DFS Council hears audit report details and



information about invasive plant species


By REID TUCKER
The most recent De-
Funiak Springs City Coun-
cil meeting was a model of
dichotomy, with the major-
ity of the agenda divided
between a report on the an-
nual audit and another on
perennial, invasive weed
species.
The first report, present-
ed by the city's independent
auditors, showed a net de-
crease in assets but posi-
tive growth in the areas of


governmental and business-
type activities. The second
report, presented by the
Walton County Master Gar-
deners Association, showed
evidence that the world's
number-one invasive plant
species had firmly put down
roots in DeFuniak Springs.
Fiscal Year 2011, which
ended last September, fea-
tured increases in govern-
mental and business-type
activities to the tune of a
combined $2,193,104 over


FY2010, but a simulta-
neous increase in liabili-
ties from $53,159,583 .in
FY2010 to $55,352,687 in
FY2011 means the city had
a net decrease in assets of
$1,044,000.
The audit showed the in-
crease to liabilities was due
largely to the city's closing
on a bond anticipation note
in September 2011. The note
is a rural development loan
secured by the city for con-
tinued improvements to the


water system and it is due
to be paid off by July of this
year via a 40-year note from
the federal government.
Governmental activities
contributed $782,517 to the
city's net assets, while busi-
ness activities contributed
$1,826,517. However, after
adjustment for the 1-cent
sales tax levied by Walton
County in FY1995 in ex-
change for waiving a fee for
use of the county's landfill
and adjustments for all oth-


er inter-fund transfers, gov-
ernmental activities actual-
ly contributed $534,234 and
business activities $509,676
to the net decrease in total
assets, hence the decrease of
$1,044,000.
City Manager Sara Bow-
ers, the former finance di-
rector for the city, who was
responsible for preparing
the FY2011 end-of-year fi-
nancial statements, said

Officials approve employment


agreement for attorney


By DOTTY NIST
County commissioners
have approved an employ-
ment agreement for their
new county attorney. The
approval was preceded by
the airing of concerns by two
commissioners.
The approval took place
at a special Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting on
Feb. 22 at the Walton Coun-
ty Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs.
County Administrator
Greg Kisela presented the
agreement, which, he noted,
provided for Toni Craig to
start at a salary of $106,000
per year and for that salary
to increase to $114,000 per
year "upon satisfactory re-
view of her job performance
by the Board members or no
later than Aug. 31, which-
ever occurs first." The agree-
ment also provides for the
BCC to consider any salary
increase deemed appropri-
ate once a year at the time
of an annual performance
evaluation.
Referring to the em-
ployment agreement as a
"contract," District 4 Com-
missioner Sara Comander
expressed concern, saying
that the BCC had never
had one with a county at-


torney before. She said she
understood that a precedent
had been set with the BCC
approving a written agree-
ment with Kisela as county
administrator. He had been
hired in spring 2011.
Comander was worried
that the terms of the agree-
ment with the attorney could
potentially leave the county
"on the hook" for money. She
asked who had drawn it up.
"Why weren't we consulted
beforehand?" she asked.
Discussion indicated chat
the agreement had been
provided to the commis-
sioners for their review on
the Friday preceding the
Wednesday, Feb. 22 special
meeting.
Comander expressed dis-
agreement with the raises
mentioned in the agree-
ment, when other county
employees had not received
anything but minor salary
increases in several years.
She also thought that the
14.57-percent retirement
contribution was too high in
comparison with what other
county employees were get-
ting.
"I appreciate her and
I certainly think she will
benefit us," Comander indi-
cated, explaining that as a
commissioner she must look


out for taxpayers.
Kisela responded that he
had drafted the employment
agreement based on the one
in place between himself and
the county---and had sent it
to the county's labor counsel
in Jacksonville for review.
He added that in August,
at the suggestion of District
2 Commissioner Kenneth
Pridgen, staff had been di-
rected to draw up employ-
ment agreements modeled
after his for the county at-
torney and the Tourist De-
velopment Council (TDC)
executive director.
These are the three coun-
ty employees who work di-
rectly for the BCC at the
commissioners' pleasure,
are hired by a vote of the
BCC and may be terminat-
ed with or without cause at
any time with a vote by the
commission.
At the Aug. 23 BCC meet-
ing, Pridgen had said he be-
lieved it to be "more fair" for
all three of these employ-
ees to have an employment
agreement with the county
providing for a severance
package in the event of their
termination. The agreement
provided for the attorney to
receive 20 weeks' salary in
the event of her termination
"without cause."


Comander countered that
,she had thought that since
TDC Executive Director
Dawn Moliterno had indi-
cated that she did not want
a contract, that she had be-
lieved that the matter was
"null and void."
Former county attorney
Lynn Hoshihara had ten-
dered her resignation in No-
vember and has continued
to serve on an interim basis
pending the county getting
a new attorney on board.
County Commission
Chairman Scott Brannon
also aired concerns about
the employment agree-
ment, saying that it did not
make sense for the BCC to
be "agonizing over a $4 toll"
for a new bridge on U.S. 331
while 14.57 percent was be-
'ing paid into ad retirement
account. He continued that
he did not remember voting
for this new way of doing
business.
Comander again empha-
sized that the disagreement
was not about Craig. "I look
forward to working with
her.. I value her," she stat-
ed.
Comander said she had a
problem offering some peo-
ple more than others. Never

Paxton Council continues

to seek traffic signal at

U.S. 331/County Highway

147 intersection


THIS RECENT FDOT STUDY shows that six of the
last 10 auto accidents, some of which involved fatalities,
occurred at the intersection of U.S. 331 North and County
Highway 147 West. The Paxton Town Council is pursuing
the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection. (Photo
courtesy of the city of Paxton)


By REID TUCKER
The Paxton Town Coun-
cil, armed with new reports
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation,
plans to continue pursuing
the installation of a caution
light in the city limits.
The FDOT crash reports
in question show that, since
2004, six of the last 10 ac-
cidents to have taken place
in Paxton occurred at the
intersection of U.S. 331 and
County Highway 147 West,
including the most recent
one last December. This ac-
cident and several others
are thought to have involved
fatalities.
The Council members'
consensus at the January
meeting was to have City
Attorney Lori Bytell draft a
resolution for the city to ac-
quire a traffic signal device


at the intersection. Bytell
told the Council at its most
recent meeting on Tuesday,
Feb. 21, that she had fin-
ished preparing the resolu-
tion and had also been in
contact with representatives
of the Florida League of Cit-
ies and DeFuniak Springs
City Attorney Clayton Ad-
kinson regarding the pro-
cedures necessary to obtain
a new caution light. Bytell
suggested that the Council
begin formulating a more
definite plan of action once
she presents the League of
Cities with the new FDOT
study and also said it would
be more advantageous to
adopt the resolution at that
time.
Bytell planned to keep in
close contact with Adkinson

Replica of History


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 1,2012


Story and photos by
ALICIA LEONARD

Roy Walker has a way of
making big things smaller.
The Wiscasset House locat-
ed on U.S. 331 South in De-
Funiak Springs now has a
mini-me replica constructed
by Walker.
Walker and his ability
to- make small scale repro-
ductions of local histori-
cal homes and buildings
first came to light last year
with the reproduction of
the Palmer House located
on College Ave. Originally
a carpenter and homebuild-
er, he got into the hobby of
making doll houses for his
daughter and granddaugh-
ter.
Often, while working
on one doll house, Walker
will already be thinking of
his next project. His new-
est creation came from the
hope of drawing attention to
the home, that now sits in a
commercial zone and is not
a part of the historical regis-
ter.
Walker told The Herald
Breeze, "Current records
indicate that life began in
1955 for this old charmer,
but locals, who were raised
and live in the home have
come up with deeds back to
the 1800s."
Earnest "Sonny" Holling-
sworth is one of those locals.
Records show the Smith
dairy lands were deeded


from a Francis Eaton to
Richard Brown in July 1890.
Also, part of the original 30
acres were deeded from A.H.
Norcross to Richard Brown
in July 1890. Sometime be-
tween 1890 and 1903 the
Browns had the house built
by a carpenter from Wiscas-
set, Maine, hence the name.
Widow Henrietta Brown
deeded to Henry Gillette in
September 1903. The prop-
erty was then deeded to
L.I. Smith in March 1904.
He sold the property to
P.W. Smith in 1917. Hol-
lingsworth is the grandson
of P.W. Smith and lived in
the property until he was
19, according to informa-
tion supplied by Hollings-
worth, who thanked Walton
County Property Appraiser
Patrick Pilcher for much of
the information compiled on
the history of the home for
this article. The Smith fam-
ily sold the home to Ira and
Brandy Lee Brown in 1947-
1948. Currently, it is owned
by their heirs.
Hollingsworth's grandfa-
ther and the dairy farm sup-
plied milk for the DeFuniak
Springs area and Hollings-
worth delivered much of it
as a young man. "I think it's
wonderful. He did a wonder-
ful job," Hollingsworth de-
clared, admiring the replica
of his childhood home.
Local historian and busi-
ness owner Dennis Ray ad-
mired the craftsmanship


as well and said he hoped
something could be done to
help save the original struc-
ture if possible, but moving
the home would be a diffi-
cult undertaking.
Walker wanted the rep-
lica to go to a worthy cause
but could not decide what to
do with it until he walked
through the doors of the lo-
cal Boys & Girls Club and
spoke with Unit Director
Bobbie Smith. He then de-
cided to donate the replica
to the club for their sum-
mer programs and trips.
Smith said that the club
was thrilled with the dona-
tion and were still deciding
how to use the doll house to
raise funds, "we may include
it in one of our fundraisers
or a silent auction. It is an
incredible donation and we
are very appreciative and
happy he picked us."
Walker has already
moved on to his next project,
but had lots of love for this
one still,."I hope this replica
doll house will remain as a
record of the qld girl's beau-
ty and grace for some years
to come, as a continued
long life for Wiscasset. If in
the scheme of things, some
people look at this dollhouse
and smile, my efforts will be
well served."
For those curious about
having a replica possibly
built by Walker or more in-
formation, he can be reached
at mail4roy@gmail.com.


ERNEST L "SONNY" HOLLINGSWORTH, Roy Walker, Bobbie Smith and Dennis Ray
pose with the newest addition to Walker's resume. The Wiscasset House replica will be do-
nated to the Boys & Girls Club to help with summer programs and trip fees.


Energy saving projects at Freeport

Sports Complex underway


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport City
Council meeting of Feb. 23
City Clerk Robin Haynes re-
ported that representatives
of the..Windswept developr-':
ment 'havie requested' city
approval to install an office,
trailer on leased property at
the northeast corner of the
intersection of SR-20 and
U.S. 331 South. The trailer
would serve as a sales office
for the development. City
Attorney Clayton Adkin-
son reminded the Council
that it could approve the
request for a period of one
year. Councilman Earl King
voiced concern about poten-
tial traffic problems at the
intersection.
Fire Chief Ben Greenslait
advised the Council that a
copy of a report detailing
fire department activity
is to be sent to the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC). The
report will provide informa-
tion on the number of calls
answered and pie charts to
help with presentation of
the data.
Preble-Rish Engineer
Charlie Cotton brought
the Council up to date on
the North Bay water main
project. Work in the sub-
divisions along the route
is mostly complete and the
longest section of pipe to be
installed using directional
drilling techniques is ex-
pected to be completed the
week of Feb. 27. Progress is
still slightly ahead of sched-
ule.
According to Cotton, the
solar array to provide elec-
trical power to selected us-
ers at the Freeport Regional
Sports Complex is complete,
but that connections to some
of the users remain to be in-
stalled.
Cotton also reported that
a single bid of $51,000 to
split the electricity meter-
ing system at the Sports
Complex has been received.
The bidder is Wisco Electric.
Mayor Mickey Marse recom-
mended that the Council ac-
cept the single bid so that
the energy saving project
can be put into service. The
Council approved the rec-
ommendation.
The Council also learned
from Cotton that the Wagon
Wheel well project permit
package has been received
and work will be initiated as
soon as the permit is final-


ized.
After discussion, the
Council agreed to interview
the nine applicants for the
fire department job opening
at.7 p.m. on Feb. 27.
'-Havnes asked the Coun-
ciL.to approve ending the
policy under which the city
has arranged removal of
septic tanks when custom-
ers tie in to the city sewage
system. Haynes also asked
for approval to notify po-
tential sewage customers in
the Bay and Bay Loop Road
areas that waivers of the
impact fee will no longer be
offered after Sept. 30. The


Council approved both re-
quests.

Haynes asked the Coun-
cil to approve amendments
to the budget to recognize
funds received from the
county for fire department
operations. The county
funds will enable changes
to include $10,000 in the
Capital Outlay Account for
an asphalt roller, $20,000 in
the Casey Park and Pool Ac-
count for a disabled persons
lift, and $107,000 in the
Sports Complex Account.
The Council approved the
request.


WALKER'S craftsmanship is evident as well as the care he puts into each of the historical
replicas he reproduces.

Why Can't They


Learn From Us?
By BRUCE COLLIER
People continue to speak (and write) their opinions on
the upcoming referendum to raise funds for the proposed
U.S. 331 bridge. There are more published this week, and
we will keep running them. I think it's interesting that the
"bridge" letters both pro and con are shorter than the
ones we got months ago on other public issues, such as the
hiring of the DeFuniak Springs City Manager, the sign or-
dinance changes, and the crematorium debate. "No tax, no
toll, no bridge" is pretty short and sweet.
As hot as the bridge tax question is and will remain
I am struck a.nd impressed by the tone of the letters we
have received. Even with the occasional notes of sarcasm
and flights of rhetoric, the debate remains sober, focused
and civilized. J.B. Hillard, a regular correspondent to this
newspaper, observed to me last week during an exchange
of email that found us in disagreement that it's great to
live in a country "where we have a civil debate and move
on."
Yes, it is. Unfortunately, civility seems to be confined
more to the county than the country. Now that the Super
Bowl and the Oscars are done for this year, the less impor-
tant news is back, and that means the presidentialelection.
It's only March, and things are already uglier, and more
dumbed-down, than ever.
Inevitably, we turn every presidential election into the
Quest for the Holy Grail instead of what it is a job search
for the nation's most important executive position. Yet we
have been led to believe.- by career politicians, curiously
worldly religious leaders, fanatic social activists, and cyni-
cal campaign image-makers, that this is always life and
death and that disaster awaits the wrong choice.
In a democratic election process, there is no wrong choice,
there's only the people's choice, and we all have to live with
it. Again, to quote J.B., "After April 24, life will go on for all
of us."
Meantime, there's no better way to prepare for the sales
tax referendum than to read and consider what all sides are
saying, then make an informed decision. Too bad the presi-
dential election can't be handled the same way. There are
no two words more feared by national campaign strategists
than "informed voters." Sadly, they aren't worried.


Editor,
After reading your editorial, "Love won't build this bridge"
(an unabashed endorsement for an increased sales tax) in
last week's paper, I must say, I think you missed your true
calling. You sir, should be in politics. In your summation of
last week's editorial you found yourself in total support of
a statement made by a citizen who said "You'd think that
they'd be thrilled at the offer being made." In other words,
you're astonished by the fact that many of us just don't want
to submit to yet another tax in order to finance the bridge.
You seem to lose sight of the fact that Walton County citi-
zens have paid enough taxes to the state and federal gov-
ernment to pay for this bridge. But, instead of a 331 bridge
we get nothing but the opportunity to pay guess what
- yet another tax. Let's just ignore the fact that Bay County
has a new bridge and three, four-lane roads running north
and south and they didn't have to raise county taxes to do
it. Your premise seems to be that we should just kneel down
and bear the title of "highest taxes in the state" as a badge
of honor. Now who wouldn't be "thrilled" about that?
You also contend that no one can respond to the issue
of 59 officers having to direct northbound traffic at feeder
roads to accommodate "contraflow" during an evacuation.
Allow me take a stab at it. Juxtapose the cost of 59 deputies
for a 24 hour period vis a vis $75,000,000 plus interest and
let me know which one seems more cost effective. I'm pretty
sure we've got about 200 full time deputies plus auxiliary.
I think they can handle it, and for that matter, why does it
take a law enforcement officer to hold a stop sign and wave
his arm? Is it really that complicated?
I'm guessing you are also of the opinion that business
will flock to this county once the bridge is finished. Please
educate me as to what economic advantage this bridge will
give us over Okaloosa County with a 6 percent sales tax
or Bay County with a 6.5 percent sales tax. As a business
man wouldn't you take that into consideration prior to con-
sidering where to locate? As a building contractor, I may
purchase over $1,000,000 of building materials annually in
Walton County. The 1 percent county sales tax on a million
dollars is $10,000. So, the cost to my aggregate customers
is $10,000 more than they would have had to pay, if I had
purchased my building materials in Okaloosa County. Ex-
trapolate these numbers to take in every developer, con-
tractor or business in Walton County and you arrive at
tens of millions being sucked out of the market and into
the coffers of government. Pardon me if I'm not "thrilled"
about the aspect of increasing the cost of doing business in
Walton County. Bridge or no bridge, additional taxes hurt
business, because it hurts the customer.

Editor's reply: What I wrote was that I had yet to hear a
response to the argument that extra deputies would be need-
ed, not that no one could respond. So far, I have heard two
responses. As for your guess that I believe business would
flock to Walton County if we had the new bridge, I am not so
naive as to think that any one thing will bring business here,
or drive it away. Ido appreciate your position as a business-
man, though. Thanks for writing.


Editor:
End of the World
If we all awake on the morning of Dec. 22 2012 to the
sound of the birds still singing in the cold morning air
rather than sound of Gabriel's trumpet, this year of the
Apocalypse will have still left us a different people. Sitting
here listening to the spring rain fall outside my window,
I'm not quite sure what is going on with the world and the
people in it.. There are those I know, rational, intelligent
people who are planning for the worst. Our national lead-
ers have failed us. They have not been responsive to our
needs, preferring to make enemies rather than friends,
spending money on weapon systems rather than the care of
the citizenry. Does anyone in DFS really think there are
such things as terrorists or that Iran is in any way capable
of mounting an attack on the U.S.? Why are we sending
our young men and women half way around the world to
die and kill in the Middle East? And to be to the point, why
are we teaching our children to kill? There is nothing noble
in war and there never will be, ask anyone who has been
there. I saw the good young men of my generation, friends
and neighbors, sent to Vietnam to fight a useless war. They
came back broken with blood they could not wash from their
hands.
Other's think the problem lies in the way money is being
spent. If we could just get our financial house in order all
the moral and societal issues would just fall into place and
we would all be having a vanilla malted in the back seat
of the DeSoto. Money is not the solution it is the problem.
Our current economic programs have created a permanent
underclass of citizens who depend on the government to
pay their way. People who proudly tell you they "work for a
living," resent this underclass callingthem lazy and a drain
on the system. This is all a chimera. This is the richest na-
tion in world, we are rich but we are not wealthy. We have
become slaves to money; we work for money, not because
we would like to accomplish something. Our forefathers
and mothers worked to feed themselves, to feed their chil-
dren, to build roads and establish institutions of learning;
this is a far cry from working for a paycheck. Even if you
are using that check for the care and feeding of you family
it's not the same. Money has become our God. I see it in the
church every Sunday. Preachers have become apologists
for our way of life and our love of money. We read from the
Scriptures, and then the preacher apologizes for the words
of the berobed young man from Galilee. "Now Jesus lived in
a much different time and place than we find ourselves to-
day; in today's gospel Jesus told the rich man. to give away
all he owned and follow me. Now Jesus is not telling you
to give up your car your house and leave your family and
preach the good word." He's not! Well you could have fooled
me. There didn't seem to be a lot of wiggle room in what


Editor
In The Herald last week the Editor wrote about the 331/
bridge issue. Unfortunately he is fixated on the $102 mil-
lion baited hook that is dangling out there in hopes of catch-
ing a whopper, the Walton county taxpayers. The big catch
is gigantic, a $75 million public debt.
The Editor, like other proponents have conveniently
ignored alternative traffic control that will work to solve
movement of vehicles over the current bay bridge. The
editorial mentions a Sheriffs Office representative talking
about the need for personnel to block 59 feeder roads if Hwy
331 was turned into two lanes going north. He says that's a
critical waste of personnel. This may be true. But then the
Editor says he has yet to hear a response to that argument.
Well, here is one response that in, my opinion is a viable
common sense approach.
The answer is very simple. As I have written and voiced
many times before I offer the cart before the horse argu-
ment. A four lane Hwy 331 north of the bay will not require
personnel to block 59 feeder roads. The four lane (two go-
ing north) will handle the traffic very well. After all, that's
what we all want, a four-lane highway moving people. In
just a few hours the current bridge can easily be converted
to two lanes going north and one lane going south for emer-
gency vehicles. This would handle all the concerns of beach
evacuation that have been expressed.


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 1,2012


-,, S . .


Jesus said. Mainstream Christians have become Capital-
ists first, Materialists second, Warmongers third, SEC fans
fourth and Christians two days a year on Christmas and
Easter.
Our educational system has become something out of
Metropolis. Children are not taught to be thinking percep-
tive adult human beings, but to be a cog. Now you can be
a very nice cog, a lawyer or doctor and drive you Lexus,
and live in a Mac Mansion, but you're still nothing but a
Cog. Science and math are drilled into the young as if they
will make you a better person, math does not make you a
better person it makes you a better Cog. How about we
teach our children to be better people? Read Tolstoy, learn
about the history of the world, listen to Bach, learn to make
a chair, meditate. And this idea that everybody should go
to college. College is good for one thing, making you a bet-
ter Cog. You are not serving mankind by going to college
you are serving the system, the system that denigrates mi-
norities and the poor and the system that makes war and
the system that preaches that we in America are good and
strange dark skinned people that dress funny are evil.
The only people who see the Apocalypse as a time of
peace and becoming are the lunatic fringe, that being back-
woods evangelical Christians who take the second coming
as real and the trans meditative gurus who preach of a new
awakening and a shift in the basic nature of what it means
to be human. People like Eckhart Tolle and David Wilcock
see us becoming much more aware of our place in the uni-
verse. In fact we don't have a place in the Universe; we are
the Universe. In a way of thinking of ourselves that dates
back to the very beginning of human history, we are all one
with everything and every atom of existence. Everything
is just a collection of vibrating atoms make up of energy
that is one gigantic consciousness. Tolle sees this as some-
thing to become aware of while Wilcock thinks the science
of the Universe is made in such a way as to bring about
our transitional evolution. No matter how it happens, all
signs point to us becoming something quite different than
what we are now. I can't wait. If a higher awareness can
let us see that we are all one on this tiny speck of dust and
that the things we do and the way we think effect our mate-
rial world maybe we will realize that what we were told all
along was right. From Jesus to Buddha to every spiritual
entity throughout history, we have been told to love one
another, and if you remember correctly not just the people
who are easy to love but those who are our enemies. If you
look at the world as a total consciousness you realize that
our very thoughts can bring about change in the material
world. Negative thoughts produce negative results. Posi-
tive thoughts produce positive results. We have a plane-
tary conscience and all we need is love.

LETE O HEEITOR


All the hoopla about economic growth, build it and they
will come, life or death if the bridge is not built, and we will
stay in the dark ages........ all of these comments have abso-
lutely no basis in fact. It's all based on opinion and nothing
more. There is absolutely no documented evidence any of
this is true 'or even remotely so. Talk about misinforma-
tion....it's rampant out there.
Once again, I say the cart is before the horse. Build a four
lane Hwy 331 north of the bridge and configure the current
bridge into three lanes on that very rare occasion when it
might be needed. Save the taxpayers $75 million. This com-
mon sense approach will solve the traffic flow problem we
see every day.
U.S. 331 is going to be a four lane highway with or with-
out the .bridge. If it is ever proven an additional bridge is
absolutely necessary or Walton County will cease to exist
without it, then the taxpayers can take another look. In the
meantime we should be able to enjoy a four lane highway
without a $75 million public debt.
For now the taxpayers should reject the bait on April 24,
and send a message that we want common sense to prevail
on hwy 331, and a public debt of $75 million is not accept-
able.

I ETERTOTH EITOR


Editor:
The U.S. 331 bridge offer of $102 million by a Florida
state government that is two billion in the red is irrespoi,-
sible. The UWF idea of building millions of dollars worth of
dorms and other non-educational facilities is irresponsible.
The Florida state government's spending of millions on any
new thing in this poor economy is an irresponsible use of
tax payer's money. Do those in government know that we
are in bad economy? Do the BCC and Tallahassee not see
the empty buildings, where people and businesses used to
be? Do they not see the huge vacancy rate that that causes,
negating the need for new dorms?
Add to the big spending the BCC's decision for a binding
referendum in April to raise the sales tax by one-half cent.
As it is, when I have a big purchase, I opt for Okaloosa
rather than Walton, to save the 1-percent sales tax.
The sales tax is not the whole story. That new tax only


opens the door to sell bonds that will cost us another $35
million in interest on top of the $75 million it would raise
over umpteen years. Do you see the sales tax going away
after the bridge is paid for? I have never seen a sales tax go
down.
This topic is educational. The 1-percent Walton has on
top of Okaloosa's 6 percent, I hear, pays for trash pick-
up. Wow, $11.5 million (year 2011) is a lot for trash pickup,
when we only get it once a week, and we are giving them
stuff. Trash to us is another man's treasure.
First off, we don't need another bridge. We already have
one that a piddly 40,000 people in Walton County mostly
do not use. A two-lane bridge can easily handle the traffic
of a four lane highway. How? The bridge will not have cars
slowing down to turn off the top of the bridge, falling 70 feet
into the water. Likewise, cars will not be coming up out of
the water and on to the bridge to slowly merge into traffic.


There are no signal lights or stop signs on the bridge to stop
traffic. There are not hundreds of potentially hazardous
driveways to people's businesses and houses on the side of
the bridge. In other words, the bridge is the longest length
of very safe, zero limited access highway that we have in
Walton County.
Second off, we need to start saving for the day when the
existing bridge will need to be replaced. Should we start
saving by using half of that trash 1 percent? But wait, it is
a state highway. Did Walton pay for the bridge when it was
constructed in 1991? I doubt it. Tallahassee is giving us
a con job to pay for their big spending mistakes. Our 331
bridge is the safest (85 percent sufficiency rating) bridge
across the bay.
Vote No on the half-cent sales tax. And while we are at
it, let's turn this con game around, and have a referendum
to lower the Walton 7 percent sales tax down to 6.5 percent,
down to what trash pickup really costs.

City proclamation makes Feb. 24 a day in

honor of local WWII veteran's 96th birthday


By REID TUCKER

DeFuniak Springs May-
or Pro-Tem Henry Ennis
signed a proclamation des-
ignating Feb. 24 as a day in
honor of the 96th birthday


of Lewis Elbie Hardy.
Hardy, born in 1916 in
Holmes County, joined the
U.S. Army in 1942 at the
age of 26 and fought in five
battles during World War
II before returning home


three years later, having at-
tained the rank of technical
corporal. After his stint in
the Army, Hardy married
Myrtle Kelly on Oct. 8, 1954
and, after more than 48
years working in Holmes,


Okaloosa and Walton coun- .
ties, retired to DeFuniak
Springs, where he lives to-
day. These days, he enjoys br/a
fishing, gardening, visiting
with friends and family, and
helping others in the com-
munity.

Hardy's sister, Nettie
Belle Powell, was on-hand
and the signing of the procla-
mation, the second honoring
DeFuniak Springs residents
aged 90 and up. Mayor Har-
old Carpenter previously de-
clared Jan.11 as a day rec-
ognizing the 94th birthday
of Franicis Lathinghouse LEWIS ELBIE HARDY and his sister, Nettie Belle (Har-
Campell Jones, mother-in- dy) Powell [not pictured] were on-hand Friday, Feb. 24,
law of City Councilman Mac for the signing of a proclamation recognizing Hardy's 96th
Work. Other such proclama- birthday. Mayor Pro-Tempore Henry Ennis signed the proc-
tions are expected from the lamation at a small ceremony at City Hall. (Photo courtesy

DFSPD announces 2012


Special Olympics campaign


The 2012 Special Olym-
pics campaign is under way
and the Florida Law En-
forcement Torch Run is the
largest annual public rela-
tions and fund raising event
among Special Olympics
Florida and law enforce-
ment agencies. Statewide,
the participating chiefs, offi-
cers, sheriffs, deputies, spe-
cial agents, correctional of-
ficers, probation and parole
officers, military police and
cadets from virtually every
branch of federal, state,
county and municipal law
enforcement, represent a to-
tal of more than 300 differ-
ent agencies.
The signature event of'
the law enforcement com-
munity's year-round sup-
port of Special Olympics is'
the annual Law Enforce-
ment Torch Run. For 29
years, the "Flame of Hope"
has traversed Florida in an
intrastate relay of simul-
taneous routes throughout
the state, covering count-
less thousands of miles. The
torch is carried by federal,
state, and local law enforce-
ment officers from the Ala-
bama/Florida state line in
Century to the Opening
Ceremonies of Florida's an-
nual State Summer Games
at Disney's Wide World of
Sports. The First Leg of the
Torch Run begins in Escam-
bia County (Century) on
March 26, 2012 and ends
with the Final Leg in Os-
ceola County (Kissimmee),
with stops along the way
in virtually every county in
Florida.
The Walton County leg of
the Torch Run is scheduled
for March 29 and will be rep-
resented by law enforcement
officers from several differ-
ent agencies, to include: The
Walton County Sheriffs
Department, The Defuniak
Springs Police Department,
The Florida Department of
Corrections (Institutions),


The Florida Department of
Corrections (Probation and
Parole), The Florida Parole
Commission, The Florida
Highway Patrol, The United
States Probation Office, The
State Attorney's Office, and
the Walton County Depart-
ment of Corrections.
The Walton County Law
Enforcement community
is also excited to announce
that on March 20, Ap-
plebee's of Sandestin will
host a "Tip a Cop" fundrais-
ing event. Law Enforcement
officers will volunteer to act
as' guest "servers" from 5 -
9 p.m., greeting customers


and requesting donations
for Special Olympics.
The mission of'Special
Olympics Florida is to pro-
vide year-round sports
training and athletic compe-
tition in a variety of Olym-
pic-style sports for children
and adults with intellectual
disabilities. It gives them
the continuing opportunity
to develop physical fitness,
demonstrate courage, expe-
rience joy and participate in
a sharing of gifts, skills and
friendships with their fami-
lies and other Special Olym-
pic athletes and the commu-
nity.

REPORT

the audit report was clean
and showed that everything
with the city's finances was
in good order. Bowers' state-
ment read that the total de-
creases to net assets in both
FY2011 and FY2010 are an
"unfortunate consequence of
the current sluggish econo-
my" at a national and local
level. Nevertheless, Bowers
said the city of DeFuniak
Springs has no immediate
need to worry about its fi-
nances, citing the positive
net growth in governmental
and business activities.
"We're not in any
worse shape than any other
government right now," she
: said. "We're not in any fi-
nancial distress. We're not
anywhere near that."
The other main part of
the meeting involved a pre-
sentation regarding cogon
grass, widely considered the
worst of the worst when it
comes to invasive plant spe-
cies worldwide. It is thought

that the weed first arrived in
North America from south-
east Asia in the early 1900s,
when it was used as pack-
ing material for shipping.
Cogon grass quickly spread
throughout the Gulf Coast
states and as far north as
the Carolinas, crowding out
native plant species along
the way.
Master. Gardener Craig
Overstreet, a former U.S.
government scientist and
public school educator,
along with Master Garden-
er Chuck Lawson presented
a slideshow with the aim of
informing the public about
the dangers cogon grass
poses to the local ecosystem
and how the city and indi-
viduals alike might combat
the weed.
Cogon grass fires burn
at higher temperatures than
do those involving other
plants hot enough, in fact,
to kill trees and set wooden
structures on fire. Also, due


to an extensive underground
root system, the plant itself
is immune to burning. Un-
like the number-two worst
invasive plant species,
kudzu, cogon grass is un-
suitable as forage material
because of the sharp, minia-
ture steak knife-like ridges
on its leaves.
Furthermore, cogon grass
is pervasive throughout the
Southeast both because it
grows well in dry or wet con-
dition, even in sandy earth,
and it can be easily spread
via seeds or by individual,
chopped-up pieces of the
plant itself.
These last two details
are especially critical, as city
and county mowing crews
and property owners alike
frequently do not sufficient-
ly clean their equipment
when moving from location
to location, helping cogon
grass proliferate through-
out Walton County. Over-
street and Lawson 'said the


only effective way to remove
cogon grass is to deep-disc
the entire area containing
the weed and then to make
several applications of the
herbicide glyphosate, which
is sold under several brand-
names, including Roundup.
After concluding their
presentation, Overstreet
and Lawson urged the City
Council to educate the city's
workers on proper clean-
ing methods and on how to
identify cogon grass, both
of which are critical to en-
suring that it does not con-
tinue to spread. They also
advised that the city use
GPS systems to identify
and prioritize cogon grass
sites throughout the De-
Funiak Springs area and to
train workers in identifica-
tion measures. The Walton
County Extension Office
will offer workshops and
training opportunities in
the near future.
"The more everyone
knows about the dangers
posed by [cogon grass] the
better," Overstreet said in
an interview conducted last
week. '"We absolutely need
to recognize this plant as
a threat to the community.
It's going to take an effort
from everybody to eradi-
cate it. City governments,
the county government, and
individual people are going
to have to get involved if we
want to make sure it's elimi-
nated."
While those two items
took up the majority of the
meeting, the Council also
had to vote on several items,
a few of which involved the
municipal airport.
The Council voted unani-
mously to follow the recom-
mendation of the Airport
Advisory Committee to pur-
chase an aircraft tow vehicle
from Monarch Aviation, one
of the airport's tenants. The
councilmen also cast straight


votes in favor of signing a
10-year lease agreement of
one of the maintenance han-
gars with Monarch. Finally,
the Council voted 4-0 to rent


two small houses on airport
property on a month-to-
month basis, with the reve-
nue from the lease to go back
into airport operations.


THE INVASIVE PLANT SPECIES COGON GRASS
is found throughout DeFuniak Springs, even in the flow-
er beds near the old train depot which houses the Walton
County Heritage Museum. In some instances, cogon grass,
also known as Japanese bloodgrass, is planted voluntarily
for its aesthetic appeal, while in other cases it is acciden-
tally spread when plant parts and seeds attach themselves
to mowing equipment. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

and DeFuniak Springs May-
or Harold Carpenter, -who
may be able to provide Pax-
ton with additional informa-
tion on the issue of getting a
new traffic light.
The Council as recently
as within the last three
years tried to have a traf-
fic light installed at the in-
tersection of U.S. 331 and
County Highway 147, but
the FDOT study conducted
at that time found that the
intersection did not qualify
for a traffic control device
with a red light. For this
reason, the Council made its
decision to move ahead with
plans for a flashing yellow
caution light instead.
Other items on the agen-
da at the February Town
Council meeting included
discussion to renew the
city's contract with the Pax-
ton Dixie Youth League,
which is slated to begin its
summer baseball season in
a few months' time. The re-
newal agreement contained
no changes and the motion
to approve re-upping the
contract passed unanimous-
ly when put to the vote. Di-
xie Youth League represen-
tatives in attendance at the
meeting also requested per-
mission to use city property
for a fundraiser at a future
date, something the Council
agreed to consider once all
the information regarding
the fundraiser has been sub-
mitted for review.
The Council also unani-
mously voted to endorse a
proclamation establishing
a Paxton School-sponsored
anti-tobacco campaign.
"Kick Butts Day," which
will be held at the school on
March 21, is aimed at in-
forming students of all ages
aware of the dangers posed
by cigarettes.
The city awarded a con-
tract to Evan's Carpet City
of DeFuniak Springs for the
installation of semi-skid tile
at the Paxton Post Office.
Two companies submitted
quotes for the Council's ap-
proval, but Evan's Carpet
City won out with a bid of
$1,084.78 for the 18-by-18
area.
Finally, Walton County
Economic Development Al-


lance Managing Director
Scarlett Phaneuf updated
the Council on the status of
bringing a Dollar General
store to Paxton. She has
been extensively working
on the project in the past
months and, though repre-
sentatives from Dollar Gen-
eral initially said Paxton was
too small a market for a new
store, Phaneuf said she in-
formed Dollar General that
the city had no grocery store
and would strongly support
a new retail location. She
also told Dollar General rep-
resentatives that the city is
willing to offer property and
infrastructure incentives if
the company should open a
store in Paxton.
Phaneuf told the Council
she would continue to pursue
communications with Dollar
General and will update the
Council with any new infor-
mation she receives.

[I LETTER TO THE EDITOR |

Editor:
During the 1800s, Russia had an upper class and peas-
ants. For the upper class, life was at its best for those times.
It never entered their minds that the good life as they knew
it would end. They exercised no concern for the masses that
did all the work. The peasant workers lived a miserable
life in comparison with no hope or means to improve their
status. Resentment grew and grew by the workers, which
culminated into a massive revolt against the upper class. In
October of 1917, the military and the peasants took control
of the largest country in the world. The upper class tum-
bled to depths they never imagined. They received bitter
treatment by the new rulers. Their nice homes became bar-
racks for the bottom elements of society and there was no
recourse. They found themselves doing manual labor along
side those that had never measured up to be recognized as
people.
The United States during the 1900s was made up of
the poor, a large middle class, and the wealthy. The poor
could work their way into the middle class through hard
work or education. There were many college prep schools
and colleges that catered to those without the funds to pay
for their education. D L Moody sponsored some of those
schools. Mount Hermorn School in western Massachusetts
was located five miles from my home. I was the seventh
child in a family of nine children. My dad was able to pay
the $150 a year for a day student. There has always been
a myriad of ways to become successful in this country. The
quality of life is excellent for the middle class.
For the last three years, we have seen our national dept
skyrocket. Those elected officials at the top ignore the con-
trols of our constitution, which they took an oath to defend.
People at the lower end of society have been encouraged to
demonstrate against business owners, bankers, and even
the successful middle class. There appears to be a trend
to take money from those that earn it and redistribute the
funds to those that refuse to work.
I served two one-year tours of duty in the Vietnam War.
I felt a sense of apprehension during the weeks leading up
to those tours. For months, I have had the same feeling
about what is taking place in my country. In my opinion,
the years ahead will be full of change that will diminish life
as we have known it
God help us.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 1,2012


COMMISSION F LORI


ENFORCEMENT 1RED


Last Saturday, my hus-
band and I stopped at Mc-
Callister's Deli in Destin
to grab a quick bite. While
downing perfectly brewed
sweet tea and a bread bowl
of cheddar potato soup, I
couldn't help but notice the
cartoon playing on a laptop
at the table next to us.
With his mother and two
grandmothers, a .little boy
(about 7-8), was hopelessly
tuned in, headphones, lap-
top, power cord and all,
while tuned out to the con-
versation and relatives
around him.
I've learned in the land
of parenthood to never say
"never" unless one considers
the taste of crow a delicacy.
Oh sure, I said I would nev-
er yell (I'm at the top of my
vocal range so often I need
a voice coach) or spank (ha!)
or snap, "Because I said
so." Yet in this situation I
couldn't help myself; I was
like Ouiser in Steel Mag-
nolias: "Just this morning' I
saw Drum Eatenton in the
store and I smiled at the son
of a----, 'fore I could help my-
self."
Before I could wrangle my
tongue, I yanked my hus-
band's arm and said, "You
see that? That will never
happen, agreed?"
Ken turned to peer at the
little boy absorbed in a phan-
tasm of neon-colored com-
puter generated graphics,
nibbling a PB&J quietly as
his mother and grandmoth-
ers laughed and swapped
stories.
Now, I am aware that
sometimes a parent will do
anything to quiet a child
(let him sleep with a bot-
tle of milk and cavities be
damned!), and even as I
made a mental vow never to
allow my son to forego all so-
cial interaction for the sake
of a child-interruption-free
meal, I battled him, wail-
ing and flailing, off of the
floor and the banister, and
out of the basket of lids and
straws.
In between yelling "No!"
and "Stop that!" I asked my
husband to recall all of the
dinners with his family and
grandparents, and imag-
ine being zoned out; think


PROUD MOMENT FOR THE WCSO, as The Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc. (CFA) con-
ferred professional law enforcement agency accreditation.



Walton County Sheriffs Office


receives CFA accreditation


The Commission for Flor-
ida Law Enforcement Ac-
creditation, Inc. (CFA) has
conferred professional law
2 enforcement agency accredi-
tation on the Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO).
The accreditation process
requires the implementa-
tion of policies and proce-
dures within state law en-
forcement guidelines and
requires compliance with
over 250 standards. An ac-
credited agency must con-
form to best practices in the
business and a high level
adherence to legal, opera-
tional, and administrative
processes designed to pro-
tect the taxpayers from un-
necessary liabilities, better
train and equip staff, and
provide a higher level of ser-
vice to the community. Ev-


ery three years the sheriffs
office must be reevaluated
by the CFA to ensure com-
pliance with all required
standards.
The WCSO now joins the
ranks of more than 140 Flor-
ida accredited law enforce-
ment agencies to include
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, Orange
County Sheriffs Office, Du-
val County Sheriffs Office,
Bay County Sheriffs Office
and the Okaloosa County
Sheriffs Office.
In 2010, Sheriff Adkinson
was appointed as a commis-
sioner of the CFA Commis-
sion. He is very proud that
his -agency passed with a
perfect score on the evalua-
tion by the Commission, re-
ceiving 100 percent compli-
ance with all standards.


"CFA accreditation raises
the bar for excellence," said
Adkinson. "Accreditation
is a rigorous process that
symbolizes professionalism
and competence in a law en-
forcement agency. This goal
was accomplished because
of the hard work by the men
and women of the Walton
County Sheriffs Office."
"I am so proud to be part
of an agency where quality
service and continual opera-
tional improvement is a top
priority," said Deputy Corey
Rawles. "With the new way
of doing business, we are
more uniform in our proce-
dures and clearly know our
job expectations."
The accreditation assess-
ment team noted "The Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
has done an exceptional job


AGREEMENT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


has a county attorney been
offered "more than to work
for the board," she said.
Walton County Clerk of
Courts Martha Ingle asked
Kisela if 14.57 percent was
not the retirement contribu-
tion rate for all the county's
senior management employ-
ees.
Kisela responded that
this was the case. He ex-
plained that that rate had
been based on the one in
place for the state retire-
ment system and had been
applied for senior manage-
ment and memorialized in
his employment agreement.
Hoshihara pointed out
that the corresponding rate
for the state retirement sys-
tem could go up or down but
that the agreement would
fix the rate for the attorney
at 14.57 percent.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones commented
that the terms of the employ-
ment agreement are in line
with what the county is cur-
rently doing with regard to
the county attorney position
"just put down on paper."
She termed the agreement
"a level up in our doing busi-
ness." Hoshihara also stated
that the agreement does not
add or subtract responsibili-
ties for the position.
Comander continued to
disagree, asking that, if
14.57 percent is the retire-
ment contribution for senior
management, and the at-
torney is considered senior
management, "why do we
;ieed a contract?"
Regarding the yearly
raises, Pridgen pointed out
that BCC approval would be
required.
Brannon then brought up
a portion of the agreement
providing for the attorney to
have "sole discretion to re-


tain and terminate the ser-
vices of any outside counsel
as necessary."
Comander asked if input
from the BCC should not be
required.
The agreement also states
that the attorney would be
charged with "hiring, direct-
ing, managing, and firing
professional staff' to assist
her. Comander expressed
concern that legal depart-
ment employees might be
fired without a look at plac-
ing them in another depart-
ment where assistance was
needed.
"I think we have .al-
ways done that," Cecilia
Jones countered. Jones was
strongly in favor of the at-
torney having discretion
over outside counsel. Once
this had not been the case
when outside counsel was
engaged, she observed. "We
don't need that to ever hap-
pen again," Jones said. This
was an apparent reference
to the Chat Holley purchase
in 2010, which was the
subject of an independent
investigation that was un-
able to determine who had
tasked the special counsel
with providing oversight of
the transaction.
In response to a question
from Comander regarding a
potential budget crunch, Ho-
shihara also explained that
any across-the-board cut
in employee salaries would
also apply to the attorney.
District 3 Commission-
er Larry Jones was of the
opinion that the agreement
should state that the attor-
ney would be included in
any cost-of-living increases
approved for other county
employees.
Jones also suggested re-
moving the word "satisfac-
tory" from the portion of the


agreement regarding the
BCC job performance review
prior to the salary increase
to $114,000 by Aug. 31. He
also recommended changing
the wording to "may increase
to no more than $114,000."
These changes were agreed
to by all commissioners.
Citizens Alan Osborne
and Mary Nielson spoke in
favor of the agreement.
"There's no reason not
to put it in writing," Os-
borne told the commission-
ers. "You're asking her to
be your full-time counsel,"
he continued, saying that in'
his opinion the BCC should
consider starting the attor-
ney at a higher salary.
"Rank has its privileges...
the harder you work the
higher you climb and the
more you benefit;" Osborne
concluded, "that's America."
Nielson also told the com-
missioners that in her opin-
ion a higher salary would be
appropriate considering this
individual's background
and considering amounts
previously paid to law firms
representing the county and
raises paid to employees
with less impressive qualifi-
cations.
Comander responded
that the salary being offered
in connection with the posi-
tion was the one the attor-
ney had requested in her ap-
plication.
Following a motion by
Pridgen for approval of the
employment agreement,
with the revisions outlined
by Larry Jones, the agree-
ment was approved unani-
mously.
Craig later came forward,
stating her acceptance of
the terms of the approved
agreement. She thanked the
citizens for their comments.
"I look forward to working


of complying with all ap-
plicable accreditation stan-
dards. The agency is clearly
living within the spirit and
scope of Florida's accredi-
tation program. Under the
leadership of Sheriff Ad-
kinson, the Walton County
Sheriffs Office has become
a premier law enforcement
agency with forward think-
ing management, opera-
tional philosophies, and pro-
gressive law enforcement
services. Sheriff Adkinson
is a strong believer in con-
tinuous improvement of his
agency for the benefit of the
citizens of Walton County,
Fla."

tion programs, visit www.

with all of you," she said.
In other action at the
special meeting, the BCC
approved an application for
a two-year grant for contin-
ued funding of a coordinator
for Walton County Fire Res-
cue. The grant requires no
matching funds. It was dis-
cussed that the grant would
be eliminated at the end of
the two-year period. At that
time, other funding will
have to be identified to keep
the coordinator in place or
else the position will have to
be eliminated.
The commissioners also
approved an executive ses-
sion to follow the Feb. 28
regular meeting for discus-
sion of strategy regarding
the Suzanne Harris mo-
tion for contempt and show
cause order. This is the mo-
tion related to alleged use
of a personal e-mail account
for official county business.

of all things he would have
missed.
In addition to the social
and conversational skills a
child is forfeiting when ab-
sorbed in an electronic fan-
tasy rather than being pres-
ent in reality, consider the
memories he/she will miss.
Around a table, any table,
with my family is where I
learned where I came from
and who I was: stories from
my Granny Amason about
"stompin' and a-steerin';"
stories from my Granny
Brannon about growing up
in the country. My Grandpa
Amason's fish tales, my dad's
basketball-star tales, my
mom's "baby of the family"
horrors. In my family, there
was no "kids' table." There
was only one little house
where everyone squeezed in
best they could and we kids
couldn't wait to be a part of
the "grown-ups'" conversa-
tions. Now, everywhere I go
from grab-n-go delis to four-
star restaurants, kids are
tuned in to an ipod or Nin-
tendo DS or DVD player at
the dinner table.
It's sad. It makes me sad
that parents are so often
willing to sit children in
front of a digital babysit-
ter that stalls development
(the mountains of research
regarding the effects of
"screens" on developing
brains is unequivocal) rath-
er than suffer the tantrum.
If there is one thing I re-
member from my pregnancy
reading it is that "tantrums
mean a parent is doing his/
her job right," and judging
from the number of public
embarrassments my son
puts me through, I must be
up for an award.
And at that awards cere-
mony dinner, my cell phone
will be turned off. My son,
to whom I will dedicate the
golden statue of a scream-
ing-and-kicking toddler,
will be sitting at the table,
screen-free, dressed in a
little tux stained with the
ice-cream, which he will in-
evitably fling at me while I
am on stage making an ac-
ceptance speech-at which
point I will yell and spank
and snap "Because I said
so!"

Home buyers get help


REALTOR KIM WENNERBERG with Team Wa
together a home-buyer expo last week. Wennerberg
some tips for the prospective buyer during the openii
seminar.

shared infor-
mation on fi-
nance and the
purchase of a
home for the
prospective
buyers.

By ALICIA LEONARD
It's a dream of many to
own their own home and on
the evening of Feb. 22, Real-
tor Kim Wennerberg, along
with Team Walton Real
Estate and many of their
business partners, joined to-
gether to offer a free home-
buying seminar at the Chau-
tauqua Hall of Brotherhood
to the public.
Prospective and hopeful
buyers alongside industry
partners came together to
enjoy some snacks and plen-
ty of information on home-
buying services.
2 Donna Arnold opened the
meeting and Wennerberg
greeted the attendees with
some sage advice for pro-
xlton put spective homeowners: "Have
- shared a plan. Get a-good agent and
ng of the don't assume everything you
hear about the market to be
true. Bad news sells, but the
good news is our market is
good and we have lots of op-
tions for those that want to
own their own home."
With the median home
price in north Walton for
2011 at $69,900, Wenner-
berg emphasized that own-
ership could be in the at-
tendees' grasp with the right
advice. "Don't hesitate if you
find the right home at the
right price for your family,
p and sometimes, that might
be a starter home until you
grow enough for a larger or
more expensive one," she
added.
Wennerberg stressed that
j having an agent work for
the home-buyers' interest
was paramount in getting
the right deal. "Ask your


friends, ask your family, in-
erview agents, get the right
me for you and that repre-
sents you," she said. She also
advised that low bidding, or
assuming everything will go
perfectly through the clos-
ng process, often can add to
a buyers frustration. "It is a
process, but with the right
igent, well, they can make
t a more pain-free process,
or sure," she said. To see
properties available or to
contact agents go to www.
eamwalton.com
Next up was Kent Win-
:elseth, vice president and
production manager for GB
ShelterMortage, a division
Df Guaranty Bank. The per-
sonable Winkelelseth re-
ainded the audience that
here *are many different
ways to finance and when
louse hunting, pre-approv-
1l allows prospective home
buyers to know how much
tome they can afford. Win-
:elseth told the audience
;hat it was important to
:now that a trained loan of-
icer can often find financing
or them through many dif-
erent programs that offer
he buyer a greater amount
>f flexibility when making a
purchase. To find out more
about financing go to www.
vink41oans.com.
Walter Lindberg, retired
air force and owner of Ace
inspections, spoke with the
crowd about the importance
Af having a home inspected
before purchase. "You need
o know what you are get-
ing into. Any issues that
*ou find might drive own

Lindberg's business covers
buyers protection, seller
marketing, home warran-
ties and inspections for in-
surance coverage as well
as much more. To find out
more go to www.AceInspec-
tions.net.
Ronald Voelker with
Voelker Surveying talked
with the audience about
the ins and outs and the
sometimes exciting life of a
surveyor. "I've been threat-
ened with a hoe, a rake, and
a shotgun, just to mention
a few," he joked. "Knowing
where your property ends
and begins is very impor-
tant, not just to you but to
the people that finance your
loans as well. Most home-
owners need a survey before
buying or selling a property,
unless a recent one is al-
ready owned. You also don't
want to one day, 10 years
down the road, realize that
your neighbor's fence or
your fence sits on the wrong
property. Then it starts get-
ting costly. An ounce of pre-
vention is worth a pound of
cure when dealing with sur-
veys," he added.
Even though surveyors
sometimes meet the wrong
end of a gun out doing their
job, Voelker told the crowd
that surveyors are allowed to
trespass on private property
as long as it is in their line
of duty to survey a property
they have been contracted


to measure and map. "We do
our jobs everywhere, in the
middle of a field or a street.
There's no telling where you
will find yourself doing this
job," he added with a smile.

For buyers that might
have credit problems or
need to clean up their credit
reports, Nolan Fenoglio with
Credit Resurrection was
available for attendees to
meet. "A lot of people have
marks on their credit that
don't belong there. Many
companies sell this informa-
tion .,or these accounts and
don't go through the proper
channels to do it. That's
where we come in. We tidy
up prospective buyers' cred-
it so they can move into the
home they want," he said.

com.
Last but not least, Lisa
Mitchell with Mitchell Land
and Title, Inc. spoke briefly
on the importance of title
insurance. "When you pur-
chase a home, you want to
make sure it has a clear
title and deed. That's where
we come in. We are usually
the last people a prospec-
tive homeowner sees in the
home buying process. You
want to make sure that this
is your property, free and
clear from previous owners,"
she said. To find out more at

Annual Camellia Festival draws large crowd


Story and photos by
JEFFREYPOWELL
Parking spots were at a
premium last Saturday as
Eden Gardens State Park
held its annual Camellia
Festival. The normally
ample sized parking lot
was filled to capacity and
beyond as locals and out
of state visitors flocked to
the Feb. 25 event.


Attendees were able
to attend a variety of in-
structional demonstra-
tions concerning the
hardy camellia and other
plant oriented topics.
Longtime camellia grow-
ers Dr. Gorden Eade and
Manson Markette were
on hand to share their
expertise as were several
other experts.


Visitors were also able
to stroll through the
grounds and see over
a dozen exhibitors dis-
cuss pioneer times and
ways. The smell of wood
smoke wafted through
the area as many exhibi-
tors burned a fire to make
candles and fry cracklins'.
Plans are already under-
way for next years event.


"This is the best turn-
out we have ever had for
this event," said Friends
of Eden President Maryjo
Morris proudly. "We are
always happy to share
the park with visitors and
we are especially happy
to share it with all these
people today. This is a
great day at Eden Gar-
dens State Park."

the earth. She and her hus-
band, Tommy, the District
Superintendent of the West
Florida District Assemblies
of God, served as senior pas-
tors of Carmel Assembly of

arid Claresa.


Real



Social



Networking


By Ronnie McBrayer


I have a couple thou-
sand "friends" on Facebook,
and a few days ago I cyber-
smacked one of them over
the head like an ugly son-
in-law. He had made what I
thought was a very snarky,
malicious comment about
one of my awe-inspiring,
earth-shattering posts. Such
an offense I could not abide.
So, in defense of my opin-
ions (more accurately, my
ego), I took to the keyboard
and let him have it in front of
Mark Zuckerberg's 800 mil-
lion Facebook users (That's
right, if you haven't been
paying attention, Facebook
is now the third largest na-
tion on the planet, exceeded
only by the populations of
India and China). But a day
later I discovered it was a
huge misunderstanding.
My friend had not aimed
his comment at me; it was
directed at someone else.
Further, he was being more
sarcastic than sinister, more
playful than mean-spirited,
but it just didn't communi-
cate across the online su-
perhighway. I apologized -
profusely and retreated to
a corner of the World Wide
Web with my foot, mouse,
and keyboard in my mouth.
This whole incident, as
minor as it turned out to be,
is reflective of how we com-
municate and miscommuni-
cate in the 21st century. For
years I have noticed how
people will say things in e-
mails that they would never
say, to someone else's face
(good and bad), and I often
warn my children about this
as their thumbs blaze across
the QUERTY keypads of


1


cheese grits, and homemade
dessert. The cost for adults
is $8 and children under 10-
years-old is $5. All you can
eat (in-house only) is $10.

their cell phones.
"Social networking" sites
greatly magnify the effect,
an effect now known as
"online dis-inhibition." We
seem to lose our social re-
straint, our better judgment
- sometimes we lose our
minds completely while
hiding behind the pseudo-
invisibility of the Internet
and the digital airways.
A congressperson posts
racy pictures to his account
and scuttles his career; a
middle-aged husband rattles
all his marital skeletons on-
line and ends up in divorce
court; a high school foot-
ball star loses his promised
scholarship because of his
Twitter ratings; a young
woman can't land a job be-
cause prospective employers
Google her and deem her a
liability: These are the reali-
ties, virtual and otherwise,
of today's world.
I don't want to sound like
some crazed Luddite who
hates technology and pines
for the days of the rotary
phone or the covered wag-
on. I love WI-FI, streaming
video, GPS, downloadable
audio, and satellites. These
words you are reading were
typed on a laptop computer
I cannot live without, and
I've received a dozen emails
in the course of writing this
column. No, I'm not ready to
give up these things.
But neither am I ready to
accept all of these technolo-
gies without some critique
and discernment. While I
now recognize the countless
alternative ways we can
connect with others, I also
recognize that we are lone-

lier and more disconnected
than ever. I can see that we
are more aware of the world
around us than any previ-
ous generation, and yet I
see that we may be the most
narcissistic generation to
ever live in North America.
As "social networking"
grows, it appears we .must
guard against real commu-
nication disintegrating, and
the constant undermining
of real, human connection.
Technologies aside, we still
need flesh-and-blood rela-
tionships, connections that
are built upon mutual re-
spect, actual time together,
shared interests, and face-
to-face conversation.
People of faith may have
more at stake in this issue
than most, because faith
fails in a hyper-individual-
ized, self-centered world.
Faith only flourishes in the
environs of an authentic, un-
selfish community, not a vir-
tual imitation where people
hide behind their avatars.
I don't know all the an-
swers, but I do know that we
cannot share text messages
and shotgun blasted e-mails,
and call these conversations;
we would be better served by
sharing a quiet cup of coffee
and actually communicat-
ing with those around us. I
know that if we spent more
time looking people in the
eyes, rather than through
an LED display, the world
would be a better place.
And I know that we cannot
"click" our way to real com-
munity, because friendships
require actual presence, not
page counts.


Correction
Brother Lonnie Forehand would like to
clarify that he is not the pastor of Com-
munity Church. Community Church was
listed unintentionally in his article titled
"Emptiness. We apologize for any confu-
sion.
Forehand does hold revival meetings
every Thursday at the Civic Center

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

PDL Girls Capture Class A Title



Defeat Newberry 55-52 in Lakeland


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates. won two games
in the span of 25 hours in
Lakeland to capture the Ru-
ral Class A title with a 55-
52 victory over Newberry in
the final game of the season
on the morning of Feb. 22.
The Pirates got 26 points
from senior center Jasmine
Flock and survived a near-
meltdown at the free throw
line over the final three min-
utes to capture the school's
third title in the sport of
girls basketball in school
history.
PDL nearly found them-
selves in overtime as New-
berry's Lasharrah Nattiel
was fouled with eight sec-
onds left with the Panthers
trailing 54-52 only to miss
both free throw attempts
that could have tied the
game. Newberry fouled
the Pirates' JoJo Carlson
who hit the first of two free

throws before Newberry
grabbed the final rebound
of the game and launched
a desperation shot from 3/4
court that fell short to give
the Pirates the title.
"The girls really played
well. We had a 28-9 lead
at half but you knew they
were going to make a run.
I couldn't be more proud.
Jasmine had a great pair of
games, Jordan Thomas real-
ly played some good defense
for us and hit a few key
shots in the title game. We
played a lot better than we
did against Holmes County
in the semi-final and we
needed to if we were go-
ing to get the win," Pirates
coach Tim Alford said in a
telephone interview on Feb.
25.
PDL blasted the Pan-
thers in the first half as
they ran out to a 28-9 lead
as Newberry hit only 3-of-23
shots from the field during

the first 16 minutes of play,
including a woeful 1-of-10
from the floor to close out
the half. While the Panthers
were struggling, PDL was
pounding the ball inside to
Flock for points with Ashley
Harper and Jprdan Thomas
providing shots from behind
the arc.
Newberry got the pace of
the game up in the second
half and the Pirates cooled
off from the floor, not hitting
a three-point shot in the final
half of play. The Panthers
began to force ball-handling
mistakes from the Pirates
with aggressive defense as
PDL turned the ball over 19
times in the game. Newber-
ry's pressure got the Pan-
thers 60 shots from the field
compared to only 38 shots for
the Pirates. Newberry was
unable to take advantage of
the extra shots as they hit
only 18-of-60 from the floor
and 4-of-22 from behind the

South Walton run-rules Paxton in


Lady Cat's
By REID TUCKER
South Walton swept
Paxton in a non-district
softball contest, run-ruling
the Lady Cats 11-0 in five
innings.
The Seahawks (3-
1) got off to a three-run lead
in the first inning and never
looked back on Thursday,
Feb. 23, adding another
score in the top of the sec-
ond, five more the next in-
ning and two more in the
fourth. The closest Paxton
(0-1) came to getting some
runs of its own was in the
clutch in the bottom of the
fifth inning when South
Walton pitcher Meagan El-
lison gave up three singles
to load the bases. However,
with two outs against them,
the Lady Cats needed some a
big hit from Bethany Neale,
who, despite fighting to stay
alive through seven pitches,
eventually connected on a
grounder and was thrown
out on the way to first to end
the game early.
Former Walton pitcher
Camille Cosson led South
Walton at the plate, with
three hits and two RBIs,
though her team mate, Don-
ielle Geoffrion, had two hit
and five RBIs to her credit.
Altogether, South Walton
had nine players to get on
base and scored its 11 runs
via seven of those players.
Kaley Findley scored three
runs, while Eve Heffron and
Summer Davis scored two


softball season opener


runs apiece.
Ellison did a sol-
id five innings of work for
the Seahawks, with five
strikeouts to her credit, and
though she walked four and
had four hits, the Lady Cats
only threatened a score in
the bottom of the fifth in-
ning while South Walton
still had a surplus of runs
as a buffer. Paxton used
two pitchers in the contest,
with Leah Infinger throw-
ing through the first three
innings and Cassidy Brazile
taking over in the fourth
and fifth. Infinger gave up
nine hits, walked three bat-
ters and had a solitary K,
while South Walton got four
hits, two walks and a soli-
tary strikeout off Brazile.
After putting three
runs on the scoreboard in
the first inning, South Wal-
ton quickly added another
three batters into the rota-
tion in the second inning,
with Heffron being driven
in on an RBI double from
Cosson. The Seahawks got
a strikeout then turned a
double play after walking
the next two batters to send
Paxton back to the field in
the bottom of the third.
Leah Ellison got
on with a single at the top
of the third and she was
followed by Kaley Findley,
who was walked. Paxton's
infielders turned two quick
outs but South Walton re-
taliated with a single from


Geoffrion and a triple good
for three RBIs from Watson
..to make it a 7-0 ballgame.
The Seahawks weren't done
yet, either, as they tacked
on another two runs before
the Lady Cats could get that
last out a pinch-running
Meagan Ellison stole home
to make it 8-0 and Cosson
hit a double to send Heffron
around for another score.
Paxton had a good
look in the bottom of the
third inning when Infinger
gapped a double into the
middle of right field, but El-
lison struck out two Lady
Cat batters and then threw
out Infinger, who was at-
tempting to steal third.
The fourth inning
again saw South Walton
tack on some more runs.
This time the Seahawks
had the bases loaded twice
with Brazile on the mound
for Paxton. A Watson double
drove in Findley and Davis
to give the visiting team an
11-0 lead, enough for the
shutout win over Paxton, as
the Lady Cats were prevent-
ed from scoring when Neale
was tagged out on her way
to first.
Thus far in the young
season, South Walton's only
loss has come at Okaloosa
County's Choctawhatchee
High School, where the home
team narrowly beat the Sea-
hawks 6-5. Otherwise, South
Walton has beaten Freeport
7-3 and Baker 2-1.


"This is a goal we have
been working for since the
end of the 2011 season and
it was an extremely quick
turnaround. We left Sunday,
practiced Monday, played
early Tuesday, then even
earlier on Wednesday. We
pulled back in to the campus
on Wednesday night to a re-
ception. It's such a special
group, they have a lot to be
proud of," Alford added dur-
ing the Saturday interview.
"It's a good kind of tired."
Pirates senior Kate Car-
roll had said after defeating
South Walton in the Region
2 Final, "That was our goal,
get back to state, win the
title. We worked for the op-
portunity to play in Lake-
land again and we are not
going to let it slip away."
The whirlwind trip may
be over, but the Pirates will
be celebrating the outcome
for quite some time.
Team Notes: Flock was
outstanding in the title
game as she hit 8-of-ll
shots from the field, 10-of-
12 from the free throw line
while grabbing 12 rebounds.
Against Holmes County, she
hit 9-of-13 free throws while
grabbing 13 rebounds. Tim
Alford is 378-138, after 17
seasons at the school and
is responsible for two of the
school's three state titles in
girls basketball. Senior Jas-
mine Flock ended her career
with 43 points in her final
two games giving her a ca-
reer mark of 1,186 points
scored at the school. The
Lady Pirates defeated Hol-
mes County three times dur-
ing the year, 52-42 in Lake-
land, 64-47 in Bonifay and
74-58 in December to claim
the Holmes County Tourna-
ment. Newberry's Lashar-
rah Nattiel, a senior, led the
Panthers with 19 points in
the title game. Her uncle,
Ricky, played for the Florida
Gators as a wide receiver in
the 1980s. Newberry played
in their first title game in
school history for the girls
basketball program.

Turnovers prove costly as Chipley defeats



Paxton in regional basketball semifinal


By REID TUCKER
Paxton's state playoff run
came to a close at the hands
of the Chipley Tigers, who,
holding the visiting Bobcats
to 12 points in the second
half, sealed the deal on a
stinging 59-32 win.
Ultimately, the game
came down to the height
differential between Chip-
ley and Paxton, with the
Tigers towering over most
all players on the Bobcats'


bench. Turnovers were high
on Paxton's side. The Bob-
cats had 24 turnovers on the
night, and many of those
were either outright strips
or passes picked off by the
long arms of Chipley's play-
ers.
Though the Tigers and
Bobcats were fairly evenly
matched through the first
two quarters of the game,
(with Chipley ahead 27-20 at
the half) the night of Tues-


day, Feb. 21, belonged to
the home team, who surged
ahead in the latter periods.
Chipley's Alex Hamilton and
Cameron Dozier were forces
on offense, scoring 24 points
and 13 points, respectively,
while Tyrone Sharpe and
Tyler Oliver made big con-
tributions on defense, forc-
ing turnover after turnover
and swatting down what
shots the Bobcats put on the
goal.


The only Paxton player to
have a modicum of success
against Chipley, particu-
larly in the later stages of
the game, was Chad Zessin,
whose height allowed him to
go toe-to-toe with Chipley's
defense. Zessin scored 13
points on the night but none
of his teammates got out of
single digits.
The game began strate-
gically, though at a faster
pace than had Paxton's pre-

The South Walton Sea-

gave the Graceville Tigers
all they wanted for 32 min-
utes of the opening round
Class A playoff game on Feb.
21 but could not overcome


a sluggish third quarter as
the host squad ended the
Walton County team's sea-
son with a 54-50 decision.
South Walton (14-15) led
10-9 after the first eight min-
utes of play as both teams'
offenses struggled to get

going against pressure de-
fense applied by both teams.
Seahawks senior Edward
Howard nailed a three-point
shot to extend the lead to
15-11 early in the second
quarter and teammate Pax-
ton Dixon canned one of his
own from behind the arc to
push the lead to 21-17 mid-
way through the quarter.
Graceville forced 10 turn-
overs in the first half of play
and finished with a 6-1 run
to lead the game 23-22 at
intermission. Six different
players scored for the home
team in the first two quar-
ters with the Tigers hit-
ting 10-of-26 shots from the
floor.
The third quarter be-
longed to the host squad as
they forced a myriad of turn-
overs from the Seahawks in
pushing the lead to 33-28
behind a 10-0 run fueled by
their defense. South -Wal-
ton burned a timeout at the
3:14 mark to try and get the
offense back on track but
Graceville kept the pressure
on and held a 41-34 lead
heading into the final quar-
ter.
South Walton had more
than 20 turnovers on the
night and the Tigers kept
pounding the ball inside as
they ran the lead to 52-42
with three minutes to play
before Howard stroked an-
other three-point shot to
trim the margin to 52-45
with 83 seconds left in the
game.
Howard scored 10 of his
15 points in the final quar-
ter and Bishop Waldrop had
a pair of baskets to keep
the Seahawks close but
Graceville was able to hold
on behind their raucous
crowd to capture the four-
point victory.
Graceville (16-12) got 14
points from junior Marquis

terior was the difference in

vious game against District
1 champ Malone, with both
sides setting up their shots
with good ball-handling
punctuated by rapid bursts
of breakaway runs at the
basket. Paxton made four
of seven shots in the first
quarter to stay competitive,
but Chipley's volume of fire
pulled the team ahead by
a three-point margin. Zes-
sin attacked the goal with
4:57 left in the first to tie
the game 6-all, but Chip-
ley's Emanual Batson sankl
a deep two to start off a 6-0
run that left Paxton trailing
13-8 at the end of the quar-
ter.
The Bobcats never got'
closer the rest of the night.
Shooting and turnover
were nearly equal in the
second quarter but Pax-
ton nevertheless trailed by
seven at halftime under the
dunks and steals-into-layup
plays of Hamilton and Dozi-
er. Paxton scored 12 points
in the second, with Marcus
Bradley landing a two and
sinking a 3 to help keep the
Bobcats afloat, but things
turned sour for the Walton
County team in the third
quarter.


Paxton scored just two
points in the third period,
and though Chipley only ac-
crued nine of its of own the
Tigers nevertheless whittled
away at the Bobcats' chances
by forcing six turnovers. Up
36-22 with 1:30 left in the
quarter, Chipley was con-
tent to hold onto that mar-
gin and held onto the ball,
playing keep-away to shave
time from the clock. How-
ever, the Tigers exploded
in the fourth quarter, post-
ing 23 points to Paxton's 10,
putting the Bobcats behind
by 20 points, then 25, then
nearly 30 before the end of
the game.
Chipley, which has never
won the state champion-
ship, defeated 13-time state
title winner Malone 73-63
on Saturday, Feb. 25, to ex-
tend its winning streak to
22 games. The Tigers held a
record of 24-3 as of Tuesday
morning, when the Tigers
were set to face West Gads-
den in the semifinal round of
the state tournament. More
details on that game will ap-
pear in next week's edition.
Paxton finished its season
as the District 1-A runner-
up with a 20-7 record.

record from 1990-92. Coach
Stephens got his first job as

Holmes County handed
the Walton baseball team
their first loss of the sea-
son with a 2-0 decision in
nine innings on a blustery
Thursday night last week.
Brendan Leach started
the game and went six in-
nings with nine strikeouts
before giving way to Angus
Anderson, who pitched the
seventh and eighth innings
before departing for Charlie
Stevenson. Holmes County,
which threw left-hander
Will Thompson for seven in-
nings, used Ty Russ over the
final two frames. Thompson
recorded 15 strikeouts dur-
ing his time on the mound
but left with a no-decision
though he did drive in both
runs with a double in the
top of the ninth inning.
Holmes County touched up
Stevenson for both runs and
claimed the win, dropping
Walton to 2-1 on the season.
Chris Kelly and Brennon
Orcutt had the only two hits
for the Braves.

Guarachi (South Walton
High School) was named
the Southeastern Confer-
ence Player of the Week for

of her singles matches in
straight sets, coming back
from a 5-2 deficit in the sec-
ond set against the Mus-
tang's Dominique Harmath
to win 7-5 and clinch the

pair in the nation, while
Guarachi ranks 40th in sin-
gles.

nis player Erin Stephens

Freshman of the Week as
announced by the league of-
fice on Feb. 22. The native of
Santa Rosa Beach rallied to
defeat SMU's Elena Fayner
at No. 3 singles to put the
Rebels up 3-1 in the match,
setting up teammate Abby
Guthrie's clinching win at
No 5 singles. After drop-
ping the first set, Stephens

by Rangel for an 8-1 win at
No. 2 doubles, improving to
6-3 at that spot. Stephens

four-match losing streak
and improve to 10-1 in home
openers under head coach
Mark Beyers.

Annual Mobility Impaired
Hunt on Eglin's property.
"We are delighted to help
with this effort each year,"
said Lt. Dewey Adams. "The
event affords us an oppor-
tunity to get involved with
citizens outside of the law
enforcement environment."
During the first weekend
in February, members of the
"Wounded Warrior Project"
and other hunters partici-
pated in an event targeting
whitetail deer, wild hogs and
coyote. Children between
the ages of 10 and 15 were
accompanied by their par-
ents to participate in hunt-
ing activities the weekend of
Feb. 11. Approximately 50
hunters participated each
weekend.

By DOTTY NIST
Suzanne Harris' legal rep-
resentation recently filed an
amended complaint on her
behalf in connection with
her lawsuit against Walton
County.
This is in connection the
lawsuit challenging Walton
County's acquisition of a
.45-acre parcel at the U.S.
331-Chat Holley Road in-
tersection. The suit includes
the request that the court
"declare void" the purchase
of the property and "demand
repayment" of all taxpayer
funds expended in connec-
tion with the transaction.
Harris' original lawsuit,
filed on Nov. 21 in Walton
County Circuit Court, had
named the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners as the only defen-
dant. The amended com-
plaint, filed on Feb. 16,
includes 331 Bayside Prop-
erties, L.L.C., and attorney
George Ralph Miller as de-
fendants. Walton County,
Florida is also substituted
for the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners as
the other defendant.
In a motion filed in De-
cember, Walton County had
made the argument that
the plaintiffs' naming of the
"Walton County Board of
County Commissioners" as
defendant rather than "Wal-
ton County" was improper.
Section 125.15 of Florida
Statutes, which reads, "The
county commissioners shall
sue and be sued in the name
of the county of which they
are commissioners," was
cited.
However, like the original
complaint, Harris' amended
complaint states that she
"reserves the right to move
that this Court assess her
attorneys' fees and costs
against individual mem-
bers of the CountyGovern-
ment...."
Defendant 331 Bayside
Properties, L.L.C., is the
company from which the
county purchased the half-
acre parcel for right-of-way
and road improvements to

Sen. Bill Nelson honored


at Seaside brunch


From FRANK DAY
A brunch honoring for-
mer Florida Insurance Com-
missioner and currently
two-term U.S. Senator Bill
Nelson, was hosted this past
Sunday morning (Feb. 26)
in the Seaside home of town
founders Robert and Daryl
Davis. Co-hosts were Dave
Rauschkolb, owner of Sea-
side's Bud and Alley's Res-
turant, Charles Morgan, co-
owner of the Red Bay Store,
and owner of other restau-
rants in the area including
Harbor Docks in Destin. All
the food for this event was
prepared by the staff of Bud
and Alleys Resturant. The
crowd filled the dining and
living rooms and spilled out
onto both screened porches.
Sen. Nelson spoke of the
difficulties in government
with the current gridlock
caused by partisan politics
and a desire for a return to
a time when political oppo-
nents could respectfully dis-
agree in policy debates but
at the end of the day were
still friends. He credited for-
mer Florida governor and
senator Bob Graham with
using a football analogy in
describing good govern-
ment as occurring between
the 40 yard line... near the
middle of the field," but un-
fortunately today everyone
seems to be working from

legal complaint


against Walton


County


Chat Holley Road and the
road's intersection with U.S.
331. The L.L.C. is owned
by Lloyd Blue and his wife
Alexa Pleas. Miller served
as special counsel for the
county for oversight of the
purchase of the parcel. The
amended complaint says of
each that the county main-
tains it to be "an indispen-
sible party" that "should be
included in this litigation."
In other developments
with the lawsuit since its fil-
ing, on Dec. 28, Harris' rep-
resentatives met with those
of the county and agreed
that "paper discovery" would
proceed immediately with
the litigation, The county
agreed to make the commis-
sioners available for deposi-
tion in writing by no later
than the end of March, or as
otherwise agreed to by the
parties.
In early January, Wal-
ton County filed a request
for production by Harris of:
copies of all documents and
materials received by her in
response to any of her pub-
lic records requests to Wal-
ton County related to Chat
Holley Road, Miller, or Blue;
all e-mails between herself
and Walton County; copies
of all cell phone bills con-
taining records of commu-
nication between her and
Walton County; copies of
correspondence between her
and Walton County; copies
of all video/audio recordings
of any meeting or commu-
nication between her and
Walton County; and copies
of all video/audio recordings
and photographic records
in her possession related to
Chat Holley Road, Miller, or
Blue. The county's request
for production covered the
period from Jan. 1, 2010 to
the present.

Harris is being represent-
ed in the litigation by the
law firm of Keefe, Anchors,
Gordon & Moyle in Fort
Walton Beach. The Warner
Law firm of Panama City is
representing Walton Coun-
ty.


Driftwood Estates homeowners sue Walton County


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County has been
challenged to demonstrate
its authority to issue build-
ing permits for construction
within the Sandestin Devel-
opment of Regional Impact
(DRI), which includes Drift-
wood Estates.
This was through a legal
challenge, filed on Feb. 22
in Walton County Circuit
Court, on behalf of the the
Greater Driftwood Estates
Homeowners Association
and five individual hom-
eowners.
Most of the Driftwood
property, an arrowhead-
shaped bayfront peninsula
located adjacent to Sandes-
tin Resort, was part of the
Sandestin DRI master plan,


which the county approved
in 1976. While under sepa-
rate ownership and with
its roadway connection to
Sandestin walled off, Drift-
wood remains officially a
part of the Sandestin DRI.
In the lawsuit, the hom-
eowners claim the existence
of noncompliance with the
DRI, the associated develop-
ment order and ordinances
in a number of ways. The
lawsuit cites Florida Stat-
utes 380.06(17), which
states, "Local governments
shall not issue any permits
or approvals or provide any
extensions of services if the
developer fails to act in sub-
stantial compliance with the
development order."
Among other alleged


noncompliance issues, the
homeowners maintain that
an area in the interior of
the Driftwood peninsula,
approved by the county for
development of 463 home
sites, remains designated as
open space in the DRI.
From the mid-2000s, resi-
dents have often complained
to county commissioners of
severe flooding issues since
the beginning of develop-
ment in the interior.
The lawsuit alleges that
more than 700 lots in Drift-
wood I and II "do not meet
the stormwater retention
requirement of 6.7 inches"
in violation of the DRI.
Two months ago, in
January, at the request of
Driftwood homeowners and


based on potential noncom-
pliance issues associated
with the DRI, the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) had
suspended the issuance of
building permits for Block G
in the interior of Driftwood.
The BCC had voted on Jan.
24 to continue that suspen-
sion while staff evaluated
potential noncompliance in
connection with open space
and stormwater drainage
standards. However, on
Feb. 14, at the recommen-
dation of staff and over the
objections of homeowners,
commissioners voted to re-
instate building permit is-
suance for Driftwood.
The decision came after
testimony by special legal


counsel and that noncom-
pliance issues did not meet
the threshold of being sub-
stantial enough to warrant
continuation of the building
permit ban.
In their lawsuit, the ho-
meowners request that,
unless the county is able to
demonstrate that the DRI
"is in substantial compli-
ance," that the court provide
relief, including prohibiting
the county from issuing de-
velopment or construction
permits or "providing devel-
opment services" anywhere
within the Sandestin DRI,
until such compliance is
demonstrated.
There has been no filing
by the county in response to
the homeowners' litigation
at this time.

WIton County SnDowbirJd News

Intermittent showers didn't discourage golfers who participated in the annual Presi-
dent's Cup challenge, a contest between the U.S. and Canadian Walton County Snowbird
men. While many of the U.S. teams completed play at one under par, the day went to the
Canadians for the fourth consecutive year when the team of Dave Dargie, Frank Hall,
Sue Frith,'and Larry Wright led the Canadians to a four under par. (Due t'b last minute
changes in the line-up, Sue Frith joined the men's team to even out the number of play-
ers.) Concurrent with the President's Cup Tournament was the Ladies Charity Scramble.
Two teams tied for a first place finish. Carolyn Leffler, Linda Batdorf, Ginny Lingard, and
Kathy Inglis turned in a score of 76. Mary Book, Trina Macintyre, Margaret McPheran,
and Suzie Cizmar turned in the tying score. The occasion serves double duty in that it is a
fund raising event for the Shelter House of Fort Walton Beach.
Every successful not-for-profit organization has at its center a corps of behind the scenes
volunteers, you know the kin'd- the ones who keep the lights turned on and the wheels
greased. They attend meetings for which no one else has time. They solve those headachy
problems while guiding the ship with a gentle hand on the tiller. Four club officers, each of
whom has approached his or her task with the indefatigable drive of the truly committed,
have announced an intention to retire. Betty Cardwell served as treasurer for eight years
and in that capacity kept careful count of the organization's revenues and expenditures
and set a standard that all others who handled club finances strived to satisfy. She relied
upon the able assistance of Assistant Treasurer and budgetmeister Hugh Barnard, who
like Betty, will take a break from fiscal responsibility after the current season. Donna
Bruder served as club secretary for eight years during which time she kept a careful and
accurate record of club activities, correspondence and other official documents of critical
importance to a well run organization...and did so with unflappable poise. Leaving, too, is
Betty Swenson, a long time volunteer and creme de la creme among snowbird artists, who
served as webmaster and Information Officer and over several years performed a variety of
administrative tasks that kept the Walton County Snowbirds running like a Swiss watch.
Those who come after have big shoes to fill!
The Special People roster gained four additional names with the announcement of pend-
ing changes in the Snowbird Singers leadership. Carol Addington who along with hus-
band, Bill, founded the singing group 14 years ago, retired after the 12th year, passing
the mantle to Karl Keilhau who with wife Pat serving as business manager, continued
the tradition of helping more than 50 snowbirds raise their voice' in song. When health
issues delayed Karl and Pat's return to the Emerald Coast for the current season, Carol,
in a save-the-day gesture, returned as co-director. Recently, both Karl Keilhau and Carol
Addington, long term snowbirds, 21 years for the Keilhaus and 18 for the Addingtons,
announced a desire to remain in their snowy climes next year. See their farewell perfor-
mances 2 p.m. March 3 at Santa Rosa Beach Community Church, 3524 West Highway 98
and 10 a.m. March 7 at the annual meeting, same place.
The Creative Writers report Carole Zoller's peers awarded her, for the second time,
the top Description Challenge award. Roy Murray gained the top spot in the succeeding
week's description challenge. The writers are now evaluating more than 60 stories created
during the 10-week workshop from which they will select the workshop's best story.
The Tuesday golf league reports a tie Feb. 21 between Jack Flaherty and Don Gehrke's
teams. Closest to pin awards went to Manley Dillerud and Bob Kane.

SWMCD discusses accounting and legal support contracts


By BEN GRAFTON

The South Walton Mos-
quito Control District
(SWMCD) monthly meet-
ing opened with CPA Kevin
Boyer presenting the results
of the District's annual fi-
nancial audit. He reported
that there were no major
issues and continued with
a management analysis.
The district's assets, as of
Nov. 1, 2011, were $1.694
million, a large portion of
which was in cash. He noted
that revenue for the period
at $1.102 million was down,
but then expenses, although
greater than revenue, were


down too and were covered
by available resources. The
auditors did not find any
deficiencies in internal con-
trols.
A discussion followed
about approval of a new
contract with Warren
Averett/O'Sullivan Creel for
accounting services. Chair-
man John McGee voiced
concern about "open ends"
in the contract. Boyer in-
dicated that arbitrary fees
would not be changed with-
out prior notice to the dis-
trict. Commissioner Jim
Crawford proposed having
the contract reviewed by an
attorney before it was ap-


proved but a later motion to
approve without review was
passed by a 2 1 vote.
A discussion about the dis-
trict's legal services agree-
ment with attorney Wycoff
ensued. Hudson indicated
he wanted to see an invoice
each month and made a mo-
tion, which was approved, to
pay the current bill. Hudson
also proposed that the at-
torney attend the first three
meetings and thereafter he
would attend only when his
services were requested. It
was agreed that any of the
commissioners can ask the
attorney to attend a meet-
ing. The commissioners ap-


proved the legal services
agreement.
Commissioner Bob Hud-
son remarked that in 2011
an effort was made to re-
duce post-employment ben-
efits and that he hoped more
progress- could be made in
2012.
Director Ben Brewer re-
ported that some areas have
been sprayed and inspected
and that the district has a
permit to remove beavers
from some areas.
Brewer proposed getting
bids on chemicals from four
companies. He noted that
when larvacides could be
used they were the most ef-

St. Patrick's Day


parade planned


fective control measure. The
bids would provide prices
for the whole year.
A discussion followed
about the need to treat some
of the extensive acreage of
state lands in south Walton
County. 'Brewer pointed out
that identifying wetland ar-
eas on these lands should be
a goal. Crawford commented
that accessing the wet areas
was difficult due to the lack
of roads. Hudson believes
that obtaining mapping
software for the computer
would help manage these
lands and McGee added
that information should
be acquired from the State
Forestry Division. Brewer
was asked to find out what
constraints the state places
on mosquito control on its
lands.
McGee brought the at-
tention of the commission to
Florida House Bill 107 which
is designed to allow coun-
ties to do away with service
districts including mosquito
control districts. He said the
bill includes a requirement


for voter approval to discon-
tinue a district.
Brewer reported he has
contacted a number of
schools about establishing a
program to give talks to stu-
dents about mosquito con-
trol. Commissioners made
recommendations includ-
ing: contacting curriculum
directors to get sanctioning
for the program; asking for
a science teacher to help
prepare the presentation;
and finding out what state
requirements are for this
program.
Hudson proposed evalu-
ating a long term disability
program for employees. He
will ask representatives of
providers to attend the next
meeting to discuss these
programs with the commis-
sioners.
Hudson asked Brewer to
work out a way to have em-
ployees schedule accrued
time off in advance. Brewer
will make the point that ac-
crued time off must be taken
before Sept. 30 or it will be
lost.


Big changes are in place
for the 5th Annual 30a St.
Patrick's Parade slated for
Friday, March 1.6 at 3 p.m.
Forming on Scenic 30A near
The Preserve, the parade
heads westbound ending at
Gulf Place.
The event began as a
small parade in 2008, and
has now grown to a parade
plus festival complete with
green beer, Guinness-spon-
sored banners, rocking en-
tertainment and an Irish
good time.
The year 2012 is a banner
year for the parade, bringing
in highly acclaimed Celtic
band Mickle-A-Do from At-
lanta.
The Grand Marshal of the
parade will be Jac McTighe,
who follows previous Grand
Marshals Rick Talbert, Fire
Chief, Commissioner Ceci-
lia Jones, Sheriff Michael
Adkinson and Deputy Fire
Chief Sean Hughes. Jac has
also been Grand Marshal of'
the Atlanta St. Patrick's Pa-
rade..
"We are so delighted to
have Mickle-A-Do this year,


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

Holiday Road residents prevail in appeal


By DOTTY NIST

North Holiday Road
residents Mike and Shari
Judkins were successful in
their appeal of the county
planning director's decision
regarding a business selling
drywall materials that had
located in their neighbor-
hood the previous summer.
Majority of the members
of the Walton County Zoning
Board of Adjustments (ZBA)
agreed with the Judkins in
their challenge of the plan-
ning director's ruling on the
business. The decision took
place at the ZBA's Feb. 23
meeting at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.
Walton County Planning
and Development Services
Director Wayne Dyess has
made the determination to
allow the business, known


as Creative Wall Products,
to remain in operation
across the street from the
Judkins' home.
The neighborhood is in
a Coastal Center land use
area, which, according to
the Walton County Land
Development Code is "pri-
marily residential, allowing
medium residential densi-
ties and supporting uses."
Some commercial uses
are listed as allowable in
Coastal Center. Among uses
specified are a variety of re-
tail stores, garden supply
stores, vehicle parts stores,
service businesses such as
printers, upholstery shops,
local laundromats/clean-
ers, light mechanical repair
stores, and others.

ZBA Chairman Joe John-
son asked Mike Judkins if it


was his opinion that the dry-
wall business did not belong
in Coastal Center. "Abso-
lutely," Judkins responded,
"it's heavy industrial."
The Judkinses testified
that they are awakened at
5 a.m. by large trucks and
semis making deliveries to
the business, and that deliv-
eries to and from the store
continue throughout the
day. "Our lives and those
of people who live in the
neighborhood are being en-
dangered," Shari Judkins
complained.
Mike Judkins told the
board members that over the
past 20 years there has been
conflict in his and Shari's
neighborhood with what he
described as heavy industri-
al businesses being allowed
to locate there. "We've been
waiting for years for the


code to be enforced," Shari
Judkins asserted.
The Judkinses were asked
how many of the 12 lots in
the vicinity of their home
had a residential home on
them. They responded two
lots, adding that four lots are
owned by a church, which is
located next to the business
in question.
"Every use is not defined,"
Dyess testified. He said that
in deciding whether the busi-
ness was an allowable use,
he had considered which of
the uses listed for Coastal
Center would be the closest
in impacts to those associ-
ated with the business. He
had concluded that the busi-
ness, which sold paint and
drywall supplies on a retail
basis, fell between a garden
supply store and a light me-
chanical repair store. The

Animal Shelter.


drywall business' build-
ing is not very large, Dyess
commented, and some of
the listed uses for Coastal
Center, laundromats for ex-
"ample, would result in more
trip generation.
"But it's not a garden
center, is it?" Mike Judkins
questioned.
Dyess was asked if he
had considered that the
business might be an indus-
trial use. He responded that
he did not because the code
refers to industrial as being
associated with manufac-
ture, and nothing was being
assembled at the business.
Dyess stated that he had
made his decision on the
business in good faith, us-
ing interpretation, following
the code and relying on the
methodology that he had
been taught.

In response to board
member Tony Vallee's ques-
tion, Dyess also testified
that in his opinion the use
was one that supported the
neighborhood. While con-
tractors might do business
there, individuals were also
able to make purchases, he
noted.
Vallee also asked if
Coastal Center called for a
minimization of intensity.
Dyess said that it does, add-
ing that if a Lowe's wanted
to locate within that land
use, "it would be a whole
different story...out of the
question."
Dyess noted that the mat-
ter had previously been the
subject of a code complaint.
Shari Judkins said that she
and Mike had filed a code
complaint after the drywall
business moved into their
neighborhood in August
2011. She said the build-
ing where it located had sat
empty for two years before
the business came in.
The Judkinses called
Walton County Code En-
forcement Officer J.C. Alford
as a witness. Alford testified


that he had visited the dry-
wall business several times
to investigate the code com-
plaint on it. He said he was
told by people operating the
business that the products
sold there were available
to anyone wanting to buy
them, and that they offered
delivery or people could pick
up their products. Some
products were sold in bulk
and some were available for
purchase one by one, Alford
explained.
ZBA member Scott
Rosenheim asked Alford is
this was a retail business,
and Alford responded that it
was.
"Anybody can put a candy
bar on their counter and say
they are retail," countered
Shari Judkins.
Alford was asked if he
thought homeowners in the
neighborhood would pur-
chase materials from the
drywall store. He responded
that a homeowner making
an addition to their home or
remodeling would possibly
'purchase materials there.
Vallee commented that
Coastal Center seemed to be
more oriented toward busi-
ness that residents could
walk to and more focused on
downplaying activities oc-
curring within the land use
area.

Board member Kim
Wennerberg remarked that
she understood how Dyess
had come to the conclusion
he did, but that she was not
sure she agreed. She added
that the business seemed to
be more focused on "business
to business" sales than sales
to "people walking in."
A motion for denial of the
Judkins' appeal failed in
a 2-5 vote, resulting in the
granting of their appeal.

Following the meeting,
Dyess said the ZBA decision
would mean that the busi-
ness was out of compliance
and would have to relocate.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 1,2012


If you watch the show, you can't help but be
drawn in to what they find and where they find it.
The nation is captivated with the History Chan-
nel show, American Pickers, and the craze is lead-
ing thousands to take to the highways to find their
own hidden treasure.


Just like any other television
show, the hit series American
Pickers, has secured its niche
of television viewers and begun
an epidemic of people collect-
ing, searching, investigating,
purchasing and trying to get
their hands on anything old. It
has caused not only a buy/sell
craze in the United States, but
it has also kick-started a move-
ment called picking!
Last year, it was all about
the storage wars and the auc-
tions where you can bid on a
storage unit that has past rent
due. The auction would begin
with the lock being cut off the
unit door, and those bidders
would give their best bid to win
the items hidden behind the
metal roll-up doors.
Well if you enjoy doing that
sort of thing, then you quickly
saw that once the idea hit the
airwaves, what was a small
auction two years ago, now
draws in hundreds. I can attest
to that because I did enjoy go-
ing to them, but once the stor-
age war shows hit three differ-
ent cable television channels,
no more. My last attempt at
showing up at a storage facility
where three units being auc-
tioned off, saw more than 200
hungry, greedy, snarling people
(like me) showing up to bid.
But American Pickers is
quite different in its approach


to find the "holy grail!" They
actually have research teams
that stake out those rundown
barns, those sheds in the back
of old houses, and contact the
owner, before they stop at any
yard that has more than two
stripped- down antique cars
sitting in the front yard.
If you are wondering, yes the
show has filmed down South
more times then we need to dis-
cuss, just because of the many
yards that fit that description.
The show, which airs every
Monday night at 8 p.m. on the
History Channel, shows two
men who have a mission. Find
those objects that are rare,
hard to find, easy to sell, and
strike up the most interesting
conversations.
Of course they have the net-
work research team that does
the legwork, but the show has
inspired millions to dig through
those old,barns, and stop at
houses that look almost, unin-
habitable.
Well this past weekend, I hit
the road and traveled around
the South (not giving my sourc-
es away), to find some very
sought-after whiskey barrels,
and other items that would
make even the boys on Ameri-
can Pickers envious. What an
adventure. Oh, the characters
you meet along the way, be-
cause not only are you buying


antiques or collectables from
the seller, you are buying a
piece of American history that
the seller has a close connec-
tion with for many reasons.
One of the stops around
my Southern Pickin' trip, was
in Birmingham, Ala., where I
found one of the most unique
and "coolest" antique, vintage,
and retro shops I have ever
found, and believe me, I have
searched in every major city in
the U.S.
"What's On 2nd" is not just a
place to find an antique lamp or
1950s Elvis memorabilia, it is
a treasure-trove of the unique
and unusual. With three stories
of plastic outdoor Christmas
nativity scenes, 1950s and '60s
retro lighting and furniture,
vintage clothing, books, records
and toys, and just all around
neat finds, the store appeals to


all ages and walks of life.
Nestled on Second Avenue
in downtown, the curiosity shop
has clients and visitors from all
over the world, and really is
one of the most eclectic shops in
the United States. Just a quick
drive by the front of the estab-
lishment, the unusual lighting,
the oversized furniture and the
eye-catching characters walk-
ing in, just makes you park
your car and check it out for
yourself.
Now this is the only place
I will reveal, where I made a
stop this past weekend on my
Southern Pickin' trip. After a
good night's sleep, it was time
to hit the road again and travel
a few more hours to where I
would find the whiskey barrels
that were the main object to
purchase on this trip.
Though we had to go


FROM STRANGE AND ODD, to collectable and rare,
there are many antique and vintage stores throughout the
South, that cater to all collectors' needs. Like the popular
History Channel Show, "American Pickers," it just takes
time, persistence, and motivation, to find that rare trea-
sure.

through small towns and com-
munities, once we came across
the yard where I was to make
the purchase, I knew right then
that we were there. Of course it
didn't hurt to see nearly 50 sets
of '50s and '60s metal glider
rockers and sets sitting behind
the house.

Once we had made our pur-
chase, the kind retired coal
miner who was the owner of the
barrels invited us in to see the
old rundown house he had a few
items stored in, and allowed me
to make some more purchases
if I so desired. Inside was not
only filled from ceiling to floor
with antiques, but with vin-
tage toys, pottery, lamps, and
the most unusual collectable, a
33-gallon trashcan, filled to the
brim with vintage clothing but-
tons.
After three more hours of
digging and seeing and hear-
ing the history of that area, I
paid the gentlemen, and pulled
away with a 14 foot Penske
truck, filled to the roof. I even
referred to myself as "the Pick-
er in Pursuit!"
He was one of many stops
in antique shops, flea markets
and collectable houses, and
they kept the tires to my Pen-
ske burning up the asphalt.


Though some of the places men-
tioned and noted in the many
antique trail magazines are
said to be "the best," use your
better judgment, and research
them on the Internet before hit-
ting the buying trail.
Like the American Pickers
show, there are stories with ev-
ery piece of antique and collect-
able. With that piece, there is a
part of history that has helped
shape our country, and a rea-
son why so many people are
collecting now, more than ever.
Before hitting the road on
your own buying trip, map
out the location, be aware of
knock-offs, do your own exten-
sive research, call the owner, or
the one selling, and make sure
there are accommodations, be-
cause if you are like me, three
days just barely skims the sur-
face. One more
piece of advice that many have
learned the hard way always
call ahead and make arrange-
ments to check out an old barn
or house on someone else's
property. Don't just show up!
For many, a surprise visit
isn't always appreciated, and
digging through someone else's
private possessions, is the fast-
est way to meet the owner, and
his best friend, Colt .45.
Happy picking!


FROM CORVETTES TO CADILLACS, the annual Rt.
30A Antique & Vintage Car Show will have it all. Applica-
tions for participants with vehicles produced prior to 1982,

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 1,2012


Beach Hounds howl again


BEACH HOUNDS PRESIDENT Chick Huettel speaks to
members.


TONY RIGGIO, legendary former FBI agent, was fea-
tured speaker for the gathering.


Story and photos by
DOTTY NIST
It's no mystery that
the Emerald Coast Beach
Hounds' celebration of Sher-
lock Holmes' birthday grows
bigger every year. There's
nothing like the once-a-year
event, and for locals it's just
what the doctor ordered---
Dr. Watson, of course.
Convening at Bayou Bill's
in Santa Rosa Beach on
Feb. 21, the Beach Hounds
solved a mystery and initi-
ated the biggest-ever group
of new members. This was
the seventh annual meeting
for the group, which is now
the largest in the state.
The club is one of an esti-
mated 1,020 worldwide, all
of which take their names
from the adventures of the
famous sleuth. The local
group's name comes from
the "Hound of the Basker-
villes."
Beach Hounds President
Chick Huettel recalled the
club being founded with
just 12 members seven
years ago. He noted that
the Beach Hounds have al-
ready surpassed the normal
life span of Sherlock Holmes
clubs, which is five years.
Tony Riggio, the fea-
tured speaker, entertained
the gathering with details
on his career as a former
FBI agent. Riggio had been
billed as "almost legendary"
in his pursuit of organized
crime.
"I was legendary," Rig-
gio assured the members.
Indeed, the movie "Kill the
Irishman" is based on the
work of Riggio and his asso-
ciates.
"We did get the job done,"
Riggio remarked.
The club presented Rig-
gio with the Holmes Award
for the year.


Unlike some Sherlock
Holmes societies, the Beach
Hounds do not limit the
number of members in their


club. All are invited to their
annual celebrations, which
are announced in advance
in the media.


Information on Sherlock
Holmes societies is available
on line at www.sherlockian.
net/societies.

on the Emerald Coast is
a 58-bed hospital located

profit hospital has grown
steadily and continues to
fulfill its mission to improve
the health of the community
at large, with special atten-
tion to service of the poor.

of the nation's 100 Top Hos-
pitals by Thomson Reuters


in 2009 and was also among
23 hospitals in the country
to receive the Everest Award
for National Benchmarks.
