KIMKIRBY


Kirby resigns as


city manager of


DeFuniak Springs


Press release, May 3, 2011,
sent by KIMKIRBY
With a new city council
not sharing the city's vision
of the past six years, Kim
Kirby, City Manager of the
City of DeFuniak Springs
has tendered her resigna-
tion. When asked why
Kirby replied, "Serving our
community, staff, mayor,
and city council, for the past
six years has been a joy and
a blessing for me. I am so
proud of the amazing prog-
ress we have made and all
we have accomplished to-
gether in improving safety,
equipment, infrastructure,
quality assurance, customer
service, professional devel-
opment, required training,
and providing competitive
compensation and benefits
while practicing fiscal re-
sponsibility. This has re-
sulted in employee pride,
excellence and outstanding
services for our citizens.
However, recent events
have changed things consid-
erably for me, and I ques-
tion whether the next sev-
eral years will be as fruitful
for me as the past six have
been. Because of this, I have
tendered my resignation."
Throughout Kirby's ten-
ure the city has been hon-
ored with several awards
twice being recognized with
Municipal Official of the
Year, as A Community of
Excellence, for Historic Pres-
ervation of the Chautauqua
Hall of Brotherhood, as one
of Florida's Communities
for a Lifetime and with na-
tional recognition for their
"Quality Process." Through


a public/private partner-
ship with CH2MHILL she
implemented the principles
of the Triple Bottom Line
and was honored with the
CH2MHILL Partnership
Award for the city's stellar
quality of life and exception-
al level of municipal servic-
es.
"I have been proud to be
a part of such a creative and
enthusiastic city team for
the past six years. In that
time, I have been challenged
and inspired by my work,
while being supported and
encouraged by our mayor,
Council, and our talented
and dedicated employees.
It has been my honor and
privilege to have served as
the DeFuniak Springs City
Manager and I take tremen-
dous pride in all that we
have been able to accomplish
together," Kirby stated.
Kirby plans to continue
to call DeFuniak Springs
her home and looks for-
ward to continuing to build
a strong and vibrant com-
munity as a private citizen,
while enjoying time with my
husband, family and friends
who have so graciously sup-
ported her throughout her
service to the city. As cur-
rent President of the Flori-
da Chapter of the American
Public .Works Association,
Kirby plans to spend time
supporting the people and
agencies in the business of
public works; those respon-
sible for planning, building,
maintaining, and improving
our communities and our in-
frastructure throughout the
state of Florida, and nation-
ally.

animals within city limits


By BEN GRAFTON
City Planner Latilda

ness portion of a very short

first reading of a proposed
ordinance to amend the
Freeport Land Development

ing domestic livestock, de-
scribed as, "... horses, swine,
cattle, goats, sheep,..."; "...
chickens, geese, ducks,
guinea fowl, peacocks,...
and "...exotic animals such
as ostriches and llamas,..."
within the city limits.
The proposed ordinance
would permit keeping do-
mestic animals on land
transitioning from vacant
to development and if would


not allow these animals in
platted subdivisions unless
the subdivision is designed
with accommodations for
them and contains restric-
tions within its covenants.
The Council approved the
reading as well as adver-
tising for the second read-
ing which will be presented
at the last regular Council
meeting in May.
Fire Chief Ben Greenslait
reported that the Easter Egg
Hunt at the Sports Complex
was a great success. He said
there were twice as many
children in attendance as
there were at last year's
event. He reported that
Tom Gorman had the win-
ning ticket for the car that
was raffled off at the event.


Councilman Ray Jackson
reported that many people
had told him how much they
enjoyed the occasion.
Greenslait also reported
that the Freeport Swim-
ming Pool would be open on
weekends beginning on Sat-
urday, April 30.
Mayor Mickey Marse
reported that the contrac-
tor rankings for the Wagon
Wheel water well project
were complete and that Pre-
ble-Rish, Inc. was ranked
No 1.
The discussion about the
water tank maintenance
proposal was tabled until
the next meeting in order
for a review to ensure that
the contract for the work
meets state requirements.


MEMORIAL PLAQUE'HONORS law enforcement officers who gave their lives in line of
duty.




Fallen Heroes memorial


at Wee Care Park


In early 2010 a plan was
conceived by District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander
to honor the county's fallen
law enforcement officers in
a publicly visible way and to
recognize their sacrifice for
the public safety of Walton
County. The roadway inside
Wee Care Park in DeFuniak
Springs was to be marked
as Fallen Heroes Way with
a memorial plaque placed
near the main entrance, as
well as individual memorial
markers along the walking
trail in the park.
That plan came into be-
ing on May 20, 2010 with


a dedication ceremony held
beside the park at the me-
morial plaque. In atten-
dance was a large crowd of
law enforcement officers,
elected officials, the media,
and the general public.
The tragic loss of Col.
Gregory Malloy of the De-
partment of Corrections on
February 2, 2011 while in
pursuit of a felony suspect
has been commemorated
on the Fallen Heroes me-
morial plaque. A native of
DeFuniak Springs, Malloy
was a 1985 graduate of Wal-
ton Senior High School. He
joined the Florida Depart-


ment of reactions in 1988,
working his way up through
the ranks becoming a colo-
nel in charge.of the K-9 pro-
gram for the department. In
an outpouring of tribute and
support for his family, fu-
neral services on February
6, 2011 had to be held in the
Walton Senior High School
auditorium. In addition to
his countless friends in the
local area, law enforcement
and corrections officers from
all over Florida, Governor
Rick Scott, Attorney Gener-
al Pam Bondi, and the Sec-
retary of the Department
of Corrections attended the
moving services.


Rep. Drake votes to support drug-testing in HB 353


Rep. Brad Drake (R-Eu-
cheeanna) voted in favor
of CS/CS/CS/CS/HB 353,
Drug Testing of Potential
and Existing Beneficiaries
of Temporary Assistance
for Needy Families. The bill
requires all applicants and
current recipients of Tem-
porary Assistance for Needy
Families to test negative for
controlled substances before
beginning or continuing to


receive benefits.
"When folks are receiv-
ing assistance on your dime
and my dime and they're us-
ing the money to go smoke
doobies or get doped up or
take crack then that demon-
strates to me that they don't
want to help themselves,"
said Drake. "Why should
we spend taxpayer dollars
on helping folks who don't


want to help themselves?"
HB 353 provides protec-
tion for children by allow-
ing the use of a designated
protective payee in the case
a parent was to test positive
for a controlled substance.
In addition, the bill allows
those who complete sub-
stance abuse treatment to
reapply for the benefits after
six months while others will
be ineligible for one year af-


ter their first positive drug
test and three years follow-
ing the second positive drug
test.
"The people of Florida
have called for greater ac-
countability in how we
spend their hard earned tax
dollars," commented Repre-
sentative Drake. "This bill
provides both accountabil-
ity and transparency in our


welfare system, giving tax-
payers what they rightfully
deserve."
CS/CS/CS/CS/HB 353
must now pass the Senate
where the companion bill,
SB 556, has passed through
all of its committees. Fol-
lowing final passage in the
Senate, the bill will then go
to the governor to be signed
into law.

Local organization raising funds for

Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood improvements


By JEFFREY POWELL
The Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood building is the
centerpiece of historic down-
town DeFuniak Springs.
Completed in 1909, at a
cost of $28,000, and used for
many years as the winter
headquarters for the Chau-
tauqua Assembly, the edi-
fice exemplifies DeFuniak
Springs' dedication to his-
torical preservation.
Early DeFuniak Springs
resident Wallace Bruce, for
years president of Florida
Chautauqua, was instru-
mental in erecting the Hall
of Brotherhood. The corner-
stone of the building was laid
by former Gen. John B. Gor-
don. He spoke the following
words during the ceremony:
"The Hall of Brotherhood
tells the story. Every beam
and timber, each brick and
stone that shall complete its
structure, from this support-
ing cornerstone now laid to
its finished turret, will speak
to coming generations of the
sentiment that suggested it.
American brotherhood, a re-
united country, on which de-
pends not only the life and
perpetuity of the republic,
but the welfare of universal
humanity, are the glorious
realities which this hall is

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY MAY 5, 2011


S Editorial Comment I


Editorial Comment


\ \i


-- -----s-3-


Editor:

The world rejoices that Osama Bin laden is dead. Am I
rejoicing? No, I am glad that a reign of terror has come to
an end, but as a Christian, I feel remorse over the death of
this man, because my Jesus died for him too. I feel sad be-
cause I know that as he stood before God, there were no ex-
cuses for what he had done. Nothing he believed was true.
He had believed a lie, refused to accept the truth, and now
he will spend eternity paying for it. I am sure that there are
people wishing as the [New York Daily News] plastered all
over its front page, that he is "Rotting in Hell!" I cannot feel
that way this morning.
I feel a great sadness; sadness that so many have suf-
fered and died because of his actions. Families have been
torn apart, lives have been destroyed and the course of his-
tory has forever been altered, by the actions brought on by
his belief in a lie. How sad is that, to spend your entire
life believing in a cause to learn that you chose the wrong
side?
I belong to a military family, I am the daughter, wife
and mother of military men. My heart is filled with pride
that it was our military men and women that captured and
destroyed this monster. It was NOT the president that got
the job done, it was our men and women that have fought,
not since the nightmare began on September 11, 2001, but
that began back with the reign of Saddam Hussein and con-
tinues today. The battle has been fought and won, but sadly
the war rages on. Our children, my child is still at war;
until each and every one of them is safe at home with their
families, I do not rejoice.


Editor:

I was involved in a motorcycle accident on Monday of
last week (April 25) on Hwy 90, just east of DeFuniak
Springs. The entire first responders could not have been
more professional and caring. I am from Alabama and was
just passing through, but you are to be commended for hav-
ing such fine public servants employed in this area. Thank
you to all who helped me on the scene. A very special

I will rejoice when the'last shot has been fired and the
flag of freedom rises over every nation in the land. When
families around the world can lie safely in the dark at night
without wondering what sort of nut is going to attack them,
and can rest in peace, then I will rejoice. I will throw up my
hands into the air and give thanks to the Almighty God,
that has brought terror to its knees, and destroyed those
that sought to murder in the name of religion.
Until then, we need to continue to pray for God to protect
our military and open the eyes of the blind. We also need
to reach out to our men and women across the world, that
sacrifice time with their families so that we can enjoy the
freedoms that we hold so dearly. If it were not for them, we
may very well be lying in the dark tonight wondering when
the next shot will ring out or the next bomb will fall. How
lucky are we to live in this great nation protected by these
brave souls. Find someone serving in the Army, Navy, Air
Force, Coast Guard or Marines and tell them thank you.
Send them a card, letter or care package. Let them know
that we will continue to support them as long as it takes to
bring every single one of them home.
The end may have come for this terrorist, but the fight
is far from over. Let us not get so caught up in the death of
one man that we lose sight of the big picture; it is not over,
we have made progress, but we have not won... yet. To our
military I say, "Thank you, now let's get to work and finish
the job. God bless you."

thanks to the two ladies who stopped to help, one of whom
is a nurse, I believe. Also, thank you to Garrett's Auto who
towed my motorcycle to their shop and took very good care
of it for me at minimal cost. DeFuniak is fortunate to have
such a great place in town. Thank you again from the bot-
tom of my heart to all that helped and God Bless you!

SATE APIALN WI


With a little help from Democrats in her Leon
County delegation, Rep. Marti Coley was a step closer
Monday to wiping out another layer of septic-tank regula-
tions. The Republican from Marianna won her first victory
April 15 when the House voted 110-3 for her bill that. would
repeal the first-ever statewide septic tank inspection pro-
gram. The inspection bill passed with little fanfare last year
but homeowners from Pensacola to Fort Myers have been
up in arms ever since. The House voted 89-25 on Monday
to pass Coley's HB 1479, a measure that would undo an-
other septic-tank regulation from last year, one that bans
septic tank owners from dumping pumped out "septage" -
the nasty stuff at the bottom of septic tanks onto their
property. The vote was mostly along party lines, with a few
notable exceptions. Democrats Alan Williams of Tallahas-
see and Leonard Bembry of Greenville, both members of
Coley's delegation, joined the Republican majority. So did
Rep. Geraldine Thompson, a Democrat from Orlando.
Rep. Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach, warned that
the pollution leaches into the ground water and eventu-
ally fouls state treasures. He mentioned Wakulla Springs
and the attraction's long-idled glass bottom boats as an ex-
ample. "The springs have been devastated, folks," Pafford
said. "Fifteen years ago, it was like an aquarium." Support-
ers said the ban is impractical because in many counties,
there's no place to take the septage.
"What this bill does specifically, it just puts back in legis-


lation the land application of effluent which has been done
for years," said Rep. Trudi Williams, R-Fort Myers. "If you
were to take all of your septic systems and run them through
your municipal treatment facility, your facility would fail."
Alan Williams said the ban is a "one-size-fits-all" regula-
tion that disproportionately harms his low-income constitu-
ents in southwest Leon County. Audubon of Florida execu-
tive director Eric Draper said he stopped working against
the bill when Coley promised to add an amendment that
would ban dumping in watersheds that recharge protected
springs.
Coley filed the amendment, but then withdrew it. "She
basically just didn't follow through on her commitment,"
Draper said. "I'mjust shocked she didn't do what she prom-
ised to do." Coley filed the Audubon amendment, only to
learn later that House rules prevented her from attaching
it to the bill on the House floor because it's a repealer bill.
"They told me that someone could have called a point of
order," Coley said. "It was an oversight on my part."
"This is the only bill in the Legislative session that actu-
ally allows a form of pollution," Draper said. "It was the
easiest source of pollution to coritrol for the springs and for
the Everglades, and these lawmakers just voted to put it
back in the environment." Coley's bills are still bottled up
in the Senate, but she said she has promises from Repub-
lican leadership that they will pass. By Jim Ash, Florida
Capital Bureau Chief

Hearts, Minds


and One Dead


Body

By BRUCE COLLIER

The New York Daily News headline about the death
of arch-terrorist Osama Bin Laden pretty much sums up
American feeling, even among those who say they don't
believe in punishment in the afterlife.'Someone once re-
marked that although they didn't believe in Hell, they liked
the idea of Hell, if only to believe that people like Hitler
were there. Or Osama.
So far, all I have seen in American news coverage are
scenes of joyous celebration. I have yet to see anyone carry-
ing signs like we saw after 9/11, cautioning against exces-
sive retaliation. "Our Grief is Not a Call for War," was one
I remember seeing. It was a decidedly minority opinion and
probably earned its bearer some excessive retaliation of his
own.
That sign notwithstanding, our grief was a call to war.
Just short of 10 years after the terrorist attack on Ameri-
can soil, U.S. military forces are engaged in three Muslim
nations, and every one those conflicts owes at least part of
its existence to the late Mr. Bin Laden. Never mind we have
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the man the 9/11 Commission
Report dubbed "the principal architect of the 9/11 attacks"
on ice and ready for trial. I doubt that one in 10 Americans
would recognize Sheikh Mohammed's face if they saw it,
but nobody doesn't know Osama Bin Laden's face. It was
Osama's face we hated, and Osama's blood we wanted, all
these years. Seeing Saddam Hussein at the end of a rope
just wasn't the same. Now, courtesy of two rounds from a
Navy SEAL's weapon, we have the real deal.
The media pundits who must have thought that the
royal wedding was going to be the biggest event of an other-
wise routine weekend have been working diligently to tell
us how we ought to feel about it.
When I was a public defender in Louisiana, I represented
menron trial for murder, who were facing the death penalty.
At that time, Louisiana had an electric chair that gathered
no dust. Every time there was an execution once they elec-
trocuted two men in one night crowds used to gather out-
side the gate at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola.
There were the anti-death penalty folk with their candle-
light vigils, and the pro-death crowd, who used to chant and
cheer when the condemned man's casket was carried out
to the hearse. Neither crowd ever included the families of
the victims. The pro-death folk used to give me the creeps,
and the abolitionists always seemed a bit out-of-touch. But
I understand why both crowds did what they did.
I used to live in New York, in Manhattan. I worked for
a time in the Wall Street area and ate in the restaurant on
top of one of the World Trade Center towers. I remember
the feelings I had here when I saw footage of the skyline
of a city where I once lived shrouded in smoke. As a for-
mer New Yorker, I feel pretty happy about Osama's death,
though I know I am supposed to have mixed emotions.
Today, saying I do would be largely for show, so people
won't think I'm some kind of bloodthirsty eye-for-an-eye
savage. Fact is, a bloodthirsty eye-for-an-eye savage is ex-
actly what I feel like today, like those mad-eyed folk outside
the Louisiana State Penitentiary. Tomorrow, when I reflect
on the fact that the world is still full of terrorists who now
have a martyr to put on their t-shirts, I may have a helping
of those mixed emotions. Bin Laden was not the last ter-
rorist, he's just the most successful. May his record remain
unsurpassed and his number be retired.

The goal of the Communi-
ties for a Lifetime initiative
is to help Florida communi-
ties become better places for
elders to live, while provid-
ing all residents the oppor-
tunity to contribute to the
betterment of their com-
munities. It also creates an
inventory of services and
opportunities that promote
the independence and qual-
ity of life for older adults in
the community, and initi-
ates partnerships that pro-
mote the development of
senior friendly community
amenities. Communities for
a Lifetime helps children
grow and prosper and pro-
vides seniors an opportuni-
ty to remain independent in
their communities. Caregiv-
ers for those of any age then
receive the support they
need and elders are enabled
to age in place with dignity,
security and purpose.
The Communities for a
Lifetime initiative brings
elders together with their
communities to share their
knowledge and experience.
Walton County and the com-
munities that encompass it,
with support from the De-
partment of Elder Affairs,
are committed to building
an elder-friendly and volun-
teer-friendly environment in
every community through-
out Florida. Communities
thrive when the contribu-
tions of all generations are
embraced and engaged. Our
elders give us a mature, his-
torical perspective of who
we are, where we are, where
we came from and how we
got there, while our youth


give us a childlike vision of
the future and all that we
can still be. Intergenera-
tional programs give us the
opportunity to bridge these
vantage points and create a
strong sense of community
and appreciation for the con-
tributions of each group. In-
tergenerational Connections
brings together different
generations in ongoing and
mutually beneficial activi-
ties such as mentoring and
volunteerism. Youth and se-
niors share their talents and
resources, supporting each


other in relationships that
benefit both the individual
and the community. Walton
County is one of these com-
munities.
Our Community for a
Lifetime Advisory Council is
currently looking for mem-
bers. Some of our members
are from cities of DeFuniak
Springs, Freeport, Paxton,
county offices, the local
health department, schools,
local agencies and members
of the community. We meet

month from 9 to 10 a.m. at

WCTC's Office gathers supplies


for tornado victims in need


A box truck packed with
supplies for tornado victims
headed to Cullman, Ala. this
past Monday afternoon due
to the generosity of Walton
County residents. Residents
responded in great numbers
to the Walton County Tax
Collector Employees' Club
who organized the donation
drive this past Saturday and
Sunday at Walmart.
As shoppers arrived at
Walmart, employees of the
Tax Collector's Office pro-
vided them with a shopping
list of items needed in the
areas hardest hit by the tor-
nados and asked shoppers to
consider adding some of the
supplies to their shopping
list. In addition to making
donations of items, many


individuals donated money
which Tax Collector employ-
ees used to purchase critical
supplies for the tornado vic-
tims.
Employees of the Tax
Collector's Office would like
to thank the community for
their generous donations.
"It could have just as easily
been our families in need,"
said Assistant Supervisor of
the Automated Collections
Department at the WCTC,
Sheila Carter, "People are
trying to piece their lives
back together and we can
help them by providing some
of the basics they need right
now. Thank you to everyone
who helped us with this ef-
fort."

His Kids kids join up

with Ronald

His Kids, children with
the First United Method-
ist Church preschool, have
joined in with Ronald Mc-
Donald House to collect
pull-tabs for a great cause.
"The children wanted
some way to contribute to
the great work of the Ron-
ald McDonald House and
the way they help and sup-
port families who have a
child with a serious illness.
In order to help them, the
kids need community sup-
port by collecting pop tabs
off of canned drinks and
bringing your collection to
add to their pop tab drive,"
said His Kids teacher Jade
Tucker.
"Although it may not

seem like much, the pop
tabs really add up," added
Ronald McDonald House
representative Victoria Bar-
ton. "They bring 80-85 cents
a pound and those pounds
add up to help us with the
expenses of running the
house that the families use
when seeking treatment for
their children. They certain-
ly help us keep the doors
open, when communities
donate them to us."
To help His Kids support

USDA invests in



Florida organic farmers


By JOHN CRABTREE,
johnc@cfra.org,
Center for Rural Affairs
Florida farmers transi-
tioning to organic systems
as well as established or-
ganic producers now have
an opportunity to apply for
Environmental Quality In-
centives Program (EQIP)
Organic Initiative funding
to assist their organic ef-
forts.
The USDA recently an-
nounced another $50 mil-
lion in funding for the EQIP
Organic Initiative, which
provides a 75-percent share
of the cost of implementing
organic conservation mea-


sures to those who qualify
- 90 percent for beginning,
limited-resource and social-
ly-disadvantaged farmers
and ranchers.
This is the third year
of the Organic Initiative.
In 2010, NRCS obligated
$24 million nationally with
nearly $300,000 going to
Florida organic farmers.
This year even greater fund-
ing is available for Florida
producers to plan and im-
plement conservation prac-
tices that address natural
resource concerns in ways
that are consistent with or-
ganic production. The dead-
line for this application pe-
riod is May 20, 2011.


The Center for Rural Af-
fairs has a long history of
assisting family farmers
and ranchers in access-
ing new conservation pro-
grams. We created an EQIP
Organic Initiative fact sheet
available at http://www.
cfra.org/node/2509 and we
operate a Farm Bill Help-
line where producers can
call (402) 687-2100, ask for
the Farm Bill Helpline and
speak to a real person who
can help producers receive
assistance in accessing new
programs like the EQIP or-
ganic initiative..
The Farm Bill Helplinde
can also assist farmers andi
ranchers with the Conserva '


tion Stewardship Program,
the Cooperative Conserva-
tion Partnerships Initiative,
the Value Added Agricul-
tural Market Development
Program and a host of Be-
ginning Farmer and Ranch-
er programs.
The Center for Rural Af-
fairs was established in
1973 as an unaffiliated non-
profit corporation under IRS
code 501(c)3. The Center for
Rural Affairs was formed
by rural Nebraskans con-
cerned about family farms
and rural communities, and
,we ,rk1tto strengthen small
busipnssqs, family farms
and ranches, and rural com-
munities.

Gladly Welcoming New Patients







THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 5,2011

Paxton agricultural building

named for John E. Baldwin


At the April 19 Walton
County School Board meet-
ing, John E. Baldwin, former
superintendent, accepted
the board's unanimous rec-
ommendation to name the
Paxton agricultural building
after him to honor his years
of service to the community.
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson said in a com-
ment to The Herald, "This


Osama Bin Laden is
dead. Last week as Presi-
dent Obama visited the
tornado-decimated towns of
Alabama, he gave the final
order for an American team
to strike at a compound
in Abottabad, Pakistan on
which he and security ad-
visors had reviewed intelli-
gence that placed bin Laden
at a "mansion" with no tele-
communications and rare
ingress/egress.
The American operatives
executed the order and upon
Bin Laden's resistance shot
and killed him. Every Amer-
ican left the mission un-
harmed, and the body of Bin
Laden was buried in a no-
frills Islamic service at sea.
As my friend noted, "Hence,
no desecration charges to
incite more attacks on our
people, and yet absolutely
no gravesite to serve as a
place of pilgrimage for jiha-
dists. Well played Mr. Presi-
dent."
Indeed, well played, well-
planned, well-executed.
Kind of like hitting the per-
fect home run with three
RBIs, and upon stomping
home plate getting a high-
five and a "that's what I'm
talking about"- the batter
being the President of the
United States of America
and those three RBIs (find,
capture, kill) promises made
during campaign and kept,
which in the relationship
between the American pub-
lic and its politicians equals
knocking it out of the park.
In his address to the
nation, President Obama
recalled the aftermath of
Sept. 11, 2001 when we as
a nation "reaffirmed our ties
to each other...on that day
no matter where we came
from, what god we prayed
to, or what race or ethnic-
ity we were, we were united
as one American family." It
seems in the aftermath of
Bin Laden's death, the same
is true. From grandpar-
ents who recall the similar
horrors of Pearl Harbor, to
the parents who lost their
children and the children
who lost their parents, each
generation along with nu-
merous nations celebrated
the announcement that Bin
Laden has been put to rest.
The Council on American-
Islamic Relations welcomed
the news of Bin Laden's
death according to the New
York Times, issuing a state-
ment: "As' we have stated
repeatedly since the 9/11
terror attacks, Bin Laden
never represented Muslims
or Islam. In fact, in addition
to the killing of thousands of
Americans, he and Al Qaeda
caused the deaths of count-
less Muslims worldwide."

was indeed an honor for me
be to able to recommend
this resolution to the board
to rename the Paxton ag-
ricultural building to the
John E. Baldwin Building,
as Mr. Baldwin was the su-
perintendent who gave me
my first job 34 years ago in
the Walton County School
District. He started many
young persons' careers,


. President Obama agreed
with the group's sentiment
in his address. "We must re-
main vigilant at home and
abroad. As we do, we must
also reaffirm the United
States is not and never will
be at war with Islam. I've
made clear, just as Presi-
dent Bush did shortly after
9/11 our war is not against
Islam...."
As expected, many ter-
rorist websites warned that
America will suffer a worse
fate in the days following
Bin Laden's death, and it is
unclear whether Bin Laden's
second in command, Ayman
al-Zawhari survived. Travel
warnings have been issued
for those in target areas and
mass gatherings, emphasiz-
ing the President's state-
ment that "The fight against
terror goes on."
The fight will continue,
as will war and dissonance
and injustice because for
now those are unfortunate

which had tremendous im-
pact on thousands of stu-
dents. His legacy are the
children and their children
that have benefited from a
Walton County School Dis-
trict education."
Baldwin replied, "Thank
you so much for the honor
you have bestowed upon me
and my family."




methods of the world. Yet
in the history being written
at this very moment, a man
who orchestrated murder
and suffering was eliminat-
ed at the order of a man who
aims to bring our methods
in line with peace and unity
and justice. Take pause to
appreciate the gravity of
the message America sent
at the hands of a president
who confirms, "No matter
how long it takes, justice
will be done."

Gulf Power crews on way to

help restore power in Alabama


A Gulf Power storm res-
toration team of 81 employ-
ees headed to Alabama this
morning to assist Alabama
Power, following the deadly
storms that swept across
most of that state last
night.
Alabama Power had more
than 340,000 customers
without power.
Forty-seven line person-
nel, 16 support staff and
two vegetation team mem-
bers will assist Alabama
Power in the Tuscaloosa
area, heavily damaged by
several tornadoes. In addi-
tion, Gulf Power is sending
a 16-man evaluator team.
These employees will help
assess the damage and de-


termine equipment needed
to restore power. The crews
are prepared to work for up
to two weeks in the Alabama
Power region and will assist
wherever they are needed.
Gulf Power already has
assisted Alabama Power
and Georgia Power this
winter and spring as an
ice storm and numerous
thunderstorms knocked out
power to customers in those
states.
"We're glad to be able to
help our fellow Southern
Company utility .after this
devastating storm," said
Jeff Rogers of Gulf Power.
"Our crews are some of the
most highly-trained resto-
ration experts in the world.


It's common for utilities to
help each other and we're
just glad to be part of the ef-
fort."
Gulf Power Company is
an investor-owned electric
utility with all of its com-
mon stock owned by Atlan-
ta-based Southern Compa-
ny. Gulf Power serves more
than 430,000 customers
in 10 counties throughout
Northwest Florida.
The company's mission is
to safely deliver affordable,

tally responsible energy to

By LEAH STRATMANN
With little fanfare, the
Red Bay Grocery, which was
heavily damaged from a fire
in January, reopened last
weekend. The structure has
undergone some substantial
changes from the original.
The community owned gro-
cery/restaurant had been
open just shy of three years
when the fire broke out.
In addition to a new roof
and all new wiring, the
grocery is now completely
handicap accessible due to
a concrete front walk which
slopes down into the park-
ing area, allowing for wheel-
chairs to access the ramp at
the front door easily. Anoth-
er addition is a screened-in
eating area outside for over-
flow or for those who prefer
to dine al fresco.

Morgan said, "We are ex-
cited to get the store back
open so the community has
a place to gather and drink
coffee in the morning. We
really had the partners pull
together and help to get it
rebuilt. We owe a great deal
of thanks to everybody who
helped get the store open so
quick. A lot of people showed
concern about the store and
it made us feel good."
Indeed the community of
owners fed the construction
workers during the rebuild
and came by offering en-
couragement and support.
Volunteers helped with the
cleaning and restoration as
well.
There have been some
changes inside as well. A
large built-in community
table runs from front to
back, fostering the feeling of
family. Stained glass lamps
provide a soft glow to the
dark shelves housing a myr-
iad of jams, jellies, pickles,
and sauces. Another wall of
shelves offers grocery goods
plus T-shirts, caps, grocery
bags, and aprons. At the
counter, color prints of the
original building drawn by
Cyndy Keller are available
for sale. Keller had been
working on the drawing
before the fire and decided
to finish it thinking, many
of the shareholders might
want a copy of the store as it
was at the beginning.
"I'm just thrilled to death
it is open. I had lunch there
after church on Sunday. It's
so pretty and everybody is so
proud of it," said Ouida Mill-
er, one of the local women
who fed the workers during
construction and who is a
long term Red Bay resident.
"It was too long closed and
everybody at church was so
happy to hear it was open
again," she said.
The restaurant is under
new management and fea-
tures some menu changes,
but the popular all you can
eat rib night is still a staple,
as are all the popular side
dishes.

A hoarders' heaven


Sadie's Flea Market


Story and photos by
ASHLEYAMASON
Not many places offer the
chance to purchase a medi-
eval helmet, cell phone case,
oriental rug and farm fresh
produce all in one location,
but Sadie's Flea Market on
the outskirts of Dothan, Ala.
does. Just off U.S. 231 N.,
Sadie's is a local treasure
for treasure-hunters of the
Southeast. Every Saturday
and Sunday, traffic slows as
hundreds of cars turn into
the red clay that is the en-


tryway to a stretch of unique
vendors. Concrete pathways
with painted arrows guide
scavengers among the laby-
rinth of hallways and cul-de-
sacs where booths offer ap-
parel, electronics, old coins,
weapons, hunting attire,
kids' clothing and accesso-
ries, paintings, home decor,
hand-carved chests and pa-
tio furniture, housewares,
fruits and vegetables, even
puppies.
A quick-run through of
Sadie's inventory couldn't
possibly afford the oppor-


tunity to take it all in; in
fact, several trips through
Sadie's and there would still
be hundreds of items undis-
covered. A trip could yield
a commemorative Disney
poster and a basket of straw-
berries, or an old-school Ma-
rio game and antique farm
plow. What will your trip to
Sadie's yield? Just remem-
ber to take your copy of the
DeFuniak Herald along for
the Where in the Herald Are
You? feature. This particu-
lar caption can read, "In a
hoarder's heaven."


LOCAL PRODUCE looks like a million bucks and is significantly less expensive than in
stores.


LOOK FOR THE big black and red sign to start your flea market adventure.

By LEAH STRATMANN
Two books are under dis-
cussion in this edition of
this column. The first is by
the always entertaining and
provocative Steve Martin
titled An Object of Beauty.
The title of the book refers
to both the world of art as
well as the protagonist of
the story, the beautiful Lac-
ey Yeager, who is building a
career in the art world.
For the most part Lacey
is not a likable character.
The book is narrated by her
friend, art writer Daniel,
who observes her wending
her way through Manhat-
tan for more than a decade,
reporting meticulously on
how she moves from being
an underpaid art slave at
Sotheby's to her own gallery
in Chelsea through a series
of ruthless moves where
she unflinchingly uses her
art and business acumen
and other people to achieve
her goal of financial secu-
rity with a reputation as a
knowledgeable art dealer.
When the story opens
Lacey is in her early 20s
and nearing 40 when it
ends. The pages in between
offer a primer on art and in-
clude some 22 photographs
of great art works, with an
explanation of why the piece
is significant. Martin clearly
knows art and while the fo-
cus of this book is mostly on
the financial rewards of col-
lecting, rather than the sat-
isfaction of owning an Old
Master, the rich detail of a
shortened art education are
worthwhile.
It's interesting to read a
book where the main char-
acter is mostly an empty
vessel lacking in scruples,
sexually uninhibited and
promiscuous, and driven by
demons not made entirely
clear. It was a slow read for
me for that reason.
I plan to donate this book
to the library, so it should
be available soon and you
can make up your own mind
about its value.
Lately I've not been feel-
ing up to par. When that
happens and I still want to
read, I often reach for a book
I've read before so as not to


have to tax my brain too
much. Thus, I recently re-
visited Gone With the Wind
by Margaret Mitchell. Most
of us know the story from ei-
ther the book or the movie,
but the book offers much the
movie does not. To be fair,
the novel is quite lengthy so
the need to edit out a bunch
of detail to make a movie
that isn't five hours long is
clear.
However, it is in those
details that Mitchell shows
us in rich prose the world
of the South just before
and for years after the Civil
War. While heroine Scar-
lett O'Hara is married three
times in both book and
movie, in the book she bears


a child by each of her hus-
bands.
The book touches on race
relations, offers a history of
the Civil War and takes the
reader through the rigors
of Reconstruction and the
changing political scene. Of
course the great romance
between Scarlett and Rhett
Butler is a fine diversion as
well.
Even most of the minor
characters in this book are
fully drawn and developed.
If a person is to have only
one book in them, it would
be nice if they could all be as
good as this one.

say: Tell your daughter it's
important, and if she wants
her graduation gifts, the
least she can do is send a
nice thank you. When she
sends the cards, she gets the
money. Are you bribing your
daughter to get her to do
it? No. You are explaining
a social contract that most
adults already understand
and as her parent, you are
teaching her the social con-
tract of when you receive,
you give proper thanks.
No card, no money. Pretty
simple. .Good luck and God


My daughter and I are
having a disagreement and
we would like your opinion.
Whenever my daughter re-
ceives a gift I tell her to send
a thank you note to the giv-
er of the gift. My daughter
goes and fires off an email to
the person, not a handwrit-
ten note or card. She says
it's just the same and the
sentiment is still delivered.
I disagree. I think it's bad
manners. With the gradu-
ation season coming up,
which my daughter is a part
of, responding appropriately
through a thank you note is
important to me. What do
you think?
Miss Manners
Dear Miss Mariners,
I think that while email
is appropriate for some oc-
casions, when it come to life
milestones like graduation,
a thank you card is appro-
priate. I know it's old school,
but it is correct to extend a
thank you in a formal man-
ner.
There is something tan-
gible about holding a card
in your hand. From the first
moment you take it out of
the mail box, till you open
it and retrieve the contents,
there is an excitement about
receiving a physical letter.

Memories of Mama
Mama's hands were always busy
.- with so much to do.
She loved cooking for the family,
and her parents too.
Her heart was full of sunshine,
with a touch of attitude.
She had ways to make you laugh,
while serving up the food.
Mama's eyes sparkled with joy,
on my wedding day.
Her hands held all my children
guiding them in play.
She had the voice of an angel,
as together we sang.
Standing around her organ,
our two voices rang.
From her head to her toe,
nothing can compare,
to the gift God had sent me
with mama's loving care.

The Southland Singers from
Pensacola, Fla. will be the

the bass guitar and also the
steel guitar. The rest of the
group is just as good.
Within the last two years,
Mary's husband, Art, passed

Patty. But they have made a
wonderful comeback, and as
the song goes, "I have more
to go to heaven for, than I
had yesterday."
Pastor Larry Murphy,
and congregation, invites
everyone out to hear this
anointed group. The church
is located four miles north
on SR-83, and the corner of

Paxton devastates Central to win fifth-straight


District 1-A baseball tournament


By REID TUCKER
Paxton's run to its fifth
consecutive District 1- A
baseball title culminated
in a dramatic sixth-inning,
12-2 shutdown of upstart
contenders, the Milton Cen-
tral Jaguars..
The Jaguars (11-12)
jumped to an early 2-0 lead
on Thursday, April 28, forc-
ing Paxton (19-3) to wade
through three-and-a-half in-
nings with only two hits to
its credit. However, the fact
that both Bobcat hits were
homeruns crushed out of
the park by third baseman
Mason McCormick portend-
ed the game's scorching fi-
nal outcome. Central would
score no more runs in the
duration of the contest.
McCormick was positively
on fire at the plate, as, in ad-
dition to his two homers, he
went 3-for-4 with two RBIs
and a walk, crossing home
plate in all four at-bats. The
junior third baseman is only
in his first season as a start-
er and his second year play-
ing varsity but has already
established himself as one
of the Bobcats' premier hit-
ters with a .572 average in
the 2011 season. Though he
said he "really felt" the sec-
ond home run was coming,
the first one and all subse-
quent at-bats were matters
of patience.
"I was just going be pa-
tient and take my pitch,"
McCormick said. "That's
what we say at practice all
the time."
Senior pitcher Josh
McLaney continued to be
lights-out from the mound,
striking out 10 batters while
giving up just two hits and
two walks on his way to
notching the win. Central,


on the other hand, expend-
ed three pitchers trying to
stave off the Bobcats. Justin
Abel had four Ks to show
for four innings of work but
gave up six hits in that time,
while neither T.J. Beasley
nor Wendall Cooley man-
aged another strikeout in
the remaining innings.
The Bobcat offense posi-
tively took over as they
poured on two go-ahead
runs in the fourth.
Forest Wibbing's two-RBI
single brought home Dustin
Geohagan and Ryan Gilbert.
Paxton made use of RBIs in
the fifth inning to add four
more runs as Gilbert (3-
for-4 on the night with two
runs scored) reached on a
bunt to score Marcus Brad-
ley, McLaney (two RBIs)
brought McCormick home
and Geohagan (2-for-4, one
run) drove in Zach Fore-
hand. A.J. Neale hit one
through the legs of Central
first basemen Nick Waters
to bring Gilbert around for
an 8-2 Paxton lead.
The Bobcats weren't sat-
isfied to cruise to a win ei-
ther, as they accrued four
more runs in the sixth. Geo-
hagan smashed one to right
field for a brace of RBIs,
allowing Paxton to 10-run-
rule the Jaguars.
Though Paxton ended
the game against Central
in dominant fashion, the
quarterfinal contest against
Bethlehem (Wildcats) was
too close for comfort. As
the defending champ, Pax-
ton had a first-round bye
and played Bethlehem two
days prior to facing Central.
Though the Bobcats run-
ruled the Wildcats in their
last five meetings, the game
quickly turned into a nail-


biter as Bethlehem climbed
back from a 9-2 deficit in the
fifth inning to nearly take a
go-ahead run in the top of
the seventh.
Forehand, who handled
duties on the mound during
the quarterfinals matchup,
struck out 10 batters but
gave up an equal number of
hits and had five walks. His
counterparts, Jeremy Hol-
lobough and Colby Mathews,
struck out a combined nine
Paxton batters and also gave
up nine hits. Paxton had six
fielding errors, one more
than the Wildcats, and only
a spectacular double play at
the plate saved the Bobcats
and gave them the 9-8 win.
Paxton coach Jeff Brad-
ley said team unity was


what ultimately enabled the
Bobcats to claim yet another
follow-up district champion-
ship. He said the title-win-
ning victory, which capped
off a dominant regular sea-
son, is proof of how the team
came together after six se-
nior starters graduated last
season.
"There's none of that dra-
ma (between team mates),
nobody's a pain in the tail;
it's just a great group of
kids," Bradley said. "This is
one group of kids I will re-
member forever."
McCormick, still reeling
from the win, summed up
the experience in simpler
terms.
"This isn't too bad at all,"
he said, grinning.

Ponce de Leon's Hillary Harper rates among Lady Pirates' best


By REID TUCKER
Since her introduction as
a seventh-grader, Ponce de
Leon senior Hillary Harper
has become something of a
fixture in the local sports
scene, and with good rea-
son.
After switching out Wal-
ton Middle School's blue
and white for Ponce's red
and black halfway through
seventh grade, Harper, then
13, went on pitch the Lady
Pirates varsity softball team
to a district title. In eighth
grade, she accompanied the
varsity basketball team to
the state playoffs and joined
the squad as a starter the
following year.
That early start proved
a smart move as Harper,
set to graduate later this
month, lead Ponce de Leon's
girls' hoops program in scor-
ing over the past two years,
breaking the milestone
1,000-career-point mark at
the end of this season with
1,149 points in 115 games.
She also drained 192 of
281 free throws in her high
school career.
Harper's contribution
as a team player is equally
impressive. The Lady Pi-
rates (97-21 in the last four
seasons) have won every
Holmes County basketball
tournament in seven years
and have taken home five
back-to-back district cham-
pionship titles with her as a
starter. What's more, Ponce
de Leon went 43-4 in home
games during Harper's high
school career.
PDL girls' basketball and
softball coach Tim Alford
said Harper's individual
successes were never the
first thing on her mind. In-
stead, he always saw her as
a team player with a deep
understanding of the game.
"There are some things
just as valuable to winning
as making a basket," Al-


ford said. "The unique thing
about Hillary is that she
understands the game from
a perspective of the whole
game. She could have piled
up the individual trophies
head-high but it's never
been about that for her. The
ultimate goal is to play hard
not just for yourself but for
the person next to you."
Looking back over her
tenure as a multi-sport
athlete at Ponce de Leon,
Harper expressed some dis-
satisfaction that neither the
basketball team nor the soft-
ball made it as far into the
post-season as she would
have liked. While the Lady
Pirates won their basketball
district, they were edged
out 52-48 by Graceville in
the Region 1-2A semifinals,
and, in softball, they fell 9-3
to Jay in the second round
of the district tournament.
Though Harper shrugged
off the losses with a "can't-
win-'em-all" flourish, she
nevertheless acknowledged
the hard work that went
into the accomplishments of
both teams.
"We worked hard ev-
ery day and prepared our-
selves well for what we had
to do," she said. "I thought
we would probably go fur-
ther than what we did but
I was happy with the way
everything turned out, for
the most part. We've accom-
plished a lot through the
years."
Harper averaged 27 bas-
ketball games per season
but had to sit out several
games as a sophomore due
to a stress fracture in her
leg. Alford said Harper nev-
ertheless played five games
in spite of the injury before
being forced onto the bench
to recuperate. He said she
brought that same intensi-
ty to every game and every
practice.
Dedication and drive are


two things Alford demands
from his players, and Harp-
er was never one to disap-
point. Alford's players must
regularly leave lunch early
to practice and have vaca-
tions cut short, as summer
break and winter holidays
are spent practicing new
drills, playing scrimmage
games and conditioning for
hours at a time. Alford said
Harper took this dedica-
tion to the next level, as she
missed just one practice in
six years of playing varsity
sports.
"[Ponce de Leon's female
players] are very good ath-
letes but sometimes I think
people overlook the actual
work that they put in," Al-
ford said. "I've seen the
work they've done and the
time they've spent and the
effort they've put in on the
days you'd rather not do
that. You hear sometimes
that athletes get special
treatment, well sometimes
that special treatment is out
on the pavement running
sprints."
Alford said Harper's
greatest attribute is the
leadership she brings to the
team. He said her under-
standing of the inner work-
ings of both sports was an
invaluable asset when it
comes to building and main-
taining winning programs.
Alford watched her mature
into a capable leader who
knows when to pull rank
and when to encourage her
younger teammates, some-
thing that Harper acknowl-
edged as difficult but neces-
sary.
"I know some of the
younger players look up to
me so I want to be a good
example for them," Harper
said. "I work hard at prac-
tice and I try to encourage
them. I can be a little bossy
sometimes but that's how it
goes."


Though Harper's achieve-
ments on the basketball
court are many, she said
she does not intend to par-
ticipate in athletics at the
collegiate level, and that in
spite of several scholarship
offers from area basket-
ball programs. Before mak-
ing the announcement, the
most likely fit for her was
Alabama's Enterprise State
Community College, the
same school to which Harp-
er's teammate and friend
Shalea Yates is signed on to
play in the fall. Neverthe-
less, Harper plans to pursue
a nursing degree at Chipola
College in Marianna in-
stead, letting schoolwork
take the place of her decade-
long dedication to sports.
Alford said Harper's deci-
sion not to play college ball
did not come as a surprise to
him. Even though he feels
confident she would contin-
ue her winning ways at the
next level, Alford said it is
important for his athletes to
decide for themselves what
to do with their futures.
"She's had a lot of inter-
est from different schools,"
he said. "There have been a
lot of calls, with people ask-
ing what she's going to do or
if she's interested in play-
ing. We didn't pursue any of
it because I don't ever want
my players to think that I'm
forcing them to play if they
don't want to. I think she's
had that decision made for a
while."
For her part, Harper
has no regrets and said she
wouldn't do anything differ-
ently, though the knowledge
that she won't be playing
any more with her team-
mates of the better part of a
decade was understandably
painful for her. However,
she is proud of the legacy
she leaves behind as one of
the most successful athletes
in Ponce de Leon's recent


history.
"I'm proud of myself for
working as hard as I did to
accomplish the things I did
and of how hard I played,"


Harper said. "I enjoyed do-
ing what I did. I love my
teammates to death and I'll
miss all of them. I'll miss
playing for sure."

Freeport baseball wins district title


By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs
built a 4-0 lead and held
on to defeat Jay 4-2 in the
District 1, Class 2A baseball
championship game.
Collin Myrick got all but
the final out on the mound
as teammate Michael Gra-
ziani came on to coax a
pop-up for the win after the
Royals loaded the bases in
the bottom of the seventh
inning. Myrick was superb
for the first six innings as he
allowed only three hits and
no runs while his defense
backed him up with solid
fielding in holding a four-
run advantage.
Myrick got the first two
outs in the bottom of the
seventh inning only to run
into trouble. Jay's Connor
Weekes doubled and scored
on Samuel James' single to
cut the lead to 4-1. Graziani
took over for Myrick and
was greeted with a double
by Payden Roberts to cut the
lead to 4-2. An infield single
and a walk loaded the bases
but Hunter Vaughn popped
up to Myrick at shortstop
to end the game and start
the celebration for the Bull-
dogs.
Freeport got the lead
in the first inning as three
singles, a walk and a wild
pitch plated two runs off
of Jay starter Zach Gavin..
The Bulldogs added a run
in the third inning as J.R.
Fannin singled in Caleb Mc-
Cormick for a 3-0 lead and
plated their final run in the
top of the sixth inning when
Austin Woodard doubled in
Graziani, who reached on
an error.
Woodard finished the
game with three hits driv-
ing in one run and scoring
another for the #4-seeded
Bulldogs. Michael Graziani
had two hits and scored two
runs with Dakota Davis pro-


viding a pair of singles.
The Bulldogs committed
two errors in the game but
neither cost the team a run
as the fielding was solid in
all three games of the dis-
trict tournament. Brandon
Head caught a line drive
to take a double away from
Hunter Brown in the fourth
inning with Davis gunning
out Roberts in the first in-
ning on his attempted steal
of second base.
Freeport (13-10) coach
Shaun Arntz was elated af-
ter the game at his squad
bringing home the title in
his first year as head coach
with only three seniors on
the current roster. "These
guys played incredibly hard
this week. We got some ear-
ly runs and really put the
pressure on the teams that
were seeded above us. Graz
throws a great game in the
Northview win and Collin
Myrick comes back on two
days rest and was great for
most of the night. It's our
first district title in baseball
in more than 20 years and
winning it in Jay is some-
thing none of us will ever
forget."
Freeport reached the
championship game by win-
ning a scintillating contest
with Northview on April 26.
Senior pitcher Michael
Graziani threw a complete
game in picking up a 3-2
win that put the Bulldogs
into the state playoffs and
ended the Chiefs' season.
Freeport did all the dam-
age in their first at-bat as
they scored three runs in
the opening frame as Gra-
ziani led off with a single.
Austin Woodard followed
with a single and a wild
pitch moved the runners to
second and third with Dako-
ta Davis at the plate. Davis
worked the count full and on
the 11th pitch of his at-bat


drilled a Jansen Bodiford
offering into the gap for a
double and a 2-0 lead. Bran-
don Head sacrificed Davis
to third and Collin Myrick's
chopper to first drove in Da-
vis for a 3-0 lead.
Northview came back to
put a run on the scoreboard
in the bottom of the first
as Brandon Sheets drove
in Zachary Barrow with a
double to cut the lead to 3-1.
The Chiefs could not get any
closer as Graziani struck out
the next batter and Myrick
threw out the last batter on
a grounder to shortstop to
end the inning.
Graziani and Northview
senior starter Jansen Bodi-
ford dominated from that
point on. Graziani retired
the Chiefs in the second in-
ning on three pitches and
Bodiford followed suit in
the top of the third in a fast-
paced contest.
The Bulldogs would put
only two runners on base
the rest of the game as J.R.
Fannin reached after strik-
ing out on a wild pitch in
the fifth inning and an error
allowed a Bulldogs player
to reach with one out in the
seventh.
Northview put at least
one runner on base from the
third inning on but could
not put enough hits together
to tie the game. Barrow and
Austin Arrington singled
with one out in the fifth
inning but Dabney Lang-
horne's line drive was snared
by the Bulldogs' first base-
man, then dropped. Bowden
picked up the ball, tagged
the confused Arrington,
who was trying to get back
to first base (thinking the
ball had been dropped), and
stepped on the first base bag
to retire the hitter (who had
not left the plate, appar-
ently thinking his line drive
had been caught) for an un-


orthodox double play.
Northview scratched out
a run in the sixth inning as
Tyler Brooks walked with
Austin Albritton taking over
as a pinch-runner. Albritton
moved to second base on a
wild pitch by Graziani and
scored on a double by Josh-
ua Scott. Graziani then got
Dalton Daniel to pop out to
first to end the inning.
Northview's last at-bat
started promisingly in the
bottom of the seventh as
Graziani walked the first
batter. Barrow, who hit in
the lead-off spot, then hit
a shallow pop-up that was
fielded on the run towards
the pitcher's mound by third
baseman Brandon Head for
an out. Head then fired to
first base and caught the
Chiefs runner desperately
trying to make his way back
to the bag for a dramatic
double play. Graziani then
blew away Arrington on
three pitches and the Bull-
dogs were playoff-bound.
"This group has battled.
We have played three clas-
sic games with Northview
this year," coach Shaun
Arntz said after the game.
"They got us 1-0 in 13 in-
nings at their place and we
got them 2-0 at ours. It has
been a great series this year
and Graz did a terrific job. I
couldn't be more proud. The
defense has been there this
season with the pitching, we
just have a hard time scor-
ing runs at times."
Team Notes: The Bulldogs
will face a Vernon team that
hosted the District 2 tourna-
ment and beat South Wal-
ton and Cottondale before
falling to Bozeman 10-0 in
the title game. Vernon will
enter the contest with an
11-14 record. Freeport is 5-7
versus Vernon in the last 12
meetings, dating back to the
2004 season. The two teams


last met in Freeport when
Vernon beat the Bulldogs in
the first round of the district
tournament 7-5. A Freeport
win over Vernon on May 3
could send the Bulldogs to
Bozeman on May 6 or set up
a rematch in Freeport with


Jay. Freeport is 0-4 in the
state playoffs according to
the FHSAA championship
records with district titles
won in baseball in 1988 and
1990 and runner-up spots
in 1997 and 2008, all under
former coach Gene Martin.

Lady Seahawks win first FLAG tournament


The Fight Like a Girl
(FLAG) Tournament fea-
tured athleticism, determi-
nation and a stadium full
of school spirit as powder-
puff football teams from all
four high schools graced
the Freeport High gridiron.
More importantly, the April
16 competition showcased
ovarian cancer awareness.
This tobacco-free sporting
event also provided the op-
portunity to help support
Donna Floyd, a Freeport
Elementary teacher, in her
struggle against ovarian
cancer.
Donna Floyd has taught
at Paxton and Freeport El-
ementary, has taught along-
side Carey Nick, the South
Walton Powder-puff Foot-
ball Coach and is the aunt
to Kaydee Willcox, a Walton
Lady Braves Powder-puff
team member and the sis-
ter-in-law to Billy Ray Will-
cox who coached the Lady
Braves. Donna Floyd's con-
nection to all four 'schools
and her indomitable, inspir-
ing personality were two mo-
tivating factors for Freeport
High's Student Government
Association, who organized


the county wide event. Oth-
er sponsors included Nick's
on the Beach, the Walton
County Prevention Coali-
tion and Students Working
Against Tobacco.
The Lady Seahawks
of South Walton High took
home the championship tro-
phy cup, after match-ups
with Walton High's Lady
Braves, and the champion-
ship round with the Lady
Bulldogs from Freeport
High. The Lady Braves se-
cured a third place finish
over the Lady Bobcats from
Paxton. In spite of a double
loss, Paxton's team enjoyed
the event because they were
Paxton's first football team
ever.
Freeport High's Marching
Bulldog Band and guest an-
nouncer, Johnny C. of MIX
103.1 fueled the event's en-
thusiasm. Volunteers from
the band parents association
and Walton High's Anchor
Club served up hamburgers,
nachos and homemade layer
cakes throughout the day.
Nursing students from the
Career Development Cen-
ter were on hand to perform
blood pressure screenings


and students from SWAT
(Students Working Against
Tobacco) gave out brochures
and wristbands promoting a
tobacco-free lifestyle. Bon-
nie Coon donated a beau-
tiful afghan to help raise
funds. Spectators were also
encouraged to support Floyd
by purchasing Fight Like A
Girl t-shirts.
The true show stopping
moment occurred when


Johnny C. announced that
Donna Floyd had entered
the stadium. After much
applause and friendly hugs
from spectators, Floyd took
time to visit and pose for
photographs with each
team. At the end of the tour-
nament, Floyd presented the
Winner's Cup to the South
Walton Lady Seahawks.
Freeport High SGA spon-
sor Tracy Nick, who spear-


headed the event, shared
that the event was a huge
success-- as it raised over
$3,600 for Donna Floyd's
medical expenses. Nick also
believed that the first ever
district -wide FLAG Tour-
nament brought important
community awareness to
ovarian cancer and how im-
portant it is for women to be
screened every year for this
"silent killer."


Plans are for the Fight
Like A Girl Powder-puff
Football Tournament -to be-
come an annual tradition
for the .Walton School Dis-
trict. The focus will be main-
tained on high school female
athletes and women's health
issues, but the sporting ven-
ue, chief sponsor and wor-
thy recipient may vary each
year, depending on commu-
nity circumstances.

Sports News and Notes


By PATRICK CASEY
High school spring foot-
ball practice began across
the state of Florida on Mon-
day as teams began to get
ready for the 2011 football
season. The spring practice
session will be quite impor-
tant for Walton and South
Walton as new coaches take
over at the two schools. Wal-
ton's Bobby Bennett and


South Walton's Bill Wiles
will have three weeks to get
a look at their personnel
before the end of the school
year. Freeport's Jim Ander-
son will be looking for line-
men during the spring as all
three schools look to replace
nearly 40 departing seniors
combined.
Alexa Guarachi, who at-
tended South Walton High


School, was named to the
All-SEC first team in tennis
last week. Guarachi enjoyed
much success in, doubles
with Courtney McLane at
the University of Alabama
as the duo defeated 10 na-
tionally ranked opponents
this season, all at the No.
1 position. The team's 28
doubles victories this season
ties the most for a tandem in

property owners who had
constructed coastal armor-
ing, including seawalls and
sand-filled geotextiles, after
Hurricane Dennis caused
significant coastal erosion
in Walton County in 2005.
During the emergency peri-
od after the hurricane, in or-
der to assist beachfront ho-
meowners to shore up their
property, Walton County
had issued emergency per-
mits to the property owners
for construction of armoring.
The permits were issued
with the understanding that
the. homeowners would be
required to either obtain a
permit for their armoring to
remain in place on a perma-
nent basis---or remove the
armoring within 60 days.
HB1311 removes the re-
quirement for property own-
ers with yet-unpermitted
armoring constructed in
connection with the county

Walton County makes

improvements on Marsh Drive


Walton County Public
Works has completed paving
of Marsh Drive in the Basin
Bayou area. This project
was done under the county's
dirt to pave program.
The road is only one third
of a mile in length, but the
benefits are great. Paving
reduces maintenance cost
by no longer having to grade
the dirt road. It provides
better and more convenient
access to 22 homes. A dedi-
cation from property owners
to increase the right of way


width to 60 feet allows ample
space for the roadway, as-
sociated drainage improve-
ments and adequate area
for utilities. Approximately
$70,000 was spent on this
road improvement.
Most importantly, im-
proved drainage along
Marsh Drive allows for re-
duction and better treat-
ment of storm water run-
off. The road runs directly
in a straight line from SR-
20 to the Choctawhatchee
Bay. According to Commis-


sioner Sara Comander, in
Whose district Marsh Drive
is located, "The new drain-
age improvements will help
to ensure the road does not
adversely affect the water
quality of the Choctaw-
hatchee Bay or impact other
environmentally sensitive
areas."
The improvements could
not have been possible with-
out the cooperation and gen-
erous donation of the right of
way by the property owners
adjacent to Marsh Drive.

Sheriff Mike

Adkinson

addresses WRWF


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County Sheriff
Mike Adkinson was the fea-
tured speaker at the April 20
Walton Republican Women
Federated (WRWF) meeting
at Carrabba's Italian Grill
in Miramar Beach.
In office since 2009, the
40-year-old said he has been
told he is the the young-
est sheriff in the state. He
noted that Walton County is
among the largest, counties
in the state in land mass.
Adkinson commented
that the various parts of the
county each have different
issues that are important to
address. He revealed that
60 percent of the sheriff's
office business is now done
out of the South Walton
Substation. His office took
approximately 500 calls per
day during spring break, he
revealed.
Adkinson said his per-
sonnel's busiest time of the
week is Thursday between 2
and 4 p.m.
He told attendees that his
office was able to decrease
its budget by approximately
$1 million for the current
fiscal year without laying
off employees. He character-
ized his relationship with
the Walton County Board of


County Commissioners as
"great."
SAdkinson expressed con-
cern about Walton County's
evacuation rate, which is'
considered the second slow-
est in the state after Monroe
County. He indicated that
he has been vocal about this
concern and the need to wid-
en U.S. 331 throughout the
county with legislators and
the governor.
Adkinson said that from a
law enforcement standpoint
he is 100 percent behind leg-
islation to fight "pill mills,"
a big problem locally.
He was apprehensive
about moves by the state in
the direction of privatizing
"elements of the criminal
justice system," observing
that law enforcement pub-
lic officials are the only ones
charged with the responsi-
bility of taking someone's
life on behalf of the public.
He was concerned that turn-
ing over too many elements
of law enforcement to the
private sector could amount
to government abrogating
its responsibility.
Adkinson was upbeat
about, his office's Citizen
Support Program, which

Turtle Fest



a success


By ALICIA LEONARD
This past Saturday after-
noon, the sun was shining,
there was a melody from
Chuck Lawson's steel drums
wafting through the amphi-
theater and greens area, as
kids of all ages learned more
about turtles and other na-
tive wildlife at this year's
Turtle Fest. Forrest Wil-
liams also entertained the
crowds with his musical
stylings.
The South Walton Com-
munity Council (SWCC)
teamed up with the Mer-
chants at Gulf Place and
the Turtle Council to put
on a family friendly event


at Gulf Place, with a little
something for everyone and
lots of educational opportu-
nities.
Artists set up shop with
sweets, treats, repurposed
glass, t-shirts, jewelry and
many other handcrafted spe-
cialties. Shops at Gulf Place
also opened their doors. and
invited all to come in, visit
and shop during the festi-
val.
The younger set enjoyed
playing in a special sand
box alongside an expertly
crafted sand turtle, wearing
their turtle shells they made

KIDS AND TURTLES love sand. Kids crowded to get a little sandbox fun in during this

Alaqua Animal Refuge


to host Bark Park


community meeting


Alaqua Animal Refuge's
officials believe the newly
reopened Bark Park can
become a strong amenity
to the Walton County area
through a planning partner-
ship with the community.
The Freeport animal
shelter and adoption center,
which received unanimous
approval to assume the op-
erations of the canine park,
located on J.D. Miller Road
in Santa Rosa Beach, by
the Walton County Board of
Commissioners on April 12,
will host a brown-bag com-
munity meeting at the Wal-
ton Area Chamber of Com-
merce. The event, to be held
on Friday, May 6 at noon,
will offer a forum to share
ideas for improvement as


well as register to volunteer
in a variety of different ca-
pacities for residents inter-
ested in the off-leash park.
"When the announcement
was made that Alaqua Ani-
mal Refuge would assume
Bark Park's operations, the
calls and e-mails of sup-
port came pouring in, said
Laurie Hood, president and
founder of the four-year-old
organization. "It was such
a wonderful feeling to know
that this new venture was
so readily embraced by our
community; therefore, we
realized we had an opportu-
nity to invite these people to
be part of the park's evolu-
tion. The park's future will
definitely be bolstered by a
strong community partner-


ship, which starts with this
meeting."
Bark Park Inc. was origi-
nally opened by a group of
volunteers in 2006, but due
to economic challenges, the
park closed in January.
Alaqua Animal Refuge's
long-term plans for the park
include improved landscap-
ing, a sheltered seating area,
an Airstream trailer snack
stand and the installation of
an agility course. The park
may also serve as a location
for obedience training and
pet-adoption events

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 5,2011



SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


There is something ter-
ribly wrong when a sitting
president is forced to hire a
lawyer in order to secure his
long form birth certificate
from a state that does not
routinely provide them. The
man has twice proved he was
born in the United States
and therefore completely
entitled to run for president
and has been holding the of-
fice for two years.
With a myriad of serious
problems facing him, this
man had to spend time on
something entirely trivial
because of a chump like
Donald Trump. Not only did
Trump take credit for the
president finally providing
the document, he now has
gone on to question how
Barack Obama was admit-
ted to Harvard. So we have
gone from the birther issue
to the much more racist is-
sue of college admissions.
It seems no one is prepared
to believe a black man is
smart enough to be admit-
ted to colleges traditionally
difficult to get into. Let's not
think about undergraduate
grades, drive, letters of rec-
ommendation, being named
editor of the law review for
being first in your class or
anything substantial like
that. Let's just assume it
was affirmative action at
play.
Potential opponents
should veer away from ar-
eas where the myths have
already been debunked and
go after the actions of his


presidency. There is much
to be critical of, so why do
these yahoos keep going
back over the same old is-
sues ad nauseam?
Meanwhile in Afghani-
stan, almost 500 people
slipped out of prison via a
complex and circuitous tun-
nel it took the Taliban only
six months to dig. This feat
makes The Great Escape
look lame. None of those who
escaped have been caught;
they simply evaporated
into the landscape. While
it is true they had some in-
side help, it is still quite the
coup.
Maybe some of our con-
tracted workers in Afghani-
stan could take lessons in
efficiency on doing routine
roadwork and come back to
the U.S. and show us how
to do things in a hurry. The
Japanese rebuilt a vital
road in six days after the
earthquake there. Six days.
Here, it would take six days
to start the paperwork and
another six years to com-
plete the project.
Facts like these make it
difficult for me to believe
people actually think we are
still the best and most pow-
erful nation on earth. There
is a ton of evidence to the
contrary. Other industrial-
ized countries value their
people and provide them
with health care. Workers
earn the right to real vaca-
tion time without guilt or
a sense they will lose their
jobs if they take the time


LEAH STRATMANN


everyone needs to decom-
press.
We have been coasting on
fumes and a strong reputa-
tion for years. If push came
to shove a great big mirror
would be put in the faces of
all of us showing us to be not
all that great and powerful
any longer. However, we
can reverse that by coming
back to common sense ap-
proaches to problems, swift
execution of needs, and a
unified sense of urgency.
Like all Americans, I
want to be proud of my
country and each election
try to vote for those who I
hope can turn us into the
right direction where we can
legitimately claim to be the
best. One time we had it and
I don't know how we squan-
dered it.

By DOTTY NIST
Due to concerns over
threatened sea turtles and
the letter of the law, no
permits for beach bonfires
are to be issued in Walton
County from May 1 through
Oct. 31.
According to county code,
a permit is required for
a beach bonfire, and the
South Walton Fire District
(SWFD) is responsible for
the issuance of beach bon-
fire permits.
Sammy Sanchez, SWFD
fire marshal, commented
on May 2 that the SWFD
would no longer be able to
issue beach bonfire permits
through the end of October,
when the sea turtle nesting
season ends. The nesting


season officially began on
May 1.
At the request of the
county, the SWFD took over
responsibility for beach bon-
fire permits in December
2010. The SWFD had de-
veloped and implemented
an education program to
promote safety in connec-
tion with the permitting
program. Among permit
requirements are that bon-
fires must take place on
private property owned by
the permitted or with the
permission of the property
owner. The fire must also be
in a container, not directly
on the beach sand.
Since taking over the
permitting program, previ-
ously under the purview of


the Walton County Sheriffs
Office and Walton County
Code Enforcement, the
SWFD had issued 131 per-
mits, Sanchez said. Prior to
the permitting responsibil-
ity being transferred to the
SWFD, approximately 400
beach bonfire permits had
been issued since 2009, dur-
ing all times of the year.
Sanchez explained that
after the fire district's tak-
ing charge of beach bonfire
permits, their attorney had
conducted a formal review
of the county's Wildlife
Lighting Ordinance. The or-
dinance sets forth measures
for protection of native beach
species such as sea turtles

2010 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Regional Utilities Water System
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we
deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts
we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our
water source is ground water from eight Regional Utilities wells with two interconnects with the City of Freeport and South Walton Utility Co. The wells
draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
In 2009 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on South Walton, Freeport, and Regional Utilities systems.
The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of the drinking water wells. There are
eleven potential sources of contamination identified for South Walton and five for Freeport. Both Freeport' s and South Walton' s assessment results were
found to be moderate to low. There were no potential sources of contamination found near any of Regional Utilities well sites. The assessment results are
available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Melissa Pilcher, General Manager, or Jason Reddick,
Superintendent of Water Operations, at (850) 231-5114. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn
more, please contact our office at the above number between the hours of 8:00AM-4:30PM Monday through Friday or attend a board meeting on the
fourth Thursday of every month at 5:00PM.
Regional Utilities Water System routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations.
Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2010. Data obtained
before January 1, 2010, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as
feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to
health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study
conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs).
Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring
locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
EPA requires monitoring of over 80 drinking water contaminants. Those contaminants listed in the table below are the only contaminants detected in
your drinking water.

The State of Florida Department of Environmental 2010 CONTAMINANTS TABLE

Odor was sampled at the City of Freeport point of entry (mo.lyr.)-
in June 2008. and was found in a higher level than is Radioactive Contaminants Compilation of sampling by Freeport, Regional Utilities, and South Walton Utilities


allowed by the State. Odor is a secondary contaminant
and does not pose a health risk.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and
bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds,
reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the
surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves
naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water
include:

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

and home plumbing. Regional Utilities is responsible for
providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for
several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or
cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods,
and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons
such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other
immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
Regional Utilities Water System would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our
water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel

It has been ongoing for
the past three years, and
last week at the Walton
County Board of
Commissioners
(BCC)meetings,
weddings and events
took one step closer to
being saved on the
beaches of south Walton.
With heated debate for
many years, and a
constant and steady
coverage from the
national press, Walton
County seems to have
saved themselves from
losing millions of
millions of dollars.
...-...................................
Wedding and event
coordinators, rental
companies, rental property
owners, florists and
caterers were on one side of
the aisle, and a handful of
homeowners was on the
other. The April 26 BCC
meeting in DeFuniak
Springs seemed to be more
like a church service,
compared with the April 12
meeting, where tempers
flared and it seemed that
both sides were set for
another Civil War.

But when Commissioner
Sara Comander suggested
that the various parts of
the ordinance should be
separated and further
studied, a sigh of relief
could be heard from the
wedding and event
industry. It was a sign that
things could be going their
way, and the largest
income-generating industry


in the county could
continue doing business as
usual, just in time for the
busy wedding and event
season that started in mid-
April.
The noise ordinance is
still on the table, and all
commissioners have agreed
to expedite their research
and discussions to come up
with a "quiet time" for all
events and weddings along
CR-30A.
The decision also came
just in time, before the
national press would have
descended on Walton
County, and hundreds of
thousands of prospective
Walton County brides
would have chosen another
venue. The short-term
rental and noise ordinance
was one ordinance that
many journalists and
analyst said was 60-65
percent of the wedding and
event industry's income.
It was also the first
meeting that followed the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival in
Panama City Beach, that
took place April 15-18. This
event called Walton County
home for more than a
decade, but because of one
complaint that festered into
more problems for the
event organizers, they
moved the event to Bay
County in 2009. This year
was the most successful
event in the festival's 13-
year history.
The Seabreeze Jazz
Festival this year sold more
than 20,000 tickets and
generated more than $10.5
million in revenue for the

four-day event, all taxes
from which went to Bay
County. This was another
bit of information the
county commissioners
received shortly before the
meeting, via numerous
phone calls and emails from
irate residents who never
wanted the event to leave
Walton County.

The heated debate that
has gone on for more than
three years has been a
media delight as
newspapers, radio stations,
websites and TV networks
have descended on Walton
County. Every time the
commissioners met, the
press crowded into the
assembly room, waiting for
a sound byte.
Walton County has long
been known as "the place"
to come for art festivals,
concerts, beach events,
gatherings, weddings, and
reunions. But recently,
more and more events have
been traveling over the
county line into Bay
County, where Pier Park
has been overwhelmed with
events some that once
called Walton County
home.

MORRIS WILL BE ONE
OF NEARLY 50 artisans
and crafters from all across
the South, at this
weekend's West Indies
Market at Rosemary


1',- I J L ./


One of the biggest
reasons, people say, is the
fact that Bay County wants
the events to come in and
bring in millions of millions
of dollars in revenue for the
local economy. Others say
that Walton County seems
to be steering away from
events .and not wanting to
have thousands of tourists
come to the shores of south
Walton, even if it does
bring in millions of dollars
in heads in bed tax.
Events like the
Seabreeze Jazz Festival,
the Seafood Festival, and
this past weekend's
Thunder Beach, have put
Panama City Beach on the
map, and the Panama City
Beach Tourist and
Convention Center
(PCBTCC) wants more.
Just this week, the
PCBTCC announced they
are taking applications for
production companies and
producers who would like to
work with them on bringing
even more events to Pier
Park and Frank Brown
Park.

National coverage from
the jazz festival, and the
fact that they had been


working with the new
international airport and
Southwest Airlines, has
helped boost Bay County's
economy by hundreds of
millions of dollars. It has
also been a big factor that
though their permitting
procedure is a bit more
tougher than Walton
County when it comes to
putting on events, they are
constantly working on
making Bay County, "the"
place to come for any type
of cultural event.
Another aspect of events
being so successful in Bay
County, is the fact that of
numerous hotels and
condos that line the
beaches of Panama City
Beach thrive on these
events to bring in tourists
and tourism dollars.
Besides having thousands
of rooms for tourists, Pier
Park Shopping Center is
also a huge magnet for
shoppers, tourists, beach
goers, festival goers and
others that have made the
Emerald Coast their
vacation destination.

Though Walton County
has Silver Sands, and they
do have a few events
throughout the year, they
are quiet in comparison to
Pier Park. With Mardi
Gras parades, summer
blast parties, New Year's
Eve ball drops, and other
events, people make their
vacation plans in Panama
City, to always spend the
day, and into the night at
Pier Park with its


numerous shops,
restaurants and night
clubs.
Many say that Walton
County should remain
quiet, and somewhat off the
map, but who is going to
keep all the roadways
paved, the hospitals staffed,
the school doors open, and
the government working, if
not for events and the
thousands of weddings that
take place on our beautiful
beaches? It comes down to
the simple fact that Walton
County could not survive
without the wedding and
event industry, since there
is no other industry in the
county.
Signs are looking
more positive for the
industry, but that also
means that things are
looking better for a county's
economy that is beginning
to realize that though there
should be regulations and
rules, the wedding and
event industry does not
need to be stifled. It also is
a sign that with the
economy, the press of the
BP oil spill and the overall
slowdown of travelers to the
Emerald Coast, now is not
the time to strangle
businesses in the county.
It is hoped that the
nonsense of trying to shut
down a vast majority of
weddings and events in
Walton County will become
a thing of the past and the
bad press on both sides will
go away and a positive light
will once again shine on our
great county.

BEACH BONFIRES are popular on Walton County's beaches but allowed only by permit.
Due to a recent decision, no beach bonfire permits will be available for the next six months.



DECISION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3-C


and conservation of their
beachfront habitat. Sanchez
said the SWFD attorney had
determined that, since the
ordinance included bonfires
as a "point source of light,"
the fires would be prohibit-
ed during sea turtle nesting
season according to the or-
dinance. The ordinance de-
fines a point source of light
as a man-made source "that
emanates light." It restricts
point sources of light that
are "directly visible from the
beach" within the area from
the beach high water line to
750 feet landward.
In order to continue to
facilitate beach bonfires
throughout the year, as the
SWFD assumed to be the in-
tent of the county, the SWFD
had proposed an amendment
to remove beach bonfires
from the items listed in the
ordinance as point sources
of light. Developed in a co-
operative effort of'legal staff
of the Walton Ceunty Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) and the fire district,
the proposed amendment
would have. revised the or-
dinance's definition of point
sources of light to exclude
bonfires. The proposed
amendment came before the
BCC on April 26 for final
consideration.
Blue Mountain Beach res-
ident Richard Fowlkes came
forward to provide input on
the amendment. He stated
that he had been heavily
involved with the creation
of the Wildlife Lighting Or-
dinance in a lengthy process
that had included members
of the business community
as well as residents. "We
went line by line in creat-
ing language that both sides
could live with," Fowlkes re-
called.
He disputed that the con-


sequence of beach bonfires
not being allowed during
sea turtle nesting season
had been unintentional in
the ordinance, Allowing
the fires during the nesting
season would result in sea
turtle hatchlings being dis-
oriented and walking into
the fires, Fowlkes asserted.
He added that the Wild-
life Lighting Ordinance is
an element of the county's
proposed Habitat Conserva-
tion Plan, which is now un-
der review by the state. He
therefore advised against
making any changes to the
ordinance, particularly at
this time.
Fowlkes said beach fires
are also dealt with in an-
other county ordinance, the
Beach Activities Ordinance.
In response to a question
from District 4 Commission-
er Sara Comander, Fowlkes
said he did not oppose beach
bonfires outside of sea turtle
nesting season.
Gerry Demers, acting
county administrator, noted
that the inclusion of beach
bonfires as a point source
of light had been consid-
ered unintended because,
after approving the Wildlife
Lighting Ordinance in 2009,
Walton County had con-
tinued to issue permits for
beach bonfires.
Lynn Hoshihara, county
attorney, explained that
the county's interpretation
of the ordinance was that
beach bonfire permits were
permissible, but that, after
reviewing the ordinance,
the SWFD's attorney had a
different interpretation, re-
sulting in a request for clari-
fication of the "point source
of light" definition with the
proposed amendment.
County Commission
Chairman Larry Jones com-


mented that the question is
whether this is a source of
light.
"It is a source of light," re-
sponded District 4 Commis-
sioner Sara Comander.
Comander made a motion
to deny the proposed amend-
ment. The motion carried
unanimously, resulting in
rejection of the amendment.
Jones then directed staff
to conduct a review of the
Wildlife Lighting Ordi-
nance.
Contacted on April 29,
Sanchez said that as a re-
sult of the April 26 decision,
as things now stand the
SWFD is not issuing beach
bonfire permits until the
after end of sea turtle nest-
ing season, Oct. 31. He was
concerned that people would
be lighting beach bonfires
without a permit and would
not benefit from the safety
education program that the
SWFD had implemented in
connection with beach bon-
fire permitting.
Sanchez said that since
the decision he had been
contacted by resorts, many
of which provide beach bon-
fires as an amenity for their
guests. He said the callers
had not been pleased that
permits would not be avail-
able during the six-month
period.

Contacted on May 3, De-
mers provided the informa-
tion that violations of the
Wildlife Lighting Ordinance
associated with unpermit-
ted bonfires are enforceable
by Walton County Code En-
forcement, and that people
charged with these code
violations may be required
to appear before the Code
Enforcement Board and be
subject to fines of up to $500
per day.

emergency period approvals
to obtain a state permit---
and allows the armoring to
remain in place permanent-
ly.
State Representative
Marti Coley (R-Marianna)
sponsored the local bill in
the House of Representa-
tives at the outset of the
spring 2011 session. The bill
was termed local since it ap-
plies to a specific area.
After clearing two House
of Representatives commit-
tees and one House subcom-
mittee with overwhelmingly
favorable votes, HB1311
was approved on the House
floor on April 27 with 113
yea votes and five nays.
Since this was a local bill,
no companion Senate bill
was required, but the Sen-
ate was also required to vote
on the bill. The Senate vote
took place on May 2, with 39
senators voting in favor of
the bill and no nay votes.


While removing the re-
quirement of a state permit
for Walton County property
owners who constructed ar-
moring, HB1311 calls for
the state Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) to "develop an infor-
mational list" of the armor-
ing structures to which the
legislation is to apply and
their location. It also states
that any of the armoring
structures receiving dam-
age, as in a storm, amount-
ing to more than 50 percent
of their replacement cost
would require a DEP per-
mit for reconstruction---and
that the permit application
would be subject to "all ap-
plicable statutory and rule
requirements" of the state.
Among these would be prop-
er construction and siting
of the armoring. However,
aside from this provision, the
legislation does not address
construction standards for


the existing armoring, nor
does it provide any remedy
for armoring structures that
may be encroaching off the
property of the person who
had constructed the armor-
ing. The measure does state
that nothing contained in it
authorizes such encroach-
ments.
Federal endangered spe-
cies issues raised in con-
nection with the armoring,
which in the normal proce-
dure would have been dealt
with in conjunction with the
state permitting process, are
not addressed in the provi-
sions of the legislation and
will remain to be resolved
by the property owners.
According to Bryan Cher-
ry, aide to Representative
Coley, the legislation will
become effective either upon
signature by Governor Scott
or automatically after 60
days from May 6, the end of
the legislative session.

The official Child Abuse
Prevention Month of April
may be over, but we are not
off the hook, folks. Child
abuse prevention is 24
hours a day, 7 days a week,
365 days a year. Some may
ask why should I care about
preventing child abuse. You
should care about the rising
cost of chronic health prob-
lems, mental health servic-
es, substance abuse, domes-
tic violence, animal abuse,
juvenile delinquency, crimi-
nal behavior and the econo-
my. These issues affect all
of us and the prevention of
child abuse and. neglect has
a positive impact on all of
these issues.
Last month I shared
the five protective factors
that are crucial in order for
parents to keep their fami-
lies strong. It is important
to hear these again. I am
hopeful if people read this
a second time, it will leave
a lasting impression. Leave
an impression that we can
both individually and collec-
tively prevent child abuse,
not only we can do it but we
believe we can do it. We do
it because every child de-
serves to be safe and loved.
The first factor is knowl-
edge of parenting and child
development. Being a par-
ent is part natural and part
learned. There is extensive
research linking effective
parenting to healthy child
development.
The second factor is nur-
turing attachment. A close
bond helps parents un-
derstand, respond to and
communicate with their
children. A child's early ex-
perience of being nurtured
and developing a bond with
a caring adult affects all as-
pects of behavior and devel-
opment. When parents and
children have strong, warm
feelings for one another
children develop trust that
their parents will provide
what they need to thrive,
including love, acceptance,
positive guidance and pro-
tection.
The third factor, paren-
tal resilience, means being
strong and flexible. Parents
who can cope with stress
of everyday life, as well as
an occasional crisis, have
resilience, they have in-
ner strength necessary to
bounce back when things
are not going well.
The fourth factor is social
connection. Parents need
friends. Parents with a so-
cial network of emotionally
supportive friends, family
members and neighbors of-
ten find that is easier to
care for their children and
themselves. Most parents
need people they can call on
at times when they need a
sympathetic listener, advice
or concrete support. Re-
search has shown that par-
ents who are isolated, with
few social connections, are
at higher risk for abusive
and neglectful behavior.
And finally, the fifth fac-
tor is concrete support in
times of need. Simply put,
we all need help sometimes.
Partnering with parents to
identify and access resourc-
es in the .community may
help prevent the stress that
sometimes lead to child mal-
treatment. Providing con-
crete support may also help
prevent the unintended ne-
glect that sometimes occurs











Sandestin wine fest uncorks the



fun with winemaker Marc Mondavi


THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY Sandestin Wine Festival
featured more than 500 bottles and a best of show red and


best of show white.


By ASHLEYAMASON
Feel the sun warming
you, the salty aroma of
the Gulf of Mexico, and a
glass of one of the world's
best wines in hand. You're
at the 25th anniversary
Sandestin Wine Festival.
From April 28-May 1, the
festival featured wine-
makers dinners, char-
ity wine auctions, retail
tents and grand tast-
ings including the best
of show, Bodegas Caro
2007 from the Southern
Hemisphere and Rom-
bauer 2009 Chardonnay
from Napa Valley. With
nearly 100 vineyards
present, oenophiles had
plentiful options.
At a kickoff brunch,
Marc Mondavi of The
Peter Mondavi Family
and proprietor of Charles
Krug Winery shared his
family's story of unlike-
ly twists which led his
brother, Peter, to kick
off the inaugural festival
25 years ago with Chan's
Wine World owner Chan
Cox.
A third-generation
winemaker, Mondavi's
grandparents emigrat-
ed from Italy in 1904
and settled in Virginia,
Minn. where they owned
a boarding house. Soon
after they bought, a gro-
cery store and quadru-
pled its business by way
of shipping and selling
grapes for local Italians
to make homemade wine.


Interestingly, during Pro-
hibition the head of each
household was permitted
to make 200 gallons of
wine per year. In 1922,
the family moved to Cali-
fornia and 12 years later
bought a winery. The rest
is as fine as wine; speak-
ing of which, Marc loves
the sauvignon blanc, af-
fectionately terming it
his "patio wine."
Patios may not have
been available to festival
goers, but a lush green
fronting live music and
benches in the shade were
ample for a few moments'
rest before trying a new
favorite. Charles Krug
Winery created a spe-
cial Bordeaux blend, the
Sandestin Cuvee, to com-
memorate the 25th anni-
versary. Mondavi made
himself available to sign
all bottles purchased.


THE EXTENSIVE WINE
LIST detailed Bronze, Silver
and Gold buys.


CHAN COX (r), owner of Chan's Wine World, helped
bring the first wine festival to Northwest Florida in 1986.


CHEF CRYSTAL CASTILLO shared her love of the farm
to table connection among Northwest Florida growers and
restaurants.


MARC MONDAVI spoke to an array of media and spon-
sors, including Coastal Living, at a celebrity chef brunch
Saturday.


THIS "TOAD IN A HOLE" was so delicious one could
croak, prepared by Sandestin Investments executive chef
Roy Khoo.


GRITS AND GRILLADES featured local Angus beef from
Ponce de Leon's Cypress Cattle Co., as well as farm fresh
collard greens and squash blossom.


MORE THAN 600 wines
were available to sample at
the grand tasting, followed
by a charity wine auction.


THE CORKS KEPT POPPING with featured tastes of
Chile, Germany, and South Africa from Vineyard Brands.
