County commissioners
have voted not to consider
having the state impose a
toll to fund the local match
to add two lanes to the U.S.
331 bay bridge.
The decision took place at
the Feb. 14 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex, following a motion
by District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones.
In December, DOT offi-
cials had proposed provid-
ing $102'million in funding
for the $177 million project
with the condition of. Wal-


ton County providing local
matching funds for the re-
mainder, $75 million---with
the project to be bid out on a
design-build basis in 2012.
Also during the ,Feb. 14
BCC meeting, after a motion
by District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander, the com-
missioners voted to schedule
an April 24 referendum for
the purpose of having voters
decide whether the match-
ing funds that would make
the bridge project a reality
would be provided through
an increase in the sales tax
of a half-cent per dollar on

Freeport Council

wrestles with park

security problem


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport Council
meeting on Feb. 14 Coun-
cilman Earl King reported
that he has received com-
plaints from residents about
inappropriate activity at city
paiks, particularly at Laird
Park. It was also- reported
that city crews have had to
frequently repaint restroom
walls to remove undesir-
able "ads." The possible use
of video cameras was dis-
cussed. The Council agreed
to ask the sheriffs office
and the fire department to
increase surveillance of the
parks and the swimming
pool area.
In other business, City
Planner Latilda Henninger
advised the Council that a
contract with the Depart-
ment of Economic Develop-
ment Waterfront Florida
program to identify ways
to improve economic activ-
ity in Freeport's waterfront
has been received. The con-
tract provides a grant of
$25,000 to cover associated
costs. Four workshops will


be required the last two of
which must be advertised.
The Planning Board will
hold the first "kickoff' meet-
ing on March 7. Henninger
will send a letter inviting lo-
cal businesses to attend the
workshops to provide input
on economic development is-
sues. The Council approved
having Mayor Mickey Marse
execute the contract for the
city.
Henninger commented
that in 2011 Freeport Youth
Sports played 142 players.
In 2012 the organization
will suit and play 214 chil-
dren. There will be 18 teams
including 6 T-ball teams. As
a part of preparations the
Fire Department held CPR
classes for the board and
team managers. Managers
are required to be certified
in CPR and first aid.
The Council approved a
request from the Florida
Division of Forestry for a
waiver of fees for the use of
the Community Center.

taxable items.
With the sales tax in-
crease and the toll being cur-
rently identified as the only
funding options for the local
match, the failure of the ref-
erendum would likely put an
end to the bridge project, at
least for the next five years
or so. DOT officials have in-
dicated that, without a local
match, they would redirect
the $102 million to another
transportation needs, which
could be in any area of the
state.
Comander's motion for
the sales tax referendum in-
cluded the provisions that,
if the referendum passed,
the funds generated could
be used only for the bridge
project---and that the tax
increase would be discon-
tinued upon the $75 million
being paid off, with no pos-
sibility of it being extended
or expanded.
At the request of Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion (WCTA) President Bon-
nie McQuiston, Commission-
er Jones added to his motion
regarding the toll that, if the
sales tax option did not pass
in the referendum, the BCC
would ask DOT to seek oth-
er funds for the bridge proj-
ect. Both Jones' motion and
Comander's calling for the
referendum carried unani-
mously.
A wide range of views was
expressed by citizens at-
tending the Feb. 14 meeting.
The possibility of a toll has
drawn criticism from com-
missioners and from many
citizens due to its impact-on
local people who commute
across the bridge for work.
While slightly more popu-
lar, the sales tax increase.
has also encountered oppo-
sition. Some residents have
also been of the opinion that
there is no need to expand
the bridge.
DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent J.B. Hillard was of this
opinion, saying that, if the


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


rest of U.S. 331 were four-
laned, the current bridge
could be set up as three
lanes to evacuate people in
the event of a hurricane.
"You have brokered
this deal with DOT;" Hil-
lard told the commission-
ers in disappointment, "you
hatched this $75 million
deficit spending." Hillard
was also critical of the BCC
for not educating the public
about the measure passed
by the legislature in 2010
that provided the ability for
the sales tax to be raised by
up to one cent per dollar for
transportation projects, as
will be considered by county
voters in April.
Comander responded that
she did not view it as the job
of the BCC to educate the
public on bills approved in
the Florida Legislature.
"Yes, we have been work-
ing on this project, but there
has been no deal brokered to
my knowledge," Comander
asserted.
"All of us have worked
hard to get this done," said
DeFuniak Springs grocer
J.W. Adkison of the proj-
ect, recalling efforts on
getting U.S. 331 widened
since 1962. "This has been
a top priority for years and
years;" he continued, "I don't
criticize anyone for trying to
work out a deal with DOT."
He added, "You'd think that
they'd be thrilled at the of-
fer being made," referring to
residents.
Walton County resident
and realtor David Kramer
also spoke positively about
the bridge project. "What
you've got is an opportuni- :
ty," he hold the commission-
ers. Kramer went on record
in favor of Jones' motion re-
garding the toll option and
in favor of a referendum on
the sales tax. The question
is, Kramer concluded, will
the county stick its "head in
the sand like an ostrich" or
not.


Bob Hudson of the WCTA
congratulated Jones on his
motion regarding the toll op-
tion. "The voters are going to
have a very clear choice," he
said. "We are trying to get
good numbers that people
can compare," Hudson said
regarding the referendum.
He called for a decision of
this magnitude to be "based
on real strategic analysis."
Hudson summarized the
WCTA position as being
against any new taxes, at
least until all details have
been provided and all ques-
tions on the matter have
been answered.
In a phone conversation
with lan Satter, public in-
formation officer for DOT
District 3, it was confirmed
to the Herald/Breeze that
there is no requirement for
DOT to obtain the authori-
zation of a local government
in order to place a toll on a
new transportation facility.
However, Satter said that
DOT strives to work hand-
in-hand with local govern-
ments and communities and
gives great weight to their
input. He said that, with
regard to the DOT's current
bridge proposal with Walton
County, the agency would
direct the $102 million else-
where if the $75 million
matching funds were not
provided through either of
the options.
The referendum is to be
legally binding. By law, the
county commission may
provide information on the
bridge issue and the refer-
endum, but the BCC is not
allowed to advocate for or
against the item on the ref-
erendum ballot. However,
there was discussion at the
Feb. 14 meeting that some
county employees have pas-
sionate views on the issue---
and that nothing would bar
them from advocating and
expressing those views out-
side of their work hours.

Love Won't


Build This Bridge
By BRUCE COLLIER

The Walton County Board of County Commissioners, has
approved a referendum (scheduled for April 24) for a sales
tax (half the originally proposed maximum) to finance the
southbound U.S. 331 bridge. The language of the referen-
dum reportedly will call for its demise upon payment of the
$75 million the county would borrow to match the DOT
grant.
Interestingly, the BCC also moved that, in the event the
sales tax referendum does not pass, that the BCC would
seek other funds for the bridge project from some other
source. This coda came at the request of the president of
the Walton County Taxpayers Association.
I wonder about that motion. After all, citizens are being
told (by the DOT) that if we don't act now, DOT is taking its
$102 million (the sum we have to match with $75 million)
and redirecting it elsewhere. I have no trouble believing
that, considering the state of some of the roads I've driven
in central and south Florida anybody travel 1-75 lately?
There's plenty of ways to spend that $102 million.
However, as I understand that motion, if we citizens
don't agree to a tax now to raise $75 million, our commis-
sioners are going to look for funding someplace else only
then it will be the entire $177 million? The only way that
sounds preferable would be if we could get the whole bundle
handed to us, without borrowing. Some people think that's
possible. Some people haven't specified how. Somehow the
idea of passing up partly free money now in hopes of getting
completely free money later seems a little shortsighted. I'd
hate to be the guy rattling the cup to ask for it, anyway.
"Buddy, can you spare a bridge?"
Finally, at the public forum on Feb. 9, the idea of "con-
traflow," of closing the U.S. 331 bridge to southbound traffic
for a one-way evacuation route (thus eliminating the need
for a $177 million south-laned bridge) was discussed. It's
a popular argument for those opposing the bridge. At that
forum, a Walton County Sheriffs Office representative said
that this can be done, at the cost of posting personnel at 59
feeder roads to prevent vehicles from turning south. Even if
only one officer were to be placed at each of the feeder roads,
that's 59 officers that could not be detailed to anything else.
If it's two officers, then double that amount and so on. In
the kind of situation where evacuation is necessary, that's
a critical waste of personnel. I have yet to hear a response
to that argument.
I found myself agreeing with a comment made by long-
time Walton County grocery owner J.W. Adkinson, a guy
who's been in business for a while, understands the bot-
tom line and has seen plenty of changes. "You'd think that
they'd be thrilled at the offer being made." Yeah, J.W., you
would.

never ask questions. Citizens with a conscience afid a back-
bone need not apply."
If Walton County Commissioner Scott Brannon were-to
run a classified ad for the replacement of Suzanne Harris,
this is the way it would read. The BCC's firing of Mrs. Har-
ris was a self-indictment of the invasive corruption that
is, unfortunately, the state of Walton County government.
Irn his attempt to condemn the actions of Mrs. Harris, Mr.
Brannon pronounced himself and the BCC, guilty of what
Mrs. Harris has been pointing out all along. That is the fact
that the dealing of our county government, in many cases


are illegal and can't stand up to legal or public scrutiny.
Mr. Brannon's statement that "Mrs. Harris has worked
against the.county's best interest" was predictable, but sad.
As pointed out by the Daily News, Mrs. Harris is 2 for 2
against the BCC. It's understandable that the "Honorable"
commissioners don't want to see her make a "threepeat"
and I suppose trying to smear her image by way of firing
her was the best idea this think-tank could come up with.
I would end this by using some worn-out cliche like
"throw the bums out," but it seems useless. Do we really
care anymore? If so, where is the proof? How long will Mrs.
Harris have to fight our battle alone?

"Contraception" is a huge word these days. I got up this
morning wondering how I felt about the subject. I decided
that it's a very private decision, everybody has to work out.
Humans male and female are sexual creatures. It's been
that way for centuries. We came here that way. Your God,
whoever that is, built men and women to function like
that.
Reality is, fact dictates, that when male and female get
together kids are produced. That's the way it is. Having a
child is not a simple thing. It takes 20 years and more to
raise one. Costs a fortune. There are thousands of decisions
involved.


In my judgement nobody, whoever you are, however im-
portant, has the right to decide who has a child.
The only way you can say anything is to agree to help
raise that child. Put your money where your mouth is if you
want to make decisions like that.
Contraception is a realty. It's important people "cannot"
I repeat "can not" have a child after every relationship. Put
the subject out there for everyone, everywhere for free if
possible.
Thank you for your time. I'm.glad to get that off my
chest.

LETRTOTEEITOR


Editor
When I went into the Army back in 1964 I was informed
that I would always receive good medical care after leav-
ing the Army in 1976. I spent three years in Vietnam and
served. 12 years in the service while being in Vietnam I was
sprayed by Agent Orange at least two or three times and it
took at least 20 years before they informed me that Agent
Orange gave me diabetes. I have many other medical prob-
lems. Some are service connected and others are not. The
problem with the VA is that I am only able to see a Medical
Doctor'twice a year and if I get sick, I have to wait almost
a month before I get an appointment to see a VA Medical
Doctor. This is not what I call good medical care, and this is
not what I was promised back in 1964 when I went into the
Army. I have talked to many other veterans that have told
me about the problems they have had with the VA medical
program. Now I was informed by a person who works in the
Pensacola VA Clinic that the VA is thinking about stopping
paying veterans travel pay. The statement that was given
to me by this person, was I was only promised medical care
when I entered the Army and was not promised travel pay.
When you serve in a war like in Vietnam or Iraq people
call you a hero, but when you return and get out of the ser-
vice you are unemployed and do not receive proper medical
care. Is this the way the government thanks the veterans?
Why does the government always cut the money from the
veterans and the low income who can not afford to pay for
medical programs? If you are a veteran who is having prob-
lems with the VA medical program call Senator Bill Nelson,
Representative Jeff Miller or Senator Marco Rubio.

Here's a catchy title for an article:

"Walton County Tax Increase Could Boost Okaloosa Coun-
ty Businesses" or

"Okaloosa Businesses Will Gain From Walton County Tax
Increase"

The Walton County Commissioners, who had hoped to be
able to place a 1- percent sales tax hike on an April referen-
dum vote, have had to settle for less. The Walton BCC was:
trying to create the highest county sales-in the state, but
has apparently reacted to pressure from a Chamber of Com-
merce Board vote for a 1/2 percent, and strong resident op-
position. Perhaps attempting to "lessen" the penalty, they
have relented, agreeing to allow the voters to decide "Yes"
or "No" on a 1/2 -percent increase. As the reader can tell
from the table below [sources: Florida Department of Rev-
enue tables, January 2012; Alabama Department of Rev-
enue tables, February 2012; various municipal taxes not
included], even a half percent puts Walton merchants at a
distinct disadvantage where sales taxes are concerned. The
table shows a comparison of current sales tax rates*.
It also demonstrates why Walton County residents, and
visitors for that matter, could decide that shopping in ad-
jacent counties would become a cost saver, even when con-
sidering the time and fuel to do so. My spouse and I are a
good example. For years, and for reasons of choice, we have
used the services of doctors, a CPA, and farm equipment
suppliers in Okaloosa County. Given an increase of even


1/2 percent in sales tax in our county of residence, we may
as well do all our taxable shopping out of Walton.
State Sales Taxes are as follows: Florida = 6% / Alabama
= 4%. County Surtaxes: Walton = 1% / Okaloosa = 0, as in
zero / Bay = 1' % / Covington = 2% / Geneva = 1% / Houston =
1%. Covington County is home to Florala and Andalusia;
Geneva County, and Houston County to Dothan. Walton's
surtax has no expiration date; Bay's expires in 2020.
By combining the above rates, state and county, we can
see that shoppers will pay a total (not including municipal
sales taxes) of 7% in Walton County, 6% in Okaloosa, 6.5 %
in Bay. In Alabama, the combined rates are 6% in Coving-
ton, and 5% in both Geneva and Houston Counties.
Add a potential 1/2 % to Walton's combined rate and the
winner is Okaloosa at 6% vs. Walton 7.5 %.
Supporters of this tax increase imagine that; people
actually favoring a tax have argued that spending $100
will add only $.50 to your charge. Ask any mid to low income
family with children, what the costs will be for the basics -
clothing, shoes, school supplies and the hundreds quickly
become thousands. Tax goes up proportionally, folks.-The
same soothsayers offer statistics that report tourists paying
a majority of the annual county sales tax total. Apparently,
facts like those are supposed to make the tax hike accept-
able. Even if the statistic is true, a tourist pays the extra
1/2 % tax for a brief time; the resident pays ALL YEAR.
Where do you suppose visitors to western south Walton will
shop??? Destin Commons???

I L R T I TOR I


Editor:
I would like to thank the Walton Board of County Com-
missioners for taking a stand against a toll bridge across
the Choctawhatchee Bay and giving the people an opportu-
nity to decide whether or not to accept a 1/2 cent sales tax
increase to help pay for the new bridge. They could have
gone with a 1 or 3/4 cent increase but choose the 1/2 cent
increase which I think is the best choice. The reason I be-
lieve the 1/2 cent to be the best option is that from what I
understand in the future if funds become available by any
means, those funds could be used to pay down the debt
on the bridge, shortening or ending the length of time we
would have to pay the sales tax increase. Funds can be-
come available in several fashions. The federal government
could decide once again to start funding infrastructure proj-
ects or the economy could start improving enough to gener-
ate increased federal, state and local revenues. I think the
latter is more likely because I believe in this country and
as Clint Eastwood said at halftime of the Super Bowl, "This
country can't be knocked out with one punch. We get right
back up again and when we do the world is going to hear
the roar of our engines. Yeah, it's halftime America. And,
our second half is about to begin!" Where are we going to be
in the second half? In a place with few new jobs, dependent
on tourist dollars or in a thriving place with many good new
jobs as well as an even bigger tourist industry? The way
we improve our economy is to think big and do big things.
Some are saying where's the proof that four-laning 331 will


improve our economy? I say how will our local economy im-
prove without it? "If you build it they will come."
As I drove down to the BCC meeting on Valentine's Day
from northern Walton County I couldn't help but notice
that construction has already started on 331 from Hwy 20
to the Bay. The state has plans for 331 and if we vote down
the 1/2 cent sales tax increase they can, without our con-
sent, force a toll bridge down our throats even if the BCC
votes against it. Based on what I've been reading lately the
current Florida Administration and legislature would like
to impose tolls here and all around the state. I think the
state is counting on us voting down the sales tax increase
and then they will say they have no choice but to put in
a toll bridge. The main reason I am so dead set against a
toll bridge is even though they say the tolls will end after
30 years, I will guarantee you if we get a toll bridge, they
will still be collecting tolls long after my grandkids are dead
and buried. Then there's the fact that 57 percent of a sales
tax increase would be paid by tourists while the majority of
tolls would be paid by hard working locals having to cross
the bridge every day to get back and forth to work. So in
my opinion we have a choice between 1/2-cent sales tax in-
crease that we could pay off early or having a toll bridge
forced upon us forever. Like our grandparents did for us af-
ter the Great Depression we now have to do for our grand-
children and build for the future!

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23,2012


In recent months, I'd come
to wonder if I wouldn't mind
selling my home. Put it on the
market and let a parade of
house-hunters traipse through
the studs and beams that have
held my life for the past 2 1/2
years. It is merely a house, af-
ter all. The nonchalance I felt
for the proposal surprised me
considering this was my dream
house, the home where my
husband carried me over the
threshold and we brought our
newborn son.
Yet the house had become
a burden-a symbol of stress.
Room by room, something said,
"wash me," "fold me," "mop
me," "lazy," "ought to." Long
gone were the dreams that once
whispered, "nursery," "fam-
ily room," "love nest." Those
idyllic notions were lost under
piles of laundry and coatings of
dust.


As enlightened and progres-
sive and 21st century as I like
to consider myself (because un-
der such doctrine my value is
in no way based upon whether
the dust ruffle actually hides
dust or if I even own one), fact
is, I still feel like a domestic
failure when the first thing I
do as people enter my home is
apologize. "It's OK," they tell
me, "you have a 2-year-old; it's
supposed to be a mess." But
I'm not OK with "OK," and my
dream house had morphed into
a house of horrors-a place I
rarely wanted to be; hence, the
mental proposal to sell it all
and move to a smaller space.
Then, last weekend, I mus-
tered the motivation to battle
through the clutter and dig
through the layers to reveal
the house I fell in love with. I
swept the dust, put away the
laundry, organized the clutter,


Mason's


By ASHLEY ALSON


and some of it, yes, stashed in
a bin out of sight. Giving it my
time and attention, caring for
it, and even appreciating its
cracks and flaws, brought me
right back to why I fell in love
with the house's unique charm
and character.
As I swept an ungodly
amount of acorns (that explode
on the tin roof like an atomic
bomb dropping at night-only
at night) from my deck, it made
me wonder, do we treat our
relationships like an overrun
house and stick a for-sale sign
on the front lawn when they be-
come stressful and dull?
I can recall similar instances
in friendships, when communi-
cation went awry over the miles
and years, and layers of tension
hardened between once-best-
friends. As one of my favorite
comedians joked, "You ever
not returned someone's phone
call for so long you decide to let
the friendship go?" Guilty. But
just as with the house, one af-
ternoon of attention and care,
and the tension was all swept
away.
Particularly in partnership-
relationships, it is easy to over-
look one another's true value

the table by six, and nobody
.whistles happily, ever. Conver-
sations become limited to "pass
the remote," and kisses are
tight-lipped imitations of how
Opie would kiss Aunt Bea.
Then one day, (hopefully be-
fore the Realtor is called) a cou-
ple will use an hour or two to
deep clean-take out the bitter-
ness, untangle the tension, fold
for one another-and uncover
the reasons they fell in love in
the first place, so much so that
they were willing to sign a life-
time note.
Altogether, a much bet-
ter system of spring cleaning,
wouldn't you say?

Extension Office program teaches participants how

to cook healthy meals without breaking the bank


By REID TUCKER
The Healthy Meals in a
$nap program, put on by
the Walton County Health
Department and the Uni-
versity of Florida's Walton
County Extension Office,
aims to show the public that
healthy meals can be quick,
easy and inexpensive.
Meetings are held from 6
p.m. to 7 p.m. on the second
Tuesday of each month from
January to June at the Ex-
tension Office on North 9th
Street in DeFuniak Springs.
Health and nutrition edu-
cators from the Health De-
partment and from UF's
Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Services teach
participants at each mnim-
seminar recipes that are
healthful wit out-11e ied
to break the bank. Each
month's meeting also high-
lights a different healthy
eating strategy or skill, with
February's being the correct
way to read and make sense
of nutrition labels on food


items.
The recipes taught range
from soups to casseroles and
salads to pizza, though the
meeting on Feb. 14 focused
on a beef and broccoli stir-
fry. Health Department Se-
nior health Educator Donna
Free said participation at
this month's meeting, with
16 people in attendance,
was roughly double that of
the first month. She said
Healthy Meals in a $nap
is essentially a pilot pro-
gram at this point, but more
classes in new locations like
Freeport and in south Wal-
ton County may soon follow
if participation continues to
increase.
Next month's meeting
wilf'be-' held' 'o Tuesday,
March 13. All meetings are
free to the public but pre-
registration is required. For
more information, contact
the Walton County Exten-
sion Office at (850) 892-

DFSPD makes two drug arrests


On Feb. 15, after an ex-
tensive narcotic surveil-
lance investigation, Charles
Alford Lewis and Kaylee
Wederski Schipper, both
from the DeFuniak Springs
area, were arrested by De-
Funiak Springs Police on
drug charges.
During the surveillance
officers performed an inves-
tigative stop on a red Chevy
Monte Carlo occupied by


Lewis and Schipper.' Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
K-9 Unit also assisted in the
stop.
The investigation during
the traffic stop resulted in
Lewis's and Schipper's ar-
rest for possession of listed
chemicals used to manufac-
ture methamphetamine.
Both suspects were trans-
ported to the Walton Coun-
ty Department of Correc-


tions. During a body search
performed by members of
Walton County Department
of Corrections, 144 pseu-
doephedrine pills were found
in a body cavity of Schip-
per. The additional charges
were added by the Walton
County Department of Cor-
rections for introduction of
contraband into a correction
facility, and destruction of
evidence.

pursuit yields drug arrest


DFS resident in Okaloosa


County traffic accident


A DeFuniak Springs driv-
er has been cited for careless
driving in a Feb. 13 accident
that took place at SR-20 and
Range Road in Okaloosa
County. A Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) report states
that a vehicle was traveling
east on SR-20 and stopped
for traffic ahead. The driv-
er and sole occupant was


Catherine L. Boswell, 19,
of Niceville. A second east-
bound vehicle, its driver and
sole occupant Alan P. Ohrt,
50, of Niceville, slowed to a
stop behind Boswell. A third
eastbound vehicle, its driver
and sole occupant Bryan
E. Kilbey, 57, of IeFuniak
Springs, was behind Ohrt.
The FHP report states


that Kilbey said he took his
eyes off the road briefly, and
struck the rear of Ohrt's ve-
hicle. Ohrt received minor
injuries. Neither Kilbey nor
Boswell were injured. The
FHP report states that all
involved wear using seat-
belts and that alcohol was
not a factor. Kilbey was cit-
ed for careless driving.


On Friday, Feb. 17, at ap-
proximately 11:36 a.m., De-
Funiak Springs Police offi-
cers attempted a traffic stop
on a Blue Ford Ranger pick
up truck in the area of Live
Oak and 15th Street. As the
officer approached the ve-
hicle to make contact, the
driver (later identified as
Adrian Kenyatta Flowers)
quickly sped. away, fleeing
towards Orange Avenue.
Another officer was in the
area and stopped on Orange
Avenue, with emergency
lights and siren. Flowers
drove directly at the parked
patrol unit, accelerating
as he approached. Flowers
steered the truck off the road
just before crashing into the
patrol unit and officer, and
continued to travel on Or-
ange Avenue to 19 Street.
Flowers continued south
on 19th Street to Bob Sikes


Road forcing other motorists
off of the road. The pursuit
continue west on Bob Sikes
road to Pleasant Ridge Road.
Flowers then lead officers
through the Eglin Reserva-
tion in an attempt to elude
them.
Flowers continued to flee
until he was stopped near
SR-20 in Freeport. He trav-
eled off the roadway onto
an embankment, causing
the truck to become stuck
in the mud. Flowers fled the
vehicle on foot, leaving be-
hind his passenger, Ashley
Hoover. Hoover was quickly
detained while members
of the DeFuniak Springs
Police, Criminal Investiga-
tions Division, captured
Flowers after a foot chase in
the woods.
Investigation following
the 20-minute pursuit "re-
vealed evidence of narcot-


ics trafficking, as Flowers
was found to have been in
possession of Lortab (Hy-
drocodone), Xanax (Alpra-
zolam), cannabis, and meth-
amphetamine, along with
items of drug paraphernalia
consistent with narcotics
sales and use.
Hoover was found to be
in possession of drug para-
phernalia and reportedly
admitted use of illegal nar-
cotics. Both suspects were
taken into custody at the
scene and transported to the
Walton County Department
of Corrections .

Members of the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office,
Florida Highway Patrol,
and Walton Corrections In-
sitution arrived on-scene in
Freeport and assisted in the
arrests. There were no inju-
ries.


DFSPD investigates



three traffic crashes


On Feb. 15, at approxi-
mately 11:46 a.m., DeFuniak
Springs Police officers were
dispatched to a semi tractor/
trailer versus stop sign. The
location of the crash was
at Regions Bank located on
U.S. 90 West.
When the officers arrived
the semi was obstructing the
roadway, creating a hazard
to other motorists. Officers
worked quickly and safely to
clear the hazard. The driver
of the semi, Leonard Pritch-
ett, indicated the crash
was the result of the semi's
faulty brakes. Pritchett was
charged for operating defec-
tive equipment. The name

At approximately 11:52
a.m., officers were dis-
patched to a school bus ver-
sus passenger car. The loca-
tion of this crash was County
Road 83 North, in the area
of Government Street.
The Walton County School
bus was being driven by De-
sirae Fields with no passen-
gers. Further investigation
found that the bus was trav-
eling south on County Road
83 North, in the area of
Government Street. A 2001
Buick passenger car driven
by Betty Brannon traveled
from the shoulder of the
roadway into the path of the
bus. Brannon was found at
fault and was charged with
careless driving.

Minutes later, at ap-
proximately 11:57 a.m., yet
another call came in report-


ing a crash on U.S. 90 in the
area of Advance Auto Parts.
Officers responded to find a
vehicle had collided into an-
other vehicle that was trav-
eling in the same direction
that was slowing to stop.
The two vehicles were at-
tempting to move out of the
way of an emergency medi-
cal vehicle responding to the
other crashes. There were
no visible damages, there-
fore both parties left the
scene declining any further
action.
There were no reported
injuries during these three
crashes. DeFuniak Springs
Police remind citizens that
when they observe any
emergency vehicle respond-
ing in an emergency mode,
motorists have the respon-
sibility to yield so they can
pass or get through the ob-
structing traffic. It is also
important to do so in a safe
manner,


For information leading to the arrest and conviction of the
person who shot buckshot and killed an 5-month-old
female German Shepherd puppy being trained for
disabled, handicapped Veteran contained within the
fenced-in yard at 46 Veteran's Lane in Freeport on or
about December 23-27, 2011.

"NO SUCH THING AS NATURAL BEAUTY," or so it's said in Robert Harling's "Steel
Magnolias," running this weekend at Florida Chautauqua Theater.


Steel Magnolias at Chautauqua

Theater has moving message


By ASHLEYAMASON
Having made her stage
debut at the Florida Chau-
tauqua Theater at age five,
it is no surprise that recent
University of Florida gradu-
ate Rachael Jones returned
to direct one of her all-time
favorite films Steel Magno-
lias on stage. Jones' vision
of Robert Harling's 1989
film classic featuring strong,
Southern women in Chin-
quapin Parish, Louisiana
unfolds in the Pepto-Bismol
pink walls (no doubt one of
Shelby's shades of blush and
bashful) of Truvy's Salon.
With no set-change and very
few scenery tweaks, Jones
and a cast of six women fab-
ulously bring to life the one-
liners, laughter, and tears of
Ouiser Boudreaux, Clairee
Belcher, Shelby Eatenton
Latcherie, M'Lynn Eaten-
ton, Annelle Dupuy Desoto,
and Truvy Jones.
As the lights come up,
Truvy (Gina Ealum) chides
Shelby (Brittany Hammock)
about her upcoming nup-
tials while sweeping a mass
of auburn curls into a hair-
do hall-of-famer. From the
first "y'all," the audience
can take a collective sigh of
relief, for the cast mastered
the most important part of
Steel Magnolias: the Loui-
sianan accent. Every "r" is
dropped and every vowel
knows how to make only
one sound-one as long as a
hot, summa' day on the bay-
ou. Hammock in particular,
another University of Flor-
ida graduate, masters the
tone and inflection of each
line. With her waif-life car-
riage and infectious smile,
Hammock was an excellent
choice for the audacious role
performed by Julia Roberts.
Mother-of-the-bride
M'Lynn, played by Cynthia
Rhodes, undergoes the infa-
mously poufy hair-teasing
of newcomer Annelle (Shala
Cuchens) while listening to
her daughter's fish-fright-
ening parking tales. Rhodes'
emotionally riveting power
is stored until scene two
when the fateful pregnancy
of her diabetic daughter is
revealed, and later in the
second act, as she shat-
ters into screaming sobs
when her beloved Shelby is
gone. One could hear a pin
drop during Rhodes' emo-
tional breakdown. Indeed,
she commands the stage.
The poignant powerhouse
scenes from the film are ex-
ponentially more powerful
on-stage'as the raw emotion
fills the theater--excite-
ment and sorrow and grief
are palpable in the air.
Of course, neither the
emotional spectrum, nor
M'Lynn's indignant outburst
would be complete without
the comedic relief of Clairee
(Cate Campbell) and Ouiser
(Nancy Porter).
Is there any better line to
enter stage with than "This
is it. I have had it. I am in
Hell" as Ouiser (Porter)
does in a hilarious get-up
of stockings, tennis shoes, a
fur coat, wide-brimmed hat
and pearls, all to the con-
trast of her foil: the sharp-
witted, perfectly primped,
horizon-expanding Clairee


(Campbell).
Just as Ouiser and
Clairee complement each
other on-stage, so do Porter
and Campbell, the latter
of whom perfectly imitates
Clairee's self-important
mannerisms and stir-the-
pot *mentality, and the for-
mer attacks every line with
side-splitting comedic tim-
ing. Though Porter does not
have the same venomous
bite as Shirley MacLaine
(who does?), her delivery
of the film's most famous
lines is immaculate (nuns
going bar-hopping comes to
mind), and Clairee is hand-
ed the best ad-libs ("Empty
is the head that wears the
crown").
Cuchens and Ealum sup-
port the comedic duo with
their own blend of self-
deprecating humor-Truvy
(Ealum) recounting her-
lackluster love life and An-
nelle (Cuchens) praying,
and apologizing, at the drop
of a hat.


These Steel Magnolias
bring a fabulous rendition
of a Southern classic to the
stage. Jones declared of the
cast, "The six of you are ev-
erything I could have asked
for" and dedicated the per-
formance to her best friend
and mentor Misty Rock-
man Williams, who battled
cancer until April 2010
with the same philosophy

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012


People






Quilting



in the



Sunshine -



Despite the



Rain


BETTY DAVEY received the Viewers Choice Award for her quilt, "Patience and Fortitude."


On Friday and Sat-
urday, February 17 and
18, more than 528 people
attended the Chautau-
qua Quilters Guild's first
stand-alone quilt show.
More than 170 quilts
were displayed in the
DeFuniak Springs Com-
munity Center. The dis-
play included 25 quilts
from guest presenters,
members of the Country
Patchers' Quilt Guild of
Crestview These quilts
represented many days,
months, and even years of
work. It would be difficult
to place a value on these
"one-of-a-kind" items.
Many local residents
came to view the displays
along with others from
nearby cities and coun-
ties. Many others were
"snowbirds" from the
states of Indiana, Rhode
Island, Oregon, Michi-
gan, Pennsylvania, and
others. There were even
attendees from Wales,
England, and Canada.
Eight commercial ven-
dors were present coming
from as far away as Apop-
ka, Fla. They stayed busy
most of the time with ex-
cited customers. The two
guilds were busy selling
their hand-made items as
well as used books, maga-
zines, and patterns. Free
classes and demonstra-
tions were held on vari-
ous sewing, quilting, and
cutting techniques.
Snacks and lunch were
available, provided by


the Chautauqua Hall of
Brotherhood Foundation
to help with their eleva-
tor fund.
The quilts were pro-
fessionally displayed on
custom built stands built,
by Cecil Turner of Mossy
Head.
This show represent-
ed many skilled quilters
who were worthy of hav-
ing their work displayed
in such a venue allowing
visitors to benefit from
viewing their beauty and
uniqueness. All attending
were rewarded, and many
were inspired by having
experienced such unique
art displayed in such a
fitting setting.
Attendees were asked
to vote for their favorites
in the categories of both
larger and smaller quilts.
The resulting Viewers'
Choice Awards went to
Betty Davey of the Coun-
try Patchers' Quilt Guild
of Crestview for her large
quilt entitled "Patience
and Fortitude" (91 inches
by 96 inches), and to Eliz-
abeth Owens of Chau-
tauqua Quilters Guild
of DeFuniak Springs for
her smaller quilt entitled
"Mini Baltimore" (17
inches by 17 inches).
Winner of the Op-
portunity Quilt entitled
"Florida Sunshine" was
Sharman Grant of Cali-
fornia. Funds earned
from this, project will go
to Chautauqua Quilters
Guild's upcoming com-


munity projects including
organizing and teaching
sewing classes for youth
through the 4-H pro-
gram.
Many wonderful com-
ments were heard as at-
tendees exited the show.
Some of the written com-
ments left behind includ-
ed the following:
"Love it all -- quilts,
vendors, demonstrations,
guild crafts sale, etc."
"Do it every year...."
"The quilts are beauti-
ful -- Thank you for show-
ing."
"This is very interest-
ing and hope it gets big-
ger.

Despite the requests by
many for the show to be ev-
ery year, the Chautauqua
Quilters Guild will plan
for biennial quilt shows
to allow time for making
the beautiful works of art
these quilts become and
to make preparation for
another show in 2014 ...
hopefully bigger and bet-
ter than this one.
As Lesa Harrison, quilt
show chairman, said,
"These quilts are works
of art... and works of
heart!"
Those interested in up-
coming quilting classes
being offered soon for both
youth and adults should
call the Walton County
Extension office (UF/
IFAS) at 892-8172. Men
and women interested in
joining the Chautauqua
Quilters Guild can call
Lesa at (850) 585-2796.


ELIZABETH OWENS also carried home Viewers Choice honors for her "Mini Baltimore"
quilt.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
I am in a quandary over
an issue with my family. Our
father passed on so long ago
and he didn't leave a will.
Our mother passed many
years before. There are three
of us and my brother and
sister are fighting like cats
and dogs over every little
thing. They fought through-
out the funeral about every
detail and now are fighting
over what little bit my dad
had left. I have been staying
out of it as much as possible,
but both of them want me to
take sides. Do you have any
advice? I feel like I am losing
what little bit of family I had
left over items and property
that aren't really worth that
much. I don't quite under-
stand the reasoning behind


Family feud


Dear Family,
I have to admit, it
never really surprises me
how people react over a few
dollars. They don't under-
stand the life-long damages
they create with ill will and
greed. I think you can take
away a few lessons from this
issue.
The first lesson is to pre-
plan and prepare for your-
own passing. Those who
specify and preplan, legally,
what they want for their
services as well as having
a solid legal will, save their
heirs from going through
what you are dealing with
now. Many may say that it
is morbid to preplan every-
thing, but I disagree and
say it is a last act of love to
save those dear to you from
having to make choices at a
tough time when you could
have easily made when
alive.
As far as the arguing, I
would stay out of it as much
as possible. Be Switzerland,
be neutral, but if you really
believe one of your siblings
is misbehaving or going
against your parents' wish-
es, I wouldn't hold back, but
speaking up has a price and
you need to really ask your-
self will all of this be impor-


tant a year from now, or two
years from now.
I not only think
people do this because of
greed, but they are hun-
gry for something they feel
they didn't get from their
parents, or they think they
deserve from them. Maybe
they weren't mom's favor-
ite or dad didn't give them
enough attention, but this is
their last attempt or grasp
at getting that love by get-
ting those things into their
possession.
If you value people and
memories more than things,
you can try to guide your
siblings back together with
kind words and reason, but
I have the feeling they are
fighting over something you
can't give them: unresolved
issues with their parents.
You can't fix that, but you


can make sure it doesn't
happen again. Good luck
and God bless.

Make Your Home with Me............ By Ronnie McBrayer


Lately, one of Jesus' more
cryptic phrases has been
making laps inside my head.
I came back across his words
while reading the Passion
accounts in the Gospels, this
year quickly speeding to-
ward the Lenten season as it
is. These words were spoken
on the last night Jesus was
with his disciples: "Abide in
me, and I will abide in you."
Abide. That's not a word
we use every day. Personal-
ly, the word "abide" reminds
me of the old Stamps-Baxter
hymns I grew up singing in
church. Those hymns were
loaded with phrases from
the old English, and we
were forever singing about
abiding, bringing in the
sheaves, or that glad re-
union day. The word "abide"
also conjures up images of
Jeff Bridges and Sam El-
liot at the conclusion of The
Big Lebowski, but I think
I should stick with Jesus
here.
With the invitation to
"abide," Jesus was welcom-
ing his disciples to remain
connected with him and to
spiritually rely upon him.
Jesus was simply saying,
"Stay put. Don't move away.
Don't abandon your rela-
tionship with me." Eugene
Peterson gets right to it
when he translated Jesus
words like this, "Make your
home in me just as I do in
you.
Now, that's not so cryp-
tic after all; we understand
home quite well. Home is
where each day begins and
where each day ends. Home
is where we eat, rest, relax,
take shelter, play, and love.
Home is where we go when
there is no other place left,
and where we always re-


turn.
Home is that glorious
place where we can walk
around in our socks and
underwear, scratch our
backsides without worry-
ing about who is looking,
and lounge around on the
weekend without showering
or shaving if we so choose.
Home is where we can drop
all our burdens, barriers
and coping mechanisms.
Home is sweet, it is where
the heart is, and it is our
castle. It is where we bring
the bacon and where we
wait for the cows to arrive.
Home is like no other place
in the world, and no matter


where or how far we travel,
home is where we always
call, well, home. It is where
we feel safe, secure, and ul-
timately, where we can be
ourselves. Jesus said, "Make
your home" relax and be
yourself "with me."
But have you ever had
a home that really wasn't
home? Rather, it was a place
of conflict, bitter tug-o-wars,
fear, or even violence and
abuse? Some of us have lived
in these exact situations,
and realize' the liberating
implications of Jesus' invi-
tation. We can quit trying so
hard at trying so hard. We
don't have to work to keep


the peace, we can simply en-
joy it. We can set aside our
anxieties and fears, and curl
up on the couch and collapse
in contentment, at home
with Christ.
I believe that a large portion
of our personal suffering
stems from the fact that we
often go looking for "home"
in all the wrong places. The
wrong career, the wrong
person or relationship, the
wrong ambitions: We are
searching for that comfort-
able place where we can
prop our shoeless feet on the
coffee table and be accepted
as the real, natural people
that we are.

E

Q


When that no-strings-at-
tached acceptance is not
forthcoming, we begin
to work, worry, toil and
sweat, manipulate and be
manipulated, all in an at-
tempt to get others to take
us as we are. We end up be-
ing strangers to ourselves,
living within the artificial
structures we have created,
but it sure isn't home sweet
home. It's miserable. But it
doesn't have to be that way.
We can give ourselves over
to Christ, in total depen-
dence, and find rest for our
homesick souls.
.European mystic, Francois
de Fenelon, wrote to one


of his students who had fi-
nally figured out a bit of this
"abiding" business. He said,
"Nothing makes me hap-
pier than seeing you peace-
ful and simple. Isn't it just
like paradise?" I don't know
about paradise, but it sure
is a lot like coming home.

Emptiness
Ecclesiastes 6:1, "There is an evil which I have seen
under the sun, and it is common among men; (2) A man
to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so
that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth,
yet God giveth not power to eat thereof, but a stranger
eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease."
Emptiness prevails in many lives today, and man is
always seeking fulfillment in something.
The great man of wisdom, King Solomon, saw it then
in mens' lives.
Today it is a common thing among our ranks. But of all
that man gets, he cannot fill that place in his heart, that
was made for Jesus to live in.
While you read, there may be something missing in
your life. Jesus wants to fill that emptiness.
The Bible said in Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall
call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." And that
emptiness filled.
Psalm chapter 73, verse 2 says, "But as for me, my
feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped."
Don't wait too late, or for the sands
of the hour glass, time is passing by
Jesus is coming soon. He wants to fill
that vacuum.
God bless you until we come this
way again.

during the first eight min-
utes of play.
"I thought we came out
a bit intimidated by them,"
coach Craig would comment
after the game. "We didn't
get many shots off early and
they set the tempo and took
some of the pressure off by
making early shots and forc-
ing mistakes."
PDL (26-2) held a 17-6 ad-
vantage after the first quar-
ter as six different players
put points on the scoreboard

during the quarter. The Pi-
rates controlled the pace of
the game and shut down the
Seahawks' perimeter shoot-
ing early on.
PDL coach Tim Alford
burned a timeout of his own
with 6:24 left in the first half
and his team leading 22-12.
The Pirates got seven points
from senior guard Kaitlyn
Carroll in the first quarter
and got everyone involved
in the offense as eight dif-
ferent players scored before
intermission.
South Walton was unable
to get anything going on the
interior but did make three
shots from behind the arc to
go with four free throws to
get within 22-17. PDL, how-
ever, closed the half with a
9-2 run to hold a 31-19 ad-
vantage at intermission.
The second half began
as a defensive battle that
saw both teams' offenses
struggle to put points on
the board. Midway through
the third quarter, PDL held


a 35-24 lead as both teams
struggled with their ball-
handling to limit scoring op-
portunities.
Freshman Delilah Bass
and junior Ashley Harper
connected on three point
shots on back-to-back pos-
sessions late in the quarter
to stretch the lead to 41-24
with less than two minutes
to play in the third quarter,
seemingly ending the chanc-
es of a Seahawks comeback.
South Walton battled to
within 44-37 near the mid-
point of the fourth quarter
only to see the Pirates hit a
basket for a 46-37 lead, then
burn a timeout to rest the
starters with 3:25 left in the
game.
The Seahawks (21-9) sent
the Pirates to the line for a
majority of the final three
minutes of the game but the
host squad made enough
shots to pull away for a 56-
42 win.
Ashley Harper led the Pi-
rates with 13 points while


County
Jasmine Flock added 12
points of her own. South
Walton had no players in
double figures with Tayler
Menard leading the way
with eight points before
leaving the game in the sec-
ond half with an apparent
knee injury.
"We wanted to get an
early lead at home and force
them to have to come after
us," coach Tim Alford said
after the Pirates earned
their sixth trip to the Final
Four during his tenure. "The
girls played about as well as
we could have hoped and I
couldn't be more proud. We
still have a big step ahead of
us in Lakeland, but we are
within reach of our goal."
.South Walton had ad-
vanced to the Region 2 Final
after defeating Graceville
47-33 on Feb. 14. Senior
Mackenzie Watson scored
20 points in that contest
with 14 coming in the first
quarter as the Seahawks
raced to a 19-10 lead over

in Final Four


the District 3 runner-up.
The Seahawks were able to
control the rebounding in
that contest as they held a
24-18 lead at the half and
39-30 after three quarters of
play.
The Pirates got to the
Region 2 Final by defeating
Port St. Joe in the opening
round of the Class A play-
offs on Feb. 14 by a score of
52-17. PDL scored the first
16 points of the game before
the visiting Sharks got on
the scoreboard with a three-
point shot with three min-
utes left in the first quarter.
Port St. Joe scored the last
six points of the quarter to
cut the lead to 16-6 after
eight minutes of play as the
host squad ran into turnover
issues over the last two min-
utes of the opening stanza.
The Pirates exploded in
the second quarter for 16
straight points to take a
32-6 lead before the Sharks
could stop the bleeding with
a basket at the 4:11 mark to
cut the margin to 32-8. The
Pirates forced the Sharks
into taking most of their
shot attempts from behind
the arc while controlling the
rebounding to hold a 36-10
lead at intermission.
The Pirates wasted no
time icing the game in the
second half of play as they
stretched the lead to more
than 35 points as Ash-
ley Harper hit a shot that
pushed the lead past the
Mercy Rule (48-12), meaning
the clock would run without
stopping for the final 11:30
of the game.
The Pirates were out-
scored 3-0 in the fourth
quarter as PDL coach Tim
Alford substituted liberally
in a contest that barely took
70 minutes to complete.


Senior center Jasmine
Flock had 15 points to lead
the Pirates with junior Ash-
ley Harper adding 14 points
of her own.
Port St. Joe saw only
three players get on the
scoreboard with Katie La-
cour leading the way with
nine points. The Sharks,
who finished as the runner-
up to South Walton in Dis-
trict 4, finished the year
with a 16-10 mark.
The Pirates (26-2) are set
to face off against county ri-
val Holmes County (15-12)
in one of two state semi-
final contests to be played
in Lakeland on the morn-
ing of Feb. 21. The winner
of that contest will face the
survivor of the Newberry-
Hilliard game for the Class
A girls state championship
on Wednesday morning at 9
a.m. Details of these games
were unavailable as the De-
Funiak Herald went to press
on Tuesday afternoon.
Team Notes: South Wal-
ton is 2-2 in the state play-
offs under coach Kevin
Craig. Coach Craig ended
his 8th season with a record
of 147-74 at the school. PDL
holds a playoff mark of 34-
17 since their first trip to the
playoffs after the 1977-78
season. Tim Alford is 376-
138 in his 17th season at the
school. Senior Jasmine Flock
enters the last two games of
her career with 1,143 points
scored. The Lady Pirates
have already defeated Hol-
mes County twice this sea-
son, 64-47 in Bonifay and
74-58 in December to claim
the Holmes County Tour-
nament. The Pirates have
won 18 consecutive games
against the Bluedevils, dat-
ing back to a 50-29 loss in
PDL on Feb. 4, 2003.

Freeport's softball teams falls 7-0 to Baker at home


By REID TUCKER
Freeport's Lady Bulldogs
held Baker to a 1-0 lead
through the fifth inning,
but the visiting Gators add-
ed six runs before the end of
the sixth to sweep their dis-
trict opponents.

Baker's Chassity Mc-
Cranie gave up just four
hits in seven innings of play
and she struck out twice
that many Freeport batters,
while four members of the
Gators' roster had two hits
to their credit. Another four
batters had one hit for a to-
tal of 14 hits for Baker (2-


1). Freeport pitcher Tannyr
Lamica, on the other hand,
had a single K and walked
six batters for the Bulldogs
(1-3).

The game, played Friday,
Feb. 17, started off with
a run from Baker's Macie
Wilde, who walked on but
managed to steal her way
around the bases on passed
balls. Freeport looked to
even up the score when Ar-
cher came around on a fast-
ball for a double, but she
was left on second base as
the next Freeport batters
were thrown out.


The game continued
quickly, with neither team
gaining the advantage on
the bags, though Freeport's
Sara Duross was poised to
strike from third base in the
bottom of the second. Both
pitchers did solid work from
the mound, with Lamica
working well in concert with
her fielders to keep Baker
out of scoring position, while
McCranie was able to accu-
mulate more strikeouts for
some three-up-three-down
innings.

However, the brisk pace
ended in the top of the fifth


inning when Wilde, the Ga-
tors' lead-off batter, singled
for the second time. A field-
ing error at second base en-
abled Wilde to advance and
put Tori Foster on first, and
then Holly Stanley loaded
the bases with a single to
deep right field. Tory Kil-
crease poled one on the
second pitch to bring Wilde
and Foster home to make it
a 3-0 ballgame, a lead that
was quickly extended when
Hanna Wadsworth got an
RBI single to bring Stan-
ley around the bases before
Freeport could get three
outs.


McCranie and the Baker
infielders retired the first
three Freeport batters in
order in the bottom of five.
After that, the Gators con-
tinued on their roll, as, after
the next batter in rotation
was thrown out at first base,
the next eight batters in a
row got on base as Lamica
gave up four hits, two walks
and made contact with a bat-
ter, while the fielders com-
mitted two errors. Kilcrease
doubled into the right field
gap to bring in Foster and
Wilde once again to make it
a 6-0 ballgame and it wasn't
long before Kaitlan Godwin


drove in Stanley.

Freeport was able to get
a runner on second after a
hit and a steal, but pop-outs
and a strikeout from Mc-
Cranie soon put Baker back
up to the plate for the top
of the seventh inning. The
Gators loaded the bases one
last time but could not con-
vert several good looks and
another Freeport error into
any more runs. Freeport's
last at-bat was a short one,
as two pop-ups to left and
a final K from McCranie
sealed the deal on the 7-0
Baker win.

Lady Cats end season 22-5

Paxton falls by two points to Holmes County in regional semifinals


By REID TUCKER
Holmes County rallied
from a 12-point halftime
deficit to defeat Paxton's
girls' basketball team in a
56-54 heartbreaker in the
regional semifinals.
The Lady Cats (22-5)
found their match in the
Blue Devils (14-12) on the
night of Tuesday, Feb. 14,
and, in front of a packed
home crowd, saw a 35-23
lead at the end of the first
half evaporate as Holmes
County outshot them from
the floor in the second half.
Holmes County dominated
the third quarter, going
7-for-14 from the field to
Paxton's 2-for-6 mark good
enough for a 15-3 scoring
streak in the Blue Devils'
favor. Though Paxton still
led 40-38 at the end of the
period, that lead was short-
lived as Holmes County
quickly tied the game at the
onset of the fourth quarter
to surge ahead, precipitat-
ing a scrappy conclusion to
the contest in the final min-
utes of play.
Paxton coach Steve Wil-
liams attributed the loss to
several factors, the big three
of which were a change of
defensive tactics on Holmes
County's part, missed shots
in the second half and es-
pecially the pressure of the


potential for a state finals
appearance. Nevertheless,
he was pleased with the
team's otherwise stellar sea-
son. Highlights included the
program's eighth-straight
district championship and,
perhaps more significantly,
the fact that all five of Pax-
ton's losses came by a total
of 10 points.
"One game doesn't make
or break their season or ca-
reer," Williams said. "We're
very disappointed that we
didn't continue on but you
have to move on and we
will. Overall, I couldn't be
more proud of the kids and
the work they did and the
things they accomplished
this year. They have no rea-
son to hang their heads."
Mikayla Moore and
Cierra Davis accounted
for the majority of Holmes
County's points, scoring 18
and 14, respectively, but
the Blue Devils had consis-
tent help from their entire
squad in running a press-
heavy defense most of the
night. Moore scored all but
four of her points after the
half, when Holmes County
switched up the press for a
man-to-man defense Paxton
had a hard time adjusting
to.
The Lady Cats' top scorer
was Emily Murray, who had

DEFENSE, a counter to Holmes County's press, though she
also scored 9 points on the night. (Photo courtesy of Laurie

24 points from mostly field
goals, while Alyssa Dupree
scored 13 points from a mix-
ture of shots from the floor
and free throws. Dupree
went 7-for-12 at the stripe,
which, unfortunately for
the home team, amounted
to half of the team's missed
free-throws. By contrast, the
entire Holmes County squad
had just five free-throw at-
tempts the whole night and
they sank three of them.
The first quarter ended
in an 11-11 dead heat but
Paxton scored 24 points to
Holmes County's 12 in the
second quarter on the backs
of Murray, Dupree and Re-
becca Ferreira, all of whom
punched in shots from the
paint and the perimeter.
Murray, in particular, stood
out in the second period,
scoring 12 points from all


ranges despite the pressure
supplied by the 'Devils' de-
fense.
However, Holmes County
emerged from the locker
room a seemingly different
team, preventing Paxton
from getting on the score-
board until halfway through
the third period while si-
multaneously utilizing the
fast break to punch in layup
after layup. Aside from a
2-pointer from Maegan New-
born and a 3 and another 2
from Murray, Paxton spent
the majority of the period at
the free-throw line, where
the Lady Cats collectively
took 13 shots but scored
only seven points. Paxton
went 16-for-26 at the stripe
on the night.
The score was tied
at 43-all with a little more
than five minutes left in the


game, but Holmes Coun-
ty took a two-point lead
shortly thereafter and did
not look back for the dura-
tion. Moore put in a brace of
2-pointers punctuated by a
shot from the arch to push
the Blue Devils into a 48-
43 lead at the 4:00-mark,
though Paxton rallied back
to within three points a few
seconds later. Back-to-back
Holmes County turnovers
enabled the Lady Cats to tie
the game at 51-all with less
than two minutes remaining
and again at 53-all with just
35 seconds on the clock.
Moments later,
Moore put in an and-1 for a
56-54 lead from which Pax-
ton could not recover in the
20-odd seconds left in the
game.
The Holmes County win
not only ended the Lady
Cats' season but also pro-


pelled the Blue Devils to a
state final four appearance,
where they faced perennial
rival Ponce de Leon in Lake-
land on Tuesday. The result
of the game was not avail-
able at press time.

Code board decision

on "wedding house"

affirmed by court


By DOTTY NIST
A Walton County Code
Enforcement Board (CEB)
finding of a repeat violation
with a large Seagrove Beach
rental home often used for
weddings, receptions, and
other large gatherings has
been affirmed in court.
The owners of the home,
Karen and Reppard Ben-
, nett, had filed the lawsuit in
response to the code board's
May 19, 2011, decision.
which had charged them
with a repeat violation of
county code due to the home
allegedly being used in a
"nonresidential manner" for
the gatherings, based on the
frequency of the events. The
beach home is located in a
Residential Preservation
Area land use district.
The property owners had
been ordered by the CEB to
cease and desist the use of
the home in this manner,
and daily fines of $500 per
day were imposed, set up to
continue until such time as
the code was determined to
have been complied with.
Judge LaPorte found


that, in its decision, the CEB
did not depart from the es-
sential requirements of the
law, that the board did not
violate due process, and that
its decision was supported
by competent substantial
evidence.
The May 19 court ruling
is not final, as time remains
for the property owners to
file a motion for rehearing.
In December 2010, Judge
LaPorte had affirmed the
CEB's original finding of
violation with regard to the
use of the home.
Another case filed by the
Bennetts in response to the
CEB's finding of repeat vio-
lation is still pending in Wal-
ton County Circuit Court.
Filed in June 2011, the law-
suit alleges- constitutional
violations by the county in
connection with the CEB
decision. Mediation efforts
had been underway with the
case. However, on Feb. 14,
Lynn Hoshihara, interim
attorney for Walton County,
stated that those efforts had
concluded and that the liti-
gation would proceed.

Suzanne Harris removed as TDC member


By DOTTYNIST
Suzanne Harris, presi-
dent of the homeowners'
association for Edgewater
Beach condominium, has
been removed as a member
of the South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC).
The decision took place at
the Feb. 14 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting at
the South Walton Court-
house Annex.
County Commission
Chairman Scott Brannon,


who also serves as chairman
of the tourism council, said
that a number of complaints
and concerns had been com-
municated to him about
Harris' continuing presence
on the council.
"Ms. Harris has been a
vocal opponent against this
board, and this county as a
whole on numerous issues
since she became a TDC
council member," Brannon
said. "While I respect her
right to voice those opin-
ions," he continued, "her
method of doing so has been


derogatory and detrimental
to this county. Currently,
we are in litigation with
her, and she floods cottnty
administration with public
records requests that have
paralyzed and consumed
county administration."
Currently Harris has a
lawsuit pending in circuit
court seeking to negate the
purchase of a parcel on Chat
Holley Road by the county.
Brannon maintained
that, through her actions,
Harris had violated the TDC
code of conduct, which she


had signed upon becoming a
member of the council
Passing the gavel to Dis-
trict 2 Commissioner Ken-
neth Pridgen, Brannon made
a motion to remove Harris
from the tourism council, ef-
fective immediately, and di-
rect TDC Executive Director
Dawn Moliterno to post the
vacancy and follow the pro-
cess established by the BCC
in 2011 to fill it.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones asked if the
action would require a mo-
tion or if Harris could be


asked to resign.
Lynn Hoshihara, interim
county attorney, responded
that a motion would be re-
quired, since it is the au-
thority of the BCC to ap-
point TDC members.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander inquired
about the possibility of ask-
ing Harris to "step aside"
from the council pending
the conclusion of her litiga-
tion against the county.

By DOTTY NIST

County commissioners
have voted to discontinue a
suspension of building per-
mits for the interior of the
Driftwood subdivision.
The decision, which took
place at the Feb. 14 Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing, put the county commis-
sion at odds with Driftwood
residents. The homeowners
were calling for suspen-
sion of all county services,
including building permit
issuance---not only for the
Driftwood interior but for all
property within the Sandes-
tin development of regional
impact (DRI). They have
threatened to take the mat-
ter to court.
Most of Driftwood, an
arrowhead-shaped subdivi-
sion fronting Mack Bayou,
was included in the Sandes-
tin DRI master plan, which
Walton County approved
in 1976. Driftwood borders


the Sandestin property. Al-
though under separate own-
ership and with its roadway
connection with Sandestin
walled off, Driftwood is still
officially a part of the Sand-
estin DRI.
Flooding and inadequate
stormwater drainage and
have been big complaints
within Driftwood for a num-
ber of years, especially since
development began within
the interior of the subdivi-
sion, where 463 homes are
planned. Access has been
another big issue, since the
subdivision has only one
entrance/exit road and it is
subject to flooding.
Residents have allr.dl
that compliance with the
DRI and the ,li\,'liiiiiiiit
order associated with the
DRI are lacking in a number
of ways. On Jan. 10, Shown
Heath, the attorney repro-
senting the Driftwood rwsio
dents, made the argument
that the county could not
legally issue any permits or


approvals---or extend servic-
es anywhere within the DRI
due to violation of the de-
velopment order. He based
that contention on Florida
Statute 380.06, which sets
out local governments' re-
sponsibilities with regard to
DRIs.
Due to concerns about
potential noncompliance,
county commissioners had
voted on Jan. 10, with the
encouragement of Driftwood
homeowners, to suspend
building permit issuance in
Block G of the interior of the
Driftwood subdivision. This
was to allow time for county
staff to evaluate the poten-
tial noncompliance issues.
At their Jan. 24 niitling.
at the recommendation of
county alinff and legal coun-
sol, the BCC had voted to
continue that suspension in
order to allow ltil h'r evalu-
i li ii due to concerns with
stormwater dl:rinir.e and

residents arrested on


methamphetamine charges


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) last week
arrested Sandra Tanksley,
31, and James Young, 48,
of Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.,
on methamphetamine drug
charges. The WCSO inves-
tigation began after a state
probation officer requested
WCSO investigators to as-
sist in a routine residence
check occupied by Young
who was serving probation.

The probation officer dis-
covered a plastic bag con-
taining a white substance


in Young's pocket. WCSO
vice/narcotics investigators
observed the probation offi-
cer conduct a field-test of the
substance and determined it
was possibly methamphet-
amines. A glass pipe con-
sistent with commonly used
methods for smoking illegal
narcotics was also located
inside the residence.
After a probable cause
search warrant was obtained
and executed, deputies re-
covered what appeared to be
approximately 100 grams of
methamphetamine oil, 100


grams of pseudoephedrine,
and other ingredients and
drug paraphernalia com-
monly used with produc-
tion or use of methamphet-
amines.

Young and Tanksley
were each charged with two
counts of trafficking more
than 14 grams of metham-
phetamine, a first-degree
felony; and one count of
production of methamphet-
amine, a second-degree fel-
ony. They were booked into
the Walton County Jail.

This week, 30A.com in-
troduced its 2012 line of
30A-branded lifestyle prod-
ucts, including a special
"Life Shines Dog" t-shirt de-
sign that will raise money to
help support Walton Coun-
ty's Alaqua Animal Refuge.
Official 30A products are
currently sold in 25 retail
locations throughout south
Walton, with more retail
partners to be announced
soon.

"Ten percent of all profits
from our new 'Life Shines
Dog' t-shirts will be donated
to Alaqua this year," said
30A.com's Mike Ragsdale.
"They're going to be a big
seller."


Last year, the company
partnered with Alaqua to
set-up donation boxes wher-
ever the company's famous
30A stickers are distribut-
ed. That partnership raised
over $14,000 for Alaqua in
its first 12 months alone.
The stickers are sponsored
by Dune Allen Realty Vaca-
tion Rentals, and are given
away locally for free.
"A sense of communal
pride inspires locals and
wannabes to emblazon their
cars with circular Gulf-blue
'30A' stickers," wrote Flori-
da Travel+Life in their new
February issue, and to-date,
the company has given away
over 240,000 decals. Nearly
80,000 fans strong, 30A.


core's Facebook page is one
of Florida's largest online
communities.
The year "2011 was a
trial-run for 30A merchan-
dise, and the test was an
overwhelming success," said
Ragsdale. "This year, we're
tightening up our 'brand
story', refining our color pal-
ette, rolling out a new on-
line store, and possibly even
testing retail sales in a few
feeder markets. The demand
for official 30A-brand gear
has just been amazing."

Other products in 30A's
2012 line-up include a new
"life shines" cap design and
t-shirts designs created es-
pecially for children.


ROLL CALL

A yes vote was to approve the motion.
Recommendation by Lynn Hoshihara, interim county attorney, for the scheduling of an
8 a.m. Feb. 28 executive session for the BCC to discuss litigation strategy with regard to
expenditures for the Suzanne Harris vs. Walton County lawsuit. This is the lawsuit chal-
lenging the Chat Holley purchase.
A motion for approval by Sara Comander carried unanimously: Scott Brannon-yes; Sara
Comander-yes; Cecilia Jones-yes; Larry Jones-yes; Kenneth Pridgen-yes.
After ranking by the individual commissioners via ballots of the five remaining can-
didates for the vacant county attorney position, announcement by Walton County Clerk
of Courts Martha Ingle of the top-ranked candidates: Tony Craig with three number-one
votes, Ken Goldberg with two number-one votes, and Renee Youell with two number-one
votes.
A motion to authorize staff to negotiate with Craig to bring her on board as county at-
torney carried unanimously.
Recommendation by county legal consultant Greg Stewart of Nabors Giblin Nickerson
to lift the suspension of building permit issuance for Block G of the Driftwood subdivi-
sion.
Motion by C. Jones to accept the recommendation of legal counsel.
The motion was approved 3-0: Comander-yes; C. Jones-yes; Pridgen-yes; Brannon-ab-
staining; L. Jones-abstaining.
Request on behalf of Eglin Air Force Base for the participation of Walton County in the
Eglin Small Area Study, which would allow the inclusion of the Rock Hill area in the study.
The study is in conjunction with an environmental assessment for the siting of an airstrip
planned for Eglin Reservation at the C-6 area north of Freeport. The use of the airstrip
would have potential impacts on the Rock Hill area. Walton County's recommended finan-
cial participation in the study was $81,092.
Motion by Comander in favor of the participation. The motion was approved unani-
mously.
Motion by L. Jones stating that the BCC will not consider the tolling of the U.S. 331
bay bridge as an option to provide $75 million in matching funds for the four-laning of the
bridge, with the amendment that, if a referendum to approve a sales tax increase for the
matching funds does not pass, that the county will ask the state Department of Transpora-
tion to seek funding for the project from another source.
The motion was approved unanimously.
Motion by Comander to set an April 24 referendum in which voters will decide whether
to approve an increase in the sales tax of a half cent on a dollar on taxable purchases, in
order to provide the $75 million in matching funds for the bridge project, with the under-
standing that the funds are to be used for the purpose of the bridge project only, that the
sales tax increase is to be discontinued upon the $75 million being paid off, and that the
increase is not to be extended or expanded for any reason.
The motion was approved unanimously.
Transfer of gavel to Pridgen by Chairman Brannon.
Motion by Brannon to remove Suzanne Harris as a member of the South Walton Tourist
Development Council (TDC) and to direct TDC Executive Director Dawn Moliterno to post
the vacancy and go through the process established by the BCC in 2011 to fill it.
The motion was approved 4-0: Brannon-yes; Comander-yes; C. Jones-yes; Pridgen-yes;
L. Jones-abstaining.
Request by Michael Dean Clark for approval of a small-scale amendment to change 7.27
acres on the east side of U.S. 331 and approximately one-third mile north of Wagon Wheel
Road, from Estate Residential to General Commercial, in order to correct a scrivener's er-
ror.
A motion for approval carried unanimously.
Request by St. Rita Catholic Church for approval of a development agreement between
the county and Bishop of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee Jon H. Ricard, to vest de-
velopment entitlements of the St. Rita's county-approved development plan for a 20-year
period.
A motion for approval carried unanimously.
At the request of Comander, the Tiger IV Grant item was pulled from the Consent
Agenda, and the county will not apply for the grant this year. Application for the grant
could have resulted in $20 to $30 million in grant funds for the four-laning of the U.S. 331
Freeport Bypass segment---but would have required approximately $8 million in matching
funds from the county.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2012


Over the past week, the shocking news of the
death of Whitney Houston has resonated across
the world, and what a tremendous loss we have
all suffered. But with her death, does the press
and the entire nation seem to overlook those he-
roes and superstars that die everyday?


On Feb. 4, the world lost a
singing icon, that for more than
three decades captivated the
world with her voice, her act-
ing ability, and in more recent
years, her fight with a battle
that ultimately took her life.
She had sold more albums than
any other entertainer in his-
tory, racked up more Grammy
awards and other music awards
than anyone else in history and
gave us some of the most beau-
tiful love songs that have ever
been recorded.
But in recent years, her
battle with drug and alcohol
addiction had overshadowed
her numerous years of angelic
singing and the weight of all
her trophies. She was seen as
someone who had lost it all, be-
cause of her addiction and her
marriage to pop singer Bobby
Brown in 1992.
This past week, the cameras
have followed her casket from
the L.A. City Morgue, to the
airport, in the motorcade, to the
funeral home, and then to the
church where her last service
will be, in Newark, N.J. Those
who knew her for a lifetime, or
had just met her once, poured
out their hearts and confessed
to the world how much her life
had changed theirs.
It has been a circus from
Los Angeles, to New York, and
even with her voice silent, her
record sales are through the
roof. America and the world
cannot seem to get enough of
the Queen of Pop's death, just
like the 2009 death of the King
of Pop, Michael Jackson. El-
evated to almost saint status,
these two icons, despite their
problems, were seen as Ameri-


can heroes and the reason that
we look to Hollywood as the
saving grace of our nation.
But what about those thou-
sands of soldiers that have
given and will continue to give
their lives for us to have the
freedom to enjoy music, see
movies, work, marry who we
want and practice religion?
Why do we not have reporters
and camera men, chasing be-
hind the hearse, or trying to get
an interview with their family?
A few days ago, after check-
ing my Facebook page, I ran
across three or four postings
by friends of mine having to do
just with this subject. The pic-
ture was of five, or six rows of
caskets, covered with American
flags, with a simple message
written across the top of the
photo saying, "Whitney who?"
At first, that picture and
quote offended me, and I was
just about to write an ugly com-
ment back to those who posted
that picture, since I grew up
with the songs of Whitney
Houston in her glory years, but
I took a moment. Despite the
sad situation and way the icon
died, she was the biggest loss to
a select part of our nation, the
entertainment industry.
Even though Houston did
much for her country by means
of singing to those over seas
during the Gulf War, and then
singing the most beautiful ren-
dition of the "Star Spangled
Banner" at the 1991 Super
Bowl, she was still just an en-
tertainer that gave her talent
for our country, but not her life.
A life that was celebrated and
mesmerizing, but just that, she
gave her talents, not her life in


the line of fire.
It is very rare, that you have
a reporter who is assigned to
stand outside the airport, or
the funeral home, waiting to
get a shot of an American flag-
covered casket, containing the
body of a fallen soldier. In fact,
the only time that a story about
a fallen hero, hits the front
page of a newspaper, or makes
"breaking news," is when there
is a group of fanatical "nut cas-
es" picketing the fallen soldier.
Many say that there are just
too many fallen to report on the
everyday news, and that report-
ing on a celebrity death brings
us back to reality! But the real-
ity is that without these fallen
men and women, we wouldn't
even have the chance to enjoy
the types of entertainment that
we have in America.
America's fascination with
Hollywood and celebrities, has
been an ongoing attraction,
since Marilyn Monroe and
Charlie Chaplin. Moreover, ce-
lebs make even bigger headlines
when they are found dead. The
obsession with celebrities, their
careers, their personal lives,
and for many, their tragic, and
highly-publicized deaths, keeps
magazines and newspapers,
flying off the shelves, and fans
glued to the TV set.
But when has it been more
important to turn from all the
celeb news, and concentrate on
the lives and history of the men
and women who wear the U.S.
military uniform? At what point
will their lives, overshadow the
lives of those few who run from
the paparazzi, and follow the
trip home of a fallen soldier?
Now don't get me wrong, I
get a kick out of seeing Holly-
wood's select getting busted for
breaking the law, or in finding


out just what makes them tick,
but like many, the fascination
stops there. The reason I watch
television, is to see how the real
heroes of our nation are surviv-
ing the roadside bombs in Iraq,
or what troops safely made it
home to a hero's welcome, after
serving two years in a hostile
country.
Since the war began nearly
a decade ago, many networks
have dedicated portions of their
news broadcast to those heroes,
and those who have helped in
the war effort. Even those net-
works, magazines and newspa-
pers who oppose the war, have
felt the pressure from millions
to start dedicating even more
print space and airtime to the
U.S. Armed Forces, those who
have made it back to American
soil, or who have been flown
back in a casket that is adorned
with an American flag.
As America turns to 24-
hour news feeds and constant
updates on world events at
the touch of a cell phone but-
ton, millions of Americans,
hope that more attention will
be paid to our troops and their
daily lives. Of course we still
need Hollywood to put a smile
on our face, or make us think
about the world around us, but
that should be the extent of all
the coverage that they receive.
Our concentration and
thoughts should reflect the days
of World War II, when everyone
gathered around the radio, and
then the television, to hear the
latest on the war effort. It was
also a time when families could
learn more about what it meant
to be a true American, and only
followed the celebs when it was
time to pay a nickel to see them
on the big screen.
God bless our troops!

Do Black Patent

Leather Shoes Really

Reflect Up? Musical

Comedy March 14-17

at NWFSC


Northwest Florida State
College (NWFSC) will pres-
ent the delightful musical,
Do Black Patent Leather
Shoes Really Reflect Up?
on Wednesday, March 14
through Saturday, March
17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Sprint
Theater of the Mattie Kelly
Fine & Performing Arts
Center in Niceville, Fla.
The show captures the com-
edy, music, and tenderness
of growing up in Catholic
school in the 1950s and'60s.
Heartwarming and laugh-
out-loud funny, the play fol-
lows a loveable gang of kids
as they travel through that
special place that was Cath-
olic school.
Tickets are on sale now
for $20 adults and $15 for
youth ages 18 and younger.
Purchase tickets online at
www.mattiekellyartscenter.
org or by phone at (850) 729-
6000. The box office hours
rre 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mon-
'lay to Friday. The Mattie
Kelly Arts Center is located
at 100 College Boulevard on
the college's Niceville cam-
pus. There is a $2 per ticket
box office processing fee.
"The Sprint Theater is the
smaller of our two theater
spaces at the Mattie Kelly


Arts Center," noted Dr. Cliff
Herron, dean of the college's
fine and performing arts
programs. "But, this comedy
really lends itself best to the
more intimate space in the
Sprint Theater, rather than
our huge mainstage, so we
encourage folks to purchase.
tickets early as the seating
is limited to 169 per night."
Theater professor Clint
Mahle, who also works as
the college's scenic design
coordinator, will direct
the play. "We're thrilled to
present this comedy and to
showcase our great theater
students and community ac-
tors," said Mahle, who noted
the show normally breaks
attendance records wherev-
er it plays. "Gleeful audienc-
es flocked to see this show
in Chicago, where it became
that city's longest running
show, and in Philadelphia,
where it broke attendance
records during its two runs,
and in cities across the coun-
try over the years."

Do Black Patent Leather
Shoes Really Reflect Up?, is
based on the book by John
R. Powers, with music and
lyrics by James Quinn and
Alaric Jans.


BAN CO

open space requirements
within the DRI.
On Feb. 14, Greg Stewart
of Nabors Giblin Nickerson,
legal counsel for Walton
County, recommended the
lifting of the building per-
mit suspension due to the
finding that there was "not
a substantial noncompli-
ance with the development
order."
County Administrator
Greg Kisela told the com-
missioners that county staff
was working with Sandestin
on reconciliation of the bian-
nual report on the DRI that
had recently been provided
by the Sandestin owner.
These reports are a require-
ment of the DRI, but the.
homeowners have pointed
out that they had not been
provided under the previous
ownership of Sandestin by
Intrawest.
After a motion by Dis-
trict 5 Commissioner Ce-
cilia Jones for approval of
the staff recommendation,
Heath and some of the
Sandestin residents provid-


NTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


ed testimony. Heath called
the county's position "disap-
pointing and bewildering."
"If we're wrong, please
identify to us why you be-
lieve that to be the case," he
implored.
Heath maintained that
the interior of the Driftwood
arrowhead has remained
designated as open space
per the DRI documents, de-
spite the county's 2003 ap-
proval of the development of
463 home sites in that area,
with that development being
approved with a stormwater
plan not in compliance with
the DRI standard.
Greater Driftwood Es-
tates President Alan Os-
borne protested that the
county was trying to "make
the law match" the exist-
ing development within the
DRI. He urged for existing
laws to be enforced.
Kisela commented that
people have invested in the
lots in question in the inte-
rior. Stewart, he said, had
done a careful evaluation.
Kisela added that said coun-


ty staff was not saying that
there were no compliance is-
sues---but that those issues
had not been determined
to cross the threshold of
being substantial enough
to prohibit the issuance of
building permits.
"This is a difficult deci-
sion," said District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander.
Comander said, that while
not accusing anyone of be-
ing untruthful, it seemed
that the BCC was looking
at two sets of evidence, one
from staff and one from the
homeowners. She said she
knew there were two sides
to every story.
Stewart commented that,
by looking at entire docu-
ments rather than the "snip-
pets" provided by Heath in
his presentation, one gets a
different perspective on the
issues involved.
"Let the court decide,"
Heath responded, recom-
mending that the county
put a temporary injunction
on building permit issuance
and wait for a judge to de-


cide the matter.
Comander answered that
three court rulings had al-
ready confirmed that the.
county had acted correctly
with regard to Driftwood.
Lynn Hoshihara, interim
county attorney, advised the
commissioners against the
temporary injunction that
Heath had suggested.
South Walton County res-
ident Mary Nielson urged
the BCC to evaluate what
it would cost to "fix" Driftw-
wod versus the cost of being
involved in a lawsuit.

With District 1 Commis-
sioner Scott Brannon and
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones abstaining
due to business affiliations,
the BCC voted 3-0 in favor
of Stewart's recommenda-
tion to lift the suspension
on building permits in the
Driftwood interior.
Comander urged staff to
renew their efforts to obtain
a grant to improve Drift-
wood's flood-prone access
roadway.


'LH A RRIS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


the BCC could discuss the
matter but that he was re-
questing immediate action
on his motion.
Upon examining the TDC
code of conduct, Comander
seconded Brannon's motion.
The motion was approved
4-0, with District 3 Commis-
sioner Larry Jones abstain-
ing. Jones had explained
that he would abstain from
voting because Harris had
filed a complaint against
him with the Florida Com-
mission on Ethics which
was pending.

Contacted on Feb. 16,
Harris deferred to her attor-
ney, State Representative


Matt Gaetz, for comment on
the BCC action.
Gaetz observed that he
did not believe that Harris
had violated the TDC code of
conduct, adding that he did
not think Brannon had cited
any specific violation of that
code of conduct when mo-
tioning for Harris' removal.
"This was sort of a bul-
lying tactic used to cause
her to drop her litigation...
it won't be effective," Gaetz
said.
On Feb. 9, Harris had filed
a motion in Walton County
Circuit Court for a contempt
order against Brannon,
based on his alleged use of
an email account for official


county business other than
his official county email ac-
count.
As part of a December
2009 settlement of a previ-
ous lawsuit filed by Har-
ris against the county, one
involving public records,
a court order had directed
that Walton County com-
missioners use only their
official email accounts for
county business.
Harris provided examples
of Brannon's alleged unlaw-
ful use of a private e-mail
account as part of her Feb.
9 motion and also to the me-
dia.
Gaetz remarked that it
was "quite the coincidence"

PAGE 12-C THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23,2012


Martha Ingle addresses WRWF


By DOTTY NIST

Martha Ingle, Walton
County Clerk of Courts,
shared an interesting ac-


count of the history of Wal-
ton County with members
of the Walton Republican
Women Federated (WRWF)
on Feb 15. This was at the


WALTON COUNTY Clerk of Courts Martha Ingle (left)
and WRWF President Karen Schibler. (Photo by Dotty
Nist)


WRWF's regular meeting at
Carrabba's Italian Grill.
Ingle discussed that De-
Funiak Springs has not al-
ways been the county seat.
The first county seat was
Alaqua, then from 1845 to
1886 it, was Eucheanna. In
1886 the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) voted to move
the county seat to DeFuniak
Springs, where it has re-
mained since that time.
Ingle also revealed that
the first records of BCC
meetings date from July 1,
1885. This is because of the
county courthouse, then a
wooden building, burning
dowa _that year. She ex-
plained that a man who had
a legal case coming up had
burned the building to do
away with records that he
did not want presented in
court.
Ingle said she and her


staff have really enjoyed
their space in the court-
house since the building was
expanded five years ago, as
they had gone many years
without an adequate work-
ing area.
Ingle has been elected
three terms as clerk and has
worked a total of 34 years
with the clerk's office.
"I cannot tell you how
much I have thoroughly
enjoyed it," she said of her
service as clerk. Highlights
of the job for her have been
working with people and
providing training to her
employees, she commented.

Ingle is completing her
third term this year and
does not plan to run for re-
election. A top priority in her
retirement will be spend-
ing more time with her two
granddaughers. Ingle said
the girls are counting the


"months and days" until her
retirement.
New WRWF President
Karen Schibler thanked In-
gle for meeting with the club
members and presented her
with a pin on their behalf.
Schibler encouraged
members to "speak up" over
the coming months and
"voice their views" to offi-
cials. "We must return our
country to sanity and sol-
vency this year," she said.
"We are keeping watch on
all elected officials," Schibler
remarked.
She added that a web
page for the WRWF was be-
ing set up.
Charlotte Flynt, WRWF
immediate past president
and first vice president for
the Florida Federation of
Republican Women, empha-
sized the concept of "peace
through strength" on the
national level.


On the local level, she
urged citizens to look at the
issues involved with the ref-
erendum on the U.S. 331
bay bridge expansion. He
encouraged them to con-
sider the proposed sales tax
increase for the project not
just from a personal per-
spective but from the stand-
point of what is needed for
the growth of the county.
Flynt noted that, as a
small county, Walton Coun-
ty has been in the situation
of having its transportation
needs funded in part by rev-
enues from gas taxes paid
by people in larger areas.
She asked the members to
consider "what can we do to
make the most of what we
are being given."

The WRWF is sched-
uled to hold its next regu-
lar meeting on March 21 at
Carrabba's.


Wildflower Pilot


Program underway


On Jan. 28, District 5
Commissioner Cecilia Jones,
the Friends of Scenic 30-A,
the Walton County Mas-
ter Gardener's Association,
and Walton County Public
Works Department kicked-
off the first ever Wildflower
Pilot Program. In November
of 2011 the Board of County
Commissioners adopted a
native wildflower resolu-
tion submitted through the
Choctawhatchee Basin Alli-
ance for Walton County and
accepted a $300 donation for
seeds and flowers from the
Friends of Scenic 30A. As the
resolution states, the enjoy-
ment of native wildflowers


will enhance the experience
for residents, businesses and
tourists alike. In addition, it
will have the added benefit
of reducing costs from the
Public Works budget by de-
creasing the frequency and
extent of roadside mowing.
Once the flowers grow, the
right of way will only need
to be mowed once a year as
the flowers will reseed them-
selves.
The Pilot Program was
an opportunity for several
community groups to work
together for the beautifica-
tion, preservation and con-
servation of Waltbn County.
The "Friends" worked in


partnership with the Mas-
ter Gardeners Association
and Public Works to deter-
mine locations where the
pilot program could be initi-
ated for the winter of 2012.
The Master Gardeners As-
sociation planted the seeds
and as mentioned, the Pub-
lic Works Department will
mow the right of way.



7'ILDFLOWIER PI-
LOT PROGRAM lwas
initiated in January.


WALTON COUNTY SNOWBIRD SINGERS rehearsing for the season's debut performance scheduled for 2p.m. March 3 at Santa Rosa Community Church.


The tennis club, the golf leagues and other groups are
having end of season parties, luncheons and get togeth-
ers. How can that be? Didn't we just get here? Just when
it seems the fun has begun, snowbirds are thinking about
what to pack for the journey home. Sure, home is where
the heart is but many keep a piece of it on deposit on the
Emerald Coast. It is a lay-a-way plan for next year when
once again they will join in one or more of dozens of Walton
County Snowbird activities.
Speaking of packing, thanks to Jerry Barton and his squad
of volunteers there is no need to haul that stash north and
south. Store it here courtesy of the Walton County Snow-
birds who manage personal property for a trifling fee at Af-
fordable Storage at 114 Sugar Drive (one mile east of 30A
on Highway 98...south side). A Walton County Snowbird
membership card is a license to store a container, a card ta-
ble, or golf bag for the modest sum of $10; twenty bucks for
a bicycle. Got left over food? Spread a little joy by dropping
it off with your storage goods. The storage gang takes it to
Caring and Slharinv. Hours are 3 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27
and then on Wednesdays, March 7, 14, 21 and 28. Give the
volunteers who make the ,-I i-,;Inge program possible a shout-
out wherever you see them. They are Jim Newell, Bill
Simmons, Bob Collins, lan Keating, David Smith, Bruce
and Kate Blundell, Richard Hensen, Jim Lamphier, Stan


Newby, Bob Langeland, Hugh Barnard, Roger Vilwock and
Herman Block.
The Creative Writing Workshop reports Carol Burrows
captured the highest technical score (100 percent) on Feb.
15 for her story, Cupid's Foul Play. During the same ses-
sion, Bob Algie carried away the Best Story prize for his
untitled story about a woman executive struggling for ac-
ceptance.
A great way to wind down an outstanding snowbird sea-
son is to attend the final general meeting of the year. It
takes place on March 7 at Santa Rosa Beach Community
Church located at 3524 West U.S. 98 where once again at-
tendees will glean great.door prizes and enjoy a program
presented by the Snowbird Singers. Fans don't have to wait
until the General Meeting. On Saturday, March 3, at 2 p.m.
the Singers, augmented by harpist Katie Ott, will present a
concert of favorites, show tunes and a gospel medley, same
location.
Euchre scores just in for Feb. 14 play: First Place, Irene
Hinds, 84, Second Place, Bev Storzer, 76. For men it was
Steve DeMar with 79 and Don Hinds, 77.
The book discussion group will hold its final discussion of
the year at 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 8 at the Confer-
ence Room of the Terrace Building at the Pelican Beach
Resorts. Micki Peterson will facilitate a discussion about


The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.
Rain kept all but four Tuesday golf teams home on Valen-
tine's Day. Karl Bruder's team walked off with the top prize.
Bill Nusbaum's team achieved distinction of sorts when it
sunk the most water balls. The Thursday league reported a
three-way tie for first place on Feb. 16: Bob and Fran Seek-
ley and Mike and Ericka Andrassy, then Ray Kempf, John
O'Brien, Darwin Kraus, and Dan Rankin. Joining them was
Ken Lemire and Dave Douglas. Seventy-five golfers made
history by attending the first annual snowbird golf league
luncheon.
Pierce and Betty Martin report bridge winners for
Wednesday afternoon and evening: Clara Horn Jim Han-
dloser and Bernie Blair Dean Kleinschmidt. It is with
deep regret that we report the passing on Feb. 5 of Jean
Emholtz, who with husband Jerry hosted evening bridge
play for many snowbird seasons. RIP. Pat and Ruth Towns
consented to continue the Wednesday evening bridge tradi-
tion.
