New Council members
Ron Kelley and Mac Work
were sworn in to the De-
Funiak Springs City Coun-
cil, as was City Marshal
Mark Weeks. Mayor Har-
old Carpenter welcomed the
new members, also inform-
ing them, "I have no prob-

if you become that out of
order." Later in the meet-
ing, Carpenter would bang
the gavel and declare, "Mr.
Work, I'll conduct this meet-
ing."
,Councilman Work wast-
ed no time, placing discus-
sion of a hiring, freeze on
the agenda. Work stated he
wanted to discuss a hiring
freeze for all city depart-
ments as well as examine
positions hired within the
past two weeks. Currently,
the city has four openings,
three of which-captain,
sergeant, custodian-are in
the police department, the
remainder being the city
clerk's position temporarily
held by Jonathan King.


KIM KIRBY has been elected president of the American
Public Works Association (APWA) Florida Chapter.



Kim Kirby elected


President of APWA


Florida Chapter


On Thursday, April 21,
during the American Public
Works Association (APWA)
Florida Chapter 2011 Annu-
al Meeting and Trade Show
in Daytona Beach, Fla., Kim
Kirby was elected Presi-
dent of the American Public
Works Association Florida
Chapter. APWA'is a nation-
al association whose mission
is to develop and support
the people, agencies, and
organizations in the busi-
ness of public works; those
who plan, build, maintain,
and improve our communi-
ties and our infrastructure.
Working together, APWA
and its membership contrib-
ute to a higher and sustain-
able quality of life. APWA is
uniquely positioned to create
valuable connections and so-
lutions for those serving our
communities through public
works and is the only profes-
sional association which cov-
ers all areas of public works,
including but not limited to
streets, sanitation, parks,
facilities, fleet maintenance,
engineering, environmental
science, and utilities such
as water, wastewater, and
natural gas. APWA offers


its members an unparal-
leled network for informa-
tion, education, professional
development, advocacy, and
social interaction for those
in the public works field.
"I am extremely honored
to serve our membership and
those in the business of pub-
lic works as president of the
APWA Florida Chapter. It
is an honor and a privilege
to have been nominated and
elected by my public works
colleagues throughout the
state of Florida," Kirby stat-
ed. Kirby has been a mem-
ber of APWA since 2001, and
was a recipient of four schol-
arships awarded through
the association from 1999
through 2003, which as-
sisted her in attaining her
bachelor's degree from the
University of Alabama in
2005. In 2006, she was ap-
pointed as Scholarship Com-
mittee Chair of the Florida
Chapter, by then-President
Mark Juliano. She held the
position of scholarship com-
mittee chair for three years
until 'her nomination as

School Board considers



early retirement bonus


ByASHLEYAMASON
An early retirement in-
centive bonus may soon be
on the table if approved by
the Walton County School
Board (WCSB) and collec-
tive bargaining agreement.
In a workshop April 19,
Chief Financial Officer Jim
McCall presented options
for an early incentive retire-
ment bonus to curb pay-scale
costs in next year's strained
budget. "Next year's bud-
get is not going to be a good
one," McCall opened.
After researching early
retirement plans from Oka-
loosa, Bay, Pasco, and Pinel-
las school districts as well
as the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC), McCall presented
two options-Okaloosa and
BCC-to the board and su-
perintendent.


Employees who meet
qualifications for normal
retirement, either 30 years
of service or age 62 with six
years of creditable service
with the Walton County
School District (WCSD), can
receive 40 percent of their
nine, 10, or 12-month salary
excluding instructional and
ESP supplements under the
Okaloosa plan, or $1,000 for
each year of creditable ser-
vice under the BCC plan.
The board has not chosen
which plan, if any, will be
enacted. According to Mc-
Call's presentation, "The
retirement incentive will
not be paid to any employee
who continues employment
beyond June 30 of the year
they reach their first eligi-
bility for normal retirement
benefits...and employees
who have previously retired


or are within their last 24
months of DROP are not eli-
gible."
Additionally, theincentive
may change or cease at the
board's discretion. Should
the board move forward with
the BCC plan, it will have a
net initial cost of $900,252
with a meager first-year
savings of $15,600. Savings
in subsequent years, 2012-
13 through 2015-16, would
total $1,050,851. Savings
could be higher depending
upon the rate of attrition.
McCall's staff estimated
28 likely candidates are
eligible for the early retire-
ment incentive bonus.
In the regular WCSB
meeting, Principal Mike
Davis announced 100 indus-

By LEAH STRATMANN
In less than a year of or-
ganizing, the Friends of the
Animal Shelter are manag-
ing to accomplish a great
deal. Several fund raisers
and generous donations re-
sulted in the purchase of a
modern, heated surgical ta-
ble for the shelter. Recent-
ly, the friends were able to
catapult the Walton County
shelter into the top 50 of a
challenge issued by the AS-
PCA.
The challenge was to nar-
row a field of 93 shelters
across the county down to
50 through the use of Inter-
net voting. The top 50 will
now be in contention for


$100,000 to use in saving
the lives of dogs and cats.
Bill Bard, president of
the Friends group said, "If
anything the vote would
get us going and I thought
it would be a great way to
get the community to know
about the shelter and know
about the Friends and get
some money for a low cost
spay and neuter program.
The county shelter applied
to be a contestant. One of
the ways I've looked at our
relationship with the county
is that we don't get in each
other's business, but we are
the people they borrow a cup
of sugar from.
"I've been involved in In-


ternet voting before and by
the end it's like watching the
end of the Kentucky Derby.
That's what happened with
us. When we fell out of the
top 50 it was a very depress-
ing day. I initially thought
one of the best ways to get
the word out was to print
out little cards with the
website on it for people to
use. We went to Walmart
and handed out cards. We
started to build momentum.
Facebook helped us out a lot
and before we knew it we
were getting some 600 votes
a day. People are energized
by it. At the monthly meet-
ing people were talking
about it," Bard said.


However all the voting
merely qualified the shelter
for the challenge and the
challenge is based on get-
ting more animals out of
the shelter and into homes
or no-kill shelters than the
previous year.
Lois Marlowe, the man-
ager of the shelter said the
ASPCA would provide a
time period for the collec-
tions of statistics. Marlowe
is not yet sure how the sta-
tistics will be calculated as
the sizes of the shelters vary
widely across the county.
"We will compare the
number of animals that
went out during a specif-
ic period last year to this


year's numbers. If our rates
of saving lives and getting
them out for adoption were
not very good and we work
hard to save more this year,
we are likely to be in the
money. The goal is to get
those adoption rates up,"
Marlowe said.
Marlowe said the shelter
would be doing some pub-
licity and try to get on the
radio and have a lot of news-
paper stories. "On May 7 we
will have a booth at the West
Florida Farmers Co-Op. We
plan to run financial spe-
cials and get the word out
about that too," she said.

The cost for adoption
from the shelter is already
a family-friendly $55, which
includes receiving a pet that
is spayed or neutered and
current on inoculations.
Bard said, "The man-
tra is to save more lives.
We have done very well for
what we've got and we have
attracted some good people.

da Chapter in 2009. Kirby
credits the APWA Florida
Chapter and her branch col-
leagues with her profession-
al success. "Had it not been
for the support, encourage-
ment, and mentoring I have
received through our APWA
family, I would not be where
I am today. They have sup-
ported me, both personally
and professionally, and now
it is my turn to serve them!"
The Florida Chapter is
one of 63 chapters located
throughout North America
and serves virtually every
metropolitan area, state,
province, city, county and
region on the continent. Or-
ganized within nine regions,
APWA's 63 chapters engage
in the same educational,
networking and public ser-
vice activities as the na-
tional association, but they
do so close to home where


We were competing against
some large shelters, many
of which were tied to vet
schools, so getting into the
top 50 is absolutely great.
We need to attract more
volunteers. Our mission in
the next couple months is to
work on the spay and neuter
program and to build up our.
base."


According to Marlowe,
right now the shelter has
117 dogs and 82 cats from
which to choose. "People
come here every day to look
them over," she said.

the shelter or the hours of
operation, call 892-8758.

Paxton Town Council to review finances


before deciding on employee merit raises


By REID TUCKER

Though the Paxton Town
Council still has yet to re-
solve the issue of perfor-
mance evaluation-based
raises for employees of the
city's water department, but
the Council members agreed
to decide once and for all
come May.
The Council voted last
November to table the issue
until January of 2011 when
the newly elected Council
members would have accli-
mated themselves with the
city's employees. Then, in
January, the issue was ta-
bled until March, by which
time the city's 5-percent in-
crease to the water rate and
the 3-percent increase to
the sewer rate would have
taken effect. However, no
decision was reached at the
March meeting and neither
was one reached during this
month's regularly scheduled
meeting on Tuesday, April
19.
That said, it was unani-
mously decided that some-
thing would be decided


On April 18, a citizen
approached a DeFuniak
Springs Police (DFSPD) of-
ficer in the agency parking
lot and advised him that a
lady driving a Lincoln had
something wrong with her
and nearly killed him. He
provided the officer with
the numbers and letters dis-
played on the tag and point-
ed to the east. The officer
took to the street in attempt
to locate.
The search of the Lincoln,
Town Car ended just out-
side of the city limits when
officers and members from
the Walton County Sheriffs
Office made contact. It was
then found that the Lin-
coln Town Car had struck


about employee raises at
the following month's meet-
ing, once the Council re-
viewed a balance sheet and
a line-item income state-
ment detailing the city's fi-
nancial standing. Though
the city's general fund bud-
get was said to contain some
$300,000 for discretionary
spending, Paxton's water
system must show a profit
lest the city lose its state
funding, which was what
necessitated the rate hike in
the first place. It has been
argued in the past that some
of those funds could be used
for merit-based raises for
city employees with no ad-
ditional impact on Paxton's
taxpayers, but the Council
chose to resolve the matter
after reviewing all the as-
sociated information as part
of an effort to become more
knowledgeable about the
city's finances.
"It's time to get this thing
off our hands," said Council-
man Bobby Kemp.
The Council also voted
to renew the city's annual
roadside maintenance con-


other vehicles and a speed
limit sign prior to officer's
contact. The driver of the
Lincoln Town Car, identi-
fied as Anne M. Marx, was
transported to Healthmark
Regional Medical Center for
non-life threatening inju-
ries.
At around the same time
other officers from the De-
Funiak Springs Police re-
sponded to a hit and run
traffic crash at the intersec-
tion of State Road 10 (U.S.
90) and State Road 83 (9th
Street).
Ashton L. Campbell, who
was driving a 2000 Chevy
Monte Carlo, and passen-
ger Britney Peterson who
was located in the front


tract with the Walton Coun-
ty Association of Retarded
Citizens, otherwise known
as ARC, and the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion. The agreement takes
effect July 1, but other than
a change in the dates the
particulars of the contract
are the same as in years
prior. According to the pro-
visions of the agreement,
the state provides funds (in
this case $8,053.88) to the
city for maintenance of Pax-
ton's roads and these funds
are transferred to the ARC,
which actually performs the
work.
During the old business
section of the meeting, the
Council was notified of the
sale of two of the city's old
work vehicles at the Walton
County Surplus Auction,
held Thursday, April 14, in
DeFuniak Springs. The two
trucks, a Ford Ranger and
a Chevrolet S-10, brought
$400 and $900, respectively,
at the auction.
Mayor Hayward Thomas
notified the Council of the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-


right seat, began to slow/
stop for the traffic light,
and when the traffic light
turned green their vehicle
was struck from the rear by
a white Lincoln Town Car,
which fled the scene. Peter-
son was also transported
to Healthmark Regional
Medical Center for non-life
threatening injuries.

Investigation determined
that the Lincoln Town Car
driven by Anne M. Marx
was the vehicle in question
in both incidents. The in-
vestigation is still ongoing;
however there is reason to
believe that a controlled
substance could be a factor
in the crash.


fice's desire to sponsor a ro-
deo event within the Paxton
city limits to raise money for
juvenile diabetes. The Coun-
cil unanimously approved
the use of the large open
area behind the city's old
municipal airport building
during the time of the rodeo.
No specific time frame for
the event was given.

The final item discussed
by the Council began as a
routine water bill waiver
request. City Attorney Lori
Bytell said the Council could
not approve the waiver as
the individual bringing the
waiver before the board had
already had a high water


bill readjusted to the usual
rate on another occasion.
Though the city's policy is to
forgive a citizen's water bill
on a one-time-per-customer-
per-lifetime basis, Council-
man Tommy Mathis said he
would like to find a way to
"help out."
Bytell said if the Coun-
cil is unhappy with the way
the ordinance is enforced,
it should formally amend
it rather than make provi-
sions on an instance-by-in-
stance basis. Nevertheless,
Mathis, who is not in fa-
vor of the current one-time
waiver system, asked Bytell
if she would look into what
could legally be done as far


as setting up a payment
plan in instances where a
high water bill would place
a large financial burden on
an individual. Bytell agreed
to review the Town Charter
and submit a written opin-
ion before the next meeting,
when the Council agreed a
decision would be reached.
"I don't think it should be
automatic for anyone who
wants one," Mathis said. "I
think it ought to be based
on need. I don't think you
ought to have to come out in
public or to come before the
Council to get it done. I don't
see how we can approve this
without changing the whole
scheme of things."


Important deadline for Walton

County property owners April 29


Walton County property
owners need to be aware of
the approaching April 29
deadline. This deadline is
the last day to pay property
taxes before being adver-
tised and it is also the last
day to submit an in person
application for the property
tax installment plan.

At the close of business
next Friday, any delinquent
2010 property tax accounts
that are unpaid will be ad-
vertised in the paper for
three consecutive weeks.
The Tax Collector's Office by
law is required to advertise
the delinquent accounts.
Following the advertise-
ment period, any unpaid
accounts will be included in
the tax certificate sale to be
held June 1.
Additionally, tax pay-
ers with current accounts
can choose to participate in
the Property Tax Install-
ment Plan for 2011. The in-


stallment plan allows a tax
payer's property tax bill to
be paid in four installment
payments throughout this
tax year rather than one
lump sum payment. Tax
payers already enrolled in
the installment plan do not
have to make application. In
order to participate in this
plan, a tax payer must meet
the following criteria:
Property owner must be
current on all previous tax-
es.
Previous tax bills must
have exceeded $100.
An Installment Plan ap-
plication must be submitted
by April 30 (Applications
received by mail and post-
marked by April 30 will be
accepted.)
The installment plan re-
quires that the first install-
ment be made no later than
June 30. Failure to make
the first payment will auto-
matically terminate the par-
ticipant's eligibility fdr the


remainder of the year. The
taxpayer will then be sent a
regular tax bill in November
and must apply to be rein-
stated on the installment
plan for future tax years.
The first and second in-

Oil




Spiel


By BRUCE COLLIER

If you have any interest in the continuing saga of what
may or may not be going on the Gulf of Mexico a year after
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, you should read Dotty Nist's
excellent and detailed article on the South Walton Commu-
nity Council (SWCC) public forum, held April 19, reported
this edition of the Herald Breeze. The featured speaker was
Dr. Richard Snyder of University of West Florida's Center
for Environmental Diagnostics and Bioremediation, and he
had a lot to say. Some of it was reassuring, some was dis-
turbing, some was just confusing.
For one thing, he said emphatically that there was no
dispersant left in the gulf. That's good. On the other hand,
he said that dumping "a million gallons" of dispersant into
the water had wiped out so much plankton that the marine
life that eats that plankton might be adversely affected.
Shrimp eat plankton, and tourists come here to eat shrimp.
That's bad. On the other other hand, he noted that inter-
ruption of fishing because of post-spill bans has led to a
"significant" increase in fish population numbers. That's
good, unless of course there's something wrong with the
fish who've been in detox, so to speak, which is...oh, well.
The forum ended with SWCC's Executive Director Ani-
ta Page calling for support of legislation currently pend-
ing that would earmark a substantial portion of fines lev-
ied from the oil spill for "the ecological restoration of the
gulf." That sounds pretty good to me, except judging from
the diversity of opinions still being voiced a year after the
spill, I am pretty sure no one knows for certain how to do
that. It seems we haven't got much more than a bag of vary-
ing hypotheses on the ecology of the gulf. The struggle is
which one we will choose to implement. Whether the one we
choose will work or not is another question.
For example, I was not aware that there were so many
natural oil seeps in the gulf. Assuming that oil has been in
the ground under the gulf for millions of years, that means
the gulf has been doing something with it all that time.
Granted, Deepwater Horizon was a huge slug of the crude
stuff, but what can we do that isn't already in place, in na-
ture? Is there a natural process we need to stand aside and
let happen? If so, for how long? One year? A hundred?
Also, we're mixing our problems. Whether you agree with
continued drilling or not is a separate issue from what to
do about spills when they happen. Snyder's comment that
the spill was due to regulations not being followed, and not
because of any inherent evil in using petroleum products,
may not have gone down well with those who want Deepwa-
ter Horizon to be the wake-up call for an end to all drilling.
To some it's a moral issue, like abolition.
Snyder's is a gloomy observation, but it is realistic. As
long as we use machinery that uses oil-based products, we
have to keep getting it from somewhere, or start using some
other kind of energy. The real issue is how to make it un-
profitable truly unprofitable for oil companies to ignore
safety regulations. That's a whole other kind of legislation.
Me, I just wish I could figure out how to make my car run
on dirty diapers.

LETTERTOTiH EITOR


Editor,
To Federal Elected Folks
For the last few weeks, I have been thinking about
your inability to agree on a budget. You talk about cutting
planned parenthood, health programs, medicare, abortion
programs, education. For my part all those programs need
more help.
If you took any 12 people walking in downtown Freeport,
I'll bet you they could decide where to cut the budget.
Everything the Federal government does falls in two ar-
eas. One is people oriented, transportation, environmental,
labor, agriculture justice, education, health and human


services. The second area is war, guns, nuclear weapons,
department of defense. Question? How much of the federal
dollar goes to those two areas? Answer; .40 cents goes to
people programs. .60 cents to war subjects.
Fact is it took me about an hour to write this letter. The
federal elected folks, spend over 2 million dollars ?????? on
war. Thats $120,000,000,000 every hour 24 hrs per day.
Where would you look to save a little. I'll bet you two
cents we could agree where.

Jack Potter
Freeport, FL


Editor:
Regarding the front page article, "Walton County re-
districting process gets started," I would like to make the
suggestion that our five districts follow the recently passed
Florida redistricting amendments. Those two Amendments
passed by over.60 percent of Florida voters, gave uniform
and impartial guidelines to the legislatures, on how to
shape districts, and draw district boundaries. We the vot-
ers said that, we no longer wanted politics involved, but
sound mathematics and geometry and creating equally
shaped and equally populated, without regard to the cur-
rent incumbent or the current party or favoring a particu-
lar population, such as DeFuniak Springs.
I would like the districts to be unique in territorial repre-
sentation so that each district represents a unique part of
the county, all while remaining similarly shaped and con-
centric.
As it currently is drawn, DeFuniak Springs' population
controls four of the five districts. These four districts all
have a common intersection right in the middle of town,
splitting the town into four quadrants. This means that the
city folk of DeFuniak Springs, being the heavy population of
all four districts will control the type of person to be elected
in those.four districts. The tendency will be to vote for four
commissioners and four school board members that are city
thinking kind of folk, not country. You see, city folk, being
all crammed together, tend to approve of a lot of rules and
regulations that country folks despise. This country person
living in Mossy Head, does not live in the city, for that very
reason.
So, this is an open letter to Rob Nelson, Ken Little, Tom
Blackshear, Ronnie Bell, Bonnie McQuiston, Kevin Laird,
and the unpublished committee members. I recommend, 1.
Drawing four district lines, separating five districts, drawn
horizontally from the east county line to the west county
line, so that one district only touches one other district


Editor:
Reunion, what is it good for? I know, I know, the song
was War, What is it good for? I'm working a reunion for
three Walton High School classes (1965-1967) which start-
ed out on just the 1966 Class. It is not war but sometimes
when trying to email or call classmates I experience the
"Fog of War." First, most of the classmates probably have no
memory of who Don White is or was. I transferred to Wal-
ton March of 1964 to finish the 10th grade with my mother
and sister. Family crisis arose early my junior year and I
ended up finishing school living in a foster home. Kenneth
and Joy Straughn and his parents took better of me than
my family. I could not have asked for a better experience.
This is just part of my story the last 45 years. I hope to be
able to share more of my more than 41 years of Air Force
war stories with many of my 1965-1967 classmates. I want
to hear your story too. I know many of you have kept up
with classmates over the years and believe a reunion is just
a waste of time and money but every opportunity is special
and especially since we made it 44-46 years. I am coming
from San Antonio and I have heard from others that are
coming from a long distance to celebrate with us. I hope our
classmates that live close by don't take this opportunity to
meet and celebrate lightly. It will be worth your time and
sacrifice! Too many of our classmates have left us far too
early and no one knows how many more opportunities we
have. I know some of you may feel $30 is too much for one


Editor:
I would like to compliment the city of DFS and the hard-
working employees for the many improvements they have
done in the Lakeyard for all to enjoy. There are new picnic
tables and benches, sidewalks have been installed as well as
repaired, trees have been pruned, new ones planted around
the fountain, public bathrooms have been refurbished, and
a new shuffleboard court has been installed. For dog walk-


along that horizontal east to west line and the drawn line
does not come close to a third district, (Currently we have
four districts touching each other or being very close to each
other); 2. That these lines follow precinct boundaries; and
3. That they be equal in eligible voter population. This will
give five horizontal districts, stacked north to south. The
approximate locations of these four horizontal east to west
lines could be at Hwy 98, the middle of the bay, Hwy 20,
and US90.
I highly recommend Ronnie Bell's idea, of redrawing very
small precinct's boundaries to save money. I further would
expand on his idea, and make them equal in population and
concentric in shape, just like districts. Did you know that
of the 34 precincts, many have a population of fewer than a
hundred voters, while several precincts have a population
over 10,000 voters. A little unequal, don't you think? Are
these sacred political strongholds? My, how, high school
never ends, does it.
Please remember freedom is free. It is government that
makes it cost so much. The number of precincts can be re-
duced in half, allowing 3,000 voters in 18 precincts, total.
That saves the cost of 17 polling places. That is 17 times the
six or so employees needed at each election, plus the costs of
the machines, etc. Rob Nelson was wise also, in his sugges-
tion, of keeping to known natural boundaries. Take a look
at the precinct boundaries at http://www.voterfocus.com/
hosting/walton/ew_pages/Maps/Precinct%20Maps/All%20
Precincts.pdf, and you will see that they DO NOT.
Let's make our districts cost effective, logical and impar-
tial to city or country or Republican or Democrat, and then
let's hope our elected officials keep all those city type rules
in the city, and keep the country free.

evening meal and $6.50 and $5.00 or $10 for both a reunion
t-shirt and combined 1965-1967 Directory. I look at it as a
small investment to remind me of my past and make me
think about my future. I feel like a teenager again digesting
my yearbook and reading all those wonderful(?) comments
some of you made. I want to give all of you an opportunity
to update as needed. The music of 1965-1967 is the best
ever and it really lifts my spirit hearing those old songs. I
can't get the Peter and Gordon song, "I Go To Pieces," out
of my head. I've even started watching the Wonder Years
again. I also know reunions sometimes lead to romance, I
have heard of widows, widowers and divorcees that hook up
with their high school sweetheart years later. I had a 67
year old friend at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio
that within a year of his wife's death he reconnected with
his high school sweetheart whose husband had died and he
ended up retiring marrying her and moving to New York.
Freaked all of us out but for months before they married he
was as giddy as Dion's song, "Why Must I Be a Teenager
in Love." We're gathering June 10-11. Take a look at the
announcement in the Herald and the Walton High School
website alumni link. Contact Sara Keith or Lynda Melson
locally or email me at afdtwhite@ol.com or cell phone (210)

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 28,2011

Interview with the Bird Lady


By BEN GRAFTON
Last week from her water-
front home in Niceville, Lisa
Miller, a permitted wildlife
rehabilitator sometimes
called .the Bird Lady, talked
about her commitment to
saving sick and injured wild
animals and her work as a
member of the Wildlife Re-
habilitators Partnership of
NW Florida, Inc.
Miller's home is equipped
to serve as a treatment and
recovery center for birds
and small animals and right
from the outset she lets you
know the patients are her
first priority. No photog-
raphers are allowed in the
holding areas for fear that
the activity could interfere
with the recovery of her
charges.
Orphaned baby birds
must be fed every 20 min-
utes in the 14 hours from
dawn until sunset. Every


20 minutes a small alarm
sounds and Miller leaves
her visitors and goes to feed
the babies who, by the way,
are housed in the guest bed-
room and have heating pads
to keep them warm. When
there are multiple groups
of baby birds, each has its
own timer so feeding may be
hectic but can be made on
schedule.
Baby mammals are a dif-
ferent issue. Miller said she
gets a lot of baby possums,
so young that they have no
hair. Like other baby mam-
mals, they must be tube-fed
every two hours throughout
each 24-hour day.
Miller said that her hus-
band, who is a builder, got
her into rehabilitation work.
About nine or 10 years ago
he came home from work
and told her one of his cli-
ents had told him about a
woman who took care of pel-
icans, one of Miller's favor-


ite animals. Her husband
told the client, "Oh, my wife
would love that." So Miller
said, "I called the client who
gave me the name of the re-
habilitator. I called the lady
and she soon had me foster-
ing needy pelicans."
The Wildlife Rehabilita-
tors group is small, about
10 people are the corps of
volunteers and they do all
kinds of different things.
Some of them prefer to work
with certain animals, baby
birds and grey squirrels for
example, while others do
not foster every kind of ani-
mal that the group handles.
Normally the volunteers
take the baby animals to
their homes for treatment.
Large birds, the occasional
deer and anything unusual,
Miller handles.
The group does not treat
any of the animals in the
rabies vector. Those ani-
mals include foxes, coyotes,
bats, bobcats, raccoons and
skunks. Miller said that
unless one has had pre-
exposure shots, one cannot
handle these animals. The
shots are hard to get and
three doses are required at
more than $200 per dose.
Even with pre-exposure
shots, upon exposure to a
rabid animal, it is still nec-
essary to have the rabies
treatment. Miller said there
are other people in the area
who handle rabies vector
animals and referrals are
made whenever someone
has a sick or injured animal
from this group. She consid-
ers raccoons to be dangerous
animals because they carry


PAGE 7-A

other diseases besides ra-
bies.
When badly injured
animals come in they are
housed in the guest bed-
room: But there are other
holding areas, too: cages for
large birds like raptors and
fish eaters are located in the
home's shop.
Miller said the job in-
cludes preparing the ani-
mals to live in the wild.
When the animals become
self-feeding they are trans-
ferred to an area where they
are no longer handled. Vol-
unteers go to this area sev-
eral times a day with food
or to clean but they do not
talk to the animals or touch
them. Over a period of time
the natural instincts take
over and when they are able
to care for themselves they


are released.
Funding the rehabilita-
tion operation is an ongo-
ing problem. The group is
presently without a grant
writer and as a result is not
getting money from founda-
tions that helps so much.
Miller does some education-
al presentations for which

Always welcome are those

The demands on animal
rehabilitators are a heavy
load. Miller said, "Some peo-
ple find the thing they need
to do early in life and some
later. I found that animal
rehabilitation was my thing
when I was 40, and I just
turned 50. I truly love'what
I do. There are days when
what I do is too much. But
then I have all these others
(animals) who need me to
be at tip-top shape to help
them. And I want people to
know that I do what I do,
not because I have to, but
because I choose to."

Community Walton continues to work on federal recognition


By LEAH STRATMANN

The monthly meeting of
Community Walton, the
grass roots organization
dedicated to solving local
problems, met last week
to discuss ongoing proj-
ects. One of the goals of the
group for this year is to gain
federal recognition for the
Muscogee Nation of Florida
and the April meeting took
place in the council house.
On this issue, Chuck
Tucker reported that Con-
gressmen Miller and South-
erland have put together a
bill to before the House of
Representatives on May 3.
Tucker said there had been
rumors that Sen. Marco Ru-
bio was not interested in
supporting the legislation,
but it turns out Rubio very
much supports the bill and


wants it known the issue is
a bipartisan one and he has
also introduced a bill, so two
bills will be presented on
May 3.
Guest speaker Virgil
Smith, a member of Village
Baptist Church and the man
who has spearheaded the
Rural Relief Coalition com-
mented, "There are super-
natural things going on in
Bruce. The coalition start-
ed the first workshop with
five members representing
five churches and the third
workshop brought 40 people
representing 25 groups," he
said.
Smith noted the Emerald
Coast Fellowship of Baptist
Churches has taken an in-
terest in the coalition and
the fellowship represents
23 churches, apart from the
other Baptist churches that


are already involved.
The primary and ongo-
ing need of the rural poor is
food. Tucker said deliveries
from the USDA are spotty
and often present new chal-
lenges. "The last delivery
featured chickens packed 40
pounds to the bag, making it
difficult for us, but we do ap-
preciate the food and we will
make it work," he said.
To supplement the food
purchased and provided,
Village Baptist Church col-
lects a specific canned food
type for three weeks and
then delivers the canned
goods to the pantry, Smith
noted. "The primary needs
are food, housing, health
care and clothing."
Aside from meeting basic
living needs, the coalition
wants to find a way for people
to sustain themselves and


not be dependent upon oth-
ers to provide for them. To
this end, one simple project
is the collection of firewood,
which is abundantly avail-
able. The firewood will be
given to people who need it,
but extra wood will be sold.
As Tucker noted, "This gives
people a way to give back in
a small way that does not
cost them anything."
S"When you work with peo-
ple who have lost hope, you
have to break the pattern,"
Smith opined. "We do not
know all the existing skills
of the people in the area, but
once we know that, we can
direct our efforts towards
self-sufficiency."

Another plan of the group
is to plant Christmas trees
on the available land. Smith
said the initial investment to


buy the trees is small and it
only takes about four years
to have a crop of trees and
the market is here to sell
the trees. "We need to plant
by December or January, so
we still have some time and
we certainly have the people
to farm it," Smith said.
Another avenue for reve-
nue and creating small busi-
nessmen is to use the Inter-
net to sell Native American
crafts.
Rev. Benjamin Tandy,
one of the members of Com-
munity Walton suggested
the group secure the status
of a faith-based non-profit
group getting a 501(3) c
tax exemption certificate.
"There is about $6 billion
dollars sitting in Washing-
ton for distribution to faith-
based groups. All we have to
have is tax-free status and


someone to write the grants
to apply for those funds," he
said.
Tucker reported that to
date the pantry has distrib-
uted 55,000 pounds of food.
"We have been blessed," he
said. "The way we found
out about the needs of area
residents was from the min-
ister at Bruce Methodist
Church."
Community Walton chair-
man Jan Stevens reported
the work is ongoing for 2-1-
1. "COPE is moving forward
and has put their arms
around this and they have
written several grants. This
project is still alive and hap-
pening, but we must grow at
a pace that is manageable."

Walton County Housing pursues fraud investigations


The Walton County Hous-
ing Agency has requested
investigations on 16 clients
that evidence indicates re-
ported false information on
income and family composi-
tion to the agency. That in-
formation has been present-
ed to the HUD Inspector
General's office for investi-
gation and possible prosecu-
tion. These 16 individuals
appear to have caused an
overpayment of assistance
in the amount of $64,296. In
a letter to the HUD Inspec-
tor General on April 8, 2011,
Housing Director Tom Baker
made detailed referrals and


April is National Child
Abuse Prevention Month.
This month and throughout
the year, COPE Center, Inc
encourages all individuals
and organizations to play
a role in making Walton
County a better place for
families. By ensuring that
parents have the knowl-
edge, skills, and resources
they need to care for their
children, we can help pre-
vent child abuse and neglect
by strengthening families
and communities.

Research shows that five
important factors are pres-
ent in healthy families.
Promoting these factors is
among the most effective
ways to reduce the risk of
child abuse and neglect.
They are: Nurturing and
attachment, knowledge of
parenting and of child and
youth development, paren-
tal resilience, social connec-
tions, concrete supports for
parents.
"April is a time to cele-
brate the important role that
communities play in protect-
ing children," said Rachel
Gillis, COPE Center's CEO.
"Everyone's participation is
critical. Focusing on ways to
promote the five protective
factors, in every interaction
with families, is the best
thing our community can do
to strengthen families and
prevent child abuse and ne-
glect."
In support of these ef-
forts, the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Ser-
vices, Children's Bureau,


asked that a complete inves-
tigation be conducted. All 16
former tenants have been
removed from the program
under agency rules; and
they cannot reapply for as-
sistance for a period of three
years unless exonerated by
the Inspector General.
The agency currently re-
ceives $1.6 million each year
from the federal government
to provide rental housing
assistance in Walton Coun-
ty. This money allows the
agency to provide assistance
to about 300 local families
each month through the Sec-
tion 8 voucher program. In

a variety of plants. Locally

ily event and a way to meet

addition to helping needy
families, the program also
helps participating Walton
County landlords by assur-
ing that a portion of the rent
due from tenants will be paid
each month. All revenues as-
sociated with this program
are federal tax dollars. No
county ad valorem revenue
is used to provide this as-
sistance, nor is money paid
directly to clients. There is a
further benefit to the county
as a whole in that partici-
pating rental units are peri-
odically inspected to ensure
they meet HUD standards
of safety and habitability,
thus reducing the level of
deteriorated housing in the
community.
Recently affidavits were
signed against four past
clients for public assistance
fraud that represented a loss
to the agency of $24,459. One
has been successfully pros-
ecuted in a Walton County
court and partial restitution
has been made to the agen-
cy. The other three cases are
pending.
Baker said, "There is
no trickery involved in the
process and the rules are
clear. Clients are asked

about family size and in-
come and it is up to them to
tell us the truth." Further,
"It finally got to the point
that we had to seek investi-
gative help in hopes that we
can control the fraud issue
at some point. Our agency
is a small agency, and I can-
not comprehend the loss
that may be occurring in the
other 3,000 larger agencies
in our nation."
In February of 2011
the agency collected over
$11,000 from tenants that
have been identified as ow-
ing the agency due to over-
payments. Said Baker,
"This was a good month, as
most months we only col-
lect about $2,000 of the debt
owed to the agency."
In the fall of 2010 Baker
sent letters to federal rep-
resentatives in an effort
to bring some understand-
ing to their offices that lo-
cal agencies need help in
recovering monies lost to
over-payments. Baker's rec-
ommendation included al-
lowing local HUD agencies
to recover funds owed for
housing fraud from federal
income tax returns. It has

recipients on the Section 8
program receive earned in-
come tax credit as well as
other refunds that could al-
low for a method of repay-
ment. Baker states that
recovery of monies through
the IRS is currently allowed
with the Veterans Adminis-
tration, the Social Security
Administration and the In-
ternal Revenue Service it-
self, but not HUD. Recovery
of monies owed to an agency
in this manner would allow
the client to repay the debt
and remain on the program
in a form of probation.

The Walton County
Housing Agency has as a


mission to serve as many el-
igible needy families as pos-
sible with designated fed-
eral funding. Ba:er states
that equally important to
him as its director is that he
be an advocate for the tax-
payer to ensure the money
is spent appropriately. Wal-
ton County Commissioner
Sara Comander said "I am
so proud that Tom Baker
and our HUD Office is look-
ing after the interest of the
people of Walton County.
No matter if it is federal tax
dollars or county taxes the
funds come from the taxpay-
ers, and our housing staff
is a good steward of those
funds."

Never, ever purchase
an ADT home security sys-
tem with authorized dealer
Secure Watch. If you read
nothing else in this column,
I hope that sticks with you.
On March 2, a team of three
salespersons came knocking
door-to-door in my neigh-
borhood. Having a small
child and a husband who
works often, I was an easy
sale. What I failed to under-
stand was this purchase was
not a direct contract with
ADT, rather with autho-
rized dealer Secure Watch
who contracts ADT to do
its monitoring and billing (I
should've stuck with my gun
and pit bull).
My husband and I spent
almost two hours discuss-
ing the terms of the contract
with the salespersons, all of
whom were cordial, helpful
and eager to put our minds
at ease about contract sur-
prises, of which we were
guaranteed there would be
none. The monthly fee would
be drafted from our account
on the exact date we chose,
in the amount specified in
the contract, all inclusive,
no additional taxes or fees.
It was to be drafted for the
remainder of March as well
as the month ahead, and we
were not to be charged again
until May. Two salespersons
left their cell phone numbers
if we had any questions. We
had three business days to
decide to return the system
with no penalty or obliga-
tion to the remainder of the
36 month contract, and 90
days during which we would
deal directly with the sales-
people and office in Panama
City, rather than pay for
service visits from the cor-
porate office.
The following day a ser-
vice technician installed the
system and while doing so
contradicted everything the
salespersons told us-from
the cost of extra equipment
right down to the number of
yard signs and decals we re-
ceived. When the first pay-
ment drafted my account
with additional taxes and
fees, we decided it wasn't a
good sign of things to come
if the technicians and sales-
people were in disagreement
and the first payment was
not charged in accordance
with our contract. "Do you
want to tell them to come
get it?" I asked. "It wouldn't
hurt my feelings," my hus-
band said. With that, we
called the salesperson, ex-


ommending boundaries that
would make districts as
nearly equal as possible in
population, based on recent-
ly-obtained data from the
2010 U.S. Census.
The public is invited to
attend meetings of the com-
mittee and provide input.
The May 4 meeting is sched-
uled to begin at 2 p.m. and
take place at the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council meeting room at the
corner of U.S. 98 and U.S.
311.

plained our dilemma, and
she promised to have her
manager call us back. No
return call. The three days
expired.
Finally, three weeks lat-
er, she returned my call. By
this time our account had
been drafted a second time
on the wrong date, with ad-
ditional taxes and fees, and
the equipment was mal-
functioning. I had danced
all around the armed mo-
tion sensor for 20 minutes
practically doing cartwheels
before it sounded. The door
sensor wasn't-working prop-
erly either.
On the phone the sales-
person was eager to please
and promised her manager
would call me that afternoon
and the problems would be
resolved immediately. The
manager never called. Af-
ter leaving more frustrated
messages, five to be exact,
a Secure Watch manager
called me, 43 days after we
initially called our salesper-
son to return the system.
This guy was the light
at the end of the tunnel, I
thought-he took our con-
cerns seriously, apologized
for the delay, promised to
correct the drafting errors,
return our money, and have
his best technician on our
doorstep the following morn-
ing. We'd set up the details
when he called back that af-
ternoon. But he never called
back, nor did he return our
calls and messages the fol-
lowing week, or the week
after.
Finally, I called the cor-
porate ADT office in Jack-
sonville, Fla. Not only did
they file a complaint with
Secure Watch on my behalf,
both representatives I spoke,
with agreed it sounded as if
the company was trying to
ride out time to make my
account permanent-an ac-
count which had no contrac-
tual obligation with ADT
because ADT had not pur-
chased it. They effectively
cancelled my ADT service
and guaranteed there would
be no termination fees with
ADT or Secure Watch con-
sidering the circumstances.
I haven't been informed
whether Secure Watch re-
sponded to the complaint,
nor have I heard from them.
I hope Secure Watch takes a
lesson from ADT on how to
conduct business, and this
column saves you from mak-
ing the same misinformed
decision I did.

Three Bars Publishing is
happy to announce the pub-
lication of a local writer's
first novel. Rickie Wood-
Bovee, a resident of Walton
County and living in the
DeFuniak Springs commu-
nity has finally, after almost
three years of writing, got-
ten her book, Button Hook
Child into print.
As Rickie said, "This is
the culmination of almost
twenty years of planning. I
first came up with the idea
while still traveling, but it
took coming here and get-
ting to know the local homes
that my ideas finally came
to fruition. Then it was just
a matter of devoting enough
time to the writing."
Button Hook Child is a
ghost story that takes place
in one of the historic Vic-
torian homes of DeFuniak
Springs. "What better place
for a ghost story than a home
that is over one hundred
years old," Rickie continued,
"and it is the first in a series
that will only be limited by
my knowledge of the his-
toric buildings in DeFuniak.
I have already started writ-


ing on my second novel."
She is also quick 'to point
out that although many
of the homes in DeFuniak
Springs have reported su-
pernatural occurrences, her
stories and characters are
figments of her imagination.
She also points out that if
you are looking for a scary,
horror tale then this book
may let you down. "I wrote
this book so that children
as young as 10 could read it
and enjoy a good read, yet is
interesting for an adult as
well," she said.
Her book is currently
available on Amazon.com or
by calling (850) 859-2187.
It is also available at The
Little Big Store and the Ho-
tel DeFuniak in DeFuniak
Springs.
A book signing will be
held on the evening of May
19, from 4-7 p.m. at the Ho-
tel DeFuniak.
Anyone interested in pur-
chasing a book may come
by and get a signed copy as
well as meet the author.

Negotiations with top county commission candidate authorized


By DOTTY NIST

Walton County Commis-
sioners have authorized
negotiations to begin with
their highest-ranked candi-
date to fill the Walton Coun-
ty administrator position.
Earlier in the month,
each commissioner had


individually interviewed
the four top candidates for
the vacant position, now
manned by Gerry Demers,
acting administrator. At
the April 26 Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) regular
meeting, each commissioner
wrote down their selections


from the field of four for ad-
ministrator, and the votes
were tallied. The candidate
receiving the most votes was
Greg Kisela, current Destin
city manager.
Ernie Padgett, former
administrator for Manatee
County, received the next
highest number of votes.


A motion was approved
authorizing Walton County
Attorney Lynn Hoshihara to
enter negotiations to bring
Kisela on board as Walton
County administrator, and
to also automatically au-
thorize negotiations with
Padgett if those with the top
candidate are not success-


ful.
Hoshihara was directed
to use salaries of county ad-
ministrators in neighboring
counties and those of previ-
ous Walton County admin-
istrators as a reference and
to proceed conservatively.
The commissioners also
voted to set a May 9 special


meeting at which the results
of the negotiations are to be
presented and at which the
BCC would be able to move
forward with hiring an ad-
ministrator. The meeting is
set to begin at 9 a.m. and
take place at the Walton
County Courthouse in De-
Funiak Springs.

Turtle Fest


set April 30


Mark the calendar for
April 30 when Turtle Watch,
the South Walton Commu-
nity Council and the Mer-
chants of Gulf Place will join
hands to host the second an-
nual "Turtle Fest" to be held
on the amphitheater at Gulf
Place located on the corner
of CR-30A and CR-393.
This is a special time set
aside not only for the cel-
ebration of the beloved sea
turtles, but to acknowledge
the incredible volunteer
spirit of the men and women
who walk the beaches and
ensure that our sea turtle
nests are safe. Enough can
not be said about their emer-
gency coalition during last
year's Gulf oil spill recovery
and relocation efforts.
The day's events will kick
off at 1 p.m. with Chuck
Lawson beating out Carib-
bean tunes on the Steele
drums to lure us into a re-
laxed coastal mood. The
crowd can stroll through a
diversity of booths by eclec-
tic ocean themed artists and
by the many local not-for-
profit groups.
Some of the activities are
geared toward kids who will
receive a "Passport" on an
incredible journey to vari-
ous activities including an
escape from a fishing net.
When all Passport ques-
tions have been checked off,
participants may expect a
"turtle goodie bag" complete
with a turtle-safe flashlight.
Paul Lowery, author of
the popular children's book,
Do You Know Where The


Sea Turtles Go?, will be
reading from his book that
is guaranteed to entertain
young and old alike. No fes-
tival is complete without art
and music and Turtle Fest is
no exception. There will be
artists selling their pottery,
jewelry, folk and fine art.
There will be a silent auc-
tion with a piece of art from
each artist to benefit Turtle
Watch and the S.W.C.C.
For those who love sea
turtles and would like to
learn how to draw one, Gar-
rett Griffis from Studio B
will be guiding participants
through a step by step tur-
tle drawing class. In addi-
tion locally renowned sand
sculpture, Mark Flynn will
be doing a sea turtle sand
sculpting demonstration.
There will be an abundance
of turtle and ocean inspired
art to dazzle your senses.
The public can purchase
Turtle Fest 2011 T shirts
with the art from the win-
ners of the elementary
school poster contest.All of
the proceeds from the sales
of the shirts will go to Turtle
Watch and The South Wal-
ton Community Council.
A local favorite, The For-
rest Williams Band are sure
to get you celebrating with
their rocking tunes and har-
monious voices beginning at
3 :30 till 6 p.m.

As the sun descends on
the horizon a parade of
turtles will say farewell for
now, and may the nesting
season begin!

Lorie Barnes for LaR-
umba Mexican Restaurant
was granted approval to use
speakers and amplifiers for
the Cinco de Mayo celebra-
tion.
A variance request was
granted to Richard D. Black
to build a 10-by-15-foot ad-
dition to an existing single
family dwelling. The re-
quired front yard setback
is 30-feet, however, the ad-
dition will encroach into the
front yard 17-feet, resulting
in a 13-foot setback.
William Deisler request-
ed a front yard setback from
30-feet to 19.24-feet to make
the three-car garage in his
back yard a separate single
family residential unit.
Additionally, Deisler uses
the south side driveway to
access the property, but to
obtain a 911- address need-
ed an easement granted on
the north side of his prop-
erty for emergency vehicles
to pass. Deisler's neighbors,
the Hayslips, and their at-
torney Lori Bytell, said they
were "not in opposition," but
because the north side ac-
cess ran by their bedroom
window, they wanted access
granted on the south side
of Deisler's property, which
Bytell noted was a "less in-
trusive... suitable alterna-
tive." Diesler explained the
south side property line did
not run straight back and
was not wide enough for
emergency vehicles to pass.
According to Deisler, Fire
Chief Coley previously vis-
ited the property and con-
firmed the north side.access
was sufficient for emergency
vehicles and a 911-address.
Deisler told the Council he
does not now, and would not
in the future use the north
side access to reach his
property, but simply needed
the easement to establish an
address. "I find it very chal-
lenging and complicating to


be here again, [paying for
another] $722 building per-
mit, $450 variance request,
and $3,400 in impact fees
and tap fees [for a garage I
built and obtained permits
for in 2002]...all I want to do
is hang some sheetrock and
put doors on it," he said.
Wayne Hayslip told the
Council, "I'm not trying to
do anything to stop him from
doing what he desires with
his property...but I strongly
oppose when my neighbor
can do something to infringe
upon my rights to the enjoy-
ment of my property."
The motion to deny the
variance request, which was
recommended for approv-
al by the planning board,
passed five-to-zero.
"I want to know how I'm
going to get denied a vari-
ance on property I own out-
right?" Deisler asked. "Am
I going to get my fees re-
turned?"
City Attorney Clayton Ad-
kinson confirmed Deisler's
impact fees would have to
be refunded. The motion to
refund the fees carried five-
to-zero.
In a phone interview with
The Herald the following
day, Deisler said,
"I am a little surprised by
the outcome of all this. The
variance had nothing to do
with the access to it, that's
what I don't understand."
Regarding the variance,
he added, "If they wanted
30-feet, I had 30 feet to give
them, the existing govern-
ment never even asked for
30 feet in 2002, they asked
for 20 feet."
"I'm going to consult with
attorneys and see what they
decide to do...Florida stat-
utes say they can't stop me
from having access to [my
property]...Never would I
have imagined this would


be so challenging," he said.
The amendment to allow
seasonal sponsorship signs
stating a sponsoring busi-
ness's name at Harbeson
Field and Gene Hurley Park
passed four-to-one, Work
yielding a nay.
The amendment to allow
a permanent identification/
information sign on single
and multi-tenant buildings,
therefore forbidding tem-
porary real estate signs,
passed unanimously, as did
the stormwater manage-
ment amendment which
stipulated such changes
as, "Removal of vegetation
or filling may be permit-
ted in [drainageways] pro-
vided that: natural vegeta-
tion is preserved or native
vegetations is installed on
the remaining 50 percent
described in (f)2 above; the
resultant new or modified
drainageway reduces run-
off velocity to less than that
preexisting or stream bank
erosion is reduced by the
addition of erosion control
measures."
After winning one free
year of web hosting from
CivicPlus last year, the
Council unanimously de-
cided to continue with Civ-
icPlus's basic hosting for
$180/month. The Council
rejected the more expensive
options, which included a
one-time fee of $2,000 for a
custom banner and access to
bid postings and online job
applications.
Election managers for the
May 3 run-off between Huff-
man and Kermit Wright
were appointed: Kirby, Hol-
loway, Sara Bowers, and
Jonathan King.
The Florida Gas Utility
amended interlocal agree-
ment was adopted three-to-
two, Kelley and Work oppos-
ing. According to Kirby, "The


amendments expanded the
category of FGU member
votes based on a combination
of each member's pipeline
capacity and through-put. If
amendments are approved
by all members this will re-
sult in the city of DeFuniak
Springs increasing from two
votes to three votes, and the
membership as a whole in-
creasing from 52 to 98 votes.
Also, the amendments in-
clude a provision to have
three alternate members
of the executive committee,
rather than one single alter-
nate. Alternate members of
the executive committee, of
which there shall be three,
will fill a vacancy on the
committee if a member or
members of the committee
are unavailable to serve for
a particular meeting, in the
order of priority designated
by the board. Additionally
a provision for conducting
meetings by electronic com-
munications [is included]."
An airport fee schedule
was established, listing
prices for hangar space, tie-
downs, parking, after-hours
service fees, and products
such as prist, oil, JET-A and
AVGAS.
CH2MHILL was nomi-
nated for the Florida League
of Cities Associate Member
of the Year.
Financial Director Sara
Bowers received ratification
of all bills paid and approval
to pay bills in order. Work,
who had not seen a revenue
and expenditure report,
commented that is why he
did not have any questions
at the moment. "Well I'm
sure if you do, you'll come
see me," Bowers said.
"Yep," Work replied.
In closing comments, the
Council members welcomed
Kelley and Work. Work said
all of his comments were for
the May 9 meeting.


"All of these properties have access to [their back yards] through the north side. I don't
see why my house should be an exception," Billy Deisler said after a variance and easement
on his property was denied on the basis it could disrupt the adjacent neighbors'--the Hay-
slips-- enjoyment to their property.

By ALICIA LEONARD

A sunny Saturday morn-
ing around Lake DeFuniak
proved to be the perfect spot
for the Third Annual Cov-
enant Hospice Easter Egg
Hunt.
Little girls in their Easter
finest and young men with
candy on their mind, found
themselves face to face with
the Easter Bunny to get the
festivities started after a
sing-along and an opening
prayer led by Carolyn Wil-
liams.
Soon after, a hula-hoop
contest was in full swing.
Kids of all ages joined in
and were awarded prizes ac-
cording to audience appre-
ciation. After all the hoop-
ing was over, the bunny hop
had everyone hopping here
and there and all over the
place.
It was then time for the
egg hunt with kids of dif-
ferent ages being grouped
together to give the little
ones more of a chance to find
some eggs. Kids scurried
over the grounds around the
amphitheater, searching for
the Easter eggs that held a
special award, to then turn
in for a prize.
A little before noon, a spe-
cial memorial ceremony was

ties. The egg hunts started
at 10:30 a.m. and consisted
of three age groups. Over
10,000 eggs, many stuffed
animals and dozens of board
games were laid out for the
children to take home. Free-
port fire and rescue person-
nel do most of the prepara-
tion for the day's activities
which are well worth it,
according to Fire Chief Ben
Greenslait.
"We are so happy every-
one came out to enjoy this


beautiful day," said Green-
slait. "This event is all about
kids and recognizing the
Easter holiday. It does not
matter who you are, where
you come from or how much
money you have, we want
people to enjoy themselves.
We are not perfect, but this
event is getting better and
better every year."
Fifteen vendors from as
far away as Dothan, Ala.,
served up snow cones and
lunch to the estimated 2,500


attendees. Pony rides and a
tumbling exhibition were
also well attended. Ticket
sales for the car show raf-
fle will help fund fall and.
Christmas events.
"I am very pleased with
the way things have worked
out for today's Easter cel-
ebration," said Freeport
Mayor Mickey Marse. "Chief
Greenslait ard his crew
have done a wonderful job
organizing this event. I hope
everyone had fun today."

Freeport High School hosts 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking contest


TROPICANA SIXTH-GRADE WINNERS


TROPICANA FIFTH-GRADE WINNERS


Story and photos by
JEFFREYPOWELL
Since 1969, Tropicana
has supported the 4-H
Tropicana Public Speaking
Program, an educational
program aimed at teaching
young people the techniques
of effective public speaking.
It is taught by classroom
teachers and is incorporated
into the established teach-
er lesson plan. In Walton
County over 1,500 students
from the fourth, fifth and
sixth grades participated in
this year's contest. Repre-
sentatives from each grade
level gathered at Freeport
High School on Thursday
night April 21 for their final
speech of the year.
"The 4-H motto is learn
by doing," said 4-H agent
Suzanne Wilson as she
opened the evening's pro-
gram. "And that is exactly
what all of these students
are doing. It can be scary
speaking before a public au-
dience and I want these stu-
dents to know there is more
to life than just winning a
contest. By participating
they have proven they are
all winners."
Each of the 35 students
that participated in the con-
test presented a prepared
speech which was to be more
than two minutes long and
not to exceed three minutes.
The topics of the speeches
were as varied as the stu-
dents themselves.
Fourth-grade winners
were first place Lauren Wil-
liams, second place Elise
Fogg and third place MacK-
enzie Brundage. Katherine
Hoobler received the Honor-
able Mention award, Sakara


Runge received the Most
Informative award, Mada-
lyn Kish received the Most
Entertaining Award and
Jonathan Jones the Most
Persuasive Award.
Fifth-grade winners were
first place Paige Howell, sec-
ond place Jordan Campbell
and third place Ellie John-
son. Aric Hilley received the
Honorable Mention award,
Ally Woodard received the
Most Informative award,
Daniel Leuze received the
Most Entertaining award
and Ellie Johnson received
the Most Persuasive award.
Sixth-grade winners were
first place Nick Trodd, sec-
ond place Cade Supple, and
third place Summer Padgett.
Monica Duque received the
Honorable Mention award,
Conner Duncan recieved the
Most Informative award,
Coryni McKee the Most En-
tertaining award and Nick
Trodd the Most Persuasive
award.
SCountywide, seven el-
ementary and four middle
schools participated in the
event. The fourth and fifth
grades had 1,150 students
to enter and 441 sixth-grad-
ers participated.
"I would like to thank
everyone that had a part in
this," said Wilson. "Tropi-
cana provides all the awards
and this could not be done
without all our volunteers.
I also want to thank to-
night's emcees Mike Mor-
ris and Rhonda Skipper.
Most importantly though
we hope these students will
come away from this expe-
rience with a skill that will
help them throughout their
lives."

Dear Auntie Em,
Recently a pastor was
telling me about his good
fortune. Apparently the
church he serves provides
him a credit card for travel
expenses; this pastor places
charges on the credit card
and the bill is then mailed
to and paid by the church.
It seems the rebates on the
credit card had been accu-
mulating for a number of
years and the credit card
company called to inquire
as to the options to take
cash or a credit against the
bill. The company represen-
tative spoke to the pastor
who indicated he elected to
take the cash and a check
should be made payable to
him, thus taking the posi-
tion that since the. credit
card paid for his expenses,
he was entitled to the $500
cash. He received the $500
and put it towards personal
use.
I was surprised how easi-
ly this individual could take
the position such money was
his. It apparently did not
even cross his mind these
funds might be a benefit to
the church, which paid the
bills. While legally these
funds might belong to this
individual, I take the posi-
tion that morally the funds
were not his. My opinion of
this individual is presently
very low. Is my judgment
too harsh?

Confused in Crestview

Dear Confused,
My short answer is no,
your judgment is not too
harsh, but let's remember
what the Good Book tells
us about judging others,
before you take your feel-


ings and permanently al-
low them residence in your
heart. Now, here's my long
answer.
I almost always, except
when I am really running
short on temperament, try
to place myself in another's
position when they behave
in a way that disturbs me
or causes me to feel disap-
pointment in their behavior.
In this case, I asked myself
if my employer gave me a
company card, and when
it came time to refund the
points, what would I do?
Well, I would have to re-
spond by referring the card
company to my boss, or told
them I would have to re-
turn their call as this was
an expense account card
and needed to find out my
employer's preference. I be-
lieve in doing what is right
in my heart, and only last
week, notified my employer
they had overpaid me by
$18. Why? Well, not only be-
cause my momma raised me
right, although it is the first
reason, but because I feel
valued by my employer and
they treat me like a member
of a family, not just an em-
ployee. They and the people
I work with have my loyalty,
and that's something money
can't buy, at least not for
me.
My point being, even
when good people, people we
respect, don't feel valued, it
is my opinion that these is-
sues open them up to be-
havior that they would not
usually partake in. I have a
feeling that the pastor knows
that is not his money, but he
feels entitled to it, because
he feels shorted somewhere
else. When we feel shorted,
we find ways to put a balm


over that pain and whether
it be pens and office sup-
plies or a bonus from a card
company, employees some-
times behave in bad ways to
get back at the people who
they feel "owe" them some-
thing. Not to mention the
society we live in pushes
money over everything else,
and that can cause even the
most faithful to stray some-
times.
My advice to you is un-
derstand the pastor is hu-
man and humans always
find a way to mess some-
thing up, that's where the
being human part comes in.
Realize that may be this is
a blessing and maybe this
person needs to be support-
ed, but not put on a pedestal
because of his job title. He
told you this information for
a reason, instead of telling
you his good fortune, maybe
subconsciously he needed to
confess, whether he realized
it or not. My main advice to
you is pray for him, ask God
for guidance with your dis-
appointment and remember
he is human, just like you
and me. Good luck and God
bless you.

Countless are the reasons .
that you became our friend,
Now that you have left us 7
our memories will never end.
Born on Halloween,
and leaving on Easter day,
our heart will be with you
as you go on Heavens way.
When troubles were all around
and paths the soul must tread,
you walked along with God
through the storms He led.
How good it was for awhile
to have a friend like you,
May angels bear you up to Him
to live your life anew.

BY RONNIE MCBRAYER


When my wife decided
to clean our children's fish
aquarium with a dose of an-
ti-fungus agent, I thought
that was a good idea. Less of
the green slime in the tank
is a good plan if you ask me.
But when she medicated the
water with ten times the
recommended dose, things
didn't go as well as she had
hoped.
See, in her eagerness to
rid the pet fishes' world of
contamination, she misread
the box and misapplied the
remedy. The algae-killing
concoction was not for a lit-
tle one gallon tank like ours.
It was for the treatment of
ten gallons.
We didn't know there was
a problem until the next
morning when we found
four goldfish half-scuttled
at the top of the tank beg-
ging for air. Thankfully, we
intervened with a successful
rescue operation just before
our beloved pets went to the
great fishbowl in the sky.
My wife's zeal was a
prime example of how too
much of a good thing can be-
come toxic rather than being
helpful; not unlike religion.
Don't bristle at such a state-
ment. Hear me out.
When it comes to the
practice of faith, such prac-
tice is like a pharmaceutical.
Within it, there is the power
to heal and restore, or there
is the power to consume and
destroy. It can be a remedy
for the soul's ills, or it can be
deadly poison, for the prac-
titioner and everyone he or
she encounters.
Maybe this was what
Jesus was getting at when


he warned his disciples:
"Beware of the yeast of the
Pharisees and Sadducees"
(Matthew 16)! The Phari-
sees and Sadducees were
religious zealots consumed
with rituals, sacred proto-
cols, and proper ceremo-
nies.
Certainly these people
had good and worthy inten-
tions: They wanted to please
God and see others do the
same. Yet, their application
of the product was over the
top. Jesus would say later,
"They crush people with un-
bearable religious demands
and never lift a finger to
ease the burden. They shut
the door of the Kingdom of
Heaven in people's faces"
(Matthew 23).
Yes, what the Pharisees
and Sadducees wanted was
virtuous. But all their pas-
sion and enthusiasm left
those around them floating
belly-up, begging for air and
mercy. And as certain as
their zeal is their legacy; the
religious zealot lingers well
into the twenty-first centu-
ry, giving ten-gallon treat-
ments to every one gallon he
or she encounters.
The Pharisee of today
doesn't walk the hills of
Judea, as in Jesus' time. He
is a Bible-thumping televan-
gelist with a list of dos-and-
don't as long as your arm
and as heavy as millstone,
angry as hell itself at those
to whom he preaches.
He is the radical cleric
who seems to have heard
God's final and complete
word for humanity, a word
that is as fixed as concrete
and leads to nothing but op-


Holies.

pression and injustice. She
is the entrenched church-
goer whose biblical inter-
pretations are as stuck and
stuffed as she is. No mercy,
no grace, no second-chances,
no reprieves: Quite frankly,
nothing like Jesus.
To those struggling to
breathe beneath the over-
dose of ritual and inflexibil-
ity Jesus said, "Come to me,
all of you who are weary and
carry heavy burdens, and I
will give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you. Let me teach
you, because I am humble
and gentle at heart, and you
will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy to bear,
and the burden I give you is
light" (Matthew 11).
So what about those of
us who bear the Christian
name? What do we offer the
heavy leaden? Do we extend
the invitation of the gentle,
loving Christ who held rest
in his hand, or do we dish
out more and more obliga-
tion, attempting to antisep-
ticise and cleanse the lives
of others until they can't
breathe?
I agree: People would live
healthier, more whole, spiri-
tual lives with a little less

THE


SHIPWRECK


The only survivor of a
shipwreck was washed up
on a small, uninhabited is-
land. He prayed feverishly
for God to rescue him, and
every day he scanned the
horizon for help, but none
seemed forthcoming.
Exhausted, he eventually
managed to build a little hut
out of driftwood to protect
him from the elements and
to store his few possessions.
But then one day, after scav-
enging for food, he arrived

A Sure Cute
Three Pastors in the
south were having lunch ir
a diner.
One said "Ya know, since
summer started I've beer
having trouble with bats ir
my loft and attic at church
I've tried everything--noise
spray, cats--nothing seemE
to scare them away."
Another said "Yea, mE
too. I've got hundreds liv
ing in my belfry and in thE
narthex attic. I've even ha
the place fumigated, an
they won't go away."
The third said, "I bap
tized all mine, and mad
them members of th
church... Haven't seen on
back since!!!"


home to find his little hut in
flames, the smoke rolling up
to the sky.
The worst had happened;
everything was lost. He was
stunned with grief and an-
ger. "God, how could you do
this to me!" he cried.
Early the next day, how-
ever, he was awakened by
the sound of a ship that
was approaching the island.
It had come to rescue him.
"How did you know I was
here?" asked the weary man
of his rescuers. "We saw
your smoke signal,"-they re-
plied.

It is easy to get discour-
aged when things are go-


Rev. Dr. G. Charles Satter-
white, Pastor
ing badly. But we shouldn't
lose heart, because God is
at work in our lives, even in
the midst of pain and suffer-
ing. Remember, next time
your little hut is burning to
the ground--it just may be a
smoke signal that summons
The Grace of God.


Mark 12:33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and
with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important
than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.

South Walton closes regular season with 4-3 win against Freeport


By REID TUCKER
South Walton squeaked
by Freeport to take a 4-3 win
on senior night thanks to a
homer from Jansen Infinger
in the fourth and a two-run
single from Alex Astin an
inning later.
Freeport's three runs all
came at once, and on a home
run at that. Dakota Davis
crushed one over the center
field fence to bring himself
home, plus two others. The
Bulldogs (10-10) had a good
look at tying the game in
the seventh with a man on
third but a short infield hit


quelled the comeback shot.
Both teams were rela-
tively quiet at the plate
on Thursday, April 21, a
credit to the pitchers of the
clubs. In fact, the Seahawks'
Mitchell Peterson gave up
five hits, just one shy of the
Bulldogs' Michael Graziani's
six, though Peterson struck
out eight batters to his op-
ponent's five, recording the
win in the process. Tanner
Degafferelly finished up the
game for South Walton (15-
10) by pitching through the
final inning with one K, one
walk and one hit allowed.


Outside of the evening's
big hits, South Walton's
Austin Woodard went 2-for-
3 with a pair of single and a
double while Freeport's Aus-
tin Woodard had a brace of
singles and Brandon Head
reached on a double.

Freeport coach Shaun
Arntz said Peterson's cre-
dentials (some 250-plus
strikeouts in his four-year
career) were of obvious con-
cern, especially since he
feared his players were leav-
ing hits at the plate. Even as
Peterson's arm slowed down


in the latter innings, the
Bulldogs still seemed un-
able to touch him and Arntz
counted that as the main
reason for the loss.
"I doubt that South Wal-
ton looked at five strikes to-
night whereas we probably
looked at 15," Arntz said. "I
think that's the big differ-
ence. They didn't get behind
in the count and we stepped
into the box thinking we
don't have to get hits. We
left stuff on the plate and
they didn't. They came to
hit and we came to wait for
a pitch."


Braves Fall to Bay 3-1


By PATRICK CASEY
Kevin Husum pitched a
complete game four-hitter
as Panama City Bay scored
three runs in the bottom of
the sixth inning to pull out
a 3-1 victory over the Wal-
ton Braves in the first game
of the District 1, Class 3A
tournament in Chipley on
Monday.
Walton held a 1-0 lead af-
ter scoring a run in the top of
the sixth inning as Stephen
Murphy and Angus Ander-
son singled and moved up a
base after a wild pitch to put
runners at second and third.
Brendan Leach struck out
but Brandon Hollingsworth
provided an RBI groundout
to third base to give Walton
the lead.
Bay quickly responded as
Alex Hayes drew a walk with
Husum providing a single to
move Hayes to third. Mi-
chael Luing then dribbled
a single between first and
second that plated Hayes to
tie the game. Angus Ander-
son got the next batter to hit
back to the pitcher's mound
while holding the runners at
second and third. Tornadoes


catcher Matt Koyn provided
the key at-bat in the game
as his chopper to Alex Brack
was fired home to catcher
Liam Miller in an attempt
to nail pinch-runner Logan
Pledger at the plate. Pledg-
er was ruled safe to the dis-
may of Braves fans as Bay
took a 2-1 lead. The Torna-
does pushed across another
run on a double steal before
sophomore Brennon Orcutt
came on in relief to strike
out the next two batters to
end the inning.
Husum closed the door in
the.top of the seventh inning
as he set down the Braves in
order to end Walton's season
with a 13-10 record.
Stephen Murphy had two
of Walton's four hits in the
contest. Angus Anderson
had a single and deserved
a better fate on the mound
as he struck out eight bat-
ters in 5 1/3 innings of work
while walking two and giv-
ing up six hits.
Team Notes: The game
was delayed for 25 minutes
due to lightning in the bot-
tom of the third inning. Bay
took two of the three games


played between the two
teams in 2011. The game
was the final contest for se-
niors Liam Miller, Stephen
Murphy and Brandon Hol-
lingsworth. Walton will lose
Chipley and both Panama
City schools from their dis-
trict next year as Marianna
and Pensacola Catholic will


be their only two district
foes in 2012. Walton will re-
turn all three of their start-
ing pitchers but must im-
prove their hitting to climb
out of the cellar in district
play. Walton's 13-10 record
gave them a winning mark
for the season for the first
time since 1997.


However, the Seahawks
were in no better shape
through the first four in-
nings, as, after getting a
single in the first that went
nowhere, their bats fell si-
lent too. Three South Wal-
ton batters made contact
to deep center field in the
fourth inning, but only the
third, smacked by Degaffer-
elly, bounced off the fence
for a single. Infinger then
smashed his homerun over
the fence just left of center,
which brought both he and
Degafferelly around to make
the game 2-0 SoWal.
Astin got a two-RBI sin-
gle in the fifth to put the Se-
ahawks up by four, but then
came Davis' own three-run
homer in the sixth inning
to close the gap. However, it
proved to be insufficient and
South Walton held on for
the win.
Every one of the past four


a


meetings between Free-
port and the Seahawks has
been settled 4-3, said South
Walton head coach Nick
Borthwick. The two teams
are now officially split,
with each club taking a win
in the preseason and one
win apiece going into their
separate district tourneys.
Borthwick, a class of '98
Freeport grad, said the win,
with its colossal hits at criti-
cal times, was something
that "just seemed meant to
be."
"We struggled to get hits
against Walton and Arnold
but hopefully we got the
monkey off our back tonight
with the big hits," Borth-
wick said. "We've been-hav-
ing opportunities and we
just haven't gotten it done
but tonight we did."
Both teams are seeded
fourth in their respective
districts.

Jackets (15-11) racked up
10 hits to their opponents'
six on the way to an 8-2
victory in the first round of
the District 2-2A tourna-
ment on Monday. While the
Seahawks (15-11) pitched
Alex Astin, Tanner Degaf-
ferelly and, finally Mitchell
Peterson, the Jackets relied
solely on Shaun Herbert,
who had six strikeouts and
four walks over the seven-
inning contest. South Wal-
ton coach Nick Borthwick
said he planned to hold off
on using Peterson until a
playoff game against Hol-
mes County, but the knowl-
edge that more and more of
Vernon's batters were com-
ing around on the first two
pitchers forced his hand.
"We were thinking we
could scrap it out and beat
them with our number-two
and number-three pitchers
and then come back with our
number one against Boni-
fay," Borthwick said. "Still,
I would do the same thing if
I had to do it over again."
The Seahawks expected a
tough game, having lost 3-2
to Vernon on the road and
won 6-4 at home, but the
frenetic pace at the plate
set early by the Jackets was
simply too much for them.
Vernon scored on an RBI
single from Josh Zurika in
the top of the first inning
and a wild pitch enabled
Bryce Farrar to put another
run in the books.
SSouth Walton, who played
as the home team due to
their higher initial seeding
in the tournament, made it
a 2-1 ballgame in the bottom
of the second when Chaz
Johnisee drove in J.R. Lov-
ing. The Seahawks tied the
game an inning later, load-
ing the bases in the process,
after the first three batters
of the order reached on a
double and two singles. That


was as close as they'd get in
the game though, as Dylan
Lee poled a homer bver the
right field fence and Caleb
Coppedge scored on a wild
pitch four batters later.
It looked like the Sea-
hawks might take the lead
in the fifth thanks to loaded
bases, but a force-out at the
plate and a double play, the
first of Vernon's two in the
game, doused any midgame
comeback attempt from
South Walton. The Jackets
drove home the point by
adding a staggering four
runs (only one of which was
unearned) in the sixth in-
ning in spite of two pitching
changes from the Seahawks.
The score did not change in
Vernon's two remaining at-
bats and, after three routine
throw downs in the bottom
of seven, the Yellow Jackets
walked away with the 8-2
win.
South Walton's six hits
comprised five singles and a
double but none of the team's
batters had more than one
hit to his credit. The Sea-
hawks' best performer on
offense was Peterson, who
claimed the double and also
scored one of the team's
runs. Lee was Vernon's best
weapon of the game, as the
senior went 3-for-4 with a
home run and two singles
while team mate Hunter
Dobbs scored a quarter of
the Jackets' runs.
Borthwick said South
Walton had plenty of oppor-
tunities to even up the score,
but a few big plays by Ver-
non and a spotty showing at
the plate is what ultimately
cost his team the loss.
"We had the bases load-
ed twice but then [Vernon]
turned two double plays,"
Borthwick said. "That's a
tough thing to overcome.
They had some guys step
up and get some big hits.
We didn't get those big hits


when we needed them but
those are the breaks. It's a


tough way to end a good sea-
son."


Region 1, Class 2A Track Meet at
Jacksonville Bolles (April 21)

South Walton saw five of its athletes earn the top four
finishes necessary to advance to the Class 2A state track
meet in Winter Park on Saturday, April 30 during the April
21 Region 1, Class 2A meet at Jacksonville Bolles. Three
did so by breaking school records in the process.
Brittany Crittenden won the long jump with a school-
record distance of 17-9.5 and also qualified for state in
the 200-meter dash, finishing second with a time of 25.36.
Heather Anderson also qualified for the state meet, taking
third in the pole vault.
South Walton's Jacob Leuze placed second in the
3,200-meter run with a school-record time of 9:57 while
teammate Chris Sanders set a new school mark in the long
jump with a distance of 22-6.5, good for fourth on the day.
Corey Short qualified in the pole vault for South Walton,
which will send five athletes to state.
Walton's Tray Williams qualified for state by taking sec-
ond in the 100-meter dash as he was barely edged out by
Taylor County's Lachaddrick Ellis for the Region title. Wil-
liams turned in a time of 10.67 after running .a 10.75 in
prelims. Williams captured the District 1, Class 2A title in
the same event at Panama City Bay.

Sports News and Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
Freeport defeated Ponce
de Leon in the first round
of the District 1, Class 2A
baseball tournament in Jay
19-0 on Monday afternoon as
Collin Myrick threw a one-
hitter-in picking up the vic-
tory for the Bulldogs. Free-
port must defeat Northview
on April 26 to earn a playoff
berth. The Bulldogs are 11-
10 on the year.
In order to try and save
money, Gulf County has ap-
proved a plan to consolidate
middle schools with high
schools. The result in athlet-
ics means that Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka will not
be able to field junior var-
sity squads and are likely to
have several sports cut. It
also means, like Paxton and
Ponce de Leon locally, that
they may have a seventh or
eighth-grader turn up on a
varsity roster in baseball,
softball or basketball. While
the varsity sports should
continue to be competitive,
the development of young
talent that filters up to the
varsity programs may take
a hit at some point in the fu-
ture.
The Florida State men's
track team rallied from 19.5
points back, while the Clem-
son women built upon their
21.5 point day-two lead to
claim the team titles at the
2011 Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence Outdoor Track & Field
Championships, which were
held at Wallace Wade Stadi-
um on the campus of Duke
University in Durham, N.C.
It marks the sixth consecu-
tive men's championship for
the Seminoles and eighth
overall. Six of those have
come under head coach Bob
Braman. The Tigers have
now clinched two straight
titles and four overall. Two
have come under head coach
Lawrence Johnson.
The Florida men's tennis
team capped a magnificent
run through the SEC Tour-
nament on Sunday with a
4-0- victory overI-Kenttueky-:
at Linder Stadium at Ring
Tennis Complex to claim
the championship. It com-
pleted a run of four victories

against second-seeded Ten-
nessee in women's tennis as
the Gators won the South-

ment on Sunday afternoon
at Barksdale Stadium on
the University of Tennes-
see campus. The postseason
championship is the Ga-
tor's 17th SEC Tournament
title in the 24-year history
of the event. With Florida's
men's team winning its re-
spective SEC Tournament
championship on Sunday, it
marked the third time ever
that both of the school's ten-
nis programs captured the
league tournament title in
the same season, also claim-
ing both events in 2000 and
2005.

en's tennis team (15-7, 10-4)
magical run towards their
first ever ACC Champion-
ship ended in heartbreaking
defeat to No. 5 North Caro-
lina (22-5, 11-2) on Sunday,
April 24 at the Cary Ten-
nis Center. The Seminoles,
who began the tournament
as the five seed and one of
seven ACC teams ranked in-
side the ITA's top 20, won a
season's best eight matches
before having their winning
streak snapped by the Tar
Heels as they lost 4-3.
The Alabama baseball
team dropped the final
game of a three-game series
to No. 5 ranked Florida by a
final score of 2-1 on Sunday
from McKethan Stadium.
Following the weekend se-


ries sweep by the Gators,
the Crimson Tide falls to 25-
18 overall and 8-10 in SEC
play, while the Gators im-
proved to 31-10 and 14-4 in
conference play.
For the second game in
a row the Florida Gators
rallied late to defeat the
Alabama softball team, 3-2,
Sunday afternoon at Katie
Seashole Pressly Stadium.
The Gators (40-8, 15-7 SEC)
scored two in the eighth and
added another in the ninth
to secure the series victory.
SAfter the loss, the Crimson
Tide moves to 42-7 overall
and 16-6 in SEC play.

Paxton basketball players and coach honored


Paxton basketball play-
ers Krysten Cuchens and
Shaq Jackson and girls bas-
ketball Coach Steve Wil-
liams were honored when
they received recognition
from the All Sports Associa-
tion as Players and Coach of
the Year, respectively. All
Sports Association member
Dick Cannon recently vis-
ited Paxton High to present
the awards in front of an as-
sembly of students.
Krysten Cuchens was
a leader for the Bobcats
as they captured a sev-


enth-straight District 1-A
crown. Cuchens averaged 14
points, five assists, and four
steals a game. Williams said
her stats weren't gaudy but
she scored, she controlled
the ball, she rebounded, she
defended and her assist to
turnover ratio was excep-
tional. Williams said her
"will to win is just unbeliev-
able."
Shaq Jackson was a rangy
one-man wrecking crew for
the Bobcats this year, aver-
aging 27 points and 12 re-
bounds a game. Jackson re-


cently played in the Florida
North-South All Star Game
in Daytona Beach where
he was named Most Valu-
able Player for the North
Team. Jackson has recently
signed a basketball scholar-
ship with Northwest Florida
State College.

Williams led the Bobcats
this year to their seventh
consecutive district cham-
pionship and their 27th
straight winning season and
was honored as Girls Bas-
ketball Coach of the Year.


Softball Teams Eliminated


By PATRICK CASEY
Area 5 softball teams
began play last week in a
multitude of district tour-
naments as they worked
to continue their seasons
with state playoff berths in
2011. Unfortunately, none
of the area teams survived
the semi-finals with three
squads losing their opening
round games.
South Walton came the
closest to picking up a play-
off berth as they lost a 2-1
game to Sneads in the Dis-
trict 2, Class 2A semi-finals
in a contest played in Boni-
fay at Holmes County High
School.
South Walton put a run on
the board in the first inning
as Caitlin Holliday reached
on an error and later scored
on a double-steal attempt
as Sneads second baseman
Kayla Rabon threw the ball
over catcher DeAnne Ber-
ry's head to allow Holliday
to score.
The Seahawks held the
lead until the top of the fifth
inning when the Pirates
put together their only two
runs of the contest. Ashlen
Wilson singled with Kayla
Kelly adding a double after
a strikeout to put runners
on second and third base
with one out. Karissa Childs
hit the ball to leftfield where
the softball glanced off Lacy
Littlefield's glove to allow
runners to move up and tie
the game at 1-1. An infield
single loaded the bases be-


fore a pop-up by Cambraige
Cason turned into a force
play at second base with
Kelly scoring the go-ahead'
run.

That was all Sneads would
need as Childs allowed only
one runner to reach base the
rest of the way. The Chipola-
signee threw only 82 pitches
in the contest with 66 going
for strikes.
The Seahawks could not
put a runner on base in the
last two innings with Sneads
claiming the win after los-
ing both regular season con-
tests.
South Walton won the
opening round game over
Graceville 18-3 as the Ti-
gers struggled with their
pitching and defense in los-
ing to the Seahawks for the
third time in 2011. Caitlin
Holliday had three hits and
Courtney Wright drove in
three runs in that victory.
Ponce de Leon was the
only other softball team to
win an opening round con-
test as they defeated Free-
port in the first game of the
District 1, Class 2A event by
a score of 12-1. The Pirates
jumped out to a 5-0 lead af-
ter one inning of play and
kept piling on the runs until
they ended the contest after
five innings due to the 10-
run rule.
The Pirates could not du-
plicate the magic the second

Walton saw their season

loss to Panama City Arnold
in the first round of the Dis-
trict 1, Class 3A tournament
in Marianna while Paxton
lost their opening round
contest to Rocky Bayou 7-4
to end their season.
Season Notes: Walton fin-
ished the year at 8-14 and
shows promise heading into
a three-team district next
year that will feature Mari-
anna and Pensacola Catho-
lic. The Bulldogs will be the
favorite but Walton will be
able to compete with a Cru-
saders squad that struggled
to find wins in 2011. Camille
Cosson had a good freshman
year on the mound and the
Braves should be able to
build some depth with more
players coming in from
the middle school program
which had a very heavy ros-
ter this season.
Paxton struggled to a 4-15
mark a year after winning
the district and will have
to replace departing senior
pitcher Kappi Stewart. The
Bobcats were young in the
field and injuries did not
help them garner many vic-
tories in 2011. Rocky Bayou
will be replaced by Malone
in district play next season
as this district should be
wide open in 2012.
Freeport suffered through
a 4-19 campaign in 2011 and
lost several players on the
roster due to a variety of cir-
culnstances during the sea-
son. Help is on the way from
the middle school but the
Bulldogs have their work
cut out for them as Chipley
and Holmes County move
into the district with Jay,
Baker and Northview for
the next two years. Coach
Charles Trotman's job did
not get easier with that dis-
trict slate.
Ponce de Leon will miss
departing seniors Hillary
Harper, Sha-Lea Yates and
Allie Rushing next season
but will have pitcher Ma-
rissa Powell back and a
line-up that hit the ball well
at the end of the year. Tim
Alford led the team to a 14-
10 record as the head coach
in 2011 as the Pirates will
move into District 3 next
year and have to face the
likes of Graceville, Cotton-
dale, Sneads, Vernon, Altha
and Wewahitchka. The Pi-
rates will face more travel
than they did the last two
years with Sneads the favor-
ite to start the 2012 season.

South Walton saw their
streak of playoff berths come
to an end in a tough 2-1 loss
to Sneads last week. Coach
Phil Tisa's squad will miss
lead-off hitter and center-
fielder Caitlin Holliday next
season as well as depart-
ing shortstop Sam Snider.
The Seahawks should have
Meagan Ellison back on
the mound as the freshman
pitched the team to a 14-9
record in her first year as a
starter for the school. The
Seahawks will spend a lot of
time on a bus as they move
into District 4 where they
will have to face Port St.
Joe, Liberty County, Frank-
lin County, West Gadsden,
Bozeman and Blountstown.
This will be a very tough
district with Liberty Coun-
ty, Bozeman and Port St.
Joe battling for the top spot
with the Seahawks.

Scientist focusing on


long-term ecosystem


impacts of oil spill


By DOTTY NIST
An area scientist assured
community members that
the Panhandle "didn't get
serious environmental deg-
radation" from the BP Deep-
water Horizon oil spill. He
did express concern about
unusual biological signs
now showing up in marine
life in the gulf and about po-
tential long-term impacts of
the spill on marine species.
Dr. Richard Synder of the
University of West Florida's
(UWF) Center for Environ-
mental Diagnostics and
Bioremediation (CEDB) was
the featured speaker at an
April 19 public forum hosted
by the South Walton Com-
munity Council (SWCC) at
the Coastal Branch Library.
Snyder was one of the


first scientists to begin re-
search and monitoring on
local beaches in response to
the oil spill. In May 2010 he
became a lead researcher
for an Oil Spill Academic
Task Force established as
a partnership of 15 Florida
universities.
"Oil is a natural part of
the marine environment,"
Snyder told attendees at
the April 19 forum. He ex-
plained that there are many.
natural oil seeps in the gulf
which release the substance
slowly and that naturally-
occurring microbes con-
sume it. However, massive
amounts of oil may exceed
the natural systems' pro-
cessing ability, he noted.
Snyder said toxic polycy-
clic aromatic hydrocarbons

da's Center for Environmental Diagnostics and Bioremedia-
tion. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


(PAHs) found in oil were one
of the things that scientists
had been most apprehen-
sive about with the oil spill.
He explained that PAHs are
lighter molecules that are
the,first to come out of oil
during the refining process
and that heavy asphaltenes
used for roads and shingles
remain at the end of the
distillation process. These
heavier materials have
"pretty low toxicity" Snyder
commented.
He said there are two
"parts" when it comes to tox-
icity, one being molecule spe-
cific. "The other side of that
is exposure," he remarked,
explaining that some people
stay away from a tarball
when they see it but many
will pick one up and smash
it between their fingers.
People routinely expose
themselves to toxins, Snyder
said, by using coaltar sham-
poos, which work because
they are toxic, killing fun-
gus in the hair. Some sham-
poos contain as much as five
percent of the substance,
he revealed. Toxic products
are also used to treat pso-
riasis, he noted, which work
by slowing down skin cell
growth.
Snyder said he got more
oil exposure over time by
changing the oil in his car
than he did due to the oil
spill.
Turning to the topic of
dispersants used in connec-
tion with the spill, Snyder
explained that Corexit (sci-
entific name sodium doctyl
sufosuccinate) was used in
two formulations, both bio-
degradable. He told attend-
ees that one would be "hard
pressed" to find any disper-
sant left in the gulf. "It's

YELLOW FLIES can be dealt with, call SWCMCD for
details on traps.


Yellow fly season


preparation tips


By STEPHEN
SICKERMAN

Spring is here, with sum-
mer not too far behind, and
the South Walton County
Mosquito Control District
(SWCMCD) is preparing for
yellow fly season.
The name yellow fly is
commonly used to describe
several different species of
yellow-bodied biting flies,
but you don't have to be able
to pronounce Diachloris fer-
rugatus, the scientific name
of the "true" Florida yellow
fly, to know that they are
fierce biters.
Only 3/8-inch in length,
yellow flies are strong fliers
and persistent and aggres-
sive biters. Like mosqui-
toes, only the females bite in
order to obtain a blood meal,
which is required for egg de-
velopment.
The larval (immature)
stages live in salt marsh-
es, swamps and bogs and
along the margins of heav-
ily wooded ponds, lakes and
streams.
The eyes of living yellow


flies are brilliant blue-green,
with two semicircular pur-
ple bands, but not so pretty
that you don't want to swat
them.
Unfortunately, the meth-
ods used by SWCMCD to
control mosquitoes are not
effective against yellow
flies.
Dr. James Cilek, a profes-
sor at the Public Health En-
tomology Research and Ed-
ucation Center in Panama
City, studied the yellow fly
problem several years ago
and came up with the black
sticky ball trap as a way to
put them out of action. The
black sticky ball trap con-
sists of a beach ball spray
painted black, covered with
spray adhesive and sus-
pended from a tree limb.
Yellow flies attracted to
the movement of the black
ball become permanently
stuck to the adhesive. South
Walton residents having a
problem with yellow flies
can call SWCMCD at 267-
2112 to request a black
sticky ball trap installed in
their yard, free of charge.

Seaside directed to provide parking for condos


By DOTTY NIST
Following five hours of
testimony and discussion
ranging from the meaning of
"adjacent" to the elements of
New Urbanism, the Seaside
Community Development
Corporation was found in
violation over the lack of
two parking spaces.
The decision took place at
the April 13 Walton County
Code Enforcement Board
meeting at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.
The case had originated
in fall 2010 when Dream-
land Heights condominium
owners had complained to
Walton County that their
parking had been taken
away. Composed of two sto-
ries of commercial on the
bottom and the condo units
on the top two stories, the
Dreamland Heights build-
ing is on Seaside's Central
Square next to Modica Mar-
ket.
County staff reviewed
parking requirements for
the building according to the
parking analysis submitted
in conjunction with Seaside's
Notice of Proposed Change
(NOPC) and the build-out


agreement approved for the
walkable community by the
county in 2001. Following
review, the determination
was made that a total 14
parking spaces was required
adjacent to the Dreamland
Heights building. Walton
County Code Enforcement
Officer J.C. Alford testified
that, after a Dec. 15, 2010,
site visit, he had concluded
that only 12 parking spac-
es existed adjacent to the
building.
In response to a question,
Alford described adjacent as
meaning "directly in front
and directly behind."
Gerry Demers, acting
county administrator, not-
ed that the addition of two
parking spaces adjacent to
the building would remedy
the violation.
Walton County Attor-
ney Lynn Hoshihara drew
the conclusion from photo-
graphic records of the area
that parking spaces adja-
cent and at the rear of the
building had been replaced
with tree plantings between
2005 and 2007.
Representing Seaside
Community Development


Corporation (SCDC) attor-
ney Bruce Anderson disput-
ed the requirement for park-
ing adjacent to the building.
He argued that Seaside had
fulfilled parking require-
ments by providing on-
street parking, more than
150 spaces, "for facilities
of this type." He contended
that nowhere in the Walton
County Land. Development
Code (LDC) could any adja-
cency requirement for park-
ing be found.
Anderson added that the
previous week SCDC had re-
moved trees to produce two
additional parking spaces
"across the driveway" from
the back of the building with
the understanding that this
would resolve the issue.
"What we have is suffi-
cent," Anderson said of the
parking.
Demers, who had served
as Walton County planning
and development director
at the time of the complaint
and up until April 11, said
it had been his interpreta-
tion and intent for the park-
ing to be provided adjacent
to the building. He said the
two spaces that SCDC had


added had been across the
street.
Board member Robert
Nelson observed that Wal-
ton County's complaint
about the parking remained
and that the county would
have to say whether SCDC
was in compliance. He also
asked whether LDC park-
ing requirements applied
for Seaside---or if those re-
quirements were derived
from development of region-
al impact (DRI), build-out
documents and those associ-
ated with the NOPC. Renee
Bradley, county planner, re-
plied that the latter sources
were applicable to parking
requirements for the devel-
opment.
Anderson complained
that, because of the way the
trees behind the building
were situated, they would
all have to come out, 15 of
them, in order for the two
parking spaces adjacent to
the building in that area
to be cleared. He said trees
next to the transformer unit
would have to be removed,
lowering property values.
What Dreamland Heights
condominium owners pres-


ent at the hearing were seek-
ing was slightly different
from what Walton County
was seeking to resolve the
parking issue. Jill Crew, an
attorney representing the
owners, said their request
was for nine parking spac-
es located adjacent to the
building, either in front or
in back, but spaces for the
exclusive use of the owners
and not shared with other
uses. Crew's request was
based on the formula of 1.11
parking spaces per residen-
tial unit derived from the
county's 2001-23 Ordinance,
which implemented Sea-
side's 2001 NOPC.
Crew commented that for
15 to 16 years, 16 or more
parking spaces had been
maintained and reserved
for the owners, historically
with eight spaces to the
back of the building and at
least eight in the front.
Tom Brantley, a Dream-
land Heights condo owner
for the past decade, told the
board members that before
buying he had been shown
eight parking spaces at the

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


It's interesting how read-
ing an article can trigger
memories and comparisons
of one's own youth. In the
last issue, Ashley Amason
wrote a fine article bemoan-
ing the lack of reasons for
young people to remain
in DeFuniak Springs af-
ter graduation from high
school.
In truth, DeFuniak
Springs is rich in history,
but not only does it lack en-
tertainment for young peo-
ple, older people have few
choices as well. Except for
being able to go to bars, the
same limited options face
both groups of people.
As someone who has
moved around a great deal,
I cannot imagine what it is
like to stay in one commu-
nity from the cradle to the
grave. Periodically during
my youth, our family, minus
our father who was off doing
Marine things, we would re-
turn to the city of my birth,
a town roughly the same
size as DeFuniak Springs,
but with much more to of-
fer.
In Indiana, Vincennes
has a rich history, but also
sports a movie theater and
if memory serves a roller
skating rink. The popula-
tion was 18,701 at the 2000
census. Founded in 1732,
Vincennes is the oldest con-
tinually inhabited European
settlement in Indiana and
one of the oldest settlements
west of the Appalachians.
Much like DeFuniak
Springs, many people never
leave the environs of the
city. The entire city takes
on a holiday air homecom-
ing weekend when gradu-
ates come to town to catch
up with old friends, enjoy a
football game and consume
large quantities of adult
beverages. Homecoming
was one of my mother's fa-
vorite weekends and she at-
tended whenever she could.
In my family, four of us
were born there. My par-
ents, my sister and me.
When my father was off on
Marine maneuvers, the fam-
ily returned to Vincennes. I
started first grade there and
I think I went one or two
other years as well. When
my father died, I completed
seventh grade in this quiet
little town. The last time
I was there was when my
mother died and the town
really hadn't changed all
that much. Main Street was
still the hub of most small
business commerce, traffic
was minimal, and strangers
smiled at each other. There
was even some light indus-
try as the Buster Brown
Shoe Company was located
there as well as a nexus for
the railroad.
Along with the movie


house and the skating rink,
Vincennes had a unique
public swimming pool. I've
never seen one like it since.
It was called Rainbow Beach
and occupied a section of
quite a nice park. The pool
had no sides, instead it was
surrounded by sand and
swimmers walked into the
water from all around the
pool. Pool goers could put
blankets on the sand to sun-
bathe and indeed it very
much resembled a beach,
except it was a pool. The
further you walked i;nt the
pool, the deeper the water.
In the center were the div-
ing boards and the deepest
water. It was truly a magi-
cal pool and one where my
sister and I got the worst
sunburns of our life-this
was years before sunscreen
and we simply stayed too
long.
Except for cold and snow,

cellent choice of a place to
make a home and raise a

gone," he said.
Snyder described disper-
sant as working like deter-
gent in a dishwasher, mak-
ing oil "into tiny droplets."
He also stated that dis-
persant is the same sub-
stance as a product people
take internally. "It's Dulco-
lax..it's a stool softener," he
said.
Snyder agreed with fed-
eral officials' statements
that the oil from the BP oil
spill is basically gone, due in
a large part to evaporation,
consumption by naturally-
occurring marine microbes,
and photodegradation. All
aromatics associated with
the oil have evaporated, he
said---but he disputed re-
ports of respiratory issues,
saying that car exhaust
presents more of a problem.
He explained that heavi-
er remnant of the oil, low
or absent in toxins, tends
to become progressively
heavier and sink below the
surf, becoming asphalt that
is broken up into finer and
finer particles.
However, Snyder took is-
sue with a statement made
by a federal government of-
ficial that there was no dif-
ference in toxicity between
oil and oil plus dispersant.
Showing a picture of two
bottles, one with oil in wa-
ter and one with oil and dis-
persant in water, he asked
attendees to imagine a fish
in each bottle. In the first
bottle, he explained the fish
could avoid contact with the
oil floating on the top of the
water, by staying below the
surface. With the dispersed
oil in the second bottle said,
the exposure of the fish was
much higher because the oil
droplets were all around, di-
vided up into all areas of the
water.
"It dramatically increas-
es exposure to organisms,"
Snyder said of dispersant.
He expressed concern in
connection with the unprec-
edented instance of putting
"a million gallons" of disper-
sant into the ocean to com-
bat the oil spill.


One result was that "a
lot of plankton" was "wiped
out," Snyder told attendees.
He was apprehensive about
the impact of the loss of so
much plankton to marine
species that depend on it for
nourishment.
Was the use of the disper-
sant the right choice? Sny-
der said that unfortunately
there was no right choice in
the situation.
One advantage of the dis-
persant, he noted, was that
the oil was broken up so that
the marine bacteria "could
get to it much better and get
rid of it much faster," and
"visible oil" was decreased.
Keeping the oil offshore
with the dispersant also was
of benefit to intertidal habi-
tats, Snyder said. However,
the dispersant is likely to
have increased negative oil
impacts on coral reefs and
oyster beds, he noted.
Snyder was critical of the
response in Florida, saying
that it was driven by ef-
forts to keep oil from getting
caught up in the loop cur-
rent and carried to other ar-
eas of the state. "In Florida
politics, we don't exist," he
said of Northwest Florida.
"Ninety-five percent of
the response to this oil spill
was liability and PR," he as-
serted.
Snyder related that af-
ter the spill he had offered
to do sampling from a boat
after DEP and the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration requested
data, but that he was re-
fused funding for what the
agencies referred to as his
"personal research project."
Instead, he said. he ended
up setting up four research
testing stations on the bar-
rier offshore from Pensacola
and provided sampling data
to a number of local govern-
ments upon their request. He
said he was able to provide
results in eight to 12 hours,
while the only labs available
to do water testing, located
out of state, were taking
about two weeks to provide
data from samples.


Snyder commented that
one problem was that NOAA
would not release oil samples
from the BP spill to scien-
tists so that they could iden-
tify oil from the spill in their
areas. He described driving
to Venice, La. to pick up a
sample at midnight from
an individual who had been
near the Deepwater Horizon
rig when it exploded.
He added that a problem
with the cleanup had been
insufficient capacity for
skimming oil, a difficult pro-
cess in wave action. "They
were designing skimmers
up to the end," when the
well was capped, he said.
"Super bugs" for digesting
oil were also developed, he
noted, but they proved to
be no better than native oil-
consuming bacteria.
Snyder identified lack
of knowledge of the Gulf of
Mexico and its currents as a
major problem with the re-
sponse.
He noted that he did re-
ceive funding for testing in
January, after the oil had for
the most part disappeared,
enabling water samples to
be taken in many locations,
including St. Andrews, Top-
sail Preserve, Navarre Park,
and Perdido State Park. He
said samples are still being
taken at his original sta-
tions offshore from Pensaco-
la in preparation for tourist
season. In addition, he said,
there are 23 sampling sta-
tions in Desoto Canyon from
the shoreline to the deep
water. This is a region of
ridges and reefs in the mid
to outer continental shelf off
Northwest Florida.
Both sand and water
have been sampled, Snyder
explained.
While there have been
"some hits" with the sam-
pling, he explained, the level
of oil contaminants has been
"so low" in the samples that
it has been reported as zero
and may have possibly been
the result of boat traffic or
sunscreen.
Coquina shellfish tissue
is now being sampled "as an


indicator of oil contamina-
tion along coastal intertidal
sands," Snyder revealed.
Most worrisome to Snyder
were "fish anomalities" be-
ing reported mainly by com-
mercial fishermen, includ-
ing unusual pigmentation,
rotting fins and wounds that
are failing to heal. While
fish have enzymes enabling
them to get rid of PAHs he
said, there is an "energetic
cost" to the animal associ-
ated with the detoxification
process.
Snyder was confident
that the flesh of healthy-
appearing fish was perfectly
good for eating due to these
cleansing enzymes, but he
cautioned that the liver of
the fish should not be eat-
en.
Long-term impacts of the
spill could be the demise of
some fish species, Snyder
speculated. However, he
said, in some instances fish
population numbers are sig-
nificantly up due to bans on
fishing following the spill in
some areas.
Scientists are "watching
biological and ecosystem im-
pacts," Snyder said.
Asked if offshore drill-
ing should continue, Snyder
said it was his understand-
ing that the spill was caused
by regulations not being fol-
lowed and human error. Su-
prisingly, he said he would
not worry about future drill-
ing if done properly. People
continue to drive cars that
require gasoline, he com-
mented, adding "I don't
think we can stop."
SWCC Executive Direc-
tor Anita Page encouraged
attendees to support legis-
lation now in the U.S. Con-
gress to take from 75 to 100
percent of fines from the
Clean Water Act Penalty
in connection with the oil
spill for the purpose of "the
ecological restoration of the
gulf." She also encouraged
anyone seeing oil on the
beaches to call the oil spill
hot line number, 1-800-320-
0519 to help document oil
spill impacts.

Realtors make their voices heard in Tallahassee


More than 40 Realtors
from the Emerald Coast
Association of Realtors
(ECAR) travelled to Talla-
hassee on April 12 and 13
for Great American Realtor
Days. Florida Realtors or-
ganizes Great American Re-
altor Days each year to give
Realtors the opportunity to
meet with legislators during
the legislative session and
speak with them on issues
important to property own-
ers.

Great American Realtor
Days is an opportunity for
Realtors to speak about is-
sues that are important to
property owners. To effec-
tively make a difference in
Tallahassee, Realtors ap-
pear as a large delegation to
help legislators understand
the importance of property
owner's rights and issues
that will affect all proper-


ty owners in Florida. This
year, Realtors brought four
important issues to the fore-
front while in Tallahassee:
property taxes, property
insurance rates, affordable
housing, and septic tank in-
spections.
ECAR members encour-
aged legislators to reduce
property tax assessments
for non-homestead property
owners and first-time buy-
ers and to hold the line on
property taxes when values
decline. Realtors asked leg-
islators to support bills that
would reduce the annual tax
assessment for non-home-
stead property owners to as
low as three percent, down
from the current 10-percent
assessment. The bills also
eliminate the recapture pro-
vision in Save Our Homes,
thereby preventing prop-
erty tax increases in a down
market.


With respect to proper-
ty insurance rates, ECAR
members urged elected of-
ficials in Tallahassee to con-
tain the cost drivers that
weaken the insurance mar-
ket for insurers and policy-
holders. The cost of property
insurance continues to rise
and much of this can be at-
tributed to fraudulent sink-
hole claims, replacement
cost irregularities, and
more. By reigning in these
costs, voluntary market in-
surers would be attracted
to Florida. Creating healthy
competition allows the price
to lower.
For 20 years, doc stamp
fees collected at the sale
of all property have been
kept in the Sadowski hous-
ing trust to help Floridians
purchase affordable hous-
ing. More than 20 programs
rely on these funds, includ-
ing those who work with


first-time homebuyer- assis-
tance, Habitat for Human-
ity projects, and emergency
home repairs for the elder-
ly. ECAR members spoke
strongly against plans to
permanently redirect these
important housing funds to
general revenue.

One of the most conten-
tious issues across Florida
has been the mandated sep-
tic tank inspection program.
ECAR members support
repealing the current man-
date and replacing it with
an optional, non-intrusive
septic tank evaluation pro-
gram. Currently, Floridians
with septic tanks would be
required to have them in-
spected every five years,
and many inspections would
occur at the point of sale in
a property sale transaction
creating an undue financial
burden on homeowners.

Movie review

Water for Elephants

is refreshingly good


VAN R. BUTLER Ele-
mentary Jr. Beta Club held
their annual car wash on
Saturday, April 9. Jr. Beta
has raised over $400 this
year for Relay for Life.


PARKING


back of the building and told
that they were reserved for
Dreamland Heights condo
owners and their guests.
Helen Gordon, also an
owner and vice-president of
the condo owners' associa-
tion, commented that when
she bought her property she
was also shown the park-
ing spaces set aside for the
owners. "I never thought it
would go away," she said of
the dedicated parking.
"It's a part of Seaside
to park at home," she not-
ed, adding, "Seaside's the
most fabulous place in the
world."
Gordon noted that the
streets of Seaside are private
and that other homeowners
do not want condo owners
parking on their streets.
"Every (other) single resi-
dential unit in Seaside, they
all have residential park-
ing that is adjacent to their
home," she said.
James Meads, a profes-
sional engineer represent-
ing the homeowners, tes-
tified that, based on an
examination of Seaside's
documents, including the
2001-23 Ordinance imple-
menting the NOPC and the
county's parking studies
that supported it, the intent
had been that parking spac-
es would be reserved for the
condo owners so that they
could park adjacent to their
building and walk within
the community. Meads
added that apparently all
the other condominiums at
Seaside have parking with
signs designating spaces
for.residents. He also refer-


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


enced requirements in the
documents stating that the
parking for residents should
be "0 percent shared."
Meads observed that
"two-hour parking" signs
currently were in place
on every space in Central
Square, including those in
adjacent to the Dreamland
Heights building that had
previously been reserved for
the condo owners. "That is
not acceptable for residen-
tial parking," he told the
board members.
Hoshihara commented
that there is no mechanism
for the county to regulate
signs of this type in a de-
velopment. Demers said
the county does not enforce
two-hour parking signs, "no
parking" or similar signs
put up by other parties.
Speaking in support
of the homeowners, Pat
Blackshear, Walton Coun-
ty planning director from
2005-2009, echoed Meads'
testimony, commenting that
Seaside's entire DRI docu-
ment reflects the "park at
home and walk" concept,
and that there is a require-
ment for parking to be "ded-
icated" for residents.
Blackshear added that
when one of the condo resi-
dents comes home late at
night, they should be able to
safely park adjacent to their
building. She was not happy
that trees would have to be
removed to add the spaces
behind the building---but
saw the lack of adjacent
parking as a safety issue.
It was her opinion that the
county must also address


the two-hour parking signs
on spaces previously desig-
nated for the condo owners.
Anderson called as a wit-
ness Richard Hall, a profes-
sional transportation en-
gineer and New Urbanism
proponent who was respon-
sible for the 1984 Seaside
traffic study previously ref-
erenced, helped develop the
Walton County LDC and
had worked on approxi-
mately 100 DRIs.
Hall testified that the
goal with the parking ele-
ment in the DRI process
and the formulas used is
to make sure there are no
safety problems that burden
roadway systems, not to as-
sign "x" number of parking
spaces for the use of any one
building. To do the latter at
Seaside would have multi-
plied the cost of the DRI five
or six times, he stated. He
added that the "0 percent
shared" provision in the
traffic/parking study was
for purposes of calculation
of total parking needed, not
meant to tie parking to spe-
cific buildings.
Nelson asked Hall if Sea-
side had been designed for
a resident to drive around
until they were able to find
a parking place and then
walk half a mile to their res-
idence.
Hall responded that, if
DRIs were required to be set
up along the line of what had
previously been presented
at the hearing, he would
be the first to "line up with
Governor Rick" to do away
with them. "You cannot tie
up a developer's hands," he


asserted.
Board member Richard
Fowlkes asked Hall how
much success he thought
someone would have selling
condos if prospective owners
were told that they would
have to park 300 feet away
from their residence and
carry their groceries from
there.
Hall countered that as-
signing parking to particu-
lar buildings would result in
"a less successful town." He
added that the newest trend
in parking regulations is for
the "the market" to deter-
mine where vehicles will be
parked.
Nelson responded that
Northwest Florida is not
New York City. "We still
drive cars," he said.
Board Chairman Dave
Lovell asked if not designat-
ing parking would not im-
pact the economic rights of
residents.
Hall responded that some
people actually desire dwell-
ings without parking be-
cause not providing parking
results in lower real estate
cost.
A motion to find SCDC in
violation due to not provid-
ing parking required by the
county for the Dreamland
Heights building carried by
unanimous vote of the five
members hearing the case.
A motion giving specifics
on the area where additional
parking should be provided
failed to be approved, with
the result that the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Department is to determine
specific details of compli-
ance. The members also di-
rected that fines of $250 a
day should begin in 21 days
if compliance is not achieved
by that time.


By BRUCE COLLIER

Francis Lawrence's Wa-
ter for Elephants is adapted
from the bestselling novel by
Sara Gruen, and was a wel-
come change for me. I had
been trying to get the ob-
scene inanity of Your High-
ness out of my head, and
had high expectations from
this film. Leading lady Re-
ese Witherspoon is always
good, in comedy or drama,
and villain Christoph Waltz
could get me to see any film
he works on. As for the male
lead, though I have not seen
any of the wildly successful
Twilight films, even I know
what a major romantic draw
Robert Pattinson is these
days. I take it on faith that
he can play an anguished
vampire, but can he deliver
the goods as a Depression-
era working class hero?
He can. Water for El-
ephants protagonist Jacob
"Jake" Jankowski is not
a vanity role for a flavor-
of-the-month heartthrob.
Pattinson takes his job seri-
ously, doing double duty as
narrator of his own story.
It's a tale worth telling.
Jake is a veterinary stu-
dent about to take his finals
at Cornell. An automobile
accident kills both his par-
ents, and the bank fore-
closes on the family home.
Jake hits the road with the
clothes on his back, and hops
a random train carrying the
Benzini Brothers Circus, a
struggling show touring the
Northeast. Jake's vet skills
get him a job as the "bull
man," caring for and train-
ing Rosie, the circus's new-
ly-acquired elephant. '
The circus owner, Au-
gust (Waltz) has, a beauti-
ful young wife, Marlena
(Witherspoon), star of a
"liberty act" (an equestrian
exhibition) and later as the
elephant's rider. August is
by turns manically charm-
ing and frightening, with an
ugly temper that he takes
out on his wife, employees
and the show's animals.
Abused Marlena turns to


tenderhearted Jake for
friendship, and things go
from there.
Meantime, the Great
Depression hits its stride,
made even less bearable by
Prohibition, and soon every-
one is on the edge of their
emotional seats. The show's
fortunes improve, and pros-
perity seems just around
the corner, when Jake and
Marlena reach the inevi-
table and August loses all
control.
Along the way to an explo-
sive but satisfying resolution
are some great scenes of cir-
cus life and the colorful char-
acters that live it. Clowns,
roustabouts, hoochie-cooch
dancers, midgets, barkers,
acrobats and other perform-
ers are portrayed as ordi-
nary people who live in a
realm apart, with its own
laws, caste, customs and
language. The cast is full of
excellent supporting perfor-
mances, notably Jim Norton
as Camel, a hard-drinking
veteran who shows Jake
the ropes, Mark Povinelli
as Walter, a diminutive
clown, and Rosie, a gifted
pachyderm that prefers her
commands in Polish. Waltz,
Pattinson and Witherspoon
get a lot of trio scenes to-
gether, and they keep the
tension building nicely.
The score takes advan-
tage of the jazz, blues and
big band music of the times.
The cinematography is ro-
mantic and soft, giving even
gaudy circus colors a depth
and richness. Violence par-
ticularly the animal cruelty
- is handled in good taste,
conveying the effect without
being overly graphic. Like-
wise the language, which,
after Your Highness, was
a truly welcome change.
It's good to know that real
screenwriters (in this case,
Richard LaGravenese) still
work in Hollywood.
Water for Elephants is a
class act, suitable for pretty
much anyone except small
children. Let's hope this cir-
cus doesn't leave town too
soon.


Certificate of Land Use


Compliance is denied


By DOTTYNIST

After almost half a year
of work and numerous re-
visions, Walton County's
Certificate of Land Use Or-
dinance has been denied by
county commissioners.
The decision took place at
the April 26 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting at
the Walton County Court-
house.
The ordinance had origi-
nated as the county's most
recent strategy to provide
relief to residential areas
where citizens had com-
plained of disturbances from
short-term rentals used for
weddings, receptions, and
other activities. The issue.
was to be addressed in the
ordinance as regulations
for short-term rentals in
residential areas. The ordi-
nance also had another com-
ponent, a Certificate of Land
Use Compliance program.
The program would re-
quire all county businesses,
with the exception of home-
based operations, to obtain
a county-issued certificate
establishing that the busi-
ness was an allowable one in
the land use area in which it
was located.
The proposed ordinance
has been one of the county's
most controversial in recent
years, resulting in residents
being pitted against busi-
ness people involved with
the local wedding indus-
try, with misinformation in
the community adding fuel
to the fire of that conflict.
There has also been opposi-
tion by businesses who have
perceived the certificate pro-


gram as a threat.
The second of two public
hearings required for adop-
tion had been scheduled at
the April 26 meeting for the
most recent draft of the or-
dinance.
While other hearings on
the ordinance have been
long and heated, his one
proved to be very short.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander was the
first to speak, observing
that after three, almost four
years of reflection on issues
involved with the ordinance,
she had hoped to be able to
"bring the two sides togeth-
er" on this ordinance. "Judg-
ing from the number of
threatening e-mails I have
received," she said, she no
longer believed this would
be possible.
Comander was also con-
cerned that the ordinance
contained "too many loop-
holes."
She recommended that
the BCC not approve the
ordinance. Instead, she pro-
posed separating the com-
ponents of the ordinance
and proceeding with them
in separate measures, while
renewing the effort for a
noise ordinance that would
give county code enforce-
ment and the sheriffs office
the tools needed to deal with
disturbance complaints
Comander also proposed
increasing code enforcement
penalties, with the result of
having repeat offenders lia-
ble for up to $5,000-per-day
fines.
Comander emphasized
that 90 percent of weddings
taking place in the county
take place without causing


any problems for the com-
munity.
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen agreed,
advising that Chapter 12 of
the Walton County Land De-
velopment Code be studied,
along with state statute, to
see how the county could be
more effective with enforce-
ment.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones suggested
that it might be a good idea
to add personnel to county
code enforcement and to get
some of those personnel on
duty on weekends, when
many of the disturbance is-
sues take place.
District 1 Commissioner
Scott Brannon suggested
identifying where code en-
forcement can be effective in
these enforcement matters
and where the sheriffs of-
fice can be more effective.
"We've been down this
path a number of times, and
we're still running," said
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones. "If we're going
to have something to en-
force, we've got to get busy
on it."
"I'd like to see this on a
fast track," Comander re-
sponded. She recommended
setting the goal of having
the two separate ordinanc-
es, one dealing with the
certificate program and the
other with the regulations
for short-term rentals, in
place within 60 days.
A motion by Brannon to
proceed as outlined by Co-
mander was approved in a
4-1 vote, with Larry Jones
voting no, resulting in de-
nial of the ordinance as pro-
posed.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2011


Mother's Day weekend
on the Florida Emerald
Coast, is the official
kick-off of the festival
season. Once again,
two popular art events
return to Walton
County, and those
participating and
attending, are
predicted to be in
record numbers.
.......-..................--........---
Traditionally, Mother's
Day weekend is one of the
first big pops that the
Emerald Coast sees every
year. Not mainly the
families with school-age
children, but couples and
families that no longer have
kids living at home, or have
no children.

It is also a time that the
art world celebrates its
diversity and introduces
many new artists, and
reintroduces many of the
old artists, for a week-end
of events and art
appreciation. This year is
no different with the First
West Indies Market and the
Cultural Arts Association's
ArtsQuest, both
reappearing on CR-30A.
Now in its 14th year, the
Rosemary Beach West
Indies Markets, makes its
first of three dates on May


7 and 8. It's an art festival
that not only celebrates the
diversity of art along the
Gulf Coast, but also
welcomes in artisans and
crafters from around the
nation.
Since its humble
beginning in the late '90s,
the West Indies Market has
grown into one of the
longest-standing, top 20 art
markets in the state of
Florida, with multiple
annual dates. This event
happens the second
weekend in May, June and
July, and has increasingly
seen more and more artists
from around the nation
taking part.
With art in the media of
watercolor, pastel and oil,
yard art, metal, bronze and
wood sculpture, pottery,
handcrafted jewelry and
furniture, handmade
children's clothing, etc., the
West Indies Market is like
an art museum and fine art
gallery rolled into one, all
on the beautiful shores of
Walton County at
Rosemary Beach.

Over the years, the
event has transformed into
one of the most important
art "happenings" in the
state of Florida, and more
than 200,000 people from
all over the world have
attended the event and
taken home an artistic


I / ,,


memory from the coast of
the Florida Panhandle. It is
also where many artists
have gotten their start.
Though many of them no
longer attend the event
because they either have
opened up their own shop/
gallery, or their work is
now being carried by stores
and galleries throughout
the nation, they still refer
to Rosemary Beach and the
West Indies Market as
where they got their start.

Throughout the day
there will be live
entertainment,
demonstrations, hands-on.
art activities and a
merchandising mart.
The event takes place on
May 7 and 8, June 11 and
12 and the final market of
the summer season, July 9
and 10. The markets run
from 11 a.m. 6 p.m. both
days.

The second event that
takes place on Mothers Day
weekend, is the Cultural
Arts Associations 23rd
Annual ArtsQuest. This
four-day event begins on
May 5, and concludes with
the art festival on May 7
and 8 at Seaside. The juried
art show has called several
properties home over the
past several years, but is
currently at Seaside.
More than 130 artists
from around the country,
will converge on Seaside for
a weekend of art, music and
education.
Over the past 23 years,
and since its early
beginnings as the Grayton
Art Show, artists have
made their way to the
Emerald Coast to take part
in the event that is still
ranked in the top 100 art
shows in the nation. Once
considered just a local
event, the festival has


blossomed into a
nationwide-attended event
that has some of the top
artists in the nation, vying
for a spot to exhibit and
sale.

Lorrie Honeycutt was
awarded the honor of being
this year's poster winner.
Her works will be on all
posters and merchandising,
with her artwork, front and
center on each.
Throughout the four-day
event, there are numerous
activities scheduled to not
only entertain with a wide
variety of artworks, but to
also educate those
attending on what the
Cultural Arts Association
is all about and what type
of scholarships and
community service the
association offers.
Artists in the media of
oil, pastel, watercolor,
pencil and ink, handcrafted
jewelry, pottery, ceramics,
stained glass, metal and
wood sculpture and several
other artistic media, will be
presented and showcased
at this year's ArtsQuest. '
Known for more than
just being another art show
on the Florida Emerald
Coast, ArtsQuest has
served as the beginning
point for many thriving
artists who wanted to try
their hand and talent at


their creative side. For
many, ArtsQuest is the only
art festival they will attend,
and for others, it is one of
many stops they make on
their annual, "have art, will
travel," tour.
For more information
about the upcoming
ArtsQuest and how to get
involved with the
organization, call the
Cultural Arts Association
at 622-5970, or log on to

Mothers Day has always
been a day that we spend
with our mothers and make
more of an effort to be
there, and do whatever she
wants to do on her big
national holiday. For
millions, it is also a chance
to get her that perfect gift.

With these two great art
events taking place just a
few miles from each other
on the same weekend, why
not load up the mother, or
the mother-in-law, make
your way down CR-30A,
and have her pick her
favorite piece of artwork, or
jewelry herself. It is a good
way to support the art
community and those
artists that work in that
environment, and it is a
great way to give your mom
a gift that was handmade
from the heart and soul!


THE 23RD .4NNIUAL

TIP OF THE WEEK: --


Buyers/Sellers: Obtaining a survey of the property you are buying is not
always required, but should be essential to both parties. No one should
rely on fences, word of mouth, etc. for property lines. Liability issues in
regard to boundary line disputes and encroachments can be avoided by a
good survey. Thousands of dollars in legal fees can be saved and need-
less stress avoided. Let Team Walton assist you in obtaining quotes and


selecting a reputable surveyor.

MAKING A BREAK FOR IT, a small attendee is under
the watchful eye of Mommy at lat Saturday's Mad Hatter
Tea Party, held at Alys Beach to benefit Mattie Kelly Arts
Foundation.


Story and photos by
BRUCE COLLIER
Lewis Carroll likely
never visited Alys Beach
in south Walton County,
but a trio of his most fa-
mous characters the
White Rabbit, the Mad
Hatter and Alice herself
- spent a few hours there
last Saturday. Children
and their parents attend-
ed a Mad Hatter's Tea
Party, co-hosted by Alys
Beach and Mattie Kelly
Arts Foundation, for the
benefit of the foundation.
A suggested $5 donation
got kids juice, cookies,
and a cap with plenty of
decorating material on
hand to customize it.
Parents and little ones
played in a bouncy house,
ran on the grassy lawn,
or took shelter in the
shade of a pavilion set
up with tables for party
goers. Center stage were
the "mad" hosts and their
little girl guest. Brook
Stetler, artistic direc-
tor of the Seaside Reper-
tory Theatre, played the
Mad Hatter. Rep actress
Dawn Glover was under-
cover as the White Rab-
bit, and Alys Beach resi-
dent Chandler Lee was a
picture-pretty Alice.
Selling tickets, dis-
pensing treats and hats,
and helping to wrangle
the tiny tea-partiers were
Kelli Arnold, Margie Dei-
tling and Amy Patterson,
assisted by a host of vol-
unteers and parents.


THE MAD HOSTS greet their little guests. Seated l-r are Chandler Lee as Alice, Dawn
Glover as the White Rabbit, and Brook Stetler as the Mad Hatter.
