Variance discussion

opens up varied

opinions from citizens


By ALICIA LEONARD
The second half of the
Feb. 6 DeFuniak Springs
Planning Board meeting
was centered around citizen
and board discussion over
variance procedures and
how citizens are notified of
issues that might impact
their neighborhood.
At the Jan. 3 planning
board meeting, discussion
occurred regarding the vari-
ance process and- when and
how public notices are sent.
According to approved min-
utes from that meeting, it
was the consensus of the
board for DeFuniak Springs
City Planner Greg Scoville
to research and bring back a
recommendation at the Feb.
6 meeting for the board to
consider.
During the second half of
the. Feb. 6 planning board
meeting, board members
looked over a mock draft of
a possible change in noti-
fication of a variance. The
mock-up used a past vari-
ance request for a residen-


tial change coming in front
of the planning board on Feb.
6 and the notice of a public
hearing at the next sched-
uled DeFuniak Springs City
Hall on Feb. 13, leaving sev-
en days between the plan-
ning board's decision and
the notice of public hearing
over their recommendation
at the next scheduled Coun-
cil meeting.
Scovillle told the board,
"This draft is to notify peo-
ple of upcoming planning
board meetings before the
fact, as well as sending out
one notification instead of
two. We're limited in staff
and I know the people need
to know when these meet-
ings are taking place, but
what we looked at was com-
bining these two notices
into one notice and moving
it to a point and time in the
notification framework so
we could do both notices, for
the planning board and the
City Council public hearing.

Local man recalls



World War II



military service


By JEFFREYPOWELL
At 26 years old, Ponce
De Leon resident Lewis El-
bie Hardy was a little older
than some of the other re-
cruits around him in Febru-


ary of 1942, but he was still
a young man. As he stepped
onto a train in DeFuniak
Springs little did he know
what the next few years had
in store. He and thousands


of other soldiers were about
to witness the fall of Adolf
Hitler and his Third Reich.

the crowd and spoke of some
future projects that could
possibly draw more visitors
from other areas. One such
idea is Snowbird Day, Feb.
23. Snowbird visitors will
be welcomed and treated to
coffee and entertainment

and the newely formed De-
Funiak Springs Economic
Development Tourism Com-
mittee


Comander spoke of pos-
sibly future events, such as
a movies night at the lake-
yard "we are really work-
ing on that," she said and
a possible barbecue contest
utilizing the lakeyard as
well. "We'd like to see at
least one event a month to
draw visitors," she added. A
"First Friday Night" artist
event was also mentioned
as a possibility,.
The DBPA has been a
friend to local business since
1989 when it was known as
the Downtown Merchant
Association and they are re-
sponsible as well for raising
all the funds needed for the
Fourth of July celebration
that residents look forward
to each year.

WCSB meets in


special session


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB) met
for a special session Jan. 24
to rank and select the top
three firms for construction
management for new class-
rooms for Emerald Coast
Middle School, as well as
personnel recommenda-
tions, approval for band in-
strument bids and the pre-
qualification of contractors.
The board quickly ap-
proved two contracts on
their consent agenda unani-
mously. The contracts were
between the Walton County
School District and Kathy
Oropallo for Leadership Plan
Development and Leader-
ship training and approval
of contract for legal services
between the Walton County
School Board and attorney
Ben Holley for an extension
of one year commencing on

The board then moved
onto their action agenda.

were approved unanimous-
ly. Facilities construction

injured

on U.S. 90

A DeFuniak Springs driv-
er was critically injured in
an accident that took place
on U.S. 90 at 7:30 p.m. on
Feb. 2. The Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) report states
that Glenn Royce King, 52,
of DeFuniak Springs, was
driving his vehicle east on
U.S. 90. For "unknown rea-
sons" the vehicle drifted into
the westbound lane, then
onto the northern shoulder
of westbound U.S. 90, even-
tually striking a fence locat-
ed at Spiced Apple Farms.
After striking the fence, the
vehicle continued another
49 feet before coming to a
stop.
King was taken to Sacred
Heart of Pensacola with
critical injuries. No other
persons or vehicles were
involved. The FHP report
states that King was wear-
ing a seatbelt and that al-
cohol was not a factor. No
charges are pending.


which was a list of seven
that met requirements, re-
ceived unanimous approval
of the board. The board then
went on to approve band in-
strument bids to the lowest
and most responsive bidder,
unanimously.
The board then moved to
rank construction compa-
nies as follows; Number one
- Elkins Constructors, Lord
and Son Construction as
number two, and two com-
panies, Ajax Building Cor-
poration and LLT Building
Corporation tied for third.
The board reconsidered and
agreed to re-rank the tie as
Ajax coming in third and
LLT being fourth. The rank-
ings were approved unani-
mously.
The next regularly sched-
uled board meeting will be
held Feb. 14 at 9 a.m. with
a workshop meeting follow-
ing at 10 a.m. and an execu-
tive session being held at
11:30 a.m. Readers can find

DFS Planning Board


recommends approval of


new structure at Thriftway


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak Springs
Planning Board met for
their regularly scheduled
monthly meeting Feb. 6 to
review a request by resident
and business owner J.W.
Adkinson, as well as discuss
variance notification proce-
dures.
Adkinson submitted a
request to the board for
a permanent open-sided
structure to replace por-
table tents used by groups
doing fundraising for chari-
table causes. Groups in the
past have often put together
barbecues in the parking
lot of Adkinson's business,
Thriftway Supermarket, for
residents in need. Adkinson
submitted photos similar
to the structure he was re-
questing, as an open-sided,
steel building designated as
a 18 feet by 21 feet accesso-
ry structure. The structures
are advertised to be able to
handle 120 and 130 mph
wind loads. The area where
the building is proposed to
be located in within a C-1
Commercial Restricted Dis-
trict and Historical District.
The Historical District part
of the property only houses
a parking lot for the super-
market at this time.
The board was advised by
their attorney Clay Adkin-
son and DeFuniak Springs
City Planning Director Greg
Scoville that they would


have to make three motions
to recommend the request to
the DeFuniak Springs City
Council. They would need to
grant a variance change to
the zoning appendix regard-
ing sales made from trucks,
wagons or roadside stands,'
they would need to make a
change to the variance for a
C-1 Commercial Restricted
District, and lastly, they
would need to recommend
an approval for a certifi-
cate of appropriateness for
the Historic District. The
planning board also had to
set the number of feet the
structure would be set back
as well other restrictions as
to placement.
Planning board mem-
ber Lee Thomas voiced his
thoughts on the request,
"He's been doing this for so
long, helping people with
this, I think it's a good thing.
The structure is such that if
the city sees that it is an is-
sue or there is a problem it
can be moved. Also, I think
it's a good idea to allow
these charities to sell right
where they are. I think it's
good for our community and
I think we ought to consider
approving all three of the
items."
After more discussion, the
board moved to recommend
the request for approval on
all three items from the City
Council with a requested
five-foot setback from the

sidewalk for the structure.
The vote for recommenda-
tion was unanimous.

The second half of the
meeting, over variance pro-
cedure recommendation will
be detailed in a second ar-
ticle.
Agendas and items of
interest concerning the De-
Funiak Springs Planning
Board can be found at the
city web site at www.de-

regularly scheduled time
Feb. 13 at 6 p.m. at city
hall.

THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS Planning Board recommended a similar structure as the
one pictured above for approval to the DeFuniak Springs City Council per request of resi-
dent and business owner J. W. Adkinson. Adkinson requested approval to build the perma-
nent structure to replace temporary tents used by groups that hold sales in the parking lot
to raise funds for those in need.

Are All




Bets Off?

By BRUCE COLLIER

You doubtless have read that on Jan. 31, Washington and
Gadsden County voters approved slot machine gambling
limited to the Ebro Greyhound Park and Creek Entertain-
ment, Gretna, respectively. The celebrations were cut short
almost immediately by the Florida Attorney General's "not
so fast" opinion letter, expressing legal doubt that such ac-
tivities can be allowed and permitted by voter referendum,
except in two south Florida counties. The governor is going
to follow the A.G.'s advice, so no permits are being issued
for now. Supporters of the referendum have promised'to
take it to court.
Almost simultaneously, the much-debated state gam-
bling bill has sunk in the House, though not without a
trace. Its sponsor has vowed to keep up the fight, and get
the debate going. And so it goes.
As for the slots, is it unfair to suggest short-sightedness
for people to go to the trouble of drafting and holding coun-
ty referendums (which costs money) without first checking
into their threshold legality? Surely someone might have
consulted the A.G. in advance on this. Her "sucks-to-be-
you" opinion came so hard on the heels of the voters' deci-
sion that it might have been drafted, oh, I don't know, in
advance, maybe?
Lawyers know that anyone wishing to make something
a "test case" first has to have legal standing, meaning that
courts don't decide theoretical cases, just those affecting
real people's rights. I wonder if the Washington and Gads-
den County voters and business people foresaw that? Judg-
ing from their reactions hiring has already begun- the
answer seems obvious. In their trusting simplicity, they
figured that, hey, we voted, it passed, we won, let's bring in
the slot machines. Apparently no one told them this is just
the opening salvo in what promises to be a long, and drawn-
out series of court battles. And, if the A.G. is correct, and
current state law only allows this kind of thing in two coun-
ties, all these referendums were was an exercise in futility,
and not a free one either.
No -wonder voters get so cynical about the workings of
government. To expand upon the old saying, it ain't over 'til
it's over, but how in the Sam Hill do we ever know when it's
over? Even Kenny Rogers wouldn't know when to hold 'em
here....

Dear] Walton County,
I have noticed throughout my safety readings that Flor-
ida leads the nation in Pedestrian Fatalities. We also lead
our region in workplace fatalities according to the National
Safety Council. The weather will be very nice soon and
people of all ages, shapes and sizes will be on our roads and
walkways. A new safety campaign called "See The Blind'
spots" provides a new take on pedestrian and bicyclist
awareness.


(To) Kebby:
Very timely subject! The foot traffic in Circle Dr. is reach-
ing dangerous proportions. Walkers insist upon walking in
the street, when there are two perfectly usable sidewalks
available.
Twice in recent weeks there has been an individual navi-
gating Jackson Street, after dark, on a motorized wheel-
chair, dressed in drab clothing must have a death wish or
a thorough lack of common sense.
Motorists don't drive on the sidewalk. Foot traffic should
not stroll in the street.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9,2012


Editor:
With everything from wars, economic troubles and un-
employment, we do have a local issue that impacts us and
we may have an actual choice in the outcome. I offer sev-
eral thoughts based on published accounts of the choices
provided in respect to building a new U.S. 331 bridge over
Choctawhatchee Bay. I also spoke to two members of the
Task Force established to study the issue and were kind
enough to return a phone message.
First, how is $100 million suddenly made available from
federal funds, administered by the state, to the building of
a second bridge on U.S. 331 over the bay? There has been
no mention of who championed and won this bounty or why
such a short time frame has been allowed for local funding
options and acceptance. The Florida Department of Trans-
portation has consistently stated this project and funds
were not on their radar, now it is suddenly on top of a prior-
ity list for 2013. The obvious question is who benefits from
fast action and taxpayer money (follow the money.) The
stated need for hurricane evacuation is solid to a point. We
still have a two-lane U.S. 331 and a choke point to SR-20,
I-10, U.S. 90. Utilities expansion has consideration clout. If
water is to flow south and sewer waste north, the proposed
bridge would have significant advantages to utilities opera-
tors (follow the money and pipe installations.) If utilities
benefit by bridge construction, they and subsequent users
should contribute an equitable share for forgoing environ-
mental and construction costs associated with other options
to cross the bay.
Some comparison have been made to the operations of
the Mid-Bay Bridge Authority (MBA),in. Okaloosa, County.
The MBA was established independently with financing,
construction and maintenance. Tolls are established by
the MBA and now include coverage for the "by pass" route
through Eglin Reservation. The MBA was touted as a nec-
essary hurricane evacuation route that stalls at SR-20. In
reality, the MBA opened east Destin for development and
now includes a "by-pass" road that allows access to private
land development east of Niceville. MBA tolls have been
paid for years by workers living in north Okaloosa and Wal-
ton counties finding work in Destin.
A thought about taxes, the 1 percent county-wide gar-
bage collection tax was passed by the Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) after voters rejected it in a referendum.
Apparently, no estimate of garbage collection costs was
considered. While agreeing with the need, execution of this
plan lacked all common business sense. Accounting meth-
ods published for pubic review are at best understandable


Editor:
The 2012 Florida Chautauqua Assembly has to be spot-
lighted as the "best ever," due in large part to the involve-
ment of the Walton County School District. The Braves
Bistro Culinary Art Classes, under the direction of teacher
Cheryl Sallee, did a superb job of providing 750 outstand-
ing meals throughout the entire four-day, conference-style
event for families. Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort &
Spa provided the funding to purchase a great deal of the
food, and the students did all of the work as a "Chautau-
qua Challenge" to provide conference-quality meals. Linda
Daniel of Walton High School, provided all of the on-site
coordination between all of the meals.
In addition, the.students of the Walton High School An-
chor Club accepted a "Chautauqua Challenge" of providing
all of the well-orchestrated faculty support needed for our
entire four-day program. Under the direction of their advi-
sor, Johnnie Kay Ealum, they communicated with all of our
faculty, including Gregory Garland of our U.S. Embassy in
Cape Verde (off the coast of West Africa) and David Hawk
of the Federal Highway Administration, to insure that all
of the Assembly classrooms were adequately equipped for
presentations. This included audiovisual equipment, mi-
crophones and logistical coordination of each presenter.
Our guests and faculty have provided "standing ovation
after standing ovation" to all of the participating students
and the Walton County School District for the professional,
polite and well-orchestrated support each student, staff
and School District leader provided to make the 2012 event
the most successful. The Board of Directors of the Florida
Chautauqua Center join in providing this ovation, which
is also extended to Superintendent Carlene Anderson, Ta-


only to those who made them. The actual amounts collected
by the tax appear to equate to 50 percent of that expended
to the garbage franchise. The BCC has re-directed residual
garbage collection taxes to other uses, "road and bridges,"
per a member of the Bridge Task Force who asked this
question of the county.
Gas taxes, intended for roads and bridges, are higher in
Walton County than neighboring counties with much lower
gas prices.
Apparently the BCC has the ability to "roll-over" from
the land-fill reserve fund (1 percent garbage tax?) and other
reserves to purchase a new radio system that some emer-
gency responders have already opted out. This is not in-
tended to discount the need for the radio system, but rather
point out the ability of the BCC to re-direct existing funds
to a perceived need without new taxes.
Comments about tourist paying 60 percent of sales taxes
in Walton County fail to realize that this is not relevant
to residents who are tasked to provide 8 percent sales tax
as the highest in the state. The published statement by a
county commissioner that the garbage collection tax can-
not be re-directed is ludicrous, as it has been done by the
BCC that enacted it without voter approval.
This should not be a north versus south county issue.
Residents travel south for jobs. People living in the south
end enjoy improved access, county offices annexes, and oth-
er amenities provided by separate taxing authorities; i.e.,
fire, mosquito control, and subsidized home owner's insur-
ance.
Historically taxes are necessary and accepted for educa-
tion, national defense and, the exercise of foreign affairs by
the federal government. On a local level, taxes seem to take
a life form to be used in a way deemed necessary by the
emergency of the moment.
In summary, the proposal for an increase of any addi-
tional sales tax for a sole use purpose should not be con-
sidered with other options available. The BCC does have
reallocation authority with existing tax funds. Multiple
projects have been accomplished recently, including a new
county jail. (after down-town fiasco), 5-star animal shelter
(tour office areas), court house renovations, recreation fa-
cilities, and boat ramps to name a few and welcomed by
most. With a questionable rush to decision timing, it is very
disappointing that the BCC Finance Director can only offer
two options, toll or tax. Minus another option, a true user's
tax, toll charge, should be established.

Editor:
I found it very troubling to me as a Christian when I
received a newsletter from Florida Senator Marco Rubio
as to what is now popping up out of the ObamaCare bill
that Nancy Pelosie had boldly stated "We will have to pass
the bill to see what is in it." It is inconceivable some of the
things that they have hidden in this 2,000 plus page bill.
Rubio stated that on Tuesday, Jan. 31, he introduced the
Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012. A bill to repeal
a new ObamaCare mandate that violates the religious lib-
erties and conscience rights of faith-based institutions by
forcing them to offer employees insurance coverage for con-
traceptives.
Rubio had previously spoke with talk show host Laura
Ingraham and penned an op-ed underlining the importance
of this bill and the fight to protect religious liberties. Marco
released the following statement in concurrence with his
bill.
"The Obama Administration's obsession with forcing
mandates on the American people has now reached a new


low by violating the conscience rights and religious liber-
ties of our people," said Rubio. "Under this president, we
have a government that has grown too big, too costly and
now even more overbearing by forcing religious entities to
abandon their beliefs. This is a commonsense bill that sim-
ply says the government can't force religious organizations
to abandon the fundamental tenets of their faith because
the government says so."
Too bad Rubio's not running for president, but I'm
thankful we have men like him in the Senate to help fight
against these unconstitutional bills. I hope and pray we
get a president come 2012 that will help get our nation
back on track hopefully by putting prayer and bible read-
ing back in schools, the Ten Commandments back on the
courthouse walls, and the constitution returned back to it's
rightful state, and repealing Obamacare. Otherwise we
will no longer be the great nation our founders have laid
out for us. God Bless Americ

Straughn Extension Professional Development Center dedicated at UF


Alto Straughn, a native
Floridian, was born and
raised in the New Harmo-
ny community in Walton
County in 1934. He is the
son of Curtis and Annabell
Straughn. His childhood
years were spent farming,


hunting,' fishing and ac-
tively participating in 4-H.
He attended Paxton High
School where he played
basketball and was very ac-
tive in FFA. After graduat-
ing Paxton High School in
1952, he attended the Uni-


versity of Florida, where
he was equally active as a
student in the Department
of Animal Sciences, joining
the livestock judging team,
working in the department
and conducting sheep re-
search.


DR. ALTO STRAUGHN


After graduating from UF
with a master's degree in an-
imal science, he joined UF/
IFAS Extension in 1959 as
an agent in Marion County.
Three years later, Straughn
received a fellowship from
the Kellogg Foundation to
attend the University of
Wisconsin and complete a
doctoral degree. He returned
to Florida and once again
joined UF, this time as an
Extension State Specialist.
He rose rapidly through the
ranks and became director
of program evaluation and
organizational development
in 1971. He was instrumen-
tal in developing statewide
planning and reporting sys-
tems and was a pioneer in
using computers to enhance
Extension's response to cli-
ent needs.
Straughn never lost his
love of farming. When he re-
tired from UF/IFAS in 1989,
he became a full-time farm-
er. He has been very success-
ful in developing beef cattle,
blueberry, watermelon, and
timber farming operations.
Straughn's leadership and
forward-thinking vision in
blueberry production have
been vital to the success of-
Florida's blueberry indus-
try. He has worked closely
with UF/IFAS researchers
to conduct blueberry variety
trials and-demonstrate new
production .technologies,
resulting in about 20 per-
cent of all the blueberries
in Florida. He was also the


USDA Announces CRP general sign-up


first north Florida farmer to
produce seedless watermel-
ons on a large scale.
Straughn and his wife
Patrecia have a long his-
tory of philanthropy. They
have been University of
Florida Foundation donors
since 1984. Gifts to UF/
IFAS Extension include the
Alto Straughn 4-H Exten-
sion Professional and En-
hancement Award and the
Alto and Patrecia Straughn
Extension Educational Im-
provement Award. He has


also funded graduate stu-
dents for research in the
fields of apiculture, plant pa-
thology, and food and nutri-
tion. Their most recent gift
is the Straughn Extension
Professional Development
Center that was dedicated
Jan. 12, 2012.
Straughn was inducted
into the Florida Agriculture
Hall of Fame in 2008 and
received the Commissioner's
Agricultural Environmental
Leadership Award in Octo-
ber 2011.


U FLORIDA.

THE STRA UGHN EXTENSION PROFESSIONAL DE-
VELOPMENT CENTER was named after Dr. Alto Straughn
for his commitment and dedication.


Acting Under Secretary
for Farm and Foreign Ag-
ricultural Services (FFAS)
Michael Scuse. announced
Feb. 1 that the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture (USDA)
will conduct a four-week
Conservation Reserve Pro-
gram (CRP) general signup,
beginning on March 12 and
ending on April 6. CRP has
a 25-year legacy of success-
fully protecting the nation's
natural resources through
voluntary participation,
while providing significant
economic and environmen-
tal benefits to rural com-
munities across the United
States.
"It is USDA's goal to
ensure that we use CRP
to address our most criti-
cal resource issues," said
Scuse. "CRP is an impor-
tant program for protecting
our most environmentally
sensitive lands from erosion
and sedimentation, and for
ensuring the sustainability
of our groundwater, lakes,
Rivers, ponds and streams.
As always, we expect strong
competition to enroll acres
into CRP, and we urge in-
terested producers to maxi-
mize their environmental
benefits and to make cost-
effective offers."
CRP is a voluntary pro-
gram available to agricul-
tural producers to help them
use environmentally sensi-
tive land for conservation
benefits. Producers enrolled
in CRP plant long-term, re-
source-conserving covers to
improve the quality of wa-
ter, control soil erosion and
develop wildlife habitat.
In return, USDA provides
participants with rental
payments and cost-share
assistance. Contract dura-
tion is between 10 and 15
years. Producers with expir-
ing contracts and producers
with environmentally sensi-
tive land are encouraged to
evaluate their options under
CRP. Producers also are en-
couraged to look into CRP's
other enrollment opportuni-
ties offered on a continuous,
non-competitive, signup ba-
sis.
Currently, about 30 mil-
lion acres are enrolled in
CRP; and contracts on an
estimated 6.5 million acres
will expire on Sept. 30,
2012.
Offers for CRP contracts
are ranked according to the
Environmental Benefits In-
dex (EBI). USDA's Farm
Service A "-i.i v (FSA) col-


lects data for each of the EBI
factors based on the relative
environmental benefits for
the land offered. Each eli-
gible offer is ranked in com-
parison to all other offers
and selections made from
that ranking. FSA uses the
following EBI factors to as-
sess the environmental ben-
efits for the land offered:
Wildlife habitat benefits
resulting from covers on
contract acreage;
Water quality benefits
from reduced erosion, runoff
and leaching;
On-farm benefits from re-
duced erosion;
Benefits that will likely
endure beyond the contract
period;
Air quality benefits from
reduced wind erosion; and
Cost.
Over the past 25 years,
farmers, ranchers, conser-
vationists, hunters, fisher-
men and other outdoor en-
thusiasts have made CRP
the largest and one of the
most important in USDA's
conservation portfolio. CRP
continues to make .major
contributions to national ef-
forts to improve water and
air quality, prevent soil ero-
sion by protecting the most
sensitive areas including
those prone to flash flood-
ing and runoff. At the same
time, CRP has helped in-
crease populations of pheas-

ants, quail, ducks, and other
rare species, like the sage,
grouse, the lesser prairie
chicken, and others. High-
lights of CRP include:
CRP has restored more
than two million acres of
wetlands and ,two million
acres of riparian buffers;
Each year, CRP keeps
more than 600 million
pounds of nitrogen and more
than 100 million pounds of
phosphorous from flowing
into the nation's streams,
rivers, and lakes.
CRP provides $1.8 billion
annually to landowners-
dollars that make their way
into local economies, sup-
porting small businesses
and creating jobs; and
CRP is the largest private
lands carbon sequestration
program in the country. By
placing vulnerable cropland
into conservation, CRP se-
questers carbon in plants
and soil, and reduces both
fuel and fertilizer usage. In
2010, CRP resulted in car-
bon sequestration equal to
taking almost 10 million
cars off the road.
In 2011, USDA enrolled
a record number of acres of
private working lands in con-
servation programs, work-
ing with more than 500,000
farmers and ranchers to im-
plement conservation prac-
tices that clean the air we
breathe, filter the water we

Administration, with Agri-
culture Secretary Vilsack's
leadership, has worked tire-
lessly to strengthen rural
America, implement the
Farm Bill, maintain a strong
farm safety net, and create
opportunities for America's
farmers and ranchers. U.S.
agriculture is currently ex-
periencing one of its most
productive periods in Amer-

productivity, resiliency, and
resourcefulness of our pro-

This would require a couple
of other things to consider.
One, if the Council would
go ahead and allow staff to
set that public hearing date

Scoville told the board
that they were looking at

prior to the planning board
meeting. They also looked
at narrowing down the no-

reasoned that many amend-
ments such as large, small
scale and rezoning are lim-
ited to 500 feet. "I'm just
making a recommendation on

Scoville added.
DeFuniak Springs resi-

came up," she asked. Board-

requested the information
and said, "I do not want to

munity." Thomas mentioned
that he was concerned that
many times people with in-
formation about the issues
that come before the board
do not make it to meetings
due to not having notice of
knowledge of the meetings.
"It seems like the letter
should go out automatical-
ly, within a certain period
of time, from the time they
make application."
Cole responded that many
variances and processes are
different. Thomas agreed,
but thought that rules re-
sponding to length of time
for different requests made
it more difficult for people to
understand and partake in
the process. Cole explained
that she believed the city
should be more vigilant in
getting public notices out
to citizens of upcoming civic
meetings. "Informing the
public about the 'planning
meeting objective is one is-
sue, and I am very much in
agreement with that. Tell-
ing the people, and there is
a vast difference between
the public notices published
in the DeFuniak Herald and
from the city than what is
published in the south end
of the county. In the south
end of the county you know
what is going to happen.
I hope there is going to be
some improvements in that
area. I'd also like to say 15
days notice does not give
fair legal representation to
the citizens. They will not
have time to research the
variance request or organize
as citizens." Cole told the
board that it recently took
two weeks just to gather pe-
titions on an issue.
DeFuniak Springs Plan-
ning Board attorney Clay
Adkinson added another
twist to the conversation
when he told the audience
that the planning board did
not hold public hearings on
variance, but the City Coun-
cil did. "For public hearings
we do advertise and publish
them so that adds another
item where different items
are handleded differently
by code." Adkinson added
that the notices seen by
Cole were most probably by
the county and came under
different rules governed by


LEE THOMAS, DEFUNIAK SPRINGS Planning Board
member, discusses the pros and cons of notification times
and possible streamlining of the application process for
variances and public notices for construction affecting resi-


dents.

that entity. Adkinson added
that although many of the
meetings by the planning
board were not considered
public hearings, the public
was encouraged to attend
all meeting.
"Here we are making rec-
ommendations withouthear-
irig from the people in that
neighborhood and I just felt
like that was inappropriate
and wanted to clean up some
of these inconsistencies and
make a recommendation the
City Council look into doing
these things," Thomas add-
ed to the conversation.
Scoville suggested asking
the Council to workshop, so
the Council could weigh in
on the issue. Cole added to
the idea, "and the citizens."
Scoville agreed, "of course."
"I'm just trying to find a
happy medium," Scoville
added saying he often hears
complaints from applicants
that the process of vari-
ances and such take too
much time. Cole replied
that it took time for citizens
to prepare themselves for
such issues. She then asked
Scoville what method was
used to determine there-was
confusion regarding the dif-
ferent hearings and such.
Scoville responded, "Ex-


perience, people come to
the planning board meet-
ing and think an issue has
been put to bed just to find
out that they needed to go to
the Council meeting, and for
whatever reason they didn't
know about it and they
were furious that that was
the final decision." "I think
that could be rather easily
cleared up in The Herald,
Cole told the board, "I will
end with a plea: look in The
DeFuniak Herald. What
is published there (legally
required public hearing
notices) is not squat. It is
numbers and such, with no
explanation. I am pleading
with you to help the people
know what is going on."
After much more conver-
sation on publishing of legal
notices and public hearings,
the board moved to continue
the discussion on the issue
and ask Scoville to approach
the Council and request a
workshop. The Herald will
continue to follow this issue
and report on future plan-
ning board meetings and
possible workshops. Agenda
and minutes of meetings,
that the public is encour-
aged.to attend can be found

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRII ARY 9, 2012


This week, Alabama Re-
publican Senator Shadrack
McGill defended a 61 per-
cent pay raise for his posi-
tion, while claiming that
any increase in teachers'
salaries 'was "unbiblical."
McGill argued that based
upon Biblical principle, cer-
tain people are "called" to
teach, and increasing the
salary would attract way-
ward, unprofessional career
nomads with no interest in
children. "If you don't keep
that in balance, you're going
to attract people who are
not called, who don't need to
be teaching our children. So,
everything has a balance"
he said.
To address Sen. McGill, I
would first bet he has never
set foot in a classroom af-
ter leaving North Alabama
Community College, where
he "attended" but did not
graduate, and therefore has
no basis from which to de-
termine a teacher's calling.
As he so eloquently stated
in an interview, "To go in
and raise someone's child
for eight hours a day, or
many people's children for
eight hours a day... I know
I wouldn't want to [teach],
OK?"
As he has never had the
desire to work (or stay) in ed-
ucation, what would McGill
know about an educator's
calling? Having worked in
this profession for only sev-
en months (as a high school
English teacher), I can put
the senator's mind at rest: if
a teacher does not love teach-
ing children, he/she would
not stay no matter what
salary was offered. Teach-
ing is not a 7 a.m.-3 p.m. job
that ends when the last bell
rings. Teaching follows you.
Those students follow you-
on the ride home, as you
pick up your own children,
as you are cooking dinner,
you worry about more than


their grades on the next
homework assignment or
standardized test. Teach-
ers wonder what they are
eating tonight. Is someone
there when they get home?
Does someone tell them,
"I'm proud of you. I love you,
and your best is more than
good enough." Does some-
one care enough to ask how
their day was? Do they get
to see both parents, or any
parents? Are they raising
themselves and siblings?
What causes the pain in
their eyes, the shyness, the
tough exterior, the tears
behind their notebooks, the
absences for days? Teach-
ers care, Sen. McGill, which
is why they work for a frac-
tion of your "public service"
salary. Speaking of McGill's
salary, the Alabama State
Senate webpage touts the
politically precise figures
that legislators' salaries are
determined as $10/day, plus
per diem options of $50/
week, and $4,174 per month
with a cost of living raise
every April. Roughly, that
works out to a little more
than $50,000 plus a retire-
ment and benefits pack-
age-a salary most teachers
would be thrilled to consider
since the average starting
teacher salary is in the low
$30,000-range ($31,386 in
Alabama; $33,427 in Flori-
da). However, budget-trans-
parency websites explicitly
detail the annual salary
for a senator is $174,000.
Wouldn't teachers be
thrilled to see that in their
salary schedule?
Of course, McGill, has
loftier principals than be-
ing "called" to service based
on salary, and I'm sure that
$174,000 is inconsequential
to him. In fact, the 61 per-
cent increase in senators'
salaries, McGill said, will
better help politicians ward
off temptation and corrup-


tion in the form of evil dol-
lars from lobbyists. To aid
int his pursuit of the straight
and narrow, McGill should
more fervently apply to him-
self the Biblical standards
to which he holds teachers:
lead because he is called to
lead. He has demonstrated
his calling to be a public ser-
vant, and in the interest of
that servitude, why not for-
go his salary and benefits?
Based upon his principles
("teachers that are called to
teach, regardless of the pay
scale, they would teach"),
the joy of serving the people
as an incorruptible politician
will be benefit enough. And
the retirement package-
for which he is fully vested
after five years, whereas
teachers wait six to eight-
why would he ever want to
retire from his calling?
Though, I suppose dur-
ing his retirement he could
work on his spelling (judg-
ing from his Facebook posts,
his spelling teacher was one
of the 'uncalled"). While
on Facebook, he could be-
come the number one fan
of the "Teachers make too
much money!" page, which
explains: "It's time we put
things in perspective and
pay teachers for what they
do baby sit! Let's give them
$3/hour and only the hours
they worked. Each parent
should pay $19.50 a day
for these teachers to baby-
sit their children. That's 30
children, 180 days per year.
Wait, that is $105,300 per
year! As for special educa-
tion teachers and the ones
with Master's degrees, pay
them minimum wage; wait,
that's $280,800 per year!"
Oh, and as you're digest-
ing this Sen. McGill, remem-
ber to calculate that high
school teachers are called to
babysitt" 100+ kids per day.
As you may notice, a pay
scale commensurate with
an educator's value would
be nearly impossible to de-
termine, whereas a salary
commensurate with a poli-
tician's value, well, call any
math teacher: he/she will be
glad to give you a finger-
er-figure.


Sacred Heart stroke


support group to meet


Have you or someone you
loved suffered a stroke? Sa-
cred Heart Hospital on the
Emerald Coast hosts a free
Stroke Support Group that
meets on the second Mon-
day of every month. All
stroke survivors, caregiv-
ers and family members are
invited to attend this group
to learn more about stroke,
share experiences and be-
come inspired to keep mov-
ing forward after surviving
a stroke. Most meetings
take place on a Monday,
the next meeting will take
place on Monday, Feb. 13 at
3 p.m. in the Suite 3 confer-
ence room at Sacred Heart.
This month, Dr. Christopher
Skowlund will present about
"Using Neuro-Radiology to
Detect and Treat Strokes."
Facilitated by Jan
Stanko, spouse and' care-
giver for a stroke survivor;
Tami Huston, occupational
therapist; and Mia Lawson,
speech therapist with Sa-
cred Heart Rehabilitation;
the Stroke Support Group
gives survivors and caregiv-
ers an opportunity to share
their experiences and gain
strength and knowledge
from others who have been
through a similar event.
A stroke can be very iso-
lating for both the stroke
survivor and the caregiver.
Each stroke survivor faces a
unique set of disabilities and
losses, and each copes with
them in his or her own way.
The Stroke Support Group
helps address these issues
and connects survivors and
caregivers with a supportive
community.
For more information
or to join the new support
group, call (850) 278-3600.
The stroke support group is
one of the many community
classes and support groups
hosted by Sacred Heart Hos-


pital on the Emerald Coast.

Millions could overlook


valuable tax credit


Millions of workers could
overlook a special federal
tax credit because they
don't know about it. As a re-
sult, they could miss out on
up to $5,751 extra in their
federal income tax refunds
through the Earned Income
Tax Credit, or EITC. Last
year, on average, the credit
boosted refunds for eligible
workers by $2,100.
"This money can make a
real difference to workers
struggling in this recover-
ing economy" said Kendra
Zamojski, Family and Con-
sumer Sciences Agent with
the University of Florida
Walton County Extension
office.
Anyone earning $49,078
or less from wages, self-em-
ployment or farming in 2011
should see if they qualify.
Eligible workers must file
federal income tax returns-
even if they are not required
to file-and specifically must
claim the credit to get it.
Many people will qualify
for the first time this year
due to economic changes in
their income or changes in
their marital or parental
statuses according to the
IRS. The agency estimates
four out of five eligible work-
ers currently claim their
EITC.
"We want to raise that to
five out of five," Ms. Zamojs-
ki said. "They earned it.
Now they need to file, claim
it and get it."
Workers can get free help
determining their EITC
eligibility and claiming the
credit.
Walton County sites will
operate at Jobs Plus in
DeFuniak Springs and at

ly determine EITC eligibil-
ity and prepare returns, in-
dividuals should bring:
Photo proof of identifica-
tion;
Social Security cards for
themselves, their spouse
and all dependents or So-

cation letters issued by the
Social Security Administra-
tion;


Birth dates for all persons
listed on the tax return;
Wage and earning

W-2G, and 1099-R, from all
employers;
Interest and dividend
statements from .banks
(Forms 1099);
Copies of their prior year
federal and state returns, if
available;
Bank routing and account
numbers for direct deposit
of their refunds;
Other relevant informa-
tion about income and ex-
penses;
Amounts paid for day
care, if applicable, and the
day care provider's identify-
ing number.
Both spouses must be
present to sign joint returns.
Anyone paid to prepare fed-
eral income tax returns is
required by law to sign the
return and enter their Pre-
parer Tax Identification
Number.

"EITC is a financial boost
for working people in a re-
covering economy and al-
lows more funds to flow
within your community. It's
money that can make lives a
little easier," Ms. Zamojski
said.

production of

methamphetamine

Freeport man arrested for


burglary and battery on

The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) arrested
Britton Wayne Bush, 34, of
Freeport, Fla. for burglary
and battery on a law en-
forcement officer.
The WCSO investigation
began Feb. 5 after deputies
received information that
Bush allegedly entered a
Freeport residence without

Bush into the garage area
of the residence as he con-
.tinued to make threatening
remarks to the residents.

rest, Bush struck a deputy.
A taser was deployed as a
means of less-lethal force to
affect the arrest.

(| On .Feb. 2, the Walton
County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) arrested Jamie
Hopkins, 31, and Veronica
/ Dunsmore, 21, both of Red
Bay, Fla., on methamphet-
amine drug charges.
The investigation began
Feb. 2 after Investigator
Josh Martin and Investiga-
JONES tor Lloyd Skipper conducted

Deputy Matt Key and
Kayne, a certified narcotics
detection canine, arrived
ITY shortly after and conducted a
probable cause search of the
AR vehicle after Kayne alerted
the deputy of the possible

peared to be approximately
two grams of methamphet-
amine and chemicals com-
monly used to manufacture
methamphetamine.
Hopkins was arrested for
felony violation of probation
and felony driving while li-
cense suspended as.a habit-
ual offender. Deputies re-
covered what appeared to be
drug paraphernalia on Hop-
kins' person at the time of
arrest. Following Hopkins'
arrest, a search warrant
was executed at the home of
Hopkins and Dunsmore, the
passenger of the vehicle.
During the search of the
residence located at 739

dence.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2012


Economic Development Alliance Board fills vacancy


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Walton County
Economic Development Al-
liance (EDA) Board meet-
ing of Feb. 2 in the County
Administration Building,
Managing Director Scarlett


Phaneuf reported that a
formal letter of resignation
from board member Neal
Wade has been received, but
that no recommendations
for a replacement have been
submitted by this board.


The only other nomina-
tion is that of Ed Gardner,
Power South Economic De-
velopment Representative,
a resident of south Walton
who has said he is willing to
serve. A motion to appoint


HARDY as a young Army soldier.


HARDYIS JOINED by his brother, Orval, in the top right photo. They were in Germany
at the time.



SE RV C E CONTINUED FROM. PAGE 1-A


took Hardy to Camp Bland-
ing, near Starke, Fla. Camp
Blanding was a reception
center for new recruits and
Hardy was assigned to a
field artillery group. Within
three weeks he was on his
way to Camp Shelby, Miss.,
for basic training and ad-
vanced artillery training.
He was also exposed to ma-
neuvers training and small
arms instruction. He stayed
nearly two years there be-
fore being called to Mas-
sachusetts, to board a ship
bound to England. From
there Hardy and several
thousand allied troops were
about to assault a French
beach near Normandy. He
was among the second wave
to go ashore.
"Normandy was rough go-
ing," said Hardy reflectively.
"The Germans threw a lot of'
stuff at us and tried to push
us back in the sea. A lot of
soldiers lost their lives on
that beach. My unit was for-
tunate, we did not have as
many people killed as other
units."
After surviving Norman-
Ly, Hardy's unit advanced
through northern France
where the civilians "lined
the streets like we were in
a parade," he remembered.
Hardy also recalled coming
across a World War I bat-
tlefield and cemetery. "All
those graves were so neatly


lined up."
"I think World War I had
a lot to do with the way
World War II turned out,"
Hardy said. "That made Hit-
ler mad. He wanted Germa-
ny to have more power and
prestige. He thought it was
honorable but it was not."
Also while in France,
Hardy saw many cities re-
duced to ruin such as Co-
logne 'and Aachen. "Only a
couple of churches were left
standing."
As his unit neared Ger-
many they had to cross the
Rhine River an a pontoon
bridge. Soon he was involved
in the battle for central Eu-
rope and a harrowing couple
of nights.
"That last battle was re-
ally rough," said Hardy.
"If people could have seen
the tracers they would not
believe it. It was kind of
beautiful except that it was
deadly. War and battle is
hard to explain. People do
not understand the constant
danger."
After this deadly fight
Hardy's unit took many pris-
oners and he and two other
soldiers were in charge of
transporting them to an-
other area. The trio were
stopped by military police
and told only two men were
supposed to be riding in the
cab. Hardy then joined the
prisoners they were carry-


ing in the back.
"I had to ride with the
prisoners," he said smiling.
"They were nice to me and I
was nice to them. I realized
they were just in the service
like I was."
Hardy had a chance to go
to Berlin after the fighting.
but decided he just wanted to
come back to Walton Coun-
ty. He, was afraid if he went
he might step on a mine and
never get home. His family
members are glad he made
that decision and treasured
his return and his service to
his country.
"While helping Uncle El-
bie organize his war photos
and mementos I became in-
trigued by his stories of war
and fear," said Hardy's niece
Karen Butts. "I truly believe
stories such as Uncle Elbie's
need to be heard and appre-
ciated."
Hardy ultimately fought
in five major battles and at-
tained the rank of T-5 tech-
nical corporal. He was hon-
orably discharged in late
1945 and returned home.
Later this month he will be
celebrating his 96th birth-'
day. He is very proud of
serving his country but ad-
mits to being afraid of never
coming back to the States.
"I was scared from the
start to the finish;" he said
with a grin.

Gardner to the board was
approved.
In other business: board
member Lori Kelley pre-
sented the financial report
for the Walton County Eco-
nomic Development Council
(EDC) Business Park Fund,
for which there was little ac-
tivity, and for the EDA. The
EDA receives financial sup-
port from Walton County,
and the cities of DeFuniak
Springs, Freeport and Pax-
ton. In January EDA sup-
porting funds were received
from the county and from
the city of Paxton. Money is
on hand to start doing the
things that the organization
has budgeted for this year.
According to Phaneuf,
the city of Freeport has ap-
proved its local agreement
and its funding agreement
and will remit its EDA sup-
porting funds upon receipt
of an invoice. Plans were in
place to present both agree-
ments to the DeFuniak
Springs City Council on Jan.
23, but because of feedback,
the presentation has been
delayed until the scheduled
Feb. 13 meeting, thus pro-
viding more time to speak to
Council members.
Phaneuf informed the
board that Jim Breitenfeld
of the Okaloosa County EDC
who heads up the five-coun-
ty (Escambia, Santa Rose,
Okaloosa, Walton and Bay)
Northwest Florida Defense
Coalition that supports mil-
itary activities in this area,
contacted Kitty Whitney of
the Walton Area Chamber
about a February forum in
Miami. He thinks the Coali-
tion should,have a presence
at the forum where the full
sponsorship is $5,000. He
has asked each of the coun-
ties to contribute $1,000 to-
ward the sponsorship. Whit-
ney has asked EDA to bear
a $500 share of the cost. The
board approved sharing the
cost with the Chamber.
Phaneuf told the board
that Southern Wines and
Spirits has delayed selecting
a contractor for their project
to locate a -facility in Free-
port because cost estimates
were higher than antici-
pated. They are waiting for
engineering revisions before
they choose a contractor. A
90-day delay is projected.
Phaneuf also reported
that Waste Management has
signed a one year renewal
on the lease where they are
currently located. So, they
will be making plans to ex-
pand later this year.
Board Attorney Clay Ad-
kinson broached the subject
of a policy decision to decide
whether to sell, lease or give
away land to promote job
creation. He informed the
board that feedback from
two members indicated that
a hybrid policy between sell
and lease was preferred and
that appraisals of property
should be done beforehand.
He told the board that cost
issues when land is given
away should be considered
and that the issue of "tire
kickers" looking to get some-
thing for nothing should be
addressed. Another issue to
be addressed is a provision
for approving, by a unani-
mous or. super majority


'ice is free and available to residents of Walton County


vote of the board, propos-
als deemed good for Walton
County, but which do not
meet the state's qualified in-
dustries criteria.
Phaneuf introduced the
subject of applying for a
USDA Rural Development
grant to conduct a study to
identify which of the state's
targeted industries are a
good fit for Walton County
resources. Dr. Louis Mc-
Daniel thinks a study of this
type would cost $50,000.
USDA probably would con-
tribute about $10,000 and
there would probably be an
in-kind match of $10,000
from the University of West
Florida's (UWF) Haas Cen-
ter. EDA's cost would then
be as much as $30,000. In
addition to the Haas Center,
Florida State University's
(FSU) Center for Economic
Forecasts and Analysis does
this kind of work.
A motion to get quotes
from the Haas Center and
the Center for Economic
Forecasts for the cost of a
study to identify industries


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:

I went down to City Hall today just to check out the new
rules on business and residential signs. Yep, the door is
wide open in residential areas, including the Historical Dis-
trict. I live in the District only because one of six houses on
the block qualifies and is listed in the historical directory.

So I have ordered a "No Tax, No Toll" 4 by 8 ft sign
to express my freedom of speech on the bridge (not the
highway which I support), and will have it up on display
sometime next week. I plan to eventually have it lighted for
night viewing and will have a few shrubs for landscaping.
A few years ago I had a large political sign up but had to
take it down when a neighbor of a different political persua-
sion complained. It violated the city ordinance. My new sign
will not violate the new ordinance. DeFuniak citizens voted
for "change" at the last City Council election. The new sign
ordinance is a product of that change.
After the 331 issue is over, one way or the other, I will
then have space to express my political support for candi-
dates in the November elections. Isn't freedom of speech
and expression just wonderful without government regula-
tion?

Editor:
1. At this time believers are clearly being parted from
those walking in doubt and unbelief. The latter cannot drop
old bad habits learned form the past. I call this a genera-
tional curse upon ourselves, nation and world. Those that
walk without faith can expect nothing from the Lord Jesus,
our Father and Savior. When confronted with God's full
truth unbelievers immediately become defensive, stand off
and become judgemental and critical of those openly and
honestly trying to follow God, His Word and His Holy Spir-
it. This is because they want to turn back comfortably to
old, evil and sinful ways. God always uses a man or a very
few to accomplish his will and purposes on earth. Examples
are Moses, Elijah, Gideon, David, Abraham and many other
examples nearly everyone know about.
2. I believe our nation is poised for a miracle to be
blessed by God. Our .Republican candidates for president
all have vast knowledge and experience desperately needed
by Christians, The American people and the world. By all
staying in the race the full truth is being provoked to the
surface for all to see and the American people will know
without a doubt the right choice and course of action. Also
our Congress and all elected public servants will be encour-
aged to do the right thing.
3. Let's pray for each other that we'll each have the cour-
age to please God rather than compromise with the crowd
that needs our help and most of all God's help. Let's remem-
ber God is no respecter of persons and we all need help and
prayer.
Sincerely
William B. Webster
New Harmony Community

Phaneuf reported that
work is still active on the
brewery and the small chem-
ical manufacturing plant
projects. EDA has helped
the companies proposing
these projects to submit ap-
plications to UWF as cash
incentive economic develop-
ment projects. This is the
first time UWF has admin-
istered applications of this
type. Progress is slow and
the clients are frustrated.
A resolution to delays may
come within the month.
According to Phaneuf
the Board of County Com-
missioners' ability to offer
ad-valorem tax abatement
to new and expanding busi-
nesses expired in 2010. To
reinstate the program, it
must be approved in a vot-
er referendum. It could be
added to the ballot for the
August primary or for the
November general election.
The board will consider this
issue and decide what action
to take at the next meeting.

The year did go by very fast,
As the night, turns into dawn.
You are gone, our love will stay,
Till all eternity has no end.
We always loved day by day,
And never once did it every bend.
You will always be in my heart,

And in our space we will never part,
For our love will always be.

Dear Auntie Em,
I finally broke down and
let my kids adopt a dog. We
are very happy with the
puppy, but we are having
a hard time house training
him and it is beginning to
frustrate me.
I don't want to disappoint
the kids, but I don't know
how much longer I'm going
to be OK with my cleaning
it up all the time. Do you
have any tips or tricks for
making it easier on all of us?
Thanks!

Dogged out in Defuniak
Dear Dogged,
We have to remember
that puppies are babies and
they have a hard time con-
trolling themselves some-
times. They get excited and
have accidents, but there
are some things you can do.
The first thing I would do
is buy your puppy a crate
they can call their own. I
think crate training is one of
the best ways to house train
a pet. When you can't be at
home and make regular trips'
outside, the puppy needs to
be in their crate as well as
overnight. Puppies won't do
their business where they
sleep and eat usually, un-
less they just can't hold it.
You can put a training pad
or newspaper down in the
crate. There will be lots of
whining at first, but stick
with it and don't treat the
crate as punishment for
the puppy. Make it a happy
place, with toys, water and
bedding as well, and make
sure it is big enough to hold
these items. When you let
the puppy out of the crate,
make sure going outside to
use the restroom is the first
place you take the puppy
and then praise them to


high heaven when they do
their business or give them
a treat. Make this a part
of their routine. Just like
kids, they need a routine
and feel safer when they
have one. Also remember
that the younger the puppy,
sometimes the harder it is
for them to have control, so
it's not all their fault, they
need \Iou and your kids to
help them and look to you
for guidance.
When you are home, put a
training pad close to the door
you take the puppy out of to
use the restroom and then
make regular trips outside,
like every hour, till they get
the idea. Pretty soon your
problem will be in the past
and your dog will be a happy
part of the family and you'll
be happier too. It takes a
little patience and time, but
most all dogs pick up pretty
quick. The crate, praise and
a regular schedule can work
wonders for this problem.
Good luck and God bless.

When Martha Speaks,
kids listen! Every week,
Maude Saunders fourth
graders team up with a
Kindergarten "buddy" to
watch an episode of Martha
Speaks, an educational show
on PBS. The children learn
new words as they laugh at
the adventures ofMartha the
talking dog and her friends.
The fourth graders then
read a story that goes along
with the lessons learned in
the show. Together they
create a project and learn
new vocabulary words, as
they discuss the story and
the lessons learned. Maude
Saunders Reading Coach
Sonya Merchant teamed up
with WFSU to bring this ex-
traordinary opportunity to
the school, and both the "big
buddies" and the "little bud-
dies" agree it is an adven-
ture every week. A special
Martha Speaks celebration


will be held at the school on
the evening of March 22.
All MSE Kindergarten and
fourth grade students are

L'j~~s;it/J


invited to come spend time
with their buddy, partici-
pate in reading activities,
and meet the real Martha.

Highway 90 on Laird Road. Laird Road is west of Mossy Head just
before the Okaloosa County line. Grace Community is a church com-
mitted to historical Southern Baptist principles and believes that the
Church is called, not to reflect its culture, but to shape it. We believe
that faith must be lived as well as affirmed, therefore, right living de-
rives from right believing. We hold to a high view of Scripture believ-
ing the Bible as our final authority and that it "stands in judgement of
us, never do we stand in judgement of it." Sunday morning worship
begins at 9:45 a.m. with Sunday School at 11 a.m. and evening bible
study at 6 p.m. Friday night home Bible study at 6:30 p.m. If you are
tired of playing church, come help us shape the culture where we
are "learning God's will one verse at a time."

The Sound of Silence

By Ronnie McBrayer


The Singing Echoes to be at First

Baptist of Liberty, February 12


It is golden. It is a virtue.
It is more musical than any
melody, rest for the mind,
and sometimes it has the
loudest voice. It is often
the best possible answer, a
friend that never betrays,
and it is the subject of a
classic Simon and Garfun-
kel song. And, frankly, I'm
not very good at it: Silence.
I make a living using
words putting them on pa-
per and screen and ejecting
them into the air so being
quiet is, by default, not my
specialty (though a few en-
thusiastic readers beg me to
shut up almost every week).
My mind suffers from At-
tention Deficient Disorder,
it moves quickly between
tasks, and the words con-
stantly spewing from my
mouth or keyboard and the
busyness of my schedule'
confirm this diagnosis.
STruly, I wish it was dif-
ferent for me. I havealways
envied those who are quiet
and meditative by nature,
those who can eagerly hide
in the stillness, and those
who can retreat for days at
a time into the calmness of
contemplation. How I wish
I was more like Thomas
Merton, the Desert Fathers
of old, or the preacher E.M.
Bounds who spent four hours
a day every day in silent
prayer. That is my wish, but
that is not my reality or my
nature.
I'm busy. I'm torn. I'm
shooting at multiple tar-
gets all the time with little
chance of developing into a
Henry David Thoreau. I also
have three young sons, writ-
ing deadlines every week,


and a speaking and blogging
schedule that sometimes
make me wince.
The closest I get to con-
templation is sipping my
coffee in the early morning.
And if I get lucky really
lucky I might get a mo-
ment of spiritual retreat
with a walk in the woods,
the only sound being the
crunching snow beneath my
feet and thumping of my
pulse filling my ears.
But, we ADD-types need
some quiet here and there.
We need to subdue, our
minds and soothe the chorus
of voices inside our heads.
But how? How can we, who
are nothing like, say, Moth-
er Teresa, find the soothing
sound of spiritual silence?
I can only return to a story
involving Jesus and two sis-
ters.
SThe two sisters were
Mary and Martha who
hosted Jesus in their home.
Mary was a venerable St.
Benedict, placid and peace-
ful, sitting at Jesus' feet in
silence. Meanwhile, Martha
was in the kitchen shaking
and baking, jumping and
jiving, busting her can while
the more brooding types
breathed the ether of seren-
ity.
Martha's own ADD mind,
being in overdrive as it al-
ways was earned from Je-
sus an understanding, gen-
tle rebuke. He effectively
said (and I am paraphras-
ing here), "Martha, relax.
It's okay to be busy, dear
one, but don't overdo it. Yes,
do the few, important things
well; but let the rest of it
go."


Ronnie McBrayer


This is a prescription
written by Jesus' own hand,
for all us Martha-types who
need a little less talk and
a lot more contemplation:
"Chill out. Take a walk. Lin-
ger, over.your coffee a few
more minutes each morn-
ing." We are not so impor-
tant that the earth will
swing off its hinges if we
don't complete everything
on our to-do list.
Yes, we who are the hard-
driving, multi-tasking, goal-
orienting, noise-making,
word-emitting Martha's of
the world would do well to
learn the discipline of noth-
ingness. By creating times
of vacancy and empty space
on our calendars and in our
lives, we might not be trans-
formed into spiritual mys-
tics, but we might discover
that God is easier to hear,
for in the quiet places God
will certainly speak.
In the stillness the uni-
,verse might whisper in our
ears. In the calm of morning
coffee the divine could be
revealed. A simple walk in
the woods may well unlock
your heart. Sitting softly in
the dark for a time of prayer
could possibly reorient your
life.
.None of these things are
exceptionally spiritual on
their own, but they build
a discipline of listening si-
lence, and the sound of si-
lence can be a beautiful
sound indeed.


The Singing Echoes will
be at First Baptist of Lib-
erty on Sunday, Feb. 12,
2012 at 2 p.m. The church
is located, at 6775 U.S. 331
N (in Liberty) in DeFuniak
Springs, Fla. For more in-
formation or directions, call

is Coming, He Will Move the

on Feb. 12 and enjoy these
great musicians and sing-
ers. A love offering will be

St. Agatha's offers Centering Prayer Workshops


Many frequently think of
prayer as thoughts or feel-
ings expressed in words.
This is only one type of
prayer. Centering Prayer
is a method of silent prayer
that. assists us to open our
awareness to God whom we
know by faith is within us.
This type of prayer does not
replace other types of for-
mal and informal prayer.
Centering Prayer simply
casts a new light and depth
of meaning on them. It is a
discipline to foster a rela-
tionship with God.










Send/


If anyone would like an
introduction to, and some
practice with, this type of
prayer, consider being part
of a group with a similar
goal. St. Agatha's Episcopal
Church will offer a course
on Centering Prayer each
Saturday at 10 a.m. dur-
ing Lent (2/25, 3/3 through
3/31). Priests and pastors
are welcomed as are Center-
ing Prayer novices from any
denomination.

The only cost for the
course is for the book (J.


David Muyskens, Sacred
Breath, Forty Days of Cen-
tering Prayer, Upper Room,
$12). Participants will read
2-3 pages and practice Cen-
tering Prayer daily between
classes and meet to discuss
their experiences and re-
ceive further instruction
each Saturday.
For questions, call 892-
7452. To register, give name
and contact information to
the answering machine at
892-9754. Participants will
be contacted and a book will
be ordered for them.

Freeport Outlasts South Walton 100-98


King's Basket at Buzzer Downs Paxton 78-77


By PATRICK CASEY
What a week to be a Free-
port Bulldogs boys basket-
ball fan!
Freeport closed the 2011-
12 regular season with a 27-
hour spree of fast-paced bas-
ketball that saw the teaiA


defeat South Walton 100-98
in one of the highest scoring
contests in Walton County
history, then get a basket
from junior Caleb King as
time expired off of a missed
three-point attempt by Col-
lin Myrick to stun the Pax-


a~i


FREEPORT'S COLLIN MYRICK(20) launched this
three-point shot in an attempt to win the game versus Pax-
ton in the final seconds. While his shot was off-target, Caleb
King(30) grabbed the rebound and banked in a short shot at
the buzzer for a 78-77 victory. (Photo by Patrick Casey)

ton Bobcats 78-77.
Against the Seahawks,
Freeport trailed 20-19 after
the first quarter only to pull
away for a 45-39 halftime
lead as Myrick lit up their
rivals to the south with 20
first half points. Teammate
Austin Woodard picked up
the barrage in the second
half as he scored 28 of his
41 points over the final 16
minutes of the contest as
the Bulldogs needed every
point to get the win. Woo-
dard, who had nine assists,
also had five steals, the last
a knock-away from a Sea-
hawks dribbler that wound
up in Myrick's hands to deny
the Seahawks a chance to
tie or win the game on their
final possession with just
under six seconds left in the
game.
The Seahawks battled re-
lentlessly as Edward How-
ard scored 27 points before
fouling out in the final sec-
onds of the contest. Senior
Shafer Martin added 16
points with Bish Waldrop
providing 13, but freshman
Paxton Dixon was the star
on the night as he scored
28 points with several deep
shots from behind the arc to
keep South Walton within
striking distance until time
expired.
Both teams ,shot better
than. 50 percent from the
floor as the game resembled
a track meet for most of the
night. Freeport handled the
pace well despite dressing
only eight players but had
to scramble to get Clayton


Jones into his first game
since December when Ca-
leb Piasecki and Caleb King
both fouled out in the third
quarter. Jones, who had
a key basket in the fourth
quarter, also provided help-
ful rebounds while spell-
ing Cody Smith late in the
game, the team's only other
reserve eligible to play.
Freeport hit 20-of-31
shots in the second half of
play and 37-of-65 on the
night from the field to keep
the scorekeeper busy for
the home team. South Wal-
ton countered with 23-of-39
shooting from the field over
the final 16 minutes as they
posted a 36-of-71 mark for
the entire contest.
Fans for both sides cre-
ated a raucous, playoff-like
atmosphere that was aided
by Freeport's holding of Se-
nior Night activities before
the game. Myrick finished'
the contest with 27 points
and sophomore Gabe Moore
turned in an outstanding
performance with.24 points,
12 rebounds, eight assists
and two steals.
Woodard, who would tune
up the Bobcats for 38 points
on Friday night, scored 79
points over that 27-hour
period in one of the more
impressive scoring perfor-
mances over a two-game pe-
riod.
Good shooting was also
on display in the regular
season finale for both teams
on Friday night when Pax-
ton traveled to Freeport to
meet the Bulldogs in the


second meeting of the year
between the two squads.
Paxton's Dustin Geogh-
agan hit eight of his ten
three-point shots in the
first half to spark the visit-
ing team to a 47-38 halftime
lead.
Woodard countered with
22 points of his own in the
first half with Myrick drill-
ing three shots from long
distance himself to keep
Freeport close.
Chad Zessin did most
of the scoring in the third
quarter for Paxton as he had
nine of his 28 points during
the eight-minute period to
keep the Bobcats ahead by a
58-53 margin.

The Bulldogs took advan-,
tage of 22 Paxton turnovers
and some sharp shooting in
the fourth quarter to close
the margin to one in the fi-
nal seconds of play as Woo-
dard and Gabe Moore kept
the offense chugging.
Zessin, who is a very good
free throw shooter for a cen-
ter, missed the front end of
a one-and-one with Freeport
grabbing the rebound to set
up the final possession of
the game. After a timeout by
coach David Burke, Myrick
launched a three-point shot
with six seconds left that
missed, got deflected into
the arms of Caleb King who
scooped up the ball and laid


it in from the right side of
the goal as time expired to
earn the Bulldogs a cardiac
win.
Paxton, which defeated
Freeport 73-68 (minus Col-
lin Myrick who was in New
York City that weekend)
on Dec. 8, deserved a bet-
ter fate as the Bobcats hit
10-of-14 free throws on the
night but struggled to find
much offense out of anyone
other than Geoghagan and
Zessin.
Myrick finished the night
with 21 points while Moore
added nine with the home
team hitting 8-of-9 free
throws in the contest.
"That was a pretty good
week of basketball," Free-
port coach David Burke said
after the Paxton win. "We
could have run the table if
we would have made our
free throws against Walton
on Tuesday night."
The Bulldogs (17-10) will
host the District 2, Class 2A
boys basketball tournament
this week and will face Hol-
mes County at 7:30 p.m. on
Feb. 10 if they defeat North-
view in an opening round
contest on Feb. 7.
Paxton(19-6) awaits a
semi-final against the win-
ner of the Central-Poplar
Springs opening round con-
test in Poplar Springs in the
District 1, Class A tourna-
ment on Friday night.


SOUTH WALTON'S EDWARD HOWARD scored 27
points for the Seahawks but the road team could not rally
from an early deficit as they fell to the Bulldogs for the sec-
ond time in three games this season. The Seahawks finished
the regular season with a 12-13 record. (Photo by Patrick

Freeport's McCormick and Head sign football



scholarships with Tusculum College


By REID TUCKER
For the past several years,
Freeport High School has

destined for collegiate-level
competition and this year is
no exception, as Caleb Mc-

football enabled them to get
educational opportunities.
"We are really prqud of

"They did a great job for us.

Walton Boys Post 3 Victories


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves boys
basketball team earned
three wins in five days last
week to finish the 2011-12
regular season with a 10-14
record. Walton picked up a
66-60 win at Panama City
Arnold, a 53-52 squeaker
at Crestview and an 88-84
overtime victory in Free-
port.
The contest against the
Bulldogs was one of the
stranger between the: two
teams as Walton jumped out
to an 18-0 lead, fell behind
39-35 at halftime, regained
the lead at 60-53 after three
quarters only to fall behind
in the waning second of the
fourth quarter. The Braves
needed -a big three-point
shot from senior Angus An-
derson and a put-back by
Alex Campbell at the buzzer
to force the game into over-
time.
In the extra frame, Wal-
ton got a key basket from
Quentine Stuckey as he
also made three free throws


down the stretch to help the
Braves to a near-miracle 88-
84 win on the.road.
Walton got the victory
despite 33 turnovers as
the Bulldogs struggled to
12-of-30 shooting from the
free throw line to allow the
Braves to come back. Free-
port hit only 4-of-13 shots
from the charity stripe in
.the final quarter while Wal-
ton got nine of Angus An-
derson's 26 points when it
mattered most. Ken Ran-
dolph also scored four of his
13 points over the final eight
minutes with Alex Campbell
chipping in 15 points on the
night.
Walton held on to defeat
Arnold on Jan. 30 as Ran-
dolph scored 10 of his 19
points in the fourth quarter
to help Walton preserve a
66-60 win on the road.
The Braves closed the
regular season with a 53-52
win in Crestview after los-
ing three previous meetings
on the year. DeShun Tucker
had seven of his 12 points in

the fourth quarter as Wal-
ton barely avoided another
close loss on the year.
Walton coach Brad West
will take his troops to Mari-
anna to face the Bulldogs in


a District 1, Class 4A semi-
final on Friday night at 7
p.m. The two teams split
there first two meetings
with each winning at home
during the regular season.'


could have gotten this far if
we hadn't had-been part of
a great team. There is no
doubt in my mind that ev-
eryone [on the team] wanted
to come out and contribute
and better themselves as
well as the team every time
we stepped on the field."
McCormick, a four-year
starter, is a true veteran -
he is, in fact, the player with
the most wins under his belt
of any player in Freeport's
history. He was selected to
the Class A All-State foot-
ball team as a tight end and
he led Freeport in the '11
season (which Freeport fin-
ished with an 8-4 record and
a trip to the second round of
the state playoffs) with 26
receptions for 448 yards and
five touchdowns to his cred-
it. He tacked on 105 rushing
yards on offense, while, de-
fensively, he had three in-
terceptions to go along with
4.5 tackles for a loss, and
blocked two extra points.
SDuring the course of his
career, McCormick caught
59 passes for 1,162 yards
while scoring 18 touch-
downs. He also ran the ball
for 121 yards on 13 carries
over his four years on the
varsity squad. On defense,
he had 10 career intercep-
tions with 219 return yards,
to which he added six fum-
ble recoveries and posted
6.5 tackles for loss in the
rushing game.
Head joined the Bulldogs
in 2010 after transferring
from Walton and quickly es-
tablished himself as a force
on both sides of the football.
Most of his accomplishments
came on defense in 2010,
when he had 2.5 sacks for
16.5 yards' worth of'losses

a touchdown and carried the
ball 38 times. In 2011, Head
had 58 rushing attempts
for 401 yards and five TDs,
plus nine receptions for 167

ond on the team in scoring,

Head's career 3.5 QB
sacks .for -21.5 yards with

McCormick and Head
shared remembrances of
all the good times had at
Freeport, and of all the hard
work it took have the suc-
cess the Bulldogs enjoyed
during their high school ca-
reers. Head said he'll always
appreciate the dedication
Anderson and the rest of the
coaching staff showed the
team. Every practice, every
game, is something worth
remembering, he said.
"Just to go out and play
with a group of guys that
you knew was working
harder than our opponents
were was the best feeling,"
Head said. "I loved all the
two-a-days, the spring and
summer practices, all the
hard work and dedication,
everything. I'm really going
to miss it.
"It's going to take a toll on
us and our families when we
leave, but I think it will be a
good learning experience for
us to get away from home
and mature and become the
men Coach and our parents
taught us how to be."

Sports News and Notes: Stuckey Signs With FSU


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton Braves defensive
tackle Dalvon Stuckey (6-4,
305 lbs) signed with Florida
State University on Feb. 1.
Stuckey, who had 20 rush-
ing tackles for a loss in his
three-year career on the
varsity to go with four quar-
terback sacks and a fumble
recovery, was a mainstay
along the defensive front
for the Braves. Despite a
rough senior year for the
team, Stuckey remained on
the Seminoles' radar for a
majority of the past two sea-


sons. Stuckey also signed
with Pearl River Commu-
nity College in Poplarville,
Miss., just in case he does
not fully qualify in Talla-
hassee.
The South Walton Sea-
hawks earned their second
district championship in
girls basketball and their
first since the 2005-06 sea-
son with a 28-12 victory over
Port St. Joe in Blountstown
in a low-scoring affair. The
Seahawks improved to 20-8
overall as Eve Heffron led
the way,with seven points.


South Walton led 22-6 at
halftime and earned a home
game in the first round of the
playoffs against Graceville
on Feb. 14.
The Ponce de Leon Pi-
rates won their 17th girls
basketball district cham-
pionship and 8th in a row
with a 56-38 victory over
Graceville in Cottondale on
Saturday night. The Pirates
(24-2) have won 11 straight
games as they prepare to
host Port St. Joe (16-9) in
their first game of the post-
season on Feb. 14.


South Walton saw all nine
of its participating wrestlers
advance to next weekend's
regional championship at
Clay High School in Green
Cove Springs. Spencer Mo-
lenda (152) and Reed Yan-
dell (120) both advanced as
district champions from the
district meet in Wewahitch-
ka. For Molenda, a junior,
it marked his first champi-
onship. Cody Pickren (114),
Matt Winkler (160) and Nick
Manzanares (195) each took
second in their respective
weight class while Dustin
Weidell (138), Sage Roberts
(145) and Robert Felt (170)
earned third-place finishes.
Storm Thayer, competing in
the 126-pound division, fin-
ished fourth to advance to
the regional championships.

Paxton girls win eighth district hoops title in a


row with 57-39 victory against Malone


By REID TUCKER
Before the night of Satur-
day, Feb. 4, Paxton's Lady
Cats had claimed seven
straight district titles, and
the pressure to keep that
record going kept the girls'
coach, Steve- Williams, up
the previous night and at
school all day.

From 9:30 a.m. on he
went back over old films,
organized stats, tidied up in
the office anything to get
ready for the season's third
matchup with tough district
rival Malone, with which
Paxton would content for
the the District 1 A cham-
pionship that night.
"I just didn't want to be
at home," Williams said. "I
couldn't stand just doing
nothing. I spent a lot of time
figuring out exactly what I
wanted to do as far as strat-
egy goes. Really soaking
that in sort of calmed my
nerves."
That extra preparation on
the parts of both Williams
and the Lady Cats (22-4)
went a long way, as Pax-


ton came back from a slug-
gish first quarter to defeat
the Tigers (20-4) by a 57-39
margin to keep the streak
of district titles rolling. The
victory also marks Paxton's
girls program's 16th dis-
trict championship since the
1985-1986 season.
Alyssa Dupree, who
crossed the 1,000-career-
points threshold against
Bethlehem on Jan. 17, once
again led the Lady Cats,
scoring 20 points against
Malone, mostly from the
free-throw line. Emily Mur-
ray was Paxton's second-
highest scorer with 14
points on the night. As for
the Tigers, it was all about
Curteenona Brelove, who
scored 25 of her team's
points, as only three other
Malone players got on the
scoreboard at all and none
got out of single digits.
Paxton did a good job of
trapping the ball, drawing
fouls, forcing turnovers and
edging Malone in shooting
from the floor, but Williams
said his team had to dig
deep to pull out the 16-point

win.
"It's tough to beat a really
good team three times in one
season," he said. "Against a
team with the size and ath-
leticism that Malone has, we.
knew every time we faced
them that it was going to be
a battle."
Brelove lived up to Wil-
liam's expectations by scor-
ing at will in the lane during
the first quarter, outpacing
the best efforts of Dupree,
who scored just once -from
the floor and went 3-for-6
from the stripe. However,
a 10-8 Malone lead at the
start of the second quarter
was soon overturned by the
Lady Cats, who, having cut
off Brelove, outscored the
Tigers 17-2 in the period de-
spite shooting 2-for-13 from
the floor. Murray scored six
points and Bethany Neale
scored four to back up Du-
pree's 7-for-8 shooting at
the stripe to give Paxton the
25-12 edge at halftime.
The third quarter was
tighter, with Paxton out-
scoring Malone 13-11, but
the Lady Cats' momentum
could not be denied and
they led 38-23 at the buzzer.
The fourth quarter was a re-
turn to business as usual as
Dupree got in a basket and
drained all four free-throws
while nearly everyone else
on Paxton's bench got in and
put points on the board to
help Paxton to a 19-16 scor-
ing lead. It wasn't for lack of
trying and succeeding that
Malone fell behind in the
fourth though, as Brelove,
Olivia Daniels and Shakira
Smith all contributed to an
8-for-12 shooting ratio from
the floor compared to Pax-
ton's somewhat paltry 3-for-
9 mark.
Nevertheless, Brelove
found herself trapped by


Paxton's screen and, lack-
ing another player with her
ability to drive in for goals,
Malone fell before the more
accurate shooting of the
Lady Cats, particularly at
the free-throw line, where
the home team made 20 of
29 shots. Paxton held on to
the initiative to take the 57-
39 win at the buzzer.

Paxton walked through
Poplar Springs two days pri-
or in the semi-final round,
earning an easy 46-31 win
after posting a 23-9 score at
halftime. Dupree scored 22
points on the night. The win
came despite the Lady Cats'
failure to make a single
3-point shot, something Wil-
liams said he had never seen
in all his years of coaching.


Williams said the result
of the Malone game and the
facts of the game against
Poplar Springs illustrate
two points. The first is that,
odds are, Paxton's girls
won't win forever. The sec-.
ond is that they won't stop
trying to do just that.
"Eventually, we're not go-
ing to win one, so that pres-
sure is hard to deal with,"
Williams said. "When [Ma-
lone] got up we could have
panicked but we didn't and
that says a lot about our
character and our heart."
Paxton will host Holmes
County (13-12) in the open-
ing round of the state playoff
contest on Feb. 14. The Lady
Cats have only faced Holm-
es County once before, the
result of which was a 68-58


victory for Paxton way back
in the 1993-1994 season.
Paxton is 33-15 in its state
playoff appearances and
won state championships in
1986, 1994, 1996 and 1997.
Additional note: As of
this writing, Dupree has
scored 1,151 points in 107
career games, averaging
10.8 points per game. She
has scored 473 points in 25
games this season for an
average of 18.9 points per
game and she needs just 27
more points in the playoffs
to become the first Area 5
player to tally more than
500 points in a single sea-
son. The last player to do
so was Ashlee Stephens of
South Walton, who scored
580 points during the 2005-
2006 season.

Walton Girls Claim District Title


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Lady Braves
left no doubt that they were
the best team in District 1
of Class 4A as they jumped
out to a 20-4 lead after one
quarter of play over host
Pensacola Catholic on the
way to a 54-30 victory that


,earned the visiting team
their second district title in
the last four years.
Walton was sharp from
the opening tip as seniors
Gillian Infinger and Allyson
Howell hit 3-point shots in
the opening minutes of the
game to help the Braves


to an 8-2 lead followed by
shots from behind the arc by
Taliah Moore and Caretha
Paul for a 17-2 lead that the
Crusaders would never re-
cover from.
Pensacola Catholic strug-
gled with turnovers as the
Lady Braves provided back-


court pressure to force 26
turnovers on the night. Wal-
ton led 29-11 at the half and
43-18 after three quarters of
play.
Walton took care of the
basketball as they ran a pa-
tient offense that was able to
hit open shots and build an


early lead in a facility that
has often been a struggle to
come out of with a victory,
regardless of the sport.
Taliah Moore had 16
points in the contest with
Deja Tucker adding 14 of
her own while battling in-
side for points off of several
offensive rebounds.
The Crusaders(4-21) got
to the championship round
after shocking Marianna
39-37 on Friday night in the
semi-finals after the Bull-
dogs had won both regu-
lar season contests against
Pensacola Catholic.
Walton's crowd got into
the game early as the Braves
fans out-numbered the home
team's fans by a sizable mar-
gin as Jerry Hester earned
his first district title as the
Lady Braves head coach.
.Walton (16-8) will face
the runner-up from District


2, Tallahassee Godby, on
Thursday night at 7 p.m.
Team Notes: The Walton
Lady Braves claimed their
11th district title in school
history (they won their first
after the 1979-80 season)
and earned their 17th trip to
the state playoffs. Walton is
17-16 in state playoff games
and will be hosting only
their second playoff game
since 1996. Walton defeated
Chipley 82-64 on Febru-
ary 12, 2009, in the team's
last home playoff game be-
hind Lee Paulk's 21 points.
This will be the first playoff
game in Walton's new gym-
nasium. Walton finished as
state runner-up in 1982 and
1996 and lost in overtime to
Belle Glade in a state semi-
final in 1993 in what may
have been the best girls bas-
ketball team in the school's
history.

SWFD hires fiscal officer,



approves sale of property


By DOTTY NIST
South Walton Fire Dis-
trict (SWFD) Chief Admin-
istrator, reported the selec-
tion of a new fiscal officer for
the district to succeed Brian
Flanagan, SWFD fiscal offi-
cer since 2005.
The announcement took
place at the Feb. 6 SWFD
regular monthly meeting at
fire district 'headquarters/
Station 3 on CR-393 North.
Flanagan had announced
his retirement before Christ-
mas, and his last day on a
full-time basis was Jan. 6.


However, he is continuing
to work part-time with the
SWFD through Feb. 23 dur-
ing the transition to a new
fiscal officer.
Chief Rick Talbert said
the SWFD had interviewed
13 applicants before making
the decision to make an of-
fer to Carole Martin of Leg-
endary, Inc. He told the fire
commissioners that Martih
has over 30 years' experience
in the financial field and has
worked nine of those years
at Legendary. He said Mar-
tin would be present at the


SWFD's March board meet-
ing.
Talbert also reported
that a tabletop exercise for
readiness in the event of po-
tential school violence had
gone very well. The exercise
was sponsored by the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
and Walton County EMS
and was hosted by Free-
port High School. Talbert
said the SWFD participated
alongside all other agencies
who would respond in such
an emergency.
Talbert said he and


SWFD Beach Safety Direc-
tor Gary Wise had met with
South .Walton Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC)
Executive Director Dawn
Moliterno to present the
2011 end-of-season report
for the beach safety pro-
gram. The SWFD is respon-
sible for the program, which
includes safety education
and lifeguard services, on a
contractual basis with fund-
ing though the TDC budget:
The SWFD is gearing up to
kick off the 2012 program in
March.


Talbert also reported that
he had met with Walton
County Sheriff Mike Adkin-
son, as he does a number of
times a year, to discuss com-
mon goals of the SWFD and
sheriffs office and ways in
which the two organizations
may increase their coopera-
tion to benefit the public.
Talbert characterized their
discussion as "great."
One of those cooperative
ventures is with the op-
eration of medical support

By DOTTY NIST
Slot machines in the Pan-
handle are looking less and
less likely, at least for this
year.
On Feb. 3, a bill that
would have provided for up
to three gambling resort
facilities, known as "des-
tination resorts," to be es-
tablished in the state was
termed "dead in the House"
for this year by State Rep-
resentative Erik Fresen (R-
Miami).
Fresen, who had spon-
sored the House of Repre-
sentatives version of the bill,
made the decision to tem-
porarily postpone the bill,
which had been scheduled
to be voted on by the House
Business and Consumer Af-
fairs Subcommittee on Feb.
3. Since that was the last
meeting of that committee
for the 2012 legislative ses-
sion, the postponement had
the effect of barring the bill
from moving forward in the
session and from potentially
being considered by the full
House.
At' a press conference
the same day, Fresen com-
mented that, resulting from,
negative response at the
committee meeting to pro-
posed bill amendments that
he considered "innocuous,"
he had made the decision to
postpone the bill and "keep
the conversation going."
Fresen said he could not
speak for the Senate com-
panion bill---but that the


destination resort bill was
finished for the year as far as
the House was concerned.
Fresen commented on the
debate accompanying the
measure's consideration,
calling the debate "incred-
ibly necessary." He spoke
to the need for "a once-and-
for-all, comprehensive con-
versation on gaming," as it
currently exists and on its
future in the state.
Fresen was of the opinion
that the bill could succeed
in a future session. He said
of gambling, "I think it's
here, and most Floridians
have touched it, seen it, felt
it, and realized that it's not
the boogeyman that it's pur-
ported to be...that, if done
the right way, it's not going
to have the .negative effects
that people say it would
have."
Locally, Sandestin Golf
and Beach Resort owner
Tom Becnel had expressed
interest in establishing, as
part of the resort, a small,
upscale resort gaming and
entertainment facility,
which he had anticipated
would be made possible by
amendments to the legisla-
tion. 'However, Becnel had
put that concept on hold
after a Jan. 17 poll of Sand-
estin homeowners revealed
that only 21 percent of the
owners were in favor of such
a venture.
In contrast with that
outcome, over 57 percent of
Washington County voters


A GAMBLING bill procedurally blocked in the Florida House of Representatives, Sand-
estin homeowners'opposition to a casino, and a legal opinion by Florida's attorney general
have the result of less chance of slot machines and other casino gambling coming to North-
west Florida.


participating in a Jan. 31
referendum, held in conjuc-
tion with the Presidential
Preference Primary, were in
favor of the addition of a slot
machine facility at the Ebro


Greyhound Park. However,
the addition of slot ma-
chines at the park faces a
legal challenge. In a Jan 12
advisory opinion, Florida
Attorney General Pam Bon-


di concluded that legisla-
tive authorization would be
necessary in addition to the
referendum in order for the
use of slots to be lawful at
the parimutuel facility.


Community forum Feb. 9 for U.S. 331 bridge issue


A community forum has
been scheduled for informa-
tion and public input in con-
nection 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-


field, 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.

Fifth annual 30A


St. Patrick's Day


parade March 16


Big changes are in place
for the 5th Annual 30a St.
Patrick's Parade slated for
Friday, March 16 at 3 p.m.
Forming on Scenic 30A near
The Preserve, the parade
heads westbound ending at
Gulf Place.
The event began as a
small parade in 2008, and
has now grown to a parade
plus festival complete with
green beer, Guinness-spon-
sored banners, rocking en-
tertainment and an Irish
good time.
The year 2012 is a banner
year for the parade, bringing
in highly acclaimed Celtic
band Mickle-A-Do from At-
lanta.
The Grand Marshal of the
parade will be Jac McTighe,
who follows previous Grand
Marshals Rick Talbert, Fire
Chief, Commissioner Ceci-
lia Jones, Sheriff Michael
Adkinson and Deputy Fire
Chief Sean Hughes. Jac has
also been Grand Marshal of
the Atlanta St. Patrick's Pa-
rade.
"We are so delighted to
have Mickle-A-Do this year,
along with Jac McTighe as
Grand Marshal," said Paul


Vizard, event founder. "The
festival entertainment por-
tion of the event has grown
tremendously, and we expect
a packed green at Gulf Place
this year, so bring a chair
and come early. We are also
very grateful for our main
sponsors of Gulf Place, Art-
ists at Gulf Place, and busi-
nesses at Gulf Place, along
with Andrews and Arnsdorf,
and hope to add more closer
to the event."
Up for grabs again is the
Best in Parade award, won
in 2011 by Lifeguard Realty,
and in past years by Stinky's
Fishcamp and JC's off the
Hook. Businesses are en-
couraged to enter well-deco-
rated cars trucks or floats to
vie over the coveted award.
The parade judges table is
appropriately situated in
Blue Mountain Beach at the
halfway point. The Best in
Parade award ceremony will
take place at Gulf Place.
At Gulf Place after the
parade will be food, drinks,
and product vendors, face
painting, and entertainment
from 4 p.m. onward with
Irish Dancers, and Celtic
Band Mickle-A-Do. Five

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, TIIURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2012


CORRECTION


In last week's DeFuniak
Herald Beach Breeze, an
article ran ("BCC hears rec-
ommendation and views on
U.S. 331 bridge project")
about comments on the pro-
posed sales tax increase to
finance a bridge on U.S. 331.


The article gave an t4irrmt-
ed cost for the al;lt.rnaftii
funding proposal a Li f:.
toll as 1" ii' : i ',)., per ,..i
for a $2 toll. That fi',,u i was
actually the estimate for the
$3 toll option, not $2.

By BEN GRAFTON
At a brief Design Review
Board meeting on Feb. 2 at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex, board Chair
Greg Griffith opened the ses-
pion with a statement that
the agenda item concerning
signs for Bodacious Con-
signment & Design should
not be heard because of an
outstanding code violation of
the building's exterior paint
color. The board approved a
motion to remove the item
from the agenda.
A second item on the
agenda was an applica-
tion submitted by World of
Signs for an amendment to
the Holiday Plaza Signage


Plan. The Plaza is located
at 12273 U.S. 98 West. The
amendment designates an
anchor tenant qualifying for
Type II building sign stan-
dards. Copies of two signs
were provided to board
members.
According to the World
of Signs spokesman, the old
signs do not look good and
they may not meet the pres-
ent code requirements. He
asked approval to go ahead
with new signs, the largest
6f which would be about 100
square feet in size and face
U.S. 98.
The board approved a mo-
tion to accept the Holiday
Plaza plan amendment.

personnel of the two orga-
nizations at large events
throughout the year in Wal-
ton County. Talbert said
SWFD personnel recently
were on hand at such a com-
mand post for the marathon
at Seaside.
Talbert reported that to
date there had been 105 false
fire alarms during the first
quarter of 2012. Through
a new ordinance for which
the SWFD worked to obtain
approval, the fire district is
able to bill persons respon-
sible for false alarms, under
certain conditions. Talbert
said that 10 of the 105 false
alarms had been billable
under the terms of the ordi-
nance, at a total of $1,685.


Also at the Feb. 6 meet-
ing, the fire commission-
ers reviewed appraisals on
SWFD property on CR-395,
the old location of the dis-
trict's Seagrove station. The
property has been under
lease to Ron Romano as the
site of his real estate office
in a modular building. With
plans to build a permanent
office structure, on Jan. 9
Romano had notified the
SWFD of his decision to ex-
ercise the purchase option
on the property included in
his lease agreement, and
the SWFD had sought an
appraisal.
Appraisals obtained by
the SWFD and Romano were
presented at the meeting.
The appraisal obtained by


the SWFD came to $130,000,
and Romano's appraisal
came in at $107,000.
The fire commissioners
voted unanimously in agree-
ment with a compromise
price of $121,000 for the
sale of the property. A clos-

agreed to.
Jessica Jarosz of the Boys
and Girls Club addressed
the fire commissioners with
a request for waiver of the
$13,473 fire impact.fee for
the club's new south Walton
County facility, for which
work is expected to begin
soon. The board members
discussed waivers that had
been approved for nonprofit
organization in the past.


At the request of SWFD
Chairman Maurice Gilbert,
the request was tabled due
to the fact that it had not
appeared on the meeting
agenda. Jarosz said she had
so requested but that a mis-
communication between the
staff of her organization and
that of the SWFD had re-
sulted in the omission.
The request is to be con-
sidered at the SWFD's


March 5 regular meeting at
Station 3.
The SWFD's annual
awards ceremony, to include
the announcement of SWFD
firefighter of the year and
other honors, is scheduled
for Feb. 18, also at Station
3. A 5 p.m. reception with
refreshments is planned,
and the festivities are set to
start at 6 p.m. Community
members are encouraged to
attend.

Al 77) ,i


Many call Valentine's Day just another day when Hall-
mark cards, Lindt chocolates and overpriced roses by the
dozens are given to that "special" person. But there are those
gifts that are available this Lover's Day, that will last longer
than flowers, not get shoved in a drawer like a card, or put
on those five pounds that you worked so hard to get off at
Chrismas.


Cupid finally gets his big
day on Feb. 14, and with his
arrows he will once again
have lovebirds pledging
their deepest affections. It
is also the day that will see
record numbers of Valentine
cards and bouquets of flow-
ers, the one day that we will
all be seeing red, and the one
day that has been set aside
for not only loving couples,
but all those who are in our
lives.
With the market shelves
loaded with candies, and
the flower coolers brim-full
of long-stemmed roses with
balloons attached, there are
so many more gift ideas of-
fered that it is hard to de-
cide which is best for those
you are buying for on Valen-
tine's Day.
But there are some gifts
that- are available that are7
good alternatives to the usu-
al, that will have your loved
one praising your thought-
fulness, and will shower you
with endless affection.
Organic flower bouquets:
One of the biggest trends
in gift-giving over the past
several years, have been
those that are stamped,
"eco-friendly," or "organic."
Valentine's Day gifts are
no different, and many are
turning to those flowers that
are raised in all natural set-
tings, in compost beds, or
that have no chemicals used
on them during the grow-
ing process. Many florist are
now offering these gifts, and
one of the attributes that
those receiving such flowers


are coming to appreciate,
is that when the bouquet
dies, the florist will pick the
dead flowers up, carry them
off, and they become mulch
and compost for the follow-
ing year's Valentine's Day
flower gifts.
Valentine's Day Barbie:
What little girl wouldn't
want another doll to add
to her collection? This Val-
entines Day gift idea is for
girls 3-8 years old, or for
any age girl or woman who
collects the iconic toy. This
collectible Barbie Doll in her
adorable Valentine's dress
includes a special heart bar-
rette for girls, too!
Your own love story: Ev-
eryone appreciates a good
love story, especially their
own! One of the hottest
things this Valentine'sDay,
is to create a list of reasons
why you love your Valentine!
Each page of the LoveBook
has a reason why you love
them, what attracted you
to them, how you feel about
them, what your dreams of
them are all about, and so
on.
It is one of the most per-
fect and personal gifts that
can be offered. For those
that don't have time to write
their "Why I Love You" nov-
el, simply make your own
personalized card.
Personalized M & Ms:
This is some really excit-
ing news, if you haven't al-
ready heard, now you can
make your very own real,
authentic, personalized M
& M candies. That's right,


and not only can you have
your very own personalized
M&M's with a unique mes-
sage of your own, you can
upload a photo and have it
printed on the opposite side
too.
This is one of the newest
and hottest Valentine's Day
gift ideas going this year
and it's perfect for men,
women and kids alike. In-
formation can be found on
the Internet, just by going
under personalized candy
under Google.
Box of Memories: It
might sound corny to some,
but it has been one gift that
has adorned Christmas
trees and bedside tables on
Valentine's Day, for many,
many decades. It is anoth-
er personalized touch that
seems to be on the top of the
"thoughtful" gage.
The gift is simply all
handmade and contains
items from a child, a part-
ner, or a family's history.
For a couple, it is small trin-
kets and snapshots, for a
family, it is pics of the birth,
and other pieces of history,
that are glued, or attached
to a wooden or cardboard
box.
Extremely popular in the
'70s when decoupage was in
vogue, the gift idea is mak-
ing a surge once again and
finding itself on the top of
many people who once did


it back in the day, or either
finding out the enjoyment
of making this personalized
gift, for the very first time.
Build A Bear: For many,
it is just another toy to push
after the holiday rush, but
for others it has become a
staple in their Valentine's
Day gift-giving tradition.
Throughout the U.S., people
have been flocking to these
Build A Bear stores, to
make and personalize their
own fluffy teddy bear. From
a 12-inch-tall girl bear that
you dress in a ballerina cos-
tume, to a 6-foot giant panda
that is covered in hearts and
says, give me a bear hug,"
the Build A Bear Workshop
is just as busy as Santa's
workshop, but only if you
are seeking a personalized
bear that comes complete
with their own one-of-a-kind
saying, outfit and look.
Romantic getaway: Jew-
elry and flowers sitting on
the breakfast table on Val-
entine's Day, is always a
great surprise and a sure
way to get the emotions
flowing, what if you gave
those same gifts, on the back
deck of your Caribbean va-
cation home? Now for most,
an extravagant getaway for
Cupid's holiday is not in
their budget. But for many
Florida residents, the win-
ter season offers a plethora
of getaways to some of the


most beautiful and exotic
destinations, if only for a
weekend.
From the Atlantis Resort
on Paradise Island in the Ba-
hamas, to Sandals Resorts
in Jamaica, the Bahamas,
and St. Thomas, Valentine's
Day romantic packages are
hitting big with those who
have a little extra income
and who don't mind doing
some airline to get to their
romantic destination.


No matter what you
choose to do for your loved
one, or loved ones, make sure
it comes from the heart and
is a direct reflection of your
own personality. It doesn't
matter if you spend a dollar,
or drop a few thousand ben-
jamins, just make sure they
know you put thought into
whatever you end up giving
them.
Have a great and happy
Valentine's!

WIton County SiDowbird News

Let's take a minute and get up close and personal with the Walton County Snowbirds.
They swarm the Emerald Coast golf courses, fill the restaurants, then shop in search of
bargains, and gather in groups to talk (that's code for brag) about children and grand-
children. For sure, they no longer sizzle along 98's fast lane, but those gray hairs and
bald pates can fool the uninitiated because they are the men and women who told Time
to take a hike, wrestled with adversities that can break a back or a heart and then moved
on. They raised families, ran farms and businesses or held skilled, professional positions
that took years of study, fought in wars and in doing all this became the men and women a
younger generation can look to for a bit of advice, a hand up or a cheer. Now they come to
the Emerald Coast to take on hew challenges. Maybe they learn to paint, or write or take
up golf or tennis, play bridge, dance and sing or share their expertise and knowledge with
others. Many share their time and talents with area schools, churches, and other not for
profit organizations. Twenty-five Walton County snowbirds who assemble each Wednes-
day morning at Faith Assembly provide an excellent example of how snowbirds put their
time to productive use. It is there that organizers Dee Trolian and Karen Moosekian lead a
group of crafters with skills and interests as eclectic as the several states from which they
come to take part in ancient and not so ancient arts.
Barb Mattes teaches Viking Knitting, an art form dating to the time of the Vikings that
involves 26-gauge copper wire over sterling silver, a dowel, a draw plate, and patience.
With such a kit in hand, crafters, among them, Judy Mudd, Kathy Zollner, Mary Fran-
zmeier, Marie Million, and Mary Serniak, ply their skill and patience in the mastery of
the jewelry making skills of those ancient mariners. Eloise Bierman instructs on Swedish
weaving, a form of decorative embroidery in which geometric designs are worked along the
surface of monk's cloth. Allanah Langeland hooks rugs as she has for seven years, while
Dee Trolian adds to a collection of 15 rugs. Marion Tarbell produces "snap happy" bags
while next to her Diane Titus knits a prayer shawl. A few feet away, Jackie Hale knits a
pair of socks while keeping company with Karen Moosekian who is knitting a scarf. Oth-
ers who add their talents are Carol Krygiel, Rose Tomlinson, Dawn Ysseldyke, Daryl Spon-
seller, Linda Conroy, Sandy Leidenheimer, Ruth Gollop, Diane Phillips, Jan Hoover, Janet
McGee and Marilyn Grbich, Suzanne Bowles, Paula Flanagan, Anne Gray, Sara Hampton,
Elaine Hartman, Rose Horely, Sue Keller, Sandy Masa, Pat McDevitt, Marie Nusbaum,
SJoan Peer, and Michele Stanick. Those interested in learning more about crafting, may
e-mail daryltrolian@hotmail.com. To learn more.about Walton County Snowbird activity

The Discussion group centered on health issues at a recent session headed by Bob Algie.
The many suggestions discussed included acquiring good mental health, having an exer-
cise program, getting flu shots, and getting second medical opinions. To join in the discus-
sion call 267-4281.
Bob Hendrickson won top honors from the creative writer's workshop for his short story,
The Sisters. Louise Bottrell earned the highest technical award for her short story, Double
Take.
Betty Martin reports Wednesday afternoon Bridge winners were Gene Zwickey and Al-
lan Price. Wednesday evening honors went to Paul Smithers and Elaine Zwickey. Those
interested in joining in the fun may contact Betty at 837-0996 or Jerry and Jean Emholtz
(612) 483-8546.
Euchre scores are Men 1st place, C. O. Ulrich 81, Gerald Beautke 73, Women 1st place,
Shelva Johnson 86, 2nd place, Marie Apamski 82. Eunice Collins reports there are 80
players and room for more. For details call 650-1546.
Those planning to attend the annual ladies luncheon scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 22
can expect a twist in the historic format of information and amusement when male models,
including future club president, Tom Schwichtenberg, strut their stuff during the Bealls
Style show, "Kicking Up the Heels."
Barbara Breemen reports Thursday golf league results, which are for Feb. 2: 1st place
.Bev Ward, Larry Ward, Judy Maurer, Richard Maurer; 2nd place, Sue Johnson's team.
Beth Sargent reporting for the Tuesday golf league reports Lucy William's team took the
top spot on Jan. 24 and then tied with Bob Reichert's team for top honors on Jan. 31.

will present- "The Mystery of
ACT4 Murder: 10 Years and
Counting of Killer Success!"
Who is Act4Murder? Find
information about them in
the newspaper, online, and
on rack cards in Okaloosa,
Escambia and Santa Rosa
counties, but who are they,
and why have they survived
for almost 10 years when the
economy, to say the least,
has not been conducive to
expendable income, ear-
marked for entertainment?
The mastermind behind
Act4Murder, Paula Hilton,
says they are a professional
murder mystery troupe who
has been performing origi-
nal, comedic murder mys-
teries for dinner theater in
Northwest Florida since
2003. The shows are writ-
ten, directed and produced
by Hilton, a member of Em-

ers of America, and include
performers who are experi-
enced actors with a flair for

hundreds of laughs and a
night the guests will never
forget!

Mark Fisher has practiced

areas of estate planning,


avoiding probate, asset pro-
tection, and the use of the
Living Revocable Trust. He
has lectured to the public
and to members of the Bar
for continuing legal educa-
'tion credit. For the past 12
years he has hosted a week-
ly radio talk show on estate
planning. He has written
Spending Grandma's Inher-
itance and The Instant Mil-
lionaire; A Tale of Wisdom
and Wealth. Do those who
succeed work harder than
those who only dream about
success? Are they smarter,
luckier, and more ruthless?
And does financial success
bring happiness? These
perennial questions are
perhaps more tiriely than
ever. The Instant Million-
aire answers them in the
unforgettable voice pf a very
wise and wealthy old man.
Known as the "Instant Mil-
lionaire" because he grasped
the true secret of making a
fortune overnight, this sage
mentors a young man with
frustrated dreams and nine-
to-five disappointments. In
practical, ready-to-imple-
ment lessons, he reveals
the ideas and actions that
can give anyone the men-
tality of a millionaire. This
simple yet powerful mental
shift paves the way not only
for financial success but
also for profound personal
fulfillment and well-being.
Fisher will give insight into
the wild world of estate
planning and keep attend-
ees laughing all the way to
their attorney's office, www.
