THIS VIEW of the DFS Municipal Airport will soon look different with the extension of the runway and addition of
corporate space buildings.


With lawsuit settled,


Airport's future


has new wings


By ASHLEYAMASON
Since the City of Defuniak
Springs took over operations
of the Defuniak Springs Mu-
nicipal Airport for the first
time in decades on Dec. 1,
2010, City Manager Kim
Kirby sat down to discuss
what led them to this point
and what big dreams are up
in the air.
Kirby noted that although
the city manager is the offi-


cial airport manager, over
the years, it has had a series
of different fixed base opera-
tors (FBO) who attended to
day to day services.
Until recently, the City
was involved in confidential
litigation with the airport's
FBO. Having now settled
the lawsuit, Kirby explained
the operations exchange was

Harrison announces he

won't seek another term

as City Councilman


By ASHLEYAMASON
What was more aptly a
20-minute agenda was ex-
hausted into a two hour
meeting at the Defuniak
Springs City Council Jan.
24.
Appointing the nego-
tiation committee, which
would conduct an interview
and make a recommenda-
tion to either accept or reject
the firm which responded to
the request for proposals for
the community redevelop-
ment area (CRA), became
a stalemate. The commit-
tee includes the mayor,
city manager, assistant city
manager, financial director,
and city planner. Council-
man Don Harrison asked, "I
wonder if we're getting a fair
appraisal when a supervi-
sor and employee are on the
same committee," referenc-
ing the city manager's posi-
tion over other committee
members. Harrison too dis-
agreed with the CRA area,
which included the down-
town Defuniak Springs area


and possibility of the U.S.
90 corridors, recommending
removing the U.S. 90 corri-
dors from the proposal.
City Manager Kim Kirby
addressed Harrison's con-
cerns regarding U.S. 90,
stating, "The final area is
not yet identified." Kirby
explained at the last meet-
ing she received direction
from the council to allow the
study to include a bid for
the downtown area, and an
alternate bid including the
U.S. 90 corridors. On com-
mittee concerns, she said,
"My leadership style is col-
laborative, not top-down. I
seek input, then make deci-
sions...I don't tell anybody
what to do."
Harrison countered in his
experience as an employee
he found himself wanting
to please his boss at the ex-
pense of opinion. He then
asked the council, "Is the
City shirking its [responsi-
bility] by having a negotia-

Paxton

Council still

at odds over

employee pay

raises
By REID TUCKER
The Paxton Town Coun-
cil remained divided over
whether to approve raises
for the employees of the
city's water department.
Employee evaluations
and the prospect of non cost-
of-living pay raises have
been a matter of contention
since the new council mem-
bers assumed office in No-
vember. The council unani-
mously voted to hold off on a
final decision until after the
first of the year when, pre-
sumably, the new members
would have had a chance to
familiarize themselves with
city employees and to ob-
serve them at work. In spite
of cases being made for and
against pay raises for em-
ployees pursuant to positive
evaluations, the council once
again elected to table the is:-
sue, this time until March),
when the new water and
sewer rates will have taken
effect.'
Billing Clerk Judy Wil-
liams, who wrote the pro-
posed 2011 water and sewer
budgets, both of which had
to be increased 5 percent
over fiscal year 2010 in
order to prevent the city
from losing money, said the
combined budgets include
around $4,000 of cash on
hand specifically for merit
raises and one-time pay in-
creases. Even though these
funds will technically be-
come available upon adop-

WCSO DEPUTY STEVE KEY AND K-9 OFFICER ELLA with drugs, gun and cash
seized from a traffic stop turned drug bust executed Jan. 20 by WCSQ.



Traffic stop leads canine


unit to seizure of $12,000,


illegal drugs and weapon


On Jan. 20, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) arrested Horacia
Moronta, 38, of Lake Mary,
Fla., on marijuana drug
charges.
The investigation began
after Deputy Steve Key and
Ella, a certified narcotics de-
tection canine, of the WCSO
Canine Unit conducted a
traffic stop on Moronta's ve-
hicle for a window tint viola-
tion near mile maker 88 on
Interstate 10.
"We are very proud of
the fine work being done


by our K-9 deputies and
their detection dogs," said
Sheriff Michael A. Adkin-
son Jr. "Our teams are very
dedicated and continue to
apprehend violators who
attempt to bring dangerous
drugs into Walton County."
A probable cause search
of Moronta's vehicle was
conducted after Ella alerted
the deputy of the possible
presence of illegal narcotics
in the trunk of the vehicle.
During the search, the ca-
nine unit seized more than
10 ounces of marijuana, a
loaded firearm and more


than $12,000 in cash.
Moronta was charged
with possession of marijua-
na with intent to distribute,
a third-degree felony. He
was booked into the' Walton
County Jail.
The WCSO Canine Unit
consists of four teams who
assist in the apprehension
of suspects and the seizure
of narcotics. In 2010, the
unit apprehended seven
suspects and seized more
than eight pounds of mari-
juana, 45 pounds of cocaine,
two ounces of methamphet-
amine and $40,000 in cash.

Triangle Chevrolet

gives Boys & Girls Club

teen center $2500


BYASHLEYAMASON
After sponsoring the
Boys & Girls Club Defuniak
Springs Teen Center's an-
nual Steak and Burger Din-
ner in 2010, Triangle Chev-
rolet's Taylor Lathinghouse
decided to go the extra mile
for local youth. In an effort
to raise more money for the
non-profit center, Triangle
featured the teen center dur-
ing a four month promotion,
donating $25 for every car
sold and encouraging their
customers to match it. The


result was a check in the
amount of $2,500 presented
to teen center Director Bob-
bie Smith.
Lathinghouse said of at-
tending the steak and burg-
er dinner last year, "It was
powerful. It affected us and
I told everybody here what
they were doing out there,
and we wanted to do some-
thing to help."
Of the $2,500, approxi-
mately half was donated
by Triangle and half was
matched by the community.

By ASHLEYAMASON
Walton High School stu-
dent Alex Brack was an-
nounced as the Walton
County Sunshine State
Scholar at the Jan. 18 Wal-
ton County School Board
(WCSB) meeting. To be rec-
ognized as a scholar, Brack
had to maintain a GPA of at
least 4.0 and show exempla-
ry performance in math and
science.
The Defuniak Springs
Kiwanis Club presented
$500 for the Walton Edu-
cation Foundation's Chil-


dren's Clothing Closet. The
closet was established over
five years ago in partner-
ship with the Kiwanis Club.
Guidance counselors aid in
the identification of students
who are in .need of clothing.
Last year, 41 students in
the Walton County School
District were classified as
homeless and 23 families
were served in one week.
Approval of the charter
for the ARC Chautauqua
Learn and Serve Charter
School to help the mentally
handicapped obtain a GED


was postponed because their
nonprofit status has not yet
been approved.
Board member Mark
Davis questioned whether
students who elected the
performance based exit-op-
tion, by passing the grade
10 FCAT and GED test to
earn a diploma, are permit-
ted to participate in gradua-
tion ceremonies. Guidelines
of the option clearly stated
students would be permit-
ted to walk at graduation.
However, it contradicts the
pupil progression plan. Da-


vis moved to strike guide-
line six of the option which
read:
"Walton County School dis-
trict ensures opportunities
that students in the Perfor-
mance-Based Exit 'Option
Model will receive official
recognition, including par-
ticipation in: all standard
high school activities, extra-
curricular activities, gradu-
ation and other recognition
ceremonies."The motion
passed unanimously. The
item will be further dis-
cussed at the Feb. 1 meeting

Rep. Drake comments on
Gov. Scott allowing SB 2A
Public Health to become law


Rep. Brad Drake (R-Euch-

Gov. Rick Scott for allowing
SB 2A, which delays imple-
mentation of the septic tank
inspection program, to be-
come law.
"Governor Scott called me
today to inform me that he
would be allowing the legis-
lation regarding the delay of
implementation of septic
tank regulations, passed
during Special Session


2010A, to become law. I
told him 'Thank You,' and
that the Legislature would
be working on a permanent
resolution to correct this
over-burdensome regulation
that I voted against when it
passed the first time" said
Drake.

Drake is a co-sponsor of
HB 13, which has been filed
to repeal the septic tank in-
spection program.

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS MAYOR C. Harold Carpenter (r) reads the proclamation dedi-
cating a new live oak tree on Live Oak Avenue this past Friday, Jan. 21, 2001 as Mike
Goodchild UWF Extension director (l)and Michael Jenkins, developer of Hunters Ridge
neighborhood (c) look on. The tree was donated by Jenkins, the Walton County Master Gar-
deners and Mark Davis, owner of Shockley Springs Nursery. The Mayor said the tree plant-
ing was in honor ofDeFuniak Springs being named a Tree City, in honor of Arbor Day, and
in honor of the first live oak being planted on Live Oak Avenue in that spot.


PAGE 3-A

ARBOR DAY

WHEREAS, in 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture
that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees; and

WHEREAS, this holiday, called Arbor Day, was first observed with the planting of more
than a million trees in Nebraska; and

WHEREAS, Arbor Day is now observed throughout the nation and the world; and

WHEREAS, trees can reduce the erosion of our precious topsoil by wind' and water, cut
heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce life-giving
oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife; and

WHEREAS, trees are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our homes, fuel for
our fires and countless other wood products; and

WHEREAS, trees in our city increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of
business areas, and beautify our community; and

WHEREAS, trees, wherever they are planted, are a source of joy and spiritual renewal,
and

NOW, THEREFORE, I, C. Harold Carpenter, by virtue of the authority vested in me as
Mayor of DeFuniak Springs, Florida do hereby proclaim this day, Friday, January 21st,
2011 to be ARBOR DAY

In DeFuniak Springs, Florida, and do urge all citizens to celebrate Arbor Day and to
support efforts to protect our trees and woodlands, and further, I urge all citizens to plant
trees to gladden the heart and promote the well-being of this and future generations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the official Seal of
the
City of DeFuniak Springs to be affixed this 21st day of January of the year of our Lord
two thousand eleven.

tion of the new budgets,
the problem is that the first
reading of the ordinance had
to be postponed until Febru-
ary, which Williams said
upset the city's finances.
Though the council will
return to the issue in March,
some council members re-
mained skeptical that two
months' time would make
any difference in terms of
the city's ability to, in good
faith, give pay raises to its
water and sewer employees.
Councilman Bobby Kemp
said he opposed raises on
the ground that he was
leery of placing additional
hardships on Paxton's low-
income households and on
those that depend on social
security. Councilman JTom-
my Mathis agreed,,but lam-
entably so, as he feels the
city's workers should have
a raise, especially since they
haven't gotten one in three
years.
"I think our employees
are some of the best there
are and I think they ought
to have a raise," Mathis
said. "I just don't think now
is the time to do it. I think
they deserve a raise...I just
think that it would leave a
bad taste in the mouths of
the people that voted for us
and put us on the council."
City Attorney Lori Bytell,
on the other hand, advised
the council to consider the
possibility of giving raises
to the city's employees, es-
pecially considering that the
most senior among them has
more than 22 years of ser-
vice in Paxton. According to
a survey of pay rate scales
for the water and sewer
system workers of local mu-
nicipalities, Paxton's senior
water department employee
makes almost $8 less per
hour than his counterpart
with the city of DeFuniak
Springs, even though that
worker has served nine
years fewer.
Bytell said the "coun-
cil members' dedication to
stewardship of Paxtonians'
money is admirable, but in
light of these facts, all facets
of any decision regarding
evaluation-based salary in-
creases should be carefully
weighed.
"I am concerned that the
real message may get lost."
Bytell said. "That is, at the
end of the day, we want to
make sure that we do what'
s right by not only the peo-
ple who live here but also by
the people who support the
city. I would be remiss if I
didn't mention that."
The council voted to con-
vene a special meeting on
Monday, Jan. 24 in order to
have the first reading of the
ordinance establishing the
increased water and sewer
rates.
The other main item dis-
cussed at the meeting was
an update from Bytell as to
progress made on a poten-
tial natural gas franchise
agreement between the cit-
ies of Paxton and DeFuniak


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


Springs. The agreement was
first broached by DeFuniak
Springs City Manager Kim
Kirby at the council's regu-
lar monthly meeting last
August. The proposition
involves a redefinition of
DeFuniak's natural gas
franchise area to include
Paxton, which could supply
customers in the city with
an alternative to electricity
for heating and cooking.
However, Bytell informed
the council of two areas of
concern she had with the
draft of the proposed fran-
chise agreement that could
put holds on the process or
do away with it altogether.
First of all, Bytell suggested
language changes clarifying
the use of the words "city"
and "franchisee" when re-
ferring to DeFuniak Springs
and Paxton, respectively,
should be implemented as
both parties involved are
cities. Much more pressing,
she said, were the proposed
conditions of the agreement
that indicated a consider-
able (though unspecified)
amount of expense in in-
frastructure costs to be in-
curred by Paxton.
Bytell said an agreement
that required Paxton to
shoulder the costs of instal-
lation and maintenance of
natural gas lines was neither
something the council indi-
cated at the August meeting
it was interested in pursu-
ing, nor was it feasible in
terms of the city's available


funds and manpower. Bytell
said she will make contact
with representatives from
DeFuniak Springs regard-
ing changes to the proposal
and will bring the revised
document before the council
for review and approval at
the next meeting if changes
are made.
"It may have just been an
oversight on [the city of De-
Funiak Springs'] part or a
drafting issue but it's clear
that [Paxton's assumption
of installation costs] is the
intent of the agreement that
I have," Bytell said. "I know
that's completely contrary
to what the council wanted.
We can have a franchise
agreement, but we cannot
embrace the burden of the
cost of installing ,liies, but
we're not there yet. We're
not even close. I'm still hold-
ing fast to that."
On a lighter note, the
council meeting concluded
with an offer by a Paxton
resident to sell an unused
cemetery plot back to the
city. City Clerk Suzan Da-
vis said it was the individ-
ual's wish "just to get back
his money" from the origi-
nal transaction, which was
made in 1977. The council
swiftly and unanimously
approved the re-purchase of
the plot.
The city of Paxton will
buy back the unused plot for
the original purchase price
of $25. Today, new cemetery
plots go for $375.

ter. The Center continues its efforts to establish a facility in Walton County. Pictured:

Bullets


and


Bills
By Assistant Editor Alicia Leonard
I love my gun. I know that might be a strange thing for
a woman to write, but my Smith & Wesson .38 is a perfect
little revolver that helps me sleep a little sounder at night,
although most law enforcenient officers would probably ar-
gue, and maybe rightfully so, that my three over-alert Bor-
der Collies make just as good a deterrent to a burglar as a
quiet house with a gun. I'll keep both, thank you.
With the tragedy that struck in Tucson overwhelming
the airwaves, overabundances of knee-jerk bills are being
put together. These bills are not to take away your right to
own a gun. In fact, they are just the opposite. They're bills
that ease restrictions on open carry laws, doing away with
concealment. Bills that allow state law to supersede the
laws a community might vote to enforce. Bills that tell you
what your doctor can and cannot ask you during a private
visit. I fear some of these bills may do away with common
sense while they are at it.
How do you know who's the good guy when everyone has
a gun? I thought about that a lot as I read about the slew
of bills being introduced in Florida. I imagined walking
through Wal-Mart, like walking through Tombstone. Yes,
I'll be your Huckleberry. Everyone I meet is packing heat
openly and no one practices. You see, once you get your per-
init there are no continuing education requirements. The
good guys have to keep training, keep practicing to carry
a sidearm in open view so they won't endanger me if one
of the bad guys grabs me in the parking lot. Everyday Joe
that target practices a few times a year, eh, not so much. As
one of our astute young reporters, Reid Tucker, put so suc-
cinctly, "Possession does not equate mastery." I could not
have said it better myself.
I think I live in a very different time than the one I grew
up in. I was raised in a house with guns; I had my first rifle
before I was eight, a bow and a BB gun before that. I was
taught to respect them, and to never point one at anyone
unless you knew you could pull the trigger or feared for
your life.
I also lost a lot of friends growing up who were not taught
as well as I was the massive responsibility that comes with
gun ownership, or how hard it is to undo the pulling of the
trigger when a life has been lost much too young. Losing a
child to a misplaced, mishandled or not secured gun is not
a tragedy that any family should have to endure. I think
that is why the bill being put together to limit a physician
from asking parents if they secure their guns from their
children bothers me the most. In another life I was a social
worker. I worked with kids who were having kids and home
safety checks were a part of being a responsible parent. I
understand the bill came about when a pediatrician asked
:a young couple if they had guns in their home and if they
were secured. They refused to answer and he told them to
find another doctor. Sounds pretty free market to me. If my
doctor asks me a question I don't want to answer, I can tell
him where to put his stethoscope and he can show me the
door. If the government doesn't belong in my healthcare,
they sure as heck don't have a seat in the room between
me and my physician. This is not smaller government. This
bill has the makings of limiting free speech, and padding
attorneys' pockets and that's about all it's good for. It's not
going to save one baby whose parents left the gun out, or in
:the car, or somewhere it shouldn't be.
We'll have a run-down on all the upcoming bills concern-
ing gun laws in our next issue. In the meantime, tell us
what you think about state and federal gun laws. We wel-
:come your letters, comments and ideas.

Editor:
The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill changed the face of
northwest Florida in April of 2010. In the months leading
up to the disaster we were beginning to see promising signs
of an economic recovery. For the first time in the past two
years optimism began budding throughout the region.
Unfortunately, once word of the oil spill disaster reached
the national media, our economy took a nose dive. Since
that time, we have seen and heard from many people with
ideas and plans to help us recover. Our legislative delega-
tion has been very involved in many of those discussions.
We have appreciated their time and attention. In a step
forward, Senator Gaetz has incorporated many of those
ideas into state legislation that will place decisive action
into improving our economy.
The Oil Spill Recovery Act filed by Sen. Gaetz offers in-
centives to attract businesses, create jobs, and diversify our
economy to further protect the area in the future. Among
other provisions, this bill offers targeted economic incen-
tives for businesses that relocate to the affected areas from
other states and spurs economic diversification through
a $10 million appropriation. The bill also allocates three-
fourths of any fines or settlements collected from BP be di-


Editor:
I am somewhat vexed over the calls for "civility" follow-
ing the recent tragedy in Arizona. First let me say that I see
no connection between the actions of what appears to be a
mentally disturbed man and the "heated rhetoric" between
two political entities fighting over the future of a country on
the brink of financial and moral bankruptcy.
When engaged in political discourse, are you telling me,
there is nothing worth arguing about, nothing worth get-
ting angry over, nothing worth fighting for? Nothing? Then
I suppose someone should pass that news along to our
troops in Iran and Afghanistan. If civility and compromise
are the solution to every affliction, then surely we can con-
vince al Qaida and the Taliban to adhere to our newly ad-
opted civility codes and stop bombing the innocent and cut-
ting off the heads of "infidels." Why didn't someone think of
this civility stuff sooner? How many wars could have been
averted if both sides had remained civil and been willing to
compromise? Imagine yourself at the negotiating table with
Hitler on the eve of WWII. "Okay, Adolf, you say you'd like
to exterminate six million Jews. The allies don't think you
should exterminate any. Let's compromise and say three
million. That way we forego a nasty world war and even
worse the prospect of being labeled uncivil." Pardon me for


Editor:
Senator Gaetz has leveled some very serious charges
against all five Walton County commissioners. He is accus-
ing them of malfeasance by "Looking on these folks (Wal-
ton County citizens) as cash cows" thereby assuming that
the five commissioners have arranged to punish a few hom-
eowners by bilking them out of funds for the sole purpose of
enriching the county coffers.
I am hopeful that Sen. Gaetz is ready to supply some
facts to back up his allegations. There were many innuen-
dos, half truths and opinions expressed by him in the Daily
News, but no facts. Of course this never stopped the good
senator before. I can't help but wonder if he is ready to file
ethic charges against the elected Walton County commis-
sioners?
He speaks of legislation pending which would right the
injustice done by our elected officials. This is from someone
who obviously has difficulty in reading bills that he votes on
(remember the Septic Tank Bill?). Sen. Gaetz relied on one


Editor:
Pam Bondi, our Attorney General, was on the radio. She
is proud that Florida has taken the lead to sue the federal
government that is forcing us to buy health insurance. She
reasoned, "We can't afford that right now." This was a win-
dow into her psyche. Think about it. If we could afford it
right now, would it be OK with her? Would it be OK with
her if Tallahassee forced this on us instead of Washington,
D.C.?
Pam's strategy is flawed on four points. The state is su-
ing over only one single clause that forces Florida citizens
to buy health insurance, which is just one little tiny piece
of a huge 2,000-plus page bill, that has hundreds of clauses
overstepping Constitutional authority. It will take years to
reach the U.S. Supreme Court, and the law is effective now.
In the case of Florida vs. the Fed, Pam wants the U.S. Su-
preme Court, a branch of the federal government, to rule
against itself, the federal government, and in Florida's fa-
vor. Is this not a 5/4 roll of the dice? And Florida must not
wait for approval of the other 49 states.
Thomas Jefferson gave us the strategy to stop an out-of-
control federal court or Congress or president. The Florida
State Legislature and Rick Scott can very simply pass a
law, now, and not wait, to nullify all 2,000-plus pages of
Obamacare as unconstitutional. This should take one page
to do. No court approval needed. www.nullifynow.com. This
is a state's duty to do this every time the federal govern-


reacted to the 7 counties of coastal northwest Florida most
affected by the oil spill.
Sen. Gaetz's focused approach on allocating the funding
to the affected areas and earmarking funds for economic
diversification will help galvanize the area from future
tourism-related disasters. We have long advocated that
northwest Florida has great potential to become the heart
of aerospace and defense research and development, a cata-
lyst for health sciences industries, and fertile ground for in-
novative energy and environment opportunities. The fund-
ing created in this legislation will allow our area to create
an economic development network similar to what central
Florida has experienced with its high tech corridor.
With the support of a new business-focused approach to
state government and the economic incentives in the Oil
Spill Recovery Act, northwest Florida is poised to not only
face the future, but to begin to shape the future of Florida.
And, as the economic development organizations that work
every day to bring business and opportunity to the area, we
applaud Sen. Don Gaetz for his vision of sustained growth.
Regards,
Scarlett Phaneuf, Managing Director
Walton County Economic Development Alliance


using a aab urd analogy to illustrate my point, but is it
anymore absurd than the idea that compromise in lieu of
conflict is always the answer?
The idea of compromise as a solution ignores one glar-
ing fact. In almost every argument and every question one
side is right, the other side is wrong and moving toward
the middle (compromise) is still wrong, just not quite as
wrong. The men who founded this nation were unwilling
to compromise any longer when they proclaimed to the
world in our Declaration of Independence, "Our repeated
petitions have been answered only by repeated injury." At
that moment they made it known that the time for civility
and compromise had passed. Were they wrong to cast aside
civility, and spill blood in the pursuit of freedom? Despite
the fact that they embraced the most "uncivil" act known to
man (war), we look upon Washington, Madison, Jefferson,
Franklin and the rest of our Founders with reverence in-
stead of contempt. Why? Maybe they remind us that some
things are worthy of our passion, deserve an emotional ar-
gument, worth fighting for, dying for and even worth taking
the risk that someone will accuse you of ignoring the call for
civility.

of his cronies from south Florida in the senate to advise him
on how to vote on that bill. Of course, he later recanted and
stated that the now opposes that particular bill. Maybe he
will be more attentive to his sworn duties and insure that
he reads the legislation himself.

I am the last person in Walton County to agree with ev-
ery decision our commissioners make, however they were
elected by the citizens of this county to conduct the busi-
ness of Walton County. That is what we hold them to. Sen.
Gaetz would do well to stick to reading bills himself, gath-
ering facts and hosting lobbyists in Tallahassee instead of
placing charges against our commissioners. He might even
take time to visit Walton County once in a while. He passed
through here like Sherman through Georgia during his
campaign. Staying just long enough to garner votes, shake
a few hands and pocket money

ment oversteps its enumerated powers. That means special
sessions of our part time legislature would need to be called
by the governor, for damage control of our liberties, to coun-
ter a full time Congress.
By the way, why don't we have a part time Congress, and
a full time state legislature, instead of the current other
way around?
Some states are also looking to counter the next chess
move by the fed. The fed's next chess move will be to cut
federal funds returning to Florida if we do not submit,
heel, obey, sit. A state legislature can pass another law
that would redirect all federal taxes from Florida citizens
and businesses. All federal taxes would go to the Florida
treasury, and be passed onto the fed, in only the amounts
needed to support constitutional enumerated functions.
The large remaining funds would be returned to the people
of Florida to create 700,000 jobs here in Florida. How's that
for a tax cut? The state has the power.
Or you could do like another state legislature, that will
imprison any federal employee or agent thereof that at-
tempts to enforce Obamacare in their state. Isn't life fun?
Bring it on.
Our Founders would be very ashamed of us of how we
have allowed the federal government to bully us and take
our liberties the Founders handed down to us children.

Red Bay Grocery is rebuilding, hopes to re-open March 1


Story and photos by
LEAH STRATMANN

The water from the fire
hoses had not yet evaporat-
ed when workers begin the
daunting task of cleaning up
and rebuilding the Red Bay
Grocery, which suffered sig-
nificant roof damage after a
fire on Jan. 18.
"We aren't going to let


this slow us down much,"
asserted Charles Mor-
gan, the principal owner of
the diner/grocery. "Mostly
we have roof damage and
cleanup and we are shoot-
ing for March 1 as a date to
reopen the store," he
The fire started in the room
where the barbecued meats
are prepared. Matt Mor-
rison, one of the cooks said


when the fire started he
tried to put it out with a fire
extinguisher, "but it erupted
again." At that point Mor-
rison called 911. "Dispatch
seemed to be having an is-
sue with where we were,"
Morrison said. Ultimately
Morrison handed the phone
off to Shelly Jones while he
drove up the street to the
Red Bay Fire Station, which
is about a mile north of the
grocery. "Once it went up,
I'm not sure there was any-
thing they could have done,"
Morrison said.
Lt. Keith Chambley who
supervises communication


dispatches for the county
offered a time line for the
events surrounding the fire
and said at no time was
there any confusion as to
where-the fire was located.
"The call came in at 10:34
a.m. and by 10:35 a.m. the
tones had been sent to the
people and the equipment.
At 10:38, trucks were en
route and we were providing
information about the fire,"
Chambley said. Fire trucks
were also dispatched from
Argyle and Freeport along
with a medical unit. "The
rule is to send three trucks
when fire is seen," Chamb-


ley noted.
"Austin and Abby (from
the Red Bay Fire Station)
were on scene first and they
did a good job. Our guys did
great, but I was still on the
phone with dispatch when
Matt left to go to the fire
station," Jones commented.
Jones said she was using
the store's phone and dis-
patch wanted to know her
name and address and the
phone number. "Dispatch
said they were en route and
I told her I would see or hear
them if that was true," Jones
recalled.
When Morrison arrived


at the Red Bay Fire Station,
the firefighters were don-
ning their gear and about
to head out. Fire trucks ar-
rived on the scene about
10:39 a.m. "It took only six
and half minutes to get fire-
fighters on the scene and
that really is pretty quick,"
Chambley pointed out.
There were no custom-
ers in the restaurant or the
store when the fire broke
out. Two employees and a
delivery person were the
only ones inside the store.
Leah Stratmann may
be reached via leahwrites@
gmail.com.


THIS IS WHERE the fire broke out at the Red Bay Gro-
cery. Fire fighters concentrated heavily on making sure
no fire remained in the attic after the flames were extin-
guished.


SURVEYING THE damage, Charles Morgan, far right,
and some of the Red Bay Grocery shareholders watch as
fire fighters finish checking out the scene of the fire. Morgan
hopes to have the store open again by March 1.


WHILE FIRE took out most of the area where barbecued
meats were prepared, the damage to the main dining room
and store area is not severe.


CHELCO donates Kill-a-Watt devices to libraries


For those who have ever
wondered how many watts
their television uses, they
can find out at the local li-
brary.

Choctawhatchee Elec-
tric Cooperative (CHELCO)
has recently donated Kill-
a-Watt devices to libraries
throughout Walton County
and to Niceville and Crest-


view libraries in Okaloosa
County.
Library patrons can check
out the Kill-a-Watt devices
just the same as they do
books.
The goal is to help resi-
dents measure their energy
consumption and become
more knowledgeable about
what adds to their power
bills.


The Kill-a-Watt mea-
sures energy consumption of
household appliances by the
kilowatt hour the same
unit of measure that is on
power bills.
"The Kill-a-Watt detec-
tors will show consumers
how much it costs to leave
things like phone chargers,
computers, televisions and
the like plugged in," Manag-


er of Marketing Christopher
Cherenzia says.
"This is like putting a
price tag on something you
can't see, because it shows
how much energy can be
wasted by leaving things
plugged in."
The Kill-a-Watt is used
much like an adapter. An
appliance is plugged into the
Kill-a-Watt, and it is then


plugged into a wall outlet.
For accuracy, the Kill-a-
Watt should be plugged in
for 24 hours. "We hope con-
sumers, whether they are
CHELCO members or not,
will use this to understand

AACFCU accepting applications


for 2011 scholarship program


Army Aviation Cen-
ter Federal Credit Union
(AACFCU)is now accept-
ing applications from 2011
graduating high school se-
niors for its scholarship pro-
gram.

Ten $1,000 scholar-
ships will be given away
in April 2011 to deserving
high school seniors from the


Ponce de Leon Elemen-
tary School is proud to have
a Chess Club. Jon-Marcel
Winchester, a graduate of
Ponce de Leon Elementary
and currently enrolled as a
seventh grade student at
Ponce de Leon High School
formed this Chess Club as
part of his FCCLA project.
There is a lot of inter-
est; usually the class is full
with six to eight, third to
fifth graders attending.
Chess is known to help
students with math skills.
Since chess requires prob-
lem solving as well as
math, it makes sense that
a chess student will have a
"leg up" at math problem
solving. Chess is a good
way to get a mental work-
out. Research indicates
that chess improves the
ability to think ahead as
well as other problem solv-
ing skills.
Jon-Marcel started play-
ing chess at six years of
age. He learned the skills
necessary to play on www.


AACFCU service area.

Applicants must be mem-
bers of AACFCU to be eli-
gible for the scholarship.
If they are not currently
members, they may join
the credit union. They must
show outstanding academ-
ics, good communication
skills and leadership. Ap-
plications must be filled out


chesskids.com, a free web-
site as well as playing with
his father. He also played
in DeFuniak Springs at the
library with Dan Owens at
his chess club. Jon-Marcel
enjoys teaching during the
after school WINGS pro-
gram on Thursday after-
noon at 4 p.m.
Family, Career and

tional career and technical

The application and
complete instructions can
be picked up at any of the

site at www.aacfcu.com. Ap-
plications are due no later
than March 25. Any applica-
tions postmarked after that
date will be ineligible.

the result of a lawsuit filed
by former FBO Jonathan
punn. Dunn was leased cer-
tain premises of the airport
and provided refueling and
ininor services for pilots and
i lanes, and earned revenue
from the services offered.
The lawsuit's unforeseen
origin began in 2001 when
the City entered into an
agreement with AeroFX. "In
2006, [AeroFX] came to the
City Council with request
to sell their stock to another
individual who was inter-
ested in taking over," Kirby
recalled, "Jonathan Dunn."
the council approved the
transaction and according to
Kirby the relationship with
Dunn began well. "He was
very energetic, and brought
Slot of good ideas. We were
all excited about the possi-
ilities" she said.
SHowever, a year-and-
a-half later, Dunn started
questioningg the lease, which
eventually led to a contract
dispute. To be exact, he ques-

tioned the leased premises
as defined under the lease,
proposing it included more
than the terminal building.
"It was always our belief
and opinion that the leased
premises was the terminal
building," Kirby said. "It was
his belief that if the leased
premises was a larger area,
he would be due back rent
for the T-hangars [which]
house smaller, general avia-
tion planes."
Kirby and Dunn attempt-
ed to renegotiate the lease,
but negotiations failed. The
City soon received a notice
that Dunn's intent was to
receive back rent on T-han-
gars constructed in 2004,
before he was even the FBO.
"We were served with a law-
suit, and tried an informal
negotiation and that failed"
Kirby recalled.
The City's position over
the dispute was two-fold.
First, "It was our opinion
and the Florida Department
of Transportation's (FDOT)

opinion, that whether those
were leased premises or not,
he would not be entitled to
back rent because those
[hangars] were built with
public dollars (grant funds)
to help bring in his custom-
er base and that's how he
grows his business" Kirby
stated.
Second, "In speaking
with the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) and
FDOT representatives, who
were updated throughout
the process, the concern
was raised that if the lease
was perceived as a larger
area than just the terminal
building there could be the
possibility that the airport
could be viewed as a private
airport, not a public airport.
And if pubic dollars have
been invested in' a private
airport, then there would be
no more funding from FDOT
or FAA, which in essence
would cease, any future de-
velopment of the airport."
The city's remaining
contract with Dunn at that
time was 14 years, which
brought them to the ques-
tion: Do we take the risk of
it being viewed as a private
airport and receive no more


future funding for at least
14.years, or does the City
buyout Dunn's contract and
takeover?
"The timing was right
for us to consider the City
buying out his lease" Kirby
said. "With all of the risks to
consider and potential ben-
efits, the end result was to
buyout the lease [at a price
of $685,000]."
The buyout came at the
same time the City was up-
dating the airport master
plan and it now looks upon
the possibilities with new
eyes.
Included in the plans are
an East-West runway ex-
tension to 5,000 feet making
it suitable for larger plane
landings, more hangars and
corporate space, a paved ac-
cess road, and possible hotel
and restaurant. The cur-
rent Gene Hurley athletic
complex, which is being re-
located to land adjacent to
the Wee Care Park, may be
incorporated into the mas-
ter plan as well.
Kirby clarified the North-
South dirt runway will not
be paved or extended be-
cause at a user's meeting,
the pilots requested to keep
it dirt, and extending is im-
possible due to topography
as well as an Eglin air space
violation.

With the council's ap-
proval, former City special
projects coordinator Kelly
Schulz has been assigned
the role of interim airport
manager and Scott Single-
tary was hired as line tech-
nician. Kirby praised both,
saying Schulz's prior airport
experience has served the
City well and "the pilots love
her" and "[Singletary] has a
lot of knowledge, loves avia-
tion, and is doing a great
job."
On Feb. 15, an airport
users meeting will be sched-
uled to discuss what they
would like to see in the fu-


ture of the airport. An open
house will follow the meet-
ing. On potential job cre-
ation, Kirby said, "We're re-
ally excited about what can
happen."

For those who have only
seen the airport from U.S.
90, Kirby and Singletary in-
vite you to sit on the swings
one afternoon and watch
the planes come in (a Kirby
family tradition on Sunday
afternoons with a Sonic
blast). For those who want
to do more than watch the
planes, flying lessons will be
offered in the near future.

tion committee?"
Mayor Pro-Tempore
Huffman suggested Harri-
son take a seat on the com-
mittee, which he declined.
Harrison in turned moved
the council dissolve the com-
mittee and assume negotia-
tions. The motion failed 3-2,
only Harrison and Wayne
Graham in favor.
Harrison stated he was
not convinced the City
needed to spend money on a
study for the CRA, and em-
phasized the CRA would re-
quire the City to designate
at least half of all future ad
valorem tax revenues from
the CRA area to the trust
fund for projects within
the CRA area for a possible
maximum of 40 years.
Kirby noted the study for
the CRA was required by
Florida statute. City Plan-
ner Greg Scoville explained
the procedure for the estab-
lishment of a CRA includes
a findings of necessity study,
resolution, plan of action,
and trust fund.
Scoville clarified in a
phone interview with The
Herald, "If the CRA started
today, in the future, any in-
crease in ad valorem taxes
from the designated CRA
area would go to the trust
fund for projects within the
CRA area."
City Marshal Mark
Weeks offered his services
to solve the negotiation
committee stalemate, vol-
unteering to take a place on
the committee. Councilman
James Coffield moved to
reappoint the committee as
the mayor, city marshal, as-
sistant city manager, finan-
cial director, and planning
director, eliminating the
city manager's seat on the
committee therefore remov-
ing the supervisor-employee
concern. The motion died for
lack of a second.
Harrison then moved to
appoint the original com-
mittee, including the city
manager, but narrow the
scope of the CRA to only the
downtown district.
Huffman said, "I don't see
what harm it does to look at
the rest of our city...We're
saying [the Highway 90 cor-
ridor businesses aren't] im-
portant."
The motion passed 3-2,
Huffman and Henry Ennis
opposing.
The council unanimous-
ly approved road closure

ing the retirement of former
administrator Ronnie Bell,
and Siegler had then been
confirmed as administrator
in March 2010.
County Commission
Chairman Larry Jones said
he was proposing the reas-
signment after careful dis-
cussion with the Siegler and
other staff members about
their skills sets and the di-
rection of the county.
Jones said those discus-
sions for him had under-
scored Siegler's "tremen-
dous" value to the county
and had resulted in his con-
clusion that Siegler should
be reassigned to lead Walton
County Public Works again.
Jones noted that respon-
sibilities assigned to public
works have increased, with


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


25 percent more person-
nel working for the depart-
ment than previously. He
envisioned lobbying for the
county's infrastructure and
transportation needs to be
among the many duties on
Siegler's plate as public
works director.
"We look forward to great
things from Mr. Siegler
leading our public works de-
partment," Jones said.
Jones hinted that Siegler,
who was sitting at the end of
the meeting table, would be
more than willing to under-
take the change in responsi-
bilities. "Look at the smile
on his face," he remarked.
Siegler indicated his will-
ingness "to serve in any
way a long as our county
remains progressive." "God


bless you," he told the com-
missioners.
"Thank you for your com-
mitment to the county,"
Jones responded.
Jones proposed that "in
the coming weeks" the coun-
ty "come up with the best
means of naming an admin-
istrator."
Jones proposal, includ-
ing Siegler's transition back
into the public works direc-
tor position, was approved
by unanimous vote.

Starsky Harrell is cur-
rent public works director,
having been asked to serve
as interim director to fill in
for Siegler in the summer
of 2009 and having been
named department director
in fall 2010.

Man claims pocket-girlfriend defense



Two arrested for



Methamphetamine



in separate stops


The DeFuniak Springs Po-
lice arrested two subjects in
possession of Methamphet-
amine on two separate traf-
fic stops. Both traffic stops
took place at around 11:30
a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 20,
2011. The first vehicle was
stopped on U.S. 90 West
and then pulled into a local
business parking lot. The
driver of that vehicle, Timo-
thy Scott Morris of Samson,
Ala., was reported to have
jumped out of his car, where
officers observed a high
powered rifle and ammuni-
tion in the backseat. While
conducting an investigation
with the driver, officers lo-
cated methamphetamine.
Morris had told officers that


"his girlfriend" had placed scene.
the methamphetamine in Both Morris and Jones


his pocket.
The second vehicle, driv-
en by Felecia Darlene Jones
(Morris' girlfriend) of De-
Funiak Springs, Fla., was
stopped just west of the first
stop, near U.S. 90 West and
Shoemaker Drive. After the
DeFuniak Springs Police
K-9 gave a positive alert
on the vehicle, a search
was conducted and did re-
veal Methamphetamine
which was concealed inside
of Jones' purse. Due to the
presence of a small child in
the vehicle with Jones, the
Department of Children
and Family Services was
requested to respond to the


were arrested and trans-
ported to the Walton County
Jail. Morris is charged with
'Possession of Methamphet-
amine and Possession of a
Firearm in the Commission
of a Felony. Jones is charged
with Possession of Metham-
phetamine and Child Ne-
glect without Causing Great
Harm.
Subsequent investigation
revealed that both suspects
had used Methamphetamine
the night before at a local
motel. The case is pending
further investigation and
no additional information is
available at this time.


Convicted felon arrested


on multiple charges


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) has ar-
rested Patrick Ethan John-
son, 46, of Fort Walton
Beach, Fla., for possession
of a firearm or ammunition
by a convicted felon and pos-
session of a controlled sub-
stance.
Johnson contacted the
WCSO at approximately
11:42 p.m. on Jan. 24, alleg-
ing that his vehicle was be-


ing monitored by a govern-
ment agency. Deputies were
dispatched to Johnson's lo-
cation at 10685 West U.S.
98, where he granted them
access to search his vehicle
for suspicious materials.
Deputies conducted a
criminal history record
check on Johnson after un-
spent ammunition was dis-
covered inside his vehicle.
He was subsequently ar-


rested and transported to
the Walton County Jail.
Johnson faces additional
charges after deputies re-
covered a handgun from
inside his vehicle and a cor-
rectional officer recovered a
powdery substance from his
wallet. The substance field-
tested positive for metham-
phetamines.
The investigation is'ac-
tive and ongoing.

Peacemaker visits Panama City Marina


Story and photos by
JEFFREYPOWELL
Any trip made to the Pan-
ama City Marina will allow
visitors to see a wide vari-
ety of sailing vessels. A trip
made from now until the
end of January will provide
a rare treat indeed for sail-
ing enthusiasts. As soon as
visitors begin to approach
the marina the three masts
of the tall ship Peacemaker
can be seen from afar.
The 150-foot Peacemaker
is the flagship of the Twelve
Tribes, which sails through-
out the United States
spreading their beliefs of a
peaceful life and goodwill.
The group was originated
as a tribal people in 12 dif-
ferent geographical areas
of the world: four regions of
the U.S., Canada, France,
Spain, Germany, England,
Brazil, Argentina and Aus-
tralia. Twelve Tribes mem-
bers use the ship to present
a floating microcosm of the
life they live in their own
communities.
"We home school our chil-
dren and allow them to ap-
prentice on the ship when
they come of age," said co-
captain David Burleigh.
"We also just enjoy travel-
ing and meeting people. We
share our beliefs with those
that ask. We have stayed in
U.S. waters and enjoy sail-
ing the Peacemaker but it is
hard work.
The Peacemaker was built
in .squtbern Brazil by an
Italia' fAimily of boat. build-
ers using traditional meth-


ods and the finest tropical
hardwoods. The ship was
first launched in 1989 as
the Avany, a name chosen
by her designer and origi-
nal owner, Frank Walker, a
Brazilian industrialist. He
originally planned to char-
ter the vessel but became
sidetracked and she sat for
some time before Twelve
Tribes members rescued
her from a port in Savan-
nah, Ga. The Peacemaker
set sail in the spring of 2007


on a trip to bring people into
peace with their creator and
with one another.
The Peacemaker's crew
finances their adventures
through donations and the
hard work of their mem-
bers. Occasionally members
will take jobs in port to earn
a few extra dollars. Some
of the crew make pottery
on the ship which is sold to
visitors in port. All of the
stoneware is thrown, glazed
and fired on board.


THE 150-FOOT PEACEMAKER is currently moored at
the Panama City Marina.


"We enjoy making our
pottery and offering it to the
public," said crew-member
Neshef Burleigh. "We are
also very appreciative of the
visitors, they are generally


very generous. Of course
this type of lifestyle has its
joys and struggles."
The next stop for the
Peacemaker is Mobile,
where she will be removed


from the water and cleaned.
There will also be preventa-
tive maintenance performed
during this stop.
For more info see www.
peacemakermarine.com


THE PEACEMAKER'S WHEELHOUSE exemplifies the fine woodwork throughout the
ship.


MANY MODERN NAVIGATIONAL TOOLS are available to the captain of the vessel.

CHUCK HINSON
You would have thought
that Bourbon Street and
the New Orleans French
Quarter had descended on
DeFuniak Springs as more
than 120 guests from all
over the panhandle joined
Walton County's Krewe de
Yak for a Mardi Gras kick-
off gala. From ball gowns,
to scary costumes, those in
attendance pulled out all
the stops and tried to outdo
each other for this charita-
ble cause.
The inaugural krewe ball,
sponsored by the Krewe de
Yak, was an amazing eve-
ning of fine food, live Mardi
Gras music, dancing and


charity. The event raised
money and hundreds of cans
of food for the Muskogee In-
dian Food Bank in Bruce,
Fla.
Taking place at the Shri-
ner's Hall in DeFuniak
Springs, the krewe trans-
formed the clubhouse into a
grand ballroom that would
be found in any major city,
with flags, beads, masks,
an array of arrangements,
lighting, and other decora-
tions. Those attending were
mesmerized by what had
been done to the facility.
Guests including mem-
bers of the Krewe of St.
Andrews, the Krewe of Par-
rot Heads and the Krewe
of Masques, were in atten-


IT WAS ALL SMILES AND PAPER NAPKINS as guests
hit the dance floor and danced to the Mardi Gras Mambo.
It is a traditional line dance that is played during carnival
season.


dance for the evening, bring-
ing numerous canned good
items, dressing to impress,
and staying in area hotels.
The visiting krewes hailed
from Panama City, Panama
City Beach and Fort Wal-
ton.
Guest were presented
with a lavish buffet sup-
plied by krewe members and
food donated from restau-
rants and caterers includ-
ing Dine by Design Cater-
ing, The Eventful Planner,
Blue Mountain Catering
and Stinky's on the Beach.
From crawfish stuffed gar-
lic mushrooms and Louisi-
ana crab cakes to king cake,
bourbon meatballs and pork
loin, no one left hungry or
disappointed.
What carnival ball or gala
would be complete without
doing the Mardi Gras Mam-
bo? This classic group line
dance was made even better
with the live sounds of the
Yak Attack (no relation to
the Krewe de Yak, but made
up of some krewe members).
One of the newest and hot-
test bands on the Emerald
Coast today, the band con-
sisted of drummer Charles
Lawson, guitarists Fritz
Froeshner, saxophonist Fly
Dents and bassist Bill Gar-
rett.
The band was the hit
of the evening and their
sounds of rhythm and blues,
rock-n-roll and Zydeco kept
the dance floor packed and
kept people wanting more.
Throughout the evening,
many guests bid on silent
auction items that were do-
nated from various artists


like jeweler Eric Day, jewel-
er Faith Parr, artists Mela-
nie Morris and Beeb Benson,
and wine baskets donated
by the Chautauqua Winery,
Hilltop Productions, and
various krewe members.
The Krewe de Yak was
honored by other attend-
ing krewes from around the
panhandle. With the arrival
of the other krewes, their
royal courts were honored
and acknowledged as they
entered, and with them at-
tending, opened many doors
for the local krewe to attend
other krewe balls, events
and brought high visibility
to DeFuniak Springs.
Not only did the krewe
raise money for their chari-
ties and organization, and
food for the Muskogee In-
dian Tribe Food Bank, it
also brought money into the
local economy with many
out-of-town guests staying
in hotels, shopping and eat-
ing at various restaurants
throughout the weekend.


The Jan. 22 Krewe de
Yak Gala was the first event
of many for the krewe dur-
ing the Mardi Gras season
that culminates on March
8. The krewe will be riding
in the Krewe of St. Andrews
parade on Feb. 26 in Pan-
ama City, and then in the


Krewe of Dominique Youx
on March 3, in Panama City
Beach.

OTHER KREWES, INCLUDING THESE guests from
the Tallahassee parading society, also made the trip to De-
Funiak Springs to see how Walton County and the local
krewes celebrate Mardi Gras.


KREWE DE YAK MEMBERS pose a second for a quick
picture, while waiting to get back on the dance floor.


NOT ALL WERE ABOUT PARTYING ALL NIGHT as
the two gentlemen discussed some very important issues.
Probably arguing to see who wore the goofiest hat.


NEARLY ALL 120 GUESTS arrived in costume and
masks for the ball. Many never revealed who they were
throughout the evening.


KREWE DE YAK MEMBERS, Erik Graves and Angela
Shaw, pose with their friend while waiting for their turn
at the buffet. Items from the buffet were provided by the
krewe and various restaurants and caterers from around
the area.


THE 2010 KING AND QUEEN of Carnival for Panama
City, Don and Sue Cox, were treated like royalty at the Krewe
de Yak krewe ball. They traveled from Mexico Beach to take
part in the evening's activities.


ERIC AND MEGAN GALLOWAY got into
the evening and celebrated with all the guests
march to Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.


THE PAST AND PRESENT KINGS from the Krewe of St. Andrews took a chance to
mingle and snap a few photos before giving pins and the gold krewe coins to members of the
Krewe de Yak. Visiting krewe always bring gifts of appreciation to the hosting krewe as a
symbol of hope, love and charity.


PAST AND PRESENT QUEENS AND PRINCESSES from the Krewe of St. Andrews
smiled for the camera during the ball. They traveled from Panama City and Panama City
Beach to attend.

A couple of years ago I
found an article on the five
friends every woman needs
in her life. On an ever-ex-
panding mission for self-
improvement at the time,. I
tucked the article away and
promised to refer to it should
I need to shore up the friend-
ship department. Perhaps I
should've read an article on
organizational skills as well
and today I might be able to
find the former. Regardless
what kinds of friends the
article touted as woman's
best, these are the ones I
know for sure need to be on
speed dial.
The best friend. A best
friend is a rarity-one who
lasts through years then de-
cades of the friendship roll-
ercoaster. She could be your
soulmate, though not your
roommate (even two women
who would give each other
a kidney need their own do-
main). She flies cross-coun-
try for your birthday, knows
the name of every relation-
ship/boyfriend/kiss/mistake
you've ever had, is the god-
mother to your children, and
knows when a bottle of wine
and chocolate is just what
the doctor ordered. In this
friendship, all ground is sa-
cred. There is no judgment,
never an "I told you so" or
an eye-roll. The two of you
know what Aristotle meant
when he said a friend is a
"single soul dwelling in two
bodies," which is why she is
forever speed dial #1.
The straight shooter. Ev-
ery woman needs a friend
who is so much herself, so
quick to speak her mind,
that her presence begets
the same. She makes no
apologies for her candor and
leaves no question where
she stands on an issue. Her
genuineness is her gift, both
in life and in her friendships.
She is often the first to stay
late at work, the one you'd
trust to babysit your chil-
dren, and the first call when
you need to hear an hon-
est opinion. Because she is
liberated, but would smack
someone into next week who
dared attribute her to the
women's lib movement, her
presence automatically lib-
erates you. Speed dial #2.
The girl's night out girl.
You can't even think about
the times you've had togeth-
er without smiling. She's
open to any suggestion that
involves alcohol, can make
a drive in the car more fun
than dancing in a club,
and will drag you, kicking,


screaming, and intoxicated
on-stage for karaoke. She
reassures you what an in-
credible mother you are,
how lucky your husband is
to have you, and insists you
toast it at a weekly girls'
night. And bonus, she's not
an empty-headed party girl,
but the best catch in the
room not waiting on a man
smart enough to see it. She's
living it up with her lady
friends and is speed dial #3.
The grade-school chum.
She's known you since your
first crush, your first bra,
your first heartbreak. You
reached and remember each
milestone together: the first
time at the mall without a
chaperone, the day you got
your license, the rehearsal
dinner and bachelorette par-
ty. She takes you back like
the unforgettable scent of
lockers and lip gloss. Miles
and years may separate you,
but every conversation picks
up where it left off. It's as ef-
fortless and carefree to talk
about marriage and parent-


Crestview, presented each
resident of The Stanley


ing as it was to giggle over
crushes and kissing. She's
speed dial #4.
The kick in the pants.
She's the friend you met by
chance then learned your
interests and passions are
all too similar. She juggles a
family and work life burst-
ing at the seams, yet man-
ages to keep a smile and
pursue her own interests,
which in turn motivates you
to pursue yours. She's the
dedicated editor every time
you send her another few
pages of that novel you've
been working on, and the
intent listener when she has
time to meet for lunch. Be-
cause your interests mirror
each other so closely she's
the perfect partner for intel-
lectual synergy. Not to men-
tion her soul beams from
her radiant eyes and smile,
speed dial #5.
Those are the five friends
who keep me balanced. Al-
though we don't see each
other as often as I'd like,
each one forging her own
path of career, traveling,
wifedom and motherhood,
they aie the counterweights
to the many sides of myself,
and always at the top of my
call list.

Dear Auntie Em,


Things have been looking
up for me and my husband.
We are both working and just
moved into a new home with
a fenced back yard. Now, my
daughter has started to ask
for a dog. I know animals
are a lot of responsibility but
was wondering if this might
be a good way to teach my
daughter responsibility, as
well?
Any advice on a breed or
if you think she might be too
young to handle a pet of her
own?

Pondering pups in Ponce

Dear Pondering,

You are wise to consider
this before just saying yes


to your daughter's request.
Pets can be a blessing. They
are also a lot of responsi-
bility as you have pointed
out. I would first question
if your daughter is mature
enough for that responsibil-
ity. Does she follow direc-
tion and can she understand
the well-being of this pup is
her responsibility? Can she
handle simple tasks you set
forth for her or do you end
up doing them? Does she
understand that pets are
a part of the family and a
commitment that cannot be
discarded if she gets bored
with them? If she passes
these questions to your sat-
isfaction, then she might be
ready.
If so, then you have to


consider the cost. '
Pets need regu-
lar checkups and .....
sometimes require .,
more vet attention
and that can get -
pricey. You said
you have a fenced
yard, but will the
dog be an inside dog that
can bond with the family.
Will you be able to assist
your daughter with house
training for the puppy?
Finally, I urge you to look
into shelters if you decide to
adopt. Alaqua Animal Ref-
uge and the Walton County
Animal Shelter would be
good places to start. Alaqua
pets can be seen at www.
aarflorida.com and those
from the shelter can be

seen at www.co.walton.fl.us/
quicklinks.aspx under ani-
mal control.
Good luck with your new
family member if you decide
to adopt and God bless.

Seems like yesterday we got the call,
you lost your life without warning at all.
Although you're gone,
and now walk above,
Your time came.too soon, but we remember your
love.
Your life was over in a flash
our life was shattered. I now know that you're
happy where you are.
Safe in the arms of Jesus, without a care.

You may be gone,
but not forgotten.

We Love You,
Dad, Mom,
Sister, and Brother

Stanley House needs



Bible Study volunteers


Stanley House Assisted
Living is looking for several
new volunteers to help con-
duct Bible study activities
at the facility. "Since most
of our residents don't leave
the premises very often, we
try to schedule a variety of
different religious activities
for them throughout the
week," said Stanley House
Community Affairs Director
Alex Alexander. "We're look-
ing for volunteers who could


lead an informal church
service, or teach a Sunday
School class, preach God's
word, or possibly play the
piano and lead the residents
in singing a few hymns.We
group all of these types of
activities under the heading
of 'Bible Study' on our resi-
dent activity calendar."

"In the past, we've had tre-
mendous participation from
our various area churches


and religious leaders," said
Alexander. "We currently
have several one-hour slots
that need to be filled during
the week and would love to
have some more volunteers
who could come on a regular
basis anywhere from once
a week to once a month."

For information on vol-
unteering at Stanley House;

Night of Worship with Nikki


Mathis at Abundant Life Church


I


Abundant Life Church of
Samson, Ala. presents Night
of Worship with Nikki Ma-
this on Sunday, Jan. 30, at
6 p.m. Nikki was born and
raised in Edmonton, Alber-
ta, Canada. She was raised
in a spirit-filled Christian
home with loving parents.
After feeling the call of God
on her life in grade seven,
she made a decision to fol-
low after Christ for the rest
of her life. All throughout
junior high and high school
Nikki pursued the call of
God as she was involved in
youth ministry, music min-
istry and prayer team. God
used these experiences to
start the purification pro-
cess in her and begin this


journey called Christianity.
After high school, Nikki
followed her music pastor
to a church in Crestview
for a three-month music in-
ternship. There she met her
husband, Chris Mathis and
months later felt the Lord
leading her to move per-
manently to Florida. Chris
and Nikki served at a drug
and alcohol rehab called
Harvest Vineyard Mission,
where they were raised up
and equipped for hands-on,
ministry in deliverance, in-
ner healing and worship.
When their season there
was over, they moved to
Montgomery, Ala. and came
underneath the ministry of
Fresh Anointing House of


Worship. They were later
sent to Okaloosa County
where Nikki and Chris pas-
tor a church in Crestview
and are excited about what
God is doing in the south-
east region.
Nikki has a passion for
intimacy with God and
feels burdened for the body
of Christ to encounter Him
through worship. She has
a desire to see the body of
Christ set free through in-
ner healing and deliverance,
and prays that, through her
worship, people will expe-
rience the anointing that
breaks every yoke, through
the power of Jesus Christ.
Nikki is a mother of two,
Micaiah Glory Mathis and


Judah Lee Mathis. Nikki
loves sports, spending time
with her family and doing
the work of the ministry
through the church. She has
two sisters and one brother,
and two amazing parents,
Jeff and Dianne Hilton. A
love offering will be received
for Nikki's Ministry and she
will also have CDs available
for purchase! Abundant Life
Church is located at 414 W.
Washington St., Samson,
Ala. The church's number is
(334) 898-7788.

Break the Bank;

We'll All Be Richer

for It

By Ronnie McBrayer


"No man is an island en-
tire of itself," the great John
Donne famously wrote.
Rather, he said every per-
son "is a part of the main."
That is, we are all involved
with and interconnected to
humankind. God, a rela-
tional being as well, created
humanity to thrive in com-
munity, not in dogged iso-
lation. It is heresy to think
otherwise.
Yet this heresy is alive
and well, even in our hous-
es of worship. Places that
should be blossoming gar-
dens of communion and
family-ship are rampant
with the weeds of stubborn,
self-reliance and spit-in-
the-wind individuality. Yes,
at times this kind of inde-
pendence serves us well. It
produces those pull-your-
self-up-by-your-boot-strap
stories we all love. It gives
us our historical, entertain-
ment, and motivational he-
roes.
In moderation, this type
of individualism is good,
but when it gets out of bal-
ance, when we become over-
obsessed with personal free-
dom, personal rights and
personal independence, it
is oppositional to building
healthy relationships; at
home, in the neighborhood,
or at the house of worship.
Maintaining our individu-
ality, at the expense of com-
passion for or involvement
with others is violation of
the beautiful African prin-
ciple of "Ubuntu" that says,
"I am who I am, because of
who we all are." It is simply
counter to being human.
So how do we lay aside
overgrown personal inde-
pendence for communal in-
terdependence? It's pretty
simple, though not neces-
sarily easy. You must break
your own heart open first.
Don't wait on your neigh-
bor, your pastor or rabbi,
the person in the other pew
or the one you consider to
be fiber-spiritual to begin -
you must go first. Then in a
strange paradox (as individ-
uals give their hearts away
one by one), community is
born.
Growing up I had a beau-
tiful piggy bank my aunt


brought back to me from the
Great Smoky Mountains
(technically it was a bear
bank, not a pig, but you get
the idea). I stuffed in my
coins and loved to shake it,
hearing all that change rat-
tling about.
Once it reached the point
that it wouldn't clang and
jangle, it was full. What
then? Then, I was supposed
to break it and pour it out,
finally having enough with
which to do something. But
I could never bring myself
to break the bank. I couldn't
bear to destroy it, so it sat
there on the shelf, inacces-
sible and unused, the good
stuff trapped inside.
This is the same way
many of people live their
lives. They shove all their
stuff through the slots of
their hearts and encase it
so that they (and nobody
else) are the only ones who
can get to it. After all, it has
taken them so long to get all
that junk saved up. It is a
lot of work to squirrel away
their valuables on the is-
land of their stubbornness,
so they just can't break it
open.
For if they were suddenly
broken open for others to
see then they would be emp-
ty. They would lose their in-
dependence and seclusion.
But, and this is some good


Ronnie McBrayer
Ronnie McBrayer


news, they might finally be
able to spend and/or give
away some of the good shiny
stuff on the -inside. And
don't be mistaken: There's
some good shiny stuff inside
each of us that others could
benefit from, and we could
benefit from sharing. Oh,
there's some trash inside of
us as well. Lint balls, paper
clips, old broken buttons,
guitar picks, worn out ticket
stubs: All that is mixed in
too.
But I have found that
when the giant piggy bank
is finally broken open,
there's a lot more of the
valuable in there than we
thought there was, and it
always helps if there's more
than a few hands sorting,
rolling, counting, and work-
ing through what is on the
inside.
That's where we must be-
gin. We break open our
hearts, shake and rattle
them around until the stuff
on the inside comes out.
Then, together, we can sort
through it all. And together
is when we are at our best:
"I am who I am, because of
Swho we all are."
Ronnie McBrayer is the
author of "Leaving Religion,
Following Jesus." He writes
and speaks about life, faith,
and Christ-centered spiritu-
ality.

Lady Bulldogs earn second-place district spot


while Freeport's boys rally to beat Northview


By REID TUCKER
Freeport's girls' and boys'
basketball teams made a
.good account of themselves
against visiting Northview,
as both Bulldog squads
notched solid wins against
the Chiefs.
Both games of the double
header, held Friday, Jan.
21, were characterized by
team efforts on the part of
the Bulldogs, as both squads
had three players with 15
or more points. Dannica
Mosher led the Lady Dogs
with 29 points, followed by
Jessica Moulton's 22 and a
career high 15 points from
Catherine Trotman. The
entire boys' roster scored
at least once, though high-
score honors went to Mi-
chael Graziani's 23 points,
Gabe Moore's 20 and Dalton
Morrison's 16.
The Lady Dogs relied
primarily on Moulton, who
scored on a pair of 3s and
a layup before getting into
foul trouble. She sat out the
second quarter but Mosher
and Trotman more than
made up the difference by
scoring eight points apiece.
By halftime, Freeport was
up 36-17 over Northview in
spite of the best efforts of
Shaniqua Jones (who scored
a game-high 35 points for
the Lady Chiefs) and sev-
eral costly turnovers by the
home team.

The third period was as
close as the Lady Dogs came
to a slow quarter, as Trot-
man and Mosher (about 40
points short of her career-
1,000-point mark) combined
in-work on the paint and
a trio of 3 pointers for 14
points between the two of
them. Jones nearly pulled
off a one-woman rally for
Northview in the second
half, scoring the bulk of her
team's 18 points per quarter
singlehandedly. Freeport
stayed ahead thanks to sol-
id free-throw shooting from
Mosher and Moulton, whose
triumphant return saw her
put up three 3s in a row
before going three-for-four
at the charity stripe after a
Northview player gave her a
blow to the face.
Adding to the sweetness,
the Lady Dogs' 79-55 victory
wrapped up a 6-4 district re-
cord, which locks them into
a second-place standing just
behind the Lady Pirates of
Ponce De Leon. Coach Mike
Myrick said the win is fur-
ther proof of his team's abil-
ity to exceed expectations
by continuing to get a high
shooting percentage in the
face of serious opposition.
"All our outside, shoot-
ers were hitting tonight,"
Myrick said. "[Everyone has]
done an excellent job. To me
they have overachieved.
Most everybody has had bet-
ter basketball talent than
we have and [the girls] just
keep playing hard and doing
what we ask them to do. I'm
really proud of them."
Freeport's girls are set to
wrap up the regular season


this week with non-district
opponents South Walton on
Tuesday, Walton on Thurs-
day and Laurel Hill on Fri-
day.
Unlike the girls' squad,
Freeport's boys' team had
to struggle through a tough
first half before eventually
emerging the winner af-
ter taking the initiative in
the third quarter. The first
period saw the Chiefs pull
ahead 21-16 over the Bull-
dogs. Darrien Looney made
a colossal dunk to put Free-
port ahead by three with
less than five minutes to
go in the half, though the
Chiefs quickly came back to


tie the game at 32. Looney
joined Morrison, Moore and
Graziani, who combined
to contributing another16
points in the second quarter
while holding Northview to
12 points in the period.
The Bulldogs rallied in
the second half as Graziani
and Moore lead the way
with 15 points. He was fol-
lowed closely by Moore who
scored 12 points, including
going four-for-four at the
free-throw line (he went a
perfect 5-0 from the char-
ity stripe during the game).
Colton Suns and Lance
Bushaw did their best to
keep the Chiefs in the game,


FREEPORT'S GABE MOORE was as capable on the
boards as he was from the free-thrbw line in the game
against the visiting Northview Chiefs. He scored 20 points
and went five-for-five from behind the charity stripe. (Photo
by Reid Tucker)


but both had their shooting
go stale in the final quarter,
while Freeport scored seem-
ingly at will.
Freeport went for a se-
cure win and elected to hold
onto the ball for the entirety
of the final minute of play
and after running up the
score to its high-water mark
of 72-58.
Freeport coach David
Burke said the Bulldogs
(13-6, 7-1) will have to face
down Ponce De Leon's boys
on Thursday as well Pen-
sacola Christian on Friday
if the team is to come away
with a number-one seed go-
ing into the coming weeks'
district tournament. The
hope is that the pressure


on the whole team will be
alleviated by the projected
Feb. 7 return of go-to high-
score-man Colin Myrick. In
the meantime the Bulldogs
can continue to draw on
their athleticism and work
together as they did against
Northview.
"It was a team effort for
us tonight...everyone con-
tributed," Burke said. "If we
needed a big basket, some-
one stepped up and made it.
It seemed like we just wore
them down. After we got
up in'the third quarter you
could see the fire kind of go
out of [Northview's eyes]. I
think we're in better shape
than they are and it showed
tonight."


DANNICA MOSHER CONTINUED her winning ways,
leading the Lady Bulldogs with 29 against Northview. (Pho-
to by Reid Tucker)


Walton Boys Defeat Crusaders


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves boys'
basketball team picked up a
win at home over Pensacola
Catholic on Friday night by
a 69-58 count as the Braves
defense forced 27 turnovers
with guard Edward Howard
scoring 18 points as Walton
improved to 8-12 overall and
3-6 in district play.
Walton got off to a slow
start against the Crusaders
as they trailed for most of
the first quarter before clos-
ing with a scoring flurry to
take a 12-9 lead after eight
minutes of play.
Angus Anderson canned
a pair of three-point shots
in the second quarter as the
home team pushed the lead
to 28-22 at the break.
The Braves offense got
rolling in the third quarter as
Howard scored seven points
in the period with teammate
Eddie Pomante drilling a
long-distance three-point
shot at the buzzer to give
Walton a 51-37 lead and all
the momentum.
Pomante finished the
game with 13 points as he
nailed six free throws in
the second half as Walton
went 10-for-10 at the char-
ity stripe on the night.
Howard scored another
six points- in the fourth
quarter to finish the night
with 18 points while Des-
hun Tucker ended the game
in double figures with 13
points as well.
Trey Halstead led the
Crusaders with 22 points
but the visiting team was
out-rebounded most of the
night to go with their high
volume of turnovers.
Walton got off 72 shots from
the floor to only 44 field
goal attempts for Pensacola
Catholic.
The victory allowed the
Braves to avenge a 42-41
loss in Pensacola on Jan. 4.
Walton gave Marianna
a battle in another district


contest on Jan. 18. The
Braves held a 32-27 lead
early in the third quarter
before the Bulldogs got roll-
- -- --- -_ T -


ing by forcing several turn-
overs to retake the lead at
47-44, after three quarters
of play.

Walton went through a
period of cold shooting late
in the third quarter into the
fourth period as Marianna
was able to build a lead as
guard Tre Jackson canned
8-of-10 free throws to help
the Bulldogs pull out a 70-
62 victory.
The Braves trailed the
Bulldogs 17-12 after one
quarter of play, but fell be-
hind 27-19 before scoring
the final eight points of the
first half to take a 28-27
lead into the locker room.
Walton got 14 points from
sophomore Deshun Tucker
while Jackson led Marianna
with 24 points. The Bulldogs
had four players in double
figures as they earned a
sweep of the regular season
series.
The Braves also had four
players in double figures as
Eddie Pomante put up 12


points'ith Angus Anderson
and Ken Randolph scoring
10 points apiece.
The Braves also fell to
Chipley during the week as
the Tigers remained unde-
feated with a 70-55 victory
on Thursday night in Chip-
ley. Angus Anderson led the
squad with 17 points in the
.game as the Braves gave the
home team a battle before
being swept in the regular
season series.
Game Notes: The Walton
boys have lost 12 consecu-
tive games against Mari-
anna and are 13-29 in the
series since 1988-89. The
Braves. are 20-21 versus
Pensacola Catholic since the
1988-89 season. Walton will
likely have to face Panama
City Bay in the first round
of the district tournament
as the two squads are likely
to finish 4-5 in the district.

Freeport's Castro nets third hat trick on the


way to a 4-3 soccer victory over Walton


By REID TUCKER
Freeport's soccer team
turned the tables on Walton
in the teams' second meet-
ing of the season, netting
a convincing 4-3 victory on
the Bulldogs' senior night.
Despite the change in
venue to Freeport, the
Thursday, Jan. 20, game
was in many ways less of a
sequel to the prior game and
more of a remake. As with
last time, Walton was still
less a critical starter or two,
namely ace midfielder Ri-
cardo Ramirez due to a hip
injury that first flared up in
the last game against the


Bulldogs. However, Free-
port team had also suffered
some injuries, meaning that
the Bulldogs took to the field
with just 12 players, a fact
that head coach Carla Grif-
fith said had her worried go-
ing into the game.
She needn't have worried
though, for, like all good re-
makes, this one didn't play
out exactly like the original.
In spite of some initial hesi-
tancy going into the game,
the Bulldogs were carried to
an early lead thanks to two
goals from Kevin Castro.
Walton's Carlos Morales
scored twice in the mean-

time, but Freeport was back
on top again by the 10th
minute as David Geraldo
scored on a corner kick.
"We were a little leery go-
ing into the game, there's
no doubt about it, but they
got together and pulled out
a win for the seniors," she
said. "This was the best
they've played in a while. It
was really a pleasant sur-
prise."
Bryce Sefo made a break-
away run right after the wa-
ter break and put a shot on
the goal but it came up just
a few feet short of the right
post. Geraldo closed in on
Walton's goal and found the
back of the net with 7:23 to
go in the half, but the kick
was called high due to the
proximity of Walton keeper
Stan Standland. The Braves
turned up the heat in the
period's closing minutes and


Luis Garcia capitalized on a
direct kick and to make the
score at three-all.

The second half saw both
sides employ a more.defen-
sive strategy so as to avoid
costly attempts on the goal,
but it was only a quick div-
ing save by Standland that
prevented Sefo from scoring
just after the water break.
Walton's Travis Fields near-
ly put the Braves in the lead
but a line drive on the goal
in the 65th minute skimmed
the top bar. Having narrow-
ly avoided a lead change,
Freeport dialed up the in-
tensity in the latter part of
the half, putting five shots
on the goal to Walton's two,
though the Braves' keepers
kept the ball from the net in
four out of five cases.
That one shot that made
it past Standland's screen

Walton's Andrew Shipman for control of the ball on his way

came courtesy of Castro
(Freeport's leading scorer,
with 17 goals to his credit),
who earned his third hat
trick of the 2010-2011 sea-
son. With just minutes to tie
the game up, Walton's play-
ers redoubled their efforts to
send some shots downrange,
but all that ended for the
most part when Joey Rodri-
guez and Sefo clashed heads
in the 57th minute. Walton
failed to convert several
subsequent possessions into
attempts on the goal and
the clock ran out on a 4-3
victory for the Bulldogs.
Ambulances were called
for Sefo and Rodriguez,
though neither were said to
have suffered concussions.
Both were cleared by medi-
cal officials to play, though
Sefo did not participate in
the next day's game on the
road against Fort Walton
Beach, who mercy ruled the
visiting Bulldogs.


Nevertheless, Griffith
said Sefo will be up and
around for this Friday's dis-
trict championship game
against rival Rocky Bayou.
She said having Sefo back
on the field will be a big help,
but the game is expected to
be a tough one regardless,
as the Knights have twice
beaten Freeport (6-9) this
season. Making things even
more interesting is that the
Bulldogs will contest the
district title sans substitute
players, and perhaps more
importantly, without the as-
sistance of sweeper Hunter
Bailey, who had 27 saves
against Walton.
"We're cautiously optimis-
tic," Griffith said. "It can be
done but we'll have to get it
right in practice. We'll have
to play together and play
very hard. But you never
know, when we're on, we're
on. When they play together
we can be in contention."


AFTER SCORING WALTON'S THIRD GOAL, Luis Gar-
cia went head to head with Freeport's top scorer, Kevin Cas-
tro, in an attempt to win the ball. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

Commission chair



responds to "cash



cow" remarks


By DOTTY NIST
"Never have we held any-
one at sword point," said
Walton County Commis-
sion Chairman Larry Jones,
in reference to the issue of
post-Hurricane Dennis sea-
walls in Walton County.
Contacted by the De-
Funiak Herald/Beach
Breeze on Jan. 19, Jones
responded to comments
by Senator Don Gaetz (R-
Niceville) in the local press
two days earlier. These
were remarks regarding a
local bill being proposed to
resolve permitting issues
with seawalls construc-
tion in Walton County after
2005 Hurricane Dennis. The
comments were critical of
the county's actions toward
property owners with sea-
walls constructed following
the hurricane.
Walton County's legisla-
tive delegation voted on Dec.
15 to file the legislation,
which, if approved in its
original form, would relieve
the post-Dennis seawall
owners of the requirement
to obtain a state permit for
their armoring.
During the emergency
period following the hurri-
cane, Walton County had is-
sued permits to beachfront
property owners authoriz-
ing them to construct tem-
porary armoring to shore up
their property, with the un-
derstanding that each per-
mittee would be required to
either remove the structure
within six months or obtain
a state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)
permit for their armoring.
Over four years later, the
several miles of armoring
constructed as a result of
those temporary permits for
the most part is still in place
but not yet permitted by the
state.
On Jan. 11, the Walton
County Board of County


Commissioners (BCC) ap-
proved a letter of concern to
be sent to the legislative del-
egation on the topic of the
seawall legislation. While
opposing exempting the sea-
walls "from any permit con-
ditions" due to the county's
concerns about potential
impacts on "the character
and integrity of the beach
and dune system," the let-
ter put forth the belief that
a compromise on the legis-
lation would be possible. It
suggests that the state be
allowed to waive its current
"eligibility and vulnerabil-
ity" criteria in connection
with armoring applications,
providing for the permit-
ting of applications meeting
all other conditions, among
those being proper construc-
tion and the absence of neg-
ative impacts to adjacent
properties and the dune
system. The letter states
the county's opinion that
issuing armoring permits
as opposed to removing the
permit requirement would
"legitimize the structure
and facilitate maintenance
accountability and track-
ing."
Also on Jan. 11, Walton
County Attorney Lynn Ho-
shihara had stated, "We
agree with the intent of
the legislation," explaining
that it is the mechanics and
wording of the bill that the
county is trying to work out
in order to satisfy its con-
cerns.
On Jan. 17, comments
on the matter by Gaetz ap-
peared in the Northwest
Florida Daily News, with
Gaetz referring to the sea-
wall bill as "a matter of
simple justice," and stating
that it would be wrong to
"decertify" the structures at
this time, since local govern-
ment gave the homeowners
permission to build the sea-
walls in the first place.

questions from attendees at the Walton County Taxpayers
Association Annual meeting. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


The article also refer-
enced a statement by Gaetz
that the Walton County
commissioners were look-
ing to the seawall permit-
ting issue as "a new rev-
enue source." It included
the quote by Gaetz, "I think
that the County Commis-
sion looks on these folks as
a cash cow. If these prop-
erty owners can be stopped
from using their own prop-
erty and forced to pay a high
fee, that puts a government
agency in the position of col-
lecting revenue almost at a
sword's point."
Responding on Jan. 19 to
SGaetz' remarks contained
in the article, County Com-
mission Chair Jones went
into the history of the post-
Hurricane Dennis seawalls.
He recalled that, in the
wake of the hurricane and
its erosional impacts along
the Walton County coast,
the county had asked DEP
if it would be possible to
provide help, at beachfront
homeowners' request, in the
form of temporary armoring
permits to allow the proper-
ty owners to shore up their
property. DEP agreed, Jones
recalled, and the county
made the permits available,
with the understanding that
the permits were for tempo-
rary armoring which must
either be removed within
six months or permitted by
state authorities. "This was
very clear," he said.
Jones said the county's
authority was limited to
the issuance of temporary
permits only and also that
this was possible only dur-
ing the declared emergency
period following the hur-
ricane. Normally, he noted,
and outside of the emer-
gency period, as structures
being placed forward of the
coastal construction control

MATT GAETZ, District 4 Representative shared ideas
with local Republicans during a recent visit.



Representative


Matt Gaetz


addresses WRWF


By DOTTY NIST
State Representative
Matt Gaetz (R-Fort Walton
Beach) recently shared with
Walton County Republicans
some of the things he had
learned about the legisla-
ture since taking the Dis-
trict 4 Seat in spring 2010.
Speaking at the Jan. 19
Walton Republican Women
Federated (WRWF) meeting
at Carrabba's Italian Grill,
Gaetz also spoke of his polit-
ical philosophy, values, and
hopes for the future.
The 28-year old repre-
sentative is a Northwest
Florida native who studied
at Florida State University
and then earned a law de-
gree at the College of Wil-
liam and Mary. He is the
son of state Senator Don
Gaetz (R-Niceville).
Matt Gaetz was elected
to the District 4 seat to com-
plete the term of Ray San-
som upon the resignation of


the former House speaker,
and was subsequently elect-
ed for a full term. District
4 is currently comprised of
parts of Okaloosa and Santa
Rosa County, extending to
Fort Walton Beach and Des-
tin on its eastern end.
Gaetz told the WRWF
members and their guests
that he had learned that all
members of the Northwest
Florida legislative delega-
tion have to "pull together"
in order to effectively repre-
sent the area. "We all believe
in conservative principles,"
he assured the gathering.
Gaetz said he had learned
in the last legislative session
that approximately 1,500
bills get filed in a session,:
and that only approximately
300 of those are passed. "My
number one job is to kill bad
ideas," he commented.
Among recent "bad idea"

Taxpayers' association


holds annual meeting


By DOTTY NIST
Lyle Siegler, county ad-
ministrator for Walton
County, pledged a commit-
ment to the goal of maintain-
ing the health, safety, and
welfare of the public, along
with supporting the local
economy, while streamlining
and increasing the efficiency
of county government.
Siegler was guest speak-
er at the Jan. 20 Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion (WCTA) annual meet-
ing, which was held at the
Coastal Branch Library.
'With the value of prop-
erty in Walton County and
county revenues dropping
each year for a number of
years, reducing the size of
county government has been
a necessity. County reve-
nues have gone from $122.8


million in 2008 to $94.69
million for the current year,
it was reported. Siegler ex-
pressed the expectation
that the slimming down of
government would continue
and that county employees
would be challenged to "do
more with less."
Gerry Demers, Siegler's
new assistant, has been
charged with "driving effi-
ciencies" in county govern-
ment as the primary task of
his position, and identifying
areas where cost savings can
be realized. On the job for
approximately two months,
Demers formerly served as
county planning and devel-
opment services director
and prior to that worked in
the Walton County Building
Department.
Demers revealed a sub-


stantial reduction in the
Planning Division, which
has gone from the 60 em-
ployees it had at one time to
20 employees. The Building
Department, he added, has
gone from 24 to just nine
employees.
The total number of au-
thorized county employees
has gone from 611.5 in 2008
to 526.5, Demers said, with
the current work force now
at approximately 500.
Siegler pledged that, al-
though county government
would be likely to "look dif-
ferent" in the days to come,
that staff would still strive
to "be the best."
"The key word is 'to-
gether,"' Siegler said. "It's
time for passionate people

DARRELL WILLER CONSTRUCTION employees have begun the process of replacing
the Wesley house columns.




Wesley house


renovations underway


By JEFFREYPOWELL
Undoubtedly, the focal
point of any visit to Eden
Gardens State Park is the
beautiful Wesley house.
The house was completed in
1897 by William H. and Ka-
tie Wesley on property near
their thriving sawmill. In
the 1920s a cupola was add-
ed that allowed family mem-
bers to keep an eye on the
sawmill operations. During
the late 1950s the home sat
empty until Lois G. Maxon
purchased the property for
$12,500. She then invested
close to $1 million to convert
the Victorian-style house
into a Classic Revival home.
Over a year ago Boyd
Martini of Martin Properties
of NWF Iac. was doing con-
tract work on the building
when he discovered what
appeared to be wood rot and
questionable splicing in the
home's trademark columns.
Since that time access to
the second floor balcony had
been restricted to visitors
for obvious safety reasons.
Recently, Martin was
asked by The Friends of


Eden to replace the struc-
tural portion of the columns
and return the home's struc-
tural integrity. The work is
estimated to take between
eight to 10 weeks and should
be completed within the ap-
proximately $65,000 bud-
get.
"Everything that we
thought was wrong was
wrong," said Boyd. "It ap-
pears that over the years
many splices had been made
in the columns and there
just was not much structur-
al strength left."
Out of his commitment to
the park and his community
Boyd is doing the work at
cost and will not charge any
building fees.
"Eden is a special place. I
visit here often with my own
family." Boyd said. "This is
a local project that will be
completed with local work-
ers. When we are finished
the columns will be sound,
we want it done right and
well."
The project was started
on the building's north side
in anticipation of the up-


coming wedding season.
Many couples are married
under the park's "wedding
tree," which uses the north
facade of the Wesely home
as a backdrop for their wed-
ding photos.
As with most non-profit
organizations today, the
Friends of Eden organiza-
tion is feeling the pain of re-
cent financial realities. This
project has stretched their
coffers to the limit.
"This is very generous on
Mr. Martin's part, especially
considering recent economic
times," said Friends of Eden
President Marianne Bur-
bach. "The upstairs balcony
has been closed for over a
year now and we look for-
ward to it being accessible to
visitors again. The balcony
gives tour-members a beau-
tiful view of the grounds and
gardens. We are in need of
any financial support to pay
for this and any future proj-
ects. The Friends of Eden
are looking for people to be
column supporters."

Community Walton



plans for the future


By LEAH STRATMANN

The first meeting of the
year for Community Wal-
ton attracted more than 30
people and resulted in sev-
eral people signing up as
new members. According to
chairman Jan Stevens, "We
are prepared to move on both
of the 2011 projects, which
include continuing to work
on securing a 2-1-1 system
in Walton County and help-
ing the Muscogee Nation of
Florida achieve federal rec-
ognition as a tribe."
Ann Tucker, tribal chief
of the Muscogee Nation of
Florida provided a recap of
last year's activities of the
tribe. "During nine months
of 2010, the Muscogee Na-
tion of Florida fed 2,450 peo-
ple, 800 of them under the
age of 18. We distributed
more than 35,000 pounds of
commodities, most of which
were raised through local
donations as the first UDSA
truck did not begin monthly
deliveries until October. Of
the people served in eastern
Walton County, 4 percent
were tribal members. We
are proud of this Rural Re-
lief effort and of the work
and support of this organi-
zation and its members,"
she said.
Tucker further stated
that legislation introduced
for the tribe's federal rec-

holds


artist

reception

By JEFFREY POWELL
The Cultural Arts Asso-
ciation (CAA) kicked off its
2011 A+ Art exhibition se-
ries with an artist reception
on Friday, Jan. 21. The first
installment of the series is
titled "Landscape from Four
Perspectives" and is now on
exhibit at the Northwest
Florida State College (NWF-
SC) South Walton Center in
Santa Rosa Beach. The ex-
hibit includes the works of
local artists Allison Wickey,
Carol Ann Cain, Dorothy
Starbuck and Melody Bogle,
and is open to the general
public. This first exhibit of
the year is a collaborative
effort between NWFSC and
the CAA. Both organiza-
tions hope that the series
will bring exposure and in-
terest to the campus and
artwork.
"There are so many people
here that would not normal-
ly be seeing our campus,"
said NWFSC South Walton
Center Director Julie Ter-
rell. "We are very happy to
be working with the Cultur-
al Arts Association."
Each artist spoke briefly


ignition expired on Dec. 31,
2010. The tribe is currently
awaiting new bill numbers
to be assigned. Tucker
noted the majority in the
Senate is Democratic and
Sen. Bill Nelson will need
to introduce the legisla-
tion again. And Sen. Rubio
is expected to co-sponsor
this bill. "As the House of
Representatives is now Re-
publican, Congressman Jeff
Miller will have to take the
lead," she said. "We have
no tribal relationship with
Congressman Southerland
so any Community Walton
connection to members of
the U.S. Congress needs to
be explored. The bills need
to be introduced early and
worked steadily," she sug-
gested.
Tucker's report included
the information that sup-
port from local/district po-
litical parties is extremely
helpful. "Recognition is not
a partisan issue and will
ultimately lead to employ-
ment opportunities, housing
funding, education fund-
ing and medical assistance.
These services affect many
surrounding communities
and in hard times, can bring
additional federal programs
into hard hit areas," Tucker
asserted.
Tucker thanked Com-
munity Walton for helping
to work on the difficult is-


sue of recognition. "Without
recognition, we will cease to
exist as a tribal community
within two generations. We
do not have the mechanisms
and legal rights required to
protect our community, our
elderly, or the generations
that follow."
There has been a formal
committee formed to pursue
the 2-1-1 implementation
through COPE and they are
organizing a formal applica-
tion to the Florida Alliance
of Information and Referral
Services (FLAIR).
"This is the first and very
important step towards
becoming 211 Panhandle-
HELP, the name chosen by
the committee," noted Jane
Burns. "It is the goal of this
committee to have the appli-
cation to FLAIR done before
the end of February. The
team at COPE under the
leadership of Rachel Gillis
has been undaunted in their
enthusiasm and task ori-
ented work and Community
Walton is excited about the
progress and excited to be a
part of this important ven-
ture for the county."
The next Community
Walton meeting is Feb. 15,
at 5:30 p.m. at Calypso Cafe
in the Embassy Suites Ho-
tel.

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann -,, .-


There may be some who
would dispute me, but I am
convinced I have the two
best dogs in Walton Coun-
ty. During the first week of
January we celebrated our
two-year anniversary of
being a family with steak,
steak bones, and ice cream.
When we celebrate, we do it
right.
Both of my dogs came
from Alaqua Animal Refuge
and they had names when
I got them. I continue to be
awed that they will come
when called, something no
other dog I have ever had
has done.
I have since changed the
spelling of Rayn's name to
Rain (he had no objection)
because it seemed to go bet-
ter with the hippy-dippy
name of Spirit, who I ad-
opted at the same time. The
two dogs have very different
personalities, but they have
adapted to me and to each
other and I think it is safe
to say we all love each other
very much.
The dogs are an endless
source of amusement to me.
The other day I observed the
two of them in what I have
to describe as kissing. They
had their noses together and
were licking each other's
faces and they continued
for some time. I had seen
them play and chase each
other around the house, but
I had never seen that and it
seemed like a new level of
closeness between them.

THY STARBUCK were on hand for Friday's reception. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell) *


during the reception and
although they have differ-
ing styles and perspectives,
each noted the beauty of the
panhandle as great inspira-
tion for their artwork.
Approximately 50 citi-
zens attended the reception.
Those in attendance enjoyed
light hors d'oeuvres, bever-
ages and were able to tour


the campus.
"We are delighted with
the turnout and glad so
many people could come and
see the artwork," CAA sec-
retary Betty Cork said. "We
would like to see this area
become an artist destination
as well as a tourist destina-
tion."
Future exhibits include a


"Top of the Class" juried art
show that will open April 1,
"Shutter Works" opens dur-
ing the summer, "Fabrics of
our Lives" opens during the
fall and "Approaching the
Figure" will be presented
during the winter.

The way in which they
share is interesting. They
eat and drink from the same
bowls and there is a little
dance they do when they
are both hungry at the same
time. First one goes to the
bowl and takes a mouthful
of kibble and walks away to
another part of the kitchen,
drops the morsels and then
eats them. While this is
going on, the other one ap-
proaches the bowl and does
the same thing. This way,
they both eat at the same
time without contention.
When they come in thirsty
from outside, they often
drink at the same time from
the one big bowl full of wa-
ter.
I'm not sure but I think
they take turns being the
beta dog. I'm the alpha dog
of course, but sometimes
Rain is in the lead in what
they do, at other'times it's
Spirit. Apparently size
makes no difference here, as
Rain is three times as big as
Spirit.
Rain is also more affec-
tionate than Spirit. He has
a need to be near me at all
times, while Spirit will go
off by herself. I cannot es-
cape Rain though. He fol-
lows me to the bathroom,
the office and anyplace else
I go. He gets his nose out of
joint when I leave the house
without him and he is the
happiest when I return.
Both dogs like to ride in
the car and I suspect part
of this is because I'm in the
car. When I get out to do
an errand, they go on alert.
Anyone who comes close to
the car is greeted with fero-
cious barking from Rain and
he looks and sounds vicious,
but I have no way of know-
ing if he would hurt anyone


LEAH STRATMANN


who tried to open the door. I
get this same level of protec-
tion at home and it comforts
me, as their ears are way
better than mine.
One of the things I like
best about these dogs is they
are not in the least demand-
ing. My sleep schedule is
highly erratic. I do not sleep
at night like a normal per-
son, instead catching two
and three hour naps around
my schedule of meetings
and other obligations. The
dogs have adapted totally
to this non-schedule and it
is only once in a blue moon
that they jump all over me
when I'm asleep demanding
to be let out. This is a trea-
sure.
Between Alaqua and the
Walton County Animal Con-
trol shelter, there are doz-
ens of dogs needing a good
home. If you can spare a few
dollars a month for food and
shelter, I urge you to get a
canine companion. Life. is
better when you share and
if you write for a living,
having a couple of dogs is
always good for a column if
the creative well runs dry.

Department of Financial

Services continues to

pursue eighth suspect in

insurance fraud case


By REID TUCKER
An eighth man suspected
of using false identification
is still at large following the
Jan. 14 arrest of seven other
employees of a Destin con-
struction company.
The man, whose name
could not be revealed due
to the ongoing nature of the
state Department of Finan-
cial Services-headed inves-
tigation, is believed to have
fled the area, said DFS Di-
vision of Insurance Fraud
Communications Director
Jennifer Hirst. Like the oth-
er seven men arrested, the
unnamed individual is sus-
pected of using a social secu-
rity number not assigned to
him for the purpose of gain-
ing employment at Cardinal
Concrete, of Destin.
The investigation began
after DIF received a tip from
an insurance company after
one of the workers filed a
claim with the company.
Hirst said the claimant's
social security number was
determined to have been as-
signed to a deceased person,
prompting DIF detectives
to open an investigation in
September 2010. Over the
course of the case, DIF in-
vestigators identified eight
employees of the same com-
pany who used social secu-
rity numbers not their own
to gain employment.
Using documentation ob-
tained with cooperation of
the men's employer, investi-
gators found six of the eight
numbers in question were
either cases of stolen iden-
tity (that is, they belonged
to other people) or were as-
signed to deceased persons,
while the remaining two
numbers were entirely ficti-
tious. Hirst said no charges
had been brought against
Cardinal Concrete since
the owner was unaware the
workers were using ficti-
tious identification, was in
compliance with state and


federal laws and had "done
everything he could" to as-
sist law enforcement with
the case.
Mario Flores, 52, Roy
Montoya, 45, Clemente
Paredes, 31, Guadalupe
Martinez, 30, Enrique Lo-
pez, 28, Hector Martinez,
27, and Leopoldo Moreno,
25, were taken into cus-
tody with the assistance of
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice deputies at two Walton
County jobsites. The arrests
were made without inci-
dent and the suspects were
transported to the Walton
County Jail, whereupon
they were issued bonds of
$5,000 following their first
appearance in court. Mon-
toya, Paredes, Lopez and
Guadalupe Martinez bonded
out and were released, while
Flores, Moreno and Hec-
tor Martinez were issued
detainers by Immigration
and Customs Enforcement.
Hirst said ICE is currently
investigating the immigra-
tion status of each individu-
al.
The suspects could face
maximum sentences of 10
years or more in prison
and possible deportation.
A warrant has been issued
for the remaining suspect in
the case. Arrest reports filed
by the WCSO indicate the
men were also booked for
attempting to make fraudu-
lent claims of $100,000 or
more with BP. Hirst said ad-
ditional federal charges are
pending the conclusion of
the ICE investigation but it
was nevertheless important
to arrest the suspects on
grounds well within DIF's
jurisdiction.
"This goes a lot farther
than simple identity theft or
insurance fraud," she said.
"Other charges can poten-
tially be branched off of this,
but these charges fit into the
scope of what our division's
mission is."

A cold breeze carried the
smell of wood smoke and
the sounds of a regimental
fife throughout the grounds
of Eden Gardens State Park
over the Jan. 22 23, week-
end. Soldiers from the 7th
Vermont Company D took
over the grounds by erecting
tents and exhibits demon-
strating how life was lived
during the American Civil
War. The mornings were
started with the soldiers
drilling as visitors looked
on. Many exhibits demon-
strated the arts of medicine,


blacksmithing and shoe re-
pair.
Capt. Jim Busby of the
7th Vermont walked around
the camp seeing that every-
thing was going well and
meeting visitors.
"We are here to help
people appreciate history
for what it is," said Busby.
"Hopefully this experience
will give them a hint of what
a soldiers life was like in
1864. Everybody involved in
the Civil War was an Amer-
ican. Perhaps we can teach
people an appreciation for
the all that citizens and sol-
diers on both sides gave."


Later in the day a skir-
mish was held and visitors
were able to witness the fir-
ing of muskets and cannon.
Between demonstrations
the Friends of Eden pro-
vided hot dogs and drinks to
the visitors.
"The friends of Eden love
the School of the Soldier,"
said Vice President Maryjo
Morris enthusiastically.
"The re-enactors are very
passionate and you can feel
their dedication to living his-
tory. It is great interacting
with the participants. There
is so much to be learned
from events like this."

line (CCCL), such armor-
ing would have been subject
solely to the state's jurisdic-
tional authority.
Jones explained that U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service
had later required the coun-
ty to apply for an incidental
take permit (ITP) and devel-
op a Habitat Conservation
Plan (HCP) to resolve issues
raised by the agency related
to "take" or harm to feder-
ally protected endangered
species and their habitat in
connection with the county's
issuance of the temporary
armoring permits. With
property owners who had
constructed seawalls also
becoming subject to require-
ments for individual ITP
and HCP requirements in
connection with their state
armoring permit applica-
tions, Jones said the county
had obtained permission to
include seawall owners who
so desired as part of the
county's ITP and HCP. The
county plans to require the
individual homeowners who
wish to participate to pay
a pro-rata share to support
the HCP, he explained.
The fee being proposed
for post-Hurricane Dennis
seawall owners to partici-
pate in the county HCP is
a one-time payment of $100
per linear foot of seawall.
Activities included in HCP
are expected to cost a total
of $10.3 million over the 25-
year period it will be effec-
tive, with credit for ongoing
and currently-funded coun-
ty programs to account for
all but approximately $3.1
million of that cost.
Jones stressed that par-
ticipation by the homeown-
ers is in no way mandatory,
and that all fees from hom-
eowners in connection with
the county's HCP will go in
a conservation fund to sup-
port the HCP.
"There is no cash cow," he
said.
, Jones said the statement
that the county was attempt-
ing to stop homeowners from
using and protecting' their
property was "certainly not


correct." "If anything, we
have attempted to assist,"
he said. "There has been no
malice," he added.
Contacted on Jan. 21,
Senator Gaetz commented
that the issue with the leg-
islative delegation had been
whether the homeowners
would be able to protect
their property. He said his
understanding from the
county's letter of concern, on
which his earlier comments
were based, was that the
county would oppose legis-
lation to allow the seawalls
to remain in place.
"If the county has dropped
its opposition to the bill,
that's good news," he said.
Regarding his reference
to Walton County looking
to the seawall owners for a
new revenue source, Gaetz
said that in listening to tes-
timony by the county at the
Dec. 15 legislative delega-
tion meeting, at which the
legislators voted to proceed
with the filing of the local
bill, that he had understood
it to be the county's desire
to generate additional rev-
enue with the fees that the
property owners would pay
to participate in the HCP.
He said he had not been
aware that the homeowners'
participation would not be
mandatory or that the fees
would go into a conservation
fund.
Gaetz said he certainly
was not opposed to a habitat
conservation plan or conser-
vation fund. He added that,
as a property owner in south
Walton County for many
years, he strongly support-
ed conservation of the beach
habitat.

Seawall owners met on
Jan. 19 in Tallahassee with
DEP representatives, with
county staff and other county
citizens also in attendance,
for work on proposed word-
ing for the local bill. The
bill is expected to be filed by
State Representative Marti
Coley (R-Marianna) in the
2011 legislation session,
which begins in March.

bills, he continued, was one
that would have extended
state college tuition benefits
to illegal aliens. In addition,
he said, taxes now being
proposed include one on bot-
tled water, which he called
"a silly idea," along with the
"crazy notion" to tax on live
births in the state.
Gaetz also went on re-
cord in opposition to a pro-
posed tax on electric bills
that would "subsidize" the
choice of some consumers
who choose rene\wable en-
ergy options. He clarified
that he was very much in
favor of renewable energy---
but opposed costs associated
with consumers making this
choice being passed on to
other power customers.
Turning to the positive,
Gaetz expressed strong sup-
port for Florida's new gov-
ernor Rick Scott, who, he
assured attendees, will "run
the business side of govern-
ment like a business."
Gaetz got a good reaction
from WRWF members with
the announcement that he
is working on a bill that
would require any Floridian
receiving unemployment
compensation to undergo
drug testing. There were

for a community service re-

tion with unemployment
payments. Gaetz agreed
with the idea but said that
the federal government had
resisted it in the past.
Gaetz expressed strong
support for the Oil Spill Re-
covery Act, legislation for
whom his father is the pri-
mary sponsor, which would,
among other provisions, al-
locate three-fourths of BP
fines or settlements coming
to Florida to Northwest Flor-
ida's seven coastal counties.
Senator Gaetz' reasoning
with regard to the proposed
legislation has been that
this money should go to the
seven counties because they
"suffered the majority of
the harm" among Florida's
counties as a result of the
BP oil spill.
Representative Gaetz
told the members that pas-
sage of the act could provide
the seven counties with $10
million per year to diversify
the region's economy, at-
tract new businesses and
create jobs.
Gaetz called the recent
entry of Vision Airlines at
Northwest Florida Regional
Airport in Valparaiso "great
news." He predicted sub-
stantial economic impact
and job creation as a result
of the service now being
provided by the low-fare air-


line.

On the topic of the school
system, Gaetz took a posi-
tion in favor of tenure reform
and merit pay for teachers.
He was of the opinion that
teachers who are ineffec-
tive should not have tenure.
Merit pay, he maintained,
would enable quality teach-
ers to earn a better living
while helping the educa-
tion system better meet the
needs of the community.
WRWF guest Cindy Ab-
bott, a retired elementary
school teacher, said she
was in favor of merit pay
but thought relying solely
on the FCAT test as a mea-
sure would be the wrong
approach. Gaetz agreed,
calling for a "cornucopia" of
measurement methods.
Walton County Tax Col-
lector Rhonda Skipper
brought up a bill that is be-
ing proposed to set term lim-
its for constitutional officers
in local governments. She
said she would favor "letting
the people vote" whether to
keep constitutional officers
rather than having their
service automatically termi-
nated after a set number of
years.
Gaetz disagreed. "I be-
lieve in term limits at every
level," he said, adding that


there is value in getting:
"new people" as public ser-
vants.
WRWF President Char-
lotte Flynt asked Gaetz
about his plans for the fu-
ture. He responded that it:
was his hope to serve the:
people of his. district for
eight years, then come home
and work. "My vision' is to"
see Marco Rubio be presi-
dent of the United States,"
he concluded.

The club welcomed new-
members Susan Henry and
Cecilia Jones, Walton Coun-
ty District 5 Commissioner.
Lee Perry announced
that the Walton County Re-
publican Executive Commit-
tee has plans to expand and
has 88 openings for precinct

such as yourselves to con-
sider volunteerism," he told
WCTA members. Programs
are being set up for people
interested in assisting the
county on a volunteer basis.
Demers said the number
of vehicles in the county
fleet has been reduced from
435 in 2008 to 376 for 2011.
The early retirement of
37 county staff over the past
few years has saved over $2
million in salaries and ben-
efits, he explained, and the
majority of those positions
will not have to be refilled.
The goal will be not to fill
empty positions, Demers
said, by consolidating tasks
under current employees.
Attention has gone to en-
ergy conservation as well,
Demers told the gathering,
with energy audits and tim-
ers being placed on water
heaters that are only in use
periodically. Long distance
service for the county has
been renegotiated, as well,
he said, for rate reduction.
Cell phone needs are being
investigated, he said, and
he is looking into whether
work phone sharing is fea-


sible among some employ-
ees. Pooling of vehicles and
job sharing between county
commission employees and
those of the constitutional
officers are other areas be-
ing researched, Demers not-
ed.
The county is looking at
combining the categories of
sick leave and annual leave
into a single category, paid
time off, Demers revealed.
Some departments operate
on a four-day week, and the
efficiency of this schedule
versus a five-day week is be-
ing evaluated. The cost effi-
ciency of paving by contract
versus by county crews is
also being examined.
"Our goal is to lower the
cost of government," Dem-
ers emphasized.
The officials were encour-
aged to set quantitative ob-
jectives for the streamlining
and efficiency-increasing
process.
Suzanne Harris of Edge-
water Beach Condominium
and the WCTA spoke in sup-
port of all county employees
getting raises. Harris also
suggested an ordinance pro-


viding for contractors work-
ing without a license to be
fined, which could provide
revenue for the county.
Bill Bard, a new WCTA
member and organizer for
the Friends of the Walton
County Animal Shelter,
commented that the shelter
could use a lot of volunteer
help.
Bob Hudson, former
WCTA president, asked
the officials about financial
details with the 37 county
staff members who had tak-
en early retirement. Brady
Bearden of Walton County
Human Resources respond-
ed that upon retirement
these employees received
$1,000 per year of service as
a retirement package, along
with reimbursement for 120
days annual leave and 120
days of sick leave, and went
on retiree rates for their
health insurance. Those de-
tails were non-negotiable,
Bearden stated.
WCTA members elect-
ed five new directors at
the 'Jan. 20 meeting, Don
Brown, Frank Day, Peter
Garcia, Linda Harrison, and


Bob Sullivan.
Hudson, president of
the WCTA for the past two
years, announced that, in
accordance with the by-laws
of the organization, he had
stepped down as president
upon being elected in the
2010 election as a commis-
sioner for the South Walton
Mosquito Control District,
with Bonnie McQuiston be-
ing selected as interim pres-
ident at that time by WCTA
board members. He thanked
the officials who had com-
plied with this records re-
quest and expressed appre-
ciation for the restructuring
of the county government to
meet the needs of the com-
munity.
He remarked on how
much Hilton Lawson, a
founding WCTA member,
would be missed. Lawson
passed away in Oct. 2010.
Hudson commented that
the WCTA would also be
looking at changes to the
organization's structure and
would be adding a category
for advisory board mem-
bers, upon which the WCTA
would rely heavily. Another


anticipated change would be
a move toward enlisting an
executive director, he noted.
Hudson said the WCTA
fraud hot line had been dis-
continued due to funding
concerns. Also, the organi-
zation's "Porker Award" has
been replaced with a more
positive practice, he ex-
plained, the "Best Practices
Award," which was recently
bestowed on the Walton Tax
County Collector's Office for
its strategic plan, the "Jour-
ney to Excellence" program.,
The WCTA, Walton Coun-
ty's oldest surviving taxpay-
er organization, has been
in existence for 28 years..
WCTA objectives include
advocating for lower taxes
and seeking transparency
in government, accountabil-
ity from public officials, and
fair and equitable represen-
tation.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 27,2011


Last week, former
Arkansas Governor and
FOX News Network talk
show host, Mike Huckabee,
spoke at Sandestin on the
importance of music and
arts in the school system.
With more and more budget
cuts taking place across the
board, what can save the
fine arts from extinction?
Last Tuesday, in front of
a sold-out crowd, Mike
Huckabee spoke about all
the major issues that are
facing the nation right now.
From unemployment, to the
economy, he gave his
thoughts and what he
would possibly do if he were
able to take another run at
the office of President.
No solid answers were
given, or no .obvious clues
on rather he would run, or
not, but each person
attending the breakfast left
the ballroom with a few
more questions about 2012.
But it was not his
discussion about the
economy, the state of the
nation, or any other topic
that got my attention, but
what he said about the
music and fine arts
program in the school
systems in America.
Huckabee put a strong
emphasis on the
importance of making sure
that these programs remain
an important part of the
grade school curriculum.
What he had to say
about the effects these
courses have on young
minds, grabbed the
attention of all those in the
room. Despite the fact that
he was speaking to a crowd
that is heavily saturated in
the arts along the Emerald
Coast, his notes on this
subject received the most
cheers.
His words resonated
with those in the room,
especially with me, since
my life is all about the arts,
and keeping them alive.
From pre-school age, to the
elderly, who are spending
their later years in assisted
living, the arts are for
everyone and art can be


'A. Art I PS


..- i'-i. i i, i; / c [ e t -it L


created at any age.
Hearing a former
candidate, and possibly a
potential candidate talk
about keeping the arts in
the school curriculum,
rather than why the
democrats and republicans
can't seem to get anything
done in Washington, was
not only refreshing, but
eye-opening. To many,
Huckabee also announced
that he and his wife were
building a home in Blue
Mountain Beach and that is
where he feels the most at
home and creative.
But you wonder if his
words might have fallen on
deaf ears? Could a political
figure, rather than another
Hollywood has-been,
seriously want to bring
back and keep a subjects in
our school systems that
have to do more with
nurturing the creative side
of the brain, than trying to
get the highest score on the
FCAT, or ACT exams?
It has been proven that a
child that has creative
classes and outlets when
attending grade school, will
less likely grow up to be a
burden on society.
Meaning, if a student took
classes to learn how to
paint a picture, sing a song,
or play an instrument, he,
or she, would less likely act
out in class, grow up to live
a productive life, and be
less likely to have run-ins
with the law.
Besides the obvious facts
and findings by numerous
researchers, it has also
been proven that a child
who is taught the fine arts
at a young age is more
likely to finish all 12 years
of school, and continue on


to college. Many of these
students even continue on
to higher degrees in various
fields.
When I was in school,
the chorus, the drama club,'
art classes and other fine
arts were offered to
students. Balanced with a
core of academic classes
and sports, I was able to
experience all that grade
school had to offer, play
sports and be creative, and
had a great desire to
further on to college, and
graduate.
But in the early to mid
90's, and right up to today,
that curriculum that I was
once offered is a fading
memory. Many schools no
longer have choral
programs, no form of art
classes and art studio labs,
drama departments, and
even band is now seeing
state budget slashes that
could cripple the last
remaining creative outlet in
schools. This is happening
right here in our own
county.
About 12 years ago, I
wrote an article entitled,
"Helmets to Hamlet," and
won a state newspaper
award for the piece. It was
a brief editorial of how
students could play sports
and still find time to be
creative, either through art,
writing, singing, playing an
instrument, or just having
a small part in the high
school play.
Since that story was
written, things have
become even more dire as
the state education budgets
are being cut, and funding
for the "extra" curricular
activities are being cut-off.
The fact is, these fine arts


and creative classes should
never be considered
"extras" like membership in
Beta Club, or Anchor Club,
but should be a part of the
everyday required courses.
Walton County still has
a few programs that adhere
to the old motto of "let a
child be creative, and
watch his world blossom
around him." But for the
most part, the programs
and their funding, are
being extinguished.
For those who have
children in the county
school systems, it is time to
take a stand and demand
from your congressman and
state government, that
money be once again
allocated for the fine arts
and that these classes be
offered not as an extra-
curricular class, but as a
"must" take course. Simply
offering after school art and
performance programs that
see very dismal numbers
attending need to be
brought to the forefront
and made to be part of
every students curriculum
from first grade, all the
way to their senior year.
Not only would we see
the number of creative
individuals exiting our
schools, in -the years to
come, we will more than
likely see a decline in
school drop-outs. We would
also be less likely to see
those same students being
a burden on society and
seeing their picture on the
post office bulletin board.
Creativity can take on
any form and any media. It
is up to us to help those
.young minds grasp their
creative side and create
their own works of art in
painting, singing,
sculpting, acting, playing
an instrument, or whatever
is their God-given talent.

Who knows, the next
Hemmingway, or Van Gogh
could be in our school
systems, and what a shame
if we never gave that
student a chance to explore
their creative side!

da Statutes, within fourteen daysof receipt
of notice. The procedures for petitioning
for a hearing are set forth below. A person

by the Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received
by the clerk) in the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, a person may request
enlargement of the time for filing a petition
for an administrative hearing. The request
must be filed (received by the clerk) in the

Department for notice of agency action
may file a petition within fourteen days of
receipt of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicat-
ed above at the time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a petition or request
for enlargement of time within fourteen
days of receipt of notice shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to request an

der Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in
a proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the presid-

compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida
Administrative Code.

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

(a) The name, address, and telephone
number of each petitioner; the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any; the De-
partment permit identification number and
the county in which the subject matter or
activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each pe-
titioner received notice of the Department

contends warrant reversal or modification

alleged, as well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action that
the petitioner wants the Department to
take.

Because the administrative hearing pro-
cess is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that
the Department's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by it in this
notice. Persons whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such final deci-
sion of the Department have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceed-
ing, in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, is not available for this proceed-
ing.
