To Tase



or not to



Tase


By ALICIA LEONARD
On February 3, the Amer-
ican Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU) of Florida submit-
ted a petition to the Unit-
ed States Supreme Court
over a 2004 Taser incident
in northwest Florida. The
ACLU is asking the court to
make a ruling on whether
law enforcement officers'
use of excessive force with a
Taser is unconstitutional.
The case occurred in
Washington. County, be-
tween Washington County
Sheriffs Deputy Jonathan
Rackard and citizen Jesse
Buckley. According to court
documents submitted by the
ACLU, "On March 17, 2004,
Mr. Buckley was arrested
after refusing to sign a. traf-
fic citation during a routine
traffic stop. He was hand-
cuffed and voluntarily ex-
ited his vehicle, obviously in
emotional distress, then fell
to the ground. The arresting
officer was under no appar-
ent threat, as documented by
the police car-mounted cam-
era, yet "tased" Mr. B'uckley
three separate times. Each
episode lasted five seconds,
leaving -16 burn marks on
his skin, some severe enough
to produce keloid scars. Al-
though Mr. Buckley never
once actively resisted arrest
nor attempted to flee, the of-
ficer continued to tase him
solely to cause pain."
The ACLU lawsuit
alleges,"the deputy's actions
violate the Fourth Amend-
ment, since his only purpose
was to inflict pain upon an
already-handcuffed arrested


to make him stand up."
The case made its way up
to a federal district court,
which ruled "that the officer
was not entitled to qualified
immunity, but by a split deci-
sion, the 11th Circuit Court
of Appeals panel reversed
that opinion. The 11th Cir-
cuit denied rehearing the
case before the entire Cir-,
cuit Court of Appeals, and
upon denial the petition to
move to the Supreme Court
was made."
Maria Kayman, ACLU of
Florida associate legal di-
rector, made the following
statement on the 11th Cir-
cuit court's decision, "The
Eleventh Circuit's ruling
licenses police officers to
use Tasers as cattle prods
to inflict gratuitous pain on
a nonviolent handcuffed ar-
restee, simply to herd him
towards a police car. The
repeated and excruciatingly
painful application of 50,000
volts of electricity was once
the exclusive province of the
agents and implements of
torture, arid cannot be con-
doned in a civilized society."
The safety of Tasers has
repeatedly been called into
question in the past 10 years.
The law firm of Saiontz, Kirk
and Miles states, "Well over
100 Taser lawsuits have
been filed throughout the
United States on behalf of
individuals who were killed
by a Taser gun or suffered se-
vere personal injury.'Taser
International, which is the
maker of the weapon, has
been named as a defendant
in many of these police bru-
tality lawsuits and wrongful

"Plan for

worst-

case

scenario"
By ASHLEY AMASON
Financial concerns still
loom over the Walton Coun-
ty School Board. Superin-
tendent Anderson relayed
a message from John New-
man of the Department of
Education, to "plan for the
worst-case scenario" where
budget cuts are concerned.
Anderson explained tax col-
lections have been lower
than expected and there
are no indicators of a turn-
around.
Walton County School
Board Attorney Ben Hol-
ley told board members,
regarding the dispute over
the property line between
Hunter's Ridge and the new
Walton High School, the
"surveyor will stand by his
survey as accurate and be
willing to defend it under
any circumstances."
On the action, agenda,
the board unanimously ap-
proved the suspension of
development review fees for
the remainder of the 2008-
2009 fiscal year, and ap-
proved a three-year contract
with Southern Linc to; con-
tinue mobile-phone iuse for
district employees.
Sheriff Michael Adkinson
addfresd the board, voiced
his goal to work closely with
the board to improve the
safety of Walton Courity
students and the coopera-
tion between the school dis-
trict and the Sheriffs office.
Adkinson declared, "We look
forward to working closely
with you. We want to take
an opportunity to work hand
in hand."
Adjourning, the WCSB
set a budget workshop for 3
p.m. on Feb. 17.


DFS Council discuss natural gas bills


By ALICIA LEONARD
Donna Huxhold ap-
proached 'the DeFuniak
Springs City Council with a
request for possible utility
budget billing change, due
to citizens' increased gas
use during winter months.
Huxhold compared the
plan to the budget billing
style that Gulf Power of-
fers their customers, where
one year's worth of billing is
broken down evenly among


a 12-month period allowing
customers to pay a flat fee
every month without much
variance in their bill.
. Huxhold told the Council
that she was representing
the Council on Aging and
that many elderly custom-
ers were having a hard time
paying their winter heating
bills and the budget billing
would be an option for them.
The Council deferred Hux-
hold to DeFuniak Springs


City Finance Director Sara
Bowers.
Bowers responded that
she would be happy to speak
with Huxhold and the topic
had been discussed before,
but that she and other staff
feared the volatility of the
natural gas market prices
would not allow for as much
flexibility in averaging cost
for clients. Further, the un-
certain natural gas prices
could cause some customers


to have to pay back large
amount during the "true-
up" period that comes at the
end of the year when some-
one has underpaid.
Bowers said, "It's that
true-up month that worries
us for our customers. That
can be in the hundreds to
the thousands. I would glad-
ly sit down and discuss this,
but it's the "true-up" month
that makes us feel uncom-
fortable for the customer."


Bowers and Huxholdagreed
to discuss the matter later
and look into the possibility
of letting customers pay ex-
tra when their bills are low
and they would have credit
in those utility accounts
when the bills are higher.

Committee to consider options for D&H Sand


By DOTTY NIST
Over six months after
being found in violation for
operating without a devel-
opment order, D&H Sand
is working toward meeting
Walton County require-
ments in connection with
a development order appli-
cation, although, the busi-
ness's progress in meeting
those requirements was re-
cently described as "a snail's
pace."
Several people at the Feb.
4 Walton County Technical
Review Committee (TRC)
expressed concern about
that slow progress.
In July, the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board found the sand min-


ing operation in violation
for operating without a de-
velopment order. Among
other directives, the board
ordered D&H Sand to ap-
ply for a development order
within 30 days. That board
decision allowed the com-
pany to continue to operate
during the development or-
der application process, as
long as certain conditions
were met. These included
providing a survey of the
existing operation to ensure
that digging would not be
expanded beyond already-
disturbed areas.
On Nov. 10 Walton Coun-
ty Code Enforcement Officer
Kevin Hargett issued a stop-
work order to the business,


based on several alleged vio-
lations, one being that prop-
erty outside the original pit
area had been scraped and
cleared without a permit,
contrary to the board or-
der. After hearing evidence
of alleged violations by the
pit operation on Nov. 20,
the code enforcement board
found D&H Sand in viola-
tion of seven provisions of
the Walton County Land
Development Code. Along
with other fines, a $250-a-
day fine was imposed, be-
ginning with Nov. 10, the
day the stop-work order was
issued, and to continue until
the business ceased opera-
tion or otherwise achieved
compliance with that order.


D&H Sand appealed that
board decision by filing a
lawsuit on Jan. 5 in Walton
County's First Judicial Cir-
cuit. The case is pending,
with no trial date having
been set at this time.
The business has contin-
ued to work with the mem-
bers of the TRC toward
obtaining a development
order. A preservation plan
required, by the county has
been a large part of that
work. The TRC is composed
mainly of Walton County
Planning and Development
Services staff members.
On Feb. 4, Dean Burgis,
an engineer representing
D&H Sand, reported that
the company's proposed


preservation plan had been
adjusted after meetings on
site with county environ-
mental planners. He added
that D&H had recently
hired a geotechnical engi-
neer, who would be provid-
ing additional data in con-
nection with the company's
application.
TRC members at the Feb.
4 meeting commented that
the site plan that had been
submitted by D&H is not ad-
equate for them to be able to
judge if the county's preser-
vation requirements are be-
ing met. An additional sub-
mittal would be required,
they noted.

DBPA hosts Kirby,


Dees on city signage


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12,2009
. . . . . . . . . .. . .
ih ,-* *i.*;
-. *.--


By RON KELLEY
The DeFuniak Business
and Professional Associa-
tion (DBPA) held its an-
nual meeting last week and
elected its officers and board
members.
DBPA President Sara
Comander, at the vocal be-
hest of the DBPA board,
accepted another term as
president. Comander noted
that while the DBPA does
sponsor and present three
major events annually, it is
also involved in other proj-
ects, too. "The DBPA advo-
cates on behalf of the entire
DeFuniak Springs business
community," she said.
One issue of concern to
local businesses is the city's
sign ordinance, which is
scheduled to be revised soon.
Comander asked DeFuniak
Springs City Manager Kim
Kirby and local radio sta-
tion owner Art Dees to
come to the annual meeting
and discuss the proposed
amendments to the sign or-
dinance.
Kirby said she was basi-
cally there to listen to the
DBPA business members'
concerns. Numerous busi-
ness owners and manag-
ers spoke about problems
they had experienced and
questioned the DeFuniak
Springs City Council's plan
to further restrict business-
es regarding the size and
placement of their signs.
. One member noted that
the latest recommendations
from city staff regarding
changes' to the sign ordi-
nance all had one thing in
common without -excep-
tion, in each recommenda-
tion, the size, number or
placement of business signs
was reduced. Several DBPA
members questioned why
the city council would delib-
erately make it harder for
local businesses to thrive,


especially in light of the cur-
rent business and financial
crisis. Many Florida compa-
nies are filing bankruptcy
and laying off workers and
small businesses are. simply
going out of business. DBPA
members also asked what
the councilmen were afraid
of and why they felt it nec-
essary to impose even more
restrictions on what is per-
ceived as an already oppres-
sive ordinance.
Kirby replied that while
she could not speak for the
Council members, she was,
certain that the Council was
not trying to hurt local busi-
nesses. She said the pro-
posed recommendations had
sprung from an earlier city
signage workshop and from
the city's visioning project.
DBPA members opined that
it was highly unlikely 'that
any business owner had
ever asked the Council to
reduce the size, placement
or number of their business
signs.
Art Dees, speaking as a
business owner and con-
cerned citizen; spoke out
against the proposed'ordi-
nance changes saying that
he felt "rather than reduce
the signage, I think ,we
should double the available
signage. I also think that
businesses should be able to
have a sign on every street
that it fronts. For instance,
in the case of-CHELCO,
'which fronts three streets,
(Baldwin Avenue, 19th
Street and U.S. 90) they
should,be able to have three
exterior signs."
Dees noted that none of
the current city council-
men had ever operated a
commercial business. that
relied on walk-in custom-
ers, therefore they lacked
any real understanding of
what it takes to operate a
commercial business or the

need for signs, banners and
other forms of advertising to
draw customers through the
door.
Off-premise signs were
another area of conten-
tion. Dees' station, WZEP,
is not located on a main
thoroughfare, as is true for
many other city businesses.
The current sign ordinance
forbids the placement of
off-premise signs on. major
streets directing travelers
to businesses that are not
located on major highways.
In Dees' case, the radio sta-
tion is located about a mile
north of U.S. 90, at the foot
of 12th Street. Since an off-
premise sign is forbidden,
unless someone knows his-
torically where that build-
ing is located, citizens have
no way of finding it because
there is no sign directing
them from the highway to
the business.
DBPA members also
pointed out that they are
forced to wait until Thanks-
giving Day to put out their
small yard signs advertis-
ing Hometown Christmas
which brings .thousands
of people into DeFuniak
Springs because the city's
"sign police" are off work
for the holiday. However,
city-sponsored Christmas
Reflections signs stay up
for weeks, even in the DOT-
owned median on U.S. 331.
Comander said, "I don't
think- the Christmas Re-
flections signs should come
down, they're needed. I just
think ouy signs should be al-
lowed to stay up for a rea-
sonable amount of time."
Kirby said the DOT are
aggressive about ,removing
signs from its right-of-way,
but agreed that the city
should be held to the same
standards as it requires of
its citizens. She also said
the Council is looking at
business signposts, like

Comander urged the

be heard. Comander noted
that at the first workshop
regarding signage, only she,

owner was in. attendance.

They don't know how you

One DBPA member said
that despite the low turnout,
the council certainly did not

signs from any member of
the local business communi-
ty and he wondered whether
the city council actually un-
derstood the vital necessity


of a healthy business com-
munity and its impact on
the city's overall economy.
Dees agreed, saying, "The
city needs to decide what it
wants. We can either have a
strong business community
that will help DeFuniak
Springs grow and prosper or
we can become a 'bedroom

or some other town, maybe

"A-teacher is under a lot

Yount said, "you're there to

On why a reading teacher
and coach are so important,
Yount emphasized, "Often
children learn to read until
about third or fourth grade,
which many of them need
longer than that. Then, sixth
grade, you turn it around
and you read to learn."

Garden variety


issues
By BRUCE COLLIER,
Assistant Editor


Several meetings have been held in the area recently,
in both north and south Walton County. University of
Florida/IFAS Walton County Extension office's Kendra
Zamojski has acted as coordinator. Attendance reportedly
has been higher than originally expected.
Some might find the subject of the meetings local food
and local products a little unexciting compared to burning
county issues like Big Blue Signs or Wedding Receptions
Gone Wild. Though they provide opportunities for some
dandy south Walton rhetoric, some of us really don't care
what beach direction signs look like. As long as they're
accurate and buckshot-resistant take a drive north on
U.S. 331 if you don't know what I mean they're hardly
Barbarians at the Gate. Noisy receptions, while annoying,
usually come to an end when the DJ packs up or the liquor
runs out.
On the other hand, we all eat, some us three times
a day. Those with families eat and feed others. We are
blessed with an ever-increasing number of groceries, one
chain in particular, opening left'and right. They seem to
be here to stay.
Large grocery stores are convenient, they stay open late,
and they have a wide selection, including produce. Does it
not seem a little odd, though, to see California oranges
sold in Florida? Can't we grow enough? As for anything
from Chile, winter strawberries and all, it is available be-
cause it can stand the trip from there to here. You may not
agree, but if all I can expect from strawberries in winter
are those giant, bland, crunchy-as-apples specimens we're
seeing these days, I think I'd rather wait until spring. Or-
anges and pears are plentiful, and still in season.
I talk about fobd a lot, to a lot of people professional
and home cooks, restaurant owners, frequent diners, and
the occasional farmer or grower. Most of them love the
idea of eating locally-raised food, not only produce, but
dairy, meat, even bread. Every month there are books
published on the dangers of basing one's diet on what au-
thor Michael Pollan calls "edible foodlike substances." The
big question is, where, to get it?
Enter Agriculture and Communities Together (ACT
Walton). This organization is still in its infancy, but the
meeting I attended on Jan. 12 drew more than 40 interest-
ed people, from restaurant owners to cooks to consumers,
even a couple of graduate agriculture students working on
a local organic farm. The purpose of the meeting was to
foster an interest in buying and eating local, and.to assess
the needs of the local market.
One of the first projects planned is creation of an in-
formational Website, including links to area producers, of
which there are a surprising abundance if one is willing to
drive a little. This could have a trickle-down (and trickle-
sideways) effect, the idea being that if local consumers
were aware of their options, they might be persuaded to
make an effort to seek out food grown in Walton County,
or the nearby region. There are cheesemakers, growers
of organically-raised meat and fowl, dairies, honey and
syrup producers, and mini-farmers' markets to be found
without driving all that fax.
No one in Walton County can seriously object to any-
thing that potentially benefits local business. The Jan. 12
ACT Walton meeting offered statistics that, if accurate,
show that more of money spent at local businesses stays
in the community than if it was spent at a national store.
This newspaper recently ran an article about Red Bay citi-
zens' efforts to set up a local-centered grocery store. Area
restaurateur and part-time Red Bay resident Charles
Morgan has been very active in promoting this, and is to
be applauded for lending his expertise his restaurants
have been very successful and his leadership to the proj-
ect. Judging from the ACT Walton meeting I attended in
January, Morgan isn't alone. He and his kindred spirits
deserve encouragement.
So do Zamojski and her colleagues at IFAS Extension.
This newspaper will be following ACT's progress in pro-
moting Walton County's "sustainable agriculture." See? It
even has a spiffy media name.
Encouragement is easy. Just devote a little time, and
a little of your grocery dollar, to seeking out and buying
local produce. Ask the vendors at farmers' markets about
foods you'd like to see. If it can't be grown locally and
despite what our supermarket conditioning has led us to
expect, not all of it can, at least year 'round then get it at
the big stores, if you want it. Ask restaurants if they. offer
locally-made food. Trust me, chefs love being able to list'
ingredient pedigrees on menus, the more local the better.
If what you see is not up to par, say so. This- isn't char-
ity, it's.market-driven supply and demand. People all over


the country enjoy locally-produced food. They come here
for the local seafood, why not for the fruits and vegetables,
or the cheese and honey?
While you're at it, start a garden. But that's another
story.

Editor:
Congratulations to our new Walton County Sheriff and
his staff on their pursuing of open cases left behind for
them. The bringing in of the K-9 unit allowed the family
of the missing senior citizen to finally have closure. The
only sad part is that, had the unit been called in when the
gentleman went missing, the outcome might have been dif-
ferent. Sheriff Adkinson and his people are to be praised
for having the knowledge and experience to utilize all re-
sources available to them.
Campaign promises by the new sheriff are being kept,
vehicles are no longer going across state lines, distance
over the county lines has been established and adhered to,
personnel records are being consolidated and officer certi-
fication policies are being instituted. Certified finance per-
sonnel are being interviewed and financial records are be-
ing verified. I would venture a guess that we taxpayers will
no longer be paying IRS fines for incompetence and lack of
proper supervision.
I am sure that there will be those who will disagree with
Sheriff Adkinson and his administration. I can only hope
that along with disagreements there will be constructive
suggestions for improvements, from what I have learned
about our new sheriff, I am convinced that he will listen
and respond to the citizens of Walton County. There will be
no more, "The sheriff is unavailable for comment."
Our .county is facing a difficult period now with the re-
cession, housing market, tourism down and revenue fall-
ing. We need to pull together as a county and offer support
and encouragement when we can. I, for one, am glad to see
a progressive and positive law-enforcement administration
in place.

Editor:
Like a lot of people, I don't always take advantage of the
things that are offered near home. Last weekend, I and two
friends decided to see what our area had to offer. After a
good breakfast, we went to the fair building for the African
experience.
We had the best time. From the wood carver from Ke-
nya; the magician who rivaled David Copperfield; the tur-
tle enthusiast from Bruce; the rescuers of wildlife animals
and birds and the awesome African exhibits that all Wal-
ton school students contributed to.
We went from exhibit to exhibit that the students had
created for different countries. We were supposed to vote
on which was the best, but we couldn't do it because they
all deserved AAA+++.
We watched a baby pet a camel and with such wonder
in his eyes. The people with the owls, hawks, and falcons
put on a great show and educated us on our impact on our
world and the birds.
Then we were off to the Civil War re-enactment with
cannons and rifle fire.
These people put a lot of time, effort and expense to
bring these events to us. I hope that others take advantage
of these events as we did. Thank you

ON THE EVE of President Barack Obama's trip to Fort
Myers for a full-court press of his approximately $800 bil-
lion stimulus package, Florida's budget picture corftinued to
grow darker. Senate budget chief J.D. Alexander, R-Winter
Haven, warned members of the Policy and Steering Com-
mittee on Ways and Means that Florida's budget shortfall
will likely reach $5 billion $1 billion more than previously
expected by this spring. "Even with the anticipated federal
stimulus funds, there is little doubt that further spending
reductions will be necessary," Alexander said.
Florida can expect to receive as much as $13 billion from
the stimulus plan that the U.S. Senate is expected to ap-
prove today, but it's not clear how much of that money leg-
islators can use to meet Florida's constitutional mandate to
balance the state budget.
Jerry McDaniel, Gov. Charlie Crist's budget chief, told
committee members that Florida may miss out on as much
as $4 billion in federal education dollars. "Right now, there
is some concern whether Florida qualifies," McDaniel said.
"There is a litany of spending restrictions."
Florida is likely to receive as much as $3.7 billion in ad-
ditional federal Medicaid money. That could free up more
than $1 billion for the Legislature to spend elsewhere once
it meets its match requirements, McDaniel said.
Republican legislators balked at the federal proposal, warn-

Editor:
This is in the spirit of Dave Barry:
"War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is
Strength" is inscribed on the Ministry of Truth Building,
like in George Orwell's famous book. The ministry controls
the news, education, and entertainment.
Meanwhile, in Bailoutistan today, network news and
newspapers are on the verge of bankruptcy. CEOs of the big
three TV/newspaper conglomerates rode Amtrak to Wash-
ington today to ask Congress for help. CEO of CNI BX ex-
claimed in the dining car Saturday, "...if help is not received
soon, our great nation of Bailoutistan will plunge into the
darkness of centuries past with no 24-hour news commen-
tary.
"This comment is on the heels of Friday's record stock-
market drop.
Chairman of the POX newspaper conglomerate, speak-
ing for the three, stated in front of the Senate Panel on
Monday, "We are asking for a meager $14 billion, which is
less than the frugal, yet benevolent gift given to the auto
industry from our foriner, great President Shrub. If we do
not get government assistance, our 3 million employees will
be subject to layoffs and the shut down of all the country's
987 local newspapers and 230 TV stations.
At the white house press command center, newly-elected
President O'Banna declares, a 'freedom of the press' state of
emergency, saying, "We can no longer wait for Congress to
act." The Bailoutistan Treasury Secretary was directed to
purchase a majority interest in preferred stock.
In further news this week, the Internet was shut down in
Bailoutistan because of ties to terrorism.

I am most grateful to those who participated in the
Scottish Ceilidh on last Saturday evening at the Walton
High School. In particular the financial support of Tyrone
and Jan Cosson, WZEP, the DeFuniak Herald, Volunteers
from the Heritage Museum, the superintendent of schools
and Walton High School personnel, Nancy Donaldson, Jim
Moore, Cathy Campbell, Ken Little, Cathy Mosley and Di-
ana Merkel. Even though the attendance was small, the
Scottish entertainment and spirit were present. The Emer-
ald Coast Pipes and Drums and Flora McDonald Gammon
were outstanding.
A heartfelt thank-you to those of you who donated to
keep the Museum open. Donations totaled more than
$1,200.

ing that it would saddle the next generation with enormous
debt and do little to stimulate the economy.
"We're not getting our fair share, but we're more than
paying back our fair share," said Sen. Mike Haridopolos,
R-Melbourne. "I think it's pretty risky venture."
Crist is scheduled to introduce Obama at a town hall
meeting in Fort Myers today and has lobbied fellow Repub-
licans in the Florida congressional delegation to support
the plan, but to little effect. All of Florida's Republicans
voted against the measure in the U.S. House.
The White House released a statement Monday ac-
knowledging Crist's support. "Gov. Crist and I have seen
firsthand the toll that this economic crisis has taken on the
American people, and we agree that we can't allow politics
to get in the way of urgent relief for millions of families and
small businesses that need it," Obama said.
Crist issued his own statement, saying Florida, "has
taken prudent steps to cut taxes for our people and balance
our budget in these increasingly difficult times."
Fort Myers is ground zero for the burst housing bubble
and ranks as one of the worst spots in the nation for mort-
gage foreclosures.

Drug of choice


By JOHN BROUSSARD,
Director, Canaan Recovery
Foundation
Alcohol and Drug Re-
covery is getting a "shot in
the arm" these days from
the media, and community
awareness of the help that is
available is on the rise. That
is the good news. Unfortu-
nately, the bad news is that
there is a severe shortage of
resources and assistance to
seriously address the needs
created by the devastation
that addiction creates.
Anyone who believes that
they are not affected by the
disease of addiction is al-
most certainly wrong. Ad-
diction crushes the spirit,
destroys the relationships,
and takes the lives of it vic-


tims. The families and com-
munities of its victims also
pay a heavy toll. As taxpay-
ers and members of society,
we are all impacted in many
unseen ways.
Television shows like
A & E's Intervention and
VH1's Celebrity Rehab have
done much to bring various
aspects of the ,problem to
popular awareness. While
the former is graphically
real and emphasizes the
catastrophic ways addic-
tion hurts addict and family
alike, the latter seems too
focused on sensationalism.
I feel the time is right to
share some of the insights
and stories of hope that I
have encountered in my own
journey of recovery. Maybe
alcoholics ard addicts still


struggling to take that first
step, or the many more fam-
ily members or friends pray-
ing for them to seek help,
may find the encouragement
they need in my ramblings.
If, by sharing my experi-
ences, strength and hope,
perhaps., shining a personal
light on how recovery can
and does work, even one suf-
fering individual makes a
life-changing decision, it will
be worth the effort. I will be
stepping out of my anonymi-
ty, which is emphasized (and
perhaps over-stressed) in
the AA program. Anonymity
may be the topic of my next
column, but I welcome any
suggestions or questions. If
anyone is needing help, call
(850) 974-4573.

the show. (Photo by Cathy Mosley)


THE ENTIRE CAST of performers for the Scottish Ceilidh gather on stage to close the show with "Auld Lang Syne,"
which was adopted as a "New Years" song in America. Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote the song in 1788 and the title liter-
ally means "old, long, since." Robert Burns sent a copy of the original song to the Scots Musical Museum with the remark,


"The following song, an old song, of the olden times, and which has never been in print, nor
even in manuscript until I took it down from an old man." Some of the lyrics were indeed
"collected" rather than.composed by the poet. The ballad "Old Long Syne," printed in 1711
by James Watson, shows considerable similarity in the first verse and the chorus to Burns'
later poem. It is a fair supposition to attribute the rest of the poem to Burns himself. (Photo
by Cathy Mosley)



Gaily went the Ceilidh


By RON KELLEY
Almost 100 local resi-
dents attended their very
first Scottish Ceilidh (pro-
nounced KAY-lee) held at
Walton High School Friday
night..
Guests enjoyed an eve-
ning of music, story-telling
and merriment with a Scot-
tish flair. Featured per-
formers included stirring


bagpipe music from the
Emerald Coast Pipes and
Drums, Scottish poetry of
Robert Burns by John Dall,
a native Scot, and Flora Mc-
Donald Gammon, director of
music for the Grandfather
Mountain (North Carolina)
Highland Games. Singer
Nancy Donaldson, pianist
Cathy Campbell, author and
story-teller Jim Moore also
helped make the evening a


big success. I
This event was organized
and sponsored by William
Steadley-Campbell, Tyrone
Cosson, Gulf Power, and the
Walton County Heritage As-
sociation, raising money for
the Walton County Heritage
Museum. Guests learned
that it wasn't necessary to
have a drop of Scottish blood
to have a great time at the
Ceilidh!

"At what point does some-
thing happen?"' asked citizen
Anita Page.
"They're doing their de-
velopment," she added.
TRC member/countyplah-
ner Melissa Ward responded
that, if development order
applicants do not respond to
a county comment letter on
their application within 45
days, they may be, required
by the planning director to
start'the process over. How-
ever, she said, D&H Sand*
has complied with the "45-
day rule" by maintaining e-
mail and other contact since
the comment letter was is-
sued.
Ward added that prog-
ress is being made by the
applicants, even if it is "at a
snail's pace." ., :
TRC member/county
planning supervisor Renee


Bradley noted that, if the
applicants do not agree to
make the changes the plan-
ning department deems
necessary, it would be pos-'
sible to go ahead and send
the proposal to the Walton
County Zoning Board of Ad-
justment (ZBA) for consider-
ation, with the information
that the planning depart-
ment recommends against
approval.
The ZBA will have the
final say, since the mining
operations will require that
board's approval as a special
.exception in order to con-
tinue in the land use area
where it is operating.
"The longer they drag
this out, the better it is for
them," citizen Lee Perry
said of D&H Sand. He was
of the opinion that .there
was no motivation for the


applicants to be in a hurry,
since they were not having
to wait for a development
order to do business.
Burgis responded that it
is certainly not the appli-
cants' intent to drag their
feet. He noted that they had
been required to adjust the
preservation .percentage on
the property from 25 per-
cent to 50 percent, which he
called "a major design as-
pect of the project.".
TRC member/county
planner George Newman
made a motion to require
D&H Sand to respond in
writing to county staff com-,.
ments on their application
by two weeks prior to the
March 18 TRC meeting, and
for the matter to be consid-
ered\ at that time, with Pat
Blackshear, county plan-
ning and development ser-
vices director, to provide
information on what options
are available to the TRC
regarding the application.
Newman also called for the
presentation of information
at that time on the code
enforcement board's final
order to the business. New-
man's motion was approved
with all yes votes.

lector Employee Fund, Inc.
Broom requested permis-
sion to sell tickets and waive
rental fees at the DeFuniak
Springs Community Center
for a gospel sing/fund raiser
with all proceeds going to
St. Jude's Children Hospi-
tal.
Broom explained the group
he belonged to and their
mission to the Council, "We
were organized as a commu-
nity outreach program. We
consist of employees of the
Walton County Tax Collec-
tor's office. We support em-
ployee fundraising, such as
community benefits, fainily
appreciation, family emer-
gencies and family/employ-
ees support and bereave-
ment. The employees club
will donate 100 percent of
what we collect to St. Jude's
from this fundraiser gospel
sing scheduled for Feb. 28..
We intend to sell tickets for
$5 or a donation and all chil-
dren under 12 will be admit-
ted for free." The Council ap-
proved McBroom's request
by unanimous approval.
Leigh Morrison gave the
Council her quarterly report
on the Life Enrichment Se-
nior Center. Morrison said,
"We have a total of 165 mem-
bers, which is up by 19 this
quarter. In the month of No-


vember, we had 248 people
sign in and in Dec. we had
261. We collected and depos-
ited funds totaling $3100.50
this quarter. Every thing
is going well at the Senior
Center." The Council con-
gratulated Morrison on her
work with the Senior Center
and it's progress.
The Council then moved
to awarding the contract for
the professional engineer-
ing for the proposed phase
three of the city's water im-
provements. Peters Munici-
pals received the top scores
among the Council, with
Goodyn Mills and Associ-
ates following closely behind
in the scores determined by
the Council. The Council
voted unanimously to accept
the proposal and award the
contracts to Peters Munici-
pal Associates.
The Council then unani-
mously approved four health
insurance options for em-
ployees. DFS Mayor Harold
Carpenter appointed Jack
Hicks to the Magnolia Cem-
etery Board. Hicks' nomina-
tion was approved unani-
mously by the Council.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12,2009


Mossy Head Water Works, Inc.
2008 Quality Water Report

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the excel-
lent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been to provide to you a safe
and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells draw from the Floridan
Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the
data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP
Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.de.state.fl.us.swapp.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Tom Terrell, President, Mossy
Head Water Works Inc. at (850) 892-6154. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you
want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each month at
our office building at 7 p.m.
Tips for Saving Water
Don't over water your lawn. Only water every three to five days in the summer and 10 to 14 days in the winter.
To prevent water loss from evaporation, don't water your lawn during the hottest part of the day or when it is windy.
Only run the dishwasher and clothes washer when they are fully loaded.
Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running water over it.
When washing dishes by hand, use two basins one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and driveways.
If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.
Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year. Leaky toilets can
waste as much as 200 gallons each day. /
Mossy Head Water Works Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of
January 1 to December 31, 2008. Data obtained before January 1, 2008, and presented in this report are from the most recent
testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations..
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some
cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants
in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contami-
nants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants.
The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contami-
nants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline
at 1-800-426-4791.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agri-
cultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a varietyof sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and resi-
dential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial proc-
esses and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwaterrunoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided
the following definitions: ,
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as
close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. !
Action.Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which,,if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water
system must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water
sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water
sample.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL -The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is don-
vincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not: reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts locations with high con-
centrationsof trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction
with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead
in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Mossy Head
Water Works is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing
components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing
your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water,
you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to mini-
mize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://llwww.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compro-
mised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ trans-
plants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contami-
nants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at the Mossy Head Water Works Inc. work daily to insure that our customers are provided with the highest quality drinking
water available. We encourage all members to become actively involved in the business of your system.

Africa comes to life for


Walton County students


The 14th Annual Florida
. Chautauqua Assembly pre-
sented "Journey Through
Africa" this past weekend
at the Walton County Fair-
grounds. Walton County
Schools participated in cre-
ating free-standing exhib-
its for the event, some as
large as ten-feet wide, were
displayed on each of the 53
countries of Africa.
Exhibits -designed by
students from, elementary
school through high school
worked diligently to find cre-
ative ways to educate all of
us on this fascinating region
of the. world. Visitors were
invited to vote on a favorite
exhibit for cash awards.
A cash award of $100 was
presented to each winner
by Chris Mitchell with the
Florida Chautauqua Assem-
bly. to the teachers of the
winning booths at the Tues-
day, Feb. 3, Walton County
School Board meeting.
Ms. Sandi Miller's class
won the elementary school
booth representing Egypt.
Mr. Jeremy Deal's class won
for middle school represent-
ing the country of Mozam-
bique, and Mr. Glen Har-
rison's class won the high
school booth representing
the country of Namibia.
The hands-on learning
project provided students
with the opportunity to
learn about the lifestyles
and cultures of the African
countries. Students built
straw huts, created large
giraffes, light-up maps, vid-
eos, and even mummified a
chicken to learn about life in
Africa. Student creativity
came to life with unbeliev-
able artwork and replicas of
native Africa.

"Sticks and stones may
break my bones but words,
will never harm me." Re-
member that? Or how about
"I'm rubber and you're glue.
Everything that you say
bounces back and sticks to
you." And I'm still ashamed
of something I did when I
was six years 'old. I had a
friend who lived on my block
who would come to play. But
when my cousin came, she
lived out of town, we didn't
really want anyone else
there. Sometimes my "in-
town" friend would come
anyway and when she" left
we would say, "Come back
again when you can't stay
so long." I always meant to
apologize.
I went to' my ;"in-town"
. friend's funeral a couple of
months ago. I said, "I'm sor-
ry, Betty Ruth." I hope she
heard me. These ard taunts
that I remember from my
childhood, and they could'
be considered a mild form
of playing the bully, but this
"bully thing" has escalated
until we have children kill-
ing children.

lieved to be the first product

manufacturer of the weapon.,
They are currently a party
in about 40 other cases that
are still pending."
Walton County Sheriff
Michael Adkinson success-
fully introduced the use
of Tasers to the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
when he was city marshal-
without any complications.
Adkinson announced that.
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office (WCSO) would also
start using Tasers.
Adkinson said, "If an in-
dividual struggles with a
law enforcement officer, the
public should remember
that there is a gun involved.
This automatically escalates
the situation, due to the pos-
sibility of the officer's gun
becoming involved. A major-
ity of officers killed in this
country are killed with their
own firearm. Understand-
ing that, when a deputy or
an officer gives a citizen an
order to comply or be taken'
into custody, if you choose to
resist that or choose to fight
with the officer, I believe the
officer or deputy should use"
all means necessary to keep
it from escalating. That pro-
tects the citizen involved as
well. If a 'deputy or officer
fears for their life, they may
elect to use a firearm. We
would much prefer they use
a taser than a firearm."
"The gentleman could
probably have avoided be-
ing tased three times by fol-
lowing instructions. His ac-
tions caused him to be tased


The Walton County
School Board has adopted
a new policy to address the
bullying and harassment
problem in the schools.
And 'the Chatauqua As-
sembly plans to do its part.
On Monday, Feb. 23, Brad
Tassell, a comic with the
Disney Carnival Tours and
author of several children's
books, will begin a series of
performances in the Walton
County. Schools. His book,
"Don't Feed the Bully," has
been distributed throughout
the county. Brad will make
12 appearances in four days
addressing the "bully prob-
lem," which has become his
passion.
On Tuesday evening; Feb.
24, at 7 p.m. Brad will meet
parents and other interest-
ed parties to discuss their
part in the bully problem
and to answer questions.
The meeting will take place
in the sanctuary of the First
United Methodist Church in
DeFuniak Springs.
If you Google bullies in
the Bible, the first name
that comes up is Goliath.

three times. From the way
it sounds, after the third
time he decided to comply
and get into the patrol car.
I don't know the specifics of
this case, but I think it is ab-
solutely appropriate to use
a taser, when an individual
chooses to fight with an of-
ficer," said Adkinson.
Different type of tasers
deliver different types of
charges according to Adkin-
son, "I've been tased 12 or
13 times in demonstrations,
classes and such." Some of
the small-hand held devices
that have to make direct con-
tact with the body send less
of a charge, "It's like touch-
ing a- ground wire." But,
the use of smaller devices
are not as safe as a larger,
tethered device, as the of-
ficer or deputy would have:
to be able to get close to the
resister to touch them with
it. The larger device can be
fired from farther away, im-
proving officer safety.
Adkinson said, "the use of
force standards by the state
Florida is a good guide for
officers to use as each cir-
cumstance is different in the
field. You can only use that
taser until the person stops
resisting. At the point they
stop resisting, you should
de-escalate."
This seems to be what is
at the crux of the Supreme
Court case, what is consid-
ered resistance to a law en-
forcement officer and how
far can tasers be used to
get compliance from a citi-
zen, should they passively
resist? It's up to the court
now to decide, should they
choose to hear the case.

A soldier's letters to home


By JEFFREY POWELL
Ask any military person-
nel that have been deployed
to a war zone how they feel
about letters from home and
most will tell you they are
the highlight of their day.
This is 'as true today as it
has been since the first man
left home to battle an adver-
sary.
Recent articles in this
newspaper concerning Civ-
il War re-enacments and
ditty-bags to be sent to Af-
ghanistan spurred local res-
ident Gladys Cromartie to
take another look at letters
from her husband's relative
that served during the War
Between the States.
Confederate Lt. Joel Clif-
ton Blake was the great-un-
cle of longtime area resident
Joel Blake Cromartie. Blake
was originally from Micco-
sukee, FL. which is just east
of Tallahassee. In his letters
to home he expresses a myr-
iad of emotions and details
about his surroundings at
that time. Much of the con-
tents are an attempt to keep
tabs on what had previously
been an ordinary life. One
letter from his wife Laura
evoked this response.
"I eagerly broke open the
envelope and commenced to
devour its contents," Blake
writes. "I was at times com-
pletely overcome and could
not read for the tears which
fell thick and fast down my
cheeks. I was overcome with.
gratitude to God for his
goodness to me."
In another letter to his
sister Ann Eliza, Blake ex-
presses his thanks for the
treats she and her mother
had sent him.
"Tell mama I am much
obliged to her for the pep-
per vinegar and catsup, we
can never get such things in
camp, you can not imagine
how such things are prized.
The sugar-cane was quite a
curiosity here, and while en-
joying it my thoughts carried
me back to' the laiidi f flow-
ers and produced wit Hin me
a longing desire to be once
more* with the dear ones
at home," Blake reflected.
"How time lags when we are
thus separated. froi-l- that
is dear to us on eaith:"
Other portions 6f the let-
ters deal with the realities
that life, and financial hard-
ships, went on at home.
"I do not know what peo-
ple will do to meet their tax-
es this year if congress pass-
es the present tax bill tinder
[tender] considering it will
take a tenth of everything
made by producers," Blake
worried. "To take a tenth of
our meat, syrup, etc. when
we do not make enough for
home consumption will go
rather hard on us'."
In retrospect, Joel Cro-
martie can see both honor
and humor in his relative's
writings.
"I am right proud of him,"
Cromartie said. "He was do-
ing what he thought was
right. I think it is funny
when he talks about Lincoln
being so close to him."
Cromartie is 'referring
to a passage from an April
10, 1863 letter written from
outside Fredericksburg, VA.
"We suppose old Lincoln
was over there yesterday,"
he said. "We heard 21 guns
in rapid succession, which
number constitute their
president's salute, no other
officer being entitled to that
number."
Unfortunately Blake was

killed in battle on July 2,

lieved to be buried there al-
though his body was never
positively identified.
"I have had people read
these letters and just cry,"
said Gladys Cromartie. "It
is sad to read how much he
wanted to come home and
have him get killed at Get-
tysburg." -

Glen Coffee


speaks in

DeFuniak Springs


GLEN COFFEE featured on Sports Illustrated cover.


By ASHLEYAMASON
Fort Walton Beach na-
tive and Crimson Tide MVP
Glen Coffee (better known
as Mr. Coffee) spoke at the
DeFuniak Springs Civic
Center Thursday, Feb. 5,
directly after attending an
NFL training session in
Pensacola.
Judge Kelvin Wells intro-
duced Coffee as the keynote
speaker for the Boy and
Girls Clubs of the Emerald
Coast's First Annual Steak
and Hamburger Fundrais-
er.
In a speech that may
have surprised the packed
auditorium, Coffee shared
the story of his journey to
the University of Alabama.


LOCAL PASTORS gather round Glen Coffee for a prayer of blessing and protection as he
trains to enter the NFL.


His dream was to attend
Florida State University,
but when an offer with FSU
fell through, Coffee said he
realized college football is
a business. Coffee begrudg-
ingly accepted a scholarship
to the University of Ala-
bama, saying, as a "Florida
boy, we don't do that."
After hanging with a
crowd he described as "lazy,"
letting his GPA fall, and
suffering a short suspen-
sion over a textbook-sharing
scandal, Coffee said he knew
had to get right.
With the help of his col-
lege.roommate, Coffee said
he began to form a personal
relationship with Christ.
In every aspect of his life,
he says, he wanted to give
glory to God. "Whatever
your dream is, if you reach
it without Christ, it'll make
that dream very dull."
Coffee applies his person-
al relationship with Christ
to football, saying with a
smile, "anyone who tries to
stop me is trying to stop
my ministry and I have to
make them pay."
With 410 career attempts,
2,107 yards rushing, and 14
touchdowns, Coffee's defi-
nitely making his opponents
pay.
But his stat sheet is not
what holds his focus. "I don't
know what y'all thought I
was going to get up here and
talk about, but this is it," he
said, holding up the Bible.
"Whatever you do, honor.
your friends, respect every-
body: and -you'll get that re-
spect in return and you've
got to have a foundation in
Jesus Christ."


. ...


GLEN COFFEE, UA MVP, credits his success to his rela-
tionship with Christ.

Gamecocks, stands with his mother Dorris Coffee while

Tampa: Home to Superbowl XLIII


By ASHLEYAMASON
Tampa was. overloaded
as tourists and football fans
from across the country


swarmed the city Super-
bowl weekend. Though most
came to watch the Steelers
and the Cardinals battle


THE SALVADOR DALIMuseum holds-the largest collec-
tion of Dali works in the world.


it out in Superbowl XLIII,
Tampa held events city-
wide to keep crazed fans
entertained before and after.
the big game.
Drawing visitors year
round is the Salvador, Dali
museum, home to the larg-
est collection of Dali works
in the world. The museum
holds two of Dali's most fa-
mous paintings, "The disin-
tegration of the persistence
of memory" and "Gala con-
templating the Mediterra-
nean Sea." For only $15, one
can view the largest collec-
tion of the most studied Sur-
realist artist of our time.
Psyching fans up with
laughter before Superbowl
Sunday was Dane Cook,
performing at the St. Pete
Times Forum Saturday
night. Cook had the audi-


ence roaring when he asked
"Who here is a Steelers fan?
Who here is a Cardinals fan?
Who here doesn't care about
either team and just came to
see me?"
Street vendors lined up
outside the St. Pete Times
Forum, selling carnival food,
cotton candy, and football
paraphernalia, while rock-
ing to a live band stationed
in front of the forum.
For those who wanted to
escape to the natural beau-
ty of Tampa, the bay harbor
remains a gorgeous place to
have lunch, watch the boats
come in, or for fans to argue
over which team is better.
With such spirit and life
pulsing through the city,
it's obvious why Tampa was
chosen to host Superbowl
XLIII.

C3A Director addresses DEFS garden CCub


INIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12,2009


By JEFFREY POWELL

The Defuniak Springs
Garden Club welcomed
Choctawhatchee Basin Al-
liance (CBA) Director Julie
Terrell to speak at its regu-
lar monthly meeting on Feb.
4. Terrell gave a power-point
presentation outlining the
CBA's general mission and
upcoming projects.
"Having Julie here was
very interesting and in-
formative," said Defuniak
Springs Garden Club Vice-
President Liz Sinclair. "Ev-
eryone could learn from her
insights, water quality is a


very important issue for us
all."
According to Terrell's
presentation, the CBA fo-
cuses on four key points to
insure the water quality of
the Choctawhatchee Basin
watershed, which stretches
well into Alabama. Those
points are: monitoring, res-
toration, research and edu-
cation. The CBA is able to
achieve much of its efforts
due to volunteer workers.
Volunteers work to help
monitor many of the area's
bodies of water, and the or-
ganization is always in need
of additional personnel.


Currently the monitoring
effort is mainly in the south-
ern sections of Walton and
Okaloosa county but Terrall
would like to see the entire
two-county area manned.
"We train citizen volun-
teers to help us monitor the
watershed," said Terrell.
"We are actively looking for
people to help in the De-
funiak Springs area."
The CBA is also currently
involved with several living
shoreline projects and storm-
water improvements in and
around Choctawhatchee
Bay. Those efforts include
a private citizen restoring


a shoreline at his own ex-
pense, stormwater efforts at
Cessna Park in Santa Rosa
Beach, shoreline protection
at Mattie Kelly Park in Des-
tin and the Sound Park in
Fort Walton Beach.
"I am very happy to share
our knowledge with a group
as involved with the envi-
ronment as the Defuniak
Springs Garden Club," Ter-
rell said "I hope jo work
together with them some
time."

For more information
concerning the CBA see

Ask Auntie Im


Dear Auntie Em,

I have a similar, but different situation
than the reader's issue you answered last
week. My husband and I are not under any
economic strain. Well, business is not as
good, but we are paying the bills.
My problem is more personal between
my husband and I. He just seems distant
lately. He doesn't really talk to me anymore
and it just seems like he has withdrawn a
great deal from our relationship during the
.last year.
We have been married for over 20 years
and have always worked everything out,
but this is the first time in our marriage, I
fear that something maybe really wrong. I
can't discuss this with my friends, because I
don't want the whole town gossiping about
my marriage.
In all honesty, I fear he is seeing some-
one else. What are some of the signs of
cheating and what can I do?

Worried wife in Walton
(Name and address withheld on request)

Dear Worried,

I can understand your concern and I ap-
preciate you writing to me, but there is one
person you need to talk to first and that is
your husband. If you have tried that and he
is not responding or avoiding the subject,
maybe I can help a little.
Unless he is coming home smelling like
perfume, with lipstick on his collar and you
are getting hang-up calls at home, I would
not jump to the conclusion that he is cheat-
ing.
Men often handle pressure differently
than women. Whereas we want to talk it


out, men often shut down and shut every-
one out until the crisis is over. Maybe he
is worried about finances. Honestly, most
of the letters and e-mails I have received
lately has been about local economics and
how they are affecting families.
I would first try to talk with him in a
very non-confrontational manner. Sit be-
side him and not across from him. Take his
hand and tell him what you just told me.
Be calm and non-judgmental when dealing
with his responses. Maybe this will help
you to find out what is going on. He may
just fear failing you with whatever he is
keeping inside. If that be the case, reassure
him you are still there for him and start
rebuilding your communications network.
If this doesn't work, you may want to try
counseling with a marriage therapist or a
family pastor.
Your last resort would be getting snoopy
' and going through his stuff or following
him. I say this because if you resort to these
types of things, you may as well go see a
divorce attorney because the trust in your
marriage is shot and it is hard to rebuild.
One last thing I will tell you is very
often, as my Grandma used to say, we
know the answers to our questions before
we ask them. We just need to hear them
from someone else. If your heart is telling
you something's fishy, you have to decide
whether you want to stay on that pond or
pull your boat to more hospitable shores.
The decision is yours. You will be in my
thoughts. Good luck and God bless you.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12,2009


SONNY HOLLINGSWORTH (1) Polly Whitehead and Joyce Kelly recently presented a
check for $800 to the Walton County Retired Educators Association. The donation was from
graduates of the 1940s. The funds will go directly to the organization's annual scholarship
fund. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)


Over the years, I've made
it my personal policy to not
talk about others. In the
words of Dolly Parton, "Now
you know I'd walk on my lips
to avoid criticizing anybody,
but..." lately, something I
have seen has forced me to
unleash my tongue, and for
the moment, my political
correctness.
The thing to which I refer
is the manner of dress young
women are wearing, and it
begs only one question.
Ladieg, have you lost your
minds?
Last weekend I was in
Tampa to see Dane Cook
perform. At 8 p.m., in 35-de-
gree weather, 95 percent of
the women around me were
dressed in -miniskirts, hal-
ter tops, and stilettos-all
of them looking, for lack of a
more fitting word I can't use
in print, trashy.
Everywhere I turned, Vic-
toria's secret was more than
exposed. I was so amused
by these women's attire, the
couple sitting next to me in
the St. Pete Times Forum
and I had a game going all
night: 10 points for sight-
ing a miniskirt, 15 for hal-
ter tops, and 20 for things,
well, hanging out. If this
had been a video game, we
would've set a new record.
I wondered aloud to my
new friends, "What do these
women think? That Dane
Cook's going to see them
from the stage, stop dead in
his tracks and say, 'You're
the trashy woman of my
dreams."'
Not likely.
Now don't get me wrong,
ladies. If you dress like my
fellow Dane Cook fans,
you're going to get someone's
attention, but is it really the
kind of attention you want?
Comedian Dave Chap-
pelle told a story which
clarifies this type of dress.
absolutely. In his stand-up
routine, he recalls an inci-
dent when he approached a
woman in a club and asked
her to go home with him.
She was outraged by his
request, but he explained
that, based on the way she
was dressed, he thought
she was that kind of girl.
She angrily retorts, "Wait
a minute! Just because I'm
dressed this way does not
make me a ----- (word that
rhymes with store)!"
Chappelle accepts her an-
swer and takes her logic one
step further in his stand-up,
saying, "Gentlemen,. that
is true. Just because they
dress a certain way doesn't
mean they are a certain way.
Don't ever forget it. But la-
dies, you must understand
that is confusing! It just is.
Now that would be like me,
Dave Chappelle the comedi-
an, walking down the street
in a cop uniform. Somebody
might run up on me, saying,
'Oh, thank God. Officer, help


us! Come on. They're over
here. Help us!' and I'd reply,
'No, no, no, just because I'm
dressed this way does not
make me a police officer!'
Point taken?
Not only does dressing in
'a class-less manner under-
score your character, it un-
dermines your intelligence.
Recently. I attended a local
event where I needed to
speak with the regional pro-
gram director. As I entered
the room, I noticed a young
woman dressed much like
the women I encountered in
Tampa. Based on her attire
and demeanor, I immediate-
ly ruled her out as someone
in a position of authority,
but a perfect candidate for
"What Not to Wear." Imag-
ine my shock when she took
the stage to introduce her-
self as the regional program
director. Articulate, edu-
cated, and passionate about
her position, her appearance
wholly contradicted her in-
telligence.
Oh, how I long for the
days of Jackie Onassis' and
Audrey Hepburn's style: em-
pire waists, A-lined skirts,
and silk blouses. Their
style was not only elegant
and feminine, but exuded a
sexiness that whispered, "I
am woman. Now eat your
heart out." Everyone knows
a whisper is sexier than a'


shout.
Now, I'm not your grand-
mother. I'm not saying forego
the dress that gives you bet-
ter curves than a Corvette.
and I'm not saying toss the
heels that define your legs
and arch your back, but for
your own sake and the sake
of all those who have to see
you in public, dress with
some class.
For God's sake, check the
weather report in the morn-
. ing. I don't care how tan you
are or, how great your legs
look, if you wear a miniskirt
anytime other than sum-
mer, the only thing you look
is stupid and while I ap-
plaud designer's efforts to
improve the literacy rate,
please, throw away no,
burn any pair of shorts or
pants you own that have
words like "juicy" or "tasty"
written across the seat be-
cause, ladies, that is just too
tacky for words.
Rent. a movie, from the
1940s and look at how beau-
tiful women were in clothing
that gave them an hourglass
shape and subtly hinted at
their curves rather than
putting them on display for
all to see.
The bottom line is, please
take this one simple piece of
advice from Greg Behrendt,
author of.the book and film
"He's Just Not That Into
You." Ladies, always, al-
ways act and look classy.

program to be presented


Gracious God, I acknowl-
edge that You are worthy of
all honor, glory and praise. I
am thankful for the victori-
ous work of Your Son, Jesus
Christ at Calvary for me. I
appropriate His victory for
myself now as I willingly
surrender every area of my
life to Your will.
Thank you for the forgive-
ness and righteousness that
has been given to me as Your
adopted child. I trust in Your
protection and provision dai-
ly. I know that Your love for
me never ceases.
I rejoice in Your victory,
my Lord, over all the prin-,
cipalities and powers in the
heavenly realm. In faith I
stand in Your victory and
commit myself to live obedi-
ently for You my King.
I desire that my fellow-
ship with You become great-
er. Reveal to me those things
that grieve You and enable


the enemy to secure an ad-
vantage in my life. I need
the Holy Spirit's powerful
ministry in my life; bringing
conviction of sin, repentance
of heart, strengthening my
faith and increasing perse-
verance in resisting tempta-
tion.
Help me to die to self and
walk in the victory of the
new creation You have pro-
vided for me. Let the fruits
of the Spirit flow out of my
life so that You will be glori-
fied through my life.
I know that it is Your
will that I should stand firm
and resist all of the enemy's
work against me. Help me
to discern the- attacks upon
my thoughts and emotions.
Enable me to stand upon
Your Word and resist all
the accusations, distortions
and condemnations that are
hurled against me.
It is my desire to be trans-


formed through the renew-
ing of my mind, so that I will
not compromise with the
ways of the world, or yield
to the. enemy's attacks, but
be obedient to Your will.
I draw upon those spiri-
tual resources that You have
provided me and I attack the
strongholds and plans of the
enemy that have been put
in place against me. I com-
mand in the name of Jesus
Christ that the enemy must
release my mind, will, emo-
tions and body completely.
They have been yielded to
the Lord and I belong to
Him.
Lord, enable me to be-
come the person You created'
me to be. Help me as I pray
to be strong in faith. Show
me how to apply Your Word
in my life each day. I know
that I wear the full armor
of God when I am commit-
ted to and stand firmly upon

In reading First Corin-
thians 2:2-5, we can be con-
vinced that our faith is "in
the power of God." Our faith
is belief in action, a way of
living sustained by belief.
Faith is putting to the test
the things the Bible says are
true. Note two foundations.
First, some persons may
reach certain conclusions
in their fields of study or
work which leaves God out
of their thoughts. Second,
there is the recognition of
the power of God as over all.
Christians accept only those
beliefs that harmonize with
the sovereignty of God. The
first leads to faith in the wis-
dom of humans. The second
leads to faith in the power of
God.


Christianity is not a mode
of organization--a church; it
is not a statement of belief-
-a creed; it is not a standard
of conduct--an idealized way
of living. It is the power of
God, molding the lives of
believing people. To believe
on the Lord Christ is to give
Him the complete control of
ones life. To believe in Him
is to accept His way of living
as the pattern of daily con-
duct, and to take up one's
cross and follow Him.
To believe on Christ as
the Lord, the anointed of
God, is to see in Him all the
fulfillment of all the high
and holy hopes of man-
kind. It is to face the future,
with the assurance that all
things are working together


DR. ROBERT M. JAYE


for one's good.
The Christian religion
offers a spiritual dynamic
which, to the believer, brings
people into vital relation-
ship with the eternal God,
so that their faith may be in
the power of God. The Chris-
tian. religion is not an expla-
nation of the power and love
of god. It is an experience of
the power and love of God in
our Lord Christ by the pow-
er of the Holy Spirit.

Walton, Paxton and PDL claim district championships


By PATRICK CASEY
Saturday night 'was a
good night to be a girls bas-
ketball player or fan of three
of our Area 5 teams.
The Walton Braves, Pax-
ton Bobcats and Ponce de
Leon Pirates all won their
match-ups in the district
championship games of
their respective districts to
earn the right -to host first
round state playoff games
on Thursday night.
The Walton Braves had
the closest call amongst the
three local teams. It took
a banked-in jumper from
sophomore point guard Tori
Lincoln from the left side
of the lane as time expired
for the Braves to pull out a
52-50 win over arch-enemy
Pensacola Catholic. ,
The ending wasn't as cli-
mactic in Vernon as Ponce
de Leon used a 22-11 run in
the third quarter to build a
45-21 lead over the Baker
Gators. PDL won the contest
53-34 for their third victory
over the Gators this season


while claiming their fifth
consecutive district title.
The Paxton Bobcats also
had five as the magic num-
ber and defeated Rocky
Bayou at Central High 60-
37 for their fifth consecutive
district championship in
Class A.
Walton's win proved the
most problematic as the
Braves faced down a Cru-
sader squad that had won
25 in a row against Walton
until the Braves beat them
in DeFuniak Springs in ear-
ly December. The Crusaders
reached' the championship
game after Fallon Hartig
stole an inbounds pass from
South Walton in the .final
seven seconds and raced
down the floor for the -game
winning bucket in a 37-35
win on Friday night that
ended the Seahawks' season
with a thud.
Against Walton, the
Braves took an 11-4 lead
after one quarter of play as
Walton forced several turn-
overs early to build a lead.


That evaporated in the sec-
ond quarter as Walton went
cold from the floor and com-
mitted several turnovers
of their own as Pensacola
Catholic rallied for a 24-18
halftime advantage.
Walton came out with
the adrenaline pumping in
the third quarter and the
Braves quickly converted
several early possessions to
take the lead. They held a
20-11 scoring advantage in
the quarter to recapture the
lead after 24 minutes of play
at 38-35.
Walton held the advan-
tage most of the fourth
quarter, but the Braves hit
a dry spell from the floor as
Catholic's Sunny Harris hit
some key perimeter baskets
to help the Crusaders claw
back into the contest. The
Crusaders took the lead
with 90 seconds to play at
50-49 only to have Walton
convert a free throw with
less than a minute to play to
tie the game at 50-50. Cath-
olic missed a shot on the

next possession and Walton
grabbed the rebound with
30 seconds left and a chance
to win the game. The Braves
nearly gave up that chance
and had to burn several tim-
eouts to hold onto the ball
as they took the clock down.
* The ,Crusaders stole the ball
with less than 15 seconds
left in the game, but turned
it right back over on a back-
court violation.
Walton got the ball in
to Tori Lincoln with seven
seconds left and she raced
into the lane to hit the fate-
ful shot that made Walton
a district champion in girls
basketball for the first time
since the 1995-96 season.
Tori Lincoln scored all 14
of her points in the second
half while Betsy Stevenson
put up 14 points with Jas-
mine Moore scoring 12 on
the night.
"We had to win this
game," Lincoln said after
the celebration quieted
down. "Coach McClure told
me to take it to the basket
and I was able to get a good
angle on the final shot. We
wanted it so bad! We had to
win this game."
Senior Lee Paulk was
held to three points after
battling the flu on Friday
night. "I had to play tonight.
It wasn't easy. But we did
enough to .-win. Coach works
us hard and it paid off to-
night. This team can do a lot
of different things."
Betsy Stevenson was
overjoyed -with the win.
"We've played' a lot better
lately, won a lot of close
games. They are our rivals
and we had to get past them
to win the district title. The
last few months have been
great for me to be a senior
at Walton."
Walton <,(18-7) will host
Chipley (15-9) on Thursday
night at 7 p.m. in the open-
ing round of the state play-
offs in Class 3A. The Tigers
gave Walton two of their
seven losses this season, but
got shellacked in Marianna
by the Bulldogs in the Dis-
trict 2 title game Saturday
58-26. .
"They'll be tough," Walton
girls basketball coach Terry
McClure said after the Cath-
olic win. "They are athletic.
They beat us last year at the
buzzer. They beat us twice
this year. This is where the
real season begins. We took
the first step, but we have
a lot more to accomplish to
reach our goals."
Paxton (19-6) used a fa-
miliar philosophy to take out
Rocky Bayou. The Bobcats
played shut-down defense
and pounded the ball into
junior center Erin Walker


to win games. Walker put
up 22 points in the district
clincher while teammates
Stevie Davidson added 14
and Krysten Cuchens had
10. Paxton turned the game
into a rout with a 23-8 ad-
vantage in the third quarter
that saw Paxton hold a 53-
31 lead entering the final
quarter of play that led to
the final margin of 60-37.
The Bobcats, like PDL,
won all three meetings
with Rocky Bayou and will
open the Class A playoffs
on Thursday night at 7 p.m.
when they host Bethlehem
(18-8). The Wildcats knocked
off Paxton in November in
Bethlehem, but now have to
travel to Paxton to take on a
group that is unlikely to lose
at home.
Paxton reached the dis-
trict title game after squash-
ing Laurel Hill 61-23 in the
semi-final on Friday night.
Walker led the way with 16
points while Emmalee In-
finger scored 11 and Stevie
Davidson had 10.
Ponce de Leon, now near
full strength for the first
time perhaps all year, de-
feated Jay 58-43 in the dis-
trict semi-final in Vernon on
Friday night to advance to
the meeting with Baker on
Saturday. The Pirates got
16 points from a healed Hil-
lary Harper while the ever
consistent Gypsy Griffin
provided 15 points in end-
ing Jay's season. The Royals
had given the Pirates a pair
of tough games in the regu-
lar season and were within
41-36 to start the fourth
quarter before the top seed
pulled away with a 17-7 fi-
nal quarter of play.
Against Baker, who strug-
gled to put the ball through
the hoop in three meetings
with the Pirates this sea-
son, PDL took a 23-10 lead
to the locker room and nev-
er looked back on the way
to the 53-34 victory. The
Pirates got 13 points from
Griffin and 11 from Hillary
Harper. They hit 20-of-30
free throws to earn a home
game with Blountstown on
Thursday in a first round
Class 2A playoff game at 7
p.m.
Tourney notes: The sec-
ond round of the playoffs
will be held on Tuesday,
February 17, which falls
after the Herald's deadline
for that week and the Satur-
day night region finals that
would be on Saturday, Feb-
ruary 21.
"The Walton girls are 16-
14 in 14 state playoff ap-
pearances. The Braves lost
in Chipley last year on a
shot by forward Sherina
Gonzalez at the buzzer 58-


56 after having never lost
a buzzer-beater in their
playoff history. Walton has
made several winning shots
to end games this year and
may have to do so to get by
Chipley on Thursday, but
the Tigers 32-point loss in
Marianna raises several
questions about the team.
Walton will have revenge on
their mind and could host a
second round playoff game
on Tuesday if Pensacola
Catholic defeats Marianna
in their game in Marianna.
For Walton, it would be a
pick-your-poison situation.
If Marianna wins, it would
force Walton to travel and
play a team that the Braves
have already beaten twice,
while a Catholic win would
allow the Braves to stay at
home, but do you really want
Catholic to get another shot
against Walton with the last
two games being decided by
two points. Of course, if Wal-
ton loses to Chipley and
keep in mind they haven't
won a playoff game since
claiming the 1996 state
semi-final against Wildwood
- the question is moot.
PDL seems to have the
most favorable match-up
on Thursday. The Pirates
clubbed Blountstown in
PDL last season in the open-
ing round 65:36 and should
have no reason to fear a Ti-
ger squad that hasn't had
much experience in the play-
offs. The gloves will come off
in the second round when
PDL will likely have to trav-
el to Cottondale on Tuesday.
The Hornets should defeat
Baker and pack the home
fans in early for the Pirates
visit as this game should be
standing-'room-orily. The Pi-
rates are young and seem-
ingly healthy, so this game,
if it happens, is not to miss.
Paxton faces a Bethlehem
squad on Thursday that
beat the Bobcats 61-58 in
mid-November. I wouldn't
want to be the team that
had to come to Paxton for
a rematch, so the Wildcats
had better bring their A-
game in the opening round.
District 2 was stronger than
Paxton's district this year,
so the Bobcats are likely in
for a fight, with Graceville
almost assuredly getting a
chance to host the winner
of this contest on Tuesday
after they dispatch Rocky
Bayou. A win over Bethle-
hem gives Paxton six consec-
utive 20 win seasons for the
program, and the Bobcats
are 66-5 the'last six years at
home. The Bobcats should
win at home, but that trip
to Graceville (23-2) may not
be a pleasant experience on
Tuesday.

Paxton boys improve to 21-4


By PATRICK CASEY
Dan Geoghagan exploded
for 26 points as Paxton com-
pleted a season sweep of
Walton with a 65-49 victory
over the Braves in the regu-
lar season finale for both
teams.
Paxton got off to an excel-
lent start when Geoghagan
canned four long distance
bombs to propel the Bob-
cats to a 24-14 lead after
one quarter that they would
never relinquish.
Walton hung around for
most of the contest as Tar-
rell Bramlet scored 16 points
to keep the Braves in the
game, but no other Braves
player hit double figures as
the Bobcats used their size
and high percentage shoot-
ing to move to 21-4 as they
head into district tourna-
ment play.
Zack Vickers and Dem-
etrius Moore scored 18 and
16 points respectively as
the Bobcats held the lead
from the outset. The Bob-
cats, who 'are playing with-
out starters Shaq Jackson
and Colby Forehand due to
wrist injuries, hit 12-of-18
free throws while commit-
ting only eight turnovers in
posting the win.
Walton has lost three


games in a row, but the
Braves played one of their
best games of the year on
Tuesday night when Mari-
anna edged the Braves at
Walton 65-64.
James Towery went off
for 28 points in that contest
and the Braves built a six-
point lead late, only to see
R.J. Bowers make consecu-
tive three-point shots to tie
the contest in the final two
minutes of the game.
The Bulldogs size, like
Paxton, gave Walton trouble
on the boards as the Bulldogs
managed to hit just enough
free throws to avoid the up-
set. Walton's Paul McClure
took the ball the length of
the floor in the final seven
seconds of the game, but
his bank shot high off the
glass came off too hard and
deflected off the rim as time
expired.
McClure provided Walton
(14-11) with 12 points while
Deon Lee posted a career,
high 10 points in the loss.
Paxton had a little bet-
ter luck 'against Freeport on
Thursday as Zack Vickers
scored 31 points and Dem-
etrius Moore added 22 as
the Bobcats avoided a road
upset with a 64-57 win over
Freeport.


The Bobcats had only
three players score in the
contest as Tyler Garrett
added 11 points to complete
the Bobcats scoring.
Freeport (13-11), which
wrapped up the regular sea-
son with wins over Rocky
Bayou and East Hill during
the week, got a tremendous
performance from junior
Alex Newkirk as he scored
30 points with 21 coming in
the second half as the Bull-
dogs worked to rally.
Game notes: Walton is


13-22 against Marianna in
the last 35 meetings since
the 1990-91 season and have
now lost eight straight in
the series. Walton will face
South Walton in the semi-
final round of the District
1, Class 3A tournament in
Northview on Friday at 6
p.m. with the winner ad-
vancing to the state playoffs.
Paxton goes in as the top
seed in District 1 of Class
A and will host the tourna-
ment this week. The Bob-
cats are likely to meet Cen-

WALTON'S PAUL MCCLURE helped the Braves battle
the Bulldogs in a possible playoff preview as Marianna es-
caped with a 65-64 win on February 3.


South Walton girls, boys fall in soccer playoffs


By PATRICK CASEY
South Walton soccer
coach Danny Blain was a
busy man last week as h.e
coached a second-round girls
playoff game and a first-
round boys playoff game in
the span of 72 hours in cold
temperatures. South Wal-
ton's girls soccer team sur-
vived two halves of play and
two overtime periods against
the Pensacola Catholic soc-
cer team but could get past
the Crusaders when it came
to penalty kicks as the host
school defeated the Sea-
hawks 3-2 in a second round
Class 3A playoff game.
Catholic and South Wal-
ton had battled to a 2-2 tie.
and into a shootout in the
Region 1, Class 3A girls
soccer semifinals when 'the
Crusaders took the match
by posting a 3-2 margin in
penalty kicks. .
After a scoreless first half,


McWherter set up the open-
ing goal of the contest just
four minutes into the sec-
ond half as her corner kick
found Madeline Greskovich
in front of the near post for
the header and a goal.
The Crusaders struck
again two minutes later
when McWherter sent a
perfect shot through' the
box, just inside the left post
for a 2-0 lead.
South Walton mounted
their rally with 29 minutes
remaining in the game as
a Seahawks throw-in was
placed perfectly into the box,
bounced off a pairof Catho-
lic defenders and rolled into
the goal. Sarah Jane Logan,
the closest South Walton de-
fender was credited with the
goal. That momentum car-
ried South Walton for the
rest of the regulation, and
with 6 minutes remaining,
the Seahawks tied the game


PDL boys defeat Bethlehem

in regular season finale


on an Allie Wright penalty
kick.
Both overtime periods
went scoreless leading to
the penalty kicks finale
that ended South- Walton's
season with a 10-7-2 record
with four of the losses com-
ing to the Crusaders.
The South Walton boys
put up a valiant effort be-
fore falling to Florida High
in Tallahassee on Thursday
night 1-0 in frigid tempera-
tures. The Seminoles Chase
Varnadore, who also serves
as the football team's kick-
er, used his head to give his
team the win as his header
was, the only goal of, the
game. .i,
Florida High had not won
a playoff match since 1989,


its only boys soccer victory in
school history. Entering' the
game against the Seahawks
(5-11-1), the Seminoles had
a 1-5 record in post-season
play. The Seminoles (10-
8-3) faced 10 shots on goal
from South Walton and had
11-shots on South Walton's
goal, including one that hit
the cross bar.
"I felt we did have some
chances, but I felt that they
played a very good defensive
game," South Walton coach
Danny Blain said. "Defend-
ing, I think we played pretty
well," Blain added. "I think
we lacked a lot on the fin-,
ish tonight, but I think they
took a lot away from us. I
don't think they gave us
anything to finish."

The Ponce de Leon Pi-
rates improved to 10-16 on
the year as they closed out
the regular season with a
63-39 victory over Bethle-
hem on Thursday.
Brock Bishop led the Pi-

ing Wildcats. Tory Serigne
added 12 points and Ryan
Varner added 10 as the Pi-
rates held a 29-17 lead at

"They have helped the pro-
gram to winning records
the last two years and have
entertained the fans with
many memorable plays and
games over there careers
here."
Jackson and Bramlet are
both currently playing for
Jerry Hester on the Walton
basketball team and Jack-
son is expected to play base-
ball again this season before
he wraps up his career at
Walton.
The two players have
helped Walton to a 14-6 re-
cord over the last two sea-
sons and their career sta-
tistics rate some of the top
numbers to pass through the
school in the last decade.

Notes: Issac Jackson is one of only three running backs at Walton to .un for over 1,000
rushing yards since 1991 (Josh Nettles and Devlone Brown are the other two). Since 1992,
Jackson is second .only to Nettles in career rushing yards. Nettles had 3,674 to Jackson's
3,099. Jackson's 2008 rushing total of 1,306 is the 5th highest total in one season since
1992. Jackson's 256 rushing yards against Baker in 2008 is the top individual rushing
performance by a Walton running back since at least 1991, if not the Dexter McNabb era
in the 1980s. Jackson's 36 rushing totals is second only to Josh Nettles 46 Tds since 1992.
Issac's 16 rushing Tds in 2003 is third only to Devlone Brown's 22 in 1996 and Nettles 20
in 2005. Jackson had 14 career 100-yard rushing games or more. Jackson's 242 yards vs
Chipley and 256 yards vs Baker (498 total) is the most rushing yards by a Walton back in
consecutive games since at least 1991. Add in his 135 yards against Vernon, and Jackson's
633 rushing yards is the most in three straight games by a Walton running back since at
least the 1980s.

Kendall Nelson's 4,077 and Robbie Morse's 3,599 passing yards, both quarterbacks at Wal-
ton since 1992. Bramlet's 41 career TD passes is likely third only to Rouhlac'and Pope's as
well. Bramlet's completion percentage of 56.93 trails Rouhlac's 57.91 by one percent.

L.L.C.'s proposal had been
to replace buildings on the
landmark Seagrove Villas
hotel/motel property, lo-
cated at 3031 CR-30A, with
condominiums, along with a
beach club. The facility was


to serve owners and guests
from the NatureWalk at
Seagrove Beach subdivision
and other beach club mem-
bers, NatureWalk being a
153-acre development about
1 1/2 miles to the north on
CR-395.
Included in the proposal
for the 1.21-acre Seagrove
Villas property were a
66,736-square-foot devel-
opment consisting of 18
condominium units, the
4,233-square-foot beach
club, a restaurant, bar, and
decks.
The request had been
hotly debated by commis-
sioners, and much input,


pro and con, had been re-
ceived from neighbors of the
proposed development. This
proposal and another in ear-
ly 2007, the Redfish Village
beach access, had brought
to the forefront the issue of
beach facilities for the use
of nonbeachfront develop-
ments and these facilities'
potential impacts on sur-
rounding residential uses.
The commission approval
of NatureWalk Beach Club
had been a narrow one, 3-2,
with Sara Comander, Dis-
trict 4 Commissioner, and
then-District 5 Commission-
er Cindy Meadows voting
no after lengthy discussion.


Commissioners Scott Bran-
non, Larry Jones, and Ken
Pridgen had voted in favor.
"This is a train wreck, in
my opinion," Meadows had
commented, also warning
that approval would set a
precedent "that we will live
to regret."
The 1.21-acre Seagrove
Villas property is within
a Neighborhood Planning
Area (NPA)/Residential
Preservation land use area.
The existing commercial use
is considered legally vested
but not in conformance with
the Walton County Land

meeting

By LEAH STRATMANN
A very efficient South
Walton Fire District (SWFD)
board whipped through a
short agenda in just over
30 minutes at the monthly
meeting on Feb. 2, and the
treasurer's report revealed
assets of $11.4 million.
Attorney Fiona DeSpain,
sitting in for board attorney
Lori Bytell, told the com-
missioners the two proper-
ties they are trying to lease
on CR-393 and CR-395
have amended leases in the
hands of potential renters,
but nothing has been heard
from either interest group.
Chairman Maurice Gil-
bert noted the district has
been getting calls about
the vacant properties and
one of the properties had
been shown recently. "We
cannot go forward in good
faith without some response
from these people," he said.
DeSpain suggested a letter
be sent to the prospective
renters with a 10 business
day deadline to act. It was
a unanimous decision of the
board to take this action.
The chiefs report by Rick
Talbert showed a total of
255 action calls in January,
including 36 fire calls, 146
medical calls, one beach res-
cue, 49 fire alarm responses,

Questions answered about proposed park closing


By LEAH STRATMANN
At the last meeting of
the Coastal Dune Lakes
Advisory Board (CDLAB) a
member of the South Wal-
ton Community Council
(SWCC) informed the group
the state had slated a num-
ber of parks in northwest
Florida to be temporarily
closed as a means of sav-
ing money. The eight parks
represent 24 percent of the
parks in the northwest part
of the state, the highest per-
centage state wide. Overall,
the state plans to close 19
parks.
Jessica Kemper, informa-
tion director for the Florida
Park Service said in an e-
mail, "The total cost sav-
ings to the Division of Rec-
reation and Parks for the
proposed closure of 19 parks
and transfer of three is
$1,910,920. This represents
approximately 24 percent of
the division's 10 percent re-
duction proposal."
Kemper said, "When com-
piling the list of proposed
temporary closures, atten-
dance and revenue were
carefully examined. No spe-
cific region was targeted to
contain a majority of the
closures. These parks were
chosen based on low visita-
tion numbers and revenue
compared to relatively high
operating budgets. If closed,
these parks will remain un-


der the supervision of a full-
time caretaker. Where fea-
sible, the department will
do everything in its power
to retain displaced staff in
other agency positions."
Deer Lake State Park
does not charge an entry fee,
nor is there a registration
book, making attendance
and use of the park difficult
to determine. Kemper said
the budget for this park is
$45,479, which includes the
cost of a ranger and ben-
efits, although park visitors
say there is never a ranger
present. Queried about this,
Kemper said, "Deer Lake
State Park is taken care of
under the management of
Grayton Beach State Park.
Currently, one ranger is as-
signed to Deer Lake State
Park and other staff from
Grayton Beach tend to the
park as necessary."
Grayton Beach is charged
more than $167,000 for
salaries and benefits, plus
a myriad of other expens-
es, for a total. budget of
$451,651 annually. Kemper
said none of the rangers at
parks due'to close will lose
their jobs, but would instead
be given the option to trans-
fer to other parks. Funding
for seasonal workers would
be eliminated or reduced.
"State parks will continue
providing high quality ser-
vice to the public while de-

creasing expenditure where
possible. We fully intend to
re-open the 19 parks poten-
tially facing closure when
the state's economy im-
proves. While this was a dif-
ficult decision, the proposal
reflects our effort to reduce
expenditure while protect-
ing the greatest number of
staff members," Kemper
wrote.
It was the consensus of
the CDLAB to approach the
county about taking over
the park if it closed. Kem-
per said none of the parks
would officially close until
the measure is deliberated
by the state legislature and
it was therefore premature
to consider options, such
as takeover by the county.
Members of the SWCC had
suggested an honor system


of park fee payments plus
a registration book so that
park usage could be calcu-
lated.
The legislative session
begins March 3. If the leg-
islature agrees to the clo-
sures, it will then have to
be approved by the gover-
nor. The 19 parks on the
list are: Yellow River Marsh
Preserve State Park, Santa
Rosa County; St. Marks Riv-
er State Park, Leon County;
Lake June-In-Winter Scrub
State Park, Highlands
County; Pumpkin Hill Creek
Preserve State Park, Nas-

DRB OKs sign


exception


By DOTTYNIST *

A monument or wall-type
sign identifying two busi-
nesses was approved as an
exception by the' Walton
County Scenic Corridor De-
sign Review Board (DRB) on
Feb. 5, representing a first
for that board.
The DRB reviews devel-
opment and. sign proposals
for the U.S. 98 and CR-30A
scenic corridors with regard
to aesthetics-related aspects
such as architectural design,
color, and landscaping.
Aplanforthe 56.9-square-
foot sign was submitted by
John Himes of Himes Signs.
The sign was proposed for
the parcel where the Fab-
ric Source and Destin Lock-
smith businesses are locat-
ed at 9525 and 9535 U.S.
98 West in Miramar Beach.
Proposed lettering ori the
sign was for the words "Win-
dow Covering Center" to be
displayed for Fabric Source
and "Locksmith" to be dis-
played for Destin Lock-
smith. The sign plans were
determined to meet Walton
County Land Development
Code standards for the sce-
nic corridor in all regards
except for the number of
businesses identified.
Board member Sue Grill
noted that, the board had


never approved a monument
sign displaying the name of
more than one business.
Himes presented the
board members with a
photo of a monument sign
on property adjacent to the
fabric store and locksmith
listing two businesses. He
also spoke to the need for
the county's regulations to
change with regard to the
number of business names
that can be displayed on
monument signs. He noted
that many local businesses
are failing and laid some of
the blame for that on strin-
gent sign regulations.
Board member Bob John-
son strongly rejected the ar-
gument that sign regulations
are contributing to business
failure. However he said he
did not see a problem with
the two businesses identify-
ing themselves on one sign
as an alternative to them
each putting up a separate
sign on the parcel.
Board member Tim Nor-
ris agreed that some flex-
ibility by theboard was ad-'
visable in the matter.,
Norris then moved for
approval of the-sign as pro-
posed, as an exception to
scenic corridor signage stan-
dards.
The motion was approved
unanimously.

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


Math has never been my
strong suit. At one time I
had the SAT scores to prove.
it, lopsided though they
were. Scoring nearly perfect
on the verbal portion, I could
not even make it to the half-
way mark on the other. Tru-
ly one of those people with
one dominant side of the
brain. Nevertheless.,I. have
managed to get through life
because I do have a firm
grasp on the fundamentals
of all'math, which is adding,
subtracting, division and
multiplication.
A few years ago when I
was self-employed, I didn't
save nearly enough money
to pay the Internal Revenue
Service. To my great chagrin
I learned. the IRS fees -and
penalties add up to what
amounts to usury. Ponder-
ing how to pay this not-so-
insignificant sum, I started
to look at the junk mail that
filled my mailbox.
At least once a week some
credit card company would
solicit my business. The of-
fers were enticing. Big lines
of credit were offered with
no interest from six months,
to up to more than a year. As
my tax debt increased daily,
I applied for one of the cards
and borrowed enough mon,-
ey to pay the IRS. The credit
card company. thoughtful-'
ly sent the check right to
them.
What followed was a
game. As soon as the period
of no interest approached,
I transferred the balance
to another credit card offer
that had appeared. Over the
course of three years,-I paid
no interest on a large sum of
money until I owed nothing.
The cards lived in a drawer
and I made sure never to
be late, because then they
would slam you not only
charging some money for
being late, but hiking the
interest rate up to whatever
the traffic would bear. In
this case I was able to bor-


row my way out of debt, but
this is also how the credit
card people got themselves
in a jam.
As I see it, myself and
every other. American now
owns Citibank and Bank of
America, just to name two.
If on top of paying them to
continue to be bad business
people, you also.owe them
money, it must be hard to
write a check every month.
I wonder how many people
have simply stopped? Clear-
ly there is no incentive to
pay bills, when the compa-
nies you owe money to can-
not pay their debts.
I'm no financial genius,
but I do know massive un-
employment means less
money being paid into Medi-
care and the tax system. If
the stimulus -package was
focused solely on putting
people back to work so they
could contribute to national
coffers and feed families
and keep a roof over them,
I wouldn't question it. I'll be
long dead before these huge
expenditures come home to
roost for the next several
generations. I'm mystified
by those 'parts of the pack-
age that have nothing to do
jobs or keeping schools open,
and the fundamentals. We
learn when we are two and
playing with building blocks
that the foundation must be
solid and strong.
Somebody somewhere
must understand how a
package like this would ac-
tually work, but it wasn't
explained to me this morn-
ing on "Meet the Press" and
nothing I ,have 'read sheds
any light on it. We continue
to fund a very costly war and
ironically, the armed ser-
vices are hiring, but few are
lining up for those positions.
Really, where does the mon-
ey come from? If somebody
can explain it to me, shoot
me an electronic message to
leahwrites@gmail.com.

Our dad and his father
and brothers were builders,
as was our great-grandfa-
ther. Johnston was their
last name and they were
adamant that the "T" was
: always in it!
These days, in research-
ing genealogy, it some-
times doesn't matter that
much; some spelled it with
or without and could still
be kin. I have noticed also
that way back in our grand-
S parents' day and beyond
.- people, spelled a name like
it 'sounded' even doctors
writing birth certificates, for
instance.
Our dad and his broth-
ers spent a summer build-
ing houses and a hotel down
at Grayton Beach, in south
Walton County. I think
" some are still standing.
....................... There was a little cabin
we stayed in that summer
emitted to and, as a small as I was
Board on at that time (3 or 4), I can
ment sign still remember the bright-
ed by the ness of the sand, that salt
water smell and the roar of
the Gulf not far away. Our
cabin was surrounded by
| sand dunes- and low-grow-
1I ing vegetation and "Bonzai-
type" trees. The magnolia
ays blossoms always bring back
those memories.
That's where we played or
al for up- under the house built high

Mama took live "broiler"
chickens down with us in
a coop and each one was
tied with a string to its leg
"staked out." No refrigera-
tion, back then. My favorite
spot was under the magno-
lias with them where they
became my "pets." Of course,
their purpose was to provide
fried chicken on occasion
but I just couldn't chew it.
Our uncle drove us down
on his old. Model 'A' Ford
and from Freeport, (Jolly
Bay) to Point Washington,
we rode on a ferry boat over
Choctawhatchee Bay.
There were very few
paved roads back then and.
even earlier, when cars
met on the two-rut road, it
meant one had to pull aside
while the other passed, then
all had to push that one out
of the deep soft sand.
We went several times
after the summer we lived
there and I well-remember
trying to drink that awful-
tasting and smelling sul-
fur water. Thank goodness,
there were soft drinks by
then sold in old filling sta-
tions and grocery stores -
Coca-Colas, Orange Crush
and Moon Pies!,
Most of the time, we lit-
tle children had to share a
drink "too much for one,"
they'd say.
The last time we rode the
ferry, they were building the
first bridge over the Bay!

To all those first-time Walton County Snowbirds, the
seriously-cold weather that we recently survived is not the
usual fare for the Florida Panhandle. We are all looking
forward to the week ahead with daytime highs reaching the
70s for the first time in a long while.
The next general meeting will take place on'Wednes-
day, February 11, at the Linkside Conference Centre in the
Sandestin Resort at 10 a.m. Be sure to attend and enjoy the
sounds of Tall Cotton and possibly win a draw prize. At this
general meeting, snowbirds may also pick up a ticket on the
bicycle raffle, whose proceeds will support a local scholar-
ship for needy students. The drawing will take place at the
end of the meeting.
The final Snowbird signup will take place at the Faith
Assembly Hall on Monday February 9 from 8:30-10:30 a.m.
It appears that total registration for the year will be down
by about 200 people as the economy and the Canadian-dol-
lar appear to be taking their toll.
Eunice Collins (650-1546) has a few spots remaining for
the final Casino trip to Biloxi on February 18. Be sure to
sign up at the Monday. registration or give Eunice a call.
Remember, if anyone signs up and doesn't show, they have
kept someone on the waiting list from going and have pre-
vented WCS from having a full bus, which hurts the bus
company and the Casino.
There are very few tickets remaining for the Ladies' Lun-
cheon which will take place at the Embassy Suites on Feb.
26. Tickets cost $27 and include a fashion show sponsored
by Coldwater Creek, lunch and a complimentary refresh-
ment. "Fashions with Friends" will start at 11:30 a.m. and
will probably run till well past 2 p.m. Call Nancy Cosgrove
(269-2773) or Eunice Collins (650-1546) for tickets or pick
them up at the registration on Monday, Feb. 9.
At print time it would appear that the dinner/dance on
February 23 at the Embassy Suites has a waiting list. To
get more information on this popular event, call Bob Swen-
son at 837-5558 or inquire at Monday's registration.
The Art, Knitting and Crafters groups are now settled
and well underway at their various sites. Check www.wal-

ers will present a final concert on Feb. 28, 2009 at 3 p.m.
at the Santa Rosa Community Church on the north side of

Movie review: "New in Town" a cold start that finally thaws


By BRUCE COLLIER
Jonas Elmer's romantic
comedy "New in Town" gets
off to a slow start, not quite
sure whether it wants to
be funny or just sluggishly
mean-spirited. The fish-out-
of-water premise is a famil-
iar one. A city girl tackles a
tricky management job in
a small Minnesota commu-
nity, finding culture shock
.and possible love.
Renee Zellweger plays
Lucy Hill, an ambitious
Miami career woman who
volunteers to turn around
a moribund manufacturing
plant in frozen New Ulm,
Minnesota. Lucy is gunning
for advancement, and hopes
to use this task as an oppor-
tunity to show her superiors
she's v.p. material. What
begins for Lucy as a list of
meaningless names and fig-
ures on a page turns into a
collection of small-town citi-
zens, complete with funny
Minnesota accents, secret
tapioca recipes, and flannel
everything. Her hosts offer
her meat loaf dinners, invite
her to scrap-booking par-
ties, and casually ask her if
she's found Jesus.
And then there's Ted
Mitchell (Harry Connick
Jr.), a local union rep who's

plant's grumpy foreman,
Stu. These four actors are
no strangers to quirky com-
edy. It may just have been
the screenplay, but the ini-
tial feeling I got was not-so-
funny discomfort.
The townspeople know
why Lucy has. come, and are
justifiably worried about
their jobs. Still, their initial
reception is more nasty than
funny, like a practical joke
that goes too far. The air of
general heaviness persists
until the inevitable break-
through incident. Lucy's
car slides into a snowdrift
and Ted (a part-time fire de-
partment worker) comes to
her rescue. She's comically.
tipsy, he's a perfect gentle-
man, and the movie finally
decides to lighten up and de-
liver the goods.
At that point, "New in
Town" achieves the balance
the audience paid to see.
Over-stressing the towns-
people's eccentricity would
have given the movie a Coen


Brothers weirdness. If Lucy
had been too hard-edged, no
one would want to see her
inflicted on a nice guy like
Ted, a widower and father
of a prd-teen daughter. Once
the thaw begins, Lucy and
the New Ulmites gradually
drift together, to the point
where Lucy is actively pur-
suing ways to keep the plant
viable, despite the risk to
her own career. The movie is
only about 90-some minutes
long, so the soul-searching
and suspense are kept mov-
ing at a brisk pace, to the
everybody-wins ending.
Renee Zellweger is one
of those actresses who
shouldn't be sexy, but some-
how is. It may possibly be
her diminutive size strug-
gling to help her with a
stuck zipper, Connick flips


and folds her like a doll or
her exotic, slightly Asian
facial features. Or it could
be .that odd, tippy-tapping
little walk she does in her
Jimmy Choo heels, like a
new-groomed poodle. The
lanky Connick employs his
New Orleans boy drawl
winningly. Hogan is a good-
hearted pest, and Simmons
is a boilermaker-sipping
bear, sneering at Lucy's ef-
ficiency and calling his ex-
wife "an old hoot owl."
There's little in the way
of Oscar material here, but
"New in Town" is a work-
manlike start to this month's
string of Valentine's Day
date flicks. You may feel the
urge to stop at the store on
the way home and pick up
some tapioca. Music isn't
the only food of love.

Every year about this
time, parades roll, beads
are thrown and the
South becomes the
center of attention for
other things besides
hurricanes and sultry
weather. Mardi Gras is'
in full swing-around the
Southeast and every
corner of the Gulf Coast
is getting involved.

For cities such as New
Orleans and Mobile,
parades, krewe balls and
other Mardi Gras events
have been going on since
mid-January. But with the
second .full week of
February, the ball really
gets rolling and the South
is painted with green,
purple and gold, the official
colors of Mardi Gras. "
All the excitement
builds over the next ,few
weeks, until Fat Tuesday,
which this year falls on
Tuesday, Feb. 24. Leading
up to the final day of Mardi-
Gras and the first day of
the Catholic observance of
Lent, the nation can see
just how the South brings
in the new year and.,
celebrates the challenges
and accomplishments of the
states and its people.
Close to home, the
celebration gets a boost
when the Krewe of
Chautauqua Mardi, Gras
Gala takes place on Feb. 19
at the Hotel DeFuniak
ballroom. Guests will be
dressed in masks, tuxedos,
formal evening wear and
costumes, while nibbling on
an array of hors d' oeuvres
and dancing to'a variety of
live Cajun, Zydeco and jazz.
The event is the
kick-off of the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly
which runs from Feb. 19 -
March 1, all over the city of
DeFuniak Springs. It is

My two dogs are missing from the Juniper Lake area. I'm
certain they are together. One is a male White English
Bulldog with a brown area around his tail. The other is a
female American Dingo. She is tan with some white on
her chest. She is wearing a worn pink collar and tends to
be somewhat shy. He is not'wearing a collar.

If you have my dogs or have seen them please call
850-797-4169 (days) or 850-529-4458 (evenings).
There is a REWARD for their return.
NO questions asked, just let them come home.

am at the South Walton Courthouse
Annex in Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.
The following items are scheduled for re-
view and action:

1. SEASIDE TOWN CENTER 30A
IMPROVEMENTS Project number
S09-001-00001. This is a minor develop-
ment order application submitted by Em-
erald Coast Associates for Seaside Town
Center. Improvements consist of parking
apron improvements, tree plantings, 327
square feet of commercial space, and a
brick paved plaza on 1.17 acres with a
future land use of NPA/RPA. The project
is at 2235 East C.R.30A, within a com-
mercial area of the Seaside Development
of Regional Impact (parcel number 15-3S-
19-25000-002-OOAO).

2. CYBONEY RV PARK ABANDON-
MENT Project number 08-008-00005.
This is an abandonment application sub-
mitted by Robert Somerville. Members of
the Cyboney, LLC RV Park and property
owners request the abandonment of the
Payne Street easement running through
the RV Park, going east to west, per Deed
.Book 143, page 115. If the abandonment
is granted, they will dedicate a sfrip of land
approximately 8 feet x 329 feet, on the

lel to Professional Place and adjacent to

County.

3. PLANTATION SUBDIVISION
DEEDED EASEMENT ABANDONMENT


Project number 08-008-00004. This is
an abandonment application submitted
by Walton County. The Plantation deeded
easement abandonment consists of an
abandonment of the 50-foot easement
on either side of the centerline of the plat-
ted roads within Plantation Subdivision
recorded in 1978. The deeded ease-
ment is in OR Book 203, page 562, over
the 50-foot platted roads in the Planta-
tions Subdivision, per Plat Book 5, Page
22-22a. This abandonment serves to cor-
rect the typographical error, which should .

within Plantation Subdivision to comprise
.a 50-foot easement.

Statutes, whenever any board of commis-
sioner of any state agency or authority, or

son'.

decision made by the board, agency, or
commission with respect to any matter
considered at such meeting or hearing, he

ings, and that, for such purpose, he or she

FWC sorts through rule proposals at Sandestin


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) wrapped up
a two-day session Thursday,
Feb. 5, at Sandestin. During
the meeting, Commission-
ers voted on new rules for
Florida's quota hunt system
and changed .some marine
fishing regulations.
Beginning with the 2009-
2010 .hunting season, quota
hunt permits will be non-
transferable but allow a
guest permit for archery,
muzzleloading gun, gen-
eral gun, wild hog, mobil-
ity-impaired and spring
turkey hunts. In addition,
Commissioners approved
new regulations for various
wildlife management areas
(WMAs).
The Commission also ap-
proved new season dates
and regulations for public
hunting lands within the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes


CLUB


Development Code. The
code states: "No nonconfor-
mity shall be enlarged upon,
expanded, or extended un-
less such alteration is in full
compliance with all require-
ments of this code."
The applicants had sought
approval based on their as-
sertion that the use, den-
sity, and intensity of their
proposal were in compliance
with the original covenants
and restrictions on the prop-
erty.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, had com-
mented that, due to their
going that route, the bur-
den was on the applicants to
defend their proposal with
regard to covenants and re-
strictions, with the impacts
of the existing use serving
as a measure of compat-
ibility. Representing the ap-
plicants, attorneys George
Ralph Miller and Patrick
Hodges argued that ,case,
introducing property deeds
as evidence.
The deed evidence indi-
cated that the lots making
up the property in question
had been excepted from re-
strictions limiting their use
to residential.
Citizens Elton B. Ste-
phens, Jr., F. Dixon Brooke,
Jr., and Dell S. Brooke filed


and Babcock Rarich Pre-
serve.
Regarding marine fish-
eries, the Commission ap-
proved a rule that establish-
es a June 1 through Sept.
30 recreational red snapper
harvest season in Gulf of
Mexico state waters. This
action is consistent with the
current red snapper season
in Gulf federal waters.
. Commissioners also ap-
proved a new rule to reduce
the number of traps used in
the lobster fishery. The rule
change will end a five-year
moratorium on the reduc-
tion of lobster traps in Flor-
ida. However, the number
of traps will be reduced only
when a commercial lobster
harvester decides to sell or
transfer his FWC-issued
trap certificates to someone
outside his immediate fam-
ily. The new rule will al-
low the harvester to sell or


transfer all but 10 percent
of those certificates. The
new rule takes .effect on July
1.
The FWC also approved
rules to add new fish and
invertebrate species to ma-
rine life (aquarium species)
regulations and 'establish
and change size and bag
limits' and gear specifica-,
tions for several marine life-
species. The new rules also
make other administrative
and technical marine life
rule changes. These rules
take effect on July 1.
Another inew rule ap-
proved by the Commis-
sion will help in efforts to
identify and remove lost or
abandoned blue crab traps
from Florida waters. It will
establish six regional closed
seasons to the' harvest of
blue crabs (up to 10 days)
with traps. That will en-
able authorized people and


groups to clean up trap de-
bris left in the water during
the closed seasons. This rule
takes effect on July 1.
In other marine fisher-
ies action, Commissioners
proposed a draft rule that
would establish adminis-
trative penalties for blue.
crab management program
violations and reviewed and
discussed managementI of
flounder and various federal
fisheries management is-
sues.' "
Commissioners also rec-
ognized Ed Moyer, who re-
tired from the FWC in 2008,
for his 35 years of service to
the agency, and,the Wildlife
Foundation of Florida pre-
sented its Louise Ireland
Humphrey Achievement
Award to Carol Knox, the
FWC's Manatee Program
administrator.
The next regular FWC
meeting will be April 15-16
in Tallahassee.

suit against Walton County
and Seagrove at the Beach
in May 2007, soon, after the
approval, challenging the
commission decision. Their
petition was to the appellate
division of,Walton County's
First Judicial Circuit. The
petitioners own homes in
the vicinity of the property
for which the beach club
was approved. The law firm
of Theriaque, Vorbeck and
Spain represented the Ste-
phens' and Brookes.
Attorney Gary Vorbeck
explained that his clients
challenged the commission
decision because they did
not believe the project was
in compliance with the Wal-
ton County Comprehensive
Plan and Land Development
Code.
Almost one year and nine
months after the county
commission decision was
challenged in court, Judge
LaPorte issued a decision
in favor of the homeown-
ers, stating that, with the
approval, "The (county) did
depart from the essential re-
quirements of the law."
La Porte wrote, "The key
issue upon which this mat-
ter turns is whether the
covenants and restrictions
established the lots in ques-
tion as commercial lots."
He continued, "Pat Black-


shear, county planner, indi-
cated in her testimony at
several locations that. the
'burden is on the applicant
and their legal staff to prove
the covenants and restric-
tions allowed for commer-
cial use of the property."
LaPorte then referenced
a deed presented in evi-
dence which lists the lots
in question as being among
those for which use is not re-
stricted to residential.
The judge observed that
the applicant "interpreted
this language to require
commercial use under the
deed covenants and restric-
tions," and that the county
planning staff and commis-
sion had, mistakenly in his
opinion, followed that argu-
ment.
"This is an incorrect read-
ing of the document. A clear
reading of the language in
the deed indicates these list-
ed lots have no specified use
or restrictions," the judge
continued.
"These lots are open lots
subject to no restrictions or
covenants and are subject
to the Walton County Land
Development Code and the
Comprehensive Plan, he
stated.
"The Court finds the Final
Order of Respondent (the
county) constitutes a de-


parture from 'the essential
requirements of law' as its
decision amounts to 'a viola-
tion of a clearly established
principle of law resulting in
a miscarriage .of justice',"
the judge ruled.
Judge LaPorte concluded
by declaring the BCC deci-
sion "hereby quashed."
More than 500 homes had
been planned for the Na-
tureWalk subdivision, but
few lots were sold, and the
subdivision infrastructure
is incomplete.
The state Division of
Corporations lists the status
of both NatureWalk Devel-
opment. Company, L.L.C.,
owner of the bulk of the 153-
acre development property,
and Seagrove at the Beach,
L.L.C., as inactive. The divi-
sion lists Richard Olson of
Olson & Associates of North-
west Florida as registered
agent for both corporations..
In 2005,NatureWalk De-
velopment Company, L.L.C.,
established the NatureWalk
Community Development
District, encompassing the
development 'property, for
the stated purpose of "deliv-
ering community develop-
ment services and facilities"
for the district.

The Seagrove Villas prop-
erty is currently for sale.

Camellia Festival celebrated at Eden Gardens


By JEFFREY POWELL
According to Friends of
Eden officials, well over 300
people enjoyed near-perfect
weather on Feb. 7, while at-
tending the Eden Gardens
State Park Camellia Festi-
val. The event allowed visi-
tors to see and learn about
the hardy camellia plants
which thrive on the park's
grounds. Demonstrators
also exposed attendees to the
arts of candle-making, lye
soap making, the turpentine
industry and canrellia wax-
ing. Additionally, retired
nursery owner and camel-
lia expert Manson Markette
was on hand throughout the


day to speak about the va-
riety and care of the plants.
Markette has been inter-
ested in plants and flowers
since he was a child and has
a special interest in the ca-
mellia.
"The Gulf Coast is perfect
for the camellia," Markette
said enthusiastically. "They
love humidity and sandy
soil with good drainage.
They just about take care of
themselves.".
According to Markette
the English first brought the
camellia from China to the
Charleston, SC. area. The
plant was later introduced
to areas farther south and


California. Camellias are
.closely related to tea plants
and although it is gener-
ally a relatively low-mainte-
nance plant, Eden Gardens
has recently had trouble
with an insect known as tea
scale.
"The situation with the
tea scale is desperate," said
Markette. "Every plant in
the park is involved, some-
thing must be done to help
these plants."
Friends of Eden Grounds
Committee Chairwoman
Jane Angner echoed Mar-
kette's concerns. "We need
to completely spray the un-
dersides of these plants,"


said Angner. "The insects
rob the camellias of much-
needed nutrients and if left
unchecked will irretrievably
damage the plants. We are
in a fund-raising mode in
hopes of eliminating the in-
sect."
Persons interested in
assisting in the effort can
make a cash donation di-
rectly or visit the park's
nursery and pick out one of
several varieties of plants.
The plants are technically
not for sale, but there is a
suggested donation amount
for each plant.
Those seeking donation
information may contact
Angner at (850) 654-5783.
