Small-scale


amendment


request is


contentious


SBy LEAH STRATMANN
Before Darrell. Barnhill
could begin to make his, case
for a small-scale amendment
to change .98, acres from ur-
ban residential to commer-
cial, consultant Jack Rhodes
was on his feet to object to
any discussion of the change
before the planning commis-
sion last week.
As agent for the owner
of the adjacent property
located on the east side
of SR 83, 580 feet north of
Walton Road, Rhodes said
the -amendment discussion
should not be held because
of outstanding code enforce-
ment violations. He asked
for the issue to be tabled
until the code enforcement
investigation was complete.
Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell asked county attorney
W.C. Henry if it was impru-
dent to address the issue if
the allegations were correct.
To date, no violations had
been filed by code enforce-
ment.
Planning director Pat


Blackshear said the plan-
ning department staff
couldn't support the request
for change. "I think you need
to hear his request and hear
our comments. I think we
can put it to bed tonight,"
she said.
"The board can either do
this or notat your discre-
tion.. You can hear argu-
ments and take action or
not," said Henry.
Terrell said, "I'm inclined
to let the applicant pro-
ceed."
"I ask you to either vote
yes or no to move it ahead.
The staff has found on two
occasions that changing it
to commercial is consistent
with the comprehensive
plan. That is what we are
moving forward on," Barn-
hill said.
The applicant's attorney,
Karen Moore said, "We are-
here. tonight to discuss the
alleged code violation and
whether or not it would pre-
vent a small scale land use

Freeport Council appoints




Mark Martin to fill vacancy


By BEN GRAFTON
At the opening of the
Freeport City Council meet-
ing on November 13, Mayor
Mickey Marse dedicated a
moment of silence in which
to remember Councilman
Mike Helton who succumbed
last week to cancer. Helton
served on the Council for a
remarkable period of time -
over 30 years. When he was
present, Mayor Marse al-
ways turned to him to offer
a prayer of guidance for the
work to be done.
A little later in the meet-
ing, Mark Martin was nomi-


nated and approved by
the Council to fill Helton's
unexpired term that ends
in 2010. Martin agreed to
the appointment and will
be sworn in at the Council
meeting of December 9.
In other business, Attor-
ney Clay Adkinson present-
ed the first reading of an or-
dinance for the annexation
of property owned by Earl
King on SR 20 West, near
the entrance to Hammock
Bay. The reading and ad-
vertisement were approved.
The second reading will be
presented at the first Coun-


cil meeting in December.
Fire Chief Ben Green-
slait reported that the Fire
Department answered 80
calls in October, twice the
number answered in Octo-
ber 2007. Greenslait also
reported that work is un-
derway on the project to
paint fire hydrants. He said
color codes are being used
and that hydrants will be
numbered for ease of iden-
tification when scheduling
maintenance work with the
Freeport Water Department.
He said that flow tests were
being performed at the time


the hydrapt is painted. He
added that pressure tests
will also be done when the
required testing equipment
is received. Greenslait said
that a $21,000 grant from
the Division of Foresty has
*been received and will be
applied to equipment pur-
chases.
The Council also gave
Greenslait approval for a
Christmas parade on De-
cember 13. The parade will
be after sunset and, tenta-
tively, will start at Freeport
Plantation and end at Free-
port Middle School.


Freeport Parks Director
Shane Supple reported that
weed and feed was applied
to park turf on November 8.
Supple also reported that
plans are being completed
for a 5K and a 10K race to
be held on December 20. He
said the event will be jointly
sponsored by the city, the:
YMCA and Hammock Bay.
It will be necessary to close'
Hammock Trail East for the
race. Future park events
will include softball in the
spring and a car show in

Mark Martin.- Freeport's new councilman


MARK MARTIN


By BEN GRAFTON
At its last meeting,
Freeport's City Council ap-
pointed Mark Martin to fill
an open seat on the Coun-
cil. The term will expire in
2010.
Martin, who will be 44
this month, was born in
Enterprise, AL., and was
brought to Freeport as a tod-
dler in 1967 when his family
moved here to run the Di-
xie Dandy grocery store. He
says his parents were the
best anyone could hope to
have.
Mark Martin was in the
first kindergarten class in
Freeport and went on to
graduate from Freeport
High School in 1982. He
now says that he was a
"spoiled brat" who went to
school to play sports. After
high school, at age 19, Mar-
tin married a Freeport girl,
but the marriage failed and
they were divorced in 1990.


During this time, he worked
at the grocery store and
at the same time enrolled
at Okaloosa Walton Com-
munity College, where he
earned an Associate of Sci-
ence degree in general stud-
ies in 1987. After his father
died in 1989, the store was
sold and he moved on to Tal-
lahassee, where he served
as a student assistant on
Coach Bowden's staff while
earning a criminal justice
degree.
There has been a lot of
water under the bridge since
then. He never worked in the
law enforcement field, but
took a job in the restaurant
business where he did well
and received promotions.
Following this, he took a
job with the Florida Depart-
ment of Revenue in Talla-
hassee where he worked for
over four years and learned
a lot about working in the
public sector. In 2001 he


had an opportunity to take
a job with Hertz car rentals
and soon received a promo-
tion to a management post
in Jacksonville, where he
commuted back and forth.
Martin said traveling
got old, and helped by wife
Rose, (another Freeport girl,
who he wed in 1993) who
sent out his resume to state
agencies, he landed another
job with the Department of
Environmental Protection's
Bureau of Public Land Man-
agement (BPLM). Mark de-
scribes this bureau as simi-
lar to the state's real estate
agent.
While with the BPLM,
Martin completed the Flori-
da Certified Public Manager
program and also became li-
censed as a real estate sales-
man and as a real estate
broker. During this period,
Martin said he also learned

Club generates $7,000

for community


The Kiwanis Club of
Freeport, a newly-formed
club, held its first annual
charity golf tournament
November 1 at Windswept
Dunes in Freeport. Local
.sponsors contributed to the
tournament and teams par-
ticipated from all over the lo-

wanis Club to pass along to
the local charities receiving
support from the Club. In
all, the tournament gener-
ated over $7,000 that will be
used to support the children
and citizens of the Freeport
area.
The winning team was
sponsored by Nokuse Plan-

platinum sponsors. Other
generous sponsors included

large portion of the funds
raised immediately to three
local organizations: Canaan

The



season


of



Thanksgiving

By RON KELLEY


'Can it really be true? Is Thanksgiving nearly upon us,
with Christmas already in sight? Where did the year go?'
Time does seem'to move faster as I get older.
I can remember when the seasons all had three months
and it seemed like eons between one Christmas and the
next. I can remember nearly bursting with the excite-
ment of waiting for family to arrive frdm Ohio to share
Thanksgiving or Christmas with the rest of us living here.
There were three boys, all around my age, and we some-
how squeezed months of fun into a couple of short weeks.
Later, a new addition (a pretty, tiny, blonde cherub) joined
the crew and was watched over by three older brothers and
one Florida cousin.
The meals were feasts and the raucous fun of four boys
unleashed on an unsuspecting community was unending.
There were visits to see aunts and uncles, cousins and
family friends; where photographs were taken, posed and'
stiff, but warm and wonderful to remember now.
These are the things that stand out in my memory -
not the toys or presents. I can barely recall any particular
toy, much less say whether it was brought by Santa or my
folks. What I recall now is the wonderful time we all had
together. No matter what was happening in the nation or
in the individual lives of the adults, at Thanksgiving and
Christmas we all came together as one large, loving family.
We laughed and cried, the grownups re-told stories from
long ago, traditions were begun arid upheld and memories
were made that still have the power to enthrall:
Now, these many years later, most of the old folks have
all passed on. The kids have.grown up and started families
of their own. They are s ~c ittieed and friagm en t d across,the'
country. Now, those faded old photographs are all that re-
main those and the memories so often recalled that even
they are worn and frayed around the edges.
As we approach this holiday season, I hope you'll take
time amidst the shopping and cooking and hurrying and
the million details that demand attention to gather with
your parents, your children, your siblings and your friends
and enjoy the pleasure of their company. I hope you'll
rejoice in the knowledge that these are the most special
times you will share with most of them; that these days
and these hours will be the things that last, the things that
sustain us when time has moved on and taken those we
love.
Before you get too busy preparing for this Thanksgiving
holiday, stop and take the time to actually give thanks to
the Almighty for blessings too rich to be bought, too pre-
cious to be sold and too dear to be forgotten. It is not what
we say about our blessings, but how we use them that is

Editor:
'How would you prioritize Walton County spending? With
the limited budget and the real prospect of very lean times
for government, what services would you cut or reduce?
The county has a de facto hiring freeze, offered some
employees a type of early retirement incentives, and cut "
department budgets. While many citizens feel the board of
county commissioners should not spend another dime, ev-
eryone wants fire protection, clean water, and. good roads.
Walton County has in the past not provided many basic
services or chose to allow private entities provide the ser-
vice. Are you satisfied with this situation? Would you like
.to see more standardized services or publicly provided ser-
vices?
Even the privatized or semi-privatized service providers
are struggling in the current business environment. How
are we going to ensure that the roads are safe, our futures
are secured from rampant misspending and our quality of
life remains at this current level or improves? These ques-
tions are to become more pressing as funds for services
are shrinking. Assistance for the county from the federal
and state governments will affect our shaky economy. Gov-
ernment funding will become even competitive as Walton
County will have to compete with other more populated
counties for funds.
S Some potential courses of action will require that we as
citizens inform the elected officials of our desires; a com-
prehensive program is need that begins to' outline policies
and programs that the citizens wish to use the position and
effectivenessin seeking and expending funds. The citizens
of Walton County can no longer afford to be idle while the,
:rest of Florida builds and prepares for .the.future;,Thdre is,
a real danger that Walton County will be left behind with-
out a serious plan to attract funds and businesses. We need
to analyze the effectiveness of our government services and
the ability to attract economic development opportunities.

Every year Red Ribbon Week is held in honor of Enrique
Camarena, a former DEA officer who was, killed in 1985
while investigating a major drug cartel in Mexico. I want to
thank all the teachers, students and staff at both Freeport
and Walton High School who created in this event. Hats off
to the media production class at Freeport High, who created
a phenomenal DVD on drug, alcohol and tobacco awareness
to show during school hours. Many thanks also to Domino's
Pizza, the Area Health Education Council (AHEC) and the.
Walton County Prevention Coalition, who provided prizes
and educational literature for this event.

Editor:
I was both dismayed and disturbed by your scathing
condemnation of President-elect Obama in you November
13 editorial. You went after him for everything from the
sound of his name to his place of birth. I do not think that
the President-elect had anything to do with where he was
bprn or the choice of his name. Many of us have heard of
people with much stranger names. A person's character,
intellect and ability are not dependent on his or her name.
And even John McCain did not attack the President-elect
on his birthplace (Honolulu) or his, eligible to run for of-
fice. John McCain was born in Panama.'Should he be con-
demned for that? Of course not.
I am astonished that the editor would launch a full-out
assault on President-elect Obama more than two months
before he has even assumed office, let along made even one
executive decision, signed one order or sent one piece of
proposed legislation to Congress. In his concession speech,
John McCain asked his followers to be gracious and to sup-.
port the n new.President-elect. Mr. Obama will be president
of all citizens, 'including those who did not vote for him.
Why can't all of us do what football teams are called on to
do all the time-rally around and support the new quarter-
back? After all, we are on the same team-team USA.
I for one am very disappointed by the tenor and tone of
the sentiments expressed by the editor. We do not need four
years of name-calling and bickering. We need four years of
unity and cooperation. If John McCain can work with and
support our new president, then so should the rest of the
American people.
I am cutting out the editorial and saving it so that in
four years we can look back and see if any of the editor's
many criticisms are on anyone's mind them.

Editor:
Many of you may remember my husband, Clay Fulcher,
from his many years as a service advisor at National Tire
Brokers. Even if you don't recall the name, you couldn't for-
get the friendly gray-haired guy who greeted you as you
came on the lot!
Last June, after many years of living in DeFuniak, we
moved to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia
where Clay could settled down in his "dream house" and
be closer to his mom, grown kids, and grandkids. Unfor-
tunately, that dream has been abruptly cut short. Within


Editor:
I just finished reading your editorial "Audacity of Change"
and I just had to sit down immediately and write you. I
want to say thank you for what you wrote.
You summed up my feelings exactly and I'm sure that
goes for the other 73 percent of Walton' County people who
voted just like I did.
I'll bet the local liberal crowd will scream when they read
it, but don't let that stop you from telling the truth. I'm cut-
ting this article out and sending copies of,it to all my out
of state friends. Did you notice that Bay, Escambia, Santa
Rose, Okaloosa, and Holmes counties voted this way, too?
I just want you to know how much I appreciate you and
the. Beach Breeze/Herald. Keep up the good work!

Editor:
Some of you may have heard about the recent investi-
gation by the Florida High School Athletic Association
(FHSAA) into allegations about violations supposedly com-
mitted by the Paxton Varsity Girls' Basketball Program.
Unfortunately, like most things reported in today's media,
very little'of the actual facts were told. Most people have
been lead to believe that Laurel Hill High School was the
only group responsible for reporting the alleged violations
to the FHSAA. It is true Laurel Hill High School did report
Paxton Girls' Varsity Basketball program to FHSAA about
alleged violations, but there was no evidence to support
them. This was the finding based on the investigation con-
ducted by a representative from the FHSAA. Paxton Girls'
Basketball Program was cleared of all.the.alleged violations
reported by laurel Hill High School.
What most people have not been told, as Paul Harvey
would say, is "The Rest of the Story." After being cleared by
the FHSAA, Paxton Girls' Basketball Program was again
reported to the FHSAA for alleged violations (this occurred
within a few days of the No Violations determination). At
first many people assumed that Laurel Hill High School
had again reported Paxton Girls' Basketball Program for
violating FHSAA rules and regulations, but this was! not
the case. According to a letter sent to Paxton School from
the FHSAA, and broadcast by several local radio stations,
Laurel Hill High School did not report Paxton the second
time. Instead, three individuals who are part of the Pax-
ton School staff were the individuals that collaborated and
made sure the second call to FHSAA about alleged viola-
tions was made. These staff members are supposed to sup-
port the best interest of the Paxton Student Body, as well
as Paxton School.
I have heard one reason the individuals gave to some
students at Paxton after admitting they were responsible
for the second call to FHSAA, was when asked a question
by the FHSAA official they had to tell the truth. But, if
these individuals had not made the call to the FHSAA and
reported alleged violations ty.the Paxton Girls' Basketball
SProgram, the representative from FHSAA would not have
had any questions! This excuse is pathetic and a desperate
attempt to cover up their inexcusable actions.
As adults, we teach our children to trust and respect the
school staff; but these same people in charge of the welfare
and well-being of students at Paxton deliberately and mali-
ciously set out to destroy the girls' basketball program. It is
difficult to continue to tell our children to believe they are
trustworthy.
The Paxton Girls' Basketball Program (past and present)
have worked hard to ensure 24 successful winning seasons
and definitely did not deserve to be lied to and deceived by
staff members. The individuals affected by the actions of
these staff members are the girls that proudly represent
Paxton School on the basketball court. These girls did not
deserve this and now must walk among these staff mem-
bers on the Paxton campus.
As an alumni of Paxton High School, I do not feel these staff
members deserve to represent Paxton School in any capac-
ity. After all, what else are they capable of?
Not surprisingly, these same staff members were the
ones responsible for the uproar concerning the Paxton Bob-
cat mascot two years ago. They thought they would change
the mascot image, but they were wrong. Now these staff
members' have set out to damage the integrity and good
name of Paxton High School.
In closing, I want to wish the Paxton Girls' Basketball
Program good luck with the upcoming season and let them
know how proud the community is of their hard work and
accomplishments. They are a great group of athletes! As a
Paxton Alumni, I am proud to have them carry on the Pax-
ton tradition of loyalty, hard work and dedication!

months of moving, Clay's health has deteriorated dramati-
cally and he is now disabled, on oxygen, spending most of
his days in a wheelchair. Although he is trying hard to keep
his spirits up and not get too discouraged, we know that
this sudden change in his life has been very difficult.
If you remember him fondly and would like to drop him
a card of support to brighten his day, we would greatly ap-
preciate it! The address is: Clay Fulcher, 521 Danville Pike,

mediate needs that will de-
fine our strategic priorities,"
Adkinson concluded.

Errant bullets have Shoal

River area resident concerned


By JEFFREYPOWELL
Don Esterberg's concerns
border on anger. Accord-
ing to the Shoal River area
resident as many as 12 er-
rant bullets have fallen on
the Mt. Olive subdivision
where he has lived for the
past three years. Mt. Olive
subdivision is seven miles
west of the intersection of
SR-285 and U.S. 90, and
less than half a mile north
of the Shoal River. Sporting
Clays and Shooting Center.
Recently, while enjoying
an afternoon respite on his
back porch, he and his wife
heard an unusual noise that
seemed to rattle the house.
Upon a close inspection of
the roof near where they
had been sitting, Esterberg
discovered a lodged bullet.
"I was afigry when the
round hit the house," he
said.- We did not expect:this ,:
to happen when we moved
here. I have no question
were the round came from."
He believes the round came
from the shooting center.
Esterberg and his neigh-
bors have called several
agencies, including the'
Okaloosa County Sheriffs
Office,'Alcohol .Tobacco and
Firearms agents and code
enforcement personnel, all
of which say their hands are
tied. "Does someone need to
get killed before we get some
help?" Esterberg lamented.
When Esterberg was
shopping for a lot to build
his home in 2004 he real-
ized there was a shooting
range in the area, although
it appeared to be closed. He
also felt that if it did reopen
that safety would not be a
concern. "I guess I felt com-
mon sense would prevail."
he said
According to current
Shoal River Shooting Cen-
.ter part-owner Larry Orr,
the range was in fact tempo-
rarily closed in 2004 as the
business changed hands.
Since then Orr feels he has
addressed safety issues the
best he can.
"I approach this endeavor
in a professional manner,"
said Orr, who has 30 years
of firearm experience both
in and out of the military. "I
have addressed all the safe-
ty procedures that are pru-
dent to the facility. I do not
feel that the round that hit
Mr. Esterberg's 'home came
from here."
Since owning the facility,
Orr and his partner have
spent $18,000 on upgraded
safety measures. This in-
clu'des removal of 34,000
pounds of spent ammunition
to prevent ricochets, and in-
stalling large pipes that re-
quire a shooter to fire only
toward the designated tar-
get. Orr does admit that any
time humans are involved
there could be accidents, but
insists that improper habits
at the facility are not toler-
ated. He also feels the resi-
dents of the adjacent subdi-
vision are safe.
"I would not have a prob-
lem living in that neighbor-
hood," he said. "I want to be
part of the community and


the safety of my neighbors is
very important to me."
Ultimately, Esterberg be-
lieves there is room for com-
promise. "I am not trying to


put anyone out of business,"
he said. "We are neighbors
and must get along, but the
safety of the residents must
be addressed."

USDA announces amended farm bill, new sign-up deadline


Jeff Barber,, county ex-
ecutive director of USDA's
Farm Service Agency in
Walton County, announced
that owners and operators
of farms with 10 or fewer
base acres now have the
opportunity to receive pay-
ments for the 2008 Direct
and Counter-cyclical Pay-
ment Program (DCP).

"President Bush recently
signed into law a bill that
made amendments to the
2008 Farm Bill," said CED
Barber. "These amend-
ments apply to farms with
crop acreage bases of 10.
acres or less and to the new
supplemental .revenue as-
sistance (SURE) Program.
These changes and clarifica-
tions allow some producers
more flexibility in farming
practices and create new
sign-up opportunities with
new deadlines for some


farms."
As originally enacted
under the 2008 Farm Bill,
direct and countercycli-
cal payments (DCP) could
not be made with respect
to farms with crop acreage
bases of 10 acres or less.
The new law makes that
provision inapplicable for
the 2008 crop year. Related
to this, producers on a farm
with 10 acres or less of base
may now, under the new
law, enroll their farms until
Nov. 26, 2008, in the 2008
DCP program.. This exten-
sion of the original Sept. 30
deadline only applies to pro-
ducers who were previously
excluded because of the
minimum acreage require-
ment. USDA began issuing
payments to producers on
farms with 10 base acres
or less who had already en-
rolled in the DCP program
soon after the President


signed the new law.
USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA) will now re-
sume allowing reconstitu-
tions for farms with 10 acres
of base or less according to
normal reconstitution rules
and policy. Eligible produc-
ers may sign up for DCP at
any FSA office or enroll on
the FSA website at: www.
fsa.usda.gov/dcp" click on
Access eDCP Services.
Supplemental Revenue As-
sistance Program (SURE)
Changes
Under SURE in the 2008
Farm Bill, producers seek-
ing disaster benefits must
generally have obtained
crop insurance or coverage
under the non-insured crop
disaster assistance program
(NAP) for all crops on all
farms. Under the new law
(P.L; 110-398), producers
with crops that had 2009
crop insurance sales closing


dates before Aug. 14, 2008,
may pay a fee through Jan.
12, 2009, to participate in
SURE. Producers may make
their SURE participation
fee payments to their local
FSA office at this time.
The SURE program fee
is equal to the fee for cata-
strophic coverage. Payment
of the SURE program fee
will not make the producer
eligible for insurance cover-
age.
Producers also have a
new minimum loss thresh-
old under SURE. Under
the new law, to qualify for
payments, there must be a
production loss of at least 10
percent for at least one crop
of economic significance on
the farm.
Under the SURE pro-
gram, the new law provides
that when a second crop is
planted after the first crop
was prevented from being


planted, or if such first crop
failed, the second planting
will not count toward the
SURE program guarantee
or total farm revenue. This
is true except in areas where
double-cropping is a normal
practice. Producers also are
not required to purchase
crop insurance or a NAP
policy for the second crop.
By provision of the new
statute, the purchase of in-
surance or a NAP policy for
grazed acreage is no longer
a requirement for the SURE
program. However, such in-
surance is required as a con-
dition for payment for the
livestock feed program, tree
assistance program and the
emergency livestock, honey-
bees and farm-related fish
programs.
In addition, the new law
amends SURE eligibility so
that crop insurance or NAP
coverage is no longer re-


quired for crops that are not
of economic significance or
those where the administra-
tive fee required to buy NAP
coverage exceeds 10 percent
of the value of the coverage.
.Producers can contact their
local FSA office for more in-
formation regarding SURE
program implementation.

NAP application clos-
ing dates for the 2009 crops
have been extended to Dec.
1, 2008. This extension for
2009 NAP applies to those
crops havingan application
closing date prior to Dec. 1,
2008. This extension was
authorized due to the late
enactment of the 2008 Farm
Bill and to accommodate
those applicants wanting
to participate in disaster
assistance programs under
the 2008 Act's supplemental
agricultural disaster assis-
tance for their 2009 crops.


DEP agents put a lid on waste violations


Staff reports
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection-
(DEP) law enforcement
agents last week arrested
a business owner for violat-
ing the Florida Litter Law,
a third-degree felony pun-
ishable by up to five years
in prison and/or a fine up.


to $5,000. Jim L. Keeler,
of Jim Keeler Enterprises,
Inc., was also charged with
two first degree misdemean-
ors, each punishable by up
to one year in prison and/or
a fine up to $1,000.
."Thanks to an anony-
mous complaint made by
the public, we were able to


solve this environmental
crime," said DEP Division of
Law Enforcement Director
Henry Barnet. "We encour-
age all citizens to utilize
tools like dialing #DEP from
a cellular phone or calling
the State Warning Point
(1-877-2-SAVE-FL) to help
us enforce Florida's laws


and better protect our envi-
ronnient."
DEP's one month investi-
gation of the trucking main-
tenance and repair business
located at 1279 CR,2A in
Walton County revealed the
illegal disposal of business-
generated waste on an ad-
jacent timberland property


Two arrested on burglary, possession charges


On Nov. 8, Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs deputies stopped
a vehicle that had been sus-
pected in several burglar-
ies to businesses in Walton
County and in the city of De-
Funiak Springs. Inside the
vehicle deputies discovered
tools that could be used in


burglaries and also discov-
ered less than 20 grams of
marijuana.
The two occupants of the
vehicle were arrested, Sha-
dler Charles Roehm, 18,
of DeFuniak Springs, and
Shane Harper Roehm, 27,
also of DeFiuniak Springs.


Each was charged -with one
count of possession of bur-
glary tools, one count of
possession of marijuana un-
der 20 grams, one count of
burglary, one count of petit
theft under $300, and one
count of criminal mischief.
Both were transported


to the Walton County Jail
Facility. Shadier Charles
Roehm bonded out on Nov.
10 on a $20,500 bond. Shane
Harper Roehm is still being
held in the Walton County
Jail on a $22,500 bond.
The case is still under in-
vestigation by the' Sheriffs
Office.. ,' -

owned by Keeler. Approxi-
mately 30 cubic yards of
waste were discovered, in-
cluding several hundred un-
crushed, used oil filters and
11, 55-gallon barrels of used
oil.
Investigators also discov-
ered that in the eight years
Jim Keeler Enterprises had
been in business as a com-
mercial, trucking company,
the company had ,never
hired or used a solid waste
contractor to dispose' of its
commercial solid waste. In-
stead, Keeler had directed
his employees to dispose of
the business' waste by mov-
ing the waste to the adjacent
timberland, then burning
and/or burying the debris.
DEP's Division of Law
Enforcement is responsible
for statewide environmental
resource law enforcement,
providing law enforcement


services to Florida's' state
parks and greenways and
trails. Agents investigate
environmental resource
crimes and illegal dredge
and fill activities, and re-
spond to natural disasters,
civil unrest, hazardous ma-
terial incidents and oil spills
that threaten the environ-
ment.
To report an environ-
mental crime, wireless
customers can now dial
#DEP. Callers can also re-
port environmental crimes
to the State Warning Point
by calling (877) 2-SAVE-FL
(1.877.272.8335). General
environmental inquiries
should be directed to DEP
district offices during busi-
ness hours.

A home for the holidays


By ASHLEYAMASON

Habitat for Humanity
is giving a Walton County
family the greatest gift this
holiday season: Christmas
in their own home.
Construction began on
the Hagar family house
the weekend of Oct. 4, and
.thanks to volunteer support,
the house is expected to be
completed'by late December,
said Habitat for Humanity
Volunteer Relations Chair
Heather Brookshire, "so
that the Hagars can spend
Christmas in their very own
home."
Brookshire praised the
volunteer response, saying
"An average of 20-25 vol-
unteers participate every
weekend. In addition, five to
10 folks participate during
the Tuesday work days."
"It has been such a bless-


ing to see the reaction of the
Hagar family. It is a true joy
to see the smiles of satisfac-
tion and happiness on their
faces as they watch their
home being built at a record
pace. In fact, the reactions of
families like the Hagars are
the very reason our dedicat-
ed core of volunteers shows
up weekend after weekend,
rain or shine. Many of the
Hagars themselves have
participated in the building
of their home and will con-
tinue to do so until the home
is completed," Brookshire
said.
Brpokshire went on to
explain, "The Hagar fam-
ily went through the Fam-
ily Selection Committee,
a team of compassionate,
committed volunteers that
are accountable to the board
of directors: The Family Se-
lection Committee chooses,


partner families based on
their level of need, -family
size, willingness to become
partners in the
program, and ability to re-
pay the no-interest loan.
Every project follows a non-
discriminatory policy of
selection. Habitat is not a
giveaway program. In ad-
dition to a .down payment
and monthly mortgage pay-
ments, the Hagars, like
all other Habitat partner
families, invest hundreds
of hours of their own labor
(sweat equity) into building
their own home as well as
the homes of others."

To find out how to volun-
teer with Habitat for Hu-
manity and help the Hagars
spend Christmas in their
own home, contact Heath-
er Brookshire at 850-855-

Christmas tree for all

Opinion Place


By JEFFREY POWELL
One ride around the
Lakeyard and you will see
that it is looking a lot like
Christmas. S:anta Claus,
reindeers and nativity
scenes are*well: represented'
and ready to celebrate the
season. In addition to the old
favorites two local women
have added a special Christ-
mas tree intended to honor
area veterans and their
families. Oletta Ray and El-
len Mayfield have erected
a tree under the Opinion
Place pavilion on Baldwin
Avenue. They are inviting
area residents who have or
have had family members in
the military to visit the tree


and add an ornament.
"I have a soft spot in my
heart for military personnel
and the role they play," said
Ray. "This tree is meant not
only to focus on the military
members but also on their
families."
Ray is no stranger to un-
derstanding. the sacrifices
military members and their
families make. Ray's daugh-
ter-in-law, Capt. Catherine
Tucker, is currently serving
in Iraq and will be absent
from her family for the'holi-
days.
"My son is going to be
without his wife and my
grandchildren are going to

Fire at Holiday


Road business


The South Walton Fire
District (SWFD) was noti-
fied of a structure fire at
6:10 a.m. and arrived four
minutes later to find smoke
bellowing from Tamtech
Pool & Spa, located at 185
N. Holiday Rd. After quick-
ly gaining access into the
building, the crews located
and extinguished the fire at
6:37 a.m., 17 minutes after
arriving on scene.
The business was closed at
the time of the fire and there
were no injuries reported.
The early detection and no-


tification of the SWFD of the
fire by neighbors, coupled
with the prompt response
and extinguishment by the
Fire District kept damages
at a minimum. The State
Fire Marshal's office was
contacted to investigate the
cause of the fire and has de-
termined that it was electri-
cal in nature.

Both Mayfield and Ray
cite their love of family ,and
country as inspiration in
this endeavor. 'they feel that
during this time of year,
everyone should recognize
those that fight and work for
American freedoms.
"Without their service, we
would not have the privilege

said. "We welcome anyone
with a veteran in their fami-
ly to place a small ornament
on the tree."
The veterans Christmas

This well will replace well
No. 4. The new well will
have an 18-inch casing, up
from10 inches on No. 4. The

change.
Commissioner Randy
Gardner noted, "If code en-
forcement has not estab-
lished any violation, it is not
relevant."
Blackshear said, "There
is a code enforcement com-
plaint filed. The land was
grandfathered in the neigh- .
borhood commercial cat-
egory. The problem is what
he is doing there is beyond
the use authorized previ-
ously. What he has there is
ATV sales and repair, which
fits the general commercial
rules. For him to come into
compliance (of today's land
code), he is still out of com-
pliance even with a small-
scale amendment. We don't
feel that unless he tears
his buildings down he can
meet the standards with the
buildings he has there. I've
not understood that part of
this request. I think this is
the only component that can.
be addressed, but realizing
this will not bring him into
compliance. He's non-con-
forming. His use is compli-
ant, but his structures are
not. His site would simply
not comply. This site cannot
be fixed without major mod-
ifications," she concluded.
Barnhill said, "We do un-

Mallet Bayou property four
years ago as a prerequisite
to getting sewer service. He
also made arrangements to
pay the sewer tap fees for
his property. However, sew-
er lines have not yet been
installed and there is no
future date projected when
they will be installed. Since
he says that sewer service
(which he thinks should be
used by all area residents)
is what he really'needs. He
feels the arrangement is un-
fair and that relief should be
granted. After discussion,
the Council agreed to table
the matter so they may
study the situation further
before making a.decision.

with the amendments there
will be a challenges ahead.
If we move to commercial,
that gives us a chance. Give
us an opportunity to come
back with a proposed devel-
opment order," he conclud-
ed.
Rhodes disagreed, saying,
"Let's get to the merit of the
application. If it is changed
to commercial, it is almost
impossible to comply. It is a
100-foot wide parcel, which
cannot meet the buffer re-
quirements. My issues are
the utilities, a wellhead pro-
tection zone,'and the inten-
sity issue of moving it from
urban residential to com-
mercial due to incompatibil-
ity and traffic concurrency,.
Currently there are compat-
ibility issues and I do not be-
lieve going to a more intense
land use category is compat-
ible with the comp plan."
Neighbor Nina Porter
said, "The applicant does
not have enough property to
do what he is doing. He is al-
ways blocking the easement.
He has taken the easement
to my house and my moth-
er's house. He does not have
enough property to park his
vehicles or the vehicles of
those that work with him.
He has no place for parking.
He has buildings all over
the property," she said.
Blackshear noted well-
heads do not need 400-foot
protection as it is not a pub-


lic supply wellhead, but does
need the 200-foot protection
for a private well.
Commissioner Gardner
said, "We have heard a lot of
testimony and allegations.
It appears there may be an
inconsistency in the land
use and if the small-scale
amendment is granted,
whether or not they.can do
something with the land or
not is not our concern. My
point is what do we think
about compatibility to the
area?"
Commissioner Patton
said, "All across SR 83 there
is existing industrial and
commercial use of the land.
The best way to solve the
problem is to get them into
compliance with the devel-
opment code."
Patton moved to approve
the amendment request by
a vote of four to three with
Terrell, Susan Horn and
Hugh Marse rejecting.

scale amendment request

a completed 1500 skiff. He is holding a sample of five-pound density closedfoam board that
is used instead of wood. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)





Local boat builder





combines old





with new


By JEFFREY POWELL

Florida has one of the
highest boat ownerships per
capital in the United States.
Over the years, countless
styles and models have been
engineered and construct-
ed to ply the waterways of
the state. It is only natural
that some of the styles suc-
ceed while others fade into
memory. One of the most
successful small boats was
the Kennedy Craft skiff.
The Kennedy Craft was pro-
duced for years in Destin
and went out. of business ap-
proximately 25 years ago.
"The Kennedy Craft skiff
is legendary," said local boat
builder Captain Donnie
Brown. "It seems like every-
body has some knowledge of
the old boat."
Brown has taken the pos-
itive aspects of Richmond
Kennedy's original idea and
incorporated new technolo-
gies to create the DC Brown
1500 skiff. With over four
years of re-design and engi-
neering Brown has recently


started construction of his
improved model. Gone is
the wood framework now
replaced with closed' foinim
board. Brown has also in-
creased the rail height and
added features that make
the vessel more stable: The
vessel is just over 14.5 feet
in length and weighs 500
ponds.
"We have incorporated
new style and technologies
to improve an old legend,"
Brown said. "We made the
boat lighter, faster and
more.durable. These boats
will last a lifetime."
As part of an official cer-.
tification process, Brown re-
cently took one of his skiffs
to a Coast Guard testing
facility in Maryland. Engi-
neers at the facility drilled
holes in the vessel and sunk
it for eighteen hours. They
also tested for stability and
workmanship. According to
Brown the boat passed "with
flying colors."
Brown's company also
makes larger boats but ad-
mits sales have been slowed


by recent economic realities.
Rather than be discouraged,
he feels the new skiff will
provide an affordable vessel
for the boating enthusiast.
"We. feel this skiff will
fill a void in the market,"
said Brown. "Customers
can get a rigged boat with
motor and trailer for under
$10,000. People still want to
get on the water."
Brown is working closely
with L&L Marine in De-
Funiak Springs. Brown's
company sends L&L a
"blank" boat to be rigged,
Customers can have the
boat rigged in many differ-
ent styles and formats to fit
their needs.
"We are working hand-:
in-hand with L&L Marine
to keep the business in the:
local community," Brownr
said. "The boat will be built
anyway a customer wants;
We are hometown and lo-
cal."

For more 'information
about the skiff, see dccus-
tomboatworks.com.

would not believe that a happy marriage

The couple celebrated their 70th Weddinge

The Thoas' have four children, 10 grand-
children and 10 great-grandchildren. They
still live ind.ependently and they arie both still

retired as a civil service employee from Eglin
Air Force Base, FL. He is also a retired farm-
er who enjoys gardening and growing flow-
ers. Adelia Thomas enjoys sewing and being
the housewife that she has always been.
When asked about the secretsand/or tips
for a long. happy marriage, the Thomas'

and to each other. They also believe in "good,
clean living." Beyond that, Adelia Thomas
offered another suggestion---"you just keep

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2008

Ask

Auntie Em
Dear Auntie Em,
I come from a large family and we always have a big Thanksgiving. This year has
been especially hard on my siblings where money is concerned. Three of my five sib-
lings have lost their jobs. My parents are on a fixed income and I am concerned because
Thanksgiving is going to seem expensive for the first time since-I can remember.
We have all agreed to have the celebration at my house and things are tight for us,
as well. How can I cover everything and not put us in the red, too? Any ideas would be
so appreciated.
Thankful, but worried in Walton
(Name and address withheld by request.)
Dear Thankful,
I think your name says it all. You still have your family, so be thankful of this bless-
ing and let's break down a way to have a happy and economical Thanksgiving.
First, we always cook too much for fear we won't have enough to go around. So, plan
your menu carefully and don't overdo it. Coordinate with your siblings who are still em-
ployed and discuss how they can contribute food-wise. I mean, how many green bean
casseroles do you really need? Also, really discuss with these siblings if yoil want a ham
or a turkey. Meat is usually the biggest part of the Thanksgiving tab.
After you have a menu planned out and have agreed on who is bringing what, scour
the sales papers for the best deals for the ingredients you need. We spend more when
we don't utilize a plan or stick to a list. Think outside of the box when you do this.
Usually seasonal produce, and the trimmings are on sale, but if you find a better deal
on apple pie than pumpkin, go the cheaper route. Pick generic over name brands and
cook your turkey the old fashion way, instead of the fancier self-basting pricier model.
Also, look in your pantry and freezer for what you already have, as well, and ask
your siblings to do the same. If there is a family favorite, such as fish or venison, and
someone has it in the freezer, add it to your menu. It will encourage memories and con-
versation around the table and that is what Thanksgiving is all about being thankful
for each other and enjoying our time together here, no matter what temporary troubles
we may have.


God bless, good luck and Happy Thanksgiving.
Auntie Em

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20,2008


Christmas Tour of Homes planned for Dec. 6


Take a stroll time at the
18th Annual Tour of Homes
on Saturday, Dec. 6, in
DeFuniak Springs, FL.
With its charming
Victorian architecture
reflecting the town's
Chautauqua heritage and
the beautiful lake in the
center of its historic down-
town, the city welcomes
thousands of visitors annu-
ally, but visitors always
receive a very special wel-
come on the first Saturday
in December during the
Christmas Tour of Homes.
The tour is sponsored by
Partners in Progress, a
DeFuniak Springs non--
profit public service organi-
zation.

Homes are selected for
the tour each year on the
basis of their unique per-
sonalities and perceived
attractiveness to the
diverse group of people who
attend year after year. With
18 years' experience, mem-
bers of Partners in Progress
recognize and appreciate
that the older homes in and
around DeFuniak. Springs
hold strong appeal for tour


enthusiasts. "Therefore, his-
toric homes have always
been an integral part of the
annual tour, and this year's
tour is no exception.

However, experience has
also shown that not eve-
ryone is especially inter-
ested in older houses. For
them, having the oppor-
tunity to see owners' varied
decorative styles and tastes
and more contemporary
homes is of interest. As ir
past years, the 2008 tour
offers a broad scope of deco-
rative styles and interests
running the gamut from
vintage antiques to contem-
porary de'cor, from family
heirlooms to eclectic collec-
tions.
The Lil' Trolley, a vin-
tage trolley authentically
restored recently by
Partners in Progress, is
scheduled to make its offi-
cial debut on Dec. 6. The
trolley is the realization of a
loig-held dream of Partners
in Progress, and members
look forward to its appear-
ance on the DeFuniak
Springs scene.
The 2008 Annual Tour of


Homes will be Saturday,
Dec. 6, from 9 a.m. 4:30
p.m. Tickets are: adults,
$18.75 plus tax; children 12


and under $7.50 plus tax,
with babes in arms free.
Tickets may be pur-
chased the day of the tour


from 8 a.m. 3 p.m. at The
DeFuniak Springs Visitors
Center on Circle Drive and
at The Big Store on


Baldwin Avenue.
For additional infor-
mation, call 892-3191, or
892-2448.


WILDWOOD (C 1890), at 324East Main Avenue, returns to the Annual Tour of Homes this year. The large home with
its six fireplaces, four baths, and mother-in-law suite is one of DeLuniak's oldest houses. The original owner chose the
home's location for its views of both Lake DeFuniak and then new L&NRailroad line.

How would you like to be
such a failure in life that
failure was built into your
name?
'Have you heard of Barti-
maeus, a blind man Jesus
met on the roadside in Jer-
icho?
You might think that
Bartimaeus was a name.like
Tom or Gary or Josh. No,
Bartimaeus means "son of
Timai," or "son of unclean-
ness."
Bartimaeus was born a
failure.
His father was consid-
ered unclean for some rea-
son and now here he was,
son of the unclean one.
The fact that he was blind
only confirmed to the Jews
that he was a sinner from
a family of sinners totally
outside God's favor.
But here came Jesus
walking along with a large
crowd in tow.
Something rose up inside
Bartimaeus to frustrate the
failure he had lived with
since birth.

That something was


faith. He raised such a ruck-
us and would not be:quieted.
until finally "Jesus ,stopped
and said, 'Call him."' (Mark
10:49)
As Bartimaeus jumped-
to his feet to meet Jesus, he
did something interesting.
He threw his cloak off.
,Blind men wore special
cloaks to mark themselves
and their condition.
This son of uncleanness
was so certain that Jesus
would heal him that he
threw his blind cloak away.
How did faith finish?
When Jesus asked him


what he wanted, "the blind
man said, 'Rabbi, I want to
see.'"(Mark 10:51)

"Go,' said Jesus, 'your
faith has healed you." (Verse
52) He received his sight im-
mediately.

Are you sitting by the
roadside in failure? It can't
be worse than Bartimaeus.
Start raising a ruckus.
When Jesus calls, throw the
failure cloak off and wrap
yourself in faith. Remember
Bartimaeus: faith cancels
failure.

Walton football rolls in finale 54-6


By PATRICK CASEY
,The Walton Braves closed
their 2008 football season a
long way from home with a
54-6 victory over the Frank-
lin County Seahawks. Trav-
eling to the new school that
is located between Apala-
chicola and Carrabelle took
more time than it did for
the Braves to build a 34-0
halftime lead and Walton
wrapped up- their second
c nsecutive winning season
uhder Walton Head Coach
Ienny Jankowski with a 6-4
record.

The Braves enjoyed the
trip as the rain stayed away
from their finale while the
points came in bunches. Is-
sac Jackson scored the first
three touchdowns for the
Braves, much as he has done
ii several ofWalton's games
over the last two years. He
ran for a pair of scores and
caught an 18-yard touch-
down pass from senior quar-
terback Tarrell Bramlet for


a 21-0 lead.
Senior Deron Hogans,
Walton's leading receiver,
got in on the act with an
8-yard touchdown reception
from Bramlet to increase the
lead to 27-0. Bramlet capped
the scoring with a smooth
50-yard run moments before
halftime to up the lead after
24 minutes of play to 34-0.
Franklin County came
out of the locker room and
put together their only scor-
ing drive of the night as they
marched 65 yards, all on the
ground, as senior quarter-
back Gene Anderson dove
in from two yards out to cut
the lead to 34-6.
The rest of the game
was played with a running
clock, perhaps due to the
bad weather in the area,
as Walton tacked on three
more touchdowns over the
final 15 minutes of play. Se-
nior Jack Nowling caught
a 7-yard touchdown pass to
increase the lead to 41-6.
D'Von Campbell followed


a few moments later with
an 8-yard reception from
Liam Miller, who threw two
touchdown passes in the
fourth quarter, to move the
margin to 48-6. Franklin
County fumbled the ensu-
ing kickoff and freshman
Conona Tarrant scooped up
the loose football and ran it
in from 42 yards out for the
final margin of victory.

Issac Jackson led the
Braves with 83 rushing
yards on five carries. Jack-
son finished the 2008 season
with 1,306 rushing yards
and 15 rushing touchdowns.
Bramlet threw for 79
yards, giving him 1,215
passing yards with 10 touch-
down strikes in 2008.
The Braves picked off
three passes during the
game as Deron Hogans,
John Querisma and D'Von
Cambpell each snatched
passes that were intended
for Seahawk receivers.
Walton finished a two-


year sweep of the Seahawks
that saw the Braves out-
score Franklin County 120-
6 in the two contests. The
Seahawks, who just finished
their first two seasons of
football, are 0-20 in varsity
play in their young history.
The game was the final
contest for about a dozen
Walton seniors, including
Kelby Willcox, who returned
to the field after his bout
with encephalitis earlier
this season.
Walton, like all the other
football teams across the
state, will await the Florida
High School Athletic Asso-
ciation's release of the 2009
classifications and new dis-
tricts for the sport in the
next few weeks. Walton,
which has about 700 stu-
dents at the high school lev-
el, has been a Class 2A team
in District 1 with Pensacola
Catholic and Mairanna as
their district foes for the last
four seasons in the sport of
football.

Walton volleyball falls in second round


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
volleyball traveled to Pen-
sacola Catholic for a second
round state playoff game
against a familiar foe. Wal-
ton earned a fourth meeting
with the Crusaders by virtue
of their win over Marianna
in the first round, and the
Braves were seeking a win
over the host squad in hopes
of qualifying for Saturday's
region final.

Walton started the match
well as they built a 15-13
lead on the way to a 25-22
opening set victory. The


Braves were nearly flaw-
less in the first set, and the
Crusaders made a couple of
crucial errors trailing 23-22
that helped Walton pull out
the opening stanza in front
of a large crowd that was
nearly evenly split with fans
of both teams.
Walton held a 16-12 lead
in the second set as senior
Alex Infinger got hot from
the service line as Walton
rolled up several points in
a row to threaten to take a
2-0 match lead. Walton hit
a cool streak towards the
end of the set, though, and
saw the Crusaders rally to


tie the match at 24-all. Un-
fortunately for Walton, the
Crusaders won the next two
points to even the match at
one set apiece.

The close loss took the
wind out of Walton's sails as
Catholic cruised to an easy
25-9 win in the third set.
Little went right for Wal-
ton as the unforced errors
mounted while the Braves
tried to regain their touch.
The Braves struck back
in the fourth set as they
fought the Crusaders to an
18-18 deadlock, only to see
the home team run off for


a 25-19 win in the final set
that drew a close to the Wal-
ton season.
Senior Betsy Stevenson
provided 14 assists while
Delaney Bell had 13 kills.
Shannon Bell added 21 digs
with Casey Perkins contrib-
uting nine kills in the Braves
final match of the season.
Pensacola Catholic (18-7)
won all three of their match-
es with Walton at home, los-
ing in Walton during the
regular season. After strug-
gling the first two sets, the
Crusaders hit their stride in
winning the last two to ad-
vance to the region final at


Jacksonville Bolles.
Walton (20-9) wrapped
up one of their most success-
ful seasons since the 1998
squad made the region final.
The Braves played a solid
match, but struggled in the
dimly lit venue that Pensa-,
cola Catholic is known for.

Game Notes: Walton
coach Marla Harrell is 63-
44 in four seasons as the
Lady Braves head coach.
The Braves have had win-
ning seasons for three of
the last four years under
Harrell and have made the
state playoffs three times


during that span. Walton
graduates seven seniors,
so there will be several po-
sition vacancies to fill in
2009. Walton will be reclas"-:
sified, as will all the volley,,.
ball teams in the state, s.'
their district opponents will
not be known for next year
until the state releases the
new line-up sometime in the'
next two months. Pensacola
Catholic lost at Jacksonville'
Bolles in the Region final irin
four sets. Bolles defeated:
the Crusaders 23-25, 25-15<;
25-14, and 25-18 to advance"
to the Class 3A Final Four'
in Lakeland this week.


WALTON'S DELANEY BELL and Alex Infinger await a serve by Pensacola Catholic
during the Braves second round playoff game with the Crusaders last week.


\IALTON ITON THE FIRST SET at Pensacola Catholic, but the next three went to the-
home team as the Crusaders eliminated the Bravesfrom the Class A playoffs in the second'
round last week.

South Walton rallies for 25-21 win


By PATRICK CASEY
Jake Hawkins caught
a 41-yard touchdown pass
from Cody Adams on the
first play after a 40-minute
weather delay to complete a
Seahawk rally from a 21-6
deficit as South Walton
snatched another victory
from the jaws of defeat with
a 25-21 win over the'Sneads
Pirates.


The Seahawks threw four
touchdown passes in the
win as Hunter Infinger had
scoring receptions of seven
and 35 yards, and David
Bazylak added a receiving
touchdown while leading
the Seahawks in rushing on
the night.
Sneads built a 21-6 lead
as Jeff Davis and Mark
Lawson scored the three


Sneads touchdowns via the
rushing game to build the
early lead. The Pirates had
a 92-yard scoring drive in
the first quarter as Davis
cashed in from four yards
out to put the squad on top.
The Pirates also recovered
an onside kick early in the
game, but the Seahawks de-
fense rose up to put a stop to
that scoring threat.


The Seahawks moved
the ball consistently on the
Pirates, but fumbled away
a scoring chance on their
first possession of the game
at the Sneads 8-yard line,
then were stopped on downs
in Pirates territory on their
.next possession to trail 7-0
after one quarter of play.
The Seahawks trailed 21-
19 when a 40-minute weath-


er delay was forced by bad
weather in the area. Fortu-
nately for the Seahawks, the
game was able to resume as
the Seahawks improved to
8-2 with the victory.
South Walton will host
Panama City Bozeman in
the school's first-ever home
playoff game. South Walton
beat the Bucks on 28-27 on
September 19 as Hunter In-


finger broke up a two-point
conversion pass play to pre-
serve the win. Kickoff is set
for 7:30 p.m. and the game
can be heard on TV-24 start-
ing at 7:15 p.m. for local res-
idents.
The winner of the first
round Class 2B contest will
face the Baker-Florida High
winner on November 28 in
the second.round.

The South Walton Coun-
ty Tourist Development
Council (TDC) continues to
report good news about in-
creasing bed tax revenues
over 2007. To date, more
than. $11 million has been
collected through Septem-
ber. 2008, representing an
increase of 5.18 percent over
last year. This information
was provided in the regular
monthly meeting last week.
Under. the category of
old business, Dave Sell, the
manager for beach main-


tenance, reported on three
public meetings held to dis-
cuss the construction of re-
strooms at Inlet Beach. He
said the main concerns of
the public-were the location
of the facilities, which origi-
nally called for construc-
tion 80 feet seaward from
the road, which would have
resulted in destroying too
much scrub habitat. After
looking at it again, design-
ers decided to put the struc-
ture closer to the road.
Sell said people were also
concerned about the size.


"People felt it was too large
and would destroy too much
vegetation habitat. The
third issue was the environ-
ment, but after inspecting a
waterless system elsewhere
in the state, it was decided
a more traditional facility
would be better," Sell noted.
"The staff feels we have an
obligation to meet not only
today's needs, but also to
look to the future by build-
ing a bigger restroom now.

THE NOV. 10 MEETING of the Walton County Com-
mission was the final one for outgoing District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows, who did not run for reelection in the
2008 election. County Commission Chairman Larry Jones
presented Meadows with a plaque in appreciation for her
service. "It has been an honor to serve," Meadows said.

Aresco serves as direc-
tor for Nokuse Plantation, a
48,500-acre privately-owned
conservation area near the
Bruce and Freeport areas.
Nokuse Plantation is owned
by M.C. Davis, a Walton
County businessman and
conservationist. The prop-
erty serves as a vital ink
between approximately one
million acres of conserva-
tion land in the Florida Pan-
handle area.
Aresco called the planta-
tion "a warehouse for biodi-
versity into the filture." He
noted that 19,000 acres of
the property are protected in
perpetuity through a state
conservation easement,
and that the remainder of
Nokuse has been proposed
for protection in this man-
ner.
Aresco described Nokuse
Plantation's ongoing efforts
to restore the property to a
"pre-European-settlement
condition." Prior to being ac-


trees.
Aresco said there is "de-
tective work" involved with
restoration because the
oldest aerial photos of the
property go back only to the
1940s. Restoration work re-
lies heavily on prescribed
burning and involves thin-
ning out trees and removal
of non-native plant species,
some of which are quite in-
vasive, he told attendees.
It also involves replanting
with native plant species
such as the longleaf pine
and native ground covers.
He displayed photos of
Nokuse's diverse native
plant communities. He re-
vealed that 14 rare plant
species have been identified
on the property, along with
23 rare animal species. The
most endangered of those
is Florida's only population
of the Cooley's Meadowrue
plant, one of North Amer-
ica's rarest plants, Aresco
commented:

tion's goals is bringing back
the native gopher tortoise, a
species once existing in the
hundreds of thousands in
the Panhandle, Aresco con-
tinued.
Aresco said that 14 sites
have been set up on Nokuse
for relocation of gopher tor-
toise populations that have
been impacted by develop-
ment. These animals, which
live in deep burrows, are
carefully collected by means
of backhoes and moved to
the plantation. Aresco said
the tortoises must be con-
fined with barriers for a
12-month period to keep
them from trying to migrate
back to the location of their
original burrows. After that
period they stay in place
without confinement, and
successful reproduction is
now occurring with the relo-
cated tortoises, Aresco said.

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


By LEAH STRATMANN
This is a eulogy for my
beloved beagle Snazzy, who
last week was not faster
than a speeding 18-wheeler
and whose short and happy
life was extinguished much
too soon. Anyone finding this
grotesque has never had a
pet who very much becomes
a member of the family.
Snazzy and I found each
other at PAWS in early 2006.
She was just days from ex-
tinction when I adopted her,
so I guess she cheated death
once before. She was about
a year old when she was
picked up, without a collar,
wandering the streets in
Okaloosa County and"I was
attracted by her medium
size and beautiful face.
I was in the market for a
dog because a few months
before, another rescue I had
adopted at seven weeks of
age, was just shy of her 16th
birthday when her kidneys
failed and I had to put her
to sleep. Although it was a
painful decision to make,
it was the right thing to
do and she had a long and
happy life. She died in my
arms her favorite place to-
be in seconds and was at
peace. I had a good cry, but
we had been together for a
long time and I choose not to


subject her to painful treat-
ment just because I wasn't
ready to say goodbye.
Sudden death brings on dif-
ferent emotions. Snazzy was
a hound and was always
ready to follow her curious
nose anywhere it led. Fortu-
nately, she did not fight the
necessary tether she had to
endure because of living on
the highway. The night be-
fore she died; there was a
full moon and she was doing
her beagle thing, howling at
the moon. BradPittBull was
in the house and I went out
to get her lest she disturb
the neighbors. When I at-
tempted to go out the door
to get Snazzy, BradPittBull
almost knocked me down
racing out the door. He had
done this before and while it
always worries me, he has
so far survived.
As I was, tugging on the
tether to bring Snazzy to
me, her collar slipped off
her neck and she raced off
into the night. It was the
last I saw of her as she went
off on her adventure. I left
the porch light on and slept
in the recliner, so I would
be able to hear them when
they returned and scratched
at the door.
I awoke a bit after dawn
and saw BradPittBull at the


door and my neighbor com-
ing across the yard. I met
him at the door and he told
me he had just buried Snaz-
zy. He said he had heard the
truck as it tried to stop and
he had seen her body as he
took his young son to the
bus stop.
I was grateful beyond mea-
sure'not to have had to see
her dead. I much prefer to
remember her lively self
and oh-so-expressive face.'
SShe communicated with me
through a series of barks
and the cocking of her head.
Even her name came to me
this way. On our first day
together, I looked at her and
asked her what she thought
I should call her. "You're a
pretty snazzy dog," I said.
Upon hearing the word
snazzy, she cocked her head
and Snazzy she became.
Snazzy loved sleeping, rid-
ing in the car, and eating
above all else, but was quick
to come give me hand kisses
and cheerful barks of af-
fection. She tolerated and
ultimately, liked the addi-
tion of BradPittBull to our
household. She suddenly
had a playmate and life was
more exciting and less lone-
ly when I had to leave the
house without her.
It's been a few days now and


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20,2008


ETwo large projects


move forward


LEAH STRATMANN


I'm better, but still feel a
huge sense of loss. BradPitt-
Bull is severely depressed.
He doesn't want to eat or
go outside. I'm a bit worried
about him. I thinkhe saw the
accident. He has been sleep-
ing in all the places Snazzy
once did, which were not his
places. He is clinging to me
even more than usual.
Anyone who thinks animals
don't have/feelings has nev-
er lived with them. When
we went to bed the night
Snazzy died, BradPittBull
jumped in beside me as usu-
al. As I lay,on my side, this
gentle giant of a dog laid his
head right on the side of my
head and put his two front
paws around my shoulders
for a few seconds in a very
good approximation of a ca-
nine hug. I took enormous
comfort in that. Snazzy the
beautiful beagle-- January
2005 to November 2008, rest
in peace.


By LEAH STRATMANN
The final two items on
last week's planning com-
mission agenda concerned
large development projects
and the commission unani-
mously approved both.
A major development or-
der submitted by Emerald
Coast Associates and called
Topsail Plaza Conceptual
Planned Unit Development
(PUD) sought approval
for the construction of 275
multi-family units with
103,807 square feet of com-
mercial space. The 31.3-acre
parcel has a land, use of vil-
lage mixed use and is locat-
ed at the northeast corner, of
U.S. 98 and CR-30A,.
The final item was ap-
proval for a PUD known as
Town Center at Black Creek.
The side is on the north and


south side of CR-3280 near
the intersection of Magnolia
Lodge Road and consists of
1,051 acres zoned as rural
town center and large-scale
agriculture.
Developer Lloyd Blue ex-
plained the plan calls for an
environmental village con-
cept for the 658 single-fami-
ly lots, 12 multi-family units
and 265,000 square feet of
commercial space. When
complete, there will be 78
protected acres of land with
a bird sanctuary and native
grasses. The developers also
plan on setting aside six
acres for the construction
of a fire department with
emergency services on site.
Blue said the construction
of the big project will also
straighten out a dangerous
six mile stretch of road.

Planning commission approves


new scenic corridor streets


By LEAH STRATMANN
One special item and two
legislative items preceded
the quasi-judicial items at
last week's meeting of the
planning commission.
The commissioners all
voted favorably to approve a
development agreement be-
tween Walton County and
th, Boys and Girls Club of
the Emerald Coa-t regard-
ing' of approximately '30"'
acres designed on the future
land use map as "Town Cen-
ter One." The development
will include up to 55,000
square feet of youth recre-
ational, educational, and
community support center,
and up to 10,000 square feet
of pool and'pool deck area.
The club will share park-
ing with the Coastal Branch
Library and share a joint
storm 'water facility with
adjoining properties.
An ordinance amend-
ing the county's land de-
velopment code (LDC) to
add Churchill Bayou Road,
Chat Holly Road, and South
Church Street to the CR-30A
Scenic Corridor was brought
before the commissioners.
Commissioner Tom Pat-
ton asked, "Why do we want
to do this? I'm all for it if is
does us some good, but does
it?"
Commissioner Randy Gar-
dener noted he had not seen
any public comments and
said, "Chat Holley Road
right-of-ways (ROW) are
limited to what is available
to the county. Where did the
request come from to imple,
ment what we have before
us tonight?"
Pat Blackshear, the director
of planning, told the com-
missioners the planning de-
partment had been asked to
add these streets at the last
public hearing. "We were di-
rected to bring these up dur-
ing our next LDC amend-
ment code," she said.
Speaking as a citizen, local
attorney Lloyd Blue said, "I
own what was formerly the
3Thirtyl Caf6 and we closed
the restaurant to make it
an, attractive addition to the
area. I was surprised to find
the roofs on this building
(South Walton Courthouse
Annex), the library and the
Chamber of Commerce, do
not meet the color scheme
for the U.S. 331 corridor.
When you look at Chat Hol-
ley, you have nurseries and
all number of things. Scenic
30A guidelines were de-
signed so you could see the 1
Gulf of Mexico. I think we
have to stop adding regula-
tions to do it. I didn't think
CR-393 should have been

98 standards before the horse was out of the bar, you
wouldn't have ugly buildings on U.S. 98. There is proba-
bly a better way to write this. I personally think it is a step
in the right direction and it only applies to commercial.

adldedto the' corridor. To
throw Chat Holley in there
with its historic problems of
ROW is not a good idea. We
should instead concentrate
on paving it."
Real estate agent David
Kramer said, "Just because
you live on a dirt road, it
doesn't mean it can't be des-
ignated as. scenic. Scenic
status will regulate some
signage. If this was going
to cost money, I would say
spend it on pavement. It
is more government and it
probably has more negatives
than positives. I remove my
remarks for support unless
it exempts residential struc-
tures from the guidelines."
Bill Bard noted, "This is a
red-letter day because I to-
tally agree with Mr. Kramer.
I was the one who brought it
up and I think a lot of good
things go with Scenic 30A
guidelines. It is going to
become a large traffic area
and with the growth that is
going to happen, now is the
time to put the guidelines in
place."
Blackshear said she agreed.
"I think Chat Holley will
become an important road-
way."
Anita Page said, "The 30A
standards are less com-
prehensive. If the idea is
to put some kind of control
on things like signage, it is
hard to decide what applies
and what doesn't. It would
be easier to understand
and digest it if were a set of
stand-alone scenic corridor
standards."
Commissioner Gardner
said, "If you start to take
side roads as corridors, the
impact is far greater than
you may think. In my opin-
ion, some time in the fu-
ture there may be a need
for these streets. You got
to have vision. If everybody
can see the future, you are
too late. I don't feel the
time is right for these three
streets. I speak for the peo-
ple who are not here tonight.
I don't think a lot of people
who don't understand it are
here tonight. Now is not the
time," he said. "If we had
had the forethought to in-
troduce Scenic 98 standards


before the horse was out of
the barn, you wouldn't have
ugly buildings on U.S. 98.
There is probably a better
way to write this. I person-
ally think it is a step in the
right direction and it only
applies to commercial. I
make a motion to agree to
accept it conceptually with
the understanding that staff
would restate and clarify
the ordinance sometime in
the next 12 months."
Commissioner Tom Ter-
rell commented, "I don't
have a dog in this fight, but
it seems to me like we are
starting to eat a big hunk of
cheese and we keep nibbling
away and adding other ar-
eas of bureaucracy. We can't
just keep throwing bits and
pieces into it. I see no neces-
sity for adding these streets
into the Scenic 30A package.
How can we approve it and
give it teeth when we don't
know which tooth we are go-
ing to pull out?"
Commissioner Susan Horn
said, "I can be convinced
either way on this. If we
do vote to move it forward,
I would like to see the lan-
guage cleaned up so it .is"
straightforward."
Terrell said, "Instead of tak-
ing a vote why don't we ta-
ble this until a time certain
when they can bring it back
to us?"
"I would like to move for-
ward with the understand-
ing we will approve it down
' the line. With the EAR hang-
ing over them, it might be a
year before we see it again,"
Patton said.
County attorney W.C. Hen-
ry noted, "If this body ap-
proves, it goes to BCC with
your recommendation. It
has no teeth until the BCC
approves."
Gardner said, "There is
concurrence that it needs
to be written and if that is
the case, there is no need to
go forward." Terrell said he
agreed with Gardner and
suggested the matter be ta-
bled.
Patton stood firm with his
motion saying, "The sooner
you put it into place, the
better off we are."

struction of the larger rest-

Inlet Beach resident Anna
Hamer said the neighbor-
hood is opposed to a larger
facility. "It is close to 2,000
square feet of scrub that will
be disturbed. We just think
that is way too much. Inlet
Beach is the largest park the
TDC operates, but it is not
the busiest. When the area
was built, we were told we


needed 100 parking spaces
because of future growth.
On the busiest days, like
the Fourth of July, there are
maybe 10 cars in the lot. We
have alternative ideas for
construction. We don't think
as much land needs to be de-
stroyed. There is $250,000
budgeted for this project.
There is enough cleared
land beyond the parking pad
to construct a smaller bath-
room. There is no reason to

People come to Inlet Beach
for the quiet and the dunes.
These .people don't want to

Hamer noted volunteers
have drawn up alternative
plans for restroom facilities
to meet the needs of visi-
tors, as well as complying
with ADA code for the hand-
icapped. "The other idea


we had was for the TDC to
sponsor a design contest for
this bathroom that would
involve the community and
help promote the area at the
same time," she said.
"The other thing I would
like to see happen is for the
TDC to submit a new man-
agement plan to the Bu-
reau of Land Management
(BLM). Phase III of the park
calls for the installation
of grills and picnic tables
and we are opposed to that.
Cooking and more garbage
is not going to help the park.
It is outdated. There is no


A motion for approval by Pridgen carried unanimously.
Request by Mike Burke, county legal counsel, for au-
thorization to seek an injunction to halt operations at the
Thomas Hicks Borrow Pit, due to the exhaustion of county
code enforcement efforts to obtain compliance by the prop-
erty owner with county code provisions.
A motion for approval by Pridgen carried unanimously.
Proposal and motion by Pridgen to proceed with an ap-
praisal of the Natural Bridge property with the goal of ac-
quisition of the property for preservation and public use.
The motion was approved unanimously.
Request by Silver Sands DRI for development order
amendment to extend phase, build out and termination
dates by three years, with no increase in development or-
der entitlements and any additional future proposals for
additional development on the property to be considered by
the BCC in public session.
A motion for approval by Meadows carried unanimous-

a 285-foot tower and reconstruction of a replacement tower
on a separate parcel located behind the hospital on Goldsby
Road north of U.S. 98.
A motion for approval by Comander carried unanimous-
ly.
Among items approved by unanimous tote in the con-

reason to spend extra mon-
ey. Our bottom line is that
it is not about our neighbor-
hood, it is about preserving
the park."
Sell said the committee
did look at building the fa-
cility closer to the road, but
noted they have to meet
county setback require-
ments.
Board member Ken Gif-
ford said, "You said there
are 16 acres left. I think
the percentage of land that
will be taken is very minor.
There is building every-
where around it and there
is no beach access. Access
is going to get tighter and
tighter around the area. I
think Inlet Beach can really
serve the community. I'm in
favor of moving ahead with
this."
Inlet Beach Betty Lecher
said, "Just look at what we
are talking about. We really
would like to see restrooms
right at Orange Street be-
fore you make a final deci-
sion."
Board member Don Mc-
Quade noted, "A lot has
gone on to get us to where
we are. I don't think we,
as an organization, should
push something the commu-
nity doesn't want. The tradi-
tional large restroom is not
our only choice. The design
options they presented this
morning put some interest-
ing alternatives on the table.
The optional designs pres-
ent some things to consider.
Family-accessible restrooms
are a big thing and it needs
to be looked at. I liked the
rustic look of the designs
submitted and they blend
in with the area around it. I
think we ought to send this
back to the beach manage-
ment committee since it is-
obvious the community does
not want it. I don't think we
should be at a crossroads.
A little more delay isn't the
worst thing in the world," he
concluded.
Board member Mary
Brown noted, "The bath-
room design is part of the


PAGE 3-C
branding of the 'Beaches of
South Walton' and we don't
want to lose thgt."
Hamer countered saying,
"A braiding design does not
work in this neighborhood.
It is important for people to
realize the TDC can be open
minded."
McQuade agreed, re-
minding the Council of the
sign debacle and made a
motion to toss out the plans
for a big bathroom and send
the issue back to committee.
The motion was passed by
all.
The other action items
passed included sending 10
of the big blue signs to the
Waltdn County Fire Dis-
trict and one to the Walton
County Emergency Opera-
tions Center where they will
be reworked for use by those
agencies, as well as inves-
tigating the replacement of
white retail signs along U.S.
98 and U.S. 331 with the ex-
cess TDC wayfinding signs
and come back to the council
when a plan is developed.
Jennifer Steel Saunders
was nominated fill a vacancy
on the board for a four-year
term. The Council approved
and her name will be given
to the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) for approval. Also
the term of Ken Gifford was
extended for an additional
four years.

est challenges for a private-
ly-funded conservation area,
Aresco told the gathering.
He said all staff members
must be cross-trained to do
a variety of jobs.
The need for patience is
one of the greatest challeng-
,es, he noted. "You have to be
patient and just realize that
this is a 200- to 300-year
project," he explained, call-
ing Nokuse's efforts "laying
groundwork for future gen-
erations."
The E.O. Wilson Biophil-
ia Center, a multi-million-
dollar educational facility
for children, is under con-
struction on Nokuse Plan-
tation, preparing for local
students to use the property
as a learning resource. A
grand opening for the facil-
ity is scheduled for Septem-
ber 2009.
The public may currently

Aresco added, by hiking the

FREEDOM CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


Terrorism (USA PATRIOT
ACT) Act of 2001 and the re-
authorization in 2006.
History is filled with na-
tions losing personal rights
and freedoms in the name of
security and fear. One of the
largest comparisons drawn
is the similarity between
the U.S. following 9/11 and
the frenzied -decomposi-
tion of the German govern-
ment in the 1920s and early
1930s. Rights were flitted
away slowly until the boil-
ing point was reached and
it was too late to change the
course of fate or freedom.
Those who are not histo-
ry majors believe that Nazi
Germany was spawned
simply as the drive for pure
dictatorship and world
domination, when in fact
it was economics and 'fear-
mongering' that started the
wheels in motion away from
democracy two issues that
Americans have become
well-acquainted with in the
last seven years.
In 1933, the seat of Ger-
man government, the Reich,
stag, was burned by Nazis,
but successfully blamed on
the communists. This. start-
ed a frenzy of widespread
fear and unrest throughout
Germany. This fear helped
to usher in the Enabling Act,
pushed by a much softer-
spoken Chancellor Adolph
Hitler, at the time. The' act
was officially called "The
Law for removing the dis-
tress of the people and the
-Reich" and was underscored
by a fierce wave of national
"patriotism." All of those
who opposed the law were
overshadowed by the call
for resolution of order. The
Nazis rose to power as the
true force behind an under-
ground movement of terror
and destabilization in order
to make citizens of Germany
believe the law was neces-
sary to restore order and
safety.
After the burrung of the
Reichstag, but before the
new laws. were ',passed,
President Hindenburg and
Hitler suspended all civil
liberties by invoking Article
48 of the Weimar Constitu-
tion, under the guise of a na-
tional emergency. Included
in those rights revoked were
Sthe right to privacy of postal
mail and 'all other forms of
communications, protection
against unlawful searches
and seizures, and right of
assembly and association.
Hitler said he need the En-
abling Act to restore order,
end unemployment and pro-
mote peace throughout Eu-
rope.
In 2004, historian Brian
Cloughley described the
similarities between Ger-
many and America for
Counterpunch. "The paral-
lels with .1930s Germany
are ominous ... It is far from
irrelevant that Hitler was
appointed Germany's Chan-
cellor, in legal accord with
the Weimar Constitution,
by President Hindenburg
in 1933, just as Bush was
appointed president of the
United States by the Su-
preme Court in December
2000. The U.S. Patriot Act
restricts personal liberty
'beyond the legal limits oth-
erwise prescribed.' Every
provision of the 1933 Protec-
tion of Nation and State De-
cree, save that of speech and
press freedom, is mirrored
in the Patriot Act which per-
mits investigators, without
having to show 'probable
cause,' to obtain a subpoena
to search anyone's personal
details held by their library,
bank, credit card and insur-
ance companies 'in fact by
any organization or institu-
tion that keeps records.'"
Cloughley also stated,
"The Senate and House ap-
proved colossal extensions
of state control without
any debate of consequence
on the dangers to ordinary


people posed by this modern
version of the 'Decree for
the Protection of Nation and
State.' Only a tiny number
of citizens have the remotest
notion of the Act's contents,
because it is the intention of
state-control freaks to avoid
explanation and to repeat
endlessly the mantras that
'The Patriot Act defends our
liberty'; 'It's essential law';


'It's a law that is making
America safer'; 'It doesn't
make any sense to scale
it back,' all of which were
comforting slogans were ut-
tered by Bush in the Choco-
late Ballroom in Hershey,
Pennsylvania, on April 20,
2004."
What happens to those
who dissent? Cloughley ex-
plained, "If an American
dares criticize the president
in vehement terms, aind
that fact is recorded in the
minutes of a private meet-
ing, then the FBI can place
such information on a citi-
zen's action file. The citizen
will never know about this,
because the FBI's subpoe-
na cannot be challenged in
court and the target, the
victim,, to put it bluntly, is
legally kept in ignorance
about its ever being served.
How's that for a slam dunk
against civil liberties?"
That's what happened
to those that opposed Hit-
ler and Nazi party regard-
ing the Enabling Act. Over
44,000 members of the op-
position were identified and
arrested, most were never
seen again. They were ei-
ther shot in the street to
frighten dissenters or taken
to prisons. This was before
Hitler began the annihila-
tion of Jewish citizens.
What has happened in
America since 9/11 and in-
stitution of the Patriot Act?
Thousands have been taken,
from the U.S and around the
world, without warrants,
held without due process,
not allowed legal represen-
tation and with no trace of
where they are -now held.
Most would guess Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba or Abu
Ghraib in Iraq. According to
multiple published sources,
"The government asserts
they are not prisoners of
war but enemy combatants
and therefore not entitled
to 'protection froin interro-
gation guaranteed by the
Geneva Convention. They
are interrogated up to 16
hours a day. Nor, since they
are not on U.S. soil, are they
entitled to U.S. legal protec-
tions such as the right to
counsel, presumption of in-
nocence, and a trial by jury.
None has been charged with
a crime. The government
plans to try them by military
tribunal, and some could be
sentenced to death."
There is actually no way
of knowing how many have
been taken since, while citi-
zens are stripped of their
rights, the executive branch
has extended theirs and now
does not have to produce
documentation about how
many American citizens are
being held. Claiming that
executive privilege over-
rides all the Constitutional
rights of American citizens,
proponents of the Patriot
Act have oblierated trans,
parency in government and
have allowed government to
operate in almost total se-
crecy.
Others have compared
multiple statements from
Hitler and his supporters
with President Bush and


his administration. For in-
stance, in the following two
statements, is it possible to
identify the authors?
"To those who scare
peace-loving people with
phantoms of lost liberty, my
message is this: your tactics
only aid terrorists, for they
erode our national unity and
diminish our resolve."
"The people can always
be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All
you have to do is tell them
they are being attacked and
denounce the pacifists for
lack of patriotism and ex-
posing the country to dan-
ger. It works the same way
in any country."
The first statement is.
from U.S. Attorney General
John Ashcroft, defending
the Patriot Act and explain-
ing why dissent will no lon-
ger be tolerated in the age
of terrorism. The second
statement is,by Nazi Reich-
marshall Hermann Goering,
commander of the Luftwaffe,
explaining at his war crimes
trial how easily he and his
fellow Nazis hijacked ;Ger-
many's democratic govern-
ment.
The German Enabling
Act of 1933 also draws other
comparisons from history
buffs. Both acts passed with
almost the same margin.
The Patriot Act passed in the
.House 357-56. The Enabling
act passed 441-84. Both had
a five-year sunset provision
to make it more palatable. In
both cases, wealthy indus-
trialist who feared the loss
of their fortunes to socialism
first backed the Nazi party,
just as they later backed the
Bush administration.
Most people are surprised
to learn that the majority of
the laws contained in the
Patriot Act were part of an
original document penned
in 1999. They were based on
a report by the bi-partisan
Hart-Rudman Commission
on National Security/21st
Century. This report called
'for the need of the U.S'."to
protect its investments in
the Middle East, even at the
expense of armed conflict or
war. Previous attempts to
curtail constitutional rights
were shot down without the
push that a post-9/11 world
gave to the Bush adminis-
tration.
In their book, "Terrorism
& the Constitution: Sacri-
ficing Civil Liberties in the
Name of National Security,"
James X. Dempsey and Da-
vid Cole wrote that the most
troubling provisions of the
pre-USAPA anti-terrorism
laws, enacted in 1996 and
expanded now by the USA-
PA, "were developed long
before the bombings that
triggered their final enact-
ment."
Dempsey and Cole trace
the origins of the national
security trend back to the
"intolerant approaches of
,the 1950s," when associa-
tion with communist or an-
archist groups was made a
ground for exclusion and
deportation. Congress re-
moved the guilt by associa-
tion law in 1990, but it was


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20,2008


revived only six years later
by law enforcement propo-
nents in the 1996 Antiter-
rorism Act, immediately fol-
lowing the Oklahoma City
bombing. More specifically,
Dempsey and Cole show
that it was the Reagan ad-
ministration that initially
proposed some of the most
troubling provisions, which
eventually became part of
the USAPA. When Reagan
proposed these provisions,
Congress rejected them on
constitutional grounds. The
George H.W. Bush admin-
istration then made similar
proposals, which were again
rejected by lawmakers. Con-
gress twice refused to enact
the secret evidence provi-
sions proposed by G. H. W.
Bush. (In fact, just prior to
9/11, Congress was about
to pass a law repealing the
secret evidence provisions
of the 1996 Antiterrorism
Act.)
The other similarities be-
tween the two Acts are that
they were both only to be
used as needed, promised to
be rescinded after the 'emer-
gency was over,' and were
not to be used against law-
abiding citizens or pacifist
groups. Overall, the similar-
ity between the two Acts are
startling. Most Americans
will ask, "If they are the
bad guys, shouldn't we do
everything possible to get
them?" An therein lies the*
rub. It's being used against
citizens.i A New York Times
article (Nov. 2008) states
"But a new Justice Depart-
ment report, given to mem-
bers of Congress this month,
also cites more than a dozen
cases that are not directly
related to terrorism in which
federal authorities have
used their expanded power
to investigate individuals,
initiate wiretaps and other
surveillance, or seize mil-
lions in tainted assets." All
of these individuals were
U.S citizens.
Even with the startling
revelation that the Senate
and Congress were not al-
lowed to read the original
Patriot Act before a vote,
fhle ciafting of'i bill' draft-
in 2003 'by former Attor-
ney General John Ashcroft,
dubbed the Patriot Act II,
was derailed when the doc-
ument was leaked to the
press. By this time, Ameri-
cans and their representa-
tives were starting to wake
up and realize that their
..liberty was at stake. The
attempt to circumvent even
more judicial oversight and
transfer unchecked power to
the executive branch of the
government fell short and
was shelved.
The Washington Post
wrote in 2006, "Legislation
drafted by Justice Depart-
ment lawyers in 2003 to
strengthen the.USA Patriot
Act would have provided le-
gal backing for several as-
pects of the administration's
warrantless eavesdropping
program. Most lawmak-
ers and the public were
not aware at the time that
President Bush had already
issued a secret order allow-
ing the National Security
Agency to intercept inter-
national calls involving U.S.
citizens and legal residents.
Critics of the NSA program
said the draft legislation
raises questions about the
administration's insistence
that Bush already had clear
legal authority to order war-
rantless domestic spying in
late 2001 and had no need
to go to Congress for explicit
approval.
'"It's rather damning to
their current view that they
didn't need legislation," said
Timothy H. Edgar, a na-
tional security lawyer at the
American Civil Liberties
Union. "Clearly, the lawyers
at the Justice Department,
or some of them, felt that


legislation was needed to
allow the government to do
what it was doing."
With the reauthorization
of the original Patriot Act
in 2006, some changes were
made to attempt to protect
innocent American citizens
from domestic spying. The
ACLU led the charge and
released the following state-
ment in 2006, "We're obvi-
ously disappointed with to-
day's vote to reauthorize the
Patriot Act without common
sense reforms to ensure that
anti-terrorism resources are

A MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTRY OF HOM AND SECURITY


focused on agents of al Qae-
da, and not used to invade
the private financial, medi-
cal, library and Internet re-
cords of ordinary Americans..
We applaud the valiant ef-
forts of Senators Feingold
and others to include truly
effective civil liberties safe-
guards. Notably, Senators
Feingold, Tom Harkin (D-
IA), Jim Jeffords (I-VT),
and the dean of the Senate,
Robert Byrd (D-WV), voted
against final passage.
"And in recent days, Sen-
ator Durbin (D-IL), Judi-
ciary Committee Chairman
Specter (R-PA), and Con-
gresswomari Jane Harman
and others, have reiterated
the need to reform the law
to, better protect civil liber-
ties, regardless of the vote's
outcome.
"We will continue to
press for needed reforms to
protect American freedoms.
But we're sadly aware that
in some ways "the debate
over reform may itself be
completely moot. Until the
Bush administration stops
the illegal NSA program to
spy on Americans, and stops
ignoring the rule of law, any
reforms to the Patriot Act
may simply .go unheeded
under the extreme view of
unlimited power embraced
by this president.
"Congress must restore
the rule of law and insist
that Americans' rights be
protected. Our great nation
can, and must, be both safe
and free.
"Together with our allies
on the right and the left,
we have made tremendous
progress over the past four
years. The Bush adminis-
tration had sought a repeat
of 2001, when the Patriot
Act was passed quickly with
little debate and only a few
courageous dissenters. But
the national debate over
the secret search powers
expanded by the Patriot Act
has come a long way.
"Our efforts achieved
a legislative impact that
many, if not most, people
thought was impossible. A
bipartisan group of 52 Sena-
tors was willing to stand up
to the administration and
filibuster the bill last year.
And we saw an exponential.
increase in the number of
members of .Congress will-
ing to stand against the bill
until it is reformed to fully
protect fundamental Ameri-
can values.
"More than ever before,
we need the support of con-
scientious Americans to
help us continue to fight. We
need a special prosecutor to
investigate the NSA spying.
We need to hold Congress's
feet to the fire. on hearings.
And, once we've done that,
we need to truly reform the
Patriot Act, so that our civil
liberties are protected and
the law's provisions lie with-
in the bounds of the Consti-
tution."
Government officials will
argue that law-abiding citi-
zens have nothing to fear,
yet the government now has
no oversight and is no longer
accountable to its citizens.
No American would argue
that increased security in
these troubled times we


face is a bad idea. Howev-
er, citizens should wake up
and take notice of the fact
that permanent intrusion
on American citizens' every
movement, without judicial
oversight or the ability to
.have legal representation,
has taken place.
Fortunately, many citi-
zens are aware of these
transgressions by the gov-
ernment against its own peo-
ple. In fact, over 414 local,
county and state resolutions
in the U.S. have renounced
the Patriot Act, with 275
currently under consider-
ation. If that isn't enough to
.get one thinking, consider
this poem by German Pas-
tor Martin Niem6ller.

When the Nazis came for
the communists,
I remained silent; I was
not a communist.
When they locked up the
social democrats,
S''I remaihdd'-~ileht; 'Wi '
not a social democrat:.
When they dcme for the
trade unionists,
I did not speak out; I was
not a trade unionist.
When they came for the
Jews,
I remained silent; I was
not a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to
speak out.

Next week: How are you
being watched? Let us count
the ways.






Accident

leaves two

teens

injured

An accident on Nov. 13 on
U.S. 98 left two Santa Rosa
Beach teens injured.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Destiny K.
Hulsey, 17, was driving a
1992 four-door Toyota, with
passenger Lindsay Claus-
en, 15; both of Santa Rosa
Beach.
Hulsey was waiting to
make a U-turn from west-
bound U.S. 98 into the
eastbound lanes. A 2006
Hyundai, driven by Jared
D. Vause, 25, and passen-
ger Merinda D. Vause, 23,
of Chipley, was traveling
east on U.S. 98. Apparently,
Hulsey pulled out in front
of Vause's Hyundai. The
Hyundai struck the left side
of Hulsey's Toyota, sending
it into a utility pole on the
eastbound shoulder of the
road.
Hulsey suffered seri-
ous injuries and was taken,
Sto Sacred Heart Hospital
in Santa Rosa Beach. Pas-
senger Lindsay Clausen
sustained minor injuries.
Neither Jared or Merinda
Vause were injured. Alcohol
was not a factor in the crash
and all were wearing seat-
belts. .Charges are pending.










PAGE 5-C


Just when you think
that people are enjoying
a pretty day on the
Emerald Coast, having all
their family and friends
gathered, it happens
again. Authorities make
an. appearance and
disrupt another event.

No, I am not referring to
a high school party that is
busted, or an all-night
"kegger" taking place on a
dirt road outside the city
limits, but events that have
been advertised, permitted
and organized for the
entire family. It is an issue
that again has risen its
ugly head and .is making
many businesses,' locals
and tourists furious and
eventually may turn
thousands of tourists away
from our community.
This past weekend, two
events that I know of were
disrupted or shut down by
the Walton County Sheriffs
Department, after receiving
"alleged" complaints. The
department is only doing
their job, but it is a job a
few officers and the code
enforcement has been
taking some very drastic
measures on and have had
several confrontations.
The first incident
happened at the home in
Grayton Beach. It is a
property that is advertised
and designed for weddings
and reunions beautiful
rental property that
includes a pool, hot tub,
sleeping for nearly 20, a
pavilion, lush gardens and
parking for at least 15
vehicles. It is marketed to
brides that want to have
their weddings here in
Walton County.
Besides a hefty price tag
to rent the facility for a
weekend stay and event,
the wedding party spends
thousands of dollars on
catering, flowers, rentals,
photographers and other
vendors to help make their
special day. But due to a
mysterious call from a
nearby resident, this poor
bride's wedding fantasy got
shut down, just 30 minutes
after it got started.
The bride and family
who had gathered from
Atlanta, Orlando, Memphis
and Miami, had to move
the reception inside. the
home, due to a Walton
County Sheriffs deputy
stopping by and telling
them they had a complaint
and had to move it inside,

or disband. The officer
further told them that no
weddings or events were to
be held at this residence.
Besides cramming her
more than 60 quests into
the home, all of her rentals,.
food, and decorations had
to be rushed in and thrown
together after it had taken
hours to set up ,and cost the
bride hundreds in delivery
and set-up charges by the
vendors.

She said she would have
understood having to shut
it down at 10 p.m. which is
the county rule for outdoor
events, but not at 5:30 p.m.
This home is also within
just a block of one of the
Walton County establish-
ments that closed its doors
earlier this year due to the
fact that they could not
have music for their guests
on their own patio.
Needless to say, this
bride and her family are
getting an attorney and
said she would never
return to this area again.
She was also logging all of
her friends that had made
plans to marry here or
vacation here, .to find
another hot spot because
this county was not ready
for tourism.
That story also made
front page headlines and
was splashed, across state
and local television
channels. Can we, as a
county, afford to have this
type of bad press during
these tough economic times
when vacation rentals and
tourism is at an all-time
low? Can we afford to turn
our back on tourism dollars
and especially those dollars
that come from wedding
parties, .that pay so many
businesses for their
services for their special
day?
The second situation
arose at the Canine
Festival this past-weekend
at Gulf Place, when I saw
an officer talking to a dog
owner about not having
their canine on a leash. It
was a great day for the


entire family to enjoy being
outside, learning about
their pets and how to train
them, and get a chance to
adopt a pet from shelters
here in the county.
'But this story ended a
bit different. When I looked
back 'over to the person
with her small tea cup
poodle in her hand,
pointing her finger in the
officer's face and telling
him that they dogs were
.allowed to be here and not
required to be on a leash
when they were competing
in various games, it looked
almost like the wild west
and the officer went down
in defeat.
All of these "situations"
have seemed to explode
since the 2008 Seabreeze
Jazz Festival made front-
page news .for their
apparent noise and traffic
violations while at Gulf
Place. The county code
enforcement acted on a 30-
year-old code that made it
nearly impossible to have a
music event in this county,
and; thus played a+ crucial,
part in the'biggest ticketed
event in the county to now
'call its new home Pier Park
in Bay County.

Many say that the
WSBZ. Seabreeze 'Jazz
Festival was just one event
that the county has lost,
'but due to other reasons,
the Cultural Arts
Association's Flutterby
Festival, the Coastal Wine
Tour and numerous other
events have had to
temporarily pull the plug,,
due to the economy. But it
is the Ihundreds of
weddings that have begun
to add up and make a
serious dent in our tourism
budget. At any given- time
during the peak wedding
season months, (March-
October) there can be 5-15
weddings takings place up
and down CR-30A in
Walton County.
These wedding parties
pay the county and its
numerous caterers, tent
rental companies, florists,


wedding coordinators,
photographers, musicians,
cake makers and rental
properties, hundreds of
thousands of dollars yearly.
This does not include the
hundreds of jobs that these


service industries provide
for residents.

Remember, we do not
have major corporations or
m a nu fa c t u r e r s
headquartered here and we
rely solely on tourism
dollars to keep us afloat,
just like the rest of the
state of Florida,.
Over : the past few
months, many in the
service industry have
become disgruntled and
angered with the county,
their codes and the actions
they have taken. It is also
rumored that these same
businesses are planning on
confronting city and county
officials with a force of
more than 1,000 in this
particular group of
businesses.
Not only is the service
industry in Walton County
in an uproar, but many of
these wedding coor-
dinators, event planners,
and service industry
leaders are packing their
bags and making the move
out of Walton County. They
say that the grass really is
greener on the other side
and have less headaches
when it comes to doing
business.
SMany are saying that
change is needed.
immediately when it comes
to code enforcement and it
is time that the county and
city governments sit down
and come to an agreement
on how to handle the ever-
growing and ever-depleting
Walton County event
business. It has already
been said around the South
that we discourage
weddings and other events
from coming here, and we
have to decide whether or
not we can afford to loose
their business which
means more lost jobs,
higher unemployment and
the knowledge that. our
neighboring counties are
taking millions of dollars
out of our county tourism
bucket.
Get ready Walton
County, it looks like the
battle lines has already
been drawn and soldiers
are ready to head 'into
battle.

Golf and Beach Club. The
women-only event, unique
for its multiple activities,
was a tremendous success'
with more than 160 women
participating and raising
more than $15,000 that will
be used towards scholar-
ships for women that attend
Northwest Florida' State
College.

west Florida State College
Foundation and a volunteer
committee led by Sandy
Sims of Gulf Power, Lori
Kelley of O'Sullivan Creel

speaker, Burton addressed
themes in her latest book,
"How Did I Get So Busy?"

ters most.
Burton inspired the crowd
with her energetic positive-

own path to personal and
professional fulfillment.
"This event was a great
opportunity for informal
camaraderie and network-
ing while helping ,to raise
funds for NWF .State,. Col-
lege women's programs,"
said Lori Kelley, president
of the NWFSC Foundation

More than 250 sustainers


re-enlist at Joint Base Balad


Service members from
across Iraq gathered in
Joint Base Balad, to re-en-
list and commemorate Vet-
eran's Day. No less than 285
soldiers and airmen from
the 3d Sustainment Com-
mand (Expeditionary) and
Joint Base Balad raised
their right hand and recited
the oath of enlistment with
Brig. Gen. Michael J. Lally,
the 3d ESC's commanding
general, presiding over the


mass re-enlistment.
One of those raising their
hand Tuesday was Staff Sgt.
Jason Bass, a Niceville, FL.,
resident. Staff Sgt. Bass
has served 13 years in the
Army.
"For 233 years, the men
and women of the U.S.
armed forces have raised
their hands and spoken the
words these heroes in front
of you will speak today,"
Lally said. "For our nation


to be successful for us to
sustain our freedoms we
must be willing to serve."
Concluding Lally's
speech, the formation of ser-
vice members raised their
right hands and swore in -
once again.

The Veterans Day event
was designed to both re-
member those who have
served or are serving and to
sustain a quality, all-volun-


teer 3d ESC team.
SAccumulatively, service
members pledged more than
1,500 years of additional
service to their country.
The service members origi-
nated from over 34 differ-
ent Sstates and 13 different
brigades, all under the 3d
ESC.

The event was the first-
ever mass re-enlistment at
Joint Base Balad.

mitteq by Dean Burgis, requesting the

ernment lot 175 in the Inlet Beach area

ted roads within 'Plantation Subdivision

ment is in OR Book 203, page 562, over

tions Subdivision, per Plat Book 5, Page

NWF State College nursing




grads ace RN exam


The 37 members of the
'May 2008 graduation class
;of associate degree nursing
students at Northwest Flor-
ida State College all recent-
ly completed the national
examination to be licensed
as registered nurses and the
class posted a 100-percent
passing rate. Nationwide,
nearly 70,000 associate de-
gree nursing graduates take
the exam annually with an
average passing rate of 85
percent. This is the third
time in the six-year history
of the college's nursing pro-
gram, and the second year
in a row, that the nursing
graduates have earned a
100-percent passing rate.
The NWF State College


Associate of Science in nurs-
ing graduates completed a
rigorous two-year program
of study at the college prior
to sitting for the National
Council Licensure Examina-
tion for Registered Nurses
(NCLEX-RN) exam.
According to Charlotte
Kuss, director of Nursing at
NWF State College, entry
into the practice of nursing
in the United States is regu-
lated by licensing authorities
to ensure public protection.
"Candidates for licensure
are required to pass the
exam that measures the
competencies needed to per-
form safely and effectively
as a newly licensed, entry-
level registered nurse," ex-


plained Kuss. The National
Council of State Boards of
Nursing develops the licen-
sure examination which is
used by state boards.
"This 100-passing rate
speaks well of the strength
of our nursing programs
and the competitive nature
of our admissions process,"
said Dr. Jill White, NWF
State College senior vice
president. "We're producing
skilled professionals who
are ready to serve our local
health care community and
the citizens of our state."
The NWF State College
associate degree registered
Nnursing program began
in 2001 as the first health
technology program at the


college and to date has grad-
uated 265 students. Health
instruction programs at the
college also include a Bach-
elor of Science in nursing
program, dental assisting,
radiography, emergency
medical technician (EMT)
and paramedic.
Nursing, radiography
and dental assisting all hold
a once per year admissions
process for students to begin
each fall term. Applications
are currently being accepted
until April 1, 2009.

nursing website at www.

A new musical


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20,2008


- Life before Dorothy


By ASHLEYAMASON
Sure, we love Dorothy and
her little dog, too, but what
exactly do we know about
the Wicked Witch of the
West? Based on the novel by


Gregory Maguire, "Wicked:
A New Musical," now on
Broadway, tells of the life
and times of the witch be-
fore Dorothy dropped in.
The play opens with Gal-


IS SHEA GOOD IT'ITCH or a bad witch? Glinda is more
and less than what she appears to be in "Wicked A New
Musical" currently playing on Broadway. (Photo by Joan
Marcus)


inda, the good witch, pro-
claiming to her fellow Oz-
ians that the Wicked Witch
is dead. Foreshadowing the
story (and hilarity) to follow,
Galinda asks the townsfolk,
"Are people born wicked?
Or do.they have wickedness
thrust. upon them? After all,
she had a father. She had a
mother, as so many do..."
After being accused of be-
friending the Wicked Witch,
Galinda tells the true tale
of the long-despised terror
of the West. Elphaba, the
eldest daughter of a shame-
lessly adulterous mother
and an in-turn unkind fa-
ther, lived only to care
for her wheelchair-ridden
younger sister, Nessarose.
Due to her green skin (a
"deformity" caused by her
biological father) Elphaba
endured endless taunting
and alienation throughout
childhood.
As Elphaba and Nessar-
ose arrive at Shiz, the school
of wonder and wizardry in
Oz, where animals are pro-
fessors, head mistresses
control the weather, and
casting spells is a sacred
study, Elphaba confronts,
her peers' stares with an
angry yet humorous dec-
laration, "Yes, I've always
looked this way, and no, I'm
not seasick!"
While at Shiz, Elpha-
ba first meets Galinda, a
spoiled, albeit loveable, girl
with an infectious laugh and
tendency to mispronounce
words, who believes nothing
more important than popu-
larity. After Galinda and
Elphaba are begrudgingly
paired together as room-
mates, both write home re-
garding their new "friend."
In perfect harmony, the
future witches sing, ...
there's been some confusion
over rooming here at Shiz,
but of course I'll rise above
it for I know that's how
you'd want me to respond.


Yes there's been some con-
fusion, you see my room-
mate is..." The duet ceases
as Galinda proclaims her
roommate "unusually and
exceedingly peculiar and
altogether quite impossible
to describe," then precisely
on beat,' Elphaba grunts
"blonde."
Despite their initial
loathing of one another,
the unlikely pair becomes
friends and Galinda decides
to make Elphaba, or Elphie
as she calls her, popular.
Teaching her about boys,
. shoes, and the perfect way to
toss her hair, Galinda wins
the audience over with her
endearing naivety (Galinda:
"You see Elphie, now that
we're friends, I've decided to
make you my new project."
Elphaba: "You really don't
have to do that." Galinda: "I
know, that's what makes mie
so nice!")
Enlightening Elphaba
on the importance of be-
ing popular, Galinda sings
"Popular" to a standing
ovation:. "Whenever I see
someone less fortunate than
I (and let's face it, who isn't
less fortunate than I), when
I see depressing creatures
with unprepossessing fea-
tures, I remind them on
their own behalf to think of
celebrated heads of state or
especially good communica-
tors. Did they have brains or
knowledge? Don't make me
laugh! They were popular...
like me!"
Although Elphaba's at-
tempts at popularity fail,
she rapidly becomes the
most gifted student of wiz-
ardry at Shiz and the head-
mistress sends her to the
Emerald City to meet (you
guessed. it) the wonderful
Wizard of Oz.
Once arriving in the
S"ozmopolitan," which is
the Emerald City, the plot
takes off in song to explain
the Wizard's fraud and his
mind-boggling true iden-
tity, the mishaps which led
to Elphaba being named the
Wicked Witch, Galinda's
name change to Glinda, and
just where exactly the Tin
Man, Cowardly Lion, and
Scarecrow came from not to
mention the final cliffhang-
er leading into Maguire's se-
quel, "Son of a Witch."
A wicked good time, the
imagination of author Greg-
ory Maguire and composition
of lyricist Stephen Schwartz
combine in this three-time
Tony Award-winning show
to remind us there are two
sides to every story, and
being bad is almost always
more fun than being a goody
two-ruby-red-slippers.

lar.." (Photo by Joan Marcus)


ELPHABA (better known as you-know-who) does riot
much resemble the frightful hag that menaced Dorothy in
"The Wizard of Oz." (Photo by Joan Marcus)


THE BOOK THAT STARTED it all was written by Greg-
ory Maguire and tells the "rest of the story" about the life
and tithes of the Wicked Witch of the West.
