, OUTGOING MAYOR WANDA SMITH (1) receives gift
and a plaque of appreciation from the city.


PAXTON'S NEW MAYOR HAYWARD THOMAS is sworn in by Judge Kelvin Wells.


By BR UCE COLLIER
On Nov. 4, while the rest
of the nation was engaged
in electing local, state and
national candidates, it was
business as usual in Paxton.
The Town Council held its
regular monthly meeting. A
short business agenda was
lengthened by the swearing-
in of three council members
and a new niayor. Outgo-
ing Mayor Wanda Smith
received a plaque of appre-
ciation, a gift, and words of
praise from her friends and
colleagues. -
Two of the Council mem-
bers were being sworn-in
were incumbents Jen-
ice Armstrong and Bobby
Kemp, recently re-elected


to another term. Also sworn
was ,the newest member
of the Council, Mark War-
ren..Hayward Thomas was
sworn in as mayor, having
served in that office in years
past. Walton County Circuit
Court Judge Kelvin. Wells
administered the oath of of-
fice and congratulated each
official.
The Council's regular
meeting immediately fol-
lowed. Kemp, Armstrong,
and Warren took their seats,
with members Ann Sexton
and Bill McRae also pres-
ent. Kemp was appointed
as chairman, with McRae
as vice-chair. Bank account
signature cards were autho-
rized for the newly-sworn


officials who did not have
them. .
Ordinance 08-02, raising
sewage and water rates in
and out of the city for resi-
dential, school and commer-
cial users, received its final
reading, and was adopted
by the Council without ob-
jection.
Old business included an
update on the waste water
treatment plant and a grant,
and a report that all the
seeds had been planted in
the sprayfield, as required.
The new mayor request-
ed that the Council approve
raising the NSF charge for
checks to the city to $35, up
from the current charge of
$25. The Council approved.


The mayor also reported that
the Town Hall kitchen needs
a stove, and that there has
been a problem with mold
from standing water. The
Council agreed to repair the
kitchen's back wallto fix the
water problem. The Council
took no action on the stove,
but acknowledged the need
for one. .
In department reports,
Warren said that the sprin-
klers on the sprayfield are
not working, and quoted an
estimate to replace them.
McRae said that the city
needs to implement a regu-
lar maintenance program
to prevent having to replace
all the sprinklers at once in
future. The Council agreed


to replace the sprinklers.
Armstrong asked for ac-
tion to be taken about com-
plaints of fire ants. Sexton
saidtherearestillanumber
of broken street lights. May-
or Thomas said he would
get it done. Warren also
asked to extend a one-year
warranty on some metering
equipment used by the city.
The Council voted to ap-
prove a Christmas bonus
(technically a "one-time
raise") for city employees,
and to give out the checks
before Thanksgiving.
Following adjournment,
the Council and attendees
had a reception and refresh
ments in honor of the new
officials and outgoing may-
or.

] Walton County Tax Col-
lector (WCTC) Rhonda
Skipper is providing an op-
portunity for Walton County
property owners to pay their
taxes without making the

able to receive tax payments
and answer questions relat-
ed to taxes. Walton County
property owners are asked
to bring their tax bill with
them to the on-site location.
The R.A.T.E. locations

lence at a residence on West
Point Washington Road in
the Santa Rosa Beach area.
The female that called in ad-
vised that the male subject
involved had left on a white

responded to the residence,
another deputy spotted the
vehicle on West Point Wash

tried to pull the vehicle over
but the driver drove into the
driveway of the residence.
While the driver was still in
the vehicle deputies noticed
that the driver was holding

of his vehicle he kept the
gun aimed under his chin

them; instead he kept walk-

Will Presidential Election Affect


YOUt in OSiment
We have just completed a truly
historic election. As a citizen, you'll
want to follow how President-elect
Obama and the new Congress
address issues of importance to
you. But as an investor, you might
be particularly interested in how the
election results can affect your
investments, especially given the
recent Wall Street turmoil. Based on
what happened on November 4,
should you make any changes to
your portfolio?
mayTo1 ansi us it t r e u
history of the financial markets
under different political scenarios,
according to Ned Davis Research.
Since 1901, the Dow Jones
Industrial Average has shown an
average annualized return of about
12 percent under Democratic
presidents, compared to about 8
percent under Republicans. When
Democrats have controlled
Congress, the Dow's average
annualized return has been about 11
percent, compared to about 8
percent when the Republicans were
in control.
Since 1925, long-term
government bonds have returned
more than 7 percent under
Republican presidents, compared to
about 3.4 percent under Democrats,
When Republicans have controlled
Congress, the bond market also
fared better than when Democrats
were in charge.
But while it's interesting to study
the past, it's not necessarily
in ttructiveca nthe futureJs true
government spending and industry
regulations, any given president and
Congress can affect economic
growth, jobs, interest rates and
inflation and all these factors, in
turn, can affect the financial
markets. Still, it's impossible to

Injunction to be filed to stop pit operation


Board regarding the alleged
violations on Nov. 20. Rho-
des asked ifhe would still be
required to respond to that
notice to appear.
.Burke stated that as a
result of the county seeking

be withdrawn from the code'
enforcement board's Nov. 201
agenda.
'
The BCC motion to au
theorize seeking an injunc-
tion was approved by unani-
mous vote.


Road area. The vote came af-
ter the commissioners heard
that Walton County Code
Enforcement had exhausted
its efforts to get the owner to
comply with county code.
According to information
provided by code enforce-
ment at the Nov. 10 meet-
ing:
There had been a consent
agreement in.2002 between
owner Thomas Hicks and
the county to resolve alleged
violations on the pit prop-
erty. These included the


absence of a development
order for the business and
operation of a borrow pit in
an Estate Residential larid
use area contrary to code
provisions.
The consent agreement
allowed operation to contin-
ue on a l2-acre parcel of dis-
turbed land within the pit
property. The agreement re-
garding those 12-acres was
renewed in 2007, to remain
in effect through 2010, in
order to allow Hicks time to
file for a large-scale amend-


nient. The purpose of the
amendment was a change to
the land use classification of
the property so that the bor-
row pit operation would be
an allowable use.
In October 2008 Hicks
was charged with alleged
violations for sand mining
outside the limits of the
agreed-to 12-acre parcel and
in connection with crush-
ing of concrete and storage
of concrete and debris on
the pit property, resulting
in stop work orders being


imposed. In late October,
code enforcement reported
posted stop work orders be-
ing removed from the prop-
erty and thrown into nearby
woods. .
Jack Rhodes was present
at the Nov. 10 BCC meeting
to represent' the pit opera-
tion. Rhodes provided no in-
formation but posed a ques-
tion to the commissioners
in reference to the property
owner having been notified
to appear before the Walton
County Code Enforcement


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County commis-
sioners recently complied
with their legal counsel's
request to authorize seeking
an injunction against a bor-
row pit operation.
On Nov. 10, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
to authorize Mike Burke,
county attorney, to file an
injunction to stop mining
operations at the Thomas
Picks borrow pit off Ed
Browli Road in the Rock Hill

Richard Carlyle Smith Jr.
was arrested on Oct. 22 by
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO) for abuse, ag-
gravated abuse and neglect
of a child. The arrest report
states that between the
dates of April l and Oct. 18,
Smith "caused bodily injury
to a child or children, which
left bite marks and bruises


on their buttocks, legs and
heels on several occasion
while they were in the de-
fendants care."
According to the report,
after being read his rights
and signing a waiver, Smith
admitted to biting the vic-
tims on several different
occasions because "of cry-
ing and he was mad." Smith
also allegedly admitted in


the report he had caused
bruises on the buttocks and
legs of another child and got
rough with said child and
bit the child cin the right
face cheek.
The report noted that "He
had a temper and would
cause injury to the children
when he got mad" and that
he "caused the injury while
at the apartment where he


lives with the mother of the
children."
Smith was charged with
two third-degree felonies,
cruelty toward a child and
infliction of .physical or
mental injury. At the time
of this article, Smith had
made a first appearance in
court and his bond was set
at $100,000 cash or profes-
sional band.

code, (Chapter 12, planning
board, section 12.01, mem-
bership and appointment).
The amendment would add
a representative of the Wal-
ton County School Board
to the planning board. The
representative will be a
non-voting, ex-officio mem-
ber as outlined by Flori-
da Statute 1013.33(2)(a),
which requires the inter-
local agreement between
the Walton County District
School Board and DeFuniak
Springs to jointly establish
specific ways in which the
plans of the district school
board and local government.
are to be coordinated.
The Council next ap-
proved thy consideration of
reosn1 n r seal ua-
(EAR). This report recom-
mends and evaluates fu-
ture land use and grow for
the city from 2008 through
2016.
The Council also ap-
proved an inter-local agree-
ment for Communities for a
Lifetime. The agreement fo-
cuses on the city's participa-
tion with the entity, to help
all citizens, but focuses on
seniors.

The audacity



of change

13y RON KELLEY

reao y Iros n sg r eOh f,=
witnessed an event that made me proud of my hometown.
Of the 36,847 registered voters in Walton County, 73.9
percent of them voted! Outstanding! More to the point, of
those voters, 73 percent overwhelmingly rejected Barack
Hussein Obama as president. No matter what else hap-
pened, Walton County voters can know that they did the
right thing.
Congratulations are also due to the national media,
who finally proved they could elect a president. Big Media
spent that last year protecting and covering for Obama,
while treating any of John McCain's criticisms of him as
a campaign strategy error. It Attacked Sarah Palin with
a ferocity I have never before witnessed. Big Media alone
created Obama's mythical image and managed to sell it
to a slim majority of liberal voters. anxious to believe in
some sort of mystical messiah. However, even with aU
the relentless fawning and gushing by the media, Obama
only gathered 53 percent of the vot'e. That's far from the
landslide that any reasonably good candidate might have
achieved, given the unwavering and unquestiomng sup-
port by the media. -
For a while, we will have to endure the Obama/Media
honeymoon and the endless reports about which designer
outfits lurs. Obama will wearing to the inaugural balls
and what kind of puppy Barack is getting for the little
Obamas.
The good news is it won't.1ast. The same red flags that
existed before the election are still there. During the cam-
paign, the media covered for Obama when he pretended
welfare checks were "tax cuts." When an ordinary citizen
asked Obama an honest question about his tax plan, the
media came to the rescue again by going after the citizen.
However, Big Media's love affair with Obama is sure to
end in divorce. Already, the networks and news magazines
are seeing the error of their ways. They are just realizing
that a majority of.Americans recognized what they were
doing during the Obama campaign and that people no lon-
ger trust Big Media to be fair, balanced, unbiased or ac-
curate. Pity.
They must also suspect that a majorit.4 of Americans
will soon realize that giving "tax cuts" to 95 percent of
Americans, even though only 60 percent actually pajr taxes,
means that 35 percent will get welfare checks (and guess
who gets to foot the bill?). When Obama lets the Bush tax
cuts expire in 2010, your taxes will go up, assuming you
pay income taxes. It's all part of "spreading the wealth
around" and "redistributive change."
Obama's troubling connections to racists and radicals
still exist. From the Wright stuff to Parrakhan, Akerse
Rezko and Acorn, those associations, just like the shady
campaign contributions from Europe and the Middle East,
will continue to exst.
Valid, unanswered questions about Obama's birth and
eligibility to run for president still exist,.despite the rul-
ing by a single judge who opined that an American citizen
has "no standing" and therefore no legal right to ask those
questions.
Obama's "Fairness Doctrine" is meant to stifle free
speech especially conservative free s eech. This was tried
once before and failed miserably.
Obama also said that he wants to create a "Civilian Na-
tional Security Force." At a campaigner rally he said, "We
cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to
achieve the national security objectives that we've set.
We've got to have a civilian national security force that's
just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded." That
sounds eerily like the Secret Police.
Obama said that the coal industry will be bankrupted
because of his policy of capping greenhouse emissions, and
this would "necessarily" raise energy costs. Higher elec-
tricity costs great!
We've talked about a few of the things Obama is for,
now let's look at what he's against.
All the bitter, religious people should buy their guns
now. Obama is aiming to make it even tougher to own one.
He also supports the Freedom of Choice Act, which would
overturn almost every abortion restriction in America. He
opposes the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which was
passed by Congress. He opposes a law banning partial-
birth abortion, which was upheld by the Supreme Court.
He promised to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage
Act, which was passed overwhelmingly by Congress and
signed by President Bill Clinton. We won't even talk about
his welfare plan for illegal aliens or cutting "tens of bil-
lions of dollars in wasteful spending" on the military.
Still, we have witnessed an historic event. America has
elected its first black president. As Mathew Staver, dean
of Liberty University School of Law, noted, "The majority
of Americans looked beyond race to elect Barack Obama.
They also looked beyond the content of his character and
his left-wing agenda, because they were fed up with the
current leadership and preferred change over substance."


I hope this was the change you had in mind, because
after Barack Hussein Obama gets in your pocket, that's all
you'll have left. Can we remember this in four years?
Yes, we can,

Thank you, thank you, Florida. Tharik you for voting
to elect Senator Barack Obama as our 44th President. In
these tough times and troubling times, we sorely need an
intelligent and inspirational leader who can get our coun-
try back on the right track.
Please let us all put aside whatever partisan differences
remain and instead come together to give President-elect
Obama our full support through the coming months so he
can act quickly and effectively to get our economy back on
solid footing.
David Holder

Editor:
My wife and I purchased a itice property on Coy Burgess
Loop a couple years ago. We are building our retirement
home there. Now, it has come to our attention that the (De-
Funiak Springs) city council has given approval for negoti-
ating the purchase of land behind ours for use is a possible
new wellsite. We are moving out of the city because we
dont want to be governed by the city political scene, or la
assessed future taxes such as impact fees, etc.; which are
coming down the pike, and we want our own well to treat
our own drinking water.
That being said, we have serious doubts as to why the
city wants a new well in the first place. It was mentioned
at a council meeting that the current wells.are getting old.
Water doesn't get old, orily the equipment that must be re-
placed or maintained over time does.
Furthermore, the supposed problem of "future needs"
was discussed. With govei*ninents in a financial pickle and
real estate markets tanked (especially in our state), then
what growth are they worried about? I, for one, would like
to see the proof of this growth and the need for another well
before vte are stuck with new taxes and/or fees to pay for a
new structure and property.
Moreover, this economy and our local politicians need to
put the people's monies to better usage than building more
wells. They want to get a grant, but it only pays part (the
rest will be raised by taxes and fees). We certainly don't
need more taxes or fees of any.kind. I am sure that the
grant they viant and others will still be out there after the
current recession is past us all. Let's slow down and look
closely at what we spend our money on before we obligate
our citizens for unneeded services.
Maybe they are looking at selling water to the southern
part of our county for profits in the future. That was tried
in Hillsborugh County with disastrous results. It ended up
drying out the private wells in the area. They planned on
selling water to Pinellas County where they were experi-
' fencing a saltwater intrusion problem in their wells (sound
like south Walton?). Long story short it was a nightmare!
So if you live on or near Coy Burgess Loop (or anywhere
in the city for that matter), be careful about not getting in-
volved, it could be your well going dry next year. They will
be drawing down on the same water aquifer no matter how
many wells they dig, so the number of wells versus increas-
ing the size of existing wells should be looked at closely if
more volume is needed for our town. At least look at the
figures for our benefit.
It just strikes me odd that they want to be south of .In-
terstate 10 when the majority of the city is north. Please be
vigilant on this issue and let's make sure they do the right
thing. I can be reached at DWATSON1@panhandle.rr.com

Hi, my name is Gretchen Kent, 2008 Little Miss De-
Funiak Springs, and I am 8 years old and in the second
grade at Maude Saunders Elementary School.
On October 11, 2008, I was so.excited to.get to represent
my hometown.of DeFuniak Springs at the National Pea-
nut Festival Pageant. I will never forget getting to meet all
of the Little Misses from Florida, Georgia and Alabama. I
want to thank my town of DeFuniak Springs for giving me
the chance to:take part in the pageant and making memo-
ries that I will always remember. I am so proud to repre-
sent my community when I go to other towns for different
activities.
For the last eight months, I have enjoyed getting to go to
many Peanut Festival activities. I went to get-acquainted
parties and teas in many different hometowns, ribbon cut-
tings, and of course all the parades were such a blast. I met
-so many queens and we have become very good friends.
It has been furr getting to meet so many people in my
hometown. You all have been so nice to me during my
reig 111 never forget when we went to Dothan for my prac-
tide for the pageant .and all the queens got to have police
escorts to McDonald's. It made us feel like we were movie
stars. After my practice, I got the biggest surprise when my
family came to pick me up with my very own limo ride so
,that we could go out to eat.
I would like to thank my friends and family for support-
ing me during this time and coming to see me in the pag-
eant. It meant so much to be remembered by all of youp
Twant to thank Alice Alford, Miss DeFuniak.Springs, fot
being so nice to me at all of the activities that we went to
together. You are an "Awesome" big sister.
I want to especially thank my sponsors, Dr. Margherita
Demoya, Dr. William Neale, SunTrust Bank, Bear Creek
Creative. Services, and Walton High School Anchor Club.
Thank you Ms. Teresa for getting all the queens together
for all the activities. We always have a great time!
Thanks again and I look forward to continue to repre-
sent DeFuniak Springs until February when I crown the
new Little Miss DeFuniak Springs.

Editor,
Because of this election I have reconsidered my affilia-
tion with the GOP.
My first presidential vote was in Georgia for Sen. Barry
Goldwater. For decades thei-eafter, not only was there pride
in Republican philosophy but also there was air adherence
to those principals.
For generations, notables such as William Buckley and
the many Republican Noble Peace Prize winners in eco-
nomics were showcased as intellectuals. They were elitist
that i-epresented a creative, forward thinking party that
understood all the complexities of government.
But now after eight years of W., the moral rise, then
tainted decline of the religious right, the showcase of an old
warlord candidate, his naive VP choice and Joe the Plumb-
er, the party has redefined itself as the historic southern
white."Dixiecrat Party" of Republican Strom Thurmond.
Sadly, it appears that the red swath from Texas upward
to Canada not only represents most of the South, but also
states with significant high school drop out rates.
I feel pride for those southern states that have confront-
ed their biases and I have respect for those southerners
that listen to more than just one national news network. I
have faith that the moderate Christian leaders will reel-in
the preachers whose views breach the teachings of Christ.
And with this new administration I have renewed faith in
America.

Editor-
By the first day of the 2008, my hope was that Ameri-
cans had finally acknowledged how wrong they were with
their deplorable treatment of veterans of the Vietnam War.
Herald reporter Leah Stratmann (Herald-Breeze, 11/6/08)
would have us believe that, stateside during that time,
there existed "an ideological war." I believe her attempt
is to give credence to the behavior of those gutless masses
that lacked the courage to confront their government, in-
stead taking comfort in dumping vitriol on the US mili-
tary.
On November 4, I witnessed a return to that unconscio-
nable opinion as America chose for a president, an indi-
vidual who has never served a minute in defense of the
United States and is known to consort with terrorists (Wil-
liam Ayers, Rashid Kalidi, Hamas, Hezbollah, et al). I sug-
gest that veterans of the War on Terror have been told, by
the results of the vote, a majority of Americans have now
turned their back on them. Their efforts to defend the Con-
stitution of the United States "against all enemies, foreign
and domestic" were in vain. William J. Vorwald

captured by the Germans
during his very first day of
combat. Wounded twice, he
was sent to a POW camp in
Poland where he was held
until the end of the war.
The letters, in and of
themselves, were not par-
ticularly remarkable, but
they must have seemed like
a lifeline to the young pri-
vate. The typed letters were
sent by the young soldier's
mother, Mrs. Donie Laird,
and were full of news from
home.
In one letter she wrote,
"Well, I can't tell you how
thrilled we all were when we
got your picture. We were so
thankful for the picture, and
glad to hear you are still all
right."
The letter goes on to de-
scribe the family's crops,
"the finest that could be,"
and gives accounts of Aunt
Beulah and Uncle J.W.,
Aunt Lilly Neal and Ethe-
lene's new baby. At the bot-
tom of the letter, Laird's
mother had attached a tiny
flower and had written "A
flower from home." Part of
the flower still survives 64
years later.
Another letter from home
contailled news of the fam-
ily's success with their sug-
ar cane.crop, news of cousin
Tom King and his plans to
go squirrel hunting, and the
good price they all got on
their peanut crop. A neigh-
bor, Mrs. Stevenson also
sent a few lines in the letter,
promising they would "allbe
at the depot to greet you.
This story has.Ohappier
endingthansome.Pfe.Laird
survived his internment
at. Stalag 3-B and arrived
home by train. On the day of
his release, Laird weighed
only 76 pounds. Yet, he was
never seen by a doctor, just
sent home, one of only two
survivors from his original


company.
Though he did recover

fiscal year 2007-2008 totaled
$197,099.17- more than
a 17,000 percent increase
from 2005 when I took of-
fice."
Additionally, the .Walton
County Tax Collector's Of-
fice has one of the highest
tax collection rates in the
state. By October 2008, the
office collected 99.72 per-
cent of the tax roll for 2007
taxes. Throughout the state,
collection rates of 80 percent
to low 90 percent are viewed
as commendable. Skipper
said this high collection rate
.
is s(gmficant, as it menus
more dollars going back to
the county to provide ser-
vices to the citizens.

THE BLUE STAR MEMORIAL MARKER, located at the intersection of U.S. 90 and U.S. 331, is intended to honor all
the armed forces. The site is maintained as a civic project by the DeFudah Springs Garden Club and especially by member
Vivian Slote. The area around the marker includes red roses, blue plumbagos and China lilies. The Blue Star memorial
marker program originated in 1945 in New Jersey. Today there are hundreds of sites from coast to coast including Alaska
and Hawaii. Conceived as a living monument by the National Garden Club, the blue star was a symbol used during World
War II to identify homes where sons and daughters were serving in the Armed Forces. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)

The keynote speaker was
Lt. Col. Thomas Falzarano,

Falzarailo spoke briefly
about time he had spent in
Iraq. He related a story con-

reacted to seeing American
soldiers in uniform. One
of the small children came
up to him and said "Hey

Sure, those no-money-down
interest-only loans looked
nice through the bank's win-
dow, but no one was forced
to sign up. And those zero
financing financing offers
at the new car lot seemed
to justify spending $30,000
plus on a new car, but.it
didn't change the fact that
a more reasonably priced
used car could have served
one's driving needs.

the last few years. A combi-

Personal Financial Literacy,
more than 65 percent failed

only eight states across the
country require students to
pass a class in financial edu-

fromhighschool.
To help fill irr the finan-

up with Boys & Girls Clubs

13-18, the program aims to
promote financial literacy

Money Matters builds basic
money management skills
by offering fun, interactive

using .a checking account,
learning how to budget,
managing debt and saving

youth for the real world. In
the first year of the program,

By Joe WFaulk, '
Financial Advisor
Over the past few weeks,
the news has been almost
incomprehensible. It's hard
for many of us to make
sense of the failure of major
Wall Street firmsand large
banks and the $700 billion
bailout of the financial sec-
tor. And it's hard for inves-
tors to be calm when stocks
have fallen 30 percent from
their all-tnue jugh a year
ago. What can a person .do
to cope? Consider the follow-
ing "checklist" for surviving
a financial crisis.
t Close thedars)-dbutsop n
may hear some so-called
"experts" talking about end-
of-capitalism scenarios. Try
not to listen to these doom-
sayers. We still have the
most powerful economy in
th h tsory f thee world and

with closed ears, one should
keep their eyes wide open.
Specifically, look'for oppor-
tunities. Stock prices are
down now, but they won't
always be and, all else
being equal, investors who
buy into the stock market
at lower prices are likely to
e ebruyretu s
prices are higher.
Focus on things that can
be controlled. During a fi-
nancial crisis, success at
weathering the storm de-
pends on the ability to stay
calm and .concentrate on
the things that can be con-
troHedntF nAti n
so that they aren't panicked
Intommac nun8wi e, hof
ting money under the mat-'
tress. To a certain extent,
a person can even control
their portfolio's ability to
withstand volatility. How?
By diversifying their hold-
ings as broadly as possible.
The wider the range of in-
vestments, the less one can
be hurt by downturns that
primarily affect one asset
class. Keep in mind that di-
versification, by itself, can-
not guarantee profits or pro-
tect against loss.
Review and rebalance the
portfolio. During this mar-
ket decline, some holdings
have probably fallen more
than others. As a result, one
may now own a lower per-
centage of a specific asset
class than originally intend-
ed when the portfolio was
built. Consequently, one
maywanttomeetwiththeir
financial advisor to deter-
mine whether they should
rebalance the portfolio b
adding more money to thos


asset classes that have fall-
en the most. One may also
want to rebalance if the risk
tolerance or long-term goals
have changed.
Look ,for quality invest-
ments. In this economic en-
vironment, it's more impor-
tant than ever to focus on
quality investments. When
buying stocks, look for those
companies with strong bal-
ance sheets. If purchasing
bonds. stick with those that
receive high credit ratings.

construction, FGT will need an additional 50-75 feet.of workspace next to the
permanent right-of-way. FGT may also need temporary workplace in certain
areas, such as road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate particular con-
struct'ion activities. Property owners are entitled by law to receive compensation
for having a pipeline on their property. FGT will negotiate with the property
owners to receive approvals with a signed easement for needed property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights with
landowners whose property the pipeline construction impacts, such easement
rights may be determined in accordance with the eminent domain laws of the
state in which your property is located.

. FLORIDA &AS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES PIPELINE MPANS/ON TO
51/PPL Y FLORIDA'S CLEAN ENERGY NEEDS

7he Filing October31st

On October 31, 2008, Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT)
filed an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct an expansion
of its existing interstate pipeline system. The project has been designated the
Phase VIII Expansion Project and has been assigned Docket No. CPO9-17-000
at the FERC.

Florida Gas Transmission your clean energy partner

FGT is Florida's,1eader in providing clean energy solutions, safely and
reliably. FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland,
Florida and HoustonTexas and employees at field offices along our pipeline
system. PGT operates a 4,90(i-mile pipeline system that runs from South Texas
to Homestead, Florida. FGT has been supplying the inajority of Florida's
natural gas needs for almost 50 years through an extensive network of .
undergroundpipelinesi.

Phase V///EApansion ProjM-itrseque andpmpose
*
are PhaseVIIIExpansion Project refers to Florida GasTransmission's
proposal to construct eleven pipeline loops, three new pipeline segments, add
compression at eight existing compressor stations, construct one new compressor
station, three new meter.stations, two meter station upgrades, and associated aux-
iliary facilities. FGT proposes to construct 357.3 miles of 24-inch, 36-inch
and 42-inch diameter mainline loops, approximately 89.8 miles of 30-inch new -
mainline and approximately 36.1 miles of 20-inch and 24-inch diameter new
lateral pipelines. The projecealso includes the acquisition from Florida Power
& Light of approximately 22.7 miles of an existing 20-inch lateral connecting
FGT's mainline. Compression horsepower additions totaling 213,600 will be
constructed as part of the project. FGT is requesting authorization from the
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to operate certain
segments of its existing pipeline system in addition to portions of the proposed
pipeline expansion at greater pressures than currently authorized. This authoriza-
tion would eliminate the need to construct an additional 80.5 miles of 36-inch
mainline loops. The proposed in service date for the project is April l, 2011, with
the exception.of one new lateral segment in which it has been requested to be
completed by July 1.2010.
The purpose of the Phase VIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed
natural gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.

that left him speechless.'
"The horn was so loud
and I was so happy words
would. not come out of my
mouth," said Griggs. "I was
extremely thrilled with the
experience." -
Seeing trains has also
helped Griggs weather
tough times. Shortly after
a death in his.family,.he
was able to find inspiration
along the railroad tracks.
"Not long after.my uncle
died we were stopped at a
railroad crossing. That day
I saw two engines I had ney-
er seen before," He said. "I
took this as a sign from my
uncle to never give up on my
dreams."
One of the many ways


Griggskeepshis dream alive
is to photograph passing en-
gines and freight cars. He
recently bought a new cam-
era with money his parents
gave him for having perfect
attendance throughout his
entire 13-year academic ex-
perience. He estimates that
he has taken in excess of
1,000photographstodate.
. Griggs also hopes to keep
his dreams alive by working
on the railroad.-Since grad-
uating from Ponce De Leon
High School he has applied
for a position with CSX.
"From what I understand
CSX is an outstanding orga-
nization," he said. "CSX is a
company I would be proud
to be involved with."

Mariy' people have a hob-
by, interest or extracurricu-
lar activity they enjoy to fill
their free time. A fortunate
few are able to combine this
interest with their vocation,
Ponce De Leon resident C.
J. Griggs aspires to be the
latter.
"I am 18 years old and
have loved trains for 17
years," Griggs said with a
smile. "It would be a dream
come true to work for the
railroad. I would like to help
move the country 'forward
just as the railroad moves
freight."
Griggs cites several in-
cidents in his youth that
inspired him to love trains


and the railroad industry in
general. As a young school-
boy he and his classmates
took a field trip to see an old
engine at the Junior Muse-
um in Bay County. Another
time he was riding down
the road with his mother
and cousin Marti when she
spotted an engine parked
attheoldwoqd-yardinAr-
gyle. Knowing hpw he loved
trains, his mother stopped
:and asked the engineer if
the children could take a
look around. Mitch to their
delight the engineer allowed
them to see inside the en-
gine and watch him do some
light maintenance. Griggs
was also allowed to blow the
train's horn, an experience

As Veterans Day has
jxist passed, this is a per-
fect time to remind area
military veterans, and
their dependents that the
Walton County Veterans
Service Office (CVSO} is
ready to assist them apply
for and receive benefits for
which they may qualify.
Walton County, and the
Florida Panhandle in gen-
eral, has a large number
of resident veterans repre-
senting each branch of the
service. It is believed that
nearly 6,500 veterans live
in Walton County alone.
The Veterans Administra-
tion estimates the gross
annual revenue brought
into the county's economy
by veteran benefits to be
$17 million. This figure
does not include revenue
from the pensions received
by military retirees living
in Walton County.


"Our only at the CVSO is to assist
veterans and their depen-
dents," said CVSO Offi-
cer and Air Force veteran
Phil McMillian. "Anything
they need we assist them,
that includes filing claims
through the United States
Department of Veteran Af-
fairs and following up on
those claims."
The goals and objectives
of the CVSO are straight-
forward. They assist all
former and present mem-
bers of the Armed Forces
and their dependents who
reside in the area in pre-
paring claims for and se-
curing such compensation,
hospitalization, vocational
training and other benefits
or privileges to which they
may be entitled under fed-
eral or state regulation by
reason of their service in
the Armed Forces of the
United States. They assist
area veterans in obtaining


VA medical benefits and
treatment from nearby
Veterans Administration
facilitiestoincludearrang-
ing their transportation.
They also assist veterans
in remaining abreast of
rapidly changing veterans
benefits and entitlements
to provide the most effec-
tive service to eligible area
veterans.
"The biggest problem we
have is getting veterans
involved in the process of
asking questions," said As-
sistant CVSO Officer Ray-
mond Gainey. "Many times
the veterans are intimidat-
ed by the process. We are
here to help them navigate
the system. Any veteran in
the area can come and see
us with their needs."

The CVSO is located at
312 College Ave. Unit A, in
DeFuniak Springs. They
can be reached by calling
(850) 892-8140.

ter children. One-hundred
percent of the money raised
purchases Ghristmas pres-
ents foi foski kids- in, the
District I aiea, from Escam-
bia to Walton County.
Lizzy's Gift foundation
was founded in 2006. Prior
to Christmas that year, then
10-year-old Lizzy asked her
parents to use the money
they would spend on Christ-
mas presents for her to pur-
chase presents for local fos-
ter children. Lizzy became
familiar with the hardships
of foster kids, especially at
Christmas, when her moth-


er was working at a girl's
group home.
OutofLizzy'sactofuncon-
ditional love and kindness
came Lizzy's Gift Founda-
tion. In 2006, from a handful
of friends, was raised about
$600 for gifts, and in 2007,
including the First Annual
Chili Challenge, over $1,500
was ,:raised to purchase
Christmas ts for local fos-
ter kids. This year's Chili
Challenge is bigger and bet-
ter than ever,
Sponsors are asking a
$35 fee to enter, but the
prizes are great, including
the grand prize of a large
trophy and a weekend at the
beach in Destin. Also, there
will be a silent auction with
many great items to bid on,
including a weekend get-
away.


Lizzy's Gift Foundation
wants the public to come
and taste the best chili iix
town cooked by local friends
and dignitaries. The reign-
ing Chili Challenge cham-
pion is the Clerk of Courts
Office, Martha Ingle's team.
Sponsors hope to have back
other past contestants such
as the Walton County Prop-
erty Appraiser's office, Pat-
rick Pilcher's team, WZEP
and Art Dees' team, Wal-
ton County Tax Collectors,
Rhonda Skipper's team, and
many new challengers. The
chili will be judged by a pro-
fessional chef and chili viill
be sold by the bowl, or for
a little extra, one can taste
them all.
Lizzy's Gift Foundation's
second annual Chili Chal-
lenge will, again, be held

Library Bookls) of the week


mileage will differ, but I
* couldn't put this one back
in the bag soon enough. Ah,
the beauty of the library
system.
The book I am currently
re-reading for the next
outing of the Freeport
Bookies is ."The Beans of
Egypt, Maine by Carolyn
Chute. I first read this book
more than 15 years ago, so
reading it again, was
reading it anew. I've
changed in 15 years, but
the power of the imagery in
this book is still hard
hitting.


It concerns a large
extended hardscrabble
family called the Beans and
the observations of a girl
who lives across the road
from this train wreck of a
family and whose father
has forbidden her from
crossing the road.
The novel is quirky and
very well-written. It is not
a large book and you still
have time to get the book
from the library and read it
in time for the next
meeting of the Freeport
Bookies at 6 p.m. on Nov.
20.


ByLEAHSTRATMANN
A real mixed bag this
time out with most of the
authors being new to me.
First up is "Over Her Dead
Body," a bit of fluff by Kate
White. In real life, White is
the editor in chief of
"Cosmopolitan" .magazine,
but apparently has a series
featuring Bailey Weggins,
crime reporter,
I enjoyed this book on
tape and I probably
wouldn't have stuck with it
if I had been holding it in
my hand. Not because the
story 'is bad, but because it


moves with glacial
slowness. The story is about
the -heroine who bags a
freelancing job with a
gossip magazine called
Buzz. Buzz is a bit on the
sleazy side and is ruled by a
thoroughly nasty editor
named Mona who looks for
the dirt on the stars while
publicly chewing out her
writers. On top of that, she
is a wall-eyed aging woman
trying to hold onto her
youth. Her strength lies in
resurrecting failing
magazines and she is the
million-dollar woman at the


helm of Buzz, but pretty
much loathed by all, even
the publisher.
- While doing a favor for a
friend, Bailey stumbles on
the editor's body and is
caught up in the murder,
which she is later assigned
to cover for the magazine
while another reporter
covers the life of the editor
for the same edition. As I
said, the storyisn't bad and
includes a lot of tasty bon
mots and digging at the
business of celebrity, but it
may be best heard, rather
than read.

by Kingsley Amis as the
funniest book he ever read.
I'm a big fan of funny and
was able to find the book, in
large print only, at the
Coastal Branch Library.
Perhaps I am too stupid
to get British humor, but in
the.50 or so pages I waded
through, I was not amused.
The story takes place
largely on the campus of

The British soldiers trained

As the firing slowed, the

the remaining troops and
led the retreat to safety.
That evening, as the last
of the wounded were being
cared for, the officer noticed
an odd tear in his coat. It
was a bullet hole! He rolled

The battle on the Monon-

officer went on to become the

Fifteen years lift ni
1770, George Washington
returned to the same Penn-

Indian chief, having heard
that Washington was in the
area, traveled a long way to
meet with him. -
He sat down with Wash-

a council fire, the chief told
Washington the following;


"I am a chief and ruler over

prophecy:
"Listen! The Great Spir-

impressive 31-0 shutout at

Walton built a 17-0 lead at

Northview offense. David

Cody Adams and Howard

game by taking a 1-yard
loss to run out the clock and
claim the win. South Wal-
ton's offense held the ball
for 9:11 and ran 18 plays
while Baker had the ball for
only five plays and 2:49 of
the quarter.
Baker advanced to play
South Walton in the second
quarter of the shootout af-
ter edging Vernon 6-0. The
Gators got an 8-yard touch-
down run from quarterback
Cameron Domangue to take
the lead on their first pos-
session after Vernon failed
to pick up a first down at
the Baker 48-yard line on a
fourth down attempt. Ver-


non helped the Gators out
with two costly unsports-
manlike conduct penalties
on their touchdown drive.
Baker stopped Vernon on
downs on their next posses-
sion and ran out the clock to
set up the showdown with
the host Seahawks.
Vernon was eliminated
from playoff contention with
the South Walton win over
Baker, while the Gators face
the unenviable task of tray-
eling to Florida High for an
opening round playoff game
on November 21. Florida
High is 9-1 with the lone
loss coming to Marianna on
the road 26-19 in a game

David Bazylak returned

South Walton 48, giving the
Seahawk offense good field
position to start a drive. liry-

the ball down to the Baker
8-yard line in six plays,
then watched Cody Adams
scamper in from eight yards
out to give South Walton
the only points they would
need. Bazylak'p extra point
clanged off the left upright
to keep the Seahawks from
a ?-point lead.
Baker's Marcus Jones
took the first play .from
scrimmage after the Sed-


hawks score 54 yards to the
South Walton 25-yard line
only to be kept from scor-
ing a touchdown by D.J.
Striedal's swipe of his legs
in a last-gasp effort to tackle
the runner. Strie'dal's tackle
paid big dividends as Jones
fumbled the handoff from
Domangue on the next play
and the Seahawks Tyler
Brielmayer fell on it at the
26-yard line.

able to block the ball at the
net for a 16-15 lead. Stew-
art then took the. ball to
serve and delivered a shot
that was hit into the Walton
crowd to give the Braves an
unlikely come from behind
win.
When asked if the win
was the best of her career,-
Betsy Stevenson respond-
ed, "Oh yes! We get to keep
playing!"
Stevenson had 15 kills
and 18 assists while. Caiti
Stewart added seven aces
and nine kills while provid-
ing a solid serve in helping
to win the third set. Delaney
Bell had 12 kills and nine
digs while utilizing -a jump
serve that was difficult for
the Bulldogs to handle.


By PATRICK CASEY
Twenty-two years after
Solomon Campbell rumbled
63 yards for a touchdown
to keep the Walton football
team undefeated in 1986
on a Marianna fumble for
a miracle win, the Lady
Braves got their own ver-
sion in volleyball as they
rallied from a two-set defi-
cit to come back and take
an opening round Class 3A
state playoff match with a
five- set victory in the Mari-
anna gymnasium.

Walton (20-8) quickly fell
behind by losing the first
two sets 25-22 and 25-16
before rolling to a victory
in the third set 25-12. At
that point, trailing two sets


five match points that would
have ended the game.
Walton will travel to Pen-
sacola Catholic (17-7) for a
second rotind playoff game
on Tuesday, .November 11
(details were not available
at press time). The Crusad-
ers have defeated Walton at
home twice this season with
the lone loss coming in De-
Funiak on October 16. The
Crusaders, who feature a
much younger squad than
Walton, will try to earn a
berth into Saturday's Re-
gion final. The winner of
the match will likely have
to travel to Jacksonville for
a date with either Episcopal
or Bolles High School for a
berth into the Final Four in
Lakeland.


at 23-23, Marianna had five
chances to, put the Braves
away as the score crawled
all the way to 29-29. Walton
took a 30-29 lead with Alex
Infinger finally earning the
final point as her serve was
played until Marianna hit it
into the net to give Walton a
31-29 set victory.

Walton took the momen-
tum to the fifth set and built
a 14-111ead only to see Mar-
ianna rally for a 14-14 tie.
Walton wasted four chances
to put the Bulldogs away,
including a 15-14 lead that
saw Walton serve the ball
into the net to tie the match
at 15-15. Marianna's next
serve was returned until
Walton's Caiti Stewart was


Devin Richardson and Alex
Infinger provided several
key serves and helped to
settle Walton down in the
fourth set with hustling re-
turns that kept the ball in
play.
"Total team win," Walton
coach Marla Harrell said af-
ter the hair-raising match.
"One of the best I have ever
been apart of."
Marianna (19-8) was
coming off their first district
title in volleyball it many
years aird had the Braves
number early as their took
the first two sets. However,
the Bulldogs saw the match
turn when they could not fin-
ish Walton off in the foixrth
set as the Braves fought off


to one with elimination on
hand, the match turned into
a classic that neither team
will forget for several years.
Marianna held a lead in
the fourth set most of the
way. The Bulldogs, who had
five seniors on their squad
as compared to the Braves
"Senior Seven," kept at-
tacking Walton from the
far corner near the net as
they set point after point for
their spike attack. The tac-,
tic was effective for most of
the match, but the Bulldogs',
legs and luck wore thin in
the final two sets. Walton
hung in the heavyweight
match by moving the vol-
leyball around and getting
several service points to
fight off the Bulldogs. Tied


IT'S NEVER A GOOD SIGN to see the volleyball behind
the ferst line of defense. Though the Braves struggled in the
first two sets, they rallied to win the last three to move to the
second round of the Class 3A volleyball playoffs.

The Marianna Bulldogs
rallied from a 21-14 half-
time deficit and dominated
the second half of play by
keeping the football away
from the Walton Braves to
grab a 34-21 district win.
Walton looked poised to
earn their first state play-
off berth since 2005 as the
Braves built a 21-14 lead
behind two big plays for
touchdowns and a long scor-
ing drive in the first half of
play. Walton, playing with-
out leading rusher Issac
Jackson in the first half due
to an injury; got a 73-yard
touchdown run by freshman
Tray Williams followed by
a 65-yard touchdown pass
from Tarrell Ilramlet to
Deron Hogans, to build a
14-7 lead.
Walton's defensive prob-
lems continued as the Bull-
dogs matched the Braves
first two scores to tie the
game at 14-14 behind their
vaunted running attack.
Bradley Battles raced 26


yards for Marianna's .first
score and RJ. Bowers
capped a drive with a 1-yard
plunge to tie the game in a
wild first quarter of play.
Walton put together a 10-
play, 81-yard drive that cul-
minated in Deron Hogans
7-yard run for a 21-14 half-
.time lead. Walton seemed
to capture the momentum
after that drive, combined
with an injury to Marian-
na's star tailback Battles in
the second quarter, who did
not return to play in the sec-
ond half.

Walton got a boost to
start the second half as Issac
Jackson returned to the line-
up to start the third quarter
and carried the ball the first
five plays, gaining 18 yards.
Unfortunately, Jackson had
the ball stripped at the Wal-
ton 37-yard line .and Mari-
anna pounced on the foot-
ball, setting up a 2-yard run
by Fidel Montgomery to tie
the game at 21-21.
- Marianna forced a Wal-


ton punt, but got poor field
position from the event, as
they started their next pos-
session -at their own 2-yard
line. The Bulldogs then pro-
ceeded to ground up nearly
11 minutes of the clock in
driving 98 yards in 20 plays
a to take the lead on a 1-yard
plunge by R.J. Bowers. The
Bulldogs converted a critical
fourth down play for a first
down at the Braves 1-yard
line to keep the drive going.
As if things hadn't gone
bad enough in the second
half, the ensuing kickoff put
an end to a Walton come-
back. The Braves muffed
the pooch kick and Mari-
anna recovered the football
at the Walton 37-yard line.
The Braves defense stopped
the Bulldogs at the Walton
25-yard line, until Marianna
completed their only pass of
the game to Montgomery for
a 25-yard touchdown and a
34-21 lead.
Walton got the ball back
on the next possession, but
could not make a first down


WALTON FRESHMAN TRAY WILLIAMS got. loose/or a 73-yard touchdown run to put

The Soixth Walton Tour-
ist Development Council's
"big blue" signs now in ster-
age are seen by some as a
solution to reported prob-
lems with Walton County's,
community directory sign
program on U.S. 98.
"We thought it was a re-
ally good idea,", said Pat
Blackshear, county director.
of planning and develop-
ment serviceswhen the ro-
posal was aired on Nov. 5 at
a workshop of Walton Coun-
ty's Scenic Corridor Design
Review Board (DRB),
Blackshear explained
that businesses located .on
roads intersecting with U.S.
98 had been complaining to
county commissioners that'
the black-and-white com-
munity directory signs how
in use were not adequate in
helping motorists attempt-
Ibnheto find the r bu stsoer
sign program has been in
use on U.S. 98 for over a de-
cade.
Businesses are allowed
and encouraged to place
signs conforming with the
county's sign standards
on their own property, brit
the U.S. 98 Scenic Cor-
ridor Standards prohibit
businesses from putting up
"off-premises" signs, signs
located on ,other property.
Community directory sigris,
located within the county
road right-of-way, are an ex-
ception to that rule.
In 1997, soon after Wal-
ton County Code Enforce-
ment cracked down on off-


premises signs along U.S.
98, the copununity directory
sign program was estab-
lished. Businesses and oth-
er entititea located on coun-
ty roads intersecting with
U.S. 98 were allowed to put
up black-and-white signs,
typically with the name of
one business, subdivision,
or other entity displayed on
each panel of these conibi-
nation signs. Construction
and maintenance of the
signs was the responsibil-
ity of the businesseslentities
displayed on each signs.
Poor maintenance has
been one complaint from
the giublic about community
directory signs. According
to Walton County Senior
Planner Tim Brown, other
complaints oil.the part of
businesses have beeri that

"We'vejustgotcomplaints
of 'people don't know we're

reported.
In early 2008, the South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council had put up
several kinds of signs in
connection with a $260,000,
49-sign wayfinding signage
project. Several months
later the organization found
itself under strong pressure
to remove these viayfinding
signs, which were criticized
as "too tall" and "too blue" in

Walton County and a sec-
tion that will connect SR-79
with SR-77 in Bay County.
Barfield said DOT is con-
sidering making this, a lim-
ited access roadway.
Commissioner Pridgen
called the road project a
very .important issue" for
all parts of Walton County.
His expectation was that
the project would comple-
ment and relieve congestion
on U.S. 331, currently the
county's only north-south
route to and from the coastal
area. Pridgen also saw the
79 Connector a stimulus for
Walton County's economy.
"This is an important
thing to start our commu-
nity growing," he said.
Anders pointed out that
the connector road will
provide another option for
evacuation and should save
10 to 15 minutes in travel
time on the trip between
Walton County and the new
airport.
McE1heney said the
NWFTCA has "got the mes-
sage" from Walton County
that focus on getting U.S.
331 four-laned in its en-
tirety must continue. He did
not think attention on the
79 Connector Road would
detract from that. "I think
they will complement each
other," he said.
He noted that making
the connector road a toll

In the second special
meeting of the Walton Coun-
ty Planning Commission.to
discuss the Evaluation and
Appraisal Report (EAR), the
members of the planning
department, the public and
the commissioners are down
to cherry-picking the lan-
guage in the future land use
categories.
Tim Pauls questioned
why he would be unable to
build a 50-foot home on land .
designated as general ag- .
agriculture in the north part
of the county. Planning di-
rector Pat Blackshear ex-
plained that in a series of
public meetings, "we heard
pretty consistently people
wanted to see height lim-
its. We don't see a need
for anything higher than
40-feet for a single-family
structure. The staff doesn't
feel strongly about this, we
are simply using 40-feet be-
cause of what we heard frotti
the public. The bottom line
is we need a number there,"
she said.
Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell noted that right now
there is a moratorium on
50-foot limits and the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) will
hold a final hearing on that
ordinance on Nov. 10.
In response to Blacks-
hear's comment about need-
ing a number, David Kram-
er said, "That doesn't make
sense. Why would not hav-
ing height limit put us in a
bad position?"
Blackshear told Kramer,
"If you do the research, you
will find height limits in
zoning categories and we
are presenting to the board
what we gained in commu-
nity meetings, but we have
to have a height hmit it all
categories."
Commissioner Sally Mer-
rifield reiterated her com-
ments from the last meeting
about fire safety. "When you
are talking general agricul-
ture, you are not talking
about land where public wa-
ter is available for firefight-
ers. You have to consider
safety," she said.
Commissioner Hugh
Marse commented that his
community in Point Wash-
ington has organized and
determined a height limit of
32-feet.
In an effort to try and
move along, Commis-
sioner Terrell reminded the


which were just the tweak-
ing of language and which
did not immediately seem of
any concern to county plan-
ners.
Citizen Mike Taylor said,
"My land use would change
dramatically-under the pro-
posed changes. In 1998 we
were told we were a non-
conforming use of property.
This property cannot be
used for residential and has
been non-conforming for
13 years. I had an offer on
the property that was with-
drawn because of the non-
conforming nature of the
zoning. This causes a hard-
ship to me," he said,
Commissioner Terrell
said, "Today we are not do-
ing individual .properties,
justcategories.Iunderstand
the nature of your problem,
as do the other commission-
ers." -
Kramer noted that the
way the CMU designation
is written, unless the land
in question is on U.S. 431 or
U.S. 98, the land is reduced
in values by two-thirds.
"This is a further reduc-
tion of property values and
rights," he said.
Citizen Frank Green
said, "An issue I have as
an architect and a planner
is that we don't have a good
conceptual framework for
defining these CMU centers.
If we have a good definition
for the center and how it is
constituted, and then come
back down to the individual
properties,, it works better
for the prollerty owners and
we get the kind of develop-
ment we want."
Commissioner Patton re-
sponded saying, "CMU has
a purpose and a good pur-
pose, but.maybe we should
go back ,and really have a
commercial category. We
are never going to get a
Rosemary Beach or Grand
Boulevard because much of
U.S. 98 land lacks the depth
needed. I think a commer-
cial category starts to solve
the problem. It became the
consensus of the commis-
sioners to create afull com-
mercial category for U.S. 98
within south Walton."

proposed changes, vis-

public that the document
that leaves the planning
commissioner and goes to
the BCC is just a recommen-
dation. "If something leaves
here that you are not happy
about, remember the BCC is
the final authority and then
.it goes to the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA)
in Tallahassee.
The commissioners then
voted unanimously to leave
the height limit at 40 feet.
There was some discus-
sion about the size restric-
tion on land zoned as rural
village; which carried with
it a 10,000 square-foot re-
striction on a commercial
.entity.
Kramer said, "I. don't
think the 10,000 square-foot
limit is necessary. I don't
think we are threatened by
a big box popping up in Pax-
ton or Bruce: This square
footage is not feasiHIe for a
lot of applications.. Suggest
the square-foot limitation
be removed. This has gov-
ernment putting limits on
the private sector."
Terrell responded saying,
"We have to have some reg-
ulations and it isn't Walton
County imposing them, it is
often Tallahassee."
Commissioner Tom Pat-
ton commented, "If some-
Imay doesn't know where
their land stands now, a few
years down the road they
may want to change it and
find they would have to wm
the small scalb amendment
lottery to change their prop-
erty if they get categorized
incorrectly. That process
could take years. DCA is
not making us do the 10,000
square-feet limitation, we
.decided that."
AlthoughtheEARamend-
ments;, are, supposed to be
'finished and in the hands of
the DCA by early February,
nobody expects the deadline
to be met. Commissioner
Terrell noted, "We are not
going to rush this thing."
One of the areas af-
fected by the amendments
is the category of Village
Mixed Use (VMU). With the
amendments this category
would be eliminated in favor
of a designation of Coastal
Mixed Use (CMU).

and Wendy. Gray, at plan-
ner hired by Alys Beach,

es they would like to see in

funding that project.
"Getting the road- built
is probably going to require
tolls," Barfield. agreed.
The design phase of the
79 Connector Road, which
will precede construction,
is expected to cost another
$7.2 million.
Barfield said construction
costs won't be known until
the exact alignment of the
road is determined in the
PD&E study. He. said that
DOTusuallyspendsbetween
$500,000 and $600,000 a
mile for road construction.


McE1heney said it ia not
known :at this point where
the connector road will join
with U.S. 98. According to
Barfield, the road will con-
nect four-to-six miles west
of othe Bay-Walton County
line.
Barfield said the 79 Con-
nector Road project is alatep
ahead from many others he-
cause right-of-way for the
project has already been ac-
quired. It was part of a $45
million, purchase by DOT
from the St. Joe Company
in 2006.
Moliterno asked the pan-


el niembers what the com-
munity could do to help get
the road in place before the
opening of the new airport.
Anders encouraged coun-
ty officials and community
leaders to "get belund" the
project. Pridgen suggested
contacting elected officials
and asking for their assis-
tance. McE1heney urged
proponents of the project
to attend meetings of the
NWFTCA to voice their sup-
port.

SHOOTING THE BREEZE


with Leah Stratinann

think we will again. It will
take the best efforts of all of
us.
For a long time, I've sus-
pected Ima little manic.
My obsession since moving
to the country has been the
acquisition of one of those
large wheeled garbage cans
with the attached lids.
While living in incorporated
communities, I was always
supplied with one of those
babies. They are so big I
only generated enough trash
to take it to the curb about
every two weeks. However,
now that Em in the country
and really need a big, hard-
to-push-over garbage con-
tainer, I can't get one.
I called- the city of De-
Funiak Springs and asked if
I could buy one. "Nope. We
don't do that," somq young
woman told me. No reason,
just no.
' For weeks I've been eye-
ing the two-TWO-bright
shinir cans sitting beside
Regions Bank in DeFuniak
Springs. I asked myself why
they needed two. Mice clean
trash from the bank, mostly
paper and such. I've cased
the joint, looking for camer-
as on that side of the build-
ing and haven't seen any.
Of course now that I'm tell-
ing everybody, it would be a


There are so many
thoughts careening around
my head and jockeying for
position on center stage, I
simply have to unload a few
of them here.
First, I'm very proud to be
an American who was one
of the record-setting num-
bers of people who went to
the polls last week. For the
first time in several presi-
dential elections, the voters
did not have to hold ,their
noses when voting for the
candidate who was the least
objectionable, which is what
led to the record numbers I
think. Both men clearly love
America and either choice
was one who would not con-
tinue to embarrass us as a
nation.
As a person who has seen
segregation and the strug-
gle for civil rights, I'm proud
that all Americans came
together to make history
when electing a minority to
the highest post in the land.
No siixgle ethnic group did
it alone. We did it together
and it is my hope we will
stay "together to help this
man get this country back
on the winning track. As our
new president said, it won't
C be easy, but Americans have
a good history of stepping
up to meet challenges and I


stupid thief indeed to take
one of them but still, why do
they have two when I can't
buy one?
Those of us in the country
need them the most. Besides,
we pay the same extra one
cent in tax as everyone else
for trash pickup and if some
get supplied a receptacle for
trash, everyone should get
one. Country dwellers have
marauding animals knock-
ing over the trash and strew-
ing it around. Those big
green cans are much harder
for raccoons and what not to
tackle. I demand to know,
who makes these decisions?
I find myself looking lustful-
ly at these cans, especially
those still by the side of the
road many days after trash
pickup, inviting my criminal
tendencies. I will continue
to try to acquire one legally,-
but I'm steamed at the.ineq-
xtity of it all.
. Not long ago, the Rev.,
Billy Graham was briefly
hospitalized after tripping
over his dog. Those of us
with dogs completely under-
stand this situation.

path and often does. He's

ticipating in the sign pro-
gram to fund maintenance
of the signs.
Apparently no represen-
tatives of the businesses
who reportedly had been
complaining about the com-
munity directory sign pro-
gram were in attendance at
the Nov. 5 workshop. The
only comment from attend-
ees was provided by Mary
Nielsen, who was against
the community directory
sign program in general,
and Maria Sassano, who
said she did not want any
of the signs rejected for CR--
30A placed on Scenic Gulf
Drive. Sassano said that as
a Scenic Gulf Drive resident
she would find that "very of-
fensive." --
.:DRB ipembers responded
that this proposal is for U.S.
98, not Scenic Gulf Drive.
Nielsen called the black-
and-white community direc-
tory sign near her home on
CR-393 "an ugly thing to
look at." -
She found the repainted
bronze sign "more aestheti-
cally pleasing," but ques-
tioned whether the county
should be "in the advertis-
ing business" for businesses.
Nielsen added that in her
opinion, with today's tools of
the phone book, the Internet
and GPS, there is no legiti-
mate reason why a business
cannot be located simply
with a sign in place in front
of it.
"I think the government
should get out of private
enterprise," Nielsen sum-
marized. "I think everyone
in this day and age can find
what they're looking for."
"I tend to agree with
Ms. Nielsen," responded
DRB member Bob Johnson,
"Do we want to keep them
there?" he asked regarding
the community directory
signs,."I'd almost like to toss
that back to the board of
county commissioners."
DRB member Tim Norris
pointed out that not all driv-
ers have GPS.
DRB member Sue Grill
wondered who would coordi-
nate placement of the signs
arid maintain them. "There's
a lot of money involved," she
said.
Blackshear suggested
that the money question be
posed to the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC), along with
a recommendation by the
DRB that the proposed re-
placement signs would be
preferable to the current
community directory signs.
Johnson then proposed a
motion that the retro-fitted
TDC signs "would be a satis-
factory replacement" for the
current community direc-
tory signs. That motion was
approved 5-0 by all DRB
members in attendance.
Blackshear stated her in-
tent to bring the issue before
the BCC at a future meeting
for consideration.


color. Plans were announced
to shorten some of the taller
signs, and, ultimately, there
was a decision to bow to
public opinion and remove a
portion of the signs, the ones
identifying various beach
communities on CR-30A.
Still in place from that sig-
nage project, at least for the
time being, are "gateway"
signs at entrance points to
the county and directional
signs pointing the way to
various beach communities.
The community identifi-
cation signs have remained
in storage since being re-
moved in spring 2008. When
complaints about the com-
munity directory- sign pro-
gram on U.S.,98 surfaced a
couple 4f mopthsago,.,DRB
zilebilief Wilk.,N/5rris sug-
gested the unused commit-
nity identification signs as
a solution.. Norris serves on
the TDC as well,
The Nov. 5 DRB work-
shop had then been set up
to look at the possible retro-
fitting and use of the, blue
community identification
signs and other solutions
to the-complaints about the
community directory sign
program. '
A surprise to most people
at the workshop was the
presence of one the former
blue community identifi-
cation signs that had un-
dergone a makeover. DRB
chairmanPaulSmith, owner
of Smith Signs, had changed
the color ofthe former blue
sign to bronze, the same col-
or commonly used for traffic
signal mast arms and other
roadway items. The sign
also featured reflective me-
tallic lettering on one of the
panels.
There had been previous
statements by the TDC that
the color of the signs could
not be changed. This was
apparently not the case,, but
according to Smith's com-
ments to the "Beach Breeze,"
changing the color took con-
siderable effort. He said the
work on the one sign was
an all-day job for his shop,
and that eight coats of paint
were required. Smith also
said the new paint should
wear well, subject to main-
tenanceonthesigns.
TDC Executive Director
Sonny Mares told the DRB
members that the TDC
would be "certainly inter-
ested" in providing signs to
be used as community di-
rectory signs. He said that
approximately 25 signs of
similar size would be avail-
able for this purpose. Mares
said it would be his recom-
mendation for the signs to
be donated by the TDC for
use as community directory
signs in order to save tax-
payers money.
"We are trying to be good
neighbors t help the beauti-
fication of cenic 98," Mares
commented.
He suggested "revenue
neutral charges" by the

By ROBINNEWTON
The South Walton Relay
for Life is holding a Charity
Art Auction on November
22, 2008 at the Hilton at the
Sandestin Beach and Golf
Resort and the honorary
chairman of the event, Todd
Sachs, will be the guest
speaker.
Sachs arid his wife, Col-
leen Coffield Sachs, have -
been named co-chairmen
for south Walton's Relay for
Life for 2009. If he had been
asked a year ago, chances
are he would still have co-
ch'aired the event. A year
ago, he was living his dream.
After meeting his soul mate
(Colleen) just four years be-
fore in Washington, D.C., an
event he describes as truly
"love at first sight," Sachs
moved to south Walton and
they soon married.
This part of the country
agreed with Sachs, although
the emerald seas and warm,
sun-filled days were not the
Only reasoil. He embraced
the community and it, in
turn, welcomed him, he said.
He was overwhelmed by the
sense of belonging arid gen-
uine interest shown by his
neighbors and new friends.
The dream was soon in-
terrupted when, after only
three and a half years of
marriage, Sachs received
news which would change
his life. He was diagnosed
with pancreatic cancer. As
he describes it, "this is the
nastiest kind of cancer you
can have." The statistics for
pancreatic cancer are fright-
ening: 20 percent survival
rate after 1 year, and just
4 percent after five years,
according to Herschberg
Foundation for Pancreatic
Research, 2008. There is no
good test to identify it and
usually when it is discov-
ered, it is too late for any-
thing other than advice to
"get your affairs in order."
Shortly after the diagnosis,
swift action was taken and
he and his wife soon found
themselves at the Johns
Hopkins Hospital in Bal-
timore, Maryland. Sachs
underwent surgery and che-
motherapy and continues
his treatment today. -
Colleen, as his wife, is
the perfect choice for co-
chairman. "My cancer is her
cancer," says Sachs. Whed
cancer strikes, it is not just
the patient who is involved.
Caregivers also live with the
diagnosis every day as they
go about their daily routine
and at the sartle time help


the patient deal with the
sometimes impossible ex-
ecution of routine tasks.
Sachs' message is clear,
"I didn't do anything wrong.
Cancer patients do not do
anything wrong. My cozil-
munity supports me. Ev-
eryone.is wishing.me well; I
am not in a position to turn
down a prayer." His heart
is blatantly transparent,
"My wife deserves a 50-year
marriage with someone who
loves her as much as I do.
Sachs has personally
dealt with cancer for seven
months now and in that
short time, he sees what
needs to be done. There
needs to be a system in place
to help people deal with
cancer. Whenever someone
receives the diagnosis, their
first thought is, "I am going
to die." The roller coaster
that follows can be over-
whelming.
"We do not understand
medical jargon. What doctor
does what? What will the in-
surancecompanycovet?"are
just some of the questions
asked, says Sachs, "Support
groups are needed for more
than the emotional.side of
the situation. Patients need
to know how to find the cor-
rect doctor, what is needed
to get to see that doctor and
how to coordinate medica-
tions so all doctors involved
know all medications being
administered. Churches
and communities need to
develop outreach programs
to teach, people how to han-
dle their care."
"I will be at all of the fund-
raising activities for Relay
for Life," says Sachs. "I am
the face of it. The reason I
am a survivor, is because of
my wife and the e-mails and
get-well cards. The actual
Relay will take place one
day after the one-year anni-
versary of my diagnosis."
November is Pancreatic
Cancer Awareness Month,
The art auction at the Hil-
ton is the perfect venue to
bring people out for such a
noble cause. Relay for Life
celebrates life, gitres hope
and remembers with love,
all those affected by cancer,
Many local artists have con-

The habit of saving early
for college with a plan .fi-
nancially guaranteed by the
state has caught on with
thousands of Florida fami-
lies over the past 20 years.
"We had the paperwork
all filled out before they even
came home," said Sarah
Henning, who enrolled her
twins Harper and Granger
right after they were born
last February. "We knew
that it was important to us
because we wanted them to
have the opportunities that
we did." .
A. 20th birthday celebra-
tion for the Florida Prepaid
College Plan will be held
on Monday, Nov. 17 to rec-
ognize the Florida families
that have saved ahead for
college. At the event, 20
candles on a birthday cake
will be blown out by chil-
dren who have Florida Pre-
paid College Plans. More
than 881,000 children have
been enrolled in the Florida
Prepaid College Plan since
1988.
Governor Charlie Crist
is scheduled to speak at
the Florida Prepaid College
Plan 20th Birthday celebra-
tion at Tallahassee Com-
munity College, which will


be kicked off at 1:30 p.m. by
the Florida A&M University
Marching 100 Band. Former
governor Bob Martinez will
be there accompanied by his
twin granddaughters Emily
and Lydia, for whom he pur-
chased the first two Florida
Prepaid College Plans in
1988 when they were two
years old.
Prepaid fainilies and the
public are invited to at-
tend the celebration, where
there will be fun activities
for kids. Children will get
a chance to tell a videogra-
pher what they want to be
when they grow up and to
pose for'pictures framed by
life-size cutouts represent-
ing professions like teacher,
doctor and astronaut.
"The Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan is an example of
government that works,"
Chairman Ted Hoepner of
the Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Board said. "No tax-
payers' dollars are used in
the Florida Prepaid College
Plan which lets families
save for college by prepay-
ing for tuition and other col-
lege costs. With $8 billion in
assets, the Florida Prepaid
College Plan is financially
strong and guaranteed by


the state."
The Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan is the largest,
most successful prepaid col-
lege plan in the nation. (Col-
lege Savings Plan Network,
Survey of States, June 30,
2006.)
One out of 10 Florida
children from newborns to
high school students has a
Prepaid College Plan.
More than 206,000 stu-
dents have used Florida Pre-
paid College Plan benefits in
college. About 18 percent of
students at the state's pub-
lic universities and commu-
nity colleges have Florida
Prepaid College Plans. The
plan's value, what would be
paid to a Florida public col-
lege, is transferable to out-
of-state and private schools.

segments, front page
headlines and.the talk for
everyone around the office
water cooler.
Many consider the
press, a once-unbiased and
hard-hitting reliable liews
source that pulled the
family together, to be
nothing more than a gossip
talk show with one-sided
views and its, own agenda-
driven liews stories fueled
by a select group of
investors and advertisers,
not the general public.
Americans have never
been able to honestly
accelit a celebrity's
endorsement of a candidate
and have always
considered Hollywood a
place to turn to when
getting tired of listening.to
politics. Even President
Ronald Reagan knew that
ifhe.was to win the White
House in 1980, he could not
biting "up the starlets he
once shared the silver
screen with back in the
day.
But for the press, the
story is different. Thd
nation relies on those
reporters, studios, net-
wprks, publishing houses
and other media outlets, to
give them straight talk,
unbiased reporting and a
balanced view of the world
and all that is taking place
in it.
If Americans were really
not concerned with gettil4g
"just the facts," they would
buy a Playboy magazine to
look at pictilres of Barbara
Walters and tune in to the
6 p.m. news to hear Pamela
Anderson give the latest
update on the fighting in
Iraq.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2008

- --- -


The election is over and
America 12as its first black
pres-ident. But with tl2e
push of the press and
Hollywood to get him into
the White House '
repercussions of the
mainstream media and
Glitter Town's obsession
have already begun to
backfire,

With the past week's
elections, it was, all about
the presidential race and
then ultimately the election
that made Barack Obama
the 44th President of the
United States. For some
media outlets and
celebrities around the
nation, the election has just
wrapped up, but now their
apologies are just
beginning.
In 36 national pollh that
were launched on
Wednesday of last week,
asking voters if the media
coverage of both candidates
was fare, the overall
response by 70 percent was
too much positive attention
for Obama and too much
negative for McCain. What
helped one candidate has
seemed to hurt the national
press and Hollywood.
CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN,
the L.A. Times and the
New York Times are seeing
a barrage of problems,
1 t d dr t
mpp n e ers, rea e
and advertisers since the
beginning of September.
Now they are scrambling to
regain the confidence .and
trust of a country, both
froni the Democratic and
Republican parties.
As far as Tinsel Tostrn is
concerned, the news had
already broken that studio
officials had warned Oprah
Winfrey. to lighten up on
her open, on-air support of
Obama, since her audience,
mostly women, were
getting agitated with her
constant downplay of
Hillary Clinton.
Another celebrity that
has felt the wrath of both
supporters and non-
supporters of Obama is
Madonna. The outspoken
ever-shocking, 50-some-
thing performer has been
having trouble filling
stadiums and arenas for
her "Sticky and Sweet"

concert tour that she is
currently taking around
the globe.
Since her images of
McCain being thrown on
the big screen beside Hitler
during one of her songs,
audiences became offended
- many said "disgusted" -
that she would be so
outspoken about the
political campaign. Last
Monday, after her concert
was a flop with ticket sales
and had a stage collapse
just hours before her L.A.
show,- many said it was
karma for the Material
Girl.
Once again, the press
raced to cover every move
and every statement she
and other Hollywood
heavy-hitters made about
the campaign and now they
are having to backtrack
even though Obama was
elected. The press has left a
very bad taste in the mputh
of millions of Americans
and Hollywood seems to
have left the country with
an aching pain in its
stomach,
Many have even said
thatjournalism died this
year, due to the coirerage of
the politicians and their
biased reporting. Others
have complained, written,
bogged and voiced their
opinions on how Hollywood
spent too much time
rooting for the Democratic
ticket and not enough time
on putting out anything
worth watching on
television, or worth buying
a ticket for at the theater,
For the most part, the
nation is excited about
having its first black
president and looking
forward to the new
direction that he and the
Democrats want to take the
nation. But many have an
all-time low respect for
both the media and
celebrities.


. Has the press gone from
being an unbiased group of
educated writers to those
who only write about
things or people that are
the "in-thing" right now?
Has Hollywood gotten what
it wanted and .is now
having to answer to the
rest of the country?
Not all American
journalists have been
considered left-winged or
liberal. Many have reported
the news in a fair and
balanced method and have
given both sides of the
story on both politicians.
Not all celebrities have
. voiced their opinions on the
campaigns for either party,
and have just sat back and
done the million-dollar job
they are paid to do.

With the decrease in
ticket sales for performers,
.concerts and theater, and
the drastic decline in
advertising sales for print
and television media,
coupled with tumbling
ratings, what is the next
step for both camps?
Just as the GOP must
collect its thgghts, its
campaign strategy and its
overall party qualifications,
so must the press and
Hollywood. Despite the
victory they are celebrating
now, what will their
answer be to mainstream,
rural America?
Hollywood will always
be Hollywood. Celebrity
actors and directors will
never apologize and never
admit to being too one-
sided. They believe that
their thoughts and beliefs
are believed by all and
their ideology is the reason
people follow their every
move. That and the fact
that we enjoy seeing them
make fools of themselves in
front of a camera crew from
TMZ.
But they are also seeing
