opens Florida


Chautauqua Assembly


By JEFFREYPOWELL
Florida Chautauqua As-
sembly keynote speaker C6-
line Cousteau opened this
year's festivities with an in-
formative and entertaining
presentation at the Walton
High School auditorium on
Friday, Jan. 28. Cousteau
is the granddaughter of leg-
endary explorer and ocean-
ographer Jacques Cousteau
and is an accomplished film-
maker and environmental-
ist in her own right. Dur-.
ing her talk she impressed
upon attendees the need to
protect the precious waters
of Florida and of the world's
oceans.
"In my world everything
is connected," Cousteau said.
"I care about what happens
to the world and want to be
a voice for what my family
has done for years. We have
to preserve what we have
for generations to come."
Cousteau admitted being


involved in a male-dominat-
ed profession is not always
easy but she had strong role
models to emulate. Most of
the world is familiar with
her grandfather's and fa-
ther's work through many
television specials. What
the world did not know was
that her grandmother and
mother were behind the
scenes and onboard the Ca-
lypso the whole time.
"These two women were
a big influence in my life,"
she said proudly. "This is a
male-dominated field, but
we are working on that. I
was never forced to do any-
thing, I just seemed to come
back to the world's oceans."
Another thing that has
helped her excel is her origi-
nal field of study. She stud-
ied psychology and focused
on interpersonal relation-
ships. "This helped me un-
derstand how people inter-
act with their world."
Cousteau's passions are


not exclusively below the
ocean's surface. In recent
years she has spent many
hours with the people and
creatures of the Amazon Ba-
sin. She has been involved
in a non-profit organization
intended to bring medical
relief to the area. She point-
ed out that there are some
areas were 80 percent of the
population has some form of
hepatitis.
"The Amazon has a hold
on me," she admitted. "These
people are struggling for the
most basic of necessities.
The planet and mankind is
made-up of an intricate web-
bing, pull one piece out and
the-whole thing falls apart. I
realize I have had a unique
life but you can help by ex-
ploring your own backyard.
What we do to the environ-
ment comes back to us."

cent. Only 13.84 percent of
the calls were fire related

seven calls to some type of

Additional calls included


service calls, bomb threats,
controlled burns, and calls
that units were dispatched
and cancelled en-route. The
call volume for 2010 was in
line with the last three years
of calls, but ever showing an
upward trend.
This year the personnel of
Liberty District gave 4452
hours of service to Walton
County. As the call volume
has increased, so has the vol-
unteer hours. The district is
in the process of Fire Fight-
er 1 training during some of

The DeFuniak Springs

reminds citizens of the im-
portance of the pedestrian
laws and their safety. The
police from time to time re-
ceive complaints that motor-

the city, the most recent
complaint was on North 6th

trians access to the east en-
trance of the Walton County

throughout the city, because
everyone's safety is impor-
tant to them. Here is a
brief summary of the Flor-
ida Statues on crosswalks,
pedestrians and etc. If there
are any additional questions
or concerns they encourage

ber of the DFSPD staff.

U.S. 331 rollover


kills Freeport

driver


A Freeport man died Sat-
urday night (Jan. 29) when
his vehicle rolled over on
U.S. 331 south of Freeport.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol (FHP) report states that
Robert Hamilton Lancaster
29, was traveling south
when his vehicle drifted
onto the shoulder. Lan-
caster overcorrected and
lost control, causing the ve-


hicle to rotate, travel across
both lanes and onto the east
shoulder.
The vehicle traveled
through a ditch, a front
yard and a fence, then be-
gan to overturn. Lancaster
was ejected. Lancaster was
found just west of the ve-
hicle, and died at the scene.
The FHP report states that
Lancaster was not wearing
a seatbelt, and the accident
remains under investiga-
tion.

support Friends in its first


fundraising activity without
going into your wallet for
money.

should call (850) 231-6038
or send email to ecarosrb@
embarqmail.com.
For those needing direc-

Thanks

for the

memories



By BRUCE COLLIER


My wife and I welcomed our baby daughter Grace Chris-
tiana into the world and into our families last Monday, Jan.
24, just after 9 p.m. She is a first child for both me and her
mother, and considering that I am a youthful 55, a chal-
lenging lifetime project for her dad.
We had Grace at the Sacred Heart Family Birth Center
in south Walton County, partly because it is near the OB/
GYN's office, mainly because we heard one recommenda-
tion after another of the place. We were not misled. From
start to finish, it's a class act.
We checked into the center on a Sunday evening to begin
induction, my wife having had what was to be her last non-
IV meal for more than 24 hours. We called the evening "din-
ner and a baby." We spent all day Monday getting ready
for delivery, and receiving visits from family and friends. I
moved around a lot, checking the lobby for new arrivals and
letting them know the progress. It's amazing how fast a day
can pass doing little or nothing but watching and waiting. I
had brought magazines and tried to read them, but mostly
I just flipped pages. I recalled how, when I was born, dads
were not persona grata in the delivery area, and how my
own father was sent out to "go see a movie or something"
while my mother set about birthing me. Dad said he saw
The Caine Mutiny, but didn't recall a minute of it. He made
it a point to see it later when things calmed down. It was
one of his favorite movies.
I spent a lot of time prior to that day thinking about what
I would do, which became a case of what I should do, and
trying to remember all the helpful advice I had been given
in the class my wife and I took about preparing for birth.
("OK, breathing...is it'short-long, long-short, hoo-hoo-hee or
hee-hee-hoo?") I'm good at memorizing lines, but memoriz-
ing breathing is another thing entirely. There's no exam, at
least not a written one.
My wife can be a pretty stoic little woman, so I do not
always know how much pain she is feeling. The nurses and
attendants seem to favor a 1- 10 scale, as in 1 is "no pain,"
10 is "give me someone to throttle." At least now they call
it pain. When I was a kid they finessed it as "discomfort."
("Bruce, this three-foot needle we're inserting may cause
you some discomfort.")
When all conditions were right for delivery, the decks
were cleared and the doctor and her team came in dressed
out, rolling tables covered in instruments I tried not to look
at. Some of them sure did gleam.
I'm not going to describe the birthing process, except
to say there was a beautiful and healthy baby girl at the
conclusion of it. She weighed 8.75 pounds, with a full head
of glossy brown hair, a remarkably strong voice, and no
qualms about using it.
In the weeks leading up to Grace's birth, I wondered how
I would feel or what I might say, figuring I might either
break down entirely or summon up a Churchillian quote
that would make everyone reach for their pens. I did nei-
ther. At the end of the evening (around 2 a.m. the next day,
actually), I was watching one of the nurses clean my little
girl and wash her hair. As Grace howled and shook her lit-
tle limbs at us (she was unused to all that open space, I was
told), the nurse asked me what I thought of the delivery.
Here was my chance to say something immortal.
What I actually said was, "I have absolutely nothing to
compare it to. There's never been a day like this in my life."
The statement, while lacking in eloquence, was perfectly
true.
To all those who helped Dr. Esses, Shannon, Joanrie,
Stacey, Kirsten, Janice, Regina, the Day Nurse Whose
Name I Can't Remember, The Respiratory Guy, the people
who brought food and cleaned up the rooms, the man at the
security desk who assured me the child looks like me, and
everyone else, thanks and God bless. We may just be back
sometime.

Editor:
The latest newsletter I received from Congressman Jeff
Miller addressed the deliberate attack on Arizona Con-
gresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Saturday, Jan. 8. He stat-
ed "It was an attack on all of those who serve in this institu-
tion, and an attack on innocent civilians and their families.
It is a shame that what was meant to be a simple exercise
of democracy became a nightmare because of the acts of a
troubled man. We cannot allow this senseless act of terror
to tarnish the true spirit of representative democracy, and
we must honor those who, through their participation in
the democratic process, ensure the true exercise of our con-
stitutional liberties. Throughout the history of our nation,
Americans have stood together in times of tragedy. As we
keep the victims in mind, we honor that tradition. Through
solidarity and prayer, our nation will support those affected
by this horrific event. Some have tried to place the blame
for this violence on the political process; however, to do so
is callous and wrong. This shooting was the act of one de-
ranged individual."
It's hard to believe in America there are these left wing
nuts have nothing else to do except spew out all this politi-
cal controversy because of one man's desire to kill people
just for an hour of fame, and because he was so obsessed
with vengeance as a disgruntled former employee of Con-.
gresswoman Giffords. Sarah Palin had nothing to do with
this crazy man deciding to do what he chose to do. It was


Editor:
To all who attended the Christmas Eve Service at First
United Methodist Church: Thank you so much for your at-
tendance and generosity. We collected $2,284.15 for our
White Christmas Fund. This enabled us to reach a grand
total of $17,515.15.
The staff and children at the United Methodist Chil-


Gov. Rick Scott proposed bringing back the De-
partment of Commerce on Thursday as a hard-charging
agency responsible for aggressively marketing Florida as
"the place to do business." In brief remarks to Enterprise
Florida, a consortium of major corporations that works
with the state on business promotion, Scott gave no details
of how the new department would be structured. But'he
drew praise from the business roundtable for his plan to
speed permitting, reduce regulation, improve workforce
education and recruit new businesses. "We're looking at
how we make government work better," Scott said. "I want
to streamline how we do economic development, so what
I want to do is set up a Department of Commerce." The
old department was broken up in 1996, when Gov. Lawton
Chiles got the Legislature to shift economic development
efforts into partnerships like Enterprise Florida. Scott ran
for governor last year with a "Let's get to work" campaign
theme, promising to lower taxes, cut regulation and create
a climate that creates 700,000 new jobs in seven years. "I
want to have a secretary in my office, two doors from my
office. I want them to be the one to work with Enterprise
Florida," he said. "They'll work with (the Office of Tourism
Trade and Economic Development) and they'll work with
the Agency for Workforce Innovation ... so we don't have
this group doing one thing, and this group doing something
else." Mark Wilson, president of the Florida Chamber of
Commerce, and Barney Bishop, head of Associated Indus-
tries of Florida, praised Scott's idea. Creation of the agency
will take legislative action in the 2011 session, and both
Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, and
House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, said they
will work with Scott. "We're unified in what we're going to
do to make this the place to do business," said Scott. "The
fact that Gov. Scott will be so engaged in this new agency,
to the point where it will be elevated to 'plaza level' sta-
tus, is more than encouraging," Bishop said, of the Capi-
tol's first floor where the governor and Cabinet officers have
their offices. "It's the promise of a new day when Floridians
are looking for work, but actually getting work." Scott said
he will offer budget proposals Feb. 7 that meet a $3.6 bil-
lion projected revenue shortage and reduce taxes. "I believe
business people create jobs, the government doesn't create
jobs," said Scott, a former hospital executive who ran for his
first public office last year. "We have a wonderful opportu-
nity. ... If you look around the nation, we are the state that
can win. There is absolutely no reason that we won't be the
job creator." By Bill Cotterell, Florida Capital Bureau
The Senate's comprehensive oil spill recovery leg-
islation moved through a second hearing Thursday with a
ripple of discontent about spending $30 million over three
years and restricting three-fourths of any fines and penal-
ties ultimately collected go to Florida's seven westernmost
Gulf Coast counties. The bill includes a three-month sales-

proven that he didn't even watch TV or listen to radio talk
shows, so it is evident that he was not persuaded by con-
servative talk shows, even though the liberal media would
have.us think so. I was happy to see that Palin came on
Hannity's talk show on Fox News and cleared that matter,
if anyone had any doubt about her thoughts. And any who
might doubt who the REAL Sarah Palin is, should read her
latest book America by Heart. I admire her for her love for
God and Country.
Along with former governor Sarah Palin and Congressman
Miller and millions of Americans, we will continue our
thoughts and prayers for those who were shot and injured,
and with the families of those who were killed on Jan. 8 in
Arizona.
To think that the idea of doing away with all our guns
because of one crazy man is absurd. That would just be
another one of our constitutional rights taken away from
us. If guns were done away with do you think that would
stop a person who is determined to kill? I think not. They
would just use whatever is available at the time. For in-
stance, wire themselves to a homemade bomb. There has
been murderers as far back as Cain and always will be.
I don't think there were any guns to be found when Cain
killed his brother, Abel in the book of Genesis.

tax holiday on boats in the seven most-affected counties.
That could save buyers, and cost the state, more than $15
million this year. Marina owners who make lease payments
for submerged lands owned by the state would get a break
on the rent. The proposal, sponsored by Sen. Don Gaetz,
R-Niceville, was unanimously approved by the Transpor-
tation, Tourism and Economic Development Appropria-
tions Committee he chairs. But not before questions were
raised. Sen. Larcenia Bullard, a Miami Democrat, ques-
tioned Gaetz about promising $10 million in three annual
contracts for economic development this year and the next
two. "We should fund annually, but not place in statute to
just continue to roll it over," Bullard said. Gaetz reminded
other senators that the state aided South Florida following
Hurricane Andrew and tourism-heavy Central Florida fol-
lowing 9/11. He said a three-year recovery plan is essential
for Northwest Florida, but emphasized the Legislature will
have to approve the spending each year. "We have to justify
and re-justify the appropriations," Gaetz said. "I certainly
hope we can justify a recurring appropriation that will yield
a multiplier to the state" with increased economic activity
in the hard-hit areas. Bullard voted for the bill that passed
13-0. The legislation, based on a study commissioned from
the University of West Florida's Haas Center for Business
*Research and Economic Development, focuses relief on
Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf and
Franklin counties, the Panhandle areas hit hardest by the
2010 Deepwater Horizon spill. Waive criteria in the seven
counties for state business incentive programs. Seventeen
programs would possibly be easier for projects in the im-
pacted counties, ranging from the Economic Development
Transportation Fund to the Military Base Retention Grant
Program. Extend permits for six months in the affected
counties for such things as construction and wetlands. A
three-month state marine-related sales-tax holiday from
July 1-Sept. 30 for boats and boating equipment. A staff
analysis estimated it could cost the state $15.4 million this
fiscal year. Contract with Florida's Great Northwest Inc.,
the economic development group in the Panhandle, to de-
velop a recovery plan that focuses on diversifying the area's
economy. The proposal includes $10 million this year, and
another $10 million each in 2011 and 2012, but the Leg-
islature would have to appropriate it again. Commits 75
percent of fines or penalties paid to the state as a result of
the spill to the seven counties. Grants rebates on lease pay-
ments for sovereign submerged lands. The committee also
passed four memorials, messages to Congress that don't
have the force of law. They recommend tax relief for those
hurt by the spill, restricting penalties be spent on environ-
mental and economic damage and extending unemploy-
ment help for those who lost jobs because of the spill. After
one more Budget Committee approval, the bill will be teed
up for consideration by the full Senate when session begins
in March. By Paul Flemming, Florida Capital Bureau

at $80,000, were considered
for purchase with reserves
funds.
Councilman Don Harrison
disagreed with taking mon-
ey from reserves, stating, "If
you don't have money, you
don't buy things." Harrison
noted the reserves have de-
creased from $7 million to
$4.9 million since 2007 and


continued, "I think the tim-
ing is wrong...we don't have
the money or immediate
need for [the property]... [I]
see [property for city hall]
as a purchase in four to five
years."
Mayor Harold Carpen-
ter -said, "Now is the time
to 'purchase the property...
it's the first piece of the puz-
zle."
Mayor Pro-Tempore
James Huffman agreed with
Carpenter, stating, "At some


point we have to decide what
we want to do as a city.. .We
spent taxpayer dollars to do
studies [which found this
was the best property]...we
need to look forward, we've
outgrown these buildings.
At some point, if you're go-
ing to have a vision, you
have to take a step in that
direction."
Kirby said the risk the
Council will take is to either
"purchase, the property and
city hall may or may not be


built there and [if not], it can
be sold, or don't purchase
the property and it may or
may not be available in the
future."
Huffman motioned to
move forward with bank ne-
gotiations for the property,
seconded by James Coffield.
The motion failed three-to-
two, Henry Ennis, Wayne
Graham, and Harrison op-
posing.

CHIEF MARK WEEKS assists a student in getting his
fingerprints on record.


Chief Weeks speaks at

First Christian Academy

and Rotary forum


By ALICIA LEONARD

Florida lawmakers have
taken notice of the media
frenzy surrounding recent
high profile gun related
deaths and have submit-
ted or are in the process of
submitting several new bills
that could change gun laws
in Florida.
One bill finalized last
week was filed by Rep.
Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama
City) that would seek to al-
low people in specific posi-
tions in county government
to carry concealed weapons
into restricted places such
as public meetings. Many
believe the frightening epi-


sode with the Bay County
School shooter is a driving
force behind the filing, as
other media outlets have
reported Bay County School
Board member Steve Moss
approached Patronis after
the incident.
Current restrictions in
place in Florida law pro-
hibits concealed weapons in
certain places such as police
stations, courtrooms, public
meetings and schools. The
proposed bill would allow
exempting for school board
members, county constitu-
tional officers and county
commissioners.
Sen. Greg Evers, (R-
Baker) has sponsored a bill


that goes a step further
than Patronis's bill. Evers is
seeking to allow individuals
who already possess a con-
cealed weapons permit to
openly carry their weapons
and would also change the
restrictions on allowing the
permitted to carry openly
at colleges, universities and
other institutions of higher
learning.
Evers, along with Rep.
Jason Brodeur (R-Sanford)
have also filed identical bills
restricting a physician from
asking if they owned a gun.
Under the legislation, if the
bill were made into law, a
physician could face a $5
million fine and face up to


five years in prison for ask-
ing if guns are in the homes
with adult or pediatric pa-
tients. The Florida Medical
Association has come out as
strongly opposed to the bill.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fort
Walton Beach) is said to be
preparing a bill for submit-
tal similar to a bill filed by
Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart)
that regulates gun laws and
control to the state and lim-
its or prohibits local govern-
ment from enacting laws or
passing regulation that goes
farther than state law.
Those interested can
track these bills and more at
the Florida Senate web site
www.flsenate.gov


DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal and Chief of Po-
lice Mark A. Weeks spoke
Jan. 21 to students at First
Christian Academy, on the
importance of having their
fingerprints easily acces-
sible. Weeks, Sgt. Phillip
Austin and Evidence and
Property Technician Donna
Adams fingerprinted all the
children who attended.
On Jan. 26, Weeks at-


tended a Rotary Club Fo-
rum, addressing attendees
on the state of the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department.
He spoke on the agency's
growth over the past five
years, and on two specific
drug threats to the commu-
nity: synthetic marijuana
(a.k.a. "legal marijuana")
and synthetic cocaine, a.k.a.
"bath salts."

Executive Director of Ani-

Society Sherry Ramsey will
be speaking at the event.
Also speaking is nationally
recognized animal cruelty
advocate, Sherry Schlueter,
who initiated, co-authored
and lobbied for the original
felony aggravated animal
abuse statute that became
law in Florida in 1989.
Laurie Hood, Founder and
President of Alaqua Animal
Refuge made the following
statements: "Having seen
the tragic results of animal
abuse from burned cats
to dogs with broken limbs
to starved horses we at
Alaqua Animal Refuge were


compelled to take action. It
is time to do more than shel-
ter animals from cruelty, we
want to stop the abuse. By
giving our law enforcement
personnel the tools to thor-
oughly investigate and suc-
cessfully prosecute cases, we
are clearly saying there is
no more tolerance for these
crimes and animals abusers
in Northwest Florida will be
punished," she said.
Hood added, "Increasing
animal-welfare awareness
is at the heart of Alaqua An-
imal Refuge's mission, but
this is an effort we can not
accomplish alone. Thanks to
State Attorney Bill Eddins,
through this seminar, we are
making incredible strides
for the humane treatment
and protection of animals in

County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) arrested Patrick
Ethan Johnson, 46, of Fort
Walton Beach, for posses-
sion of a firearm or ammuni-
tion by a convicted felon and
possession of a controlled

Johnson contacted the
WCSO, alleging that his ve-
hicle was being monitored
by a government agency.
Deputies were dispatched
to Johnson's location at
10685 U.S. 98 West, where
he granted them access to
search his vehicle for suspi-
cious 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.

Chautauqua Assembly


highlights Florida history


and global mindedness


By ASHLEY MASON

Hundreds turned out for
the annual Chautauqua
Assembly this year featur-
ing keynote speaker C6line
Cousteau, granddaughter
to the legendary Jacques
Cousteau. Although not the
official theme of the assem-
bly, the message throughout
the four-day conference was
improving the world, from


Cousteau's focus on conserv-
ing the environment to Pa-
mela Landwirth's village for
children with life- threaten-
ing illnesses.
The unique diversity and
cultural landscape of Florida
was showcased in presenta-
tions on the state's weather,
history, midwives, religion,
railroads, music, wildlife,
genealogy and even the na-
tion's roots as performed by


the Spanish Lady of St. Au-
gustine.
Exciting wildlife exhibits
featured monkeys, camels,
birds of prey and other ex-
otic animals, highlighting
how these creatures are the
world's truest ambassadors.
The breadth of topics em-
phasized the global connect-
edness we all share and was
a journey into Florida and
beyond.

PETS OF THE WEEK


VICTOR

By M. Vreeland
"V" is for vim, vigor and ...Victor! Besides
brimming over with vitality, this Labrador/Hound '
mix is one of the friendliest dogs the staff and vol-
unteers at Alaqua Animal Refuge have ever had the
pleasure of meeting. He loves people, other animals
and life in general. While he's very fond of all his
friends at the sanctuary, Victor's greatest hope is
to find a loving forever home with a nice fenced in
yard. Another canine companion who also enjoys
romping and playing the hours away would be an
added bonus. If your life could use a little boost in
the joy department, come by and pass some time
with Victor. He's available from Tuesday through
Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. Even if you're not
ready for a pet just now, meeting this delightful dog
will give you lots of reasons to smile.
Alaqua Animal Refuge is a non-profit, no-kill
shelter, located at 914 Whitfield Road, Freeport.
They welcome everyone to visit all the adoptable an- N '
imals at their beautiful 10-acre sanctuary any Tues-
day through Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. For more
information, call them at (850) 880-6399 or check
out their website at www.aarflorida.com.




CASEY

Pretty Miss Casey, a terrier mix who's between
one and two years old, is our dog of the week! Her
foster mommy tells us that she loves to be outside
and would love to have a home with a big fenced
in yard to run and play in. She enjoys spending
time with the family in the evening curled up in her
recliner watching TV. This girl has lots of love to
share so contact the Walton County Animal shelter
at (850) 892-8682 to set up a visit!

COUNTRY MUSIC LEGEND Merle Haggard played many of his old favorites and a few new songs.


Country music legend



Merle Haggard visits PC


Story and photos by
JEFFREYPOWELL

In his 50-plus
years in the coun-
try music industry
Merle "the Hag"
Haggard has had 40
number one hits and
has performed his
music around the
world. On Thursday,
Jan. 27, he and his
longtime band The
Strangers played
to a packed house
at the Marina Civic
Center in downtown


Panama City. The
show was opened by
the Malpass Broth-
ers, a young duo
that performs in a
throwback style of
years gone by. Hag-
gerd's son Noal Lee
Haggard also sang
several songs off his
latest release.
At 73, Haggard
has had a life full'
of trials and tribu-
lations. As a young
boy he and his fam-
ily lived in an old


home had burned.
His father died of a
stroke when he was
nine and by the time
he was 10 years old
he had hopped on a
freight train before
being picked up by
authorities. At age
15 Haggard was ar-
rested as a suspect
in a robbery case.
He was innocent of
this charge but it led
to his first of several
incarcerations. At
20, Haggard was in


boxcar after their San Quentin Pris-


on on an attempted
robbery conviction.
Throughout it all
Haggard wrote and
performed his com-
mon man music to
anyone that would
listen. With his wild
ways behind him,
Haggard now seems
happy to sing his
songs and revel in
the fact that he has
lasted this long.
After a particu-
larly seamless gui-
tar solo the some-
time rambunctious


crowd gave Haggard
a rousing applause.
After he stood at
the microphone for
a moment he re-
sponded, "A person
that can still do that
at my age deserves
a little applause."
This brought about
even more appre-
ciation from the at-
tendees.
During the show
Haggard recognized
his longtime friend
the late Johnny Cash
by singing "Folsom


Prison Blues." He
also played many of
his classic tunes and.
a few new songs.
Haggard also dis-
played his musical
dexterity by playing
the fiddle on sever-
al tunes. "You guys
didn't think I had
that in me did you,"
he joked.

Haggard was re-
cently invited to the
White House as a
Kennedy Center in-
ductee.


HAGGARD'S SON NOAL performed several songs before his father took the stage.


THE MALPASS BROTHERS opened the show.

Project Princess in urgent need of


special gowns and cocktail dresses Ie ffySnyer owef


Project Princess collection
efforts are underway for the
2011 prom season. The proj-
ect provides local teen girls
in need with prom gowns.
Dress supplies are low and
donations are greatly need-
ed. Several area businesses
and government offices in
Walton County are serving
as collection sites. Monetary
donations can also be made
to the cause through the
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce Foundation.
This year is the third
year Project Princess will
supply prom dresses to area
teen girls. Gown donations
are collected at the begin-


ning of each year and fitting
days are scheduled to allow
the teens an opportunity to
look through the gowns and
select the perfect dress for
them. Area seamstresses
lend their skills to tailor the
dresses to each girl.
Dress donations are par-
ticularly critical this year
with the dress supply from
previous years having been
greatly depleted.
"The first year we re-
ceived an abundance of do-
nations, but that wasn't the
case last year. We're really
asking for the community's
support to dig through their
closets and part with some


Dear Auntie Em,


It is that time of year
again. It's the cold and flu
season. Just as soon as I get
over it, my kids bring it back
from school and give me the
bug again. I'm tired of the
coughing and sneezing, sore
throat and not being able to
breathe through my nose.
All the kids were sick with
it last week and now I have
it again. Any advice on how
we can stop spreading it
back and forth?

Flu Bugged in Florida

Dear Bugged,
: Sorry to hear you're un-
der the weather. Auntie Em
is not a doctor, but there
are a few things you and
your kids can do to ease
the symptoms. First, if you
or your kids are running a
high temperature or experi-
ence shortness of breath, or
A nagging cough, you need to
call your doctor. Also, speak
with your doc about getting
flu shots every year. Many


swear by them.
Second, hand-washing
is a biggie, when it comes
to keeping the bugs at bay.
Really express this to your
kids. Always wash your
hands. Warm water and
soap are all you need. In a
pinch, use an antibacterial
gel. Auntie Em doesn't real-
ly care for these gels, but if
they are not overused, they
work well. Doorknobs and
telephones are big culprits
for germs to pass. Wash your
linens in hot water if you
can and break out the Lys-
ol spray around the house.
Hydration is also really im-
portant. Also, make sure to
get lots of liquids this time
of year. We cannot confirm
that Vitamin C helps, but it
can't hurt.
Other swear by a nettie
pot, you can find at the local
store, but Auntie Em likes
just simple saline spray a
few time a day in the nose
to help keep passages clear
and it doesn't let infections


of their stylish and beauti-
ful dresses to supply these
girls with a dream dress for
prom. With the first prom for
Walton County approaching
on March 12, we're in great
need of dress donations and
seamstress volunteers," said
Michelle Schack, event or-
ganizer and a founder of the
project.
Dress donations are be-
ing accepted at the following
sites: DeFuniak Springs City
Hall, Resort Quest, Keller
Williams Realty, Regions

set up. Last, but not least,
clean out those air filters
on your heaters or replace
with new ones. Also, use
a humidifier in the home
when you run the heat. Dry
heat really makes noses and
throats uncomfortable, and
don't forget the homemade
chicken soup. If you are all
sick, the kind that comes
from a can will do. It's good
for the soul as well as the
body. God bless and wishing
you a germ-free future.

Happy 12th
Birthday


Sierra Paige
Richards


Love from
all family


In the realm of mother-
hood, I've noticed there are
three camps.

In Camp A are the Super-
moms. These moms host ev-
ery play date, every holiday
party, and provide healthy
snacks kids will actually
eat. Supermoms have never
left -their children with a
babysitter, not for an an-
niversary, not for an office
party, not for a moment. Su-
permoms never send their
children out of doors alone,
or to others' houses for slee-
povers. Supermoms are self-
less, never too tired to play
tag or hide and go seek.
Supermoms buy the latest,
greatest toys, always make
time for bedtime stories and
never forget to brush their
children's teeth. Super-
moms' children walk early,
are potty trained early, and
have excellent social skills.
Supermoms' children are
usually on the homecoming
court, a member of every
club and athletic team, and
are president of a sorority/
fraternity at college.
SIn Camp B are the go-
with-the-flow moms (known
as Wisemoms). Wisemoms
often have several children,
a full-time job, an active
social calendar and have
the wisdom to realize be-
ing overwhelmed benefits
no one. Therefore, they go
with the flow, dispelling
stress as if they had a mag-
ic wand. Wisemoms don't
worry about a broken bone,
that's why they have insur-
ance. Wisemoms don't worry
about sinus infections or ear
infections, that's why ad-
enoids can be taken out and
tubes can be put in. Wis-
emoms don't read parenting
magazines or check their
children's meals against the
nutritional pyramid. In fact,
as long as their children are
eating anything with any


nutritional value, they're
happy. Wisemoms are mas-
ter organizers; with bind-
ers of clipped coupons they
can turn a $350 grocery bill
into $42. Wisemoms know it
doesn't matter if they volun-
teer to help with the school
carnival or holiday pageant,
as long as the kids have fun.
Wisemoms don't need a pat
on the back and they are no
one's martyr. A wisemom
can laugh about the fact
that her child didn't walk
until he was 18 months and
wasn't fully potty trained in
Kindergarten. Wisemoms
let their kids climb trees,
pet unfamiliar animals, at-
tend sleepovers, and they
don't even pack antibacte-
rial handwash. Wisemoms'
children transition easily
into adulthood; they'll have
jobs at 16, pay for their first
car, and be the go-to in col-
lege dorms for balancing a
checkbook, making a bud-
get, and cooking dinner.
In Camp C are mothers
like myself, the measuring-
cup-moms (known hereto-
fore as McMoms). McMoms
dreamed of and prepared to
be Supermoms-they read
every parenting magazine,
learned all about vaccines,
organic cleaning products,
and how to decipher the
ingredients label. To be ex-
act, McMoms are precise.
Yet once their children ar-
rived-their up-all-night,
screaming, teething, de-
manding, won't eat a green
vegetable children- they
discovered all of those pre-
cise preparations went out
the window. An even tough-
er break for the McMom, she
can't relinquish her dreams
of Supermom-ness enough
to relax and be a Wisemom.
Therefore, McMoms
are precisely one thing:
stressed. McMoms forget
their children's bottle when
going on an outing, realize


they are out of diapers one
change too late, and for-
get to give the full round of
antibiotics. On the nights
McMoms remember to read
their children Love You
Forever, they crawl across
the floor to their sleeping
babies and promise to do a
better job tomorrow, then
read more parenting tips
and learn there is a name
for their parenting method.
It's called surviving.
McMoms' children sur-
vive too. They are happy in
knowing they will be held
when they cry, can have a
bottle until they're two, and
can sleep with their par-
ents as long as they please
(in fact, McMoms count it
as one for the home team
that children who sleep in
bed with their parents have
more confidence and less
anxiety as adults, a statis-
tic they learned from one of
many parenting resources).
McMoms' children can have
sleepovers at their houses,
play in the backyard only


where they can be seen from
inside, and sometimes re-
member to wash their hands
before dinner.
This McMom's child will
have a savings account be-'
fore preschool and learn
about credit scores by ado-
lescence, but will also likely
have his first car given to
him, his college paid for and
bring his laundry home on
the weekends, when we'll
sit around and talk about
his fraternity president and
the kid who balances every-
body's else's checkbook and
harbors an illegal hotplate.
And sitting there with
my freshman in college,
I'll remember this column,
how among the mother-
hood camps, it can feel as if
we're in a game of capture
the flag. Who's better, stron-
ger, smarter? Who is rais-
ing their children the best?
I'll smile to think how silly
I was, comparing camps,
when all that mattered was
how many memories we
made before camp was over.

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,
call Alex Alexander at 951-

This was a devotional
sent to me written by David
Wilkerson.It really spoke di-
rectly to my heart

Sadly, great numbers
of Christians do not know
God's voice. Some can go for
months, even years, without
ever receiving an intimate
word from the Lord in their
inner man.
Oh, God did speak to
them at one time. But over
the years, they've learned
to silence his voice in their
hearts.
Others have been turned
off by so much foolishness
among those who believe
that every word that pops
into their minds is divine.
Such people boast, "God
told me"-yet the "word" they


hear is only their covetous
flesh taking voice!
If you want to know and
hear God's voice in the days
ahead, be ready to have him
speak of cleansing before he
speaks of direction.
Many Christians want
God to tell them how to hold
on to what they've earned,
how to provide for their fam-
ily, how to keep their busi-
ness or career afloat.
But the truth is, before
God gives us a word of direc-
tion in any of these matters,
he'll speak to us about his
commandments.
"These things I command
you, that ye love one anoth-
er" (John 15:17). God will
first speak to you about your
actions at home with your
wife and children-about your
quick temper, your grudges,

Paxton Girls 22-2


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
forced 18 turnovers and held
the visiting Pace Patriots to
14-of-54 shooting from the
floor as they picked up a 60-
36 victory over the Class 5A
squad on Jan. 24.
Paxton took a 9-2 lead
through the first four min-
utes of the game as the Pa-
triots were able to make only
three shots from the floor
during the opening quarter
as they fell behind 15-6.
Paxton went through a
cool shooting spell to start
the second quarter but was
able to maintain their lead
with the help of freshman
Emily Murray as she came
off the bench to score her
only five points of the night


to help the home team to a
27-16 halftime advantage.
Pace could make only
three shots from the floor in
the second quarter as they
finished the first half hitting
only 6-of-24 shots despite a
significant size advantage
under the basket.

The third quarter be-
longed to Paxton's guards
as junior Rebecca Ferreira
drilled five shots from be-
hind the three-point line
to score all 15 of her points
during that eight-minute
span. Krysten Cuchens add-
ed one shot of her own from
behind the bonusphere as
the Bobcats hit all six shots
from the floor in the period
from long distance.


Pace hit only 8-of-30 shots
from the floor in the second
half while 18 turnovers also
hampered their offense on
the night. Krysten Cuchens
led the Bobcats with 20
points in the contest as
she scored 10 points in the
fourth quarter to stave off
any comeback the Patriots
had in mind. Ferreira fin-
ished with 15 points while
Alyssa Dupree posted 13 on
the night.
Paxton closed out the reg-
ular season with a 54-37 win
over Crestview on Thursday
night as Krysten Cuchens
led the way with 15 points.
Paxton finished the regu-
lar season with a 22-2 mark
heading into the District
1, Class A tournament in


Bethlehem. The Bobcats
are the top seed in the event
and will meet the winner of
the Central-Poplar Springs
contest on Friday, Feb. 4, at
6 p.m. with a berth into the
state playoffs on the line.

Game Notes: Paxton has
won 20+ games in seven of
their last eight seasons. Pax-
ton is 3-0 versus Pace since
the 1992-93 season. Crest-
view's 37 points are the most
allowed by the Bobcats in
their last 10 games. Paxton
has won 10 straight games
and will seek their seventh
consecutive district champi-
onship this week. Steve Wil- a_
liams is in his second year
as head coach and holds a
41-12 record at Paxton.

Lady Braves narrowly overcome Freeport 53-50


By REID TUCKER
The Walton Lady Braves
narrowly overcame a visit-
ing Freeport squad after a
tumultuous game that saw
the final score settled by a
mere three-point margin.
The Lady Dogs came
against Walton with some-
thing to prove, eager as
they were to make up for
a devastating 58-17 loss
to South Walton earlier in
the week. Freeport stayed
within striking distance of
the Lady Braves throughout
the game, played Thursday,
Jan. 27, and was just two
free throws shy of the lead
with half a minute to go in
regulation. However, Jes-
sica Moulton, who was at
that time four-for-five from
behind the line, missed both
shots, allowing the Lady
Braves to score enough
points to finish the game 53-


50.
Walton did made a fair
show of spreading its score
around, as Gillian Infinger
lead the way with 16 points,
followed by Lynn Paulk and
Taliah Moore, who each
scored 12. Freeport de-
pended heavily on Moulton
and leading scorer Dannica
Mosher, who put up 14 and
19 points respectively. The
Lady Dogs not only shot
more free throws than did
Walton, making 26 attempts
from the charity stripe, but
was more accurate as well,
as the Braves made only 47
percent of theirs compared
to Freeport's 65 percent.
Moulton lead the way for
Freeport in the first quarter,
draining a brace of 3s and
going two-for-two in free
throws, but it wasn't enough
to keep the Lady Dogs from
falling behind by five at the


end of the period. Te'Ondria
Guice scored six of her seven
points for the Braves in the
first quarter (she would fall
silent again until making a
crucial free throw in the clos-
ing moments of the game).
Moore and Sierra Contreras
scored four points each and
Infinger tallied the first of
her four 3s for the evening.
Mosher alone kept Free-
port alive in the second
quarter by scoring 10 points,
four from 2-pointers and
subsequent and-ones. Wal-
ton similarly hit a dry spot
and was actually outscored
by one point in the period,
though another 3 from In-
finger with 1:49 to go before
the half and a pass to Moore
under the basket from Paulk
kept Walton in the lead at
26-22.
The Lady Dogs edged
closer to Walton after the
start of the second half and
eventually took the lead
with 3:42 to go in the third
quarter. Just a few minutes

0a -MEililsli=


later, Mosher was given a
crack at four free-throws
when Walton head coach
Jerry Hester was removed
from the game over a dis-
pute with the referees. Now
down to Freeport, Paulk
made a free-throw and a
layup, which was followed
by a 2 from Contreras and a
3 from Infinger in the clos-
ing seconds of the quarter
to give Walton a two-point
lead.

Though Paulk opened up
with a 3-point basket and
several 2-pointers, Freeport
quickly clawed its way back
to within three points of the
advancing Lady Braves. The
late game became largely a
battle of attrition: first side
to draw the most fouls and
make the most shots from
the free-throw line wins.
Mosher took to the stripe
on four occasions and scored
three points in the quarter
to put the Lady Dogs ahead
by two at 52-50, but the lead


was short-lived as Infinger
added a field goal to a pair of
good free-throws by Guice.
The late-game push
proved enough for Wal-
ton to squeak by with the
53-50 win, which techni-
cally made them favored to
against South Walton the
coming night. However,


Hester's ejection from the
game means that not only
will Walton High School
face indeterminate fines, he
will also face a seven-day
suspension. Whether or not
Hester will be able to coach
the team in this week's
upcoming district playoff
games remains to be seen.

LYNN PAULK put up a pair of crucial layups and a

ton's back long enough to give the Lady Braves a chance to

Rocky Bayou outlasts Freeport to




win district soccer title 4-1


By REID TUCKER
A three-goal streak late
in the second half netted
Rocky Bayou a 4-1 victory
over Freeport and a third
straight District 1-2A soccer
title.

As the only two teams
making up the district, the
Bulldogs (6-10) and the
Knights (7-8) know from
the outset of the season
they'll face each other in the
district finals. Since they
also go head-to-head twice
during the regular season
means that both teams are
well-versed in the other's


strategy and play style. Fur-
thermore, with a guaranteed
three meetings in the sea-
son, including the final one
for the championship, it's
easy to build up momentum
based on how those regular
season games turned out.
Considering that the
Knights beat Freeport 4-3
and 6-1 in the season's pri-
or matchups (and won last
year's district title 2-1 in
double overtime), it seemed
a given that they would
once again send the Bull-
dogs packing. However, the
game, played Friday, Jan.
28, at Freeport, turned out


to be a back-and-forth battle
until the final minutes of
the second half.
Rocky Bayou coach Steve
Byrd said playing Freeport
three times in the season
gave his squad an undeni-
able advantage in terms
of preparation, but he said
that advantage went both
ways. He said Freeport was
equally well-prepared for
the Knights and could have
pulled out a win were it not
for late-game fatigue.
"We both know each oth-
er," Byrd said. "We know
what to expect, who to
watch...but no matter what
it's hard to beat somebody
three times. When it comes
to games like this it's going
to be close. They didn't re-
ally allow us anything until
the second half when they
got tired. We worked really


hard on getting in shape
and that paid off for us."
Amani Beliveau opened
up for the Knights with a
goal after a corner kick in
the 13th minute and though
it took Freeport's David
Castro until 3:45 to go in the
half to even up the score, it
wasn't for a lack of trying.
Castro and team mate Bryce
Sefo put two shots apiece
on the goal but both either
went wide or were stopped
by Rocky's defense en route
to the net. After Beliveau's
score, the Knights struggled
to find the net with seven
shots on goal, four of which
were stopped short by Free-
port goalie, Levi-Osterhoff,
who had 11 saves in game.
The dead heat of the first
half continued through-
out the majority of the sec-
ond, as Calan Sefo joined


his brother Bryce, Castro
and Dalton Shost in accu-
mulating six shots on the
goal, though two went wide
and four were stopped. The
Knights', who made a com-
bined 11 shots in the second
half, had their volume-of-
fire tactic eventually pay
dividends when Beliveau
broke the silence in the 69th
minute on an assist from
Drew Kirkpatrick.
Freeport looked keen to
answer back but the Bulldog
defensemen ran into trouble
in the game's closing min-
utes, allowing the Knights to
take control of the ball. Joey
Wilson evaded the Bulldogs
to score with six minutes to
go and Kirkpatrick followed
close behind, ripping an-
other goal past Osterhoff in
the 77th minute. With just
minutes left in the game,
a Freeport comeback was
out of the question and the
Knights ran the clock out to


take the win by a three-goal
deficit.
As for the Bulldbgs, head
coach Carla Griffith saw a
silver lining in the loss. By
keeping up with Rocky Bay-
ou, the team proved it could
overcome pre-game jitters,
something that's likely to
prove extremely important
'when the Bulldogs face Port
St. Joe on Thursday.
"I think we surprised
them a little bit," said Grif-
fith. "After the last game I
think they came thinking it
was going to be a lot easier.
When we kept up with them
for the first half we knew it
was doable.
"I think that's a big boost.
The score did not reflect
what they did tonight. I
think they know [a win on
Thursday] is doable and I
think that's going to help us
a lot. We've just got to work
on keeping that stamina
up.

South Walton 5-4 after
trailing for much of the Dis-
trict 2-2A soccer title game
in a contest played on Sat-
tirday afternoon in Port St.
Joe. The Seahawks jumped
to an early lead on strong
play from Edgar Flores and
Roberto De la Torre, who
scored nine minutes into the
first half and at the 25-min-
ute mark, respectively. Jar-
ed Arnold scored twice for
the Sharks by the 35th min-
ute to tie the score. South
Walton took the lead twice
more in the game but Port
St. Joe returned fire to tie it
up on both occasions. Arnold
netted a hat trick two min-
utes into overtime to take
the win for the Sharks, who
will play District 1 runner-
up Freeport on Thursday
in the opening round of the
Class 2A playoffs.
The Walton boys soccer
team lost in the opening

Georgia men's tennis ju-
nior Wil Spencer snagged
the first SEC Player of the
Week honor of the 2011 sea-
son. The native of Ponce de
Leon is on a six-match win-
ning streak that began as
the junior won five matches
on his way to claiming the
SEC Coaches Indoor Cham-
pionships singles title in
Knoxville on Jan. 17. During
that run, Spencer defeated
each of the top three seeds


in the tournament including
the No. 2 ranked player in
the country in Kentucky's
Eric Quigley in the finals.
The title was Spencer's third
since joining the Bulldogs
this past summer, as he won
the ITA Southeast Regional
in October and an ITA Sum-
mer Circuit event back in
July. Spencer is 8-2 against
ranked opponents and 18-4
overall at Georgia.

Clemson is favored to
win both the division and
the outright title, based
on the results of the 2011
ACC Baseball Coaches Pre-
season Poll. The Tigers re-
ceived eight of 12 first place
votes four more than the
Seminoles to get the divi-
sional nod. They were also
selected on seven ballots as
the favorite to win the over-
all championship. Florida
State, which captured its
fifth ACC championship in
2010, was the choice of three
coaches to successfully de-
fend its title.
The No. 5/5 Florida soft-

Alabama claimed four votes
as the favorite to win the
league, while No. 4/7 Ten-

South Walton Defeats PDL Girls


By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton Sea-
hawks avenged a loss to
Ponce de Leon in the season
opener with a 50-32 victory
over the Pirates on Thurs-
day night that extended the
host squad's winning streak
to nine consecutive games.
Senior guard Sam Snider
scored 17 points while Alex
Lovell added 11 points as
the Seahawks earned a split
in the regular season series.
The Pirates could not
overcome a woeful 13-of-
50 shooting night from the
floor as they fell to 22-3 on
the regular season. Ashley
Harper led PDL with eight
points on the night.

South Walton jumped
out to a 13-5 lead after the
first quarter and took a 28-
18 lead into the locker room


by forcing 11 turnovers from
the Pirates in the first half
while the visiting team
could connect on only 7-of-
26 shots from the floor.
The Pirates played the
game without the services
of center Jasmine Flock and
struggled to get anything
going in the lane as South
Walton forced the squad to
settle for outside shots that
would not fall for the major-
ity of the contest.
'South Walton earned a
sweep in the season series
with Freeport as they picked
up a 58-17 victory at home
on Jan. 25. The Seahawks
opened the game with a 24-0
run and led 29-2 after the
first quarter as they hit 12-
of-17 shots from the floor to
quickly distance themselves
from a Bulldogs squad that
was playing the contest


without leading scorer Dan-
nica Mosher.
South Walton led 39-8
at the half and coasted to a
58-17 win behind 15 points
from Sam Snider. South
Walton forced 27 turnovers
in the game and held Free-
port to 7-of-31 shooting from
the floor.
Walton broke the Sea-
hawks winning streak with
a 46-39 victory in DeFuniak
Springs on Friday night as
South Walton enters the
District 2, Class 2A tourney
with a 16-8 mark. South
Walton will likely have to
face Holmes County in a
semi-final contest on Friday
night at Grand Ridge with a
playoff berth on the line.
PDL rebounded from
their loss to the Seahawks
with a 39-18 win over Pleas-
ant Home as the Pirates cel-


ebrated Homecoming and
the regular season finale on
Saturday night.

Walton Girls Sweep SW


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
earned a sweep in the sea-
son series with South Wal-
ton as they posted a 46-39
home victory over the Sea-
hawks on Friday night.
The Braves, who won the
game despite the absence
of head coach Jerry Hester,
turned the Senior Night
event into their 14th victory
of the year as they took ad-
vantage of poor shooting by
the Seahawks to earn their
11th win in their last 12
games against South Wal-
ton.
The Braves held a 10-9
lead after one quarter of
play as junior guard Gil-
lian Infinger canned a pair


of three-point shots in the
opening period to get the
home team off to a solid
start.

The Braves pushed the
lead to 23-19 at the break
as five different players con-
tributed in the scoring while
the Seahawks struggled
with 14 turnovers and 6-of-
21 shooting in the opening
16 minutes of the contest.
Neither team could put
many points on the, score-
board in the third quarter
as they combined for 15
turnovers as the defenses
continued to force a slow
pace to the contest. The
Braves posted a 9-6 scoring
advantage to lead 32-25 af-

Proposal for 723 Whiskey



Bravo on BCC agenda


By DOTTY NIST
County commission-
ers are scheduled to hold a
continuation of their public
hearing on the 723 Whiskey
Bravo redevelopment pro-
posal.
The item is part of the
agenda for the. Feb. 8 Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) regu-
lar meeting.
The BCC public hearing
process on the 723 Whiskey
Bravo proposal began on
Jan. 11, with commissioners
listening to over two hours
of testimony and public in-
put. The hearing was con-
tinued, with county staff
being directed to review the
traffic circulation plan for
the project to insure that it
would work satisfactorily.
Located on the north side
of CR-30A in Seagrove, the
property for which the proj-
ect is proposed is 1.16 acre


in size and contains the for-
mer Wheelhouse restaurant
and five tourist cottages.
New property owner Skip
Moore has plans to replace
the circa-1953 restaurant
building with a new struc-
ture slightly smaller in area
and located further back
on the property in order to
comply with current setback
requirements of the land de-
velopment code. The plans
would eliminate the current
parking spaces along CR-
30A at the front of the res-
taurant and provide parking
at the back of the building.
The restaurant is to
be 4,225 square feet on
the lower level with a
1,448-square-foot roof plat-
form. A 316-square-foot. ad-
dition is proposed to the ex-
isting commercial building
on the property, and the five

with Peter Bos (center), CEO of Legendary, Inc. receiving this year's Florida Hotelier of the
Year award.



Peter Bos named 2011


Florida Hotelier of the Year


The Florida Restaurant &
Lodging Association (FRLA)
named Legendary Inc. CEO
Peter Bos the Hotelier of
the Year last week at the
FRLA's Annual Awards
and Installation of Officers
in Tampa, Florida at Sad-
dlebrook Resort in Tampa.
The FRLA Board of Direc-
tors, comprised of the na-
tion's leading restaurateurs
and hoteliers, chose Bos for
this distinctive honor based
on the hotelier's personal
record of industry achieve-
ments over a period of 20
years. Only those nominees
who have attained career
distinctions of the highest
level and are held in high
esteem for their notable ser-
vice to their industry, com-
munity, and charitable or-
ganizations are considered.
Carol Dover, CEO of
FRLA said, "We were hon-
ored to present this top in-


dustry honor to Peter Bos,
an illustrious example of
Hotelier of the Year." Bos
is founder of Legendary,
Inc. in Destin, Florida. He
is also chairman, president
and CEO of Bos Group, Inc.
which was formed in 1976
and Legendary Holding, Inc.
which he founded in 1991. As
the developer of some of the
largest and most prestigious
resorts in Florida, the Leg-
endary name is synonymous
with full-service hospitality
and outstanding real estate
developments, including
residential, retail, resort ho-
tel and office projects along

behind several successful
real estate developments
including Sandestin Resort,
Regatta Bay, Rutherfords
465, Destin Commons, The
Emerald Grande and Har-
borWalk Village.
Beginning his career in


hospitality while attending
Cornell University School
of Hotel Administration and
later working for Interstate
United Inc., Bos began his
career overseeing the food
and beverage operations
at amusement park, Cedar
Point in Sandusky, Ohio.
Bos later moved to Busch
Gardens Tampa to oversee
food ard beverage opera-
tions. His career in develop-
ment took off quickly when
in his first months in Tampa,
he met Jerome Fletcher who
convinced him to move to
Jacksonville to become EVP
of Fletcher Properties, Inc.
The job included the con-
struction of three country
clubs, thousands of residen-
tial units and a free stand-
ing restaurant all located
in the southeastern United

Officials show


support for Grand


Boulevard theater


By DOTTY NIST
At the request of the
Howard Group, county com-
missioners approved a letter
of support for the establish-
ment of a cinema theater in
the Grand Boulevard Town
Center at Sandestin.
The approval took place
at the Jan. 25 Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting in
DeFuniak Springs.
The letter of support ex-
presses the commission's
interest in "promoting the
arts, cultural growth, and
entertainment in Walton
County for the benefit of
its citizens, visitors and the
general public." It also ref-
erences a recognition of "the
potential economic impact"
of the theater.


Currently the closest
movie theaters to south
Walton County are in Destin
and Panama City Beach.
No information has been
made available on the size
of the proposed theater or
other details at this time.
Judith Williams, director of
development for the How-
ard Group, said that a loca-
tion for the theater within
the Grand Boulevard Town
Center has not been pin-
pointed at this time.
The pedestrian-friendly
Grand Boulevard Town
Center encompasses a vari-
ety of retail stores, service
businesses, spas and beauty
parlors, restaurants, spe-
cialty food stores, a grocery
store, and professional of-
fices.

award from The National Garden Clubs, Inc. for their

Land use certificate, parking

regulations on Feb. 8 agenda


By DOTTYNIST
County commissioners
are scheduled to take up two
ordinances in public session
at their Feb. 8 regular meet-
ing.
One of those involves a
certificate of land use com-
pliance program aimed at
ensuring that all county
land use requirements are
met when a business locates
at a particular location.
In October, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) voted
to direct staff to work on
code language to put the
program in place. It was


directed that the proposal
be "dovetailed" with a draft
ordinance setting up regula-
tions for short-term rental
accommodations within res-
idential areas. The latter is
an approach that has been
the most recent attempt to
remedy noise and other dis-
turbances in neighborhoods
from homes rented out for
weddings and other large
gatherings.
The other ordinance to be
considered is one updating
the county's parking regula-
tions.
The agenda and materi-
als for county commission


meetings are usually avail-
able on the Walton County
Web site www.co.walton.
fl.us on the Thursday prior
to regular BCC meetings,
which take place on second
and fourth Tuesdays of the
month. The agenda and
materials can be pulled up
by clicking on "Commis-
sioners", then "Commission
Meetings", and then "Most
Recent Agenda."
The Feb. 8 BCC meeting
is scheduled to begin at 4
p.m. and take place at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.

One of the more frequent replies to questions about what snowbirds love most about the
Emerald Coast is hospitality. For visitors, food ranks high in Southern hospitality, espe-
cially food that is of a distinctive Southern cuisine. No wonder nearly half of all gifts of-
fered for distribution during the monthly general snowbird meetings are from restaurants,
giving winter visitors a chance to sample the haute cuisine of the Emerald Cgast's finest
eateries. Attendees at the next general meeting scheduled for Feb. 9 at Destin Life Center
Building of the Destin United Methodist Church located at 200 Beach Drive will enjoy ad-
ditional chances to reap valuable door prizes donated by restaurants, golf courses, cruises
and other businesses. The fun begins at 10 a.m. but wise 'birds arrive an hour early to meet
merchants, many of whom offer additional savings opportunities, and then recline in the
Life Center's luxurious seats to enjoy the popular Ooh La La's singular blend of voice and
instrument. Here's a chance to do good. Bring a can of food from the larder as a donation
for distribution to those for whom such kindness strengthens the spirit.
Registration for new and returning members will occur for the final time during the
current season on Monday, Feb. 7 at Faith Assembly Fellowship Hall located at 306 South
Geronimo Street in Miramar Beach between the hours of 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
Golfers are in for a great time on Feb. 24 when the Women's Charity Scramble and
the Men's President Cup take to the links concurrently at The Pines at Fort Walton Golf
Course for a good cause. The Shelter House reaps $5 from each golfer. The President's Cup,
a contest between USA and Canadian golfers, will see USA players attempting to regain
the Cup from the Canadians who carried it off last year. Call Debra Bailey at 650-5252 for
information about the Charity Scramble and Randy Frith 837-5324 for information about
the President's Cup. For other golfing opportunities check out www.waltoncountysnow-
birds.com/golf_news.htm or visit the golf committee leaders on Monday mornings at Faith
Assembly Fellowship Hall.
Another way to contribute to a good cause, the United Way in this case, while having

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


Ever since reading Alicia
Leonard's well thought out
treatise on gun ownership
last week, I've been think-
ing about it-which is of
course the intention of opin-
ion pieces. Over the years I
suppose I've had a knee jerk
reaction to the question of
gun ownership and decided
it definitely was not for me,
because I felt the person
most in danger from my hav-
ing ready access to a killing
machine would be me.
More than 20 years ago
I was having a terrible and
extremely painful medical
problem that was taking far
too long to be addressed. I
vividly remember one eve-
ning when I was just so ex-
hausted by constant pain
and despairing of a solution
that if I had had a gun, you
wouldn't have ever heard
of me. That scared me and
the fact is it could happen
again. Many older citizens
suffer crippling bouts of de-
pression.
Most people who own
guns do so out a sense of
self-protection and I get
that. I'm not sure I could
shoot anyone even if they
were trying to hurt me. One
must be certain of one's abil-


ity to wield a weapon before
having one. Maybe I could
be both Cagney and Lacey,
but then again the chances
are the bad guys would sim-
ply take the gun from my
trembling hands.
Perhaps the gun laws
we have on the books are
adequate for most citizens.
There will always be some
who can fall through the
cracks of any system, but I
do question why ordinary
citizens are allowed access
to assault weapons.
The average homeowner
is not going to have to fend
off a marauding horde of
Mongols marching up the
driveway and surrounding
his house. One or two adults
inside with assault weap-
ons will not be effective. Oh
sure, they might kill a few,
but the numbers are against
them and when was the last
time a house was stormed
by Mongols anyway?
Only military and law
enforcement need to have-
these guns and they are
the people highly trained to
use them, yet we have drug
kingpins and gang members
with equal access to these
weapons of mass destruc-
tion. We fight wars in other


LEAH STRATMANN:
countries based on the as-
sumption there are weapons:
of mass destruction, yet in
our country the weapons are:
available at Walmart.
It is difficult to stop a fire:
that is already out of con-:
trol, so I suspect there will
be no laws passed restrict-
ing people's access to assault:
weapons in the future. Once;
the fire rages to a certain:
point, it is a lost cause and:
the time for this country to.
follow the lead of other civi-'
lized nations is long past.:
We reap what we sow' and,
I'm afraid we have planted:
a bitter harvest.

CDLAB still pursuing special designation for the lakes


By LEAH STRATMANN
The first meeting of the
year for the Coastal Dune
Lakes Advisory Board
opened with Ken Sloan who
was attending his last meet-
ing as a board member say-
ing what a pleasure it had
been to serve on the board
and offering to help in any
way possible as a member of
the community.
Board member Richard
Bryan reported on progress
in seeking special designa-
tion status for the lakes. "I
made some phone calls and
did some research on the
Internet," Bryan reported.
"The Northwest Florida
Aquatic Preserve designa-
tion has about the same
amount of strength as the
Outstanding Florida Wa-


ters designation which is
body of water that touches
a state park. The Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA) also has a program
where they select two areas
every three years and throw
in some money and exper-
tise to find the best manage-
ment practices and restora-
tion. Waterfronts Florida
Partnerships Program is the
name and the county would
have to apply for consider-
ation," he said.
Bryan also found an inter-
national organization called
Ramsar whose goal is pres-
ervation and one that cold
provide funds and high vis-
ibility for the lakes.
Chairman Marsha An-
derson said the county has
not yet given special desig-


nation status to the coastal
dune lakes, but the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) is
continuing to move forward
on the issue.
"The goal is a stair step
program that begins with
the county, goes to the state
where the organization has
the support of State Rep.
Marti Coley, and then we
try for national resignation
and then international sta-
tus," Anderson said.
"It wouldn't take very
long for one of these lakes to
turn into a mud hole, so we
need to look at the long run
and realize that 20 years
down the road we would like
for these lakes to be there
and as healthy as they are
now," Bryan noted.


Sara Kalinoski reported
there were some Ameri-
Corps members at the Choc-
tawhatchee Basin Alliance
(CBA) and they are trying to
help with the development
of a tri-fold brochure that
summarizes the important
points about owning prop-
erty adjacent to the lake.
"I think a simple bro-
chure that Realtors can give
to new owners will be more
effective than directing
owners to a web site," Susan
Paladini commented.
"We need to move this
forward," Anderson said.
"We have been wrestling
with this for some kind
and in terms of getting the
education out to the public,
this is critical. Homeowners
are clear cutting because


they don't know any better
and want to improve their
view."
Since it may be some time
before a tri-fold brochure
might be a reality, it was
decided a simple fact sheet
could be distributed to title
companies and Realtors to
give to new owners of lake
front property.
Paladini reported the
Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR) has come
back from DCA and they
are questioning the defini-
tion of historical outfalls on
the lakes. "Outfalls migrate
from west to east and DCA
is questioning how to define
it. The management plan al-
ready defines historical out-
falls," Paladini noted.
Paladini also informed the


board she would not seek a
second term when her term
expires in February. Her
departure will leave two va-
cant positions on the board.
Two new members, Richard
Armstrong and George Bo-
wen were approved by the
BCC and were attending
the meeting as board mem-
bers for the first time.
Anderson noted that all
suggestions and advisories
from CDLAB that are to be
taken to the BCC must first
be run through public works
or the planning department
so the BCC can be provided
with the most comprehen-
sive information on each is-
sue in advance of meetings.

Emerald Coast


Association of Realtors


releases 2010 figures


After a topsy-turvy real
estate market in 2010, it is
easy to look back on the year
with a sense of understand-
ing about what happened
locally. According to statis-
tics released by the Emerald
Coast Association of Real-
tors (ECAR), the month of
December was up over last
year by nearly 15 percent,
while 2010 saw an overall
increase of 10 percent over
2009.
How was this possible in
the year of the Deepwater
Horizon oil spill which halt-
ed a thriving market in its
tracks? Realtors said it over
and over again during the
first quarter of 2010 that the
local real estate market was
on course for a comeback,
and they were not wrong.
In January, February, and
March, sales increased over
the previous year, generat-
ing excitement about the
coming year.
According to ECAR
President Jean Floyd, "The
overall year [2010] was up
compared to 2009. The first
quarter went well until we
experienced the oil spill. We
finished the year with strong
confidence in our area."
Most areas along the Em-
erald Coast ended 2010 on
a great note. Fort Walton
Beach and Destin were up
10 percent, Crestview expe-
rienced a 5 percent increase;
north Walton County had
a 1 percent increase; and
Niceville was only down 1
percent. Due in part to the
explosion in condo sales
during the latter part of
2010, south Walton County


jumped up to 15 percent
over 2009.
The ciche of location, lo-
cation, location holds true
for real estate. But in the
current real estate climate,
it is also about pricing, pric-
ing, pricing. For buyers who
are still waiting for the bot-
tom of the market,.it may be
too late in some areas.
Crestview, Navarre, and
Niceville all experienced
either a stabilization of the
median price for single-fam-
ily homes or even a slight
increase in the median price
when compared to 2009.
The 2010 median price for
townhomes increased in
Destin and Navarre. For
buyers still looking for a
deal, the median prices for
single family homes dropped
in DeFuniak Springs, Fort
Walton Beach, Freeport,
Niceville, and South Walton
County compared to 2009.
Some of the price changes
may be due to sellers becom-
ing more "realistic in their
price expectation," accord-
ing to Jim Gilliland, Realtor
with the Jim Gilliland Real
Estate Team. "This con-
tinues to be a price sensi-
tive market, and sellers are
aware of this."
"Properties in the
$500,000 to $700,000 range
were most popular with
our buyers [in Destin], but
these were properties that
had sold for over $1 mil-
lion previously," states John
Cook, Realtor with Coldwell
Banker United Realtors.
"Home values continued
to decline in 2010," says Jay
Boxberger, Realtor with Re/


Max Agency One, "but home
inventory declined as well.
Once our inventory drops to
a particular level, the values
will then begin to rise."
While prices may have
been a factor in an increase
in sales, other elements af-
fected the local real estate
market in 2010. The first-
time home buyer tax credit,
which expired in April, and
the influx of military from
the F35s and the 7th Spe-
cial Forces created an envi-
ronment for sales opportu-
nities. "While we saw a lot
of cash investors, we also
worked with first time home
buyers and military mem-
bers who took advantage
of the extended tax credit,"
said Gilliland.
Realtors are enthusiastic
about how 2010 ended and
where real estate is headed
for 2011. "[The year] 2010
was a banner year in Crest-
view real estate," states Box-
berger, a Crestview Realtor.
Cook declares, "Without
a doubt, 2010 was a great
time for buyers in Destin."
"[The year] 2010 was a
terrific year for Jim Gil-
liland Real Estate Team,"
enthuses Gilliland.
"The outlook for 2011 is
very promising for residen-
tial markets with the mili-
tary forces building up their
presence and needing a home
for their families," according
to Floyd, Niceville Realtor
with Keller Williams Realty
Emerald Coast. "Our mar-
ket is unique and through
any adjustments, our resi-
dents come back with resil-
ience."

cottages are to be renovated.
There are plans for one of
the cottages to be a Cowgirl
Kitchen. A home and mobile
home on the property are
to be removed. Landscap-
ing and 20-foot buffers on
the eastern, northern, and
western boundaries of the
property are also proposed.
Much of the public com-
ment on the proposal has
targeted plans to allow
vehicles to exit from the
north side of the property
onto narrow residential
streets. Headland Avenue
runs along the east side of
the restaurant property be-
tween CR-30A on the south
and Birmingham Street on
the north. Gardenia Street
runs along the west side,
curving west to run parallel
with CR-30A, changing its
name to East Grove Street
and then intersecting with
CR-395.
The developers are pro-
posing to route traffic exit-
ing the property onto Garde-
nia Street and East Grove.
As the result of public input
at a community meeting and
concern about potential traf-
fic impacts on Birmingham
Street, a gate across the
Birmingham Street right-
of-way is being proposed.
Instead, Gardenia Street
homeowner John Miller, who


represents approximately
90 other property owners
in the vicinity, has pro-
posed widening Headland
Avenue by approximately
four feet, using part of the
developer's property, and
making Birmingham Street
one-way running west, with
a do-not-enter sign rather
than a gate at the Head-
land Avenue-Birmingham
Street intersection. Miller
has advocated making the
expanded Headland Avenue
the only extrance/exit to the
property. In order to avoid
traffic impacts on Gardenia
Street and East Grove Av-
enue, he has urged against
the developers' plan to use
these 12-foot-wide neighbor-
hood roads as an exit route
from the property.
Miller has also advised
adapting the project plans
by maintaining the current
setback on the front of the
property and decreasing the
proposed buffer on the east
by 8 to 10 feet, in order to
allow for additional park-
ing spaces, arguing that 13
more spaces would be possi-
ble with use of angled park-
ing. Forty-four spaces are
currently proposed as part
of the development plans.
Other neighboring prop-
erty owners have spoken in
favor of a gate or bollards to


restrict access to Birming-
ham Street from the restau-
rant property.
South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) Fire Marshal
Sammy Sanchez has stated
that the project would not
meet SWFD approval if Gar-
denia Street were blocked
off from the property.
Local attorney Ken Gold-
berg and engineer David
Smith of Moore Bass Con-
sulting are serving as rep-
resentatives for the develop-
ers.
Representing a neighbor-
ing property owner, Talla-
hassee attorney David The-
riaque spoke in opposition
to the proposal on Jan. 11,
contending that, as an ex-
pansion of a nonconforming
commercial use in a Resi-
dential Preservation land
use area, it conflicts with
the Walton County Compre-
hensive Plan.
The county staff position
for the proposal has been
that it is in conformance
with the requirements of
the comprehensive plan and
land development code.
The continued public
hearing is to begin at 5 p.m.
or later in conjunction with
the Feb. 8 BCC meeting,
which begins at 4 p.m. and
is to take place at the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.









THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2011


You
know it'
the first of
the year
w h e n
Hollywood
breaks on
to the scene
and all you "
hear about
are the awards shows.
But with the big
enchilada just a few
weeks away, who .';
really makes the
decision of who is
nominated and how
did it all get started?

On Jan. 5, a select
group of actors and
actresses, were asked to
announce the nominees for
the upcoming 83rd Annual
Academy Awards. The
Oscars, set for Feb. 7, is
the pinnacle for all those in
Hollywood. If they are
awarded the honor, the
doors for the actor, director,
etc., are thrown open and
the possibilities, along with
the salary, have no limits.
With each envelope
being opened, usually at
5:30 a.m. the morning of
the announcements (PCT),
excitement throughout
Hollywood is intense. Each
director, Hollywood
production team, actor,
actress, producer, agent
and publicist will be
drinking their double
lattes, smoking their second
pack of cigarettes, and
popping their fourth
sedative, all before 9 a.m.,
all waiting in gut-
wrenching anticipation, for
the announcement.
It"s an announcement
that could change their
careers, their bank
accounts, their entire lives.
It is one morning that the
plastic surgeons, the hair
and make-up assistants,
and all the celebrity dog-
walkers, are not working
because all their clients are
glued to their Beverly Hills
mansion television sets.
But if you are like me
and make it to one or two
movies a year, have you
ever seen any of the movies
nominated for the
industry"s top award? Have
you ever seen a preview for
a movie and said, Oh my
gosh, we need to see that
flick because it looks like it
can be a definite Oscar
winner?
For the most part, unless
you are a film critic, or an
avid movie buff that lives to
do nothing but see a movie
a day, then you are in the
same boat as probably 99
percent of the country.
But there are those,
especially members of the
Academy of Motion Pictures
Arts & Sciences, whose job
is to see every movie, in
every language, and sit
through every movie, be it a
great entertaining flick, or
one that should go straight
to DVD. For those, the


g:-"Art


('-. O'r /c


selection process starts at
the beginning of each year,
and the winners are
announced the following
February.
In early V/' 7, during
dinner at the home of M-G-
M"s studio chief Louis B.
Mayer, Mayer and three of
his guests actor Conrad
Nagel, director Fred Niblo
and producer Fred Beetson
began talking about
creating an organized group
to benefit the entire film
industry. They planned
another dinner for the
following week, with
invitees from all the
creative branches of the
film industry.
On Jan. ~2/ V' 7, 36
people met for dinner at the
Ambassador Hotel in Los
Angeles to hear a proposal
to found the International
Academy of Motion Picture
Arts and Sciences
( International dropped
from the name soon after).
Attendees included many of
the biggest names in the
industry at the time.
The group supported the
concept and things came
together quickly. By mid-
March of that year, articles
of incorporation were
presented and the first
officers were elected, with
Douglas Fairbanks as
president.
On May W; V'/ 7, a week
after the state granted the
Academy a charter as a
non-profit organization, an
official organizational
banquet was held at the
Biltmore Hotel. Of the 300
guests, 30 joined the
Academy, paying $V/D0
each.
That night, the Academy
also awarded its first
honorary membership, to
Thomas Edison. Initially
five branches were
established: producers,
actors, directors, writers
and technicians.
Since then, the academy
has grown, moved its
headquarters to several
locations throughout
Hollywood, and has
extended its outreach,
research and other
programs. The board of
governors, the group that
actually compiles the votes
and makes the
nominations, is still the
common factor in who gets
what award. The board is
made up of representatives
from actors, directors,
producers, writers, stage
hands, public relations and
marketing execs,
cinematographers,
animators, and other
professionals in the movie
making industry.


F o r
| I Hollywood,
I" l S H h e
iltiS members
U and board of
governors
t i are the
people that
the rest of
Hollywood -
for lack of a
better word brown-noses!
They are the sole deciders
on who walks away with
the little gold statue, and
who is once again left
sitting in their assigned
seat, after, the winner in
their category has been
announced.
As the Oscars gear up to
once again surprise,
entertain, and for many of
us, present movies we have
never even heard about, it
will be a time to reflect
back on other Oscar nights
and those winners as well.
They are all vying for the
coveted golden statue.
Speaking of the statue,
since the initial awards
banquet on May V, V'' 9,
in the Hollywood Roosevelt
Hotel"s Blossom Room,
,70% statuettes have been
presented. Each January,
additional new golden
statuettes are cast, molded,
polished and buffed by R.S.
Owens & Company, the
Chicago-based awards
manufacturer retained by
the Academy since VI8' .
Oscar stands '/B31' inches
tall and weighs in 'at a
robust 8-/2 pounck 'Iefi 1
reel features five spokes,
signifying the five original
branches of the Academy:
actors, directors, producers,
technicians and writers.
Although the statuette
remains true to its original
design, the size of the base
varied until YV45, when the
current standard was
adopted.
So if you are a fan of the
big screen, or not, or if you
never really cared about
watching four hours of
actresses in expensive
dresses, actors thanking
everyone who ever had a
role in their career up on
national television, three
and a half hours of the four-
hour broadcast, taken up by
dancing and music, you
have to respect the history
of the award. It is an
industry that, though many
times blamed for the
downfall of modern society,
has brought years of
entertainment to many
generations around the
world.

Despite it being just
another day that Hollywood
has a reason to dress up,
the Oscars event has a way
of teaching us history, bring
back memories of the
golden age of theater, and
most of all, reminds us that
even the toughest actors
like John Wayne and Al
Pacino, still have a tear in
their eye when they are
handed that little gold
figurine.

FAMILY FEATURES

bash for a crowd, taking the party outside takes enter-
taining to a whole new level. If you're planning an
outdoor get-together, don't spend all your time in
the kitchen. These quick and easy tips will help
you spend more time with guests and ensure your gathering is an
effortless success.
Preparation is key. Prepare any appetizers you're serving the
night before and keep in the fridge. This will allow you to focus
on any last minute arrangements on the day of your party.
Think outside the box. If you're worried that you may not have
enough serving dishes for your get-together, look for cups and
glasses that may double as a dip bowl or unique container for
fruits or vegetables.
: Embrace the idea of "family style" dining. Serve appetizers on
large platters or set a buffet where everyone can serve them-
selves. This way, guests can take what they want and eat at their
own pace.
Make sure you have music. Loading up your iPod with fun songs,
both new and old, will provide a fun atmosphere for your guests.
Candles are always a quick and easy way to add ambiance and
class to any space. Keep several on hand to grab when the sun
goes down, but the party is still going strong.
Serve a delicious iced coffee cocktail. These cool drinks provide
guests with a sweet treat that no one will be able to resist. Plus,
they're so easy to make you'll have plenty of time to tend to
all of your other host duties. Just double brew your coffee in
the morning and stick in the fridge until you're ready to mix
and serve.
Try these easy, indulgent recipes below to host a party all of your
friends will be talking about.

1 cup fresh strawberries,

Tips for making the best iced coffee cocktail


m The type of roast used to make your iced coffee is
more important than you may think. Using a medium
roasted coffee bean will produce the best flavor for
your iced coffee cocktail. The result is a blend that
offers balance, sweetness and a mild acidity.


* Another easy way to ensure your iced coffee never gets
watered down is to freeze coffee ahead of time in an
ice cube tray. Use these instead of ice to ensure your
iced coffee cocktail is perfection.

In honor of Black History
Month, the Mattie Kelly Arts
Center at Northwest Flori-
da State College is pleased
to announce the addition of
a nationally touring histori-
cal drama Buffalo Soldier:
Sergeant George Jordan
1847-1904 Medal of Honor
to appear on Tuesday, Feb.
15 at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30
p.m. in the center's
mainstage theater in
Niceville. The 1:30
p.m. matinee perfor-
mance only is free of
charge for students
as well as the general
public. Tickets for the
evening performance
are $10 each for
adults or students.
School groups should
contact house man-
ager Delores Merrill
or Jeanette Shires at
729-6065 or 729-6004
for information or
group seating.
Noted British ac-
tor Cedric Liqueur
will present his one-
man theatrical pro-
duction depicting
the life and bravery
of African-Ameri-
can Buffalo Soldier
George Jordan who
was a Buffalo Soldier
in the United States
Army and a recipient
of America's high-
est military decoration-
the Congressional Medal of
Honor-and a Certificate of
Merit for his actions in the
Indian Wars of the western
United States (1866-1897).
Eighteen black troopers re-
ceived the Medal of Honor
for bravery during this pe-
riod. Buffalos are a sacred
and revered animal to Na-
tive Americans and legend
states that during the In-
dian Wars the term Buf-
falo Soldiers was thought
to express the respect Na-
tive Americans held for the
brave African-American sol-
diers.
Approximately 20 percent
of the U.S. Cavalry troop-
ers were African- Ameri-


cans. They fought over 177
engagements against the
Apache, Comanche, Ute,
Kiowa, Shoshone, Chey-
enne, Bannock, Kickapoo,
Sioux and Blackfoot. Jordan
was born in rural William-
son County in central Ten-
nessee. His parents were
slaves. On Dec. 25, 1866,
at age 19, he enlisted in the


38th Infantry and in 1870
he was transferred to the
9th Cavalry's K Troop, his
home for twenty-six years.
By the time of his retire-
ment in 1896 at Fort Robin-
son, Nebraska, Jordan had
served ten years as first ser-
geant. His later years were
spent in Crawford, Nebras-
ka where he was a success-
ful landowner.
Diagnosed with chronic
kidney disease in 1904 Jor-
dan was denied admission
to the Fort Robinson hospi-
tal and "died for the want of
proper attention" on Oct. 25,
1904. Sergeant Jordan was
buried with full military
honors at Fort Robinson,
Nebraska, Oct. 29, 1904. His


permanent gravesite is Fort
McPherson National Cem-
etery, Maxwell, Nebraska.
Cedric Liqueur has been
a professional theater stage
actor, playwright and direc-
tor since 1997, having pre-
sented one-man solo perfor-
mances of world literature
at schools, colleges, universi-
ties and many other venues
in the United States,
Canada and Europe.
A former member
of the Royal Shake-
i'-l speare Co:, Liqueur
completed university
studies in classical
S history and literature
Sat King's College in
London and film stud-
f ies at San Francisco
'. State University.
f. "You never really
know what you are
going to do, and then
someone else sees it
in you," said Cedric
Liqueur. A gifted ac-
tor with a Master's
degree in microbiolo-
gy, Liqueur is familiar
with the power others
have to inspire. Li-
queur caught the act-
ing bug years ago at a
party in England.
"This...guy told me
I should be an ac-
tor," he said, recalling
the night that would
change his life forever.
As luck would have it, that
guy happened to be Patrick
Stewart of "Star Trek" fame.
As a result of his chance
encounter with the actor,
Liqueur scored an audition
with the Royal Shakespeare
Company in Stratford-upon-
Avon. "That's where it all
began," he said of the oppor-
tunity that has found him
traveling the world as an
actor.

acrylic paint and mixed me-
dia such as found objects,
papers, gels and paints to
produce pieces that range
from surreal and whimsi-
cal to composite and som-
ber. Jones describes her
work as being "all over the
color wheel," and acknowl-


edges that her work varies
with her moods.
For Jones, the reason for
making art is to stretch her
imagination. "I like to push
the envelope when I can,
and I love the process of cre-
ating," she says of the work
she's been doing since she
was a teenager.
"I am most creative when
I am free of worry," says
Jones. "I go out alone with
my music, and get inspired
by the surrounding beauty.
It is so easy to get in the
zone when all of my materi-
als are at my finger tips."
Painting from her little
studio on Eastern Lake,
she credits travel, fam-
ily, friends, teachers, music,
museums, literature, na-


ture and religion for help-
ing her find inspiration. An
exhibition of Peggy Jones'
work will be on display at
the Coastal Branch Library
through Feb. 28 and can
also be seen on her website
peggyjonespaintings.com.

Each month, this unique
partnership between The
South Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC)
and Friends of Coastal
Branch Library brings new,
distinct exhibits to the pub-
lic through displays' at the
Coastal Branch Library. For
