Task



Force


meets

By BEN GRAFTON
On April 15 in the Free-
port Community Center,
the newly-activated Walton
County Vision Task Force
chaired by Commissioner
Sara Comander held its sec-
ond meeting. Its mission is to
produce a vision of what its
residents would like Walton
County to develop into over
the next 30 years. In open-
ing remarks, Comander said
that the task .force's first
meeting was successful and
that she hoped everyone in
the county, would have the
opportunity to provide in-
put at meetings to be held
over the next six to eight
months.
Comander then intro-
duced Dr. David Goetsch,
who is very experienced in
the visioningg process and
who will serve as facilitator
for the.task force. He said
today's, job was to "...plan
the plan."
Goetsch said that the first
thing to be done 'was to de-
velop a list of sections (sub-
jects) to be discussed at a
series of town hall meetings
which would be scheduled

minium projects that, taken
together, originally project-
ed 755 residential units.
Other data in the report
shows that most develop-
ment in 2008 was in the
commercial category. New
development orders issued
fell from a high of 34 in 2006
to seven in 2008. Annexa-
tions to the, City included
318 acres along SR-20 and
West Bay Loop Road.
Henninger said that
many of the developers are


still interested in going
ahead with their projects
but in the present economic
climate they are unable to
get financing to proceed.
Henninger also reported
that County Commissioner
Sara Comander has board
approval to proceed with a
Walton County vision proj-
ect. A meeting of a commit-
tee to pursue this work will
be held in Freeport at 9 a.m.
.on April 15.
The Council approved


sending Henninger to a
state planners' training ses-
sion later in the year.
Answering Councilman
Mark Martin's question:
Henninger confirmed that
annexation requests are still
being accepted by the City.
Martin said that he hopes to
see as much publicity as pos-
sible to promote the county
visioning project.
Fire Chief Ben Greenslait
reported that the Easter Egg
Hunt was a success; better


than last year, and that an
estimated 1,800 children
participated.
Greenslait said that re-
cent heavy rains have slowed
progress on the fire hydrant
maintenance program but
that an additional 25 to 30
hydrants have been serviced
since the last report.

APRIL 19-25 is National Volunteer Week and Walton
County will be honoring its volunteers on April 23 at the
Life Enrichment Senior Center.


By ALICIA LEONARD
Many believe that how
much one makes or what
car one drives is the mea-
sure of success but, Benja-
min Franklin believed that
improving the lives of his
fellow man was the truest
measure of success. Under
that ideal, volunteers are
some of the most successful
people one can know.
Volunteers throughout
Walton County will gather
to celebrate and be cele-
brated at Volunteer Recog-
nition Day. Agencies, orga-
nizations and civic groups
will gather with the public
to recognize volunteers for


their dedication and com-
mitment to helping others
and making Walton County
a better place to live.
This event will be held
at the Life Enrichment Se-
nior Center, located at 312
College Ave., on April 23
from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. All
citizens are encouraged to
attend and to show their
appreciation for those who
dedicate themselves to vol-
unteerism. The organizers,
Communities For a Lifetime
(CFL) Advisory Committee
of Walton County, are hop-
ing it will become an annual
county-wide event. Ham-
burgers and hot-dogs are


on the menu and there'll be
'entertainment from North
West Florida State College
(NWFSC) Show Choir.
One of Walton's own busi-
est volunteers, J.B. Hillard,
will have to miss the event.
Hillard has been selected
'to receive the 2009 Golden
Choice Volunteer Award
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Elders Affairs as one
who "inspires by example."

for the award because, "his

Want to learn how you can save some big money just

by using your energy more efficiently? The Energy
Experts at Gulf Power can show you how, and it's


easier than you might think.


You can start by giving your water heater a break.
The lower you set it, the lower your costs will
Sbe. In most cases, 1200 should

be fine. If you have a large family

__ ( and a smaller water heater, or if
-.----' your dishwasher doesn't have

a booster heater, you may need to set it higher, but

no higher than 140.


You can also set your

home thermostat to be '

more efficient, depending '

on the season. In the ------

warmer months, set it to 780. And when it's cold out,


set it to 680. Just a few degrees in either direction can
significantly increase your energy usage.


There are lots of electronics around your house that use

energy even when they are turned off. Things like big


screen TVs, computers and

cell phone chargers should,

all be .unplugged from the
wall when you're not using


them. Or if they're plugged into a power strip, simply

turn it off. That's just like unplugging them. You'll be

amazed at what a difference it can make on your

power bill just by changing a few little things. Because

a little change will do us good.

DCT in Walton County

celebrates 50 golden years


This school year marks
the 50th year of DCT (Di-
versified Cooperative Train-
ing) in the Walton County
Schools. Superintendent of
Schools Grey Wilson began
the program in the 1958-
59 school year to provide
employemnt expeirence for
juniors and seniors at Wal-
ton High School. Principal
Burvin Pugh selected 20
very capable students to
participate in the program
the first year, and a coor-
dinator-teacher was hired.
Hilda (Rivenbark) Coursey'
was that coordinator. She
came to Walton County af-
ter one year of experience in
Broward County, fell in love
with the county (and a hus-
band), and is still here by
.choice.
An advisory committee
was selected, with the as-
sistance of the superinten-
dent and principal, and the
search for 20. jobs began.
The very first business ap-
proached was RhodesJewel-
ers on 9th Street, and Clyde
Rhodes quickly became the
very first DCT employer in
Walton County. With the
assistance of the advisory
committee, other businesses
quickly agreed to give the
program a try, By the open-
ing of the school year, there
were job placements for all


20 students. Students spent
the first four periods of the
day in classes at school, and
then reported to work for the
rest of the day. They were
paid the fabulous sum of 50
cents per hour, and received
a grade each six weeks, as
well as two credits for work
experience.
Those students, as well
as hundreds. of others who
followed for the next 49
years, will quickly say that
DCT was one of the most
valuable and life-changing
experiences in their educa-
tion. Employers also like.
the program because stu-
dents receive- training for
their specific job assignment
during the morning classes,
and have the opportunity to
'apply those skills in the af-
ternoon. Receiving a.regular
grade based on job perfor-
mance also encourages the
development of good work
habits and attitudes. Many
students remained in their
same career area through-
out their years of employ-
ment, while others used
the experience to move on
to other areas. Many con-
tinued on with higher edu-
cation and found the DCT
experience to be a valuable
part of life, with skills in
budgeting money and time,
finding part-time employ-


ment, interview skills, and
speaking skills.
There are currently DCT
Programs at Freeport,
Paxton, and Walton High
Schools. In the current
job market, DCT students
have a definite advantage
when they graduate from
high school with a year of
employment experience al-
ready complete.
A big celebration of 50
years is planned for Thurs-
day, April 30 at 6:30 p.m.
at Walton Middle School
Cafeteria. This is a pot-luck
covered dish dinner, and all
current and past DCT stu-
dents and their families, all
current and past employers
of DCT students, all past
advisory board members,
and current and past school
superintendents and school
board members are invited
and encouraged to bring a
covered dish and join in this
special occasion. Budget
,constraints make it impos-
sible to mail written invita-
tions to each individual, but
all who were ever associated
with the DCT program at
any of the three schools, are
invited. No reservations are
required. Dress is casual.
For more information,
call (850)830-5051, or con-
tact a coordinator.


LAWMEN AT PRESS CONFERENCE, l-r, are Valparaiso Police Chief Joseph Hart,

Attorney William Eddins, and U.S. Marshal (Northern District of Florida) Public Affairs
Officer Dominic Guadagnoli. (Photo by Bruce Collier)

injuries. According to the
marshals at the scene, the
truck that McCoy had es-
caped in was found there
but it appeared that he had
been spray painting it, using
a flat black paint, to change
its appearance. No one else
was reportedly injured, nor
was anyone with McCoy at
the time he was apprehend-
ed.
Several days after the
shooting in DeFuniak
Springs (April 10), the U.S.
Marshal's Regional Fugitive
Task Force had' received a
request from WCSO to aid
in McCoy's capture. They
have been working with
them and investigators as
well as investigators from
many of the surrounding
jurisdictions including from
the FDLE.
A press conference was
held at the Walton County
Sheriffs Office on Tuesday'
April 21. Attending were
DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Mark Weeks, Wal-


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


ton County Sheriff Mike
Adkinson, Valparaiso Chief
of Police Joseph Hart, U.S.
Marshal's public affairs of-
ficer Dominic Guadagnoli,
and State Attorney William
Eddins.
None of the officials at the
conference would comment
on specifics of the man-
hunt, though Adkinson and
Weeks stated that there had
been "hundreds" of leads
furnished by the public. Ad-
kinson also noted that secu-
rity at Brown's funeral had
been high, in case any other
member of Brown's family
was in danger.
Asked: whether McCoy
has been implicated in any
other offenses committed in
the interim between April
10 and April 21, none of the
officials would comment.
Eddins said that his office
would be reviewing the case
pending seeking an indict-
ment, and though he could
not confirm. whether the
state will seek the death


penalty, he said the factor of
"cold, calculated premedita-
tion" would be considered in
making that decision. That
is a statutory factor that can
.be used in seeking the death
penalty in a murder.
McCoy, a Laurel Hill resi-
dent and former employee
of Coca- Cola Bottling Co. of
Valparaiso, allegedly made
a request-for-service call in
order to lure a Coca-Cola
employee to the scene of the
shooting, at the Northwest
Florida State College cam-
pus in DeFuniak Springs.
Adkinson said that
WCSO investigators on en
route to Tampa to assist in
interviews and processing of
the scenes there.
All at the press confer-
ence expressed satisfaction
at the level of cooperation
among various state agen-
cies in capturing McCoy.
.Weeks said that community
involvement had been "mas-
sive."

EDITORIAL *LETTERS TO THE EDITOR *PERSONAL COMMENTS


Editorial Comment

Walton citizens are

"rightwing extremists"

By RONKELLEY
It will come as a shock to Walton County residents to
learn that a large majority of them are rightwing extrem-
ists, according to the Obama administration. Oh, yes you
are. I'm not kidding, either.
The April 7, 2009 "Assessment" issued by the Office of
Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Home-
land Security (DHS), titled "Rightwing Extremism: Cur-
rent Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence
in Radicalization and Recruitment," makes it clear that
the Obama administration is gunning for what it perceives
as the enemy from within which is comprised mostly of
people like you.
According to Janet Napolitano, Obama's newly-appoint-
ed Department of Homeland Security secretary, if you are
an American and are a member of an active conservative
group that opposes abortion, or favors strict immigration
enforcement, or lobbies to protect Second Amendment
rights, or protests big government, especially if you are a
military veteran, you are a rightwing extremist. The re-
port compares you to neo-Nazis, racists, militias, white-
supremacists,. and other "hate groups." The report further
states that rightwing extremism "may include groups or
individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as op-
position to abortion or immigration."
S Of course, you weren't supposed to know that the Hope/
Change administration considers you the enemy. You and
I were never supposed.to read this' "Assessment." On the
report's cover page it warns that it is "not to be released to
the public; the media, or other personnel who do not have a
valid need-to-know."
Excuse me? We're Americans. We have a need to know
what's going on in our government especially in an, ad-
ministration that promised to be "transparent" and is ev-
erything but that.,
According to Napolitano's report, "Rightwing extremist
chatter: on the&Internet continued to focus on the economy,
the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing arid
construction sectors, and home foreclosures."
Sorry, Ms. Napolitano, it is not a perception, it is a fact.

Editor:
Greetings from Bagram Afghanistan to my fellow class-
mates of the Walton Senior High Braves' graduating class
of 1979. Those of you who remember me, will remember me
as Eddie Miller, albeit about 50 pounds heavier.
Upon graduation in 1979, I joined the U.S. Array, where
.I spent the next 13 years of my life. I traveled such plac-
es as Germany, Austria, Denmark "and South Korea, just
to name a few European and Asian countries, as well as
numerous states and cities across our own great United
States. I served on the East/West German border during
the time the Berlin Wall came down and shortly thereafter
Sfounid myself fighting in the middle of the'Gulf War, liber-
ating Kuwait from Suddam Hussein. '
After departing the U.S. Army in 1992. I moved back to
DeFuniak Springs for a short period where I met and fell
in love with my beautiful wife, now of 16+ years, Donna. I
began contracting for the U.S. Army shortly after, andhave
continued for the past 14+ years. My wife Donna and I, as
well as our two beautiful children, have traveled through-
out the United States during this time, with the exception
of the past six years.
During the past six years, we have maintained.a home
in North Carolina, while I continued my contracting ca-
reer in Kuwaiti (two years), Iraq (two years) and my cur-
rent assignment, Afghanistan. Needless to say, I have been
and am currently living my dreams. I thank the good Lord
above every day for keeping my family and me safe as well,
as blessingme with a very understanding wife who allows
me to chase those dreams. My mother-in-law, Ms. Ida Mar-
tin, who is like a mother to me, still resides in DeFuniak
Springs. My family.and I. visit as often as my career allows,
as we love to fish. the Choctawhatchee, River while visit-
ing.
Although I have not been able to attend any of the class
reunions held for the class of '79 during the past 30 years,
I have never forgotten any of you. The memories I have of
those days are most fond to me. I have met many people in

Smy travels from all walks of life and nationalities. Each and

always proudly announce "I am from DeFuniak Springs,
Florida. God's country ''
I want to take this opportunity to congratulate all of my
old friends and fellow classmates on our surviving the first
30 years after graduation, and best wishes on the next 30
years to coinme. I look forward to seeing some of you around
DeFuniak Springs on my next visit this summer.

Editor,
SAre we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or
was.it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our
shores on September. 11, 2001 and have continually threat-
ened to do so since? Were people from all over the world,
not brutally murdered that day; in downtown Manhattan,
across the Potomac from the nation's capitol and in a field
in Pennsylvania ?
Did nearly 3,000 men, women and children die a horri-
ble, burning or crushing death that day? And I'm supposed
to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by
a justice system of the nation they come from and are fight-
ing.against in a brutal insurgency.
I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in
and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on
9/11.
SI'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle
East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of
which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan.
I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sor-
ry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while- Berg screamed
through his gurgling slashed throat.
I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgent terror-
ists' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of
disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and
behind women and children.
I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves
up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children
within range of theiri suicide bombs.
I'll care when the liberal United States media stops pre-
tending that their freedom of speech on stories is more im-
portant than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their
families waiting at home to hear about them when some-
thing happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave
U.S. soldier roughing up an insurgent terrorist to obtain
information, know this, I don't care! When I see a wounded
terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move
because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the
bank, I don't care.
When I hear that a prisoner, whd'was issued a Koran
and a prayer mat, and 'fed special' food that is paid for by
my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy, book isbeing
"mishandled." you can absolutely believe in your heart of
hearts I don't ca're...
May I add, some people spend an entire lifetime wonder-
ing if they made a difference in the world, but our brave
soldiers don't have that problem.
One last thought for the day only five defining forces
have ever offered to die for you.
Jesus Christ, the U.S. soldiers, the British soldiers, the
Canadian soldier, and the Australian soldiers.
Every one of these brave men and women'volunteered for
duty. One died for your soul, the others for your freedom.

ufacturing and construction sectors alone, we have lost
287,000 jobs in the last month.
You active military folk and all of you veterans ... ohhhh,
you're really bad! Your government already distrusts you.
In the last months of the Bush presidency, a tiny provision
was slipped into one of the huge military spending bills
and passed by Congress without fanfare. The provision
states that any and all returning military personnel who
were ever interviewed by a mental health counselor are
prohibited from buying a gun again as long as they live. If
they really object, they have to apply to the FBI.
The kicker here is that all military personnel who have
seen combat are required to visit a mental health counselor
at least once, just to make sure they're OK. This law also
applies to veterans, even decades after their service.
Handy how that works out, isn't it? The one segment
of the population that has been trained in military tactics
and the use of the latest military weaponry is the one seg-
ment that is not allowed to possess any weapons ever.
In the report's "Key Findings," Napolitano states "right-
wing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing
on their fears about several emergent issues. The possible
passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of
military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrat-
ing into their communities could lead to the potential emer-
gence of terrorist groups or lone-wolf extremists capable of
carrying out violent attacks."
There's even a heading labeled "Disgruntled Military
Veterans." The report says, "rightwing extremists will at-
tempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order
to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military
training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the
potential to boost the capabilities of extremists includ-
ing lone wolves or small terrorist cells to carry out vio-
lence." Then the report refers to Timothy McVeigh the
1995 Oklahoma City bomber and reminds -us that he
was a military veteran. What the report fails to say is that
McVeigh was only' one of more than 40 million law-abiding
veterans. The report goes on to say "lone wolves and small
terrorist cells embracing violent rightwing extremist ideol-
ogy are the most dangerous domestic terrorism threat in
the United States."
So, according to Obama's Homeland Security secretary,
the most dangerous threat we face here at home isn't from
the radicals preaching violence in U.S. mosques, or the Is-
lamists recruiting members in prisons, or the Somali ter-
rorists enticing young immigrants to become suicide bomb-
ers or Hamas, Hezbollah or al Qaeda. No, according to your
government, the real threat is you and I.
Since the report became public, Congressman Jeff Miller.
issued a statement saving, "The President and his Home-


land Security Secretary should issue an apology to all vet-
erans for this insult. Likening all returning Afghanistan
and Iraq veterans to Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh
is an astonishing claim. The military is made up of over 2
million active, reserve and guard service personnel and to
paint them all with such a broad brush is unacceptable.
The only generalization that applies to our returning vet-
erans is that they are patriots. It's too bad I didn't see that
in the report."
Sorry, Congressman Miller, but that's just not good
enough. Let me be clear. An apology won't do. Any action
by Pres. Obama that falls short of the immediate dismissal
of Janet Napolitano is an unspoken but clear admission by
the president that he agrees with the report and considers
mainstream Americans to be enemies of the state.
Richard Thompson, with the Thomas More Law Center,
called the DHS assessment "a diatribe against those who
oppose the policies of the Obama administration. It is a
declaration of war against the American people and our
Constitution. It is a prelude to extreme gun-control legis-
lation and hate speech laws targeting Christian churches
and others who oppose abortion and same-sex marriage."
Michael Reagan asked, "Have we really come to this?
Has Adolf Hitler's propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels been
reborn and recruited by the Obama administration?"
The "Assessment" uses the term "rightwing extremists"
more than 35 times. A full copy of the leaked summary is
posted at www.freedomalliance.org.
So, let's review.
The Homeland Security secretary considers at least half
of all Americans are rightwing extremists. The secretary of
the U.S. Treasury is an admitted tax-cheat. The president
of the United States, who is not a natural-born citizen as
required, bowed to a Saudi Arabian king, and later he told
the French, "In America, there is a failure to appreciate
Europe's leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating
your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to
meet common challenges, there have been times where
America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even
derisive." Obama spoke these words just 500 miles from
the beaches of Normandy, where the sand is still stained
with the blood of our "arrogant" Americans.
While it's true that we recognize some of our presiden-
tial mistakes too late, (the last mistake lasted eight years)
I can tell you that, as one Napolitano's rightwing extrem-
ists, as one of Obama's bitter Americans clinging to my
guns and my religion, this is one mistake that will take
only four years to correct.
So much for the Hope/Change administration: In the.
words of the comic-strip character Pogo, "We have met the
enemy and he is us!"

Season's


B E-


By ASHLEY MASON
\" *AL^ ^ __


Everyone and their grand-
mother is talking about the
bailout-agreeing, disagree-
ing, rolling over in their
graves.
Article after editorial in
papers across the country
expose the latest earmarks
and nose-hair burners in
the trillion-dollar stimulus.
Protests, tea parties, and
secession have all been dis-
cussed. Granted, I've yet to
see any of these take place,
but I do so love a tea party
and New Hampshire is such
a lovely place to live:
'Thus far, aside, from
reading and listening to oth-
ers' opinions, I haven't had
much of a reaction to the
bailout. I.have no children
or grandchildren I have to
worry about being indebted
to China, and I've yet to be
forced to live in my car. Al-
though, that can work out
nicely for tax purposes. I
hear the current stimulus
package contains tax breaks
for purchasing a home and
buying a new car. So, worst
case scenario, I plan to get a
double tax-break by buying
a new General Motors van
and living in it.
But lately, the effects of
the bailout have trickled
down even to little ol' me.
For over a month now, I've
tried to reach JP Morgan/
Chase, the super company
that bought a very failing
Washington Mutual. I guess
keeping the rich bankers
distracted in that velvet-
rope 'pen wasn't the best
idea.
Ironically, WaMu's for-
mer commercial campaign
featuring a group of old rich
men kept in a "bankers' pen"


was meant to show how out-
dated other banks' ideas
and operations were. May-
be WaMu should've taken
pause to solicit advice from
one of those bankers in the
pen, perhaps the one read-
ing The Wall Street Journal
and scarfing down antacids.
WaMu's tagline: "There
are certain things you
should be scared of. Bank-
ing isn't one of them."
Scoff. Guffaw. Chuckle.
Well, my personal Fri-
day the 13th (or should I
say October 3rd) is dealing
with the Chase/WaMu buy-
out. Since Chase took over, I
can no longer log into my ac-
count online, nor can I reach
customer service via phone.
Even upon entering my ac-
count number and social
security number, I am told,
"We have no record of your
account."
Now this would be just
fine if Chase was wiping
my slate clean, but I believe
that's happening like I be-
lieve the Boston Marathon


is at the top of my to-do list.
No, I'm sure at this very mo-
ment late fees are piling up,
with a dash of interest on
top, just for some added fla-
vor.
No spoonful of sugar is
going to help this medicine
go down.
A bank acts fiscally irre-
sponsible, undergoes a buy-
out, and I, the customer, can
no longer reach the institu-
tion and must suffer penal-
ties, not to mention possible
damage to my credit score.
Does anyone find it a bit
too ironic that a bank fails
and my credit score could
be altered? In the very wise
words of my Granny Faye,
"Yea, boy."
So here I sit, force-fed
with a tarnished silver
spoon I bought. Just won-
dering, what kind of tea do
they serve in New Hamp-
shire?

American Red Cross offers water safety tips


Warm weather and sun-
shine are the perfect comple-
ments for a fun day at the
beach. To help make sure
that no emergencies arise,
the American Red Cross of
Northwest Florida reminds
families to follow these safe-
ty tips for staying healthy
and safe in or around the


By ASHLEYAMASON
"Most of the community is
going to readily say, 'that's
where you go to get your
baby's shots,' but we do a lot
more than that," said Kath-
ryn Barley, senior communi-
ty health nursing director at
the Walton County Health
Department (WCHD).
The WCHD celebrated
Health Week in a new facil-
ity and wants the commu-
nity to know about the ser-
vices available.
The WCHD offers primary
care with a Spanish-speak-
ing, board-certified M.D., a
nutritionist, and prenatal
care with a nurse practitio-
ner.for low-income families
or the uninsured, including
illegal' aliens. Also, vaccina-


water:
Watch out for the "dan-
gerous too's." Take a break
at the point of being too
tired, too cold, or too far
from safety, too much sun,
too little hydration, too
much strenuous activity.
Don't mix alcohol and
swimming. Alcohol impairs


tions (including hepatitis
and rabies) are free for chil-
dren until the age of 18, and
there are income-based vac-
cinations for adults.
"Our state is quite gener-
ous in how they allocate dol-
lars to help people," Barley
noted. The WCHD serves
the community in. family-
planning methods, including
sterilization, natural birth-
control, common birth-con-
trol methods, and sexually-
transmitted disease testing
and treatment.
Community-based pro-
grams are also offered by
the WCHD, such as Healthy
Start' a program to provide
optimal health for pregnant
women and newborns and
a tobacco prevention and
chronic-disease program,


your judgment, balance, and
coordination, affects your
swimming and diving skills
and reduces your body's
ability to stay warm.
Pack a "safety" bag for
a day at the beach or lake.
Water-proof sunscreen with
an SPF 15 or higher, water
shoes to keep feet safe from


which includes speakers at
local elementary schools.
"The last thing we do a
good bit of is preparedness,"
Barley said, "management
of disaster shelters for the
special-needs people." This
preparation includes hav-
ing water, food, oxygen, cots
and other medical supplies
on reserve.
"Our biggest challenge
and goal with that program
is getting out the word about
preparedness at home,",she
added.
In June, the WCHD will
host Surgeon General Ana
Viamonte Ros at its open-
house to celebrate its new
location and services, as
well as to spread awareness
within the community.

FFN STAFF will be out in the community the next few weeks, seeking to raise awareness
about the prevention of child abuse and seeking donations to purchase playground equip-
ment to honor the 164 children who died in Florida in 2007 due to abuse and neglect.




It should not



hurt to be a child


By ALICIA LEONARD
S Families First Network
(FFN) is looking for ways to
inform the public that April
is Child Abuse Prevention
Awareness Month. Rachel
Jones, Noah McCabe and
coworkers from FFN, will be
out in the community in the
coming weeks, "striving to
make our community aware
that the state of Florida had
164 deaths due to abuse or
neglect of a child in 2007."
Jones said that five of these
deaths were in District One,
which is composed of Wal-
ton, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa
and Escambia counties. The
Blue Ribbons fbr Kids pro-
gram is part of the aware-
ness campaign.
DeFuniak Springs lMay-
or Harold -Carpenter- will
sign a proclamation declar-
ing April as National Child
Abuse Prevention Month in
the DeFuniak Springs.
In honor of these children
who lost their lives, FFN is
seeking, like-minded busi-
ness to partner as advocates
for the prevention of child
abuse and neglect. Local
business can partner with
FFN in three ways allow
FFN to leave and display
educational material for
their customers, -display a
blue ribbon in recognition
of Child Abuse Prevention
Month in a high visibility
area or contribute financial-
ly towards new playground
equipment that will be in-
stalled at a city.park in De-
Funiak Springs as a memo-
rial to the children.who have
lost their lives due to abuse
and neglect.
'"We want to go into the'
community and help raise
the awareness of what ev-
eryone can. do to help pre-
vent child abuse. We felt
like playground equipment
would be a fitting way to re-
member those children that
lost their lives. We spoke
with the city about the 1,lth
Street park and they said
we could place playground
equipment there, in 'their
honor," said Jones.
FFN is trying to raise,
through donations, at least
$8,000 for the equipment for
the park. "There's really no
limit. We would like to be
able to raise as much as pos-
sible to purchase the most
equipment available. We

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Editor:
It has finally happened, hell has frozen over. It must
have happened, seeing what has occurred during the past
couple of weeks. We have witnessed the president of the
U.S. bowing to a Muslim king. Spin it as you will, White
House. What I witnessed was, without any doubt, a loyal
subject bowing to his monarch. "Two handed-greeting," no
way, Jose. "The king is shorter," that dog won't hunt either.
The Queen of England is much shorter and Obama did not
bow to her. That bow came from years of practice and being
.obedient to the faith.
Then our president goes and apologizes to France, of all
nations, for us being arrogant. I wonder -if he meant that
we were arrogant in our approach to Normandy beaches.
Maybe he should prove his submissiveness to France by
cleaning out the graveyards in France of all the Americans
who shed blood and gave lives to save their arrogant butts.
It seemed that it was not the Ifirst time American blood had
been shed for that nation.
Then to Germany, we are apologizing for being "Divisive."
Every time Germany needed some exercise they would cross
over and slap the French.into surrender and then the U.S.
would have to come and divide them again. 'Germany has
forgotten what the U.S. did during a time called the Berlin
Airlift,'when the Russians were coming at the end of WW
II; most of the German civilians ran like crazy to be in the
Allied path to keep from coming under the Russian bear. A
little thing like NATO comes to mind, where the U.S. footed
the majority of the funding and troop strength that kept
Russia at bay for years and years. Rebuilding of Germany
took time, money and most of it came from the U.S.
Then the big apology came when our president alluded
to the need to reign in nuclear weapons, and stated that
"we are the only nation to use them so we need to lead in
disbanding." I guess his history books in Kenya and Indo-
nesia did not include the part of Japan attacking us with-
out warning. (9-11 ring a bell? The statistics gathered by all
parties here in the U1.S. at the time estimated that by using
the atom bomb, we saved approximately 200,000 American
lives. Now, in my book, it was much better to save'2,000
American lives than those lost in Japan by forcing them to
surrender. They could have accepted the terms earlier. We
were forced to get their attention and Harry Truman made
the right choice'.
I am. tired of our elected leaders apologizing for our na-
tion. We are still the most powerful nation on earth. By bow-
ing and scraping we only lower ourselves to others. We area
nation that comes to the aid of others in trouble. Where was
France, Germany, Spain or our neighbors in South America
when Katrina hit? Why is it we give out billions in foreign
aid to countries who turn around and snub us or insult us
openly?
We need to return to our roots of a Judeo/Christian na-
tion. (Not a nation of citizens, Mr. President. That term
sounds a lot like. a socialist rendering of a One/World Or-
der) We need to be arrogant, divisive, and dismissive more,
not less, and regain our states as the leader we have been
in the past, Those. traits have proven effective during the
past and can be again. In spite of the characteristics, our
president apologized for, we are still the nation the world
turns to for assistance in a time of difficulty.
I, for one, am still proud to be called an American, and

Editor,
The Federal. Reserve is responsible for the poor econo-
my.
The U.S. Treasury used to mint gold and silver into coins.
Later, when paper money was issued by the Treasury, it
was backed by gold or silver. In 1913, Congress created
the unconstitutional Federal Reserve. Today, our currency
is not backed by any precious metal. It is fiat money made
legal tender by federal law.
The Federal Reserve decides how much money the Trea-
sury needs to print. The fiat money stimulus packages will
cause large-scale inflation that always follows fiat money.
Our government will probably tell us that we can avoid in-
flation by joining the International Monetary Fund, or some
other international group, thus destroying our dollar.
The Federal Reserve is not accountable to anyone. It has
never been fully audited. If we want to preserve our dollar,
we need to get Congress to stop the printing of fiat money.
We citizens need to contact Congress to vote for the Federal
Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 (H.R. 1207 and S.. 604)
to get the audit we need. Otherwise, our dollar may soon
become as worthless as the,German Mark after World War
One.

Editor,

I've had it with the constant attacks and tax punishment
placed on tobacco users. At what point did America become
the country of hypocrites bent on changing everyone's life
style but their own? Sure, I'm aware of the increased cost
placed on the health care system from smoking. But, it
pales with the cost that obesity causes. I don't see any new
taxes on french fries and pizzas. Obesity contributes to a
plethora of ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure,
heart attack, feet and knee ailments, and on and on.
I understand that we need to try and keep our young
people from ever starting the tobacco habit. That's a given.
But do it at home! However, if you look around, it is plain
to see that young people are stuffing their faces with un-
healthy fast foods, sugars, pizzas, and soda at an alarming


rate and the parents are usually right in there with them.
"Please don't kill yourself smoking, but eat yourself to ruin
and we'll help." Nobody is trying to make sodas too expen-
sive to curb its usage. That's because the parents would
have to pay for that. This is hypocritical and dishonest with
one's self.
Tobacco farmers have children to feed, too. Hundreds of
thousands of people work in tobacco-related industries. Are
we to just price them all out of house and home?
Consider this if we start taking taxes from tobacco to
fund many new programs, and then more people stop smok-
ing where do you think the money will come from to keep
the programs going?
The Christian Coalition of Florida states that tobacco
taxes are a more appropriate approach to raising money
to fund such things as children's health insurance for low
income families. They are steadfastly against the projected
$1 billion dollars that legal slot machines would bring in.
This kind of thinking will continue to lead us down the road
to financial destruction. And what gives them the right to
pass judgment?
At some point, we are going to have to use common sense
and take the emotions out of the equation if we expect to
live in a free world. I wonder how many children could
get insured if we tax churches and all the programs they
put forward to raise tax-free funds? I would like to see the
amount of funds given by the Christian Coalition to cure
.cancer compared to the tobacco industries' donations for
the same. It's seems like we are biting the hand that feeds
us sometimes.
It's not a fight I am seeking, and I have nothing but re-
spect for the Florida Christian Coalition, but we need edu-
cated solutions to very tough problems, not emotional value
judgments. Tobacco use is bad, but we can't fund every pro-
gram needed in this state by raising taxes on tobacco three
or four times a year.
Let's tax obesity-causing products such as pizzas and
fast foods, and alcohol, and sodas. It's rare that a person
needs a scooter to shop at Wal-Mart because of a smok-
ing problem; but obesity has caused them to take on a new
fleet of scooters. That tells me something about health care
costs in our state. They are out of control. Now we want to
tax the people providing the funds for cancer research out
of existence. You can't legislate morality, and we don't need
to waste our time trying to. Punishing people for their bad
habits has never worked in this country. Prohibition was a
dismal failure for us all.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 23,2009

HILLARD CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


ians." Hillard said he was
humbled upon learning that
he had been chosen. "I sat
here and wondered about it.
It caught me off guard."
One on the main themes
of CFL is awareness, said
Hillard. "To let people learn
to be aware the everyday
rules and regulations that
affect their lives is a very big
focus of CFL and to keep re-
minding people that we have
a strong intergenerational


component to the organiza-
tion, even though we often
focus on senior citizens. We
have such great cooperation
with all of the citizens and
local organizations." Hil-
lard is especially proud of a
recent agreement between
the Chautauqua Cyber Club
and the 4-H Club. "We are
going to work together to
provide free computers to
kids, age three to 12. We are
going to try and make these


available to kids that can't
afford computers. I'm excit-
ed about that."
Hillard said that volun-
teerism represents a great
opportunity for young and
old alike. "I know it's eas-
ier for our retired citizens
to volunteers because they
have raised their families.
That's where our retired
volunteers fill a void, be-
cause they have more time,
but I would urge everyone


PAGE 11-A


who can, to get involved
in something they can feel
good about. It helps build a
stronger community."
Hillard said that Frank-
lin's take on success prob-
ably, unconsciously, drives
many volunteers. "They just
know they do it because it
feels good to help others,
but helping others is a great
measure of success. There is
always something to be in-
volved in, you just have to
look," he said. "I hope this
annual recognition day, in
the future, can be used to let
organizations recruit other


volunteers. The volunteer
spirit helps make a com-
munity. People who volun-
teer stay 'plugged into life.'
They are happy, upbeat and
always looking for the next
thing to do. Can you imag-
ine what this world would
be like without volunteers?
I do the things I do because I
enjoy being a part of things.
It keeps me going. I'm 72
this week and I need a few
more years of activity. I'm
not sure what 72 is sup-
posed to feel like, but I feel
alive and energized and I
just keep going."


IMPACT

for a FEMA grant was not
approved due 'to the lack of
some information. He wants
to get a grant writer (whose
fees are in the range of $500
up-front and another $500
upon grant approval) to re-
submit the request asking
for $60,000 for equipment
to improve the department
maintenance level. The
Council approved his re-
quest to go forward on re-
submission of the grant.
City Engineer Charles
Peters reported that the
test on No. 7 water well was
good.
Peters said that one item
still must be corrected to fin-


FROM PAGE 1-A

ish the sewage plant project.
A part necessary to complete
the correction is on order.
This project will make the
city able to provide irriga-
tion water to the Hammock
Bay development.
Peters recommended the
Council authorize solicita-
tions of potential water cus-
tomers to the west of Port-
land to determine how many
would use the extended wa-
ter system. He noted that
grant funding potential for
utility projects looks good.
Bud Day of Dayco, which
furnishes municipal waste
pick in the area, asked the
Council to approve a re-


quest for a rate increase.
The Council approved the
request.
Cliff Knauer advised the
Council that a grant fund
for small shipyard improve-
ment assistance has been
identified. He said that
grant requests for Freeport
Shipyard and the Destin
Fisherman's Co-op could
be submitted to try to get
funds to install new travel-
ling crane equipment for
each organization. In the
case of Freeport Shipyard
a crane that could handle
a 300 foot-long vessel could
be installed which could re-
duce launching manpower
requirements by 1,000 man-
hours and launching dam-
age by a significant amount.


TASK FORCE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


at night so residents could
come and provide input to
the way they would like to
see the county develop in the
years ahead. In effect, this
makes this project a vision
of the county's residents.
Goetsch went on to lead'
the Task Force in the de-
velopment of a draft list of
sections including trans-
portation, environmental,
parks and recreation, utili-
ties, public works, citizens'
services, economic devel-
opment, communications,
military matters and others.
Goetsch will review all of the
topics and recommend a list

The matters referred to the Le

be discussed at a like num-
ber of town hall meetings in
the coming months.
A Web page to provide a
means of getting input from
residents will be developed
for the county web site. In
addition, a number of differ-
ent ways to keep the public
aware of the schedule and
subject matter for the town
hall meetings will be devel-
oped. Residents' input is es-
sential to the project.
Material from the Web
site and comments from res-
idents at the town hall meet-
ings and from other sources


to be developed will be used
to develop a vision state-
ment and strategic plan for
the county. This vision and
plan will then be presented
to the public.
Goetsch said that the
finished plan'will be a doc-
ument that provides flex-
ibility to take advantage of
opportunities which may de-
velop from time to time and
it will be a living,, breathing
document that should be
reviewed and revised on a
regular schedule.

Remainder of the in-

the process by which funding
is implemented. Though the
presentment makes a num-
ber of points about alleged
circumvention of legislative
checks and balances, and
touches on campaign con-
tributions, Sunshine Law
violations, and inferences of
"impropriety," the present-
ment does not bring crimi-
nal charges, merely advises
the Legislature.
Richburg has reportedly
put himself on unpaid leave
pending a special April 28'
meeting of the NFSC Board
of Trustees. It is not certain
whether the board will be
prepared to act on that date,
but the matter will be raised
and discussed. Neither Rich-
burg nor Sansom have com-

This would allow the ship-
yard to increase its business
volume by bidding on ships
currently beyond its size

posed for the Fisherman's

ganization to offer secure
storage for boats during
hurricane strikes.
Knauer asked the Coun-
cil to issue a letter of sup-
port for the proposed proj-
ects. He noted that he has
already has letters from the
Chamber of Commerce and
the city of Destin. The Coun-
cil agreed to the request.
The Council approved
City Clerk Robin Haynes'
request to attend the June
City Clerk conference.
Mayor Mickey Marse re-
ported attending a meeting
of mayors from Alabama
and Florida communities
along the U.S. 331 corridor.
The Alabama group is work-
ing to complete widening
the road to four lanes. They
report they are helping
their Florida counterparts
in a similar effort as much
as they can. They want
Florida cities to help pay for
signs to promote the project.
The Council felt that Marse
should continue to attend
meetings with this group as
the project is also in the in-
terest of Freeport.

Name that burger!


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 23,2009
I l. -" - -


By ASHLEYAMASON
Jay Mabry, owner of
Smokey J's Restaurant in
DeFuniak Springs, is not
just known for his slow-
cooked barbecue. Smokey Js
is quickly becoming famous
for its monster hamburger
challenge. A man vs. food
battle, this 3-pound colossal
hamburger with a pound of
french fries has taken down
33 of 35 challengers.
Think it's a piece of cake?
Just wait until you see it.
Challengers' eyes bulge
from their sockets upon
meeting their opponent, one
of Mabry's double triple-
stack hamburgers.
Of course, before they at-
tempt to conquer the beefy
beast, challengers must
agree to several terms..These
bold carnivores must eat ev-
erything on the plate. No


sharing is allowed and any
dropped food must be eaten.
Need a bathroom break?
Sorry, not during this chal-
lenge. Leaving the table or
purging are grounds for dis-
qualification (and the server
will be keeping time). All
challengers agree they will
free Smokey J's from any
liability while participat-
ing in the burger challenge
(translation: they brought
their own driver and insur-
ance card for the ER should
they need it).
"The entire restaurant
gets into it," Mabry said.
"I've seen 15 or 20 people
rooting for a guy trying to
finish it."
On how he decided what
size the burger should be,
Mabry said he used a sample
pool of local football play-
ers. The first guinea pigs


to attempt the three-pound
burger and pound of fries
both left defeated. "It was
close though, so I knew it
could be done," Mabry said.
And that's how the burger
challenge came about.
Thus far, only two men
have conquered this. ulti-
mate burger, with a time
of 33 minutes. The perks of
winning, other than pride -
and not being hungry for the
next three days include not
having to pay for the $19.95
lunch plate and the privi-
lege of naming the burger
(it's currently the Adam
burger).
So, anyone who thinks
they're up to the challenge,
head on over to Smokey Js.
Just remember Smokey Js'
Rule No. 10 no crying al-
lowed!


BEEF, IT'S WHAT'S FOR LUNCH! Smokey Js owner Jay Mabry brings out the beef for
the burger challenge.


LOCAL FIREFIGHTER
Nathan Higginbottom, left,
was Challenger No. 35. With
two patties left, he laughed
and said, "Thanks for lunch.
It was good, but I'm done."
JAY"S TIP to challengers
is to separate the patties and
power through as much as
possible in the first 10 min-
utes.


-* ^ ^ !


NO SHARING, no leaving, and no crying is allowed when
attempting to conquer this beefy beast.

TEA FOR HUNDREDS SERVED



IN SANTA ROSA BEACH


Story and photos by
DOTTYNIST

"They're not going to be
able to ignore us any lon-
ger," said Mary Brown, co-
organizer for the April 15
Walton County Tea Party.
Brown, a 30-year Walton
County resident and busi-
ness owner, and Bob Sulli-
van, a retired Air Force of-
ficer, spearheaded the event
on short notice soon after
they both attended a tea
party in another area.
Organizers estimated
that over 250 people showed
up on the grounds of the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex to join in protesting
high taxes and too' much
government spending. The
tea party took place on the
same day as hundreds of
similar gatherings all over
the country.
There were American


flags flying and more angry
signs than one could shake a
stick at, along with speech-
es, and patriotic music. A
petition expressing opposi-
tion to excessive taxation
was available for signing,
and attendees could write
their names on tea bags,
which were tied to a Tree of
Freedom.
'We've been way too com-
placent too long," Brown
told the crowd, adding, "I'm
concerned about the direc-
tion this country is headed."
She called for an end to the
nation running up debts to
be .left to "our children and
grandchildren to pay."
"We are borrowing from
foreign countries and some-
day that bill is going to come
due," Brown warned.
Jerry Melvin, former state
representative, later took
the stage, praising those re-
sponsible for the gathering.
Melvin quoted a statement
by Norman Thomas, a So-
Scialist Party candidate for
six elections prior to 1970,
in which he predicted that


"THIS IS strictly a grass-
roots effort," tea party co-
organizer Mary Brown told
attendees.


JERRY MELVIN, former
state representative, com-
mented, "Let's do stick to-
gether."


'1


j


America would unknowingly
adopt the Socialist program
"under the name of 'liberal-
ism."'
Melvin called for an end
to presidential executive or-
ders. "We are not a dictator-
ship," he told the crowd.
"Anti" movements are
often criticized for not put-
ting forth a positive plan as
an alternative, but this was
not the case in this instance.
Representing the Florida
Fair Tax Educational Orga-
nization, Kerry Bowers pro-
vided a presentation on the
Fair Tax proposal, which is
now incorporated in House
Resolution 25. The bill has
been introduced in the U.S.
House of Representatives.
Bowers explained that
Fair Tax would do away
with income taxes, to be re-
placed by a 23-percent sales
tax on the purchase of any
new (not used) items. Any
tax on savings or invest-
ments would be eliminated,
he added.
Bowers predicted that
putting the Fair Tax 'in
place would attract invest-
ment back to the United
States by the trillions of
dollars, away from offshore
financial centers, thereby
greatly increasing the na-
tion's monetary supply, loan
capability, and employment
opportunities.
While the tea party had
been billed as nonpartisan,
much heat was directed at
the Obama administration,
now in its fourth month, and
Democrat politicians.
"He should have never
been in the White House,"
a woman taking the micro-
phone said of Obama. An-
other speaker said she was
ashamed to have voted for
him.
The U.S. Congress in gen-
eral was berated by several
speakers, and a number of
signs called for term limits
for politicians.
South Walton County res-
ident Charlotte Flynt had a
different take on term lim-
its, saying that they already
exist. "It's called your vote,"
she said, encouraging citi-
zens to educate themselves


on candidates.
"Take the time to edu-
cate your children and your
grandchildren about our
history. If we forget, we per-
ish," added Tim Lamica.
On the local front, Walton
County Commission Chair
Sara Comander. noted that
commissioners have cut $10
million from the county bud-
get over the past two years
and may cut $7 million in
the next fiscal year's budget.
She told attendees that the
county commission needs to
know what programs and
services are important to
residents in order to priori-
tize spending. "I represent
you, but I've got to hear
you," she said.
Grayton Beach pioneer
Linda Eyer said this was
the first rally she had ever
attended, at age 68. She de-
scribed herself as "fed up
with Washington."
"They have lost touch
with us," she railed.
"We dan't go home today
and quit;" Eyer urged the
participants, "we are here,
baby, and we are going to
make ourselves known!"
Sullivan said the organiz-
ers would try to hold anoth-
er the Walton County Tea
Party rally on the Fourth of
July.

Stanley -lfouse hosts


volunteer luncheon


PERSONAL SERVICE Assistant Christy Davis serves the volunteers during the annual
Stanley House Volunteer Luncheon.


Staff Reports
April 19 through April 25
is National Volunteer Week,
and to celebrate, Stanley
House Assisted Living re-
cently hosted a luncheon
to honor many of the local
citizens who give their time
and talents to the residents.
After a feast of herbed
chicken, barbecued ribs and
coconut cake, Alex Alexan-
der, Stanley House direc-

various groups for their con-
tributions, and presented
each volunteer with the gift
of a flowering potted plant.
Each plant bore the inscrip-


tion, "If caring people were
flowers, we'd pick you!"
"The residents wanted to
give something back to the
volunteers, so they painted
the clay pots in various
spring colors, and we added
bedding plants that the vol-
unteers can transplant to
their home gardens," said
Alexander.
"We want to express our
heartfelt thanks to all the
volunteers who come to
Stanley House on a regular
basis," added Alexander,
"especially our musicians;
the CCC singers, the CG
Singers, Ronice Adams,
Janice Andrews, and Cal-


etta Nuosci."
Also recognized were
those -who help with reli-
gious studies, including Rev.
Spence, Rev. Buck and Wil-
lene Scroggins, Rev. Hubert
McCrary, John Scott, vicar
of St. Agatha's Episcopal
Church, and the Bible-study
group from First United
Methodist Church. Also
named were Tina and Pat-
rick Ward who often call the
bingo games, and Pat Ernst,
who helps with various arts,
crafts and gardening proj-
ects.

ing, call Alex Alexander at

Meyer


To the sounds of his fa-
vorite Dylan song, Michael
"Mike" Meyer, 61, of Mira-
mar Beach, FL., passed
away peacefully at home on
Wednesday, April 8, 2009.
Beloved husband of
Lacey, father and mentor
of sons Jacob and Hunter,
and Jacob's fiance Stefanie
Carpenter. He is survived
by brothers, Steve Meyer
and wife Patti of Columbia,
S.C., David Meyer and wife
Monica of Destin, FL.; two
nieces and one great niece
and nephew.
Mike was born in Defi-
ance, Ohio, on Jan. 9, 1948.
Throughout his life, Mike
spent his best moments out
in nature, and was a true
sportsman to the bone. His
passion for surfing, born
from his youth in Hawaii,
inspired the creation of his
successful business, Meyer
Skimboards, and the infec-
tious surfing bug was of
course passed along to his
sons, Jake and Hunter.
His love of deep sea fish-
Sing took him, one fateful
day, to the fishing boat,
New Florida Girl, for hire
at the docks at Destin Har-
bor, bringing him face to
face with his last great love,
Lacey, with whom he has
been happily married for 23
years.
His enduring love for
hunting named his second
son, Hunter, who shares his
father's enthusiasm for the
sport, and all of the good
times spent together with
friends at their hunting
cabin in Alabama.

fice and the citizens of Wal-

We thought of you today,

And will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who -love you know
Remembering you is easy
IWe do it everyday
It's the he'artache of losing you
That will never go away.

You will forever be in our hearts.
Love you always,

My professional career began when I was 18
years old in a large medical center in Birming-
ham, AL. I started in the admitting department
making hospital arm bands. Over the years, I
advanced in rank, and after 15 years made it to
lower management.
At that time, I began working in the skilled
nursing home facilities owned by the hospital.
There, I interacted with and began managing
staffing for those facilities. This continued and
broadened in scope until I became an adminis-
trator of an Assisted Living in the Sandestin'area
in the early 1990's.
All of this to say that I had the most compas-
sionate, most loving, most sincere staff possible to
care for elderly residents in that setting. My staff
was loved by our residents and family members.
Were the best and couldn't be topped.
Or at least I've thought so since 1994. And
then one day my precious mother decided to move
to Stanley House Assisted Living in DeFuniak
Springs. As I interviewed them to see if they
could possible meet my expectations; my private
thoughts were that I would never put my mother
in someone else's care and no one could love and
care for her better than I could.
Well, now after four months of going to Stan-
ley House to visit my mom on a daily basis, I can
humble myself and joyfully and loudly admit that
their facility far exceeds what I myself had ac-
complished in mine.
I truly believe that God has blessed this place.
The beautiful peace and love you feel here is real.
The staff genuinely loves -my mother and does
take care of her even better than I can. She gets
so much attention and her quality of life is the
best I could ever hope for.
Daily, I'm in awe of the staff, their love, com-
passion, sweetness and caring and it's not just a
few employees, it's everyone there. I can't explain
all that at I've seen, felt and sensed. All I know is
that it's a place of joy, calm, fun, laughter, and
it's staff are truly my mother's angels. Only God
can give the type of peace that Stanley House
has.
Thank you and God bless
everyone there for loving
and caring for my mother

.Proverbs 3:10 "By. pride
comes nothing but strife."
Proverbs 16:18,19 "Pride
goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before
a fall. It is better to be of a
lowly spirit with the poor
than to divide the spoil with
the proud."
Proverbs 21:4 "Haughty
eyes and a proud heart, the
lamp of the wicked, are sin.",
Daniel 4:37 "Now I, Nebu-
chadnezzar, praise and extol
and honor the King of heav-
en, for all His works are
right and his ways are just;
and those who walk in pride
he is able to humble."
Pride in a son or daugh-
ter's accomplishments can
be a good pride.
However, God does not
condemn us for acting in
this manner,, but He does
condemn us when we refuse
to be humble-contrite be-
fore Him.
Pride is being more con-
cerned about what others
think of me than what God
knows me to be.
Pride can manifest itself
through shyness as well as
through arrogance.


Pride deals in generali-
ties; humility deals in spe-
cifics.
When we find ourself be-
ginning to talk in generali-
ties about what God is doing
in our life, or we become con-
tent to confess sin generally
rather than specifically, you
can be certain that pride is
re-establishing a foothold in
your life.
Keep yourself account-
able to others for what God
is doing in your life. We all
need a spiritual mentor.
Be open, transparent,
honest, and specific.
Pride covers up; humility
confesses.
The first tendency people
have when they begin to
back away from.the work of,
God is tocover up their true
spiritual condition with a
false cloak of spirituality.

they do the right things,
but they have ceased to be
right.
Rather than being hon-
est and transparent about
their condition, they choose
to "save face" by pretending
to be spiritually soundwhen
they are not.
Spiritual accountability
to others will help to pre-
vent pride from settling into

Freeport's Arnquist pitches Bulldogs to 11-inning win


Drew Porter's single drops PDL 7-6


By PATRICK CASEY
This one will go down
as a classic as the two dis-
trict foes and Area 5 rivals
staged an -11-inning game
that lasted three hours and
wasn't decided until a bases
loaded single by Drew Por-
ter in the bottom of the 11th
inning on Friday night as
Freeport outlasted PDL 7-6.
Freeport took a 3-0 lead
after three innings of play
as Cole Weeks and Michael
Graziani doubled to start
the game and Nathan Hen-
drickson followed with one
of his three hits on the night
to give the Bulldogs a 2-0
lead after one inning of play.
The Bulldogs added another
run in the third when Hen-
drickson scored off of Drew
Porter's double.
PDL got on the board with
an inside-the-park .home
run by catcher Paul Griffin
to cut the lead to 3-1 in the
top of the fourth inning.
Freeport added two more
runs in the fourth as to in-
crease the lead to 5-1.
The Pirates mounted a
four-run rally in the fifth


inning as Colton Campbell
walked and Brock Bishop
singled. Starting pitcher
Ryan Varner followed with
a double that drove in two
runs, then scored on first
baseman Brandon Howell's
two-run home run to tie the
game at 5-5.
Freeport took back the
lead in the bottom of the
fifth inning as leftfielder
Justin Farmer singled in
Hendrickson for a 6-5 lead.
PDL starter Ryan Varner
was injured beating out a
throw at first in the top of
the seventh inning and had
to leave the game. Varner
gave up eight hits in six in-
nings of work and was on
the hook for the loss until
pinch-runner Joey Holland
scored with the help of an-
other Bulldog error to tie
the game at 6-6.
The two teams settled
down to play three score-
less innings as Joe Arrant
took over for Varner and
pitched the final five innings
of the game. Arrant allowed
only two hits while walking
three. He struck out four


batters in the game, but ran
into trouble in the 11th with
as he walked the first better,
then had to try to get out of
a bases-loaded jam when
Porter hit his 3-1 offering
for the game winner.
Freeport starter Kory
Arnquist continued to pitch
late into the game, overcom-
ing some fielding errors by
his teammates, to pitch all
11 innings of the contest.
Arnquist was one of the first
out of the dugout to greet
teammate Porter after his
bases loaded hit.
The Bulldogs started the
bottom of the 11th inning
with a walk to Graziani fol-
lowed by a single by Coty
Porter. Chase Martin bunt-
ed the two base runners
over to second and third.
Hendrickson was inten-
tionally walked, setting up
Drew Porter's shot down the
third-base line to win the
game.
"I asked Arnquist if he
wanted to continue," said
Freeport coach Gene Martin
after the game, "and he said
he was good to go. He hadn't


pitched in about 10 days and
was well-rested. He showed
it tonight with a gutsy per-
formance."
Martin added, That's
the longest I remember a
high school going that I have
been the coach of. It was a
big win for us and we have a
week left to play before get-
ting ready for our semi-final
here on April 28."
Drew Porter and Na-
than Hendrickson had five
of Freeport's ten hits while
Ryan Varner had two of
PDL's six hits before leaving
the game.
PDL had defeated Free-
port 8-7 in Ponce de Leon on
March 18, but both teams
needed' the win to grab the
No. 2-seed. Jay finished the
district slate 10-0 to grab
the top seed. PDL fell to 8-9
with the loss with a 5-5 re-
cord in the district. Baker
earns the NO. 3-seed by
virtue of sweeping PDL dur-
ing the regular season while
PDL will goin as the NO.
4-seed.


Game Notes: Freeport is
14-8 after defeating Pensa-
cola Christian on Saturday
in Freeport 6-4. The Bull-
dogs finished the district
with a 7-3 record. Freeport
will play the Baker-Vernon
winner on April 28 in one
semi-final game while the


PDL-Pensacola Christian
winner will face off with Jay.
The Pirates have played Jay
in a pair of one run contests,
losing 4-3 and 5-4 this sea-
son. Freeport swept both
Baker and Pensacola Chris-
tian during the regular sea-
son.

SWFD hosts Panhandle


fire chiefs meeting


Last week the South Wal,
ton Fire District (SWFD)
hosted a meeting of the
Region I (Panhandle) fire
chiefs. Forty area- chief offi-
cers from Pensacola to Tal-
lahassee were in attendance
to receive a briefing from
Nat Ippolito, president of
the Florida Fire Chiefs As-
sociation (FFCA) and fire
chief of San Carlos Park
Fire District.
Over the past several
months, both Ippolito and
Jim Wile, executive direc-
tor of the FFCA, have been
conducting regional meet-
ings. "We have found the
meetings to be invaluable
in the discussion of state,
local, and regional fire ser-
vice matters and trust that
the information gained in
these meetings will be of the
utmost assistance in the de-
velopment" of our strategic
plan during the first week
in May." said Ippolito.
Ippolito reaffirmed his
message by saying, "The
economic climate is tough,
but Florida has and will
continue to prove that we


will weather the economic
storm, and as we have many
times before, be an exempla-
ry model for other states to
follow." Through leadership
and as good stewards of the
public's trust and dollars,
we must continue to develop
strategies that will main-
tain the level of service that
our community's demand
and will contain the costs of
delivering those services."


"The SWFD was pleased
and honored to host Presi-
dent Ippolito and staff, as
well as representatives from
the MDA said Rick Tal-
bert, SWFD fire chief.
The Muscular Dystro-
phy Association (MDA) was
there to share their message

tap, ethics


questions raised


By DOTTY NIST
Driftwood Estates resi-
dents have- again urged
county commissioners to file
suit against the developer
of the interior of the sub-
division. Also at the April
14 Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting, Driftwood
homeowner Alan Osborne
raised Sunshine Law ques-
tions related to the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs'
(DCA) handling of Driftwood
homeowners' complaints
and in connection with a
county commissioner's par-
ticipation on Driftwood mat-
ters.
About 25 Greater Drift-
wood Estates residents
were present at the April 14
meeting.
Homeowner Alex Kish
showed commissioners and
attendees videos of the
flood-prone Mack Bayou-
area subdivision, which he
told them had been taken
after a recent modest two-
inch rain. "This is at normal
bay level," Kish stated as he
displayed frame after frame


of driveways under water in
the subdivision.
"It continues to back up,"
Kish told the commission-
ers. He added that he had
been disappointed at the re-
sult or lack of results after
the county's recent clear-
ing of the historic drainage
easement on the Edmonds
property in the subdivision.
Driftwood Point Road
resident Joni Bell told of
problems with her home's
electric gate resulting from
standing water on her lot.
She said that often the gate
would not open the morn-
ing after a rain and that her
family has to call a contrac-
tor on those occasions to get
the gate working again.
"Now I'm asking you what
you can do for us," Bell told
the commissioners.
Kish urged' the commis-
sioners to sue the developer
of the new interior portion
of the arrowhead-shaped
peninsular property. This

Register American Cancer Society Relay For Life teams now


The American Cancer
Society Relay For Life of
South Walton County is just
around the corner. Register
a team today by calling the
American Cancer Society at
(850) 244-244-3813 ext. 116.
This "celebration of life"
brings the Walton County
community together in a
unified effort to fight can-
cer.

Former and current can-
cer patients, their families,


businesses, civic organiza-
tions, and the public are
invited to take part in this
exciting team event. Relay
For Life takes place from
noon on Saturday, April
25, until 6 a.m. on Sunday,
April 26, at South Walton
High School on U.S. 331
South, Santa Rosa Beach.
Relay For Life is the
American Cancer Society's
version of an athletic relay,
but with a new twist. Relay
For Life is a family-oriented


event where participants
enjoy the camaraderie of a
team and also raise funds to
support the activities of the
American Cancer Society.
At this year's event, which
is designed to be similar to a
family festival, participants
will camp out overnight at
the relay site, and when
they are not taking their
turn walking, they take part
in fun activities and enjoy
local entertainment.
Teams from companies,


churches, organizations,
hospitals, and schools col-
lect donations and can win
individual and team prizes
for their efforts.
"Relay For Life brings the
progress against cancer to
the forefront," said Jennifer
Christensen, event chair.
"Many participants are our
family, friends, and neigh-
bors who have dealt with
cancer themselves. Their
involvement is proof of the
progress that has been not


only reducing death rates,
but also increasing the qual-
ity of life following cancer
treatment.
"The funds raised enable
us to continue our invest-
ment in the fight against
cancer through research,
education, advocacy, and
patient services," said Ms.
Christensen. "Thanks to
the generosity of corporate
sponsors like CHELCO,
the money raised by par-
ticipants goes directly to the


American Cancer Society's
lifesaving programs."
Information about how to
form a team or become in-
volved in Relay For Life is
available from the American
Cancer Society at (850) 244-
3813 ext. 116. For more in-
formation on cancer, call the

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


There's nothing quite like
putting your ignorance on
display for any and sundry
to read as I did in my last
column. No fewer than 10
nice people and one sriarky
one e-mailed me to inform
me of my faulty mathemati-
cal abilities. Mea culpa, mea
culpa, mea maxima culpa,
and I'm not even Catholic!
Yes, it turns out that 40
million times one million
is something more like 40
trillion. Who knew?.One of
the nice e-mails was from a
bookkeeper who said her of-
fice had also gotten the same
Internet missive and it took
all of them a bit of time to
snap to the faulty math.
That made me feel a lot bet-
ter about it all. Anyway,
thanks to all who wrote, it's
always nice to hear from
readers.
In other news from my
world, last week I was on
a sweepstakes quest. For
weeks I've been seeing this
commercial on CBS about
a colonoscopy sweepstakes.
At first I thought it was
some kind of joke, since Da-
vid Letterman's announcer
does the spots, but I went to
the Web site and found out
it was real and on a lark en-
tered the contest.
For those of us who never
win this type of thing, this
would indeed be a mixed
blessing. Oh yes, they fly
you to New York and put
you up in a swank New
York hotel, but you, also
have to get a colonoscopy,
which cannot be any fun, no
matter how celebrated the
physician. However, should
I win, there would be tons of
column fodder to come out of
it. I'm sure everybody that
enters is thinking, "This is
the one I'll win, because it
is so very bizarre and dubi-
ous."
I'm also trying to win a
trip to the Galapagos Is-
lands through 'Jeopardy!"
My passport is in order and
there will be 25 winners, so
the odds are slightly better.
This would be a sweet vic-
tory.
And finally, I have now
officially crossed over into
geezerdom. Oh, my. Each
day I'm home at the right
time I try to watch the net-,
work news at 5:30. As I
don't have access to 24-hour
news, this is the best I can
do for world news and even
as I realize network news is
not what it once was, it's all
I have, so I watch. Typically
I follow this with a half-hour
of local news and weather.
So there 1 am, comfort-
ably reclined in my very


nice chair, with a small dog
on my lap and a bigger dog
at my side. The news is over
and then "Wheel of Fortune"
is broadcast. As game shows
go, it's not bad, so I often
find myself watching it. Not
so much because I like it all
that much, it's more a case
of inertia. I'm already sit-
ting there and the television
is on.
I'm decent at solving the
puzzles and I noticed many
of the rounds allow the
home viewer a chance to
win something if they have
a Wheel Watchers numbers,
so I got one. What have I got
to lose? If your number is se-
lected, you can win cash or
a trip as long as you claim
it within 24 hours. While
I certainly won't go to the
trouble of taping it in case
I win, there's no harm in
having the number, even
though I feel slightly queasy
about it all and I'm stumped
as to why I feel that way.
I'm not a young person and
I'm certainly not as active
as many my age and older,
but it somehow seemed like
a defeat to put myself on
this list. I'll need to con-
template on this and see if
I can find out how a simple
act of admitting to watch-
ing one television program
can make one feel 20 years

Movie review

"State of Play" A Serviceable Thriller


By BRUCE COLLIER
A congressional aide dies
on a Washington, D.C. met-
ro track, a junkie is pursued
and shot dead in an alley,
and a passing eyewitness
- an innocent pizza deliv-
ery man is also murdered.
When the aide is determined
to have been the mistress of
a crusading congressman
investigating a corporation
that furnishes mercenary
muscle to the Department
of Defense, and the murders
appear to be the work of a
professional assassin, a pair
of diligent investigative re-
porters get in on the game.
Kevin MacDonald's "State
of Play" may be 1bised, loose-
ly or not, on a BBC series.
All I know about the series is
that some of the characters'
names are the same as some
of those in the film. Russell
Crowe stars as Cal McAf-
frey, a maverick reporter for
a feisty Washington daily,
edited by feisty Cameron
Lynne (Helen Mirren), with
hey-I'm-feisty-too cub blog-
writer Della Frye (Rachel
McAdams) also on staff.
The paper has been pur-
chased by Some Big Corpo-
ration, which wants more
sales and to heck with seri-
ous reporting. Cal is of the
old school, a beat-pounding,
source-cultivating muckrak-
er with ink in his veins. He
dislikes online journalism
and those who practice it.
The congressman, Rep. Ste-
phen Collins (Ben Affleck,
looking no doubt intention-
ally like a young JFK), was
Cal's buddy in college, so Cal
is feeling conflicted about
ripping into his friend's
reputation. That, and Cal
still carries a wee torch for
Mrs. Collins (Robin Wright
Penn).
Nevertheless, Cal and Del-
la agree to follow the story

Local celebration



raises cash for Sacred



Heart's Suzy Fund


When local residents Jan
Stanko and Donna Johns
met each other at chemo-
therapy, they formed a bond
not only between them-
selves but also with other
people receiving treatment.
It was only fitting that they
would want to celebrate var-
ious milestones'together and
for the first they wanted to
invite some of their friends
to help them celebrate being
"cancer-free." When Harriet
Crommelin, owner of Caf6'


Thirty-A, heard of the cel-
ebration, she offered to host
the event.
The event, which was
held on a Tuesday evening,
was called "Think Pink
Party," and was in honor
of Stanko and Johns com-
pleting their cancer treat-
ments. Caf6 Thirty-A in-
vented a new drink for the
occasion, a "Pinkitini," and
donated a portion of the pro-
ceeds to the Suzy Fund at
Sacred Heart Hospital on


the Emerald Coast. Several
of the attendees donated to
the fund as well, and a total
of $350 was presented to the
Sacred Heart Foundation
for the Fund.

The Suzy Fund provides
free mammograms to local
women who could not other-
wise afford them. For more
information about the Suzy
Fund or the Olsen's Wom-
ens Diagnostic Center, call

PLANNING CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


process is a long process de-
manded by the state every
seven years. The planning
department has been work-
ing on EAR issues since late
last year and the process is
still months from comple-
tion, even though the report
was due in February.
Also coming under Black-
shear's purview will be re-
vising the comprehensive
plan-and the land develop-
ment code (LDC), writing
land use ordinances and
participation in the techni-
cal coordination committee
of the transportation plan-
ning organization (TPO) and
other local regional commit-
tees, according to Williams.
The engineers and en-
vironmental planners, for-
merly housed in the court-
house annex, have all been
moved to DeFuniak Springs
and now come under the di-
rection of the head of public
works. Of the reorganization
and relocation, Williams
said, "We project to save at
least 20 percent by having
some of the engineering and


environmental work done
in-house in lieu of farming
it out to consultants."
Williams said at this time
there have been no layoffs
in the planning department,
although they have experi-
enced the loss of one person
in environmental services.
She did not elaborate on the
reason for the force reduc-
tion.
For some time the county
has provided a van for coun-
ty workers who live in the
north end of the county but
work in the south end to get
to and from work. The coun-
ty annually pays $3,935 to
fuel, maintain, and repair
the commuting vehicle.


"At this time the county
has a van that some of the
employees use to carpool
from north to south. This'
will be looked at in the next
budget year to see if there
will be enough savings to
warrant discontinuing it.
We are now using a car in-
stead of a van. It is free to
the employees. There will
not be a van/car running
from south to north. So far
there has not been.a need
for it," Williams said.
As the county faces a sig-
nificant shortfall in revenue
this year, county adminis-
trators are looking at a vari-
ety of ways to trim the bud-
get.


wherever it leads, and in the
process learn to trust and
respect one another and
blow a major military/indus-
trial conspiracy sky-high, of
course. The plot twists and
turns, with lots of close-ups,
frantic scrambles down dark
hallways, clandestine inter-
views in parking garages
and motels, and a fragrant
slice of D.C. high- and low-
lifes, notably Jeff Daniels
as a party powerbroker and
Jason Bateman as a press
agent who's in way over his
head.
It's good, it holds the in-
terest. Crowe, Mirren and
McAdams all turn in quality
work. It just reminded me
of something else. Maybe it
all seemed like just another
episode of a well-madeTV
show, the kind you watch
and say, "That was pretty
good. Wonder what they'll
be up to next week?" I have
never watched the BBC se-
ries, but thrillers of this kind
follow a formula. Aside from
the final twist-on-all-twists,
"State of Play" is fairly pre-
dictable.
I'm a -little puzzled why
Crowe took this part. Or-
dinarily, one can count on
about one Russell Crowe
film a year, usually some-
thing heavy and meaning-
ful, frequently in another
time period, often Oscar-
nominated. Last year he
did "Body of Lies," playing


a pudgy CIA spymaster to
Leonardo DiCaprio's tor-
mented field agent. He's re-
portedly playing the Sheriff
of Nottingham in an upcom-
ing revisionist tale about
Robin Hood. Aside from
providing a chance to polish
his neutral American ac-
cent (he sounds sort of Mid-
western, with an occasional
Yankee vowel thrown in),
Cal McAffrey isn't the sort
of role a choosy fellow like
Crowe is likely to pick. The
part is very much an Ameri-
can archetype the tough-
minded investigative jour-
nalist whose integrity can't
be compromised. It could
easily have been played by
an American actor, say, Mi-
chael Keaton, Denzel Wash-
ington or Edward Norton.
Maybe it was the chance
to work with fellow Oscar
club member Mirren (who
sports an unashamed British
accent as the editor). Maybe
Crowe and Affleck (shared
Oscar for best screenplay,
1997) are real-life buddies
despite the eight-year dif-
ference in their ages.
In any event, "State of
Play" is a serviceable thrill-
er, the kind you don't regret
having paid to see at the
theater, but also the kind
you could have waited to
come to the rental gallery.

22nd season in grand fash-
ion as more than 200 instru-
mentalists and vocalists join
together to perform Franz
Josef Haydn's oratorio "The
Creation" on May 9 at 7:30

- it is a wonderful cross-
cultural opportunity for our
symphony and chorus," said
Jeffrey Rink, NFSO conduc-
tor and music director.
iiRink noted that Haydn's
Creation, : completed in
1799, is perhaps his great-
est work and vividly depicts
the events described in the
biblical text of Genesis.
"From the opening orches-
tral sounds of Chaos until
the final triumphant chorus
praising God for all he has
created, Haydn's work is
one of spiritual optimism.
In it we hear the composer's
musical realizations of a
sunrise, the sounds of great.
whales,, birds, lions and
tigers and even the lowly
worm," said Rink. The per-
formance will be sung in an
English translation done by
the late Robert Shaw.
Tickets are now available
from the Mattie Kelly Arts
Center box office for $22.50
each for adults and $16 each

er. Tickets are available in

ticket per valid student ID,

only.
The Tokyo Oratorio So-
ciety was founded in 1983
by Hiroshi Gunji to study
and perform classical sacred
music, especially Oratorio
works. The choir's repertoire
includes work by Bach, Han-
del, Haydn, Mozart, Schu-
bert, Mendelssohn, Brahms,
Verdi, Mahler, Britten and
Stravinsky. The 50-member
Tokyo Oratorio Society has
performed in more than 60
international tours and has
sung under of the baton of
renowned conductors world-
wide.
Joining the orchestra and
combined choruses for the
concert will be three out-
standing soloists; soprano
Jane Redding, tenor Adam
Kirkpatrick and bass Rob-
ert Honeysucker all under
the direction of NFSO music
director Jeffrey Rink.
Redding is the recipient
of numerous awards, in-


cluding a national winner
in the coveted MacAllister
Awards. Kirkpatrick is the
recipient of several awards
and represented the U.S.
in the Seoul International
Voice Competition in 200,7.
Honeysucker was honored
as the 1995 "Musician of the
Year" by Boston Globe critic'
Richard Dyer, and has also
been a winner of the Nation-
al Opera Association Artists
Competition and a recipient
of the New England Opera
Club Jacopo Peri Award.


Established in 1987, the

.The WSBZ Seabreeze
Jazz Festival sa w record-
breaking attendance and
ticket sales for the
annual event that took
place this past weekend
at Pier Park in Panama
City Beach. It also has
found a new home that
thousands, will be
flocking to in 2010, for
another great weekend
of smooth, Grammy
a ward- winning jazz.
--------------------------------------
After 11 years, and
calling many locations in
Walton County home, the
Seabreeze, Jazz Festival
finally settled into a venue
where there was plenty of
room to stage the event,
and much more room to
grow. Since 1998, Walton
County had hosted the
festival, and saw more than
5,000 people each day of
the three-day event,
fighting over parking
spaces, accommodations
and tickets.
But Pier Park had
sprawling acres of grass
lawns, more than ample
parking and thousands of
hotel rooms, condos and
homes that people. rented
for the weekend. Many
simply walked from the
accommodations to the
festival, while others drove
and parked, across the road
at the Pier Park parking
lot.

Thursday evening,
aboard the Solaris Dinner
Cruise that made its
voyage from Sandestin to
the Panama City Bay Point
Marina, it was an evening
on the bay, with attendees
serenaded by keyboardist
Nick Colionne. Playing to a
sold-out crowd, people
wined and dined, and many
got their first glimpse of
the Panama City and
Panama City, Beach
shoreline.
Friday,.more than 400


crowded into Borders Books
at the Pier Park Mall for a
chance to meet their
favorite jazz musicians
including Alex Bugnon,
Jackiem Joyner and Matt
Marshack. Then it was off
to a 5 p.m. open gate call
where more than 4,000
crowded the Aaron Bessant
Park (Pier Park event
venue) to hear
performances featuring the
Urban Jazz Coalitiori, Nick
Colionne, a Four80West,
Alex Bugnon, Brian
Simpson, Shilts, NILS,
Matt Marshak, Althea
Rene and Jackiem Joyner.
Saturday, more
than 6,000 crowded onto
the Aaron Bassant Park to
hear more than 10 hours of
smooth jazz by such artists
as Althea Renee, Eric
Darius, The Seabreeze
Groove Project, Joyce
Cooling, Will Dowling and

GUITARIST JOYCE

on their feet during, her
Saturday performance.
This was her seventh time
at the Seabreeze Jazz

Wayman Tisdale. During
the performers sets, the
crowds were able to take a
stroll through the food
court, register for vacation,
drawings, or just browse
the more than 50
international vendors at
the Hilltop Productions
International Artists
Market.

The final day, another
6,000 smooth jazz fans
poured onto the field to
hear another eight hours of
music that included
performances by Jones and
Company, Roman Street,
Brian Simpson, NILS,
Jackiem Joyner, Warren
Hill, Nick Colionne and the
finale with Boney James.
Each evening at the
conclusion of the concerts,
some of the same artists
entertained once again for
sold-out crowds at the after
parties that took place at
Reggae J's, located in Pier
Park. It gave fans, if they
could find a ticket, a chance
to talk one-on-one with
their favorite smooth jazz
musician.

In surveys that were
taken during the three-day
event, hundreds were
asked and interviewed
about what they thought of
the new location, and how
they felt about seeing it in
Bay County after being in
Walton County for so many
years. Many said they
didn't mind the extra drive
from Pensacola to Panama
City, and for the most part
didn't know they were in


another county. Others said
That with the great
accommodations, the
convenience of the venue to
the thousands of hotel
rooms and condos, the
convenient parking and the
massive size of the venue,
they loved the. festival's
new home.
"This was the best place
this festival has ever called
home and it should have
been here five years ago as
soon as the park was
opened," said Willie Myers
of Baltimore, MD.
"I cannot believe the
amount of room that we
have to even breath, and
even more the room we
have to spread out to enjoy'
this music," said Aziz
Barrett from New York.
Tickets were sold to
ticket holders in more than
40 states and in 12
different countries. It is the
first time an event such as


the Seabreeze Jazz
Festival has ever taken
place in Bay County and
the city and the county are
opening their arms for next
year's event that will take
place April 15-19.
I had a chance to speak
to several of the
performers at the condo, at
the after-parties and
behind stage, and their
sentiments were the same
as their fans.
"This place is amazing
and with its size, there are
many more years of growth
for the event," commented.
guitarist Joyce Cooling,
while we shared an
elevator ride down to the
event.
"This place rocks, pal,"
was the simple but hard-
hitting statement made by
former NBA basketball
player turned jazz bass
player, Wayman Tisdale,
after his set on Saturday
evening.

The Seabreeze Jazz
Festival is now considered
one of the top three jazz
festivals in the nation and
has quickly shot to the top
of performers' favorite
places :to perform in the
world. It is the hope of the
WSBZ 106.3 radio station,

the event organizer, and
partners like Hilltop
Productions, Pro-Tech
Sound and Lighting, H &
M Tent and Party Rentals,
among others, that the
Pier Park, Aaron Bessant
venue will remain the
home of the Seabreeze Jazz
Festival for years to come.
Tickets for the 2010
festival go on sale June 1,
and people are already
booking their
accommodations for the
event that has reshaped
entertainment on the
Emerald Coast.

for the four-day event.

Imagine... A place where you can create your own space... A place where neighbors and friends are
one and the same... Now that place has a name... Sawmill Court... A subdivision that will become the
place to live in North Walton County. This is not just another development; it is a community where
the amenities of the South Walton developments are offered to the North Walton buyer for the first
time. You might want to take a walk to the neighbor's house or just sit in your beautifully landscaped
yard and listen to the wind blow. You will take comfort in the fact that this is an exclusive subdivision
with covenants and restrictions enforced by a home owners association to protect the integrity of your
investment. There will be a playground for the younger children and a full size basketball court for the
older children of all ages. Only 10 minutes from Hwy 331 in DeFuniak Springs but an oasis from the
hustle and bustle of urban living. "Mayberry" might have been a better name for this neighborhood.
Come and make your home where everyone wants to be.

beginning to take shape, the landscape design is in its infancy,

and will continue to expand. We are proud to have new

homeowners enjoying all that Hunters Ridge has to offer. Our

construction of new homes reflect the history of architecture in

North Walton County. We are focused on blending the old with

new, greener building practices and the results are pretty

exciting.


If you haven't driven down Walton Road in a while, we invite

you to come by. Check out the magnificent Walton High

School, and just behind it you'll find Hunters Ridge.

through Sandestin.
Beam said she and other
homeowners believe their
deeds indicate them to be
Sandestin property owners.
Many parts of the Driftwood
Estates property were in-
cluded in the original ap-
proved Sandestin develop-
ment of regional impact
(DRI) plan.
Beam asserted that rights
on the deeds in question
designate the road where
the wall now stands as an
easemrent for the use'of the
owners. She added that
Burke had agreed to ask the
Sandestin homeowners as-
sociation why the Driftwood
owners should not be pro-
vided with access through
the easement.
Burke made no comment
but did not contradict the
update that Beam had pro-
vided.
Next to address Driftwood
matters was Allen Brown,
Walton County deputy pub-
lic works director. Brown
requested approval of an
approximate $5,094 expen-
diture for materials to retro-
fit roadside ditches running
along East Shipwreck Road
in the subdivision, with la-
bor to be provided by county
staff. Brown did not dispute
that the ditches were work-
ing as designed by county
engineering staff.
However, he said pub-
lic works had identified a
pedestrian safety problem,
from their standpoint, with
the level of standing water
in the ditches, particularly
in view of the new Driftwood
Estates county park project,
which had been designed for
community walkability.
Of engineering options
provided at Brown's re-
quest, he recommended fill-
ing in part of the ditches or
swaless" and adding "pop-up
pipes" to, convey water out,
with the aim of improving
safety and giving pedestri-
ans more room to walk.
"There is no way water
can perk," Doris Beam said
of the current situation with
the ditches, "you're below
the water level." Beam add-
ed that water was standing
four or five feet deep in some
of the swales.
"It's a health hazard, its a
safety hazard...my property
has been devalued," agreed
Shipwreck Road resident
Sherry King.
The BCC put off consid-
eration of Brown's request


to hear comments from
Greater Driftwood Estates
Homeowners' Association
spokesman Alan Osborne,
who represents 170 owners.
In recent years the ho-
meowners' association has
been in contact with the
state Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA), urg-
ing that the department to
mandate the reopening of
the second access road to
the subdivision and address
alleged violations in connec-
tion with the DRI associated
with the property.
Osborne said he had been
perplexed as to why the
DCA had not provided any
enforcement but that he be-
lieved he might now have an
answer to that question.
He said he had learned
the law firm of current DCA
director Thomas Pelham,
appointed in January 2007,
had formerly served as
counsel to Walton County
and that' the director had
also represented Sandestin
in 2002, when a notice of
proposed change (NOPC) to
the Sandestin DRI was pre-
sented. The Driftwood hom-
eowners ,had raised objec-
tions with DCA regarding
the NOPC in 2007.
"I've been appealing (the
NOPC) to the guy who pre-
sented it for the developer...
this is a conflict," Osborne
complained.
Attorney Burke respond-
ed that bringing this matter
before the commissioners
was not fair, since the BCC
has no control over DCA.
Osborne also presented
documentation that 77 lots
in the Driftwood subdivision
had come under the partial
ownership of CWJ Hold-
ings, Inc., in 2006. He also
provided evidence from the
Florida Department of State
Division of Corporations
showing that an officer/di-
rector of CWJ, C. Wayne
Jones, also serves as a man-
ager with another company,
Freeport Group, iL.L.C.; for
which Scott Brannon is also
listed as manager. Brannon,
county commissioner for
District 1, left the room soon
after Osborne began to pres-
ent these documents.
Brannon had not disclosed
the association or recused
himself from consideration
of any matters regarding
Driftwood Estates. Osborne
raised ethics questions in
that regard, quoting a por-
tion of the Florida Statutes

section on voting conflicts
stating, in part, that no
elected county public officer
"shall vote in an official ca-
pacity upon any measure...
which he oi she knows
would inure to the special
private gain or loss of a rela-
tive or business associate of
the public officer."
Other than the absence of
disclosure and recusal with
regard to Driftwood Estates,
Osborne did not raise the
possibility of any alleged
misconduct or deficiencies
on the part of Brannon.
Burke and County Com-
mission Chair Sara Co-
mander objected to Os-
borne's statements, saying
that the BCC meeting was
not the proper forum.
Burke commented that it
is each commissioner's in-
dividual decision whether
it is appropriate for him to
participate or refrain from
participating in the consid-
eration of any item.
"You know the appropri-
ate place to take this is the
ethics commission," he add-
ed.
Osborne said he had been
in contact with the Florida
Commission on Ethics but
that he had not filed a com-
plaint at the time.
'"As of today, you're
aware," he told the com-
missioners. "I've had my
rights taken from me, in my
opinion," he concluded, as
his allotted time to speak
elapsed.
After a long recess, the
commissioners returned
to again look at the public
works proposal for "shallow-
ing up" the East Shipwreck
Road ditches.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones was reluctant
to proceed with the plan
without looking at other op-
tions.
District 2 Commissioner
Ken Pridgen was most con-
cerned about the safety in
connection with the swales.
He moved to direct public
works to address that is-
sue, and his motion was ap-
proved. The commissioners
also asked staff to research
a more complete solution
,to drainage problems and
bring back information, with
that concluding commission
discussion of the Driftwood
subdivision for the evening.

Cataloochee




Valley:



A sight that's worth the ride


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Great Smoky Moun-
tains National Park, nestled
on the Tennessee-North
Carolina border, has been
called one of the most di-
verse biospheres on Earth.
Within the park's bound-
aries there are more tree
species than in northern
Europe. Over 1,500 flower-
ing plants, dozens of native
fish, 200 species of birds and
60 mammals call the area
home.
Equally diverse are the
many sites to see within the
park. Thousands of people
have visited Cade's Cove
on the Tennessee side of
the park and many more
have traveled to Clingman's
Dome, which lies on the
Tennessee-North Carolina
border and overlooks the an-
cient mountain range. Few-
er people, though, have vis-
ited the.Cataloochee Valley
on the eastern edge of the
park. The reason for the dis-
crepancy of visitors is easy
to figure out. Cataloochee
Valley is a remote area, and
getting there is something
of a challenge.
The most direct route
to the valley follows an old
Indian foot trail over Cata-
loocheee Divide on 11 miles
of hairpin turns that at times


can be harrowing. Upon en-
tering the valley, visitors
will see a serene environ-
ment little changed since
pioneer times. Many of the
old home places, barns and
a church have been meticu-
lously preserved by the park
service and can be toured at
the visitor's leisure.
A primary mission of the
National Park Service (NPS)
is to preserve the naturally-
occurring native plant and
animal life on the land it
manages. In some cases,
the NPS may reintroduce a
species that has been elimi-
nated from the area.
In 2001, the NPS im-
ported 25 elk from Land Be-
tween the Lakes Recreation Area along the
Tennessee-Kentuckey bor-
der. The endeavor is an ef-
fort to replace the animals
that once roamed the south-
ern Appalachian Mountains
and elsewhere in the east-
ern United States. Another
27 elk were brought in the
next year. The last natu-
rally-occurring elk in North
Carolina was killed in the
late 1700s.
The best time to view elk
is the early morning or late
afternoon. It is not uncom-\
mon to see 20 or 30 animals
at a time while they feed in

loochee Valley. Visitors are
urged to keep their distance
from the creatures as they
can become defensive, espe-
cially if there are young ani-
mals near-by.
Despite the efforts one
must take to get there, Cat-
aloochee Valley is a sight
worth the ride.

NWF State College presents


"Dance Facets 2009"


Northwest Florida State
College's Humanities, Fine
and Performing Arts Divi-
sion dance program presents
Dance Facets 2009 on April
24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the
Mattie Kelly Arts Center
on the NWF State College
Niceville campus. The col-
lege's annual dance perfor-
mance offers an evening of
beauty and grace featuring
an eclectic array of musical
styles, including Third Day,
Richard Strauss, Usher, and
Maya Angelou that lend in-
spiration for the original
choreography presented by
NWF State College dance
students and faculty.
Tickets are available
now for $15 adults and $10
youth. All proceeds go to
support the Frances Smith
Herron Dance Endowment.
The endowment named the


NWF State College Dance
Studio in memory of the late
Frances Herron, OWC dance
instructor, who passed away
in August 2006, and funds
dance scholarships, distin-
guished visiting artists and
enhances Dance Facets pro-
ductions.
Twenty-eight dancers will
perform eight original dance
presentations featuring con-
temporary ballet, modern,
jazz, and tap. The visual and
audible movement on stage
will be enhanced by special
lighting effects designed by
NWF State College students
and staff. The synergistic ef-
fect of dramatic music, ethe-
real lighting and emotional
dance culminates to pres-
ent artistic interpretations
about social realities as well
as farcical fantasies.
Audiences can expect


to be energized and enter-
tained with dance segments
entitled: DDR, Revelation,
Compassion, Got to Get You
- Gotcha!, Who I Am, Rain,
Sea of Love, and Le Bour-
geois Gentilhomme.
