Superintendent and principal



speak on school grades


By ASHLEYAMASON
High school grades were
released by the Florida De-
partment of Education since
using its new formula for the
first time. The new formula
to calculate a school's grade
no longer relies on Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) scores alone,
but is a combination of 50
percent FCAT scores and 50
percent graduation rates,
student participation (in-
cluding 50 percent annual
learning gains in the low-


est performing 25 percent
of students), and other test
scores such as AP, SAT, and
ACT.
For the past five years,
the Walton County School
District has earned an over-
all grade of A, one of only a
handful of districts in the
state to do so.
This year, Paxton School
earned an A, as did South
Walton High School. Free-
port High School scored a C,
and'Walton High School fell
from a B to a D.
Superintendent Carlene


Anderson addressed the low-
scoring grades of FHS and
WHS, stating, "We are work-
ing with WHS and FHS...
when a grade is reduced by
a whole letter grade it im-
plies it's the whole [school]
body's grade but that is not
true." Anderson went on to
explain the significant drop
in letter grade is the result
of the lowest 25 percent of
students not making 50 per-
cent annual learning gains.
WHS Principal Russell
Hughes addressed the drop
in his school's grade. "This


year we are numerically
categorized as a C, literally
one point from a B, but due
to the [lowest 25 percent not
making 50 percent annual
learning gains] the state pe-
nalized us one letter grade,"
he said. Hughes, who has
raised WHS' grade by one
letter each year in his two
years, continued, "It is cer-
tainly disheartening to give
the time and work I put in
personally and likewise for
our students, faculty, and
staff. I know many times the
community can only see the


end result of the grade and
it's hard for them to concep-
tualize one point from a B,
yet ending up a D. Of course,
not to mention all the other
immeasurable accomplish-
ments, like the total culture,
discipline, increase in dual
enrollment classes on cam-
pus, the start of three new
career academies, and the
overall atmosphere of WHS.


Nonetheless, it is what it is
and professionally this is
the lowest grade I have ever
received as an instructional
leader, and I can assure our
community, students, facul-
ty and staff this will not be
the case whenever the next
grade comes out."

THE WALTON

COUNTY

SHERIFF'S OFFICE

would like to remind all
residents to celebrate
responsibly


In addition to alcohol-related accidents, cell phones, GPS
devices, and speeding or hurried drivers can put other
motorists at great risk.

How Does Alcohol Affect Drivers?

Judgment is the first capacity affected by alcohol. People
who've been drinking frequently believe that they're less
affected than they are.
Coordination, vision, and motor skills are drastically impaired
by alcohol consumption.
Being fatigued, stressed, under the weather, or using any
medicine can dramatically increase alcohol's effect, making -
one harmless little drink lethally intoxicating to someone
behind the wheel.

How Much Is Too Much?

The only completely safe alcohol consumption level before
driving is ZERO.
If you or anyone else is concerned about your sobriety, don't
drive. Get a ride or stay where you are (spend the night if
necessary) until you are sure you're able to drive safely.

When Should I Contact Law Enforcement?

If you see vehicles weaving or swerving in and out of their
lane, braking erratically, or driving aggressively, you are
encouraged to contact the Walton County Sheriff's Office at
(850) 892-8111.

The Walton County Sheriff's Office
would like to wish all
Walton County citizens and visitors
a very safe and Merry Christmas!

Paxton SWAT shares holiday


Freeport welcomes refund cookies and tobacco facts


By BEN GRAFTON
At the last regularly
scheduled Freeport Coun-
cil meeting of the year on
Dec. 14, Tom Conley of the
League of Cities was in at-
tendance and presented the
city with an insurance re-
fund check in the amount of
$19,200. He explained that
the city's storm insurance
is provided by the League of
Cities and since there have
been no storms in the past
four years, the refund is pos-
sible.
City Planner Latilda
Henninger reviewed activ-
ity underway in pursuit of
grants to improve the Sports
Complex at Hammock Bay.
She said the city had scored
well on the application for
a FRDAP grant. Results of
this application will be an-
nounced in January. In ad-
dition, she is looking into
available grants offered-4by:
the National Park Service.
There has been some talk
about extending the fish-
ing pier at Four Mile Creek
Park. Grant applications for
this proposal would be very
complicated and would have
to include an environmental
survey.
Henninger said Walton
County used resolutions to
establish budgeting for park
funding. These resolutions
contain wording that if no
grant funding can be se-
cured, then the county will
not fund the budgeted proj-
ect. She recommended that
Freeport follow the same
approach and the Council
approved this proposal.
City Attorney Clayton Ad-
kinson presented the second
reading of an annexation or-
dinance to bring property on


Bay Loop road into the city.
The Council adopted the or-
dinance.
Parks Director Shane
Supple reported that the
park basketball program
is underway and that 64
youngsters have signed up
to participate.
Supple also reported that
the security camera instal-
lation at the Sports Complex
has been delayed since the
supplier has the equipment
on back order.
Angie Jay of Preble-Rish
reported that the North Bay
water main extension proj-
ect is at a standstill because
funding from Rural Devel-
opment has not yet been
approved. As a result the re-
quest for bids on the project
will be delayed until Janu-
ary.
The Florida Department
of Transportation office has
.:' oa.~fedJtheit'y -and" sched-
uled a meeting after the first
of the year to discuss issues
related to widening portions
of U.S. 331 to four lanes in
2012. Specific subjects and
plans to be discussed are not
known at this time.
Mayor Mickey Marse
opened a discussion about
Council member participa-
tion in the Florida state re-
tirement plan. Councilman
Harold Taunton moved that
the city start participation in
the plan for its Council mem-
bers. Taunton noted that for
those,who qualify by means


of long term service with the
Council, the city could buy
into the plan for up to five
preceding years. The cost to
the city would be $29,600 to
cover the buy-in, and there-
after the annual cost of the
retirement benefit would
be $7,700. Elected officials
from other local government
bodies participate in the
plan. Councilman Earl King
noted that the retirement
program was a good thing,
but he stated that that he
didn't get on the Council for
the retirement benefit. The
Council approved the mo-
tion to join the plan. First
payments to the plan will be
made in January.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
opened a discussion of the
proposed business registra-
tion fee. The city would re-
quire all businesses to regis-
ter, providing a description
of the business .and the
number of people employed
however, it would not ask
for wage or earnings data. A
straight fee of $25 per year
would be charged. The data
collected would be used in
filing grant applications, for
providing data needed for
the maintenance of the En-
terprise Zone status, to in
provide answers to inquiries
about employment opportu-
nities and provide data re-
lated to public safety. The
proposed registration fee
was unanimously approved
by the Council.


The Paxton SWAT (Stu-
dents Working Against
Tobacco) chapter decided
to combine their desire to
spread the word that Pax-
ton has its very own SWAT
and that all forms of tobac-
co are unhealthy with the
crowd attending the Paxton
School's Dec. 17 basketball
game. Before the game be-
tween the Paxton Bobcats
and the Laurel Hill Hoboes,
SWAT members and their
advisor Laurie Gilbert gave
out homemade Christmas
cookies with SWAT labels.
As the SWAT members
handed out these Christ-
mas treats, they also shared
important facts about the
deadly chemicals in ciga-
rettes and about how impor-
tant it is for a young person
to live a tobacco free life.

The Sweet



Buy and



Buy

By BRUCE COLLIER

You don't have to love advertising people, but they can
display admirable cunning. I don't make a study of of com-
mercials, but this season I have noticed the relative absence
of those "buy this or you're in trouble with (insert
name of spouse, child, or significant other)" calculated to
induce guilt and panic in otherwise mature people. "First
terrify, then offer a way out" has long been a sound basis
for marketing everything from toys to heroin. Why not this
year?
Well, probably because it's not likely to work. Those with
stuff to sell have been forced to acknowledge the sluggish-
ness of the economy. Those with the least justifiable stuff
to sell (a.k.a. crap no one really needs) have really got their
work cut out for them. For the economy's sake, I guess I
have to wish them success, but my heart's not in it. For
example, Americans have communications and entertain-
ment technology at their fingertips that would astound
Jules Verne at his Jules Verniest. Still, if it's come to the
point where our cars can tell us where to get a pizza (saw
that this very morning on TV), I think we can step back
and rest on our laurels. They still can't do that in China. Of
course, they may not feel the need to, but that's a different
story.
Some places are trying the higher road, giving buyers
permission to spend less, spend smart, let the love show
through the modest price tag. That's gotta be a tough job
for, say, Mercedes Benz, but Wal-Mart or the Mom & Pop
store down the street (assuming Wal-Mart didn't edge them
out) might find it useful.
My favorite approach this season is the "less can be
classy" argument. It works by flattery, always a potent
drug. Sure, you're spending less money, but you put a lot of
thought into this, wrapped it beautifully, etc., and it leaves
just enough residual guilt that you may come back later
and spend more at the last minute. Or on Valentine's Day,
or Sweetest Day, or Just-Shut-Up-and-Buy-Something
Day. It's a long-term strategy, requiring gambler's nerves.
Retailers may have to suck it up this season and hope
for better times, which will come. If they are smart, they
will make the best of this New Austerity and tell people
it's OK for them to spend less this year. Or is this akin to
the New Fidelity that swept the country when AIDS and
herpes were on everyone's mind back in the '90s? No more
promiscuity, we said, let's show some restraint and class...
until that wore thin and we persuaded ourselves that we
were in no real danger. Then it was back to business as
usual. Goodness, as Mae West once observed, had nothing'
to do with it.
If tight money has any upside at all, it can teach people
what is really valuable, far more than any market-driven
slogan ever coined. If it teaches people to stop spending
money they don't have on stuff so useless that they have to
be indoctrinated into wanting it, it may be an expensive but
worthy lesson.

Miracle..
I am sure you have watched Miracle on 34th Street, but
I bet you haven't seen the Miracle on 622 Bayshore Drive,
Niceville. Tonight was the annual Children's Advocacy
Center Christmas party at 662 Bayshore. It is my favorite
day of the year and the most amazing. You see, these child
victims of abuse often lose their childhoods. One of the most
important things the Center does is help restore them. And
what better way than giving a child Christmas full of new
memories.
So many people made these memories possible. Thank
you to the Center staff and volunteers. Thank you to Heri-
tage Cycles and the Emerald Coast Hog Chapter for pro-
viding the endless toys. Thank you to Callie and Hannah

last about two hours, starting at 2:15 p.m. shortly after
conclusion of the 11 a.m. swearing-in ceremonies.
In addition to the three state Cabinet officers and justices
of the Supreme Court, parade participants will include the
Florida A&M and Florida State University marching bands,
bands and color guards from the Florida National Guard,

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY DECEMBER 23, 2010


Editor:
Well, they've done it again. The Lame Duck liberal Demo-
crats are realizing January is almost here and they will
lose power in the house. They never give up when it comes
to backroom and late night deals and they especially love
jamming them through around special holidays, or week-
ends, so it will be a surprise to us taxpayers when we fi-
nally wake up and realize, my God they have done it again.
Last December it was the "dream on" Obamacare which
was later realized by the American citizens as "one big lie."
We've discovered the over 2,000 pages wasn't really about
Healthcare at all, but government takeover. This Decem-
ber it is the "omnibus bill, dream act, and Don't Ask, Don't
Tell."
Thank God they haven't succeeded in passing the "dream
act" bill which would allow all illegal Mexicans amnesty up
to 36 years-old. Then there's the "bigger than life" omni-
bus bill that would send us into a deeper recession then
we're already in. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid scrambled
around to force this environmental bill through Congress.
This legislation, consisting of more than 100 bills on land
use, energy and water regulation, will cost taxpayers dear-
ly by putting more burdens on small businesses and in-


creasing national debt. Pelosi and Reid know it will further
cripple our economy, but they don't care! Don't Ask, Don't
Tell has been passed by the House and goes to the Senate to
be voted on, which the president will soon be signing, which
will take millions of dollars to fund.
I have written to each of our senators asking that they
vote on defunding the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and
to refuse to fund the repeal. It's up to our new Congress
to decide whether this is what the American people re-
ally want. They can take major steps in stopping this new
policy if they choose to. I believe that allowing homosexu-
als to serve openly in the military will hurt the morale of
our troops and threaten their safety. It would also endan-
ger the religious liberty rights of chaplains and servicemen
who believe that homosexuality is immoral.
For those who are as unhappy with this bill as I am, please
follow suit and write, or call Senator George S. LeMieux,
and Senator Bill Nelson. We don't need to'just stand by and
let this happen to our great military.
God Bless America
God Bless Our Troops

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2010

District 4 Sen. Don

Gaetz says Biophilia

Center represents

"the real Florida"


By REID TUCKER
Florida State Sen. Don
Gaetz received an award
from the staff of the E.O.
Wilson Biophilia Center in
recognition of his support
for educational programs in
northwest Florida.
Gaetz, whose senatorial
district includes 173 miles
of the coastal Panhandle
from Perdido Key, on the
Alabama border, to Mexico
Beach, on the line between
Gulf' and Bay counties,
toured the Biophilia Center
on Wednesday, Dec. 15. Lo-
cated east of Freeport, the
Nokuse Plantation-based
environmental education fa-
cility provides students from
five counties with hands-on
learning experiences geared
toward helping them ap-
preciate biodiversity and
conservation. During his
visit, Gaetz toured the main
exhibit hall, observed Bio-
philia Center educators in
outdoor and indoor labs and
conversed with students be-
fore receiving his plaque.
The senator, who served
four terms as Okaloosa
County Superintendent of
Schools before running for
the Florida Legislature in
2006, was impressed with
what he saw at the Bio-
philia Center in terms of the
opportunities it represents
for the state's public educa-
tion system and as a natural
preserve. He heaped espe-
cial praise on the efforts of
Walton County conserva-
tionist and business M.C.
Davis, who founded Nokuse
Plantation as well as the
Biophilia Center.
"This is real world sci-
ence," Gaetz said. "This is
natural science in its natu-
ral state. What Mr. Davis
has done here is certainly
a treasure for the state of
Florida, but I believe it's a
national treasure. An hour
or a day here is worth a
week or a month in a class-
room."
The environmental edu-
cation facility has been vis-
ited by more than 10,000
fourth and seventh grade
students from Walton, Bay,
Okaloosa, Holmes and Leon
counties since opening in
September of 2009 and reg-
ularly hosts an average of
140 students per school day.
The Walton County School
District considers the center
an extension of the county's
classrooms as a science edu-
cation project-based learn-
ing facility. By offering
curriculum that matches
next-generation Sunshine
State Standards, students
who attend Biophilia Center
classes will hopefully have a
better grasp on the concepts
of the science portion of the
Florida Comprehensive As-
sessment Test, said Biophil-
ia Center Director Christina
Scally.
"We want students to
be able to implement what
they learn here later in life,"


Scally said. "Rather than
studying [about local biodi-
versity] in a classroom, they
get to do a lot of hands-on
learning. We're doing all
we can to meet the schools'
need to bolster low science
scores."
Since all on-site learn-
ing services at the facility
are provided free of charge
to participating school dis-
tricts, it's important for the
Biophilia Center to have
the support of politicians
like Gae'tz, Scally said. For
example, working relation-
ships with local legislators
is critical if the center is
to make the most of state
funding and grant opportu-
nities. Furthermore, Scally
said having students re-
main engaged in dialog with
lawmakers enables younger
citizens to have their voices
heard in government.
Gaetz agreed with Scal-
ly's assessment of the im-
portance of the relationship
between young people and
their representatives, add-
ing that his own interest
in the unique educational
environment afforded by
the Biophilia Center tran-
scendshis senatorial district
boundaries. He said pre-
serving natural resources
like Nokuse Plantation and
the Biophilia Center are key
to keeping Florida's science
education relevant well into

the future.
"This is important to me
because I represent north-
west Florida," Gaetz said. "I
don't just represent where
the squiggly district line
goes. I feel this is the real
Florida. Thank goodness


young people are getting an
opportunity to see this, not
like a tourist, but to actually
get to touch it and feel it."

New protective gear for


Walton Fire Rescue


Walton County Fire Res-
cue has recently taken de-
livery of new firefighting
clothing or "bunker gear"
for all personnel. The cloth-
ing was purchased through


a Federal Emergency Man-
agement Act (FEMA) grant.
The total award pack-
age for the FEMA grant
was $294,485. Sunbelt Fire
Equipment was awarded


the competitive bid and has
delivered 135 sets of gear
which is sufficient to outfit
all of the paid, part-time
and volunteer firefighters of
Walton County Fire Rescue.
Firefighter David Jones
was responsible for the writ-
ing of the grant application
with assistance from Wal-
ton County Grants Coordi-
nator Angle Biddle. Battal-
ion Chief Bill May has been


responsible for the sizing,
ordering and distribution of
the gear as well as purchas-
ing washers and dryers for
the care and longevity of the
equipment.
According to Fire Chief
Brian Coley, "The new fire-
fighting clothing will help
keep our firefighters safe as
they continue to serve the
public."

Special submission by
KEN LITTLE
Have you noticed a new
sound in DeFuniak Springs?
The First National Bank
clock at the corner of Bald-
win Avenue and 7th Street is
now back in operation. The
clock which has great senti-
mental value to many resi-
dents of DeFuniak Springs
was restored to service at
2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 19,
2010 after many years of in-
activity and deterioration.
Restoration of the clock
was a two-year long project
begun by the Walton Coun-
ty Heritage Association.
Conceived by local heritage
enthusiast Dennis Ray, a
search was started for some
way to restore the clock. An-
ticipating a huge expense in
this, Heritage Association
member Terry Dawkins had
a great idea for a Take Stock
in the Clock fundraiser.
Stock certificates were "sold"
to subscribers with a differ-
ent twist the clock .would
be restored and operating
by Dec. 31, 2010, or the sub-
scriber would be refunded
their money. A total of 34 in-
dividuals, couples, and orga-
nizations contributed a total
of $3,715 to this campaign.
Among the groups contrib-
uting to the Take Stock in
the Clock campaign was
the White Sands Chapter of
the National Association of
Watch and Clock Collectors
in Pensacola, some of whose
members are also mem-'
bers of the Walton County
Heritage Association. Jim
Gramlich of Pensacola, an
active member of the Watch
and Clock Collectors group,
offered to restore the. clock
as a personal project. Mr.
Gramlich had successfully
restored a number of an-
tique and unique clocks,
and was intrigued that the
DeFuniak Springs clock still
had all the original clock
mechanism intact. His gen-
erous offer to restore the
clock at no cost was a god-
send as the lowest bid from
clock restoration firms was
around $8,000.
The project received en-
thusiastic support from the
city of DeFuniak Springs
and the Walton County
Commissioners. Ownership
of the clock is mixed. The
clock was placed in service
by the First National Bank
of DeFuniak Springs in 1924.
Following the purchase
of First National Bank by
Century Bank, then by Sun
Bank in the 1970's, the clock
was abandoned when Sun
Bank moved to a new loca-
tion away from downtown.
The bank building was pur-
chased by the county for of-
fice space and records stor-
age. The Office of the Public
Defender now occupies the
front part of the building.
The tower clock is consid-
ered to be owned by the city
of DeFuniak Springs as it
sits on city right-of-way.


Many are surprised to
learn that the clock in front
of the bank building the
part that most people, see
- is only a repeater of a
master clock located inside
the building. The master
clock is a large wooden cabi-
net resembling a grandfa-'
ther clock. It. houses the
clock mechanism and the
chime wheel that operates
the chimes on the outside
clock. For this reason, sup-
port of both the city and the
county was crucial to the
project to restore the clock.
Work began in early
2009. The master clock was
delivered to Mr. Gramlich
for restoration in June, and
county and city crews be-
gan dismantling the outside
clock. A plan was designed
to relocate the outside clock
from the curb to a safer lo-
cation in front of the bank
building. This required re-
moval of a tree and replace-
ment of sidewalk to accom-
modate the movement of the
clock. Under the direction of
City Public Works Director
Bill Holloway and Building
Official Ed Joyner, the city
crew removed the tree and
refurbished the sidewalk
where the clock had stood
since 1924, and poured a
new sidewalk in front of the
building with conduit un-
derneath for the wiring to
the new location. City work-
ers who participated in this
effort were Cyle Dickey, Ron
Dickey, Nathan Fountain,
Daren Donaldson, Rich-
ard Goodwin, and Dennis
Gavin. The relocation also
made possible a plan to al-

With the support of the
County Commissioners,
David Chandler and Travis
Wilkerson and crews from
the county's construction
management department
carefully disassembled the


outside clock. The electrical
parts that operate the clock
arms and the chime mecha-
nism were delivered to Jim
Gramlich in Pensacola; and
the body of the outside clock,
mostly of hand-crafted cop-
per and stained glass pan-
els, was safely stored in the

JUST IN TIME for Christmas, the First National Bank

final touches left. The clock reminds everyone of DeFuniak's
heritage as it chimes anew.

December, the reassembly
began in earnest. The mas-
ter clock was ready to go,
and David Chandler, a tal-
ented electrician and sheet
metal worker began repair
of the outside clock body at
his home workshop. Many of
the copper panels and joints-
had cracked from age and
required resoldering. The
stained glass clock faces and
bottom panels were carefully
cleaned. Working mostly on
weekends, Mr. Chandler be-
gan reassembly of the clock
body on the outside clock,
and with the help of John
Brazie from the county's
wood shop, pulled the 15 ca-
bles required to connect the
master clock and the outside
clock through the conduit.
Mr. Brazie also fabricated
the display wall inside the
bank building where the
master clock is mounted.
On Sunday, Dec. 19, Mr.
Gramlich and his son Mi-
chael traveled from Pensa-
cola to complete the wiring
and connection of the two
clocks. Working from scaf-
folding around the clock,
each of the connections
were tediously crimped
and soldered for durability
and long service. Together
with David Chandler, they
completed the installation,
tested the connections, and
set the outside clock dials to
the same time. At 2 p.m. the
master clock was activated
and the pendulum began
to swing. For the first time
in many years, the clock
chimes rang out with the
Westminster chime theme
that was so familiar to many
long time DeFuniak Springs
residents.
Mayor Harold Carpenter
who has lent consistently
strong support and interest
to this project was on hand
at the time the clock was
started. Also present at the
start up of the clock were
Terry Dawkins, member of
the Heritage Association
Board of Directors and local
Gulf Power manager, Da-
vid Chandler's sister Karen
Cummins, and Art and Mar-
ty Dees, owners of WZEP
radio. Many other residents


had stopped by to observe
and offer encouragement
while work was in progress
during the day.
Congratulating Mr.
Gramlich and his son, and
Mr. Chandler on a job well
done, Mayor Carpenter
observed "this has been a
great partnership between
the city, the county, the
Heritage Association, and
the Pensacola clock collec-
tors group."
On target, Mr. Mayor!
This project could not have
been completed without the
participation of the many
people who believed in it
and made it possible -- from
the initial idea and dream
of restoring the clock; the fi-
nancial investment of many
people in Take Stock in the
Clock and the coordination


by the Heritage Association;
the public support of the
city and the county which
included allowing in-kind
work and use of public facili-
ties and equipment; the tal-
ent and skills of many city
and county craftsmen and
workers; and the most gen-
erous dedication of time and
talent by Mr. Gramlich in
restoring the clock mecha-
nism at no cost. Notably, no
direct taxpayer dollars were
expended on this project
apart from improvements to
city or county facilities that
were incidental to needed
maintenance. Hopefully the
results of this project will
be enjoyed by residents and
visitors for many years to
come. Merry Christmas De-
Funiak Springs and Walton
County!


JOHN BRAZIE works on framing the room inside the
Public Defenders Office where the clock mechanicism will be
displayed.

NOTICE OF A FINDING OF
NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application for financial assistance
from the City of Freeport. The proposed project consists of the new construction of
approximately 73,000 linear feet of water mains in the water system's franchise area.
All distribution lines will be located within state and county road rights-of-way and
designated easements.

The following mitigation measures will be implemented:
Project plans and specifications will be submitted to the FL Department of
Environmental Protection and other required regulatory agencies to insure that
construction meets all current regulatory standards and 'all required permits are
issued;
The City of Freeport will scrutinize all service connection applications where
wetlands exist to verify that all potential users have obtained proper USACE
Section 404 Permits;
Best Management Practices will be utilized in order to prevent storm water runoff
and erosion along the project route during construction, including but are not
limited to minimize soil disturbance and the installation of storm water controls
such as hay bales and silt fencing and grassing stabilizing construction site
entrances using FDOT-approved stone and geotextile;
Best Management Practices will be utilized to maintain air quality and lessen
emissions, including spraying the construction area with water, replacing or
repairing the ground cover and limiting vehicle equipment idling time where
practical;
Best Management Practices will be utilized to lessen impacts to biological resources,
including the use of directional boring near confirmed flatwoods salamander
habitat. This is not necessary in the Basin Bayou or Trout Brach areas of the
project. If threatened or endangered species such as gopher tortoise or black
bear is sited, construction personnel will cease all activities, allowing the animal
sufficient time to move away from the site;
In order to mitigate any impact the proposed project may have on historical site
8WL2445, the pipeline will be placed between the north edge of the existing road
and the south edge of the drainage ditch so that significant portions on the site
will be avoided. In addition, a professional archaeologist will monitor ground
disturbance in this area
to prevent unidentified
intact deposits from
being disturbed;
Coordination with Eglin Air
Force Base will be g R ,[
implemented to insure
.the buried- fiber optic
cables located near the
construction route are ---
not disturbed; and
Normal and required traffic
control and safety
measures as required by
Walton County and the
Florida Department of
Transportation will be
implemented during
construction. -

As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Utilities Service has
assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposed project and has determined
that the proposal will not have a significant effect on the human environment and
therefore an Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared.
Copies of the Environmental Assessment are available for review at:

For the holiday season,
there's nothing like a cozy
little restaurant with warm
ambience and an even warm-
er staff. Such it is at Helga's
Restaurant and Biergarten
in the Merchant's Walk pla-
za in Bluewater Bay. For-
merly the Bitburger Pub,
Peter and Helga Keilbach
opened Helga's in 2010,
showcasing family recipes
and hand-selected Ger-
man imports, such as beers,
wines, and the delicious
crisp pretzel imported from
Munich. I ordered one as an
appetizer, served with ei-
ther butter or mustard, and
it became the table favorite.
Lightly salted, a crisp gbld-
en brown crust, and warm
doughy center, it is pretzel
perfection. Forget cookies,
leave Santa a plate of these.
Helga's offers a simple
yet sophisticated menu.
Each order is prepared with
precision, as evidenced by
owner Peter Kielbach who
can be seen behind the bar
in a three-piece suit ensur-
ing each beer has the perfect
amount of head before serv-
ing it. A choice of three sal-
ads ($8)-house, Caprese,
and Greek- potato leek
soup, vegetable beef, gou-
lash and soup du jour, an ar-
ray of schnitzels, bratwurst,
spatzle and Bavarian favor-
ites compose the menu. An
attentive and kind server,
I believe her name is Al-
yssa, was eager to provide
samples of any item on the
menu, to my delight, having
limited acquaintance with
German fare.
My dining partner or-
dered the Kostriker ($3.50-
$5), a German black lager.
to compliment his meal
of Rostbraten ($22), a
10-ounce grilled New York
strip topped with onions in
a red wine sauce with sau-
erkraut, red cabbage, and
your choice of home-made
Spatzle or home fried po-
tatoes. A restaurant rar-
ity, Helga's happily permits
substitutions and replaced
Spatzle, a German noodle
dish, with mashed potatoes.
After sampling several
beers, I settled on the Bit-
burger to go with a classic
Wiener schnitzel-a flat-
tened, breaded, and fried
chicken breast or pork-with
cucumber salad and Ger-
man potato salad. While I
dislike American potato sal-
ad, German potato salad is
a dish to be relished, minus
the relish. Sliced potatoes
in a vinegar based dressing
with a few sprigs of parsley,
it is light on the palate and
a refreshing change from
the heavier food of winter
months.
Midway through our din-
ner, my dining partner and I
sampled each other's meals.
He fell head over heels in
love with schnitzels, in fact


I believe we may be vaca-
tioning in Germany soon,
and raved about the light,
crispy breading, which I felt
needed salt. Cutting into his
perfectly cooked Rostbraten,
the juices and red wine
sauce mingled for a burst of
flavor that upon the tongue
brings out the peppered,
smokiness of grilled meat.
Although I prefer a filet to
a New York strip, Helga's
gives Rostbraten the flavor
of which every steak lover
dreams.
The dessert menu, if one
saves room, has mousse au


chocolate, rote grutze( mixed
berry compote with vanilla
sauce), eisbecher (ice cream
with berries and chocolate
cake crumbles) or a selec-
tion of German cakes and
pies (all in the $5 range).
While Helga's is the per-
fect place for a couple's night
out or Christmas party (as
we were attending), chil-
dren too can find something
on the menu with spaghetti
Bolognese or boulette (meat-
Sball with French fries).

By REID TUCKER
It is no exaggeration to
say that John and Becky
Saltsman are among the
most community-oriented
families in Walton County.
It should also come as
no surprise that they were
chosen as this year's Christ-
mas Family, as The Herald-
Breeze received numerous
nominations to that effect
from friends-and people in
the community. Individual-
ly, the Saltsmans, who cel-
ebrated their 30th wedding
anniversary in June, have
been involved in more than
their fair share of communi-
ty service projects over the
years. Together they form
a link in a four-generation
chain of abiding connection
with the place they live.
For them, family, education
and community service are
shared concepts.
The succession of com-
munity involvement be-
gan with Becky's parents,
Don and Mary Steele, who
founded the Association of
Retarded Citizens of Walton
County (now known sim-
ply as "ARC") in DeFuniak
Springs in 1973. Becky, who
was in eighth grade at that
time, said ARC literally
had to start from scratch
without state funding, as
Florida's mid-'70s budget
crunch resulted in a shift
from state-supported in-
stitutionalization of people
with mental disabilities to
community-based care and
education facilities. Though
it began on shaky ground,
ARC is still going strong to
this day.
That longevity is due in
part to the personal stake
ARC's founding family has
in the success of the orga-
nization: Becky's brother,
Ricky, is himself severely
mentally handicapped and
is a client of ARC. For her,
she sees the virtues of the
work ARC does' for Walton
County in the positive im-
pact it has had on her broth-
er's life.
"On a personal level, my
appreciation goes straight
to my brother," Becky said.
"If he didn't have some-
where to go and feel like he
was doing something with
his life, I see him just sit-
ting at home doing nothing.
When he goes to the work-
shop he gets to do things he
wouldn't get to do otherwise
and learn whatever he can
and feel good about himself.
The same thing is true for
the rest of the clients."
ARC's goal is to provide
education and assisted liv-
ing services such as class-
es in job training and life
management skills to de-
velopmentally disabled in-
dividuals, which can mean
both physical and mentally
handicaps. After John took


over the role of president
from Becky's 'father when
he retired 13 years ago and
ARC has been growing ex-
ponentially ever since, with
new projects either already
being implemented or on
the drawing board
Within the past 10 years,
ARC began offering em-
ployment-based education,
which affords clients the
opportunity to get hands-
on experience working in
the field, enriching their
lives through community
service tailored to their spe-
cific abilities while earning
a living. ARC also operates
a group home that is ca-
pable of housing five people
and plans to open a charter
school with curriculum em-
phasizing job training come
fall, pending approval from
the Walton County School
Board. More than 30 appli-
cants, aged 18 to 22, have
already expressed interest
in enrolling in the charter
school.
"One of the missions of
ARC is to provide a place for
developmentally disabled
people to come and learn
what they can and provide
assistance not only in their
activities of daily living, but
to help them prepare them-
selves, if they're capable, to
go out into the community
and earn a living," John
said.
Before becoming ARC's
president, John was already
an accomplished community
organizer with a special fo-
cus on education. The Wal-
ton High School graduate
started Bay Elementary
School's Parent-Teacher As-
sociation in 1979, when his
,children, Tara, now 41, and
Jason, now 38 (both with
children of their own), at-
tended school in Bay Coun-
ty. After he and Becky were
married, their son togeth-
er, Patrick, attended Val-
paraiso Elementary School,
where John also established
a parent-teacher organiza-
tion.
When the Saltsmans
moved back to DeFuniak
Springs in the '90s to be
nearer Becky's parents,
John founded yet another
PTO, this time at Maude
Saunders Elementary
School, where the couple's
youngest child, Angela, was
enrolled and Becky became
a substitute teacher. John
has also served as chairman
of the Walton County School
Board's District Advisory
Council, a community rep-
resentative group, since
2005. John and Becky also
established the youth soc-
cer program at the YMCA
of North Walton in the mid
'90s and were active in the
Red Cross, the United Way
and Kiwanis, which they are
still involved with today.


John said he never did
any of those things in or-
der to get recognition for
himself, but rather out of a
'genuine desire to better the
community. "I feel you're re-
sponsible for what you have
in your community," John
said. "If you don't do your
best to make it better, who
else is going to do it? It's just
part of who I am and what I
do."
The Saltsmans are active
in the First Baptist Church
of DeFuniak Springs and
have 'a holiday tradition
centered on church func-
tions and spending time
with their family, where
music plays a large role.
Their daughter Angela, who
majors in music at Florida
State University, plays the
piano and Christmas mu-
sic is a constant in their
home. Even Becky's broth-
er, Ricky, taught himself to
play the guitar. The family
enjoys going to see the spe-
cial Christmas services and
children's programs at First
Baptist.
"The reason for the sea-
son is Jesus Christ," Becky
said. "That's number one
with us. Christ is the reason
why we're here today and
this is a special time to ac-
knowledge all he's done for
us as a family."
Though Angela and Pat-
rick are not married, John's
oldest children, Tara and
Jason, both have young
children and families of
their own now, so rounding
up the whole bunch proves
quite the undertaking. Be-
cause of that, the Salts-
mans' main time to get to-
gether before the hustle and
bustle of Christmas day is
about a week before, when
the whole family gathers
at John and Becky's home
for dinner. Becky said the
whole family was glad to
have been chosen for this
year's Christmas edition of
The Herald Breeze as that
meant everyone would have
no choice but to clear their
schedules.
Perhaps not coinciden-
tally, it happened that the
interview that produced this
piece was concluding just as
the rest of the family start-
ed to arrive for dinner (and,
as Jason's two daughters
emphatically demanded,
s'mores). As the sounds of
their grandchildren laugh-
ing, the smells of a home-
cooked meal and the warmth
of a freshly stoked fire filled
the room, it was clear that
the Saltsmans were in their
element.
"Family is a lot of what
Christmas means to us,"
Becky said. "Being chosen
as the Christmas Family
has really made our holiday
special. We're so honored
to have been a part of this.
It has really brought us to-
gether as a family."


Becky and John Saltsman wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Written by Billy Gray,

It was a cold, overcast day. The wind whipped
furiously. At any other time, the dark clouds on
the horizon would make people sad and fearful,
but not today. After all, it was Christmas Eve.
Homes were decorated with Christmas lights.
Some blinked in unison, others had multicolored
lights. Even some bushes were adorned with
lights.
People's spirits were light and
the atmosphere seemed permeated
with gaiety and good cheer. Although
it was cold and overcast, a few people
were outside making last minute ad-
justments to their lights.
Mrs. Stephenson was sweeping
off her front porch when she heard
the familiar sound of a basketball be-
ing bounced. A smile could be seen
on her face as she said to herself, that
will be Andy.
Andy was 10 years old and wiry.
Although he was somewhat small for
his age, his athletic ability and cour-
age made him a favorite with boys
two and three years older. He was
a competitor and a somewhat reluc-
tant, natural born leader. Parents
and teachers alike encouraged Andy
to reach his full potential and concen-
trate more on school work and less on
athletics. Although Andy was moody,
he was always polite and would say,
"Yes ma'am" when his "great poten-
tial" was brought up.
But in the recess of his mind, the
secret desire of his heart was to be a
major league baseball player and to
play for the Boston Red Sox.
As Andy passed Mrs. Stevenson's
house, she called out, "Andy, you bet-
ter zip your jacket up or you'll catch
a death of cold and be sick for Christmas," Yes
ma'am, Andy replied, making no effort to zip the
jacket up and still alternating dribbling the ball
first with the left hand and then with the right.
Andy's blondish brown hair, which knew no dis-
cipline, thrashed about in the wind. His mood
somewhat serious, his thoughts turned to Christ-
mas. It'll be the same stuff, thought Andy. A
stocking filled with apples, oranges, and pepper-
mint candy. Ugh! I hate peppermint. Why can't
they just one time put Mars bars instead of that
stupid peppermint in my stocking. Oh yeah, some
toys that an eight-year old would like or a silly
game. Of course, it will be the usual underwear
and socks and probably a dumb bow tie to wear
to church. Hooray! Let's see, and then a new
Sunday school shirt and pants. Oh, no! They bet-
ter not get me short pants. If I get short pants,
that'll be so embarrassing. I just won't wear 'em.
All I really want is a Bobby Doerr baseball glove.
The glove I've got is so small and outdated it's a
total embarrassment.
Andy continued to bounce the ball as he
made his way up his driveway. As he entered the
house, Andy smelled the cinnamon sticks and the
pine from the Christmas tree. The warmth from
the roaring fireplace felt good.
Nellie, Andy's younger sister, was beside
herself with the excitement of Christmas. She
squealed with delight to see Andy. Nellie ran over
and gave Andy a hug. He, somewhat reluctantly,
hugged her back. "Oh Andy," Nellie exclaimed,
"Aren't you thrilled that Santa's coming tonight?"
Andy thought, Give me a break, but his self-disci-
pline kicked in and he smiled kindly at Nellie.
The high pitched excitement continued at the
supper table. Andy's controlled disposition was
intact he was lost in his thoughts. All he heard
was noise, not words.
:Andy thought, Well, in about two hours
mother will say, "Okay, children, time for bed, you
know Santa Claus doesn't visit while children are
still up."
After the supper table was cleared off, the
family sat around and listened to Christmas
music. Sure enough around eight o'clock Andy's
mom said, "Okay children, time for bed, you know
Santa Claus doesn't visit while children are still


up."


That was OK with Andy. He wanted to be
alone anyway. He made his way to his upstairs
bedroom. Andy loved his bedroom and its soli-
tude. This was where his dreams came true.
The bedroom was cold as Andy climbed into
bed. The feather bed mattress engulfed him and
there were so many covers on the bed, it was dif-
ficult to turn over under the weight.
Playing basketball all day had made Andy
tired and soon his eyes grew heavy and he was
fast asleep.


It was late September, and the season had
ended in a tie between the Red Sox and the Yan-
kees. Whoever won the game would go on the
World Series. Just like all season long, it was the
top of the ninth inning in Fenway Park and the
Red Sox were up by one run. With the Yankees
at bat, "ducks were on the pond," men at first,
second and third and two outs. The world had
turned deathly silent as the Yankees future Hall
of Famer strolled to the plate with a swagger that
looked like a king. Andy full of confidence, tugged
out his Red Sox cap. From his short stop position,
he could see the sun stream through the cracks of
the ancient ball park. Fall was in the air. Tobacco
smoke poured from the stands. Andy turned his
back to the crowd and looked at the left field wall
the "green monster." A ball against that baby,
Andy thought, and it will be all over.
Andy put his new Bobby Doerr glove over
his mouth and spit into the pocket. As he slowly
rubbed in the spit, he could still smell the cow-
hide from his new glove. As the Yankee slug-
ger settled in the batter's box, Andy got into his
fielding position. Crack! It sounded like a cannon
shot. Andy's reflexes sent him into action before
the sound reached the stands. The ball was in the
hole and headed for the left field. As though in
slow motion, people in the stands and the dugouts
rose to their feet. This could be the ball game.
Andy rose up and threw a perfect strike to the
big first baseman, nicking the fleet footed Yankee
by an eyelash. Fenway Park erupted. All the Red
Sox mobbed Andy.
What was that, Andy thought! It sounds like
a sleigh bell. Andy looked out the window. Why
that's a great big dog with antlers. Hey, they're
reindeer! Flying! And they're pulling a cart or a
wagon! And who's in the cart? It's an old man
with white hair and a beard. His cheeks look
like he has rough on 'em. And what's that in his
mouth? It's a pipe like, oh yeah, General MacAr-
thur smoked. Ah yes, a corn cob pipe. Listen to
that ho ho ho. Yep, that's him alright.
"Andy," his mother yelled. "It's time to wake
up and see what Santa brought you." The call
startled Andy awake. His dream had embar-
rassed him. Andy thought, Thank goodness no
one will ever know. Boy what a jerk, he said as
he looked down at the floor.


A


neighborhood, couldn't hold back his emotions
any longer. His lips quivered, tears ran down his
cheeks and he ran to his only safe harbor his
mother's arms. As she engulfed him she said,
"Andy, you are Phillip's very best friend, and he
gave you his very best gift for Christmas. God
looked down from His heavenly throne and knew
we needed His very best gift. And He gave us
the most precious gift He had to offer His Son -
Jesus Christ. Andy, that's what Christmas is all
about."


Christmas


tory

As he made his way downstairs, he could see
the Christmas paper strewn everywhere. Nellie
exclaimed, "Look Andy, see what I got? Hurry
Andy. Hurry, open your presents."
Andy, taking his time, began opening his
presents. "Yep, here's the underwear and the
socks. Sure 'nuff a church shirt and a stupid bow
tie. If this next box contains my pants, and if they
are short pants, I swear I'll never wear 'em." As
Andy opened the box, he showed the most emo-
tion he had all day. "Thank goodness, they're not
short pants!" There was a game he
didn't care for. Next, they opened the
Christmas stockings hanging on the
fireplace.
Oh boy, there are the apples,
oranges and yes, here is the pep-
permint stick. Why, just one time,
couldn't they put in a Mars bar? Andy
thought.
Andy politely thanked everyone for
his gifts and walked over and gave
his mother a big hug.
Mr. Stover called out, "Andy, aren't
you going to open this other gift?" Mr.
Stover was always at Andy's house on
special occasions. He was the handy
man in the neighborhood and had no
family of his own. Mr. Stover often
came by to play cards and dominoes.
"Who's that from, Mr. Stover?"
Andy asked. "I don't know," Mr.
Stover replied, "when I got here
this morning it was leaning against
the screen door." Andy tried to con-
trol his excitement but ran to the
door. It looked like a shoe box or a
hat box. Gee, what could it be, he
thought as he took off the red pa-
per and gold bow. Andy lifted the top
and yelled louder than he ever had.
"Praise the Lord! Thank you moth-
er, Oh thank you, this is all I really
wanted for Christmas a Bobby Do-
err baseball glove." He could smell the fresh cow-
hide and he beat his fist into the pocket to make
the leather softer. In his mind, he was already
putting lard on the glove to make it still softer.
When he reached his mother, she said, "Wait a
minute, Andy. I didn't give you the glove." Mr.
Stover said, "Here's the note that fell out of the
box." Andy, holding back a little, walked over to
pick up the card. He was confused. "Read the
card aloud Andy," his mother said.
Andy's small voice commenced reading.


"Dear Andy,
Do you remember last year when I came to
your school? The other boys would pick on me
and call me Bugs Bunny because my teeth pro-
truded. Some called me four eyes because of my
thick glasses. Some made fun of me and said I
had a Yankee accent. Do you remember one day
you told all those boys not to pick on me anymore
because I was your friend? Because I can't play
ball very well, nobody would ever pick me on their
teams that is, nobody but you. Sometimes you
wouldn't even let me be the last one picked so my
feelings wouldn't be hurt. I've known for a long
time Andy that, even though you are the best
athlete in our class, you've been ashamed of that
little bitty glove of yours. So when my parents
asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told
them a Bobby Doerr baseball glove. They asked
me why and I told them I wanted to give my very
best friend the very best gift I could. This is my
very best gift for my very best friend. I hope you
enjoy it.
Phillip"

I.. Em


Dear Auntie Em,
Here we are at the Christ-
mas season and I find my-
self to be a very lucky young
man. I have a girlfriend
I love. I have friends and
family that are there for me.
The only thing that could
make my holidays better
would be having a steady
job, so I could purchase my
girlfriend a nice present.
Things have been tough in
the construction industry
this year, and fve not been
able to save up and buy her
a ring, like we both wanted
this Christmas. Any ideas
for an inexpensive, yet ro-,
mantic Christmas present I
could get my girlfriend? I'd
really appreciate any ideas.
Sincerely,
Lovesick and broke

Dear Lovesick,
Awww, nothing like hav-
ing society tell you it's time
to buy a present by its cal-
endar and not your wallet's.
But, never fear. I may have
a few ideas about romance
left up my sleeve.
Women want to hear
what you think and what
you think about them, so, go


old school and wax poetic. It
only costs a pen and some
paper. Write about meeting
her, what you thought or the
way she makes you feel. You
can add in some nice things
about the way she looks and
things you admire about her.
Sign it with love and seal it
up. You can even be a little
fancy and use a little wax
to make a seal for the enve-
lope. Grab a few strands of
ribbon or even wrap it or put
it in a box and give her a gift
from your heart.
You can also include a
few gift certificates for the
future, like a picnic. Or if
you're really committed,
give her a gift certificate to
be redeemed in the future
for a home and a family.
Work hard and dream
big, Lovesick. Those two
things are relatively free,
and you'll soon be able to
cash those gift certificates
in for the dreams you both
have dreamed together.
Good luck, God bless and
Merry Christmas to all.

This week, caught up in
the last-minute madness of
Christmas shopping, I de-
cided to take a moment to
reflect on the real signifi-
cance of Christmas. Online,
I found an original work by
radio broadcaster and Hee-
Haw cast member John
Henry Faulk that tells a
heartwarming tale of chance
encounters with unlikely
angels. Although I cannot
copy the story here without
the author's permission, I
dearly wanted to share it.
In this mid-20th century
holiday tale, a man driv-
ing his truck the day after
Christmas saw a young boy
with no shoes, raggedy over-
alls and a makeshift sweat-
er walking down the road
holding an orange.-The man
offered the young boy a ride
and learned he was going to
show his cousin the orange
Santa Claus brought him.
Although the driver hesi-
tated to bring up the sub-
ject of Christmas because
he worried this young man
might be from a family who
had not had the good for-
tune to celebrate it, the boy
dove headfirst into an ear-
nest tale of "the wonderful-
est Christmas in the United
States."
A modest 12-year-old, the
boy recounted how a wom-
an came by his home and
said everyone was welcome
to come into town and get
themselves some "Christ-
mastime." The young boy
and his siblings sat at the
gate of their home all day
waiting for their father
to return, oblivious to his
warning that there might
be nothing to return with.
However, when the children
saw their father up the road,
with a cheek-splitting grin,
they ran to his wagon and
discovered two chickens,
apples, oranges, all sorts


of goodies and "stripety
candy." While the children
could only stare, the boy's
parents saw their neighbor,
a sharecropper, named Sam
Jackson and asked if he had
gone into town to get "some
Christmastime." Jackson
replied no, he didn't know
if they would allow colored
people to participate. The
boy's father and mother got
a knowing look, and his fa-
ther shouted, "Dad-blame-
it, Sam Jackson, it's a sure a
good thing you come by here.
Lord have mercy, I liked
to forgot. Old Santa Claus
would have me in court if he
heard about this. The last
thing he asked me if I lived
out here near you. Said he
hadn't seen you around
and said he wanted me to
bring part of this out here
to you and your family, your
woman and your children."
Jackson broke into the same
cheek-splitting grin as the
boy's father and the two
families spent all of Christ-
mas day together, cooking,
and playing and celebrating
the first Christmas they'd
ever had.
At the dinner table, the
boy's father asked Jackson to
say grace because he wasn't
much of a "church man."
Jackson stood and raised
his head with a smile, say-
ing "Lord, I hope you having
as nice a Christmas up there
with your angels as we're
having down here because it
sure is Christmastime down
here. And I just wanted to
say Merry Christmas to you,
Lord."
Faulk's tale brought tears
to my eyes and reminded me
that an unlikely angel may
be waiting to remind us how
blessed we are, especially
this time of year, and the
merriest way to celebrate
Christmas is to be an angel
for someone else.

Lewis
Samuel Adolphus Lewis,
92, passed away Dec. 16,
2010 at Chautauqua Re-
habilitation and Nursing
Home in DeFuniak Springs,
Fla.
Sam was born Jan. 31,
1918 in Rossville, Ga. to
Samuel A. and Grace Law-
ton Lewis.
Sam had three brothers, and
three sisters and is the last
to pass away. Sam and his
family moved to Chattanoo-
ga, Tenn. at an early age.
On July 12, 1941 Sam
marred Nellie Pearl (Sue)
Workman. They have three
sons, and one daughter. The
family moved to East Ridge,
Tenn. in 1958 and in 2003
for health reasons relocated
to DeFuniak Springs.
Sam was an outstanding
welder and retired from
Combustion Engineering
(Alstom) in Chattanooga,
Tenn. in 1980. He and es-
pecially his family were
extremely proud of his ac-
complishments and some of
the important projects he
was entrusted to weld on
such as the nuclear reactor
on the submarine Triton. In
the late 50's Sam became a


formulator for the company
in the metallurgy lab creat-
ing welding rods and as Sue
says "he was the best they
ever had." He was very cre-
ative and did lots of welding
for the yard and friends and
neighbors.
Sam loved to walk and
early in the mornings would
meet his friends at the East
Gate Mall and at his homes
away from home, the Krys-
tal and Burger King, where
they would drink coffee and
spin their yarns. Sam also
loved to attend night court
and council meetings in
East Ridge for entertain-
ment; maybe that's where
reality TV came from. He
had a reserved seat at night
court.
One thing is certain; Sam
never met a stranger and
could instantly carry on a
conversation with anyone.
Survivors are his daugh-
ter, Martha Carolynn Jones
of DeFuniak Springs; his
sons, Robert Howard Lewis
of Dothan, Ala., and De-
Funiak Springs, Samuel
Alan Lewis and wife, Becky,
of Idaho Falls, Idaho and
Bruce Randal Lewis and
wife, Cheryl of North Attle-
boro, 11 grandchildren, 17
great- grandchildren and
two great- great-grandchil-
dren.
Sam was preceded in death
by his siblings, and his son-
in-law, Gene Austin Jones
of DeFuniak Springs.
Donations may be made to
the charity of your choice in
Sam's memory.

The Broken Chain
Author Ron Tranmer


We knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved your dearly.
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go, alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again. :.

With all our love,

Macedonia Missionary Baptist

visits Chautauqua Rehab Center


During this wonderful
Advent Season our minds
are really on what are we
getting, and what am I go-
ing to give the person who
has everything? The raging
debate about saying "Happy
Holidays," or "Merry Christ-
mas" is not at issue when we
think about the theology of
giving.
Shepherds did not have
much to offer on the Judean
hill the night the angels ap-
peared. In fact, they were
afraid because angels did
not appear to shepherds-
nobody visited shepherds.
At first glance in reading
this story we pass over their
fear. Normally, angels came
to bring either a message of
judgment, or comfort. Thank
God they came to bring com-
fort-be not afraid! Whew!

The ro

Bethlehem wasI a

le hewsImnt


Shepherds were not liked
by many people. When they
came to town they were
smelly and in need of per-
sonal hygiene. However
on that hill angels came to
them-sent from God! They
could care less about the
recipients-they were mes-
sengers, with a message.
The shepherds were actual-
ly less than common people.
They were loners, who un-
derstood sheep better than
understanding humans. Re-
ally-who can understand
we humans?
Actually, the visitation
to the shepherds signaled
acceptance by God to all we
humans. If God can have an
audience with stinky shep-
herds-He can have an au-
dience with all of us, any of
us. Perhaps they can teach


Rev. Dr. G. Charles Sat-
terwhite, Pastor
us some things such as, si-
lence, contemplation, and
dedication to a given task.
We are so busy being occu-
pied with our own little do-
main that we sometime for-
get the interruption of God's
message.
Actually, we are visited
by God's messengers to wor-
ship, and bring the Good
News to others. As you cel-
ebrate this Advent Season
write a meaningful message
to some unsuspecting per-
son. Give a gift to the less
fortunate. Read the Christ-
mas Story to family. Share a
hug with someone you real-
ly don't like. If God can send
reconciliation to shepherds
we certainly can spread this
message to others! God be-
coming man-with us, to be
in us!


Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the
days of Herod the king. behold, there came wise men
from the east to Jerusalem. saying, where is he that is
born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the
east, and are come to worship him.

Mr. Frank Maska, 74,
passed away Thursday,
Dec. 16, 2010. He was born
March 21, 1936 in Chicago,
Ill. to Frank and Marie Si-
pek Maska.
Mr. Maska had lived in
Walton County for 20 years
moving from Los Angeles,
Calif. He was Christian by
faith. Frank lived a humble
life and only wanted to serve
Christ Jesus by serving oth-
ers. He was gifted with help-
ing others without consider-
ation for himself; he would
literally give the coat off his
back. Frank even grew his
hair yearly to donate it to
"Locks of Love." He did not
want to burden anyone with
a service, but requested in-
stead for us to love, help,
and forgive one another.
He always had a smile, and

S.W. Boys Rally Past Sneads 75-72


By PATRICK CASEY
Tanner Degafferelly
scored 26 points as the South
Walton Seahawks held off
a visit from the Sneads Pi-
rates to capture their first
district win of the season
with a 75-72 victory on Dec.
14.

South Walton (4-5) trailed
14-13 after one quarter of
play as poor shooting and
ball-handling plagued the
squad in the opening eight
minutes of play.
The Seahawks got the
offense going in the second
quarter as they went on an
11-2 run with 5:16 left in
the first half to grab a 24-16


lead. Sneads rallied to close
the gap to 34-32 at halftime
despite foul trouble for sev-
eral of their starters. The
game stayed close through-
out the third quarter as
each team had scoring runs
during the eight minutes
of play with the Seahawks
holding a 51-49 lead enter-
ing the fourth quarter.
The scoring pace picked
up in the final quarter with
Degafferelly turning in sev-
eral key scoring opportuni-
ties to bolster his squad to a
victory. Jerrard Tookes and
Chadd Bryant each scored
12 points in the contest and
helped South Walton hold
on for the win after Shafer


Martin fouled out of the
contest in the second half.
Senior Josh Rogers scored
26 points to lead the Pirates
while teammate John Locke
scored 16 points before
fouling out of the contest.
Sneads is 4-4 overall on the
year.
Game Notes: South Wal-
ton lost the junior varsity
contest 40-39 as the Sea-
hawks missed their final
shot of the game as time
expired. The Seahawks are
not taking part in any holi-
day tournaments and will
return to action on Tues-
day, Jan. 4, when they host
Graceville.

Walton Girls 9-5 at Break


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
picked up an important win
on Dec. 13 as they defeated
Panama City Bay 55-45 in a
District 1, Class 3A contest.
Walton used the long
distance shooting of Gillian
Infinger and Caretha Paul
to earn a 13-13 tie with the
Tornadoes after one period
of play as the athletic squad
from Bay County attacked


the Braves on the interior.
Sierra Contreras and
Taliah Moore got the hot
hand in the second quarter
as they scored six points
apiece while the Braves de-
fense clamped down on the
Tornadoes offense to build a
25-17 halftime lead.
Walton pushed the lead
to 40-26 after three quarters
of play as a pair of technical
fouls on Nefertiti Robin-


son helped the Braves add
points at the free throw line
to lengthen the lead.
The Tornadoes rallied in
the fourth quarter as Wal-
ton got sloppy with the bas-
ketball and gave away pos-
sessions while Bay center
A-Keelah Jackson attacked
the post to the tune of 20
points on the night to cut
the deficit to six points with
two minutes to play.


Walton rallied for a pair
of baskets to end the threat
and take the win. Walton
improved to 6-0 in district
play as Infinger and Moore
led the charge with 16 points
each.
The Braves lost their
last game before Christmas
on Thursday night as PDL
posted another victory over
Walton to sweep the season
series with a 53-34 decision.

Seahawks struggle through a cold-shooting



second half to beat Freeport 2-1


By REID TUCKER
The chilly night air had
detrimental effects on the
soccer teams of both South
Walton and Freeport.
The sub-20-degree tem-
peratures forced the Sea-
hawks to hold on for a 2-1
win despite having their
usually red-hot offense turn
cold in the second half. As
for the Bulldogs, the cold
weather did little to de-
ter their drive, but a mo-
mentary lapse in shooting
caused a few critical misses
and ultimate cost them a tie
game and possibly a come-
back win.
The Monday, Dec. 13,
match was the first meeting
between the county rivals
since last season, when the
Seahawks handed Freeport
a stinging 4-0 defeat. How-
ever, after jumping to a 2-0
lead in the first half, none of
the South Walton's 11 shots
in the second half found the
back of the net.
Freeport, on the other
hand, battled through the
first half and gained mo-
mentum after halftime.
The team to put up a goal
of its own while goalie Levi
Osterhoff kept South Wal-
ton's shooters at bay in the
second with 28 saves to his


credit. Nevertheless, the
cold also seemingly took its
toll on the Dogs when a re-
covered penalty kick near
the end of the game halted
any meaningful advance the
team could hope to make be-
fore time ran out.

"We stayed right with
them in the first half," said
Freeport coach Carla Grif-
fith. "It was very competi-
tive. They have a good team
and a fast team but I think
our guys kept up with them.
Of course I would have liked
to have won but I'm not dis-
appointed in the team be-
cause they played hard."
Roberto de la Torre and
Andy Rodriguez carried the
Seahawks offensively, as
the pair scored a goal apiece.
South Walton struggled in
the second half starting in
the 73rd minute, as shots on
goal went over the net, came
up short or were kicked out
of bounds by Freeport defen-
seman all within minutes of
each other.
Freeport got on the board
in the 57th minute on a
breakaway goal from Bryce
Sefo, who a minute later
put another shot on target
but it was intercepted and
kicked out. After Kevin


Castro got fouled in the
box in the 78th minute, his
penalty kick just did miss
the goal by bouncing off the
left post and into the wait-
ing hands of Seahawk goalie
Jacob Scheler. The missed
shot all but deflated Free-
port's hopes for a tie and the
time ran out on a victory for
South Walton.


Though the Seahawks
notched up another win, im-
proving their record to 5-2-
3, assistant coach Fletcher
Isacks was less than im-
pressed with the way the
game was played. While
the cold weather no doubt
factored in, Isacks said the
team "got outhustled" by a
hungry Freeport squad de-

head for possession of the ball in the second half. (Photo by
Reid Tucker)


termined to prove itself. In
fact, Isacks said that if the
penalty kick had not been
recovered by Scheler, the
possibility of a Freeport win
would have been a very real
concern.
"I think saving that PK
shifted the momentum back


into our favor," Isacks said.
"From that point on we kept
pressing. The wind went out
of their sails at that point.
Heads up keeper play saved
the three defensivemen
who let that thing happen.
[Scheler] stepped up and
helped us win the game."

Dec. 22, 1979 College
Football Hall of Fame coach
Joe Paterno and Penn State
upset No. 15 Tulane at the
Liberty Bowl in Memphis,
9-6. Despite out-rushing
Tulane by 250 yards and
posting 27 first downs, the
Nittany Lions managed just
three Herb Menhardt field
goals to provide the winning
margin. The victory was Pa-
terno's seventh bowl win.
He will look for his 25th
bowl win versus Florida in
the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1
in Tampa.

Dec. 20, 1975 Miami

In what is now known as
the Capital One Bowl, Mi-


ami (Ohio) remains the only
school to win the bowl game
in three consecutive years.
The win capped the best
three-year run in school his-
tory in which the RedHawks
posted a 32-1-1 record and
won three Mid-American
Conference titles.

Dec. 21, 2000 College
Football Hall of Fame coach

the second time UNLV was
victorious in its hometown
bowl.

Bowl.

Dec. 25, 1988 No. 18
Washington State topped
No. 14 Houston in Hono-
lulu's Aloha Bowl, 24-22.
Washington State mount-
ed an early lead, notching


24 second-quarter points.
Houston was poised for a
comeback victory, but Wa-
zzu defender Tuineau Ali-
pate's big hit forced a fum-
ble that was recovered by
teammate Artie Holmes at
his own five yard line to pre-
serve the win.

Dec. 26, 1998- No. 23 Mis-
souri bested West Virginia
and College Football Hall
of Fame coach Don Nehlen

rently known as the Insight
Bowl) in Tucson, Ariz. The
Tigers overcame a prolific
outing from Mountaineers
gunslinger Marc Bulger,
who compiled 429 passing
yards and four touchdowns
in a losing effort. Missouri
engineered the win in part
by earning nine points off
of blocked punts, returning
one 70 yards for a score and
blocking another through
the West Virginia end for a
safety.










Paxton kicks Laurel Hill to the curb for



the ninth-straight time with 78-58 win


By REID TUCKER
No greater rivalry in lo-
cal high school basketball
exists than this: the conces-
sion stand won't even sell
blue Powerade when Paxton
hosts Laurel Hill.

Whether it is sports drinks or
conquests on the court, Pax-
ton's fans and players have
seen only red in the team's
recent past against the Ho-
boes. The Bobcats (8-1, 3-0)
continued that trend on Fri-
day Dec. 17, as Shaq Jack-
son's game-high 31 points
led them a blowout 78-58
victory over Laurel Hill (8-
2, 5-1), a ninth straight win
against their pitched foes.
Jackson was backed up by
Chad Zessin, who scored
19 points (and played what
coach Jeff Bradley said was
the best game of his varsity


career), and Josh McLaney,
who racked up 16 points,
nine of which came via three
3-pointers.
Bradley was exceedingly
proud of the effort displayed
by the team considering the
stakes of the game, which
extended beyond just the
longstanding rivalry. Both
squads were undefeated in
the district with just one
overall loss apiece. What's
more, the Bobcats had
played seven games in 10
days (compared to Laurel
Hill's two in the past week),
including a 57-38 win over
Baker on Thursday.
"The biggest thing about
tonight was coming off of
seven games in 10 days,"
Bradley said. "It was really
a test of our endurance and
character. To come into this
rivalry game in this setting


at the end of a big stretch
and get a win was really be-
yond huge for us."
The first quarter was
characterized by Paxton
striking early and often, fa-
voring the fast break press
offense. Jackson and Zes-
sin score with impunity,
accounting for eight points
apiece, while McLaney add-
ed six. The closest Laurel
Hill got in the game was 9-4,
after which the Bobcats laid
on basket after basket to
stretch the lead to 22-11 by
the end of the first quarter.
Laurel Hill's Seth Strick-
land had to take up the slack
from team mate and top-
scorer Issaic Williams, who
got in foul trouble after scor-
ing just two points in the pe-
riod. Strickland rose to the
occasion though, scoring 26
points over the course of the


game. None of Laurel Hill's
other players got above 10
points, which Hoboes head
coach Kent Zessin (the un-
cle of Paxton's Chad Zessin)
said was indicative of the
problems the team faced on
the court.
"I felt like we didn't play
well together as a team,"
Zessin said. "I felt a couple
players played their tails
off and two or three didn't.
In a district game you've got
to come out and do the little
things. The extra effort is
what it takes to win a ball-
game of this caliber in this
type of rivalry."

Jackson's strong outside
shot and fierce work in the
paint gave Paxton a nine-
point lead through most of
the second quarter, though
Strickland did his best to


keep pace for the Hoboes
by scoring 10 points of his
own. Nevertheless, the Bob-
cats went up 42-28 at the
half, thanks in part to the
contribution of four baskets
from the charity stripe by
Bradley's son Marcus, who
went eight-for-eight in free
throws on the night.
Zessin opened up with
six points in the third quar-
ter and was joined at the
40-seconds-to-go mark by
McLaney, who drained a
pair of 3s, which shoved
the Bobcats to a 59-42 lead
by the end of the period.
Strickland scored six points
for the Hoboes and was aid-
ed by four other players, all
of whom scored two points
apiece.
It took the Hoboes until
4:45 left to get on the score-
board in the fourth. Wil-
liams was Laurel Hill's main
scorer in the period, putting
up five points to make it
an even 10 for him, before
fouling out. Paxton, on the
other hand, blitzed the Ho-
boes with the fast break and
Marcus Bradley scored on
a string of five free throws
for the Bobcats to take the
game by a 20-point margin.


The win against Lau-
rel Hill confirms Paxton's
number-one spot at the top
of the District 1-standings
with the Hoboes seeded sec-
ond. The two teams will face
off'again come January, this
time in Laurel Hill. Coach
Bradley said he was confi-
dent the team can continue
the winning ways it has set
as a precedent so far this
season, in spite of graduat-
ing nine seniors last year.
Being short that many up-
perclassmen might make
some coaches worry, but
Bradley said it's made his
players hungrier than ever
to prove themselves on the
court.
"The pressure of the last
three years was really hard
on me as a coach," Bradley
said. "This year, coaching
this group of young men,
has been the most fun I've
had in a long time because
the pressure hasn't been
there. With nine seniors
gone everyone expects you
to be down. To watch them
fight every day to prove peo-
ple wrong has been a lot of
fun. To work with these kids
on a daily basis is a dream
for anybody."


SCORING 19 POINTS on the evening, Chad Zessin PAXTON'S SHAQ JACKSON'S performance was char-
played "the best game of his varsity career," said Paxton acterized by a one-two combination of outside shooting
head coach Jeff Bradley. Zessin scored eight points in the prowess and an attack on the backboard which earned him
game's opening minutes and never let the pressure up. (Pho- a game-higher 31 points. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

Ponce de Leon hands Lafayette a stinging 59-47 loss


By REID TUCKER
Ponce de Leon's Lady
Pirates had to search far
afield for an opponent who
could give them a run for
their money and they found
it in Lafayette.
Ponce de Leon (11-0)
battled through four tough
quarters in a defensive
battle against Lafayette, of
Mayo, Fla., but eventually
ground out a 59-47 victory
on Saturday, Dec. 18. The
two teams clashed in last
year's regional finals, with
Lafayette taking the win by
a similar margin.
Led by Hillary Harper,
who scored 19 points, the
Lady Pirates pulled away
from Lafayette after tying
up at the half to win by a
12-point margin. The next-
highest scoring players for
Ponce de Leon were Jasmine
Flock, who contributed 12
points, and Ashley Harper,
who tallied 11. The Hornets'
top scorer was Rhoda Reid,
with 13 points.
Things started off
rocky for Ponce de Leon as
the team got in foul trouble
early in the first quarter.
Three starters, Kaitlyn
Carroll, Shalea Yates and
Jaycee Mayo, were benched
with two fouls each and
didn't see much action un-
til later in the game. Their
absence on the court was
palpable, as Carroll and
Mayo only put up a handful
of points between the two of
them and Yates managed
only nine before the end of
the game.
Harper filled in the gap
left by her team mates and
carried the Pirates through


all four quarters, scoring at
least two points per period.
While Ponce de Leon
head coach Tim Alford was
happy to get a win at home,
he said his players need -to
get settled down sooner and
not let the excitement of a
big crowd distract them from
playing solid basketball.
"I was pleased with their
effort," Alford said. "If any-
thing we could have made a
little bit better decisions. I
don't want to have our girls
in foul trouble. Fortunately
we kept it close and stayed
in the game then we got
settled down and fought our
way back."
Lafayette carried a three-
point lead going into the
second quarter, but the ad-
vantage shifted frequently
between the two squads
over the course of the period.
The Hornets' Chelsey Kelly
drained a 3 with 10 seconds
left to put her team up by
another three points, but
Yates pulled up and sank a
3-pointer of her own to tie
the game 26-26 at halftime.
The Pirates pulled ahead
32-30 with 5:30 left to go
in the third quarter, which
proved to be Ponce's most
consistent in terms of scor-
ing. Hillary and Ashley
Harper each scored four
points, as did Flock and
Yates. Cartaesha Macklin
scored two points for the
Hornets but without support
from the rest of the team,
Lafayette was outpointed
16-11 in the quarter.
The fourth quarter was
a war fought from behind
the charity stripe and it was
Ponce de Leon who came out


on top. Once securing a nine-
point lead with four minutes
to go, Ponce de Leon elected
to eat up the clock while still
setting up its players to draw
fouls and make free throw
shots. The Lady Pirates col-
lectively went 11-for-14 in
free throws, compared to
Lafayette, who hit 50 per-
cent of their free throws.
As the buzzer sounded,
Ponce de Leon had outpoint-


HILLARY HARPER led
the Lady Pirates in scoring,
with 19 points to her credit.
She had to step up for the
team when three of her fel-
low starters were benched
in the first quarter due to
foul trouble. (Photo by Reid
Tucker)


ed the Hornets 17-10 in the
period, for a final score of
59-47 and the win. Alford
said the Pirates will likely
face Lafayette later on in the
season, possibly even again
at the regional final. The
win gives Ponce de Leon a
good indication of what the
team might be up against.
"It's good to know we have a
chance for on down'the road,"
Alford said. "There's a good


chance they'll be coming out
(on top) on that side of the
region. For this time early
in the year [having a win in
front of a home crowd] was
what we wanted."
Ponce de Leon won't face
another opponent until they
go up against Spanish Fort
on Tuesday, Dec. 28 at the
Hilton Sandestin Beach
Basketball Blowout in Free-
port.

Legislators to



file bill for Walton



County seawalls


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County's legisla-
tive delegation has made a
decision to file a bill in the
Florida Legislature address-
ing the matter of coastal
armoring or seawalls con-
structed along the Walton
County gulf as a result of
Hurricane Dennis.
During the emergency pe-
riod following the July 2005
hurricane, Walton County
issued permits to beachfront
property owners in order
for the homeowners to put
up temporary armoring to
shore up their property. The
permits were issued with
the understanding that a
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
permit would be required in
order for armoring to stay in
place on a permanent basis.
Property owners built sever-
al miles of seawalls and oth-
er armoring in connection
with the emergency county
permits, much of which
is still in place. However,
years later, post-Dennis
seawall owners have for the


most part been unsuccessful
in obtaining state armoring
permits.

Officials put off

revisions to beach

driving ordinance


By DOTTY NIST
Commissioners got an
earful from the public at the
Dec. 14 public hearing on
proposed revisions to Wal-
ton County's beach driving
ordinance, but the end re-
sult was no action, at least
for now.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones was the only
commissioner in favor of
going ahead with revisions
that would have made beach
driving permits available to
more than 150 additional
people. The other four com-
missioners voted in favor
of District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen's motion
to put off consideration of
changes to the beach driv-
ing ordinance until Feb. 8.
Pridgen said hearing the
public's concerns and sug-
gestions in connection with
the ordinance had raised
unanswered questions for
him about what was being
proposed.
Mrs. Jones said her office
had been bombarded with
calls from people interested
in getting a beach driving
permit. She was disappoint-
ed that the opportunity to
go ahead with expansion of
the permit program had not


been taken as early as pos-
sible.
The hearing was in con-
junction with the regular
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting at the South
Walton Courthouse An-
nex. The meeting was well-
attended by people keenly
interested in the beach driv-
ing issue.
For the public, beach
driving in Walton County is
restricted to permit holders
and limited to two short des-
ignated sections of Grayton
Beach and Inlet Beach, dur-
ing certain hours.
Since the beach driving
ordinance was previously
amended in January 2010,
aside from permits going
to charter boat operators,
no. new permits have been
granted, just renewals for
existing permit holders who
own property in the county
and meet the other condi-
tions of the ordinance.
As part of that previous
revision, in order to be eli-
gible for a permit, property
owners have been required
to have a habitable struc-
ture in place on their par-

Fruitcake for



the rest of us


By ALICIA LEONARD
I like fruitcake. I know,
that may make me weird,
but there's something about
all the different things
thrown into it and the time of
year when it's usually gifted
that brings back memories,
many of them funny, about
receiving the veritable nut,
fruit and cake ensemble
that many claim to dislike.
Every Christmas Story Ever
Told(and then some!) writ-
ten by Michael Carlton,
James FitzGerald and John
K. Alvarez, reminded me
of fruitcake, with one ex-


ception; everyone that sees
this show will probably like
it. There's a great big mix
of funny holiday nostalgia,
great memories, Christmas
facts, pop culture referenc-
es, awesome characteriza-
tion by the actors and tight
direction that very well may
lead to this show being a
holiday tradition in its own
right.

Friends of Animal Control


Shelter gaining traction


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2010

I I


;By LEAH STRATMANN

The newly minted Wal-
:ton County non-profit group
:Friends of the Walton Coun-
ty Animal Control Shelter is
off to a good start. Formed
in September, president Bill
Bard said of it, "We've been
growing and I'm happy with
the way things are going."
Treasurer Ella Cara re-
ported they have received
sales tax exemption from
the state of Florida, which
is good for five years. "We
also have $37 paid members
(memberships are $10 an-
nually) and have received
a couple of generous dona-
tions." Carol noted if the do-
nations are something other
than money, a receipted list
of donations without mon-
etary.value must be given to
the donor.
Bard reported that so far
the shelter has participated
in three flyouts of dogs from
Walton County to a no-kill
shelter in south Florida.
"This frees up space in the
Walton County shelter.
These dogs being flown out
would have been euthanized
otherwise," Bard noted.
One of the goals of the or-
ganization is to inform the
public about issues affect-
ing animals and responsible


ways to be a pet owner. To
that end, the group has been
going to public events when
possible, showcasing a few
of the animals, and provid-
ing education to those stop-
ping by the booth.
As the group is new, it is
evolving its missions and
ways in which to accomplish
goals. "Before we did it, it
was never discussed that
we would be taking animals
out into the community for
adoption. This was not origi-
nally part of it, going public
was mostly to provide infor-
mation about spaying and
neutering pets," Caro noted.
The county is investigat-
ing the degree of liability
the Friends might have in
showcasing animals for
adoption at public events.
When someone expresses
an interest in a particular
animal, they still have to fill
out the application form and
undergo the background
check before they can pick
up the animal and take it
home. The cost of adoption is
$55 and includes spaying or
neutering the pet and send-
ing it along with all current
shots.
Another goal of the
Friends is to be able to pro-
vide the funds for low cost
spay and neuter clinics for


animals which did not come
from the shelter.
Attending members of
the group decided to form
an events committee to plan
fundraising activities so the
goals of the organization can
be met.
"The first big item to be
donated to the shelter will be
a surgical table. "The table
is heated, which helps the
animal stay warm during
surgery," noted Lois Mar-
low, shelter manager. The
cost of the table was about
$2,700 and Marlow will or-
der the table this week.
"Money is coming from
everywhere," Caro noted.
"It is slow, but we are only
three months old." Those
wishing to join as members
should send a check for $10
(or any other amount) to
Friends of Walton County
Animal Control, 449 Wood
Beach Drive, Santa Rosa
Beach, FL 32459.
Bard noted a website for
the group is under develop-
ment and the website will
be able to list the needs of
the shelter as well as keep
the public updated on the
activities of the group.

On Dec. 8 members of

day luncheon and gift auc-
tion. In a recent communi-
cation to the club Christmas
Charities Chair, Irene Sop-
er, said, "What a fabulous
meeting! Due to your over-
whelming generosity, we
raised $5,500 at this year's

which represents an 18-per-
cent increase over last
year. This is truly outstand-
ing especially during these
difficult economic times.
Because of you, $5,500 in
Wal-Mart gift cards are be-
ing given to 18 families with
a total of 33 children all
who will undoubtedly enjoy
a brighter Christmas sea-
son."
She went on to say, Sev-
enty members and guests
contributed to the auction
as well as those who made
a donation before the lun-
cheon. There were over 100
gifts and 15 beautifully dec-
orated trees for auction. The
ladies of Point Washington
Methodist Church outdid
themselves in preparing a
beautiful meal and were
even able to join in on the
festivities afterwards." Sop-
er said that the 18 fami-
lies were provided by vari-
ous organizations such as
Sacred Heart Hospital Mis-
sion Services, CVHN, St
Vincent DePaul Society and
Canaan Recovery Founda-
tion's Path of Grace Home.
In addition a gift card was

2024 and was founded Dec.
29, 1824. Guests should ar-
rive in time for the sunset
toast around 4:41 p.m.

will be 200 years old in 2024,
it will be 2025 when Wash-
ington County is 200 years
old, 2113 for Bay County to
be 200 years old, and 2115
for Okaloosa County to be
200 years old.

Non-Tea Party, a fun


Christmas luncheon


On Dec. 16, about 30
Walton County Democratic
Women's Club members and
guests adorned with hats
and gloves from the past
,(and from other sources) ar-
rived at Betty Cork's festive
home for a "Non-Tea Party"
party. In contrast to the cur-
rent Tea Party movement,
the meeting was not about
protesting the government,
but about celebrating the
holiday season and the club's
past accomplishments.
A prize for the "best hat"
was awarded to always
stylish Shelia Grimes, who
thanked the group for sup-
porting her recent campaign


for Supervisor of Elections
and hinted this would not be
her last foray into politics. "I
thank those of you who vot-
ed for me and to those who
didn't . .get to know me
better so you'll vote for me
in the next election."

Some serious business
was conducted. New offi-
cers for the next two years
were elected with current
President Mary Wolfe ac-
cepting another term, as did
Secretary Alice Butela and
Treasurer Sylvia Alf. Karen
McGee was elected as vice
president in charge of pro-
grams and projects, and


Sheila Wachsman accepted
the post of vice president
in charge of membership.
Grace Marse, Marilyn Coe,
and Susie Arnold will serve
as regional representatives
for the local club. Outgoing
Membership Chair John-
nie Riley-White was given
a round of applause for her
work, and current President
Mary Wolfe was thanked
for her untiring efforts to
grow the club. "We're lucky
to have her inspiration and
leadership -- especially in
an election year when it's
not easy to be a Democrat,"
said member Sharon Hazle-
ton.

had choked de Bown with
his hands and with a radio
power cord.

Movie review


Sail on series: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader


By BRUCE COLLIER
Michael Apted's The
Chronicles of Narnia: The
Voyage of the Dawn Treader
boasts three screenwriter/
adaptors of C.S. Lewis'
original book. Most people
know that Lewis wrote a se-
ries of books for children on
the land of Narnia, and that
the stories are allegories of
Christian doctrine. Those
who find this off-putting
can choose to enjoy them
as straight-up fantasy, less
complicated and violent than
Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
Lewis, an Oxford scholar,
historian and linguist, filled
his books with elements of


Greek and Nordic myths,
arguing that those cultures
have core stories and val-
ues that all parallel bibli-
cal accounts, that they bear
themes common to those of
Christianity, and serve as
precursors to it. Freedom
and slavery, selfishness and
sacrifice, fellowships and
questing figure heavily in
the Narnia tales. Probably
the most common theme of
all is that of free will. Every
character is, at some point,
presented with a choice, and
with the consequences of it.
That said, the Narnia
books (most, at least) seem
tailor-made for filming.


As with the first two mov-
ies in the series, Voyage of
the Dawn Treader is filled
with opportunities for spec-
tacular special effects. The
characters range from hu-
man children to goat-legged
fauns, a towering Minotaur,
and a talking mouse with
rapier and plumed hat. The
Dawn Treader looks like a
Renaissance galleon, the
kind that carried explorers
and merchant princes to ex-
otic ports.
Central characters are
two of the four Pevensie chil-
dren from the first two in-
stallments Lucy (Georgie
Henley) and Edmund (Skan-
dar Keynes). Older siblings
Peter and Susan are briefly
shown, but play no part in


the main story. Also return-
ing are the swashbuckling
noble-mouse Reepicheep
and Asian the lion, voiced
by Liam Neeson. Asian rep-
resents the risen Christ and
is the moral center of all
the stories. Prince Caspian
(now a king) is back, played
by Ben Barnes. There's a
newcomer, the Pevensies'
irritating cousin Eustace
Scrubb (Will Poulter), who
gets a crash course in Nar-
nian culture and who ap-
pears to be sequel-bound.
As with the other films
so far made, Voyage of the
Dawn Treader is about a
land in trouble, people in
captivity, and evil on the
loose. The heroes face the
hardest of all challenges -


resisting their own tempta-
tions. Apted keeps the ac-
tion going, from the moment
the children are literally
washed into Narnian waters
by a wall painting all the
way to the end, where evil is
- at least temporarily over-
come. There's fighting, but
no guts and gore, and aside
from a nasty-looking sea ser-
pent, most of the creatures
are fairly child-friendly.
With all these special effects
flying around, acting might
have taken a back burner,
but the performances are all
uniformly good. Like Harry
Potter and his schoolmates,
the Pevensies have grown
up with the series.
This would not be the best
Narnia film to start with,


since much of the ground-
work and character estab-
lishment has been done in
the first two: The Lion the
Witch and the Wardrobe
and Prince Caspian, and
without them it would be
easy to get lost. It is plainly
part of a series. The film has
a certain inevitability about
it one never really gets the
sense that good is not going
to win out, at least general-
ly. Rather, the suspense lies
in how each character's own
personal struggle will turn
out.
Those pesky moral choic-
es. Christian or non-Chris-
tian, there are worse teach-
ing aids for young minds
than movies like this, or the
books that inspired them.


NEWLY NAMED ECAR Board-of Directors.

preciation to Capt. Cliff Atwell of Southern Star Dolphin
Cruises.


Witon County SnDowbird X

When husband and wife duo Dee and Sharon MacLaren
make the annual winter pilgrimage from Ithaca, Mich.,
which they have been doing for nine years, they look for-
ward to the lively monthly general meetings sponsored by
the Walton County Snowbirds. Dee also lifts his voice in
song for the club's much prized warblers, the Snowbird
Singers. Their enthusiasm gets no argument from John and
Liz Laurie of New Hamburg, Ontario, seven-year snowbird
veterans, who add golf and bowling to their list of activities.
Neither couple was disappointed when they attended the
first general meeting of the season.
Taking center stage was club president Nancy Gehrke,
who warmed the crowd with a combination of humorous
anecdotes and goodness of spirit. Before turning the mi-
crophone over to Pattie Hurley who announced the door
prize winners, she splashed accolades generously on the
club's numerous volunteers and the businesses that sup-
port the club with generous donations of door prizes. Win-
ners announced by Patti Hurley carried away certificates
for golf outings at the area's finest courses, dinners at up-
scale restaurants, and discount coupons by the score. For
entertainment, the audience was treated to Jabbo on the
keyboard, Shannon Wallace on the Guitar and Ike Barkley
on the saxophone. In jam session style, the trio dazzled the
audience with blues classics including the iconic Kansas
City and BB King's Merry Christmas Baby vocalized by Ike
Barkley. One departing attendee was overheard saying,
"General Meetings rock!"
Those who missed the meeting won't have long to wait
for the next one which is scheduled for 10 a.m. Jan. 12 at
Destin Life Center Building of the Destin United Method-
ist Church located at 200 Beach Drive in Destin. The club
is looking forward to a return engagement of the Bourbon
Street entertainment brothers, Ronnie and Ernest "Fly"
Dents.
When Santa Claus heard the Walton County Snowbirds
were planning another Christmas Dinner, he gave the elves
a well-deserved day off because snowbirds, according to
Santa, "know how to make merry without any help from
them." He correctly anticipated the pouring of high spir-
ited snowbirds into the Embassy Suites on Old 98, arms
laden with generous food donations for a food drive and
plenty of presents for one another. Attired in holiday ap-
parel, the revelers exchanged gifts and dined on the best
offerings of the Embassy Suites kitchen. Co-Chairs Nancy
Gehrke and Art Sachse led the frolickers through an eve-
ning of uninterrupted merriment. They did not neglect to
comment on the need for thinking of others less fortunate
and then commended the snowbirds for demonstrating a
giving Christmas spirit with a generous contribution (av-
eraging two pounds per party-goer) of food to Caring and
Sharing in south Walton County.
The club will welcome 2011 and hundreds of new and re-
turning snowbirds on Monday, Jan. 3 when Barbara Becker
and a staff of fellow volunteers will stand ready to register
them as fully fledged members of the Walton County Snow-
birds. New arrivals may expect a warm welcome from rep-
resentatives of more than 35 planned activities when they
gather at Faith Assembly Fellowship Hall located at 306
South Geronimo Street in Miramar Beach. It isn't merely
"activity" that drives membership in the Walton County
Snowbirds, it's fellowship and a chance to make a differ-
ence through voluntarism.
Bulletins: Singles will gather on Jan. 8 for a welcome
cocktail party at Ariel Dunes II, #1202. Call 424-5997 for
details. Golfers: The Tuesday and Thursday golf leagues
are filling in slots for one of the best golfing deals anywhere.
Cost is $80 bucks eight weeks is a deal hard to beat. Sign
up Jan. 3 at member registration. Butch Niver has lined up
a golf scramble for Jan. 14 at Bluewater Bay. Call him at
837-7334 for details. Lot of play dates coming up too! Take
your pick of these:
Dec. 27, Jan. 9, and Jan. 13 Emerald Bay 837-5197

ECAR Installs 2011 Board of Directors


On Saturday, Dec. 11, the
Emerald Coast Association
of Realtors (ECAR) ushered
in the new year by install-
ing the 2011 Board of Direc-
tors. The night began by
thanking those who served
in 2010 for their service and
dedication and ended with
the installation of the 2011
ECAR Board of Directors.
Sherri Meadows, 2010
Florida Realtors Secretary,
installed the incoming 2011
Board of Directors. She re-
minded them that they pro-
vide the voice for the real
estate industry and must
act always for the good. of
the members and the pub-
lic they serve. The fpllow-
ing officers and directors
were installed: Jean Floyd,
President; Judi Rutland,
President-Elect; Jan Hooks,
Vice President; Penny Er-
icksen, Treasurer; Dale Pe-
terson, Assistant Treasurer;
Directors: Tom Miesen, Jan-
ice Busovne, Jan Huyser,
Frank Brooks, Robbie Fenn,
Jamie Huggins, Bob Hud-
gens, Lisa Norton, Donna
Miller, Cathy Alley, Sally
Merrifield, Scott Provow,
Kelly Klein, Jeannie Wilson,
and Mary Anne Windes.
Incoming President Jean
Floyd capped off the night
with a heartfelt speech re-
minding Realtors to be proud
of their profession. Floyd
asked that they always re-
member that Realtors make
a difference in the lives
of their customers and the
community. She reminded
Realtors of their accomplish-
ments in 2010 defeating
Amendment 4, influencing
Kenneth Feinberg's view
on the damage done to real
estate professionals during
the oil spill, and support-
ing local charities through
donations and community
service. Floyd's overwhelm-
ing message for Realtors is
to stand strong and look for-
ward to all that can be ac-
complished in 2011.
Mary Anne Windes, 2010
president, took the opportu-
nity to recognize those Re-
altor members who served
as a committee chairper-
son and the winners of the
coveted Realtor of the Year
Award. The Realtor of the
Year selection is not based
on sales but on their service
to the Association and com-
munity. Chapter winners
are selected by a committee
of Realtors, and from those
chapter winners, an overall
winner is chosen.
The surprise of the night
came as Debbie Lewis, 2009
Realtor of the Year an-
nounced President Mary
Anne Windes was the win-
ner for 2010. The crowd
exploded in applause and
came to its feet to honor the
outgoing president for her
year of service. The 2010
chapter Realtor of the Year


winners
Windes,
nopoli,


are Mary Anne
Destin; Dino Si-
Crestview; Gloria


Frazier, Fort Walton Beach;

THE 2010 REALTOR OF THE YEAR WINNERS.


SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


Depending on your zip
code, when this newspaper
is in your hands, Christmas
will either be two or three
days away. It happens every
year just like clockwork and
every year the "business" of
Christmas is an economic
indicator of this nation's re-
tail health.
We all know, I guess, that
the gift giving aspect of the
celebration of the birth of a
prophet/savior came about
because of the gifts of the
magi, which were not extrav-
agant in nature. Perhaps
the gold was pricey even
then, but the frankincense
and myrrh were downright
homey in comparison to
what the average gift giver
spends these days.
Many folks get complete-
ly stressed out over the cus-
tom of gift giving and wind
up exhausted when the big
day finally arrives. About
30 years ago I stopped do-
ing Christmas because I
didn't enjoy the pressure,
the crowds, or, to be honest,
my return on investment.
I would spend a good deal
of time thinking of the per-
fect gift for a family mem-
ber, only to be rewarded by
something they found on
sale and thought, "Hey it's
a good enough gift." Giving
a crock-pot to someone who
doesn't cook much is not the
same as giving beautiful
stationary to someone who
loves to write letters. Pet-
ty? Maybe, but the feelings
were real and they rankled.
So I stopped and instead


concentrated on the birth-
days of my family members,
which had the advantage of
spreading the expenditures
out all through the year
and I found myself enjoying
the gift-giving process once
again.
My brother loves every-
thing about Christmas. He
and I shared a home for
about 10 years and dur-
ing that period, he got me
revved up about Christmas
a little bit, but never to the
extent I had been. Finally, I
decided the best thing to do
was to give some money to
charity and instead concen-
trate on the other aspects
of the holiday that I loved-
namely the cards, the lights
and the decorating of a sweet
smelling tree. For me, fake
trees are exactly that and I
had no intention of putting
my gorgeous ornaments on
anything fake. Last year
I even eliminated the tree
and gave all my ornaments
to my brother and I visit
them at his house and take
a great big sniff of the pine-
scented air and look at all
the gorgeous decorations.
Christmas cards are the
one time of the year when I
hear from far-flung friends
and shirttail cousins and we
catch up a bit on what we
are all doing. I try to write
a bit on each card and one
of these years I'm going to
write a tongue-in-cheek
Christmas letter about all
the things I failed to accom-
plish over the past year as a
counterpoint to those brag-

garts who send two-page
newsletters about the fabu-
lous places they have been
and all the wonderful mile-
stones they have reached as
a family. I groan when one
of those falls out of a card.
My immediate family
is all at an age where our
needs cannot be purchased
at any store. What I want is
a less hate-filled world and
one in which everyone is
willing to do anything they
can to help out a neighbor, a
stranger in distress, or care
for those who can't care for
themselves, be it a homeless
domestic animal or a soli-
tary senior who has outlived
family and contemporaries.
If we can do this with joy in
our hearts, we live up to the
expectations of the prophet/
savior born so long ago in a
chilly manger.
Many blessings to all of
you this Christmas

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2010


There have been many
names for him, but all have
him looking like he was in
his 80s and was born with a
white beard. Santa Claus
has seen himself transform
into a man who was fleeing
from a prison, to a red-
suited man who has an
entire month of build-up,
ushering him in on the "big
day.
....-...............-------------------
As early as 1773 the
name appeared in the
American press as "St. A
Claus," but it was author
Washington Irving who
gave Americans their first
detailed information about
the Dutch version of Saint
Nicholas. In his History of
New York, published in
1809 under the pseudonym
Diedrich Knickerbocker,
Irving described the arrival
of the saint on horseback
each Eve of Saint Nicholas.
This Dutch-American
Saint Nick achieved his
fully Americanized form in
1823 in the poem A Visit
From Saint Nicholas more
commonly known as The
Night Before Christmas by
Clement Clarke Moore. He
included such details as the
names of the reindeer;
Santa Claus's laughs,
winks, and nods; and the
method by which Saint
Nicholas, referred to as an
elf, returns up the chimney.
The American image of
Santa Claus was further
elaborated by illustrator
Thomas Nast, who depicted
a jolly Santa for Christmas
issues of Harper's magazine
from the 1860s to the
1880s. He added such
details as Santa's workshop
at the North Pole and
Santa's list of the good and
bad children of the world.
A human-sized version
of Santa Claus, rather than
the elf of Moore's poem, was
depicted in a series of
illustrations for Coca-Cola
advertisements introduced
in 1931 that introduced and
made the red Santa suits
an icon. In modern versions
of the Santa Claus legend,


only his toy-shop workers
are elves.
Rudolph, the ninth
reindeer, with a red and
shiny nose, was invented in
1939 by an advertising
writer for the Montgomery
Ward Company.
In looking for the
historical roots of Santa
Claus, one must go very
deep in the past. One
discovers that Santa Claus
as we know him is a
combination of many
different legends and
mythical creatures.
The basis for the
Christian-era Santa -Claus
is Bishop Nicholas of
Smyrna (Izmir), in what is
now Turkey. Nicholas lived
in the fourth century A.D.
He was very rich, generous,
and loving toward children.
Often he gave joy to poor
children by throwing gifts
in through their windows.
The Orthodox Church
later raised St. Nicholas, a
miracle worker, to a
position of great esteem. It
was in his honor that
Russia's oldest church, for
example, was built. For its
part, the Roman Catholic
Church honored Nicholas
as one who helped children
and the poor. St. Nicholas
became the patron saint of
children and seafarers. His
name day is Dec. 6.
In the Protestant areas
of central and northern
Germany, St. Nicholas later
became known as der.
Weinachtsmann. In
England he came to be
called Father Christmas.
St. Nicholas made his way
to the United States with
Dutch immigrants, and
began to be referred to as
Santa Claus.


In North American
poetry and illustrations,
Santa Claus, in his white
beard, red jacket and
pompom-topped cap, would
travel throughout the night
before Christmas in his
sleigh, pulled by eight
reindeer, and climb down
chimneys to leave his gifts
in stockings children set
out on the fireplace's
mantelpiece.
Children naturally
wanted to know where
Santa Claus actually came
from. Where did he live
when he wasn't delivering
presents? Those questions
gave rise to the legend that
Santa Claus lived at the
North Pole, where his
Christmas-gift workshop
was also located.
In 1925, since grazing
reindeer would not be
possible at the North Pole,
newspapers revealed that
Santa Claus in fact lived in
Finnish Lapland. "Uncle
Markus," Markus Rautio,
who hosted the popular
Children's hour on Finnish
public radio, revealed the
great secret for the first
time in 1927: Santa' Claus
lives on Lapland'$
Korvatunturi "Ear Fell."
The fell, which is
situated directly on
Finland's eastern frontier,
somewhat resembles a
hare's ears which are in
fact Santa Claus's ears,
with which he listens to
hear if the world's children
are being nice. Santa has
the assistance of a busy
group of elves, who have
quite their own history in
Scandinanvian legend.
Over the centuries,
customs from different
parts of the Northern


Hemisphere thus came
together and created the
whole world's Santa Claus -
the ageless, timeless,
deathless white-bearded
and red suited man who
gives out gifts on Christmas
and always returns to
Korvatunturi in Finnish
Lapland.
Since the 1950s, Santa
has happily sojourned at
Napapiiri, near Rovaniemi,
at times other than
Christmas, to meet children
and the young at heart. By
1985 his visits to Napapiiri
had become so regular that
he established his own
Santa Claus Office there.
He comes there every
day of the year to hear
what children want for
Christmas and to talk with
children who have arrived
from around the world.
Santa Claus Village is also
the location of Santa's main
post office, which receives
children's letters from the
four corners of the world.
The legend of Santa
Claus has had many
versions and numerous
fables, but all have the jolly
old man, one of much giving
and great kindness. Many
of the fables even say that
he is loyal to God and is
even one of his disciples
that is never referred to in
the Bible.
As Santa's big day draws
closer, maybe it could be a
great idea to gather all the
children and grandchildren
around you as you tell the
history of Santa Claus. It
would be a great way to'hot
only entertain, but to
educate.
But don't forget, that the
one true story of the birth
of Christ should be in the
forefront of all Christmas
traditions and storytelling.
We all know that without
his birth, none of this would
ever had happened and
because of him, many of our
traditions are rooted deeply
in not just fable and
folklore, but in real-life
history that has helped
shape our lives for more
than 2,000 years.


THE 2011 SEABREEZE JAZZ FESTIVAL returns to

Library Books of the Week


By LE4H STRATMANN

Three quite diverse books
are up for discussion this
time. From lame to hilari-
ous, each offers a bit of di-
version nonetheless.
Lauren Weisberger fol-
lowed up The Devil Wears
Prada with Everyone Worth
Knowing, which is almost a
formulaic repeat of much of
the former book. In it, we are
introduced to Bettina Robin-
son, commonly called Bette,
the daughter of two socially
conscious 1960s era people
who are vegetarians and
still fighting the good fight
and who had their daugh-
ter writing strongly worded
letters to Congress in high
*school. They are somewhat
disappointed when she ac-
cepts a job at a giant bank-
ing concern after graduation
.from college instead of tak-
ing a job with a non-profit
organization.
Bette has been toiling too
many hours a week for more
than four years under a boss
who is a buffoon. She finally
reaches her gag limit and
quits. After lolling around
for several months, she
lands a job with a big public
relations firm that plans par-
ties for business clients and
whose employees are tasked
with getting the names of
Clients into the columns.
jHer uncle, a long-term syn-


dicated columnist helps her
find the job and again she
disappoints her parents who
don't see this as a step up.
Essentially her job is to see
and be seen at all the trendy
New York City clubs. Bette
is also hopelessly addicted
to romance novels
The books offers some
insights into the machina-
tions of product-dr;-. en par-
ties and public relations,
the realities of the gossip
business, and of course a
couple of romantic complica-
tions for Bette. This is a fine
mindless diversion to listen
to when driving, which is
how I "read" it, but I fear I
would have been somewhat
bored trying to read it the
more conventional way.
A second book I heard on
tape was a collection of 12
short stories by T.C. Boyle
entitled Tooth & Claw.
To say the general theme
of these stories is dark is
something of an understate-
ment. Most are unsettling in
one way or another, ending
abruptly and often without
a satisfactory conclusion.
Many involve the excesses
of alcohol and other drugs
and I can only remember
one that was somewhat up-
lifting.
This was my first intro-
duction to this author and
I may try to read one of
his novels to see if he has


a lighter touch. I did listen
to all of the dozen stories,
but only because I kept hop-
ing for something a little
more lighthearted. If you
are overly happy, check out
this book or tape and it will
immediately level your atti-
tude to a lower register.
Carl Hiaasen has long
been a favorite of mine. This
south Florida native has no
love for the overdevelopment
and ecological decimation of
his state and it is a common
theme in his many novels.
In Star Island, Hiaas-
en's-latest book, we are in-
troduced to Cherry Pye, a
spoiled singer with no talent
who represents everything
wrong with modern celeb-
rity. Through the machina-
tions of her parents, a team
of PR people, and a ruthless
producer, Cherry has man-
aged to score a number of hit
records, thus amassing piles
of money, which supports
her entire family. Cherry
overdoses frequently and is
rushed to the hospital so of-
ten, her parents have hired
a double to divert the pa-
parazzi and be seen around
town as the real Cherry is
rushed to this hospital and
off to rehab, time and time
again.
Meanwhile photographer
Claude Abbott, a corpulent
stalker with a telephoto
lens who "sweats like a con-


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2010


stipated sumo wrestler,"
is obsessed with getting as
many photos of Cherry as
possible, as he is convinced
she will soon flame out and
overdose, making his im-
ages quite valuable on the
open market.
When Ann DeLuisa has
a few days off and decides
to drive to Key West from
Miami, she has an automo-
bile accident and is rescued
by Skink, the eco-warrior
ex-governor of Florida who


wreaks havoc on developers
whenever possible. Read-
ers familiar with Hiaasen's
work will remember this
memorable and hilarious
character.
While some of the char-
acters are retreads, most
are not and Hiaasen casts a
critical eye on tabloid jour-
nalism, development, and
the price of fame in today's
society. That one of the sing-
er's bodyguards has a face
ravaged from a bad chemi-


cal peel and an arm trun-
cated by a barracuda and
sporting a prosthesis with
a weed-whacker on the end
of it, gives you an indication
of the twisted nature of this
author's thoughts. This is a
quick and funny read.
All titles discussed here
are available in the Walton
County Library System.

SEAW ALLS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


hearing held by the legisla-
tion delegation in Walton
County, beachfront hom-
eowner Emmett Hildreth,
in the company of a group
of other seawall owners,
presented a bill that, if ap-
proved, would remove the
requirement of a state per-
mit for coastal armoring
constructed following Hurri-
cane Dennis, between July 1
and April 30, 2005. The pro-
pos'd legislation is termed a
local bill because it applies
to one specific area.
Hildreth told the delega-
tion, which included Brad
Drake (R-Eucheeanna),
Marti Coley (R-Marianna),
Don Gaetz (R-Niceville), and
Greg Evers (R-Baker), that
approximately 190 proper-
ties were involved. He esti-
mated that there were ap-
proximately 10,000 people
that the legislation would
"materially affect."
Since paying their fees to
obtain state armoring per-
mits, the property owners
have encountered "a nigh-
mare stalemale," Hildreth
complained, adding "the
Florida DEP is sitting on
the permits."
S"If you cannot get a per-
mit, you cannot sell your
property," Hildreth told the
legislators. He also contend-
ed that property values had
fallen as a result of the hom-
eowners' inability to obtain
state armoring permits.
"We're just asking you
to do what is right, what is
fair." Hildreth urged. He
read the bill language, and
the seawall owners in at-
tendance broke out in ap-
plause as he concluded his
remarks.
Gaetz quickly made a
motion for the local bill to
be filed in the legislature.
Evers seconded the motion.
The meeting was then
opened up for public com-
ment on both sides of the is-
sue.
South Walton County
resident Jacquee Markel,
the first person to speak,
expressed her opposition to
the bill. Markel found it to
be "fundamentally wrong"
to take decisions on the sea-
walls out of the normal re-
view process underway with
DEP. She called the filing
of the bill "bad policy" and
"a bad precedent." She told
the legislators that citizens
rely on DEP to ensure that
what is built on the beach
complies with state regu-
lations. It was her opinion
that the walls found to be in
compliance should remain
and that the ones not meet-
ing state standards should


come down.
Drake, serving as delega-
tion chair, then noted that
Walton County is a party of
interest in connection with
the legislation. He called
upon Gerry Demers for his
comments. Demers is cur-
rently assistant county ad-
ministrator.
Demers noted that he
was serving with the Wal-
ton County Building De-
partment at the time of
"the seawall incident." He
recalled that the building
department had issued the
emergency armoring per-
mits, making it clear to
permittees that "these were
temporary walls." This was
also stated in a brochure
provided to the people ob-
taining permits, he added.
Demers however noted
that he wduld like to see the
situation with the seawalls
resolved. He suggested re-
moving "roadblocks" to per-
mitting now posed by state
statutory language. The lan-
guage sets several require-
ments in order for a seawall
to be permitted, including
proper siting, protection of
an eligible structure, and
the existence of vulnerabil-
ity on the property, Dem-
ers explained. He suggested
the removal of some or all
of these requirements in
order for existing post-Den-
nis seawalls to be permit-
ted. Another "roadblock," a
federal beach habitat issue
raised by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (USFWS),
is close to being resolved
with the Habitat Conserva-
tion Plan (HCP) close to be-
ing approved by the county,
Demers noted.
Once permitted, the sea-
walls could then be moni-
tored for impacts, Demers
concluded.
"We do seriously want to
get this issue worked out,"
said Walton County Envi-
ronmental Manager Billy
McKee.
McKee spoke of the near-
ly-completed Walton Coun-
ty Habitat Conservation
Plan that the county had
initiated as the result of an
intergovernmental agree-
ment between the county,
USFWS, DEP, and Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC).
The agreement was entered
into to resolve the issue of
"take" or harm to federally-
protected wildlife raised by
USFWS in connection with
the county's action of issu-
ing the post-Dennis tempo-
rary armoring permits. The
USFWS take issue resulted
in a hold on the issuance


of state armoring permits
by DEP as the county has
worked to comply with the
conditions of the intergov-
ernmental agreement, in-
cluding an application for a
federal Incidental Take Per-
mit (ITP) and the HCP.
McKee explained that
the federal regulators' posi-
tion has been that the areas
in the vicinity of the armor-
ing are habitat for federally-
protected wildlife. "We are
subject to their laws," he
said.
McKee explained that
the process the county is
involved in with the fed-
eral regulators, including
the ITP application and the
HCP, will have the benefit
of addressing take issues
in the future in connection
with the emergency permit-
ting of coastal armoring.
McKee suggested taking
a look by the legislature at
exempting some of the sea-
wall properties from some of
the criteria of the state re-
quirements in cases where
armoring structures are not
causing negative impacts to
the surrounding environ-
ment. He noted, however,
that among the different
factors to be considered in
the matter is that Walton
County has a coastal pro-
tection zone along the gulf
where structures are not al-
lowed to cause erosion to the
dune system.
McKee added that, al-
though supplemental fund-
ing sources are being identi-
fied, participation of seawall
owners with the county's
HCP and payment of a per-
linear-foot seawall fee by
these owners would be im-
portant in providing finan-
cial support for the HCP
program.
Participation in the HCP
would enable the property
owners to use the HCP to
fulfill requirements in con-
nection with their state ar-
moring permit applications.
There has been concern that
eliminating the require-
ment for a state armoring
permit for them through the
proposed legislation would
remove the motivation for
seawall owners to partici-
pate in and help fund the
HCP.
"I'd hate to sit here and
tell folks that we didn't plan
for the future," McKee said.
Gaetz told McKee that,
while the legislators are
interested in the county's
plans for the future, "it's
been four-and-a-half years"
that these property owners
have been waiting for a res-
olution to their situation.


Gaetz asked McKee to
clarify whether the county
would support or oppose the
local bill.
McKee responded that he
thought the county would
not be in agreement with
the bill as currently written-
--but would possibly not op-
pose the measure if it were
modified in order to provide
for the needs of the future.
A number of people had
filled out cards to address
the delegation, but follow-
ing McKee's remarks, only
20 minutes remained before
time for the legislators to
consider a decision on filing
the bill and depart for their
next appointment in an-
other county. Drake allotted
one minute for each person
to provide their input, call-
ing the names one by one of
people wanting to speak and
having them come to the
microphone. The time limit
was not strictly enforced.
Seawall owners Ed and
Carolyn Latham spoke in
support of the bill and urged
the legislators to pursue it.
Ed Latham highlighted the
hundreds of thousands of
dollars that property owners
had paid to install the walls
and predicted substantial'
damage to beach areas if
removal of the walls were to
be required.
Local residents Rich-
ard and Alice Butela spoke
against "a blanket approval
of these seawalls." Richard
Butela observed that some
property owners had done
a "good job" with their sea-
walls while others had done
a "shoddy job." "They're not
all created equal." he said.
Blue Mountain Beach
resident Richard Fowlkes
commented that, although
he supported the beach-
front property owners' right
to protect their property, it
would be inappropriate to
make a change in the law to
"make it OK" for people who
did not follow the law.
"I would urge you to let
it run its course," he said
of the permitting proce-
dure for the seawalls. Fowl-
kes noted that it had been
just three-and-a-half years
since the intergovernmen-
tal agreement was final-
ized to address the habitat
issues raised by the federal
regulators in connection
with the county's issuance
of the post-Dennis permits
for temporary armoring. He
charged that obstructionism
by beachfront property own-
ers to the implementation
of elements of the intergov-
ernmental agreement had
slowed progress with the
county's efforts to comply
and, as a result, with the
permitting process for the
armoring.
Fowlkes continued, stat-
ing that much of the current


problem stems from the fact
that the permits issued by
the county after Hurricane
Dennis were for temporary
armoring and "some people
just didn't build temporary
seawalls." He also spoke of
improper siting of some of
the walls, which were con-
structed entending onto
public property.
Fowkles also expressed
concern that a substantial
part of the funding for the
county's HCP would "go
away" if the bill, as written,
were to be passed by the
legislature, due to seawall
owners opting not to partic-
pate in the HCP. Funding of
the HCP in full would then
fall to county taxpayers as a
whole, he warned.
Fowlkes called for the lo-
cal bill," if there is one," to
be written to conform with
the county's HCP program
and support the program.
Fowlkes' remarks .had
run relatively long. He con-
cluded after jeering and
calls for him to sit down by
part of the gathering.
Several attorneys repre-
senting beachfront property
owners and homeowners' as-
sociations addressed the rep-
resentatives. One of those,
Scott Shirley, told the del-
egation that it is important
to the people he represents
to get the bill filed. He was
hopeful for a compromise on
the legislation through co-
operation between the prop-
erty owners, the county and
the regulatory authorities.
Attorney John Cottle,
representing five associa-
tions composed of beach-
front condominium owners,
emphasized that his clients
had acted carefully after
Hurricane Dennis, hiring
"expensive experts" to eval-
uate options for correcting
impacts to their property.
"Their boards deliberated
and made responsible deci-
sions about what needed to
be done," he explained. Re-
garding the statements that
the county permits had been
for temporary walls, Cottle
commented that it would
have been impossible to
stop multistory condomini-
ums from falling into the
gulf by means of construct-
ing temporary walls. He re-
minded the legislators that
hundreds of thousands had
been spent for the walls by
the property owners. "We
ask you to file the bill," Cot-
tle concluded.
"We need a clean way
out of this process," said at-
torney Tom Tomasello, who
also urged for filing of the
bill. He conveyed the will-
ingness of the beachfront
property owners he repre-
sents to work with DEP and
the county to "get a bill we
all can support."
Homeowner association


representative Bill Hag-
meier's comments were less
positive. "I would just like
to have protection from the
regulators," he told the leg-
islators. He added that he
hoped they would support
the bill "and at least get
DEP off our back."
With time having come for
a decision, public comment
was closed, with a number
of people who had wanted
to address the delegation
shut out from speaking. At
one point, South Walton
Turtle Watch Director Sha-
ron Maxwell had stood up,
raised her hand and asked
to speak, but she had been
told she was out of order
and denied the opportunity
to address the legislators.
Coley observed that the
topic of the bill was "a very
emotional, passionate issue
on both sides." She said she
intended to vote to file the
bill, with the understanding
that other provisions could
be added.
"DEP is not always right,"
Gaetz asserted. He said he
had been encouraged by the
discussion and was in fa-
vor of filing the bill, which
would start in the House of
Representatives.
Drake concurred that he
was in favor of filing the bill
as a result of the discussion
and the statements from the
parties' about their willing-
ness to reach a compromise
with the legislation.
Evers observed that in
order for the legislation to
move forward, it would be
necessary for the legislators
to vote to do so that day. He
told attendees that "we don't
know" what the bill will look
like in its final form, which
might be quite different
from its current language.
"It's like making hog's
head cheese, you don't know
what all goes into it," Evers
said.
The question was called,
with the result being four
"ayes" for filing the legisla-
tion. As a result, the bill is to
be filed when the legislative
session begins in March.
Among other business
at the delegation meeting,
prior to the discussion of the
armoring bill, at the request
of Anita Page of the South
Walton Community Coun-
cil, Gaetz agreed to ask DEP
to request BP to fund addi-
tional and more aggressive
sampling for oil and disper-
sant at local areas known to
be "hot spots" along the gulf
and also in the Choctaw-
hatchee Bay.

Following the meeting,
Walton County Administra-
tor Gerry Demers expressed
willingness to work with all
parties involved in the sea-
wall legislation to resolve
differences with the bill.

The Fort Walton Beach
Boeing Employee Founda-
tion has awarded a grant of
$3,400 to Children In Cri-
sis Inc. (CIC) to purchase
computer and educational
equipment for at risk chil-
dren living at the Children's
Neighborhood.
The grant application
was approved by the local
community Boeing Employ-
ee Foundation. This is the
third grant from the Foun-
dation to help with CIC edu-
cational programs.
Ken Hair, CIC Executive
Director commented, "The
donation was truly a bless-
ing and came at a perfect
time in our development of
the Children's Neighbor-
hood. CIC provides a home
to about 75 children every
year and most are behind
in school. This grant will be
an enormous help with our
tutoring and educational
programs to get our children


back on track. Since open-
ing in 2008, all of our chil-
dren have progress to the
next grade."
CIC is a non-profit, 501(c)
(3), charity of caring people
that are passionate about
helping with the severe
shortage of foster homes in
our community. The Chil-
dren's Neighborhood pro-
vides an emergency shelter
for children that are removed
from an unsafe environment
on short notice and homes
to help with the foster home
shortage. Since the open-
ing, 160 children have been
given a home, food, clothing
and love. Additionally, 100
percent of our brother and
sister family sibling groups
have been kept together.

For additional informa-
tion on CIC or ways to sup-
port the CIC vision, visit

On display now is a spe-
cial collection of violins that
served a canvases for 26 art-
ists.
"Sinfonia ArtStrings: A
Painted Violin Exhibit" is
open for viewing by the pub-
lic until April 30. The ex-
hibit opened on Nov. 13 at
the ArtStrings storefront at
Grand Boulevard.
The participating artists
were each presented with an
unfinished violin on which
to work their magic, using
the medium of their choice.
The result is a celebration of
creativity.
Gale Culling, ArtStrings
chair, explained that the
names of most of the artists
will be familiar to residents,
since they are from the local
area. Richard Arriaga, Don-
na Burgess, Justin Gaffrey,
Susan Lucas, and Patrick
Reynolds are among them.
However, regional, nation-
al, and international artists
are represented. One of the
violins is the work of the re-
nowned WYLAND, Culling
noted.
The violins are to be auc-
tioned off on Feb. 4 at Sinfo-
nia's Gala Event, "Celebrat-
ing Five Year of Sinfonia,"
and a reception is planned
for the violins' new owners
at the conclusion of the ex-
hibit.
Presenting sponsors for
ArtStrings are Grand Bou-
levard Town Center and the
Cultural Arts Association.
Northlight Yacht Club and

Platinum Sponsors.

Angels all adopted, financial


issues discussed at SWFD


By LEAH STRATMANN

The lobby of the South
Walton Fire District's
(SWFD) offices at 911 North
CR-393 is chock full of bi-
cycles and packages of all
shapes and sizes wrapped
in festive holiday paper and
reflecting the generosity of
Walton County citizens who
adopted all the angels on
the Angel Tree with names
of needy children supplied
by Caring and Sharing of
North Walton.
"This is the ninth year
we have participated in this
project," Chief Rick Talbert
said, "and the gifts are still
coming in."
In other news the chief
reported SWFD was award-
ed a $110,000 grant to re-
place heart monitors. "We
ere the only fire department
in Florida to be granted a
Fire Act Award in the first
round," Talbert noted.
Commissioner Jack Abit
reported the audit com-
mittee met and discussed
procedures for writing and
signing checks. Guidelines
currently call for two com-
missioners to sign checks
and Abit said commission-
ers would also begin moni-
toring credit card expenses.
Abit said the committee
felt as if it should adopt a
"whistle blower" policy in
the unlikely event there is
someone who has something
they perceive to be wrong
and so that they may bring
it to light without fear of re-


prisal. "The chief has draft-
ed such a policy and it has
been given to the attorney
for review. The committee
will look at the policy again
in January," Abit reported.
Further Abit said, "I
think chief financial officer
Bryan Flanagan should be
a member of the audit com-
mittee and I ask the chair-
man to appoint the CFO to
the committee permanently.
Kevin Boyle of O'Sullivan
Creel has said it would be
a good idea and Flanagan's
vote is very important."
Lori Bytell, attorney for
the district, said appointing
Flanagan to the committee
is tantamount to asking him
to police himself and could
be perceived as a conflict of
interest.
During the portion of the
meeting where committees
were appointed for the com-
ing year, Jack Abit, Mike
Stange and Donna Crawford
will remain as the commit-
tee, and Flanagan will be at
all of the meetings to provide
the necessary data, but will
not be a voting member of
the committee. "This elimi-
nates any possibility of the
appearance of malfeasance
and protects financial secu-
rity," Bytell noted.
Flanagan reported on the
pension fund monies. The
policies overseeing these
funds preclude investing
any of the money in real es-
tate but Flanagan asked for
permission to invest money
in commercial real estate


in amounts not to exceed
10 percent of the fund. "We
are trying to get at least an
8-percent return on invest-
ments, Flanagan noted.
Chairman Maurice Gil-
bert noted, "Real estate is
real liquid which is one of
the negative aspects of it.
There is a higher risk in-
volved in real estate."
Flanagan was looking to
invest in commercial real es-
tate ventures and said there
were several agencies will-
ing to make presentations
to the board in January who
want to take use pension
fund investments. The pen-
sion fund currently has $14
million dollars in it.
"The plans of the pension
fund needs to be ratified by
this board," Gilbert remind-
ed members.
Mike Stange said, "Last
year the fund made 8.3 per-
cent on investments, but
the experts are saying that
may be hard to achieve in
the coming year, is that cor-
rect?" Flanagan said that
was correct.
There was no motion
made to approve the pen-
sion board to act on this
investment option, so the is-
sue died for lack of action.
Other committees ap-
pointed include the employ-
ee benefits committee com-
posed of Flanagan, Abit and
Brian Christensen.

The 2011



Seaside race is



filling up fast


Thanksgiving is the next
big event on most people's
minds, but local runners
should be thinking ahead
to next spring. The ninth
annual Seaside School Half
Marathon and 5K Run is
filling up quickly. Race or-
ganizers expect it to sell out
before the holidays.
"Our local community is
so important to us, the sup-
port they've shown the race
and the school," said Rick
Helfand, race director. "We
are thrilled that our event
is on the national radar in
the running world, but we
also hope locals will partici-
pate in large numbers. We
want to be sure they have a
chance to register before we
sell out. The race has filled
earlier each year, but we
haven't seen anything like
the registrations coming in
this fall."
The race takes place on
Sunday, March 6, 2011,
with the starting line at the
Seaside Post Office. The half
marathon begins at 7 a.m.


and the 5K at 7:30 a.m. To
register, go to the race web-
site at www.SeasideSchool-
HalfMarathon.com or pick
up a registration form at
the Seaside Neighborhood
School. The event is the
school's largest annual fund-
raiser. It brings runners,
their friends, and families,
about 7,000 people in all, to
the beaches of south Wal-
ton from all over the United
States and Canada. Race
organizers say from 7 10
percent of the participants
visit this area for the first
time, so the event is good
for marketing this destina-
tion and for fueling the local
economy.

Vera Bradley is again
the presenting sponsor of
the race, and will give a
Vera Bradley tote bag to
every runner at the finish
line. Jim 'n Nick's BarBQ
will feed runners a barbe-
cue sandwich meal after the
race, along with free bever-
ages.


ORDINANCE


eel.
One of the changes up for
consideration at the Dec. 14
hearing was the removal of
the structure requirement.
Among other proposed
changes, an additional 150
beach driving permits would
have been made available
on a yearly basis, on a first-
come, first-served applica-
tion basis, with applicants
being required to meet all
the ordinance's existing cri-
teria with the exception of
having held a permit the
previous year. There are
currently more than 725
existing beach driving per-
mits.
Among other revisions
under consideration at the
hearing were: making reg-
istered voters who were
not county property owners
eligible for permits; decreas-
ing the number of permits
available for charter boat
operators from 20 to 15; in-
creasing the yearly permit
fee from $105 to $125 to
help fund the county's Habi-
tat Conservation Plan, and
with $10 going to the county
tax collectors office, which
issues the permits; and
making temporary beach
driving permits issued by
code enforcement available
to disabled nonresidents.
Suggestions from the tax
collector's office included
making transfer of a permit
to a permit holder's family
member possible in case of a
death, and making a trans-
fer possible when there is a
divorce and the spouse who
gets the four-wheel-drive
vehicle is not the permitted.
The question was posed
whether there would be
grandfatheringg" with the
proposed 150 new permits.
Walton County Attorney
Lynn Hoshihara responded
no, that those permit hold-
ers would have to reapply
each year for a permit.
Hoshihara also explained
that grandfathered permit
holders now in the renewal
process would be able to ap-
ply for one of the 150 new
permits if they happened
to lose their permit by fail-
ing to renew by the deadline
date.
District 3 Commissioner


Larry Jones said he was
troubled thinking about 150
people "standing in line" for
a beach driving permit. He
brought up the idea of per-
haps a two-week period to
apply for the 150 new per-
mits, and then a lottery to
determine who would get a
permit.
Jones also recalled that
the commissioners' purpose
in amending the ordinance
in Jan. 2010 had been to re-
duce the number of vehicles
on the beach. He urged be-
ing careful not to expand
the number of permits too
much.
Cecilia Jones recalled
that the commissioners had
also said that they would
look at opening up beach
driving permits to addi-
tional people up to a safe
number, once they saw how
much the previous revisions
had reduced the number of
permits. Mrs. Jones said the
number being proposed was
in line of the suggestion of
1,000 or less permits made
by the sheriffs office.
"I think it's a safe, fair
number to open it up to,"
she commented.
Jones added that the
sheriffs office had promised
to step up enforcement of
beach driving regulations
on weekends.
Of 16 citizens who ad-
dressed the commissioners
on the beach driving issue
during the public comment
period, a dozen expressed
a desire to obtain a beach
driving permit and/or spoke
for expansion of the permit
program. A number of those
said they or a family mem-
ber had health problems
preventing them from walk-
ing to the beach.
Suggestions were made
for allowing more citizens to
have beach driving permits
and still limiting the num-
ber of vehicles on the beach
by issuing some permits
good only for certain days of
the week. "You go on Sun-
days, I'll go on Saturdays,"
proposed Robert Bobbit.
"I would be very happy
with a weekday permit,"
said Carolyn Jones.
Grayton Beach resident
Ann Morel was worried

great example of a true en-
semble cast. Being a large
part of a show and maintain-
ing the pacing for that show,
even while one is onstage is
not an easy task for even the
most experienced directors.
Stetler gets extra Christmas
props for this one.
Drew Brown and Anne
Marie Carroll join Stetler
in this madcap Christmas
romp. Both actors rise to the
occasion, hilariously. Both
showed clear lines drawn
between all the (and there
are many) characters they
portray, that are embedded
deep within our Christmas
special psyche. Whether it
was a Who from Whoville,
a certain top-hat wearing
snowman come to life, or an
announcer at the big float
parade that kicks off the
Christmas season, Brown,
Carroll and Stetler hit their
mark and they hit it well.
From accents to facial ex-
pressions to body language,
they bought the ticket they
are selling and the audience
gets the gift of dedicated and
talented actors doing what


they do best; being someone
or something else.
The set used was con-
structed and previously
used in the Rep's adap-
tion, by Bruce Collier, of A
Christmas Carol that was
preformed for the last two
years during the Christmas
season at Baytowne. It fit
the stage perfectly. Lights
and sound are dead-on as
well as a result of hard work
by lighting designer Bri
Weintraub, production man-
ager John Rosenberg and
stage manager John Stimac.
Carroll adds to her resume
as the costume designer for
this one and Brown served
as sound designer as well.
Every Christmas Story
Ever Told(and then some!)
much like fruitcake, could
well become a holiday tradi-
tion for our household. It's
bold, nutty, fruity, and fun,
with an underlying sub-
stance that holds all that
fun together. It's a Christ-
mas treat not to be missed.
The show will run at the
Seaside Meeting Hall The-
atre on December 21-23 and
28-30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets
are $25 and are available
online at seasiderep.org, by
phone at (850) 231-0733 or
may be purchased in person
at Amavida Coffee in Sea-
side or Rosemary Beach.
Discounted tickets are
available for Rep Members,
students, military with ID,
and for groups of six or more.

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS will be considering in the
near future an expansion of the county's beach driving per-
mit program. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


about the impact on Gray-
ton Beach of the county
adding the new beach driv-
ing permits. She suggested
raising the permit fee even
higher and using the funds
to increase patrolling of the
area.
Morel advocated property
owners being able to pass a
permit from parent to off-
spring so that families who
had long enjoyed beach driv-
ing privileges would be able
to retain them in the event
of a death.
Others spoke for return-
ing the grandfathering of
permits for people who had
lost theirs because of the re-
quirement for a residence on
their property.
Citing beach crowding
and safety concerns, one
Grayton Beach couple spoke
against expanding beach
driving in their community,
calling for no beach driving
except for people who "need
it," such as the disabled and
elderly.
Once public comment had
concluded, Pridgen first
moved to continue consider-
ation of the ordinance revi-
sions to the Jan. 11 regular


commission meeting, in or-
der to allow time to respond
and work out details in con-
nection with suggestions,
including a permit lottery,
and determine how permits
would be issued, with the
goal to "get an ordinance
that will work for every-
one."
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander commented
that she did not know if that
would leave enough time to
work out all questions and
procedures, such as wheth-
er different-colored permits
would be issued for beach
driving on different days of
the week.
Pridgen amended his mo-
tion to continue the item to
Feb. 8 in conjunction with
the regular BCC meeting on
that date, which is to begin
at 4 p.m. and take place at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex.

Information on the beach
driving ordinance and pro-
gram is available on the
Walton County Tax Collec-
tor's Web site, www.walton-
taxcollector.com, or by call-
ing (850) 892-8121.

than 200 guests attended
the black-tie optional event
in festive outfits. "You don't
have too many local black-
tie events and people seem
to really have enjoyed get-
ting dressed up for the oc-
casion," said Britt Walker,
marketing and events coor-
dinator for CVHN.
The energetic Figure 8
Band entertained with a va-
riety of music to please ev-
eryone and kept the dance
floor packed all night long.
Guests enjoyed a warm buf-
fet with a variety of fresh
mouthwatering foods to en-
joy, and sipped on cocktails,
wines and beers from the
cash bar.
A raffle was held for a
donated selection of fine
wines, with the winner tak-
ing home a case worth more
than $900. A silent auction
of a lunch with Mike and Ja-
net Huckabee raised nearly
$4,000. It was an evening to
express thanks for donors'
generosity, a night to enjoy
and a chance to contribute
to a great cause.
