Slow start at

meeting of 2011


By ASHLEYAMASON
Chuck Lawson, recently
retired State Farm agent
and now master gardener,
addressed the Walton Coun-
ty School board about finger-
printing fees for volunteers
at the Jan. 4 meeting. After
applying to be a volunteer at
the Walton Career Develop-
ment Center, Lawson was
sent to the district office to
be fingerprinted at which
time he was charged $81.25.
"Is it conducive to [charge
me]" he asked. "Does that
really give an incentive for
volunteers [to get involved
in schools]?"


Superintendent Carlene
Anderson addressed Law-
son's concerns, declaring
under the Jessica Lunsford
Act, which is Florida law,
any volunteer who will not
be in the line of sight of a
teacher the entire time he/
she is on school grounds
must have current finger-
prints on file. As for the vol-
unteer absorbing the cost,
Anderson said the district's
inability to pay the fee was
a financial infeasibility.

Habitat for

Humanity

dedicates

21st Walton

County home

By BRUCE COLLIER
A record crowd of family,
friends and well-wishers at-
tended the dedication of a
new Habitat for Humanity
home at 141 Argyle Church
Road last Saturday. New
homeowners Lowel and Ro-
berta Palmer played host
to what Habitat Executive
Director Teresa Imdieke
said was a "record" crowd.
The parking areas and lawn
were crowded with vehicles
and people there to give the
Palmers a house-warming
that left Roberta nearly
speechless with emotion.
The program consisted of
a recitation of the Litany for
Shelter, a traditional part of
the Christian-based Habitat
organization's dedication,
and a blessing on the house.
Construction coordinator
David Petrasek spoke, con-
firming that the 60-day con-
struction time for this house
was the fastest in Walton
County Habitat's history.
"It shows what support they
had," he said.
Equally remarkable was
that 100 percent of the fi-
nancing had been contrib-
uted by the residents of
Sandestin, where Roberta is
employed. Her diligence and
friendly attitude at work so
impressed the Sandestin
residents that they raised
the necessary funds them-
selves. Roberta expressed
thanks on behalf of herself
and her family in a brief
speech that had many in

questions

survey

requirement

By ASHLEYAMASON
Former planning board
member Kermit Wright re-
quested the city reconsider
the policy instated in March
2005 which requires resi-
dents to obtain a survey of
their property before add-
ing a permanent fixture to
the residence. Wright, who
planned to build a 16 x 20
foot lean-to on his garage,
reported the survey fee was
$400. Wright reviewed the
minutes of the meeting in
which the policy was adopt-
ed and stated it appeared the
policy had "no prior thought"
although the "impact on the
citizens is great."
Mayor Pro-Tempore
James Huffman addressed
Wright. "I understand your
position. [However,] we
can't issue permits based on
where people say their prop-
erty line is."
Councilman Don Harri-
son added he was in favor of
re-examining the policy and
considering general exemp-
tions. Wright took his seat
after saying, "I don't want
to break the rules, I want
to follow the rules, but the
rules need to be reasonable
for everyone."
The brief remainder of
the agenda was met with
unanimous ayes, including
the request to purchase a
van for the public works de-
partment in the amount of
$25,341 and the purchase of
a ground-penetrating radar
to detect underground pipes
in the amount of $12,100.
The interlocal agreement
between the city and Wal-
ton County to jointly op-
erate Harbeson Field was
amended by excluding the
tennis courts from the le-
gal and sketch descriptions.
City Manager Kim Kirby
received approval to seek
request for qualifications

ing consultant services and

services. The RFQs will in-

Northwest Florida Beef


Conference and Trade Show


The 26th annual North-
west Florida Beef Confer-
.ence and Trade Show will
be held on Wednesday, Feb.
9, 2011. The event will be
held at the Jackson County
Extension Service's Ag Con-
ference Center, located at
2741 Pennsylvania Avenue,
Marianna, Fla. Registra-
tion and the Trade Show
will open at 8 a.m. central
time. Registration is $5 per
person, payable at the door,
and lunch will be provided.
The Beef Conference is an
annual University of Flor-
ida Extension educational
program for beef cattle pro-


ducers in the tri-state re-
gion of Florida, Alabama,
and Georgia.
The focus of the Beef
Conference for 2011 will be
cattle herd health. Three
veterinarians will train
ranchers and their employ-
ees on emergency care, se-
lecting the right animal
health products, and over-
all management to prevent
disease. Dr. Bob Mortimer,
DVM, Colorado State Uni-
versity, will teach cattle
producers how to deal with
calving and cattle emergen-
cies. Mortimer has spent
years training veterinary


students in the area of calv-
ing management and has
a vast knowledge-base of
practical advice for ranch-
ers. Max Irsik, University of
Florida Beef Cattle Exten-
sion Veterinarian, will dis-
cuss utilizing new antibiot-
ics and vaccination products
available for use in cattle. A
local practicing veterinarian
will make the final presen-
tation on why herd health
programs fail. The program
will conclude with a panel of
the three presenting veteri-
narians for a question and
answer session with the au-
dience. Everyone who owns


or works with beef cattle
will benefit from attending
this event.

In addition to the formal
presentations, company
and agency representatives
will take part in the Trade
Show. Cattle producers can
find out about the most cur-
rent products and services
available in the region that
may benefit their opera-
tions. To RSVP attendance,

"I'm completely over-
whelmed," she said. "I had
no idea." She thanked her
friends for suggesting that
she and her husband could
be eligible for Habitat. "I
was pushed," she joked.
Health problems and other
urgencies made the building
of this home a special bless-
ing for the Palmers. Fol-
lowing the dedication, the
Palmers invited attendees
inside to tour the home and
for refreshments, but not be-
fore they took time to open a
porch full of housewarming
gifts.

Todd Ball

trial

continued

The trial of Todd Ball, ac-
cused of the 1999 killing of
his ex-wife, has been post-
poned, reportedly on motion
of the state attorney. The
trial, which would have be-
gun Jan. 12, has been con-
tinued, with a status confer-
ence set for Feb. 17. State
Attorney William Eddins
predicted that the trial may
not go forward until several
months after that date.
The defense had filed a
motion to suppress a video-
tape that was intended to be
offered by the prosecution.
The video has been sent to
an FBI lab for analysis, and
the Feb. 17 conference will
likely focus on whether the
analysis has been complet-
ed.
Ball was arrested in April
of 2009 for the alleged mur-
der of his ex-wife, Laurie
Ball, who was found dead
in 1999. Ball was reportedly
a suspect all along, but the
investigation stayed open
for 10 years before he was fi-
nally arrested. The trial has
been repeatedly continued.

Paxton thanks correctional


institutions for work assistance


By REID TUCKER
Paxton Mayor Hayward
Thomas expressed his
thanks to the Okaloosa Cor-
rectional Institute for its in-
volvement in completing the
remodeling project of the
city's Agricultural Center.


Thomas said the Walton
County Correctional Insti-
tution had originally been
planned to do the bulk of
the renovation project, but
inmates were only avail-
able to clear out the carpet
previously in place at the


Ag Center due to previous-
ly scheduled work projects
elsewhere in the county. The
Paxton Town Council there-
fore contacted the Okaloosa
Correctional Institution, a
state prison, about laying
tile inside the Ag Center.


The mayor and Council
members commended the
professionalism and work-
manship of both correctional
institutions at the Council's
last meeting, held Tuesday,
Dec. 21.

The year




of small?


By BRUCE COLLIER


The new year hasn't exactly started off with a ton of
feel-good news. A homicidal nut-case went on a shooting
spree in Arizona. This heartbreaking tragedy was swiftly
parlayed into a media forum on incendiary political rheto-
ric said rhetoric having been dutifully reported every day
of the past year by said media. Though it's been established
that the shooting suspect is not a member of any political
party found on Planet Earth, fingers are pointing and shak-
ing, as usual.
Locally, there's some reason for optimism for the com-
ing year. Last Saturday I witnessed the dedication of Wal-
ton County's '21st Habitat for Humanity home, a dwelling
made livable in record time and fully financed by friends
and well-wishers of a very deserving family. An unapolo-
getically Christian organization, Habitat has managed to
avoid the politicization that often accompanies faith-based
entities. Apparently, results talk. Habitat deserves plenty
of fanfare, but it's obvious they will still go about their
work, noticed or unnoticed, letting other men praise them,
not their own mouths, as King Solomon advised.
Speaking of results, this weekend is the 30A Songwrit-
ers Festival in south Walton County, an event I covered
last year, and one of the most successful festivals that took
place in this area in all of 2010. Granted, the Deepwater
Horizon spill was still months away when it happened, but
what impressed me was the elegant simplicity of the idea.
A group of singers and songwriters came into the area and
performed in the small clubs, bars and restaurants that
many of them started out in. Their crowd of fans followed
them around, like the Sioux after buffalo, and sampled a
variety of styles of music, up close. Every venue I went to
was packed (and it got pretty chill and rainy that weekend),
and everyone looked to be getting their money's worth. In
most of the venues, the audiences were only a few feet away
from the performers, like they were entertaining friends at
someone's house. In its old-fashioned way, it seems to have
worked.
Along the same line, the Seaside Repertory Theatre re-
leased its 2011 season of productions, with an emphasis
on more frequent small-cast shows and a decidedly fami-
ly-friendly program. I can't help but wonder whether they
were influenced by the success of the Songwriters Festival.
Reports are still coming in of tar balls being found on the
beaches, and BP claims are still being paid. I read a report
this morning suggesting that the oil spill problem is more
industry-wide than suspected, and that last summer's Gulf
spill pretty much proved that existing spill response plans
were "useless." This stuff is not front-page news anymore,
apparently, though that may change as the days grow lon-
ger and the weather warmer.
Is 2011 going to be the year of small in Walton County?
Despite the acres of developed land, resort rental property
and shops selling boutique you-name-it, is the tourist in-
dustry trying to see if less is more? Or rather, that less may
bring in more? Whether it's natural caution, or just simple
economics, it will be interesting to see how it plays out, and
pays out.

GUIDE to WASHlWGTOgt D.


Editor:
The family of Jerry (Buddy) Byrd would like to take this
opportunity to thank all family and friends for their help
and support following Jerry's accident on Sept. 17, 2010.
Also a very special "Thank You" to our local community, we
are very grateful for everything you have done to help us
through this difficult time.
Jerry has come a long way in his recovery, he still has


to do rehab in Crestview. But considering how far he has
come we have faith that he will make a full recovery.
We have watched many prayers go up and our commu-
nity come together as a family. We will never be able to
thank each of you enough for each visit, phone call, word of
hope and encouragement.

LETTE STOI 3THEEDITOR


Editor:
On Friday, Jan. 7, eight members of our local retired ed-
ucator's (WCREA) unit met at the Best Western Crossroads
Inn to judge essays from fifth grade classrooms in Walton
County.
Our state organization (FREA) sponsors a contest for
fifthgraders across the state. The essay must describe a
specific experience (or experiences) with a grandparent or
grandparent figure.
We had essays from all of the elementary schools in Wal-
ton County. A winner will be announced from each school
as well as a district winner.
This writing experience gives students an opportunity to


Florida legislators should think twice before consid-
ering an Arizona-style immigration law,. South Florida
law professor warned Monday. Not only would a Florida
law likely be struck down by federal courts, it could back-
fire on the state's tourism-based economy, Ediberto Ro-
man, an immigration-law expert at Florida International
University, told a Senate panel. "Florida's population is
much different than Arizona's," Roman said. "The economy
thrives on foreign tourists." Senate President Mike Harido-
polos, R-Merritt Island, called the first of a series of hear-
ings to look into the issue. Gov. Rick Scott pledged on the
campaign trail to support an immigration bill. The informal
panel is chaired by Miami Republican Sen. Anitere Flores.
No vote was scheduled for Monday and Flores said the Sen-
ate will take a go-slow approach. Officials with the federal
Immigration and Customs Enforcement and immigrant ad-
vocates were also expected to testify. The panel included
Sen. Mike Bennett, a Bradenton Republican who has filed
one of more than four immigration bills awaiting hearings
in the Legislature this spring. Like the Arizona bill, Ben-
nett's legislation requires police to check the immigration
status of criminal suspects and report undocumented im-
migrants to federal authorities. His bill prohibits police
from using racial profiles, but critics say the practice is un-
avoidable when the police are given such a mission. Roman
said Florida legislation would likely suffer the same fate
as the Arizona statute. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton
struck down most, of the Arizona law, including a provision
requiring police to check on immigration status, saying it
is unconstitutional 1)ecause it, usurps federal authority. "It
would be an unworkable system to have a variety of states
with different immigration laws," Roman said. "If we follow
Arizona's law, the efforts of local law enforcement would be
wasted." By Jim Ash, Florida Capital Bureau Chief

Gov. Rick Scott has ordered flags at. state buildings
to be lowered to half staff to acknowledge the "tragic events
of January 8, 2011" in Tucson, Ariz., where six people were
killed, including a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, dur-
ing a Saturday shooting spree. The shootings also wounded
14, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Scott's action
calling for U.S. and state flags to be lowered in respect until
Friday follows President Obama's similar action for federal
buildings and military installations. Florida governors fre-
quently call for flags to fly at half staff in recognition of the
deaths of prominent public figures or law enforcement and
military personnel from Florida killed in action. Scott's an-
nouncement Monday morning said the honor was "a mark
of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence
perpetrated on innocent Americans." By Paul Flenmming,
Florida Capital Bureau

Gov. Rick Scott wasted no time halting the wheels
of government while he decides which agency rules and
regulations will promote the business-friendly climate he
promised on the campaign trail. Scott on Friday defended
an executive order he issued on his first day in office that
suspended all rule-making while his administration decides
whether the proposed rules provide a "benefit to a consumer


reflect upon an important person in their lives, and teach-
ers can emphasize good writing skills.
Each year we have seen more participation and better es-
says. This experience is only possible because of wonderful
cooperation between all involved: the students, the teach-
ers, the district personnel, the retired educators, and the
Best Western who furnish a room where the judges work.
This cooperative activity represents a facet of the good edu-
cation going on in Walton County.

versus the cost to killing jobs." Does Scott. or any governor,
have the authority alone to freeze the implementation of
rules?
It's a process that begins when the Legislature passes
a law and ends when regulators translate it into detailed
guidelines that must be followed.
Frank Matthews, an attorney and veteran lobbyist for the
Association for Florida Community Developers, sees no
reason why Scott can't put on the brakes. "The Legislature
grants the executive rule-making authority," Matthews
said. "He should be able to choose not to wield that author-
ity."
Open-government advocates are worried that Scott's
suspension of the rule-making process, which gives citizens
the right to speak out at public meetings and allows them
to track the process on the Internet, will take decision mak-
ing back behind closed doors. "Anything that would nega-
tively impact that transparency would not be a good thing,"
said Jim Rhea, executive director of the First Amendment
Foundation. Environmentalists warn that the effort could
backfire in the short term and that Scott's pledge to re-
view all existing agency rules and regulations not just
those pending approval isn't workable. "Have you ever
seen the Florida Administrative Code?" said EarthJustice
attorney David Guest. "It's in volumes 8 feet long, it's in
microscopic type and it's printed on rice paper. It reads
like Chinese trigonometry. Who is he going to get to decide
this?" The Department of Environmental Protection is un-
der a federal consent decree to come up standards limiting
nitrogen and phosphorous pollution in state waters, Guest
points out. Scott won't like the results if Florida waits too
long to complete the job, Guest said. "If you don't do rule-
making on that, the federal government will come in and
do it for you," he said. When 160 lawmakers sign off on a
bill and a governor signs it, the policy makers can't think
of every contingency, Guest said. Rule-making gives profes-
sional regulators the flexibility to tailor the policy goals to
the real world, Guest said. That's why regulators were able
five years ago to quickly change a regulation that required
all commercial swimming pools measuring more than 1,500
square feet to use dangerous gasified chlorine cleaning sys-
tems, Guest said. Traditional liquid chlorine kept the water
just as safe and didn't risk the release of potentially deadly
gas, Guest said. But it's just that flexibility that has long
frustrated legislators. Scott's order is welcomed by Sen.
Mike Bennett, a Republican from Bradenton who passed
legislation in 2009 to ease "concurrency" requirements that
force developers to pay for new roads before they build.
Two years later, regulators are still trying to implement the
legislation, Bennett said. Bennett's not worried that Scott's
executive order will drag the process out any longer. He's
optimistic that Scott's administration will bring in new
management that will implement the Legislature's busi-
ness-friendly mandates more quickly. "The biggest problem
that we have up here in Tallahassee is rule-making." said
Bennett, an electrical contractor. "Yes, I'm frustrated. I
think this will speed up the process. Maybe it's true that we
do have just too many bureaucrats." By Jim Ash, Florida
Capital Bur(au Chief

DFS man arrested for battery following standoff


JERRY LYNN WISE


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) reported
that a DeFuniak Springs
man was arrested Friday
(Jan. 7) and booked on
charges of battery (domestic
violence), battery by stran-
gulation and possession of a
weapon or ammunition by a
convicted Florida felon.
Jerry Lynn Wise, 41, held


lawmen in a standoff that
lasted nearly six hours. Dep-
uties had been dispatched in
response to a call that Wise
had battered his disabled
brother. A family member
reportedly advised deputies
that Wise might be found


at his residence, and that
he might be armed. He was
alone when they arrived,
and repeatedly refused to
comply with orders to sur-
render. Tear gas was fired
several times into the house
by WCSO's SWAT team, but


"Wise repeatedly held a fire-
arm to his head and refused
to vacate the residence,"
said a WCSO release. He fi-
nally was driven out of the
residence and taken into
custody. He was taken to
Walton County Jail.


Wise's brother was sent
to North Okaloosa Medical
Center.
Additional charges are
reportedly pending.

and all are welcome.


Officers with the De-
Funiak Springs Police De-
partment responded to a
traffic crash involving a city
of DeFuniak Springs gar-
bage truck that occurred
at approximately 8 a.m.,
Thursday morning, Jan. 6. A
utility truck and trailer be-
longing to Chelco Services,
Inc. and was being driven
by Austin Buck Arnold, 21,
of DeFuniak Springs. The


truck and trailer was travel-
ing east in the outside lane
of U.S. 90 West.
Arnold stated that the
sun was in his eyes and he
failed to see the garbage
truck that was stopped in
the same lane. When Arnold
noticed the garbage truck.
he reportedly swerved into
the inside lane in attempts
to avoid it. The utility ma-


trials being hauled on the
trailer struck the rear of the
garbage truck, causing dam-
age to the hydraulics.
A city worker, Jody Wil-
son Wilkerson, 33, was at-
tempting to get out of the
path of the truck, but was
struck by the utility mate-
rials. Wilkerson sustained
injuries to his hands and ex-
tremities, but was conscious.
He was transported by Wal-


ton County Fire Rescue and
later taken by Air Heart to
Sacred Heart Hospital in
Pensacola. Wilkerson was
listed in stable condition.
Arnold was not believed
to be impaired at the time
of the collision, but was
charged with careless driv-
ing and issued a traffic ci-
tation. The investigation is
continuing.

tering 2011 excited about
what God is going to do.
Paintball ministry director
Caleb Hogg stated "I can't
wait to see what is going to

able to expand our existing
field with new obstacles."
The ministry, which is
open to the public the third

ginning at 9 a.m. offers chal-
lenging games for beginners
through advanced players of
all ages. Buddy Goodman,

a chance to tell people about
the love of Jesus Christ and
what He means to us."
Although lunch and C02

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 13,2011


Rural Relief Fund food pantry


faces increased demand


By LEAH STRATMANN
As winter seems to be
settling in for an extended
stay and seasonal work has
all but come to a halt, those
seeking help through the
Rural Relief Fund's food
pantry increases each time
the pantry is open.
According to pantry man-
ager Chuck Tucker, "We
served 145 families which
translates into about 400
people fed. This is an all time
high by quite a margin," he
said. "We thought we were
doing well at the first pan-
try in December when we
got 100 folks, which was
the most we had ever had,
even the Saturday before
Thanksgiving.
"On. Dec. 4, we became a
little concerned by the num-
bers, but we figured on Dec.
18 there would be at least
100, or maybe a few more
because it is cold and there
is not much work out there.
It is getting worse. We have
signed up 50 new families at
the last three pantry open-
ings," he said. "Our shelves
were bare and some of the
last people coming in for
help did not get as much as
usual."
In addition to the pres-
sure of more people on the
pantry, the delivery sched-
ule from the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA) has changed. "The
next USDA delivery isn't
until after the next pantry
on Jan. 15. I have a feel-
ing the next one won't be as
large, but I think we may
still have more than a 100. I
have an appointment at the
Milton Food Bank, where I


buy eggs, bread, and meats
at a greatly reduced price.
Then I will go to the dol-
lar store for canned goods,"
Tucker noted.
Along with the increased
demand on the pantry, some
donations were received dur-
ing the Christmas season,
"We were invited to a pot-
luck dinner in south Walton
and presented with a $2,000
check from Simple Faith.
Then Ann [Chuck's wife and
Muscogee Nation of Florida
chief] went to a meeting with
the Democratic Women's
Caucus and they had raised
more than $400. Individual
donations from people who
have heard about us added
another $1,000, all of which
only gets us through the
next three pantry openings,"
Tucker emphasized.
Donations of non-perish-
able foods as well as cash
are always welcome, as are
offers of labor.
"Out of the blue, last
week I was informed a
group of students from the
University of Connecticut
would arrive on Monday,
Jan. 10 to work for a week
on tribal land," Tucker said.
"They will work painting
and sprucing up the pantry
and begin working on get-
ting the other trailer ready
for the thrift shop," Tucker
said.
The students, who ar-
rived as expected, are part
of a community outreach
project at UConn under the
umbrella of Community
Collaborations, Interna-
tional (CCI). Team leader
Kayleigh MacRae said, "We
go on trips and do meaning-


ful service. This year it is all
about rural poverty," Mac-
Rae said.
Ryan Brown, another
student volunteer and one
of the 20 working on tribal
land, said in total about
60 people made the trip to
Northwest Florida with CCI
director Steve Boisvert. "We
are just part of the group
which came here and we will
return in the spring," Brown
said.
Boisvert said, "We got
to various spots and do en-
vironmental projects with
groups such as the Choc-
tawhatchee Basin Authority
(CBA) and the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection (DEP). We came
to this area originally be-
cause of the impact of the
oil spill," Boisvert said, ex-
plaining the presence of the
volunteers on the Emerald
Coast.
"When we came to set
up we hired Ophelia Mur-
phy who runs the Walton
County Citizens Emergency
Response Team (CERT) pro-
gram. We asked her about
other local projects needing
help and she told us about
the work being done here,"
Boisvert said. "On this trip
we have more than 60 people
on the ground. We have 20
in Bruce, 20 working in Fort
Walton Beach for a disabled
person who needed some
work done in and around his
home, 10 working with Hab-
itat for Humanity and an-
other 14 working with CBA
on an oyster reef restoration
project. They are here to
work and that is what they
do," Boisvert said.


Not only do the students
put in a full day's work, they
also pay expenses involved
with getting to work sites.
Boisvert estimates the cost
is less than $300 per stu-
dent. While here, the stu-
dents are bunking down at
Camp Timpoochee.
"We are going to be back
in this area from Feb. 20
through the end of March,"
Boisvert said. "More than
650 students will be coming
through in groups and doing
whatever needs to be done.
We are still looking for proj-
ects in the area, which will
be evaluated by our field
representatives," he said.
Those seeking help should
call Boisvert at (608) 772-
7323 for an evaluation and
to get in line for the March
visit. The trip in March will
include more work at the
Muscogee Nation of Florida.
"We are here to stay," Bois-
vert said, "for as long as they
need us."
Donations to the Rural
Relief Fund may be made by
dropping off food at the trib-
al office in Bruce or by mail-
ing checks to 278 Church
Road, Bruce, FL 32455.

A well-attended ceremony marking the opening i '
of the Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC)
Community Services Complex was held in Niceville [
on Jan. 5. The 120,000 square-foot facility houses
Okaloosa County's year-round 911 call center and
emergency operations center, a 2,200-seat arena, a
emergency oertions center, a 2 seat arena, a SANDY SIMS (front, center right), chair of the Northwest Florida State College Board of Trustees and James Campbell

his honor. Day is one of the most decorated military
members in American history and is the recipient of .. .. .
the Medal of Honor. isi and
"I am astonished and very humbled," Day said in i- J 1
his characteristic low key manner. "Obviously I am
proud of this recognition." I,-'
The main portion of the ceremony was held in the
new sports arena with many dignitaries addressing .J .
the attendees. Among them was Okaloosa County .
Commission Chairman James Campbell who was
proud of the new facility to say the least. -
"This complex is second to none, there is nothing
to compare it to," Campbell said in his remarks. "I -
want to thank everyone involved, thanks to the col- .
lege and thank you all for coming."
NWFSC Vice President David Goetsch also ad-
dressed the gathering. He too expresses his pride .
in the new facility but encouraged citizens to recog-
nize Day and his accomplishments.
"It is my privilege to recognize Col. Day and his '4 i
wife Doris because in a world that has come to use .
the term hero much too loosely, Col. Bud Day is the
real thing." Goetsch said. "It is fitting that we would
name a wing of an arena after Col. Day because he ..'-
has spent his entire life, both in the military and as
a civilian, in the public arena."
After all the dignitaries had spoken a ribbon cut-
ting ceremony followed. The festivities concluded
with the NWFSC cheerleaders performing for the
crowd. THE 2,200 SEAT ARENA is a state of the art facility.

available to those interested. Later that evening the ...... ..... .... .....

Ask

SAuntie Em
, , ,, . . . . . . . .. ,, ,*- ** * * " 1" 1 1 1 1


Dear Auntie Em,
I'm worried terribly for
my daughter, but she won't
listen to me. I'm hoping if
you respond, she will read
your column. My daughter
is a bright, well-behaved
young college graduate. She
has a good job, still lives at
home, but pays for most of
what she needs. What I am
finding alarming is the way
she talks about her job in
public on her tweeting or
twittering or whatever she
calls it. She has a habit of
letting her unhappiness be
known on these Internet
sites, when she is upset
about something. Instead of
speaking with her boss, she
shares it with her friends
online.
I understand how some-
one can not be pleased all the
time with their work or the
people they work with, but I
don't think she should write
about it, lest it come back to
bite her. She just laughs it
off and says it's her freedom
of speech. I tried to tell her
it will be her bosses' free-
dom to fire if they get wind
of it. I just don't understand
young people. Millions are
without jobs, and she has no
worries. I understand vent-
ing, but I wish she would
do it with her friends on the
phone or in person and not
leave a trail for her employ-
er to find. In fact, call me old
fashioned, but I was taught
not to even talk out of school
about the business I worked
for, until I was no longer
there, if at all. What's your
take on this?
Internet Mom
Dear Internet Mom,
I'm surprised that for
a college graduate, your
daughter was not taught in
one of her communication
classes the dangers of over-
Ssharing in social media. Peo-
Sple have lost their jobs or not
been hired for "talking out
of school" as us old-timers
call it. In fact, it is becoming
the norm for larger compa-


nies to request passwords
or to be friendeded" to access
potential job seekers' social
media posts or blogs before
they are hired. You can tell
a lot about a person by what
they decide is fair game for
sharing and today's youth
don't often think that what
they are writing now will
come back to haunt them,
but other job seekers can tell
them; it's not easy out there
to get a job and everyone is
looked at closer than ever.
If she decides to continue
to act unprofessionally and
her bosses find out, she may
not need that college degree,
at least I don't think you
need one to work a drive-
through window and hand
out fries.
She also has the great
comfort of knowing if she
doesn't have a job, she still
can live with mom and dad.
People who understand real
life, understand this gives
her a longer leash to run on
than most. And, yes, I agree
with you that if she is un-
happy with her job. she has
options. She can complain to
the people who can change
things, she can vent in pri-
vate to friends and family
she trust, or she can con-
tinue the route she is tak-
ing and if something hap-
pens, she will have herself
to blame and have learned a
lesson. The really bad part
of this is other employers
will be wary of her, if they
research her history. No one
wants an employee that is
not loyal or trustworthy or
speaks badly of their job in
public. If I owned a busi-
ness, I wouldn't want to hire
her. Some lessons need to be
learned the hard way, this
might be one if she doesn't
wise up and then, she'll
have plenty of time to spend
online. Good luck and God
bless.

RANDALL GRINER, his wife Glenda, and grandchildren
Payne and Claire, gathered at CHELCO for his retirement
on Jan. 3. Griner began working at CHELCO inrMarch 1967
as an apprentice lineman. He worked as a line foreman and
later as supervisor of underground construction. When he
retired he was operations supervisor.



My Country Home
A small brick house, our very own,
my hubby and I live there alone.
Beneath these tall towering pines,
wildlife is found of many kinds.

Foxes run across fields so green,
squirrels and possums can be seen.
Chickadees search for food each day,
we like to watch them as they play!

Shooting stars fall across the sky,
with a north wind that's blowing by.
A cozy fire is our haven of rest,
life in the country is the best!

The smell of fresh wet earth and rain,
makes me glad to be home again.
At each days end with fading light,
I know in my heart, things are right!

By Mary Ann Whiddon

tirement from CHELCO on Dec. 30, 2010, after 35 years of

before moving to the engineering department. He worked
there as a staking engineer and later as supervisor of power-
line design. When he left CHELCO, he was supervisor of the
new GPS department.

Challenge


Lord, everyday it's a challenge to live.
Lord, everyday for You my life I give.
You came and lived, on the cross You died,
You did this for us the plan is true and tried.
All we need is the faith to trust in You.
Know that without a doubt Your love will see us through.
Knowing Jesus and that He is here with me now,
Gives me confidence and will only do what he'll allow.
Jesus Christ as your Savior and friend,
He was there at creation, He'll be there at the end.
Life as a Christian can be a challenge for sure.
The evil one will lead you into thoughts that are obscure.
The devil wants you to doubt things you know,
To hinder your witness when Jesus your life does show.
We live, we laugh, we love and eventually all die,
It is just great to know Jesus how He lived and why.
He will give you purpose and a reason to live,
For what He did, to Him your life, you want to give.

Dear God, lead me down the path, don't let me stray,
Jesus, be a light to my feet and show me the way.

Revelation Paintball. The


Set a Pace and

Run the Race



By Ronnie McBrayer


My middle school-aged
sons have reached a new
challenge in their sports ca-
reer. This year they began
serious athletic condition-
ing in their Physical Edu-
cation class (times being
what they are, I'm glad P.E.
is still required). Gone are
the romping-around-days of
freeze-tag and unruly dodge
ball games. Now they have
to meet physical strength
standards and run the mile
every week.
And not only do they have
to run it. their coach re-
quires that each student im-
prove their running time ev-
cry week. Now, I'm no help
to them in this department
at all. Call on me for help
with a history project or a
book report. But running?
Forget it. In fact, if you ever
see me running running
anywhere please stop and
help me. Something big and
bad is chasing me.
No, it is their mother who
must coach them when it
comes to improving their
weekly time. What with her
little collection of 5K tro-
phies and ribbons (continu-
ally they mock me), she's
best qualified for showing
them the way. And the thing
she teaches them most often
is how to set pace, how to
finish the race they begin.
To complete any long dis-
tance race the runner must
set a speed that he or she
can maintain. Flying out of
the starting block as if your
britches are on fire will do
you no good if you are suck-


ing wind by the second turn;
this is true on the track, and
true in life.
The writer of the book of
Hebrews. aptly enough, once
compared life to a sporting
event. We are athletes on
the track in this arena of life
and there is a race to run.
His coaching advice to us
is essential. He says. "Strip
down, travel light, and don't
quit."
You can't run in stiletto
heels or heavy steel-toed
boots. You can't maintain
your pace while running in
a three-piece suit or denim
skirt. Get rid of those things
that will only entangle and
slow you. And forget about
carrying anything with you:
No backpacks, no pull-be-
hind wagons, no coolers or
picnic baskets. Free your-
self from as much baggage
as possible, just as a runner
in a race.
And then, keep your eyes
on the finish line not being
distracted by those things
that can divert you off the
track: finish the course.
Don't go wandering into the
stands for a hot dog or a beer.
Get out of the souvenir shop
and the weight room. Quit
giving interviews to ESPN
while the game is still on.
Those who finish the race
are the ones who stay at it,
so stay at it.
On my to-do list before I
turned the big "4 0" last
year was to complete a cen-
tury bicycle ride; a hundred
miles in a day (I'm not a
complete couch potato!). So


course is located on Millard
Gainey Road off of Coy Bur-..
gess Loop.
For more information,
call Southwide at 892-3835.









Ronnie McBrayer

I took the writer of Hebrews'
advice. I got in shape and as
light as possible. And on the
day of the ride, I didn't con-
cern myself with what was
going on anywhere else in'
the world. I didn't stop to
visit with people or take lei-
surely breaks at Starbucks.
I stayed with it, grinding
away hour after hour and
mile after mile.
My friends asked me mil-
lions of questions afterward:
"How many people rode in
the ride?" I can't remember
now. "What place did you
finish?" I don't know. "How
long did it take you from
beginning to end?" For-
ever. it seems. "How many
hours did you put in train-
ing?" Not enough. "Would
you do it again?" Yes, I will.
But for me, there was only
one question I wanted to be
able to answer when it was
over: "Did you finish?" Yes,
I did. and for me that was
enough.
The Scriptures do not
provide us with any mysti-
cal, steroid-ized shortcuts to
"run (or ride) with persever-
ance the race marked out for
us." Instead, they coach us
to set a pace for the mara-
thon of life we must run.
It will take everything we
have to finish, but finishing
is enough.

PDL'sHillaryHarpercrossescareer 1,000-point



threshold in victory against Jay


By REID TUCKER
The double-header
against Jay proved a mixed
bag for Ponce de Leon, as
the girls' team meted out a
one-sided beating to the vis-
Siting Royals, while the boys'
squad suffered a tough loss.
Hillary Harper led the
Lady Pirates (17-1) to a re-
sounding 71-36 victory on
Friday, Jan. 7 with 23 points
to her credit. Harper accom-
plished the feat in just the
first and third quarters of
the game and all but one of
her eight baskets came from
behind the 3-point line. Hil-
lary's sister Ashley was
Ponce's second-highest scor-
er with 17 points (including
an impressive four 3-point-
ers) and she was followed by
Jasmine Flock, who had 15
points.
"We shot the ball really
well tonight," said Ponce de
Leon coach Tim Alford. "If


we can continue to shoot like
that it'll help us on down the
road."
Alternatively, the best
Jay's girls could muster was
11 points from Tessa Hen-
dricks and eight points from
Danielle Skaggs. While ev-
ery player on Jay's girls' ros-
ter scored at least one point,
no one outside of Hendricks
and Skaggs got above three
points. The home team con-
sistently outpointed the Roy-
als, at one time by as much
as 17 points in a quarter.
Fresh off their third-
place finish at the Hilton
Sandestin Basketball Blow-
out, the Lady Pirates were
led by Hillary Harper, who
was completely unstoppable
from the 3-point line, scoring
15 points on five 3-pointers
(three of which came back-
to-back in the last minute of
the first quarter). Not to be
outdone by her sister, Ash-


ley Harper scored 14 points
of her own over the first
two quarters, as Hillary sat
out the second period. The
younger Harper was as-
sisted by Flock, who scored
5, and by Holly Parson, who
scored a 2-pointer at the
buzzer to put Ponce de Leon
up 46-22 at the half.
With both Harpers on
the court and scoring in the
third quarter, Ponce de Leon
blazed 32 points ahead of Jay
in the third quarter with the
assistance of Flock, Kaitlyn
Carroll and Sha-lea Yates.
With the Lady Pirates up
67-29, Ponce de Leon coach
Tim Alford switched in play-
ers off the bench for the final
quarter, which saw the team
score on just one field goal
and two shots from the char-
ity stripe. Though Jay took
advantage of the switch,
increasing the team's score
36 points overall, a running


clock dispelled any hopes
for a comeback attempt and
Ponce took the win by a
35-point margin.

While the win against Jay
furthers Ponce's continued
dominance in district play,
the real news of the game
was the impressive feat of
Hillary Harper, who, along
with 10 points in the pre-
vious night's game against
Pleasant Home, crossed the
career 1,000-point-mark.
Harper wasn't available for
an interview immediately
following the game but Al-
ford said his star player
probably wasn't even aware
of having made the mark
(and if she was aware of it
she'd said nothing to him
about it). He said that's the
kind of player she is: more
concerned with the team's
success that her individual
achievements.


"[Harper]'s a good leader
for us," Alford said. "She
plays on both ends too. Not
only does she score a lot but
she usually gets a tough
defensive assignment too.
She's a complete player.
From a coach's perspec-
tive, she's exactly what you
would like to have."
As for Ponce de Leon's
boys, Zach Zralic led the
pirates with 13 points,
while Matthew Hicks had
8. Among the rest of Ponce
de Leon's squad, only three
scored, and none got more
than 3 points. Though Jay's
best scorer was Todd Laney,
who had 17 points, the Roy-
als nevertheless routed the
Pirates 45-29.
The two teams battled
through a relative slow-
scoring first quarter, with


neither side scoring until
three minutes into the pe-
riod, the margin separated
19-13 in favor of the royals.
Jay pulled away in the sec-
ond quarter, as Ponce's play-
ers failed to score on most
possessions and only Chad
Brown managed a field goal,
though that was a 3-pointer.
Hicks and Zralic scored for
five points and four points,
respectively in the third
quarter but the team man-
aged only six points total in
the final period compared to
Jay's 26 points in the second
half.
The win moved Jay's re-
cord up to 3-9 overall, while
Pirates, having lost the
game to the Royals, dropped
another game to make their
record 2-13 thus far in the
'10-'11 season.

Tigers 49-39 in their first
contest of 2011 and put up
24 points against Sneads as
the Seahawks blasted the
Pirates 70-19.

defeated the Bulldogs for
the third time this season
to sweep the season series
with a 41-15 victory on Jan.
4.
Shafer Martin- The Sea-


hawks forward continued a
good week by hitting a pair

Dannica Mosher The


Freeport guard continues to
put up spectacular numbers
with solid outside shooting.
Mosher helped the Bull-

Ricardo Ramirez The
Walton senior midfielder
netted his third hat trick of
the 2010-2011 season in the
Braves' soccer team's 3-2 de-
feat of Freeport on Tuesday,
,Jan. 4. Ramirez, a starter
since his freshman year,
turned was a solid perform-
er in past seasons, providing
strong support on assists on
offense and pressure on de-
fense but really came into
his own last year by scor-
ing 12 goals for the Braves.
With 15 goals so far and six
games to go in the season,
he stands to become the top
scorer in the recent memory
of Walton's soccer program.

Walton soccer team, minus starters, edges out 3-2 win against Freeport


By REID TUCKER
Walton's 3-2 soccer victo-
ry over the visiting Freeport
Bulldogs came at the tail
end of a game with enough
twists to make Rod Ser-
ling of Twilight Zone fame
proud.
First of all, it was the
team's Senior Night and the
Braves (3-7-2) were short
some starters due to either
injury or absenteeism. This
meant that many of the
players who took the field
for Walton (in the words
of coach Steve Stevenson)
"hadn't seen more than 10


minutes of game time all
season." What's more, Wal-
ton's top scorer, Ricardo
Ramirez, put away all three
of the team's goals effec-
tively on one leg as nagging
hamstring pains flared up,
preventing him from play-
ing the entire second half.
Braves head coach Steve
Stevenson was pleasantly
surprised when his much
less-experienced players in
critical forward and midfield
positions performed above
and beyond his wildest ex-
pectations for the team's
first post-holiday game. In

particular he commended
the efforts of Jacob Johnson,
Kenan Atabey and Allen
Lane.
"We were just coming off
Christmas break and we
didn't have our subs," Ste-
venson said. "Kids who had
almost zero playing time
were put into pretty critical
positions tonight, and they
werq taking care of business.
They did a terrific job."
Stevenson also had high
praise for starters Andrew
Shipman, who played the
entire game without a break,
and goalie Stan Standland,

"It'll be a tough game,"
Stevenson said. "I felt the
first game we should've won
but we let them back into it
and they tied it up. I'm look-

that we were able to hang in

they're a very tough team."

Graceville sweeps South Walton


By PATRICK CASEY
The second half of the
high school basketball sea-
son got underway for the
South Walton Seahawks on
Jan. 4 as the Graceville Ti-
gers came to town and swept
the host squad in both var-
sity contests.
The South Walton girls
team put up a fight as they
were deadlocked with the
Tigers at 20-all at halftime
but a slow start in the third
quarter allowed Graceville
to roll up a 13-point ad-
vantage during the period.
South Walton committed
four turnovers and missed
five shots during the first
three minutes of the second
half as the Tigers used their
offensive rebounding and
their superior size on the
inside to pull away for a 39-
26 lead after 24 minutes of
play.
The Seahawks fought
back in the final eight min-
utes but could not shave
more than a handful of
points off the score as shoot-
ing woes at the free throw
line (2-of-7 from the charity
stripe in the fourth quarter)
slowed their comeback ef-
fort.
Sam Snider was the only
Seahawks player in double
figures as she tallied 18
points.


Graceville got 12 points
from center Jessica McClen-
don while Wynterra Pitt-
man provided several key
shots from the perimeter to
post 10 points. Senior guard
Mychea Williams scored
nine points from the outside
as the Tigers' balanced ros-
ter earned a sweep in the
season series with a 49-39
victory.
In the boys' contest,
Graceville ran out to a 23-
13 lead after one quarter of
play only to see South Wal-
ton rally to cut the deficit to
33-30 at halftime.
Graceville lit up the score-
board in the third quarter
as Marquise White got hot
from the floor as he led the
Tigers with 21 points on the
night. White was not alone
as three other Tigers players
hit double figures with By-
ron Laster adding 12 points,
Kevin Potts 11 and Rasheed
Campbell 10 points.
Shafer Martin led the
way for the host squad with
14 points while Tanner De-
gafferelly added 10 points.
The Seahawks struggled
again with their ball-han-
dling as they had 29 turn-
overs against a very athletic
Graceville squad.
The South Walton boys
picked up a 53-51 non-dis-
trict win at Wewahitchka

By REID TUCKER
The two overarching pas-
sions of Steve Williams' life
are basketball and fight-
ing cancer, so when the op-
portunity to combine those
passions presented itself, he
jumped at it.
That opportunity was re-
alized on Thursday, Jan. 6,
with the first annual "Cats
Against Cancer" charity
basketball event with pro-
ceeds going to support can-
cer research. Williams, who
has served as Paxton High
School's head girls' basket-
ball coach for the past two
seasons, spearheaded the
rapid turnaround on Cats
Against Cancer, guiding
the transition from concept
to reality in the few short
weeks from last Christmas
to now.
Williams became dedicat-
ed to combating the disease
after he lost his mother,
Sandra (who beat colon can-
cer in 2001 while recover-
ing from a severe stroke) to
ovarian cancer in 2007. He
said watching his mother's
brave battles against the
disease was what ultimate-
ly steeled compelled him to
find ways to fight it.
"It just ate her up," Wil-
liams said. "To see that was
just devastating. There's not
a day goes by that I don't
think about her.. There's
not a day goes by that she
doesn't influence me as a
coach and a teacher. I swore
that I would do something,
that's why [fighting cancer]
is my passion. It became
something that consumed
me."
At its core, the Cats
Against Cancer event was
a triple-header, one game
apiece for Paxton's junior
varsity team and girls' and
boys' varsity basketball
teams against Rocky Bayou,
but instead of paying a reg-
ular gate fee attendees gave
a $5 donation to one of three
charities. Basketball fans
that came out could donate
to cancer research at St.
Jude's Children Research
Hospital or the American
Cancer Society or they could
choose to support local ovar-
ian cancer patient Donna
Floyd. All told, the event
raised $1,469 between dona-
tions to the three aforemen-
tioned charities and sales
of "Cats Against Cancer" t-


with the club. He played in
44 games in four seasons
at Marshall, catching 199
passes for 2,619 yards (13.2
avg.) with 23 TDs. He posted
50 receptions for 607 yards
(12.1 avg.) with four TDs for
the Thundering Herd a year
ago. The Chipley native
played at Hargrave Military
Academy in Chatham, Va.
prior to enrolling at Mar-
shall.
Former South Walton
tennis player Alexa Guara-
chi is a sophomore at the
University of Alabama and
is ranked No. 63 in singles.
In doubles, Guarachi and
Courtney McLane form to
make the nation's No. 6
tandem in just their sec-
ond season together. The


shirts.
The games themselves
showcased dominant perfor-
mances by all three of Pax-
ton's teams. The Bobcats
swept Rocky Bayou 43-12 in
the JV game and the varsity
teams followed suit, with
the Lady Cats walking away
with a 65-23 victory and the
boys' team cruising to a 64-
36 win.
Williams said the event
was not only a great way to
make money for a worthy
cause but also a chance for
the school's basketball play-
ers to live up to the expecta-
tions set for them by previ-
ous generations of Paxton
athletes.
"I knew we could raise
some good money," Wil-
liams said. "I just think that
we have such a special com-
munity here in that our bas-
ketball players are the lead-
ers of the school and players
from years past are the the
leaders of the community.
Paxton basketball is looked
on as such a positive influ-
ence. I want the kids to un-
derstand it's not only things
handed to you, it's about
giving back."
The Bobcats' fight against
cancer didn't end with the
charity ballgames, though.
Williams said the school's
athletes will also be heavily
involved this spring in orga-
nizing the American Cancer
Society-sponsored Relay for
Life, which he said will be
"team-building" exercise for
the up-and-coming play-
ers. However, Williams' ul-
timate goal is to see Cats
Against Cancer grow into a
three-day basketball tour-
nament around the time of
Thanksgiving or Christmas
of this year.
Williams, in conjunction
with Paxton's boys' basket-
ball coach, Jeff Bradley,
hopes to bring in teams from
outside the area to face off
against local mainstays like
Walton High School, Ponce
de Leon and others. Like
the inaugural Cats Against
Cancer, all proceeds will be
donated to cancer research.
In order to ensure as much
money as possible goes to
the charities the event sup-
ports, Williams has already
begun looking for sponsors
to offset some of the costs to
bring teams in and pay for
officials.

Williams hopes by ex-
panding the event that
more money will be raised
to support cancer research,
but he's also looking into
the pl,.-ihbilit v that free can-
cer screenings could be done
at the tournament. As a
health and wellness teacher
as well as a coach, Williams
tries to inform his students
and players as much as pos-
sible about the importance
of early detection when it
comes to cancer. Especially
with such a hard-working
team, Williams said he does
his best to make his players
and students understand
that cancer is no respecter
of persons.
"All our skills, all our
abilities can be taken from
us in a split-second," he
said. "Cancer doesn't dis-
criminate against anybody.
Detection and early aware-
ness is the key. If we can
make them aware of it now,
maybe one day that will save
their lives. I'd love to see us
as part of tournament free
health screening. Obviously
we couldn't do all the diag-
nostic tests...but we could do
some things that, could help
make people more aware of
their health."
In spite of the success of
the first-ever Cats Against
Cancer, Williams said now
is not the time to rest on
that success. By trying to
get new programs going at
Paxton and by involving
other schools in the area
in similar cancer research
fundraisers, we come one
step closer to beating the
disease. As Williams said,
the promise to his mother
made him realize that even
though the sport of basket-
ball is his weapon in the war
against cancer, the means
are not as important as the
ends when it comes to find-
ing a cure.
"There's just not enough
done for cancer [research],"
he said. "If I could raise
one more dollar that dollar
could be the one that beats
it. It's become a life passion
of mine, to raise that one
dollar. I don't know which
dollar it will be, but if we
can get somebody to come
who never comes [to Paxton
for a basketball game], who
doesn't even care about Pax-
ton, maybe their dollar is
the one."

rushing.

SWFD passes audit,


moves forward with


financial plans


By LEAH STRATMANN
The first order of business
for the first meeting of the
year for the South Walton
Fire District (SWFD) was
a report from Kevin Boyer
with O'Sullivan Creel con-
cerning the audit through
the last fiscal year.
"This audit is through
Sept. 30, 2010. This year we
had the pleasure of meeting
with the audit committee.
This is the first year such
a committee has been in
place," Boyer noted.
Boyer reported the audit
was unqualified. With "ev-
erything adhering to stan-
dard practices of accounting
with no internal control de-
ficiencies noted."
Commissioner Jack Abit,
a member of the audit com-
mittee said he would have
a meeting of the audit com-
mittee specifically to discuss
the report and if the com-
mittee is able to meet in
January, will make a report
to the entire board in Febru-
ary.
13ryan Flanagan. fiscal
officer for SWF) said he
has met with the attorney
for the pension plan and
the option of any invest-
ment in real estate for the
money has been removed.
"On behalf of the pension


plan, I request approval of
the resolution which would
bring the district up to cur-
rent IRS rules and state of
Florida rules and Depart-
ment of Labor regulations,"
Flanagan said.
"These are items required
by the IRS to clean up and
make our policies legal, cor-
rect," asked chairman Mau-
rice Gilbert.
Flanagan assured him
the changes were adminis-
trative and again said, "The
pension board cannot invest
in real estate at this time."
Lori Bytell, attorney for
the district, noted she had
reviewed the administrative
handbook. "Nothing of sub-
stance needs to be changed.
The persons who worked on
this document did an excel-
lent job," she said.
Bytell said she also re-
viewed the policy on whis-
tleblowers.
"I have two areas of con-
cern. There are state and
federal policies in place to
protect whistleblowers and
I wondered at the intent of
the document. I also won-
dered who is going to be
t he overseer of this policy? I
don't have a problem with a
policy that says a person re-
porting criminal activity is
protected, but if we are go-


ing to have a policy we need
to clearly define how we
handle that policy. I don't
know that we need the addi-
tional layering when there
are state and federal protec-
tion laws."
No action was taken on
the whistleblower policy.
A compromise solution
was found between the
union and district regarding
adaptive staffing, which the
union opposed. The district
agreed to use the $105,000
in unexpended salaries to
fill in the gaps for over-
time. When that money is
gone, the union has agreed
to postpone bargained ben-
efits for the remainder of
the year and not to move
forward with litigation if
adaptive staffing has to be
implemented again.
Chief Rick Talbert noted,
"The board has to agree
to this plan. We also have
four articles needing to be
addressed before March be-
cause they have some signif-
icant financial impact. The
board directed me to freeze
all hiring and reduce over-
time. As a method to do that
we came up with adaptive
staffing and this solution led
to working with labor which

Moliterno meets with



Friends of Scenic 30A


By DOTTY NIST

Dawn Moliterno, execu-
tive director of the South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC), met
with the Friends of Scenic
30A at the nonprofit orga-
nization's first meeting of
2011. The Jan. 4 meeting
took place at the Walton
County District 5 Office in
Grayton Beach.
Moliterno described the
processes and operation of
the TDC and discussed with
Friends board members
ways for the two organiza-
tions to combine their ef-
forts.
She noted that the TDC
is a division under Walton
County government with
specific rules and regula-
tions per state law on the
use of its funds, which come
from the tourist or bed tax.
She explained that, from this
4.5-percent tax on rentals of
short term accommodations,
2 percent is used for the
TDC's administration and
marketing, 1 percent funds
beach restoration projects,
1 percent goes to new prod-
uct development, and 1/2
percent funds a partnership
with Southwest Airlines.
"Our pennies are ear-
marked," Moliterno told at-
tendees. She explained that,
no matter how important a
prospective expenditure of
TDC funds may be "to the
community or to us," no
funds may be expended un-


less the purpose supports an
increase in tourism.
The TDC recently came
under more direct oversight
by the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC), Moliterno continued,
and conducted a review of
the organization's finances
and contracts, along with an
examination of compliance
of TDC advisory board with
state statute. She said it
was determined that terms
of board members had "got-
ten out of whack" due to
timing on beginning new
terms when board members
had resigned their seats in
past years prior to the term
expiration date.
To correct this issue,
current board members re-
signed and reapplied for
their seats, Moliterno said.
She explained that all those
applications are now in and
that she will soon report to
the BCC for authorization
to move forward with rein-
stating the TDC advisory
board.
The TDC board, Mo-
literno commented, will be
holding quarterly regular
meetings. This is in contrast
with the board's previous
monthly regular meeting
schedule. The directive of
the board, she explained, is
to execute the organization's
strategic plan approved by
the BCC and to comply with
the TDC's financial respon-
sibilities.
A newsletter, "The Edge,"


which is available upon re-
quest, has been launched
to update the community
on the TDC's news and ac-
tivities, Moliterno told at-
tendees. A separate weekly
e-blast update goes specifi-
cally to bed tax collectors,
she noted.
The TD)C's advisory com-
mittees have been discon-
tinued, Moliterno revealed,
due to a number of compli-
ance issues. Among those,
she explained, was invol-
untary noncompliance with
the Sunshine Law due to
the potential for two TDC
members on a committee
discussing TDC advisory
board business outside of
board sessions.
Moliterno said the com-
mittees have been replaced
by TDC workshops on a vari-
ety of topics. The workshops
are publicly announced, and
community members are in-
vited to participate and pro-
vide input, she explained.
Workshops are upcoming
on arts and culture, on eco-
tourism, and weddings, she
revealed.
A New Product Division
has been created within
the organization, Moliter-
no commented, and TDC
staff will be working with
the community to gauge its
needs.
She said the organization
has applied for ~BP funds
available to TDCs in 2011
for marketing---and will
know soon if their applica-

tion has been successful. She
added that the TDC plans
to continue to evaluate its
effectiveness and continue
with new strategies to help
the destination grow from a
tourism standpoint.
Moliterno encouraged the
Friends of Scenic 30A mem-
bers to share their ideas for
the TDC's web site, now inl
the process of being updat-
ed, and for the organization
in general. Regarding the
Friends' priority of improv-
ing aesthetics with trash
cans on ClR-30A, she offered
to relay questions and sug-


gestions from the members
to Waste Management.

together with information
from a survey of bed tax col-

ducted by the TDC on the
topic.
Moliterno received
thanks from board members
for comiing to their meeting
and for her support of the
Friends of Scenic 30A. "We
appreciate your leadership,"

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratrnann wil l, I .. I


It being a new year and
all, I thought it was time to
change the photo you folks
have to look at week after
week. It wasn't just van-
ity prompting the change,
although I've never much
cared for the photo we have
been using-and not just
because it looks exactly like
me. It seemed like too much
of a close-up, almost leaping
off the page and into your
face.
At any rate, a couple
of things happened which
seemed to require an new
photo. First of all, the one
previously used is several
years old. Secondly, due
to the discovery of a mal-
functioning thyroid and the
medication I am taking to
regulate it, I have lost sev-
eral pounds in the last few
months, without any ef-
fort on my part. Talk about
your magic bullet! I've been
looking for this puppy all
my life. At any rate, one of
my chins has gone missing,
changing the look of my face
somewhat.
The last element is new
hair. My hairdresser, the
wonderful Karin Petersen
of La Renaissance salon in
Destin, whom I refer to as
Picasso with a pair of scis-
sors, cut my hair about a
week before Christmas. She
deemed my hair blah and
boring and gifted me with
gilded highlights to spruce
up my look. I've never had
highlights before and didn't
know what. to expect, but I
think I like the effect. Now
I sport my natural dark
brown and silver hair, plus a
smattering of golden streaks
throughout the crown of my
head. Sometimes when I
look in the mirror and see
this effect, plus my smaller
face, I am taken aback for
a few seconds. Clearly, I'm
only a few years away from
being able to hide my own
Easter eggs!
There are a lot of things
about the aging process no-
body tells you about. We all
expect a few more aches and
pains, a generally slowing of
movement, and perhalls a bit
of added forgetfulness. How-
ever, nobody says anything
about the fact a woman will
no longer have to shave her
legs or under her arms be-
cause the hair simply stops
growing, but inexplicably
she now has to be on guard
about, hair sprouting fronl
her chin! What kind of a
screwed up system is this?
I'd like to have a word with
the body architect please.
This may not be every-
one's experience, but as


I age I'm getting so I can
only take so much news on
a single subject. The trag-
edy of the shootings in Ari-
zona last weekend is a case
in point. Rather than turn
on television where I knew
the debate would get down
to whether or not this dis-
turbed individual was breast
or bottle-fed, I chose to get
my facts from UPI reporting
on the Internet. This way
I got more facts and less
speculation and as heinous
as the crime was, all indi-

unwilling to pay it, thus
making it more difficult for
people to have a dialog with
those they have elected.

Chamber luncheon

highlights mentoring program


By DOTTY NIST
"A leader doesn't just get
the message across, a leader
is the message," said Joan
Carter.
Carter, a local business
consultant, was the fea-
tured speaker at the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce's Jan. 5 Power of
Business Luncheon at the
Sandestin Beach Hilton.
The event was sponsored by
the BUILD Council.
The letters of BUILD
stand for "Building U In
Leadership Development."
With the vision of bridg-
ing the gap between to-
day's leaders and those to
take the helm in the future,
the BUILD program was
created by the 2006-2007
Leadership Walton class.
Associated with the cham-
-ber, Leadership Walton is a
training program for North-
west Florida men and wom-
en in leadership positions
aimed at fostering a legacy
of leadership and strength-
ening the community.
Carter encouraged at-
tendees to get involved in
the BUILD program as a
mentor or mentee in order
to help provide the leader-
ship needed for the commu-
nity to carry forth into the
future.
She observed that no or-
ganization is able to suc-


ceed without a leader in the
background.
Are leaders born or cre-
ated? Carter contended that
inborn leadership tenden-
cies do exist, but that it is
also quite possible to develop
leadership abilities through
education and training.
She noted that, in con-
trast with those of the past,
those in leadership roles
today aren't just tall males
"with a full head of hair."
There is a lot of variety in
the appearance of today's
leaders, and both males and
females are among them,
Carter commented.
Among the functions of
a leader in an organization
are instilling values and
wisdom and developing a
work force, she noted.
Leaders who serve as
mentors both instill confi-
dence and keep confidences
within a mentor/mentee
relationship. Carter contin-
ued. "They observe and offer
honest feedback," she said,
because the mentor "is ob-
jective and has no agenda."
A mentor acts as a role mod-
el and is available and ac-
cessible to the mentee, she
explained.
Mentoring programs ben-
efit organizations offering
them by helping those orga-
nizations attract and retain
talented employees, Carter


remarked. "Mentors learn
as much as their mentee,"
she added.
Community members
can get involved in the
BUILD program by becom-
ing a mentor or a mentee
or by becoming a member
of the BUILD Council. Each
BUILD mentor establishes
a one-on-one relationship
with a mentee, spending ap-
proximately one hour per
month imparting knowledge
to that person for a one-year
period. Mentor-mentee rela-
tionships may continue past
that time frame, and this is
encouraged by the program.
Sponsors for the BUILD
program include CHELCO,
Sandestin Golf and Beach
Resort, Regions Bank,
Florida Transformer, Inc.,
O'Sullivan Creel, L.L.P.,
Seaside Cottage Rental
Agency, GCS Building So-
lutions, and Wenrick Insur-
ance Agency.
Information on the
BUILD) program, including
a downloadable mentor ap-
plication, is available by log-
ging onto the chamber's web
site, www.waltonareacham-
her.com, or people interest-
ed in getting involved with
any aspect of the BUILD
program may contact the
chamber at (850) 267-0683
to learn more about the pro-
gram.

MARCH, III21 I































For more than a
decade, Grit & Grace
has been telling the
stories of our history
and letting the public
know where we got our
start as a county. Once
again, the production
will take audiences on
a historic journey that
begins with stories and
tales shared by you.
---------------------------------------
Since 2000, the official
folklife story of Walton
County, has entertained,
educated and performed a
wide variety of stories that
have been handed down
from generation, to
generation. The
productions have brought
together stories from more
than 100 years ago, and
have combined them to
create stage performances
that have made the
audience cry, laugh, and
most of all, remember!
This year is no different
and organizers are already
gearing up with a new
script, they just need one
more thing to pull it all
together: your stories.
As in years before, Grit
& Grace has asked for the
community's help, in telling
and organizing fables,
folklore, stories and other
bits of history, about those
who helped shape Walton
County. These stories have
been about personal
experiences, family
happenings, holiday
memories and other stories
that have made it from one
generation's ear to another.

famous and colorful local
characters, politicians,
haunted tales and spooky
folklore, plus a host of other
stories. These stories have
been compiled, put into a
script form and then
performed on stage to show
just what made Walton
County what it is today.
Grit & Grace has
changed venues a couple of
times since its beginning,
but now calls DeFuniak
Springs home. There are
two reasons for the decision
to leave it in DeFuniak
Springs. One is that it is
the county seat, with the
largest venues suitable for
the performance; the other
is that the city is located in
the middle of the county.
Since the production's
early beginnings, the


ps


I.' L' [


organization has carefully
tried to portray the lives of
those who laid the
groundwork for the way
that the county and it's
residents live today. It's a
never-ending task, trying to
bring the history of days-
gone-by to life. Each G& G
production has taken
hundreds of hours,
compiling, fact checking
and writing a script that
shows the true characters
they are portraying, then
selecting actors from the


community to best portray
those characters.
Beginning in February,
the production team will
once again be asking for
stories and will be
conducting interviews with
those who wish to tell their
story. Whether it's one that
most are familiar with, or a
story that has never been
told, but was an important
part of the storyteller's life,
all will be considered.
The storytelling/
interviews will be taking

place at three or four
locations throughout
Walton County. The
evening sessions will
consist of dinner and a time
to sit down with writers, to
tell their life experience,
folklore they have been
handed down, or stories
that have helped shape the
storyteller's life and family.
The informal gatherings
will take place at locations
that are convenient to all
those who wish to tell their
stories, and will give
anyone choosing to be
interviewed, a chance to
meet organization
members, and the writers
and performers from this
year's upcoming
production.
Writers are currently
organizing and will be
working throughout the
summer, to develop and
write the script that will be
compiled from stories they
will gather in February and
March. Stories don't have
to be lengthy, and all will
be considered for this year's
performance, or for
performances in the future.
Storytelling sessions
have been shown to be the
best way to collect stories
and ideas, because they
come directly from those
citizens, and not from a
text book. It gives each
story not only more
credibility, but gives the
storyteller more of a say
when it comes to telling
their loved one's
experience, or life story.

used to bring the county's
history to life on the stage.
For nearly two decades,
Swamp Gravy has been
telling the stories and
history of south Georgia
and has been made possible
due to local performers,
crews, stories and
contributions. They have
performed at the Kennedy
Center and the 1996
Olympics in Atlanta, for
just a couple of their many
performances.
Their success is
what Grit & Grace has
striven for, and over the
past 10 years, has been
successful in doing so. But
with any community-driven
and backed performance,
they need more volunteers,
more actors, more private
and corporate funding, and
of course, more stories, to
develop a script and to put
it on stage.
Throughout the next
several weeks and months,
the organization will be
making a call to all those
interested in telling their
stories, performing in the
2011 production, and for
corporate and individual
sponsors. The work has just
begun on another year's
production and they are
needing everyone to get
involved in making this
annual event a success!
Grit & Grace will be
performed in early August,
but the location for this
year's performance has not
yet been determined. For
more information about
Grit & Grace, to find out
how you can get involved by
being in the production, or

Tax Tips for 2010

By John Crabtree

The 2010 tax year is over but most of us have not started
our 2010 returns.
For small business owners as well as farmers, ranchers
and other sole-proprietors, the Affordable Care Act and the
Small Business Jobs Act, signed into law in 2010, contain
significant tax incentives to help offset health care costs.
The Small Business Jobs Act includes a deduction for sole
proprietors' health care costs on their 2010 tax returns. The'
self-employed will be able to deduct their health insurance -
premiums as a business expense that reduces their self-
employment tax and their income tax for the 2010 tax year
(find out more at http://www.cfra.org/policy/health-care). .
Also, small business tax credits in the Affordable Care Act
cover up to 35 percent of employees' health care costs for
businesses with fewer than 25 employees. These two new
laws provide crucial relief for family farmers, ranchers and
mainstreet business owners who have watched their health.
insurance premiums double in the last five years.
And there's another tax change on the horizon, the Rural,
Microbusiness Investment Credit, which helps entrepre-.
neurs by providing a 35 percent refundable tax credit, up -
to $10,000, on investment in their business. This tax provi-
sion was introduced by Representatives Ron Kind (D-WI) :
and Wally Heger (R-CA) and, if passed, would help rural'
small businesses lead the nation out of recession.
So, those who qualify should call their accountant about
eligibility for a health care tax incentive, and then call their -
Representative and urge their support for the Rural Micro-
business Investment Credit.

Things you can do to
make your home or business
more energy efficient.

Temperature settings
Heating a house makes
up about half of your elec-
tricity bill so set your ther-
mostat to 68 degrees or
lower in the winter. Did you
know that you can decrease
the amount of energy you
buy for heating by 8 percent
or more for every degree be-
low 68 degrees you set your
thermostat?
Programmable thermo-
stats are a good investment,
or you can take advantage of
Gulf Power's Energy Select.
It's a program that allows
customers to pay different
rates for electricity during
the day according to a set
schedule. For only $4.95 per
month you can save energy
87 percent of the time with
Energy Select. The program
comes with a free program-
mable thermostat so the
homeowner controls the
heating and cooling system,
water heating and even pool
pump to take advantage of
the low price periods. It also
comes with free surge pro-
tection and a system called
outage alert. Outage alert
will automatically notify
Gulf Power of a power out-
age at the home.

Heating and cooling equip-
ment
The home's heating sys-
tem is extremely important.
If it's an older, less efficient
unit, upgrading to a geother-
mal heating and cooling sys-
tem or a high efficiency air-
source heat pump may be


a wise choice. Contact Gulf
Power at 1-877-655-4001 for.
a free Energy Check-Up. Let :
the Energy Experts show
you how to save money to-
day.

Routine maintenance
A well-maintained heat-
ing system runs more effi-
ciently. A complete tune-up
of the home heating system
can cost anywhere from $50
to $100 and more, but this
is a very worthwhile invest-
ment and can reduce your
heating bill from 3 to 10 per-
cent. Some companies offer
regular service contracts,
which are a convenience if
you tend to forget system
maintenance. Remember
to replace the filter every
month.

Ductwork
SDuct leakage can account
for 20 percent of the heat-
ing and cooling cost. Getting
ducts sealed up should be at
the top of the list for making
your home energy efficient.

Insulation
Adding insulation to
your attic is one of the most
cost-effective energy saving
measures. Different types
of insulation material have
different R-values. The rec-
ommended level is R-38 in,
the attic.

Weather-stripping and
caulking
Weather-strip door jambs
and caulk any cracks around
windows to prevent cool air
from entering your home.

Window units
If you have a window air
conditioning unit, remove
it for the winter months to
prevent heat from escap-
ing through and around the
unit. If it can't be moved,
put a cover over it to pre-
vent drafts.

Humidifier
Use a humidifier to keep
your home more comfort-
able. Adding moisture al-
lows you to reduce the
thermostat setting without
feeling colder.

on the Energy Tips section

tions on energy use in the
home. Customers can get a
free Energy Check-Up on-
line or at your home with

your house and electricity
use, and look for ways to
make the house more ener-
gy efficient. Just go to www.
