By ASHLEYAMASON
The Walton County
School District announced
it received Race to the Top
grant funds from the Flori-
da Department of Education
in the amount of $790,129.
The funds will be used to
implement district-wide
goals including closing the
achievement gap, increas-
ing the graduation rate and
advancing science, technol-
ogy, engineering, and math-
ematics (STEM) priorities.
At its regular board meet-
ing March 1, Walton County
students were recognized for
placing in the Florida Chau-
tauqua student museum
exhibit. A tie for first place
occurred in the elementary
division between the fourth
grade class at Paxton School
for their exhibit "Country
Store of the Past" and the
fourth grade class at Mossy
Head Elementary School for
their exhibit "Seminole Cul-
ture." In the secondary divi-
sion, Emerald Coast Mid-
dle School won first place
for their exhibit, "Journey
through Pensacola: Then
and Now," and at Walton
High School, Dimitri Zacho's
Drawing and Painting II art
class received an honorable
mention for their "Journey
into Florida" display. Each
of these winning classes re-
ceived a check for $100 from
the Florida Chautauqua
Center.
The Walton Middle
School drama club was se-
lected as one of the top eight
finalists in a video competi-
tion sponsored by the Flori-
da Bureau of Immunization.
WMS students created a
30-second public service an-
nouncement titled "Cover
your mouth," showcasing
why HPV or meningitis vac-
cines are important to teen-
agers. Drama Club Spon-
sor Peggy Alexander won't
receive official word on the
winner of the contest until
March 11, but according to

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS heard from county staff and the public at the March 1 adoption hearing for amendments
implementing Walton County's Evaluation and Appraisal Report. (Photo by Dotty Nist)



Walton County adopts



EAR-based amendments


By DOTTY NIST
Approved at a March 1 fi-
nal adoption hearing was a
package of amendments im-
plementing Walton County's
Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR), which was
approved by the state in
2007.
A measure of the Wal-
ton County Comprehensive
Plan's effectiveness in meet-
ing community goals, the
EAR is required by the state
on a periodic basis. The
amendment package had
been approved in Septem-
ber for transmission to the
state Department of Com-
munity Affairs for review,
comments, and recommen-
dations.
During the March 1 adop-
tion hearing at the Walton
County Courthouse, county
commissioners considered
recommendations from the
state regarding the pro-
posed amendments and
took input from citizens and
county staff. Commissioners
present for the meeting in-
cluded Scott Brannon, Sara
Comander, Cecilia Jones,
and Kenneth Pridgen.
The county's proposals
for revisions to its compre-
hensive plan elements and
its comprehensive plan map
series were approved at the
March 1 meeting with few
changes.
A total of 42 proposed
county-sponsored land use
amendments were pre-
sented next. All but two of
those amendments were ap-
proved.
Neighborhood concern


emerged over one proposed
county-sponsored amend-
ment that would have
changed five acres owned by
the city of DeFuniak Springs
from Estate Residential to
Public Facilities. Located
in the unincorporated area
off Peck Cawthon Road, the
parcel is the site of a water
tower.
While the city had not re-
quested the land use change,
the county had proposed it
due to the property meeting
the definition of public facil-
ity property.
Since the property is lo-
cated near residential areas,
some neighbors of the par-
cel were apprehensive that
future uses of the property
might not be in harmony
with the neighborhood if the
new land use classification
were approved.
DeFuniak Springs plan-
ning director Greg Scoville
commented that, other than
water extraction, the water
tower and a pump station,
the city had no other plans
for the parcel. He added
that they would have no ob-
jection to the land use clas-
sification remaining Estate
Residential as long as those
uses would be allowed.
The commissioners voted
4-0 not to adopt the land use
category change.
There was also concern
by citizens about an amend-
ment that would have
changed a 0.141-acre parcel
in Blue Mountain Beach, lo-
cated at the corner of Floun-
der Street and CR-30A, from
Residential Preservation


to Neighborhood Commer-
cial. The property is located
across CR-30A from White
Cliffs and Adagio.
One neighboring resident
said it had not been a prob-
lem for him when the prop-
erty had been used as a doc-
tor's office, but that he was
fearful of what use might be
made of the parcel in the fu-
ture if the land use category
change were approved.
The building on the prop-
erty is 800 square feet in
size.
Jennifer Christensen of
Walton County Planning
explained that the new land
use classification would al-
low neighborhood-serving
uses, including a small res-
taurant or cafe with no out-
door music permitted. She
added that, however, use
in this manner would be
severely limited due to the
size of the property, parking
and buffering requirements
that would come into play
with this type of use.
Owners of the property
commented that they had
a small restaurant in mind
which might serve break-
fast. It was their hope that
many-customers would walk
and ride bicycles. They ex-
pressed a desire to have a
positive influence and ad-
dress any community con-
cerns.
Brannon expressed con-
cern that it would be inevi-
table, considering the size
of the parcel, that for a res-
taurant, the owners would
be asking to use county
right-of-way for part of the


parking. Comander noted
that the county is trying to
"crack down" on the use of
right-of-way for parking.
A vote was taken on the
proposed amendment, with
Pridgen and Jones voting in
favor and Brannon and Co-
mander voting no. The tie
vote resulted in the failure
of the amendment, leaving
the land use classification of
the parcel Residential Pres-
ervation.
The 0.73-acre Rock Hard
jewelry store property on
CR-30A in Grayton Beach
was approved for a change
from Residential Preserva-
tion to Neighborhood Com-
mercial, but not without
comments from a neighbor
who said he had heard that
a "beer garden" and outdoor
music were planned there.
Property owner Rocky Hard
responded that there was no
truth to the rumor, and that
the property would remain
a jewelry store, although
weddings and other gather-
ings would continue in the
courtyard.
Christensen noted that
the parcel had been des-
ignated as commercial in
covenants and restrictions
of the subdivision contain-
ing it, and that any outdoor
seating or music would re-
quire separate approval on
a case-by-case basis.
The Seagrove Villas and
Wheelhouse properties on
CR-30A in Seagrove, 1.308
acres and 1.309 acres in
size, respectively, were ap-

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

DFSPD to participate in


mission of Special Olympics


The mission of Special
Olympics Florida is to pro-
vide year-round sports
training and athletic compe-
tition in a variety of Olym-
pic-style sports for children
and adults with intellectual
disabilities. It gives them
the continuing opportunity
to develop physical fitness,
demonstrate courage, expe-
rience joy and participate in
a sharing of gifts, skills and
friendships with their fami-
lies and other Special Olym-
pic athletes and the commu-
nity.
The signature event of
the law enforcement com-
munity's year-round sup-
port of Special Olympics is
the annual law enforcement
Torch Run. For 28 years,
the "Flame of Hope" has tra-
versed Florida in an intra-
state relay of simultaneous
routes throughout the state,
covering countless thou-
sands of miles. The torch


is carried by federal, state,
and local law enforcement
officers all the way from the
Alabama-Florida state line
in Century to the opening
ceremonies of Florida's an-
nual State Summer Games,
which will be held May 13-
15, 2011 at Disney's Wide
World of Sports. The first
leg of the Torch Run begins
in Escambia County (Cen-
tury) on Monday, March
28, and ends with the final
leg in Osceola County (Kis-
simmee) on Friday, May 13,
with stops along the way
in virtually every county in
Florida.
The Florida Law En-
forcement Torch Run is the
largest annual public rela-
tions and fundraising event
amongst Special Olympics
Florida and law enforce-
ment agencies. Statewide,
the participating chiefs, of-
ficers, sheriffs, deputies,
special agents, correctional


officers, probation and pa-
role officers, military po-
lice and cadets from virtu-
ally every branch of federal,
state, county and municipal
law enforcement, represent
a total of over 300 differ-
ent agencies. In 2010, the
Florida Department of Cor-
rections led all other agen-
cies in the number of par-
ticipants and the amount of
money raised, and is once
again proud to be a support-
.ing partner of the Special
Olympics Florida Law En-
forcement Torch Run.

The Walton County leg of
the SOFL LTR is scheduled
for March 31. Local, state,
and federal law enforce-
ment officers will gather
at approximately 8:30 a.m.
in DeFuniak Springs, and
carry the torch eastbound
on U.S. 90 and finish at the
Walton County Courthouse
front lawn.


By ELLA CARO
A new piece of surgical
equipment will make cats
and dogs at the county ani-
mal shelter safer and more
comfortable during spay and
neuter operations they must
undergo before they can go
home with their new adopt-
ing owners. A new nonprofit
corporation has donated a
state-of-the-art hydraulic
surgical table with hinged
heated sides, to the shelter's
clinic, Friends of the Walton
County Animal Shelter. In-
troduced to the public just
six months ago, Friends
raised the $3,100 needed to
purchase the table and have
it delivered to the clinic.
The shelter's veterinar-
ian, Jack Blackwood Jr.,
thanked the group for the gift
and said, "The heated sur-


face will provide great com-
fort for the pets undergoing
surgery, and the adjustable
sides will benefit the safety
of our animals. Thank you
for your gracious donation."
Lois Marlow, shelter
manager was all smiles as
she watched the table get
set up and cleaned after de-
livery. She was the one who
told the Friends of the need
for the new table-a need
emphasized by the increas-
ing number of adoptions
from the shelter with a re-
sulting decrease in animals
that cannot find homes. The
adoption price of $55 per
animal is one of the lowest
and is a great bargain as it
includes spaying or neuter-
ing.
The large modern shel-
ter, the first ever in Walton


County, opened in January
of 2010. A few months lat-
er a small group of county
residents got together and
agreed to form a support
group for the shelter, which
is a refuge for cats, and
dogs that are lost, abused
and unwanted. The first
public meeting was held in
September of 2010 and the
members now meet on the
third Wednesday of every
month.
For animal lovers inter-
ested in joining Friends to
help with future plans, mem-
berships are $10 and maybe
sent to Friends of the Wal-
ton County Animal Shel-
ter, P. O. Box 2351, Santa
Rosa Beach, FL 32459. For
more information, call 231-

LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS Gulcin (1) and Darrell Freeman and Carl Cotton have set up shop at the One Stop Triangle
south of Freeport. The location was formerly the One Stop Grocery at the intersection of U.S. 331 and CR-3280. "This is
going to be a hot spot," said Gulcin.


AMENDMENTS FROM PAGE 1-A


proved for a change from
Residential Preservation to
Neighborhood Commercial.
A proposed amendment
that would have changed
more than 2,447 acres, lo-
cated north and south of
CR-3280, to Black Creek
Low-Density Residential
was modified as a result of
recommendations by the
state. The property is cur-
rently classified as Large-
Scale Agriculture, General
Agriculture, and North Bay
NPA Rural Town Center.
There had been DCA con-
cerns about the suitability
of the property for the pro-
posed classification, along
with the adequacy of protec-
tion that would be provid-
ed to adjoining Northwest
Florida Water Management
District (NWFWMD) land to
the south.

In response to those
concerns, county staff rec-
ommended reducing the
proposed density on the
property from two units per
acre to one unit per acre, add-
ing a 30-percent open space
requirement, and adding a
100-foot buffer adjacent to
the NWFWMD land. Staff
also recommended removing
from the amendment 868
acres now foreclosed on and
at auction, located south of
CR-3280. ...
Speaking ,o Tx' the owner:
who Had pli~ffi!T td'd6'An
environmentally-sensitive
development on the prop-
erty, Lloyd Blue commented
that, due to economic pres-
sures, they. had been un-


able to salvage the compre-
hensive project they had
planned and were unable to
continue to commit to the
protection of the sensitive
sand-hill lakes in the center
of the 800 acres. He added
that therefore the owners
thought it appropriate to re-
move the 800 acres from the
amendment---but that he
would encourage those acres
to be included in the future
if its new owners did commit
to their environmental pro-
tection.
The amendment was ap-
proved 4-0, minus the 800
acres and with the density,
open-space and buffer re-
quirement recommenda-
tions attached for the re-
mainder of the property.
Approved for a change
from Large-Scale Agricul-
ture to Rural Village was a
large parcel east of Bruce,
as part of an amendment
that would originally have
included 1.681 acres. As rec-
ommended by the state, 700
acres were removed from
that amendment.
Eleven proposed pri-
vately-sponsored land use
amendments were approved,
as. well.
One proposed privately-
sponsored amendment,
which would have increased
density on a 27-acre property
,,located east of the East He-
:'it.t Ro:ad/Aiderbertri'yRoad
i'teriectin "from" Conserva-
tion one unit per 2.5 acres to
Conservation two units per
acre, drew public comment.
The applicants maintained
that the 27 acres were part


of a 54-acre parcel that
should have been assigned
the same classification but
had not been due to a scriv-
ener's error.
Christie Coldewey asked
the commissioners not to
add density on the 27-acre
portion in order to avoid
increasing population on a
high-hazard coastal area,
She also raised concerns
regarding eagles nesting
on adjacent property to the
east.
Representing the appli-
cant, engineer Scott Jen-
kins noted that a monitor-
ing plan was being provided
to protect the nesting eagles
and that a 660-foot buffer
would be implemented, as
required, from nesting ar-
eas. He added that all wet-
lands on the property had
been recorded as conserva-
tion easements.
The vote on the amend-
ment was 2-2, with Brannon
and Pridgen voting in favor
and Comander and Jones
voting no. As a result, the
amendment failed, with the
classification and density
on the 27-acre property re-
maining unchanged.
DCA had recommended
that one proposed privately-
sponsored amendment not
be adopted. The amend-
ment would' have changed
250 acres in the,.Red Bay
area, located soith'iof the
I-10/SR81 interseetion,from'
Large-Scale Agriculture to
Rural Village.
Christensen explained
that it had been the state's
opinion that the land use


change would have been
premature, due to lack of
infrastructure facilities in
the area and concerns about
traffic capacity. Following
the DCA recommendation,
the commissioners voted
4-0 not to adopt the amend-
ment.
The adopted amendments
are to undergo review by
DCA to verify that state rec-
ommendations have been
cdmplied with. The state
will then have 45 days to
issue a notice of intent for
final approval of the amend-
ments. Barring administra-
tive challenges during the
comment period after the
issuance of the notice of in-
tent, the amendments are
to go into effect at the end of
that period.
Asked how the completion
of this multi-year effort to
implement the EAR would
benefit the county, Walton
County Senior Planner Mac
Carpenter responded, "Our
comprehensive plan is more
relevant."
Carpenter added that the
completion of the amend-
ments implementing the
EAR also means that the
county will again be able
to accept applications at
a later date from the pub-
lic for land use classifica-
tion changes. The state had
mandated a moratorium on
new land use amendment
applications until the com-
pletion of the current EAR
process. Carpenter said that
the county expects requests
for new land use classifica-
tion changes to exceed the
acreage allowed by the state
yearly, and that a lottery for
applications is anticipated.


Pennies for Caring benefit


How much is a penny
worth to you? Would you be
willing to share those stray
pennies that are scattered
around your house or car if
you knew they would make
a difference in someone's
life here in Walton County?
The Friendship House,
Brain Disorder Support
Foundation is beginning a
campaign to collect enough
pennies to "Cover Walton
County" all 669,440 acres
of it. (WOW! That's a lot of


pennies.) We desperately
need your help. There are
many families in Walton
County who are affected
by Alzheimer's Disease,
and many 24/7 caregivers
who desperately need a few
hours relief from the stress.
Every penny collected will
go directly to provide respite
time for an overburdened
caregiver.
Collection jugs will
be placed in businesses
throughout the county, or

Because students are out of
school March 10-11, Alexan-
der said she hopes to receive
notice of the official winner
before Friday. "The kids are
going crazy," she said. "It's
been a wonderful, wonder-
ful response district wide. It
was amazing, we had a lot of
help, we had it on the radio,
on Facebook... but I don't
want to count my chickens
before they hatched."
Alexander's son, John, a
radio DJ, used his film and
editing expertise to shoot
the video, which the stu-
dents wanted to look like
just another day at school.
"I never could have filmed
this," she said of John, "and
the kids were fabulous. They
just went for it, they wanted
to make a video other kids
would watch and pay atten-
tion to, and we are so proud
of them." Visit the above
website to view the video.
Continuing to the consent
agenda, the board approved
all items including the Wal-
ton High School girls' tennis
schedule and track sched-
ules. Members of WHS DCT


travelled to Orlando March
3-6 for DCT state competi-
tion, and the WHS academic
team will travel to Orlando
April 6-10 to compete in the
state tournament.
All personnel recommen-
dations passed unanimous-
ly, including hiring the new
athletic director of Walton
High School, Bobby Bennett.
Bennett along with his wife,
and three daughters greeted
the WCSB and Superinten-
dent. "I am going to do my
absolute best to make you
proud and make the commu-
nity proud, and make a dif-
ference in the lives of young
people," he said. From Fay-
etteville, N.C., Bennett com-
mented the position at WHS
is one of the "premier" ath-
letic director jobs in Florida.
After touring WHS, Bennett
commented, "The school fa-
cility is the nicest one I've
ever been in."

The next regular WCSB
meeting will be March 15 at
5 p.m. preceded by a 4 p.m.
workshop to discuss restruc-
turing schools due to contin-
ued student enrollment.

Editorial comment



At last,



a cause



to unite us

By BRUCE COLLIER

Forget the squabbles in Congress, let the Tea Party sim-
mer down and Charlie Sheen file for unemployment ("will
WIN for food...."). We have something we need to address,
that affects us all in this area.
Oysters.
I wrote an editorial last year about developments in the
oyster industry, specifically concerns about Vibrio vulnifi-
cus bacteria and regulatory suggestions that oysters be fro-
zen for market. I was against it, though I read a survey
that reported that while consumers can tell the difference
between previously frozen and never frozen oysters, "there
was no clear-cut preference" between them. Acceptance and
preference were pretty much equal.
Which means we'll eat them, come hell or or hard water.
Just put them on the table and pass the hot sauce. Keep the
beer coming.
Just last month, however, in BioScience magazine, I saw
a short but rather depressing article with the catchy name,
"Oyster Reefs at Risk and Recommendations for Conserva-
tion, Restoration, and Management." The lead writer of the
piece is Michael W. Beck, and 14 others contributed.
It says that the oyster reef conditions globally are pretty
terrible. Most of Australia's waters are rated "functionally
extinct," likewise Spain's, with French, British, Mediterra-
nean and Scandinavian waters all rated "poor. In Ameri-
ca, the Atlantic and Pacific coasts are poor-to-functionally
extinct. Bummer.
One notable exception glaringly obvious when viewing
the reefs on a world map is the Gulf of Mexico. The good old
hurricane-ridden, oil-fouled, jellyfish-strewn Gulf of Mexico
rates a "fair," all over. Considering that only two isolated
areas off the northeast and southeast coasts of South Amer-
ica rated a "good" worldwide, I was encouraged.
If you really want to get all nerdy, there's a book in the
Walton County Library system (I have it checked out, so
you have to wait) called The Big Oyster, by Mark Kurlan-
sky. It's about the history of oyster gathering, cultivation,
commerce and consumption in New York. According to
Kurlansky, humans have never been able to resist overdo-
ing it when it comes to oysters. The ancient Romans, Meso-
Americans, even the Indians that greeted the white settlers
in the American Northeast, all of them depleted their natu-
ral supplies of oysters. And we're keeping up the tradition.
However, the Gulf seems to be the place. Beck's BioSci-
ence article opines, "Oyster fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico
are probably the last remaining opportunity to achieve both
large scale oyster reef conservation and sustainable fisher-
ies. While scientists and managers focus attention on rela-
tively few well-known estuaries with oysters, such as the
Chesapeake Bay...needs are not being met elsewhere and
opportunities are being missed. There is a real opportunity
for sustainable fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico [emphasis
added] ...."
Part of the solution, interestingly enough, may come
from response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Says Beck,
"There is also common ground among the aquaculture in-
dustry [which farms oysters], environmental groups, and
managers in conserving and restoring coastal water qual-
ity." Tourist-driven businesses (and what isn't a tourist-
driven business around here?) should be all over something
like this.
My baby daughter is still consuming formula, but she'll
be raised in the South, and that means that someday, she
will try an oyster. I'd stand on the beach holding hands with
a bunch of strangers if I thought it would ensure that for
her. Whether she likes it is her business, but if she takes af-
ter me, it will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship....

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY MARCH 10 ,2011


Editor,
I need help. I find myself unable to muster any empathy
whatsoever for the suffering teachers union in Wisconsin. I
understand these unfortunate "workers" are barely scrap-
ing by on an average annual salary of $52,000 and a paltry
$25,000 in additional benefits. My sympathies instead of
going to the persecuted union workers seem to gravitate
toward the non- union workers in Wisconsin who work for
an average annual income of $37,398 and no pension or
benefits. In addition to their superior income, the Wiscon-
sin teacher gets 13 to 14 weeks off per year. Everyone else,
well....not so much.
The Wisconsin teachers carry signs that have such noble
slogans as "I put your children first" or "I'm here to fight
for my students." OK, so you're telling me it's all about the
students? I would say that the preponderance of evidence
points to the contrary. First off, the teachers are dragging
the students along to their demonstrations. Demonstra-
tions routinely turn violent, so is jeopardizing student
safety "putting them first"? It would also make sense to me
that if you're going to drag the kids along, at least "educate"
them as to what they're demonstrating for. Every student
interviewed seems as clueless of the issues on this matter
as they are to the fundamentals of economics. Finally, if the
teachers are primarily concerned with students, why are
our students ranked so low among other "civilized" nations?
We do rank at the top in the amount of money spent on
education; we just don't get much bang for our'buck. I think
former president of the "American Federation of Teachers"
Albert Shanker succinctly stated the priority of the teach-
er's union. When asked about his concern for students vis a
vis the teachers. His reply was, "When school children start
paying union dues, that's when I'll start representing the
interest of school children."
Can someone help me comprehend how in a country
whose citizens claim personal freedom as our "inalienable
right," any worker would relinquish his right to negotiate
his own wages? Instead he turns to socialism and "collec-
tive bargaining," which normally devolves into legalized


extortion. What reasoning could motivate the proven, high-
ly competent teacher to allow his value to be assessed as
worth no more or no less, than the incompetent teacher?
His admission in doing so is that, although my colleague
is incompetent, he deserves the same compensation as I.
Teachers are not all equal in competency. Every year, here
in Walton County, concerned parents assail school princi-
pals with demands of which teachers they desire for their
child in the coming year. If all teachers were equal this
would not be necessary. And once again, if it's the students
that are the primary concern of teachers unions, why then,
if cuts in the numbers of teachers have to be made, are the
cuts based on seniority instead of competency? "Collective
Bargaining" allows the non-producer to ride the coattails of
the producer.

Bob Chanin, who serves as the senior counsel for the
NEA, said; "What unions do first and foremost is represent
their members." In other words, "it's all about me." Wis-
consin union workers are what Lenin referred to as "useful
idiots." They march at the whim of their bosses, without
applying any critical thinking as to the effects their efforts
have on the rest of the community. When asked to consider
that the country is bankrupt and millions are not as for-
tunate as they, in that they have no job at all, the union
implies that if only a few more million were laid off union
demands could be met. Further evidence of the myopic
demands of unions is the support they receive from other
unions, firefighters, steel workers etc. They demonstrate
more allegiance towards the union than for their own fami-
lies. Their quest for higher wages and sweeter benefits has
blinded them to the reality, that in doing so they condemn
not only your children, but their own as well to a mediocre
education. One final thought; if our president believes so
strongly in the teachers union, why does he send his own
children to private school?

LETES T HEEITOR


Editor:
These comments are directed to and in favor of the
clause in the proposed Walton County Certificate of Land
Use Compliance Ordinance not allowing event venues in
residential neighborhoods. That clause (7A) is the sole rea-
son we are interested in the Ordinance. "Section 7. Short
Term Rentals: A. It shall be a violation of this ordinance
to advertise or operate a "Short Term Rental,"located in a
residential land use category, for use as a venue for wed-
dings, corporate meetings and retreats, reunions and
similar functions."
THIS ORDINANCE DOES NOT IMPACT OWNER OC-
CUPIED DWELLINGS FOR EVENTS. The argument that
this ordinance bans beach weddings is obviously a segue to
mislead. Nowhere does it ban wedding ceremonies; on the
beach or anywhere else. Only the improper use of residen-
tial property for the events that follow the wedding ceremo-
ny are regulated. There is much clamor about putting the
wedding Industry out of business. It is in fact an industry
and should operate like one. Not in residential neighbor-
hoods but in facilities appropriate for the use. To say that
there are none in south Walton is also obviously misleading
and false. Use of these commercial venues within residen-
tial neighborhoods actually steals business from appropri-
ate commercial venues. With some creativity there could be
many more in the underused facilities now in existence. In
addition, if the wedding Industry brings as much revenue
as claimed there should be plenty to establish even addi-
tional appropriate facilities.
For the past three years the land use code has been vio-
lated by large properties locating in residential neighbor-
hoods, operating as commercial venues for events such as
bachelor parties followed by rehearsal dinners followed by
receptions disrupting the neighborhoods with noise, park-
ing issues, confrontations etc. Health and safety issues re-
sult. This is not a situation where someone wants to have


Editor:
On the afternoon of March 2 members of the Flat Creek
(Alabama) Volunteer Fire Department were dispatched to a
reported woods fire on Geneva County Road 1. Upon arrival
of our first in equipment it was obvious that more help was
going to be needed to successfully control this fire. That was
when the incident commander made the call for mutual aid
from the Samson VFD, the Alabama Forestry Commission
and the.Walton County Fire District 3 (Darlington-Gaskin)
fire department. During the course of this incident, the fire
had spread to a abandoned nearby mobile home. Crews
were diverted from the woods fire to the structure fire. Be-
cause this was originally a woods fire, another alarm was
requested for engines and breathing air supplies. As crews
moved into an attack mode for fighting the structure fire
an amazing thing happened. Three very different fire de-
partments came together and worked seamlessly to control
the fire in this structure. As a fire chief we spend countless


wedding celebrations for daughters, nieces, etc. This is
events every week during the best weather. There seems to
be some support for these activities as noted in some pub-
lications. I have yet to hear any support from anyone who
lives adjacent or even nearby. A bit of personal experience
goes a long way. Why should these venues be allowed to
damage neighborhoods?
Most recently the Code Enforcement Board of Walton
County cited a property for such activity in Seagrove Beach
ordering them to stop. The case was reviewed by the Appel-
late Court and the stop order upheld.
The proposed Land Use Ordinance supports Walton
County's Land Use Plan, the intent of the county to be
known for its quiet neighborhoods, the recent citing by the
Code Enforcement Board and the Appellate Court support
of the citation.
Several years ago Walton County decided to adopt a Land
Use Plan for the county. It seems it was part of the plan to
set up residential areas in. both the north and south por-
tions of the county. In support of this on the Home Page of
Walton County on the Internet it states "Walton County,
Florida is a vibrant community known for its quiet neigh-
borhoods and bustling business districts." The intent is
clear.
We have had a house in this area for 20 years and have
lived here full time for almost half that. Our street contains
a number of short term rentals. In the 20 years we have
only had one incident of problems, with some unsupervised
out of control underage kids, until three years ago when
an event house moved into a large existing single family
home.
We need to move forward and solve this problem. It is
time for some positive action.
Thanks for listening.
Paul and Sandy Luchtefeld

hours training our members how to fight fire, manage air
supplies and countless other objectives, but the two things
you can't teach are professionalism and a willingness to
work together with other departments. Every firefighter
working this structure fire displayed the highest level of
both of these qualities during this incident. I would like
to commend every member of the Samson VFD, the Wal-
ton County/Darlington-Gaskin FD, the Alabama Forestry
Commission and the Flat Creek VFD for their work on
these fires. What I saw on this scene proved to me again
what I already knew. Volunteer firefighters are just as pro-
fessional in their jobs as are paid firefighters. Some might
argue even more so. These communities and cities should
be proud of the men and women who make up their fire
departments. I know I am.

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


Pampered pets flock to Amy's


By LEAH STRATMANN
For as long as she can re-
member, Amy Manning has
felt a special affinity to ani-
mals. At the age of 12, she
began working with veteri-
narian Dr. Kelly Haeusler
in Destin, where she worked
until she was a senior in
high school. "I was lucky
to be trained by some good
people and I always wanted
to be a vet, but I wasn't that
good in school. I realized I
wouldn't be able to make it,"
Manning said.
Turning lemons into
lemonade instead, Man-
ning started her own bath-
ing and grooming business
three years ago and called
it Amy's Pampered Pets af-
ter more years of working at
vet clinics. "Since I couldn't
be a vet, I realized groom-
ing dogs was everything I
wanted it to be. Not many
people can say they do a job
they absolutely love and I
can say that."
Judging by the number of
dogs either awaiting pickup
or pampering, the business
is thriving. When she first
started, Manning hit on a
way to advertise her busi-
ness for a small investment.
She placed dog treats in
plastic bags and distributed


them to all the drive-through
banks in DeFuniak Springs.
The plastic bags had the
name and phone number
of her business printed on
them and many have found
a way to her door from those
small plastic bags.
"I discovered the goodie at
the bank through research
in how to do different kinds
of advertising on a budget.
It was in one of my books.
We started out at all the
banks but we were getting
so busy we were in danger of
over extending our capabil-
ity. Now we just do Regions
Bank, which is where we
have our business account. I
have some business cards at
Beef O'Brady's and Mclain's
but we really don't have
an advertising budget. My
mother and I laugh about
that when we go over the
books," she said.
The location of the busi-
ness at 9B West Orange has
generally been a dog groom-
ing business. Manning said
when she took over the
space, she was fortunate be-
cause her husband is a car-
penter and was able to do
everything she needed. "We
put in a permanent tub and
other things. My mom gave
me the kick in the pants to


start the business, but I was
frightened about the busi-
ness end of it, but my mom
does all my bookwork and so
forth, so I can do what I love
to do."
In addition to groom-
ing and bathing, customers
can shop in the small retail
space inside the store fea-
turing collars, leashes, dog
bowls and so forth. The at-
mosphere in the shop is so
mellow, there is even a small
cat who lives there full time,
happily interacting with the
dogs who come through the
door. June, a found cat, nuz-
zles the other animals and
acts as the night watchman
to earn her keep.
'We do grooming for any
sized dogs. We do bathing
and nail trimming and ex-
pressing on anal glands if
needed. I find that through
years of experience you get
to know the animal by how
they stand and look at you.
You need to make them feel
comfortable and take it slow.
If you try to manhandle a
dog you will scare them,"
she noted.
"I've been very very lucky.
I've never had a bad experi-
ence other than a couple of
nasty scratches. You just


have to know how to read a
dog."
On the subject of nail
trimming, a source of con-
cern for many animal own-
ers, Manning says. "You
need to get their minds off
of it. Talking to them and
distracting them while the
nails are being cut. I feel
very confident that I know
what I'm doing and I do it
very fast. The dogs know
when you are nervous and
they get that feeling from
you, which is why so many
dog owners have trouble
with this."
Manning says she is cur-
rently booking briskly and
making appointments works
for her. "I didn't know what
kind of clientele I would
have in DeFuniak Springs.
There are so many dogs
here and the surrounding
areas. The amount of people
with animals is amazing. I
also didn't want to keep a
dog all day so with the ap-
pointments I can keep the
timing and myself on track.
I always knew there is not
any way to get all the dogs
done in one day. We do keep
some dogs during the day
if the owner works and we
don't charge extra for that.

It's like day school. I try to
keep my prices competitive
with other locations in the
area and so far it is work-
ing," she said.

located at 9B West Orange


Avenue, DeFuniak Springs,

WZEP Radiothon raises

funds for Special Olympians


By JEFFREY POWELL

Over the past couple of
years economic realities
have impacted nearly every
sector of the community.
This is particularly true of
charitable organizations
such as the Special Olym-
pics. On Saturday morning,
March 5, WZEP radio held
a radiothon in hope of eas-
ing the financial burden of
that organization. The ef-
fort began at 6 a.m. and con-
tinued until noon and the
phones were ringing much
of the time. Longtime Spe-
cial Olympics volunteer Pat
King was on hand to handle
the calls. King has worked
with the group for many
years as a coach and is dedi-
cated to the organization.
"I have a daughter in
Special Olympics and that is
what got me started. I really
enjoy anytime I get to spend
around the Special Olym-
pians, they are my people,"
King said proudly. "The
money that is raised today
will help the athletes go
to their games. It will help
us go to Crestview and the
summer games in Orlando."
Two Walton County Spe-
cial Olympians have their
sights set even higher than
Crestview and Orlando,
as they will be traveling to
Greece later this year. Both
Patty Douglass and Greg
Floyd are slated to travel
to the International games
in the home country of the
Olympics. They were both
representing the organiza-
tion at the radio station on
Saturday morning.
"The thought of getting
to go to Greece is a thrill,"
Floyd said with a smile.
"Competing makes me feel
good. I am also doing this

Scope of work both within
and across districts.
To achieve one of the
District's goals which is to
double the percentage of in-
coming freshman who ulti-
mately graduate from high
school, go on to college and
achieve at least one year of
college credit, the Walton
County School District has
established a new pariner-
ship with the College Board.
WCSD will establish a sig-
nificant core of Advanced
Placement (AP)-trained
teachers in each high school,
to better recruit students
into AP courses and to es-
tablish a college-going tra-
dition in all students and
subgroups beginning with
an increased focus upon in-
creasing the rigor of middle
school courses. In addition,
WCSD is committed to ex-
panding and enhancing ar-
ticulation agreements with
post-secondary educational
institutions, resulting in
greater opportunities for
students to attain college
credit through dual enroll-
ment and industry certifica-
tions.
Other RTTT district goals
include ensuring sufficient
technology hardware in ade-
quate lab settings to provide
timely, online formative as-
sessments that will give our
teachers the tools they need
to deliver prescriptive dif-
ferentiated instruction that
maximizes student perfor-
mance. Meeting this goal
will also assure us of being
able to comply with all on-


line testing requirements as
they are added to the state
assessment system.

be done and we are excited
to get started," said Ander-
son. For more information

WZEP has been hold-
ing the raiothon for over 30
years and owner Art Dees is
dedicated to the program.
"This is just the right
thing to do," said Dees. "Ed
Earl worked at the station
many years ago and he
hosted the radiothon. We

These special people show
their appreciation and see-

Mossy Head Water Works, Inc.
2010 Quality Water Report

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been, to provide to
you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection
purposes.

In 2009 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of
the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on
the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Tom Terrell, President, Mossy
Head Water Works, Inc. at (850) 892-6154. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If
you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each
month at our office building at 7 p.m.
Tips for Saving Water
* Don't over water your lawn. Only water every three to five days in the summer and 10 to 14 days in the winter.
* To prevent water loss from evaporation, don't water your lawn during the hottest part of the day or when it is windy.
* Only run the dishwasher and clothes washer when they are fully loaded.
* Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running water over it.
* When washing dishes by hand, use two basins one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
* Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and driveways.
* If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.
* Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year. Leaky toilets
can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.

Mossy Head Water Works Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2010. Data obtained before January 1, 2010, and presented in this report are from the
most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close.to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin, of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
"ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR).
The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations
of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with
their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.
Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Mossy
Head Water works is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in
plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure
by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead
in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you
can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http:#www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone
organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care
providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and
other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the Mossy Head Water Works Inc. work daily to insure that our customers are provided with the highest quality
drinking water available. We encourage all members to become actively involved in the business of your system.

GRANT POWELL


Two arrested on

methamphetamine charges


Last week, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) arrested Amber
Gayle Powell, 33, and Brian
Timothy Grant, 30, both of
DeFuniak Springs, on meth-
amphetamine drug charges.
The WCSO investigation
began after deputies re-
ceived information from the
DeFuniak Springs Police
alleging that methamphet-
amine was possibly being
manufactured at Powell's
residence located at 3045 E.
U.S. 90.


Powell granted WCSO
investigators access to her
residence and indicated that
Grant was a recent house
guest. Following suspect
interviews and a search of
Powell's residence, deputies
located hazardous chemi-
cals used to produce meth-
amphetamine.
Powell and Grant were
each charged with one count
of producing methamphet-
amine, a second-degree felo-
ny. They were booked into
the Walton County Jail.

Pets of the Week


Boston Terriers: Both
females and males are gen-
erally quiet and bark only
when necessary. Their usu-
ally sensible attitude to-
wards barking makes them
excellent choices for apart-
ment dwellers. Having been
bred as a companion dog,
they enjoy being around
people, and if properly so-
cialized, get along well with
children, the elderly, other
canines, and non-canine
pets. Some Boston Terriers
are very cuddly, while oth-
ers are more independent.
They are also highly intel-
ligent.
Huskies are good fam-
ily pets, but must have a
patient and devoted owner
who will spend lots of time
training and playing with
them. Husky owners must
make time for training and


exercising.
Labs are very loving,
kind, loyal and compassion-
ate to their master.

Find these dogs and
many more like them at

CYPRESS LUMBER SAWN ON-SITE at Cypress Cattle and Produce.


.-tf


DAILY PRODUCE on display at Cypress Cattle and Produce. CATTLE AT PASTURE FEEDER.



Freeport's new produce entrepreneur


Story and photos by
BEN GRAFTON
Recently a new business,
Cypress Cattle and Produce,
opened a store on U.S. 331
just south of its intersec-
tion with SR-20 in Freeport.
This store which offers fresh
produce for sale is operated
by the Langford family from
a farm that spreads across
Walton and Holmes County
lines a few miles southeast
of Ponce de Leon. An inter-
view with Luke Langford at
the farm, with purple mar-
tins overhead, brought out
interesting background on
this venture.
At the present time the
Cypress Cattle and Pro-
duce Farm consists of about
1,100 acres, of which about
300 are in Walton County
and the balance in Holmes.
The original family farmer
was Langford's great-great
uncle who started the farm
in the late 1920s and, since
he had no children, he willed
the farm to Langford's
grandfather. He grew crops
of sugar cane and red pota-
toes, the very basic carbohy-
drates and starches of that
era, which were shipped
by rail to market. Over the
years those crops were sup-
planted by ventures into
beef and dairy cattle opera-
tions. Now, Langford says,
because of market condi-
tions, the farm has become
a very diverse operation and
although there are a lot of
things going on, it pays off
in a lot of ways.
A large part of the acre-
age is taken up by a group
of cypress ponds, the larg-
est of which at 32 acres in
dry periods, is Ice Pond.
The ponds supply an abun-
dant self-regenerating sup-
ply of raw material for the
farm's sawmill where the
trees are sawn to yield air
dried cypress lumber. A
part of the output goes into
construction of children's
play houses, garden plant-
ers and similar rustic items
for home and farm use. The
balance of the output is sold
direct to wood workers and
local people.
The utility of the ponds
doesn't end with the lumber
operation. The ponds are full
of fish and fishermen can go
there to catch their limit.
Crappie are doing well right
now. The fee is $15 per boat
for a half day or $20 for the
full day.
The Langfords still a run
cow-calf operation for beef
and a substantial amount
of acreage is devoted to pas-
tureland, but the priority
given to beef is not what it
once was.
For the past several years
attention has turned to pro-
duce growth and this effort
is still evolving. Langford


has tried supplying Wal-
mart, the produce brokers
in Atlanta and Birming-
ham, farmers markets and
the grocery stores along the
Gulf Coast from Pensacola to
Panama City but there are
two main problems. First,
the metro brokers turn first
to nearby suppliers with
whom they have existing
ties. Second, the grocery
stores tend to buy produce
stock only one or two days
a week but produce on the
farm has to be harvested
every other day, so schedul-
ing to meet the store buying
pattern with the harvest
demand becomes almost un-
manageable.
The scheduling problem
has been one of the driv-
ing forces to open the pro-
duce store in Freeport. The
Langfords can maintain a


reasonable harvest schedule
at the farm while keeping
fresh produce on the shelves
at the store.
At the store, farm-pro-
duced broccoli and collard
greens are in season and
cabbage is coming in. Lat-
er, the farm will provide
sweet corn, tomatoes, yel-
low squash, zucchini, wa-
termelons and cantaloupes.
In addition to produce from
the farm, the store carries
other fresh vegetables, hon-
ey, preserves, relishes and
similar bottled products.
When available, there are
strawberries, freshly picked
in Plant City.
Last, but not least, the
Langfords are in the pro-
cess of establishing a peach
orchard. Langford says that
there are some products
like tomatoes that can be

picked green but will ripen
with time but this isn't so
with peaches. After picking,
peaches don't ripen further,
they just get soft. There are
3-year-old trees that will
be picked when the fruit is
properly ripened. They are


expected to yield a good crop
this year. Last year 500
more trees were put in the
ground and if the quality of
this year's crop is encourag-
ing an additional 1,500 to
2,000 tress will be planted.
Take note and stay tuned:


Langford would like cus-
tomers visiting the Freeport
store to talk to his people
there and tell them what
products they would like to
see. The Langfords will do
everything they can to meet
these requests.

Before this weekend's
downpour, the Herald/
Breeze sent out a call
for some signs of spring
from our readers and
friends on Facebook.
They took up the chal-
'lenge, along with some
resourceful garden-
ers from the Choctaw
-Hemerocallis Society,
who were busy getting
the flower beds along-
side the train depot


ready for future plant-
ing. No matter whether
you were sneezing or
wheezing from the pol-
len, the blooms make
for happy bees and a
beautiful sight for those
in and around Walton
.County.

Accuweather.com is
reporting the possibili-
ty of dryer than normal
spring in the South.
Gardeners and flower
lovers may have to be


more inventive and
start looking .for the
plans to put together
homemade rain barrels
to help keep their gar-
dens in the grow. Plans
for those can be found
at ehow.com. Simply in-
put 'rain barrel' in the
search engine to find
plans on how to build
your own and save on
your water bill this
year. Your plants and
your wallet will thank
you.

Northwest Florida Ballet


takes the stage for Cinderella


The Northwest Florida
Ballet (NFB) returns to
the Mattie Kelly Fine and
Performing Arts Center at
Northwest Florida State
College's Niceville campus
with their production of
Cinderella on April 2 and 3.
The Northwest Florida
Ballet is delighted to bring
the world's most beloved
fairy tale to life with its ren-
dition of Cinderella, a clas-
sical ballet in three acts.
Featuring the acclaimed
choreography of NFB Artis-
tic Director Todd Eric Allen
and the charming music of
Serge Prokofiev, this beau-
tiful and timeless classic
brings to life a cavalcade
of enchanting characters,
brilliant dancing, vibrant
costumes and a magical set
sure to hold you under its
spell.
Cinderella is arguably
the most familiar and be-


loved fairy tale the world
has ever known. Dating
back to at least the ninth
century A.D. when Chinese
folk tales praised the vir-
tue and loveliness of women
with tiny feet, Cinderella's
tale has taken on many
forms in many different cul-
tures. The "Cinderella" most
Americans find familiar, not
counting Walt Disney's ani-
mated classic film, is based
on the fairy tale by Charles
Perrault.
Katia Garza, principal
dancer with Orlando Bal-
let, beautifully portrays the
role of Cinderella and inter-
national guest artist Israel
Rodriguez performs the role
of Cinderella's handsome
prince. To get to her prince,
Cinderella has to get past
her cruel Stepsisters, hi-
lariously performed by NFB
Artistic Director Todd Eric
Allen and NFB soloist Jerod
Zerbe. Kelly Murdock will


play the part of the conniv-
ing Wicked Stepmother and
Jeff Prescott will portray
Cinderella's overwhelmed
Father.
Also featured in this
year's production will be
NFB soloist Lauren Hamil-
ton as the Fairy Godmother
and international guest art-
ist David Goud as the comi-
cal Jester. The roles of the
Fairies of the Seasons will
be played by NFB company
dancers Haruka Okubo,
Katarina Bennicoff Yundt,


Darby Hooton and Key Key
Williams.
Performances will be
Saturday, April 2 at 7:30
p.m. (sponsored by Whitney
Bank) and Sunday, April 3
at 2:30 p.m. (sponsored by
Waste Management). Tick-
et prices for Cinderella are
$25 for adults and $12.50
for children 12 and under.
Tickets can be purchased
online at www.nfballet.org
or by calling the Northwest
Florida Ballet office at (850)
664-7787.

THE FLORIDA WATERWAYS DANCE PROJECT WAS, according to NWFSC dance professor Joe Taylor, "a way to
bring recognition to the lakes and stream that bring life to all Floridians as well as a way to highlight the arts and their
importance in everyone's life."

and Amon pays composed

St. Agatha's Concert


Could it be Spring al-
ready, was that a songbird,
or was that a flute? On
Sunday, April 3 at 3 p.m.,
the answer will definitely be
"flute." Actually the entire
flute family, including pic-
colo, concert flute, alto flute,
and bass flute. The Lake-
side Concert Series at St.
Agatha's Episcopal Church
presents "Flutes Furioso"
of Northwest Florida State
College (NWFSC).
The flute ensemble
"Flutes Furioso" was found-
ed in January of 1995 by di-
rector Robin Home, a well-
known Fort Walton Beach
flutist, performer, teacher
and faculty member of
NWFSC. The group is made


op of local flutists, includ-
ing both advanced students
and professional musicians.
They enjoy performing both
popular arrangements and
original works for flute
choir. They also play several
pieces composed specifically
for this group.
Admission to the concert
is free, though a collection
is taken to be used only for
the support of the series. A
reception will be held imme-
diately following the perfor-
mance to provide the audi-
ence an opportunity to meet
the artists. The program, in-
cluding a brief intermission,
will run about one hour. All
are invited to enjoy the mu-
sic and the reception.

Dear Auntie Em,

Sometime I get so de-
pressed when I look online,
or in the paper or on TV be-
cause I see all of the animals
that do not have a home.
Why do we have so many?
I feel bad for them, being
on doggie death row. There
never seems to be enough
families to go around. What
can an average person do to
help?

Dogged by unwanted pets in
Walton

Dear Dogged,

There is lots you can do,
although, I am afraid you
cannot save them all. Pet
overpopulation, coupled
with unrealistic owner ex-
pectations and sometimes
circumstance can lead to
overwhelmed shelters in our
area.
Pets being spayed or neu-
tered, along with families
adopting shelter animals
instead of breeder animals,
can help. Mixed breeds of-
ten provided the same level
of love and companionship
that a purebred animal
does.
You can also volunteer


your time at local shelters,
donate unwanted blankets
or help raise funds for the
shelters. Local restaurants
also have dine-for- the-dogs
specials where part of your
bill goes to the shelter to
help with cost.
Don't forget that there
are lots of cats and other an-
imals out there also needing
a home. Check with Alaqua
or the Walton County shel-
ter (You can find an ad for
the Walton Shelter in this
edition) and see what they
need most. Thanks for writ-
ing and for caring. God
bless.

as commander of the Coast
Guard Group Cape Cod in
Chatham, Mass., George
was instrumental in defus-
ing a possible international
incident when he boarded
a Russian fishing trawler
encroaching U.S. territorial
waters at the request of the
State Department. George
successfully convinced the
Russian captain to turn his
fleet away from the U.S.
coast.
As a writer, he was
strongly influenced by Hen-
ry Beston, family friend,
and author of The Outer-
most House. Henry Beston
inspired him with his intel-
ligence and his descriptive
writing talent. George's first
success as a writer came as
a junior in high school, at
the age of 15, when he won
a prize for his essay "The
Commercialization of Cape
Cod." While still on active
duty, he wrote articles for
several Cape Cod newspa-
pers, including a weekly
copy for The Chatham Shop-
per's News. After retire-
ment, while living in Mon-
son, Maine, he wrote special
articles for four Maine news-
papers. Then, after moving
to DeFuniak Springs, Fla.,
he was credited with arti-
cles for The National Fish-
erman, The World War Two
Times, and The Log, the of-
ficial magazine of the U.S.
Lighthouse Society. Also, for
several years he conducted
and wrote numerous inter-
views for the public affairs
offices at Tyndall Air Force
Base, Panama City and for
Hurlburt Field, Fort Walton
Beach, Fla. The culmina-
tion of George's writing ca-
reer came in 2007 with the
publication of Life Aboard
a Coast Guard Lightship,
his chronicle of the cease-
less dangers and constant
tedium experienced by men
living closely together at
sea for lengthy periods of
time, confined to the length
and breadth of their ship,
anchored in one location.
It describes how differing
personalities entwined, how
they reacted to the often mo-
notonous routine, the pierc-
ing, emanations of a fog sig-
nal, and perils from storms
and passing vessels.
George is survived by his
beloved wife Linda of De-
Funiak Springs, a daughter,
Karen Neal and her husband
David of Sandwich, Mass.;
a son, Robert Rongner and
his wife Betty of Anacortes,
Wash; two grandsons, Ste-
phen Rongner-Cook and his
wife Carrie and son Andrew
of Berwyn, Penn.; and Mi-
chael Rongner and his wife
Nancy Jo and son Malone of
Holyoke, Mass.

A memorial service will
be held on Cape Cod at a
later date. In lieu of flow-
ers, please make a donation
to the Coast Guard Heritage
Museum, 3353 Main Street
(Route 6A), PO Box 161,
Barnstable, MA 02630.


George E. Rongner, 92,
passed away peacefully
on the morning of Feb. 15,
2011, in DeFuniak Springs,
Fla. Born on Dec. 20, 1918,
to Yngve and Selma Rongn-
er in Orleans, Mass., George
spent his early years in
Eastham, Mass., enjoying
the natural beauty of the
sandy Atlantic coastline of-
ten in the company of his
"quasi uncle," naturalist au-
thor Henry Beston and his
wife, fellow writer Elizabeth
Coatsworth. After gradua-
tion from high school at the
age of 16, he worked at odd
jobs until, at age 19, he was
able to enlist in the U.S.
Coast Guard. His father,
Yngve Rongner, had pre-
ceded him in service to his
country with the U.S. Ma-
rines during World War II,
eventually retiring after 24
years as a chief boatswain's
mate in the U.S. Coast
Guard.
George enlisted at the
Chatham Coast Guard Sta-
tion (Mass.) and then served
at Cuttyhunk, Monomoy
Point and Nauset Coast
Guard stations. This duty
was interrupted by World
War II, when he served with
the Navy aboard the U.S.S.
American Legion and par-
ticipated in the first wave
in the invasion of Guadal-
canal in the South Pacific.
For his actions during that
battle George was awarded
the bronze star. Later he
served at the Coast Guard
Academy as a small boat
instructor, at Fire Island
Station in New York, and
then as officer in charge of
Race Point Station, Provinc-
etown, Mass. As a warrant
officer, then a chief war-
rant officer, he was officer
in charge of the Buzzards
Lightship, executive officer
of Base Woods Hole, Mass.,
commanding officer of the
Coast Guard Cutter White
Sage in Woods Hole, a brief
stint at Engineering Officer
Group New Orleans, com-
manding officer of the Coast
Guard Cutter White Alder
based in New Orleans, Com-
mander Coast Guard Group

erations officer at Southwest
Harbor, Maine, where he

vice in 1970. While serving

Servanthood


The word "servanthood"
is not recognized by my
computer's word processing
program. Whenever I type
the word it shows up with
little red underline marks
and a half-dozen other sug-
gested words to put in its
place. I don't think we rec-
ognize "servanthood" either.
It's certainly not visible in
the world in which we live;
a world of smear campaigns,
scraping and fighting to get
to the top of the heap; bro-
ken promises and broken
deals, cheating and killing
- and for what? Just to get
ahead. Just to be a step in
front of the next guy; just to
put our hands on something
- money, honor, prestige,
power before someone else
can get their hands on it. So,
no, we don't recognize ser-


vanthood.
Paul uses Jesus to show
us what servanthood is,
and he does it with what
is probably his best and
highest words he ever put
to paper about Jesus. The
passage is found in the New
Testament book of Philippi-
ans. Paul writes: "Think of
yourselves the way Christ
Jesus thought of himself."
Or as the old King James
Version puts it: "Let this
mind be in you, which was
also in Christ Jesus." How
did Jesus think of himself;
what was his mind? Paul
answers, "He [Jesus] gave
up his divine privileges and
he took the humble position
of a slave." In every strand
of the New Testament, the
followers of Jesus are called
to imitate him in one vital

St Agatha's


The season of Lent is cele-
brated in the Catholic, Epis-
copal, Lutheran, Methodist
and Presbyterian churches.
This is a penitential sea-
son that provides every
Christian the opportunity
for self-reflection, self-deni-
al (in order to give of funds
or of oneself), prayer, re-
pentance (changing of your
mind and behavior), for re-
membering Christ's sacri-
fice and for making yourself
ready to receive, once again,
the gift of Christ's Resurrec-
tion.
Ash Wednesday (March
9, 2011) marks the begin-
ning of Lent. St. Agatha's
Episcopal Church will hold
a service at 6 p.m. that is
open to the public. In that
service the Rev. Bob Dean,
Deacon in the Diocese of the
Central Gulf Coast, will lead
prayers and impose ashes
on the foreheads of attend-
ees. These ashes are a sign
of both our mortality and
our penitence. The brief ser-
vice ends with statements of
forgiveness.
St. Agatha's traditionally
offers a Lenten discipline to
their members and to the
public. In addition to Sun-
day services (10:15 a.m.)
which are typically omitted
from the "40 days" of Lent,
the program consists of two
offerings on Wednesdays
and one on Fridays:
1. Wednesday Evening
Prayers (6 p.m.) followed by


a light supper (soup);
2. Lenten Lessons on
Wednesday Evenings (7
p.m.). The Lessons for this
year's six weeks of Lent

dimension: Service. Jesus'
prayer life, his model of
making disciples, his teach-
ing style, his forty days in
the desert, even his work
as a carpenter; these have
all been imitated by differ-
ent elements of the church.
But the greatest imitation
of Christ, and what the New
Testament communicates
as the essence of "being like
Jesus," is consistently, ser-
vanthood.
Jesus emptied himself
of his rights and set aside
all things he correctly de-
served, for the benefit of
others. This is our example.
If we refuse to serve others,
then nothing else we do will
matter. So nothing less will
do. Of course, if you start
thinking about Jesus, the
Son of God, emptying him-


self it can warp your mind.
How did this happen? How
could God empty himself
like that? It is a beautiful
mystery. It is one worth
thinking and meditating on,
how the essence and infin-
ity of God could be crammed
into the limitations of a hu-
man being. It is the wonder-
ful puzzlement of the Incar-
nation itself. But if all you
do is sit and think about it,
all you will end up with is
a headache. Paul's intent
in writing these words was
not to provide a full expla-
nation for the life of Jesus.
He wrote this to provide an
example of how to live our
lives like Jesus. It is the life
of love and humble service.
See, Paul isn't writing to tell
us what to believe. But he is
giving us instruction on how


to live, on how to treat other
people.
You can be orthodox in
all your beliefs, and still be
a jerk. You can believe the
Bible, read a bit of it every
morning, say your prayers
and give money to Haiti,
and still treat the people
around you badly. To para-
phrase Paul from another
of his famous letters, you
could speak all the languag-
es of earth and heaven, but
if you don't love others, it's
only a loud obnoxious noise.
You could understand all
the mysteries of God and
possess all knowledge, and
have faith to move moun-
tains, but without love it is
nothing. This is the mind


Ronnie McBrayer

of Christ. Now, to humbly
empty ourselves like Christ
did, does not mean we
think we are less, that we
are worse, or we are lower
than other people. It sim-
ply means we don't think
of ourselves at all. We quit
protecting our interests,
our personal ambitions, our
agendas, and our desires for
what we want. Instead, we
give ourselves over to others
in love, at whatever cost -
even death on a cross. That
is what servanthood looks
like.

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


Boys & Girls Club and SWAT learn about etiquette


Preparing young people
for future success is a com-
ponent of both the Students
Working Against Tobacco
(SWAT) program and the
Boys & Girls Club's philoso-
phy. Knowing how to pres-
ent one's self during formal
events is one factor of suc-
cess. With that in mind,
the Boys & Girls Club of
DeFuniak Springs and the
Walton County SWAT part-
nered together to introduce
Shelia Wilkerson Grimes
and her expertise on eti-
quette to a joint meeting of
their members.
Grimes, who conducts an
after-school etiquette class
at Pryor Middle School in
Okaloosa County, shared
a brief overview of proper
manners with the teenag-


ers in attendance. Grimes
also explained how man-
ners and the way a young
person conducts himself or
herself when speaking with
adults can positively or neg-
atively impact his or her fu-
ture opportunities. Because
a first opinion is formed in
the first 30 seconds, a young
person needs to practice
proper etiquette at all times.
After all, someone may be
observing them at any time
and developing that pivotal
first impression.
After the interactive pre-
sentation, SWAT and Boys
& Girls Club members had
a chance to practice formal
manners as they conversed
with Grimes and staff mem-
bers from the Boys and Girls
Club and SWAT.

Walton Softball Defeats PDL 7-4


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves soft-
ball team got home runs
from Chelsea Hurley and
Treasa Herndon in the top
of the first inning to build a
3-0 lead that the team would
not relinquish on the way to
a 7-4 win in Ponce de Leon.
Walton's Camille Cosson
pitched a complete game in
picking up the win while
also providing the Braves
with three hits in the contest
as the Braves improved to
3-3 on the year with the vic-
tory. After Cosson doubled


in the first inning, Hurley
smacked a two-run shot to
left field for a 2-0 lead. Hur-
ley followed with an identi-
cal blast to push the lead to
3-0.
PDL loaded the bases in
the bottom of the first in-
ning but plated only one run
on an RBI groundout by Hil-
lary Harper to cut the lead
to 3-1.
Walton added another
run in the top of the third
inning as Cosson led off
with a double and eventu-
ally scored to up the advan-


tage to 4-1.
The Pirates got right back
into the game with a pair of
runs in the bottom of the
third inning as Jaicee Mayo
doubled followed by a pair of
singles by Ashley and Hil-
lary Harper to cut the lead
to 4-3.
Walton made the lead 5-3
with a run in the top of the
fifth inning as Herndon was
hit by a pitch and eventu-
ally came around to score
with the help of an error and
a single by Kristian Ealum.
The Braves scored twice in


Paxton devastates Pensacola

Christian 10-0 in five innings


By REID TUCKER
Josh McLaney and Zach
Forehand threw a combined
no-hitter as the Bobcats
rolled on an overwhelming
10-0 victory over visiting
Pensacola Christian.
McLaney was a terror
from the mound through-
out his four-inning stretch,
chalking up six strikeouts
and allowing just one walk.
Forehand (who hadn't had
much more than a day to
get ready for the game after
a year off the field) spelled
McLaney at the top of the
fifth and walked his first two
batters but then summarily
struck out three in a row to
bring the game to a close.
However, the Bobcats
also needed to put the bat
on the ball-in order to walk
away with a five-inning win
and get hits they did: 11
to be exact. What's more,
seven different members of
the team scored a run, with
Forehand, A.J. Neale and
Mason McCormick notching
two apiece.
Paxton coach Jeff Brad-
ley said a night like the one
the Bobcats had on Friday,
March 4, is pretty astound-
ing, considering that the
team (which basically con-
sists of the starting basket-
ball lineup plus three oth-
ers) has had just a few days
to recoup and get some prac-
tice time in. Also, Paxton
beat East Hill 8-2 the night
before but only had three
hits. Furthermore, the ma-
jority of this year's infield
and the entire outfield are
up-and-comers, as Paxton
graduated several of its best
players last season.
"We just came out here
today and really squared
it up well," Bradley said. "I
was very pleased with our
plate appearances. This is
what I was hoping for after
you lose seven of your top 10
guys from last year."
Paxton "squared up"
early after McLaney's fast-
ball wrecked the first three
Pensacola Christian batters
and scored three runs by
the time the second inning
rolled around. The Bobcats
added a further four runs by
the top of the third and ex-
tended the lead to 9-0 by the
start of the fourth. Paxton
drew blood for the final time
in the last at-bat of the bot-
tom of the fourth inning, as
Bubba Infinger (who Brad-
ley said hadn't seen the field
in two years after recovering
from surgery) scored on a
sacrifice force-out from team
mate Forrest Wibbing.
For all that, Pensacola
Christian (which finished
just 4-14 last season) had
some good looks late in the
game. In the top of the fifth
inning, when McLaney was
retired from the mound and
exchanged for Forehand,
Tyler Gellos stole his way
to second, capitalizing on a
Paxton fielding error at sec-
ond base. When Forehand
walked Trevor Shoemaker
it looked as though the War-


riors might be able to put
something together, but
the bloodletting of the past
several innings wore them
down and Forehand struck
out the next three batters to
give Paxton the 10-nothing
victory.
Though Forehand threw
against only five batters in
the game against Pensa-
cola Christian, the junior
pitcher, who was the day
before cleared to play for the
Bobcats after spending the
first half of the school year
at Walton High, still has the
goods to keep Paxton at the
top of the district pile. For
starters, Forehand has not
only a game-winning pres-
ence on the mound, he's
also a capable hitter and
can play short stop as well,
but Bradley said those at-
tributes aren't what makes
him a great player. Rather,
it's his experience that will
be most valued on a team


where the majority of play-
ers moved up from JV just
this season.
"Zach struggled until he
got his rhythm there but
that's the first time he's
been on the mound all year
because he wasn't with us
for a while," Bradley said.
"He's a great player for us.
He's been playing for us
since sixth grade and start-
ed on varsity when he was a
seventh grader. He's a lead-
er for us after being a part of
our program over all these
years. It's a confidence boost
for the young kids to have
him back as a big leader. It's
been great to see him back
out here with us."
The Bobcats will face dis-
trict opponents on three oc-
casions this week, as they
went on the road against
Rocky Bayou on Tuesday
and will play in a double
header at home against Pop-
lar Springs on Friday.


the sixth inning with two
outs as Cosson's single was
followed by doubles by Hern-
don and Hurley to increase
the lead to 7-3. The Pirates
plated a run in the bottom
of the sixth inning as Holly
Parsons tripled in Desiree
Rushing for the final margin
of 7-4.
Marissa Powell took the
loss for the Pirates as she
pitched a complete game for
the home team. Walton was
able to pound out 12 hits in
the contest while the Pirates
had 10. Cosson struck out
six batters while allowing
only one walk with Powell
striking out five Walton bat-
ters and walking only two.
Team Notes: PDL earned
their first win with a 10-3
victory at Laurel Hill on Fri-
day night. Walton has a light
week ahead with a March 8
game hosting Panama City
Arnold before traveling to
Pensacola Catholic for a
March 15 contest.

Central High School used
a pair of Paxton errors in
the seventh inning to build
an 8-2 lead before holding
off a furious Bobcats rally as
the Jaguars captured an 8-5
victory in a District 1, Class
A contest.
Central held a 1-0 lead off
of a solo home run by short-
stop Taylor Mitchell in the
top of the first inning until
Paxton rallied for two runs
in the bottom of the third.
The Bobcats scored two
runs with the help of four
singles in the inning as Leah
Infinger and Jessie Oglesby
provided key RBIs for Pax-
ton to take the lead.
Central responded im-
mediately as they touched
reliever Kappi Stewart for
three runs in the top of the
fourth inning with three
singles, a walk and a pair of
groundouts helping the vis-
iting team to a 4-2 lead.
The contest held at 4-2
until the seventh inning
when Paxton was undone
by some bad luck and poor
fielding. Central used three
errors with a walk and a
single to score four runs as a
misplay at shortstop as well
as a throwing error emptied
the bases for an 8-2 lead.
Paxton rallied for three
runs in their last at-bat as
four singles and an error cut


the lead to 8-5 before Shelby
Oglesby flied out to center to
end the game.
Leah Infinger, who
pitched the first three in-
nings of the game, had three
hits in the contest while Bri-
anna Owens, Chrissy Currid
and Jessie Oglesby had two
hits apiece.
Paxton picked up their


first win of the year on
Thursday with an 18-0 beat-
ing of East Hill. Owens pro-
vided five hits in that con-
test as the Bobcats earned
a non-district win to even
their record at 1-1.
The Bobcats will travel
to Poplar Springs to play
a doubleheader at noon on
Friday.

Freeport Softball Grabs First Win


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
softball team scored seven
runs in the fourth inning to
propel the squad to a 13-7
win over South Walton High
School on Friday night.
Freeport, which had lost the
first nine games of the regu-
lar season, pounded out 14
hits as Taylor Taunton had
four of them plus a sacrifice
fly in driving in four in the
contest.
Taunton hit a two-run
home run in the top of the
first inning to give the Bull-
dogs the lead but South
Walton struck back for two
runs in the bottom half of
the frame to tie the score
as the Seahawks Allison
Stroop had an RBI single to
help the rally.
The Seahawks took the
lead at 3-2 in the bottom of
the second inning as Lacy
Littlefield drove in a run
with a single for the home
team's first lead of the
night.
Freeport tied the game
again in the top of the third


as Amanda Bates stroked an
RBI double to knot the con-
test. The Seahawks jumped
ahead 4-3 in the bottom of
the third inning as Megan
Macleod drove in the go-
ahead run with a single.
Freeport turned the game
in the top of the fourth inning
as two errors put runners on
base for the Bulldogs. Dan-
nica Mosher provided an
infield single to drive in a
run, followed by RBI singles
by Megan Seibert and Tay-
lor Taunton for a 6-4 lead.
Amanda Bates drove in two
more with a deep single and
Rani Simmons dropped in
another hit as the Bulldogs
built a 10-4 lead.
Kayla Eldridge helped
the Bulldogs add two more
runs to the scoreboard in the
top of the sixth inning as she
doubled to extend the lead to
12-4. South Walton struck
back for two runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning but
could have had more had
Freeport shortstop Dannica
Mosher not caught a line
drive and turned it into a


double play by nailing the
runner off the bag at third
base to end the comeback at
12-6.
Each team added a run in
the seventh inning but Free-
port pitcher Rani Simmons
was able to close out the
complete game for the Bull-
dogs' first win of the season.
"If it could go wrong it
has," Freeport coach Charles
Trotman said about the ear-
ly part of the season. "But
not tonight, tonight we hit
the ball over and over again
to get a big enough lead to
earn the win."
South Walton's Meagan
Ellison took the loss as she
pitched all seven innings,
for the Seahawks. The Sea-
hawks suffered hand inju-
ries to a pair of players that
caused them to have to fin-
ish the game with only eight
in the field in the seventh
inning.
South Walton fell to 3-4
with the loss in the non-dis-
trict affair. The two teams
will meet again on March 21
in Freeport at 6 p.m.

Freeport (6-2) held the
Lady Rams, defending Oka-
loosa County champs, un-
til the top of the fifth when
pitcher Jimi Watts crushed
a hit down the first base-
line to the right field fence,
earning a triple. The two
subsequent batters loaded
the bases and Bailey Rimes
scored on RBI to open the
scoring floodgates. Ruckel
(2-0) were able to run up
the score five-nothing when
Freeport elected to attempt
making a play at home plate
instead of the out at first,
an error that the Bulldogs
would not recover from.
"You can't make a mistake
like that against a team this
good," said Freeport head
coach. Joe' Padgett. "If you
do that they'll punish you
because they're a team who
puts the bat on the ball."
Padgett's estimation of
Ruckel's prowess at the
plate proved true in spite
of the scoreless introduc-
tory innings, as the visiting
club had 15 hits by the end
of the game, played Thurs-
day, March 3, compared to
Freeport's three. After hit-
ting their stride in the fate-
ful fifth inning, seven of the
Rams' hitters scored, includ-
ing Alexa Verzwyvelt and
Jacqueline Hodskins, who,
scored two runs apiece.
Pitching was good for both
sides, but Ruckel just had
more of it. Freeport's Mary
Kate Myrick, who scored the
Bulldogs' lone run in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning, had
four strikeouts and walked
just three batters. How-
ever, the Lady Rams had
two equally good pitchers
in tow: the first, Watts, had
five strikeouts and no walks
while the cleanup pitcher,
Rebecca Morrow, who came
in the game at the halfway
point, had an even more im-
pressive six strikeouts but

shortly by Taniya Robin-

Marianna kept Walton to
a four-run deficit through
the next three innings but,
at the same time, the Bull-
dogs were prevented from
running the score up in
their next at-bat. However,
all that changed in the bot-

error on an easy infield pop-

Walton's Shy Walker. That

Hospital CEO urges

involvement in

community health care


By DOTTY NIST
"Health care is everyone's
business," said Roger Hall,
president and CEO of Sa-
cred Heart Hospital on the
Emerald Coast.
Hall was the featured
speaker at the Walton Coun-
ty Chamber of Commerce's
March 2 Power of Business
Luncheon at Sandestin Re-
sort's Linkside Conference
Center.
Hall predicted changes
in health care regardless of
what happens with the re-
cent federal health care leg-
islation. He revealed that
American health care costs
now amount to 25 percent
of the national budget,i 20
percent of the state budget,
and 16 percent of individu-
als' budgets. These costs are
in excess of those in many
other countries, he noted.
"If we had a magic wand,
what would health care look
like?" he asked attendees.
He highlighted for con-
sideration Sacred Heart's
mission statement, which
pledges a commitment to
"serving all persons with
special, attention to those
who are poor and vulner-
able," and efforts to sustain
and improve "the health of
individuals and communi-
ties."
He described the hospi-
tal's partnership with nu-
merous community orga-
nizations to further these
goals.
Encouraging everyone to
get involved in building a
healthier community, Hall
commented that over 70
percent of "medical disas-
ters" could be avoided if in-


dividuals underwent proper
medical screenings and fol-
lowed an exercise program.
He urged business leaders
to make their organizations
smoke-free, as well.
"I ask you, what is a
healthy community. what
does a healthy community
look like, and will you make
a difference?" he challenged
attendees.
The Carr Riggs & Ingram
CPA firm was sponsor for
the luncheon. Deana Mul-
downey of Carr Riggs &
Ingram spoke briefly about
the impacts on the commu-
nity of last year's BP oil spill
and the assistance that the
company offers with the BP
claims process.
"Everyone, in this room
has been impacted by the
oil spill," she said, ranging
from banks to churches.
The CPA firm has a fully-
staffed BP claims depart-
ment that is assisting cli-
ents all the way from Texas
to Clearwater, Fla., Muld-
owney revealed. She added
that accounting fees related
to claims are reimbursable.
She extended an invita-
tion to the March 22 in-
formational "Power Hour"
event to be sponsored by
Carr Riggs & Ingram on the
topic of the BP claims pro-
cess and proposed method-
ology for future BP claims
processing. The seminar is
scheduled for 9-10 a.m. at
the Walton County Cham-
ber of Commerce office in
Santa Rosa Beach. There is
no charge, but registration
is required by calling the
chamber at (850) 267-0683
or sending an email to bridg-
et@waltonareachamber.com


Walton County District 5
Commissioner Cecilia Jones
announced a grand open-
ing for Mission Play Park
on Thursday, March 10 at
10 a.m. The park is located
at the end of Moll Drive in
Santa Rosa Beach, west of
CR-393 and south of U.S.
98.
As a part of Helen McCall
Park in Santa Rosa Beach,
the park offers a number
of climbing features, slides,


seesaws, and other activi-
ties for children on a safe
surface. The facility includes
a pavilion with restrooms,
sidewalks and benches un-
der large oak trees. It is lo-
cated adjacent to the popu-
lar well-used sports fields
contained in the complex
to provide recreational op-
portunities for younger chil-
dren. An adjacent 80-space
parking area is also under
construction that will serve


TDC prepares partners


for 2011 tourist season


By LEAH STRATMANN
Members of the South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC) brought
together a variety of people
in a workshop aimed at get-
ting bed tax collectors ready
for the spring and summer
season. Tracy Louthain, di-.
rector of communications,
led off the meeting with the
news that Yahoo Travel rec-
ognized Santa Rosa Beach
as one of the top 10 travel
designations in the world.
Louthain also commented
that British Petroleum (BP)
has been on the beaches to
make sure they are ready.
Justin Smith who works in
community and public rela-
tions for BP noted there are
still 35 people working on
the beach every day picking
up anything they find. "Re-
ports are there isn't much
need as not much is be-
ing found. Currently three
four-man crews traverse
the beach every day looking
for tar balls or whatever. If
something larger is found
they call in for a bigger crew.
A frequently asked question
sheet has been developed so
beach goers have resources
if something is seen. It is a
fluid operation," Smith said.
Laura Mager, also with
community outreach for BP
said, "A guy in a safety vest
is not what you want to see
on the beach, but BP is here


to address concerns as they
come up. If we get some se-
vere weather the big crews
will show up again. BP is
looking at it for a two to
three year period, based on
need. I want to see pristine
white, sand and beautiful
blue waters when I get to
the beach, just like the tour-
ists," Mager concluded.
Capt. Joe Preston of the
sheriffs department, emer-
gency management office
said, "We continue to share
the concern that the beach-
es are clean and safe. We
are trying to emphasize pre-
paredness in case we have a
hurricane. We are monitor-
ing weather reports to pro-
vide the early warnings that
may be needed."
Chief Rick Talbert of the
South Walton Fire Depart-
ment spoke about beach
safety noting there are
eight lifeguard towers at
eight beaches. From March
through September the
beach flags are monitored.
When beach conditions
change due to weather and
surf conditions, we change
the flags.
"The most important
thing to know is that we are
a resource partner with the
TDC. Whatever we can do
to help, we stand ready to
assist. For storm events we
all need to be on the same
page and lessen the perils


for everyone. We are happy
to share proactive and pre-
ventative measures with
any groups to keep people
safe. Lifeguards will be on
the beach by March 12.
"A new venture for the
district is the issuance of
permits for bonfires and we
provide information so they
do it safely and the fire de-
partment knows where the
bonfires are if they get a call
about smoke on the beach.
No bonfires are permitted
from April to October. Per-
mits can be gotten from the
district headquarters on
CR-393," he finished.
The last speaker was J.C.
Allford from the code en-
forcement informing attend-
ees on the Leave No Trace
program that seeks to less-
en the impact of items left
on the beach. "Items can be
left at the toe of the dunes
as long as the items are
neatly arranged. We prefer
if things are taken from the
beach, but arrangements
can be made." Allford not-
ed the vendors fall into the
same category as the public.
"Anything done on the beach
this year will require a per-
mit. Items cannot be locked
or stored at the access point.
Leftover items go directly to
the landfill," he said.

both the park and the sports
fields.
Mission Play Park was
conceived by a group of
moms who recognized that
the south Walton area was
missing many of the vital
recreational requirements
for a successful family com-
munity. With the increas-
ing number of children in
the area, both full time and
visitors, the county needed
more places for them to


play and for families to con-
nect. The group spoke be-
fore the Board of Commis-
sioners in April 2007 with a
request for a park.
Since that time Cathy
Potter, Jenny Dargavell, and
Rhonda Cloutier of south
Walton have worked closely
with District 5 Commission-
er Cecilia Jones to champion
the cause of getting the park
built. Using land purchased
earlier in 2007, a plan was


designed for the park, fund-
ing identified, and construc-
tion was begun. The project
has moved slowly at tiines
because of other demands
on county resources, but it
is finally complete.

The public is cordially
invited to attend this grand
opening to celebrate the
newest addition to Walton
County's recreational facili-
ties.

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

Heartworks Kids hosts second

annual pancake breakfast

March 26 to help those in need


One of the most extraor-
dinary things about the hu-
man spirit is people's desire
to help others in need. Lo-
cally, we see this happen
through many generous
organizations but there is
one group spreading acts of
kindness in a truly unique
way by encouraging chil-
dren to take the lead.

Join Heartworks Kids on
Saturday, March 26 from
8 11 a.m. for a pancake
breakfast fundraiser with
all proceeds going to help
those in need in our commu-
nity and around the world.
The breakfast will be held
at the Point Washington
United Methodist Church's
Family Life Center on CR-
395 in Point Washington.
The cost is $5 per plate.
South Walton County
resident, Lauren Romano,
is the "heart" behind Heart-
works Kids. She was so
moved by the positive impact
being made by her friend's
organization, Heartworks,


in Bernardsville, New Jer-
sey, that she decided to ex-
pand the effort. She founded
Heartworks Kids in April of
2008. Lauren has kept the
same important mission,
spreading acts of kindness,
but has empowered children
to lead the way by fostering
each child's innate ability
to give and receive from the
heart. This focus on children
isn't surprising coming from
Lauren. She is an elemen-
tary education teacher and
mother of three.
Since its inception, the
not-for-profit Heartworks
Kids has helped in many
ways, with more opportuni-
ties arising every day. The
organization has provided
school supplies and cloth-
ing to local families in need,
delivered hot meals to local
shelters, assisted families
by making sure they had
presents during the holi-
days and has helped a local
woman get the dental at-
tention she's needed since
birth. Heartworks Kids


also delivers notes of love
and encouragement, along
with handmade angels and
flowers, to individuals go-
ing through trying times in
their lives. At each meeting
the kids of Heartworks Kids
share their ideas of how they
can help those in need. Then
together, with their parents
.and other Heartworks Kids
adults, they figure out how
to turn their ideas into true
service to others.
Heartworks Kids meets
the third Friday of every
month at 3:30 p.m. at the
Coopersmith Lane Park in
Watersound. Everyone is
welcome.

Join them for breakfast
on March 26 and help sup-
port this organization and
its mission. For more in-
formation, contact Lauren
Romano at laurenromano@
earthlink.net or by phone
at (850) 543-0323, or visit
Heartworks Kids on their
website at www.Heartwork-

The Walton County Snowbirds elected a new president to
a one-year term on March 2. She is Bonnie Schwichtenberg,
well known among watercolor enthusiasts for her popular
instructional techniques in that medium. The election oc-
curred during the club's annual meeting held at the Com-
munity Church of Santa Rosa Beach. The slate of newly
elected officers, several of whom have years of experience,
included Nancy Gehrke, past president who previously
held the positions of first vice president and information
officer. Betty Cardwell, who has served as treasurer for
many years was re-elected to that post and Donna Bruder,
long-time Secretary, re-elected. New to the organization's
officers corps in addition to Bonnie Schwichtenberg, is Bill
Thomson, First Vice- President and Tom Schwichtenberg,
Second Vice President. In her remarks, outgoing President
Gehrke commended the organization's volunteers for past
work and encouraged others to join them in the club's work.
Specifically, she said, there is an opening for the chair of
two committees, registration and entertainment, and for an
Information Officer.
Jerry Barton reminded members they may store a con-
tainer, a card table, chair and similar objects at Affordable
Storage located at 114 Sugar Drive (one mile east of 30A
on Highway 98...south side). Hours of operation for storage
are 3 4 p.m. Monday, March 14, Wednesday March 23 and
March 30.
Following the business meeting, outgoing Vice President
Pat Hurley, aided by incoming President, Bonnie Schwich-
tenberg, distributed door prizes to the winners selected from
those who enrolled for the drawing, one of whom was Judy
Heilman of Wisconsin who posed for a photograph with
Pat Hurley. Another was Ivan Rott, also from Wisconsin.
Rott won two Sandcastles Restaurant and Lounge Sunday
brunch coupons, a prize he valued as worth at least $50.00,
but he's getting accustomed to winning prizes at *Walton
County Snowbird meetings. He won a bottle of wine in Feb-
ruary.
If you have been keeping up with the modern trends then
you know all about flash mobs. It appears Walton County
Snowbird line dance instructors Sarah Vaillancourt, Di-
ane Likhite, Julie Flynn, and Connie Sutherland do keep
up. Flash mob is a term coined in recent years to describe
a group of people who gather suddenly in a public place
and perform an unusual entertainment act for a brief time.
Sarah Vaillancourt assembled a flash mob of snowbird line
dancers for a lively demonstration of that dance form at the
Destin Commons on Feb. 25 reprising a flash mob held at
the Santa Rosa Mall a few weeks earlier.
When it comes to Karl Keilhau, director of the Snow-
bird Singers, the jury is in and verdict is Guilty of de-
livering an outstanding performance as conductor of the
55-member chorus. Harris Sonnenberg said as much when
he reported to the membership at the March General Meet-
ing that Keilhau's plan for the 2010-2011 season caused
some to think it too ambitious so many new songs to mas-
ter in only eight weeks! Karl's faith in the chorus, Son-
nenberg said, as demonstrated by the just concluded per-
formance, was well placed. His remarks followed another
appearance, the second of the season, of the Snowbird Sing-
ers. The program, entitled "Celebrations We Miss," wowed
the audience with Irish ballads, American standards and
patriotic American and Canadian pieces, including "Easter
Parade," "They All Call it Canada," and "America the Beau-
tiful."
Members of the Creative Writers, a Walton County Snow-
bird workshop under the joint direction of Bob Algie and
Tom Mahar, composed more than 40 original short stories
and memoirs during a two month period beginning Jan. 5.
Workshop participants recently reviewed them in search
of three standouts. The first place winner, determined by a
vote of the participants is a touching but amusing memoir
entitled Smooth Operator, authored by Rebecca Williams, a
retired high school English teacher from Hopkinsville, Ky.
Her memoir is an amusing account of her Aunt Hilda, "the
Queen of the South Central Bell switchboard" and Hilda's
husband, Raymond. The two sparred over the design of a
tombstone that will eventually grace their graves. The ac-
count allows a peek into how retirement sometimes forever
alters perspective. It is available for reading on the Walton
County Snowbird website at www.waltoncountysnowbirds.

Randy Frith, Mike Callan and Debra Bailey co-chaired
the 2011 combined President's Cup Women's Charity
Scramble on Feb. 24 at Fort Walton Beach's Pines course.
The President's Cup Tournament, a friendly contest be-
tween American and Canadian members of the Walton
County Snowbirds was founded three years ago by Mike
Serniuk, sidelined this year with a health issue. One hun-
dred and twelve American and Canadian golfers took to
the links with the goal of bringing honor to their respective
flags. The Americans displayed steely-eyed determination
to wrest victory from the tenacious Canadians who had cap-
tured the Cup during each of the first two years of its exis-
tence. The Canadian contingent motored out to the first tee
confident that its mastery of the game would ensure yet a
third consecutive victory. At the day's end, the Cup would
go to the team with the fewest slices, hooks, short putts,
and balls in the woods and water. It was close, the victor de-
termined in tenths of a point. When the summing was done,
good natured hoots from Americans and cheers from fellow

Don't look now, but they're
back. Yup, March 2011, just
20 months shy of the next
presidential election, and
the slime is already gather-
ing on top of the water. The
Republicans don't really
have a viable candidate, but
the same wannabes from
the last cycle are primed to
try it again.
Former Arkansas gover-
nor Mike Huckabee is poised
to toss his hat into the ring,
but he has learned nothing
in the last two years and he
is clueless on so many sub-
jects, it passes funny and
goes straight to tragic that
someone like him can actu-
ally mount a presidential
campaign.
Huckabee can't even get
the basic facts right about
the current president say-
ing last week that Obama
was raised in Kenya with a
Kenyan father and grandfa-
ther. Mike Huckabee says
President Barack Obama's
childhood in Kenya shaped
his worldview -- despite the
fact that Obama did not vis-
it Kenya until he was in his
20s.
I simply can't understand
why these guys cannot get
the facts right. Do they not
think the president, his
childhood, his education,
in fact his everything, have,
been scrutinized by experts?
How can these bozos persist
in getting it wrong? I don't
know about you, but I want
a president smart enough to
separate the wheat from the
chaff.
"Obama is not your stan-
dard American because he
spent four years in Indo-
nesia as a child. Most of us
grew up going to Boy Scout
meetings and, you know, our
communities were filled with
Rotary Clubs, not madras-
sas," Huckabee said. Get a
grip pal, you are wrong.
Not only is Huckabee on
the low end of the IQ scale,
he's also just plain sleazy
and a cheapskate. After
eight years as governor of
Arkansas, in November
2006, he and his wife had
the unmitigated greed to
register for home furnishing
gifts at Target and Dillard's.
Let take a look at this. He
spends eight years without
having to pay a mortgage,
property taxes, any util-
ity or phone bills, had his
gasoline and cars furnished,
and only had to dip into his
$87,352 salary for clothes
for himself and his family.
Did he not put away a few
dollars to update his kitch-
en products? Even if he sold
his house before moving into
the state house, did he also
divest himself of everything
in it?
Among the items he and
his wife felt they much have
was a $300 mixer, 24 place
settings of china, a $250
12-piece cookware set, and
expensive bed linens. It is
sick making. I think a lot
of us could limp along on a
salary in excess of $85,000
for eight years with zero


overhead and might even
be able to take care of our-
selves once the gravy train
stopped.
This week he took on
Natalie Portman, whose
shortcoming is being preg-
nant without being married.
During a radio interview,
Huckabee complained that
the actress was setting a
bad example by having her
first child out of wedlock.
"I think it gives a dis-
torted image," he said. "It's
unfortunate that we glorify
and glamorize the idea of
out-of-wedlock .. children."
Unlike movie star Portman,
he argued, "Most single
moms are very poor, unedu-
cated, can't get a job, and if

Ken Roman to teach qigong


at March 17 ECMS meeting


Ken Roman, who has been
studying and teaching the
healing arts for more than
25 years, will speak to the
Emerald Coast Meditation
Society on Thursday, March
17. He will demonstrate and
teach qigong, a form of exer-
cise similar to tai chi.
The ECMS meets at 6:30
p.m., at 480 N. CR-393, San-
ta Rosa Beach, Fla., one-half
mile north of U.S. 98. The
meeting, open to the public,
begins with 30 minutes of
silent meditation.
Roman, who is a frequent


speaker at The Center in
Fort Walton Beach, began a
meditation practice in 1973
with Dr. Deepak Chopra, a
noted instructor and author.
He also learned from Dr.
Chopra a practice called pri-
mordial sound meditation.
He teaches that and qigong
plus body energy work, mar-
tial arts, hatha yoga and tai
chi.
He holds a fourth-degree
black belt in the martial
arts and has studied tai chi
for more than 10 years. He
teaches from Pensacola to


Panama City and facilitates
workshops across the coun-
try.
On his website, kenro-
manyoga.com, he discusses
the importance of medita-
tion. "(It) is one of the most
powerful tools there is to
help us restore the harmony
within and to gain access
to our bodies' inner intelli-
gence... we rediscover the si-
lence in our mind and make
it part of our life... Medita-
tion is a journey to freedom
and self-knowledge."

Charlie Sheen may soon

show, every tabloid, every
website is featuring some-
thing about the has-been
actor who unveiled a "win-
ning" tattoo on his wrist.
While Sheen's outbursts
are outrageous, even comi-
cal, they are also a sign of
what celebrity means. Ce-
lebrity means interviewers
will sit straight-faced and
ask logical questions to a
man clearly stoned out of
his mind and pretend not
to notice. Celebrity means
making a mockery of fam-
ily and having your children
taken out of your custody.
Celebrity means watching
your bank account increase
as your behavior degrades
because a nation can't stop
Googling you. Simply, our
obsession with celebrity
means we want to see the
rise of those above us and
the fall of those below us,
but never a mirror image.

George J. Nolfi's The
Adjustment Bureau is es-
sentially a sci-fi film that
succumbs to the romantic
charm of its two stars Matt
Damon and Emily Blunt.
Special effects are kept to
a minimum, the most spec-
tacular of which being a
continuing F/X involving
intracity travel-by-door. If
you are a fan of New York
on film (I am), The Adjust-
ment Bureau will give you
your money's worth, and
knowledge of the city helps
in keeping up with the more
fantastic elements of the
story.
The premise is that hu-
manity is being supervised
by a "bureau" of operatives
who serve an unseen, all-
powerful figure called "The
Chairman." You can call
him God, or whatever you
like, but he has a plan for ev-
eryone. It's literally a plan,
reduced to little personal-
ized playbooks that morph
and shift according to indi-
viduals' actions. Anytime
a person goes off-book, the
Adjustment Bureau guys
step in and tweak things to
get the plan back on track.

floral arrangement with the
help of six floral designers.
All materials will be pro-
vided, and experts will be on
hand to provide professional
tips and techniques.
The cost of $18 includes


They don't fly, they don't
carry weapons, but they're
unkillable and the physical
world seems pretty much at
their command.
Damon plays David Nor-
ris, a Brooklyn-born candi-
date for the U.S. Senate with
a history of stupid public
behavior that has just cost
him an election. Blunt is
up-and-coming dancer Elise
Sellas. A chance meeting
strikes sparks, but accord-
ing to the Chairman's plan,
the two cannot be allowed to
stay together. So the Men in
Black I mean, the men in
the Mad Men hats (they're
actually led by Mad Men's
John Slattery) derail the
two. Unfortunately for the
harmony of the universe,
David sees too much and
has to be threatened with
a bureau "reset" (a memory
erasure) to shut him up. If
you know Matt Damon, you
know that's just a starting
gun for him.
The rest of the film is Da-
vid and Elise crossing paths
over and over, and David
learning more and more
about the bureau. Sympa-
thetic bureau agent Harry
(Anthony Mackie) feeds Da-
vid some tantalizing facts,


breakfast and all materials.

but a formidable upper-
level adjustment op named
Thompson (Terence Stamp),
a.k.a. "The Hammer," is de-
tailed to break things off for
good. He gives David an ear-
ful about Free Will and how
every time the Chairman
decides to step back and let
humanity fend for itself, we
pull stunts like the Dark
Ages and the Holocaust. As
of the Cuban Missile Crisis,
we are back in the Era of
No Free Will. That's where
aspiring statesman David
comes in. I think he's sup-
posed to be a Democrat, so
you can see where this is
headed.
Fortunately, that's as far
as the politics go. For me, the
free will/no free will debate
is by far the most interesting
element of the film. It could
have gone further with that
and I wish that it had. The
director probably figured he
had to do something with
his two really good-looking
leads. Hence, the emphasis
on romance that dominates
the latter part of the film.
In the end, the dramatic
question of The Adjustment
Bureau is not so much Will
There be Free Will? as it is,
Will True Love Find a Way?

Free Willies: The Adjustment Bureau


$2 order. I couldn't not tip
someone so nice, and told
him so.
Or the cashier at Wal-
greens, Jessie, who gave me
pause when she answered
my harried "Fine, thanks,
how are you" with a sincere
"I'm doing quite well, thank
you."
. Or Tammy at the Panama
City Social Security office
who helped ease my mind
when I learned my son's So-
cial Security number may
have been claimed by some-
one else.
Instead of being glued
to the television when En-
tertainment Tonight comes
on, what if we were glued to
ideas like "Soul Pancake,"
a book which lists creative
ways to improve the lives of
others with an attitude shift
and random acts of kind-
ness, like leaving flowers
on a stranger's doorstep, or
tucking a dollar into some-
one's coat pocket.
What if, instead of lis-
tening to drug-addicts rave
about being rock stars and
basing our water-cooler wor-
thiness on celebrity trivia,
we made a conscious effort
to create our own happiness
and cultivate our worth by
being an everyday rock star,
the kind who leaves encour-
agement notes for a single
mom, or takes his grand-
mother a hot meal, or plays
trivial pursuit with her little
sister. Those are life's celeb-
rity moments.
Boom, print that.

Thousands have
bought their tickets,
hundreds of hotel
rooms have been
booked and most of the
top smooth jazz
musicians are gearing
up to make their first,
or fifth appearance on
the Florida Emerald
Coast. In a little more
than a month, the
2011 WSBZ Seabreeze
Jazz Festival, will once
again take over Pier
Park and be crowned
the biggest smooth jazz
festival in the nation.
..------------------------------------.
In less than five weeks,
Pier Park in Panama City
Beach, will be turned into
the largest concert venue
on the Florida Panhandle.
With nearly 30 acts and
groups in the smooth jazz
genre, music and fans, will
fill the arena and bring
another huge economic
boost to Bay County, April
13-17.
Originally begun in
Walton County, 13 years
ago, three years ago the
festival moved to a larger,
less restricted at Aaron
Bessant Park (Pier Park) in
Panama City Beach, and
has called it home ever
since. It is a smooth jazz
enthusiast's dream come
true, since the festival
combines sound and songs
from artists who have been
on stage for 30 or more
years, to those performers
who are pushing their first
album sales.
But it's not just about
the top earning, Grammy
Award-wining musicians
that will be bringing
national and international
attention to Bay County
and the Florida Emerald
Coast. It will also be about
the more than .20,000
ticket-holders from around
the world, that pump
nearly $2 million dollars in


the local economy, and the
impact it has at the kick-off
of the tourist season.
Many have argued that
events such as the
numerous bike festivals
and car shows, art expos
and other events, bring in
many more people over the
spring and summer, but the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival
stands alone as the highest
economic booster in the
Panhandle. Since nearly 90
percent of all ticket-holders
are from out of state, most
stay for at least a week and
the average income for a
couple attending is
$100,000 plus, the impact
on the local economy soars
for those few days.
Nearly 99 percent of all
ticket-holders do not bring
their children, will splurge
on the upgraded rooms and
accommodations, tend to
eat out every meal, and pay
extra for our area's
sunshine hospitality and
amenities. It is an event
that Bay County thrives on
and advertises heavily for,
due to the decline of travel
and the economy.
This year's line-up has
been labeled the best ever.
With nearly 30 solo acts,
groups and performers, the
WSBZ Seabreeze Jazz
Festival will spotlight
smooth jazz legends such as
George Benson and Boney
James, but it will also bring
to the stage new and hot
beginners like Eric Darius
and Marcus Anderson.
Once again, the
International Artists and
Vendor Market will play a
big role in the festival, as


more than 50 hand-selected
artists and vendors from
around the world. From
concert t-shirts and hand-
crafted clothing to jazz
sculpture, paintings and
photography, the market is
one-of-a-kind, and this
collection of vendors cannot
be found anywhere else
except for the New Orleans
Jazz Festival.
Sponsored once again by
Hilltop Productions, which
is also in charge of the
festival management, the
market will combine top
quality commercial
vendors, some of the best
food vendors in the nation,
and a worldwide selection
of fine arts, to bring
another important factor to
the already filled schedule
of events during the five-
day event. As before, the
International Artists and
Vendor Market is open to
ticket-holders only.
This year, featured
smooth jazz artists like
Sidney Carter, Aaron Reed,
Carl Crawford, John Darre,
Ron Hunter and Ricky
Steele, will be on hand
throughout the week,
selling their one-of-a-kind,
world-renowned artwork
that many of the festival-
goers, come to just buy
another piece of artwork in
their collection, or series,
from their favorite smooth
jazz artists.
But they all come from
all around the world or one
reason...to hear the best
that smooth jazz has to
offer, and for a chance to
get up close and personal
with their favorite


performer, or band.
This year's line-up will
topple all others from years
past and it includes the
following groups: George
Benson, Boney James,
Brian Culbertson, Norman
Brown, Candy Dulfer,
Richard Elliot, Peter White,
Euge Groove, Gerald
Albright, Kirk Whalum,
Jeff Golub, Mindi Abair,
Eric Darius, Warren Hill,
Cindy Bradley, Marion
Meadows, Ken Ford, Paul
Taylor, Dotsero, Joey
Sommerville, Marcus
Anderson, Julian Vaughn,
Nicholas Cole, Robert
Harris, RomanStreet, and
Jones and Company.
The festival begins on
April 13, with the Smooth
Jazz Cruise taking place on
the Lady Anderson Dinner
Cruise. This year's guest
host and performer, will be
Eric Darius, who will also
be hosting the festival and
the after parties each night
after the day's events.
Beginning this year, a
Thursday evening concert
on April 14 will open the
concert venue at Pier Park
one night earlier than in
the previous years. Both
April 14 and 15 concerts
will begin at 7 p.m., with
gates opening to VIP,
sponsors and general
admission ticket-holders at
5 p.m.
On April 16 and 17,
gates will open at 8:30 a.m.
for VIP and sponsors, while
all general admission
ticket-holders will be able
to get and grab their
favorite plot on the lawn,
beginning at 9 a.m., with
concerts beginning at 10
a.m. both days. There are
day paases, as well as,
weekend passes still
available for the festival.
Tickets for the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival are
on sale and they can be
purchased by calling (800)
595-4849, or by logging on
to www.seabreezejazz

THE KREWE DE YAK MADE QUITE an impression
once again at the Krewe of St. Andrews and the Krewe of
Dominique Youx Mardi Gras parades, over the past two
weeks. A combined 100,000 people line the streets of Pier
Park and downtown Panama City, to catch a glimpse, a
bead, or a picture of the more than 20 local krewes that
rolled in both parades this past year. -

Tourist Development


After recent approval by
the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners,
the Walton County Tourist
Development Council (TDC)
is pleased to launch its
2011-2012 Event Sponsor-
ship Program. The program
has evolved to offer new
sponsorship categories and
a more detailed application
and evaluation process.

The event sponsorship
program was created to
provide financial support to
individuals and businesses
holding events and festivals
in Walton County that at-
tract visitors and enhance
the visitor experience. Since
bed tax collections are used
to fund the event sponsor-
ship program, those seeking
financial aid for 2011-2012
events will be required to
complete an extensive appli-
cation, detailing the impact
the event has on attracting
out-of-town visitors and in-
creasing tourism in beaches
of south Walton. Catego-
ries now include Signature
Events and Experience
Events.
The Signature category
events are multiple day, mul-
tiple venue events and may
be awarded up to $50,000 to
be used toward marketing as
well as startup costs for new
events. The Experience cat-
egory events are those that
enhance the visitor experi-
ence, with emphasis in the
arts, eco-tourism and/or cul-


ture and heritage and may
be awarded up to $10,000 in
sponsorship.
"The more thorough ap-
plication and evaluation
will allow us to better gauge
the events that are draw-
ing visitors to our destina-
tion so that we can direct
the sponsorship funds most
appropriately," said TDC
Executive Director Dawn
Moliterno. "In addition, the
updates to this program al-
low more flexibility to sup-
port new, large-scale events
and festivals that haven't
been held in our destination
before, but have the poten-
tial to draw large numbers
of attendees and become an-
nual traditions."
The full event sponsor-
ship program with appli-
cation and guidelines can
be found on the Beaches of
South Walton Partner Web-
site (bswpartners.com) un-
der the "TDC Event Spon-
sorship" link in the right
bottom corner of the main
page.
Six (6) hard copies of the
completed application must
be received no later than 3
p.m. on Monday, April 4,
2011. Applications will be
accepted at the TDC Offices,
located at 25777 U.S. 331
S., Santa Rosa Beach, FL
32459, either in person or by
mail. For more information
on the event sponsorship
program, contact Jami Ray
or Kelli Carter at (850) 267-

Nothing goes better with
contemporary jazz than con-
temporary art, and the Sea-
breeze Jazz Festival Art-
work and T-Shirt design for
2011 is a perfect blending of
both. Created by renowned
contemporary painter Al-
fred Gockel of Germany,
the design is a visual fu-
sion of jazz and art in one
very funky design. Known
as one of the "most collected
contemporary artists of our
time," Alfred Gockel's works
are highly sought-after by
some of the world's top art
collectors and art affician-


dos. The vibrant use of col-
or and his unique style truly
dipicts the funky coolness
yet sophistication of smooth
jazz and the Seabreeze Jazz
Festival. Alfred Gockel will
make a special appearance
at the Seabreeze Jazz Fes-
tival doing "live painting"
each day with his original
work being auctioned to the
crowd at the end of each fes-
tival day. For the jazz-lover
and art collector -- this is the
event to attend!
