WCSO employee refutes

anonymous letter


By ALICIA LEONARD
Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO) Communi-
cations Supervisor Donna
Smith has a bone to pick
with someone. Only one
problem, it's hard to rebuke
a complaint personally when
it was filed anonymously.
The complaint, filed with
the Florida Department of
State Division of Elections,
was filed by an anonymous
employee and listed Smith
as one of the employees that
were supposedly asking
deputies to sign voter peti-
tion forms for incumbent
Sheriff Ralph Johnson. The
Herald-Breeze first pub-
lished the contents of the
complaint after confirming
that the complaint had been
received and accepted by the


state. It was turned over to
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement for inves-
tigation.
Smith agreed to a meet-
ing with the Herald-Breeze
to get her side out to the
public.
Smith said, "I have
worked here for eight year.
Sheriff McMillian original-
ly hired me and was good
enough to give me a job and
I try to do the best job possi-
ble. I am loyal to my depart-
ment as a whole, not just the
sheriff and to the citizens of
Walton County, as well. I
want to clear the record and
say I have not signed a peti-
tion. I have never requested
another employee to sign a
petition and I have certainly
never called a deputy from


off the road to pick up or
sign a petition."
Smith said she feels that
politics doesn't have room
at her job and is something
very personal. "Voting is
something that is personal
and private. I believe ev-
eryone should vote as they
want and it's not something
I would do, to tell someone
how to vote, especially on
the clock."
Smith said no matter who
occupies the office of sher-
iff, she would feel the same
way. "If Sheriff Johnson
doesn't get re-elected, I will
continue to do a good job for
the department and citizens
of Walton County as the
communications supervisor

LOCAL COLLEGE STUDENTS will be able to stay clos-
er to home, save money and get a better degree because of
OWC's inclusion into a new state college program. Shown
here are some of the final graduates of Okaloosa Walton Col-
lege. The college will likely change its name to reflect its new
status.


Big- changes at OWC


The Okaloosa-Walton
College (OWC) 2008 com-
mencement was the larg-
est graduating class in the
college's history with 1,902
graduates per their press
announcement.
However, the release not-
ed that "This year's record
number of graduates could-
well be the last to graduate
from OWC. Due to current
legislation that would con-
vert OWC into a state col-
lege, this year's commence-
ment was very possibly the
college's final commence-
ment as Okaloosa-Walton
College. The legislation,
which names OWC as part of


a prestigious group of com-
munity colleges that would
be formally converted into
new state colleges would
mean OWC will likely be
completely re-named in the
coming year."
OWC was one of three
colleges that were included
in. the, bill that passed in
late March of this year. The
state college designation
would would place OWC be-,
tween the state university
system and the community
college system. With around
16,0000 students attending
OWC it would still focus on
area students needs while
slowly expanding to offer


more bachelor degrees to
area students. More staff
and even dormitories are
in future plans. University
of West Florida (UWF) and
OWC have already agreed
to try and coordinate on a
larger scale and not dupli-
cate programs'unless neces-
sary.
The bill was introduced
and passed'in the state's ef-
fort to give more citizens the
chance to earn a four-year
degree. Under the state col-
lege bill, OWC still has to of-
fer two-year degrees, cannot
offer graduate degrees and

Walton County may soon have animal shelter


By DOTTY NIST
After at least a decade of
efforts in the direction of a
county-owned animal shel-
ter, it now looks likely that
Walton County will soon
have such a facility.
The shelter is to be con-
structed on county-owned
property on Triple G Road
north of DeFuniak Springs,
near the county landfill and
new jail.
In February, in the face
of the challenge of recent re-
ductions in the county bud-
get, commissioners voted to


seek proposals from firms
capable of designing and
building a basic shelter for a
maximum guaranteed price
below the amount budgeted
for the facility, $2.9 million.
Until that time, the com-
missioners had been look-
ing at plans ,finalized in
late 2005 for a more elabo-
rate facility. Bids in connec-
tion with those plans had
been rejected after County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
pointed out that even the
lowest bid would have re-
sulted in a total over the


budgeted amount, once costs
for water and sewer lines,
tap fees, electrical connec-
tions, fencing and estimated
change orders were taken
into account. For the past
couple of years, it has been
difficult to fund projects that
exceed budgeted amounts.
The county's advertise-
ment for bids, on a design/
construct facility got a good
response, with nine firms
responding by the dead-
line. A number of those
firms did public presenta-
tions at the May 27 Walton


County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing. Commissioners asked
questions about the firms'
proposals and then did in-
dividual ratings to allow for
the selection of several top
firms.
When the ratings had
been tabulated, Bell an-
nounced that Dooley Mack
Constructors of Northwest
Florida had been rated best,
followed by Design Build
Systems, Inc. and Hogan
Construction Group of Flor-
ida, L.L.C.


Bids from all three of the
top-choice firms came in
under $2 million, according
to figures provided by the
county finance department.
Bell was directed to meet
with Dooley Mack represen-
tatives and try to negotiate
a contract for design and
construction of the animal
shelter. If that is successful,
the company has pledged a
nine-month time frame for
the design/build process.
Bell was authorized to ap-

New Mossy


Head park nears


completion


The first public park in
Mossy Head is nearing com-
pletion. The park sits next
to a new elementary school
now under construction on
U.S. 90 in Mossy Head near
SR-285 South. The new
3-acre park will comprise a
walking trail, playground,
picnic pavilion and a splash
park. It will also have drink-
ing water and restroom fa-
cilities.
"This new park will be a
great addition to the Mossy
Head community," said Dis-
trict 3 Commissioner Larry
Jones. "We can even expand
the park in the future, since
it rests on 20 acres of un-
developed land which also


joins the neighboring school
property," he said, referring
to the new Mossy Head El-
ementary School scheduled
to open in August. Fund-
ing for the $250,000 park is
mostly from grants from the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection.
The new park will also
serve future Mossy Head
residents of a new develop-
ment overlooking an 18-hole
golf course now under con-
struction less than a few
hundred yards away. An
enlarged water .pipe sys-
tem is also being installed
throughout Mossy Head to

Safety light, at Rock


Hill and U.S.331


A dangerous Walton
County intersection is now
safer to drive through at
night. Utility workers of
CHELCO (Choctawhatchee
Electric Cooperative) in-
stalled a new safety light
on May 29, at the intersec-
tion of Rock Hill and U.S.
331 (10 miles south of De-
Funiak Springs) which will
illuminate the area. Walton
County commissioners pur-
chased the light and had it
installed as part of a new
county traffic safety initia-
tive to brighten high-traffic
areas at night.
"We're proud to see the


light go up," said District 1
County Commissioner Scott
Brannon, as he watched util-
ity workers install the large
pole and lighting fixture
Thursday morning on the
west side of U.S. 331. "Many
constituents had called my
office about this dark area
of 331 and asked to have it
illuminated," he says. "To-
day's installation is a direct
result of their concern and
is made possible through
the local funding of a new
county initiative to identify
high-traffic areas in need of
improved lighting."
CHELCO leaders had


been working with state of-
ficials for several months'to
obtain state Department of
Transportation (D.O.T.) per-
mits to install the fixture.
"Our hope is that citi-
zens who frequently drive
through this area of U.S.
331 and Rock Hill Road at
night will feel safer with im-
proved visibility," said Bran-
non. "Many Walton County
roads are now illuminated
with these new lights, and
we'll continue to identify
more busy roads in need of
illumination."


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 5,2008


DFSPD holds "spike training"


On Friday, May 30, 2008,
the Defuniak Springs Police
Department (DFSPD) host-
ed factory training for the
Stinger spike tire deflation
Device. Approximately 25
field training officers, shift
supervisors and agency in-
structors from three agen-
cies, the DFSPD, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) and the Niceville
police, took part in the train-
ing.
Bryan Groce, a factory
representative and instruc-
tor, traveled to DeFuniak
Springs and presented the
training at no cost to the


agencies. The training which
is classified as a "train the
trainer course of instruc-
tion," teaches the officers
who attended the proper de-
ployment process and main-
tenance requirements of
this system along with how
.to teach their subordinates
in the proper use, care, and
safety considerations when
deploying .the system. The
training was held at the De-
Funiak Springs Community
Center followed by a hands-
on practical exercise involv-
ing the actual deployment
of the system against real
vehicular traffic which was


conducted at the DeFuniak
Springs Airport.
Even though several
agencies within the state
of Florida have and use
the Stinger spike tire de-
flation device this training
is not available within the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's Criminal
Justice Training Center's
curriculum and is deemed
necessary for the safety of
citizens and the officers who
use the system. All of the at-
tendees the training session
will receive factory certifica-
tion as an instructor for this
system.

the local company, said this
would be their first animal
shelter but that they have
done many projects with
similarities, such as prisons,
jails and medical facilities.
Freshour added a current

of Northwest Florida proj-
ect is the new Walton High
School and that the compa-
ny has saved the school dis-
trict $600,000 on the project
cost.
Robert Lee of the local
Dooley Mack office com-
mented on May 29 that the
company prepared prelimi-
nary plans based exactly on
the county's specifications.


The facility would consist of
an 8,400-square-foot metal
administrative building and
a separate 7,700-square-foot
concrete masonry kennel fa-
cility with 80 runs, he noted.
The plans call for connection
with city water and sewer.
Lee said the company's
first step once on board
would be to finalize the de-
sign plans, followed by ob-
taining permits for the proj-
ect.
Since 2002, stray ani-
mals picked up in Walton
County have been shel-
tered in Washington County
through a contractual agree-
ment with Animal Control
Services of West Florida
in Chipley. The contract
has had its supporters, but
for years many residents
have called for "bringing
the animals back to Walton
County." Others have stated
that they would prefer not
spending money outside the
county to shelter animals.
Information on Walton
County Animal Control,
including photos of stray
cats and dogs picked up
by officers, is available on
the county Web site, www.
co.walton.fl.us. The depart-
ment may also be contacted
by phone at 892-8682.

The Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) re-

around 12:04 a.m. from a
man and woman living on
Woodlands Boulevard. The
couple reported that they
had returned home and
discovered that one of their
bedroom windows had been
broken out. After enter-

noise coming from one of the
other bedrooms and went in
to see what the noise was.
Someone was hidden under
a blanket on the bed. After
being confronted, the in-
truder jumped up off of the
bed and grabbed the woman
by the throat. Then a fight
broke out between the in-
truder and the man. The
suspect ran out of the house
and into the woods. As soon
as the first deputy arrived
and made sure the victims
were all right, a perimeter
was set up until other depu-

Tracking dogs from the

Little



steps



BY BRUCE COLLIER
I recently had a talk with Rep. Don Brown, whose term
in the Florida Legislature ends this fall. I will be writing
up that interview for next week's edition, but something
he said struck me as a suitable taking-off point for an edi-
torial.
Brown spoke of "incremental" changes in the public's
attitude and perceptions, -and how they can lead a coun-
try in any direction, good or bad. Wars, revolutions and
natural catastrophes bring great lurching changes, shock-
ing people into or out of their normal way of life. When
they happen, they attract attention. But what about the
more ordinary stuff, the little tsunamis battering away at
us quietly? Here are two examples.
A few weeks ago I saw a movie at a newly-built shopping
center near Panama City. I got there early and walked
around. This was before Memorial Day so the tourist count
was low, but the locals were out in force. Mobile phones
were everywhere. Every other person, including couples
and groups, was talking to someone that was not there.
Long talks, too.
Don't get me wrong, I think mobile phones are a great
idea. They save lives, they get emergency assistance to
where it's needed, and they enable people to get things
done during heretofore "dead" time. However, like televi-
sion, they have a negative side. They cause driver distrac-
tion. They interrupt dinners, concerts and movies. Also,
their text-messaging function is turning the English lan-
guage into a semiotic daisy-chain of sub-literate digital
grunts and whistles. I can pick up languages pretty well,
but OMG, BTW, and FYI, I am not LOL about this new
one.
What's really astonishing is how they are being market-
ed to us. It's all about "choices," "freedom," and indepen-
dence. Anyone being led around by something the size of a
Hershey bar even one with personalized ringtones is not
independent. If you doubt me, get between someone and
their mobile sometime, and watch the look on their face.
I like to go to food stores groceries, supermarkets, bak-
eries, and specialty stores. I will walk into one with no in-
tention of buying anything, just to see what's there. I also
like to see what people are buying. It's now possible to buy
an entire week's worth of food breakfast, lunch and din-
ner canned, frozen, and packaged to heat and eat, plates
included. The food looks real enough pasta and seafood,
roast beef and vegetables, mac and cheese, etc. but the
list of ingredients that went into it reads like an organic
chemistry project.
In his recent book, "In Defense of Food," Michael Pollan
calls these simulacra "edible foodlike substances" that have
been sold to the American eating public as "convenient"
and "healthy" alternatives, ideally suited to our fast-paced
lifestyles. I don't know whose lifestyles they mean, since
American obesity is at an all-time high and nobody ever
got obese by pacing fast.
This didn't happen overnight. It just crept up on us, in
little steps, to the point where preparing a meal involves.
a keypad and a family dinner means everyone's eyes are
glued to the same show.
Nobody made us go this way. The good news is, we can
still go back, in little steps. We can still buy the raw ma-
terials of a meal and make it ourselves without being
Emeril Lagasse, and without watching Rachael Ray. We
can still insist on face-to-face conversation. We can even
turn off our mobiles and collect messages later, like when
we're physically alone. That used to be called courtesy.
Life might slow down, but time really is relative. I grew
up in a quiet house, and I prize its benefits. Quiet allows
reflection, whether for reading, thinking, prayer or just
daydreaming. I also of necessity have learned how to
cook, and I prefer doing it. Eating food you prepared your-
self takes time, but at least you know and can pronounce
- what you're putting into your body.
All this assault on our senses and bodies in the name
of speed and convenience has done little but make us un-
healthy, mentally and physically. We have access to bil-
lions of bits of information ("...of making many books there
is no end." Who knew Ecclesiastes foresaw text-messag-
ing?) but we are dumber and less articulate than perhaps
at any time in our history. We are eating more, but worse,
than any society on earth, and reaping the consequences of
cumulative malnutrition.
Incremental change can heal, as well as hurt, but before
we take little steps in any direction, we first have to stand
still. It won't kill us. Quite the contrary.

Editor:
Dotty Nist, in writing the article "Meadows won't seek
re-election" has brought news of a significant political loss
to Walton County.
Her story neatly, covers the many exceptional services
Ms. Meadows, Commissioner to our District 5, has be-
stowed upon a largely unappreciative constituency. Now,
with Cindy's hiatus to "recharge her batteries" close at
hand, we have missed the opportunity to coax or demand
that she run again for office. Perhaps she will reconsider.
In twenty years of blessed residency in Miramar Beach, I
have never experienced a more dedicated, fair-minded pub-
lic servant to our community. If we can't have Cindy Mead-
ows, let us be scrupulous in evaluating those who hope to
succeed her. We have.had the best, let us demand more of
the same.

I had the pleasure of attending the Heritage Festival
(Neal McCormick Day) for the first time last Saturday. What
a blast that was. The music, entertainment, and food were
absolutely fantastic. The laid-back atmosphere was very
conducive to meeting friends both new and old. Congratu-
lations to all of those tireless volunteers that worked so
hard to put on what is certainly going to become a "must-
see" annual event in DeFuniak Springs.

As a member of the Walton High School Class of 1958, it
was my pleasure to attend the celebration of the 50th an-
niversary of our graduation last weekend. Approximately
60 percent of our classmates and spouses, along with a few
of our teachers, enjoyed a wonderful reunion at the Shrine
Building on Hwy. 90 W in DeFuniak Springs.
The building was beautifully decorated in our blue and
white school colors, with several pictures.and lots of memo-
rabilia. We listened to music from our era, enjoyed lots of
delicious food, and shared memories until rather late into
the night on both Friday and Saturday nights:
At one point on Saturday night, we paused for a few
minutes to pay tribute to 24 of our classmates who were
still with us only in memory. This was a very solemn mo-
ment that surely brought a tear to many of our eyes.
Some of our classmates spent many hours in planning
and preparation for this memorable event. This is a fact
evidenced by the successful outcome of their efforts. Space
will not permit naming all who had a part in this produc-
tion, but at least one must be recognized Thank you, Ger-
aldine Wilkerson McFatter!

Editor:
Last weeks story on former SWCMCD director Gary
D'Andrea begs furthur investigation as the facts as pre-
sented are misleading. D'Andrea states that the average
mosquito control director in Florida makes $106,000 per
year which is in the ballpark of the $116,000 he was being
paid.
However, South Walton is considerably smaller than
most mosquito control. With a budget of less than $2 mil-
lion a year D'Andrea was taking home more than five per-
cent of the total budget.
I'm pretty sure that there aren't many public servants
who even come close to doing that.

Sheriff and BCC



working on 911 debacle


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) and Walton Coun-
ty Sheriff Ralph Johnson
each presented their sides
of the argument over fund-
ing for the 911 system with
the Florida Administration
Commission, which is made
up of Gov. Charlie Crist
and his Cabinet. The staff
listened to arguments from
both sides and suggested
that Johnson re-approach
the BCC and request fund-
ing for the system again.
The Administration Com-
mission pushed back the
June 4 and June 10 hearing
dates until a tentative date
of July 29 was set to be able
to facilitate an agreement
between Johnson and the
BCC.
Timing could be a factor
in the request. The meet-
ing will have to be approved
when the BCC reconvenes
on June 9 and the public
meeting between Johnson
and the BCC will have to be
advertised for two weeks to
meet public notice require-
ments. Johnson said, "They
suggested we try and work
it out again and that's what
we are going to try and do,"
said Johnson. "We are aim-
ing for the June 24 meeting,
so tentatively, it might be
scheduled then."
BCC chairman Larry
Jones said the panel that
heard testimony from both
sides had done their home-
work. "They were very well-
prepared and in the end,
they suggested the sher-
iff request another public
meeting and from my un-.
derstanding, that request
was put in this last Friday
afternoon."
"I was trying to do some-
thing good for the people of
this county, plain and sim-
ple," said Walton County
Sheriff Ralph Johnson dis-
cussing the hearing held in
Tallahassee last week over
the $311,431 Motorola Cor-
poration bill for the WCSO
to be in compliance as a sec-
ondary call center for 911
emergencies. "I had the ex-
cess funds and I just wanted
us to be in compliance."
Matt Burns, an attorney.
for Johnson, said the thrust
off the BCC's opening argu-
ment during the beginning
of the meeting was that the
WCSO being a Public Safety
Answering Point (PSAP)
for the the Emergency Op-
eration Center (EOC) was a
matter of convenience, but
not a necessity. "By the time
the hearing was over, I think
that point was not pushed
when testimony revealed
that this would make Wal-
ton the only county in Flori-
da where the Sheriffs office
was not a PSAP. I don't feel
like they were expressing
the point as much as they
were pointing out they be-
lieve they have the author-
ity to make that change. It


was a little unsettling to
hear that the system might
be considered a convenience
and not a matter of public
safety."
That interpretation was
puzzling to Walton County
Commissioner Sara Co-
mander, who attended the
hearing. When asked about
Burns' comments about
the PSAP, Commissioner
Comander responded, "We
have many back-ups in
place in our county for 911


calls. We have the South
Walton Fire Department,
the DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department,. as well as
a portable PSAP we can use.
But we have not discussed
in any way that I am aware
of whether the WCSO would
not be a secondary PSAP.
That would have to come in
front of the commissioners
as a staff recommendation
to even consider it."
Burns also insisted the
Florida Statue's regarding


St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church
will host a FUNDRAISER on
Saturday, June 14, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
for the Eric Broadway family
to help offset medical expenses.

Eric was critically injured in a roofing accident April 22 and is
currently undergoing rehabilitation. The parish family will hold a
yard sale, bake sale and silent auction. There will also be food
vendors, music and antique car show and children's activities.
Donations of items for the yard sale may be left at the rear of
the church.

the way the sheriffs office
handles funds or encum-
brances is also a gray area.
"This is a part of the whole
problem. The way that
funds can be encumbered,
per say, by the sheriffs of-
fice. There are no statutory
guidelines as to the sheriffs
office when encumbering
funds. There is a separate
statute that applies to sher-
iffs budgeting than applies
to county budgeting. The
sheriffs statue says you are
supposed to expense this
amount against the year it
was incurred, which seems
to cause a conflict with the

American Red Cross disaster relief fund nears empty


With $6,200 in the relief fund, hurricane season looms


The American Red Cross
responded to two fires over
this past weekend ending
an unprecedented month of
house fires and disaster re-
lief financial assistance. A
total of 64 people required
emergency housing, cloth-
ing and food. In some cases
emergency mental health
and health were also pro-
vided. In May, the Ameri-
can Red Cross responded to
17 house fires, depleting the
remainder of the Red Cross
disaster relief budget. In all,
$8,883 dollars were spent on
direct financial assistance
to clients. To date there is a
little over $6,200 in the di-
saster relief budget. "I know
the community values the
services we provide and will
step up to support this wor-
thy cause" said Diane Con-
nors, chairman of the board
for the Red Cross. "We are


LETTER

here. No matter who is thE
sheriff, I would never do th(
things that this anonymous
complaint has listed."
When asked why she was
named.. in the complaint
Smith +said, "You know

always there in time of need;
I know that our communi-
ties want us to continue to
be there."
"This budget deficit comes
at a hectic time of the year,"
said Sheri Frost, CEO for
the American Red Cross.
"We don't normally see this
many fires affecting this
many people this late in the
year. The downside is that
our disaster budget, which
normally carries us through
to the end of our fiscal year,
is nearly depleted. As we
enter hurricane season we
must replenish this,fund to
ensure there is money for
hurricane response. Shel-
ters, mobile feeding and cli-
ent casework in support of
a hurricane operations and
are not an option. We must
provide them so we must
raise the money to re-supply
the fund."


The American Red Cross
encourages families to get
ready for hurricane season
by building a kit, making a
plan, and volunteering. In
addition, this year the Red
Cross is asking for support
for the relief fund. Anyone
can, make a donation by con-
tacting the American Red
Cross at 1-800-773-7620
or on line at www.yourred-
cross.org.
The public can help the
victims of thousands of di-
sasters across the country
each year, disasters like
single family house fires
and hurricanes, by making
a financial gift to the Ameri-
can Red Cross disaster relief
fund. This fund enables the
Red Cross to provide shelter,
food, counseling and other
assistance to victims of di-
sasters. The American Red
Cross honors donor intent.

defense against the disturb-
ing agent.
The central purpose of
a fever is to raise the body
temperature in order to es-
tablish a new "set point."
This process differs from a
simple elevation in temper-
ature in that it is limited by
the workings of a cybernetic
type (homeostatic) feedback
control similar to that of
a thermostat. Otherwise,
temperature would continue
to increase until it exceeded
109 degrees Fahrenheit ( a
temperature that is incom-
patible with the living pro-
cess).
What are some major
causes of fever?
Infection by microorgan-
isms (infectious disease),
inflammatory reactions and
reactions to the body's own
tissues (phlebitis, rheuma-
toid arthritis, vasculitis,
etc), defects in the immune
system network, tissue de-
struction, neoplastic pro-
cesses (cancer), metabolic
disturbances, and the ad-
ministration of foreign sub-
stances (including antibiot-
ics). There is even a fever of
psychogenic origin.
Fever may be subject to


Life is a perpetual set of
interactions between the or-
ganism and its environment.
Whatever results from these
interactions, biologists call
evolution; the result being
beneficial to the organism
if it happens to allow it to
successfully integrate into
its environments. One of the
more beneficial of these de-
velopments is referred to as
the immune system.
The immune system
serves as the central core
of interpretation for all pro-
cesses concerning the inter-
action between microorgan-
isms and the living systems.
However, what we refer to as
fever is one of the few more
tangible indices of the work-
ings of the immune response
and is always included as a
vital sign when taking mea-
sure of the patient's current
status of disorder.
So.....
What is fever? We most
often consider fever to be tfhe
equivalent of an elevated
temperature. But true fever
is a composite of symptoms,
including elevated tempera-
ture, muscle shivering and
the narrowing of blood ves-
sels in the skin (vasocon-
striction and therefore the
typical pallor and dryness
we associate with illness).
There are four fundamen-
tal stages that characterize
the usual fever: increased
production of heat, de-
creased loss of heat and an
increase in heart rate and
respiration. This produces
the sensation of warmth.
The increase in heat de-
rives from a breakdown in a
special form of body fat and
is a generalized response to
a signal that a disturbance
is occurring somewhere
within the system. The in-
creased temperature stimu-
lates a release of additional
signals that specify the ac-
tual nature of the distur-
bance so that the body can
then launch a target-specific

changes ranging from barely
perceptible fluctuations in
temperature to wide swings
over the course of hours to
days. Generally, it will be
higher at night and lower in
the morning. In children un-
.der six months of age, fever
may be significantly elevat-
ed and cannot be used, by
itself, to correspond to the
seriousness of illness. In the
elderly, immune compro-
mised or debilitated, fever
is often undetectable.
Fever should generally
be regarded as a positive ad-
aptation; however there are
times when it may become
maldaptive. Many microbes,
for example, actually grow
more .rapidly at higher tem-
peratures and have evolved
a way to chemically manip-
ulate the immune response
to its own advantage. Fever
becomes a problem when it
is too high (greater than 104
degrees Fahrenheit) or lasts
too long (longer than two to
three weeks) and therefore
signifies a malignant pro-,
cess or an innately defective
immune status. Either case
is not good news.
As for home treatment, in
children and young adults,


avoid the use of aspirin.
Tylenol or ibuprofen may
be used according to direc-
tions. Treatment is most
appropriate when fever
equals or exceeds 104 de-
grees Fahrenheit. While vi-
tamins may help to prevent
many potentially infectious
disorders, they are contra-
dicted during the occur-
rence of fever because one
of the many consequences of
fever is to decrease the pro-
duction of copper, zinc, iron,
etc., thereby creating an en-
vironment unfavorable to
the growth of many patho-
gens. Therefore, hydration
and metabolic support (i.e.,
water, Pediolyte, Gatorade,
etc.) is the mainstay of home
treatment. Bathing in warm
(not cold) water also aids in
cooling the body.
Newborns to six months
of age with a high or low
temperature, anyone with
symptoms of stiff neck, con-
fusion, lack of energy, diffi-
cult to arouse, greater than
normal irritability, or sei-
zures: eye rolling, head jerk-
ing, tapping of hands/feet
and loss of bowel or urine
control should be treated by
a physician or ER staff.

THE SECOND ANNUAL bluegrass festival has become a major part of the Neal McCor-
mick Day celebration.




Neal McCormick Day


PAGE 11-A


By RON KELLEY
How does one celebrate
a great musician? With
great music, of course.
Neal McCormick was
an early country music
pioneer who called De-
Funiak Springs home. It
was McCormick who first
electrified steel guitars
and he was the first man
to ever play an electric
instrument on the Grand
01' Opry. The sound was
os loud, it knocked WSM
off the air.


McCormick was a friend
to some of the biggest
names in country music,
including Roy Acuff' and
Bill Monroe, among oth-
ers. He may be best ap-
preciated for having been
a close friend and mentor
to Hank Williams. Mc-
Cormick was one of the
few people who had any
positive influence on the
hard-drinking young su-
perstar. Williams had
joined McCormick's band
as a young man and


PEGGY O'NEAL, Neal McCormick's former wife, and
mother of sons Tommy and Neal Jr., was guest speaker at
the Heritage Museum.


played many local ven-
ues before finding fame
in Nashville. The two
remained close through-
out the rest of William's
fabled life. On New Years
Day in 1953, McCormick
was packing to join Wil-
liams as the newest mem-
ber of the Drifting Cow-
boys when news came of
William's untimely death
in West Virginia at the
age of 29.
The Walton County
Heritage Association and
Heritage Museum pre-
sented their third annual
Neal McCormick Day
on Saturday, May 31, in
the Lakeyard amphithe-
ater. For the second year,
the Museum presented a
music festival as part of
the day's activities. This.
year's event was made
possible thanks to a gen-
erous contribution from
Kathy McCormick and
JemCo Inc. Her contribu-
tion and support was not-
ed by Heritage officials at
the start of the festival,
though she was not pres-
ent to receive the plaque
and their thanks. Miss
Teen Walton County De-
vero Bogart was also on
hand to help with the fes-
tivities.
When performing, Neal
McCormick played stan-

dard country and Hawai-
ian melodies, as well as
gospel and Native Ameri-
can anthems. However,
the Neal McCormick Day
features a bluegrass fes-
tival, though country
and gospel tunes are also
played.
-...,Neal's former wife and
recording partner Peggy
O'Neal, a Creek Indian,
just like McCormick,
was the guest speaker in
the Museum. Later, she
joined sons Tommy and
"Nealie" (Neal Jr.) and
Tommy's wife, Mary, and
the rest of the band to
perform gospel music as
The McCormicks. Nealie
does not play music for
a living, but is a Geor-


gia police chief. Still, he
accompanied the rest of
the family and appeared
on stage with his mother
and brother as part of the
festivities to honor his fa-
ther.
Two wildly popular
local bluegrass bands
..also shared .the bill. The
WaCo Ramblers of Wal-
ton County have played
all over the South. Fans
had a chance to see them
up close as they gathered
round the omni-micro-
phone and played mostly'
"unplugged." They did
fine covers of other art-
ists' songs and played
some of their own, too.
The last group to per-
form was Dread Clampitt,


a bluegrass foursome that
features a smooth, crisp
style that would sound at
home on Garrison Keil-
lor's "Prairie Home Com-
panion" on NPR. Dread
.also played a wide variety
of tunes, including their
own compositions. The
.band xeceived- a,standing
ovation and did a curtain
call, "Goodnight." an aca-
ppella song that seemed
the perfect end to a per-
fect evening of music.
As Garrison Keil-
lor might say, "That's
the news from Lake De-
Funiak, where all the
women are strong, all the
men are good-looking and
all the children are above
average."


THE CROWDS CAME for music and no one left unsatisfied, thanks to good music and
great weather.

NAFI



hosts



career


fair

Education Director Pam
Hooks announces that she
is very pleased with May 9
Career Day activities host-
ed jointly by Walton Learn-
ing Center and the North
American Family Institute
(NAFI). "Walton Learning
Center is a charter school,
one of 350-plus in the state
of Florida; serving over
100,000 students. This lat-
est career day was held
to enhance the students'
academic success and the
school's financial efficiency,"
said Hooks.
Fourteen businesses from
the area sent representa-
tives to share the pros and
cons of their chosen occu-
pations with students. Stu-
dents, in turn, kept tally
sheets of the training re-
quired for each job, of typical
skills and duties considered
necessary for each field, and
of the usual positive aspects
or drawbacks of the work it-
self.
Among students' first
choice for occupations were
automotive because "they
make the most money," real
estate because "you get to
be your own boss," and radio
broadcasting because "Art
Dees has been able to do so
many interesting things."
NAFI Director Eddie
Morgan, who mingled with
students and presenters
throughout the event, had
this to say: "Today was a
huge success because these
boys have had a freebie op-
portunity to meet with mul-
tiple employers and to see
themselves in a real job sit-
uation. They have learned
that getting a job i& based
not only on training but also
on appearance, communica-
tion skills, and first impres-
sions. I see it as a win-win
situation." .
According to NAFI Train-
er Alonzo Hunter, "Carter
Day truly embodied our
mission statement, which
is to create a respectful and
responsible community. We
here at NAFI would like to
extend our hand in thanks
and gratitude for the sup-
port of all the presenters,
who embraced our residents'
need to connect with the re-
quirements of the working
world."
Motivational speakers
filled the afternoon sched-
ule. Stephanie Duenas,
Mike Stevens, Fred Carren-
der, and C.C. Fearson, from
both Okaloosa and Walton
counties, spoke from per-
sonal experience about set-
ting priorities that lead to
success in life as well as at
work.
Also sharing in the suc-
cessful career fest were ESE
aide Loren Lock, teach-
er aide Renee Campbell,
English teacher Dorothy
Daughtry, consultant Jo
Henderson, and the entire
NAFI and WLC staffs.

have a positive outcome
from it. They suggested we
come back and work it out
amongst ourselves and we
are very open to that sug-
gestion and will work to-
ward it."
Burns and Johnson both
said they would like this to
be resolved as amicably as
possible. Burns said, "We
want to work with them, get
this wrapped up and move
on."


Public Works Day working for the public


SBy REID TUCKER
The buzzword at this
year's Walton County Public
Works Day was "challeng-
ing," that is, the past year
hasn't been an easy one for
public works employees.
Walton County's Public
Works Day, part of Nation-
al Public Works Week, an
education campaign initi-
ated by the American Public
Works Association, aims at
giving customers a glimpse
at what's involved in keep-
ing public infrastructures in
shape, as well as recogniz-
ing the dedication of pub-
lic works employees. The
event, held Thursday, May
22, at the Wed Care Park in
DeFuniak Springs featured
equipment demonstrations
from the city and county
public works departments,
Walton County Emergency
Medical Services and both
city and county fire depart-
ments.
The combination of new
projects passed down by the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)"
and a statewide budget cut
approaching $6 billion com-
pared to the 2006-2007 fis-
cal year can make maintain-
ing the public infrastructure
a difficult proposition, said
DeFuniak Springs Public
Works Director Bill Hollo-
way. The increased taxes and
decreased budget have hit
public works the hardest in
purchasing new equipment
and keeping current equip-
ment in working order, he
said. And all the while, the
expectation of performance
on the part of public works
employees stays high.
"We try to keep up the
equipment and try to keep
providing the services that
people expect," Holloway
said. "Public works is not
an eight-hour-a-day job.
Employees are on call 24/7,
365 days a year. When peo-
ple turn on a faucet, they
expect to have water, and
that won't change no matter
what the budget is."
Walton County Commis-
sion Chairman Larry Jones
said bringing the public to
an understanding of the dif-


. ficulties and sacrifices faced
by public works is the rea-
son National Public Works
Week exists in the first
place.
"Public works are more
in-depth than just saying
'We need a road,"' Jones said
of the important educational
role Public Works Day plays.
"While a lot of it is visible,
there's a lot more that goes
on behind the scenes that
make maintaining public
infrastructures possible. It's
important for the public to
understand that."
Recently mandated by
the Florida DEP, the De-
Funiak Springs Water and
Sewer Department has be-
gun cataloging all of the
city's underground water
valves for entry into a long-
term maintenance plan in-
tended to eliminate the risk
of backflow contamination
in the event of an emergen-
cy. The process, ordinarily
made more difficult by hav-
ing to locate the lines run-
ning to the valves by dig-
ging, has been made easier
by the introduction of new
equipment last year, among
which is an integrated GPS
and Ground Penetration Ra-
dar (GPR) system. Once the
buried water, electric or gas
conduits are located using
the GPR, the information
is cross-referrenced with
digitally-enhanced satel-
lite images fed into the GPS
and from there entered into
the maintenance program's
map system for access in the
future.
The GPS system costs
about $12,000 including
software, said Computer-
Assisted Design/Drafting
Operator Sonny Ernis. The
cost to the city is offset due
to the reduction in man-
hours involved in locating
and mapping the under-
ground valve network.
"It's [the GPS system]
helped us out a lot," Ennis
said. "Right now my job is
to find all the valves, map
them and get them entered
into our maintenance pro-
gram, and this system has
made that job immeasur-
ably easier."


The problem of backflow
isn't just being addressed by
the city's Water and Sewer
Department. CH2MHill
OMI, Inc., the company
responsible for managing
wastewater treatment in
DeFuniak Springs, is in-
stalling backflow prevention
devices to its customer's wa-
ter meters that keep harm-
ful waste products from con-
taminating city water lines
should the city lose water
pressure.
CH2MHill OMI Lead Op-
erator Mike Bowling said,
ideally, all the customers on
his company's system would
be equipped with backflow
devices. The units cost be-
tween $175 and $300 and
require annual diagnostic
checks by OMI and city-ap-
proved testers at the cost of
$35. Bowling said the major-
ity of the public isn't aware
about the dangers of back-
flow contamination, and
OMI is actively involved in
getting the word out.
"Right now we're still
trying to educate the pub-
lic on their [the backflow
prevention devices]. impor-
tance. They're not cheap,
but they're a necessity for
businesses and many city
residents," Bowling said, ex-
plaining one of the benefits
of OMI's involvement at the
Public Works Day. "Public
Works Day is good for us
because it helps us get in-
formation out to the public
and them better understand
what we're trying to do."
There have been chal-
lenges at the county level,
too. Jones said the ever-
rising cost of fuel not only
means it costs more to op-
erate equipment, but pave
roads as well, since asphalt
is made from petroleum.
Walton County Deputy Pub-
lic Works Director Allen
Brown went so far as to call
fuel the county's "Achilles'
heel."
Making matters worse,
Jones said the future of the
state budget looks unprom-
ising, as Walton County is
already preparing to oper-
ate within the parameters
of a zero-percent increase in


funds from the 2007-2008 fis-
cal year. In fact, the county
predicts a further reduction
of $2 million to $3 million in
available state funds in the
2008-2009 budget, bringing
the budget cut to nearly $9
million since 2006-2007.
So far, county public
works officials have man-
aged to stave off effects of
the cuts by maximizing use
of equipment, in-house con-
struction, less reliance on
contractors and utilizing in-
mate labor. However,, Wal-
ton County Construction
Engineering Manager Ryan
Douglass said these same
cost-saving measures won't
work indefinitely, as there
simply won't be many more
millions of dollars left to cut
out of the county's operating
budget.
"We won't feel the ramifi-
cations of this [the extended
2008-2009 state budget cuts]
for years to come," Douglass
said.
In spite of these difficul-
ties, Walton County's public
works department complet-
ed several major projects
in the past year, not least
of which were resurfacing/
reconstructing Bruce Av-
enue in DeFuniak Springs,
complete with drainage up-
grades, building a bridge on
the CR-393 state hurricane
evacuation route, continued
renovation of the Walton
County courthouse and pav-
ing 12 dirt roads.
Though concerns over
the state budget were the
hot-button topic at the 2008
Public Works Day, that isn't
the only worry on the collec-
tive mind city and county
public works departments.
As the time nears for many
baby-boomers to retire, the
nationwide strain placed on
an increasingly aged public
infrastructure could prove
to be a serious problem, as
they take with them yeats
of institutional knowledge
public works rely on, she
said.
"A lot of people here [at
Public Works Day] know
where the underground
lines are because they laid
them in the first place," said


city manager for DeFuniak
Springs, Kim Kirby, refer-
encing the ongoing water
valve cataloging project and
the sophisticated equipment
needed to speed up the pro-
cess. "They [older public
works employees] don't need
GPS and ground penetrating
radar like we do today. That
hard-earned institutional
knowledge is what we're go-
ing to find hard to replace."
Still, despite the difficul-
ties faced by public works,
city and county officials re-
main optimistic about the
future of the profession,
with National Public Works
Week remaining an integral
component in the public's
understanding of all that
entails.
"I just don't think the
majority of the public un-
derstands the magnitude
of what public works em-
ployees do for their com-
munities," Allen said. "I'd
stack our guys up against
anybody, and I mean any-
body. The men and women
that make all this happen,
they dedicate their lives to
to their work as true public
servants."
Seigler said if there's one
downside to Public Works
Day, it's that too much em-
phasis gets placed on officials
rather than the individual
public works employees that
comprise the bulk of public
works departments.
"There is an extremely in-
dividual commitment on the
part of each individual in
public works," Seigler said.
"Our crews are craftsmen.
They take pride in their
work, often rather humbly."
Adam Yates, a municipal
worker with the city's Wa-
ter and Sewage Department
agreed, though true to Sei-
gler's statement, remained
rather humble about his
important, if behind-the-
scenes contribution to keep-
ing Walton County and De-
Funiak Springs running.
"We maintain every-
thing," Yates said. "If it
breaks or busts, we fix it.
It's an ongoing thing, and it
isn't always easy, but some-
one has to do this."

2007 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report of the Town of Paxton

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water meets
all federal and state requirements.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water
and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources.
We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from 2 wells. The wells draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment process required is chlorine for disinfection pur-
poses.

In 2004, the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was
conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There is one potential
source of contamination identified for this system with a moderate susceptibility level. The assessment results are available on the
FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can be obtained from Town of
Paxton (850) 834-2176.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Judy Williams Billing Clerk at (850)
834-2716. We encourage our valued.customers to be informed about thejr water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of
our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on second Tuesday monthly at 7:00 PM at Paxton Town Hall meeting room.

Town of Paxton routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations.
Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31,
2007. Data obtained before January 1, 2007 and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with
the laws, rules and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the
following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to
the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected
risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water sys-,
tem must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evi-
dence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Maximum residual level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addi-
tion of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a
one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes
(THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compli-
ance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stotmwater runoff, indus-
trial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential
uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes
and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring -or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in
bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonable be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does hot necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and
potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-
4791..

In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, it may be necessary to make improvements in your water
system. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be necessary in order to
address these improvements.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people
with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from Infections.
These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPAICDC guidelines on appropriate
means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Town of Paxton would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and pro-
tect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the
information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed. ltc: June 5

DONNA BURGESS, left shows Tiffany McCaskill of the South Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council, how to prepare her palette during a painting workshop for the media last
week outside at The Markets of Sandestin.


By LEAH STRATMANN
Perhaps one of the rea-
sons Donna Burgess was
named Walton County 2008
Artist of the Year is because
she is passionate about
art and equally passionate
about teaching. In an effort
to demonstrate art is for
everyone, Burgess recently
invited the media to a mini-
class, promising each of us
would leave with a work of
art.
True to her word, each of
the four representatives of
the media who attended the
class in front of the Donna
Burgess studio in The Mar-
ket Shops at Sandestin'left
with a matted piece of art
we had created. Plus we
were able to do this outside,
since the weather was more
than cooperative.
"I feel a responsibility be-


ANYONE CAN BE an artist, asserts Donna Burgess, Walton County Artist of the Year. Last week, Burgess conducted a
workshop for the media and each participant recreated a beach scene.


cause you can see on the
faces of students that this is
something they have always
wanted to do," Burgess said
of her monthly three-day
workshops. "There is no di-
vine filter separating the
artist from the non-artist."
For each participant,
Burgess squeezed water-
color paint onto paper plate
palettes and provided each
would-be artist with three
brushes. One was fairly wide
and flat, another elongated
and round, and the third
featured small fine bristles
for detail work. In addition,
she tore portrait-sized pieces
of watercolor paper for each
of us, noting that watercolor
paper should never be cut
or the paper rolls up. The
hand-torn paper laid flat on
the table.
Burgess showed us a gener-
ic beach scene drawing and
told us we were aiming for
our own variation on this
theme, using hues of blue,
gold, and glimmering green.
"Once you have the tools
and have learned how to use
the round brush, the flat
brush and the tiny brush,
you are good to go," Bur-
gess said. The task of each
was to create a seascape
with sea oats, sand, the blue
sky and a sense of depth. It
looked impossible from the
perspective of people who
may have never picked up
a brush with the intent to
paint a scene.
Before beginning to paint,
each of us was asked to draw
a line across our watercolor
paper in pencil and create
some dune-like humps. Af-
ter this, we were instructed
to wet our largest brush and
mash it down on blue paint
on our palette, thoroughly
spreading the paint out to
a sky blue color and then
to simply draw the brush
across the paper to what-
ever depth we desired. She
told us if we thought the sky
was too dark we could liter-
ally water it down, or if we
simply didn't like it, wipe

Choctawhatchee




Estuary Festival held




on Rocky Bayou


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I am thrilled with to-
day's turnout," said Okaloo-
sa-Walton College (OWC)
Chair of Environmental Sci-
ences, Dr. Allison Beaure-
gard. "We are really excited
to bring the public together
with these experts. This is
the first of many festivals."

The first annual Choc-
tawhatchee Estuary Fes-
tival was held on Sunday,
June 1, at Fred Gannon
Rocky Bayou State Park
in Niceville. The free event
was attended by hundreds
of children and adults alike.
The festival was part of a
two-day emphasis on the
Choctawhatcheee Bay which
also included a Mattie Kelly
Environmental Symposium
held the following day at
Sandestin.
Both events were orga-
nized by the OWC Mattie M.
Kelly Cultural and Environ-
mental Institute. The insti-
tute, which was established


in 1997, is a partnership of
OWC, the OWC Foundation,
Inc., the Choctawhatchee
Basin Alliance (CBA) and
is dedicated to the cultural,
environmental, historical
and instructional goals set
forth for the institute by the
late Mrs. Kelly of Destin.
Among the 25 exhibi-
tions, visitors could learn
about the Okaloosa Darter,
local snake species, red tide-
and the Gulf Sturgeon. The
Okaloosa Darter, which is
a small fish that lives on
creek bottoms, can be found
no where else in the world
outside the Okaloosa-Wal-
ton area.
Other events included
kayak tours, seining for bait
fish, fiddler crab races, Na-
tive American flutist Jonny
Lipford and guided trail
tours.
"The CBA is proud to be
a part of a festival that pro-
motes education and aware-
ness of our water resources
and estuary," said CBA
Director Julie Terrell. "We


have had great cooperation
between all the different en-
tities involved."

mental Institution see www.

almost all of it off with pa-
per towel and start again.
Painting with watercolor al-
lows the artist to make.mis-.
takes.
"In my workshops, I have
three days to pull students
through, otherwise they
may never try it again. Peo-
ple coming to a workshop
are taking a personal risk,"
*Burgess noted.
After completing the sky,
we addressed our pencil-
drawn humps and with the
use of watered-down gold,
began to create sea oats
with the rounded brush,
drawing them irregularly as
does nature. Then using the
tiny brush, we created the
off-shoots from the plants.
Next we put some dark blue
paint on the tiny brush and
using the rounded brush
as a hammer, tapped small
dots onto the landscape in
front of the oats, looking for
all the world like the beach
really looks. Finally, Bur-
. gess showed us how to make
a flying seagull.
"I make it look easy," she
said as she created flying
gull after flying gull, "but
then you try it," she laughed.
Indeed it looked easy and
it was not, but with a little
practice 'on some extra pa-
per, each of us was finally
able to make our hands cre-
ate the image we sought.
It should be noted that
the watercolor paper must
be dried in between the ap-
plication of each color and
this is accomplished with
a simple hair dryer. After
our masterpieces were com-
plete, we each signed our
work and Burgess and her
staff matted our drawings.
"I don't want my students
to leave in awe of me," Bur-
gess said, "I want them to
leave in awe of themselves."

workshops, which are usual-
ly held the first full weekend

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2008


Ask Auntie Em

Dear Auntie Em,
With the cost of gas and food rising may family and I are starting to, spend more
time at home. The last month or so I have been watching my energy bill rise with the
temperatures outside. Our home is a rental and we can't do any major construction
to help make the house more energy efficient. How can I save money this summer
when I know it's just going to get hotter?

Saving in south Walton
(Name withheld by request)

Dear Saving,
There is still a lot you can do to stabilize your electricity bill this summer and
maybe even lower it. If your landlord is agreeable, ask when was the last time the
air-conditioning unit for your house was serviced. Just like cars, they need regular
maintenance to work properly. Keep the air-conditioning filters clean or changed
out, too.
Lower the thermostat on your hot water heater. You can easily deal with short,
cooler showers during the summer months. Do your laundry at night and, if pos-
sible, use a clothesline during summer months instead of the dryer.
Use the microwave, instead of the oven. You'll use less power and won't heat up
the kitchen. For more family time and less heat, get the family outside late in the
afternoon and barbecue.
Heavy drapes or insulated blinds can help keep cool air in and hot air out. Teach
the kids to shut doors and minimize running in and out of the house too often. Un-
plug electronics you are not using. They still draw a charge, even'when off. Turn out
lights in any room not in use.
These are all easy ways you can make a difference in your power bill and enjoy
more relaxing time with your family. Happy summer savings and God bless.

Auntie Em

Rainecd-out Relay

Relay For Life of De-
Funiak Springs, a Harbeson
Field-event thoroughly
rained out on April 5, has
nevertheless rallied to sur-
pass its original goal as the
principal local funding ef-
fort of the American Cancer
Society. Relay teams accom-
plished the rally by follow-
ing through on associated
ongoing fundraising activi-
ties in the weeks after the
drenched non-event.
Many benefit efforts were
stymied by the storm, but
such indoor activities as the
survivors' and caregivers'
luncheon were successfully
held at the adjacent commu-
nity center. A small closing
ceremony took place April 22
at the Lakeyard amphithe-
ater. It included presenta-
tion of individual and team
awards, the luminaria cer-
emony, and closing prayers.
Track markers were also set
up around the site. Relay
Chair Lynn Touchton was
able to announce that the
goal of $65,000 had already
been passed.
Seven of 26 teams won
awards in nine categories.

The luminaria were care-

names of honored survivors

Nancy Snyder closed with a
prayer for survivors, fami-
lies and friends of those lost,
and strength for all to con-
tinue the fight.
As of the end of May,
Touchton has announced
2008 Relay gross receipts of
over $78,000, with expenses
of less than seven percent.
The yield is over $73,000
for the fight against cancer.
Touchton credits this success
to "two awesome factors: the
dedication of our teams and
the continuing generosity of
our community."

When I call to remembrance the genuine faith . .
which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your
mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.
2 Timothy 1:5

Osmosis is a gradual process whereby a liquid moves
through a membrane resulting in an equal concentra-
tion of fluid on both sides.
We sometimes say that, "She learned German hy os-
mosis while living there." Lots of things can be acquired
by osmosis-including knowledge and belief.

While we don't know exactly what went on in Timo-
thy's household when he was growing up, it looks like
he might have acquired his faith in an osmotic fashion:
soaking it up from his mother and grandmother who
were both believers in Jesus.

Timothy's mother (and perhaps his grandmother)
was a Jewess, so she likely had an Old Testament un-
derstanding of the Messiah (Acts 16:1) which Timothy
probably soaked up as well.

Regardless of how they came to believe in Jesus, in
time Timothy came along with them. We often hear
people say, "I can't remember a time when I didn't be-
lieve even though I confessed my faith publicly when I
was 12."

Children can soak up a lot from their parents: opin-
ions, accents, tastes in food. They can soak up knowl-
edge of Jesus, too, if it's made available.

Timothy was raised in such a way that he could suck
in godliness with his mother's milk.

The day is off to a good start
A smile on your face and a song in your heart

Let the Peace of Jesus on me shower down
Draw me a car in your Grace and Love, let me drown

Hold me close and your presence let me feel
Talk to me in a way that I know it is real

Things of this world came at every angle
The Devil will work.and try to on your Faith strangle

The whole day through the Devil be will be lurking
Keep Jesus in your Heart as the Spirit is working

Most days as a Christian there will be a tough spot
The Devil will do all to turn the pleasant into hot

Keep your eyes on Jesus and do His thing
Your reward is in Heaven and with the Angles you will sir

Be Thankful that God sees the big picture
Accept Jesus as your Savior for "All Things" the cure.

Thank God for His help at the end of your day
He was there when you let Him show you the way

At the end of the day know you've run a good race
Keep your eyes on Jesus and let him set the pace

South Walton student
Odie Delaney has inked a


time to help sink the bait
pretty fast, which can go a
long way towards making
a sometimes sluggish sum-
mer bass excited enough
to strike. If the bites slow
down, try downsizing your
bullet weight and do some
"finesse flipping" from close
range. By flipping smaller
weights, you minimize the
amount of splash upon your
bait's entry and are less
likely to spook ,the' fish. By
pitching in front of your boat
and staying quiet, you can
target bass that are hiding
in grass that other anglers
couldn't catch or don't real-
ize they are there.
When targeting summer
bass with these presenta-
tions, make sure to keep
an eye on your line. When
you pitch a big worm and
a sinker into heavy cover,
you have to watch the line,
because when it stops, you
want to immediately lift up
on it and see if there's ten-
sion or weight. I almost al-
ways use Berkley Trilene
100% Fluorocarbon for most
of my summer presentations
(except topwater lures) be-
cause of its manageability,
strength and it has little or
no stretch so you can strong-
arm that big bass out of its
shady hangout more easily.

By Boyd Duckett
Some people think that
the summertime is not the
best time to catch bass -
much less big bass. The hot-
ter and higher the sun gets,
the better sitting in front of
the air conditioner begins to
sound. It's during this time
of year that too many an-
glers opt for sipping iced tea
instead of fishing.
I fish for a living, so re-
treating to the climate-con-
trolled house when it gets
hot simply is not an option. I
have to be able to catch bass
in the wind, rain, sleet, snow
and the heat. In fact, I really
like to catch big fish during
the .summer. When it's hot
and sunny, bass like a lot
of anglers like to get in un-
der the edge of a shade line
and will feed looking out.
The fish will suspend under
cover, so what I like to do is
get up close and pitch right
down the edges, letting the
bait free fall.
In the heat, I will target
both structure and vegeta-
tion. In these environments,
I like to pitch a Berkley
4-inch Power Flippin' Tube
or a Berkley Gripper Foot-
ball Head Jig. In heavy wood,
I might go with a 10-inch
Berkley Power Worm with
a big half-ounce sinker. The
big weight is critical at this

12 saves this season while
posting a 2-1 record with a
,2.02 ERA. Troy head coach

The Florida Gators soft-
ball team was sunk by a
ninth inning triple as Texas
.A&M eliminated the Gators
1-0. Florida, who finished
the season 70-5, defeated
Texas A&M 6-1 earlier in

ninth victory of the season.
He took the track by storm
and lead all but 69 laps of
the race.
Another surprise of the day
was rookie Joey Logano plac-
ing sixth in his NASCAR
national-level debut. He
stayed in a tight race with
veterans like Carl Edwards,
Greg Biffle and Hamlin.


Edwards, who started the
pole, came in second. Da-
vid Stremme took the third
place spot and David Rueti-
mann came in fourth. i
Logano was unable to race
in the NASCAR circuit until
he turned 18 last week, and
JGR put him on the track
just as soon he finished cel-
ebrating his birthday.


Teaching children a life-
long hobby, instilling appre-
ciation for Florida's marine
environment, and providing
a fun, family outing are the
objectives for the Panama
City kids' fishing clinic.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), the Florida
Foundation for Responsible
Angling, Half Hitch Tackle
and the Sport Fish Restora-
tion Programii will present a
free kids' fishing clinic for
children between the ages of
4 and 16 on Saturday, June
7. Registration starts at 9
a.m. and ends at noon. The
clinic will be held at a new
location this year, the Pan-
ama City Marina in down-
town Panama City.
This free event enables
young people to learn the
basics of environmental
stewardship, fishing ethics,
angling gKills and safety. In "
addition, environmental dis-
plays provide participants a
unique chance to experience


Florida's marine life first-
hand.
Kids' fishing clinics pro-
mote several goals, but the
main objective is to create
responsible marine resource
stewards by teaching chil-
dren about the vulnerabil-
ity of Florida's marine eco-
systems. In addition, the
clinics teach fundamental
saltwater fishing skills and
provide participants with a
positive fishing experience.
Fishing equipment and
bait will be supplied for chil-
dren to use during the clin-
ic, but those who own fish-
ing tackle are encouraged to
bring it. A limited number of
rods and reels will be given
away to participants upon
completion of the clinic.
If conditions allow, par-
ticipants will have the op-
portunity to practice their
new skills and fish from the
dock. This event is a photo
catch-and-release activity,
and all participants must be
accompanied by an adult.

FES hosts spelling bees


Freeport Elementary
School hosted fourth and
fifth grade spelling bees dur-
ing the month of May. These
were the first school bees to
be held in many years. By
bringing back this classic
program, it allowed students
the opportunity to individu-
ally shine while improving


their spelling knowledge,
increasing their vocabular-
ies, and developing correct
English usage that will help
them all their lives.
The school bees were
based on the National
Scripps Spelling Bee pro-
gram but were modified for
the local level. The Scripps


National Spelling Bee pro-
gram has been in place for
83 years and is supported
by the United States and
other countries around the
world. The school bees were
sponsored by the Pilot and
Kiwanis Clubs of DeFuniak
Springs. They provided a
school sign for the event,


trophies for the winners,
and gifts for the pronounc-
ers and judge.
Their support of the pro-
gram was invaluable and
much appreciated by the
school and students. By
partnering with the school,
their sponsorship helped
make the event a huge suc-


cess. Rhonda Skipper, Mar-
tha Ingle, and Vivian Clark
were able to attend and
watch the students as they
spelled their way to becom-
ing champions.
There were 20 fourth
graders and 25 fifth grad-
ers that participated. The
participants took home tro-


phies and certificates for
their excellent performanc-
es. Freeport Elementary
hopes this is just the begin-
ning of many school bees to
come, with each becoming
bigger and better than the
last. FES spells "S U C C E
S S" with capital letters.

Top Ten Local Sports Events of 2007-08, Part I


By PATRICK CASEY
The end of another school
year brings to a close yet an-
other chapter in local athlet-
ic history. For some, the look
ahead to next year brings
hope for improvement, for
others, the realization that
a repeat of-success may be a
near impossible task.
After looking back on the
school year that was, ten
items stand out from what
was a solid athletic year
for all five of our area high
schools that the Herald-
Breeze covers on a daily ba-
sis.
This week, the Herald-
Breeze looks at five things
readers might have missed,
or just might enjoy remem-
bering before we move on
to the next school year in
athletics. Next week, we
will follow with the final five
memorable sports moments
from 2007-08 leading up to
No. 1.
10. Katherine Register
won the Class A pole vault
title again. South Walton
senior Katherine Register
earned her second consecu-
tive state championship in
the pole vault 'event with
a vault of 11-feet, 6 inches
after winning the Class A
title in 2007 with a vault of
10-feet, nine inches. Regis-
ter also placed as a sopho-
more, finishing in second
place with a vault of 10-feet.
Register improved upon her
performance each year at the
state final and her vault of
11-feet, 6 inches would have
won the 2A and 3A title this
year as well, and would have
been tied for second place in
Class 4A. Meagan Martin
of Lake Mary High School
posted a 12-foot vault to be
the only high school girls
participant to top Register's
vault in Florida.
9. Freeport baseball! The
Freeport Bulldogs baseball
team had not been to the
playoffs since the 1997 sea-
son. That changed in 2008
as Gene Martin helped the
Bulldogs earn a playoff
berth with a runner-up fin-
ish in District 1, Class 2A.
Freeport went 17-11 while
sweeping. Ponce de Leon
(PDL), South Walton- and
Paxton with a split of a dou-
ble-header at Walton. The
Bulldogs played Jay three
times, losing two in extra
innings. Though Freeport
lost their first round playoff
game to Altha 9-1, the Bull-
dogs took a big step forward
and should be in the hunt
in a much younger district
next season. Freeport had
solid pitching and hitting for
most of the season, though
not always at the same time
in the games they played.
The future looks bright,


though, for a team'that may
not reach its peak until a
year or two from now.
8. Ponce de Leon High
School had a lot of success
signing athletes to college
scholarships this past school
year in girls high school bas-
ketball. Mary Howes signed
to play at Eckerd College in
St. Petersburg this fall with
Maggie Wright inking a deal
at Troy University. Jennifer
Grant followed suit with an


offer to play at Albany State.
The PDL girls program
came up shy of the Final
Four this season, but have
made the trip several times
in the past few years. Coach
Tim Alford may have a little
more trouble getting back
in the next few seasons, but
don't expect the cupboard
to be bare. The Pirates are
a resilient bunch and have
enough talent to still make
waves over the next few sea-


FREEPORT'S BASEBALL TEAM posted a 17- 11 record
and earned a playoff berth in 2008.


WALTON'S JASMINE MOORE helped the Braves to
three, one-point victories over South Walton in 2007- 08.


sons, especially with Class
2A featuring much younger
talent throughout our area
in 2008-09.
7. Walton girls basket-
ball defeated South Walton
by one point three differ-
ent times. While this occur-
rence might not truly be
earth-shaking, it is a rarity
for one team to defeat an-
other by a single point three
times in the same season.
Walton rallied from a large
deficit in mid-December to
grab a 72-71 district win at
home, then edged the Sea-
hawks 49-48 in a defensive
battle on the road. To com-
plete the hat trick, Walton
edged South Walton 50-49
at Northview in the District
1, Class 3A girls basketball
tournament. That win gave
the Braves a playoff berth
and sent their county ri-
val home for the year. The
Braves truly had the. Sea-
hawks number during the
2007-08 season, even if the
margin was just one point
each time.
6. School Board increases
athletic funding- The Wal-
ton County School Board
helped each county high
school and middle school by
agreeing to increase the ath-
letic budgets for each school.
High schools will receive an
extra $10,000, while middle
schools will receive $5,000.
The school board also chose
to pay for all officials expens-
es that are required to ref-
eree athletic contests and to
pay all travel, not just what
was allocated, but all travel
for athletic programs to help
reduce the amount of fund-
raisers going on in the dis-


trict that was being used to
offset costs. The millage ref-
erendum that was renewed
in July 2007 will help fund
the increase and take a lot
of weight off of schools and
parents. The measure was


a big victory for athletics in
Walton County and comes
while several nearby school
districts are struggling to
keep their programs afloat.
Next Week: The Top
Five.


SOUTH WALTON'S KATHERINE REGISTER won the
Class A pole vault title in 2007 and 2008.


PDL CELEBRATED ANOTHER strong year in girls basketball with three players ink-
ing deals to play in college.


Corraling cruisers with a floating worm


BY JAY YELAS
If you spend time at the
lake, either at the marina
or around the boat slips,
undoubtedly you've noticed
bass cruising around. You've
probably been on the water
since before sunrise, made
a long run to an end of the
lake and all the while there
are bass within a short walk
of a hot cup of coffee and an
indoor restroom. It can be
frustrating.
But to experience true
frustration, try your hand at
catching one of these cruis-
ers. The frustration seems
to ratchet up even higher
as the cruising bass get big-
ger. Sure, they're swimming
around and you can see
them, but it's hard to make
them bite. There's no short-
age of ways to try to target
these cruisers, but one of
the most effective ways I've
found is to use a floating
worm. A floating worm can
help you catch fish whenev-
er they are refusing to eat,


but only if you know how to
use it.
What could be so hard
about using a floating worm?
A lot of people just cast .it
out, let it fall and twitch
the bait a little. But there's
more to it than that. First,
I like to use floating worms
in shallow water (5 feet or
less) or when the bass are
high in the, water column
around structure like boat
slips. I use them a lot during
spring and fall because the
differences in water tem-
perature between day and
night draw more bass into
shallow water. As the sun
gets higher on these spring
and fall days, the shallow
water warms faster than
the deeper water. So, the
bass will migrate into these
areas mid- to late morning
(that's why you see them
cruising the boat slips when
you come back to the mari-
na for a sandwich), so focus
on areas around the docks,
heavy vegetation and willow


trees.
I don't consider the float-
ing worms a go-to bait. I
usually reserve these for re-
ally tough days. When the
bass are shallow, I'd much
rather be flipping or throw-
ing a spinnerbait. But when
I am seeing them cruising
and they won't eat, the float-
ing worm is my last resort.
When the bass seem to have
lockjaw, it can be because
the conditions are tougher
than normal. But if the con-
ditions turn windy, I prefer
a spinnerbait.
When using a floating
worm, the most important
thing to do is establish a ca-
dence, a walk-the-dog-type
rhythm like those used on
big top-water baits. As the
bait passes cover, pause
your retrieve and hang on:
stopping the bait some-
times drives bass crazy and
strikes can range from dead
weight to a slight tug or vio-
lent flash and boil.
My floating worm rig


stays pretty much the
same wherever I go: I use a
Berkley Power Bait 6-inch
Bubblegum Pink Float-
ing Steelhead Worm. I use
14- or 20-pound Fireline
mainline (depending on the
amount of cover in the area)
and use 8-pound Trilene XL
as a leader, connected with
a Double Uni Knot, and
spooled on, a Size 3 spinning
reel and a 6-foot finesse-
action spinning rod. I never
weight the floating worm
(so it will float) and rig the
bait with a 4/0 offset worm
hook.
Sometimes the fishing
gets so tough that you run
out of ideas. When that hap-
pens, try a floating worm in
shallow water around cover
and see if you can entice a
big cruiser to come crash into
your bait. Once you figure
out how to make the floating
worm work for you, you'll be
hauling in fish while every-
one else struggles.

gler of the Year and former

SWFD discusses land


options, emergency


response stats


By CHRIS MANSON
The Sou4h Walton Fire
District (SWFD) once again
tackled a 10-acre parcel the
district owns on CR-393.
Representatives from Bosso,
Dentzau, and Imhof (BDI),
Inc., a Pensacola environ-
mental firm, addressed the
commissioners during Mon-
day's monthly board meet-
ing.
BDI conducted a prelimi-
nary wetland assessment of
the property. A portion of
the property was identified
as isolated wetlands, which
does not fall under the aus-
pices of regulating agencies
like the Department of En-
vironmental Protection and
the Army Corps of Engi-
neers. However, much of the
remaining land will require


permitting, a process the
BDI representatives said
could take anywhere from
12 to 18 months.
Chief Rick Talbert said it
was not the SWFD's intent
to develop the entire site,
but rather to construct a
training and storage facility
rough one-third of the size
of the SWFD headquarters
building. Talbert said he
envisioned a three-story,
multi-use structure that
would put firefighters in
more "high fidelity" training
situations.
BDI suggested that the
SWFD come up with a broad
phasing plan for the CR-393
parcel and develop an engi-
neering plan. The environ-
mental experts argued that
a government entity such
as the SWFD would be less


likely to run into permitting
hurdles than, say, an office
complex.
"We will eventually need a
training facility," said board
chairman Maurice Gilbert.
"This is the most appropri-
ate place to have it."
BDI would handle the ap-
plication process, while the
SWFD would need to em-
ploy a design firm and engi-
neers. BDI estimated that it
would cost roughly $18,000
to shepherd the process
through.
After some discussion,
Talbert agreed to engage an
engineering firm to walk the
property. Assistant Chief
Marc Anderson said he
would get a conceptual plan
together and bring it to the'

CDLAB meeting


discusses


"monster dock"


By LEAH STRATMANN
After the usual prelimi-
nary administrative matter
of approving the minutes
was completed, the Coastal
Dune Lake Advisory Board
(CDLAB) got down to busi-
ness.
Jeanie Wilson reported
the salinity level in East-
ern Lake is down signifi-
cantly from what it was in
2005. Residents there are
very concerned about the
monster dock that is being.
built near CR30A. "Not only
it is unsightly, it could be a
nuisance with people com-
ing out of the Old Florida
Fish House and might be
the cause of accidents," she
said.
The building of that par-
ticular dock is what has
prompted the CDLAB to
ask for help from the coun-
ty's planning department
to work on the creation of
an ordinance detailing the
fragility of the lakes and
precautions necessary be-
fore building anything near
them.
County environmen-
tal planner Billy McKee
said, "When I met with Pat
[Blackshear, county plan-
ning director] about the dock
being built on Eastern Lake,
Pat said we need to draft an
enforceable ordinance so the
language is clear as to what
can and cannot be built on
the coastal dune lakes." Mc-
Kee noted that sometimes
the legislature attempts
to limit local governments
from enacting any restric-
tions more stringent that
those mandated by the Flor-
ida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (FDEP)
but so far those attempts
have not passed. It was de-
cided that CDLAB board
members would work with
the environmental planners
to draft the ordinance.


Chandra Hartman also
unveiled her 13-minute vid-
eo she wrote in conjunction
with the Tourist Develop-
ment Council as part of her
coursework for a degree in
sustainable communities.
The video shows the coast-
al dune lakes, explains the
rarity, of lakes with both salt
and fresh water, and pro-
vides information on protec-
tion them as a recreation
source as well as an environ-
mental necessity. The video
is available for purchase
at the TDC and can also
be viewed at the TDC web-
site. Hartman said Walton
County had the sixth most
diverse environment in the
United Sates.
McKee provided -an up-
date on the status of Oyster
Lake saying the' FDEP has
issue a warning letter to the
property owners, ordering
the removal of the armor-
ing of the outfall. The letter
gives the owner, William
Hemby, 10 days to respond,
and McKee said the owner
did respond through his at-
torney asking for additional
time.
McKee said the illegal ar-
moring of the Hemby prop-
erty causes problems for an
adjoining property, which
resulted in armoring on that
property as well. "The second
property owner has agreed
to remove their armoring at
the same time the Hemby
armoring is removed," Mc-
Kee said, although he prom-
ised to check on the status of
the situation. "Everything
could be delayed until the
end of turtle nesting season,
which doesn't end until Nov.
1."
General discussion about
this issue followed, with
many noting the issue of the
Hemby property has been

Beach safety education program underway


Beaches of South Wal-
ton's beach safety education
program is in high gear. The
Walton County Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC),
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) and Walton County
Sheriffs Department are
actively working to educate
visitors and residents on the
flag warning system and
dangers associated with rip
currents.
"Memorial Day weekend
was challenging," said Gary
Wise, beach safety director
with the SWFD. "We per-
formed more rescues over
the 2008 Memorial Day
weekend, than we did during
the entire 2007 season."
The SWFD performed
51 rescues during Memo-
rial Day weekend as com-
pared to 29 rescues in 2007.
The need for this many
rescues was attributed to
the hazardous red-flag and
double-red-flag conditions
that existed throughout the
holiday weekend, one of the
busiest times of year for the
destination. In addition to


the rescues, lifeguards took
more than 2,200 preventa-
tive actions to keep beach-
goers out of harmful situ-
ations. More importantly,
lifeguards worked to edu-
cate beachgoers about the
flag conditions, reaching
more than 5,457 people in
direct interactions.
"The lifeguards are to
be commended for the in-
credible job they are doing
to keep our visitors and
residents safe," said Sonny
Mares, executive director of
Walton County TDC. "Dan-
gerous swimming condi-
tions were further amplified
by the number of visitors on
our beaches for Memorial
Day and reinforced the need
for the extensive beach safe-
ty education program that
we have in place."
The comprehensive beach
safety education program
was implemented after Me-
morial Day weekend in 2003,
when similar beach condi-
tions resulted in the loss of
nine lives. The beach safety
program features Seemore


the Safety Crab and is com-
municated to beachgoers
through materials distribut-
ed to guests by lodging part-
ners, print and broadcast
advertisements, community
relations, public relations,
radio spots and lifeguards.
More than 26 flags commu-
nicate the flag warning sys-
tem over 26 miles of beaches
informing beachgoers of surf


conditions.
The beach safety edu-
cation program is funded
through the TDC. This year
two regional beach access
were added, bringing the to-
tal number of lifeguard tow-
ers to eight. Lifeguards are
now located at Inlet Beach,
Santa Clara, Van Ness
Butler Jr., Blue Mountain,
Gulfview Heights, Ed Wal-


line, Dune Allen and Mira-
mar Beach.
"Our mission is education,
prevention and lastly emer-,
gency response," said Wise.
"Open water swimming is
much less predictable than
in a pool. Rip currents are
difficult to see, unless* you
are trained. Always ask a
lifeguard, and if you don't
know, don't go!"

parking area to the north of the access, and authorization
to advertise the two projects in one bid request, in the inter-
est of more efficient coordination and cost savings.
A motion by Pridgen, to reject the two bids and
authorize requests for proposals on the two projects
combined, was approved unanimously.

Proposal and motion by Meadows to seek bids from
contractors for safety striping on crossings, driveways and
intersections of the Timpoochee Trail bike path, in order
to see what the cost and time frame would be for the work,
with funds available in the recreational plat fee account.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Presentation by Camille Tharpe of Government
Services Group, regarding the possibility of municipal
services benefits unit assessments in the Daughette subdi-
vision to fund canal maintenance.
Motion by Comander to prepare an initial assessment
resolution for the June 10 BCC meeting, setting a $63 max-
imum per-year rate for each of the 117 parcels for purposes
of funding canal maintenance costs, with mail notices to
property owners and public hearings for input to follow.
The motion was approved unanimously.

Request by Jones to use $25,000 budgeted for park
and playground equipment at the New Harmony Com-
munity Center to put a new roof on the community center
building.
A motion for approval by Comander carried unan-
imously.

Request by Pat Blackshear, county planning and de-
velopment services director, for authorization to place traf-
fic fees collected through the Proportional Fair Share pro-
gram in an interest-bearing account.
A motion for approval by Pridgen carried unani-
mously.

Request by Moore Bass Consulting for approval of
Whispering Lakes PUD, 296-residential-unit development
including townhomes, duplexes, fourplexes, eightplexes, se-
nior living apartments, and an assisted living facility, to be
constructed on a 29.65-acre site on the east side and end of
Veterans Road in Santa Rosa Beach.
Motion by Meadows for conditional approval with
the understanding that the developers would work with
county staff to provide a 10-foot-wide multi-use path along
the length of the property.
The motion was approved unanimously.


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 5,2008


SHOOTING THE BREEZE


Much to my surprise,
since moving to outskirts
of civilization as we know it
with a convenience store on
every other corner and the
attendant screech of sirens
and clash of horns, I've been
enjoying driving more. I've
never much enjoyed driving
and often said if I were ever
to win the lottery, the first
thing, I'd do is hire a'driver
to squire me about.
However, now that I must
travel a bit to get anywhere,
I'm finding driving can be
pleasant. First of all the
roads I travel most, Hwy.
81, SR-20 and U.S. 331 are
uniformly well maintained
with few rough patches.
Furthermore, in the case
of Hwy 81, the roads have
hills and curves, which
gives drivers a chance to re-
ally drive instead of simply
moving from one light to the
next in a row of bumper-to-
bumper vehicles.
All the roads I travel have
posted speed limits of 45 to
60 miles per hour, which in
turn provides for the mini-
mum amount of fuel used
for each mile of travel. I'm
averaging 32 miles per gal-


lon, which
in the face
of high gas
prices, is
much better
than the 25
or 26 mpg I
get in "town"
traffic.
My other
main artery
. is Rock Hill
Road, which
eventually !
delivers me
to the high-
way into De-
Funiak Springs. This road
has many sharp curves and
although the posted speed
limit is 55 miles per hour,
I find I can navigate more
easily at 50 miles per hour,
allowing me to take the time
to look around as I drive.
I saw a deer crossing the
road far ahead of me the
other day and the elegance
of the animal brightened my
day. Of course, traveling be-
low the speed limit is annoy-
ing to those who race through
life at every opportunity and
there are few places on Rock
Hill Road where passing is
allowed, but then the road


is not heav-
ily traveled
so I don't
think I'm a
hazard.

Along with
living na-
ture, I've
seen road
kill being
feasted on
by crows,
which does
not brighten
my day, but
is part of the
circle of life. These are not
sights found much in town.
I've taken to calling my
new community "Hooter-
ville," which is no way is
meant as derogatory, but
which refers to the sounds
one hears often. Out here in
the 'ville, we hear no sirens,
see only a few cars and can
sit on the porch of an eve-
ning listening to nature. My
dog particularly likes view-
ing the slowness of life from
the fabulous front porch.
As much as I am loath to
acquire any more posses-
sions, I'm afraid I'm going
to have to buy some chairs


with Leah Stratmann


to complement the porch.
Maybe wanting to sit on the
porch of an evening is part
of the aging process, but
then again I've never had
such a porch to sit upon, so
who knows?
The whole porch thing
puts me in mind of my pa-
ternal grandparents' house.
It sat on a busy intersection
in Vincennes, IN. across
from a public school and
featured a wide concrete
covered porch running the
width of the house. As kids,
my sister and I both loved to
hose it down, watching the
water bring on rivulets of
street dust and then direct-
ing the dirty pools of water
out onto the lawn. When
it was clean, we would sit
down in the chairs, survey
our handiwork, and watch
the traffic, both foot traffic
and cars, go by.
My porch is deep, made
of wood and will not require
washing down, but it does
provide a nice respite from
air-conditioned air, a shel-
tered perch to watch to rain,
and a site for meditation on
all life has to offer.

SWMCD' Boa. ard meeting


By LEAH STIATMANN
The regular board meet-
ing of the South Walton
Mosquito Control District
(SWMCD) started with the
approval of the minutes and
proceeded to the financial
report.
SWMCD director Ste-
phen Sickerman reported
the district has already
received 88 percent of the
funds they anticipate and
have spent 44 percent of it.
To date, the state has pro-
vided only 25 percent of the
pledged $18,500 in funding.
Each year the state of Flori-
, da provides $36,000 to each
' county for mosquito control,
and in Walton County half
of these dedicated funds go
to SWMCD and the remain-
der to county coffers serving
the north end.
The remainder of operat-
ing funds for SWMCD comes
from a homeowner tax rate
of 0.0744 per thousand dol-
lars of home evaluation.
"We work hard to keep the
millage rate to just what we
need," board member John
J. Magee noted.
He reported that if for any
reason the state failed to
provide the remainder of the
funding, the district would
use carry-over funds from
previous budgets to fulfill
obligations. Sickerman also
reported it is likely there
will be at least a 5-percent
increase in price for herbi-
cides and other chemicals
this year.


"If you find the
mosquito larvae, you
can put pellets in
the water to prevent
them from becom-
ing adults. We are

Crawford agreed saying,
"Can we budget everybody
for at least a $1 an hour

district about $30,000. We
don't have to use all the
money. Typically anybody
making under $20 an hour
should get the $1 per hour
raise and anybody making
more should get the 50-cent
raise. Making under $20 an
hour is hard to make it in
this economy."
The budget was further
refined by increasing the
line item for propane from
$1,000 to $2,000 and elimi-
nating a new ULV spray
system with a price tag of
$13,000.
Magee noted the budget
was severely cut last year
and this year the board has
a goal of reducing the budget
even more. He asked Sicker-
man to adjust the contin-
gency fund for the increased
wages. Currently the bud-
get calls for expenditures of
about $82,000 per month.
There was some discus-
sion about the retirement
policy as the current policy
calls for retirees to retain in-
surance and'other benefits.
"What happens if the state
dissolves special districts?
What about our obligation
to retirees?" asked Craw-
ford. "Self-insuring agencies
like this needs to be backed
up by some sort of annuity
policy and I'd like for our
attorney to look at this in
depth. I want the policies
and procedures completely
dissected to address wheth-
er or not policies have the
proper verbiage, to protect
retirees," he said.
The only other piece of
business remaining was de-
ciding on the type of new ice
machine to buy. It was not-
ed the current ice machine
is more than 10 years old.
A motion was made to buy a
new machine and move the
necessary funds from the
contingency monies to capi-
tal outlay.

There being no further
business, the meeting was
adjourned.

pleas-

Ar Clips


one of the


most important
aspects of a tourist
destination. But
what if everything
is a great
experience for
tourists except the
locals?
-------------------------
As a tourist destination,
the Florida Emerald Coast
plays host to hundreds of
thousands each year that
come to spend their
vacation and their dollars
along the beautiful waters
of the Florida Gulf Coast.
Each and every year,
tourists in droves come to
the beaches to get a piece of
paradise that we call year-
round residences.
The hotels, the condos,
the homes, the restaurants,
the shops and the tourists
traps are jammed with
visitors who are here to get
a sample of all our area has
to offer.
But what happens when
our tourists start acting
like a bad swarm of yellow
flies and we begin to treat
them like pests?
Recently, I was leaving a
local establishment on CR-
30A and overheard a lady
and her family that were,
leaving the same place. She
told her family that the
food was excellent, but the
service was worse than a
bad cup of coffee in the
morning. It just ruined the
whole day, she said.
This statement came
from a tourist with a strong
New York accent.
Not an hour later, I was
walking out of a local art
shop and heard another
lady tell her group of
friends or family that she


had heard this was the best
place to purchase art, and
the attitude went right
along with all the rumors
she had heard about the
area. She was referring to a
gossip column poll in
Georgia that labelled the
Emerald Coast as the
rudest tourist stop in
Florida, excluding Palm
Beach.
Are we to that point of
being "snobs" and "rude" to
the hands that actually
feed us? Have we become so
jaded with our
international rank as a
high society community,
that we forget who put us
there?
It is like a celebrity who
tells the paparrazi that
follow them night and day
"to get a life," or find a real
job. They bash them when
they don't want them
around and then beg for
them to pay attention to
them when they are in the
dumps or their popularity
has hit the skids.
The fact is, they, nor we,
can have it both ways and
survive in this day and
time of tightening wallet
straps and sewn-up
pockets.
Granted, tourists can'
sometimes be annoying
with their screaming
children, their brake pedal
riding and just a sense of
"we are on vacation and
expect service" attitude.
But no matter how
annoying they or their
family and friends might
be, they are paying
livelihood.
I am one of the first to
snap at a poking motorist, a
misbehaving kid, or a
sunburned, cranky tourist.
I have even let my quite
voice get rather loud on a
few occasions.


But the
truth is they
also put
money in our
county and
state pockets.
The tourists
that we often
dread seeing
hit U.S. 331,
U.S. 98 and


CR-30A, are the exact type
of visitor we need to be
rolling out the red carpet
for every week.
With crystal blue waters,
sandy white beaches, top-
notch restaurants and four-
star accommodations, we
have anything and
everything that a
destination tourist may
desire. They come from
across the planet to the
Emerald Coast to have fun
in the sun and relax.
We are not Palm Beach
that relies on the hundreds
of multi-millionaire jet-
setters and celebrities. We
do not have the same
international flair as South
Beach and Miami with its
billions of dollars being
generated from the
modeling, recording and
film industry and we are
far from the world of
Mickey.

We are a small, coastal
village that once thrived
because of the fishing and
shrimping industry. Our
area was just fortunate
enough to have the
qualities that a few
visionaries had of turning
the beautiful, undeveloped
landscapes into a tourist
destination.
So until the movie
industry pays the bills, the
record industry buys up
every available warehouse
for recording space, or a
group of 10,000
millionaires buy up all the
real estate, we will have to
all just get along.
Like it or not, we are

Villa Tasso is located in Section 31,
Township 2S, and Range 17W in
Walton County, Florida. The subdi-
vision is located in a low lying area
and currently floods during hard
rains due to runoff from adjacent
properties and a lack of stormwater
conveyance within the limits of the
subdivision. The proposed improve-
ments include paving numerous dirt
roads, constructing drainage swales,
and installing culverts to convey
stormwater runoff through the prop-
erty allowing discharge into natural
low lying areas. In addition to these
improvements the project includes


the construction of a large swale on
the west side of County Line Road to
stop runoff from discharging into the
subdivision.

in litigation for more than

generally felt the FDEP was

that last month the SWFD
performed 36 beach rescues
in contrast to just two a year
ago. "The totals continue to
climb," said Talbert. "The
beach rescue program was
invaluable over the holiday
weekend. There were no fa-
talities."
Talbert also said the
SWFD had completed hurri-
cane readiness training and
is monitoring the district's
fuel consumption as well as
developing energy-saving
measures. "An energy au-
dit is underway," he said,
noting that rising fuel costs
were not anticipated in the
current fiscal year's budget.
Vice-chairman Jack Ab-
bit asked if the SWFD had
fuel reserves in the event of
an emergency. "We have an
agreement with the county
for fuel delivery services,"


said Talbert. "I feel like
we're in good shape."
FiscalOfficer BrianFlana-
gan gave a mid-year budget
review and recommended
increasing the SWFD's re-
serves by $482,000. "We
had more cash at the end of
the year than we thought,"
he said. He also requested
that the board increase its
equipment expenditures by
$25,000. The board approved
both items unanimously.
The board agreed to Gil-
bert's proposal to display
a plaque in the conference
room commemorating the
late attorney Alan Ramey's
years of service to the SWFD.
Gilbert also informed the
board that Talbert had
been nominated for Florida
Fire Chief of the Year, to be
awarded July 25.

enforce the law. We need to
make more noise than the
owners of the property. No
one at DEP knows anyone is
concerned about this."
McKee said it would ul-
timately be the BCC who
makes the decision about
proceeding and suggested
the CDLAB get on the agen-
da for the next meeting to
ask them to prod the FDEP.
"Pressure on the .BCC has
to come from citizens show-
ing up in numbers and show-


ing how the homeowners'
property is being degraded,"
Underwood said.
It was decided CDLAB
will send a resolution to be
presented to Pat Blackshear
to urge the BCC to ask the
FDEP to resolve the issue
regarding the Hemby ar-
moring and encourage the
FDEP to take immediate ac-
tion if possible, and working
with Turtle Watch to find a
way to make it work without
waiting until November.

Florida Department of



Health receives Robert



Wood Johnson grant


The Florida Department
of Health's (DOH) Office of
Performance Improvement
announced that Florida
has received a $450,000,
grant from the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation to im-
prove the quality of pub-
lic health and prepare for
national public health ac-
creditation. The grant is
part of a national program
called Lead States in Pub-
lic Health Quality Improve-
ment: A Multi-State Learn-
ing Collaborative,' which is
managed by the National
Network of Public Health
Institutes and the Public
Health Leadership Society.

Florida is one of 16 states
chosen to participate in the
program. The grant will
support the implementation
of projects to address specific
health outcomes like reduc-
ing preventable risk factors
that, cause chronic diseases
or decreasing the burden
of tobacco-related illness-
es. Additionally, DOH will
use the funding to improve
how public health services
are delivered, such as the
collection and use of health
data or the integration of
customer service into'public
health programs.
"We are always searching
for, ways to promote, protect
and improve the health of all
Floridians," State Surgeon
General Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said. "Col-
laboration with other state
public health agencies sup-
ports the exchange of ideas
and resources to improve
health outcomes and meth,
ods of providing services for
Florida's residents and visi-


tors."
"Florida's Department of
Health has demonstrated a.
commitment to improving
the quality of their public
health services and pro-
grams. Their work will lead
the way as other local and
state public health agencies
across the nation prepare for
accreditation and strive to
create healthier communi-
ties," said James S. Marks,
M.D., M.P.H., senior vice
president and director of the
health group at the Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation.
As Florida and the oth-
er 15 states work on their
projects, the National Net-
work of Public Health In-
stitutes and the Public
Health Leadership Society
will provide guidance to the
program and share the les-
sons learned through this
project with health officials
nationwide. The project's
work will play a critical role
in helping the public health
community prepare for na-
tional accreditation -- an ef-
fort that will begin in 2011
and will help local and'state
health departments ensure
they are providing quality
public health services and
programs to improve the
health of their community.
Acknowledging the mo-
mentum surrounding the
national voluntary accredi-
tation program for public
health departments, Chief
Executive Officer for the
National Network of Public
Health Institutes, Joseph
Kimbrell said, "This project
is timed to coincide with the
launch of the national ac-
creditation standards and
will help health depart-


ments across the country
identify and implement the
tools and methods they need
to ensure the safety and
health of the communities
they serve."
Lead States in Public
Health Quality Improve-
ment builds off the mo-
mentum of two Multi-State
Learning Collaborative
Initiatives also funded by
the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation. States in the
first phase of the Multi-
State Learning Collabora-
tive project explored the use
of accreditation, as a quality
improvement process and
helped shape the recom-
mendations that established
the Public Health Accredi-
tation Board, the nonprofit
group that will administer
the voluntary accreditation
program for state and local
public health departments
beginning in 2011. The
second phase of the project
brought together 10 states
to explore best practices for
teaching and implementing
quality improvement prac-
tices at the state and local
level. Florida has been a
part of these efforts since
the second phase of the proj-
ect.

es unique



iexDerience


By CHRIS MANSON
Justin Gaffrey is not your
typical painter, and Gaffrey
Art in Blue Mountain Beach
is not your typical gallery.
The place was originally
built in 1992 for Gaffrey's
wife, Billie an art instruc-
tor at Seaside Neighborhood
School and a celebrated
painter in her own right to
create art with the couple's
two children. Gaffrey spent
years running the Caf6 Sub-
lime restaurant, and gradu-
ally began to help his wife
build furniture and paint
pictures.
"I always wanted to paint,
but I didn't know how," said
Gaffrey. "I think I was too
stressed out from the res-
taurant. As I was helping
her out, we created folk art
pieces." Billie asked him to
paint a set of furniture, and
others liked what they saw.
"I decided to try it on can-
vas, and I've been painting
ever since."
That was in 2001. Gaffrey
has since made his mark
with vivid acrylic render-
ings of flowers, still life, lo-
cal landscapes, and "things
to do with fish." He calls
himself an obsessive work-
er, cranking out 400-500
paintings a year. "I get up
at three in the morning and
start painting."
Visitors to Gaffrey Art
are treated to a close-up


look at the artist at work.
"The studio is in the back,"
said Gaffrey. "It's a working
gallery. People are encour-
aged to touch the paintings
and photograph them."
"The guy's a true renais-
sance man," said Tom Had-
don, Gaffrey's sales repre-
sentative. Gaffrey has been
profiled in Southern Living
and Coastal Living maga-
zines, and his work is rep-
resented in galleries across
the country. The average
price for a Gaffrey original
falls in the $1,200-$2,500
range, although larger-sized
works have fetched prices
well into five figures.
"It's not uncommon for
people to come in and buy
two or three paintings," said
Haddon.
Gaffrey recently returned
from a show in New York
City, and his art is also sold
at galleries in Birmingham
and New Orleans. Of the
latter, Haddon said, "They
can't keep them on the wall
over there."
The next step in a contin-
ually emerging career is tak-
ing the gallery on the road.
Gaffrey and Haddon plan to
haul a 32-foot custom trail-
er to cocktail parties, public
venues, and private estates
during the off-season. The
vehicle will be designed to
resemble a storefront with
wood floors and professional


lighting.
Haddon called Gaffrey an
intuitive painter, as opposed
to professionally trained.
"You can walk in and recog-
nize a Gaffrey from 75 feet
away," said Haddon.
Visitors to Gaffrey Art
are especially taken by Gaf-
frey's use of color. "That was
a learned thing, just like
when I was a chef learning
seasoning," he said. "I spent
years studying. It did not
come naturally in the begin-
ning." He spent seven days
a week, 10 hours a day fig-
uring it out,
Gaffrey is happy to be able
to do exactly what he wants.
"Just being able to create
and knowing that people ap-
preciate it," he said. "It's al-
ways so neat to see someone
get excited about what you
do. A lot of people come in
and say they've never seen
anything like this. This is
like retirement compared to
the restaurant business."
Gaffrey and his wife have
maintained a unique rela-
tionship since he picked up
a paintbrush. "We used to
collaborate, but we started
to realize we were clashing,"
he said. "Her style it's
hard to explain either of our
styles is different.
"My ultimate goal
is to paint for the rest of my
life," said Gaffrey. "I want to
paint forever."
