City receives big


check, makes big


budget amendment


By ASHLEYAMASON
The city of DeFuniak
Springs received a premium
return from their property
insurance with the North-
west Florida League of Cities
(NWFLOC) in the amount of
$24,351 at the Nov. 22 City
Council meeting.
Tom Conley from the
NWFLOC explained when-
ever it has a profitable year,
in Florida known as a quiet
hurricane season, it likes
to pass those profits onto
its members. Mayor Har-
old Carpenter accepted the


check noting it was a wel-
come help to the budget.
The Council voted to set
a public hearing Dec. 13 to
discuss amendments which
would make the city of De-
Funiak Springs eligible to
qualify for the Tree City
designation bestowed by the
Arbor Day Foundation.
City Manager Kim Kirby
received unanimous approv-
al for a budget amendment
in the amount of $253,251
for airport operations, in-
cluding two full-time em-
ployees-an airport manag-


er and support position. As
of Dec. 1, the city will oper-
ate the DeFuniak Springs
Municipal Airport. Council-
man Don Harrison empha-
sized the need to "get the
best person we can [for the
airport manager]" through
a competitive process. May-
or Harold Carpenter coun-
tered, "We don't have time
to advertise...we've got to
move to put someone at the
airport tonight."

Paxton council divided over


water ordinance revisions


and employee evaluations


By REID TUCKER
The three new members
of the Paxton Town Coun-
cil jumped into the thick of
city business as discussion
of revisions to proposed wa-
ter and sewer ordinances
sparked debate from all
sides.
The initial purpose of the
discussion at the Nov. 16
meeting was a final review
of the new ordinances be-


fore they went up for their
required two-month adver-
tisement, an action that
was eventually approved by
unanimous vote. However,
that determination was
long in coming as the Coun-
cil quickly became divided
over the effects changes to
the water and sewer rate
schemes would have on the
city's taxpayers.
The main changes the


ordinances bring about are
5-percent hikes across the
board to both water and sew-
er base rates and as well as
penalty increases when cus-
tomers are late paying their
bills. This latter change will
set penalties at 15 percent
of the customer's utility bill
rather than the 10 percent
currently charged, which

A closer look at Freeport's sewer system


By BEN GRAFTON
Comments at a Freeport
City Council meeting on
Nov. 9 concerning the pos-
sibility that a major power
outage could cause health
problems for some sewer
customers prompts a closer
look at the situation.
Prior to the slide into
recession, real estate de-
velopment in the Freeport
service area was, as was the
rule elsewhere in northwest
Florida, projected to expand
exponentially. Developers
were proposing new subdi-
visions, town home projects,
shopping and office centers
and other projects at a rate
that was difficult to keep
track of. Properly so, there
was also pressure to provide
sewer service for new and
existing developments in
order to minimize the num-
ber of septic tanks already
in wide use. The require-
ment for the city to provide
infrastructure for this boom
led to the expansion of Free-


port's sewage plant to a de-
sign capacity, according to
Engineer Charles Peters, of
approximately 750,000 gal-
lons of sewage per day.
The original Freeport
sewage collection system
was a relatively compact
gravity flow design in which
sewage was fed by gravity
into a large diameter main
that fed lift station pumps at
selected sites. These pumps
fed the waste into the sew-
age plant for treatment. But
the expansion around Free-
port was far reaching and a
gravity collection system for
so large a service area was
too costly to consider. So
an alternate design, some-
times used in rural areas,
of a smaller diameter low
pressure sewer main fed by
individual pumps, referred
to as canister lift stations,
located on the users proper-
ties was selected.
The canister lift stations
consist of a small reserve
tank fed by gravity from the
user's residence or business.


The tank is equipped with a
level control that activates
a pump (sometimes called a
grinder) when the volume in
the tank reaches a predeter-
mined level. Normally, when
the level control turns the
pump on, the tank has 30
to 50 gallons of empty waste
storage available. Typically,
according to Peters, a resi-
dential user pumps about
150 gallons of waste into the
sewage system each day.
As things turned out, the
recession set in, and expan-
sion ceased. At the present
time, according to infor-
mation received from City
Clerk Robin Haynes, Free-
port now has slightly more
than 1,000 sewer customers
about 90 percent of whom
are on the original gravity
flow system while the re-
maining roughly 10 percent
use the canister lift stations
to feed raw sewage to the
treating plant.
Haynes has reported that
some potential customers
for city sewage treatment


who are located in the ar-
eas served by the canister
lift stations are reluctant
to sign on for service. They
cite a concern that in a ma-
jor power outage like those
associated with hurricanes
the canister system would
shut down, causing sewage
to back up into the residence
creating a health problem.
They claim they do not have
this problem with septic
tanks.
Mayor Mickey Marse
points out that under hurri-
cane rainfall conditions the
ground becomes saturated
with water causing septic
tanks to flood with resulting
contamination of the soil
and of nearby bodies of wa-
ter. Following this, return to
normal operation is a time
consuming process.
Marse and Peters agree
that the canister lift sta-
tions, which use small
pumps of about one-half
horse power according to
Marse, can be operated by
power from a user-owned


small emergency generator
to which can the pump can
be wired. They also point
out that in the Freeport ser-
vice area, many homes and
businesses already have a
suitable generator to pro-
vide power to refrigerators
and freezers during extend-
ed power outages associated
with hurricanes. These units
could also be used to power
the pump.
Marse says that the sew-
age plant is operating at.
only about one quarter 'of
its rated capacity. At this
rate plant efficiency is nit
as good as it would be if it:
was operating at a higher
rate. He would like to have
more customers for better
efficiency. He also says that
the plant is designed to pro-
vide reclaimed irrigation
water for parks and com-
mon areas, but at the low
operating rate the amount
of reclaimed water that can
be produced does not meet
existing demands.

PURE SUGAR CANE JUICE flows from the grinding mill.

W NiALTON* CTFRRinao)afidayofesan


WALTON COUNTY FARMER Virlyn Taylor (7) and friend Larry Poole feed sugar cane
into the grinding mill.




How sweet it is


Story and photos by
JEFFREYPOWELL

Walton County citizens
that travel U.S. 331 south
of DeFuniak Springs may
have noticed a sugar cane
patch across from the Wood-
lawn fire department. They
may also have noticed quite
a bit of activity lately in that
patch. The activity is long-
time farmer Virlyn Taylor
and his friends squeezing
sugar cane in a grinding
mill which produces, pure
cane juice.
Taylor, one of 12 chil-
dren, learned the craft from
his father many years ago in
north Georgia. At that time
the family made sorghum
juice and syrup which is very


similar to sugar cane. He
uses a grinding mill that is
over one hundred years old
and was at one time turned
by a horse or mule. Taylor
acquired the mill from a
local resident by trading a
truck transmission for the
rusting item. He then re-
built the mill and has been
using it ever since.
"I enjoy the fact that I
am continuing a tradition
that is well over 100 years
old, not only that, making
the juice is fun," said Tay-
lor. "I have fond memories
of working with my dad and
being outdoors. Doing this
reminds me of those days."
According to Taylor the
middle of November is the
normal time to harvest the


sugar cane. He says the
cane is right after the first
frost which happened ear-
lier in the month. Although
he still sells his juice Tay-
lor admits the endeavor is
mostly a hobby and a way to
fellowship with his friends
like life-long Walton County
resident Buddy Brown.
"We use the juice to drink
and we used to make syrup
but it is hard to make any
money with syrup. It is a
very time consuming pro-
cess. Mostly we do this as
a hobby. I like to come over
and help my friend, we
have known each other for
years."
Taylor places a sign by
the road when he has cane
juice to sell.

The staff of the Walton
County Tax Collector's Of-
fice (WCTC) has once again
partnered with a local ser-
vice provider to supply
Christmas gifts to area chil-
dren in need. The ages and
wish lists of approximately
30 local children were pro-
vided to WCTC by the ser-
S vice provider.
Angel trees are located in
the lobbies of both the De-


Funiak Springs and Santa
Rosa Beach offices. Mem-
bers of the community are
welcome to come into the
office and adopt an "angel"
and share in the season by
providing Christmas. gifts
for a child.
"Christmas is a time for
giving and our office enjoys
giving back to' the commu-
nity" said Rhonda Skipper,
tax collector. "Many families


in our area are still strug-
gling financially and need
assistance to provide their
children with gifts to open
Christmas morning. We
want to help those families
have a memorable and spe-
cial day despite the hard-
ships their facing."
The angel tree has been


well received by customers.
Several of the "angels" have
already been adopted. Area
individuals wishing to par-
ticipate are encouraged to
come by the office to select
an angel. The wrapped gifts
are due back to the Tax Col-
lector's Office by Thursday,
Dec. 16.


Pre-trials held on

trio of murder cases

in Walton County


By BRUCE COLLIER
On Nov. 18, Circuit Judge
Kelvin Wells held pretrial
hearings on three murder
prosecutions, discussing
possible trial dates. The
judge reportedly has "five or
six" such cases on his docket
for the coming months.
Teresa McKee, charged
with the first-degree pre-
meditated murder of Steph-
anie Lockwood in August
2009, still has several issues
that need to be addressed,
and her case has been sched-
uled for another pretrial on
Dec. 2.
Thomas Ford McCoy,
charged with first degree


premeditated murder in the
April 2009 shooting death of
Curtis Brown in DeFuniak
Springs, is looking at a ten-
tative trial date in March
2011, but is also set for an-
other pretrial on Jan. 27.
Also set for another pretrial
on that date is Ira Randall,
who allegedly killed a man,
then buried his body in Hol-
mes County. Randall will be
given a mental evaluation
in December.
In addition to these three,
Wells has two other first de-
gree murder trials pending -
Todd Ball, set to be tried in
January, and Dannie Baker,
whose trial on multiple mur-
der charges is set for April.

Indignity?

By BRUCE COLLIER
We got a letter this week from Mr. Randy Henning of
Mossy Head, a longtime reader and regular correspondent,
one I am always glad to hear from. Mr. Henning's letter is
timely for this, one of the year's busiest travel weeks. You
can read it yourself. By the time many of you have read it,
Wednesday (Nov. 24) will have passed and the news will
be full of accounts of how things went at airports on what
some have called National Opt-Out Day.
Backing up, the source of the trouble is the new proce-
dure of security screening, in which travelers are subjected
to X-Ray body scans that produce images some say would
qualify as X-Rated. Youtube (among other see-it-now web-
sites) is accumulating videos of incidents to fuel the out-
Srage.
Opting out, its supporters say, is a way to throw a stick
in the spokes of the Transportation Security Administra-
Stion's (TSA) intrusive procedures. Travelers must tell secu-
rity people they refuse to be scanned, opting instead for a
pat-down search. These take longer, and by all accounts are
' no improvement on the scans; they're just not televised.
In addition to sending a message, of course, this has the
potential to slow-down airline boarding lines to the point
where hundreds of passengers would either miss their
flights, or hundreds of flights would have to be delayed to
Swait for passengers to get through the lines. Ah-ha, you
say, exactly. That will teach them. My only problem
with that lesson is this: TSA and other security personnel
are paid by the shift, not by number of people searched.
When their shift ends, they are simply relieved by another
person who takes up where they left off. The only people
that opting-out hurts, at least immediately, are other trav-
elers. And at this time of year, travelers' tempers are more
easily lost than a matched set of Louis Vuitton.
True, civil disobedience is as American as Thanksgiv-
ing, but, as Mr. Henning pointed out, someone has made a
: proposal to address part of the problem. Rep. Ron Paul of
Texas has introduced a bill, H.R. 6416, a copy of which is
available online at several locations. Paul's bill is cited as
"American Traveller Dignity Act of 2010." The bill reads,
S"No law of the United States shall be construed to confer
Sany immunity for a Federal employee or agency or any
individual or entity that receives Federal funds, who sub-
jects an individual to any physical contact (including con-
tact with any clothing the individual is wearing), x-rays,
or millimeter waves, or aids in the creation of or views a
representation of any part of a[n] individual's body covered
by clothing as a condition for such individual to be in an
airport or fly in an aircraft. The preceding sentence shall
apply even if the individual or the individual's parent,
guardian or any other individual gives consent."
As they used to say in law school, "let there be torts."
The plaintiffs' bar is surely watering at the mouth, and not
at the prospect of Grandma's turkey.
The glaring question that jumps out from this bill is,
"immunity from what?" Criminal prosecution? Civil ac-
tion? Employment discharge? A purse upside of the head?
Paul is no fool, but this is little more than a stepping-off
point for debate.
I was more impressed with questions raised by U.S.
Congressman John Mica, a Republican member of the
U.S. Congress from Florida's 7th District. Mica wondered
whether there isn't some other form of security procedure
or technology, less intrusive, that is not being considered.
Mica is a ranking member of the House Transportation
and Infrastructure Committee, so this isn't idle specula-
tion. I think he is on to something.
Mica has also suggested letting private companies han-
dle airport security, but this avoids the question of the pro-
cedures themselves. If current procedures are intrusive,
they are intrusive no matter who performs them, and it's
unlikely that even a private firm, if put in place, would
not receive some kind of federal funding or be exempt from
federal oversight, which would, of course, bring Paul's bill
into play, assuming it ever gets passed into law. The fact
is that the U.S. government is simply not going to keep
its hands off something like national and international air
: travel that affects American lives. Just because the last
: few terrorism attempts were perpetrated by incompetents,
: that doesn't mean they're all playing without a full deck.
. All it will take is another underwear bomber successful
this time and the only question people will ask is, "how
did he get through?"


SAs satisfying as opting out might be, I don't see much
value in it beyond a symbolic gesture. It's not like you're
refusing to be searched, just choosy about how it's done.
With respect to its supporters, that's not the real point. If
we're going to invoke the Constitution and Fourth Amend-
ment protections, we have to get down to the meat of it and
really ask what is meant by "unreasonable searches and
seizures." Extreme cases make bad law, and so do extreme
acts. It's a serious subject for serious discussion.
Be safe out there, on or off-camera.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 25, 2010


L E T H ITOR


Editor:
Just when things were cooling down after the election,
we find ourselves being assaulted by the TSA airport se-
curity screeners. But, never fear, Ron Paul is here. Ron
Paul, the most intelligent Congressman in modern times,
has quickly introduced a Bill to end the practice of allow-
ing airport security guards to take nude pictures of us
and grope our groins, chests, and posteriors for the sake
of "security." The Bill is HR 6416, The American Traveler
Dignity Act. Watch him live at http://www.dailypaul.com/
node/149693, if interested. He is fighting for our rights,
rights that the government is supposed to, but is neglect-
ing, to protect.
The TSA, Fatherland, aka Homeland Security, has no
concern for your rights. The guards in these airport prisons,
like all good soldiers, are doing what they are told. We have
three year olds, nuns, and people like you and me being as-
saulted.
If you by chance are unlucky enough to be flying Nov. 24,
the day before Thanksgiving, you have the chance to stand


Editor:

[this is a copy of an open letter sent to Rep. Brad Drake,
sent to us by Mr. Rushing]

Dear Rep. Drake:
I am writing out of concern about S.B. 550, the Septic
Tank Law. Something smells foul with this legislation when
they only proposed enforcement until July instead of killing
it. Everyone I have spoken to considers this bad legislation.
But, we all know that the lobbyists and bureaucrats, who
are in their corner, will try to continue to push this through
anyway. However, it is important to repeal this legislation.


Editor:
The Peddler's Alley on Nov. 6 saw lots of shoppers out
looking for that special deal. The DeFuniak Springs Visi-
tors Bureau wishes to thank everyone who was involved.
For fear of inadvertently omitting someone, I will just say
a collective thank you on behalf of the Bureau to all who
supported and participated in the event. This includes the
city of DeFuniak Springs and Streets and Sanitation De-
partment crew, the DeFuniak Springs Police Department,
the media (WZEP 1460, Bright House Networks, and The
DeFuniak Herald, in particular,) the folks who worked to
organize and staff the event, the downtown merchants who
supported the event, the vendors who came with their in-


Editor:
My name is Tristen Mason. I have just qualified as a Star
Scout with troop 525 Boy Scouts. Scouting is an organiza-
tion that teaches skills for everyday things that happen.
It teaches about safety, and how to be prepared for emer-
gencies. It teaches about the environment and about first
aid and many other life skills. We also get special privelges
such as camping at Wild Adventures and a flash light tour
at the Marianna Caverns which many scouts enjoy doing. I
have been a member of Troop 525 for over 2 years. I have
made several new friends and I feel that I have learned a
lot since I have joined this troop.
I would like to thank Joanie Winchester, our committee

up and shout for your rights. At an airport with full body
scanners, say, "I OPT OUT." Then refuse the new alterna-
tive extreme pat-down procedure, and never let them take
you to a private room. Pull out your pocket U.S. Consti-
tution, the one soldiers are sworn to protect, and demand
protection and your rights found in the Fourth Amend-
ment. But be sure to record the whole scene, because a tree
falling in the forest makes no noise if no one is there to hear
it.
Before you travel, you may want to check out websites
such as www.wewontfly.com and others like it, to see how
much these images actually show. We Won't Fly is urg-
ing travelers to stand up for their dignity. Is this finally,
enough is enough? Should you view the website, I recom-
mend keeping young children away from the site, since the
actual airport images portrayed would be classified R rated
by the Academy of Motion Pictures.

It won't be easy considering all the money and influence the
lobbyists have poured into the effort. You know well that it
would have been easier to vote no on S.B. 550 than to repeal
a bad law once it is passed.
I am making this an open letter in order to both help you
feel accountable and to encourage others to contact their
legislators and make the will of the people known concern-
ing this matter. Beware, the good and responsible people of
America are no longer asleep!

Sincerely,

FUNERAL H(
Locally owned and family


By ALICIA LEONARD
The holidays are not al-
ways a Hallmark moment
for everyone. Some may be
estranged from their fami-
lies, some may be stuck at
home and some might not be
able to afford a Thanksgiv-
ing meal, but area churches
are working on making this
a better Thanksgiving no
matter what.
The Walton County Bap-
tist Association with other
local churches are offering a
free holiday meal to anyone
who would like or needs one.


Richard Murray Jr. with the
First Baptist Church of De-
Funiak spoke of the inten-
tion behind the Thanksgiv-
ing meal, "It's free and we
want to love people where
they are at and encourage
everyone to join us if they
can. If they can't drive, we
will bring the meal to them.
We're going to do whatever
we need to do to get them a
meal for Thanksgiving and
reach out and let them know
we care. We just want to
help them however we can."

Alaqua Animal Refuge


Announces Holiday Open


House & Shopping Fair


Alaqua Animal Refuge,
northwest Florida's pre-
miere no-kill animal shelter
and adoption center, will
host its third annual holi-
day open house on Dec. 11,
noon to 4 p.m.
The family-friendly event
will feature live entertain-
ment by the band Blackwa-
ter, holiday treats and bev-
erages, photos with Santa,
a petting zoo and children's
games, while showcasing
the unique refuge in Free-
port. Guests will also have
the chance to meet Champ,
a miniature horse that was
rescued in September and
quickly became an interna-
tional Internet sensation
through his courageous tale
of survival.
As well, this year's event


will offer a holiday shopping
fair, with groups of local
youth, civic and service or-
ganizations and interested
shelter supporters, along
with artists and retailers,
selling products and servic-
es to raise funds for Alaqua
Animal Refuge.
A suggested donation of
$5 for guests 13 and older
will be collected at the en-
trance, and each donor will
receive five $1 tickets re-
deemable at the holiday
shopping fair.
"Our annual holiday open
house is an opportunity to
celebrate another year of
saving the lives of neglect-
ed, abused and homeless
animals with our supporters
and members of the Alaqua
Animal Refuge adoption


family," said Laurie Hood,
founder and president of
Alaqua Animal Refuge. "And
this year's holiday shopping
fair will add another fun el-
ement to our family event
that will help us raise funds
to continue our mission.
"This event is also an
opportunity to invite the
community to experience
and explore our refuge. It's
much more than a shelter,
it's a peaceful farm-like set-
ting where animals can find
care and safety until their
perfect owners come along,
no matter how long that
takes," Hood added.
For groups or businesses
interested in participat-
ing in the fair, e-mail April

Story and photos by
BRUCE COLLIER
Last Saturday (Nov. 20),
area officials and volunteers
with Habitat for Humanity
of Walton County gathered
to welcome and ask a bless-
ing on a freshly renovated
home for the Shider family.
The residence is located on
North 20th Street in De-
'Funiak Springs, and the
Shiders have put in some
250 hours of "sweat equity"
into making the pre-exist-
ing structure suitable for
their family. Ronald Shider,
wife Euderia, and children
Titiyana, JaRaun and Chris
gathered with Habitat for
Humanity workers for a
prayer of blessing, presen-
tation of a new Bible for the
home, a gift of garden tools
and a plant from the Green
Thumb Garden Club, and
the official handing over of
the house keys to Ronald.
The Shiders joined a cir-
cle for prayer, and Ronald
spoke emotionally on behalf
of his equally moved family.
"I want to thank you all," he
said, adding "I appreciate
all they have done for us."

Smith named

co-angler of the year


One local angler, Michael
Smith, had a thrilling week-
end in Palatka, Fla. on the
St. John's River when he
won "Co-Angler of the Year
for the Northwest Region"
in Florida. Smith also cap-
tured fourth place in the
co-angler division of the
Florida B.A.S.S. Federation
State Championship.
He was awarded two
beautiful plaques and a
cash prize on Sunday after-
noon, Nov. 7. He competed
against 44 co-anglers from
across the state of Florida.
Smith's 9.16 pound total
haul over the two-day tour-
nament placed him on the
team representing Florida
in the Southern Region Di-
visional. The regional tour-
naments will be held on
Kentucky Lake next spring.
This is the second year in a


row that he has qualified for
the state team.
Based on points earned in
other Florida B.A.S.S. Fed-
eration tournaments over
the year and the state tour-
nament, Smith won a plaque
naming him "Co-Angler of
the Year for the Northwest
Region" in Florida. This is
Smith's third year as a mem-
ber of the Hub City Bass
Masters of Crestview, Fla.
He is the youngest member
out of a total membership of
44. Smith is currently the
leading agler in this club.

The ninteen-year-old is
the son of Hinton and Bar-
bara Smith and grandson of
Geraldine Ballard of Pax-
ton, Fla., and is currently
a sophomore at Northwest
Florida State College in
Niceville, Fla.

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS MAYOR Harold Carpenter and clergymen representing the various churches in the area were
present at City Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 23, for the annual signing of the proclamation of National Bible Week within the city
limits. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

National Bible Week proclamation signed


The basis of the procla-
mation of National Bible
Week within the DeFuniak
Springs city limits is to rec-
ognize the contributions of
the Bible to the development
of American society and also
to encourage people to read
the Bible as source of inspi-
ration, hope and guidance.
National Bible Week was in-
stituted in 1941 as\a means
of bringing the nation to-
gether during World War II
and since then, every year


on the week of Thanksgiv-
ing, the week has been rec-
ognized at the highest levels
of government. Mayor Har-
old Carpenter said he looks
forward to the signing of the
proclamation each year.
"I'm a Christian and I
believe in what the Bible
teaches," he said. "It's al-
ways a pleasure being the
mayor of DeFuniak Springs
on the day when I get to sign
this proclamation."

Preliminary review of Florida's

threatened wildlife under way


The preliminary findings
of biological status reviews
on listed species reveal suc-
cess stories for some of Flor-
ida's most vulnerable spe-
cies. Although work is still
under way, in early Novem-
ber, experts appointed by
the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) began to review
the information and data
received on 61 state-listed
species against Florida's
listing criteria. The groups
found that several species
may no longer be at risk of
extinction and may not need
to be listed.
"We hope these prelimi-
nary findings will result
in the discovery that our
conservation- measures in
the past decade have had
measurable, beneficial im-
pacts on wildlife in Florida,"
said Dr. Elsa Haubold, who
heads up the FWC's threat-
ened-species listing process
team. .
Ten currently listed mam-
mals have undergone the
preliminary status reviews,
and initial results indicate
that five species do not
meet listing criteria. These
species include the Florida
black bear, chipmunk, Flori-
da mouse, Homosassa shrew
and Sherman's fox squirrel.
Four of 21 currently state-
listed birds also do not meet
the criteria: limpkin, brown
pelican, snowy egret and


white ibis.
The biological status re-
view groups found that the
following bird and mammal
species met at least one of
the listing criteria: Ameri-
can oystercatcher, least
tern, little blue heron, red-
dish egret, roseate spoonbill,
tricolored heron, osprey,
southeastern American kes-
trel, white-crowned pigeon,
Florida sandhill crane, Mar-
ian's marsh wren, Scott's
seaside sparrow, Wakulla
seaside sparrow, Worthing-
ton's marsh wren, black
skimmer, snowy plover,
burrowing owl, Everglades
mink, Florida bonneted
bat, Sanibel Island rice
rat, Sherman's short-tailed
shrew and Big Cypress fox
squirrel.
Haubold cautions this
is only the first step in the
careful process of studying
the status of these species.
After all 61 species receive
the :scrut i ny ofthe biological
status review teams, com-
posed of recognized experts
and led by an FWC staff
member, the reports will be
sent for review to national
and international experts
for each wildlife species.
However, before the Com-
mission removes any species
from the list, a management
plan will have to be written
and approved. One goal of
the management plans is
to ensure the species never

Officers at the November
Annual Board Meeting


On Nov. 11, Rachel Gil-
lis, COPE Inc. chief execu-
tive officer, along with Craig
Reynolds the outgoing
board of directors president,
inducted the FY2010-2011
officers. The annual meet-
ing was well represented by
state and local dignitaries.
Gillis highlighted some of
the achievements in the past
year. The most significant
was the three-year CARF
Accreditation granted to
COPE in September.
Improvements included
the expansion of the wait-
ing room at the Coy Burgess
site. The agency continues to
meet all the annual contract
requirements, while staying
within the projected budget.
Satisfaction for both clients
and staff remained strong
at 98 percent. Overall, the

reaches a high risk of ex-
tinction again, which would
result in the need to re-list
the species.
The reviews in Florida
are still under way for many
of the remaining 61 species,
and the preliminary find-
ings will be available some-
time in early December. The
Commission could consider
staff recommendations as
early as April.
"This is a huge effort on-
the part of the teams, and
the process is working very
well," Haubold said. "But
this does not mean our work
is done far from it. We still
have lots to do to ensure no
species ever goes extinct in
Florida."
One of the species re-
viewed was the Florida
black bear, which is cur-
rently listed as threatened
in Florida. The biological re-
view group found black bear
numbers have increased
and the population is not
in decline. However, be-
fore any change in status is
made, several steps must be
completed, including devel-
oping a management plan
that ensures the species will
continue to thrive in the fu-
ture. The FWC is currently
accepting public and stake-
holder input on the draft
bear-management plan to
make sure it contains the
best possible objectives and
strategies to conserve Flori-
da black bears.
"When a species is delist-
ed no longer in danger of
extinction it is truly a rea-
son to celebrate," Haubold
said. "It means Florida's
past efforts to increase pro-
tected and well-managed
habitat, educate the public
and manage the population
have resulted in the very
best possible scenario: a
species brought back from a
high risk of extinction."

An Oasis of Southern Hospitality


By ALICIA LEONARD

The Wind Creek Casino
& Hotel is an entertainment
complex in the unlikeliest
of places. Among field after
field of cotton, farm houses,
and small rural businesses
that time, the interstate and
customers forgot, the iron,
glass and concrete structure
rises from almost nowhere,
reminiscent of the Emerald
City in The Wizard of Oz.
Once inside, all the bells
and whistles of Oz ensue
with a decidedly southern
twist. Only in Atmore, Ala.,
would the Alabama versus
Auburn rivalry include ev-
ery casino employee wearing
their team's jerseys and face
paint to work that day. For
three Alabama fans, it was
a welcome first glance into
what was to be very enjoy-
able experience due to the
service and professionalism


displayed by Wind Creek
and surrounding business.
The complex was built
in 2009 and covers over
225,000 square feet with
57,000 square feet of gam-
ing floor, four restaurants,
an amphitheater, specialty
shops, a luxury spa, com-
plete gym and a 17-story,
236-room luxury hotel. The
casino and hotel are owned
by the only federally rec-
ognized tribe in Alabama,
the Poarch Band of Creek
Indians. The 1,600 ping-
ing, ringing, and flashing
machines set out on a circu-
lar game floor look like and
sound like slot machines,
but they are actually called
electronic bingo machines.
And although the Poarch
Band own two other gaming
sites in Alabama, the Wind
Creek complex could be a
crown jewel for any gaming
company.


Surrounding the circular
gaming floor are four excel-
lent restaurants that would
fit any taste. Fire, the steak
house offers a taste of rare
cuts of beef and even rarer
bottles of wine to enjoy with
them. The Grill is all about
Americana tastes, and The
Brew offers those in need of a
caffeine or sugar fix any spe-
cialty coffee they would like
and the sweetest treats to
boot. The Taste buffet offers
something not easily found,
extremely quality dishes in
a buffet setting. The chefs
at The Taste easily surpass
many of their bigger casino
city rivals for one of the best
quality buffets, ever.
The Sound offers a small-
er venue for bands and a
club-like atmosphere. In
the heart of it all is an open,
round bar with a water-wall
television, and plenty of so-
fas and cushy seating for
football fans to enjoy the
game round out the main


floor.
The spa offers every luxu-
ry treatment under the sun
and packages are available.
Reservations are required
for any spa service, as are
they required for one of the
more unlikely specialties of
the house: cooking classes.
Wind Creek has some
talented chefs and those
chefs spend some of their
time teaching classes and
providing demonstrations
to would-be chefs. In De-
cember, holiday meals and
edible ornament classes are
on the schedule of classes of-
fered.
If the hustle and bustle
of staying at the casino it-
self does not appeal to you,
there are two hotels within
an eighth of a mile and the
Wind Creek shuttle runs on
demand to anyone would
like to visit. The Musko-
gee Inn, next door to Wind
Creek, offers clean and af-
fordable rooms with an on-


site restaurant where good
service and tomato gravy
are still on the menu.
Whether it be a couples
get-away, a girls' week-
end or just a much-needed
break, visitors to the Wind
Creek Casino & Hotel will
be surprised by such a'pol-
ished, big game, big service
complex only a little more


that an hour away and off
the beaten path. It's a big
city casino environment
with a bigger dose of south-
ern hospitality. To see more,
go to: www.windcreekcasi-
no.com or look for them on
Facebook.

THE WIND CREEK CASINO & HOTEL is a $230 mil-
lion, luxury resort amid country homes and cotton fields
in Atmore, Ala. The Wind Creek could easily compete with
larger resort properties along the gulf coast.


A 17-STORY 236 ROOM world class hotel is part of the
255,000 square foot entertainment complex at Wind Creek.


THE OPEN, CENTER Bar in heart of the Wind Creek
Casino & Hotel provides a an particularly enjoyable place
to catch the game. every Saturday. The curved board ceiling
has been a design winner in various articular circles.

PAXTON

the Council agreed will off-
set the rise in postage costs
when mailing reminder
notices. While the Council
concurred on the necessity
for those two changes, the
proposed ordinance's final
change, one dealing with
an increase in the cost of
replacing a damaged and
or destroyed water meter,
is what ultimately divided
opinions.
Councilman Bobby Kemp
argued that individual citi-
zens should not be held re-
sponsible for the cost of re-
placing a meter head if it
was installed improperly
by city workers and should
therefore not have to come
before the Council at all.
However, City Attorney
Lori Bytell explained that
a provision had been made
within the proposed ordi-
nance allowing customers to
petition the Council in the
event *that a water meter
was damaged, with each in-
stance examined on a case-
by-case basis (the same way
the city already does with
one-time water bill waiv-
ers).
Bytell said this provision
simultaneously ensured due
process and gave the Coun-
cil the final determination
as to whether the customer
or the city should be held li-
able for the $106 it costs to
replace a damaged meter.
Furthermore, as it stands
now, the city is responsible
for replacing all damaged or
destroyed meters, regard-
less whether or not the units
were damaged through cus-


FROM PAGE 1-A

tomer negligence. The end
result is that Paxton has
been losing money on each
transaction by not charging
what it costs to replace the
meters.
"I can't think of a fairer
way to do it," Bytell said.
"We're proving a service and
that service should cover its
expenses. We're not trying
to break the backs of our
citizens but we need them
to pay what it costs us to do
[those services]. We can't go
broke doing our jobs."
After nearly a half-hour's
discussion and despite dis-
agreements over the pro-
posed ordinance's imple-
mentation, the Council
voted unanimously to ad-
vertise the ordinance for the
requisite two months before
it can be put to the vote for
final adoption.
The Council jumped from
one big issue to even more
divisive ones, this time two
dealing with the city's em-
ployees. The Council un-
equivocally agreed to give
employees a Christmas
"one-time pay raise" of $200,
the same amount they were
given last year, but vehe-
ment disagreement broke
out over annual employee
evaluations, which are usu-
ally carried out in concert
with the beginning of the
new fiscal year. Councilman
Tommy Mathis said it was
unfair for city employees to
have their evaluations writ-
ten by the three new Coun-
cil members since they had
not yet had sufficient time
to observe city personnel at


work.
In light of the fact that
city water crews in par-
ticular received a 3-percent
cost of living pay raise last
year (but have not received
a performance-based raise
in two years), Mayor Hay-
ward Thomas suggested
that those employees be giv-
en one this year also. Kemp
disagreed on the grounds
that many of the individu-
als comprising Paxton's tax
base are on seniors on fixed
income who may not be able
to afford to give city work-
ers a salary increase, much
less "to support their house-
holds."
"There are some people in
Paxton who are absolutely
not doing well," Kemp said.
"I'm here to represent all
the people of Paxton."
As the discussion heated
up with little sign of con-
sensus being reached, By-
tell suggested the issue be
tabled until after the first
of the year so as to ensure
all viewpoints before coming
to a decision. She said em-
ployee performance evalua-
tions and performance pay
raises often coincide for con-
venience's sake but can ac-
tually be given at any time
prior to May of the com-
ing year. The motion made
and seconded, the Council
agreed to revisit the issue in
January.
Having temporarily abat-
ed those items of conten-
tion, the Council hurried
through the remainder of
the agenda, which included
waiving rental fees of Pax-
ton's Agricultural Center
on Dec. 11 for a fundraiser
for a paralyzed woman in
the community. The Council
also announced that it will

begin reviewing applica-
tions for the recently open
housekeeper position with
the ultimate goal of narrow-
ing down the choices to the
three best candidates before
a final decision is made.
Thomas updated the
Council on the status of the
project to seed the grounds
of the city's wastewater
treatment plant in grass, an
action required by the Flor-
ida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. The may-
or said the whole process is
stymied because the person
originally hired to carry out
the task had not returned
phone calls from Town Hall,
Paxton faces what City
Clerk Susan Davis said are
"substantial fines of up to
$10,000" if it did not comply
with FDEP regulations. A
member of the community
in attendance at the meet-


ing suggested the Council
make contact with the agri-
cultural department at Pax-
ton School about planting
the field in rye grass (which
the school bales for hay), an
idea the Council agreed was
the best alternative.
The Council voted to get
a credit card for use by city
employees as an alterna-
tive to paying mileage to
city employees when travel
was necessary. The issue
was originally brought up
at last month's meeting but
was tabled until the city's
attorneys could review the
legal aspects of the propos-
al. Bytell said it was a good
idea to get a city-use credit
card because it was "a lot
cleaner financially" com-
pared to paying mileage so
long as the statement was
reconciled monthly and had
clearly established limits on


what could be spent.
"The problem isn't with
the credit card itself, it's
with the policy of use," By-
tell said. "Obviously, when
you reconcile the statement
if [there are problems follow-
ing the policy] then the per-
son using the card would be
responsible for that because
they violated city policy. I
don't foresee Paxton having
those kinds of issues. We're
very careful about our citi-
zens' money.

Before adjourning the
meeting, the new Council
members were appointed
to their new city depart-
ment assignments. Council-
man Charles Cook took over
parks and recreation, Travis
McMillian was appointed to
the water department and
Mathis was put in charge of
streets.

The turkey is not on

starting to look a lot
like a winter wonder-
land around Lake De-
Funiak as residents,
Walton Correction work
crews and members of
Christmas Reflections
busily hang lights, put
up displays, assemble
cutouts and prepare the
lake yard for this year's
Christmas Reflections.
Some new, some old
and some sentimen-
tal, it seems everyone
has a favorite and the
lights draw thousands
to this sleepy little lake
yard during the month
of December. Nomat-
ter what favorite each
person has, they can
all agree the lights bea-
con visitors to the De-
Funiak Springs area.
The light display opens
the weekend of Thanks-
giving and runs until
the first of the year.

THIS CHRISTMAS TREE thanks all those that have
and still serve to keep us safe.

JOY TO THE WORLD and to all the visitors who see the lights this Christmas season.

end.

By LEAH STRATMANN

Three very different
books are under scrutiny
this week, starting with
a volume by Alice Hoff-
man called Here on Earth.
The book begins innocently
enough with March Murray
returning to her hometown
after a 19-year absence to
attend to the funeral of her
childhood caregiver, Judith
Dale. She moves back into
her childhood home, a house
Dale has occupied in all the
intervening years. With her
is her churlish 15-year-old
daughter Gwen, who doesn't
want to be there, but finds it
better than being in school
in California. At home in
California is March's profes-
sor husband Hank.
Things start to shift from
the perfunctory business of
cleaning out a house and
attending to the details of
death, when March learns
her teenage lover and obses-
sion, Hollis is in town and in
fact owns the very home she
is staying in. Hollis owns a
great deal of the small town
in fact, although he lives a
Spartan existence on a farm
not far from the Murray
place.
When the two get togeth-
er, it is as if the interven-
ing years never happened.
There was a great deal of
drama before Hollis left her
and she waited three years
for him to return. When he
did not, she went to Califor-
nia and married Hank, who
had loved her for years. She
made a life for herself and
while it was not particular-


ly passionate or exciting, it
was comfortable.
In many ways this is a
very dark novel and riveting
in that the reader does not
know exactly what the next
page might hold. It is chock
full of passion, rebellion,
obsession, violence, control
and dominion. The writing
and supporting characters
are superb and provide rich
texture to the book. If you
are not familiar with Alice
Hoffman, read this book and
I can almost guarantee you
will be looking for others to
check out of the library.
A while back I enthused
over Lisa See's novel,
Shanghai Girls, so I decided
to borrow one of her earlier
works from the library. I se-
lected Snow Flower and the
Secret Fan and while the
writing was fine and I as-
sume the historical context
accurate, the book was sim-
ply too detailed to hold my
interest. I gave it 90 pages

Thanksgiving. Turkey.
Pies. Football games. Un-
zipped jeans. These are just
a few of the things we've
come to know and love about
the holiday that falls on the
fourth Thursday of Novem-
ber.

Ironically, very few un-
derstand the exhilaration
of a bountiful harvest since
most of us do our pickings at
a grocery store. Of course, as
children we learned about
the American Indians and
the Pilgrims celebrating a
full harvest, and we prob-
ably even did a little skit
about it. But we no longer
have to toil in the dirt, pray
for rain, and spend hours
in back-breaking work to
gather crops, which is why
Thanksgiving has always
seemed a bit undeserved to
me. Not that I don't love any
good reason to eat all day
and see loved ones, but I've
always felt a certain discon-
nect with Thanksgiving, as
if it were the holiday I was
afraid to look in the eye be-
cause I knew I was taking it
for granted.
The remaining 364 days a
year, I eat my three squares
(and several snacks) without
a formal grace, or acknowl-
edging my great fortune


and I was not fully engaged
so I returned it.
One section dealing with
the methods in which feet
were bound almost made me
sick. The detail was so me-
ticulous I could almost feel
the pain. Small feet were
prized and apparently found
sexy by Chinese men at this
time, but the agonies en-
dured by children to reach
the desired result were in-
humane.
As I said, there may be
a good novel in there some-
where; I simply did not have
the patience to find it. A lit-
tle less detail and a bit more
of getting to it would have
helped immeasurably.
A book that is rich in de-
tail, but not so much so the
story is obscured is Richard
Russo's Bridge of Sighs.
This is not a book that zips
along and could have ben-
efited from tighter editing,
but it was nonetheless an
enjoyable look at the lives of

Dear

Auntie

Em




Dear Auntie Em,
I grew up with two la-
dies that have been my best
friends since high school.
We always did everything
together. Recently, though,
I feel like I am being left out
of the loop.
I will admit our circum-
stances have changed. They
are both empty nesters with
husbands away on business,
often, and kids in college.
Me, I continue to struggle
to keep it together and have


at never having to wonder
about the certainty of my
next meal. On this day, how-
ever, as friends and family
gather to celebrate and give
thanks for the turkey, the
stuffing, the peas, the yams,
the desserts, an overfilled
plate reminds me that oth-
ers do have to wonder. Stuff-
ing doesn't go down as easily
after that.
So with that realization,
one would think I've spent
several holidays feeding the
less fortunate, but no. Do I
think about it, do I plan to
do it, only to wake up and
feel overwhelmed by how
much I need to do and how
rarely I see family from out
of town and talk myself into
staying right there in my
comfort zone, complete with
slippers, yes.
But knowing my child's
stomach is full means it is
unacceptable that there is a
child's whose isn't. So this
Thanksgiving, I intend to
hold myself accountable to
donating goods to one of the
many food drives (COPE,
Shelter House, Wal-Mart),
and making volunteering a
family event throughout the
year. Then just maybe with
a dose of daily gratitude, I'll
be able to look turkey-day in
the eye.


several people who inhabit a
small town in upstate New
York. The narrator of the
story, Lou C. Lynch (annoy-
ingly dubbed Lucy in first
grade) son of milkman Lou
Lynch, tells of his relation-
ship with his parents, Bob-
by Marconi, Sarah Berg, his
Uncle Dex and a whole cast
of small town characters in-
cluding a store called Ikey
Lubins.
The narration begins
when a 60-year-old Lucy
and his wife are preparing
for a trip to Venice where
childhood friend Bobby lives
and who has become a very
famous artist. Lucy doesn't
really want to leave Thoma-
son, but then he never did
want to leave, finding life
in the small town idyllic.
For reasons not explained,
he decides to write his life
story and commences to do
so, perhaps trying to tie up
all the ends of his life that
have led to this moment.
We meet a wide and wooly
bunch of characters and the
novel explores racism, soci-
etal barriers, poverty, igno-
rance, and sexual attraction.
There is a reason Russo won
the Pulitzer Prize for a pre-
vious novel and his talent is
in the spotlight in this book.
Don't expect it to be a quick
read. You will either jump
into it or find it boring, but
checking it out of the Wal-
ton County Library System
costs nothing, so what have
you got to lose?

Dear Alone,
I think it's only natu-
ral, not only what you are
feeling, but the changes in
your relationships. As you
have grown older, I can only
guess you have discovered
the natural ebb and flow of
relationships around you.
Some are lucky and keep
those few, close friends for
life. But even they have had
periods where they are more
or sometimes less in touch
with one another. It's natu-
ral. Life pulls you in differ-
ent directions and some-
times we have to ride it out.
Let your friends know
how you feel. They may al-
ready be worried about you,
and then work out some-
thing in your schedule to al-
low you to spend time with
them when you can. Oth-

erwise, don't sweat it. You
have a life and you have a
responsibility to yourself to
take care of yourself first.
There is also no rule
against making more or new
friends. You my find others
who you share a lot in com-
mon with now and they can
enrich your life just as much
as older friends can, if you
let. Bottom line: don't fear
the path of your friendships,
they will correct themselves
with a little guidance from
you and a new openness to
others who might be in your
same boat. Good luck and
God bless.

can't always afford the all
week vacays to New York
or the shopping excursions,
and since I have turned
down so many, I think they
are going to stop asking me.
I really need my friends

Movie Review


Unstoppable a real thrill ride


By BRUCE COLLIER
Tony Scott's Unstoppable
entertained me completely,
and kept me, if not on the
edge of my seat, at least
shifting around a lot in it.
Reportedly based on a true
event, the short (98 minute)
film wastes little time get-
ting down to its business.
Set in Pennsylvania, it's the
tale of how a series of neg-
ligent acts by two railroad
workers gradually accumu-
lated into a potential catas-
trophe.
A train is being moved off
a main track. The operator
jumps off the slow-moving
engine to correct a switch,
leaving the air brakes off
and the throttle on. The
train moves away too fast
for him to get back on, and
begins to accelerate, head-
ing mindlessly off into the


countryside. Just- to add
interest, it's towing several
cars full of toxic and explo-
sive materials. Eventually
it's barreling toward a town
of 750,000 inhabitants,
which has an elevated S-
track overlooking a field of
oil tanks. If the train takes
the curve at anything over
15 mph, it will derail and hit
the tanks like a missile. The
train is going 70 mph.
Fortunately, two railroad
guys are also on the track.
Veteran Frank Barnes (Den-
zel Washington) and newbie
Will Colson (Chris Pine)
are doing a training-day
run. Frank is about to be
forced into early retirement
and Will is going through
a sticky patch with his es-
tranged wife. Their sporadic
bickering is interrupted by
news of the impending di-
saster. Frank believes the
railroad management's solu-


tion (derail the train) won't
work. He has a better idea,
but it requires him and the
rookie to buck the system
and slow down the hurtling
juggernaut at great risk to
themselves (and all those
people in harm's way). Will
they succeed?
Naturally there's no ques-
tion they will, but that in
no way dilutes the interest
in what follows. Watching
all the narrow misses, last
minute switches and failed
attempts to slow down the
train some tragic, some
just dumb I was reminded
of how many times runaway
trains were used in silent
comedies. There's a really
fine line between thrilling
and ridiculous, and it may
be only a question of pacing.
Scott, no stranger to telling
this kind of story, layers it
on carefully, adding details
and bits of train lore to au-


thenticate his story. Rail-
roading experts may find it
preposterous, for all I know,
but the important thing is
that it works in the context
of the movie.
Having Denzel Wash-
ington at the throttle adds
plenty of credence. He is un-
questionably the star pres-
ence and anchor of the film,
but Scott does give him some
action hero-time near the
climax. Pine (who I last saw
as a young James T. Kirk
in the 2009 Star Trek film)
keeps up with Washington,
and the two do a good job
working with some occasion-
ally impossible dialogue.
There's a subplot involving
both men's family life, but
it's just there to flesh them
out. The real pleasure of
Unstoppable is watching a
couple of cool hands work-
ing the problem.


will highlight the second
part of the program with a
performance of the lovely
Gesu, Bambino. The favorite
White Christmas concludes
the program.
These Okaloosa Cham-
ber Singers concerts are
sponsored in part by a grant
from The Boeing Company.
The Florida Chautauqua,
Inc., also sponsors the De-
Funiak Springs concert and
will serve cookies and punch
following the performance.


Thanksgiving at home
If there is one thing I
know, it's that nothing feeds
the soul like home-cooked
meals, especially for the hol-
idays. No restaurant spread
can compare with mom's
stuffing, nana's pumpkin
cheesecake, or gram's chick-
en 'n dumplings.
Undoubtedly, I will be
more than well-fed this
Thanksgiving after brunch
with my parents, lunch with
my in-laws, and dinner with
extended family. Did I men-
tion Thanksgiving is man-
datory sweat pants day?
So on the day we make it
a point to be grateful for the
food on our plates, I want to
share one of the recipes that
keeps my sweet tooth well-
fed all year long.
Clark Gable cookies (aptly
named by myself because
they are rich, dark, and de-
licious)
2 1/3 cups all-purpose
flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks)
salted butter, softened to
room temperature
1 cup sugar


Concertgoers are encour-
aged to take a trip around
the lake to enjoy the mag-
nificent Christmas lights.
OCS concerts are free
to the public but donations
will be taken at the door.
For further information go
to okaloosachambersingers.

Overturf at 682-9651, or

Florida Chautauqua contact
number is (850) 892-2690.


1 cup firmly packed
dark or light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white chocolate
chips
1 1/2 cups semisweet
chocolate chips
1 cup almonds or wal-
nuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350
degrees. In a medium bowl,
combine the flour, cocoa
powder, baking soda, and
salt. Cream the butter and
sugars with an electric mix-
er. Add the egg and vanilla
and mix together. Add the
flour mixture and continue
mixing until just combined.
Add the chocolates and
nuts and mix until com-
bined. Using a small ice
cream scoop, drop the dough
two inches apart on sheet
pans lined with parchment.
Bake for 15 minutes (less for
a dark pan or fast cooking
oven).
Cool the cookies on the
cookie: heets. Serve with
tall glasses of ice cold milk.
These are perfect for black
Friday take-along snacks,
gives you just enough of a
sugar rush to sprint past
the crowds and wrestle over
the last plasma TV.
Happy Turkey Day!

Unconditional


Grace

Rev. Dr. G. Charles Satterwhite


Unconditional grace does
not mean unconditional
election. Unconditional
means without rules or reg-
ulations-especially human
rules. We are lost individu-
ally, and our responsibility,
or will is so powerful that
the only way that God steps
over our will is in judgment.
As we grow in years, we
become more experienced in
our clever ways of excusing
our sin. The world makes
sure that we are so busy
that we dare not stop to
question the condition of our
desperately wicked heart.
However, ignorance is inex-
cusable when it comes to a
just God who did everything
possible to provide a way of
salvation.
Jesus was certainly more
than a historical person who
lived in a human body. He
condescended to earth to
shed his blood as the only
acceptable sacrifice for tak-
ing away our sin. Please
understand, He did not save
us in our sin, but from our
sin. Ignorance before or af-
ter salvation toward sin is
unacceptable before a Holy
and just God. He forgives
sin as we confess sin, not
through osmosis.
There are so many people


that think all they have to
do to enter heaven is to join
a church, be baptized, or be
a good person-that is not
so! Heaven is a prepared,
place for a prepared people.
Heaven would not be heaven
if one sinner were allowed
entrance. The habitation of
heaven is where God who
is absolutely holy lives, and
saints of God have made it
through overcoming sin.
Any condition assigned
to grace would make grace
void. Grace is a gift, through
faith in Jesus Christ's sac-
rifice on a real cross of.suf-
fering. Prevenient grace is
grace that leads us to His
grace. As we become aware
of our sinful condition, we
become open to the Holy
Spirit who convicts of sin
and unrighteousness. His
Word opens our understand-
ing and faith comes alive as
we embrace the Christ who
died to save us from sin.
God's, judgment, and
righteousness is satisfied as
we walk humbly, and justly
before God. Justifying grace
is salvific. Then as we read
God's Word, pray and medi-
tate (reflect) upon God's
Word we begin a steady
growth. As we attend unto
worship, we develop hab-


REV. DR. G. CHARLES
SATTERWHITE

its of holiness, and become
aware that God has a re-
sponsible work for us to do.
We are in the world but
the people are more impor-
tant than the things of the
world. Our desire is to win
others to this wonderful
lifestyle of Christian faith.
This faith is a steady grow-
ing faith that develops the
inward journey. Quietness
becomes more important
than hearing ourselves, or
others as we listen to the
Holy Spirit speak.

If you are a Christian,
then you are only half-way
there. The experience of
grace is a responsible grace
to the one who saved us.
There are too many who
claim salvation, but are
merely living like they did
before salvation. The fruit
of salvation is change. This
means that we desire oth-
ers to be changed into His
likeness. We are part of the
company of believers who
are not ashamed to share
Christ to everyone we meet.


Your Laundry Is On The Line

By Ronnie McBrayer


My youngest son loves to
go to the "Confession Stand."
He doesn't want to make an
appointment with the local
priest, however. He wants a
Slurpy and an order of onion
rings. Since he first learned
to put words together, the
"Concession Stand" at any
sporting event is referred to
as the "Confession Stand."
Well "Amen" and pass the
ketchup.
Actually, Confession
Stands do exist, but they are
not slinging cold drinks and
hot food. With confession in
steep decline in the tradi-
tions that employ the sac-
rament, some parishes now
make it more readily avail-
able. You can find makeshift
confessionals out and away
from the steeple.
They are in shopping
malls, at the food court,
maybe even at a ball game.
They are supplied with ro-
tating priests who do the
work of absolution in shifts.
And some enterprising cler-
gy are even offering confes-
sion online.
Yes, it is now possible for
one to come clean via the
internet, be pardoned by
instant message, or to do
penance just as soon as God
answers his email. Just fill


out the proper online form
and wait for forgiveness to
arrive in your inbox. I am as
internet-friendly and as pro-
testing a Protestant as they
come, but this sounds suspi-
cious even to me.
In my growing-up tradi-
tion confession to a priest
was not required. Bap-
tists just couldn't bear the
thought. That and I came of
age out in the country where
everyone had a clothes line
rather than an electric dry-
er to dry their clothes. When
your bloomers and holey
socks (not holy socks) are
swinging in the breeze for
God and everybody to see,
there's not much left to hide.
I think that is the point.
"Confess your sins one
to another," the Apostle
James said, "that you may
be healed." These are hard
words to practice when we
have so privatized and indi-
vidualized our faith that we
prefer to hide our troubles,
struggles, and failures from
others. We keep our dirty
laundry stuffed in a dark,
putrid closet.
Yet, when we do not share
our lives one with another
- even the ugly parts we
miss out on the healing pow-
er the community of Christ


can offer. I know the objec-
tion: "But I don't want to be
a burden to someone else!"
Nonetheless, if we can't bur-
den one another with the
confession of our shortcom-
ings, then why continue to
play the charade of calling
each other "brother and sis-
ter?" We're not being real.
Granted, in some com-
munities of faith, confession
will do you no good. As soon
as those in the pews know
what you are wrestling with
in the dark night of your
soul, they will have your
drawers hanging on the line
for everyone to see. Still, we
all need someone to whom
we can bare our souls, some-
one who will help us carry
the load and point us toward
grace.

In the years I have spent
in Christian ministry I have
heard many confessions; at
hospital bedsides, in coffee
shops, in the church sanc-
tuary, in the back rooms of
funeral parlors, almost ev-
erywhere. I reckon I could
get a job at one of those new
improvised confessionals.
Rarely have these confes-
sions been a burden. Yes,
some have come as a sur-
prise. At times I have been


struck speechless, and many
admissions have left me so
broken hearted I thought I
would need a priest to ad-
minister last rites for my-
self. But the overwhelming
sensation I experience when
someone pours out their
pain is privilege.
See, when someone truly
confesses their burdens to
you, it is an honor that they
would unlock their pad-
locked secrets and ask for
help in carrying them. This
is why confession is so heal-
ing: It graces everyone in-
volved.

For those who bear their
souls, they find relief and
liberation, and for those
who hear and respond in
love, they participate in the
restoration of another. Then
both can "cast their cares on
Him who cares" for us all. So
give me your hand. We will
go to the Confession Stand
together.

Helen Keller quotes
(American Author)


"Both abundance and

in our lives, as parallel
realities. It is always our
conscious choice which se-
cret garden we will tend...
when we choose not to focus
on what is missing from
our lives but are grateful
for the abundance that's
present love, health,
family, friends, work, the
joys of nature and per-

Gratitude is the in-

Freeport scores regional semifinal



victory in dogfight with Liberty County


By REID TUCKER
Freeport proved itself to
be the top dog in the Class
1A regional semifinal foot-
ball game, overcoming the
visiting Liberty County
Bulldogs 27-14.
Though Freeport (9-
2) had to get past Liberty
County (9-2) to advance to
the regional finals last year
as well (the 35-20 score even
showed the same margin of
victory), the Nov. 19 match-
up played out very differ-
ently. Jordan Varner, Nick
Ellington and Caleb McCor-
mick all scored touchdowns
for Freeport, while Liberty's
came courtesy of Stedman
Williams and Alex Marlowe.
Freeport passed the ball for
165 yards and rushed for 89,
well short of its average 214
yards per game, while Lib-
erty County passed for only
28 but rushed for 275.
Essentially, the whole
game was a virtual dead
heat and saw the teams
trade blow for blow most of
the night. However, Free-
port's Dakota Davis made
two of his three touchdown
passes in the fourth quarter,
,including a last minute play
with 19 seconds left to go,
sealing the deal in favor of
the local Bulldogs.
Freeport coach Jim An-
derson said that last-minute
play to go up two touchdowns
over Liberty was more of a
calculated risk than it was
an icing-on-the-cake mo-
ment. He said if his team
punted it would still only be
up seven points and if the


ball went in the end zone
that would mean Liberty
would get it at the 20. Con-
versely, Liberty could have
gotten the ball on the 50-
yard line if a snap over the
punter's head went astray,
so it was decided that the
best course of action was to
make a fade pass and risk
Liberty getting the ball on
the 30 instead.
"We felt like it was a win-
win situation," Anderson
said. "It wasn't that we were
trying to run up the score,
we were trying to make it so
that we had a better chance
to win."
Thanks to that little bit
of strategy, Freeport did
indeed win. However, the
road to that final pass was
a tough one and the back-
and-forth tone of the game
got set early.
Both sides jockeyed for
position in the first quarter,
though neither set of Bull-
dogs scored a touchdown in
the period. Freeport made it
to a fourth-and-goal on the
20-yard line toward the end
of the period after facing sev-
eral delay-of-game penalties
and was forced to turn the
ball over on downs. Liberty
County took possession with
less than a minute left and
another penalty, this time
a 15-yard unsportsmanlike
conduct call, on Freeport
took the ball a further down-
field in Liberty's direction.
Ellington picked off a
stray pass from Liberty's
Nolan Brown with 7:51 re-
maining in the second quar-


ter and made a 30-odd-yard
dash to midfield before be-
ing brought down on the 42.
Freeport got a first down on
the next play thanks to a
five-yard penalty on Liberty
for a false start and rough-
ly 13 plays later Freeport
found itself fourth-and-two
within sight of the goal line.
Though a penalty put the
ball back on the 21, Davis
was undeterred, handing the
ball off to Ellington, who in
turn made an 18-yard pass
to Varner in the end zone
with 2:21 left (which he fol-
lowed up with a good point
after kick) to give Freeport
the 7-0 lead at halftime.
Freeport was handed an
unsportsmanlike conduct
before the third quarter
even began as the players
were late to take the field
due to, the bands' perfor-
mances running long. Seiz-
ing the opportunity and
starting on their 47-yard
line, Liberty County's of-
fense burned the clock on
an 11-play drive that saw
Brown hit Williams on a 15-
yard pass for a touchdown
and extra point at 6:41. The
first tie of the evening didn't
last long though, as Davis
fired a 20-yard pass to Mc-
Cormick, who ran the ball
the rest of the way to a 63-
yard touchdown.
The fourth quarter saw
the most explosive action of
the night, as Liberty County
again tied the score after
Freeport's David Wesson
fumbled on the 29-yard line.
Marlowe eventually ran the


ball 21 yards for another
touchdown, which coupled
by a spot-on point after
kick, made the score 14-all
with 9:34 left in the game.
Freeport returned fire from
its 37 with three consecu-
tive first downs, first via
the combined efforts of Da-
vis and Brandon Head and
later by Wesson, who ran to
the 23-yard line.
On the next play, McCor-
mick skirted around Lib-
erty's dogged d-line to catch
a pass from Davis for a com-
bined 19-yard touchdown at
6:15 to put Freeport back in
the lead 21-14. Liberty was
forced to punt on its next
possession, though Freeport
was too after it took over the
ball on the 37. However, on
Liberty's next (and penul-
timate) possession, McCor-
mick literally jumped for an
interception on the 35-yard
line with 1:42 left in the
game.
In an unexpected move,
Freeport then drove the
ball to a fourth-and-eight
play with just 26 seconds
remaining. Davis found El-
lington in the end zone for
a 32-yard touchdown seven
seconds later and, though
Varner missed the kick,
Liberty's fate was all but
sealed. Driving the point
home, Head came around
the outside to sack Liberty's
Brown on the last posses-
sion and Freeport took the
win 27-14.
Anderson commended
his players, saying they
had "earned the honor of


practicing on Thanksgiv-
ing," as the Bulldogs must
face Northview at home on
Friday. Though Freeport
all but walked away with a
27-13 win over the Chiefs
in the regular season, An-
derson said both Northview
and Blountstown, the other
potential team the Bulldogs


might have had to face were
tough opponents. Neverthe-
less, he is confident Free-
port is ready to take on all
comers.
"We're just glad to be
playing," Anderson said.
"We don't care who we play.
As long as we win, we don't
care." t

Turnovers End Walton's Season


By PATRICK CASEY
Turnovers did the Walton
Braves in on the road at Tay-
lor County in a first round
Class 2B playoff game. The
Bulldogs returned three in-
terceptions for touchdowns
in the second quarter of play
to take a 34-0 lead into the
locker room at halftime as
the home team picked up
a 41-13 victory to end the
Braves' football season.

Walton fell behind on the
Bulldogs opening possession
of the night as the host squad
marched 83 yards to take a
7-0 lead as quarterback Eli
Grambling ran in from nine
yards out for the score. The
Bulldogs would never trail
in the contest as the Braves
suffered from poor field po-
sition in the first half of play
and were often penalized to
further complicate their at-
tempts to move the football.
Walton's Deon Lee
blocked a punt midway
through the first quarter
to set the Braves up at the
Bulldogs 46-yard line but
the offense could not pick up


a first down and punted the
ball away.
The Braves kept the Bull-
dogs out of the endzone on
their next possession but
Taylor County was able
to pin the Braves at their
own nine-yard line after a
punt. Disaster struck on
the Braves' ensuing posses-
sion as senior quarterback
Liam Miller was picked off
by safety Jalen Jackson,
who promptly returned the
pigskin 28 yards for a touch-
down and a 13-0 lead with
9:46 left in the first half.
After starting at their
own six-yard line on their
next possession, the Braves
lost the football via a fumble
on a fourth down run by
Miller that set the Bulldogs
up at Walton's 35-yard line.
Taylor County used 10
plays to put more points on
the scoreboard as Gram-
bling ran in from two yards
out for a 20-0 lead.
The worst was yet to come
as Miller was picked off two
more times with James
Houston returning the foot-
ball 14 and 31 yards for two


more touchdowns and a 34-0
halftime lead.
Walton did not quit as
the Braves put points on
the board for the first time
on their second possession
of the second half as a 90-
yard drive was capped off
by Miller's two-yard run to
cut the lead to 34-6. Conona
Tarrant's 57-yard catch and
run was the key play in the
drive for the Braves.
Taylor County was un-
fazed by the score as they
needed less than a minute to
strike back as running back
Jacques Freeman raced in
from 18 yards out on the fi-
nal play of the third quarter
to push the lead to 41-6.
Walton put together a 65-
yard drive on their next pos-
session with center Jacob
Kemp catching a deflected
pass off the arms of team-
mate Quamille Williams for
a two-yard touchdown on a
fourth down play. The grab
was one of the few lucky
breaks the Braves caught on
the night and cut the lead to
41-13. Walton had one final
drive end inside the Bull-


dogs' 15-yard line as time
ran out on the Braves sea-
son.
Miller passed for 242
yards in his final start in a
Walton uniform but tossed
four interceptions. Walton
wound up with five turn-
overs on the night after hav-
ing seven turnovers in their
2009 playoff loss to Florida
High.

Conona Tarrant led Wal-
ton with four catches for
87 yards while Miller had
44 rushing yards on the
ground.
Tony Jackson ran for 109
of the Bulldogs 207 rushing
yards on the night as the
three interception returns
for touchdowns kept Taylor
County's offense on the side-
lines for a majority of the
second quarter.

Walton (7-4) saw 19 se-
niors play their final game
in the loss with Miller end-
ing his career with 6,143
passing yards, believed to
be second only to Jason
Roulhac's 7,326 yards.

Friday night to earn a re-
match with the Freeport
Bulldogs on November 26.
Northview scored 13 unan-
swered points in the sec-
ond half while chewing up
huge chunks of clock to stun
the District 2 champions
in Blountstown. Roderick
Woods scored on a one-yard
run with 5:15 to go in the
third quarter to give the
Chiefs the lead as North-
view got 149 yards rushing
from him on the night. The
Chiefs ended any hope of a
comeback by the home team
with a fourth quarter drive
that took over 10 minutes
off the clock while using 19
plays to go 77 yards. Woods
scored on a four-yard run
with 3:45 to play for the fi-
nal margin.
Pensacola Catholic will

White cut the margin to 24-
21 with a 20-yard run from
J.R. Dixon with 9:20 to play
in the game only to see the


Crusaders put together a
drive that ate up more than
six minutes of the clock as
Sumler scored on a 27-yard
run to put away the visiting
squad.

Paxton Defeats Walton 40-34


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
scored the final six points of
the game to pull out a 40-
34 victory over the Walton
Braves last week.
Alyssa Dupree was the
star of the show as she scored
16 of the Bobcats' 40 points
on the night, including 6-of-
7 free throws to help Paxton
rally from a 17-9 first quar-
ter deficit.
Walton looked primed to
pick up the win early on as
four different players scored
in the first period to help
the Braves to a hot start. It
was downhill from there as
Walton struggled with 23
turnovers on the night while
shooting only 12-of-45 from
the floor.
Krysten Cuchens sup-


plied long distance shoot-
ing for the visiting team as
she scored 14 points in the
contest. The Bobcats wound
up with 17 turnovers on the
night and shot only 13-of-49
from the floor, yet found a
way to win on the road.
Paxton led 22-20 at half-
time and went off on an early
run in the third quarter only
to see Walton chip away at
the deficit and close within
31-30 after three quarters of
play.
Gillian Infinger and Sier-
ra Contreras led the Braves
with six points apiece in the
loss as the Braves did not
make a shot from the field
in the second quarter.
Walton rebounded to post
their first district win of the
season on Thursday with


a 44-34 victory at Chip-
ley. Taliah Moore led the
Braves with 13 points while
Lynn Paulk added 10 as the
Braves improved to 2-1 on
the year.

Paxton's second game did
not go as well as the first as
Choctaw bombed the Bob-
cats 65-37 to drop Paxton
to 1-1 on the year. Krysten
Cuchens was the only play-
er in double figures in that
contest with 14 points.
Game Notes: It was an
odd game in the series be-
tween Walton and Paxton
as the play was very uneven
for both sides as can happen
in an early season contest.
Paxton holds a 26-9 advan-
tage in the series dating
back to the 1992-93 season.

PDL Girls Win Opener


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates shot out to a 29-4
lead after one quarter of
play as they won their sea-
son opener 59-25 over the
South Walton Seahawks on
November 16.
Pirates senior Hillary
Harper scored 10 of her 16
points in the first eight min-
utes of play as the home
team forced a myriad of turn-
overs from the Seahawks in
building an insurmountable
lead. The Pirates scored the
first 14 points of the game in
just over two minutes of ac-
tion as South Walton coach
Kevin Craig had to burn a
timeout to settle down his
young squad.
The Pirates Kaitlyn Car-
roll banked in a three-point
shot as the buzzer for half-
time sounded to give the


home team a 45-16 lead at
the break. PDL outscored
the Seahawks 16-12 in
the second quarter though
South Walton settled down
to play much better basket-
ball in the period.
The Pirates built their
lead to 35 points early in the
third quarter to trigger a
running clock and held a 53-
16 lead with less than three
minutes to play in the pe-
riod. The Seahawks scored
the last five points of the
quarter to trail 53-21 after
24 minutes of the contest.
Both teams shuttled play-
ers in and out of the lineup
on the night with South
Walton using the three-
point shot to try and climb
back into the game. It was
not to be, as the Seahawks
came up empty from behind
the arc for most of the night


in falling to the Pirates.
The Pirates' Jasmine
Flock had a strong game
with 12 points and several
rebounds to start scoring
opportunities for the host
squad.
Tayler Menard led the
Seahawks with nine points
in the game as South Wal-
ton struggled with turn-
overs and poor shooting in
their season opener.
The two teams will face
each other again near the
end of the regular season on
Thursday, Jan. 27, at South
Walton High School.
Game Notes: PDL won
the junior varsity contest
36-24. PDL coach Tim Alford
saw his 16th season begin
with a solid performance by
an experienced club. Alford


holds a record of 327-132 at
the school. PDL is 31-16 in
18 playoff appearances with
two state championships
(1989 and 2000). The Pi-
rates are 7-0 against South
Walton in the series history
between the two teams. PDL
is 59-8 at home in the last 5+
seasons. The season opening
loss was only the second for
Kevin Craig in seven years
with the Seahawks. The
Seahawks lost to Walton in
Craig's first season opener
at South Walton to start the
2004-05 season. Kevin Craig
is 110-57 in 6+ seasons at
the school. PDL improved
to 2-0 with a 49-20 win at
Bethlehem on November
16. Sha-Lea Yates led the
Pirates with 13 points while
Hillary Harper scored 10


points in the battle between
two Holmes County foes.
The Pirates added a third
win in the opening week
of play with a 62-19 beat-
ing of Pensacola Christian.

Braves soccer team beaten by Rocky Bayou



at home, routs Chipley on the road


By REID TUCKER
A dominant post-halftime
performance was not enough
for Walton's boys soccer
team to mount a comeback
against the Rocky Bayou
Christian Knights, who won
the game 3-1.
Rocky Bayou established
a commanding lead early, as
after just 10 minutes of play
freshman Chan Lee had al-
ready scored twice, making
deep shots past Walton's
goalkeeper, Clay Perment-
er. The Braves had little
answer to Lee's goals and,
despite several attempts to
score from Francisco Estra-
da, Carlos Morales and oth-
ers, Walton seemed unable
to find the corner of the net.
In the meantime, Yante Be-
liveau added another goal to
the Knights' tally before the
half.
Walton returned from
halftime with an increased
aggressiveness that saw the
team's forwards keep the
ball on Rocky Bayou's side
of the field for the majority
of the time remaining. How-


ever, while the Braves kept
their opponents from scor-
ing again, they managed
only one goal of their own
in the half in spite of plenty
of pressure from Ricardo
Ramirez, though his shots
went just wide (or in some
cases over) the goal. Ulti-
mately it was Estrada who
scored on a penalty shot
shortly following the return
halftime after he got blind-
sided with a tackle by one of
Rocky's players.

In the final minutes of
play, Rocky Bayou played
keep-away, running the
clock down before Walton
could salvage a comeback,
which ended the game 3-1
in favor the Knights.
Walton coach Steve Ste-
phenson said the 3-1 loss
might well have been avert-
ed if ace midfielder Ramirez
hadn't been unavailable in
the first half due to illness
(he came to the field in time
for the second half). Though
Walton (1-3) failed to put up
a win against Rocky Bayou,


they got their chance at re-
demption with a game on
the road against Chipley the
following day. The Braves
beat the Tigers 6-1 in a dis-
trict matchup, one of 10 this
season.
Permenter had six saves
in the face of 18 shots on goal
from Chipley. On offense,
the Braves scored three
goals off Ricardo Ramirez
and two off of Armando
Ramirez. Andrew Shipman
rounded out Walton's scor-
ing with one goal.
Stephenson said the
team's strong second-half
showing against Rocky Bay-
ou and its win at Chipley are
proof the Braves can give a
good account of themselves
in the 19-game season.
"We played right there
with [Rocky Bayou] in the
second half," Stephenson
said. "It's like we were a
completely different team.
Once .we settled down we
did very well. If we can put
it together and play a whole
game like we did the second
half, I have no doubt we'll


see some wins."
Walton's boys travelled
to face the South Walton


Seahawks on Monday eve-
ning, though details were
not available at press time.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2010 PAGE 13-B

2010 Ironfest Challenge sees 14 world records broken


By REID TUCKER
Bench press world record
holder Jeremy Hoornstra
broke the American Pow-
erlifting Association's un-
equipped bench press record
with a lift of 600 pounds
at the 2010 Ironfest Chal-
lenge.
Additionally, seven other
participants set a combined
13 APA world .records in
various events at the first
annual Ironfest, held Satur-
day, Nov. 13, in DeFuniak
Springs. Nevertheless, the
biggest lift of a day of big
lifts was without a doubt
Hoornstra's record-smash-
ing bench press, which the
Leesburg, Fla. native pushed
with little apparent effort
despite having strained his
shoulder three weeks prior
to the meet.
Hoornstra is no stranger
to breaking records, as he
broke the all-federation
242-pound weight division's
29-year-old unequipped
(that is, without the use of
a lifting suit) world record
of 582 pounds with a maxi-
mum bench of 605 pounds in
2006. Later that year, at the
Mr. Olympia competition
(considered the pinnacle of
the sports of power lifting
and bodybuilding), he raised
the bar even further with a
615-pound lift. Hoornstra's
continued his winning ways
at the 2010 Ironfest, break-
ing the previous APA record
of 507 pounds by nearly 100
pounds.
Even though he will com-
pete in Moscow with a U.S.
power lifting team against
the best European lifters in
six weeks' time, Hoornstra


said "there's no such thing
as a little meet." Neverthe-
less, he said he was taking
his recent shoulder injury
into consideration during
the Ironfest lift, or else he
might have increased his
world record five pounds to
an even 620.
"It's all in my head at this
point," Hoornstra said. "I
thought [the Ironfest Chal-
lenge] would be a great way
to get back into it but I was
nervous to hurt myself be-
fore Russia."
Thanks to his sev-
eral world records in the
242-pound division, Hoorn-
stra is already among the
best pound-for-pound lift-
ers in the world, something
that would be solidified by
a 635-pound lift in Russia.
However, he doesn't plan
to stop after achieving the
pound-for-pound title. After
Moscow, Hoornstra's ulti-
mate goal is to have benched
715 pounds, the largest
amount by any unequipped
lifter at any weight in his-
tory and just 15 pounds
heavier than his personal
best gym record, in competi-
tion by late 2011.
"It's a lot different than
lifting in the gym," he said.
"Nobody is watching your
form there and you can
cheat a little. In competition
you have to do it perfectly.
The whole pound-for-pound
thing is overrated. The
heaviest weight is all any-
one remembers, so that's
what I'm going for."
Not to let the guest lifter
have all the glory, partici-
pants from as far away as
Tennessee and Louisiana


competed events including
the "full power," a combined
total of all the maximum
weights lifted in the squat,
the bench press and the dead
lift, and individual contests
for those disciplines.
Aside from Hoornstra,
seven other lifters (both
men and women) in various
weight and age divisions
set world records of their
own, including four from
114-pound Marsha Long
alone. Other notable per-
formers were John Newby,
who set records in the squat
(700 pounds), bench press
(500 pounds) for a combined
total of 1,800 pounds (also
a record in the 341-pound
weight division) and 61-year-
old Patrick Canal who set
a Men's Masters record in
the unequipped bench press
with a lift of 300 pounds.
In the 220-pound divi-
sion, Roosevelt Dial III dead
lifted 700 pounds to set a
Men's Open raw record in
that event, while Joe Cseko
did the 'same in the Men's
Masters raw division, pull-
ing 500 pounds. Finally,
Scott Reid set a record of 605
pounds in the 220-pound di-
vision's squat competition
and the Ironfest's record-
breaking was rounded out
by Paul Wallace, who com-
peted in the same weight di-
vision's Men's Masters full
power event. Wallace set a
record of 715 pound on the
raw squat and a total weight
record of 1,750 pounds.
Also in attendance at the
meet was Andy Bowen, who
wowed the audience with
an 800-pound squat at the
2010 Emerald Coast Pow-
er Expo in August. Bowen
repeated the feat, saying
the lift was "as easy as I've
ever pushed 800." He got a
combined weight of 1,990
pounds in the 220-pound
equipped full power Men's
Open, wlile also pulling 625
pounds in the Men's Open
equipped dead lift competi-
tion, though that number is


short of his 705-pound per-
sonal best in the event.
Bowen planned to go for
835 pounds in the squat por-
tion of the full power com-
petition, but scratched the
800-pound lift on his second
attempt. Bowen, who works
as the strength and condi-
tioning coach for the foot-
ball team of Montgomery's
Alabama Christian Acad-
emy, said the busy season
has kept him from getting in
the kind of training needed
to set a new personal record
on the squat, dead lift and
bench.
"Maybe I had 835 in me
today, maybe I didn't," said
Bowen. "It just didn't hap-
pen for me today. I've been
coaching football all season
and it's hard to train like
you need to if you're going
to be competing. I'm going
to take some time off and
really get ready before my
next competition."
In addition to the power
lifting competitions, the
2010 Ironfest also hosted a
strongman competition open
to North American Strong-
man members and novices
alike. Participants in four
different divisions competed
for points in five different
events including "World's
Strongest Man" -style Atlas
Stones, a sand bag carry and
a max-repetition dead lift.
Tanner Adkinson of Mobile,
Ala. won the hotly contested
Novice Superheavyweight
division, beating the other
five contestants in three of
the five events.
The final contest at the
event was the much-hyped
bench press-for-reps com-
petition, with men lifting
their bodyweight and wom-
en going for half their body-
weight. Hoornstra walked
away with the men's compe-
tition, pushing 244 pounds
an astounding 49 times,
though he was trailed by
Bowen's 30 reps at 205
pounds. On the women's
side, the title went to JoJo


ANDY BOWEN, of Montgomery, Ala., matched his per-
sonal record of 800 pounds on the squat, though he wasn't
able to shoot for the 835pounds he intended. (Photo by Reid
Tucker)

UNDOUBTEDLY THE BIGGEST thing to come out
of the 2010 Ironfest was the performance of all-federation
242-pound world record holder Jeremy Hoornstra. He bested SHELLY STEWART, Hoornstra's girlfriend, competed
his own world record with a 615-pound unequipped bench in her first-ever meet at the 2010 Ironfest. The couple often

OFFICIALLY, 100 PEOPLE came out to the 2010 APA Ironfest Challenge, but Meet Director Bobby Myers said there
were definitely more than that in attendance. "Not everybody signed in like they were supposed to," he said, chuckling.

Brasseaux who racked up
64 repetitions of 75 pounds
(perhaps not coincidentally,
she also won the Women's
Open and Women's Masters
bench press contest with a
press of 265 pounds).
Ironfest Meet Direc-
tor Bobby Myers said ev-
erything from the level of
competition in the various
events to the records broken
to the public's participa-
tion exceeded his expecta-
tions for what he called the
"first of many" Ironfests to
come. Myers, a nationally
recognized body builder and
power lifter in his own right,
said next year's event will be
even bigger and will include
vendors, which he was not
able to secure for the inau-
gural meet.

The main reason to in-
clude vendors (and also to


charge an admission fee) is
to offset the costs of host-
ing the event, the funds for
which came entirely out
of Myers' pocket. To make
sure that everything is set
for next year's Ironfest, My-
ers said he plans to go be-
fore the DeFuniak Springs
City Council in December
to present his case. He said
the whole reason he decided
to host such an event was
to expose the public to new
sporting opportunities avail-
able to them locally.
"There's never been [an
event] like this in our area
before," Myers said. "Many
people have never seen this
level of competition in the
sport before. I think today
went a long way toward get-
ting more people in the area
interested in power lift-
ing. It's a great sport to get
into."

at the Class A cross country
meet in Dade City on Satur-
day. Graziani posted a time
of 17:04.16 which was a little
over 94 seconds behind the
winner's time of 15:29.79.
In 2009, Graziani finished
18th at the state meet with
a time of 16:51.08.
South Walton's Jacob
Leuze finished in 38th place
at the Class 2A state meet
in Dade City with a time
of 16:51.54. Leuze finished
52nd as a freshman in the
Class A meet in 2008 with a
time of 17:36.
South Walton's wrest-
ing team finished in second
place at the Clash of the
Champions quad meet that
they hosted on Nov. 17.
The Seahawks edged Mari-
anna 42-39 and Panama
City Rutherford 48-30 but
fell to Panama City Boze-


man 54-18. Justin Dunwald
(171-pound division) and
Josh Seilhan (152-pound
division) each posted 3-0
records while Jacob Parker
(215-pound division) scored
the decisive win in defeating
Marianna. The Seahawks
will take part in a four-team
match in Milton on Thurs-
day, Dec. 2.
Florida Atlantic Uni-
versity has signed Alison
Milam to a softball scholar-
ship. Milam is a senior from
Gulf Breeze who plays pri-
marily catcher for the Dol-
phins, but can play all over
the field. Milam has won a
national championship with
the Mizuno Gold. She was
named All-State third team
as a sophomore and Pensa-
cola News-Journal Player of
the Year as a junior.
The Jacksonville Univer-
sity (JU) football team sea-
son came to an end on Sun-
day morning as the Football


Championship Subdivision
committee denied the Dol-
phins an at-large bid. Jack-
sonville's season ends with
a 10-1 record and the second
Pioneer Football League
title in the last three years.
The Dolphins also earned a
win on the road at Old Do-
minion, who had jumped
into the at-large discussion
in the final weeks. The only
blemish to JU's record was
a loss at Appalachian State,
the top-seeded team in the
playoffs. Jacksonville rose to
No. 18 in the Fathead.com/
Sports Network poll released
early Sunday morning. "I
think we're all very disap-
pointed with the decision
right now," said JU director
of athletics Alan Verlander.


"We had a great season and
our disappointed by the se-
lection process. I want to
thank our seniors for their
hard work and leadership

Walton County taxpayers
were able to save on time
and gasoline this month due
to a program of the office of
Walton County Tax Collec-
tor Rhonda Skipper.
For the fifth year, Skip-
per and her employees have
taken their office into com-
munities in different areas
of the county to accept tax
payments.The program is
known as Remote Area Tax
Express or RATE.
Locations for the program

"Anything we can do to
help the people and make it
a little easier on them, we're
glad to do it," Skipper said.
Skipper initiated the
RATE program in Walton
County upon taking office
five years ago.
The program was a suc-
cess with Miramar Beach
residents on Nov. 19, with
more than 50 of them pay-
ing their taxes that day at


the Miramar Beach Fire
Station on Geronimo Street.
Brian McBroom of the
tax collector's office said one
person came by on his lunch
break to pay his taxes and
one did so on a break from
work. He added that some
people said they appreci-
ated being able to talk with
someone from the tax collec-
tor's office in person and get
questions about their taxes
answered.
"We're glad to have the
opportunity to talk with
them," he said.


Eden mansion decorated for Christmas season


Story and photos by
JEFFREY POWELL
On Tuesday, Nov. 16, over
65 ambitious volunteers
converged on Eden State
Garden's Wesley House to
prepare the mansion for
Christmas. The homes mul-
tiple rooms were alive with
activity as several civic
groups and volunteer orga-
nizations were represented.
Starting on Nov. 19 visi-
tors to the home can vote
on their favorite room. The
contest continues through
Jan. 1, 2011. Last year's
winner was the blue "Birds
of Paradise" bedroom deco-


rated by the ladies of Wind-
swept. The "Coastal Victo-
rian Christmas" parlor is
again being decorated by
the Green Thumb Garden
Club. Last year the club was
awarded the National Gar-
den Club award for decora-
tion of historic buildings. All
of the decorators are volun-
teers who donate their time
and efforts to beautifying
the home.
"This is a wonderful
day, it is so exciting to see
all these efforts come to-
gether," said House Decora-
tion Event Chairman Tricia
Sloan. "Not only is this good


for the season it is also good
for the park. Christmas time
brings in more revenue and
it gives the park the public-
ity it deserves. To see the
house after it is decorated
is great. I want to thank all
of the Friends of Eden vol-
unteers and supporters that
have shown up and given of
the time and funds. These
people give of themselves
out of the goodness of their
hearts. This is a fairly eclec-
tic group and they are all
appreciated."

Catwalk 2-1-1 in


Miramar Beach


By LEAH STRATMANN
Photos by Jeffery Patrick
Judging by the huge
smiles on all the faces you
saw, Catwalk 2-1-1 was
the place to be last Satur-
day night when Community
Walton unveiled the Men
Who Service Walton Coun-
ty calendar and with each
month's designated man
taking a strut down the cat-
walk at the Embassy Suites
Hotel. The pre-party got
started with enough time
for attendees to have some
adult beverages and get
ready to cat call when the
chosen men revealed them-
selves. Those selected had
been under strict orders of
secrecy for weeks.
Local actress and all
around clown Teance Black-
burn got the crowd to giggle
as she showed off her array
of glorious jewelry on loan to
her by McCaskill and Com-
pany and generally revved
up the group to get them
ready to party. Not only did
Blackburn do duty as an en-
tertainer, she cleverly wrote
a script that weaved togeth-
er the man of the month
with many of the auction
items up for grabs after the
strutting was over.
In all, 12 men who serve


the citizens of Walton Couit-
ty now grace a very hand-.
some catalog. Starting with;
Mr. January and continuing;
through the year, the men;
are Jamie Huggins, Henryi
Nooe, Paul Hunter, Mike'
Griggs, Benjamin Tan-
dy, David Hopkins, Sean
Hughes, Stephen Brinker,
Jeffery M. McVay, Patrick
Ferry, Brook Stetler, and
Tilman Mears. The men
represent law enforcement,
fire fighters, teachers, cler-
gymen, businessmen, and
physicians. All worked hard
to rehearse for the show and
they were clearly having
as much fun as the people
watching them.
Crowned Man of the Year
for 2011 was Lane Rees who
emerged victorious after an
online vote.
With ticket sales, auction
items, and calendar sales,
Community Walton is more
then halfway to its goal of
having enough money to in-
stall a 2-1-1 social services
hotline for the region. The
number of businesses and
people who came together
to make this a seamless
and successful charity event
are too numerous to men-
tion. Members of SHOC,

Every year at Thanksgiv-
ing, along with stuffing my
face, I take stock of the new
things I have to be grateful
for over the past year. Each
and every day I give thanks
for the tender mercies in my
life such as my brain chemi-
cals that appear to be in
balance. Somehow I think
mental illness is far more
painful than any physical
malady and I'm very grate-
ful I have not had to experi-
ence this particular form of
illness.
I Along with my daily
thanks for mental health,
I'm grateful to have a job I
thoroughly enjoy and one
that enables me to keep an
air controlled roof over my
head, food in my fridge, and
kibble in the dogs' bowl. It's
nice to work with profes-
sional colleagues who are
as nice as they are talented
journalists. Being happy in
your work is far more re-
warding than any amount
on a paycheck.
I'm thankful to my sib-
lings for a variety of things,
but mostly because they are
my only family and I would
hate to be hanging out in
this world all alone.
During this past year
it has been my pleasure to
meet some people who have
enriched my life by their
commitment to this commu-
nity and their willingness to
sacrifice time, money, and
energy to make a difference.
First of these are Chuck
and Ann Tucker who saw a
big need in the Bruce com-
munity to provide food to
the rural poor. Rather than
wring their hands and wait
for the powers that be to do
something, they formed the
Rural Relief Fund, managed
to get some used trailers do-


WRWF

Federated (WRWF) at the
group's Nov. 17 meeting in
Miramar Beach. Hall also
touched on issues now fac-
ing the health care field.
"Health care is a product
of our communities," Hall
said.
Strong community sup-
port for the establishment
of a hospital to serve south
Walton County, along with
the donation of a site for the
facility by the St. Joe Com-
pany, paved the way for
stateapproval for the hospi-
tal and the beginning of its
construction in 2001. Sacred
Heart of the Emerald Coast
opened in early 2003.
The 58-bed hospital is
a. member of Ascension
Health, the nation's largest
Catholic nonprofit health
system.
Hall- said the hospital,
which opened with a staff of
145, now has 560 employees
and 250 volunteers.
In November, Sacred
Heart of the Emerald Coast
was selected for the second
year in a row as a recipient
of the 2010 Summit Award,
in recognition of the facil-
ity's commitment to main-
taining excellence in health
care and patient satisfaction
and its dedication to im-
provement. The award was
bestowed by Press Ganey,
a 25-year-old company that
works with over 10,000
heath care facilities and or-
ganizations all over the U.S.
to improve their clinical
and operational success. In
2008, the hospital received
the 100 Top Hospitals Ever-
est Award from the global
healthcare information com-
pany Thompson Reuters, in
recognition of the facility's
performance with clinical
quality, patient satisfaction,
and other aspects of its op-
eration.
"Our success is the result
of community support," Hall
told the WRWF members.
He noted that over the eight
years that the hospital has


nated, secured non-profit
status, and opened a food
pantry. Chuck was laid off
from his aerospace job about
a year ago. When that door
closed, a window of selfless
opportunity presented itself
and Chuck took the neces-
sary classes to become cer-
tified by the USDA to run
the pantry. In October, the
first shipment of food from
the USDA arrived, but the
pantry was up and running
months before that first
shipment came in, stocked
from local donations and
money-much of the money
from Ann and Chuck. The
Tuckers have done all this
with very little assistance
from government entities,
but with a lot of help from
community organizations
that have hosted fundrais-
ers, put out boxes for food
donations, and helped to
man the pantry when it is
open.
One organization helping
with the pantry is the Stu-
dents Helping Our Commu-
nity (SHOC) the youthful
and very energetic arm of
Community Walton. Com-
munity Walton is dedicated
to trying to help fix needs
they see in the community
on a variety of levels and
their fearless leader is Jane
Burns, a powerhouse in
waif form. This organiza-
tion is relatively new, but
their accomplishments are
somewhat staggering. They
lobbied successfully to get
CHELCO and the DeFuniak
Springs Electric Company to
change their bills so people
could donate extra money for
those who need assistance
in paying for electric ser-
vice. They have also taken
an active lobbying role with
helping the Muscogee Na-


LEAH STRATMANN


tion of Florida achieve fed-
eral recognition as a tribe,
something the Muscogee
have been working on for
more than 60 years. They
are also actively working on
securing funding to install a
2-1-1-clearinghouse hotline
in the region to help those
with a need for non-emer-
gency social services.
These people who started
out as sources for stories and
who will continue to be that,
have also been something of
an inspiration to me to try
and help my neighbors in
any way that I can. I contrib-
ute monthly in a small way
to the food pantry because I
can't stand the idea of any-
one in my zip code going
hungry when every breath-
ing entity in my household
can fill their empty bellies
every day. It has graphical-
ly demonstrated to me how.
very fortunate I am and pro-
duced in me an intense de-
sire to give as much as I can
to help others as a prayer of
thanks. I'm grateful for this
awakening and hope doors
like this continue to open for
me during the next year.
Happy Thanksgiving all.

been open, $30 million has
been raised in the area to
provide "high-quality com-
passionate health care to
our community."
Hall explained that, as
a charity hospital, Sacred
Heart of the Emerald Coast
provides over $2 million
worth of uncompensated
health care per month. The
emergency room, he said,
sees approximately 2,000
patients per month, most of
whom have no funding.
Approximately 300 pa-
tients are admitted to the
hospital each month, over
400 surgeries are performed,
Hall commented, and 100
physicians are now on staff.
The hospital's Family
Birth Place, which opened in
September 2007, celebrated
its 2,000th delivery in July
2010. The birth place fea-
tures suites for delivery and
recovery and emphasizes
family involvement with the
birth process.
Hall said a $35-million
expansion project is planned
within the next two years to
add additional beds to the
hospital. He also said the
hospital is preparing for an
expansion in the heart and
vascular services program.
Hall identified impend-
ing Medicare cuts and cuts
in physician reimbursement
as huge issues on the health
care horizon. The rising
obesity rate is among the
factors increasing the cost
of U.S. health care, which
is already eight percent or
more above what most coun-
tries spend per percentage
of Gross Domestic Product,
he explained.
Hall told the group that,
despite the higher spending,
the United States is ranked
31st in the world for healthy
life expectancy.
Hall's assessment was
that the United States was
headed to a single-payer
system for health insurance.
"I'm not sure I like that, I'm
not sure it's a good idea," he


commented.
He saw the need for bet-
ter education about end-of-
life issues, with 70 percent
of health-care expenditures
now occurring in connection
with the last year of life.
"We do need tort reform," he
added.
Hall also called for uni-
versal patient records in the
interest of improving pa-
tient care. ,
In response to a ques-
tion, Hall explained that
federal regulations 'limit
salaries that can be offered
when physicians are being
recruited, making recruit-
ment more difficult.
He was asked if a "simple
clinic" would be possible in
connection with the hospi-
tal, based on low patient
fees and not relying on any
type of insurance.
"You read my mind," Hall
responded. He was of the
opinion that this and other
initiatives that would make
sense for the area would
be possible through people
coming together and work-
ing toward them as a com-
munity.
WRWF President Char-
lotte Flynt commented that
club members are writing a
bill to propose to the state
on campaign reform. "We'd
love to jump in on health
care," she said. offering Hall
assistance in that area.
Local Republican candi-
dates were congratulated
on their victories in the gen-
eral election. Flynt was also
happy to report that some of
the local party candidates
who had lost out in the pri-
maries had indicated that
they intended to stay ac-
tive in politics in the future.
She announced that as an
upcoming project, the club
would be participating in a
campaign school for candi-
dates, a three-day event to
take place in Walton Coun-
ty. Additional information
on the event will be forth-
coming.







THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2010



Tales of Airn coming to NWFSC


A cast of 18 Northwest
Florida State College (NWF-
SC) theater scholarship stu-
dents from across the region
are in rehearsals for a Pro-
scenium Playhouse produc-
tion of an original fantasy
Tales of Airn to be present-
ed on the mainstage of the
Mattie Kelly Arts Center in
Niceville on Dec. 2 and 3 at
7:30 p.m. There will also be
a special matinee on Dec. 3
at 10 a.m. for school groups
and home school students.
Tickets are just $6 each for
adults and youth and are
available now from the Mat-
tie Kelly Arts Center Box of-
fice at 729-6000 or online at
www.mattiekellyartscenter.
org. School groups should
call 729-6065.
The heartwarming fanta-
sy for the kid in all of us is a
must-see event for families,
children and adults ages
8 and up. Inspired by the
performance styles of such
groups as Cirque du Soleil,
Tales of Airn is told through
exceptional dance, music
and narration. Covering the
themes of love for family,
loyalty, perseverance in the
face of adversity, friendship,
and brains over violence -
the show uses unique aer-
ial acts, acrobatics, dance,
puppetry, dramatic light-
ing, original set design and
custom costumes to create a
unique world of fantasy.
The exciting original sto-
ry follows a young princess
and her adventure to save
her family and her king-
dom from the hand of her
evil uncle and is an adapta-
tion of a short story written
by Niceville author James
Clinton, also known as Clint
Mahle, NWFSC theater fac-
ulty member. Mahle made
the donation to the college's
theater program to under-
write the student scholar-
ships and support for the
play.
Mahle says it's has been
a labor of love and is most
thrilled by the ability to
collaborate with other art-
ists, such as local Joe Tay-
lor, NWFSC dance faculty.
"It's so exciting to be work-
ing with this unbelievable
talented group of students
and teachers. Joe Taylor
has been an inspiration and
has brought so much to this
story. I love when someone
comes up to me and pres-.
ents me with ideas that I
would never have thought of
in a million years. This pro-
duction has been a great ex-
ample of how great creative
process can be when every-
one contributes as they have
on this project. Joe Taylor's
contribution to this project
has been huge."
"This is such a unique op-
portunity for our students,
to participate in the experi-
ence of bringing an original
theatrical work from page to
the stage and the fact that
the faculty member him-
self made the donation so
that the students can have
this learning opportunity -
makes it extra special," said
Dr. Cliff Herron, Dean of the
college's Humanities, Fine
and Performing Arts Divi-
sion. He noted that Mahle
is available to speak to lo-
cal schools and other groups
about language arts, writ-
ing the play and producing
theatrical works.
Speaking with those stu-
dents has also been a high-
light for Mahle. He spoke to
over 200 last week and their
enthusiasm for the story


was palatable, "They loved
it," Mahle exclaimed. "You
never know what people
will think about your work.
You sit in a room alone and
try not to let worries about
your story or where it is go-
ing imped the creative pro-
cess. Then when you stick
your neck out there with
your work, you never know
if anyone is going to like
it. The response from the
classes last week were over
the top with enthusiasm,
and I'm thrilled. I designed
this for school kids and even
wrote up a Sunshine Stan-
dard guide to go with it for
teachers. Getting to get out
and meet those kids, talk to
them about the importance
of language arts and get
feedback from them after
reading the story to them
in person has been incred-
ible and has been worth ev-
ery minute of the work that
went into this story and pro-
duction."
Mahle noted that a goal
of the donation was to pro-
vide seed money so that
the funds from each year's
Proscenium Playhouse pro-
duction will be used to fund
similar theatrical scholar-
ship opportunities in sub-
sequent years. "This year
we needed to get the prosce-
nium playhouse experience
for students and local audi-
ences off the ground, but we
hope that audience support
through attending the play
will enable similar events to
continue for years to come,"
he said.
The work also comes from
a place of faith for Mahle.
"I've never really stuck my
neck out personally, took
such risk, personally, for an
artistic endeavor, but I have
felt that God was there with
me, guiding me from the
start. I just prayed that he
would do what he wanted
with this project and would
guide it to where it was sup-
posed to go and the way ev-
erything has fell into place,
I know it's been in his hands
from the very start."
The response from those
who have read the short sto-
ry and the enthusiasm dis-
played by them has caused
Mahle to reach even further.
"Tales ofAirn will be fleshed
out into a full length novel
and meeting with publish-
ers will be the next step."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25,2010


After you have put
down the fork and
unbuttoned the first
button on your pants,
there is just enough
time to get some rest
before the big day on
Friday. I'm not
referring to the biggest
shopping day, but all
the holiday events that
get kicked off on Nov.
26.
---------------------------------------
Many think that the day
after Thanksgiving and
being with family
throughout the day, it is
time to grab the
newspapers, and start
thumbing through sale
papers announcing all the
big after-Thanksgiving
sales. But for many, the
day after Thanksgiving is
the day that trees get
decorated, you pull Frosty
and the nativity scene from
the shed, and for
thousands, a chance to see
all the Christmas
excitement that many have
been working on for
months, just to unveil the
day after Thanksgiving.
Across the Emerald
Coast, trees are ready to be
lit, snow is ready to fall,
Santa is making his way by
surfboard, this is Florida,
and all the holiday
decorations have adorned
buildings, streetlights,
windows and the entrances,
of hundreds of
neighborhood, communities
and properties. Once again,
despite a floundering
economy, the holiday tree
lightings around the area
have spared no expense to
brighten up the holiday
season.
In Rosemary Beach, the
activities get kicked off
Nov. 26, at 5:30 p.m., with
the 50-foot fir tree being lit
and then more than 40 oak
trees around North and
South Barrett Squares will
be turned on while snow

falls and Santa arrives. The
activities continue the
following day with the
Holiday Market, Breakfast
with Santa, the tour of
homes and the merchant
open houses.
This year's market will
have more than 60 vendors
in the media of holiday gifts
and decorations, pottery,
fine art, ceramics, yard art,
hand-crafted jewelry and
furniture, and much more.
This holiday favorite has
received international
recognition and this year,
the largest amount of
Holiday Markets will be
exhibiting and selling.
Once again, Breakfast
with Santa will host
hundreds of children as
they get a chance to tell
Santa what they want him
to bring them.
All activities are free
and open to the public,
except for Breakfast with
Santa. For more
information, and ticket
information about the
Breakfast with Santa
event, call Rosemary Beach
at 231-7388, or Hilltop
Productions at 951-2148.
In DeFuniak Springs,
the lights around Lake
DeFuniak get turned on for
another season of tourists,
as they make their way
around the lake and are
dazzled by hundreds of
thousands of lights. On
Nov. 27, Hometown
Christmas will take over
the Walton County
Fairgrounds in DeFuniak
Springs, from 9 a.m. 5
p.m.
There will be vendors


Art -lips

with a variety of holiday
gifts and decorations,
entertainment throughout
the day, and the event goes
on rain, or shine. For more
information, call the DBPA
at 892-3850.
In Seaside, the holiday
magic continues as Santa
returns and the town is
turned on for another
season. Activities get
kicked-off at 4 p.m. in
Seagrove Beach and
proceeds west to the town
of Seaside. Once Santa
arrives on the back of the
vintage fire truck, it's party
time in the amphitheater
with holiday festivities.
Mrs. Claus will take the
part of master of
ceremonies, as she has the
crowd join- in and do the
official countdown for
turning on the town. All
activities are free and open
to the public.
For more information,
call the Merchants of
Seaside at 231-5424.
Bring in the holidays at
Baytowne! Join hundreds
as they celebrate the
Holiday Weekend-
complete with a Christmas
Parade, Tree Lighting, and
of course, Santa Claus!
Sandestin homeowners
help kick off the evening of
November 26, with a
lighted, golf cart Christmas
Parade as they Welcome
Santa to Baytowne and
cheer him on as he lights
the Village Christmas Tree.
Following the parade,
the choreographed light
show, 12 Nights of Lights,
and fireworks will light up
the sky over the lagoon. All


I


events are free and open to
the public.
For more information,
call Baytowne Wharf at
267-8000.
If you feel like venturing
out of Walton County, then
Panama City has what you
are looking for to get the
entire family into the spirit
of Christmas.
Join Panama City Beach
in celebrating an age old
tradition as the Panama
City Beach Mayor lights
the .20 foot Christmas tree
in the middle of Pier Park
Shopping Center on Nov.
26. Holiday carolers will
also perform to help ring in
the holiday season with
activities beginning at 5:15
p.m.
On Nov. 27, the 24th
Annual Boat Parade of
Lights comes to St.
Andrews and Panama City.
Thousands of spectators
gather every year to
celebrate Christmas with
the beautiful site of lighted
boats on the water. Boats
light up St. Andrews Bay
starting at 5:30 p.m. off St.
Andrews Bay Yacht Club.
The boats pass by
Panama City Marina
(arriving about 5:40 p.m.),
then travel to St. Andrews
Marina (first boats arriving
about 6:15 p.m.) where the
parade ends. Free parking
and viewing at both
marinas. The theme for the
2010 parade is "A Team
Spirit Christmas."

To help get your holiday
season kicked into high
gear, hit the malls early,
but make sure you check
out the numerous
Christmas celebrations and
events, going on throughout
the weekend. With all the
activities taking place,
what a great way to
celebrate the holidays, and
who knows, might even
give you a chance to walk
off some of those calories
and pounds from
Thanksgiving dinner!

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT


The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its intent to is-
sue an environmental resources individual
stormwater permit for Dead River Park Im-
provements, 66-0300257-002-SI, to Ryan
Douglass, Engineer, Walton County Public
Works, 117 Montgomery Circle, Defuniak
Springs, Florida.

The purpose of the permit is to con-
struct a new entrance drive, eight RV pads
with connecting driveways, a nature trail,
timber retaining wall, shoreline stabiliza-
tion, pier, floating dock, and boat ramp
improvements on 1.64 acres. Stormwater
treatment will be provided by a detention
pond with a side-bank filter. A portion of
the site development contains jurisdic-
tional wetlands, for which a separate wet-
land resource management permit will be
required.

Proper erosion control measures will
be employed during construction.

The project will be located at the East
End of Dead River Road, Walton County.

Based on all the above, and with the
application of general and limiting specific
conditions of the permit, the Department
has reasonable assurance the project, as
proposed, fully meets the environmental
resources stormwater treatment require-
ments of Chapter 62-346, Florida Admin-
istrative Code, and will not harm the envi-
ronment.

A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's action
may petition for an administrative, pro-
ceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statute. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received by
the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000..

Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to re-determine final
agency action on the application, the filing
of a petition for an administrative hearing
may result in a modification of the permit,
or even a denial of the application. Ac-
cordingly, the applicant will not commence
construction or other activities under this
permit until the deadlines below for filing
a petition for an administrative hearing, or
request for an extension of time, have ex-
pired.

Under subsection 62-110.106(4) of
the Florida Administrative Code, a person
whose substantial interests are affected
by the Department's action may also re-
quest an extension of time to file a peti-
tion for an administrative hearing. The
Department may, for good cause shown,
grant the request for an extension of time.
Requests for extension of time must be
filed with the Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable
deadline. Atimely request for extension of
time shall toll the running time period for
filing a petition until the request is acted
upon. If a request is filed late, the Depart-
ment may still grant it upon a motion by the
requesting party showing that the failure to
file a request for an extension of time be-
fore the deadline was the result of excus-
able neglect.

In the event that a timely and sufficient
.petition for an administrative hearing is
filed, other persons whose substantial in-
terests will be affected by the outcome of
the administrative process have the right
to petition to intervene in the proceeding.
Intervention will be only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a mo-
tion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of
the Florida Administrative Code.

In accordance with subsection
28-106.111(2) and subparagraph 62-
110.106(3)(a).4, Florida Administrative
Code, petitions for an administrative hear-
ing by the applicant must be filed within
21 days of receipt of written notice. Peti-
tions filed by any persons other than the
applicant, and other than those entitled to
written notice under Section 120.60(3) of


PAGE 9-C
the Florida Statutes, must be filed within
21 days of publication of the notice.

Under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statute, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 21 days of
such notice, regardless of the date of pub-
lication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition for an
administrative hearing within the appropri-
ate time period shall constitute a waiver of
those rights.

A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following informa-
tion:

(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name, ad-
dress, and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes dur-
ing the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are or will be affected by
the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the
petitioner received notice of the agency
decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, including the specific"
facts that the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the agency's
proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes that the petitioner contends re-
quire reversal or modification of the agen-
cy's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought
by the petitioner, stating precisely the ac-
tion that the petitioner wishes the agency
to take with respect to the agency's pro-
posed action.

A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the Department's
action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set forth
above, as required by Rule 28-106.301,
Florida Administrative Code. Under Sec-
tions 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of the Florida
Statute, a petition for administrative hear-
ing must be dismissed by the agency if
the petition does not substantially comply
with the above requirements or is untimely
filed.

This action is final and effective on the
date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a petition is filed in accordance
with the above. Upon the timely filing of
petition this order will not be effective until
further order of the Department.

This permit, when issued, constitutes
an order of the Department. The applicant
has the right to seek judicial review of the
order under Section 120.68 of the Florida
Statute, by the filing of a notice of appeal
under Rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of
Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the
Department in the Office of General Coun-
sel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-
3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of
the appeal accompanied by the applicable
filing fees with the appropriate district
court of appeal. The notice of appeal must
be filed within 30 days from the date when
the final order is filed with the Clerk of the
Department.

The application for this permit is avail-
able for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, except for legal
holidays, at the Northwest District, 160
