City recognizes

Dr. Arthur E.

Woodard


By ALICIA LEONARD
Friends, associates and
family members joined the
DeFuniak Springs City
Council in honoring Dr.
Arthur E. Woodard for his
lifetime achievements as an
educator, mentor and role
model with a proclamation
designating a Dr. Arthur E.
Woodard Day. Council
member James Huffman
thanked the Council for
allowing him to have, the
honor of bestowing the proc-
lamation for his mentor.
Huffman said, "Dr. Woodard
was a man among men. He
is almost a mythical figure.
Every person who came in
contact with him has a dif-
ferent story that offers tes-
tament to his life. He left an
indelible mark on this city.
He left friends and family
here. He was a remarkable
man. I could tell you stories
as most here tonight about
how he positively influenced
my life."


Huffman presented the
proclamation to Woodard's
brother-in-law, Charles E.
Williams. Woodard was un-
able to travel from his home
in Miami to attend the cer-
emony, though numerous
family members and friends
gathered to celebrate the
proclamation. The procla-
mation, when presented,
drew a standing ovation
from the crowd.
In other Council news,
David King, representing
the Kiwanis Club, received
unanimous approval from
the Council to use the Lake-
yard for "Take a Kid Fishing
Day," to be held on May 3,
2008. Chris Mitchell, repre-
senting Florida Chautauqua
Center, Inc., received unani-
mous approval for use of the
Lakeyard as the grounds for
next year's Civil War re-en-
actment camps.

Commissioners look at paving more roads


By DOTTY NIST
About half of the 1,114
miles of total county road
mileage in Walton County is
unpaved, according to Wal-
ton County Public W6rks
Director Lyle Siegler. The
county has budgeted for
12.68 miles of county road
to be paved by county crews
in the current fiscal year.
County commissioners
would like to increase that
amount, but they are fac-
ing limited manpower and
a tight budget, impacted by
state budget cuts, this year.
Still, they are investigating
ways to do more road pav-
ing.
"Two miles of road per
district is not enough," said
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows at a com-
mission road workshop ear-
lier this month.
The cost for paving one
mile of road with in-house
county labor is approxi-
mately $233,600, according
to Walton County Public


Works Department figures,
while the cost for paving
work contracted out to pri-
vate companies is over twice
that much.
The county's cost to
maintain unpaved roads is
not insignificant. It comes to
$10,396 per mile per year,
according to county public
works calculations. Mead-
ows had asked for informa-
tion to be provided on the
cost of adding an additional
county paving crew. Cur-
rently the county has just
one. Meadows highlighted
the advantage of going
ahead with paving rather
than waiting a year or more,
when inflation will likely re-
sult in a higher cost for the
work.
The county's cost to main-
tain unpaved roads comes to
$10,396 per mile per year,
according to county public
works calculations.

Tax collector's office reminds taxpayers property tax deadline


The Walton County Tax
Collector's Office reminds
property owners that March
31 is the last day to pay prop-
erty taxes before incurring a
three-percent penalty.
"We encourage all Walton
County property owners to
pay their property taxes by


March 31 to avoid that ad-
ditional three percent pen-
alty," said Walton County
Tdx Collector Rhonda Skip-
per. "It is important for tax-
payers to note that we must
have the payment in our of-
fice by the 31st, payments
postmarked by the 31st but


not received in the office on
that day still incur the pen-
alty."
On April 1, all unpaid ac-
counts are assessed a three-
percent penalty, plus adver-
tising fees. These properties
are then advertised in the
paper as required by law


and if still unpaid by May
29 are included in an online
Tax Certificate Sale on May
30.
During the Tax Certifi-
cate Sale, investors bid to
purchase the tax certificates
issued on certain delinquent
properties. The winning bid-


der on each property imme-
diately pays the owed taxes
and gets his or her money
back, with interest, once the
property owner pays his or
her taxes.
Tax payments can be
made online at www.wal-
tontaxcollector.com or at the


DeFuniak Springs or Santa
Rosa Beach offices of the
Walton County Tax Collec-
tor. Office hours at both lo-
cations are Monday through
Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 pm.

tion, call (850)892-8121.


Alaqua Animal Refuge now in operation


From staff reports
Alaqua Animal Refuge,
a non-profit animal welfare
rescue providing a safe,
tranquil refuge for Wal-
ton County's lost and stray
animals, announced .it has
begun officially intercept-
ing some of the county's lost
and stray animals picked up
by Animal Control. Previ-
ously, Walton County solely


contracted with a facility in
Chipley, Florida, where the
animals were held for seven
days and most were then
euthanized.
This month, the refuge
began intercepting animals
picked up by Walton Coun-
ty's Animal Control in order
to provide a safe, hygienic,
cost-effective and efficient
facility for lost, stray and
abandoned animals. This


location allows hundreds of
stray or lost animals to re-
main within Walton County
while waiting for adoption
or their owners to locate and
retrieve their pets.
"Walton County has been
without an animal shelter
for many years," said Laurie
Hood, founder and director
of the Alaqua Animal Ref-
uge. "Thousands of animals
have been euthanized with-


out ever having 'an oppor-
tunity of finding a home or
getting back to their homes.
We feel that by the refuge
and the county working to-
gether, these animals now
have a chance."
Alaqua Animal Refuge
is currently run by Hood,
the board of directors and
a small staff of employees
and volunteers. The current
facility, .donated by Hood,


provides a safe and proper
environment until a perma-
nent refuge and facility can
be opened up to house more
animals. Plans for a perma-
nent facility are underway.
Donations are greatly ap-
preciated. Items accepted
range from blankets, dog
beds, cat beds, toys, food,
cleaning agents, and medi-
cal supplies. There are also
sponsorships available for
businesses and individuals
who wish to support the Ref-


uge monetarily.
The refuge provides
medical attention, behavior
evaluation, and ensures all
animals are up to date on
the necessary vaccinations.
Animals for adoption are
spayed or neutered when
they reach the correct age.

Go to www.aarflorida.
com or call 880-6399 to find
out more about becoming a
volunteer or donating to the
refuge.

Sheriff offers


"Computer-


COP" software


Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Johnson is offering
to parents, free of charge, a
CD that can be inserted into
the family computer that
will help parents to know
what their child is doing on
the computer. Johnson ex-
pressed his hope that the
program, called Computer-
COP, will be a useful tool for
parents.
ComputerCOP It is a CD-
rom based software tool that
will help a parent be able to
search for and review im-
ages, Web pages and text
documents found on the
family computer. A key-
stroke capture utility is an
additional feature available
on the version of Computer-
COP that will be distributed
by Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO). Once the CD
is removed, the program is
removed.
The software will let par-
ents know if their child has
gone to an inappropriate
Web site or has posted pri-
vate information on a Web
site. It features a library
of words that will raise red
flags for parents and high-
light them on the screen.
The program also looks for
anything drug-related, or
containing sex or violence,
and lists slang terms and
their definitions.
ComputerCOP can -re-
trieve instant messages and
e-mails. It cannot block ac-
cess to Web sites or filter
their content, but allows
parents to see where their
children have been online to
better monitor their activi-
ties.
This version of Com-
puterCOP includes tips for
parents on setting up In-
ternet usage guidelines for
their children and technical
information. There are also
links to the Florida State
Registry of Sex Offenders,


the Center for Missing and
Exploited Children and the
FBI.
To get a free copy of the
ComputerCOP CD, come
by the WCSO located on
Triple G Road in DeFuniak
Springs, or go to the South
Walton Sub-Station, Free-
port Sub-Station or the Pax-
ton Sub-Station.

CORRECTION

Last week's Herald contained an article on a double stab-
bing that took place on 23rd Street in DeFuniak Springs.
Two men, James Charles Walker and James Alex Walker,
were attacked and stabbed, allegedly by Chad Douglass
Rushing. The Herald received what was thought to be reli-
able information that James Charles had died of his inju-
ries, and included this in the final article. The information
was incorrect, and James Charles Walker in fact survived
the attack. Rushing was booked on two counts of attempted
felony murder. Those charges still stand at this time. The
Herald regrets the error.

Getting back on track


BACK-FLOW or cross connection device.


Back-flow preventer


issues are back


By ALICIA LEONARD
Many local citizens have
been receiving letters lately
concerning the city's at-
tempt to test and regulate
back-flow devices or cross
connection devices annually.
These letters have citizens
questioning exactly why
and how to test these devic-
es or whether they need one
at all. The back-flow devices
are designed to block off any
water that might get pulled
back into the system if the
water production facility
loses power or pressure.
JayneSwiftofCH2MHILL
(OMI) and Bill Holloway,
Public Works director for
DeFuniak Springs, brought
to light the need for these
devices and the plans they
are working on to keep them
in proper working order.
According to Swift, the
city is working on a three-
phase plan to follow city
ordinances as well as re-
quirements of the state De-
partment of Environmental

Protection (DEP). "The city
has had this ordinance in
place for a while now. It's
setup to provide some abil-
ity to regulate and protect
against what might get into
our supply by accident," said
Swift.
Swift said the first step
was getting the letters out
to those who are already on
record as having the devices.
The letters have been going
out according to the city's
website since 2006. The next
step will be city employees
locating devices that are
not on their list and notify-
ing the owners of the need
for yearly testing. The third
phase will involve determin-
ing a risk pool for those who
do not have the devices, but
need. to have them installed.
Swift noted that the risk pool
could include those who use
lawn fertilizers that hook
up to garden hoses, pool and
Jacuzzi owners, as well as
those who may have a well
or agricultural water supply
but use city water hook-ups
for everyday use.
Swift said, "If you are
out fertilizing your lawn
with a sprayer attachment
and we lose pressure, with-
out a back-flow regulator in
proper working condition,
there is a chance that those


chemicals could get sucked
back up into our main sup-
ply. That's why it's very im-
portant to get these devices
tested. We've been working
on this for two years, not
only because of the city or-
dinance, but also due to it
being in DEP regulations."
Holloway echoes Swifts
sentiments and added, "It
the best thing we can do to
keep the public's drinking
water supply safe. If any-
one has any question, they
should contact Jane or me
and we will try to help them
understand the issue and
answer any questions we
can."
The letters the city sent
out list five contractors who
are qualified to do the test-
ing and provide residents
with their certificate to mail
in, to prove compliance with
the regulations. Swift says
the average cost is around
$30 to have the annual test-
ing preformed. Residents
can receive up to four notic-
es to have testing completed
and then may face the possi-
bility of having their meter
locked until testing is com-
pleted according to the city's
website.

"How much is one life
worth? Is it worth $358,000?
Or how about all the lives
this might save? Are they
worth $358,000? I think if
we can save one person, one
deputy, one daughter, one
son, then it is money well
spent,'" said Walton Coun-
ty Sheriff (WCSO) Ralph
Johnson when discussing
the much-maligned and
controversial driving/train-
ing facility his office has
proposed.
The Herald sat down last
week to discuss this facility
with Johnson, Capt. Eddie
Farris and. Sgt. Andy Casa-
vant, training officer for the
WCSO.
Casavant has been train-
ing WCSO officers for a little
over a year and has over 30
years' experience training
officers in safety, driving,
critical-thinking skills and
legal matters concerning law
enforcement officers across
the country. Casavant pro-
vided some hard statistics
that might surprise people.
Casavant said, "2007 saw
the highest officer deaths in.
history. More officers were
killed in traffic-related inci-
dents than officers killed by
gunfire, a trend that's been
ongoing for over 10 years
now." Florida is second in
the nation for officers killed
in driving-related incidents.
Contrary to popular belief,
pursuits are not the big
killer as they only account
for five percent of crashes.
Casavant said this was most
disturbing because "most of
these officers died in single
car crashes with the officer
running off the road and
striking objects." Casavant
added, "Car crashes cause
more injuries, deaths and
civil litigation than any
other area in law enforce-
ment."
Having seven percent
of the crashes occurring in
rural areas and 45 percent
of those killed belonging
to sheriffs' offices places a


"The is no comparison. The Okaloosa fa-
cility has a driving pad and a smaller skid
pad. They can do things like learn how to
brake or drive around cones, but we are
talking about a track of 8/10ths of a mile
with the ability for drivers to take positive
and negative curves. That's what is going
to save lives."- Sheriff Ralph Johnson


greater emphasis on having
a facility to teach young dep-
uties how to drive, accord-
ing to Johnson. "They don't
know what to do in some
situations," said Johnson.


"They only get a minimal
amount of training at the
the academy and then they

A walk in



the park

By RON KELLEY


With spring here at last, it's a wonderful time to spend
time outdoors. Because we live in Walton County, we have
a plethora of parks.
The Walton County Commission should be commended
for remembering that having nice parks for relaxation and
recreation adds to our quality of life. While having to at-
tend to all the nuts and bolts and myriad details of gov-
ernment, the commissioners did not overlook the need for
parks throughout the county.
Lakewood, near Paxton, is the highest point in Florida.
It rises a dizzying 347 feet above sea level practically nose-
bleed country. (Okay, so perhaps I exaggerate slightly.) It's
still a nice spot for a picnic and features a walking trail. In
nearby Paxton, the county just finished building a football/
soccer park on U.S. 331 for the public's use. Commissioner
Ken Pridgen is also planning on building a small "pocket
park" in Glendale and has just completed a new park in
Gaskin, off Hwy. 83N. The new park has a nature trail
with a boardwalk, rest areas and a new irrigation system.
Thanks to Commissioner Larry Jones, there's a new park
in Mossy Head with a walking trail for adults and splash
pad for the kids. There's another new playground in New
Harmony, too. Douglass Crossroads Park has also received
a makeover on its two baseball diamonds.
In DeFuniak Springs, former Commissioner Randall
Infinger was the driving force behind the Wee-Care Park,
which features playground equipment for the tiny tots, pic-
nic areas, as well as softball/baseball fields for the bigger
kids. They've just finished building two new football/soccer
fields on six acres, too.
For the first time in history thanks to the commission-
ers DeFuniak Springs has a real teen center. Though
the building on North 9th Street is owned by city govern-
ment, it is the county that has transformed the old Na-
tional Guard Armory into a showplace for city teenagers.
The commissioners have so far spent $89,800 to put in a
new gymnasium floor, six new basketball goals and back-
guards, bleachers, volleyball courts, a new central heating'
and air conditioning system, a new. fire sprinkler/alarm
system and refurbished meeting rooms for teens under the
direction of the Boys & Girls Club, who are providing su-
pervised after-school programs. Instead of just blowing hot
air about providing a safe-haven environment for latch-key
kids throughout the city, keeping them off the streets and
out of the parking lots, the commissioners literally put their
money where their mouth is and made it happen.
Next door, the commissioners just finished refurbishing
Harbeson Field with new sod, a new irrigation system and
a new scoreboard. They also refurbished the Gene Hurley
Park, also owned by the city. They rebuilt the ball fields
and updated the equipment to the tune of about $60,000.
That benefits youth and adult leagues.
The county has now provided for toddlers and teens and,
at the urging of citizen J.B. Hillard, they have donated land
and their own building for the establishment of the new se-
nior center on College Avenue. Some government offices in
that county complex have already been vacated, enough so
that the senior center can start hosting activities. As soon
as the rest of the courthouse is finished, the whole build-
ing will be handed over to the senior center. As if that isn't
generous enough, thd commissioners have further pledged
$300,000 to the center's operation for two years.
I have to hand it to the commissioners, their steadfast*
dedication to every age group in DeFuniak Springs is re-
markable and something for which they should be com-
mended. It's just unheard of in this community.
Of course, it doesn't stop there. Thanks to Commissioner
Sara Comander, Choctaw Park on the Bay along SR-20 also
got new landscaping, sod and an irrigation system. A new
boat launch is planned there, too. Alaqua Park on the south
shore of the Choctawhatchee Bay has also received new
fencing, lighting and a dock.
Commissioner Scott Brannon is making sure that big
changes are underway at Morrison Springs, too. Construc-
tion has begun that will result in a boardwalk, pavilion,
boat ramp and parking area.
The wayside park at the northern end of the Clyde B.
Wells Bridge on U.S. 331S received new docks and a pier
to go with the picnic areas. Thanks to Commissioner Cindy
Meadows, Helen McCall park just keeps getting bigger and
better. The county is currently clearing the eastern side of
the park for a new soccer field.
In short, thanks to some long-term thinking on the part
of the Walton County Commission, rest, relaxation and
recreation for our children and our families is like...well, a
walk in the park. Get out there and enjoy yourself.

*LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor,
The United States was created by the 13 individual
states that existed in 1789. They established a federal gov-
ernment with limited powers and very few duties. Each
state was to remain independent in most areas.
The people could control federal spending because they
elected the members of the U.S. House of Representatives
where all money bills must originate. The state legislatures
could control federal interference because they elected the
members of the U.S. Senate.
In 1913, 36 states passed the 17th' Amendment to allow
voters to directly elect their U.S. Senators. Since then, the
federal government has usurped many powers of the states.
We are rapidly becoming a police state. The president is
now allowing warrantless seizes and searches, torture, and
many other unconstitutional activities. He also is suspend-
ing habeas corpus, our right to face criminal accusations in
a court of law.
The feds also plan to merge the United States with
Mexico and Canada into a sovereignty-destroying regional
government with open borders called the North American
Union (NAU) by 2010. Go to www.thenewamerican.com
for NAU details. Americans need to demand that the feds
obey our Constitution now, or we soon will be governed by
officials we did not elect, just like the European Union is
today.

Editor,

A good "letter to the editor" resolves questions. In twen-
ty years of life on the shores of Miramar Beach, I have lots
of questions, but only partial answers. The newspapers I
read seem unconcerned. Here goes:
When a tugboat smashes a structure in Choctawhatchee
Bay and causes a quarter million of damage, the govern-
ment (our taxes) absorbs the loss because it is due to un-
ruly currents. If I drive into a post office building while
partially blinded by rain, or some other natural cause, will
I be expected to pay the loss?
When cracks are found in the Destin bridge, truckers are
first warned of loads that are over legal limits. Soon after, a
more politically-correct phraseology is used. Suddenly, the
mass of semi-trailer traffic on U.S. 98 as if by magic, al-
most disappears. Can it be that too-frequent overloads con-
tribute to tax-paid repairs for bridge and road damage?
The Florida Supreme Court will eventually get around
to deciding whether or not water frontage deeds that read
"to the waters' edge" are to be revoked by a law that takes
away the ownership of some beach frontage for use of the
state of Florida. Where does one learn about remuneration
for property taken (presumably) under the rules of eminent
domain?
The expense and aesthetics of signs on CR-30A contin-
ues to cause a flap. But, where are the signs regarding hur-
ricane escape routes? Doesn't a life-or-death issue warrant
a lot of that, ad space?
When will Scenic Gulf Drive have a safe, well-paved
foot path from the western county line to its intersection
with U.S. 98? SGD was here decades before the libation
of "Scenic Corridor" was poured upon CR-30A, and Scenic
Gulf Drive has far more Gulf scenes per running foot than
CR-30A can concoct. What priorities apply in meting out
county funds to these two high-value Walton County thor-
oughfares?
Our commissioners have graciously provided special ar-
rangements for we residents of Walton County to exercise
our dogs on the beach with two permits, a leash, and during
special hours. Visitors observe the legally-present animals,
and then assume full dog/beach privileges. In two decades
of life of the beach, I have never seen a dog walker do more
than kick sand over the excrement of their unlawfully pres-
ent pets. Where are the strategically placed beach signs
advising tourists of our laws and penalties?
Why are autos allowed to park on the shoulders of Scenic
Gulf Drive, allowing only inches for passing traffic? There
are available (though somewhat inconvenient) stretches of
open land in south Walton County. Couldn't these areas be
leased, used for parking, and paid for by parking meters?
It is my hope that another Walton County resident, with
more skill and knowledge than I possess, will help to pro-
vide some answers in these columns.

Editor:
I am well aware that this is an election year, and that
our local sheriffs department is getting flack from many
directions. Let me assure your readers that this letter is
not in any way politically motivated.
I have written many letters to the editor about law en-
forcement, or lack of such, in our county and city. I have
been involved with law enforcement, corrections, security,
and private investigations most of my adult life. As I have
stated in past letters, I have the highest respect for those
officers out there doing their sworn duty to protect citizens
of this county. It is those that think they have the right to
do whatever they please, just because they carry a badge,
that I feel disgust for.
Today, in this county, a man entered a gated community
under false pretenses to respossess a vehicle. The law al-
lows a person with an "E" license to do just that, "if' the
owner does not object. If the owner comes out and says "put
that car down" the repo agent must comply. He can only
take the vehicle off private property if he can do so without
a breach of the peace. When the owner objects, it becomes
a breach of the peace.
This was the case of today's incident. The owner called
security, who did what they were employed to do, asked the
person to leave the property and called the sheriffs depart-
ment when he refused. The department at first declined to
get involved until the dispatcher realized that an argument
was going on in the background. A deputy was dispatched
to the location.
He told security that the man had every right to take the
vehicle in question, and allowed the man to depart with the
automobile. Sounds like a normal misunderstanding on the
part of the security officers, right? Wrong"
Had the deputy taken the time to look up the statues
on repossession, he would have agreed with the security
officers that the person could not take the vehicle under
the conditions involved. But this small mistake could be
acceptable. The deputy did not have a copy of Chapter 493
with him. Lame -excuse, but par for Walton County depu-
ties. Even they show that a licensed is required to repo a
vehicle in
Florida. The man in question was from Alabama, and is not
license in Florida. The deputy, telling the security officer
that they did not know what they were doing, stood by and
allowed a trespasser to leave with a automobile that did
not belong to him while the owner stood by and watched a
person commit grand theft auto with the deputy's consent.
Somebody need to teach somebody around here the laws
of the state of Florida. Maybe a new sheriff?

Editor:
Many years ago we moved from DeFuniak where my
father had been in charge of the Coca-Cola warehouse on
Main Street to Crestview. I wept bitter tears at having to
leave my friends. Then four years later I wept bitter tears
at having to leave my friends to move back to Defuniak
when the Coca Cola plant (on Hwy. 83) was built. At that
period of time the towns were about the same size and the
townspeople were friendly with bustling downtown stores
and a sense of community pride.
Then at some point after 1941, Crestview decided to
grow. And grow it did with little or no regard as to what
went where. DeFuniak had far more thoughtful people on
their city council who wanted growth of course but wanted
it controlled to maintain its sense of community, adhesive-
ness and attractiveness. Thank you, Hygia Coca-Cola com-
pany for building your plant here. It brought us back here
to my hometown.
And thank you, city council, for your care in allowing
business to locate here. We still look good in our business
section even though most of the the stores are now on 331
and 90. You're done a great job for many years, Don, Buddy,
your well thought out remarks are always appreciated.
James Coffield, thank you especially for being on the
committee to decide what to do with the old hospital, site
on College Avenue. We now have a senior citizen site. The
three of you have always been willing to go the extra mile
for our community.

Editor,
As chairperson of MDA's Shamrocks Against Dystrophy,,
I want to take a moment to thank businesses and patrons
in the Defuniak Springs area for their generous participa-
tion in our 2008 campaign. I'm delighted to say that this
year's fundraising efforts were a great success.
Those little green and gold Shamrocks mobiles sold by
local businesses help support MDA's vital programs of re-
search, health care services and public education right here
in Defuniak Springs and across the country.
On behalf of all the individuals and families coping with
muscle-wasting diseases, I send a big warm "thank-you" to
Defuniak Springs residents you've certainly put a smile
in these Irish eyes!

Stroke and osteoporosis screening coming to Freeport April 23


Residents living in and
around the Freeport, FL.
community can be screened
to reduce their risk of hav-
ing a stroke. The complete
screening package now in-
cludes a new heart rhythm
screening, checking for ir-
regular heartbeat, which
is a major risk factor for
stroke.


Life Line Screening
will be at the First Baptist
Church on April 23. The
site is located at 430 Kylea
Laird Dr. in Freeport. Ap-
pointments will begin at 9
a.m.
A stroke, also known as
a "brain attack," is ranked
as the third leading killer
in the world, and the lead-


ing cause of nursing home
admissions. Stroke often oc-
curs without warning, but
painless screenings can help
identify risk for stroke, vas-
cular diseases or osteoporo-
sis early enough for physi-
cians to begin preventative
procedures.
Screenings are non-in-
vasive and easy to obtain.


They help identify potential
health problems such as
blocked arteries and irregu-
lar heart rhythm, abdomi-
nal aortic aneurysms, and
hardening or the arteries in
the legs, which is a strong
predictor of heart disease. A
bone density screening to as-
sess osteoporosis risk is also
offered and is appropriate


for both men and women.
Register for a Wellness
Package with Heart Rhythm
for $149. All five screenings
take 60-90 minutes to com-
plete. f
Life Line Screening was
established in 1993, and has
since become the nation's
leading provider of vascu-
lar screenings. Ultrasound


teams are on staff to travel to
local communities, bringing
the screenings to local resi-
dents. For more information
regarding the screenings
or to schedule an appoint-
ment, call (877)237-1287 or
visit us on the web at www.
lifelinescreening.com. Pre-
registration is required.


American Red Cross needs all eligible blood donors


The American Red Cross
is currently in need of vol-
unteer blood donors with
all blood types, particularly
those with Type 0 Positive
or Type 0 Negative, due to
the continuing critical need.
The American Red Cross is
urging all eligible donors
to give at blood drives and
donor centers over the next
several weeks as a way of
keeping the blood supply at
a safe and stable level.


The most critical current
need is for donors with Type
O blood, because Type 0
blood makes up more than
half of the total blood re-
quested by the more than
100 hospitals served in the
Alabama and central Gulf
coast region.
Because 0 Negative is
considered "universal do-
nor" blood, it can be used to
treat trauma patients in an
emergency when time is of


the essence and the patient's
blood type is unknown. This
makes it an extremely im-
portant part of a safe and
stable blood supply, and
there is always a tremen-
dous demand for this type of
blood due to its versatility.
0 Positive blood is the'
most common type, and
can be transfused into pa-
tients with positive blood
types. B Negative is a rare
blood type, and often, when


an emergency need is real-
ized, there is no time for B
Negative donors to respond.
These factors make it es-
pecially important that the
American Red Cross has a
stable supply of both 0 Neg-
ative and B Negative blood
types at all times..
Donors are needed each
to make sure everyone who
needs blood receives blood.
Under normal circumstanc-
es, the ALGC must collect


roughly 800 units per day to
make sure hospital requests
are filled. One of the best
ways to avoid a dangerous
emergency shortage is to
give regularly at American
Red Cross blood drives and
donor centers.
Therefore, the American
Red Cross will be hosting
many public drives over the
coming weeks in an effort to
bolster the blood supply for
the coming months:


American Rea Cross
blood drives will be at Fort
Walton Beach, April 15, at
Boeing 626 Anchors Street
from 10 a.m. 3 p.m.; on
April 21 on Boeing 626 An-
chors Street from
10 a.m. 3 p.m.
DeFuniak Springs on
March 28, at the Chau-
tauqua Rehab. & Nursing
Home, 785 South 2nd Street
from 11 a.m. 4 p.m.

Covenant Hospice offers free grief seminar April 8


Covenant Hospice will
present a free grief seminar
on Tuesday, April 8, from 4
p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at their
Crestview office, located at
370 West Redstone Drive.
A trained Covenant Hospice
bereavement specialist and
chaplain will facilitate this


program, which is open to
the public.
"This grief seminar is
open to anyone who has ex-
perienced the loss of a loved
one, not just the families,
whom we have served," says
Charlotte Eschmann, a be-
reavement specialist. "The


loss of a loved one can create
an emotional roller coaster
ride for the surviving family
and friends. This seminar
will not only provide a safe
and supportive environment
for those who are grieving,
but also will provide educa-
tion on the emotional, psy-


chological and spiritual im-
pacts of grief."
Because there is no
charge for this seminar, at-
tendees are invited to bring
along a friend. After the
seminar, there will be a
free six-week grief support
group that will begin meet-
ing Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to
6 p.m. starting April 15. To


find out more information
about the free grief seminar
or the grief support group,

Samson mayor charged in


DeFuniak Springs attack


The mayor of Samson,
AL. has been arrested and
charged in connection with
an assault and stabbing
that took place on Friday,
March 21. According to a
release from the De Funiak
Springs Police Department
(DFSPD), Clay McHugh
King, 43, resident and may-
or of Samson, AL. attacked
and stabbed Stephen Hunt-
er Oates, 44, of Chancellor,
AL., at the -Super 8 Motel,
402 Hugh Adams Rd., in De
Funiak Springs.
The release states that
the incident took place ear-
ly on Friday morning. The


Emergency Operations Cen-
ter (EOC) received a call
from the motel at around
1:45 a.m. It was reported
that Oates and King's wife
were apparently "watching
Ms. King's two sons, putting
air in the tires of Ms. King's
vehicle in the parking lot in
front of room 124....."
Clay King reportedly "ap-
peared out of nowhere," and
attacked Oates, striking him,
in the the face. Oates ran
back into the motel room to
escape. King followed him,
and in the ensuing strug-
gle Oates received a knife
wound in the abdomen. He


was transported to Health-
mark Regional Medical
Center and listed as critical.
King fled the scene, and law
enforcement officers initi-
ated efforts to locate him.

DFSPD Capt. Mark
Weeks confirmed that King
turned himself in to the De
Funiak Springs Police on
Friday afternoon. He was
booked on a charge of aggra-
vated battery with a deadly
weapon, and has been re-
leased on bond. Oates' con-
dition reportedly has sta-
bilized. The case remains
under investigation.

Suspect


arrested for


burglary


On March 24, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) responded to a call
in the area of Karli Court
and John White Road in
the DeFuniak Springs area
in regards to a person at-
tempting to break into a
trailer. The call came in
around 4:33 p.m., and the
deputies were on scene by
4:45 p.m. The suspect had
fled the scene and was spot-
ted going into a residence on
John White Road. Deputies
made contact with a person
at the residence, and were
able to find the suspect in a
closet hidden under a'pile of


clothes.
After going back to the
trailer, the deputies discov-
ered a pair of bolt cutters
and a duffle bag with other
tools in it. The padlock on
the door of the trailer had
been cut. The suspect was
identified as Joseph Cas-
ton Oakes,19, of DeFuniak
Springs. Oakes has been
charged with one count of
burglary, one count of pos-
session of burglary tools and
resisting an officer without
violence. Oakes is currently
being held in the Walton
County Jail on a $10,000
bond.

take a curve or a get on a
bad part of uneven highway
and they lose control." Of of-
ficers killed, 58 percent had
less than five years of ser-
vice, while 32 percent had
less than 23 months experi-
ence. With the WCSO hav-
ing around 50 percent of
their workforce under the
age of 30, according to Far-
ris, the proposed training
facilities are much needed.
Casavant said speed,
youth and lack of train-
ing are the main culprits
in this high number of law
enforcement officer deaths.
Casavant said, "The lack of
training in learning how to
handle driving at a higher
speed is sorely lacking in
our jobs due to not having
available training facilities.
Currently at the academy
level, there is eight hours of
classroom training followed
by two practice runs which
take a bout 15 minutes
each. Then each student
has to make four success-
ful runs, which takes about
20-30 minutes. Their actual
hands-on time behind the
wheel may be three hours
total."
Despite reports compar-
ing the Okaloosa Walton
College (OWC) justice facil-
ity track and the proposed
WCSO track, there are
major differences in design
between the two facilities.

Johnson said, "The is no
comparison. The Okalsoosa
facility has a driving pad and
a smaller skid pad. They can
do things like learn how to
break or drive around cones,
but we are talking about a
track of 8/10ths of a mile
with the ability for drivers
to take positive and nega-
tive curves. That's what is
going to save lives."
When the Herald con-
tacted the Justice Facil-
ity at OWC, they confirmed
that the pad at their facil-
ity is not as complex as the
one the WCSO is proposing
and their facility does not
include an actual track with
curves. Brian Shonk, direc-
tor of public safety/criminal
justice agreed that the fa-
cilities are different. "Our
main driving pad is 300x600
and our skid pad is much
smaller. We don't have an
actual track like the facility
in Walton that officers can
drive on and get real speed
up to handle curves and
such."
Johnson said he wants
the track to be available
to all groups who need the
training including high
school drivers education
and emergency response
personnel, as well as be
open to other county law en-
forcement agencies. "We'll

In its last piece of busi-
ness, the Council approved
unanimously to pay Peters

for everyone who needs it.
This is about keeping people
alive and teaching them
how to react in certain situ-
ations on the road. It's also
about protecting the county
and the citizens' from liabil-
ity where our deputies are
concerned. The facility is for
the good of everyone and it's
going to protect our deputies
and our citizens alike."
Casavants cites the Char-
lotte-Mecklenburg Police
Department as an example.
"Three years ago they built a
state-of-the-art facility like
the one proposed here. Due
to' that facility, they have
saved over a million' dol-
lars, countless inju ries and'
possible death since they
implemented their training
and built their facility."
After Johnson and the
plans for the training facili-
ty were criticized and it was

to be put through a capital
bidding process the plans
for the facility were turned
over to Walton County Ad-
ministrator Ronriie Bell.
When asked where the
plans stand now, Bell re-
sponded, "The Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) approved a
master-plan study last year
over the property we have
that incorporates our emer-
gency services, possible ani-
mal shelter, a training facil-
ity for first responders and
the jail. Our committee, the
Triple G Master Plan Com-
mittee, came back with a
great master plan and the
sheriffs plan for his facil-
ity is great as well, but we
are looking into combing
the training facilities so we
aren't duplicating services.
When we decide how to
combine the facilities, then
we will have the question
of funding to deal with as
well.
"Since the passing of
Amendment One, we are
having to look at how to
fund these ideas. My job is
to stretch the taxpayers'
dollars as far as they will
go. After we figure out how
to fund it, then it will move
on to the BCC for consider-
ation."


PAVING

FROM FRONT
the maintenance of these
dirt roads," District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander
observed.
The requested informa-
tion and more was provided
at the March 11 workshop.
Siegler noted that there is
a "rollover" this year of 11
miles of paving that was not
completed last year.
District 1 has the most
unpaved roads, 185 miles
worth, and 132 miles of
paved roads. District 5 has
the least unpaved miles,
29, and 98 miles of paved
roads.
Siegler explained that
much preparation is nec-
essary before asphalt is
placed on roads. First there
is right-of-way acquisition,
surveying, design and per-.
mitting. Then, before the
asphalt crew can go to work,
roads are prepared by the
clearing, drainage, bridge,
and stabilization crews.
Discussed at the work-
shop was the fact that,
when crews are in a particu-
lar area where it is appar-
ent that road or other pav-
ing work is needed, often
public works will add those
projects to their work load,
in order to reduce mobiliza-
tion costs to do those proj-
ects later. Siegler provided
a list of these "not originally
scheduled or budgeted" proj-
ects from the previous fiscal
year.
Among those projects
were paving the tennis
courts at Walton High
School, clearing and paving
basketball courts at the Eu-
cheeana Valley Community
Center, a retention pond
and parking lot paving at
Gaskin Park, installation of
a bridge on the CR-30A bike
path, other park work, road
reconstruction, stabiliza-

roads comes to $10,396 per mile per year,
according to county public works calcula-
tions.


tion, patching, and overlay
work.
In fact, it was revealed
that over the past 68 work
days, only 31 days had been
devoted to scheduled public
works projects. Additional
road projects had taken up
25 of the 68 days, with five
days being devoted to spe-
cial projects in connection
with schools, parks, etc., and
seven days devoted to equip-
ment maintenance and lost
to rain.
It would cost $4.9 mil-
lion to add another county
paving crew, including
costs. for manpower, sup-
port, and new equipment,
Ryan Douglass, county pub-
lic works engineer, told the
commissioners. Douglass
added that public works has
identified 28.66 miles of un-
paved roads for an acceler-
ated paving program if the
county could provide fund-
ing for the second crew.
Citizens attending the
workshop were critical of
the amount of time being
spent on unscheduled and
special projects as opposed
to time spent on scheduled
paving projects. Comander
countered that doing spe-
cial projects in house saves
money as compared with
contracting them out..
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell noted that in
the case of the tennis court
project for Walton High
School, the work took half a
day, and the school district
paid$13,000 for the asphalt.
He added that public use of
school facilities is allowed in
return for the county doing
such projects.
Meadows urged that, if


the county is doing paving
for the school district, "I
want their recreational facil-
ities opened up to our kids...
this is part of the deal." She
highlighted the problem
of sports teams having to
"stand in line" for the use of
county recreational facilities
such as Helen McCall Park.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones suggested that
public works look at any ad-
ditional or special projects
that may be required in
advance, when scheduling
paving work, and plan ac-
cordingly.
Bell had researched
sources of funding for ad-
ditional road paving. Two
of those were identified as
the most favorable options
by the commission. These
were renegotiating an ex-
isting road paving loan for
additional funds and es-
tablishing "geographically
discrete" municipal service
benefit units (MSBUs) for
paving projects and bor-
rowing to fund each proj-
ect separately, with MSBU
tax revenues from property
owners in each area to serve
as a revenue stream to re-
pay loans.
"I would like to see how
much we can do for $5 mil-
lion," Meadows said. Bell
pledged to research that
and provide information at
a future date.

Funding for county road
projects will be discussed
further at a special commis-
sion meeting at 3:30 p.m. on
April 8 at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex. This
meeting is open to public at-
tendance and input.

"We had hoped to have
at least 300 people for to-
day's event and it looks like
we have far exceeded that
number," said Freeport
Area Council representative
Latilda Henninger. "The
community support has
been phenomenal."
The Easter egg hunt/
spring festival event was
held by the Freeport Fire
Department in conjunction
with the Freeport Town
Planters Society and Free-
port Area Council on March
22, at the Freeport Middle
School football field.
Along with the egg hunt,
citizens could participant in
three-legged races, wheel-
barrow races and sack races.
Raffles were held through-
out the day and winners
were awarded giant Easter


baskets. The Easter Bunny,
McGruff the Crime Dog and
Sparky the Fire Dog were
also on hand.
"Being a leader in the
community it is important
that we provide education as
well as community support,"
said Freeport Fire Chief Ben
Greenslait. "Events such as
this are a way to reward
families for being part of the
community."
There was no fee for the
event, and those in atten-
dance were also provided
with a free lunch. "This is a
totally free event. We don't
want anyone to be excluded
because of cost," said Hen-
ninger. "We are already in
the planning stages for next
years event."
According to Greenslait,
over 600 citizens attended
the sun-drenched event.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2008


Ask Auntie Em

Dear Auntie Em,
Something that has been a challenge to me for many years is surprise visits to my
door by members of certain religious organizations who want to share their religion
with me. This is despite the fact that I am also a person of faith who respects the be-
liefs of each individual, including those of these missionaries. I do appreciate their in-
terest in their fellow man and their willingness to share their faith. However, I found
in the past that for me participating in regular discussions with these visitors was
not productive. Rather than discussions, they became indoctrination sessions, mostly
on matters that seemed relatively minor to me. This may be my experience and no
one else's, but I would like to be able to discourage these visits without offending the
visitors. Do you have any suggestions for me?
Earnestly respectful in eastern Bay County
(name and address withheld by request)
Dear Earnest,
What a wonderful world we would live in if everyone were able to display your
respect and tolerance for other religions. Auntie Em had two very strong female role
models growing up who handled this situation in different ways. The first simply re-
fused to answer the door and the visits stopped after a few times. The second would
invite them in, make a pot of tea and then indoctrinate them in a triple session of
science, evolution and physics, along with some biblical history. I walked up to her
home on more than one occasion to see pamphlets flying in the air and them making
a break for their car.
It is a shame that the people to whom you try and be nice feel that they have the
right to push their faith on you because you answered your door. I am afraid that in
your effort to not offend, you have given your visitors hope that you can be swayed
from your faith. They will continue to visit until you put your foot down.
If you have a problem with conflict then maybe practicing what you will say next
time may help put an end to your issue. I would suggest something along the lines of,
"Thank you for the material. I appreciate that you are strong in your faith as I am in
mine. I have to respectfully ask that you not visit me again as I feel our conversations
have reached an impasse. Although I appreciate your need to spread your faith, by
continuing to come to my home, you are disrespecting me and my beliefs. Please do
not return. Thank you and goodbye." Use a firm voice and then shut the door.
Remember to be careful in this day and age answering your door for people you
don't know. It is perfectly acceptable to speak through the door and say, "No thanks,
I'm not interested." Put a no solicitations and no trespassing sign in your front yard,
as they give you legal backing if you have to have someone removed and also gives un-
welcome visitors pause. A large dog can also make for an uninterrupted household.
You have tried to go the route of your faith but your kindness is being abused
at this point. Let your faith be your foundation and and you will get your message
across. Take care, be strong and God bless.

Victory over death
through Christ *
Death is such a mystery.
The great apostle Paul wrote
of it in 1 Corinthians 15:22, 23.
He wrote "For as in Adam all
die, even so in Christ shall all
be made alive. But every man
is his own order: Christ the
first fruits; afterward they that
are Christ's at His coming."
When, I, as it were, look
death in the face with friends
and with my own family, I find
comfort and help in this pas-
sage of God's Word. I find that
we can have victory over death
by the resurrection of Christ.
We have no reason to hope that
we will survive death apart
from Christ and His resurrec-
tion.
We shall have a real body.


The resurrected Christ in His
glorified body gives us our best
glimpse of glory and our clear-
est idea of what our resurrected
bodies will be like. He was not a
ghost or a phantom or figment
of the imagination, but a real
person with a real body. The
Scriptures record His appear-
ance to as many as 500 people.
They touched Him, ate with
Him, talked with Him, and
they saw His wounds from the
cross. He was real.
Christ's was a transcendent
body. It was real yet it was also
transcendent. His resurrected
body was not limited as His
mortal body had been. It had
been transformed, after His
death, by the power of God. His
resurrection body was suited
for the heavenly realms. Thus
we get a glimpse of what our
resurrection bodies will be like.
Christ's was a spiritual
body. So ours shall be (v.44).
Those who believe in our Lord
Jesus Christ shall no longer
have mortal, dying bodies, but
spiritual ones suited to that
other realm, heaven. Think of
the hope it holds for us who are
in Christ through faith. One
day we, too, are going to receive
imperishable, glorious, spiri-
tual bodies. And it will all come
through faith in the crucified,
dead, buried, and resurrected
Lord Jesus Christ. Have you
ever received Him?

How to fish with scented baits


By Scott Suggs
Scented baits catch more
fish. That's a fact. And be-
cause of that, scented baits
of various styles are hitting
the market at a seemingly
weekly basis. With the glut
of new products out there all
vying for your dollars, an-
glers need to become famil-
iar with the subtleties and
limitations of these baits
if they hope to catch more
fish.
Nearly everyone that uses
scented baits has their own
ideas and techniques on how
best to use them. But before
you cast one into your favor-
ite lake or pond, there's one
word to keep in mind: slow.
To maximize the effec-
tiveness of scented baits you
have to fish the bait very
slow. Whether you catch
fish for a living or just for

fun, you have to have a min-
imum amount of patience
and this is where it will pay
off. Because the baits have
built-in attractants, many
anglers get excited and want
to get the bait in the water
in as many different places
as possible hoping that the
increased number of pre-
sentations will increase the
likelihood of a strike. But
it's not the quantity of pre-
sentations that is important
- it's the quality.
Scented baits release so
much scent in an area. It
disperses more scent than
any other soft plastic bait on
the market and it is impor-
tant that you fish the bait
slowly. This helps to build
up a scent cloud in the area.
That way you don't neces-
sarily have to get the bait in
front of the fish to attract its
attention. By filling the area
with scent, fish that wouldn't
normally pay attention to

of their time in an inactive

be drawn in. That's why I
like to rig my drop-shot rigs
with scented baits. By dan-

don't have to worry about
putting the bait in front of a
fish for it to be effective.
I've witnessed the evolu-
tion of scent technology go-
ing back to when we used
fish oils and other homemade
scents to apply to our baits.
I always wanted a scent that
stayed on the bait and tast-
ed good enough that the fish
would hang on longer. But I
also wanted a scent that dis-
persed. For decades we had
to settle for one or the other
- a kind of Catch-22. But

New plan gives sports program big $$$ increase


New plan gives sports pro-
gram big $$$ increase
By PATRICK CASEY
Jim McCall, chief finan-
cial officer for the Walton
County School District, pre-
sented board members at
the March 4 regular meet-
ing with detailed informa-
tion concerning athletic re-
ceipts and disbursements
for the year that ended
June 30. 2007. The report
was prepared with the hope
of providing details as 'to
where additional funding
for athletics comes from, as
well as what expenses the
area schools are responsible
for covering.
The idea is to find a fund-
ing formula that is equitable
to all schools while reduc-
ing or streamlining athletic
fundraisers so that fewer of
them would be required or
permitted.
"The board requested we
look into athletic funding in
the latter part of last year.
You had two points: Are we
doing enough to help our
schools with athletic fund-
ing, and, can we do more to
offset the athletic fundrais-
ers?" McCall reported.
"The two things schools
have in common (expense-
wise) are transportation
and game officials. No mat-
ter what school you go to
or what sport you are talk-
ing about, they have to get
there and they have to have
game officials. Officials are
very expensive, to the tune
of $91,000 last year," Mc-
Call added.
Pay for game officials has
risen in recent seasons due
to scarcity and the sheer
numbers needed to officiate
sports. Football uses 5-7 of-
ficials for most games with
basketball employing 2-3
per contest with baseball,
softball and volleyball using
two each. Officials usually
get paid for both junior var-
sity and varsity contests and
receive mileage .for travel,
depending on which of sev-
eral refereeing associations
is used from the Panhandle-
Big Bend area.
As everyone knows, the
price of fuel continues to
rise. Transportation costs to
travel to athletic events is
rising as well. Each school
is allocated money for travel


to athletic events based on
previous year's history of
mileage.
"In the past, we have set
a limit for the number of
miles that they have, then if
they had any money left over
in the transportation bud-
get, which they never did,
we tried to charge them for
the amount they went over
the allocation we had given
them. Under this plan, the
amount of miles they use
for transportation, we don't
charge them for that," Mc-
Call explained to the board.
According to a chart
provided at the meeting,
schools income and ex-
penses can vary consider-
ably (see chart). Research
shows ticket sales account
for $196,000, fundraisers
for $164,000 and donations
in the amount of $74,000.
Uniform costs to outfit
all athletic teams for the
2006-07 school year totaled
over $154,000 with equip-
ment costs for athletics at
$112,000. Game officials
were paid over $91,000
with supplies totaling over
$75,000. Transportation
and bus drivers cost over
$31,000, and likely more, as
miscellaneous expenses to-
taled over $86,000.
District 3 representative
Sharon Roberts questioned
some of the monetary num-
bers on the provided hand-
out. "The fundrasiers on
some of the schools look off
on the amounts. Some are
real low compared to oth-
ers."
Vice Chairman and Dis-
trict 2 representative Bill
Laird commented, "This
is not the total cost, by no
means, of athletics. This
does not include salaries for
athletic directors as well as
supplements. I don't want
the public to be misled that
this (chart) is it."
The new plan calls for the
district to pay all transpor-
tation costs without back-
charging the schools for
these costs, which includes
fuel and pay for the bus
* driver. The cost of all game
officials will be paid by the
district. Each of the four
county high schools (Wal-
ton, Freeport, South Walton
and Paxton) will receive an
additional $10,000 to defray


the cost of uniforms, equip-
ment and athletic supplies.
The county's three middle
schools (Walton, Freeport
-and Emerald Coast) will re-
ceive $5,000.
Schools will be strongly
encouraged to continue only
the most effective fundrais-
ers as part of the plan. The
board originally planned
to approve all fundraisers,
but backed off that idea at
the March 18 meeting at
Freeport High School. The
issue of direct liability that
the board could create by
approving every fundraiser
caused concern with the dis-
trict's insurance provider,
prompting the board to pull
that point from the agenda
item.

McCall added at the
March 4 meeting that some
fundraisers, like advertis-
ing signs, golf tournaments
and concessions, do not take
a lot of student time as they
are more likely to be run by
adults. The idea is to utilize
fundraisers that don't take
time away from students
classroom obligations.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson mentioned at the
beginning of the discus-
sion that she had met with

school athletic directors
twice to discuss financial
support and fundraising ef-
forts. "Gathering informa-
tion was the first place to
start. Meeting with athletic
directors and principals has
brought us to this proposal.
My main goal in this is that
we'fund those things which
are approved by our board
and allowed in our schools
for our students; that we
fund them properly and effi-
ciently. Also, my second goal
is to get our students out of
the fundraising business."
Walton High School
Athletic Director Lenny
Jankowski was happy to
hear of the new plan, and
additional monetary support
for the county's schools. "We
can use it. The superinten-
dent has been very helpful
in working out a plan that
can provide some relief to
individual schools with ath-
letic costs that are rising."
Freeport High School Ath-
letic Director Jim Anderson
was very pleased with the
decision as well. "We needed
some relief from the rising
expenses and it will help us
not to have to focus on rais-
ing money to just compete
at the basic level."
Paxton High School is the


only school in the county that
does not have a high school
football team, but it will still
benefit from the agreement.
The Bobcats opened their
new gymnasium to record
crowds this past basketball
season and have a baseball
team coming off a region fi-
nal appearance in 2007. The
Bobcats' district alignment
in Class A requires several
trips to Pensacola and Mil-
ton to compete in athletic
events against similar-sized
schools, so the added relief
of having travel expenses
paid for will be a boon for
the school, which does not
have to offset the cost of a
football program.
Chairman Darrell Barn-
hill, who was the one to ask
to have the board approve
all fundraisers for athletics,
asked to have the schools
provide a detailed report
from the athletic directors
as to where the money will.
go. This is to prevent one
sport from getting an unfair
amount of the budget over
others. Concerns of gender
equity among athletic pro-
grams and Title IX issues
also sparked concern as to
how money will be divided
up among both gender's
sports.

"I think this is a good
plan. I think we are headed
in the right direction," Barn-
hill commented.
Money to help pay for
more of the schools' athletic
expenses will likely come
from the millage referen-
dum that voters renewed
last summer. The referen-
dum, which has helped with
pay raises for teachers, also
allows for improvement of
district programs, athletics
among them. The financial
impact will likely relieve
$200,000 to $400,000 worth
of athletic related expenses.
This new plan will provide
significantly more money
for the district sports pro-
gram than has ever been
spent, and much greater
than the amounts raised by
past ticket sales, donations,
fundraising events and dis-
trict allotments for officials,
equipment and transporta-
tion.
"In the meetings I had
with our athletic directors,
this was a consistent theme
on what we could do to
help," Superintendent An-
derson commented. "These
are things we need to pro-
vide so that our students
aren't having to raise funds
for those needs."

by area teams. Three of the
five teams in our coverage
area qualified for the state
playoffs (PDL, Walton and
Paxton) with four of the five


teams finishing with more
wins than losses.
The DeFuniak Herald re-
cently selected the All-Area
team from girls basketball
players from Paxton, South
Walton, Freeport, Walton
and Ponce de Leon.

Shereka Bramlet. Walton: Jasmine Moore, Tori Lincoln,

PDL SENIOR CENTER
two Final Four trips while
reer.


MARY HOWES LED PDL to
scoring over points in her ca-


chosen as our Player of the
Year after helping the Pax-
ton Bobcats to a 25-6 record
while averaging 13.6 points
per game as well as being
one of the top free throw
shooters in the area. Gil-
bert scored more than 1,000
points in her career and was
one of the reasons the Bob-
cats earned a trip to Lake-
land this season.
Mary Howes was a close
second in the Player of the
Year voting. Howes, who
wrapped up her playing ca-
reer at PDL this season, av-
eraged 13.8 points per game
as the Pirates went 23-6
this season. Howes missed
13 games at the beginning
of the year due to a broken
foot, but scored 30 points
against Walton as the Pi-
rates went 13-3 after her re-
turn.
South Walton's Taylor
Griffith finished her career
for the Seahawks after the
squad went 19-7 this season
but just missed there playoffs
due to another close loss to
Walton in the district tour-
nament. Griffith was one
of the deadlier three-point
shooters in the area and av-
eraged 11.5 points per game
while scoring, over 1,000
points in her career at South
Walton.
Nicole Dykes finished her
Freeport playing career with
a 13-11 record while leading
the area in scoring at 14.8
points per game. Dykes, who
is listed at 5-foot, 3-inches,
played much larger in her
career at Freeport as she
scored more than 1,000
points in her career while
helping Freeport to several


winning seasons during her
time on the squad.
Walton's Betsy Stevenson
is the only underclassman
on the first team. Steven-
son led Walton in scoring
by averaging 10.6 points per
game as the Braves earned
a playoff bid for the second
consecutive year.

Herb Haddock is the
Coach of the Year as Pax-
ton earned their first trip
to the state tournament in
Lakeland in a decade after
facing significant losses due
to graduation in 2007. Had-
dock's staunch defensive
style led to domination in
District 1 for the Bobcats
yet again as Paxton went
10-0 against district foes.
Nicole Dykes won the
Most Valuable Player
Award as she scored 32 per-
cent of all the points for the
Freeport girls basketball
team, the highest contribu-
tion by any of our area play-
ers. Shereka Bramlet takes
home the award for being
the most valuable player
coming off the bench for the
South Walton Seahawks
while PDL freshman Hil-
lary Harper is our freshman
newcomer after averaging
7.8 points per game for the
Pirates while filling in for
the injured Howes.
Many of our area girls
basketball players had a
good year and there is no
reason to believe that many
of the same players in the
Honorable Mention section
won't be leading their re-
spective teams to success in
the 2008-09 season this No-
vember.


FREEPORTS NICOLE DYKES (41) GARNERED our
Most Valuable Player Auward after four years of play on the
Bulldogs varsity team.


SOUTH WALTON'S SHAREKA BRAMLET WON the
6th Woman Award coming off Kevin Craig's bench during
the 2007- 08 season.


SOUTH WALTON'S TAYLOR GRIFFITH LED the Sea-
hawks in scoring with 11.5 points per game as the squad
finished 19-7.


PDL FRESHMAN HILLARY HARPER TOOK home the
Freshman of the Year Award after averaging 7.8 points per
game for the Pirates.

Burke


proceedings


move forward


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I caution you," said
Judge Kelvin Wells. "It is
unwise to represent your-
self."
"I do not wish to have an
attorney," suspended South
Walton County Mosquito
Control District (SWCM-
CD) Commissioner Charlie
Burke responded.
Burke came before Judge
Wells on Thursday, March
20, for pre-trial proceed-
ings concerning charges the
state has brought against
him. The state contends
that Burke committed a
third-degree felony by fal-
sifying election documents
prior to his running for the
SWCMCD commissioner's
position. Burke used an ad-
dress in Santa Rosa Beach
on those documents. The
state contends Burke is a
resident of Bay County. The
offence is punishable by up
to five years in prison, a
$5,000 fine or both. Burke
has steadfastly denied the
charges.
During Thursday's
proceedings, Wells went
through a litany of reasons
why Burke should not rep-
resent himself. "An attor-


ney would be able to find
legalities the average per-
son could not find. Lawyers
can call witnesses and know
the rules of evidence." Wells
warned. "You will receive no
special treatment and will
have to play by the same
rules as an attorney. I won't
be available to help you at
trial. If you are convicted
the maximum punishment
is five years in the custody
of the Department of Cor-
rections. Do you still want
to represent yourself?"
"I started to 'apply for
a public defender but did
not like the wording on the
form," said Burke. "I will
just have to stand on my
own two feet.
"The record is clear,, I
am a resident of Walton
County," added Burke. "The
charges that have been
brought against me are po-
litically motivated."
Greg Anchors, supervisor
of the Walton County State
Attorney s office, feels oth-
erwise. "The state plans to
proceed with this case," An-
chors said.
The case is on the motion
docket for April 1.

SWCC talks



turtles


By LEAH STRATMANN
Most of what we know
about marine turtles around
here is what we hear from
groups such as the South
Walton Turtle Watch on how
to protect nesting turtles
and how to help hatchlings
reach the water. However,
attendees at the last meeting
of the South Walton Com-
munity Council last week
were treated to an in-depth
look at a number of types of
marine turtle species, five
of which are found in and
around area beaches.
A film was shown on the
varieties of marine turtles
detailing how turtle hatch-
lings come from beneath the
sand to embark on a journey
as they have for millions
of years. The loggerhead
turtle, the most commonly
found in this area, is a soli-
tary creature. It takes 20 to
30 years for a female ma-
rine turtle to reach breeding
maturity. Female marine
turtles always return to the
beaches in the area where
they hatched to bury their
eggs in the sand.
Lorna Patrick, a biolo-
gist with the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (USFWS)
has been dealing with turtle
issues for the past 20 years,
said, "All sea turtles are con-
sidered endangered because


they also depend on the land
to survive. Loggerheads are
named for the large heads
and can weigh up to 300
pounds, are solitary and
found in temperate and sub-
tropical waters. A feinale
loggerhead returns to the
beach where they were born
to bury their eggs.
"Between May and Au-
gust is the nesting season
and each adult female nests
two or three times during
one season, but does not
nest every year. Only 60
of 100 eggs will hatch and
those eggs kept warmest
produce female hatchings,
while cooler temperatures
produce male loggerheads."
Patrick showed an aerial
photograph of Destin tak-
en in 1964 when the area
beaches were virtually va-
cant. "Can you-imagine the
adult female loggerhead re-
turning in 30 years to lay
her eggs and finding this,"
she asked, switching to an
aerial photograph of the
same region in 1994. Issues
such as development have
clearly had an impact on
nesting marine turtles be-
cause of changes in topogra-
phy and the building of sea
walls and such.
"Coastal development is
a threat to nesting habitats

about

U.S. 331
By DOTTY NIST
Walton County com-
missioners say they have
renewed hope that U.S.
331 will be widened in its
entirety to help motorist
safety and facilitate hurri-
cane evacuation. With hur-
ricane season approaching,
Walton County still has the
second-longest evacuation
time in the state, due to this
two-lane highway being the
county's only route to evacu-
ate the areas south of the
Choctawhatchee Bay.
State Representative Ray
Sansom (R-Destin),, met
with the. Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) and other lo-
cal officials on March 20 to
listen to concerns about the
U.S. 331 '"predicament," as
one BCC member termed
the situation.
Sansom, now the speaker
designate for the Florida
House of Representatives,
noted that, as a Northwest
Florida native, he has expe-
rience and an understanding
of the evacuation challenge.
He pledged his help in push-
ing for improvements to ma-
jor route U.S. 331. Sansom
agreed to contact the state
Department of Transporta-
tion (DOT) to seek a letter
setting the widening of U.S.
331 as a top priority.


"It's our number
one priority...no
getting it done is noi
an option," said Scott
Brannon on. the widening of
U.S. 331.

BCC Chairman Larry
Jones commented that, in
lobbying for federal fund-
ing to widen the highway,
the BCC has "consistently
heard" from federal officials
that such a letter is key to
obtaining such funding.

ing but respect for Mr.
Ramey," said Commissioner
Jim Crawford. "He will be
missed."

As the meeting .moved
on, the issue of drainage
problems along Churchill
Bayou Road and J.D. Miller
Road in Santa Rosa Beach
was addressed. "The county
and their contractors have
stopped the natural flow.of
the water," said Crawford.
"We may have to go to the
contractor responsible for
the work and see about their
liability insurance. Some of
the culverts they installed
are to small and must be re-
placed."
"This is a typical prob-
lem that is only going to get
worse," said Commissioner
John Magee. "The county
should engineer for larger
rain events."


The commissioners con-
tend that a bike path con-
structed along Churchill
Bayou Road was placed par-
tially in an existing ditch
that up to that time had
worked well. County officials
contend that the SWCMCD
had a chance to review the
plans prior to the construc-
tion but failed to do so.
"If we continue to have
large rain events the result
will not be good," said Direc-
tor Steve Sickerman. "We
have larvalbreeding grounds
under peoples' homes." Sick-
erman has been in contact
with the county and hopes
the issue can be resolved to
everyone's benefit.
Sickerman also addressed
the suspension of the dog fly
spraying program by the
Department of Agriculture.
The controversial program
has been hard-hit due to


budget issues and the aged
aircraft used in the program.
A 1942 model DC3 used in
the program had become
unsafe to fly and Governor
Charlie Crist vetoed a plan
to purchase a new plane.
The U.S. Air Force has a
C-130 capable of dispensing
pesticides but Sickerman
contends that plane is only
to be used in emergencies.
"If citizens want dog fly
protection they should call
the Department of Agricul-
ture and express their feel-
ings" said Sickerman. "We
cannot expect the Air Force
to be at our beck and call."

Walton County will be
sponsoring a hazardous
materials amnesty day on
Saturday, April 12, at the
SWCMCD location in Santa
Rosa Beach. Citizens can
bring in old tires, paint and
other household products
they need to dispose of. The
SWCMCD headquarters is
located at 774 N. CR-393.

TURTLES FROM FRONT


along with the rise in sea
levels," Patrick noted. "Sea
turtles know no national
boundaries, they cross all
national and international
boundaries so the only way'
to save turtles is to work
with other countries through
international regulation,
but conservation isn't about
managing turtles it is about
managing people."
Patrick said a turtle that
may have hatched here,
is only coming back to the
Panhandle to nest and USF-
WS just completed a 5-year.
status review and concluded,
turtles need to be managed
in units based on genetics.
"If we lose our turtles, we
don't expect our turtles to
come back," she said. Nest
numbers have decreased 50
percent in the Panhandle
since 1998 and these same
statistics are true of Walton
County.
"Green sea turtles are
increasing everywhere and
biologists don't know why,"
Patrick noted. Warm sand is
needed to incubate the eggs
females nest on dark beach-
es, which protects them
from predators. The eggs
hatch as a group and hit the
sand and head toward wa-
ter as a group for protection,.


but once in the water swim
away from the pack.
Some. of the man-made
threats to female nesting
are the loss of nesting areas,
beach lighting and driving,
poaching, commercial fish-
ing and boat strikes. Pat-
rick said we could all help
by building responsibly, by
sharing the beach, contrib-
uting time or money to con-
servation groups and by not
littering. 'Marine turtles
will eat anything and think
discarded plastic bags are
jellyfish and they will eat
them and it.will kill them."


Sharon Maxwell, coor-
dinator for the South Wal-
ton Turtle Watch (SWTW)
showed some photos of
hatchings and nesting
tracks from last season. She
explained the group holds
a state permit giving them
permission to walk the 20
miles of beaches seven days
a week during the nesting
season looking for both
adult and hatchling sea tur-
tle tracks. She pointed out
that beaches on state land
are patrolled by state park
personnel.

ing SWTW should call

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 27,2008


U.S.331 FROM FRONT


Jones said he thought Wal-
ton County would have its
"best opportunity" with re-
gard to improving U.S. 331
with Sansom in the position
of house speaker. "We'll be
better poised to see some ac-
tivity that will work in our
favor;" Jones said, "he is a
friend of the county."
"I think the fact that
he (Sansom) is going to be
speaker will be really posi-
tive for this area," said Dis-
trict 5 Commissioner Cindy
Meadows.
"He understands our
problems;" agreed Dis-
trict 4 Commissioner Sara
Comander, "I have some
hope."
Comander recalled that
the county had first bqgun
to push for the widening of
U.S. 331 in the 1970s. "It's
getting critical," she said.
District 2 Commissioner
Ken Pridgen was pleased
to have representatives of
the cities of Freeeport and
DeFuniak Springs at the
March 20 gathering to voice
their support for the expan-
sion of U.S. 331. Freeport
Mayor Mickey Marse and
DeFuniak Springs City
Councilman James Hoff-
man were present. Pridgen
said he was "really encour-
aged" by the meeting.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon said the BCC
is determined' to "keep this
issue fresh" with state and
federal officials, even more


so in the current "lean bud-
get years."
Brannon remarked, "It's
our number one priority...
not getting it done is not an
option."
Brannon said be believes
there has been more prog-
ress with U.S. 331 over the
past couple of years, with
$41 million in funding being
devoted to improvements,
than over the past 20 or
more years.
Completed by DOT in
January was one improve-
ment to the highway, a
5.5-mile, two-lane bypass in
the Freeport area. In con-
junction with that project,
right-of-way was acquired
for future expansion of the
bypass to four lanes. Utility
relocation is now underway
to prepare for the beginning
of construction later this
year on the four-lane expan-
sion of the U.S. 331 highway
section between U.S. 98 and
the south end of the Clyde
B. Wells Bridge.
DOT has identified no
construction funds for ex-
pansion of the bridge, which
crosses the Choctawhatchee
Bay, nor for any sections of
the highway north of the
bridge. Four-laning of sec-
tions of U.S. 331 between
the bridge and S.R. 20 is in
various stages of planning
by DOT.
It is the bridge that has
been the biggest obstacle
in the effort to get U.S. 331


widened. In the past, esti-
mates to expand the bridge
to four lanes have gone as
high as half a billion dol-
lars.
However, DOT's latest es-
timate is slightly less daunt-
ing at $313 million. Tommie
Speights, public information
officer for DOT's District 3,
said the agency has done
design work for expansion
of the bridge through con-
struction of a 2.2-mile "sis-
ter bridge" for northbound
traffic. Under the plan, the
existing bridge would be de-
voted to southbound traffic.
In 2005, the BCC had
investigated the possibil-
ity of expanding the bridge
through a state toll bridge
program, but Pridgen said
that is no longer being con-
sidered. He said the latter
program has experienced
budget cuts and that he ex-
pects pursuing other fund-
ing options is now the quick-
er and better way to go.
Recently several of the
commissioners traveled to
Washington, D.C. to urge
for federal funding of Wal-
ton County's top needs, in-
cluding funding to four-lane
U.S. 331. Pridgen said the
commissioners plan to trav-
el to Tallahassee on March
26 to meet with legislators
and DOT officials and con-
tinue to lobby for funding to
expand U.S. 331.
"It's going to take every-
one's involvement," said
Meadows.
"The important thing
is keeping this in front of
them," Pridgen observed.

cially in ArtsQuest's 20th
year. "I've been a part of
ArtsQuest for many years,:
she says, "For my work to
be represented during the
20th anniversary is a real
honor."
Nan Ream, ArtsQuest
Chair, had the pleasure of
delivering the good news to
Gaffrey. "The Cultural Arts
Association has always been
grateful to Billie for her con-
tributions to the art commu-
nity, locally and nationally,
Nan says, "We had many
great submissions, but Bil-
lie's piece evoked all' the
feelings of celebration that
ArtsQuest has inspired over
the years."
Gaffrey began painting
while in high school and, co-
incidentally, .will celebrate
a personal milestone this
year, her 20-year high school
reunion. Like ArtsQuest,
which began as the Grayton
Beach Fine Arts Festival in
1989, Gaffrey also began her
professional career in Gray-
ton Beach when she opened
her first gallery in the art-
ist colony once known as
Patrones. She says she feels
the growth of ArtsQuest is
parallel to her life and a re-
flection of her own growth
as an artist during the past


20 years. She says, "I am
proud of how far we have all
come." .
Gaffrey Opened her Blue
Mountain Beach art studio
and gallery, the Gaffrey Art
Galleryc',in 1992, and she
now shares the work space
with her husband, artist
Justin Gaffrey, and their
two children, both also art-
ists. Gaffrey's work consists
primarily of acrylic paint-
ings that depict her lives
past, present and future.
She claims, "My true infatu-
ation is wild paintings of my
alter-ego."
The 20th anniversary of
ArtsQuest, produced by the
Cultural Arts Association,
is a week-long celebration of
the arts happening May 4 -
11. The Student Art Exhibit
will be just one of the events
that will take place on
Wednesday, May 8 at But-
ler Elementary School, 5:30
- 7 p.m., and the Seaside
Neighborhood School, 2:30 -
6 p.m. Gaffrey will be avail-
able at the Seaside location
to sign posters purchased by
ArtsQuest attendees.

You see
them race
down the
road, or
you see j
them
parked
behind ,
glass. No
matter how you see
them far away, you
can get a glimpse of
automobile history
up close this
weekend at the
seventh annual Rt.
30A Antique and
Vintage Car Show
in Rosemary Beach.
--------------------------------------
The seventh annual Rt.
30 A Antique and Vintage
Car' Show returns to
Rosemary Beach. Line-up
and registration begins at 9
a.m the morning of the
show and the event takes
place from 10 a.m. 4 p.m.
For the past six years,
every make and model from
Cadillacs to Corvettes, and
from Mustangs to
Mercedes, have filled the
lawns at Rosemary Beach.
From classic Fords to
metal-heavy Chevys, every
little boy's (and most
adults') dream seems to
come true when they get
around these classic works
of automotive art.
From their streamline
craftsmanship, to the last
detail on the chrome
bumpers, the shine and
sparkle of the cars are
polished to brilliance as
attendees make their way
around the more than 50
cars annually. It is a


MAO


chance to learn how the
vehicles were made in the
early days of automobile
manufacturing and how
many of the cars displayed
at the event have survived
for so many decades.

Throughout the day, car
owners have a chance to
boast about their finds,
demonstrate to the crowds
how they prepare their
masterpiece for a show, and
explain the importance of
their vehicle. It also gives a
chance for younger car
enthusiasts to learn about
the dedication, time and
money that the owners
went through in order to
perfect their. piece of
automobile history.
One interesting aspect of
the annual show at
Rosemary Beach, is the
number of women car
owners that have begun to
emerge from the sea of
male drivers, car owners
and enthusiasts. From
wearing lipstick that
matches their interior of
their 57 Chevy, to
explaining how the chassis
and tire alignment was the
reason for their slow pick-
up, these ladies of the
chrome-plated automobile
-era, have made their case
known that they can drive
it! Fix it! Show it! and most
of all, can afford it!


For six
11 years, a
w i d e
i s variety of
.l- cars, trucks,
motorcycles,
boats,
('tisjc- campers
and other
antique and
vintage
autos, have made their way
down Cty Rd. 30A for the
event that transforms the
lawns of Rosemary Beach,
into the classic and vintage
showroom of the Jackson-
Barrett Auctions. One can
find a popular 65 Mustang
with the top down and the
Beach Boys music blaring
from the radio, or they
might be able to run across
that rare 71 Mercury
Comet.
No matter what the taste
or favorite vehicle might
be, the annual Rt. 30A
Antique and Vintage Car
Show has something for
everyone.
Everyone that comes to
the show is also given the
opportunity to vote for
their favorite. At the
conclusion of the
afternoon's show, the third,
second and People's Choice
Award will be presented to
the winners.

Gift bags for the first 35
car owners will be given,
while a variety of classic
and popular tunes will spin
from under the
entertainment 'ent. All
entrees that are
registering," mus' be more
than 25 years old and in
good condition.
For more information, or
vehicle registration, call
Hilltop Productions at 951-
2148.


OVER 100 GUESTS AND Art enthusiasts gathered at Toni's Farmer's Market in Santa.
Rosa Beach this past weekend, to get a glimpse of artwork by local artists John Parsons.
From watercolor and pastels to pen and ink, Parsons' painting reflected his environment,
experiences and his education in architecture.

COVENANT HOSPICE WILL present an Advance
Care Planning seminar on April 21, from 5:30 to 6:30
p.m. at the Crescent Park Village Assisted Living Fa-
cility, located at 551 Redstone Avenue W in Crestview.
"The Power of Advance Directives" will provide tools
for the public to complete written advance directives,
commonly known as a living will. One of these tools is
a booklet entitled, "Five Wishes," which allows an in-
dividual to identify how they would like to be treated
if they get seriously ill. "The Five Wishes booklet is a
living will that helps you choose your personal, emo-
tional, and spiritual needs, as well as your medical
wishes," says Holly Adams, RN, Community Educa-
tor for Covenant Hospice, who will be facilitating the
seminar. There is no cost for the seminar, and it is
open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
The presentation will cover the following topics:
If you could not speak for yourself, who would you
want to make healthcare decisions for you?
What kind of care would you want?
What are the requirements for a living will?
What is a DNRO (Do Not Resuscitate Order), and
why is it important?
Once completed, what do you do with your advance
directive?
Although several states have engaged in advance
directive awareness events, only a small minority of
Americans have their wishes in writing. If you would
like more information, about the "The Power of Ad-
vance Directives" seminar, or would like a copy of
"Five Wishes", visit the Covenant Hospice office in
Crestview located at 370 Redstone Drive W, or call
