Federal

dollars

designated

for U.S. 331
Staff Reports
According to U.S. Sena-
tor Bill Nelson, $237,500
in federal funds has been
designated for the widening
project of U.S. Highway 331
by the federal government
along with an additional
$95,000 towards the widen-
ing project of the Clyde B.
Wells Bridge. The funding
was secured by Sen. Nelson
and U.S. Representative Jeff
Miller in the 2009 Omnibus
Appropriations Bill follow-
ing several years of visits to
Washington, D.C. by Walton
County commissioners and
administrative leaders.
Senator Nelson an-
nounced the appropriation
to Walton County 'commis-
sioners Kenneth Pridgen,
and Cecilia Jones, and other
county officials during their
visit with congressional
leaders in Washington, D.C.
March 13. President Obama
had just signed the bill,
which included the funding
for Walton County.
Federal fuiiding for wid-
ening U.S. 331 is the No. 1
priority for Walton County,
says County Administra-
tor Ronnie Bell. "This is the
first time we have received
federal dollars for this proj-
ect," he says. "Although our
request to federal leaders
for this project is $7 million
for widening the highway
and $5 million for widen-
ing the bridge, the $332,000
awarded for these projects
will enable us to secure fu-
ture funds more easily," he
says.
.Rep. Jeff Miller agreed
with county leaders that,
U.S. 331 plays a major role
in public safety and economic
development. "Highway 331
is a critical north/south ar-
tery for Walton County and
the entire length of Northt
west Florida," he says. "This.
expansion means reduced
traffic, ease of evacuation
in case ofa hurricane, and
a potential shot-in-the-arm

City employees to


replace antiquated


fire hydrants


By JEFFREY POWELL
DeFuniak Springs Public
Works employees with the
Water and Sewer Depart-
ment are embarking on a
program that will replace.
several antiquated fire hy-
drants throughout the city.
Work crews recently
completed the removal and
replacement, of ah old hy-
drant at the corner of Sixth
Street and Baldwin Avenue,
near The Book Store. The
previous hydrant had been
inoperable for some time.


According to DeFuniak
Springs Public Works Direc-
tor/Assistant City Manager
Bill Hollo~way, the project
will- be ongoing throughout
upcoming months and com-
pleted as scheduling allows.
. "We are out in the field
to do the best job we can,"
said Holloway. "DeFuniak
Springs :Public Works has
very good employees work-4
ing on the hydrants. I would
also like to thank the citi-
zens of the city for their pa-
tience while we work on this
project."


According to Public
Works Water and Sewer Su-
pervisor, Kenneth Gavins,
the project will be complet-
ed in a more timely;manner
due to the recent acquisition
of new equipment to be used
specifically for jobs such as
this one.
"I want to thank the city
and Bill Holloway for all
of the equipment we now
have," said. Gavinrs. "Not
only does it help us, but it
also insures the safety of the
DeFuniak Springs citizens."'.

Paxton


water


rates


must go


up
By RON KELLEY
The Paxton Town Council
revisited some of their most
controversial issues during
their recent regular meet-
ing.
Councilman Mark War-
ren, who oversees the city's
water department, brought
back a series of findings,
based on a rate-study pre-
sentation by utilities expert
Coy Donaldson.
Warren said he was no
expert, but thanks to the
detailed- presentation by
Donaldson, he was' able to
formulate some conclusions
and recommendations about .
-increasing the water rates.
Warren reminded the Coun-
cil'that they had held the
line on any rate increases .
to the point that the city
'had been unable to bring in
enough revenue to make its
annual .bond payments, a
requirement.'
"We're not doing that.
When we borrowed the mon-
ey, w were required to set
our rates to cover the costs
of the bond payment for the
water system. Paxton water
revenues are not sufficient
to cover department expen-
ditures. We fell short each
year. We've had budget
shortfalls year after year.
Unfortunately, our contract
requires us to set rates that
*meet the loan payment."
Warren made it clear
that the increase would be
for the city water depart-
ment, not the sewer depart-
ment, and there would be '
no fee increases for meters
or service hook-ups. He said
the base-rate changes would
cause some consumers to
pay more and others to pay
less, because of how the for-
mula is configured. "It's not

Education; Amtrak ser-
vice and appraisals rounded
oUt a briefer than usual De-
'Funiak Springs City Coun-
cil meeting on March 23.
First on the agenda was
a narrowly-passed educa-
tional reimbursement poli-
cy. City Manager Kim Kirby
outlined the policy that, "we
have been working on for
sometime now. It is specific
to help reimburse workers
who take classes relating
specifically to the jobs they
now hold." This would be
a first for the city and was
brought about by request of
employees.
Kirby told the Council-
that she and staff studied
many other agencies' poli-
cies to try and develop the
policy for the city and that
the local colleges in the
past had been able to match
funds for other agencies.
She said Northwest Florida
State College (NFSC) will be


unable to match the $2,000
that the city had put aside
in this year's budget for this
project due to non-funding,
but might be able to in the
future.
The expense reimburse-
ments must be approved by
the Council and are avail-
able to employees on a first-
come, first-served basis. The
course or study must be job-
related. The school must be
accredited. The employee
must be full-time, attend
classes on their own (no flex
'scheduling) and must re-
main in the city's employ for
one year after the course is
finished or must reimburse
the city for the prior pay-
ment, if they leave before
that one-year period.
Councilman James Huff-
man asked what type of
education this would cover.
Kirby responded that it
would be job-specific, not
for core classes relating to a
degree. Huffman responded,


"I think it's a good idea, but
I see the potential for some
problems. How do we deter-
mine how much we put in
it every year and who gets
it?" Kirby said that would
fall to the Council and what
the budget looked like every
year. The employee would
go through the reimburse-
ment process after finishing
the class.
Councilman Don Har-
rison spoke in favor of the
policy, "I like the fact that
they would have to apply
for the reimbursement af-
ter they finished the class."
Huffman expressed his con-
cern that employees may
take advantage of the offer
and leave employment with
the city after finishing the
degree the city helped pay
for them to achieve. Kirby
responded that the budget
of $2,000 would not go very
far and Harrison agreed,

ACT Walton moves forward with farmers' market


By LEAH STRATMANN
A few weeks into the new
initiative Agriculture and
Communities Together Wal-
ton (ACT Walton), participa-
tion at the meetings is dwin-
dling, but the movement is
still gaining momentum. At
a meeting last week at the
Coastal Branch Library,
there were only a few peo-
ple attending, most of them
consumers.. Only one grower
was at the meeting.
Kendra Zamojski, an
extension agent with the
University of Florida, has
been coordinating the ef-
fort and points out there is


a great need for both a reli-
able customer base and reli-
able growers for a successful
farmers' market.
"One of the things I'm
learning is that businesses
are reluctant to take on this
endeavor because of liability
and since ACT has no fund-
ing, we cannot purchase li-
ability insurance," Zamojski
said. "I have approached
businesses in Freeport and
the response has been unen-
thusiastic."
After the meeting howev-
er, the group got some good
news. Via e-mail Zamojski
said, "Owl's Head is going


to .host the farmers' market.
It will open Saturday, May
2 from 8 a.m. to 3 .p.m. It
will be open weekly. This is
a very exciting partnership.
We are recruiting growers,
crafters, and artists. Booth
space will be free. Inter-
ested vendors can contact
me at the extension office,
850-892-8172. Additionally,
I am meeting with the Flo-
rala mayor and an Alabama
extension director to discuss
working together to pro-
mote/create a farmers' mar-
ket trail."
Zamojski also plans to de-
velop workshops for people


who want to make breads,
jams and jellies. She will
coordinate with the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and the
Health Department so these
vendors will know how to
Make these products safe
and up to the state stan-
dards. She also wants to ex-
plore the idea of a commu-
nity kitchen where people
can bring prepared foods to
a designated location and
take away prepared food for
the family. "In this way we
can help get healthy meals
out to moderate and low-
income families. I am hop-
ing to partner with the com-
I


munity garden on this," she
said.
A mission statement for
the group has been writ-
ten. A mission statement is
needed in order to apply for
available grants. The state-
ment reads: "To support lo-
cally grown food and locally
owned businesses and to
educate the public about the
benefits of buying local."
Goals include create and
marketing sustainable ag-
riculture practices and poli-
cies; providing a network to
unite producers, consumers,
and businesses in collab-
orative projects to promote


local food and local busi-
nesses; creating opportuni-
ties enhancing the economic
conditions for locally owned
business, local producers,
and local, communities, and
educating consumers on the
importance of buying local.
The next meeting of ACT
Walton is scheduled for 3
p.m. at the old post office
in Freeport on April 21.
Zamojski said she would like
to see herself in more of an
education role and noted a
structure of officers is need-
ed to gain non-profit status,
and asked people to come to
the next meeting with nomi-
nations for officers.


DeFuniak Springs Visitors


Bureau hopes to extend hours


By JEFFREY POWELL
Clearly the number-one
tourist destination in Wal-
ton County is the beach.
After all, the beaches here
are some of the nicest in the
nation. But after everyone is
sunburned and tired of sand
in their shoes, visitors often
look for alternative sights to
see. The problem is, where
to go and how to get there.
The DeFuniak Springs Visi-
tors Bureau (DSVB) in De-
Funiak Springs is ready to
solve this problem.


Located at 1162 Circle
Drive, the DSVB comprises
businesses, organizations
and individuals poised to
welcome-visitors and newly-
located, individuals to the
DeFuniak Springs area.
The DSVB provides inter-
ested individuals with in-
formation concerning local
events, places of interests,
area parks, local eateries
and maps to get them there.
The group works in coopera-
tion with the city and the
Walton County Chamber of


Commerce.
"We get great cooperation
from the city," 'said DSVB
treasurer Marilyn Louw-
erens. "The city maintains,
the building and grounds.
This endeavor would not be
possible without their con-
tinued support." '
*, ,Currently the DSVB is
open on Saturdays from 11
.a.m. to 3 p.m. and for special
events. However, the group
is hoping to extend those
hours with the help of addi-
tional volunteers.


"Our goal is to .promote
DeFuniak Springs and the
local area," 'said Lquwerens.
"We would like to be open
more, especially on Sundays
and for the many special
events throughout the year.
The bottom line is we need
volunteers."
In addition to helping vis-
itors, the DSVB is involved
with "Peddler's Alley,"
which allows vendors to sell
their products in an outdoor
setting. For a $10 fee, ped-
dlers are able to set up a
booth and sell their wares.
The event will be held on
April 4, rain or shine. The
deadline for submitting an
application is March 31.
"Peddler's Alley is an op-
portunity for people to offer
their products in a unique
environment," said' Louw-
erens. "That environment.
is enjoyable, and allows peo-
ple to see a great variety of
items."

Walton Schools earn state

designation as academically

high-performing school

districts for the third year


"We are proud to an-
nounce that we have been
designated as one of only
seven school districts in the
state as an academically
high-performing school dis-
trict for the third consecutive
year," said Walton County
School District Superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson.
Earlier this week, the
Florida' State Board of Edu-
cation designated fourteen
school districts as Aca-
demically High-Performing.
Walton Schools are among
only seven of the 14 dis-
tricts initially designated
as Academically High Per-
forming by the State Board
of Education in 2006-07
and are maintaining their
third year of designation.
These districts,include Wal-
ton, Calhoun, Charlotte,
Gilchrist, Martin, Nassau,
and St. Johns. Neighboring
Okaloosa County was desig-
nated for a second year as
an Academically High-Per-
forming School District.

structing the track was to give people a safe place to ride, away from traffic.



Motorcross track



found in violation


By DOTTY NIST
A *motorcross track lo-.
cated in the Gaskin Com-
munity north of DeFuniak
Springs has been found in
violation for commercial op-
eration. Known as Utopia
Motorcross, the property is
located in a General Agri-'
culture land use area near
residences. The decision on
the track came at the March
19 Walton County Code En-
forcement Board meeting.
Walton County Code
Enforcement officers had
placed a stop-work order on
the track in August 2008,
and the owners had been
directed to shut down their
business Web site and allow
use of the track by family
members only. The case had
previously been brought be-
.fore the code enforcement
board in October 2008, with
the owners being charged
with violation of the stop
work order.
They had testified that
the track was only being
used by family and friends.
They had stated that they
had hoped to. make a busi-
ness out of it, based, on as-
surances from a planner, no
longer with'the county, that
a motorcross track business
would be an allowable use
on the property. They had
testified that $200,000Q, had
then been spent to build the
track.. The case had been
tabled to allow the property
owners investigate a plan
amendment that would
eliminate violations in con-
nection with the use of the
property as a commercial
track.
When the case was heard,
again: on March 19,,. Pat
Blackshear, county .plan-
ning and development sers-
vices, was asked about the
plan amendment possibil-
ity. ,Blackshear said plan-
ners had determined that
they. could not support the
property owners in applying
for the amendment, since
families live near the track.
After the discussions with
planners, the owners did not
pursue the amendment, she
explained.
A group of neighbors of
the track attended to op-
pose the operation. Gilbert

and Michelle Ray brought
photos of groups of riders
on the track and played re-
cordings of track noise from
their home. Gilbert Ray said
it was impossible to stay at.
home while the track was
in operation because of the
noise.
Code Enforcement Board.
Officer Mark Kelley told the
board members that; based
on the track Web site, it was
still active on a commercial
basis, and that the site in-
dicated that anyone could
ride. The site mentioned
the acceptance of.donations,
and Kelley said the owners
had been told that accepting
money represented a viola-
tion.
Property owner Angela
Jordan said the owners had
been away for some time,
working in Texas. She add-
ed that they had understood
that not only family, but
friends were allowed to ride,


and that they had limited
track use to those individu-
als. She said there were no
riders on some weekends,
and that sometimes no one
rode for a period of over a
month.
Neighbors shook their
heads in disagreement at
the last statement.
The board members found
the track in violation and
voted to order any commer-
cial activity there to cease
and desist, including, with-
in 10 days, removal of the
track Web site and stopping
the use of the .phone answer-
ing machine for advertising
the track as a commercial
enterprise. The property
owners are to be subject to
$250-per-day fines if a vio-
lation of the board order oc-
curs.
The decision is not to af-
fect the property owners'
ability to ride their own ve-
hicles onthe track.


Florida Statutes, Sec-
tion 1003.621, requires that
"each school district that
satisfies the eligibility crite-
ria in this subsection shall
be designated by the State
Board of Education as an
academically high-perform-
ing school district." The
section is stated as follows:
"A school district is in-
cluded if in the most recent-
year for which school grades
are available, it meets the
two academic criteria re-
quired by s. 1003.621, F.S.:
Beginning with the
2004-2005 school year,
earns a, grade of "A" under
s. 1008.34(7), F.S., for two
consecutive years; and
Has no district-operated
school that earns a grade of
"F' under s. 1008.34, F.S
For each of those dis-
tricts, the district meets the
additional requirements of
academically high perform-
ing school districts:
Class size compliance -
This column records wheth-


er the district complies with
all class size requirements
in s. 1, Art. IX of the State
Constitution and s. 1003.03,
F.S., in the most recent year
for which class size is calcu-
lated.
Audit compliance The
district has no material
weaknesses or instances
of material noncompliance
noted in the annual finan-
cial audit conducted pursu-
ant to s. 218.39, F.S."
"We are working together
as a team to continue striv-
ing for academic success in
all schools and for all stu-
dents in our schools," said
Anderson. "This designa-
tion confirms we are moving
in the right direction. I'm
proud of our administra-
tors, teachers, support and
district personnel that work
together everyday with the
school board to ensure suc-
cess for our children. Wal-
ton County School District
is a great place to be."


DeFuniak Springs couple

hospitalized in traffic accident


A DeFuniak Springs cou-
ple are respectively in seri-
ous and critical condition
in area hospitals, following
a vehicular crash just after
midnight on March 22, ac-
cording to the Florida High-'
way Patrol.
Bart W. Woods, 45, was
driving- northbound on
Delaware Road when. he
apparently exceeded the
speed limit on a curve, caus-
ing his vehicle to' leave the


roadway. It hit loose dirt on
the shoulder and completely
overturned, hitting trees
and shrubs.
Bart Woods and his pas-
senger, Pauline W. Woods,
44, were taken to North
Okaloosd Medical Center.
Bart, in critical condition,
was later transferred to Sa-
cred Heart Hospital.
Pauline was reportedly
seriously injured in the
crash. She was wearing a


seatbelt, and Bart was not.
The accident remains un-
der investigation, including
whether alcohol was a fac-
tor.

Don't tread on me!

By RON KELLEY
Recently, a Faithful Reader sent a video e-mail to me
whose message was so well-stated,, so simple that a child
could understand it and so close to what I had been plan-
ning to say to you today, that I decided to include part of it
here.
What would've happened in 1789 or 1942 or on Sept. 11,
2001 if a top government official had stepped in front of the
people and publicly proclaimed that America was "a nation
of cowards?" He would have been run out of the country
on a rail, packaged in tar and feathers, at least. But that's
what just happened here in 2009. Eric Holder, the nation's
new Attorney General and another in a long list of corrupt
presidential employees, said it on Feb. 18 and you did
nothing'
In the greatest show of arrogance and. disdain any Con-
gress ever showed any citizenry, your dysfunctionally-elite,
self-interested, non-representing representatives have
passed the largest spending bill in historywithout reading
it and you did nothing.
You want them to obey your constitutional mandate aind
secure our borders, and they ignore you.
You ask them to enforce your immigration laws and they

Democratic Party and their constituents didn't root for the

My Republican father, who fought in two wars for this
country, instilled in his children the right of everyone to
express their opinions. He also instilled in us the responsi-
bility to respect others, regardless of their opinions.
By the way, I don't think President Obama's policies of
spending huge amounts on continued bailouts will prove to
be a success. I fear for my grandchildren's future. I don't
like his association with ACORN that has been proven to
be less than scrupulous. There are lots of things about his
policies that I disagree with. I will always be hopeful that
he proves me wrong.

Property tax deadline nearing


The Walton County Tax
Collector's Office reminds
property owners that March
31 is the last day to pay
property taxes before incur-
ring a penalty.
"We encourage all Wal-
ton County property own-
ers to pay their property

injured in

crash

A DeFuniak Springs man
was seriously injured when
his vehicle struck a drain-
age ditch and overturned.
The accident occurred last
Saturday at around 10:21
p.m., on U.S. 331 North near
Sparkleberry Lane.
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigating trooper
C.L. Alexander reported that
a vehicle driven by David
J. Smith, 40, of DeFuniak
Springs was traveling north
on U.S. 331, and for an "un-
known reason" traveled
into the southbound lane..
The vehicle drove onto the
shoulder and struck a con-
crete drainage ditch, which
propelled it into the air. The
vehicle landed on the shoul-
der and overturned before
coming to a stop. Smith was
transported by air to Sacred
heart Hospital in Pensacola,
where he was listed in seri-
ous condition.
Alcohol was not a -factor,
and Smith was reportedly
wearing a seatbelt. Charges
are listed as pending.

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


Brain-stealing doctor



blows whistle


By ASHLEY AMASON
You may not know the
name Dr. Victor DeNoble,
but you will, and you already
know his story. In fact, the
movie "The Insider," star-


ring Russell Crowe, was
based on DeNoble, but he
calls the film "total bogus."
Speaking to Walton High
School students and in a
presentation at the Walton


County Health Department
last Wednesday, DeNoble
told the true story of being
the inside whistleblower on
big tobacco companies.
In 1980, DeNoble worked


for Phillip Morris as an as-
sociate senior scientist in
the behavioral research de-
partment. It was his job to
create a drug which would
retain nicotine's addictive
qualities (keep the brain ad-
dicted), but would not cause
heart problems.
In his research, he real-
ized nicotine actually chang-
es the cellular structure of
the brain. In a lab experi-
ment using rats, a rat would
step on a pedal to receive in-
jections of nicotine into the
blood stream which trav-
elled to the lungs, the heart,
and the brain. The nicotine
was released in ten small
doses (or puffs), which were
proportional to a "rat-sized
cigarette." Within weeks the

.DR. VICTOR DENOBLE holds a lung cancer patient's
brain and a lab monkey's brain, both of which show altera-
tions in the cellular structure, caused by nicotine.

rats were up to 90 cigarettes
per day.
When DeNoble took the
information that nicotine
changes brain cells to -Phil-
lip Morris executives, he was
told it could not be proven
and to cease brain research.
Faced with the challenge
that his research could not
be proven, DeNoble decided
to inject nicotine directly
into the rats' brains. Initial-
ly, the nicotine left the rats
paralyzed for approximately
15 minutes. DeNoble con-
tinued' the injections daily,
and by day 15 the rats were
no longer paralyzed. Their
brains had adjusted because
the chemical dopamine was
altered.
DeNoble took his findings.
to the executives, who again
told him to cease brain re-
search and focus only on cre-
ating a drug which would ad-
dict the brain but not harm
the heart. Phillip Morris ex-
ecs were so angry about De-
Noble's brain research, they
removed all of the rats from
his laboratory.
Of course, that did not
stop DeNoble. He received
a phone call that Sarah, a
lab' monkey who was used
for nicotine and other addic-
tion experiments, had died.
A true scientist, he had
Sarah frozen and shipped,
to him, where he autopsied
her brain and discovered
her brain cells were altered,
even though no nicotine re-
mained in her system.
Going one step further;
DeNoble met a dying lung
cancer patient who had not
smoked in two years. He
asked if, upon the man's
death, he could have his
brain for research, to which
the man replied, "you're
weird."
DeNoble said, "I..know.
Can I have your brain?"
When the man died, his
wife called DeNoble and
said he could have the brain.
Upon removing the brain,
DeNoble found exactly what,
he expected; that although
there was no nicotine in the
man's system for two years,
his brain cells were still
changed.
This semi-permanent al-
teration of the brain cells (it
can sometimes be 'resolved
within 5-10 years) is the
reason smokers who quit
say they wake up every day
wanting a cigarette.
After autopsying the
man's brain, in 1982, DeNo-
ble again presented Phillip
Morris with his discovery.
Immediately they told him
he was fired. "No, I'm not,"
he-said.
When asked why he
thought he was not fired, he
told the executives he had
created the drug that would
still addict the brain, but
not damage the heart. This
man-made drug used a filter
that removed 80 percent of
the cancer-causing agents.
DeNoble is the only person
to have ever seen the "safe-
cigarette."
On Apr. 5, 1984,. Phillip
Morris told DeNoble they,
safe cigarette because it
would save lives. Confused,
DeNoble asked, "Excuse
me?" The tobacco company
explained that since 1953,it
had proclaimed to Congress
and the American pub-
lic there is nothing unsafe
S about smoking a cigarette.
By producing DeNoble's
safe cigarette, it would re-
veal they lied. Additionally,
Sif the safe cigarette indeed
saved lives, the tobacco com-
panies would have to pull
their other brands, costing
them billions.
With this revelation,
DeNoble and his partner
were fired and reminded of
the agreement they signed
upon accepting their posi-
tions, which said they could
never volunteer any damag-


ing information they found
during research. When De-
Noble's partner asked what
they were going to do, with a
. smile, he said "we're going to
steal top-secret documents."
In a nervous fury, De-
Noble loaded every top-se-
cret document he could find
into boxes, and .at one point
was so nervous he pulled a
desk drawer off its hinges.


Not having time to fix it,
he threw the drawer in the
boxes as well, loaded it all
in the van his partner drove,
and sped away. .
DeNoble stored the boxes
in his garage, then contact-
ed an attorney, told him the
story, and delivered them
to him. Two weeks later the
attorney called to say the
boxes had been stolen. Ten
years later, in 1994, DeNo-
ble found out the attorney
sold the documents back to,
Phillip Morris.
After ten years, DeNoble
and his. partner had both
resigned the idea of expos-
ing the tobacco companies,
when DeNoble's wife asked
what he would do if he
could prove he had a secret
laboratory at Phillip Morris
where he performed brain
studies. He told her, "I'd call
the FBI." She replied, "Get
them on the phone."
'DeNoble's wife, Kimi, had
looked through the boxes
ten years earlier and found
the broken desk drawer.
She saw items in the bottom
of the drawer she thought
her husband would want
to keep: pictures of the rat
experiments. She took them
out of the boxes before he
delivered them to the at-
torney and found them 10
years later.
Because he could not vio-
late his agreement and vol-
unteer damaging informa-
tion, DeNoble left his home
state, Delaware, traveled to
New Jersey and mailed a
'single picture of one of his'
lab rats to the FBI, with no
return address. That was on
Monday. Thursday the FBI
was at his house.
DeNoble was taken be-
fore a' federal court judge
and pledged' an oath to tell
the truth. After doing so, he
asked the judge what being
under oath meant. Confused
and insulted, the judge
asked how he could pledge
something he .did not under-
stand. Still. DeNoble asked
the judge to clarify "under
oath." The judge. explained
that he had to tell the truth
about his research. In one
short sentence, the judge
pardoned DeNoble's prior
contract with Phillip Mor-
ris. He was no longer volun-
teering information, he was:
being ordered by a federal
court judge to reveal it.
In 1994, he was released
from his confidential-
ity agreement with Phillip
Morris by the 104th Con-
gress. DeNoble became the
first whistleblower to testify
against big tobacco compa-
nies. However, -his task was
not a coveted one. In fact,
his position left him and his
wife in serious danger.
President Bill Clinton
himself called DeNoble at
home and told him to go
outside where Secret Ser-
vice agents would take him
and his wife into protective
custody. They were secretly
held in warehouses in Wash-


Q


ington D.C. until DeNoble
testified to his findings in
front of Congress, Al Gore's
Tobacco Settlement Com-
mittee, and the Food and
Drug Administration.
DeNoble's testimony re-
sulted in '$740 billion in
fines to tobacco companies,
as well as .the restriction of
their youth-targeted adver-
tisements and banning of
television advertisements.
When asked if he received
a negative reaction for his
animal experiments, De-
Noble said, "We had to use
animals because we didn't
have computers back then."
We have such intelligent
computer programs now, he
explained, because animal
research was done then.
"Science is not a revolution,"
he says, "It is an evolution."
.Charlie Evans, producer
of "The Aviator" starring
Leonardo DiCaprio, will de-
pict DeNoble's story in an
upcoming biographical film
titled "Addiction Incorpo-
rated," due to be released
within the next two years.
DeNoble now travels the
country, sharing his story
with 'students. His wife,
Kimi, remains in San Diego
performing cancer research,
but he says with a smile,
"The day she, retires, I'm
done."

"We are only talking about

Discussion ensued and
Kirby said they would prob-

entire fund for many classes
for one person. "I can't see
that happening," she said.
"I think this will be spread

Councilman Henry Ennis
said, "What does happen if
we don't have it next year?"
Kirby responded, "Then we
can't fund it, but we still

Man arrested for stealing backhoe


GRAND THEFT SUS-
PECT' Elijah Allen Kitchen.


On March 15, deputies
with the Holmes County
Sheriffs Office responded
to a report of a suspicious
person on CR-173 north on
Bonifay. While en route the
Holmes County Commu-
,nications Center received
another call that the suspi-
cious person was traveling
north down the highway on'
a backIoe. When the deputy'
arrived in the area, he locat-
ed the backhoe stuck in the
ditch. The deputy continued
traveling north and observed
a w/m, identified as Elijah
Allen Kitchen, 26, waving
his arms. The deputy made
contact with Kitchen. Upon
further questioning Kitchen


admitted that he had been
involved in an argument
with his girlfriend at a res-
taurant in Bonifay, then left
walking towards his house
when he came across the
backhoe, which 'belongs to
the Holmes County Road
Department. Kitchen stated
that he would have made it
home if the backhoe had not
gotten stuck.
Kitchen was ,placed un-
der arrest and booked into
the Holmes County Jail for
grand theft. Sheriff Tim
Brown stated that "due to a
concerned citizen's willing-
ness to get involved, this
case was quickly solved and
an arrest was made."

CHARGED WITH SEX-
UAL BATTERY is Michael
Lee Pettis.


Man charged

with capital
sexual

battery

On March 16, investiga-
tors with the Holmes Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office arrested
Michael Lee Pettis, 40, of
Bonifay, for capital sexual
battery. The charges stem
from an incident in January
2009 in which Pettis alleg-
edly performed oral sex on
a four-year-old. Due to the
severity of the charge, an
extensive investigation was
conducted which led to his
arrest. Pettis was booked
irito the Holmes County Jail
'and released on a $25,000
bond.

eluding those of salaried po-
sitions, and he felt uncom-
fortable with that issue. "I
think they can afford to pay
for their degrees much eas-
ier than some of our hourly
workers," he said. "I'm not
sure I feel comfortable with-
out more specific guidelines
in place in this policy. I don't
think it's clear enough and
see some potential prob-
lems."
Harrison made a motion
to accept the policy and the
issue passed 3-2, with Ennis
and Huffman voting nay.
The Council then voted
unanimously to pass a reso-
lution requesting Amtrak to
restore Sunset Limited pas-
senger service in Florida.
Prior to Hurricane Katrina
in 2005, Amtrak had oper-
ated a three day per week
limited passenger service
between New Orleans and
destinations in Florida. The
resolution cited the need for
alternative modes of trans-
portationf, support to infra-
structure, reduced road con-
gestion, a more fuel-efficient


transportation system and
the need for a step toward
the revitalization a res-
toration of the Florid;: Gulf
Coast.
The Council also voted
unanimously in favor ofshar-
ing the cost of an appraisal
of the former county health
department building located
in DeFuniak, Springs with
Walton County, to assess
the cost and to work toward
using the building, if pos-
sible. One option mentioned
was to move the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department
into the empty building, if
both parties could reach an
agreement, since both the
county and city share own-
ership of the building.
The Council approved
unanimously to appoint
election managers, deputy
clerk, a canvassing board
and approve poll workers
for the upcoming city elec,
tions to be held on April 14.
The next City Hall meet-
ing is scheduled for April 13
at 6 p.m.

pretty, but we've waited so
long as a council to do this
that it's unavoidable. It's,
no one's fault, but the sys-
tem is degrading even as
we speak and we have to do
something. It's agonizing to
see where it has to go, from
where we were."
Warren suggested a two-
phased approach an initial
rate increase soon followed
by a second increase in Oc-
tober during the next fiscal
year.
The study recommended
an' immediate base rate of
$5.05 plus $2.95 for 1,000
gallons used by city resi-
dents. For consumers out-
side the city limits, the base
rate would be $6.05 plus
$3.55 for 1,000 gallons and
$12.15 for 2,000 gallons or
more.
In October, the base rates
would increase to $7.40 for
city residents and $8.90 for
outer residents. The wa-
ter rates would remain the
same for consumers using
1,000 gallons, but the 2,000
gallon rate would increase
to $13.30 for city residents
and $16 for those outside
the city limits.
Such rate changes, would
have to be legally adver-
tised. The Council accepted
the information and plans
to hold a workshop on the is-
sue in April when the Coun-
cil's meeting hours return to
7 p.m.
In an unusual move,
Council attorney Lori By-
tell proposed that her rates
be lowered. Currently, By-
tell charges the Council an
hourly fee for work done.
She suggested changing that.
to a lower flat rate. "During
these uncertain economic
times, I think it's important
to cut the smaller entities a
break. Rather than bill on
an hourly rate until we all
get past this financial situa-
tion let's just operate on a
flat rate, $250, whether it's
three hours of work or 30.
The board enthusiastically
agreed.
Mayor Thomas quipped,
"At last, a cheap attorney!"
"Not cheap," she said with
a grin, "just reasonable."
The Council discussed
parking problems on nights
the Dixie Youth Little
League (DYLL) games are

issues, provide simple solu-
tions, and to offer different

played. Problems arise
when livestock-laden trucks
are trying/to reach the live-
stock building to offload
animals for the next day's
auction. DYLL representa-
tives agreed to try to direct
sports fans to park away
from the livestock area, but
noted that the.truck drivers
sometimes took up a major-
ity of the available parking.
The Council said they would
speak to the drivers to try to
reduce parking problems for
both groups.
4 Next, Councilman Bill
McRae brought up the is-
sue of the light bill for the
concession stand on DYLL
nights. 'He. said said the
bill averages out to $200 a
month and he feels that the
DYLL should pay the light
bill during the three months
of their Little League sea-
son.
DYLL representative
Christa Merrifield-Mitchell
objected, saying that the
city bathrooms, irrigation
system and grinder station
also contribute to the high
monthly electric costs, so it's
not just the DYLL events
that contribute to the prob-
lem. "I don't know why we
keep doing this," she said.
"It seems like we're always
at odds with the city and I
don't understand why. It's
the city's park. We're just
out there running it for
the children. At $220 per
month, that's about a dollar
per-child."
Merrifield-Mitchell re-
minded McRae that Pax-
ton's agreement with the
county requires the city to
cover all costs. McRae coun-
tered that the city's agree-
ment with DYLL calls for
the sports group to contrib-
ute to the costs of the ball-
field's operations. Several
DYLL, members said that
part -of the problem is with
the inadequate power pole
at the park that is supply-
ing electricity for all of the
various park systems.
Mayor Hayward Thomas
said DYLL only uses the
field for three months out
of the year. Though the
monthly bill during those
three months is often higher
than $200, the bill over the
entire year averages out to
about $200 monthly.


Councilwoman Jenice
Armstrong noted that the
budget for this year antici-
pated the electric costs and
suggested that the Council
consider paying the average
annual amount of $2,400 for
the electric bill, on the con-
-dition that if the average in-
creases above that amount,
DYLL would pay the differ-
ence.
Councilwoman Ann Sex-.
ton agreed, noting that, "The
children are important."
'She made a motion based on
Armstrong's suggestion and
it passed 4-1, with McRae
voting no.
In other Council business,
at the behest of Councilman
Bobby Kemp, the Council
agreed to pay Councilman
McRae $60 per month to
open and close the city land-
fill every other week.
The Council also agreed
to switch to a new security
company, Okaloosa Walton
Security and Surveillance,
for the same price they have
been paying the current
company. The 'city's secu-
rity contract has expired,
but Bytell said she'd like to
review the contract to make
sure that there is not an au-
tomatic renewal clause be-
fore the switch is officially
made.
Regarding the annual
spring cleanup of city prop-
erty, Councilwoman Ann
Sexton recommended hiring
Tommy Mathis as contract
labor to oversee the proj-
ect. This was passed unani-
mously.
The Council also grant-
ed a one-time waiver for a
water bill, after an under-
ground water line had burst,
leaving the residents with a
$400 bill.
Finally, Mayor Thom-
as mentioned that he had
asked the staff of U.S. Sena-
tor Mel Martinez about
getting the state to forgive
the city's bond. "It's worth
a try and it's been done in
other places." He said he'd
also contacted U.S. Repre-
sentative Jeff Miller about,
the issue and plans to con-
tact the state about getting
prison inmates to handle
the maintenance of the city
cemetery.

2008 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT
CITY OF FREEPORT

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe
'and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your
water. Our water source is ground water from five (5) wells. The wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of
our wells. There are three (3) potential sources of contamination identified for this system with low and moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and
Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or they can. be obtained from City Hall, City of Freeport.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Greg Yancey, Water Operator, City of Freeport @ 850-880-6553! We encourage our valued customers to be informed about
their water utility. If yod want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the 2nd Tuesday and 4th Thursday @ 7:00PM at the Council Chambers at City Hall.
City of Freeport Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. .Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our
monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2008. Data obtained before January 1, 2008, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Cohtaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high.
concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring
locations for, the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or.MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I) one partly weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I)- one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pdi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

Due to an oversight, the City of Freepoft collected an insufficient number of total coliform samples in January 2008. Colifoms are bacteria that are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator
that other potentiall//y-harmful, bacteria may be present. DEP notified the City it was in violation and was required to issue public notification in February, 2008 to this effect which was done by posting at City Hall, Freeport Post

The State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) sets drinking water standards for secondary contamamints, and has determined that Odor is an aesthetic concern at certain levels of exposure.
Odor was sampled June 2008, and was found in a higher level than is allowed by the State Odor as a secondary contaminant and does not pose a health risk.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinhking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service
lines and home plumbing. City of Freeport is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours,
you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water
tested, Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hot/ine or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater//ead
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves
naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. "
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:


(A). Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides'and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. "
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater
runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health
risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can.be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of
our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments. Thank you for understanding.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy,
persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should
seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants .are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
"We at the City of Freeport work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap, said Greg Yancey, Water Operator. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart
of our community, our way of life and our children's future.

2008 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT
NORTHBAY WATER SYSTEM


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

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is
to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from one (1) well. The well draws from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of
our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.

In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our
wells. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Greg Yancey, Water Operator, City of Freeport @ 850-880-6553. We encourage our valued
customers to be informed about their wafer utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the 2nd Tuesday and the 4th Thursday of each
month @ 7:00PM in the Council Chambers at Freeport City Hall.

City of Freeport routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2008. Data obtained before January 1, 2008, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance
with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL:. The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify
distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR
compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage
2 DBPR. 2008 CONTAMINANTS TABLE


Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant
allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant
is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water
disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do
not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte td
1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to
1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially
for pregnant women and young children; Lead in drinking water is primarily from
materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of
Freeport North Bay is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot
control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. ,When your water has
been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by
flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or
cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have yo0r
water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you
can take to minimize exposure,is available from the.Safe Drinking Water Hotline or
at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers,,
lakes, stremns, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the
surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals
and, in some cases, radioactive material; and can pick up substances resulting from
the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A)Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from
sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations,
and wildlife.
(B)Inorganic contaminants, such as salts. and metals, which can be naturally-
occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil andgas production, mining, or farming.
(C)Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a, variety of sources such as
agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D)Organic chemical contaminants, including, synthetic and. volatile organic
chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum
production, abd can also come from gas stations, urban stormWater runoff,
and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil
and gas production and mining activities. :

In orderto ensure that tap water, is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations,
which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water
systems. The Food and Drug Administration (F;DA) 'regulations establish limits for
,contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public
health.

not necessarily indicate that the water, poses a health risk. More information about
contaminants and potential health -effects can be obtained by calling the
Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, it may
be necessary to make improvements in your water system. The costs of these
improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be
necessary in order to address these improvements.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water
than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as
persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have
undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune
system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from

GOLDIE BRIGANTE STILL WORKS 4aily on her north Walton County property. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell) GOLDIE at 22 years of age.




Goldie Brigante: a full life lived


By JEFFREY POWELL
Everywhere one turns
today there are stories dis-
cussing the difficulties of
living in this age of eco-
nomic downturns and global
conflicts. The nightly news
is full of gloomy predictions,
and in reality, things have
turned tough for a. large
section of the population.
However, all one has to do
is take a look at one Walton'
County citizen's life to see
that things could be much
worse.
One of Aurelija "Goldie"
Brigante's earliest memo-
ries growing up in southern
Hungary, was the sight of
American aircraft headed to
bomb Nazi Germany. Many
times she and her family "
had to head to bomb ,shel-
ters after hearing warning
sirens.
"The airplanes would
sometimes come during the
day," Goldie said. .I"g they
were very high we knew
there was no danger. We
could see the sun shimmer
off the planes."
After one bombing run
she and her family were re-
cruited to help pick up hu-
man remains caused by the
attacks. Another recollection
is that of seeing an Ameri-
can pilot burn to death in
his downed aircraft.
"I will never forget the
sight. sound and smell of
that day," Goldie said.
When Goldie was 10
years old she witnessed the
hanging of a Nazi officer in
'the nearby town. She was
on her way home from run-
ning errands for her mother
when she saw a group of
partisan soldiers marching
the German to the newly-
constructed gallows.


"The partisans were all
so dirty and the Nazi was
in a freshly-pressed uniform
with riding boots," she said
"After a moment the Nazi
was hung and died."
At the' completion of
World War II, Goldie went
to fan all- female, school in
what was then Yugoslavia.
After the war that part of
the world was still under
the control of heavy-handed


rulers and liberties were few
and far between.,
"People do not under-
stand the emotional ter-
rorism of politics," Goldie
stressed. "When authorities
gather personal information
and hold it over your head."
With this kind of stifling
authoritarian rule, Goldie
knew she had to make a bold
move to save herself from a
life of living under the black


AURELIJA GOLDIE BRIGANTE cit the tender age of 19
months.'


Mark Weeks understands the
importance of hometown policing
and how much it means to our
senior citizens and young families.
So while Mark is modernizing our
police department to keep pace with
our growing community, he will
never let the department change its
neighborly, hometown ways.

cloud of dictatorships. Dur-
ing an excursion to Munich
as part of a small group of
tourists Goldie left her hotel
room in search of a new life.
"I was' not going back
home," she said. "I knew I
needed help." ''
The year was 1956 and
Goldie found herself in a
refugee camp in Nurem-
berg, Germany. After an
extensive investigation and
trial she was given German
citizenship and a 'passport.
Soon afterwards she at-
tained a job in a local nurs-
ery. By this time she was
living in an apartment and
riding a bicycle to work.
Eventually Goldie secured
employment'with a Europe-
an Exchange Service print
shop in the Palace of Jus-
tice where the Nuremburg
trials had been held. On a
spring da'Y she and a friend
were walking near the sol-,
dier's field, where Adolf Hit-
ler had at one time held his
grand reviews, when they
were approached by. two
young American GI's who
tried to strike up a conver-
sation. The problem was she
and her friend did not speak
English and the men did not
speak German or Hungar-
.ian. Little did Goldie know
that she had just met the


love of her life.
The young GI that was so
attracted to Goldie was Pat-
sy Brigante, an Army ser-
geant. Despite the language
barrier, Patsy asked Goldie
to go see a movie with him.
"I had a date with some-
one I could not even talk to,"
Goldie said, smiling. "We
saw 'Onionhead,' starring'
Andy Griffith, and boy did
we laugh,"
After five months of dat-
ing, Patsy received orders
and the pair realized they
might be separated. Goldie
told Patsy that she planned
to go to Australia and start
a new life there. Patsy soon
put the brakes on her plan. -
"You are not going to Aus-
tralia," Patsy said. "You are
going to America if you will
be my wife." Momentarily
stunned by the proposal,
Goldie took !a closer look at
Patsy: "I saw a wonderful,
gentle man in his eyes," she
said. "Of course I said yes!"
Patsy and Goldie trav-
eled extensively throughout
the following years, even re-
turning to Europe. After two
tours in Vietnam, Patsy de-
cidedto retire from the Army
after 22 years in service.
While the duo were touring
Florida, Goldie told her hus-
band that they should go to


DeFuniak Springs so they
would be close to Eglin Air
Force Base and the Gulf of
Mexico. They soon bought
acreage in north Walton
County. Patsy then, worked
for the U.S. Postal. Service
for nearly 25 years. Unfor-
tunately, Patsy contracted
cancer and died leaving
Goldie to face another life
struggle.
"I ,am like water that
adapts to the vessel, that
was my whole life," Goldie
said reflectively. "I am like
the salmon that made it.
How do you ask the salmon
at, the end of the journey
how he made it? Its just like
walking. a hundred miles,
I -just made it one step at
a time. People today think
they are having a hard'time.
They have not seen anything
yet."
Local author/publisher
Rickie Bovay is currently co-
writing and editing Goldie's
memoir.
"I am excited about this
project, the story itself is
truly' gripping,".said Bovay.
"It shows the st rength of the
'human spirit. People today
are not accustomed to sto-
ries like this. We are unfa-
miliar with this kind of life.
A person has to ask themself
could I do this?"

Walton High School students get a grim demonstration of DUI


Story and photos by
BRUCE COLLIER
Last week, Walton High
School (WHS) students were
trooped out of doors to the
school's football stadium for
a special kind of reality the-
ater. Organized by school re-
source- officer Deputy Artie
Rodriguez. and staged by a
group .of students, law en-
forcement and fire and res-
cue personnel and a medical
evacuation helicopter, the
event was a step-by-gtep
recreation of a DUI-related
accident that left two people
dead and a third in police
custody. The assenibly also
drew members of the Wal-
ton County Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners. Walton
County Sheriff Mike Adkin-
son, and acting DeFuniak
Springs City Marshal Mark
Weeks. It was all for educa-
tional purposes, but turned


out to be based in grimnr real-
ity.
Sitting in the stands, the
students first listened to a
recorded conversation be-
tween two teenagers about
to drive home from a party.
One has been drinking, but
is confident that he is capa-
ble of driving home. ,
Next heard was a police
dispatcher report concerning
a collision between a car and
a pickup truck. Rodriguez
and his' assistants lifted a
plastic tarpaulin to reveal a
pair of vehicles, taken from
an impoundment lot. Both
were crushed together in' a
mass of twisted metal and'
shattered glass, the wake
of. a head-on collision.! The
driver of the truck sat next
to his vehicle, apparently
unhurt but plainly under
the influence. In the other
vehicle' were two motion-

less figures one trapped
in the passenger's seat, the
other (the driver) splayed
face-down on the hood. Ap-
pearances indicated she had
been hurled through the
glass by the impact of the
collision.
The police arrived, then
the EMS vehicles.. The driv-
er on the hood was deter-
mined to be dead. The pas-
senger, still alive, had to be
extracted with special cut-
ting and prying tools. The
students watched in near-
complete silence as a medi-
cal helicopter whirled in to
land nearby. The passenger
was strapped to a stretcher
and carried to the chopper,
which took off, bound for a
hospital emergency room.
A state trooper arrived
and began questioning the
truck's driver. The trooper
then administered a series
of verbal and physical so-
briety field tests. The driver
failed them all, and was last
seen taken away in hand-
cuffs, to face DUI homicide
charges.
Broadcast over the sta-
dium's public address sys-
tem was an update the
passenger succumbed 'to
his injuries. The parents of
the driver were brought in
to identify their daughter.
The mother made a posi-
tive identification, then col-
lapsed.
The recreation concluded
with a funeral procession,
complete with hearse, cas-
ket, and graveside tent. The
students were asked to ob-
serve a moment of silence
for the dead. Then a 60-ish
looking man was given a
microphone, and addressed
the assembly.


THE VOICE OF EXPE-
RIENCE: a father whose
daughter was killed by a
drunk driver addresses stu-
dents to conclude last week's
DUI prevention program at
Walton High School.


"My name is Peter Wol-
niewicz," he said, ,adding
that the students must be\
wondering .why a "fat old
man" was talking to them.
He proceeded to tell the
students that what they
had just seen was based
on a real-life incident, a
DUI-related fatality that
had claimed the life of his
daughter. Wolniewicz spoke
briefly and to the point, urg-
ing students to stay away
from drugs and alcohol, and
above all, not to drink and
drive. "We care about you,"
he said, "we want you to
make the right choices."

i6rary Books of the Week


By LEAH STRATMANN
Several books will be up
for discussion in ,this edition
of this column, all more or
less loosely grouped as mys-
itery fiction.
First of all if you enjoy
crime stories and you have.
not .read Michael Connelly,
you owe it to yourself to get
acquainted. He's 'a prolific.
writer and there are plenty
to choose from. I thought I
had read most, but just dis-
covered I missed a bunch
of the early ones featuring
Harry Bosch, so I'm going
back and reading those.
Connelly's latest com-
bines his character Mickey
Haller, first introduced in
"The Lincoln Lawyer," and
Harry Bosch, so that's a nice
surprise. In "The Brass Ver-
dict," Haller has been away
from the law for more than a
year as he pried himself off
drink and drugs. When he is
ready to cautiously dip .his
toes back into the. defense
of criminals, he is stunned
to find .out an associate of
his has been murdered and
left Haller his law practice.
Among the current clients
is a very rich Hollywood
producer accused of killing
his cheating wife and her
lover .in their Malibu Beach
home. While the gun is nev-
er found, the suspect is cov-
ered in gunshot residue; the
only piece of real evidence
the police have against him.
Meanwhile Bosch is in-
"vestigating the murder of
the attorney as Haller tries
to find a magic bullet to de-
fend his new client, who has
insisted on going to trial as'
scheduled, even knowing the
change in attorneys would
allow for a court-sanctioned
delay. Haller is a world-
weary defense attorney who
realizes most of his clients
are guilty and having a cli-
ent with unlimited funds
is very seductive to Haller.
As he plans 'his defense, he
uncovers a nasty plot to salt
the jury, evidence of corrup-,
. tion in the court.system, and
distaste for his chosen pro-
fession.
The mystery of who killed
the producer's wife and the
people behind the death of
the attorney are both good
stories. The methodical way
Connelly unfolds the drama
is always enjoyable' and
there is a nifty revelatory
twist near the end.
For a completely different


kind of mystery, Ed McBain
books could probably be
called "noir fiction" if such
a thing existed. One thing
you can always be sure of in
a McBain book is New York
will be the locale, there will
be at least one floozy, and
the writing will be spare.
In "The Gutter and The
Grave," McBain introduces
us to Matt Cordell, formerly.
a successful private eye with.
a thriving business. When
he discovers his new associ-
ate in the sack with his love-
ly wife, he almost beats the
.associate to death and loses
his license to practice. In
losing his wife, he also loses
the will to do most anything
but drink and embarks on a
downhill slide for almost a
decade.
When an old friend from
the neighborhood, Johnny
Bridges, smokes him out in
the Bowery, Cordell reluc-
tantly agrees to help him
try and figure out who is
stealing from his tailoring
shop. When the two enter
the shop, they find Bridges'
partner dead by gunshot and
Bridges' initials on the wall
in blood: Bridges swears he.
is innocent as he is arrested'
for the crime. The gun he
kept on the premises. is the
same caliber as the one used
to shoot his partner and the
gun has disappeared.
What follows is connect-
ing the dots between the
partner, his wife, the sister-
in-law, and a part-time shop
employee. Soon the wife has
also been eliminated and
the mystery deepens. This
is a short work of fiction,
but quite satisfying. One of
the things about McBain's
books is one is never sure of
,the time frame. The stories
could literally take place in
any decade and seldom is
the time defined.
Finally, a book I cannot
really recommend is the
newest by John Grisham,
"The Associate." It is remi-
niscent of the much better
"The Firm" in that the main
character, Kyle McAvoy,
is under constant surveil-
lance.
A couple months shy of
graduation from Yale's law
school, where he is the edi-
tor of the law review, McA-
voy is coerced into abandon-
ing his plans to practice law
for poor people: in App'ala-
chia, and take an offer from
the biggest law firm in the

world at $200,000 per year.
The people holding sway
over this decision claim they
can tie him to a frat-house
rape of a coed while an un-
dergraduate. They threaten
to ruin his future with a
videotape of the event if he
doesn't take the high-paying
job and start providing them
with confidential informa-
tion regarding a high-tech
lawsuit. McAvoy was pres-
ent when the incident hap-,
pened, but did not take part
in any sexual activities.
McAvoy does as ordered,
all the while trying to figure
,out how to avoid actually
supplying them with any
information. He tells only
one person a former frat
brother who did engage in
the sexual activity, but who
claims the act was consen-
sual and a repeat of a pre-
vious coupling. His friend is
on the verge of being mar-
ried and.carving out a career
for himself as an investment
banker, and neither can af-
ford the possible exposure if
the video is leaked.
Whatifollows is oddly flat,
but it is a quick read. McA-
voy's handlers are ruthless,
but whom they represent
is never clear. The two par-
ties in the lawsuit both have
had government contracts
for highly coveted weapons
and each side is claiming
ownership of the software.
Millions of dollars in -bill-
able attorney fees are being
amassed and McAvoy's em-
ployers expect insane hours
from the associates to keep
building up those bills. .
The end is really unsatis-
fying. There is no moment of
truth, no confrontation, no
nothing. It is as if Grisham
wrote this book in his sleep,
could think of no ending and
just stopped. If you are a
fan of Grisham's you might
enjoy it, .but don't buy it,
borrow it. Grisham should
not be encouraged by sales
to put .out more drivel like
this.

NATIONAL DOCTOR'S DAY
IS MARCH 30, 2009
Special thanks to all physicians for the
care and support they provide every day


PAGE 3-B


By ASHLEYAMASON
Caution: the following is
rather comical and may re-
sult in shortness of breath
or pain in the ribs and stom-
ach area. I dedicate this
piece to Dr. Howard and Dr.
Thomas, the most excellent
of doctors, thanks to whom I
can now sleep, but am walk-
ing like an injured duck.
Last week I had to un-
dergo minor emergency
surgery. Skipping over the
gritty details, let's just say
based on the pain coupled
with the location, I knew it
would not be fun. Upon talk-
ing to the anesthesiologist
and surgeon, I had only one
request. "Please do not let
me feel this."
As it was emergency sur-
gery, I could not be fully put
to sleep because I had eat-
en earlier in the day. Darn
'Sara Lee for tasting so good!
Therefore, I was induced
into a hazy twilight of which
I have no recollection, which
makes the following all the
more hilarious.
Keep in mind, my moth-
er thought it imperative to
tell the doctors' I was Miss
DeFuniak Springs right as
I drifted into never-never-
land.
Apparently, as soon as
the surgeon-the all-too-
good-looking Dr.; Thomas-
'began, I mumbled through
my grogginess, "Ow, that
hurts." For reasons un-
known to me ,at the time,
that did not impress upon
him to stop. Bound to be a
bit more persuasive, I fol-
lowed my plea by hurling
obscenities at him (language
brought on by pain and med-
ication, I assure you). Still,
he carried on with the pro-
cedure. What a time to go by
the book. Really, these doc-
tors are insufferable when
they're focused, aren't they?
Seeing I had no other op-
tion, I rose up from the oper-


ating table, leeched onto the
surgeon's arms, and tried
with all my drug-induced
might to pull him away.
Oh yes, the peak of my
persuasive power got a re-
action-a reaction known as
"more anesthesia." As soon
as it dripped into my I.V.
tube, I laid back on the ta-
ble, relaxed, eyes fluttering
under the fluorescents. Mo-
ments later, no longer feel-
ing pain, I decided I didn't
like to be out of the loop. I
wanted to see what was go-
ing on, after all it was my
party. Arms flung off the
table and too weak to lift my
head, I tried to heave my
torso upwards, declaring in
the most sincere fashion, "I
want to see." Responding to
confused stares, I elaborat-
ed, "Well, I'm interested."
The surgery ended short-

ly following my peaked curi-
osity in medicine. Of course,
all I remember is waking,
with my mother next to me,
completely unconcerned
that my drape was no longer
draping me.
How fantastic that I don't
remember a thing, and yet,
how bizarre. It made me
wonder, if we can't remem-
* ber pain, even though we
felt it, does it matter? Do
we carry the scar with the
same sorrow, or is it sepa-
rate from us? If we could not
remember the pain of a bro-
ken heart or a broken leg,
would we act differently,
less cautiously? Perhaps the
memory of the fall is worth
the damage of the scar.
On a serious note, I want
to offer my sincerest thanks
to Dr. Howard and Dr.
Thomas, who rearranged
their day, missed lunch, and
suffered assault to help one
patient. Both are shining ex-
amples. that doctors remain,
their humanity -intact, who
are dedicated not to insur-
ance companies or boards of
trustees, but to helping pa-
tients.

Exhort one another daily,
while it is called "Today,"
lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of
sin.
Hebrews 3:13
We need the church! And
it's not just the gathered
church on Sunday mornings
that we need, as important
as that is.
It's the daily fellowship
of one another that encour-
,ages, protects, counsels, ad-
monishes, and comforts us
day by day.


Listen to what the Bi-
ble says about it: We, be-
ing many, are one body in
Christ, and individually
members of one another...
Be kindly affectionate to
one another with brotherly
love, in honor giving prefer-
ence to one another...
Be of the same mind to-
ward one another...
L ove one another... Ad-
monish one another...
Bear one another's bur-
dens...
Wash one another's


feet...
Be kind to one another...
forgiving one another...
Abound. in love to one
another and to all (Romans
12:5, 10, 16, John 13:14; Ro-
mans 15:14; Galatians 6:2;
John 13:34; Ephesians 4:32;
1 Thessalonians 3:12).
The old Puritan, George
Swinnock, said, "Satan
watches for those vessels
that sail without a convoy."
Find someone today who
needs a little of the "one an-
other" you can provide and


CHARLES SATTERWHITE
"be" the church for that per-
son.
Remember, we are to be
ministers of grace to each
other.

Walton County Bridge


Authority in future?


By DOTTY NIST
Finding "alarm" in the
possibility for a U.S. 331 toll
bridge without local control,
Walton County commission-
ers voted on March 24 to
direct staff to draw up some
resolutions regarding the
bay bridge.
Representatives of the
Northwest Florida Trans-
portation Corridor Author-
ity (NFTCA) had recently
met with individual com-
missioners to discuss the
recent unsolicited proposal
to the NFTCA by a private
company interested in wid-
ening a section of U.S. 331
which would include the
bridge spanning the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay. Funding
was specified to come from
either stimulus funds or
"tolling." The NFTCA had
stated that the proposal
would be advertised for a
60-day period prior to their
entertaining a decision on
the proposal or on other
competitive proposals that
might have come forward.
The bridge lies on one of
the county's most important
routes, U.S. 331, the only
entrance and exit roadway
from the beach area to the


north.
County Commission
Chair Sara Comander com-
mented at the March 24
Walton County Board. of
County : Commissioners
(BCC) meeting that her dis-
cussion with: the corridor
- authority representatives
had raised more questions
for her than before.
"I am still confused about
the rush," she said regard-
ing the 60-day period. Co-
mander said she found her-
self, "more confused than
before," particularly with
regard to the possibility of
the bridge coming under the
control of a private compa-
ny.
Comander said she be-
lieved residents expect the
BCC to be in control of deci-
sions on the bridge. She saw,
the potential for this to not
be the case under the sce-
nario now developing.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon expressed
complete agreement that,
the 60-day public comment
period for the proposal was
far too short for so impor-
tant a decision and too short
to allow for competitive pro-
posals.
"We obviously believe in


the importance of the bridge
widening," he said. "Mak-
ing sure we have some op-
tions to look at is...L think
extremely important.
"I just think it's impor-
tant that we be in charge of
our own destiny," Comander
commented.
She stepped down as
chair to sponsor a series of
motions to be drafted from
the BCC to the Florida Leg-
islature, the first being that
the requirement for the 60-
day public comment period
for proposals of this .nature
to the. NFTCA be extended
to six months. The second
was to ask the legislature
not to support the tolling
of the U.S 331 bridge. The
third was to seek support
for the creation of a locally-
controlled bridge authority
for the bridge.
County Attorney Mike
Burke told the commissio'n-
ers that, if they desire such
an authority, the quickest
way would be to create the
bridge authority as a special
district. He added that they
should engage legislators in
this task:
Commanders motions to
draw up the resolutions car-
ried by unanimous vote.

In a brief meeting, Mar.
17, it was standing room
only as the Walton County
School Board officially vot-
ed to change Walton High
School, South Walton High
School and Freeport High
School to a seven -period
schedule next year.
Jenny Dargavell, par-
ent of South Walton High
School student, addressed
the board in favor of a sev-
en-period day. Regarding a
four-block schedule, she said
"There's no good reason to
keep it." Dargavell brought
research to the board, as
well as comparisons with
Okaloosa County, showing a
seven-period day better pre-
pares students for college.
Board member Mark Davis
noted that for every study
proving a 4seven-period day
is better, just as many state
otherwise. Dargavell ended
saying, regardless of a bud-
get issue, "the real cost is to
our kids.";

By DOTTY NIST ;
"Any tourist or person,
can go down there and see
the dunes as they used to
be," said Bill Peake, a regu-I
lar south Walton County
winter visitor, in reference
to Deer Lake State Park.
Enthusiasm about this
1900-plus-acre beachfront
park, located on CR-30A
just west of WaterSound,
ran strong at -a March 18
meeting called. to discuss
ways volunteers could sup-
port the needs of the park.
South Walton County resi-
dent Beverly Kraska served
as organizer for the meet-


ing.
The state Division of Rec-
reation and Parks has pro-
posed temporarily closing
Deer Lake State Park, along
with 18 other state parks,
as a cost saving measure,
in view of the state budget
shortfall. On Feb. 20, Gov.
Charlie Crist recommended
that none of the state parks
bo closed down. However,
the final decision on the
matter will be that of the
Florida Legislature during
the current session ending
May 1. If the decision were
to close the 19 parks, this
would take effect July 1.


The Walton County Board of
County Commissioners have
asked their staff to research
the possibility of the county
operating Deer Lake State
Park in the event there is a
decision to close the park.
Over 30 people attended
the March 18 meeting, fill-
ing the Seagrove Fire Sta-
tion meeting room to over-
flow.

was a favorite retreat for a
number of attendees. One

the board. At the bare mini-
mum, she said, "we need a

Discussion circled about
different schools having the
scheduling of their choice,
but conflict with the Walton

class offerings ended that
discussion.
Supervisor of Instruction
and Curriculum Marsha
Pugh informed the board
changing to a seven-period
day would result in a recur-
ring $116,000 net savings
on text books.
After hearing comments
on both side of the issue, the
board regretfully stated it
came down to a budget is-
sue. The motion to change
to a seven-period day passed
3-2, with Mark Davis and
Sharon Roberts opposing.
The board then approved
plans for Emerald Coast
Middle School. It is tenta-
tively scheduled to be com-
pleted in late 2011, and will
reduce over-crowding and
prepare for the continued
growth Walton County en-
'joys even in the face of eco-

Mosquito board meets


without any biting


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


By LEAH STRATMANN
By standards previously
set in meetings of the South
Walton Mosquito Control
District (SWMCD), the
monthly meeting was more
or less routine with none
of the sniping and biting
which has often character-
ized meetings in the past
few months.
As the board members
prepared to go to Tallahas-
see to meet with representa-
tives, one of the subjects un-
der discussion was a move
afoot to move some water
management areas into
mosquito control districts.
SWMCD is against this pro-
posal because it could prove
to be catastrophic cost-wise
to the district, according to
chairman John Magee. "It
would necessitate levying
higher taxes. If a ditch be-
comes contaminated from
means other than mosqui-
toes and the management is
moved from water manage-
ment to mosquito control,
a the mosquito district would
bear the expense of cleaning
it up," Magee said.
The board lamented the
overall perception of the
public that all mosquito
control does is roam up and
down *the roads spraying
for mosquitoes, 'when actu-
ally most efforts are aimed
at preventing the birth of


mosquitoes through lar-
vacides and other measures.
Spraying is always the last
resort.
Board attorney Lori By-
tell reported both sides of
the Gary D'Andrea lawsuit
have made written submis-
sion to the court regarding
D'Andrea's appeal and each
side of the issue has request-
ed permission to make oral
arguments. Bytell said oral
arguments may or may not
be granted, but either way
the case should be decided
.within 45 to 90 days.
The topic of a job perfor-
mance evaluation for di-
rector Stephen Sickerman
came up. Board member Jim
Crawford asked why the di-
rector was given a raise in
front of an evaluation be-
ing completed. Crawford
refused to participate in the
evaluation process, claiming
that to do so made the board
look ridiculous since a raise
had already been given.
New board member Bob
Hudson said'he could not
participate in an evaluation
either because he has only
just joined the board, but
he pointed out the employee
handbook for the district re-
quires a formal evaluation
for every employee on an
annual basis.
The district had previous-
ly issued request for propos-

bank counter.


als for an engineering firm
to consult with the district
on issues as they come up.
Three engineering firms
sent in quotes showing the
hourly rate of each. Hudson
suggested an interview be
conducted with the three
firms at the next meeting.
Magee said he thought it
would be a good idea to
draft a scenario of what the
district might need from
the engineers and allow the
firms to address those needs
at the interview. "We don't
have this kind: of money
budgeted and one situation
could be prohibitive. I don't
want to be giving anyone a
blank check and we should
inquire about a retainer
program."
Hudson said, "If we don't
have some kind of arrange-
ment, we might have trou-
ble getting the consultation
when we need it."
It was decided to contact
the firms and outline what
would be needed for the in-
terview process as well as
inquire about the possibility
of engaging a firm on a re-
tainer basis.
In a final budgetary mat-
ter, Magee made a motion
to freeze all pay raises un-
til a complete budget review
could be completed. The mo-
tion passed by a two-to-one
vote, with Crawford voting
no.


ROBBERY SUSPECT
Thomas Joseph Banno, now
in custody.


SunTrust robbery



suspect captuIred


On March 18 at around
10:15 a.m. a white male
wearing khaki shorts and a
tan shirt and dark ball cap
'entered the Watercolor loca-
tion of SunTrust Bank and
robbed a teller. The robber
then left on foot. Investiga-
tors and deputies responded
to the scene and set up a pe-
irimeter in hopes of contain-
ing the suspect. The Walton
County Sheriffs Office he-
licopter and the K-9 team
from Okaloosa Sheriffs Of-
fice also responded.
At approximately 3 p.m.
that same day investigators
with the Walton County
Sheriffs Office were advised


that Panama City Police
had in custody Thomas Jo-
seph Banno, 40, of Panama
City Beach. Banno was,
taken into custody under an'
outstanding warrant from
Walton County for a worth-
less. check. Investigators
responded to Panama City
and met with Panama City
Police officers. The investi-
gation revealed that Banno
and his girlfriend had gorie
to the Watercolor Publix
parking lot this morning
where he dropped her off at
the Publix store. He then
drove the vehicle to the rear
of the Publix store and hid it.
He walked across the park-


ing lot and entered the bank
where he demanded money.
It was determined that the
demand note left by Banno
was written on the back of
a CVS receipt. Information
gleaned from the CVS re-
ceipt led to the identity of
Banno and eventually to his
arrest. Recovered from Ban-
no were the hat, shirt, and
shorts worn during the com-
mission of the robbery along
with a large sum of cash.
Banno was returned to
Walton County under the
misdemeanor worthless
check warrant and was sub-
sequently charged with felo-
ny bank robbery.


State to seek death penalty


in south Walton killings


On March 18 a Walton
County grand jury returned
an indictment against Dan-
ny Roy Baker on two counts
of first-degree premeditat-
ed murder with a firearm,
three counts of attempted
first-degree premeditated
murder with a firearm, and
one count of shooting at, into
or within a building.


The two murder counts
are for the shooting deaths of
Racine Libia Balbontin Ar-
gandona and Nicholas Pablo
Corp Torres. The three at-
tempted murder counts are
for attempts on the lives of
Sebastian Mauricio Arizaga
Suarez, Francisco Javier
Cofre Fernandez, and Da-
vid Alonso Andrews Bilbao

The state has announced
that it will seek the death

viction on the two murder

In the interest of full dis-
closure,, what I'm about to
say is biased.. That said it
doesn't make the .content
any less true so bear with
me.
Just about a month ago,
the Red Bay Grocery opened
on a little spit of land smack
in the middle of the SR-81
between Ponce de Leon and
Bruce. There had been small
grocery stores there before.
In fact, one was there when
I moved to Red Bay, but it
is nothing like the entity
that has taken its place.
The former was dingy. The
employees looked dingy,
the shelves were dusty and
I would not, under.any cir-
cumstances, have eaten .the
food prepared there based
mostly on the fact the food
preparers did not look clean
and neither did the prepara-
tion area. For me, it was a
place to grab a newspaper
or an emergency light bulb,
nothing more. Furthermore,
the prices were exorbitant,
they were charging al-
most five dollars for a pack
of smokes and this was way
before all the new cigarette
taxes recently levied were in
place.
This new grocery, a co-
operative owned by Charles
Morgan and the citizens
of Red Bay, is a new ani-
mal altogether. Brightly lit
with dust-free shelves and a
whole new look, it is a gath-
ering spot for the small citi-
zenry of Red Bay and a place
to get a good fresh meal for
a good price. Prices on goods
are consistent with prices
elsewhere. A 20-o.ufce bot-
tle of Coke is $1.39 at Wal-
greens and the same at, the
Red Bay Grocery, which
is standard markup and a
hallmark of the way this
business will be run.
So far I've had two lunch-
es there, both of which were
priced for today's economy,
but each providing more
than enough to fill. For less.
than six bucks, I got two
large pieces of expertly-fried
chicken, two small servings
of side dishes, a biscuit and
a cold drink. I was stuffed,
as were the four people
I had invited to join me.
Fried chicken that neither
feels greasy in the hand or
in the mouth is a real taste
treat. The frying grease has
to be so hot the scald on the.
skin is perfect to provide
the crunch and the moist
meat underneath the skin.
My mouth is watering just
thinking about it, but I've
already missed out for to-
day.
Chicken and burgers are
available every day and
each day there is a blue-
plate special. Sometimes it
is catfish, sometimes pork
chops. It changes. The side
dishes are the usual assort-
ment: potato salad, baked
beans, macaroni salad, cole-
slaw, etc. Each is made fresh
daily and delivers the taste
so often lacking in prepared
side dishes.
In the country, the big
meal at noon is called din-
ner and is enough so that
the evening meal, known as


supper, can be quite light.
My evening meal on the day
I ate the chicken was crack-
ers and fruit and I didn't
eat until well after seven
o'clock and only then be-
cause I didn't want to wake
up hungry in the middle of
the night.
The second time I stopped
in, it was well after the
lunch hour, but I had been
tied up earlier. They serve

SHOOTING THE BREEZE

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 26,2009 PAGE 3-C


Oversight commission identifies concerns with NFTCA


By DOTTY NIST
While finding that the
Northwest. Florida Trans-
portation Corridor Author-
ity (NFTCA) is for the most
part "conducting its business
in accordance with require-
ments of public meetings,
open records, and ethics," a
state oversight commission
.recently identified a num-
ber of concerns in connec-
tion with the operation of
the NFTCA.
Created in 2005 by the
Florida Legislature, the
NFTCA is an agency of the
state encompassing eight
counties and consisting of
eight governor-appointed
voting, members plus an ex-
officio, non-voting member,
the Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) secre-
tary. The NFTCA is tasked
with improving mobility on
the U.S.. 98 corridor and re-
lated duties with regard to
that corridor. The agency
is authorized to construct
roads and other transporta-'
tion facilities, any of which'
may be tolled.
'Mandated with oversight
of the NFTCA, along with
the 14, other transportation
authorities created, under
chapters 343 and '348 of.
Florida Statutes, on March
20, the Florida Transpor-
tation Commission (FTC)
transmitted to, Gov. Charlie
Crist its "Monitoring and
Oversight, FY 2008 Report"


'By BRUCE 'COLLIER

Tony Gilroy would prob-
ably have had a tougher
time directing "Duplicity"
had he not also been the
screenwriter. The '125-min-
ute film is very much in the
romantic/caper genre. Its
story is plotted with more
twists than a Cirque du So-
leil marathon. It takes con-
centration, mainly because
of the manner in which the
story is told a series of
flashbacks, flash-forwards,
and flash-sideways. The di-
rector/writer wraps it up at
the end, but only at the end.
By then, it's almost too late.
"Duplicity", draws con-
siderable warmth from its
stars Julia Roberts and,
Clive Owen. Roberts plays
CIA agent Claire Stenwick,
while Owen is Ray Koval,
an operative with MI6 (Brit-
ish Intelligence). They meet
iriit iall in Dubai andashare
a brief fling. Ray' awakens
in his hotel room, drugged,
alone, and deprived of a
trove of hard-earned intel-
ligence secrets. Years later,
their paths cross again, only
both are now private" indus-
trial espionage consultants
for international corpora-
tions.

"stunning."
Peake called the park
"the finest representation of'
our dunes."
Dale Shingler, manager
for Deer Lake State Park
and Grayton Beach State
Park, called the view of the
park's natural, dune system
from the park's long board-
walk "really spectacular."
He added that the Deer Lake
coastal dune lake within the
park boundaries has the
least human impact of any
of south Walton County's
globally-rare dune lakes.
Shingler had no informa-
tion to provide on the pos-
sible closure of the park.
"We can't tell you, but we're
moving forward as if it's go-
ing to be open for the next
gazillion years," he told the
group.
Shingler said the hand-
icapped-accessible board-
walk now under construc-
tion- at Deer Lake State
Park is,50-percent complete.
Completion is anticipated
for the end of April.
Other than boardwalks, a
small parking area, a picnic
shelter, and a simple porto-


on these transportation au-
thorities.
The report on the NFTCA
that was part of this docu-
ment noted that the agency
had followed statutory re-
quirements to meet at least
quarterly at alternate loca-
tions, and to adopt a Cor-
ridor Master Plan and plan
update within prescribed
timelines. However, the re-
port stated that the NFTCA
,did not comply with statu-
tory requirements to pres-
ent the July1l, 2008, master
plan update "to the govern-
ing bodies of the counties
within- the corridor and
legislative delegation mem-
bers." Such a presentation,
the FTC stated, had been
required within 90 days of
the adoption.
With regard to ethics,
the oversight commission
observed that the NFTCA
had in January 2008 ad-
opted a resolution calling
for all board members and
employees to follow Florida
Statutes requirements for
ethical conduct, and that no
ethical violations or investi-
gations had 'been reported
by the board or noted in
NFTCA meeting minutes.
The commission did, how-*
ever, find that an incident
occurring in 2008 did raise
questions on the agency's
conduct. This was in connec-
tion with alegally-mandated
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-


Ray's desire for payback
gets some satisfaction, but
his distaste' for Claire is
strongly tempered with at-
traction. It's not just physi-
cal; Ray is turned on by
Claire's mind, her devious
nature and love, of intrigue.
She reciprocates, reluctantly
at first, then wholehearted-
ly. For all'that, the relation-
ship remains tempestuous,
with scenes of passion punc-
tuated by scenes of angry
confrontation. What. finally
pulls them together is the
prospect of making the score
of a lifetime. Naturally, it
involves betrayal.
Their two employers -.
corporate manufacturers of
shampoos and beauty prod-.
ucts are going head-to-
head, each trying to crush
the'other. One is helmed by
Howard Tully .(Tom Wilkin-
son), the other by Richard
Garsik (Paul Giamatti).
Claire works for Tully and
Ray for Garsik. Tully dis-
tributes a private memo an-
nouncing that his company
is about to release the most
innovative product in its
history, and is asking for a
'cloak of absolute security.
Claire and Ray plot to se-
cure the product's formula

let-type toilet, there is noth-
ing in the way of facilities at
Deer Lake State Park. Shin-
gler said future goals will be
better parking, a real rest-
room, and the addition of a,
picnic pavilion to the south
of the current parking area,
along with additional hik-
ing trails. Other than that,
plans are for the property to
remain natural.
Park Services Specialist
Patrick Hartsfield explained
the various types of volun-
teers who assist with state
parks, one type being camp
hosts who receive free stays
in exchange for services.
Another type of volun-
teers, he said, are the volun-
teer groups. Group members
work from one to four days a
week at a variety of tasks,
among them cleaning, trash
pick-up, work on nature
walks and guided walks,,
equipment maintenance,
building maintenance,
painting and washing of
buildings, folding brochures,
answering phones, collect-
ing park fees, taking photo-
graphs, building kiosks, and
removal of invasive or exotic


vice (USFWS) public hear-
ing on a proposed critical
habitat designation for the
Reticulated Flatwood Sala-
mander, a species already
federally listed as threat-
ened. The USFWS had/has
been part of a working group
attempting to formulate an
alignment solution to poten-
tial impacts on the survival
of this salamander species
associated with the Eglin
Bypass. This is a new four-
lane limited-access highway
proposed by the NFTCA to
extend from SR-87 to U.S.
331. A $3 million study is
now underway in connec-
tion with this proposal.
According to the report,
"NFTCA chose to politi-
cize this issue at the public
meeting held by the US-
FWS. A flyer, which carried
the NFTCA logo, character-
ized the USFWS meeting as
being a public meeting on
the Bypass Road, citing that
the proposed legislation by
USFWS was an attempt to
block construction of the
road.,
"It was also noted that a
staff member of the NFT-
CA's consulting firm,,HDR,
Inc., was, at the USFWS
meeting handing out these
flyers," the report contin-
ued.
.The FTC report observed
that these actions by the
NFTCA could be "construed"
as lobbying, and that the


multi-millions, and retire to
a life of ease together. This
involves a meticulous game
of double-agentry and, well,
duplicity.
While this story is un-
rolling, we are treated to a
series of temporal flip-flops,
detailing past encounters
between Claire and Ray in
sexy locations like Rome, the
Caribbean 'and Miami. Each
time, a piece is added to
the puzzle of their relation-
ship. Following it requires
concentration, and I kept
wondering if I had missed
some vital point,, because'
it refused to fit. Turns out
I hadn't, and all my ques-
tions were answered in the
last five minutes of the film.
I believe this is what Gilroy
intended, but he takes a
gamble on losing the audi-
ence's interest by making
them wait so long.
The appeal of intrigue-
films is that when they re-
veal their secrets, they show
you that everything you
needed to know was right
before your eyes all along.
"Duplicity" doesn't quite
manage that. The end is yet
another twist, maybe one
too many to be completely
satisfying in the way that,
say, "Qcean's 11" was satis-


plants.
Citizen support organiza-
tions may also be created for
park, Hartsfield explained.
Usually they are formed as
nonprofits, and they raise
money for a park, among
other tasks, he said.
"We welcome almost any-
thing," Shingler commented.
He envisioned volunteers
monitoring sea turtles or
birds, building or maintain-
ing trails,
Shingler passed out vol-
unteer forms asking for in-
formation on individuals'
experience and interests.
He also offered assistance in
setting up a citizen support
organization for Deer Lake
State Park if sufficient in-
terest surfaced in the com-
munity. Anyone interested
in participating in such an


use of DOT funds for such
activities could represent a
statutory violation.
It was recommended by
the commission that the
NFTCA "conduct a thorough
review of Florida Statutes,
Sunshine Laws and Ethics
Codes in light of these activ-
ities and refrain from either
conducting or giving the ap-
pearance of conducting any
political or lobbying activi-
ties."
The report also alleges
a failure by the NFTCA to
fully meet disclosure re-
quirements established by
the commission with.regard
to financial and accounting
statements. In the agency's
defense, it is noted that the
NFTCA lacks operational
funding for the preparation
of an independent audit or
annual financial report. The
commission therefore directs
the NFTCA to designate a
board officer to file annual
financial report information
through an on-line mecha-
nism.
The report states that
the NFTCA board has not
adopted a formal 'budget,
and the commission recom-
mends in the report that the
agency meet Florida Stat-
utes' requirements by doing
so.
The report also references
public, record and open meet-
ing problems, observing one
instance of a NFTCA meet-


fying.
What made the movie
worth watching or at least
kept me from wanting a re-
fund of my time and money
was the chemistry of Rob-
erts and Owen. Roberts is
41 and Owen 46, so their
charm can hardly be called
youthful. Rather, it's their
self-assurance and' orldli-
ness thatkuakes. thdm fun
to wagh. Owen has rugged,
early 'Sean Connery looks
and a fine grasp of sarcastic
.British outrage. Roberts has
a gift for weary, deadpan re-,
actions. She's an 'excellent
straightman (or woman),
always the toughest job in
any comedy duo. Wilkinson
and Giamatti automati-
cally improve any movie in
which they appear, and the
supporting cast gets to have
as much fun as any of the
leads.
."Duplicity" might take
several viewings to com-
pletely grasp. I'll probably
rent it when it's available,
just to see if I can catch it all
this time. Overall, it's worth
a look. Julia Roberts may
be coming into her own as
a grown-ups' screen come-
dian, and there can never be
too many of them.

ing location having being
changed with less than two
days' notice, and with that
meeting being subsequently
cancelled with only hours'
notice to the public on the
agency's Web site.
"NFTCA should refrain
from last minute changes
in venue except in cases of
unusual circumstances and
should develop a more effec-
tive means of notifying the
public of changes in location
or cancellation of meetings,"
the commission directed.
The agency was also di-
rected, in the interest of
countering "public skepti-
cism" about NFTCA objec-
tives, to use "technology to
broadcast updated informa-
tion, publish updated Mas-
ter Plans on its website,
and generally provide more
information to the public at-
large.
"The NFTCA could also
post public comments re-


ceived as an appendix to its
Master Plan rather than re-
quiring the public to request
copies of public comments,"
the commission suggested.
The report further re-
quests that the NFTCA re-
view "all pertinent govern-
ing statutes...to insure that
it is operating not only with-
in the law but also within
the spirit of the law.
"Greater compliance with
both the letter and spirit of
the law and a more open
public communication pro-
cess can potentially diffuse
some of the heated pubic
discourse that has been oc-
curring," the report con-
cludes.
The FTC report is avail-
able for viewing in its en-
tirety on the commission's
Web site, www.ftc.state.
fl.us. Information on the
NFTCA, including a meet-
ing schedule, is available at

Fatal accident in Santa

Rosa County involves

Walton County driver


A second motorist, in-
jured in a March 9 accident
in Santa Rosa County, has
died of injuries sustained
in that accident. A Walton
County man received minor
injuries in that accident.
In the original report,
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) investigator Cpl.
Chris Nussbaumer reported
that a vehicle was traveling
north on County Highway
191. In that vehicle were
the driver, Louis J. Nonicek,
74, and passenger Carol A.
Konicek, 71, both of Silver
Lake, WI. A second vehicle
was traveling west on State
Road 4, its driver and sole
occupant Charles L. Owens,
66, of Santa Rosa Beach. A
third vehicle, unoccupied,
was pai.ed in the poking,
lot of R'uth's Store on-'ltt
Road 4.
Konicek apparently failed
to stop at a stop sign at the
intersection of State Road 4,
and traveled into the path of
Owens' vehicle, striking its
right side. Konicek's vehicle
continued into the parking
lot, striking the third ve-
hicle. Owens' vehicle was

propelled into a culvert and
came to rest in a ditch.
Carol A. Konicek was pro-
nounced dead on the scene.
Louis J. Konicek was trans-
ported to Sacred Heart Hos-
pital in critical condition.
Owens was not seriously in-
jured, and declined medical
treatment on the scene.
. In an updated report
dated March 23, Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP) in-
vestigator Cpl. Chris Nuss-
baumer stated that Louis J,
Konicek died on his injuries
on March 22.
All involved were wearing
seatbelts, and alcohol was
not a factor. The accident re-
mains under investigation.

Welcome


to


fMiami!

By ASHLEY AMASON

Miami boasts hustle
and bustle which rivals
that of Manhattan.
Nightclubs, restau-
rants, and an endless
string of events keep
south Floridians out
'til the break of dawn...
when the sun comes up
to the beach, of course.
While most of the
country huddled for
warmth under blan-
kets and near heaters,
Miami provided its own
heat, soaring to 80-de-'
gree temperatures last
weekend.
Music blaring from
outdoor cafes set the
city a-buzz. People
of all races and ages
danced the samba in
the streets like. a scene
from Slumdog Million-


THE CORAL HOUSE, just off Washington Avenue, represents the early 20th century architecture in Miami. It is now
being refurbished as a restaurant and will open this spring.


aire. The sunshine and
smiles, the music and
attitude sparks an elec-
tricity in the air which


makes Miami feel more
alive than any other
city.. ,
Hundreds crowd the
famous South Beach to
soak up rays and sights
of the all too perfect tan,
bodies sprawled across
white sands. Forget
Hollywood, Miami is
home to the world's


most beautiful people.
On Espanola Way,
Spanish and Italian
sidewalk cafe's are dot-
ted with red and white
checkered tablecloths
and twinkling lights.
Hostesges who bare-
ly speak English and
waiters who serenade
you in Italian, kiss your


hand and lavish com-
pliments upon you in
a language so lyrical it
doesn't matter that you
cannot understand.
No wonder Will
Smith sings about it
and& The Golden Girls
moved there. It's as if
the whole city shouts
"Welcome to Miami!"


WITH TEMPERAT&RES reaching the 80s in early March, hundreds soaked up the sun
on the world-famous South Beach.


























THE CAVALIER is just one architectural example of Miami's Art Deco District.

ESPANOLA WAY, dotted with sidewalk cafes and di-
verse culture leave one with the feeling of being in'Tuscany
