Peters said that 'the tar-
get date for completion of

DeFuniak Springs Planning Board undergoing changes


By ALICIA LEONARD
With the DeFuniak
Springs City Council's ap-
proval of the new Arbours
at Shoemaker dividing the
opinions of many in the com-
munity, two members have
resigned their positions on
the planning board, in pro-
test and frustration, they
say.
Prior planning board
members Kermit Wright


and Don Truitt both re-
signed their positions after
the Council's approval of the
building project. Wright's
resignation letter was dated'
Jan. 15 and Truitt resigned
in person, a few minutes be-
fore the last planning board,
meeting on Feb. 1 was sched-
uled to begin. Both men said
they we're unhappy with
the- Council's decision on
the property and with un-


sought legal advice given to
them, advising them against
speaking as a private citizen
at a public Council meeting.
Wright wrote in his resigna-
tion that he believed "chang-
es must b4 made in the
planning department, the
City Council, the City Attor-
ney and the City Manager's
office to insure the citizens
of DeFuniak Springs receive
the representation they de-


DEFUNIAK SPRINGS MAYOR Harold Carpenter presented Kermit Wright with a cer-
tificate of appreciation for his almost five years of service with the DeFuniak Springs Plan-
ning Board after his recent resignation over the controversial Arbours at Shoemaker devel-
opment approval.


serve. To facilitate the nec-
essary changes, I will ei-
ther. run for Councilman or
Mayor in 2011.'" Truitt told
the Herald that he would.
be willing to come back and
serve on the planning board,'
but he felt like there needed
to be personnel changes at
the City Council level, as
well, before he would recon-
sider.
Truitt said he was frus-
trated over the way the is-
sue was handled with the
project development and
felt that neither the board
nor citizens were listened
to. "We are all volunteers
that serve on the planning
board. I just don't like the
way all of this was handled.
We were put there to help
the public, but it is a waste
of the people's time if they
are told what to do. I was
there to help the public, but
I feel like my hands are tied
by the book [code]. I felt we
were being 'told we have to
rubber stamp anything that
comes through. The plan-
ning department and the
legal department tell us we
should approve or deny now?
Why are we even there, if we
can't make decisions for our
community? They are 'even
saying, now, that we could
no longer go out and look
at a piece of property before
we vote. That's wrong," said
Truitt.


Wright did attend the
Feb. 1 planning board meet-
ing and agreed with Truitt's
thoughts on the city's legal
representatives' (Adkinson
Law Firm) advice on not
visiting sites before voting.
"How is anyone supposed to
have any idea on what they
are voting on? That's not
right."
Clay Adkinson, acting as
legal counsel for the city,
spoke with the remaining
members of the planning
board during the last part of
the the Feb. 1 meeting. He
said, "As we grow and evolve
as a city and a community,
we are going to experience
some of those growing pains
that cities experience. Issues
that come up. frequently on
planning boards, questions
that planning board mem-
bers might have, are always
. welcomed by our office. You
will be faced with situa-
tions when you live next to
or work with someone who
has an issue that comes in
front of the board. Issues
with developments in your
neighborhood or our fam-
ily's neighborhood and we
are there to discuss those
issues with you and to help
guide you to make sound de-
cisions based on real, solid,
evidence."

Will you walk the Labyrinth this year?


Submitted by
MELINDA C.
HENDERSON, PhD

Last February a canvas
labyrinth was placed in
the First United Method-
ist Church parking lot as
a "real life" example of the .
content delivered by one of
the Chautauqua speakers.
Hundreds of people walked
the labyrinth, watched oth-
ers 'walk it, came by and
inspected it or picked up
printed materials about it.
Two of the primary grades
at the Baptist elementary
school came over and walked
and played on the labyrinth.
Were you there?
The Labyrinth is a
4,000-year-old tool. that al-'
lows us to go on pilgrim-
age. Labyrinths are found
in many faith traditions, in
many countries, on private
property, in public parks
and in many forms.. Some,
intended strictly for quiet
individual meditation- and


relaxation, can be traced
'by your finger on paper or
wood. Others are designed
to be walked, a more physi-
cal form "of recreation -or
meditation that can be in-
dividual or communal. Un-
like mazes, which are de-
signid to create confusion
and a sense of being lost,
labyrinths are designed to
assist us to find the way to
the center or the core and
then to help us return to
the entry point. They sym-
bolize the path of the soul
through.life. As a metaphor
for one's spiritual journey,
which seems to be shared
by Muslim, Jew, Buddhist,
Christian, Native Ameri-
can, agnostic or atheist, the
labyrinth has reemerged as
a powerful tool for transfor-,
mation. The labyrinth can
irnspire change in individu-
als and communities.
The best known and stud-
ied example of an 11-circuit
labyrinth, the type designed
'for walking recreation and
j .: ,*? .. ' . ^ *


meditation, is embedded in
the floor of Chartres Cathe-
dral in France. It may have
been used as a substitute for
pilgrimage to the holy land.
Local copies of this form
of labyrinth can be found
at Troy State University,
Audabon Park in New Or-
leans, Resurrection Catholic
Church in Miramar Beach,
Weatherly Heights Baptist
Church, The Mental Health
Center and The National
Children's Advocacy Center,
all in Huntsville, and Na-
tivity Episcopal Church in
Dothan. There are five laby-
rinths at Johns Hopkins Hos-
pital in Maryland and one at
the Guggenheim Museum
in New York. Based on the
circle, the universal symbol
for unity and wholeness, the
labyrinth sparks the human
imagination. It reminds one
of the time when there were
not so many splits between
reason and imagination,
thought and feeling, psyche
and spirit.


The labyrinth can intro-
duce the concepts of walk-.
ing meditation and of life
pilgrimage to people who
would not ordinarily dark-
en the doors of a church, to
the spiritually mature, the
emotionally troubled, the
mentally challenged .and to
children. We do not know
why or how this archetype
of life's journey works. We
do know that it is a profound
tool for re-creation,- heal-
ing and stress relief. It has
been successfully utilized as
one form of therapy for sex-
ually abused .children, for
veterans suffering from post
-traumatic. stress syndrome,
for cancer patients and for
women in labor.. The use
of a "physical" tool, in addi-
tion to, or in the place of, the
"spoken word," has consis-
tently proven to foster heal-
ing where the spoken word
alone cannot.
Public and private sec-
tors are mutually depen-
dent upon each other and


need to interact in more cre-
ative ways. While munici-
pal workers such as animal
shelter workers, firemeni
and policemen may use a
labyrinth for stress relief,'
private groups may use it 'as
a recreational walking tool,
while still others may use it
for therapy, for meditation'
or for prayer. Last April
our City Council heard a
presentation on labyrinths
and received support letters
from 37 of the civic and com-
munity organizations of our
area, from individuals and
from the churches .in the
immediate, downtown area
(representing hundreds of,
people in favor of the. proj-
ect). The request was to seek
Parks and Recreation fund-
ing from the state of Flori-
da to create a labyrinth in
Chipley Park near the east
intersection of Main Street
and Circle Drive. In spite
of the fact that parks and
recreation projects were the
only ones with broad com-


munity support (not only
for the labyrinth but also
for a swimming pool and for
a skate board park), parks
and recreation was not cho-
sen as one of the Cities' 10
priorities for 2010. If such
projects continue to receive
community support perhaps
they will have a chance to
rank in the top 10 city proj-
ects for 2011.

If you would like to know
more about labyrinths and/
or to experience walking a
labyrinth please join us on
Feb.- 19 and 20 from 1- 4
p.m. at the east intersection
of Main Street and Circle
Drive. The Daughters of
the King from St. Agatha's
Episcopal Church will be
available to answer ques-.
tions and assist you to walk
a white and .purple canvas
labyrinth which will be pro-
vided to the Chautauqua
Assembly by the Episcopal
Diocese of the Central Gulf
Coast.

4-H members test battery-operated cycle


By JEFFREY POWELL
Friday afternoon snow
flurries gave way to a beau-
tiful Saturday morning just
in time for a group of 4-H
Club members to test ride
their latest project. The 4-H
Technology and Robotics
club met at the DeFuniak
Springs Police. Department
(DFSPD) and were escort-
ed to the airport by several
members of the department


so that the test could be ex-
ecuted on a closed course.'
Approximately one year
ago the group recieved 'a
grant from the University of
Florida to explore the feasi-
bility of creating a battery-
operated vehicle. The group
then purchased a $300 bro-
ken-down Yamaha 250 as
the platform for the experi-
ment.
S. "This has been an amaz-


ing process," said Extension
Agent III, 4-H Youth Devel-
opment Representative Su-
zanne Wilson. "From taking
an idea and putting it on pa-
per, preparing a budget, se-
curing materials, engineer-
ing the bike and building
the project. This exercise
truly follows the 4-H motto
of 'learn by doing."'
The cycle was construct-
ed with the assistance of


County Extension Director
Bruce Ward and other coun-
ty agencies but most of the
work was completed by 4-H
adult leader Marvin Tweedy
and the 4-H members. The
group removed the old gaso-
line engine and installed
several gel cell batteries for
power, According to Tweedy
the cycle can be fully charged
in about two hours. After the
successful test ride Tweedy


WHS Key Club donates to Haitian relief


was obviously pleased with
the results.
"We wanted to exceed 45.
miles per hour and we did
that." Tweedy said enthu-
siastically. "It was inter-
esting to. see how the bike
performed, today's test was
definitely a success."
The next step in the de-
velopment of the vehicle will
be an endurance test which
will also be monitored by
the DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice Department. During
that test Tweedy will try to
see how long the cycle will
run at 20 mph. DFSPD Lt.
Christopher Strawn was on


hand for Saturday's test and
"feels that supporting the
group can, help bring posi-
tive results into the lives of
young people.
"Helping the 4-H just
makes good sense in support-
ing the youth in DeFuniak
Springs," said Strawn. "We
want to encourage the youth
in our community to partici-
pate in groups such as 4-H
where they receive all the,
chances in learning skills
and behaviors which pro-
niote qualities such as re-
sponsibility, leadership, and
critical thinking that could
better their lives."

Editorial Comment


"Brain-dead



partisan-



ship"


By BRUCE COLLIER
The title of this editorial comes from a quote recently
made by Senator Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), who has announced
his intention not to seek re-election to a third term in the
U.S. Senate. If you know" anything about Indiana .politics,
you know that the name Bayh carries the same political
cachet in the HooSier State that Byrd carries in Virginia
and Taft and Kennedy used to carry in Ohio and Massa-
chusetts. Bayh's father Birch was a perennial presidential
hopeful in the '60s and '70s, and Evan Bayh last month ex-
pressed confidence that he would win re-election. Given the
fact that he was governor of Indiana for two terms and has
never lost an,election, he's not just blowing smoke. Still,
Bayh is walking away. Why?
Could be he's preparing for a shot at the presidency, a
project he began studying-in 2008 before deferring to Hil-
lary Clinton. Or could it be thqt Bayh has taken to heart a
recent CBS News-New York Times poll citing-a 75-percent'
disapproval'rate for Congress? That is being paired with
another poll that expresses a near-identical "dissatisfac-
tion" rate (73 percent) with the direction the country is tak-
ing. ,
Naturally the country's ranking Democrats, from Presi-
dent Obama to the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
have been concerned. Unnamed sources say that Obama at-
tempted to persuade Bayh to reconsider. Reid is making the
best of it, expressing regretful best wishes and moving on
the really important job getting another Democrat in that
seat. In fairness, the Republicans ate behaving in a similar
.".fashion. They smell blood nationwide, and are looking for
one of their own to fill Bayh's vacant desk. Pundits are sug-
gesting that the G.O.P. may actually be able to achieve its
master plan getting a controlling majority in Congress, of
course.
Insert "brain-dead partisanship" comment here. Bayh
also added "...and not enough progress." Anyone coming
from a governor's job (the executive branch) to a senator's
job (the legislative branch) must get that feeling more or
less daily. What is curious is that what Senator Bayh real-
izes, and what all those folks that responded to the above
polls realize, seems to have eluded the leaders of the Re-
publican and Democratic parties. To paraphrase former
President Bill Clinton, "it's the gridlock, stupid!"
The "direction" the country is taking, the one that those
73 percent aren't happy with, is the same direction a dog
takes when he sees his tail wagging in his face. "Yes We
Can" has been transformed into "No They Won't." Our two
leading political parties remain in thrall to their extreme
wings, both blindly insisting that theirs is the true politi-
cal religion. Every time a moderate or bipartisan-minded
lawmaker gets fed up and walks away, the party response
is not, "do we need to reconsider the way. we do things?" It's
"how do we hang on to that seat?"
You'd think that those ugly poll numbers (reportedly the
lowest congressional disapproval rate since 1992 a life-
time in Washington years) would shake something loose.
Both parties employ ridiculously overpaid experts to moni-
tor the voter pulse what can they be recommending? More
of the same, it seems. If it's not possible to get elected to
Congress except by slavishly toeing a party line, that's bad.
Once elected, if it's not possible to get anything done for the
same reason, that's not just bad, that's disgraceful.
Are they not listening, or are we just not talking? Both,
I'd guess. I bet they're talking in Indianapolis, though, and
not just about losing the Super Bowl.

Editor,
Subject: Health Care Reform
Many people in Washington are trying to delay or give
up health care reform, but I am asking you to consider the
realities of our situation. A new study shows that health
care spending has risen an estimated $2.5-trillion in 2009
and is now over $8,000 per person.
This burden will create more lost jobs, more families in
bankruptcy, and more crushing debt. We cannot continue
to go on this way. Something must be done. T stand with
those who want Congress to finish the job. Surely they are
smart enough that they can get over partisan politics and
save us from disaster.
I work in a community mental health facility in a small
community. I meet desperate people every day, who do not
receive the health care they need. Help encourage the U.S.,
Government to help them and all of us.

Editor:
The primary road connecting north and south Walton
County is U.S. Highway 331. This major highway is a two-
lane road that causes various safety and economical issues
for the people of Walton County. I support and highly en-
courage: the widening of U.S. Highway 331 from Interstate
10 to the Choctawhatchee Bay. It is a much needed project
for the citizens of Walton County and deservea-the utmost
priority...
SCtrrehtly, the maximum service volume for the road is
690 vehicles per hour. In 2005, the Florida Department of
'Transportation measured 770 vehicles per hour on U.S. 331.
The excessive number of vehicles traveling U.S. 331 causes
safety issues for commuters traveling the road. By making
U.S. 331 four lanes it would increase the maximum service
volume for the road, ultimately making the road safer.
As it stands today, a business cannot reside along U.S
331. This is because a business would attract more traffic,
which the. current maximum service volume cannot handle.
If U.S 331 was widened into four lanes, the maximum ser-
vice volume number would increase, therefore allowing eco-
nomic growth along U.S. 331. In this economic time of need,
economic-growth means more job opportunities.for citizens
of Walton County.
Realistically, the widening of U.S. 331 from Interstate 10
to the Choctawhatchee Bay cannot happen all at once. For
that reason, a compromise has to be made where Walton
County can divide U.S. 331 into different parts. By complet-'
ing one part at a time, eventually all of U.S. 331 throughout
Walton County will be a four lane highway.
Everyone loves the idea of safer roads and more jobs for
Walton County. The only question that remains is: where is
the money? It has been noted that this project is supported
by organizations like the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation and The Chamber and Economic Development Alli-
ance.'With the help of these organizations, U.S. 331 can be
widened to ensure safety and economic growth for the citi-
zens of Walton County.
Sincerely,
Betsy Stevenson
DeFuniak Springs


Editor:
. Why is Scott Brown a junior senator? I thought we elect-
ed senators and representatives, so who gave them the ad-
ditional rank of junior or senior? Are they not supposed to
be equal, representing you and me equally, under the U.S.
Constitution? What kind of three-ring circus are they run-
ning in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., with ring lead-
ers, teams of clowns that are not funny, and where only the
big money-drawing acts get top billing?
The answer is that Congress itself is unconstitutional
in the way it conducts its business. The bill or lawmaking
process takes the vote a'ray from your local representative.
How? You have heard about the all powerful Ways and
Means Committee, or this or that committee. Just that sen-
tence is unconstitutional, because if somebody is all pow-
erful, then somebody else, like your representative, is less
powerful, and that means you do not get represented. Com-
mittees are the problem.
Committees by current definition never even consider
the vast majority of bills. Committees hide information
and decide what information is made public, behind closed
doors. And if your representative is not on that committee,
you will never be allowed to have a say on that bill, because
the committee will kill it, and the floor of either house will
never see it, or get a chance to vote on it. This is why Jeff
Miller says, I am not on that committee, so I will forward
your comments. Or Jeff might say, "IF" the bill comes to a
vote, I will vote for it. An amendment to the U.S. Constitu-
tion is needed outlawing committees. Committees are little
oligarchies, like mini-Congresses. The founders were mis-
taken in the assumption that their successors would have
the intelligence to make rules and procedures that did not
usurp the Constitution. And finally, is the word "commit-
tee" even found in the U.S. Constitution? Answer: NO, pe-


Editor:


After reading a recent editorial, I felt it was important
to clarify the issues surrounding the Meth-Chek ordinance
that I have asked Walton County to consider.
The Meth Check ordinance in no way changes the infor-
mation presently collected by law enforcement. The law re-
quiring customers to provide identification to purchase cer-
tain over-the-counter medicines has been in place for five
years.(The Comibating Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of
2005). The number of people involved in the production of
methamphetamine.in our area is simply stunning
An import thing to realize is that it is illegal to possess.
in excess, of nine grams of these listed chemicals. This is
federal crime. Individuals who are showing up on law en-
forcement radars do not have bad colds. They are buying
hundreds of pills a month. It becomes very obvious when we
see that the same groups of people go to six pharmacies in
one day to buy cold medication that there is a problem (and
I don't mean a flu epidemic).
We currently have to manually keep track of the gram
weights involved as well as the names of. stores and indi-
viduals. It takes a considerable amount of time to 'collate
the information. Meth Chek simply computerizes the same
information we already have. To give you some idea of the
number of people involved in the manufacturing of Meth
in Walton County, I offer the following as a small exam-
ple. While the Chief of Police in DeFuniak Springs, I over-
saw an investigation in which 80 different individuals had
purchased criminal levels of ne.dicjatj im-iniles than three
,months. That was only checking a small amount of the
information provided by the retailers. That's 80 separate
people involved in the manufacture of Methamphetamine
in three months. If that does not scare you it should.
Methamphetamine or "Meth" is insidious in its very na-
ture. It is a man made plague that has no redeeming quali-
ties. There were 25 Meth labs disrupted in Walton County
in 2008. The writer of the 2/3/10 editorial advises that Meth
or the primary ingredients .to manufacture Meth are com-
ing from Mexico. While that is certainly true in some parts
of the country it is absolutely not factual in northwest Flor-.
ida in general and Walton County in particular. All 25 labs
seized were using precursor chemicals purchased locally.
We have destroyed three labs alone in January of this year.
The "kitchen lab" he describes destroys lives and wreaks
havoc on our community.
I understand the privacy concerns in this issue and I am
sensitive to this, however I provide my name for a driver's
license, and to fly on an airplane. Believe me, your life in
Walton County is much more likely to be affect by a "Meth-
Head" than a terrorist.
Just so we are clear the buying of these cold medicines
is governed by federal law. You-cannot buy more than nine
grams in a 30-day period. How much cold medicine is that?
Let's put it this way, if you took it like directed you could
use three boxes a month. That would mean using the medi-
cation as directed for 36 straight days (You would have an'
extra six days worth of medication). We have been track-
ing 100 people buying 20-30 boxes a month during the last
year. The going price for buying these medicines for a "Meth
Cook" is $25 a box or they are being paid with 1/2 gram of
finished product.
If you are buying 20 boxes a month at six different phar-
macies, you don't have a bad cold.. .you have drug problem.

City requested to show cause in

El Charo writ of certiorari


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Circuit Court-of the
First Judicial Circuitin and
for Walton County has re-
sponded to an amended pe-
tition for writ of certiorari in
the appeal of Jack Bell and
Freddie Lopez versus the
City Council of DeFuniak
Springs and the City of De-
Funiak Springs Planning
Board.


The order to show cause
was made by Judge- Gary
L. Bergosh, circuit judge in
Santa Rosa County. The re-
quest for relief was moved
there .after Walton County
adjudicators recused them-
selves from the request.
The document stated-
"having considered the peti-.
tion, the court finds that it
states a preliminary basis


for relief. Therefore, the re-
spondent is herby ordered
to show cause why' the pe-
titioners are not entitled to
relief." The city has 30 days
to file a response, including
any necessary documenta-
tion, at the rendition of the.
order. The petitioners have
20 days from the date the
respondent's response is
filed to reply, if they choose


to do so, per the order.
Attorney for the petition-
ers Bert Moore told the Her-
ald, "We remain cautiously
optimistic. We feel like we
have a good case and await
the city's response to this or-
der."

Submitted by
TRECIA MEADOWS
This year the annual
Olustee Civil War reenact-
ment, 'which. is located 45
miles west of Jacksonville
celebrated its 34th year with
events that began on Friday
and ending on Sunday with
the final reenactment bat-
tle.- Confederate and Union
troops set up camp and al-
lowed the crowds to walk
through and see how life
was lived back in 1864 be-
fore taking the field to par-
ticipate in the battle.

Over 1,000 reenactors
participated this year in the
annual event. Participants
included artillery, calvary,
and infantry. Colby Rich-
ardson, Tyler Meadows and
Jessica Shannon, students
at Walton High School, were
among the participants. This
year. was Colby's first time
participating and Tyler's
third year 'participating at
the Olustee Battle reenact-
ment. On Saturday evening
a formal ball was held with


period music and everyone
in formal period dress. This
year Tyler had the pleasure
of escorting Jessica to the
evening ball, which was en-
joyed by everyone.

man A. Seymour embarked
at Hilton Head, S.C. Their
immediate objective was a
fourth occupation of Jack-
sonville. The force could then
disrupt transportation links
and deprive the Confedera-
cy of food supplies from cen-
, tral Florida, capture cotton,
turpentine and timber, gain
black recruits for the Union
army, and induce Unionists
in east Florida to organize a
loyal state government.
Seymour's expeditionary
force landed at Jacksonville
on Feb. 7, 1864. Scouts and
raiders moyed west and met
little opposition.
General Joseph Finegan
found that position at Olust-
ee. With a lake called Ocean
Pond on his left, a nearly
impassable swamp on his
right and only a narrow pas-
sage between, he called for
troops to help defend Flori-
da. General Alfred Colquitt
answered:that call,.bringing
veteran troops from Savan-
nah, Ga. On Feb. 20, 1864
the Union force of 5,500
men and 16 cannon marched
westward from MacClenny.
By this time, the Confeder-
ate forces almost equaled,
the Union opposing army in
number. Finegan sent skir-
mishers' to draw the Union
forces to Olustee, and they

made contact that after-
noon. The Confederate line
was formed. The infantry
in the center was supported
by cavalry on each flank.
Battle casualties amounted


to 1,861 Union and 946 Con-
federate soldiers. In propor-
tion to the number of troops
involved, it was one of the
bloodiest battles of the Civil
War.


Armonte "Monte" Guice: January Teen of the Month


The. Boys & Girls Clubs
of the Emerald .Coast De-
Funiak Springs Teen Center
is impacting our local youth,
helping them build life skills
that will serve them well
now and into adulthood.
For Walton Middle School
Student Armonte "Monte"
Guice, the Teen Center has
helped him learn how to
positively deal with anger.
Guice, a sixth-grader, was
first introduced to the Teen
Center during the fall lock-
in. The positive atmosphere
and inviting staff was all
it took to keep him coming
back and eventually become
a member.
An articulate middle
schooler, Guice shares that
he had a difficult time deal-
ing with anger when he first


began attending.
"There were events in
my past that left me with
a lot of anger. Since com-
. ing to the Teen Center, I've
learned that I can talk out
my anger and not just react.
I've learned how tQ control
my anger and to follow the.
rules," said Guice.
Unlike many students his
age, says that one of his fa-
vorite activities at the Teen
Center is Power Hour, the
first hour of every afternoon
dedicated to homework and
studying. Guice, an honor
student, said it is nice to get
his school work out of the
way so he can enjoy the rest
of his afternoon and eve-
ning.
"I like Power Hour, be-,
cause my school work is


done arid out of the way. I
also like Triple Play, fitness
for the body, mind, and soul.
The staff creates games that
are fun and teach us skills
that will help us in life,"
said Guice.
Guice also enjoys the en-
richment programs offered
at the Teen Center. Art,
guitar, journalisin and a re-
cently added dance program
are the current enrichment
offerings. An avid artist,
Guice is learning new tech-
niques and skills through
the art program.
When asked of the impact
the Teen Center has had on
him, Guice said, "They have
taught me to set high ex-
pectations for myself, to set
goals."
He also had a message for


the parents of other teens.
"The Teen Center is a good
place for teenagers 'and I
would recommend for par-
ents to let their teens come.
They need to come and see
the Teen Center them-
selves," stated Guice.

The mission of the Boys
& Girls Clubs of the Emer-
ald Coast is to inspire and
empower ,all young people
and their families, in part-
nership with our communi-
ty, to achieve their potential
to be great. The DeFuniak
Springs Teen Center is open
to middle and high school
aged teens. For membership
information or to make a do-
nation to the Teen Center,
contact Unit Director Bob-
bie Smith at 892-3752.

smile as he prepares to hit the court following Power Hour
at the Teen Center.

Local man shares life experiences with Walton Head Start students


By JEFFREY POWELL
A group of Walton Head
Start students recently
made their first trip to the
DeFuniak Springs Library.
The students participated
in valentine activities and
familiarized themselves
with the facility. They also
received a special treat
when local pastor Rev. Ty-
rone Broadus spoke to them
about his extensive life ex-
periences and encouraged
them to do well in school
and life as well.
Broadus moved from
Washington, D.C. to Walton
County in 1948 with his sis-
ter and mother. He went to
school locally, first at Tivoli
and later at Carver Hill in
Crestview. After the eighth
grade he retuned to Wash-'
ington, D.C. and graduated
from. Cardozo High School
in 1963. While still in high
school and as a Lt, Col. of the
Cadet Corps he witnessed
John F. Kennedy lighting
the national Christmas tree
and later met Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr.. After work-
ing as a warehouseman he
joined the United States
Army and was stationed at
Fort Jackson, S.C., were he
attended leadership school.
His next duty' station was
Fort Myer, Va., were he be-
came the first black member
of the Presidential Firing
Party at Arlington National
Cemetery.
During this same time
the Pentagon decided to ap-
ply the same rules to the
Kennedy grave as they had
applied to the Tomb .of the
Unknown Soldier. Broadus
was selected to be one of
the ,original 13 members of
the JFK Honor Guard, and
the only, black member. In
this capacity he was present
when Kennedy's. grave was
moved to its permanent rest-
ing place in 1967. During
the ceremony he was given
the choice of escort and he
chose Jackie Kennedy.
"I had the choice tif Presi-
dent Johnson or Mr1; Ken-
nedy," Broadus said, remi-
niscing. "I was thTb only
black and she was the lady
.of the hour so I chose her.
She presented herself as a


very humble person and of
course she was still a griev-
ing widow."
At the end of his tour of
duty in the Army Broadus
went to work as a campus
policeman at Howard Uni-
versity. He later passed the
entrance exam and became
a Washington, D.C. metro-
politan police officer because
"I wanted to help people." In
1969 while directing traf-
fic he was stuck by a drunk
driver and seriously injured.
Three years later his cruiser
was rear-ended and he was
retired in the line of duty.
After this series of set-
backs Broadus\ returned
to Florida to do some soul-
searching. and to attend his
own "pity party." It was dur-
ing this time period that, ac-
cording to Broadus, he was
called by God to become a
preacher. He was first li-
censed to preach at Mt. Nebo
Baptist Church in DeFuniak
Springs and was later or-
dained in Washington, D.C..
Since 2008 he has been the
pastor of Saint Mark Bap-
tist Church in Flowersview.
Obviously Broadus has
had a very eventful life but.
does not take the credit him-
self.
"All that I am and all I
hope to be is due to God," he
said. "God knows my heart,
When I was five years old I
heard the Easter story and
tried to understand how Je-
sus' death could have been
prevented. Of course there
was no preventing it be-
cause it was God's plan. I
could never have done the
things I have done without
God."
At the end of his presen-
tation Broadus gave each
of the children a calendar
and thanked them. for.com-
ing. He also encouraged the
children to come back to the
library as- they get older,
a sentiment their teacher
echoed.
"It is good for the kids to
come to the library and get a
glimpse of how it operates,"
said Walton Cares Lead
Teacher Ida Murphy. "The
trip also gets the parents
involved. The children learn
through reading and being
exposed to the library."

Wife, resident and mother of three fights for love and life


By ALICIA LEONARD
"She has this amazing
strength about her. I mean,
when you look at her, right
now, she seems frail and
thin, but at the. same time,
she radiates a strength that
I have never seen before,"
said Jessica Williams, sis-
ter-in-law to Misty Rock-
man Williams, 32, a mother
of three, daughter and wife,
who is fighting a battle
against a cancer that has
recently spread.
Williams was initially di-
agnosed last May and found


out a month later that she
had stage three rectal can-
cer. She has already faced
three operations to remove
the original tumor and un-
dergone rounds of heavy
chemotherapy, and radia-
tion. When it was discov-
ered that the cancer had
spread to her lungs and her
lymph nodes, she was up-
graded to stage four: Just
this week, after a sched-
uled scan, doctors informed
her that she also had two
spots on her liver and a col-
lapsed lung. She returned to


Shands Hospital in Gaines-
ville, Fla., on Monday, for
another operation to repair
and re-inflate the collapsed
lung. Physicians were con-
cerned 'that the lung had
fluid in it, as well, and were
hoping to be able to get Wil-
liams into surgery on Feb.
17. More chemotherapy and
a possible second, opinion at
another facility are all being
looked at as future possibili-
ties, according to William's
family.
See MISTY 5-B


MISTY ROCKMAN WIL-

daughters and husband
against cancer. The March

where "Amazing Grace"
flows out in strains.

The chatter of the wren

is heard in the woods
with the deer and all.

THIE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2010


Library Book
By LEAH STRATMANN
It is with some sadness
that I make a few com-
ments about the death sev-
eral weeks ago of Robert B.
Parker, an author whose
works have given me hours
of escape from my everyday
world and transported me
to Boston and the world of
Spenser. Parker died sud-
denly of a heart attack while
writing, an indication his
work ethic. Which showed
no sign of slowing down
even though he was 77 at
the time of his death.
If you are not familiar
with. this author, or with
Spenser, there are 37 books
from which to choose, and
reports are there is another
finished one, which will be
released this year and will
be the last. The library may
not have all of them, but they
have a lot of them. Parker
held a Ph.D. in English lit-
erature and was a full pro-
fessor at Northwestern Uni-
versity when .he wrote his
first Spenser- novel. He was
more than 40 at the time
and it wasn't until he had
written four more Spenser
books that he left academia
to pursue writing full time.
He would have been a fool
not to.
I dropped in on the Spens-
er series about midway
through the series. Through
the use of libraries-coun-
ty owned and those of
friends-I started at the
beginning of the series and
worked my way forward
in time. Little reference is
made to current events in
a Spenser novel and most
of the story is moved along
with snappy dialog between
characters. Chapters are
short and the story gener-
ally satisfying. Parker was
a master at colorful lan-
guage without often resort-,
ing to profanity, and it was
not Spenser, Hawk, or his
ladylove Susan sporting. the
potty-mouth, it was always
another character without
inherent good breeding.
Even Hawk, a child of the
ghetto and rio stranger to
the rough siuff is not un-'
couth. I'm now reading the
Spenser book published in
2009 and will report on it at.
a later date.
Although well established
as the father of Spenser,
Parker created two new
characters well after most
:authors slow down. There is
former baseball player, ex-
'Los Angeles policeman Jes-
se Stone, a character that
has become a TV franchise
for Tom Selleck and Sunny
Randall, another Boston
area private eye. Along the
way he was written books
for young adults and had a
-couple of westerns under his
'belt. He was no slacker.
Parker's passing will
leave-a hole in the Jiterary
world not likely to be filled
for quite some time.
Two books I acquired
through the library I culled
from best of 2009 lists. The
first, Shatter by Michael
Robotham is an unusual
departure froni the usual
thriller. For one thing, the
protagonist of the piece is
a clinical psychologist who
no longer sees patients but


\(s) ofthe week
instead teaches college level
classes. Dr. Joe O'Loughlin
is married with two children
and has recently moved his
family from London to the
bucolic village of Somerset.
The change in career and
the change of venue are both
due to O'Loughlin's having
developed Parkinson's dis-
ease. His wife has taken a
job as an interpreter for a
multinational investment
company and is the princi-
pal wage earner for the fam-
ily. The story opens with
O'Loughlin- summoned from
the classroom by the police
and asked if can. intervene
with a woman threatening
to jump from a suspension
bridge. Upon arrival, the
doctor notes the woman is
wearing red high-heeled
shoes and only the shoes and
talking on a mobile phone.
Sadly, the woman ignores
O'Loughlin and shortly after
his arrival plunges to her
death. A few days later, the
woman's daughter shows
,up at O'Loughlin door and
explains her mother would
never have. jumped from a
bridge, as she was so terri-
fied of heights, she wouldn't
even sit on the top of a dou-
ble-decker bus.
First he has to convince
the police this wasn't a sui-
cide, which is easier when
a second nude woman dies
while hanging from a tree
with one handcuff, a dead
mobile phone at her feet
and dead due to exposure to
the weather. With that we
are off and running as the
psychologist tracks a serial
killer who targets women
and manages to convince
them to harm themselves.
This is a good yarn with ful-
ly.developed characters and
a believable story.
John Sandford is another
prolific author, whose Prey
series numbers more than
20. The author lives in Min-
nesota and most of the books
take place there. The Virgil
Flowers series is apparent-
ly new, although there are
three, books -featuring this
character. This'was-my first,
although I have read some
of Sandford's other novels.
Flowers is an investigator
for the Minnesota state po-
lice, well regarded because
of his awesome closure rate.
He is decidedly unorthodox,
preferring to keep his weap-
on under his seat and dress-
ing almost exclusively in
T-shirts, featuring obscure
rock bands, blue jeans and
boots, thinks about God for
a few minutes every night.
before bed and has three ex-
wives.
Flowers has taken some
rare time off and is fishing.
when he is asked to investi-
gate the death of woman at
,a nearby resort. The woman
is an advertising executive
with political connections
and she been shot while kay-
aking. Flowers is soon up to
his nAck in possible suspects
for the woman's murder.
This book zips right along
with many very funny mo-
ments. His charm and treat-
ment of women are hypnot-
ic.

Ah, the Olympics, a time
for world unison and global
camaraderie brought about
by the spirit of competition
and love for athletics.
One would think.
However, I'm surprised
to find how many articles
are bashing the 2010 Winter
Olympics and its athletes.
Like a pit-bull shredding
a stuffed animal, USA To-
day writer Robert Bianco
wrote, "the Games began
with an overlong, flatfooted
ceremony made memorable
only by its climactic tech-
nical glitch...Vancouver's
effort was a banal misfire,
straining to convey national
identity through bland pop
tunes and bad poetry."
Whew, should we offer
Canada some ice for those.
burns, or perhaps offer Bi-
anco a sedative? Yet this
writer's disdain is not re-
served only for the games,
he attacks the age of NBC
correspondents as well,
writing, "broadcasters will
have to find a makeup style
that works in both stan-
dard and high-definition...
if youth can't be served,. at
least [NBC] might want to
ask some 'of its older report-
ers to be careful,. when talk-
ing to young female Olym-
pians, not to remind us of
creepy gym teachers getting
too chummy with the cheer-
leaders."
Anything else, Bianco...-

while you're at it? Heek,


DR. JOE AND KAREN
Johnson of Paxton, Fla.
would like to announce the
graduation of their daugh-
ter, Heather from the Acad-
emy. of Oriental' Medicine

Heather plans to. join her

ture treatments, .prescribe

why not televise it, as the
only thing Bianco compli-
mented in the article was
NBC's decision to televise
the fatal crash of Georgian
luger Nodar Kumaritash-
vili. I suppose there really is
no such thing as bad press,
because if there were Robert
Bianco wouldn't have a job,
and he isn't the only one.
Yahoo! Sports writer Trey.
Kerby took Olympic athlete
Nate Holland to task after
Holland voiced his dislike
of tight pants some snow-
boarders are wearing (the
traditional attire for the
sport is baggy pants).
"...You'll be competing in
a branded pair of fake dis-
tressed jeans... [so] chill out
Nate Holland," Kerby wrote,
throwing in several sarcas-
tic "bros" along the way.
Geez, no wonder the cold
front hasn't made it to Can-
ada, it's too icy here in the
states,

So the guy doesn't like
tight pants, let that be his
problem. Tight pants re-
duce drag, maybe shaving
a few tenths of a second off
a boarder's time. If Holland
prefers baggy pants so be it,
no need to shred the guy in'
the media at a time when
you, Mr. Kerby, -as a pro-
fessional journalist, should
be .interested in an athlete
based on his sport not his
fashion sense. So chill out
Trey Kerby, and one more
thing...ice; ice baby.

I Ask Auntie Em


Dear Auntie Em,
No matter what I do, I
cannot seem to keep a tidy
and neat house. It's gotten
to the point that it is caus-
ing problems between my
husband and me. He says he
can't find anything when he
looks for it and he has to dig
through piles of stuff to find
anything.
I admit, I have a hard
time throwing things away.
My' husband and I are both
lucky to have our jobs and
we have savings, but I have
a terrible time throwing out
anything I think I might be
able to use later. Then it
starts to pile up, and then
when I figure out what I can
do with it, I can't find it any-
more. I know my husband is
frustrated, but I just can't
seem to stop and I don't
know what else to do. Do
you have any advice?
Packrat in Ponce

Dear Pack,

There is a fine line be-
tween saving items for a
later DIY project and slowly
becoming, a victim of hoard-
ing.
People often save un-
useful items due to insecu-
rity, emotional issues, past
bouts with poverty and fear
of an unstable financial fu-
ture. Believe me when-I say,
there is no bank that is go-
ing to take, three years of
Cosmo magazine, a bag of
unmated nuts and bolts and
45 ketchup packs as a loan
payment. Its just taking up
space and your sense of se-
curity is false. :
Here's a trick, everything
you use for one week,. make


a note of it or. put to the
side. You will notice as hu-
mans we enjoy the familiar.
We wear and or use most
of the same things week in
and week out. The other 60-
80 percent of stuff we never
use. That means you could
probably get rid of over half
your stuff and never even
miss it. If you are serious,
start small, have your hus-
band help and clean out a.
drawer a day. For every-
'thing you keep, something
has to go. Do a yard sale (to
build some real security) or
donate the items and take
them off your taxes.
If you find that you panic
pr are unable to part with
things that really have no
value (such as three years of
Cosmo magazine), I would
advise you to make an ap-
pointment with your doc-
tor and discuss the issue of
hoarding with him. ;Many
times this is also a symptom
of depression or anxiety and
medical invention is needed
before relationships are de-
stroyed. You are not alone,
but you will have to desire
to get better and have con-
trol over your life and not
allow thestuff in your life to
have control over you. Good
Juck and God bless.

MISTY

Williams' sweetness,
energy and drive are well-
known in this area, "It's
hard to meet someone who
doesn't know Misty in this
area. She was the cheerlead-
ing coach at Freeport for a
long time and her and her
family have always been ac-
tive in the community," said
sister-in-law Jessica.
It's that community that
is now rallying behind Wil-
liams and working towards
helping the, family with
covering their 'insurance
deductible for Misty's treat-
ment as well as the many
expenses involved with trav-
eling for medical care. The
Williams family, now liv-
ing in Freeport, have been
touched by the fundraisers,
prayers and good thoughts
that residents are sending
Misty's way.
The next event the com-
munity can show support
for Williams' battle against
cancer is the "March "for
Misty," a 10K and 5K fun
run scheduled for March 27

port. Sponsorships are still

Paxton girls roll over Malone 67-44


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
started their march into the
Class A basketball playoffs
with a convincing 67-44 win
over the Malone Tigers on
Thursday night. Bobcats se-
nior Erin Walker scored 21
points while Alyssa Dupree
added 10 points as Paxton
built an 18-5 lead that the
Tigers would never recover
from. Paxton pushed the
lead to 49-26 in the second
half of play as the Bobcats,
improved to 19-9 with'the
victory.
The win propels Paxton
into the second round on
Tuesday, Feb. 16, when they
host Tallahassee ..FAMU
High at 7 p.m.
Game Notes: The Bobcats
are tough at home, holding
a 66-6 record over the last
5+ seasons. FAMU (20-7) is.
one of the six teams to win
at Paxton, doing so in the
old gym in February of 2006
when they pulled out a 45-
42 win. Paxton has won the
last two meetings since that
game, however, and is 3-2 in
the state playoffs against the
Baby Rattlers. FAMU will


be the favorite and is a very
tall team with a sophomore


guard, Precious Hall, who
is considered one of the top


players in Tallahassee. The
winner of the second round


game will face the Gaines-
ville Oak Hall-Gainesville


Rock winner on Saturday in
the Class A Region 1 Final.

two more fouls in the third
quarter to head back to the
bench with just rover two
minutes left in the third
quarter. While he was on
the floor, though, the Bull-
dogs could not stop him.
Moore grabbed 13 rebounds
and four blocked shots as
he shutdown thelane;,dur-
ing .the time. ep..was on the
floor.
Escambia Charter's Mira-
cle Boatman, who scored 34
points in the previous meet-
ing between the two teams
in Paxton on Jan. 19, put
up only 15.points on a night
that saw the Bulldogs shoot-
ing in the Laurel Hill gym-
nasium actually cooler than
the temperature outside the
facility.
The Bulldogs threw up a
massive amount of bad shots
but got plenty of chances as
Paxton struggled with turn-
overs as the referees let a
lot of contact go, early in
the contest, as has been the
norm in district tournament
and girls basketball playoff
games so far this season.
Escambia Charter pulled
within eight points in .-the
fourth quarter but Paxton
held on as Moore returned to
the line-up halfway through
the fourth quarter to slow
the comeback attempt. Chad
Zessin and Dan Geoghagan
added 10 points apiece as
the Bobcats improved to
22-4 on the year by making
free throws over the final
two minutes of the game to
take a 61-45 victory.
Paxton got to the champi-
onship game after knocking
off Bethlehem 62-34 on Sat-
urday night after the semi-
final games were postponed
due to the extreme cold
weather and snow flurries


in the area on Friday night.
Bethlehem held a 17-13
lead after one period of play
but Paxton charged back to
take a 32-22 halftime lead
as the. Bobcats offense over-
whelmed the Wildcats in
the second quarter of play.
Paxton had little trouble af-
ter that as they pulled away
.over. the final 16 minutes
of competition to advance
to the district title game.
Demetrius Moore scored 17
points on the night while
Shaq Jackson scored 12
points. Dan Geoghagan also
scored 12 points with Chad
Zessin adding 10 points as
the Bobcats defeated Beth-
lehem -for the third time this
season.
Paxton will face Malone
(19-7) at home on Thurs-
day, Feb. 18, in the opening
round of the Class A basket-
ball playoffs. Malone lost to
Tallahassee FAMU 51-45
in Tallahassee on Saturday
night after defeating the
Baby Rattlers twice during
the regular season. Paxton
is 2-3 versus Malone in the
state playoffs including a
49-43 win over the Tigers in
the opening round last year
as well as a 77-56 win in the
first round in 2008. If Pax-
ton defeats Malone the Bob-
cats would likely host Talla-
hassee FAMU on Tuesday,
Feb. 23 in a second round
contest.

Game Notes: Paxton is
42-5 at home the last 3+
season. Jeff Bradley is in his
12th season as the Bobcats
head coach and is believed
to have a 237-119 record'at
the school. Paxton holds an
18-2 record against Escam-
bia Charter in the series
history.

Walton basketball season comes to a close


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves boys
and girls basketball teams
saw the 2009-2010 season
end last week as both teams
fell in the span of three days
to close out the basketball
year.
The Walton boys bas-


ketball team could not. stop
Panama City Arnold center
Nate Hicks as he torched
the Braves for 51 points
on the interior, featuring a
myriad of dunks to help the
Marlins to a convincing 79-
45 win over Walton in the
first round of the District 1,


Class 3A tournament held
in Marianna last week.
Walton trailed only 22-13
.after one period of play but
Hicks was just warming up
as he scored more than 10
points in every quarter of
play, including 17 points in
the opening eight minutes.


The Braves, meanwhile,
could not hit from long range
while the Marlins forced the
ball inside to Hicks on near-
ly every possession to take
advantage of his height for
easy baskets.
The Marlins increased
the lead to 45-26 at halftime


as Hicks put up 14 points in
the second quarter as the
Braves struggled to make
outside shots and found
pounding the paint fruitless
as Hicks blocked shots and
grabbed missed attempts to
fuel the Arnold offense.
Arnold pushed the lead
to 60-38 after three periods
of play as Hicks scored 10
more points in that quarter
before finishing Walton off
with another 10 points in
the fourth quarter for a to-
tal of 51 on the night. Eddie
Pomante led Walton with 15
points while James Towery
scored 12 points in his fi-
nal basketball game for the
Braves. Turnovers and poor
shooting kept Walton from
a rally in the second half of
play.
Walton's Lady Braves did
not have to face a huge cen-
ter, instead, they ran into a
relentless, pressure defense
that got away with physical.
play to build a big lead. Rick-
ards held a 39-18.advantage
at halftime as they forced 19


turnoyers from the Braves
in the first half of play. Wal-
ton could never get closer
than 20 points the rest of
the way as Rickards took an
81-46 decision to advance
to a second round game at
Pensacola Catholic. Rick-
ards senior Kieandra Nel-
son led the Raiders with 15
points on the night. Jasmine
Moore finished as Walton's
leading scorer as the Braves
lone senior played her final
game with the squad. Wal-
ton finished the year at 16-9
on the year.
Game Notes: Walton
coach Jerry Hester ended
his eighth season as the
Braves' head coach arid

Pace.'High senior C.T.
Bradford was selected to
the 14th annual Louisville
Slugger preseason national
high school All-American
team, as chosen by Colle-
giate Baseball. Bradford is
a left-handed pitcher and
outfielder- who was among
the top five batting leaders
last season in the Pensacola
area. He was the only play-
er from the Pensacola area
to make the team, which is
chosen on nominations fr6m
each player's coach and in-
put from scouts and other
coaches in the area.
East Gadsden High
School senior Bryan Robin-
son signed his letter of in-
tent Feb. 3 to play football
for Florida International
University in Miami. If he
does well, Robinson may
have the opportunity to play
, basketball for the university

receiver, Mathews plans to
major in business manage-
ment and hopes to play pro-
fessional football someday.
The Moors Golf Club, a
course located off of Avalon
Boulevard near 1-10 in Mil-
ton, is closing due to an
economy that has seen golf-
ers cut back on play as well
as poor weather that has
hit area courses -hard this
winter. Golf courses around
the region have been getting
punished by the economy
and the cost of maintaining
and running the greens has
been rising, adding up to a
loss for the business. The
Moors plans to close March
21.
How bad has it been for
golf courses along the I-10
corridor in the past de-
cade? Lets count the courses
that have closed. Chipley
lost their golf course, Cot-
tondale's closed, Chatta-
hoochee's shut down years
ago. Heritage Plantation
went defunct near Laurel
Hill. The Shoal River golf
course south of Crestview
shut down. The Moors is
next. That will be at least
six courses that have disap-
peared in recent years.

Freeport boys fall in district tourney


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
survived the opening round
of the District 1, Class 2A
tournament last week with
a 69-43 victory over North-
view but could not find any
magic against semi-final op-
ponent Pensacola Christian
as the Warriors ended the
Bulldogs' basketball season
with a 63-35 win on Satur-
day night.

Freeport (10-15) drilled
11 three.-point shots in de-
feating Northview for the


second time this season
as Ryan McLeod and Alex
Newkirk each scored 22
points in a 69-43 win over
the Chiefs in the opening
round. Freeport led 32-24
at halftime and outscored
the Chiefs in every quarter
as they put the game away
with a 19-7 run in the final
period of play.

Pensacola Christian (19-
1) left little doubt to the out-
come in the opening quarter
as they raced to a 20-8 lead
after one quarter of play us-


ing solid outside shooting
along with their superior
size to build a 44-17 half-
time lead. The Warriors
took advantage of poor ball-
handling by the Bulldogs
who were additionally ham-
pered by an injury to senior
guard Ryan McLeod in the
first period of play.
Mike Goetsch put up
19 points with his smooth
shooting from outside while
6-foot, 8-inch senior cen-
ter Jon Andrews scored 10
points and blocked, nearly
as many to put the Warriors


in the championship game
against Baker on Monday
night. Alex Newkirk scored
16 points in his final game
for the Bulldogs while junior
Michael Graziani scored 12
points.

Jay defeated Ponce de
*Leon in the opening round
58-40 to bring a rough sea-
son for the Pirates to an end
with a 1-24 record. The Pi-
rates; trailed Jay 35-25 at
halftime but could not rally
to pull the upset. Derek
Cooey led the way with 11
.- ..-*-.-T y T: ?'7" ]y4 ? 2::
S ^: -.,. : "',: ., *..'.* .'*^ ,: ,....


points while Chad Brown
added 10 points of his own
in the loss.

Jay jumped out to a 13-2
lead on Baker in the district
semi-final only to see the
Gators rally to pull out a'
51-48 win. Baker had built
a 17-point lead in the fourth
quarter only to see Jay rally
in the closing moments to
make the game close.

Game Notes: Pensacola
Christian is one of the best
teams in the area. The War-


riors defeated Freeport three
times this season with the
closest margin at 26 points.
David Burke ended his 12th
season at the school and is
believed to have a 185-151
record with the Bulldogs.
Freeport finished with a
losing record for the first
time since the 2003-04 sea-
son. Senior Alex Newkirk
scored 1,281 points with the
Bulldogs as he passed Jamey
Goddin's 1,275 career points
scored at the school in his fi-
nal game against Pensacola
Christian.


FREEPORT'S RYAN MCLEOD(10) had 22 points in the
Bulldogs win over Northview, but an injured ankle side-
scored 16 lined him against Pensacola Christian.


PENSACOLA CHRISTIAN CENTER(42) Jon Andrews
scored 10 points and had nearly as many blocked shots as
the Warriors ended Freeport's season with a 63-35 win on
Saturday night in the District 1, Class 2A tournament.


PDL'S CHAD BROWN(11) keeps a Jay guard in front of
him. Jay eliminated the Pirates from the District 1, Class
2A tourney last week with a 58-40 victory.


FREEPORTS MICHAEL
GRAZIANI(30) had 10
points as Freeport knocked
off Northview 69-43 in the
first round of the District 1,
Class 2A tourney.
DALLAS MORING(24) scored four points as PDL saw
the year come to an end with a 1-24 record.


South Walton boys fall


to Sneads 61-48


By PATRICK CASEY
A cold first quarter sunk
South Walton's chances of
an opening round victory
last week as they fell to
Sneads 61-48 in a District
2, Class 2A tournament con-
test played in Blountstown.,
Both teams started slow-
ly on offense as the two
teams combined to miss the
first eight free throws of the
game. SouthWalton led 3-0,
but could not take advan-
tage of Sneads' cold shoot-
ing in the opening period of
play. The Pirates got going
over the final four minutes
of the first quarter to hold a
16-6 advantage as the fouls
piled up on the Seahawks.
Each. team scored 10
points in the second quar-
ter as Sneads held a 26-16
advantage at halftime with
John Locke providing 11
of the Pirates' 26 points.
The Seahawks struggled to
make shots from behind the
arc as both teams seemed
to have trouble adapting to
Blountstown's gymnasium.
Sneads stretched the lead
to 47-31 after three quarters
of play as the Seahawks con-
tinued to be frustrated at ev-
ery turn on offense. Sneads
Josh Rogers contributed
16 points on the night as
Sneads held on for a 61-48
Win as the Seahawks could
not get closer than a seven-
point margin in the second
half of play.
Dylan Smith, playing in
his final game at South Wal-
ton, scored 17 points to lead
the Seahawks while Sha-
fer Martin scored 13 points
and, Shane Seeger 10 points.
The Seahawks did not help
themselves by hitting only
8-of-21 shots from the free'


throw line on the night as
they ended the season with
a 10-16 record.
Game Notes: The Sea-
hawks will miss the. state
playoffs after qualifying last
season. Coach. John Davies
ended his third season with
the club and holds a 'record


of 33-48 at the school. The
Seahawks struggled on the
road this season, posting
only three road victories on
the year. The Sneads game
was the final game for se-
niors Bryant Adams, Quin-
ston Morris, Bo' Palazola
and Dylan Smith.


SNEADS FOUND THEIR OFFENSE struggling in the
first quarter but the Pirates, built a 10-point lead thereafter
and cruised to a 61-48 win over the Seahawks in a District
2, Class 2A tournament game last week.


SOUTH WALTON'S DYLAN SMITH(12) tosses a bounce
pass towards a teammate during the second half of the Sea-
hawks game with Sneads last week. Smith had 17 points in
his final game for South Walton.

Port St. Joe grounds the Seahawks in regional soccer semifinals


By REID TUCKER
After enduring sub-
10-degree temperatures and
heavy winds well into extra
time, Port St. Joe defeated
South Walton to clinch a
trip to the boys soccer re-
gional finals.
The two teams were ag-
gressive in equal measure


all throughout a chilly semi-
final match on Feb. 9, but in
the end it was the visiting
Tiger Sharks who proved
the more capable of capital-
izing on potential chances to
score. However, equivalent
aggression only goes so far,
as it was clear from the be-
ginning of the game that the


blistering wind wasn't the
only thing turned cold that
evening.
Despite numerous at-
tempts during regulation
play, South Walton's usu-
ally red-hot offense failed
to put a goal on the board
until Jose Flores managed
to score in the final minute

of the second half. On the
other hand, Port St. Joe'
needed less than 15 minutes
of the first half to score what
looked to be lone goal of the
game before South Walton
tied it up and simultaneous-
ly took the game into over-
time.

From there, the Sea-
hawks' strikers were poised
to claim a comeback victory,
but an errant shot by Ge-
rardo "Lalo" Gordillo deep
in Port St. Joe territory only
just missed the right post.
Less than a minute later,
Port St. Joe sophomore
Daniel May finished off the
seemingly resurgent South
Walton in a climactic duel'
with Seahawks keeper Jose
Agular, who came out of the
goal to challenge May. How-
ever, the Tiger Sharks' mid-
fielder had the better angle'
and smashed the ball down-
field into the right corner of
the South: Walton ,net, de-,
spite the best efforts of one
of the defenders. :
' Nevertheless, Port St. Joe
head coach Gary Hindley
said his team didn't perform
as well as he would have
liked, leaving "too many
goals on the board," which
he said was largely due to
big-game jitters. Still, Hind-
ley said when his team al-
lowed this lack of composure
to keep happening, it nearly
paved the way for South
Walton's late-game come-
back.
"We won the game, sure,
but we didn't do what we
trained to do," Hindley said.
"There were times in the
game where we still resorted
back to a panic mode when
we. come under pressure.
You can't give good forwards
like [South Walton has] two
or three chances to make a
goal without eventually get-
ting a negative outcome."
Hindley said his team
played with "fitness and
energy" throughout the
match, and also that, by and
large, his strategy of play-
ing' across the field instead
of just north-south helped
his strikers stay on the of-
fensive. This tactic allowed
Port St. Joe's forwards to
double-team South Walton's
defenders in most cases
and also prevented the Sea-
hawks from scoring down
the middle of the field as
they had done in the past,
he said.

Furthermore, Hindley,
who has served on the state
coaching staff with South.
Walton's head coach Danny
Blain for several years, said
this game was one of the few
where he felt "a genuine mu-
tual respect" between oppos-
ing teams. Hindley, though
only in his first year as head
coach at Port St. Joe, has
decades of experience coach-
ing soccer at the collegiate
and professional level, and
he said he draws on that
experience, rather heavily
when going up against more
established programs such
as South Walton's.

"It speaks a lot for the
quality of a coach and his
program when one of their
core attributes is profession-
alism and respect," Hindley
said. "I've had to change
most everything around
[since becoming head coach]
but one thing I will never
change is an emphasis on


respect for the game and for
the opposing team. South
Walton showed us respect
tonight, and I appreciate
that."
While the game ended
the run to the state cham-
pionship for South Walton
(14-2-2), its loss against
Port St. Joe (10-6-2) repre-
sented only its second loss
of an otherwise exemplary
season. The Seahawks even
pulled off convincing wins
against Port St. Joe in their
two previous meetings, in-
cluding their most recent
prior matchup on Jan. 29,
which ended in a district
2-2A championship for
South Walton. -
Blain said a major com-
ponent. in his team's loss
against the Tiger Sharks
was a lack of preparation,
some of which wasn't un-
der his control, namely an
inclement weather system
that moved the game earlier
in the week.
"Ultimately,, what, it
comes down to 'is -that we
were ready. to play the game
Friday, not Tuesday," Blain
said. "They were more pre-
pared than we were. We just
couldn't get in a groove all
night. They were the better
team, no doubt, but in a lot
of ways we sort of gave it to

them."

Blain said major problems
arose because his forwards
didn't sufficiently pressure
Port St. Joe's goal keepers
and tried to "carry the ball
in," rather than work on the
cross-field passing the team
had practiced. Also, he said
he hadn't done his job to ad-
equately prepare his team
for the possibility of over-
time play, which the Sea-
hawks had not encountered
all year.

Still, Blain said he was
proud of his team's season,
and with just two losses in
books, it is inarguably the
best year for Seahawks soc-
cer since he became head
coach of the program.
S"We've come a long way
in three years," Blain said.
"Is this where we wanted to
stop?: No. But still, this is
best season they've ever had

accomplishments."

PDL girls rally past Graceville 49-45


By PATRICK CASEY
Ashley Harper's three-
point shot with less than a
minute to play coupled with
a Graceville timeout that
resulted in a technical foul
allowed the Ponce de Leon
Pirates to escape with a 49-
45 win over the Graceville
Tigers in the opening round
of the Class 2A girls basket-
ball state playoffs.
PDL trailed for a majority
of the game -'by as many as
six points early in the second
half before rallying to force
a tie in the final minutes of
competition between two
teams that were determined
to eke out a win. Graceville
built a 12-10 lead in a very
physical contest as the Ti-
gers banked in a shot at the


end of the first quarter to
hold a slim lead.
PDL rallied for a 23-22
lead at halftime as Sha-lea
Yates and Hillary Harper
provided most of the scoring
with freshman Ashley Harp-
er hitting a key three-point
shot to help the Pirates to
the lead.

Graceville looked to pull
away in the third quarter
of play as Mychea. Williams
scored seven of her 13 points
on the night in the quarter
to build a lead for the vis-
iting Tigers. Trouble was,
she got little help from her
teammates as they com-
bined to post only five points
over the eight-minute pe-
riod to help her. The Pirates


got three-pointers from the
Harper sisters to stay in the
hunt as they caught up with
Graceville in the final 90
seconds of the third quarter
to tie the game at 34-34.
PDL trailed for most of
the fourth quarter but Jas-
mine Flock helped to rally
the Pirates with a keythree-
point shot that was followed
by Harper's shot to give the
Pirates a 45-44 lead with 40
seconds left in the game.
Graceville made a criti-
cal error on the next trip
down the floor as they called
a timeout when none re-
mained for the team. After
a discussion at the scorer's
table, a technical foul was
assessed, sending junior
Hillary Harper to the free-.


throw line where she calmly
drilled two free throws for a
48-45 lead. Graceville failed
on two trips down the floor
to score, as they traveled on
one possession while throw-
ing up a desperation shot
after the Pirates had added
a free throw on their final
possession of the night to
essentially end the game.
"We fought hard, made
some key shots when we
had to have them," coach
Tim Alford added after the
celebration calmed down
on the floor. "It was a very
physical contest. We hurt
them with some drives to
the lane. If we could .have
.made the short ones, we
wouldn't have had to come
from behind. Our free-throw


shooting hurt us early, but
we hit the ones we had to at
the end."
Hillary Harper and Sha-
lea Yates scored 13 points
apiece while Ashley Harp-
er added 11 points as the
Pirates improved to 24-3
with the victory. The Pi-
rates made only 8-of-18 free
throws on the night and
missed a ton of shots un-
der the basket, yet hit eight
shots from behind the arc to
get the win. Graceville ends
the year with a 22-6 record.
PDL will face Cottondale.
on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 7
p.m. in the second round.
The two teams split two
regular season games this
year with each winning on
the other's home floor. The


winner will advance to the
Region Final on Saturday
night.
Game Notes: Cottondale
and PDL have met in the
state playoffs the last three
years with the Hornets hold-
ing a 2-1 advantage enter-
ing Tuesday night's second
round game, Tim Alford is
in his 15th season and holds
a record of 323-131 at the
school. A win by PDL over
Cottondale would allow the
Pirates to host Port St. Joe if
the District 3 champ defeats
Mayo Lafayette on Tuesday
night. A win by Mayo would
send the Pirates on the road
"for Saturday night's Re-
gion Final with a berth to
the Class 2A Final Four in
Lakeland on the line.

2009: A Season to Remember


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bull-
dogs entered the 2009
season looking to, con--
tinue the success of
a 5-4 season in 2008.
Not only did they ac-
complish that task,
but they took the foot-
ball team at Freeport
High School to heights
never before seen in
the program's 34-year
history.
An 11-win season.
The school's first dis-
trict championship in
the sport. A perfect
record in District 1,
Class A. Two playoff
wins in the same sea-
son. A Region 1 cham-
pionship. A home state


semi-final game.
The 2009 Freeport
football team began
their quest almost im-
mediately after the
2008 season closed.
Weight training, agil-
ity drills, studying
game films from previ-
ous season's games in
preparation for those
to come.

Head Coach Jim An-
derson credits a team
meeting that set the
goals for the squad
high in .2009. "We
knew we had a good
group coming back
and we wanted to get
everyone on the same
page. We were able to


do that and this group
of kids worked really
hard to get better."
The Bulldogs
worked hard during
spring practice in May
and capped off the
month with a victory
at Blountstown that
propelled the Bulldogs
into the 'long, and te-
dious work that sum-
mer workouts require
for teams to get stron-
ger and gel as a group
before the battles the
fall season brings ar-
rives.
Fall practice opened
in August and the
Bulldogs immediately
went to work as they
welcomed in new play-


ers from the middle
school while getting
the returning veterans
ready for their Kickoff
Classic with Blount-
stown.
The Bulldogs were
projected to be a major
player in the district
race as a member of
the nine-team field.
Freeport would have
little chance to stum-
ble with eight of their
ten games to deter-
mine the two berths
into the state playoffs.
The Bulldogs opened
with another win over
Blountstown in a fall
exhibition, then had
their open week the
first week of the regu-


lar season. While oth-
er teams started their
seasons, Freeport's
coaches spread out
to scout some of their
foes during the open-
ing week of the sea-
son. It would be the
only Friday night that
the team would have
off until Dec. 11.
The Bulldogs foot-
ball team played for
13 consecutive weeks,
posting an 11-2 record
. while winning a dis-
trict championship,
two playoff games .as
well as becoming the
first Walton County
team to reach the state
semi-finals since the,
Walton Braves did so


in 1986.
This publication by
the Defuniak Herald/
Beach Breeze is in-,''
tended to remind the
Freeport community,
Freeport students,
fans of the team and
its players what hard
work and a set of goals
can accomplish. We sa-
lute your accomplish-
ments and hope that
it becomes a valued
keepsake for many
-years to come.
The 2009 Freeport
Bulldogs raised the bar
high. We all .noticed
and celebrate your.
success in the Walton
County community.
GO BULLDOGS!

Blountstown 12


Bulldog Field
Nov. 20, 2009
The Freeport Bulldogs
beat the Blountstown foot-
ball team for the third time
in 2009, only this time it
actually counted. The Bull-
dogs took advantage of five
turnovers as the Tigers'
sloppy ball-handling helped
Freeport build a 48-0 lead


on the way to a 48-12 victory
in the opening round of the
Class A state playoffs.
Freeport, which defeated
Blountstown in May in the
spring football game as well
as the exhibition Kickoff
Classic in August, saved
their best performance
against the Tigers for last.
Freeport ran for 336 yards
on the ground while Caleb


McCormick caught a pair
of touchdown passes in the
first .quarter as the Bull-
dogs jumped on top 14-0.
Cody Binder and Nathen
Hendrickson combined .for
209 rushing yards and two
touchdowns as six different
players reached the end-
zone for the Bulldogs in the
game.
The Tigers managed only
80 rushing yards in the
game, but hit on some big
pass plays to roll'up 278
passing. yards, including
a 92-yard touchdown con-
nection from junior quar-
terback Charles Buggs to


Ryan McIntyre, late in the
game. Freeport's Paul Hol-
me's recorded two intercep-
tions while adding a 45-yard
touchdown run for the Bull-
dogs. Nathen Hendrickson
turned in 100 yards on the
night and now has 1,434
rushing yards on the year
while Cody Binder added
109 yards on the ground to
give him 862 yards rushing
in 2009.
Blountstown fumbled the
ball seven times, losing pos-
session of the pigskin three
times during the game in
addition to the two intercep-
tions captured by Holmes.

Bulldog Field
Nov. 27, 2009
The Freeport Bulldogs
captured the Region 1 crown
and advanced past the sec-
ond round in the playoffs for
the first time in school his-
tory as senior quarterback
.Cole Weeks threw for 214
yards and one touchdown
while running for another as
the home team posted a 35-
20 win over Liberty County
in the Class A state football
playoffs.
Freeport fell behind
Liberty County 6-0 in the
opening quarter as the vis-
iting team put together a
70-yard touchdown drive on
their second possession of
the game that was capped
by senior quarterback Ter-
rance Evans' 17-yard touch-
down run with 1:58 left on
the clock. Liberty County,
who threw the football only
four times in the contest,
accumulated 213 rushing
yards on the night, but spe-
cial teams proved to be the
difference in the game in the
end.
Freeport responded
midway through the sec-
ond quarter as' the Bull-
dogs marched 67 yards for
a touchdown with Weeks
sneaking in from a yard out
to tie the game. The Bull-
dogs then elected for a di-
rect snap to Justin Farmer
on the extra point as Farm-
er found a wedge in the Lib-
erty County line and dove in
for an 8-6 lead with 6:43 left
in the first half.
The play that changed the
game occurred on the ensu-
ing kickoff as the ball was
lined off a Liberty County
player on the kick with the


ricochet sending the ball
back towards the kicking
team. Nathen Hendrick-
son got to the football first
to give Freeport the ball at
their own 43-yard line. The
Bulldogs offense marched.
down the field with Cody
Binder racing in from three
yards out for a 15-6 lead..
Liberty County had two
different scoring plays called
back on their next posses-
sion by penalties as they
failed to put any points on
the board before halftime,
having to punt the ball away
with five seconds left in the
first half. A penalty stopped
Freeport's first drive of the
second half, forcing the Bull-
dogs to punt the ball away.
with 6:47 left in the quarter.
Liberty County responded
on their first possession of
the second half with an 80-
yard scoring drive that was
capped with a 1-yard dive
by' Evans to cut the lead to
15-13 with 26 seconds left in
the third quarter.
The Freeport passing at-
tack took over from there.

Dec. 11 at 6 p.m. Heritage
defeated Fort Meade 9-7
in the other Class A semi-

The Conquerors. needed
only 14 offensive plays to
build the 33-0 lead as they
generated four big plays on
offense while getting a 51-
yard interception return
from senior cornerback Matt
Hardy for a defensive score'.
The Conquerors scored on
their first four possessions,
holding a 33-0 lead with
10:16 left in the second qtuar-

ning back and quarterback
at times during the first
half, put the visiting team

quarter for a 6-0 lead.
Freeport looked like they
might get the first points
of the game as Nathen
Hendrickson returned the
opening kickoff 54 yards
to the Conquerors 38-yard
line. The Bulldogs drove to
the 20-yard line, but were
stopped on a fourth-down
play to end the possession.

the loose pigskin at the 50-
yard line to set up a 55-yard
touchdown pass to Buie
from -sophomore quarter-
back Jeremy Wannamaker
on the first play of the sec-
ond quarter for a 26-0 lead.

The Conquerors forced a
Freeport punt on the Bull-
dogs' next possession and
added their final score of the
first half as Buie hit Knight
with a deep pass. Knight
caught the ball and jogged
to the Freeport 6-yard line
before lateraling the ball to
teammate Chuck Hawkins,
who took the ball the final
six yards for the touchdown.
The play drew an unsports-
manlike conduct flag for the
show-boating as well as the
ire of the Freeport fans in
attendance .


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18,2010


Holding a 33-0 lead, the
Conquerors forced two more
Freeport turnovers to stop
drives into Jacksonville
territory before halftime.
Freeport finished the first
24 minutes of play with four
turnovers while Weeks was
sacked four times in the
first half. The Bulldogs' lone
big play on offense in the
first, half was a 63-yard pass
from Weeks to Nick Elling-
ton that got Freeport out
of the shadow of their own
endzone. Unfortunately, the
drive ended a few plays later
when Weeks, was intercept-
ed by Rashad Knight at the
Conquerors' 20-yard line.
Freeport managed a cou-
ple of touchdowns in the
second half of play as Cody
Binder returned a fumble
31 yards for touchdown to
cut the deficit to 33-7 and
Weeks connected with Jus-
tin Farmer on an 18-yard
scoring pass on a fourth
down play to close the gap
to 36-14.


Trinity Christian did not
throw a pass in the second
half of play as coach'Verlon
Dorminey had his offense
bilk the clock with the run-
ning game. The Conquerors
got a 33-yard field goal from
kicker Banner Clark for
their only points of the sec-
ond half.
The Conquerors(13-0)
rolled up 463 yards of total
offense with 317 yards com-
ing from their rushing at-
tack. Andrew Buie led the
Conquerors with 104 yards
on five carries as ten differ-,
ent players carried the ball
on the night.

Cole Weeks threw for 120
yards with one touchdown
while tossing two intercep-
tions. The Bulldogs .senior
quarterback was sacked five
times on the night. Freeport
managed only 83 rushing
yards as Cody Binder led
the way with'50 yards on
the night. Freeport packed.
a raucous home crowd into


the stadium with the tem-
pbrature hovering in the
mid-40s most of the night.
"I thought if we could
block them we would have
a.chance to run our offense,"
coach Jim Anderson said af-
ter the game. "The turnovers
killed us and we weren't as
sharp with out tackling as
we needed to be. These kids
put out a great effort and
I am very proud of them.
They accomplished so much
and raised the bar for future
teams at Freeport High."
The Bulldogs wrapped up
the season with an 11-2 re-
cord whileAnderson finished
his ninth season as the head
man and holds a record of
52-44 at the school. Nathen
Hendrickson finished the
night with 37 rushing yards,
giving him 1,557 yards on
the year. Binder finished
the season with 968 yards
on the ground as the two
combined for 2,525 yards on
the year.

"This is a super-im-
portant movement," said
"Hands Across the Sand"
participant Suzi Frieden-
field. "Everyone living along
the beach needs to get in-
volved," she added. Frieden-
field lives along CR-30A in
south Walton County. ,
She and others present
in 'Seaside on Feb. 13 were
adamant about protecting
the beaches from any im-
pact from offshore .drilling
and wanted to convey those
sentiments to their elected
representatives.
More than 400 people
came to the beach at Sea-
side on Feb. 13 for Hands
Across the Sand, an event
aimed at sending a message
to Florida legislators about


citizens' opposition td near-
shore drilling for gas or oil.
While areas all over the
state, joined in observing,
Hands Across the Sand, it
could be said that Seaside
was the "center of the uni-
verse" for the event because
of the way the movement got
started. Several months ago
Walton County resident Da-
vid Pleat, who is running for,
the Florida House of Repre-
sentatives, made a campaign
appearance at Bud & Alley's
restaurant in Seaside. There :
Dave Rauschkolb, owner of
the restaurant, learned of
House Bill 1219, which had
passed in the Florida House
of Representatives in April
2009. The measure, which
would have opened state
waters six to 10 miles from
shore to negotiations for gas


and oil exploration, had been
introduced near the end of
the legislative session. The
,bill had been quickly ap-
pr9ved by the Florida House
without time for much pub-
lic awareness. However, the
leaders of the Florida Sen-
ate had' opted not to hear
.the bill, and lacking Senate
approval, it did not become
law. .
Pleat stated strong oppo-
sition to near-shore drilling,
and Rauschkolb was .also
moved to take up the cause.
The 'restaurant owner soon
came up with the idea. for
Hands Across the Sand,
with the goal .of putting
in place the largest public
gathering in the history of
the state to counter drilling

small historic community..
Discussions on how to fa-
cilitate emergency response
to Grayton Beach, and. par-
ticularly the area around
the popular Hotz Avenue,
started in earnest soon af-
terward, continuing to date.
At the Feb. -9 regu-
lar meeting, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners discussed
a recommendation by the
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) to make Hotz Av-
enue. in Grayton Beach a
one-way street. The street
contains several businesses
that draw both tourists and
lpcals, sometimes in large
numbers.
In a letter to the county
public works department,
SWFD Fire Marshal Sam-
my Sanchez had identified
the current parking con-
figurations for Hotz Avenue
as a major factor inhibiting
emergency vehicles from ac-


cessing that road "in a safe,
timely manner."
"The lack of parking
spaces causes customers to
park wherever they can find
space," Sanchez wrote. "This
often leads to cars parked
in portions of the roadway,
thus reducing turning ra-
diuses for emergency ap-
paratus. We feel the only
feasible, immediate solution
would be to designate Hotz
Avenue open to one way
traffic only," he added.
Sanchez also suggested
reconfiguring parking di-
mensions, along with clearly
posting and enforcing park-
ing and no-parking areas on
Hotz Avenue.
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen asked how
much of Hotz Avenue would
be made one-way in connec-
tion with the proposal. In-

Lupin Beach concept


moves forward


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18,2010


By LEAH STRATMANN
The final items under
consideration at the month-
ly meeting of the planning
commission were considered
as one item, even though
there were two parts to the
request. Speaking for Ebsco
Industries, attorney Gdry
Vorbeck pointed out the Lu-
pin Beach abandonment and
the request to grant' a con-
ceptual planned unit devel-
opment (PUD) development
order were interdependent.
Ebsco Industries pre-
sented a parade of people
to present their case for a
conceptual PUD to approve
20 single-family residential
units on a 6.36-acre parcel
of land located on the south:.
side of Walton Magnolia
Lane, adjacent to the Bay
and Walton County line.
Jason' Comber, an em-
ployee .,of Ebsco Industries
was; the first :to address
the commissioners. "I, have
some history with this par-
ticular" site because when I
was growing up in Alabama,
my"family had a house on
this site. This, is a compli-
cated piece of property arind,
the planning has gone onrfor'
a couple of years.. When we
bought' the property .there
were eight government lots'
of record that we knew.we
could sell if we had to. We
reached" oit 'to. neighbors
in Inlet Beach and, over 14
tol6 months, we planned'
this 'project as a team. We
tried hard to come, up with
what, we thought was the
best. solution, for this site.,
W' had two public meetings
for community input. I don't
'know if we have'people here
tonight who are against this,
although I do know there is
some opposition. I'm com-
mitted to doing a quality
project with a quality simi-
lar to Alys Beach. The first
issue is density. We could
build eight units perlacre,
which means we could do 50
houses, but we are only ask-
ing for" a total of 20, mich
less dense than those around
us. The second big ,issue is
the dune. How will our con-
struction affect the primary
dune as well as the second-
ary dune? It is not possible
to do any construction with-
out moving the earth a little
bit. We have a Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (DEP) permit to
reinforce the dune. All the
homes being proposed are
behind' the primary dune,"
Comber noted.
Comber further said the
Coastal Construction Con-.
trol Line (CCCL) was not a
line that could be built in
front of, but the line itself.
can be negotiated., "I tried
to make everybody happy
with the way I planned this..
- We have pristine abres here
with no restricted views. We
are trying to develop it in
the way that I 'think is first'
class.". Comber also noted
the area has been used as
a public beach access for
years, even though people
were crossing over private
property. The .builders
therefore are asking to build


a public beach access walk, might create more problems
according to the standards 'than it's worth. Two times

Wedding industry and residents agree to agree


By DOTTY NIST

A series of roundtable
discussions between rep-
resentatives of the Walton
County's wedding industry
and members of the residen-
tial community got started
on Feb. 15 at South Walton
High School.
The discussions were or-
ganized in response to the
concerns of representatives
Q of the industry and other
businesses over a nuisance
ordinance that had been
proposed by Walton County.


The Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) had been scheduled
to' take up the proposed or-,
dinance, which would have
dealt with noise, littering,
and other public nuisances,
on Jan. 26. The ordinance
had been in part been aimed
at addressing complaints
*from neighborhoods about
alleged disturbances associ-
ated with homes in residen-
,tial areas that are rented
out for weddings and other
events.
The ordinance was re-


moved from the Jan. 26
county commission agenda
and rescheduled for review
on March 9, in order to pro-
vide time for the roundtable
discussions, which were to
be facilitated by Dawn Mo-
literno of the Walton Area
Chamber of Commerce.
The Feb. 15 meeting was
well attended and included
business people, residents,
homeowners, county staff,
representatives of the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office,
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict, and the South Walton

Tourist Development Coun-
cil, plus one county commis-
sioner, Cecilia Jones.
At the close of the meet-
ing, Jones called said the
discussion had been "great."
She added, "It's a good
start.".
The meeting was closed
to the media. Moliterno ex-
plained that press coverage
might have hindered round-
table participants from
speaking freely in order to
resolve difference between
the parties and find common
ground. The media were in-
vited to speak with those in-
volved once discussion had
concluded.
Attendee Christina Gsh-
wandtner, owner of Fete
Weddings and Events,


agreed that the discussion
had been "very positive."
Moliterno summarized
the outcome of the round-
table as an agreement be-
tween the parties that "they
all want to work together to
find a workable solution."
She added that the group is
focused on formulating a set
of recommendations that all
can agree on, which is to be'
provided to the BCC at the
March 9 commission meet-
ing.
Moliterno said weekly
meetings between the par-
ties would continue for the
next couple of weeks prior
to March 9. She explained
that there has been an at-
tempt to keep the number
of 'attendees manageable,


for example by encouraging
homeowners' associations
to send a representative
rather than many residents
from the same neighborhood
attending.

The meeting series has
not been publicly advertised,
and Moliterno opted not to
provide a meeting schedule
for media publication. In-
stead, she, encouraged par-
ties interested in joining
the discussion to contact her
directly for information on
the discussions and to get
' involved. She may be con-
tacted online at dawn@wal-
tonareachamber.com or by
phone at the Walton Area

I've never seen you flinch,

ate your leadership for the

been the custom for the TDC
to find its own legal counsel.

Burke explained that tra-
ditionally the TDC has in-

TDC chairman Maurice

A motion was made di-

RFQ for an attorney.
"I also want to add my ap-

commented.

i During the general meeting held Feb. 10 at the Destin
United Methodist Church, Past President Vivek Likhite
presented Josette-Rhodes Carroll of South Walton High
School with a check in the amount of $1,000 for deposit in
the Walton County Snowbird Scholarship Fund from which
the School awards grants to students based on both schol-
arship and need. Al Francis brought a new. musical treat
to the general meetings when he introduced a four-piece
ensemble headlined by the Dents Brothers.
When they took command of the stage, the audience liv-
ened to the amiable good humor of Ronnie Dents, whose
lyrics flow with the sweetness of honey. His rendition of
"Blueberry Hill" brought the audience to its feet while Er-
nest "Fly" Dent's saxophone evoked memories of the great
Gerry Mulligan. Telvis Coleman's keyboard and piano ren-
ditions also stirred memories of another.past great, Fats
Domino, and percussionist Mike Mosley's rhythms kept the
ensemble in balance.
The first question: satisfied attendees asked President
Bob Swenson afterward was, when is the next meeting? His
highly-charged staff is already cranking the engine for that
meeting scheduled for March 3 at the Community 'Church
of Santa Rosa Beach' located at 3524 West U.S. 98. The
event promises to be a very special occasion,.made so by the
appearance of the Snowbird Singers who are preparing for
two performances, the first of which is a benefit concert for
Haitian relief which will take place Feb. 27 at 3 p.m. at the
Community Church of Santa Rosa Beach located at 3524
West U.S. 98 and the second on March 3 when the member-
ship convenes for its final general meeting of the season at
10 a.m.
Those who are beginning to think northerly will want to
know storage drop-off dates for items delivered to Afford-
able Storage located at 114 Sugar Drive (one mile east of
CR-30A on U.S. 98 south side) 3 and 4 p.m. are Feb. 24,
March 3, 10, 17, and 24. The popular program directed by
Don Gehrke owes its success to a squadron of volunteers.
They are Hugh Barnard, Herman Block, Bud Cole, Bob Col-
lins, Charlie Hirsch, Ken Hofer, Bob, Kane, Tony Newell,
Don Tilk, and R1oger Villwoch. The group stores about 450
plastic containers, 18 20 gallon size each year and about
100 other objects including golf equipment, chairs,' tables,
and bicycles. To use the facility, snowbirds produce a mem-
bership card and $10 per container or item, $20 for bicycles.
It is also a good place to drop-off excess canned food; they
see that it gets to Caring and Sharing, and while you're at
it, drop off a cold one for these hard working guys. C6ntact:

Wine Over Water -


" IL


An estimated 50,000-
plus spectators crowded the
downtoW'n streets of
Panama City, as more than
30 floats, with 19 krewes,
threw out more than
100,000 strands of beads,
cups, moonpies, silk roses,
doubloons, and other
throws. Throughout the
day, bands played, crawfish
boiled and kids of all ages
grabbed beads, cheered on
the krewes and brought a
little of New Orleans to the
Florida bayou country.
Seven years ago, .the
first Mardi Gras celebration
took place in Panama City,
when the Krewe of St.
' Andrews first hit the'
streets with just two floats
and a small contingency of
paraders. This year, along
with their seven rolling
floats, the krewe royalty,
King Charlie and Queen
Linda Coram, welcomed the
other krewes including the
,Krewe de Yak, Krewe of
Messalina, Krewe of Old
Bay Rats, the Brew Krewe,
the Krewe of Dominique
Youx and numerous other

TDC beach management


readying for 2010 season


Preparations fobr ', the
2010 tourist season are well
underway at the Walton
County Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC). The
beach maintenance crew
is taking advantage of the
slower. winter "months to
make improvements to
public beach accesses and
ensure all beach facilities
are in optimal condition to
serve beachgoers during the
busier spring and' summer
seasons.
The team is currently re-
pairing damaged boardwalk
accesses, painting public
beach restrooms and faded
parking strips, cleaning
kiosk signs, and building
trash receptacle cages to be
placed along environmen-
tally sensitive areas.
"We're dedicated to main-
taining Walton County's
beaches to ensure they are
clean, pristine and acces-
sible," said Dave Sell, beach
maintenance manager for,
the Walton County TDC.
"Research shows that 90
percent of our visitors rank
having clean and well-main-
tained beaches as one of
the primary attributes that
keep them coming back year
after year,"
In order to uphold those
standards, the TDC beach
crew cleans the beaches


seven days a week/365 days
' a year, collecting trash from
the 406 trash receptacles
placed along the coast and
maintaining nearly 60 pub-
lic beach and- bay accesses.
The TDC's beach mainte-
nance team also removes
dead fish, shore birds and
water mammals from the
coast and files a report with
the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Commission. The crew
regularly fills empty holes
and removes debris and
other material that washes
ashore as well as large aban-
doned items such as boats
that may be left by beachgo-
ers.
"Beach maintenance ef-
forts are an important part
of our operations and it is
critical that our guys have
access to the 26 miles of
Walton County beaches,"
says Sonny Mares, execu-
tive director for TDC. "We
know that the beaches are
the primary reason visitors
come to this area and we are
dedicated to polishing our
golden egg."
In addition to day-to-day
activities, the TDC is car-
rying out a series of capital
projects that will further
enhance tourists' beach ex-
perience. One of the new
projects is the addition of
50 parking spaces to the


Seagrove beach access. The
new design will expand the
parking, capacity allowing
16 new parking spaces on
Santa Clara Drive and 34
more on Willow Street.
"These spaces are critical
in garnering extra state and
federal funding for future
beach restoration projects,"
noted Mares.'
Storm damage assess-
ment and beach nourish-
ment projects are also vital
to the area and part of the
TDC's activities. The TDC
works closely with FDEP
and FEMA contributing in-
formation and coordinating
restoration projects.
The TDC also recently
completed the construction
of a new storage facility f6r
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict Surf Rescue division.
The building, located at Ed
Walline Regional Beach
Access, now provides life-
guards greatly needed near-
by access to retrieve and
store life-saving equipment.
Tourism is the number
one industry in Walton
County and-the destination
hosts an average' 2.5 million
tourists annually. Visitor
spending generates approxi-
mately $1 billion dollars an-
nually and supports nearly
12,000 jobs in the commu-
nity.


SWFD to conduct large-scale

mass casualty incident exercise


On Wednesday, Feb. 17,
the South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) will be support-
ing Sacred Heart Hospital
on the Emerald Coast with
their annual disaster drill
by participating in a Mass
Casualty Incident (MCI)
Exercise. Agericies partici-
pating in this exercise in-
clude the Sacred Heart Hos-
pital on the Emerald Coast,
South Walton Fire District,
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office, Walton County Fire
Rescue, Destin Fire Control


District, and Bay County
Emergency Medical Servic-
es.
This exercise will take
place between the hours of
9 a.m. and 2 p.m. SWFD
would like to advise citizens
in the area of Sandestin
(north side) during this time
to be aware that this exer-
cise is for training purposes
only.

According to Wayne
Watts, Division Chief of
Training for SWFD, "Train-


ing opportunities like this
are extremely beneficial in
helping to ensure our emer-
gency response system is as
prepared as possible when a
real emergency of this type
occurs."

SWFD thanked Sandes-
tin Resort for their coopera-
tion and use of the Linkside
Conference Center, and
neighboring public safety
agencies for their support
and participation in this im-
portant exercise.


Florida Trend Magazine
has awarded six of Beaches
of South Walton's restau-
rants among "Florida's 500
Best Places to Dine." Crown-
ing the list are Caf6 Thirty-
A, casual fine-dining; Bud
. & Alley's, Mediterranean
cuisine; Fish Out of Water,
casually chic, fresh cui-
sine; Vin'tij Wine Boutique,
eclectic coastal food; and,
Seagar's Prime Steaks and
Seafood, exquisite fine din-
ing. Adding its name to this
year's list ,is Destin Chops
30A, recognized for its pre-
mier steaks and trendy vibe.
Also, debuting on the "Best
Newcomers" list, restaurant
Caliza at Alys Beach was
chosen as one of the best
new eateries in the state.


"We are honored to have
Florida Trend recognize
seven of our local restau-
rants," said Tracy Louthain
director of communications
for Beaches of South Wal-
ton TDC. "South Walton is
very fortunate to have such
talented chefs that all bring
their own style of cooking,
but all adhere to a similar
philosophy of using fresh
and local ingredients."

AlongNorthwest'Florida's
Gulf Coast, locally -grown
foods are readily. Area chefs
develop strong relationships
with the local farmers and
fishermen to create menus
that are adapted on a daily
or weekly basis depending
on what's fresh or what can


be obtained within a 100-
mile radius. A commitment
to "eating local" has become
a tradition adopted by the
area's chefs, who say rely-
ing on the "eating local" ap-
proach can be challenging,
since they are at the mercy
of weather and the season-
ality of Florida produce.
But all agree that using the
freshest ingredients is what
delivers great meals.

SHOOTING THE


BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


There must have been a
shift in the tectonic plates of
the earth last week because
I found myself agreeing with
something Rush Limbaugh
said. I slapped myself a
couple of times to make sure
I was still in charge of the
activities of my brain, but
Sno amount of self-flagella-
tion changed anything. As
appalling as it was, it was
real.
The agreement came
about because Limbaugh
sort of almost vindicated
presidential chief of staff
Rahm Emanuel's use of the
word retarded. To be per-
'fectly precise, Emanuel saw
fit to use a profane modi-
fier to the word,. but he did
so in a closed private meet-
ing. One has to wonder how
business conducted behind
closed, doors and presum-
ably in the company of like-
minded individuals became
public knowledge. Some-
body in attendance at the
meeting is clearly no friend
of Emanuel's and made the
comment public. ,
It should also be noted
Emanuel was not referring
to a person, but to some pro-
posed policies. I believe some
policies can be retarded, as
in hindering progress, but
in so saying Emanuel got
Special Olympics chair Tim
Shriver's shorts in a bunch
and then Sarah Palin had
to weigh in as well. Palin
is clearly an up and comer,
as she can now talk out of
both sides of her mouth with
feigned sincerity.


Dictionary.com defines re-
tarded when used as a verb
to mean delayed, and when
used as 'a noun to be a slow-
ing down, diminution, or
hindrance. Only the fourth
definition, characterized as
disparaging slang, refers .to
a person who is stupid, ob-
tuse or ineffective in some
way.
When I was growing up,
retarded was the term used
for those who would never
reach full fulfillment as
adults. It was not a nasty
term; it was the accepted
medical term for such peo-
ple. I agree that learning im-
paired or learning disabled
sounds much better, but
I also believe some things
can be retarded, even if the
people suggesting them are
clearly not.
Which is what Limbaugh
said. While Palin called for
the resignation of Emanuel
for using the word, she said
it was okay for Limbaugh to
do so because he was using
satire. Uh, no, sorry, bet-
ter look up that definition
Sarah. 'Limbaugh said out-
right that some policies are
retarded and some of the
people who offer them up
are retards. Clearly this is
neither subtle nor satire or
any other spoonful-of-hon-
ey-makes-the-medicine-go-
down definition. Palin can't
have it both ways, but God
bless her for trying-she
may have a future in poli-
tics, ,
Political correctness has
truly run amok. Any think-


LEAH STRATMANN


ing person knoy's a politi-
cian of Emanuel's status
would not be so stupid as
to use derogative language
about an individual, but he
was referring to policies and
I see nothing wrong with his
choice of words- as the poli-
cies in question would hin-
der the agenda of the sitting
president. Since when is it
unacceptable to call a spade
a spade? Oh wait, did I just
disparage a racial group
when I was clearly referring
to one-fourth of a deck of
cards? Absurdity, thy name
is political correctness.
Language is fairly pre-
cise, but attitude and tone
can change meanings dra-
matically. This issue took
up a lot of editorial space
and even more ramblings
by the multitude of talking
heads on the all news chan-
nels and talk radio. If every
utterance by politicians,
private as well as public, is
going to be parsed in this
fashion, nothing will ever be
done, the electorate will con-
tinue to be distracted, and
the politicians can continue
with sleight-of-hand tactics
ensuring the blockage of
any kind of forward move-
ment. Retarded indeed.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2010


PLAN

Lyle Seigler responded that
it would only be the sec-
tion between the DeFuniak
Street intersection and the
Garfield Street intersection.
Grayton Beach resident
and business owner Lloyd
Blue observed that, had
the growth of the commu-
nity been anticipated when
Grayton Beach was platted
in 1890, the design would
surely have been different.
He added that, however,
that design is part of the
charm of Grayton Beach.
Turning to "the issue of
the people who come," Blue
observed that they come to
Grayton Beach because of
his business, the Red Bar,
other businesses, and be-
cause of the historical na-
ture of the community. Blue
said that for 10 years the
Red Bar has hired an off-
duty law enforcement officer
between Memorial Day and
Labor Day, who directs traf-
fic.
While recommending that
the SWFD request be taken
seriously, Blue was also of
the opinion that parking en-
forcement alone would, go a
long way toward solving the
problem. While making Hotz
Avenue one-way would solve
the issue of an approach-
ing car interfering with a
responding fire truck, mak-
ing the road one-way would


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-D


also result in other serious
issues, Blue told the com-
missioners. As one of these
he identified the fact that
much of the traffic coming
off Hotz Avenue would be
routed onto Lydia Avenue, a
narrow road already paved
to its maximum extent. He
observed that a vehicle larg-
er than a normal-sized car,
particularly a large delivery
truck, cannot make the turn
onto Lydia from Garfield
Street.
Blue suggested that,
if the recommendation to
one-way Hotz Avenue were
approved, that the action
be phased-in over a 90-day
transition period, during
which time parking enforce-
ment, the striping of park-
ing spaces, and the delivery
vehicle situation could be
worked through. With a con-
certed effort by businesses,
homeowners and residents
to improve matters, perhaps
the decision could be revis-
ited within 40 to 60 days, he
encouraged.
Ryan Douglas of Walton
County Public Works sug-
gested the implementation
of a plan to maximize park-
ing and minimize congestion
near corners. He explained
that the plan would include
collapsible plastic "candle-
sticks" that would keep cars
out of some areas butwould


provide space for emergency
vehicles to manoeuvre when
needed. Douglas also iden-
tified Banfill Road, a block
north of Lydia, as a better
route for larger vehicles
coming off Garfield Street
from a one-way Hotz Av-
enue. He said signage would
be needed to direct the large
vehicles onto that route.
Grayton *Beach resident
and pioneer Shirley Sahlie
reluctantly agreed with the
one-way recommendation, at
least on a temporary basis,
but told the commissioners
that this would not solve the
underlying problem. That,
she said, was too many ve-
hicles coming into the small
community. Sahlie called for
the establishment of off-site
parking.
District 5 Commission-
er Cecilia Jones thanked
Sahlie for her input on the
matter, crediting her with
being the one to bring the
emergency response situa-
tion to her attention in the
first place. Jones said the
officials would continue to
"look at parking" in Grayton
Beach and countywide.
Grayton Beach homeown-
er Robert Murphy disagreed
with "funneling" traffic onto
Lydia and was of the opinion
that the one-way plan would
increase traffic flow on Hotz
Avenue. "It's a very complex


issue," he said.
Douglas told the commis-
sioners that Lydia Avenue
is 17.5 feet wide at its nar-
rowest point, but that this
is "not an issue...during
certain hours of the day."
He suggested making Hotz
Avenue one-way during the
hours of the day when it
tends to function that way
anyway.
Cecilia Jones' initial mo-
tion was to start moving,
toward one-waying Hotz
Avenue by identifying park-
ing and no-parking areas,
doing parking striping, put-
ting the plastic candlesticks
in place, and working with
businesses on their delivery
truck situations.
Larry Jones was in favor
of the BCC looking at each
phase of the plan, evaluat-
ing what results the initial
measures would have, to see
if there could be satisfac-
tory improvement without
one-waying Hotz Avenue.
Douglas confirmed the other
parts of the plan could be ac-
complished independently
of and without one-waying
Hotz.
Cecilia Jones said her
opinion was that it would be
necessary for Hotz Avenue
ta be made one-way at some
point, but she added that
it could not happen right,
away, and certainly not
until the striping, signage,
and other elements were in
place.
She withdrew her pre-
vious motion made a new

A report of a missing ju-
venile led to the arrest of a
woman on allowing minors
to drink alcohol at an open
house party. After midnight
on Feb. 15, the mother of a
17-year-old girl reported to
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office that she did not re-
turn home after going out to
eat with friends on Sunday
night in Miramar Beach.
The missing girl had
previously texted a friend
indicating she was at an
- apartment, .but was riot
sure where. While taking
the missing person's report,
Sandestin security indicated
that they had already been
to an apartment on Crystal
Cove Lane in reference to
a minor consuming alcohol
when their parents picked
her up.
Sheriffs deputies arrived
at the apartment to find the
missing 17-year-old and a
second underage teenage
girl along with liquor bottles.


Authorities arrested Olivia
Cauley, 18, who said that
she owned the residence.
Cauley is charged with
two misdemeanors: contrib-
uting to the delinquency of
a minor, and also allowing
minors alcohol at an open
house party. Cauley was
booked and later released
from the Walton County Jail
under a $1,250 bond.

FLYNN STUCK


TV theft suspects


now off air


The Walton and Okaloo-
sa County Sheriffs Offices
working together led. to the
arrest of two men who broke
into an unoccupied home on
Gulf Bridge Way in south
Walton County. Over the
weekend, Okaloosa County
Sheriffs Deputies arrested
Cameron Neil Flynn, 21, of
Destin for dealing in stolen
property.
Flynn reportedly told a
Walton County Sheriffs
deputy that he and an ac-
complice, Austin Godfrey
Stucki, 21, of Fort Walton
Beach parked outside the
Gulf Bridge Way home.
Stucki broke out the front
door window to gain access
to the house. The pair stole
five flat screen televisions
and two DVD players. Stucki
later surrendered himself at
the Okaloosa County Sher-


iffs Office.
The homeowner lives
in Atlanta, but intends to
prosecute Flynn and Stucki
for the burglary of his resi-
dence. The suspects report-
edly looked up the residence
online, on a virtual tour to
determine that it was unoc-
cupied. Both men are facing
a charge of dealing in stolen
property in Okaloosa Coun-
ty.

In Walton County, Flynn
and Stucki will face ad-
ditional charges including
burglary of an unoccupied
dwelling, grand theft, and
criminal mischief. Both men
are at the Okaloosa County
Jail in Crestview under
$3,000 bonds, but they have
been ordered held in order
to face the Walton County
charges.

DAVE RAUSCHKOLB,'Seaside restaurateur and Hands

tion in Seaside.


LOCAL RESIDENTS "
Suzi Friedenfield and Andy
Jackson and many others'
wore "Hands Across the

stration at Seaside.


MANY ATTENDEES wore black to illustrate what the
contrast of any oil on beaches would be against the sugar-

in state waters. His idea in-
cluded having groups gath-
er on the beaches and' join
hands for a brief-period, to
symbolize their determina-
tion to protect the beaches
from the impacts of drilling.
Rauschkolb created a Web
site for the event 'ndd got
in contact with like.-minded
people in other areas of the
state, who became organiz- .
ers for their own areas. A t-
shirt design was created and
shirts were sold for people to
wear to the demonstration
and elsewhere to heighten
awareness' of the issue. "
Among the sponsors get-
ting involved with the effort
were the Sierra Club, Audu-
bon of Florida, Defenders of
Wildlife, Protect Florida's
Beaches, the Caribbean
Conservation Corps, and
Progress Florida. 'Among
Hands Across, the Sand's
local sponsors were Walton


Outdoors and SoWal.com.
In addition, the E.O. Wil-
son Biophilia Center near
Freeport sponsored a Feb. 4
informational forum on off-
shore drilling at South Wal-
ton High School which was
attended by approximately
200 people, featuring pre-
sentations by conservation-
ists and representatives of
'the gas and oil industry.
Hands Across the Sand
was timed to closely precede
the beginning of the 2010
legislative session. Near-
shore drilling opponents are
concerned that a measure
similar to House Bill 1219
may be introduced in that
session, which is to begin in
March.
Among the 'Hands Across
the .Sand participants on
Feb. 13 in Seaside was Son-
ny Mares, executive director
for the South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council


ALL AGES were present at Seaside for the event and participated with enthusiasm.


and wife Jennett.
"We want these beaches to
stay nice and white. That's
what we're known for, and
you don't have beaches like
this, anywhere else in the
world, so we want to keep'
them protected," Mares
commented. '
Glenn Seawell, a Sea-
side resident for the past
18. years, was of the same
opinion. Reaching down
and picking up a hand-
full of sand, Seawell said,
"Look at this. Sugar-white
sand like this is only found
along 'these 100 miles of
beach. We're wearing black
.today to demonstrate how
oil would contrast with this
sand." Seawell also brought,
up potential impacts 'on
south Walton County's glob-
ally-rare coastal dune lakes
and their sensitive ecology.


"We're all here because
we're very concerned," Sea-
well said. He did not buy ar-
guments about the economic
benefits of offshore drilling,
arguing that any loss in
tourism resulting from drill-
ing would far outweigh the
economic benefits promised
for the community by the oil
industry.
"Most of the jobs would
go to people from Louisi-
ana and 'Texas---and then
there's the visual pollution,"
Seawell continued.
'Seawell said he had re-
cently been in Santa Barba-
ra, where he looked out from
the beach and saw huge oil
platforms. "They were hor-
rible looking," he said, "they


looked like condos in the
water."
"I hear California is bank-
rupt. It didn't help them," he
concluded.
After arriving around
noon in Seaside, attendees
joinedd hands at about 12:30
p.m. and remained linked-
up for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, other groups,
some in other parts of south
Walton County and some on
beaches in other parts of the
state, did likewise at close to
the same time.
There were reports of
-sizable gatherings at Gray-
ton Beach, Blue Mountain
Beach, Rosemary Beach, and
Ed Wallirie Park, along with
many other smaller local
