Highway 331 Task Force

votes to recommend tax

increase referendum to BCC


By REID TUCKER
The Highway 331 Blue
Ribbon Task Force voted
unanimously to recommend
a voter referendum for a
local sales tax increase,
needed to raise $75 million
for the construction of a
new bridge across Choctaw-
hatchee Bay.
As reported in last week's
edition of this newspaper
and in others, the task force
held off on its recommenda-
tion at the group's previous
meeting on Thursday, Jan.
12. However, after another
session of public comment
and discussion among the
five committee members on
Jan. 19, it was concluded
that the public should vote
to decide whether or not to
support a sales tax increase
of up to 1 percent.
The task force recom-
mended that the referen-
dum contain language lim-
iting the use of sales tax
revenues to paying for the
bridge and also that the tax,
if approved, will irrevoca-


bly expire when the debt is
paid, never to be extended.
Furthermore, the task
force was in favor of advis-
ing the County Commission
to strongly consider tax in-
creases of less than 1 per-
cent should the referendum
pass.
Much discussion at the
last meeting was centered
around whether or not it
was possible to include mul-
tiple options for example,
toll, tax (or how much of
one) or no bridge at all on a
proposed referendum. How-
ever, legal review showed
that state statute stipulates
the exact language of the
referendum include only
a vote for or against a tax.
The other options would re-
quire further referendums,
an action considered cost-
prohibitive as well as pos-
sibly being incompatible
with the timeline laid out by
the Florida Department of
Transportation.
FDOT is set to begin


construction of the shore
go ,.'orc- bridge in 2013 if
Walton County comes up its
share of the money, if not,
DOT will take its money
elsewhere.
Should the referendum,
which required 120 days'
notice, fail to pass when put
to the vote come May, the
County Commissioners can
still vote to support a state-
run toll on the new span of
the bridge, though projec-
tions from the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
show that a $2 or $3 toll
would have to be in place for
at least 30 years to foot the
$75 million bill. By contrast,
County Finance Director
Bill Imfeld's data shows
that a 1-percent local tax op-
tion could raise $12 million
per year, which means a tax
would take approximately
10 years to pay for Walton
County's contribution to
the $177 million project.

DFS City Council


approves new sign

ordinance, city manager


contract and salary


By REID TUCKER
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council unanimously
voted to repeal the current
sign ordinance and to adopt
a new, and heavily revised,
ordinance in its place with
the aim of helping local busi-
nesses.
After several months of
committee review, recom-
mendations to and discus-
sion among the City Council
members, and rounds of pub-


lic comment, the stripped-
down sign ordinance, Ordi-
nance 8.13, passed with a
straight vote at the Council's
Jan. 23 meeting. Though
some of the councilmen ex-
pressed concerns with a few
aspects of the ordinance,
which .removed much of the
regulation regarding the
dimensions, location and
number of signs a business

Paxton Town Council

discusses traffic light,

electronic water meters


By REID TUCKER
Former Paxton Town
Councilman Bill McRae ad-
dressed the sitting Coun-
cil regarding a request for
action to be taken to have
a traffic control device in-
stalled at the intersection of
U.S. 331 and County High-
way 147.
McRae said there have
been several fatalities re-
sulting from traffic acci-
dents at the intersection
within the past few years,
including one in December.
McRae, who tried during his
tenure on the Council to get
a traffic light installed at the
location, ran into a prover-
bial dead end when a traffic
study conducted by the Flor-
ida Department of Transpor-
tation concluded that traffic
on the road was insufficient
to necessitate such a device.
Since the two highways in
question fall under different
governmental authorities,
it was decided that the best
way to get action taken was
to, once again, go to FDOT
for a traffic study in hopes of
determining why the inter-
section is so dangerous.
In light of the pressing


concerns of local residents
and the Council members
themselves, Councilman
Tommy Mathis to make a
motion to have City Attorney
Lori Bytell draft a resolution
to that effect to be submitted
to FDOT. The motion passed
unanimously. Bytell will
also bring the item before
the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners atv
an upcoming meeting, with
the goal of encouraging the
county to draft a similar
resolution.
McRae said it is regretta-
ble that a traffic light could
not have been installed at
the intersection the last time
Paxton tried to go ahead
with the project. Loss of life
could have been avoided
had there been some kind of
traffic control device at the
intersection, he said. He
added that, while studies
can be interpreted any num-
ber of ways to favor a given
outcome, it was impossible
for the DOT to ignore the
fact that people have been
killed.

Walton County man explores

waste disposal alternatives


By JEFFREY PO WELL
As the earth becomes
more populated, land and
natural resources will be-
come harder to come by and
more expensive to attain.
In the United States the
demand for fossil fuels and
alternatives to reducing the
need for landfills are two of
the problems scientists are
working feverishly to alle-
viate. One Walton County
resident feels he has a pos-


sible solution that will help
with both problems.
The system is known as
Hybrid Pyrolytic Gasifica-
tion under pressure. In sim-
ple terms, the process takes
solid waste and subjects it
to intense pressure using
relatively small amounts of
natural gas to produce the
pressure. As a result, carbon
briquets are produced which
can be sold for industrial
use. The process can also be

brid Pyrolytic Gasification system. (Photo by Jeffrey Pow-
ell)


done in county which reduc-
es the need to pick-up and
transfer solid waste to Jack-
son County as it is now done
at the cost of approximately
$1.9 million annually.
"I feel I have found a so-
lution for some of the eco-
nomic burdens we are expe-
riencing in Walton County,"
said Jason O'Daniels while
visiting the DeFuniak Her-
ald offices. "It is time to
think outside of the box and
leave personal agendas by
the wayside. This technol-
ogy is good for the citizens
of the county and the cost
of building and maintaining
the facility would fall on the
company that builds it. That
company will make their
money on the by-products of
the system."
According to O'Daniels
the process can also produce
some of the gases needed to
run the facility.
O'Daniels has contacted
Walton County officials
with his idea and hopes to
maintain an open dialog
with them concerning the
process.
"This interests me on
the surface," said Assistant
Walton County Administra-
tor Gary Demers cautiously.
"I would like to have more
information on this process
and I would also like the
county engineers to take a
look at the system."


Community forum set


for U.S. 331 bridge issue


A community forum has
been scheduled next month
for information and public
input in connection with the
issue of the four laning of
the U.S. 331 bay bridge
A panel of community
leaders will be present. The
forum will be nonpartisan
and is being sponsored by
the South Walton Repub-
lican Club and the Walton
Republican Women Feder-
ated.
The state Department
of Transportation (DOT)
recently announced plans
to allocate more than $100
million in federal funds for
the four-laning of the bay
bridge, on the condition of
Walton County providing
$75 million in local match-


ing funds. DOT officials
had suggested that the local
match be provided through
the placement of a $2 toll on
the new southbound span of
the bridge. However, DOT
was open to the county pur-
suing other means to pro-
vide the matching funds.
Up to a 1-percent increase
in the sales tax, which will
require passage in a voter
referendum, will be consid-
ered by the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners as a source for the
matching funds.
Currently, William Im-
feld, Walton County finance
director, and Kitty Whitney,
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce president/CEO,
have been scheduled to be


present at the forum to pro-
vide information and an-
swer questions on the issue.
Whitney was a member of
the county's U.S. 331 Blue
Ribbon Task Force, which
held public hearings to con-
sider a recommendation to
the commissioners regard-
ing the bridge project. The
forum organizers have plans
to invite additional mem-
bers to be on the panel, as
well.

The forum is set for 6 8
p.m. on Feb. 9 at the South
Walton Utility Building,
369 Miramar Beach Drive
in Miramar Beach. It is free
of charge, and all communi-
ty members are encouraged
to attend.


1-10 resurfacing scheduled for

Holmes and Walton counties


The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation has
awarded Anderson Colum-
bia a $13.7 million contract
to resurface an 11.8-mile
portion of Interstate 10
that runs through Hol-
mes and Walton counties.
The project extends east
from County Road 183 to


the Choctawhatchee River
Bridge. Construction is set
to begin the week of Jan.
23 and includes resurfacing
the roadway, minor drain-
age improvements, installa-
tion of wildlife fencing, and
placement of new pavement
markings and signs. Motor-
ists can expect intermit-


tent lane restrictions dur-
ing construction. Weather
permitting the project will
be complete late 2012. For

HISTORIC PHOTO OF W. L. Carrico (center) holding the string base in an early photo-
graph at the original Florida Chautauqua Assembly in front of Hotel Chautauqua.


String bass from original Florida

Chautauqua Assembly performances

on display at 2012 Assembly


The string bass used at
the original Florida Chau-
tauqua Assembly perfor-
mances is now in the hands
of the Florida Chautauqua
Center. The relic will be on
display at the new Florida
Chautauqua History Exhib-
it at the Community Cen-
ter on Friday, Jan. 27 and
Saturday, Jan. 28, 8 a.m.
- 5 p.m. during the Florida
Chautauqua Assembly. The
1,000 square-foot exhibit is
free and open to the public.
W. L. Carrico,used the
bass in his orchestra from
1904 to 1909 during original
Florida Chautauqua Assem-
bly performances. Carrico's
orchestra was the official or-
chestra of the Florida Chau-
tauqua, and was a favorite
performance attraction of
the original assemblies.
Photographs of Carrico
posing with the string bass
and his orchestra in front
of Hotel Chautauqua were
marketed by leaders of the
original, assemblies, Hotel
Chautauqua,:anldL&N Rail-
road. Carrico also used the
string bass in performances
at the World's Fair.
Florida Chautauqua
Center archivist and board
member Robert Daniel of
DeFuniak Springs located
the instrument while doing
research for the new Florida
Chautauqua History trav-
elling exhibit. "I was com-
municating with relatives of
the members of the Carrico
Orchestra when I learned of
the existence of the string
bass," he said. One of those
relatives is Mary Lisa Carri-
co Boose, granddaughter of
W. L. Carrico, who lives in
Ohio. "We were so excited
to learn she and the Carrico
family still had the original
string bass," says Daniel,
"but we never dreamed the
family would donate it to
us for permanent display
in our historic community."
Daniel and wife Linda trav-
eled to Tennessee this past
Saturday to meet Mary Lisa
Boose at the half-way point
from Ohio and receive the
bass. "We are very grateful
to Carrico's granddaughter
and family for their entrust-
ing us with this significant
historical treasure," he
said.
Leaders of the Florida
Chautauqua Center plan to
begin a dialogue with com-
munity leaders to see how
the string bass can safely be
on permanent display at the
Chautauqua Hall of Broth-
erhood when not displayed
in the Florida Chautauqua
History traveling exhibit.
The instrument is broken at
the base of the neck where it
connects with the main body
of the instrument. Area
music experts say the piece
can be repaired to working
order. The Florida Chau-
tauqua Center is accepting
donations at the traveling
exhibit this weekend for res-
toration of the piece.
Sponsored by the city of
DeFuniak Springs, the Flor-
ida Chautauqua History Ex-
hibit at the Community Cen-
ter and all other assembly
exhibits are free and open
to the public from 8 a.m. 5

Now



or



never?

By BRUCE COLLIER


At the time this newspaper was being readied for press,
the Highway 331 Blue Ribbon Task Force was going to rec-
ommend that the Walton County Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) move forward with a referendum on a
sales tax increase of up to 1 percent, to raise $75 million
in matching funds for construction of a bridge across Choc-
tawhatchee Bay. The task force was advised that the neces-
sary funds could be raised in 10 years under this method,
and that tourists would bear 56 percent of the tax burden.
The alternative, that of a bridge toll, was not recom-
mended, but the BCC still has the option to support a state-
run bridge toll. If the toll is pegged at $2 or $3, it will be in
place for 30 years before the $75 million is raised.
So why are people so disgruntled? Well, people hate tax-
es, Floridians as much as any and more than most, but they
seem to hate tolls even more than tax increases. They're so...
south Florida. Anyone's who's made the pilgrimage to the
Magic Kingdom knows the drill drive 1,000 feet, pay toll,
drive another 1,000 feet, pay toll, etc. A sales tax increase
is arguably neutral, simply penalizing consumers for the
sin of spending, but a toll hits commuters, working people
who are already shouldering enough of a burden with gas
prices.
The sales tax referendum reportedly will contain strong
language on both the purpose and the lifespan of. the tax
increase. People have been wanting this project for years,
right? So, as the Joker would ask, "Why so serious?"
Among the comments made at the most recent task force
meeting was made by citizen J.B. Hillard, a frequent cor-
respondent to this editorial page. He called the process
"ill-prepared for public consumption." One of the task force
members (Leigh Grantham) characterized the question as
a choice between the lesser of two evils, a gloomy statement
indeed.
J.B.'s comment got me thinking, and one thing still con-
cerns me about this. For years it has been the practice of
Walton County citizens to ask every visiting elected official,
particularly those in federal office, about available funding
to four-lane U.S. 331, including the bay bridge. Until very
recently only a few months the response was candidly
and uniformly the same: Not Gonna Happen. And now, hey,
presto, the state DOT wants to give us $100 million in fed-
eral funds. Only, we have to decide yesterday! If not, we
are told that the money will go away, and never come back.
How certain is that? I don't know, all I'm told is that it is
certain.
I will be very interested to see how the vote goes. I sus-
pect the citizens will approve the referendum, because
we're scared not to. No one wants to be the guy that passed
up a chance at structural progress when it was offered, es-
pecially in the face of a tourist-driven economy. And should
another disastrous hurricane come, no one wants to tell
affected families that we could have got them out of here
faster with a second span, we just didn't want to pay for it.
I don't even want to think about the liability recovery theo-
ries there, but $75 million might just be the starting point.



tor:
Our national dept is increasing towards $16 trillion. It
appears that the U.S. owes far more money than can be
paid back. Yet our leaders at the highest levels continue
their spending spree. There must be a point when countries
like China will refuse to loan the U.S. more money.
From China's viewpoint, they see the most modern coun-
try in the world with endless resources. At some future
time, China could insist that they be allowed to harvest the
oil in the Rocky Mountains. They would ignore EPA's re-
strictions and use the cheapest means available regardless
of damage to the environment. They would have the option
of bringing their own work force so Americans would see no
benefit to the need of thousands of jobs. The Chinese would
not adhere to union demands and their people would work
for diminished wages. The final insult would be the sale of
U.S. oil to the United States at Saudi prices.
Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming hold approximately three
times the Saudi oil reserves. (Ref: American Free Press.


net). Foreign countries could hold the U.S. bondage for the
foreseeable future. EPA's death grip that prevents the har-
vest of unlimited resources here at home would be the de-
struction of a once great country.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE. THURSDAY. JANUARY 26.2012


LN ETiTERTOiU ITE B B 'Ii] EIO


Editor:
A new U.S. 331 span across Choctawhatchee Bay is a mat-
ter of life and death. Walton County has the second worst
hurricane evacuation time in Florida more than 28 hours.
Another Andrew, Opal or Katrina making a sudden turn
could catch Walton County residents on the road, backed
up for miles trying to get across the current two lanes of the
U.S. 331 bridge. Lives will be lost as they have been else-
where. The obvious solution to the horrendous evacuation
time is the $177 million U.S. 331 bridge project offered by
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). In an effort
to live within the ongoing budget shortfalls, FDOT is forg-
ing partnerships with counties that have urgent construc-
tion needs. For Walton this means $102 million available
from federal and state funds with a $75 million match from
Walton County or a toll facility to collect the $75 million.
FDOT is ready to proceed with the bridge funded by a per-
manent $2 or $3 toll on the new south bound span. My hat
is off to the Task Force formed by the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners (BCC) charged to make a recom-
mendation on how to handle the DOT proposal. This after-
noon they recognized the impact of a perpetual toll on work-
ing people in Walton County and recommended the BCC
conduct a referendum to ask Walton County citizens if they


would raise the sales tax by up to 1 percent for as long as
it takes to pay for the new bridge. In general I am against
ever raising taxes, but this is a matter of life and death. My
first thought was that the Task Force had kicked the can
down the road for the BCC to come up with a tax percent-
age. How unfair I was! As the Finance Director, Bill Imfeld
explained to me, a 1-percent tax is quicker but heavier for
county residents. A smaller increase, 1/2 or 3/4 percent, is
lighter, but costs more in the long run. The deciding fac-
tor should be which tax rate imposes the most acceptable
burden and ends the soonest. I sincerely hope the Commis-
sioners ask the Finance Director for his best figures on a
temporary 1 percent, 1/2 percent and a 3/4 percent sales tax
increase, select the best, and then call for a referendum. In
a referendum I hope the people of Walton County take to
heart the urge to protect human life by doubling the evacu-
ation capacity of U.S. 331. The economic stimulus of a new
span will be a perpetual bonus for county residents north
and south of the bay. Again, hats off and thanks to the Task
Force for their diligence and wise decision.

Editor:
The Walton County Board of Commissioners have a
chance to make 'a tremendously important decision regard-
ing funding the building of a second bridge on Highway 331
as it crosses the Bay.
They're faced with the decision paying the county's por-
tion ($75 million) by deciding to have a toll (perhaps $2 to
$3 on the southbound lanes only) or a 1 percent sales tax.
Florida's Department of Transportation is contributing
$102 million for the bridge, IF the county approves a plan
to pay the $75 million.
Those who favor a toll argue that only those who use
the bridge should pay for it, whereas everyone pays with a
tax.
The reality is that 57 percent of the sales taxes in Walton
County come from tourists. If a toll were imposed, only a
small percentage of tourists coming to south Walton would
pay $2, and they would probably only cross the bridge once
during a week long stay. So a tourist would pay $2 for the


week. On the other hand, if a 1 percent sales tax were in
place, that tourist -- who might be spending $2,000 for a
week in Walton County -- would contribute $20. A tax will
not discourage tourists from coming to Walton County.
A toll would also take about 30 years to pay off, and the 1
percent tax would pay for the bridge in less than 10 years.
A toll puts the. burden squarely on the shoulders of the
working people who have to cross the bridge every day. Also,
the sales tax does not apply to food and medicine.
Funding this bridge extension is not just about evacua-
tion and saving lives -- it's about developing the long term
economic viability of the county. In plain English, that
mean jobs.
I encourage the Board of County Commissioners to vote
for a sales tax.

Editor:
As reported by the DeFuniak Springs Herald, in the Jan.
19, 2012 edition, the BCC recently released the attorney
fees charged to the county for the Fiscal Years 2007-2011.
While I hardly think the figures adequately represent the
money that taxpayers have spent in attorney fees (litiga-
tion, and settlements do not appear to have been included
in the figures provided) it was interesting to note that the
county seemed to spend less money with an in-house attor-
ney. That being said, the process for selecting a new county
attorney looks to be swirling in yet more controversy.
Dawn Moliterno is the Executive Director of the TDC and
being any part of the decision making process for the hiring
of a county attorney goes way beyond logic and certainly
beyond the scope of her duties as the TDC Director. It is
common knowledge in Walton County that the Adkinson
Law Firm has already been "selected" and that the review
process is nothing more than grandstanding by the BCC to
make it appear they are doing their jobs and what is in the
best interest of the taxpayers. What a joke!
It was also recently brought to my attention that the city
Of DeFuniak (The City Council) is also less than interested
in doing what's right by the taxpayers inside the city limits
as evidenced by the fact that Clayton Adkinson has repre-
sented the city of DeFuniak for over 30 years WITHOUT A
CONTRACT. What city or county in their right mind would
allow someone to work for them (particularly an attorney)


without a contract? Even the city manager should have a
contract as should anyone who contracts to do business
with the city or county.
An attorney bases fees on such factors as the degree of
difficulty of a particular legal task, the amount of time in-
volved, the experience, and skill of the attorney in the par-
ticular area of law and the attorney's cost of doing business.
The cost of doing business, referred to as overhead, usu-
ally includes rent, equipment, salaries, maintenance of a
library, and costs associated with maintaining the lawyer's
level of professional skills and education. A lawyer's over-
head normally comprises 35 to 50-percent of the legal fees
charged. So basically this means that the TAXPAYERS pay
for all the above and Adkinson gets to right his own pay-
check for the fees he charges to attend Council meetings,
hearings, trials etc.etc. add nauseam. What a cushy gravy
train this has been for the last 30 years...would the city care
to tell the taxpayers how we can get on the train?
Lynda Morse
DeFuniak Springs
P.S. Would someone at City Hall please advise Paul Mac
Work that the green mold growing up the side of his house
creates an eyesore and that condemnation proceedings are
easy to come by in DeFuniak? Perhaps for a fee Mr. Adkin-
son can be persuaded to start them.


LETE O HEEITOR


Editor:
1. Senator Jim Demint (R)(SC) made the subject com-
ment on Fox News Sunday morning, Jan. 22, 12. I believe
this to be the absolute truth. We know from the Bible God
will change his mind. It's now time to change God's mind
about the destiny of ourselves, nation and world. Like David
against Goliath we each know exactly how God has gifted
and prepared us. Remember we each have to answer to God
alone without excuse. My total belief is that we have to step
out without fear in total belief. For me this means doing all
I can to see the following is done as quickly as God permits
(a) encourage our elected Congress to have a recall Obama


vote (b) elect as next president a man with a repentance
and open to heart to God, himself and everyone. As a fur-
ther note: Ken Lagone, one of the founders of Home Depot
Sunday morning on Fox News said to support Mitt Romey
for president. Those living a half truth support the same.
(2) Let's pray for each other, love and forgive each following
Jesus' perfect example and ask God to change his mind for
America and the world. Most important let us do our part.

Sincerely
William Webster

can have, there was enough
support for the spirit of the
new ordinance for it to pass
with a 5-0 vote.
Councilman Ron Kel-
ley said he trusts the city's
business owners to make
responsible choices with the
new sign ordinance, but also
said revision at a future date
is always an option if lack of
regulation becomes a prob-
lem. For now though, he and
the others on the Council fa-
vored giving business "every
helping hapd [they] can."
"The sign ordinance, as it
exists today, is the most dra-
conian, business-killing, an-
ti-development piece of city
ordinance trash I have ever
encountered, and, frankly, I
know what business has suf-
fered under that ordinance,"
he said amid applause from
supporters of the new ordi-
nance. "I know of dozens of
dozens of empty storefronts
I could drive all over this
town to show you.
"If [the new. ordinance]
goes a little too far, I'm will-
ing to take that risk because
I'd like to see what busi-
ness might do without [the
old ordinance] because...if
we find out later we made a
mistake we can go back and
fix that."
Before voting commenced,
members of the business
community that had a
hand in crafting the new
ordinance, which removed
whole pages from the more
restrictive prior ordinance
that had been in place since
2009, came out in support
of the changes and spoke
on its behalf. Evans Carpet
City owner Scott Nail said
businesses need all the help

unable to set aside the nec-
essary money to pay their


bills in advance. However,
discussion brought to light
that Social Security checks
are mailed out based on the
birth date of the recipient,
so it would be impossible to
resolve the issue simply by
pushing back due dates un-
less the process was carried
out for all of the approxi-
inately 800 customers.
A large part of Paxton's
factored-in water and sewer
system revenues come from
late-fee penalties' assessed
on water bills. With the


ty shows that 56 percent of
a burden for sales tax hike
would be borne by tourists
and the rest by county resi-
dents.
Compared to the last
meeting, when public opin-
ion was fairly divided among
those in favor of a toll, those
for a tax referendum and
those against the bridge al-
together, none who spoke at
the most recent meeting fa-
vored a toll. Colby Anderson,
who owns a small insulation
company, said a toll would
impede his ability to com-
pete with rival businesses in
Okaloosa and Bay counties
which would not have to pay
a southbound toll on the new
bridge. Anderson, among
others at the meeting, was
not entirely convinced that
new bridge was necessary
or even prudent given the fi-
nancial situation the county
finds itself in but neverthe-
less contended that, should
a bridge be built, the cost
should be shared by every
resident of the county.
"If we are going to do it,
I think the county should
have to pay the tax, not just
a certain group of people
who access this bridge every
single day," Anderson said.
"I think it needs to be dis-
tributed equally throughout
the county."

Fiscal Year 2012 budget al-
ready in the books, no deci-
sion could be made until Oc-
tober when the new budget
goes up for adoption, but the
Council decided to reconsid-
er the issue of changing the
late fee process in order to
help low-income members of
the community.
Finally, the Coun-
cil heard a presentation
from Empire Pipe and Sup-
ply Company Sales Man-
ager. Robert Peterson, who
pitched an electronic water
meter that can be measured
remotely via a radio trans-
mitter as a future solution
for Paxton's aging water
meters. The company re-
cently installed the system
in nearby Florala, Ala.
The electronic meters,
which cost approximately
$200 apiece versus $50 for a
conventional meter, feature
backflow detection software
and the capability to store 5
1/2 months' worth of history
on daily water usage thanks
to data-logging software.
Peterson said each meter
unit has a 22-year battery
life and a 22-year warranty
on the electronics. Advan-
tages of an electronic system
would be increased worker
productivity, increased leak
detection and increased
profits for the city.

dent J.B. Hillard said FDOT
had not done sufficient re-
search upon which to base
the information it provided
to the BCC, which in turn
handed the responsibility of
approaching the public over
to the Blue Ribbon Task
Force. He called the whole
process "ill-prepared for
public consumption," while
others agreed the county
should carefully examine
the future consequences of
either option.
However, as task force
member Leigh Grantham
said, it was the panel's re-
sponsibility to "choose the
lesser of the evils." Gran-
tham said a referendum
was the only way to gauge
the public's opinion since,
even with three workshops
held throughout the coun-
ty, the task force had only
heard from a small number
of those to be potentially im-
pacted by the panel's recom-
mendation and the BCC's
ultimate decision.
Task force member Bon-
nie McQuiston made a mo-
tion for a referendum, which
was quickly seconded. After
the proposed language of
-the referendum was ham-
mered out, the recommen-
dation passed unanimously
and swiftly.
Walton County Sheriff
Mike Adkinson said he had


Water Department Man-
ager Frank Burlison said
the current water loss
throughout the system was
holding at 1 percent, but
that percentage is beginning
to climb as the meters age.
When that happens, the city
will have to replace its me-
ters anyway, and he said the
city and its, customers could
possibly save money in the
long run by spending the ex-
tra money to upgrade to an
electronic meter system.
Though the Council did
not vote on the matter, the
consensus was to begin,
looking for grants or,tax-ex-
empt municipal leases from
the state to finance such
a project, which Peterson
said would come in around
$225,000 for a turnkey sys-
tem, plus a $3 monthly
charge per meter.


consumer will decide with
their dollars what signage
is appropriate and what is
not, rather than an overly
restrictive ordinance.
However, not all who
spoke at the meeting were
in favor of the new sign or-
dinance. DeFuniak Springs
resident Jeanine Cole said
the new "anything goes"
sign ordinance was the
equivalent of "giving the
keys to your car to a teen-
ager without any rules" and
that the "visual pollution" of
excess signage would harm
the city's aesthetic integ-
rity, lower property values
and pose a threat to public
safety. She suggested that
the old ordinance undergo
further review before the
City Council voted to pass
the new ordinance, but
Sign Ordinance Committee
Chairman Art Dees, who
spoke after Cole, thought
otherwise.
"Our job is complete," he
said. "We're done. Hopeful-
ly we did our job...nothing
more, nothing less."
The Councilmen evident-
ly thought so too and, after
everyone who wished to had
their chance to speak, they
voted unanimously to pass
the sign ordinance.
The other big item on the
City Council's agenda at the
meeting was another unani-
mous vote, this time to ap-
prove the contract of newly
hired City Manager Sarah
Bowers. The Council decid-
ed to raise Bowers' salary
$500 per year above that of
Assistant City Manager Bill
Holloway, brining Bowers'
total salary to $77,584.80
per year. The contract's du-
ration was set from Jan. 17,
2012, to Jan 15, 2013.
Going along with that, the
Council also decided to ad-
vertise for the hire of a new
finance director, which was
Bowers' previous job with
the city before taking on the


role of Interim City Manag-
er some months ago. Other
changes to city staff includ-
ed Council's authorization to
hire Lisa Gierlinsky as Bow-
ers' full time administrative
assistant and a change in
pay grade for Lacey Wood-
ham, Mayor Harold Car-
penter's executive assistant,
from Grade 7 to Grade 10,
which meant, in the words
of Councilman Mac Work,
a well-deserved salary in-
crease. Gierlinsky, who only
recently came on board, and
Woodham, an employee at
City Hall since 2006, both
received high praise for
their hard work and pro-
fessionalism from the indi-
vidual members of the City
Council, the mayor and city
staff.
The Council also heard
an update from Economic
Development Committee
chair and DeFuniak Springs
Business and Professional
Association President Sara
Comander. She informed
the board that her commit-
tee had compiled a list of all
the business organizations
in the area for the purpose
of coordinating economic de-
velopment projects between
the groups. Furthermore,
the committee also came
up with a list of this year's
projects, which include a
movie night around Lake
DeFuniak at Chipley Park,
a state-sanctioned barbecue
contest to be held around
Circle Drive and Snowbird
Day festivities on Feb. 23.
Comander said plans had
been laid to make it a day-
long event bringing some of
the out-of-state visitors to
Walton County's beaches up
to visit the historic district
of DeFuniak Springs. Tours
of Circle Drive homes, the
DeFuniak Springs Public
Library and Chautauqua
Winery are all expected to
feature prominently.

supported a voter refer-
endum before he was ever
asked to join the committee
and that opinion had not
wavered throughout the pro-
ceedings of the past meet-
ings. He said that it was the
responsibility of the BCC
to take the issue of funding
the bridge before the voters
since it would amount to go-
ing "beyond what the tax-
payers provided." Adkinson
contended that a referen-
dum was the most equitable
way for the people of the
county to have a say in the
matter.
"Whether you support
[a tax], a toll or no bridge
at all, that decision should
not be, in [my] opinion, be
made by a committee and/or
the Board of County Com-
missioners," Adkinson said.
"That decision should .be put
before the voters.
"If we, as a county, decide
that we do not want to pay a
sales tax, then let us be pre-
pared to live with it."
The task force was set
to make its recommenda-
tion for a referendum at the
BCC's meeting on Tuesday,
Jan. 24.

THE DeF'UNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE. THURSDAY. JANUARY 26.2012


TURTLE BOB WALKER with indigo snake.


GOPHER TORTOISE and friend.


LET'S BE FRIENDS.


E.O. Wilson Biophilia Gopher Tortoise Program Turtle Bob


Story and photos by
BEN GRAFTON

On Saturday, Jan. 21,
Robert, "Turtle Bob," Walk-
er presented a program for
family groups with school
age children about the E.O.
Wilson Biophilia Center's
gopher tortoise restoration
project. Turtle Bob was orig-
inally hired by Nokuse Plan-
tation as the gopher tortoise
biologist; about 2 1/2 years,
ago he transferred over to
the E.O. Wilson Center.

According to Turtle Bob,
Nokuse Plantation is a con-
servatiori area of close to
50,000 acres. A restoration
project is underway to re-
store it to its original status
as a long leaf pine forest.
An essential part df the ef-
fort is to restore the gopher
tortoise population which
at one time was perhaps
20,000 animals of whom, in
2006, there were only about
500 left.


In the presentation Tur-
tle Bob reported that the
gopher tortoise, which is the
only one of 26 turtle spe-
cies in Florida that is not
aquatic, was first identi-
fied as threatened. Now it
is recognized as an endan-
gered species although the
designation has not been of-
ficially changed due to mon-
etary restraints. This tor-
toise lives in high sand hill
country with deep sandy soil
where it digs burrows for its
home that may be up to 45
feet long and 25 feet deep.
It is the keystone species
for a substantial number
of animals including indigo
snakes, gopher frogs, gopher
mice, race runners, a type of
cave cricket and many oth-
ers. The burrow either of-
fers temporary shelter from
wildfire to many animals or,
as in the case of the cricket,
it provides a food produc-
tion site for other creatures.
If the gopher tortoise fails,
other animals fail with it.


It is now a felony to harm
a gopher tortoise in any
way.
At the end of the program
Turtle Bob, helped by school
age volunteers, toured the
room with live animals, in-


eluding an indigo snake,
a gray rat snake, a red rat
snake, all of which are non-
poisonous, and a gopher
tortoise. Audience members
could not only see the ani-
mals up close, but they were


encouraged to touch or hold
them.
A special treat was seeing
the reaction of the children
to the program with their
interest and their willing-
ness to touch and hold the


animals.
Educational programs
of this type are presented
frequently at the Biophilia
Center. Admission is the
standard entrance fee for
visiting the Center.

Lopez Tabor duo makes a dazzling start to Lakeview Concert Series


Story and photo by
BRUCE COLLIER

'Lakeview Concert Series
Guild, Inc. began its 2012
season of musical entertain-
ment with a duo of area fa-
vorites. Violinist Alfonso
Lopez and pianist Michelle
Tabor, collectively the Lo-
pez Tabor Duo, brought an
extended, carefully chosen
program of 19th and 20th
century works by masters
of the violin, piano and sym-
phonic composition. The
concert took place Jan. 22


at First United Methodist
Church, 88 Circle Drive in
DeFuniak Springs.
Venezuelan maestro Lo-
pez is concertmaster of the
Venezuela Symphony Or-
chestra, the country's na-
tional and principal orches-
tra. He conducts, teaches,
and composes. Tabor, who
grew up in Venezuela, now
lives in Tallahassee and
holds doctorate, master's,
and bachelor's degrees in
music from Florida State
University, the University
of Denver, and Tulane Uni-


versity. The duo has played
several times in DeFuniak
Springs, and this concert
drew a sizable audience.
The program, which ran
without narration and with
one intermission, featured a
selection of works by Fred-
eric Chopin (1810-1849),
Johannes Brahms (1833-
1897), Camille Saint-Saens
(1835- 1921), Astor Piazzolla
(1921 1992), Fritz Kreisler
(1875 1962) and Pablo de
Sarasate (1844-1908). The
first three composers were
also distinguished pianists,


while Kreisler and Saras-
ate are ranked among the
world's greatest violinists.
To many, Piazzolla is syn-
onymous with tango music,
and the Lopez Tabor Duo
often includes his works in
their repertoire. The domi-
nant tone of the program
was that of passion and vir-
tuosity, both in the composi-
tions themselves and in the
duo's spirited playing. Both
piano and violin had their
time center stage.
The program selections
played were: Chopin's Noc-


turne in E-flat major, Op 9
No. 2, and Nocturne in C-
sharp minor, Brahms' So-
nata for Piano and Violin
in D-minor, Op. 108, Saint-
Saens' Introduction and
Rondo Capriccioso, Piaz-
zola's Adios Nonino and Mi-
longa del Angel, Kreisler's
Liebeslied and Liebesfreud,
and Sarasate's Introduction
and Tarantella, Op. 43.
There were some inter-
esting connections between
composers Saint-Saens
wrote his Rondo for Sara-
sate to play, and Kreisler
also wrote a cadenza (an or-
namental passage, written
or improvised, to highlight
a musician's virtuosity) for
one of Brahms' violin con-


certos. Also, the program
covered a significant and
varied period of musical his-
tory, starting with Chopin's
Romanticism and going
to Piazzola's 20th century
work, which incorporated
jazz and modern music.
The Lopez Tabor Duo's
website is at www.lopez-
taborduo.embarqspace.com.
A reception for audience
and musicians followed the
performance.
The next Lakeview
Concert Series offering is
scheduled for Mhy 20, and
will feature harpist Mary
Bridget Roman. The Lake
view concerts are free, and
a voluntary donation is ac-
cepted.


IN HONOR OF ARBOR DAY, several DeFuniak Springs Garden Club members gathered around the Lakeyard to plant
a pink blooming dogwood. The planting is an annual event; last year the group planted a magnolia. City employees had
prepared the site which made the job a little bit easier. "We sure appreciate the help the city gives us," said Arbor Day
Chairperson Becky Grant. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)

Going Home

In memory of Jack Little

June 13, 1926- Jan. 24, 2012

An angel came and gently touched' my hand,
He guided me into the promised land.
Now I walk with Jesus in His majestic reign,
and live in a kingdom with no sickness or pain.
Though I leave you alone and go on my way,
remember this is a glorious day!
I'll join our loved ones in the sky,
and live in a mansion nevermore to die.
When you need me, you'll know I'm near,
My spirit will be with you, so shed no tears.
I'll always be as close as your memories,
watching you from above all eternity.
Just keep this thought forever in your mind,
as I walk this path, you're not far behind.
so I'm going home to reserve you a place.

extension office employees gave a helping hand loading up
trees purchased at the yearly sale.


THE DOGS-R-US 4-H Club served up breakfast with a smile this past Saturday morning to many hungry shoppers and

Story and photos by
ALICIA LEONARD
Pancakes, book and all
sorts of plants drew big
crowds this past Saturday
at the Walton County Fair-
grounds.
First, everyone got their
most important meal of the
day, breakfast, served with
a smile and for a good cause
by the Dogs-R- Us 4-H Club
at the county extension of-
fice. Plates were loaded up
with pancakes, eggs, sau-
sage with a choice of drink
and all going to benefit
Southeastern Guidedogs.
These guide-dogs provide
mobility and a chance at
living with some normalcy
to those who cannot see.
After getting some-
thing to eat, locals lined up
around the building to get a
shot at some shrubs, and a
whole lot more at the Wal-
ton County Master Gardner
Tree Sale. This yearly event
is always well attended and
draws shoppers from near
and far. With the help of the
University of Florida Exten-
sion partners, everything
from orange to cypress trees
were up for grabs with lots
of ornamental shrubs and
hot coffee to boot for land-
scaping lovers. You had to
be quick, though, because


they sold out fast of many of
the varieties offered.
During all of this, the
Friends of the Library were
having one of their super
book sales. Shoppers pe-


rused and stuffed their bags
full of books and more books
for some rainy day reading
materials. The Friends have
these sales five times a year
and the nest one will be held


on March 17. For those that
have too many books, the
Friends welcome donations
and they can be dropped off
at the DeFuniak Springs Li-
brary.


THESE CITRUS trees went fast as shoppers scooped up the fine specimens produced by
the master gardeners for their yearly sale.


'i,


KAY STREET AND MARY BURNS manned the sale
table for Friends of the Library this past Saturday morning.
(Pictured l-r)


YOU HAVE to be quick to grab the plants you want at this sale. The crowd quickly starts
to thin out the merchandise offered at the yearly tree sale.


BOOK, BOOKS, and more books were up for sale from the Friends of the Library as well.
Shoppers filled up their bags with lots of rainy day reading materials.


SHOPPERS LINED up waiting for the gates to open for the annual Master Gardner Tree
Sale. The much anticipated event draws shoppers from near and far every year.

Sarah Flow retires



after 65 years with



Green & Green


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 26,2012


By BRUCE COLLIER

Legal secretary Sarah
Flow, still active in her 90s,
recently retired after 65
years with the DeFuniak
Springs law firm of Green &
Green. She started in 1947,
and attorney W.F. Green
was her first boss. The office
was originally in the former
Cawthon State Bank, and
later moved. Her daughter,


Cynthia Smith, who resides
in Tallahassee, noted that
Flow had the first electric
typewriter in DeFuniak
Springs. Flow and Smith
joked that her boss W.F.
Green used to say he would
have the typewriter bronzed
for her. She also recalled his
frequent use of the dicta-
phone for briefs and corre-
spondence.
Asked to recall any mem-


orable cases in the decades
of her employment. Flow de-
clined to comment. "Leave
your day's work in the of-
fice," was W.F.'s instruction
to her, and Flow scrupu-
lously maintained attorney/
client confidentiality.

Flow's colleagues treated
her to a retirement party
luncheon at the Hotel De-
Funiak.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,

I have two children, a
boy and a girl, barely a year
apart. My daughter is the
oldest. My issue is both of my
kids, ages 7 and 8, are fight-
ing all the time. They don't
really yell at each other, but
my daughter will sometime
just haul off and wrestle
my son to the ground and
put him in some gosh awful
wrestling hold. Their dad
let them watch wrestling
before all this started hap-
pening. They have always
been competitive with one
another and no one has been
hurt really, I am just morti-
fied as a mother that my
daughter is displaying such
aggressiveness. I will admit
my son often has been pick-
ing on her about something
when this happens. I had to
physically break them up in
Walmart the other day and
peel her off of him. I've done


time out and I literally just
upped and left my buggy
and walked out with both
of them the' other day in
the store when it happened.
Any advice on this situation
would be appreciated.

Wrestling with the kids in
Walton

Dear Wrestling,

I am going to go out on a
limb here and tell you that
this might not be something
to totally be mortified over.
Your son is obviously push-
ing his sister's buttons and
she is working through
ways to respond, such as a
headlock. They are push-
ing boundaries and push-
ing your buttons as well. I
think you did the right thing
by walking out of the store
when they acted out.
It might also help if dad
mentioned to them that


this behavior outside of the
World Wide Wrestling ring
is not usually acceptable. He
also needs to back you up on
any rules about expressions
of frustration or anger.
I will add that I don't
think letting the kids work
out their issues at home is
necessarily a bad thing.
Your daughter might just
get your son's attention and
respect if she puts him in a
Las Vegas leg lock, and hav-
ing an assertive daughter
that is not afraid to tussle
with a male might be a plus
for her later in life. I know
that physical violence is
never the answer, but as
long as they are not really
getting hurt. I would let


and other baby items. Kid's
Closet is open every first
and third Wednesday at the
First Presbyterian Church
on the Circle in DeFuniak
Springs.
Those needing supplies
should bring identification.
For more information call
Tammi (850)259-0760.


them work out their issues,
but remind them that in the
real world this behavior is
not acceptable. I think part
of this is just being kids and
some physical interaction
comes with that, especial-
ly when you are a girl and
your main playmates are
males. I had to deal with it
as a youngster and I never
put anyone in a figure four
hold in the grocery store as
an adult. Let them play and
learn their boundaries and
don't hesitate to set those
boundaries if things get too
rough. Good luck and God
bless.

Going
Home

In memory of Jack Little
June 13, 1926- Jan. 24, 2012
An angel came and gently touched my hand,
He guided me into the promised land.
Now I walk with Jesus in His majestic reign,
and live in a kingdom with no sickness or pain.
Though I leave you alone and go on my way,
remember this is a glorious day!
I'll join our loved ones in the sky,
and live in a mansion nevermore to die.
When you need me, you'll know I'm near,
My spirit will be with you, so shed no tears.
I'll always be as close as your memories,
watching you from above all eternity.
Just keep this thought forever in your mind,
as I walk this path, you're not far behind.
Our Saviour is waiting in heavenly space,
so I'm going home to reserve you a place.

Step into the Water

By Ronnie McBrayer


Collecting items


for Kid's Closet


I met Candice on a Florida
sidewalk while walking to
the beach. She was a young,
blonde, attractive woman,
and she was hovering close
behind me as if she had
something to say. She had
something to say alright I
haven't been the same since
hearing her story.
My Florida congregation,
where I once lived, was hav-
ing a beach baptismal ser-
vice, something fairly com-
mon along the coastline on
Sunday mornings. A dozen
people were stepping into
the water that morning, and
at the last minute, Candice
wanted to be one of them;
thus her lurking presence
behind me.
Turning to her, I asked,
"Can I help you?" She an-
swered, "I think so if you
think I'm not crazy." Admit-
tedly, such an introduction
did not instill confidence.
I've met more than one spir-
itual loony-bird in my life,
and' I have a pretty good in-
stinct for when one is close
by. Candice didn't seem
"crazy." She appeared timid
- wounded but not crazy.
She said: "Today is my first
visit to your church, and I


can't say why I showed up
except that God,wanted me
here. See, this is the first
time I've been to any church
in a long time. When I was
a fifteen I had my long hair
cut and donated it to Locks
for Love, so a young girl who
was having radiation treat-
ments could have a beauti-
ful blonde wig. I went to
church the next Sunday
so happy about what I had
done, sporting my new pixie,
haircut. But the leadership
of the church because of
their beliefs was not very
happy. They told me I had
forfeited my 'woman's glory'
and that I had disgraced
myself because of a haircut."
Candice then described what
was essentially an exorcism,
as the church leaders gath-
ered around her to cast out
the devil that prompted her
to put the clippers to her
head. She resisted and pro-
tested, but was told that she
would go to hell if she did
not submit.
Her response was, "Well,
if I'm going to hell, I might
as well get started." She
left the church, many of its
members being her imme-
diate and extended family,


and never returned until 10
stormy, pain-ridden years
later, standing on that Flor-
ida sidewalk.
Candice then made one
of the greatest professions
of faith I have ever heard.
She said, "I understand to-
day that I can let all that
past go. I don't need that
church or all their rules, I
just need Jesus. I have my
swimsuit in the car, and
if you still don't think I'm
crazy, and if you will wait
for me to change, I want to
get baptized and start over."
I would have waited for her
to have driven all the way to
New Orleans and back if it
had been required.
When she did get to the
water I took her by the hand
and asked, "Do you believe
that Jesus is the Christ; and
do you choose to follow him
today into the kingdom of
God." By the time she an-
swered with an emphatic
"Yes," tears were rolling
down both our faces.
I could spend the next de-
cade of my life railing against
that backward church that
committed such a spiritual
crime against Candice, a
child with divine intentions.


But I'll not do that. They
can't hear such words, be-
ing so much smarter than
God as they are, and besides
that, Candice has moved
on. She has found peace; a
vibrant, healthy faith; spiri-
tual and emotional healing;
and a very happy marriage.
These joyful things did
not magically attach them-
selves to Candice as she
stepped from the water,
dripping, smiling, and shiv-
ering onto a Florida beach,
any more than salt water
can rinse our souls or wash
painful memories away. But
there is something power-
ful glorious and cleans-
ing in letting go of all that
has harmed us to take hold
of the One who simply said,
"Come to me and recover
your life." You aren't crazy,
Candice. You have recov-
ered your life. Now go live
it."

was slow-scoring for both
sides, but Freeport still out-
pointed Northview 7-5, with
Hamm scoring five of those
seven points. Northview
scored three of their points
on a shot from the perim-
eter with 30 seconds left in
the game but that was as
close as the Lady Chiefs got
as Freeport rolled on the
12-point victory.

The boys' matchup, as
was previously mentioned,
amounted to a rout, and
the Bulldogs ran riot on the
Chiefs from the outset.
Piasecki and Myrick came
out big in the first quarter
and Freeport led the game
13-2 with 4:00 minutes left
in the first quarter. The
Bulldogs scored on 10 of 12
attempts from the floor by
the time the buzzer sounded
on the end of the period.
The Bulldogs had just one
turnover to Northview's six,
which marked the beginning
of an unfortunate trend for
the visiting team that would
only serve to exacerbate the
Chiefs anemic shooting.
Woodard scored 10 points
from all ranges in the sec-


ond quarter,- though he
made up the most of his
seven 3-pointers at that
time, while Moore punctu-
ated two breakaway layups
with a dunk at the 6-minute
mark for six points in the
same period. Freeport had
already established a 36-16
lead with four minutes re-
maining until the half but
six more turnovers from the
Chiefs made that a 52-22
lead at the buzzer.

The third quarter was the
roughest for Freeport, as the
team had both four turn-
overs and saw its shooting
percentage drop, with only
6-of-15 shots finding the net.
Nevertheless, the Bulldogs
still outpointed Northview
18-6 in the period, when the
Chiefs committed yet anoth-
er six turnovers. Freeport
led by 40 points with 2:00
showing, but a last-second
two-pointer made it 70-28.
The final quarter lasted
eight real-time minutes
as the clock ran the whole
time. Freeport's boys scored
10 more points in the pe-
riod while allowing North-
view just four more points.
Myrick made several trips
to the free-throw line to
pad out the Bulldogs' over-
whelming 48-point victory.
Northview's highest-scor-
ing players were Zac Brown
and Roderick Woods, who
each scored an identical
eight points, to combine for
exactly half of the Chiefs'
scoring on the night.


lead to 51-36 after three
quarter of play.
The Pirates earned a
sweep in the regular season
series with a 13-11 scoring
advantage over the final
eight minutes of play to im-
prove to 20-2 on,the year.
JoJo Carlson added 10
points for the visiting team
while Holmes County strug-
gled to battle the Pirates
for rebounds as the squad
played without starting cen-
ter Hannah Howell who was
lost to the squad with a foot
injury in a game against
Baker earlier in the week.
The Bluedevils managed
to get to the free throw line
only three times during the
game, making a lone shot
from the charity stripe to
the chagrin of many of their
fans.
Eight different Pirates
had a hand in the scoring
column as Ponce de Leon
wrapped up their ninth
consecutive season of 20 or
more wins with the victory
over their county rival.
Team Notes: Tim Alford
has posted a 209-60 record
the last nine seasons with
the Pirates. Jasmine Flock
passed the 1,000 points
scored mark in the Pirates
game at Graceville on Jan.
12. Flock now has 1,056
points scored in 105 games
entering the final week of
the girls regular season.
Flock joins Mary Howes,
Hillary Harper and Lacey
Griffin as Pirates players
to reach that mark over the
last five years.

Walton Girls Wrap Up 4-0 District Mark


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
overcame a sluggish shoot-
ing night by forcing 36 turn-
overs from the Marianna
Bulldogs as they earned a
49-39 home victory to finish
the District 1, Class 4A slate
at 4-0 while earning a state
playoff berth with the win.
Walton, which plays in


a three-team district with
Marianna and Pensacola
Catholic, locked up a berth
in the district championship
game on Feb. 4 in Pensacola
by finishing as the top team
in the regular season to earn
the #1-seed. The Braves
swept both the Crusaders
and Bulldogs in the regular
season to become the first


Area 5 team assured of
playing in the Florida High
School state girls basketball
playoffs.
Junior Taliah Moore
scored 14 of her 18 points
in the first half as Walton
pulled away for a 28-17 lead
at intermission. Freshman
Krista McQueen added 10
points from off the bench as
the Braves managed to hit
only 15-of-62 shots from the
field during the 32-minute
contest.
Marianna could not take
advantage of the Braves
shooting woes as the suf-
fered from poor ball-han-
dling as well as lackluster
free throw shooting, hitting
just 8-of-18 shots from the
charity stripe. The Bulldogs
got within three points of
the Braves in the final three
minutes of the game but
Moore canned a key three-
point shot to push the lead
to six points with two min-
utes to play and the Bull-.
dogs failed to score from


that point on.
Marianna got 12 points
from the lone senior on their
squad, as Laqueesha Davis
provided outside shooting
for a Bulldogs squad that
had plenty of size on the in-
terior.
Walton helped them-
selves by canning 16-of-24
shots from the free throw
line, hitting 10-of-13 in the
second half, to hold off a
Marianna squad that was
looking to pull an upset.
Walton (15-6) had turn-
over troubles of their own
as they committed 26 on the
night, but the Braves got off
19 more shots from the field
as Marianna(5-10) struggled
to control the basketball on
offense.

Team Notes: Walton
coach Jerry Hester is in
his third season in charge
of the girls program and
holds a record of 45-24 with
the club. Taliah Moore was
honored at halftime of the


contest with a game ball for
breaking the 1.000-points
scored mark against Hol-
mes County on Jan. 12.
Moore now has 1,051 points
scored in her three years on
the varsity. Walton will play


the winner of the Marianna-
Pensacola Catholic game
on Saturday, Feb. 4. in the
Catholic gymnasium for the
District 1, Class 4A champi-
onship and a home playoff
game.


WALTON STRUGGLED TO STOP MARIANNA'S size
on the inside in the second half of the Braves game with the
Bulldogs but the home team found just enough offense to
capture the regular season district title. The Braves posted a
4-0 mark in District 1 of Class 4A and earned a state playoff
berth with the victory. (Photo by Patrick Casey)

Bobcats and Lady Cats cruise past Bethlehem

to top district tournament seeds


By REID TUCKER
Paxton's girls' and boys'
basketball teams swept
visiting district opponents
Bethlehem to lock in first-
and-second seeds, respec-
tively, in District 1-A.
The Lady Cats (16-4, 8-1)
turned a 40-5 halftime lead
into a blowout 57-18 vic-
tory on Tuesday, Jan. 17,
with mostly non-starters
on the court. With the win
over Bethlehem's girls (1-
13, 0-8), who have lost their
last five games in a row,
Paxton's girl's team is now
the undisputed leader in the
district, whereas the boys
squad closed in on a num-
ber-two seed, with their only
two league losses coming to
Malone. The Bobcats (14-5,
7-2) dominated Bethlehem
(8-12, 2-6) with a score of
69-45, remaining about 20
points in lead from the half
on.
Paxton's squads were
led in scoring by the usual
suspects: on the girls' side,
Alyssa Dupree led the Lady
Cats with 21 points scored
entirely in the first half. She
sat out most of the second
half while her teammates
rolled on the win over Beth-
lehem. Chad Zessin scored
28 points for Paxton's boys
during the game, which
featured many trips to the
stripe for the senior, who
turned in a 12-for-15 av-
erage from the free throw
line.
The home team came out
strong in the girls' side, with
Paxton running up a 23-zip
lead before the buzzer. Du-
pree scored 10 points from
the floor and went 4-for-4
at the stripe, while second-
highest-scorer Emily Mur-
ray hit one shot from the
perimeter, one in the paint,
and two at the free-throw
line. The second quarter
saw Dupree and Murray
each do more long-range
work before the Lady Cats


began rotating in players
from the bench. Freshman
Bethany Neale, who went
on to score six points on
the night, hit all four free-
throw attempts and Quinn
Williams drained a three to
give Paxton its overwhelm-
ing halftime lead.
Summer Potter got off
two 3-pointers for Bethle-
hem in third quarter, but
the visiting team was al-
ready badly behind and,
despite scoring just three
.points in the period, Paxton
continued to surge ahead
in the final eight minutes.
Megan Newborn, Chrissy
Currid, Haley Revette, Re-
becca Ferreira and Neale all
got on the scoreboard in the
fourth quarter as the Lady
Cats put the wraps on the
second-to-last home game of
the regular season.
Paxton's boys, led by Zes-
sin,. went up more than 10
points on the Wildcats by
the end of the first quarter,
a deficit they doubled by the
end of the second, to make
the score 48-28, thanks
largely to turnovers and bad
shooting luck from the floor
for Bethlehem.
The last two quarters were
closer, as Paxton just barely
outpointed Bethlehem 19-
16 in the third period and
21-14 in the fourth. Never-
theless, the Bobcats were
all but unbeatable in the
time remaining, what with
Dustin Geohagan dropping
the hammer on four 3-point-
ers and Zessin's work in the
lane and free-throw accura-
cy. Despite taking the loss,
Bethlehem got solid work
out of its whole roster, with
all but one player getting on
the board at least once in
the game top scorers for
the Wildcats were Chase
Griffin and Devin Miller,
who each had nine points on
the night.
Another item of note at


the evening of double-head-
er games was a special half-
time presentation wherein
girls coach Steve Williams


presented funds raised at
the second annual Cats
Against Cancer event to a
representative of Baptist


Health Care's oncology de-
partment. Director of Can-
cer Service Donna Johnston
accepted a check for S3.000.


proceeds from admissions
at the three-day Christmas-
time classic, on behalf of the
Pensacola hospital.


BAPTIST HEALTH CARE'S DONNA JOHNSTON was

By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton Sea-
hawks suffered a pair of
close losses in b',.'- basket-
bal last week as the Boze-

basketball team raced to a
40-5 lead over Freeport on
Monday night as they im-
proved to 17-7 on the year
with a dominant 69-22 vic-
tory to sweep the regular

with 61points. Cody Pickren
took third in the 115-pound

The Orlando Magic's
Dwight Howard was named
the Eastern Conference
Player of the Week for
games played Monday, Jan.
16, through Sunday, Jan.
22. It marks the first time
this season and the 18th


time of his career that How-
ard has earned the league's
top weekly honor. Howard
averaged 19.5 points, 18.8
rebounds, 2.8 assists and
2.8 blocks as Orlando went
3-1. Howard posted three
point-rebound double-dou-
bles, including back-to-back
20-point, 20-rebound games
to close the week vs. the San


Antonio Spurs and Los An-
geles Lakers. For the sea-
son, Howard ranks first in
the NBA in rebounding (16.1
rpg.), third in field goal per-
centage (.575) and fifth in
blocks (2.33 bpg.).

BCC deals with Driftwood,

U.S. 331 bridge, trucks on

beach, and attorney issues


By DOTTY NIST
In a busy agenda on Jan.
24, county commissioners
made decisions on a number
of issues of community in-
terest. This was at the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) regu-
lar meeting on that morning
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex.
After being provided with
the recommendation of the
Highway 331 Blue Ribbon
Task Force and hearing from
a number of citizens, the
commissioners voted to fol-
low the panel's recommen-
dation by setting a public
hearing to consider setting
a May 15 voter referendum.
The purpose of the referen-
dum would be to let county
voters decide whether to au-
thorize the addition of up to
1 percent to the sales tax to
in order provide $75 million
in matching funds for a proj-
ect to expand the U.S. 331
bay bridge from two to four
lanes. This is due to the state
Department of Transporta-
tion indicating that more
than $100 million would be
provided to make the project
a reality, with the condition
of Walton County furnish-
ing the $75 million match.
The public hearing to
consider holding the refer-
endum is scheduled for the
next BCC regular meeting,
which is to begin at 4 p.m.
on Feb. 14 and take place
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex. Interim Coun-
ty Attorney Lynn Hoshihara
pointed out that the BCC
could at that time decide to
cap the sales tax increase to
be put on the referendum
ballot at less than one per-
cent if they so desired.
In other BCC business,
due to numerous complaints
and concerns about damage
to the beach in connection
with a geotube installa-
tion project by the Retreat,


the commissioners directed
staff to develop clearer poli-
cies and procedures for proj-
ects requiring sand to be
transported in and across
the beach. Sand had been in
the process of being trucked
from Grayton Beach to the
Retreat, which is in the
Blue Mountain Beach area,
resulting in large ruts in the
beach sand. One citizen de-
scribed the impact as mak-
ing the beach unusable for
beachgoers.
A county stop work order
was recently placed on the
geotube installation project,
which had been permitted
by the state Department of
Environmental Protection.
District 5 Commissioner Ce-
cilia Jones reported that she
has been meeting with the
project contractor to look at
alternate methods, some of
which would not involve the
use of trucks on the beach,
with the goal of avoiding fur-
ther damage to the beach.
She said the contractor had
agreed to remove a large
pile of dirt sitting on the
beach that had been taken
from the project site.
At the recommendation
of staff and legal counsel,
the commissioners voted
to extend until their next
meeting a previous move to
refrain from issuing build-
ing permits for properties
in Block G of the interior of
Driftwood Estates.
The vote followed a
lengthy presentation by
Shawn Heath, an attorney
representing Driftwood Es-
tates homeowners, and Alan
Osborne, president of the
Greater Driftwood Estates
Homeowners' Association.
County Administrator
Greg Kisela said that, af-
ter hours of discussions be-
tween the parties, there had
been a decision to recom-

BILLS NOW in the legislature could expand gambling throughout the state and have the
potential to impact the local area if approved. However, a concept for a small gambling/
entertainment facility at Sandestin Resort is now on hold due to Sandestin homeowners'
chilly response to the possibility.



Sandestin's casino


concept put on hold


By DOTTY NIST
Due to a lack of support
by \Sandestin homeowners,
San'destin Golf and Beach
Resort owner Tom Becnel
is no longer moving forward
with conceptual plans for a
casino at the resort.
Two bills now in the Flor-
ida legislature propose to
expand "limited gambling,"
including slot machines, to
"destination resorts" in the
state.
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
include not only slot ma-
chines but other games such
as roulette and craps. The
State Gaming Commission
would also have the author-
ity to allow any other game
of chance or wagering at its
discretion at the destination
resorts for which it would
license limited gambling.


If approved, the bill would
take effect on July 1.
Rather than the large
destination resorts that
would be made possible with
the bills as currently writ-
ten, Becnel has stated that
he would envision a small,
upscale resort gaming and
entertainment facility at
Sandestin.
In a letter to the editor of
a local newspaper, the re-
sort owner said he thought
it possible that the proposed
legislation would be revised
to provide for a number of
"smaller restricted gaming
licenses."
Becnel had pledged that
he would not move forward
on his concept without "a
high degree of community
support." On Jan. 10, he
addressed Sandestin horn-

Code Enforcement Board finds vending violation


By DOTTY NIST
David Kramer has been
directed to bring his CR-30A
office property into compli-
ance with county code by
discontinuing alleged vend-
ing operations from a tem-
porary trailer on the prop-
erty.
This was the decision of
the Walton County Code
Enforcement Board at its
Jan. 19 regular meeting at
the Walton County Court-
house Annex, following over
three hours of testimony
and discussion, during
which Iramer undertook a
spirited defense.
Walton County Code
Enforcement Officer J.C.
Alford testified that, after
being contacted about the
alleged vending operation
on Sept. 2, 2011, by Walton
County Planning and De-
velopment Services Direc-
tor Wayne Dyess, he visited
the property. He described a
temporary vending trailer in
place there bearing "Derek's
Pastries" and "open" signs.
Alford said he saw pastries
and other food products be-
ing dispensed from the win-
dows of the trailer. Alford


said he observed that utilt-
ies for the trailer had been
extended from the the office
building on the property,
Isle of View Realty, to the
trailer. He also presented
as evidence a Walton Sun
newspaper article about a
pastry/sandwich business at
the location by the name of
Derek's Pastries.
Alford explained that
roadside vending is gener-
ally permitted in the county
county under certain condi-
tions, with the exception of
properties located on the
Walton County Scenic Cor-
ridors, which includes CR-
30A.
He said he had observed
the alleged vending opera-
tion to be ongoing the day of
the code enforcement board
meeting.
Dyess testified that he
and other county staff mem-
bers had met with Kramer
to advise him how he could
come into compliance, which
would be by removing the
trailer from his property.
Among arguments made
by Kramer was that the
Walton County Land Devel-
opment Code does not define


"roadside vending," or, for
that matter, "roadside" or
"vending." There was agree-
ment by Alford and Dyess
that none of these terms
were defined in the code per
their knowledge. Clay Ad-
kinson, representing county
staff as an attorney on re-
tainer, also agreed to stipu-
late that the terms were not
defined.
Kramer testified that the
trailer was located behind
his office building over 100
feet from the roadway and
was screened on three sides
with vegetation. He con-
tended that, rather than a
vending operation, this was
an outdoor display of mer-
chandise. However, in re-
sponse to a question by Tom
Stein, code board chairman,
Kramer indicated that food
was sold from the trailer. He
added that his real estate
office houses an art gallery
and that the pastries and
sandwiches are also sold in
the office, along with bever-
ages.
Alford testified that it
had been Dyess' interpre-
tation as planning director
that the activity with the


trailer was roadside vend-
ing. Dyess commented that
he had used a "common
language approach" in the
decision. Adkinson advised
that, if Kramer were chal-
lenging that interpretation,
the proper venue for that
challenge would have been
the Walton County Zon-
ing Board of Adjustments
(ZBA). Kramer said he had
not been aware of that op-
portunity.
Stein asked Jerry Miller,
currently serving as the
code board attorney, if it
would be possible to con-
tinue the case in order to al-
low Kramer to seek a ruling
on Dyess' interpretation of
roadside vending from the
ZBA. "I would suggest that
that window is no longer
open," Miller replied.
Adkinson agreed that the
window of (oprportuinit for
the challenge of a planning
director's decision had ex-
pired 30 days from the date
of the decision. Kramer's
notice of violation had been
delivered on Nov. 3, 2011.
'This ordinance needs to
be fleshed out," Kramer said
of the measure disallow-


ing roadside vending on the
Scenic Corridor
He presented a composite
exhibit with images of oth-
er types of vending that he
predicted might be coming
to Walton County, among
those DVD rental machines
and ice machines.
Kramer also presented
a sample of how roadside
vending is defined in other
areas. In some areas, he
said, such vending is prohib-
ited outright, and in others
it is understood to be vend-
ing within the actual right-
of-way. The state, she said,
has no definition of roadside
vending but uses the term
"mobile vending."
Kramer explained that
he had begun selling pas-
tries made by a local chef in
his office in 2010. After los-
ing his job as pastry chef at
Sandestin Resort, the chef
had asked if he could be-
gin selling his pastries and
sandwiches outdoors from
the trailer, as well, Kramer
testified. Kramer said he
had agreed for this to occur
as long as it did not cause

no communication among
board members, directly or
indirectly, outside of board
sessions, on matters to be
considered by the board.
Communication includes
different forms, among them
written documents and e-
mails, he noted..
During sessions, Miller
commented, all statements
by board members should
be audible and relate to the
proceeding. Talking pri-
vately to the member next
to you, he warned, "leaves a
cloud on your credibility."
.He urged, "Everything
you say must be for the re-
cord.
"People should not have
access to you relating to
matters coming before you,"
Miller continued.
Miller also explained that
the law compels board mem-
bers to cast a vote, except
in a few situations. Being.
acquainted or friends with
someone involved in a case
does not rise to the level
of relieving a board mem-
ber of the responsibility to


vote, he said. However, he
explained, a situation that
would or might affect a
member's monetary "gain
or loss" would require the
member to abstain from vot-
ing. In such an instance, a
member would be required
to complete a form stating a
voter conflict, he said.
Miller told the board
members that their deci-
sions are not required to
meet the standard of no rea-
sonable doubt---but should
be based on "the preponder-
ance of the evidence," mean-
ing anything more than 50
percent. It is their task to
listen to testimony and de-
cide what is believable and
what is not believable, he
instructed them.
To be considered in a
decision, evidence must be
"competent substantial evi-
dence," he said, meaning
something that a reason-
able mind would accept as
believable.
County staff administer-
ing code are afforded a "pre-
sumption of correctness,"


Miller continued, and "it's
up to the respondent (al-
leged code violator) to re-
but."
Miller advised the mem-
bers against bringing any-
thing irrelevant into their
proceedings or asking "curi-
osity questions," as this may
result in their decisions be-
ing challenged on the basis
of bias.
Making a complaint one-
self or having the attitude
of wanting the community
"cleaned up" may work
against board members'
ability to hear cases in an
unbiased fashion, Miller
also warned.
"I would ask you to wear
blinders in the community,"
Miller challenged the board
members.
Members of the code en-
forcement board are ap-
pointed by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners and serve
on a voluntary basis. Some
board members had previ-
ously attended training ses-
sions in Orlando.

reminisce about the forma-
tion of the grass-roots wom-
en's club in April 2008 with
only six members. Today the
WRWF is flourishing as one
of Walton County's largest
political party associations.
Actively involved with
the National Association of
Republican Women and the
Florida Federation of Re-
publican Women (FFRW),
the WRWF is also active in
the community in its sup-
port of conservative political
leaders. Office holders and
candidates for local, state,
and national political offices
have met with the club at its
monthly meetings.
Flynt, who will serve as
2012 WRWF chair for state
and local issues, currently
serves as first vice president
for the FFRW, which has
more than 4,000 members.
"It's a huge federation,"
Schibler said of the FFRW,
"and to have Charlotte as
vice president is a great
honor."
As featured speaker for
the meeting, Flynt dis-
cussed the problem of Wal-
ton County being ignored by
the legislature because it is
a small county. "We have to
learn to build consensus,"


she said.
Flynt also spoke to the
need to carefully consider
the opportunity of the fed-
eral funding now available
to four-lane the U.S. 331
bay bridge. The county has
a decision to make regard-
ing local matching funds
that the state is requiring in
order for the project to pro-
ceed. A May special election
would be necessary in or-
der for voters to consider a
proposed 1-percent increase
in the sales tax that would
provide the matching funds
over a 10-year period. The
other option would be a toll
being placed by the state on
the new southbound bridge


section.
Flynt expressed appre-
hension that, with a toll,
local control of the bridge
would be lost. She also
warned that, if the county
does not agree to the proj-
ect now, the federal fund-
ing may never be available
again.
"All of you are a testa-
ment to good things going
on in the community," Flynt
concluded in addressing the
club members.
The next WRWF meet-
ing is scheduled for Feb. 15,
with Walton County Clerk
of Courts Martha Ingle to
speak on Walton County
history.

One thing Time doesn't do during snowbird season is stand still. Already another gen-
eral meeting of the Walton County Snowbirds looms. This one, scheduled for 10 a.m. Feb.
8 at the Destin Life Center Building of the Destin United Methodist Church located at 200
Beach Drive in Destin where hospitality is always gracious and where attendees may look
forward to a cup of coffee or Southern style sweet tea. An additional bonus comes in the
form of a warm welcome from dozens of vendors on hand to greet snowbirds and share with
them information about this the nicest of all places. It makes for such a convivial gather-
ing that one feels obligated to pause for a moment of regret for those who have yet to. find
their way to the Emerald Coast. The fun begins in the person of David Hall, vocalist and
keyboardist new to the Walton County Snowbirds, whose act features singing impressions
of greats including Louis Armstrong, Neil Diamond, Willy Nelson and Elton John. Past
President Nancy Gehrke will be on hand to call out winning door prize ticket holders. Club
president Bonnie Schwichtenberg advises early arrival, say ninish, to consort with your
peers, check out the vendor tables and partake of refreshment.
Golfers are visiting Randy Frith and Mike Callan in numbers each Monday morning at
Faith Assembly in response to a call to arms for the annual contest between Canadian and
U.S. golfing members of the Walton County Snowbirds who will tee off Thursday, Feb. 23
at the Fort Walton Golf Course. Men's President's Cup Chairman Frith anticipates a large
turnout for the U.S. players attempt to recover the cup that has been in the hands of the
Canadians for the past three years. For details, call Randy at 837-5324 or Mike Callan
at (609) 713-8314. While the men decide the cup's fate, Walton County Snowbird women
will gather concurrently at the Fort Walton Golf Course for the annual Women's Charity
Scramble. For details: rdbailey50@yahoo.com. Both events support Shelter House in Fort
Walton.
Fifteen hundred-and-fourteen years have passed since a pope declared Valentine's Day
a day to celebrate affection, friendship and love but still the day is as fresh as a mountain
spring. Many pay tribute to affairs of the heart with a heart-shaped box brimming with
chocolate. Walton County snowbirds go it one better. More than 150 of them plan to cel-
ebrate the day by adding an evening of dining and dancing in the style of courtly lovers
when they gather at the Sandestin Hilton Ballroom when the cash bar opens at 5:30 p.m;
dinner at 6:30 p.m. followed by dancing to the Mike Mancini Band until 10:30 p.m. To join
the party call Eva Mae Rice at (850) 543-7338 or get them at Registration on Mondays or
at the General Meeting on Feb. 8.
The snowbird blood drive is attracting a lengthy roster of contributors who will be on
hand Wednesday, Feb. 1 to donate blood to the American Red Cross. Questions? Call Con-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY. JANUARY 26. 2012


Art Cl p


L~ill~i( r tL t1il


For more than five years, the wedding indus-
try has been struggling on how to monitor itself,
while still promoting a positive image to all the
thousands of brides that make Walton County
their wedding destination. Finally, the industry
will combine their advertising and marketing,
with technology, to present a one-stop wedding
and event vendor directory.


For the more than 120
businesses in Walton Coun-
ty that make their living
from weddings and events,
it has been five years of not
knowing how to regulate
themselves, or how to con-
tinue bringing in thousands
of brides to the Emerald


Coast, when there has been
no support from any of the
government agencies. It has
been an ongoing task of try-
ing to market themselves,
and this area, to those pro-
spective brides, that had
possibly read something
negative, or not too flatter-


ing about Walton County.
After a "meeting of the
minds," and more than a
dozen different businesses
last Tuesday, those in at-
tendance decided to be pro-
active, and take the ball and
run with it themselves. The
creation of the South Wal-
ton Wedding Directory was
apparently the one avenue
that no one had discussed,
or investigated, until last
week.
With the group being
in unison, they all agreed
to take the next step and
become a unified business
presence in Walton County.
Already the largest reve-
nue-producing industry in
the county, business owners
have been struggling with
various problems on a coun-
ty level, but now with the
new website directory that
is currently in the works for
a release date sometimes
in March, progress is being
made.
For those that ponder
over the numerous sites and
locations to hold a party, a


FROM CADILLACS TO CORVETTES, vintage and antique cars will once again line the
lawn at Rosemary Beach, to take part in the 11th Annual Rt. 30 Antique and Vintage Car
Show. Owners of vehicles manufactured prior to 1982 are encouraged to apply. For more
information, or for entry application, log on to www.hilltopproductionsinc.com.


MARDI GRAS KREWES FROM around the South have already begun rolling in pa-
rades all over the Gulf Coast. Local Mardi Gras organization, the Krewe de Yak, will take
part in their first parade of the season on Feb. 11, with the Krewe of St. Andrews annual
parade taking place in Panama City.


wedding, a festival, shoot
a movie, conduct a talent
search, and so on, the new
directory will be a beacon to
them. It is the hope of those
present at the last meeting
of wedding and event in-
dustry owners, that now a
bride, a wedding planner, or
a producer, can click on the
Internet, find beach of south
Walton, and see at the top of
the Google search, the South
Walton Wedding Directory.
The directory would con-
sist of information that
would be helpful to anyone
looking to come to Walton
County, the beaches, or the
surrounding area. It would
be a complete rundown of
businesses that cater to spe-
cial events, and who pass
certain criteria, to be eligi-
ble to be on the directory.
Among the business list-
ings are wedding planners,
caterers, hair stylists, pho-
tographers, party rental
companies, florists, produc-
tion companies, pastors,
transportation, rental home
properties/management
companies, and so. The sur-
prise of this new website,
is that since the idea was
presented and then a mass
email and phone calls went
out to all interested busi-
nesses, many other busi-
nesses that are not directly
related to the wedding and
event industry, have wanted
to jump on the bandwagon.
Restaurants, hotels, bike
services, cleaning services,
nightclubs, golf courses,
fishing excursion boats, just
to name a few, have also
shown massive interest in
becoming part of the directo-
ry. Unknown to many, these
services entertain and also
provide places to get away
from all the excitement of
the "bride drama,' and pro-
vides guest with outlets for
food, spirits, and recreation.
This idea has sparked
much excitement in the
wedding and event indus-
try, since that particular
industry has not received
very much support in many
of the business owner's
eyes, from the county, or
the Tourist Development
Council. Praised by neigh-
boring county governments
and entities, the event and
wedding industry in Wal-
ton County once again saw
revenues and tax dollars top
$60 million in 2011, a figure
projected to be even higher
in 2012.

tory website, there are more
extensive plans in the near
future to promote these
businesses and services,
throughout the Southeast
and up the Eastern sea-
board. Marketing tools such
as television, billboards, ma-
jor market newspapers and
magazines, bridal shows,
and several other outlets for
marketing, are also being
considered at this time.
Event and Wedding in-
dustry owners know that
the market for brides, com-
ing to the Emerald Coast,
is astounding. Now that the
threat or at least the scare
- of oil-stained beaches from
the BP oil spill has subsid-
ed, the number of brides,
wedding planners, produc-
ers and others interested in
having an event on the coast,
has considerably grown over
the past few months.
It is also no surprise that
bookings and wedding per-


nlits for 2012, and even into
2013, are already seeing
higher rates than in 2010
and 2011. The event and
wedding industry is ready
and is now taking it on
themselves to no longer fight
the county and the various
proposed ordinances that
have been in the works for a
better part of five years, and
just get their names and
services out to the national
public, themselves.
Despite the fact that
the idea has just been con-
ceived, and plans are in the
early stages, more than 60
county businesses have al-
ready signed up to take part
in the South Walton Wed-
ding Directory, and those
numbers are continuing to
grow each day. Organizers
are currently taking bids for
the web design and hope to
have a decision on the web
designer/creator, by the time
they meet again on Feb. 7.


THE SOUTH WALTON COMMUNITY Yard Sale re-
turns to the lawns of Seaside, Feb. 11, beginning at 7 a.m.
Everything from paintings and pottery, to refurbished fur-
niture and fishing lures, can be found at the yard sale that
attracts thousands each year.

concerns as to whether there
were potential violations in
connection with open space
requirements and stormwa-

However, he admitted that
he did not go to county plan-
ning to talk about the plan
in advance.
"He's trying to feed his
family," Kramer said of the
chef.
Kramer said that he had
researched roadside vend-
ing and that most of the
information he found inidi-
cated that to be-votsidered
roadside vending, an.opera-
tion would have to be in the
right-of-way or on the actual
side of the road. He said he
had hoped that what was
occurring on his property
would be considered an out-
door display of merchandise
rather than roadside vend-


ing.
Kramer questioned
whether the pursuit of his
case did not constitute se-
lective enforcement, but Ad-
kinson countered that there
was no evidence that some-
one "similarly situated" had
been treated differently.
Kramer said he hoped
that others would be noti-

of their opportunity to chal-

Tom Stein said it did not
seem to him that more than
100 feet from the roadway
meant "roadside." However
there were also comments
that this could not be an

place from the trailer. Board
member Richard Fowlkes
questioned whether, if this
was not roadside vending,
it should be considered an
additional business on the
property.

THE DLeFUN1AK P!':INGS IHLR.LD BREEZt-EZ THL R DAY,. \LUARY 26.2012


IT'S MARDI GRAS MAMBO TIME! Once the band cranked up the popular Mardi Gras tune, it didn't take !,,ng before
the line was formed and the napkins were being tossed into the air.


NOBODY LIKE "FLY THE sax man," could pump out the
tunes and make you feel like you were sitting in the middle
of Bourbon Street. This was the second year in-a-row that he
and the Yak Attack entertained guests.


KREWE MEMBERS ANGELA SHAW AND WAYNE
CHARLES served as bartenders for the gala. Many volun-
teered their time to bring it all together.


THE YAK ATTACK got the crowd on their feet as they played throughout the night. The band consist of a group of
award-winning Emerald Coast musicians, who come together once a year to perform for the gala.

CHUCK HINSON

For the second year in-
a-row, the Krewe de Yak
Masquerade Ball brought
a crowd of people into De-
Funiak Springs and the
Shriners Club, for another
evening of dancing to Zydeco
music, sampling a wide vari-
ety of appetizers, the Mardi
Gras mambo, bead toss, and
a silent auction. All this ac-
tivity was part of a bigger
endeavor, raising money for
the Muscogee Indian Food
Bank in Bruce.
More than 60 revelers
made their way through
the food lines, silent auction
lines and the cash bar, to
celebrate Mardi Gras sea-
son, which officially start-
ed just six days after New
Year's. Items up for auc-
tion came from artists like
Charles Hinson, Ma r. Kay
Samouce, Charl:-- Lawson,
the Soap Peddler, and the
Walton County Art League
and Walton County Porce-
lain Society.
Other items were donated
from krewe members, Hotel
DeFuniak, B,-ie-,.'s Restau-
rant & Bar, Hilltop Produc-
tions, Frank's Cash & Carry,
and many krewe members.
Tlir,,uh,,ut the evening,
the items were auctioned off
and the krewe was able to
raise nearly $400 and take
22 bags of r i-. -rk- and


non-perishable items to the
local food pantry.
As iri previous years, the
Yak Attack Band kept the
party moving with a lively
playlist, mostly Zydeco and
Cajun. But it was the "Mar-
di Gras Mambo" that got the
crowd on its feet and doing
the popular Louisiana line
dance.
The band, made up of
some of the best musicians
in the Florida Panhandle,
collaborated for the second
year in a row, to play some
of the most authentic Cajun
and Zydeco music this side of
the Mississippi River. M1a n'.
agreed from last year's and
this past weekend's Mardi
Gras gala, that the Yak At-
tack Band should be pla'-ing
in Ner.v Orleans, and defi-
nitely be "raising the roof'
at a Bourbon Street water-
ing hole.
A plethora of appetizers
were served, that many of
the krewe members made
for the event. Several dishes
were prepared and donated
by caterers and restaurant
owners, including Para-
dise Catering, the Eventful
Planner and B1iuN M..i inTa.in
C ir-nri'rrt inky's Restau-
rant. Of course no Mardi
Gras ball would be ( -,rnplbte-
without the traditional King
Cake, with the plastic baby
stuffed inside a purple, gold
and Jr-rin drizzled cream
cheese cinnamon bun.


Thinking of Mardi Gras
and carnival season, it is
no surprise- to imagine lav-
ish costumes and men and
women dressed to impress.
At the Mardi Gras Gala, one
would not be disappointed.
From beaded gowns aiin
over-the-top Mardi Gras
masks, to shiny tuxedoes
and costumes of characters
that spanned a century, the
evening was definitely more
of a fashion show, than a
charity ball.
Of course those attending
didn't have to worry about
bringing the "bling." The
krewe provided that as well
- beads, moon pies, masks,
doubloons, and crowns,
symbols of Mardi Gras and
trinkets that the guests did
not have to fight for like the
would if they were attend-
ing a New Orleans, Panama
Ciry Beach, or Mobile Mardi
Gras parade.
Each person in atten-
dance received each of those
items and a card of appre-
ciation for taking part in the
second annual event.
The Krewe de Yak hosts
the annual event, and will
continue being involved with
area charities and other city
Mardi Gras. They travel to
Panama City on Feb. 11 for
the Krewe of St. Andrews
Parade, and then to Pana-
ma City Beach/Pier Park,
for the Krewe of Dominique
Parade.
