KEN LITTLE (center) Terry Dawkins (right) and Cathy Mosley (left) begin the campaign
to "Take Stock in the Clock" with their first stop being the DeFuniak Springs City Council
meeting on Feb 23.


By ALICIA LEONARD
During the Feb. 23 De-
Funiak Springs City Coun-
cil meeting, the Council
approved a land purchase,
heard the results of their
yearly audit and got a peek
at the "Take Stock in the
Clock" project that aims at
restoring the First National
Bank Clock.
Ken Little, Terry Dawk-
ins and Cathy Mosley pre-
sented a video presenta-
tion to the Council at a new
project aiming at getting


residents to take stock in re-
pairing the quickly deterio-
rating historic clock located
on Baldwin Avenue.
The project asked that
residents help with restoring
the timepiece by purchasing
a piece of stock in the clock.
The group, made up of mem-
bers of the Walton County
Heritage Association, is ask-
ing citizens to invest $125

Morrison Springs Park Set to re-open Feb. 26


Morrison Springs Park is
scheduled to re-open Thurs-
day, Feb. 26, at 11 a.m.,
following a year of renova-
tions. Walton County Com-
missioner Scott Brannon
will lead a ribbon-cutting
ceremony with other lo-
cal and state leaders who
worked to secure the nec-.
essary funding for the mil-
lion-dollar renovation proj-
ect. The public is invited to
attend.
Morrison Springs is one
of the most popular diving
spots in northwest Florida
and well-known through-
out the southeast. This 161-
acre park was acquired by
the state in 2004 and has
been leased to the county
to maintain and preserve.
The highlight of the park is
a 250-foot diameter spring


pool that produces an esti-
mated 48 million gallons of
crystal clear water each day
and has been recorded to
produce up to 70 million gal-
lons a day. Three cavities al-
low Morrison's frigid waters
to surface from the under-
ground aquifer. The deepest
of these cavities, at approxi-
mately 300 feet in depth,
eventually terminates in
an underground chamber of
unknown dimensions.
The new Morrison
Springs Park includes large
boardwalks overlooking the
springs, a diving dock and
a new boat ramp away from
the diving location. Handi-
cap parking makes acces-
sibility to the boardwalks
and beach area easier, and
bus parking enables large
groups to explore and enjoy

the new park amenities. Re-

park more convenient and

planned as part of ongoing
park improvements. In ad-
dition to thousands of dol-
lars in volunteer time by
Cliff Knauer, P.E. of Pre-
ble-Rish, Inc. and county
staff resources, $500,000

park is from a Northwest

"Grit & Grace" in transitional state


By DOTTY NIST
Plans for Walton County's
annual folklife production,
"Grit & Grace," are tem-
porarily on hold due to the
production having recently
become part of the Cultural
Arts Association of Walton
County, Inc. (CAA).
Formed in the mid-1990s,
the CAA was designated last
year by Walton County and
the,state of Florida as the
county's official local arts
agency. "Grit & Grace" has
been underway since 1999.
CAA Executive Director
Jennifer Steele Saunders
said "Grit & Grace" board


members had approached
the CAA about the possibil-
ity of becoming associated
with the organization. The
"Grit & Grace" board mem-
bers, all volunteers, saw
the need for assistance with
leadership and administra-
tive functions associated
with the production, and
for a "home base" she ex-
plained. Saunders said the
CAA viewed this as a great
opportunity to pursue its
mission of being an umbrel-
la organization for the arts
through leadership, advo-
cacy, funding, programs and
education.


Saunders said space is
currently being set up for a
"Grit & Grace" office at the
CAA headquarters and that
a transition team created
for "Grit & Grace" has be-
gun meeting.
She explained that plans
are for the "Grit & Grace"
board members to be in-
volved as a production com-
mittee which will be respon-
sible for the play itself.
Funding for "Grit &
Grace" is now part of the
CAA budget, Saunders said,
and the CAA and the "Grit
& Grace" board members
will share fund-raising and


volunteer-seeking responsi-
bilities.
Saunders said the CAA
is proud to assist in keeping
the "Grit & Grace" tradition
going. "It would be a shame
to lose it," she commented.
She was hopeful that com-
ing under the CAA umbrella
would increase volunteer
participation for the Walton
County history production.
No date has been set for
the next production of "Grit
& Grace," nor has a theme
or venue been selected, but
Saunders promised more
information following deci-
sions on those matters.

County.

Former and current can-
cer patients, their families,
businesses, civic organiza-
tions, and the public are

but with a new twist. Relay
For Life is a family-oriented
event where participants
enjoy the camaraderie of a

churches, organizations,
hospitals, and schools col-
lect donations and can win
individual and team prizes
for their efforts.
"Relay For Life brings the
progress against cancer to
the forefront," said Jennifer
Christensen, event chair.
"Many participants are our


family, friends, and neigh-
bors who have dealt with
cancer themselves. Their
involvement is proof of the
progress that has been not
only reducing death rates,
but also increasing the qual-
ity of life following cancer
treatment.
"The funds raised enable
us to continue our invest-
ment in. the fight against
cancer through research,
education, advocacy, and
patient services," said Ms.
Christensen. "Thanks to

Probation and parole re-entry

and resource fair held in DFS


By JEFFREY POWELL
Dozens of vendors joined
Florida Department of Cor-
rections (FDOC) officials in
conducting a probation and
parole re-entry and resource
fair on Friday, Feb. 20. The
well- attended event was
held at the Northwest Flor-
ida State College Chautau-
qua Neighborhood Center
in DeFuniak Springs. The
fair was the first of its kind
in Walton County and plans
are in the works for future
events.
According to FDOC Dep-
uty Circuit Administrator
Rick Sanders, building more
and larger prisons may not
be the solution to Florida's


prisoner revolving-door
problems.
"We have to come to the
realization that financially
we cannot keep building
more prisons," said Sand-
ers. "If we can do anything
to prevent prisoner recidi-
vism it will help society and
save taxpayer dollars."
FDOC Correctional Pro-
bation and Parole Supervi-
sor Dusty Allison echoed
Sanders' concerns.
"If this endeavor is suc-
cessful these people will be-
come a positive contribution
to society and productive
members of society," said
Allison. "Most of the people
on probation or parole have


no idea where to turn. By
putting these vendors in one
place we hope to assist them
in being successful."
Vendors on hand varied
from civic organizations to
law enforcement personnel,
each with the idea of help-
ing citizens on probation or
parole become assimilated
into life outside the realm of
the FDOC.
Attendees of the fair were
treated to a lunch provided
by local restaurants as well
as soft drinks and dessert.
"The community support
has been tremendous," said
Allison. "We would like to
thank all our vendors and
the college for their help."

and Goodwill Easter Seals were on hand for Friday's resource fair. (Photo by Jeffrey Pow-

ACT Walton plans for future

consumers a sharp con-

which featured almost all
consumers. This divide is
just one of the challenges

ing the group.

vealed primary complaints
about a. lack of variety at

fresh produce stands and a
lack of consistency. Zamoj ski
noted south Walton County
residents were really look-
ing for a farmer's market,
but didn't want to have to
drive to DeFuniak Springs
to shop, while those in De-
Funiak Springs don't want
to drive to Seaside for the
farmer's markets planned to
begin there in late March.
The farmer's markets
scheduled in Seaside from
March 28 through Labor
Day are through the efforts
of Grow Some Roots, a fledg-
ling group of people led by
Jenifer Kuntz and Dan Bai-
ley formed a year ago to sup-
port local agriculture and
merchants. The third mem-
ber of the crew is Eric Mar-
cus who, as a photographer,
will act as historian for the
group.
"It's about supporting the
local community and cre-
ating a more sustainable
lifestyle across the board,"
Kuntz said. She noted that
Bailey owns a Seaside coffee
shop billed as a "fair trade"
coffee shop because the buy-
ers deal directly with the
coffee growers, thereby pay-
ing the growers a fair wage
for the product by cutting
out the middleman.
"A central location would
be ideal for both ends of the
county, but a regular sched-


ule is needed, parking has to
be adequate and a variety of
produce should be available.
Hammock Bay and Owl's
Head have both expressed
interest in allowing a mar-
ket on their properties,"
Zamojski said. "A market-
ing campaign is needed to
point out the importance of
buying locally and to put out
the words to the community
about 'what is available,"
she said. To that end,, an.
ACT Walton page has been
started on Facebook and
the Grow Some Roots group
has agreed the two groups
should work together on
marketing.
In addition, ACT Walton
plans to communicate with
the .South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC), the Chamber of Com-
merce and the Economic De-
velopment Council to see if
these entities can be of as-
sistance.
Luke Langford, who has
a small farm and cattle op-
eration, said he would put
out the word on what he
has available on Facebook.
"We are just getting into
the growing season. I will
post that and see if we can
develop a dialog," he said.
Through Facebook, grow-
ers can post what they have
available and consumers
can get in touch and place

* Langford said the last
week of May would be a
good time for ACT Walton to
schedule the first farmer's
market. He also suggested
that from week to week an
information board be avail-
able so growers can indi-
cate what produce would
be available the following
week. "This would add some
consistency to it," he said.
The north-south divide
continues to be a prob-
lem, even in the schedul-
ing of meeting. While the
next meeting is scheduled
for March 17 at 3 p.m. the
location has not been de-
termined. Zamojski is look-
ing into finding space in
Freeport, which is roughly
halfway for both ends of the
county, otherwise the meet-
ing will be held in the Coast-
al Branch Library.
"This farmer's market is-
sue has died over location
once before. North won't
drive south, south won't
drive north and nothing
happens," Langford noted.

Looking



out for



a neighbor


By RON KELLEY


According to the latest reports, the first three squadrons
of F-35s with at least 59 aircraft will be formed at Eglin
Air Force Base, between 2010, when the first aircraft ar-
rives, and mid-2013 when No. 60 is due. Of the three train-
ing squadrons to be established, one will be U.S. Air Force
with 24 conventional takeoff aircraft, one will be Marine
Corps with 20 short-takeoff-and-vertical-landing aircraft
and the last, with 15 aircraft, will belong to the Navy.
The Air Force's decision involves temporary operational
limitations on flight training to minimize noise impact in
the nearby town of Valparaiso, which has voted to file suit
against the air base. Meanwhile, supplemental environ-
mental studies will be conducted as the Air Force works on
a final study on F-35 noise. ,
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is expected to be louder
than the F-15 and F-16 and about the same as the F/A-18E/
Fs and F-22s, says USAF Maj. Gen.. Charles Davis, the cur-
rent F-35 program manager and the incoming commander
of Eglin's Air Armament Center.
As part of a two-tier, environmental agreement -- after
the first 59 aircraft are in place -- the Navy and the local
community will consider increasing the number of F-35
training aircraft on the base to 113, according to Davis.
Along with the integrated-pilot school house, all JSF main-
tenance training will be conducted at Eglin. The first Ma-
rine aircraft arrives in 2011. The fleet is expected to grow
at the rate of about one per month.
It's estimated that the preliminary construction alone
would have an economic impact of more than $250 million
dollars. That figure will only rise as time goes on.
The Valparaiso City Coqncil voted 3-0 to file suit against
Eglin because they believe the noise from the! F-35 will
make as many as "one-third of the homes there unlivable."
Mayor Bruce. Arnold said, "It's the death of our city if we
don't. The city could hot survive."
I'm not sure that's entirely accurate. I know that other
aircraft, just as loud at the F-35, are already flying in and
out of Eglin without any discernible noise problem. I know
that Deputy Assistant Secretary For Installations Kath-
leen Ferguson said that to keep down the noise impact for
Valparaiso, operations will be largely restricted to Eglin's
East-West runway. Later, the north-south runway may be
re-oriented away from the town and extended to the south
to allow limited use.
I also believe in the concept of caveat emptor or "Let the
buyer beware." If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
A foolish choice on someone else's part does not constitute
an emergency on my part.
When moving next to a busy air force base, knowing
whether or not your new house is sitting in the middle of
their runway flight path is one of those things that you have
to check on before you buy the house, It's like not bother-
ing to check on whether the roof leaks, or the garage door
works, or the wiring is substandard or whether the house is
in a flood zone or is next door to a fire station or the planned
site for a high-rise condo rental.
Eglin Air Force Base is one of the main economic driv-
ing forces in northwest Florida. We all fear BRAC decisions
that could take away vital Eglin components and impact
the entire Panhandle. Considering that this is the worst
moment in history to be deliberately curbing the local econ-
omy, I would call on the city council of Shalimar to re-think
its position. Eglin is a good neighbor. They are good stew-
ards of the land and their many test missions are directly
vital to the health and safety of our troops in Iraq, Afghani-
stan and around the world. They are our eyes in the sky,
too. Hundreds, even thousands of Walton County residents
have worked as civilians on base and many airmen return
here to retire with their families.
I recently had the pleasure of serving as the Honorary
Commander for the entire 96th Air Base Wing. Over the
year-long term, I met some extraordinary men and women,
toured the base, saw these servicemen and civilians iri ac-
tion. and I can tell you that Eglin AFB is in good hands.
From Col. McClintock, Col. LoCastro and Col. Van Decar to
Civilian Beth Woods and Chief Master Sgt. Troy Engholm,
I met some of the finest men and women in uniform.
They are good neighbors and it's time we remind all bur
friends at Eglin that we are good neighbors, too. Show your
support for Eglin with calls and letters to your U.S. con-


gressman and senator.
Let them know that above all we support Eglin Air
Force Base!

Editor:
News that a private company wants. to "help" Walton
County by widening U.S. 331 and the Choctawhatchee Bay
Bridge should give citizens pause.
This private company wants to turn U.S. 331 into a wid-
ened private toll road. That means motorists would be at
the mercy of largely unregulated price'increases to use a
road and Bay bridge they now drive on for free.
The proposal comes from a company founded by Den-
ver Stutler, who served as Gov. Jeb Bush's chief of staff
and then as Bush's Department of Transportation secre-
tary. Stutler's company approached the Northwest Florida
Transportation Corridor Authority Feb. 17 with an "un-
solicited proposal" to "design, build, operate, and finance
transportation facilities which will provide additional ca-
pacity for U.S. 331 in Walton County."
It is curious how this proposal just popped up out of no-
where. Developer Jay Odom, whose.3,000-acre Hammock
Bay development in Freeport would benefit from a pricey
new road, was quoted in the Northwest Florida Daily News
as saying, "In my book, this is a stimulus package. It's. a
half-billion-dollar stimulus that's not reliant on federal dol-
lars."
Really? A quick look at Florida DOT documents shows
that U.S. 331 is already teed up for federal stimulus'dol-
lars. On the DOT's official "Ready-To-Go" list of state proj-
ects eligible for federal stimulus money, there's more than
$336 million worth of improvements to U.S. 331 and the
Choctawhatchee Bay bridge, right there, listed plain as
day. Walton County is listed as an officially-designated eco-
nomically distressed area, which gives it higher priority for
funding.
Citizens should be asking whether this private company
intends to draw down public money for private gain. It is
doubtful that these corporate folks are doing -this expen-
sive road work to be altruistic to the good people of Walton
County. And what will the citizens end up paying in the
long run? .
Odom is The N9rthwest Florida Transportation Corri-
dor Authority's vice chairman. This appointed group, es-
'tablished by Jeb Bush, has spent four years drawing routes
for fat new toll roads through our region. So far, this group


Editor,
My son has been involved in almost every theatrical event
at the Florida Chautauqua since we moved here in March
of 2003. As a result of his involvement with the theater, we
have been glad to pay what little was charged us and volun-
teer our time to such a great community organization. Be-
lieve me when I say "volunteer" because that is what we as
parents do at the Florida Chautauqua Theatre.
Looking back over the years our family has been involved
there at The Florida Chautauqua, I cannot think of any
greater experience in all of Walton County than our involve-
ment-here in DeFuniak Springs at the theatre. Beth Camp-
bell-Work is amazing and the children love and respect
her. She has an influence for good on every one of them. The
fact that they have such a close bond, are accepting of each
other even though their talents vary and keep in touch long
after the theatre doors, close, is a fact that no one in this
community can deny. Her efforts are greatly,appreciated by
our family and her talents will carry on in the life of our son
who simply "cannot wait" for his next rehearsal with her.
There is no denying that many children are served by
the efforts put forth by a dedicated board of directors who
serve this community without complaint because they see
the positive outcomes from the service that they give. There
is no other place in,.our community where our children can
explore the creative talents of drama and theater like they
can at the Florida Chautauqua. I am thankful for the cre-
ative insight that many people there had, long before our
arrival in DeFuniak Springs.
I admit that this letter should have come a long time ago
because we are sincerely thankful to the Florida Chautau-
qua Theater and that our gratitude to the board and to Beth
Campbell-Work, and thanks really should not follow 'such a
heated debate. Quite frankly, this article is one that could
have- and should have been dealt with privately. I'm not
even sure who this Ann Robinson person is and I have no
desire to publicly or private condemn her but to pray for her
as that is what I believe we all should do.
Chautauqua Theatre is one of the best, most efficiently
ran, non-profit groups that I've ever been associated with
in my life. It appears that a great many have no clue about
how fabulous this is for adults and children (as we adults do
get to expand our talents as we volunteer) in this communi-
ty. While this theatre mostly hosts children's performances,
the adults of this community can participate to build sets,
props, costumes, makeup, clean up and run the lights and
sound equipment. So in all honesty, we all get to participate
in some way. I know this firsthand as I've done many tasks
during my time there.
I just wanted to clear up any misconceptions that might
be floating from your story and let you all know that there
are a great many people who are extremely happy with the
way things are. I am just one of those.

- which is independent of the state DOT and has the power
to tax, seize private land through eminent domain, and set
up toll authorities .- has spent $4 million worth of public
money and has not had annual audits as required by law.
' In fact, the NFTCA is the only transportation authority
in the state that has not had its required audits. Right now,
the DOT's Inspector General is working up balance sheets
for the authority, but this does not constitute formal audit-
ing -' outside audits are specifically required.
Most all of the money spent so far has gone to the private
HDR Engineering, which is doing planning for the road
and collecting a profit in the meantime. Invoices show that
about $3.9 million has gone to pay hefty engineering fees to
do master planning for the new roads. Still, when pressed
by the public, the NFTCA insists that people shouldn't get
attached to the lines on the map that this $4 million worth
of public money paid for. These lines drawn through our
communities they tell us are still just "concepts." After
four years and $4 million, we've still only got concepts?
Now, all of a sudden, a private company waltzes in with
this very suspicious-looking proposal to "help" Walton
County. Tom McLaughlin of the Northwest Florida Daily
News reported on Feb. 20: "The authority, never having re-
ceived an unsolicited proposal, had to set a fee to submit
such documents. It settled on a tentative charge of $50,000.
That money will be used to advertise the proposal and to no-
tify other potential bidders of its existence. Once advertise-
ments are published, other firms that might be interested
in competing for the project have 60 days to provide propos-
als."
Sixty.days for other companies to come up with a compet-
ing proposal for a road project this large and complex? None
of this sounds right.
It's worth noting that about $105,800 of the $4 million"
that the transportation authority spent so far went to HDR
Engineering to pay for "public outreach" between May and
November of 2007. That's $17,633 per month.
I wish some of that "public outreach" money would go to-
ward letting the citizens really know what's going on here.

Editor:
The county is now running a generic "notice of intent to
use uniform method of collection non-ad valorem assess-
ments" which was the subject of a letter in your November
27 issue. Contrary to answers supplied at that time, Mr.
Imfeld (BCC finance director) informed me yesterday that
this notice is intended for MSBUs which may be forthcom-
ing later this year. Giving blanket approval to future MS-
BUs within the county boundaries does not appear to be
the intent of section 197.3632. Florida Statutes, as indi-
cated in the below excerpts:
(1)(a) "Levy" means the imposition of a non-ad valorem
assessment, stated in terms of rates, against all appropri-
ately located property by a governmental body authorized
by law to impose non-ad valorem assessments.
(3)(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the
contrary, a local government which is authorized to im-
pose a non-ad valorem assessment and which elects to use
,the uniform method of collecting such assessment for the
first time as authorized in this section shall adopt a resolu-
tion at a public hearing prior to January 1 or, if the prop-
erty appraiser, tax collector, and local government agree,
March 1. The resolution.shall clearly state. its intent to use
the uniform method of collecting such assessment. The lo-
cal government shall publish notice of its intent to use the
uniform method for collecting such assessment weekly in
a newspaper of general circulation within each county con-
tained in the boundaries of the local government for four
consecutive weeks preceding the hearing. The resolution'
shall state the need for the levy and shall include a legal
description of the boundaries of the real property subject
to the levy.
From the legal description provided (by the county), it
appears that the entire county is subject to a first-time
levy and the need expressed in the resolution is that "The
County hereby determines that the levy of the assess-
ments is needed to fund the cost of capital infrastructure
and roadway; improvements within the unincorporated
area of the County."
I believe that Florida Statues intend both the notice and
resolution to be specific to a single capital project and not a
blank cheque for future county use.

Paxton Town


Council facing


tough decisions


By BRUCE COLLIER

Paxton Town Council
members must make some
hard decisions in the months
ahead regarding possible
rate changes for water and
sewerage services. A presen-
tation and discussion of the
subject took up much of the
Council's time at last week's
regular monthly meeting,
held Feb. 17 at Paxton Town
Hall. Present were Council
members Bobby Kemp, Bill
McRae, Jenice Armstrong,
Mark Warren, and Mayor
Hayward Thomas. Also at-
tending was city attorney
Lori Bytell. Council member
Ann Sexton was absent. The
meeting came to order at 6
p.m.
Following routine busi-
ness, the Council heard a
request from Dixie Youth
League (DYL), conveyed by
Mayor Thomas, to hang a
banner for one of its teams
which had success in a re-
cent tournament. After a
brief discussion, it was de-
cided to find an appropriate
place to display the banner.
The mayor next asked
the Council to approve pay-
ment of an additional $5,000
from the budget to pay for
necessary lab testing of wa-
ter from two wells. McRae
moved to accommodate the
request, and the motion car-
ried.
Coy Donaldson from Flor-
ida Rural .Water Association
made a rate change study
presentation next, supple-
menting his talk with writ-
ten charts and a power point


presentation. Last year, the
Council asked Donaldson to
make a budget study of the
town's water and sewerage
service system. Donaldson
had praise for the city's
general management of the
system, but flatly told the
Council, "The rates are not
adequate."
Donaldson offered sev-
eral worksheet of possible
plans, each incorporating
the current budget. In all
events, said Donaldson,
current water and sewer-
age rates as charged will-
not meet the city's need to
service debt and maintain
a reserve (which the city'is
already maintaining). Every
projected water and sewer-
age rate change scenario
involved raising rates, in
some instances as much as
doubling them. Though this
still translates into relative-
ly low rates (since Paxton's
water rates are compara-
tively low to begin with),
many of Paxton's water and
sewerage customers are on
severely-restricted incomes.
'"A penny means a lot to
some people," said.Kemp.
Donaldson said he empa-
thized, but maintained that
water and sewerage are
"lifeline" services, and that
Paxton has been almost
giving them away. Though
Armstrong and McRae both
observed that many cus-
tomers could not afford the
projected rates, it was also
noted that rates have been
kept constant for some time
with no changes.
Donaldson suggested that
f


COY DONALDSON, of Florida Rural Water Association, made a presentation on possible water and sewer rate changes
at the February meeting of the Paxton Town Council. (Photo by Bruce Collier)


the Council adopt a four-step
approach. The first step was
to recognize the need for a
rate increase. The next was
to select the most reasonable
approach. Once selected,
the third step would be to
incorporate the change into-
the appropriate ordinance.
Finally, the Council should
review rates each budget cy-
cle to increase if and when
needed. Donaldson urged
the Council to first think of
the business decision, then
take steps to temper it, in-
cluding possibly phasing-in
rate changes.
"We'll get the same
amount 'of flak if we go up
one penny as one dollar,"
commented McRae. He
asked Donaldson to come
back with more figures for
a possible April workshop.
All Council members agreed
that workshops would be


needed to keep the public
fully informed and to allow
customer input. "We have to
decide when to decide," said
Warren. The Council did not
name a specific date for a
special workshop, but April
will likely be the month.
The Council next took up,
bids that had been submit-
ted to construct cabinets for
the town hall. After deter-
mining there were no con-
flicts of interest between the
Council members and any
of the submitting contrac-
tors, the Council considered
the bids and voted to accept
one.
In the mayor's .report,
Thomas said that he has
been approached by Walton
County Library Manager
Dan Owens about building
a library branch in Paxton.
Needed would be a tract of
about one acre of land, and


the library would not cost
the city, except for utilities
and water. Thomas was
authorized to pursue the
matter with Owens, who,
has asked to meet with the
Council to discuss the proj-
ect. McRae commented, "If
we get a library, maybe we'll
get 'a gas station."
Bytell had no news in her
attorney's report.
In department report re-
ports, McRae said that the
batting cage foundation is
laid in the city's ball park,
and the rest of the work.
should be completed soon.
He also said that the conces-
sion stand specifically its
utility bills- should be the
responsibility of the DYL,
not the city, and suggested


that DYL discuss the mat-
ter with the Council at next
month's regular meeting.
The Paxton Ruritans Club,
which donated the clock re-
cently installed at the Agri-
cultural Building, is spon-
soring a March 5 meeting in
Paxton with Walton County
Sheriff Mike Adkinson and
Walton County Commission
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen.
A private citizen attend-
ing the meeting offered to
set up and operate a trash-
burning site, accepting
"anything burnable." Also
discussed was a city-wide
"spring cleanup."

The meeting.adjourned at
7:50 p.m.

er was booked on charges
of possession of cocaine and
methamphetamine with in-
tent to sell, manufacture or
deliver, and possession of

The certificates do not con-

but are a reminder of the
help the donor gave to the
project.
The city has applied for a
historical grant to repair the
clock, but does not know if
they will receive the grant.
Little told the Council and
the audience, "We believe
this is worth restoring for
our community. It's just
one more piece of history
that makes our community
special. If we are not able
to raise all the funding, all
of the donations will be re-
turned to the donors. We
understand that we can not
expect the city to foot all the
expenses for projects like
this, so we wanted to raise
awareness of what is needed
and help all of the communi-
ty take part in. repairing the

Any and all donations are
accepted, but those working
on the initiative request that
donations total at least' $20

to their employee sick-leave
donations. The new amend-
ments only clarified when
employees would be able to
donate sick leave to co-work-
er, payment for accrued sick
leave would be handled and
outlined acceptable uses of
sick leave by city employ-
ees.
The Council then moved
to unanimously agree on ap-


proving a smoke-free work-
place policy. This will ex-
tend to all city vehicles and
covers all forms of tobacco.
The Council agreed
unanimously to approve a
contract with Peters Mu-
nicipal Associates, Inc., for
services with the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion beautification grant.
The beautification project
that runs along portions of
the east and west U.S. 90 is
scheduled to be completed
by October 2009.
DeFuniak Springs Fi-
nancial Director Sara Bow-
ers received a glowing audit
report from Tipton, Marler,
Garner and Chastain. The
city has increased its net as-
sets by $1,329,474 in 2008.
The total net asset of the
city sits at $29,577,904 with
a combined total of liabilities
and assets of $45,899,146.
The only advice the city re-
ceived from the audit was
over purchase orders.
In the past, the audit
found that there were goods
purchased and then ap-
proved. The audit recom-
mended that a purchase
order be approved before
purchases. Bowers and City
Manager Kim Kirby told the
Council that this had been
corrected and had only hap-
pened in instances of Inter-
net purchase such as travel
accommodations for the
Council.
The next city Council
meeting is scheduled for
March 9 at 6 p.m.

teacher for 26 years, the
last 18 have been in Wal-
ton County. She began her
career in Hoffman Middle
School in Houston, Tex-
as. "I decided to become a
teacher," she said, "because
I wanted to be like my older
sister. I had other relatives
who were teachers, too.
My older sister would play
"School" with us and she
was a teacher, so that really
inspired me to want to do
the same thing."
Paul-Ales had advice for
those considering a career in
teacher. "It's a very reward-
ing career to be in. It may
not' always have immediate
rewards, but the most im-
portant rewards are when
students can come back and
say, 'It was because of you

'It was because of you that
I was encouraged to do' this
or that. So, it's really the
students that can give you
such overwhelming joy and
a good feeling that will con-
tinue to inspire you."
Educational Support Pro-
fessional of the Year Mi-
chelle Campbell, a 15-year
veteran of the school dis-
trict, said she that she was

also shocked. to hear her
name called as the recipient
of the prestigious award.
"When I found out that I
,was chosen as my school's
ESP, I was so excited. I
couldn't believe I actually
won, but it was the joy that
my fellow ESP co-workers
believed in me. It was very
exciting, but I never in my
life dreamed that I would be

Working in the classroom
is the source of Campbell's,
strength and joy. "I work
alongside teachers, helping
kids with the state stan-
dards. The best part of my
job is helping students learn
how to read and just seeing
a smile on the kids' faces
when they accomplish their
goals everyday."
Campbell said she first

planned to become an ac-
countant, but changed her
mind after she volunteered
to go along on a Special
Olympics trip. From that
moment on, she never looked
back and has been working
for the school district ever
since.
"It's a lot of work. You go
home tired because, just like
the teachers, you've given it
100 percent, but I recom-


mend it for anyone with pa-
tience and a love for kids. I'd
like to thank everyone for
looking at me and finding
me worthy of this award.
For all my 'family' at MSE,
I appreciate them backing
me. It is a great honor and
I appreciate everything the

WCSO holds first civilian pistol safety class


On Feb. 20, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) held the first civil-
ian pistol safety class. The
twenty participants met at
8 a.m. at the WCSO firing
range complex for lecture,
demonstration and both
dry and live fire training.
Sheriff Michael A. Adkinson
opened up the facilities and
provided instructional staff
for the training event.'
The training began with
a discussion of the safety
and range'rules and was fol-
lowed by lecture on the safe
storage and legal respon-
sibilities of being a respon-
sible gun owner. Instruction
also included the parts and
workings of revolvers and
semi-automatic pistols, am-


munition types, and gun
and ammunition storage.
Participants were allowed
to handle their own particu-
lar firearms as this discus-
sion and demonstration took
place.
After a detailed explana-
tion of marksmanship skills
to include stance, grip, sight
alignment and sight pic-
ture, trigger control and fol-
low through, the group was
allowed onto the range. The
student's received about
an hour of dry practice go-
ing over proper grip, sight
alignment, trigger control
and follow-through. As the
instructors had indicated,
many of the participants
found out how physical
shooting a pistol can be.


Live fire consisted of the
proper loading of rounds,
sighting in and firing for
accuracy. The group began
slowly with one round and
then two eventually work-
ing up to multiple rounds.
This slowly built up the con-
fidence of the participants
and allowed the instructors
to better work with them.
A total of 50 rounds were
eventually fired by the end
of the live fire session. Af-
ter range cleanup, the class
finished with a short lecture
on the proper cleaning of the
pistol.
Judging from the course
evaluations, the partici-
pants felt they had learned
a lot and were better able to
handle their firearms. Many


requested additional train-
ing and felt that they would
benefit from the next level
which covers home defense
and the "castle doctrine."
Sheriff Adkinson ex-
pressed his commitment to
providing this type of ser-
vice to the citizens. Judging
from the enthusiasm of the
participants, and from the
fact that the next class is
already full, it appears the
citizens are fully supportive
of this type of training and
service as much as the sher-
iff is committed to providing
it.
Anyone interested in
signing up for future classes
may call the Walton County
-Sheriffs Office at (850) 892-
8186 and ask for the train-


PROPER STANCE IMPORTANT in controlling fire, as
civilian student learns pistol safety from WCSO.


CIVILIAN PISTOL SAFETY CLASS had its first-ever session Feb. 20.


A month ago, I saw an ad
in The Herald for the Miss
Defuniak Springs pageant.
Being 21, the cut-off age,
and never having been a
'pageant girl, I decided to
give it a try.
Oh, how little did[I know
what I was in for. .
Finding the dress was the
easy part. Then 'canie the
earrings, the shoes, the hair
and make-up, the interview
suit, the heels, the cowboy
boots, the western shirt (the
theme was Beauties Gone
Country) and so on.
Every night of the week
leading up to the pageant,
three other girls .competing
for Miss DeFuniak Springs
and I would pull on our
boots and practice'the open-
ing number, a line dance to
Brooks and Dilnn's "Play
Something Country." Then
we'd slip into stilettos and
glide across the stage pre-
paring for our onstage ques-
tion and evening gown re-
view.
By far, the best part of be-
ing in a pageant is the girls
you meet. Although the girls
in my division were still se-
niors in high school, they
embody the grace and con-
geniality for which beauty
queens are known.
My three pageant com-
rades were Katelyn Dorri.-
ety, a true-blue cowgirl who
won first place in a rodeo for
riding sheep, and dazzled
in an orange evening gown,
Nyssa Williams, a Walton-
High School hall-of-famer
whose poise should land her
on a runway in Milan, and
Emilee Anderson, by far


Covenant Butterflies, in
association with the Chau-
tauqua Assembly, will be

day, Feb. 27 and Saturday,

one of the funniest girl's I've
ever met-she broke into
the robot on-stage and imi-
tated a chicken! Emilee, I'm
serious, be my best friend!
The day of the pageant,
after almost having a melt-
down over, my 'dress being
too short, my shoes .being
too tall, and my make-up'
being too light, the time had
come to face the music, or in
this case, the judges.
As we sped to Walton
High School for my inter-
view, I realized why I was
going through all of this
madness.
To me, the title of Miss
Defuniak Springs wasn't
about 'winning a pageant,
it was about the honor of
representing the city of De-
Fuliak Springs and its peo-
ple, whom I've come to love
so dearly.
; I sat in the car realizing,
foremost, Miss DeFuniak
Springs should have a love
for this town and a kin-
ship with its residents. She
should be proud to wear
the title of Miss DeFuniak
Springs, and believe strong-
ly .in education, the arts,
community involvement
and serving others. Without
these pillars of character,
she would not faithfully rep-
resent the wonderful people
of DeFuniak Springs.
While this description ap-
plies to all of the Miss con-
testants, I hoped the judges
would see in me not just a
young woman in a pretty
dress who wanted to win a
pageant, but a young woman
who believes in what it truly
means to be Miss DeFuniak

Springs.
But, beheve me. I thought
I blew it.
Blinded by the spotlights,
my left eye began to involun-
tarily twitch as I defined the
word dignity on stage. My
brother told me afterward
that I looked like I had tur-
rets on one side of my body,
and appeared anything but
dignified.
Then, I uttered a state-
ment. I will never live down.
I took the stage to answer
the final question; prepared
for politics, economy, educa-


tion...anything but "What
farm animal would you be'?"
Completely taken aback, I
babbled about being a cow
and milling around green
pastures, only to summarize
with "hopefully the farmer
would warm up his hands
before he came to milk me."
You can only imagine the
audience's laughter, and the
jokes I will now suffer until
I die.
As Katelyn, Nyssa, Emi-
lee and I lined up for the
judges final scores, I knew
I had lost, if not the twitch,


the milking comment.
When the emcee an-
nounced "and the new Miss
DeFuniak Springs 2009 is
contestant number three.
Ashley Amason." I was
stunned. Shocked. Then I
started laughing. Then ev-
eryone started laughing as
last year's Miss DeFuniak
Springs, 5'2" Allie Alford
tried to pin the crown on iny
six-feet-tall frame. Let's just
say it took a while.
To all of the residents of
DeFuniak Springs, to my
co-workers, friends and


family. I could not be more
thrilled to be your Miss De-
Funiak Springs 2009. I will
wear this title proudly and
respect the honor you have
given me to represent you
in the upcoming year, as I
continue to compete in Miss
National P-eanut Festival.

Thank you all so very
much, and a special thank
you to my mother. Without
your last-minute madness
and unwavering faith in me,
this opportunity would not
be possible.

Mardi Gras Gala rings in


the Chautauqua fssemblyg


By JOHN MURPHY
photos by John Murphy Photography
DeFuniak Springs is no stranger to celebrations. In fact,
as most of its citizenry knows, the city was founded on the
celebration of Chautauqua. In this spirit Shrove Tuesday
came early this year with a gala celebration Thursday night
at the Hotel DeFuniak. The celebration also served as the
kick off for the second of our nearly consecutive Chautau-
quas. This one was headed by Ann Robinson, who arrived
early clad in scarlet and sporting an especially bewitching
mask, consisting of a female figure holding aloft a golden
face. Some how with Ann it all looked very Comme il faux.
The party was conceived and hosted by Chuck Hinson with
the able and enthusiastic help of his mother Marie. They
were aided by an army of volunteers who I had the plea-
sure of seeing in action when I dropped by the hotel early
to see how things were coming. Celia Robinson was there
somehow finding time from her coordinating duties for the
Chautauqua draping the side entrance to the hotel in bun-
tings the color of spun sunlight. Chuck and Carol Puckett
and Alicia Lenord were inside adding a dramatic flair as
only thespians can, and John Parsons the noted architect,
with the help of Greg Powell, made sure all the spatial di-
mensions were correct when it came to bead placement.
The party got underway a little after 7 p.m. when the


Vince Way Band, musicians in residence at the hotel, aid-
ed by the addition of drums and bass, kicked off the music
with the anthem of Mardi gras, "Jambalaya." As is the tra-
dition in DeFuniak the tone of the evening was set with the
appearance on the dance floor of Doc and Ellen Mayfield.
No one can set the mood like Doc and Ellen. The infection
quickly spread as the dance floor became crowed and revel-
ers only paused to a see what the new arrivals were wearing.
All turned to stare when city manager Kim Kirby appeared
with white stole and someone who looked to be the man in
the moon. Also stunning was statuesque Alex Alexander all
in black with flashing flamingo necklace. There was more
,flashing going on in the form of sunglasses worn by John
Parsons controlled by a hidden switch and used with per-
fect comedic timing. Harley and Mindy Henderson showed
us all how dancing should be done as Chuck Puckett, no
slouch in the music department stood front the band snap-
ping his fingers and looking the impresario.
As the party wound down, toasts were made, most with
the hope of an improved economy and a renewal of our sense
of community. As last call sounded and the band broke
down their set, the party took on a quieter tone. Friends,
their arms around each other and a renewed joy in their
hearts, all glad to be a part of this community that so dearly
loves its celebrations.

In Ephesians 3:18 all
believers are told about the
Christian life in its four di-
mension as it pertains to all
of us. We are urged to know
what is the breadth, length,
height, and depth of what
life ih Christ is to be. .
The first is breadth. It
means a world vision. We
are to look for a world re-
deemed from sin and rejoic-
ing in the freedom we have in
Christ. We know this world
with its need and suffering.
We need to introduce people
to the Father's world, with a
new vision. There we can be
with all believers, no matter
what class or race they come
from. That is breadth.
Then there is length:


What long views Jesus had!
He refused the short cuts to
desired goals.

"Command that these
stones be made bread" (Mat-
thew 4:3), Satan tempted
Him. He was looking at the
long view of mankind's need.
He knew that the crowd
that would welcome Him
in such a way, would also
later cry, "Crucify Him." He
said, "I, if I be lifted up from
the earth, will draw all men
unto me" (John 12:32)., He
with the long view held to
His purpose, and was never
dismayed by it all.
Again, there is depth.
The two above are on the
surface. Depth is needed,


Mary' E. Miller passed
away Feb. 21 at her home
in DeFuniak Springs, FL.
Originally from Hope, MI.,
she lived most of her life in
Evansville, IN. before retir-
ing to Florida in 1992.
Mary Wvas co-founder
of A&D Distributors, and
retired .from the Covert
and Vann Great Scot as
* deli manager. She was a
life-time member and past
president of the VFW La-
dies Auxiliary, Post 1114 in
Evansville.
Mary loved playing golf,
enjoyed crafts, and was an
avid bowler, gardener, and
card player. She never
met a stranger, and will
be missed by all who knew
her.
Mary is survived by Don-
ald L., her loving- husband


and it was in the Christ of
God. Depth was revealed in
the Lord, the Son of God. In
Romans 11:33 Paul wrote,
"0 the depth of the riches
both of the wisdom and
knowledge of God." One day
the thoughts of many hearts
will be revealed. May your
heart reveal good work for
the Master.

Lastly, there is the need
for height. We can build
a lofty character through
Christ alone. Bring your ac-
tions up into the clear light
of day. Root deep and wide
in the heart of Christ if you
would reach high and far in
faithful service and influ-
ence.

THE NEXT ROOM
Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped
away into the next room. I am I, and you are .
you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the
easy way which you always used. Put no difference in
your tone, wear no forced air of, olemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we
enjoyed together.
Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be
the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken
without effect, without trace of a shadow on it. Life
means all that it ever meant, it is the same as it ever
was; there is unbroken continiiity,
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of
sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very
near, just around the corner. All is well.

In His Presence-Fulness Of Joy
By Rev. Dr. G. Charles Satterwhite, Pastor
In Your presence is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11, AMP)


Just by being in your
presence, non-Christians
and Christians alike should
be able to tell that you have
spent time in God's pres-
ence.
There is a price to pay!
In Acts 4, Peter and John
were brought to the rulers
and elders of the people (v.
8) to be questioned,by'them.
But when Peter and 'Jolhn
came to those people, who
were Jews, they were aston-
ished [by Peter and John]
and they took note that
these men had been with
Jesus (Acts 4:13).
People could tell that Pe-
ter and John had spent time
with Jesus simply by tle
way they lived.
Could it possibly 'be that
Jesus had so changed their
lives that an "'aroma" of
God was coming from them.
Having that, "aroma" re-
quires being like Christ,
and the only way that we
c. an become Christlike is if
we abide and dwell in God's
presence--and doing that re-
quires a conscious decision.,
You must decide to practice
His presence!
* Through being in God's
presence, we bear good
spiritual fruit. In John 15:5,
Jesus promises, "If a man
remains in me and I in him,
he will bear much fruit."
In other words, by spend-
ing time with God you will
develop valuable spiritual
fruit. People will see your
fruit and recognize that you
have been with Jesus.
* When you spend time in


God's presence, you experi-
enrce an increase in your joy,
contentment, peace, and
satisfaction. David told the
Lord, in Your presence is
fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11,
AMP). God will pour joy into
your life when you spend
time in His presence. Then,
you can take that joy and
show it to those around you.
Great chaifiges occur when
you spend time with God
* In God's presence is the
only place where you can
become more like Christ. As
God changes you, the world
will be astonished and see
that you have been with Je-
sus.
* Church works and reli-
gious ,acts do not replace
spending personal time with
God.
* Have you ever been so
busy working for God that
you neglect time with God?
* We are deceived thinking
that religious works are as
good as spending personal
time with God. However,
you will not grow spiritually
if you don't spend time with
God.
* Good works will not get
you into Heaven; you must
have a personal relationship
with Jesus. In Matthew
7:22-23, Jesus declared,
"Many will say to me on
that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we


Dr. G. Charles Satterwhite

not prophesy in your name,
and in your name drive out
demons and perform many
miracles?' Then I will tell
them plainly, 'I never knew
you. Away from me, you
evildoers!'" People thought
that doing good things in
the name of Jesus could get
into Heaven. Instead, Jesus
surprised them by saying, "I
never knew you."
Never get caught up in good
works and forget to know
God
* Make it your goal to seek
first his kingdom and his
righteousness, and all these
things will be given to you
as well (Matthew 6:33).
* .If all of your good works
have made you so busy that
you don't spend any time
with God, then those good.
works have become bad
works, because they are re-
placing your time with God.
* Jesus, paid the price-you
get to keep the change!

the Bobcats, who were fight-
ing the flu last week.

"We didn't hit much from
outside, but we are still alire
to move on to the second


round," Coach Jeff Bradley
suggested on Friday after-
noon.

Game notes: Paxton is
making its 14th appearance
in the state playoffs and
holds a 14-11 record in 25
games. The Bobcats last trip
to the Final Four in boys
basketball came in 1973-


74 when the team lost to
FAMU 58-43. The Bobcats
are the last Walton County
team to make it to the Fi-
nal Four in boys basketball.
Paxton defeated Graceville
45-40 at home last year, in
the second round and will
have to do so to reach the
Region Final on Saturday.
Paxton's boys squad has


not won a road playoff game
since at least 1978. Paxton
would travel to Tallahassee
to face FAMU, but would get
to host Gainesville Rock. It
is not impossible that either
Colby Forehand or Shaq
Jackson might be available
for the Region Final on Sat-
urday if their wrist injuries
. continue to heal.

Cole Weeks. "We have al-
ways had great students at
Freeport High School, but
I was overwhelmed by the


response we received when
we started the Key Club,"
said Missildine. "Thirty-
five members committed to
the Key Club Motto 'Caring
- Our Way of Life.' They
have participated in several
community service projects
and logged several hun-
dred hours in their first few
months."
Key Club is a student led
organization that teaches
leadership through service

students came to our first
meeting and they" continue
to amaze us with their en-
thusiasm."

the best of our young lead-
ers." Bill Belser, owner of

South Walton, Freeport fall in playoffs


By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton boys
basketball team was unable
to continue their historic
season as Marianna brought
an end to their run with a
55-32 victory. Freeport suf-
fered a rough second half
that allowed Cottondale to
pull away for a 59-38 win
that also ended Freeport's
season.
South Walton trailed the
Marianna Bulldogs 26-19 at
half time and could not get
any closer as the Bulldogs
used their size to pull away
in the second half of play.
R.J. Bowers scored 14 points
while center Kruize Perkins
added 13 as the Bulldogs
had nine different players
score in the game.
Dylan Smith led the Sea-
hawks with 14 points while
David Key added 10. The
Seahawks had no one else


score more than four points
as their season came to an
end with a 19-9 record.
Freeport got off to a
promising start as the Bull-
dogs built a first quarter
lead over the Hornets on the
road. Freeport took advan-
tage of poor Cottondale ball-
handling early to convert
several baskets for a 14-11
lead at the end of one quar-
ter of play.
Freeport had chances to
extend the lead in the sec-
ond period of play, but the
Bulldogs' outside shooting
disappeared and they had
to go inside for most of their
scoring. Cottondale also
turned to their inside game
as the Hornets crawled
ahead in the final moments
of the first half for a 24-22
halftime lead.
. Turnovers and cold shoot-
ing doomed Freeport in the


second half as Cottondale
settled down at home and
raced to a 40-24 lead. It got
no better for the Bulldogs in
the fourth quarter as Free-
port tried to force turnovers
with pressure only to give
up several fast-break bas-
kets that led to the 59-38
final score.
Alex Newkirk was the
bright spot of the game. The
junior grabbed several key
rebounds and led the team
in scoring with 11 points.
Senior Johnny McCormick
was held to eight points in
his final game as Cottondale
concentrated on stopping the
talented senior who is also
the Area 5's leading scorer
at 19.9 points per game.
Freeport finished the year
with a 15-13 mark,
Game Notes: South Wal-
ton lost its first-ever playoff
game but set high marks for


wins (19), overall record, dis-
trict wins, and road wins all
in the same season. South
Walton also beat Walton for
the first time in boys basket-
ball in school history which
also earned them their first
state playoff bid. John Da-
vies followed a 4-23 season
with a 19-9 record and is
23-32 in two seasons at the
school. Freeport needed to
be hot from the perimeter to
beat Cottondale but the Hor-
nets old gymnasium was far
from kind as the Bulldogs
hit only one three-point shot
in the game. Road teams
were 2-16 in the first two
round for the girls basket-
ball teams in Class A, 2A,
and 3A with the boys teams
posting a 2-10 mark in the
first round on the road. Sim-
ply put, it pays to play at
home, otherwise the odds of
winning go way down.

tondale defense during the first half of the game as Johnny
McCormick watches in the background. Freeport finished
the season with a 15-13 record.


Second round unkind to area


girls bh

By PATRICK CASEY
The success of the first
round playoff games at
home was met by the reality
of difficult road games for all
three of the local'girls bas-
ketball teams that tipped
off second round games on
February 17. Walton, Pax-
ton and Ponce de Leon all
had hopes of reaching the
Region final in their respec-
tive classes on Saturday last
week but, unfortunately,
none of the three squads
survived their road outings
to reach that goal.
Walton got off to a poor
start in Marianna as poor
shooting and turnovers al-
lowed Marianna to take a
29-14 lead into the locker
room over the Braves. Wal-
ton had a good third quarter
-but could not overcome the
large deficit as Marianna
defeated the Braves:53-46.
Ponce de Leon gave Cot-
tondale a battle in the first
half, but managed to score
only two point in the third
quarter as Cottondale pulled
away, then hung on in the fi-
nal seconds for a 59-55 win
over the Pirates.
Paxton fell behind 29-20
at halftime and had to bat-
tle over the final 16 minutes
to get within two points as
Graceville held off the Bob-
cats 45-43 in a defensive
contest.
The Lady Braves saw
their season come to an as
Marianna's size allowed the
Bulldogs to grab rebound af-


basketball teams


ter rebound in the first half.
Niesha Butler had 15 points
and grabbed 11 rebounds
while Kierra Butler was
credited with 13 rebounds.
Walton lost the battle of the
boards but did cut the deficit
to three points in the final
minutes of the game. Unfor-
tunately, Walton could not
hit enough shots in the final
three minutes to complete
the rally.
Lee Paulk led the Braves
with 12 points, but Walton
did not find a hot shooter to
help them pull out the win.
The loss was particularly
disappointing since the
Braves had defeated Mari-
anna twice during the regu-
lar season.
PDL knew their task
would be difficult as the Pi-
rates have struggled to win
in Cottondale. The Pirates
,trailed only 30-27 at half-
time but had a disastrous
third quarter as they fell
behind 49-32 early in the
fourth quarter. The Pirates
pumped up the defense and
got within 57-55 with 18
seconds left only to have a
questionable double dribble
call with nine seconds steal
their last chance at a come-
back.
PDL (21-7) got 18 points
from Hillary Harper while
the Hornets received 26
points from Shaunte For-
ward.
Paxton's Erin Walker
scored 24 points as the Bob-
cats rallied in the second


half to close the gap to 39-33
entering the fourth quarter.
The Bobcats struggled, to
make shots on the road, but
did start the second half with
a 10-0 run that gave them
a 30-29 lead. Graceville re-
sponded to retake the lead
and made some key free
throws in the final moment
to grab the win.
Graceville led 45-43
with eight seconds left but
missed a free throw that set
off a scramble for the ball.
A jump ball call ensued and
with the arrow in favor of the
Tigers, allowed Graceville
to run out most of the rest
of the clock as Paxton could
not get possession in time to


do anything with it.
Game Notes: Paxton
finished the season with

tory. If records are correct,
PDL has not won a game in

ing them participate in the Capital One Bowl All-American
Halftime Show in Orlando on New Year's Day. Squad mem-
bers say this truly was the chance of a lifetime for the squad
and that they enjoyed the entire week filled with hard work
and lots of fun. The cheerleaders say this would have been
impossible for them without the help of their supporters, es-
pecially Principal Sonya Alford, Marlene Andrews, Teresa
Allen and Superintendent Carlene Anderson. According to
the squad members, "Without their help, our financial goals
would have never been reached. We can't express our never-
ending gratitude enough."

LOCAL FIREFIGHTER Tony Mosley recently brought
down this 7-point buck in the woods near his Glendale
home. This is Mosley's second buck for the season.


JEREMY DAVIS KILLED this 14-point buck on fam-
ily-owned property in north Walton County on Jan. 13,
2009. The deer weighed in at 180 pounds. Jeremy arrived
at his hunting stand about 3:45 p.m. and within about
ten minutes, the buck came in and was taken with one
shot.
On Feb. 11, 2009, Lemoyne McKee came by our home
to inquire about the 14-point deer that Jeremy had killed
earlier. Ironically, it turns out that this deer had been
feeding on some of his family property as well and he
had photos dated back a few weeks that were taken on his
cam too prove it. The photo was dated back a few weeks
prior.

WCSB: Support for historical



community causes dissent


By ASHLEYAMASON
At the Feb. 17 regular
meeting of the Walton Coun-
ty School Board (WCSB),
board members debated
whether or not to comply
with a request from the
vice president of the Point
Washington Historical As-
sociation, James Foley, for
.support of the preservation
of Point Washington's his-
torical character through
height and density require-
ments for new development.
Board member Darrell
Barnhill voiced a sugges-
tion to prepare a resolution,
commenting, "I support the
concept of a historical com-
munity," but claimed he was


not comfortable discussing
"finite issues of planning."
Member Sharon Roberts
adamantly disagreed, tell-
ing Foley she contacted sev-
eral board members of the
Point Washington Histori-
cal Association who claimed
to be unaware Foley was
requesting support from
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners and
the WCSB. Roberts stated
she felt ill at ease "when a
group can't decide within
themselves what they actu-
ally want...I think as a pub-
lic board, we need to stay

Old issues rose to the sur-
face once more as commis-
sioners for the South Walton
Mosquito Control District
(SWMCD) were questioned
by the public on the need to
increase the number of com-
missioners from three .to
five.
Bonnie McQuiston was
in attendance at a meeting
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) when they agreed to
a request by board attorney
Lori Bytell to write a resolu-
tion to the state, which will
be discussed in the fall ses-
sion, to allow the increase in
commissioners from three to
five.
McQuiston said, "It is,
hard for people to under-
stand why the commission
wants to almost double in
size in these hard economic
times. What is the thinking?
Why do you need two more
people?"
Chairman John Magee
said, "It comes down to han-
dling money. We currently
answer to the state depart-
ment of agriculture and
they feel when such a large
sum of money is involved,
there should be more com-
missioners. We were also
only a board of two people
for more than 18 months. It
will be two years before the
new commissioners come
on board and hopefully the
economy will be better," he


said.


"It is hard for peo-
ple to understand
why the commission
wants to almost
double in size in
these hard economic
times. What is the
thinking? Why do

McQuiston pointed out
the district has operated un-
der the three-commissioner
system for the past 45 years
and continued to question
the need for an increase.
Commissioner Jim Craw-
ford said, "If something had
happened to John or me
while we were a board of
two, this board would have
been shut down." Crawford
and Magee were the only
two commissioners left af-
ter the removal of Charlie
Burke and his replacement,

Students benefit from


awareness-raising program


By DOTTY NIST
The dangers associated
with intoxicated driving
were impressed on South
Walton High School stu-
dents recently through a
high-tech educational pro-
gram presented by the
P.E.E.R.S. organization.
P.E.E.R.S. stands for Pro-
fessionals Encouraging Edu-
cational Reform Statewide.
The organization strives
through its programs to
increase awareness about
negative consequences as-


sociated with unhealthy life
choices.
On Feb. 18, South Walton
High School (SWHS) juniors
and seniors had the oppor-
tunity to participate in a
P.E.E.R.S. drunk-driving
prevention program. First
the students viewed real-life
videos showing and present-
ing testimony on the heart-
breaking consequences that
others have endured as a re-
sult of their choice to drive
with alcohol in their sys-
tem.


Next the students had the
opportunity for some hands-
on experience in a real car
equipped with a computer-
ized road simulation sys-
tem, providing them inter-
actively with the alarming
experience of intoxicated
driving.
The exercise took place in

GTGC launches "American Pride


Landscape Competition" for 2009


Once again, (GTGC)
Green Thumb Garden Club
of Santa Rosa Beach will
sponsor "The American
Pride Landscape Compe-
tition" for residential and
commercial gardens, start-
ing March 27 through April
27. This year marks the
21st year that GTGC has
held this competition which
has sparked a great deal of
interest each year.

The competition was the
brainchild of John Foster
and Peggy Baylor, former
members of GTGC, who
wanted to encourage people
to enhance their surround-
ings, and also recognize
those who had put the time
and effort into beautifying
their homes and businesses.
Over the years, gardens
of many types have been
featured wildflower gar-
dens, native plant gardens,
shade gardens, water gar-


dens, gardens for sitting,
gardens for walking, gar-
dens for relaxing even
gardens for gardening. It is
truly amazing what can be
coaxed to grow and flourish
in the sandy soil and salt air
of the south Walton County
area.
The competition pro-
motes gardening excellence
in south Walton County and
recognizes community resi-
dents and local businesses
whose landscape designs cre-
ate aesthetic and functional
gardens that are attractive
and enhance the beauty of
our area. Anyone residing
in Walton County south of
SR-20 from Okaloosa. Coun-
ty to the Bay County line is
eligible to participate.
Anyone who has an eye-
catching and remarkable
garden, be it residential
or commercial, the Green
Thumb Garden Club would
like to know. Commercial


entries are particularly en-
couraged.
The very first commercial
winner back in 1988 was
Criolla's of Grayton Beach.
Past winners in the com-
mercial category also in-
clude The Old Miller Place
in Grayton Beach (1991),
The Gourd Garden on 30A
(1995), Emerald Coast RV
(now Topsail Hill Preserve
Park) and Gunby's on the
Curve (joint winners) 1997,
Bayou Arts and Antiques -
now owned by the County
(1998), Pickets of Seagrove
Beach (2000). Church
grounds have also featured
prominently in past years
- namely Christ the King
Episcopal Church in Santa
Rosa Beach, and Resur-
rection. Catholic Church in
Miramar Beach.
The 2007 winner was Pe-
.rennials and Natives by a
Girl called Toni (currently
located in Grayton Beach).


SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


It's been a while since I've
reported on life at Casa Ca-
nine in Red Bay. Soon it will
be a full two months since
I added:Spirit and Rayn to
my household. There's been
some drama, some adven-
ture, some misadventures
and' some misbehavior, but
in general things are set-
tling down into a workable
and enjoyable routine.
When I adopted Spirit, I
was aware she had not been
spayed and part of the adop-
tion fees paid for herii.iclud-
'ed the surgery needed to en-
sure. she would be out' of the
puppy producing business.
She had puppies several
weeks before I got her and
nobody wanted !anymore.
Rayn had already been neu-
tered and was good to go.
As things happened, there
were some complications in
getting the surgery. Alaqua
Animal Refuge is trying to
enlist the services of local
vets to provide the surgeries
in exchange for a voucher
provided to dog adopters,
but there was some confu-,
sion and delay in .my case.
The upshot was Spirit went
into heat unknown to
me until I happened upon
a scene of doggy love in my
kitchen.
Come to think of it, it
wasn't even doggy love. Spir-
it looked -and was trapped
and Rayn just looked bored,
but nevertheless, it wasn't
anything I expected and
certainly nothing I had ever,
seen before.. .they really do:
get stuck for instance. Yikes!
I sort of freaked out when I
realized Spirit was soiling
everything she sat on and
whisked her back to Alaqua
to sit out her confinement.
I've been thinking of chang-
ing her name to Bad Dog
Poops on Floor, but she is,
finally getting with the pro-
gram, I think.
While she was gone, Rayn
became ever more clingy.
He has been a snuggle-
bunny from the start, but
this was different. There
was no longer another dog
to amuse him and he didn't
want to let me out of his
sight, which presented some


problems when I needed to
leave the house. It's difficult
to dissuade a 43-pound agile
dog from charging out the
door with you. I tried every-
thing...gently grabbing his
halter and hauling him back
into another room and ex-
plaining if I didn't work, he
wouldn't eat. He looked at
me like he understood and
sat, patiently while I talked'
to him, but he knew he had
seen me close the door to the
office and put on my. shoes
and by God he was going to
get' in. the car if he had to
knock me down to do it. One
time I literally had his head
trapped in the do6rframe
while I. was on the first step
out the back door. I finally
disengaged the door and got
out, but I was exhausted.
, While I was gone he'
showed his disdain for be-
ing left behind by unrolling
the toilet paper and strew-
ing it all over the house. Not
a costly form of destruction,
but one that takes some
time cleaning up. This sort
of behavior continued for a
while me fighting to get
out the door and then hav-
ing to scold him when I re-
turned. When Spirit came
back .I thought it -might
ease up a little, but he is
one determined dog. The fi-
nal confrontation came one
morning when I was already
running late. I hate being
late for anything and I sim-
ply did not have time to do
this dance with Rayn. When
he charged after me, I sim-
ply went manic and started
screaming at the top of my
lungs and advancing on him
like I was intent on murder.
He backed up all the way
to the living ropm and sat
down and I turned and went
out the door. Since then, he
has allowed me to come and
go without real protest and
only on that first crazy day
did he unroll the toilet paper
- but he left it in a pile in
the bathroom. When I came
home and saw it, I laughed.
I could picture his feet un-
rolling it -while he thought
evil thoughts-about me, but
since he was no longer sure
who he was dealing with, he

In 2007 an honorable men-
tion went to for Sandi Mill-
er's third grade class at But-
ler Elementary School. In
2008, one of the runners-up
in the commercial category
was Dragonfly Designs and
Detail; they went on to re-
ceive the National Oasis
Award given by Garden De-
sign magazine. The 2008
winner in the commercial
category was Friends of
Eden State Park, a team of
volunteers headed by Wayne
Carlisle, grounds chairman.
Residential winners have
come from all over the south
Walton area from Freeport
in the North (The Beamons
in 1988 and the Plaices in
1995), to Point Washington
and Seagrove Beach (The
Marses and Matiches in
1997), as well as several on
30A and Sandestin. In 2008,
the judges selected David
and Dixie Holder's shade
garden as the winder for the
residential category. The
Holders live in the Fischer's
Landing neighborhood.
Gardens are judged using
the Standards for Evaluat-
ing Landscape Design as
set forth by the National
Council of States Garden
Clubs, Inc. using the fol-
lowing guidelines: First Im-
pressions, Purpose, Design
(functional and aesthetic),
Implementation, Mainte-
nance, and Final Impres-
sion. After initial screening
by GTGC committee mem-
bers, the final selection will
be judged by Randy Harel-
son and Kendal Horne, who
are professional horticultur-
alists and designers.
Preliminary judging
will take place April 28 -
29. Winners will be recog-
nized at the GTGC monthly
meeting on May 20 at Caf6
Provence. Anyone wishing
to submit a garden for eval-
uation, either residential, or
commercial, should contact
Ellen Tabor, event chair-
man, at 267-04,17 between
March 27 and April 27.

term of office.


"Are you serious with
this question?"
-Chairman John Magee

"In the past there have
been questions and accusa-
tions about whitewashing
within the district. As we
grow I see the day coming
when this district has grown
so much we need to be in po-
sition to do things properly.
A five-person commission is
important," Magee said.
Citizen Dan Scupin in-
quired into the annual cost
to the district for the servic-
es of a commissioner.
Magee said if every com-
missioner took advantage of
every possible seminar and
the attendant travel and
per diem money associated
with those trips, and add-
ing in the salaries and ben-
efits, a commissioner could
potentially cost the district
$17,000 annually. Commis-
sioners are paid $400 per
month and are eligible for
health and retirement ben-
efits.
Magee said he has asked,
commissioner Hudson, who
has a background in ac-
counting, to start reviewing
salaries and expenditures in
advance of the new person-
nel. "We are going to try and
absorb that money by shift-
ing things around," he said.


"The only thing I have
is Mny reputation in the
community. Without


that I can't make a liv-
ing."

-local attorney Lori By-
tell

McQuiston then asked
what it is the commission-
ers do, which was answered
by attorney Bytell who ex-
plained the director was re-
sponsible for the day-to-day
operations while the board
oversaw expenditures and
were the parties account-
able by law. "It works very
similar to a city within a
county. Each has indepen-
dent authority," she said.
Magee noted SWMCD
has been recognized as hav-
ing one of the best manage-
ment records in the state
and in the Panhandle.
McQuiston persisted in
direct questioning saying,
"It seems top-heavy to have
five commissioners for 15
employees. What does mos-
quito control actually do?"
"Are you serious with
this question?" asked Mag-
ee.. "Mosquitoes are disease
bearing insects. You don't
have a problem now be-
cause we are controlling the
insects. We monitor 20 sta-
tions, we spray, and we keep
the insects under control.
People can come here and be
safe. We have not had West
Nile Virus here, but we have
had it all around us. We
manage the money and the
organization," he said heat-
edly.
Then McQuiston wanted
to know the land mass area
the district was responsible
for and Crawford said, "Ba-

decision."
Member Mildred Wilk-
erson agreed with Roberts,
saying, "I support their
district, but I think we as
school board members have
nothing to do with personal
property. Let them deal with
it,'not us."
Foley replied to the board
saying, the Point Washing-
ton Historical Association
is "looking for the quick-
est way we could preserve
the historic character. The
intent of what we're trying
to do should be loud and
clear."
Barnhill suggested Su-
perintendent Anderson pre-
pare a resolution supporting
the concept in general. The
resolution passed with three
ayes, Wilkerson and Roberts
opposing.
The motion unanimously
carried to amend the stu-
dent progression plan con-
cerning the definition of a
grading period.. The board
voted to define a grading pe-
riod as one semester. This
amendment came as a re-
sult of confusion over state
laws which require students
involved in extracurricular
activities to not have more
than two failing grades in
one grading period.
Board members excitedly
discussed using the current
Walton High School Media
Center furnishings' in the
new high school, which will
save over $212,000. In a
time of drastic budget cuts,
the board was relieved to
hear Wayne Miller report
that the manufacturer said
the furnishings were in "ex-


by the state and which we
do not normally maintain."
Magee said, "Spraying
is the last resort. We lar-
vicide, we treat ditches;
we keep beaver traps from
backing up water. If there
is an epidemic we will go on
state land. It is all centered
around good health. We also
keep meticulous records
here on the chemicals used
as mandated by state and
federal law."
Hudson said, "I think
we are all aware about 78
percent of the money com-
ing into Walton County is
tourist-based. I think there
is a public service provided
to. the taxpayers with this
board. There was a recom-
mendation made by the state
to increase the board after a
confidence issue by the vot-
ers. There are a lot of issues
and there is a process this
board must go through to in-
crease the size. I take what
I was asked to do very seri-
ously. This board must go
to the state of Florida to fill
a vacancy. This board was
deadlocked for a long time
with only two members. I
want everyone to know this
-organization is run profes-
sionally at the lowest pos-
sible cost to the taxpayers,"
he declared.
The board then moved
on to discuss proposals by a
number of area attorneys to
provide service to the board,
which all the commissioners
had previously reviewed.
Hudson said, "I see no

Closing the meeting, the
board unanimously recom-
mended Mildred Wilkerson
to replace WCSB Chairman
Bill Laird on the board of the

would have "a lot of fun."

the same time. I also did not
see any savings and in fact
saw higher costs plus none
that presented proposals
showed the requisite exper-
tise needed."
Crawford, who has had
issues with the current legal
representation, said he had
identified three possibilities
among the proposals.
Magee said, "Our objec-
tive was looking at cost. I
would suggest we continue
with our current represen-
tation if Bytell is willing."
Bytell indicated she was
willing to continue and not-
ed the proposals could all be
declined once they had been
presented and reviewed.
Hudson noted he was both-
ered by the fact that most
of the proposals came from
firms outside of Walton
County and he saw no rea-
son to make a change.
Crawford said, "I have
had a problem with Bytell
not returning my phone
calls in a timely manner."
Bytell said, "I don't have
a problem continuing to
work with the district. The
only thing I'm concerned
about is doing the best job
I can. The only thing I have
is my reputation in the com-
munity. Without that I can't
make a living. I don't want
to be in a position where my
ability is constantly ques-
tioned. I don't nickel and
dime this board and I didn't
bill this district when I was
forced to get up to speed
on the specifics of this kind
of board when my partner
died. It is important to me
to provide the best service.
It's not about.money to me,"
she asserted.
Hudson said, "I move we
reject all the bids and con-
tinue with the services of
Ramey and Bytell. The mo-
tion was seconded by Magee
and passed with ayes from
Hudson and Magee and a
nay from Crawford.
Another issue long dead-
locked with the two-member
board has been the issuance
of a contract for director Ste-
phen Sickerman. Crawford
has been reluctant to move
forward until the final out-
come of the lawsuit of for-
mer director Gary D'Andrea
is settled, while Magee has'
been pushing for a contract.
Crawford objected, saying
not all mosquito directors in
the state work via contract
and. "A contract increases
our liability."
Hudson said he was
concerned for both Wal-
ton County and Sickerman
and wanted both protected.
He then made a motion to
work toward drawing up a
contract at this time. The
motion was seconded and
passed by a two-to-one vote,
with Crawford again voting
no on the motion.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2009


PAGE 4-C


Who needed to travel
to New Orleans, or
Mobile, when you had
Mardi Gras brought to
DeFuniak Springs? The
kick-off gala for the
Florida Chautauqua
Assembly got things
kicked into high gear
and brought carnival to
the Florida Panhandle.

Why make the trip to
the Big Easy 6r downtown
Mobile, to feel the Mardi
Gras spirit? The kick-off
gala took place at the
DeFuniak Hotel, where
more than 70 patrons
threw on ball gowns,
spruced up their high heels
and suede shows and
tuxedos, found their most
colorful Mardi Gras masks
and beads, and danced the
night away.
While dining on Cajun
hors d' oeurves, sipping
martinis and catching up
with other revelers, guests
danced to the sounds of the
Vincent Way Jazz Trio. The
hotel was turned, into one
long carnival mambo line
and brought carnival to the
Emerald Coast.
The festivities kicked
the weekend off, along with
the entire next week as the
2009 Florida Chautauqua
Assembly got underway on
Feb. 20 with the opening
ceremonies. Hundreds
made their way ,into. the

and crafters displayed and
sold.

remarkable woman.

The day's, activities
concluded with the sounds
of the '50s and '60s,

PUBLIC NOTICE
State of Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection

You are hereby notified that the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection has is-
sued a permit under File Number WL-1008
to Walton County Board of County Com-
missioners for the construction of a timber
boardwalk, other activities, excavation
arid placement of fill pursuant to Section
161.053, Florida Statutes. Project Loca-
tion: Located between the Department
of Environmental Protection's reference
monument R-2 and R-4 in Walton County,

and construction plans may be reviewed
at the office of the Bureau of Beaches and
Coastal Systems, 5050 West Tennessee
Street, Building B, Tallahassee, Florida.

contacting the Bureau of Beaches and
Coastal Systems at (850) 488-7708, or by
writing to 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 300, Tallahassee, Florida

Any person whose substantial interests are
affected by any decision of the Department
on the application has the right to request
an administrative hearing in accordance
with the provisions of Sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Should
you desire an administrative hearing, your
request must comply with the provisions
of Rule 28-106.201 of the Florida Admin-
istrative Code, as indicated below. Send
requests for hearings to the Department of
Environmental Protection, Office of Gen-
eral Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399. The Department must receive the
request within twenty-one (21) days after
your receipt of this notice.


(e) A concise statement of ultimate facts

petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the Department's proposed
action;

(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statute .the petitioner contends require re-
versal or modification of the Department's

of how the alleged facts relate to the spe-
cific rules or statutes; and

(g) A statement of the relief sought by the

tioner wishes the Department to take with
respect tot the Department's proposed
action.

A person may request an extension of time

must do so within the time limits for filing
a petition described above and serve all
parties with the request. The request must
state why an extension is needed. The De-
partment will grant an extension only when
good cause is shown.

If a petition or request for extension of time
is filed, further order of the Department be-
comes necessary to effectuate this notice.
Accordingly, the Department's final action
may be different from the position takdn
by it in this notice. Actions undertaken by
you under this permit, pending the lapse of
time allowed for the filing of such a request
for hearing, may be subject to modifica-
tion, removal, or restoration.

Failure to petition within the allowed time
frame constitutes waiver of any right that
'such a person has to request a hearing
under Sections 120.569 and .120.57 of the
Florida Statues and to participate as a par-
ty to the proceeding. If a legally sufficient
petition for. hearing is not timely received
this notice constitutes final.agency action.
When this order becomes final, any party
to the order has the right to seek judicial
review under Section 120.68 of the Florida
Statutes and Rules 9.030(b)(1) and 9.110
of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure
by filing a notice of appeal with the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection, Office
of General Counsel, Department Clerk,

der is filed with the Department Clerk. The
notice filed with the district court must be
accompanied by the filing fee specified in
Section 35.22(3) of the Florida Statutes.
Any subsequent intervention will only be
at the approval of the presiding officer
upon motion filed under Rule 28-106.205,
Florida Administrative Code.

A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's proposed
agency action may choose to pursue me-
diation as an alternative remedy under
Section 120.573 before the deadline for
filing a petition. Choosing mediation will
not adversely affect the right to a hearing if
mediation does not result in a settlement.
The procedures for pursuing mediation
are set forth below.

A person may pursue mediation by reach-
ing a mediation agreement with all parties
to the proceeding (which include the appli-
cant, the Department, and any person who
has filed a timely and sufficient petition for
a hearing) and by showing how the sub-
stantial interests of each mediating party
are affected by the Department's action or
proposed action. The agreement must be
filed in (received by) the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, by the
same deadline as set for the above for the
filing of a petition.

The agreement to mediate must include
the following:

(a) The names, addresses, and telephone
numbers of any persons who may attend
the mediation;

(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the mediator selected by the
parties, or a provision for selecting a me-
diator within a specified time;

(f) The name of each party's representa-

or recommend settlement, and

(g) Either an explanation of how the sub-
stantial interests of each mediating party

action addressed in this notice of intent or
a statement clearly identifying the petition
for hearing that each party has already
filed, and incorporating it by reference.
(h) The signatures of all parties or their au-


PAGE 11-C
When the Department receives an ade-
quate and timely filed request for hearing,
the Department will request the assign-
ment of an administrative law judge. Once
an administrative law judge is requested,
the referring agency will take no further ac-
tion with respect to the proceeding except
as a party litigant, as long as the Division
of Administrative Hearings has jurisdiction
over the formal proceeding.

Rule 28-106,201(2), Florida Administra-
tive Code, explains what must be included
in a petition for a formal administrative
proceeding. Section 120.54(5)(b)4, Flor-
ida Statutes, and Rule 28-106.201(2) of
the Florida Administrative Code, explain
what must be included in a petition for a
formal administrative proceeding. Unless
otherwise provided by statute, and except
for agency enforcement and disciplinary
actions that shall be initiated under Rule
28-106.2015, F.A.C., initiation of proceed-
ings shall be made by written petition to
the agency responsible for rendering final
agency action. The term "petition" includes
any document that requests and eviden-
tiary proceeding and asserts the existence
of a disputed issue of material fact. Each
petition shall be legible and on 8 % by 11
inch white paper. Unless printed, the im-
pression shall be on one side of the paper
only and lines shall be double-spaced.

(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifi-
cation number, if known;

(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name, ad-
dress, and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes dur-
ing the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioner's sub-
stantial interests will be affected by the
agency determination;

(c) A statement of when and how the peti-
tioner received notice of the Department's
action;

thorized representatives.
As provided in Section 120.573 of the
Florida Statutes, the timely agreement
of all parties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections 120.569
and 120.57 for requesting and holding
an administrative hearing. Unless other-
wise agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty days of the
execution of the agreement. If mediation
results in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agreement of the
parties. Persons whose substantial inter-
est will be affected by such a modified final
decision of the Department have a right to
petition for a hearing only in accordance
with the requirements for such set forth
above, and must therefore file their peti-
tions within twenty-one days of receipt of
this notice. If mediation terminates without
settlement of the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing that the ad-
ministrative hearing processes under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 remain avail-
able for disposition of the dispute, and the
notice will specify the deadlines that then
will apply for challenging the agency ac-
tion and electing remedies under those
two statutes.

come part of a group of men
involved in a skirmish in
Camp Walton. Later, he
is part of many significant
western theater battles, in-
cluding stints in Kentucky,
Mississippi, Tennessee,
Georgia and North Caro-
lina. After the war, Red-
dick purchased 2,000 acres
of land from the Pensacola
and Atlantic Railroad at 25
cents per acre. That land is
now part of the Sandestin
resort and Four Mile Point
in southern Walton County.
Walker Reddick's book
picks up the story of living
near Choctawhatchee Bay
and listening to his father's
wartime tales. He and his
ever-growing family share
both good and bad times in
the hard-scrabble area of
Four Mile Point. His 'rec-
ollections of the area's re-
moteness and sparse popu-
lation are hard to imagine
today, given the vast devel-
opment that has covered the.
area. The family later gives
up the land because Red-
dick's father feels there are
too many people moving in
around them.
Recently, Cultural Arts


Association (CAA) Presi-
, dent Christine Burroughs
made a trip to the old Red-
dick family cemetery locat-
ed near Mack Bayou Road.
The cemetery is the location
of eight graves and once sat
in the middle of the woods.
Fortunately, it was left un-
touched, but does sit within
a housing development.
"Some people feel history
is not important and that is
not true," said Burroughs.
"The Reddicks were survi-
vors and visionaries. That
spirt is still very much part
of this area and these books
allow people to connect with
this spirit."
Both books can be pur-
chased at The Book Store in
DeFuniak Springs, the Wal-
ton County Heritage Mu-
seum in DeFuniak Springs
and Sundog Books in Sea-
side.
"The purpose of what we
do is foster the literary, per-
forming and visual arts,"
said Burroughs. "By pub-
lishing these books we are
preserving and protecting
the stories and artifacts of
the area pioneering fami-
lies."

history


to life


By JEFFREY POWELL

Reading and studying
history can, at times; be a
mind-numbing sterile ex-
ercise of memorizing dates,
names and places. Occa-
sionally though, historical
accounts appear that allow
a reader to identify with a
period through human expe-
rience. Two such books con-
cerning Walton County life
have in recent years been
re-published by the South
Walton Three Arts Alliance
(now the Cultural Arts As-
sociation). The first is Henry
William Reddick's "Seventy-
Seven Years in Dixie" and
the second is his son's work
"This is My Life" by Walker
H. Reddick Sr.
Henry Reddick's book
was first published in 1910
and focuses on his marriage
to Elizabeth McCormick
and his experiences during
the American Civil War.
Reddick, like many young
men in this part of the Pan-
handle, enlisted in the Con-
federate Army at Euchee-
anna Valley. According to
Reddick, "The ladies of the
county hoisted that flag and
marched around old Euch-
eeanna and made a direct
appeal to each man in these
never-to-be-forgotten words.
'Go, boys, to your country's
call! I'd rather be a brave
man's widow than a cow-
,ard's wife.' To those loyal
women is due the honor that
sixty of us volunteered that
bleak March day."
Reddick goes on to be-
