SGT. JOE PORTER oversees a deputy as they learn to switch eyes behind objects in order
to shoot from behind cover.



Training gives deputies


real-life edge


By ALICIA LEONARD
"If you can see them,
they can see you," explains
Sgt. Andy Casavant, of the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice (WCSO), in the opening
minutes of the "concealed
live-fire training exercise"
last week.
The exercise drew 51 dep-
uties to test their mettle by
shooting live ammunition
from around and behind ob-
jects at targets. Items like
mailboxes, fire hydrants
and other objects that could
be found on the street, pro-
vided the deputies with an
idea of what one might do
to stay alive and take out a
target in a crisis situation.
State requirements are
only 40 hours of training per


four years or 10 hours every
year. "Safety always comes
first and that comes from
training. Our force gets two.
and a half times the train-
ing hours mandated by the
state," said Casavant.'
"Before we ever get onto
the range, like today, 'we
have class time and then we
do a dry or inert fire run and
then move onto live ammo.
It's very important to the
learning process for a dep-
uty to be able to take what
they learn from the class
room into actual situations
and put that knowledge to
use," said Casavant.
Some deputies enjoyed
the range activity so much it
made them want to become
even more proficient with


their firearms. "Many of the
deputies taking part in the
exercise decided they want--
ed even more practice time
on their own and approached
Sheriff Ralph Johnson about
opening the range all the
time and he thought it was
a great idea, so our exercise
helped themnot only on the
street, but made them want
to improve their shooting
skills in courses such as this
one," Casavant explained.
The WCSO will also be
holding a level-two course
on May 10 at the DeFuniak
Springs range for private
citizens wanting to learn
more about home protection
and the use of firearms.


SGT. ANDY CASAVANT prepares WCSO deputies for the exercise they are about to un-
dertake on the firing range.


First Baptist


Church gets


approval for


K-5 school


By ALICIA LEONARD
.The DeFuniak Springs
Planning Board unani-
mously approved a special
request to start a Christian
school in the existing First
Baptist Church Facility. The
DeFuniak Springs City Hall
was filled to standing-room
only with supporters of the
request and a few opponents
as well. ,
Mention of the meet-
ing first appeared during
the April 7 planning board
meeting. Per minutes from
that meeting, James Cof-
field, church pastor Jerry
Chumley and Jack Huggins
approached the planning
board with the special ap-
proval request and the pub-
lic hearing date was set for
May 5.


Planning board mem-
ber Jim Harman recused
himself from the vote at
both meetings due to be-
ing a member of the First
Baptist Church subcommit-
tee on the school. A second
planning board member,
Ryan Douglas, responded
to a series of question from
Clay Adkinson, represent-
ing Adkinson Law Firm,
and disclosed that he was a
member of the church, but
he was not a member of the
subcommittee planning the
school. After further ques-
tioning, Douglass told the
crowd that his mother had
been hired to be a teacher at
the new school, but they had
not discussed the school.

CHAIN REACTION ACCIDENT injures four.


Five-car accident

hospitalizes four


By BRUCE COLLIER
An accident character-
ized as a "chain reaction"
on Hwy. 83 just north of
DeFuniak Springs sent four
people to an area hospital
and medical center. The ac-
cident took place at around
11:15 a.m. on Tuesday, May
5. DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department's Sgt. Rick
Boblitt said the accident ap-
pears to have been initiated
when a northbound truck
struck the rear of a car that
was stopped in the north-
bound lane. The car struck
was at the end of a line
of several other vehicles,
all northbound, that had
Topped behind a vehicle at-
tempting to turn left. The
truck reportedly had topped
the hill near the West Flor-
ida Farmers Co-Op building
and saw the stopped cars,


but was unable to come to a
halt in time.
The car struck from
behind spun around and
moved into the southbound
lane, where it collided with
a southbound vehicle. Other
cars in the stopped line re-
portedly also sustained dam-
age. Traffic was delayed in
both directions for one hour
while the DeFuniak Springs
Fire department used the
jaws of life to extract the
driver from one of the ve-
hicles. Four people were
transported to receive medi-
cal treatment - two were
airlifted to Sacred Heart
Hospital in Pensacola and
two taken by ambulance to
Healthmark Regional Medi-
cal Center. All were report-
edly conscious and alert at
the time of transport. Boblitt
said that the accident re-
mains under investigation.

Caring for Kids Day


PROJECT CHILDSAFE offers free gun locks and safety material to all gun owners, in
an effort to protect children from accidents with firearms.




Sheriff participates


in Project ChildSafe


Project ChildSafe is a
nationwide firearm safety
education program devel-
oped by the National Shoot-
ing Sports Foundation that
receives funding through a
United States Department
of Justice grant and the fire-
arm industry.

Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSOO an-
nounces the arrival of 600
safety kits through Project
ChildSafe, containing gun
locks. The kits are avail-
able free of charge to lo-
cal residents. Gun owners
who request a safety kit
will receive it "no questions


asked." WCSO said if even
one accident or death can be
prevented through Project
ChildSafe, the program will
have been worth the effort.
Everyone who owns a fire-
arm is encouraged to store it
in a location inaccessible to
children or other unauthor-
ized persons. Ammunition
should be stored in a sepa-
rate location. A key goal of
the program is to prevent a
loaded firearm from being
left lying around the house
where a child could pick it
up and play with it.
The firearm safety bro-
chure that is included with
the gun lock is just as impor-


tant as the lock itself. It ex-
plains the importance of safe
handling and secure firearm
storage in the home. WCSO
encourages everyone to read
it and follow its advice.

Gun owners can pick up
a gun lock by going to the
Sheriffs office located at 752
Triple G Road, DeFuniak
Springs (892-8186), or the
Santa Rosa Beach Substa-
tion (267-2000). Anyone
with questions or who needs
further information about
Project ChildSafe should go
online to the program's Web
site, www.projectchildsafe.

painful memories of self-
discovery, as Marmee and
Aunt March guided them
through issues of indepen-
dence, romance and virtues.
The movie will be shown
on Sunday, May 18, at 2 p.m.
at the historic Chautauqua
Building on Circle Drive in
DeFuniak Springs. Admis-
sion is free and everyone is


invited for an old-fashioned
matinee appropriate for all
ages. An adult must accom-
pany all children under the

stallation of a much-needed
elevator in the Chautauqua
Building.

Editor's comment


Surprise, surprise,


surprise!

ByRONKELLEY


Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a lo-
comotive, able to leap tall news stands in a single bound...
it's the Herald-Breeze, man!
Disguised as a mild-mannered Internet Web site for a
major weekly newspaper, Herald-Breeze fights a never-
ending battle for Truth, Justice and The American Way.
How's that for a splashy opening? I've been waiting for
some time to make this announcement, so I'm determined
to enjoy myself.
The DeFuniak Springs Herald and The Beach Breeze
have a new online home and it's currently at a computer
near you. Simply enter www.defuniakherald.com into your
browser, hit enter and you are there.
The new Web site has all the news, photos and infor-
mation you need and none of the useless clutter you wish
you could avoid on other sites, You'll find photographs,
links to government and civic organizations, as well as the
week's headlines and top stories. The classified are there,
along with legals. We've even started the long process of
installing news from past issues into an archive. Viewers
can check the weather, comment on the news, search the
news for specific words or topics, submit letters to the edi-
tor, placeads or reach me or any of our reporters. During
hurricanes, tropical storms and other disasters, viewers
will be able to get up-to-the-minute reports on evacuation
routes, flood levels, shelters, road closures and other emer-
gency information. More pages, more opportunities to hear
from you and more surprises are already being planned.
Great Scott, Lois! This is amazing.
We've also added some new things in the pages of The
Beach Breeze, without taking away a single thing. There's
a new health column called Fit & Healthy by fitness train-
er Geoff Kalmbach. It's filled with information about fit-
ness, exercise and diets. We now publish in-house reviews
of books, movies the latest music releases - from country
to hip-hop - as well as a new column with Leah Stratmann
called Shooting The Breeze. Just to illustrate how things
that go around, come around, back in the 1970s, Herald-
Breeze co-publisher Merle Woodham did a weekly column
with the very same name.
Not everything is available online. After all, we're a
newspaper first and we want you to have your own com-
plete copy, either from a news stand or as a continuing
subscriber. Therefore, online viewer's will miss some of the
news stories, many of the photographs, all of the letters
and editorials, all of the social events and community cal-
endar listings, the church and religious news, the arrest
report, Ask Auntie Em, The Beach Scene, Voices, most of
the sports and school news. To get all of those things, you
still have to plunk down two quarters at the news stand or
call us and we'll send it to you.
Here's what you will get - whether it's our printed is-
sue or our online edition - the most accurate, dependable
and comprehensive news about Walton County, from the
beaches to the state line. We've been doing this for the last
120 years and we know a little something about it.
Pick up a fresh copy today and get one for a friend. I
think you'll agree that whether'we're online or in your
hands, the DeFuniak Herald and The Beach Breeze is not
just the best weekly newspaper in the Panhandle, why, it's
positively...well, Super, man.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Editor:
Enjoy it, people. Put aside, for the moment, your petty
political and religious prejudices. You are witnesses to his-
tory. For the first time ever there is going to be a person
of color or a female candidate for President of the United
States. The time of separate water fountains and schools
- is not so far behind us that much of the electorate does not
remember. The time of women walking, at least elliptical-
ly, three paces behind their husband still exists in recent
memory. Celebrate that in these nascent days of the 21st
- century, this country grows ever closer to the idea of the
equality of all people. We still have many who have prob-
lems with the concept. Let the hate-mongers drown in the
detritus of their own spew. All the rest of us should cel-
" ebrate.

Editor,
George Bush's economic stimulus package 'will give in-
dividuals who have an income between $3,000 and $75,000
check amounts of $300 to $600, according to www.jbs.org/.
Married taxpayers who earn up to $150,000 will receive
$1,200. Included in this package is also a $300-per-child
tax credit. According to CNNMoney.com, "The package also
includes tax breaks for equipment purchases by businesses,
as well as payments to disabled veterans and some senior
citizens."
Critics of the measure included congressman and pres-
idential candidate Ron Paul. In his weekly column, Paul
stated: "I am in favor of taxpayers getting some of their
money back. However, temporary tax cuts and one-time re-
bates will not 'fix' the economy. What we desperately need
right now is real deep significant tax cuts that are enabled
by big spending cuts and reduction of government waste
that is so rampant. Unfortunately, too many in Washington
still believe we can spend our way into prosperity, which
does not work and never has."
I agree. The government is merely returning money that
was ours to start with. Instead Congress should abolish the
Marxist Progressive Income Tax by repealing the Sixteenth
Amendment and return us to the freedom to invest in un-
regulated production for prosperity.

Editor:
When U.S. citizens make contracts for goods, services,
or other reasons, each party to the contract is expected to
abide by it. However, there is one contract that seriously
affects every citizen, but few pay attention to it. It is the
U.S. Constitution, a contract between our citizens and the
federal government.
The original 13 states established our federal govern-
ment with very limited powers, primarily to repel inva-
sions. Individual states were responsible for niost govern-
ment actions. If a state became too oppressive, people could
simply move to another state.
The Constitution authorizes only Congress to make federal
laws. Hence, a Supreme Court decision or a presidential
Executive Order cannot become a law. Yet, these decisions
' " and orders have been used as laws.
In the more than 200 years that our Constitution has
been in effect, only 27 amendments have been ratified. To-
day, those who want to make a change, simply circumvent
the Constitution. There is no constitutional power to have
federal involvement in education, housing, health, foreign
aid, and many other activities. Therefore, about 80 percent
of what the federal government does is unconstitutional.
See www.thenewamerican.com for details.
We are living in a partial police state because the feds
do not obey our Constitution. Unless enough of our citizens
demand that the feds abide by the Constitution, we soon
will be living in a total police state.

Archeological data to be added to historical overlay


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Walton County Geo-
graphic Information Sys-
tem (GIS) department along
with the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) have been
working on a historical
overlay of Walton County
for approximately one year.
The initiative is an effort by
the commissioners as well
as the community at large
to acknowledge and record
historically significant sites
for posterity.
"This is an opportunity to
save something that could
be lost for all time." said Dis-
trict 1 County Commission-
er Scott Brannon. "Eventu-
ally this information will be
put into a'form that can be
utilized by the school sys-


tem and the general public
for educational purposes."
GIS employees have al-
ready recorded the sites of
old schools in the county
along with old roadways,
waterways, cemeteries and
churches.
"We are happy to work
with the BCC on this histor-
ical overlay initiative," said
GIS Deputy Manager Kevin
Laird. "We will provide any
technical support that we
have on hand."
The effort to add archeo-
logical sites to the overlay
was spearheaded by Bran-
non at the March 25 regular
BCC meeting. During that
meeting Brannon requested
approval to allow Walton
County Grants Coordina-
tor Angie Biddle the ability
to research and apply for


archaeological grants. The
grants could aid in the pres-
ervation of the history and
heritage of Walton County.
His request was unanimous-
ly approved.
Brannon's interest in
the archaeological sites
was piqued when he came
across a University of West
Florida Archeological Sur-
vey of the county completed
in May of 2000 for a previ-
ous BCC board. The exhaus-
tive report deals primarily
with sites in the interior of
the county. Project archae-
ologists investigated 81 ar-
chaeological occurrences.
The sites contain evidence of
human populations ranging
from 1000 B.C. to the pres-
ent. Several old mills were
discovered and- recorded as
part of the report. A vast


majority of the sites were
deemed potentially signifi-
cant in the report, with 10
being definitely significant.


"This is an attempt to
get history out of the shoe-
box in Walton County," said
Brannon. "We can run this


effort to preserve the past
in tandem with the current
historical overlay initia-
tive."


G' day, DeFuniak


By ALICIA LEONARD
It was an unusual sight
in the skies of DeFuniak
Springs, to say the least.
Many driving past the De-
Funiak Springs Municipal
Airport, slowing to get a
look, might have agreed.
High Degree Operations,
sponsored - and contracted
by Outback restaurants,
landed at the local airport
on their way to Houston.
When winds kicked up the
next morning past 30 knots,


the blimp was forced to stay
grounded for safety reasons
and the Herald got to know
a little more about the blimp
business.
Devin Jaffrey said it's all
in a day's work, "We travel
to towns 365 days a year. We
just left Savannah, GA, and
can usually travel 300-400
miles a day. We have a
crew of 14, two pilots .and a
ground crew that follows the
blimp on the road."
Jaffrey says the best part


AIRPORT @ROUND CREWS GET a better look at the
Outback blimp that visited the DFS municipal airport this
past week. (Photo by Alicia Leonard)


of the job is all the places the
crew gets to visit, "We meet
the nicest people, eat at'all
the little restaurants off the
beaten path and get to visit
great small airports like the
one you have here. This is
much more a lifestyle than
just a job," he said with a
smile.

On Monday, April 28,
2008, bus drivers for the'
Walton County School Dis-
trict arrived at the district
transportation department
to find the bus tires flat.
Someone had trespassed
on district property and let
the air out of the bus tires.
It took several hours and
additional crew to put air in
the tires. While transporta-
tion officials were hurry-
ing to air tires and' get the
bus in route, students were
waiting at their designated
bus stops some for as long as
one and half hours. Parents
were late to work.
"The trickle down effect
of this prank cost the dis-
trict, cost local employers,
and cost students learning
time," said Supt. Carlene
Anderson. "It is important
for individuals to realize
that pranks on school prop-
erty are a crime because
they are actually trespass-
ing on the property. They
can be prosecuted."
On Monday afternoon,
Supt. Anderson released the
following statement to all
students:
"School pranks committed
on district owned property
including school buildings,
grounds, or equipment will
not be considered pranks.
Students entering school
buildings or other district
property after hours without
permission or supervision of
a district employee will be
considered as . committing
trespass or burglary.
"Be advised that Walton
County School District will
not tolerate school pranks,
regardless of the magni-
tude, and will file charges
again students who enter or
damage buildings, offices, or
other property of the school
district.
"There is much to be lost

The heart to be a nurse


By ALICIA LEONARD
In recognition of National
Nurses Week May 6-12, the
Herald reached out to nurs-
es in our area to celebrate
those who provide care and
comfort to people in health
and illness.
Kathryn Barley, R.N.,


B.S.N., senior community
health nursing director for
the Walton County Health
Department, shared a little
wisdom about the art of
nursing, what her job en-
tails, and why people cel-
ebrate Nurses Week. "This
is a chance for the public to


DAWN COOPER, L.P.N., provides care to those who are
staying with the Walton County corrections system.


CINDY McKINLEY, executive director of Stanley House,
said nursing gives the opportunity to care for others as well
as take care of one's self.


have an opportunity to see
that there are many facets
of nursing; everything from
hospital to most anywhere.
Nursing is an occupation
that has long struggled with
in adequate numbers of
people interested in the pro-
fession. Not everyone is cut
out to be a nurse, but there
*are so many kinds of nurs-
es that most nurses will be
able to find a place that they
really love. Most nurses
need to know that they will
feel needed and appreciated
most every day that they go
to work and that you will go
home feeling very fortunate
and blessed because so many
have less than 'I' have."
Connie Arnold has been a
nurse for over 25 years. She
now looks over the students
at Walton High School and
Vears many hats. She said,
"Much of my time as a school
nurse involves boo-boos.
First aid is a big part of an
average day, but we also
have many students with
complicated medical issues
that require medical man-
agement. Keeping up with
health records on each stu-
dent in your school can be a
challenge because students
move around, coming and
going frequently. Assisting
parents/guardians in the
,care of their child. You also
fill the role of mom, friend,
counselor and mentor, all of
which can be very reward-
ing."
Norrie Chumley, R.N.,
B.S.N., is the practical
nursing director at Walton
Career Development Cen-
ter (WCDC). Entrusted to
train those who are just
entering the field, Chum-
ley said with the important
role nurses play in everyday
life, it's a privilege, to rec-
ognize their contributions
and thank them for their ef-
fort. Chumley said it takes
a' special person to become
a nurse, "Nursing is chal-
lenging, demanding yet: r,
warding profession. Those
persons interested in pur-
suing nursing as a career
need to be caring, compas-
sionate individuals devoted
to improving and promoting
the health of all individuals.
With a predicted continu-
ing nursing shortage in the
state and nationwide, jobs


will be readily available."
Financial independence
and the ability to care for
others are two points Cindy
McKinley, R.N. and execu-
tive director at the Stanley
House assisted-living facil-
ity, thinks are important to
those thinking of a career in
nursing. McKinley has been
a nurse for almost 30 years.
"Nursing gives those who
enter the field the ability
to almost pick and choose
their jobs of choice. Nurses
need a big heart and to re-
ally care about people, but
it also gives many the abil-
ity to care for themselves as
well."
Not all nurses work in
hospitals or doctors offices,
as in the case of Dawn Coo-
per, director of nursing at
the Walton County jail. Coo-
per helps inmates with any
medical issues they may
have and says that it's a
great job. "Providing care in
a setting such as corrections
is not so different from any
other nursing job. I'm nev-
er afraid and our benefits
and working conditions are
great. You certainly have to
have a heart and care about
others to be a nurse. Our
inmates who have illnesses
need care just like any other
patients and we take great
pride in our job and the care
we render."
One of the toughest and
most rewarding jobs in the
field of nursing may very
well be hospice care. Hospice
nurses provide families and
patients a calm knowledge-
able support system when
a family member has been

diagnosed with an irrepa-
rable condition. "Nursing is
intrinsic; it comes from the
heart," said Rita Preston,
R.N., clinical manager for
Covenant Hospice. "A nurs-
ing career is very rewarding,
and there is a lot of flexibili-
ty. There are many different
kinds of nursing. In addition
to all of the patient care spe-
cialties, a nurse can go into
research, education, or even
teaching. Jobs are plentiful,
and all indicators show that
this profession will only con-
tinue to grow," Preston add-
ed.
Pat Dingess, R.N.,
C.H.P.N., director of branch
operations for Covenant
Hospice, Crestview, said,
"It's important to recog-
nize nurses for two rea-
sons: first, this isn't just a
career. It takes a passion
to be a nurse. You have to
have that passion because
this job requires that you
work beyond the normal 9-5
hours," Dingess continued.
"Second, because the field of
nursing is always trying .to
attract 'the best of the best,'
we need to publicize Nurses
Week so that we can honor
the dedication of our nurses,
and thus attract and recruit
outstanding young people
into the nursing profession.

Nurses are a group of dedi-

could choose, they choose to


work in a profession where
they sometimes sacrifice
nights, weekends, and holi-

Ganshot wounding investigated


THE GIRL SCOUTS of Freeport teamed up with Skinner Nursery to celebrate Earth Day
on April 19, 2008. The trees and plants were donated by Skinner Nursery. Steve Boretta
and his team taught the girls about planting trees and how to take care of them.


THE GIRLS that were able to participate (L-R) Madison Russell, Mira Odom, Lillian
Rodgers, Taylor Cometta, Valerie Anderson, Ashlynn Fannin, Olivia Rodgers, Candis Hol-
lier, Mersadies Fiegel, and Savanah Dailey.


THE GIRL SCOUTS chose the Pentecostal Church in
Freeport to thank them for allowing Daisy and Brownie
Troops to use their fellowship hall for their meetings.


"Cops on Top" set


for June 7 climb


up Lakewood


On Saturday, June 7,
2008 Cops on Top will be
having its annual Summit
for Heroes Memorial Climb
in honor of fallen -officers
killed in the line of duty. The
goal is to get as many law
enforcement professionals
reaching their state's high
point on the same day.

Lakewood, located in
Walton County, is the high-
est point in Florida. The
17-acre park is 25 miles
north of DeFuniak Springs
on U.S. 331 North, and is
345 feet above sea level. A
granite monument marks
the top of the hill, and is
surrounded by rolling farm-
lands and timberlands. The


county park has public re-
strooms, two picnic tables,
eight benches, and a pavil-
ion for an afternoon picnic.
This year's event will be
held on Saturday, June 7 at
approximately 10 a.m. Par-
ticipants should wear com-
fortable clothing and shoes,
because although the climb
is not very challenging, the
weather will be warm and
humid. Refreshments will
be served by Crime Stop-
pers of Walton County, Inc.
Anyone interested
in this project, or with ques-
tions about the Cops on Top
program, should visit their
website or contact Anna
LaCour, Community Rela-
tions, at (850) 892-8186.

low lout, and Dean's hard-
working mother. I speak to
her before the scene. "You're
Vera?" I ask, meaning her
character.
"No, I'm Irene," she an-
swers. I look at my script.
No Irene, just a Vera. We go
in to rehearse. Dean's char-
acter is called Darnell in my
script. After we rehearse,
I am told that Darnell is
now Dreese. There's also
a change with "you" and
"y'all." The original script
called for me and a whole
team to troop in. ,Now it's
just me and another guy.
So my line "Take off y'all
shoes" must now be "your
shoes." Not being Southern-
raised, I fluff it twice. Three
last-minute changes, can I
adjust? I did. At least I don't
have to clean up the kitchen
floor between every single
take. And I managed to stay
on the mats when exiting.
A train manages to .pass

is being shot. I hear Dean
mutter, "trains and dogs...."

night, it's a wrap for'the day.
Dean asks for a round of
applause from the crew for
those of us whose jobs are
done. It's a 2 1/2 hour drive
back to DeFuniak Springs.
The glamor of it all never
quite sank in, but it was
still more fun than staying
at home watching Westerns
on AMC.
I bet John Wayne never
had to make his own mud,
though.

In the early morning
hours of April 27, officers
from the DeFuniak Springs
Police (DFSPD) responded
to Healthmark Regional
ER's report of an individual
with a gunshot wound to his
leg. The victim, a 30 year-
old black male identified as
Timothy Wayne Sanders,
was found to be heavily se-
dated and could not be in-
terviewed. Another individ-
ual who reportedly picked
up Sanders and transported
him to the hospital said that
Sanders told her that he
had been riding his bicycle
on North Davis Lane when

incident

In the evening hours of
April 27, officers from the
DeFuniak Springs Police
(DFSPD) responded to 32
Myrtle Avenue, having re-
ceived a report of an indi-
vidual with a knife wound
to his shoulder. The victim
reportedly had left the scene
with another individual in
a gray van. No one at the
scene had actually seen the
stabbing or the Wound.
A be-on-lookout (BOLO)
was put out for a welfare
check of the alleged victim, a
38 year-old black male iden-
tified as Archie Holmes. The
alleged suspect, a 33 year-
old black male identified as
Collies Mathis, had fled the
scene and a BOLO was also
established for him. Hol-
.mes was later located and
transported to Healthmark
Regional E.R., where he
refused treatment. Exami-
nation revealed a one-inch
stab wound of undetermined
depth on his left shoulder,
which had already stopped
bleeding.
Holmes said that he did
not call the police because
he was going to handle it
himself. He also said that he
had gone to 32 Myrtle Ave-
nue to visit his father, who
lived there. Upon approach-
ing the handicap ramp to
the porch, Holmes said that
Mathis had approached him
and started swinging a filet
knife, striking Holmes in
the left shoulder. Holmes
said that he was able to get
away from Mathis and then
departed the scene.
Approximately seven
hours later, DFSPD was
advised that the suspect
(Mathis) had returned to 32
Myrtle Avenue. Police came
and arrested Mathis on a
charge of aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weapon
and transported him to the
Walton County Jail.

Demystifying MSBUs


Municipal Services Ben-
efit Units (MSBU) are of-
ten misunderstood as to
the hows and whys -they
are used. Walton County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
sat down with the Herald to
clarify their use.
"MSBUs are special as-
sessments that are used by
local government to provide
services within unincorpo-
rated areas of the county.
This is not a tax that is as-
sessed on the price of some-
one's home. First, it has to
be proven that whatever
that unincorporated part of
the community needs would
benefit from using the MSBU
system and then it would be
a flat rate charge to those in
that community."
MSBUs have to undergo
a process before ever reach-
ing their final stage with
unincorporated area resi-
dents being billed for im-
provements. A group called
Government Service Group
helps the county adhere to
all legalities concerning MS-
BUs.
"You have to show a ben-
efit and a formula to put
that benefit into action.
Once you find out a group is
interested in using MSBU's,
we have a community meet-
ing and ask what it is they
want, which range from re-
surfacing roads to structur-
al needs. We then send out
a straw ballot by finding ev-
ery property owner in that
area and ask if they want to
move forward with looking
at the possibility of using a
MSBU. If we get an over 51
percent favorable response
then we move onto the next
step.
"We then do preliminary
estimate of what these im-
provements will cost. We
then send out another ballot
telling the property owners
what each per rate lot will be
approximately and If those
ballots come back with an
approval number of 51 per-
cent or. more, then we have
to go to. the Walton County
Commission and then we go
through the public hearing
and ordinance adoption pro-
cedure."
Bell emphasized that the
public is included through-
out the process. "These
charges have to be approved
by the citizens and benefit
the citizens who pay for
them."

ask the board to approve

Jack Huggins, financial
director for the church, re-


sponded to board members

Huggins said, "We have ac-
tively been searching for
land. We don't know: yet if
that means we will move
or move the school, but the
space issue is something
we are actively pursuing an
answer to." Church deacon
Mike Richards made a point
of order and stated, "Mr.
Hutchins said he was lived
here on Circle Drive, but in
fact his house has been up
for sale for a year and a half
now and he lives in Lynn
Haven. I would say if his
house was sold he would not
be here or have a dog in the

Hutchins responded
from the audience, "I regret

Caryville residents hooked


on.Worm Fiddlin' Festival


By JEFFREY POWELL
The town of Caryville
held its 4th annual Worm
Fiddlin' Festival on May 3,
adjacent- to the Town Hall
on U.S. 90. The event was
well attended, with many
vendors and food conces-
sions on the grounds.
"We are real proud of
our festival and have come
a long way in the past four
years," said Festival Com-
mittee member Becky Pate.
"The festival committee is


delighted to be able to bring
this event back to Caryville.
The 1994 flood was devas-
tating to the area."
The art of worm fiddlin'
consists of driving a wooden
stake into the ground and
rubbing a brick or axe head
across the stake in an effort
to vibrate any worms that
might be in the area to the
surface. Contestants are as-
signed a spot and given 10
minutes to fiddle once the
starting gun has sounded.


CARYVILLE RESIDENTS CASSIE (L) Mandy and
Cody Pate were the winners of the Worm Fiddlin' Festival
with four worms collected. Photo by Jeffrey Powell


This year's winners were
Mandy, Cassie and Cody
Pate. The Pate family col-
lected four worms.
"We have been doing this
for three years and this is
the first time we have got-
ten a worm," said Mandy.
"We are very excited."
Although Saturday's
event is billed as the 4th an-
nual, worm fiddlin' is noth-
ing new to the area. Accord-
ing to information provided
by the festival committee,
the idea of having a worm
fiddlin' contest originated
in .the early 1970s. Frank
and Ed Pericola were de-
veloping a tract of land on
the Choctawhatchee River
and decided to hold the "In-
ternational Worm Fiddling
Contest" to help promote
the endeavor. Although the
camp sites were several
miles from Caryville, they
were on a rural mail route
and given a Caryville ad-
dress. The Pericolas held
the contest until 1974 when
most of their property had
been sold. With the blessing
of the Pericolas, the town of
Caryville took over the event
in 1976. Floods in the area
prevented the town from
holding the festival in sev-
eral of the following years.
"This year is bigger and
better than last year," said
Caryvile Town Council Co-
Chairman Henry Cham-
bers. "We expect next year
to be even better."


THE 2008 WORM FID-
DLIN' FESTIVAL was well
represented by Haley Taylor
(L) Jasmine Clayton and
Christi Pitts. Littlest Miss
Rodeo Cassidy Taylor also
attended the gathering. Pho-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 8,2008


"The Saints of Mount Christopher": making movies in Mobile


By BRUCE COLLIER
Three area residents,
including this reporter, re-
cently spent a Saturday in
Mobile filming a movie. The
film, titled "The Saints of
Mount Christopher," is di-
rected by (and stars) Shane
Dean. Dean put the word out
several months ago through
Pensacola-based theater
source Carol's Curtain Call
that he would be in the area
filming and was interest-
ing in using local actors for
some of the roles. Curtain
Call creator and webmis-
tress Carol Kahn Parker
spread the news, and got a
role herself in the bargain.
Also cast were Bruce
Culpepper, a resident of
DeFuniak Springs, and
Crestview resident Danny
Thomas. The film, based
on a true story, is about a
controversial college bas-
ketball coach and a group of
young players who all find
redemption-through-sports.
The three of us played
small, one-scene roles, all
shot in the Mobile area in a
single day's work. We began
around noon, and wrapped
for the day at 11:55 p.m. We
were paid, reimbursed for
fuel, and fed on the set. Just
like Johnny Depp, except
they probably don't make
Johnny pump his own gas.
, The first scene of the day
was shot at The Pillars, an
upscale restaurant located
in a residential area. The
Pillars serves only dinner,
so someone had to show
up and let the crew in the
place. In a short time, we all
learned that making movies
is a case of the old military
motto, "hurry up and wait."
Much of the waiting is for
the sound, light and cam-
era people to position their
equipment, subject to the
director's intentions, which
are themselves subject to
space and time limitations.
My scene was the last one
scheduled, so I had leisure
to watch and learn. Culpep-
per was busy getting into
costume and being made-up
for the camera. His char-
acter is a rough diamond
named Tuck Drummond, a
lottery-winning Westerner
who wants to own a bas-
ketball team. The scene is
a business lunch with Tuck
and Pat Chandler, the coach
- one of the lead characters
- played by Rus Blackwell.
Culpepper spends time talk-


ing with Blackwell, an expe-
rienced film and television
actor, seeking advice and
tips.
The actors are finally
called to the set, a table laid
with food and drinks in the
restaurant's inner dining
room. After a few quick re-
hearsals, the director steps
away to watch the scene as
it appears on a PC-sized
monitor, a few feet from
the set. A third actor, local
student Drew Johnson, hov-
ers off-camera in a waiter's
tux. The scene is shot sev-
eral times, stop and start,
with adjustments made for
sound level, sightlines, and
the rare but occasional actor
flub. Dean, dressed infor-
mally in sweats, t-shirt and
cowboy hat, moves silently
in and out, giving directions-
in a low voice. Culpepper,
an expansive type in real
life, fits neatly into the role
of the eccentric millionaire.
By contrast, Blackwell un-
derplays the coach, main-
taining intensity.
The scene ends, just in
time for the kitchen staff
to come in the doors and
begin prep for the evening.
Outside one crew member
breaks into a cooler, pull-
ing out water, juice, fruit,
cheese and assorted snacks.
Two bags of bagels have
managed to get themselves
dropped into the ice, and are
irreparably soggy. The next
scene, which involves none
of us, is going to be the big
one for the day. It's outside
a house in another residen-
tial neighborhood. We three
are told that it may take a
while, and that we should
find something to do in the


area for a few hours. We do,
mostly at a Waffle House.
We drop in on the set a
few hours later. Things are
a little more tense. The light
is good, the residents are
staying away, but the neigh-
borhood is near a railroad
track and is full of dogs.
Every other time Dean calls
"action" (yes, they do say
that), the dogs respond with
a chorus of barking. The
trains are running on time,
too. Dean shakes his head,
but keeps his cool. Eventu-
ally the scene, an emotional
confrontation between the
coach and his estranged
wife, is finished, including a
near-endless round of close-
up shots, all for later use in
-editing.
Danny Thomas is on deck
for the next scene, to be shot
miles away at a mall-sized
car dealership outside of
Mobile. We arrive well in
advance of the rest of the
crew, giving Thomas time to
get into costume and make-
up to play a divorce lawyer.
He, Blackwell, and the ac-
tress playing the estranged
wife have a brief, acrimo-
nious scene in the lawyer's
office. It's another interior
scene, and while there are
no dogs or trains, light-
ing and camera positions
require thought and time.
Culpepper and I do what we
do best, wait and stay out
of the way. The office - that
of the dealership's owner -
is in a suite, complete with
meeting room and executive
washroom. Dean circulates
a plate of fudge brownies to
give cast and crew a late af-
ternoon sugar boost. ,
The scene takes a while,

MAKING UP IS NOT HARD TO DO, as crew member
prepares Bruce Culpepper ofDeFuniak Springs for his scene
in "The Saints of Mount Christopher," filming in Mobile.


JUST BEFORE THE CAMERA ROLLS, actors Bruce Culpepper (1) and Rus Blackwell
(r) prepare for their scene in "The Saints of Mount Christopher," recently shot in a Mobile
restaurant. On the table is a dolly camera on tracks.


and we aren't on our way
to the day's final location
until after 8 p.m. It's back
in Mobile, a private home
in an old residential neigh-
borhood. My character, Bill
Dailey, is dressed post-soft-
ball game, complete with
muddy cleats. My job is to
walk abruptly into a kitch-
en where the mother of one
of the main characters is
cleaning the floor, and track
it full of mud. When I leave
the scene, I have to walk off
camera and into the living
room, which is richly - and
cleanly - carpeted. The crew
covers the floor with mats,
and I am repeatedly cau-
tioned about exactly where
to put my muddy stocking
feet.
A word on the mud. This
has been a dry and sunny
day, so I am given a bucket
of water and sent outside the
house. I pour the water on a
patch of bare ground and stir
it up. I then proceed to kneel
and roll in the mud, coating
pants, shirt, and cleats with
freshly-made Mobile urban
grime. Luckily it's dark, and


the neighborhood is quiet.
The scene is shot about
six times, with Dean (as an


actor now), myself and a fel-

SMOOTH JAZZ GUITARISTS JOYCE COOLING, had
her hands full with the crowd and then the more than two
hours of fans waiting in line to get her autograph.


ONE OF THE � MOST
popular acts to perform
at this past year's festival,
was former NBA superstar,
now smooth jazz guitarists,
Wayman Tisdale. He had
the crowds on their feet and
their hands clapping.


BEAUTY MEETS MUSIC AS Chante Moore brought the
house down during her performance. After her set, she took
the time to sign c.d. covers, mmet and greet festival-goers,
and of course take a few snapshots with her fans.


By CHUCK HINSON
After five days of smooth
jazz from an array of smooth
jazz artists from all over
the country and 10 years in
Walton County, the WSBZ
Seabreeze Jazz Festival said
farewell to Walton County
and hello to Panama City
Beach's Pier Park.
With mixed emotions, the
crowds exited Gulf Place for
the last time with the festi-
val moving to Bay County
in 2009. Despite the festival
years at Gulf Place, Water-
color, Seascape and Sea-
side, WSBZ management
and other event hosts, are
packing up the stage, tak-
ing down the lights, moving
the vendors, and moving to
Panama City Beach for the
next five years.
Mark Carter, owner of
WSBZ, the sponsoring radio
station, said that the move
would give the festival a
chance to grow and spread
its wings. Other festival en-
tities, like Hilltop Produc-
tions, are also seeing some
exciting new changes ahead
with a chance for more than
150 vendors able to be a
part of the 2009 event, un-
like this year's festival that
could only have a maximum
of 55 food, commercial and
arts and crafts vendors.
This year's jazz festival
that was held April 16-20
at Gulf Place and on the
Solaris Dinner Cruise Ship,
brought in record crowds.
More than 13,000 people
crowded onto the event lawn
and surrounding streets to
hear a multitude of enter-
tainers in the smooth jazz
music industry.
Once again, the Sea-
breeze Jazz Festival broke
all previous records and


leaves the county as the big-
gest ticketed event in the
county's history. But with
all the excitement of this
year's event, it was still not
big enough to keep the event
in Walton County.
In attendance at this
year's festival, representa-
tives from both the Panama
City Beach Tourism Board
and the Simon Group, man-
agement for Pier Park, had
high praise for the festival.
Both parties expressed ex-
citement about the move
for the event and were on
hand to answer questions
and give information about
the park, Bay County, Pier
Park retails and restau-
rants and accommodations
for the 2009 Seabreeze Jazz
Festival.
Throughout the weekend,
hundreds of VIPs, special
guests, and general-admis-
sion ticket' holders were
asked about their thoughts
on the changing of venues
and counties. Most all said
that the festival had out-
grown every venues in Wal-
ton County, and they should
go to a place where they
could continue to grow as a
world class music festival.
Thousands of tickets were
sold to people from all over
the world, including Great
Britain, France, South
America, Mexico, Australia,
Canada, and the Caribbean.
Nearly $2 million in rev-
enue, including hotel, condo
and house rentals, merchan-
dising and ticket sales were
brought in throughout the
festival weekend.
"We hate to lose the inti-
macy of Gulf Place and the
other venues that the jazz


festival has called home over
the past 10 years, but we
will go anywhere that they
decide to take the event,"
said Ema Wallers, of San
Diego, CA.
"No matter where the
festival goes, we will be
there on the front row and
jamming' with the crowds,"
said Myra Callie, of Oxford,
Great Britain.
But the big question for
many was whether the per-
formers would make the
change from one county
to another. A resounding
yes by nearly all perform-
ers asked throughout the
weekend, said they would
go where the people want
them.
Hilltop Productions will
also be making the move
with WSBZ. After hearing
and seeing the excitement
displayed by Panama City
Beach officials, the produc-
tion company noted that of
the more than 50 food, art
and craft and commercial
vendors, none said they
would not make the move
when the time came. Many
of the vendors were already
trying to pay for their booth
space for the 2009 Seabreeze
Jazz Festival during the fi-
nal day of this year's event.
Many had already told their
customers they would be
there front and center, with
new items, new inventory
and a new excitement for
the new venue.
Exit polls were taken af-
ter the final evening concert,
and nearly 95 percent of
those attending this year's
Seabreeze Jazz Festival said
' they would be in Panama


City next year. Many even
said they had called dur-
ing the weekend event and
booked their rooms at one of
the many high-rise condo-
miniums for 2009.
Plans for next year's
smooth jazz festival are al-
ready in the works and the
excitement is greater than
ever for the new venue.
Information, line-ups, ac-
commodations and other
information, will be listed
on WSBZ's website in the
upcoming months.


JOEY SOMMERVILLE
MADE his guitar sing for the
crowds during his Saturday
afternoon performance. He
was one of many smooth jazz
artists that graced the stage
during the 2008 Seabreeze
Jazz Festival.


J


MORE THAN 60 VENDORS took part in the 2008 Seabreeze Jazz Festival. From paint-
ings and jewelry, to pottery and stained glass, festival-goers were able to browse the numer-
ous artists during breaks between performer's sets.


MORE THAN 5,000 PEOPLE A DAY crowded onto the lawn of Gulff Place to hear four
days of smooth jazz from numerous recording and Grammy award-winning performers.

*Auntie Em
Dear Auntie Em,
I'm like many who write you. My husband just transferred here and we 'have been
discussing the possibility of attending church. Neither of us have attended in the past,
but we would like to try it. Any suggestions on how to pick a church if we don't have a
chosen domination. Thanks for any advice.
Searching in the South
(Name and address withheld on request.)
Dear Searching,
Churches not only provide spiritual relief but also provides support to its community
members. They are not something we are in short supply of in the South.
I personally think you should visit a new church every week until you find your fit.
Choose a church that promotes your idea of spirituality and.community. If you feel
uncomfortable or unwelcome, try a new one next time.
The church you choose should make you feel welcome and a part of something larger
than yourself. It's not about what clothes you wear or who else attends that church.
When you feel the presence of the spirit and the heart of those around you, you will
know you have found the right place. Good luck and God bless.

Mothers Hands
Mother's hands were always busy
throughout my younger years.
But she would stop and take the time
to wipe away my tears!
Mother's hands on the organ played,
and I would sing along.
Even when she hung out the clothes,
I'd hear her sing a song!
I remember Mother's cooking,
when she whipped up a meal:
With her spaghetti and meat balls,
her hands had made a steal!
Her soft, caressing hands would stroke,
my hot, feverish brow.
Then with the loving kiss she gave,
I was well again somehow!
Mother's hands remain busy still,
in heaven's garden today.
She's tending ruby, red roses,
that Jesus sent her way!

"Made of Honor"


Bv BRUCE COLLIER
1 have it on good
authority that Paul
Weiland's "Made of Honor"
is a chick flick that obeys
most of the rules of that
genre. While I don't know
what all those are rules
are, I do know some.
There's female-friendly
subject matter (a
wedding), handsome
leading men (Patrick
Dempsey and Scottish
hunk Kevin McKidd), lots
of dessert-eating, and a
love triangle. Check,
check, check, and check.
The premise is a little
strained. Still, it could be
that one of the other rules
of chick flicks is that their
premises never bear
scrutiny, which gives them
something in common with
every Arnold
Schwarzenegger film.
The premise is that


Tom (Dempsey) and
Hannah (Michelle
Monaghan) have been
best buddies since college,
having met-cute in her
dorm room. Both live in
New York (capital of
Chick Flickdom), both
have the kind of
employment that gives
them a ton of money and
lots of vacation time. This
also permits them to dress
stylishly. Check, check.
Tom is a diligent, albeit
charming, skirt-chaser.
Though dear friends and
confidantes, he and
Hannah have never been
romantically involved. My
chick-flick maven told me
that this was a little out of
line. "In all that time the
question would have to
have come up," she
observed. Well, if it had,
there'd be no movie, so
there. Hannah flies off to


Scotland to do something
artsy, and meets Colin
McMurray (McKidd).
Colin is tall, blonde, titled,
and immensely rich. After
about a week's courtship,
he pops the question and
Hannah gives Tom the
good news. She asks him
to be her "maid" of honor.
At this point the wall
falls on Tom and he
realizes, with the help of
his circle of basketball-
playing friends, that he
loves Hannah and doesn't
want to lose her. The
middle portion of the film
devotes itself to Tom's
surprisingly skillful
organization of the
nuptials (he watches a
training film by Elisabeth
Hasselbeck) and his
mounting horror as he
realizes that 'Colin is
something out of a
romance novel, the Perfect


Man.
There are some
subplots. One involves
Tom's father (played by
Sydney Pollack), who
marries and divorces the
way some people trade up
cars. Another concerns a
member of the bride's
party, a former amour of
Tom's out for petty
revenge. Colin's parents
and kinsmen are steeped
(or bogged) in Scottish
tradition and formalities,
with the result that
Hannah walks to the altar
with a Princess Barbie
hairdo and an ugly tartan
sash pinned to her gown.
Ah, but does she marry
Colin? I won't tell, but I
shouldn't have to.
"Made of Honor" is
pretty to look at, generally
funny, and the acting is
good. There are some
memorable visuals, as


when Tom's buddies help
him pack favor-baskets for
the wedding, and vie with
one another for the
"perfect" basket. Just
when things are looking
light, there's a "serious"
scene in which either Tom
or Hannah grapple with
their feelings and doubts.
There's a seen-it-before
aspect to it. I realized this
in a scene in Central Park.
Tom and Hannah are
walking across a bridge,
when I recalled that
Dempsey had been here
just a few months before,
with Amy Adams in
"Enchanted." My friend
suggested they might have
shot the films
simultaneously.
Dempsey is very good at
playing smooth,
prosperous urban
romantics, and he could
have done this one on


auto-pilot, no offense to his
talent. Monaghan has a
sweet, impish look and can
play both smart and
funny. McKidd, in a
potentially thankless role
as Colin, makes the most
of his Scottish accent and
comes off as an honest,
decent guy. Weiland spent
his money wisely on the
supporting cast, which
includes Kathleen
Quinlan, James Sikking,
Kevin, Sussman, and
Kadeem Hardison.

"Made of Honor" offers
comedy, romance, and a
few "sigh" moments.
There's even some physical
humor, the kind that Cary
Grant and Rock Hudson
used to get up to with
Doris Day. It's a good start
for summer, the season of
light entertainment and, of
course, weddings.

Cry

He was like the brother I never had
He was my best friend
We rode four wheelers together
and in the mud too.
We did everything together
Then that one day came too quick!
He was sick to know
And when we went out, he didn't go
He stayed with his friends just like
any other 19 year-old would do
Late that night I hear a laugh
Well what I thought was one
Then there came mom bawling her eyes
She told me the news I never wanted to know
Your uncle Josh died!
Me and Shelbie sat in my bed
She held me as I cried and she cried too!
I went to his house and sat, in his room
I was thinking about the good times
And how I wanted to hurt him
for not coming too
I wanted to scream, come back,
your punk misses you!
Written by Ashlyn Nichole

We love and miss you very much
Mom, Dad, Jason, Melissa, Jennifer,
Ted, Jeremy, Vickie and
all your nieces and nephews too.

Border Collies round up happy children
By ALICIA LEONARD


* James Thomas started
out with cattle around 40
years ago. He quickly un-
derstood why ranchers need
ranch hands to herd the live-
stock. But what's a rancher
to do when no ranch hands
are available? "Border, col-
lies," answered Thomas. "I
quickly learned those dogs
could do a lot more than I
could do."
Thomas's , necessity
quickly turned into another
enterprise of training the


dogs themselves and then
grew to a child ministry.
"We started doing shows at
a local park in'Dothan for
up to 600 kids sometimes
and then my wife asked why
don't we include ministering
to the kids as well?"
"Children can, relate :to
animals and it seems eas-
ier to reach them with the
dogs."
Through the border col-
lie demonstration, Thomas
shares with the audience


how blessed he has been
with his life and shows au-
dience members how the
dogs yield to his instruc-
tion as good members of the
religious flock yield to the
Bible's instructions.
Thomas now owns Valley
Border Collies and provides
a 30-day program training
herding dogs to work vari-
ous types of livestock. i

The first-ever Spots for
Tots fishing tournament is"
being held on May 31, 2008.,
. The purpose of' this tourna-
. ment is to gather family,
friends, and anglers from
the surrounding counties for
fun, fellowship, and compe-
tition. In addition, proceeds
from the tournament will go
towards the purchase of toys
and clothes for underprivi-
leged children both here and
across the world. Tourna-
ment directors, Chris Brown
and Jody Mann share com-
mon goals for the tourna-
ment. When asked about
their vision for the tourna-
ment, the directors were
very clear. "Our goal here is
not to raise money for our-
selves. In fact, we won't re-


ceive any money from this
tournament. We believe
thatall.children deserve lihe
absolute best that life has
to give. The proceeds frim
this tournament will help
give underprivileged kids a
better lifestyle, and that's
what we are all about."
Anglers will compete in a
two person team format for
redfish and speckled trout.
Weigh-ins will be at Lions
Park in Niceville.
There is a $30 entry fee
for a 2 person team. If you
would like to make a dona-
tion of any type or amount,

The Teacup
By Rev. Dr. G. Charles
Satterwhite, pastor
The teacup looked like
- an ordinary teacup until it
began to speak...
You do not understand. I
have not always been a tea-
cup. There was a time that
I was nothing but red clay.
My master took me, rolled
me, and patted me over and
over. I yelled, "leave me
alone!" but He only smiled
and said, Not yet."
Then I was placed upon
a spinning wheel and
spun around and around.
I screamed, "Stop it! I am
getting dizzy." The Master
nodded and said. "Not yet."
Then, He placed me in an
oven, and it was terribly
hot. I thought He would
burn me to a crisp. I yelled
and knocked on the door. I
could see His lips moving
as He said, "Not yet!"
Finally, the door was
opened and I began to cool.
Then suddenly, he painted
me all over and the fumes
were horrible. "Stop it! Stop
it!" He only nodded, "Not
yet." All at once, He placed
me back into the oven, only
this time, it was twice as
hot. I begged, pleaded,
screamed, and cried. But
He only said, "Not yet."
Then. at the last minute,
just as I knew I would nev-
er make it, He opened the
oven and placed me on a
high shelf. An hour later,
He handed me a mirror and
said, "Look at yourself."
I was beautiful!! Really
beautiful!! As I gazed at my
beauty, my master said. "I

Paxton defeats Laurel Hill, Graceville in playoffs


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Bobcats are
off to their second consecu-
tive Class A region final af-
ter defeating Graceville 6-2
and Laurel Hill 3-0 in the
first two rounds of the Flor-
ida High School Athletic As-
sociation's baseball playoffs.
Paxton defeated
Graceville in the opening
round last week 6-2 as the
Bobcats rallied form a 2-1
deficit with five runs in the
bottom of the fifth inning.
Paxton followed the
Graceville victory with a 3-0
victory at home over arch-
rival Laurel Hill. The Bob-
cats; who defeated the Ho-
boes four times in baseball
this season, found the fourth
meeting a much tougher af-
fair than the 10-0 win in the
district tournament cham-
pionship game against the
same club.
Against Graceville, Pax-
ton fell behind in the top of
the first inning as a field-
ing error allowed Stephen
Burdeshaw to reach base
and eventually score on
Chase Ivey's single for a 1-0
lead.
Paxton tied the game in
the bottom of the second in-
ning as Zach Forehand led
off with a single. Michael
Smith and Rodney Ferreira
followed with singles with
Ferreira driving in Fore-
hand to even the contest.
The game stayed tied
until the top of the fifth in-
ning when the Tigers struck
for another run. Graceville
used a two-out rally to score
as Justin Miles and Burde-
shaw singled. Tyler .Crutch-
field followed with a ground-
er to third that was thrown
away, allowing Miles to
score for a 2-1 lead.
Paxton (10-9) responded
in the bottom of the fifth in-
ning as the Bobcats got to
Tigers starter Josh Taylor.
Tyler and Brandon Gar-


rett both singled with Dan
Geoghagan reaching on
a sacrifice bunt as Taylor
failed to handle the bunt in
time to get Geoghagan at
first base. With the bases
loaded, Taylor was relieved
by Cody Gainer, who prompt-
ly walked Ryan Lewellen
on a full-count pitch with
the bases loaded to force in
the tying run. Jesse Craw-
ford followed with an RBI-
single and Zach Forehand's
groundout plated another
run. Colby Forehand added
an RBI-single and another
Bobcat stole home to stretch
the lead to 6-2.
Colby Forehand, who
pitched a complete game,
shut the door as he did not
allow a run over the final
two innings to pick up the
win. Forehand allowed seven
hits while walking only one
batter and recorded eight
strikeouts while throwing
86 pitches.
Against Laurel Hill, the
first three innings zoomed
by, as the two squads had
little luck against starters
Ethan Jackson and Dan
Geoghagan. Paxton drew
first blood in the bottom of
the fourth inning as Jesse
Crawford scored on a wild
pitch that Jackson uncorked
to give the home team a 1-0
lead.
Paxton threatened in the
fifth inning only to have Mi-
chael Smith gunned down
at the plate on a failed
squeeze attempt. The Bob-
cats stranded two other
base-runners as they failed
to increase the lead.
Laurel Hill put a pair of
runners on in the sixth in-
ning only to have C91lby
Forehand relieve Geogh-
agan and record the third
out via a strikeout to strand
two Hoboes runners.
Paxton got some breath-
ing room in the bottom of
the sixth inning as Jesse


Crawford singled in Ryan
Lewellen, then scored on a
single by Michael Smith to
extend the lead to 3-0.
Forehand then returned
to the mound to seal the win
and earn a save in an un-
eventful top of the seventh
inning.

The win sends the Pax-
ton Bobcats to the Region I
finals to be played in Jack-
sonville against Eagle's
View Academy on Friday,
May 9. The region final is
a best-of-three game series
that will featured a double-
header on Friday beginning
at 3 p.m. Central time with
a Saturday winner-take-all
game if the two squads split
the two Friday games. The
games will be played, on the
campus of the University
of North Florida as Eagle's
View is the host and top-
ranked team in the state in
Class A. Eagle's View de-
feated Paxton 8-4 last sea-
son and 15-0 in 2006 in two
previous meetings.


Game Notes: Paxton is
6-4 in the state playoffs. The.
Bobcats have no seniors on
this year's roster after los-
ing seven players after the
2007 run to the region final.
Graceville had 10 seniors on
their roster. Paxton recorded
only two outs in the outfield
of the 21 outs recorded in the
game. Tyler Garrett caught
a line drive that nearly got
over his head in the sixth
inning from his rightfield
position that stranded two
Graceville runners, then
caught the final out of the
game off of Chase Ivey's bat
near the foul line to seal the
win. Graceville struggled
to handle bunts as Pax-
ton worked the Tigers over
with a couple of squeeze at-
tempts, a steal of home and
disciplined at-bats that saw
Paxton not swing at pitches
out of the strike zone during
the fifth inning rally. Laurel
Hill did not make the er-
rors that cost them in the
10-0 district championship
loss to Paxton, but could


PAXTON'S MICHAEL SMITH catches his breath at
third base while keeping an eye on a chance to score during
Paxton's 3-0 win over Laurel Hill. Paxton won all four meet-
ings with the Hoboes on the diamond in 2008.


still not put any runs on the
board in the fourth meeting
between the two schools.
Dan Geoghagan and Colby
Forehand combined to pitch
13 shutout innings against


the Hoboes in their last two
meetings. Paxton was 4-0
in baseball and 3-0 in boys
basketball against Laurel
Hill this season. Laurel Hill
finished the season 9-17.


PAXTON'S COLBY FOREHAND pitched a complete
game in a 6-2 win over Graceville last week, then picked up
a save in 1 1/3 innings of work against Laurel Hill in a 3-0
win on Friday in the second round of the Class A baseball
playoffs.


PAXTON'S JESSE CRAWFORD had a big.week as he
drove in a run in Paxton's 6-2 win over Graceville, then
scored two runs against Laurel Hill in a 3-0 win that pro-
pelled Paxton into this weekend's region final.


PAXTON'S RODNEY FERREIRA singled in the Bobcats
first run in the second inning of a 6-2 win over Graceville in
the first round of ;he 2008 Class A baseball playoffs.


Altha ends Freeport's

season with 9-1 win


By PATRICK CASEY
Altha scored four runs in
the first inning and pitcher
Tad Scott tossed a four-
hitter as Altha eliminated
the Freeport Bulldogs 9-1
in a Class 2A state baseball
playoff game.
Freeport took a 1-0 lead
in the top of the first in-
ning, but saw Altha respond
with four runs of their own
in the bottom of the frame
to quickly grab a 4-1 lead.
Gary Chew had a two-run
double after an error and a
pair of walks gave the- Wild-
cats an opportunity to build
a lead.
Logan Caudill's bases
loaded walk in the first in-
ning plated the Bulldogs
only run of the night as Scott
got a fly ball to centerfield to
get out of the jam.
Scott added a two-run
home run in the fourth in-
ning to increase the lead to
7-1.
Scott controlled the game
from the mound by allowing
only four hits as he improved
to 9-1 on the season with Al-
tha improving to 21-6 and
a second round showdown
with Jay. Scott struck out
seven batters while walking


four in the complete game
win.
Altha was able to steal
five bases and took advan-
tage of three Freeport errors
to help build the lead.
Game Notes: Both Altha
and Freeport had been 0-3
in the state playoffs, as Al-
tha picks up their first ever
victory in the high school
baseball playoffs., Freeport
had a solid season, finish-
ing 17-11 overall and made
great strides in the program
after struggling for the last
few years. Freeport will
have to work on consistency
for next season, but the dis-
trict should be wide open
with Jay graduating sev-
eral seniors from this year's
club. Freeport Coach Gene
Martin has been the head
coach in all four of Free-
port's playoff games. The'
Bulldogs have not been able
to keep the playoff games
close, losing 9-1 this season
and by eight or more runs in
the past. They lost in 1988
to Jay 11-3, in 1990 to Pen-
sacola Catholic 19-3 and in
1997 to Liberty County 9-1.
Jay eliminated Altha in the
second round with a 6-3
home victory.

Paxton baseball off to Jacksonville for Region final


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Bobcats will
play for the right to advance
to Sarasota for the Class
A baseball Final Four this
week as the squad travels to
Jacksonville to face Eagle's
View in a best-of-three se-
ries. This will be the third
straight year the Bobcats'
will square off with the War-
riors in the state playoffs.
The Florida High School
Athletic Association
changed the baseball region
final in all six classifications
to a best-of-three series this
year, as opposed to a single
elimination game as it has
been throughout the major-
ity of the sport's history in
Florida.

Paxton faces a tough task
as Jacksonville Eagle's View
Academy is the defending
state champion and cur-
rently ranked No. 1 in Class
A. The Warriors have won
two state championships


and have been the Region I
representative at the Final
Four for four straight years.
A win over Paxton is all that
stands between the War-
riors and a fifth straight trip
to the Final Four.
Eagle's View coach Gil
Morales has a 96-53 record
in five years at the school.
His 100th victory could
go hand-in-hand with the
school's third state title if
the squad can defeat Pax-
ton with a pair of wins, then
grab two victories at the Fi-
nal Four.
Eagle's View has 10 se-
niors, but their best player
may be junior Austin Mad-
dox, who both catches and
pitches for the Warriors.
Maddox has driven in 12
runs in the two playoff
games this season and hit
a pair of home runs against
Aucilla Christian on Friday
in the Warriors 18-5 vic-
tory. Maddox has a fastball
that has been clocked in the


mid-90's and will almost as-
suredly start one of the two
contests against Paxton on
Friday.
Junior shortstop Matt
Bergquist is another hitter
to watch. Bergquist went
4-4 against Aucilla and is
part of a lineup that has tre-
mendous power.
Eagle's View is 21-8 this
season, but that is a little
misleading as they have
played some of the larger,
and better, schools across
the state. Eagle's View beat
Tallahassee North Florida
Christian, the Class 2A de-
fending champ, 12-4 in Tal-
lahassee on February 29.
The Eagles are playing Jay
at home in a best-of-three
series this week in Talla-
hassee in Class 2A.
Eagle's View could likely
challenge for a state cham-
pionship in several of the
larger classifications, but
the private school controls
enrollment to stay small'


and has become a power, in
baseball in Jacksonville..
Josh Adams, who hit a
two-run homer against Pax-
ton in the first inning of last
year's 8-4 win in Paxton, is
starting at either second or
third base this season as a
true freshman for the Uni-
versity of Florida. He is sec-
ond on the Gators team in
hitting with a .341 average
and is tied for the lead on
the team with seven home
runs.
All this just adds to the
battle of public versus pri-
vate schools in athletics.
"We are the public school
baseball state champions,"
Paxton Coach Jeff Bradley
added after Friday night's
win over Laurel Hill. "Now
we have to go battle the pri-
vate schools from the rest of
the state. The best-of-three
format does not really favor
the underdog. Our kids have
worked hard, but we have a
mountain to climb the rest


of the way. We will give it
our best shot and play Pax-
ton baseball."
Paxton (10-9) will do
their best to counter with a
solid defensive club that has
received excellent pitching
from Dan Geoghagan and
Colby Forehand since the
Start of the district. tourna-
ment.

The Bobcats will need
to execute to near perfec-
tion to have a chance to pull
off the upset. The Bobcats
are young, but excel at the
game's fundamentals. For
Paxton to have a chance, the
squad must get superb field-
ing and the pitchers must
move the ball around the
plate to keep the Warriors
from having a big inning
if they get locked on to one
pitcher's methods.
Keep in mind, Paxton
played Eagle's View the
closest of any team in the
playoffs last season. How-


ever, Paxton does not have
a senior on the team, so ex-
perience has been built off
this year's four-game play-
off run.

The series will be played
at the University of North
Florida in Jacksonville,
which is located on the east
side of the city, towards
Jacksonville Beach. The
first game is set to start on
Friday, May 9, at 3 p.m.
Central time with the sec-
ond game to follow 30-45
minutes after the first ends.
Directions to the Univer-
sity of North Florida: From
1-10 (Eastbound),take 1-10
East to 1-95 South. Merge
onto J Turner Butler Blvd E
(SR-202) via exit 344. Turn
left at the fork in the ramp
(north). Take the St. Johns
Bluff Rd exit to merge onto
SR-9A N. Turn left onto SR-
9A. Take the first exit to the
right to merge onto UNF
Drive.


Sports News & Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The NO. 2-ranked Uni-,
versity of Florida softball
team (59-2, 27-1 SEC) is the
2008 Southeastern Confer-
ence regular season cham-
pion. The Gators won the
title outright, as they swept
the series with Tennessee
(46-13, 14-12 SEC), winning
the final game 5-3 in Knox-
ville on Sunday afternoon.
The title is only the second
in the school's history. The
Gators also won the confer-
ence title in 1998, finishing
the regular season with a
23-5 conference record. The
27-1 record by the 2008


squad is the best conference
record in school history.
Florida will now head to Ba-
ton Rouge as the top seed in
the SEC Tournament.
Wewahitchka was the
only team from the Panhan-
dle-Big Bend area to make
it to the state tournament
in softball. The Gators will
try to defend their Class 2A
title in softball when they
take on Belle Glade Glades
Day High School at 1 p.m.
on Wednesday at Plant City
Stadium. Wewa is 25-2 and
likely the favorite to repeat
with talented junior pitch-
er Samantha Rich on the


mound. She has dominated
competition again this year
and is a solid hitter in a
line-up that has some pop.
The Gators will have to
defeat a solid Belle Glade
squad that is 21-7 and the
Region 4 champion. The
winner will square off with
the winner of the Jackson-
ville Providence(25-3)-Fort
Myers Southwest Florida
Christian(18-4) winner on
Friday at 3 p.m. for the state
championship.

Paxton's baseball team
isn't the only area squad
partaking in a best-of-three


Dothan, Caryville pick up wins


The Dothan Eagles scored
five runs in the first inning,,
then added- four insurance
runs in the seventh as they
defeated the DeFuniak
Springs Red .Sox 11-6 on
Sunday in a game played
at Douglass Crossroad Park
in Don Graham Enterprises
baseball.
Former Ponce de Leon
baseball player Will Scott


hit a.three-run home run to
cut the lead to 6-3, but De-
Funiak was unable to get
much closer before Dothan
put the game out of reach.
Caryville defeated the
PDL Tigers 11-5 on Sunday
as the Caryville Chiefs got
a 3-run homer in the third
inning to take the lead. The
Tigers scratched back with
two runs in the fourth in-


ning to .cut ,the lead to 4-2
but Caryville went on to
grab the victory. '

A tryout will be held at
the Wee Care Park in De-
Funiak Springs on May
7-8 at 5 p.m. Players must
be 18 or older to compete.

FSU's Parker has local


charges
By CHUCKI HINSON
A petit theft charge has
been dropped against Flor-
ida State receiver Preston
Parker, who still has to re-
solve a more serious weap-
ons charge in Palm Beach
County before he can step
on the football field. Park-
er paid $200 in court cost
and the 2006 misdemeanor
charge of swiping a $9.99
DVD from a Best Buy store


dropped


in Tallahassee was dropped
last Monday.

. Henry Hunter, attorney
for Parker, said he may
serve as Parker's co-counsel
in the Palm Beach County
case, but nothing whas been
finalized. Parker was ar-
rested earlier last month
on a misdemeanor charge
of possessing less than 20
grams of marijuana and a


felony charge for allegedly
having a loaded .45-cali-
ber pistol stuffed in his car
when stopped by a Palm
Beach County officer.
FSU has a strict policy
that any athlete that is
facing a felony charge is
not allowed to play on any
sports team. If the charge
is reduced, he could be rein-
stated and join the Seminole
football team in August.

baseball regional. Jay (19-4)
will travel to Tallahassee
on Friday to face defending
Class 2A champion North
Florida Christian (22-7)

double-header beginning
at noon. In Class 3A, Jack-
sonville Episcopal (20-10)
will travel to Pensacola to
face the Catholic Crusaders

set to start at 4 p.m. In Class
4A, West Florida Tech (23-4)
from Pensacola will travel to
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny
(24-4) with the first game
set to start at 3 p.m. The
closest baseball region final
to our area geographically
will feature Niceville (20-10)
hosting Gainesville High
School (18-12) in the Class
5A region final with the first
pitch set for 4 p.m. Winning
the best-of-three series this
weekend will send teams to
the Final Four at Ed Smith


Stadium in Sarasota next
week.
Lance Bailey, a senior at
Marianna High School, has
committed to play baseball
at Chipola Junior College.
Bailey was one of nine Bull-
dog seniors that saw his high
school career come to an end
with a 7-2 loss. to Pensacola
Catholic last week. Bai-
ley's uncle is former Liberty
County and Florida State
star Tim Davis, who pitched
in the big leagues for the Se-
attle Mariners. Bailey is an-
other college prospect who
grew up watching Jeff Ma-
this, a Marianna baseball
player who is now a catcher
with the Los Angeles An-
gels, and Alan Horne, who is
a pitcher who played for the
University of Florida and is
working his way up the New
York Yankees farm system.
West Gadsden High
School Athletic Director


Robert Jackson is retiring
at the end of the school year.
The long-time football coach
has been at Greensboro High
School(which was combined
with Chattahoochee High
School to form West Gad-
sden just a few years ago)
since the 1970s. Jackson
took over for Jeff Webb when
he left to take the Vernon
High School football coach-
ing job in 1978. Greensboro,
which competed in Class A
for most of his tenure, has
had some outstanding teams
during his years there and
has never been afraid to
face larger competition such
as Jacksonville Bolles and
several of the area's larger
Tallahassee schools over the
seasons despite a small ros-
ter of players.

By CHUCK HINSON
If you got to watch any
of the Kentucky Derby this
past weekend, there was
not much celebration after
the race concluded when of-
ficials had to euthanize race


favorite Eight Belles. The
horse had run a tough race
and closed in the gap, just
before breaking both of her
ankles and had to be put
down.
The spectacle was seen


across the nation as the in-
cident transpired on live
television, on the track with
viewers and fans still sitting
quitely in the stands at the
Churchill Downs Horse Rac-
ing track. She was running


against all odds at becoming
the first filly to win the Ken-
tucky Derby coveted prize in
20 years.
The world of horse racing
has seen this type of tragedy
before, but with different


Riley says farewell


By CHUCK HINSON
After the April 26 game
came to a close and the final
buzzer sounded, Miami head
coach Pat Riley walked off
the court for the final time,
waved goodbye and headed
for a new path in his life.
The Hall of Fame coach re-
signed from the NBA and as
the head coach of the Heat.


Despite his retiring from
the team, Riley will still re-
main president. His first act
as commander in chief was
to find his replacement and
he did just that.
He began in the video
room in 1995, and worked
his way to the top spot. Be-
coming the youngest NBA
head basketball coach in


NBA history, 37-year-old
Erik Spoelstra was named
head coach for the Miami
Heat.
Miami finished the sea-
son with a 15-67 record, by
far the worst season record
for Riley. As president, he
will continue to work with
the team to revise and re-
vamp the franchise who won


a NBA crown just two years
ago.
Riley ends his coaching
career with 1,210 victories,
third most in NBA history
behind Lenny Wilkes and
Don Nelson. He won seven
championships, including
five as head coach, and just
celebrated his election into
the NBA Hall of Fame.


Hornet's Scott named NBA coach of the year


By CHUCK HINSON
After four years of not be-
ing in the "big game," the
city of New Orleans has


something else to celebrate
than Mardi Gras, Creole
food and the Siants, the
Hornets made the play-offs
and head coach Byron Scott


won the NBA coach of the
year.
Scott took over the Hor-
nets in 2004 and went 18-64
while overseeing s roster
overhaul that included the
trade of Baron Davis. New
Orleans then drafted Chris
Paul with the fourth overall
pick in 2005 and they began


to improve from that point
on.
The Hornets are riding
on a 56-26 season so far this
year. They are set to win the
Southwest Division crown
and the second seed in the
Western Confernce playoffs,
taking place in less than
two weeks.


outpourings from fans like
when the race horse as Bar-
baro had to be put down, and
the millions that responded
with cries of sympathy.
This past Sunday's de-
cision to euthanize Belle
Eight was done quickly .from
officials and trainers who
said it would spare her any
more agony after she tried
to regain her balance and


stand-up with both front
ankles broken. It was all
done with the most dignity
for the animal and when the
equine ambulance arrived
on the track, screens were
immediately placed around
the horse so fans could not
see the inevitable.
Big Brown crossed the
finish line to win the 134th
race.

Fifth annual Take a Kid Fishing Day


By ALICIA LEONARD
Over 200 kids and par-
ents spent some quality
family time along with the
Kiwanians and local elected


officials during the Fifth An-
nual Take a Kid fishing day
at the DeFuniak Springs
Lakeyard.
The event was originally


started by the Kiwanias
club as a way for families to
spend quality time together.
The event has grown dur-
ing the past five years and


draws a multitude of spon-
sors and participants, such
as Bass Pro Shop, CHELCO,
Wal-Mart and many more.


The boys and girls, ages
five through 13, enjoyed
fishing instruction, demon-
strations, door prizes, and


a concession stand as they
learned to catch the whop-
pers and release them for
the event next year.


_-. . . . . . . . . . ....- -., .. :-

KIDS, PARENTS and event supporters lined the Western edge of the Lakeyard as the
shared family fun and fishing.

State Attorney files


new charges in


Burke case


By JEFFREY POWELL
"The State Attorney has
filed new, charges on the
same complaint. That com-
plaint is based on hearsay
information that is false,"
said suspended South Wal-
ton County Mosquito Control
District (SWCMCD) Com-
missioner Charlie Burke.
"This [complaint] was never
sworn to by the person mak-
ing the complaint because
he was a lawyer and knew it
was false. I have said from
the beginning that these


charges are politically moti-
vated."
The latest development
in the Burke case occurred
on May 1, during a sched-
uled docket date. Burke's
case would have gone to tri-
al on May 5, but for the new
charge.
Burke was already
charged with violating Flori-
da Statute 104.011 (1). That
charge basically stems from
what the state believes was
a false statement concern-
ing Burke's legal residence.

BURKE and his wife Jenny Hansson spoke to the DeFuniak
Herald after Tuesdays court proceedings. Photo by Jeffrey
Powell


Burke is required to be a
Walton County resident to
hold the position of SWC-
MCD commissioner. The
state apparently has reason
to believe he resides in Bay
County.
The new charge, under
the same code, contends
Burke also submitted false
voter registration informa-
tion on or about June 21,
2007.
'Mr. Burke will receive
a new arraignment on the
amended information," said
Assistant State Attorney
Greg Anchors. "We will go
forward with the case from
there."
Burke was originally ar-
rested on Dec. 4, 2007, just
prior to a SWCMCD regu-
lar meeting, by Investigator
Brad Trusty of the States
Attorney's office. On Dec. 13
Governor Charlie Crist sus-
pended the commissioner
pending the outcome of the
charges.
"The States Attorney's
Office has made an offer to
drop the charges if I resign
as a Commissioner of the
SWCMCD. I will not resign
and will continue to repre-
sent the taxpaying voters
of south Walton," insisted
Burke. "I was the deciding
vote to reduce taxes 20 per-
cent in my district. I also
voted to remove the over-
paid director. These charges
are a repercussion of these
votes and the voters in may
district know this."
Burke"s next court ap-
pearance is on May 13, when
he will be arraigned on the
.new charges.


SWFD talks property issues,

upcoming milestones


By CHRIS MANSON
During Monday's regu-
lar monthly meeting of the
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD), attorney Lorraine
Bytell informed the board
that she would appear be-
fore the Walton County


Planning Commission this
week. She planned to sub-
mit a small-scale amend-
ment application propos-
ing that a property owned
by the SWFD be re-zoned
for neighborhood use. The
property is currently zoned


for public use only.
"It's just a vacant lot,"
said Bytell. "There are not a
lot of things you can do with
public uses. It's a very limit-
ed category under the code."

THESE ARE examples of the signs which will be placed
along Timpoochee Trails. The sign on the left clearly identi-
fies the area as the Scenic 30A corridor, while the sign on the
right provides information to a trail user. (Drawings cour-
tesy of Glatting Jackson).


Consensus

reached on

direction of signs


By LEAH STRATMANN
After only two meetings,
all the. groups concerned
with signage along the CR-
30A corridor, including the
Timpoochee Trail, were able
to agree to move forward
with the signs designed by
Jonathan Mugmon of the
sign-consulting firm of Glat-
ting Jackson.
Mugmon was not in at-
tendance at the first meeting
on April 22 and although his
master plan was displayed,
there were some, concerns
from a variety of scenic
corridor groups about the
stripes on the sign poles, as
well as the number of signs
slated for installation.
Dan McClary, a member
of the Friends of the Tim-
poochee Trail and one of the
people instrumental in ap-
proaching the county with
the need for safety signs
along the trail, said the


signs should be fabricated
and placed by June 15.
"I am hopeful that will
be the case," he said. Some
years ago, McClary ad-
dressed the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners on trail
safety issues and in March
2006 the county hired Glat-
ting Jackson, at a cost of
$40,000, to develop and de-
sign signs specifically relat-
ed to safety and wayfinding
for the trail, which stretches
some 18-plus miles along
CR-30A. Phase 1 of the
plan calls for the installa-
tion of more than 90 signs,
all related to safety. Phase
II includes interpretive and
educational signs for the
trail. When both phases are
complete, 120 signs will be
in place along the trail.
"We did not come to this
from a naive perspective,"

Talbert noted that June
1-7 would be designated
as Rip Current Awareness
Week and that Aug. 6 will
mark the 25th anniversary
of the fire district. He said
the next monthly meeting,
,to be held June 2, would fo-
cus on budget statutes and
SWFD expenditures for the
remainder of the year.
, In old business, chairman
Maurice Gilbert said a party
wanted to lease the SWFD's
CR-395 property for stor-
age, but was turned down
by the county. He said there
had been several showings
of the CR-393 property, "but
still no takers."
The sole item in new busi-
ness concerned Emergency
Medical Services Week, to
be celebrated May 18-24.
The week was established
by the American College of


Emergency Physicians to
recognize EMS teams and
the thousands of hours they
spend enhancing lifesaving
skills. The SWFD has cho-
sen "Your Life Is Our Mis-
sion'; as its theme for EMS
week and plans training
programs, employee recog-
nition, and other activities.
Vice-chairman Jack Ab-
bit asked for an update on
staff physical that were to
be provided by Sacred Heart
Hospital. Talbert said it was
"just about nailed down" and
that he was very optimis-
tic that the labor impacts
would be minimal.
Following the meeting,
Talbert observed, "This is
my one-year anniversary
(as fire chief). I am so very
proud and pleased with all
of the men and women here
and their dedication to the
community."


problem
might not ac-
complished
as easily.
While I don't
watch a lot
of television,
there are a
few shows
I'm very fond
of. Televi-
sion service
in Red Bay is
yet another
challenge if
you want to
be able to watch local ver-
sions of NBC, ABC, CBS
and,Fox. I've not had access
to anything else for several
years. Cable service just be-
came insanely expensive so
I dumped all but. what was
necessary to have reception
for a cost of $15 a month. No
CNN, no Weather Channel,
nothing but the four major
networks, TBS, and a bunch
of shopping and religion
channels I never watched.
Even at $15 a month, it
seemed high, but there was
no other available option.
Come now to the land of
no cable service offered and
you have a choice of a couple
of versions of mini-satellite
television with an average
price of about $30 a month
for-basic stuff. First I called
Dish TV several weeks ago
and they told me I. would
have the networks. Cool.
However when they sent
an email confirming what I
would be receiving, CBS was
not listed. When I called,
they said CBS was not a net-
work option. What? I could
have NBC, FOX, and ABC,
but no CBS. I cancelled the
installation order and called
Direct TV. I explained what
had happened with the Dish
people and they assured me
I would have the local net-
work coverage if I were just
wise enough to sign on with
them, so I did..
The day after I moved
in, the Direct TV installer
showed up as promised. Af-
ter crawling around under


the house
and helping
me move
stuff out of
the way to
put the TV
where we
boththought
it should go
(and where*
there was
an electri-
,.cal outlet)
' he started
to show me
what I have.
The remote looks like some-
thing suitable -for a space
mission. As he pointed out
the wonders of this receiv-
er which allows a viewer
to pause a live show and
continue later, as well as
watch one show and record
another, I asked this nice
man to show me where NBC
out of Panama City could be
found.
He looked at me -in
stunned wonder and said lo-
cal channels were not avail-
able. At that point I told him
he should uninstall every-
thing because I had no need
for 400 channels I wouldn't
watch when all I wanted.
was local networks. He got
on the phone to Direct TV
and told them he would not
take responsibility for tak-
ing the equipment back as
he was simply contracted
to perform installations and
not a Direct TV employee,
then handed the phone to
me. When I talked to them,
they said less than 4 percent
of the nation could receive
local programming through
Direct TV, no matter what I
may have been told. So I told
them I had, no use for the
receiver or the service. The
customer service rep said
he could request a waiver of
some kind giving me either
an East Coast or West Coast
feed from the networks but
it may take a while to find
out if the waiver would be
granted, but they surely
didn't want 'to lose me as a
customer. I told him as far

with Leah Stratmann

as I was concerned I was
not yet a customer. I had
paid nothing and will pay
nothing unless I get what I
want.
Meanwhile, my extra nice
installer guy had discovered
an antenna at the top of an
enormous pine tree in the
front yard and he diddled
around and had local NBC,
CBS and ABC for a few min-
utes, but then it went away.
He said he should be able to
make it work but he had al-
ready been at my place far
longer than he expected and
.he had three more installa-
tions on the books for the
remainder of the day, but he
said he would come back on
his day off and on his own
dime to see if he could fix it
so I could have what I want-
ed. I don't know if he will,
but it sure was a neighborly
offer.

Speaking of good neigh-
bors, we should be writ-
ing about people doing nice
things with no expectations
of any recompense for them-
selves. I know they are here
and I'd love to meet them
and write about them. (Iet

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


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


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


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


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

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 8,2008


"Late-Night Benediction"



Pubgoers amenable to church services


By CHRIS MANSON
Services tonight will be
held at McGuire's Irish Pub
in Destin.
No, this isn't a wake. It's
"church for the real world,"
part of Shoreline Church's
three-years-and-counting
mission to bring its message
to the people.
Eric Partin, founder and
lead pastor of the church,
said he wanted to start
church at the popular eat-
ery for several reasons. The
McGuire's service is de-


signed for people working
in the service industry that
cannot make it to Sunday
services, but also provides
a place where "people feel
comfortable in a safe en-
vironment, where you can
bring a friend who won't feel
out of place."
The owner of McGuire's
was receptive to the idea.
Like any other private par-
ty, the church pays a fee to
use the restaurant's upper
deck.
"Church in a Bar" began

April 1. Shoreline Church
continues to offer nonde-
nominational Christian
services Sunday mornings
at Rave Motion Pictures in
Destin at 9 and 10:30 a.m.
The congregation includes
some regulars and more
than a few who wander in
off the street. "We don't care
if they drink," said Partin.
"We just want them to hear
the message of Christ."
There is a band made up
of musicians who play in lo-
cal bar bands and worship
groups. The seven-piece out-
fit includes two guitarists, a
singer, a drummer, a per-
cussionist, a bassist, and a
keyboard player. They begin
the service with a few songs
that try to adhere to the eve-
ning's message. Tonight's
songs include Depeche
Mode's "People Are -People"
and Collective Soul's "The
World I Know." As the band
rocks the upstairs deck, lyr-
ics are superimposed on
the three monitors placed
throughout.
A Youtube clip follows,
and then pastor Sam Blow-
es delivers "the talk" in a
warm, conversational tone.
Tonight he is' wrapping up
a series titled "Here Comes
the Judge." The message
deals with confronting
people with their problems
without being judgmental.
The 600-plus member
church does not have a
building yet, but frequently
offers baptisms at Hender-
son Beach. "We may have a
building one day," said Par-
tin. "But we would rather
have the small campuses.
We've also been approached
by two Walton County estab-
lishments, and we have our
eyes on DeFuniak Springs,


too."
Partin said the response
to the bar services has been
mostly positive. "People who
don't go to church think it's
great," he said. "We believe
Jesus would be here. He
hung out where the people
were."
Shoreline Church's
founder was born and raised
in Destin, but never went to
church. At age 25, Partin
moved to south Florida and
began attending services
regularly. He soon realized
his dream was to return to
his hometown and start a
church.
Thus began the late night
benedictions at McGuire's
Irish Pub allowing patrons
to get in the spirit of things.

Green Thumb Garden

club meeting planned


The members of the
Green Thumb Garden Club
were fascinated by the pro-
gram about Pitcher Plants
(Sarracenia flava) given
by Master Gardener, Dave
Gordon at a recent meeting.
These plants are native,
carnivorous plants found in
wetlands around our area.
They attract, entrap and di-
gest insects. As an endan-
gered species, they cannot
be dug up or removed from
their habitat.

Choctawhatchee Audubon

Society Spring migration count


The Choctawhatchee
Audubon Society will con-
duct the North American
Spring Migration Count in
recognition of International
Migratory Bird Day (IMBD)
on Saturday, May 10, 2008.
Volunteers are needed
to assist experienced lead-
ers as recorders or spotters;
no experience necessary.
IMBD, held annually on the
second Saturday in May, is
an invitation to celebrate


and support migratory bird
conservation. The primary
objective of the IMBD is
to monitor the status and
distribution of bird popula-
tions.
This is vital for conserva-
tion efforts. To help in the
Count or for more informa-
tion, contact Donald Ware
at 862-6582, or donware@

McGuire's Irish Pub in Destin, Shoreline Church founder
and lead pastor Eric Partin (right) greets members Bryce
and Kimberly Secondine. The couple joined the unconven-
tional, nondenominational church seven' months ago. "We
were invited, and it fit our personalities," says Kimberly.

Fit & Healthy


A lot of people are very
curious about the most ef-
fective cardio workouts. Be-
lieve it or not, the workouts
that mix periods of high
intensity (going close to
all out) with periods of low
intensity (think light jog)
reign supreme.
In a study out of Canada,
from Laval University, re-
searchers measured differ-
ences in fat loss between two
groups of exercisers follow-
ing two different workout
programs. The first group
rode stationary bikes four
or five times a week and
burned 300 to 400 calories
per 30-40 minute session.
The second did the same,
but only one or two times a
week, and they filled the rest
of their sessions with short
intervals of high intensity
cycling (similar to hopping
on the elliptical and push-
ing it hard for 30-90 sec-
onds, rest and then repeat).
As a result, they burned 225
to 250 calories while cycling,
but they had burned more
fat at the end of the study
than the workers in the first
group. In fact, even though


they exercised less, their fat
loss was nine times greater.
Researchers said that the
majority of the fat burning
took place after the workout.
Once again, the fat burning.
mechanisms revved not only
during exercise but after it,
too.
The lesson in the abbve
research - faster but short-
er!
To let everyone in on a lit-
tle secret - this is the foun-
dation from which all work-
outs should be designed.
Why be in the gym or on a
treadmill all day instead of
outside enjoying some fam-
ily activity, yet still be burn-,
ing calories that will lead to
fat loss?
I know everyone is all
busy this time of year so
don't always assume that
one must need to be doing
50-60 minutes of cardio to
get benefits. Keep it short,
safe, simple and intense.

"When my daughter was
killed I lost everything I
cared about," said Mark
Lunsford. "The grass is not
green, the sky is no longer
"blue."
Lunsford's comments
came during a ceremony
intended to recognize April
as Child Abuse Awareness
month at the Emerald Coast
Children's Advocacy Center
(ECCAC) in Niceville.
Jessica Lunsford's kid-
napping, rape and murder
attracted national attention


in 2005. It was later, discov-
ered that convicted sex of-
fender John E. Couey had
perpetrated this horren-
dous crime. Couey had been
a neighbor of Lunsford in
Homosassa, FL. Couey was
later convicted for the crime
and sentenced to death.
Since his daughter's mur-
der, Lunsford has worked
tirelessly to promote aware-
ness for sex crimes commit-
ted on children. The former
truck driver, and self pro-
claimed average guy, speaks
with a resolve that can only
come from a person that has

erald Coast Children's Advocacy Center. Photo by Jeffrey
Powell


experienced such a tragic
event.
"When we lose a child we
lose a part of our future. I
know what child advocacy
centers can do," Lunsford
stressed. "People that com-
mit these types of crimes
need to be behind bars. By
putting away sexual offend-
ers our children get a chance
at life."
According to data provid-
ed by the ECCAC, one in four
young females will be sexu-
ally abused before the age of
18. Ninety percent of these
victims will know and trust
their abusers. In 1996, the
year before the ECCAC was
established, only 29 cases of
child abuse were prosecuted
in Okaloosa and Walton
Counties. In 2006, 145 child
abuse cases were prosecuted
in the two-county area. Last
year an average of five alle-
gations of child abuse were
made. per day in Okaloosa
and Walton counties.
Representatives from
Congressman Jeff Miller,
Rep. Ray Sansom and Sen.'
Don Gaetz attended the
April 23 event. Law enforce-
ment officers, and local dig-
nitaries were also on hand.
"What better way to rec-
ognize Child Abuse Aware-
ness Month than to bring
in someone who has done so
much work on behalf of his
daughter," said ECCAC Ex-
ecutive Director Julie Hurst.
"We really appreciate Mark
being here."
"Stay on top of your legis-
lators," Lunsford concluded.
"They always need a push."

Friday Artwalk at Seaside. This is one of her early paintings, a pastel titled "Mellow Yel-

wildlife charities," says Kelley. She works mainly in acrylics now, because "the colors are
more vibrant." (Photo by Chris Manson)

FEATURED ARTIST for
May's First Friday Artwalk
at Seaside, and her nine-
year-old Maltese Gulliver, re-

a gallery here before moving
to Birmingham three years
ago. "It's a unique and fun
experience to be the guest and
show my art and not some-
body else's," ,says Proctor.
This month, Cara Roy's gal-
lery sponsored the Artwalk
and gave the community a
chance to meet Proctor and
browse works like "Four On-
ions," pictured here. (Photo

WORKSHOP


sized the importance of own-
ers knowing their property's
designated land use and
that of adjoining properties.
She said planners are often
told by neighbors when de-
velopments are approved, "I
had no idea that this could
go in next to us."
Workshop attendees re-
ceived handouts showing
the various future land use
districts, corresponding al-
lowable densities and a list
of uses allowed.
"The emphasis is not a
wholesale change to the (fu-
ture land use) map," Blacks-
hear told the gathering.
She noted that, while
there have been some re-
quests for increased build-
ing density by some prop-
erty owners, this is for the
most part not possible. -
"We don't have the infra-
structure for much higher
densities," she said.
The only strategy she en-
visioned for increasing den-
sity in selected areas where
appropriate was to transfer
unused density from devel-
opments of regional impact
(DRIs), with the permission
of those entities.
Alan Ficarra was con-
cerned about the amount of
native vegetation that was
being removed because of
requirements for retention
ponds in conjunction with
development projects.
Blackshear agreed that
existing county require-


ments often encourage "non-
green" designs. She strongly
favored rectifying that situ-
ation.
There was general agree-
ment that the stormwater
design portion of the com-
prehensive plan was in need
of revision and strengthen-
ing for greater environmen-
tal protection.
Grace Marse said she was
dismayed to see the increase
in private docks on the coun-
ty's dune lakes.
Blackshear agreed, com-
menting that it was her.
feeling that there should be
a limit on the size of docks.
in the interest of protecting
the dune lakes.
She added that new peo-
ple coming into the area
often do not realize the deli-
cate nature of the environ-
ment in Walton County.
Walton County District
5 Commissioner Cipdy
Meadows was present and
addressed problems with
adjoining property owners'
usurping the right-of-way
and other public areas.
"There is a sense going
around that this is mine,
stay off of it...I can build
on the right-of-way, on the
lake, I can build anywhere
I want," Meadows comment-'
ed.
, It was her opinion that
if these people were told to
remove what they had built
or placed on public property
without any agreement with


the county, "it would send a
message."
Peter Horn also expressed
disapproval of landowners
"turning the right-of-way
into part of their property."
Meadows encouraged
residents who are being
blocked from use of accesses
or other public areas in this
way by adjacent landowners'
to contact the county.
Other citizens expressed
concern about what type of
uses would be allowed in
neighborhood commercial
* areas in their community.
Blackshear responded that
this was another areas
where revisions were need-
ed to better define neighbor-
hood commercial uses.
"Now is the time for us to
look at the weaknesses in
this plan," she concluded,
requesting additional citi-
zen comments to the plan-
ning department by email,
regular mail or telephone.
" The April 29 meeting was
part of a series of citizen
input meetings, to be held
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex, each devoted
to one of the 11 south Wal-
ton County communities or
group of adjacent communi-
ties.

The next meeting of the
series will be devoted to the
Miramar Beach area. It is
scheduled for 5-6:30 p.m. on
May 14 in the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.

The reports are in
and the word is
that "tourism is
solid." Both Walton
County and
Okaloosa County
showed increases
in tourism over last
year and both
predict a solid
summer of tourist
flow.
--.------------------------------------
After 2006 and 2007
seeing a slow spring and
summer tourism season,
2008 has shown signs of an
upswing in tourism and
destination travel to the
Emerald Coast. They are
coming to the area in
droves, though not in
records and many
properties are trying to get
their attention to bring in
the crowds of 2004-05.
It seems that ever since
the hurricane season of
2005, not as many condos
and homes have been
booked all along the 30A
corridor. But since 2006,
the instability of the
economy and a constant
rise in gas prices, there has
been an alarming jump in
foreclosures, tourists have
been somewhat leary of
taking vacations and
paying ever-rising gas
charges and rental fees.
Walton County has


Art Clips


t -ih I l � , [ /lfa L /
(',j L~t �.l ~ec ,. [ij&t3,


events that are bringing in
people year-round and
keeping a steady flow of
traffic on the roads and
heads in beds. Events such
as the Cultural Arts
Association's ArtsQuest and
the West Indies Market
that both take place this
coming weekend, are two
events that pull in out-of-
town guests, as well as,
locals.

The Seabreeze Jazz
Festival that took place two
weeks ago at Gulf Place,
brought in a record 15,000
people and more than $2
million in tax revenue for
the week of the event. But
once again, due to county
codes, limited venue space
and constant, ever-
changing charges, the
biggest and most profitable
event in the county, said
farewell and makes its
move to Bay County in
2009.
Unlike other events that
are mostly attended by
locals, with a few tourists
thrown into the mix, the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival put


Walton County on the
cultural map and brought
international recognition,
due to the fact that this
year's event was the only
smooth jazz festival
throughout the nation that
saw an increase in
revenue, sponsorship,
ticket sales and
attendance.
But like all good things,
it has come to an end.
There will always be
tourists making their way
to the beaches of South
Walton, there will always
be activities for them, as
well as locals to participate
in and there will always by
the crystal waters of the
Gulf of Mexico that will
entice tourists to make
their way to the Emerald
Coast. But Apalachicola,
Tampa, Pensacola and
other Gulf Coast cities and
counties offer the same
thing and without the high
fees.
Walton County will feel
the impact next year, if not
already, from the venue
change of the Seabreeze
Jazz Festival. The locals


will continue to find it
easier to get into their
favorite watering hole or
restaurant, due to the
smaller crowds vying for a
table and more and more
homes along the coastline
will be for rent and on the
foreclosure list, before the
economy has a chance to
take a turn.
So as we go into another
tourist season and we begin
to see the crowds emerge
onto the beaches of Walton
County, the activities that
have been planned and
organized, need our
support. They are here to
entice the tourists, put
heads in beds and provide
hours of entertainment and
cultural diversity to us
locals.

about the CAA ArtsQuest
and their week of activities,
call 622-5970. For further
information about this
weekend's West Indies
Market at Rosemary Beach,
call Hilltop Productions at
951-2148.
If we don't support them
and leave the festival traffic
up to just out-of-towners,
these events will also wrap
it up in Walton County and
Bay County might see a lot
more cultural events that
brought this county its
national recognition and
made it-the cultural mecca
that it has become over the
past 20 years.


HUNDREDS WILL MAKE THEIR WAY to Rosemary
Beach this weekend for the first of three West Indies
Markets. More than 50 artists will line the lawns in a
variety of media ranging from paintings and pottery, to
jewelry and sculpture.

ditional 2.5 acres of wetlands into a
perpetual conservation easement,

petition for an administrative hearing
is timely filed under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes as
provided below.

The subject property is located
on Dorsey Road, unnamed wetlands,
Class 111 Waters of the State, Prohib-
ited Shellfish Harvesting Area Sec-
tion 25, Township 3-North, Range
19-West latitude 30' 43' 14" North,
longitude 86* 5' 20" West, Walton
County.

The procedures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial in-
terests are affected by the Depart-
ments action may petition for an.
administrative proceeding. (hearing).,
under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes. The petition
must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department
of 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.

Because the administrative hear-
ing process is designed to redeter-
mine final agency action on the a+-
plication, the filing of a petition for
an administrative hearing may result
in a modification of the permit and
lease, or even a denial of the applica-
tion. Accordingly, the applicant is ad-
vised not towcommence construction
or other activities under this permit/
lease until the deadlines below for
filing a petition for an administrative
hearing, or request for an extension
of time have expired.

Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the
Florida Administrative Code, a per-
son whose substantial interests are
affected by the Departments action
may also request an extension of time
to file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A timely request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning time period for filing a petition
until the request is acted upon. If a
request is filed late, the Department
may still grant it upon a motion by
the requesting party showing that the
failure to file a request for an exten-
sion of time before the deadline was
the result of excusable neglect.

In the event that a timely and suf-
ficient petition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by the outcome of the administrative
process have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Inter-
vention will be only at the discretion
of the presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Administra-
tive Code.

28-106.111(2) and 62-110.106(3)(a)

hearing by the applicant must be

notice under section 120.60(3) of the

the buyers become available, and qualified. The Contract with the buyers will
incorporate the Agreement with,.WCWFHC. arid will include an obligation to
deliver tum-key homes, including appliances and landscaping, at the pre-
determined prices. The Agreement between WCWFHC and the Builder will
be an obligation and exclusive right to contract with all buyers in Phase One
for a period of three years. The Proposal may include terms allowing price
increases based on relevant criteria or indexes.
The Builder will offer only three basic floor plans and sizes, ranging from
1000 to 1500 square feet (each plan different by at least 175 square feet),
each with three bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The smallest floor plan will
have an alternate plan, with the only difference being two bedrooms instead
of three. Additionally, the Builder will provide, as options, three upgrade pack-
ages for each floor plan, a front and rear porch (if not included in the basic
plan), and a one-car and two-car garage.-
The layout of the plans should be similar, with the only basic difference
being size. The plans will.have widths and depths that can fit on a Ibt that is
50' wide by 120' long, with 71/2' side setbacks, 20' front setbacks, and 15'
rear setbacks. Additionally, the width will allow for a 10-foot driveway (can be
in the setbacks) to access the rear of the home, and the rear of the home will
have room for parking two average-size cars. Each plan will have a rear en-
trance, not from a bedroom, which will provide direct access to a rear parking
area or deck.
To assure that the homes can be resold to households within 140% ofAMI
(Area Median Income), the builder will not be allowed to contract with any
Buyer to build anything other than the three floor plans and options presented
in the Proposal and accepted by WCWFHC.
The Builder will be required to build a model home, to be used as offices
and as a model of a typical home. The Builder may contribute to the market-
ing effort and will receive points based on the extent of involvement in the
marketing effort.
2.2 WORK SCHEDULE
The Builder will begin entering into Construction Contracts with buyers
when the development of lots is completed and the buyers are qualified.
WCWFHC guarantees no starting date or any number of buyers, but provides
the following information so that the Builder may estimate the starting date
and the rate and timing of Construction Contracts with buyers:
1. After selection of the Builder, WCWFHC is required to provide under-
writing information concerning the Builder for the CWHIP grant.
2. The underwriting process is estimated to take 4 to 6 weeks, after the
Builder is selected by WCWFHC..
3. After the underwriting is completed, WCWFHC will begin development
of the lots (construction of the infrastructure). This is estimated to take 6 to 9
months.
4. During the period that the lots are being developed, WCWFHC will
solicit and accept reservation agreements from prospective buyers.
5. After lots are ready for house construction, Builder will proceed expedi-
tiously with Construction Contracts and construction of homes.
2.3 ALTERNATE OR ADDITIONAL PROPOSAL.
Although not required, any Builder may add a proposal to completely
develop Wolf Creek, pursuant to the terms of the Contract to Develop. The
Contract to Develop contains the requirements if the Builder chooses to add
a proposal to develop and, if requested by the Builder, will be added to the
Request Package. Generally, the proposal to develop would be a proposal
by the Builder to, in addition to providing turn-key houses, totally develop
Phase One, including financing, constructing infrastructure, marketing, and
all other activities involved in development. The portion of the CWHIP grant
to be applied to each closing will be available as provided in the Contract to
Develop.

SIG N S CONTINUED FROM FRONT


Mugmon said. "We went'
through the design process
and explained to the group
when and why decisions
were made. Many discus-
sions were held about the
placement and number of
signs before our plan was
completed: At the April 29.
meeting, I stepped them
through the design process.
Before coming up with the
final plan, there were four
different designs offered
and they chose this one,"
he said. "I believe the colors
selected are reflective of the
area itself with white and
tan representing the beach-
es, blue for the water, and
the stripes going up the pole
are similar to those in use in
WaterColor," he noted. "The
CR-30A corridor itself fea-
tures such detailed architec-
ture that in designing a sign
system, we wanted to make
sure the signs reflected such
a high design influence."
Mugmon also showed
those in attendance all the
scenic design highway sig-
nage his firm has designed
over the years.
"We try to design to the
context of the place. If you
design in a box in your of-
fice, it doesn't take into ac-
count what the people want
or need. After being.burned
once, the people in Walton
County wanted to make sure
they got what they wanted
and needed."
Another big issue that
came up was the actual
number of signs to be erect-
ed. Mugmon said, "We have
52 signs on track to be re-
moved that we know of right
now, and there will prob-


ably be more. At the end of
the day, there will probably
be no more signs going up
than there are coming down
for Phase I. We want to keep
the signs to a minimum be-
cause this is a scenic high-
way. The average size of
the signs is two square feet,
as they are geared towards
people on foot."
Mugmon had high praise
for 'Dave Rauschkolb who
called for the first meeting
of all the groups concerned
with signs along CR-30A
on April 22 and who offered
to pay Mugmon's travel ex-
penses to attend the second
and final meeting. However,
Mugmon said his firm felt a
responsibility to pay for his
travel to the meeting to fully
explain the process used by
Glatting Jackson in coming
up with the plan.
Several attempts to reach
Rauschkolb were unsuccess-
ful.
"We left the meeting with
the agreement that the
county could move forward
with Phase I but with me
giving the county direction
in creating a comprehensive
sign program for CR-30A.
One consistent design pal-
ette for vehicular, gateway
and pedestrian signage,"
Mugmon emphasized.
. McClary said, "Had he
(Mugmon) not been at this
meeting, we would not be
where we are."

Fabrication of the signs
was to begin on May 1. Old
signs will be removed and all
the new signs should be up
and the crosswalks painted
by June 15.


FDDC fears more abuse when

service cuts take effect


The Florida Developmen-
tal Disabilities Council, Inc.
(FDDC) is concerned that
further cuts in services to
persons with developmental
disabilities could result in
more incidents such as the
arrest on April 30 of a Fort
Walton Beach man who al-
legedly abused a person
with a disability under his
care.
Carl Maycock, a former
caregiver at the Fort Wal-
ton Beach Developmental
Center, was charged with
one third-degree felony
count of abusing a disabled
person, according to reports.
In an affidavit, multiple
witnesses say he stripped
the victim of his clothing,
then pulled him from his
wheelchair and sprayed him
down with a hose for 15 to
20 minutes in an effort to
bathe him. The victim in
this incident has cerebral
palsy and mental, retarda-
tion and is unable to speak.
This incident, which alleg-
edly occurred in September
2007, and the abusive treat-
ment of Brian D. Sterner
by a Hillsborough County
Sheriffs Office deputy in
February 2008, both draw
attention to alarmingly poor
treatment of Florida's most
vulnerable citizens.
"During the 2008 legisla-
tive session, the Council con-


tinued to push to preserve
services for individuals with
developmental disabilities,"
said Debra Dowds, Execu-
tive Director of the FDDC.
Dowds explained that dur-
ing the 2007 legislative ses-
sion, lawmakers approved
major service reductions,
elimination of some servic-
es, and caps on the amount
of services the state will
now provide to persons with
developmental disabilities.
During the 2008 session,
lawmakers cut provider
rates by 5.5 percent. Dowds
added that huge cuts in pro-
vider care funding will have
a devastating impact.
The FDDC, which advo-
cates respect and inclusion
for people with disabilities,
worries that impending cuts
in services and provider
rates could further cripple
an already troubled system.
"We believe these chang-
es will negatively impact
the lives of individuals with
disabilities who live in this
state and could result in fur-
ther incidents such as those
that occurred in Hillsbor-
ough County and Fort Wal-
ton Beach," said Enrique
Escallon, council chairman.
"This is a violation of a per-
son's human rights, and we
believe there is a potential
for further violations."
