More Freeport

developers seek

extensions


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport City Coun-
cil met on March 27. Real es-
tate market woes continued
to come before the Council.
Bonnie Nick, representing
Nick's Complex, an office
complex and restaurant de-
velopment, appeared before
the Council and asked for
an extension for the project.
A six-month extension was
approved by the Council
The Nick request was fol-
lowed by Thomas Marr, rep-
resenting the Hidden Pines
townhome development just
north of Pine Street. He said
he doubts there is a lender
who would provide financ-
ing given the current eco-
nomic situation. Marr asked
the Council for a one-year
extension. Councilman Earl
King cautioned the Council,
reminding them that a prec-
edent of six-month exten-
sions has already been set.
Following this, the Council
approved a six-month ex-
tension for Hidden Pines.

cil on the status of an agree-
ment between Freeport and
the Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) which es-
tablishes a requirement for
developers to schedule "Fair
Share" infrastructure pay-
ments at the time a develop-
ment order is issued. King
said this made good sense
because it would separate
those developers who are ca-
pable of undertaking a large
project from mere specula-
tors. The Council approved
the agreement.
Attorney Clay Adkinson
told the Council that three
properties off of Bay Loop
Road near the entrance to
Water View Cove have re-
quested annexation. An
enclave would not be de-
veloped by this annexation.

THERE HAS been focus on the Rock Hill Road area north of Freeport in recent months
by the county due to an increase in borrow pit, sand and fill dirt mining activity, along with
reports of negative traffic and environmental impacts from this activity.



Rock Hill Road area


residents ask for relief


By DOTTY NIST
Rock Hill Road area resi-
dents got the ear of county
commissioners on March 25
when they appealed for re-
lief of conditions resulting
from the many borrow pits
operating in their vicinity.
Approved at the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing on that date were several
measures aimed at address-
ing quality of life, safety and
environmental issues in this
rural community north of
Freeport.
Rock Hill Road resident
Eileen West told the com-
missioners that "all Hell"
has now "broken loose" in
the community, with as
many as 18 dump trucks


"What is happening out there (in the Rock
Hill Road area) is mines, "Eileen West asserted.


per hour traveling on Rock
Hill Road. West spoke of
"degradation to the environ-
ment" and "devastation to
wetlands" in the vicinity of
the borrow pits.
Earlier this year, the state
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection (DEP) issued
warning letters to a number
of pits in Walton County,
some of them located in the
Rock Hill Road area. The
letters called for pit own-
ers to meet with officials to
discuss correction of alleged

Paxton Comprehensive Plan

workshop draws no one


By BRUCE COLLIER
Suppose they gave a work-
shop and nobody came?
Walton County Planning
and Development Services
Director Pat Blackshear,
along with District 2 Com-
missioner Kenneth Pridgen
and two staffers, brought
maps, printed handout ma-
terials, and themselves to
Paxton's town hall on March
26. Their reason for com-
ing was to hold a two-hour
workshop to get public input
on proposed amendments to
the county's Comprehensive
Plan. The county is prepar-


ing its 'evaluation and ap-
praisal report (EAR). The
EAR is a review in detail of
the Comprehensive Plan,
required by state law every
seven years.
The report assesses the
success of the plan in meet-
ing present and future coun-
ty and community needs.
The growth and change in
Walton County has raised
concerns that the plan may
need amendments. Accord-
ingly, the county planners
scheduled workshops in
Paxton, DeFuniak Springs,
Freeport, Mossy Head, and


other communities in north
and south Walton County to
hear and address public in-
put. The first workshop was
held March 18, and they will
continue through June 4 at
various locations.
Paxton had its chance
last Wednesday, but public
attendance was zero.
Blackshear and Pridgen
both expressed surprise
that no one had shown
up, including town council
members. On display were
grid maps showing Paxton,

age.
"(T)hat does not seem to
stop it," West said of the let-
ters. She said that rather
than slowing down follow-
ing the warnings, pit activ-
ity in her area has "more
than doubled."
West was concerned about
possible environmental im-
pact on the Rock Hill Road
area's watershed, since well

VWho's living in the neighborhood?


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
has just instituted a new of-
fender alert system that will
alert residents via email if a
sexual offender or predator
have moved into their area.
The site lets citizens input
their address and will send
out a notification if a preda-
tor or offender moves into
their neighborhood. The
FDLE website returned re-
cords of 111 sexual offenders
and predators currently reg-
istered and living in Walton
County.
With more and more resi-
dents becoming aware of


Area citizens and county
employees pulled together
March 27 to organize a din-
ner fundraiser to benefit
the Cosson family, whose
daughter Katie suffered a
brain injury in October. The
event raised over $1,200 for
the Cossons and organizers
thank all who purchased
plates and those who donat-
ed their time to prepare and
serve the foqd.
Since Katie's accident,
the Cosson family has
been struggling to pay the


the increasing numbers of
predators moving into their
towns, local law enforce-
ment officials say this pro-
gram is another tool to help
keep citizens and their fami-
lies safe.
According to Walton
County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) Capt. Eddie Far-
ris, the reason for the num-
ber of predators moving in
this area is an unknown but
may be due to cost of living
being cheaper in smaller
towns and the fact as most
offenders can only find work
in menial labor jobs due to
their arrest history.

resulted from the treatment
and medication needed for
Katie's brain injury. The
Cossons have been working
hard to maintain their busi-
ness, Pig Daddy's restau-
rant, while trying to see to
the needs of their family.
The fundraising event
was organized by Tom
Baker, Jim Cosson, and

Police Department (DF-
SPD) has been keeping an
eye on citizens interest and
safety as well where sexual
offenders and predators are
concerned. City Marshall
Mike Adkinson said, "The
children and the elderly are
given the highest priority as
far as my office is concerned
because they are often
the most vulnerable. The
name of our program the we
use to keep up with these in-
dividual is called The Good
Shepherd program. It's our
duty as law enforcement
official to look over and
protect our flock, so that is
where our name for the pro-


time to cook and serve. Jay
and Mary Mabry, owners of
the Busy Bee Caf6, gener-
ously prepared and donated
the sides for the meal, and
the First Methodist Church
served as the host site.
"It is so heartwarming to
see our community rally to-
gether in support of a won-
derful family. Thank you to
the community for helping
us have a successful event,"
said Tom Baker, event orga-
nizer.


"Handel's Last Chance" film at

Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood


The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood Foundation in-
vites everyone to come out
and enjoy another classic
family movie. This month's
movie is "Handel's Last
Chance."
It is a story about the
brilliant composer, George
Frederic Handel, whose ca-
reer is failing and he needs
his newest composition to be
a big hit. By a stroke of des-
tiny, a young poor boy lends
his golden voice to the first
performance of the Messiah.
The production is a captivat-
ing story filled with many of
Handel's musical works.
The movie will be shown
on Sunday, April 20, at 2
p.m. at the historic Chau-
tauqua Building on Circle
Drive. Admission is free
and everyone is invited for
an old-fashioned matinee
appropriate for all ages. An
adult must accompany all
children under the age of 12.


Refreshments will be avail-
able for purchase.
The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood Foundation is
a non-profit organization
and all donations are grate-
fully accepted. All proceeds


will be earmarked for the in-
stallation of a much-needed
elevator in the Chautauqua
Building. Call 892-9634 for
more information or check

gram came from. We have
a designated individual in
our office who keeps track
of the individuals we have
registered within our city.
We believe a very stern and
thorough follow-through is
needed to make sure these
individuals are not able to
harm again."
Capt. Farris said the
WCSO is also doing their
part to keep kids and fami-
lies safe from predators.
"We have deputies that are
assigned to go out every
month to verify that these
offenders are at their reg-
istered address. We make
sure that we make actual
physical contact with them
every month at the address
they have listed. We do this
as an unscheduled visit and
we won't take the word of
family or roommates if the
offender is not there. We
don't leave notes either. The
deputy will continue to re-
turn to the address listed
until they can verify resi-
dency. If the predator or of-
fender cannot be found, we
will request a warrant be
issued for their arrest, im-
mediately." Farris added, "If
citizens have questions or
concerns about their neigh-
borhood, they can contact
criminal investigator Angel-
ique Yates at the WCSO for
more information."

public workshop.


WORKSHOP

color-coded to indicate land-
use designations for specific
parcels of land, much of it
agricultural.

Some of the issues the
presenters intended to ad-
dress were building height
limits, protection of rural


land, the timber business,
water supply, biodiesel pro-
duction and its effect on ag-
riculture, and sustainable
agriculture. Blackshear and
Pridgen agreed on the need
to come up "good rural poli-
cy." h
There are no plans to re-


schedule the workshop in
Paxton, owing to the rela-
tively short time constraints
in preparing the EAR. For
those who were unable to
attend, Blackshear still in-
vites public questions and
comment, which can be sent
to blapat@co.walton.fl.us.


Relay For Life of De-
Funiak Springs will roll out
Sat., April 5, at Harbeson
Field on Highway 83 North.
The relay will sport a new
format this year, with open-
ing ceremonies at 11 a.m.
and closing after the Lumi-
naria Ceremony, scheduled
for 9 p.m. The relay will raise
funds for the American Can-
cer Society by means of on-
site donations and the sale
of foods and crafts offered at
the more than 20 individual
team campsites. There is no
admission charge.
The Survivors' Victory
Lap, scheduled for noon,
is an emotionally-charged
and uplifting feature of the
relay. The size and enthusi-
asm of the crowd of partici-
pants provide concrete proof
of progress in the ongoing
struggle against cancer and
its effects, and can be an im-
portant source of strength
and inspiration to those re-
cently diagnosed.
The Victory Lap will be
immediately followed by a


free luncheon honoring sur-
vivors and caregivers pre-
sented by the relay steering
committee at the Civic Cen-
ter adjacent to the field.
The Luminaria Ceremony
is another favorite feature
of the event. Paper bags
containing lights anchored
in sand circle the track,
each naming a lost loved
one in remembrance, or
honoring persons engaged
in their own winning battle
with cancer. The honor roll
of names is meanwhile an-
nounced with dignity over
the public address system.
A variety of foods, crafts,
desserts and other goodies
will be on sale throughout
the event by relay fundrais-
ing teams representing local
businesses, organizations
and individuals. Teams also
present educational exhibits
at their campsites, and vie
for honors based on camp-
site design, offerings, and
general organization. They
also attempt to keep mem-
bers circling the track at


all times during the relay,
although there will be no re-
lay police to monitor compli-
ance and their competition
will be based on the honor
system.
A range of talented local
entertainers will take turns
on .the stage, introduced by
M.C. Mike Fletcher, a Fort
Walton Beach-based D.J.
The relay regrets there will
be no opportunity to phone
in or text your vote on the
participants. Their perfor-
mances will be interspersed
with a variety of fun games
and events, such as the Mz.
Relay Pageant (men only-
wigs, makeup and heels
encouraged), the Newlywed
Game, and the Frozen T-
Shirt Contest.

All entertainment and
events will be family-friend-
ly. No alcohol or tobacco will
be permitted at the relay,
and local law enforcement
will maintain a protective
presence. For details, call

In the March 27, 2008 edition's article "Getting Back on
Track" a percentage was inadvertently dropped from the
article. The sentence should have read: "Having 74 percent
of the crashes occurring in rural areas and 45 percent of
those killed belonging to sheriffs' offices places greater em-
phasis on having a facility to teach young deputies to drive,
according to Johnson." In the original article, the rural per-
centage was given as seven percent.

"We're from the


state and we're

here to help"
By RON KELLEY

"No man's life, liberty or property is safe while the
legislature is in session." Though Judge Gideon Tuck-
er first uttered this phrase in 1886, it could have been
written yesterday.
Your Florida Legislature has been busy helping you.
Few things should strike greater fear in your heart.
They have come up with a swarm of new bills they
hope you'll pay uh, I mean approve.
One of them is the wonderful-sounding Taxpay-
er Bill of Rights (TABOR). This is a wolf in sheep's
clothing, if I've ever seen one. If you think red-tape
is strangling us now, just vote to approve this bill. It
puts each and every county budget decision in front
of the ever-dwindling voting public. This will be great
for special-interest groups who can fund an expensive
disinformation campaign to sway uninformed voters.
If you don't think that can happen, I have two words
for you pregnant pigs.
With voters barely interested enough to go to the
polls long enough to elect a president, what percent-
age of voters will actually be making all budgetary de-
cisions for the rest of us? Exactly.
This bill despite its flowery name doesn't pass
the smell test.
Another way that the state is trying to help you is
by tying the hands of county government through HB
683 ("Public Construction Contracting"). The huge
statewide construction contractors are spending mil-
lions throwing money at legislators so they'll force
local governments to hire outside contractors rather
than use their own cheaper, more efficient in-house
personnel for road paving and maintenance. This bad
bill would allow counties to only use in-house person-
nel for five percent of their projects. It also allows the
contractors to receive monetary damages from the
county for delays that are beyond their control. So,
if a project is delayed, we could wind up paying the
contractors even more money?
Thanks, guys! This will really clip the taxpayers
for even more cash and slow road projects to a crawl!
Good thinking! No one wants county government
making you guys look bad by actually saving taxpayer
dollars.
Now I understand why legislators call these things
"bills." I think we already know who pays them, too.
Instead of approving those two examples of shoddy
money management, I recommend you turn the tables
and help our state legislators learn to prioritize the
issues.
Vote yes on reducing unfunded mandates (CP46).
Every year, the state sends down these new mandates
and regulations and force counties to initiate them re-
gardless of the cost' without giving them a penny to
do it. Then county governments have to reduce the
money they were planning to spend on needed local
projects to pick up the slack.
Since 2001, the legislature has approved nearly 400
unfunded mandates on cities and counties at a cost of
$680 million annually. CP46 would raise the standard
for passing along these mandates, forcing the state to
hold hearings and provide real numbers and informa-
tion to the public. The state would have to prove its
case before sticking it to the city and county govern-
ments, who would have to pass the loss on to us.
Now is the time to stand up and say no. Send a mes-
sage to the elected officials who act as though they are
somehow entitled to hold that office that the "salad
days" are over. Then follow through by doing the one
thing they fear most go vote.

*LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
Hats off to Representative Don Brown. He has intro-
duced a bill in the current Florida legislative session to
authorize the issuance of a vehicle license plate having a
suitable design recognizing Confederate Heritage. Florida
issues many specialty plates, so the proposed Confederate
plate, if approved, would be one among many.
We would support this bill because it is fair and just.
The Southern people helped in the founding and shaping
of the American government. Confederate Heritage is en-
titled to recognition and respect no less than that of any
other culture or ethnic group.
James M. Crawford

Editor,
Being of sound mind and body, I am truly coming out
of the closet. Come on all you women voters out there. We
have come a long way since the early 1900's when we had
to fight to have a voice and be heard.
We have the best opportunity in the world to show what
we are made of I mean having the option to vote for a
woman presidnet. What a turn in the history of our country.
I personally think that a woman president is just what the
country needs. After all, we as women are certainly multi-
taskful, We can work, come home, cook and clean and look
after a brood of children all while balancing the check book
and making the grocery list. I somehow can't see the male
population being able to handle all that organization and
still have time for romancing the little woman. Let's face
it. And don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the
male species, they are hard working and great to look at,
and yes there are some men who can juggle all the afore-
mentioned traits but lets face it fellas! Women are better at
it. So can Hillary run our country? Why of course she can
with a frying pan in one hand and Bill in the other.
Let's not forget to vote for the best person to fill the task of
president. Make a good choice. Whatever you decide.
Necia Jones.
DeFuniak Springs

Editor:
Our town has many and good and honest people. Today
I'd like to mention one, Ms. Barbara Braswell, Recently,
she bought a purse at my elderly neighbor's moving sale.
Later, when she was going through the purse, she found
some money. Barbara promptly went about trying to find
our how to get the money back to the owner. Her reply
when I thanked her for her honesty was, "It wasn't mine;
I couldn't keep it." I agree with the neighbor who told me,
"You won't find a better person anywhere."

Editor:
Spring has begun, and warm weather is headed our way.
Now is the time to remind ourselves to drink more water.
And this isn't simply for those who are active out-of-doors.
I've read that a majority of Americans's health problems-
-both minor annoyances and serious ailments--are caused
primarily by internal dehydration. I was skeptical; but-as
an individual of otherwise healthful habits, I realized a
remarkable improvement in my own health as the result of
increased water intake practiced consistently.
It wasn't all overnight: some changes appeared within a
few days, while others completed themselves over a period
of many months. those benefits have continued for several
years now.
Virtually all digestive complaints result from water de-
privation, which leaves the system protected form the
various other contributing factors. Balancing and lubricat-
ing fluid reserves exist in the eyes, ears, lungs, joints and
muscles, which will thicken and stop working property
when the fresh water supply is kept too low, facilitating
conditions favorable to glaucoma, vertigo, asthma, respira-
tory and food allergies, diabetes,arthritis, and high blood
pressure. The brain is highly sensitive to water depriva-
tion; essential nutrients cannot be assimilated, common
toxins are not elimated, and chemical imbalances result.
The good news is that by consuming daily two or more
quarts of water, one may reverse many of the above, reduce
or eliminate joint and back pain, sleep well, think clearer,
resist germs better, handle stress more easily, quit smok-
ing or lose weight with less difficulty, and work out more
safely.
Challenge: try allowing a non-water beverage only once
a day. Drink water upon arising, before meals, after a
hot shower or exercises at least a cup at a time, I did also
supplement with vitamin C, zinc, and B-complex at first,
and I use sea salt on processed foods; the body needs salt
with its water. It doesn't need all the sugar it receives--one
tablespoon worth is maximum in the blood stream at all
given time.
God is so good. Water is one of his most abudant gifts.
Just thought I'd share.

THE PANELISTS FOR Walton County Prevention Coalition (photo at left) were Lieu-
tenant Tony Cornman of ABT, DeFuniak Springs, City Marshall Mike Adkinson, Jr., Ser-
geant Jimmy Fannin of Walton County Sheriff's Department Beach Patrol, Robert Smith
the Superintendent of ORDC (DJJ) in Okaloosa, Daniel Bears of DJJ and Matthew Christ -
SADD(Students Against Destructive Decisions) member from South Walton High School.


WC prevention coalition's

town hall meeting held


On March 25 at Freeport
High School, the Walton
County Prevention Coali-
tion and many community
partners took part in a na-
tional campaign of underage
drinking town hall meet-
ings. Local experts on un-
derage drinking in Walton
County were on a panel to
answer questions from the
community about underage
drinking.
The panelists included
Lieutenant Tony Cornman
of ABT, DeFuniak Springs,;
City Marshall Mike Adkin-
son, Jr., Sergeant Jimmy
Fannin of Walton County
Sheriffs Department Beach
Patrol, Robert Smith the
Superintendent of ORDC
(DJJ) in Okaloosa, Daniel
Bears of DJJ and Matthew
Christ SADD(Student
Against Destructive Deci-
sions) member from South
Walton High School.
When asked what was the
most prevalent drug abused
by youth in Walton County,
Cornman said, "Many peo-
ple don't consider alcohol
a drug. Alcohol is a drug.
Alcohol is the most abused
drug of all."
Bears said, "Alcohol is
consistently found to be
the winked at drug and we
find that many underage
drinkers are turned over to
their parents when they are
caught."
When asked where youth

child's friend rather than
being a parent.
Children don't need an-
other friend. They need the
guidance of a parent."
Smith said, "We as adults
have a responsibility to be
good role models. We all
need to set a good example
for our children."
Fannin added, "Know
where your kids are at and
what they are doing and
let them know that you are
checking up on them."
All panelists agreed that'
preventing underage drink-
ing in our community starts
within the family. The com-
munity partners with infor-
mation booths at the event
were the Walton County

Self-Therapy for the Stut-
terer is the classic self-help
guide by the founder of The
Stuttering Foundation, Mal-
colm Fraser. It is written
to and for the many adults
and teens who stutter. The
192-page book is available
at the Walton County Li-
brary System in DeFuniak
Springs, Florida. A person
who stutters does not need
to surrender helplessly to
speech difficulty because
they can change the way
they talk.
A person can learn to com-
municate with ease rather
than with effort. There is no
quick and easy way to tackle
the problem, but with the


right approach, self-therapy
can be effective.
This book outlines a self-
therapy program which de-
scribes what the person who
stutters can do to tackle the
problem and work towards
better communication. It is
often used as a supplement
to speech therapy.
Writes Charles Van Rip-
er, Ph.D., about this book:
"There are always some
who stutter who are unable
to get professional help and
others who do not seem to be
able to profit from it. There
are some who prefer to be
their own therapist. In this
book, Malcolm Fraser has
provided guidance for those


who must help themselves.
"Knowing well from his
own experience as a stut-
terer the difficulties of self-
therapy, he outlines a series
of objectives and challenges
that should serve as a map
for the person who is lost in
the dismal swamp of stut-
tering and wants to find a
way out."
The book is available free
to all public libraries.

Teachers ponder current state of music education


By CHRIS MANSON

The National Association
for Music Education has just
finished celebrating March
as Music in Our Schools
Month. The organization's
primary focus is on the ad-
vancement of music educa-
tion. Locally, schools are ex-
posing music to students in
ways that are beneficial and
fun.
At Maude Saunders El-
ementary School, Cathy
Drake uses music to assist
students in reading, writ-
ing, math, social studies,
science, and physical edu-
cation. "I purposely choose
the songs that we do so they
have an application to one
of those content areas," she
said. "We teach songs that
go with each letter of the al-
phabet. We teach sigp lan-
guage to kindergarten stu-
dents through music. In fifth
grade, we sing a lot of songs
that are based on American
history."
Drake said FCAT affected
her scheduled events for the
month, but added, "We cel-


ebrate music in our school
every day."
Drake said each grade
level had its own personal-
ity. "After they get older, it
starts to show," she said.
"Our fifth grade sings very
well and is able to put
complicated movements to
the beat. Fourth grade's
strength is playing the re-
corder. We shall see how the
rest of them mature."
The younger students
enjoy rhythm instruments
with or without accompa-
niment, while the older
students' favorite* activity
is playing keyboards. "Stu-
dents have to use both of
their hands," said Drake.
"It is not a telephone. They
have to use more than one
finger."
The school's spring con-
certs are scheduled for next
month. On Tuesday, April
29, the kindergarten, sec-
ond, and fourth grades will
perform, followed by the
first, third, and fifth grades
on May 1. For the fourth-
and fifth-grade programs,
students competed for the


opportunity to conduct dur-
ing the concerts.
This year, Drake's stu-
dents are honoring Harvey
and Lorna Blankenship,
who donated a Yamaha key-
board to the Maude Saun-
ders music department.
Cecile Lindegren, Walton
Middle School's choral di-
rector, did not have any big
events this month, but her
seventh-grade girls ensem-
ble performed at February's
Chautauqua Festival. She
and her students are cur-
rently preparing for festival
and performance events for
the school district coming
up in April.
Lindegren teaches four
small ensemble classes con-
sisting of about 22 students
each. "I always traditionally
had large choruses," she
said. "We're hoping we have
bigger classes next year."

About the current state of
music education, Lindegren
said all students deserved
the opportunity to learn
music reading and listen-
ing skills. "I certainly worry

when so many requirements
take precedence, because I
think every student should
explore music and art," she


said. "We're still hanging in
there."
"We try not to let it get
squeezed out," said Drake.


"We try to give (students) a
lot of experience. It's tough,
but we try to fit as much in
there as we can."

school, and church activities
and organizations in De-
Funiak Springs and Walton
County for many years.

Harrison has served on
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council for 10 years. "Dur-
ing my tenure on the coun-
cil, I asked for the citizens'
support to bring optimism
and pride back to our com-
munity. I feel that we have
accomplished that to a large
extent, but I believe that we
still can improve our em-
phasis on bringing new busi-
nesses that provide quality
jobs to our area, as well as
expand existing businesses,"
Harrison said.
"We need to work''with
the county, the school sys-


N FROM FRONT

tem, and other local organi-
zations to take advantage of
the beauty and improve on
the excellent infrastructure
that we have. That infra-
structure consists of easy
access to I-10, Highway 90,
Highway 331, and the rail-
road. Not many communi-
ties have all those advan-
tages."
A graduate of Walton
High School, Harrison re-
ceived bachelor's and mas-
ter's degrees from Universi-
ty of Florida, and is retired
from a 34-year career as a
physical scientist in the Air
Force Research Laboratory
at Eglin Air Force Base. He is
the son of Oscar and Minnie
Laird Harrison, also long-
time residents of DeFuniak


Springs. He has been mar-
ried to Lesa Thomason Har-
rison, a former fifth-grade
teacher at Maude Saun-
ders Elementary School, for
38 years. They have three
children, all graduates of
Walton High School. Reid
is an associate professor of
electrical engineering at
University of Utah; Deanna
is a teaching and learning
consultant for Promethean,
Inc., based in Walton Coun-
ty; and Neil teaches at First
Academy in Orlando and is
attending seminary.
Harrison has served
on the Northwest Florida
League of Cities Board of
Directors for the past four
years, also serving as presi-
dent of that organization
last year. This year he was
selected Municipal Official
of the Year for the area that
includes 54 cities in the


Panhandle. Harrison states,
"It has been a real honor to
be elected to those positions,
but the real importance is
being able to bring other
ideas to DeFuniak Springs.
I've learned much about
grants, supporting new
growth, and developing our
infrastructure to support
that new growth." One of the
things that Harrison says is
most significant is the work-
ing relationship that the
City Council 'has with the
excellent staff in the city.
"We have brought together
a staff of truly professional
people that serves the citi-
zens of DeFuniak Springs."
Harrison said, "It's an
exciting time to live in De-
Funiak Springs." Some ex-
amples of the growth in De-
Funiak Springs are the new
Comfort Inn and Suites near
the Microspine building, the


new Lowe's, the renovated
old Wal-Mart building, the
new BankTrust building, a
new carwash and laundra-
mat, the dialysis center, on
West Hwy. 90, a new fire
truck renovation plant to be
built east of Magnolia Cem-
etery, and two new housing
developments on Walton
Road. Add to this the almost
total occupancy of the down-
town area and you've got a
community that is growing
despite the nationwide eco-
nomic downturn."
Harrison also emphasiz-
es that the upgrade of the
Lakeyard with new play-
ground equipment and the
fishing piers, the renova-
tion of Harbeson Field, and
the improvements to the
Chautauqua building have
added to the beauty and
recreation opportunities to
our city. Cooperative agree-


ments with the county have
also resulted in a new Boys
and Girls Club in the old ar-
mory building and a senior
citizens center on College
Avenue.
Harrison said that he
would appreciate the oppor-
tunity to serve the citizens
of DeFuniak Springs during
the next term, and to work
with the existing council
and the county to continue
the unity they have seen re-
cently.

"We need to keep the em-
phasis on providing our citi-
zens with the basic services
such as good streets, reliable
utilities, and orderly growth
that they have a right to
expect. I think we're mak-
ing advances in those areas,
but there is still much to be
done to keep us on the right
track," Harrison said.

dent and past director of the


COOPER

race, I believe what puts me
above the rest is my local
experience and the service
I have provided to this com-
munity and the department.
During my tenure I have
faithfully served the citi-
zens of the county without
prejudice, and will continue
to do so. We will provide
new ideas and increase the
quality of law-enforcement
service to the citizens of the
county through a team con-
cept. The office of the sheriff
is a powerful position within
the government. It demands
someone with strong char-
acter who will afford the
dedicated and professional
employees of the sheriffs of-
fice proven leadership; one
not afraid to be on the front
line with those he sends
there; a responsive leader
with values and vision and
someone who supports the
staff he employs. If elected,
I will be accessible, commu-
nicate, and always perform
in the best interest for the
citizens of Walton County."
Cooper has many plans
for the office and his priori-
ties include: "Clearly defin-
ing the expectations of the
organization's mission, es-
tablishing an accountable
and responsible finance de-
partment, and opening com-
munication lines with the
community will be of utmost
importance," he says.
Cooper's goals include law
enforcement accreditation to
standardize the mission of
the office. This will assist in
providing across-the-board
consistency and profession-
alism for the operation as a
whole; enhancing the train-
ing program to provide all
staff with the most current
procedures and practices to
ensure they have the neces-


RELIEF FR
fields supplying water to the
Freeport area and the area
south of the bay are located
in the vicinity.
"This is an issue that
all of Walton County has a
vested interest in this being
protected, she said.
West requested a mora-
torium on approval of any
new pits "until we can get a
handle on this."

The county is now re-
viewing the Azland Mining
proposal. If approved, this
pit would go into operation
on a 270-acre site on Ed
Brownfield Road, less than
half a mile from residential
property on Rock Hill Road.
Under relatively new
county procedures set up
by a comprehensive plan
amendment, as a "special
exception" on agriculturally-
zoned property, the proposal
will undergo consideration
by the Walton County Board
of Adjustments rather than
going before the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion and the BCC.
Rock Hill Road resident
Frank Jackson urged the
commissioners to rescind
the amendment that had set
up the special exception pro-
cedure to allow borrow pits
on agricultural property.
Mark Madamba, another
area resident, agreed. Mad-
amba said that for property
owners who want to sell fill
dirt and sand, "That rule
has really opened the flood-
gates."
It was Madamba's opinion
that the special exception
amendment was incorrect
in not distinguishing func-
tions that are acceptable in
an agricultural setting from
commercial-type pit opera-
tions.
He contrasted the "ac-
ceptable" function of a farm-
er digging and transferring


dirt to another part of his
property creating a pond
- with commercial opera-
tions that remove and sell
dirt from a property to the
public. "Some folks live very
close to those areas," he said
of the commercial pit opera-
tions, "it's certainly disturb-
ing."
Madamba noted that, al-
though residential develop-
ment in the area is restrict-
ed to one unit per five acres,
this is a growing commu-
nity, with over 14 residen-

sary skills to perform their
job safely and effectively,
and to create a community
service division that brings
the office to the people. This
will include establishing of-
fice hours in the Paxton,
Freeport, and Santa Rosa
Beach sub-stations and will
strengthen the open-door
policy.
Cooper also said that em-
ployee assistance and career
development programs will
be added. These programs
are designed to assist the
employee, and outline clear
training objectives that
must be met to advance
within the ranks.
Cooper said he would
work mutually with all'law
enforcement and emergency
service providers to establish
the best practices and poli-
cies with regards to inves-
tigations, emergency plan-
ning, emergency response,
and communications while
remaining fiscally respon-
sible.
Tom began his career
with Walton County Sher-
iffs Department in 1987
as a communication officer
at the Santa Rosa Beach
Sub-Station and shortly
thereafter moved into the
patrol division. In 1995, he
was promoted to sergeant
and was chosen to head the
Beach Patrol unit in 1997.
After resigning in 1998, Tom
returned in 2000 to com-
mand the Sheriffs Depart-
ment Reserve Unit, which
consisted of a maximum of
10 officers. He served on the
South Walton Fire District
Board of Commissioners
from 2000-2006, including
two years as vice chairman;
was the first chairperson
for Crime Stoppers of Wal-
ton County, past vice presi-


Sandestin Lions Club.
Tom is currently the di-
rector of security for the
Sandestin Owners Associa-
tion. In this position, he is
responsible for administer-
ing the daily operation of
a 40-person staff, a size-
able operational budget,
and the safety and protec-
tion of a community of over
4,500 residences, numer-
ous commercial operations,
and thousands of visitors.
"Sandestin Owners Associa-
tion is unique. By nature of
its size, design and statu-
tory requirements for Ho-
meowner Associations, we
operate very similar to that
of a municipality or other
governmental entity. This
has given me very valuable
experience." said Cooper.
Tom is a 1982 graduate
of South Dade High School
in Homestead, Florida. He
graduated from Miami Dade
Community College in 1986
with an A.S. in criminal jus-
tice, and pursued further
criminal justice education at
the University of West Flor-
ida. He received his formal
law enforcement training at
Southeast Florida Institute
of Criminal Justice, where
he graduated with honors.
Tom has numerous hours of
additional law enforcement,
management, finance, and
emergency management
training and is a licensed
community association
manager. He is married and
resides in Santa Rosa Beach
with wife, Christine, and is
Methodist by faith.
"Communication is a
leadership imperative," said
Cooper. "If the citizens of the
county will believe in me,
support me and vote for me,
I will provide the leadership
necessary for, an office that
will be open, available, and
responsive to the needs of
Walton County."

tial building permits having
been issued over the past
several years.
Are the commercial pit
sites on Rock Hill Road bor-
row pits, or are they min-
ing operations? Anita Page,
speaking as a county citizen,
raised this question.
' Page reported that the
Northwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District
(NWFWMD) has recently
acquired some regulatory
authority over these types
of uses, and that, if dirt or
sand is removed from a site,
the NWFWMD considers it
a mine, not a borrow pit.
Page also commented that
the Walton County Com-
prehensive Plan adopted in
1997 set policies for mining,
including buffer zones and
reclamation requirements.
The county failed to imple-
ment those policies in its
land development code, she
explained, calling for this
omission to be rectified.
"What is happening out
there (in the Rock Hill Road
area) is mines," Eileen West
asserted. She observed that
the terms "borrow pit" and
"mine" have been used in-
terchangeably, but that
mining is not an allowable
use in the agricultural land'
use category.
Pat Blackshear, coun-
ty planning and develop-
ment services director, said
she shares the concerns
of the Rock Hill Road area
residents."We are dealing
with a problem now," Black-
shear said.
It was her opinion that ex-
isting uses with these types
of operations are the major
problem. New uses such
as the current application
would be required to oper-
ate in harmony with neigh-
boring residential uses and
implement measures to pro-
tect the environment, Black-
shear stated. "The problem
I see is with these existing
pits with violations," she
said.
"We are equally con-
cerned with anything new,"
Madamba responded.
"Let's look at strengthen-
ing our process," Blackshear
recommended.
She revealed that one ex-
isting borrow pit has been
charged with violations by
the county which will be
heard by the Walton County
Code Enforcement Board at


its April 17 meeting.
It was Blackshear's opin-
ion that the county's defi-
nitions of borrow pits and
mining operations should be
brought into line with those
used by the NWFWMD,
since that agency would be
exerting its jurisdiction over
these uses.
"This is a multi-step solu-
tion," said District 1 Com-
missioner Scott Brannon.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows directed
the. planning staff to iden-
tify. existing sites of this
nature, determine which
are grandfathered, which
are abandoned, and which
are operating in violation.
She called for investigation
whether these land uses are
appropriate in agricultural
land use classifications.
She spoke against the
county grandfathering any
borrow pit or mine that is
in violation status with' the
state. "Do we want to ap-
prove mining in general
agriculture?" Meadows also
questioned.
Rather than imposing a
moratorium on the approval
of borrow pits as special ex-
ceptions, county legal coun-
sel Mike Burke recommend-
ed directing staff to insure
best management practice
(BMP) standards in review-
ing applications for these
exceptions.
County Commission
Chairman Larry Jones was
in agreement, adding that
the BCC would like to see
what those standards are.
"That's issue number one,"
he said.
A motion by District 2
Commissioner Ken Prigden
to do the latter was ap-
proved by unanimous vote.
The BCC also voted unani-
mously to identify existing
borrow pit and/or mining
operations, to set criteria
on their operation, and es-
tablish a process for these
businesses to correct any
violations and be certified
for compliance.

At the urging of District
4 Commissioner Sara Co-
mander, the BCC also di-
rected engineering staff to
research safety issues re-
lated to the reported 100 or
more truckloads of fill mate-
rial and sand being trans-
ported daily from the Rock
Hill Road area.

Choctawhatchee River Soil and


Water Conservation District


2007 ANNUAL REPORT
The Choctawhatchee River Soil and Water Conservation District, which
covers Walton County, Florida had another successful year in 2007 through
the conservation of our soil, water and renewable resources.
The conservation district was organized in March 1940 under the authority
created by the Soil Conservation Act passed by the Florida Legislature in
1937. It was formed for the purpose of providing an organized procedure for
assisting farmers and land users with problems related to soil and water con-
servation. The conservation district is a subdivision of state government with
a governing board of five locally elected supervisors.
Technical service is provided to the District by the United States
Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service. The
conservation district has an agreement with the USDA whereby the Natural
Resources Conservation Service provides technical information and profes-
sional personnel to assist it in carrying out and maintaining soil and water
conservation measures on properties within their county boundaries.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS
The following are some of the District's accomplishments and activities
during FY 2007:
Resource Management Systems 9,979 acres planned; 10,759 acres
applied.
Acres of Wildlife Benefited 8,096
Number of practices applied 222
Environmental Quality Incentive Program 47 applicants serviced with
45 contracts approved totaling $416,266
Number of units of government assisted 22
Total landowners assisted 2,972
Fiscal year 2007 was the eleventh year of the nationwide conservation pro-
gram known as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. This pro-
gram combined the functions of the Agricultural Conservation Program,
Water Quality Incentive Program and the Colorado River Basin Salinity
Program. To date there are a total of 197 EQIP contracts in Walton County.
The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program
for landowners who want to develop and improve wildlife habitats on pri-
vate land. Through WHIP, USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service
provides both technical assistance and up to 50% cost-share assistance to
establish and improve wildlife habitats. WHIP agreements between NRCS
and the participant generally last from 5 to 10 years from the date the agree-
ment is signed.
Our project for the district in 2007, along with help from Florida Three
Rivers RC&D, provided financial and technical assistance to the Muscogee
Nation of Florida in Bruce, Florida. The first phase of this project was the
restoration of a cypress pond that dried up due to sedimentation.and the
natural water flow being diverted by road construction years earlier. The
perimeter of the pond was overgrown with Chinese Tallow, Japanese Privet
and other upland species. The first phase also consisted of repairing an exist-
ing well. The well will be used to supply irrigation for landscaping with
native plants in the second phase of this project scheduled for 2008.
In addition to the program work the conservation district has available for
sale the following resource materials: The Walton County Soil Survey CD,
USGS Topographical maps for Walton County and Walton County Plat
books.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
The conservation district would like to acknowledge the support and assis-
tance from the following agencies, groups and individuals that aided us in
implementing our programs:
The Walton County Commission supports the conservation district by pro-
viding a conservation technician and administrative assistant for the district
office.

nel to assist the land users of Walton County.

conservation news.
The Choctawhatchee River Soil and Water Conservation District is con-
tinuously striving to better serve the land users of Walton County. Assistance
through the District is available at no charge and regardless of race, color,
national origin, sex, religion, age, disability or marital status.
It is the ultimate goal of the conservation district that a complete soil and
water conservation plan become established and maintained on every farm,
ranch and watershed in Walton County.

Marse said that there were
two dirt roads on the west
side of Old Jolly Bay Road
that are in very rough condi-
tion. He said the homeown-
ers are supposed to main-
tain the roads but he does
not think they could do this
given the current conditions.
The problems are where the
sewer work was done. Peters
said that a final inspection
was scheduled and that defi-
ciencies would be corrected.
Marse reported that the
work on the Blount House is
nearly complete. He thinks
it will be finished in about
a week. Marse said that
the work on the park on the
point where Lafayette and
Four Mile Creeks meet is
making good progress. The
pilings and bulkhead on the
Four Mile Creek side are
in place. The docks on the
Lafayette Creek side are
looking good. Marse also
said that the agreement
with the Department of Cor-
rections for a prisoner work
crew has been finalized. He
expects- the work crew to be
started in about a week.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
said she has received two
bids for sod, one from Thom-
as Hicks, a local supplier,
and one from Creekwater
Sod of Alabama. The two

bids are exactly the same.
She asked for guidance on
how to proceed. Adkinson
advised the Council that
they only had to choose the
bidder. The Council selected
the bid of Thomas Hicks.
Marse reported that the
owner of the Dixie Dandy
property has asked if the
city would be interested in.
purchasing the site. The
Council authorized Marse
to pursue the matter and
see what price would be re-
quired.
Marse pointed out that
the county maintains the
DeFuniak Springs Library
but does not do the same
for Freeport. He said that
if the county wants to be in
the library business in Free-
port they should step up to
the plate and do some of the
work that needs to be done.
Marse said the library clien-
tele is growing steadily. The
Council authorized Marse
to go to the county and work
on the problem.
Marse said that at a re-
cent Economic Development
Council (EDC) meeting he
learned that the street for
one piece of property at the
Industrial Park has not
been developed. The prop-
erty is about 1,000 feet long.
He said that if the EDC


would give Freeport a piece
of property with several lots
in the Industrial Park then
the city might agree to pave
the street and install water
and sewer piping along the
right-of-way. The Council
authorized Marse to pursue
this matter.
Haynes said the city is
having a lot of problems
with delinquent water bill
collections. The outstand-
ing amount due is between
$12,000 and $14,000. A
workshop was scheduled for
Monday, April 7 to discuss
the problem. At Haynes re-
quest, another workshop for
personnel policy was sched-
uled for April 23.

Fire Chief Ben Greenslat
asked the Council for per-
mission to go forward with
a FEMA firefighters' assis-
tance grant. The request
will ask for $481,000 to be
used for equipment, person-
nel protective equipment,
training programs and oth-
er material. The city would
have to furnish $25,000. in
matching funds. He said
most of the work on the re-
quest has already been done
but he has not yet talked to
the grant coordinator. The
Council approved the re-
quest.

Park "Under

WALTON COUNTY Commissioner Scott Brannon inspects new board walk and landing
under construction at the new Morrison Springs park.

er at the newly named boat landing sign. From left to right (back row): Commissioner

Boat landing named


for Thomas Pilcher


Staff reports .
A boat landing on the
causeway of the Clyde B.
Wells (U.S. 331) Bridge has
been dedicated to the late
Thomas Pilcher. His family
gathered for photographs
recently at the landing in
front of the new county sign
identifying the location.
Thomas Pilcher was a
retired conservation officer
who patrolled the Choctaw-
hatchee Bay extensively
throughout his 25 year'
career in the Marine Pa-
trol. County officials credit
Pilcher with having the
landing built by the state
when his marine patrol boat
was too large to put into the
water at the bridge with the
existing landings. Pilcher
requested a new landing
which he and many Walton
County citizens have used
for many years.
"It's fitting that we name
the boat landing after Mr.
Pilcher," said District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander,
vice chair of the board who

also joined Pilcher's family
as they gathered Thursday
around the new sign. "He
did so much to protect our
citizens for so many years
on the waters of the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay, and it's
because of him that so many
people can enjoy our beau-
tiful waters through this
landing now named after
him," she says.


"Our community will miss
Mr. Pilcher," said District 1
Commissioner Scott Bran-
non, "but we won't forget
him. My hope is that this
sign will be a permanent
reminder of the wonderful
service Mr. Pilcher provided
to all Walton County citi-
zens during the 25 years he
spent protecting us on these
waters."


Morrison Springs is tem-
porarily closed for construc-
tion of a new park which will
soon include boardwalks,
educational pavilions, park-
ing areas and landings for
divers. Morrison Springs
has been a nationally rec-
ognized and popular diving
location for decades just out-
side the small town of Ponce
de Leon, Florida, but just
inside the Walton County
boundary line.
The state acquired Mor-
rison Springs from private
owners just over two years
ago, and Walton County is
managing the property in
cooperation with the state.
Construction of the $1.3
million park project started
in January, and county of-
ficials expect the new park
to be complete and open this
summer.
"We're excited to see this
project underway," said Dis-
trict 1 County Commission-
er Scott Brannon. "Some of

Arnie Hfart juried student




exhibition hefdat OWC


By JEFFREY POWELL
Arnie Hart was an art
instructor for more than 30
years at the institution now
known as
Okaloosa-Walton College
(OWC). When Hart first
went to work there in 1966,
it was Okaloosa-Walton
Junior College and later
Okaloosa-Walton Commu-
nity College. Unfortunately,
Hart passed away all too
soon in 1999. In an effort to
keep Hart's legacy alive his
widow, Jean Hart, has cho-
sen to underwrite the Arnie


Hart Juried Student Art Ex-
hibition.
"The students and their
art work were always so im-
portant to Arnie," said Jean
of the DeFuniak Springs
native. "He wanted his stu-
dents to find the same fasci-
nation, the same challenge,
the same enjoyment. That's
why sponsoring the student
art show in his name is im-
portant. It keeps the connec-
tion alive."
The student exhibition
is on display from now until
April 17 at the Mattie Kelly


Arts Center's Mcllroy Gal-
lery. An OWC Arts Center
Faculty Exhibition is also
being held in the Holzhauer
Gallery. The student art
work was judged by Dr. Gle-
ny Beach, who has a doctor-
ate in art education.
Exhibition winners were
Dara North, best in show,
Lynette A. Miesen, first
place 2-D, and Anita Hester,
first place 3-D.
"Arnie made everyone feel
at ease and that may have
been part of his success as
a teacher," said OWC Presi-


dent Bob Richburg. "Mrs.
Hart's contribution elevates
the student exhibition to a
new level and gives our col-
lege a time to remember a
special instructor and
person."
Hart gained much artistic
acclaim for his "cracked pot-
tery" style of ceramic work.
"Arnie Hart was definitely
special and this student ex-
hibition will have him smil-
ing for sure," said Director
of Humanities Fine Arts De-
partment Dr. Cliff Herron.

Center is located at 100 Col-
lege Blvd. in Niceville, and

main theater,

ApriI7

Discover a nearly invis-
ible world that scientists
didn't know existed 30 years
ago but is now thought to
have implications for ev-
erything from the origins
of life on earth, to medical
research and the search
for life in other parts of the
galaxy. Dr. Julie Huber,
a distinguished oceanog-
rapher, will present a free
public lecture on the teem-
ing life forms of deep sea
vents on Monday, April 7, at
7:30 p.m., in the main stage
theater of the Mattie Kelly
Arts Center on the Okaloo-
sa-Walton College Niceville
campus. Huber's engaging
public lecture at OWC will
bring these fascinating com-
munities to life for the gen-
eral public, college and high
school students.
Huber is part of a nation-
al distinguished lecturer
series sponsored by the Na-
tional Science Foundation
that brings oceanographic.
researchers to colleges for
both public and scientific
events in order to help at-
tract future students into
ocean science studies and to
increase public understand-
ing of important ocean re-
search.
Huber's public presenta-
tion at OWC is hosted by
the college's Mattie M. Kelly
Cultural and .Environmen-
tal Institute. She will also
present a scientific lecture
on April 8 at noon in Pen-
sacola at the University of
West Florida in the Com-
mons Auditorium.
Huber's public talk at
OWC on April 7 will cen- *
ter on "Pushing the Limits
Microbial Life at Deep
Sea Hydrothermal Vents."
Scientific research on the
"extreme life" communi-
ties at deep sea vents has
exploded since their discov-
ery in 1977.The deep-sea
is one of the least explored
parts of the microbial world,
and until only 30 years ago,
scientists believed that be-
cause it was devoid of sun-
light and plants, there was
no life there. The discovery
of thriving animal and mi-
crobial communities in the
deep seas near the Gala-
pagos in 1977 changed our
fundamental perceptions of
life on planet Earth. These
organisms encounter many
conditions that humans
consider too extreme- too
hot, too toxic, too little oxy-
gen- but microbes seem to
find a way and continue to
push the limits of life. Many
scientists are studying the
teeming life at deep-sea hy-
drothermal vents as life on
earth may have originated
and evolved near hydrother-
mal systems and organisms
living in these extreme con-
ditions today may be like
those in similar habitats
early in earth's history. In
addition, microbes unique
to the hydrothermal vents
could have implications for
modern medicine or even
* how life may have been pos-
sible on Mars or the moons
of Jupiter, which each have
an ancient water history.
After years spent with
her face pressed against the
glass of the shark tank at
Chicago's Shedd Aquarium,
Huber knew from a very

young age that she wanted
to spend her life studying
the sea. She left the land-
locked Midwest and re-
ceived a bachelor's degree in
marine science and a minor
in chemistry from Eckerd
College and a PhD in biolog-
ical oceanography and cer-
tificate in astrobiology from
the University of Washing-
ton. After her postdoctoral
research as a NASA Astro-
biology Institute Fellow at
the Marine Biological Labo-
ratory, she joined the facul-
ty as an assistant scientist
at the MBL, in Woods Hole,
MA., where she currently
resides.
She has logged many
research cruises studying


the subsea floor microbial
populations at hydrother-
mal vents around the Pa-
cific Ocean, including the
Juan de Fuca Ridge off the
coast of Oregon and Wash-
ington, around Hawaii, and
along the Mariana Arc in
the western Pacific. One of
the unexpected results of all
her time at sea was finding
a husband, a deep-sea ocean
engineer and submersible
pilot whose skills certainly
come in handy when it is
time to design new and cre-
ative ways for sampling in
the deep-sea. Away from
work, Huber enjoys spend-
ing time with her family,
sailing, and watching the
Discovery Channel.

Ask Auntie Em

Dear Auntie Em,
It's already starting to get on my nerves politics, that is. My phone keeps ringing
from prerecorded calls, the television commercials with the mud-slinging and even
our local races are starting to get rifled with rumors. This will be the first year I have
been old enough to vote and I am already disenchanted with politics. How do you know
who's telling the truth and how do you know who to vote for with all the information
and disinformation flying around. No wonder many people don't even go out to vote
anymore. Is it even worth it?
Disenchanted in DeFuniak,
(Name and address withheld on request.)
Dear Disenchanted,
You are not alone, honey, and we all still have a ways to go before elections. Voting
is a lot like choosing friends. You have to'take your time and really make sure you are
compatible with the person you choose to vote for and they encompass the ideas that
you hold dear, as well.
How can you do that? Well, first off, in the larger campaigns look at voting records
and if those are absent or do not yield enough information, then read. And I mean
read everything you can get your hands on from both sides of the political fence. An
informed voter is a satisfied voter.
Locally, ask to speak with the candidates. If someone will not meet with you to
discuss your concerns, they are not serious about holding office or representing your
interest. And finally, prepare for the long haul. You might have those that try to sway
you, but many men and women have fought in the past and continue to do so today for
your right to vote, so don't waste it and don't be afraid to ask questions.
I leave you with the following quote from Charles de Gaulle, "I have come to the
conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians." God bless
and good hunting, young voter.

series of fake identities, unfortunate winner. "Well,
complete with false I.D., this is the system beating


of sin:


you."
Next thing we know,
Ben is gambling until
dawn, drinking hard liquor
(at M.I.T. it was wings and
beer at the pub with his
nerdy buddies), partying at
strip clubs, and lying to his
mother. His absences from
class .and missed
assignments are "handled"
by Rosa, who is reaping 50
percent of his students'
nightly take and wants to
ride the gravy train as long
as possible. Ben stays in,
way past his intended goal,
trapped between Rosa's
rock and Cole's hard place.
This film is based on an
actual incident (and non-
fiction book), so you may
know how it plays out. I
can't believe the real story
ended this way, but I will
have to read the book to
find out.


"21"


The actors are all good,
especially veterans Spacey
and Fishburne, who can
make even mediocre
dialogue sound fun to
speak. Sturgess and Kate
Bosworth (as his colleague
and love interest) look
comfortable in their
characters, though M.I.T.
geeks probably aren't this
photogenic. And there's
plenty of footage of Vegas -
gleaming limos, rooftop
raves, and all that
surrealistic casino
architecture.
"21" is about seduction,


losing one's values (and
one's way) to the world, the
flesh, and the Devil. If
Vegas didn't already exist
as a metaphor for all three,
someone would have
invented it. The richer and
better-dressed Ben and his
pals get, the worse they are.
The moral tale is somewhat
spoiled by the neatly-
contrived ending, which is
based more on retribution
than justice. Still, I didn't
ask for my money back. Nor
will you, especially if
Laurence Fishburne is
guarding the cash.

Happy New Year

BY KEN KIRCHHEVEL


Real food that satisfies

BY REV. DR. CHARLES SATTERWHITE, PASTOR


April 6 is the Biblical
New Year, the month the
"Children of Israel" went
out of Egypt, from slav-
ery to Pharoah to serve
their God in "the Promised
land."
On the Hebrew Calen-
dar, it is Nissan I, but the
month is called Aviv in the
Bible.
In the 12 chapter of the
book of Exodus, in the sec-
ond verse, we read; "This
month shall be unto you
the beginning of months; It
shall be the first month of
the year to you."
Christ died on Passover
and rose from the Dead
on Bikborim or "firstfruits,"
both days God commanded
the people of Israel to ob-
serve every year. They are


both recorded in the 23rd
chapter of Leviticus.
I asked a friend once the
question, "If God's watch,
and our watch had different
time, who's watch would he
go by?"
Their answer was, 'by
his watch." I .believe we
should also set our watch
by his watch, and our cal-
endar by his calendar.
God said, "This month
shall be to you ...the begin-
ning of months; It shall be
the first month of the year
to you." "Ex 12:2.

We should celebrate it
as God's New Year, and
so I wish you all a Happy
New Year, and a greater
freedom to serve God than
ever before.


New Harmony to host revival
April 6 with Barret Glover


New Harmony Baptist
Church will be having re-
vival services starting April
6, Sunday evening through
April 9, Wednesday with
Bro. Barret Glover preach-
ing the word of God.
Services on Sunday will


begin at 6 p.m. and on
Monday through Wednes-
day services will begin at 7
p.m.
Come and enjoy the sing-
ing and the preaching of
God's word. Everyone is
welcome.


And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger,
and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
John 6:35
All of us get hungry, but not all of us know why. Most often, our body says, "I need food"
when glycogen (carbohydrate) levels in the liver and muscles decrease and energy stores
are depleted. That's "actual" hunger.
Perceived" hunger is when digestion empties the stomach of its last filling and mild
cramps (hunger pangs) ensue as the stomach shrinks.
Everyone knows what it's like to be spiritually and emotionally hungry as well.
We may be hungry for comfort or thirsty for love, hungry for forgiveness or thirsty for
true love. It takes a certain level of spiritual and emotional nutrition for us to meet those
hunger and thirst needs that are common to the human experience.
Having those needs met outside of God's provision is like eating a doughnut for break-
fast: a. quick fix that will shortly disappoint. God's provision for every spiritual need in the
human race is Jesus Christ and His indwelling Spirit. He invites us to come to Him so we
will never hunger or thirst again.
If you've been skipping spiritual meals lately, you may feel hungry--or famished. Don't
settle for anything less than the Bread of Life.
It is a sure mark of grace to desire more. Robert Murray M'Cheyne


REV. DR. SATTERWHITE


Some appointments Christ makes with us

By DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


Before He went to the
cross, the Christ of God made
several appointments with
His followers. As His follow-
ers now we have those same
appointments to keep. Re-
member the Scriptures say
in Matthew 28:16, "where
Jesus had appointed them."
Jesus make appointments
still and is always true to
them.
He makes appointments
with us on Mount Calvary.
He will meet all who come
to Him at the cross. People
must wend their way out to
that "green hill far away" if
they would meet Christ and
be saved. No person has ever
met Him in vain.
Jesus makes appoint-


ments with us at His tem-
ple. He said, "Where two or
three are gathered together
in My name, there am I in
the midst of them." The
question is will you keep
your appointment with Je-
sus. Never fail to meet Him
at church.
Christ has an appoint-
ment with us in our prayer-
closet. Do we keep our ap-
pointment with Him? He
is always there when we
go to prayer. We too need
to "Come ye apart a little
while and rest." At the time
you spend in prayer, there
you can meet Him in the
quiet hour. 0, how swbet to
have meetings with Christ
in prayer!


Christ has an appoint-
ment with each of us in
the valley of the shadow of
death. His presence with us
is what takes the sting out
of death. Death is a peace-
ful walk, for He is with us
as we go through the valley
of the shadow. It is not the
death of the lost, for it is
only the "shadow of death."
He keeps His appointments
with us in.that valley.

Jesus has an appoint-
ment with us in our heaven-
ly home, if we have believed
in Him with a true and re-
pentant heart. He who can-
not lie said He would come
again and receive us unto
Himself, that where -He


DR. ROBERTM. JAYE

would be, there we would
be also. I believe that, don't
you?

Thank You

The children of Tuppie L. Rushing wish to greatfully
acknowledge your care and concern during our time of
sadness. Thank you for the many visits, calls, cards, food,
prayers, hugs and thoughts you've given us. So many of
you giving so much made it possible for us to carry on. Our
daddy will be missed and remembered by all whose lives
he touched. God bless.


Thank You

As Allan and I walked our dogs in the lakeyard recently.
we talked about how fortunate we were to live in a town
with such beauty. The azaleas were in full bloom, and we
thought we'd never seen a more perfect spring. But the
physical beauty we admired can't compare with the beauti-
ful and generous nature of the people here. Our family has
been comforted by such kindness, compassion, and caring
in the midst of our sorrow.
The food so lovingly prepared, the. glorious floral ar-
rangement, the beautiful plants, and most of all, the won-
derful tributes and memories you've shared with us, both
in person and in your letters, cards, and phone calls, are
something we'll never forget. And to the individuals in-
volved in the recovery efforts, please know how much we
appreciate your efforts, and for providing our family with
closure.
We truly are fortunate to live in such a beautiful place,
filled with such wonderful people. With your help, we're
able to bear the unbearable. Thank you so very much for
the love and generosity you've shown to our family during
this difficult time.
With our deepest thanks,
Dianne Ramey, and Jennifer and Ezzeldin Benghuzzi

Walton softball falls 9-7 in district game


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
stranded 12 runners on base
as the Pensacola Catholic
Crusaders defeated the host
school 9-7 in a District 1,
Class 3A contest.
The Braves were un-
able to take advantage of
several scoring opportuni-
ties as they left the bases
loaded twice while drawing
10 walks from inconsistent
Crusader pitching.
Pensacola Catholic put
two runs on the board in the
top of the first inning only
to see Walton tie the game


in the bottom of the inning
with a pair of their own.
The Braves got singles from
Layla Roberts and Faith
Kennemur despite hitting
into a double play to end the
inning.
Walton took a 3-2 lead in
the third inning as Shannon
Currie singled in Roberts to
give Walton the advantage
after three innings of play.
The lead did not last long
as the Crusaders plated
three runs in the top of the
fourth inning as a hit bat-
ter and three singles did
the damage. Clean-up hitter


Sunny Harris had a key sin-
gle among her three hits on
the day while driving in four
runs during the contest.
Walton (6-8) got one run
back in the bottom of the
fifth inning to cut the mar-
gin to 5-4, but left the bases
loaded as Shelbie Standland
struck out.
Pensacola Catholic (3-12)
padded their lead by scoring
three runs in the top of the
sixth inning as three singles
and two errors on Walton
made it an 8-4 contest. The
Crusaders added a run in
the seventh on a double by


M.C. Bell to up the margin
to 9-4.
The Braves did not go
quietly in their final at-
bat as the Braves plated
three runs as two walks, a
single and a triple by Rob-
erts cut the margin to 9-7.
Jewel Spence, the tying run,
grounded out to second base
to end the game and Wal-
ton's chance at a miracle
comeback as the Crusaders
improved to 2-3 in the dis-
trict while Walton fell to
1-4.
Bell got the win for the
Crusaders despite walk-


ing 10 while allowing eight
hits. Bell went the distance,
while throwing 149 pitches
in the complete game win.
Devin Richardson took the
loss for Walton as she gave
up 13 hits, but no walks,
while striking out seven.
Game Notes: Walton beat
Pensacola Catholic 11-2
in the first meeting of the
season in Pensacola. Am-
ber Ingram went 5-for-5 as
Pensacola Catholic's lead-
off hitter and scored four
runs. Kennemur and Rob-
erts had two hits apiece to
lead the Braves. Walton had


four fielding errors which
proved costly, though Cath-
olic committed three of their
own. Walton second base-
man Alex Infinger was hit
on the ankle by a pitch in
the fourth inning and had
to leave the game. Walton's
2-1 loss to South Walton on
Thursday drops their record
to 6-9 overall and 1-5 in dis-
trict play, meaning Walton
will face South Walton in
the opening .round of the
District 1, Class 3A tourna-
ment in a semi-final contest
at Pensacola Catholic on
April 15.

Walton earns 5-4 district win against South Walton


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton senior Sean Cart-
er struck out Billy Burnett
of the South Walton Sea-
hawks with the tying run
at third base as the Braves
claimed a 5-4 district win. -
Walton edged their dis-
trict and county foe by scor-
ing two runs in the top of
the seventh inning to take
a 5-3 lead. Shadler Roehm
led off with a double, then
scored on Issac Jackson's
bloop single with the bases
loaded to give Walton a 4-3
advantage. Colton Campbell
drew a bases loaded walk to


plate another run for the
Braves before South Walton
reliever Johnathan Duncan
could get the final out.
The Seahawks rallied in
their final at-bat as Dion
Jones singled in Jake Hawk-
ins with Jake Wright mov-
ing to third base on the hit
with two outs. Burnett was
unable to drive in the ty-
ing run when Carter fanned
him on three pitches to pre-
serve the road win for Wal-
ton (7-6).
Carter, who has signed to
play baseball at Okaloosa-
Walton College, threw 120


pitches in seven innings of
work to earn the complete
game win. He struck out six
batters while allowing eight
hits and two earned runs.
Carter also supplied a pair
of singles while reaching on
errors in two other plate ap-
pearances.

Colton Campbell drove in
three runs for Walton while
Issac Jackson scored two
runs for the Braves. Walton
recorded only seven hits,
but took advantage of four
errors by the Seahawks on
the night.


South Walton (7-9) scored
a single run in each of the
first three innings as the
Seahawks turned leadoff
doubles by Justin Moore and
Hunter Infinger into runs.
Walton scored a pair of
runs in the top of the second
inning without the ball leav-
ing the infield. The Braves
had runners reach base via
an error, a bunt single, a
botched fielder's choice, a
sacrifice and an RBI ground-
out as Walton coach Terry
Cadenhead put pressure on
the Seahawks defense by
manufacturing runs.


OWC hires Walker


By CHUCK HINSON
Burt Walker told report-
ers that his former team,
Chattanooga State Tech
Community College was a
great school, but there just
was not a lot of talent after
some of the top players in the
country would visit Florida
campuses. He further said
that it was their problem
now, since he is making his
move to Okaloosa-Walton


College.
Bart Walker has been
named the new women's
basketball coach at OWC af-
ter leading his former school
and Hiwassee, TN. College
to a combined three Elite 8
appearances in the national
tournament in the last eight
years.
Walker succeeds Brit-
tany Ezell, who went 57-28
in three seasons at OWC be-


fore stepping down to pur-
sue other opportunities.
Walker, 39, built a 98-20
record in four seasons at
Chattanooga State, leading
the team to one state tour-
nament championship and
two other state finals ap-
pearances. He also took Hi-
wassee to the tournament in
2003 and 2004.
His team at Chattanoo-
ga never won less than 21


games a season, and he has
said he intends to bring the
same standard of practice
and play to OWC.
The OWC Lady Raiders
have not won their confer-
ence or a state title since
1996, and they have only
sealed a state tournament
berth in the last five years.
OWC said there'were 20
to 25 applicants that had
applied for the position.


Gators fall to LSU, Noles beat Wake Forest


By CHUCK HINSON
The Bengal Tigers avoid-
ed a sweep by the Gators on
Sunday when in the second
of two games, Jared Brad-
ford took control on the
pitcher's mound and pitched"
a complete game to lead the
Tigers 6-3 over Florida. He
allowed nine hits and three
runs in nine innings for
LSU (16-10) and struck out
two and walked one.
He threw 80 of his 121


pitches for strikes.
Saturday afternoon's
game was all about the
Gators as Patrick Keating
pitched a complete game to
lead Forida (20-6) to a 7-1
win over the Tigers.
Matt Clark and Leon
Landry broke open the scor-
ing drive in the second in-
ning by putting two runs on
the scoreboard for Florida.
Clark homered again in the
eighth inning.


Cole Figueroa had two
Gator homeruns; Dustin
Bamberg and Ryan Schimpf
both had homeruns.
Tommy Toledo took the
loss for LSU on the mound
and pitched five innings,
allowing five hits and four
runs, striking out two.
Up in North Carolina,
the Seminoles were faced
with their own battle as they
were taking on ACC rival
Wake Forest. It came down


Dennis Guinn and his 11th
inning flyball to bring home
the winning run to seal the
victory.
Bo O'Dell earned the
win on the mound for the
Seminoles with 3 2/3 in-
nings of relief, by giving up
three hits and a walk. Brad
Kledzik took the loss for
Maryland by giving up an
unearned run on two hits
with two strikeouts and no
walks.


Hamlin gets win at Martinsville


By CHUCK HINSON
Denny Hamlin held on
and crossed the finish line in
first place for his first win at-
Martinsville, VA. This race
was about him and not try-
ing to beat any of the Hen-


drick's Racing Team at the
Goody's Cool Orange 500 in
Martinsville, VA.
;: The Hendrick's driving
team controlled and domi--
nated the track throughout
the day, but Hamlin upset


the standings. Instead of
pitting when many of those
in the top-spots opted to
take the pit stop, he broke
ahead in the 427th lap and
took the checkered flag for
his fourth career win.


Jeff Gordon and Jimmie
Johnson of the Hendrick's
team, combined to win eight
of the previous 10 races.
.Gordon finished second,
followed in third place by
Johnson and Tony Stewart.


2008 BASEBALL

STANDINGS


The game was tied at 3-3
after three innings and nei-
ther team could put runs
on the board over the next
three innings of play.

South Walton starter
Mitchell Peterson pitched
six innings while giving up
six hits and a walk earning
a no-decision in the game.
Walton left nine runners
on base while the Seahawks
had five that could not make
their way in to score.


Game Notes: South Wal-
ton is 0-5 in district'play
and will be the no. 4-seed
in the district tournament
at Pensacola Catholic next
month. Walton will likely be
a no. 2 or no. 3 seed as the
Braves split with Northview
and have one game left with
Pensacola Catholic after los-
ing the first meeting in Pen-
sacola. The Braves blasted
Laurel Hill on Friday 21-1
to improve to 8-6 on the sea-
son.

Perrilloux returns to Tigers


By CHUCK HINSON
LSU quarterback Ryan
Perrilloux is technically off
suspension for various team


rule infractions, but can-
not still dress out for spring
practice. Despite there being
no set time for Perrilloux to


report back to the practice
field, he still needs to learn
plays of the Tigers since he
will be taking on the reins of


the 2008 national champi-
onship team.
Head coach Les Miles
suspended him indefinitely


in February, shortly before
practices began, for unspec-
ified team violations, which
included missing class and

Fishing for spawning bass


By Jay Yelas
Among anglers, there is
perhaps no more controver-
sial topic than whether or
not, as conservationists, we
ought to fish for bass while
they are spawning. Battle
lines on this issue were
drawn in the sand long ago
- some northern laws that
prohibit it date back to the
1800s with no end to the
argument in sight.
Those against fishing for
bass during the spawn con-


tend that it disrupts the
breeding cycle, resulting
in fewer fish in the future.
However, studies indicate
that fishing during the
spawn, even if specifically
for trophies, does not ap-
pear to harm the bass popu-
lations. Obviously, taking
a spawn-ready female from
the bed will, if she dies, re-
duce the numbers of young
bass produced. But bass
produce thousands of spawn
every year, leaving the sur-


plus millions of juvenile fish
to become food for other spe-
cies so numbers aren't an
issue. Further research has
shown that if a big female
hasn't spawned yet and is
released in good shape, then
it is likely she will spawn.
Contrary to some beliefs,
a bedding bass is not easy to
catch, particularly the big
females. It is true that the
small males are often ag-
gressive in their guardian
duties, but the trophy fish


is very difficult to catch. To
catch fish during this time of
year, I use two methods, de-
pending on whether or not
the water is clear enough to
see the beds.
If the water is reasonably
clear, I look for hard-bot-
tomed coves, a place where
the bottom will be mostly
pea gravel and chunk rock.
Once there, I get on the deck
of my boat and watch for the
mostly round nests, areas
that have been cleared off
by bass fanning their tails.
Once I spot a nest, I either
look for a bass or its shadow.
Once I spot the fish be it
a small male or a large fe-
male I use my spinning
reel, spooled with 10-pound
Berkley Trilene 100% Fluo-
rocarbon line (especially if
the fish have already been
pressured) or a casting reel
spooled with 17- or 20-pound
100% Fluorocarbon, and
cast a white, Texas-rigged
Berkley PowerBait Flippin'
Tube, with the hook bare-
ly piercing the skin of the
bait.
I position my boat far
enough away from the nest
so as to not spook the bass,
but close enough that I can
still see what is going on.
After casting just beyond
the nest (if the fish hasn't
already gone for the bait), I
hop the tube into the nest,
working it through the


nest area searching for the
"sweet spot." The sweet spot
- for some unknown reason
- is an area of the nest that,
when a bait reaches it, will
cause the fish to attack. It
may take several minutes or
several hours to get the bass
to react, but when it does, it
will turn itself sideways and
scoop the bait off the bottom
in an effort to remove the
intruder from the nest not
always to eat it. Because the
hook is barely in the bait,
it will be easier to set the
hook.
If the first approach
doesn't work, a like to turn
to a dark colored Berkley
Gulp! Lizard and try the
same tactics. However, un-
like the white tube, the
dark lizard is harder to see
in the water. If the water is
too murky to see the nests,
try Carolina rigging in the
shallows. And if you're af-
ter smallmouth bass, look
for underwater cover to hold
bedding fish.
Fishing the spawn can be
fun, difficult and rewarding
all at the same time. Just be
sure to practice catch and
release so that other anglers
will have the opportunity to
enjoy the fishing, too.

March 20 was a brisk and
beautiful spring day at Free-
port Elementary School. Ea-
ger first and second grade
students looked forward to
fun Easter activities and the
"big" egg hunt. As the first
graders "sprang" into action
and began searching for the
brightly colored eggs, they
had a surprise visit from the


Easter Bunny.
He watched as the chil-
dren scrambled for the col-
orful eggs and could hear
their laughter as it echoed
across the green field.

The students were de-
lighted to find so many spe-
cial eggs, and a few even
stopped to have their pic-


tures made with the Eas-
ter Bunny. Later that day,
after the second graders
had enjoyed surprises in
their classrooms, they too,
scampered across the grass
hunting for that "prize" egg
among all of the other beau-
tiful eggs.
It was an 'egg'cellent day
and tons of fun for all.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 3,2008

FCAT Reward Day


In the weeks preced-
ing FCAT testing, third-
fifthgrade students at FES
were busy earning "FCAT
bucks."
They received the money by
displaying good work hab-
its, preparing diligently for
the FCAT, showing respect
and courtesy for others, be-
ing good citizens, and giving
their very best effort in all
areas of school life.
They were encouraged
to absorb as much informa-
tion as possible in order to
be successful not only on
the FCAT but in their daily


lives. After FCAT testing,
they used their "cash" to
purchase reward options.
They could use their "bucks"
to see a movie and have pop-
corn, play kick ball outside
and enjoy popsicles, play
board games, play bingo
for prizes, or reveal their
creative side while doing
projects in the art room. It
was a fun way to encourage
student success and allow
the students a much-needed
reward after their great ef-
forts during FCAT testing.
After hours call Nancy
Currie at (850)859-2581.

MSE second grade class completes book


Mrs. Kent's second grade
class at Maude Saunders
Elementary has recently
completed the book "Flat
Stanley." Stanley was able
to go on lots of adventures


because he was flat. Each
student created their own
Flat Stanley to mail to a
friend or relative from out
of state. They hope that he
will get to go on lots of ad-


ventures and return safely
with pictures and informa-
tion about his trip.During
the Flat Stanley lessons, the
class was able to learn about
the United States and loca-


tion of different states. They
practiced writing letters and
envelopes. The class is anx-
iously waiting for his safe
return home real soon.

This week the Walton
County Red Birds a team
of local Special Olympics
hopefuls could be found
practicing volleyball at the
Boys & Girls Clubs of De-
Funiak Springs Teen Cen-
ter. The team of six players
and two alternates was pre-
paring for the state Special
Olympics games to be held
in Orlando next month.
"We are very fortunate


while school is out to have
someone else to play." said
coach Patricia King as the
Red Birds faced off against
a group of teen center pa-
trons. "You can't believe the
improvement we've had in
the last two weeks."
King said the teen cen-
ter was a significant step
up from the team's previ-
ous practice site, the gym at
Tivoli School which lacked
air conditioning.

The 2007-08 high school
boys basketball season end-
ed last month with another
strong performance by area
teams. While only Paxton
and Walton made the play-
offs, Freeport had an out-
standing season that was
knocked out by catching
the flu bug the week of the
district tournament while
Ponce de Leon and South
Walton worked to rebuild.
The DeFuniak Herald re-
cently selected the All-Area
team from boys basketball
players from Paxton, South
Walton, Freeport, Walton
and Ponce de Leon.,
ZackVickers edged Jamey
Goddin for the Herald Play-
er of the Year Award, while
Goddin earns the Most
Valuable Player Award as
he scored 21.2 points per
game on the year while to-
taling 594 points during the
2007-08 season.
Vickers was everywhere
for Paxton this season as
he was second on the team
in scoring with 13.8 points
per game, an outstanding
rebounder and shot-blocker
as well as a solid defender.
Shaq Jackson winds up
on both the First Team
unit as well as Freshman of
the Year. Jackson, who led
Paxton in scoring with 14.5
points per game, showed un-
canny athleticism in helping
Paxton to a 27-3 season with
three years of eligibility to
go.
Freeport's Alex Newkirk
showed a lot of the same
traits as Jackson as he was
third on the team in scoring
with 12.2 points per game
while providing a solid de-


fensive presence with coach
David Burke's pressure de-
fense. Newkirk, a sopho-
more, is yet another young
player that should shine on
the court at a Walton Coun-
ty school for the next two
seasons.
Walton's Tarell Bram-
let battled inside against
bigger foes for most of the
season while leading the
Braves in scoring with 12.8
points per game. Bramlet,
a junior, had a solid year in
both football and basketball
for the Braves and has one
year left to play.
Jeff Bradley is Coach of
.the Year as Paxton sweeps
that award this season.
Bradley, who has toiled
quite successfully in Class
A in both baseball and bas-
ketball, had his best squad
at Paxton in his tenure and
may be able to improve upon
this year's performance over
the next few seasons. De-
spite a heartbreaking loss
at the buzzer to FAMU High
in the region final, Paxton
opened their new gymnasi-
um with record crowds who
were treated to one of the
best boys basketball teams
in the school's history.
Demetrius Moore picks
up the Sixth Man Award as
he came off the bench to pro-
vide Paxton a boost for most
of the season. Not many
area teams have a 6-6 scor-
er and shot-blocker to call
upon, but Jeff Bradley eased
Moore into the lineup when
his squad needed a boost.
Moore responded with a 9.3
points per game average
while grabbing rebounds
and blocking shots for a


Paxton team that reached
the Region final in Class A.
Many of the area boys bas-
ketball players were under-
classmen this past season,
meaning a lot of the same
players will likely be seen on
our 2008-09 All- Area team.


That won't come as much of
a surprise to area fans. Oop-
posing coaches will have
their hands full figuring out
how to stop what should be
another strong season from
the Area 5 teams in the next
school year.


PAXTON'S ZACK VICKERS was our Player of the Year
after leading Paxton to the Class A Region final.


PAXTON COACH JEFF BRADLEY chats with an offi-
cial during one of the Bobcats playoff games this past sea-
son. Paxton finished 27-3 and reached the Region I final in
Class A.


PAXTON'S SHAQ JACKSON (30) works to defend a
Freeport player during the 2007- 2008 season.


TARELL BRAMLET HAD A STRONG junior year for
the Walton basketball team as he led the club in scoring as
the Braves won 13 games last season.


DEMETRIUS MOOR WAS a weapon coming off the
bench last season for the Paxton Bobcats.

No signs of


compromise


seen or heard


By LEAH STRATMANN
The tension in the filled-
to-capacity and then some
room at the Coastal Branch
Library was palpable as
members of the Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC)
and community members
met to discuss the instal-
lation of directional and
community markers in and
around CR-30A.
Many community mem-
bers carried signs asking,
"What were you thinking?"
As the room filled up, it was
clear many people had not
come with open minds and
a willingness to discuss al-
ternatives. Before the start
of the workshop, Bonnie
Vines, a Seagrove resident
since 2003 said, "I want to
have the signs taken down."
Those attending the way-
finding signage workshop
had to sign in at the door,


after first passing through
a phalanx of TDC employ-
ees and television cameras.
Speaking on behalf of the
TDC, Tracy Louthain out-
lined the guidelines of the
meeting, which officials
hoped would result in be-
ing able to take three to five
ideas back to the TDC coun-
cil for the April meeting.
"The sign design has cre-
ated a specific difference of
opinion. The TDC does not
want the signs to become
a source of contention that
will divide the community,"
Louthain said, "but we have
been charged by the council
to find out what can be .done
to make the signage more
acceptable to the commu-
nity. The bottom line is we
are all here because we ap-
preciate the scenic beauty of
30A," she said.
This created a general

chased by the Tourist Development Council causing the fuss

Stratmann)


grumbling in the room, with
many muttering out loud
for removal of the signs, al-
though Louthain had asked
everyone to keep an open
mind, saying the council
wanted the meeting to pro-
duce a positive outcome.
Sonny Mares, interim ex-
ecutive director of the TDC,
said the issue of the signs
has been in the works for
more than seven years and
presentations were made to
virtually every important
group of decision makers in
the county. He outlined the


importance of tourism to the
community in terms of dol-
lars generated and jobs pro-
duced.
"The Beaches of South
Walton is not a place, it is a
concept. It has been a seven-
year process to find and place
these signs with a commit-
tee of 13 citizens working to-
gether to develop a family of
signs acceptable to the com-
munity," Mares said. Mares
said a number of different
design styles were present-

Burke's

motion to

dismiss
By CHRIS MANSON
In the First Judicial Cir-
cuit Court Tuesday morn-
ing, Judge Kelvin Wells
denied defendant Charlie
Burke's motion to dismiss.
Burke, the suspended
South Walton County Mos-
quito Control District (SW-
CMCD) Commissioner,
acted as his own counsel.
He told Wells that Greg
Anchors of the State Attor-
ney's office must come for-
ward with facts and that the
case against him was inad-
equate.
Following Wells' denial,
Burke asked how he could
appeal that decision.
Burke is facing trial on
charges that he unlawfully
submitted a false statement
to the Walton County Su-
pervisor of Elections prior
to his run for the SWCMCD
position. Anchors contended
that Burke did not reside in
Walton County at the time,
a violation of Florida statute
104.011.
Anchors said he did not
provide a statement of par-
ticulars to Burke. Wells
granted a motion that would
require the state to provide
dates or at least limit the
time frame covered in the
charges against Burke.
"I am a registered voter,"
said Burke. "Quit wasting
the court's resources and
the taxpayers' money."
Burke also said Anchors
never supplied him with
any sworn complaints from
material witnesses. "Mr.
Anchors indicted me as a
one-man jury. I was duly
elected. I should be indicted

CTST discusses traffic/pedestrian concerns


By JEFFREY POWELL
"We would like to see
some inter-connectivity be-
tween bike and pedestrian
trails near U.S. 98, particu-
larly the new trails in the
town center area of south
Walton," said Walton Coun-
ty Community Traffic Safe-
ty Team (CTST) Chairman
Kevin Chilcutt. "It is inevi-
table that traffic of all kinds
will increase. A beach-to-bay
connection has always been
part of the plan."
Chilcutt's comments
came during the CTST reg-
ular monthly meeting held
on March 26, at the old post
office in Freeport. The CTST
comprises state, county and
city staff members as well as
citizens who work together
to identify traffic safety is-
sues and report them to the
Florida Department of
Transportation. The, team
also makes recommenda-
tions that provide a solution
for those problems.
The CTST priorities and


tracks several traffic con-
cerns as part of their nor-
mal agenda. Their current
priorities include turn lanes
on U.S. 98 at Geronimo
Street in Miramar Beach,
a multi-use trail along
Walton Road, turn lanes at


Woodyard Road and U.S.
90, and a westbound right-
turn lane off U.S. 98 at J.D.
Miller Road, with increased
signage.
Team member Vicki Ki-
tahara reported that a bike/
pedestrian trail is soon to


be built connecting U.S. 98
and Helen McCall park in
Santa Rosa Beach. The path
will be constructed adjacent
to Moll Drive as soon as the
particulars can be finalized.
"It only makes sense to
connect these trails in a safe


manner," aaded Chilcutt.
"The problem is finding the
right location for the con-
nectivity."
The CTST's next meet-
ing is on April 23, at the old
Freeport post office at 10
p.m. The public is invited.


THE INTERSECTION OF U.S. 98 AND U.S. 331 is one of CTST's many concerns. Currently there is no safe means of
getting to the south side of the intersection for pedestrians or bicyclists. Photo by Jeffrey Powell.

Coastal Dune Lake Board continues to plan


By LEAH STRATMANN
The meeting last week
of the Coastal Dune Lake
Advisory Board (CDLAB)
featured a long agenda, but
various impediments pre-
vented much forward move-
ment for the group. After the
call to order and the pledge,
chairman Meg Nelson intro-
duced new board members
Ken Sloan of Freeport and
Susan Paladini, a resident
of 4-Mile Village.
Under the heading of old
business, Nelson asked the
group to start thinking of a
meeting date for formulat-
ing a budget for the group to
present to the Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC). "This board
has no budget and we feel
some discretionary funds
should be available for the
group in case we want to
send someone to a confer-
ence or for some other pur-
pose requiring funds," she
said.
Educating homeown-
ers and visitors to the area
about the rarity of the coast-
al dune lakes and the ways
in which ordinary people
can have an impact is an
ongoing project of CDLAB.
An educational film will be
debuted at the next meet-
ing, as well as educational
material being planned for
lakeside kiosks, although
discussion of the kiosk dis-
plays was tabled until the
next meeting.
Brooke Saari, the exten-
sion agent from the Univer-


On March 26, the South
Walton Fire District (SWFD)
received a call for a single
wide house trailer located at
274 Hidaway Bay Dr. on fire
and threatening other struc-
tures in the Bayside Subdi-
vision. Eight minutes later
at 5:46 p.m., the SWFD ar-
rived to find a singlewide
mobile home on fire with
an estimated 75 percent in-
volvement. The single occu-


sity of Florida for Walton
and Okaloosa Counties, said
she was already putting to-
gether ideas on an educa-
tional campaign. "We have a
list of 2,500 people who live
within 200 feet of the lakes,"
she said, "maybe we can put
together a mailer for these
residents."
Oyster Lake resident
Michael Sammons said he
thought an e-mail campaign
would be more cost-effective
than a mailer. Board mem-
ber Jeannie Wilson agreed
with Sammons, but said a
point person was needed for
each lake to collect e-mail
addresses of the residents.
Walton County environ-
mental planner Billy McKee
suggested putting together
a message board about the
lakes, possibly to be added
to SoWal, the Web site con-
taining all manner of infor-
mation about south Walton
County.
"Having a bulletin board
is a great idea, but first peo-
ple have to know it is there,"
commented resident Jackie
Markel.
Richard Bryan, a member
of the Lake Powell Commu-
nity Alliance, said his group
is trying to recruit members
to educate neighbors about
the unique qualities of the
living on the lake. "Things
are much improved around
Lake Powell. We are looking
for a core group for the edu-
cational component and we
would like to bring individ-
ual homeowner associations


pant had been alerted and
evacuated by neighbors.
Fire units from three sta-
tions battled to contain the
fire from spreading to two
nearby .structures, bring-
ing the fire under controlin
approximately 15 minutes.
Unfortunately, due to the
advanced involvement of the
fire prior to SWFD's arrival,
both the structure and con-
tents were a complete loss.

a decade. Currently some
Oyster Lake residents would
like to see the plans for a mo-
torist bridge at the Seahorse
Causeway replaced with a
pedestrian bridge. "Creating
a vehicle bridge puts more
stress on the lake," Robert
Underwood said. "I would
like the county to put in a
pedestrian bridge instead.
The funding is already there
for a vehicular bridge."
Speaking in opposition of
the pedestrian bridge, Sam-


mons noted that Seahorse
Circle ends at Underwood's
house and he opposes the
construction of a pedestrian
bridge, citing the need for an
80-foot emergency vehicle
turnaround, which would
infringe on his property.
Chairman Nelson said at
this point the board needs
to hear from county public
works regarding the issue.
"At first blush a pedestrian
bridge seems to be a bet-
ter idea, but we clearly are


not in possession of all the
facts," she said. Nelson then
tabled discussion of the is-
sue to the next meeting.
The last issue concerned
asking the county planning
division to draft a specific
ordinance regarding the
construction of docks in and
around the coastal dune
lakes.
The next meeting of CD-
LAB is April 24, at 9 a.m.
in the meeting room at the
Coastal Branch Library.

BCC schedules second


animal control hearing


By CHRIS MANSON
Following a brief pub-
lic comment section and a
handful of concerns from its
members, the Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) decided at
Tuesday's regular meeting
to hold another public hear-
ing on a proposed animal
control ordinance amend-
ment.
The second public hear-
ing is scheduled for April 22
at the Walton County Court-
house in DeFuniak Springs.
During the hearing, BCC
chair Larry Jones made
suggestions for improving
the 12-page document, spe-
cifically a section concern-
ing rabies vaccinations. He
cited a Florida statute that
only required vaccinations
for dogs, cats, and ferrets
every three years as opposed
to annually.
Jones also recommended
changing part one of the
nuisance animal definition
to include any animal that
poses a threat to livestock.

istration/tab%20C.pdf.

MOTION

FROM FRONT
by a grand jury." Burke sug-
gested that the state's case
was politically motivated.
Anchors told Wells he
had attempted to take de-
positions from Burke's wit-
nesses, but many were un-
available. Wells stated that
if witnesses were not made
available to either side, the
testimony would be disal-
lowed. "The rules apply to
both sides," said Wells.
Burke said he would
contact the witnesses, but
added that he had no con-
trol over them. He started
to make another motion to
dismiss the case, but Wells
informed Burke that he was
"not going to keep spinning
wheels.
"Mr. Burke, you're not
going to get any special
privileges because you're
representing yourself," said
Wells.
The next round of pre-
trial proceedings is set for
Thursday, April 17, at the
Walton County Courthouse.
The docket day is slated for
May 1, with the trial to en-
sue on May 5.


District 5 Commission-
er Cindy Meadows shared
constituents' concerns
about whether puppy mills
were addressed in the ordi-
nance. Deputy Emergency
Response Director Matt
Douglass informed Mead-
ows there was no language
in the draft "dealing with
puppy mills per se."
Meadows also expressed
concern about a require-
ment that cats be leashed.
"I've never seen one on a
leash," she said. "I don't
know if you've ever tried to
put a collar on a cat, but it's
not reasonable to have cats
on a leash."
Animal control officer
Lois Marlowe explained
that when cats roam, they
often jump on and scratch
vehicles. Cats also crawl
inside car engines. "If a cat
is damaging property, you
should go to the neighbor,"
said Meadows.
During the public com-
ments, Bill Bard talked
about a Dade County ordi-
nance that he felt should
serve as a model for Wal-
ton County. "Animal con-
trol goes much deeper than


this," said Bard. "We spend
thousands a year on animal
control due to irresponsible
owners. Many elements from
(Dade) could be inserted to
save taxpayers money."
Tom Terrell, of Mossy
Head, said he disagreed
with Meadows. "I don't care
how difficult it is to get a
collar on," he said. "It's the
owner's responsibility. Cats
can cause as much damage
as dogs."
Meadows recommended
that a requirement for spay
and neuter programs be add-
ed to the ordinance. "That's
the crux of the problem," she
said.
The question of how to
deal with large animals
came up, and County Ad-
ministrator Ronnie Bell in-
formed the BCC that this
ordinance only covered dogs
and cats. "We currently do
not have the capabilities to
handle larger animals," said
Bell.

District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon motioned to
continue the public hearing
on April 22. The motion car-
ried unanimously.

ed before it was decided to
adopt guidelines from the
Manual on Uniform Traffic
Codes which calls for white
letters on a blue background
and signs built to withstand
140 mile-per-hour winds for
signs located in the right of
way.
"These elliptical signs are
designed to stand out from
other signage and brand the
sense of place," Mares said.
"This is a family of signs all
directing people to the beach.
We have signs on U.S. 331,
on Hwy 20, etc. because the
beaches of south Walton is
not a place on the map."
Dave Rauschkolb, a
member of the Scenic Pride
Initiative, a group working
for the removal of the signs,
said he admires the TDC
and usually agrees with the
actions of the council, but
"not about these signs." He
read a letter from Robert
Davis, founder of Seaside,
and Roger C. Wilson, a vice-
president of the St. Joe Com-
pany, asking for the signs
to be removed from the en-
trances to Seaside and Wa-
terColor.
Rosemary Beach opted
out of sign placement on
their property before the in-
stallation began.
"We should be celebrating
scenic corridor designation
and the signs should reflect

ticularly the pitcher plant.
The meeting will be held on
Wednesday, April 16 at the
Embassy Suites Hotel in


the environment. The harsh
colors do not reflect this ar-
tistic and design conscious
community," Rauschkolb
said. His group had three
recommendations: placing a
moratorium on placing any
more signs, removing all the
signs placed along CR-30A
and the feeder roads, and
establishing a joint project
team.
Claire Bannerman, who
headed up a group of people
who worked for three years
to have CR-30A designated
as a scenic corridor by the
Department of Transporta-
tion (DOT) said the designa-
tion has benefits. "Change
is inevitable, but ugliness is
not," she said. Designation
as a scenic corridor opens
the door for federal and
state grants.
All semblance of order
quickly dissipated when
citizens began taking the
floor and making comments.
"You all want us to work
with the signs we have when
I believe the majority of the
folks on 30A want the signs
removed. Our biggest rec-
ommendation isn't even on
your list, which is to remove
them," said a participant.

ed those whose only recom-
mendation was removal
should leave, more than half

parted. "We want to capture
other ideas from people who
have ideas other than re-
moval," Louthain said after
the mass exodus.
The intention of break-
ing out into groups was dis-
banded and instead Lout-
hain fielded comments from
the remaining audience
members. The major areas
of contention are the quan-
tity of signs, which is 49, the
color and the height and lo-
cation of them.
Most did not seem to care
that $260,000 was spent on
the acquisition and place-
ment of the signs. It was
noted the redwood signs
erected 15 years ago did not
blow down during the hur-
ricanes and continued to
look great until they were
removed in favor of the new
signs.
Bannerman said the ex-
isting signs do not meet the
intrinsic qualifications of a
scenic corridor and perhaps
language could be put on
the back of the signs, which
are currently blank, denot-
ing the scenic corridor des-
ignation. At the conclusion
of the meeting, Bannerman
said she was disappointed
by the outcome, saying their
partner the TDC ignored
the scenic corridor group.
"The disconnect is serious
and community pride has
been injured," she noted.
Likewise Louthain had
no comment afterward
when asked if the TDC ac-
complished what they set
out to do. "I don't have a
comment to that," Louthain
said. The issue will be on the
agenda at the next meeting
of the TDC, which is April 9
at 9 a.m. at the TDC offices
located at the intersection
of U.S. 98 and U.S. 331, al-
though the site is subject to
change.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 3,2008


Chautauqua
programs that took
place this year in
DeFuniak Springs,
more locals became
aware of the
culture and
diversity that this
county and event
has to offer.
-----------------------
It has been nearly a
month since both
Chautauqua programs
were presented in
DeFuniak Springs. The
first Chautauqua in the
month of February made its
annual return, Jan. 31 -
Feb. 3. Well-attended, it
was again a diverse array
of cultural activities,
lectures, demonstrations,
exhibits and concerts. As
always, it was a credit to
the spirit of Chautauqua.
For over a decade, the
Florida Chautauqua Center
has attracted thousands to
the city and has laid the
groundwork for education,
entertainment and
community spirit. It helped
DeFuniak Springs regain
its long-lost cultural
reputation and has
provided an economic boost
to the area.
At the end of February,
the Florida Chautauqua
Winter Assembly in the
Land of Summer made its
debut in DeFuniak Springs.
Another weekend of
cultural events, concerts,


The newly-formed
organization added to the
cultural diversity of the
community and had an
overall "sweet" spirit. It
was the kind of spirit that I
had not seen in this
community in the many
years that I have lived in
DeFuniak Springs.
Both assemblies offered
education, entertainment
and spiritual development
for' anyone whether they
came from across town or
from across the country.
Both reached out to those
attending and said,
"Welcome to our
community, let's learn and
grow together."
But with anything new
in a small town, there are
always those who seem
reluctant to accept change
and too often feel that there
is not enough room for
anything different. This
scenario has reared its ugly
head before, but does so
this time with
reprecussions.

A handful of disgruntled,
misinformed citizens of the
area seem to feel that the
"new" assembly stepped on
some toes and tried to take
over the reigns of the
cultural scene in DeFuniak
Springs and Walton
County. There were even
accusations that volunteers
and speaker lists from the
Florida Chautauqua Center
had been stolen for the
Florida Chautauqua Winter
Assembly and that those
appearing had been misled.
Frbm letters to the


FLORIDA CHAUTAUQUA ASSEMPLY president Ann Robinson, addressed a corwd of
more than 50 volunteers at the home of Charles and Marie Hinson.in DeFuniak


Those who wanted to be
at either or both
assemblies have earned
thanks from the entire
community! They gave of
their time and efforts and
the only thing that received
in return was a chance to
join with your neighbors
and have the chance to
grow through education
and enlightened
experience.
As for the newer Florida
Chautauqua Winter
Assembly, there liave been
many opinions offered by
locals about the reasons
why it broke off from the
original assembly. Some
suggested it was spite,
others say it was because
of a genuine need for the
event's survival. I, for one,
have heard several times
over the' years that the
original assembly would
not be returning. With
those words, I, along with
several hundred other
residents, speakers,
volunteers and organizers,
recognized a need to
continue the event, with a
fresh outlooks that still
honored the old traditions.
Over the past month,
both of these events have
been thoroughly discussed


by everyone, including
those who really know
nothing of the assemblies,
since they never attended,
as well as by people who
worked closely with both of
the assemblies as
volunteers and presenters.
Most agree that both
assemblies were wonderful.
Many were astounded
about the outcome of the
new Florida Chautauqua
Winter Assembly and the
response it received over
new events like the film
festival and the Radio
Chailtauqua Companion
Show.

A lot of the volunteers
said that they enjoyed
working with the
assemblies this past
February and stated that it
gave them a great sense of
pride about their
community, while allowing
them to spend time with
friends that also attended
or volunteered for the
programs. They were also
among the first to say that
they finally understood the
Chautauqua message
about community spirit.
For the few that seem to
not want to see the
programs excel, be
rejuvenated or grow, there
is nothing that an editorial
can do to change their
minds about having two
Chautauqua assemblies in
DeFuniak Springs. It


seems that a few .have
chosen "sides." That's too
bad.
In a time of constant
change and a continuing
thirst for knowledge, there
are two main points that
come to mind. First, the
original Florida
Chautauqua Center seems
to be setting the
groundwork for another
decade of assemblies that
will enlighten and educate
the community. It will still
have volunteers that will
feel the need to learn and
experience new and
exciting aspects about the
world around them. It will
continue to supply the
community with cultural
and educational activitiesT,'
no matter who is going to
be the director, president or
volunteer chairperson.
That's wonderful news for
those of us who remember
being told that each year
would be the last year
because of the cost of
organizing the event.
Second, the new Florida
Chautauqua Winter
Assembly in the Land of
Summer has planted its
roots and has already
begun a firm foundation in
the community for many
years to come and has done
so after only one year. It
was apparent that a large
segment of the community
was clearly ready for a
change and were willing to


put many hundreds of
hours of work into this
inaugural event to help
ensure its success.
I listened to those
connected with the newer
assembly at parties and
socials after the various
programs and by sitting in
on discussions and it's clear
that 2009 is going to be
another exciting year and
the next event will far
exceed expectations from
their first year.
So whether you like it or
not, want it to be true or
false, hope for one or the
other to fail, it looks like
there-" will be two
assemblies next year. For
those who have, ,wastedH
third time on mudslinging,"
hurt Tfeelings and name-
calling, 4qt it go and begin
to grow, T

Believe it or not, a
change is coming to this
area, and I am not
referring to presidential
candidates' empty
promises, but to those who
have become involved with
the community. The
younger residents are
taking notice and are
getting more involved and
it seems like they all agree
on one thing that is,
whatever can make the
place we live a little better,
we should give our all to
make it happen, no matter
who is in charge.

ty's court costs from Watson.

opment services director, for authorization to set up a pro-
cedure for the county to consider two-year extensions of de-

to undergo Walton County Planning Commission review

the two-year development order extension proposal carried

OWC Trustees approve South

Walton Center construction


A seventh location for
Okaloosa-Walton College
(OWC) is moving forward as
the college's district board of
trustees approved award of
a $2.8 million construction
contract to build the OWC
South Walton Center. OWC
trustees approved a compet-
itive bid by Trammell Con-
struction of Pensacola at the
board's March 18 meeting.
Construction on the educa-
tional center is expected to
begin in summer 2008 and
is anticipated to be complet-
ed in summer 2009.
OWC is developing ap-
proximately 16 acres of the
nearly 30 acre site located
on U.S. 331, just north of
U.S. Hwy. 98. South Walton
High School, the South Wal-
ton Library and the Walton
County Government Cen-
ter are already located on
adjacent parcels. The first
phase of construction on the
OWC South Walton Center


will consist of four buildings
all under the same roofing
structure with about 11,000
square feet of administrative
and classroom space. The
OWC South Walton Center
will be the college's second
facility in Walton County,
and one of five centers that
are associated with the col-
lege's two main campuses in
Niceville and Fort Walton
Beach.
Construction at the site
will also include facilities to
house the Choctawhatchee
Basin Alliance, an environ-
mental organization oper-
ated under the auspices of
OWC. The CBA is particu-
larly active in South Walton
County with several initia-
tives, including its Dune
Lakes work to help preserve
the rare coastal dune lakes
that dot the region. The
new OWC South Walton
Center will also provide a
home for the college's Al-
lyn C. Donaldson Entrepre-


neurial Institute, a program
of the college made possible
through gifts to the OWC
Foundation from Donald-
son, a long-time Santa Rosa
Beach resident and OWC
Foundation board member.
In other action, OWC
trustees also approved a
tentative season of national
shows for the college's Mat-
tie Kelly Fine and perform-
ing Arts Center. Trustees
authorized the college to
move forward to finalize
contracts for a slate of popu-
lar Broadway and Artist Se-
ries touring shows and the
board is expected to review
the final schedule of shows
at their May meeting. Dr.
Cliff Herron, Executive Di-
rector for the Mattie Kelly
Arts Center, presented the
tentative schedule and in-
dicated that season tickets
will go on sale this summer,
following approval of the fi-
nal slate of shows.
