experience to truly
apply classroom knowledge.
The academy model is dif-
ferent from other career ed-
ucation delivery systems in
that the career theme is in-
tegrated into the academic
coursework.
For some time, career
education curriculum has
provided students with not
only the opportunity, but
also the requirement, to
effectively use academic
skills. This model provides
both the rigor and the rel-
evance for the high school
student by the use of select-
ed career education themes
in the academic units. For
example, students who are
selected for allied health
sciences pathway academy
will not only learn general
-algebra concepts- ands- con-
structs with variables and
equations, they will work
with these formulas in the
real world setting of health
care. In this way, an allied
health student may be solv-
ing equations related to ap-
propriate medication dos-
ages or radiation dosages
for patients, in algebra 1
course.
A student selected for the
architecture. and engineer-
ing design program may
work on problems related to
rainfall and moisture perco-
lation rates relevant to how
to most effectively construct
a drainage pond in a housing
development, in a calculus
course. The high school stu-
dent is able to participate in
this learning environment
in an integrated way that
is not usually experienced
until graduate school. Re-
search indicates that this is
an effective model to change
the, high school experience
for students, to really en-
gage them in learning, be-
cause it provides challenges
with support to succeed,
thus better preparing the
students for life after high
school, whether college or
career.
Walton Career Devel-
opment Center is also a
Florida Ready to Work site
where students not only
have hands-on learning for
application of knowledge
but also the opportunity to
learn professionalism and

it takes the guesswork out
of hiring, saving time and
money. Florida Ready to

Walton earns 5-3 win at Ponce de Loen


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves scored
two runs in the top of the
seventh inning on the road
at Ponce de Leon to pull out
a 5-3 victory over their area
rival.
The Braves and the Pi-
rates played the first three
innings to a scoreless tie be-
fore PDL scratched across
a run in the bottom of the
fourth inning using a pair
of errors to plate a run for a


1-0 lead. Walton responded
with two runs in the fifth
inning as Issac Jackson
singled in Liam Miller and
Adrian Hollingsworth who
had reached via an error
and a single.
Walton's lead did not last
long. The Pirates jumped
back in front by plating two
runs in the bottom of the
inning as Walton starter
Donnie Hicks hit Paul Grif-
fin and walked Ryan Yates


to put on a pair of runners.
Ryan Varner delivered an
RBI-single to tie the game,
then Caylon Friend was
hit by Hicks with the bases
loaded to give PDL a 3-2 ad-
vantage. Hicks got a fly ball
to leftfield out of Brandon
Howell to end the inning
with the bases loaded.
Walton tied the game in
the sixth inning as three
consecutive singles plated
a run as Hicks recorded the
RBI to tie the game at 3-3.
James Towery took over
on the mound for Walton in
the sixth inning and allowed
no damage despite a throw-
ing error that put a runner


on base.
Walton got to Varner,
vwho pitched the first six in-
nings before running into
trouble after recording the
first out in the seventh, as
a single and an error put
a pair of Walton runners
on base. Brock Bishop was
called on in relief and un-
corked a wild pitch that al-
lowed the Braves' base-run-
ners to move to second and
third. Shadier Roehm then
delivered a Texas Leaguer
behind the first base bag
that PDL second baseman
Joesph Arrant could not
come up with on a diving at-
tempt. Arrant had the ball


in his glove, but when he
hit the ground it jarred out,
allowing Josh Kennemur to
score and Roehm to reach
base safely. Sean Carter fol-
lowed with a sacrifice fly as
Walton took a 5-3 lead to the
bottom of the seventh.

Towery allowed a lead-
off double to Brock Bishop
as Kennemur got turned
around in leftfield, but set-
tled down to record strike-
outs on the next two batters,
then get a deep fly ball from
Caylon Friend to rightfield-
er Colton Campbell to end
the game.
Game Notes: Walton was
scheduled to play PDL in
DeFuniak Springs on Feb-


ruary 22, but rain washed
out the contest. The two
teams may not be able to
make up the game, depend-
ing on each having similar
open dates later this year.
Walton (3-1) faces an im-
portant district game at
Northview (2-4) on Friday
with Sean Carter likely to
take the mound against Jeff
Price for the Chiefs. Price
beat Walton 2-1 to end the
Braves season in the district
tournament last school year.
PDL (3-1) beat Altha 15-5
on Saturday to give Altha
their first loss of the season.
The Pirates are scheduled to
host Pensacola Christian at
home on Friday in a district
contest at 6 p.m.


WALTON'S JAMES TOWERY(18) gets congratulated by
teammate Derrick Roberts(12) after recording the win in re-
lief for the Braves in a 5-3 victory over PDL.


PONCE DE LEON'S RYAN VARNER had an RBI single
and pitched 6.1 innings for the Pirates despite taking the
5-3 loss to Walton on Friday night.


CURTIS MILLER(RIGHT) WON the Carrington Super
Series tennis tournament held at the .Pensacola Racquet
Club in mid-February w th a 6-3, 6-4 victory over top-seeded
Jake Holland of Gulf Breeze. Miller, a 16-year old who plays
on the Walton boys tennis team, is 4-0 in singles matches for
the Braves this season.

"Blithe

Spirit" gets

a happy

ending at

Seaside

Rep
By BRUCE COLLIER
Last fall's controversy
came to a safe landing last
weekend at the Rep Theatre
in Seaside, with a skillfully
directed and remarkably
polished high school pro-
duction of Noel Coward's
"Blithe Spirit," staged by
special arrangement with
the Rep's artistic director
Craige Hoover, and directed
by Rep Associate Director
Kevin Boyle.
Boyle admitted he had
worked his South Walton
High School (SWHS) cast
and crew vigorously, logging
35 hours during the week of
the opening.
The production was
scheduled to be presented
last fall at SWHS, only to
be scrubbed following con-
tent-based objections from
members of the community.
Boyle said "it only took three
phone calls" to the Rep for
the show to be given a spot
in the theater's 2008 sea-
son. The Rep, which gener-
ally produces adult-themed
plays with professional ac-
tors, used this production
to launch its student intern-
ship program. Receipts from
the production have been
earmarked to fund the pro-
gram, intended to run year-
round.
The show's run was origi-
nally scheduled at the Rep
for Feb. 27, 28, and 29. Re-
sponse virtually full hous-
es every night prompted
Hoover to add a March 1
performance. Though Boyle
was director, his staff as-
sistant director, co-lighting
designers, production assis-
tant, scenic designer, and

County to seek $70,000 fine in court


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County has opted
to go to court over $70,000 in
citations in connection with
a code enforcement case,
with the aim of also compel-
ling owners to bring their
property into compliance
with county regulations.
Controversy over the
property, located on CR-
30A across from Adagio and
Seatown Properties in Blue
Mountain Beach, began on
Nov. 27, 2005. The 2.84-acre
property, owned by Mem-
phis-based Premier of 30A,
L.L.C., is located on Walton
County's Route 30A Scenic
Corridor. Walton County
Code Enforcement received
a complaint on that date
that the property, formerly
with native vegetation in
place, had just been clear-
cut. The county's position
has been that this violated
the Walton County Land
Development Code and
Comprehensive Plan.
On Dec. 6, 2006, Walton


County Code Enforcement
placed a stop work order
on the property stating,
"You have. cleared property
without obtaining a clearing
permit. All activities must
cease immediately."
.The Walton County Land
Development Code man-
dates preservation of exist-
ing vegetation on properties
located on that scenic -cor-
ridor "as part of an overall
landscape plan" when those
properties are developed.
The Walton County
Comprehensive Plan also
requires a 20-foot setback
from the right-of-way on
the CR-30A scenic corridor,
within which "native vege-
tation shall be maintained."
The county began to assess
$500-per-day fines in con-
nection with alleged viola-
tions on the property on
Nov. 29, 2005.

ance issues, in 2006 Walton

Each year the sea turtles
of Walton County begin an
incredible journey over open
ocean to lay their eggs on the
very beach where they were
born. How they find Walton
County from as far away as
the Western Atlantic is one
of the many wondrous mys-
teries of this ancient crea-
ture.
The South Walton Com-
munity Council will pres-
ent a public forum on local


sea turtles on Wednesday,
March 19, at 7 p.m. at the
Coastal Branch Library.
There will be a film, fol-
lowed by a presentation by
Lorna Patrick, a biologist
with U. S. Fish and Wild-
life, and Sharon Maxwell
of the South Walton Turtle
Watch.
Insight into the world of
these threatened and en-
dangered sea turtles will in-
clude what they eat, criteria


for nesting, how long they
live (they've been around for
145 million years), and what
they do when they aren't
building nests on Walton's
white sand beaches.
This program is one of a
series of educational and en-
tertaining forums presented
to the public free of charge
by SWCC.

For more information,
call Ella Caro, 231-6038.


County reached an. agree-
ment with the owners of the
property for restoration of a.
portion of the ,native scrub
pine plant community on
the site. A first effort at re-
planting was unsuccessful,
with the wrong vegetation
being planted.
A revised restoration
plan was developed, and in
May 2007 Walton County
Environmental Manager
Billy McKee reported that
replanting according to that
plan had been completed as
required within the scenic
corridor vegetative buffer.
McKee stated that past fines
in connection with the viola-
tion were still outstanding
at that time. However, he
directed suspension of the
daily fines, contingent on
completion of the restora-
tion within 60 days.
A temporary power pole
had been put in place to as-
sist irrigation of the plants
on the still-undeveloped
property, and the owners
assured the county that the
plantings would be main-
tained and irrigated until
established.
However, in Dec. 2007,
McKee stated in a memo
to Buddy Wright of Walton
County Code Enforcement
that he had visited the site
and had observed a large
number of the plant mate-
rials "severely distressed,
dead or dying," and in need
of replacement with healthy
plants.
"The irrigation system
has been damaged as evi-
denced by a broken water
line and should be repaired,"
McKee added. He called for
contact with the owners and
advising them "that this is-
sue needs to be resolved."
At the end of April 2007,
McKee signified in a memo
that "the restoration plan
has been implemented to
our satisfaction." He stated
that the owners had agreed
to irrigate and maintain the
new vegetation. "In addi-
tion, additional plantings
will be required when the
property is developed," Mc-
Kee added.
However, by Jan. 2008,
McKee reported in a memo
to Walton County Code En-
forcement Coordinator Kev-
in Hargett, "The restored
vegetation at the Premier


30A parcel...is not being
maintained and a large per-
Centage appears to be dead
or nearly dead.'
"Some time, ago we
reached an agreement with
the owners," McKee contin-
ued, "that in order to be con-
sidered in compliance with
the initial Code Enforce-
ment case, the restored veg-
etation would be irrigated
and maintained for survival.
This is clearly not the case."
McKee called for reopening
the code enforcement case
and contacting the owners
to let them know the county
considered them out of com-
pliance.
With unpaid fines for al-
leged violations on the prop-
erty having been calculated
at $70,000, Lynn Hoshihara
of the Office of the County
Attorney sought direction
from the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) on Feb. 26.
Hoshihara reported the
property as still being out of
compliance. She presented
the commissioners with the
two options for enforcement
in connection with the al-
leged violations: "1) direct
enforcement through the
county court to enforce the
previously-issued citations,
or 2) forego the citations and
request a hearing before the
(Walton County Code En-
forcement Board), which
may impose civil penalties


as prescribed by law."
Local attorney Rick Peter-
man was present on behalf
of three of the property own-
ers. He revealed that the
owners he represents are
currently initiating litiga-
tion against the owner re-
sponsible "for denuding the
property."
Peterman referenced an
irrigation problem on the
property that had impacted
the success of the restora-
tion work. He urged the
commissioners to give the
owners he represents the
opportunity to show that
they can restore the vegeta-
tion.
"We're .just downright
tired of it," said District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows. She added that, in
these times of severe budget
limitations, it is the county's
responsibility "to collect ev-
ery outstanding debt." Her
recommendation was to take
the matter to county court
and "see what happens."
District 4 Sara Comander
emphasized the importance
of also ensuring code com-
pliance on the property in
addition to pursuing collec-
tion of the fines. Meadows
agreed. She moved to both
pursue the fines in county
court and continue to en-
force vegetative restoration
on the property per code re-
quirements. Her motion was
approved unanimously.

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


Time your shQwer to keep it under 5 minutes.
You'll save up to 100 gallons a month.


When doing laundry, match the water level to
the size of the load.


Teach your children to turn the faucet off tightly
after each use.


Make sure you know where your master water
shut-off valve is located. This could save gallons
of water and damage to your home if a pipe were
to burst.


Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while
you wash your car and save more than 100 gal-
ions.


Encourage your friends and nieghbors to be part
of a water-conscious community.


Choose new water-saving appliances, like wash-
ing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.


Encourage your school system and local gov-
ernment to help develop and promote a water
conservation ethic among children and adults.

Civil War novelist speaks to Prime Time gathering


By JEFFREY POWELL
With standing-room only,
local author Dan Wallis ad-
dressed approximately 120
people on Feb. 27, at the
Coastal Branch Library
in Santa Rosa Beach. The
gathering was the eighth of
10 installments of the Prime
Time program sponsored by
the library.
Wallis discussed his
historical novel "Burnin'
Daylight," along with less-
er-known details of the
American Civil War.
Although Wallis was al-
ways curious about Ameri-
can history, his interest was
piqued when he inherited
some of his great-grandfa-
ther's belongings.
"After serving in the Navy
during the Korean conflict


and in possession of my
great-grandfather's belong-
ings I just had to know more
about him," Wallis said.
Wallis' great-grandfa-
ther, John Wallis, joined
the Union army at Fort
Madison, Iowa. He was a
private in Company E 19th
Iowa regiment which later
became a part of General
Grant's Army of the Fron-
tier. After seeing action at
Pea Ridge in Arkansas and
in other western theater
battles he was captured by
Confederate forces and in-
terned at Camp Ford in Ty-
ler, Texas. After spending
ten months in prison he was
exchanged and pardoned.
Among the items Wallis
inherited from his great-
grandfather was a 1862


Walton County

By WALTON COUNTY CITIZEN SERVICES


Springfield rifle and bayo-
net along with brass buttons
and a buckle.
Although his book is not
biographical in nature he
does use his vast knowledge
of the period to accentuate
his writing.
"I did not start out to
write a book," said Wallis.
"But after my father said
my writing would make a
damn good movie with Tom
Selleck as the lead charac-
ter it was impossible for me
to stop writing."
"Burnin' Daylight" is a
novel about two soldiers,
one Union, one Confederate,


that have had enough of war
after the bloody battle of
Shiloh, TN. The book chron-

Market.
Artists from all across
the region and nation,
make their way to
Rosemary Beach for the
first of three weekend
events. Now celebrating
10 years of the market,
more and more locals
have discovered Rosemary
Beach and what all the
fuss is about.
On that same weekend,
the Cultural Arts
Association presents their
annual ArtsQuest Fine
Arts Festival event at
Baytowne Wharf. A week-
long roster of events takes
place throughout Walton
County that include
parties, student art
shows, concerts, fashion
shows and then of course
the arts festival that
weekend on the grounds
of Baytowne Wharf.

ArtsQuest artists, much
like those participating in
:the market at t I a. iry
Beach, travel from all over
the nation to be a part of
the event. From potters
and painters, to jewelry
designers and stained
glass makers, they can be
found at ArtsQuest.
Now there are
numerous other events
that are taking place
throughout the next few
months, along the
Emerald Coast. From car
shows and bike swaps to
jazz festivals and from art
shows to local theater,
there is no shortage of
cultural activities.
No matter if the tourists
that make this area their
home for a week or so and
seem to know all about
our piece of paradise,
remember that they are
here for just a short
period of time and that we
call this place home, With
that being said, step out
your backdoor and enjoy
all that this area has to
offer!


THIS PINK 59 CADDY was all the rage and won the People's Choice at last year's car
show. It, and more than 50 other vehicles return on March 29 to Rosemary Beach for the
Seventh annual Rt. 30AAntique and Vintage Car Show.

ENDING

stage manager were all
students at SWHS.
Coward was an acknowl-
edged master of the dry,
ultra-sophisticated humor
of the upper-class British,
particularly those in the
arts. "Blithe Spirit" is the
lightweight tale of Charles
and Ruth Condomine, re-
spectively played by Tay-
lor Queen and K.C. Shaf-
fer. Charles is a successful
novelist, who invites a local
"medium" to his home for
a seance, intending to milk
the spiritualist for mate-
rial to use in his next book.
Neither the Condomines
nor their dinner guests, Dr.
and Mrs. Bradman (played
by Jonathari Howard and
Clarise Burkett), have the


CONTINUED FROM FRONT


slightest belief in spiritual-
ism. They think it will all be
a lark, and Charles will get
plenty of amusing material.
Enter the medium, Ma-
dame Arcati, played by Ken-
dall McNay. Arcati is cheer-
fully batty, but dead-serious
about her work, and her
skill as a connection to "the
other side." An after-dinner
seance is held. It appears to
be a bust, until the "arrival"
of Charles' late first wife,
Elvira (Meredith Kelly).
Charles alone can see her
ghost, and she has plans of
her own. Thereon hangs the
play.
"Blithe Spirit" was writ-
ten in the 1940s. Along with
its American counterpart,
Joseph Kesselring's "Arsenic


and Old Lace," it aimed to
divert war-weary audiences
with over-the-top fantasy
humor. Coward's skill with
verbal swordplay is in good
form here. Wisely, Boyle
chose to downplay the Brit-
ish accents, instead drilling
his young players in clarity
of diction and swiftness of
pace. The result conveyed
the flavor of Coward, with-
out any struggling to master
British pronunciation and
contrasting accents, always
a challenge to American ac-
tors when tackling British
comedy.
Performances were uni-
formly solid, and the physi-
cal pace kept up with the
dialogue. As Charles, Queen
managed both sarcasm and


exasperation, handling
the scenes where he has to .
speak both to his living wife
and the "invisible" Elvira
with smoothness. Shaffer
made a fine straight-wom-
an as Ruth, straddling the
fence between sympathy for
her "hag-ridden" husband
and jealous irritation at
her ghostly competition. As
the Bradmans, Howard and
Burkett came off as a sort of
Brit Fred and Ethel Mertz,
bickering unself-conscious-
ly while stolidly muddling
through the craziness of it
all. Kelly played Elvira like
a house cat, the kind that
cuddles up for attention,
only to bat the hand that
strokes her.
As Arcati, McNay had a
natural comic instinct and
a level of comfort onstage
unusual for an actress so
young. Eclectically dressed,


from Indian forehead-jew-
el to green gumboots, she
chirped her way through the
mounting nonsense, looking
not unlike a young Angela
Lansbury. Brianna Wein-
traub made the most of an
on-again, off-again role as
Edith, the maid. Forever
on'the move and anxious to
please her employers, she
stayed in one place only
when compelled. Weintraub
also co-designed the lights.
Set, costumes and lights
gave the actors the space
and support they, and the
play, deserved.
After the show, the Boyle
and his cast sat onstage and
answered questions from
the audience. "The contro-
versy" was briefly discussed,
but most audience members
- a mix of family, friends,
and Rep regulars seemed
more interested in how the


actors felt to be working in a
professional theater setting.
"It's great to do a show
without edits," said one ac-
tress, referring to the oc-
casional profanities and
"adult" references in the
play, as well the characters'
not-infrequent resort to
martinis and brandy under
stress. "It would have been
lemonade and tea if we had
done it at school," she add-
ed. Others spoke of the rig-
orous rehearsal schedules.
All expressed satisfaction at
how fine a production they

of "Sustainable Urbanism,"
is an award-winning au-
thor, the designer of a beau-
tiful new courtyard home in
Alys Beach, and an archi-

to break down barriers be-

focused urbanists. His book
asserts that we need a radi-
cal change in how we live,
not just for the health of our
planet, but for ourselves.
