Johnson taking measures following budget meeting


By BRUCE COLLIER '
On Sept. 15, Walton
County Sheriff Ralph John-
son sent a representative to
the Walton County Board
of County Commission-
ers (BCC) meeting on the


pending budget for fiscal
2008-09, requesting an in-
crease of $320,000 over the
2007-08 fiscal year budget.
The details of that meeting
are reported in another ar-
ticle in this issue. The new


budget was tentatively ap-
proved, without Johnson's
requested increase. A final
budget hearing will be held
on Sept. 29.
On Sept. 16, Johnson sent
a memo to "Supervisors and


Deputies." The subject .of
the memo was "Car Fees."
The memo, in its entirety,
reads:
"Effective October 1, 2008,
all personnel that drive com-
pany issued vehicles home


.will be charged a $100.00
fee. This is to include. both
marked and unmarked ve-
hicles. This $100.00 will be
withheld from your pay-

County approves


tentative $111.6


million budget


By DOTTY NIST
A $111.6 million total
budget has been tentatively
approved by Walton County
for the 2008-09 fiscal year,
which begins in October.
The tentative budget, ap-
proved by the Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) on Sept. 15,
represents approximately a
J13 percent reduction from
the 2007-08 fiscal .year's
budget of $128 million.
Walton County Finance
Director William Imfeld;
presented the proposed bud-
get to the BCC at this first,
of two required hearings for
budget adoption. Imfeld not-
ed the new budget "reflects
reductions in sales, gas, and


ad valorem tax revenues,
since all have been decreas-
ing. Taxable property val-
ues in the county have not
increased as in recent years
but have shown a decrease.
In July, the BCC had
voted to set the county's
maximum millage rate at
3.3563 mills, the same rate
as for the 2007-08 year. The
rollback rate, the one that
would have generated -the
same amount of ad valorem
taxes as the current year, is
.1795 mills higher. One mill
equals one dollar per $1,000
of taxable property value.
After the July BCC decision
on the millage rate, that
rate may be lowered but not
raised. At the Sept. 15 hear-


ing the BOC voted to keep
the tentative millage rate at
3.3563 mills.
Imfeld announced that
the state is now mandating
an additional $833,000 cut
in the proposed budget due
to lower-than-anticipated
sales tax revenues. "We're
struggling to find' that," he
told the commissioners.
County Administrator
Ronnie Bell revealed that,
due to a statute change,
the county is now facing
an $18,000 increase in the
amount paid to the Division
of Forestry for. fighting fires
within the county.

Council moved onto their
regularly scheduled meet-
ing. In the first order of busi-
ness, Mayor Harold Car-
penter re-appointed Donald
Truitt to the DeFuniak
Spring Housing Authority.
Wal-Mart received ap-
proval for 25 temporary
storage units to be placed
on their property between
the dates of September 2008
and mid-January 2009.
The DeFuniak Springs
Women's Club received
unanimous approval to
block off Circle Drive for
Halloween trick or treating
and for the annual Christ-
mas Parade. The Council
also unanimously approved
to waive the fee for the
sound system for a ben-
efit to support Allen Rescue
Foundation (ARF). The non-
profit foundation will hold
an auction and yard sale at
the Lakeyard amphitheater
on October 4 to benefit the
adult dog sanctuary..
Public Works Direc-
tor Bill Holloway received
unanimous approval on two
requests for new equipment.

The electronic pump control
will allow the city to keep
a better tab ,on millage and
gas us4d by employees. The
old control is a key system,
but employees write down
their use on a log kept in
vehicles. Holloway said the
new device will keep up
with all aspects of fuel man-
agement and employee us-
age automatically and will
assist with the budgeting
process for departments in
the future. The purchase
was bid at $8,130.
The second purchase ap-
proved was for a trailer-
mounted sewer cleaner with
a television inspection sys-
tem. Holloway said the sys-
tem will replace the city's
old sewer jetter that is con-
stantly under repair. As the
Public Works Department
uses the new device, it will
record the images and help
troubleshoot sewer and wa-
ter issues throughout the
city lines. The images will
be mapped by being trans-


ferred onto discs and stored
for future reference. The
purchase was budgeted and
came in at $80,629. Hollo-
way said this was consid-
ered a good price since they
had requested a price from
another company to provide
the service without purchas-
ing equipment and received
an $11,000 quote to map one
street.

check." The memo is signed
by Johnson.
It was also reported in an-
other periodical that John-
son intended to serve eight
full-time and two part-time
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice (WCSO) employees a no-
tice of employment termina-
tion, effective Sept. 30. That
notice reportedly was to
have been given last week.
WCSO Capt. Eddie Ferris
confirmed the notices and
memo, and said "[Johnson's]
hands are more or less fro-
zen," adding, "If he gets the
money, then nobody will
get laid off." As for the $100
vehicle fee, Ferris was not
certain whether the BCC's
approval of the additional
$320,000 would obviate the
need to collect that fee. Fer-
ris said that the vehicle fee,
if implemented, would be a
once-per-month charge.
The WCSO has listed its


current number of positions,
including administrative,
mechanics, communications,
deputy sheriffs, extradition
deputies, investigators, nar-
cotics investigators, bailiffs
and school resource officers,
as being 209. A Blue Cross/
Blue Shield of Florida insur-
ance group invoice for the
WCSO, billed Aug. 20, 2008,
shows a total of 215 insured
employees, including seven
bailiffs, who are paid by the
state. A 2007 Criminal Jus-
tice Agency Profile report
for Florida shows that Wal-
ton County has an officer-
to-population ratio of 2.72
per 1,000 county residents.
This is' the third-highest
such ratio in the state. At a
July 11, 2007 meeting of the
BCC, Johnson told the com-
mission that Walton County
needed a ratio of 1.5 depu-
ties per 1,000 of county pop-
ulation.

positions from the county
commission and its depart-
ments have been eliminated
in conjunction with the pro-
posed budget, along with
other cost reduction strate-
gies.
'In public comment, Da-
vid Kramer urged the BCC
to bear in mind that some
additional revenues might
be reduced due to action on
Value Adjustment Board
applications.
Bonnie McQuiston
thanked the BCC for their
millage rate decision and
suggested a look at reduc-
ing "recurring expenses."
She called for an inventory
of county vehicles and possi-
bly elimination of some from
the fleet. She suggested that
. the number of county em-
ployee cell phones might be
reduced as well.
Walton County Sheriff
Ralph Jolnson had original-
ly proposed a $1.4 million
budget increase over the
current fiscal year, but the
finance department and the
scrub committee had recom-
mended no increase for the
sheriffs office budget.
On Sept. 15, a CPA rep-
resentinrg the sheriffs of-
fice came forward with an
alternative proposal for a
$13,343,556. budget, rep-,
resenting a more modest
$320,000 increase over the
2007-08 fiscal year budget.
"We feel that this is the
most austere budget that
the sheriff. 'can "come up'
with...for proper operationsn
of the sheriffs -office," said
CPA Robert Patrick. Pat-
rick said the sheriff had


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


eliminated previously-pro-
posed three-percent raises
for employees and reduced
capital outlay, by $120,000.
He added that, without the
proposed increase, it would
be necessary for the sheriff
to lay off eight full-time em-
ployees and two temporary
employees.
Patrick anticipated bud-
get problems with the sher-
iffs office being required
to pay employees for their
accumulated leave upon
resignation.. Since Sheriff
Johnson was not re-elected,
it would be likely that some
would leave prior to a new
sheriff taking over, he ex-
plained.
Johnson explained that
due to his "lame duck" status
he cannot move line items
within his budget during his
last three months in office
without asking the BCC for
permission, nor can he spend
more than one-twelfth of his


approved budget in any one
month. "If I overspent that,
I'd be personally liable,"
Johnson said.
Imfeld revealed that
$490,000 in funding is set
aside in the county budget
to cover accumulated leave
for sheriffs office employees
who resign. "The accumu-
lated leave is really not an
issue," he commented.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows was in fa-
vor of the BCC at minimum
agreeing to the part of the
sheriffs requested $320,000
increase that would fund
vehicle repair costs and fuel
costs, especially since fuel
costs may increase further.
"That would be $240,000,"
she said. "We can cut back
on fuel, but I'm not sure how
much the sheriffs office can
cut back on fuel."
Meadows added that the
commission policy has been
not to lay off employees. She


was also in favor of finding
the funds to save sheriffs
office employees' jobs from
being eliminated.
County Commission
Chairman Larry Jones coun-
tered that all county consti-
tutional officers (including
Sheriff Johnson) had been
requested to work up bud-.
gets reflecting zero increase
for 2008-09.
"Every other constitution-
al officer did what we asked
them to do," he observed,
adding that the. state has
now told the county that it'
will receive $833,000 less
for the new fiscal year.
The tentative millage
rate and budget were ap-
proved as presented with-
out the increase requested
by the sheriff.
A final budget hearing
has been scheduled for 5:05
p.m. onSept. 29 At the Wal-
ton County Courthouse in
DeFuniak Springs.


Danny Griffith deserves our vote for Sheriff.

This November, the citizens of Walton County will choose between two
candidates for the office of Walton County Sheriff. Vying for this honor is
a highly qualified candidate with innovative new ideas, Danny Griffith.

Danny has been a proud and effective member of the Florida Highway
Patrol for 30 years. He has also been a small business owner for over
20 years. His unfailing dedication to law enforcement will be available to
the citizens of our entire county. Danny has the highest level of integrity
and work ethic in law enforcement. He is absolutely fair, and refuses to
take any shortcut that might result in less than a complete investigation.

I encourage everyone who cares about Walton County to vote for
integrity, leadership and "command'presence" and to elect Danny
Griffith for Walton County Sheriff.

Is the Fourth Estate also the Fifth Column?

Estate more important far than they all."
A fifth column is a group of people who clandestinely un-
dermine a larger group to which it is expected to be loyal,
such as a nation.
I submit that for today, at least, the two .have proven to
be one in the same.
For example, one of the biggest international events of
the year, maybe of the decade, took place a few days ago.
I'll bet that you heard very little about it from the national
media. They were too busy attacking the Republican vice-
presidential nominee to be bothered with something as
mundane as this.
I am referring to the fact that Saudi Arabia walked out
on OPEC, abandoning the cartel.
Let me say that again. Saudi Arabia walked but on OPEC
on September"10, 2008! What should have been a big, bold
headline on the front of every major newspaper in America
didn't even make it above the fold in most cases, if it was
reported at all. i
A spokesman for the Saudis said they would.not honor
the cartel's planned production cut to drive up the cost of
gasoline yet again. According to MSN, the Saudis said they
were tired of the rants of Hugo Chavez, of Venezuela, and
the "well-dressed oil minister from Iran." A senior Saudi
OPEC delegate said, "Saudi Arabia will meet the market's
demand. We will see what the market requires and we will
not leave a customer without oil."
This news could not be better for America. Without the
Saudis, OPEC. is essentially broken. The Saudis recognize
that OPEC was trying to kill the goose that laid the golden
egg and were likely concerned that Americans had awak-
ened and were demanding more domestic drilling, thus re-
ducing our dependence on foreign oil.
Further, OPEC heeds the cooperation and support of
Saudi Arabia to continue to be able to dictate pricing and
supply. Without the Saudis, OPEC can still exist, but it is
a toothless old tiger with no claws.
Here's another story you may not have heard in Ameri-
ca.
The Investor's Business Daily editorial board recefitly
asked, "What would happen if the U.S. won a war but the
media didn't tell the American public?"
'In late June, the London Sunday Times reported "the
culmination of one of the most spectacular victories of the
war on terror." The Times reported that the terrorist force
that once numbered more than 12,000, with strongholds
in the west and central regions of Iraq, has over two years
been reduced to a mere 1,200 fighters, backed against the
wall in the northern city of Mosul.
Times reporter Gerard Baker wrote, "The current mood'
on both sides of the Atlantic, in fact, represents a kind of
curious inversion of the great French soldier's dictum: 'Suc-
cess against the Taliban. Enemy giving way in Iraq. Al-
Qaeda on the run. Situation dire. Let's retreat!...'
Baker went on to say, "Next time you hear someone say
that the war in Afghanistan is an exercise in futility ask
them this: do they seriously think that if the U.S. and its
allies had not ousted the Taliban and sustained an offen-
sive against them for six years that there would have been
no more terrorist attacks in the West? What characterized
Islamist terrorism before the Afghan war was increasing
sophistication, boldness and terrifying efficiency. What has
characterized the terrorist attacks in the past few years
has been their crudeness, insignificance and a faintly comi-
cal ineptitude.
"The 'surge,' despite all the doubts and derision at the
time, has been a triumph of US military planning and ex-
ecution. Political progress was slower in coming but is now
evident too. The Iraqi leadership has shown great cour-
age and dispatch in extirpating extremists and a growing
willingness even to turn'on Shia militias. Basra is more
peaceful and safer than it has been since before the British
moved in. Despite setbacks such as yesterday's bombings,
the streets of Iraq's cities are calmer and safer than they
have been in years.'Seventy companies have bid for oil con-
tracts from the Iraqi Government. There are signs of a real,
political reconciliation that may reach fruition in the elec-
tion later this year."
What do you mean, Faithful Reader, that you did not.
catch that news on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN or MSN? Not
in Time, Newsweek or any of the other news magazines,
either?
Hmmm. I think the national media, once our protec-
tor against chicanery, deceit and misdirection by the gov-
ernment, has become a fifth column with its own agenda.
Thankfully, I am not the only one that has noticed.'
Two weeks ago, a new Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely
voters shows that by a stunning five-to-one margin, Ameri-
cans believe the media are actively trying to help Barack
Obama win the presidential election.
The nevw poll comes on the heels of the previous week's
survey that discovered by .a margin of 10 to 1, the public
believes the media are trying to hurt Republican vice presi-
dential nominee Sarah Palin. In fact, Democrats and "unaf-
filiated" voters both believe that journalists are attempting
to help Obama, too.
It should go without saying that the national media has
no business trying to elect a president or even endorse one.
It should go without saying that the media's job is to report
all the facts on all the issues and all the candidates with-
out editorializing. This kind of yellow-journalism insults
the public's intelligence and suggests that no one is smart
enough to arrive at a positive conclusion unless they are
told in advance what that conclusion should be.
It was Edmund Burke who said, "All that is necessary
for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
So do something. For the next few weeks, skip the eve-
ning network news. Put that daily paper on hold. Turn on
your local radio station and pick up your local newspaper.
Then on election day, go to the polls and vote your con-
science. Everything else will work itself out.
In the words of Edward R. Murrow, "Good night and
good luck."

Chandler Rouhlac, the great-grandson of James and
Chestine (deceased) Henderson, of.DeFuniak Springs, son
of Hale Rodgers, of Bluewater Bay, had to have brain sur-
gery in Pensacola because of a slowly growing brain tumor
called a polycitic astrocytema cancer that has spread from
his brain to his brain stem.
Chandler is a 10-year-old, fifth-grader, at Bluewater Bay
elementary school in Niceville, FL, where he lives.
The surgery went well as the tumor was removed from
the brain but could not be removed from the brain stem.
Chandler was released form the hospital last week but the
battle is not over. This will be an ongoing illness and bat-
tle including chemotherapy, physical therapy and possibly
more hospital stays and operations. The cost of the medical
care and transportation to and from hospitals for treatment
has put a real burden on the family. The family and friends
also want to provide Chandler with all special needs items
to get through this tough time.
' Donations for Chandler and his family can be made at
any Bank Trust Bank branch in his name. Any and all con-
tributions will be greatly appreciated to help this family get
their lives back together and make sure Chandler lives a
long and fruitful life. For more information, call 859-2026.

Editor:
This letter is in response to Leah Stratman's column of
September 11, 2008. I have enjoyed the addition of Leah
Stratman's column to the paper. This one prompted me to
comment. I hope and pray that all Americans will at least
vote. We should all know that neither candidate can do as
they promise because of Congress. Promises, Promises re-
quire lots of support from constituents which is money...
(the old "I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine" way).
The money Congress makes with all it's "perks" could re-
duce the government debt. How can we allow them to keep
voting themselves raises? Shouldn't that be a vote before
the people who voted them into office? (My soap box.) .
John McCain may be "old" and repeat' himself, but at
least he has a past worth repeating. As a war veteran
standing up for his country, he at least stands up and sa-
lutes the flag with his hand over his heart for the pledge
of allegiance. What past does Obama have, 20 years in a
church that he now denounces?
As for Sarah Palin, who cares what her children's names
are. What of Obama, his name should concern us-how ex-
tremely Muslim-sounding can one get and want to be presi-
dent of the United States of America?
Palin didn't take the easy "out" while pregnant with her
last child. that is taking a huge stand. She probably talked
until she was blue in the face about abstinence and birth
control. But teenage girls do what they want and live with
the consequences. What parent doesn't know that? Palin
hasn't denounced her daughter. That is another stand
taken.
A woman is a great course of action politically, consider-
ing how close Hillary came, and Palin has more experience
than Obama.
As a DeFuniak Springs resident from 1977 to 2003, I
can relate to your zip code experiences. First, south of town
in the "valley" then north of town in "New Harmony" (24
years) both were DeFuniak addresses. But for a long time
I couldn't be found in the DFS phone book because of my
telephone number with a Paxton exchange. (Their phone
company is in Florala, Alabama). Welcome to the country!!
I loved it and really miss it.
Mrs. Stratman, for sleep you might try taking your
RDA of calcium at bedtinie and/ or a large glass of milk
(warm or cold). Another suggestion is a sound machine, my
favorites are the sound of waves on the beach, night sounds
(crickets, etc.) or even rain works for me, with occasional
low thunder.
Sincerely

Editor,
In regard to the campaign for our next president of the
United States I am writing to ask that all Americans take a
moment, step back from the rhetoric and hype, the labeling
and name-calling, and simply look at the facts of where we
are today,
We continue to suffer additional dead and injured brave
service men and women and spend billions of dollars every
month and on a five-year long war--a war that did not need
to be waged. (As you may remember we had Iraq under an
international embargo, inspectors on the ground and a no-
fly zone over the country.)
We have spent the last five years preoccupied with Iraq
and have let seven years pass without capturing or killing
Osama Bin Laden, the man responsible for 9/11.
Our economy is in terrible condition. Thousands of peo-
ple have lost their jobs and thousands more foreclosed out
of their homes.
Millions of Americans have inadequate or no health in-
surance coverage because it is simply not affordable.
The cost of food, fuel, medicine,' medical treatment and
education has soared over the last eight years. We now pay
four dollars for a gallon of gas and five dollars for a gallon of
milk. And mothers know how much the cost of bread, cereal
and other staples has risen.
For those who are fortunate to have savings or retire-
ment funds to invest, the stock market has plunged, the
real estate market is dismal and interest rares on savifigs
barely exceed the rate of inflation.
Our government is spending billions of dollars to bail
out big corporations. Where are these billions coming from?
From us, the taxpayers. But what is the federal govern-
ment doing to help the poor, the working middle' class-the
average American taxpayer?
The eight years of Republican administration has al-
lowed thousands of Americans' jobs to be shipped overseas.
In return, we have been deluged with many dangerous, un-
healthy products from other countries like China.
Over the last eight years, a time when America's nation-
al security should have been our top priority, our govern-
ment allowed millions of illegal and undocumented aliens
to enter and remain in our country. Why? Cheap labor for
big business.
The Republican administration advocated the sale of ma-
jor U.S. port facilities to the very Middle Eastern countries
that were home to 9/11 terrorists.
Please ask yourself this question-are you better off now
than you were eight years ago? If not, please consider vot-
ing' for change. Barack Obama is the only candidate who
offers new direction, new leadership, new vision and new
hope. Lets get America back on track by electing Barack
Obama our next president.
' David Holder,
Freeport



Editor,
Several years ago Jeb Bush, St. Joe and the Bay County
commissioners were noted to have their hands in each of
the other's back pockets and were promoting self-serving,
unrestricted developments: Their legacy is just one com-
ponent' of our national financial crises built upon avarice
and greed of biblical perplexity. And now, perhaps like the
Tower of Babel, all venal parties seemingly speak in the
multiple tounges of Karl Rove.
Apparently, the condos to heaven are empty. St. Joe is
reduced to what appears to be a skeleton business that only
manages a few early developments. The new airport, touted
to bring Europeans to buy St. Joe developments, has be-
come unaffordable, a potential tax payer burden, and "the
airport to nowhere."
Panama City still relies on spring break to make or break
the tax budget. Panama City and P.C. Beach are still called
the Redneck Riviera. And for some reason, the same Re-
publican good ole boys in the business community still get
elected to government.
Subsequently, if this continues and there is not a new na-
tional trend, we can look forward to being "Bush-Whacked"
again.

CORRECTION:

In our Sept. 18 story, "Primary candidates' contribu-
tions," we incorrectly stated that Cecelia Jones had con-
tributed $15,000 to her own campaign. In fact, Jones
contributed $25,664.10 to her campaign for county com-
missioner, a job that pays approximately $39,000. We
regret the error and any confusion it may have caused.

Walton County seeks public input

on senior needs through October


The Walton County which Walton County and
Board of CorityoC ami- "all municipalities have
sioniers (BCC)i in:c6llabota- agreed to participate. 16g
tion with the- cities of De- on to www. The link to the
Funiak Springs, Paxton and Communities for a Lifetime
Freeport, is seeking public website is www.communi-
input on the needs of Wal-
ton County seniors through
a survey being distributed T>] M M l i
throughout October. The
information collected will W | S L9
serve as a tool to improve
the quality of life for se- 1. L
niors and intergenerational
populations using existing (He'willtak
area resources. It will also
help leaders close the gap
between what seniors and
other age groups need and
what is available to them to
help empower their lives.
"The needs assessment A '
is the first step towards
making needed changes for '
seniors in Walton Coun-
ty," says J.B. Hillard of Bruce Nayor
DeFuniak Springs, who is owner-Broker
serving as the local mod-


erator for the county-wide
committee orchestrating the
survey. The committee is
seeking guidance from state
leaders through a new pro-
gram initiated by the Florida
Department of Elder Affairs
called "Communities for a
Lifetime." Each municipal-
ity in Walton County joined
county commissioners in
signing on to the new pro-
gram and committing t&the
program's objectives. Wal-
ton County is one of the few
Florida counties where all
municipalities have joined
the effort with county lead-
ers.
The needs assessment
survey is being published by
the BCC and will be avail-
able for citizens to complete
at county and city govern-
ment offices, libraries, the
county's website at www.
co.walton.fl.us and various
participating businesses
wishing to be listed as a
distribution point. The sur-
veys must be completed
and returned by Oct. 31 to
Ken Little, Citizen Services
Director for Walton Coun-
ty, 312 College Avenue,
DeFuniak Springs, Flori-
da 32435. Questions about
the survey may be directed

HEALTH MATTERS Life Extension: Hype or Hope


By L. D.
Rafey, PA-C -.
Healthmark
Rural Health
Clinic


Why, you might ask, can
we not fix aging (senescence)
with a pill? We can't for the
same reason that we cannot
repair or refresh vehicle by
simply filling it with a differ-
ent fuel. If living organisms
were perfectly engineered,
they would perform opti-
mally for an unspecified pe-
riod of time and, then go to.
pieces all at once, and noth-
ing first, just as bubbles do
when they burst. But living
organisms are less elegantly
fashioned; evolve over time
via a continuous series of
self-adjustments and wither


by degrees. Such measured
transfiguration provides for
enormous flexibility but at
obvious cost in the form of
a lumbering rebellion of the
flesh.
It must be emphasized
that senescence is not a dis-
ease but represents a per-
fectly natural process that
requires' no apology. Even
those organisms that fail to
age do eventually succumb
to predation, disease, acci-
dent or to increasing genetic
damage due to recurrent
cellular maintenance and
the cumulative effects of
environmental damage. Ag-
ing is an aggregate process,
affecting all biological com-
ponents at once. But what is
the nature of aging?
The process of reproduc-
tion is a fundamental feature
of life, even more important
than maintenance and re-


pair. Moreover, many traits
that possess reproductive
value may have negative ef-
fects beyond reproduction.
Calcium deposition in bones,
for example, is wonderful
for youth but also promotes
arteriosclerosis in the aged.
Once the reproductive ca-
pacity is either exhausted or
has achieved some unspeci-
fied level of success, the in-
dividual becomes a kind of
disposable commodity, its
demise, having little conse-
quence to the population at
large. This eventual demise
also protects the population
against the effects of late-
onset mutations that might
otherwise be passed along
through continuous repro-
duction.
This is not to suggest that
we cannot benefit from some
assistance. Antioxidant pills
and similar preparations


are of little benefit since
they are effectively degrad-
ed by digestion into useless
byproducts. Additionally,
benefits and risks of thera-
pies such as hormone ad-
ministration are still being
assessed. Lifestyle changes,
stem cell research and nano-
technology hold the greatest
promises for the possibility
of rejuvenation and will, no


doubt, extend our existence
far beyond current boundar-
ies.
The bottom line: no treat-
ment or drug is currently
known to slow aging or to
extend life in humans. For
now, the essential objective
is to stay healthy and in-
dependent as we age. Mod-
eration in all things is still
the best advice. Above all,


regular contact with others
(friends, family members),
daily activity (mental as
well as physical), a positive
attitude toward life experi-
ences and maintaining sim-
plicity in our lives have a far
greater positive influence on
our internal systems than
any pill, therapy or drug,
despite the .exaggerated
claims of their sponsors.

minutes and 21 seconds fol-
lowed closely by Laura Gil-
lis, who won the overall fe-
male walker with a time of
40 minutes and 8 seconds.
Many thanks to all the
volunteers who made this
race a success. Volunteers

ing: Walton High School's
Anchor Club, Key Club, and
R.O.T.C, Ronnie Bell of De-
Funiak Springs, DeFuniak

Plant a tree for Arbor Day


The Arbor Day Founda-
tion has unveiled a new
campaign where those who
join the tree-planting or-
ganization this month will
help replant America's Na-
tional Forests for future
generations to enjoy.
The Arbor Day Founda-
tion will honor each new
member, who 'joins the
Foundation through this
new campaign between now
and Sept. 30, by planting 10
trees in our national forests
that have been destroyed by
insects, disease, and dev-
astating fires. Membership
costs $10.
The need to replant the
National Forests is greater
than ever. Wildfire season
started early this year, and
the previous three years
brought unprecedented


wildfires throughout the
country. In that span, wild-
fires scorched more than 27
million acres in the .United
States.
The Arbor Day Founda-
tion will work with the U.S.
Forest Service, as it has for
20 years, to determine which
forests will receive the trees
based on the greatest need.
The U.S..Forest Service has
identified a one-million-acre
backlog that needs replant-
ing mainly due to record
wildfires in recent years.
To join the Arbor Day
Foundation and help plant
trees in National Forests,
send a $10 membership con-
tribution to Replanting Our
National Forests, Arbor Day
Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave.,
Nebraska City, NE 68410,

The WCPC is there for you oVN Co


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County Pre-
vention Coalition (WCPC)
may be one of the best-kept
secrets in Walton County.
The coalition has been op-
erating since 2003 with the
task in mind of educating
adults, teens and children
alike on the dangers of sub.-
stance abuse and the path
away from unhealthy be-
haviors.
Preventing substance
abuse in the underaged and
adult population is the main
focus of the coalition, with
representatives from over
20 different organizations.
Two areas the group is tar-
geting are tobacco use and
underage alcoholic beverage
consumption. The coalition
is also looking at a program
on prescription drug abuse
in the future.
The WCPC is trying to
provide information to youth
and an education on the
dangers of substance abuse,
according to Special Proj-
ects and Tobacco Coordina-
tor Charity Parker. "We try
and meet with groups and
anyone who has an interest
in helping kids and adults
live tobacco and substance
free." Parker said the group
is more than willing to work
with any group that request
information.
Getting the. county's
youth involved in a feedback
process is very important to
the coalition. Michael Perry,
tobacco free community liai-
son for the group, says going
out into the kid's environ-

Tour of Homes, sponsored
by Partners in Progress, is

cember 6, 2008, from 9 a.m.

ment is one way the coali-
tion is trying, to improve
children's lives and stop the
use of dangerous substanc-
es. "We recently held an
empowerment summit with
children and teens through-
out the county. They are
learning to become leaders
in their' neighborhoods and
help other teens and adults
learn more healthy coping
mechanisms than abusing
substances. Where as Stu-
dents Working Against To-
bacco (SWAT), one of our
partners, works mainly in
the school, we move out into
the community and work to
improve one's environment
as well."
Perry said that they wel-
come input from teens. "We
need to hear from them
and then we build and sub-
mit programs based on the
needs of those kids and their
communities." The coalition
also uses special events such
as the Walton County Fair,
Red Ribbon Week and the
Great American Smoke-Out
to further their message.
The coalition also has a
new Web site, partnered
with the Florida Depart-
ment of Health, online at
www.livefreewalton.com.
The Web site is an interac-
tive tool anyone can use to
help them quit smoking and
learn about the dangers of
tobacco. It is geared toward
adults and teens. Reaching
out to health-care provid-
ers and teachers is also a
way the coalition is working
on reaching youth with the
dangers of tobacco. "Parker

addition to featuring eight


said, "We are trying to get
them information so they
can pass it along as well as
becoming aware that they
are role models in their be-
haviors as well."
The difference in the
needs of adults and children
in the county can vary ac-
cording to where they live
in the county. Perry said,
"In the north end, kids are
more likely to use chewing
tobacco. In DeFuniak, we
see more smoking and in the
south end, we have found a
combination of both. The
program is then developed
to cover all groups."
Perry said goals submit-
ted to the state for evalua-
tion and economic support
are evaluated and the re-
sults help determine support
for the program the follow-
ing year. The more citizens
the group is able to reach,
the more likely they are to
receive funding to continue
their educational endeav-
ors on behalf of the com-
munity. The group receives
funding from local and state
sources specifically set up
to fund anti-drug collations..
The WCPC also receives a
majority of matching funds
from the Cope Center, Inc.
Perry said local govern-
ment can also help spread
the word on the dangers of
substance abuse and re-en-
force positive role modeling
for the underage citizens as
well. "We need county com-
missioners, local city offi-
cials and anyone in our gov-
ernment that can help move
policy forward to make more


(purchased recently and au-
thentically restored)! Start
making plans now to be a
part of the Christmas fun at
the Annual Tour of Homes
in DeFuniak Springs on


smoke-free zones in govern-
ment jobs. Policy in place to
make work smoke-free zones
would be a positive move for
all citizens. Parents are also
needed to .explain the dan-
gers and provide positive
role modeling for other fam-
ily members." Second-hand
smoke affects everyone in
the house and it endangers
more than just the smoker,
said Perry.
Business can join in the
smoke-free movement by
supporting employees for
quitting and supporting a
local Walton Quit day, said
Perry.
The Coalition, while
working on the education
side,, also refers citizens to
others who can help them
quit smoking. One such re-
source is the Quit-line. A
citizen can call 1-877-u-can-
now, and receive support,
counseling and nicotine re-
placement therapy, free.

the WCPC, call 850-892-

one, to improve a

community for all."

THE WCPC is working to improve the health and educa-
tion of all citizens of Walton County.

By JEFFREY
POWELL
Approximately 70
percent of the earth's
surface is covered by
oceans. And although
great strides have been
made to explore these
depths much of this
vast underwater abyss
remains a mystery to
mankind.
The origins of div-
ing can be traced back
more than 5,000 years.
Early underwater ex-
plorers used breathing
tubes, inflated animal
skins and leather sacks
in an attempt to re-
main below the waters
surface. These primi-
tive methods of diving
demonstrate the level
of mans interest in the
depths, an interest that
continues to this day.
The Museum of Man
in the Sea is a facil-
ity that is dedicated to
preserving the history
of diving and man's ex-
perience under the sea.
In continual operation
since 1982, the mu-
seum has recently re-
newed its efforts to pro-
mote and improve the
museum. The facility
was opened by the In-
stitute of Diving which
oversees and funds the
operation. Leslie Baker
is a certified diver and
the new manager of the
museum.
"The museum's mis-
sion is to preserve the
history and heritage of
military, commercial
and recreational div-
ing," said Baker. "Our
main focus at this time
is. to share these trea-
sures with the general
public and inform them
of the economic impact
the diving industry has
had over the years on
the entire Panhandle."
One of the large ex-
hibits at the museum


is the original military
saturation diving habi-
tat Sealab 1 which was
built in Panama City in
the early 1960's. Seal-
ab 1 was the culmina-.
tion of seven years of
naval study testing' on
the feasibility of satu-
ratiori diving or living
underwater. After it
was built and tested,
the Navy placed Sealab
in 193 feet of water 35
miles southeast of Ber-
muda in 1964. A hurri-
cane shortened the test
from three weeks to 11
days. Sealab was then
returned to Panama
City and ultimately to
the museum.
Recently elected In-
stitute of Diving Presi-
dent Michael Zinszer
is a retired naval diver
and as such has a con-
nection to the museum
as well as the naval dive
school In Panama City.
Zinszer and the school's
commander met re-
cently and decided to
encourage students to
join the institute and
provide manpower to
repair and maintain
the many large exhib-
its and artifacts on loan
from the Navy.
"The museum con-
tains a treasure trove
of United States Naval
, Diving history," Baker
said proudly. "We very
much appreciate the
support of the Navy
Base and we are sure
it will enhance our pri-
mary mission."
The museum is lo-
cated at 17314 Panama
City Parkway in Pana-
ma City Beach and can
be reached by calling
(850) 235-4101. The fa-
cility is open Tuesday
through Sunday from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For

CRuby -looks
By ASHLEY AMASON
"I'm like a bear making'
tracks and not getting' no-
where," laughs Ms. Hooks
when asked how she's doing.
The name Ruby. certainly
becomes her, as she's decked
in red head-to-toe, with a
strand of white beads.
Ruby Hooks resides at
the Chautauqua Rehabili-
tation and Nursing Center
(CRNC), and keeps the staff
and other residents on their
toes with her sharp wit.
Hooks was born in Wal-
ton County, the youngest
of nine children. Her father
died when she was 10 and,
as the baby, she was dearly
attached to her mother. "Ev-
erywhere she went, I want-
ed to go; everywhere she
moved, I wanted to move."
As a young girl, she at-
tended -school in Freeport.
"When I first started, I didn't
like none of it." Eventually
though, she learned to love
reading, and memorized
nursery rhymes, "Humpty
Dumpty" being her favorite.
Unfortunately Hooks
couldn't complete her educa-
tion because her vision be-
gan to diminish in her teens,
and the doctor told her she
couldn't read anymore. At
20, she married her first
husband, and stayed mar-
ried "10 years too long" she
says.
At 30, she married her
late husband, Charlie
Hooks, known only as the
Rev. Boss Hooks. Together
she and Boss Hooks raised
three children.
Hooks loved to cook for
her family, especially South-
ern fried food: "fried fish,


remembers
pork chops, chicken-that's.
what I like to cook." Hooks
also attributes her love of
cooking to her mother. "Now
that woman could cook; ev-r
erybody said she was the
best cook."
On that note, it's lunch-
time at CRNC and as Ms.
Ruby is wheeled to the din-
ing hall, she passes a staff
member and asks, "What
are you standing' over there
looking' like a ol' grizzly bear
for?"
Everyone smiles.

Ask .


Auntie Em
Dear Auntie Em,

Summer is almost over and I didn't even get close to the weight-loss goal I set. Now I
am staring down the holidays and am afraid I'm really going to gain even more weight.
My hubby seems to lose weight at will almost. Why is it so hard for me? I start out with
the best of intentions, but always fail.

Still Chunky in Crestview.
(Name and address withheld upon request)

Dear Chunky,

Well, you are correct. The holidays are the hardest time to stay on a healthy eating
plan and that is why I am going to advise you to do something different. Stop dieting.
Yep, that's right. Put the scales away, stop counting the calories and do one thing, start
exercising. Why? It's the one thing you can conimit to, still enjoy the holidays and do as
little damage as possible.
They say it takes 28 days to ingrain a new habit. If you start a walking plan or home
video plan and stick with it, then when the holidays are over, you will be able to start
working on eating better when temptations are less in the new year. It will also lessen
the stress surrounding the holidays and you won't avoid get-togethers because of food.
The weather is perfect and if y6u start now, you will be closer to your idea of perfect
when all the treats are put away and the new year and the new you begins. Only work-
ing on one thing at a time also helps with your success. So, change how much you move
and change you frame to boot.
Good luck and God bless.

Auntie Em,

Send letters to Auntie Em to dfsherald@gmail.com or to P.O. Box 1546, DeFuniak
Springs, F1.32435

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25,2008

Movie review.


"Righteous Kill" a vehicle built for two


By BRUCE COLLIER
Jon Avnet's "Righteous
Kill" is a textbook example
of a star vehicle. Notably,
two American aces -
Roberto De Niro and Al
Pacino appearing onscreen
together for the first time
since their brief encounter
in 1995's "Heat." Star
vehicles have a tendency to
please few but die-hard fans
of the star. However,
"Righteous Kill" is a twofer
that, despite a bizarre and
twisty story and plot,
delivers the goods. It's a cop
movie/serial killer mystery
set in New York. It's got De
Niro and Pacino, doing
what they can do in their
sleep playing a pair of
burned out homicide
detectives.
DeNiro is Turk and
Pacino is Rooster, and
that's all you know them by,
except that they have been
together a long time, and
that they're fed up. When a
child-killer is acquitted
despite strong evidence,
Turk frames him for
another crime one he


didn't commit using
planted evidence.
Meantime, bodies start
turning up all over town, all
scum-bags, all murdered.
The killer leaves a short
poem near every corpse,
explaining why they were
offed. "We gotta find this
guy," says Turk. "And give
him'a medal," says Rooster.

Two investigators from
another precinct, Detectives
Perez and Riley (John
Leguizamo. and Donnie
Wahlberg) are investigating
a similar crime. The four
join in an uneasy alliance, a
sort of microcosm of
interagency lack-of-
cooperation. When Rooster
observes that the evidence
suggests the killer might be
a policeman, the suspicion
and finger-pointing begins.
"Righteous Kill" is told in
present-time and in
flashback, 'through several
devices voiceovers, a taped
"confession," and one-on-one
conversations between
Turk, Rooster, and an
NYPD shrink. Like any


good mystery, everything
you need to know is shown
or told you all along, and
you have to wait until the
climax to see it all fall
together.
I wanted to like this
movie. Actually, I wanted
to love this movie, if for no
other reason than its star
duo. Given a director like,
say, Martin Scorsese and
the kind of screenwriting
talent that falls his way, it
could have been a
memorable film. As it is,
DeNiro and-Pacino get a lot
of face time together,
tightly-shot close-up scenes
exchanging world-weary
banter. Some of it sounds
improvised, especially from
Pacino, whose trademark
actor trick of riffing on lines
gets a lot of play here.
What appeal the film has
comes from their ease with
these kinds of characters,
and the pleasure of
watching two old pros make
it look easy. Last year's
"The Bucket List" paired
veterans Jack Nicholson
and Morgan Freeman in a


piece that wouldn't have
been nearly as good as it
was without them.
Any movie actor of
stature (by that, I mean the
ones that get a lot of money
and/or accolades),
eventually reaches a point
where he or she is getting
paid for who they are,
rather than what they can
do. How many hard-nosed
cops and robbers have Al
and Bobbie played,
anyway?
Are they stretching that
much anymore? Does
anyone even want them to
stretch that much?
Audiences, maybe.
Producers, for whom the
philosophy seems to be, "if
one is good, a dozen copies,
is 12 times as .good,"
probably not.
The two lead roles are
evenly balanced, and have
first-class support from
Wahlberg and Leguizamo,
Brian Dennehy, as well as
Carla Gugino, playing
Turk's love interest with a
28-year age difference.
That's far short of the 39-


year gap we were asked to
accept between Sean
Connery and Catherine
Zeta-Jones in
"Entrapment," but way to
go anyway, Bobbie.
I'd have been happy to
have waited for the rental

think my time or money
were wasted. I just kept
thinking I'd seen it all
before the premise, the

and facial expressions. Mr.

something for these two
guys?

The Lord took you away from us
we know not why,
But I Know you're with Jesus,
In Heaven, in the sky.
You have no more pain,
Now, I know.
No arthritis or cancer, away it all goes.
Jesus died for us you see,
to live with him, and be pain free.'
And now you're with Jesus,
Mama, Daddy and other angels too.
Celebrating your birthday,
with your body anew.
I love you, sister

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY,

In loving memory of our
precious daughter
-tp. Brandi Lee-Anne Waggoner ^-.
June 1, 1983 September 27, 2005



r- 4--, -----------
t













The moment that I knew you had died
my heart split in two.
The one side filled with memories, the other died with you.
I often lay awake at night, when the world is fast asleep
and take a walk down memory lane
with tears on my cheek.
Remembering you is easy I do it every day 4t
but missing you is a heartache that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart
and there you will remain
Life has gone on without you but it will never be the same.
Each morning when I wake I know that you are gone
and no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on.
My heart still aches with sadness
and secret tears will flow
what it means to lose you
No one will ever know.
My thoughts are always with you,
your place no one can fill. In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still. There will always be a heartache
and often a silent tear but always a precious memory
of the days when you were here.
For those who still have your children
c m Treat them with tender care
I pray you never know the emptiness
As when you turn and... they are not there.
Thank you to all who loved and cared for Brandi. Your
love and continued support is helping us cope and makes
living a little more bearable. The grief we feel cannot be
described, but knowing her friends and ours are thinking
of her with wonderful memories, helps us in ways I can-
not express in words. Please keep remembering her for all
the love and laughter she brought to us all.
a -- Thank you all again for loving Brandi
and may God bless you all!

First Christian Academy class


joins Peace Corps match program


PEACE CORP VOL-
UNTEER DR. MIRANDA
WILKERSON, speaks to
students.


TEACHER CHERELLE WEEKS AND DR. WILKER-
SON pose with students.


On Thursday, September
18, First Christian Acad-.
emy had a guest instructor,
Dr. Miranda Wilkerson, a
native, of DeFuniak Springs,
who spoke on the Peace
Corps experience and the
study of foreign languages,
in Cherelle Weeks' class.
Third-fourth-and fifth-grad-
ers learned about the goals
of the Peace Corps, what ser-
vice as.a volunteer involves,
including the challenges of
learning to be proficient.in a
new language and of assimi-
lating into a culture differ-
ent from their own.
Students had an intro-
ductory language lesson in
both German and Ukrai-
nian. In Ukrainian, they
learned the 33-letter Cyril-


lic alphabet and how to say
basic phrases. In an interac-
tive game, students received
a mock Peace Corps assign-
ment. They not only had to
locate their country of ser-
vice, one in which the Peace
Corps is actually active, but
also make some tough deci-
sions in -preparation for 2.5
years of living abroad.
Imagine, moving tb a dif-
ferent country, one in which
the volunteer must be to-
tally prepared and able to
adapt ,and survive without
the ready network of family
and friends. Students were
told, as is the actual prac-
tice in Peace Corps train-
ing, that they represent the
United States and are quite
possibly the only Americans


..


MOCK ASSIGNMENTS gave students a chance to locate
their country.


to arrive in their assigned
countries of service.
Volunteers, as do mis-
sionaries serving, abroad,
work in various capacities
to help others according to
their skills and education.
Dr. Wilkerson, a former
professor of German and
linguistics, is moving to
Ukraine to work as an Eng-
lish teacher trainer for the
TEFL project. This upper-
level elementary class and
their teacher will take part
in a correspondence-match
program with Dr. Wilkerson
in which they will commu-
nicate monthly by letter of
e-mail in order to learn per-
spectives of 'other cultures
and learn more about their
own culture and how it has


shaped them. Dr. Wilkerson
will work also with JCristen
Rhodes' high school class
in promoting cross-cultural
understanding.

In 1961, President John
F. Kennedy launched the .
Peace Corps, a selective, vol-
unteer program, to promote
understanding between the
United States and other
countries, including its peo-
ple and culture, in addition
to providing help in devel-
oping countries. Since then,
almost 200,000 Americans
have lived and served over-
seas in more than 130 coun-
tries. For more information
about the Peace Corps, visit

James: Old Camel Knees


By Rev. Dr. G. Charles Satterwhite, Pastor


REV DR. G. CHARLES
SATTERWHITE, PASTOR


The effective, fervent
prayer of a righteous man
avails much.
James 5':16
The writer of the book
of James is known in his-
tory as "Old Camel Knee,"
because his knees were re-
portedly callused due to his
frequent prayers.
His core belief about


prayer is summed up in to-
day's verse, which is ren-
dered in the NIV as: "The
prayer of a righteous manis
powerful and effective."
James devotes a great
deal of time to telling us
how not to get our prayers
answered.
He warns us against hin-
drances to prayer.


In chapter 1, he cautions
us not to ask with a doubt-
ful, unbelieving heart. "That
man should not think he
will receive anything from
the Lord" (James 1:7 NIV).
In .chapter 4, James
warned that God will not
answer unsaid prayers. "You
do not have, because you do
not ask God," he wrote.


In addition, the Lord
doesn't answer prayers of-
fered for the wrong rea-
sons-"when you ask, you
do not receive, because you
ask with wrong motives,
that you may spend what
you get on your pleasures"
(James 4:3 NIV).
God longs to answer our
prayers-in fact, He calls


them powerful and effec-
tive-but it's important to
pray with trusting hearts,
specific requests, and godly
motives.
Faith in a prayer-hearing
God will make a prayer-lov-
ing Christian.

How can mini dental implants help denture wearers?
The Mini Dental Implants, which are about the size of wooden
toothpicks, are gently placed into the front of the patient's
upper or lower jaw. It is a relatively painless procedure that the
Doctors of Family Dentistry perform, usually only requiring a
mild anesthesia. Your denture is then carefully adjusted by the
dentist to allow it to snap into the mini implants. The result? A
tight fitting, completely reliable system, that allows you to
speak and eat with confidence.

Blocked punts help Walton earn 36-13 win


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves
turned two blocked punts
into touchdowns against the
Northview Chiefs and post-
ed a 36-13 road victory in a
non-district contest.
Walton built a 23-7 half-
time lead as the Braves
scored on their opening
possession of the game as
senior quarterback Tar-
rell Bramlet threw his first
touchdown pass of the 2008
season with a 30-yard strike
to Issac Jackson for an early
7-0 lead.
A minute into the second
quarter Walton got on the
scoreboard. again as Deon
Lee blocked a punt with


teammate Steven Myrick
scooping up the loose foot-
ball for a 41-yard return
. for a touchdown and a 14-0
lead.
A Northview fumble gave
Walton excellent field posi-
tion at the Chiefs 25-yard
line, but Walton was stopped
on a fourth down quar-
terback sneak by Bramlet
just inches shy of the goal
line. The Walton defense
responded. by recording a
safety as Marrion Holmes
met fullback Shakel Holmes
in the endzone to increase
Walton's lead-to 16-0.
Walton returned the free
kick to the Northview 37-
yard line and increased the


lead to 23-0 on a 15-yard
touchdown pass to Matt El-
lenberg.
Northview did manage a
score of their own as a wide-
out pass allowed the Chiefs
to get into the redzone
against Walton with quar-
terback Jay Jackson cash-
ing in from a yard out to cut
the margin to 23-7.

The Braves increased the
lead to 30-7 on their first pos-
session of the second half as
Issac Jackson scampered in
from eight yards out for his
second score of the night.
Walton then recorded
their second blocked punt of
the night as D'Von Camp-


bell blocked the attempt
and scooped the ball to John
Querisma. who ran 25 yards
for Walton's final score of
the night.
Northview did pick off a
Liam Miller pass and return
it 29 yards to cut the margin
to 36-13 with just over four
minutes to play, but could
never get any closer.
Walton dominated the
line of scrimmage as the
Braves recorded six sacks
and harassed quarterback
Jay Jackson all night long.
Walton (2-1) will travel to
Vernon to face the 2-0 Yel-
lowjackets on September 26
at 7 p.m. in a non-district
contest.

Baker Gators 42-21. Arnold
built a 42-14 lead behind
their running attack as the
Marlins got revenge for a
loss at home to the Gators
last season. The win im-
proved Arnold's record to
3-0 while Baker fell to 2-1
with the loss.
A week after falling to
South Walton by a single
point, Wewahitchka earned
a win with a 26-14 victory
in Cottondale. Wewa forced
three turnovers and Chance
Knowles caught a pair of
touchdown passes while
running in another as the
Gators rallied from an early
6-0 deficit to get the win.
Port St. Joe improved to
1-1 as the Sharks pitched a


25-0 shutout over Blount-
stown at home. Greg Farmer
ran for 109 yards and three
touchdowns as the Sharks
took advantage of special
teams errors by the Tigers
to pick up the win. Blount-
stown muffed a punt to set
up a short touchdown by
Port St. Joe, then roughed
the Sharks' punter later in
the game to keep a drive
alive, that would result in
another score.
Crestview kicker J.T. Ar-
nold saved a homecoming
win for the Bulldogs when
he drilled a 40-yard field goal
with less than two minutes
to play to give the Bulldogs
an uninspiring 5-3 win over
West Gadsden. Pablo Esco-


bar's 35-yard field goal kept
the Panthers on top most of
the game while Crestview
could manage only a safety
on a blocked punt during
the first 46 minutes of the
game.
Sneads jumped out to a
26-7 halftime lead on Frank-
lin County as the Pirates
opened their district slate
with a 40-19 victory over
Franklin County. Sneads
senior Jeff Davis had a
memorable night. He ran for
125 yards and a touchdown
while returning a kickoff
80 yards for a score. Davis
wasn't done, he picked off
three Seahawk passes on
defense as Sneads grabbed
a home victory.

'UNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25,2008


By PATRICK CASEY
Cross country season
opened last week for area
schools as Walton hosted
the first meet of the sea-
son. Paxton captured first
place in the boys competi-
tion with Freeport doing so
on the girls' side. Freeport's
Michael Graziani took first
place individually as he
posted a time-of 17:48. Wal-
ton's Lindsey Phillips took
first place in the girls indi-
vidual competition with a
time of 25:21. Paxton hosted
the second meet on Monday
with Paxton winning the
boys competition and Free-
port again taking the girls'
side.
The Walton volleyball
team improved to 8-2 with
a three set sweep of North-
view last week. Walton fol-
lowed that performance up
by posting a 3-1 record at
the Gulf Coast Community


College Invitational. Walton
defeated Panama City Boze-
man, Sneads and Chipley
while losing to Wakulla. The
Braves are now 11-3 overall
and 2-0 in the district. The
Braves are set for a show-
down at Pensacola Catholic
on Thursday at 7 p.m.
Freeport lost a district
match to Baker last week in
five sets as the Gators ral-
lied after losing the first two
sets for the victory. Key to
the Baker comeback was an
injury to Freeport's Heather
Moore, who left the game
with an injury to her right
leg in the third game. Free-
port had defeated Baker
to start the season, so the
season series is split at one
match apiece, and almost
assuredly will see the two
teams face each other in Jay
in the district tournament fi-
nal in late October. Freeport
is 8-3 on the season and will


host Crestview on Thursday
at 6 p.m.
South Walton's volleyball
team continues to struggle
as the Seahawks fell at Pen-
sacola Catholic last week.

seniors on the team, are 0-8
this year. South Walton will
host Northview on Thurs-
day at 6 p.m.

Bayou last week 20-6.
The Walton golf team con-
tinues a strong' start to the
2008 season as the Braves
garnered a second place
finish out of four teams in
Crestviewin a 9-hole match
held at Adara Golf Club.
Walton finished five strokes
behind Choctaw as Paul
McClure led the way with
a 38 while Heath Morgan
posted a 39. Hunter Kirby


delivered a 41 with Devin
Partridge adding a 44. Wal-
ton took home a sixth-place
finish out of 25 teams in the
Miracle Strip Invitational
on Thursday as the Braves
shot a 310 in the 18-hole
match. Fort Walton Beach
took first place by shooting
a 292 as a team. Paul Mc-
Clure posted the third best
*score of the tourney with a
70. Devin Partridge shot a
78 with Heath Morgan card-
ing an 80 and Clay Cawthon
an 82.
The South Walton golf
team also had a busy week
as they defeated Freeport
179-221. Blake Ruden led
the 9-hole match with a 38


while Dylan Smith shot a
43. Billy Davis carded a 44
with Jake Vermillion post-
ing a 54. South Walton de-
feated Panama City Arnold
at the Santa Rosa Country
Club 185-198. Ruden led the
way with a 39 while Dylan
Smith added a 40 and Billy
Davis a 43. Brandon Barrett
added a 63. The Seahawks
placed 21st out of 25 at the
Miracle Strip Invitational as
Billy Davis led the way with
a 76. Blake Ruden posted an

ing an 88 and Jake Vermil-
lion a 109.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS Kiwanis Club's Students of the month for September

Size-limit changes proposed for Gulf amberjack and triggerfish


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) on Thursday-
proposed raising the mini-
mum harvest size for greater
amberjack and gray trigger-
fish in Gulf of Mexico state
waters.. The FWC is propos-


ing these rule changes to be
consistent with new regula-
tions in Gulf federal waters,
which extend beyond nine
nautical miles offshore of
Florida.

Federal fisheries manag-


ers recently implemented
a stock rebuilding plan for
greater amberjack and gray
triggerfish in Gulf federal
waters. Greater amberjack
in the Gulf are considered.
to be overfished (low stock
abundance) and undergoing


overfishing (excessive har-
vesting pressure), and gray
triggerfish in the Gulf are
considered to be undergoing
overfishing.

The FWC is proposing
rule amendments consistent


with the Gulf federal regula-
tions by increasing the rec-
reational minimum harvest
size for .greater amberjack
from 28 to 30 inches fork
length and increasing the
commercial and recreation-
al minimum harvest size for


gray triggerfish from 12 to
14 inches fork length in 'Gulf
state waters.

A final public hearing on
the proposed rule amend-
ments will be held in De-
cember in Key West.


FWC proposes Gulf gag and red grouper rule changes


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
!mission (FWC) on Thursday
proposed rule amendments
for gag grouper in Gulf of
Mexico state waters to be
consistent with anticipated
regulations in Gulf federal
waters. In Addition, the
FWC is proposing to allow
Florida recreational anglers


to harvest more red grouper
in Gulf 'state waters.
A recent stock assess-
ment indicated that Gulf gag
grouper is undergoing over-
fishing (excessive harvest-
ing pressure) and harvest
levels must be reduced. In-
terim federal regulations to
address this situation are
expected to be implemented


in January in Gulf waters
beyond nine nautical miles
offshore,. and the FWC is
proposing gag grouper rule
amendments for state wa-
ters that are consistent with
the federal.regulations.
These rules would estab-
lish a two-fish per person
recreational daily bag limit


for gag grouper within the
five-grouper aggregate limit
in Gulf state waters, and
prohibit the recreational
harvest of gag grouper from
Gulf state waters from Feb.
1 through March 31. Cur-
rently, recreational fishers
in the Gulf are allowed to
keep up to five gag grouper
daily, and there is no recre-


national closed season.
The FWC is also propos-
ing a rule amendment that
would increase the recre-
ational daily bag limit for
red grouper in Gulf state'
waters from one -fish per
person to two beginning
Jan. 1. A recent stock as-
sessment concluded that the
Gulf red grouper stock has


recovered enough to allow
an increase in harvest lev-
els, and it is expected that
the recreational red grouper
bag limit in Gulf federal wa-
ters will be increased to two
fish sometime in 2009.
A final public hearing on
these proposed rule amend-
ments will be held in De-
cember in Key West.

Seahawks move to 3-0 with 28-27 win


By PATRICK CASEY
For the second consecu-
tive week the South Walton
Seahawks pulled out a one
point win as Hunter Infin-
ger broke up a pass play on
a two-point conversion at-
tempt to give. the visiting
Seahawks a 28-27 victory
and the school's first ever
3-0 start in the sport of foot-
ball.
The win saw the Sea-
hawks rally from a 13-0
deficit late in the first half
to take a 14-13 lead as
South Walton scored a pair
of touchdowns in the final


three minutes of the first
half. Infinger caught a 36-
yard scoring strike from
Cody Adams to cut the
Bucks lead to 13-7 with 2:36
left in the first half. On the
first play from scrimmage
on Bozeman's next posses-
sion, quarterback Travis
Register was picked off by
Kyle Stewart at the Boze-
man 23-yard line. The Sea-
hawks converted moments
later as Adams hit David
Bazylak on a 14-yard pass
to give the Seahawks a one-
point advantage.
Bozeman did not let


South Walton keep the lead
long as the Bucks went right
down the field using their
passing game as Regsiter
rallied with a 12-yard .pass
to Jace Wade with 15 sec-
onds left in the first half to
give the host team a 21-14
lead at the break.
After a scoreless third
quarter, South Walton put
together a five-play, 65-
yard drive that was capped
by Bryant Adams. 1-yard
plunge to fie the game at 21-
21.
The Seahawks took the
lead with an eight-plav. 59-


yard drive as Cody Adams
drove in from a yard out
to give South Walton their
first lead of the game at 28-
21 with 2:36 left in the con-
test.
Bozeman responded with
a 66-yard drive that took
only 71 seconds as Regis-
ter hit several passes that
marched the home team
down the field. Tyler Grier
capped the quick-moving
drive with an 18-yard recep-
tion for the touchdown. The
Bucks passed on tying the
game with an extra point at-
tempt and went for the two-
point conversion. Infinger
broke up a pass in the right
flat with 1:25 remaining to
preserve the 28-27 advan-
tage.
The Seahawks got the ball
after a failed-onside kick at-
tempt and ran out the clock
to improve to 3-0.
South Walton will return
home to open district play
by hosting the Baker Ga-
tors at 7 p.m. Baker is 2-1
after falling to Panama City
Arnold 42-21 last Friday
night.

Mosquito Control meeting



looks into garlic, solar power


By LEAH STRATMANN
Even routine matters at
the South Walton Mosquito
Control District (SWMCD)
meetings, are now fraught
with tension. At the meeting
of the board last week after
the innovation and pledge it
was time for approval of the
'August minutes.
Board chairman 'Jim
Crawford asked to table
.the approval of the minutes
stating he had contacted the
board's attorney, Lori Bytell


several times and his calls
were not returned. "This is
the second time you've let
me down and I'm not hap-
py," Crawford said. Craw-
ford did not elaborate oh
why he wanted clarification
on the minutes.
Attorney Bytell apolo-
gized for her failure to re-
turn his calls,. saying she
had been extremely busy.
Crawford said he is seek-
ing second attorney opinions
for a number, of unspecified


items, but as there is a ques-
tion of cost, he was seeking
the board's permission to
see another attorney. Craw-
ford said he is not satisfied
with Bytell and wants to put
the board attorney position
out for bid, He then made a
motion to submit a request
for proposals for a board at-
torney. The motion passed.
Board member John Ma-
gee said the board should
conduct a search every few
years anyway ahd encour-


aged Bytell to submit a pro-
posal as well.
At the request of several
citizens in the mosquito
board district, the board has
purchased concentrated gar-.
lic juice to test its effective-
ness as a mosquito barrier.
Another test project will
be to test mosquito traps
powered with solar power
rather than electricity.
"Solar prices have really
dropped and will continue to
drop and the batteries have


gotten better. If it's not go-
ing to work, it's not going to
work, but we might as well
give it a try," commented
Magee. r
"I know we can't convert
all of them at once, but we
can do it a little. of time,"
Crawford said. "I think the
public would like to see use
of solar out there."
In a final bit of business,
a budget of $1,961,092 was
approved for fiscal 2008-
2009.

Bay PUD


denied
By DOTTY NIST
Plans for an RV park and
a future 100-plus-foot-tall
condominium were derailed
on Sept. 22 when the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) yoted
unanimously to deny the
Jolly Bay PUD, which had
been proposed for the Free-
port area.
The decision followed
three separate public hear-
ing sessions, each lasting
several hours. There was

Advisory committee making

animal welfare recommendations


By DOTTY NIST
After a' series of meet-
ings devoted to discussion
on several topics, the Wal-
ton County Animal Control
Advisory Committee got
started last week on recom-
mendations that will be pre-
sented to county commis-
sioners at a future date.
The 10-member commit-
tee approved a number of
recommendations and soon
will vote on more. County
commissioners may opt to
adopt any of these as revi-
sions to the Walton County
Animal,, Control Ordinance
with the aim of improving
animal welfare and safety.
The ordinance is devoted to
dogs, cats and ferrets only.
Recommendations ap-
proved at the committee's
Sept. 17 meeting focused on
three of the areas assigned
to the committee for consid-


eration, feral cats, spaying
and neutering, and care and
sheltering of animals.
Among recommendations
approved by the committee
on feral cats were public
service announcements and
signs placed in public areas,
buildings and businesses
stating that it is illegal to
abandon an animal and that
violators are subject to fines
up to $5,000. In addition,
.the committee recommend-
ed county support of feral
cat "trap and release" pro-
grams through the seeking
of grants and other means.
Another' recommendation
on this topic was a require-
ment for secure outdoor
trash receptacles at homes
and businesses.
With regard to spaying
and neutering, there was
unanimous agreement on a
recommendation for a twice-


a-year program providing
this service on a voluntary
basis as a cooperative effort
of the county, nonprofits and
local veterinarians.
Also recommended were
public education campaigns
on spaying and neutering.
With regard to animal
care and sheltering, the
committee voted to recom-
mend importing the related
portion of Okaloosa County's
animal control ordinance
with minor modifications.
The committee will con-
vene at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 1
to take up recommendations
on the topics of.cruelty, pup-
py mills and dangerous ani-
mals. Community members
are invited to attend, but
public comment is no longer
being taken as recommen-
dations are proposed and
approved. The 'location for
these meetings is the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.


THE WELFARE and safety of animals has been the fo-
cus of Walton County's Animal Control Advisory Committee
since being created in May by the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners. The committee will be presenting
the commissioners with recommendations for revision of the
county's animal control ordinance.

A couple of weeks ago,
our esteemed editor wrote.
he was a newspaperman
and thus a cynic, begging
the question of which came
first? Does a cynic by nature
become a newsman or does
a newsman become a cynic
by nature of the work? It's
one of those chicken and:
egg debates which cannot
be decided by mere mortals,
but one thing is certain: in
terms of politics, the media,
including newspaper people,
are regarded as the enemy.

Somewhere along 'the
line,. the word liberal has
lost its true meaning, which
is being open to new behav-
ior or opinions, respectful of
individual rights, and free-.
doms,, and giving freely. It
is an adjective, as in, "He
liberally \laced the aromat-
ic coffee with- a fine Irish
whiskey," and has become
a noun, meaning a tax-levy-
ing, flag-burning, card-car-
rying ACLU member and.
enemy of conservatives.
Oddly, the word conserva-
tive has retained its mean-
ing. It is entirely possible to
be a liberal, i.e. a giving per-
son with conservative views,
but to hear politicians fell it,
all media has been painted
with the nasty liberal brush.
How then do we explain the
likes of Rush Limbaugh,
Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity
,and Bill O'Reilly? These
people are big-time media
and nobody could rightly
label them as liberal in any
sense of the word. They rant
and rave and level accusa-
tions. O'Reilly lambasted
the mother of Jamie Lynn
Spears when the teenager
became pregnant, call-
ing her unfit to parent and
worse. Yet, when it came
to Sarah Palin's daughter,
it was a family matter not
fit for discussion. Thus it
is fine for Palin to have a
grandchild less than a year
younger than her young-
est child, because Palin is
nominally on the same side
as O'Reilly.
The worst part about
.this division of views is the
schism it has created. Peo-
ple no longer will sit still
long enough to hear oppos-
ing views, opting instead to
shout them down or prevent
them from being present-
ed at all. A few years ago,
Vice-President Cheney told
a member of the Senate to
perform an anatomical im-
possibility on himself, prob-
ably marking a first in the
Congressional Record.
When incivility rules, ev-
eryone loses. There is noth-
ing more informative than
hearing two or more views
of one thing. Take the issue
of capital punishment for in-
stance. On the one hand, I
think people should be pun-
ished according to the nature


of the crime, but do other or-
dinary people have the right
to impose the death penalty
on another human being?
For myself, I'd rather be
executed swiftly than spend
15 to 20 years in prison
waiting for all my appeals to
be run out, even if I was not
guilty.1I think it is more hu-
mane and certainly far more
cost-effective for justice to
be swift. So my personal
answer is I just don't know.
For some criminals, I think
I could insert the needle,
yet there, have been many
people on "death row .who
simply were not guilty, so
the lengthy appeal process
saved them. What exactly is
the right answer?
There are still a few
around who engage in spir-
ited' and respectful diver-
gences of thought. Mossy
Head's Tom Terrell thinks
I'm the Nancy Pelosi of Wal-
ton County, which couldn't
be further from the truth.
He thinks this because I've
written I'm no fan of George

W. Bush, guns, or Sarah
Palin. What I am is a mod-
erate populist. I want our
elected leaders to do what
is in the best interest of the
most people, which I think
is really the description of
the.majority of us. We want
our tax money spent wisely.
The cool thing about Tom
is he is willing to listen to
opposing views with an
open mind even though he
clearly will not change his.,
.He doesn't belittle or ridi-
cule the views of the opposi-
tion, even though he clearly
thinks we,hae lost, our way,.
In this, he is in the minority
because civil discourse has
gone the way of the drive-in
movie.
One thing the current po-
litical season has brought
to the forefront is a sense of
impish deviousness. One of
the things currently roar-
ing around the Internet is
the suggestion that folks do-

Planned Parenthood, was,
designed primarily for re-

again, its true nature has
been all but erased with the
debate about reproductive
choice. The irony of send-

individual who opposes sex

which clearly failed, is just
too funny and, the best part
is it will help many in the

enhance, Freeport Walton
County," Maxwell asserted.
"We have spent over
$500,00 to this point to-
night," Maxwell said regard-
ing the project.
She noted that an appli-
cation for the PUD was sub-
mitted to the county in June
2007, with plans for the
condominium at 207 feet in
height. The first neighbor-
hood objection to the proj-
ect was raised at- a Walton
County Technical Review
Committee meeting in Au-
gust 2007, she recalled.
Subsequently the appli-
cants reduced the size of the
proposed condominium to
147 feet in height, and on
Aug. 14, 2007, the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion recommended approval
by unanimous vote.
Included in Phase I of
the proposal were 55 RV
units, a 1,500-square-foot
camp store, a 1,230-square-
foot laundry/shower, and a
swimming pool with splash
pad. Approval was also re-
quested for a conceptual
master plan consisting of
the condominium, a restau-
rant, a bakery/coffee shop, a
20-unit bed and breakfast,
office, retail, and a 49-slip
boat dock. The only request
for a development order
was for Phase I, with future
phases to come back for con-
sideration by commissioners
- in public hearing.
"This project is compat-
ible and will be compatible.
over time," testified Buddy
Page, a planning expert rep-
resenting the applicants.
"I think in every planner's
mind this is a rural area...I
think we're looking at an ur-
ban design in a rural area,"
countered District 5 Com-
missioner Cindy Meadows.
"This application meets
all the requirements of the
plan and code," argued Bob
Apgar, and attorney .repre-
senting Jolly Bay PUD.
"This is a transitional
zone...it's going to change
over time," he said of the
property.
Meadows agreed that
there would be change but
added, "it will look much
like south Walton looks
now... different from a high-
rise village."
A county staff report by
planner Tim Brown stated
that the proposal did meet
all county code and: plan
provisions with the excep-
tion of the height of the con-
dominium. The planning
department recommended
a height of 75 to 100 feet as
acceptable for the condo, in
view of wetlands protection
being afforded by the proj-


ect. However, as stated by
Lois La Seur, county plan-
ning manager, 100 feet was
considered "pushing the en-
velope."
La Seur also testified, "It
stuns me," that the appli-
cants had not anticipated
"that height was not going
to be ani itsue." She said she
had indicated this to them
early on in meetings be-
tween them and planners.
"I do not feel the [land
use] category supports ur-
ban design," testified Pat
Blackshear, county plan-
ning and development ser-
vices director.
However, south Walton
County resident and devel-
oper Tom Patton spoke in fa-
vor of the 12-story building.
"I think 147 feet will impact
less of the land and give you
a better looking building,"
he commented.
Charles Murphy, owner
of property near the pro-
posed development, also
had positive comments. "We
should all be looking toward
the future," he said.
"It's gonna stick out like
a sore thumb," countered
Freeport area resident Mur-
ray Balkcom.
"I encourage you to go
'back and think about the
reasons you created a 50-foot
height limit for all of Walton
County and base your deci-
sion on that," he urged the
commissioners.
Shady Lane resident
Richard Brantley relayed
the objection of 38 home-
owners in his subdivision.
Meadows motioned for ap-
proval with over 20 attached
conditions that included
concessions by the appli-
cants, among them paving
of access roads, providing of
turtle-type lighting,,and do-
nation of right-of-way. Her
motion included a require-
ment for the applicants to
undergo public hearings for
all new phases and a limit of
75-100 feet on the height of
the condo, subject to it not
being relocated on the prop-
erty.
After a comment from
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon that in his
opinion the applicants had
not demonstrated that their
plan was appropriate for the
Rural Village land use clas-
sification, Meadows with-
drew her motion.
Brannon then moved for
denial, and District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander
seconded.

The motion was approved
in a 5-0 unanimous vote, re-
sulting in failure of the pro-
posal.

NWFSC Site Plan with Highlights.


SOUTH WALTON CENTER site work shown here.


New EOC Arena and


South Walton Center


construction begins


The governing board of
Northwest Florida State
College recently received
updates from the architects
in charge of construction
for the Community Services
Complex on the Niceville
campus, the college's new
South Walton Center and
the campus master-plan.
The NWF State College
Board of Trustees also took
action related to various
construction projects and
other matters at the board's
Sept.16 meeting.
A 120,000 square foot
joint use facility, the Com-
munity Services C6mplex
will house a new Okaloosa
County 911 Emergency
Operations Center, a 2,400
seat college. basketball are-
na, a new wellness center,
ROTC facilities and other
instructional spaces. Mas-
sive concrete footers for the
foundation of the building
are currently being poured
and a system of 236 geother-
mal wells is being drilled for
installation of an energy
efficient heating and cool-


. ing system. Sitting on a 28
acre portion of the 265 acre
Niceville campus, the facil-
ity will be hardened to with-
stand 190-mile-per-hour
winds so that it can also be
used as the county's primary
hurricane shelter.
David Alsop with Sam
Marshall Architects of Pen-*
sacola presented the update
on the Community Services
Complex to trustees and
noted that the project, con-
structed by Speegle Con-
struction, Inc. of Niceville,
is on track for anticipated
completion by July 2010.
Alsop also briefed trustees
on adjustments to the main
campus entrances and road-
ways as part of the Niceville
campus master plan. The
main campus entrance will
be aligned with the traffic
light at Palm Boulevard and
the campus loop road will
be altered to improve traf-
fic. flow. Alsop noted that
completion of a new west-
ern portion of the loop road
has been moved up in the
construction timeline and is


now slated for completion in
January 2009.
Charlie Clary from DAG
Architects in Destin present-
ed an update to trustees on
construction of the college's
seventh location in South
Walton County. Site work
is -nearing completion and
foundation footers are slat-
ed to be poured by the end
of September. The center is
located on a nearly 30 acre
site on U.S. 331, just north
of U.S. 98. The first phase
of construction, now under-
way by Trammell Construc-
tion of Pensacola, consists
of four buildings all under
the same roofing structure
with about 11,000 square
feet of administrative and
classroom space. The South
Walton Center will be the
college's second facility in
Walton County, and one of
five centers that are associ-
ated with the college's two
main campuses in Niceville
and Fort Walton Beach. It is

New NWF State College seal and logo announced


When the local Board of
Trustees officially renamed
Okaloosa-Walton College
as Northwest Florida State
College at its July 2008
meeting, the wheels were
set in' motion for other
changes necessary to reflect
the school's role as part of
Florida's new State College
System. At the board's Sept.
16 meeting, college trustees
voted to approve a new seal
for the college the formal
symbol that is used on diplo-
mas and official documents.
Also announced by the col-
lege was as new logo, which
will be the primary visual
symbol of NWF State Col-
lege and used on everything
from stationary to T-shirts.
After soliciting design
ideas from both inside and
outside the college, original
art work by Benjamin Gill-
ham, a Professor of Graphic
Design at Northwest Florida
State College, was chosen
for both of the new visual
images of NWF State Col-
lege. Gillham, who teaches
everything from graphic
design to photography and
multimedia, noted that he
took inspiration fr6m the col-
lege's history and expanded
mission as a state college to
design the new college seal
and logo.
"We are so pleased that
the work of one of our tal-
ented professors was cho-
sen for these new college
symbols," said Dr. Bob
Richburg, college president.
Richburg noted that the new
college seal retains the 1963


NFS college new square logo.


founding date and the motto
"Educatio Optima". from the
original OWJC seal. "All
other design elements used
in both the seal and logo are
unique motifs that reflect
our expanded role as a state
college," Richburg said.
As a central element, the
new NWF State College seal
contains an artistic render-
ing of the "Seven Daricers"
sculpture, an architectural
feature on the college's main
campus in Niceville created
by Esther Wertheimer. Gill-
ham noted that inclusion of
the Seven Dancers reflects
both a visual image of the


NFS college new seal.


college as well as a symbolic
statement of the college's
mission as the diversity
of ages, gender and ethnic-
ity represent the diverse
student population of more
than 15,000 students at
NWF State College.

"The dancers are set
against a backdrop of a ris-
ing sun to represent the
State of Florida and the
light of knowledge," said
Gillham. "The dancers reach
upwards toward seven stars
which are placed in the sky
in the geographic location
of the college's seven area


campuses and centers."
Gillham also created a
new logo for the college, an
abstract design that incor-
porates the unique propor-
tions of the Northwest Flori-
da coastline to represent the
college's expanded service
area. The logo and varia-
tions of it will be the primary
visual symbol for the college
seen by the public, used on
everything from college let-
terhead to imprinted items
such as T-shirts or mugs.
"The arc design central
to the logo was created as a
freehand artistic interpreta-
tion of the coastline as seen


from satellite imagery," said
Gillham. "The arc is in for-
ward motion to symbolize
the positive future created
for students through the
pursuit of higher educa-
tion."
According to Gillham,
the arc due to its abstract
nature may also be in-
terpreted as an open book,
representing the foundation
of the educational process
or waves in water -indicat-
ing the college's proximity
to the Gulf of Mexico. "You
may also see a bird in flight,
. which I think speaks to the
college's connection with


the Doolittle Raiders who
trained at Eglin. for their
historic air mission during
WWII, and for which the
college's athletic mascot,
Raiders, is named," said
Gillham.
The logo design also
echoes many of the architec-
tural features of the main
campus in Niceville, includ-
ing the arcing water feature
at the Learning Resources
Center (LRC), and the prom-
inent arcs included, in the
LRC building, the Science
building, and the Mattie
Kelly Arts Center. College
officials noted that the new.
visual images are the prop-
erty of Northwest Florida
State College and may not
be used without permission
of the college.
