The 2011 DeFuniak Herald Beach Breeze Christmas Family:


Nikki and David Swedberg


Story by BRUCE COLLIER,
photos from
Nikki Swedberg

When Nikki and David
Swedberg were notified
that they had been nomi-
nated and selected as the
DeFuniak Herald Beach
Breeze 2011 Christmas
Family, they asked if they
could be interviewed, not
at home, but at the Walton
County Animal Shelter on
Triple G Road, north of De-
Funiak Springs. The reason
for this was quickly evident.
Both Nikki and David spend
so much of their time at the
shelter, and the work they
do in animal rescue is such a
passion with them, that the
shelter is. almost a second
home, as well as office and
staging area for their efforts
to find safe and permanent
homes for dogs, cats, and
even pigs.
Nikki and David met with
the Herald Breeze on a. re-
cent weeknight, in the com-
pany of Casper, a friendly
Boxer with a Christmas-
jingle bell collar, who sat
in for part of the interview.
Casper is one of 11 dogs that
live with the Swedbergs
(five are foster dogs, six are
permanent members of the
family), along with two cats
and eight pot-bellied pigs on
20 acres the Swedbergs own
in Mossy Head. The Swed-
bergs have been married for
three years.. David, a native
of Samson, Ala., is employed
at Lowe's in Crestview. Nik-
ki, originally from Niceville,
is a vet tech and animal res-
cue coordinator. Both put


in uncountable hours at the
shelter, particularly Nikki,
whom David calls "the un-
stoppable force meeting the
immovable object."
The object the Swedbergs
are moving against is the
problem of what to do with
the hundreds of unwanted,
lost or abandoned cats, dogs
and other animals in this
area. David calls it a "con-
tinuous battle," while Nikki
prefers "continuous oppor-
tunity." Coming into work
at 6 a.m., Nikki is at the
shelter until around 12:30
or 2 p.m. She continues at
home on rescue work, put-
ting in an average of 80-plus
hours a week, "at the very
least." David leaves a 40-
hour a week job at Lowe's to
come to the shelter. He often
finds himself dispatched to
transport rescued animals
to their new homes and
families, or assisting others
to do the same, moving dogs
to Texas and pot-bellied pigs
to New Hampshire, among
other places.
Nikki has been working
in animal rescue since 1998,
when a neighbor in Crest-
view got her into what has
become a life mission. David
has always had a dog in his
life, but credits Nikki with
introducing him to rescue
work. They are not alone. ,
At the time of this inter-
view, the Walton County
Animal Shelter housed 110
dogs and around 54 cats.
Holiday times see many
people given puppies or kit-
tens as gifts, and somewill
inevitably decide afterward
*that they can't take care of


the animal, or the animal
will run away, and eventu-
ally end up at the shelter.
Owner reclaim rate is re-
portedly low, between 2 and
5 percent, leaving the res-
cue services to try to connect
animals with responsible
owners. The shelter holds
animals for 10 days, all the
while networking with res-
cues in Florida, the rest of
the U.S. and Canada.
A recent rescue that
moved a dog to Texas took
the efforts of 15 20 people
to get him there safely. "It
takes a village," says Nikki.
Rescue groups specialize in
breeds as well as general
rescues, and Facebook has
been a great boost to aware-
ness and support. Nikki's
rescue efforts have so far
attracted some 1,800 Face-
book friends. "Education is
crucial," both agree.
The work is steady and
sometimes frustrating, but
the Swedbergs get motiva-
tion from any success. "If you
can save one it's worth every
second," they say. Last year
they personally conveyed
15 dogs to the area around
Disney World. This past
Thanksgiving they assisted
a University of Central Flor-
ida student in safely trans-
porting 27 rescued puppies
to the St. Petersburg area
- in a Mustang.
In their rare time off, the
Swedbergs enjoy watch-
ing football, spending time
with family, fishing, and
exploring around the Choc-
tawhatchee River. "It's very
relaxing," says David.

Commissioners to continue looking at attorney options


By DOTTYNIST
There has been no conclu-
sion by the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) on whether to
hire a new in-house county
attorney, enlist a firm for
that purpose or to do a com-
bination of the two. Howev-
er, the commissioners have
some time to evaluate what
to do. This is due to current
County Attorney Lynn Ho-
shihara expressing willing-
ness to continue to serve the
county on a part-time basis
through March as she be-
gins a new position with a
firm in Tallahassee.
Hoshihara had recently
announced her resignation
effective Dec. 30, and the
BCC had begun advertising
for new legal representation
On Dec. 9.
The commissioners held
a Dec. 13 special meeting
on the topic of the Office of
the County Attorney at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.
The advantages and dis-
advantages of legal repre-
sentation by an in-house
attorney versus a law firm-
were discussed. The county
has had experience with


both situations in recent
years. District 4 Commis-
sioner Sara Comander was
concerned that fees could
"get out of hand" with rep-
resentation by a law firm.
She suggested hiring an in-
house county attorney with
management experience
who could handle some cas-
es and assign other cases to
contract attorneys or special
counsel. She further sug-
gested hiring an in-house
staff attorney to handle
"day-to-day small items." "A
lot of the public likes to see
a body," Comander noted.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones said her first
priority would be to have a
county staff attorney who
would be "on duty 24-7." She
added that she had liked the
previous situation with a
county staff attorney in the
Office of the County Attor-
ney and an attorney from a
legal firm at the top---with
set salaries and a guarantee
from the legal firm attor-
ney that they would handle
most of the cases and that
few cases would be "farmed
out."
Hoshihara revealed that
Walton Couty is currently


involved in 30 active legal
cases, with half of those be-
ing handled either by repre-
sentation from the county's
insurance companies or by
the Florida League of Cities.
Ten cases are being handled
by local attorneys and five
by Nabors Giblin & Nick-
erson in Tallahassee, she
noted.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones suggested wait-
ing to see what kind of re-
sponses the county gets to
its advertising before decid-
ing whether to go with an in-
house attorney, a legal firm,
or a mixture of the two.
County Administrator
Greg Kisela agreed that con-
trol of fees is important but
commented on the difficulty
of getting a cost estimate
from law firms on a case un-
til the firms know what the
extent of the litigation will
be.
The commissioners gave
direction to staff to continue
with advertisements for le-
gal representation.. Kisela
thought a realistic timetable
was to plan on having some-
one in place for this purpose
between Feb. 15 and March
1.

He indicated that at the
Jan. 19 BCC meeting he
would present the commis-
sioners with a process for
evaluation both of individu-
als and of legal firms who
had responded to the adver-
tising.
Turning to the issue of
interim legal representa-
tion, Kisela suggested that
attorneys and firms being
considered to represent the
county on a permanent ba-
sis should not also be enlist-
ed for representation on a
temporary or interim basis.
.In this way, everyone com-
peting for the job would be
doing so an equal basis, he
explained.
Cecilia Jones asked what
options were available to
the county for interim legal
representation.
Kisela responded that
Hoshihara had indicated
willingness to serve an ad-.
ditional 60 days, through
March 1, on a part-time ba-
sis, in order to provide the
BCC with time to line up
new legal representation.
Hoshihara commented
that her new employer had
also agreed to the offer. She

suggested spending several
days a week with Walton
County during the transi-
tion. Part of the offer was
the understanding that her
salary would be at the same
level but prorated according
to the number of days per
week spent with the Office
of the County Attorney. Ho-
shihara said that the advan-
tage of the plan would be
that the county would have
just one and not two transi-
tions for legal representa-
tion.
"It's a smooth way of han-
dling it," agreed Comander.
She motioned for approval,
and the motion carried with
all aye votes from the four
commissioners present.
Bob Hudson of the Wal-
ton County Taxpayers As-
sociation commented that
good legal representation is
important "in this day and
age of litigation." He con-
tinued with the observation
that legal expenses shown in


the Walton County budget
are a relatively small part
of the county's spending on
legal work. He gave the ex-
ample of charges to Walton
County by the county's prior
legal representation, Burke
& Blue, for the reading of
the same e-mail by several
of the firm's attorneys. The
cost of getting an e-mail
opened can run into a cou-
ple hundred dollars, he told
the commissioners. Hudson
said he hoped that details of
this kind were being exam-
ined as the commissioners
evaluated what to about le-
gal representation.
Kisela responded that
five years of records were
available and could be pro-
vided to commissioners in
their evaluation of the type
of legal representation to go
with. He said an analysis of
true costs could be provided,
allowing for a comparison
between the options being
considered.

Merry



Christmas,



Grace

By BRUCE COLLIER



My daughter Grace Christiana will be 11 months old on
Christmas Eve. Though Dec. 25 is officially Christmas Day,
when I was growing up in Ohio we. did a lot of celebrating
on the night before. We opened gifts (to each other, Santa
still brought his in the night), had a buffet of favorite foods,
and listened to Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, Elvis and
The Nutcracker. All on LPs. We were a simple people.
My father once said that Christmas Eve was his favor-
ite night of the year. The comment didn't register much
with me at the time, because my dad was generally a pretty
happy guy year 'round. I see now what he meant. In 1981,
I moved away from Ohio, first to New York, then to New
Orleans, and eventually to Florida. Christmas was one of
the few times of the year I got to see my father, mother,
sister and brother-in-law,.and nephew. I was probably too
busy doing whatever it was I was doing in those years for it
to sink in. It has since sunk in. He -and they-- missed me.
My daughter pays surprisingly little attention to our
Christmas- tree, confining her activities to pulling off low-
hahging ornaments (the child-proof ones) and batting them
around like little soccer balls. Her interest may grow when
we put some gifts under it. Especially the ones with noisy,
crackling paper on them.
One of the people who works here at the newspaper told
me, just days before Grace was born, that you never know
how much you can love until you have a child. This is a pro,-
found truth, and a blessing, but something else comes with


I did not know until this past year how much care and
anxiety comes with fatherhood. My. duty is to feed, clothe,
house, medicate, educate, preserve, protect and defend
Grace, to bear true faith and allegiance to her, and, to the
best of my ability, give her a Merry Christmas.
Being a first-time parent means I am prey to the temp-
tation to make everything perfect for my daughter. That's
what I thought I could do until I realized that perfection
is beyond my power, and its pursuit would only make me
frustrated, my daughter miserable and the rest of the world
angrily amused, if such an emotion is possible.
SBut, I am not without power. When she is hungry, I can
feed her. When she is cold, I can wrap her up. When she is
wet or dirty, I can clean her. When she cries, I can perform
Daddy Triage and comfort her. When she craves entertain-
ment, -I can do Michael Caine and Sean Connery impres-
sions for her, or turn on jazz or blues and watch her shake
her little shoulders she can't resist.
For Christmas, I will shower her with gifts and watch
herchew on the boxes they come in. I will persuade her
that the teething biscuits she is eating are Christmas cook-
ies. I will help her mother bathe her, and.we will put her
in her pajamas on the couch between us to watch Mister
Magoo 's .Christmas Carol.
I will try not to think too much of the fact that my par-
ents did not live to see their granddaughter. Instead, I will
remember how happy they made childhood for me, and.
what a wonderful Christmas they always gave me and my
sister. Now I can do the same for Grace. That is a power I
do' have. It is my parents' last and best gift to me.

few years that seem to never end. Sometimes I feel that
the Lord has given me a platter instead a plate. Things

My husband and I were riding around doing our last
minute Christmas shopping when a Christmas lyric "Still
believing in Christmas" came on our XM Christmas station.
I thought "wo:w" does that ever bring back memories of all
my past Christmases and I'm sure of lot of other people can
relate to it. The lyrics tells of all the many'great memories of
Christmases in his life when he would go with his daddy to
pick out just the right Christmas tree for the whole family
to decorate. I could relate to when he had once even played
the part of a shepherd in a Christmas play at church, and
how hard it was to go to sleep on Christmas Eve knowing
that Santa was on his way, and when all the relatives gath-
ered at their house for Christmas Day celebration.
The writer compares past Christmases to the way things
have changed a lot down through the-years. The way that
people are now in too big of a hurry and have even started
writing Xmas instead of Christmas, and how some people
want to call Christmas. the "winter break" or the "winter
holiday," and how sad it is because'it seems like a lot of
people are even afraid to say the word "Christmas" any-
more. Those of us who call ourselves Christians will always
celebrate Christmas (as Christ's birthday) every Dec. 25.


We don't have any right and wouldn't dare try to tell
anyone else that they couldn't celebrate the holiday how-
ever they see fit. The last time I checked, this was still the
land of the free. And that means that I'm free to celebrate
Christmas for what it means to me. ...
This is the part that really energized me.when he stat-
ed "You better believe I'm gonna go out this year and buy
Christmas presents, and send all our friends Christmas
cards and sing Christmas carols and eat Christmas cookies
and tell the Christmas story tomy kids and my grandkids
and anybody else that might care to listen. OK call me
'politically incorrect' if you want to. I've been called a lot
worse things in my life."
I personally have truly seen a lot of Christmases come
and go down through the years, and along with the writer
of this lyric I hope we can continue not only to look forward
to Christmas this year, but also to the next one and thd
next one. It is my pleasure to say "Merry Christmas" to all
who believe as I do in Christmas.
SMerry Christmas

Editor;
Recently George Ralph Miller appeared before the Board
of County Commissioners to piofess his innocence in the
Chat Holley debacle and called his termination as Special
Counsel to the BCC a "knee jerk reaction" and 'said he has
been left with a "professional black eye." Well Mr. Miller,
if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be
a duck. Mr. Miller goes on to say he is a "close personal
friend" to Lloyd Blue but insisted he had not done business
with Mr. Blue. since 1990..As a professional attorney, if Mr.
Miller had really wanted to avoid the appearance of impro-
priety he would and should have recused himself because
of his close personal friendship with Lloyd Blue. Full disclo-
sure of the beneficiaries of the purchase (Blue and his wife
Pleas) were not revealed to the county prior to the sale and
disclosure would assuredly have avoided the appearance of
impropriety.
George Ralph Miller was also the County Attorney from
1969 to 2001. If memory serves me correctly there were any
number of land deals brought before the BCC during those
years that involved property owned by Lloyd Blue arid/or
his associates during Mr. Miller's tenure as the County At-
torney and this isn't the first time that the appearance of
impropriety has reared it's ugly head in regard to land pur-
chases that directly benefited Mr. Miller's close personal
friend. Those were,also situations were because of the per-
sonal relationship between Miller and Blue that the County
Attorney should have recused himself and didn't. Mr. Miller
was also paid a $10,000 -a-mpnth retainer to REMEMBER
who told him to proceed.
I'm not sure (if anything) what a wedding and event ven-


ue owned by Lloyd Blue has to do with the Chat Holley
purchase but I am more than just a tad, awed by the fact
that the venue is almost on top of Chat Holley Road. The
BCC's intent to purchase, this property ostensibly was to
create a turn lane, a turn lane that would benefit a private
business? Surely not. But stranger things have happened
in Walton County that have benefited only a few and lined
many an Attorney and the "good ole boys" pockets.
I have been to many a County Commission meeting in
the past were policies and procedures or lack thereof have
resulted in egg on the faces of the County Commission and
the County Commission has had ample opportunity and
time to rectify those problems. If the County Commission
doesn't learn from the mistakes of their past history tells
us you are doomed to repeat them. The Citizens of Walton
County have long asked that the BCC operate in the Sun-
shine and avoid costly taxpayer mistakes. Isn't it time that
you do so?
One more thing, Lynn Hoshihara was hired as the Coun-
ty Attorney at an annual salary of $95,000. George Ralph
Miller was on a $10,000 -a-month retainer to serve as a
special counsel. Surely the County Commission can find
ONE attorney for that amount of money who has the best
interest of the taxpayers at heart and will work to promote
transparent government to prevent this from ever happen-
ing again. At the very least, you owe that to the taxpayers
Commissioners.

What really makes me angry is all of these politicians,
both Democrat and Republican, claiming they are doing
what their constituents want. If they are doing what their
constituents want why is Congress' approval rating 9 per-
cent? It's because most of them really can careless about
their constituents. They are actually pandering to their
campaign contributors because they know that in 94 per-
cent of elections, the candidate with the most money wins.
So all the politicians really have to do is pretend they care


about their constituents and in reality vote or back what's
best for their campaign contributors to make sure the
money keeps coming. The unlimited campaign money from
unknown sources, being funneled into the pockets of our
elected officials needs to stop in order for us to once again
truly have a government for the people by the people!

Canine Unit seizes approximately 30 pounds of marijuana


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) arrested
John Lugo, 49, and Magda


Lugo, 41, both of Katy,
Texas, on drug trafficking
charges.


The investigation began
Dec. 17 after Deputy Steve
Key and Ella, a certified


narcotics detection canine,
conducted a traffic stop near
mile marker 84 on Interstate
10 on a vehicle that was fol-
lowing too close to another
vehicle.
A probable cause search
of the vehicle was conducted
after Ella alerted the deputy
of the possible presence of
illegal narcotics in the vehi-
cle. During the search, Key
recovered what appeared to
be approximately 30 pounds
of marijuana .valued at ap-
proximately $200,000 from
a false compartment located


in the bed of the vehicle. Key
also recovered hydrocodone,
diazepam and alprazolam
from a pill bottle bearing
John Lugo's name. He could
not provide a valid prescrip-
tion for these controlled sub-
stances.
Magda and John Lugo
were were each charged
with one count of drug traf-
ficking, a first-degree felo-
ny; and possession of drug
paraphernalia to transport
drugs, a third-degree felony.
John Lugo was additionally
charged with three counts


of possession of a controlled
substance without a pre-
scription, a third-degree fel-
ony. They were booked into
the Walton County Jail.
The WCSO Canine Unit
consists of four teams who
assist in the apprehension
of suspects and the seizure
of narcotics. In 2010, the
.unit apprehended seven
suspects and seized more
than eight pounds of mari-
juana, 45 pounds of cocaine,
two ounces of methamphet-
amine and $40,000 in cash.


SOME 30 POUNDS OF MARIJUANA were seized following a traffic stop that led to a
Texas couple being booked on drug trafficking charges. The marijuana was concealed in a
false compartment on the bed of a vehicle.

resident involved in

Okaloosa County collision


A DeFuniak Springs mo-
torist was uninjured in a
rear-end collision that took
place Dec. 18 in Okaloosa
County. A Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) report states
that the accident took place
on U.S. 98 at Legendary
Drive, at 6:05 p.m.
The report states that a
vehicle, its driver and sole
occupant Julie Vanover, 44,
of Abingdon, Va., was trav-
eling east on U.S.. 98 in the
inside through lane. The sec-
ond vehicle, its driver and
sole occupant Timothy Maid-


en, 37, of DeFuniak Springs,
was proceeding east, also
in the inside through lane
behind Vanover. Both ap-
proached the intersection
with Legendary Drive, and
Vanover stopped to make
a left turn onto Legendary.
Maiden was not able to stop
in time, and struck the rear
of Vanover's vehicle.
Vanover was treated for
minor injuries at Sacred
Heart. Maiden was not in-
jured. Alcohol was not a fac-
tor. The accident remains
under investigation.


FREEPORT UNITED METHODIST CHURCH members Jo Yancey (1) and Lynn Schaffer work to collect their previous
Pastor, Charles Satterwhite, a mess of turnip greens. The duo are working in the organization's community garden which
was'the brainchild of current pastor Wesely Syfrett. "You can tell by what is going on inside of someone by what is growing
outside," said Schaffer. The garden is located on Bay Loop Road in Freeport and everyone is invited to pick themselves a
meal. "We want everyone to come out and join us in the/bounty of the Lord," said Yancey.


Friendship House has a daily

program that could improve the

quality of life for dementia patients


How many Alzheimer's
or other dementia patients
could there be in Walton
County? Maybe 25 or 50?
Would one believe more
than 1300? IBased on figures
from the Florida State Elder
Affairs, there are probably
about 1,333 persons in Wal-
ton County who have Al-
zheimer or another form of
dementia. When considered
that this disease affects the'
entire family, probably more
than 3,000 persons are af-
fected.
Where are these families?
The Friendship House has a
daily program that can al-,.
low patients to remain in
their homes much longer,.
and maintain or even im-'
prove the quality of life.
*However, in over two years
of operation the Board, of
Directors and staff have not
been able to reach this popu-

day through Friday froin
6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and rates
are $5 per hour plus $5 for

dence appear occupied.
When traveling, residents
should have a trusted friend

house and have mail and
newspapers picked up.
Valuable items should.be
labeled with an identifying
mark. Items should be docu-
mented with photos or listed
by make, model and serial


number.

aware of people posing as
government requesting ac-
cess to the home. Ask to
see official credentials, and
contact the proper compa-
ny to verify why they are
at your residence. Contact
the sheriffs office if you are
alarmed.
Smoke detectors should
be tested and holiday lights

WCSO arrests


online scam artist


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) last week
arrested Clifford Booty, 50,
of Denham, La., for Internet
fraud.
The WCSO investiga-
tion began Dec. 2009 when
investigators received in-
formation from a Walton
County victim who .wired
$10,000 to the online seller
-of two vintage motorcycles
that were never delivered.
The seller, "Stephen Mitch-
ell," persuaded the victim to
wire the funds to a bank ac-
count in Louisiana admin-
istered by Booty's alleged
do-conspirator, Kristina
Walters. Walters withdrew
$9,500 .the same day.
The investigation re-
vealed that Booty fictitious-
ly created the pseudonym
"Stephen. Mitchell" as the
seller of the merchandise to
mislead the unknowing vic-
tim to wire funds to a legiti-
mate bank account.
Booty was charged with
two counts of criminal con-
spiracy, a first-degree misde-
meanor; two counts of grand
theft, a third-degree felony;


and two counts of advertis-
ing fraud, a first-degree mis-
demeanor. He was booked
into the Walton County Jail.
Walters was arrested April
11 by the WCSO.
The WCSO encourages
citizens to become familiar
with the following safety tips
for avoiding non-delivery of
merchandise and to prevent
scammers from fraudulently
obtaining personal or finan-
cial information:
Obtain a physical address
rather than a post office box
and a telephone number,
and call the seller to see if
the telephone number is cor-
rect and working.
Send an email to the seller
to ensure the e-mail address
is active, and be wary of
those that utilize free e-mail
services where a credit card
Wasn't required to open the
account.
.'Consider not purchasing
from sellers who won't pro-
vide you with this type of
information.
Be cautious when dealing
with individuals/companies
from outside your area.


If possible, purchase
items online using your
credit card,.because you can
Soften dispute the charges if
something goes wrong.

Operation Christmas Child, world's largest Christmas project of its


Volunteers have been
working tirelessly at
DeFuniak Springs-area
collection sites where
hundreds of shoe box-
es packed with school
supplies, toys and ne-
cessity items were
dropped off by caring
DeFuniak Springs resi-
dents. National Collec-
tion Week is wrapping
up for the world's larg-
est Christmas project


of its kind-Operation
Christmas Child-
where participants fill
empty shoe boxes with
items for kids suffering
from natural disaster,
war, terrorism, fam-
ine, and poverty. Soon,
these shoe boxes will be
delivered to 8.5 million
kids worldwide.

For families who
haven't yet packed


their gift of hope, it's
not too late. Many local
families are choosing to
pack shoe box gifts vir-
tually through "Build
a Box," an online giv-
ing tool. It's a simple,
quick, yet meaningful
way to impact a child
in need. Volunteers
can visit the project's
website at www.sa-
maritanspurse.org/occ,
select a child's age and


gender, shop through
an online selection of
gifts, "pack" them in
an empty shoe box,
and finish it off with a.
note of encouragement.
Then through track-
ing technology, donors
can "follow" the box to
the destination country
where it will be hand-
delivered.

Operation Christmas


Child, a project of inter-
national Christian re-
lief and evangelism or-
ganization Samaritan's
Purse, uses simple gift-
filled shoe boxes to let
hurting children know
they are loved and not
forgotten. For many of
these children, the sim-
ple shoe box will be the
first gift they have ever
received.
Since 1993, Opera-


tion Christmas Child
has hand-delivered
more than 86 million
gift-filled shoe boxes to
needy children in more
than 130 countries.

SUNSET KING "REDBIRDS" met at Lilly's Cafe in Mossy Head for their Christmas lunch on Dec. 13.



Sunset King Redbirds Christmas lunch


The Sunset King "Red-
birds" met at Lilly's Cafe in
Mossy Head for their Christ-
mas lunch on Dec. 13. After
eating tasty beefstew and a
salad, the group returned
to the park meeting room.
Their hostess, Lady-Sew-A-
Lot (Sue Coppock) and Lady
Road Runner (Barbara Jor-


.dan) passed out the purple
hostess gifts. Those crafty
women made pretty paper
ornaments of their colors,
red, purple and -white, for
each of them. They drew
numbers for selection of
their red box gifts, while sip-
ping punch and eating cook-
ies.


Lady Shutterbug (Con-
nie Carrico) surprised them
with small holiday redbirds.
Lady Wildflower (Marsha
Marks) was also in a sur-
prise mode, as she passed
out small red bags contain-
ing key rings and a tiny pur-
ple bear that she had made.
Door prizes were worn by


Marsha and Lady Red Dress
(Yvonne Fontenot). As they
adjourned, Queen Fire-
cracker (Anita Smith) gave
each of them a small red
cardinal. Asking them all to
please hang their little red
cardinals in their homes to
remind them that no matter
what the weather, redbirds
flock together.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
Every Christmas my
smartie-pants nephew gives
out these little cards saying
he donated this or that in
my name for charity. Well,
I say HUMBUG! How do we
know that any of the money
he said he was donating is
getting to the people who
need it? Or that the chari-
ties are really real and not
just lining their own pock-
ets?
Sincerely,
Ebenezer
Dear Scroogie,
We've got some really
great ways to tell where
your money is going and
the performance of charities
round the world. One great
site is called Charity Navi-
gator. This handy little web
site rates charities on how
much of their money actual-
ly goes to help people or just
pad their executives' pock-
ets. It promotes account-
ability and transparency of
charitable institutions as
well. It provides advice for
givers like your nephew as
well as charities that are
most in need. You can find
it at www.charitynavigator.
org.
Sounds like you have:
quite the altruist there Mr.
Scrooge. Be proud he wants
to help make the world a
better place, instead of buy-
ing something plastic and


cheaply made' from another
country. And it wouldn't
hurt to remind him that
there are charities here,
very close to home, where
one can invest in their fel-
low man. Local food banks,
toy drives, church charities
and more line the communi-
ty calender and local items
sections of this fine publica-
tion. Scan them and find out
how to keep the happy and
love in Christmas present
and future. Merry Christ-
mas and may God bless us,
every one.
Auntie Em
WHave a problem? Got
a question? Want to vent
about an issue and get some
feedback? She'd love to hear
what's on your mind. Send
an email to Auntie-Em at
dfsherald@gmail.com at-
tention Auntie Em or send
it the oldfashioned way to

The Mattie Kelly Arts
Center Galleries at North-
west Florida State College
(NWFSC) begin the new
year with two exciting ex-
hibitions, opening Jan. 13.
The public is invited to cel-
ebrate the artists, and meet
Duncan Baird and Cetin
Oguz, at an opening recep-
tion on Friday, Jan. 13, from
6 to 7:30 p.m. The galleries
are open Monday through
Friday, from 10 a.m. 4
p.m., and 90 minutes prior
to most evening'l attie Kel-
ly,. Arts Center, Mainstage
and Sprint Theater perfor-
mances.
The Mattie Kelly Arts
Center Galleries are always
free and open to the public.
(The college and its arts gal-
leries are closed until Janu-
ary, 3.)
The McIlroy Gallery will
host to Worlds Apart, a two-
man show featuring the
works of Duncan Baird and
Cetin Oguz.
The artists.have differ-
ent cultural, geographical,
and artistic backgrounds,


but their ideas about art-
making coincide:' both are
sensitive to a world environ-
ment, to the actual process
of making art, and to the
possibilities and limitations
of the materials they use. In
Cassetina, the Magic Box,
Austin offers us an intimate
view of her decorated minia-
tures. Her cassetinas, which


is Italian for "little boxes,"
are framed in hand-crafted
Florentine wood and fea-
ture ethereal paintings in-
side. Her subject matter is
drawn from nature and has
an otherworldly quality to
it. Additionally, works from
her Nocturne series will ap-
pear.
The Front Hall of the


Mattie Kelly Arts Center
Galleries will feature works
by American master and
perennial local favorite,
Emil Holzhauer, from the
NWFSC Permanent Collec-
tion. This second cycle of the
Adopt-a-Painting program
showcases works of art in
need of cleaning or restora-,
tion.

WHEN IT BECOMES

NECESSARY TO CALL THE

FUNERAL HOME AT 2:00 IN

THE MORNING......


Who will answer the phone?


When you call the experienced staff at Jerry Evans it is
alwaysJerry Evans who answers the call, not some unknown
person in Dothan, Alabama or worse, Lexington, Kentucky
who does not know you or your family. Most funeral homes pay
answering services to take their calls in the evening so they
won t be bothered. AtJerry Evans we feel service begins with
the first call, so it is no bother that I answer the phone
personally.


It isJerry who answers the phone
It isJerry who comes to the home,
hospital or nursing home.

Prayer for Peace
Lord, help me to live in Your joy and peace. Give me
strength.and understanding to resist anxiety, anger, envy,
depression, bitterness, hopelessness, loneliness, fear and
guilt. Rescue me when "my spirit is overwhelmed within
me; my heart within me is distressed" (Psalm 143:4). I re-
fuse to let my life be brought down by negative emotions
such as these.
When I am tempted to give in to them, show me Your
Truth. You have said in Your Word that by our patience
we can possess our souls (Luke 21:19) Give me patience so I
can do that. Help me to keep my 'heart with all diligence,"
for I know that "out of it spring the issues of life: (Proverbs
4:23).


'The righteous cry .out, and the Lord hears,
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The LORD is near to those't ho have a bro-
ken heart, and saves such as have a contrite
spirit." (Psalm 34:17-18)

E-A


Was there ever a time
when the holidays were
not busy? Probably not. I
suppose if we went back to
the very first Christmas we
would find a great deal of
hurried busyness: Joseph
was out sitting in the garage
on the donkey, honking the
saddle horn, doing his best
to hurry Mary along just a
bit.
She was inside packing one
more bag for the holiday
trip to visit Joseph's neu-
rotic family in Bethlehem.
Of course she was 'mov-
ing as fast as she could. A
woman better than eight
months pregnant, who was
planning an excursion over
field and fountain, moor
and mountain, was moving
nowhere very quickly.
But there were places to
go, people to see, and his-
tory to be made. So Mary
and Joseph hurried on their
way into thethrongs of peo-
ple who had gathered in the
famed City of David for the
census demanded by the
Roman authorities.
The story is as familiar as
our own children's names.
Upon their arrival there was
no room for.Mary or Joseph
at the local Econolodge. So
they checked the Fairfield.
Strike out.. The Motel Six?
Nope, not there either. The'
young couple was forced
into being squatters at the
local 'KOA campground.
There Jesus was born, igno-
miniously into a Palestinian
backwater. All the while the
counting of people, taxes,
sheep, and profits went on
unhindered. The world was


too busy to note his arrival.
Several Christmas sea-
sons ago I was very busy
at the hospital where I
worked. There was a high
census of patients. There
were extraordinary cases in
the'Intensive Care Unit and
Emergency Department.
The entire staff was at-
tempting to coordinate help
for patients who would not
have a Christmas for their
families.
In our busyness,'we were
on the verge of overlooking
the old "reason for the sea-
son." Then, one of the hos-
pital volunteers, unknown
to her, brought us a much
needed reprieve and put a
smile back on everyone's
face. She came rushing into
the Pastoral Care office with
the panicked words, "Jesus
is missing!"
At first, I thought some-
one had taken a crucifix out
of one of the hospital rooms
when they discharged to
go home. It happens more
times than you might imag-
ine. As a person packs their
bags, sometimes Jesus finds
himself among a patient's
personal belongings. But-no
worries; the hospital keeps
a whole box of Jesuses in a
hidden cabinet to replace
the stolen. ones., Such theft
doesn't bother me. I figure if
a person needs Jesus enough
to steal him off the wall of a
hospital, then by all means,
take him.
But the missing Jesus
this.volunteer spoke of was
the baby Jesus from the Na-,
tivity scene.
Everyone was there:

Mary, Joseph, the magi,
shepherds, sheep, donkeys,
angels all the usual sus-
pects. Except for Jesus. The
manger was empty. Our
volunteer concluded that
he had been stolen from
his crib while sleeping. The
Christmas carol says the
shepherds were watching
and guarding Jesus but
apparently not in the hospi-
tal chapel.
To the volunteer's .relief,
it was quickly clarified that
Jesus was not missing. He
simply hadn't arrived yet.
Baby Jesus was wrapped,
not in swaddling clothes, but
in shrink wrap and stuck in
drawer. He was safe and
sound waiting for Christ-
mas Day before making his
grand entrance. We, along
with. all the Nativity scene
characters, wait for him un-
til then.
In your own heart Jesus
may be locked away, collect-
ing dust in some dark little
corner. You may have grown
so busy that you have not
even thought of him since
last year (or at least since
Easter). If so, I think he's do
an unwrapping, don't you?
Break the packaging.
Knock off the dust. Get him
out of the drawer. Let him
take his place at the center
of this Advent season, and
at the center of your life.
We may be busy, but not so
busy that we forget to "glori-
fy and.praise God for all we
have heard and seen" in this
child born in Bethlehem.

PDL Girls Hit Break at 12-0


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon girls
basketball team played suf-
focating defense last week in
winning back-to-back games
over Graceville and South
Walton to enter the holidays
with a perfect mark at 12-0.
Against Graceville, PDL
held the Tigers to 8-of-45
shooting from the floor to
capture the district contest
by a 47-22 count. Pirates
center Jasmine Flock scored
11 points with junior Ash-
ley Harper contributing 10
points, mostly on shots from
the perimeter. .

The Pirates held a 26-13
lead at the half as the Tigers
struggled with 13 turnovers
in the first 16 minutes of
play while hitting only 4-of-
25 shots from the field.
The home team dominat-
ed defensively while getting
scoring from nine different
players. In contrast, the
Tigers had only six players
draw iron, none with more
than five points as Tiara So-
rey was the only Graceville
.player to hit that mark.
The win pushed the Pi-
rates to 6-0 in the district
and gives the Holmes Coun-
ty squad a comfortable lead
over their district foes head-


ing into the second halfof
the season. Graceville fell
to 7-5 overall and 5-2 in dis-
" trict competition.
The Pirates faced off with
South Walton on Friday
night in the second meeting
of the year between the two
schools after PDL won in
South Walton 50-36 during
the first week of the regular
season in November.
Once again the Pirates
employed tenacious defense
in jumping out to a 24-12
halftime lead as the Sea-
hawks could connect on only
5-of-21 shots from the field
in the opening half of play
while giving away 14 turn-
overs.
Ashley Harper scored
12 points to lead the home
team as the Pirates again
saw nine different players
contribute to the scoring.
South Walton trimmed
the lead slightly in the
third quarter as both teams
struggled with poor shoot-
ing and turnovers during
that period but the Pirates
got back on track in the fi-
nal quarter, hitting 6-of-12
shots from the floor to pull
away for a 46-24 victory to
sweep the season series.
i South Walton, whdse 9-2
record has suffered both


losses at the hands of the
Pirates, got six points from
Mackenzie Watson in what
coach Kevin Craig called a
very sluggish performance.
"Our district is rather weak
this season and some of the
wins we have rolled to in
District 4 have not helped
us to face the caliber of team
that Ponce de Leon has.
They are very physical and
Tim (Alford) has them real-
ly playing well. We hope to
see them again in the post-


season.
Pirates coach Tim Alford
was pleased to hit the break
at 12-0, but cautioned, "We
still have a lot of work to
do. We are a little ahead of
where I thought we would
be with some of the injuries
we have had, but I like the
way we are progressing. A
lot of challenges are ahead
of us, though."

Just because Walton's

Chipley Girls Down Freeport 71-55


By PATRICK CASEY
Freeport freshman Mary
Kate Myrick scored 36
points but it was not enough
as.the Bulldogs fell at home
to the Chipley Tigers 71-55
on Dec. 13.
Freeport(1-9) got a hot
start from Myrick as she
scored 13 of the team's 18


points in the first quarter to
give the host squad an 18-
15 lead after one quarter of
play.
Chipley responded with
balanced scoring from four
different players as center
Aaliyah Coleman put up 10
points in the first half with
guard Rokia Sorey adding

player for the basketball during second half action in the
contest with Chipley last week. The Bulldogs hung with the

10 points of her own. The Ti-
gers shot the ball extremely
well on the night, hitting 16-
of-29 shots in the first half
of play while committing
only five turnovers.
Freeport trailed at in-
termission 37-29 as nine
first half turnovers and cool
shooting in the second quar-
ter allowed the Washington
County squad to take the
lead.

Freeport cut the lead to
47-43 after 24 minutes of
play as the Bulldogs used
the free throw line to stay in
the contest. Myrick hit 7-of-
11 from the charity stripe
during the third quarter
with Shadia Mitry contrib-
uting five of her 12 points
during that span.
Chipley got the tempo of
the game up in the fourth
quarter and Coleman added
eight of her 22 points from
under the basket as the Ti-
gers pulled away for a 71-55
decision. Amanda Paschal
added 15 points with Jas-
mine Belser hitting for 15
along with Sorey.
Myrick and Mitry were
the only two Bulldogs in dou-
ble figures as the home team
finished the night 19-of-42


from the field while drain-
ing 15-of-27 free throws.
Turnovers hurt the Walton
County team as they had
18 on the night compared to
the Tigers 12.
Chipley had a decided
advantage in rebounding as


they got off 19 more shots
than Freeport (61-42).
Team Notes: Chipley
holds a 13-6 lead in the se-
ries dating back to the 1993-
94 season. The Bulldogs are
4-6 at home against the Ti-
gers during that span. Mike


Myrick is in his 13th season
at the school and has a re-
cord of 122-194 in that time.
The Lady Bulldogs will take
part in the Cats Against
Cancer basketball tourna-
ment at Paxton on Dec. 19-
21.

Paxton claims double-header basketball



victories against rival Laurel Hill


By REID TUCKER
Paxton's girls and boys
basketball teams rolled on
their counterparts from
Laurel Hill in a show of the
Bobcats' continued success-
es and the Hoboes' persis-
tent early-season woes.
The Lady Cats (7-2, 5-0)
were up by just four points at
27-23 by halftime on Friday,
Dec. 16,, b'ut they steadily
pulled in the latter periods
to defeat the Lady Hoboes
(5-5, 1-4). It was not a close
affair, as Paxton, led in all
areas by Alyssa Dupree, who
scored 22 points, finished off
their longstanding rivals by
a final score of 73-52. Laurel
Hill's scoring was primar-
ily handled by two players,
as only Maeson Piper arid
La'Quetta Williams got in
double digits, with 17 points
and 14 points, respectively,
to their credits.
Laurel Hill was close be-
hind Paxton through the
half, trailing just 10-4 at.
the end of the first quarter.
Though both jeams took
some time to warm up their
long arm, Laurel Hill took
advantage of its players' size
as Piper put up 11 points in
the first half and the defense
afforded by her team mate
Williams kept Paxton on its
toes. However, Laurel Hill's
greatest shortcoming in the
half was coming up short at
the stripe, as the team went
5-for-15 in free-throws.
All was not well with
Paxton's ranks either, as
they already began to show
signs of foul trouble, and by
the end of the first half three
players, Dupree, Caylee Nel-
son and Maegan Newborn
picked up three fouls apiece.
Paxton coach Steve Wil-


liams said this and a reluc-
tance to go head-to-head in
the paint with Laurel Hill's
bigger players combined for
some slow shooting that al-
lowed the Lady Hoboes to
gain closer and closer on
Paxton's lead.
He heaped praise on some
of his backup players, most
notably Quinn Williams and
Rebecca Ferreira, for makr
ing critical 3-point baskets
while their team mates saw
more bench-time than usu-
al.
"We missed way too many
outside shots, and that gave
[Laurel Hill] a chance to get
in a transition," Williams
said. "That put us out of
our rhythm and we got in
foul trouble. We had people
step up though. I thought
Quinn's basket at the end
of the half was huge, and
Rebecca played well and hit
a couple shots in there that
were really big."
Paxton, led by Dupree,
who scored 13 of her 22
points in the second half,
were keener to attack the
inside more, which widened
the gulf between the home
team and the Lady Hoboes.
Laurel Hill got to within a
basket of Paxton at 29-27
but Newborn and Dupree
shone as the Lady Cats con-
verted some critical turn-
overs into breakaway layup
runs to send Paxton on a
10-0 streak. Ferreira got off
one more 3 before the end of
the quarter to put Paxton
up 48-32.
After the Lady Cats'
spree in the third quarter,
Laurel Hill got no nearer
than 11 points away with
3:37 left to play in the game.
However, Dupree used the


remaining time to find her
range, draining 2-pointers
and F-Ts alike, plus a 3, to
make it 71-51 with only 20
seconds remaining. Two
more trips to the charity
stripe from her and 14 sec-
onds later and Paxton took
the 21-point win.
"Alyssa is relentless,"
Coach Williams said of Pax-,
ton's all-rounder. "She goes
to the boards and brings
the ball back and she really
does it all for us: I'm really
proud of her. Her condition-
ing is'outstanding. That re-
ally goes for the whole team.
If we're tired, we try not to
show it."
The game between Lau-
rel Hill and Paxton's boys
(7-1, 4-1) was tighter than
the girls' but the Hoboes (3-
4, 1-4) nevertheless came up
short quarter after quarter.
The Bobcats extended a 32-.
25 lead at the half into an
11-point lead in the third
quarter before winning 65-
50. Chad Zessin was Pax-
ton's top scorer, posting 25
of the team's total, while
Travon Calloway did most
of the heavy lifting for Lau-
rel Hill by scoring 20 points
on the night.
Paxton coach Jeff Brad-
ley was glad to get the win
over Laurel Hill, a perennial
district and personal rival of
Paxton teams immemorial
but he thought the spread
would be greater than the
15 points it ended up being.
"As jacked up and excited
as we were going into this
game, to come in as moti-
vated as we were, I was hop-


ing for something like 25
or 30 points," Bradley said.
"We're not 25 or 30 points
better than they are, but
both teams will play better
than they normally do in a
rivalry situation. With the
emotions so high, we missed
some shots we could have
made."

-Paxton was ahead 10-6
at the end of a defensive
first quarter but the action
heatdd up in the second. as
the Bobcats, spurred on by
Zessin, Austin Carnley, Ma-
son McCormick and Marcus
Bradley, scored 22 points
as a team. Laurel Hill was
close behind, scoring 19
points in the period, just six
points down from Paxton at
halftime. Calloway stepped
out early on as the Hoboes'
best shooter, knocking back
three 3s though he averaged
.500 from the stripe on the
night.
Laurel Hill trailed by
about 10 points for the dura-
tion of the third quarter as
even Galloway failed to find
much traction. Paxton, on
the other hand, had Dustin
Geoghagan (12 points on the
night, all by way of 3s) break
loose on back-to-back shots
from the perimeter and the
rest of the team added some
baskets here and there to
give the Bobcats 45-36,iead
by the end of the period.
Zessin had a field day
in the final quarter, scor-
ing 12 of his 25 points via
a mixture of field goals and
free throws, improving his
tally to 7-for-10 from the


stripe on the night. Laurel
Hill climbed back to a six-
point difference at 49-43
with 4:12 to go in the game,
but another 3-pointer from
Geoghagan and continued
breakaway layups from Zes-
sin soon had the Bobcats
up 60-48 on the way to the
eventual 15-point win.
Bradley. was satisfied
with the win, especially con-
sidering the circumstances.
Not only wasthere the pres-
sure of playing a tough ri-
val, but several of Paxton's


players soldiered through
the game despite injuries.
Geoghagan and Ryan Gil-
bert both had injured hip
bones, while Marcis Brad-
ley had a banged-up elbow
and Zessin had his mobil-
ity hindered by a twisted
ankle.
"This was the first time
that our group has played
in this big emotional set-
ting this season, so I'll take
it," Bradley said with a wry
smile. "It was better than
getting beat anyway."

Carolina jumped to a 38-8
halftime lead by turning
four Marshall turnovers
into touchdowns. The tables
turned in the third quarter,
however, as the Thunder-

of three Pirates turnovers
to pull within 41-36 after

By DOTTY NIST
Construction could start
as soon as 2013 on a new
span that would add two
lanes to the U.S. 331 bay
bridge. However, the project
depends on a difficult finan-
cial commitment by Walton
County.
For over a decade, the
widening' of the two-lane
bridge, along with the four
laning ofU.S. 331 from south
Walton to the Alabama line,
has been diligently pursued
by county officials. This
major route is the county's
only north-south evacuation
route for the area south of
the bay. The need to widen
the bridge as part of the
four laning of the highway
has represented a major im-
pediment to the total project
due to projected cost. A few
years ago the estimate to
expand the bridge stood at.
over $300 million.
The plan presented by.


state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) officials to
county commissioners on
Dec. 15 was for the addition
of a parallel second span east
of the current bay bridge,
with the existing bridge to
carry northbound traffic
and the new structure to be
used for southbound traffic.
$i77 million is the current
estimate for construction of
the bridge expansion.
This information was pro-
vided at a special meeting of
the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.
DOT District 3 Secretary
Tommy Barfield told the
BCC that federal transpor-
tation dollars had been se-
cured that could be used to
fund the majority of the proj-
ect cost, with a local match
of $75 million to be required
on the part of the county to
fully fund the project.


"The time is right to move
forward," Barfield said. DOT
Secretary Ananth Prasad
told the commissioners that
currently construction bids
for projects are coming in
much lower, at 2004 prices
or in some cases at those of
2003 or 2002.
Barfield said DOT was
proposing to raise the $75
million local match by sell-
ing bonds and then placing
a $2 toll on the new bridge
span to payoff the bonds.
He said the toll would be
confined to the new south-
bound structure, with no
toll increase over time and
with the toll to be eliminat-
ed once the $75 million debt
was retired. He estimated
that this would take approx-
imately 30 years.
Barfield said plans were
for the bridge project to be
bid out on a design/build
basis and that the structure
would be required to span

nounced by the state Department of Transportation reach fruition.

from shore to shore without
causeways.
He added that the state
expects to contract the four
laning of the section of U.S.
331 between the bridge and
SR-20 in 2012. a $26 million
project.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones thanked the
officials for their help with
the U.S. 331 project but
added, "A toll really fright-
ens me." She asked if: he
county would be able to look
at other options for the local
matching funds.
"Absolutely," Barfield re-
sponded.
Prasad assured the of-
ficials of his and Barfield's
commitment to getting U.S.
331 widened all the way
north to 1-10. Their goal is
to make this happen within
the next three-to four years,
.he explained. To do so, he
commented, will be "truly a
game changer" and an en-.
ticement to people looking
for an area in which to do
business 6r invest.
Prasad discussed the in-
creasing difficulty of getting
funding for transportation


projects through the federal
Highway Bill, which relies
on the gas tax as a source
of revenue. Those revenues
are down, Prasad explained.
because Americans have
been driving less and more
of them have been opting for
more fuel-efficient vehicles.
Congress has been conflict-
ed about raising the gas tax
to fund more projects, and
therefore an extension of the
bill that had beeni expected
to be approved in 2010 has
yet to be passed.
"We're trying to squeeze
more juice out of that or-
ange every day," Prasad
said in reference to the lim-
ited federal transportation
funds. He added that this is
the reason DOT is looking
to diversifying its sources of
revenue as with the use of
tolls.
Prasad said that both
the U.S. House and Senate
versions of the Highway
Bill extension, as proposed,
w6uld cut funding for trans-
portation projects by up-
wards of 20 percent. A key

George Ralph Miller, several



citizens air grievances with BCC


By DOTTY NIST
All public comments ad-
dressed to the Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) on Dec. 13
were unhappy ones.
This was at the BCC's
regular meeting on that
date at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.
First to speak during the
public comment period was
Mike Judkins. Mike and
Shari Judkins had bought
property in Chapparral Es-
tates on Holiday Road 25
years ago. Mike Judkins
complained that, soon after
that, the county had begun
allowing "big buildings and
businesses" in their residen-
tial neighborhood.
"This county has allowed
an industrial park to be
built around us," Judkns
charged. He also alleged
that spot zoning had taken
place in the neighborhood.
Judkins complained of noise
from large trucks loading an


unloading from about 12:30
at night to 3:30 in the morn-
ing.
He alleged, as well, that
Shari's lots on Holiday Road
were being flooded by the
county as a result of a re-
paving/drainage project on
-the roadway. The commis-
sioners were advised not to
speak about this issue due
to a lawsuit filed against
the county by Shari Judkins
over the matter.
Shari Judkins spoke
later in the meeting, ex-
pressing extreme concern
about a business that had
recently located in her neig-
horhood. With the business
came more semi trucks, she
commented, putting "lives
at risk." She is taking the
matter before the Walton
County Zoning Board of Ad-
justments, but Judkins said
the business has not filed
the Certificate of Land Use
Compliance that the county
requires of all businesses.


She questioned whether,
therefore, it will be possible
to ascertain whether the
business is allowable with-
in the land use category or
not.
Local attorney/former
county attorney George
Ralph, Miller was next to
speak. Miller maintained
that he had "not been done
correctly" when his work
agreement with the county
was terminated without any
input being sought from him
about the problem.
This occurred in Sep-
tember 2011 amid concerns
by Walton County that a
portion of some land pur-
chased by the county about
a year earlier had already
been under the ownership of
the county, as a 1917 deed
seemed to indicate. The por-
tion of the property in ques-
tion was 33 by 1.320 feet
within the half-acre parcel.
The purchase transaction
for the parcel, located at the


southwest intersection of
Chat Holley Road, had been
overseen by Miller as spe-
cial legal counsel.
The county had directed
an independent investiga-
tion of the transaction, a
report from which was re-
viewed by the BCC on Nov.
22, 2011. The commissioners
agreed at that time to put in
place recommendations pro-
vided by William Graham
and George Gwynn, the at-
torneys enlisted to prepare
the report. Interviews for
the report had been con-
ducted with all five com-
missioners, Miller, former
County Administrator Lyle
Seigler, and others involved
with the purchase.
Miller said he had hoped
that commissioners who
knew the true story of the
Chat Holley purchase would
have by now come forward
with those facts. He noted
that, since that had not hap-
pened, he had reluctantly


decided to address the BCC
on the matter.
Miller commented that,'
after being shown the 1917
deed, he had later asked for
the opportunity to review
his file on the real estate
transaction. When he did, he
explained, "I discovered the
title binder which included
Note 8 and another Note 9,
both of them right-of-way
deeds, and I pulled the sur-
vey that was part of the title
binder, and was used at the
closing and subsequently in-
sured by the title policy...."
"That survey," Miller
Continued, "showed a gray
area of 33 feet. It was obvi-
ous that was the 1917 deed-
--that the property had not
been purchased twice by the
county."
Miller said that he then
sought an opinion from an
engineer on the survey and
was told that, if the survey

Walton Republican Women Federated lunch with Sen. Greg Evers


By REID TUCKER
If the regularly scheduled
December meeting of the
Walton Republican Women
Federated (WRWF) is any
indication, 2012 is going to
be a busy year for the orga-
nization.
The local Republican
group had a plateful of
business (and a steak din-
ner) to attend to during its
last meeting of the year,
held Wednesday, Dec. 14,
at Carrabba's Italian Grill
in Silver Sands Factory


Stores. The meeting was
well-attended by members
of the 50-plus-strong orga-
nization as well as local dig-
nitaries including Deputy
Tax Collector Cory Godwin
and County Commissioners
Sarah Comander and Ceci-
lia Jones. The club elected
new officers and conducted
an unofficial straw poll indi-
cating the ladies' pick in the
upcoming Republican pri-
mary (19 members voted for
Newt Gingrich and 12 voted
for Mitt Romney).


The club members also
had a question and answer
session with the guest speak-
er, state Sen. Greg Evers.
Before getting into his ad-
dress about the main issues
up for discussion during the
upcoming legislative session
in Tallahassee, Evers com-
mended the WRWF mem-
bers on the role they-played
in the last presidential elec-
tion and since. He said the
dedication of conservative
groups like theirs to shake
up the political scene from

Washington down made
him "proud to be from the
Panhandle."
He said the next election
will be critical for the GOP,
and he expects the WRWF
to have a vital part in put-
ting conservative leadership
back in Washington.
"It's got to start at (the
grassroots and it's got to
start with you women,"
Evers said. "You are the ones
who will take us to the top,
the ones who will ultimate-
ly change what we have in
Washington D.C., because if
we don't it's time to lock up
and move somewhere else."
Evers spoke on a variety
of topics, ranging from the
possibility of state-mandat-
ed inclusion of bio-ethanol
in gasoline to a push by him
and other Republicans to
do away with the REAL ID
Act in Florida. The act, first
passed by Congress in 2005,
imposes specific federally
mandated driver's license
standards that Evers and
several club members pres-
ent at the'meeting viewed
as obstructive and needless-
ly complicated. Evers also
expressed his opposition to
the National Transporta-
tion Safety Board's proposal
to place a ban on all use of a
mobile phone even hands-
free devices while operat-
ing a motor vehicle, though
he did concede that sending
text messages or mailing
while driving is a matter of
great concern to him.
However, the meat of
Evers' address dealt with
the ongoing efforts of Wal-
ton County to widen U.S.
331 into a four-lane high-
way. He had nothing but
praise for the efforts of the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners, who
he said "stepped up" to get
work done on a project from
which county residents and
visitors to the Panhandle
stand to benefit.
S"Walton County has done
a fantastic job with 331,"
Evers said. "I commend
the commissioners that you

Criminal Justice Committee and vice-chair of the transpor-
tation committee, spoke to the WRWF members on a variety

have here in Walton County
because at a time when the
state wouldn't step up, the
actual commissioners went
out ard got the easement for
the expansion on 331. They
have done a fabulous job...
I can't tell you enough how
well your commissioners
have treated you all here in
Walton County."
While Evers' talk took up
the majority of the meeting,
the main purpose of it was
to elect new officers in the
first such.election since the
WRWF was founded. Those
nominated and elected were
Karen Schibler as club pres-
ident, Dianne Hightower as
first VP, Russele Bryan as
second VP, secretary Zuma
Banks, and treasurer Anna
Weeks. The newly elected
officers will take office on
Jan. 1
Former President and
club founder Charlotte
Flynt, who moderated the
meeting, said she was hap-


py to turn leadership of the
club over to the new officers
but that her presence in the,
club would not in any way di-
minish; In fact, as the newly
elected first vice president
of the Florida Republican
Woman Federated,, which
includes 53 clubs in 67 of
Florida's counties, Flynt's
role will expand. However,
she said her' upward move
in the organization is con-
sistent with her desire for
what she views as the pur-
pose of the club she started
in Walton County.
"We have had. one goal
since the start and that is
to get a new occupant in the
SWhite House and to get the
legislature moving," Flynt
said.
"These three-and-a-half
years have been fantas-
tic," Flynt said. "I'll. still be
around and I'll'stillbe work-
ing. It's going to take a lot of
hands because we still have
a lot ofrwork to.do."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22,2011

O:'G <*C-Olecsirt


The big'day is here arind that means all the shop-
ping should be done, the tree is decorated, and the
Christmas cards have been mailed. But for many,
it will be just another day, with no reason to cel-
ebrate.


I have been very fortunate
to be able to spend-so much
time this past month, with
my family and friends. From.
Christmas parties, and fam-
ily vacations, to family din-
ners, great holiday concerts
and performances, and just
"hanging out."
This time' of the year,
there is a sense ofjoy,giving,
understanding, and cheer,
as we wrap up another year
and get ready to usher in
the new. There's a sense of
urgency and caution, but all
is made easier to accept with
a little Christmas cheer.
It is always exciting to
hear the plans of family and
friends, as they are getting
ready to load the family in
the car,.and hit the road to.
grandma's, or either rush-
ing to get all the food bori~it
and .prepared before being
inundated with family and
friends on Christmas Day,
There is a true 'sense of ex-
citement and anticipation'
as we all prepare for the big
day.
But despite all the ex-'
citement that millions are
feeling right now, there are
.some that don't really have
the holiday spirit, -for -one
reason or another. Sepa-
rated -from their families,
'grieving over a death, or
going through a bad experi-
ence, many see the holidays
as a time of depression, and/
or a reason to hide away in
their homes.
It is like taking a child
trick-or-treating in a neigh-
borhood, with all the deco-
'rated homes,, except for the
one house that won't .even
leave the porch light on so
they don't have to be dis-'
turbed. You may call them.
.a Scrooge, but sometimes:
those people just don't have


a reason to celebrate' and
would.rather avoid the holi-
day,.rather than having to
face it head on, with head
.held high.
Not to end the year on a
depressing note, but with
all the cheer, there are those
that we should stretch out.
our arms to and show them
a little more compassion and
understanding, especially
this time of year. Many
times, it-only takes a.quick
phone call to turn someone's
holiday season around..
As I sit here looking at
my Christmas tree, with
the holiday tunes blaring in
the background and all the
-Christmas cards stuffed into
my Santa card sleigh, I can't
help but, think of all those I
know that don't have family,.
or choose to be without any
family interaction during
Christmas. I also wonder
what has made their hearts
so cold'to the holidays, and
what I could have done, or
could do," to help change
their perception of this time
of year?
Should I invite them


for Christmas breakfast
and dinner? Should I carry
them over a turkey dinner
on Christmas morning, if
they want it, or not? Should
I. even really be concerned
with those who really don't
want any type ,of holiday
cheer?
Well yes, and not to sound
like a Dr. Suess Christmas
cartoon, we, should all try.
to spread the reason for the
season and give back a little
more to our fellow mankind.
It is the one time that the
last thihg on our. Christ-
mas list, should be "me, me,
me!"
This Christmas, I carl
name several who aren't
really looking forward to
Christmas Day, and have
really counted out all the
holiday season. Either they
have had a falling out with
Their families, have lost all
their loved ones and are
all alone, or they just don't
think that they have a rea-
son to celebrate. Sounds like
a losing battle to try to help.
these folks out, but why not
try extra hard this time of
year, tp make a difference in
someone else's life. ,
Christmas Day is special
to all of us, for'many, many
reasons. We all celebrate
in 'different ways, and all
of us have our own tradi-
tions that either we started
ourselves, or still.adhere to,
that grandparents started,
decades ago.
As for ne, I'will' e hav-
ing family over todmy house,
where my grandmother will
be coming from her assisted
living facility to make her
famous gcathead biscuits.'
Not only am .1 looking for-
ward to her breakfast treat,
but she is equally excited
and has something to look.


forward to, being that she is
93 years-old, and really has
no other responsibilities at
this time of her life.
But I am more excited
that my parents are having
a few of their friends over,
that do not have family in
the area, or have no close re-
lationships with their fami-
ly. It is Christmas Day, that
they will become part of our
family, and together we will
eat, open gifts, attend Sun-
day morning Christmas ser-
vices and then wrap up the
day with carols around the
"piano.
Yes, it is more people
to cook for, (and: as many
of you know, I don't cook),
prepare for, clean for, and
have to worry about having
a good time. But honestly,
isn't that what the holidays
are all about?'
So many of us tend to for-
get those who just aren't as
fortunate as we are. With all-


the holiday television ads,
the Christmas specials that
began.to air the day after
Thanksgiving, and all the
decorations that are strung
throughout our home, office,
and community, we tend to
get wrapped up in our own
holiday spirit.
What a great time to
mend those wounds with
a certain .family member,
stop by and lend an ear to a
friend that you have falen
out of touch with, or just
put a basket of fruit on an
elderly person's front porch.
The'things that we consider
minute and small in com-
parison just might be the
one special gifts that; that
particular person in need is
looking for to help get their
Christmas spirit kicked into
high gear.-
So as we gather around
the tree, the dinner table,
or the fireplace, and bring in
the holiday season, try not


to forget those who may not
have the same luxuries that
we do; which includes family
and friends. Go out of your
way' and show compassion
and charity, and offer them
a spot at Christmas dinner.
It is the time of the year,
that we celebrate the birth of
Christ, the arrival of Santa
and prepare'to make all new
resolutions for the new year.
What a great time to help
others out, mend the fences
'with past,relationships, and
just wipe the slate clean.
Make 'your friendship
and love the greatest gift
you can give to others, and
let your charity and com-
passion be the best gift that
you can keep for yourself. In
a world that is in constant
turmoil and strife, keep the
holiday spirit strong until
Christmas Day, and then
keep it going all throughout
the year. Merry CHRIST-
mas!

Smuting across the/ bridge
for work, she noted. ,On the
other .hand, she observed,
the impact on south Walton
tourists would be less, since
most would cross the bridge
only once when arriving
for their vacation and once
when departing to go home.
Dawn Moliterno, South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC) director
and Walton County's point
person for the U.S. 331. wid-
ening initiative, said that.
the objective of the meet-
School ing had been to present the

board is facts on the U.S. 331 situa-
lildren tion to the commissioners.
oned or She summarized the facts
as "Good news but tough de-
cisions." .
SMoliterno .presented evi-
dence from recent TDC siur-
veys indicating that more
than 60 percent of visitors
would choose another va-
cation, destination if traf-
Walker fic on U.S. 331 continued
S to worsen. The studies also
n indicated a concern on the
S part of more than 40 per-
15) cent of visitors about the
S lengthy evacuation time for
Says south Walton County, which

Days would make them consider
choosing another travel des-
Days -tination.
Moliterno warned that if
en steps were not taken now,
c., the result would be chal-
lenges with bottlenecks on
U.S. 331. She spoke to the
need to identify a funding
source for the local match in'
order for the bridge project
to be listed along with other
transportation projects in
a four-year plan now being
compiled.:
Barfield noted that, with-
out a funding source for the
local match being identi-
fled, DOT would have "a.
partially funded project" for
o the the bridge expansion. He
,2012 indicated that, under those
circumstances, the federal'
ima, on dollars for the project could
not be held.
lent The funds would be re-
directed to needs in other
r SY communities, commented

ledule


Moliterno.
The commissioners
turned: to. William Imfeld,
county finance director, for
a possible source of fund-
ing for the $75 million local
match.
Imfeld commented that
about a year and a half ago,
the Florida Legislature had
empowered counties to add
ail additional "one cent"
(one percent) to their sales
tax. To do so would require
a voter referendum, Imfeld
noted.
The additional .one cent
would provide $12 million
per year to the county,. Im-
feld explained, adding that
there would be interest to
pay on the bonds that would
be sold to initially provide
the local match.
He estimated that the $75
million local match could be
paid off in between nine and
11 years with the one cent
in additional sales tax.
Imfeld added that a few
years ago studies had shown
that more than 50 percent of
the county's sales tax is paid
by tourists. It was his opin-
ion that the tourists are cur-
rently paying more than 50
percent of this tax.
Cecilia Jones observed
that the commissioners
could let the voters choose
between a toll and a sales
tax.
SMoliterno recommended
moving quickly if the sales
tax increase were to be con-
sidered, since a special elec-
tion would be required to au-
Sthorize it. She also called for
a plan to "'vet this through
ome' citizens" hin advance.
She proposed a "blue ribbon
task force" of residents who
could examine whether any
other funding options might,
exist and then come back to
the BCC with findings. She
suggested that each com-
missioner select a person to
serve on the panel.
Comander moved to ap-
point the task force, and her
motion was approved unani-
mously.
Panel appointees include
Walton County Sheriff Mike
Adkinson; Kitty Whitney,
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce director; Bonnie
McQuiston of the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion; Wayne Bodie of Florida
Transformer; and Lee Gran-
tham of CHELCO.

Information on meetings
to be held by the task force
will be forthcoming.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22,2011


Two artists to exhibit works at


Coastal Branch in January


*"KINGFISHER AND THE FROG," by Robin I'iesneth.


These artists are sched-
uled to exhibit at the Coast
Branch Library in January
of 2012. The Coastal Branch
Library is located at. 437
Greenway Trail, Santa Rosa
Beach, FL, (850) 267-2809,
and is open Monday, 9 a.m. -
8 p.m. and Tuesday through
Friday, 9 a.m. 5 p.m. Born
in England, Gina Ricci is a
self-taught artist. Her style
of illustration reflects her
childhood favorites such as
.Kenneth Grahame's The
Wind in the Willows, A.A.
Milne's Winnie the Pooh,
the poems of Walter de la
Mare, and the art of Beatrix
Potter. And although she
has lived in the U.S. for 30
years, her roots from home
are still strong. Childhood
memories of lovely holidays,
and lots of imagination con-


tinue to shape her illustra-
tions and stories.
Over the years Gina has
worked in various mediums,
but she uses Prismacolor
coloring pencils for her. il-
lustrations. The intensity
and range of colors are well
suited to children's picture
books and provide a rich-
ness that suits her style.
The "completed artwork
transfers beautifully to the
digital format, while keep-
ing the traditional look of a
picture book. Gina currently
has several interactive chil-
dren's app books available
through her website www.
meanderart.com and www.
pickpocketbooks. She be-
lieves that digital books
play an important roll and
can encourage children to
become avid readers using
all formats of reading, both
electronic and traditional.
The quirky yet realistic
paintings of Robin Wiesneth
depict humorous scenes of
whimsy and charm. Her de-
lightful art often features
fanciful scenes like dogs fly-
ing toy rockets and life-like
predators with cartoon prey.
Created with a deft hand,
her paintings appear seam-
lessly real, even though


they sprout from her imagi-
nation. When Robin is not
creating whimsical art from
her imagination, she's busy
doing commission portraits
of dogs and& other pets. No
request is too crazy and her


work ranges from tradition-
al portraits to silly imagi-
nary settings. Visit her web
site for more information

soon after the surfacing of
the 1917 deed. The report
was provided by Tallahas-:

Sat the request of Lloyd Blue
of 331 Bayside Properties,
seller of the Chat Holley
parcel.
While rioting that the
33-foot-wide strip had at one
time been transferred to the
county and later conveyed to
another party, Gardner con-
cluded that the deed associ-
ated with the county's 2010
purchase "did not include
any property : previously
owned by the County and,
specifically, did not include
the 33-foot-wide strip...."
Gardner also opined that,
while the 1917 deed had
Been listed as an:~exception
to the title in the 2010 pur-
chase transaction, he would
surmise that this had been
done "out of an abundance
of caution."
Miller did not reference
the findings of the indepen-
dent report obtained by the
county, but that report also
concluded that the" 33-foot
strip "does not appear to_
be within the boundaries of
the description of the Prop-
erty." Instead, the Graham/

,the strip was shown on the
survey preceding the 2010

Illegal for the county to


use the property for a pur-
pose other than roadway, he
argued.
Miller also addressed al-
legations in the local press
about a business relation-
ship or arrangement be-
tween himself and local
attorney/developer Lloyd
Blue, owner of the L.L.C.
that sold the Chat Holleyv
parcel to the county.
"He is my friend and has
been for a long time," he told
the commissioners,. "but so
are some of you and others
in this room, I hope.",
"The only property that
I ever held with Mr. Blue
was in 1976 or somewhere
in there," Miller recalled,
explaining that he, Blue
and another attorney had
received a parcel of land
at Seaside as an attorney's
fee.
"We divided it up into
three equal parcels, sold it
off, and that was the last we
ever did. I think the L.L.C.
was 'dissolved in 1990 or
something like that, but we
never did any business after
that," Miller maintained.
Miller also challenged
press accounts that he had
been on a $10,000-per-
month retainer with the
county when the land deal
has closed. "I was on an
hourly basis with the county
and had been 'for almost a
year," he asserted.
Prior to Miller's com-
ments, attorney Hoshihara
had advised the commis-
sioners not to discuss the
Chat Holley transaction
with Miller, since the coun-
ty is involved in ongoing
litigation associated with
the matter. This is in con-
nection with a lawsuit filed
by Miramar Beach resident
Suzanne Harris against the
BCC seeking to negate the


land purchase. The lawsuit
makes a number of allega-
tions against Miller with
regard to his work with the
transaction.
"It's sad," Miller told the
commissioners, "that you've
been told not to talk today
because that's completely
ridiculous...I think the peo-
ple want to hear from you.
That's why you were elect-
ed."
Miller charged that the
' BCC was hiding "behind the
cloak of a frivolous lawsuit,"
in declining to respond to
his remarks.
Miller said of Harris, "I
don't know why she's after
me. But I can tell her this,
I'm here and I'm not afraid.
So if she wants to come at
me, just come a-runnin'!"
Miller insisted that his
conscience is clear with re-
gard to the Chat Holley
purchase and all his other
work for Waltoh 'County.
He-maintained that he had
never failed to keep the best
interest of the county com-
mission at heart. "I hope I've
done a good job. I promise
you that I have made mis-
takes, but they'were not in-
tentional," Miller concluded
to loud applause in the com-
mission chamber.
Remarks by Driftwood
Estates resident Alan Os-
borne followed those of Mill-
er.
Responding to Miller's
statements, Osborne said,
"I don't care what some-
body said up here tonight.
Somebody lied, because he
just said that what was in
the (independent counsel)
report-wasn't true. So ei-
ther those people didn't ask
you those questions or those
weren't your answers," he
told the commissioners.
"His statement and that


report statement cannot
both be true." Osborne con-
tinued, "I want to think that
the attorneys you hired that
weren't from here had no
agenda when they did that
interview.
"It doesn't change the
facts that some of that stuff
wasn't there," Osborne told
the commissioners. "you
didn't know who you were
buying the property from."
He also questioned why, if
Miller's statements were
true, that he or someone else
did not "get up and speak"
much earlier, before, the
county had conducted an in-
vestigation on the transac-
tion and a lawsuit had been
filed.
"Something's wrong here
and everybody knows it, and
everybody in this. county is'
tired of it, and that's'why
everybody is coming out af-
ter this "cause they've had
enough of this kind of stuff,"
Osborne charged.
Osborne then turned to
the subject of the Sandestin
DRI Annual Monitoring Re-
port. "We are very unhappy
about this report," he told
the commissioners on behalf
of Driftwood residents. Os-
borne complained that the
residents had not been no-
tifed that this annual report
was due as had been prom-
ised. Osborne also found
"scary" some statements he
said he had seen in the re-
port regarding changes to be
made to the Driftwood plat
by the Sandestin owner.
Osborne warned the com-
missioners that an attorney
representing Driftwood ho-
meowners would be taking
up this report with them in
January.
The BCC did not respond
to any of the public com-
ments at the commission
meeting.
