The Paxton Town Council
meeting on April 8 started
out with Council members
wanting to go on the record
over their absence at a prior
county EAR/Comprehensive
Plan public meeting, held
March 26 at the town hall.
The meeting was intended
as a two-hour workshop to
get public input on proposed
amendments to the county's
Comprehensive Plan. City
Clerk Suzan Davis said,
"There was an article in the
DeFuniak Herald stating
that the council was a no-
show at a Walton County


workshop so we feel like it
is important that we set the
record straight."
City billing clerk Judy
Williams said,"We received
a call asking to fent out the
meeting room for a commu-
nity meeting for that night
but had no notification of
what the meeting was for or
who should attend. We have
people rent this building all
the time and we were un-
aware when they scheduled
a rental date that it was for
a government meeting. They
called back to confirm the

Council members James
Huffman, James Coffield
and Don Harrison were
sworn back into office for
another three years by May-
or Harold Carpenter at this
week's DeFuniak Springs
City Council meeting. Af-
ter the ceremony Harrison
moved to re-appoint James
Huffman Mayor Pro Tem-
pore. The re-appointment
was approved unanimously
by the Council.
Carpenter then made
a motion for the meeting
times of the council to be
rolled back an hour. After
some discussion the council
voted unanimously for the
next Council meeting to be
held at 6 p.m. instead of 7
p.m. The Council agreed
that if the new time did not
prove to be convenient for
all involved they could al-
ways vote to move the meet-
ing time back to 7 p.m. The
new meeting time will take
effect starting April 28
The Council moved on to
appointing planning board
members. Harrison moved
to re-appoint Kermit Wright.
Huffman moved to re-ap-
point D.B. Campbell Sr. and
Coffield moved to re-appoint
Jim Harmon. Carpenter is
still waiting on verification
of his appointment.
DeFuniak Springs Fire
Chief Brian Coley requested
authorization to purchase a
new fire truck. The purchase
was included in this year's


budget and will be replac-
ing a 14 year-old model. The
newest truck in the fire de-
partment's garage is almost
nine years old. The total
cost for the purchase will be
$279,763 and the purchase
will be financed for over a
10-year period. The fire de-
partment will assume new
ownership of the fire engine
truck close to August of this
year. The council approved
the purchase unanimously.
Public Works Director
Bill Holloway requested and
received authorization to


purchase 10 new dumpster
beds for city trucks by unan-
imous vote. The dumpsters
will cost $10,125, or $975
each, and were included in
this year's budget.
The Council then moved
to renew the lease agree-
ment with the Walton Coun-
ty Council on Aging (COA)
for the 2008-2009 year. The
COA pays one dollar a year
to the city for the lease of
the building on Baldwin Av-
enue.
Councilman Henry Ennis
was nominated as a board


member for the COA and
Councilman Wayne Graham
was nominated to serve on
the board for Communities
for a Lifetime.
The Council agreed unan-
imously to not make citizens
have to carry a separate
special events insurance
policy to use city facilities.
Huffman told the Council,
"We want our citizens to be
able to use our facilities and
we don't allow alcohol so our
policy should cover us ad-
equately."
The Council agreed


unanimously to cancel the
regularly-scheduled Council
meeting on May 26, due to it
falling on Memorial Day.
Two emergency agenda
items were approved unani-
mously. A repair payment
for $15,069 for the water
department for well number
one. Holloway said that the
well was struck by lightning
or a power surge, and is still
being investigated. Also
approved was a payment
of $25,270 for emergency
road repairs on South Davis
Lane.


COUNCIL MEMBERS Don Harrison, James Huffman, and James Coffield were sworn back into office for another three
years by Mayor Harold Carpenter at this week's DeFuniak Springs City Council meeting.

Agri-Tourism


seminars offered


locally


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 17., 2008


The Walton County Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) in partnership with
the University of Florida's
IFAS extension, will offer
educational seminars on
becoming an agri-tourism
business. The agri-tourism
program was launched in
2006 and provides busi-
nesses the opportunity to
educate visitors on Walton
County's natural ecosys-
tems and working farms.
Agri-tourism involves
marketing an existing farm
or ranch product differently.
This is done by adding a new
product or service to existing
enterprises as an alterna-
tive source of income. Exam-
ples of agri-tourism activi-
ties include farm festivals
and tours, nature or historic
tours, bird watching, and
fee fishing or hunting. The
educational seminars will
be very diverse including
topics such as agri-tourism
101, managing your busi-
ness, insurance and liabil-
ity, managing staff, market-
ing, customer service and
agri-tourism in progress.
The seminars are sched-
uled on Wednesdays, from


April 30 through June 11,
from 6 to 9 p.m. at the IFAS
extension office, 732 North
9th Street in DeFuniak
Springs.
The following businesses
are currently being pro-
moted through the program
including Shoal Sanctu-
ary Nature Preserve and
Sculpture Trails, located in
Mossy Head; Rocking B-A-B
Ranch, located in DeFuniak
Springs; the Glendale Me-
morial Nature Preserve,
located in Glendale; and
Muskogee Nation of Florida,
located in Bruce.
The TDC will provide an
abundance of marketing op-
portunities for businesses
completing the course of
seminars. Participants re-
ceive listings within the
TDC's Visitors Guide, a
listing on the TDC's official
website, local, regional and
national media exposure,
listing in Agri-tourism bro-
chure and much more. For
more information about
registering and registration
fees contact Kendra Hugh-
son, IFAS extension, (850)

Mayor signs proclamation for


"National Day of Prayer"


On April 11, DeFuniak
Springs Mayor Harold Car-
penter signed a proclama-
tion declaring May 1, 2008
as a National Day of Prayer.
The ceremony was attended
by a small but enthusiastic
group of area pastors and
church representatives.
Carpenter first read, then


signed, the proclamation,
which read in part: "Prayer
is the bridge between Heav-
en and Earth and it is the
conduit through which the
spiritual realm is brought
into our everyday lives, and
Prayer is the method God
uses to provide not only
our daily needs from food


to shelter but also comfort,
strength and guidance...."
Carpenter's staff made
copies of the proclama-
tion for distribution to the
guests, and posed for a group
photograph with attendees.
A public observance and
prayer is planned for May 1
in DeFuniak Springs.


The National Day of
Prayer was created in 1952
by a joint resolution of Con-
gress, and signed into law by
President Harry Truman. It
is an annual observance
held on the first Thursday
of May, inviting people of
all faiths to pray for the na-
tion.


Boyd receives "Spirit of Enterprise" Award


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) received
the "Spirit of Enterprise"
award from the U.S. Cham-
ber of Commerce," said
Boyd. "The federal govern-
ment can play a meaningful
role in providing economic
opportunities for our busi-
nesses. I am proud to work
with the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce," said Boyd. "The
federal government can play
a meaningful role in provid-
ing economic opportunities
for our business. I am proud


to work with the U.S. Chan-
ber and the local chambers
in North Florida to promote
more economic growth in
our communities."
The chamber's "Spirit of
Enterprise" award is given
annually to members of
Congress based on rankings
it gives for key business
votes. The votes counted
by the chamber in 2007 in-
cluded the extension of the
federal backstop for terror-
ism risk insurance and the
passage of critical water re-


sources legislation to facili-
tate the nation's waterways
and ports and to authorize
funding for Everglades res-
toration.
Representative Boyd has
proven to be an effective ally
to the business community,
supporting legislation that
helps grow the economy and
creates new jobs for hard-
working Americans," siad
Tom Donohue, chamber
president and CEo. "The
chamber is grateful for Al-
len's commitment to these


important issue and is
proud to present him with
this award."
:Our communities are
stronger because of the
work and dedication of the
local chambers and their
membership," stated Boyd.
"I will continue to work in
Congress to support our
chambers and the issues
that are important to the
economic development of
North, Florida."

Boyd announces $1 million in

grants for West Florida Regional

Planning Council


- Congressman Allen Boyd
recently announced that
the West Florida Regional
Planning Council has been
awarded $1 million in two
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency (EPA) brown-
fields revolving loan fund
grants to support cleanup
activities at contaminated
.sites in northwest Florida.
The West Florida Regional
Planning Council will use
these two $500,000 grants
to provide loans and sub-
grants to clean tp sites con-
taminated with hazardous
substances and petroleum.
Brownfields are proper-
ties where the actual or
suspected presence of con-
tamination is an impedi-
ment to reuse. Numerous
potentially contaminated
sites, including manufac-
turing facilities, dry clean-
ers, and salvage yards, are
scattered throughout the
seven-county region repre-
sented by the West Florida
Regional Planning Council.
The West Florida Regional
Planning Council serves the
counties and municipalities
of northwest Florida which
include: Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton,
Bay, Washington, and Hol-
mes Counties.
"This grant will help
the West Florida Regional
Planning Council and our
communities turn problem
properties into community
assets, putting both people
and property back to work,"
said redevelopment, create
new jobs, and'stimulate eco-
nomic growth."
Under the federal Small
Business Liability Relief and
Brownfields Revitalization
Act, EPA provides financial


assistance to eligible appli-
cants through competitive
grant programs. The brown-
fields program encourages


-S


redevelopment of America's
estimated 450,000 aban-
doned and contaminated
waste sites.

date but never mentioned
once to us what the meeting
was about. Nor did they re-
quest that any of our Coun-
cil members attend."
Councilman Joe Melton
said, "Well I don't like the
way the article was word-
ed, that we were a no-show
and another thing is it was
scheduled on a Wednesday
night which is a church
night and no one notified us
individually. I just don't like
it."
Davis then said, "No one
from the paper called us and
ask why our Council didn't
attend and we just want to
explain what happened."
Councilman Bill McRae
said he had been in touch
with Walton County Com-
missioner Kenneth Prid-
gen's office and that Prid-
gen's office had to field many
calls over the issue and were
attempting to get the meet-
ing rescheduled.
The Council then moved
on and passed unanimously
the first reading of an or-
dinance amending the city

charter pertaining to elec-
tions and the approval to
advertise a new ordinance
relating to sexual offenders
within the city's limits.

Leigh Morrison, director
of the Senior Life enrich-
ment center, spoke before
the Council and invited the
members to pay a visit to the
facility. When questioned
about transportation to the
center Morrison said, "We
are working with Tri-County
transport and are also work-
ing on getting a van of our
own. If people want to come
to the center, we will work
out a way to get them there
and back home with a very
minimal charge if any."
The Council then ap-
proved to pay the increase
in one employee's health
insurance coverage. The
Council had previously set
the cap at employee insur-
ance policies at $400 but this
employee's premiums had
increased to $69 over that
cap without the employee
having to use the insurance.


Council members seemed
resigned to cover the in-
crease. Mayor Wanda Smith
told the council, "I think we
are going to have to cover
it. This person has not even
had to use it so they are not
abusing the medical cover-
age and I don't think we can
get it any cheaper." Melton
and McRae agreed, and the
Council voted unanimously
to cover the extra cost.
The Council then got
into a lengthy discussion
with board members of the
Dixie Youth League (DYL)
over parking, upgrades and
concession stand electric
bills. DYL President Chris-
ta Mitchell expressed the
need for safe parking for
all involved. Many alterna-
tives were discussed. In the
end the Council agreed that
those who were DYL board
members would make stick-
ers for their vehicles and be
allowed to park in the Town
Council parking lot, as long
as they did not block the
entry and exits for the city
vehicle lot behind the build-


ing.
After another round of
discussion, the Council ap-
proved unanimously to con-
tinue to pay the electric bills
for the concession stand
until improvements sug-
gested by Gulf Power could
be implemented and then
they would revisit the issue.
McRae stated that the bill
had totaled $2,417 for seven
months of use last season.
The Council moved on to
unanimously approve the
site for new batting cages,
picking the open area on
U.S. 331 behind the Walton
County Sheriffs Office sub-
station due to accessibility
and space.

The Council ended the
session by approving unani-
mously to declare a resolu-
tion honoring the memory of
the late city attorney E. Al-
lan Ramey. The resolution
honored over 30 years of
service to the city of Paxton,
his work on behalf of the
city and individuals and his
contributions to the city.

Assistant Editor's comment

Week

of

weeks
By BRUCE COLLIER
This is a busy year, all eight months and change that
remain. We just had a municipal election in De Funiak
Springs. The voters returned the incumbents to office,
while giving enough numbers to their challengers to en-
sure against over-confidence. Did you vote?
We have a county sheriffs race ahead of us oh, and
there's a national election, too that both promise to be
riddled with back stories and sub-plots, for those that pay
attention. By that, I mean, for those that read this fine
publication.
Three proclamation/designations have been made one
academic, one civic, one spiritual. Walton Middle School
(WMS) will host its 4th annual Literacy Week, April 21 -
24. I have participated in this event for several. years, read-
ing excerpts from favorite books, then trying to explain to
the students why this particular work speaks to me. The
kids are invariably polite, and good listeners. Sometimes
I wonder if I am getting anything across to them, being
neither young nor a streaming video. It won't stop me from
trying, though. I like an audience, even one that's watch-
ing me for academic credit. I also like to think I have two
characteristics that neither a young person nor a stream-
ing video have life experience and interactivity. By that
I mean I can give them lots of unsolicited good advice, and
can talk back when they ask questions. I can also tell when
they aren't impressed with my reverend wisdom. They,
too, are interactive.
De Funiak Springs Mayor Harold Carpenter signed two
proclamations recently. One designates April 27 May 3
as National Volunteer Week. "Inspire by Example" is the
credo of the volunteer, sometimes paraphrased as "Show-
ing up is half the battle."
Volunteer programs are everywhere in Walton County,
ranging from the purely practical, such as beach cleanup,
to the noble, such as meals on wheels. Judging from the
recent civic operetta over the Big Blue Beach Signs, a lot
of people in Walton County have plenty of spare time, so
Volunteer Week should be a busy one. If you aren't donat-
ing a little of your time, give it a try. I have a friend that
reads to residents at area nursing homes. He tried to de-
scribe the experience and the warmth of his reception, but
words failed him. Showing up may be far more than half
the battle.
Carpenter's other proclamation designated May 1 as
a National Day of Prayer. In addition to the customarily
scheduled activities such as public prayer gatherings -
there's one set in De Funiak Springs wouldn't it be nice
to initiate a discussion about faith in the county, and the
country? I don't mean a sneering debate or a "believe it
or burn" harangue. I'm talking about well-meaning people
sitting down in person and discussing what they believe,
and why, and giving the experts and the rhetoric the week
off. British writer Graham Greene once observed that it is
harder to hate people when you have to look them in the
face, because of the power of God's image. It's that "show-
ing up" thing, again.
How to celebrate these three designated weeks? If you
can read this, thank a teacher. If you read it walking on
a clean beach, thank those enviro-hippie-types that got
there early with rakes and (recyclable). bags and tidied it
up for nothing. If after doing that you look upward, just
thank God for the day. Mission accomplished.

Editor,
I am writing to you because of the "Morrison Springs
Park under construction" article. I think the Park was just
fine the way it was. I don't think that $1.3 million should be
spent on boardwalks and a parking lot, Morrison Springs
didn't need it. I have been going to Morrison Springs every
summer for 6 to 7 years now. Morrison Springs already
had a parking lot it just wasn't paved. What about the rope
swing is it still going to be there? What about the tree that
I used to climb and jump into the water? I bet that's not go-
ing to be allowed anymore. We don't need any boardwalks
to the boil, we swam to it. The divers already had a land-
ing. I never heard a diver complain for something fancier.
A few divers I've talked to told me they enjoyed the natural
beauty of the Springs and how "untouched" it was. Do we
have to make everything man-made? I thought God did a
fine job. The $1.3 million being put into these changes is
a lot of money that could be used on something better like
healthcare. Are we going to be charged to get in now like
the other springs? Morrison was the only spring we could
go to and not pay to have fun. What a bad idea this is.

Editor:
The Walton County TDC demonstrated poor judgment
and a lack of intestinal fortitude when they decided to re-
move the blue signs along the South Walton Highway 30A.
This is not the first time we hav,,e been down this road.
At a past Board of County Commissioners meeting it be-
came apparent that the county Scenic Corridor Committee
was dominated by the private Scenic Corridor Association
which, in turn, was dominated by a single individual. At
that meeting, after considerable debate, the BCC abolished
the county committee. It was later reestablished because
it was required in the land development code. The argu-
ments at that time also centered on signage. In these argu-
ments, the purpose of signs becomes lost. Their purpose is
to identify or give direction. Both functions were abysmally
lacking in the south of the county prior to the erection of
the blue signs. Even now, Sacred Heart Hospital is not con-
spicuously identified. Given the importance of tourism to
the Walton County economy, providing clear direction and
identification, to people new to the area, would seem to be
worthy of paramount consideration. Add to this the heavy
traffic, and the inability for easy identification or direction
becomes an invitation to a major accident. It is to be hoped
that the Walton County BCC will demonstrate better judg-
ment, fiscal responsibility and intestinal fortitude when
they consider the TDC recommendation.

DeFuniak Springs FL,


The Florida Senate Committee on Health Policy passed
a $1 increase in the state's cigarette tax on April 15. Spon-
sored by Sen. Ted Deutch (D- Boca Raton), SB 2790 would
raise the cigarette tax, which has not been increased since
1990, bringing it on par with the national average. The cur-
rent tax is 34 cents a pack. The national average is $1.11
per pack.
"This bill is not about balancing the budget, it's about
saving lives," said Deutch. "We have the opportunity to sig-
nificantly reduce the number of children who start smok-
ing, while ensuring that Florida's most vulnerable have
access to healthcare."
According to the World Health Organization, increas-
ing the cigarette tax is "the number one way to stop kids
from smoking." A release from Deutch's office says that "in
Florida, 72 kids a day begin smoking. The bill is intended
to save lives by discouraging people from smoking, while
generating over one billion dollars in revenue." The sena-


Income tax, "Unwieldly inefficient behemoth"
Editor:
Each year around tax time I think how difficult it is to
gather the information and get all that stuff in the right
place. I worry that I've forgotten something that would save
a bundle. Am I the only one who has trouble. It works out
apparently not.
The form 1040 requires 92 pages of instruction. It takes
on average of 33 hours to complete. The tax code has 2.8
million words, written on 67,506 pages.
In the next two years 300 billion in tax cuts will expire.
The new president will have to fiqure out how to cover our
10 trillion dollar national debt. The Iraq war costs 150 bil-
lion a year. Social security and Medicare about 160 billion
each. Looks like Hillary, John or Barack will be up a few
nights over that.
Respectfully
Jack Potter

tor's office stated that revenue generated from this bill
would go directly toward funding the budget cuts made
to healthcare including the Medically Needy Program and
cancer research.
The bill has some bi-partisan support, and passed the
Committee on Health Policy in a 4 to 1 vote. The bill now
heads to the Committee on Higher Education.
Associated Industries of Florida opposes a cigarette tax
hike. The association's spokesman, Jose Gonzalez, calls it
unfair, adding that Florida's 1997 tobacco settlement al-
ready directs hundreds of millions of dollars each year for
the state's tobacco-related health care expenses.
Governor Charlie Crist says he does not support an in-
crease in the cigarette tax. Deutch says there is not an-
other bill in the Legislature that would do more to pro-
mote public health and save lives, so he hopes the governor
reconsiders. Crist's Republican colleagues in the Florida
House reportedly are not supportive of the increase.

Heritage Museum baggage

room gets Spring cleaning


By JEFFREY POWELL
"The Walton County Her-
itage Museum (WCHM) is
so fortunate to have a great
team of volunteers," said
museum volunteer direc-
tor Diane Merkel. "In just
a matter of a couple of hour
they were able to transform
a dirty old room into an al-
ternative display area."
On Saturday, April 12,
Merkel and a handful of vol-
unteers tackled the job of
cleaning and re-organizing
the old baggage room at
the WCHM. Over the years
items had been collected
and stored in such a man-
ner as to be inaccessible and
out of sight. Of the many
treasures the room contains
are an original baggage cart
used to move baggage and
other items along the de-
pot loading area. Also, two
of the original wooden col-
umns from the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood building
were cleaned and returned
to the room. Additionally,
four long wooden pew-like
benches from the hall were
cleaned, and stored appro-
priately to ensure their con-
tinued preservation.
"We are fortunate and
thankful that the city al-
lows us to use this area,"
said Merkel. "We have some

Eglin surgeon helps save Iraqi boy's life


An Eglin surgeon was a
key player in saving a young
Iraqi boy's life last week.
Capt. Gabriel Rulewicz, an
Air Force surgeon deployed
to Kirkuk from Eglin, found
himself operating on an
Iraqi boy who was injured
by an improvised explosive
device. On his way home
from working in his fam-
ily's field March 27, Rahmey
Jarew didn't see the hidden
improvised explosive device
until it was too late.
Staggering for home af-
ter the blast, the 13-year-
old Iraqi boy had no way to
know that his life would be
saved by the quick, selfless
actions of soldiers and air-
men. "I heard and saw the
explosion from my window,"
said Arif Muter Jarew, Rah-
mey's father. It wasn't long
before his son stumbled
in with shrapnel wounds
riddling his knee, leg and
chest.
"I was panicked, there
was blood coming from his
mouth," Jarew said. "My son
was dying. He had blood ev-
erywhere." The hospital was
miles away and the desper-
ate father didn't think his
vehicle would make it. With
his son in his arms, he ran
out to the street to flag down
passing motorists for help.
"Then I saw a convoy of
American soldiers," he said.
Jarew was a little wary of
asking for help from coali-
tion forces. But, with his dy-
ing son in his arms, he only
hesitated a moment -- his
son's life was at stake.
"We saw some Iraqis wav-
ing us to stop and one was
cradling a kid," said Army
Pfc. Jeffrey Parson, the pa-
trol's medic. The soldiers
from the 1st Brigade, 10th
Mountain Division, began
treating what they thought
were gunshot wounds.
"There was blood coming
from the kid's mouth and his


wounds, so we treated the
bleeding first," Parson said.
The patrol radioed Forward
Operating Base McHenry in
the Hawijah district of the
Ta' Mim Province. A mede-
vac helicopter arrived a few
precious minutes after re-
ceiving the call to transport
Rahmey and his father to
the FOB. After Rahmey's
condition was stabilized,


he was transported along
with his father to the medi-
cal facility in Kirkuk, Iraq.
Army and Air Force medics
treated Rahmey for shrap-
nel wounds at the Freedom
Hospital.
"He's a very lucky boy,"
said Rulewicz. "He'll need
some surgery to remove the
shrapnel, but we've stabi-
lized him for transport."

Mingus Mill and Clingman's Dome, two

"must sees" when visiting the Smokies


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Great Smoky Moun-
tains National Park (GSM-
NP) is the nation's most
-visited national park. Lo-
cated on the border of North
Carolina and Tennessee,
the park has an estimated
9.2 million visitors annual-
ly. Practically speaking, the
main reason for this amaz-
ing number of visitors is the
proximity of the park to ma-
jor metropolitan areas of the
east coast. Another reason
for the high visitor count is
the diversity of the sights to
be seen once the visitor has
arrived. Two of the many
"must sees" are Mingus Mill
and Clingman's Dome.
Mingus Mill is located
near Cherokee N.C. about
three miles inside the park
entrance. The current mill
was built for Dr. John Min-


gus in 1886. The Mingus
family was of German decent
and had settled in the Ocon-
aluftee valley aroundl790.
Presumably a previous mill
had worn out, dictating the
need for the new structure.
Mingus contracted Sion T.
Early to construct the mill
for $600 and the job was
completed in just three
months. Mingus and Early
decided to power the mill
with a turbine rather than
the standard overshot water
wheel. Turbines are smaller
than water wheels, cost less
and last many times longer
than the alternative. Cus-
tomers brought in their corn
and wheat to be ground and
were generally charged one-
eighth of the product for the
milling. Visitors to the mill
can watch the entire process
and buy a bag of corn meal


to take home.
At 6,643 feet, Clingman's
Dome is the highest peak in
the Smoky Mountains, and
is the third-highest east of
the Mississippi river. Only
Mount Mitchell (6,684)
and Mount Craig (6,647),
located in Mount Mitchell
State Park, rise higher. The
mountain is named after
Thomas Lanier Clingman,
once a member of the North
Carolina House of Repre-
sentatives and later an ex-
plorer mapping the peaks of
the Allegheny range.
An observation tower now
sits atop the peak and on
a clear day provides views
into Tennessee and North
Carolina.. Unfortunately,
air pollution can sometimes
limit the viewing distance.
Clingman's Dome is located
roughly halfway between

through March 31, due to

Those who plan to visit

BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS OF THE SOUTH Walton area also show the SoWal brand.



The little website that could


By ALICIA LEONARD
Greek author and phi-
losopher Plato coined the
term, "Necessity, who is the
mother of invention." He
could have been speaking
about a little website that
over the last four years has
blossomed into somewhat of
a local and nationwide phe-
nomena.
SoWal.com, brainchild
and baby of developer,
owner and publisher Kurt
Lischka, started small. "We
had a simple message board
on another site that had a
small group of core users.
During and after Hurricane
Ivan in 2004 that board was
the only source of news for
locals and others outside
the area. We got a lot of new
traffic and myself and some
very helpful message board
members checked on prop-
erty for out of town owners
and let them know about the
condition of their homes."
said Lischka.
That experience led to the
birth of what many users
now simple call SoWal. Lis-
chka said, "I had the idea for
SoWal for quite awhile be-


fore Hurricane Ivan. A few
months after the storm I de-
cided to start it by creating
a more advanced forum on
SoWal.com and because of
the early core members we
had a good base. We filled a
niche for local news and dis-
course and it took off.""
The site, which features
everything one could need to
navigate the south Walton
area, grew quickly. "We've
since added tourist informa-
tion, maps, a live webcam,
photos, virtual tours, videos,
and more," adds Lischka.
The site just passed 7,000
registered members and is
still growing, according to
Lischka. "We have thou-
sands more unregistered
guests that visit every day
to see what's going on. We
have 21,000 topics in 12 dif-
ferent forums with 385,000.
messages. Members have
uploaded more than 6,500
photos which are on display
on the site."
How have people found
out about the site? Lischka
points out that it has a lit-
tle something to do with 'a
small square blue and white


SoWal.






THIS LITTLE BLUE
STICKER is seen from coast
to coast and brings new peo-
ple everyday to the website.


bumper sticker. "The SoWal
sticker itself has become a
phenomenon and I'm glad
people like to put them on
their bumpers," he said. The
stickers are often quoted by
members as being the first
place they saw the website
advertised. Bulletin Board
(BB) posters write of be-
ing passed on highways all
across the country with cars
sporting the SoWal.com
stickers and then logging
onto the site to see what it's
all about. The website has
also spawned a plethora of
merchandise sporting the
logo.
Lischka is not one to rest
on his laurels. He is also the
owner and publisher behind
Moon Creek Studios. He
shared a little on his other
business venture. "Moon
Creek Studios is celebrat-
ing its 10th Anniversary
this year. I'm very fortunate
that the internet came along
at the right time, which al-
lowed me to become my own
publisher so to speak. It al-
lowed me use my creative


skills to do what I enjoy -
traveling, writing, photog-
raphy, and marketing. On
MoonCreek.com we also
have an online photo gallery
for ordering photo prints or
framed prints of the area,
which allows the customer
to select mattes and frames,
and see what they will look
like before ordering. We also
have a library of over 600 im-
ages online which can be or-
dered for framing, or used in
marketing and advertising
in various ways for Internet
or print. We also have tens
of thousands of stock images


of the area on file."
The website has also in-
creased community aware-
ness. Posters organized on
the site to fight against the
"Big Blue" signs as they call
them and during the South
Walton High School turmoil
over the play Blithe Spirit.
Most posters also share a
love of the south Walto'n
beaches and the community
feel is apparent in every-
thing SoWallian, as some
have coined the term.
Lischka says it's not hard
to feel that way about the
area he calls home, "I have


a wonderful family and we
all love our community and
SoWal beaches, trails, for-
ests, bayous, creeks, and the
bay."
How does he explain the
ever growing website and
his part in it? "We're happy
that in some small way we
are able to give something
back to the place we love so
much. I am a Floridian, I've
lived all over Florida and
traveled widely but there's
nothing like SoWal, but I
sure wouldn't mind living in
NoWal either," Lischka said
with a smile.

think it's important for us to have alone time as a couple or am I just going a little stir
crazy from cabin fever? Any advice would be appreciated.
Needing advice in Niceville
(Name and address withheld on request.)

Dear Needing,
Cabin fever may be one of your issues but I think married couples definitely need
alone time to keep things running smooth. As they say here in the South, "If mama
ain't happy nobody is happy." The lack of alone time will began to wear on you if you
don't have it.
You say this is the first time living off base and I think that may be an issue as well.
Military wives have long been known to band together and help provide support to one
another as it can be trying to move often and have to make friends all over again.
I would reach out and speak with some of the other moms on base. They may already
have a play group and know of babysitters in your area. There is usually always a
contact person on base for new transplants and they would be a great place to start. If
this proves unsuccessful then reach out to some of the churches in your area and ask
about play dates or parent groups. Also, the local college has courses in early childhood
education. Contacting an instructor there may lead to a contact you will feel comfortable
in learning to trust and who can give you a break.
'Start out small and aim to go out for just an hour or two when you hire a new
babysitter. Ask for references as well from other parents. If all else fails run an ad in
the local paper and throughly check out the person before you let them spend time with
your kids. Remember, this is important. Happy kids have happy parents who share a
strong bond and get a break every once in a while. Good luck and God bless.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2008


Area director



uses area talent


John R. Hand has
managed to start his career
as a filmmaker 'without
going to Hollywood. The 29-
year-old Milton resident
graduated from Full Sail
Recorders in Orlando, FL.
For a time, Hand studied
alongside Derrin Lynn
Bouseman, director of the
successful horror series
films "Saw II," "Saw III,"
and "Saw IV."
Hand completed his own
film, "Frankenstein's
Bloody Nightmare," in
2006. The feature-length
horror film was shot over
the course of a year in the
Milton-Pensacola area,
using local actors, on a
modest budget of under
$2,000. It wasn't a breeze,
says Hand. "Shooting...was
delayed by hurricanes and
other smaller mishaps, but
the film eventually
premiered in 2006 in


Pensacola...." The film
traveled in New York,
where it was shown for a
week at the Pioneer
Theater. Hand says it
"garnered polarized reviews
in the New York Post, New
York Times and Variety,
among others." The film
also had its worldwide
premiere at the "Festival
Macabro" in Mexico.
"Frankenstein's Bloody
Nightmare" was released
on DVD in the U.S. in 2007
by Unearthed Films, and is
available at Netflix,
Amazon, and all major
online retail outlets.
Hand's second film,
"Scars of Youth," is
currently in production. In
the cast so far are Bruce
Culpepper of DeFuniak
Springs, Danny Thomas of
Niceville, Jeremy Hosbein
of Milton, and Amanda
Edington of Pensacola.


Several other roles remain
to be cast, and Hand is
searching for just the right
actors to round out the cast.
Not one to waste time,
Hand has already begun
shooting, on location in


Milton.
Bruce
appeared
national


Culpepper has
in area and
television


commercials and programs.
He has been seen on The
History Channel, The
Weather Channel, and in
the feature films
"Psychedelic Shack," by
Kenneth Jones Films, and
"Get Paper," by Roy Jones
Jr. Films. Culpepper was
originally cast in
"Frankenstein's Bloody
Nightmare," but had to
withdraw due to other
commitments. He is happy
to be working with Hand,
finally.
Danny Thomas has


extensive experience on
area stages. His work has
been seen at the Rep
Theatre at Seaside,
Okaloosa-Walton College,


Stage Crafters, Imogene
Theatre in Milton, and the
Corner Pocket in Niceville.
Hand expects to wrap up
"Scars of Youth" in six


months. For more

Youth" and "Frankenstein's
Bloody Nightmare" go to

"Give My Horse the

Sacrament Instead"

By Rev, Dr. G. Charles Satterwhite, Pastor


But Paul said to them,
"They have beaten us
openly, uncondemned Ro-
mans ... and now do they
want to put us out secret-
ly? No indeed! Let them
come themselves and get.
us out."
Acts 16:37
George Liele was a
slave in Georgia who felt
called into the ministry.
For a number of years, he
preached in slave quar-
ters at various plantations
near Savannah. He finally


settled in Jamaica where he
formed a church on his own
land.
Liele had faced preju-,
dice and persecution all of
his life, but he knew how to
stand up for. himself. Once
while he was leading a com-
munion service, a white
man rode his horse directly
into the church. Hoofing up
to the altar, the man said,
"Come, old Liele, give my
horse the Sacrament .In-
stead!"
"No, sir," said Liele with-


out blinking, "you are not fit
yourself to receive it."
The two men stared at
each other for several tense
moments, then the rider
abruptly turned his horse
and left. It was one Com-
munion service no one ever
forgot.
As Christians, we're to
be humble but not weak.
Sometimes we must speak
up for our beliefs and for
our civil rights, as Paul did
in Acts 16 when he insisted
on being treated with digni-


REV. DR. SATTERWHITE
ty by the Philippian mag-
istrates. Standing up for
our faith emboldens other
Christians and strength-
ens the whole church.
Without courage all vir-
tues lose their meaning.
Winston Churchill


There was something
very attractive about Jesus.
All sorts of people were at-
tracted to Him. Remember
Mark 10:14: "Suffer the
little children to come unto
me, and forbid them not: for
of such is the kingdom of
God." He was the friend of
children.
Christ welcomes the
children. The young folk of
today are the leaders of to-
morrow. A child is far more
responsive to the message of
God's love in the crucified,
risen Christ than an adult.
Pray that tomorrow's lead-


ers have been to Christ as
children. After all, Christ
extends a special invitation
to them.
Parents should bring
their children to Christ.
Wise parents bring their
children to Christ as Savior,
just as early as they can un-
derstand the Good News of
the Word of God. Dr. Gaines
S. Dobbins has said that
three-fourths of those who
are won to faith in Christ are
won in childhood. Parents
can bring their children to
Christ in a number of ways.
It may be by a beautiful


Christian home life. Anoth-
er is earnest prayer on their
behalf. Try teaching them
Christian principles from
day to day. Make time for
regular worship habits both
at home and at church.
The Christ who urges us
to bring our children will
help us .with our children.
We can trust Him for grace
and guidance. We can lean
on Him for wisdom and in-
sight. We can look to Him.
for the capacity to love,
should our children behave
in an unlovely way.
Let us pray that Christ


DR. ROBERT M. JAYE
will work in their hearts and
minds and wills, as we work
in teaching them. We show
our love for our Savior by co-
operating with Him and His
purpose of redeeming and
using our children for the
extension of His kingdom on
earth. God help us do so.


A child to love


You can have your wealth
and riches
All the things so many
seek,
Position, power, and suc-
cess,
The fame you long to
keep.
You can earn as much as
you wish,
Reach a status high
above,


But none of these can
equal
Having one sweet child to
love.
'Tis the greatest gift from
heaven,
Little arms that hold you
tight,
And a kiss so soft and
gentle
When you tuck them in at
night.


A million precious ques-
tions
And each story often
read,
Two eyes so bright and
smiling,
And a darling tousled
head.
God has never matched
the goodness
Of a trusting little face,
Or a heart so full of laugh-


ter
Spreading sunshine ev-
ery place.
A child to hold and cud-
dle,
'Tis a gift from God
abpve,
And the world is so much
brighter
When you have a child to
love.

Salittle child.

Welcomes Me.

South Walton wins Walton County tournament


By PATRICK CASEY
Shelby Watson pitched
a two-hitter as South Wal-
ton won their first Walton
County softball tournament
title with a 4-1 win over the
Walton Braves in DeFuniak
Springs on Friday night.
Walton(8-10) took an
early 1-0 lead in the bottom
of the fourth inning, only
to see South Walton rally
with three runs in the top
of the fifth inning. Brittany
Jay had a solid night at the
plate as she went 3-for-3.
Watson beat the Braves
for the third time this sea-
son on the mound as she
struck out 14 batters while
driving in a pair of runs for
the second night in a row.
The win saw the Sea-

hawks capture their 20th
win of the season against
only one loss.
Freeport(8-15) defeated
Paxton in the consolation
game 14-4 as Jordan Howell
had three hits while driving
in six runs for the Bulldogs.
Freeport rallied from a 4-2
deficit by scoring eight runs
over the final three innings
of play to rally for the win
in the only meeting between
the two schools this season.
Paxton(2-11) got three
hits from Chantel McCor-
mick and grabbed a 2-0 lead
before Freeport rallied to go
up 6-4 after three innings of
play.
On the opening day of the
event, South Walton picked
up a 3-0 win over Freeport
while Walton defeated Pax-
ton 10-0.
The Seahawks got a
no-hitter from sophomore
pitcher Shelby Watson as
she struck out 12 Freeport
batters in picking up the
victory.


Watson had a hand in
the three runs that the Sea-
hawks scored as she doubled
and scored in the second in-
ning on a sacrifice bunt by
Meghan Smith, then drove
in a pair of runs with a sin-
gle in the third inning for a
3-0 lead.
The Seahawks managed
only three hits off of Free-
port starter Curstin Bu-
ford, but took advantage of
five Bulldogs fielding errors
to put three runs on the
board.
Freeport drew three
walks from Watson, but
only got three balls out of
the infield, all flyouts to cen-
terfield.
Walton brought their
bats to bear on Paxton as
the Braves delivered 11 hits
in five innings of play while
plating 10 runs to down
the Bobcats 10-0 in five in-
nings.
Alex Infinger recorded
three singles for Walton
while driving in four runs


with Shelbie Standland add-
ing a pair of triples and five
RBIs in the nightcap.
Devin Richardson and
Emily Davis combined to
pitch a one-hitter as Lil-
lie Dixon had a single for
the Bobcats only hit of the
game.
Kappi Stewart took the
loss for Paxton as the Bob-
cats played their first con-
test after a 13-day break
due to Spring Break week.


Team Notes: South Wal-
ton and Walton will play for
the second time in five days
in Pensacola in the opening
round of the District 1, Class
3A softball tournament on
Tuesday. (Details were not
available at press time.)
Walton defeated South Wal-
ton last season in the open-
ing round of that same tour-
nament which was hosted
by the Seahawks, but the
South Walton squad has


won all three meetings so
far this season. Freeport,
Paxton and PDL must all
win two games to keep their
seasons going. Freeport may
have the best chance to do
so, but would have to upset
Baker on their home field in
the semifinals of the District
1,, Class 2A tournament on
Tuesday night assuming
they get past the Pirates in
the first round on Monday
evening..


FREEPORT'S CURSTIN BUFORD HELD South Walton to three hits, but the Bulldogs
fell to the Seahawks 3-0 in the opening round of the county softball tournament.

Meyer had last Friday, and
beat out three other runners
to capture Meyer's prize. He
won the scholarship after
a miscue at the start not
hearing the officials once
they gave the word to start
the race but after Satur-
day's game, no one seemed
to be laughing at his abili-

He also ran 41 yards on
the opening drive of the
game, proving he had the
moves and the speed to im-
press not only the fans, but
head coach Meyer. The blue

due to the runs by Rainey.
Tebow, who had been se-
verely ill the two days before
the game, did show some
improvement by throw-
ing 13-of-21 passes for 200
yards and two touchdowns.
He also threw two intercep-
tions. The first came on a
pass that slipped through
the hands of Butch Row-
ley. The second interception
came when an overthrow
was tipped by Aaron Her-
nandez, and was returned
for 50 yards for a touchdown
by Lorenzo Edwards.
Emmanuel Moody led the
orange team with 111 yards
rushing and a touchdown in
his Gator debut. He also ran
four consecutive times for 64
yards to start the second half
of the game, but fumbled at
the 1-yard line when hit by
Brian Thomas. Quarterback
'John Brantley, vying for the
back-up spot behind Tebow,
was out for the game, due to

FSU offense still has problems


By CHUCK HINSON
Everyone showed up for
the garnet and gold game
including the fans, the band,
the cheerleaders, and espe-
cially the Florida State Uni-
versity defense. This past
Saturday's game once again
proved that the FSU de-
fense was ready to play, but


the offense still has several
more years to get to where
they need to be to compete.

With Drew Weather-
ford out allowing time for
surgery on his right knee,
back-up quarterbacks soph-
omores Christian Ponder
and DeFontrey Richardson


spent most of the evening
dodging the fast moves of
the garnet's defense. Ponder
competed 12 of 19 passes for
140 yards, while Richardson
completed 11 of 25 for 130
yards and the defense lim-
ited to the running game to
a minus seven yards.
Coach Bobby Bowden


told reporters that the soph-
omore quarterbacks just did
not seem to be able to plant
their feet on the ground be-
cause of the impressive de-
fense.

Preston Parker scored
a touchdown on a 20-yard
screen pass from Ponder


and Matt Dunham caught
a 1-yard scoring throw from
Richardson. Freshman Tai-
wan Easterling was the lead
on the offensive side of the
game by catching five passes
for 81 yards and a 20 -yard,
one-handed grab for a TD.

Safety Myron Rolle led


the defense with five tackles
and an interception that he
returned for 63 yards. Rod
Roberts also had an inter-
ception, while Neefy Moffett
and Kendall Sniith each had
two of the 11 sacks on the
day.


Fishing the post spawn


By Scott Suggs
Post-spawn fishing for
bass can encompass every-
thing from hatched eggs to
shady summer haunts, but
it pretty much begins as
soon as the bass start leav-


ing their spawning beds and
runs throughout the sum-
mer. Though sonie anglers
love this time of year and
others hate it, once you get
post-spawn bass pinpointed
you could be in for some of


the best fishing of the year.
Just because the bass
have quit spawning doesn't
mean they've quit being
bass,, so some of the tac-
tics for spawning bass will
still work. One of my favor-


ite spawning baits is also
very effective during post
spawn. One of my favorites
is a Berkley Power Lizard
in green pumpkin, one of
the most productive bass
baits ever made. After the


.Q-

number practice to pose for a photo. Standing from L to R, Lillie Graber, Shala Cuchens, Emilee Anderson, Hassie Bigby,

spawn, I'll Carolina rig the
Power Lizard and fish it for
post-spawning bass in areas
where I expect to find the
fish coming off their beds.
Even when I'm fishing
offshore areas, I'll still fish
the lizard -- either Texas or
Carolina rigged -- to catch
bass during the rest of the
year. But if the post spawn
coincides with the shad
spawn, I'll look for some
shallow chunk rock or rip-
rap that will hold spawning
shad and target the preda-
tory bass nearby.
Sometimes post-spawn
bass will take to the shallows
or other staging areas until
they leave for their summer
hangouts. When I go after
post spawners in the shal-
lows I prefer a Berkley Pow-
er Tube jig. I'll rig the Power
Tube with a lightweight slip
sinker if I want a slow fall
to let bass see the bait lon-
ger. If the bass aren't feed-


ing actively, and I want to
trigger a reaction strike, I'll
use a heavier sinker like a
5/16- or a 3/8-ounce and fish
it around any type of cover
I can locate. I'm betting on
getting a strike as soon as
the bait hits the water and
begins to fall. If the bass
don't take the bait on the
fall, I'll pop the lure up one
or two times off the bottom.
If I still don't get a strike, I'll
reel the bait in and pitch to
another piece of cover.

Remember, the- post-
spawn period is much lon-
ger than the pre-spawn and
spawning periods, so learn-
ing how to fish this time
of year will ensure you're
catching fish even up into
the dog days of summer.
Scott Suggs is the 2007
FLW Champion and the
first angler in professional
bass fishing to win $1 mil-
lion in a single tournament.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 17,2008


FREEPORT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL students, above, enjoy outside celebration.
MR. MORSE- ADMINSTRATIVE ASSISTANT and Mrs. Jones, Principal, right pho-
to, admire Freeport Elementary School birthday cake.


Freeport Elementary School


Celebrates 20th Birthday


The 2007-08 school year
marks the 20th birthday
for Freeport Elementary
School at its current facil-
ity and site. The years have
been good to the school, and
its history of excellence at-
tests to that fact. During
the week of April 7-11, the
entire school participated in
activities to help celebrate
the school's birthday and ac-
complishments.


On Tuesday's Morning
Show, Mr. Wayne Miller,
former FES principal helped
Principal Pam Jones open a
time capsule. It was from
the school's 10th birthday
in 1997. They enjoyed see-
ing the items and reminisc-
ing about the past and how
much things had changed,
but not the school's reputa-
tion for high achievement.
Throughout the school ev-


eryone was able to watch
the event on classroom
televisions. To further get
in the birthday mood, bul-
letin boards were displayed
throughout the school pay-
ing tribute to 20 years of
success; many showcasing
student art work. Each day
the students and staff par-
ticipated in "20" minutes of
some special type of activ-
ity from reading, and walk-


ing, to listening to music in
class. Each grade level and
the special areas worked
on specific items to be put
in a time capsule and to be
opened in 10 years.

On Friday, April 11, a
reception was given to wel-
come back former employ-
ees and for current staff
to enjoy delicious refresh-
ments throughout the day.


That afternoon, -the entire
school body met on the play-
ground field to place their
items in a new time capsule
to be opened 10 years in the
future. It will be interest-
ing to see how much has
changed when the new box
is opened one day. The stu-
dents pledged to American
flags flapping in the spring
breeze and enthusiastical-
ly sang the school song.


Employees who had been at
the school since.it opened in
1987 were recognized along
with those who had also
been there in 1997 for the
10 year celebration.

Freeport Elementary has
more than lived up to its
reputation of being a school
that strives to make sure all
children- achieve and suc-
ceed.

PDL .blasts Stateline


On Sunday, April 13, the
PDL Tigers visited their
longtime rival, the State-
line Tigers for a rematch
game. The PDL Tigers were
greeted in front of about 300
Stateline fans. The game
was over early as the PDL
Tigers jumped out blast-
ing the ball for six runs in
the first and second inning.
Leading 'the charge was A.J.
Jackson with an inside the


park homerun in the fifth
inning. A.J. Jackson had
three hits and seven R.B.I.'s.
All the PDL Tigers' players
had at least one hit during
the game. Stateline was
held at bay with some great
pitching by Chad Thomas.
The final score was 18 PDL
and Stateline 7. This week's
scheduled game is at Doug-
lass Crossroads Park.

Gators in a District 1, Class
2A contest.
In a game that was pre-
dominantly a duel amongst
pitchers, Baker struck first
in the top of the fourth in-
ning. The Gators got an
infield single from catcher
Brandon Henderson, who
was able to advance to sec-
ond on a throwing error to
get into scoring position.
Henderson came around to
score on a single by the Ga-
tors' designated hitter to


give Baker a 1-0 lead.
The Pirates struggled at
the plate until the bottom
of the sixth inning as Brock
Bishop and Ryan Varner
singled to put a pair of run-
ners on against starter Kel-
lan Meeks. After a pitching
change, Jared Bump and
Jesse Paulk were able to
coax walks to force in a run
and tie the game at 1-1. An-
other Baker pitching change
was greeted by a Billy John-
son single to drive in a pair


of runs for PDL. Caylon
Friend finished off the scor-
ing with a 2-RBI single to

yields to


community


pressure


y LEAH STRATMANN
At a time when counties
across Florida are being
forced to tighten budgetary
belts to make up for the loss
of property tax revenue, the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil (TDC) voted last week to
discard more than $260,000
worth of signs after unre-
lenting pressure from .sev-
eral scenic corridor groups.
Chairman John Gillis
fired the first salvo of the
morning by saying the TDC
represents the community
and vision for the communi-
ty. "We have a mission to ac-
complish and we do not wish


to act outside of the inter-
ests of those doing business
here. We felt we were mak-
ing a decision representing
the community regarding
the signs and did our home-
work over the years. In the
end there was some sort of
gap between the TDC and
citizens and I think we need
to replace the signs along
30A," he said. The more
than 50 people met his com-
ment with a raucous round
of applause in attendance.
Gillis said he hoped the
signs could be salvaged and

Way



of



the



gun


By ALICIA LEONARD
In 1995 hurricane Opal
swept through our area
taking more than shingles
and tree limbs from some.
Dan Thomasek was one of
those people. When Thom-
asek evacuated for Opal, his
home was broken into and
burglars took items such
as his great-grandfather's
watches, rare coins and al-
most anything that could be
sold.
One of the items that was
stolen was a four-barrel Cop
brand derringer. The gun is


. THIS COP BRAND DERRINGER IS SPECIAL in that it
has four barrels and holds .38 Special or .357 ammunition
and was returned after being stolen over 12 years ago.


unique in that most Derrin-
gers only have two shots and
use .22 caliber bullets. This
gun has four barrels and can
use .357 or .38 special am-
munition. It was recovered
and returned to the rightful
owner almost 13 years after
it was stolen, unfired and
without a scratch.
"If I could have anything
returned, I would have want-
ed this. My wife originally
bought it for me as a special
gift in 1986 in Bennington,
Arkansas. She passed away
in 1995 as well and her gift,


of this item to me was a spe-
cial memory for me. It was
never really meant to be
used as it's more of a collect-
able," said Thomasek.
Thomasek tried in vain
for years recover the sto-
len gun. He filed the neces-
sary paperwork with local
authorities, hired a private
investigator and spoke with
state representatives in
what he grew to believe was
quickly becoming a futile ef-
fort to get back the keep-

SCA plans to pretty up medians


By CHRIS MANSON
Board members from the
Scenic Corridor Association
(SCA) met Monday as presi-
dent Roger Hall and execu-
tive director Leigh Moore
unveiled plans for a beau-
tification project along the
medians of U.S. 98 in south
Walton County.
"This is truly paradise,
not just for the environment,
but the people," said Hall,
commending the SCA's past
efforts in setting guidelines
for signage and billboards
along U.S. 98. Now the SCA
plans to landscape the high-
way's medians from Mack
Bayou Road east to CR-
30A.
Bill Smith, the landscap-
ing architect for the beauti-
fication project, said the me-
dians would be lined with
"big masses of plant mate-
rial" and 12-to-14-foot tall


bald cypress trees. Smith
said the trees were chosen
because "in a hurricane, I've
never seen (one) blow down.
They're very durable."
Vicky Kitahara, repre-
senting District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows, said
the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) voted unanimously
for the landscape enhance-
ments and played a key
role in getting approval for
$600,000 in grants from
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
Hall told the board mem-
bers the landscaping was
the second step, the first
being funding for the proj-
ect. The grants require a
$185,000 match from the
community. So far, local
businesses and residents

HOOTING THE BREEZE


with Leah Stratmann


As a person who came
into my early maturity at a
time of great civil unrest in
this country over civil rights,
the war in Vietnam, equal
rights for women and a host
of other social ills many
still unsolved it would
never occur to me to suggest
people do not have a right to
express opinions. But some
signs? Really people? How
fortunate you must be.
First of all, as a direction-
ally-challenged individual,
I like to know where I am.
I've lived in this area for
13 years and I never knew
when I was in Blue Moun-
tain Beach until I saw Billie
and Justin Gaffrey's yard.
With a gun to my head, .1I
couldn't tell you where Dune
Allen Beach is, so I thought


the signs were nice. Street
numbers are impossible to
see, so anything giving a
driver a clue as to location is
a plus in my book.
Also it is hard for me to
accept that some very nice
signs littered the landscape
more than the miles of tacky
garbage bins lining 30A or
all the signs clamoring "rent
me"D festooning this "sce-
nic" roadway. Please.
Where were these folks
when homes were being
built right to the edge of the
Timpoochee Trail? I hardy
think seeing one of these
signs is going to put some-
body off getting a good meal
and dining experience any-
where along this roadway,
but they could have aided in
preventing fender-benders


when people
stopped in
the road and
tried vain-
ly to see a
number on a
building.
I would
agree with
the dissent-
ers that the
signs are a
mite tall, .
and informa- .
tion on both
sides would
have made them more at-
tractive, but I just don't get
all the brouhaha over this
issue. Further, I am ap-
palled the Tourist Develop-
ment Council rolled over on
their backs and cried "un-
cle," thereby tossing away


more than a
quarter of a
million dol-
lars. Actu-
ally the price
tag was some
$275,000, as
Sonny Mares,
but it is r re veay aned
mean it could another
put to good $15,000 in
inc ideen-
Children's Votals" had
Network, whichbeen spent. I
guess this is
just chump
change to 30A residents,
but it is real money and
just because it didn't come
from property taxes, doesn't
mean it could not have been
put to good use. I think the
Children's Volunteer Health
Network, which was born in


south Walton County, would
consider a $275,000 dona-
tion a gift from God. Along
with all the wealth in that
end of the county, there are
a great many pockets of pov-
erty.
Now another huge sum of
money needs to be expend-
ed to get new signs pleas-
ing to the eyes of a minor-
ity of residents. Thousands
and thousands of people
live along this corridor, yet
fewer than 200 were able to
convince an unelected body
to toss away not only years
of work, but thousands upon
thousands of dollars. If the
Board of County Commis-
sioners does not insist the
naysayer groups come up
with money for replacement
signs themselves, they need


to be replaced right along
with the signs come election
time.
These kinds of antics fur-
ther fan the flames of dissen-
sion within the county also.
One would think the south
end would like to self-gov-
ern, since it is clear county
coffers enjoy huge sums of
tax dollars from the McMan-
sions built in the area, but it
ain't going to happen and a
lot of tax dollars land in the
pot from north end residents
as well. The "us" and "them"
mentality is alive and well
and the action taken by the
TDC will not help to bridge
the divide.
Think I'm full of it? Tell
me why at leahwrites@
gmail.com. But be brave and
also identify yourself.

Short agenda for planning commission


By LEAH STRATMANN

It was a short agenda for
the meeting .of the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion last week and business
was dispensed within an
hour.
Representing Alys Beach,
attorney Gary Vorbeck
came before the commission
seeking a change to one of
the area under the Planned
Unit Development (PUD)
umbrella. He asked that a
new zoning area with new
setbacks be created and that
a portion of the 158-acre site
be designated under the new
zoning. The architects of
Alys Beach want to add an
urban general special gulf-
front zone to the neighbor-
hood preservation area and
traditional neighborhood
development area.
Marie Anne Khoury-Vote,
one of architects of Alys
Beach explained she has
been working on the proj-
ect for the last four years.
"The buildings are oriented
north-south to allow the sea
breezes to reach all the hous-
es. It is now time to develop
the gulf-front homes with
lots designed in an irregular
manner with the houses ori-
ented with short faces to the
gulf preserving the views
into perpetuity for houses
in the third and fourth tiers
back from the gulf. We want
to be allowed to designate
this area as special gulf-
front zoning. The main de-
viation is we are asking for
is zero setbacks for some of
the lots, but the maximum
build able footprints are pre-
scribed on each lot. We want
the breezes and sunlight to
filter back to the entire com-
munity. The area is un-plat-
ted as yet," she explained.
"When you go to changing
setbacks, that rings a bell
for us," said Commissioner
Tom Terrell. "Once it leaves


here with zero setbacks, we
don't look at it again."
Speaking. for the engi-
neering department, Greg
Graham said, "I was asked
to go on the record by Re-
gional Utilities who have
some concerns about this
project. Our code does not
have minimum right of way
widths. Our standard op-
erating procedure is that
40-feet is needed. The gas
and fiber optics are basically
right on the right-of-way line
making it difficult to service
those areas. Okaloosa Gas
has some concerns also re-
lating to the right-of-way.
"I think the horse was
let out of the barn when
the original urban concept
was. approved. The ques-
tion should have been asked
back then by the Technical
Review Committee (TRC),
but now they are asking to
reduce it even more. Region-
al Utilities has not said this
can't be worked through, but
they wanted its concerns to
be made known The, code
gives the county engineer
the ultimate responsibil-
ity for determining right of
way width. This is an area
of concern by Regional Utili-
ties they would like to have
the ability to address. Po-
tentially everything can be
worked out, but it won't be
easy if utility work needs to
be done in a 20-foot corridor,
however Regional Utilities
and Okaloosa Gas might be
able to work something out,"
he concluded.
The applicants indicated
they have worked closely
with the utility companies
to make this work. Ter-
rell commented that even
though it is a private drive
the county still has over-
sight. The applicants point-
ed out that the change does
not alter the density and all
lots are single-family lots.
In the end, the planning de-


apartment said that without
evidence to the contrary, the
request. meets the compre-
hensive code. Commissioner
Susan Horn commented
that it seems sensible to go
forward with the plan pro-
vided the utility issues can
be worked out.
"What I like about it is
the unique design," said
Commissioner Randy Gard-
ner.
Terrell said, "I don't think
anyone on the planning
commission has any prob-
lem with Alys Beach. They
have done fine work envi-
ronmentally and everything
else." A motion was made
and passed by all to approve
the request, pending work;
ing out details with utility
companies.
Two other requests were
dispensed of without public
comment. A major develop-
ment order application was
submitted by Karl Hazen
requesting a 180-foot mono-
pole -cel phone tower and
compound, to be erected. on
10 acres of. land located-on
the corner of Jolly Bay Road
and Fluffy Landing Road.
Speaking for the plan-
ning d' department, Jason
Bryan said there were a few
questions on whether or not
the applicant can use a dif-
ferent access to the site. He
noted the surface will be
gravel and overall the proj-
ect is consistent with the
Land Development Code
(LDC) and the Comprehen-
sive Plan. Sally Merrifeld
made a motion to grant the
request. It was seconded by
Hugh Marse and passed by
all.
Morgan Hurst, represent-
ing Buchanan and Harper
Engineering requested a
major development order
consisting of three build-
ings totaling 5,951 square

Attorney: Driftwood plat can't be rescinded


By DOTTY NIST

The county cannot re-
scind the plat for an interior
portion of the Driftwood sub-
division except by request of
the lot owners, according to
Mike Burke, Walton County
legal counsel.

Acceptance of a subdi-
vison plat is the final step
in the approval process for
subdivisions. Plat approval
is necessary prior to lots be-
ing sold in newsubdivisions
or subdivision phases.
Burke reported to the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioner
(BCC) on April 8 on the plat
matter. The commission had
previously directed him to
investigate whether the plat
could be vacated. That re-
quest followed a report from
Alan Osborne, a spokesman
for the Greater Driftwood
Estates Homeowners As-
sociation, which represents
owners of existing homes in
the perimeter portion of this
arrowhead-shaped Mack
Bayou-area subdivision.
In March, Osborne had
brought it to the attention
of the commission that lots


in a new phase of the sub-
division were being adver-
tised for sale as having all
infrastructure complete.
Stormwater infrastructure,
or alleged lack thereof, has
been a particular complaint
of Osborne and other own-
ers of existing homes in
Driftwood.
Osborne strongly dis-
agreed with the veracity of
the advertising statement.
In fact, earlier this year the
commission had directed
staff to investigate wheth-
er infrastructure had been
completed prior to home
construction beginning in
the new phase a number of
years ago. That investiga-
tion continues.
The issuance of building
permits has been suspended
by the county in the Drift-
wood subdivision since De-
cember 2007, when county
engineer Greg Graham had
reported that no final de-
velopment order inspection
by the county had been re-
quested by the developer to
verify whether infrastruc-
ture had been completed
prior to work beginning in
the interior phases.
Last month, Osborne


called for the commissioners
to suspend the final plat on
the new phase in question.
He argued that the plat be-
ing in place leads potential
buyers to believe that the
lots meet all county require-
ments.
"That is false," he stated.
At that time, District 5
Commissioner Cindy Mead-
ows had requested that
Burke look into the matter.
"I personally think the plat
should be suspended," she
said.
On April 8, Burke pro-
vided a partial update on
the situation, stating that
investigation by county en-
gineering staff continues. In
reviewing, as directed, the
Driftwood 2C plat, Burke
said he found that the final
plat was approved by the
county in 2006 for property
owner Olson & Associates,
and that the required let-
ter of credit was "properly
released" with all require-
ments applicable at that
time being met. "This has
actually been recorded,"
Burke said.
All that was lacking was
a final engineer's certifica-
tion; which was apparently


not a requirement at that
time, Burke told the com-
missioners.
There would be no way
to rescind or vacate the fi-
nal plat for the subdivision
phase unless owners of the
lots in that phase requested
it, Burke explained. He add-
ed that the lots are no lon-
ger owned by the original
purchasers but have now
been conveyed to new own-
ers, making any attempt to
vacate the plat an even big-
ger "hurdle,"
"This is not the end of it,"
Burke stated, adding that
the engineering investiga-
tions regarding the infra-
structure for the phase are
continuing.
Osborne raised an objec-
tion that 90 days ago the
county had promised that
the developer would be re-
quired to produce as-built
drawings within 30 days.
"Has he produced them?"
Osborne asked.
County engineer Greg
Graham reported that he
had in fact received as-builts
for a portion of the property,
which indicated that the in-
frastructure had not been
built exactly per the design


plans.
"The infrastructure is
there," Graham said, adding
that it is "not 100 percent."
Graham said he is gather-
ing information on drainage
problems in the subdivision,
doing scientific modeling
and researching solutions.
He said the developer is as-
sisting in the gathering of
information and has been
"very cooperative."
Osborne continued to
raise objections and com-
plain that his questions had
not been answered. He was
told by County Commission
Chair Larry Jones that he
had exceeded his allotted
time to speak on the mat-
ter.
"You'll answer in deposi-
tion, that'll be fine," Osborne
angrily responded as he left
the speaker's podium.
The Driftwood homeown-
ers are engaged in ongo-
ing litigation regarding the
county's closing many years
ago of an alternate access
road for their subdivision.
The subdivision currently
has one outlet, which is sub-
ject to flooding.
Osborne was allowed to
again address the matter of


the plat later as the meeting
progressed. He again urged
the BCC to remove the plat
"because it hasn't met your
requirements."
"How easy would it be
to do the right thing?" he
asked.
Meadows responded that
the county still does not
know whether the infra-
structure that was installed
was "what they said they
were going to install."

. At the end of the meeting,
Burke reported disappoint-
ing results on one drainage
solution that the county was
seeking in the subdivision.
The county had offered a
$25,000 payment to the own-
ers of a Buck Road property
for a drainage easement.
This is for an area that the
county contends was a his-
toric drainage easement and
that the property owners
had blocked off, compound-
ing stormwater drainage
problems at Driftwood.
Burke said the owners de-
clined the county's $25,000
offer. It was his expectation
that the state would now
pursue the matter through
the courts.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD. BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 17,2008


It's been
in all the
news- .
papers and
in every
form of ,
m e d i a
throughout \
the region -
over the
past week. The
Seabreeze Jazz
Festival is pulling up
roots in Walton County
and taking the event to
Bay County in 2009.
On the heels of the 2008
festival, opening up April
17 at Gulf Place, the event
made headlines all
throughout the South when
they announced that the
2009 event would take
place at Pier Park in
Panama City Beach. After
10 years of calling Walton
County home to the
festival, the event has
outgrown all venues here in
Walton County.
The annual event brings
'in between 10,000 and
15,000 tourists to the area.
That meant millions of
dollars for the local
economy and heads in beds
in hotel rooms, condos and
homes throughout the
Emerald Coast. For the
past four years,,, it has
broken attendance records
and is still today the best-
attended event in the
county.

Performers like Brian
Culbertson, Mindi Abair,
Peter White, Nick Colione,
the Sax Pack, Joyce
Cooling, Dave Koz, Kim
Waters, Jeff Golub, Rafe
Gomez, Matt Marshak,
Nyee Moses, Steve Cole,
Sean Dietrich, Wayman
Tisdale, Slim Man and
Bonafide, Jay Wagner and
many more, will grace the
stage for the last
performance in Walton
County this coming
weekend. Events have been
scheduled throughout the
week at various locations,
with the Thursday and
Friday night concerts and
the all-day Saturday and
Sunday concerts taking
place at Gulf Place.
Not only has the

Seabreeze Jazz Festival
had an enormous economic
impact on Walton County,
it has also put the county
on the map with tourists,
performers, vendors, trade
magazines, the press and
with numerous record
companies and radio
stations from all over the
world. Tickets are sold to
concert-goers from across
the nation, as well as
Canada, France, Germany,
South America, Mexico and
Australia,
Said to be the second
largest jazz festival (just
behind the largest in
Catalina Island, CA.) the
smooth jazz festival
annually brings some of the
top smooth jazz artists in
the world to the sandy
beaches and pristine waters
of Walton County. For more
than a decade, tourists and
locals have enjoyed an
array of smooth jazz
entertainment that they
would have otherwise had
to travel to New York,
London, Los Angeles or
Miami to see and hear.
This weekend's show has
been designed to celebrate
the event's 10th year
anniversary, while at the
same time say farewell to
the place that. it has called
home for more than a
decade. Numerous events
including after-parties, a
celebrity golf tournament, a
free concert on Thursday
evening, the Friday evening
concert and then special
guest appearances and
performances by numerous
smooth jazz artist, have
been scheduled and tickets
are selling out quickly.
For many tourists,
moving the event to Pier
Park in Panama City
means they will simply
make their way and
reservations to the new
venue. For locals, it is a
crushing blow, not only to


t h e
economy,
Sbut to the
T image and
- IIp S publicity
this area
h a s
received
.- t .jL1 t from the
event every
year. The
move has
caused some confusion on
why the festival is leaving
the county. It is due mainly
to the issue of room at the
concert venues.
Currently the smooth
jazz event is held at Gulf
Place, and will return this
year to the Gulf Place
events lawn for its final
Walton County
appearance. The venue
served well for a few years
ago before vendors were
added and VIP areas were
required. More sound,
lighting and equipment
rentals and moving trucks
were needed on site, more
food vendors were being
sought to fill the dining
needs of ticket holders, and
more and more people were
learning of the festival and
wanting to get a ticket to
the shows that usually sold
out weeks prior to the
event. Pier Park is the
largest event venue in
Walton, Okaloosa and Bay
counties and hundreds of
rooms and accommodations
are located just across the
road from the park, along
with numerous shops and a
brand new shopping mecca.
The venue seems to be the
perfect match for the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival
and all those involved.

Radio WSBZ and vendor
coordinator, Hilltop
Productions, met with
officials of Pier Park, the
management group and the
department of parks and
recreation, and the offer
was made to them for the
event to be relocated to Bay
County. More about the
new venue, accom-
modations, dining, shop-
ping and details about next
year's festival, will be
announced at this
weekend's jazz festival.

about this year's event, or
for ticket reservations, call

Productions is currently
seeking vendors for the
2008 West Indies Markets,
taking place every second
weekend from May until
August.

made, hand-crafted and

sake," as Thomasek calls it.
"I had given up," Thom-
asek chuckles, "and then, I
got a call from the sheriffs
office." Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) Investi-
gator Stephen Sunday got
to deliver the good news to
Thomasek. "I was very ex-
cited when I learned about
the weapon being turned in.
I knew Mr. Tomasek was go-
ing to be happy. When he re-
turned my call, I could just
tell it in his voice he was ex-
tremely pleased to know it
was going to be returned to
him. It's not every day you


get to return property to a
victim which was stolen 12
years ago. It's kind of rare."
Thomasek had nothing
but praise for Sunday and
the WCSO in their recovery
of the gun. "I didn't really
want to call attention to my-
self. I'm a homeowner here
and I wanted to let people
who have helped in its re-
covery know how much I
appreciate what a good job
Sheriff Johnson, Investiga-
tor Sunday and everyone in-
volved have done in getting
my property back. They did
it in a very non-self- gratify-

this suggestions saying,
"Any blue signs on 30A
should come down."
"We need to leave up the
signs necessary to do busi-
ness, but a time frame must
be made," commented board
member Ken Morris.
Crawford refused to mod-
ify his motion, but the mo-
tion failed to pass, opening
the way for a new motion
by Brown to remove the big
blue community signs but to
leave the wayfinding signs
and adjust them to proper
heights as a temporary
measure. This motion was
passed.
Mares told the assembled
crowd the TDC must sub-
mit a budget to the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) by
May 16 to ensure there
is funding for new signs.
Brown pointed out the TDC
has already funded the
signs and wanted some firm
numbers from Rauschkolb
on how much money might
be forthcoming from opposi-
tion groups. This question
went unanswered, although
Rauschkolb said the groups
are prepared to raise funds
for new signs.
"We slid under the door
in funding for these signs
and we may well be in viola-
tion of the law," said board
member Mike Stange. In ad-
dition to the wayfinding and
community signs, the TDC
has advanced $90,000 for
the Timpoochee signs. "The
task is to find the money,"
Gillis observed.
Four cents of each dol-
lar spent on short-term
rentals such as condos or
hotel rooms is funneled to
the coffers of the TDC. The
fourth cent is earmarked for
new product development
and the signs were deemed
proper use of these funds in
helping the TDC to brand
the "Beaches of South Wal-
ton" as a destination.
TDC members are ap-
pointed by other TDC mem-
bers and each of the people
filling the nine positions
represent some part of the
tourist industry and must
reside in Walton County.
"According to our re-
search, 92 percent of the visi-
tors find the signs very help-
ful," said Tracy Louthain,
public relations spokesman
for the TDC.
In the end it will be the
BCC making the final vote
on the matter since in effect
they hold the purse strings.
The Herald called each of
the commissioners to see if
they had heard from their
constituents and how a fu-
ture vote might go.
Commissioner Kenneth
Pridgen was unaware of
the TDC vote to. remove the
signs, but when informed
said, "The TDC hasn't even
talked to us about what they
are doing. I'm assuming the
decision of the TDC has
to come back to the BCC.

and figures I can't say. I
will wait and make my de-
cision when everything is
presented to me and I hope
they will have a plan on how
to use the signs. I think the
groups are planning to help
fund the new signs which is
a step in the right direction,
commented Commissioner
Sara Commander. "People
should understand it is not
ad valorem money, but it
is tax money. The sad part
of this is it was so long be-
tween when the signs were
presented to the public and
when they were put up."
Likewise Commissioner
Cindy Meadows is unsure
of how things will go. "I
don't really know. The TDC
board decided to purchase
the signs and has now de-
cided to remove them and
use them elsewhere. I would
think the BCC would honor
the wishes of the TDC and
not overturn the decision,
however we do have to ap-
prove future budgets and
this issue has not come be-
fore us yet," she said.
A call to Commissioner
Brannon was not returned,
and Jones declined to com-
ment.
On April 10, Mares sent
an email to each of the com-
missioners, saying in part
the TDC the board voted
to take down the wayfind-
ing signs along CR-30A and
the connector roads leading
to CR-30A from U.S. 98:
"This action was pre-
cipitated by the strong and
overwhelming outcry of dis-
sent about the signs by citi-
zens representing groups
identified with Friends of the
Timpoochee Trail, Friends
of 30A, South Walton Com-
munity Council, Scenic 30A
Corridor, and the Scenic
Pride Initiative. In addition
we received personal letters
from the developers of Sea-
side, Alys Beach, WaterCol-
or, and WaterSound telling
us they wanted to opt-out of
our sign program.
"Our board wants the di-
rectional signs on the con-
nector roads to stay up to
assist our visitors until a
new plan is adopted in co-
operation with the above
groups. We would immedi-
ately begin the removal of
the "community" signs along
30A, and the "directional"
signs on 30A with the excep-
tion of a few strategically lo-
cated.
"The TDC will place the
signs in our maintenance
yard where they will be se-
cure as we look for alternate
ways to use the signs or bro-
ker them to other organiza-
tions.
"It is my understanding
we do not need to request
this action be placed on the
agenda for the upcoming
BCC meeting, and that we
may begin the removal pro-
cess in accordance with the
action of the TDC. Please let
me know if this meets with
the approval of the Board of
County Commissioners."


would be beautified by the
end of 2008 depending on
contractor schedules.
"Good things are happen-
ing in our area," said Moore,
adding that the SCA itself
had donated $25,000. She
said "responsible growth"
would continue to benefit
south Walton County's resi-
dents, businesses, and visi-
tors.


give us and that makes our
job harder. If you have prop-
erty that doesn't have a se-
rial number, then I suggest
to buy you an engraver and
mark the property in some
unique manner, maybe with
your name, or something
that you would be able to
identify and know that that
is your property." said Sun-
day
How did Sunday feel
about being able to close the
case after 12 years?
"It makes you feel real good
to be able to return property
which meant a lot to a vic-
tim. I am very happy for Mr.
Tomasek."
Thomasek agrees. "It's
my keepsake and I'm glad to
have it home again."
