County

upgrading

all 911

systems

By ALICIA LEONARD
With the recent contro-.
versy surrounding the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) -911 upgrade, the
Herald went in search of an-
swers concerning 911 sys-
tems in Walton County.
"We are in the process
now of upgrading our sys-
tems," said Michelle Gatlin,
Walton County E911 coordi-
nator/trainer. Gatlin wrote
the grant that was awarded
to the Emergency Opera-
tions Center (EOC) and De-
Funiak Springs Police De-
partment (DFSPD).
"We were awarded
$677,760.36 last year to up-
grade our systems and we in-
cluded the DFSPD upgrade
in that grant, as well. The
sheriffs office didn't partici-
pate in the grant as they had
other funding." Gatlin says
that in the next few months,
the EOC new Positron Viper
911 system will be in place.
"It's the next generation in
911 systems. We will have
the ability to locate a caller
and if they are moving, as
say in a car, we will be able
to update their location us-
ing GPS technology, as well
as help someone who is us-
ing voice over IP technology.
Meaning, if they are using
the Internet phone program,
we will be able to locate
them to offer assistance, as
well."
Gatlin cited at least three
offices that serve as rollover
centers that pick up calls for
the 911 system, making sure
that all citizens calls are an-
swered and routed properly.
"We use the South Walton
Fire Department, the DF-
SPD, as well as the WCSO.
We also are in the process
of moving our portable 911
system to the north end and
it can be setup anywhere in
cases of disaster. All it takes
is a flip of the switch from
the Embarq network and
we could answer citizens
calls outside of the county if
necessary," she said. Even
though the WCSO 911 sys-
tem is by Motorola, Gatlin
says it won't be a concern,
"They will all be compatible
when we are up and run-
ning."
When contacted, the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) ex-
pressed pleasure with the
upgrades as well as well as
with the past performance

DeFuniak Springs attor-
ney Allan Ramey, 62 and his
father Roy, 93, also of De
Funiak Springs, were found
dead in a small lake on pri-
vate property off of T.R.
Miller Road. Ramey's body
was found on Sunday March
16, while that of his father
was recovered on March
17. Cause of death remains
under investigation, but is
most likely drowning.
On March 16, around
5:31 p.m., the Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
received a 911 call from
a woman saying that she


could not locate a missing
relative, that she had found
his vehicle at a lake off of
T.R. Miller Road, and that
there was a capsized boat
in the lake. Both WCSO and
Walton County Fire & Res-
cue responded to the scene.
The missing relative was
determined to be unharmed.
The capsized boat belonged
to another individual, and
two people had been in the
boat. The lake is reportedly
about 15 acres in size, and
12 feet deep at the center.
Following a search, one
body was recovered. It was


WALTON COUNTY TAX COLLECTOR Rhonda Skipper
and Glenda Penton, mother of Army Sgt. Timothy Padgett
who was killed inaction while serving in Iraq, show the new
gold star military specialty plate.


Mother of local fallen

soldier to receive first

gold star plate in

Walton County


Glenda Penton, mother
of fallen soldier Army Ser-
geant Timothy Padgett, was
the first Walton County res-
ident to be issued the gold
star specialty license Plate,
a plate honoring the family
members of service mem-
bers who have been killed
while serving in the Armed
Forces of the United States.
The plate was approved by
the Florida legislature last
year and began being issued
this month.
Upon receiving the first
gold star license plates, em-
ployees of the Walton Coun-
ty Tax Collector's Office
wanted to make sure that
Penton was the first recipi-
ent in Walton County.
"Glenda is a friend to
many of us and our staff au-
tomatically thought of her
when we learned of the new
specialty plate. We wanted


to honor Timothy's sacrifice
for our country," said Tax
Collector Rhonda Skipper.
The gold star license plate
is available to any Florida
motor vehicle owner whose
spouse or child has been
killed while serving in the
Armed Forces of the United
States. By Florida Statute,
the plate is only available
to family members of a ser-
vice member who resided in
Florida at the time of death
of the service member. Upon
application and proof of eli-
gibility, a gold star license
plate is issued for one ve-
hicle per household free of
charge.
Citizens who would like
to learn more about the gold
star license plate are en-
couraged to contact the Wal-
ton County Tax Collector's
Office or visit the website at

identified as that of attorney
Allan Ramey, of DeFuniak
Springs. The search contin-
ued up until around 9 p.m.
for the second person, but
was called off due to dark-
'ness. Deputies stayed at the
scene during the night until
a dive team arrived in the
morning to help look for the
body of the second victim.
The second body was re-
covered at around 2:49 p.m.
on the afternoon of March
17. It was identified as Al-
lan Ramey's father, Roy
Ramey.

Double stabbing

leaves one dead in

DeFuniak Springs


On March 16 at approxi-
mately 4:30 p.m., EOC
(Emergency Operations
Center) received a call for
help at 131 South 23rd
Street, DeFuniak Springs
in reference to two subjects
who had been attacked in
their home with a knife.
The victims were identified
as James Charles Walker,
72, and James Alex Walker,
39, who both positively iden-
tified Chad Douglass Rush-
ing, 40, as having committed
the attack. James Charles,
who was in a wheel chair at
the time of the attack, and
James Alex were both trans-
ported for immediate medi-
cal attention. James Charles
was life-flighted to Sacred
Heart Hospital in Pensacola
for severe knife wounds to
the throat. On March 17,
he died. James Alex was
transported to Healthmark
Regional Medical Center for
cuts to the throat and was
later released.
After the alleged attack
the suspect, Rushing, fled
the scene on foot. The De
Funiak Springs Police De-


apartment (DFSPD) along
with the assistance of the
Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO) set up a pe-
rimeter and called in the
Walton Correctional Institu-
tion's K-9 tracking team to
help locate Rushing. After
approximately five hours of
searching, WCSO received
a call stating that Rushing
was in a 2006 silver Honda
vehicle. The vehicle was lo-
cated in the north end of the
county by Walton County
deputies and a traffic stop
was conducted on the vehi-
cle. The passenger, Rushing,
fled from the vehicle. After a
short pursuit on foot, Rush-
ing was arrested and trans-
ported to the Walton County
Department of Corrections
by sheriffs deputies.
Investigators from the
DFSPD originally booked
Rushing with two counts of
attempted murder, as well
as counts of resisting and
giving a false identity. The
case remains under investi-
gation, and charges should
be amended.


Slowing economy

evident at Freeport

Council meeting


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport City
Council meeting in City Hall
on March 11, City Engineer
Charles Peters reported that
13 bids had been received
for the sewer project near
the Lazy Days Recreational
Vehicle Park. Bids ranged
from $275,000 to $508,000.
Because the low bidder,
Fountain Engineering, did
not provide sufficient infor-
mation about its ability to
perform the work, Peters


contacted communities in
south Florida who had used
this contractor. Having re-
ceived good reports on the
work performed, Peters rec-
ommended awarding the
bid to Fountain. Peters said
that these were the most
bids and the lowest bid pric-
es seen in 10 years. He said
contractors normally do-
ing work for developers are
seeking jobs elsewhere in

Senate committee approves bill to change school grading system


High schools may no lon-
ger be graded solely on the
Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test (FCAT), ac-
cording to legislation passed
today by the Senate Educa-
tion Committee.
The state's grading sys-
tem now rates schools based
entirely on how students
perform in FCAT assess-
ments of writing, reading,
math and science skills. The
bill, sponsored by committee
chairman Senator Don Gaetz
(R-Niceville), would expand


grades to include additional
measurements which Gaetz
says "more accurately and
comprehensively depict the
performance of students and
schools."
Gaetz's bill, which was
passed in a unanimous bi-
partisan vote, would con-
tinue the FCAT but have
it count for half of a high
school's grade. The remain-
der of the grade would be
determined by a combina-
tion of the school's gradua-
tion rate, participation and


performance of students in
College Board Advanced
Placement courses and In-
ternational Baccalaureate
courses, dual enrollment
courses, post-secondary
readiness as measured by
the SAT, ACT or the com-
mon placement test, and
achievement of industry cer-
tification in career courses.
The chairman supported
an amendment to his bill of-
fered by Senator Ted Deutch
(D-Boca Raton) that added
standardized statewide end-


of-course exams as another
ingredient in high school,
grades.
"Half the students in a
high school take the FCAT
- primarily freshmen and
sophomores," Gaetz ex-
plained. "But, under the
present system, the entire
school grade is based on that
partial snapshot. This legis-
lation will include the other
important indicators of per-
formance from proficiency
in career-technical courses
to college readiness to a


school's success in helping
all students earn a diploma.
Our bill doesn't eliminate
the FCAT but builds on the
FCAT to create a broader,
fairer, more comprehensive
accountability system."
The grading system re-
sults in public high schools
earning an A, B, C, D or F.
Poor grades can mean sanc-
tions while schools that re-
ceive A's also earn cash bo-
nuses.
SAppearing before the
committee to advocate for


the bill was Florida Edu-
cation Commissioner Eric
Smith, who recently served
as a high ranking official
with the College Board.
Also speaking in support
was Patricia Levesque, ex-
ecutive director of former
Governor Jeb Bush's Foun-
dation for Florida's Future.
Officials of the Florida PTA
also endorsed the bill. For

Bill 1908, go to www.flsen-

Incident on bus


has local mother concerned


By BRUCE COLLIER
De Funiak Springs moth-
er Kathy Richardson is ask-
ing herself "why did this
happen?" An incident on
the school bus involving her
6-year-old son has been trou-
bling her since it occurred
on Feb. 27. Richardson put
her son on the bus as usual,
then rode with her mother
to a meeting. On the way,
Richardson realized she had
forgotten something, and
when her mother drove her
back to her house, "to my
surprise, I saw my 6-year-
old son sitting on the couch


watching TV."
Richardson asked her son
why he was home. The boy
replied, "The bus driver told
me I could not ride her bus
and she was taking me back
home because I was talking
when the lights were on."
Richardson wrote a lengthy
letter to the Herald, in
which she detailed her son's
diagnosed disabilities at-
tention deficit hyperactivity
disorder (ADHD) and op-
positional defiant disorder
(ODD), and the incident.
For reasons of space, the
letter could not be printed


at the time, but Richardson
expressed her concerns over
the circumstances in which
her son was left at home.
Among her concerns were
whether the bus driver had
checked to see if anyone was
home when dropping off the
child. Also, Richardson said,
"there are two sexual of-
fenders living close by." The
child had not been harmed,
but Richardson's concern
led to her to call the sher-
iffs office, and also Walton
County School Superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson. An-
derson "immediately called


me back."
Having heard Richard-
son's story, Anderson apolo-
gized and told her it should
never have happened. An-
derson said she would send
a memorandum to all driv-
ers telling them the proper
procedure. Several days
later, Richardson learned
that when the driver had
dropped off the child, she
had dispatched two other
children from the bus "to
make sure that a parent was
home." According to Rich-
ardson's letter, the children
reportedly heard a voice in


the home and told the driver
someone was there.
The following week, Rich-
ardson attended a Walton
County School Board meet-
ing and related the inci-
dent to the board. Anderson
again expressed her regret,
saying "it never should have
happened." Richardson pre-
sented documentation of
her son's disabilities. "They
didn't have an answer," she
said.
In the meantime, Rich-
ardson's son has been told to
sit in a car seat while riding
the bus. "He doesn't want to
take the bus." Richardson


has contacted her state sen-
ator as well as several attor-
neys, but the attorneys have
told her that since her son
was not harmed, there is no
real cause of action. She has
not given up yet, though.
In her letter, she closes,
"I will take further action,
but I just wanted to let the
parents and grandparents
in on what could have been
a tragedy if I would not have
went back home and went
straight to work instead
of going back home." Rich-
ardson can be contacted by
e-mail at zaylababy06@ya-
hoo.com.

Life Enrichment Senior


Center plans take shape


By ALICIA LEONARD
Over 65 citizens, city and
county officials attended the
first official event of the Life
Enrichment Senior Center
(LESC) held recently at the
Chautauqua Hall of Broth-
erhood.
LESC Manager Leigh
Morrison and Joel Paul, ex-
ecutive director of Tri-Coun-
ty Community Council,
interacted with the crowd,
calling for suggestions and
ideas to help mold the LESC
into a user-friendly activity
center.
Morrison touched on ideas
such as providing social out-
lets, cooking classes, exer-
cise. groups, game groups
and field-trips as some of
the new centers ideas for
curriculum. Morrison pro-
vided the group with signup
sheets to identify activities
in which they would like to
participate.
Paul suggested a cook-
out be held at the center in
the next few weeks to help
citizens come in and see
the space (located on Col-
lege Avenue) before the re-
moldeling is started. Mor-
rison hopes the center will
be finished before the be-
ginning of 2009. Both Paul
and Morrison shared with
the group that they did not
believe that a building was
essential to getting together
and many of the city's and
community's spaces will be
accessible to the group until
everything at the center is
up to par.
In an e-mail update,
Morrison said "I am in the
process of making arrange-
ments to have card tables
set up here at the center so
we can begin playing cards
and socializing. I will con-

Carpe





diem

By RON KELLEY


As I sit here in a crowded newspaper office, a swarm of
activity goes on around me. In the center of this storm of
busy industry, I sit quietly, reflecting on the events of the
last few days.
Anyone who knows me well will tell you that I am pas-
sionate about politics whether it be city, county, state or
national races. I worry about the war, the air, the forests
and oceans. I get angry about injustices, inequities, intoler-
ance and ineptitude. The loss of civil liberties, rights and
freedoms often occupies my mind. I am concerned about
apathy, ignorance, sinister deceptions and public indiffer-
ence. I spend countless hours pondering these things. Too
often, it is only when something momentous happens close
to me that I am lifted from my reveries and reminded of
what is truly important in this world.
Like most longtime DeFuniak Springs residents, I am
still dazed by the tragedies that have struck this commu-
nity over the last weekend.
I lost a wonderful friend. Wives lost their husbands,
daughters lost their fathers,.mothers lost their sons. There
were terrible, senseless accidents and assaults that have
left several local families hurting and dismayed.
In the face of such things, I am reminded that it is how
we treat each other that truly matters. Everything I men-
tioned above, all of it, rendered down to its simplest form,
is no more than how we treat one another. It's how we treat
our loved ones, our friends, our neighbors even how we
treat strangers, near and far. It's also about how we honor
and remember those who have gone before us and how we
provide for those who will follows us. It is about how we
treat each other.
I have no sermons to preach today, no life-lessons to im-
part. We must learn those things for ourselves, each in our
own way and in our own time. I only hope that you will
pause for a moment and give a thought about the people
around you and how you treat them. Have you kissed your
wife or husband, hugged your child, held the hand of a
friend? Have you helped a stranger? Have you done some-
one a favor, even when they didn't know? Can you say to
yourself at the end of the day, that you tried to make your
corner of the world a little better than it was when you
started the day? I hope so.
'For in the end, how we are remembered will depend on
how we treated those around us. As Emerson said, "There
is no history, only biography."




Editor,

Recently, numbers of huge blue signs were erected along
scenic Walton roadways. These commercial eyesores come
courtesy of the South Walton Tourist Development Coun-
cil and more tax money than they can reasonably spend.
The TDC plans to put up 49 of these beauties at a cost of
$260,000. That's over $5,306 a copy! .
The old signs, removed by the TDC, were small, attrac-
tive, natural wood and easily read. They blended with our
picturesque landscape. They cost only $300 each.
This is yet another example of your government and tax
dollars at work.
There is a justified, loud and growing consensus: The
signs must go!
While the new TDC signs would be apropos for a used
car lot, most private developments on Scenic 30A have
Graced their roadway with tasteful signs in harmony, not
contrast, with nature. Shouldn't the TDC comply with the
letter and spirit of scenic corridor guidelines as well?
Will the TDC attempt to justify spending an outrageous
amount of money on aesthetic fiascos? Or will the TDC do
the right thing and remove them? Certainly, any cost of
removal and replacement should be borne by overflowing
coffers of the offending TDC.
The TDC is hosting a sign workshop, March 26, 5:30
p.m., at the South Walton Coastal Branch Library. All con-
cerned are invited to attend this public forum.
Be there. Help us remove the blue blight from our beau-
tiful countryside and seaside.

Editor:
Words are inadequate when expressing our apprecia-
tion for all the volunteers so willing to help with the Chau-
tauqua Assembly in the Land of Summer, February 21-24,
2008. There were over 115 volunteers for the Assembly,
not including all the workers at the Community Center
and those who volunteered with the Panhandle Historic
Preservation Alliance in the Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood. We had two volunteers from Okaloosa County who
worked all four days, and even one from Alaska--a lady
who grew up here and was visiting during the assembly.
Kudo's to St. Agatha's for the delicious breakfast each
morning, to Ellen Mayfield and the Tea Ladies, the Wom-
en's Club spaghetti dinner and 5K run, and the Chautau-
qua Singers who performed each morning for devotion and
each afternoon for vespers.
What a joy it was to work with such a congenial, hard-
working, relaxed group of people who enjoyed working to-
gether to see the assembly become fruition. You were truly
enthusiastic ambassadors extending southern hospitality
with smiles on your faces. Thanks to the 10 homes around
the lake that hosted our porch parties on a beautiful Sun-
day afternoon. What a treat to hear and see the Panama
City Pipers and Drum Corps as they marched around the
lake and led the procession into the Methodist Church
for closing ceremonies and three taps of the gavel, end-
ing this Chautauqua Assembly season. Thanks to Dave's
Music, Muscogee Nation of Florida, Billy Carroll with his
homemade instruments, Skippy Hoffman'and her artistic
talent, Gayla Edwards from Tennessee making beautiful
pottery, Cecile Lindegrin and the Walton Middle School
Ensemble (wow), Grit and Grace, Jim Moore with his ear-
ly American toys, and Chuck Puckett's group playing and
singing. What a line-up!
We look forward, with anticipation, to the 2009 Assem-
bly in the Land of Summer February 19-22 with all new
programs keeping with the original Chautauqua move-
ment.

Editor,

I am surprised and disappointed that Patrick Casey's
2/28 article regarding a 2008 Florida Athletic Associa-
tion Hall of Fame inductee failed to mention a DeFuniak
Springs high school football coach who is also being hon-
ored.
During the dark days of segregation, Arthur Woodard
coached the Tivoli High School Atomic Tigers for twelve
seasons, from 1956 to 1967. Toiling in the obscurity caused
by laws prohibiting black athletes from competing with
their white counterparts, he compiled a 110-6-4 record,
and won eleven Big Bend Conference championships!
Woodard coached the legendary "Boogie" Hall, whose
name, ironically, was mentioned elsewhere in the 2/28 is-
sue of the Herald-Breeze. Hall went on to mentor innu-
merable football players as an assistant coach at Walton
High School after integration, including me.
It was participating with black players in Walton County
schools' athletic programs that helped me understand that
racism is abhorrent. When my family arrived in DeFuniak
Springs in 1973 there was still a "Colored Waiting Room"
at Lakeside Hospital, and twice as many "White Only" wa-
ter fountains as traffic lights in town (there was only one
traffic light). And there was Coach Woodard's pupil, Coach
Hall, teaching me that athletes from two races can be one
team, and must be if they are to achieve victory.
Coach Arthur Woodard was the segregated Florida In-
terscholastic Athletic Association's Coach of the Year in
1962-63. He will become a member of the integrated Flori-
da High Athletic Association Hall of Fame this year. That
the Herald Breeze failed to celebrate this is an unfortunate
oversight'at best, a reflection of our past failures at worst.
I'd like to think it is the latter, and take this opportunity
to congratulate Arthur Woodard and all the Tivoli High
School Atomic Tigers who won football games under his
direction.

Editor:
Kudos to Walton County Finance Director Bill Imfeld, of
his factual account of meetings with Sheriff Johnson. Bob
Hudson is to be commended for standing up for the "right
thing." He could have remained silent, but chose to set
the record straight. For too long, the taxpayers of Walton
County have been deceived with half-truths, innuendos
and finger-pointing. The problem with our Walton County
Sheriffs Office is not politics, nor is it vindictiveness. It is
plain and simply total lack of management, supervision
.and lack of leadership by the current administration.
What other constitutional office has cost the taxpayers of
the county well over $50,000 due to poor management? IRS
fines for failure to submit records on time, county checking
accounts being looted because of lack of personnel train-
ing, employee tax forms being issued in error because of
lack of oversight. All of these things taking place within the
same and the "chief cook" refuses to take any responsibil-
ity. The blame is always placed on someone; never at the
feet of one person who is supposed to be in charge. Blame
subordinates, other officers, and media, etc. Is the response
provided by the person elected to run the office responsibly?
That is, when you are able to get a response. How many
times have we read, "The sheriff is not available to take
your call," or "The sheriff is unavailable for comment," and
"The sheriff is tied up at the office"?
Failure by the WCSO to adhere to Florida statues, (not
turning in excess funds in the specified time) i still an on-
going problem. Couple this with lawsuits pending', due to:
suspicious firings of female employees, are further exam-
ples of mismanagement and lack of supervisory responsi-
bility.
For me, the straw that broke the camel's back was the
insult to taxpaying citizens of the county, when a public
meeting was requested and then refusing to attend the
meeting, which was set at his behest. To top if off, the
sheriff was not in his office as stated, on the record, by his
subordinate, but attending a function in another location.
There were many taxpayers who had driven long distances
to hear questions answered, truths divulged, and facts pre-
sented. These things were not forthcoming and the citizens
of Walton County should be afforded an honest, forthright
and personal accounting by its elected officials.
When November rolls around, I hope that the citizens
of Walton County will remember all of these mis-steps and
what it has cost in taxpayer dollars.
Tom Terrell,
Mossy Head



Editor:
The squabble that the BCC has with Sheriff Johnson
appears to have started when Sheriff Johnson needed ad-
ditional funds to operate the jail. My understanding was,
without sufficient funds, he would turn the jail over the
BCC on Jan., 1, 2007. BCC refused the request and the
jail was turned over the BCC, with Capt. Danny Glidewell
of the sheriffs department resigning in order to take over
management of the jail. He was given the additional funds
that Sheriff Johnson had requested to run the jail. (Doesn't
something here sounds fishy?)
Now as for Sheriff Johnson not' returning a phone call to
Commissioner Larry Jones, that's a little like the pot calling
the kettle black. Does Commissioner Jones pick and choose
whose calls he will return? I know that he has not returned
my call, and from what I have heard on WZEP, mine is not
the only one he has not returned.
What do you have to do to talk to your commissioner? I
have been out to his nice little brick office in Mossy Head
(which I feel sure our tax dollars paid for) and didn't find
him there either. One thing for sure, he hasn't been in my
area of his district. Our streets can attest to that.
My personal opinion is all that jargon that is going on
is political. If you aren't in with the good ole boys and the
BCC, your concerns don't matter.
We need new blood in this county government.

Editor,

The New Harmony Baptist Church would like to recog-
nize Deputy Dustin Burlison of the Walton County Sheriffs
Department for his outstanding accomplishment in appre-
hending the thief that had broken into our church.
We appreciate his diligence in watching out, for not
only for our property, but for us as individuals. If you see
a deputy today, remember he is putting his life on the line
to protect you and we need to thank them for a job that is
thankless and unappreciated. God bless all the deputies.

With spring break coming
up for students in Walton

Sheriffs Office and the Pax-
ton High School teamed up
so that students in grades
nine through 12 could learn
something about beach safe-


Sgt. Jimmy Fannin of the
Walton County Sheriffs
Office Beach Unit was the
guest speaker. The students
were told about the warning
flag system and what to also
do if caught in a rip current.


The laws dealing with mi-
norsin possession of alcohol
and what the consequences
were also discussed.
Beach safety was the
main topic, and what the
students can do to be safe if
going to the beach.

Mossy Headz music festival rolls on for year four


By CHRIS MANSON
This year's Mossy Headz
music festival the fourth so
far and first to be presented
by In My Tree Live will
include national, regional,
and local artists. Fort Wal-
ton Beach's Dream Factory
Studios will run the elabo-
rate sound system, and hor-
ticulturist James V. Horton
is furnishing plants and
custom bouquets.
Sean Sullivan, drum-
mer with Mossy Headz acts
Green Hit and Reed Waddle,
is a partner in In My'Tree
Live. He said this year's
Mossy Headz has entered
"a more environmentally-
conscious realm. We're pro-

MOSSY HEADZ 2008, an intimate single-stage festival
set directly on the sand-bottom Shoal River, allows music
fans to interact with.kop national, regional, and local musi-
cians. Twenty-four bidss and artists are scheduled for the
April 4-6 event. Patrons can also enjoy vendors, canoeing,
gallery art, and camping.


friends and musicians to
play to."
"In My Tree is bringing in
more diverse acts," said Bra-
ley, who also performs with
his band The Mossy Headz
Boys. "You can talk about
this being the next step."
In My Tree Live teamed
up with Seaside's 30A Radio
(107.3) for a series of pro-
grams featuring this year's
Mossy Headz artists. The
shows will air every Monday
night prior to the festival.
Despite the addition of
nationally-recognized art-
ists, Sullivan said Mossy
Headz continues to repre-
sent the local musical com-
munity.
"It's still the same peo-
ple," said Braley. "The roles
have changed, but Sean has
been working behind the
scenes for years. Now he's
organizing it. It's always
been a grass-roots effort. We
have the same people build-
ing the stage, putting in the
effort."
Past festivals have at-
tracted more than the fans
who regularly see these
bands at the local clubs.
"The locals in this area hiave
embraced this event," said
Braley. "We've got represen-
tation from every crowd -
day-trippers and locals. And
you have the young kids
who want to go camping and
,be where everyone is."
At $40 for pre-sale tickets
covering all three days and
$20 for one-day admission,
Sullivan said the event was
financially feasible. Morris-
sette added that security ef-
forts have been beefed up to
prevent trespassing.
New to this year's festival
are local favorites Dave De-
Monki, a singer-songwriter-
violinist, and Walton County
solo performer Marc Harris.
"We're connecting ripples,"
said Sullivan. "Instead of a
bunch of guys at the side of
the pond skipping stones, we
convince them all to jump
in."
Braley is especially ex-
cited about the appearance
of Col. Bruce Hampton, a
veteran performer who has
opened for Phish and Wide-


spread Panic. "This is an
important step," said Bra-
ley. "We intentionally went
after him."
Other national acts ap-
pearing on the Mossy Headz
stage include the Burnin'
Smyrnans from New Smyr-
na Beach, FL., and Fort Lau-
derdale's Heavy Pets. "They
are the jam band act that's
coming up," said Sullivan of
the latter. "They have two
lead guitarists, and they're
both phenomenal."
Sunday's program is de-
voted largely to Walton
County musicians, including
the Sweater Puppets, Hub-
ba Hubba, and the Steenos
with Washboard Jackson.

The official Web site,
www.mossyheadz.com, al-
lows fans to purchase tick-
ets for this year's festival


and view footage from previ-
ous events. At myspace.com/
mossyheadz, visitors can
sample music from many of
the artists appearing at the


4th Official Mossy Headz
Festival. Tickets are
also available at the Cham-
pa Shop in Destin, (850)
654-3161.


AMONG THE NATIONAL ACTS taking the stage for
Mossy Headz 2008 are Col. Bruce and the Quark Alliance.
"This year's lineup is bigger and better than ever," says Matt
Braley, who has been hosting the music festival on his prop-
erty since 2005.

Crestview contractor

killed in vehicle crash


Prominent Crestview
building contractor Mike Jo-
sey was killed on March 16
when his motorcycle collided
with a van in Crestview.
Investigators report that
Ruth Lake Lyons, 85, of
Crestview, was driving a
1993 Chrysler van north
on Ferdon Boulevard and
was attempting to turn left
onto Commerce Drive when
she pulled into the path of
a southbound 2004 Harley
Davidson motorcycle, oper-
ated by Kevin Michael Jo-
sey, 44, of Crestview, with
his 15-year-old son, Wesley,
as a passenger. Both were
transported to North Oka-
loosa Medical Center, where
Mike Josey was pronounced


dead. Wesley was treated at
the same hospital for non-
life threatening injuries.
According to a release
from Crestview Police De-
partment, Mike Josey was
not wearing a helmet at the
time of the crash, but Wes-
ley reportedly was.
Josey was past presi-
dent of the Crestview Area
Chamber of Commerce, and
president-elect of the Build-
ing Industry Association of
Okaloosa-Walton Counties.
He also ran, unsuccessfully,
for the Okaloosa County
Board of County Commis-
sioners in 2000.
Charges are pending the
conclusion of a traffic homi-
cide investigation.


Four juveniles



arrested


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office responded to a
call in the area of Turquoise
Beach Drive and East Har-
bor view Road in south Wal-
ton County on March 13,
2008 at around 1:29 p.m. in
reference to four juveniles
that had reportedly jumped
over a privacy fence and
were apparently going to
try to steal a boat that had
been chained to a tree. The
juveniles used a pair of bolt
cutters that they had al-
legedly taken from another
residence.
The juveniles, one female


and three males, were ap-
prehended and each was
charged with one count
of criminal mischief, one
count of criminal trespass,
one count of possession of
burglary tools, one count of
theft and one count of at-
tempted theft of the boat.

The juveniles were trans-
ported to the Walton County
Sheriffs substation and the
Department of Juvenile
Justice was notified. All of
the juveniles were released
to the custody of their par-
ents.

A BORROW PIT SAND MINE

COMING NEAR YOU SOON!

An open letter to

Walton Coanty Citizens and the BCC
If you live in a residential area and near property zoned
Agricultural, don't be surprised if someone starts a dirt pit and
mine next to your property!
You say that can't happen?
Walton County Ordinance 2007-21 allows for an exception to
the rules that protect you from the noise, vibrations, dump truck,
traffic, bad places for kids to play, disturbance to the
environment, fish kills, possible well water contamination (and
you can add your own list) caused by sand pits.
Look at the Land Use Map. If you live within shouting distance
to land zoned agriculture, you may as well consider yourself next
to land classed as heavy industrial. To stop this, the BCC needs to
publicly affirm that they did not intend to allow large scale com-
mercial surface extraction in land zoned agricultural. The BCC
had good intentions to correct existing pits and passed Ordinance
2007-21, but also created a misunderstanding. The criteria for
approval do not contain clear cut language guaranteeing the peace
and enjoyment of your property.
A "borrow pit" on agricultural land means if ranchers or
farmers, on a one time basis, dig up soil and use it on their own
property as fill and then make a pond from the excavation to water
livestock or use the excavation as a planted area that is OK and
consistent with agricultural activities and with the rule. Using
agricultural land however, near homes and residential land to cre-
ate a commercial surface sand mine to sell soil with all the atten-
dant dump truck traffic and objectionable consequences is not
what was intended.
We need the BCC to publicly affirm that is not what they had
intended and modify the ordinance by establishing clear language
that prohibits commercial surface mining in agricultural zoned
land. We do need soil, but the pit needs to be located well away
from homes and wetlands. Remember, the sand is what filters your
drinking water.
We need the commissioners to re-write the ordinance. Save our
natural resources, protect endangered species, our environment,
creeks, rivers and the liberty to have peace and enjoyment of our
homes and property. Once this is done, they can move on to fixing
the damage caused by past and present pits.


Please contact your county commissioner and request imme-
diate public affirmation that commercial excavations are not
allowed in land classed as agricultural. To protect your property,
do this now!
Mark Madamba

"It's interesting to see
how it begins," said Riggs.
"We see some kids go from
recorder to whatever instru-
ment in high school."
Despite the school sys-
tem's emphasis on FCAT
and pending state legisla-
tion that could take more
middle school students out
of music programs, Riggs
said her own classes have
not suffered too much.
"The funding has been
good for this school," said
Riggs. "Superintendent Car-
lene Anderson has always
been supportive. The pain-
ful thing for me is, because
there is so much pressure on
reading, a lot of kids have
been pulled from music and
art. I don't know what the
solution is. It's difficult."

getting the word about the
importance of music edu-
cation is through Music in
Our Schools Month. The
annual March celebration
was spearheaded by the Na-
tional Association for Music
Education, a century-old or-
ganization that focuses on
the advancement of music
education.
S"I see how it affects the
students," she said. "Music
is a big part of everyone's
life. It really transfers to all
aspects of learning. Studies
have shown that kids who
play piano have improved
reading skills.
"Reading is very rhyth-
mic, poetic, and musical. One
program we have is 'Tune
into Reading' for Hispanic
kids. It takes songs they
know and translates them
to English lyrics." Riggs and


the school's art teacher both
spend at least half an hour
each day undergoing read-
ing training.
Riggs' fourth-grade class
is currently preparing its
spring project, a student
narrative that sprang from
the premise of being strand-
ed on a desert island. The
students developed dialogue
and characters, and the pro-
gram titled "Boat Ride to
Nowhere" has evolved into
an opera to be performed at
the school next month.
The school also has a
singing group called the Bee
Bops, founded by Melissa
Beasley, that has performed
extensively. More informa-

Freeport physician


indicted for health


care fraud


By BR UCE COLLIER
A federal grand jury in the
Northern District of Florida
has returned an indictment
charging Freeport physi-
cian Dr. Robert L. Ignasiak
Jr. with 54 counts of health
care fraud. The indictment
includes 14 counts of health
care fraud, two counts of
dispensing controlled sub-
stances that allegedly led
to the deaths of two people,
and 38 counts of unlawfully
dispensing controlled sub-
stances.
Ignasiak, 52, is owner and
operator of Freeport'Medi-
cal Clinic. A press release
issued by the U.S. Attorney
states that Ignasiak alleg--


edly prescribed controlled
substances, including oxy-
codone, morphine, hydro-
codone, diazepam, and oth-
ers "without determining a
sufficient medical necessity
for the prescription df these
substances and in quanti-
ties and dosages that would
cause patients to abuse and
misuse the substances." Ac-
cording to the release, the
indictment also alleges that
Ignasiak was aware that the
patients were addicts, were
misusing the substances, or
were "doctor shopping" in
an effort to obtain addition-
al quantities of drugs. This
reportedly resulted to two
deaths.


Ignasiak is also alleged
to have caused pharmacies
to "file claims with Medicaid
and other health care ben-
efit programs for filling the
false and fraudulent pre-
scriptions he issued," which
were "issued outside the
usual course of professional
practice."
The counts alleging the
two deaths carry potential
sentences of 20 years-to-life
imprisonment upon convic-
tion. Fines and forfeitures
are also sought. The indict-
ment reportedly comes as
the result of a four-year
joint investigation by the
North Florida Health Care
Fraud Task Force.

stride, with its third-in-a-
row production of a play by
William Shakespeare. Di-
rector Clint Mahle contin-
ues the line of comedies he
began in previous seasons
with "The Merry Wives of
Windsor" and "The Tam-
ing of the Shrew," offering
"Twelfth Night." The pro-
duction opens Wednesday,
March 19, and continues
through Saturday, March
22. All performances are at
7:30 p.m. in the Sprint The-
ater at OWC's Mattie Kelly
Fine Arts Center on the
Niceville campus.
"Twelfth Night" was writ-
ten around 1601, and many
scholars consider the play
to be among Shakespeare's
best-written comedies. The
complicated plot deals with
shipwrecked twins, mis-
taken identities, and a lot
of foolish behavior over love.
The verse spoken by the
characters contains some of
Shakespeare's most-quoted
lines, including the opening,
"If music be the food of love,
play on...." Other famous
expressions include phrases
like "devout coward" and
"Some are born great, some
achieve greatness, some
have greatness thrust upon
them...."
The play also deals with
the theme of knowing one's
place in society, a foreign
notion to modern audiences,
especially Americans. As a
result, some of the jokes and
humor may come off as cruel.
Still, everyone gets more or
less what's coming to them,
good or bad. The title refers


to the old-fashioned English
holiday celebrated on Jan.
6, the "twelfth night" af-
ter Christmas, when tricks
and jokes were traditionally
played. Shakespeare may
have written the play to or-
der for such a celebration.
As with last season's
"Shrew," Mahle chose to set
the play in non-Elizabethan
times, in this case the early
1960s. Instead of doublets
and hose, the characters
wear beatnik black, go-go
or Cuban-heel boots, mini-
skirts, and tie-dye smocks.
Love beads, peace signs,
and Nehru jackets are all
over the stage. The music
ranges from cool Miles Da-
vis to early Rolling Stones
and Beatles.
It works in some ways
and not in others. "Twelfth
Night" contains a num-
ber of songs, and we. can
only guess what the origi-
nal tunes were. Instead of
singing to music, the actors
"recite" the songs to the ac-
companiment of Greenwich
Village coffee house bongos
and finger-snaps. It's an in-
spired bit of business, goofy
and sincere all at once.
The period-change
doesn't always translate
for the "noble" characters,
though. Aristocratic Duke
Orsino (Bruce Culpepper)
looks like a Playboy man-
sion cool-jazz swinger, and
rightly so. However, Count-
ess Olivia (Christa Whittak-
er) and her servants Maria
(Suzanne Faison) and Mal-
volio (Fraser Sherman) look
like they're in street clothes.
They are nice street clothes,
but they give little sugges-
tion of the characters' social

Greer and Danny Thomas in OWC's "Twelfth Night."

standing. Ditto for Robert
Drake's plainclothes Sir An-
drew Aguecheek. This is no
reflection on their acting,
just their appearance.
Costume designer Linda
Corley does score more hits
than misses, however, with
the identical twins Viola and
Sebastian (Kittie Greer and
Phil Christenot), dressed in
groovy jackets and peg-leg
pants. Also notable is the
clown Feste, played by Val-
erie Bogar with dreadlocks
and loose, Rasta-style bag-
gies.
If you have seen either of
the other OWC Shakespeare
productions, you'll recognize
the set, a two-story simula-
tion of Shakespeare's Globe
stage. Every square inch
is painted in a melange of
Tudor-Restoration-Baroque
art, and there are more
swinging doors than Macy's
department store. It's an ac-
tor's playground. This life-
sized toy box was designed
and built to break down and
travel by Mahle, technical
director Bob Whittaker, and
a gifted pack of obsessive
OWC tech-ninjas. It's suit-
able for about 400 years'
worth of theater styles.
The floor space in front
of'the stage facade is wide,
offering the actors ample
room to play to the three-
quarter round audience set-
up, common at most Sprint
productions. Mahle gives his
actors good basic flight pat-
terns, and encourages them
to cover all the bases. This
sometime leads actors to
race around, losing words,
especially when the pace
gets fast, which it does.
Performances are uni-
formly strong, with no one
hanging back. Among the
standouts are Bruce Culep-
per. as the love-obsessed,
slightly-crazed Orsino, Kit-
tie Greer as Viola, alter-
nately strutting like a boy
and melting like a girl, and
Valerie Bogar as Feste. Bog-
ar has a great stage face,
loaded with expressions,
and energy to spare. Fraser
Sherman rises to the occa-
sion as strait-laced steward
Malvolio. It's a tough role,
meant to elicit both con-
tempt and sympathy, not an
easy combination.
Also worthy of mention
are Suzanne Faison and Mi-
chelle Rhodes as Maria and
Fabian. Faison plays Maria
like a convent schoolgirl
gone bad. Rhodes is a tall
young lady, and her stack-
heel pink boots would make
Nancy Sinatra jealous. I
have seen Rhodes' work over
the years, and I was happy
to see her bloom in this sup-
porting role.
OWC once more deserves
praise and support in its an-
nual commitment to present-
ing Shakespeare, a challeng-
ing playwright whose work
often gets more lip-service
than actual production. It's
worth a trip to Niceville to
see this company of young
and older performers bring
a classic to life.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 20,2008


PAXTON

ballfield, the Council agreed
last month to request an en-
ergy usage review from Gulf
Power. Gulf Power prepared
a report that included typi-
cal usage rates for a variety
of appliances, and a list of
proposals for increasing en-
ergy efficiency. Dixie Youth
League (DYL) president
Christa Mitchell attended
the workshop, having re-
ceived a copy of the report
shortly beforehand. The bills
under consideration were
for the concession stand.
Mitchell and the Council
discussed various specif-
ics for cost-saving, includ-
ing use of ice chests rather
than refrigerators for cold
storage. "There's things
you could cut back on," said
Council member McRae.
"I don't have any problem
with making the power [bill]
go down," said Mitchell. "I
guess we have no choice."
Mitchell told the Council
she would review the report
and discuss it with DYL.
Council member Sexton
asked the city clerk to check
with other cities in Walton
County to see if the county
is contributing toward pay-
ment of their ballfield ex-
penses. "If the county is,
helping them, it wouldn't
hurt to see if they'd help us,"
she said.
The Council and Mitch-
ell agreed that DYL should
be responsible for paying
its share only for months
the league actually uses the
field. Mitchell suggested the
months of January through
July. McRae called the pro-
posal "an excellent compro-
mise."
Mitchell expressed con-
cerns over the continuing vi-
ability of DYL. "We poured
so much of our money into
the field last year," adding
that Walton County has
told DYL to look for other
sources of funding. When
Mitchell raised the question
of DYL possibly not being
able to pay its share of pow-
er bills, Sexton said, "We'll
cross that bridge when we
come to it."
McRae suggested at-
tempting to get corporate
sponsorships. "We're doing
that," said MItchell. Also
discussed were attempts to
solicit donations, including
those of necessary equip-
ment. The ballfield report-
edly has urgent need of an




UPGRADE


of those operating the sys-
tems.
BCC Chairman Larry
Jones spoke on the upgrade
and the past performance of
all involved, "Look at what
the board has done. We take
our service to the people and
their security very seriously.
We try and afford all of our
citizens every opportunity
to be safe."

air conditioner unit.
The regular monthly
Council meeting began at
7 p.m. Following routine
business, it was decided to
renew the Department of
Transportation's contract to
clean Paxton's roadsides, on
the same terms.

The next item on the
agenda was a proposal that
Paxton enact an ordinance
governing restrictions for
registered sex offenders.
Bytell told the Council that
Paxton has no such ordi-
nance, and that there are
currently no restrictions on
where such persons can live,
or prohibiting them from
city parks or recreation ar-
eas. "Some have expressed
concerns," said Bytell.
The Council agreed that
an ordinance is necessary.
Bytell said she would get a
copy of the ordinances en-
acted last year in DeFuniak
Springs as a guideline and
prepare a draft for the Coun-
cil's review in April.
The Council then gave
further consideration to re-
newal of a lease by the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) of a substation at
the south end of town. As per
last month's instructions,
Bytell submitted a revision
of the lease with proposed
deletions and changes. The
new lease limits the area
to the building only, rather
than the surrounding acre-
age. Bytell had struck out
language providing for auto-
matic renewal of the lease,
and also advised the Coun-
cil to consider liability in-
surance rates. Melton asked
for language providing for
termination with 90 days'
written notice. Bytell said
she would submit a.draft to
WCSO by March 31.
Sexton raised a ques-
tion discussed at an previ-
ous Council meeting, that
of swapping the substation
with the current town of-
fices. Melton agreed with
her. Armstrong and Kemp
opposed s swap. McRae said
he was neutral, but advised
that the Council look at the
costs of such a move. "It
won't be just a simple move,"
he said. The Council mem-
bers debated various pros
and cons such as office size,
convenience of the public,
and the potential dangers
associated with locating a


law enforcement facility in
the middle of town, rather
than at the edge. Mayor
Smith observed that sub-
stations often house violent
individuals. The Council
agreed to give the question
further consideration.
The Council then decided
to sign a contract with U.S.
Tank to provide water tank
maintenance services for
the city. Bytell compared
the proposed new contract
with the existing mainte-
nance provider's agreement,
and explained the differ-
ences. Sexton moved to ac-
cept the new contract with
U.S. Tank. McRae moved to
remind the present provider
(Utility Services) to paint
the water tank, as prom-
ised, before terminating its
services. The motions were
passed.
The clerk then advised the
Council that she needs spe-
cific information on the pro-
posed lease of the municipal
airport hangar, including
what is being leased, dimen-
sions, and proposed lease
price. It was agreed that the
hangar would be leased as
office space, but a nearby
lean-to was excluded. Bytell
also needed these specifics
to draft a lease agreement.
The city's livestock barn
was next on the agenda. The
Council heard a report from
on various safety issues,
including termite damage,
loose steps, and other po-
tential hazards. It was de-
cided' that a Council mem-
ber would visit the barn and
make an assessment before
final recommendations and
repair orders were made.
It was also decided that the
city would furnish materials
for repair. Dale Anderson,
from Rocking S Auctions, of-
fered to furnish labor.
A presentation followed
from the Tri-Cities Cham-
ber of Commerce, serving
Paxton, Lockhart and Flora-
la. The spokesman said that
Florala will start holding
bingo games as fundraisers,
and that Paxton could ben-
efit. "We're open to help you
whenever we can," he said.
The Council decided to
sell the city's station wagon
as surplus property. Mayor
Smith said that Walton
County had agreed to apply
for grant funds affecting the
city, and that a future land
use hearing on Firestone's

BCC Vice-Chair Sara Co-
mander said, "I'm pleased
with the upgrades. We work
hard to keep the citizens
safe and we will continue to
do so in the future."
Commissioner Kenneth
Pridigen said, "I think they
are doing a fine job at the
EOC and they have a lot to
deal with. They deal with
life and death everyday and


do it in a very professional
manner. They are doing a

request for change of land
use designation had been
set for March 17.
Bytell's attorney report
advised the Council that
it had the option to revise
the date for city elections
to coincide with the date
for national elections. At


present, they are different.
Bytell said that research
shows that voter turnout is
aided by consolidating elec-
tion dates. It was decided to
adopt a city charter amend-
ment to that effect, and to
set it for first and second
readings and public hear-


ing.
Miscellaneous depart-
ment reports were made on
utility cut-off notices, lawn
mower repair, and renova-
tion of light fixtures on the
town hall property. The
meeting adjourned at 8:18
p.m.

an effort to hold their crews
together. At Peters' request,
a workshop to review the
sewer master plan will be
scheduled for late March.
Patrick Schlosser, repre-
senting the proposed Por-
tofino Park development,
asked the Council to grant
an extension to the time
deadline for payment of im-
pact fees required of devel-
opers. These fees are due
before a development order
can be issued. No develop-
ment order has been issued
for this project. The Council
granted a six-month exten-
sion to the fee deadline. It
was reported that more re-
quests for extension of pay-
ment deadlines are antici-
pated.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger introduced Bob
Apgar, attorney for the
Freeport Plantation devel-
opers. Apgar said the De-
partment of Community


Affairs (DCA) has asked
for some minor changes to
the proposed ordinance to
amend the Comprehensive
Plan and the Future Land
Use Map which will permit
development of a research
park on U.S. 331 near Owls
Head. As a result, a Capital
Improvement Plan. (CIP)
for traffic infrastructure
improvements was agreed
upon. Henninger pointed
out that this was a planning
document to advise the state
that future needs have been
reviewed. She said the CIP
does not commit the city to
capital funding for improve-
ments to state or federal
road systems. The ordinance
for the amendments was ap-
proved.

The Council also ap-
proved a request for a revi-
sion to the agreement with
Okaloosa Gas for distribu-
tion of gas taxes.

By CHRIS MANSON
Renee Riggs, music
teacher at West DeFuniak
Elementary School, has
seen the success of music
education from her level
of instruction up to high
school. Her son is a member
of the Walton High School
band. "Harry Patzig is an
excellent band director," she
said. "They've been to sev-
eral ensemble competitions,
and recently did the state
concert festival and blew ev-
eryone away."
But as good as these pro-
grams are, Riggs said the

number of student partici-
pants is low. Her biggest con-
cern is developing children's
interest in music from kin-
dergarten. The 25-30 min-
ute classes Riggs instructs
attempt to squeeze in all of
the school's students. "Our
schedule is pretty tight," she
said.
Kindergarten students
begin to learn preparatory
concepts for reading music
and start to develop healthy
singing voices. "I've seen a
lot of children open up," said
Riggs. "The songs are cho-
sen because they're easy to
sing."
Riggs' first-graders pick
up from there. Grades two
and three implement a com-


puter program called Music
Ace. "It's a piano keyboard
hooked up to a computer,
and it teaches the names of
the keys and the lines and
spaces on the music staff,"
she said. Ear training is also
included at this level.
Fourth- and fifth-graders
take regular lessons, in part
from textbooks. They also
receive training in sing-
ing and movement. The
students also have ample
opportunities to play in-
struments, including hand
drums, maracas, recorders,
and piano. Riggs said this
hands-on approach prepares

Dear Auntie Em,


Spring has sprung and me and my whole family are miserable. Everywhere we look
there is nothing but a thin haze of yellow pollen covering everything is sight. Our eyes
water, we can't breath and our regular allergy medicines don't seem to be helping a
whole lot. Any advice on how to survive spring?
Wheezing in Walton
(Name and address withheld on request.)
Dear Wheezing,
Ah, spring in the Walton county. If the pollen doesn't get you, the spring breakers
will.
You are not alone, hon. We are all suffering. In order to answer your question, as an
old friend use to say, I got out my Kojack lollipop, put on my Dan Tana detective shoes
and hit the street to talk to the experts. In my search for the skinny on pollen, I ran
into Dr. James Howell from Doctors Medical Center of Walton County.
This is what the Doc had to say, "If you are asthmatic, make sure to take your
medications faithfully. Stay inside if you can. Avoid yard work at the height of this
pollen season and if you have to do it, wear a mask with a good filter on it. Really pay
attention to your hydration levels. It helps with the headaches associated with the
pollen, and take antihistamines if you can. Also, wash those air-conditioning filters or
replace them if they are disposable. This should provide some relief."
Great advice, Doc, and thanks for sharing with our readers. Wheezing, hope you and
your family are feeling better fast. Until next week, here's hoping that you never run
out of Kleenex and God bless.

On Friday, March 7, the
3rd-5th grade students of
Freeport Elementary School
attended a FCAT Pep Rally
showcasing the theme "Are
you Smarter than a Wild-
cat"? FES staff performed
their own imaginative ver-
sion of the popular game
show, Are you Smarter than
a Fifth Grader? It was de-
signed to encourage the stu-
dents to do their best during
FCAT testing. Not only was
it informative, uplifting, and
motivational, it was light-
hearted and entertaining.
It quickly became apparent
that the "FCAT" wasn't as
smart as the 5th, 4th, or 3rd
graders!


enthusiastically led the students


After the game show,
faculty members enthusi-
astically led the students in
FCAT cheers and helped the
students "raise the roof" as
they chanted about "beating
the FCAT" and "being the
champions." FES students
loved the spirit-filled atmo-
sphere and were given a
chance to "yell and scream"
their way to success. It was
a fun-filled activity guar-
anteed to get the children
primed for success on the
,FCAT and relieve a little of
kthe stress associated with
test preparation. "2 bits, 4
bits, 6 bits, a dollar, if you
can beat the FCAT, stand
up and holler."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 20,2008 PAGE 5-B

Movie Review


"Horton Hears a Who!" does comic justice to Dr. Seuss


By BRUCE COLLIER
Jimmy Hayward's and Steve Martino's team-
directing of "Horton Hears a Who!" appears to be an
exception to the rule about too many cooks and spoiled
broth. Ditto for the screenplay, adapted by Ken Daurio
and Cinco Paul from Dr. Seuss (alias Theodor Seuss
Geisel)'s 1954 children's classic. It makes sense, though.
Animated films are definitively team efforts.
This film truly deserves a its "G" rating. There's no
swearing, vulgar words, or tiresome bodily function
jokes the latter now a virtual staple in all Hollywood
products. "Horton" offers the formidable vocal talents of
Jim Carrey as the heroic title elephant, Steve Carell as
the mayor of Whoville, and the one-and-only Carol
Burnett as Jane, "the Sour Kangaroo." Other voices
come from Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Isla Fisher, and
radio personality Charles Osgood as the narrator.
Most Americans know the Seuss canon, which
includes "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," the "Cat in
the Hat" series, "Green Eggs and Ham," and a shelf of
others. Seuss's success lay not only in his eccentric
poetry/prose, but also the world he created and drew.
The pages of his books show a cheerfully surrealistic
landscape populated by Who's, Sneetches, Grinches,
and more familiar fish and fowl, wildly colorful but
strangely human. Each tale amuses and imparts a


moral, never on6e preaching. Like all true classics, one
never outgrows them.
Classics deserve special treatment, and Horton and
his friends get their due. Horton, a goodhearted
elephant, stumbles on a "speck" blown by the wind onto
a clover plant. The speck turns out to be the home
world of the Who's, a harmonious society administered
by a mayor and council. Horton and the mayor find
themselves in communication, and the elephant
promises to relocate the speck to a safe place.
Unfortunately for Horton and his new friend, neither
the Who's nor Horton's fellow jungle animals believe in
the other world's existence. Horton faces opposition
from the Kangaroo, the mayor from his stubborn
council.
Still, Horton vows to keep his word: "I meant what I
said, and I said what I meant, an elephant's faithful,
100 percent." What follows is an increasingly higher-
stakes pursuit. Horton is hounded by a murderous
vulture, malicious but organized monkeys, and a host of
natural obstacles. The Who's stand by in horror as their
world is buffeted, blown and threatened with boiling oil.
Will Horton prevail?
In case you haven't read the book or seen the made-
for-television cartoon from 1970, you'll have to buy a
ticket to know more. It's a tribute to the skills of the


filmmakers that one can still get excited following a
story, even knowing the ending. To be sure, the
film has a few non-Seuss embellishments and sly nods
to contemporary genres like kung fu and anime, but the
good doctor is still in at the core. The vocal talent is
considerable, from Carrey's uncharacteristically gentle
Horton to Will Arnett's Rasputin-like Vlad the Vulture.
It's always good to hear from Carol Burnett, even if she
looks like a kangaroo, complete with "pouch-schooled"
joey. Carell has fun as the beleaguered mayor,
persuading his fellow Who's to put their trust in the
"big invisible elephant in the sky."
No doubt more films will follow of other Seuss
classics like "If I Ran the Circus," "The 500 Hats of
Bartholomew Cubbins," and "McElligot's Pool." As long
as people keep having kids, there will be a guaranteed.
audience for such movies, whoever does the talking.

REV. DR. SATTERWHITE


Following

Christ

Alone

By Rev. Dr. Charles
Satterwhite, Pastor

Jesus said to him, "If I
will that he remain till I
come, what is that to you?
You follow Me." John 21.22;
Luke 14.26-7
There is a disconnect be-
tween the results of nation-
al polls concerning religion
and religious reality. For
instance, upwards of 90 per-
cent of Americans claim to
believe in God, and a large
majority of those claim to be
Christians.
If that's true, where are
all these followers of Christ?
It would seem that many
people believe it's possible
to follow Christ and follow
other religions, or the ways
of this wicked world at the
same time.
Jesus made it clear, in
His teachings that His "reli-
gion" is an exclusive one: "I
am the way, the truth, and
the life. No one comes to the
Father except through Me"
(John 14.6).
In a modern, pluralistic
culture, that doesn't sit well.
And it didn't sit well with
Peter who was momentarily
confused about "follower-
ship." To Peter, Jesus said
(paraphrase), "Don't worry
about what others are do-
ing. You follow Me."
When someone asks you
what you are (religiously
speaking), what do you say?
"I'm a (name of your denomi-
nation)"? Or do you say, "I'm
a follower of Jesus Christ-a
Christian"?
In an age that values tol-
erance and rejects absolutes,
it will never be popular to
say, "I follow only One."
Christianity can be con-
densed into four words: ad-
mit, submit, commit, and
transmit.

The assurance of life

through the empty tomb
By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


The great truth about
Easter is not just the empty
tomb of our Lord Christ. We
are promised another world,
to be sure, yet there is some-
thing more for those who be-
lieve and trust in Christ for
the here and now. What are
the signs by which we can
know that we have received
eternal life?
There is an inner power
deep inside that tells us to
go on steadily, steadily on-
ward. Let us forth, day by
day, for our Lord Christ. We
are to remember the empty
cross and the empty tomb
and there is a power within
which tells us that He died
and rose again for us.
Again, there is an upward
look. What is the character-
istic look from your eyes,
what is the longing of your
very soul? Don't let your
horizon be limited by the
mountains of doubt. Look


up, believer, where nothing
comes between you and in-
finite life given to us by the
Lord Christ. Let your face
bear the reflected glory of
God.
Further, there is an un-
foldingbeauty. Don't let your
life be like a stone which,
though warmed by the sun,
yet reveals no movement.
Let it be like the field which,
warmed by our Lord, blooms
with a thousand flowers of
goodness and grace. Reflect
more wonderfully the image
of our living Lord.
Still, there is an eternal
hope. When we have eternal
life, then this life is beyond
defeat, and is filled with vic-
tory no matter what hap-
pens. Where is the sting of
death? Where is the victory
of the grave9 We can thank
God who gives us the vic-
tory through our Lord Jesus
Christ.


Ah, if ours is the
inner poser, the
upward look, the
folding beauty, the
eternal hope. And
all life, life here
and there, is one
in Christ! It is all
unified by the Lord
Christ, because of
His resurrection.
Happy Easter!

N.C. tops the poll, Williams faces his foes


By CHUCK HINSON
After North Carolina's
dominance on the court this
past weekend, head coach
Roy Williams and his Wolf-
pack are going to the big
game seeded as No. 1. They
will be matched up with
the Kansas, the team that
he left just a few years ago
to return to his alma mat-


ter.
Finishing his impressive
season at North Carolina
at 32-3, Williams said he
is ready for the challenge
and the Jayhawk fans are
out for revenge on the coach
many have listed as one of
the most hated men in Kan-
sas, all because he left the
state.


In 2003, when Williams
left Kansas, fans and busi-
nesses printed up "Benedict
Williams" t-shirts in the out-
rage about him leaving after
just taking the team to the
national finals in 2003. All
the problems for Williams
and his disgruntled Kansas
fans began when he bolted
from Kansas to take over


the coaching job at North
Carolina.

It is possible that the two
might meet up in the "big
game" if all the cards are
played correctly and the
Jayhawks are favored to
take the No. 2 spot against
the North Carolina Wolf-
pack.

Tony Stewart came in sixth
and seventh.

For his triumph win at
Bristol, Burton earned 190


points in 506 laps. Kevin
Harvick earned 175 points
in his 506 laps, while Boyer
got 170, Biffle earned 160
and Earnhardt Jr. racked
up 155 points towards the
chase for the cup.

As of this past weekend,

USF extends


Leavitt's contract


By CHUCK HINSON
South Florida's football
head coach Jim Leavitt ac-
cepted a two-year extension
on his contract.
He started with the Bulls'
program 11 years ago and
this past season, then led
them all the way to the No.
2 spot in the national rank-
ings. He also took them to
the Sun Bowl and concluded
the most successful year in
the school's athletic history.
His new salary pushes the
coach up to $1.5 million be-
ginning next season, which
is an increase of $500,000
from 2007.


It was reported that the
University of South Florida
will pay Leavitt a reported
$12.6 million over the next
seven seasons, with his an-
nual salary increasing by
$100,000 each year of the
seven-year contract.

For USF fans and alum-
ni, they feel that he will
remain with the university
for many more years after
turning down the coaching
position with Alabama and
Kansas State.
Leavitt is 79-47 in 11 sea-
sons, with a finishing season
record of 9-4.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 20,2008 PAGE 11-B


Tivoli coach elected to state hall of fame


Former Tivoli High School
head football coach Arthur


Woodard will be inducted
into the State of Florida
Coaches Hall of Fame, April
6, 2008, in ceremonies at
Gainesville, FL.
The recognition pays trib-
ute to the legendary football
coach who guided the De-
Funiak Springs school to a
12-year record of 110 wins,
six losses, and four ties, in-
cluding three straight unde-
feated series (62-64).
Arthur Woodard came
to DeFuniak Springs and
Tivoli in 1955, after a year
as the head football coach
at Carver High in Crest-
view and two years after a


one-year stint with the San
Francisco 49ers. Woodard
was a three-year letterman
as a tackle for the Florida
A&M Rattlers, earning his
bachelor's degree in 1952.
At Tivoli he was joined by
Tivoli great Willie "Boogie"
Hall who served as an as-
sistant coach during Woo-
dard's 12-year local career.
He remained at Tivoli until
1967 when the school was
merged with Walton. Woo-
dard's sparkling record with
the Tivoli Tigers then land-
ed him the coaching job at
Miami Central High where
he later became athletic


director and on to Miami
Edison as assistant princi-
pal. He closed out his career
in 1991 as the principal of
Miami's MacArthur North
High School.

Woodard's .916 winning
percentage at Tivoli is the
highest of any Florida coach
with more than ten seasons.
In addition, Woodard saw 23
of his Tivoli players move on
to football scholarships dur-
ing the 1955-67 time span.
Woodard joins Walton's
Grey Wilson and Freeport's
Aubrey Rentz as the only
Walton County players or


coaches inducted in the
state sports hall of fame.


Rentz will be inducted with
Woodard April 6.

Santa Rosa Beach man


indicted in wide-ranging


child exploitation ring


A federal grand jury in
Pensacola, FL. has returned
a 35-count indictment
against 12 individuals,
among them a Santa Rosa
Beach resident, who alleg-
edly engaged in a criminal
enterprise involving the
advertisement, transporta-
tion and shipment of child
pornography over a two-
year period, according to
Assistant Attorney General
Alice S. Fisher of the Crimi-
nal Division, U.S. Attorney
for the Northern District of
Florida, and FBI Executive
Assistant Director J. Ste-
phen Tidwell.


According to the indict-
ment, the 12 men partici-
pated since August 2006 in
a highly-sophisticated and
well-organized scheme to
proliferate child sex-abuse
images to the organization's
membership. Until the
group was dismantled by
law enforcement, members
of the group utilized Inter-
net newsgroups or large
file-sharing networks-where
text, software, pictures and
videos can be traded and
shared to traffic in illegal
images and videos depict-
ing prepubescent children,
including toddlers, engaged


in various sexual and sadis-
tic acts. The group utilized
sophisticated encryption
methods to avoid detection
and traded over 400,000 im-
ages and videos of child sex-
ual abuse before being dis-
mantled. The charges were
developed after law enforce-
ment infiltrated the group.
The indictment charges
the 12 defendants with nu-
merous federal crimes, in-
cluding engaging in a child
exploitation enterprise, con-
spiracy, advertisement of
child pornography, transpor-

Last Wednesday, the de-
fense team for suspended
South Walton High School
(SWHS) coach Mark Cozzie
presented its case as an ar-
ray of coaches, educators,
and the defendant himself
took the stand.
Cozzie was being tried
for lewd and lascivious be-
havior involving an under-
age student, specifically
rubbing the pain ointment
Biofreeze onto the student's
quadriceps muscle during
a sparsely-attended track
team practice.
Attorney Byron Cotton
questioned Kelly Buzzett,
a long-distance runner and
volunteer coach at Sea-
side Neighborhood School.
Buzzett, the mother of
two teenage boys, said she
had probably seen Cozzie
squeeze children's necks
and rub their shoulders but
had not witnessed anything
"odd."

New regional beach access

open to the public


By DOTTY NIST
The seventh regional
beach access maintained by
the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
recently went into operation
between Seaside and-Water-
Color.


Known as the Van Ness
Butler Jr. Regional Beach
Access, the facility features
a dune walkover leading to
the beach on the south side
of CR-30A and, on the north
side, a 100-space landscaped
parking lot with four ADA


spaces and restrooms.
Located slightly to the
west of the "Welcome to Sea-
side" sign, the access had its
official opening on March
11. The access is named for

Buzzett stated that as
a coach, she had often ap-
plied Biofreeze to athletes'
injuries and that tending to
such matters was a normal
part of the job.
Assistant. State Attor-
ney James Parker asked
Buzzett if applying the oint-
ment required a high level of
expertise. Buzzett said no,
and Parker remarked that
the application of Biofreeze
could probably be taught to
a third-grader.
Melissa Terry identified
herself as- the owner of a
running-shoe store and par-
ent of two teenage girls, both
of whom had been coached
"off and on" by Cozzie. Ter-
ry stated that during her
time as a volunteer coach
at SWHS, she had observed
Cozzie's interactions with
other students and her own
children and had heard no
complaints from any of them

rector Gary Wise.

Boyd urges Georgia to



work on water conservation


By ALICIA LEONARD
"We've been planning
the future of Florida's wa-
ter supply for 35 years and
rAtlanta just started a few
years ago?" stated Con-
gressman Allen Boyd. With
that sentiment, Boyd lead
a delegation of representa-
tives from all six counties
that touch the Apalachicola
river in taking part in con-
gressional hearings aimed
at placing pressure on Geor-
gia and the Army Corps. of
Engineers' (ACE) regarding
reduced water flow to Flori-
da.
The Florida delegation
testified in front of Congress
on March 11, 2008. Boyd and
the Apalachicola River Ri-
parian County Stakeholder
Coalition (ARRCSC) spoke
with reporters after the


hearings. "Everyone agrees
that we are disappointed in
our leaders for not coming to
grips with this issue. This is
not something that should
be settled in the courts. Ulti-
mately, the states will have
to come to terms on this is-
sue," said Boyd.
Boyd turned the confer-
ence over to Kevin Begos,
executive director of the
Franklin County Oyster and
Seafood Task Force. Begos
was one of the committee
members attending that
had been selected to testify
in the hearings. Begos said,
"I was happy to hear from
other speakers that believe
the whole basin has to be
part of the solution. This
is not an issue of mussels
versus people. The state of
Georgia has some conversa-


tion issues to deal with and
I have the feeling from to-
day's hearings, if that is not
done, others will take ac-
tion to solve that for them."
Begos said many members
of Congress were unhappy
that representatives from
the states had not shown up
to partake in the hearings.
Franklin County Com-
missioner Joseph (Smokey)
Parrish spoke next. The
commissioner's family was
noted by Begos as being
among generations of fami-
lies that have made a liv-
ing fishing the bay. Parrish
said he agreed with- Boyd
and Begos. Parrish said, "I
would like to reiterate what
the ACE people said that
in the first place- we would
have to start is an environ-
mental impact study, so we


can see how we are being
impacted by this issue. Con-
gress was surprised to hear
the economic impact of the
low water levels in commu-
nities surrounding the bay
and I am hopeful from the
response we received that
others are becoming con-
cerned at what we are fac-
ing."
The issue of drought-
stricken areas were also a
subject brought to Congress'
attention during the hear-
ings. Dave McLain, coor-
dinator for ARRCSC, said,
"The recurring drought is a
part of nature and it's a part
of Florida's plans, but we
have to make sure that At-
lanta puts it into their plans
as well. We tried to get the
word across to them today
through these hearings."

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

SWTDC to hold wayfinding


signage workshop


By JEFFREYPOWELL
The South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
has announced its intention
to hold a public workshop
concerning the installation
of wayfinding signs.
The "family of signs"
project, which is 80-percent
completed, was put on hold
after strenuous citizen ob-
jection during tle TDC reg-
ular meeting of Feb. 13.
"We are interested in
hearing the recommenda-
tions of the community and
anxious to see what can be
accomplished.- through this
workshop," said TDC Chair-
man John Gillis. "While the
signs may be effective, we
also do not want them to be
a point of contention that
divides our community and
believe we can find an ami-
cable resolution."
Among the concessions
the TDC has suggested is
the reduction' of the direc-
tional information signs to
a height equal to that of the


community welcome signs.
Also, landscaping all the
signs with local native veg-
etation has been suggested
to soften the "industrial" ap-
pearance. An additional rec-
ommendation concerns the
signs that reference "Sea-
grove Beach," and would
change the identification
on the signs to "Seagrove."
It has been brought to the
TDC's attention that there
is a planned unit develop-
ment between Alys Beach
and Rosemary Beach iden-
tified as "Seagrove Beach."
These concessions have also
been put on hold pending
workshop results.
"Not everyone in the com-
munity is opposed to the
signs," said TDC Director of
Public Relations and Visitor
Services Tracy Louthain.
"We are surprised by the
level of objection after an
extended public process."
The wayfinding sign proj-
ect has been in the works for
seven years and has cost ap-


proximately $260,000. Half
of the current board mem-
bers were on the board that
approved the project.
The TDC was asked to
partner with Claire Banner-
man, chairman of the Corri-
dor Advocacy Group (CAG)
in preparing the workshop.
CAG spearheaded the scenic
corridor designation process
and achieved officiall scenic
highway" status for CR-30A
through the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation in
February.
"We respect the passion
of this community;" said
Louthain. "That passion is
what preserves the natural
element of the area."
The workshop will be held
on Wednesday, March 26 at
the Coastal Branch Library
in Santa Rosa Beach from
5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
For more information
concerning, the wayfinding
signage program or work-
shop contact Sonny Mares
at (850) 267-1216.

What
gets your
engine
fired up
when
watching
the local
evening
news?
What gets


!Art(

tOf


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, but you were
too busy trying to see
around the smoke from 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
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
li Internet
T and blogs
that now
crowd the
Internet,
millions are
-t n L 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 candidate
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.

Cozzie responded yes
when Parker asked if he felt
rubbing the girl's thigh was
proper conduct. He respond-
ed to the other witnesses'
testimony by saying he did
not sit on a students' lap,
and that he had "brushed" -
not touched another girl's
breasts.
At 2:14 p.m., the defense
rested. Cotton renewed all
of his previous motions, in-
cluding one for acquittal.
Judge Kelvin Wells denied
the motions.
Parker called a rebuttal
witness, the mother of the
girl who had testified about
the cartwheel incident.
Parker said the witness
would rebut Gail Smith's
testimony. The girl's mother
said she had not received a
phone call from Smith and
that she only became aware
of the, incident after her
daughter told her about it.
She added she did not tell
Smith she felt Cozzie's ac-
tions were an accident.
Final arguments began
shortly after 3 p.m. "Chil-
dren are our greatest natu-
ral resource," Parker told
the jury. "We expect them
to be kept from harm, trust
them to teachers and coach-
es. This man broke that
trust. He crossed that line.
Buddy Cotton responded,
"If you've got the facts, you
argue the facts. If you've
got the law, you argue the
law. If you don't have facts'
and you don't have the law,
you parade for one solid day
people across the stand that
have absolutely zero to do
with this case."
Cotton said that riot one
law enforcement was called
by the state to testify, nor
was the SWHS nurse whom
he referred to several times
as "the spider." During the
trial, Cotton referred sev-
eral times to the nurse's ef-
forts to lure complainants
out of class for "Coca-Colas,
pizza, and snacks."
"We're here on three sec-
onds, or two and a half,"
said Cotton. "Uncomfort-
able doesn't have a dadgum
thing to do with this. There
has been zero evidence of
lewd and lascivious intent.
(The victim) said she was
uncomfortable, but never to
this day has she filed a com-
plaint."
Parker rebutted this, ask-
ing the six jurors, "Were his
(Cozzie's) intentions honor-
able? There's a phrase, 'cop-
ping a feel.' A middle-aged
man felt up a 14-year-old
girl."
The jury deliberated for
approximately 90 minutes
before returning a not guilty
verdict. There were no out-
bursts, despite the pres-
ence in the courtroom of the
girl's father and members of
Cozzie's family.
"There are a number of
other cases pending," Park-
er told the Herald-Breeze.
"We'll review those and de-
cide which direction to pro-
ceed next."
"We're very happy the
jury was able to see the evi-
dence for what it was," said
Buddy Cotton.

heavily on education," said
Beach Safety Director Gary
Wise. "The lifeguards play
an important role in the

they strive to make contact
with as many beach patrons
as possible and encourage
them to pay attention to the

Lifeguards are required
to pass 48 hours of classroom
