Imfeld fires back at


Sheriff Johnson


By ALICIA LEONARD
Regarding Walton Coun-
ty Sheriff Ralph Johnson's
exclusive Herald interview
last week about his annu-
al budget, Walton County
Finance Director William
Imfeld requested to be in-
terviewed by the Herald to
"correct the record."


JANE SWIFTfrom CH2MHILL OMIpresented the 2007
annual report on the city's water service. She noted that dur-
ing one two-month period, the city had lost 40 percent of its
water supply.


DFS Council to


buy more land


for airport


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council moved forward
in their plan of making the
municipal airport more
flyer-friendly by approving
unanimously to purchase
two four-acre parcels on the
west end of the airport to
extend the airport runway.
The two parcels will be sold
to the city for $45,000 each.
Once the runway has been
extended, more airport traf-
fic is expected to follow, due


to the fact that pilots must
pay almost double in insur-
ance fees in most. instances
to land on a runway that is
under 5,000 feet.
Councilman James Huff-
man made the motion and
Councilman Henry Ennis
Sr. seconded the motion.
Huffman told other Council
members, "I think it's im-
portant that we move ahead
with this purchase and start

Imfeld began the inter-
view by saying, "I need to
say something to reflect
some prior statements on
the 911 system and a con-
versation surrounding that
system that just isn't accu-
rate. In July 2007, before a

School Board looks



at sports dollars


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton County
School Board met on March
4 to handle an agenda that
included purchasing prop-
erty, discussing whether to
borrow money to begin con-
struction of another school,
reassessing the amount of
funding spent on school ath-
letics and the progress of
construction on current new
school facilities.
Jim McCall, chief finan-
cial officer for the Walton
County School District,
presented the board with
financial data from school
athletic programs from
throughout the county in
regards to costs and income
to run those programs. The
.data did not include salaries
for personnel and supple-
ments, but focused on how
the schools generate income
through ticket sales, fund-
raisers and donations ver-
sus the costs expended to


fund the sports at the vari-
ous schools. Board members
have been attempting to rein
in approved fundraisers, but
were willing to look at pro-
viding additional funds to
athletic programs to help
relieve some of the schools'
financial burdens. '
Board members discussed
the idea of funding for the
proposed Emerald Coast
Middle School, which would
require the district to borrow
money to start the process if
the board wished to advance
the construction of the facil-
ity in the near future. After
some discussion, the board
decided to take no action
at this time as the general.
feeling among members was
that they should not borrow
money as long as the district
could budget and pay for fa-
cilities without having to do
so.
Jim McCall also present-
ed to the board members a


plan on the viability of using
P-cards, a type of credit card
that can be used for many
types of purchases and are
common practice in many
school districts, after the
district requests proposals
from all interested banks in
Walton County. Using this
type of card would save the
district 1 percent on quali-
fying purchases, which can
be quite large at times. The
board agreed with the idea
by a 5-0 vote.
Board members voted
to accept a proposal to buy
playground equipment for
the new Mossy Head School
that is slated to open its
doors this August.
Board members also ap-
proved the purchase of a
small parcel of land that
is adjacent to the Tivoli
Administrative Complex
from Miss Lillie Sledge in

Tammy Smith of Van R. Butler Elementary School


By BRUCE COLLIER
Van R. Butler Elementa-
ry School's Principal Tammy
Smith is in her third year at
Butler. She came there from
Freeport Elementary, where
she served as assistant prin-
cipal for six years. She also
taught for 16 years at Free-
port, Maude Saunders, and
Bay. Elementary schools.
"My passion is elementary
school," she says.
Smith has a bachelor's
degree in early childhood
education from Florida State
University, and a master's
degree in educational lead-
ership from University of
West Florida. Some of her
passion may also be inher-
ited. "I come from an edu-
cation family." Her father
and grandfather were both
on the county school board
and her mother worked as
a teacher's aide at West De-
Funiak Elementary School.
Smith concentrated on
taking courses that would
enable her to receive cer-
tification in' educational
leadership, a prerequisite
for school administrators.
Even so, she believes that
the best preparation for a
principal's job is teaching.
Teaching entails more
duties these days, says
Smith, with the new gov-
ernment-mandated guide-
lines and rules on student
accountability. Though she
does not agree that teachers


PRINCIPAL TAMMY SMITH in her office at Van R. But-
ler Elementary School.


have been put into the role
of surrogate parents, teach-
ers are expected to gener-
ate more data for oversight.
The FCAT remains a major
yearly concern, even for the
primary grades. In the class-
room, "the rubber meets the


road," says Smith. Van R.
Butler's most recent FCAT
score was "A" level.
Van R. Butler Elemen-
tary has 653 students, "as
of yesterday," says Smith,
from pre-kindergarten to
fifth grade. Enrollment fig-


ures change weekly, with
families moving in and out.
Smith attributes this to the
fluctuation of the area's real
estate market and construc-
tion business. Many of her
students come from families
in the food service industry
- a particularly volatile field
- and parents often have to
move with little notice for
job-related reasons.
The students' curriculum
follows the Florida guide-
lines, including art, music,
physical education, and an
emphasis on reading, which
is "huge" in early years, says
Smith. Specialized classes
target both gifted students
and those with remedial
needs. Smith estimates that
around 19 Van R. Butler
students speak English as a
second language. Their first
languages include Spanish,
Vietnamese, and the dialect
of Belize. Other students,
from South Africa, Germany
and Holland, speak English
as well as their native lan-
guages.
Smith's "typical day" be-
gins at 7:30 a.m., generally
ending at 4:30 or 5 p.m. She
always works a few hours
at home, answering e-mail,
and takes time on Sunday
afternoons to prepare for
the coming week. Like most
principals, she has an office,
but spends a great deal of
time walking the halls, do-
ing lunchroom duty, and


looking in on classes, the
media center, and the gym.
"I get to be everywhere," she
says. The school's mission,
says Smith, is "keeping a
safe, orderly, structured
environment," in which stu-
dents can learn. "They are
more willing to learn when
they feel safe."
Van R. Butler students
feel safe, but they may also
feel a little cramped. Smith
says that "more .space"
would be at the top of her
wish-list for improvements.
The class-size reduction
laws have led to crowding.
Even so, most of her stu-
dents many of whom are
not originally from Walton
County tell Smith "it's the
best school."
When not learning their
lessons, Van R. Butler stu-
dents can participate in
Junior Beta Club, student
council, remedial and en-
richment classes, and tu-
toring in math and writing.
Sports are overseen by the
county recreation depart-
ment. In addition to an ac-
tive PTO, Van R. Butler has
a program called "Adopt
a Classroom," in which
area businesses contribute
money to teachers to fund
necessary supplies for their
students. Smith applauds
the "amazing parental and
community support" she re-
ceives.
"Thanks!" she says.

helps "Construction Junction"


By ALICIA LEONARD
"It's a catch-22 situation.
We put it to the people and
they chose to elect, but what
do we do if no one will run?"
lamented DeFuniak Springs
City Councilman James Cof-
field over the vacancy in the
city clerk position. Coffield
adds, "I think the salary
would need to be updated
as well if it covers more job
duties than just keeping the
minutes."
Mayor Harold Carpenter
agreed, 'I think we need a
city clerk, appointed or elect-
ed. Most cities have a city
clerk and a finance director.
If the duties that were given
to a city clerk would make
that job a full-time position,
then the salary should re-
flect that as well."
Council member Don
Harrison hopes voters will
go toward making the posi-
tion an appointed one this
time on the ballot. Harri-
son explains, "I think of an
elected .pgsitiop as being


positions that are decision
making positions. The clerk
now is more of a clerical po-
sition. Maybe someone could
be appointed to do any extra
duties that may fall under
the clerk's position and we
could compensate that em-
ployee if they are already
on staff if our voters see
to changing it. The salary
should definitely be in line
with the amount of job du-
ties."
Councilman Henry En-
nis Sr. said, "The people
spoke with their vote and
they want to have an elect-
ed clerk. I don't think the
pay is bad, as long as they
are just taking minutes and
typing them up. If they do
more, then, we have to look
at the pay."
Councilman James Huff-
man told the Herald, "Times
have changed. With technol-
ogy and computers, a per-
son doesn't spend as much
time as they use to to write
up minutes. I mean, I can't


remember the last time I
saw somebody using a type-
writer. I have mixed feel-
ing about it though, as far
as this position, but I feel
it needs to be addressed. I
don't think there is enough
there to warrant a full-time
position. Appointed or elect-
ed? I feel that decision is
best left up to the people to
decide."
Councilman Wayne Gra-
ham echoed the sentiments
of his fellow council mem-
bers, "I think it's best left up
to the people to decide and
then we will take it from
there."
The vote will come be-
fore the citizens again about
whether to keep the position
elected or to make the posi-
tion appointed by referen-
dum on this year's city bal-
lot. Absentee voting for this
issue will start March 17-
April 8. Election will be held
on April 8 at the DeFuniak
Springs Community Center
from 7 a.m. till 7 p.m.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 13,2008

PdLHS vs. ACLU


continues


By ALICIA LEONARD
Although some area news
media reported this week
that, "It appears the prin-
cipal of Ponce de Leon High
School is off the hook in a
federal lawsuit, at least for
now," Benjamin Stevenson
attorney for the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU) says all is not as it
appears.
Stevenson said, "This was
just a redundancy removed
from the case. We are suing
the school board in this case
and since David Davis, as
principal, is an employee of
Ponce De Leon High School,
we were in essence suing
the board twice."
A motion dismissing Da-
vis from a lawsuit filed by
a student was approved
by federal Judge Richard
Smoak. The suit involves
alleged harassment of a les-
bian student on campus.


Stevenson also told the
Herald that the ACLU had
agreed to present all the
facts of the case at trial in-
stead of a pre-trial hear-
ing that had been proposed
earlier in the lawsuit. "We
filed for a motion to let the
student wear her rainbow t-
shirts, but the school board
said it would cause a disrup-
tion. We called for a hear-
ing on those issues, but the
board said it couldn't get the
necessary witnesses and in-
formation together in time
for the hearing, so we bro-
kered a deal to do our fact
finding and discovery now
and be ready for the trial
against the school board as
scheduled on May 12 and
13, 2008."
Smoak ruled that Gill-
man could amend her com-
plaint to sue Davis person-
ally.

COMMENTS


Four more years?
By RON KELLEY

Election Day is almost here. No, not the presidential
race, I mean for the city of DeFuniak Springs.
I hope it will draw the interest of city residents and be
hotly contested, but if it goes like last time, not a single
challenger will bother to show up and it will be over and
done with before anyone knows it even took place. That
would be a sad commentary.
Three city council seats are up for grabs. A lack of
challengers could be perceived, by those already in office,
as a strong vote of confidence; an affirmation that their
actions over the last few years have been in the town's best
interest and fully in keeping with the will and wishes of
the people.
How I wish that were true. However, an open forum last
week with business people from all over the city, hosted
by the DeFuniak Springs Business and Professional
Association (DBPA), tells a much different tale.
One thing that all can agree on is, as go the businesses
in DeFuniak Springs, so goes the town. If the businesses
can't survive and grow and if we fail to attract new stores,
offices and industries, the town will soon fall into decay
and stagnation.
Well, among the many concerns voiced by the store
owners and business managers at the meeting, one of the
biggest involved the impact fees passed earlier this year by
the city council. Generally, impact fees are levied by large
cities or communities who are overwhelmed by development
and have no hope of keeping up with infrastructure needs
that comes from city taxes and utilities.
Obviously, that could hardly be said to describe DeFuniak
Springs. The city's boundaries have barely changed in 50
years and its population hasn't grown by hardly a thousand
people in decades.
What many of those store owners and business
managers say is that DeFuniak Springs appears to actively
discourage new businesses, as well as any expansion
of existing businesses. They say the only thing that is
"overwhelming" in the last two years is the rash of high-
paying administration jobs for services that are hardly
needed and which have emptied out the city's cash reserves
so carefully set aside by the previous city manager.
Don't even ask me what was said about the code
enforcement officer's alleged practice of arriving on the
scene and shouting threats about having "everyone thrown
in jail immediately." Haven't we been told repeatedly that
code enforcement is "complaint-driven" only? Hmmm.
:Most of the store owners andl business managers
were shocked to discover that the owner of the neat and
attractive, new car wash and laundromat on the corner of
U.S. 331 and Bruce Avenue had to pay more than $80,000 in
impact fees, just for the pleasure of opening a new business
in DeFuniak Springs. That was in addition to the cost of
the usual fees and permits, the designs and architectural
plans, the cost of construction, business machinery and
equipment, and operating capital for the first year. If I
told you what the new Lowe's Home Improvement Store,
currently under construction on U.S. 331, is going to have
to cough up in impact fees, you'd faint.
Does that kind of business philosophy attract or
encourage new businesses? Does the city council really
want to create jobs and industry to keep our children from
having to grow up and leave home to find work or is that
just so much lip-service without any real conviction?
DBPA folk heard a plethora of horror stories involving
inconsistent, sometimes unintelligible interpretations
and enforcement of city ordinances, sign and landscaping
restrictions so tight that some prospective businesses
simply abandoned their plans to locate here and moved to
other, more business-friendly towns and counties.
We might ask why these aggrieved business leaders
don't lobby their city council about these and other make-
or-break issues. Business leaders at the DBPA meeting
say that it is because, almost without exception, they each
live just outside the city limits and have no individual
voting rights and no opportunity to run for a city council
seat a fact, they say, that city officials are not shy about
reminding them.
Well, there's been a lot of hot air circulating in the
national news about "voting for a change." You may not
know it, but qualifying time for city elections began this
week and ends Friday. Despite not being able to vote, these
same business leaders agree that they would fully support
any new candidate, especially one who has actually operated
a commercial business or storefront and who understands
the concept of a business-friendly community.. They also
promise to encourage their friends, customers and clients
to turn out and vote on April 8 in support of better business
practices.
It's one thing to talk about change. It's another to make
it happen. Personally, after serious problems with the city
cemetery, the Chautauqua building, and the council and
city staffs attitude toward the very businesses that keep
the city alive, I think we should take back our town.
Who will step up and become our next city councilmen?
It will take a little courage, but as Mother Teresa said, "To
have courage for whatever comes in life everything lies in
that."


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2008


*LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor,
I read with both amusement and amazement the com-
ments regarding Chautauqua by Ms. Ann Robinson in
her recent letter to the assistant editor of the DeFuniak
Springs Herald. Throughout the past year I have remained
silent and gracious, as both myself and the organization
I founded have been publicly and relentlessly castigated.
However, I cannot allow to let stand, the many erroneous
remarks stated in this recent communication.
At no time have I ever stated the Florida Chautauqua
Center, Inc. would produce no further events in DeFuniak
Springs. That remains as true now as it was two years ago
when Ms. Robinson was installed as president of the Flori-
da Chautauqua Center, Inc. At that time, I announced my
retirement as president of the organization, but remained
chairman of the board and continue in that role today. De-
spite the fact that I am no longer a full-time resident of
DeFuniak Springs, I have continued to support the orga-
nization financially in a very significant way. That alone
demonstrated a real commitment to both the town I have
loved so dearly for so long and to the Chautauqua that I
love and revived 13 years ago.
Ms. Robinson's statement that she felt a "moral" obli-
gation to form her own organization could not have been
based on any statements by me or my board. We have never
stated that we planned to discontinue our Chautauqua ac-
tivities in DeFuniak Springs. The facts are -that Ms. Robin-
son formed her own organization while j.te acknowledged,
sitting president of Florida Chautauqua Center, Inc. She
did so clandestinely, without our knowledge or participa-
tion. Therefore, I fail to understand the use of "moral" in
the context used.
I am, indeed, pleased that Ms. Robinson has visited the
New York Chautauqua for many summers. So have I and
consider many of the New York Chautauqua Institution
Trustees as personal friends. In fact, one of the trustees
lives near me at my second home in California and we of-
ten chat about the Chautauquas in both DeFuniak Springs
and New York. Unfortunately, the "Mother" Chautauqua
has become aware of the divisiveness created in Defuniak
Springs by Ms. Robinson's Florida Chautauqua Assembly,
Inc., and that does not reflect well on our community in any
way. In fact, in a letter dated October 31, 2007, the presi-
dent of the Chautauqua Institution refused the Robinson
invitation to attend their event.
At my invitation, the Network members of the New York
Chautauqua held its annual meeting in DeFuniak Springs
in 1996. I personally introduced Ms. Robinson to Chau-
tauqua officials at the time, and she graciously hosted the
chairman of the Department of Religion in her home. Other
officials stayed at my home and with other host families
in DeFuniak. Several of these officials have made repeated
visits to my home over the years. Through my close ac-
quaintance with New York Chautauqua officials, through
my attendance at the New York Chautauqua, and with my
experience in designing and implementing the Chautauqua
Assembly in DeFuniak Springs for the past 13 years, I con-
sider myself well versed in Chautauqua concepts and prin-
ciples.
I, too, encourage everyone to attend the Chautauqua In-
stitution: However, a great deal can be learned about the
organization, its officials, its goals, programming, etc. sim-
ply from viewing their website at www.ciweb.org.
I write this letter with great regret but complete sincer-
ity, in the belief that the people of DeFuniak Springs who
have supported Florida Chautauqua Center, -Inc. for the
past 13 years deserve to know the facts. Our organization
does not wish to engage in any sort of continuing controver-
sy, but we will always feel the need to defend out honor.
The Florida Chautauqua Center is alive and well in De-
Funiak Springs, and is proud to announce its fourteenth
season of quality programming. Out theme for 2009 is "A
Journey into Africa." We look forward to seeing all of you
there. As always, you may count on my continuing support
of our community and the Florida Chautauqua Center.

F. Diane Pickett,
Founder and Chairman of the Board
Florida Chautauqua Center, Inc.


Editor,
I have lived in this community for over 40 years and in
that time, I have reached out to the people in this town and
in this county I first worked with Diane Pickett during the
Elderhostel. The Ktruth is, our town was dying and people
iere moving away. Many things came from this; we had
art classes, tours of homes, Victorian balls and bus tours.
All this was to bring people back to our town to help it grow
and many of us worked long hard hours. There were a lot
of us from all walks of life, but it is important to get this
one point across, we worked as a team, we worked together.
That is when things started turn around and little by little
our town was growing. This was all led by Diane Pickett
and about 40 volunteers.
Thirteen years ago, we had the first Chautauqua Assem-
bly, patterned after the New York Chautauqua. Many of
the same people and some new ones put on the first Chau-
tauqua Assembly with Diane at the lead. No discord. Peo-
ple worked together and enjoyed the challenge.
I am sorry to have to say and I wish it were not so, but
after our 11th Assembly, discord began. People were placed
in keynote spots and total trust was placed in them. Then
the dishonest underhanded behavior began. A list of volun-
teers we used each year was stolen and the people who had
been told their names would not be given out were called.
Tell me how sad is it when we lose sight of the reason we do
the things we do. Is it for the town to help it grow and make
'it a better place for us all to live or is it for personal gain
or self image for a chosen few to enjoy? The latter is a trip
down destruction-lane, splitting this town apart along the
way. Who wants to be a part of a group of people like that,
not me?
I have prayed I would not be pushed to the point I would
have to write this letter. I do not mean harm to anyone, but
I just want our town reunited to work together and sit back
and watch it grow.
With God's help, I know it can happen.
Mary Vinson
DeFuniak Springs
Editor,
With sensitivity and love for our beaches, I am writing
about the disarming look they now have...with man-made
tracks over the entire width of the beach. These tracks are
truly ugly. The county supervises and controls our beaches
"from litter and dogs" with two-ton, four-wheel-drive, high-
way-designed trucks. They patrol back and forth, I believe,
twice a day.
The beach now looks like a highway. Wind does not cov-
er these tracks. High tide does not cover these tracks. The
sheriffs truck and the garbage truck do not use the same
route each time. They do not want to drive in the same deep
ruts, so with each passing they make new ones. The ruts
are now as-wide as a four-lane highway, all the way from
the dunes to the water line. The ruts are so deep in some
places that when, in February, my two, small three-year-
old granddaughters were leaning over and playing in the
sand, they were barely visible. Along came a large truck
and, with all my strength, I ran to their side to alert the
driver that two children were deep in the sand playing. I
was truly afraid they could have gone unseen and been ac-
cidentally nit.
This is not what our beaches should be about. The deep
ruts cannot possibly be conducive to helping the natural
habitat of the sea turtles. The back and forth traffic also
inhibits the natural re-seeding of our delicate sea oats, to
say nothing of small dunes that if left undisturbed, would
eventually build from blowing sand.
With continuous traffic of "service vehicles" will never
happen. Being one of the most beautiful beaches in north
America, maybe we should look to other beach communi-
ties and study their patrol and garbage vehicles. We con-
tinually hear about "protecting our beaches." This seems a
direct contrast to our ultimate goal.
Many national parks have a saying "Leave only your
footprints behind." If only we could say the same about the
beaches of south Walton.

Straughn inducted into Hall of Fame


By RON KELLEY
Paxton-native Alto
Staughn was recently hon-
ored as one of Florida's
great agriculturists and was
inducted into the state's Ag-
ricultural Hall of Fame at a
ceremony held at the Flori-
da State Fair in Tampa.
Dr. Straughn was person-
ally recognized along with
Pete Clemons, of Okeecho-
bee, Hugh English, of La-
belle, and Fritz Stein Jr.,
of Belle Glade, by Florida
Commissioner of Agricul-
ture Charles Bronson.


Dr. Straughn has been
involved in agricultural
research, education and
commercial farming for 50
years. Recognized as one of
Florida's most progressive
watermelon farmers, his
work with southern high-
bush blueberries helped
launch a $40 million-a-year
industry.
Born in Walton County in
1934 and a graduate of Pax-
ton High School, Straughn
credits former teacher and
school superintendent John
Baldwin with inspiring and


encouraging him to pursue
a life of farming and agricul-
tural research. After gradu-
ating with a master's de-
gree in animal science from
the University of Florida,
Straughn began working as
a UF/IFAS Extension agent
in Marion County. Three
years later, with the aid of a
Kellogg Fellowship, he went
to the University of Wiscon-
sin and obtained a doctor-
ate degree in Extension ad-
ministration in 1963. From
there, he returned to the
Florida and helped develop


statewide planning and re-
porting systems and imple-
mented the county program
review system.
While working for the
the Extension Service,
Straughn also built a suc-
cessful private cattle, farm-
ing and timber operation
covering over 2,000 acres
near Gainesville. He now
produces about one-third of
all the blueberries grown
in Florida and has helped
create markets where none
existed previously and pio-
neered new techniques and


technologies for producing
better blueberries and wa-
termelons.
Straughn is active in nu-
merous state and federal
agricultural agencies and
organizations and has pro-
vided financial support to
more than a dozen UF grad-
uate students and has cre-
ated endowment programs
for Extension 4-H faculty.
Straughn has also been
honored with the 1997 Co-


operator of the Year Award
by the Michigan Blueberry
Growers Association and
the 2005 Gamma Sigma
Delta Distinguished Service
to Agriculture Award.
He and his wife, Patrecia,
live in Waldo, and have two
grown daughters, Lynn and
Rita, and eight grandchil-
dren. His sister, Carol Bo-
land, is a resident of Walton
County.

The Walton County Pre-
vention Coalition (WCPC)
will hold its first Underage
Drinking Town Hall Meet-
ing at Freeport High School,

cent of the purchase will be

grant provided by the Flori-

sponsible for the remaining

amount.
' Jane Swift from CH2M
HILL OMI presented the
2007 annual report on the
city's water service. Two is-
sues that Swift brought up
before the Council were the
amount of unaccounted-for
water in last year's report,
gs well as the number of
lightning strikes the city's
pumps have taken in the
last year.
* A target goal according
tp Swift is to have no more
than 10 percent in unac-
&ounted water loss. Swift
told the Council, "We are
working diligently to not
see these types of numbers
ih next year's reports." The
charts Swift shared with
the Council shows the larg-
est percentage of loss, 40
percent, happened between
March and April of 2007,
with the loss being kept un-
der 20 percent since June
2007. Swift did not elaborate
on what actions were being
taken to correct the prob-
lem of losing vast amounts
of water, but' said that she is
working with the city public
works director and fire de-
partment.
' Swift did say that light-
ring strikes have been an
ihsue for the city's pump-
img stations. Well No. 1 was
struck three times in 2007,
making the replacement of
the pump and motor nec-
essary. Swift said, "Part of
the reason is it's our only
submersible station. We
may also being dealing with
electrical surges at that well
and are looking into getting
bids on surge protection for
this unit."
Gordon King from- the
Okaloosa Gas District pre-
sented his findings to the
Council on a proposed utility
easement. "The agreement


FROM FRONT

provides access to Okaloosa
Gas District proposed pipe-
lines along a proposed route
and within the City of DFS
service territory in Walton
County. This will be done
in exchange for an ease-
ment across the DeFuniak
Springs Airport property,
and/or city permits needed
along the proposed route of
the pipeline," according to
the purpose of agreement
letter provided by Okaloosa
Gas District. The Council
voted unanimously to ap-
prove the easement.
Leigh Morrison, director
of the new Life Enrichment
Senior Center, received
unanimous approval from
the Council for an inter-
local agreement regarding
the center. Morrison will
be requesting the same ap-
proval from the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners .(BCC) on
March 4. Three entities, the
BCC, the DeFuniak Springs
City Council and Tri County
Community Council, will be
responsible for the opera-
tional cost of the new cen-
ter.
Bob Jones, speaking for

velopment Grant (CBDG)


committee, presented a list
of the first group of eight re-
cipients to the Council. The
Council approved the appli-
cants unanimously. Jones
stated that three of the ap-
plicants would be receiving
new homes and the other
five were believed to be re-
habilitatable.
The Council approved
unanimously to approve a
renewal and resolution for
an agreement with FDOT.
The agreement will mean
the city will receive $44,153
to perform services such as
mowing, edging and litter
removal along areas inside
the city on U.S. 331and 90.
The new Boys and Girls
Club of the Emerald Coast
requested that a Council
member be appointed to
serve on its advisory com-
mittee. Don Harrison nomi-
nated Wayne Graham and
Graham accepted saying, "It
would be an honor to help
them out."
The second reading and
public hearing on amend-
ing the run-off election and
the referendum regarding
the city clerk positions be-
ing put on the ballot, was
unanimously approved. Vot-
ers will get a chance to voice

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 2008


Candace Farrior charged in November

death of Wilma Ott at local bar


On the night of Nov. 29,
2007, the DeFuniak Springs
Police began an investiga-
tion into the events sur-
rounding the death of Wil-
ma Ott, at the Oh Susanna
bar in DeFuniak Springs.
The investigation is now
complete and formal charg-


es have been filed against
the driver of the vehicle that
struck Ott.
Candace Marie Farrior
has been charged with leav-
ing the scene of an crash
involving death, leaving the
scene of a crash with prop-
erty damage, misrepresen-


station of insurance, failure
to report a crash to the au-
thorities and failure to ren-
der aid. She surrendered
herself to the DeFuniak
Springs Police on March 5,
where she was arrested and
transported to the Walton
County Jail. Her bond is set
at $25,000 dollars.
The investigation re-
vealed that Farrior was in-
volved in a physical alterca-
tion in the bar with a friend
of Ott. All parties were ad-
vised to leave the bar. Far-
rior had left the bar and
then returned to the park-
ing lot.
Verbal challenges to fight
reportedly continued to be
spoken by Farrior and Ott's
friend towards each other.
According to witnesses


and the subsequent inves-
tigation, a derogatory com-
ment was reportedly made
to Ott, who then went over
to Farrior's vehicle, climbed
into the window and began
to strike Farrior in the face.
Farrior then placed her ve-
hicle in reverse and began
to back up. Ott disengaged
from the vehicle and landed
face down on the asphalt
parking lot. Farrior contin-
ued to back up, running over
the left leg and buttocks of
Ott. Farrior then struck a
parked car, placed the ve-
hicle in and struck Ott in
the head as she exited the
parking lot. Farrior left the
scene and was located ap-
proximately one hour later
at her mother's home on Bob
Sikes Road.

LRC Services


working up a storm


From staff reports

LRC Services provides
a variety of meteorologi-
cal services along the Gulf
Coast. For the past sever-
al years, LRC Services has
been doing extensive work
resulting from Hurricanes
Charley, Dennis, Frances,
Ivan, Katrina, Jeanne and
Rita. The primary focus is
in determining the sequence
of events during each hur-
ricane and determining
whether the primary cause
of damage was from winds
or storm surge. This is called
"forensic meteorology".
LRC Services is an exten-
sion of the work that Rocco
Calaci has performed along
the Gulf Coast since 1995.
Calaci retired from the US
Air Force in 1990, where
he was a meteorologist for
21 years. After Hurricane
Opal, a friend of Calaci's
asked for assistance in a
lawsuit against an insur-
ance company for denying
a claim of damage from the
hurricane. One thing led to
another and Calaci began to
pursue a career in forensic


meteorology.
LRC Services is run by
Calaci and his wife, Leanne
Slay-Calaci, a DeFuniak
Springs native, and the
company is located in Mossy
Head. He has lived in the
area for 22 years and is a
designated hurricane expert
by the federal courts.
As both a consultant
and a forensic meteorolo-
gist, Calaci has provided
weather support services to
the White House, the NASA
space shuttle program, the
U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and
the U.S. Air Force. He also
worked with the meteoro-
logical agencies of Japan,
Thailand, the Netherlands
and Canada. Some of his
clients include the cities of
Waveland and Biloxi, Mis-
sissippi, and hundreds of
individual homeowners and
businesses.
Other services provided
by LRC Services are weath-
er research, weather moni-
toring systems and on-site
support. Currently, LRC
Services has developed a
weather monitoring network
to provide another layer of


data collection to improve
the accuracy of local weath-
er forecasting. This weather
monitoring network is an
excellent tool for cities and
town along the Gulf Coast
for a variety of reasons;
from better data resolution
to proving reliable records
after events such as hurri-
canes.
LRC Services also offers
a free preparedness briefing
for the upcoming hurricane
season. This is not the usual
"board-the-windows and
stock-up-on-supplies" brief-
ing. This provides home and
business owners a sequence
of steps to take to correctly,
effectively and quickly file a
damage claim due to a hur-
ricane.
The average insurance
settlement from Hurri-
cane Katrina took over 18
months and paid approxi-
mately $35,000 per claim.
Few people can re-build
their lives and homes with
only $35,000.

about LRC Services, call
(850) 830-8656.


IMFELD
FROM FRONT

the 911 system. I was asked
if there was any money to
cover the $300,000 needed.
I said there was probably
money that could be brought
in from the health care and
worker comp accounts.
These accounts don't fall
under the sheriffs budget-
ary control. I told Johnson
he could make a request of
the Board of County Com-
missioners and request the
public hearing; those funds
could be moved and I would
support and work with him
to get those funds. I was told
'no' and I turned and left the
room."
Imfeld continued, "I was
never approached about this
again. It was not an item in
his budget and I never told
him to just go and get the
system. I took him through
the procedure necessary in
order to get the money and
his telling me 'no' meant
to me he didn't want to do
that." Imfeld also touched
on the sheriffs driving
track. "In the prior article,
Johnson is quoted as saying
he talked to me or someone
about his needing to bid out
the track." Imfeld respond-
ed, "I have never discussed
that issue with him at any
time."
Imfeld said it was the
lack of accountability and
finger-pointing that spurred
him into speaking out of this
issue, "I felt like with all the
things that have gone on
and all the finger-pointing
at other people, I would
have appreciated him step-
ping up and taking respon-
sibility for his actions or in-
actions, instead of pointing
the finger at somebody else
or, in this case, me. It's just
not accurate."
Imfeld also addressed
the $740,000 that Johnson
said he returned months af-
ter the fiscal year deadline.
Imfeld was asked, if John-
son had this extra money in
his accounts, why he would
request Imfeld find more
funds for the 911 system.


PAGE 11-A
"I felt like with all the things that have
gone on and all the finger-pointing at other
people, I would have appreciated him step-
ping up and taking responsibility for his
actions or inactions, instead of pointing
the finger at somebody else or, in this case,
me. It's just not accurate." Bill Imfeld, Walton
County finance director


"The $740,000 has been
verified by both the (county)
Clerk of the Court and by
Hilton Galloway, the exter-
nal auditor. I am confused
to the fact that if the sheriff
had an extra $740,000 in his
accounts why he would ask
me to try and find $300,000?
I have no idea why he would
ask if he already had it."
Imfeld says that although
the sheriff provided docu-
mentation on the amount of
$740,000 in a public meet-
ing with the BCC the next
day, his office only returned
$692,000, leaving a $48,000
deficit. Imfeld says, "If he
was not authorized to spend
the $740,000, how could he
spend the $48,000 that is un-
accounted for and the Clerk
of Courts is showing $48,000
receivable from the sheriffs
office. What happened to
that $48,000? I don't know.
From the accounting stan-
dards and laws I am aware
of, in a new budget year, all
of that money should have
been returned to the Clerk
of the Courts. I was never
aware of these funds until
we received the packet ask-
ing for these funds to be
rolled forward in February
of this year."
When asked if the much-
anticipated audit due out at
the end of the month would
answer the questions sur-
rounding Johnson's budget,
Imfeld responded, "I haven't
seen the actual audit yet, but
this may not show up until
next year's audit because
it was turned in during a
new fiscal year. I just don't
know what they will report
yet. I believe the next step
will be up to the Clerk of the
Courts to ask, at some point
and time, where the $48,000


is that is still marked as ac-
counts receivable on their
books."
As far as the $5,000 re-
turned from the inmate
canteen fund a few weeks
ago, Imfeld said, "From an
accountant's point of view,
when all of this was turned
over, one would normally
have a check book or ledger
of an account and they would
know what is still outstand-
ing. Why it took over a year
for this to be returned, I just
don't'know?"
When asked how the
sheriffs office's account-
ing procedures compare to
other constitutional offices
in the county, Imfeld said,
"All are required to return
excess funds within 30 days
after the close of the fis-
cal year. I am not aware in
the last eight years of any
other office being this late
or returning this large of an
amount."
Imfeld said, taxpayers
and local officials should
be aware and cognizant of
where those funds are and
how they are being used.
"I'm a taxpayer, as well,
and I want the most for my
tax dollars and I want to be
aware of how my tax dollars
are being used. Accountabil-
ity and responsibility are
the duties of all of our offi-
cials and offices."
The Herald also spoke
with Walton County Tax-
payers Association repre-
sentative Bob Hudson on the
day of the Imfeld interview.
Hudson confirmed Imfeld's
account of the meeting in
July 2007 and added. "This
is not about politics, this is
about accountability to the
citizens and taxpayers of
Walton County."


PUBLIC NOTICE'

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR
DRINKING WATER
Monitoring Requirement Not Met for
City of Freeport


We are required to monitor your drinking water for total
coliform bacteria on a regular basis. Results of regular
monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking
water meets health standards. City of Freeport collected 8
of the required 9 distribution samples during the month of
January 2008. However, these samples were absent of
total coliform, and the water is considered safe to drink at
this time.


What should I do?


There is nothing you need to do at this time. Total coliform
bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms
are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment
and are used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful,
bacteria may be present.


What happened? What is being done?


Due to an operator oversight, the proper number of
samples was not collected. The proper sampling
procedures have been reviewed in order to avoid
monitoring and reporting violations in the future.


For more information, please contact City of Freeport at
(850) 835-2822. Please share this information with all the
other people who drink this water, especially those who
may not have received this notice directly (for example,
people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and
businesses).
This notice is being sent to you by City of Freeport.

the front of the DeFuniak
Library, the Chautauqua
building, the Heritage Mu-
seum area, the Visitors
Center and the Blue Star
Marker on U.S. 90 and U.S.
331. The club also gives an
annual college scholarship
each year to a deserving stu-
dent. The club put up three
new blue Martin bird houses
in the Lakeyard in October,
then sponsored a free ama-
ryllis event November 7 at
the DeFuniak Springs Com-
munity Center. Following
that, on November 14, the
group planted 2,000 more
yellow daffodils around the
lake, bringing the total to
over 5,000.
The group participated in


the Christmas Tree Festival
in December and planted a
beautiful red maple at the
lake for Arbor Day in Janu-
ary. In February, the club
donated $200 worth of gar-
dening tools to the Habi-
tat for Humanity house
'recipient. The group just
recently planted 77 more
native plants in the Native
Plant Library Reading Gar-
den and added more plnat
name tags. They have just
purchased a water fountain
for that garden that will be
installed this month. Their
latest project was a roadside
beautification effort. The
members bought and plant-
ed an additional 200 rain
lilies on the embankment
at U.S. 331 and Live Oak
Avenue, to fill in the areas
where the lilies were miss-
ing.
The Garden Club meets
the first Wednesday of each
month. Each month there is'
a program about some aspect
of gardening. The meetings
are always open to the pub-
lic and visitors are always


welcome. For more informa-
tion, contact Dara Dobson

People


Nina




replica




visits




area


Places


By JEFFREY POWELL
"It's like seeing the world
at seven miles per hour,"
said Nina replica crew mem-
ber and cook Ian Coppoch.
"I signed on for 90 days in
2006 and but for a brief
break have been on board
ever since."
Coppoch, along with three
other crew members and
a captain, is in temporary
port at the Panama City Ma-
rina. The all-volunteer crew
sails the ship around North
America so the public can
see this "sailing museum."
The original Nina, Pinta
and Santa Maria used by
Christopher Columbus on
his first voyage across the
Atlantic Ocean were com-
mon trading vessels. The
Santa Maria, which Colum-
bus reportedly never liked,
was a Nao type of cargo
vessel. The Nina and Pinta
were caravels and were used
by explorers during the age
of discovery. The Nina was
known to be Columbus' fa-
vorite.
In 1986, the Columbus
Foundation was formed in
the British Virgin Islands
to raise money to build the
three ships that Columbus
used in his exploration of
the new world. There were
no known drawings of the
ships and all the models or
re-productions represented
a certain interpretation
from the builder. Over the
next two years extensive re-
search was done and a plan
was approved. Also, finan-
cial constraints allowed the
organization to build only
the Nina.
Designers John Patrick
Sarsfield and Jonathan
Morton Nance began build-
ing the boat in 1988. Sars-


field had discovered a group
of master shipbuilders in
Bahia, Brazil who were
still using design and con-
struction techniques dating
back to the 15th century.
The new Nina was built in
Valenca, Brazil, using only
adzes, axes, hand saws, and
chisels, as well as naturally-
shaped timbers from the lo-
cal forest.
In December 1991 the
Nina left Brazil and sailed
to Cost Rica on a 4,000-mile
unescorted maiden voyage
to take part in the filming
of the motion picture "1492:
Conquest of Paradise," di-
rected by. Ridley Scott and
starring Gerard Depardieu.
Since then the ship has vis-
ited over 250 ports in the
United States.
Archaeology magazine
has called the vessel "The
most historically correct Co-
lumbus replica
ever built."
The 93.6 foot replica has
been fitted with some mod-
ern conveniences such as a
toilet and stove.' Originally
a crew of 27 lived worked
and slept on the open deck
because the hold was fully-
loaded with a year's worth
of supplies, including live
animals hung in slings to
prevent broken legs.
Crew member Beth
Frederick,a Michigan na-
tive, has been with the boat
since July 4, 2007. She plans
to spend the next two years
sailing with the Nina and
maybe longer depending on
the health of her family.
"I just love it," said Fred-
erick.
For more information con-
cerning the Nina see www.
thenina.com.

Local shipwrecks subject of Prime Time presentation


By JEFFREY POWELL
"Shipwrecks are my passion," said
Florida Public Archaeology Network '
(FPAN) Northwest Region Director
Della Scott-Ireton.
Scott-Ireton was addressing ap-
proximately 80 people on March 8, at ',< i
a Prime Time gathering held at the .'
Coastal Branch Library in Santa Rosa
Beach.
"Most of what people think about
shipwrecks is wrong." she said. "People
have this image of skeletons and lots of
booty but usually all that we find is the
bottom of the vessel."
The FPAN is funded by the Florida
state legislature and is in the process
of identifying and cataloging ship-
wrecks found in state waters. Accord-
ing to Scott-Ireton, increased develop-
ment and dredging projects have made
this endeavor even more important.
"Shipwrecks are a non-renewable
resource," she said. "These areas need
to be protected by law."
Scott-Ireton's talk focused on. three
ships located along the Panhandle.
The first vessel was the U.S.S. Mas-
sachusetts, located near Pensacola.
The Massachusetts was one of the first
steel-hulled battleships ever commis-
sioned. "She was the biggest and bad-
dest battleship of her day," Scott-Ireton
said. "As a dive she is spectacular."
The Massachusetts was launched in
1892 and saw action in the Spanish-
American War. The ship was towed, to
Pensacola in 1921 and given to the Army for target prac-
tice. The ship now sits in 30 feet of water not far from Fort

Pickens and the turrets rise above the
water during low tides.
S. The second vessel discussed was
the Tarpon. The Tarpon was built in
'-'. 1887 in Delaware and for 30 years
made weekly trips between Mobile,
Alabama and Carabelle, FL, making'
several stops along the way. The cap-
tain of the ship, William G. Barrow, is
Reported to have said "God made the
weather I make the trip." The captain
made his trips until he was caught in
a storm and the ship sank in 90 feet
of water 11 miles offshore of Panama
City in 1937.
The Vamar was built in 1919 in
England and for some time was used
as a rumrunner. Around 1927 Richard
E. Byrd purchased the ship to use it in
his 1928-30 expedition to Antarctica.
She was the first metal hulled ship
used to explore the continent. The Va-
mar sank near Port Saint Joe in 1942
with a full load of lumber. Some locals
said the crew of foreigners had sabo-
taged the vessel in order to stay in the
S area and reconnoiter the surrounding
industrial plants. This theory was in-
vestigated but never proven. She now
sits in 27 feet of water just off the
coast.
"We want divers to go to these
wrecks," Scott-Ireton said. "With ap-
preciation comes protection." All of
the sites are on the National Register
of Historic Places and as such are pro-
tected.

Ask

Auntie Em
Dear Auntie Em,
Due to some horrible relationships in my past, I had
become a person that was difficult to get close to. Not only
had I built a wall around myself, I reinforced that wall
with steel and bricks and surrounded it with a barbed
wire fence and a field of land mines. When anyone dared
to ask, "How's your love life?" my immediate response
was, "Love death is more like it."
As I entered my fifth decade, I was ready to hang up
my heart for good and devote my life to either public
service or sitting around listening to music and working
sudoku puzzles. But fate, Cupid, and Venus, the God-
dess of Love, intervened and three weeks ago I began a
wonderful roller coaster of a relationship with the most
incredible woman I have ever had the good fortune to
know.
We have been friends for a few years, and neither one
of us expected to take this next step. We have always
had a good time in each other's company going to the
Theater and the local nightclub to listen to our favorite
Band but now Date Night has gotten a lot sweeter.
I feel like this new love was built to last. Despite the
fast track the relationship is taking, I have no worries.
She and I have our own songs,'and we speak our own
Slanguage. I have never felt such strong feelings about
another person. Ever.
Auntie Em, I am not writing to seek your advice. Rath-
er, I wanted to share my story with some of your readers
who may have given up hope of ever finding enduring
love. If it can happen for me, it can happen to anyone.
Signed,
Delirious in Destin
(Name and address withheld on request)
Dear Delirious,
Wow, honey, it sounds like Cupid flew around and
whacked you up side the head with the baseball bat of
love. Thanks for reaffirming to our readers that love can
.strike at anytime and most often when you are not look-
inrg or wearing a helmet.
Just a few words of caution. Falling in love is a beauti-
ful thing, but make sure you don't lose yourself or what
you hold dear in the process. The idea that love com-
pletes us is the reason therapists drive foreign sports
cars. It keeps them in business. The healthiest relation-
ships are those that are entered by two people who are
already complete in their endeavors and personal life.
True love compliments us, not completes us.
With those words of warning said, I leave you with
this quote by Bertrand Russell that lends credence to
jumping in head first. "Of all forms of caution, caution in
love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness." Good
luck and God bless.

Movie Review


"The Bank Job" delivers with interest


By LEAH STRA TMANN
If slick seamless crime capers are on your list of
favorite types of movies, then "The Bank Job" should be
on your must-see list. Supposedly based on true events in
1971 London, the film concerns a group of ragtag petty
criminals enlisted to rob Lloyd's Bank on Baker Street.
Playing a small car dealer with loan shark
problems, Jason Statham as Terry Leathers is
approached by an old friend and flame in the person of
Saffron Burrows as Martine Love. Love has been seeing a
married member of M5 who got her out of a jam and who
now wants her to recruit some proper villains to pull off a
bank job at a very specific bank for a very specific
purpose. The purpose is to retrieve compromising photos
of a member of the royal family taken by a man who uses
black activism to disguise his drug dealing, blackmail
schemes, and organized prostitution activities.
When he is arrested on a charge of kidnapping and
temporarily enslaving a tenement landlord, Michael X -
venomously well-played by Peter De Jersey bargains his
way out of trouble by informing officials of the existence of
the photos and suggesting that as long as be is free, the
photos will remain secure. By and by, officials figure out
he has put the photos in a safe deposit box at Lloyd's
Bank.
The deal M5 strikes with Love is that if they get the
contents of Michael X's box, she and the heist crew she
assembles can keep everything else found in the boxes,
which is likely to be a great deal of money and jewelry,
In due course, the gang is assembled and the vault


holding the boxes breached. As the crew goes about
drilling their way inside, teams of M5 agents outside
monitor their activities, but the agents are forbidden from
taking any direct action to help the criminals succeed.
As the robbery gets underway, Leather begins to have
suspicions about Love and this is aggravated when she
seems interested only in the contents of one box in the
bank. When he sees the.photos, she comes clean about the
whole caper more or less being an inside job, but one that
will never be acknowledged by the government spooks.
Terry then begins to have other ideas about ways to use
the photos.
There are also other people with compromising
material in the safety deposit boxes, including a porn king
and a wily and unscrupulous madam of a pleasure house.
both of who are quite beside themselves when news of the
robbery breaks.
This film zips right along. There are no long set-ups,
and no filler just action, punctuated by more than a few
twists and turns. Director Roger Donaldson keeps the cast
neatly buttoned up, with no character playing to the
second balcony. The actors are superb in the banality of
the characters they play from the gang which includes
the married car dealer and doting father, a former porn
star, a would-be photographer and a newly married young
man. The real villains, including corrupt Scotland Yard
agents, members of Parliament, and the M5 team are also
presented in a straightforward manner.
This film will not bore you and if even half of it is true,
it is a whale of a tale.

Favre says

farewell 9B


PDL out-slugs South Walton 13-10


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Pi-
rates got a grand slam from
Ryan Yates and took advan-
tage of six South Walton
walks as they rallied for a
.13-10 baseball victory in a
-non-district game played in
Ponce de Leon.
South Walton built a 6-2
lead in their first four at-
bats as the Seahawks tallied
four runs in the third inning
off an error and five singles.


The Pirates tied the game
after taking advantage of a
pair of errors and a single
before Yates launched a
home run with the bases
loaded on a very windy
night in PDL. Yates cracked
an 0-1 pitch off South Wal-
ton starter Bryant Adams to
tie the game at 6-6 heading
into the fifth inning.
Adams gave his squad the
lead again in the fifth inning


as he hit a two-run homer
off reliever Brock Bishop to
put the Seahawks in front
8-6.
PDL wasted no time in
tying the game in the bot-
tom of the fifth. Reliever
Jake Wright walked three
batters and a fielding error
allowed two runs to score to
tie the game at 8-8.
PDL took the lead for
good in the bottom of the
sixth as Wright walked a


pair sandwiched around a
single to load the bases with
nobody out. The Seahawks
brought in Billy Burnett to
relieve Wright, but Burnett
walked in the go-ahead run,
then hit a batter to up the
Pirates lead to 10-8. Bran-
don Howell followed with a
single and the Pirates blew
open a tight contest to take
a 13-8 lead.
The Seahawks did not go
quietly into the top" of the


seventh as Hunter Infinger
smacked a two-run homer to
cut the margin to 13-10, but
Jared Bump came on for the
Pirates to close the game
and earn a save by striking
out Jake Wright to end the
contest.
Game Notes: PDL won
the first game 12-8 to sweep
the season series. The wind
was blowing out to leftfield,
aiding hitters and creating
havoc for the outfielders on


high pop flies throughout the
night. South Walton strand-
ed eight base-runners and
committed four errors while
PDL stranded four while
committing three errors.
Bishop picked up the win
in relief with Wright taking
the loss. Caylon Friend and
Brock Bishop had two hits
apiece for PDL while South
'Walton got a pair of hits
from Billy Burnett, Hunter
Infinger and Jake Hawkins.

Walton alums Dexter Mc-
Nabb and Edward Robinson
also played for the Gators
during that period.
Anderson, the first black
head football coach at Jack-
sonville Lee, said he plans
to add some new looks to
the Generals' offense next
year. Anderson will attempt
to lure former teammates at
Florida and other coaches he
has met during his coaching
career to help bring in inno-
vative football ideas to the
program.
He stepped away from


the program last season
because of family health is-
sues but continued to teach
at Lee.
"It's a dream of a lot of
athletes to be a head coach,
and to have that opportu-
nity here at Lee, one of the
great schools in this city,
is real exciting," Anderson
said. "My hope is to bring
a lot of energy back to this
program. I don't want kids
just to be going through the
motions out there. I want it
to be an electric atmosphere
and to bring back the old
Lee tradition like it used to
be here."


Moss staying in N.E.,



Griese back to Tampa


By CHUCK HINSON
NFL football rehires, re-
signs and renegotitaions
are in full swing. The latest
concerns the defending AFC
champion New England Pa-
triots and receiver Randy
Moss.
The Moss man is stay-
ing put, but only after a $27
million, three-year deal that
the team reached earlier
last week.
Moss' agent, Tim DiPi-
ero, said the deal included a
gauranteed $15 million, and


also had a rider stating that
Moss would recieve at a $12
million signing bonus. The
receiver who set an NFL
record with 23 touchdown
catches and helped the Pa-
triots reach the Superbowl
in his first year with the
team.
Moss has caught 774
passes for 12, 193 yards in a
10-year career. He also had
124 career receiving touch-
downs making him the own-
er of the fourth best in NFL
history.


While Moss was stay-
ing in New England, Brian
Griese was packing up the
trucks and moving back to
Tampa Bay.
The Buccaneers traded
and undisclosed 2009 draft
pick to the Chicago Bears
last Monday for the former
Buc quarterback. Griese
was QB for the Buccaneers
in 2004 and 2005.
Griese passed for 3,768
yards, 27 touchdowns, and
19 interceptions during his
stint with Tampa Bay.


Favre says farewell


By CHUCK HINSON
From his humble begin-
nings playing college foot-
ball for the Southern Mis-
sissippi Golden Eagles, to
becoming the quarterback
with the most passes in the
NFL, Brett Favre is, saying
goodbye to the Packers and
so long to the NFL. He told
his team, last Tuesday, that
even though he could still
play in the game and had a
lot to offer, he was not only
physically tired, but men-
tally as well.
Through ups and downs,
good and bad years, and an
overall a very tumultous and
highly-covered career, the
38-year-old said that his in-
terception against the New
York Giants during their
NFC championship game
loss that sent the New York-
ers to the Superbowl, would


have to be his last play of
his NFL career.
This topic has been
raised before and discussed
among his strong Packer
fan base, several times be-
fore. The long waits during
and throughout the sum-
mer, not knowing what the
next season would hold for
the team, the constant bom-
bardment of questions other
team fans were asking about
his return, have all been put
to rest. It is official that he
will not return to the field
for spring practice and a
new quarterback search will
soon begin.
He holds some very im-
pressive records including
most career touchdowns,
most career yards, and most
career victories by a starting
quarterback. Add in another
point of interest, winning


the 1997 Superbowl, and
the mixture was ideal for a
winning career and team.
Favre also had other re-
cords that were not so im-
pressive including 288 in-
terception. But he always
bounced back, and made
another career record as he
went 253 consecutive regu-
lar-season starts, finishing
his career at 275.
He told the team he was
simply worn out after lead-
ing the Packers for more
than 15 years on the field.
He needed time with his
wife and family.
Favre retires with 5, 377
career completions in 8, 758
attempts, with 61, 655 yards
and 442 touchdowns.
A new quarterback has
not yet replaced Favre, but
the team has begun their
search.

Busch gets first win in Toyota


By CHUCK HINSON
In the heart of the South,
a Toyota Camry made it
into the winner's circle. Kyle
Busch pulled away from the
pack with 50 laps to go and
kept the lead to secure the


win at the Kobalt Tolls 500
at the Atlanta Motor Speed-
way.
Busch got his first win
since March 25, 2007 when
he won in Bristol. He had
gone neck and neck with


Edwards docked points


By CHUCK HINSON
Carl Edwards had taken
both his straight wins and
gone to the top of the NA-
SCAR points lead, until last
week when the governing
board in Charlotte, N.C.
stripped the driver and
the Roush Fenway team of
their points. It is the strict-
est penalty imposed on a
driver and team yet.
All the controversy start-
ed just after the March 2
race in Las Vegas, where in-
spectors said that they had
discovered the cover was off
the oil tank in the No. 99
Ford. The uncovered tank
would allow the car to gain

quicker speed and thus his
win was related to that rule
infraction.
Roush Fenway and Ed-
wards were docked 100
points, knocking him out
of first place into seventh
place. They also took his 10
bonus points he would have
carried into the Chase for
the championship.

In addition to Edwards'
penalty, crew chief Bob Os-
borne was fined $100,000
and suspended for six weeks.
Owner Jack Roush was
docked 100 owner points.
The team has until this
Friday to make an appeal.

Carl Edwards, who was sit-
ting on his possible third
win, but a broken transmis-
sion ended the race for him
with just laps to go.
The win for the Japanese
auto manufacturer is the
first in the NASCAR's top
series history. It was the
40th showing of a foreign
automobile in the races, but
until now there had never
been a win.
Al Keller was the last
driver to win a NASCAR
in a foreign automobile in
1954, when he won in Lin-
den, N.J. in a Jaguar.
The win also put the No.
18 car back into victory


lane. After cheers from the
crowds and a warm, "thanks
for bringing No. 18" from for-
mer crew chief Jimmy Mak-
er, it was clear that the car
that had won six NASCAR
victories by Bobby LaBonte,
was on the right track.
Another exciting element
for racing car fans, espe-
cially for Kyle Busch fans,
is the fact that he is only 22
years old and is the young-
est winner on the 1.5-mile
oval track since Jeff Gordon

BMcW Foundation Legends



basketball game a success


By PATRICK CASEY
Recently, 14 former Wal-
ton basketball players and
five seniors from area high
schools took part in the first
BMCW Foundation Legends
basketball game in order to
raise funds for the Visions
of the Future Scholarship
given by the Foundation an-
nually.
The charity game fol-
lowed a dance camp that
was held earlier in the day
by former Indiana Pacer
cheerleaders. 54 youngsters
took part in the camp with
most performing at halftime
of the basketball game that
was held at Walton Senior
High School.
The game ended 77-76
with the local seniors edg-
ing the Legends squad, but
most of the second half was
played with child spectators
shooting the free throws
when the two teams went to
the foul line.
While the score was not
a big concern, the crowd on
hand enjoyed watching a
contest that featured some
of Walton's best boys bas-
ketball players from the last
22 years.
Davonn Fields, who holds
Walton's all-time career
scoring mark, led players
with 22 points and looked
like he could still average
that on a nightly basis.
Fields averaged 20.5 points
per game for the Braves his
senior year of 1991-92 and
24.4 points per game his ju-
nior season.
Anthony Troupe added
15 points for the Legends
squad. Troupe wrapped up
his Walton playing career in
1994-95 and averaged 24.3
points per game that sea-
son. Troupe is believed to
hold Walton's single game
scoring mark as he put iup
44 points against- Freeport.
in a 90-80 double overtime


victory at Freeport early in
his senior year.
Dino Benedict, who played
his final season at Walton in
1992-93, was the only other
Legends player in double fig-
uies as he scored 11 points.
Benedict was Walton's lead-

12 points while Sydney
McGhee had seven points
with Paxton's Chaze Russell
scoring five. Former Walton
players Darryl McGhee and
Kenny Walker played with
the senior to give them a
seven-man squad. Darryl,
who just finished his two-
year career at Gulf Coast
Community College, had 13
points with Walker adding
seven points.
The Legends squad led
46-39 at halftime with the
game consisting of four ten-
minute quarters. Former
basketball players Benny
Goodson (Class of 1988) and
Myles Austin (Class of 1997)
served as the honorary two-
man referees.
B.B. Campbell and Keith
Williams, both representing
the Class of 1987 at Walton,
were the two oldest players
to take part in the contest.
Joe McCall scored six
points and represented the
Class of 1988 along with
Eric Hogans.
Ahmal Campbell (Class
of 1991) scored four points.
Campbell averaged 19.5
points per game for the
Braves his senior year.

Robert Ridgeway (Class
of 1990) scored five points
with Tavarus Hogans (Class
of 1996) adding two points
in limited duty. Shannon
Rushing (Class of 1989) also
suited up for Walton and
was the lone representative
of his class.
Former Walton coach
Gordon Brock, who coached
the Braves from 1986-87
until the 2000-01 season,
coached the Legends squad
with former assistant coach
Mitch Jackson handling the
public address duties.

of the Future Scholarship

in honor of Tabitha. Bird,
Mitch McCaskill and Ron
Wilkerson, three students
who lost their lives before
the age of 21 that attended

The Foundation plans to
hold a golf tournament to
raise funds this fall, as it
has in past years.

By CHRIS MANSON
The prosecution rested
its case against Mark Cozzie
Tuesday afternoon, following
an often-emotional morning
of testimony from teenage
girls. Former .South Walton
High School (SWHS) coach
Cozzie is on trial for lewd
and lascivious conduct.
On Monday afternoon,
the jury of six and one al-
ternate heard opening argu-
ments from Assistant State
Attorney James Parker and
defense attorney Buddy Cot-
ton. The complainant in this
case one of seven charges
being tried separately was
a 15-year-old girl who testi-
fied that Cozzie had inap-
propriately
touched her while rubbing
pain ointment on her quad-
riceps, the muscles on the
front of the thighs.
During Cotton's cross-


examination, the girl said
Cozzie rubbed her thigh for
"two to three seconds" and
answered no after she was
asked if Cozzie ever said
anything to her that could
be interpreted as lewd or
sexual.
On Tuesday, six girls tes-
tified about past encounters
with Cozzie, many becom-
ing teary-eyed when cross-
examined by the defense.
Despite objections by Cot-
ton, Judge Kelvin Wells al-
lowed the testimony citing
the Williams Rule, a Florida
statute that dates back to
1959 and allows relevant
evidence of collateral wrong
acts to be admitted during
trial if used to show motive,
intent, knowledge, or lack of
mistake.

Santiago Diner gets final approval


By DOTTY NIST
Soon a shiny 1950s-style
diner will be opening off U.S.
98 in Santa Rosa Beach, fol-
lowing several years of its
owners' seeking approval
from Walton County.
The story of the Santiago
Diner has been long and in-
volved, including a previous
approval by county commis-
sioners which was later re-
scinded. From the start, the
odds were against the prefab
diner because of its location,
about 200 feet north of the

and particularly those with

However, diner own-

and local diner fans have
been supportive. The last

ignated for commercial and
industrial use? Are the coun-
ty's land-use classifications
applied in a logical way, and
are the classifications suit-
able to accommodate future
growth?
Opinions from the public
on these and other topics
will be welcomed in a se-
ries of community meetings
hosted all over the county
Sby Walton County Planning
and Development Services.
The meeting series will be-
gin in Mossy Head on March
18 and will run through
June, 4 at a variety of loca-
tions.
Input is being taken in
conjunction with the prepa-
ration of amendments aimed
at implementing goals iden-
tified in Walton County's
latest evaluation and ap-
praisal report (EAR).
The EAR is a detailed re-
view of the Walton County
Comprehensive Plan that
is required by state law ev-
ery seven years. The EAR


is a measure of the compre-
hensive plan's success, for
example, in helping realize
the goals of the community
and in anticipating future
needs.
This EAR is the second
for Walton County and was
approved, following a three-
year public planning pro-
cess, by the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners in December 2006.
In February 2007, the EAR
was deemed sufficient by
the state Department of
Community Affairs (DCA).
Developed as part of the
EAR process was .a list of
important community issues
to be addressed. In prepara-
tion of the report, the com-
prehensive plan was exam-
ined in the light of each of
those issues to see how the
plan could be improved.
The county's task over
the next 18-24 months is to
prepare text and future land
use map (FLUM) amend-
ments to put those proposed
improvements in place.
"This is the 'meat' of the
EAR," said Pat Blackshear,
county planning and devel-
opment services director.
In Jan. 2006, DCA had
expressed concern about the

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE. THURSDAY. MARCH 13. 2008


DINER CONI

the Walton County Design
Review Board (DRB), was
granted on March 6. In more
ways than one, this was "the
little diner that could."
Following up on the
DRB's initial review of the
diner proposal, in April 2007
the Santiagos' engineer Wil-
liam Horn appeared before
the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) to ask for approval
contingent on the resolu-
tion of architectural issues
with the DRB. At that time
the DRB had called for stuc-
coing of the building, and
Horn presented plans to do
that.
Surprisingly, after hear-
ing pro-diner testimony
from the public, the BCC
voted unanimously to ap-
prove the structure "as is."
The result was hard feelings
on the part of the DRB and
a focus on the roles of the
BCC, the DRB and the Wal-
ton County Zoning Board
of Adjustment (ZBA), par-
ticularly in connection with
deviations from county code
and requests for variances.
In June 2007, the BCC
rescinded their approval of
the project with regard to
the building architecture.
The Santiagos did not re-
turn to plans to stucco the


TINUED FROM FRONT

structure but continued to
seet approval of their proj-
ect.
Walton County subse-
quently adopted ordinances
that provided the DRB with
flexibility to approve proj-
ects deviating from the strict
language of the scenic corri-
dor standards, as long as the
proposed deviations are not
destructive to the purposes
of the corridor. This change
is likely to make approval
easier for many future pro-
posals.
Another new ordinance
enabled applicants to ap-
peal DRB decisions to the
ZBA. Previously county code
stated that appeals of DRB
decision should go to circuit
court.
At the March 6 meeting
of the DRB, Walton County
Senior Planner Tim Brown
recommended approval of a
number of deviations for the
Santiago Diner proposal.
His recommendation was
based on no negative impact
to the purposes of the scenic
corridor posed by the devia-
tions.
The deviations applied to
roof pitch, roofing and siding
materials, and minimum
height distance to the eave.
Accompanyingthepropos-
al was a 10-foot landscape


buffer to extend across the
front of the property. Brown
explained that the buffer
would screen the diner from
the U.S. 98 scenic corridor,
with the exception of the en-
trance road.
The prefab diner building
is currently located a short
distance east of Dankel
Plaza, a small commercial/
retail center. Plans are for it
to be moved slightly to the
west, behind Dankel Plaza,
and share the plaza's access
road to U.S. 98.
DRB member Bob John-
son motioned for approval of
the deviations with the ad-
ditional conditions that no
neon lights shall be allowed
and that the building's
air conditioning unit and
dumpster shall be screened
from view. The motion was
approved, with all members
present voting in favor of
the deviations, thus remov-
ing the last obstacle to proj-
ect approval.
Following the meeting,
Victor Santiago commented
that plans are for the diner
to open "soon." However,
this will not happen imme-
diately, since a number of
items remain to be accom-
plished, including moving
the diner, the landscaping
and site work.


Sports broadcaster faces


investment fraud charges


A Santa Rosa Beach
sports talk radio host was
arrested March 7 on six
counts of committing in-
vestment fraud by selling
investment opportunities in
several of'his companies.
Charles Scott McKinney,
42, of 24 Seaward Drive in
Santa Rosa Beach, is also
charged with theft and rack-
eteering. His arrest is the
'result of a joint investiga-
tion between the Okaloosa
County Sheriffs Office and
Bureau of Financial Inves-
tigations with the Florida
Office of Financial Regula-
tion. Investigators say be-
tween July 2005 and Decem-
ber 2006, McKinney used
his professional status as a
sports talk radio host asso-
ciated with Southern Sports
Tonight to contact and gain
the trust of local investors.


partnership agreements,
and business prospectuses.
By providing allegedly false
and misleading information
in these actions, McKin-
ney is said to have obtained
nearly $140,000.
Investigators say a finan-
cial analysis indicates that
McKinney used the funds
for personal use, rather than
to promote and/or equip the
companies: Southern Sports
Tonight, LLC; Barking Dog
Media, LLC; and Southeast-
ern Broadcasting, LLC. In
addition, he is said to have
failed to inform new inves-
tors of additional investors
and partners.

ther information on this
case is asked to contact the

sion at (850) 609-2000.

opment that could occur as a
result of large-scale amend-
ments that had been ap-
proved by Walton County.
DCA recommended against
approval of additional large-
scale amendments until the
EAR had been submitted to
the state and found to be
sufficient, Accordingly, since
the DCA recommendation
until now, Walton County
has not processed any large-
scale-amendment requests
except those for public pur-
poses, such as affordable
housing.
One of the top priorities
identified in preparation of
the EAR was the need to
evaluate and consolidate the
county's more-than three
dozen land-use categories.

made clear that changes to

DURING A RECESS in former South Walton High School coach Mark Cozzie's felony
trial Tuesday, defense attorney Buddy Cotton confers with Assistant State Attorney James
Parker. (Photo by Chris Manson)


TRIAL FROM FRONT


15-year-old girl, ran track
for two years at SWHS with
Cozzie as her coach. The girl
stated that Cozzie "would
walk around when we were
stretching" and that he
would "walk behind me and
reach around my shoulders
and squeeze, and (his) hand
would brush my butt." She
added that this happened
more than once and that she
did not give Cozzie permis-
sion to touch her.
During cross-examina-
tion, Cotton asked the girl
why she had not reported
the incident to anyone at
the school.
The second witness, a
17-year-old, told Parker she
participated in track and
cross country events with
Cozzie as her coach. She
described inappropriate
behavior that occurred in
Cozzie's office. The witness
said Cozzie came up behind
her and put his arms around
her breasts and "pulled me
in closer." She asked him to
let lher go, but Cozzie had
told. her,. You know'you like
it."
Cotton asked why the girl
had not made a complaint
and asked who she had spo-
ken to about the incident.
The witness said she had
been in contact with other'
students, law enforcement
officers, and personnel from
the Children's Advocacy
Center (CAC) in Niceville.
The witness began sob-
bing when Cotton asked
her why she had said in her
statement to the CAC and
depositions that "at the time
it was no big deal."
"Whether he was joking
around or not, it was inap-
propriate," she said.
The next witness, a
16-year-old who ran track
under Cozzie, stated that
she had been sitting out
her physical education class
due to a medical condition.
Cozzie walked by and asked
how the girl was feeling.
"He placed his hand on my
left thigh," she said. "I won-
dered why he would do that
so nonchalantly in front of
the P.E. class."
Later that day, the girl
said, Cozzie rubbed her neck
as she walked into the locker
room. She added that Cozzie
grabbed her hand while giv-
ing her a set of keys with
which to run errands. She
said he threw another girl
onto a pole vault mat, caus-
ing her to scream.
"We were freaked out,"
she said. "I don't know
what's going through his
mind." She said she reported
the incident the next morn-
ing. "It made me uncomfort-
able. Like, 'I'm authorita-
tive over you, and-you can't
do anything about it."'
During cross-examina-
tion, Cotton utilized assis-
tant Sonya Hart to dem-
onstrate how Cozzie had
allegedly handled the girl's
thigh.
Another witness, also 16,
was a student of Cozzie's
when he taught at Butler
Elementary School and took
P.E. and life management
classes under Cozzie at
SWHS. She said Cozzie had
given her "a bear hug" on
one occasion and had put his
hand on her buttocks more


than once. Cotton referred
to the girl's deposition in
which she said the incident
was "not a big deal."
"I said, 'He does it casu-
ally like it's not a big deal,'"
the witness said.
The next witness was a
15-year-old home schooler
who had taken P.E. un-
der Cozzie while attending
Van R. Butler Elementary
School six years earlier.
The girl said that during
one class, Cozzie had as-
sisted her in performing a
handstand. "His hand slid
down my pants," she said,
adding that the coach had
rubbed her private parts
with his hands. She said she
informed her parents about
the incident, and that they
confronted the school's prin-
cipal, but nothing came of
it.
"They talked to him and
assured my mom that they
would do something, but all
they did was transfer him
to South Walton," she said.
During cross-examina-
tion, Cotton elicited a loud
objection from Parker when
he asked the girl to put her
hand down the front of her
pants to demonstrate how
far Cozzie's knuckle had ex-
tended to her private parts.
The objection was sus-
tained.
After lunch, a 16-year-
old Fort Walton Beach High
School student who had
previously attended SWHS,
described Cozzie touching
her shoulders, rubbing her
back, and putting an arm
around her waist.
Another witness, a
19-year-old who ran track at
SWHS, testified that Cozzie
began doing weightlifting
squats with her in a manner
that had their bodies touch-


ing. She mentioned another
incident that occurred dur-
ing gym class, when the
defendant sat on her lap in
the bleachers and started
"grinding."
The girl said she didn't
report these things, but be-
gan having trouble sleep-
ing and experienced night-
mares. She said she talked
to some other girls and felt
"something should be done."
After a 15-minute recess,
SWHS guidance counselor
Barbara Cole took the stand.
Cole said she had been ap-
proached by three students
about their problems with
Cozzie. Cole stated that she
spoke to the school's
assistant principal immedi-
ately.
The girls wrote state-
ments, but Cole said she did
not assist them, "not even to
spell a word."
Cotton asked, "Was there
anything you ever saw Coach
Cozzie do inappropriately?",
to which Cole responded no.
After the state rested,
Cotton motioned for ac-
quittal. "There has been no
evidence that the rubbing
of the thighs was done in a
lewd and lascivious iiman-
ner," he told Wells. "She,
in fact, said he rubbed it on
the sore spot. His hand went
above the sore spot, but not
over three seconds. he never
touched her vagina.
"There was no one at that
practice to administer first
aid. She was an athlete who
had an injury."
Wells denied the motion.
The defense is scheduled
to present its case Wednes-
day. "We're optimistic that
the jury will return a ver-
dict of not guilty," Cotton
told the Herald-Breeze.
"The problem with this case
is it's not being tried on the
allegations of the alleged
victim. Somebody's paraded
eight people in here."

Topsail Hill Preserve State


Park presents Topsail Tours


THESE PHOTOS, sent in by a Seagrove Beach resident, show deep ruts carved into the
beaches by vehicular traffic, mostly vendors, beach clean-up crews and county law-enforce-
ment vehicles. Reader Julie Stephens said, "The beach now looks like a highway."She said
that such deep, heavy ruts greatly inhibit nesting sea turtles and the re-seeding of delicate
sea oats, which help stabilize the beaches during storms. Stephens admonished, "Leave only
your footprints behind."

Courtesy boat inspection


Come get any boat
checked by the FI FWC
while any shortcomings are
free. If they check it this
summer and find an issue,
it could cost a lot. There is
more to being legal (and
safe) than just having life-
jackets. If all is in order, an


inspection decal will be is-
sued to display on the con-
sole. Anything not up to cur-
rent laws will be explained
and no citations issued.

Just bring the boat to the
corner of S. Gulf Dr. and
Eastern Lake Road on Tues-


day, March 18, between 4
and 5 p.m. Heading east on
CR-30A from CR-283 (Sea-
grove Road, go approximate-
ly two miles and veer right
on Eastern Lake Road at the
curve in CR-30A proceed to
the three way stop and turn
left on S. Gulf Drive.


Public invited to celebrate


"The Wearin' 0' the Green"


SEAGROVE BEACH resident Julie Stephens says these deep ruts, cause by vendors,
maintenance crews and sheriff's deputies, are so bad that she had to run down onto the
beach to warn an approaching truck ab6ut her two small grandchildren, who were barely
visible playing in the ruts. "I was truly afraid they could have gone unseen and been acci-
dentally hit." Stephens is calling on local agencies to find a less damaging way to patrol the
beaches.

What
gets your
engine
fired up
wh e n
watching
the local


evening
news? What gets
you more angry,
the criminal act, or
the way that it was
covered in the
media?
Many say that the
media has taken
things too far and
has done more than
show and tell the
story.

For years, television has
been the main source of
news gathering and
collecting. It was the one
thing that brought families
together in the evening for
a TV dinner and a laugh at
Lucy, just before the 7 p.m.
news. Back in the early
days of black.and white, the
news was just that. The
news and nothing else.
Occasionally a poke or a
gibe might come from the
press agent, burt you were
too busy trying to see
around the smoke..frrpm the
cigarette that they were
smoking at the news desk,
in front of the camera. The
reporters stuck to the story
and did not venture often
into their own opinions or
thoughts of the matter.

Walter Cronkite was one
,of the most controversial
news anchors of his day
when he would push the
envelope and try to make
his faithful viewing
audience think about what
they had seen. No matter
how bad the story, Cronkite
and other reporters in the
field reported just what had
happened and left the
decisions and the opinions
be decided by the viewers.
But like TV dinners and
12-inch black and white
screens, those days or gone.
Here are the days that one
can get news 24 hours a
day on one's computer, cell
phone, the side of buildings,
ipod, on their car's
navigational system, even
from a screen located on
the front door of the
kitchen fridge. No longer
the days of having to wait


ArtC


,r~ I'S

.11


until the 6 p.m. news, its
now instant news
gratification.
In the. past few weeks, I
have harped on the
elections and the coverage
that the networks are
giving them. Newspapers
are not excluded from those
stories. No longer
candidates concerned about
the issues, but grabbing the
perfect soundbite and
headline.
The political
advertisements have
another eight months of
constant "he said, she said"
ads that the press feels the
need to elaborate on every
time the camera is on them.
Even one politician has
commented and complained
that the media is against
them and their campaign
for the White House.
Every day a new and
interesting show. seems to
appear on the tube that
either justifies, supports or
condemns .politicians in
office, or those seeking to
be elected. Even more so in
this year's election is that it
is obvious who, the media
wants in and who they
want out.
But isn't that the God-
given right of the voters?
Isn't there a point where
viewers stop listening to
the "commentators" and
"experts" and form an
opinion on their own?
That seems to be just
what the voting and
viewing public have begun
doing in the past few
weeks.
Shows on CNN, FOX
News, MSNBC, NBC, CBS
and ABC, or getting
thousands of e-mails and
letters about their coverage
and the opinions, rather
than the facts, being
relayed on the screen.
Complaints that have even
warranted network anchors
to. make apologies and
retractions for stories and
predictions they before
before all the facts were
compiled.
Viewers have the biggest
say-so, just behind the
network advertisers, on
what they want to see and
when they want to see it.


Due to the
1 p1 Internet
T and blogs
Pl S that now
crowd the
Internet,
-' [t-i L C millions are
firing back,
asking why,
refusing to
watch and even cancelling
satellite and cable service,
because of not being
representative of the basic
news.
In recent polls, more and
more results are showing
people not sure of a
candidate or a political
party. When asked about
the voter's reasoning, they
reply by saying, "once we
hear it on the news, we
have to rethink our entire
thought process and start
our decision-making all
over again, for all the
wrong and right reasons."
Like millions of
Americans, I find it is
frustrating to hear
commentary given after a
presidential debate or a
Presidential address. The
media considers their
viewers to be unable to
form their own opinion,
and think that viewers
believe everything that-
comes from the mouths of
reporters and news
anchors.
With the year in heated
presidential debates and
the airwaves soon to be
saturated by campaign ads
of promises, testimonials
and mud-slinging, the
press will have a more
active part in the way we
hear and see each'cadidate
and what they stand for. It
will be up to us as the
voting and viewing
American public, be it
Republican or Democrat,
black or white, male or
female, to make our own,
decisions and rely on good-
old common sense, when
we pull the lever in the
ballot booth come
November.

The news networks
should be sent a clear, and
undistorted message that
America wants change,
starting with the media
riding the fence and
broadcasting the news in a
fair and unbiased way. For
if we all make a stink
about the way the
candidates are seen and
portrayed, it will be an
easier task electing our
next leader and setting an
example for future
elections.

Tax fraud:


Every tax season, scam
artists come out to prey on
unsuspecting consumers.
the Better Business Bureau
(BBB) warns that fraudsters
posing as the Internal Rev-
enue Service (IRS) are using
mail, e-mail and the tele-
phone to con taxpayers into
revealing their personal and
financial information.
"Filing taxes can be a
complicated and confusing
process for many people,"
said Norman Wright, Presi-
dent of the BBB Foundation.
"Scammers are very adept
at posing as the IRS, prey-
ing on consumers' anxiety
to con victims into revealing
their personal and financial
information."

Scams through e-mail:
Most tax scams are perpe-
trated through e-mail phish-
ing schemes. Scammers use
a variety of tactics to trick
victims into thinking they're
being contacted by the IRS,
credit card companies or fi-
nancial institutions.
E-mails often look offi-
cial, for example using the
IRS logo, and are often ad-
dressed to the recipient by


name. They may claim that
there's an issue with the re-
cipient's refund, that they
are being audited or that
there is a problem prevent-
ing their taxes from being
processed. Often, hyperlinks
lead to a Web site where vic-
tims are asked for Social
Security numbers, bank ac-
count information or credit
card numbers. In some
cases, these illicit sites au-
tomatically install viruses
and malware on the victim's
computer or steal personal
information without the vic-
tim's knowledge.
Know the Red Flags:
Many phishing scams are
operated outside the United
States, and their e-mails are
often rife with spelling and
grammatical mistakes. And
the IRS doesn't send unso-
licited, tax-account related
e-mails to taxpayers.

Scams over the phone:
BBB warns consumers about
one ploy in which scammers
pose as IRS representatives,
saying they are calling to
verify a taxpayer's bank ac-
count number because the
IRS has noticed that the


individual has not cashed
their tax refund check yet.
Know the Red Flags:
The IRS does not monitor
whether or not taxpayers
have cashed refund checks
or not. And the IRS primar-
ily communicates with tax-
payers in writing through
the U.S. Postal Service.

Scams through the mail:
The IRS reports that non-
U.S. residents are receiv-
ing bogus IRS letters and a
fake Form W-8BEN for es-
tablishing appropriate tax
withholding. Recipients are
told to fill out the form and
provide account 'numbers,
pin numbers, their moth-
er's maiden name and their
passport number.
Know the Red Flags:
Consumers who receive IRS
or tax-related forms in the
mail should go online to ver-
ify the authenticity of forms
on the IRS Web site. In the
case of non-U.S. residents,
the real Form W-8BEN does
not ask for personal infor-
mation.

Refund scams: With the
approval of the 2008 eco-


nomic stimulus package,
consumers need to be on
the lookout for refund check
scams. While no specific tax
refund scams have emerged
yet in the 2008 tax season,
BBB predicts it's only a mat-
ter of time.
In a variation of the age-
old advance fee check scam,
BBB advises consumers
that they could potentially
receive what looks like a
legitimate check from the
IRS in the mail with direc-
tions to wire money back to
the IRS or some other third
party who is supposedly pro-
cessing the check on behalf
of the IRS in order to cover
fees or taxes.
Know the Red Flags: Con-
sumers don't need to divulge
any information beyond fil-
ing their tax returns, nor do
they need to wire money to
receive their refund check.
Consumers should verify
the identity and legitimacy
of the individual and organi-
zation before providing any
information, whether by
phone, mail or e-mail.
For additional informa-
tion and advice you can
trust, start with bbb.org.

Fifth annual Legends and

Falling Waters State
Park will host the 5th an-
nual Legends and Lore Fes-
tival on March 28 and 29.
Craftsmen will demon-
strate historic tools and
trades. Visitors will be able
to assist a tradesman using
historic saws and froes, talk
to a man making moonshine
and smell the pleasing aro-
mas being created by the


cast-iron cooking demon-
stration. Visitors will see a
blacksmith use his hammer
to shape metal and a miller
grind corn on a hundred-
year-old grist mill. Try
shelling corn with a 75-year
old corn sheller or taste the
corn after it is cooked as
cornbread.
Take a trip way back into
history and talk to the peo-


ple exhibiting Indian arti-
facts or watch a corn binder
demonstration or a cut-off
saw turning out firewood
for the fire place and wood
stove.
Food will be available for
purchase. Entry fee will be
by a donation of $4 per ve-
hicle. These funds will help
offset the cost of the festi-
val and help maintain the


park.
The festival is sponsored
by The Friends of Falling

ty Tourist Development
