Hints of development

somewhere in

Freeport's future


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport City Coun-
cil meeting of Jan. 11 opened
with the first readings of
proposed ordinances for a
small scale amendment to
the Land Use Plan and a
zoning change from Rural
Village (low density resi-
dential) to Medium Density
Residential for development
of a 3.1 acre parcel about
three miles south of SR-20
off of East Bay Loop Road.
The property is owned by
Freeport Real Estate In-
vestments. City Planner
Latilda Henninger said that
the Comprehensive Plan
promotes changes to higher
density residential and that
the required infrastructure
is in place. The detailed
development plan will be
submitted for approval at a
later date and it will include
a proposal for water front
development for the benefit
of development residents.
The Planning Board has
reviewed this proposal and'
recommends approval. Hen-
ninger asked for approval of
the readings and advertising
for the second reading which
will be scheduled for Feb. 8.
The Council approved the
request and readings.
Henninger reported to
the Council that in order to
get grant money for further
development of Four Mile
Creek Park, the city would
have to spend between
$10,000 30,000, which is.
not budgeted, for an envi-
ronmental survey and other
reports. Because of the cost,
the effort to expand the park
in 2011 will be deferred un-
til the 2012 budget year.
Angle Jay of Preble-Rish
reported that grant money
for the North Bay water
main project still has not
been released by Rural De-
velopment (RD). RD says
they still have not received


approval from their state of-
fice. Jay also said that there
are some problems with
lease terms that have to be
resolved. The term of the
Eglin AFB easement is for
25 years whereas the term
of the grant is 40 years. Ru-
ral Development may issue
a "letter of conditions" that
will require a 40-year lease
for the easement. Freeport
Mayor Mickey Marse ex-
pressed frustration over the
fact that the city has spent
$200,000 300,000 on this
project and start of work is
still in the future.
Marse reported that
the Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) re-
quires Freeport's utility re-
location plans for the proj-
ect to four-lane U.S. 331
between the Bay Bridge
and Freeiort be delivered
to DOT engineers by Aug.
2011. DOT will loan the city
funds to accomplish the re-
location. The city has no
control over the design work
but will have DOT's design
reviewed by a city engineer.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
asked for and received ap-
proval for a resolution to
complete the action to make
Council members eligible for
the state retirement plan.
The Council approved the
request.
Bridget Ragan and Kit-
ty Whitney of the Walton
County Chamber of Com-
merce made a short pre-
sentation to the Council.
The chamber is working to
make resources and facili-
ties available to members
county-wide. They said that
a contractual agreement
had been reached for 2011
chamber support of the Wal-
ton County Economic Devel-
opment Alliance. They also
called attention to Walton

By JEFFREYPOWELL
In an effort to follow state
mandates and streamline
their operations the Walton
County Clerk's office began
accepting electronic filings
in the Probate Division on


Jan. 6. Presently, the Clerk
of Courts is working with
local attorney Mark Davis
for a required 90-day test-
ing pilot period whereby
an attorney must also im-
mediately file all original
documents with the Clerk


of Courts. The follow-up fil-
ing of any document that
has been previously filed by
electronic transmission may
be discontinued if, after the
90-day period of accepting
electronically filed docu-
ments, the Walton County


WALTON COUNTY CLERK'S OFFICE Civil Court Supervisor Kim Anderson looks over
the new E-portal software. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)


Clerk of Court and Chief
Judge certify to the Florida
Courts Technology Commis-
sion that the electronic fil-
ing system is efficient, reli-
able and meets the demands
of all parties.
"E-Portal (electronic fil-
ing) will eventually mean
the clerk will no longer need
to prepare paper court files
which will result in a more
efficient operation," said
Court Manager Linda War-
ren. "For instance, a new
case or document filed as
paper today requires that
the documents be manu-
ally clocked with date and
time, manually docketed
(typed) in the case progress
docket, the documents man-
ually scanned and finally
be manually filed within
the case file. E-Portal pro-
cesses all necessary steps
with two simple clicks of the
mouse. The documents are
automatically date and time
stamped, docketed in the
progress docket, imaged (no
manual filing required) and
collects the statutory fees.
Judges will have iinmedi-
ate access to the case docu-
ments and images from the
comfort of their own office
without having to call for a
paper case file and experi-


ence a wait."
Future plans are to ex-
pand acceptance of electron-
ic filings in the remaining
nine court divisions. Walton
County received approval
last week from Chair for the
Florida Courts Technology
Commission Judge Judith
L. Kreeger to implement
electronic filing within Cir-
cuit Criminal, County Crim-
inal, Juvenile Delinquency,
Criminal Traffic, Circuit
Civil, County Civil, Civil
Traffic, Family and Juvenile
Dependency.
The implementation of
this procedure has been la-
bor intensive for the Clerk
of Courts office and Warren
expressed thanks to her fel-
low employees, especially
Civil Court Supervisor Kim
Anderson.
"I want to commend Kim
Anderson for the excellent
job she has performed pre-
paring the required codes
for implementation," said
Warren.
"We are very excited
about starting this process,"
Anderson said. "Not only
will this be beneficial for the
clerk's office it will also be
beneficial for those persons
filing cases."

Pedestrian critically injured

following U.S. 90 collision


A DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent was taken to the hospi-
tal in criticalcondition when-

Marse recommended
that, 'due to the size of the
project, the work on the
Wagon Wheel Road wa-
ter well be deferred until
the problems of the North
Bay water main project are
resolved. The Council ap-
proved tabling the project.
Resident David Smith
addressed the Council with
a grievance related to the
easement for Bay Loop Road
and the location of the city's
lift station, which is cur-
rently under renovation,


saying that both are on his
property and that he hoped
the city would, "...do what's
right." City Attorney Clay-
ton Adkinson said that the
lift station has been there
for 15 years. Marse stated
that the road was construct-
ed and maintained by the
county and right of way is-
sues should be reviewed
with the county. Marse said
the lift station was installed
using a verbal agreement
and that a formal ease-
ment had not been record-
ed. Marse said the city has
already sustained added
costs of more than $2,000

cause Smith objected to the
work and stopped the reno-
vation project. In an effort
to resolve the problem, the
Council granted Marse au-
thority to have the lift sta-
tion property appraised and
offer Smith that value for
the property.
In a subsequent review
of the Smith grievance, Cliff
Knauer of Preble-Rish of-
fered the opinion that since
the county has maintained
the road and its shoulders
for more than four years,
the county has prescriptive
rights to the property.

throughout the wood frame
building's attic space.
Fire crews from Walton
County, Arglye and Free-
port battled the blaze and
continued to work on the
structure throughout the af-
ternoon.
Originally built in 1936,
the building is owned by Ed
Gomillion, who lives next
door with his wife Agnes."I'm
not sure what we are going:
to do, we'll just have to wait
and see," Ed said about re-
building.
Katie Barrineau, manag-
er of Red Bay Grocery was
not sure what the future
will bring either."It's got a
lot of fire and water dam-
age, and the building is very
old," Katie said. No injuries
were reported.
Red Bay Grocery has been
a favorite gathering place
for Walton County residents
since its renovation in 2009.
Red Bay Grocery has been
in operation since 1936. The
store has had 28 different
owners over the years, and
then closed in 2008, leaving
the community without a
gathering spot.
In Feb. 2009, Charles
Morgan, a seasoned res-
taurateur and homeowner
in Red Bay, rallied 50 local
partners, and brought the
country store back to life.
With a community inter-
est in restoring and bring-
ing back the community
spirit, Red Bay Grocery was
cleaned up, painted and giv-
en new life by the commu-
nity it serves. The store now
has 100 shareholders.

There's



still a


Miss America

By BRUCE COLLIER

I had no idea there was still a Miss America pageant. My
wife was watching TV the other night and lo and behold,
There She Was. Or rather, there they were. Happily, my
wife had tuned in late in the pageant just after the swim-
suit competition and the field had narrowed considerably
to the good-parts portion. I missed the name of the master
of ceremonies, who had obviously trained at the Bob Saget
School of Obnoxious Television Hosts. Fortunately, he had
a female co-host (missed her name as well) who kept things
on track when he made an especially fatuous-but-time-
killing observation. As for the contestants, they smiled and
smiled and smiled.
I grew up watching Bert Parks as Miss America's host.
Curious, I looked him up, and found that he was an At-
lanta, Ga. native, born Bertram Jacobson. His family came
here from Latvia, of all places. He acted, sang and did radio
and TV announcing before taking his Miss America gig, a
job he held from 1955 1979. Bert died in 1992.
Watching the Miss America pageant as a child, and
listening to my dad's disparaging but humorous remarks
about Bert's singing voice, were annual traditions in my
home. My father really enjoyed talking back to the TV. I
have inherited his love for this early form of interactive vid-
eo, and I expect I will pass it on to my child. I look forward
to watching her roll her eyes, as I once did.
Aside from the pervasive presence of sponsor Designer
Shoe Warehouse's (DSW) logo, placed everywhere it was
humanly possible to place it, the pageant looked pretty
much the same as it did when I last watched it, whenever
that was. Despite all the superficial attempts to update the
proceedings, they still had the evening gown competition
- in which -surprise- the contestants all made a point of
describing their shoes, some of which weren't even visible.
I was also delighted to see they had the talent showcase.
One played piano, several danced, one did a singing duet
between two ventriloquist's dummies. The pianist ended up
winning the title, but the ventriloquist made first runner-
up. It was like American Idol, minus the vulgar acts, rude
judges and ironic posturing.
In fact, the show was pretty much irony-free. That's
nearly impossible on modern television, but they even got
through the parade of past Miss Americas (dating back to
the 1940s) with nary a nudge or a wink. Those ladies looked
pretty good, too, some even better than their pageant pho-
tos (Oh, those beehive hairdos).
The contestants answered questions, of the "what would
you do to bring world peace" variety, drawn from people
around the country. They didn't get much time to speak,
but they did better than most politicians and movie stars,
meaning that they made their points and shut up.
About the only arguably phony thing about the Miss
America pageant that I could tell was the glee with which
the losers hugged and congratulated the winners. It just
has to hurt. Anyway, I suggest that all TV programming,
from "reality" shows all the way up to network news cover-
age, take a cue from Miss America. Despite the high stakes
(scholarships, charitable and career opportunities) they'
manage decency, courtesy and lots- and lots of smiles.
As Bert would say, "There she is, Miss America/There
she is, your ideal/The dreams of a million girls/Who are
more than pretty...." If only.

A mass shooting that left six bystanders dead and
seriously wounded Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle
Giffords hasn't dampened a Northwest Florida lawmak-
er's determination to pass an "open-carry" bill that would
liberalize the state's gun control laws. "I have no reserva-
tions about pushing the bill,-we are one of four states that
doesn't have open carry. It's the right thing to do," said Sen-
ate Criminal Justice Chairman Greg Evers, R-Baker. "The
only way to stop a perpetrator is with equal force." Former
NRA president and lobbyist for Unified Sportsmen of Flori-
da, Marion Hammer, said the bill is necessary. It would al-
low gun owners with concealed weapons permits to openly
carry weapons in public, and it would allow permit holders
to carry guns at universities and in private schools. Some
NRA members have complained that the casual removal of
a sports coat at a restaurant or a gust of wind can suddenly
expose a legally concealed weapon and put the owner in
violation of the open-carry ban, Hammer said. Evers, who
is strongly backed by the National Rifle Association, also
has a powerful ally in Gov. Rick Scott. Scott supported the
measure on the campaign trail and a spokesman said he
hasn't changed his mind since the shooting last weekend
that wounded 19. Among the dead was a federal judge. The
national debate over gun control is heating up, but pro-gun
Republican leaders and law enforcement groups who tra-
ditionally favor gun restrictions are keeping a low profile
in Florida. Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt
Island, declined to comment through a spokesman, saying
only that he is studying the bill. House Speaker Dean Can-
non, R-Winter Park, holds a concealed weapons permit and
is a big supporter of second-amendment rights. A spokes-
woman said Cannon is waiting to study the legislation
further, but he is concerned that open carry could spark a
mini arms race. Tim Cannon, assistant executive director
of the Florida Sheriffs Association, said his group was not
planning to take a stand on the bill. But the tragedy has
pushed the issue onto an agenda of the group's legislative
committee when it meets Jan. 23. "We don't have a posi-
tion; but since this has just resurfaced, I'm sure we will
be taking another look at it," he said. The Tucson tragedy
has no bearing on a bill that would bring Florida in line
with most other states, inclutling Arizona, Hammer said.
Neither will the latest tragedy tilt the debate in the favor
of gun-control advocates, she predicted. "It should never be
a problem protecting people's constitutional rights," Ham-
mer said. "The problem is not the tool, it's the person carry-
ing it." Alan Williams, D-Tallahassee, disagrees. "We have
current laws in place that obviously protect second-amend-
ment rights and I don't think we need to expand on that,"
Williams said. Freshman Rep. Kathleen Passidomo, a Re-
publican from Naples and an attorney, is struggling with
the issfie. "I understand and appreciate an individual's
right to bear arms," she said. "However, on the other hand,
it's disheartening when someone uses those rights to go on
a shooting spree." Florida lawmakers passed a "bring your
guns to work" bill in 2008 that allowed gun owners with
concealed weapons permits to keep their weapons locked
in their cars. Former Gov. Charlie Crist signed it, over the
heated objection of the Florida Chamber of Commerce. The
chamber has yet to take a position on the open-carry pro-
posal, said spokeswoman Edie Ousley. "We have asked for
feedback from our members and we look forward to work-
ing with Sen. Evers to help him accomplish what he wants
to do and to also protect the rights of private property own-
ers," she said. Gun-control advocates are gearing up for a
fight. "There's no end to the gun lobby and the NRA's efforts
to get guns in every nook and cranny of Florida," said Brian
Malte, director of state legislation for the Brady Campaign
to Prevent Gun Violence. "It would create a real culture of
fear and intimidation and it will waste police resources." By
Jim Ash, Florida Capital Bureau Chief

A state lawmaker has filed a bill that would ban
doctors from asking their patients if they have a gun
in the home. Rep. Jason Brodeur, a Sanford Republican,
said he has heard about a number of cases in which doc-
tors asked about guns. He thinks that topic should be off
limits. "This is happening here and there and people maybe
haven't reported it before and so lots of incidences had come
forward in the past and more so are coming forth now," said
Brodeur. The Florida Medical Association strongly opposes
the bill. Spokesman Jeff Scott said doctors have legitimate
reasons for asking if a patient has a gun in the house. "It
sets a dangerous precedent for the government to come
in and tell physicians the matters about which they can
inquire with their patients is a very dangerous precedent
and we believe they have no business doing so," Scott said.
Brodeur says he's concerned about doctors asking patients
about guns in the home and then allowing that informa-
tion to get into the hands of the government or insurance


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY JANUARY 20, 2011


Editor,
"Truth exposure like a large flashlight pierces the dark-
ness and makes it flee. This is the truth like God's word.
Sin, lies and corruption not exposed brings consequences to
us and our posterity.


Satan deceives by many false words. Actions demon-
strate the real truth and intents of the heart. It's time for
the American people and citizens to wake up."
Sincerely, William B. Webster,
New Harmony Community.


companies. "What we don't want to do is have law-abiding
firearm owners worried that the information is going to be
recorded and then sent to their insurance company," Bro-
deur said. "If the overreaching federal government actually
takes over health care, they're worried that Washington,
D.C., is going to know whether or not they own a gun and
so this is really just a privacy protection." Under the leg-
islation, a doctor could face a fine of up to $5 million or be
sent to prison for up to five years for asking about guns
in the home. The restriction would apply to conversations
with adult patients or the parents of pediatric patients. The
medical association's Scott said there's a reason to ask par-
ents about guns. "Pediatricians, for instance, inquire about
that in order to help them educate patients about firearm
safety," Scott said. By Dave Heller, Florida Capital Bureau

Former state legislator Dave Bitner, an "insider's
outsider" with experience at the peak of political power and
the grassroots, won an easy victory Saturday in an unusu-
ally bitter five-way fight for chairmanship of the Florida
Republican Party. "I am excited about the possibilities for
our party in the state of Florida," Bitner, a Jefferson Coun-
ty state committeeman, said after his runoff victory over
Hillsborough County chairwoman Deborah Cox Roush of
Tampa. "But we have a long road to go toward 2012."
Gov. Rick Scott, Senate President Mike Haridopolos and
House Speaker Dean Cannon stayed officially neutral. That
was a deliberate, tactical contrast to the party's troubled
past with ex-Gov. Charlie Crist and his hand-picked chair-
man, Jim Greer. Bitner polled 109 votes on a first ballot,
to 58 for Cox Roush, 16 for Palm Beach County Chairman
Sid Dinerstein, 37 for Sarasota County Chairman Joe Grut-
ers and seven for Joe DiMatteo, a Pinellas County state
committeeman. That meant Bitner went into the runoff
just six votes shy of'victory while Cox Roush, the party's
vice-chairwoman, needed to almost double her first-round
total. Results of the runoff were not announced, by party
custom, but some supporters of both candidates said pri-
vately Bitner got 153 votes to 74 for Cox Roush. He imme-
diately invited all four up on stage for his victory speech,
pledging unity and thanking Thrasher for his 11 months of
service as interim chairman. "It starts now," Bitner said of
the 2012 campaigns for president and the U.S. Senate. "I
need your help; we have 657 days until we take our country
back." Bitner, 62, served in the state House, representing
Charlotte County from 1992-2000. He became a lobbyist,
living on a farm in Jefferson County, but stopped his lob-
bying work to campaign full time for the chairmanship. His
first duties will be to help raise millions of dollars to pre-
pare the state GOP for the presidential race and taking on
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, the lone Democrat remaining in a
partisan statewide elected office. The party is also planning
a presidential straw vote at a convention late this year, and
Tampa will host the 2012 Republican National Convention.
President Obama carried Florida in 2008, but Bitner said
he's determined to deliver the state's 29 electoral votes to
the GOP column next year. U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland of
Panama City, who defeated U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd of Mon-
ticello last November, said Bitner was an important early
supporter of his congressional campaign. He said the chair-
man will be instrumental in redistricting of state legislative
and congressional lines over the next two years. "Dave is a
grassroots guy," said Southerland. "He understands what
the party needs." State Rep. Steve Crisafulli, a Brevard
County member of the state committee, said the party has
made a strong recovery under Thrasher over the past year.
Crist, seeing he would lose to Rubio in the GOP primary,
left the Republican Party and ran for the Senate as an in-
dependent while Greer, his hand-picked chairman, was
ousted a year ago and later indicted on money-laundering
and grand theft charges involving secret contracts he and
the party's former executive director entered into with the
GOP when he was chairman. "That's all behind us now,"
said Crisafulli. "The party needs to keep building on what
John Thrasher has done in the past election cycle. Dave is
very capable of that." Scott, who was a political unknown
making his first bid for public office last year, said he was
not concerned that Bitner's background as a legislator and
lobbyist gave the party the wrong image. The Florida Dem-
ocratic Party just last week elected Rod Smith, a former
state senator who unsuccessfully ran for both governor and
lieutenant governor, as its state chairman. "That 'Tallahas-
see insider' stuff?' asked the governor. "People know the
way to win is grassroots, county by county. I won because
we had better grassroots than our competition had." Bitner
said, "I'm proud of the governor for allowing the grassroots
to elect their chairman. Nothing happens in Tallahassee -
our job is to re-enforce the local parties."

College dedicates "McCracken Way"

Campus Road in honor of founding

President Dr. Ed McCracken


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2011


The loop road that en-
circles the Niceville campus
of Northwest Florida State
College (NWFSC) finally
h;as a name. The road was
designated as "McCracken
Way" at a Jan. 14 ceremony
held on what would have
been the 89th birthday of
the college's founding pres-
ident, Dr. J.E. "Ed" Mc-
Cracken. McCracken was
not only the founding presi-
dent of then Okaloosa-Wal-
ton Junior College, but also
the college's longest serving
chief administrator serv-
ing from February 1964
through January 1988 24
years.
SMrs. Ruth McCracken,
widow of the late Dr. Mc-
Cracken, and two of the
couple's three children,
daughter Lynne Vige and
son Bill McCracken, along
with NWFSC President Dr.
Ty Handy, Board of Trust-
ees Chair Sandy Sims, and
various retired college fac-
ulty and staff, joined in a
brief ceremony to unveil a
historical marker and new
road signage. Another son,
Tom McCracken, was un-
able to attend the ceremony
due to weather related flight
delays.
Handy presented the
dedication remarks, noting
that he had a bit of a dilem-
ma on how to compress Mc-
dracken's 40 years of dedi-
cated service to education
and nearly 25 years of vital
leadership to the college into
a brief dedication speech.
SHandy noted that Dr. Mc-
Cracken came from a family
of educators. "His father,
Dr. C. C. McCracken, be-
gan teaching in a one room
school at age 16 and worked
his way through Harvard
to earn a Ph.D and even-
tually become president of
what is now the University
of Connecticut. It was that
background that shaped his
son, Dr. Ed McCracken, and
the philosophy of service by
which our founding presi-
dent lived and served," said
Handy.
: Handy quoted remarks
that the senior Dr. Mc-
dracken make at the 50th
anniversary of the Univer-
sity of Connecticut as "good
vords to reflect upon as we
start these ceremonies -to-
day and contemplate our
own 50th anniversary in
just a few short years."
: He noted that the senior
Dr. McCracken said: "No
educational institution may
have permanent greatness
except it be based upon genu-
iie service to mankind...the
nation of tomorrow is what
men today make it through
the education of their chil-
dren. The youth must find
his work, feel his personal
responsibility and render
his measure of service. Such
training will promote indus-
try and create good will."
S In his professional life,
founding OWJC president
Dr. Ed McCracken served
as resident counselor at the
University of Florida; a pro-
fessor of education and psy-
chology at the University
of Mississippi; dean of stu-
dents at Millsaps College;
director of research and de-
velopment at Pensacola Ju-
nior College (PJC); and then
served for 24 years as found-
iig president of Okaloosa-
Walton Junior College.






COMMUNITY
CALENDAR



THE GOLD WING ROAD
RIDERS CHAPTER FL 1-0,
DeFuniak Springs, holds
its monthly social at 8 a.m.
the fourth Saturday of the


month at McLain's Family
Steakhouse, U.S. 331 South,
DeFuniak Springs. They are
a' family oriented organiza-
tion that welcomes all mo-
tdrcyclists. Their motto is
friends for "Fun, Safety, and
Knowledge."


Handy noted that McCrack-
en's 24 years at the helm of
OWJC --from 1964 to 1988-
almost didn't happen as Dr.
McCracken initially refused
the job offer to become the
first OWJC president, want-
ing instead to serve more at
PJC. Handy noted that the
reason Dr. McCracken fi-
nally accepted the post was,
"Because the concept of the
community college mission
coincided with his concept
of opportunity. Through
leading such a community
based institution he could
help provide a high qual-
ity educational experience
that would lead to a greater
quality of life for each stu-
dent and for the community
as a whole."
In an interview nearly 20
years ago for the college's 25
anniversary, Dr. McCrack-
en noted that his acceptance
of the president's position
at OWJC was accompanied
by a "deep personal pledge
to himself that only two
commitments would be the
controlling force during his
tenure as president: One,
commitment to family; two,
commitment to the college."
At the campus road dedica-
tion ceremony, Dr. Handy
noted, "Those who knew Dr.
McCracken, know he hon-
ored that pledge."
At the ceremony, Handy
recognized McCracken's
widow, Ruth, and his chil-
dren Bill, Lynne, and Tom,
noting that McCracken's
extended family played key
roles in the early days of the
college. "For example, Dr.
Janet McCracken, sister,
gave many unpaid hours of
consultation to the develop-
ment of the college during
its early years. And brother
Bill, the youngest dean of
students ever in the United
States, was a key role mod-
el for his brother Ed as he
started his presidency of
OWJC," said Handy.
"Also, the college's motto
- still reflected in the official
college seal -- was the sug-
gestion of Dr. McCracken's
mother, the late Frances C.
McCracken. It was her sug-
gestion that the college seal
reflect a touch of the clas-
sics with the Latin: 'Edu-
catio Optima' or 'optimum
education'. And, Mary Ruth
McCracken, a sister and
noted artist, designed the
original college seal a cen-
tral college symbol for more
than 40 years, embossed
on countless diplomas of
OWJC, OWCC and OWC
graduates."
In 1964, Dr. McCracken
turned a ghost town of old
military and other unused
buildings affectionate-
ly known by students as
"Dodge City" into a thriv-
ing Valparaiso campus from
which he initiated the mas-
ter plan and the construc-
tion of the Niceville campus.


.i.r
-- ----


He envisioned the original
seven buildings, but also
room and vision to grow.
In his 24 years at the
helm of this college he envi-
sioned, developed and pre-
pared the college for growth
in students, faculty, pro-
grams and facilities and he
built many of the programs
and services that still thrive
today -including a two plus
two program with the Uni-
versity of West Florida,
building the joint campus
in Fort Walton Beach and
the Chautauqua Center in
DeFuniak Springs, and edu-
cational opportunities for
military personnel on both
Eglin Air Force Base and
Hurlburt Field, a dual en-
rollment program for high
school students, the college's
first intercollegiate athletics
programs, and more.
In the words of Dr. Mc-
Cracken's granddaughter,
Elizabeth Chambas, who
could not attend the cer-
emony, but who sent re-
marks, "Thank you for hon-
oring Grandpa in this way.
He touched so many people,
faculty, staff, and students
during his tenure at the col-
lege. He cared deeply about
each individual, their needs,
and their fulfillment. Serv-
ing the community was also
tremendously important to
him, and he knew how to
listen to the common man to
learn what the community
most needed."
When the college opened
in 1964, there were 767 stu-
dents on hand, and classes
were held in old bank build-
ings, the post office, and
an old newspaper building.

used for assemblies, Lin-
coln and Perrine parks for
outdoor gatherings. In his
remarks at the naming cer-
emony, Handy noted that
Dr. McCracken himself said
of those days "Our motto
on the old 'Boggy Tech by
heck' campus was 'no one
a stranger, a stranger to no
one,' I hope that tradition
endures." (from a 25th anni-
versary interview with Dr.
McCracken). Handy noted
"the college is reaping the
fruits of Dr. McCracken's vi-
sion, now serving more than
17,000 students annually,
we can do no better than
to continue to live out that
model of service and com-
mitment which he so well
established."

Hello, my name is Freeway; and, you may be my last
chance for a second chance.
A nice state trooper found FEEWA
me dodging traffic on 1-10
and brought me to the Wal-
ton County Animal Shelter
in DeFuniak Springs. The
nice people here have kept
me for a long time hoping BE?.
that someone would come -
for me. But, no one has.
I have good food and am
warm here. (I even get- to
wear a fancy scarf.) But, I would really like to have a family
to love. I've heard this description of me: a blue/black and
white female pointer mix, about six years old, cheerful, fun-
loving and sweet. You can call to find out more about me
(850) 892-8682; or, come to see me (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri
- from 9 a.m. 5 p.m. and Wed, Sat from 9 a.m. -12 p.m.) at
365 Triple G Road. Just follow SR- 83 North and turn right-
when you see the sign for the new county jail. Then, follow
the signs. I'll be waiting for you!

This little dog with the fabulous face and the big soulful
eyes is Naomi. A Jack Russell terrier mix, she is quite the
lady, and has been a favorite of both staff and volunteers-
from the day she first arrived at Alaqua Animal Refuge. Ini-
tially a bit shy, Naomi has come out of her shell and is an ex-:
ceptionalltrily sweet, friendly dog. She loves to play, and really
enjoys the company of all her four legged companions. Of
course, deep in her heart
her greatest wish is to meet
that special someone who is "
looking for a wonderful dog
just like her, a someone who
wants to give her a loving
forever home. You could be
the perfect person for Nao-
mi, so come on over to our
beautiful 10-acre sanctuary
and meet her. It could very
well be a case of love at first

Golden shovels herald



new Red Bay fire station


By LEALH STRATMANN
The cold crisp Saturday
morning of Jan. 15 did not
deter more than 50 people
from showing up to witness
the ceremonial dirt turning
for the construction of the
long awaited fire station in
Red Bay. Local dignitaries
included county commis-
sioners Scott Brannon and
Cecilia Jones and many of
the long-term volunteers
who started and manned
the Red Bay fire department
for years before the-county
absorbed it.
At present a trailer is
home to the fire fighters and
EMTs who work out of the
Red Bay station, adjacent to
the barn which houses the
station's two trucks. Those
two trucks were purchased
when long time volunteer
Jeff McVay was the fire
chief, a position he held for
21 years.
"There are a handful
of us that still respond to
fires, the Red Bay station
is a combo station of pro-
fessionals and professional


volunteers who support that
station." McVay started
with the station in the early
1980s and remembered that
in 2003 the station was able
to use the purchasing power
of the county. "In 2005 the
county hired a fire manager
to coordinate and oversee
the training. There were
some paid crews as early as
2003," he said.
The push to build a more
permanent firehouse has
been a long one, but noth-
ing about the start of the
fire department has been
easy. Sonny Thorne was
the fourth fire chief, but
was around since the group
formed in 1976. "It took us
two years to get the charter
signed. We did everything by
mail, back and forth to Tal-
lahassee and finally got the
charter signed in 1978. We
didn't even have a truck,"
Thorne said. "It took a year
of bake sales and fish fries to
have enough of a down pay-
ment to get a loan to buy our
first truck, which was a 1951
American LaFrance pumper


we purchased used from
Panama City for $9,000," he
said.
Thorne, who is a heavy
equipment operator at Eg-
lin during the day, chuckled
when he said, "The county
only thinks they run it. They
run it during the day when
we all work for a living, but
we run it at night."
The new station, de-
signed by Cliff Knauer of
Preble-Rish, will be a two-
story structure just to the
south of the Red Bay Com-
munity Center. "It will take
about six months to build,"
Knauer said. "The structure
when complete will have
5,000 square feet of space
and house a training room, a
conference room and provide
room for equipment with
a second floor for storage,"
Knauer noted. The structure
will also have large bays for
the fire trucks.
The wooden structure
that now holds the fire
trucks has a history of its
own, according the Thorne.
"The fire house was built


with timbers taken from the
old bridge over Seven Run
Creek. The wood was given
to us by the state when the
bridge was replaced with a
concrete one," Thorne said.
"We also built the fire house
before we had a truck," he
said. Seven Run Creek is
about five miles south of the
fire station.
Commissioner Brannon
noted the patience of the
Red Bay community when
he said, "We appreciate the
patience of the people of Red
Bay and we hope you will
embrace the station."
Thorne said it was the
community members who
kept the station going over
the years. "They helped us
by coming to the bake sales
and fish fries so we could
buy gas and insurance,"
Thorne said.
Construction is slated to
begin on Feb. 1 and should
take about six months to
complete.

By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County Mas-
ter Gardeners and the 4-H
"Dogs R- Us" Club teamed
up for a morning full of flap-
jacks and flora for sale this
past Saturday morning in
DeFuniak Springs.
Griddle cakes served with
butter, syrup, sausages and
a smile by the 4-H crew fu-
eled up the shoppers that
turned out in record num-
bers throughout the morn-
ing to get the best deals
on trees and plants in the
area.
Shoppers eager to get
their early spring plant-
ing underway drove away
with trucks full of citrus,
evergreen, blueberry, .and
almost every other conceiv-
able plant or tree that grows
well in the northwest Flori-
da area. UWF Extension Di-
rector Mike Goodchild was
happy with the large crowds
for the sale, "They were lin-
ing up after breakfast this
morning. We always have a
good turnout, but we're real-
ly pleased with the response
we've had this year."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20,2011


ALICE GRIFFIN WALKER AND BECKY GRIFFIN RAMSEY will perform on piano
and organ as part of St. Agatha's Lakeside Concert series, Sunday Jan. 23.


Lakeside Concert Series


next event Jan. 23


From the Rev. John C. Scott,
Vicar

With the coming of the
New Year one's thoughts
turn to opportunities that
inspire the mind and heart,
and, to music. The St. Ag-
atha's organ in combina-
tion with the grand piano
make beautiful music for
the soul. We are fortunate
Sto have identical twins Alice
Griffin Walker and Becky
Griffin Ramsey performing
for us as duo-pianists and
duo-organists. Their concert
will be Sunday, Jan. 23 at 3
p.m.
As close as the black and
white keys on a piano, the
twins began lessons at the
age of five, and were soon
discovered to have absolute
pitch. Graduates of Agnes
Scott College with Bach-


elor of Arts degrees, they
pursued careers in church
music, while concertizing
extensively as duo-pianists
and duo-organists.
Performances in the
Southeast United States in-
clude appearances with the
Atlanta Symphony Orches-
tra and the Atlanta Music
Club Music Series. They are
Touring Artists for the Geor-
gia Council for the Arts, and
Performers for the Southern
Arts Federation. They have
played the largest church
pipe organ in the world at
the Crystal Cathedral in
Garden Grove, Calif., the
largest outdoor pipe organ
in the world at Balboa Park
in San Diego, and the organ
at the famous Wesley's Cha-
pel in London. The twins'
recent achievements in-
clude postgraduate study at


Valparaiso University in In-
diana and Columbia Theo-
logical Seminary. They are
the only set of twins in the
United States to complete
the stringent requirements
for both the Colleague and
the Associate certifications
from the American Guild of
Organists. Both twins re-
side with their husbands in
Covington, Ga., where Becky
is Organist at First United
Methodist Church, and Al-
ice is Organist at Covington
First Presbyterian Church.

Admission to the concert
is free, though a collection
is taken which is used solely
for support of the series. A
reception will be held imme-
diately following the perfor-
mance. This will provide an
opportunity for concert go-
ers to meet the artists.

This week Martin Lu-
ther King Jr. Day gave most
students and businesses
a three day weekend. If
King stands for anything,
in my mind, it is the power
of dreams--the audacity to
believe and achieve. I've al-
ways been a dreamer, a big,
huge dreamer, who at times
turned into a motivational
speaker when encouraging
friends and family to pursue
their ambitions. Now, as a
mother I see even more the
importance of pursuing one's
dreams, for how could I tell
my child anything is pos-
sible if I let my own dreams
fall to the wayside?
My dreams have always
included three things: writ-
ing, traveling, and family.
And so far, I'm on par with
all three, minus living in
Europe, but, hey, I've got to
save something for when my
son is grown.
As encouraging as seeing
my own dreams realized are
seeing others living their
dreams. My best friend, for
example, is living in Brasil,
her lifelong goal. A recent
college graduate, she moved
home, paid off her college
debt, then bought a one-way
ticket to Rio. She's becoming
fluent in Portuguese, travel-
ing around South America,
and gained a whole new
perspective on body confi-
dence after spending day
after day on beaches with
men and women in nothing



Happy 6th
Birthday


but thohgs. In fact, she's so
in love with the Rio way of
life, she doesn't know when
she's coming back.
Another friend, who is
undoubtedly the dearest,
kindest soul I know, is liv-
ing his dream in Marmande,
France. Working his way
through college and working
even harder on a double ma-
jor in French and Spanish,
,he earned a coveted paid in-
ternship teaching English in
France. He spends his day
at the lycee with students,
bunks with other interns,
and has weekends to take
the train around Europe.
Traveling the globe may
not have been the specific
dream King shared, but it's
all the same, His hope was
that people could live their
dreams unfettered. While
our country has made leaps
and bounds in the disparity
among races since King's.
famous speech, dispari-
ties still plague our soci-
ety, specifically within the
homosexual community. A
few months ago, a Michi-
gan school teacher was
suspended without pay for
telling two students making
hateful and discriminatory
remarks against an openly
gay student to leave his
classroom. The 14-year-old
student, Graham Taylor,


N1


later addressed his county
school board, asking them
to support his teacher. He
made one simple request,
that his future hold a time
when people, homosexual or
not, could be judged based
on the content of their char-
acter rather than who they
loved.
The video of Taylor's ad-
dress was a viral smash on
Youtube, rightly so, and af-
ter watching it, I dream my
son' will inherit a world
where people are as intel-
ligent, compassionate,and
open-minded as Taylor and
his teacher. What a world
that would be.
More so than the emo-
tional and ethical issues of
rights denied to gay Ameri-
cans, is the logical side. One
comedian broke it down in
the most basic form. "At
least with racial discrimina-
tion it made logical sense,"
he said. "They wanted to
keep them separate from us,
don't let them marry us, let
them marry each other. But
with homosexuals, it's like,
don't let them marry each
other, make them marry...
us?"
Thankfully, we are mak-
ing strides, with the recent
repeal of the "Don't Ask,
Don't Tell" policy, but the
fact that until 2010 we had
such a diminishing policy
speaks more to the root of
the problem. Nonetheless
it is a step in the right di-
rection, a step made in good
faith, and as King would
remind us, "Faith is taking
the first step even when you
don't see the whole stair-
case."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2011

Florida Chautauqua Assembly


Jan. 29 keynote speaker Landwirth


Pamela Landwirth, presi-
dent of Give Kids The World
Village in Kissimmee, Fla.
(www.gktw.org), will high-
light the official 2011 Flor-
ida Chautauqua Assembly
with a keynote presentation
on Saturday, Jan. 29, at 8:30
a.m.
The Assembly is a four-
day, conference-style event
for the entire family and
is scheduled for Thursday,
Jan. 27 through Sunday,
Jan. 30. Pamela Land-
wirth's keynote presenta-
tion will be held at the First
United Methodist Church
on Circle Drive in DeFuniak
Springs. Tickets are $10.
"Pamela is a powerful
speaker, but it's her work
that will bring us to tears -
in a happy way," says Chris-
topher Mitchell, president
of the Florida Chautauqua
Center, Inc. "The whimsical
and magical resort she leads
is where the Make-A-Wish
Foundation and other wish-
granting organizations send
children with life-threat-
ening illnesses when their


dream is to meet Mickey
Mouse and to experience a
week-long, cosf-free vaca-
tion in Central Florida," he
said.
"You will see Florida in
a way you've never thought
of it before when you learn
of this village and its power
to transform lives." Jenna
Bush-Hager, 2010's fea-
tured keynote speaker, was
so impressed with the story
of Give Kids The World Vil-
lage while speaking with
Mitchell a year ago at the
Assembly, that she followed
through with her promise to
air a major story about the
resort on NBC's Today Show
featuring Landwrith.
Landwrith has been in-
volved with Give Kids The
World since 1992 and was
appointed President in
1995. In this role, she over-
sees the operations of the
Give Kids The World Village
and all fundraising, commu-
nications and corporate alli-
ances for the organization.
She brings to the Village
an extensive background in


resort operations manage-
ment, human resource de-
velopment, and employee
relations from her 16 years
with the Walt Disney World
Company. As Manager of
Human Resource Develop-
ment for Resorts and Attrac-
tion Sales, Landwrith was
responsible for the training
and development and orga-
nizational development for
more than 18,000 Walt Dis-
ney World Cast 'Members.
This role allowed her to be
active in a wide range of ini-
tiatives including serving on
the "I Have An Idea" com-
mittee, instructing Disney
seminars such as the Disney
Approach to People Manage-
ment and Disney Approach
to Quality Service, and serv-
ing on the opening task force
for nine hotel and attraction
openings.
In 1992 Pamela accept-
ed an assignment to help
oversee the pre-opening ac-
tivities and training for all
resort cast members at Dis-
neyland Paris. After leav-
ing Disney in 1993, Land-
writh was a consultant to
the president and CEO of
Hard Rock Cafe in all areas
of human resources, organi-
zational development and
strategic planning.
Landwrith brings a strong
background in community
service to Give Kids The
World. She was the liaison
between Walt Disney World
and Junior Achievement for
five years and served on Dis-
ney's Operation: Commu-
nity and VoluntEar boards.
Landwrith has served on
numerous non-profit boards,
and currently sits on the Ex-


ecutive Advisory Board for
the Something Magic Foun-
dation and the Nonprofit
Advisory Board of the Uni-
versity of Central Florida.
Landwrith will speak
on "The Power of Happy
Therapy at Give Kids The
World" during the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly, and
1.5 continuing education
units (CEUs) are available
to healthcare and mental
health/social workers reg-
istered with select Florida
Boards. To receive CEUs, or
to simply purchase a ticket
for $10, call (850).892-7613
for instructions.

The official Florida Chau-
tauqua Assembly is a four-
day, conference-style pro-
gram in DeFuniak' Springs,
Fla. designed for the whole
family which not only in-
cludes educational sessions
and evening performances
relating to the annual theme,
but also free, interactive his-
torical and live animal ex-
hibits which compliment the
four-day program. C61ine
Cousteau, granddaughter
of legendary Jacques Coust-
eau, is the featured keynote
speaker during the 2011 As-
sembly. Guests purchas-
ing money-saving four-day
passports for $125 or one-
day passes for $60 will have
tickets to Ms. Cousteau's
and Ms. Landwirth's pre-
sentations included in their
packages. The first 100 peo-
ple to purchase a four-day
passport will receive a free,
autographed copy of "Gift
of Life" by Give Kids The
World founder, Henri Land-
wirth.

GUEST WITH MAYOR CLAYTON: Give Kids The-
World Village resort guest share a happy moment with the-
Village mayor, "Mayor Clayton." (Photo courtesy Give Kids
The World Village.)


Dear Auntie Em,


I have an issue with an
employee at one of the stores
I shop at and was wonder-
ing if you had any advice.
My doctor, not so long ago,
prescribed a medication for
me for a different reason
than it is usually prescribed.
He called it an off-label use,
but assured me it was safe
and effective. He was right
and I'm very happy that my
condition is improving, but
I have noticed something
about one of the people who
work at the pharmacy where
I get my medication filled.
One of the workers looks at
me funny, almost a kind of
disapproving look when I
come in to get my medica-
tion.
At first I thought it was
just me being silly, but then
I realized I almost have the
need to tell this person that
I am using it for something
else. I don't have that urge
or these feelings when any-
one else in the pharmacy
waits on me. I then realized
that it was this other per-
son and not me. This per-
son is not a pharmacist and
I would gladly speak with
my pharmacist if they had a
concern, but they have nev-
er even batted an eye at my
prescription.
I've thought about taking


my business elsewhere as
I really don't want to com-
plain over a feeling some-
one gives me. Everyone else
there is wonderful and I re-
ally hate to stop doing busi-
ness with them. My niece
is a nurse and she told me
that healthcare workers are
taught to be professional
and not show their private
feelings when dealing with
patients issues. Any sugges-
tions that will help me stop
stressing when I have to get
my medication refilled?

Ornery over ointment


Dear Ornery,
I feel that'you have done
a good job at introspection
in this issue. Deducting how
this person makes you feel
from the rest of the employ-
ees shows you have thought
about it and logically and
rationally are seeking a
comfortable solution for you
and for the unprofessional
employee of the store you
are doing business with.
I would normally say go
to the manager, first. But
in this case, if you want to
continue to do business with
them, maybe you can find a
way. You don't mention if
this person is always there


or just on some days. If it's
a case of just being on some
days, I'd call ahead and see
who is working that day. If
the pharmacist asks why,
tell them', but do so in a nice
way. If they are making
you feel this way, I have a
feeling you are not the only
one. The goal is to be able to
frequent the establishment
without stress from deal-
ing with this person. If that
is not doable, then I would
seek a different pharmacy.
Life is too short to spend
your money with people who
don't know how to act pro-
fessiqnally and most towns
have many different options
for places to fill medications,
including the Internet. Good
luck and God bless.

Your Tower Experience

BY REV. DR. G. CHARLES SATTERWHITE


Beware the Booger Man

BY RONNIE MCBRAYER


A friend sent me an inter-
net link that pointed to an
online "Christianity Test."
There were about two dozen
questions or so on this test
and my answers determined
how spiritual I was, and it
gave me a score (as if such
a thing could be measured
with a letter grade).
After completing-the test
I realized that I had failed,
or at the very least, I had a
lot of work to get to where
I needed to be. But in my
defense, all the questions
seemed to focus on church
responsibilities, allegiance
to a narrow set of beliefs,
and behavior management.
There were questions about
tobacco use, how many min-
utes a day I prayed, how
many verses of the Bibles I
read in a month, and how
many times I went to church
each week. Quickly it de-
volved into an inquisition of
obligation, rules, religious
policy, and list-keeping
(with a conspicuous absence
of Jesus).
This kind of testing is un-
fortunate because as long as
the emphasis in our spiri-
tual lives is on what we can,
must, or should be doing,
no matter how noble our in-
tentions might be, then the
emphasis is on our personal
attempts at righteousness.
And our attempts at being
right or virtuous are simply
inadequate.
So why do we stay it,
running like a hamster-on-
a-wheel, abiding the crush-
ing weight of hopeless and
exhausting nit-picking?
Because in the end, we are
afraid. We are afraid of God.
We refuse to accept his grace
for us. We think of him as
merciless, graceless, and
compassionless. We are so
terrified of the rule-enforc-
ing-test-giving God that we











-en.


unnecessarily keep trying to
earn the love he has already
shown us.
This ghastly, judgmental,
angry God that springs up
in so many imaginations is
a lot like the "Booger Man."
My southern grandmother
often used the Booger Man
to keep her grandchildren
out of mischief. She would
say to me: "You better be-
have or the Booger Man is
going to get you."
Or late at night if I had
to check on the chickens or
walk to the barn, she'd of-
fer up a little giggle and say,
"Don't let no Booger get you
out there." Not to be con-
fused with the Bogey Man
(a European invention), my
grandmother's Booger Man
originated with the Chero-
kee Nation.
The Cherokee developed
a ritual known as the Booger
Dance, sometimes called the
Ghost Dance by the white
man, to keep away evil spir-
its, demons, sickness, and
disease. Later this dance
was used to symbolically
keep away the Europeans.
The tribe would gather
for the ritual late at night
around a roaring fire, and
on cue a group of prese-
lected young men would
come storming into the
meeting house. They would
be dressed in big, furry,
grotesque masks and be
adorned with bear hide and
feathers.
They would act ferocious-
ly, clawing and scratching at


RONNIE MCBRAYER
those huddled in fear in the
corners of the room, or they
would wail and howl. As the
ritual went, only the proper
dance would soothe these
savage beasts.. Once tamed,
each Booger Man would be-
gin to dance with the people
and then finally slink back
into the darkness.
Of course, those who
might dance improperly or
out of step a young child
or pretty girl would be
snatched away, kicking and
screaming, and carried into
the Appalachian woods.
Generations later the rit-
ual was forgotten, but the
Booger Man was not.
Is God heaven's Booger
Man? Is he a lurking, spooky,
other-worldly creature who
waits to gobble us up when
we do not perform the ritu-
als correctly or stay in step?
Is this why we huddle in the
corner, praying our prayers,
dancing as properly and as
furiously as we can, hoping
to placate him?

But we cannot make the
Booger Man of our imagi-
nation reconcile with the
God revealed to us in Je-
sus Christ. For Jesus did
not come to condemn us or
frighten us with rules and
retribution. He came to give
us a better way to live. He
came to give us life.


For I am not ashamed of
the gospel of Christ... for in
it the righteousness of God is
revealed from faith to faith.
Romans 1:16-17b
In 1514, Professor Martin
Luther was in his private of-
fice on the second floor of a
tower attached to the mon-
astery. He was studying
Paul's wonderful epistle to
the Romans. He came to Ro-
mans 1:16-17, and began to
read from his heart.
Luther began to grasp
the startling fact about
God's justice, and that His
grace are at cross purposes.
Justice from God would re-
quire that we be thoroughly
judged for our sins.
However, grace provides
a way of escape. "I see the
answer," said Luther. "God


punished Jesus in my place,
the same Jesus who had
kept God's Holy Law.
But, when he punished
His sinless Son Jesus the
Christ, God carried out His
threat that sin would indeed
be punished by death (but
not mine). He was cruci-
fied, died, was buried, then
raised from the dead. He as-
cended into heaven and sent
the Holy Spirit to enable us
to live for Him.
All I have to do is accept
this fact, repent, be bap-
tized, embrace eternal life,
continue serving Him and
doing. His will, then I need
not fear that God will pun-
ish me with eternal death.
I am counted holy in God's
sight because I know and
believe and accept that Je-


REV. DR. G. CHARLES'.;
SATTERWHITE, PASTOR :.

sus is Holy for me and has'.'
taken my punishment."
When we realize this and '
accet' Christ as Lord, we,'
have our own "tower expe-
rience." Our sins demand-
justice, but God gives grace;
and that's why we are not'
ashamed of the Gospel!
Faith is a living, bold''-
trust in God's grace.
Martin Luther

Walton Girls Defeat Chipley 54-42


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
basketball team got 26
points from sophomore
Taliah Moore as they earned
a sweep in the season series
with a 54-42 win at home on
Thursday night (Jan. 13).
Walton got off to a fast
start as the Braves built a
19-6 lead after one quarter
of play as point guard Lynn
Paulk combined with Moore


to score 16 points in the
opening frame.
Chipley helped the
Braves out by committing
nine turnovers in the first
quarter while hitting only
3-of-ll shots from the floor.
The Tigers stayed in the
contest as their offense set-
tled down to post an 11-10
scoring advantage in the
second quarter but Chipley
still trailed the Braves 29-


17 at the half.
The Braves stretched the
lead to 44-29 after three
quarters of play as Moore
put up another eight points
in the quarter with junior
Gillian Infinger providing a
pair of outside shots to push
the advantage to 15 points
entering the fourth quarter.


The Tigers nibbled at the
lead in the fourth quarter
but 2-of-12 shooting from
the charity stripe kept them
from mounting a serious
comeback as the Braves held
on for the win to improve to
10-7 overall and 7-1 in dis-
trict play.
Lynn Paulk finished the


game with 16 points while
Chipley got 12 points from
Devon Blair and center Aa-
liyah Coleman as they fell to
2-13 on the year and 1-8 in.
district play.

Game Notes: Walton
holds a 16-11 record against
Chipley since the 1994-
95 season and has won six
straight in the series. Wal-


ton will lock up the top seed
in the district tournament
with a win at Panama City
Bay on Jan. 18. A loss to the
Tornadoes could force a coin
flip for the top seed as Bay is
already 7-2 in district play.
The Braves also have a dis-
trict game at Marianna on
Jan. 20. Moore has scored
607 points for the Braves in
less than two seasons.

Seahawks Battle District Foes


By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton Sea-
hawks girls basketball team
has improved the chances of
acquiring a top seed in the
upcoming district tourna-
ment by winning four con-
secutive district contests.
The Seahawks have de-
feated Sneads, Cottondale,
Vernon and Blountstown
since Jan. 7 to improve to 9-4
in district competition with
only Panama City Bozeman
remaining on their district
slate. Bozeman was a 94-4
victim back on Dec. 7.
The big win for the Lady
Seahawks last week was a
54-51 thriller over Cotton-
dale as the team built a 32-
22 halftime lead, then had
to hang on as the Hornets
stormed back to get within a
point in the final minute of
play before two free throws
from senior Sam Snider pro-
vided the final margin of


victory.
Cottondale got a final
possession to try and tie
the game but a desperation
shot thudded high and off to
the right as time expired to
preserve the Seahawks' vic-
tory.
Sam Snider had a phe-
nomenal night as she canned
32 points in the victory.
The Seahawks used that
momentum to crush Vernon
and Blountstown in the span
of 26 hours as they defeated
the Yellowjackets 61-17 and
Blountstown 71-27.
Mackenzie Watson led the
Seahawks with 11 points in
their win over Vernon while
Snider put up 19 points in
the Blountstown victory.
Coach Kevin Craig was
especially pleased with the
Seahawks' play in their win
over Blountstown. "We still
do some things that drive
me crazy during a game but

I see improvement in the
team. We got into a flow to-
night and really kept play-
ing to get the win." -
Meanwhile, the South
Walton boys squad got a
74-54 win over Vernon but


dropped decisions to both
Cottondale and Blountstown
last week.
The loss to the Tigers was
tough to accept as the Sea-
hawks had chances to rally
for the win only to fall short


in the 61-56 decision. Will
Rogers carried Blountstown
with 24 points, all from be-
yond the three-point line.
South Walton used their
superior size as Shafer Mar-
tin and Chadd Bryant com-


bined to score 28 points on
the night, but turnovers
and missed opportunities
dropped the Seahawks to
6-10 on the year and 2-9 in
district competition with
three games remaining.

PDL Girls Drop Freeport


By PATRICK CASEY
Despite a sluggish start,
the Ponce de Leon girls bas-
ketball team posted a dis-
trict win over Freeport on
January 10 by a 37-28 mar-
gin to improve to 18-1 on the
year and 7-0 in District 1,


Class 2A competition.

The Pirates led the con-
test 7-6 after one quarter of
play as their defense limited
the home team's scoring op-
portunities in the first eight
minutes of play despite the

scored 17 points as the Pirates won a defensive contest at
Freeport 37-28 on January 10. (Photo by Patrick Casey)


fact that PDL struggled to
put the ball through the
hoop for most of the night.
The Pirates pushed the
lead to 14-11 at halftime
as both teams continued to
struggle on offense. Senior
Hillary Harper scored half
of the Pirates' points in the
opening 16 minutes of play
while Freeport was able to
grab enough rebounds to
stay in the game while slow-
ing the pace of the contest.
The Bulldogs saw five dif-
ferent players score a basket
in the first half but leading
scorer Dannica Mosher was
limited to nine points on the
night, well below her 17.9
points per game average.
Both squads put up 14
points in the third quarter
as PDL held a 28-25 lead
heading into the final quar-
ter of play. The third quar-
ter was the only period that
both teams were able to
score more than 10 points
in a quarter as both offenses-
were as cold as the 40-de-
gree temperatures outside
the Freeport High School
gymnasium.
The Pirates managed to
clamp down on defense in


the final eight minutes as
they outscored Freeport 9-3
to hold on for their 21st con-
secutive win over the Bull-
dogs.
Hillary Harper was the
only player in double fig-
ures on either team as she
scored 17 points to bring her
career total on the varsity
to 1,022 points scored. Free-
port's Catherine Trotman
and Dannica Mosher posted
nine points apiece to lead
the Bulldogs.
The Lady Pirates played
two more games during
the week last week as they
dropped a tough game in
Graceville 39-36 while de-
feating Northview to finish
the week at 19-2.
Freeport posted a key win
at Baker 34-26 while losing
to Jay for the second time
this season on Friday night
38-28 to fall to 9-10 overall
and 5-4 in district play. The
Bulldogs can wrap up the
#2-seed and a second place
finish to PDL in the district
with a home victory on Fri-
day night against North-
view.

Game Notes: Freeport's


last win over PDL in girls
basketball occurred on Jan.
8, 1999, when they won at
Ponce de Leon 59-33 behind
Amber Gregg and Jessica
Spiers 15 points apiece. The
PDL girls are 28-2 against
Freeport since the 1992-93
season. PDL coach Tim Al-
ford is in his 16th season


at the school with a record
of 343-134 through the
Northview game. Freeport'
coach Mike Myrick is in his
12th season and has a 119-'
182 record at the school
through the Jay game. Dan-
nica Mosher has 904 career
points scored through the
Jay contest.

on the course for under $40

time. The greens are quite
fast and in good shape for
this time of year.

Jankowski Off to Vero Beach


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton High School
head football coach Lenny
Jankowski has been named
the new leader of the Vero
Beach High School football
team.
Jankowski, who led Wal-
ton to a 29-23 record in five
seasons, was one of four fi-
nalists for the opening and
was chosen to take over the
program last week for Gary
Coggin, who was relieved
of his coaching duties in
November after posting a
35-20 record in five years,
despite leading the squad to
five consecutive playoff ap-
pearances.
Jankowski, who is a 1989
graduate of John Carroll
Catholic High School, will
return to the part of the
state where he began his


coaching career. He guided
his alma mater to four play-
off appearances, including a
state semifinal in 2003 and
a 10-0 regular season in
2002.
At Walton, Jankowski re-
placed Frank Sorrells and
brought an exciting passing
attack to the area behind
quarterbacks Tarrell Bram-
let and Liam Miller to go
with the solid running of Is-
sac Jackson, Tray Williams
and Steven Myrick. Receiv-
er Corliss Stone put up one
of the top receiving totals in
Walton history as he caught
87 passes for 987 yards in
2009.
While Jankowski was
unable to lead the Braves
to a district title in five sea-
sons, he did get the Braves
into the playoffs in 2009


and 2010. He holds the dis-
tinction as one of the few
coaches in Walton history to
post a 5-0 record against the
Chipley Tigers, a feat that
has not been accomplished
since at least the 1930s.
Junior defensive tackle
Dalvon Stuckey is sorry to
see Jankowski go. "My time
playing for Coach J was an
amazing experience. He's a
great coach and I'm truly go-
ing to miss him being around.
He kept me on the straight
and narrow. I'm going to
hate to see him go. Love ya,
Coach J, and thanks for ev-
erything you've done for me.
Everything from those hot
summer practices together,
pushing me to my limits and
not letting me cheat myself.
Everything happens for a
reason. It's just a new step


in life for him."
Senior wide receiver Cor-
liss Stone also had high
praise for his coach. "I'm
happy for coach. He's a good
*coach and a better man. He
deserves this opportunity
and we all wish him the
best."

Jankowski will take over
a football program at a
school that has nearly 2,700
students and will compete
in Class 8A next season in
District 8.
Walton High School will
now begin a search for a
new head coach, looking to
fill the position that is also
currently vacant at Crest-
view and Milton and with
the South Walton football
job up in the air until David
Barron has his day in court.

WALTON FOOTBALL COACH LENNY JANKOWSKI
has been hired away by Vero Beach.High School to take over
the Class 8A football program.

Smith named angler of the year


RACHEL WHALEY, 12, is the daughter of William and
Eileen Whaley. Rachel killed this deer on Tuesday evening,
Jan. 11 hunting off OF Bob Sikes Road. It is her first deer.
She killed it with a .243 rifle, at about 200 yards. Rachel is
a great shot.


A local angler achieved
his year-long goal. Michael
Smith worked hard all
year to capture the coveted
award of "Angler of the Year
for 2010" from the Hub City
BassMasters of Crestview,
FL. He beat out 49 club
members to earn the trophy.
Smith has been a member of
the bass club for three years.
He won three of the twelve
monthly club tournaments.
During the 2010 year, Smith
also earned enough points
to receive a beautiful plaque
declaring him "Angler of the
1st Quarter." He was angler
of the 4th quarter as well.
Michael came in second
place at the end of the sec-
ond quarter.


Next, Michael was award-
ed a trophy for the "Heaviest
Stringer of the Year" at 26.94
lbs. caught at Lake Talquin.
This was the largest string-
er weighed-in in the club's
history. Smith also received
a trophy for the "Lunker of
the Year" at 10.66 lbs. also
caught at Lake Talquin.
President of the club, Jack
Bell, congratulated Michael
for his achievements and
told him that he had "a heck
of a year."

Smith is the son of Hin-
ton and Barbara Smith of
Paxton, FL. He is currently
a sophomore at Northwest
Florida State College in
Niceville, FL.

By DOTTY NIST
County commissioners
voted on Jan. 11 to trans-
mit the proposed Walton
County Habitat Conserva-
tion Plan to the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service for re-
view. Walton County had
agreed in 2007, through an
Intergovernmental Agree-
ment between the county,
the state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP), the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-


mission, and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service, to cre-
ate this conservation plan
for the beach area.
Walton County had en-
tered the agreement to
resolve issues related to
"take" or harm to federally
protected species raised by
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice officials in connection
with the county's approval
of permits for temporary
coastal armoring during the
emergency period following


2005 Hurricane Dennis. As
a result of that action, sev-
eral miles of seawalls were
built by property owners
along Walton County's 26-
mile beachfront.
Walton County began
taking public input on the
HCP at an October 2009
orientation workshop. Since
then, four other public meet-
ings have been devoted to
the plan, and two successive
drafts of the HCP document
have been prepared. Wal-


ton County Environmental
Manager Billy McKee pre-
sented draft two of the plan
to the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) on'Jan. 11 at the reg-
ular BCC meeting, which
took place at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.
The HCP is being pro-
posed as a "unified mitiga-
tion," in McKee's words, for
beachfront property owners
who constructed seawalls
following Hurricane Dennis


and have applied for DEP
seawall permits---and for
owners who install armor-
ing or do dune restoration
work in the future in Walton
County. The HCP's primary
purpose will be to cover po-
tential "take" issues in con-
nection with future actions
by the county, including is-
suance of temporary armor-
ing permits during emer-
gency periods and projects

L. De La Cruz. She has been
a resident of Walton County
for 10 years and was edu-
cated in her home country of
Peru but wants to pursue an
education in America. She
ultimately wants to work in
a medical or insurance office
in the Panhandle.
"This campus is good for
me because I used to have
to go to Niceville which is
a long drive," De La Cruz
said. "It is wonderful to have
this facility closer to were I

The South Walton Center
was developed on 16 acres of

acres originally acquired by
the Walton County Board of

the state of Florida.
"We have made good
strides this year but we still
have a way to go," said Ter-
rell. "The south Walton com-
munity has embraced this
center and are making it
their own. We look forward
to serving this community
for years to come."

By LEAH STRATMANN
At the outset of the first
planning commission meet-
ing of the year, chairman
Tom Terrell had some com-
ments relating to the shoot-
ing in a Panama City school
board meeting last month.
He polled the other commis-
sioners and the members of
the planning department
about having security at
meetings. He noted he did
this after a phone call from

rity should be in place only
when a very contentious
item was coming before the
board.

earlier.
Planning department
member Jennifer Christens-
en said she would take the
information to the county
administrator since having
security officers is a bud-
geted item and the adminis-
trator will have to decide. It
was noted that there is se-
curity at each of the Walton
County Board of the County
Commissioners meetings.
The only item on the
agenda was a major devel-
opment application sub-
mitted by Preble-Rish, Inc.
consisting of 8,000 square
feet of space to construct
the Liberty Fire Station on
4.8 acres. The site is on the
northeast corner of U.S. 90
and Beech Road, adjacent to
the Walton County Public
Works building.
Several conditions must
be met before construction
can begin as detailed by the
planning department; oth-
erwise the project meets the
land development code and
the comprehensive plan.
There was no public com-
ment on the proposed devel-
opment. Merrifield made a
motion to accept the appli-
cation and all passed it.

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann .


Last week I read in my
weekly news magazine that
Harold Camping, a preacher
without any formal religious
education and who is not or-
dained, but who has led. a
huge nationwide radio min-
istry for more than 40 years,
has announced "without a
shadow of a doubt" that May
21, 2011 will be the Day of
Judgment and the Rapture.
I'm always amazed to read
this kind of information and
indeed this isn't the first
time Camping has given a
specific date for second com-
ing, obviously making no
apologies for his past errors
in calendar reading.
If I could only believe
him, between now and May
I would pay only the most
basic of the bills and have
a great time with the extra
money. I'd waste money
in Biloxi, eat at every high
end restaurant in two coun-
ties, treat myself to days at
the spa getting facials and
pedicures' and all manner of
pampering. Alas, I just can't
wrap my mind around the
fact that one guy has been
given this advance notice,
and there is also the fact
that judgment day doesn't
scare me.
For years now I have
treated each day as if it may
be my last-because it in
fact could be. Every day I try
to do the best job I can, treat
people I encounter the way
I would wish to be treated,
take care of my responsi-
bilities and help anyone I
possibly can. That way, I'm
ready for whatever comes.
No, my butt is not in a pew


every Sunday. The last time
I was in church was the one
Sunday I ventured to one of
the- three churches in Red
Bay more than two years
ago, but I don't think church
attendance is how one is
judged when all is said and
done. If it is, I'm doomed.
Camping is in fact urg-
ing his faithful to stay out of
church and simply listen to
the radio instead. He claims
the radio is now God's con-
duit to the faithful, and the
faithful have stopped going
to church, according to in-
formation available at the
Christian Research Insti-
tute online. This website
disputes Camping's claims
in great detail, while at the
same time acknowledging
the vastness of his Family
Station, Inc. with 150 out-
lets in the United States,
saying, "His deep, sonorous
voice can be heard any hour
of the day by radio, satel-
lite, or Internet broadcast.
Camping helped begin Fam-
ily Stations in 1958, and he
later devoted himself full
time to the ministry."
While I have a great deal
of respect for those with
deep and abiding faith, I
have some trouble believ-
ing they will all be whisked
up into the skies someday
in the future. When I read
about this, I flashed to an
episode of Six Feet Under,
a television show on HBO
some years ago. The series
was about a family who ran
a Los Angeles funeral home
and the beginning of each
show featured the death of
someone who wound up at


LEAH STRATMANN


the funeral home. Most of
the deaths were mundane,
but every now and then
the writers created a truly
bizarre method of meeting
your maker. One in particu-
lar, which made me laugh
loud and long, concerned
some kind of explosion in a
sex toy factory causing hun-
dreds of sex dolls to drift up
into the air. One of the faith-
ful, who was driving when
she saw what she thought
were souls caught up in the
Rapture, met her own when
she ran smack into a tree
dying instantly.
For Camping, who is 81,
the end may be sooner than
later, but I'm stumped how
he can be the only one in the
know about this very impor-
tant event. Just to be on the
safe side, I'll continue to pay
my bills and live my life just
the way I have been. This
way bill collectors won't
harass me, which may be
worse than hell anyway.

tion's military was hon-
ored, as well, along with the
memory of Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King and the giving of
his life for the civil rights of
citizens.
Despite drizzly and chilly
weather, scores turned out
for the ceremony at the
Santa Rosa Beach Publix
shopping center. Among


them were Walton County
officials, firefighters, law
enforcement personnel, a
scout troop, families and in-
dividual citizens.
Ann Haigh, a member
of Blue Star Mothers of
America, an organization
dedicated to the memory
of military personnel who
served the United States,


was organizer and host for
the ceremony.
The 30-by-58-foot Patriot
Flag was hoisted aloft from
the ladder of a South Wal-
ton Fire District engine.
The ceremony included
prayers, inspirational re-
marks from a number of
speakers, stirring patriotic
music, a gun salute, and a
narrative on the symbolism
of the flag ceremony and the
American flag itself.
The Patriot Flag pro-
gram was established in
September 2010 by a group
of California firefighters to
honor the nation's military
and first responders, with
the goal of flying the flag in
all 50 states over a 50-week
period, culminating with
the arrival of the flag at its
final destination, the World
Trade Center site, on Sept.
11, 2011.


SCORES OF community members participated in the ceremony to honor the sacrifice of'
America's military and public servants.

MEMBERS OF local Scout Troop 525 attended the cer-

their country. "God Bless America," said Shane Heuvelink

Director Ron Howard's
movies often make me feel
proud (Apollo 13, Cinder-
ella Man) inspired (Far and
Away, A Beautiful Mind), or
just entertained (Willow).
What they have yet to do
is make me feel uncomfort-
able. That is, until The Di-
lemma.
Movie trailers have never
been good examples of truth
in advertising. The old cliche
about the trailer being the
best version of some films
is a cliche because it's often
true. In the case of The Di-
lemma, the trailer contains
most of the movie's funny
parts, leading one to believe
it's a comedy. Principal
characters Ronny and Nick
are played by Vince Vaughn
and Kevin James, noted
practitioners of the "guy hu-
mor" style, thus furthering
that impression: The titu-
lar dilemma what a man
should do when he sees his
best bud's wife smooching
another guy is classic fod-
der for farce.
Sorry, but The Dilemma


is not a comedy, though
if there is such a genre as
"serious farce," I'd say it
would qualify. It does start
off funny in a romantic com-
edy sort of way, with a four-
some of likable characters
- Ronny (Vaughn) his chef
girlfriend Beth (Jennifer
Connelly) and Nick (James)
and his wife Geneva (Win-
ona Ryder). Ronny and Nick
are inventor/entrepreneurs
gunning for a fat contract
from Chrysler, selling a
device that makes hybrid
vehicle engines sound like
vintage '70s muscle cars. It's
just weird enough that I bet
it already exists.
Ronny plans to propose
marriage to Beth in a ro-
mantic botanical garden,
and is casing the exotic flora
when he catches a glimpse of
Geneva in a passionate em-
brace with a tattooed hunk.
Should he tell his friend and
trusted business partner,
on the eve of the most im-
portant business meeting of
their lives?
This is Al comedy materi-
al, but after a few funny riffs,
Howard (and screenwriter


Allan Loeb) take another
direction. Ronny tries to fix
the problem without tell-
ing Nick, instead confront-
ing Geneva and demanding
that she come clean to her
husband. Geneva gives Ron-
ny an earful about her and
Nick's non-existent love life,
and Nick's occasional visits
to the local massage parlor.
Geneva is hurt and venge-
ful, and her dark response
to Ronny sets him and the
film down an increasingly
dark path.
This is complicated by
Ronny's past as a compulsive
gambler and Beth's mysteri-
ous phone calls from a res-
taurant company with out-
of-town ties. Ronny begins
to see jealousy and mistrust
everywhere he turns. His
amateur sleuth attempts
to catch Geneva in the act
with boyfriend Zip (Chan-
ning Tatum) lead to liter-
ally painful confrontations.
When Ronny and Zip square
off in a fight that starts in
Zip's apartment and ends in
the street, things get ugly -
and not very funny.
It was at that point that


it occurred to me that How-';
ard may have been trying to.;
make his audience feel un-.',
comfortable right along with.
Ronny. He follows with one
awkward situation after an-,:
other Ronny trails Nick to

with a poisonous toast to,:
"honesty" in relationships,:
Ronny walks into an "inter-
vention" set up by Beth, who
thinks he's gambling again,
and so on. The discomfort
piles up until the climactic
day of the partners' crucial
presentation to Chrysler, at:;
which point the pressure is'
such that any relief is wel-
come.

The film ends more or less.,
as a comedy should, with-

but despite the rather con-
trived silliness of the final:;
scene, there's a touch of bit-,

nty resident Alan
a pointed out that
constructing sea-

)ennis had been told
he county emergency
s were for temporary
only. The permits
issued with the under-
ng that the armoring
either be removed or


permitted by the state in or-
der to remain.
Ficarra recalled that
when property owners were
"scrambling" for the county
permits during the emer-
gency period, "Nobody knew
what they were getting
into."
Ficarra was concerned
with the aspect of the HCP
that would provide for the
county to permit additional
seawalls after future storm
events. "I would really like
to see that we don't have 26
miles of seawall along the
coast," he told the commis-
sioners, urging that those
building seawalls in the fu-
ture be required to "pay a
premium" in fees to do so.-
Blue Mountain Beach' ho-
meowner Emmett Hildreth
charged that the 236-page
HCP "creates a bureaucracy
in Walton County that is un-
heard of." He also expressed
concern that the document
had not been finalized in all
aspects prior to consider-
ation by the commissioners
to transmit it for review by
federal regulators. Hildreth
urged that the public hear-
ing be continued until such
time as the document was
finalized.
"We are ready to take the
next step," countered a rep-
resentative of a number of
Seagrove property owners,
"and see what the feds have
to say."
Assistant County Admin-
istrator Gerry Demers re-
quested that if the BCC did
approve the document for
transmittal, that it be with
the condition to allow final
"tweaking" of the funding


section in order to specify
that county taxpayers would
not be required to fund the
additional costs that would
be incurred to implement
the HCP in full.
Following a motion to
transmit the draft HCP to
the U.S. Fish and Wili-
life Service for review by
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen, the BCC
voted unanimously to au-
thorize the transmission of
the document.
In related action at the
Jan. 11 meeting the BCC
voted to send a letter of
concern to Walton County's
legislative delegation. On
Dec. 15, at a public hear-
ing in south Walton County,
the delegation had voted to
sponsor legislation that, if
approved as proposed, would
relieve the Walton County
post-Hurricane Dennis sea-
wall owners from the re-
quirement to obtain a state
permit for their armoring.
"It is very important to
Walton County to maintain
the character and integrity
of our beach and dune sys-
tem," the letter reads, in
part. "Allowing all seawalls
constructed after Hurri-
cane Dennis to remain in
place and exempt from any
permit conditions would be
contrary to the overall best
interest of the County in the
protection and preservation
of the beach and dune sys-
tem. However, we feel that a
compromise can be reached
that is mutually acceptable
to both Walton County and
to the affected property
owners in need of a permit."
the letter continues.
The letter puts forth the
position that permit appli-
cations for the structures
should be reviewed by the
state "to insure that the


structures were properly
constructed and will not
have negative consequences
to adjacent properties and
the dune system"---but sug-
gests that the state be al-
lowed to waive its current
"eligibility and vulnerabil-
ity" criteria in connection
with armoring applications
meeting all other require-
ments.
"Having a permit on file
would legitimize the struc-
ture and would facilitate
maintenance accountability
and tracking," the letter fur-
ther states.
The letter also comments
on "complicating factors"
associated with the state
permitting process for the
armoring applications, in-
cluding the requirement
by the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service for the property
owners to provide mediation
for alleged impacts to the
habitat of federally protect-
ed wildlife.
The letter also provides
information on the Wal-
ton County HCP and the
county's proposal to allow
individual property own-
ers' federal take mitigation
requirements, in connec-
tion with their state permit
applications, to be covered
through the county's HCP,
thus sparing them the time
and expense of dealing with
their mediation require-
ments on an individual ba-
sis.
In presenting the letter
to the commissioners at the
Jan. 11 meeting, Assistant
County Administrator Dem-
ers noted that the legislative
delegation had asked for the
county's position on the leg-
islation to be proposed.
Two members of the pub-
lic commented on the letter
prior to the commissioners


taking a vote.
Calling the legislation
"very important to the
beachfront property own-
ers," Emmett Hildreth
urged the commissioners
to support the legislation
as written and refrain from
sending the letter.
Hildreth was of the opin-'
ion that the passage of the'
legislation to free the prop-'
erty owners from the re-
quirement to get a state'
permit would be good for
everyone involved. "It's time'
for the legislature to act," he':
said.
He expressed concern
that the letter would cause.
a division between the coun-'
ty and the legislative del-'
egation and create "a lot of
confusion."
Blue Mountain Beach'
resident Richard Fowlkes
countered by calling the-
letter "totally appropriate."
He recalled that members
of the legislative delegation
had discussed seeking input
from the county and from
DEP in working with the
language of the legislation-
--and had observed that the'
legislation would likely end"
up very different from its'
original form. "This is more'
or less the county proactive-
ly providing input on how
this bill will be worded,"'
Fowlkes said of the letter.
County Attorney Lynn
Hoshihara commented that
she and McKee had been in'
conversation with Hildreth's
attorney Tom Tomasello.'
"We agree with the intent'
of the bill," she noted, add-'
ing that the mechanics and
wording of the legislation
are what the county is try-
ing to work out with the leg-
islators.
The BCC decision to ap-
prove the letter was by,
unanimous vote.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20,2011


PAGE 6-C


Beads, masks, floats
and King Cake. It's all
part of the kick-off
celebration in the
South known as Mardi
Gras. This weekend,
DeFuniak Springs has
a chance to experience
carnival season, first
hand and in their own
backyard.
---------------------------------
The official kick-off of
Mardi Gras, started on Jan.
6 in New Orleans with a
parade down the French
Quarter and even as close
as Pensacola, as the first
-parades rolled through the
downtown streets,
'welcoming all to another
season of fun, frolic and
celebration. For many who
live Mardi Gras year after
year, and who were brought
up with celebrating the
Mardi Gras traditions,
,Christmas and New Year's
-Day barely ends, before the
purple, green and gold
decorations adorn wreaths,
doorways, fireplaces and
store windows.
This celebration, deep in
:tradition, has for nearly


200 years been a Southern
event. In 1699, Mardi Gras
was first mentioned in
North America. A French
explorer camped by the
Mississippi River, 50 miles
south of today's New
Orleans. Pierre le Moyhe,
Sieur d'Iberville, first
brought the term to the
United States.
Pierre knew that in his
native country, France,
March 3 was being
observed as a holiday, so he
named the spot he was
camped on Point du Mardi
Gras.
By the 1700s, Mardi
Gras was celebrated in both
Mobile, Ala., and in New
Orleans. Somewhat more
sedate then today's
festivities, the day was
celebrated with private
balls. In both cities random
streets played hosts to
costumed citizens.
The first documented
procession for Mardi Gras
took place in 1837, but it
was very different then the
parades seen there today.
The first modern-styled
parade didn't occur until
1857, and was arranged by
a group called the Mystick


Krewe of Comus.
The floats were lit by
torches and depicted scenes
from mythology and
literature. After the
American Civil War ended
in 1865, more krewes
sprung up adding to the
number of floats and balls.
Today's celebrations are
not that different from the
ones in the 1860s. There
are still parades full of
floats and costumed people,
and there are still balls
held each year. In fact, the
celebration is so famous it
has become a major tourist
attraction for New Orleans,
drawing in millions 'of
people from around the
world for Fat Tuesday. -
Here locally, the Krewe
de Yak, will be taking
guests on a trip to those


festive cities, during their
Mardi Gras Gala, being
held on Jan. 22 at the
Shriner's Club in DeFuniak
Springs. The event will also
host two other krewes from
Panama City Beach and
Fort Walton Beach, who
will be in attendance.
There will be live
entertainment by the Yak
Attack Band, bead throws,
the Mardi Gras mambo, a
silent auction, event
souvenirs, heavy hours
d'oeuvres provided by area
restaurants and caterers,
and a cash bar.

That evening's enter-
tainment is worth -the
ticket purchase alone.
Some of the top name
musicians are some of the
most talented musicians on


the Florida Emerald Coast,
They will be playing their
unique brand of old rock n'
roll, country, bluegrass and
Zydeco for this weekend's
gala.
Their music has been
celebrated throughout the
South, and they are now
coming together to form the
band named after Walton
County's only Mardi Gras
riding krewe, Krewe de
Yak. Fritz Froeshner, Phil
Dents, Bill Garrett and
Charles Lawson make up
this eclectic band that has
been getting the party
started around the South
for more than 75 years
combined, and all are up
for the Emerald Coast
Musicians award.
Each of the band
members have been
actively involved in writing
and playing music for many
decades and nearly all have
been members of Grammy
Award-winning bands, or
recording artists.
Restaurants and
caterers such as Stinky's
Fish Camp, Dine by Design
Catering, Blue Mountain
Catering, LaRumba's and
The Eventful Planner have


generously donated
appetizers and platters for
the buffet, while various
other restaurants have
donated gift certificates for
the silent auction.
Speaking of the silent
auction, artists like Beeb
Benson, Faith Parr and
Melanie Morris, all
acclaimed artists from the
Emerald Coast, have
donated handcrafted
furniture, jewelry and art.
Businesses such as Hilltop
Productions and H & M
Tent and Party Rentals also
gave in-kinds and inventory
for the gala.
Tickets are still on sale
for $10 per person with a
non-perishable donation;
$15 at the door with a non-
perishable food donation; or
$20 at the door without a
non-perishable food
donation. Tickets can be
purchased by calling 333-
3307, or can be purchased
at the Prissy Hen in
Freeport, or the Nook &
Cranny in DeFuniak
Spririgs.the
Items collected and
proceeds from the ball, will
benefit the Muscogee Food
Bank in Bruce, Fla.


KREWE DE YAK MEMBERS welcomed guests to the christening of the ship last
January where the krewe unveiled their newest parade float. That same float will be
brought to the Shriners Club in DeFuniak Springs, and used as a welcome sign for all
those arriving at this year's Mardi Gras gala on Jan. 22.

HUCKABEE

we've done in education is
cut the budget for art and
music," Huckabee told at-
tendees at the Walton Area
Chamber of Commerce YP
Breakfast at Sandestin Re-
sort's Magnolia Ballroom.
"They're essential," Huck-
abee said of art and music
education programs. He
commented that this was an
issue he intended to focus
on, partly because of polls
showing that over 90 per-
cent of parents do not want
budget cuts in these "right-
brain" subjects.
"I don't knoyv about you,
but I'll take on a 90-percent
issue every time," he said.
He argued the case that
engaging in "right-brain"
studies such as art and
music actually goes hand-
in-hand with students' im-
provement in "left-brain"
subjects such as math and
science.
"When a student learns
music, they actually learn
how to learn," Huckabee
asserted. He recommended
that children get started as
soon as possible with music
in order to optimize their
math skills.
He identified the source
of boredom on the part of
a large portion of students
as the current education
system geared to the "left-
brain" student, blaming
this in part for the alarming
drop-out rate of one in three
students.
"We need to touch the
talents of every student;"
Huckabee urged, observ-
ing that the CEOs, innova-
tors and inventors who are
responsible for building the
"platforms of our economy"
today were not traditional
learners. He referenced
technological giants such
as Bill Gates, Michael Dell,
and Steve Jobs, all of whom
dropped out of school and/or
pursued alternative study
programs.
He also spoke of Jillian
Lynn, choreographer for An-
drew Lloyd Webber's plays,
who, upon starting grade
school, was thought to be
disabled due to difficulty
functioning in a structured
school environment---but
who "came alive" with mu-
sic and dance studies and
went on to excel in the field
of dance. "This was possible
because someone labeled
her not a disabled kid but a
gifted kid," Huckabee said.
He was asked how cuts
in art and music programs
could be combatted. Hucka-
bee responded that parents
must impress the impor-
tance of maintaining fund-
ing for these programs on
school boards and officials.
He also discussed the
importance of maintaining
strong standards for educa-
tion, even to people in the
community without children
in school. A community can-
not be strong without the
people we depend on every
day being well educated,
Huckabee maintained.
Along with high standards,
he noted, measurement and
accountability are also es-
sential in connection with
education systems.
Linking education with
economic development, he


commented, "All the tax in-
centives in the world cannot
overcome an uneducated
work force."
Huckabee also touched
on the topic of the economy
and the current $14 trillion
national debt. As a reason
for part of the country's eco-
nomic plight he pointed to
the graduated income tax
system, which, he argued,
penalizes' people who are
successful and subsidizes
those who fail to achieve.
He saw the proper role
of government with regard
to business as akin to "the
guy in the striped shirt" at
a football game, who makes
sure "the game is being
played fairly" but doesn't
determine the outcome of
the game.
Huckabee called for Is-
lamic jihadism to be viewed
as a serious threat but noted
that many people of the Is-
lamic faith do not subscribe
to this extreme fundamen-
talist belief system.
In response to a question
on the Tea Party, Huckabee
called that movement "the
most significant political.
uprising of my lifetime." He
expressed a couple of fears
about the Tea Party and
urged members of the move-
ment not to let two things
happen. The first of those
was transforming the Tea
Party philosophy into an ac-
tual political party, which,
he warned, would lead to its
marginalization and even-
tual destruction. The sec-
ond, he said, would be using
the Tea Party to empower
any one individual, which
could change the movement
from a set of principles into
an embodiment of that indi-
vidual.
Huckabee also comment-
ed that, although he under-
stands the frustration of Tea
Party members in achieving
the goals of the movement,
that it is necessary to re-
member that the Ameri-
can system of government
moves slowly. "That's the
design," he commented, and
also one of the "strengths"
of our government as put in
place by the founders.
In discussing financial
problems of the states in re-
sponse to a question, Huck-
abee noted that education,
"medication," and incarcera-
tion are the items that make
up the largest part of most
state budgets. When facing
the current reality of reduc-
ing spending, he advised
that state governments work
to make education more ef-
ficient, obtain more flexibil-
ity with Medicaid, and look
to treatment programs to
deal with drug and alcohol
problems wherever possible
in place of incarceration,
which, he said, often does
not. address those problems
successfully.
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce President/CEO
Kitty Whitney expressed
appreciation to Huckabee
for meeting with the group.
YP is a program of the
chamber which encourages
young professionals to be-
come more involved in the
community and strives to
help them prepare to serve
in leadership roles.

30A So

Tourists and locals de-
scended on the beach towns
Sof 30A the weekend of Jan.
14 for the second annual
30A Songwriter's Festival
hosted by the Cultural Arts
Association. Headed by Jen-
nifer Steele Saunders, and
dubbed the Sundance of
music, the festival attracts
musicians and music lov-
ers from across the na-
tion. From Baytowne Wharf
to Rosemary Beach, coffee
houses, restaurants, and
outdoor arenas hosted to-
day's up and coming musi-
cians and well-established
songwriters. Standing room
only was available to those
who didn't arrive hours
early for performances and.
lines wrapped around the
beach-town buildings.
From Vienna Teng's
transcendent performance
at Fish Out of Water and
rowdy closing number
"Grandmother's Song," to
Dannica Lowery bringing
down the house at Shorty's
with hbr soulful, bluesy
voice, the festival's cup ran
over with talent. Three-time
Grammy nominee Jeffrey
Steele performed a handful
of his 500 songs recorded
by over 100 artists, includ-
ing Rascal Flatts, Tim
McGraw, and Montgomery
Gentry. From Nashville,
Steele has been one of Bill-
board Magazine's top five
writers for six consecutive
years. Also appearing from
Nashville, Mat. Kearney
nearly upstaged his musi-
cal performance with his
standup, joking with pa-
trons over their inability to
determine in what city they
were and refusing to play
Jimmy Buffet for the "mar-
garita crowd." Kearney's
most famous hits, "Nothing
Left to Lose," "Undeniable,"
and "Breathe In Breathe
Out" which was featured on
Grey's Anatomy, brought a
stunned silence over the en-
raptured audience.
The patrons weren't
the only ones who enjoyed
the festival, as performers
raved about their experience
on the festival's Facebook
page. Songwriter Jessica
Smucker wrote, [I] can-
not say enough great things
about the 30A Songwriters
Festival. I had such a good
weekend, saw so much great
music, performed in classy,
well-equipped and well-at-
tended venues. I hope to go
back again next year." Jor-
dan Meredith of the band
Augustine raved, "Oh man!
Such an awesome weekend!
Louis and I had a blast! Still
on a musical cloud nine[,]
can't wait 'til next year."
Bandmate Louis Johnson
agreed the festival is "The
only way to kick off the new
year."
Indeed, the only way to
kick-off the new year for
those hooked on hooks,
lines, and singers.

and give a brief history of
the Museum, Preserve and
the flora and fauna of the
area. During World War
II German U-boats were in
the Gulf of Mexico launch-
ing V-l and V-2 bombs. Af-
ter the Allies captured some
of these bombs, the bombs
were studied and the Amer-
ican Military developed its
own rocket bomb called the
JB-2 missile. These new
missiles were shipped to
Eglin AFB and 600 of the
unarmed missiles were test
launched over the Gulf of
Mexico from the Coffeen
Preserve missile-launching
ramps. The Coffeen Na-
ture Preserve still has two
missile-launching ramps
and their associated con-
trol bunkers. The Preserve
