Freeport approves



new post office plan


By JEFFREYPOWELL
A special meeting was
held on Monday, Sept. 29,
at the-Freeport City Hall
to discuss a proposed plan
to build a new post office on
U.S. 331 just north of the
SR-20 intersection. The sub-
ject had been brought before
the City Council at their
regular meeting on Thurs-


day, Sept. 25. During that
meeting, Council members
appeared to be against the
new site, due to constituent
concerns for traffic safety
and the distance from Free-
port proper. Freeport May-
or Mickey Marse pointed
out at Thursday's meeting
that the site selected by the
United States Postal Ser-
vice (USPS) was the stick-


ing point, not the need for a
new facility.
"Everybody here would
like to see us get a new post
office," said Marse. "But we
have heard a lot of com-
plaints about the location
chosen by the postal ser-
vice."
On Thursday, opinions
both for and against the
building site were heard;


and Councilman Earl King
made a motion to approve
the project. The motion died
for lack of a second. Council-
man Charlie Simmons later
made a motion to hear from
citizens on Monday so the
Council could make a more
educated decision.

Without sheriff's
increase

County

finalizes

budget

By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) approved the 2008-
2209 budget after much dis-
cussion over Walton County
Sheriff Ralph Johnson's re-
quest for additional funds to
meet payroll for 10 employ-
ees, several more than had
been approved for hiring by
the BCC.
The BCC voted 4-1 to
approve the budget at
$111,409,645. Commission-
er Cindy Meadows dissented
from the group and voted no
because of the WCSO payroll
issues. The county millage
rate was adopted at 3.3563.
The aggregate village rate
coufity wide is 3.3913 mills,
which is less than the roll
back rate of 3.7248 by 8.95
percent.
Walton County Finance
.Director Bill Imfeld present-
ed the budget resolution for
the BCC. He told the com-
missioners that due to the
anticipated $833,000 cut an-
ticipated by the state in less
sales tax revenue, the county
had been tasked to try and
find a way to replace these
funds. Imfeld said, "Two

County declines grant support for truck stop


By DOTTYNIST
Both the owners of the
former Lucky 13 Truck Stop
and Walton County com-
missioners are in favor of
the business reopening, but
on Sept. 23 commissioners
could not see their way clear
to support a grant applica-
tion to make that happen.
The business, now known
as the Great American
Travel Center, is in the
Mossy Head area. It is not
currently in operation.
The sticking point is the
Green Acres Road Wastewa-
ter Treatment Plant, which
serves the truck stop prop-
erty. The commissioners
say it has not been operated
properly by the business
owners.
At the Sept. 23 Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing, John S. Platt appeared
before the commissioners on
behalf of Great American
Travel Center owner Roger
McCombs with the request
that they support a Con-
munity Development Block
Grant (CDBG) submission
for revitalization of the cen-
ter.
Platt noted that no
matching funds from the
county would be required in
connection with the grant.
The grant funds would al-
low business owners to
make improvements re-
quired to reopen the center,
he told the commissioners.
He added that the center
had realized $730,000 in the
year prior to its closing and
would provide about 100
low-to-medium-income jobs
for operation of the gas sta-
tion, motel, and hopefully a
restaurant as well.
County Administrator


'Ronnie Bell commented that
his recommendation would
be that the county assist
with the grant submission
only on the condition that
the business owners resolve
issues related to.the waste-
water treatment plant.
Bell explained that. Wal-
ton Count. had acquired a
previous grant to fund con-
struction of the wastewater
plant. He added that a con-
dition of that grant applica-
tion was that the county be
the permit-holder for the
plant, even though the busi-
ness owners were to own
and operate the plant.
In summer 2007, the
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
imposed a $41,000 fine on
the county, as permit-hold-


er, due to alleged violations
with the wastewater treat-
ment plant.
DEP allowed the county
to resolve the charges with
an in-kind project to im-
prove the environment, but
the commissioners voted at
that time to seek transfer
of the plant permit to the
business owners and to seek
reimbursement for expenses
involved with the alleged
violations. A year later,
neither of those things has
come to pass.
County Commission
Chairman Larry Jones re-
called that, after being con-
tacted by DEP last year,
the county had brought the.
wastewater treatment plant
back into compliance.
Bell reported that DEP


had again raised compliance
issues with the wastewater
plant and was requiring a
response by Sept. 27. He
said that there had been no
fines as yet with the recent
violation charges.
W.C. Henry, county legal
counsel, said the receiver-
ship that owned the busi-
ness at the time the previous
issues were being resolved
did not want to take over
the permit from the county.
Platt indicated that Mc-
Combs had been one of the
members of the receiver-
ship.
Attorney Henry contin-
ued that now "the holding
basins are full of wastewa-
ter" that needs pumping out,
and that DEP will not allow
the permit to be transferred


while there are compliance
issues.
"We can abandon the
permit," Bell told the com-
missioners. However, he
explained, the county would
still be required to pay any
outstanding fines, and it
would take eight, to nine
months for a new applicant
to get the permit reinstat-
ed.
"Mr. McCombs gave us
his word he would take
care of this," Bell said of the
wastewater treatment plant
situation.
District 5 Commissioner
Cindy Meadows moved to
deny the request for support
of the grant application,
based on nonperformance of

Investigation continues



into suspicious package


On Sept. 25, the Holmes
County Sheriffs Office re-
sponded to .the, city, hall, in
Ponce de Leon after receiv-
ing a call concerning a sus-
picious package..Deputies
that responded to the call
agreed that the package
could contain some type of
explosive device, whereupon
they immediately evacu-
ated the building and set
up a perimeter. The Federal
Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco
and Firearms (ATF) was
contacted and responded
to the scene along with the
Bay County Sheriffs Office
Bomb Squad.
A remote control ro-
bot belonging to the bomb
squad entered the building
and x-rays of the packages
were obtained. The pack-
age was later determined
to be non-threatening with
its contents consisting of
aluminum cans stuffed with
copper wire. The package
was addressed to "The City
of Ponce De Leon, City Park,
c/o City Hall Recycle Pro-
gram." The package did not
contain any explosive mate-
rials or any type of written


message.
The sheriffs office is
working.with.the U.S. Post-
al Inspector's Office on fol-


lowingup with the investi-
gation. An Arkansas man is
"a person of interest' in the
case. At this time there is


no known link between the
"person of interest" and the
city "of Pofce de Leon or its
employees.

School enrollment



figures up


By ASHLEYAMASON
School enrollment figures
for Walton county schools
have remained fairly con-
sistent over the past four
school-years. The only con-


siderable change is the slight
decrease in Maude Saun-
ders and West DeFuniak
Elementary enrollment, due
to the new Mossy Head El-
ementary School opening.


However, school enrollment
figures total over 7,000 stu-
dents for the 2008-09 school
year, showing considerable
growth since 2005.


Miller votes



against bailout bill


* The financial bailout on
Wall Street is in the fore-
,ground of national news.
In northwest Florida, U.S.
'Representative Jeff Miller
voted against the bailout.
In a statement released
after the vote, Rep. Miller
explained his vote, saying,
"We are now confronted by
a serious crisis in our finan-
cial markets. American and
world financial markets are
reacting to corporate greed,
corruption, and the failure
of this administration to
protect the American tax-
payer.
"The panic in the mar-
ket did not have to happen.
Secretary Paulson brought
a request to Congress for a
blank check with no over-
sight. He then spread panic
throughout the marketplace,
basically begging for Con-
gress to bail out his friends
at Wall Street. He should
be ashamed. So should SEC
Chairman Chris Cox who
'threw fuel on the fire' when
he changed the rules to all
the gamblers on Wall Street
to game the system, make
millions, and dump' the
problem on the backs of the
taxpayers.
"Many of my conserva-


tive colleagues in the House
worked hard to make this
bill better than the Paul-
son proposal. But the fact
remains; this legislation
fundamentally changes the
relationship between the
government and the free
market, and burdens the
taxpayer with a $700 billion
price tag.
"We cannot sacrifice the
long-term freedom of this
country for short-term fi-
nancial gain. For these rea-
sons, I voted 'No' on this leg-
islation."

Guest Editorial Comment


Amason's


angle

By ASHLEY AMASON

The lack of customer service in today's market is as
astonishing as the superfluity of rudeness and apathy.
What happened to "Hi,' how are you?" Or "Thank you, have
.a nice day"? Now, a cashier, server, or manager barely
makes eye contact, much less an effort at congeniality.
Most of us have dealt with the 'death of customer ser-
vice phenomenon' while calling 800 numbers, or trying to
bargain with huge corporations, but in small towns like
those here in Walton county, we like to think we maintain
manners and courtesy while sipping our sweet tea or cher-
ry coke- just a regular Mayberry type of town immune to
Sthe crass and uncouth illness of insolence that's sweeping
America. And while most of us wave and smile at acquain-
tances and always speak to friends, the phenomenon -has
invaded even our little town.
I once sat through an entire meal at a long-established,
popular DeFuniak Springs restaurant in which the server
did not once make eye contact with my guest or me. In fact,
the server did not even speak. She simply came to our table
with pad in hand and by her annoyed stare at the wall im-
plied it was time for us to order..
I had my oil changed at the local supercenter. When I
picked up my car, I noticed my CD case was missing, with
all 75 of my CDs. I immediately spoke to a store manager
who blatantly accused me of lying, saying no one would
have stolen my CDs. Funny, they were in my car when I
dropped it off, and gone when I picked it up.
I made an appointment at a fairly new salon in DeEuniak
that's all the rage. When I arrived for my appointment, the
woman who greeted me as I walked in the door stared at me
as if I had 16 heads. "Ummm, can I help you?" she smacked.
"Yes, I have an appointment at 11," I replied. She informed
me it was impossible for me to have an appointment. I told
her I called earlier in the week and made my appointment.
She then asked whom I spoke with and, when I didn't know,
she was aggravated with me. Finally, a woman came out of
the back of the salon and said my appointment was the day
before and I hadn't shown up. When I disagreed and stated
someone must've written my appointment on the wrong
day, she accused me of lying and snapped; "Well, there's
nothing we can do for you." I simply replied "Thank you for
your professionalism."
I know at least 15 people who have either discontinued
or refused their business with that salon because of the way
they treated me.
Don't businesses know word-of-mouth is the most power-
ful form of advertising? (Especially in a,small town.)
What happened to customer service? Why has "you're wel-
come" been replaced with "whatever"? When did .being
courteous and valuing' the customer go out of style, or bet-
ter yet, out of business? I won't even ask what happened to
'the customer is always right'. In fact, I'll give that one to
the companies sometimes the customer isn't always right.
Sometimes the customer has had a bad day at work, been
cut-off in traffic, missed lunch and just wants to get home.
But regardless, shouldn't companies always treat the cus-
tomer right?
Why are we willing to pay $4 for a chicken sandwich at
Chic-Fil-A when it's less than one dollar at McDonalds? For
me, it's because they're nice. Plain and simple. "My plea-
sure" and "Have a blessed day" are worth my three dol-
lars.
The decline in customer service began, according to some,
in the 1980s with the "me first" movement. Dennis Parker
for WTN News, Wisconsin, wrote an article titled "Death
of Customer Service" in May 2003. In the article, Parker
addresses the attitude of customer service representatives
after the 1980s.
"[P]eople, today, are comfortable with saying 'No prob-
lem' rather than 'You're welcome' after a nice comment or a
service is performed for them. 'No problem' has a personal
root. It really means 'No problem for me!' It means 'I did it
because it did not cause me a problem.' That is much dif-
ferent from 'You're welcome.' You're welcome' is directed
away from the personal. It means you are welcome to my
service (or kind words) to you. 'No problem' means 'I served
you because it did not interfere with me."'
Parker also mentioned the breakdown in respect for the
customer. Once upon a time, businesses prided themselves
on respecting the customer and ensuring they left satisfied.
Now, employees want to eliminate the problem rather than
solve it, even if that means getting rid of the customer.
In addition to insulting the customer, businesses are
hurting themselves by neglecting customers, especially
here in the South where pride is brewed in our sweet tea.
You can believe that if a Southerner says, "I'll never grace
this doorway again" or "You can bet I'won't buy another
thing from them," they mean it.
It seems that customer service took a flying leap to its
death as we, the customers, took on several new jobs. Self-
service now parades around under the guise of customer
service. We pump our own gas, scan and bag our own gro-
ceries, check ourselves in at the airport, become our own
online banker, and diagnose our own technical difficulties
over the phone by punching in numbers to an automated
operator. And we wonder why our social graces are failing?


When businesses eliminate customer service, they elimi-
nate genuine human-to-human contact. They eliminate the
opportunity to learn and practice the skills of conversation,
conflict resolution, compromise, and compassion.
An entire generation is growing up through text messag-
ing, automated tellers, and self-serve kiosks-never learn-
ing to communicate and interact with others. How well will
this "self-serve" method really serve them later in ilrl- when
they must collaborate with co-workers, teams, competi-
tors?
We're not just witnessing the death of customer service,
we're witnessing the end of an entire way of life-man-
ners, congeniality, and customer satisfaction will soon be
stomped out by businesses and corporations acting in the
interest of time and money only. Pretty soon, the notion of
customer service resulting in an actual service performed
for you will be as foreign as the gas you now have to pump.

Editor,

It's been four years since my "lemming letter" appeal. I
asked Republican moderates and independent voters not to
join the party base of theocratic and plutocratic lemmings
who were blindly following Bush over the cliff to the disas-
ter that would follow if he were reelected.
Well, you didn't listen, and now you see what has hap-
pened to our once great country. Are you still planning on
following the lemmings in their obedience to a Presidential
ticket that is truly frightening? One headed by a self-pro-
claimed maverick whose lust for the office has him chang-
ing positions almost hourly in an effort to pander to the far
right? One that because of this pandering includes a pre-
varicator who doesn't even know what the Bush Doctrine
is? One that will appoint Supreme Court justices who will
overturn Roe v. Wade, eliminate the separation of church
and state and complete the destruction of our First Amend-
ment rights?
Any reasonable person who compares the qualifications
and platform of the Obama-Biden team to McCain-Palin
(or Palin-McCain as she would have it) has to conclude that
by electing the latter we are extending for another four
years the failed policies of the worst administration in our
nation's history.
The train has wrecked, folks. I'm not sure that it can be
salvaged. But one thing I do know: it won't run on the track
that it has been on for the past eight years. It's time to get
on a new one with Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Editor:
I have resisted until now responding to the false accu-
sations that were made against me in the Gillman case. I
have perhaps naively assumed that one who knows me and
who knows my character and conduct would believe the lies
about me that came out of this courtroom. However, the ac-
cusations have continued and I realize that many people
who do no know me have no basis on which to understand
that the accusations made against me in court were utterly
,and completely false.
The Gillman case was a lawsuit that was filed against
the school board. I do not make school board policy. I mere-
ly follow it. I was only a witness in this case, not a defen-
dant or a party. Therefore I had absolutely no way to de-
fend myself against the false accusations that were made
against me in the courtroom and by the judge. The attor-
neys for the school board were not defending me and so the
horrible accusations made against me were never refuted
in he trial. I am particularly upset that I would be falsely
accused of lifting children's shirts, of making school board
policy to hurt children in my school, or of treating children
in my school with anything but the greatest respect and
care that I feel for every one of them.
Since I was merely a witness in this lawsuit, it is very
difficult for me to find a way to redeem my reputation. I
can't appeal the case. I can't sue the attorneys who handled
the case for malpractice. I certainly can't sue the judge for
slander.
Justice was not served that day and I emphatically deny
all the false charges made against me. I am still reviewing
my legal options for redeeming my reputation, but they are
frustratingly limited since I was never a party to the Gill-
man lawsuit, but was merely a witness at the trial. I am
very disappointed that the school board capitulated to the
ACLU in the manner they did and that they did not stand
behind me in this matter when they clearly know what the
truth is:.

Editor,


The Congress should have the love of America, the
honor, the integrity, and justice to leave party outside the
door when they go into session. Party be damned, America
first!
I believe the Congressional Record bears testimony to
the fact that this has not happened.
Shame, shame on the members of Congress!
I would like to ask you a question: why do you think that
approximately 90 percent of the members of Congress are
lawyers who would have no trouble earning multiple times
the stipend paid by the government to said members? Tax-
payer money!
It would be wonderful to be naive enough to believe it
was for the love of this wonderful country, wouldn't it? I re-
member reading about a report made to the King of France
in the 1700s in response to the king's request that he
find out what made this bustling young nation such a big
fact in a growing world economy. The ambassador, in re-
porting to the King, said that he investigated every walk of
life in America. He found that established churches were,
in fact, responsible for the establishment of most of the in-
stitutions of higher learning at that time and the energy
and industry of the nation stemmed from its goodness.
Those who know the history of America know that ito
founders were composed of those who came from Europe
and other countries to escape slavery and persecution. I
am. also speaking of Africans who were victimized, niot by
America, but their own people who were slave traders in
their own countries who found lucrative labor markets -
not only in the new world but in Europe as well.
The Ambassador concluded his report with- this com-
ment: "America will be great as long as America is good.
When she is no longer good she will no longer be great."
Fellow citizens, I will leave it to your judgment as to this
truth when you are confronted with a
Congress as corrupt and politicized as our current Con-
gress. I am not speaking of Democrats or Republicans,
but both. When will you wake up to the fact'that people
are people, endowed with all of the weaknesses of the hu-
man race-the love of power, money, and greed!? This has
been mankind's nemesis since the beginning of creation!
The far-left liberals, represented by Harry Reid and Nancy
Pelosi, who have taken over the Congress are intent upon
a socialistic government,'not a democracy, but they had to
have a lot of help on both sides- of the aisle. Therefore, we,
the people, need to clean house! Both Teddy and Franklin
Roosevelt would turn over.in their graves if they
could see the present Democratically-controlled Congress!
Wake up, folks, before it's too late.

Editor,
I would like to add my comments to the letter from the
lady at Santa Rosa Beach, "Country vs. Family."
With all my heart I thank the men and women who, dur-
ing WWII, put their families second and their country first.
Without their love for their country which, of course, is
made up of families, we would all be speaking German
now. How lucky was Mrs. Obama that when she applied for
a job she could express her demands before she accepted
the position. Most women do their best to get a job, and
then have the ability to work it into a schedule. I do not
know the exact spot in the sand that this lady has been
burying her head in, but women working longer hours and
harder is nothing new. You know the trouble is that we
allowed women to be educated and, gosh darn, that meant
they had to leave the house!
I find no problem with Governor Palin's husband staying
home and giving the children a secure, stable life (who all
look as though they are almost old enough to practically
look after themselves). Men can do the job just as well as
women.
When I see Mrs. Obama during the day at one of her
husband's rallies with her children, I wonder why they are
not in school? And if it should be at night, why are they not
tucked up in bed? I know she is old enough to remember
the Kennedys. I don't remember people raising objections
to the wives accompanying those candidates all over the
country.
When does any woman worry today about what she's go-
ing to cook for dinner, in the middle of a National Security
meeting or not? Maybe we shouldn't drive cars, in case we
are worrying about what we are going to cook for dinner
and have an accident. Suppose a doctor is performing a
serious operation and suddenly worries about supper that
night.
Really, how moronic can one get! With regular cooking,
microwaves, freezers, refrigerators and many stores open
24-7, plus good old take-out, where's the problem? I was
a working wife/mother all my adult years. My final word,
dear lady, is this women do not choose to have children.
They may go through the mixing of the ingredients, but it
is the dear Lord who decides who shall have children and
who shall not. Just my comments.

BUDGET

CONTINUED
FROM PAGE 1-A


looking at is to bring back
any unspent health insur-
ance funds and any unspent
worker comp funds will come
to around $625,000." Imfeld
added that with other trim-
ming, reviewing health care
contracts and two more po-
sitions being cut from the
county, his office believed
they would be able to make
up for the short fall and keep
the budget as presented.
Overall the county has
cut 18 positions, by combin-
ing positions or not refill-
ing them as they have come
open. All county constitu-
tional officers received a re-
quest from the BCC to come
back with a zero increase in
their budgets for the coming
2008-2009 year.
Johnson brought CPA
Robert Patrick and attor-
ney Matt Burns to plead
his case for more funding to
keep from cutting positions.
Burns told the BCC that due
to Florida Statue 129.06,
beginning October first,
Johnson, due to losing the
primary and no longer being
the incumbent, would lose
the ability to move funds
within his budget to cover
payroll. During a calendar
month, only one-twelfth of
the budget set for personnel
can be used to cover payroll
per month, per the statute.
A confusing discussion
ensued over what had actu-
ally been paid and what con-
stituted remaining funds in
the WCSO budget. Johnson


^e-T ..A,
^*
I;Zt


and his representatives re-
quested either giving him
the ability to move funds be-
tween accounts to cover pay-
roll or give his budget addi-
tional funds to cover the 10
employees.
Imfeld told the the BCC
that they had funded the
number of employees re-
quested for the WCSO since
2004. "Last September,
when we were showing that
he should have had 199 em-
ployees, he said he had 202
on board and said he would
not hire any' more or give
any additional raises, I hear
now there is 207 onboard,
maybe more. Overstaffing
has been an issue. There is
also an additional issue of
$72,000 added for profes-
sional staffing, which I will
assume is for Mr. Patrick's
services."
Commissioner Sara Co-
mander noted that all other
constitutional officers had
been able to heed their re-
quest and trim spending
and the WCSO had not.


Meadows responded that
the WCSO was different
because they work around
the clock and have endured
increases in gas cost and re-
pairs and maintenance.
Comander pointed out
that in January, if the BCC
went along with Johnson's
request to have the ability
tomove funds, the incoming
sheriff would have a defi-
cit of $60,000 in personnel
funds. ,
County Attorney W.C.
Henry expressed his concern
over providing Johnson with
the ability to move more
than the allowed amount al-
lowed by the statute. He said
the way the statue was writ-
ten, it could possibly leave
the commissioners open for
legal difficulties since it is
their duty to protect these
funds. Henry said in clos-
ing, "I'm not'sure if that is
an unlawful delegation of
your authority."
After another discussion
about the budget, Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon moved

motion. The budget was ap-

Johnson said after the
meeting he was still mulling
his options about any type

to follow through with the
layoffs effective Sept. 30.
"It doesn't matter who the

ary, they are going to need

static. This isn't about me,
this is about the service we

son.
BCC Chairman, Larry
Jones said after the meet-
ing, that "almost $11 mil-
lion has been trimmed from

tional officers had been able

ways to meet our goals. As
Sara said, it's not fair that
one office is not required to
do the same."
Clerk of Court Martha
Ingle concurred the follow-
ing day, We have merged
positions, and not filled oth-
er vacant ones to meet our
goals. We actually came in
$22,000 under budget for
2008-2009."

on senior needs through October


The Walton County
Board of County Commis-

tion with the cities of De-


Funiak Springs, Paxton and
Freeport, is seeking public

With two months left in.
this year's hurricane season
and the usually active house

local American Red Cross
needs community support.
The Northwest Florida
chapter is asking for sup-
port from individuals and
businesses to participate in
the "Big Swing" golf tourna-
ment. Funds raised from
this event will enable the
local Red Cross to help resi-
dents in Escambia, Santa

nature preserves and wild-
life sanctuaries.
Players will start at noon
with a shotgun start for this
handicapped scramble. A
live -auction will feature a
stay at the El Conquista-
dor Resort in Puerto Rico,
artwork, entertainment,
vacation and holiday pack-
ages. Prizes will be awarded
to top teams and the hole-
in-one prize is a custom-
ized golf cart. Golfers can
unwind after play with a
complimentary chair mas-
sage from Bella Donna Spa
and enjoy a gourmet pasta
dinner during the awards
ceremony.
The individual entry fee
is $79 and includes cart
and greens fees, box lunch,
awards dinner and course
contests. Corporate sponsor-


ships are available starting
at $500. Players can regis-
ter by phone and pay at the

populations using existing
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
is the first step towards
making needed changes for
seniors in Walton Coun-
ty," says J.B. Hillard of
DeFuniak Springs, who is
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 to 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

Walton County Prevention


Coalition working to


improve community


By ALICIA LEONARD
According to the Walton
County Prevention Coali-
tion (WCPC), the vision of
working together as one to
improve the community for
all is imperative. In the sec-
ond part of this series, the
WCPC continues to focus on
underage drinking and their
mission to improve the com-
munity.
The mission statement of
the WCPC states, "Our mis-
sion is to reduce substance
abuse for youth and families
by developing an anti-drug
coalition, which will be a
cross-section collaboration of
community entities. The co-
alition is tasked to strength-
en efforts among public and
private agencies, so as to ad-
dress environmental factors
by identifying, and maxi-.
mizing resources an public
awareness to reduce sub-
stance abuse among youth.
and families."
Underage drinking is
something most people
think about around the time
of spring break in our coun-
ty, but statistics show it's
something parents and fam-
ilies should be concerned
about year around. In the
latest statistics provided by
the WCPC, 19.4 percent of
middle .school students and
49.1 percent of high-school
students have used .alcohol
in the last 30 days for a total
of 35.5 percent. Cigarettes
come in second at 12 per-
cent for middle school and
24.5 percent for high schools
for a total of 19.3 percent
who have used in the last
thirty days. Smokeless to-
bacco comes in third with
6.8 percent of middle school
students trying it and 10


percent of high school stu-
dents.
It's a trend that concerns
Brian Callahan, WCPC
coordinator. He has been
working on the reduction of
underage drinking and alco-
hol-related crashes. "Right
now we are in the process of
finding different prevention
strategies and working with
local law enforcement to find
those strategies." The idea
of stopping underage drink-
ing is two-fold according to
Callahan, "Number one,
we need adults to stop buy-
ing alcohol for underaged
youths and, number two,
we need to be able to get out
and educate the youth on the
dangers of underage drink-
ing and driving. We need to
understand how the youth
in our community view alco-
hol and why they would con-
sider driving while under
the influence."
Rates of drinking and
driving by those under 21
have varied over the last
10 years in Walton. A total
of 382 cases have been filed
in the county in the last 10
years. The greatest spike
was in 2006, with 56 cases
being reported that year
alone. Among the counties
throughout Florida, Walton
has a high ranking in alco-
hol-related, motor vehicle
crashes. The state of Flor-
ida's average is 136.4 per
100,000 of the population.
Walton comes in at 176.9
per 100,000 people.
Callahan is working with
the Department of Children
and Families and with com-
munity volunteers to get
feedback on the programs
the WCPC is putting to-
gether. Data is being sepa-


rated at the state level to
get more updated data than
is now available. Callahan
had praise for local Alco-
holic Beverage and Tobacco
agents (ABT). "We've been
working with Tony Corn-
man and many of his people
from ABT. They almost al-
ways have someone attend
our meetings and are doing
a very good job of staying
on top of the issue, as far as
selling to minors and such
in our area," he said.
"One of the things about
alcohol and tobacco is they
overlap in many situations,"
said Callahan. Another is-
sue starting to confront
families is the abuse of pre-
scription drugs. "In that cir-
cumstance, kids don't need a
dealer. They can get a lot of
.,stuff from their own house
or grandparents' homes
and taken or sold to their
peers."
How can the public help
the prevention methods be-
ing built and tested in Wal-
ton? Callahan said, "The big-
gest thing is to get involved.
Becoming more aware of
what is going on with drugs
and substance abuse in
your community. As far as
prescription drugs, know
what you have on hand and
discard what you no longer
need, after maybe consult-
ing your local pharmacy on
the safest way to discard
unused medications. With
the underage drinking prob-
lem, know who your kids
are hanging out with, where
they are going and open a
line of communication with
your kid's friend's parents.
Have open lines of commu-
nications with the people in
your kids life."
For more information

kids and the community
substance-free, contact the

tin Petrey was on hand for
Thursday's meeting and as-
sured the Council that the
safety of the citizens was ad-
dressed during the selection
process. He also stressed
the need for the Council to
move on the post office plans
because fiscal year funding
would dry up as of Tuesday
night. On Monday, Free-
port Postmaster John Cu-
gler stressed safety concerns
of his own at the existing fa-
cility. "The current post of-


fice has always had a safety
issue," Cugler said. "During
my three years as postmas-
,ter we have had numerous
accidents in the parking lot
and it is only a matter of
time till someone gets really
hurt." Cugler also pointed
out that the post office has
outgrown the current site.
Monday's meeting had
an overflow, standing-room-
only crowd and both sides
of the issue were discussed.
The majority of the opinions
were for the new.post office,


and several times the audi-
.ence erupted in applause
in support of the new facil-
ity. Ultimately Councilman
Simmons made a motion to
accept the plan and it was
approved by a four-to-one
vote. Councilman Ray Jack-
son cast the opposing vote.
The meeting ended with
Marse thanking the citi-

The mystery of Virginia's


Fairy Stone State Park


By JEFFREY POWELL
Early Scotch-Irish im-
migrants to the New World
brought with them many
beliefs and legends. Among
them was the concept of
trolls, spirits and fairies.
So naturally, when small
stones shaped like cross-
es were found in the Blue
Ridge area of Virginia (their
new home) stories were cre-
ated to help explain what
was then unexplainable.
Legend has it that fair-
ies inhabited the quiet and
remote region of the Blue
Ridge Mountains. One
day they were playing in a
sunny glade when an elfin
messenger arrived from a
far away city bearing the
sad news of Christ's death.
When the fairies heard the
terrible story of Jesus' cru-
cifixion they cried. As their
tears fell to the ground,
they crystallized into small
stone crosses. These stones,
it is said, remain in that en-
chanted area as mementos


of that sad news.
Today, this enchanted
area is the Fairy Stone
State Park in southwestern
Virgihia. This park is one
of only three places in the
world were the naturally oc-
curring iron aluminum sili-
cate crosses can be found.
The other two are Switzer-
land and a small area in
North Carolina. The stones
are composed of a mineral
compound called staurolite.
Like other minerals, such as
quartz and diamond, stau-
rolite occurs in the form of
regular crystals. Single crys-
tals are hexagonal and often
intersect at right angles to
form a Roman or Maltese
cross or at other angles to
form Saint Andrew's cross-
es. The formation of crystals
involves an exact combina-.
tion of heat and pressure
such as that provided by the
folding or crumpling of the
earth's crust during the for-
mation of the Appalachian
Mountains. Certain types of


rock which have been folded
in this manner are known
as schists. The staurolite
crystals are usually harder
than the surrounding schist
and less easily weathered.
As the staurolite-bearing
schist is weathered away,
the more resistant crystals
are uncovered and come to
lie on the surface.
Although the stone cross-
es have been explained by
modern science the Fairy
Stone State Park is, still an
enchanting place to visit.
The 4,537-acre park is the
largest of Virginia's six
original state parks and
provides the visitor with
fishing, swimming, boating,
camping and hiking oppor-
tunities. In designated areas
the crosses can be hunted
and many times visitors can
take home a memento from
their visit.

cerning Virginia state parks

An industrial gem hidden in Walton


By ALICIA LEONARD


What started out as an
article on the recycling of
political signs turned out
to be much more of an eye-
opening adventure.
Hi-Tec Laboratories and
Gulf Stream Plastics, Inc.,
a self-contained industry,
is working toward keeping
wages in the local economy.
and residents working close
to home, according to found-
er John Magee, as well as
being environmentally-
friendly.
Magee credits local can-
didate Robert Nelson with
planting the seed to recycle
the signs. "Robert asked me
one day, what could he do
with his signs after the cam-
paign?" he said. "I remem-
bered my wife and I walking
this property when we were
thinking about purchas-
ing it and finding old cam-
paign signs that had been
dumped on the property, so
I thought, why not? We can
regrind them." Magee put
the word out and soon the
signs started flowing in to
the company.
Magee's parent company,
Hi-Tec Labs, produces a
drain cleaner that is sold in
six different countries and,
according to Magee, "We will
probably pick up two more
this week." Liquid Lightning
and its sister cleaner, Flow-
ez, and are sold around the
country in stores such as
Lowe's and Publix. Accbrd:
ing to Magee, the chemicals
are blended and put into
their shipping containers at
the plant located on SR-20,
west of Freeport, and then
shipped to the distribution
plant in Birmingham, AL.,
Toronto, Canada, and a new
distribution center opening
in Panama. The cleaners are
the top-selling drain clean-
ers that are in the non-de-
greaser (Draino) category.
After realizing that com-
panies could not keep up
with the demand for plas-
tic bottles for their prod-
ucts, Magee bought out a
company named Alabama
Plastics and moved them to
Freeport. He then started to
produce the bottles his prod-
ucts are sold in, as well as
pharmaceutical bottles for
other companies, including
Wal-Mart toys comprising
mainly plastics, such as the
handle portion of summer-
time butterfly nets for kids.
Learning to, run the
equipment to make the bot-
tles was a learning experi-
ence and led to even more
innovation and sharing
across business lines. "We
wasted a lot of plastic at
first," laughed Magee, "but
we found another company
that pays for the shipping
of these materials. After we
grind them down, they are
sanitized and re-ground and
then re-sold to mold injec-
tor companies, in some in-
stances, to make into play-
ground equipment and car
parts." The company is also

FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT of Hi-Tec Laboratories and Gulf Stream Plastics, Inc.,
John Magee, displays many of the inventions of this little known gem in industry in Walton
County.


involved in the logistics of
producing and selling a new
type of garbage bag that in
production. The plastic is
mixed with a chemical that
will allow the bags to break'
down and decompose, much
quicker than standard gar-
bage bags.
Magee also shared a new
type of mosquito trap. "These
are 100-percent 'green' and
use no chemicals. The plas-
tic trap uses only water is
an incubator system for the
bloodsucking pest. The mos-
quito lays its eggs in the
water inside the trap, which
forces the eggs to hatch and
live out their life cycle inside
the trap. Four of the traps
will cover an acre of land,
according to Magee. "With a
life cycle of fifteen days and
a. usual coverage area of not
over 50 feet, if you get bitten
by a mosquito, you or your
neighbor probably grew that
mosquito. These interrupt
the life cycle of the mosquito
and we have even seen a de-
crease of yellow flies in our
yard". These traps will be
sold worldwide. Stores in
three Latin American coun-
tries have signed on to carry
the traps, which will come
four to a box. This is due to
those countries being more
likely to have mosquito-
borne illnesses than in the
States and the affordabil-
ity of the traps. Magee said
he has also had inquires
from Latin American gov-
ernments about the traps


and their ability to stop the
life-cycle without the use of
chemicals.
Magee's company takes
the adage of not letting any-
thing go to waste seriously
as evidenced by their turn-
key operation, now in place.
The company has drawn the
attention of business lead-
ers in other states. Magee


has been approached by the
mayor of an Alabama city to
relocate the business there
to help their local economy.
Employing around 50 people
locally and more in their dis-
tribution plants worldwide,
Magee says he is partial to
the Walton area, but said
sometimes getting things
moving to help his opera-


tions center locally has been
a task.
"Walton County has all
kinds of red tape that de-
ters business expansion.
They want $10,000 here
and $20,000 there for every-
thing. We need a fast track to
development for business in
this county. I have land here
I am trying to develop and
every time I turn around,
the county needs.more mon-
ey from the business to take
another baby step towards
expansion of the business
that will help employ more
citizens from Walton Coun-
ty and put money back into
our local economy."
Magee says if the busi-
ness portion of development
were streamlined, there
would already be a 50 thou-
sand square foot building on
the premises to make boxes
for his company, that would
employee more people from
Walton County. "I'm proud-
to say that we only have
two employees that are not
from Walton County. We
purchase everything we can
locally and from local owned
businesses. Yesterday, we
had 20 people apply for a job
here. If we could get through
the county's red tape faster,
we could have given some of
those people jobs."- Employ-
ees are important to him,
said Magee. "We were giv-
ing our employees gas al-
lowances before gas prices
increased. We are proud of
our people. My goal, when I
purchased this property was
to become one of the larg-
est employers in the county
that is not involved with the
military or tourism indus-
try. Year around jobs that
benefit Walton County citi-
zens. It's very discouraging,
the problems I have ran into
trying to expand my busi-
ness here. If my business
was inside the Freeport city
limits, everything would al-


ready be built by now."
Magee did have positive
words- for Walton County
Commission Vice-Chair
Sara Comander. "The new
economic development co-
alition bringing the differ-
ent cities and communities
in Walton together is mov-
ing in the right direction
and Sara seems to be one
of the few that understands
what we need here and I
understand she is a part of
that group. She is taking
the strongest lead. Every-
one else seems to be preoc-
cupied and we need'them all
to be on the same page. Next
is getting the manufactur-
ers in Walton together and
brainstorming and discuss-
ing what we can do to grow.
We need.visionary people in
charge and those that un-
derstand growing Walton
towards the future. We need
infrastructure in place so we
can expand and government
leaders willing to grow year
around employment."
Magee said, his love for
Walton County is, what
keeps him here. "I started
this .company and everyone
told me I was crazy to risk
my own money on starting
this company with my wife,"
he said. "I sold my products
out of my car, while cross-
ing the country. Whatever it
took. I sold over 1,80.0 hard-
ware stores my product,
one at a time. I love Walton
County. I've lived here for
26 years. This is home. My
joy in life is to see my em-
ployees have a better life.
We are very much a family
here. That's the niceness of
Walton County. I just hope
that we can get our build-
ing process streamlined and..
continue to grow and em-
ployee people from Walton
County as our business con-
tinues to expand."

ers, the bottles they come in, and even their own replacement
parts for machinery, all in-house.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2008

Ask

Auntie Em
Dear Auntie Em,
I am having a problem and don't know quite where to turn. I am hoping you can help
me. I was widowed two years ago. My husband's death was sudden and left me and our
two'collage-aged children in shock. It has been a long haul back to the light, but.I feel
we weathered it well as a family. They both are busy with school and their lives and,
here I am, alone.
I have met a very nice man at my church. His background is very similar to mine,
but he is childless. He has a good job and a wonderful reputation in our community. We
started out as friends and have now developed feelings for each other and have decided
to commit to a relationship together. I know inside I am ready. My kids are another
item altogether, though.
They refuse to meet this man or attend any family function with him present. They
say they cannot believe I am trying to replace their father and will never accept him
into our family. I am torn and sad. I am a good mother, but the thought of spending the
next 30-40 years alone scares and angers me after what my kids have said to me.
What's your advice?
Despondent in Dothan
(Name and address withheld on request)
Dear Despondent,
My heart goes out to you, honey. I don't quite know where to start with this one, so
I am just gonna jump in. As long as your kids are not trying to protect you from a con-
artist, I believe the advice below is the best I can give.
You took two years after your husband died to put your life back together and re-
sume some stability for your family and now your children are telling you that you don't
deserve a second chance at having a partner or an adult relationship.
Well, boohoo for them. News flash it's not their decision. I'm sure as a mom, you've
heard the "It's my life, I'll do what and see who I want" speech. Every parent has at
sometime or another. So now it's your turn, but as the parent, I ask that you deliver it
in a softer and more adult way, than you may have received it.
Try writing them a letter, if they won't listen in person, and explain that you love
them and no one will ever be able to replace their dad, but you deserve the same chance
at happiness that they and others do. You were very respectful to you husband's mem-
ory and waited two years to even entertain the thought of dating and, with or without
their approval, you will have a personal life of your own. If they do. not want to accept
him, then you will not go out of your way to include them in your celebrations. Holidays
will be split, some with the kids and some with him. But above all, tell them you love
them,no matter what they decide about your personal life. That is most important.
They may be worried about losing you, as well.
I believe the more independence you exert and the less you look for their approval,
the more likely they will be to come around. If they don't, enjoy your new partner and
enjoy your kids, but most of all, enjoy yourself. You only have one life and it should be
full of love from family, partners and friends. You deserve them all and you can have
them. You just have to stand your ground.
God bless and good luck.
Auntie Em

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2008

Movie review


"Fireproof": Where God is not a special effect


By BRUCE COLLIER
If your image of God
comes from the movies,
then he looks like Morgan
Freeman, talks like James
Earl Jones, and prefers to
express Himself via serial
plagues ("The Ten
Commandments") or
exploding Nazi heads
("Raiders of the Lost Ark").
In other words, the
Almighty is just another
special effect. In its zeal not
to offend at least not to
offend people that buy
tickets Hollywood has
come up with a sort of
processed Christianity, air-
puffed and artificially
flavored, like cheap
breakfast cereal.
By contrast, Alex
Kendrick's "Fireproof,"
starring Kirk Cameron and
pretty much nobody else
you'll have heard of, doesn't
even employ a James Earl
Jones impersonator. Yet
God is everywhere evident,
to paraphrase Erasmus,
bidden or unbidden.
Make no mistake, if
Christianity offends you, or
movies with an upfront


Christian appeal turn you
off, you're in for two hours-
and-change of discomfort.
"Fireproof' centers around
the struggle of Caleb Holt
(Cameron) a Georgia fire
chief, to retrieve his
marriage from impending
divorce. His wife Catherine
(Erin Bethea), fed up with
Caleb's insensitivity and
cooling affections, has filed
the papers and Caleb is
about to go along with it. A
talk with his father ends in
Caleb agreeing to
undertake a 40-day
program called "The Love
Dare," a real-life book that
purports to help couples
"fireproof' their marriage.
The film recounts Caleb's
efforts, and, along the way,
his, commitment to
Christianity.
You are probably
familiar with the sub-genre
of theatre called.,"church
drama," more-or-less
inspirational plays that run
the gamut from
dramatizations of Bible
stories (think Christmas
pageant) to "problem"
dramas (think after-school


special). "Fireproof' falls
into the latter category, and
many of the film's cast
members look like amateur
drama-ministry actors.
Shot in Albany, GA., the
credits include a rolling list
of churches and
congregations, thanking
them for their help,
including catering. I
imagine Cameron ate
enough banana pudding
and three-bean salad to last
him the rest of his life by
the time the project
wrapped.

I saw "Fireproof' at a
multiplex theatre in Destin
on the day it opened, and
the house was packed. The
audience trooped in en
masse, and if there wasn't a
fleet of church buses parked
outside I am greatly
mistaken. I doubt, anyone
there just walked in on a
whim. This movie has had
an impressive grass-roots
advance campaign. It is the
latest in a long line of
applied-Christianity films,
one for which there is
obviously a substantial


,audience. These are the
folks that aren't saving up
for, "Saw V."
Is "Fireproof' a
good film, its message
aside? That's just it, you
cannot judge the film aside
from its message, which is
its sole reason for being. It
is not meant to entertain,
titillate, scandalize, or kill
time while your spouse
finishes shopping.' The
message of the film is -that
you can make your
marriage indestructible,
but .not without God's help.
Not "the universe," "the life
force," or "your higher
power." God, Jesus, the
Holy Spirit, all three of
them. If you aren't at least
open to that, forget about
this one. If you are one of
the faithful, or want to
hang out with the faithful,
you'll need to meet the
movie half-way.
Cameron is by far the
best actor in the film -
though several of his
colleagues, notably Bethea
and Ken Bevel, hand in
good, professional
. performances. The


production quality is clean
and workmanlike, but lean-
budgeted. The attempts to
lighten the mood with
humor are generally corny,
and about the only thing
holding it all together is
that everyone takes what
they're doing completely
seriously. Which is exactly
what is intended.
"Fireproof' is certified


Irony-Free, and lacks only
an altar-call at the end.
If there is a place for
films that mock Christianity
- and there are plenty of
films that do, whether
there's a place for them or
not there's a place for
films like "Fireproof." As
Oscar Wilde once observed,
there is a vital importance
in being earnest.

By SHEILA LETO SCOTT
"Carry each other's bur-
dens, and in this way you
will fulfill the law of Christ."
Galatians 6:2 NIV"
On Aug. 30, I boarded
a greyhound bus in Fort
Walton Beach, FL. for Al-
exandria, LA. where I was
scheduled by the Church of
the Brethren's Children's
Disaster Services to be in
a staff shelter at LSU-AG
Where I would be carrying
out child care in the area,
I wasn't sure. I had a Red
Cross phone number and
would receive periodic cell
phone calls from my hus-
band, who was monitoring
my email from Judy Bezon
at CDS. I arrived in Alexan-
dria at 10:10 p.m. and the
bus station, which was sup-
posed to be open until 11
p.m., was closed. It had a
sign reading, "Closed Until
Further Notice."
Before the last two per-
sons left the outside of the
station, using my cell phone,
I managed to find a taxi
that would take me to the
address I had for the shel-
ter. I reached an automated
response on the Red Cross
phone number which had
no information about my lo-
cation. The taxi driver and I
spent a harried time trying
to find the staff shelter. Our
first find was the Special
Needs Shelter on the LSU-
AG campus (Louisiana had
learned from Katrina not to
leave ill and nursing home
persons when evacuating),
next was a building full of
FEMA personnel with hun-
dreds of ambulances, and
finally at the far southern
end of the campus was a
huge building with the ad-
dress I was seeking on its
wall.
When I entered, few
people were about as it was
after midnight. Sue, the
Red Cross women who was
taking me to the dorm for
staff, walked me over to the
balcony when we reached
the upstairs and I viewed
an amazing sight. A room
almost as large as a foot-
ball field was completely
filled with army brown cots,
each with a white blanket
folded on the end. I could
see a second room almost as
large also filled with cots.
One man was asleep in the
middle of the room, on his
stomach, covered in a blan-
ket, the picture of exhaus-
tion.
Before we entered the
staff room, someone yelled
up to Ste to wake up Sha-
ron and the staff (who had
just gone to bed). Ten buses
had arrived out front. I put
my belongings on an empty
cot as everyone was getting
up, and then I asked the
Red Cross leader, "What
should I do?" Her response
was, "You can help." I found
ways to help over the next
three hours and all day Sat-
urday and Sunday morning
until my CDS leader and the
rest of the team arrived.
My tasks included car-
rying a one-month old baby
across the vast room so that
family members could carry
their belongings. There were
many more babies, some less
than a week old. The other
CDS volunteer already on


site opened diaper and baby
wipe boxes and set up a dis-
tribution center for the Red
Cross. I walked back and
forth across the huge' room,
where cots were rearranged
and families were placed
in groups with some space
around them. I handed out
diapers, wipes, ice water, or
whatever I could find that
was requested. Sometimes
I carried messages. Two el-
derly gentlemen had been
left at the wrong shelter.
They were supposed to be
in the Special Needs Shel-
ter and had paperwork to
prove it. Did the right peo-
ple know, they asked? Was
anyone coming for them?
I brought them cups of ice
water. I knew the staff was
taking care other problem,
but I went to the Red Cross
CEO and re-reported it so
they would be reassured.
I held a one-year-old child
who had wandered about
lost and crying for awhile.
Security personnel and oth-
ers were attempting to- find
his parents, so I sat in a very
visible area holding him
hoping the parent would see
him. He fell asleep against
my shoulder and was even-
tually reunited with his
mother. She had turned his
care over to two young rela-
tives while she took a show-
er and they took it lightly
that he was lost. His mother
and the other mothers and
grandmothers in the area
did not take it lightly.
The building in which
were located was built spe-
cifically to be an evacuation
shelter after Katrina. It is
on the Louisiana State Uni-
versity Agricultural Campus
at Alexandria and will be
theirs to use when it is not
needed for a shelter. To the
best of my knowledge, the
building contains 230,000
'square feet and can hold
3,500 evacuees plus staff.
It had only been finished a
week and a half before we
arrived and we became the
test of what was good and
what needed changes. It
was built to withstand 160-
70 mph winds and that is
good. Hurricane Gustav was
packing only 70 mph winds
as it went over us on Mon-
day.
About 40-50 people slept
side by side on cots, with
some sleeping during days
and some at night, accord-
ing to shifts. We also did
without showers for. days,
as our two shower stalls had
problems.
Children's Disaster Ser-
vices has been -a ministry
of the Church of the Breth-
ren for over 25 years. They
train and certify child care
workers from all denomi-
nations- all across the U.S.
After a three-day training,
when one is approved, back-
ground checks are made and
the person is declared a CDS
child care worker. When
there is a disaster, CDS is
called by FEMA, the Red
Cross, or other agencies and
.asked to be a partner and to
set up child care centers. The
goal is to "create a safe -and
friendly environment to give
children the ability to act
like children." CDS goes into
action and contacts certi-
fied volunteers to determine


their readiness to respond
for two weeks service. Every
child care worker has neces-
sary belongings, their CDS
badge, and blue and white
identifying vests, aprons or
shirts ready. Travel plans
are coordinated by CDS and
one is on the way.
It turned out our team
was to, help in the mega
shelter where we were stay-
ing. At each situation needs
are different. At LSU-AG
we had over 3,000 persons
at peak capacity, many of
them children. We were a
team of eight, five women
and three men, representing
five Christian' denomina-
tions. We set up a spacious
child care center in a corner
of a room, using cardboard
cot boxes as walls and using
bins of toys, provided for us
by Save the Children. We
also had several CDS Kits of
Comfort. These
are large suitcases already
packed with everything that
might be needed for a child
care area. Volunteers keep
them at their homes and
take them when they are
called to serve. We are even
trained how to set up a cen-
ter when no toys or equip-
ment arrive. As we opened
our center on Monday, the
day Gustav passed over,
we also had set up a spe-
cial area and had a plan to
take children during a tor-
nado. Fortunately, though a
tornado later hit two miles
from us, we did not have to
take frightened children.to
safety.
The room we were in was
almost as large as another
football field and it filled
with hundreds of EMS and
other rescue people the day
of the storm. They were at
.a loss with nothing to do,
so they would wander by
and chat over the boxes
with us. They were on cots
and asleep as we left Mon-
day night and had vanished
Tuesday morning as they all
had posts elsewhere. Later
the room became the sleep-
ing quarters of members of
the Department of Public
health. These were doc-
tors and other health care
personnel whom I assume
are a part of the National
Guard (They were dressed
in camouflage pants, boots,
and black tee-shirts). Some
of them had to sleep during
the' daytime, so we did not
jump rope or play ball, as
a courtesy to them. We also
vigorously cleansed the chil-
dren's and our hands with
antibiotic solution as they
instructed with our addition
of "Happy Birthday" or the
"ABC" song.
Our job was to play with
the children, listen to them
talk if they so chose, and
provide a safe and secure
caring environment that
included laughter and fun.
When they returned to their
harried parents, who appre-
ciated respite from children
with nothing to do and no-
where to go but sit on their
cots, it was all worthwhile
because they returned with
smiles on their faces. We
were told by the Red Cross
leader that we made the
difference between survival
and success.
Specifically, I played

MINI DENTAL IMPLANT

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.

many games of Candy-
land, Uno, and Go Fish-
ing. I helped older children
make beautiful bead neck-
laces and bracelets, I did my
share at the Play Doh table,
on another rug with small
cars, with puppets, super-
vising foam sticker art, and
putting together puzzles.
We also had painting, fin-
ger painting with colored
shaving cream, all kinds of
drawing with markers, and
small animals and dolls.
Other child care workers
came to assist us later in the
week and brought new Kits
of Comfort, which included
material to make sock pup-
pets.
The people in the LSU-
AG mega shelter were from
New Orleans and southern
Louisiana. Some of them
were with us for seven or
eight days and were trying
to find out where to go since
their homes on the coast
were gone. Many had pets in
the shelter which was set up
in the building adjacent to
our building and they had to
leave periodically to go and
visit their pets. Obviously
many lessons have been
learned in Louisiana about
leaving helpless people and
leaving pets behind.
.Some of our residents lost
everything during Katrina
and were trying to rebuild
their lives when Gustav
hit. I met many such people
during the summer of 2007
when I went to New Orleans
twice to do CDS work at
the FEMA "Welcome Home
Center." Most fared better
this go round.
We had large numbers
of security personnel, so at
all times we felt safe. We
did without many things
at various times, but the
powers that be also learned
from our experience. We
spent several days organiz-
ing and repacking materials
and preparing for Hurricane
Ike. It was finally decided
that the shelter would not
be reopened for Ike because
the path of the storm had
moved to Texas and there
were still things that need-
ed tobe'fixed.
At the, end of my two
week service,. I made the
decision to rent a car and
drive home. I was unsure of
the bus because bus stations
on my route were closed for
lack of power and people
from the area I would go
through were evacuating. I
drove north to Monroe, LA.
and took 1-20 across Loui-
siana and Mississippi and
finally drove south to the
coast and Mobile, AL. My
husband met me at the air-
port in Fort Walton Beach,
FL. (which was closed when
I arrived after midnight).
We managed to find a se-
curity guard who agreed to
return my Hertz rental in-
formation and keys and my
husband drove me the one
hour home.

"Angels Among Us...Even in Iraq"


Author Dr. Diane Hassan


visits DeFuniak Springs


Everyone is invited to
come out to Southwide Bap-
tist Church on Thursday,
Oct. 9 at 6:30 p.m. to hear,
Dr. Diane Hassan, author
of the book "Angels Among
Us... Even In Iraq."
Living in Iraq under the
dictatorship of former lead-
er Saddam Hussein helped
Hassan realize how impor-
tant the fight for freedom
was, not only in her own
life, but also globally. Dur-
ing Saddam's purge after
Desert Storm, she and her
family dramatically escaped
an assassination attempt on
her husband, who was then
a prominent member under
Saddam's political regime.


Says Hassan, a native of
Dothan, AL., "I want people
to realize how lucky they are
to live in freedom. I pray
that as they meet the angels
God sent to help me, they
will become more aware
of the angels God sends to
help them. I want my read-
ers to know the good people
of Iraq and how important
Iraq is for our freedom as
well. They will realize free-
dom is not free. No matter
how dark our days are, God
will send sunshine."
Hassan says her story
shows. how people of differ-
ent cultures and ideologies
can overcome natural bar-
riers and live in peace. For


example, in the midst of Des-
ert Storm, "I was in a small
village about five minutes
from the largest airport in
the Middle East, and all the
military targets surrounded
us," she says. "I lived for
44 days in this village. At
times we did not have food,
but the Sunni farmers kept
us fed --- and my husband's
family is Shiite!" Hassan
believes stories like these
prove there are indeed an-
gels among us --- even in
Iraq.

tacted at 892-9754.


A friend of mine sent me
this:
Jesus did not. seem to be
faring very well. Failing
to cater to the whims and
wishes of the carnal crowd,
his audience had dropped
from several thousand to
a dozen in one day (John
6). Instead of holding a
"seeker-driven" service, He
had been insensitive and
driven the seekers away in
droves. While the people
had expressed "felt'needs,"
for bread and an earthly
king to fight their battles,
Jesus had talked of spiri-
tual bread and a different
kind of kingdom. By the
end of the day, his numbers
and popularity had plum-
meted. Yet He seemed to
be unshaken. He still had
the 12 disciples. They fol-
lowed Him, recognizing He
had the words of eternal
life.

Down the road, Jesus
met a well-dressed man
carrying a briefcase stuffed
with market survey charts.
"I am a Church Growth ex-
pert, and .I can help you,"
he said. "Your approach
is not user-friendly at all.
If you really want to influ-
ence this generation for
God, you have to build up
those numbers, and to do
that you have to cut some
corners. I have some plans
here that your target au-
dience will really like."
He began to list the self-
centered, sin-sparing ap-
proach that embraced any
lifestyle and eliminated all
church discipline. Calmly
Jesus responded, "No man
can come to me, except the
Father which hath sent me
draw him, and I will raise
him up at the last day,"
John 6:44.

As soon as this expert
was gone, Jesus met an-
other one a bearded man
in sunglasses and smoking
a cigar. He called himself
the Promoter. "Lord, these
Psalms you sing they're too
old for our Hebrew boomer
generation. They can't re-
late to that tedious, tradi-
tional stuff. Our surveys
show they really dig Jeru-
salem grunge and Sidonian
rap. I can have some of
these bands do a gig at your
rallies, and you'll have your
crowds back in no time."
Jesus refused his offer.


When Promoter left, a
professor from Bethsaida
Bible Institute- showed up
and immediately admon-
ished Jesus to quit preach-
ing such a harsh, negative
message and to stop bash-
ing the Pharisees.. "The
Pharisees are our natural
allies in the culture war.
We need them in our battle
against abortion, pornogra-
phy and those indecent Ro-
man gladiator shows. We've
got to be more ecumenical.
Besides, the Pharisees are
zealous. They'll encompass
land and sea to make one
convert. You should have
heard Rabbi Hillel preach
on self-esteem at the Hip-
podrome why, 8,000 men


came forward."
To all such short-cuts and
carnal offers, Jesus said,
"Get thee behind me Satan
- Thou art an offense unto
me, for thou savorest not
the things that be of God,
but those that be of men"
(Matthew 16:23). Then He
went to the cross, provided
atonement for sinners, and
laid a foundation with that
handful of spiritual follow-
ers who turned the world
upside down in one gen-
eration, relying only on the
preaching of the Gospel and
power of the Holy Spirit.

Walton rolls past Vernon 49-7


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves got
four touchdowns from Issac
Jackson and the defense al-
lowed no rushing yards to
the Vernon offense as Wal-
ton posted a 49-7 road vic-
tory over the Vernon Yel-
lowjackets.
Walton built a 21-7 lead
late in the second quarter,
but saw Vernon put togeth-
er a drive to the Walton 27-
yard line that threatened
to get the home team back
into the contest. That did
not happen. Deron Hogans
picked off a John Johnson
pass at the 1-yard line and
returned it to midfield with


less than two minutes to
go in the first half. Walton
promptly marched 50 yards
for a score and Issac Jackson
danced in from two yards
out with 21 seconds left to
hoist Walton's lead to 28-7.
Vernon took the second
half kickoff and promptly
threw an interception to Will
Brock on the first play from
scrimmage at the Yellow-
jackets 42-yard line. Walton
senior quarterback Tarrell
Bramlet led the Braves to
paydirt when he hit wideout
Matt Ellenberg from the 10-
yard line for a touchdown
and a 35-7 lead.
For the second consecu-


tive week, Walton's defen-
sive' front harassed an op-
posing quarterback into
mistakes. Johnson heaved
three interceptions while
being sacked twice. His
speed allowed him to escape
Walton a few times, but he
was still limited to 24 rush-
ing yards to lead the team.
Walton's offense had no
trouble moving the football
and the Braves scored on 7
of their 13 possessions with
a pair of Bramlet intercep-
tions and a bad punt snap
the only major problems on
the evening.
Issac Jackson tallied 135
rushing yards on the night


and has put the football
in the endzone 11 times
through the first four games
of the regular season.
Walton's John Querisma
also provided the Braves
with an interception and his
55-yard run late in the game
set up a Justin Dorsey score
from eight yards out for the
final margin of 49-7.
Walton (3-1) stunned the
previously undefeated Ver-
non(2-1) crowd by making
all the big plays when the
squad needed them. Adding
to Vernon's frustration was
the fact Walton stopped the
Yellowjackets on all four of
their fourth down attempts.


Baker edges South Walton 35-33


By PATRICK CASEY
A failed two-point conver-
sion allowed the Baker Ga-
tors to escape with a 35-33
victory over the South Wal-
ton Seahawks in the district
opener for both teams.
In a game that featured
little defense, Baker's Cam-
eron Domangue made the
difference. He ran for 199
yards and two touchdowns
while passing for another.
The Gators improved to 3-1
with the road victory.
South Walton's David Ba-
zylak countered Domangue
as he provided 27 of the.Se-
ahawks 33 points. Bazylak
had a 76-yard kickoff return
to start the second half of
play that allowed the home
team to tie the game at 21-
21.
The tie lasted only 19 sec-
onds as Domangue hit Kel-
lan Meeks -with a- 62-yard
pass for a :touchdown and
the Gators went ahead to
stay at 28-21.
Two Bazylak field goals
in the third quarter brought
the Seahawks within a point
at 28-27.
Baker lengthened the
lead to 35-27 and Domangue
got loose on a 27-yard scor-
ing run with 1:45 left in the


third quarter. The Gators
scored on five of their eight
possessions during the con-
test as Domangue was hit
for a loss only twice amongst
his 26 carries on the night.
South Walton scored
theii final touchdown with
just over 10 minutes to play
in the game. Bazylak got
loose on a 19-yard run to
cut the Baker lead to 35-33.
The Seahawks went for the
two-point conversion after a
penalty on their first try, but
Bazylak was smacked down
inches shy of the goalline to
preserve the'Gator lead.
Baker proceeded to hold
the football for the next
9:58 as the Gators ground
up yardage and the clock
and drove to the Seahawks
15-yard line before being
stopped.
SThe Seahawks got the
-ball-back at their ow-n -23-
yard line, but with time for
only one pass play that was
intercepted as time expired.
South Walton (3-1) will
host Cottondale on Friday
night for Homecoming at 7
p.m. The contest is likely to
be a high scoring affair as
the Hornets have struggled
on defense this season to the
tune of a 1-3 record.

Sports news and notes


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
volleyball team defeated
Baker on the road in five
sets, but lost in straight sets
to Pensacola Catholic on the
road. Walton is 12-4 and a
heavy favorite over South
Walton on Thursday. The
Braves will get a second
chance at Pensacola Catho-
lic on October 16, but the
bad news is that the district
tournament is on Catholic's
home floor.
Freeport's volleyball team
is 9-4 after defeating South
Walton but losing to Crest-
view in straight sets. The
Bulldogs will be a heavy fa-
vorite over Jay at home on
Thursday before facing Wal-
ton on the road on October 6.
It will very likely come down
to a third meeting between
Freeport and Baker in late
October on Jay's home floor
for the district title.
The South Walton vol-
leyball team is 0-11 after
being swept by Freeport
and Northview last- week.
The schedule is not kind to
the Seahawks, and with no
seniors, a win this season
may not be in the cards. The
team is not nearly as bad as
their record, but that may
be little comfort if the Sea-
hawks can't find a way to


post a single win.
Walton Middle School
swept both football games
from Freeport last week win-
nihg 22-16 and 34-6. Walton
hasn't lost a football contest,
but continues to find it dif-
ficult to find teams willing
to play them. Next season
Okaloosa County is consid-
ering allowing some of their


schools to face the Warriors
in football.
The Walton junior varsi-
ty football team won its first
game with a 21-6 home vic-
tory over South Walton. The
Walton JV squad will host
Freeport on Thursday night
at 6 p.m.
The Walton Middle
School girls basketball team


swept both varsity games
from Freeport and Laurel
Hill last week but lost both
junior varsity contests. The
varsity squad is 3-1 and will
host Seaside on Thursday
and Laurel Hill on Monday.
The Walton golf team
stayed busy last week. Wal-
ton finished second to Choc-
taw in a match at Bluewater


Bay with Niceville finishing
third and Crestview fourth.
Paul McClure was the low
medalist as he shot a 38.
He edged teammate Heath
Morgan, who shot a 39. Clay
Cawthon posted a 43 and
Hunter Kirby a 48 to round
out the team. Walton de-
feated Marianna and Chip-
ley at the DeFuniak Springs


Country Club in their second
match of the week as Heath
Morgan took low medalist
honors by shooting a 35 for
the nine-hole match. Devin
Partridge added a 41, Clay
Cawthon a 43 and Curtis
Miller a 47. Contact Pat-
rick Casey with local sports

Walton High School FCA students to host

"Fields of Faith" event October 8


Students from Walton
High School will be join-
ing thousands of other
youths on athletic fields all
across America on Wednes-
day, Oct. 8, to share their
Christian faith with fellow
students during the fifth
annual "Fields of Faith"
'event. This rapidly-grow-
ing, interdenominational
outreach event will be held
at more than 400 locations
throughout the country on
the same day.
t While many Christian
rallies are anchored to an
entertainer or professional
speaker creating a specta-
tor event, "Fields of Faith"
is structured as a student-
to-student ministry. Peers
invite their own classmates
and teammates to meet on
their school's athletic field to
hear fellow students share
their testimonies, challenge


them to read the Bible and
to come to faith in Jesus
Christ.
The growth of "Fields of
Faith" has been remark-
able. It began with 6,000
kids on 23 fields in Okla-
homa, Texas and Kansas in
2004. Three years later, an
estimated 75,000 students
participated on 386 fields
all across the country dur-
ing last year's events.
It's not just those num-
bers that have FCA orga-
nizers excited about "Fields
of Faith." It's.the real-life
impact that these events
are having on young people.
Last year's series of events
saw 1,852 students make
first-time commitments to
Christ, 4,089 recommitted
their life to Christ and 9,149
committed to reading the
Bible daily.
"Athletic fields provide a


neutral and familiar spot for
students to assemble," said
Les Steckel, FCA President
and a former NFL coach.
"Many nights are spent on
those fields cheering on local
teams, but on this particu-
lar night the praise belongs
to God."
The impetus for "Fields
of Faith" began with Jeff
Martin, an Oklahoma Area
Director for the Fellowship
of Christian Athletes, who
conceived the idea: from 2
Chronicles, chapter 34 upon
searching how to address
the spiritual battles facing
today's generation of youth.
In the scripture, King Jo-
siah, who, was an influen-
tial teenager very similar to
"Fields of Faith" attendees
today, gathered his people
and challenged them to read
the Bible. As a result, they
changed the culture.


WHS PRINCIPAL Russell Hughes and members of the Varsity cheerleading squad would
like to invite everyone to the Second Annual Community Pep Rally on Thursday, Oct. 2, at
7p.m. after the junior varsity football game.


In 2004, the Josiah-in-
fluenced dream .came true
when students gathered
on school athletic fields
throughout three states for
the first "Fields of Faith"
event. That was the begin-
ning of ivhat has become
one of the most significant
faith-related gathering of
students in a single day.
"Throughout history, God
has sparked great spiritual
awakenings through young
people," said Martin. "And
that is the power of what
we are trying to accomplish
through 'Fields of Faith.' It
goes beyond its appearance
of a one-night rally on an
athletic field. It goes to the
heart of the future of a na-
tion. It's not just another
event, it's a change in cul-
ture."
While "Fields of Faith"
has its roots with FCA lead-
ership, the event is designed
to include multiple national
Christian organizations,
ministries and church 'de-
nominations. A local lead-
ership team, primarily of
students, will determine the
program of each "Fields of
Faith" event.
More information about
"Fields of Faith" is available
at www.FieldsofFaith.com.

event being held at Yates
Memorial Stadium (WHS)

ton High School at davisl@

Freeport wins district opener 35-16


By PATRICK CASEY
Nathan Hendrickson
ran for 118 yards and three
touchdowns as the Freeport
Bulldogs won their opening
district game of the year
35-16 to improve to 2-1 on
the season. The game was
played in front of a raucous
Homecoming crowd that
saw the host team help with
the celebration by building
a 28-7 halftime lead..
Freeport left little doubt
as to their desire to win the
game as the squad scored
touchdowns on their' first
four possessions of the con-
test. Hendrickson provided
runs of 4, 2 and 42 yards in


the opening half to put the
Wewahitchka Gators in a
deep hole.
Cody Binder gave Free-
port a 14-0 lead as he hauled
in a Cole Weeks pass from
28 yards out for the Bull-
dogs other score of the first
half.
Wewa's lone points in the
first 24 minutes of play came
on a 2-yard run by Colton
Price, who led the Gators in
rushing on the night with 63
rushing yards.
Any hopes Wewahitchka
had of getting back in .the
game vanished on the open-
ing kickoff as the Gators
fumbled the kickoff into the


hands of Bulldog Paul Hol-
mes. Holmes promptly raced
25 yards with the fumble
return to pad the Freeport
lead to 35-7 just seconds
into the third quarter.

While Freeport was work-
ing on running the ball, and
the clock, the Gators man-
aged to take advantage of
a Freeport fumble to march
32 yards in seven plays as
reserve quarterback Beau
McCorvey hit Tyler Lanter
on a 5-yard pass to cut the
lead to 35-14.
Wewa would not get
much closer' as the Free-
port defense forced a fumble


and stopped the Gators on
fourth down plays twice in
the fourth quarter. Freeport
punter Cole Weeks elected
to give the Gators a safety
with 1:02 left in the game as
he stepped out of the back of
the endzone instead of punt-
ing the football..
Weeks was 6-of-8 throw-
ing the football for 120 yards
and one touchdown. Cody
Binder rushed for 63 yards
and caught three passes for
62 more.
Freeport (2-1) will travel
to Franklin County (0-4) for
the Bulldogs second game of
the district slate on Friday,
October 3, at 7 p.m.

WHS Drama Club in "A Night


With the Stars"


The Walton High Drama
Club rolled out the proverbi-
al "red carpet" on Saturday,
September 20, as teenagers
paid homage to a few time-
less legends, some color-
ful icons and a few one-hit
wonders. The gala event,
billed as A Night With the
Stars," featured lip-synched
performances from famous


personalities like Sonny and
Cher, Pat Benatar, Michael
Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, the
Spice Girls, and Billy Idol.

A highlight throughout
the evening was the im-
provised commentary pro-
vided by RQsie O'Donnell
(aka Emilee Anderson) and
Whoopi Goldberg (aka Brit-


tany Wiggs). The show was a
short walk through musical
history, rock and rolled from
Elvis Presley to Madonna to
present day American Idol
Kelly Clarkson.

After a full cast onstage
celebration to "I, Like That
Old Time Rock and Roll"
and impromptu birthday


wishes to two audience
members, the Walton High
School (WHS) celebrities
congregated in the lobby to
sign autographs and pose
for candid fan photos. Da-
vid Pert, WHS Drama Club
sponsor, promises 'that this
is the first of many memo-
rable shows.

Supreme Court rules on



beach restoration


By LEAH STRATMANN
A lawsuit originally filed
in 2005 by a group of beach-
front homeowners during
Walton County's beach res-
toration project, which re-
stored, 26,200 feet of beach
over five miles in western
Walton County in 2006-
2007, questioned owner-
ship rights of the beach. On
April 19, 2007, the Florida
State Supreme Court held
a hearing to decide the case,
and at that time no ruling
was rendered. This week,
the Supreme Court ruled
in favor of Walton County,
upholding that the Beach
and Shore Preservation Act
does not unconstitutionally
deprive upland owners of
littoral, rights without just

one commissioner, Harry
Millsaps, not in attendance.
The second public hear-

as board vice-chair Jack Ab-

nual operating budget to be
$14,538,163,520. Abbit said
Walton County's property

County foregoes

participation in

Driftwood litigation


By DOTTY NIST
On the advice of their
legal counsel, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) took
no action with regard to en-
tering into a lawsuit filed
against developers of the
new interior portion of the
Driftwood Estates subdivi-

Two weeks previously,
the BCC had asked Mike
Burke, county legal counsel,
to review the lawsuit and
provide information on the


advisability of the county
entering into the ongoing
suit, which had been filed
in 2007 by owners of exist-
ing homes in Driftwood Es-
tates.
"I do not think it's the
appropriate vehicle for the
board to get involved in at
this time," Burke said of the
lawsuit at the Sept. 23 BCC
meeting. Burke did not rule
out future legal action on
the matter, in the absence

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2,2008


SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


As I sat at my kitchen
table, patiently using a
champagne glass to cut out
small disks of Milk Bone
dough so I could make fresh
home- made treats for my
dogs, I wished once again
there was somebody tak-
ing care of me as well as I
take care of my critters. The
home baking was really an
economic move because you
can make these snacks for
about 30 cents a pound and
anybody with a dog knows
how costly doggie treats are.
Plus, they'd be fresh and the
ingredients all-natural.
Since BradPittBull has
come into my life, he has
taken over the house. He
and Snazzy have fashioned
a way to play that keeps her
from getting hurt. I don't
think dogs recognize size at
all, so at first he was hurting
her when they tried to play,
but they have worked it out.
It's funny to watch them
romping over the hardwood
floors, half running and half
sliding as they play tug-o-
war with a squeaky toy.
Clearly I misnamed Brad-
PittBull and I'm considering
changing it to Houdini. I
have purchased every type
of dog restraint offered in
the pet stores. First I just
tried tethering him by his
collar, but he got his collar
off. Then I bought a har-


ness. He was out of it in less
time than it took me to put it
on him. He simply does not
want to be restrained and
probably never has been.
As I live on a highway, this
worries me.
When he first arrived, I
went outside with the dogs
and he would come back to
me before going out the still
incomplete fence gate. Now
he feels comfortable here so
he ignores me when I try to
keep him from going out-
side the safe area. When he
ventures into the street, I
come inside. I can't watch.
I picked him up in the first
place tb get him off the road.
I am loath to try a choke
chain for fear he will choke
himself, but I don't know
what else to try.
BradPittBull follows me
everywhere. I haven't been
in the bathroom alone since
he arrived, except when I
shower. I tried to pull him
into the shower to bathe
him, but he wasn't having
any of it, so when I shower
he just blocks the door from
the hallway until I come out.
He sleeps in my office while
I work, again blocking the
door, so I can't escape. When
I put a leash on Snazzy and
we go out the back door, he
knows we are getting in the
car so he waits patiently by
the car's back door for us to


arrive. Miss Snazzy would
take off for the woods if she
wasn't on a leash, but if you
ask her if she wants to ride,
she does a little dance and
doesn't mind my putting the
leash on her.
Unlike Snazzy, who would
wait in the car for hours for
my return, BradPittBull
jumped through the window
at the Freeport Library on
one of our first outings, so
I have to keep the windows
at a level that keeps him in.
All four windows could be
down all he way and Snazzy
would wait. She knows the
car goes nowhere without
me, and she wants to go
with me.
Snazzy has always been
rather independent. She
will sleep on my bed if the
spirit moves her, but she
isn't needy or neurotic in
that way. BradPittBull, on
the other hand, has to be in
the bed. He stretches him-
self out beside as if it is his
God-given right to be there.
Just like sleeping with any
man, he crowds me, and he
snores. He has to be touch-
,ing in some way, even if it
is only his foot, but his pre-
ferred method is supine be-
side me, complete with his
head on the pillow. Luckily.
for me, neither dog bothers
me until I wake up. I would
not like having an animal

that woke with the dawn
and thought I should too.
When BradPittBullbarks,
it is an awesome sound.
From outside, it sounds like
a wild animal is inside. At
first his bark scared Snazzy.
She would run over and sit
beside me, giving out a lit-
tle "ruff' as if to say, "OK,
big guy, I'll back you up,
but don't expect too much."
Now she's used to it and
thankfully does not join in
the chorus, allowing him to
work out his own demons.
Ah yes, life in Red Bay
with the critters is interest-
ing. If there is such a thing
as reincarnation, I want
to come back as someone's
cosseted pet. That would be
fitting.
In the meantime, if any-
one has any. ideas on re-

BUDGET

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


and the resolution carried.-
Next, Resolution 08-05
was read, setting the final
budget at $18,634,668. The
commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve the reso-
lution, which was to go into
effect immediately.
Bonnie McQuiston, repre-
senting the Walton County
Taxpayers Association, then
addressed the board. "We
should have come to the bud-
get workshop, but we didn't
know about it," she said.
Abbit informed McQuis-
ton that the workshop had
been advertised in local
newspapers and at the dis-
trict's Web site, www.swfd.
org. According to SWFD fis-
cal officer Brian Flanagan,
a two- to five-day notice is
required for such hearings.
Flanagan clarified that
the print advertising ap-
peared in the Destin Log,
prompting McQuiston to
ask if the paper had a sig-
nificant circulation in Wal-
ton County. Flanagan said
a newspaper with a paid
circulation was required,
thus ruling out the free Wal-
ton Sun weekly. The Beach
Breeze was not mentioned.
McQuiston also asked
about the SWFD's other
sources of revenue. Flana-
gan cited impact fees, while
Chief Rick Talbert said the
district was looking into col-
lecting false alarm fees.
In answer to another of
the citizen-activist's ques-
tions, Chief Ryan Crawford
said a collection agency had
been effective in collecting
roughly $37,000 in bad debt


for the SWFD since January
2006.
Talbert said the SWFD
continued to make progress
with fuel consumption and
energy-saving initiatives.
"'There has been a'downward
trend in the last 60 days,"
he said. "We are trying to be
a little more creative on how
we move our vehicles."
"What is the reasoning
behind the $500 a month or
medical coverage for com-
missioners?" McQuiston
asked. She added, without
elaborating: "A lot of you
work hard, and' some of you
don't."
"We don't get a retire-
ment plan," said Abbit. "Our
rationale was that it would
get more people interested."
McQuiston asked if Abbit
was referring to an incentive
to be present at the commis-
sion's monthly meetings.
"You're asking people to
take a legal responsibility,"
said Abbit. "This is the only
duly-elected position in the
county that is not compen-
sated."
Finally, responding to
McQuiston's inquiry about
upcoming elections, Abbit
informed her that he, Ed
Wright, and Donna Craw-
ford are up for reelection
this fall. Crawford is the
only board member running
unopposed.
The Walton County
Taxpayers Association ad-
dresses many concerns and
calls for a "common-sense
approach" to county leader-.
ship at its Web site, www.

By LEAH STRATMANN
As there was not a quo-
rum at the meeting last
week of the Coastal Dune
Lakes Advisory Board, the
attending board members,
county employees and citi-
zens had to be. content with
learning about updates on
ongoing issues.
Laura Pennington, a Wal-
ton County public works em-
ployee, reported the county
had received a Joint Coastal
Permit from Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tectidn (FDEP), good for five
years, which will allow the
county to open the Alligator,
Eastern and Western Lakes
when certain trigger points
are reached. The trigger
points differ for each lake.
Pennington said there
were 10 pages of specific
conditions that must be met
before action can be taken.
"Just because a trigger point
has been reached, it doesn't*
mean we have to take ac-
tion," she said, '"but the
coastal permit will allow for
faster action than receiving
an emergency permit from
FDEP. "Dig-outs must be
in specific spots as ordered
by FDEP. It will probably
require some help from the
surrounding, homeowners.
We want to keep the open-
ings as. natural as possible,
but the openings do some
natural meandering," she
stated.
It was noted the permit
will also allow for continu-
ing education for those liv-
ing around the lake and the
dynamic conditions of the
dune lakes, since these are
not like constant freshwater
lakes to which people are ac-
customed. Pennington noted
the county would regularly
monitor the shorebird activ-
ity, beach mice and the wa-
ter quality.
Cliff Knauer, an engi-
neer with Preble-Rish, Inc.
and an expert on coastal
dune lakes, was in a meet-
ing last month with FDEP
officials and the attorneys
on both sides of the decades-
long legal battle about Oys-
ter Lake. "We may be in a
situation now where the at-
torneys may be working to-
gether," he said. At issue is
a case of armoring that the
FDEP and the county says
is illegal, while a homeown-
er contends he was given'a
permit for the work.
Knauer also said the coun-
ty is finally getting ready to
spend some of the $480,000


grant money they have had
for six years on the Seahorse
Circle Bridge. "The county
awarded the contract at the
last meeting of the Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) and we should see


dirt turning within 30 days.
Seahorse Circle traffic will
be closed and the estimated
completion date is about five
months."
A date was set for the
next field trip to inspect the


coastal dune lakes. The trip
will take place on Oct. 16
and start at Lake Powell.
The public is welcome to at-
tend, but should make res-
ervations by calling Antho-
ny Austerman at 267-1955.

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS


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


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


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


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


* Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while
you wash your car and save more than 100 gal-
lons.


* Encourage your friends and nieghbors to be part
of a water-conscious community.


* Choose new water-saving appliances, like wash-
ing machines that save up to 20 gallons per load.


* Encourage your school system and local gov-
ernment to help develop and promote a water
conservation ethic among children and adults.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY. OCTOBER 2, 2008


BEACH

FROM PAGE 1-C
preme Court determined
that the case should be ad-
dressed as a "facial" chal-
lenge instead of an "applied"
challenge as originally.
heard by the First District
Court of Appeals. As such,
this decision focused on- the
Beach and Shore Preserva-
tion Act, which upholds the
state's constitutional duty
to protect Florida's beaches.
The act achieves a reason-
able balance between public
and private interests in the
shore. The justices reiter-
ated that the act benefits
upland owners by restoring
lost beach, by protecting
their property from future
storm*damage and erosion
and by preserving their
rights to use and view the
beach. The act also benefits
upland owners by protecting
their right of access to the
water. Finally, the act au-
thorizes actions to' reclaim
public beaches that are also
authorized under the com-
mon law after an event such
as a storm.
The beach restoration
project was vital in provid-
ing upland protection from
future storm surge and for
the economic vitality of the
county through tourism.
The project has proved effec-
tive after a series of recent
storms created high storm
surge, which could have
potentially caused erosion
along this stretch of beach.
Instead the additional sand,
some of which had moved
out to the near shore area,
was pushed back on to the
beach and in some cases led
to accretion.
The economic vitality to
the region is heavily depen-
dant on the area's beaches,
and research shbws that
the beaches are the num-
ber- one reason people visit
the area. In 2007, Walton
County's beaches attracted
2.9 million visitors, who
spent more than $1 billion
in Walton County. Tourism
supports more than 12,150
jobs and generates approxi-
mately $304 million in local
income annually.
The Walton County por-
tion of the project was paid
for using state grants, bed
tax collections, and a loan
that is pledged against fu-
ture bed tax revenue, which
is paid by visitors on short-
term lodging rentals.


CHARLES "SONNY"
MARES has been appointed
by the governor to serve on
the Florida Tourism Com-
mission. Mares' appoint-
ment was confirmed by the
'Florida Senate.


Mares appointed to state


tourism commission


By LEAH STRATMANN
Last Monday, Florida
Governor Charlie Crist an-
nounced his intention to ap-
point Charles "Sonny" Mares
to the Florida Tourism Com-
mission, a body nominally
chaired by Gov. Christ and
overseeing Visit Florida, the
premier sales and market-
ing organization promoting
tourism to Florida through
sales, advertising, promo-
tions, public relations, new
product development and
visitor services, domestical-
ly and internationally.
Mares is currently the ex-
ecutive director of the South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (SWTDC). He
said, "I'm delighted with
the appointment and it'cer-
tainly gives more-represen-
tation to Northwest Florida


A weekly discussion of
the issues by the leaders of
Walton County Democratic
and Republican parties.

"Congress considered ap-
proving the spending of up
to $700 billion taxpayer dol-
lars to cover bad mortgage
debts caused by foolish
banking decisions. What
went wrong and how can it
be prevented from happen-
ing again?"

Tim Norris, chairman
Walton County Republican
Party
We can fix this.
The mess with. Freddie
Mac and Fannie Mae caused


and Walton County. Darrel
Jones, my counterpart in
Okaloosa County, has been
on the board for years.
"The commission is the
board of directors of Visit
Florida, the privatized group
promoting Florida. They
have a huge staff and a huge
budget. This board oversees
all the policies of the orga-
nization, which is funded
in part from private funds
and in part by a rental car
surcharge. There are large
amounts of private dollars
that go into this organiza-
tion. At one time the division
of tourism was.strictly a di-
vision of state government,
but some years ago it was
privatized," Mares noted.
Mares got the call telling
him of his appointment on
Sept. 29. The appointment


this problem. The Wall
Street Journal has been
talking about it for years.
In the name of preventing
'discrimination', they made
changes to banking rules so
that people have been get-
ting loans that shouldn't
get them. Mortgage lend-
ers, legislators, investment
bankers and others are all
to blame for the crisis, which
stemmed from easy credit
and investors' appetite for
yield.
We're witnessing a des-
perate flight to safety by in-
vestors. People are running
away from financial assets
and financial institutions
simply because confidence


requires the approval of the
Florida Senate, which has
been given. Mares' appoint-
ment will run through June
2010.
Locally, two Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) mem-
bers expressed delight at the
news. Commissioner Larry
Jones said, "I am certainly
pleased to know that Sonny
has been recognized for his
abilities.. Sonny is an asset
to Walton County and now
he will be an asset to the
state of Florida."
"I arn ecstatic because
for a very long time Walton
County has had no repre-
sentation on this board,"
said Commissioner Sara
Comander. "Sonny is very
knowledgeable and will rep-
resent us very well."


has disappeared. With home
prices falling, foreclosures
and defaults are the root
cause of the run against all
types of mortgage-related
bonds held by the banks.
Foreclosures-today are less
than 3 percent. During the
1930s, they were 50 percent.
Our unemployment rate to-
day is at about 6.1 percent.
Back in 1982, it was near 11
percent and for most of the
1930s, it was over 20 per-
cent. We will get through
this.
And there are construc-
tive policy measures that can
help fix the market's prob-

of a successful resolution of
stormwater drainage issues
in the subdivision.
He explained that, in his
opinion, the goals of plan-
tiffs in the existing lawsuit
are not the same as that of
the county, which is to as-
sure that the developers
comply with the conditions
of their development order.
He reported that work
is expected to start imme-
diately on improvements
that were part of an agree-
ment between developer 01-
son and Associates and the
county to correct stormwa-
ter drainage infrastructure
deficiencies in the interior of
the subdivision.
Representing the devel-
oper, attorney George Ralph
Miller confirmed that fund-
ing is now available to put


a contractor to work im-
mediately on the agreed-on
items. "My client is trying;"
he said, "these are difficult
times."
Burke also reported that
the county is close to acquir-
ing a very important histor-
ic drainage easement in the
subdivision that is located
on privately-owned property
and is currently closed-off.
Greater Driftwood Es-
tates spokesman Alan Os-
borne reported to the com-
missioners on the impact of
the rise of the level of the
Choctawhatchee Bay that
accompanied the recent ar-
rival of Hurricane Ike on the
Gulf Coast.
Osborne reported that
the bay "got up into the
pavement" in his subdivi-
sion, even in the absence


of any rain. He added that
the gated emergency exit for
the subdivision, which was
not opened, became flooded
earlier than the 200-plus-
lot subdivision's one access
road. That road, according
to Osborne, "has been un-
der water 17 times in four
years."
Driftwood homeowners
are seeking a court decision
to get an alternate access
road through Sandestin re-
opened. That road had been
closed off by Sandestin de-
cades earlier. A court date
on that case is scheduled
for August 2009. The com-
missioners authorized their
legal counsel to work with
attorneys involved in that
litigation to seek and re-
quest an earlier court date
on that matter.

The weather
was perfect and
t h e
temperature
just right for
any type of
outdoor activity
this past
weekend. That
is what a few
thousand
others thought
as they revved-up their
engines and hit the roads
on their tricked-out hawgs.

If you were anywhere on
the roads this past
weekend, you saw more
than the usual traffic of
Harley Davidson
motorcycles clogging the
main thoroughfares of
Walton County. From
ladies on their "pink
ponies" and personalized
bikes, to guys riding cycles
with fat tires and custom
chrome, they were all
heading to Frank Brown
Park in Panama City
Beach for the annual
Thunder Beach Bike Fest.
With tags hailing from
Mississippi, Texas,
Alabama, Georgia,
Tepnessee, South Carolina,
North Carolina, Louisiana
and all over Florida, U.S.
98 became a bike rally and
the city of Panama City
Beach became the
motorcycle parking lot of
the South.
For more than a decade,
the event has taken place
along the Emerald Coast,
and culminated at Frank
Brown Park and
throughout other locations
in Panama City Beach. It
has become a staple behind
the Sturgis, North Dakota
and Daytona Beach Rally
weeks that take place
throughout the year.
Every May and October,
thousands of hawg-riding,
leather adorning,
customized cruising,
Harley riders make their
way to the annual event. It
gives them a chance to
show off their own bikes,
swap ideas and thoughts of
interest with other bikers,
buy and sell parts,
accessories and new bikes,
while just having a chance
to get to know what biking
in the South is really all
about.
For many, it is their
vacation. They pack up the
saddle bags, shine the
chrome, find their favorite
rally souvenier t-shirt, and
head out on the open roads
for another adventure on
two wheels. Well,


sometimes they have the
side car, while others don't
care to balance on just the
two treads and opt for the
third wheel.
The rally invites avid
riders, as well as beginners,
to the bay city and rolls out
the red carpet, or should I
say, the concrete strip, for
anyone looking to learn.
Vendors from across the
country also make their
way to the fesitval park site
and sell a variety of goods
from accessories for the
bike, riding apparel, parts,
and motorcycle insurance.
They even promote other
bike rally events taking
place throughout the
United States.
Beginning on Thursday,
a flood of vendor trailers,
U-hauls, semis, staging,
road barricades, and of
course motorcycles, began
making their way down
U.S. 331 and onto U.S. 98.
They checked in to hotels,
condos, homes, RV parks
and other places to lay
their head after a long day
of riding and rallying.
"We always leave out
from Detroit on Monday of
Thunder Beach, and take
our time getting down here,
just stopping to enjoy what
all God has provided for us
for a views" said Melissa
Tybee of Detroit. This was
her and her husband's
fourth straight year of
coming to Thunder Beach.
Even bikers are getting
involved in this year's
election, as numerous bikes
had McCain and Obama
flags and banners flapping
in the wind behind their
bikes. Other organizations
as well, were represented
this weekend, like Riders
for Christ, Wheels of Love
Charity 'organization,
Heaven's Angels and state
chapters of Harley riders
from across the country.
Numerous charities also
benefited from the influx of
hawg riders this weekend.
Besides local charities like
Toys for Tots getting hefty
donations, other
organizations got money
from bike. clubs who were
sponsored by individuals,


Spaying
l them to
I take the
Ip s trip and
.r a i s e
money.
S The
S- city of
Panama
City
Beach,
Panama City, and even
parts of Walton County
reaped the benefits of
Thunder Beach this past
weekend., Hotels and
condos have become to
heavily rely on the event
that helps the local
economy during the off-
seaosn time of the year.
Once considered to be a
"roughneck"- hobby, biking
has now made a name for
itself. Riders are made up
of doctors, lawyers and
even pastors, such as the
men of the cloth that
conducted sunrise services
and chapel meetings on the
beach for those bikers who
wanted to include religion
with their weekend. Don't
think there was not a party
scene, but nevertheless
officials said that there
were a minimum of
incidents that they had to
respond to and more
trouble with locals "acting
the fool" during the
weekend-long event.
One of the most common
things told to me during
his past weekend was that
bikers want to share the
road, and that other
vehicles should please
watch out for them on their
two-wheel works of art.
They said due to stricter
laws and stiffer penalties
for both the riders and
those in vehicles, much
still needs to be taught and
learned on both sides.
For this part of the
Emerald Coast, it is a
welcome sight to see the
bikes roll into our
communities, especially
during these hard and'
scary economic times,
putting hundreds of
thousands of dollars into
our ecomony. Who knows,
with gas prices where they
are, we might all be
trading in the tie for a
helmet, throwing away the
briefcase for a set of
saddlebags and tearing off
onto the open roads on a
tricked-out hawg with
nothing between us and
the road accept a piece of
glass and a prayer.
RIDE ON, TWO-
WHEELED REBELS!

are the two biggest mortgage
companies in the United
States. Due to their misad-
ventures into the sub-prime
mortgage market, these two
companies have been left
reeling from a lack of cash.
How did this crisis come
about? Corporate greed and
a lack of federal regulation
are two of the culprits.
When President Clinton
left office in 2000, regula-
tions were in place that kept
Wall Street and the finan-
cial powers that be under
control. One of the many
things that the current ad-
ministration did to usher in
our present financial crisis
was to "deregulate" these
areas. This philosophy was
supported by Sen. John Mc-
Cain. Once this deregulation
took place, financial institu-
tions decided to invest in
the sub-prime loan market.
At the height of the real es-
tate boom, practically any-
one could get a mortgage,
regardless of credit history.
Money was loosely loaned to
consumers wvho would not
normally be eligible for a
mortgage loan. This lending
strategy was a way of mak-
ing large amounts of money
due to higher interest rates
and extended mortgage
terris.
The, sub-prime mortgage
market turned out to be ex-
actly .what the name indi-
cated sub-prime. Borrow-
ers in this market quickly
found the adjustable rate
mortgage payments they
were supposedly locked
into start "adjusting" faster
than anyone anticipated.
Home-owners were having
a hard time making their
house payments. As these
payments became more and
more delinquent, foreclosure


was inevitable. Foreclosure
rates grew dramatically in
the United States until they
reached epidemic propor-
tions. When this happened,
the lending institutions
were left holding billions of
dollars in foreclosure papers
in a market that had turned
sour.
The current administra-
tion's deregulatory actions
have helped the financial
market make its proverbial
bed. Now the, government
wants to use our taxpayer
.dollars to avoid having to
sleeping in it. Personally,
I do not believe that we,
asitaxpayers, should be re-
sponsible for the failings of
a corporation, whatever its
cause.
To prevent this type of
financial disaster from hap-
pening again, the govern-
ment must get involved on
certain levels. The federal
government must be allowed
to regulate the mortgage
markets. Had the regula-
tions present in the 1990s
not been removed, we could
have seen this crisis com-
ing and perhaps curtailed or
even prevented it.
The next president of the
United States has a monu-
mental task ahead of him.
He will have, to clean up
from the incredible devasta-
tion caused by the inept and
unethical administration of
the past eight years. I pray
we will elect someone that
can "bailout" America from
the horrors of the current
administration, and not a
self proclaimed 'de-regu-
lator' who helped to get us
here in the first place. As
Harry Truman said, "If you
want to live like a Republi-
can, you'd better vote Demo-
crat."

tour at Watercolor




to benefit SWCC


The popular Telluride
MountainFilm on Tour re-
turns to the WaterColor Inn
and Resort. for its eighth
annual run Nov. 7-8. This
year, a portion of its pro-
ceeds will benefit the South
Walton Community Council
(SWCC). The donated funds
will help support the pri-
mary mission of the SWCC,
which is to preserve and
protect the extraordinary
natural resources of south
Walton, from its beaches
and coastal dune lakes to its
state forests, parks 'and the
Choctawhatchee River and
Bay.

SThe organization is a fit-
ting recipient as all of this
year's films share the theme
of "energy" (bio, solar, hydro


and wind), with indepen-
dent filmmakers celebrat-
ing community, adventure,
culture .and 'environmental
preservation.
"We're proud that Moun-
tainFilm will not only con-
tinue to culturally enrich
the community, but this
year also financially sup-
port efforts to preserve and
protect the natural beauty
of south Walton," said Rod
Wilson, senior vice presi-
dent of the St. Joe Compa-
ny. "In today's day and age,
of heightened, conservation
awareness, we hope filmgo-
erd will be 'energized' by the
indie films and inspired to
support the SWCC."
Telluride MountainFilm
on Tour will be in the Water-
Color Amphitheater on Nov.


7-8 from 6 p.m. 10 p.m.
The South Walton Com-
munity Council will have a
table at the event for those
who want to learn more
about the organization. This
year's program is also part
of the Taste of the Beach.
(www.tasteofthebeachfla.
com) wine and food festival,'
and a cash bar serving fine
wines will be on offer.
Blankets, folding chairs;
and outside snacks and
drinks are permitted in the
amphitheater. No pets, glass
or large coolers are allowed.

son for:one night and $40
per person for both nights.

FL dove hunters get higher bag limit


SWhen Florida's first
phase of the mourning dove
season opens Saturday, Oct.
4, hunters will find an unex-
pected bonus -- an increase
in the bag limit from 12 to
15 birds. The daily bag limit
is a combined bag limit and
applies to both mourning
doves and white-winged
doves.

Prior to the 2008 hunting
season, states had the op-
tion of going with a higher
bag limit but fewer days of
hunting. This year the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service
said states could increase
bag limits without giving up
hunting days.
Florida's three-phase
dove season runs 72 days.
This year it's Oct. 4-27; Nov.
15-30; and Dec. 13 Jan.
11, 2009. Hunting during
the first phase is legal from
noon to sunset. Hunting is
allowed during the latter


two phases from 30 minutes
before sunrise to sunset.
Kurt Hodges, Florida
Fish arid Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC),
assistant small game coor-
dinator, said states within
the service's Dove Eastern
,Management Unit are col-
lecting many types of data
to ensure dove populations
remain unhindered by the
bag limit increase.
"Some states are doing
things a little differently,
but here in Florida, we've
been banding doves since
2003. We've banded approx-
imately 6,000 birds dur-
ing the summer months,"
Hodges said. "If hunters kill
a banded bird, there's in-
formation on the band that
tells them where to report
the band information.
"Also, we're continuing
with our 'call count sur-
veys,' and the service will
be asking randomly selected


hunters to provide wings so.
they can be aged. The other.
significant source of data
comes from the Harvest In-
formation Program survey,
which is a no-cost program,
.required for all migratory:
bird hunters."
Hodges said if trends:
show that dove nuinbers,
decline significantly in 'the,
future for any reason, there,
are built-in triggers in the
data-collection system .that'
will signal both state and'
federal wildlife managers'
that changes are needed.

The 2008-2009 migra-
tory bird regulations for'
dove, snipe, woodcock, rail,
moorhen, crow and .early
waterfowl seasons may
be obtained by contacting
the FWC's regional offices,

A high impact en-
tertainment expe-
rience for all ages,
"JUNGUA Descen-
dents of the Dragon"
celebrates the Chi-
nese culture in an
explosion of kungfu,
acrobatics, music and
dance. The amaz-
ing skills of China's
finest acrobat's and
martial arts mas-
ters appear as part
of a national tour on
Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
at the Mattie Kelly
Fine & Performing
Arts Center on the
Niceville campus of
Northwest FL. State
College.
Tickets for JUN-
GUA are now 'avail-
able for $25 each
from the box office
at (850) 729-6000
or by web at www.
mattiekellyartscen-
ter.org. A group dis-
count of $5 off per
ticket (tickets $20
each) is available for
groups of 10 or more
tickets purchased at
the same time.


SHOWN HERE IS feminine grace and beauty of China's famed female contortionists
and acrobats in JUNGUA.


In addition to
lightning fast fight
sequences and tradi-
tional weapons dem-
onstrations, the Sha-
olin Disciples will
perform super-hu-
man feats of"Qigong"
in which their bod-
ies become impervi-
ous to spears, beds
of nails, and various
rocks, bricks, sticks,
and steel bars bro-
ken over their heads
and other parts of
their bodies. Years of
training and medita-
tive techniques allow
the Disciples to chan-
nel their "Qi" (which
may be loosely trans-
lated to "energy'") to
a particular part of
the body through ex-
treme concentration.
Entirely set to
evocative music with
no narrative, some
scenes in JUNGUA
are short vignettes,
while some are more
poetic and still oth-
ers are like living
paintings. Inspira-
tion for the show's
themes come from
Chinese history, art,
myths, religions, and
philosophies.
The idea to pres-
ent Chinese cul-
ture from a Western
perspective began
with producer Yan
Yan Zhao's original
idea to do a Shaolin
kungfu show. .The


inspiration was to
combine the mascu-
linity of kungfu with
the feminine grace
and beauty of Chi-
na's famed female
contortionists and
acrobats..
"The concept be-
hind the show is
to present a micro-
cosm of traditional
Chinese culture in
a way that is excit-
ing and accessible to
western audiences.
We wanted to create
a great evening .of
entertainment based
on authentic Chinese
culture, but without
cultural barriers,"
said director Eddy
McGuire,
The Mattie Kelly,
