Walton County eyeing


grim budget numbers


By DOTTY NIST
A shortfall of between
$3.3 million and $5.5 mil-
lion is projected for Wal-
ton County's budget for the
2009-2010 fiscal year at the
current millage rate.
At a Feb 24. preliminary
budget workshop, County
Administrator Ronnie Bell
told commissioners and
county constitutional offi-
cers that there is already a
projected budget shortfall of
over $786,000 for the cur-
rent fiscal year. The only
revenue source showing
an overage for the current


year is ad valorem taxes,
which has been calculated
at $245,000 to the good, Bell
explained.
Revenues from the half-
cent sales tax. revenue shar-
ing, and gas taxes are all
projected to fall short for the
current year's budget and
for the 2009-2010 fiscal year
budget.
A decline of between sev-
en percent and 14 percent
in taxable value of existing
property in the county is ex-
pected in the 2009-2010 fis-
cal year, and new construc-
tion may decline by between


20 and 30 percent in the new
fiscal year.
Bell noted that the state
would allow the county to
raise the millage rate to the
roll-back rate, the rate that
would result in the same
amount of property taxes
being collected as the previ-
ous year, plus 4.15 percent,
to obtain additional fund-
ing. However, raising the
millage rate by that amount
was still not projected to
be sufficient to cure the ex-
pected $3.3-to-$5.5-million

Burgess announces

run for City Marshal


Ray "Buddy" Burgess has
announced his candidacy
for the office of DeFuniak
Springs City Marshal. Ray
is married to Janea Bur-
gess, who works for the
Walton County Tax Collec-
tor's office. They have two
children. Buddy and Julia
Burgess, who both reside in
Walton County.
Ray Burgess has over
24 years experience in law
enforcement, beginning in
1981 as a patrolman for
former City Marshal Clint
Hooks. Burgess worked his
way up the ranks to become
a leutenant, before success-
fully running for the top job
after Hooks' retirement.
Not only does Burgess
have on-the-job experience
as the DeFumak Springs
City Marshal, throughout
his long law-enforcement ca-
reer. he attended and com-
pleted numerous advanced


training courses and leader-
ship programs.
After becoming City
Marshal, he helped the De-
Funiak Springs Police De-
partment successfully apply
for numerous state grants
to fund the purchase of new
equipment and training ma-
terials for the officers and
supervised officer training
programs.
As City Marshal. Burgess
worked closely with the De-
Funiak Springs City Coun-
cil and always maintained
an open-door policy with the
officers and the public. His
police department was ac-
tive and aggressive when it
came to fighting crime and
putting criminals behind
bars, as previous lengthy'
arrest reports will attest.
Regarding his candidacy.
Burgess said. "I have the
time, the desire and the abil-
ity to help people: to make

our commumty safe for our
families and our children
and to safeguard the rights
of our citizens. I know the
community. I know the peo-
ple because I grew up here,

the history, the knowledge
and the experience to do the
job."

WCSB:


"Budget news


much worse"


By ASHLEY AALASON
"The budget news has
gotten much worse. Antici-
pate a further cut of $700
million in the current fis-
cal year which equates to
another two-percent cut (to
our school district). The pro-
jected deficit for next year
is now a 23 percent drop
in general revenues, which
equates to a 15 percent drop
in funding levels for educa-
tion."
Chief Financial Officer
Jim McCall relayed the
above statement from the
Commissioner of Education
to the Walton County School
Board (WCSB) Tuesday,
Feb. 24, in a budget work-
shop.
The additional 15 percent
in budget cuts, totaling $8
million, has the board and
McCall working overtime to
find solutions. As of Jan. 20.
2009, the board thought just
over $4 million had to be cut
from next year's budget. It
is now double that.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson told the somber
room full of teachers, prin-
cipals, and district employ-
ees. "We know it's going to
cut into personnel, there's
no other way around it...I
was [upset] at $4 million, I
am devastated at eight. At
$8 million. you've got to let
people go."
As of Jan. 20, 2009, the
board expected only $4.2
million in cuts and consid-
ered suggestions to pay ad-
ministrative positions and
remaining maintenance
from capital projects, reduce
discretionary budgets by 20
percent., reduce supplements
by 10 percent, restructure
the high school delivery
model, replace nine teach-
ers on DROP, revise utilities
programming, temporarily


'We know it's
going to cut into
personnel, there's
no other way
around it...I was
[upset] at $4 mil-
lion, I am devas-
tated at eight. At
$8 million, you've
got to let people
go. Superintendent
Carlene Anderson


suspend 80 percent of sick-
leave payments, eliminate
the in-house technology
grant, stop paying student
insurance except for athlet-
ics, and reduce additional
athletic program payouts by
half.
Among these suggestions
were 35.5 position reduc-
tions: 17 teachers, nine edu-
cational support personnel,
two administrative posi-
tions, one technician, two
secretarial positions, and a
psychology position.
With budget cuts doubled,
that number has increased
from 35.5 to 92 position re-
ductions by July. Of those
positions, 56.5 are instruc-
tional, 29.5 are educational
support personnel, and six
are administrative. The loss
of these 92 positions totals a
near 10-percent reduction in
the district's workforce.
In conjunction with the
56 added personnel reduc-
tions, money-saving sugges-
tions were made to elimi-
nate five physical education

"Crash" lands at



Alaqua Animal Refuge


By ALICIA LEONARD
What must have start-
ed as a good day for one
pup turned almost tragic
and then went from bad to
worse. Over the weekend a.
couple found a little shep-
herd mix beside the road.
His nail beds on his front
feet were gone and the inju-
ries and skin missing on his
back paws were devastat-
ing. Nicknamed "Crash," the
pup did have one thing go-
ing for hinb, he was brought
to Alaqua .Animal Refuge
(AAR).
"We think he was tied in


the back. of a pickup truck,
jumped out and got dragged
behind it for quite a while,"
said Laurie Hood, founder
and president of AAR, "It's
amazing that he is still
alive."
AAR Medical, Director
Bethany Jordan. said. that
Crash's story is "really sad.
I think he was tied in and
jumped, out and they. didn't
realize 'it,: so he: was drug
behind the truck: He is the
sweetest puppy, ever."
Crash is around four
months old. His injuries, ac-
cording to Jordan, 'are seri-
ous, "his front paws havehno


nail beds left. The abrasion
from the road and him try-
ing to keep up have severely
injured his front paws. His
back legs were drug on the
pavement, so he had sever
loss of skin and tissue drown
the front of his back legs."
Jordan stressed,' "People
need to understand how this
happened. This is what can
happens when pets are not
secured safely and properly
for transport. They can end
up like this or worse."
Physically, Crash will
need several months to re-
cover. His bandages need to
be changed everyday and he


will need topical creams and
be on antibiotics throughout
his recovery. "He has the
best spirit for what has hap-
pened to him. He just loves
everyone," said Hood.
Crash has a long road
ahead of him for his recov-
ery. Hood has setup an ac-
count for donations to help
Crash. To donate to Crash
or, help in some other way,

positions, eliminate middle
school sports, eliminate free
drivers' education, 'reduce
athletic events by 30 per-
cent, eliminate all field trips,
and pay only three athletic
directors' supplements, for a
total of $880,000 in savings.
In response to these sug-
gestions, board member
Mark Davis said, "I don't
want to reduce any service
to kids, frankly-reducing
athletic events, reducing
field trips-if we can make
those things a last resort. If
we can look at a way to more
equitably share the pain."
Davis asked McCall,
"Have we [priced] out if ev-
eryone in the district took a
five-percent pay cut?"
McCall replied, "Salaries
and benefits are $52 mil-
lion...a five percent cut is
$2.6 million."
McCall explained if the
WCSB did not make the cuts
suggested to reduce its ex-
penditures by $4.2 million,
to equal that would result
in an eight-percent pay cut
in every district employee's
salary. To reach the $8 mil-
lion cut, it would result in a
16-percent pay cut in every


employee's salary.
Davis responded, "I am
philosophically opposed to
a solution where only a cer-
tain number of employees
take the hit. I propose a so-
lution where we all share in
the pain."
"I would rather see ev-
erybody get less money and
still have a job," said board
member Mildred Wilkerson.
Wilkerson suggested every-
one in the district take an
equal pay cut, as well as
temporarily eliminating all
supplements.
Davis rebutted the notion
of eliminating supplements,
saying, "No group takes a
hit unless everyone takes a
hit."
Chairman Bill Laird
mentioned facing union vio-
lations if everyone were to
take an equal pay cut (some
employees could then make
less than legal wages), to
which Wilkerson replied,
"If people need a job bad
enough, they will do what-
ever it takes, right now un-
til we can get out of this
pinch."
Board member Darrell
Barnhill commented, "If we


do a reduction, I'd like to see
a tiered-reduction in pay."
Sharon Roberts asked
McCall to price the cost of
running the Tivoli School
District complex, with the
suggestion to disperse its
personnel to district schools
and close the facility. How-
ever, only Freeport High
School, Freeport Middle
School and Mossy Head El-
ementary have space to host
up to three additional per-
sonnel.
"I've got one simple ques-
tion," Barnhill said, "you've
got to give us a timeline...
we've got to have a drop-
dead date where these de-
cisions have to be made no
matter how painful they
are."
"You need to make a firm
decision by March 31," Mc-
Call told the board.
Walton County high
school principals in atten-
dance told the board they
needed a decision sooner
than March 31 on wheth-
er or not the high schools
would change from a four-
block schedule to a seven-
period day next yeai.
McCall told the board


Freeport grants new

extensions to development


By BEN GRAFTON

At the Freeport City
Council meeting in city hall
on Feb. 26, John Henderson .
appeared before the Council
and asked for an extension
on the applications for the
Anchor Bay and Builders
1st Source, projects. Delays
are occurring as a result
of current economic condi-
tions. The Council granted
six- month extensions for
both projects.
City Planner Latilda Hen-
ninger presented the second
reading of an ordinance to
re-zone a parcel of approxi-
mately seven acres opposite
the welcome center in the
Owls Head development
from R-1 residential to R-C,
residential-commercial. The
rezoning was requested
so that a hotel/convention
center may be built, on the
property at a later date. The
Council approved, the ordi-
nance.
Freeport Fire Chief Ben
Greenslait provided Coun-
cil members with' a chart
and map showing the sta-
tus of the. fire hydrant
maintenance program with
outstanding issues high-
lighted. Flow testing for the
hydrants is expected to be
complete within the next
month. Greenslait also pro-
vided a current inventory of
equipment on hand in the
Fire Department.
The Fire Department will
hold Freeport's annual Eas-
ter egg hunt from noon to 3
p.m. on April 11 at the Free-
port Regional Sports Com-
plex at Hammock Bay.
Parks Director Shane
Supple reported that a small



Naylo rJRealt[
S *. 'at
Nalr [atUS] o


press box would be provided
at the park and that repairs
have been made to the park's
griddle.
Supple said that the adult
softball program had start-
ed on the evening of Feb. 25
and that the city soccer pro-
gram sign-up will be held
at the Sports Complex on
March 7.
There will be a car show
at the Sports Complex fea-
turing singing groups and a
bike show. This is expected
to be, a "big event." Supple
asked for and received au-
thority to open a food ac-
count for the Sports Com-
plex so that supplies may
be ordered when needed.
The Council approved the
request, provided proposals
are received from at least
two distributors.
City Enginieer Charles
Peters reported that con-
struction was proceeding on
No. 7 water well. The depth
is down to 600 feet. In pre-
liminary tests, flows up to
2,000 gallons per minute
have been achieved with
water quality looking good.
Acceptance pumping tests
were scheduled for March 2.
Well design calls for pump-
ing rates of 1,200 gallons
per minute and tests will be
conducted at 1,800 gallons
per minute, 50 percent over
design.
The final punch list for
the sewage plant expansion
was prepared on Feb. 24.
Quality of samples taken


last week was satisfactory.
Peters reported on the
status of research into .re-
quirements to meet Eg-
lin AFB specifications for
granting an easement along
the right-of-way of SR-20 for
the extension of the Freeport
water system to the west by
about seven miles. The ap-
plication will have to provide
for, three functions: a base
line survey; an archaeology
survey and an environmen-
tal assessment. Requests
for bids for this work will
only be sent to contractors
who have previous experi-
ence doing these surveys on
base property. At a later day
an assessment of the value
of the easement value will
have to be obtained and the
city's cost for the easement
determined.
Mayor Mickey Marse an-
nounced that the grant, for
the water system extension
project has been increased
to $800,000, a sum that
should provide for the added
costs of the surveys required
by the base.
Tami Ray of Malcolm
Pirnie, Inc. made a presen-
tation to the Council to ex-
plain the firm's services in
the field of grant acquisition
for municipalities. The firm
does not work with Com-
munity Development Block
Grants but it does do work
on other types of grant ap-
plications. The Council will
consider the material pre-
sented.

districts across the state
are leaving the four-block
schedule in droves because
it saves money. With this
information, the WCSB
told high school principals
they would be returning to
a seven-period day in the
upcoming school-year. Ar-
rangements will be made for
sophomores, juniors, and se-
niors next year to receive all
credits without interruption
to their graduation date.
Before McCall turned his
presentation over to Super-
intendent Anderson he said,
"No one regards this as a
joke. No one thinks some-
how, some way, this is going
to get better."

Superintendent Anderson
informed the room that when
it comes to state funding for
public education, Florida
is 47th in expenditures per
,person in K-12 education
and 50th in personal income
spent on public schools. Yet
Florida is 10th in the nation
on test scores and Walton
County is an A+ district.
Anderson noted in light of
the drastic budget cuts, not
only are jobs and programs
at risk, so are class-size re-
duction compliance and ac-
creditation by the Southern
Association of Colleges and
Schools (both of which are


necessary for the district to
receive certain funding).
Anderson requested ev-
ery employee, parent, stu-
dent, and citizen of Walton
County contact their legisla-
tors to tell them you support
public school funding and


are appalled by Florida's
funding 6f public education.
The WCSB will hold a
special meeting, Tuesday,
March 24, at 5 p.m. in the
Walton High School audito-
rium to finalize budget cut
decisions.

Editorial Comment

Waziristan,

anyone?
By BRUCE COLLIER
Assistant Editor's comment
The domestic economy is on everyone's mind these days,
but some things are getting set to happen overseas that
bear attention. President Obama recently expressed his in-
tention of sending 17,000 troops to Afghanistan. Obama-in-
tends to clear U.S. troops out of Iraq by next year, and some
of that 17,000 will probably be drawn from trpops presently
deployed in Iraq. Most of the troops to be sent are Marines,
and it doesn't take a military expert to guess their purpose
Marines are combat troops.
As for the strategic plan, the president has, been quoted
elsewhere as saying, "I think there are achievable goals in
Afghanistan, and the achievable goal is to make sure it's
not a safe haven for terrorists, to make sure that the Af-
ghan people are able to determine their own fate. There's a
long history, as you know, in Afghanistan of rebuffing what
is seen as an occupying force, and we have to be mindful of
that history as we think about our strategy."
It's been pretty much public knowledge since Sept. 11,
2001 that terrorist groups like Taliban and Al-Qaida have
training bases and sanctuaries in Afghanistan. It may not
be quite so widely known that there are both Afghan and
Pakistani branches of Taliban, and that both groups move
more or less freely across the borders of the two adjoining
nations. The highest concentration of U.S. "provincial re-
construction teams" is on the Afghan/Pakistan border. Oth-
er NATO teams are in place as well, in the north and west.
There are currently some 47,600 troops from 39 nations in
Afghanistan, drawn (in-descending order of strength) from
the United States, the U.K., Germany, France, Canada, It-
aly, the Netherlands, Poland, Australia, Spain, Denmark,
Turkey and Norway. At 17,790, American troop strength is
by far the greatest. The U.K. is a distant second at 8,380.
Why are they where they are? Waziristan. Not exactly a
household word. Yet.
Waziristan (literally, "land of the Waziris") is in Paki-
stan, on the Afghan border. It is reportedly the home-base'
of the Pakistani'Taliban. Until recently; Waziristan has
been the site of a power struggle among three rival war-
lords, one of whom has been implicated in the assassination
of Pakistan's former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. The
Pakistani government has been unable to control the three
groups, which presumably have been killing each other
with as much, or more, zest as they kill infidels. That may
be changing. Enter Mullali Omar. "
Mullah Omar is the founder of the Afghan Taliban, and
has the respect and apparently the loyalty of the Pakistan
Taliban. Omar has beeii cited in the Pakistani preas as hav-
ing sent a letter to the quarreling factions.
The letter states, "If anybody really wants to wage Jihad,
he must fight the occupation forces inside Afghanistan. At-
tacks on the Pakistani security forces and killing of fellow
* Muslims by the militants in the tribal areas and elsewhere
in Pakistan is bringing a bad name to Mujahideen and'
harming the war against the U.S. and NATO forces in Af-
ghanistan." If it were possible for a militant Muslim cleric/
terrorist to possess a sense of humor, I'd say that "bring-
ing a bad name to Mujahideen" was the mullah's idea of a
tension-breaker.
Omar's letter seems to have led to a burying of the hatch-
et, and the three groups are making nice for the time be-
ing. In fact, they've formed yet another group, the Council
of United Holy Warriors. Why? The Americans are coming
in force. The head of the Pakistani military has also been
quoted as saying that they have no plans to move offen-
sively in Waziristan. Understandably, since the Americans
are coming in force.
Spring is coming, bringing a thaw in the weather and an
upsurge in military activity. President Obama is sending a
sizable force into Afghanistan, apparently for the dual pur-
pose of makihig the area unsafe for terrorists and safe for
the Afghans to determine their own fate. Sounds like a por-
tion of them three gangs of assassins and suicide bombers
have already doie the latter service for the rest of them.
In Congress, both Democrats and Republicans are asking
for a clear statement of why we are committing a force to
Afghanistan'.
For the record, Obama did spend his campaign saying
that Afghanistan was where we should be focusing our mil-
itary, though I once saw an Obama bumper sticker with a
peace symbol in the "O." I am still trying to figure out that
voter's mind. However, the majority of voters apparently
agreed with Obama, and he has undertaken what he said
he would do.
What he has not yet done is given the American people
a clear-cut mission plan for Afghanistan. Sadly, this has
become standard operating procedure for American presi-
dents. With the exception of George H.W. Bush, who kept
his stated promise to bring home .the troops from Desert
Storm once Iraq was driven from Kuwvait, the presidential
habit has been "commit troops now, figure out what to do
with them later." As for telling the people the parents and
families of the armed forces why they are being asked to
sacrifice, what's the difficulty?


Can someone articulate the plan for us, including spe-
cific goals? Give us a timetable? Or is this just Iraq all over
again? Saddam Hussein is dead, good riddance to him, but
are we going to be in Afghanistan until we see Osama bin
Laden at the end of a rope? Granted, it's the best place for
him, but is this the best road to it? Obama apparently is
aware of enough Afghanistan history to know it won't be
a walk, as witnessed by his observation about "rebuffing
what is seen as an occupying force...." In any event, about
the only thing we can do is learn how to spell "Waziristan,"
since a lot is going to be written about it.
Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Queen Victoria,
and Leonid Brezhnev all could tell the president some-
thing, though. They all committed forces to Afghanistan.
None succeeded in doing much of anything except getting a
lot of their soldiers killed. Being sovereign monarchs, they
didn't have as much explaining to do to their people as will
Obama. Still, one of them might tell him about Afghani-
stan's nickname. The Graveyard of Empires.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY MARCH 5, 2009

Avadab' from Commerclal News Providers

1 y4'ze:


Editor,
Last night I attended a meeting of the Darlington Com-'
munity Center Association held with members of the county
commission and administration. The purpose of the meet-
ing was to discuss the possibility of turning our old school
building and grounds over to the county for development
and maintenance. The old Darlington School is the only
educational facility still standing for most of the commu-
:nity members attending the meeting and is an important
landmark of our community.
IMany possible future uses were discussed recreation,
library, education classes, community functions, and county
functions (voting, sheriffs office, county vehicle parking,).
All of which would improve our community, bring county
services closer to the community and help our county be
more efficient.
The community board presented this idea as a way to
save and better utilize this historic building. In turn, the
county agreed to continue working with the community to
shape future changes and use of the building and grounds.
Community 'members vqted. unanimously to go forward
with the transfer as proposed and plans are for the Walton
* County Commission to vote on this proposal at their March
24, 2009 meeting.
Many people were thanked for their efforts to save the
school over the past few years and they earned and de-
served the acknowledgement. However, there is one group
of people that were not mentioned who are in fact, primar-
ily responsible for the fact that our old school is still stand-
ing inmates from our county and state prisons.
Working with these in-voluntary volunteers was ex-
tremely educational for me. It helped shine a light on a
part of our system of government that I had .never tried
to understand our prison system. Inmates volunteered to
work for lunch and some for cigarettes. They were in their
20s, 30s, 40s and some like'me, retired. Each was there
for some minor crime. They just wanted to be out working.
They made me question what we call and how we punish
"crime".
There was always a waiting line to demolish and replace
old sills and rotten siding and patch the leaky roof. State
prisoners set up shop in the old auditorium and custom
built frames and installed the hew windows. County pris-
.oners painted rooms and landscaped and maintained the
grounds. I thank them for all their work on the Darlington
School and for helping me to better understand them and
our prison'system.

Editor:
It's a funny thing to observe law enforcement in a small
town. Once such example is the DeFuniak Springs Police
Department. In particular, their refusal to evenly apply
the law, in the traffic code and park regulations. The police
department can sit on highways entering the city writing
tickets for speeding. Yet, to get them to enforce parking
regulations is, at the least, non-existent.
The shining example and testimony to the community
is the area around First Baptist church. On a Sunday
morning, one can see amazing examples of how not to park.
Cars parked on the wrong side of the street, cars parked on
curbs, cars parked on the walksways. All violations and all
traffic hazards. Where is one supposed to cross the street,
when the walksway is blocked? Where is one supposed to
drive when there is barely room for one car to pass, and
on the wrong side of the road? What is one to do when the
driver of the car parked on the wrong side of the road, pulls
into traffic?. Is, the PD going to be responsible for damages,
or maybe First Baptist church? It is a litigious society, and,
one would believe, consideration for this would be made.
However, when one brings this to the attention of the
good old boys at DSFPD, one gets treated like a jerk and
ignored.
First Baptist folks 'should do better and the Bible does
tell them to obey the law. But I suppose they don't read that'
part, or they don't care about their testimony. Actions like
this by First Baptist and DeFuniak Springs Police Depart-
ment are why DeFuniak Springs will remain stymied and
stalled in the past.
The town council ignores this because of the income First
Baptist produces. Gee, what is that, maybe corruption?
Keep it up it shows that some folks are above the law and
the rest of us foot the bill.

First the politicians came and nationalized the banks. I
didn't speak up because I wasn't a banker.
Then they came and nationalized health care. I didn't
speak up because I wasn't a medical specialist.
Then they came and nationalized all public utility com-
panies. I didn't speak up because I held no stock with
phone, light and water companies.
Then they came and nationalized all the churches, by
that time no one was left to speak up for me.
This Democrat believes we are going to see more change
than we really want.

Editor,
In a recent editorial, President Obama was criticized for
his efforts to get an economic stimulus bill passed by Con-
gress because the bill would add more billions to the na-
tional debt. What the editor fails to point out is that when
George Bush took office over eight years ago we actually
has a national surplus. President Bush and his Republican
administration dug the finaficial hole that our country is
in now, not President Obama. No matter who was elected
president last November, Obama or McCain, there was go-
ing to be an economic stimulus bill passed this year be-
cause our country is in financial trouble and we need help
on such a large scale that only the federal government can
provide it.
President Bush turned a surplus into a trillion dollar
debt in part by cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans
while at the same time waging wars in two foreign coun-
tries. If anyone is to be criticized for the debt left for future
taxpayers, that criticism should be directed at the guilty
party Bush and the republicans not those who are now
stepping in to try to salvage what is left of our economy.
Bush had eight years in office; Obama has had one month.
Hopefully over the next eight years President Obama can
undo the damage that George Bush and the Republican
party did to this country.

Editor,
This letter is in response to the article regarding the
Florida Chautuaqua Theater.
As a parent and volunteer of the Theater, I would like
to say a big thank-you to Mrs. Beth Campbell-Work for her
dedication to our young people. Mrs. Beth, along with the
many volunteers and young people involved in the theater,
put in numerous hours of practice and preparation into each
production.
Sure there are some activities in schools and in the com-
munity for our young people, but for those not into those
types of activities, several choose to be part of the theater..
These young people express themselves beyond who they
truly are by acting. As for the use of the theater by the
community, well, aren't these young people part of our com-
munity? It is being used for our community, and for some
people to get upset and appalled because they were turned
down when asked to use the theater, so what? As a par-
ent and volunteer of the Florida Chautauqua Theater, I feel
that the use of the facility is being used by and for the com-
munity, through our young people.
In closing, I would again like to thank Mrs. Beth and
the Florida Chautuaqua Theater for helping to fulfill the
.dreams of so many young people over the years, including
my daughter.

Editor:
Congratulations to the students at Paxton, Walton and
Freeport High Schools. Your manners during the recent
Chautauqua Assembly piano concerts by David Crohan
were excellent.
Mr. Crohan, who has performed for the Kennedy, Rea-
gan, Bush (senior) and Clinton presidential families was
charmed by the wonderful reception accorded him by these
local young audiences. They, were respectfully quiet and at-
tentive throughout the performances and responded enthu-
siastically at the appropriate times. The students gave Mr.
Crohan standing ovations at all three schools even when his
music classical to jazz- might not have been well-known to
most of the audiences.
Blind from birth, David Crohan was playing music by ear
at the age of 2, then learned to read Braille music during
his K-12 school years at Perkins School for the Blind. He
went on to earn two masters degrees in music and owned a
piano-bar restaurant in Martha's Vinyard, Massachusetts.
For the past five years, he has performed regularly at Cafe
L'Europe in Palm Beach, FL. Mr. Crohan's message, deliv-
ered through his vibrant piano mastery which encouraged
his audience to face hard times then work to find and excel
in their individual talents, was a well received lesson.
Congratulations are also in order to the parents and
school faculty/administrators. You have obviously done a
good job raising these future patrons of the arts. The entire
community can be extremely proud of these young folks.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 5,2009


Officials call for more


time on bridge proposal


By DOTTY NIST
Few people in Walton
County would disagree that
wideningthe Choctwhatchee
bay bridge is a good idea, but
some, including the county
commission, appear to have
qualms about a recent pro-
posal by a private company
that would have that result.
At a current estimated
cost of, $280 million, the
'bridge expansion has rep-
resented the most difficult
part of the ongoing effort to
get U.S. 331 widened to four
lanes from north Walton
County to the beaches area.
Accomplishing -the widen-
ing of U.S. 331, the county's
evacuation route, has been
a priority for local officials
and community members
for decades. In recent years
county officials have enlist-
ed lobbyists to seek state
and federal funds to expand
the overloaded two-lane
road. They have also made a
number of trips to Tallahas-
see and Washington, D.C.,
to ask for project funding.
In 2005, the Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) met with
representatives of Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise, part
of the state Department
of Transportation (DOT)
that constructs road and
bridges that are primarily
user- funded through tolls.
Expanding the bay bridge
through the turnpike en-
terpris'e had been suggested
by DOT officials as a way to
accomplish bridge widening
more quickly. However, the
idea of a toll bridge was not
a popular one, and the com-
missioners did not pursue
action on this possibility.
Last week, at the Feb. 24
BCC regular meeting, the
commissioners were pre-
sented with information on
a recent, proposal in connec-
tion with U.S. 331 and the
pay bridge. The information,
included a letter from at-


torney Michael B. Duncan
on behalf of the Northwest
.Florida Transportation Cor-
ridor Authority (NFTCA).
Duncan stated that the
organization had received
an unsolicited proposal for
a public/private partner-
ship to expand to four lanes
the road section between
the south end of the Clyde
B. Wells Bridge (the bay
bridge) and SR-20 in Free-
,port, including construction
of a parallel bay bridge, to
result in a four-lane bridge
facility.
Proposing to "design,
build, operate and finance"
the project was a private
.entity, "Moving US 331
Forward, L.L.C." Informa-
tion to the NFTCA on the
proposal was provided by
Denver Stutler, the L.L.C.'s
"managing 'member," and
a' former DOT transporta-
tion secretary under the Jeb
Bush administration. The
Florida Department of State
Division of Corporations
lists Robert S. Hightower,
a Tallahassee attorney, as
registered -agent for Moving
US 331 Forward, L.L.C.
The L.L.C. had provided
few details on the proposal
but had included mention of
the use of "stimulus funds"
and "tolling" in the event
those funds proved inad-
equate. The company an-
ticipated later providing "a
detailed funding plan."
Among the many powers
of the NFTCA, an agency
of the state created by the
2005 Florida Legislature,
are the ability to request
proposals for public/private
transportation projects and
to review, approve or reject,
and to negotiate such pro-
posals, whether requested
or unsolicited..
"The NFTCA has no posi-
tion yet regarding the pror-
posed partnership and proj-
ect," Duncan stated in his
letter to the BCC. "Instead,
the NFTCA is prepared to


commence its statutorily
provided process for han-
dling an unsolicited propos-
al for a public private part-
nership," he wrote.
Duncan explained that
there would be a 60-day
public 'notification period
during which "it is expected"
that all parties interested in
doing the project, including
Moving US 331 Forward,
L.L.C., and any competing
proposers, would submit
their detailed proposals near
the end of those 60 days.
He further explained that
review and ranking of pro-
posals by NFTCA would fol-
low, in consideration of "the
interests and input of Wal-
ton County and its citizens."
Then, Duncan concluded,
the NFTCA's options would
include negotiating with the
highest-ranked proposer, or
with Moving US 331 For-
ward, L.L.C., 'if that had
been the only proposal, or
rejecting all proposals.
At the Feb. 24 BCC meet-
ing, County Administrator
Ronnie Bell told the com-
missioners that the NFTCA
was not asking them for a
recommendation but. was
just providing information.
"They will seek your. input,"
he noted, and input from
the public."
One concern brought for-
ward by M.C. Davis, Walton
County businessman and
conservationist, was that
the, proposal could appar-
ently be accepted and nego-
tiated by the NFTCA with-
out the approval of the BCC.
"Who gave them this unique
power?" he asked.
Davis 'said he would be
completely for the project
if the citizens were in favor
of it, but he objected to both
the scarcity of the informa-
tion being provided and the
short time frame proposed
for consideration of this
$300-$400 million project.
"What is the urgency for
60 days?" he asked, calling

THE EXPANSION of the bridge spanning the Choctawhatchee Bay in Walton Coun-
ty has represented the most difficult part of the ongoing effort to get U.S. 331 four-laned
countywide, with the bridge expansion cost recently estimated at $280 million. Recently a
private company offered to expand the section of U.S. 331 from the south end of the bridge
to SR-20 in Freeport. The project would include widening the bridge to four lanes by con-
structing a second parallel bridge across the bay.


for a much longer notifica-
tion period to allow for the
public to get informed and
to encourage competing pro-
posals.
Davis said he had not pre-
viously heard the word "toll"
in connection with the pro-
posal, an indication that the
public has not been provided
with "the total picture." He
expressed strong opposition
to a private company from
outside the area "coming in
and owning" this important
part of the county's trans-
portation network.
"That time line is ridicu-
lous!" weighed in Driftwood
Estates resident Alan Os-
borne.
County Commission
Chair Sara Comander con-
trasted the situation with
the Mid-Bay Bridge in Oka-
loosa County, a toll bridge,
with Walton County's situ-
ation. She pointed out that
taking the toll bridge is not

boring county, that there are
other north-south routes.
This would not be the case
in Walton County if the bay
bridge became a toll facility,
since 'it is on the county's
only north-south route, she
remarked.
Comander encouraged
citizens to contact the com-
missioners with their input


on this proposal.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones made a mo-
tion to send a letter to the
NFTCA asking the organi-
zation to lengthen the pub-
lic notification process for
the Moving US 331 Forward
proposal to a six-month time
frame. His motion was ap-
proved unanimously.

HEALTH MATTERS:

When is the Right Time to Call Hospice?


By Dr. Leonard Hock
Covenant Hospice
Facing everyday life with
all its struggles and trials
is difficult enough, but fac-
ing the end of our life just
seems overwhelming. For
anyone faced with the de-
cision of when to contact a
hospice, it is a very stress-
ful and emotional time, but
it doesn't have to be. When
you or someone you love
faces a life-limiting illness,
the time to contact a hospice
provider is now. As a matter
of fact, most families who
have had the help of hospice
with their loved ones will
tell you that they only wish
they had called a hospice
sooner.

son and said he planned to
continue the fine work that
Adkinson had begun, as
well as to see what could be
done to increase efficiency
and productivity. :
Burgess said the key to

tion is responsibility. "As

Hospice providers, like
Covenant Hospice, are com-
mitted to taking this jour-
ney with you. The focus of
hospice care is on caring
for individuals, and allow-
ing them to live as fully
and comfortably as pos-
sible. Hospice carn make the
meaningful difference in the
lives of patients, and in no
way is calling a hospice pro-
vider giving up. It can actu-
ally enhance the life of the
patient, and therefore the
family.
Hospice services are
available to individuals who
have a life-limiting illness

and a hospice medical direc-

Not-for-profit hospice
providers will provide care
to patients without regard'
to illness, age, race, color,
creed, gender, national ori-
gin, ethnicity, disability,
life circumstances, payment
source, or ability to pay.
These providers, such as
Covenant Hospice, provide
care based on need and not

Patient referrals are most
frequently made by physi-
cians. However, anyone can
make a hospice referral,

There is still much work to
be done. I humbly thank
the citizens of DeFuniak

and I ask for their support

neighbors, friends or the

into how many local physi-

American Red Cross

supports deploying military

families and members


The American Red Cross
has taken care of Ameri-'
can military members since
Clara Barton cared for the
wounded during the Civil
War. Today, the Red Crops
is having trouble reaching
all military members and
their families when they
deploy to Iraq and Afghani-
stan as, an individual aug-
mentee. "Military members
don't always .go. through
the traditional deployment
lines when they leave the lo-
cal area. Often, they are go-
ing alone or in small groups.
The families aren't given
the traditional support that
is available when this hap-
pens and often, they don't
know how to seek out the
helping agencies" said Sheri
Frost, Chief Executive Offi-
cer for the, organization and
a retired Navy spouse.
The American Red Cross


has a deployment "ditty bag"
for each military member
when they leave, along with
contact information for each
family member. This bag
includes personal toiletries,
snacks, an international
phone card and a few other
items. The member is also
able to give the Red Cross
contact info for their fami-
lies so Red Cross can reach
them to check on'them.
Additionally, they are
able to refer family mem-
bers to all the other helping
agencies. "Fleet and Family
Support, the Navy Marine
Corp Relief Society, USO
all provide important tools
for families who have a de-
ployed military member. To-
gether we are all seeking to
provide the best support in
very difficult times for both
the family and the active
duty member" said Shari


Trujillo, Red Cross Station
Coordinator on NAS Pen-
sacola. "We work very hard
not to duplicate our services
but to ensure each military
and family member is cared
for."
Persons with a military,
family member who de-
ployed alone and who are
not sure how or where to
seek help may contact the
Red Cross at 1-800-773-
7620 and ask for -Military
Services. Military, members
deploying alone, should con-
tact the Red Cross so they
can provide, a deployment
briefing and ditty bag. For

The American Cancer
Society Relay For Life of
South.Walton County is just
around the corner. Register
a team today by calling the
American Cancer Society at
(850) 244-244-3813 ext. 116.
This "celebration of life"
brings the Walton County
community together in a
unified effort to fight can-
cer.
Former and current can-
cer patients, their families,
businesses, civic organiza-
tions, and the public are
- invited to take part in this
exciting team event. Relay
:For Life takes place from
noon on Saturday,. April
25, until 6 a.m. on Sunday,
April 26, at South Walton
High School on.,U.S. 331
South, Santa Rosa Beach.
Relay For Life is the
American Cancer Society's
version of an athletic relay,
but with a new twist. Relay
For Life is a family-oriented
event where participants


enjoy the camaraderie of a
team and also raise funds to.
support the activities of the
American Cancer Society.
At this year's event, which
is designed to be similar to a
family festival, participants
will camp out overnight at
the relay site, and when
they .are not taking their
turn walking, they take part
in fun activities and enjoy
local entertainment.
Teams from companies.,
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 whb 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
the generosity of corporate
sponsors like CHELCO,
the money raised by par-
ticipants goes directly to the
American Cancer Society's
'lifesaving programs.,"'.

DFS teen center celebrates one year


anniversary with community open house


The DeFuniak Springs
Boys & Girls Club Teen
Center (BGCA) invites the
community to celebrate
their one-year anniversary
on Saturday, March 7, from
11 a.m. 3 p.m. with food.
and festivities during their
open house event.
The celebration will in-
clude free hot dogs and
hamburgers, balloons, open
court basketball, music and
fun for all. Come and see
what our teens have accom-
plished over the last year
and learn about the great
opportunities the club has
to offer new members.
The Teen Center current-
ly has over 100 members on
its roll with 45 to 60 kids at-
tending daily after school.


Programs at the Teen Cen-
ter are focused on develop-
ing academic skills, charac-
ter, and healthy lifestyles.
The Teen Center serves
middle and high school aged
youth.
Below are some highlights
from the year and detailed
information on programs
emphasized at the Center.
Academic Success
75 percent of DeFuniak
Teen Center High School
students were able to bring
up their grades in the sec-
ond quarter. 59 percent of
Middle School students did
the same. A national survey
in 2007 polled Boys & Girls
Club alumni to measure the
impact the club had on the
students' academic success.


The 2007 Harris Survey
found that 90 percent of club
alumni graduated from high
school or earned an equiva-
lent degree, compared to
the national average of 85
percent. In addition, nearly
two-thirds (63 percent) re-
ported that club staff con-
tributed to their success in
High/School.
Good Character and
Leadership
Nationally, 15-19 year
olds account for more than
20 percent of violent crimes
in the U.S. Character edu-
cation contributes to re-
duced juvenile crime. In the
one year period since the
opening of the DeFuniak
Springs Teen Center Juve-
nile Crime in Walton Coun-


ty has dropped 27 percent.
Studies show that stu-
dents involved in service
learning have improved
problem-solving and conflict
resolution skills. The Har-
ris survey found that 85 per-
cent of club alumni say staff
members helped them un-
derstand right from wrong,
while 77 percent attributed
learning good leadership
skills to their club experi-
ence.
Healthy Life Styles
Since the 1970s the na-
tional rate of obesity has
more than tripled for 6-11
year olds. In 2005, 9.9 per-
cent of youth ages 12-17
were currently illicit drug
users.
On the other hand, BG-


CA's healthy lifestyles pro-
grams pay off for youth. In
the Harris survey, 80 per-
cent of club alumni reported
that the club taught them
about health and fitness.
The survey also showed that
two-thirds of alumni be-
lieved the club helped them
make responsible choices
"about drugs and alcohol.
The DeFuniak Teen Cen-
ter also includes programs
targeting a reduction in teen
childbirth. In 2006, the teen
(ages 15-19) birth rate per
1,000 in Walton County was
48.0 compared to the state
average of 43.5
Improving Families and
our Community
The Teen Center offers a


safe and inexpensive place
for young people to go af-
ter school, allowing parents
to find work or retain their
jobs, generating more in-
come and less use of govern-
ment benefits. This also al-
lows for a greater number of
parents to return to school
to upgrade their skills and
improve their economic well
being.
The club also creates
a wider social network for
parents allowing them to
achieve a sense of belonging
and citizenship.

For more information on
the open house or member-
ship, contact Bobbie Smith
at 892-3752.

is not a part of "voodoo" nor
is it a place for performing

very smart decisions along
the way, which assured their
success. The first decision
they made was to "share the
spotlight" and we all know

Perhaps one of the most
important quotes I heard

struction Manager Cliff
Knauer of Preble-Rish Con-
struction designed the new
boardwalk that was con-
structed through cypress
trees over to the "boil" at
Mor'rison Springs, as well as
other amenities.
The spring was temporar-
ily closed for construction of
the new park that includes
educational pavilions and
landings for divers.
Morrison Springs has
been a nationally-recognized
and popular diving location
for decades just outside the


small town of Ponce de Leon,
but just inside the Walton
County boundary line. The
state acquired Morrison
Springs from private owners
just over two years ago, and
Walton County is managing
the property in cooperation
with the state. Construction
of the $1.3 million park proj-
ect started in January.
Thursday, Commissioner
Brannon was joined by the
rest of the Walton County
Commission to officially
open the park to the public.

The event drew a large
crowd of well-wishers and
supporters as Brannon and
the staff gave tours of the
new grounds.

The Voluntary PreKiri-
dergarten (VPK) Readiness
Rates have been released
by the Florida Department
of Education and Walton
County, School District's
Summer program results
show success. There. are
two types of VPK programs
that currently exists in the
state delivery model: school
year programs and summer
programs. The rates reflect
scores for 2007-08 school
year and summer 2008 pro-
grams. School districts are
required to offer the sum-
mer programs butit is op-
tional to offer a school year
program. Walton County
School District has offered
the VPK summer program
for three summers to area
schools serving DeFuniak
Springs, Freeport,, and
south Walton. The rate for
the 2008 summer program
is the highest thus far. The
rate for this district is 269
out of a possible 300..
In comparison with other
school district summer pro-


grams, WCSD has a larger
readiness rate than other dis-
trict summer programs and
is in fact larger than many
other district school year
programs in the surround-
ing area. Walton County
School District has the high-
est rating in Walton County
among the school year pri-
vate providers and Holmes,
Washington, Okaloosa, and
Bay County School District
Summer programs. Other
information is also available
on the DOE Early Learning/
Prekindergarten website
http://www.fldoe.org
. "We are very proud of our
students and teachers and
know that this success will
continue in the future," said
VPK coordinating teacher
Cindy .Wade. "I really be-
lieve one of the reasons we
have good scores is because
we hire highly-qualified,
certified teachers who are
knowledgeable in early
childhood and early litera-
cy."

The calm in the eye of the storm


By ALICIA LEONARD
A courthouse can be im-
posing to most people. Red
tape, legal documents and
the unfamiliar way the legal
system works is enough to
cause more than one's fair
share of stress. But, in the
midst of it all is a familiar
and friendly face that most
in Walton County have come
to rely on and appreciate,
the, Walton County Clerk of
the Circuit Courts, Martha
Ingle.
If local government was a
computer, then Ingle's office


would be not only the hard
drive, but the central pro-
cessing unit, through which
every record for every legal
document flows. However,
they do a whole lot more
than just deal with docu-
ments. The clerk is a public
trustee and a constitutional
officer elected by the people.
Ingle's office provided ser-
vices that touches citizens'
lives every day and, as Ingle
says,. "W'We are directly ac-
countable to the people."

urt documents to Ingle's office has been pre-
sented with seven awards
for excellence in their fi-
nancial reporting from the
Government Finance Of-
ficers Association since she
first .took office. When the
county hired an internal au-
ditor almost two years ago,
Ingle requested her office
be the first to be looked at,
"I thought we needed to go
through the process first'.
Everything comes through
our office or touches our of-
fice and we needed to make
sure we were on the right
page and putting our best
foot forward on behalf of the
county and the taxpayer."
Government oversight is
one more task that falls to
the Clerk's office. They pre-
pare the tentative county
budget that is presented
to the BCC annually. They
are the auditors of county
funds, making sure funds
are spent on purchases for
/ the public. They are the ac-
countants for the courts and
'er boxes ofn doc- the custodians of county
of herofficesand funds, investing surplus
county funds and managing
county reserves.
S.-.. - The Clerk also provides

for the court system. They
ensure that court orders,
judgments or directives are
carried out within the pa-
rameters allowed by the
law. They collect and dis-
tribute court-assessed pay-
ments (court cost, fines and
child support) and statu-
tory service charges. They
prepare, file and maintain
valuable court records and
provide statistical data to
the Supreme Court.
Two other big areas 'are
record keeping and com-
munications. Ingle says her
office works at embracing
technology to make records
.... more accessible to the pub-
lic and to keep confidential
information safe. "We have
a wonderful Internet tech-
nology (IT) staff. They work
tirelessly to make sure we
have the communications
and are /able to keep legal-
ly confidential information
safe. We also handle all the
computers for our 9-1-1 sys-
tem and all the county sys-
tems. They do a great job
and I'm very proud of them.
They sometimes work week-
ends and get called out in
the middle of the night and
|' they work around the clock.
They do a beautiful job."

think of Ingle's office; and
it's a big part of it. A team of
employees keep up witlh re-
.cords management and with
destruction schedules ac-
cording to statutes. Just the
physical presence of records
at the court house is over-
whelming and Ingle gave
a tour of the downstairs to
show the new system being
implemented in the old part
of the court house. "Even
with all of this space, we
are looking at the possibil-
ity of being close to filled in
a little over two years. We
also have a hard-drive here
and another storage drive-in
Tallahassee, so we always
have extra backups for our
records."
Ingle spoke throughout
the interview about the
importance of her staff. As
she led the way through
all of her offices, she intro-
duced everyone by :their
first name. "I am so proud
of our staff. Our supervi-
sors d'o a wonderful job and
everyone is cross-trained,
so if someone is out sick, we
never miss a beat. They are
a great, group of people we
have here. Our employees
are really the ones who' do
the work and keep this of-
fice running smoothly. They
deserve lots of credit for all
the hard work they do."
It's something Ingle
knows first hand, "I start-
ed out taking the minutes
at the BCC meetings and
working in the finance office
around 1976. In 1981, I be-
came involved in working on
budgets and with the board.
From there, I was a chief
deputy clerk and I ran for
the office of Clerk in 2000. I
attribute all our success and
my election to our employ-
ees. I care about all of them.
They make us all look good
everyday by the way they do
their jobs."
Ingle said that she is very
thankful for the new court-
house. One of the tougher
aspects of Ingle and her
staffs job is working with
irate or unhappy citizens,

Chautauqua presentation


-examines The Beatles ideology


By JEFFREY POWELL
On Saturday night, Feb.
28. Beatles expert and
motivational speaker Bill
Stainton addressed a group
of enthusiastic guests for a
session of the Florida Chau-
tauqua Assembly. Stainton's
book. "The 5 Best Decisions
The Beatles Ever Made.....
and why you should make
them too!" was the subject of
the evening's presentation.
Stainton contends that
by examining these five
decisions, everyone i could
become more successful in
their personal and profes-
sional lives.
"The secrets of The Beat-
les' success can be applied to
your success," Stainton said.
"No one can argue with the
level of their success."
According to Stainton, a,
decision made by John Len-
non when he was 16 years
old changed the face of mod-
ern music. Lennon was a
member of the rock group
the Quarrymen when he met
Paul McCartney in 1957.
Despite the fact that Paul
was a better guitar player
and singer, and was bet-
ter looking, John accepted
Paul into the band. Stainton
called this "spreading the
spotlight." He contended
that by spreading the light
everyone looks brighter. He
used a quote from President
Harry Truman to make his
point: "It is amazing what
#you can accomplish if you do
not care who gets the cred-
it."
The second decision
Stainton spoke of was that
The Beatles had a shared vi-
sion. At the time The Beat-
les were formed, there were
over 300 other rock 'n' roll
bands in Liverpool, most
of which were better than
The Beatles. The new group
aimed high by wanting to


be bigger than Elvis Presley
and never looked back. It is
reported that Lennon would
ask the group where they
were going and they would
tell him "To the top. John-
ny."
Decision three was to
"play to your strengths."
Many bands of that era
were given songs meant to
be hits. Shortly after they
formed, The Beatles wanted
to write and make their own
music. They did not want
to become a cookie-cutter
band. "The Beatles discov-
ered what they did better
than everybody else," said


I


Stainton. "If you can dis-
cover that, your success is
virtually assured."
The fourth move was
to "shake things up." The
Beatles held their last con-
cert on August 29. 1966 at
Candlestick Park when on
the top of their game. By
challenging the rules and
deciding never to tour again
The Beatles were, in some
people's eyes, .risking their
careers. "It is hard to hit a
moving target," said Stain-
ton. "Everybody must adapt
and evolve."
,"Carry that weight" was
the final decision. "All the

TProject
By ALIC EONARD
In today's uncertain eco-
nomic times many parents
are strained just to put food
on the table for their kids.
Extras, such as the hun-
dreds of dollars that prepar-
ing for prom takes, is just out
of. the question. Five fairy
godmothers have ridden to
the rescue and are putting
their own Cinderella story
into action for young women
in this area.
Michelle A. Schack talked
about how the project came
together, "As five members
of the Leadership Walton
Class 2009 (a program by
the Walton Area Cham-
ber of Commerce), Michele
Ray, Angela Huggins, ,Gina
Jamison, Ashley Vannoy
and I brainstormed ways
to help our Walton County
teen girls and came up with
Project Princess. Project
Princess is an effort to help
promote self-confidence
and individual beauty to

Princess a success


all teenage girls in Walton
County. It is about making
sure that all teenage girls
in Walton County have the
opportunity to capture their
own personal memories of a
prom, regardless of personal
or financial circumstances."
The fab-five fairy god-
mothers sent out an email
a few weeks ago requesting
donations of new or nearly
new prom or formal dresses.
The response and quality of
gowns the group received
was outstanding. "In Pax-
ton, we outfitted 13 girls,
but we had available around
250 dresses for the girls to
search through to find their
perfect dress. We were very
pleased with the turnout in
Paxton, but'we hope to have
more girls turn .out in DFS
and in south Walton. Be-.
cause it is our first year, we
don't have a clue as to how
many girls we will serve,"
added Schack.
Future fittings are


scheduled at the DeFuniak
Springs Community Cen-
ter on March 14-15 from
10 a.m. till 2 p.m. and Sil-
ver Sands Factory Stores,
March 21-22 from 10 a.m.
till 2 p.m. Schack said,
"Vanessa Mitchell is on the
Leadership Walton Alumni
which was created out of
last year's Leadership Wal-
ton class. She, along with
other volunteers, will be as-
sisting during fitting days."
The project is open to all
high school girls attending
prom at a Paxton, Freeport
and South Walton High.
There are no restrictions
or costs. Door prizes and
refreshments are onsite, as
well as a seamstress.
Who said storybook tales
don't come true? Thanks to
Project Princess, they can.

Auntie Em


MEMBERS OF THE Sunset King Dulcimer Players work on technique.


ART AND BEATRICE PRIOR make sweet music 'with the dulcimer. Watch out guitars,
there's a new instrument around the campfire.

" ot "just "(Kumba a" at the campground:

Sunset Xing Du cimer Players


Dear Auntie Em,-
I am dealing with a prob-
lem of a rather personal
nature: I am in love with
a man I fear does not find
me attractive. We are both
older, divorced and our kids
are already grown and have
families of their own. We
have been dating for a little
over a year now.
My problem is that while
he is affectionate toward me,
that is as far as it ever goes.
We have no real physical in-
timacy in our relationship. I
have tried to talk with him
but he gets upset or changes
the subject. It's -not like I'm
some sex-crazed senior citi-
zen, but I believe that physi-
cal intimacy is a big part of
a relationship.
I have started to internal-
ize this rejection and have
started to blame myself for
not being attractive enough.
I know this is not healthy
and I don't know how to stop
blaming'myself for his lack
of interest. Can you give me
any advice at all?'
Sexy-less in the. South
(Name and address with-
held on request)
Dear Sexy-less,
I am so sorry that you are


dealing with this sensitive
issue. I could pull a lot of
advice out of my hat about
couples therapy, speaking
with his doctor and such,
but from your letter, it does
not sound like he would be
willing to go this route.
I will speculate that your
friend may have some phys-
ical problems that he does
not want you to know about.
If it's not a physical prob-
lem, then he may have some
hang ups about intimacy in
general. If you have tried to
talk to him and it doesn't
work, you have some real
decisions to make and they
won't be easy.
First, what are y6u will-
ing to live without? If you
would rather have com-
panionship even though he
won't be honest with you,
then you can stick around.
If you decide that you are
still a viable and attractive
female that deserves to be
treated as such, then you
may have to go the just-
friends route with your fel-
laow and get busy with look-
ing for another companion
who can be more. It's really
up to you to decide how im-
portant this issue is to your
relationship.
I know that does not
sound fair. In a perfect


world, we could have it all in
one person, but that is not
always the simple truth.
I am concerned that this
issue is eroding all of your
confidence as a female. I
know it is tough for a man
to talk about certain things,
but if it means you might
back off of your relationship
with him, he might be will-
ing to open up. Just remem-
ber, this is not a bluff. If he
does not follow through with
a discussion and you threat-
en to walk, you had better
stick to your guns. Bluffing
is only going to cause you
more problems and further
erode your self-esteem. You
have a right to feel loved
and attractive in your rela-
tionship. You have to decide
what is most important to
you and your life.
I would also suggest pick-
ing up some reading materi-
als on intimacy and aging.
This might open your eyes
to how others deal with
these types of issues as they
mature. I wish you the best.
Good luck and God bless,
Auntie Em,

By ASHLEYAMASON
Art Prior and his wife,
Beatrice, are full-time
campers living at Sunset
King' Lake Campground.
However, they don't spend
their leisure time like most.
Hiking, fishing, and singing
"Kumbaya" step aside. Art
and Beatrice have formed
a musical group, the Sun-
-KMt'ng Duilcimier Player's
Club.
When Art, who has
played the dulcimer for over
10 years, could not find any-
one to jam with, he. decided
there had to' be a solution.
So he and Beatrice' reserved
the campground .C.A.L.M
(crafts, aerobics, .line-danc-
ing,. music) building to offer
beginner dulcimer lessons.
Within a month, over 20
full-time campers and part-
time snowbirds crammed
into the small building to
learn to play the odd look-
ing instrument Art loved so
much.
Most have never heard of
the instrument, much less
seen it, but that didn't slow
their desire to learn. A dul-
cimer is an American folk
instrument with three or
four strings stretched over
an elongated fretted sound
box that is held on the lap
and plucked or strummed.
Art's meet-cute with the
dulcimer was at a-festival in
Clearwater, Florida.
"There was a lady' there
playing an instrument that
I loved the sound of that I'd
-never seen before. When she
was taking a break I asked
her about it, and it was a
dulcimer. She was fixing
to give some lessons, and I
said 'OK, I'd like to take ad-
vantage of that.'"
Due to the outstanding
response to Art's. dulcimer
lessons, the Sunset King
Dulcimer Player's Club be-
gan practicing every Tues-
day night, as well as having
Sunday jam sessions. Of
course, no true campground
.activity is complete without
a great meal. Club members
bring a potluck dish on Sun-
days, and everyone catches
up on the week's activities
before getting down to busi-
ness with bluegrass.
The barely three-month-
old musical group already
has a wedding booked this
upcoming weekend, at
which Art will grace the

The Next Room


Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away int6 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 solemnity 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
continuity, 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.

Graceville surprises Paxton 56-46


By PATRICK CASEY
Turnovers put the Paxton
Bobcats in an early 20-5 hole


in their second round state
basketball playoff game
in Graceville as the Tigers


knocked off the Bobcats 56-
46 to end Paxton's season
last week.


PAXTON SENIOR ZACK VICKERS led the Bobcats with 14 points in their 56-46 loss to
Graceville last week.


PAXTON'S SHAQ JA-CKSON puts the kabosh on a shot by Graceville's Chris Dozier(3)
during the first half of their second round playoff game last week.


Paxton fell behind 13-2
in the first four minutes of
the game as a very quick
Graceville squad got into the
Bobcats passing lanes and
forced several steals that led
to easy baskets for the host
school. Paxton trailed 20-7
as the first quarter came to
an end as the Bobcats strug-
gled to shoot the ball well
from outside early and gave
away several possessions in
what was likely their worst
eight minutes of basketball
during the season.
Paxton began to settle
down during the second pe-
riod of play as they cut the
deficit to 22-15 as sopho-
more Shaq Jackson scored
a pair of baskets, his first
points since mid-January,
as he returned to the court
after a five-week layoff due
to a broken wrist. Paxton
could not get any closer be-
fore halftime as Graceville
held a 27-18 margin at the
break. The Bobcats strug-
gled to get the ball where
they wanted in the first half
.as Graceville's defense was
very aggressive in pursuing
the basketball.
Paxton closed the gap to
29-27 as Demetrius Moore
and Zack Vickers began, to
work inside in the third pe-
riod of play. Graceville held
the Bobcats off for the rest
of the quarter as they took
a 35-32 lead to the fourth
quarter. Paxton had sev-
eral opportunities to close
the gap or take the lead but
turnovers and bad luck on
some rebounding opportu-
nities staved off their at-
tempts.
Paxton did grab a momen-
tary lead early in the fourth
quarter but Graceville
.quickly .erased the deficit
and built a nine-point ad-
vantage going into the final


three minutes of play.
The Bobcats fought val-
iantly to cut the deficit, but
Graceville would have no
part of it as they hit 14-of-
16 free throws on the night
and made all 13 attempts
in the fourth quarter to get
revenge on a Bobcat squad
that ended the Tigers sea-
son in 2007.

The Dozier brothers were
the story for Graceville.
Cameron, a freshman,
scored 24 points while his
older brother, Chris, added
16 on the night. The win
improved the Tigers record
to 16-11 and left a very bit-
ter taste for Bobcats fans
to swallow as their season
came to an end with a 24-5
record.
Game notes: Paxton
made its 14th appearance in
the state playoffs and holds
a 14-12 record in 26 games.
The Bobcats failed to make
the Region Final after fall-
ing to FAMU High last sea-
son at the buzzer in Paxton.


It might be of some solace to
Paxton fans that the Tigers
got crushed at Gainesville
Rock High School on Satur-
day night 54-21. Colby Fore-
hand was unable to return
to the Paxton line-up with
his injured wrist. The game
marked the final contest for
seniors Vickers, Forehand
and Michael Smith. The
Bobcats were credited with
20 turnovers and their out-
side shooting was problem-
atic in their two playoff loss-
es, which combined with the
injury situation to pull the
plug on a rough finish to the
season. How important is it
to play at home in the play-
offs? The home team was
7-0 in Glass A boys playoff
games in Region I, 6-1 in
Class 2A playoff games in
Region I and 5-2 in Class
3A where Jacksonville Rib-
ault won its first two games
on the road, then couldn't
hit anything in Marianna
in helping the Bulldogs to
the Final 4 for the second
straight year.


DID YOU KNOW?

Five Sports Facts

players in SEC history to rush for 1,000 yards in each of
their freshman, sophomore and junior seasons.

3. The NFL -did not require all teams to display player
names on the backs of their jerseys until 1970.

4. The Chicago White Sox led Major League Baseball with
235 home runs in 2008.

5. The Toronto Blue Jays led Major League Baseball with
'n'ERAof3.49 in 2008. ..


PAXTON'S DAN GEOGHAGAN(3) ,hit a pair of three-
pointers for the Bobcats but poor ball-handling ended Pax-
ton's run in the second round of the state playoffs.


PAXTON COULD NOT STOP Graceville freshman Cam-
eron Dozier(1) as he scored 24 points against the Bobcats.

Franklin County sent Cot-
tondale packing with a 49-
39 win over the Hornets on
Saturday as Deshaun Win-
field scored 12 points for the
Seahawks. Franklin County
will head to La'keland to
face Jacksonville Arlington
Country Day in, a Class 2A
semi-final on Thursday at
10:30 a.m. The Seahawks
will be a huge underdog to
a team that just seems to
reload every year. Kruize
Perkins scored 16 points as
Marianna used their home
court advantage to surprise
Jacksonville Ribault with a
52-39 win on Saturday. The
Bulldogs led only 23-18, but
controlled the tempo most
of the night as they got re-
venge on Ribault for a 2007
Region final loss.
Mariannawill play Orlan-
do Jones (28-3) on Wednes-
day night at 7:30 p.m. in
Lakeland and the Bulldogs
will also be a big underdog.
Graceville laid a total egg on
the road against a far supe-
rior opponent as Gainesville
Rock dropped a mountain on
the Tigers 54-21. The Tigers
trailed 23-9 at halftime and


High School, girls track &
field coach Bill Stamper;
and former Lincoln High
School football coach David
Wilson.

Hall, who passed away
in September 1997 after a
two-year bout with cancer,
played football, basketball
and baseball for Tivoli High
School in DeFuniak Springs
and was a member of the
Florida Interscholastic Ath-
letic Association from 1948-
1952. He set a single-game
scoring record in football
with 13 touchdowns and 468
yards, and scored 22 touch-
downs and four extra points
in two consecutive games.
He received the NWFOA


Award for the Most Out-
standing Athlete twice. He
was a two-team MVP in all
three sports for Tivoli, scor-
ing double figures in points
and steals in basketball and
consistently hitting for the
cycle in baseball. He was a
three-sport athlete at Wiley
College in Marshall, Texas,
before returning to Walton
County to teach and coach
for the next 36 years.
"Boogie" Hall was a main-
stay in the community as he
coached Pee Wee football
teams, umpired for years at
the DeFuniak Springs Little
League baseball games and
spent almost two decades as
a high school basketball of-
ficial.


The recreation fields be-
yond the DeFuniak Springs
airport permanently carry
the names of Willie "Boo-
gie" Hall, Fred Hackett and
Royce Phillips.

Hall earned his nickname
"Boogie" during baseball
season in his prime as he
told teammates he was go-
ing to "boogie woogie" the
baseball around the field
when he got up to the plate.

that featured a 6-10 center
and a 6-8 forward.
In Class 4A, Pensacola

Jackson 75-69 to earn a date
with undefeated Spring

Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in

Home field advantage in
the boys basketball playoffs
in Region I in all six classi-

that got to play all three
playoff games at home won
all three of them and are off
to Lakeland this week. Pen-
sacola High, in Class 4A, is
the only team in Region I
that had to go- on the road
and win a playoff game.
They did so by a single point
over Tallahassee Rickards
in the second round 41-40.
Gainesville Rock, Franklin
County, Marianna, Gaines-
ville High and Winter Park
all won three games at
home to advance to the Fi-
nal Four in Lakeland. Pen-
sacola High won two of their
three playoff games at home.


That's a 17-1- niark for the
home team in the region in
boys basketball. If you think
home-court' advantage is
overrated, think again.

our region to make it to the

High school baseball, softball underway


By PATRICK CASEY
The weather outside may
still be a bit frightful on cer-
tain days of the week, but
area softball and baseball


PAXTON'S KAPPI
STEWART deserved a better
fate on the mound, but Free-
port scored five runs in the
seventh to tie the game be-
fore snatching victory from
the jaws of defeat.


teams at the high school lev-
el are getting underway for
the 2009 season despite less
than exemplary weather.
All five area high schools


have played at least one con-
test so far with the Paxton
boys baseball team the only
squad yet to play a regular
season game as the Bobcats


FREEPORT'S JORDAN HOWELL drove in the winning
run to help herself earn the win as Freeport rallied for a 14-
13 victory over Paxton in eight innings on Friday night.


THE WALTON LADY BRAVES softball team enjoyed their new dugout after their field
underwent renovation during the past off-sesaon.'


WALTON'S LAYLA ROBERTS(10) has been swinging a hot bat as the Braves are off to
a 3-1 start. on the season. ,


open on March 9 in Florala
at 6:30 p.m. to begin a trek
toward what their fans hope
is another region final ap-
pearance.
While the Paxton boys
are making the transition
from basketball to baseball,
their softball counterparts
have opened the season with
an 11-5 loss to Walton and a
14-13 defeat at the hands of
Freeport in eight innings on
Friday night. The Lady Bob-
cats did post their first win
of the year on Monday night
as they edged Ponce de Leon
5-3 on the road to improve
to 1-2.
The Bobcats will go as
far as pitcher Kappi Stew-
art can take them since she
is expected -to pitch most
,of their games this season.
Paxton has a little more
experience this season as
most of their players return
from last year. The Bobcats
should make some noise in
their district and Paxton
will host the district tour-
nament in late April which
should give them a chance
to earn a playoff berth.
Walton's softball team is
swinging the bats well early
in the season as the Braves
are off to a 3-1 start. Walton
mowed Panama City Boze-
man 17-0 and beat Laurel
Hill 12-2 on Friday to go
with an 11-5 win over Pax-
ton for their three wins.
The Braves might have
been 4-0 had Panama City
Rutherford not rallied for
three runs in the bottom of
the eighth inning last week
to snatch an 8-7 win away
from the Braves.
Devin Richardson will
pitch a majority, of Wal-
ton's games this season and
the Braves have enough
speed, hitting ability and
fielding precision to have
a winning season. The dis-
trict is tough, as always,
with Northview, Pensacola
Catholic and South Walton
providing ample competi-
tion. Walton, like Paxton,
will get to host the district
tournament in .late April,
which could help the Braves
to a playoff berth. Layla
Roberts provides a solid bat
in the line-up and several
of the Walton players took
part in playing travel ball
last summer, which should
help the squad. The Walton
baseball team is 1-1 after
losing to Milton 13-0 before
defeating Freeport on Mon-
day afternoon 6-4 behind a
solid pitching performance
from James Towery. The
Braves are extremely young
and will take some lumps
from veteran teams, but
expect this squad to make
some noise as they have a
veteran coach in Ron Dixon
and a chance to fight North-
view and South Walton f6r
a playoff berth. The Walton
boys will host the. district
tourney in late April.
The Freeport softball
team is 2-4 so far this sea-
son as they have grabbed
wins over Panama City Ar-


nold 8-7 and Paxton 14-13.
11-0 losses to Panama City
Arnold and Baker on the
road were not a lot of fun
for the Bulldogs and Holmes
County picked up a 9-3 win
over Freeport during the
first week of the season. The
Bulldogs nearly knocked off
South Walton, only to see the
Seahawks score three runs
in the seventh inning to pull
out a 6-5 win at Freeport on
February 20. The Bulldogs
play in a very competitive
district and have Jordan
Howell and Curstin Buford
to throw most of their in-
nings during the season.
The Bulldogs are capa-
ble of putting runs on the
board, but do struggle in
the field at times. They are
a team that is hard to pre-
dict and will likely make
some noise late in the year
when the squad travels to
Jay for the district tourna-
ment. The Freeport baseball
team is 1-1 after a 12-2 win
over Laurel Hill coupled
with a, 6-4 loss to Walton in
their first two games. Coach
Gene Martin has a squad
that made the playoffs last
year and is hungry for more.
Freeport's district is very
balanced and should provide
some outstanding district
games as the season march-
es on. Freeport will host the
district tournament, as they
did last year, in late April
in what should be a stellar
week of baseball in a very
competitive district.
The South Walton softball
,tealn is 4-1-1 this season as
pitcher Shelby Watson con-
tinues to give the Seahawks
a chance to win most ev-
ery game. South Walton
opened with a 12-2 win over
Panama City Bay and has ,,
dropped Chipley 9-1 so far
this season. The Seahawks
dominated a good Baker
team in a 4-1 win on Febru-
ary 23. The Seahawks lone
loss came 3-1 at Choctaw
with the Seahawks earn-
ing a 0-0 tie with Holmes
County on Monday night af-
ter the two teams combined
for only four hits in eight in-
nings of play. FCAT testing
prompted the two coaches
to call the game a draw so
their athletes would not be
out any later. .
The Seahawks will have
to work on their hitting
and fielding as the season
progresses, but their pitch-
ing is top notch. The South
Walton baseball team is off
to a slow start with a 1-4 re-
cord as the squad has been
shutout three times in five
games. Holmes County de-
feated South Walton 8-0 in
the season opener and Pan-
ama City Bozeman(10-0)
and Northview (2-0) have
followed suit. The Seahawks
lone win came in a 6-3 deci-
sion at Rocky Bayou with
Panama City Arnold rally-
ing for a 9-7 win on Monday
night. The Seahawks play
a challenging schedule and
cold bats to start the year
will hopefully thaw with the


coming spring.
The Ponce de Leon soft-
ball team is 2-1 after a 9-5
win over Laurel Hill and a
14-4 stomping of Panama
City Bozeman. The Pirates
lost to Paxton 5-3 on Mon-
day night, but PDL should
be able to make some noise
behind the pitching of Hil-
.lary Harper to go with a
more experienced squad in
the field. The Pirates play
in a difficult district with
Baker and Jay likely the fa-
vorites, but PDL and Free-
port will make some noise
as the season progresses.
The Pirates baseball team
is 1-1 after roasting Cot-
tondale 11-1 before falling
to Samson 11-6. The Pirates
face the same district slate
as Freeport, meaning every
win will be hard to come by.
PDL' returns a solid squad
undet Josh McGowan with
a challenging schedule,
though the Pirates do not
face Walton or South Walton
this season. The Pirates will
host Paxton in an intriguing
game in PDL on April 6 and
will play Freeport twice, per
district rules.
South Walton saw their
baseball team improve to
12-11 this season, but still
post an 0-7 mark against
District 1, Class 3Afoes. The
Seahawks still need to find
pitching that can shut down
an opponent, but had one of
the better hitting and run
scoring units in 2008. Their
baseball squad next season
should be solid, but Walton,
Northview and Pensacola
Catholic will make it hard
to climb far in that district.
The Seahawks softball team
finished 23-2 and lost both
games against the Chipley
Tigers, including a 3-0 loss
in Friday's second round
Class 3A state playoff game.
The Seahawks will be the
district favorite again next
season and will likely beef
up the~ ,schedule .for some
stronger competition. Phil
Tisa did a great job to coach
a young squad that will be
hungry for more playoff suc-
cess next season.
Freeport saw the soft-
ball squad finish 9-16 under
Coach Charles Trotman.
The Bulldogs fell victim to
one bad inning in several of
their games and lost six con-
tests by .three runs or less.
Fielding continued to haunt
the Bulldogs at times, but
the squad should have a
chance to climb the District
1, Class 2A standings next
season if the roster stays in-
tact. The Freeport baseball
team had one of its best sea-
sons in years as the squad
enters the playoffs with a 17-
10 record. Gene Martin has
done a solid'job using a half
dozen pitchers to keep his
starters well-rested and the
Bulldogs lineup can mash
the ball all over the field.
This group should be strong
again next season and could
win the school's first playoff
game in Freeport baseball
history this week.

Shooting


suspect to


face murder


indictment


By DOTTY NIST
A 60-year-old local resi-
dent is facing first degree
murder charges in connec-
tion with a shooting inci-
dent in Miramar Beach that
resulted in the death of twp
young people and the hos-
pitalization of three others
with serious injuries.
Dan nie Roy Baker was
taken in custody on the
morning of Feb. 26 follow-
ing the incident, which had
begun shortly before 2 a.m,
with shots being fired into
a residence in the Summer
Lakes townhome complex
on Scenic Gulf Drive. Baker
resided in a nearby town-
home within the complex.
The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office issued press re-
leases with information on
the incident later in the
morning, just hours after
the suspect's arrest, and
Walton County Sheriff Mike
Adkinson held a press con-
ference regarding the inci-
dent shortly afterward at 2
p.m.
"This is a tragedy of truly
serious proportions," Ad-
kinson told members of the
news media.
"We've been at this all
night." Adkinson said. "We
are committed to seeing
this through to justice," he
pledged.
He remarked that a num-
ber of young people who were
impacted by the violence are
now severely traumatized
in its wake. "They are our
number-one concern," he
declared.
Adkinson said deputies
responding to the residence.
following reports of shots
being fired, encountered a
situation of confusion there.


DANNIE ROY BAKER
was taken into custody on
Feb. 26 in connection uinth a
shooting incident that began
in the early morning hours
that day in Miramar Beach.


with 14 people in the town-
home, including two de-
ceased persons and three
wounded from rifle fire.
He explained that the
deputies isolated the sus-
pect immediately after the
shooting, and that with sup-
port from other agencies,
the area was contained. At-
tempts were then initiated
to communicate with Baker
inside his residence.
Agencies participating
included special response
teams from Qkaloosa and
Santa Rosa counties, branch-
es of the .Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement,
South Walton Fire District
emergency personnel, and
Medical Examiner's Office
representatives, Adkinson
said.
Adkinson explained
'that, due to the suspect be-
ing isolated, the personnel
were able to proceed in an
unrushed manner to appre-
hend him. The suspect sur-
rendered to special response
personnel at approximately
6-10 a.m., Adkinson report-
ed, and was taken into cus-
tody without incident.
He called the response
"a textbook example of how
agencies can work togeth-
er."
Joining Adkinson at the
Feb. 26 press conference
was Bill Eddins, state at-
torney for the First Judicial
Circuit. Eddins comment-
ed that his office would be
gathering information to be
presented to a grand jury
in connection with the inci-
dent, and that a first degree
murder indictment, would be
sought.
Initially, no informa-
tion on the identities of the
shooting victims was pro-
'vided, pending notification
of family members. On Feb.
27, the sheriffs office did
reveal the names and ages
of the victims in a press re-
lease..
The deceased were iden-
tified as Nicolas Pablo Corp-
Torres, a 23-year-old male,
and Racine Balbontin-Ara-
gondona, a 22-year-old fe-
male.
The three wounded vic-
tims were identified- as:
Fransisco Javier Cofre-Fer-
nande, 25; Sebastian Mau-
ricio Arizaga-Suarez, 27;
and David Alonzo Bilbao-

TV time,

Inlet Beach author Lloyd
Pye is on a mission to prove
his theories are out of this
world literally. Pye is the
research coordinator of The
Starchild Project, which is
investigating possible ori-
gins of a strangely-shaped
skull referred to as the
Starchild Skull.
According to Pye the
skull was discovered in the
1930s by an American teen-
ager near Mexico's Copper
Canyon. The girl had gone
exploring in a nearby cave
when she came across a hu-
man skeleton lying on its
back. Next to this skeleton


was a grave with an arm
bone sticking out of it. The
hand bones were wrapped
around the exposed skel-
eton's upper arm. The girl
then attempted to recover
the buried skeleton but had
to abandon her effort due to
flash flooding. Ultimately,
all the girl was able to re-
trieve were the two skulls,
which she kept hidden away
as souvenirs for the rest of
her life. The women died in
the early 1990s, after which
time the skulls. were given
to Ray and Melanie Young
of El Paso, Texas. As a neo-

Compromise

lights the

way for turtle

conservation

zone
By DOTTY NIST
Walton County is now
one of more than 75 Florida
counties and municipalities
that have adopted coastal
lighting standards aimed
at minimizing negative im-
pacts on nesting sea turtles
and on other wildlife native
to the coastal area.
The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) approved the Wild-
life Conservation Zone Or-
dinance with lighting stan-
dards by unanimous vote on
Feb. 24.
Disorientation from ar-
tificial light on the beach
is, considered a significant
threat to sea turtles, and
all five species of sea turtles
that nest along the Florida
coast are listed as either en-
dangered or threatened.
The Walton County
Comprehensive Plan, ad-
opted in 1996, mandated a
sea turtle nesting protec-
tion ordinance, 'and light-
ing standards on the beach
have been, under discussion
in Walton County since the
mid-4990s or earlier. A new
push by the county to put a
coastal lighting ordinance
in place began several years
ago. At that time state and
federal regulatory agencies
urged fo'd the adoption of an
ordinance of this type as a
mitigation measure for the
temporary seawalls autho-
rized by Walton County in
2005.
The first draft of the cur-
rent ordinance had been met
with strong opposition by
beachfrointhomeownerswor-
ried about potential impacts
on their property rights and
safety. After many revisions
to the ordinance, just when
those concerns seemed to be
alleviated, strong opposition
surfaced at the end of 2008
from representatives of ho-
tels, resorts, and large con-
dominiums.
The ordinance presented
to the BCC on Feb. 24 was
the 13th draft of the docu-
ment, the result of meetings
and discussions between
county staff, members of the
South Walton Turtle Watch
and environmentalists, and
representatives of the ho-
tel, resort and condominium
community. Facilitating
some of the discussions was
Dawn Moliterno, Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce director.

New commissioner answers questions at SWCC forum


By LEAH STR4TAL4NN
Nobody threw any curve
balls last week as newly
elected county commission-
er Cecilia Jones appeared
before members of the South
Walton Community Council
(SWCC) to answer questions
about the county's future.
"The country is in a state
of confusion," Jones said,
"'and people are fearful. I'm


going to dwell on the positive
things I can do. We can go
the extra mile to help people
in need. We have to think
how we can help others get
through this. I'm ready for
the challenge. People are
looking for leaders who can
lead. I understand the signs
of the times and the chal-
lenges.
"It's hard to find people


in the middle and I feel like
it is my job to try and bring
people to the middle," Jones
stated. "One of my first goals
is to save money. The office
rent for my office was really
high so I wanted to move
from the Spires at Ed Wal-
line Park to a county-owned
building, but that didn't
work out." Ultimately Jones
was offered the use of the


Regional Utilities building
in Grayton Beach for her of-
fice for zero rent and she re-
cently moved into the space.
"It has a huge meeting place
and needs no renovation,",
Jones said.
"We are looking diligent-
ly at ways to save money,"
Jones said. This statement
was made shortly after
Wanda Smith, who ac-


companies Commissioner
Jones, said the county was
expecting a loss of about 14
percent in property taxes,
which amounts to some $7
million in lost revenue over
last year.

CDLAB wades through


Camp Creek Lake issues


By LEAH STRATMANN
Discussion became a, bit
heated at the last meeting
of the Coastal Dune Lakes
Advisory Board when a con-
tingent of people who live
alongside Camp Creek Lake
came to the meeting seeking
relief from flooding in the
area.,
Board vice-chairman
Mary Rosenheim explained
to the group that opening of
the outfall of the lake is not
a quick-fix option. "I know
citizens are concerned about'
this area but it is compli-
cated because the lake lies
in a conservation area pro-
tecting snowy plovers, Choc-
tawhatchee beach mice and
a variety of sea turtles. We
need to know what water
levels we are talking about
and whether septic tanks
are involved or not. The
more information we have,
the better the conversation
will go with U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service [FWS]. The
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection won't
touch it without first hear-
ing from FWS. I'm trying
to stay away from the long
process and find a :quicker
solution."
The St. Joe Company
holds the permit for the lake
and modifying it to allow for
assistance in popping off the
lake is an arduous journey.
"A procedure has been set
up to open the lake, but it
has to be done through Fish
and Wildlife and involves
a long process of modifying
the permit. This is a very
unique situation because of
the conservation element,"
Rosenheim explained.
Many of the docks around
Camp Creek Lake have

been underwater for months
and are beginning to disin-
tegrate and create a water
hazard.
Camp Creek Lake resi-
dent Gay .Yaksith came
to the meeting represent-
ing people at Camp Creek.'
"Some of our major concerns
is the historic flow has' now
been closed off and it has
been that way for several
months. We first saw the
changes start in 2000 when
the docks were underwater
for a few days; now they
have been underwater for
months and many have
been destroyed. We are con-
cerned about septic systems
around the lake as well. It
would appear that CR-30A
is being eroded where it
crosses Camp Creek Lake
and we are seeing stress
fractures there. The salin-
ity level of the lake is low
and we are seeing a lot of
algae and brackish water.
The situation is severe.
What they want to do is go
to the county and ask for
the opening to be put back
where'it was," Yaksith said.
"Residents have been very
patient, but now it has been
over year."
Rosenheim. explained the,
county's hands were tied in
the matter ,i the same way
the board's, hands are tied.
DEP will not issue an emer-
gency permit. She also said
-the naturalist employed at
the St. Joe Company devel-
opment Watercolor is acting
as the point person on find-
ing a solution to the prob-
lem.
Board member Richard
Bryan told the group, "We
went through a drought and
now we've had a lot of rain


and that affects the lakes
dramatically. There is rea-.
son for concern but not for
alarm."
Lake resident Tony Rig-
gio said, "We have, frag-
mented groups all around
the lake that need to join
forces into one big coalition
to bring pressure to bear to
get something done. We are
all concerned about ecology
and the health of the lake.
We know nature will even-
tually take care of this, but
what is needed now is a sim-
ple little assist," he said.
Another resident, De-
nise Creehan Inman, said,
"I have learned a lot about
all the different layers you
have to go through to get*
something done. We need
to act as quickly as possible.
We need to do as much as
we can as quickly as we can.
We want to be able to pro-
tect it and enjoy living on
the lake."
In other news, the board
is moving forward on draft-
ing of a dock, size ordinance
for the lakes. The board is
at the very beginning of this
process after being given ap-
proval to move forward.
Board member Earl Day
reported Eastern Lake is do-
ing well but has.been closed
for 16 days. "Nature is do-
ing its best," Day said, "it is
probably 95 percent back to
the way it was and the grass
is gone. It opened naturally
on Jan. 31 this year."
The Choctawhatchee Ba-
sin Alliance (CBA) present-
ed a list of people who are
willing to act as ex-officio

tions were accepted unani-

thing some of them do is re-
moving shirts somewhere
other than the beach, there-
by treating us all to public

think for men the all-impor-

gaping open at the button-

or suffer shallow breathing
because the' pants are cut-

All of: this speaks less to

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


A few issues back our
local celebrity columnist,
Miss DeFuniak Springs,
aka Ashley Amason wrote a
column about young women
dressing inappropriately for
the season and for the oc-,
casion. Miss Ashley herself
possesses height and grace
and would look just swell in
a gunnysack, but she also
possesses an arresting style
that is timeless.
While Ashley was right
about young women some-
times choosing to look like
common streetwalkers, at
least most of those young
ladies have the bodies to
wear the trashy .revealing
clothes they put on display.
When they are old enough
to realize a tailored outfit or
a nice sundress can be far
more sensuous than mini-
skirts and fishnet stockings,
they may no longer possess
the body for either style of
dress.
All of which brings us to a
far greater fashion faux pas
and' that is the 'plus-sized
among us- who dress as if
they could 'buy clothes in
single digit sizes. As a large
person myself, I am often
appalled at what I see peo-
ple my size wearing. Just
because they make crop
tops and short shorts in my
size does not mean anyone
should actually wear them
outside the home. Decades
back, clothing manufactur-
ers didn't make everything
in every size and while, this
limited the options for. the


larger body; it ensured a
more visually appealing
world.
Stretch pants are just one
case in point. I own two pair,
but I have never left the'
house in them if I was going
to have to get out of the car.
Stretch pants are wonderful
items to wear while clean-
ing the house or just chilling
out in front of the tube. The
pants accommodate bending
and stretching and home ex-
ercise, but they are singu-
larly unattractive on bodies
much larger than a size 10.
They are designed to fit like
skin and I don't know about
you, but I don't want to be
able to count the dimples
on an ample posterior while
I'm buying my groceries. In-
variably the person in the
stretch pants isn't wearing a
top that covers the hips and
buns, so all anyone sees are
rolls of flesh. I looked at my-
self in a full-length mirror
wearing stretch pants and
it. wasn't 'pretty. Do these
women not own mirrors?
Another-appeal of stretch'
pants is the relative cheap-
ness of them, but I'd rather
have only one or two pairs of
pants than wear these out-
side the house. No matter
how long it has been since
I've done the laundry, those
pants are not going outside
unless the only business
I have to do Can be accom-
plished via drive-through
windows.
Men are not as big of-
fenders of fashion myopia

The South Walton Fire

to an early morning single-
vehicle accident, at' 6067
U.S. 98, Santa Rosa Beach,
that left two motorists dead,
one on the .scene and one at
Sacred Heart Hospital in
Pensacola. The accident oc-
curred at around 12:39 a.m.
on March 2.
Reports from SWFD and
the Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) stated that the ve-
hicle, a pickup truck with
two passengers, apparently
failed to stop at- the stop
sign at the intersection of
East Hewitt Road and U.S.

across all four lanes of U.S.
98, entered the south shoul-
der, struck an embankment,
and overturned on its roof
in a ditch on the south side
of U.S. 98. The SWFD ex-
tricated the occupants from
the vehicle using hydraulic
rescue equipment.
The driver, Katherine
Leigh Carter, 43, of Santa
Rosa Beach, was pronounced
dead on the scene. The pas-
senger, Cecil Armond Cart-
er, 49, also of Santa Rosa

dition. He died at approxi-
mately 5:32 a.m.

As we wrap up another season with our last newsletter,
WCS would like to wish all the winter visitors a safe drive
home and thank all our friends for their support.
Congratulations to all the hard-working volunteers who,
in February alone, gave us the Presidents' Cup, the Dinner/
Dance, The Ladies' Luncheon, the Snowbird Singers' con-
cert and the Volunteers' Luncheon (hope I never blow up
another balloon).
Storage lockers -will be open every Wednesday till the
end of March from 3 p.m. till 4 p.m. The lockers are located
one mile east of CR-30A, on the south side of U.S. 98 on
Sugar Drive. Thanks to Don Gehrke and his staff for their
wonderful service.
The last general meeting will take place at 10 a.m. on
March 4 at Santa Rosa Community Church, located about
three miles east of CR-30A on the north side of U.S. 98.
Be sure to attend and welcome the new board members
and enjoy the sounds of Carol Addington and the Snowbird
Singers. Car pooling is suggested, as space is limited.
The fishing group could still use a couple of more individ-
uals for a charter in the next week. Call 269-2773 to catch
that big one.
Golf Garden leagues ended last week with another suc-
cessful year. Thanks to Bernard Rappa, Barbara Mitchell
and Dick Powell for all their hard work. Check the web-
site www.waltoncountysnowbirds.com to see a list of the
remaining play days, as they are available throughout
March. Special thanks to the Dickinsons, the Dods, Butch
Niver, Ed Arnold and Bob Swenson for the endless hours
they spend organizing these events.
After a week off, euchre began again on Friday night and
will end on Friday, March 6. Thanks to the over 100 euchre
players who helped make Friday nights at the Good News
United Baptist Church so much fun.
Special thanks must go to Betty and Bob Swenson (board
member, golf play days and dinner dance), Diane and
Vivek Likhite, (board member, line dance, tennis, student
scholarship), Mary and Mike Serniuk, (board member, gift
committee, Presidents' Cup and Ladies' Luncheon), Betty
Cardwell, Donna Bruder, Marilyn and Hugh Barnard,
(computer club, Website and financial consultant) and Eu-
nice Collins, (board member, casino trips and Ladies' Lun-
cheon). Their special leadership helps tie many WCS activi-
ties together. We obviously can't name all of our over 100
volunteers but thanks to all of you who keep WCS ticking
year after year.
In closing, all should feel proud of the donations made
in the name of the Walton Snowbirds, including the blood
drive, the shelter for battered women, a new south Walton
scholarship for needy students, Good News United Method-
ist Church, Faith Assembly Church and Santa Rosa Com-
munity Church. WCS does indeed make a difference.

Billy McKee, county envi-
ronmental manager, noted
that among recent changes
to the document were the
addition of a mechanism for
approval of lighting vari-
ances for existing develop-
ments. New developments
will be eligible to apply for
variances only for swim-
ming pools and surround-
ings, McKee explained.
John Cottle, a represen-
tative of the Community As-
sociation Presidents of the
Emerald Coast (CAPEC), an
organization representing
approximately 6,000 prop-
erty owners in Walton and
Okaloosa counties, was ap-
preciative of recent changes
to the ordinance but said he
had wished for still more
changes. He was ,of the
opinion that the 20-month
compliance period was ex-
cessively short for large con-
dominiums to comply with
the lighting standards. Cot-
tle was of the opinion that
the environmental benefit
of the ordinance would be.
minimal in comparison with
the burden it would put on
condominium owners. He
added that there were still
safety concerns on the part
of condominium owners re-
lated to the ordinance.

essary ordinance," coun-

with you to do whatever it
takes to preserve the beach,"
he told the commissioners.
Richard Fowlkes of the
South Walton Turtle Watch
commented that he ap-
plauded the coming togeth-
er of the different interests.
Fowlkes spoke in support of
the' compromise ordinance
but said he had hoped it
would be stronger in protec-
tion of sea turtles.
Fowlkes said he had heard
the statement made that
this ordinance would be one
of the strongest in the state.
"Not so," he said, observing
that contrary to many more,
stringent Florida ordinanc-
es, this one allows lighting
on dune walkovers, ignores
interior lighting, and allows
uplighting.
"I urge you to pass this
ordinance," Fowlkes told the
commissioners.
Robert Kamm, of Sand-
castles Resorts and Hotels,
the company operating the
Sandestin Hilton, had been
an adamant opponent of the
previous draft of the ordi-
nance. He expressed thanks
Fowlkes, the Turtle Watch


and Moliterno for their part
in creating the compromise
draft, which he called "not
great," but did not oppose.
After a motion for ap-
proval by Pridgen, the draft
ordinance was approved,
followed by a "Praise the
Lord!" from Comander.
The ordinance applies
to the area from the mean
high water line to 750 feet
landward. Single-family
residences with up to four
dwelling units or less, in-
cluding rental properties,
will be required to comply
with the lighting standards
by May 1, 2010. All com-
mercial properties will be
required to comply by Dec.
1, 2010.
Pat Blackshear, county
planning and development
services director, told the
commissioners that details
on the ordinance would be
made available to beach-
front property owners on
the county Web -site. Ad-
ditional information on the
ordinance is available by
calling the Walton County
Planning and Development
Services at 267-1955.

asserted.
Alan Osborne, who has
long been a fixture at county,
meetings, was in the audi-
ence to bring up the continu-

about the area's difficulties

the engineering department

Jones was also queried
about the role of code, en-
forcement, especially regard--
ing debris from abandoned
projects. Several citizens
said 'calls to code enforce-
ment bring zero results and
areas identified as problem-
atic are never inspected by
code enforcement. One citi-
zen said code enforcement
is reactive rather thah pro-
active and doesn't seem to
initiate anything, choosing
instead to wait for someone
to call and then seldom do-
ing anything after the call.
Jones asked those citizens

pens and assured them code
enforcement would be scru-
. tinized.
One of the questions asked
for which there seemed to be
no answer was whether or
not there was a county code

perceived conflicts of inter-
est for county employees.

Okaloosa Sh

W. Morris arr
By ALICIA LEONARD

Much to the shock and
dismay of citizens across the
Panhandle, Okaloosa Coun-
ty Sheriff Charlie Morris
was arrested by the Federal
Bureau of Investigations
(FBI) on Feb. 27, in Las Ve-
gas, NV. Teresa Adams, his
administrative director, was
taken into custody at the
Okaloosa County Sheriffs
Office (OCSO) headquar-
ters in Shalimar. Morris
and Adams are accused of
federal theft, fraud, money
laundering and conspiracy.
Gov. Charlie Crist suspend-
ed Morris from office in an
executive order on the same
day.
The charges against
Morris and Adams revolve
around a kick-back scheme.
According to the FBI and the
Internal Revenue Service
(IRS), Morris and Adams are
accused of giving fake bo-
nuses to some deputies un-
der his command and then
requesting a majority of the
funds from those bonuses to
be returned to him in cash.
Other published sources
state that those amounts
ranged from a few thousand
up to $15,000, with Morris
receiving the majority of
those funds back.
In the interim, Crist ap-
pointed Ed Spooner as act-
ing sheriff. Spooner has 36
years of law enforcement
experience and is presently
employed by the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment. Spooner is expected
to hold the temporary post
for four to eight weeks, or
until the Morris case is re-
solved, Gov. Crist decides to
appoint a new sheriff or a
special election is held.
The case came about, ac-
cording to FBI statements,
when one of five OCSO em-
ployees (named as witness-
es in the case) came forward
and requested the. FBI to
intervene.The five worked


eriff Charlie

rested by FBI
with the FBI to build the
case. FBI agent James Van
Pelt on Feb. 25. submitted
an affidavit summarizing
the charges against Mor-
ris, stating it was believed
that Morris, 59, "repeat-
edly utilized subordinate
employees of the Okaloosa
County Sheriffs Office in
order to facilitate a scheme
whereby he has withdrawn
tens of thousands of dollars
in OCSO public funding
for his personal discretion-
ary spending." The affida-
vit states that more than
$40,000 is believed to have
been improperly obtained
by Morris and Adams.
Morris was president
of the Florida Sheriffs As-
sociation (FSA) board of
directors for 2009 and had
ben just recently re-elected
to his position as sheriff in
last years election. The FSA
ousted Morris on. Friday, as
well. The newly re-elected
four-term sheriff is sched-
uled to appear in U.S. Dis-
trict Court in Pensacola on
March 9 at 11 a.m. for his
initial appearance. Though
he was arrested in Nevada,
he will be tried in Florida.
Since he was arrested
on a federal complaint
and hasn't been formal-
ly charged, Morris could
choose to seek a preliminary
examination of the case and
a magistrate judge could
decide the FBI and the IRS
have failed to provide prob-
able cause and the charges
could be dropped. 'However,
spokeswoman for the U.S.
Attorney's office in Pensaco-
la, Dixie Marrow, stated the
documentation supporting
the charges should be suffi-
cient probable cause to take
the charges to a grand jury.
Morris released a state-
ment to the public relating
to the charges, saying, "As
you might imagine, this is

press my heartfelt thanks

to the many members of
the community who have
reached out to offer their
support and concern. There
has been an outpouring of
support from many people,
including personal friends
and many good citizens
whose lives, families and
businesses I have sought to
protect and serve during my
many years working for the
people of Okaloosa County.
My family and I are very
grateful.
"I know that every mem-
ber of the sheriffs office
will continue to perform the
outstanding, dedicated and
professional job for which
they are known. I encour-
age my former colleagues
to give their full support to
Interim Sheriff Ed Spooner
to ensure a smooth and safe
transition.
"The allegations against
me are serious and I have re-
tained counsel to represent
me. I have cooperated with
the government in its inves-
tigation and I look forward
to a full and fair hearing on
the charges. My attorneys
have advised me not to an-
swer 'any questions at this
time, and I am following the
advice of my lawyers. As the
judicial process unfolds, I
humbly ask every citizen to
continue to support the sher-
iffs office and to continue to
respect the men and women
who work so hard, and often
put themselves in harm's
way, to protect our beloved
community."

who had been life-flighted
to Sacred Heart Hospital in
Pensacola, is reported to be
in critical condition. Ariza-
ga-Suarez, transported by
air to the same hospital, is
reportedly in stable condi-
tion. Bilbao-Meza, hospital-
ized at Sacred Heart of the
Emerald Coast, is reported
to be in good condition.
While there had been re-
ports that all 14 persons in
the victimized townhome
resided there, information
released by the sheriffs of-
fice on Feb. 27 revealed a
different situation, stating
that. this had been a social
gathering of young people
from Chile at the residence
of a friend. All were report-
edly in the United States
legally with student work
visas, and there had been no
complaints about noise dis-
turbances from 'the neigh-
borhood in connection with
the gathering.
The Feb. 27 press release
also specified that the shoot-
er had fired into a window of
the townhome from outside
without entering the resi-
dence.
Sheriff Adkinson stated
that the suspect, Baker, had
been involved in at least
three prior incidents, includ-


ing one in 2007 in which he
resisted arrest without vio-
lence.
He confirmed that Baker
was the individual who, ap-
proximately six months ago,
had sent e-mail messages
"considered threatening in
nature" to politicians. Baker
had not been publicly iden-
tified as 'the sender of the
messages at that time.
In August 2008, Tim Nor-
ris, chairman of the Walton
County Republican Execu-
tive Committee, had con-
firmed that a death threat'
had been sent via e-mail to
the Republican Party Vic-
tory Center in Santa Rosa
Beach. Norris had stated
that the threat had targeted
not local but national politi-
cians regardless of party af-
filiation.
Norris said informa-
tion on the threat had been
turned over to the FBI and
to the office of Ralph John-
son, Walton County sheriff
at that time, for investiga-
tion. Baker was not arrest-
ed in connection with the
e-mail message.
Contacted on Feb. 27,
Norris commented that Bak-
er had once been a very good
worker for the party during
the 2004 Bush/Cheney elec-


tion campaign, but that his
behavior had later turned
"a little eccentric." Local
party members did not see
Baker for quite a while,
Norris said, until he again
started to show up at the
campaign center from time
to time in summer 2008 and
the threatening e-mail mes-
sages from-the former party
worker began.
Norris said Baker had en-
countered some health prob-
lems and some "hard times."
Norris explained, "He was
fed up with the system, and
he said he wanted to clean
up all the corruption in
Washington.
'"We asked him to stop
coming around," Norris
recalled, "because he was
making people feel uncon-
fortable." He also recalled
that Sheriff Johnson had
been very helpful in as-
signing deputies to keep an
eye on the campaign center
around the time the threats
occurred.
"This is a very sad day to-
day," Norris concluded.
The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office reported on Feb.
27 that there had as yet
been no indication of motive
in connection with the tragic
incident.

country.
Attendees were also
treated to a variety of
events that included a real
wedding that was held at
the Las Vegas Hilton. The
event was an actual
wedding for a couple who
had: entered a contest
sponsored by the
Catersource Association.
The ceremony and
reception were attended by
some 25 family members
and guests, and more than
1,000 event planners and
caterers.
On the same evening,
the Hard Rock Casino and
Resort turned their
basement into a nightclub
complete with dancers in
spandex gowns and techno
music that igade' attendees
feel they were actually'out
for a night on the town.
The purpose of the parties
was to introduce people to
the latest innovations that
are being offered in the
industry.
Throughout the week,
seminars and classes were
offered in the field of menu
development, event
'management, venue
decisions, event decorating,
and classes on food
preparations and the latest
in catering technology. It
kept attendees. busy
throughout the week and
made for some great
conversation, both for first-
time attendees and
returning veterans.
The final day of the
expo, the show floor was
opened and the Las Vegas
Convention Center rolled
out the red carpet,
introducing industry
businesses to the latest
technology and innovations
in the catering and event
world. I
From rental furniture,
cooking equipment and
LED lighting kits for
concerts, to fine china,
catering and lighting
trucks to linens and ready-
made catering dishes, the
show floor was alive. From
those asking questions and


buying, to those who were
trying to get their products
in the hands of those who
were writing the checks,
everyone was consumed
with decisions.
You may ask how this
affects us back in the
Florida Panhandle. Well, it
does in a variety of ways.
Many local and regional
event planners, wedding
coordinators, nightclub
owners, restaurant
managers, caterers, florists
and even television and
recording executives, were
wined and dined
throughout the week.
Anyone that develops,
manages, or coordinates an
event, should have been on
the Vegas strip last week.
While riding the
tram system from the MGM
Grand to the Las Vegas
Hilton, I was involved in a
conversation with one of the
executive directors for the
annual Grammy awards.
His position is to plan all
the menus for all seven
parties that go on before
and the night of the annual
Grammy award
presentations.
He said he was in Vegas
to check out the newest
concepts in event lighting,
table linens and the newest
liquor and wine variations
being offered by vendors
from around the world. His
'decisions would affect what
the performers ate and
drank throughout the week
at dinners and parties,
backstage while waiting to
present, and what they

had been presented..
Another conversation
that I had was with a
caterer out of Memphis who
was making his eighth
annual trip to the show. He
said this' is where he gets
his ideas for the events that
he puts on in his hometown.
Three of his annual events
are held at the Elvis
Presley Estate, where he is
responsible .for the menus
for the King's birthday bash
and the estate's annual
celebrity charity gala.

introduce us to another
world of fantasy, intrigue
and glamour.
The annual event is
held in various locations,
but Las Vegas sees more
back-to-back convention
dates, partly because of its
proximity to the recording
and film industry of
California, and partly for
the city's glitzy excitement.
Only Vegas can provide a
setting for over-the-top,

events.
So the next time you
attend an event here on the
Florida Panhandle, eat
something new on the
menu at your favorite
restaurant, or attend an
over-the-top party, it might
just have been seen and
recreated from what was
presented at this past
year's Catersource
Conference and Expo.
Sometimes it is good to tell
and show what you did
Vegas and not keep all the
secrets of Sin City.


,ATTENDEES of the 2009 Catersource Conference and
Expo held in Las Vegas last week were given the chance
to attend seminars and conferences on learning to cook
for large numbers of people and new innovations for
preparing their meals. One of the more enjoyable
attributes of the conference was beitig able to sample
their dishes.

QUASI-JUDICIAL ITEMS:

4. CYBONEY RV PARK ABANDON-
MENT Project number 08-_08-00005.
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 strip of land
approximately 8 feet x 329 feet, on the
west side of Government Lot 069, paral-
lel to Professional Place and adjacent to
Crystal Village Condominiums to Walton
County.

1 5. 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
have read a 25-foot easement on either
side of the centerline of the platted roads
within Plantation Subdivision to comprise
a 50-foot easement.

6. HOLLOW LAKE Project number
07-001-00075. This is a major develop-
ment order application submitted by Em-
erald Coast Associates, consisting of 171
single family units and 77 multi-family
units on 169.57 acres with a future land
use of NBNPA/mixed use residential.
The site is at 3411 C.R. 3280 (parcel
numbers 30-1S-18-14000-010-0000 and

BRUCE CULPEPPER


Jr., and the horror film,
"Freezer Burn."
In addition to the jobs al-
ready in the bag, Culpepper
has been making the audi-
tion rounds at Universal
Studios in Orlando, thanks
to the efforts of his agency,
Level Model & Talent Man-
agement of Tampa. Read-
ing and screen-testing for a
major studio has been both
challenging and rewarding,
and Culpepper has high
hopes for success in crack-
ing major markets.
Meantime, he continues
working at the front desk
of Creative Salon, Spa and
Tanning, a day job he en-
joys very much. Culpepper
also takes vocal, dance and
acting lessons, honing. his
craft in expectation of both
big and small breaks. He is
grateful to the tutors and
mentors that have all con-
tributed to giving him such
an encouraging head start
in the acting business.
In 2009, Bruce's two film
projects are "Psychedelic
Shack," from Kenneth Jones
Films (premiering in April
in Tallahassee) and "Saints
of Mount Christopher," di-
rected by Shane Dean, set
for a Mobile premiere some-
time this year.
