slated
A dedication ceremony
will be held on Saturday,
Feb. 19 at 10 a.m. at the
corner of Baldwin Avenue
and 7th Street in DeFuniak
Springs. This will commem-
orate the completion of the
renovation of a DeFuniak
Springs landmark, the First
National Bank clock.
The tower clock was
placed in service by the First
National Bank of DeFuniak
Springs in 1924. Many bank
clocks were built by the O.B.
McClintock Company of
Minneapolis, Minn. in the
early 20th century and were
a common feature in many
towns across the coun-
try. The clock in DeFuniak
Springs is significant in that
it is a tower clock rather
than a wall-mounted one;
and more importantly, it
continues to operate with
the original mechanism and
parts. Many restorations of
these clocks in other towns
have replaced the original
works with modern elec-
tronic timepieces.

Funiak Springs clock was

City Marshal
Weeks running
for re-election

DeFuniak Springs City
Marshal Mark Weeks has
announced he is running for
reelection and has pre-filed
to be on the April 12 ballot.
"Serving my hometown
as city marshal and lead-
ing a more responsive and
improved police department
is an honor, as well as a
challenge," said Weeks.
"Over the next four years,
voters can trust me to meet
the challenge and continue
to deliver an increasingly
higher level of public safety
and professional service."
In 2009, city voters elect-
ed Weeks to fill the remain-
ing term of Mike Adkinson
Jr., who resigned to run for
Walton County Sheriff. Be-
fore then, Weeks served as
Assistant City Marshal with
Adkinson for three years
and was named supervisor
of the department by the
City Council following Ad-
kinson's departure.
Weeks has 17 years of

pay tribute to


fallen officer


Story and photos by
BRUCE COLLIER
Col. Greg Malloy was
killed in the course of a
manhunt last week for mur-
der suspect Wade Williams.
Malloy, an officer with Hol-
mes County Correctional
Institute's K-9 unit, died of
injuries sustained during
an exchange of gunfire with
Williams last Wednesday.
Another Department of Cor-
rections officer, Arthur Teal,
was also struck by a bullet
and is recovering from his
injury.
Williams was a suspect
in the Jan. 26 killing of his
parents. He was last seen
driving a truck that had
belonged to his father, a ve-
hicle that was found burned
and abandoned in the woods
in the Choctawhatchee
Wilderness Management
Area on Jan. 27. Investiga-
tors also found remains of
a campsite near the truck.
A local hunter, Thomas


Crews, was assisting in the
search when he made con-
tact with Williams, who he
saw laying out laundry near
a campfire. Williams was
alerted to Crews' presence
and an exchange of shots
took place before Williams
fled. Crews, who was nicked
by one of the rounds fired at
him, called 911 and a team
of deputies and tracking
dogs responded. Malloy and
Teal were part of that team.
The lawmen tracked Wil-
liams for an hour, and Wil-
liams reportedly doubled
back on his tracks and am-
bushed his trackers near
an area called Bear Pen.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is inves-
tigating what happened at
that point. There was ap-
parently another exchange
of shots, and Williams and
Malloy were hit.- Williams
was killed, and the injured

Demand increases on food pantry,

S' By LEAH STRATMANN
The needs of the rural
poor continue to increase as
seasonal work disappears
and the after effects of a tep-
id summer season unable to
provide the usual number of
people with jobs has a domi-
no effect on need.

See WEEKS 2-A All of the services of the


Rural Relief Fund are get-
ting some help and attention
from a variety of sources.
The Okaloosa Walton Home-
less Continuum of Care/Op-
portunity, Inc. is once again
conducting a point-in-time
count to try and get an accu-
rate count of the numbers of
homeless in Walton County.
According to federal guide-
lines, homelessness does not
just mean those without a
physical roof, but also those
live in substandard housing
that may lack heat or run-
ning water.
Thedefinitionofhomeless-
ness is further being refined
by passage of the Homeless
Emergency Assistance and
Rapid Transition to Hous-
ing Act (HEARTH), which
reauthorizes the homeless
assistance programs that
are administered by the U.
S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development
(HUD). HEARTH provides
greater decision making at


the local level, more closely
aligns the HUD definition
of homelessness with other
federal agency definitions
and expands resources for
emergency shelter and sup-
portive services, provides a
framework for greater home-
less prevention activity, and
allows communities the flex-
ibility to implement a range
of housing solutions.
Last year's point-in-time
count resulted in a grant
of $725,000 being given to
Okaloosa and Walton coun-
ties from the Homeless Pre-
vention/ Rapid Re-housing
Program. Lenore Wilson,
director of Opportunity, Inc.
said the grant stipulated
that exactly 19.6 percent
of the grant or $142,000 be
spent in Walton County and
the grant extends through
the end of June 2011.
Wilson said, "So what has

Cory Godwin new


chairman of Boys & Girls


Club of the Emerald Coast


Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Emerald Coast (BGCEC)
announced Feb. 1 that its
board of directors has unan-
imously voted Cory Godwin
to serve as the organization's
chief volunteer officer and
board chairman. BGCEC
board unanimously selected
Godwin based on his track
record of volunteer service,
as well as his strong execu-
tive and personal qualities.
"He is an inspiration to
his peers and a guiding light
to those he serves. I am
looking forward to assisting
him in serving the youth of
the Emerald Coast," said
Bertram Little, fellow board
member and Chairman
"Elect.
Godwin, raised in De-
Funiak Springs, is a fifth
generation Walton County
resident and is staunchly
committed to investing in
youth. He wants to preserve
the values of the community
he grew up in and impart
those values to today's youth.
He started with BGCEC
when the DeFuniak Springs
Teen Center opened in 2008
and has been instrumental
in leading BCGEC since. In
addition to his leadership
for the organization, he also


WEEKS

one, four and seven.
Under the leadership of
Weeks, our city police de-
partment has undergone a
number of changes in policy
and procedure aimed at re-
sponsiv6ness, adopting pro-
fessional standards and in-
creasing its level of service
to the community.
"DeFuniak Springs now
has more officers oni the
streets than ever before
and they are more skilled
and experienced than in the
past," said Weeks.
In addition to increasing
the number of experienced
officers, patrols and security
checks, Weeks led the effort
to implement the depart-
ment's 24-hour customer
service/dispatch center, cre-
ate a standardized policy
and procedure manual and
get the most from taxpayer
dollars by successfully seek-
ing grants and donated
equipment valued at more
than $500,000.
Weeks is leading the first
ever fitness program for
DeFuniak Springs police
officers and firefighters, ob-
tained a community service
unit and a mobile command
unit at no charge to local


volunteers mentoring teens,
and spends time at the club
with the staff and mem-
bers.
As a former assistant
prison warden with 17-
plus years with the Florida
Department of Correc-
tions, what drew Godwin
to BGCEC is, "it bridges
the gap between school and
family and does so much
to enhance education and
development healthy life
skills, leadership skills, and
overall citizenship. It all
starts with a caring staff
that is engaged in the mis-
sion of the club, and most
importantly is a fun place
for children and teens."
Godwin's goals as chair-
man and chief volunteer of-
ficer include:
Fulfilling the commit-
ment to south Walton Coun-
ty by building the South
Walton Unit this year.
Recruiting a full.comple-
ment of passionate and ef-
fective trustees, corporate
board, county advisory
board and unit affinity circle
members.
Promoting relentlessly
the incredible programs and
success of-the Boys & Girls
Club of the Emerald Coast


in order to increase fund-
ing to levels consistent with
unit operational expenses.
Expanding the program
in his hometown of De-
Funiak Springs to include a
youth facility (ages 6-12).
"Ultimately, the real goal
is to impact thousands of
children and their families
in a positive way, while in-
troducing new volunteers
to my passion for this great
organization," said Godwin
about his chairmanship of
BGCEC.
Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Emerald Coast serves more
than 1,800 youth ages 5-18
in Escambia, Okaloosa, and
Walton counties. The mis-
sion of BGCEC is to inspire
and empower all young
people and their families in
partnership with our com-
munity to achieve their po-
tential to be great. They do
this through proven
programming that concen-
trates on academics, healthy
living, and good character.

taxpayers, established an
elderly well-check program
to help keep seniors safe
who are living alone and
organized and meets with a
Citizen's Advisory Commit-
tee. Recently, Weeks led a
successful effort to rid the
community from harmful
marijuana- and cocaine sub-
stitutes by personally ap-
pealing to local merchants
to voluntarily stop selling
the products.
During his next term in'
office, Weeks said one of his
goals is to lead the depart-
ment through the formal law
enforcement accreditation
process. Weeks said accredi-
tation assures a community
that its police department
is maintaining the highest
standards of professional-
ism. He is certified by the
Florida Law Enforcement
Accreditation Commission
in managing the accredita-
tion process.
Before coming to the De-
Funiak Springs Police De-
partment, Weeks served on
the Florida Highway Patrol
and worked for six years as
a Traffic Homicide Investi-
gator. He is a 1987 gradu-
ate of Walton Senior High


School and 1991 graduate
of Okaloosa Walton Com-
munity College. He earned
a Bachelor's Degree in His-
tory (minor in Criminology)
from Florida State Univer-
sity in 1993 and Master's
Degree in Criminal Justice
from University of Central
Florida in 2001. In addition,
Weeks has completed 2,000
hours of specialized law en-
forcement training.
Weeks is a member of De-
Funiak Springs First Bap-
tist Church, First Christian
Academy Parent Teacher
Fellowship, Kiwanis Club,
NRA and served as an assis-
tant coach for Walton Coun-
ty Recreational Soccer.


The Walton Tax Savings
Coalition needs to secure
volunteers to serve as tax
preparers, quality assur-
ance personnel and greet-
ers. The coalition is working
with JobsPlus and North-
west Florida State College
to establish the Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance
(VITA). The IRS will provide
free training, no experience
necessary.
By helping families claim
tax credits that can result
in tax refunds, VITA sites
boost the income of working
families. In 2009, the aver-
age earned income tax cred-
it (EITC) amount in Florida
was $2,260. VITA sites help
bring money to the local
community. A recent sur-
vey showed a 15-percent
increase in the amount of
EITC brought back to local
communities by VITA pro-
grams across the nation.
Other studies show that
for every dollar returned to
working families through
other tax credits, $1.50 in
economic activity is generat-
ed (Source: National Com-


munity Tax Coalition). VITA
sites promote financial edu-
cation and encourage saving
and asset-building.
The tax preparer will be
responsible for tax prepara-
tion and will be required to
attend a 20-hour training
program provided by the
IRS.
The quality assurance
person will be responsible
for verifying W-2 or wage
information prior to the cus-
tomer's meeting with the
preparer. There is an eight-
hour training program for
this position.
The greeter is responsible
for keeping the customers
signed in and assisting with
copies being made as neces-
sary.
The program runs from
mid-January to mid-April
and will provide free tax
preparation to low income
families in Walton County.
The program also needs do-
nations of reams of paper to
print copies of returns.

Marcus Keene completes basic training


Navy Seaman Marcus B.
Keene, son of Sabrina L. Ow-
ens of Niceville, Fla., Mark
B. Keene, of Santa Rosa
Beach, Fla., and grandson
of Hilda and Harold Car-
penter of DeFuniak Springs,
Fla., recently completed U.S
Navy basic training at Re-
cruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week
program, Keene completed
a variety of training that
included classroom study
and practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid, fire-
fighting, water safety and
survival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An emphasis
was also placed on physical
fitness.


The capstone event of
boot camp is "Battle Sta-
tions." This exercise gives
recruits the skills and confi-
dence they need to succeed
in the fleet. "Battle Station"
is designed to galvanize the
basic warrior attributes of
sacrifice, dedication, team-
work and endurance in each
recruit through the practical
applications of basic Navy
skills and the core values of
honor, courage and commit-
ment. Its distinctly "Navy"
flavor was designed to take
into account what it means
to be a sailor.
Keene is a 2004 graduate
of South Walton High School
and a 2009 graduate of Uni-
versity of West Florida in


Pensacola with a Bachelor
of Arts degree.

ation. Volunteer labor from
a number of city and county
craftsmen, and the generous
contribution of James and
Michael Gramlich of Pensa-
cola in restoring the master
clock at no cost made this
renovation possible. Ongo-
ing maintenance and care of
the clock will be done by the
city of DeFuniak Springs
in an inter-local agreement
with the Walton County
Board of Commissioners.
A bronze plaque mark-
ing this partnership and the
renovation will be unveiled
at the ceremony. The public
is cordially invited to attend
this celebration.

Acting




Patriotic

By BRUCE COLLIER

I never thought I'd see this, but I have read two mini-
blogs this morning on the Feb. 8 House vote to extend to
extend certain provisions of the Patriot Act which is set
to expire Feb. 28 until Dec. 8. The bill is expected to pass
.the House, but the Senate has its own versions of the bill
:(three of 'em, actually), one of which would permanently
:re-authorize the entire Act.
What struck me is that one of the blogs is from a group
called Republican Liberty Caucus, and is headed "It's Time
:to Stop Sacrificing Our Rights for a False Sense of Secu-
rity." The notice urges citizens to call Congress and tell the
:representatives to refuse to renew the three provisions up
for extension.
The second blog is from wait for it the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU). The blog urges citizens "to tell
:Congress that you are watching, that you don't buy their
fear-mongering or their scare tactics, and that you want
xeal Patriot Act reform."
SYes, this is the same ACLU, membership in which is a
guaranteed kiss-of-death for political candidates in many
parts of the nation. So how did guys that supposedly stay
awake nights dreaming up new ways to keep God out of
*he classrooms come to be on the same side of the fence as
a group of limited- government Republicans from Texas? It
gets stranger.
-U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of Na-
tional Intelligence James Clapper have joined to ask legis-
lators to renew those three provisions. Sen. Dianne Fein-
stein (D-Calif.) who will never be mistaken for Sarah Palin,
'reportedly has suggested that there isn't enough time this
year for Congress to consider reforming the Act. Which
:means, I guess, just let it hang out in the reception room
and read magazines until the doctors can see it? No, Fein-
stein has sponsored one of three Senate bills dealing with
the Act. Hers would extend the three provisions until the
end of 2013.
SThat must be some Act, that Patriot Act.
The three provisions up for renewal in the House would:
(1) authorize the FBI to continue using roving wiretaps on
surveillance targets (Sec. 206); (2) allow government ac-
cess to "any tangible items," such as library records, in the
course of surveillance (Sec. 215); and (3) allow surveillance
bf targets not connected to identified terrorist groups (Sec.
6001, the "lone wolf' provision).
Granted, the House may vote to renew the provisions,
but the Senate has its own ways, and calendar. They are
about to be in recess, and won't be back until Feb. 14. Both
chambers are in recess the'following week (Feb. 21) for
President's Day, and won't be back until Feb. 28, at which
time the provisions would have expired. So, if the Senate
does nothing next week, the House bill expires, unless both
:chambers call a "pro forma" session during recess. Pro for-
ma, As translated by Congress, is Latin for "don't hold your
breath."
What's going to happen? Well, whatever it is, it has to
happen by Feb. 17 in order for whatever the Senate passes
to go back to the House, which would have all of one day to
consider it. OK, enough already.
SThe motive behind all this, according to a House source
cited in the The Washington Post, is that by extending the
three provisions to Dec. 8, the House will have time to hold
hearings on "actual reauthorization" of the provisions and
to educate the newly-elected legislators on its specifics.
Thus, it's all a lot of maneuvering in an effort to circle
the party wagons and initiate the freshmen pledges, all the
while placating the White House. Meantime, the Stupid
Old Electorate's collective mind might just wander off to
something more interesting. The Oscars, for example. Any-
thing but their Fourth Amendment rights.
Until then, what's in your wallet? No, really, hand it
over, buddy. I'm from the government and I want a look at
that library card. Better be a recent photo on it. Read any
seditious books lately? Never mind, we already know.

Editor,
I wanted to thank a few exceptional people, throughout
Walton County, who helped my son when he broke his arm
in school on Jan. 12. First on the list are Mr. Hope and
the wonderful staff at Walton Middle School. Their fast
response in contacting me and keeping my son calm and
comfortable are commendable. I am also touched by the
personal calls from Mr. Hope during his hospital stay.
.We appreciate Walton EMS team and their professional-
ism, experience and compassion. It was reassuring to have
paramedic Ben Martin monitoring and providing our son
exceptional care during transportation; and EMT James
Meadows for driving us safely to the hospital. "Thank you

Editor:
Walton County Farm Bureau wants to help consumers
make wise choices as they shop for foods for their families.
Food Check-Out Week is scheduled for Feb. 20-26.
Farm Bureau seeks to reach out to consumers with practi-
cal tips on how they stretch their food dollars and continue
enjoying a nutritious diet.
Food Check-Out Week also creates an opportunity to high-
light the safety, abundance and affordability of foods pro-
vided by our farmers and ranchers. The recent economic
recession has cut into the average household budget in
Florida and across the nation, affecting the money avail-
able for food purchases. But, according to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture, the cost of fresh fruits and vegetables
has remained stable compared to dessert and snack foods.
The agency's assessment included carrots, bananas, toma-
toes, broccoli, Red Delicious apples and iceberg lettuce as
sample items.
In 2009 the average household in the U.S. devoted less
than 10 percent of its disposable income to food purchases.


Households in more than 40 other countries spent more
than 20 percent. In 24 countries the figure was 30 percent
or more.
According to the USDA, domestic farmers and ranchers
receive 19 cents out of every dollar spent on food. Off-farm
costs absorb the rest of it. In 1980 the farm producer re-
ceived 31 cents out of every dollar. Recent spikes in retail
prices have been the result of higher energy costs to pro-
cess, haul and refrigerate food; wholesale prices have re-
mained stable.
As part of Food Check-Out Week, Walton County Farm
Bureau will be holding a food drive through Feb. 25. The
food collection will be given to Tri County Community
Council. We hope this contribution will help empower local
citizens to be able to have the nutritious meals that every-
one needs. We encourage all residents to help us out with
this endeavor.
Sincerely,
Walton County Farm Bureau staff

Century Link and Direct TV


Century Link advertised that combining three services
charges would be less.
1. Phone service
2. High Speed Internet
3. Direct TV
We changed from Dish TV to Direct TV charges of $63.99
Dish and $34.99 to Direct TV.
Charges from Direct TV was $63.99, Also we do not re-
ceive local channels 4, 7, 13 and they will not be available
until possible the summer of 2011.


We are stuck with a useless Direct TV program. We are
paying the same not less. We want this thing out of our
home. It is not what we agreed upon.
A business agreement is an honor that Century Link and
Direct TV is not doing.
I shall pursue this till they will be so tired of the name
and complaint they will have to do something. This is not
harassment at all it is a complaint that is for false adver-
tisement.
I want Direct TV and Dish TV back.

What is the Tea Party About?
Ninety-two percent believe President Obama is leading
the country to socialism.
Fifty-nine percent either believe or don't know if Presi-
dent Obama was born in another country.
Twenty-four percent believe it is sometimes justified to
take violent action against the government.
Sixty-six percent doubt the impact of global warming.
Sixty-four percent believe President Obama has increased


taxes. (He actually cut them for 95 percent of Americans.)
Sixty-six percent have a favorable view of shooter Sarah
Palin.
Fifty-nine percent like Glenn Beck.
Fifty-seven percent-have a favorable view of George W.
Bush.
P.S. "Things are a-changing"-thank goodness.

Editor:
I do not have a gun in my home. Statistics show homes
with guns are more likely to have family members wounded
or killed.
I do understand my neighbor or friend has the consti-
tutional right to own a rifle to hunt or a handgun for self-
defense if he so chooses.
I do not, however, feel there is a constitutional right to
have a Uzi, an AK-47 or a Glock with a 30-bullet clip. The
founding fathers, when writing the Second Amendment,
had no such weapons to deal with.


The tragedy inTucson shows us the result of the failure
to renew the assault weapon ban. A nut fired 30 bullets
in less that 15 seconds with a legally-purchased automatic
weapon. The result: 14 wounded, six dead.
Americans have the right to own guns, not the right to
"Second Amendment solutions' to every grievance, real or
imagined.

WCSB rescinds no-walk action

ton Beach) and Gerald (BGC DeFuniak Springs).

this money? Forty families
have received assistance for
homeless prevention, mean-
ing that they were in immi-
nent danger of homelessness
(three-day notice of eviction
is the norm), and needed
help catching up with back
rent and utility payments,
and a little help going for-
ward. Another $37,546.42
has gone in payments to
landlords and utility com-
panies on behalf of these
40 clients, and an addition-
al $18,751 has gone into
housing stabilization costs,
which can be anything from
legal services, credit repair,
case management, budget
classes, and assistance with
training and employment
programs.
"Another 47 families have
received rapid re-housing
assistance, which means
they were homeless when
they came to us. These
families needed help with
upfront costs-rent and


utility deposits, first month
rent, etc. To meet federal
guidelines they must have
some form of income show-
ing they can maintain hous-
ing, so generally we provide
a great deal of assistance
helping families find jobs.
Some $49,682.21 has gone
to landlords and utility com-
panies, with an additional
$17,105.19 going to housing
relocation and stabilization
services," Wilson said.
The services of the Ru-
ral Relief Fund continue to
expand. With the help of
students from Community
Collaborations, Inc. two
groups have come to Bruce
to do maintenance and oth-
er work to help the organi-
zation grow. "The students
painted the inside and out-
side decking, painted the
pantry shelves, painted the
ramp going into the council
house, cleaned out a couple
of sheds to make room for
the medical clinic that is


scheduled to open, sorted
and hung everything in the
thrift shop, tore down the
ceiling in the back of the
shop and reinforced the
joists. They also cleaned up
the yard all around the trib-
al area," Tucker said.
So far the thrift shop has
only been open once. "We
took all the warm clothes
and coats we could find
and offered it to anyone for
whatever they could pay.
We called it 'Emily's Corner'
because of a dog that was
homeless and helpless and
who barely averted death
by being taken in at Alaqua.
We saw the dog online and
went over the visit, with me
saying all the way we are
not going to get another dog,
but Emily is now our dog.
She is a symbol of hope, be-
cause without Alaqua she
would have had none. Now
the dog has a home and has
hope and we wanted to use
that as symbolic of what we

The Walton County
School Board rescinded ac-
tion taken at the Jan. 18
meeting in which members
unanimously voted not to al-
low students who elected to
take the performance based
exit option by passing grade
10 FCAT and the GED walk
at graduation ceremonies.
After reviewing policy,
the board determined stu-
dents utilizing the exit op-
tion will be allowed to walk
and participate in all gradu-
ation ceremonies, as under
this option students do not
drop out of school to earn a
GED, rather remain in class

mitted to walk.


are trying to do here at Ru-
ral Relief," Tucker said.
Another project moving
forward a bit is the emergen-
cy house slated to be built
on tribal land. Tucker said
a large donation was made
by a single individual that
will.allow the foundation to
be built. The donation came
about when Elaine Barrow,
pastor of the Bruce Method-
ist Church, filled in at Christ
the King Episcopal Church.
"It looks like the house
will be started this month
or next," Tucker said. "We
have a refrigerator and a
store, but we are waiting as
thing come in. We still need
a septic tank and a couple
of truckloads of dirt to level
out the land. We hope to get
the dirt from the county,
then the foundation can be
poured."
Donations to the Rural
Relief Fund may be made by
dropping off food at the trib-

In opening comments,
Kevin Chilcutt addressed
the board to commend the
students of Walton County

Assembly events the week
prior. Chilcutt praised the
students' maturity and
manners. Superintendent

draped over the roadway to
the school. The service was
held in the auditorium, and
a line of friends and other
mourners stretched from
the main hallway out onto
the parking area and to
the road. Row upon row of
uniformed officers could be
seen police, sheriffs depu-
ties, Department of Cor-
rections officers, K-9 unit
personnel, plainclothes of-
ficers, and an honor guard
formed of representatives of
various agencies and forces.
The guard members were in
full dress, with unit patches
and decorations, some even
bearing polished sabers.
The funeral service ran
from 2 3 p.m., and could
be viewed by monitor from
the WHS hall. Adkinson,
Bondi, Scott and Florida
Department of Corrections
Secretary Walt McNeil all
spoke, praising Malloy's
professional dedication and
sacrifice. Friends and col-
leagues also took their turn,
painting a picture of a hard-
working man who loved his
family. Toward the close of
the service, attendees inside
the building were asked to
move to the walls to allow
passage of the family and
casket from the auditorium
to a waiting vehicle.
Outside the WHS main
entrance, the honor guard
formed, up in two lines,
standing quietly awaiting
orders. After about 15 min-
utes of near-perfect silence
- in a crowd estimated to
have numbered in the thou-
sands a voice called for at-
tention. Every law officer
in attendance snapped to,
in absolute silence. The sa-
lute was held while Malloy's
casket was slowly borne
through the double line of
guards and placed in the
funeral vehicle. The crowd
dispersed, and Malloy's cas-
ket was taken to Darlington
Baptist Church for grave-
side service and interment.
Malloy is reportedly the
fifth Florida law enforce-
ment officer killed in line of
duty this year.


HONOR GUARD IN FULL DRESS lined up to attend the passage of Malloy's casket.


FAREWELL FROM COLLEAGUES and family, as Col. Greg Malloy's casket is taken for
transport to the cemetery.


THOUSANDS LINED UP AND WAITED to pay respects to slain officer.

Advocacy Center news


From JULIE HURST, CEO

Happy New Year to.all!
Somehow January slipped
by as well as our column for
that month. We are back
however,' with some excit-
ing news for the Center in
Walton County. You will
be hearing frequently from
us in this column about the
project and the help we will
need to make this a reality
for the child abuse in the
community.
First of all, thank you to
Sheriff Adkinson for agree-
ing to act as spokesper-
son for this endeavor. As
I mentioned in our Decem-
ber column we had hired a
mental health advocate to
work out of the sheriffs of-
fice. Her role is to engage
with victims in child abuse
cases and their families and
connect them to community
resources to include men-
tal health counseling. I am
also happy to report we just
received funding for hire a
part-time therapist to work
in Walton County. They will
begin their work on March
1. So six months ago we had
no staff for Walton County
as we started this venture
and today we have one and
one-half staff. When we
started the Center in Oka-
loosa County we started
with three staff members -
so for Walton County we are
halfway there.
The next opportunity is
locating temporary space
as we work toward a per-
manent home. We require
about a 1,000 square feet
or so, equipped with three
offices and a reception area
if possible so we can estab-
lish a child-friendly envi-
ronment where child abuse
victims can receive mental
health services and begin to
restore their often lost child-
hoods. Best case scenario we
would like to identify rental
space that could be donated
for a period of time until
we develop the permanent
home. Back in November
a very nice lady had called
me about some space across
from the courthouse and
unfortunately I misplaced
her number. I am hopeful
she will read the column
this month and reach out
again. The space at one time
I believe it was a dental of-
fice. If anyone is aware of
any properties or could help
the Center identify space,
please contact me.
The next step is sched-
uling the next focus group
meeting in March. If anyone
is interested in participat-
ing, please let me know. As I
have mentioned before this
will take an army to accom-
plish. We need soldiers who


are willing to join to help
with fundraising and com-
munity awareness, to vol-
unteer, to identify funding
sources and the list goes on
and on.
So on behalf of the chil-
dren we serve, I am asking
for your help. Asking you to
help make a difference in the


life of an abused child. With
all of us, we CAN make this a
reality sooner than later. I'll
be waiting for your call. You
can reach me at 833-9237,
ext. 223. And remember if
you know of or suspect child
abuse, please contact the
Florida Child Abuse Hotline
at 1-800-96-ABUSE.

pressed that day, Lake De-

Toastmasters Interna-
tional is an organization
that began humbly in 1924
at the YMCA in Santa Ana,
California. From that time,
Toastmasters Internation-
al has grown to become a
world leader in helping peo-
ple become more competent
and comfortable in front of
an audience. The nonprofit
organization now has more
than 260,000 members in
over 12,500 clubs in 113
countries, offering a proven
- and enjoyable way to prac-
tice and hone communica-
tion and leadership skills.
Most Toastmasters meet-
ings are composed of ap-
proximately 20 people who
meet weekly for an hour or
two. Participants practice
and learn skills by filling a
meeting role, ranging from
giving a prepared speech or


an impromptu one to serv-
ing as timer, evaluator or
grammarian.
There is no instructor;
instead, each speech and
meeting is critiqued by a
member in a positive man-
ner, focusing on what was
done right and what could
be improved.
Good communicators tend
to be good leaders. Some
well-known Toastmasters
alumni include: Peter Co-
ors of Coors Brewing Com-
pany; Debbi Fields, founder
of Mrs. Fields Cookies; Tom
Peters, management expert;
and author Linda Lingle,

DFS man arrested for battery of a law enforcement officer


i5


any arrest has the potential
for violence. The men and
women who wear the badge
should be commended for
their bravery."
Asher pushed a WCSO
deputy and resisted a state
probation officer in an at-
tempt to flee after being
served an arrest warrant for


violation of probation. Asher
struggled, causing the sus-
pect and law enforcement of-
ficers to fall to the floor. The
incident, which occurred at
the DeFuniak Springs Pro-


bation Office at 2338 U.S. 90
West, resulted in the WCSO
deputy being treated for a
fractured fibula.
Asher was charged with
one count of battery on a


law enforcement officer, a
third-degree felony; and one
count of resisting an officer,
a first-degree misdemeanor.
Asher was booked into the
Walton County Jail.

Door-to-door

solicitors arrested for

ordinance violation


The DeFuniak Springs
Police (DFSPD) arrested
three men on Feb. 3 for
violation of a municipal
ordinance prohibiting so-
licitation without a permit.
Officers responded to com-
plaints of three suspicious
persons going to door-to-door
and attempting to sell mer-
chandise. A reported group
of five persons were seen at
various places around De-
Funiak Springs, traveling
in a white cargo van. One of
them was stopped at South
1st Street and Bay Avenue,
and determined not to have
a permit to sell merchan-
dise.
An attempt was made to
locate a supervisor for the
group. Three of the subjects
were interviewed and none
had the required permit.
One, Roderick Jermaine


Rudisel, had an active war-
rant out of Georgia. Georgia
authorities refused to extra-
dite Rudisel.
A record check indicated
that all three subjects had
"extensive" criminal histo-
ries in several states. All
were taken into custody
and transported to Walton
County Jail, where they
were booked for violation of
City Ordinance 17-1 (iden-
tification card and permit
required). Those arrested
were Kwane A. Dimery of
Denver, Colo., Timothy R.
Bunch of Brooklyn Park,
Minn., and Roderick J. Ru-
disel of Miami, Fla.
Anyone who made pur-
chases of items from these
individuals on Feb. 3 using
a personal check or credit
card is asked to contact the
DFSPD at 892-8513.

GULF COAST MILITARYACADEMY OLD GRADS gathered Feb. 5 for a Last Reunion. (Photo by Ben Grafton, Class
of 1947)


The Last Reunion:

Gulf Coast

Military Academy


By BEN GRAFTON,
Class of 1947
In 1912 Gulf Coast Mili-
tary Academy was founded
by Col. James Hardy in
Gulfport, Mississippi. The
school grew and became an
institution with students
from throughout the United
States enrolled in elemen-
tary through high school
grades. The high school be-
came a strong member of
the Reserve Officers Train-
ing Corps (ROTC) and a
preparatory school for the
nation's military academies.
It sent forth young men to
Annapolis and West Point
where some 17 of them be-
came flag officers including
four star Admiral Kinnaird
McKee. Many other students
and graduates went on to
become successful business-
men, educators, doctors,
lawyers and senior military
officers. These included an
Associated Press photog-
rapher (William Colton), a
United States Senator and
federal judge (Frank El-
lis), an instrumental figure
in establishment of alcohol
treatment programs in Lou-


isiana (Aubrey Young) and
a star major league baseball
player (Spud Davis).
The high school was closed
in 1951 and its property was
sold to the Air Force which
used it as an adjunct to Kee-
sler Air Force Base in Biloxi,
Miss. And so, the long line of
service was broken.
But, even though the
school was closed, its
students and graduates
stayed in close contact
with each other. Then, in
1971, through the efforts of
George Bullard of Gulfport
and others, the Gulf Coast
Military Academy Alumni
Association was estab-
lished. Former students and
graduates from across the
decades joined the associa-
tion and attended reunion
meetings two times a year
at various locations along
the Gulf Coast from Missis-
sippi to Northwest Florida.
Old friends were reunited
and new friendships among
the members grew over the
years.
The ages of the former
cadets now range from their
late 70s into their 90s. The

Academy's crest. (Photo by Ben Grafton, Class of 1947)


passage of time has over-
come abilities of these el-
derly comrades to plan and
manage the association
and its meetings, and so,
the weekend of Feb. 5, in
Orange Beach, Ala., amid
renewed friendships, with
reminiscences and tears,
the Last Reunion was held.


Forgotten Angels
By M. VREELAND
There's no question that kittens are cute, cuddly and
completely captivating, so when it comes to adoptions, it's
no wonder they're high on the list of favorites. But there is
much to be said for sharing your life with one of our more
mature cats. These
Forgotten Angels
are loving creatures
with delightful per-
sonalities who con-
tinue to wait pa-
tiently for a special
someone and a for-
ever home. While
it's fun watching
the antics of kittens
as they play with
anything they can
get their paws on,
it's also very sooth-
ing to have the calm
presence of an adult BONES
cat snuggled up beside you or cuddled on your lap. Two of
our favorite Forgotten Angels at Alaqua Animal Refuge are
Wonder Woman and Bones.
An exceptionally beautiful tuxedo cat, Wonder Woman
has riveting green
eyes and snow
white whiskers. A
lady through and
through, even her
table manners are
exemplary. Rather
than sticking her
nose straight into
the dish, she uses
a delicate paw to
transfer food to
mouth. She is affec-
tionate, docile, and
simply a joy to be
around.
Another sweet-
heart of a pat is "
Bones. Handsome
and elegant in his WONDER WOMAN
impeccable white coat, he is quiet, gentle and gets along
well with his feline roommates. He is very appreciative of
any love and attention he receives, and there's nothing he
enjoys more than a cozy snuggle on a comfy lap. Wonder
Woman and Bones are just two of our Forgotten Angels. Ei-
ther of them would make an excellent companion for some-
one who prefers the more sedate side of life. Anyone who
offers these Angels a forever home will be blessed each day
with an abundance of unconditiori4 ove.
"Northwest Florida's Premier~ Animal Sanctuary and
Adoption Center, Alaqua Animal Refuge is a non-profit,
no-kill shelter, located at 914 Whitefield Road, Freeport.
They welcome everyone to visit all the adoptable animals
at their beautiful ten-acre sanctuary any Tuesday through
Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call (850)

Story and photos by
BEN GRAFTON
On Monday, Jan. 31 and
Tuesday, Feb. 1 the E. O.
Wilson Biophilia Center
at Nokuse Plantation, just
east of Freeport, was host
for visits by two groups of
Florida state representa-
tives and educators. On
Monday Rep. Matt Gaetz
and Rep. Brad Drake vis-
ited the center and on
Tuesday Rep. Marti Coley,
Washington County Super-
intendent of Schools Dr.
Sandra Cook and Executive
Director Patrick McDaniel
of the Panhandle Area Ed-
ucational Consortium were
there.
Each group of represen-


tatives and educators was
able to observe the educa-
tional offerings of the cen-
ter in action as students
from Bay County schools
were attending their previ-
ously scheduled classes to
get hands-on experience in
Florida's ecological and en-
vironmental issues.
The students are bused
to the center where they are
divided into their normal
class groups. First, they
are welcomed by Christina
Scally, the center's direc-
tor, and view a video on
the Exxon Valdez oil spill
cleanup. Following this the
class groups rotate through
class sessions including: A
tour through the Exhibit


Center which features
displays of Florida fauna
and flora, including an ac-
tive bee hive and audible
calls and sounds of the for-
est; a hands-on laboratory
class about the problems
of cleaning up oil spills in
a marine environment; an
outdoor class about mi-
cro-ecosystems featuring
a hands-on lesson about
collecting samples from a
pond with a dip net to find
what creatures are pres-
ent; and an introduction
to Florida turtles with the
chance to touch and hold
the animals. Everyone goes
on a trail walk where they
are introduced to tree and
plant identification.


OUT OF THE GOPHER HOLE came Rep. Brad Drake, one of a group of elected officials
and education leaders to tour the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center last week.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2011
vvrvAVV.VV\ i.,


By JEFFREYPOWELL
The DeFuniak Springs
Garden Club recently wel-
comed local beekeeper
and honey producer Jim
Dietrich to their regular
monthly meeting. Dietrich
spoke to the organization on
Wednesday, Feb. 2, afterr a
light lunch was served..
Dietrich is a second gen-
eration beekeeper and has
recently made this hobby
his full time occupation.
During his presentation he
discussed the life cycle of
the honey bee which var-
ies greatly depending on
the type of bee. A queen for
example can-live over four
years and is the life blood of
a brood. During the peak of
the season a queen can lay
up to 1,500 eggs per day.
Worker bees, which are all
female, live only 30 to 45
days due.to the demanding
workload. Other bees are
strictly tasked with guard-
ing the hive. The worker
bees will travel as far as
four miles from the hive to
retrieve the necessary in-
.gredients to produce bees-
wax and honey.
In addition to producing
honey, worker bees also pro-


vide a vital service to wild
and domesticated crops by
pollinating plant-life. In one
case Dietrich discussed, a
blueberry farmer's crop was
increased by 40 percent af-
ter bringing a group of bees
in to pollinate the berries.
According to Dietrich, a full
third of the food we eat re-
quires pollination.
In the past few years bee-
keeping has become increas-
ingly difficult due to the in-
flux of parasitic insects.
"In my father's time it
was easier to keep bees,"
Dietrich said. "Now we have
to contend with Varroa
mites, African hive beetles,
trecia mites and funguses."
Dietrich also provides the
occasional bee hive retrieval.
He recently brought home a
hive of bees from the Walton
County Court House.
Dietrich keeps his bee
hives on a trailer so they
can easily be moved. For
two to three weeks a year
he moves his buzzing load to
the Choctawhatchee River
to make Tupelo Honey. The
much coveted Tupelo plant
only grows on three rivers
in the southeast. The other
two rivers are the Chipola


and Apalachicola.
After his presentation,
several members of the gar-
den club purchased a bottle
or two of honey. His product
is pure raw honey and is not
pasteurized or processed in
any manner.
"It is very nice to have Mr.
Dietrich here today," said
DFS Garden Club Member-
ship Chair Marilyn Louw-
erens. "He discussed impor-
tant issues and it is nice to
see how nature works."
"This is great to talk
to the garden club, I hope
the honey they take home
makes them smile," Dietrich
said. "I enjoyed being here
today."
Dietrich can be reached
by calling (850) 259-3447.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
My best friend and I have
been through a lot togeth-
er. We grew up together,
spent our summer vacations
glued-at- the-hip and will
graduate together, soon. My
problem is a guy we both
know is trying to come be-
tween us and I'm not sure
how to handle it.
At first, we both were
kinda crushing on him, but
nothing serious. He must
have picked up on it, because
he started talking to us, but
not when we're together.
He's been telling me weird
stuff about how my friend
doesn't want us together,
and how she's jealous of me.
I think he's saying the same
things to her about me. The
guy is really working the
whole "divide and conquer"
route.
I'm not buying it, but I'm
afraid my friend is, hook,


line and sinker. She's al-
ways had a confidence prob-
lem because of some stuff
in her family from the past,
but she usually doesn't let it
bother her. This guy seems
to hone in on that and use
it to make her unsure of our
friendship.
I don't know how to get
rid of this guy and save my
friendship. Any advice Aun-
tie Em?
Confused in Crestview

Dear Confused,
You seem to have en-
countered a species I like to
call the bottom feeder. They
travel along, picking up
scraps they can use and feed
off of, and in the end, they
truly derive their mojo from
breaking up good things. It
seems to make them feel
powerful, the ability to ma-
nipulate others and divide


them.
As usual, I'm going to be
very honest with you: The
outcome with these types
of events is not always posi-
tive if one of the women has
issues with self-esteem be-
cause it is often the crack in
the armor that rats like this
guy look for when targeting
women. And I agree that he
is probably telling her the
same things he's saying to
you, so here's the best that
you can do.
Tell her the truth. Tell her
what he says to you about
her and tell her your sus-
picions. Tell her you don't
want him and she is your
best friend. Be her friend
and be prepared to lose her
for the short-term, but plan
to win and keep your friend-
ship in the final battle. Last,
but not least, prepare to pick
up the pieces if she doesn't
believe you and pulls away
to give him a spin. She will
be back, damaged, but edu-
cated and she will need your
friendship more than ever.
I will add this warning

that I'd love to give you!


I love NPR. I love The
New Yorker. I love my
friend Jeffs Facebook posts
which could serve as a tick-
ertape for the day's most
ironic sociopolitical news. I
love news, which is why I'm
a daily visitor to USAToday
website. And some days,
God decides amongst all the
news of unrest in Egypt and
natural disasters in Aus-
tralia and the president's
opinion on the Superbowl,
we news-nerds need a little
jewel to makes us smile at
the state of the world, even
if it's a pitying smile of dis-
belief.
Such jewel today is news
that the U.S. Catholic
Church has blessed an iP-
hone application for confes-
sion. That's right, this $1.99
app for Roman Catholics
guides believers through
sacrament and provides a
"personalized examination
of conscience." This exami-
nation is based on age, sex,
and vocation. Even better,
since the app offers pass-
word-protected multiple
user accounts, an entire
family can confess via iP-
hone. After all, one-on-one
time in a booth with the or-
dained is tough to schedule
with an agenda of texting
and Facebooking -now sin-
ners can squeeze in a little
iConfession at the same time
and kill two birds with one
stone! (Er, wait, will that
have to be confessed? I've
got my iPhone right here).
Exciting additional fea-
tures include the ability to
upload sins not listed in the
standard examination, for
those overachievers who go
above and beyond adultery,
idolatry, blasphemy, covet-
ing, and lying (I suspect kill-
ing those birds will have to
be added).
The application intend-


ed to "engage Catholics in
their faith" was developed
with the assistance of Rev.
Thomas Weinandy of the
United States Conference of
Catholic Bishops and Rev.
Dan Scheidt; an Indiana
pastor. No word yet from
the Vatican, but I think this
will be a huge hit with the
Cardinals and Pope, really
free up priests' time and al-
low them to focus more on
the children's choir.
Of course, they know any-
one cavalier enough in their
religious devotion to confess
to a phone won't read the
fine print which [should be
as] follows,
"Absolution not included.
Must see a priest to be ab-
solved of sin should user be-


lieve said priest is a channel
between God and sinners,
possessing the ability to for-
give. Intended use is only to
absolve guilt the next time
one actually attends con-
fession, so the confession
can start on the right foot,
i.e. 'Father, forgive me for I
have not sinned in the past
38 minutes since my last
iConfession, which I tweeted
about.' This application's in-
tended use is to provide an
outlet for confession which
can be utilized while not
detracting from the more
exciting activities of Xbox,
texting, Facebook, Twitter,
MySpace, fornication, roller
derby, World of Warcraft,
dove hunting, blogging, and
generally all other activities
more enjoyable than confes-
sion. The Roman Catholic
Church is not liable for any
sins which are not absolved
via iConfession, and users
acknowledge iConfession
and its founders and af-
filiates cannot be sued on or
after judgment dhy. Should


Peter deny entry into the
pearly gates, the iConfes-
sion app cannot be held
accountable, nor will a re-
fund of the $1.99 app fee be
awarded. It is unclear and
shall remain so for what
purposes the $1.99 app fee
is used within the Roman
Catholic Church, excepting
the portion paid to Apple for
providing believers the ser-
vice of iConfession. Should
believers find themselves
dissatisfied with the iCon-
fession app, resulting in
rage, swearing, or death
threats, it is recommended
users return to iConfession
and walk through any of
the seven acts of contrition.
In the name of all that is
digital and preposterous, we
bless you."
With promises like that, I
can't wait for iNirvana-to-
tal bliss without the bother
of pesky introspection and
meditating. Let's hope the
Buddha blesses it!

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2011


If There Be Dragons by
Kay Hooper was a book
without a plot with a bit of
farfetched fantasy thrown
in. Hooper is a very prolific
writer and this is my first
exposure to her work. Based
on this, I'm not eager to
check out any of her other
work.
This book may well qual-
ify as a romance, although
not of the Harlequin variety.
The story centers on Brooke
Kennedy, a psychic holed
and running a lodge in Mon-
tana, living a life of almost
total isolation for much of


the year. When Cody Nash is
asked by their mutual friend
Pepper to go see her and see
if he can help her, he goes,
even though it is against his
better judgment.
What he finds is a sus-
picious and withdrawn
woman who trusts no one
and who appears to have
countless numbers of fears,
here referred to as dragons.
Cody falls instantly in love
and promises Brooke he will
slay her dragons. A timely
blizzard forces the two to re-
main in the lodge for weeks
as Cody begins to try and


PAGE 5-B
chisel Brooke out of her
walled-off existence.
If I had been reading this
book, I would have stopped.
There is no mystery, no
twists, some absurd busi-
ness with a wolf, and of
course a super happy end-
ing. As a book to listen to, it
was tolerable, but not nearly
as good as many many oth-.
ers.
All titles here available
through the Walton County
Library System.

My reading and book lis-
tening has been diverse of
late and not altogether sat-
isfactory but not a complete
waste of time either.
There has been a resur-
gence of interest in True
Grit by Charles Portis since
there is a new movie version
of the novel first published
in 1968. It is interesting to
note that in the intervening
40 plus years the book has
never been out of print.
Most people are familiar
with the story from the John
Wayne movie, but the book
is far richer in details and
is written in an interesting
manner. The narrator is
Mattie Ross, a middle-aged
woman relating events from
her youth in 1875 in the Ar-
kansas territory' when she
hires U.S. Marshal Rooster
Cogburn to.help her track
down the murderer of her
father. In the process, they
also pick up a Texas Ranger
named LeBoeuf who is look-
ing for the same outlaw,
although LeBoeufs outlaw
has a different name.
The way this book is writ-
ten is interesting. The au-
thor relies almost solely on
prose and it sounds as if it
is being toldby a 14-year-
old girl, complete with the
kinds of punctuation popu-
lar with novice writers. Lots
of exclamation points and
while there is certainly a lot


of action, it is a unique, but
highly readable, style.
SOnce the mission is un-
derway there is a lot of ac-
tion. Cogburn's character is
a dissolute rambler with few
reservations about shooting
first and asking questions
later. Mattie has deter-
mined that he has the grit
to get the job done and over
his protests signs herself
up for the trek into Indian
Territory where the group
has heard the murderer has
joined forces with a band
of gnarly outlaws, many of
whom Cogburn has been
gunning for.
This book zips right along
and was a pleasure to read
even if the reader is not a
fan of western novels. The
Walton County Library has
the book as well as a video-
cassette of the John Wayne
movie.
Elisabeth Hyde's novel,
The Abortionist's Daughter
is billed as a mystery, but for
me the mystery was solved
fairly early on. Nonetheless,
the books offers some inter-
esting characters, vividly
drawn, and lots of discus-
sion on the pros and cons of
pregnancy termination.
Diane Duprey runs a cen-
ter for reproductive choice in
a small Colorado town. She
is widely known throughout
the United States as an ad-
vocate for choice, and even
exercises her own choice
when she chooses to deliver


a baby she knows will be
afflicted with Down's Syn-
drome. She is not so much
pro-abortion as she.is zeal-
ous in providing a choice to
all who may need it.
Over the years she has
gone head to head with
pro-life groups, has a direct
phone line to the authori-
ties and a number of ac-
tive restraining orders. Her
husband of 20 years is the
town's prosecuting attorney
and the two have a complex
and somewhat volatile mar-
riage.
When Dr. Duprey is
found bludgeoned to death
in her swimming pool, the
neighbors recall hearing a
loud argument between Di-
ane and her husband that
very afternoon. It was her
husband who found her af-
ter leaving the house hours
before. As he refuses to
tell investigators where he
was, his name goes to the
top of the suspect list, caus-
ing some problems for his
daughter Megan. Aware
of the stressors in her par-
ent's marriage and her own
troubled relationship with
her mother, Megan begins
to question everything.
Lurking around the story
is a fairly large cast of sup-
porting characters. This is a
pretty good storyand offers
some interesting insight
into the issue of choice, but
the mystery part is not very
well developed.

Paxton Girls Win District Title


By PATRICK CASEY
The Paxton Lady Bobcats
never get tired of winning
district championships as
attested by their seventh
consecutive basketball title
as they defeated Bethlehem
on Saturday night 53-34 to
earn a home game in the
opening round of the Class
A playoffs.
Paxton (24-2) will host
Aucilla Christian at 7 p.m.
on Thursday, Feb. 10, and
could advance to the second


round of the playoffs for the
seventh consecutive year
with a win.
It was not easy for the
Bobcats to get to that point
after Central gave Paxton a
battle in the semi-final. The
Jaguars were tied with the
Bobcats at 17-all at halftime
when the Bobcats tightened
up their defense to allow
only six made baskets from
the field the rest of the way
to pull away for a 46-32
win.


Rebecca Ferreira, a ju-
nior guard, scored 11 of her
14 points in the second half
while Alyssa Dupree scored
nine of her 13 points after
the break to help the Bob-
cats pull away for their 21st
consecutive win over the
Santa Rosa County team.
The Bobcats traveled
back to Bethlehem on Sat-
urday night to face a Wild-
cats squad that had lost to
Paxton both times in the
regular season.


The game was a bruis-
ing contest for most of the
night but the Bobcats pres-
sure defense was more than
the Wildcats could handle
as Paxton built a 15-5 lead
after one quarter and held a
27-12 lead at the break with
deft shooting from outside
and solid rebounding on the
interior. Bethlehem strug-
gled to make shots from the
floor for most of the night
and never made more than
four shots from the floor


in any of the four quarters
as Paxton's bench kept the
lead at 20 points for most of
the second half in earning a
53-34 victory.

Alyssa Dupree led the
way with 14 points while
Rebecca Ferreira scored 13
points in helping the Bob-
cats defeat Bethlehem for
the 14th consecutive game.
"We had a bit of a slow
start against Central,"
Coach Steve Williams ac-
knowledged. "Those semi-fi-
nals are always intense with
someone's season coming to
an end. We start the playoffs
at our place and will take it
one game at a time.


Should Paxton defeat
Aucilla Christian, they will
likely travel to face playoff
nemesis Tallahassee FAMU
High on Tuesday, Feb. 15.
Game Notes: Paxton has
won 20+ games in seven
of their last eight seasons.
Paxton has won 13 straight
games. Steve Williams is
in his second year as head
coach and holds a 43-12 re-
cord at Paxton. Paxton is
77-7 at home over the last
seven seasons and unde-
feated at home this season.
The Lady Bobcats are 32-14
in the state playoffs in 18
trips with four state cham-
pionships (1986, 1994, 1996,
1997).

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2011 PAGE 9-B


Lady Pirates beat Baker 46-19 for seventh



consecutive district championship


By REID TUCKER
Winning district titles is
practically a non-issue for
the Ponce de Leon Lady Pi-
rates.
Top-seeded Ponce de Leon
(24-3) demonstrated its
time-tested ability to turn in


winning performances as it
blasted through Baker (11-
9) with a 46-19 victory. The
Saturday, Feb. 5, win marks
the Lady Pirates' seventh
straight District 1-2A cham-
pionship.
That isn't to say the game


was without hitches: shoot-
ing was initially a struggle
for both sides as PDL alone
scored on just one field goal
for around 20 attempts from
the floor. This meant the
game's opening salvos were
fired primarily from behind


the charity stripe until Hil-
lary Harper broke the si-
lence with a 2-pointer with
just less than a minute left
in the quarter. Despite re-
peated attempts before and
after Harper's score, PDL
held the lead by just 5-2 go-
ing into the second quarter.
Ponce de Leon coach
Tim Alford chalked it up to
nerves. The previous night
Harper and team mate Jas-
mine Flock lead the Pirates
with 13 and 14 points, re-
spectively, against Jay on
the way to a 60-32 victory
over the Royals. PDL lead
Jay 40-15 at halftime, a far
cry from the 21-15 halftime
score against the Gators,
who themselves convincing-
ly beat Freeport the night
before.
"We were just shooting
too quick," he said. "The mo-
ment got the girls a little
excited and we just didn't
execute. They were trying
hard but maybe it was too
hard."
Alford needn't have wor-
ried though, as the Lady
Pirates' touch 'warmed up
considerably in the second
quarter and Harper and
Shalea Yates put PDL up
17-6 with 5:28 to go. The
Lady Pirates held Baker to
nine points for most of the

rest of the half but a pair
of well-placed 2s from Dan-
nielle Mayhair brought the
Gators back within five
points. Another 2er from
Bethany Chestnut enabled
the Gators to close the half
down 21-15 to the Pirates.
While Baker seemed to be
in a good position to make
a comeback in the third,
PDL's defense kept the Ga-
tors scoreless in the period.
The Pirate offense, led by
Yates and Flock, added 15
points in the same interval,
all but deciding the game in
favor of Ponce de Leon:
Though Mayhair would
break the Lady Pirates'
streak with a 2-pointer at
the beginning of the fourth
quarter, the Gators would
score just once more in the
game. PDL, meanwhile, con-
tinued to find the net with
regularity if not impunity
and ran the score up 49-19
by the end of the game.
Nine of the 14 players
on the Pirates bench scored
in the showdown with the
Lady Gators, but none got
out of single digits. Ponce de
Leon's offense was headed
by Harper (now with 1,121
career points), Flock and
Yates, who each accounted
for nine points of PDL's total.
Baker's leading scorers were


Chestnut and Mayhair, who
turned in six points apiece.
Alford, in this his 16th
season at Ponce de Leon,
said he was proud of an-
other big win, in spite of a
somewhat lackluster shoot-
ing performance. He said
Baker's apparent insistence
on letting the Lady Pirates
find their range after the
first quarter proved to be
the home team's undoing.
"[Baker] played
extremely hard but they
backed up and let us shoot,"
Alford said. "I'm just glad it
worked out. Any time you
can win, we're happy and
we're excited. We're glad
regardless. However [the
game] came out, we'll' take
it."
Ponce de Leon is set to
host District 2-2A runner-up
Holmes County on Thursday
in a regional quarterfinal
contest while Baker will go
on the road to face Graceville
on the same night.
The Lady Pirates have
not been defeated in nine
home games this season
and, historically speaking,
have fallen in only eight
of the past 75 home games
over the last six seasons.
Furthermore, PDL is 31-16
in 18 state playoff appear-
ances.


By PATRICK CASEY
It took all 32 minutes of
the contest to decide the
Paxton-Walton boys basket-
ball game on Jan. 31 as the
Bobcats used a huge advan-
tage at the free throw line
to pull out a 77-74 victory
in one of the better Walton
County rivalry games of the
year.
The Bobcats finished the
regular season with a per-
fect 10-0 mark at home but
had to fight off a pesky Wal-
ton team that nearly came
away with the win due to
deft three-point shooting on
the night. Walton canned 14
shots from behind the arc in
the contest but missed sev-
eral shots when they needed
them most over the last four
minutes of the game as Pax-
ton rallied to take the win
and improve to 21-3 on the
year.
The up-tempo contest
saw the Bobcats hold a 21-
19 lead after one quarter of
play as both squads shot the
ball well from the floor. Pax-
ton opened up a 41-33 lead
at halftime as the Bobcats
canned 13-of-27 shots from
the field in the first 16 min-
utes of play.


Walton took advantage
of Paxton guard Shaq Jack-
son's absence in the third
quarter due to foul trouble
to rally for a 57-53 lead as
Deshun Tucker scored 10 of
his 15 points in that quarter
with Edward Howard nail-
ing a pair of three-pointers
to give the visitors the lead.
Paxton's Marcus Bradley
kept the Bobcats close with
seven of his 12 points in the
period as he flashed into the
lane and stuck a key pair of
shots to keep the home team
close until Jackson's return.
The game continued at
a quick pace in the fourth
quarter with Paxton using
the free throw line to win
the game by hitting 11-of-17
shots from the charity stripe.
Jackson's return provided a
spark as he scored 12 of his
22 points in the final quar-
ter while hitting on 8-of-10
free throws on the night.
Josh McLaney was in-
dispensable on the night as
he scored 18 points, most-
ly in the post in the first
half, while nailing 8-for-8
shots at the free throw line.
Chad Zessin also put up 17
points for the Bobcats as the
Braves had no answer for

off Walton 77-74 in a January 31 contest. (Photo by Patrick

his rebounding and ability
to score in the lane.

Walton junior guard An-
gus Anderson led the Braves
with 16 points as his outside
shooting range continues to
grow while Deshun Tucker,
Eddie Pomante and Edward
Howard each scored 15
points on the night.
Paxton had 22 turnovers,
which almost cost them a
perfect slate at home, while
the Braves totaled 17. Wal-
ton hit only 7-of-19 shots in
the fourth quarter as a cool
streak allowed the Bobcats
to rally for the wi n.
The Bobcats closed out
the regular season with
their third victory over
Freeport of the season in an
81-50 road win that pushed
their record to 22-3 on the
year.

Paxton will host the Dis-
trict 1, Class A boys basket-
ball tournament this week
and will play in a semi-final
contest at 7:30 p.m. on Fri-
day night with a playoff
berth on the line.
Game Notes: Paxton is
54-6 at home the last five
seasons. Jeff Bradley is
in his 13th season as the
Bobcats' 'head coach 'and is
believed to have a 261-123
record at the school. Senior
Shaq Jackson has 1,876 ca-
reer points for the Bobcats.
Paxton holds a 9-6 lead in
the series since the 1988-
89 season though the two
teams went nearly 10 years
without playing in the regu-
lar season from 1996 until
2005. The 41-3 advantage in
free throw attempts marks
the largest discrepancy (38)
this sportswriter has wit-
nessed in a game that went
down to the final posses-
sion. Walton is not a team
that goes to the foul line of-
ten, but the Braves did not
have a free throw attempt in
the entire second half while
Paxton shot 28.

Walton Boys Win Pair of Games


By PATRICK CASEY
Despite dropping a 77-74
contest to Paxton last week,
the Walton Braves were able
to salvage wins against their
two other county rivals as
they picked up victories over
Freeport and South Walton
to close out the regular sea-
son with a 10-14 record.
The Braves raced out to
a 22-14 lead over Freeport
as turnovers plagued the
Bulldogs throughput the
contest. The visiting squad
would commit 34 on the
night as their ball-handling
hampered their efforts at a
come-from-behind victory.
Walton took a 45-37 lead
at halftime as the fast-paced
contest saw the two teams
combine for 79 shots from
the floor in the first half of
play.
The Braves long-range
shooting continued to be
extremely accurate as the
Braves canned 14 shots from
behind the arc with junior
Angus Anderson supplying
the hot hand with 20 points.
Eddie Pomante scored 17
points while Deshun Tucker
added 12 as the Braves took
a 70-61 lead into the final
quarter of play.
The Braves had 12 of
their 13 players dressed for
the varsity contest score in
the game. Walton hit 36-of-
88 shots on the night while
Freeport hit 33-of-61 shots
but could not overcome the
turnovers and poor free
throw shooting.
Michael Graziani led the
Bulldogs with 19 points
while freshman Gabe Moore
put up 14 points and Clayton
Jones and Caleb Piasecki
had 12 apiece.
Graziani would reach
the 1,000-point mark in the
Bulldogs next game with
Paxton as he scored seven
points in that game to hit
the mark dead-on despite
his team losing the game


81-50.
Walton defeated South
Walton on Friday afternoon
with a 68-58 victory that
saw Deshun Tucker lead
the way with 13 points. An-
gus Anderson contributed
12 points as the Braves held
a 35-25 lead at halftime.
Walton used 26 turnovers
by the Seahawks to help
build a lead in the contest as
they hit 27-of-74 shots from
the floor on the night. South
Walton hit 19-of-53 shots


but made only 15-of-31 from
the free throw line.
Tanner Degafferelly
scored 16 points while
Chadd Bryant had 13 points
and Shane Seeger 10.
Team Notes: Walton has
won five in a row against
Freeport and leads the se-
ries 18-10 since 1988-89.:
The Braves are 17-1 versus
South Walton vith the lone
loss coming in 2009 in a dis,'
trict tournament contest at
Northview.

Braves, Seahawks Eliminated


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
and South Walton Lady Se-
ahawks each needed a semi-
final win in their respective
girls.basketball district tour-
naments to qualify for the
state playoffs. Unfortunate-
ly, neither got their wish as
cold shooting from the floor
and free throw line sent
Walton home with a 39-29
loss while South Walton got
upended by a blazing second
half performance by Holmes
County as they rallied from
a 31-11 first half deficit to
pull out a 68-60 victory.
Walton, which entered
the District 1, Class 3A
tournament as the #2-seed
to Panama City Bay, once
again struggled against
nemesis Pensacola Catho-
lic as the Crusaders used a
14-5 scoring advantage in
the second quarter to pull
away for a 23-13 halftime
lead. The Braves made only
one shot from the floor in
that quarter and hit only
8-of-25 shots from the free
throw line in shooting their
vay out of an opportunity to
qualify for the district cham-
pionship game.


Sophomore Taliah Moore
was the only Braves player
in double figures with 11
points as the Braves season
came to an end with a 14-9
record on Panama City Ar-
nold's floor. The Crusaders
won the tournament for the
second consecutive year as
they knocked off the Mar-
lins on Saturday night.
South Walton had dis-
patched Sneads in the open-
ing round of the District 2,
Class 2A tournament in
Grand Ridge on Feb. 1 by a
67-25 count as senior Sam
Snider put up 18 points
in beating the Pirates for
the third time this season.
The win set up a semi-final
showdown between the Sea-
hawks and Holmes County
for a playoff berth after the
two teams had split the reg-
ular season series.
South Walton started
out on fire as they forced
12 turnovers in the first
half while shooting 13-of-27
from the floor in building
a 33-21 halftime lead. The
Bluedevils responded in
the second half as they hit
9-of-13 shots from the floor
to start the quarter as their


27-15 scoring edge tied the
game at 48-all entering the
final eight minutes of play.
Turnovers and poor free
throw shooting did in the
Seahawks in the final quar-
ter as Holmes County con-
tinued to make shots while
the Seahawks could muster
only 3-of-12 at the charity
stripe while coming up short
on all but one three-point
attempt over the last eight


minutes of competition.
Senior Alex Lovell fin-
ished the game with 19
points while Snider contrib-
uted 17 points in the loss.
Junior Mackenzie Watson
added 14 points as the Sea-
hawks finished the year at
17-9.
Coach Kevin Craig said
after the game, "I was afraid
we would have trouble play-
ing at their pace. We con-

trolled the game in the first
half and should have had
a bigger lead at halftime.
Turnovers and free throws

many shots in the second
half and are a pretty ath-
letic bunch."
The Seahawks were not
helped by the loss of sopho-
more guard Morgan Ken-
nedy due to a leg injury she
suffered the last week of the
regular season. Kennedy
was fourth on the team in
scoring entering the tour-
ney and missed the last two
games of the season.
The loss ended South
Walton's season with a 17-9
mark.
Tourney Notes: The
South Walton girls have
now missed qualifying for
the playoffs the last five
seasons. Sam Snider fin-
ished her career with 983
total points scored and was
second in the Area 5 in scor-
ing, averaging 17 points per
game. Coach Kevin Craig
completed.his 7th season at
the school and holds a record
of 126-65. The loss to Holm-
es County marked the final
contests for seniors Meghan


Ryan, Sam Snider, Blakney
Barrett, Heather Anderson
and Alex Lovell.
Marla Harrell and Brad
West coached the game with
Jerry Hester serving out a
suspension after his ejec-
tion from the Jan. 27 con-
test with Freeport. Taliah
Moore has scored 696 points
in her first two seasons with
the Braves. Lynn Paulk and
Ashlynn Encardes were
the only two seniors on
the squad. Walton is 4-30
in girls basketball against
Pensacola Catholic since the
1996-97 season.

Both schools will play in
different basketball districts
for the 2011-12 season. Wal-
ton will be a member of Dis-
trict 1 of Class 4A with only
Marianna and Pensacola
Catholic as foes. South Wal-
ton will face a lot of travel
as they have been placed in
District 4 of Class A as the
largest member of the Rural
Class. The Seahawks 'will
play West Gadsden, Port St.
Joe, Liberty County, Frank-
lin County, Blountstown
and Panama City Bozeman
as district foes next year.

Baker brushes past Freeport in District



1-2A girls' semifinal game


By REID TUCKER
Despite being tied 14-all
at halftime, the superior
late-game shooting of the
Baker Lady Gators brought
a close to Freeport's District
1-2A tournament run.
Baker, the host team of
the tournament, held the
Lady Bulldogs (10-12) to
single-digit scores through
all four quarters of the Fri-
day, Feb. 4, contest. The
Lady Gators" 39-25 win ad-
vanced them to the district
finals against top-seeded
Ponce de Leon the following
night.
Freeport coach Mike
Myrick said a night of slow
shooting was all it would
take to spell disaster for the
team, and, unfortunately
for the Lady Bulldogs, that
night came in the semifinal
game against Baker.
"I said all week if we
couldn't get the game into
the forties then we'd have a
hard time winning," Myrick
said. "For some reason we
couldn't the ball wouldn't go


in the hoop. We moved the
ball well on offense and I
think we did everything we
needed to do except put it in
the hole."
Bethany Chestnut and
Morgan Jones led Baker
with 13 points and 12 points,
respectively. That combi-
nation on offense proved
enough to hold off Free-
port's attempts from the
outside, headed up 12 points
from Dannica Mosher (who
missed clearing 1,000 points
in her career by just 14
points). Other than Mosher,
only Jessica Moulton and
Shadia Mitry scored points
for Freeport, and neither
of them crossed into double
digits.
Things started off well
enough for the Bulldogs, as
Mosher scored five points on
a 3-pointer and a 2 from just
inside the top of the key.
Moulton also added two to
push Freeport into an early
lead, but both teams were
clearly having difficulty
finding their depth. To that


effect, Chestnut scored just
a pair of 2s in the period,
which closed 7-4 in favor of
the 'Dogs.
The first minutes of Q2
were scoreless, but Moulton
broke the silence with 6:12
to go and was joined by
Mosher half a minute later
to extend Freeport's lead to
11-6. Thanks to pressure
from Jones, who scored six
points in the period, Baker
closed to within two points
with less than a minute un-
til the half. Chestnut then


drained a deep 2 at the
buzzer to tie the game at 14-
14.
Freeport got back into the
lead by three at the outset
of the second half, but Bak-
er made it a one-point game
at 17-16 just a minute and
a half into the third. Gator
sophomore Haley Wagner
stole the ball on the check
and ran back down the court
to score a layup, her lone
field goal of the evening, to
put Baker in the lead for the
first time in the game. The


Gators never looked back
from there on out, pouring
on 2s from almost the whole
roster and a 3 from Chest-
nut, the combined effect of
which was a 30-21 lead.
The fourth quarter was
the worst yet for Freeport,
as the Lady Bulldogs man-
aged only four points, all
by way of free throws after
Moulton was benched due
to fouls. The Gators also
scored mostly from behind
the stripe but their bottom
line was supplemented by
a pair of 2s from Jones and
team mate Dannielle May-
hair. All told, Baker out-
scored Freeport 27-16 in the
second half, a deficit from
which the Lady Dogs could
not hope to recover before
time ran out.
,. '-


Myrick said cold shooting
from the outside was what
ultimately did in Freeport in
spite of attempts at mixing
up the plays to favor more
work in the paint. Ultimate-
ly, the loss came down to an
inability to get far enough
ahead and stay there, he
said.
"They didn't give us many
second chances," Myrick
said. "We're not very big so
if the ball didn't go in on the
first shot we weren't getting
a second chance to do any-
thing with it.'We're pretty
good when we shoot the
ball well but when we don't
shoot the ball well we're not
very good at all. We had
some good looks, some good
opportunities but we didn't
get it done in the end."

Rocky Bayou grounds Seahawks'


championship run


By REID TUCKER
.... --The fina:meeting
between the boys' soccer
teams of South Walton and
Rocky Bayou Christian and
the outcome of the Region
1-2A quarterfinals all came
down to one climactic, rain-
soaked moment of truth.
After 80 scoreless
minutes of regulation play
and one overtime period,
Rocky Bayou sophomore
Yante Beliveau went head-
to-head near the start of
OT2 with South Walton's
keeper, Jacob Scheler, who
rushed out to meet him. Be-
liveau warded off Scheler's
attempt at a block, dribbled
around him and put a shot
on the far post. One of the
Seahawk defenders reached
the ball before it found the
back of the net but failed to
knock it off-course.
The shot simultane-
ously granted Beliveau a
game-winner an earned the
Knights a trip to play Port


St. Joe in the regional semi-
final. That one goal also set-
tled the three-game series
between South Walton (14-
5-3) and Rocky Bayou (8-8)
at 2-1 in favor of the lat-
ter. Both previous match-
ups had been equally as
close and thus South Wal-
ton head coach Jimmy John-
son did not lay blame for the
loss on Thursday, Feb. 3,
on the dismal weather and
plummeting temperatures.
"I don't think the weather
had anything to do with it,"
Johnson said. "[Rocky Bay-
ou] had the same weather
we did. I think we played
as well as we could have ex-
cept we just couldn't seem
to finish. It seemed like we
couldn't make a shot."
South Walton's lack of
goals wasn't due to lack of
trying, as the Seahawks
gave Rocky's defenders con-
stant trouble throughout
the game and outshot the
Knights by a 20-5 spread.

By PATRICK CASEY
Two Walton seniors will
continue their playing ca-
reers in the fall of 2011 as
defensive lineman Deon
Lee and receiver Corliss
Stone signed scholarship
deals on Feb. 2 to play col-
lege football. Lee will attend
Troy University while Stone
signed with Tusculum Col-
lege in Tennessee.
Lee leaves Walton af-
ter four years as one of the
dominant defensive ends in


school history. Lee broke
into the Braves starting
line-up as a freshmen when
he recorded 12.5 sacks as
Walton posted an 8-2 mark
that year.

Lee recorded 32 sacks
in his career with another
33 tackles for loss against
other teams' rushing at-
tacks. He was responsible
for three blocked punts in
his career including a key
block against Chipley in


2010 that helped the Braves
win their fifth consecutive
contest against the Tigers.
Lee also recorded a fumble
recovery and an intercep-
tion over his four years of
play on the defense as Wal-
ton posted a 25-17 record in
his four years on the squad.
Lee, who is listed at 6-3, 215
pounds, had 69 tackles as a
senior and 83 tackles as a
junior.
Corliss Stone had a great
season in 2009 as he hauled


in 87 passes for 987 yards
as a junior with eight touch-
down receptions. His senior
year was cut short due to a
knee injury in the fifth game
of the year against FAMU
High. He caught 27 passes
for 478 yards with three
touchdowns before being
sidelined.
Stone caught 121 pass-
es for 1,520 yards with 11
touchdowns in three sea-
sons of varsity play for the
Braves.

Sports News and Notes:

Graziani hits 1,000 points

By PATRICK CASEY
Port St. Joe knocked Freeport's soccer.team out
of the playoffs with a 3-2 win last week in an open-
ing round Class 2A boys playoff contest. The host
team got a header from J. Mason Ray in the final
minute of the contest to pull out a dramatic win
that saw the Bulldogs' season come to a close with
a 6-11 record. Bryce Sefo scored both goals as he
and Kevin Castro helped the Bulldogs to the lead
in the contest only to see Port St. Joe respond to tie
the game at 2-2.
Michael Graziani scored seven points against
Paxton last week to reach the 1,000-point mark
then added 14 points against East Hill to increase
his total to 1,014 career points scored. The Bull-
dogs finished the regular season with a 17-8 record
and will enter the District 1, Class 2A tournament
on Friday night as the top seed. Freeport needs to
win only one game to reach the playoffs after miss-
ing them last season.
Ponce de Leon's boys basketball team won two
games this season after only one win last year. The
Pirates lost their regular season finale to Bethle-
hem last week 47-34 as seniors Zach Kralik, Chad
Brown and Henry Griffin played their final home
game. PDL would have to upset Pensacola Chris-
tian in an opening round game on Feb. 8 to reach
the Friday night semi-final rbund.
The weather outside has not been very good but
this is the opening week of the high school softball
season. Freeport plays the first game of the year in
the Area 5 with a home game against Panama City
Bay on Feb. 8. South Walton will play the first reg-
ular season baseball game when they host Rocky
Bayou on Feb. 15.

Local businesses


get tips to


survive and thrive


By DOTTY NIST
While we may have little
control over the economy be-
ing in a recession, "We can
totally refuse to participate
in the recession," Larry
Strain told local business
people on Feb. 2.
Strain, executive director
for the University of West
Florida's Small Business
Development Center, was
the featured speaker at the
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce's Power of Busi-
ness Luncheon.
"Good management prac-
tices are good management
practices whatever goes on
in the economy," Strain ex-
plained.
He advised business peo-
ple not to let bad economic
news cause them to take
their focus off the running
of their businesses. This is
a time to "be aggressive and
execute flawlessly" and to
refine business practices,
Strain advised. "It is defi-
nitely tiine to get lean and


mean," he added, by review-
ing spending and cutting
out unnecessary extras.
In marketing one's busi-
ness, it is time to "step your
game up," Strain continued.
A recession is the worst time
to cut out advertising one's
business, he noted, advising
instead, "bumping it up."
Advertising now may actu-
ally have more impact in the
current economic conditions,
he said, because others may
have dropped theirs. This
is also a good time for busi-
nesses to make sure they
are getting the most from
their advertising dollars, he
added.
Strain also urged busi-
ness people to "do everything
you can" for their existing
customers and make them
"feel special." This may be
as simple as writing custom-
ers a thank-you note, which
has great impact in this day
and age because it's done so

Republican gala


celebrates Reagan's


100th birthday


Story and photos by
DOTTYNIST
The second annual Black
Tie and Blue Jeans Gala,
sponsored by the Walton
'Republican Women Feder-
ated (WRWF), commemo-
rated the 100th birthday of
the 40th U.S. president, the
late Ronald Reagan.
Jennifer Carroll, Florida's
new lieutenant governor, was
featured speaker at the Feb.
5 sellout event, which took
place at the Hilton Sandes-
tin Beach Resort.
In her first speaking en-


gagement since taking office
in January, Carroll credited
the hard work of conserva-
tive citizens like the WRWF
members for the success of
Gov. Rick Scott and herself
in the election.
Carroll congratulated and
thanked the WRWF mem-
bers for their persistence
and expertise-in educating
voters in their community
about the role of govern-
ment. She also thanked the
organization members for
their support of the military
in service projects.


Carroll touched on her
20-year service in the U.S.
Navy, in which she rose
from enlisted jet mechanic
to Lt. Cmdr. Aviation Offi-
cer.
Carroll, who came to the
United States from Trinidad
at 8 years of age, explained
that the aviation mainte-
nance field had just opened
up to women when she en-
listed in the late 1970s, She
likened that situation to that
of her entry into politics and

Raises funds for Arts In Education

Tour of Homes showcases

residential gems


It's almost Valentine's
Day, and that means the
Cultural Arts Association
of Walton County is getting
ready for the annual Valen-
tine Tour of Homes, show-
casing some of the most
unique residential gems on
the beaches of south Wal-
ton. This self-guided tour
will take place Saturday,
Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. until
4 p.m. to raise funds for the
CAA's Educational Giving
Program, which provides
$20,000 annually in grants
to Walton County teachers,
need-based scholarships for
students to participate in
art programs and college
scholarships awarded to
outgoing high school seniors
and college students to pur-
sue degrees in the arts.
Event Chair Nina McCa-


slin-Horn carefully chose
the homes on this year's
tour, including "Chathain.
House," Seaside's original
dogtrott" recently renovated
in a fresh new style. Guests
will then take a quick shut-
tle ride to tour a 1925 Gulf-
front homestead named
"Emerald Crest" with Alys
Beach's five-star "Aspri Vil
la" across the street provid-
ing an interesting contrast.
"We wanted to present a
diverse array of styles that
have evolved through the
years, and provide an exclu-
sive opportunity for the pub-
lic to explore these beautiful
homes, while raising much
needed funds for the CAA,"
says McCaslin-Horn. "The
public can garner a unique

Nursery plans and two signs-get DRB approval


By DOTTY NIST
Aesthetics-related as-
pects of a proposed major
development, H&S Nursery
and Supplies, have been ap-
proved, along with two signs
for Furniture Resources, a
store located on the U.S. 98
Scenic Corridor.
The approvals took place
at the Feb. 3 Walton County
Design Review Board (DRB)
meeting at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.
Representing H&S Nurs-
ery and Supplies, engineer/
agent Dean Burgis explained
that the 1.04-acre site for
the business is located at the
northeast corner of the U.S.
98/Bishop-Tolbert Road in-
tersection. He said the office
for the business would be
in the existing strip mall at
the intersection---and that
plans were for trees, plants
and other materials for the
business to be stored on the
1.04-acre site. A wall up to
six feet tall would be con-
structed across the northern
one-third of the property,
Burgis added, with forklifts
and other machinery to be
kept behind the wall.
Board member Judith


Williams asked about a trac-
tor trailer that had been seen
on the property. Citizen at-
tendee Jacquee Markel also
expressed concern that the
property seemed to be get-
ting more and more "trashy"
in appearance. "More and
more stuff keeps appear-
ing," she said, bringing up
the recent addition of part of
an iron fence attached to a
rope closing off a driveway.
Board member Tim Norris
spoke of the goal of present-
ing the U.S. 98 Scenic Corri-
dor "with a great view." The
corridor must not become "a
junkyard," he emphasized.
The business was en-
couraged to "showcase" its
plants as allowed in the Sce-
nic Corridor Standards---but
to keep machinery for the
business shielded from the
corridor behind the wall.
Burgis provided assur-
ance that these conditions
would be part of the devel-
opment order and would be
complied with. He agreed
that the tractor trailer "has
to go."
Following a motion for
approval by Williams, the
plans were approved unani-

DSowbird NeMws

While planning for a second year as director of the Snow-
bird Singers, Karl Keilhau observed the chorus's winter
schedule prevents the singers from filling the air with holi-
day music for those holidays that occur when they are else-
where than the Emerald Coast. 'To remedy that shortcom-
ing and to demonstrate the Snowbird Singers' full range
of acoustical accomplishments, Karl, with the assistance of
Pattie Keilhau, will unveil a program at 2 p.m. Saturday,
Feb. 26 that includes many of the standards enjoyed during
those missed holidays. Among them: Easter, Canada Day,
Independence Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. And
that's not all folks! A few talented snowbirds will sparkle
the stage with guest appearances. Admission is open to the
public and is free with a good will offering for the benefit of
the host church, Santa Rosa Beach Community Church lo-
cated at 3524 West Highway 98, Santa Rosa Beach.
No sooner did the February General Meeting conclude
than did Club President Nancy Gehrke set out to prepare
the agenda for the March meeting scheduled for 10 a.m.
March 2 at Santa Rosa Beach Community Church located
at 3524 West Highway 98. Following some routine business
including the election of officers for 2011/2012, and a gener-
ous distribution of door prizes, the Snowbird Singers will
take center stage and present a program entitled, "Holiday
Celebrations We Miss."
When the Walton County Snowbirds learned the James
E. Plew Elementary School in Niceville became a first place
contender in the Dream Machine Recycle Rally's $100,000
first prize, they decided to act. Snowbirds and others can
help Plew Elementary's 591 students maintain its lead in
the national contest. To date, the school has scored high-
est in the nation by the collection of 220 cans per pupil. In
addition to helping Plew Elementary and the environment,
the program supports the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for
U.S. Veterans with Disabilities. Snowbirds willing to aid
this cause may drop off non-alcoholic aluminum cans and
plastic drink bottles (sodas, Gatorade, bottled water, Sobe,
Dasani, etc.) at Faith Assembly Fellowship Hall located at
306 South Geronimo Street in Miramar Beach. Look for the
receptacle situated near the rear of the building. Easy.
In the Let's Not Take This For Granted File, we find in-
scribed the name Toy Arnett who happens to be the pastor
of Faith Assembly Church located at 306 South Geronimo
Street in Miramar Beach, which is also, for all practical
purposes, the headquarters and main hangout for the Wal-
ton County Snowbirds. It is Pastor Toy and his gracious
wife, Rena, who make possible so many of the good things
that happen year after year. Not only do snowbirds gather
there weekly to register their membership and enroll in
one or more of nearly three dozen programs, but it also
serves as the meeting place for several activities including
dancing, exercise, music programs, the computer club, and
more. The good pastor not only makes the church's facilities
available but also amiably lends an ear to address special
needs such as the Recycle Rally to which he recently lent
his support. Should you meet him, mark him well, for then
you will know what one of the good guys looks like.
According to Betty Martin, the Walton County Snow-
birds has two bridge playing opportunities. One group
meets each Monday at 1 p.m. at Beach House located at
675 Scenic Gulf Drive. Those interested in joining in the
fun may contact Betty at 654-9753. The second group meets
Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Chateau La Mer's #2 clubhouse.
Jerry and Jean Emholtz at 654-5696 are happy to answer
inquiries about Wednesday bridge. Harriet Carlson took
first place on Jan. 17, Lynn Smith did the same on the 19.
On Jan. 31, Dorie Olmstead placed first, Bud Jacobson, 2nd
place. Third Place went to Pat Clancy. On Feb. 2, first place
went to Clarke Tummon, second to Dian Meadors and third
to Dale Morris.
Euchre scores for Feb. 1 are Men 1st place, Bob Landstoffer,
87, 2nd Don Duritsch, 85; Women 1st place, Betty Snider-
Glover 83, 2nd Jeanette Diggins, 81, Paul Terrill, 81.
Bob Collins recorded the third hole-in-one of the sea-
son for the Tuesday and Thursday golf leagues at the Golf
Garden on Feb. 1. Collins aced the difficult par 3, fourth
hole. First place for Tuesday's match went to Harry Olson,
Elaine Olson, Elke Schroeder, and David Marsh.
According to co-chairs Patti Hand and Karen Dahl, more
than 200 women signed up for the annual ladies luncheon
and fashion show set for Feb. 23. For last minute tickets

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10,2011


SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


It probably doesn't come
as any surprise for me to
tell you I really love words.
I love the fact that there is
a word for everything. There
are words describing other
words and finding just ex-
actly the right word to con-
vey exactly what you want
PATEL to say always feels good.
I subscribe, via electronic
mail, to a word a day service
l that sends a word with the
a l proper pronunciation, the
meaning and an example
of using it in a sentence ev-
ery day. Some of the words
are so obscure; this humble
writer could probably never
id Patel use them in a sentence. A
vith one lot of the words are ones we
;a gam- all use in every day speech
[-degree and writing. The interesting
mount of thing is that so very many of
[-degree them are totally new to me
ean was and I've been reading a lot
ount of ever since I learned how to
[-degree do it.
T also A recent word from this
it and service was tmesis (tuh mee
.coholic sis), which is the word for
license stuffing a word in the mid-
tle club die of another word, such
as abso-bloody-lutely. Most
of the insertions that come
can and readily to mind are not fit
.nto the for a family newspaper, but
isn't it keen there is an ac-
tual word for this practice?
One of the first long words
ly a lot of us learn is onomato-
lly poeia, which is the forma-
tion of a word such as boom
or cuckoo which imitate the
sound associated with the
avel ac- word. It's strange that it
elers in takes such a long word to


describe what are usually
short words.
One of the words this
week was gasconade which
means to boast extrava-
gantly. As a writer, I doubt
I'll ever get a chance to use
it, but some well versed re-
porter for the Richmond
Times-Dispatch found a way
with this sentence: "Stanley
Hauerwas's explanation is
not appreciated in an era of
instant broadcast and elec-
tronic gasconade."
These days you don't hear
much from any sources us-
ing words unfamiliar to
us. I seldom have to look
up words from the things I
read, and having a diction-
ary nearby when I was read-
ing was always standard.
One of the words I can
never remember the mean-
ing of is quotidian, which is
strange because the word
simply means ordinary. The
only person I know who ever
said it is my friend Rawlins
McKinney, who knows a lot
of words and writes better
fiction than anyone I know.
When he said it, I pretend-
ed to know what it meant
and looked it up when I got
home, but the next time I en-
countered it in prose, I had
to look it up again. Maybe
after this I will remember
it.
Many people use a long
complicated word when a
short word would be bet-
ter for understanding. Of
course .there is a word for
that too and it is sesquipe-

dality. Think of the debates
between William F. Buck-
ley, Jr. and Gore Vidal for
examples of this if you are
old enough.
So I guess I'm rambled on
long enough, but I will con-
tinue my search for the per-
fect word for every occasion
in which I must construct a
sentence. It's my destiny.
Oh wait, one more thing.
By the time you read this I
will have taken the online
Jeopardy! Test for the fifth
year in a row. I'm no quit-
ter. My bucket list is pretty
short, but appearing as a
contestant on Jeopardy! is
right there at the top. Last
year I was tired and I choked
and I would probably be
embarrassed if I knew my
score. Hopefully I'll do bet-
ter this year and get called
up for stage two of the pro-
cess.

Friends of Shelter seek

The Friends of Walton
County Animal Shelter are

on Saturday, Feb. 12.
Ella Caro, treasurer of
the Friends group, is taking
calls for donations of items
to sell and items may also
be dropped off at the shel-
ter, 365 Triple G Road, just
north of DeFuniak Springs.
The Gulf Place Yard Sale


will be held on Saturday,
Feb. 26, and more items
will be needed for that sale.
Items should be in good con-
dition and they will be priced
to move. This is a chance to

going into your wallet for
money.
Jewelry, books, kitchen

seldom, he observed.
Phone calls and e-mails
to customers go a long way,
as well, Strain noted. "Do all
those things that Mama told
you you ought to do," he ad-
vised.
Another recommenda-
tion was for business people
to strive to be seen often in
public, for example at com-
munity and sporting events,
because this serves as a re-
inforcement of customers'
choice "of doing business
with you."
Strain stressed the im-
portance of "having the right
people on the bus" with one's
business, people who are
passionate about the busi-
ness and represent it well


in the community. He also
recommended that business
leaders be open and truthful
with others in the company.
Strain urged business
people to "embrace digital
media," which has the ad-
vantages of being "instant,
measurable and cheap."
He emphasized the impor-
tance of keeping a positive
mind set despite economic
challenges and talking in a
positive manner. "It's really
really easy to catch the blue
flu," he warned.
Strain's final recom-
mendations were common
sense and humorous, "Be
sure you are taking care of
yourself;" "Give yourself the
opportunity to be creative;"

coming the "driving force
for collaborative leadership"
in Walton County, in sup-
porting existing businesses,
attracting new ones, and
promoting sustainable de-
velopment and quality of

For the
next
month,
beads will
be tossed,
parties will
be held,
king cakes
will be
eaten, and
the South welcomes
the entire world. It is
Mardi Gras season
across the South and a
200 year-old tradition
once again defines who
we are all about.
.......................................
If you noticed purple,
green and gold flags flying
from patios, colorful
wreaths on doors, that are
not red and silver, and seen
an unusual dessert being
prepared in your local
bakery, that means it is all
in preparation for carnival
season, or Mardi Gras. It is
the time of the year that
millions from around the
world make their way to
the Florida Emerald Coast,
New Orleans and Mobile,
for a month.

It is generally accepted
that Mardi Gras came to
America in 1699 with the
French explorer, Sieur
d'Iberville. The festival had
been celebrated as a major
holiday in Paris since the
Middle Ages. Iberville
sailed into the Gulf of
Mexico and, from there,
launched an expedition
along the Mississippi River.
In French, "Mardi Gras"
literally means "Fat


Tuesday," so named
because it falls on the day
before Ash Wednesday and
is the last day prior to Lent,
a 40-day season of prayer
and fasting observed by the
Roman Catholic Church
(and many other Christian
denominations) which ends
on Easter Sunday.

The origin of "Fat
Tuesday" is believed to
have come from the ancient
pagan custom of parading a
fat ox through the town
streets. Such pagan
holidays were filled with
excessive eating, drinking
and general bawdiness
prior to a period of fasting.
The modern day Carnival
Season is sandwiched
between Christmas and
Lent, with Christmas Day
being Dec. 25 on the
Gregorian Calendar.
The traditional colors of
Mardi Gras are purple
(symbolic of justice), green
(symbolic of faith) and gold
(symbolic of power). The
1892 Rex Parade theme
("Symbolism of Colors")
first gave meaning to the
representation of the
official Mardi Gras colors.
Those colors are still used
today as the official colors
of Carnival season.


Today,
Mardi Gras
| is celebrated
Lip S not only in
the South,
but is also
'u ~ held in the
Brazilian
city of Rio
de Janeiro,
arguably the
world's most elaborate
Carnival location with its
Samba Dromo parades,
which annually attract a
huge number of tourists
from all corners of the
globe.

Regardless of where the
festivals take place,
however, all share a
common party atmosphere
inherently associated with
the celebrations. But it is
the South that has kept the
tradition alive, and now
includes events that are
held not only for the
wealthy and elite, but for
anyone and everyone.
The following are cities
that will be celebrating
carnival season over the
next four weeks:

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2011


FAMILY FEATURES
Valentine's Day naturally brings thoughts of hearts,
flowers, sweetness and love. But did you know that
it also falls during American Heart Month? A perfect
time to start taking care of your heart and the hearts
of the ones you love.
You might think that a heart-healthy diet is boring or flavorless.
Actually, eating for your heart can add a lot of flavor, and some
of it may come from surprising sources such as watermelon.
Eating watermelon can help maintain cardiovascular health. That's
because the amino acid called citrulline in watermelon increases
free arginine which helps maintain blood flow, the arteries, and
overall cardiovascular function.
To get more scrumptious recipes like these, and to learn more
about the heart benefits of watermelon, visit www.watermelon.org.

Watermelon S'mores


Grilled Scallops and
Watermelon Mini Kebabs
12 sea scallops
4 cups boiling vegetable or
chicken broth
24 1 x 1-inch watermelon
cubes
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh minced
ginger
Cut the scallops into halves across
the diameter to create half-moon
shapes. Place them in a heatproof
casserole dish in a single layer.
Pour the boiling clear broth over
the scallops and let them poach
for 5 minutes. Drain and cool the
scallops. On each skewer alternate
1 half-moon scallop, then 2 water-
melon cubes, then another half-
moon scallop. Mix together the soy
sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger
and brush the kebabs as they are
grilled over a medium hot grill for
about 90 seconds per side turning
once. Serve warm. Serves 12 as
an appetizer.



Watermelon
season is roughly May
through October. But
you can enjoy delicious
imported watermelon
all year round.

The 2011 Seaside race is filling up fast


Local runners should
be thinking ahead to next
spring. The ninth annual
Seaside School Half Mara-
thon and 5K Run is filling
up quickly. Race organizers
expect it to sell out before
the holidays.
The race takes place on
Sunday, March 6, 2011,
with the starting line at the


Seaside Post Office. The half
marathon begins at 7 a.m.
and the 5K at 7:30 a.m. To
register, go to the race web-
site at www.SeasideSchool-
HalfMarathon.com or pick
up a registration form at
the Seaside Neighborhood
School. The event is the
school's largest annual fund-
raiser. It brings runners,


their friends, and families,
about 7,000 people in all, to
the beaches of south Wal-
ton from all over the United
States and Canada. Race
organizers say from 7 10
percent of the participants
visit this area for the first
time, so the event is good
for marketing this destina-
tion and for fueling the local


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

A day at the Mattie

Kelley Arts Center


By ASHLEYAMASON


Madeline and

the Bad Hat

Upon proofreading sev-
eral announcements cross,-
ing my desk last week, I
learned on Friday, Feb. 4,
a children's show, Madeline
and the Bad Hat, would be
onstage at the Mattie Kelley
Arts Center at Northwest
Florida State College (NWF-
SC) in Niceville, as well as a
free concert by the St. Olaf
Band that evening. Delight-
ed were both my wallet and
cultural yearning. I elected
to attend both.
The 11:30 a.m. showing of
Ludwig Bemelman's Mad-
eline, based on the beloved
children's series of "twelve


little girls in two straight
lines" was a charming hour-
long musical performed by a
four-person troupe.
Through song and dance,
and simple set changes, the
troupe narrates the arrival
of Madeline's new neigh-
bor. Madeline's classmates
and teacher Miss Clavel are
excited by the news of the
Spanish ambassador and
his young son Pepito mov-
ing into the house next door.
However, the ambassador
is often away on matters of
state, leaving Pepito to en-
tertain himself. Pepito's un-
friendly antics with animals
lead Madeline to declare
him a bad hat.
When Miss Clavel gives
Pepito a toolbox to occupy
his time, he builds a guillo-
tine for decapitating chick-
ens! He traps and cages


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 10, 2011


frogs, snakes, and cats, and
later releases a cat into a
pack of dogs. Nonetheless,
Pepito considers himself a
"Spanish gentleman" and is
baffled when Madeline re-
fuses to be his friend.
Miss Clavel explains
to Madeline that Pepito
needs a good friend to help
him change and Madeline
accepts the job, even tell-
ing Pepito's father his son
needs more of his time. Af-
ter a side-splitting rendi-
tion of Pepito the matador
(during which he learned
not to harm a bull), Pepito
vows to "turn over a new
leaf," extending kindness to
all animals and becoming a
vegetarian. Madeline makes
a vow as well to never again
call her new friend Pepito a
bad hat.
Madeline and the Bad
Hat was performed by the
ArtsPower National Tour-
ing Theater. To learn more

THE ST. OLAF BAND, which received rave reviews worldwide, performed a free concert
at NWFSC Feb. 4.


The St. Olaf Each composition awak-
Sened a realm of emotions
Band and imaginings.
During the Children's
I hae n r March. ("Over the hills and
I have never attended far away"), I could imagine
any concert like that of the the earliest signs of spring,
St. Olaf Band. The nearly buds opening, flowers in
100-member band is corn- raindrops

colo, flute, oboe, clarinet, un gidd a

phonium, tuba, string bass, erally cast a spell which re-
keyboard, harp and percus- called childhood memories

With limited musical of exploration.

knowledge, I can speak only formance, Journey to the

recommend attending a per-

The St. Olaf Band is
from St. Olaf College, a lib-
eral arts college founded in
1874 in Northfield, Minn,
and has been named one of
America's preeminent bands
by The New Yorker. To learn
more visit www.stolaf.edu.
Needless to say after two
such. magnificent perfor-
mances, my day at the Mat-
tie Kelley Arts Center far
exceeded expectations. Just
like Madeline and Pepito, I
too will turn over a new leaf,
vowing to catch more shows
at NWFSC.

the challenges accompany-
ing it. She expressed grati-
tude to Scott "for enabling
me to break the glass ceil-
ing."
Calling Ronald Reagan
"one of our greats," Carroll
remarked on how much he
and the qualities he exem-
plified are missed today.
"We have gone so far from
operating on principle," she
observed.
Carroll commented that
many today are claiming to
be "Reagan politicians"---
but should be asked if this
is demonstrated in their ac-
tions.
Following Reagan's ex-
ample, she continued, she
and Scott have pledged to
make sure citizens' tax dol-
lars are spent properly, that
redundancy is reduced, and
that government's role is a
limited one.


)NTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


Carroll provided several
quotes from Reagan and
commented on them. One
was, "Freedom is never
more than one generation
away from extinction."
She remarked that many
of the threats that the coun-
try is now facing go back
many years, 'some back to
the time of Reagan's presi-
dency.
"Freedom will be taken
away in an instant if we
do not protect and defend
the United States," Carroll
warned, adding that the
Constitution must be pro-
tected and taught to each
generation, who must stay
strong.
She called for govern-
ment to keep to the role of
"protecting the people" and
not "running our lives."
Turning to health insur-
ance, Carroll charged that


the affordability problem
had been addressed in the
wrong way with the new
health care law passed by
Congress. Instead, she said,
providing heath insurance
should have been made
competitive by allowing the
public to "shop around for
what they want" in a health
insurance policy.
"Government should not
tell you you're too rich,"
Carroll emphasized, observ-
ing that people come to the
United States for opportu-
nity.
Neither should govern-
ment try to control people's
weight and whether they
eat trans fats, she said, add-
ing that this a "pet peeve"
for her.
Carroll provided another
Reagan quote, "I have won-
dered at times what the Ten
Commandments would look
like if Moses had run them
through the U.S. Congress."
"I say that the one thing
that binds us together is our
faith," Carroll asserted, urg-
ing all to guard against let-
ting a time come when that
faith cannot be publicly ex-
pressed.
The gala concluded with
a Ronald Reagan birth-
day cake being sliced and
served.
Following the event,
WRWF President Charlotte
Flynt expressed apprecia-
tion in particular to three
WRWF officers, Diane High-
tower, Karen Schibler, and
Margaret Crozier, for their
tireless work in setting up
the gala. Other WRWF of-
ficers for 2010-2011 in-
clude Russelle Bryan, Anna
Weeks, Carla Nolen, and
Zuma Banks.
