New Dr. Daniel H. Simmons Health


Clinic serving limited access patients


By REID TUCKER
Freeport's Community
Health Center, named the
Dr. Daniel H. Simmons
- Health Clinic, aims to con-
tinue its namesake's legacy
of providing quality health
care to populations with
limited access to it.
Though the Community


Health Center, which pro-
vides health care and dental
services on a sliding scale to
uninsured patients and also
serves those on Medicaid
and Medicare, opened its
doors in February, an offi-
cial grand opening and dedi-
cation ceremony was held
Friday, Aug. 12. The center
was was named in honor of


Simmons, who served the
Freeport community for
about 30 years beginning
in the late 1890s. Simmons,
one of Florida's first licensed
physicians,* was known
throughout Walton County
for bringing medical care to
those who would have other-
wise not seen a doctor due to
limited accessibility or lack


of income.
While local dignitaries
and government officials
representing Walton Coun-
ty and the city of Freeport
were in attendance at the
ceremony, theoguest of hon-
or and keynote speaker was
former Florida governor and
U.S. Senator Bob Graham.
In addition to his reputation


as one of the most popular
governors in Florida history
and his 38 years as a public
servant, Graham was invit-
ed to attend the ceremony
as he is also one of Simmons'
grandchildren.
Though Simmons died
before Graham was born,

A PROPOSAL for seven additional boat slips at this private docking facility generated a
lo of discussion at the Aug. 11 Walton County Planning Commission meeting.



Boat slips, gun club clear


planning commission.


By DOTTY NIST.
The Walton County
Planning Commission has
recommended approval of
seven new boat slips in the
Daugette subdivision area,
a gun club near DeFuniak
Springs, and eight small-
scale amendment requests
involving land use classifi-
cation changes to parcels in
various areas of the county.
The decisions took place
at the planning commis-
sion's Aug. 11 regular meet-
ing at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.
New planning commis-
sion member David Kramer
was welcomed by Chairman
Tom Terrell. Kramer will
serve in the seat vacated by
William Maxson, who had
resigned.
Of the items on the agen-
da, the boat slip proposal
brought on the most discus-
sion.
Applicant Tom Stein had
previously submitted plans
for 10 new boat slips on the


canal at his Ricker Street
property in the Daugette
subdivision. The lot con-
tains a 2,000 square-foot
office building with a three-
bedroom apartment. There
are currently four boat slips
on the property. The dock-
ing facility is not open to the
public and that status is to
continue.
Mac Carpenter of Walton
County Planning and Devel-
opment Services explained
that, through a compromise,
Stein had agreed to reduce
the number of new boat slips
to seven. Carpenter said the
applicant was proposing to
utilize existing parking on
the property for the boat
slips through a shared park-
ing agreement, with the 19
parking spaces to be avail-
able for uses associated with
the slips only after business
hours on weekdays and dur-
ing the weekend.
Carpenter said no space
would be provided for boat
trailers on the property;


they must be removed from
the property after launch-
ing. Prohibitions have also
been placed on parking and
placing boat trailers on the
county right-of-way in the
vicinity.
For seven additional boat
slips that the applicant has
indicated he would like to
add in a second phase of the
project, along with any ad-
ditional development on the
property, a separate appli-
cation and approval would
be required, Carpenter told
the planning commission-
ers.
Carpenter said the ap-
plicant has also agreed that
covenants and leases for the
boat slips will prohibit peo-
ple using the slips from en-
tering the residential drive-
way located across from the
property
An engineer representing
the applicant commented
that parking had been the

Freeport Town


Planters get keys to


the Blount House


By BEN GRAFTON
At the City Council meet-
ing of Aug: 9, Becky Buxton,
of the Freeport Town Plant-
ers, addressed the Council
saying the Planters, which
were organized in 1991 with
the encouragement of the
mayor and Council; were
proud that the mayor and
Council have such interest
in the town and its people.
She said the Planters were,
"taken aback" when the
Blount House, which they
have adopted as their home,
was vandalized. She said,
however, that the steps
taken by the city to tighten
control over access to the
Blount House are a bur-
den to the Planters and she
asked for keys to the new
Blount House locks so that
the Planters have ready ac-
cess there. Mayor Mickey
Marse responded saying
that the city did not know
what was hi the Planters'
storage building on the
property and that the city
would like to have a key to
that building. To solve the
mutual access problem an
exchange of keys was pro-.
posed and approved by the
Council.
In other matters taken up at
the brief business session:
-City Attorney Clayton Ad-
kinson presented the second
reading of an ordinance to
annex the Gillispie property
of five. acres, more or less, off
of Bay Loop Road East into
the city. The Council ap-
proved the ordinance.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
opened the subject of the
plans and specifications
package for the solar panel
to be installed at the Sports
Complex. Consultant Bob
Jones said that the package
contained some word pro-
cessor mistakes that must
be corrected before submis-
sion, but since the "drop


dead date" for completion of
the project was April 1, 2012
sending the package in for
approval was needed. The
Council approved the pack-
age subject to editing to cor-
rect the errors.
Engineer Cliff Knauer
reported that discussions
with ,utility companies were
underway for the Wagon
Wheel water well project.
Praestare Eigineering
submitted a written report
to the Council with high-
lights of work on projects
under their management.
These included statements
that interior inspections of
water tanks were to begin
on Aug. 16; that construc-
tion is underway on the well
house for No. 2 water well;
that the permit for reloca-
tion of the Shipyard Road
lift station has been submit-
ted to the Department of
Environmental Protection
and project materials have
been ordered by the contrac-
tor; that work is progressing
on the Waste Water Treat-
ment Plant upgrade; and
that plans for the reloca-
tion of utility lines along the
right of way for the U.S. 331
widening project have-been
submitted to the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
for review.
Haynes said that she
would have enough material
for the second budget work-
shop the week of Aug. 15 and
she asked the Council to set
a workshop date. The Coun-
cil approved the request by
scheduling a workshop for 7
p.m. on Aug. 18.
Councilwoman Elizabeth
. Brannon reported that leg-
islation survey forms have
been received from the
League of Cities office. She
asked the Council to please
review the city's needs and
feedback ideas for legisla-
tive action in 2012.

Speaking



in



code


By BRUCE COLLIER
Last week the Walton County Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) held a workshop to consider changes to the
county's Code Enforcement Board (CEB). Herald-Breeze re-
porter Dotty Nist attended and wrote an excellent account
of the meeting, which you can read in this week's edition.
I admire Dotty's ability to lay out a story when she cov-
ers these meetings. It isn't easy, especially when comments
draw the meeting away from its stated subject. In this case,
the subject was the "code enforcement board meetings and
procedures." That sounds pretty broad to me, but appar-
ently the BCC wanted to narrow the discussion to composi-
tion of the board and to cost-savings.
It was proposed that a special magistrate be appointed in
place of the current seven-member board. Some counties in
Florida do this, employing attorneys or retired judges. The
current board works for free. Magistrates are paid by the
hour. Can't cut costs that way, right? On the other hand,
the current volunteer board employs an attorney adviser
and court reporter, both of whom are paid. Even subtract-
ing the attorney adviser, you'd still have to have a court
reporter. Sounds like a draw.
Why consider a magistrate? It was suggested that people
might take a magistrate more seriously, since he or she
would be an attorney, and that one person trained in the
law could make up their mind more quickly than seven who
weren't. This may have motivated David Kramer's comment
about whether it was better for people to deal with their
neighbors or "some retired judge who sits on the throne of
God."
David is a smart guy with plenty of experience in proper-
ty-related matters in this area, and years of experience on
the CEB. He said that most people coming before the CEB
want to comply, and that money is usually the problem. I
assume he meant money needed to come into compliance,
not money to pay fines, because according to another com-
mentator, there's about a half-million in uncollected fines
sitting out there.
That's $500,000 owed the county. If unpaid fines act as
a lien on property, why hasn't action been taken on that?
That said, why are increased fines being considered, since
it. seems they aren't being collected anyway? If a magistrate
would help with that, he or she would be /worth the fee.
Still.... "
A lot of other things were discussed at the workshop,
some of which were off the stated point, but Commissioner
Sara Comander raised what I think was the crucial ques-
tion. Speaking on code enforcement officers, she asked, "Do
they have the power to do their job?" and "Do they need
more authority?"
Board composition, whether it be volunteers, special
magistrate, or a man behind a curtain, is irrelevant if the
code can't be understood and isn't being consistently en-
forced. All the intelligence and good will in the world on
the part of the,CEB won't fix what they don't have the tools
to do. Unfortunately, Comander's question was deferred to
another workshop, the one where they will talk about the
horse. Last week's was apparently about the cart.

I LETERTO HE DITR


Editor:
On Sept. 1, 1977 the DeFuniak Herald published a let-
ter entitled "Dear Kindergarten Teacher." This article was
written by my mother. Thirty-three years have passed, and
now I am the grandmother and my granddaughter starts
to school this week. I am sending you that letter again
because the words are as true today as they were so many
years ago.
Sara Comander
DFS
August 8, 2011
"Dear Kindergarten Teacher
A cute little girl left her home Wednesday morning head-
ing for her first day in school.
Though it was five years ago, it seems like only yesterday
that I was called and told that I was a grandmother! I've
not had enough time to love her and make doll clothes, and
now it is time for her to go to school and learn to read-my
how I'll miss reading all those stories to her.
Teacher, this is a very special little girl, and not knowing
that you would recognize her, I thought best to write and
tell you some things about her.
She is the one with the big brown eyes and the turned up
nose. A pug nose. She has lost her two front teeth and now
all she wants for Christmas "is my two front teeth." She
talks a lot, won't take a nap or eat squash, but she is a good
girl just the same. Her mother calls her a "little brat," but
mothers don't remember when they were little girls and en-
joyed "dressing up" in hats, heel shoes and lipstick. They
just want to look like a grown lady to say nothing of smell-


ing sweet.
Her vocal cords are real strong, and I'm hoping that some
day she will be another Anita Bryant or Beethoven. I am
sure that you can take her musical talent and channel it in
the right direction. (Her fingers are kind of stubby).
This girl is not going to like the rest period on the pal-
let, but she will like recess and enjoy giving the directions
for the games. If she doesn't seem to keep on sitting at her
desk, please remember that she just wants to see what the
other kids are doing and maybe give them some individu-
al help. She is good on asking questions too, they usually
start with "WHY?" that's because she is eager to under-
stand things.
Sometimes when she has done something super-good,
you may notice a furtive glance coming from the corner of
her eye. It's just a nod of approval that she seeks, or a pat
on the back: I guarantee that if you respond, she'll give
you two or three minutes of good behavior, maybe a cookie
from her lunch box. Her mother's cookies will melt in your
mouth.
She's partly yours now. We've enjoyed her for this too-
brief time, and now we share her with you. Teach and guide
her well, for she is a special little girl; who knows, someday
she may be "The First Lady."
And what, you may ask, what is her name? Her name
is Myriad, and she comes from any home where a young
mother stood Wednesday morning and proudly, with tears
in her eyes, waved good-bye.

Sincerely, A Doting Grandmother"

I am not a member of a Tea Party group. On two occa-
sions, I have attended their meetings. I was curious to see
the type of people that have drawn derogatory comments
from the national media and many politicians. I was im-
pressed by what I found. They are dedicated Americans
from all walks of life.
They are the people that have been described for many
years as the silent majority. They are the ones that have
made our country great. They are .honest, hard working,
and busy. with their careers. They are and have been the
source of magnanimous amounts of tax money that has
poured into the hands of our leaders at the highest levels of
government each year.
The difference is they are no longer silent. They meet
across the country each month in' large numbers because


they can see disaster ahead for all U.S. citizens. They saw
our national debt reach a trillion dollars during Ronald
Reagan's presidency. The debt has increased by trillions
with each president since. The United .States is on the
threshold of financial collapse and it may be too late at this
moment in time.
The saying, "The Party Is Over" could not be more true.
All politicians must immediately adjust their concentra-
tion from being re-elected to saving our nation. In my opin-
ion, both Republicans and Democrats have performed for
decades Jike irresponsible children in the world's largest
candy store. Truly, we need God's help.

Editor:
President Obama just turned the BIG 50. I couldn't have
said it any better than Congressman Allan West of Florida
when he made this statement to the president:
"Happy 50th Birthday Mr. President! While surprises
are for birthdays, it is no surprise to the American people
that your failed economic policies from TARP to your,
health care bill- have resulted in disaster for our economy.
Since taking office, unemployment has remained at or near
9 percent for 28 months, America has added $3-.4 trillion in
debt in 29 months -the equivalent of about $4 billion per
day we have an anemic housing market with record fore-
closures, and an average price of nearly $4 for a gallon of
gas. Even your budget did not receive one single vote in the
United States Senate and the icing on the cake a stock


market slide of nearly 800 points in the last few days.
While it may be hard to hear the American people's
frustration over the pop of the champagne corks and R&B
bands at your $30,000/person birthday party, the citizens
of this nation are suffering under your failed leadership.
The best present you can give the American people will be
for you and your failed economic policies to be defeated in
November of 2012."
My hats off to Congressman West for telling it like it is.
This present administration has got to go, come 2012, or
America as we know it will cease to be.
God Bless America

Editor,
A recent letter to the Editor brought out several inter-
esting thoughts, of which mostly I agree. The letter was
very worthy of thought, and I would like to comment on
many points. I won't, at least not at this time. I have one
comment: in my opinion, keeping troops overseas has been
very effective. After the loss of hundreds of thousands of
lives in World War I we came home. Twenty five years later
we had to go back and millions of lives were lost. This time
we stayed and after 65 years we did not have to do it again
in these countries. We did have to go to Vietnam, and lost
more lives, but none of them were our women and children.


And we are not speaking Chinese today.
I agree that infrastructure sorely needs renovation and
maintenance, but isn't the exorbitant gasoline taxes we pay
to the federal and local governments specifically for that
purpose (instead of being used for welfare, .extended unem-
ployment, NPR, Acorn, and subsidies for "Green" projects,
General Electric, and ethanol that uses our food to ruin
carburators)? Can the writer, or someone, explain why we
are not using these taxes in accordance with the law? Or
am I mistaken about the law?

Proposed property tax notices to be mailed August 19


Notices of Proposed Prop-
erty Taxes, also known as
TRIM (Truth in Millage)
Notices, are scheduled to
be mailed to Walton County
property owners Aug.19.
Walton County Property
Appraiser, Patrick Pilcher,
explained that the TRIM
notices are prepared and
mailed by the property ap-
praiser on behalf of all tax-
ing authorities in the coun-
ty. The notices indicate
the tax rate and amount of
individual taxes proposed


by each taxing authority for
the upcoming fiscal year.
Also found on the TRIM
notices are market and as-
sessed property values as
determined by the Property
Appraiser. Applicable prop-
erty tax exemptions are dis-
played as well.
. According to Pilcher, the
Property Appraiser certi-
fies the property value to-
tals to each taxing authority
on July 1. Within 35 days,
each of the taxing authori-
ties computes a tentative


tax rate and advises the
Property Appraiser of the
tentative tax rate. The rate
is computed by dividing the
taxing authority proposed
budget by the total taxable
property value (budget $ /
property value = tax rate).
After receiving the tentative
tax rates, the Property Ap-
praiser prepares and mails
the TRIM Notices.
Walton County Tax-
ing Authorities include the
Board of County Commis-
sion, Walton School District,


Northwest Florida Water
Management District, North
Walton Mosquito Control
District, South Walton
Mosquito Control District,
South Walton Fire District,
Argyle Fire District, Liberty
Fire District, and the mu-
nicipalities of Freeport and
DeFuniak Springs. The city
of Paxton currently does not
levy a property tax.
Walton's 2011 taxable val-
ue is set at $10,945,813,593,

The Life Of A Teacher

The life of a teacher is told
in her students each day.
She plans to fill their needs
as rewards come her way.

She wakes up in the morning
with children on her mind.
Everyone will be different,
for they're one of a kind.

The teacher stands at the door
when the school bell rings,
Who knows what fun they'll have
or what this day brings.

Their little bright faces,
are ready to begin.
As a new world now opens
they bounce right in.

-When the children go home
taking what they've learned,
the teacher smiles with joy
at respect that she's earned.

PLANNING


main issue with the propos-
al and that it had been ad-
dressed.
Lisa McCully, a Ricker
Street resident and owner
of the homes across the
street from the property,
disagreed. She objected to
the increase in noise and
traffic and the "oil, gas, and
partying" that she was sure
would accompany the ex-
pansion of the docking facil-
ity. "We have no clue who's
coming and going," McCully
said. She said vehicles from
Stein's property had already
used her driveway for back-
ing up, turning around, etc.,
and she did not see how they
could be kept from doing so
in the future.
Mike Weimorts, who lives
in the vicinity of the proper-
ty, said he was not surprised
about the proposal due to a
neighborhood marina being
envisioned there at one time
after plans for a golf course
that had been part of original
subdivision platting in the
1920s fell through. He had
concerns about oil from the
boats getting in the canal,
but he said his main concern
was a land use classification
change on the property from
Residential Preservation to


General Commercial.
Carpenter corrected the
latter statement. He noted
that no land use change is
proposed with the applica-
tion.
Light commercial is con-
sidered an allowable use on
lots within the subdivision
even though they are clas-
sified as Residential Preser-
vation.
Stein's engineer noted
that all boat slip lessees
would be made aware that
use of the neighboring drive-
way would not be permitted.
Planning commission mem-
bers also noted that Mc-
Cully would have the ability
to call law enforcement or
county code enforcement if
any instance of trespassing
onto her driveway were to
occur.
The engineer told the
planning commissioners
that state requirements for
flushing the canal would be
complied with and that a
well at the canal terminus,
along with groundwater
flow, would aid in the flush-
ing process. He noted that
the canal was designed as
a boat basin. A traffic study
found that traffic associated
with the proposal would be

"de minimis," he reported.
He added that there is some
noise in all neighborhoods
and that there is a noise
ordinance in effect for the
area.
At the suggestion of plan-
ning commission member
Randy Gardner, the engi-
neer agreed on behalf of
Stein that signage would
be put up on the property
addressing that use of the
driveway across the street
would not be permitted.
All five planning commis-
sion members present for
the meeting voted to recom-
mend approval of the boat
slip proposal with an accom-
panying recommendation
. that the county commission
consider including the slips
in the funding structure for
the Daugette subdivision's
Municipal Service Ben-
efit Unit (MSBU). This is a
special taxing district that
provides funding for main-
tenance of canals in the sub-
division.
Also garnering a favorable
recommendation was the
proposed Bullets & Bones
Sportsman Club, which
.will be a shooting range on
a 32.2 acre site at 36 Good-
win Road east of DeFuniak
Springs, with 7,395 square
feet of floor area. Carpenter
explained that the site was
previously used as a racing
greyhound kennel. '
He said the project is
planned in three phases
and that shooting, archery,
skeet shooting, and paint-'
ball are in the plans, along
with a gun shop and office.
Design was consistent with
NRA-recommended guide-
* lines, Carpenter noted.
"Safety was our main con-
cern," said John Johnson,
an engineer representing
applicants Scott McKinney
and Brandon Keene. The
five planning commission-
ers present all voted to rec-
ommend the project.
The panel also recom-
mended approval df a request


by the 153-acre NatureWalk
at Seagrove planned unit
development for a three-
foot porch encroachment
zone for Cottage lots in the
development and a two-foot
overhang into the side yard
setback from a minimum
18-inch above-ground level
up.
Eight proposed small-
scale amendments received
a favorable recommenda-
tion from the planning com-
missioners, but the panel
recommended for denial of
one proposed amendment
that came before them at
the Aug. 11 meeting.
Requested by Dowlin
Mayfield, the amendment
would change the land use
classification of 1.67 acres
on the south side of Sweet-
water Lane and west of U.S.
331 from Rural Village to
General Commercial.
County staff advised that
the proposal would not be
consistent with the Wal-
ton County Comprehensive
Plan due to the property not
being on a collector or arte-
rial road and not at an in-
tersection. It was noted that
comprehensive policy indi-
cates that General Commer-
cial should not be allowed
on residential streets.
Neighbors of the prop-
erty, residents of Sweetwa-
ter Lane, expressed concern
that the land use change
would increase traffic on
their street and that chil-
dren playing on Sweetwater
Lane would be endangered
by traffic that would result
from the proposed reclassifi-
cation.
The planning commis-
sioners voted 5-0 to recom-
mend denial of the' amend-
ment.

The planning commis-
sion's recommendations will
be provided to the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners, who will
make the final decisions on
the proposals.


This weekend, I received
one of those phone calls: the
ones where as soofi as you
hear the air on the other end
of the line your breath catch-
es, the environment around
you shifts. A dear family
friend, a second father to
my husband, passed away.
I've known John Yearwood,
or rather he has known me,
my entire life, and an era
without his corny, self-dep-
recating humor seems im-
possible.
I met John's son, Gabe,
when I first began dat-
ing my husband. My hus-
band and Gabe, the best of
friends, were an infamous
duo-on the football field,
with women, when it came
to eating vinegar chicken.
Rarely a week passed when
my husband (boyfriend at
the time) didn't rave about
getting together with Gabe,
John, and Sue to see how
many vinegar chickens the
pair could down this time.
I'm mournfully regretful,
now, we never did.
Although we spent time
together, I didn't immedi-
ately enter a friendly rap-
port with Gabe. Truthfully,


he frightened my adolescent
notions, so far from adher-
ing to anything conventional
as he was. Gabe was bigger
than life, he questioned ev-
erything, and he boasted the
same red-headed, lovable
pomposity as his father.
The loss of Gabe, five
years ago, in a car accident
is unspeakable. There are
no words. But in the time
since, John has often graced
our doorway, cracking jokes
and telling tales of boys be-
ing boys, still pondering the
vinegar chicken cookout.
We, now with our son, have
visited John and Sue, and
watched old football tapes
of the best friends, imagin-
ing our little toddler in a
football jersey in the years
ahead.
I don't know if there is
a heaven, but, if so, I know
John Yearwood celebrated
the happiest day he's had
in a long time, and two red-
headed men, a father and
son, are giving the original
pair one hell of a time. For
here on 'this Earth, John
loved his wife and loved his
son. What more could be
asked of a man?

Policies and Procedures on Retention and Promotion
General Policies
No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute
social promotion or administrative placement. Promotion procedures assure that students promoted
. within the district can benefit from the next grade level of instruction and that those who earn a diploma
from high school have met or exceeded all the requirements described by the. State of Florida and by the
Walton County School Board. Promotion decisions are based upon the following:
Progress tests
Classroom assignments and performance tasks
Daily observation
State and district tests
Proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics
Mastery of the Sunshine State Standards as outlined in the various Grade Level Expectations; and/or
0 Other objective data
Elementary Promotion Criteria
Grades K-2
Promotion from grades 1 and 2-is based on evidence the student has met the Next Generation Standards
in reading and math as indicated by a final grade of"D" or above, or through evidence of mastery of the
standards 4s determined through class or individual assignments, projects, portfolios, skills checklists,
*performance tasks, norm-referenced and/or locally determined assessments.
Grade 3
Promotion from third grade is based on evidence the student has met the Next Generation Standards in
four or more academic subjects, three of which must be reading, language arts and mathematics. Science
:and social studies are considered academic subjects. Mastery is indicated by a final grade of"D" or
above, or through evidence of mastery of the standards as determined through teacher observation, class
or individual assignments, projects, portfolios, skills checklists, performance tasks, norm-referenced and/
or locally determined assessments, AND evidence the student.achieved a score of Level 2 or above on
the FCAT Reading Assessment as specified in s. 1008.25, F.S or met the requirements for a Good Cause
Waiver. The School Board may only exempt students from mandatory retention for good cause.
Grades 4-5
Promotion from grades 4 and 5 is based on evidence the student has met the Next Generation Standards
in four or more academic subjects, three of which must be reading, language arts and mathematics. Science
and social studies are considered academic subjects. Mastery is indicated by a final grade of"D" or above,
or through evidence of mastery of the standards as determined through class or individual assignments,
projects, portfolios, skills checklists, performance tasks, norm-referenced and/or locally determined
assessments.
In grades K-3, students who are unsuccessful in meeting the grade level promotion criteria may be
considered for a waiver of these criteria based upon the good cause exemptions defined by State Board
Rule. Students may be exempted from mandatory retention for good cause (1008.25(5)(b) F.S.). Good
cause exemptions shall be limited to the following:
a. English Language Learner students who have had less than two (2) years of instruction in an
English for Speakers of Other languages program.
b. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates participation in the state
assessment program is not appropriate. State Board Rule 6A-1.0943 specifies that such students
must have a demonstrated cognitive ability that prevents them from completing required
coursework and meeting the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, even with appropriate
and allowable'course modifications and require extensive direct instruction to accomplish the
application and transfer of skills and competencies needed for domestic, community living,
leisure and vocational activities.
c. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on the SAT-10 alternative
assessment. State Board Rule sets acceptable levels of performance as a score at or above the
45th percentile on the SAT-10 or the 51l percentile on a parallel form of the SAT-9. The earliest
the alternative assessment may be administered for promotion purposes is after the Grade 3
FCAT reading scores have been received from the state or the last two weeks of school.
whichever comes first.
d. Students who demonstrate, through a student portfolio, that they are reading on grade level as
evidenced by demonstration of mastery of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in
reading equal to at least a level 2 performance on the FCAT. The Third Grade Assessment
Portfolio created by Beacon Educator in partnership with Just Read, Florida! and following
guidelines set forth by the state will be utilized to verify level 2 performance.
e. Students with disabilities who have an IEP or Section 504 Plan reflecting they have received
intensive remediation in reading for more than two (2) years but are still deficient in reading and
have been previously retained in Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2 or Grade 3.
f. Students who have had a progress monitoring plan in reading two (2) or more years and were
previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2 or grade 3 for a total of two (2) years. If
a student is promoted under this exemption, he/she must receive intensive reading instruction
that includes an altered instructional day based upon a progress monitoring plan that includes
specialized diagnostic information and specific reading strategies for each student. The district
shall assist schools and teachers to implement research-based reading strategies that have shown
to be successful in improving reading among low-performing readers.
Any student who is retained may be assigned any time during the first reporting period of the next.
school year to the next higher grade upon recommendation of the teacher and approval of the Principal and
parent, if it has been determined the standards have been met and the student will benefit from instruction
at the higher grade level.
Middle Grades Promotion Criteria
A student shall earn three academic units each year to be promoted from grade six or seven.
Academic units include language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Prior to being promoted
from grade 8, a student must have earned three academic units in all four subject areas. Additionally,
students must have earned three physical education units prior to exiting the middle grades.
Students in Grade 7 will have their reading skills assessed near the end of the school year with a
district-determined instrument (Discovery Assessments, FAIR, etc.). Those whose performance score
is substantially below grade level (equivalent to FCAT Level 1) will be retained, regardless of their
performance in their academic coursework. Parents will be notified in writing of their child's retention or
exemption from retention due to good cause.
Students who face retention as a result of this policy will be given the opportunity to take the
Stanford-10 as an alternative assessment. Students in Grade 7 who are absent during the initial
administration must demonstrate reading proficiency by scoring at or above the 45h percentile on
the reading section of the Stanford-10 before being promoted to Grade 8. Grade 7 students failing to
demonstrate the required proficiency level may be promoted for good cause if they are:
1. English Language Learner students who have had less than two years of instruction in an English
2. Students with Disabilities whose Individual Education Plan indicates participation in the state
3. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance by scoring at or above the 45t
percentile on a parallel form of the Stanford-10 or by scoring above a Level 1 on the Grade


7 FCAT Reading Assessment or by showing Annual Learning Gains through an appropriate
increase in their Developmental Scale Score on the FCAT (when it is received)
4. Students who have an IEP, Section 504 Plan or a Progress Monitoring Plan that includes reading
for two or more years and were previously retained for a total of two years at any combination of
grade levels.
High School Promotion Criteria
A student must have been duly promoted from Grade 8 in order to enter Grade 9.
A student must earn five credits to be promoted to grade 10, eleven to be promoted to grade 11 and
eighteen to be promoted to grade eleven.
During the transition from the 4x4 block schedule to seven period days the following promotion
requirements must be met. During the 2009-20 10 school year, promotion to Grade 10 will require 5 earned
credits, promotion to Grade 11 will require 12 earned credits and promotion to Grade 12 will require 20
earned credits. During the 2010-2011 school year, promotion to Grade 10 will require 5 earned credits,
promotion to Grade I1 will require 11 earned credits and promotion to Grade 12 will require 19 earned
credits. During the 2011-2012 school year, promotion to Grade 10 will require 5 earned credits, promotion
to Grade 11 will require 11 earned credits and promotion to Grade 12 will require 18 earned credits.
An exceptional education student who has been properly staffed into a special program is assigned to
a grade according to the recommendation of the IEP Committee.
An LEP student may be retained only by the decision of an LEP Committee. LEP students who are
identified as being substantially below grade level in reading in English, but who are proficient in their
home language may not be retained.
High school students will be required to earn 24 credits to graduate.

deep in the country and how
many of the doctor's less for-
tunate patients often paid in
chickens or garden vegeta-
bles when money was tight.
Graham said Simmons' ded-
ication to those with limited
access to health care is the
goal of the Freeport Health
Center that bears his name.
"I'm proud of my grand-
father," Graham said. "The
easy thing would have been
to go to a place like Pensa-
cola or Tallahassee or some
larger city but he picked
Walton County. He came
to this community because
he saw a need. I know that
Doctor Simmons would con-
sider this to be one of the
great honors of his legacy to


this community."
The Dr. Daniel H. Sim-
mons Health Clinic is one
of three Federally Quali-
fied Health Centers (FQHC)
opened by PanCare of Flor-
ida, Inc., a nonprofit health
care organization based in
Bay County. The facility has
five exam rooms and four
dental suites and is staffed
by medical employees in-
cluding a nurse practitioner,
a full-time dentist, nurses
and medical assistants with
a sixth full-time employee
soon to be filled.
After a two-year applica-
tion process, PanCare re-
ceived a $540,000 loan and
a grant of $100,000 from
the United States Depart-


THE NEW COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER, located on SR-20 in Freeport, is named

ment of Agriculture Rural
Development (which helps
small towns acquire health
clinics and water and sewer
improvements) to. secure fi-
nances for the purchase and
renovation of the building
from which the clinic now
operates. While the clinic
has seen a steady increase
in the number of patients
it has served since open-
ing in February, with some
120-plus appointments
scheduled in July, PanCare
President and Chief Oper-
ating Officer Mike Hill said
the health center is already
looking to expand its servic-
es.
Planned updates include
a mobile medicalldental
unit that can range as far
afield as Paxton, a radiol-
ogy facility and a lab at the
clinic's main site. Hill said
providing the health clinic's
services on a sliding scale
according to patients' ability
to pay will have a tremen-
dous impact for good i'n the
community.
"We're here to stay," Hill
said. "It's still a work in
process but we anticipate
seeing 6,000 [patients] when
we're at capacity.
"They've had access to
medical care (in Freeport)
in the past but there were
very few people that were
willing to see large numbers
of uninsured or indigent
'(patients). It's a huge asset
to this community and the
low-income population."


THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER at the naming ceremony was
former Florida governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham,
who is also the grandson of the new Freeport medical clin-
ic's namesake: Daniel Hutchinson Simmons. (Photo by'Reid


Tucker)



Basically, the sliding
scale works like this: un-
insured patients pay a cer-
tain amount for a doctor's
visit based on their income
and the number of people in
their family. Under this pro-
gram, qualifying patients
can pay as little as $25 for a
dental visit, something Hill
said is a huge advantage for
low-income families and the
community at large as this


cuts down on overcrowding
in emergency rooms.
Florida has 45 Federally
Qualified Health Center
corporations, PanCare of
Florida among them, and
the new Freeport location is
the 301st such clinic to open
in the state. Because. of the
ongoing health care debate
within the federal govern-
ment, Hill said Community
Health Centers like the one
* appropriately named for
Daniel Hutchinson Sim-
mons are a sterling example
of what can be accomplished
when citizens and organiza-
tions work together.
"This dedication ceremo-
ny is truly recognition that
good things happen when
citizens of the community
come together to address
issues that affect the life-
style' and the quality of life
for their fellow citizens,"
Hill said. "I'm really looking
forward to having this be
a beacon for the less-fortu-
nate who need medical and
dental care."

From DIANNA VAN HORN
A day too gorgeous to be
inside didn't affect atten,
dance at this year's com-
memorative event for the
Milton Memorial Birthing
Center. Instead, a room-
filling crowd gathered at
the Flowersview Commu-
nity Center for a great meal,
visits with friends old and


new, and a series of musical
treats all designed to mark
the founding and continuing
service of the birthing cen-
ter.
Named after its founder,
Gladys Milton, the center
has been an asset to women
in northwest Florida and
lower Alabama since 1976.


Gladys herself delivered
more than 3,000 babies,
and her daughter, Maria,
has continued the tradition.
Since 1980, the center has
had an annual celebration
to commemorate the center
and celebrate the babies
born there.
. Continuing the tradition
added 10 years ago, this


year's event included musi-
cal presentations by area
residents, many of who were
born at the center. Head-
lining the presentations
were the P&P Gospel Sing-
ers, who have performed
at all but one of the 35 an-
nual events. Joining them
this year were Nina Nelson
on the keyboard, Lyndsey
Johnson Hand on guitar,
Nicholas Thomas and the
Beulah Male Chorus, and
the Williams Brothers.
Many long-time area
residents remember Gladys
Milton (1924-1999), who
grew up in Flowers Quar-
ters (now known as Flow-
ersview). Gladys began de-
livering children in 1959 by
traveling around to homes,
then opened the center in
1976. Her name was in the
news for several years as she
helped lead the fight to keep
midwives a legal option in
the state of Florida which
tried to shut down the clinic
several times. Gladys co-
authored two books and was
featured in several national
magazines. In 1992, she was


awarded the Sage Femme
by the Midwives Alliance of
North America. She was in-
ducted in the Florida Wom-


en's Hall of Fame in 1994
and in the Okaloosa County
Women's Hall of Fame in
2001.


THE BEULAH MALE CHORUS, and featured singer
Nicholas Thomas, were soundly applauded during their
presentations.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
It the start of a new school
year and I am concerned
about my youngest son. He
is small for his age and gets
along well with other kids,
but with all the recent news
about bullying, I am con-
cerned he might get picked
on as he moves into .middle
school.
My husband has told him
to stick up for. himself and
not to shy away if someone
tries to bully him. I, on the
other hand, think he should
tell us or his teacher. What
advice do you have for par-
ents as well as kids about
bullying that could maybe
help in our situation?

Worried Walton Mom

Dear Worried,
Bullying is supposed to be
an epidemic with new media
and so many new ways of
communicating. I know that
bullies have been around
forever and there are a few
ways of shutting them down,
as well as understanding
why they behave that way.
First, you need to tell
your son that reporting to a
teacher, when he or a class-
mate is bullied is not tat-
tling. It's the teacher's job
to maintain some sense of
decorum between students
and they should be alerted if
there is a student trying to
cause problems with others.
Bullies learn their behav-
ior, usually by being bullied
themselves at home or else-
where. These children need
help as well.
Secondly, your husband
is not far off track from what
experts are now saying is
the best way to combat this
bad behavior. Often, if the
bullied child will redirect a
question to the bully, it is
enough to stop the episode,
such as asking them "why
would you say that" when
called a name or such. Also,
there is power in numbers.
If your son and others find
themselves tormented by a
particular child or children,


then they need to band to-
gether and show the bully or
bullies have more than one
kid to deal with: Most bul-
lies aren't really tough, they
don't know how to commu-
nicate and have low self-es-
teem. Role playing with kids
and letting them respond in
different ways will help pre-
pare them for uncomfortable
situations at school.
Lastly,' let your child
know. that they can rely on
and communicate with you.
The best defense in the end
against bullies is a *for a
child to have healthy self-
esteem and understand that
their view of themselves is
much more important and
on track than one from an-
other child who is obviously
pained and troubled enough
to lash out at other children.
Be there for your child, rein-
force their positive behavior
without trying to fix every-
thing for them and keep a
line of communication open

Lowell Lee Lotspeich,
born on Nov. 10, 1934 in
Miami, Fla., passed away
on Friday, Aug, 12, 2011 fol-
lowing a heart attack and
complications arising from
by-pass surgery.
Lowell was an enormous-
ly gifted architect, planner,
writer and artist; he envi-
sioned, transformed and
reflected the world around
him in a unique way that
had a profound impact upon
everyone he met or were
blessed by collecting his
works of art. Most of his life
was spent in Winter Park,
Fla.; he briefly lived in Tal-
lahassee Fla., but since
1,999, he had lived in his
beloved Seaside/Santa Rosa
Beach, Fla. area where his
paintings have been shown
in galleries for the past 12
years.
Lowell Lotspeich touched
so many people's lives with
his spirit, his courage, hu-
mor, rhusical talents, and
his deep devotion and love
for our Lord Jesus Christ.
His faith shone like a bea-
con in spite of the challeng-
es of Parkinson's disease. As
a graduate of the University
of Florida, a member of the
American Institute of Ar-
chitects, board of directors
of Central Florida Audu-
bon Society, co-founder and
past chairman of the Winter
Park Sidewalk Art Festival,
and most recently as an ac-
tive member of his church
congregation, Lowell always
gave of himself and cared
for others.
Lowell is preceded into
the arms of our Heavenly
Father by his parents, Low-
ell Wilson and Bonnie May;
one son, Lee, and his neph-
ew Charlie.
He is survived in life by
his loving wife, Catherine
Dickson; his beloved daugh-
ter, and son, Lorelei Lotspe-
ich Phillips and Karl Lotspe-
ich; two stepsons, Jonathan
Dickson and Evan Dickson;
one sister Ann Brandt;
nephew, Jim Brandt, and

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

We miss you,
the Trentham

In Loving Memory

of Gregory Lezail Bell

March 10, 1964 August 18, 1990

It's been 21 years ago that God called your name, and heavenly angels escorted you
home. We went about our days but they have not been the same. The loving memories
of you have not lessened; our love for you has not diminished.
We still miss you, Greg.
Our thoughts of you we forever hold dear. The space you left in our hearts remain
from year to year. You left us with precious memories; your smile is still our guide.
Although we can't see your face, you are always at our side. Our chain was broken but
in God's infinite wisdom, we will see you again.
Love never dies.


We love you,
James, Doreatha, Lynn

25th Annual Sandestin
Triathlon
10B


5 Questions with Freeport football coach Jim Anderson


1. As you prepare for the
2011 season, what do you
see as your team's strengths
as the Kickoff Classic with
Walton draws near on Au-
gust 26?
Although we have a
smaller number of seniors
than the last few years, they
are stepping up and becom-
ing excellent team leaders.
I also feel we have a strong
secondary and a solid kick-
ing game.

2. After 10 years at Free-
port, which athletes that
you have coached stand out
or keep in touch with your
program?
It's been a great 10 years. I


appreciate all the hard work
all the players and coaches
have put into the program.
Any success we've had has
been greatly boosted by the
fact that everybody comes
together at Freeport and
supports the team, from the
administration to the quar-
terback club to the students
and staff and the commu-
nity. We try to keep in touch
with as many former play-
ers as possible. The two who
spend the most time with
us are currently coaches on
our staff, Shaun Arntz and
Lloyd Anderson.

3. Freeport High School
has won 20 games the last


two seasons in the sport of
football, which is the most
success in the school's his-
tory in that sport. What do
you have to do to keep that
going in 2011?
To keep the success of the
last two years going, we're
going to have to be physical
up front and play very smart
football.

4. Several of your athletes
missed out on spring prac-
tice due to the great run by
the Freeport baseball team
at the end of the athletic
year in May. How do you
feel the younger players did
in filling their shoes in the


spring game?
At this point, I'm glad
we got a chance to work the
younger players more in the
spring. It shows in practice.
It will certainly help us this
season.

5. What do you think of
the new Rural Class A des-
ignation and your district
that features Jay, Baker
and Northview in football?
We're happy with the Ru-
ral school classification. The
district is what I expected.
We've been playing these
teams frequently the last
two years. They're all well
coached and physical up
front.


FREEPORT FOOTBALL COACH Jim Anderson.


5 Questions with South Walton football coach Bill Wiles


1. After coaching the
team through the spring
and the first few days of fall
practice, how do you feel
the team is coming along in
learning your system and
adapting .to your coaching
style? I am pleased with the
effort and attitude of the
kids. We have got to learn to
come out every day and give
an all-out effort both physi-
cally and mentally. We have
to learn to focus and prac-
tice with intensity. That is
a must if we expect to win
football games. Overall, I
love my team.

2. What do you think of
the new Rural Class A desig-
nation and your district that
features Chipley, Holmes
County and Panama City
Bozeman? Its time has come.
It is a great thing. I am very
. appreciative to the FHSAA,
the Urban/Rural committee
and all the people who put
in so much work to make it


happen. I think you will see
the rural classification will
have some excellent football
teams. I also know there
will be some great football
games played in that clas-
sification. I think it will be a
success and I also believe we
might see two classifications
two years from now.

3. As a coaching veteran,
what do you like about South
Walton's facilities, location
and players as compared
to other places you have
coached? The facilities are
very nice. We are blessed to
have the facilities we have.
We are working to make
our fieldhouse better with
a little elbow grease, some
paint, and some eye appeal.
My wife and son love the
area, as do I. They love the
beach! I have enjoyed living
everywhere that I have been
blessed to teach/coach. I
love it here. The kids, teach-
ers, administration, and my


fellow coaches are awesome
people. I love my players
and have high expectations
for them on the field and off.
I want them to get an edu-
cation, be men of character,
and play hard.

4. What style of foot-
ball will fans see in a Bill
Wiles coached team? Hope-
fully, hard-nosed, physical,
and a team that plays with
class. Usually the team that
works the hardest, that is
most prepared (mentally
and physically) has a shot to
win. We want to be physical
on defense. We want to run
to the ball and hit folks. Of-
fensively, we want to control
the football, control the pace
of the game, not turn the
ball over, and score points.
We will do what we need to
do to give our kids the best
chance to be successful.

5. Are you happy' with
the number of players in the


program and. what do you
see as your team's strengths
as we approach the August
26 Kickoff Classic with
Vernon? We have excellent
numbers right now. We had
a great summer. Of course


we have not put the pads
on yet, so we will see how
many "football" players we
have when we get the pads
on. Football is a tough game
for tough people. We will
see how many tough folks


we have pretty quick! The
strength of the pack is the
wolf. I believe our strength
right now is that our kids
are hungry. I believe they
want to be a good team. It is
my job to teach them how.

YOLO Board hits the road to participate in SEA Paddle NYC


YOLO Board announces
that four members of Team
YOLO, John Denney, Jeff
Webber, Brody Welte and
Darian Boyle, will travel
to New York City for the
5th Annual Surfer's Envi-
ronmental Alliance SEA
Paddle NYC (www.seapad-
dlenyc.org), a 26.5 mile
paddle around the city on
Aug. 12. The event consists
of both a non-competitive
adventure paddle and an
elite division race, and is
a fundraising event for the
Surfer's Environmental Al-
liance (SEA) and various
autism non-profit organiza-
tions. Team YOLO is com-
peting in the event for the
second year in a row, and
team captain John Denney
and Brody Welte are repeat
participants of the charity
event.


"SEA Paddle NYC is a
fantastic event and YOLO
Board is honored to be able
to attend and help raise
awareness for Autism and
the Surfer's Environmental
Alliance," explained Tom
Losee, co-founder of YOLO
Board and finisher in last
year's event. "As a native
of New York, it is thrilling
for me to see SUP growing
along the East Coast and
for events of the magnitude
of SEA Paddle NYC to be
garnering both national and
international attention. Aks
a company, YOLO Board is
dedicated to supporting the
growth and unification of
the SUP community through
events such as this."
In addition to sending
Team YOLO to the event,
YOLO Board is also do-
nating a race board to all-


around waterman and Ma-
nasquan, N.J. resident Chris
Macioch. A lifeguard in Ma-
nasquan Beach for 15 years,
Macioch has participated in
educating youth about water
safety as an instructor for
junior lifeguards, through
independent, self-organized
surfing/waterman's camps
and in his current position
as a public school teacher in
New Jersey. Macioch has
raised over $5,400 to date in
charity contributions for his
entry in SEA Paddle NYC.

SEA Paddle NYC is one
stop in a busy 2011 season
of SUP events for YOLO
Board. In addition to host-
ing two Florida community
race series, YOLO Board
sponsored several regional
events including the includ-
ing The Carolina Cup, the


Lee County Bay to Gulf SUP
Race, the Gulf Coast SUP
Championships, the Key
West Paddleboard Classic
and the Watermans Paddle
for Humanity. YOLO Board
also sponsored two inter-
national events-Kalama
Kamp Costa Rica at Vista
Guapa Surf Camp and the
Highland Springs HIHO in
the British Virgin Islands.
Next up for Team YOLO is
the Battle of the Paddle Cal-
ifornia in Dana Point, CA
Sept. 24 and 25.

Team YOLO is still col-
lecting donations for SEA
Paddle NYC. All contribu-
tions are evenly distributed
to the beneficiaries of the
event. To support Team
YOLO, email info@yolo-
board.comn for additional in-
formation.

By DOTTY NIST
As requested by the state,
Walton County commission-
ers have selected the top
five projects on the coun-
ty's "wish list" for potential
funding by BP and have set
priority rankings for those
projects.
The decision took place at
the Aug. 9 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex.
These are projects pro-
posed for funding in order
to address natural resource
losses suffered by the public
as a result of the Deepwater
Horizon oil spill. The: priori-
tization is part of the Natu-
ral Resources Damage As-


sessment (NRDA) process,
which is being conducted
under regulations developed
by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administra-
tion (NOAA).
County
Adminis- .
trator Greg
Kisela ex-
plained that
the state De-
partment of .
Environmen-
tal Protec-
tion (DEP)
and the gov-
ernor's office
has request-
ed that the
commission-
ers choose
their "top .-


five" projects from the coun-
ty's list of 23 proposals and
do a ranking of the projects.
He said the state would not
be committing to honoring


the commissioners' selec-
tion or ranking but wanted
to know their preferences.
Billy McKee, county en-
vironmental manager, com-
mented that
the ranking
was part of
an effort to
divide up
early res-
toration
funding by
BP. He ex-
plained that
$1 billion of"
such fund-
ing had been
put forth
each state
impacted
by the oil


spill to get. $100 million. In
Florida, he said, that would
mean "divvying up" that
amount among $1.6 billion
of proposed projects.
In response to 'a ques-
tion, McKee said it was his
understanding that all 23
projects on Walton County's
list met the criteria for the
process. He said workshops
had been held to get public
input on potential projects
and that the public could
continue to comment and
recommend projects.
Project ,proposals are be-
ing evaluated by a trustee
council that includes of rep-
resentatives of the five gulf
coast states affected by the

Officials delay decision on code enforcement board


By DOTTY NIST
County commissioners
will engage in more dis-
cussion before considering
any changes to the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board (CEB), including re-
placing the board with a
special magistrate.
The Walton County.Board
of County Commissio.ners
(BCC) held a workshop on
the CEB on Aug. 9 at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.
The' Walton County Code
Enforcement Board consists
of seven members appointed
by the BCC, all of whom






Eddins


seeks


death


penalty


for


Cozzie

Florida State Attorney
Bill Eddins announced on
Aug. 16 that the state in-
tends to seek the death
penalty against Stephen
Anthony Cozzie regarding
the death of a 15-year-old
female in Walton County.
On July 2, 2011, a Wal-
ton County Grand Jury re-
turned an indictment charg-
ing Cozzie with first degree
murder, sexual battery, ag-
gravated child abuse, and
armed kidnapping.
The 15-year-old victim's
body was found in a wooded
area near a nature trail in
the Seagrove area of south
Walton County on June 16,
2011. She had been stran-
gled and beaten to death.
Cozzie was arrested by the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice later that same day and
charged with the murder.


are residents of the county.
Membership of the board
includes, at minimum, one
architect, one business per-
son, one engineer, one gen-
eral contractor, one subcon-
tractor, and one realtor. The.
board meets at least every
two months and operates
in a quasi-judicial format.
The board has jurisdiction
to hear alleged violations of
all codes and ordinances in
force in the county, includ-
ing but not limited to the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code and county or-
dinances.
Cases of alleged viola-
tions are brought before the
CEB by the county's code
enforcement officers if the
officers are unable to get
alleged violators' coopera-
tion in bringing their prop-
erty into compliance. CEB
authority includes findings
of violation, directives such
as "cease and desist," and
imposition of fines. Unpaid
fines become a lien on the
property.
The CEB is an indepen-
dent board whose decisions
are not subject to review by
any other county govern-
ment entity. Its decisions
may be appealed through
the court system.
The workshop had been
billed as an opportunity to
look at the composition of
the board and its meetings
and procedures, with an eye
to cost-saving measures.
Code enforcement board
members do not receive pay-
ment for their service, but an


attorney who advises board
members and attends all
board meetings does receive
payment, as does a court
reporter who records the
board's proceedings. Parties
found to have violated the
code are often assessed a fee
equal to attorney and court
reporter costs for the por-
tion of the meetings devoted
to their cases.
Special magistrates serve
in place of code enforce-
ment boards in some coun-
ties. They are attorneys or
retired judges who receive
payment for their service.
At the outset of the Aug.
9 workshop, County Attor-
ney Lynn Hoshihara com-
mented on direction she had
received with regard to the
workshop. Comments had
included that state statutes
in connection with the CEB
should be examined and
that the question whether
to stay with a code enforce-
ment board or go with a
special magistrate should
be considered, Hoshihara
explained. Another aspect
suggested for discussion was
whether there should be an
increase in fines that may
be imposed by the CEB, she
added.
County Administrator
Greg Kisela told the commis-
sioners that an advantage
of the special magistrate
option is better record keep-
ing. He said many counties
and cities have "migrated"
to the use of special magis-
trates for code enforcement
cases "for good reason," he


said.
District 4 Commissioner.
Sara Comander commented
that she had hoped to dis-
cuss the county's code en-
forcement officers. "Do they'
have the power they need to
do their job;" she asked, "do
they need any more author-
ity?"
Kisela agreed that, "Do
they have the tools in the
toolbox?" was a good ques-
tion. However he suggested
taking up the matter at an-
other workshop,, to include
the public's expectations
for code'enforcement, which
might differ between the
area north of the bay versus
south of the bay. He was of
the opinion that these would
be matters out of context for
the current workshop.
Comander was of the
opinion that it would be rel-
evant to consider the ques-
tion of what tools are needed
by the officers to .bring the
CEB members the informa-
tion they need to do their
job.
Hoshihara agreed with
Kisela that topics other
than the CEB would be out-
side the scope of the current
workshop. She added that
at- one time code enforce-
ment officers had been em-
powered to issue citations
but that that authority had
subsequently been with-
drawn from the officers by
the county.
Staff provided the com-
missioners with written
material, bulleted "pros and
cons" of using a special mag-


istrate for hearing code en-
forcement cases. These were
based on the experience of
Clay County after replacing
its CEB with a special mag-
istrate. Among the pros was
that no county staff overtime
was required because hear-
ings were scheduled during
business hours rather than
in the evening. "Politics re-
moved from decision due to
quasi-judicial nature," was
the second bulleted state-
ment. It was noted that
hearings moved "more ex-
peditiously" with only. one
person rendering a decision,
with an average case taking
approximately 10 minutes
to hear in contrast with a
30-minute average for hear-
ing by CEB, further reduc-
ing staff time. "Because the
Special Magistrate is an
attorney, the hearing par-
ticipants appear to take him
more seriously than Code
Board appointees," was an-
other "pro" statement in the
material. The last bulleted
"pro" item stated, "The use
of a Special Magistrate who
is. also an attorney greatly
reduces the occasions giving
rise ot claims of due process
violation."
Only two "cons" were list-
ed, the first stating that the
special magistrate is paid
"whereas a Code Board is a
group of unpaid volunteers."
However, it' continued, "the
fee is reasonable at $150/hr;
the Special Magistrate op-
erates very efficiently." The

A well-attended artists
reception was held on Fri-

west Florida State College
(NWFSC) south Walton
campus in Santa Rosa


Beach. The gathering was
the fourth installment of a
year long A+ Art exhibition
series sponsored by the Cul-
tural Arts Alliance (CAA) in
cooperation with NWFSC.
The exhibition is titled "The


EVERYONE THAT ATTENDED the reception received a
one of a kind hand-made program. (Photo by Jeffrey Pow-
ell)


Fabrics of Our Lives" and
features the talents of four
local fabric artisans.
"I think it is fantastic to
have a group of people here
that perhaps did not know
much about fiber art." said
CAA Committee member
and chair of the event Sha-
ron Hazleton. "Almost all of
the pieces are hung at eye
level so people can touch
and see the artwork. Much
of this artwork originates
from personal experience
and that can be seen in the
work. We appreciate every-
one for coming out and we
also appreciate the college
for working with us."
Each person that attend-
ed the reception received
a hand-made one of a kind
program. Artists Ann Welch
and Ann Morrell made each
of the 110 programs so that
they would be unique. At-
tendees were also welcome
to enjoy a glass of wine and
hors d'oeuvres. "The Fabrics
of Our Lives" will be on dis-
play until Sept. 30.
"I do not know how it
is possible but each show
seems to be getting better,"
said NWFSC South Walton
Center Director Julie Ter-
rell. "It is good to see the
community support local
art and artists. The college
. is very happy to be a part of
this and we are looking for-
ward to the next show which

SHOOTING THE BREEZE
with Leah Stratmann


With the indulgence of my
small, but highly disturbed
group of readers, I will con-
tinue to catalog my progress
toward health. Please feel
free to send electronic 'mail
to me to stop if you are at
all bored 'with my recita-
tion. Once I get home I will
once again be wired in to the
web, but while I am here I
cannot join the information
highway.
Monday Aug. 15 marks
the second week anniver-
sary of my stay in ICU at
Healthmark Regional Hos-
pital where I continue to be
treated as if I am royalty.
Rumor has it I will be depart-
ing on Aug.16 for home and
in another two weeks will be
checking into a rehab facil-
ity in Panama City where
they are going to teach me
how to walk correctly and
take better care of myself in
general. It has been referred
to as "boot camp" because I
will be receiving three hours
a day of physical therapy
and who knows what else?
This should be interest-
ing. How does one forget how
to take care of themselves
along the way? I shower,
I wash my hair, I don't eat
fast food, I shop for grocer-
ies, I play with my dogs, I
read, I watch movies on TV,
I prepare food for myself-
although not much lately be-
cause of severe fatigue-but
I thought I was functioning
more or less normally. Ap-
parently. I am not managing
myself very well.
I was very impressed
this week when the owner
of the hospital dropped by
to say hello. He assured me
not to worry about the fi-
nancial aspects of my care
and concentrate instead on
getting well. He certainly
didn't have to do that, but
he seemed sincere. The
cynic in me says last week's
article had something to do
with it, but my Anne Frank
heart says people are good
at heart and Dr. Thompson
meant what he said.
My article made the
rounds and people were
coming out of the woodwork
to thank me. Little do they
know that if my treatment
had been poor, snarky, or in
any way demeaning, I would
have told you that as well.
Perhaps I over share but if
you are chronicling what ap-
pears to be a seminal event
in your life, it is essential
to be thorough with the de-
tails.
One of the worst things
about being here is not be-


ing able to read as much as
I would like. I tire rapidly,
but am unable to sleep, so
I find myself watching way
too much daytime TV. There
are certainly a lot of class
action suits going on out
there, not to mention tons
of weight loss solutions, in-
surance options, personal
injury attorneys, and drugs
of every kind. My theory is
that getting your drug infor-
mation from a TV commer-
cial is what leads to partici-
pating in a class action drug
lawsuit a bit further down
the road.
.Anyway the saga contin-
ues and we shall all see how
well I handle being at home.
I do know I need some dog


action and to get away from
these dreadful TV commer-
cials.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, AUGUST 18,2011


TURTLES can be in danger from released balloons that end up in the Gulf of Mexico.


ENTANGLEMENT IN balloon debris can be dangerous to sea turtles.


Balloon releases take a toll on wildlife


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) reminds
event organizers and other
Floridians about a law pro-
hibiting the release of more
than nine lighter-than-air
balloons within a 24-hour
period.


While releasing balloons
is often an idea of groups
that wish to honor an event
or lost loved one, the FWC
encourages the public to
choose more environmen-
tally responsible actions for
their events.


Balloons released in Flor-
ida almost inevitably end
up in the Gulf of Mexico or
Atlantic Ocean. Wildlife,
especially sea turtles, mis-
take balloons for food, and
.strings attached to balloons
can entangle birds and
other animals. The release


into the atmosphere of large
numbers of balloons inflated
with lighter-than-air gases
poses a danger and nuisance
to the environment, particu-
larly to wildlife and marine
animals. Violators could in-
cur $250 in fines according
to Florida law.


There are exceptions for
scientific or meteorological
balloons released by a gov-
ernment agency or under
government contract, hot
air balloons that are recov-
ered after launching and
balloons released indoors.


The law also allows for the
release of balloons that are
biodegradable or photode-
gradable under FWC rules.
Since 1989, the FWC has re-
ceived only one such balloon
design for review, and that
balloon was not approved.

By DOTTY NIST
Walton County commis-
sioners have approved small-

The Sept. 13 hearing on the

A second (adoption) pub-
lic hearing had been sched-
uled for an amendment pro-
posed by Yellow House 30A,

ner of CR-30A and. CR-83 in

Currently an ice cream shop

erate in the two structures
on the property. At the first
hearing for the amendment.
on July 12, the request drew.
considerable discussion pro
and con, with some argu-
ing that the change would
be appropriate and oth-
ers, mainly Blue Mountain
Beach residents, warning
that it could potentially lead
to undesirable impacts on
the surrounding residen-

expressed concern that the


Citizens and visitors are
encouraged to monitor the
beach flag warning system.
The beach flags provide gen-
eral warnings about overall
surf conditions and do not
specifically advise the. pub-
lic of the presence of rip cur-
rents. However, increasing
awareness of natural condi-
tions which pose a signifi-
cant risk at the beach, such
as rip currents, is a critical
element to improve pub-
lic safety. Florida's beach
warning flag program uses
flags in four' colors accom-

for a restaurant to be devel-
oped on the property or some
other more intense use that
would cause disharmony
with residences in the vicin-
ity.
It was announced at the
outset of the Sept. 13 meet-
ing that the Yellow House
proposal had been with-
drawn by the applicants.
Walton County Planning
and Development Services
Director Wayne Dyess ex-
plained that the withdrawal,
signified. that the- request
was "essentially dead." Re-
application and readvertis-
ing of thp proposal would be
required in .order for it to be
considered again in the fu-
ture, he said.
Withdrawn as well dur-
ing the course of the meeting
was a request by Cameila

the southeast corner of Hin-
ton-Bishop Drive and Hin-
ton Drive, from Residential
Preservation to Neighbor-
hood Infill. The proposal had
raised-concerns by neighbors
at its initial public hearing
because the change would
have made eight .dwelling
units possible on the prop-
erty.
Dean Burgis, agent for the
property owner, announced
that the request would be


withdrawn and that the ap-
plicant would instead seek to
change the property classifi-
cation to Low-Density Resi-
dential. Maximum density
associated with this land
use would be four units per
acre, Burgis explained, and
no multifamily use would be
possible. .

for land use change were
approved by unanimous
vote with little discussion
taking place and no issues


being raised by the public as
they were considered.
Also approved at the Sept.

FAMILY FEATURES

up your happy hour with fresh and pure tastes, vegetables from your
yard and natural ingredients from the farmers market. Drinks and
dishes are full of flavor and come in smaller portions, so guests can
mix and match little bites and mouthwatering sips all night long.
These recipes from America's best chefs and bartenders make use of an
unexpected, wholesome ingredient pure maple syrup from Canada. This
all-natural syrup adds a hint of sweetness and depth of flavor that makes each
cocktail pairing shine.
Maple syrup is a healthy and tasty pick when choosing a sweetener. It comes
directly from tree sap and has a wide range of nutrients and antioxidants not
found in other sweeteners. According to the University of Rhode Island, maple
syrup from Canada features 54 antioxidants, some of which are similar to those
found in super foods like berries, tea, red wine and flaxseed.
Visit www.purecanadamaple.com, become a fan of Canada Maple Syrup on
Facebook, or follow @PureCanadaMaple on Twitter for more recipes to redo
your happy hour and cook with maple.


Cooking with Maple Syrup.
Maple syrup comes in different grades. Syrup made from sap tapped at the
beginning of harvest is clearer and more delicate in taste. As the season
advances, maple syrup becomes darker and more intense in flavor. The
natural sweetener offers a variety of flavor components, including nutty,
vanilla, coffee, caramel and floral notes.
Grade A maple syrup is meant for everyday use and can easily be found at
the grocery store.
Curious how to use the different grades of maple syrup for cooking? Grade
A Light works well in salad vinaigrettes, and Grade A Medium or Dark taste
delicious on breads or as a rub on meats. All pure maple syrup grades are a
great substitute for sugar or simple syrup in cocktails or non-alcoholic drinks.

Sandestin resident Susan
d Forsythe's proposed projects
were not on Walton County's
list. She said she continued
to be very concerned about
oil and tarballs in the gulf.
She has been asking for fur-
ther water testing in the
.gulf---and for the posting of
signs to encourage anyone
encountering oil to report it
so that it could be cleaned
up and reported to authori-
ties.
Jacquee Markel com-
mented that it has been
indicated at NRDA work-

shops that there is interest
with the process in what the
public would like to see with
restoration efforts. Anita
Page of the South Walton
Community Council added
that it has been stated at
NRDA meetings that a cap
on the cost of projects is de-
sired and that proposals for
projects that can be imple-
mented quickly are being
sought at this time. Page
added that, due to docu-
mented impacts of the oil
spill in Walton County, sh6
believes that the county will
get its fair share of the fund-
ing.
Kisela said it was his
understanding .that there
would be an attempt to uti-
lize Florida's share of the
advance funding in 60 to 90
days. "To get it tied up, any-
way," McKee responded.
"This is not a gift," Michael
Sturdivant of the Surfrider
Foundation emphasized. He
warned against "frivolous"
proposals, instead encourag-
ing that projects be proposed
that would "reduce environ-


mental impact," such as cut-
ting the consumption of en-
ergy. Such measures would
reduce the chance of choices
that led to the oil spill, Stur-
divant told the commission-
ers.
Sturdivant said his orga-
nization would also oppose
large-scale beach restora-
tion projects because "rules
have changed" and'as much
as 5-percent mud and silt
could be pumped onto the
beach in such projects. He
added that they would op-
pose th'6 construction of sea-'
walls with the funding---or
any other project that would
"work against preserva-
tion."
Local attorney Clay Ad-
kinson, who is part of a le-
gal team representing Wal-
ton County with BP claims,
noted that additional fund-
ing for projects will be avail-
able later from BP and that
the commissioners' selection
of projects will not preclude
other Walton County pro-
posals from being funded.
The commissioners selec-

to remedy repeat violations.
During the course of the
workshop various opinions
were expressed on how it
would be determined which
cases would go before the
CEB and which before the
special magistrate and
whether alleged violators
should be able to chose be-
tween the options for the
hearing of their "cases.
Asked how many CEB
cases had been appealed,
Hoshihara said she did not.
have an exact number but
knew that two cases had
been appealed within the
past few months. Ques-
tioned about CEB decisions
that had been overturned
in court, she said she was
not aware of any, of those
decisions having been over-
turned and that none had
been overturned since she
had been working with the
county legal department..
"I think that speaks to the
quality...despite the rumor
mill," District 3 Commis-
sioner Larry Jones respond-
ed. Jones went on record as
"not in favor of disbanding
the code enforcement board
to move this forward." He
said that his position had
been that, if the county were
moving"in the direction of a
special magistrate, then it
should be in the direction
of a hybrid system in which
the alleged violator would
have the choice whether'
their case would be heard
by the CEB or by the special
magistrate.
Turning to citizen in-
put, the commissioners rec-
ognized David Kramer, a
longtime CEB member, who
had just been transferred
by appointment to another
volunteer board, the Walton
County Planning Commis-
sion.
Kramer told the com-
missioners that he had
been honored to served on
the CEB for 14 consecutive
years. He commented that,
in his experience, people
brought before the CEB
want to comply with the
code, and when they fail
to do so, it is usually due
to a money problem. When
citizens come before -the
CEB, "they are dealing with
their neighbors," Kramer
observed, in contrast with
their case being heard by
"some retired judge who sits
on the throne of God."
However, he was of the
opinion that allowing al-
leged violators to choose
between the CEB and a spe-


cial magistrate as suggested
by Larry Jones would be a
great idea if it could result
in cost savings to the. coun-
ty. .
Kramer concluded with
thanks to the commission-
ers for having him on the
CEB.
Representing the Scenic
Gulf Drive initiative, Bob
Sullivan said he had recent-
ly been involved with code,
enforcement cases. He saw
the crux of' the problem as
the fact that people found
in vib atid6n wdre not being
compelled to pay the fines set
by the CEB. Sullivan said it
was his understanding that
more than $500,000 in un-
paid fines were in existence,
which by law could no lon-
'ger be collected if the county.
had not done so within 20
years. He encouraged the
BOC to take the violators to
court and collect the fines so
that' others wiild know that
they would be punished for
failure to comply with the
code.
Charlotte Flynt, a cur-
rently-serving CEB mem-
ber, told the commissioners
that, if they think there are
code enforcement problems
in Walton County, they
should just look at other
counties. She said that while
in training as a CEB mem-
ber at a seminar in Orlando,
she learned that some other
counties charge citizens
with violations for letting
the grass in their yard get
longer than a certain length'
and for leaving their trash
cans at the curb for too long.
"I hope this county does not.
go to that," she said.
Flynt said other counties
have .had to go to special
magistrates to hear code
cases because they can find
no one willing to serve on a
code enforcement board. She
added that, to her knowl-
edge, Walton County's CEB
has prevailed in court in ev-
ery instance in which a CEB
decision has been appealed.
While obtaining compli-
ance is the board's goal, she
observed, some people are
"hell bent on having it their
way," sometimes because
of bad financial moves that
they have made.
Mary Nielson framed the
commissioners' decision as
"about what does our code
enforcement board repre-
sent." She said this should
be "enforcing the code as
written."
While observing that the
CEB strives to do a good job,


Patrick McCarthy spoke in
favor of replacing the board
with a special magistrate. -
- He was of the opinion that
a hybrid .system would in-
crease, not reduce costs, and
that going to a special mag-
istrate would cost less than
the current' system and-im-
prove, efficiency. He thought
the use, of a special magis-
trate would result in better
record keeping and a reduc-
tion in appeals of decisions
in court. '.
Recently-retired business
owner Margie 'Jordan was
also in favor of a move to
the special magistrate. She
was of the opinion that, due
to his understanding of the
code,, the special magistrate
would be able to "give us im-
mediate answers" and that
inconsistencies in' the inter-
pretation of theI code would
be reduced, so that code is-
sues were "not dragged out
for months."
Jordan said she had been
"offended" by some CEB
members. "I want all the
negative stuff to stop," she
told the commissioners.
With public comments
completed, Comander ob-
served that a number of is-
sues had been raised. The
called for ongoing efforts to
"clean up" the land develop-
ment code to continue. She
spoke in favor of raising the
maximum fines that the
CEB can impose---and for
collecting outstanding fines.'
A public hearing process
will be necessary for the
level of fines to be increased.
Comander said she still be-
lieved that citizens would
get a better and "more hon-
est chance" with the CEB
than with "a single individ-
ual."
Cecilia Jones said she
would like to have staff
compare costs for the special
magistrate system with the
hybrid system. She suggest-
ed continuing discussion of
those possibilities. While
emphasizing that the CEB
has done "a wonderful job,"
she commented, "sometimes
we have to look beyond."
Kisela asked for time to
further research the hybrid
system and to prepare a re-
port on outstanding code en-
forcement fines.

The workshop was con-
tinued to Sept. 7 in advance
of. the regular BCC meet-
ing on that date. It was set
to begin at 3 p.m. and take
place at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.

Some people know what
they are going to be from the
time that are little. Redd
Vizard is one of those peo-
ple blessed by knowing her
passion from an early age.
"I have been singing since
I was a little girl. I started
with the hairbrush as a
microphone in the mirror,
singing to Donny and Ma-
rie. Funny how stuff works
out since I sing a little bit
country and little bit of rock
and roll, and a little of ev-
erything in between."
Vizard got her practice
in every chance she had
once the singing bug bit. "I
joined every choir possible,
church, elementary, junior
high, high school. My first
'show' was a talent show in
fourth grade in which I sang
along to Cher's 'Half Breed.'
I was always an alto and al-
ways belted everything out.
I did musical theater is high
school, in Tucson, Ariz., and
some Gilbert and Sullivan


Community theater." A s
she grew older she found
she just couldn't shake the
singing urge. "I sang on and
off through the years and
was always asking bands at
bars if I could join in. It was
finally my then soon-to-be
husband after a few years
saying, to me 'you must
sing!"'
Vizard soon found it
took getting herself way
down south in Florida, in
the Keys, to finally find her
niche. in the performing
world."I worked in Key West
as a professional bartender
and also sang at some of the
clubs around town. I hosted
a karaoke show and then
started doing the singing
bartender thing at a place
called Aqua." Vizard said
she got the idea after seeing
a duo preforming a dueling
bartender show, but, "I did
it by myself. My favorite
music is bluesy jazzy kind
of stuff but I sing really ev-
erything from Etta James to

In May of 2007. Redd and
now husband Paul Vizard of
30A TV made their way to
30A and since then, she has
became one of the star at-
tractions as well as an Inter-
net sensation to many locals
and visitors in the area."I
do miss Key West and have
lots of connections there but
have found a very special
niche here. The people are
amazing and the lifestyle is
Florida 'laid back.' There is
so much great art and music
here and I feel like I bring
something special to the ta-
ble."
To the table is right,
Vizard performs at "Sally's
Backside, on Tuesdays and
Thursday from 7-9 [p.r.]
or a little later. It is a fun,
casual atmosphere with
the best ribs and meatloaf

Saturday, Aug. 27 that will
be a Fabulous '50's party!
I'll be giving prizes for cos-
tumes and maybe some jit-,
terbugging from 7-9 p.m."
Vizard and friends just en-
joyed an '80's party at Sal-
ly's that was "totally awe-
some" according to many of
the diners in attendance.
Many also got to see and
hear Vizard in the spring
production of Honky Tonk
Angels at Seaside Rep. She
enjoyed being back onstage
and working with the other
performers,"I really enjoyed
playing a character named
Angela. Brooke Stettler is
the artistic director and he
asked' me to audition for the
part because they needed a
big voice." Vizard shared the
stage with two other per-
formers, Anne Marie Car-
roll and Anna Garrett. "They
were great to work with and
the show was a great suc-
cess. I enjoyed working in
the. theater again and fell
right into the routine of re-
hearsals and shows. I hope
to do more."

Ten years have passed
since that horrific day in
September. More than 35
talented and devoted sing-
ers and instrumentalists
from various local church
congregations will come to-
gether to remember that
day and honor those who
have served or are serving
our country.
There will be two presen-

Ten years ago we wit-


nessed the unthinkable -
the unfathomable. Today we
remember and honor those
who lost their lives To the
innocents and to the ones
who stood in harm's way to
save others...we remember.
We must never forget the
sacrifices made, the prom-

We must never lose the
beauty and the harmony of
the sacred song of freedom.
We, the people, are the
keepers of the flame, en-
trusted with the holy light
of freedom. That light shines
on the greatness of America,
but also illuminates that
which must be addressed
and changed. There is much


to celebrate--there is much
to overcome. Freedom is the
foundation of our national
heritage but freedom can
only survive if it is anchored
in Truth His Truth.
All are encouraged to
bring in-date canned goods
for those in need in the
community. The Choir is a
community outreach orga-
nization based at Christ the
King and all free will offer-
ings received go to worthy
local causes like Caring and
Sharing, Lighthouse Family
Retreat, and Children's Ad-
vocacy Center, just to name
a few. For more informa-
tion, call Adele Armitage at
(850) 267-3332.


hone app so folks can keep
track of where I am all the
time. Go to the app store and
search 'redd sings.' It will
pop right up. I keep the cal-
endar updated so everyone
will know if there are special
shows. There is a little bio
info and some free tracks.
If you don't have an Iphone,

my CD, 'Redd... Discovered
at Last' at Sally's. You can
also get it at my website
which is reddsings.com, or

Is there anything the
signing bartender can't do?
'Tm available for private
parties, special occasions,
New Year's Eve and Derby
Day parties. I've also helped
celebrate lots of birthdays
and anniversaries."
One thing is for certain,
Vizard likes to have fun
and when she sings, she
transfers a lot of that fun to
her audience. To see some
of this fun first-hand, visit
her at Sally's or check out
her Facebook page Helen
Redd or shoot her an email
at redd@reddsings.com or
check out reddsings.com to
make a request of the sign-
ing bartender, herself.


VIZARD ENJOYED HER turn onstage at Seaside Rep
