By REID TUCKER

The DeFuniak Springs
City Council voted unani-
mously to have background
checks on applicants for the
city manager position be
handled in-house, rather
than by Walton County.
The decision, an about-
face from the Council's pre-
vious consensus to approach
Walton County's Human
Resources Department to
carry out the background
checks, came at a specially-
held meeting on Thursday,
Dec. 29. The reason for the
change in opinion was the
result of a meeting the pre-
vious day between Mayor
Harold Carpenter, City At-
torney Clayton Adkinson
and County Administrator
Greg Kisela. Adkinson in-
formed the Council that, in
the opinion of Walton Coun-
ty administration, a conflict
would exist should the Hu-
man Resources Department
conduct the background
checks, meaning the Coun-
cil now had to reassess its
own decision on the matter.
By way of exploring oth-
er options, Adkinson spoke
with Superintendent of


Schools Carlene Anderson
about the possibility of hav-
ing the background checks
on the four city manager
candidates be conducted by
School District staff. How-
ever, Adkinson said little
advantage could be gleaned
from taking this approach
as the School District
would charge the city a fee
to conduct the same driver's
license checks the city has
the capability of perform-
ing, but would further have
to assign, a School District
staffer to the task, which
could delay the completion
of the background check
process.
A motion was made by
Councilman Mac work to
have Michelle Schack, the
city's Human Resources
Manager, carry out the
background checks "from
start to finish," a process
which includes cheeks with
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and con-
tacts with the applicants'
former employers. Adkinson
reminded the Council that
the person conducting the
checks simply gathers the
required information and
does not make a recommen-


dation to the board.
Councilman Kermit
Wright initially supported
having the School District
perform the background
checks in an effort to prevent
the city from having any
scrutiny brought against it
during the process, especial-
ly with Interim City Ma;1i;ig
er Sara Bowers being one of
the final four applicants for
the full-time position. How-
ever, as Bowers' applica-
tion and background check
had already been completed
during the first round of ap-
plications, her information
would not need to be run
again. Wright then joined
the rest of the Council in
voting 5-0 in favor of having
background checks be car-
ried out by city staff.
Schack was set to begin
working on the background
checks this week with the
aim of having them complet-
ed in time for the Council's
first regularly scheduled
meeting of 2012 on Monday,
Jan 9. The Council's next
move will be to set dates to
begin conducting interviews
with each of the final four
candidates for the city man-
ager position.

Scenic Corridor Foundation creates


PSA with Walton County students


The Scenic Corridor
Foundation held a contest
between Walton County
fourth and seventh-grade
students charging them
with creating a public ser-
vice announcement (PSA)
for television. The students
were asked to submit videos
and scripts that focused on
making the public aware of
the consequences of litter-
ing. By participating in the
contest, the students were
able to fulfill various "Sun-
shine Standards" mandated
by the Florida Department
of Education. The winning
entry was unanimously cho-
sen by the executive board
of the Scenic Corridor Foun-
dation.
"We were all very im-
pressed with the entries,
and especially enjoyed
watching all the videos, but
the fourth-grade students of
\est DeFuniak Elementary
submitted the best message
we want to convey to the
public," said Merlin Allan,
president of the Scenic Cor-
ridor Foundation. "We are
grateful to the E.O. Wilson
Biophilia Center for helping
us get the word out about
the contest."
The E.O Wilson Biophilia
Center educates fourth and
seventh-grade students on
important environmental
topics, including littering
and recycling. This year, the

bell, Dalton Whitehurst, Chloe Alford, Lance Ellis, Krislynn McLaney, Principal Darlene Paul and Teacher Hope Bur-
gess.


education packets sent to
Walton Count': fourth and
seventh-grade teachers also
included information about
the PSA contest. "We felt
the contest was a perfect
fit for our curriculum," ex-
plained Christy Scally, ex-
ecutive director of the E.O.


Wilson Biophillia Center.
"Specifically, we found the
PSA contest complimented
our topic of 'Talking Trash,'
an extensive curriculum
that educates students on
where materials come from
and how recycling saves
natural resources."


The commercial is spon-
sored by Waste Manage-
ment, and Alys Beach. It will
be professionally produced
by award-winning cinema-
tographer Elam Stoltzfus in
January of 2012, for imme-
diate statewide syndication.
The winning students will


be the actors in the commer-
cial. "When I found out my
students won, I was so excit-
ed for them. I could hardly
wait to see their faces. They
all think they are going to
be movie stars," said Hope
Burgess, teacher of the win-
ning students.

The task force will be look-

One would be a $2 toll on
the new southbound bridge
span on which the state an-
ticipates construction will
begin in 2013. The other op-
tion would be an 1-percent
increase by Walton County
in its sales tax. It has been
estimated that the proposed
toll would continue for a
30-year period. If the sales
tax increase is the funding
method selected, it has been
estimated that bonds that
would be sold to initially
fund the local match would
be paid off in approximately
11 years.
The state Department of
Transportation has commu-
nicated to Walton County
that the over $100 mil-
lion in federal funding that
would be made available to
fund the bridge expansion
depends on the local match
being provided.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 5,2012


CRNC welcomes new director


Chautauqua Rehabilita-
tion and Nursing Center
(CRNC) recently welcomed
Brian McFeely as its new ad-
ministrator after long-time
administrator Dawne Dries
was promoted to director
of operations for Signature
HealthCARE's facilities in
rural Florida. After a suc-
cessful 30 years working at
the center 20 years as ad-
ministrator Dawne Dries


said farewell to a large fam-
ily of staff and residents.
When asked how she felt
about her new promotion,
Dawne replied, "I am hon-
ored that I have an oppor-
tunity to advance with Sig-
nature HealthCARE, but
my heart will always be
with the residents and staff
of Chautauqua Rehab, and
with Walton County."
During her time as ad-


-vra

Father Time

Says "Goodbye"

I'll take my leave,
my time's now done,
Baby New Year
is on the run.

Twenty eleven had
many bad storms,
My weather for some
showed its alarms.

Looking back on
the year gone by,
I caused many
to sit and cry.

With a little hope
and a bit of love,
I've asked the sun
to shine above.

The future remains
a mystery,
now I'm part of
its history.

I give my blessing to
Baby New Year,
and pray his days bring
happiness here.

By Mary Ann Whiddon


ministrator. Dawne has seen
many changes at CRNC and
has been instrumental in
bringing those changes. Her
proudest accomplishment is
bringing the short-term re-
habilitation unit to CRNC
so that local residents would
no longer have to leave their
loved ones so far away when
they needed rehabilitative
care.
"My dad had a stroke fol-
lowing open heart surgery in
1983 and for a year, my fam-
ily had to live in Pensacola,
Florida in order to receive
rehabilitative therapy," she
recalled. "My mom actually
moved over there to be with
him and lived in an apart-
ment, and my brother and I
drove back and forth to see
them. It was my dream to
someday be able to provide
local families with rehab in
our hometown."
That dream came to frui-
tion in 2007 when CRNC
opened its 34-bed short-
term inpatient rehabilita-
tion wing. The wing offers
20 private rooms, two ther-
apy gyms and an outpatient
therapy clinic.
"Dawne was the kind of
administrator who was not
afraid to take on the most
difficult tasks in the facil-
ity. Many times she could
be found painting, providing
resident care, or scrubbing
base boards just to name a
few. Dawne led by example
and always put the care of


the residents first and she
will be greatly missed by
residents and staff."
After a year-long search
for the right candidate.
Dawne and the administra-
tion of Signature Health-
CARE are confident that
Brian McFeely is the right
match. Brian comes to
CRNC as an experienced
nursing home administrator
of several Alabama skilled
nursing/rehabilitation fa-
cilities, including Woodley
Manor Health and Rehabili-
tation in Montgomery, and
Cogburn Health and Reha-
bilitation of Midtown, Inc.
in Mobile.
Most recently, Brian
served as vice president of
health services for Mercy
Medical Rehabilitation Hos-
pital and Skilled Nursing
Facility in Daphne, Ala.
Prior to his administrative
roles, Brian served in the
U.S. Army and attended
the University of Alabama,
where he majored in Health
Care Management. Brian
is also a licensed practical
nurse (LPN) and was a na-
tionally certified gastroen-
terology nurse. He and wife
Leann have two teenaged
daughters, Elizabeth and
Melissa.
"I am really proud to be
part of the team at CRNC
and am looking forward to
my family and I being a part
of the DeFuniak Springs
community," he said.


Laurel Hill man struck

and killed on U.S. 331


A Laurel Hill man was
killed in an accident on U.S.
331 N. near the intersection
of Webster Road. The acci-
dent took place on Dec. 28
at 7:30 p.m.
A Florida Highway Pa-
trol (FHP) report stated
that Edward Jasper Wil-
son, 82, of Laurel Hill, had
been involved as a driver
in a previous crash with
another vehicle. Wilson
reportedly checked on the
occupants of that vehicle,
and then attempted to cross
the roadway from the east


paved shoulder to the west:
He entered the southbound
lane of U.S. 331, and into
the path, of a southbound
vehicle. The driver and sole
occupant of the southbound
vehicle was Joseph J. Hall,
56, of Louisville, Ky. Hall's
vehicle struck Wilson. Wil-
son was killed, and Hall was
not injured.
The FHP report states
that alcohol was not a factor
with Hall, and that an in-
vestigation is pending into
whether alcohol had been a
factor with Wilson.

Wanna




bet?

By BRUCE COLLIER
I invite you to read Dotty Nist's article this week on the
gambling expansion bills currently pending in both cham-
bers of the state Legislature. They are SB710 and H487,
and though they are still in committee, this is the kind of
legislation that can fly through, thanks to highly motivated
sponsors and supporters. If passed, the bill could become
law in July of this year.
The pending bills reorganize the state's regulatory struc-
ture for gaming, setting up a Department of Gaming Con-
trol and a State Gaming Commission. Three "destination
resorts" could potentially be licensed to offer "limited gam-
bling," which would include slot machines, roulette and
craps tables.
There are multiple regulatory hoops to jump through,
stiff application fees ($1 million, non-refundable, just to ap-
ply) and a requirement that applicants receive "conceptual
approval" from the municipality or county where the resort
is to be located. On top of that, the voters in the relevant
county have to have approved either slots or limited gam-
bling, via a countywide referendum.
Impossible? Maybe. There's going to be opposition, from
those with plain old moral objections to gambling. No one
will ever convince them that gambling isn't sinful, so they're
a constant.
Next, there's the people who don't care for the sort of
customers they think are attracted to gambling resorts.
Granted, Las Vegas has pretty much re-invented itself as a
"family" destination, with kid-friendly attractions, venues
offering not the Rat Pack, but Cirque du Soleil, and fine din-
ing from celebrity chefs like Emeril and Bobby Flay. Still,
it's hard to shake off the image of a one-trick town filled with
guys like Tony Soprano, all-night strip joints and smoke-
filled poker rooms. How does "We Got Your Beach Right
Here" sound as a branding slogan? As for crime, well, like
fish, crooks and hustlers go where the prey can be found.
Somewhere, somebody is trying to dovetail the twin con-
cepts gambling and family tourism. So where does that
leave all the other concepts sleepy fishing village's, eco-
pristine beaches, artist-friendly communities that have
been variously floated over the years? We could try to accom-
modate them all, but the only way I can figure to do that is
to create a theme park, with pavilions for each. "Here's your
all-day pass that admits you to WhiteBeach,AnglersWorld,
Bio-Funland, SandDance Commune, and HitMeAgain Ca-
sino. Spend a Nice Day."
I have no particular moral objection to gambling, unless
it's done by people who can't afford to lose what they bet,
in which case it's not a moral objection, just bewilderment.
What troubles me about all this is the same thing that trou-
bled me when I lived in New Orleans in the '80s and '90s.
There was a frantic push for casino gambling there. Why do
these proposals only come up during hard economic times?
We are told about all the jobs this will create. Yes, we'll
need some dealers, floor supervisors, cashiers, etc., but how
many? Most of the jobs created will be for servers, bartend-
ers, kitchen staff, housekeepers and groundsmen aren't
they pretty much the same kind of jobs that non-gambling
resorts are supposed to create already?
No doubt someone (still) envisions this as a mecca for
classy, well-heeled rich people with millions-in disposable
income, who will gamble, wine and dine, spending their lei-
sure hours watching big-name entertainment and dropping
even more cash at designer boutiques and restaurants. If
you haven't noticed, designer boutiques and restaurants
open and close around here like doors in a French farce.
They don't do that because people.are breaking down their
doors to get in and spend.
I like prosperity as much as anyone, but this has that
same air of desperation I felt in New Orleans. I know people
have shorter attention spans now than at any point in his-
tory, but this is a quick fix, waiting not to happen.

I remember in the not so distant past an ex-city manager
who abruptly left DeFuniak Springs in 2005 on the heels
of an ethics complaint that was filed against him, alleging
among other things that he was paying city employee ben-
efits he was not entitled to because the injury was not "job
related."
Fast forward to 2011... Recently there was an attempt by
at the city attorney and City Council Members to bring this
ex-city manager back to DeFuniak Springs. The plan hit a
roadblock when the elected city marshal's office was asked
to conduct a background check that would not have cost the
taxpayers any additional money. Shame on you Paul "Mac"
Work and City Attorney Clayton Adkinson for questioning
the process and the length of time it was taking to conduct
the background check and kudos to our police department
for trying to do what was requested of them.
Its unfortunate in this day and age that we don't conduct
background checks on elected officials because chances are
we wouldn't make the mistake of electing child abusers or

keep those with hidden agendas in office. Shame on the city
for paying the Walton School Board to conduct background
checks on potential city employees when our own city police
department is perfectly able, willing and already paid to do
the job.
Given the current state of the economy you (the City
Council) should be ashamed of yourselves for squandering
taxpayer money in order to perpetuate your own personal
agendas. These attempts by the city attorney and certain
Council members to micro-manage the day to day opera-
tions of the city are just ridiculous power struggles that
are costing the taxpayers money! The entire process has
become a political sham and we are no closer to a city man-
ager now than we were months ago. If you really wanted
someone capable and qualified you would support hiring a
city manager that can listen to the Council and then carry
out its policies in a way that benefits all who live there and
not just a chosen few.

My name is Devero Bogart, the president of the
Walton High Anchor Club. I feel that my service-oriented
club was successful in 2011 because we had and continue
to have a community that supports us in our efforts. I just
wanted to say thank you as this new year begins.
Among the groups of people who have 'assisted our
projects throughout the year are the DeFuniak Springs City
Council who allowed us to host our Hometown Heroes Ban-
quet at the DeFuniak Springs Civic Center. Our Hometown
Heroes Project was successful because of media coverage
from the DeFuniak Herald Breeze, and the WZEP radio
station. Walton Middle School also helped us contact many
veterans in our community. The Walton County Prevention
Coalition and Students Working Against Tobacco helped us
kick off the project in May 2011 while Walmart provided


the perfect location. With everyone's help, the WHS Anchor
Club was able to share how much we care about our former
and current US military members.
Our children's projects could not have been suc-
cessful without the help from the Walton County Sheriffs
Department, the DeFuniak Springs Fire Department, the
DeFuniak Springs City Marshal's Office and CHELCO. The
DFS Pilot Club, our sponsors, also supported us throughout
the year.
Thank you to these organizations and every other
person or club who has contributed to our success in 2011.
We look forward to working with all of you in 2012 as we
strive to make our school, our community, and our world a
better place to live.

Walton's Review: Just received my PHD. For it I've also
name changed it to the Establishment's Review. Just a little
background before we start. County's lie about employment,
Walton Florida Health Dept. denied healthcare for cancer,
a Jobs Plus that's useless, Mossy Head Industrial Park and
Truckstop jobs-all lies. You people have one thing,, all your
eggs in one basket. Millions for 331. She said this will cre-
ate jobs. But for how long. And for who? Not one of you
so called Golden Ground breaking Shovels. (14) will follow
up. There's only two things for this road. To go collect the
high price beach taxes for your own establishment and get
the tourist back and forth. You people have no economy up
north and no incentive to get any. Beach, beach the people's
taxes just for your closed up gov't for yourselves. Retire-
ment, bennies, raises and health care included.
I once called the Citizens' Services fellow about my above


background, his answer, I don't have anything to do about
that. How worthless. Veteran's Day wasn't long ago. And I
hope the freedom that I participated in giving you people
is well received that this establishment (conservative) has
made me poor and hungry. Let me give you a little heads
up. You so called leaders and college ed. Economist ought to
swing by Eglin and demand part of that defense allocation.
Look at Okaloosa, Defense Contractors everywhere, a new
base for Crestview. Drive over and look at the growth. You
boys and girls scared to get in your car. The establishments
reservation acreage is immens e. Either way you people
are to dumb not to do it or you like your establishment just
the way it is making people poor. Put your suit and ties on
and go down to the beach for your pictures and don't forget
to smile. Happy New Year.

Florida's tourism industry is bracing for two big
battles when the Legislature convenes for its 2012 session
next week one with out-of-state casino developers, and
another with itself. Separate debates over whether to allow
the construction of casinos in South Florida and how to tax
hotel rooms sold by travel websites are expected to consume
much of the industry's attention during the 60-day session,
which opens Jan. 10. That's not to say the industry won't be
seeking other things from state lawmakers during the next
two months. The industry will also be lobbying to get more
money for travel advertising and to block anti-immigration
crackdowns, among a host of other issues. But the casino
and tax debates are likely to be the loudest. When it comes
to casinos, the industry has formed a mostly united
front. Individual businesses, chief among them Walton Dis-
ney World. and trade groups such as the Florida Restau-
rant and Lodging Association and the Florida Attractions
Association are all opposed to legislation that, as currently
written, would authorize the construction of three multi-


billion-dollar casino resorts in Miami-Dade and Broward
counties. The Genting Group, based in Malaysia, and both
Las Vegas Sands and Wynn Resorts, based in Las Vegas,
are lobbying in favor of the proposal. Tourism leaders con-
tend that adult-oriented gambling could damage the state's
family-oriented brand. They also fear huge casinos could
cannibalize existing tourism businesses, eroding their in-
come from conventions, Latin America and other niches.
"Any benefit to Florida will never outweigh the heavy cost,"
the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association says in a
position statement opposed to casinos. The opposition is not
unanimous. The Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel As-
sociation hasn't taken a position, but the Greater Miami
Chamber of Commerce is seen as pro-casino, according to
the Miami Herald. And while both Disney and SeaWorld
Orlando are publicly opposed to casinos, Universal Orlando,
whose parent company is business partners with Genting
in Singapore, has so far remained neutral.... By Jason Gar-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY. JANUARY 5. 2012


Sign Ordinance Committee meets before


making recommendations to DFS City Council


By REID TUCKER

The DeFuniak Springs
Sign Ordinance Commit-
tee held a brief meeting on
Jan. 2, allowing the public a
final say before the commit-
tee submits its final recom-
mendation to the DeFuniak
Springs City Council next
week.
Like all Sign Ordinance
Committee meetings, this
one was open to the public,
something committee chair-
man Art Dees mentioned in
light of a comment he said
he received from a member
of the community regard-
ing the lack of a prohibition
against billboards among
the committee's proposed
changes.


Nearly 13,000 American
women were diagnosed with
cervical cancer in 2011, and
more than 4,000 died from
an advanced form of the
disease, according to the
National Cancer Institute
(NCI). Allsup, a nationwide
provider of Social Security
Disability Insurance (SSDI)
representation, works with
hundreds of cancer patients
each year, and is raising
awareness of the need for
screening and preventive
care during Cervical Health
Awareness Month in Janu-
ary.


Dees said the proposed
changes to the ordinance
give the city a "buffer zone"
against nuisances and that
the ordinance was not in-
tended to cover every pos-
sible eventuality. Language
in the ordinance gives the
City Council the right of fi-
nal review of all questions
regarding signage, not least
of which involve safety and
public nuisances. That said,
Dees pointed out that it was
not the committee's purpose
to set DeFuniak Springs'
citizens against its business
owners.
"This is not business ver-
sus citizens by any stretch
of the imagination," he said.
"We were asked by [the
Council] to make recom-


Regular Pap tests, which
detect significant abnormal
cell changes that may arise
before cancer develops, re-
duce deaths from cervical
cancer.
Women who have never
been screened or who have
not been screened in the past
five years face a greater risk
of developing invasive cervi-
cal cancer.
Most medical experts
agree women age 21 (or
younger, if they are sexually
active) to about 70 should be
screened every two to three
years.


mendations from the busi-
ness community as to what
we would like to see. It will
go to a public hearing. It
will go before the Council. It
will go through the normal
process so that everyone
will have the opportunity [to
participate].
"We are in this together.
Citizens benefit from a good
business community and
vice-versa."
Only a few areas of the
revised sign ordinance pro-
posal were altered from the
last review, mainly in the
areas dealing with Section
17.03, which addresses off-
premises signs, and in the
inclusion of Section 17.13,
which details permit re-
quirements and the fines


Women should seek ex-
pert medical advice about
when they should begin
screening, how often they
should be screened, and
when they can discontinue
cervical screenings, espe-
cially if they are at higher
than average risk due to fac-
tors such as HIV infection.
Despite the effectiveness
of Pap tests in preventing
deaths, the most recent NCI
statistics (2005) indicate
that more than 20 percent
of women aged 18 and older
had not had a Pap test with-


associated with not follow-
ing those requirements.
Section 17.03's Subsection
C was revised to allow "off-
premises" signs. those not
actually located on the same
property as the business
for which they advertise, to
be located within 100 feet
of a residential zone (when
measured along the com-
mon right-of-way). This is a
reduction-from the previous
wording, which prohibited
off-premises signs from be-
ing located within 300 feet
of residential zones.
Sections associated with
permitting are not new to
the city's sign ordinance,
but Section 17.13 is new in
the sense that the original
revised ordinance, first in-


in the past three years.

According to the National
Cervical Cancer Coalition,
while routine administra-
tion of Pap tests is the best
method to detect cervical
cancer at an early stage,
vaccines have the potential
to protect women from the
disease by targeting cancer-
causing types of human pap-
illomavirus (HPV). HPV, a
virus transmitted through
sexual contact, is the single
known cause of cervical can-
cer.


produced in an streamlined
form at the committee's first
meeting on July 14 of last
year. did away with the per-
mitting process altogether.
Though committee chair-
man Art Dees said he and
the rest of the group did not
initially want a permitting
process at all, legal concerns
regarding enforceability of
the new ordinance neces-
sitated the inclusion of sec-
tions detailing the process
by which business owner
could apply for permits.
The permitting process is
largely the same as before,
only simpler and with less
regulation overall. Repairs
and replacement of glass or
plastic panels can be carried
out without a new permit
but any major structural al-
terations will require a new
permit. Also, the permit ap-
plication will still require
drawings and specifications
of the sign, including size,
construction materials,
manner of illumination if
any and other usual details.
The section also includes
a provision for a $100 fine if
construction of a sign is be-
gun without first obtaining
a permit. Any construction


must cease until a proper
permit is applied for.
The Sign Ordinance
Committee will make its
recommendation to the City
Council at its next regularly
scheduled meeting, the first
such meeting of 2012, on
Monday. Jan. 9. After that,
the Council will begin ad-
vertising for public hearings
before the new ordinance is
put to the vote. It was Dees'
wish that the Council take
to heart the changes made
to the sign ordinance with
the understanding that the
changes made reflect the de-
sires of the people of the city
and business community
alike.
"I hope the Council will
see this as the best effort of
a combination of citizens of
businesses coming together
and saying 'we want to show
concern about our city but
we also want to allow the
opportunity for businesses
to, if not prosper, at least
survive,"' Dees said. 'That's
been the core understand-
ing of this group. I hope that
Council will accept this as a
first step. I hope they won't
try to re-do what this group
has done."


Red Bay Fire Station

Grand Opening set


The grand opening of the
new Red Bay fire station
will be Saturday, Jan. 7, at
10 a.m.,


in the Red Bay Community
on SR-81.

Refreshments to follow.


I hope your Christmas
and New Year was merry
and well! As with most holi-
days, I asked for a stack of
books: Mark Twain, Stieg
Larsson, those rectangular
shaped packages under the
tree make my inner-child
do a little inner-dance. This
year, however, one of the
rectangular shaped' pack-
ages was a fraud. Instead of
bindings of glue and paper
and ink, it was bound with
wires and circuits and the
promise of libraries inside.
I have rarely considered
an e-reader. Like author
Rick Bragg, I stare at my
crowded bookcases that
have overflowed into piles
on the nightstand and floor,
and couldn't imagine them
existing in a digital world
without the smell of grainy
pages or the feel of raised
type-font. The sheer thrill
of rummaging through an
old bookstore to find a first
edition hiding amongst the
paperbacks is delicious-
yes, that is exactly the word,
delicious. I could sit and sift
through the wisdom of the
ages all day, in trendy new
bookstores with overpriced
hardbacks and coffee shops
tucked away in the corner
where college singles have
their first dates, little shops
that trade Charlotte Bronte
for Stephen King and barely
make enough to keep the
doors open, or public librar-
ies in which stout librar-
ians peek out from under
furrowed eyebrows and tor-
toise-shell glasses.
Books belong in a world
where Lisbeth Salander
mingles with J.D. Salin-
ger; where Emma Bovary
and Jay Gatsby talk about
what could have been, and
Bronte smiles while Cathy
and Heathcliff escape to run
about the moors. As vividly
as my characters fill my
house, my mind, my life.
I can't imagine confining
them to a small, cold square
of coding.
Yet, much of my interest
is a mix of old and new-
the firmly held belief in eti-


quette, saying "ma'am" and
"sir" and sending handwrit-
ten thank-you notes, without
the more burdensome rules
of Emily Post, such as this
little gem: "If a man doesn't
enjoy the conversation a
lady has offered, a woman
mustn't be offended, but
rather keep fishing for top-
ics he might find agreeable."
What a pain in the neck.
Thank goodness that has
not stood the test of time.
Likewise, there are other
items of the past I am glad
to know only from historical
archives: corsets, covered
wagons, the prescription of
65 milligrams of morphine
in children's "soothing syr-
ups" for teething.
But books, oh glorious,
wisdom-filled, adventure-
inducing books are as good
as they were hot off the
Gutenberg press 500 years
ago. Paper and glue and
cardboard and ink, the feel
of the pages under your fin-
gers, the pleasure of hearing
the page slice as it turns,
the grainy edges and worn
covers and dog-eared pas-
sages to be read and re-read.
What more could a biblio-
phile want?
The answer, I suppose,
is the infinite access of an
e-reader, from which litera-
ture lovers (and it is a love
affair) can carry an entire
library in their pockets and
devour the classics or the
midnight releases at the
touch of a button (bonus, e-
books are nearly half off the
price of paper books). Thus,
I will keep the best of the old
and march forward into the
uncharted (at least to me)
territory of the new, watch-
ing my characters come to
life on a glare-proof screen,
hand-sketched illustrations
replaced by meticulous com-
puter graphics. My Kindle
Fire will accompany me,
tucked into its sleek case,
but next to it, will always
be a book made by the good
earth-for how could Cathy
and Heathcliff ever run

placed and the CIC Chil-
dren's Neighborhood had a
Christmas like most other
kids in the community.

We didn't have presents
for all of the children since
we get new children almost
daily but now we do! We
can't thank the TACP Team
enough for their donation of
time and hard work."
Hair added, "Military and
civilian children bf our com-
munity fall under the same
foster program. I'm very
thankful that the TACP

From JULIE HURST, CEO
As we pack away the
holiday lights and decora-
tions, we unpack our wishes
for 2012. If you asked me
what I wanted most in 2012,
I would tell you I wish all
children live happy, healthy
safe lives, free of abuse and
neglect. You see last year
we saw 625 child victims of
physical and sexual abuse
in Walton and Okaloosa
counties. These are reported
cases. There are probably
2/3 more child victims cases
that go unreported.
Reporting child abuse
has been an explosive media
storm as a result of the case
at Penn State. Many adults


did not protect this child
victim. To date, there have
been many victims who
have come forward in this
case. If only someone would
have reported responsibly
years ago. So many had the
chance but chose to turn a
blind eye. They had an op-
portunity to help save this
child and the many victims
following. Child abuse is
ugly, but if we don't take the
steps to stop it, who will? If
children can't depend on us,
who do they turn to?
I wonder about the little
toddler who was recently
allegedly died at the hands
of his father and his fa-
ther's fiance, the very peo-
ple who were supposed


to love and protect him. I
am very saddened by his
death. From news reports
he was malnourished and
had many bruises. Surely
someone over his short life,
noticed. Had they picked
up the phone and reported,
he might be alive today. We
will never know. The only
solace I have is he is no lon-
ger suffering and truly is
with someone up above who
loves him.
As I've said over the
years, we all need to take re-
sponsibility for all children,
not just our own. When
we know or suspect child
abuse, we need to pick up
the phone and call the Flor-
ida Child Abuse hotline at


1-800-96-ABUSE. It can
save a life. It could have
saved the toddler who
died. Do it for him. Help-
ing another child would be a
tribute in his memory.
We have tough work at
the Children's Advocacy
Center. We could not do
what we do without the
communities embracing our
cause and the children we
serve. We continue to make
progress on our temporary
home on U.S. 90, not quite
finished but close. We'll keep
you posted. If you would like
to get involved, please con-
tact me at 833-9237, ext.
223. Wishing everyone the
best for 2012.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 2012


St. Cloud man arrested following a traffic stop


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) arrested
Jordan Whaley, 21, of St.
Cloud, Fla., for possession of
ecstasy, LSD and marijua-
na. He was arrested Dec.
22.
The investigation began
Dec. 22 after Deputy Nick
Bearden and Lee, a certified
narcotics detection canine,


conducted a traffic stop near
mile marker 88 on Inter-
state 10 on a vehicle with a
tinted windshield.
A probable cause search
of the vehicle was conducted
after Lee alerted the deputy
of the possible presence of il-
legal narcotics in the vehicle.
During the search, Bearden
recovered what appeared to


be marijuana contained in a
plastic bag with a smoking
device, and approximately
three ecstasy pills and two
LSD "hits- contained in a
suitcase.

Whaley was charged with
one count of possession of a
hallucinogen with intent to
sell. a second-degree felony:


one count of possession of a
controlled substance with-
out a prescription, a third-
degree felony: one count of
possession of marijuana, a
first-degree misdemeanor;
and one count of possession
of drug paraphernalia, a
first-degree misdemeanor.
He was booked into the Wal-
ton 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 several
suspects and seized more
than eight pounds of mari-
juana, 45 pounds of cocaine.
two ounces of methamphet-
amine and $40,000in cash.


DeFuniak Springs cousins


arrested for stealing copper


Last week the Walton
County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) arrested Doug-
las Elliot, 17, of DeFuniak
Springs Fla., on grand theft
charges. His cousin, Patrick
Edenfield, 31, of DeFuniak
Springs, Fla., was arrested
Dec. 21 on similar charges.

The WCSO investigation
began Nov. 30 after investi-
gators received allegations
that two men stole approxi-
mately 30 pounds of copper
valued at approximately
$495 from a Mossy Head


auto parts business.
The investigation re-
vealed that Elliot and Eden-
field allegedly stole the cop-
per the evening of Nov. 29
after selling approximately
29 pounds of copper to the
salvage yard earlier that
day.
Elliot and Edenfield were
identified as suspects after
a review of security equip-
ment. Investigators deter-
mined that Edenfield alleg-
edly cut the security camera
power cable during the inci-
dent causing the video im-


age to cease.

Edenfield was arrested
at the Walton County Jail
where he was serving a sen-
tence for other crimes. He
was charged with one count
of grand theft, a third-de-
gree felony; one count of
burglary, a third-degree
felony; and one count of
criminal mischief, a second-
degree misdemeanor. Elliot
was charged one count of
grand theft and one count of
burglary, both third-degree
felonies.


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) is mak-
ing public notification that
Albert Glenn Pope, 57, of
8346 U.S. 90 West #208E
in DeFuniak Springs, Fla.,

775.
There are currently 126
registered sexual offenders/
POPE predators living in Walton
County. The WCSO con-
ducts monthly- residence

ing the registration require-
ment of offenders and pred-
ators to report any change
in permanent or temporary
address within 48 hours of
any change.

Approximately 150
brave swimmers took to
the Gulf of Mexico, on
Sunday morning. Jan.
1, in what has become a
new years day tradition
in south Walton County.
The annual Polar Bear
Plunge sponsored by Wa-
terColor Inn and Resort
invites both locals and
visitors alike to start out
the new year by taking
an early morning swim.
One of those swimmers,
along with several of
her South Walton High
School friends, was Alli-
son Stroop.
"I wanted to start off
the new year with some-
thing fun and something I


could do with my friends,"
said Stroop. "This is my
second time taking the
plunge. it was great."
This year swimmers
were fortunate to have
very nice weather com-
pared to last year. Tem-
peratures were in the 50s
by swim time and reached
70 degrees by noon. Last
year the temperature was
in the low 40s with a stiff
breeze.
"What a great and per-
fect way to start out the
new year," said Water-
Color Director of Sales
and Marketing Jennifer
Williams. "There is just
something about dousing
oneself in the beautiful
water of the Gulf of Mexi-
co on New Year's day."


APPROXIMATELY 150 BRAVE SOULS took the plunge.

Youth ambassadors

share Christmas

and holiday cheer


The holiday season pro-
vided many occasions for the
local youth ambassadors to
make new friends and enjoy
Christmas traditions. One
Sunday afternoon, beauty
queens of all ages enjoyed
an afternoon at the Stanley
House Assisted Living Fa-
cility. In addition to singing
Christmas carols with the
people of Stanley House, the
group handed out Christ-
mas cards and visited with
others in their rooms.

The youth ambassador
group also traveled to south
Walton to try their talent

with ice skates. After an ex-
hilarating time at the Bay-
towne Wharf rink, the lo-
cal beauty queens and king
shared the joy of Christmas
with the seniors of Crystal
Bay Living Facility at San
Destin.
"Jingle Bell Rock" and
"Frosty the Snowman" were
favorites for both the youth
ambassadors and the resi-
dents of Crystal Bay as they
enjoyed Christmas music to-
gether. As the young people
were leaving, they promised
(in the words of Frosty) they
would "be back again some
day."


LOCAL YOUTH AMBASSADORS enjoy sharing Christmas carols with the residents of Stanley House.


DURING A RECENT HOLIDAY TRIP to south Walton, local beauty title holders pose
for a picture on the ice.

Dear Auntie Em,


COMMUNITY CALENDAR


BINGO EVERY SUNDAY at the VFW: Quarter games at noon; early birds at 1 p.m.
Regular session at 2 p.m. For more information call (850) 892-3539.


Dear Auntie Em,

With the start of the
new year, I am faced with
a conundrum that has been
building the last few years
between my husband and I.
We have been a happily
married couple for many
years with two healthy
kids. Recently, though, it
has come to our attention
in many different ways that
our health is failing unless
we become more proactive.-
I am concerned, not only for
myself, but for my husband
and our family. Recent med-
ical exams have uncovered
cholesterol and heart issues
for both of us. We are both
overweight and get no ex-
ercise except to change the
TV channel with the remote
up until a few weeks ago. I
started watching what I ate.
I started walking and fol-
lowing our physicians rec-
ommendations.
My beloved husband in
the meantime has been
bringing home our favor-
ite treats, and I just found
a stash of fast food wrap-
pers in his truck. It's like he
wants to sabotage me and
us. We have even had a few
arguments over it and that
is something we rarely do. I
am not only concerned now
about our health, but the
health of our relationship.
I'm at my wits' end. Any
advice?

Fast food in Freeport

Dear Fast,

Your husband may be
having some insecurities of
his own. It's not unusual for
one partner to try and sabo-
tage another. They become
frightened and their insecu-


rities over looks and affec-
tion get the best of them. If
only he feared not growing
old enough to see his grand
kids as much as he fears the
changes you are trying to
make in your life, for both of
you. Some people are much
more frightened by change
than any threat to the fu-
ture. Even more afraid of it
then death itself.
What can you do? You can
reassure him you are in this
together. That you love him
and that you are doing this
not to look different, but to
ensure that your children
get to spend a long and hap-
py life with their parents'
involvement, including get-
ting lots of grand-kid time.
Smaller pants sizes and
lower cholesterol numbers
are great by-products of this
adventure you can embark
on, together.
If he cannot find the
strength or resolve to join
you or another program that
will improve his health, you
might have to go it alone
(just the health improve-
ments). Often, one can lead
by example while supplying
confidence to those around
them. You also have the
knowledge that even if he
doesn't join you, you have
done everything possible to
enhance your life and the life
of your children, by sticking
around as long as possible.
In the end, all we can ever
truly do is lead by example
and take the best care pos-
sible of ourselves, whether
those we love choose to join
us or not is their choice and
the only choices we can make
are for ourselves. Don't push
it on him, but do everything
in your power to take care of
yourself. Good luck and God
bless.

Another Brick in the Wall

By Ronnie McBrayer


Janet Hagberg was the
first person who defined
the experience for me. I had
lived through it, but I didn't
know what to call it. In a
book entitled, "The Critical
Journey," Janet called the
experience, simply, "The
Wall." My summary goes
like this.
Many people begin their
walk of faith, and every-
thing goes as they expected.
Out of genuine conviction,
they attend church, learn
from the Scriptures, volun-
teer, serve, give, and be-
come "productive, commit-
ted, faithful, Christians"
(whatever that exactly
means, who knows?). But
somewhere along the way
things go wrong. Terribly
wrong.
The orderly, stalwart
faith that used to "work"


for these true believers be-
comes a muddled mess. Yes,
they once taught Sunday
school, sang in the choir,
chaperoned the youth group,
chaired the. Stewardship
Committee, and had bullet-
proof answers to all ques-
tions of faith. But then, all at
once or over an extension of
time, their faith splintered
into a million tiny pieces.
The woman, who was
taught that living a godly
life would protect her mar-
riage, goes through a di-
vorce. The church to which
a pastor gave his best years,
his heart and soul, fires him
because of some petty trans-
gression or because he didn't
go visit a prominent church
member who was in the hos-
pital with the gout. A child
falls deathly ill and heaven
seems silent as a stone, all


while the godly parents pray
for a miracle. A husband/fa-
ther dies, leaving behind a
young wife and even younger
children. An accident leaves
the once healthy college stu-
dent broken and mutilated,
physically and spiritually.
The circumstances come
in variegated form, but the
impact is the same. It is
more than a crisis of faith,
more than theological bump
in the road; these are an un-
raveling that robs people of
their confidence and com-
fort. The once unshakable
believer descends down-
ward into the blackness of
doubt, what Saint John of
the Cross called "the Dark
Night of the Soul."
Adding insult to injury,
sometimes the only thing
the church or we ministe-
rial types can say in those


moments is, "Why don't you
pray more? Just believe. Let
go and let God. Confess your
sin. Try harder." Not only is
this insensitive, asinine ad-
vice, it simply won't work.
Those who have hit "The
Wall" feel so lost and adrift,
so dismantled at their very
core, that to keep doing what
they were doing only with
more enthusiastic dedica-
tion is impossible.
Like a bug striking a
windshield, a sledgeham-
mer falling on clods of dirt,
or a ball sent through a bay
window, "The Wall" breaks
faith and people apart. I
wish it were different. I wish
such pain could be avoided.
I wish there was a way to
get over, under, or around
these types of experiences,
but if you live long enough,
you will feel your faith being


smashed and shattered. The
only question left is. "What
will come out of the splin-
tered and scattered pieces?"
Here is your choice: You
can harden your heart and
sweep the shards of your
faith into the dustpan, giv-
ing up on faith and God
completely; or you can pick
up the broken pieces, with
bloody hands and heart,
and reassemble faith on the
other side of doubt.
No, it won't be the same
faith youi once had; rather, it
will be dramatically differ-
ent. It won't be an improved
or updated version of the be-
liefs you formerly held; no,
it will be a new construction
altogether. This reassem-
bled faith will not provide
you with all the answers to
all your questions; instead,
it will help you to see the


world, God, and people dif-
ferently. Faith on the other
side of "The Wall" will not
take you back to where you
were; it will move you for-
ward to where you must be.
So. if you find yourself
crushed against what feels
like the concrete and steel
of disbelief, with not a drop
of faith left in you, I under-
stand. Don't throw it all
away just yet. In the break-
ing, you might find that
faith has a new beginning.

Freeport Boys Post 3-1 Mark in Tourney



Paxton Boys Earn Fourth Place Finish


By PATRICK CASEY and
REID TUCKER
The 17th annual Hilton
Sandestin Beach Basket-
ball Blowout gdt underway
last week in Freeport as 16
schools competed for the
boys title of the four-day
event. All five members of
the Area 5 took part in the
event with the local teams
posting a 3-2 mark on the
first day of competition.
South Walton opened the
tournament with a hard
fought 52-49 overtime victo-
ry over Nashville Christian
as Edward Howard led the
squad with 25 points, includ-
ing six shots from behind the
three-point line. South Wal-
ton trailed 20-10 after one
quarter of play and for most
of the game until a rally in
the fourth quarter put them
ahead. The Seahawks led
46-40 in the final seconds
only to have the Eagles hit
a pair of three-point shots to
tie the game. South Walton
was able to pull away in the
overtime period as Will Cole
hit 4-of-6 shots from the
free throw line and Shafer
Martin added a key basket
for the Seahawks' (8-4) first
victory in seven tries in the
event.
Ponce de Leon faced off
against Cookeville in the
second game of the day with
the Cavaliers running off to
a 54-13 lead at the half. The
Pirates were unable to slow
the pace as the Tennessee
team played deep into the
bench on the way to a 75-
23 victory that dropped the
Pirates to 0-10 on the year.
The Pirates were led by Ja-
son DePauw's seven points.
Walton faced off with St.
Paul's in the fourth game of
the day as the Braves strug-
gled with ice-cold shooting
in falling behind 15-8 after
eight minutes of play. The
Braves went over half of
the second quarter without
a basket as the Saints in-
creased their lead to 26-12
at halftime. The lead went
from 14 to 21 points after
three quarters of play as the
Braves continued to strug-
gle to make shots, trailing
46-25 entering the fourth
quarter. Ken Randolph led
Walton with 13 points while
DeShun Tucker added 10 as
the Braves dropped to 5-7
overall and into the consola-
tion bracket.
The first night of the tour-
nament also saw a catfight
between Paxton's Bobcats
and the Wildcats of White
Plains, with the local team
coming out the winner at
64-46. Three Paxton play-
ers got in triple digits, with
Chad Zessin leading the
way with 19 points on the
night, followed by Dustin
Geohagan's nothing-but-3s
16 points and Mason Mc-
Cormick's steady inside-
work for 13 points. Paxton
led by six through most of
the first half, to finish 24-18
at halftime, and were ahead
44-33 after an 8-2 scoring
run late in the third quar-
ter. The Bobcats contin-
ued to pile on the pressure
in the fourth despite good
perimeter shooting from
White Plains' Dyland Ran-
dall and Chris Major, who
finished the night with 15
points and 11 points, respec-
tively. However, breakaway
lay-ups on several posses-
sions soon gave Paxton the
18-point win and a ticket to
the next day's game.
Freeport devastated Oli-
ver Springs 79-44 in the top
billing of the tournament's
opening day. Gabe Moore
turned in an explosive per-
formance for the Bulldogs,
shutting down the Bobcats
with a trio of back-to-back
dunks in the fourth quar-
ter. While Moore scored 20
points, the overall Freeport
leading scorer was Austin
Woodard, who scored 26 on


a smattering of field goals of
all ranges plus a 7-for-9 re-
cord from the stripe. Caleb
Piasecki and Collin Myrick
also contributed in a big way
to the win, posting scores of
16 and 15 points, respective-
ly. The Bulldogs were never
behind in the contest up 20
at halftime and 60-43 at the
end of the third and out-
scored Oliver Springs 19-10
in the final quarter, with six
of those points coming via
Moore's backboard shaking
slams.
Day 2 of the event saw
two Area 5 teams eliminat-
ed while two others lost for
the first time. Ponce de Leon
tried to rebound after a
tough first day as they faced
off with Oliver Springs in a
consolation bracket game.
The Pirates fell behind early
but closed the first half with
six straight points to cut the
deficit to 26-16 at the half.
That was as close as the
Holmes County team would
get as the Bobcats came out
hot in the third quarter and
ran the lead to 42-30 before
exploding for 21 points in
the final quarter to close out
the contest with a 63-34 vic-
tory. Alex Price and Crete
Zorn scored seven points
apiece for the Pirates to lead
the squad but PDL could not
overcome 40 turnovers and
12-of-47 shooting from the
field as they were bounced
from the field with their sec-
ond loss in the event. The
Pirates are 0-11 so far this
season.
Walton was the next
squad to go as the Braves fell
way behind in their game
with Glencoe only to rally
within three points in the
final 90 seconds before suc-
cumbing 66-61. The Braves
put three players in double
figures as DeShun Tucker
scored 21 points with Ken
Randolph scoring 11 and
Tray Williams 10. Glencoe
used the three-point shot to
stay in front as they canned
10 shots from behind the
arc to answer every Walton
challenge. The Braves again
struggled with their shoot-
ing in the first half and ex-
ited the event with a season
record of 5-8 heading into
the second half of the sea-
son.
Paxton and South Walton
faced off against each other
in a winner's bracket con-
test as the Bobcats held the
Seahawks scoreless from
the field for more than six
minutes of the first quarter
while building a 21-6 lead.
South Walton would never
recover fully as they got
within 24-19 before the Bob-
cats went on a run to close
the half with seven straight
points for a 31-19 lead, at
the break. The Bobcats got
22 points from Chad Zessin
as he had a big night with
rebounds and blocked shots
while the Seahawks strug-
gled to connect from out-
side. Edward Howard had
16 points for South Wal-
ton but no other Seahawks
player was able to put up
more than six points in the
contest. Marcus Bradley tal-
lied 13 points while Mason
McCormick had 12 to pro-
vide more firepower for the
Bobcats as they moved into
the semi-final round. Pax-
ton mov4 to 11-2 with the
win while South Walton fell
to 8-5.
The nightcap featured
Freeport against Cookev-
ille as the game opened at
the pace of a track meet.
The Cavaliers zipped to a
22-18 lead after the first
eight minutes of play as the
visiting squad used back-
door cuts to burn the Bull-
dogs for baskets for a good
part of the first half. Austin
Woodard got the home team
going with a pair of three-
point shots in the first half
while contributing to several


steals only to see the Cava-
liers stretch the lead to 40-
28 at the half. The Bulldogs
trimmed the lead to 48-42
after three quarters as the
team got hot from behind the
arc, hitting four shots from
long range to climb back in
the game. The Cavaliers got
back on track in the fourth
quarter, going back inside
for some easy baskets as
they broke Freeport's pres-
sure and held on for a 64-59
victory. The Bulldogs, who
dressed only seven players
for the game, played their
five starters for the entire
contest, getting four players
into double figures. Collin
Myrick led the way with 18
points while Austin Woo-
dard scored 15 with Caleb
Piasecki and Gabe Moore
adding 12 apiece. The loss
dropped the Bulldogs to 8-5
on the year.
The third day of the event
saw Freeport have to face
off with county rival South
Walton in an early morn-
ing contest while Paxton
moved into the semi-final
round with a game against
Cookeville.
South Walton may have
been better off to have
missed the alarm clock as
the Bulldogs got going with
a huge third quarter to blow
open a 45-31 halftime lead.
Freeport posted a 32-4 mar-
gin over the eight minutes
of the third quarter as Aus-
tin Woodard scored 18 of his
35 points during that span.
The Bulldogs avenged an
81-76 overtime loss at South
Walton in November with
an offensive performance
that will be tough to match
the rest of the season. Gabe
Moore added 18 points with
Myrick chipping in 16 as the
home team took the first of
two meetings in Freeport
87-39. Edward Howard had
15 points for South Walton
as the Seahawks dropped to
.8-6 overall and exited the
tournament with a 1-2 re-
cord.
Paxton faced Cookeville's
methodical half-court of-
fense in a winner's bracket
contest as the Cavaliers
held a 14-11 lead over the
Bobcats after one quarter
of play. Neither team shot
the ball extremely well in
the first half of play as both
teams shut down the lane
and gobbled up defensive
rebounds as the Tennes-
see squad took a 21-17 ad-
vantage to the locker room.
The Cavaliers posted a 13-6
scoring advantage in the
third quarter as the Bobcats
struggled to find ways to at-
tack Cookeville on offense.
Both teams spent a good part
of the fourth quarter at the
free throw line but Paxton
was unable to rally for the
win as Cookeville moved on


with a 51-35 victory. Chad
Zessin scored 14 points and
Mason McCormick added 10
points in the loss.
Freeport and Paxton
were the only two Area 5
teams to make it to the final
day. Freeport senior Collin
Myrick drilled a three-point
shot to tie Lakeshore at the
end of regulation and the
Bulldogs took advantage of
a technical foul that also got
Titans coach Steve Alfonso
ejected from the contest as
the host squad finished the
event with a 3-1 record as
they grabbed a 78-70 over-
time win. Myrick led four
players in double figures
with 22 points while Caleb
Piasecki scored 19. Austin
Woodard and Gabe Moore
added 15 points apiece as
the Bulldogs survived a
short bench to finish in fifth
place. The Bulldogs finished
in fifth place for the first
time since 1997 and earned
a finish higher than sixth
place for the first time since
the 2007 season. Austin
Woodard was named to the
all-tournament team for the
Bulldogs.
Paxton finished the tour-
nament with a 2-2 record as
the Bobcats fell to St. Paul's
62-49 in the third place
game. The northern Walton
County school got 16 points
from Dustin Geoghagan but
struggled with the physical
squad as the Saints had six
seniors that pounded the
glass while freshman Greg
White scored 30 points.
White lit up the three-point
line as the Saints hit 11
shots from behind the arc
in building a 35-25 lead at
halftime. Mason McCormick
and Chad Zessin added 10
points each in the loss. Zes-
sin earned all-tournament
honors for the Bobcats.
Paxton ends the first half
of their season with an 11-4
mark as the Bobcats prepare
for a key district showdown
with Malone in Paxton on
Jan. 10.
Cookeville, a school from
Tennessee, won the boys
championship with a 70-
64 victory over Crestview
in the championship game.
The two schools were two of
the largest in the field based
on student population. The
tournament featured some
very good crowds with the
girls drawing especially well
at the middle school on the
opening day of the event.

DID YOU KNOW?

5 Sports Facts

1. With Sunday's victory, the Miami Dolphins tied the
NFL record for most wins after a 0-7 start. The Dolphins
finished the year with six wins and joined the 1978 St. Lou-
is Cardinals and 1998 Washington Redskins as the only
teams in NFL history to accomplish this feat.

2. FSUs 18 points in their victory over Notre Dame are
the fewest in a bowl win by the Seminoles since a 10-2 vic-
tory in the Cotton Bowl over Texas A&M in 1992. FSU is
8-0-2 all-time in Orlando.

3. The Philadelphia Eagles own a perfect 9-0 record
against the New York Jets all-time, which is the best unde-
feated mark between two teams in NFL history.

4. Paxton is 14-0 versus South Walton in boys basketball
after last week's 58-40 victory over the Seahawks in the
Hilton Sandestin Beach Basketball Blowout in Freeport.
The game was the first time the two teams have ever met
on a neutral floor.

5. Paxton defeated the Ponce de Leon girls 49-36 on Fri-
day in the first regular season meeting between the two
schools since January 2003. The two squads had split the
last 12 meetings though Paxton now owns an 18-6 lead in
the series dating back to the 1992-93 season after their 49-
36 win over the Pirates.

turnovers from the Holmes
County squad in the first
half and got five puint i fr.'m
Bethany Neale off the bench
to take a 23-20 lead into the
locker room.
Rebecca Ferreira scored
all nine points 'fr Paxton
in the third -uarter as her
shots from behind the arc
accounted for all the Bob-
cats points as they pushed
the lead to 32-24 after 24
minutes of play.
Paxton senior Alys.a Du-
pree then put the dagger in
the Pirates with eight of her
14 points in the final quarter
as the Bobcats celebrated a
49-36 victory in their final
game of 2011.
Ferreira led the Walton
County squad with 15 points
and Emily Murray scored 10
as Paxton improved to 12-3
on the year.
The Pirates, which suf-
fered an uncharacteristic
30 turnovers, got 13 points
from Jasmine Flock and
Ashley Harper but could not
overcome Paxton's defensive
play as ball-handling limit-
ed PDL's opportunities from
the floor. Ponce de Leon hit
only 14-or-41 shots from the
field compared to Paxton's
16-of-37 shooting.
PDL posted a 1-2 mark
in the tournament to fall to
13-2 overall this season.
The road to the Paxton and
Ponce's meeting was a di-
chotomous one, with the
Lady Cats and Lady Pirates
surging forward until they
encountered the eventual
first-and-second-place fin-
ishers, Tennessee's Cookev-
ille and the White Plains
squad from Alabama. The
other two coverage-area
teams in the girls' bracket,
those of Walton and Free-
port, struggled early and fell
in two games before getting
the chance to contest for
even the consolation cham-
pionship. Nevertheless, the
three-day girls' tournament
was filled with some inter-
esting and close matchups.

.:v' the 20l11 tournament on
Wedne,-".-y with a close 50-
44 loss to Cookeville. despite
a -22- Walton lead at the
half. Both teams had their
worst quarters by far in the
third, with Cookeville scor-
ing nine points and Walton
just six.
However. Cookeville's
Hannah Goolsby, who led
all scorers with 24 pint:.
turned up the heat to score
eight points on her own
in the fourth quarter and
she was joined by Sydney
Marek with another eight
points. Taliah Moore (16
points) scored five points for
the Lady Braves to tie the
game up at 41-all with 2:48
to go. A late-game surge
from Goolsby and others
pushed Cookville ahead by
six points with less than a
minute to play, giving the
Tennessee team the edge.
Next up on Wednesday af-
ternoon was Ponce de Leon's
introductory game, wherein
the Lady Pirates bounced
Oliver Springs 55-36. Ponce
only held close leads of 14-9,
19-18 and 32-26 through the
first three quarters but with
JoJo Carlson, Deliah Bass
and Ashley Harper each
scoring seven points apiece,
the Lady Pirates could do
nought else but take the
win.
Paxton's girls had a simi-
larly easy run through their
first opponent, Glencoe, fell-
ing the Yellow Jackets 64-
42 without much apparent
effort. With 4:22 left in the
third quarter, for example,
the Lady Cats already had
a convincing 40-19 lead. Al-
yssa Dupree was a force for
Paxton, scoring 22 points, 14
more than the highest-scor-
ing Glencoe player, Laura
Poovey.
The Lady Cats and the
Yellow Jackets each added
18 points to their scores in
the fourth quarter, but the
push came too late for Glen-
coe, who were moved into
the losers' bracket with the
22-point loss.
Freeport's Wednesday
game against White Plains
ended almost just as badly
as Paxton's went well, as the
Lady Bulldogs fell 47-26 to
the Wildcats. Freeport nev-
er challenged White Plains
from the outset, as the Ala-
bama team quickly ran up a
13-4 lead by the end of the
first quarter, a deficit that
was extended to 22-10 at the
half and 32-18 by the end of
three quarters of play.
Of Freeport's players only
Laura Hamm got into double
digits, and with 14 points to
her credit was actually the
game's leading scorer. How-
ever, her solid performance
was overwhelmed by the
White Plains squad, which
had every player but one on
its roster to score at least
one point, with the leaders
being Jordan Coleman (11
points) and Olivia Taylor
(10 points).
Thursday's games ended
in losses for all four local
teams, though this resulted
in the exciting Friday con-
test for third place between
Ponce de Leon and Paxton.


For Walton and Freeport
though, the second day of
the girl]' tournament proved
even more ch:ild-nging than
the first.
The Lady Br\cave trailed
the Bobcats in the first two
quarters but remained in
-triking distance and even-
tually tied the eime at 35-all
with 2:50 to go in the fourth
quarter. However, Oliver
Springs capitalized on some
wide shots from Gillian In-
finger and Taliah Moore
to run up a five-point lead
from which Walton could
not recover in the short time
remaining. Moore was Wal-
ton's top scorer in the game,
contributing 14 points in the
close 40-35 loss.
Freeport, on the other
hand, had another double-
digit loss, this time to Glen-
coe, who dropped the Lady
Bulldogs 49-27. The' first
quarter looked to tell a dif-
ferent story, as Ham and
Mary Kate Myrick combined
for 14 points to trail Glencoe
by just two points. How-
ever, Glencoe outpointed
Freeport 19-9 in the second
quarter and the Lady Bull-
dogs scored just four points
in the final two periods com-
bined.
The Alabama team, with
mostly non-starters on the
floor, went up 20-plus points
over Freeport in the fourth
quarter despite a slew of
missed shots from the floor
and stripe alike. Glencoe
took the 22-point win after a
solitary 2-pointer from Jor-
dan Sims in the last minute
of play.
The last two games of
Thursday night saw Ponce
de Leon lose its first game
of the '11-'12 season by fall-
ing 40-31 to Cookeville, the
eventual champion. PDL's
Jasmine Flock had an un-
characteristically slow-
shooting night, scoring just
two points from the floor,
and that in the first quar-
ter, with a total of only sev-
en points by the end of the


game. The rest of the Lady
Pirates had a hard time with
the pressure of Cookeville
and none of the Ponce play-
ers got into double digits
while the Cavaliers' trio of
Abby Collins, Goolsby and
Marek scored 15, 11 and 10,
respectively.
Harper opened up in the
fourth quarter with a 3 and
a 2 in her only scores since
the first quarter to make it
36-31 Cookeville with 1:16
to go. However, consecutive
2-pointers from the lane by
Marek staved off the PDL
comeback and helped give
the Cavaliers the nine-point
advantage for the win.
Paxton's game against
White Plains went into
overtime and was, in many
ways. the closest game of
the entire girls' tournament.
Paxton had a tenuous 33-:0(
lead at the start of the third
quarter as \Whit Plains be-
gan to rally. The Wildcats
cut the lead on Paxton to
33-32 with 2:56 to go and
turned that into a two-point
lead going into the fourth.
The fourth quarter was a
flurry of lead changes and
tie-scores that culminated
in a 42-all score after Pax-
ton's Dupree made both
shots from the free-throw
line with 2:48 to go. Neither
team could score in the time
remaining, which led to the
overtime situation that fa-
vored White Plains.
The Wildcats' Coleman
drained a 3 at the beginning
of the short period though
so did Paxton's Rebecca Fer-
reira. From there out both
squads took turns fouling
and getting fouled, with
White Plains coming out
on the better end of the ex-
change, as the Wildcats had
a 48-46 lead with 20 seconds
left in the game. Amber
Greenwood, who had not
scored in the entire game,
was fouled in the final nine
seconds and went 1-for-2 at
the stripe to seal the deal on
the 49-46 win over Paxton.

misdemeanor or felony pen-
alties associated with it
upon conviction, depending
on the type of activity, un-
less the activity is one au-
thorized by state law or one
that is set forth as an excep-
tion to the law.
Among the exceptions
from prohibitions on gam-
bling are the Florida Lottery
and other state or national
lotteries not in violation of
state law.
Another instance of au-
thorized gambling, a.k.a.
"gaming" is an April 7, 2010,
agreement or "compact"
with the Seminole Tribe of
Florida. The compact autho-
rized slot machines at seven
casinos in the state to be
operated by the tribe, along
with "banked card games" at
five of those facilities. These
are card games in which the
facility operator pays win-
ners, collects from losers, or
establishes a bank against
which game participants
play. The Seminole casinos
are located from Tampa
south.
In addition, Florida law
authorizes state-licensed
pari-mutuel facilities such
as race tracks and jai-alai
facilities to operate card
rooms for poker and/or dom-


inoes as long as those games
are played "in a non-bank-
ing manner," meaning that
participants play aiain-t
each other and not against
the "house" or card room op-
erator.
Also, in 2006, certain li-
censed pari-mutuel facilities
were authorized, when ap-
proved by voters in a county-
wide referendum, to bring in
slot machines for their cus-
tomers. Currently five pari-
mutuel facilities, located at
Hallandale Beach, Pompano
Beach, Miami Gardens, and
Flagler Beach, operate slot
machines, and each of these
runs a card room as well. In
2012 and 2013, a pari-mutu-
el facility at Hialeah and an
additional one at Miami are
scheduled to add slot ma-
chines. Also, closer to home,
the Washington County
Kennel Club recently re-
ceived county commission
approval to place a proposi-
tion on the Jan. 31 Repub-
lican Presidential Primary
ballot whereby county vot-
ers are to decide on the use
of slot machines at the Ebro
Greyhound Park.

Perfect Florida Pan-

annual celebration of the
founding of Walton County.
Guests again flocked to
the Eastern Lake home of
Lane and Brenda Rees on
Jan. 29, gathering on their
lakefront deck for a sunset
toast in honor of the occa-
sion. Refreshments were
served inside.
Walton County historian
Brenda Rees started the an-
nual tradition in 2004 as
a countdown to the 200th
anniversary of the county's
founding, which will take
place in 2024.
One of the state's oldest
counties, Walton County
was the eighth county to be
created in the state. It was
named for George Walton
Jr., secretary of the Terri-
tory of West Florida from
1P21 to 1826 and later act-
ing governor for the state
of Florida. Walton was the
son of George Walton Sr., a
signer of the Declaration of
Independence. The junior
George Walton's daughter
was Octavia Walton LeVert.
Brenda Rees describes her
as "the most famous belle
that you've never heard of."
While not well known today.
LeVert was renowned as a

CVHN gets $10,000 for dental clinic


Ryan Jumonville, a resi-
dent of Destin, just gave the
kids of Walton and Okaloosa
County Florida something to
smile about. Jumonville do-
nated $10,000 to Children's
Volunteer Health Network
(CVHN) as they expand
their outreach to uninsured
and underinsured children
needing restorative dental
care by turning an existing
building into a three-chair
dental clinic. The 501(c)3 or-
ganization is in the midst of
a campaign to secure funds


for ongoing operating ex-
penses to sustain the clinic
as well as other CVHN pro-
grams.
Jumonville's cousin, Kris
"The Kid" Jumqnville, lost a
battle with Cystic Fibrosis a
few years ago. His life will
be honored as his name is
displayed permanently in-
side the clinic.
Jumonville said, "I
worked with Kris at Louisi-
ana Dental Plan in the early
'90s. He would be proud to
be a part of the CVHN den-


tal clinic. I am proud to be
a part of this project and I
am truly excited for the un-
insured and underinsured
kids of Walton and Okaloosa
County."
CVHN's Executive Direc-
tor, Zach Billingsley said,
"The severity of cases we
have seen on our Mobile
Dental Bus over the past
few years has been over-
whelming and sad to wit-
ness. More than 65 percent
of the children we examine
on the bus have decay re-


quiring prompt restorative
dental care. The new clinic
will focus on these severe
cases, allowing our Mobile
Dental Bus to focus on pre-
ventative treatments and
visit more grades and more
schools in the future. This
generous donation from Mr.
Jumonville will allow us to
cover a significant amount of
expense related to the clinic
and we are very pleased to
provide an opportunity to
further his cousin's legacy."

OLD FRIENDS Harris Sonnenberg (left) and Bill Addington greet during Walton Coun-
ty Snowbird membership registration on Jan. 2.



WltonD CounTty SDowbird Nws


Oh, what a happy day
was Jan. 2! That's when 624
snowbirds congregated to
sign cards that swelled the
Walton County Snowbird
Club membership roster to
nearly 1,000. Club officers,
including its president, Bon-
nie Schwichtenberg and reg-
istration chairman, Mark
Beckman, were pleased with
the turnout which nearly
matched last year's despite
occurring on a national holi-
day. Membership registra-
tion goes beyond enrolling,
relates Brenda Mahar who
with Carol and Bill Adding-
ton signed up members for
the Snowbird Singers, "It
is more qf a reunion; there's
a lot of catching up to do."
Gigi Hawkins from Lake
Isabella, Mich. signed up for
the eighth consecutive year
and will focus on golfing and
euchre this year. Betty and
Ralph Donavan of Shelby,
Mich. signed on for dancing
classes, golf, and the Snow-
bird Singers. Hawkins and
the Donavans chose from
36 programs offered free of
charge to members. Mem-
bership registration contin-
ues Monday mornings be-
tween 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. at
Faith Assembly Fellowship
Hall located at 306 South
Geronimo Street in Mira-
mar Beach. Annual cost, $8.
Paul Smithers reports
making headway in his ef-
fort to form a basketball
group. He says the format
will be half court, three-on-
three style play. In typi-
cal snowbird fashion, he
expects a lot of flexibility,
though. Players may start
out with one on one or two
on two, but whatever works
is okay so long as it involves
a ball and a hoop. Pro-
spective players can reach
Smithers at PCSNAS@aol.
com.
Play tennis? If the an-
swer is yes, then grab your
racket and head for Main-
sail on Thursday mornings,
9 a.m. -12 p.m. There you
will find snowbirds of vary-
ing skill levels waiting to
join you in a match. To dis-

Bicyclists will find many
interesting trails when they
join up with others who en-
joy gadding about the Em-
erald Coast on two wheels
instead of the four we more
sedentary types prefer. For
the bikeless budget minded,
group leader Barbara Kim-
ball advises checking out
the thrift shops (Goodwill,
Caring and Sharing, etc.)
for a dependable used bike
that can be re-donated at
the end of the season. Af-
ter a reflective pause, she
added -check area police
departments for auction
dates. For details on how
to hook up with the approxi-
mately 60 snowbirds in the
biking group, contact Ms.
Kimball at sigmacats@aol.

Chamber First


Friday Breakfast


January 6


BILL (


proposes to expand "limited
gambling," including slot
machines, to "destination
resorts" in the state. H487,
an identical companion
bill, was filed in the Florida
House of Representatives on
the same date.
The legislation would re-
move the Division of Pari-
mutuel Wagering from the
state Department of Busi-
ness and Professional Regu-
lation, would set up a state
Department of Gaming
Control, and would create a
State Gaming Commission
to head up that department.
The State Gaming Commis-
sion would be empowered to
authorize limited gambling
at up to three destination
resorts.
A destination resort is,
according to the bill's defini-
tion, "a mixed-use develop-
ment consisting of a com-
bination of various tourism

amenities and facilities, in-
cluding, but not limited to,
hotels, villas, restaurants,
limited gambling facilities,
convention facilities, at-
tractions, entertainment fa-
cilities, service centers, and
shopping centers."
"Limited gambling," as
defined in the bill, would in-
clude not only slot machines
but games not authorized
for the Seminole casinos,
among these roulette and
craps. The State Gaming
Commission would also
have the authority to allow
any other game of chance or
wagering at its discretion at
the destination resorts for.
which it would license lim-
ited gambling.
The commission would
accept applications for the
licensing of destination re-
sorts, with a nonrefund-
able application fee of $1
million to accompany each


application. Up to three
destination resorts, offering
limited gambling, would be
licensed.
Applicants would be re-
quired to demonstrate that
they had received "con-
ceptual approval from the
municipality and county in
which the resort will be lo-
cated." Also, the State Gam-
ing Commission would be
prohibited from awarding a
license for limited gambling
in any county where voters
had not approved slot ma-
chines or limited gambling
in a countywide referen-
dum.
.The proposed legislation
provides for the State Gam-
ing Commission to "select
from competing applicants
the applicant that best
serves the interests of the
residents of Florida, based
on the potential for econom-
ic development presented by


the applicant's proposed in-
vestment in infrastructure,
such as hotels and other
nongaming entertainment
facilities, and the applicant's
ability to maximize revenue

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY. JANUARY 5.2012


Art C1ips


It seems the red, silver and blue Christmas or-
naments have just been taken off the tree, when we
start to see colors of green, purple and gold. That's
right, it's time for carnival season and Mardi
Gras, all across the South.


No sooner have the
trees been dragged out to
the curb for trash pickup,
when masks, boas and the
official Mardi Gras flags
are replacing the holiday
wreaths, lights and rib-
bons. It is the one time of
the year when the South
really shines and millions
of tourists bring in hun-
dreds of millions of dollars
into the local economies of
cities like Pensacola, New
Orleans, Mobile and Pan-
ama City Beach.
What began in the
1800s in Mobile and New
Orleans has now spread
throughout Florida, Mis-
sissippi and Texas, with
hundreds of small towns
and organizations putting
on the colors of carnival,
and taking advantage of
"letting it all go!" It is the
time of the year when cotil-
lions, colorful balls, elabo-
rate parades and parties
are "the" place to be and
to be seen.
The traditions of Mar-
di Gras run deep in the
roots of the South. From
King Cakes and oversized
beads, to colorful floats
and the kings of carnival,
it is no surprise why mil-
lions make their pilgrim-
age each year to the Gulf
Coast, and make Mardi
Gras their vacation desti-
nation. It also means big
bucks for the hosting cit-
ies, that for many, this is
the biggest money-making
month of the entire year.


The official kick-off for
Mardi Gras is this Sun-
day, and runs until Fat
Tuesday, Feb. 21. With
the beginning of carnival
season around the South,
that means hundreds of
millions of beads will be
thrown, king cakes will be
devoured and floats that
will be covered in glitter
and elaborate costumes
and weighed-down with
tons of trinkets.
Throughout the follow-
ing month, Mardi Gras
will be overtaking the Gulf
Coast. Listed below are
many of those upcoming
parades and host cities:

impact (DRI) documents in
order to proceed with such
an initiative. Brannon com-
mented that "extensive pub-
lic process" would have to
take place with the county
in order for such a plan to
become a reality.
Undeterred, Harris stat-
ed that she would like the
TDC to be "out front" with
this issue. "I think it will af-
fect the whole county." she
said, adding that the impact
on the "family atmosphere"
that the TDC has been striv-
ing to promote would be un-
desirable.
On Dec. 28 the Sandestin
Owners Association, Inc..
(SOA) sent a notice to mem-
bers stating that on Dec. 15
Tom Becnel, Sandestin Re-
sort operator, had presented
to the association's board
of directors "his interest in
developing a smaller en-
tertainment based gaming
facility" on U.S. 98, imme-
diately west of the Mariott
Courtyard hotel. The notice
connected the concept for
the facility with the destina-
tion resort bill. A link to the
bill was provided for mem-
bers' information.
"He commented that his
interest is aligned with the
homeowners of Sandestin
and that he would only seek
such a license with SOA
support. The board then
voted to organize a 'Town
Hall' style meeting for Mr.
Becnel to present his ideas
directly to Sandestin hom-
eowners," the notice contin-
ued. The time, date, and lo-
cation of the meeting, which
was scheduled for Jan. 10,
was provided.
"We encourage each and
every one of you to partici-
pate, as this decision could
have profound and long-
term effects on the lifestyle
and property values of our
community." the notice
urged. Members were also
requested to contact their
"Association President or
Manager by Jan. 17 to ex-
press your views so that.he
or she can best represent
your interests." It was stat-
ed that the SOA Advisory
Board, comprising neighbor-
hood presidents, would meet
on Jan. 17 "to participate in
an official opinion poll as
to whether or not the SOA
should support Mr. Becnel
in his effort and under what
terms that support should
be given."
Contacted on Dec. 30,
SOA Director of Communi-
cations & Administration
Victoria Klamerus advised
that attendance at the Jan.
10 town hall meeting would
be limited to Sandestin
homeowners and that the
meeting would be closed to
the general public and the
media, due to the informa-
tion to be presented being
very preliminary.
On Dec. 30, after being
contacted and asked if she
could confirm the informa-
tion in the SOA notice re-
garding the Jan. 10 town
hall meeting and Becnel's
Dec. 15 remarks to the SOA
advisory board, Sandestin
Resort spokesperson Laurie
Hobbs confirmed that the
Jan. 10 meeting had been
scheduled. She referred the
other question to Becnel.
Becnel had not contacted
the Herald/Breeze by press
time.

bling expansion bill, was
