Freeport

By BEN GRAFTON
Following the missed
meeting of May 22 due to
the lack of a quorum, the
Freeport City Council meet-
ing of June 10 was busier
than normal, including the
following agenda items.
Ted Missildine of the
Freeport High School staff
spoke about the accomplish-
ments of the school's Senior
Class in 2008. Alnong other
things, he said that about
46 percent of the class qual-
ified for "Bright Futures"

The afternoon of Fri-
day, June 13, ended up be-
ing decidedly unlucky as
at approximately 3:25 p.m.
SunTrust Bank, located at
1104 U.S. 331 in DeFuniak
Springs was robbed at gun-
point.
DeFuniak Springs Po-'
lice Criminal Investiga-
tions Commander Lt. Bill
Chapman said, according
to a report by SunTrust em-
ployees, a black male armed
with a handgun entered the
bank, his face covered with
a ski mask. The suspect
threatened the tellers with
his weapon and demand-
ed cash, an undisclosed
amount of which he took be-
* fore leaving the bank in the
direction of the Win-Dixie


Marketplace parking lot.
A report from a witness at
a nearby business said the
suspect got in a silver Mit-
subishi four-door car driven
by another suspect after re-
moving a taped-on Florida
license plate, revealing an
Alabama plate underneath.
From there, the two sus-
pects left the DeFuniak
Square parking lot, headed
across Bob Sikes Road and
into the Wal-Mart parking
lot, where the witness lost
sight qf them. DeFuniak
Springs Police (DFSP) ar-
rived on the scene at the
bank minutes later, dis-

Sheriff candidates answer public


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County Pre-
vention Coalition joined
forces with the DeFuniak
Herald-Beach Breeze to
present a candidate forum
on June 12 at the Freeport
High School auditorium for
the upcoming Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs race. Six can-
didates came out to meet,
greet and, answer questions


on a variety of topics. About
100 concerned citizens
turned out to hear their an-
swers. Kevin Howard served
as mediator for the event.
Those in attendance were
Michael A. Adkinson Jr.,
Richard S. Brown, Thomas
M. Cooper, Tony Cornman,
Jimmy L. Macon and Den-
nis Wise. Danny H. Griffith
and Sheriff Ralph Johnson


did not participate.
What follows is a con-
densed account of the eve-
ning's questions and an-
swers.
During the first hour the
candidates answered 11
questions on the issue of
substance abuse in Walton
County. The first
question regarding under-
age drinking in Walton


County and what would the
candidates do to resolve the
issue was answered by Tony
Cornman, "I deal with a lot of
that in my current position.
It is certainly something we
need to pay attention to.

Paxton Council names Melton's successor


By REID TUCKER
The main focus of the
June 10 meeting of the Pax-
ton Town Council was filling
the vacancy left by Council-
man Joe Melton's resigna-
tion last month.
Former Paxton Mayor
Mark Warren was unani-
mously approved by the
council to fill in for' Melton,
at least until the seat goes
up for grabs, along with two
others and the office of may-
or, in the city election on Au-
gust 26. In accordance with


a longstanding precedent, a
resigning council member
makes a recommendation to
the council as to who they'd
like their successor to be,
and this formed the basis for
the council's decision, said
Councilman Bill McRae,
who made the motion to ap-
prove. Warren for the coun-
cil seat. Warren said Melton
had spoken with him about
taking his place on the coun-
cil, a commitment he had no
problem making.
"I'll do the best I can for


the city, if appointed," War-
ren, who resigned from his
position as mayor in 2004.
"I said I will, so I will."
Not everyone on .the
council was initially ready
to vote Warren into the po-
sition. Councilman Bobby
Kemp initially disagreed
with the idea of appoint-
ing Warren to the Council
seat, as he served only six
months of his mayoral term
before turning in a resigna-
tion notice, without citing a
reason aside from "personal


concerns." Kemp said he at-
tempted to dissuade War-
ren from leaving the office,
a decision he felt was a mis-
take. However, when it was
brought to his attention that
Warren would only be guar-
anteed a seat until August
28, Kemp voted along with
the other council members.
"If we [the council mem-
bers] were held to a no-mis-
take policy, none of us would
be here," McRae said.
The council also heard
a presentation by Carolyn


Williams, a representative
of Covenant Hospice about
the services offered by her
organization. Williams' pre-
sentation expounded upon
the benefits of the services
offered Covenant Hospice to
terminally-ill victims of dis-
eases ranging from cancer
to AIDS/HIV, specifically as
they relate to quality of life
care in the last months of a
patient's life. Of particular
note were the recently-re-

Hearing set for sheriffs

office request


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


By DOTTY NIST
On July 8, Walton County
commissioners will consider
in public session a budget
amendment requested by
Ralph Johnson, county sher-
iff.
Johnson attended the
June 10 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting to
request that the required
hearing be set. The BCC
voted unanimously to set
the hearing with little dis-
cussion.
The item under con-
sideration was previously
brought before the BCC on
Feb. 26 by Capt. Eddie Far-
ris of the Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO).
Requested was the rolling
forward of $311,431 from


the WCSO fiscal year 2007
budget to pay for recently
installed upgrades to the
Motorola 911 system.
At that time County Com-
mission Chairman Larry
Jones had commented that
he believed the sheriffs of-
fice should be able to pay the
bill from the current year's
budget, based on the facts
that several hundred thou-
sand dollars had been left
over in the fiscal year 2007
budget at the end of the fis-
cal year, and that both the
current year and previous
year's sheriffs office bud-
gets had been funded at the
same level.
After additional com-
ments from commissioners,
and concern expressed by
citizens that the sheriff had


not attended the meeting,
the BCC voted 5-0 to deny
the proposed budget amend-
ment.
At Johnson's request, the
item was again placed on
the BCC agenda for March
25, but again the sheriff
was not present. Chairman
Jones commented that it
was his understanding that
the request had not been
advertised as a public hear-
ing as legally required, and
that the BCC would there-
fore be unable to take any
action on the matter. There
was no further discussion on
the proposed amendment at
that meeting.
At Johnson's request
the matter was then con-
sidered in Tallahassee by
Gov. Charlie Crist and his
cabinet, sitting as the Flor-
ida Administration Com-
mission, in late May. Both
WCSO representatives and
the BCC were in attendance
to present testimony. The
body's recommendation was
that Johnson reapproach
the BCC with the request.
The public hearing will be
in conjunction with the July
8 BCC meeting, which is
scheduled for 4 p.m. at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.


CHRISTMAS REFLECTIONS chairman Howard Rinker presented a check for $6,000
to DeFuniak Business and Professional Association President Sara Comander. The money
will be used for fireworks for the July 4 celebration. This is the second annual donation by
Christmas Reflections. Shown here are (L-R) DBPA board member Robert Nelson, Rinker,

USASOC remembers fallen heroes


By Spc. Anthony Hawkin,
Jr.
USASOC PAO

More than 200 family
members of 32 Special .Op-
erations Soldiers gathered
in May from across the
country to honor their loved
ones and the ultimate sacri-
fice they made.
The U.S. Army Spe-
cial Operations Command
(USAOC) held its annual
soldier Memorialization
Ceremony on Memorial Pla-
za in remembrance of the
past year's fallen Special
Operations Forces soldiers.
Lt. Gen. Robert W. Wag-
ner, USASOC commanding
general, hosted the event.
"Today . we honor our-
nation's greatest heroes, 32
Special Operations soldiers
who, during the-past year,
answered our nation's call
and gave their life preserv-
ing freedom and our way of
life," Wagner said.

The ceremony, which is
held the week of Memorial
Day each year, serves as a
day of remembrance when
the names of fallen SOF
Warriors are added to the
USASOC Memorial Wall of
Honor. These soldiers died


performing some of the most
dangerous and important
missions in the U.S. mili-
tary. The USASOC Memo-
rial Wall of Honor reflects
much of the history of Army
Special Operations.
"Their image and your
image reflect what is abso-
lutely the very best of Amer-
ica, courageous heroes who
knowingly and selflessly
serve our nation to preserve
our way of life," Wagner said.
"We gather to honor [these]
men and women of uncom-
mon courage, valor and ser-
vice, and the families and
communities who reared,
nurtured and instilled the
values that matured young-
sters into the character of
American heroes."
The names of more than
800 service members rest on
the wall, ranging from Viet-
nam to Somalia, to the cur-
rent war.
The event was an emo-
tional experience for fami-
lies and friends who have al-
ready gone through so much
in losing a loved one. Still,
many proved to be strong.

Glenda Penton of De-
Funiak Springs, FL., the
mother of Sgt. Timothy
Padgett, said dealing with


the grief of losing her son
proved difficult.
"Families deal with grief
in different ways, and some-
times through the pain and
hurt there are some nega-
tive things that come out,"
Penton said. "I found my
healing comes more from
reaching out and continuing
to give. That's what helps
my heart to heal."
Padgett, who was a Spe-
cial Forces medical sergeant
with 1st Battalion, 7th
Special Forces Group (Air-
borne), was killed May 8,
2007 in Afghanistan when
his patrol was ambushed by
enemy fighters. He died of
wounds sustained in the en-
suing firefight.
Penton recalls being in-
terviewed by local media
after her son's death, where
she told the reporters she
would only agree to the in-
terview if they did not speak
negatively about the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
"I would not dare say
anything negative about
something my son believed
so much in," she said. "He
brought so much honor to
our family, and he died do-
ing what he loved doing. He
did it because he loved his
country and his family and


he died to protect them. The
least that we as a family can
do is support that."
As the last roll call of the
fallen soldiers was read,
the memorial wall was un-
veiled, displaying Sgt. Tim-
othy Padgett's name, along
with the names of his 31
brothers-in-arms.
"This is not an easy mo-
ment," Wagner said. "But it
is forever a proud moment."
Seeing the name of her
son on the wall invoked
memories for Penton, "Peo-
ple often don't realize that
when we have memories,
there are emotions that are
associated with those mem-
ories," Penton said. "Again,
our heart swells from the
pride that our son brought
to our family. The loss is
just an emptiness that you
have to learn to live with."
Wagner assured them
that their loss will never
be forgotten. 'With all that
is pure in America and the
world, the absolute and last-
ing truth is that our fallen
soldiers are good men of
the highest order," he said.
'Their service was selfless.
They are our friends, our he-
roes, and they will remain
in our hearts and memories
'forever."

vamped bereavement ser-
vices offered by the hospice,
such as a grief counselor
who, in many cases, stays
with a family up to a year
after the death of a patient.
"The mission of Covenant
Hospice is to add life to days
when days can't be added to
life," Williams said. '"We're
there to make the last days
of patients as comfortable as
possible."
McRae said he and his
family had had the opportu-
nity to make use of hospice
services provided by Cove-
nant in the past after deaths
in his family, and said, as
a community, Paxton ben-
efits from a close relation-
ship with the organization,
saying that he and the rest
of the council "appreciated
each and every one" of Cov-
enant's employees for their
dedication.
Other council business
was occupied with approv-
ing two amendments to the
Paxton town charter and
another resolution amend-
ing an election date-related
amendment approved just
last month.
Local governments are
required by Florida state
statutes to periodically as-
sess the success or failure of
their comprehensive plans,
which encompass policy-
making and city growth and
development, so the amend-
ment changing Paxton's


plan was strictly a matter
of annual business as usual.
Their resolution relating to
sexual predators/offenders
was an area of great con-
cern to the Council. At the
first reading of the proposed
amendment at the Council's
May meeting, McRae said
that the resolution was "the
least the city can do" to pro-
tect Paxton residents. The
amendment, which passed
unanimously, was conceived
in reaction to reports of a
registered sex offender on
the premises of the Paxton
Dixie Youth baseball com-
plex during regular season
play.
Finally, after adopting a
resolution last month which

election date to match Wal-

primary elections, rather

rather than Nov. 4, as that
would have caused Paxton's

in the year than they had

moving around the elec-

Paxton residents turn out

solidating two election days

A moratorium



on bad ideas

By RON KELLEY
Gov. Charlie Crist- has announced that he is not against
off-shore drilling anymore. Gov. Crist is now in support
of a proposal to leave it up to each state whether to drill
for oil and natural gas. Let's see... where else have I been
hearing about that idea? Aha! That's the same proposal
made by Sen. John McCain, who is, reportedly considering
Crist as a possible running mate.
Hmmm. I don't care who wants to be vice president, this
is still a bad idea.
Much to his credit, Gov. Jeb Bush staunchly disagreed
with his brother on this issue, as should every Florida gov-
ernor. It's a deal-breaker. America can not drill its way
out of this energy fiasco. From drawings to drillings, the
process takes 10-20 years. Because of poor choices made
over the last 10-20 years, there's no time to drill our way
to lower gas prices. Thus, offshore drilling will not reduce
gas prices. A number of countries allow offshore drilling,
but their gas prices are even higher than here in America.
The United Kingdom pays $8.37 a gallon; Norway pays
$7.33; Germany shells out $6.72; Canadians pay $4.34 at
the pump and Japan is already at $4.16.
It's not even necessary to cancel the drilling moratori-
um. Only about 20 percent of the acreage currently avail-
able for drilling is actually being used. Of the 7,740 active
leases and 41 million acres open to drilling in the outer
continental shelf, only 1,655 leases and 8.1 million acres
are in production. That means 30 million acres still avail-
able but not in use.
The price of oil is set on the world market. Ending the
moratorium on offshore drilling in the United States likely
would have no impact on gas prices. Despite two record-
breaking lease sales in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico re-
cently, prices continue to skyrocket. Big Oil has demon-
strated that -they do not mind squeezing Americans dry,
without shame or remorse, and that's not likely to change
unless they are forced to do so by the next administration,
actifig in the best long-term interests of the American peo-
ple.
Closer to home, drilling is terrible for Florida tourism.
Florida's economy is based in large part on tourism our
beaches draw visitors from around the world. Shoreline
processing equipment would litter the coast with pipelines,
roads and helipads and threaten the state's tourism indus-
try. With the current state of Florida's economy, it makes
no sense to promote drilling. Thank God for Eglin AFB,
Tyndall AFB, Hurlburt Field and the N.A.S. Without the
need for their missions, who knows what we'd wake up to
see just off the much-heralded beaches of south Walton.
U.S. Congressman Jeff Miller recently'announced that
House Republicans have introduced H.R. 3089, the No
More Excuses Energy Act of 2007. "This comprehensive
energy bill tackles all of the major topics of the energy de-
bate," he said. "New American oil refineries, investment in
clean energy sources such as wind, nuclear, and captured
carbon dioxide, and the opening of the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and America's Deep-Sea Energy
Reserves are just a few of the solutions in this bill that will
help combat America's dependence on foreign oil."
It will certainly take all of those energy sources and
several others to begin to reduce our dependency on oil in
general and foreign oil in particular. If America produced
its own sustainable energy supply, the entire dynamics of
the world, especially in the Middle East, would change and
Arab Muslims would no longer dictate to the greatest na-
tion on the planet, gouging its citizens while funding its
enemies.
I call on Gov. Crist to renew his oath to oppose any new
off-shore drilling leases closer than the Outer Shelf in the
Gulf of Mexico and other areas around the state. Make
your oath a part of your legacy to Florida.
It's the kind of thing a vice president would do.

Editor:
Thank you for printing the article by Alicia Leonard.
I especially appreciated her research on the internnet con-
cerning pygmy goats. I learned things I didn't know, such
as their relatively short history in the United States. I had
several calls from people who were concerned that I had to
give them up. Some of them who live outside DeFuniak
offered to take them and I appreciated their offers.
I had given them to some very dear friends who lived
on acreage out of town. A huge bonus for Tom Sawyer and
Huckleberry Finn is that once again they have boys to play'
with, as they did before coming to me. I think they grew up
thinking they were just two of the boys who happened to
have four legs instead of two. Now they have a young fam-
ily. a couple of boys: cats, dogs and plenty of green grass to
enjoy. What else could two little goats want?
I appreciated the support of so many friends--especially
Marianne. Celia, Ann, and Sonny.
Thank you. DeFuniak, for your concern. Don't be sad for
me. I'm not.
There's nothing that I can say, Barbara, that can fully
express how happy the time and efforts of you and your
boys made me. I love the fictitous goat my father gave me
when I was three. Believe me, the real things were much
more gratifying.
Sincerely
Mary Lind Devlin

Editor:
After reading the DFS Herald, 6/12/08, I was very upset,
to say the least. My grandson is a senior and a 2008 gradu-
ate of Walton High School (WHS). but his pictures and his
name was eliminated from the hst of graduates. Yet some
other seniors who didn't have enough credit to graduate
were listed.
1 don't condone what my grandson and 10 other seniors
did by vandalizing WHS in April of 2008. This was a se-
nior prank that went too far. and they should pay for all
the damages.
They lost their senior trip to Chicago. had to enter re-
medial school and this sounds like a joke as these seniors
were taught work below the senior level. Whose bright idea
was this?
They couldn't graduate with their class, couldn't go to
the pronm. have to pay over $1,100 each, which I think is
only right, plus do over 100 hours of community service,
which I feel is fair. But where do you draw the line?
Do our educators want their blood, too? They are only
young and immature teenagers. These seniors know it was
wrong and are paying for it now. But they deserved having
their names and pictures in the paper with their class of
2008, which they are still part of.
You know there Democrats want a change in Washington,
and at this point, I feel with elections coming up in Nov. 08,
the people of Walton County need to make a change too.
especially with the educators we elect in key positions.

Editor:
I bet everyone remembers those bright blue signs put
up in south Walton a couple of months back. I bet everyone
remembers when the south Walton citizens were upset be-
cause they had no hand in designing them. This is what a
few citizens had to say about the signs at the March 26,
2008, TDC meeting-"They should be donated to McDon-
alds, sold to the Panama City Airport, or used as an artifi-
cial reef in the Gulf of Mexico."
Well, why are there big, bright blue metal signs now
placed on U S. 331 N as you come into Paxton from Flo-
rala. also on U.S. 90 coming into Walton County from Oka-
loosa County' Did taxpayers purchase more of these signs
for north Walton County or did the officials simply move
the signs that south Walton didn't want? Did the citizens
of Paxton and Mossy Head allow the placement of these
signs? The citizens of south Walton said the signs were
"unnatural" with their area's scenery. In my opinion, the
signs are definitely unnatural with the "country hillside"
scenery and wxe have a voice, too!

Editor:
The issue with "borrow pits" in Walton County is that
they are not "borrow pits." They are unregulated strip
mines. A "borrow pit" is a small excavation used for a small
job on the same property. Minung is "any activity that en-
tails the excavation or removable of earth in excess of 100
cubic yards approximatelyy four dump truck loads)..."
Hundreds of dump trucks a day are hauling thousands
of cubic yards of sand out of more than 100 illegal strip
mines all over Walton County and they are still finding
more. There's n big hole in back of Freeport High School
where kids ride their ATV and dirt bikes.
There is no oversight, no regulation. and no one looking
out for the safety of the people of Walton County. Because
they are not classified correctly, they do not have to have
fences to keel) children and arummals out of the deep ponds
that form in the bottom of the mines. There is no require-
ient to reclaim the stripped land to repair the devasta-
tion. There are no berms and barriers to keep the runoff
out of our wetlands, creeks, and rivers. The environmental
damage to some of the headwaters that feed the Choctaw-
hatchee is "irreparable" according to the Department of
Environmental Regulation.
We want to know what prompted the county commis-
sion (BCC) to offer the "exemption" to the law that forbids
this from happening. We want to know why the BCC has
failed to act to protect our families and the value of our
homes. We want to know why the BCC does not declare a
moratorium on new mines until they can bring the law to
bear on the illegal mines currently tearing up the county.
We are trying to understand why the county has not acted
quickly' and efficiently to stop the ecological disaster and
protect the citizens.
If you would like answers to these questions please join
us Thursday June 26. at the courthouse annex in south
Walton at 6 p.m.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE. 19,2008

CAA awards MSE mini


grants and scholarships


The Cultural Arts As-
sociation has awarded first
quarter mini-grants to four
teachers at Maude Saunders
Elementary School. Former
CAA President Jack Abbit
and CAA Grants committee
member Sue Joffe present-
ed checks to Kathy Harrah,
Heather Hester, Sharon
Mosely and Rachel Tarr at
their school in DeFuniak
Springs.
The CAA Quarterly Teach-
er Mini-Grants are intended
to aid teachers in enhanc-
ing the visual, literary and
'performing arts experience
for all Walton County school
children, K through 12th
grade, including private and
home-schooled groups.
The CAA also awards
Quarterly Mini-Scholar-
ships to need-based stu-
dents, Annual College
Scholarships to high school
seniors who will be study-
ing art at the college level,
and to adults interested in
continuing their arts educa-
tion.
The CAA began fund-
ing summer art education


for children in need nearly
twenty years ago. It was in
2003 when Abbit was Presi-
dent that the Board voted
to approve an Educational
Giving Program, and a com-
mittee was formed that in-
cluded South Walton High
School art instructor, Jerry
Pilcher, Butler Elementary
School art teacher, Con-
stance Rogers, and CAA
supporter, Denny Wenrick.
"Our original goal was to ex-
pand funding of arts in edu-
cation," Abbit recalls, "we
continued funding summer
art programs for elemen-
tary school children and
added college scholarships
and grants for art teachers
to supplement the shrinking
funds available to them."
SThrough growing CAA
support, increased participa-
tion of community leaders,
and improved return on in-
vestment from fund raising
events, the Board was able
to successfully implement
the Educational Giving Pro-
gram. To put the program in
use, CAA coordinated with
the Walton County Board


of Education to notify all
Walton County schools that
various opportunities were
available through CAA for
grants and scholarships.
"We set up a process with
procedures, forms, criteria
and committees to distrib-
ute, receive, review and
award funding to those se-
lected," Abbit says.
For Maude Saunders art
teacher, Kathy Harrah, this
latest grant marks her nine-
teenth award since the edu-
cational grant program be-
gan in 2003. Over the years,
she has used her grants to
enhance her art activities,
which have included the art
of floor cloth painting and
the ancient Egyptian art
of painting with wax. Her
students also experienced
"Paint What You Hear,"
in which the children lis-
tened to the tone, color and
rhythm of live music played
by a local musician and
painted what they heard in
the music. After Harrah re-
ceived a .Fulbright Scholar-
ship to visit Japan in 2002,
she used a CAA grant to


Rhonda Skipper, along
with Charles Bronson,
Florida Agricultural Com-
missioner and the Paxton
FFA Chapter are teaming
up with the Florida FFA As-
sociation to encourage sales
of the FFA specialty license
plate.
More than 15,000 Agri-
science education students
participate in the Florida
FFA Association. Proceeds
from the sell of the FFA spe-
cialty license plate directly
,benefit FFA members, agri-
,.ultural education, students
,and teachers throughout
Florida. FFA makes a posi-
tive difference in the lives
of students by developing
their potential for premier
leadership, personal growth
and career success through
agricultural education.
The National FFA Or-
ganization, formally known
as the Future Farmers of
America, is a national youth


organization of 500,823 stu-
dents members in 7,358 lo-
cal FFA chapters in all 50
states, Puerto Rico and the
Virgin Islands. The Nation-


al FFA Organization chang-
es its name in 1988 in rec-
ognition of the growth and
diversity of agriculture and
agricultural education.

purchase items for a Japa-
nese treasure chest so her
students could "visit" Japan
themselves. They examined
everyday items from Japan,
exchanged notes, emails,
artwork and photos with
Japanese students, and also
learned several Japanese
words.
Sharon Mosely says her
Pre-K through First grade
students enjoy creative
learning, and the grants
she has been awarded over
the years have allowed her
to purchase new and stim-
ulating activities for the
children, including supplies
that enhance her language
arts class.
"The children make
things like ABC necklaces
and crazy alphabet letters,"
Mosely says, "which become
artwork that can be exhibit-
ed in the classroom." Mosely
was able to purchase a dry-
ing rack for her classroom,
which she uses for painted
masterpieces and collages.
She also used grant mon-
ey to purchase music CDs
and a CD storage holder.
She says, "Listening to the
music makes the children
happy and gets them mov-
ing." Mosely says the grants
have allowed her to develop
a more well-rounded class,
allowing the students to ex-
plore learning in new ways,
stimulating their minds,
motor skills and creativity.
Heather Hester teaches
pre-K students with disabil-
ities at Maude Saunders,
and she admits that without
the CAA grants she would
not have been able to afford
the necessary items for her
learning centers. Hester says
she gets excited each quar-
ter when she gets to write a

(if not most) diabetics are
genetically predisposed to
acquiring diabetes, the con-
dition itself tends to result
more from nurture than
from nature and while the
complications related to the
disorder are progressive and
difficult to treat, they are'
not inevitable consequences
of the disorder.
An avoidance of an ex-
cessive amount of certain
types of food items can of-
ten preclude the occurrence
of the disorder and can also
prevent the onset of compli-
cations once the disorder is
established. Moreover, mod-
erate exercise throughout
life will aid in offsetting the
"inevitable."
Armed with what is cur-
rently known about diabe-
tes and the variety of treat-
ments available, there is
little excuse for the current
astonishing prevalence of
the disorder or for a progres-


sion to end-stage complica-
tions in the middle-aged in-
dividual. In fact, it is easier
to prevent and to treat dia-
betes today than to treat or
prevent the common cold.
Although there are nu-
merous so-called "diabetic
diets" available, put sim-
ply, one should avoid exces-
sive consumption of sweets,
starches, fats, sodas, juices,
alcoholic beverages, gravies
and sauces. Dairy products
may also be a potential prob-
lem for many folks prone to
becoming diabetics. The diet
should concentrate instead
of water, vegetables, fresh
fruit (in moderation) and
meats (unless you happen
to be a vegetarian or vegan.)
It's not possible to put an
ample enough exclamation
mark on the importance of
activity and moderate ex-
ercise on the prevention or
stabilization of diabetes.

Walton County Health Department advises

precautions against mosquito-borne diseases


The Walton County
Health Department urges
the public to take mea-
sures to protect themselves
against mosquito-borne dis-
eases. During the summer
months, Florida experiences
an increase in its mosquito
populations. Taking a few
simple steps can drastically
reduce the chances of con-
tracting a mosquito-borne
illness.

A Hurlburt homecoming


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


By REID TUCKER
Air Force Sgt. Huey
Wyche II has a busy week-
end coming up if his wife,
,Monique, has anything to
say about it. Wyche and
214 other servicemen and
women deployed to Iraq
and Afghanistan arrived at
Hurlburt Field's Commando
Hangar Monday afternoon
,amid a flurry of excitement,
joy and, in many cases,
-relief. Wyche, an avion-
ics technician with the 1st
.Special Operations Mainte-
,nance Squadron, missed his
son Huey III's first birthday
,on May 28 by a scant two
weeks and his first wedding
anniversary by one week.
Factoring in Mother's Day
and Father's Day, Monique
said her husband will be
booked solid for the com-
ing weekend, and from the
look on his face, he isn't
complaining. "It's going to
:be one big party this week-
end," Monique said. "I'm so
-excited. I can't wait."
Monique said that it was
almost as if she lived a sepa-
rate life while her husband
was deployed to the Middle
,East. Before they were mar-
ried, Monique said she used
.to stress herself out over
.Wyche's safety, but lately
has developed a novel way
:of coping.
"I shop a lot," she said,
;chuckling. "I do my own
:thing, and mostly that
:means spending a lot of
:money when he's gone."
During his six years in the
,Air Force, Wyche spent more
*time serving overseas than
in this country, earning him
:a special commendation, but
:to him, the biggest reward is
:just being able to talk to his
.wife face-to-face and spend
time with his family. Dur-


ing his deployment, he was
only allowed two 15-minute
phone calls each week, and
since he wasn't allowed to
discuss the particulars of'
his mission or even send e-
mails, communication was
difficult at best. Other than
getting some rest and eating
some of his wife's macaroni
and cheese, Wyche said he
wasn't making too many
plans for the coming weeks.
"I have no idea what to do,"
Wyche said, grinning broad-
ly. "And that feels great."
On the other end of the
hangar, Denise Warrior had
her hands full waiting for
her husband, Staff Sgt. Wil-
liam Warrior, to be debriefed
and make his entrance. The
Warriors have four boys, Ko-
rtez, 11, Samaj, 8, Nicholas,
7 and Bernard, 3, as well as
the soon-to-be-born Arianna,
the couple's first daughter.
All the Kortez children wore
shirts with "Welcome Home,
Daddy!" across the front (the
lower half of Mom's shirt
said the same thing). Denise
said she's looking forward to
having William, a helicopter
gunner, home to "chase the
kids" while she gets a break
and waits for her daughter's
due date in July.
"I'm going to lock myself
in the bedroom for a day and
get some rest," Denise said.
"I'm so relieved to have him
home."
While Warrior and his
family had their reunion,
Jenny Malloy waited for
her husband, Tech. Sgt. Mi-
chael Malloy to stroll up the
hangar's red carpet. Jenny
said she and her two young
daughters kept a calendar
at home and the almost 80
ticks on it got harder and
harder for Karley, 3 and
Julia, 4 with each passing


day.
"This is the first [of their
father's deployments] that
they've been old enough to
really understand what it
means," Jenny said, tearing
.up a little but still smiling.
"We can't wait to see him."
She said that, in addition
to it being very emotionally
difficult without her hus-
band at home, one of the
biggest challenges was tak-
ing his place fixing things
around the house when
things go wrong, which
seems to invariably happen
when Malloy deploys.
"We learn to fix sprin-
klers when they break and
how to pick out what kind of
lawnmower to buy," Jenny
said, laughing. "Everything
seems to run smoothly until
he leaves." Fortunately, she
said, she has the support
of her close friend Jennifer
Murphy, whose husband,
Tech. Sgt. Jacob "Jake" Mur-
phy, not only came home on
Monday, too, but also served
in the 16th Special Opera-
tions Squadron with Malloy.
Jennifer said she prayed a
lot for her husband's safety,
and that her faith in God got
her through the toughest
times without him at home.
"You don't ever get used
to it [not having Jacob
home], but you make a rou-
tine and stick to it," Jennifer
said. "You just have to have
faith and try to make it day
by day."
Murphy was excited to see
his wife and daughters, but
unlike many other returning
servicemen and women, had
big plans for that evening..
"I'm taking the kids to
see 'Kung Fu Panda,"' Mur-
phy said. "It feels great just
to hang out with them and
catch up."


A CROWD gathers around the entrance gate to Commando Hangar as the plane carrying
215 of Hurlburt Field's airmen touches down Monday afternoon.


KARLEY AND JULIA
Malloy, aged 3 and 4, re-
spectively, said they were
glad to have their dad, Sgt.
Michael Malloy home from
a roughly three-month tour
in Iraq. Malloy said the best
part about being home see-
ing his wife Jenny and his
girls. They agreed.


SGT. HUEY WYCHE II
reunited with his son, Huey
III, and wife Monique after
serving in Iraq for the past
few months. Wyche's week-
end is booked full with a
corn bination of his first wed-
ding anniversary, his son's
first birthday, Mother's and
Father's Day party coming
Up.


TECH SGT. Jacob Mur-
phy. Murphy, who returned
to Hurlburt Field from his
ninth deployment overseas,
said he was going to treat the
family to dinner and "Kung
Fu Panda."


STAFF SGT. William Warrior had no trouble picking out his wife four sons (from left
to right), Kortez, 11, Samaj, 8, Bernard, 3, and Nicholas, 7, their brightly-colored shirts
emblazoned with "Welcome Home, Daddy!" Warrior and his wife Denise are expecting their
first daughter, to be named Arianna, in July.


Final acreage reporting dates quickly

approaching in Walton and Okaloosa counties


Jeff Barber, Executive
:Director of the Walton and
'Okaloosa County Farm Ser-
.vice Agency (FSA), reminds
producers in both counties
;of the acreage reporting
:deadlines for spring seeded
:crops. If producers miss the
:acreage reporting deadline
:dates, a late filing fee will be
;charged.
: "Producers are required
'to file an FSA-578, Report of
Acreage, certification for the
farm by June 30 for corn,
cotton, peanuts, soybeans


and CRP," Barber said. To
be considered timely, acre-
age reports on crops are due
in the county office by June
30.
It is also very important
that producers report crop
losses, including those in-
sured under Federal Crop
Insurance (FCIC) and Non-
insured Assistance Program
(NAP) within 15 days of the
date damage occurred or 15
days from the date damage
is apparent. Losses and or
damages to. crops must be


reported after each disaster
occurrence. and in a timely
manner to insure continued
eligibility for benefits.
Producers that have a
crop fail due to a disaster-
related condition may apply
for failed acres on the crop
by completing an FSA-576
before the disposition of the
crop. For insured crops,
acreage must have been
reported as failed acreage
before the final crop report-
ing date for the crop and the
producer must provide the


County Office crop insurance
data to support the data re-
ported on the FSA-578.
Producers are encouraged
to visit the Walton or Oka-
loosa County FSA offices to
file the required FSA-578
certification report before
the deadline dates expire.
Filing an accurate acreage
report for all crops and land
uses, including failed acre-
age and prevented planting
acreage, can prevent the
loss of benefits for a variety
of programs.

System Task Force, aimed
at increasing the availabil-
ity of Baccalaureate Degree
programs for students.
When Florida Senate
President Ken Pruitt took
the stage at the Mattie
Kelley Fine & Performing
Arts Center in Niceville,
he reminded the large, en-
thusiastic crowd of another
day in history. "Twenty-
one years ago, on this date,
Ronald Regan told Mikhail


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


Gorbachev to tear down the
Berlin wall and that is what
we are doing here today, Mr.
Governor, we are tearing
down some walls as well."
Pruitt likened the new
college bill to the G.I. Bill
enacted by Franklin D.
Roosevelt in 1944. "This bill
will have the similar eco-
nomic impacts the G. I. Bill
had for our country. I truly
believe we are witnessing
the second edition of the


G. I. Bill and this college is
ready to help undertake the
enhancement to the econo-
my and its citizens this bill
will bring."
Chancellor of Florida's
community colleges, Dr.
Willis Holcombe said the
bill was already generat-
ing interest from commu-
nity colleges not only across
the country but across the
world, "We are already get-
ting phone calls about how


we accomplished this and
would we be willing to help
other states and countries
to form their own pilot pro-
grams," said Holcombe.
Rep. and Speaker Desig-
nate Ray Sansom, R-Destin,
told the crowd, "Today is a
landmark day for our great
state. The passage of this
bill will help our Florida col-
lege system to be the spring-
board to the next great
generation. By maintaining


our intellectual advantage,
we will continue to lead the
world through education."
Crist received a stand-
ing ovation upon taking the
stage and responded to the
crowd after being introduced
by Sansom, 'You may not
know how special a man you
have, but we do," referring
to Sansom. Crist continued
"I am a blessed man to be
able to serve with all of these
great people on stage. They


give full time of themselves
to be good public servants
and they make my job all
the easier. So many people
go through the public school
system, including myself,
and it gives everyone the op-
portunity to reach for their.
dreams. That's what sign-
ing this bill is about. Giving
everyone equal access to an
outstanding education."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


WHS Class of 1958 holds reunion


Elvis lives. He was the
guest performer at the Wal-
ton High School Class of
1958 50th reunion, held May
30 and 31 at the Shrine Club
in DeFuniak Springs, FL.
Elvis gave an outstanding
performance and brought
the house down as only Elvis
can do. He started with "See
See Rider," did "Poke Salad
Annie," "Viva Las Vegas,"
and his ever-famous trilogy.
He made Luverne Richard-
son's heart stand still and
gave his scarves to his ador-
ing fans. After his excellent
performance the next event
was a male beauty contest.
They had all the outlying


communities represented,
such as Mr. Freeport, Mr.
Valleyview, Mr. Glendale
and so on. They had five
female judges. The contes-
tants were judged on poise,
biceps, legs, hair, tush and
intelligence. The votes
were tallied by the firm of
McFatter, McFatter and
McFatter and the winners
were to be announced on
Saturday night. The night
still young, the attendees
thought Elvis had left the
building, but caught him
just in time to start the sock
hop off with "Jail House
Rock," with his backup
singers grabbing fellows out


of the audience. The class of
1958 rocked the night away
as only they could do it.
Saturday the reunion re-
sumed with a catered meal
by Jill's catering of Vernon,
FL/ Roger Whitiker was the
D.J. and J-N-C- Photogra-
phy of Laurel Hill was the
photographer. The Shrine
Club was decorated with the
school colors and even had a
parkway sign. There were
rock and roll decorations
everywhere. The winners of
the beauty contest were an-
nounced. Mr. DeFuniak (In-
gram McDonald) last but
not least, Mr. Gaskin (Ralph
Grinner)) was second to the


best with Mr. Liberty (Mil-
ton Pearson) being crowned
king of the class of 1958.
The sad time was the
memory table. It was heavy
with 24 candles and each
deceased member was rec-
ognized by a classmate.
The music flowed and they
danced the night away.
Both evenings were spent
reminiscing and getting re-
acquainted, with lots of "Do
you remember tales," a great
time was had by all. A lot of
people worked a lot of hours
to make this a success, but
only the class of 1958 could
have come up with "Elvis"
for their 50th reunion.

had improved, particularly
those of students in the low-
er quartile of the class. He
ended his presentation by
stating, "These are the best
students I have taught in
my life."
City Planner Latilda
Henninger told the Council
that owners of the 1.6 acre
Agerton property located on
the east side of U.S. 331 just
south of its intersection with
LaGrange Road were asking
for C-2 commercial zoning.
The Council approved public
readings of an ordinance to
include the second reading
at the first Council meeting
in August. -
Cynthia Williams of the
West Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council made a short
presentation about the need
for the city to produce a five-
year water system work
plan to address expected
increases in demand and
capital needs to provide im-


provements. She noted that
although the city was past
the due date for submission
of the plan, there would be
no sanctions imposed. This
work will require an amend-
ment to the city's compre-
hensive plan.
City Engineer Charles
Peters reported that the
work on the treatment plant
was going ahead slowly. He
said about 50 percent of the
piping is installed and that
the contractor has seven
months in which to complete
the work.
Peters said that work was
going ahead on the Lazy
Days area sewer project.
He doesn't think completion
should take too long.
Engineer Tony Peters
said that the project for the
city and Walton County to
use the same procedure to
calculate traffic concurrency
issues is close to completion.
It will be necessary to ex-


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008


ecute a standard agreement
with the county. He report-
ed that most of the traffic in-
frastructure loading is now
filled and that the time to
start assessing "fair share"
fees is here. Henninger add-
ed that the city can collect
"fair shares" now. Peters
will present examples of the
calculation methods at the
next meeting.
Charles Peters added
that here-ofore traffic load-
ing on the major roads was
the primary issue. Now the
problem is starting to af-
fect the city streets. The city
will have to start working
on meeting the paving and
right-of-way width specifica-
tions that are in the land de-
velopment code. Blueberry
Street is an example where
this problem exists.
City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson presented the sec-
ond reading of the annexa-
tion ordinance to bring the
Lion's Club property on the


south side of SR-20 West
into the city. The Council
approved the reading.
Loretta Burton addressed
the council concerning a
right-of-way to provide ac-
cess to the land-locked prop-
erty at 107 Harrison Street.
She reported that she has a
deed for a seven- foot strip
to permit Tyler Street to be
opened up by the city. In
the general discussion that
followed several obstacles
were discussed including
whether or not two CHEL-
CO. power poles are located
in the middle of the right of
way. The city will research
the issues and then propose
a plan to open Tyler Street.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
askedfor and received Coun-
cil approval to pay the out-
standing amount of $15,400
due for the installation of a
safety canopy at the Free-
port Regional Sports Com-
plex in Hammock Bay.
The amount outstanding


on the construction of the
new City Hall is $141,855,
most of which is cover by
grant money. The city's
share of this amount is ap-
proximately $12,000.
There was only one addi-
tional respondent to the ad-
vertisement for a manager
of the Sports Complex. The
Council approved the hiring
of Shaun Arntz to fill this
position.
Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported to the Council that
three bids had been received
for the project to install an ir-
rigation system for the City
Hall property. The Council
approved awarding a bid,
"...not to exceed $10,800..."
for this work.
Marse and Councilman
Earl King advised the Coun-
cil that the city will have to
relocate water meters and
hydrants in the North Bay
Water System area because
of a Walton County pav-
ing project. Four bids, one
of which is disqualified be-
cause it did not cover the en-
tire scope of work, have been
received for this project. The


Council approved award-
ing a bid in the amount of
$20,800.'
Fire Chief Ben Greenslat
asked for and received ap-
proval to propose the use
of city owned property on
CR-3280 as the location of a
fire/EMS station. If the pro-
posal is accepted, the county
would station an EMS am-
bulance and the city would '
station a fire truck at the
site. This location would
have the advantage of low-
ering insurance rates for
home owners within a five-
mile radius of the station.
Haynes advised the Coun-
cil that a software crash had
occurred on the city system.
It may be necessary to re-
place the software to solve
the problem.

At the end of the meeting
Councilman Charlie Sim-
mons and Councilwoman
Jean Arrant apologized to
the Council for their absenc-
es which caused the cancel-
lation of the meeting sched-
uled for May 22 due to the
lack of a quorum.

the lookout for the potential-
ly-armed suspects. DFSPD
simultaneously released the
descriptions of the suspects'
vehicle and license plate to
police agencies in neighbor-
ing counties, including the
Okaloosa County Sheriffs.
Office (OCSO).
According to OCSO ar-
rest reports, less than an
hour after DFSPD sent out
the communique an Oka-
loosa County Deputy spot-
ted the suspects heading
west on Interstate 10 in the
direction of Crestview. The
deputy caught up with the
suspects and performed a
traffic stop at the Shell Sta-
tion at 3301 S. Ferdon Blvd.
in Crestview, and upon
searching the car, discov-
ered the stolen money, the
clothing and ski mask worn
by the suspect, as well as a
toy resembling a small-bore
handgun used to hold up the
bank.
The suspects were identi- ,
fled by the OCSO as Lewis
Maurice Rich, III, -44, oT
Belleview, Florida, who en-
tered the bank and getaway
driver Kandar Lashell Her-
ron, 30, of Crestview. Both
were arrested and charged
with armed robbery and
grand theft and transported
to the Okaloosa County Jail,
until they were extradited
to Walton County Monday
morning. The pair could face
additional charges in Wal-
ton County, Chapman said,
but due to evidence found in
their car, are also persons
of interest in robberies in
a series of bank robberies
in surrounding Panhandle
counties, including a bank
robbery the day before in
Panama City Beach and are
being held without bail.
Chapman said the cas-
es quick turnaround was
a textbook example of co-
ordination of information
between law enforcement
agencies and the public, and
that without the detailed re-
ports of eye witnesses, the
case wouldn't have been re-
solved nearly as quickly.
"The assistance of the
public really came in handy,"
Chapman said. "They [the
witnesses] maintained their
cool and we got clear concise
information that resulted in
the subsequent arrest of the
suspects."
DFSPD Chief Mike Ad-
kinson was quick to thank
the OCSO for its coopera-
tion, as well as the dedica-
tion of his own officers and

the public. "I'm very proud
of the dedication and pro-
fessionalism of our officers,"
Adkinson said. "This just
goes to show that when you
take the time to do things
right, you get good results.
I'm very pleased with how it
worked out."
In a strange turn of
events, Adkinson said in a
phone interview that toward
the end of a meeting Friday
afternoon, he and some of
his staff had a discussion
about the proper procedure
in the event of a bank rob-
bery. He said it was only a
few minutes after the meet-
ing concluded that the first
of the reports from SunTrust
employees came in.
It's probably nothing
more than a coincidence,
Adkinson said. However,
3:25 p.m. in the 24-hour
clock system is 15:25. One,
five, two and five add up
to 13, and that, he said, is
something to think about.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


FORUM FE

are in compliance, but we
have to keep on that 10 per-
cent and the young adults
who purchase the beer for
their underage friends."
Cooper agreed and said,
"We have to take the ap-
peal of the alcohol away
from them. Just pouring it
out doesn't go far enough. I
don't think the idea of put-
ting everybody in jail for a
six pack of beer is going to
solve it either. Educating
the parents and the kids is
another step in the process
to improve compliance and
the outcome." Ad k inson
told the crowd, I think that
there are a few specific mea-
sures we can take to handle
this situation. DUI check
points, going after busi-
nesses that sell to minors
has proven to help curb this,
as well as working with kids
before they become involved
with alcohol. I'm a very big
supporter of the Boys and
Girls Club in DeFuniak and
I think organizations like
theirs are the type of things
we need to see encouraged
in Walton County to cut
down on the idle time we
see kids have and that idle
time is when they reach for
things they don't need to be
involved with. Dennis Wise
joined in and said, 'We need
to go out and educate the
sellers and the public about
reporting those who sell to
the underaged."
Brown said, "I think we
need to see an underage
drinking court in this coun-
ty. I'd like to see us mirror
the underage drinking court
in .Koalas County. They
have a very good programs
that works."


1OM PAGE 1-A

you we have a problem here
and we need to address it."
Wise agreed and said, "If a
student shows up at school
in this state the parents
should be notified and the
parents need to be educated
on helping to stop the prob-
lem." Cooper said educators
need to be taught how to
recognize the symptoms of
a student under the influ-
ence. "Once they recognize
the symptoms, we need to
get that child some help," he
said. "There is an underly-
ing problem if a kid comes
to school drunk or high and
we need to find that problem
and help them take care of
it."
The moderator asked the
candidates about the equali-
ty of drug charges across ra-
cial lines. Macon responded,
"I don't care what color you
are, if you break the law,
you will have to pay for it. I
lost my brother to drugs and
personally I will be a very
aggressive sheriff against
drug and drug dealers."
Cornman said, "I'm like the
other gentlemen up here.
Color has no play in it. You
break the and you are going
to jail. I'd put out notice if
I'm elected sheriff and you
are dealing drugs, you are
going to jail."
Cooper said hitting drug
dealers in the wallet by us-
ing the law to claim prop-
erty can also help. "We need
to take their funds and shut
them out of business." Ad-
kinson said, "The budget
request for the sheriffs de-
partment is $14.5 million,
which is roughly a $1.5 mil-
lion increase over last year's
budget. The priorities of
that budget are set solely


"I don't care what color you are, if you break the
law, you will have to pay for it. I lost my brother
to drugs and personally I will be a very aggressive
sheriff against drugs and drug dealers." Jimmy
Macon


Macon rounded out the
responses and said. "I think
we need to get involved with
the kids. I think ,if we need
to educate and enforce the
laws but we also need to get
involved with our kids so we
know what they are doing."
The question of deputies
being able to smoke in coun-
ty cars and in uniform was
the next question to draw a
response. Adkinson respond-
ed, "I think it's a known fact
at this point the health dam-
age that smoking can lead
to. At the DeFuniak Police
Department, we have ad-
opted a zero tolerance policy
while in uniform. As adults,
when off the clock, they can
choose to do as they like, but
not while in uniform. It has
to do with the message it
sends to the children."
Brown took the stand
against tobacco products
a little further and said, "I
think they should be out-
lawed in law enforcement.
I've seen several deputies in
the last two and a half years
of working at the WCSO
that have dip or Skoal run-
ning out of the side of their
mouths. That's a bad and
sloppy image portrayed by
the sheriffs office."
Statistics about the issue
of drugs in Walton County
were mentioned by Corn-
man. "The statistics are
disturbing. Walton County
ranks higher on state av-
erage for high school and
middle school drug and alco-
hol use. The numbers show
72 percent of high school
students and 42 percent
of middle school students
reported using drugs or al-
cohol. 24 percent of high
school and eight percent of
middle school students say
they have come to school
high or drunk. I'm telling


by the sheriff. I think we
would be remiss to say any-
one here would not actively
pursue drug dealers, but we
have to be smart how we use
those funds and target indi-
viduals that are bringing
it in. We must must target
the source," he said. "We got
around $65,000 to $75,000
in asset forfeitures for the
DFSPD last year. That is a
small drop of what is avail-
able. We have to take a
concise, intensive plan and
not just throw money at the
problem."
Cornman agreed and said
putting an officer in place
that is trained to track as-
sets of drug dealers will help
as well. "We need to take ev-
ery dime from the dealers
we can to get them off the
streets." A grant writer for
the sheriffs department was
also mentioned by Cornman,
"We need a grant writer to
get the federal grants and
funding that is offered to
law enforcement across the
country to help enforce drug
laws." Brown told the audi-
ence that his plan of accredi-
tation for the WCSO would
also help with grant funds
to pursue drug dealers.
Wise brought the idea of
using more informants and
road patrols would help cut
down on dealing in the area.
Macon said he agreed with
Wise, but had received a
lot of complaints from citi-
zens that they would call in
activity and never get a re-
sponse from the WCSO. "We
need to go out and check
these things out when some-
one calls and let them know
they, the public, are help-
ing."
One question involved
forming and training a "Cri-
sis Intervention Team." Ad-


Holmes County juvenile missing
Holmes County Sheriffs deputies and investigators are asking for
help from the public to locate an endangered runaway from Bonifay,
missing since June 14. A report from Holmes County says that Brittany
Nicole Phillips, 15, was last seen at her residence on C.R. 173, south of
Bonifay, in the early hours of the morning of June 14.
Brittany is a white female, with black hair and blue eyes, 5 feet 2
inches tall, 140 pounds. Investigators do not have a clothing description,
but Brittany "will likely have a black packpack in her possession."
Brittany's family asks the public to assist law enforcement officers
to locate her. Anyone with information should call the Holmes County
Sheriffs Office at (850) 547-4421.


"What I say to those that are working there now
is if you are doing your job now, you will still
have a job. If you are not doing your job, then you
need to be concerned. Treat people with respect,
train, do your job and you don't have to worry. "-
Tony Cornman


kinson said, "It's becoming
mandatory as it's tied into
federal dollars. Training our
officers to deal with citizens
who suffer mental illness
keeps everyone involved
safer and will become stan-
dard modern policing." Coo-
per and Cornman agreed.
Wise said, "That's a positive
today. I can't believe the
WCSO still doesn't have that
in place, but it will when I'm
sheriff." Macon agreed and
said it would be one of the
first improvements made to
the office.
The high cost of living
in the county was brought
forth and how would the
candidates handle pay in-
creases,. Adkinson spoke
up first, "Implement a step-
pay plan integrating train-
ing, experience and things
of that nature. You need to
stagger a cost of living ad-
justment and tie it in with
longevity and pay bands
and that way everyone can
see up front what they are
making and will make in
the future. That's how it's
done in modern professional
agencies across the country
-and that's the way we need
to do it here. It's also ex-
tremely cost-effective."
Cooper agreed with the
step pay plan but wants to
add merit increases, as well
as a career education plan,
so deputes will have a clear
view of what they need to
advance." Wise concurred
and said, "Right now, depu-
ties are not being paid for
their overtime. It a major
issue. I think if a deputy
works he should be paid for
every hour he works and not
through comp time." Corn-
* man took it a step further
and said, "I'd also like to
look at providing extra mer-
it incentive for deputies that
are nominated for awards
and.Aph, for thei~@xtra ef-
forts." Adkinson countered
and said he was not a par-
ticular fan of merit-based
raises and. said the biggest
problem with the pay struc-
ture now is they are on a
172-hour per 28-day cycle.
"That means deputies work
an extra 11 .hours each
month for which they are
not compensated. If we go
to a 40-hour work week, you
get paid for 40 hours."
Brown said, "It doesn't
really matter what type of
plan you use, if they work
over an hour, they get paid
that over time. Pure and
simple. We need to support
our officers."
Illegal immigration can
up as the next question.
Wise said it is not a local
law and deputies had no
rights to enforce those feder-
al laws, but if deputies were
deputized by U.S. Marshal's
office, then they would be
able to enforce those laws.
Cornman said he had no
issues with legal immigra-
tion, "I only have a problem
with those who come into
this country illegally. Most
have no drivers license or
insurance and are danger-,
ous to our legal drivers on
the road. I think we do have
the ability to enforce some
laws dealing with illegal
immigration and I will sup-
port enforcing those laws.
I would also push to make
those laws we can assist
with stricter, if possible."
The next three' questions
poised by the moderator
dealt with personnel chang-
es of a new administration,
employees living outside of
the county or state and re-
cent firings of deputies that

were pregnant.
Wise responded first,
'There would be no changes
to personnel to begin with.
Everyone's files would be re-
viewed to ensure they were
doing what they were hired
to do. I've been through a
lot of administrations that
when a new leader was
brought in, they turned into
absolute bloodbaths and 90
percent of the people that
were let go, were fired be-
cause they were loyal to the
prior sheriff and I think you
should give those people
time to become loyal to you.
You shouldn't be fired just
because you were loyal to
the last sheriff."
Adkinson countered, "I
am very cognizant that all
the deputies at the WCSO
have families and careers
to protect, but I do not be-
lieve their loyalty lies to the
sheriff. I believe their loy-
alty should lie to their ca-
reer and citizens of Walton
County. I believe that's part
of the problem, their loyalty
should not lie with the sher-
iff. That being said, it's the
leader's job to make sure
people are doing their job. I
agree with Dennis that time
should be taken to review
personnel, but a change at
the top of management may
need to be looked at to allow
everyone to perform their
job better. To say you're not
going to do it, I believe, is
out of touch with reality."
Cooper said, '"When any
new management takeover
personnel has to change,
management has to change
and focus and vision has to
change. That's not to say
that people have to change.
The sheriffs office is a busi-
ness and it works because of
the people there who are do-
ing their jobs. I don't think


that anyone is in touch
with reality if they say they
are going to step in and no
changes. You have to give
the employees a framework
to work in and if they sup-
port that vision, then they
can work within that frame-
work. A successful leader
will surround themselves
with people who know how
to do their job "
Macon said, "I will come
in with 21 years of military
and I understand leader-
ship. I will tell everyone
they will be evaluated every
six months. I want everyone
to have job security."
Brown said, "'Everyone
here has a basic idea of
what they want to do with
the position. I want to have
a customer-oriented office,
because for years and years,
our job is to protect and
serve. We need to be accessi-
ble and we need to get rid of
the 'good ole boy' system in
place now. I can attest to it
because I just resigned last
week. It is unreal what goes
on in that department. New
administration is needed to


PAGE 13-A
put this department back on
track. Cornman kept his
answer short and sweet, "I
was a deputy here for many
years and I was concerned
by that as a deputy, so, what
I say to those that are work-
ing there now is if you are
doing your job now, you will
still have a job. If you are
not doing your job, then you
need to be concerned. Treat
people with, respect, train,
do your job and you don't
have to worry. "
All candidates agreed
that morale would improve
with new leadership. They
agreed that if they took of-
fice as sheriff, patrol cars
would not be allowed to be
taken across state lines.
They would be parked at
substations. And when the
panel was asked whether
as sheriff, they would fire a
pregnant deputy they each
responded singularly "no"'
one by one, down the line.
The Walton County Pre-
vention Coalition and the
Herald-Breeze, sponsors of
this event, are discussing
another possible forum in
the future.


"I am very cognizant that all the deputies at the
WCSO have families and careers to protect, but
I do. not believe their loyalty lies to the sheriff. I
believe their loyalty should lie to their career and
citizens of Walton County. I believe that's part
of the problem, their loyalty should not lie with
the sheriff. That being said; it's the leader's job
to make sure people are doing their job."- Michael
Adkinson

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


Don Brown: unplugged


By BRUCE COLLIER

District 5 Representative
Don +Brown's term expires
in November, but barring a
special session, the legisla-
tor's work is over. Brown has
served four terms, first tak-
ing office in 2000 and win-
ning re-election every two
years since then. Like most
elected officials, Brown had
some ideas in mind when
he first took office. "There
was a broad class of issues I
wanted to pay attention to,"
he says.
A self-described "fiscal
conservative," Brown set
himself against raising tax-
es, and in favor of creating
a friendly atmosphere for
small businesses, "the back-
bone of Florida's economy."
Brown called the power to
over-tax "one of the most
sinister things a government
can do." Still more sinister,
he adds, is over-regulation,
"Because you cannot eas-
ily count the cost" of goods
and services driven up by
too much regulation. Brown
feels this is particularly im-
portant to northwest Flori-
da, a far less-populated area
made up of small counties.
Brown pointed to "plenty
of examples" of businesses
hampered by over-regula-
tion. He first cited the pro-
cess of pulling construction
permits, which he character-
ized as "just unbelievable,"
adding that "it's just human
nature to respond [to situa-
tions] with more control. It
makes us feel good." This is
symptomatic, he thinks, of
a lack of appreciation of a
capitalistic economy, and of
a lack of faith in the market.
"Markets tend to work."
Though an eight-year
veteran of the Florida Leg-
islature, Brown insists that
"the collective wisdom of
18 million people has to be
superior to any assembly of
experts from government."
Nevertheless, "incremen-
tally," Floridians have been
"reprogrammed" away from


faith in a free market. "I
wish we could expose young
people to the positive as-
pects of the free market. In-
crementally, we could go in
either direction."
One positive step in the
right direction, says Brown,
was Rep. Ray Sansom's bill,
passed two years ago, requir-
ing mandatory review and,
when warranted, sunsetting
of all state agencies every
seven years. The process,
operating perpetually on a
staggered schedule, gives at
least an opportunity to ask
questions about an agency's
existence.
Agencies and their hand-
maiden, administrative law,
are of particular interest
to Brown. "In the begin-
ning, a law was a law," he
says. "Now, the Legislature
passes policy, giving agen-
cies authority to implement
it. Such administrative laws
and regulations are "stacked
to the ceiling."
"The Legislature has
granted far too much law-
making authority to admin-
istrative agencies, which
are hard to reach" for citi-
zens, including members of
the businesses and profes-
sions regulated by them.
"The legislature has got-
ten a little lazy." This isn't
helped by the public's apa-
thy. "The more participation
we have, the better we are."
The public's apathy, on the
other hand, is reinforced br
its repeated disappointment
with public officials, and the
perception that "politicians
are crooks.'.' Brown says, "I
wanted to dispel that myth.
I wanted to retain my repu-
tation."
Recently, Brown's col-
leagues expressed their
doubt that Brown was a
"team player." Brown told
them, "I am a team player.
I'm on a different team, my
constituents." Brown re-
flected on the dwindling of
citizen legislators and the
increase of professional poli-
ticians, some of whom are


REP. DON BROWN recently visited the Herald office for
an "exit interview." (Photo by Bruce Collier)


"ideologically driven." This,
he says, is part of the prob-
lem in Florida.
Brown suggests that if
every member of the state's
Legislature was adminis-
tered "truth serum" and
"pressed to state what they
truly believe, they couldn't
tell you." This can be attrib-
uted to either ignorance, or
stupidity, he says.
As far as his own record,
Brown lists several accom-
* plishments of which he is
especially proud. First is the
"significant role" he played
in the reform of state Work-
ers Compensation, by which
rates have decreased 50 per-
cent since 2003.
Brown also sponsored the


repeal of joint and several li-
ability in 2006, a bit of tort
reform that placed Brown in
the company of "some of the
best lawyers in the state."
With joint and several lia-
bility, a tort defendant who
paid the full judgment to a
plaintiff could seek reim-
bursement from other par-
ties defendant who are at
fault. Brown also points with
satisfaction to "multiple op-
portunities to do things for
local communities," includ-
ing funding for important
projects.
There were disappoint-
ments as well. Having


been in the vanguard of
the charge for hurricane
insurance reform, Brown
says "it's hard to imagine
how anyone in northwest
Florida could have voted for
what was passed." Of Gov.
Charlie Crist's role, Brown
says, "The demagoguery on
the part of the governor was
absolutely incredible."
Brown admits that it is
easy to dislike insurance
companies, which can 'be
"arbitrary and impersonal,"
but adds that the real issue
was "misunderstood and
mismanaged." Florida's high
insurance rates are "the
symptom, not the problem."
The problem, he says, is
that 79 percent of the state's
total wind risk exposure
lies in the coastal counties,
and that other states "aren't
even close" to Florida in this
respect. Brown likes to re-
inforce this by noting that
Florida's total financial ex-
posure $2 trillion is equal
to the world's total amount
of venture capital. Though
the figures are unrelated,
Brown finds the compara-
tive amounts impressive and
staggering. He also attri-
butes the lack of true reform
to the "big storm" mentality


Amvets Post 178

that followed in the wake of
the catastrophic 2005 At-
lantic hurricane season, a
change from the previous
multiple-storm philosophy.
As long as coastal building
continues, the large number
will continue to subsidize
the small, he says.
Brown was also "disap-
pointed" that more progress
was not made in widening
U.S. 331. Though most of
the right-of-way has been
secured, and some widening
has taken place, the U.S.
331 bridge (Clyde B. Wells)
remains a significant im-
pediment. Environmental
concerns for the north-of-
Bay area remain, and cost
estimates for building a
bridge are "ridiculous."
For his successors in the
statehouse, Brown cautions
them not to be tempted to
raise taxes, and to focus
on controlling government
growth in the current eco-
nomic slowdown. "Pay at-
tention to your constitu-
ents...even at the risk of
being misunderstood."
For himself, Brown re-
cently took a vacation. A
life-long constituent has
also presented him with a
"honey do" list.

A day well spent at Pensacola's Naval Air Station


By JEFFREY POWELL
With Memorial Day
in the rear view mirror,
summer vacation time is of-
ficially upon us. Also upon
the potential traveler is the
daunting reality of $4 a gal-
lon gasoline. According to
national travel agency data
this fact will not stop people
from traveling but it will
mean they will not travel
as far from home. Fortu-
nately for those that live in
the Florida Panhandle there
are many interesting and

unique travel destinations
within reach. One of those
destinations is Pensacola's
Naval Air Station (NAS).
The site we now know as
the NAS dates to the 16th
century when Spanish ex-
plorer Don Tristan de Luna
founded a colony where
Fort Barrancas now stands.
One of the members of his
party commented that the
area presented "one of the
best natural harbors in the
world."
General Andrew Jackson


captured the Spanish fort in
the late 1800's and decided
to construct the Warrington
Navy Yard. To protect his
investment the U.S. Army,
with a force of 60 contracted
slaves, built Fort Barrancas
over the ruins of the Span-
ish fort and adjacent to the
old water battery. During
the Civil War Confederate
forces held the ground until
May, 186.2. Afterward the
fort remained in Federal
hands. Fort Pickens, located
on Santa. Rosa Sound, just

across the bay was never re-
linquished by United States
forces. Today the fort is
part of the National Park
service and can be visited
year round.
Another historical site
of interest on NAS is the
Pensacola Lighthouse. The
current structure replaced
a 1824 lighthouse that was
the first one built on the gulf
coast and second in Florida.
Built in 1857-58 the light-
house is still an active aid
to navigation. Its flashing
light shines at 20-second
intervals and is visible 27
miles out to sea. The light
stands 171 feet from the
ground to the focal plane,
and 191 feet from sea level
to the focal plane. Visitors
are unable to tour inside the
house currently but efforts
are underway to re-open the
structure.
While on the base one
cannot help but see rows
and rows of perfectly placed
white headstones. This is
Barrancas National Cem-
etery. Over 35,000 grave are
within the boundaries of the
100 acre cemetery. Military
members from all branches
now rest peacefully un-
der towering live oaks and
meticulously maintained
lawns. With the number of
military retirees living in
the area combined with the
fact that close to 1000 World
War Two veterans die each
day the panhandle is fortu-
nate to have such a facility.
As NAS is the cradle to
naval aviation it is only fit-
ting that there be a facility
to commemorate and recog-
nize this fact. The National
Museum of Naval Aviation
is nothing short of spectac-
ular. With close to 300,000
square feet of exhibition
space anyone interested in
aviation history will be mes-
merized. More than 150 air-
-craft of all sizes and shapes
are presented here. Visitors
to the museum can enjoy a
flight simulator, Imax films
and eat at the authentic
Cubi Bar Cafe. The cafe is a
replica of the Officers Club
at Cubi Point in the Philip-
pines. This is truly a world
class aviation museum.


Access to the bases at-
tractions is closely moni-
tored but visitors will have
no problem seeing the sites.
With fuel prices what they
are visitors will be happy
to know that all of the sites


listed are free to the public.
However, there is a fee to
view the IMAX.
Clearly visitors can spend
an interesting fun-filled day
at the NAS for a reasonable
price.

Cope Center offers training to law enforcement


By REID TUCKER

Law enforcement-officers
are often the first to arrive
on the scene of a crisis situa-
tion, and as such, need to be
prepared to deal with just
about anything, including a
mental health crisis.
In response to the need
for advanced training for
law enforcement, Cope Cen-
ter, Inc. currently offers a
special "Crisis Interven-
tion Team" program aimed
at providing police officers,
Sheriffs deputies, EMS and
other first responders with
the training they need to
disable or contain poten-
tially dangerous situations
arising from dealing with
people with mental-health
issues, as well as diverting
these individuals from the
traditional criminal justice
system.
According to the findings
of a study by the U.S. De-
partment of Justice, 16 per-
cent of the population in jails
or prisons at any given time
has a mental illness. This
number, roughly 700,000 of
the 10 million people incar-
cerated yearly in this coun-
try, stands in stark contrast
to the approximately five
percent of American adults
that have a serious mental
illness according to a recent
Report of the Surgeon Gen-
eral. The report also found
that 75 percent of these
inmates have co-occurring
substance abuse disorders.
Cope Center CIT coordi-
nator and Walton County
Jail liaison Rachelle Huf-
stedler said that, accord-


ing to a 1992 survey, fewer
than five percent of jails na-
tionwide had procedures in
place to divert mentally ill
inmates from the criminal
justice system. This creates
a strain on the system, she
said, as law enforcement of-
ficers and others that deal
with penalized individuals
aren't often properly trained
to handle the unique de-
mands .of those with mental
illness or substance abuse
issues.
"A person with a mental
illness doesn't need punish-
ment, they need help," Huf-
stedler said.
The reasons for diverting
inmates with mental health
issues from the justice sys-
tem in favor of treatment fa-
cilities are numerous, Huf-
stedler said, but the main
benefits are increased safe-
ty for law enforcement of-
ficers, inmates with mental
illnesses, communities as
a whole and good financial
sense. CIT-trained officers
have been shown to allevi-
ate the strain on the justice
system by rehabilitating
"consumers," or those who
seek mental health services,
rather than simply confining
them in the penal system.
Further, medication for in-
mates can be expensive and
treatment is cheaper than
incarceration in most cases,
as the cost is less to taxpay-
ers, she said.
Law enforcement officers
who participate in the free
training program learn how
to recognize the signs and
symptoms of mental illness
and substance abuse, how to


de-escalate a mental illness
crisis situation and how to
determine the difference be-
tween medical issues such
as advanced Alzheimer's
disease, dementia or stroke,
mental illness and regular
aging. Also, because law en-
forcement officers are legal-
ly able to place people un-
der the control of the Baker
and Marchman Acts, laws
that allow people to be in-
voluntarily submitted for a
mental health or substance
abuse evaluation, officers
who undergo CIT training
are better able to execute
their duties, said Cope Cen-
ter Special Projects Coordi-
nator Charity Hodges.
"People with serious men-
tal illness can be a danger to
themselves and others, and
CIT-trained first responders
are better-prepared than
others to help these people
because they better under-
stand when they [people
with mental illnesses] meet
the criteria for the Baker
Act or the Marchman Act,"
Hodges said.
The CIT program out-
line is broken down into
five, one-day parts, with
the first explaining the ba-
sics of identifying mental
illness, an overview of com-
monly abused medications
and how best to adapt these
strategies to rural communi-
ties. Over the course of the
program, law enforcement
officers hear from a panel
of now-stable mental health
patients and their families,
along with mental health
professionals who give of-
ficers a better understand-


ing of what mental'illness
is like on a personal level.
The training concludes with
role playing exercises and
scenario-based training
(called "virtual hallucina-
tions") wherein officers use
virtual reality equipment to
see strange, often disturb-
ing images and hear voices
in their normal surround-
ings, simulating the effects
of schizophrenia.
"A virtual hallucination
puts the officer in the shoes
of someone with schizophre-
nia or similar mental disor-
ders," Hodges said. "They
recognize how hard it is to
suffer from a mental illness
when they're done. Empathy
for those with mental health
problems is an important
part of understanding how
to help them. CIT isn't just
training, it changes mind-
sets."
The Cope Center is in a
unique position to train first
responders thanks to the
nearly 5000 Walton County
residents it reaches through
its various services, or
roughly 10 percent of the to-
tal population, Hodges said.
As community involvement
is one of the cornerstones
of the CIT program, speed-
ing up patient recover and
helping with re-integration
after treatment, Cope of-
ficials are pushing for all
law enforcement officers in
Walton County to take the
40 hour course for nearly
five years."It's a community-
wide effort to get something
like CIT off the ground,"
Hodges said. "Everyone has
to be online or this just won't


* work."
As it stands, Walton
County is alone among Es-
acambia, Santa Rosa and
Okaloosa Counties, in that
it hasn't formally adopted
the CIT program as part of
its law enforcement training
regimen. Capt. Eddie Farris
said that when the Sheriffs
Office was first contacted
about taking part in the
program, it was initially in-
terested, but problems arose
with finding enough person-
nel to fill all the available'
shifts. The Sheriffs Office's
priority was, at that time,
ensuring that there weren't
any "gaps in road coverage,"
Farris said, and adoption
of CIT training was tempo-
rarily put on hold, though
he said the Sheriffs Office
hasn't ruled out participa-
tion in the program' in the
future.
"You were looking at pull-
ing people [deputies] off of
the road to take this train-
ing," Farris said. "Given
the time to get all the shifts
filled, to make sure we aren't
short-handed, we'd like to
get involved with the train-
ing program. It's a good pro-
gram, and hopefully it won't
be long before we're able to
get involved."
Even though CIT train-
ing hasn't been formally ad-
opted by the sheriffs office,
some county employees have
taken the training course
on their own time and have
seen firsthand its benefits
in their work with inmates.
A correctional officer at the
Walton County Jail, Anna
D. Staten said she gained a


new perspective on mental
illness thanks to CIT train-
ing, and that the informa-
tion she received is some-
thing simply not normally
taught to officers and conse-
quently not understood.
"If you don't know how
to deal with those kinds of
inmates [those with men-
tal health problems] you'll
get yourself iAto a mess,"
Staten said. "Over half of
the 190 inmates we have at
the county jail were directly
or indirectly involved with
substance abuse or haye a
mental illness of some kind,
and unless you [an officer]
have special training you
just don't know how to han-
dle them."
Staten said that when in-
mates with chemical addic-
tions to psychotropic drugs
come off of the drugs' effect,
they become especially dif-
ficult to manage, often be-
coming paranoid or refusing
to take their medication,
which would have had little
previous effect anyway, due
to the presence of mind-
altering substances in their
bodies. When these inmates
refuse to take their treat-
ment, -the situation goes
from bad to worse, making
the jobs of corrections of-
ficers even more difficult.
If more officers underwent
CIT training, they would
either be able to help these
inmates better, or preemp-
tively divert them from the
criminal justice system.
"The bottom line is, if any
officer hasn't had this train-
ing, they need- it," Staten
said.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008

Ask

Auntie Em
Dear Auntie Em,
I am turning to an advice column because I am embarrassed to ask anyone else
for help. You see, I am a mother with two teenage kids and I am going through a
really rough time financially. My ex-husband walked out and left me with a ton of
credit card debt, a car payment and a mortgage. The bill collectors won't stop calling
and I just received notice one is suing me.
I work full time but can't seem to catch up. I can't borrow anymore from friends
and family. I'm afraid of losing the only home my kids have ever known and I don't
know if I will ever be able to pay everyone off at my salary. I am beginning to feel
utterly hopeless.
Broke in Baker
(Name and address withheld on request)
Dear Broke,
Financial hardship rates right up there on the stress scale with death of a loved
one and divorce, so it's no wonder things might look like they are bleak at the mo-
ment.
I would suggest a free consult with a bankruptcy lawyer. Many provide them to
let you know if you are eligible for protection from creditors. With the use of cred-
it cards and the mortgage crisis, bankruptcy rates continue to skyrocket because
many are in the same boat as you. But it is a law made to protect people who need
a fresh start or need help in paying off creditors.
Bankruptcy should always be considered a last resort after you have exhausted
all other avenues, but it may help you to keep your home and a car, so you can dig
yourself out of a financial hole. Many associate a social stigma with bankruptcy,
but many famous people have found themselves in your boat, such as Mark Twain,
Larry King, Burt Reynolds and the list goes on.
Also, if you do file, you will need to learn how not to get overcome with debt
again. You may need to become more educated on how to handle money and will be
required to take a class about consurher debt, pre and post.filing.
Do the research, speak with an attorney for free and then make your decision.
Good luck and God bless.
Auntie Em

MOVIE REVIEW

Cut hair, will travel: "You Don't Mess with the Zohan"


By BRUCE COLLIER
Dennis Dugan's "You
Don't Mess with the Zohan"
is a textbook example of a
star-vehicle film. In this
case, the star is America's
favorite 40-something frat
boy, Adam Sandler. Sandler
is in the enviable position of
being able to make pretty
much any film he wants to
make. He has zig-zagged
between more serious fare
like "Reign Over Me" and
"Punch Drunk Love,"
likable romantic comedy
like "The Wedding Singer,"
and outright fast-buck
garbage like "Little Nicky."
His films make money, and
so he gets to make more of
them.
Upfront, I admit I like
Adam Sandler, mostly. His
"Saturday Night Live"
characters Opera Man,
Cajun Man, and so on,
make me laugh helplessly,
for reasons I can't explain,
probably because I don't
know them. "Wedding
Singer" was one of the first
movies to exploit the comic
possibilities of the 1980s,
and showed Sandler could


be funny, nice, and romantic
without going nuts. Not to
say that Sandler going nuts
isn't funny.
In "Zohan," Sandler gets
a chance to play a sort of
Jewish 007 named "The
Zohan." Zohan is a crack
Mossad agent, a master
counterterrorist, and of
course, a devil with the
ladies. Tan, buff, ever-calm,
and capable of literally
leaping tall buildings with a
single bound, Zohan never
fails. However, he just isn't
happy in his work. In
addition to being burned out
from the never-ending cycle
of Israeli-Palestinian
conflict, Zohan suffers from
an unfulfilled ambition. He
ends his strenuous work
days poring longingly over a
(vintage 1987) book of Paul
Mitchell photos. Zohan
aspires to cut and style
women's hair. "I want to
make them silky smooth,"
he says. A confrontation
with his Palestinian
nemesis Phantom (played
by John Turturro) allows
Zohan to fake his own
death. Stowing away on a


jet to New York, Zohan
reinvents himself as
Scrappy Coco, trimming his
hair and beard a la '80s,
emerging at JFK airport
ready to take New York by
storm.
New York isn't
interested. Zohan's look and
"disco-disco" manner gets
him laughed out of Paul
Mitchell's studio. A chance
encounter on the street
earns him the friendship of
a New York family, and
ultimately a probationary
gig at a struggling beauty
salon owned by a gorgeous
Palestinian woman, Dalia
(Emmanuelle Chriqui).
The salon is located in a
mixed neighborhood, where
immigrant New Yorkers
from Israel and Palestine do
business and generally
mingle in harmony. The
biggest arguments are over
sports and whether Laura
Bush is hotter than Hillary
Clinton. What unites them
is their distaste for the
violence in the old country,
their zeal to succeed in the
land of opportunity, and


their love of hummus. The
latter is the subject of end-
to-end visual jokes. You'd
never think that a paste of
chickpeas, sesame and olive
oil could have so many
applications, some
miraculous, others just
gross.
The humor mostly
sexual is pretty crude and
blunt. Zohan succeeds as a
stylist by offering middle-
aged and elderly women a
wash, cut, style, and a
whole lot more, carrying
"full-service" to its illogical
extreme. I saw the movie at
a matinee, and a family of
four mom, dad, two pre-
teens got up and left.
There's violence, mainly
cartoonish, with Zohan out-
swimming speedboats and
catching bullets and bombs
in his hands. The usually
serious Turturro follows
Sander right over the top
as the Phantom, another
super-agent with a modest
dream of his own (I won't
give it away).
The funniest moments,
for me, come when the


characters address the
"delicate" issues of modern
terrorism and Middle
Eastern politics in various
un-PC ways. Stereotypes of
both Israelis and
Palestinians are upended,
but also thrown squarely in
your face. "People hate us,"
a Palestinian tells an
Israeli. "They hate us, too,"
says the Israeli. "Why?"
asks the Palestinian.
"Because we look like you,"
says the Israeli. Another
Palestinian tells a
countryman, "No offense,
but if you sat beside me on
an airplane, I'd be afraid."
Another funny moment
comes when Palestinian
cabbie Salim (Rob
Schneider) takes a fare
while simultaneously
working as a Spiegel catalog
telemarketer. You may find
his voice strangely familiar.
Predictably, "'Zohan"
makes a sort of point, the
kind Frank Capra was fond
of making, about America
the melting pot and the
brotherhood of man. It's a
reasonable point to make,
though you might be


surprised at some of the
jokes, such as a Hezbollah
hotline ("....press 4 for
terrorist supplies."), and
may find they come too soon
for comfort. Not that
comedy has ever been about
comfort.
Sandler is in good form
here, with a cool Israeli
drawl and loads of grace
under pressure. Turturro is
obviously enjoying himself,
and Lainie Kazan puts a
new spin on her Jewish
mother image. Chris Rock,
Kevin James, Henry
Winkler, John McEnroe and
Mariah Carey all get
cameos. It was fun to see
veteran comedian Shelley
Berman as Zohan's dad,
whose main concern over
his son's career change is
that the boy might be gay.
If you don't like Adam
Sandler, you won't like
"Zohan." It's that simple. If
you aren't sure, check out a
few DVDs like "Billy
Madison" and "Happy
Gilmore" first, before you
invest the time, ticket price,
and most important, gas
money.

"Its Because of You"

If I am strong, it's be-
cause you have shown me
how to handle problems
without being overwhelmed
by them. If I am gentle, it's
because you held me close
just like a grandmother
was supposed to do. When I
was sad you quietly waited
with me while life leveled
out. If I have a sense of hu-
mor, it's because you taught
me to laugh and keep life's
challenges in perspective. If
I am independent and com-
petent, it's because grand-
mother you let me know
it was all right to have my
own thoughts and make my
own choices. If I am com-
passionate, it's because you
showed me the importance
of caring about people rath-
er than possessions. If am
loving and passionate, it's
because you have shown
me your love through all
the ups and downs of grow-
ing up and going away. I
will never forget that the
best part of me was from
you. We love you!

Paul and his wife Eliza-
beth have been in itiner-
ant ministry to the Body of
Christ for nearly 40 years.
Traveling extensively in the
United States and around
the world impacting lives
with the power of Holy Spir-
it anointed ministry.
Paul is used extraordi-
narily in Prophetic ministry,
using God's gift to at times
reveal intimate details of in-
dividual's lives and myster-
ies of the heart in order to
impart God's love and pur-
pose for their destiny.
It is not unusual to see


people in his meetings vis-
ibly touched by his prophet-
ic insight into their hearts
and lives.
You will see first hand
the scripture come to life in
ICor 14:25 "the secrets of
his heart are disclosed; and
so he will fall on his face
and worship God, declaring
that God is certainly among
you."
Paul and his wife are
wonderfully humble and
unassuming servants of
Christ whose main goal in
life and ministry is to la-
bor to see people changed


by the love of Christ, the
simple Gospel message, and
the gifting and anointing of
God's Spirit.
If you have never person-
ally witnessed a present day
anointed prophet of God,
then come and see for your-
self what a man looks like
when he is consumed by a
love for Jesus and empow-
ered by the Holy Spirit.
If you have seen psychics
on TV then you have wit-
nessed a counterfeit of the
real God given gift revealed
in the Scripture. Don't be
misled by a false prophet or


a counterfeit gift when you
can witness for yourself the
real thing.
The fruit of Paul's min-
istry is seeing people saved,
healed, delivered, and expe-
riencing a new passion and
love in their heart for Jesus
Christ.
Paul has been referred to
as one of the most accurate
prophets of his day..

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


Sports news and notes


By PATRICK CASEY
Marianna saw another
of its high school basketball
players sign a scholarship
as Derrian Bell inked a deal
with Chipola Junior College
to play basketball at the
school this fall. Bell was the
starting point guard for the,
Bulldogs for the last three
seasons, helping the team
reach the 3A state semifi-
nals in his senior season.

Walter Dix won his third
consecutive 200-meter title
and led the Florida State
Seminoles to their third
straight men's team crown
Saturday at the NCAA track
and field championships.
Florida State finished with
52 points. LSU and Auburn
tied for second with 44.
The LSU women edged
defending champion Ari-
zona State for the women's
track and field champion-
ship, a race that came down
to the meet's final event,
the 1,600-meter relay. LSU
won its 25th women's track
title, 14th outdoors, but its


first since Dennis Shaver
replaced Pat Henry as coach
in 2005.
Chipley High graduate
and outfielder Zach Jadof-
sky has signed to play base-
ball at Enterprise-Ozark
Community College in En-
terprise, AL. Jadofsky hit
.414, had six doubles, one
home run, and 12 RBIs.
Melvin Ray told Universi-
ty of Alabama head football
coach Nick Saban last week
that he will forgo the ath-
letic scholarship the Crim-
son Tide offered the former
Tallahassee North Florida
Christian Eagles wide re-
ceiver to pursue a pro base-
ball career. Ray, who faced
off against Walton in foot-
ball in 2006 when he played
at Tallahassee Chiles, was
drafted by the Los Angeles
Dodgers in the 33rd round
and appears headed to a
baseball career.
Wewahitchka graduate
Brandon Jones was called
up to the Atlanta Braves
last week. Jones, an out-
fielder who recently was


with Triple-A Richmond,
replaced Josh Anderson on
the roster. The swap of play-
ers was a surprise to Ander-
son, who was batting .318
with two RBIs and two sto-
len bases in 11 games. Jones
signed with the Braves out
of Tallahassee Community
College in 2004. He had his
best season in the minors
last season, when he had 15
homers, 74 RBIs and 12 sto-
len bases at Double-A Mis-
sissippi.

Louisiana Tech head
coach Derek Dooley has
announced that former
Southern Miss quarterback
Randy Hardin has signed a
financial aid agreement and
will enroll in school this fall.
Hardin, who signed with
the Golden Eagles last year
and redshirted in 2007, will
sit out this season and then
have three years of eligibil-
ity remaining. 'The 6-foot,
195-pound Hardin played
for The Bolles School in
Jacksonville where he reg-
istered a stellar senior sea-


son, passing for 3,257 yards
and 32 touchdowns while
only throwing three inter-
ceptions. He led his team to
a perfect 14-0 mark and the
Florida Class 2A state title
as a senior while earning
first team all-state and all-
district honors. Following
his senior season, he was
named the Florida Dairy
Farmer's Class 2A Player of
the Year, Offensive Player
of the Year by the Times
Union, a Super 24 selec-
tion, and was named the
Class 2A State Player of the
Year. Hardin, who played as
a freshman and sophomore
at Panama City Rutherford
High School, registered ca-
reer high school totals of
7,463 yards passing and
76 touchdowns with only
18 interceptions. He was a
three-star recruit by Super-
Prep.com coming out of high
school and ranked as the
72nd best quarterback by
Scout.com and the 85th best
quarterback by ESPN.com.
His father, Steve, played
football at Florida State and


his brother, Matt, played
quarterback at Jacksonville
State University.

The World Sports Hu-
manitarian Hall of Fame
will be inducting Warrick
Dunn on June 24 in Boise,
Idaho. The organization
honors three athletes an-
nually for exceptional com-
munity service work. War-
rick Dunn Foundation and
Homes for the Holidays
was one of the units chosen.
Charlie Ward was a recipi-
ent of their Tradition of Ex-
cellence award this last win-
ter. Warrick will join Vlade
Divac (NBA) and Jimmie
Heuga (US Olympic Skiing
/ 1964) in this year's class.
Other NFL players to have
been honored by this orga-
nization are: Drew Bledsoe,
Mel Blount, Warrick Dunn,
Tom Landry, Steve Largent,
and Steve Young.
Though I like college
baseball, it is obvious that a
lot of the most talented play-
ers are already in the minor
or major leagues playing


professional baseball, good
pitchers especially. The
game is fun to watch, but
the "clink" of the bats just
doesn't sound right and the
high-scoring games get te-
dious. College football still
gets the best players, with
basketball next, and base-
ball in third place in college
athletics. The pro leagues
keep college baseball 'from
having a lot of the best 18-to-
22-year old players with the
NBA stealing college bas-
ketball's best as soon as they
turn 19. College football still
gets the best athletes, and is
the most competitive, as no
one goes from high school to
the NFL Draft. It is a shame
we can't have a 16-team
football playoff to end the
college football season. That
would elevate college foot-
ball far beyond the other
two, though it already has
the lead by a solid distance.

The Dodge Sunshine Cup
All-Sports Awards are pre-
sented by Dodge and Your
Florida Dodge Dealers, the
official vehicle of the Florida
High School Athletic Asso-
ciation.

For the 2007-08 school
year, the 650 member senior
high schools have been di-
vided into six classifications
for administrative purposes
based on the enrollments
submitted to the FHSAA
Office in October 2004,
which were used to discern
the classifications as they
are drawn up now. In ac-


cordance with a Board man-
date at its November 2002
meeting, Classes 1A, 2A and
3A are further subdivided
into public and private cat-
egories. An all-sports award
will be presented in each
of these nine categories in
overall, girls and boys divi-
sions at the conclusion of
the 2007-08 school year.
Points are awarded a
school based on its finish in
FHSAA State Series com-
petition in each sport in the
classification in which it has
been assigned to compete.
The top 16 places are scored.
In bracket sports, points are
awarded as follows: 100 for
the state champion, 90 for
the state runner-up, 83 for
the state semifinalists, 60
for 5-8th places, and 25 for
9-16th places. In non-brack-
et sports, points are award-
ed as follows: 100, 90, 85, 80,
70, 63, 56, 49, 38, 34, 30, 26,
22, 18, 14, 10. Schools get a
5-point bonus for winning
a district or regional cham-
pionship, and points are
deducted for unsportsman-
like conduct: 0.5 points for
student-athlete ejection/un-
sportsmanlike conduct inci-
dent; 1.0 for student-athlete
gross unsportsmanlike con-
duct incident; 2.0 for 'coach
ejection/unsportsmanlike
conduct incident, plus addi-
tion 0.5 points deducted for
each $50 amount above ini-
tial fine; and approximately
3-5 additional points de-
ducted for a school or team-
based violation (e.g., bench-
clearing brawl, coaches take
team off the field, etc.).
When two or more schools
are tied for a particular
place in a sport, the points
allotted for those places
are shared equally by the
schools that are tied. In the
event of a tie for the award
in either the overall, girls or
boys divisions at the end of
the school year, the following
tiebreakers will be used: (1)
number of state team cham-
pionships won; (2) number
of state team runners-up
finishes; .(3) number of re-
gional team championships
won; (4) number of regional
team runners-up finishes;
(5) number of district team
championships won; and
(6) number of district team
runners-up finishes.
Winners will be honored
in their communities by lo-
cal Dodge dealers during
the 2008-09 school year.
Here are the top 10 teams
in the overall standings, as
well as girls program and
boys program standings:

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008

Earnhardt finally tastes victory


By CHUCK HINSON
After not seeing


By CHUCK HINSON
It was a beautiful day
in Rosenblatt Stadium in
Omaha, NE, the No. 4 seed-
ed Seminoles were poised to
once again show their offen-
sive strength against their
opponent, and once again
show why they averaged 10
runs a game in the regular
season and 11 points a game
in the College World Series
games.
But the winds Saturday
did not blow the Seminoles'
way and they got their worst
loss for a college team in the
series since Cal State Ful-
lerton scored 11 times in the
first inning against LSU in
the 1994 series.
Stanford kept the Semi-
noles at a distance until the
bottom of the fifth inning
when Florida State gained
control of the game and took
the lead. It looked like it was
all just a matter of time be-
fore the Seminoles regained
their composure to win an-
other game to advance on in
the series.


By CHUCK HINSON
Despite the Seminoles
having to come to the real-
ization that their hopes for
a baseball national champi-
onship had come to a close,
there was something to cel-
ebrate on Saturday. Team
mate and pitcher, Buster
Posey was presented with
the Dick Howser Trophy, is
presented to to the nation's


checkered flag in his favor
the in the last 76 races, Dale


But Stanford and Cardi-
nal's head coach Mark Mar-
quess had other plans.
In the top of the ninth,
Stanford would have been
satisfied with just coming
back and beating the Semi-
noles by a point. Instead
they exploded on the field,
shut down the Seminoles
defense and racked up an
amazing 11 points to finish
the Noles off with a 16-5 vic-
tory.
Brent Milleville's three-
run homer highlighted Stan-
ford's biggest inning of the
year and the biggest in Col-
lege World Series since the
Cal Fullerton-LSU game in
94. Stanford (40-22-2) did
not allow FSU more than
seven runs throughout the
entire game which had not
been done since there re-
gional opener in Tallahas-
see against Bucknell back
on May 30.
Florida State has been to
the CWS 19 times, but has
never taken home the "big
prize."


top baseball player for the
year.
Posey led the Seminoles
by hitting an NCAA-leading
.460. His 26 home runs were
tied for the best nationally
and he topped the RBI list
with 92 for his career.
He was a first-team All
American and was recently
drafted fifth overall by the
San Francisco Giants.


Earnhardt Jr. got his big
break when he opted on re-
fueling, and crossed the fin-
ish line to win the Lifelock
400 on Sunday at Michigan
International Speedway.
Fans were happier for
themselves and all the mer-
chandise they had bought of
their hero, than they were
about Earnhardt getting
his first win in 76 attempts.
They did everything but hit
the track when he crossed
the finish line.
The most popular driver
in NASCAR won this race
by gambling on whether or
not he should stop for fuel.
Instead he continued on for
the next 55 laps on the two-
mile oval, including three
laps of overtime, without
refueling and then winning
the race.
Earnhardt gave much
credit to his crew chief Tony
Eury Jr. for guiding him in
and keeping him under a
certain speed to conserve
fuel after he decided to keep


racing and not refuel. Earn-
hardt and Eury watched as
one by one, drivers had to
stop to refuel and the pres-
sure mounted for the Earn-
hardt team to do the same.
Knowing that the race
would be extended beyond
the 200 laps because of the
numerous caution flags,
Eury told his driver to shut
the engine off whenever he
could and just coast around
the track during the caution
laps. Earnhardt did just
that, even one time passing
the pace car and Eury was
given a warning by officials
to cut it out.
The green flag came out
on lap 202 and Earnhardt
raced away for two more
laps to capture his first vic-
tory at Michigan and his
18th career win.
Kasey Kahne crossed the
line in second, Matt Kenseth
finished third, Brian Vickers
got fourth and Tony Stewart
wrapped up the top five.

Ex-referee said 2002 series fixed


By CHUCK HINSON
Some thought he was just
a disgruntled referee who
had been let go from calling
the games for the NBA. But,
Tim Donaghy said that he
was involved in a scandal in


2002 with the NBA to force
seven games to be played,
due to him and other refer-
ees calling plays that forced
the series to seven game.

Presently caught in the


middle of a gambling scan-
dal, Donaghy claimed the
NBA routinely encouraged
refs to ring up bogus fouls to
manipulate results, but dis-
couraged them from calling
technical fouls on key, star


players, due to ratings and
fan base.

The allegations were in
a letter filed by Donaghy's
lawyer 'last Tuesday, after
he plead guilty last year to


felony charges alleging he
took cash payoffs from gam-
blers and bet on the games
himself. Donaghy faces up
to 33 months in prison when
sentenced on July 14.
The league called his ac-


cusations self-serving and
false, but has many in the
professional basketball
circle watching the play-offs
this year that are now in full
swing, a little closer.


Here comes the blame game


By CHUCK HINSON
After winning two of the
three top horse races, you
would think that owners
and trainers of Big Brown,
would be content. But now
it is time for fingerpointing
and name-calling by two


members of the same horse-
racing team.

Trainer Rick Dutrow Jr.
is hot on the trail blaming
jockey Kent Desormeaux for
Big Brown's stunning and
embarrassing loss earlier


this month at the Belmont
Stakes. The horse, who had
already won the Kentucky
Derby and the Preakness,
was a sure-fire winner and
would have been the first
horse in 30 years to win the
Triple Crown, stammered in


at last place during the run-
ning of the Belmont Stakes.
Despite Big Brown not
winning the Triple Crown,
Dutrow said he did not want
to change riders since he
won the first two races. Like
him or not, the decision lies


with co-owner Michael la-
varone.
Desormeaux said that af-
ter he had worn the beaten
horse down in the first two
races, Big Brown just did
not have anything left in
him to finish the race, let


alone, come in first place.
Dutrow has examined the
horse several times and has
found that there is nothing
physically wrong, but did
agree that he had just been
tested too much to be able to
win the Triple Crown.

FMS' Family fun nights

wins state award


Freeport Middle School
has been selected as a PTA
Parent Involvement Re-
gional Award Winner for
shaping education reform
through Family Fun Night

guilty as



charged


By JEFFREY POWELL
"I plan to appeal today's
verdict," said suspended
South Walton County Mos-
quito Control District (SWC-
MCD) Commissioner Grego-
ry Charles (Charlie) Burke.
"This decision did not follow
the rule of the law."
Burke's comments came


on June 11, shortly after a
jury of his peers found him
guilty of false swearing to
any oath or false certifica-
tion of nomination and sub-
mission of false voter regis-
tration information.

Rescinding of


Driftwood plat to


be considered


By DOTTY NIST
Early next month the of-
ficial rescinding of a new
phase of the Driftwood Es-
tates subdivision will be
considered.
On June 10, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
to hold a public hearing to
consider this action, which
would affect Phase IIC, a
yet-unbuilt interior portion
of this horseshoe-shaped
Mack Bayou-area subdivi-
sion.
The vote followed testi-
mony by residents of exist-
ing phases of the subdivision
that, due to inadequacy of
stormwater drainage, mail-
boxes are falling over and
roadways are on the brink of
failure. Complaints like this
are not new but have been
voiced over a number of
years as new interior phases
of the subdivision have un-


dergone development.
Walton County suspend-
ed the issuance of building
permits for Driftwood Es-
tates Phases IIB and IIC in
late 2007, after a represen-
tative of the planning de-
partment told commission-
ers that final infrastructure
for those phases had never
been certified by the county.
It was explained that the de-
veloper had never requested
a final inspection to verify
whether stormwater drain-
age infrastructure was com-
plete and constructed per
plans. No building permits
for either phase have been
issued since that time.
"You need to remove the
plat," Alan Osborne, spokes-
man for 172 existing hom-
eowners in the subdivision,
told the commissioners on
June 10.

Commissioners: a deal's


a deal with stories


By DOTTY NIST
Property owners have
been directed to remove sto-
ries from two western Inlet
Beach homes that were built
taller than 2003 approval by
the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) had specified.
At the June 10 BCC meet-
ing, vesting was considered
to allow three- and four-
story homes, substantially
complete on Lot 2 and Lot 12
in the Villas at Inlet Beach
subdivision, to remain in
place. Also considered was
vesting to allow four-story
homes to be built on lots 1, 3
and 4 of the subdivision ac-
cording to plans associated
with county-approved build-
ing permits. The beachfront
subdivision is located on
Winston Lane just east of
Rosemary Beach.
Lois LaSeur, county plan-
ning manager, explained
that, in exchange for reduced
buffers, developer T. Henry
& Associates had agreed to
limit construction height on


homes in the Villas at In-
let Beach to two habitable
floors plus parking. These
"specific limitations" were
included in the development
order, she added. Now, she
continued, one home had
been completed with three
floors plus parking and an-
other with four floors plus
parking.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, comment-
ed that, although height
was "absolutely meant" to
be limited to two habitable
floors on the project, confu-
sion occurred when over-
sight progressed from the
planning department to the
building department. On
the one-page form the build-
ing department was using at
the time, maximum height
for the buildings was listed
as "four stories," she noted.
Four habitable stories or
50 feet is the current maxi-
mum height for new con-
struction countywide.
Blackshear added that


there had been no review
by a county planner of fi-
nal plans for the homes.
She said procedures have
since been corrected and
that planners and building
department staff review
final plans together. She
explained that the specific
limitations on the Villas at
Inlet Beach may not have
been conveyed down the
line to contractors and oth-
ers working. on the project.
The county had not issued
certificates of occupancy for
either of the homes.
Inlet Beach residents and
property owners had been
shocked to see buildings in
the subdivision rise sub-
stantially above the rest of
the community as construc-
tion progressed.
A number of years ago,
residents of the community
had created and obtained
approval of a neighborhood
plan that set the maximum
height for non-apartment
See DEAL 13-C

TWO HOMES were completed in The Villas at Inlet Beach subdivision one and two
stories higher, respectively, than approved in the project's development order. County com-
missioners voted last week that the situation must be remedied.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


SHOOTING THE BREEZE withLeahStratmann


The 2008 race to the
White House has certainly
been an interesting one so
far. No matter which politi-
cal persuasion you may be, I
think we can all agree presi-
dential campaigns are too
long and far too expensive.
The amount of money spent
on these primary campaigns
could have gone a long way
to solving some of the do-
mestic problems we face.
Furthermore, many of
the candidates abandoned
the jobs they were hired to
do by the electorate to run
the campaigns. I find this
offensive. Few Americans
can take 15 months off from
their jobs and still be hand-
somely paid while pursuing
other interests. For this rea-
son and for the incredible
cost of getting elected, cam-
paign reform is long overdue
and none .of the candidates
appear willing to lead the
charge to change it.
Other countries enjoying
a form of populist govern-
ment limit the campaign
time of candidates. This
means the candidates have
to get messages out quickly
and succinctly. Canada does
not seem to be suffering from
fools in office and I think


campaign
time there
is limited to
something
like two
months. It
seems quite
sensible to
me.
Rather ,
than costly
primaries in .
every state,
nationwide
primary y
would allow
all people
to vote. In many states, in-
cluding Florida, one has to
be registered as being with
one party or another to cast
a primary ballot. This is un-
palatable to those of us who
do not wish to be aligned
with any political party, and
effectively blocks us from
choosing candidates; which
isn't very democratic and
should not be allowed to
continue.
Oh yes, I know I could
swap my affiliation from
race to race, as many do, but
no one should have to play
those games in order to take
part in- a constitutionally
mandated election. In my
entire life, I've never regis-

tered as a
member of a
political par-
ty and I'm
not about to
start now,
when there
isn't a dime's
,o worth of dif-
ference be-
the high tween the
a two major
parties. At
one time,
there was a
great divide,
but no lon-
ger.
I'm proud the American
public has seen fit to elevate
a man of color to run for
the highest post in the land
and that a woman reached
such a milestone in Ameri-
can politics. If Hillary's last
name had not been Clinton,
I think she might well have
won the nomination; but the
name, and the woman, sim-
ply carried too much bag-
gage for many.
Much has been made of
Barack Obama's lack of ex-
perience, but that is precise-
ly what I think a lot of peo-
ple find appealing. He hasn't
been in politics long enough
to be totally corrupted and


by and large his campaign
was funded by real people,
not political interest groups.
The same cannot be said of
Ms. Clinton or Mr. McCain.
Obama's lack of experi-
ence shouldn't stop anybody
from casting a vote his way
if they like his message.
Our current president had a
spotty record at best as the
governor of a large state,
and an even spottier track
record in business plus
absolutely no experience
in international matters -
and the public elected him
twice.
I'm hopeful this election
year will see an end to the
nastiness of presidential
elections of the past. Nega-
tive ads and dirty campaign
tactics demean the candi-
dates and at this point in the
history of this country, we
need to show we are above
such things. Americans are
not held in high regard in
many other countries and
now would be the time to
show them we can conduct
a dignified contest for the
presidency. As Americans,
we should demand it. As
voters, we deserve it.

Planning Commissioners look at festival ordinance


By LEAH STRATMANN
Although the agenda of
the Planning Commission
meeting last week was rela-
tively short, the first legisla-
tive agenda item generated
a lot of commentary.
County planners were
asked to update and amend
a festival and special event
ordinance, which has re-
mained the same since
1973. County Planning and
Development Services Di-
rector Pat Blackshear noted
the ordinance was drafted at
that time in the hope of pre-
venting any type of Wood-
stock event from occurring
in Walton County.
"This ordinance has been
on the books since 1973
and is way of date with the
goal in mind of protecting
the county from liability,"
Blackshear said. "We have
no problems with any kind
of festivals or mass gather-
ings as long as everyone is
protected. The intent of this
ordinance is to make sure
events are properly planned
for emergencies and so
forth. These changes are not


locked in stone. This is the
beginning of this process.
We wanted to come to you
with a good ordinance. Right
now the difficulty is in deal-
ing with non-profits without
overburdening them with
regulations and fees," she
said.
Rick Tower with the
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) spoke to the com-
missioners saying, "Our is-
sue is from a public safety
standpoint. When we are
looking at an event, from a
safety standpoint, we need
some knowledge of the event
and what the needs may be.
We need a map of the event
and the ability to sign off on
permits so we can be sure
the services we may need
to supply will be taken care
of. It would be helpful to us
in the permitting process, if
there is somebody acting as
a county event liaison with
the planning department."
Blackshear noted the or-
dinance, while still in the
draft stages, would be sent
to the county's emergency
management office for in-


put.
Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell said some the restric-
tions need to be looked at
pretty closely, noting that
some of the restrictions were
heavy. "Is everyone going to
be required to get a permit?"
he asked.
Terrell was told the per-
mit requirement is manda-
tory for anyone staging an
outdoor event in Walton
County. Those exempt from
this are county-sponsored
or approved outdoor events
held at the county fair-
grounds or on other county
property. Also exempt are
events approved by the
school board, religious, pri-
vate school, political and
other non-profit organiza-
tion events conducted on
property owned or leased by
those organizations, and ex-
isting businesses or entities
which have development
order approval for outdoor
events as an accessory use
and when no public liability
exposure exists.
Permit fees are. based
on the expected number of


people to attend an outdoor
function and the length of
the event. A filing applica-
tion fee of $100 per day per
1,000 anticipated patrons
would apply. If approval is
given to the applicant for
the permit, the same $100
per day per 1,000 patrons
will be paid again. None of
these fees are subject to re-
fund. It will be necessary to
keep an accurate accounting
of the number of attendees,
and should the number ex-
ceed what the permit calls
for, $200 for each additional
1,000 or fraction thereof,
shall be assessed.
Festival planners will
also be required to obtain
liability insurance of not
less than $300,000 dam-
age or injury to one person,
plus $25,000 in damages to
property. Policies for mul-
tiple claims of bodily injury
and property damages must
be written for $500,000 and
$50,000 respectively.
Commissioner Tom Pat-
ton said he thought the lia-
bility limits were too low. "I
think this needs to be tight-


ened up somewhat."
The ordinance also calls
for a cash bond of $50 for
cleanup, prompting Com-
missioner Patton to quip
that he's been to family pic-
nics where more than $50
would be required for clean-
ing up.
Rick Hefland, a volunteer
with the Seaside Neighbor-
hood School, addressed the
commissioners saying he
was very concerned about
the proposed ordinance
because the school's ma-
jor fundraiser, the annual
5K run and half-marathon
would be affected.
"I'm aware of the liability
issue because in any big race
I've ever run in, there's al-
ways been a death. We have
people sign a waiver before
the race."
Hefland feels the medi-
cal requirements are too
stringent as well. "We have
11,000 people come to watch
the race. The ordinance
would call for six doctors, 11
nurses and 50 beds. This is
excessive and would cut into
our net proceeds," he said.


"Also, to do what the ordi-
nance calls for, we would
need 22 deputies on duty as
well." Hefland felt the per-
mitting fees were too heavy.
"Every dollar we have to pay
the county is a dollar the
school doesn't get."
It should be noted the Sea-
side Neighborhood School
is not part of the Walton
County School District, nor
is it a private school, mak-
ing it unique in terms of the
proposed ordinance. MIVchael
Weimorts, another Seaside
Neighborhood School volun-
teer, said he was cognizant
of the county's concern re-
garding liability, but sug-
gested all-school events get
an exemption from the ordi-
nance.
"We can't exempt every-
one that comes along. There
are areas that need to be)
looked at very closely," Com-
missioner Terrell noted.
Ron Thomason, a for-
mer city planner in Volusia
County, told the commis-
sioners in his experience,

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 19,2008


BURKE FROM PAGE 1-C


The Walton Area Chamber of Commerce, ambassadors, and representatives from Alaqua
Animal Refuge celebrated the opening of their extraordinary new animal facility, with a
ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration on May 22, 2008. Alaqua Animal Refuge is
an independent, non-profit, organization located on Florida 's Emerald Coast. Alaqua ad-
vocates the general welfare and humane treatment of animals by providing shelter, preven-
tion of pet overpopulation and adoption services; while also serving as a no-kill shelter. The
facility is located at 914 Whitfield Road, in Freeport. For more information, or to volunteer,
contact (850) 622-2260 or visit their website at www.aarflorida.com.


Osborne has long con-
tended that stormwater
drainage infrastructure was
not provided per the prop-
erty's development order as
required prior to approval
of the final plat for the new
phases.
The approval of a plat is
the final requirement prior
to lots being sold in a subdi-
vision.
Osborne said that Phase
IIB is now almost all built
out, and that there is no-
where for stormwater in
Phase IIC to go.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows spoke for
removing the plat on the
basis of noncompliance with
county standards.
She said there is no lon-
ger a developer involved


with the new phases.
She agreed with Os-
borne that a remedy for the
stormwater problems would
require altering the plat,
possibly removing lots and
density and adding storm-
water drainage features.
"There's a golden oppor-
tunity to do that now," she
said.
Mike Burke, county le-
gal counsel, cautioned that,
while doing the latter "may
sound simple," it will likely
be anything but that.
After previous research
on the possibility of vacat-
ing the plat, Burke had re-
ported to the commission-
ers in April that this could
not happen in the absence
of a request to do so coming
from the owners of the lots


in question.
The fact that many of
these lots are not owned by
their original owner would
complicate the matter,
Burke advised on June 10
as he had stated two months
earlier.
"There are huge consti-
tutional principles at work
here," he noted.
Meadows moved to imme-
diately rescind the plat for
Phase IIC, but her motion
failed.
Her motion to set a public
hearing at which the vaca-
tion of the IIC plat would
be considered was approved
4-0, with Commission Chair-
man Larry Jones recusing
himself due to a business
association.
Affected property own-
ers are to be notified of the
hearing, which is set for 2
p.m. on July 8 at the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.


iw


on Dec 4, 2007, when he
was arrested just prior to
a SWCMCD board meet-
ing. The state alleged that
burke used a false address
when he applied to run for
the commissioner position,
Burke claimed to reside at
2780 U.S. 98 in Santa Rosa
Beach, the home of Dave's
Glass. The state contends
that he resides in neighbor-
ing Bay County with his
wife Jenny. Since that time
Governor Charlie Crist sus-
pended Burke by executive
order from participating in
SWCMCD issues until the
case was resolved.
A jury for the case was
seated on Monday, June 9,
in a scene reminiscent of the
days prior to air-conditioned
courthouses. A weekend
lightning storm had appar-
ently knocked out the elec-
tricity to the Walton County
Courthouse and the air-con-
ditioning had failed to re-
set. First Judicial Circuit
Court Judge Kelvin Wells
provided the prospective ju-
rors with manila envelopes
to fan themselves as they
waited. Wells apologized to
the citizens and promised
not to have the same prob-
lem Tuesday.
The court case began in
ernest the following morn-
ing in a much cooler setting.
During his opening state-
ment Assistant State Attor-
ney Greg Anchors stated he
would provide the jury with
evidence that would prove
Burke did not live at Dave's
Glass and therefore it could


The Walton Area Chamber of Commerce, ambassadors, and members of the Sandestin

ing of his newly released

Six juveniles, two adults, "borrow" a house


On June 12, at around
6:49 a.m., the Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
received a call that there
were two vehicles parked
in a driveway on Surfside
Drive in Santa Rosa Beach
that did not belong there.
The owner, who was not at
home at the time, had ad-
vised the caretaker who had
called him that no one was
supposed to be at his resi-
dence. The owner asked the
caretaker to call the sher-


iffs office. When deputies
arrived they were given per-
mission by the owner to go
into the residence.
Inside were six juveniles,
ages 14, 15, 16 and 17. Also
inside the residence were
two adults, ages 18. Dur-
ing the investigation it was
determined that one of the
female juveniles had invited
the other seven over to the
residence to drink and swim
in the pool and later to spend
the night. The seven other

individuals were report-
edly under the impression
that the residence belonged
to the juvenile's stepfather.
The owner is not related to
the juvenile.
All eight were trans-
ported to the Walton Coun-


ty Sheriffs South Walton
Sub-Station. The female
juvenile (from Santa Rosa
beach) that claimed that the
owner was her stepfather
was charged with one count
of burglary, theft of alcohol
from inside the residence,


and possession of alcohol
by person under the age, of
21. All of the juveniles were
charged with possession of
alcohol by person under the
age of 21. One of the 18-year
olds (from Miramar Beach)
was charged with posses-


sion of alcohol by person
under the age of 21 and also
with one count of petit theft.
A 17-year old male juvenile
was also charged with one
count of petit theft. The in-
vestigation is ongoing and
additional charges are pend-
ing.

not be claimed as a legal
residency. Burke's opening
comments followed with
claims that he had been
"thrust into this case by the
state" and that the charges
had no validity.
On this first day of the
trial the state called 14
witnesses, ranging from
neighbors to Burke's wife
in Panama City Beach to a
Houston County, AL., prop-
erty appraiser,
Due to the amount of cas-
es being heard at the Wal-
ton County Courthouse, the
second day of the trial was
held at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex in Santa
Rosa Beach with the state
resuming its case. In one of
the more defining moments
of the case a Panama City
resident testified that when
told Burke could not run for
an office in Walton County
because he lived in Bay
County, Burke said, "There
are ways around that." The
state then rested its case.
Burke's defense, in which
he represented himself as
he has done all along began
with the statement, "I do
not really have a plan here."
Afterwards he called upon
several witnesses, -none of
which came out and directly
said Burke resided in Wal-
ton County. Burke later
took the stand and emphati-
cally denied the charges.
"My residence, I firmly
state is 2780 U.S. 98 in San-
ta Rosa Beach," Burke said.
"My wife's residence and my
residence are separate. I


PAGE 3-C
have full intentions of being
a Walton County resident."
Throughout the trial
Wells had demonstrated
great patience and had giv-
en what he called -a "certain
latitude" to Burke as he was
representing himself. Dur-
ing his closing arguments
Burke was able to test the
flexibility of the judge when
he continued to quote a stat-
ute after being warned not
to do so on numerous in-
stances.
"I am directing you not to
give anymore information of
this type," Wells said stern-
ly. "If you do you will be held
in contempt of this court."
After receiving the judges
instructions the jury retired
to discuss their verdict.
Within approximately 1 1/2
hours, the six-member jury
(five men, one woman) jury
came back with guilty ver-
dicts on both charges.
Each count carries a po-,
tential jail sentence of five
years, and a maximum fine
of $5,000. Wells ordered a
pre-sentencing investiga-
tion and set the sentencing
date for July 10.
"It is always satisfying
when a jury finds merit in
the prosecution of matters of
this nature," said Anchors.
"Especially when Mr. Burke
refused to acknowledge his
lawful residence." The State
Attorney intends to contact
the governor, a move that
which should have the ul-
timate effect of removing
Burke permanently from
office. The verdict will no
doubt have an influence on
Burke's intention to run for
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners.

American public,
who we should vote
for?
------------- --------------------
Well, Hillary is out of the
race and it is back to just
McCain and Obama, vying
for the top spot in American
government. The
Democrats have said they
are back to being a unified
party, and McCain was
down in Florida, trying to
win over the independent
votes that favor a
restoration of the Florida
Everglades.

Commercials have
already aired, mud-slinging
and name-calling, while all
the world waits to see who
will be on the party tickets
come national convention
week. It is all over the
news, every step the
candidates make and no
stone will be unturned by
the media to find out what
their next step will be.
With all the coverage and
hype in the media, why
does Hollywood feel the
need to flood the airwaves
with their biased opinions?
There have been several
celebrities that have made
a bid for a government spot,
like Arnold
Schwarzenegger, Ronald
Reagan, Sonny Bono, and
Fred Thompson. They have
run on various platforms
and all have made some
changes to the office they
ran for and won, for the
most part.


Now there was one celeb
that threatened to pack up
and leave the United States
if their candidate or party
did not get into the White
House. That was the
statement made by
Hollywood's Susan
Sarandon a few weeks ago
about the Democrats.
She said she would pack
her stuff and move out of
the country if a Democrat
did not get the White
House. Commentators
asked if she needed some
help with her bags.
Everyone's favorite actor,
Tom Hanks, also butted in
and released a statement
and a paid commercial
announcing that he was an
Obama fan. He felt that he
needed to tell the American
public his opinion on who
he thought should take
over after the Bush
departure.
Here is a suggestion,
Tom, stick to polishing your
Oscars and leave the
politics and voting decision
up to those who are having
to struggle during this time
of economic hardship and
skyrocketing foreclosures
and lay-offs.
Hollywood has for many
years dictated to the
viewing audience, how they
should vote, think, act,
spend, love, feel and live
their daily lives. No matter
if it be politics, the
environment, or how to
raise a puppy, they seem to
always have the answers.
Over the past few
months, we have seen this,
unusually so with the
Obama campaign and his
loyal followers. Oprah
Winfrey, was told to back
off and lay low by her own
advisory staff.
She came out swinging
and endorsing Obama at
the first of the year, but
after her viewers and then
the media started to ride
her back about keeping to
the issues and staying with


the stories
that got
her where
I l she is
P today, she
hushed up.
This point
7- e;, was also
driven
home by
stock k
holders
who saw her ratings drop
drastically after endorsing
Obama and turning her
back on fellow-female
Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Remember, nearly 80
percent of her viewers are
female.
Once again, Ms. 0, stick
to telling your viewers
what books to read and
giving them free cars and
refrain from endorsing
candidates. Well, that is if
you are not planning on
being on the Obama/
Winfrey ticket. Are you?
As the summer months
get heated up, more and
more "celebrities" will be
giving their opinions and
endorsements. They will be
ranting and raving about
one candidate, and bashing
another, all for more
airtime.
As the election draws
closer and the voting public
begins to tear through
their candidates'
qualifications and
backgrounds, they will
ultimately make their own
decision. The ,constant
bombardment of Hollywood
elitefsand hard-htiters will
fall to the wayside.
For .all those Winfreys,
Hanks and Sarandons out
there, you are free and
granted the rights by the
Constitution to express
your feelings and opinions.
The point this writer is -
trying to make is don't
threaten to pack up and
leave, stop making movies,
or snatch your show off the
air.

Remember, every four
years we have to hear
political speeches and hire
somebody new to the
presidency, the same goes
for Hollywood. You are just
a face on the screen and
once you are gone, there
will be 1,000 more just like
you to fill your position and
role!

new parking lot design. This parking
area is located on the north side of
Scenic Gulf Drive across from the
western end of the parking deck, and
will serve as a staging 'area for the
first phase of the project. The exist-
ing northern parking lot has asphalt,
concrete curbing, and gravel that will
be demolished and removed. There
will be a minimum of 12" of subgrade
that will be required in addition to
8" of limerock base along with 2" of

structe along two sides of the pond

NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING

The Walton County Board of
Commissioners will hold a brief
Special Meeting on Friday, June
20, 2008 at 8:30 a.m. at the Walton
County Courthouse located at 571
U.S. Highway 90, DeFuniak Springs,
Florida to approve the Expenditure

made a motion to send the
ordinance back to the plan-
ning department for further
review and amendment. All
passed the motion.


The only other legislative
item was dispensed with
quickly. A special ordinance
calling for a height limita-
tion in Point Washington of
32-feet above the average
natural grade of the parcel.
The county's land develop-
ment code currently has a
county ,wide height limit
of 50-feet, but Point Wash-
ington residents wanted to
make sure no new develop-
ment in that area would
have a structure taller than
the house at Eden State
Gardens. The motion was
passed by all.


DEAL FROM PAGE 1-C


homes at three stories, a
story less than what was al-
lowable in the rest of south
Walton County. That plan
is still part of the Walton
County Comprehensive
Plan.
Inlet Beach residents at-
tending the June 10 commis-
sion meeting spoke against
allowing heights in the Vil-
las at Inlet Beach to exceed
what had been approved in
2003.
"I don't want to see this
happen any more," said In-
let Beach resident Darrell
Russell, adding that devel-
opment like this "pollutes
the visual character of Inlet
Beach."
Speaking for himself, im-
mediate neighbors of the
subdivision, and the Histor-
ic Inlet Beach Neighborhood
Association, next-door prop-
erty owner Dr. John Naftel
also spoke against allowing
the two homes that exceed
the previously- approved
limit to stand at their cur-
rent level.
Inlet Beach resident Bet-
ty Letcher also questioned
whether the parking pro-
vided would be adequate for
the homes, which are being
advertised as four-bedroom.
Permits on two of the
three unbuilt lots being con-
sidered for vesting were over
180 days old, according to
Gary Demers of the Walton
County Building Depart-
ment. Demers said those
two permits could therefore
be voided.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander motioned to
revoke the building permits
on all three unbuilt lots and


require new applications for
those lots. The motion was
approved unanimously.
With the question re-
maining how to deal with the
two substantially-complete
homes, Blackshear asked
Demers whether it would be
viable for a story or stories
to be removed from the top
of the homes. Demers said it
would not, since the homes
are concrete. While it could
possibly be done, he said,
the cost would likely equal
what it would take to demol-
ish and rebuild the homes.
LaSeur said she under-
stood that the property is
currently under foreclosure.
The Herald/Breeze was able
to verify with the Walton
County Clerk of Court's of-
fice that the three unbuilt
lots, 1, 3 and 4, along with
Lots 5 through 11 of the
Villas at Inlet Beach, are
scheduled for foreclosure
later this month.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows said she
was having a hard time be-
lieving that the developers
"just accidentally messed up
and built a five-story house.
"They have actually low-
ered property values in the
community," she said.
Meadows said she could
not support letting the mat-
ter go. To do so would send
the community the message
that "Walton County is not
going to protect you," she
concluded. She motioned to
have the homes brought into
compliance with the heights
specified in the development
order. The motion was ap-
proved unanimously.

of the 50 acres in March 2000, shortly after 30 acres of forest
