DOT


revises proposal for


U.S. 331 and bay bridge


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County is still
eyeing a $75 million local
match in order for two lanes
to be added to the U.S. 331
bay bridge. However, as a
result of a March 5 meeting
between state Department
of Transportation (DOT)
officials, county officials,
Walton County Taxpayers
Association members and
other citizens, DOT's offer
to the county regarding the
bridge and the four-laning
of U.S. 331 is being revised
in a way that may alleviate
some concerns.
In December, DOT offi-
cials had announced plans
to, as soon as 2013, begin
construction on an addition-
al span to widen the bridge
to four lanes, a $177-million
project---on the condition
of Walton County provid-
ing $75 million in matching
funds. The plans came with
assurances by the state of-
ficials for the remainder of
U.S. 331 to be four-laned all


the way to 1-10 within the
next few years if the county
agreed to help fund con-
struction of the bridge.
DOT had indicated that,
without the $75 million
matching funds being pro-
vided by Walton County,
the $102 million that DOT
was allocating to widen the
bridge would go to other
needs, which could be in any
area of the state.
Funding alternatives
identified by the county for
the matching funds included
agreeing to have the state
place a toll on the new bridge
span or raising the sales tax
in order to pay off the bonds
or loan that would provide
the $75 million. Apprehen-
sive about the impact of a
toll on working people com-
muting across the bridge, on
Feb. 14 the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) made the de-
cision not to ask the state to
impose the toll to fund the
match. Also on that date,


the BCC voted to schedule
an April 24 referendum at
which voters would decide
whether to raise the sales
tax by one-half cent per dol-
lar on taxable items in or-
der to fund the $75 million
match.
On Feb. 28, the BCC
agreed to support citizens
in a request to DOT that the
$102 million that DOT had
programmed for the bridge
project be redirected to U.S.
331 four-laning instead, and
the March 5 meeting was
scheduled with DOT offi-
cials in Tallahassee. Pend-
ing the request, the printing
of ballots for the referendum
was delayed by two weeks.
Community leader Bon-
nie McQuiston, who was
one of the attendees at the
March 5 meeting, described
it as "very positive." Mc-
Quiston said the widening
of U.S. 331 and the bridge
were presented by state of-
ficials as "one complete proj-
ect."


Contacted on March 6,
Ian Satter, public informa-
tion officer for DOT Dis-
trict 3, said that it was his
understanding that DOT
Secretary Ananth Prasad
had agreed to put in writing
DOT's commitment to have
all of U.S. 331. as far north
as 1-10 four-laned by 2017
if Walton County agreed to
participate in the funding of
the bridge project.
He said DOT would be
working to identify sources
for the approximately $78
million currently unfunded
that would be necessary to
complete the four-laning of
the highway to 1-10.
Satter said Prasad had
"reiterated" that the $75 mil-
lion local match would still
be required by the county in
order for the bridge project
to proceed---and that the
$102 million programmed
for the project could be used
only for the bridge or other-
wise go to other needs state-
wide.


Satter said it. had been
agreed that Walton County
would have additional time
to explore possibilities and
consider whether the county
would participate in fund-
ing the bridge project. Pre-
viously DOT officials had
indicated that the county
would have a May deadline
to make a decision.
Also discussed at the
March 5 meeting was a com-
mitment by DOT not to raise
the toll on the new bridge
span if a toll were imposed,
Satter said. If a toll is im-
posed, DOT has pledged to
remove it once the $75 mil-
lion matching fund amount
is obtained---and to fund
maintenance and repairs
of the bridge from the DOT
budget rather than tolls.
Satter said discussion
also included a reduced
bridge toll for residents or
making a bridge Sunpass
with a reduced monthly rate

Bald eagle


released back


into the wild


AMANDA WILKERSON, the bird handler, and the guest of honor.


Story and photos by
BEN GRAFTON
At the end of January
2012, an injured small adult
male bald eagle was found
in the vicinity of White-
field Road a few miles west
of Freeport. The bird was
turned over to the Emerald
Coast Wildlife Refuge of
Northwest Florida in Fort
Walton Beach.
What caused the injuries
is something of a mystery,
but a best guess by Amanda
Wilkerson, Director of the
Wildlife Refuge is that the
bird was attacked by anoth-
er eagle, possibly a female.
In any event the Wildlife
Refuge undertook the task
of nursing the bird back to
health in hopes of returning
it to the wild.
The recovery period had
its trials. At first the eagle
would not eat and so it was


necessary to force-feed to
bird. Another concern was
that a very small wound
pierced the bird's right eye,
but there was no loss of flu-
id from the wound. As time
rolled on, the eagle started
taking food, the eye slowly
healed and the bird regained
the strength to be released
back into the wild.
Then, at about 5 p.m. on
March 2, a chilly heavily
overcast day, the bird was
released back into the wild
before a small crowd at the
Gazebo in Freeport's Ham-
mock Bay development. The
site was chosen because it is
not far from where the bird
was originally found.
The release itself had its
moments. The handler cast
the eagle into the air, but
the bird spread its wings

WCSB approves hires in special session


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB) met
in special session Feb. 28 ,
2012 to go over personnel
recommendations, contracts
with Tri-County Communi-
ty Council, Inc., Head Start,
construction plans, school
calendar approval, and stu-
dent expulsions.
Chairperson Dennis A.
Wallace opened the meet-
ing and went straight into
the consent portion of the
agenda. Walton County
School Superintendent Car-
lene Anderson requested
approval on a cooperative
agreement between the Tri-
County Community Coun-
cil, Head Start and the Wal-
ton County School District


to provide speech-language
therapy services to identi-
fied students in Head Start
by a speech language pa-
thologist employed by the
school district as well as
other services for prekinder-
garten students determined
eligible under the Florida
Department of Education
eligibility criteria and an ac-
tive individualize education
plan. The board approved
the request unanimously.
The board then moved to
the action agenda and per-
sonnel recommendations.
The board approved Ander-
son's request unanimously.
Personnel approved includ-
ed three new bus drivers
and the new Athletic Direc-
tor for Walton High School,


Jimmy Ray Stephens, whose
contract will start with the
District on March 15, 2012
and run until March 1, 2013.
Other employee approvals
were either transfers or ap-
provals for staff to return
from leaves of absences.
A request for the board's
approval of plans and speci-
fications prepared by Towns
Architects, as well as ap-
proval to advertise for bids
in the renovation project
of eight classrooms, where
exterior walls are separat-
ing from structural walls at
West DeFuniak Elementary
was made by Anderson. The
renovation project is to be
completed during the sum-
mer break. The board moved
unanimously to approve the


request.
The board then moved
unanimously, after some
discussion on early release
dates, to approve the 2012-
2013 school year calendar.
Anderson told the board
that many of the dates are
related to professional de-
velopment standards re-
quired for teachers and staff
by the state. Board member
Mark Davis expressed con-
cern about parents having
difficulty with the half-days.
"For many parents who don't
have day care, they have to
reserve the whole week for
just one of these half-days.
It can be a real financial
burden for some parents,
from what I have heard.
The number of days is not


really an issue compared to
the time and cost to the par-
ent."
Board member Sharon
Roberts expressed concern
that teachers were not be-
ing allowed enough plan-
ning time in the classroom
by themselves and were
having to use many of the
half-days scheduled just for
professional development.
The board then moved to
approve seven student ex-
pulsions unanimously and
then to adjourn.
The next WCSB meeting
is scheduled for March 13,
2102 at 9 a.m. For more in-
formation on agendas and
scheduled meeting as well
as minutes on past meet-
ings, go to www.walton.kl2.

WCEDA Board


considers revised land


transaction policy


By BEN GRAFTON
The board of directors
of the Walton County Eco-
nomic Development Alli-
ance (WCEDA) opened its
meeting of March 2 with a
discussion about a placing a
WCEDA insert into a future
issue of the 850 The Busi-
ness Magazine of Northwest
Florida. Managing Direc-
tor Scarlett Phaneuf said
that WCEDA was pleased
with last year's insert. Bri-
an Rowland of 850 said he
would like to get feedback
from the board about an
insert for a schedule that
would allow development
in time to publish it in the
August-September issue.
The magazine will do an
overrun of 3,000 copies of
the insert which can be used
as handouts at, conferences
and meetings.
Director Lori Kelley pre-
sented the current financial
report for WCEDA noting
that the DeFuniak Springs
City Council voted to ex-
ecute the interlocal. agree-
ment. An invoice will be
sent to DeFuniak Springs'
for supporting funding. Oth-
erwise there has been little
financial activity.
Phaneuf reported that


Public Works and Regional
Utilities are set to provide
support in work to be done
at the Walton County In-
dustrial Park in Freeport
and that Preble-Rish Engi-
neering has identified some
design changes that could
save money.
Attorney Clay Adkinson
presented a draft of the re-
vised Land Purchase/Lease
Policy for review by the
board. Significant provi-
sions include: Land can nor-
mally be leased or sold only
to businesses that are iden-
tified by the state as Quali-
fied Targeted Industries,
however with adequate
justification, the board may
'accept another applicant. A
minimum of 10 jobs, pay-
ing 115 percent of the local
average wage must be cre-
ated by the applicant in the
first phase (year) of job cre-
ation. No more land than is
required for initial business
development will be sold or
leased to a client in the first
two years of the project after
which additional land may
be addressed. The value of
the land to be sold will be
set by a certified appraiser
but the value may be dis-
counted, if justified, by the


Walton County Economic
Development Council (EDC)
on a case by case basis.
Land transaction costs will
be borne by the candidate
business, however the EDC
may elect to pay these costs,
if justified, on a case by case
basis. The maximum time
between closing and start of
vertical construction shall
be limited to 180 days. The
client cannot resell the prop-
erty to any party except the
WCEDA. A new draft will be
presented at the next meet-
ing.
Phaneuf advised the
board that the .WCEDA
website is not functioning
properly. She needs to enter
changes to information, but
the only thing she can do is
delete items from the site.
She asked for approval to is-
sue a Request for Proposal to
correct web site problems.
Board Member Greg
Kisela advised the board
that the county is seeking
a grant to cover the cost of
modifications to sewer and
water infrastructure at
Mossy Head.
Preble-Rish will be asked
to present an overview of
Mossy Head infrastructure
at the next board meeting.

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.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 8,2012

Walton county ranchers attend

Northwest Florida Beef Conference


The 27th Annual North-
west Florida Beef Confer-
ence and Trade Show was a
success for Walton County
Ranchers. Ranchers were
given tips, management
tools, and basic practices
were shown to increase prof-
it. Trade show exhibitors
were able to offer ranchers
answers and options for
their cattle herds, whether
big or small. The hands-on
forage tour was a hit for the
producers and drove home
some basic management
practices. The weather con-
ditions have been excellent
this winter to show the im-
pact a planting date has
on grazing winter, money
spent on buying and feeding
hay, and how to utilize land
to reduce spoilage.
Making the most of new
opportunities was the fo-


cus of this year's confer-
ence. High cattle prices
have ranchers excited about
the future. Basic supply and
demand effects were stated
for the high prices. The
downside to high market
.prices and the reduction of
profit margins is due to re-
cord input costs needed to
operate a herd. The good
news from Dr. Walt Prevatt,
livestock economist from
Auburn University and Ala-
bama Cooperative Exten-
sion, was that high prices
should stay around for a
little longer and money can
be made with better man-
agement practices. One
year before retiring in his
field, Dr. Prevatt, stated
that his talk on Wednesday
at the beef conference was
the first upbeat and positive
outlook he has given in his
career. Some small, cheap,


and profitable cattle manag-
ing practices were pointed
out by specialist on how to
increase the bottom line a
little bit more during these
economic times. Maybe,
just maybe, ranching can be
profitable again.
Those who missed out on
this opportunity to strength-
en their cattle operation or to
mingle with other producers
in the area should contact
their Walton County Exten-
sion Agent, Mindy at (850)
892-8172 or stop by the of-
fice at 732 N. 9th Street, De-
Funiak Springs, FL to learn
about upcoming events, ac-
tiviti'es, and programs.

Good tax, bad tax?


By BRUCE COLLIER
Things are moving right along on the bridge issue. This
week a group of county commissioners and some interested
citizens took a meeting with FDOT Secretary Ananth Pras-
ad. Despite being virtually assured that Walton County vot-
ers would reject the proposed half-cent sales tax increase,
Prasad reportedly said it was tax, toll, or next customer,
please.
As for the sales tax referendum, if you have been reading
the letters on this page, you might think those assurances
of its rejection are accurate. Though we started off pretty
much 50/50 pro and con on the issue, most of the mail lately
has been anti-tax. Nevertheless, I would stop short of con-
cluding that there is no chance a sales tax might be passed.
It's just as logical to conclude that people who favor the
tax don't write letters to the editor. Or talk to the Walton
County Taxpayers Association.
Anyway, Prasad dug in his heels on the proposed alter-
native that the $102 million in state funds be diverted
to four-laning U.S. 331. The funds have to be used for the
bridge (with the county's $75 million match), or someone
else gets them, was his response. This would seem to an-
swer my question of why, after all this time we've been told
"the money isn't there," we suddenly are offered $102 mil-
lion. Someone in Tallahassee seems to want the bridge to
go first. And, as the other Golden Rule says he who has the
gold, rules.
I'm glad the trip was made. Despite the state's position
on the $102 million, Prasad reportedly did agree to make a
written commitment to widen U.S. 331 all the way north to
1-10 if Walton County will come up with $75 million match
for the current bridge project. How we do it is, of course, our
problem.
This is still not going to please a lot of people, especially
if they oppose the tax despite its intended purpose. But if
assuming a tax burden for the bridge now secures us four-
laning to 1-10 in the future, then we should take it seri-
ously. Prasad reportedly said this could happen by 2017.
That's only five years off. Of course, I haven't heard any-
thing yet on how that project would be funded, except that
it involves another $78 million. Next controversy, please....
P.S. On an unrelated note, to the "concerned citizen"
tlfat sent me a letter this week and might be looking for,
it, I would have been happy to publish it, but you have to
include your correct name and town or city of residence.
That's how we roll at the Herald Breeze.


Editor:
I find it so very damaging, to our military and even to
America as a whole for President Obama to apologize
unnecessarily to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the
burning of two Korans by U.S. soldiers. It only makes the
situation in Afghanistan even worse.
Apparently the prisoners were writing in the books-and
relaying messages back and forth to one another. The books
were burned by mistake with the military's trash outside
Bagram Air Base, where they were spotted by local Afghans
during the burning of the Korans.
The violence that has erupted in Afghanistan in response
to this burning is so uncalled for. Riots and protests across
the country have resulted in more than 30 people killed
even more injured. At least four Americans have died in
targeted attacks since the burning. One of our own from
Niceville, Fla. was killed, because of this outbrake of vio-
lence.
Instead of the United States treating this issue as it
was-an accident, the Afghanistan leaders received apolo-
gies from Afghanistan commander Gen. John Allen, the
White House, NATO's International Security Assistance
Force and other Pentagon officials. On the other hand, this
administration had the military intentionally burn a large
number of Bibles in 2009 that had been sent to them from
an American church. They gave the reason for burning
these Bibles was for fear that if the Bibles did get out, the
Afghans might think that the U.S. government or the U.S.
military was trying to convert Muslim. It can only weaken
our military even more than what it already has. Last week
Mr. Obama wrote President Karzai a letter in which he
expressed his deep regret, and sincere apologies and prom-
ised to take appropriate steps to avoid it from happening
again.
Thousands of our men and women are in Afghanistan
fighting to maintain security and prop up President Karzai's
government. Thousands of Americans have died. Four
have been killed as a result of the protests. But, President
Obama is promising to hold accountable those responsible
for the unintentional burning of two books that prisoners
were themselves abusing in order to pass messages?
The president's letter is outrageous, and he first owes
an apology to the men and women in uniform for his fail-
ure as commander-in-chief to defend their honor. What's
worse, he may have made their jobs even more dangerous.
By apologizing he inflamed propaganda that Afghans had
been wronged and also gave our enemie forces there the
message that their violent, senseless protests were achiev-
ing something. It .might come as a surprise to the presi-
dent, but not all of his apologies win people over. Most of
the time, they just make him look weak, don't you think?
For all this apologizing the president was rewarded with
a Nobel Peace Prize, but his actions has made America less
secure.
There's no doubt that President Obama has a lot to apol-
ogize for. But before he continues downgrading the United
States before all these arrogant, evil leaders, he should
start by apologizing to the American people. ,

LETTER TO THE3EDITOR


Editor:
This is something that has weighed heavy on my heart
for a long time. After reading an email I received yesterday
I feel I need to get it off my chest.
In no way shape or form do I mean any disrespect to
Sgt. Timothy Padgett's family. He deserves every bit of the
recognition he is receiving for his service and sacrifice to
this country. I too was there on the side of Hwy. 90 wait-
ing for the helicopter that was bringing Timothy home so
I could pay my respects. I remember his Mom smiling and
waving at me as their car passed.
I read in my email about the $1.4 million state grant
Walton County received to build Padgett Park in Timo-
thy's honor. That news brought gladness and sadness to
my heart. Just as it did while standing on the side of Hwy.
90 that day. Where was my brothers parade? Where was
the ceremony unveiling my brothers beautiful portrait?


Where was my brothers park or monument in Walton Coun-
ty? My brother, Staff Sgt. Raymond Olen Spencer Jr. was
a lifelong resident of Walton: County, he loved God and his
country. He died in a plane crash shortly after takeoff at
Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage Alaska along with
23 other soldiers. Apparently his service and sacrifice for
this country meant nothing to Walton County.
If anyone would like to read about the crash ofAWAC Yuk-
la 27 please google it and there are several videos on You-
Tube also.
I ask you, does one soldiers sacrifice mean more than an-
other?


Sincerely,
Cheryl Marlow


LETE O HEEITOR


Editor:
It is'absolutely maddening just how much we are taxed in
the state of Florida, and particularly.here in Walton Coun-
ty. We are paying 7 percent sales tax on non-food items,
much higher taxes on gas and cigarettes, and excessively
high property taxes as well. These extreme taxes are noth-
ing short of appalling! Why do we allow such an assault
on our wallets? With tax revenues like these, one would
think our county would be awash with cash. But, instead,
our county government -wants to take on more debt and
raise our taxes. How much more of this ever increasing,
never enough taxation are the citizens of our county going
to take before we scream out "enough!" Our leaders are in
love with taxation the way America loves apple pie. So, it is
no surprise that the people, as well as the businesses they
work for, are struggling to make ends meet these days. The


working men and women don't stand a chance while our
county officials and bureaucrats spend, borrow, and tax
like drunken sailors. Here is one good solution: Let us
send a strong message to our county commissioners and
public officials to "reduce spending, no borrowing, and no
more taxes" by sending them back into the private sector
to get real jobs that are funded by real employers who can
only employ real people if their businesses remain viable
in the real world. Be on notice, we also know that talk is
cheap! And if the next set of bureaucrats don't get the
message, we need to keep looking till we find others that
do. Only then, I think, will they understand what we are
really talking about.

I ETE TSHEEITOR


Editor:
We need to become better educated on how economics in
the 21st century works. Many of us took economic courses
that taught us about "supply and demand." Well, "supply
and demand" economics no longer applies to the price of
oil.
There is a new brand of oil trader who neither purchases
nor sells the actual oil. These billionaire individuals and,
companies "buy low and sell high." The problem is the game
is rigged in their favor. These greedy people buy oil on the
commodities market then bid up the price of oil and sell at
a tremendous profit. This is what is really driving up the
price of oil. They also are the ones pushing for more drill-
ing which would enable them to bid up the oil futures even
more.


In the last 10 years, the share of the oil market controlled
by investors and speculators has more than doubled aided
by broken-down policies from a Congress dominated by par-
tisanship and extremism. In December 2000, Congress de-
regulated oil traders thus compounding the problem.
Senator Bill Nelson is cosponsoring a bill that states no
single investor could hold more than 5 percent of the oil fu-
tures market, thereby greatly reducing speculators ability
to manipulate prices. We should get behind Senator Nel-
son on this and not be fooled by those who tell us that the
ONLY solution to the oil crises is more drilling.

LEBTSTERTO THEEDITOR


Editor:
I think I may have figured out a way for Walton County's
BCC (the fab five) to generate the required revenue to pay
for our new bridge. It's a new reality television series that
would chronicle the day to day shenanigans of the Wal-
ton County BCC. Think about it, neither the Kardashian
tramps not the Jersey shore gang can hold a candle to our
own cast of political hucksters. We'll give them nicknames
like "Boat-ramp Brannon," Sur-tax Sara, and "the Waste
Manger." Every week the viewers would be treated to our
latest scandal de jour (we've always got one). I know it would
make us the laughing stock of the entire nation, but just
think of the cash we would have at our disposal. The "fab


five" would become national celebrities and tourist would
to Walton county for autograph signing. We could sell tee
shirts with "My parents vacationed in Walton County and
all I got was this stupid tax" I'm telling you this thing is a
real cash cow. Think about it, if we must continue to sail
with this "ship of fools," we might a well figure out a way to
profit off them. Isn't that what they've been doing to us? We
might even figure out a way to put a sur-tax on our show.
Now, all we need is a name for our show. How about, "Tax
men" or "The Wizards of Walton"?
Sincerely
J.W. McBroom

Editor:
Senate Bill 998 by Greg Evers, recklessly endangers
gun owners. It seeks to arm veterans, but at the same time
criminalizes shooting on your own private property. Let me
give you a definition of recklessness. It is seeking to arm
more people to carry concealed firearms in a area already
devoid of public shooting ranges. In his district, there are no
public ranges where people can receive training and prac-


tice marksmanship skills they need. Since he now wants
to criminalise residential home range shooters, Evers prac-
tically forces you to use expensive private indoor ranges.
With 20,000 gun law already on the books, the last thing we
need is more liberal, knee jerk, gun control.

Editor,
1. Everyone living today knows the full truth unless they
have fully chosen the path of stubborness, self first and sin.
In the later case the verse from the King James version
of the Bible applies. Ref. Acts 28:27 "for the heart of this
people is waxed gross, and their eyes they have closed, lest
they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,
and should be converted and I should hear them."
2. Our God is a God of free choice for all, abundance and
prosperity. He made the earth, heavens and everyone. He


knows everything even our thoughts. If we have the mind of
Christ we will easily know whether the thought came from
above or below or self, if we feel rushed to make a compro-
mising decision not in line with God's word we will know
the source is not from god, but from Satan.
3. Let's all pray for each other, our nation, Israel and the
world while we still have life and time. We all need God's
blessings and favor.

Gulf Power linemen to help introduce


I Lineworker Appreciation Day in state


Four Gulf Power linemen
took part in the introduc-
tion of a Florida House of
Representatives resolution
to honor lineworkers across
the state. The bill was in-
troduced Friday, March 2 in
Tallahassee.
The four include Clint
Floyd, Mark Truitt and Rob-
ert Duke, all Line Techs in
the Pensacola area, and Da-
vid Cope, the Planning and
Construction Team Leader
in Panama City Beach.
They will be among more
than 70 lineworkers across
the state who will be on the


floor of the House of Repre-
sentatives in Tallahassee,
where Rep. Seth McKeel (R-
Lakeland) will introduce a
resolution making Aug. 26,
2012 "Lineworker Appre-
ciation Day" in the state of
Florida.
"Our lineworkers are
some of the most visible
faces of Gulf Power in pro-
viding reliable electric ser-
vice to our customers across
Northwest Florida," said
Gordon Paulus, Gulf Power
spokesperson. "We appre-
ciate their work every day
and we applaud and sup-


port this recognition across
the state."
The motivation for Lin-
eworker Appreciation Day
comes from TracyMoore, wife
of former Lakeland Electric
lineman Marc Moore; who
died while working on Aug.
26, 2002. The resolution will
honor thousands of men and
women who risk their lives
every day, ensuring the re-
liable delivery of electricity
throughout the state.
Nationwide, more than
114,000 lineworkers main-
tain the country's 5 million
miles of transmission and


distribution lines and also
pitch in to help fellow util-
ity workers in the wake of
natural disasters.

Gulf Power Company is
an investor-owned electric
utility with all of its com-
mon stock owned by Atlan-
ta-based Southern Compa-
ny. Gulf Power serves more
than 435,000 customers in
eight counties throughout
Northwest Florida. Visit
online at GulfPower.com or

page, "Gulf Power Compa-
ny."

DeFuniak Springs office open house March 30


From JULIE HURST, CEO
For months I have been
talking about our center
at 256 U.S. 90 in Defuniak
Springs. Today I can tell
you, it is a reality, the first
milestone in our journey to
save the lives of child abuse
victims. We feel blessed
to be a part of a wonderful
community and thank you
for welcoming us with open
arms.
There is no doubt our ser-
vices are needed. In 2010,
the center saw 88 child
abuse victims in Walton
County and in 2011, the
Center provided services to
228 children, a 40-percent
increase. These numbers
represent the commitment
of law enforcement, Depart-


ment of Children and Fami-
lies, the Child Protection
Team, the State Attorney's
office and center advocates
and therapists to improve
the lives of children while
holding offenders account-
able.
We would like to invite
the community to our open
house and ribbon cutting
ceremony on Friday, March
30. We will hold the ribbon
cutting ceremony at 12 p.m.
and follow with an open
house with refreshments
through 6 p.m. We hope
you will take the opportu-
nity to join us. Come and
learn of our vision. Join us
on our journey. Be a part of
the milestones ahead. There
will be many and the win-


ners will be the children in
the community.
There are still a few items
we need to complete our cen-
ter. If you would like to help
us "warm" our new home, we
could use some of the follow-
ing items shelf for a DVD
player, DVD player, three
floor lamps, 4-foot credenza,
storage shelf unit, small mi-
crowave table, new chairs
and large toy basket for liv-
ing room area, new toilets
and sinks, tile for bathroom
floors, digital thermostat,
pictures for walls, donation
for a subscription for cable,
flat screen television set, a
16 cubic foot refrigerator,
and a shredder. If you can-
not donate the item, contri-
butions can be designated


to help purchase items. We
thank those who have al-
ready contributed and we
hope others will choose to
be a part of the team to save
the lives of child abuse vic-


tims.
If you would like to help,
volunteer or learn more
about our critical mission,
please contact our office at

abuse, please call the Flor-

assistance yesterday to a
62-year-old Alabama man
who collapsed while partici-
pating in the annual Sea-

"These law enforcement

ed for their professional-


ism, care and cooperation,"
said Sheriff Michael A. Ad-
kinson, Jr. "Their training
and quick response aided in
saving the life of a Walton
County visitor."
Hall was "flagged down"
at approximately 9 a.m. by
a citizen who'stated that a
man collapsed.
Hall determined that the
man had no pulse and im-
mediately administered an


Automated External Defi-
brillator (AED) after Florida

Mike Duffey administered
CPR.
The revived man was

Shelter House offering weekly

support groups in-Walton County


Shelter House, the do-

Springs office every Tues-
day from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The
support group is free to at-
tend and no pre-registration
is necessary.
A Shelter House advocate
facilitates the group where
topics can include safety
planning, building self-es-
teem, evaluating relation-
ships, power and control,
boundary setting, nurturing
children and teens, handling
the transition and self-care.
"Support groups provide
a safe environment for wom-
en to talk about the abuse
they have experienced,"
said Shelter House Execu-
tive Director Michelle Sper-
zel. "For many women, it is
the first place they ever say
out loud that they have been
abused. Being able to talk to
others who are in similar
situations and having an
advocate on hand to provide
information on available re-
sources gives participants
the tools and strength they
need to get out of an abusive
relationship."

Commissioners deal with





golf carts, dunes, Amtrak


By DOTTY NIST

The Feb. 28 Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) regular meet-
ing dealt with a variety of
topics and ended with a con-
frontation.
The meeting took place at
the Walton County Court-
house in DeFuniak Springs.
Walton County Adminis-
trator Greg Kisela present-
ed a request from the city
of DeFuniak Springs for the
BCC to give their thoughts
on allowing golf carts/low
speed vehicles on county
roads within the city limits.
Kisela said roads to be
affected would be Bay Av-
enue, 2nd Street, Bruce Av-
enue, 19th Street, Bob Sikes
Road, and Walton Road. He
expressed concern about
allowing these vehicles on
Bob Sikes Road and Walton
Road due to traffic volume
and the potential for acci-
dents.
"A low-speed vehicle isn't
a golf cart," County Com-
mission Chairman Scott
Brannon observed.
Kisela agreed, saying that
there are special require-
ments to drive a low-speed
vehicle (LSV) and that these
vehicles must be equipped
to certain specifications to
be allowed on the road. He
added that LSVs may le-
gally be driven on any road
with a speed limit less than
35 miles per hour.
District 5 Commissioner
Cecilia Jones commented
that she would be concerned
that children might be driv-
ing the vehicles.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander said it was
her understanding that it
had been golf carts and not
LSVs that the city was con-


sidering allowing on these
roads.
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen asked
Kisela to obtain more infor-
mation on the proposal,rand
he agreed to do so.
Speaking of vehicles,
soon afterward Kitty Whit-
ney, president/CEO for the
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce, told the commis-
sioners that the chamber
wants to "be the vehicle"
for information regarding
the planned April 24 ref-
erendum at which county
voters will consider raising
the sales tax to help fund
the widening of the U.S. 331
bay bridge.
Whitney explained that
the Walton Area Chamber
of Commerce would never
advocate for or against a
referendum item, but that
the chamber wants to make
sure that the voters are edu-
cated on the issue and have
all the facts they need to
make a decision.
She said chamber staff
are "digging deep" to get the
facts and are preparing a
presentation on the bridge
issue. The presentation has
been scheduled at 27 club
meetings and other gather-
ings, Whitney said, adding
that she will be happy to
come to any event to provide
the information if request-
ed.
Whitney also addressed
an e-mail that had come to
light recently with an ar-
ticle in-an area newspaper.
Apparently sent from Bran-
non to South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) Executive ,Director
Dawn Moliterno, the e-mail
was interpreted by some as
Brannon telling Moliterno
that he would call Whitney,

fectly fine," with both Bran-
non and Moliterno.
In other action, after a re-
quest from Jon Ervin of the
TDC, the officials approved a
$36,100 low bidl from Utility
Solutions for a reconstruc-
tion project along approxi-
mately 1,100 linear foot of
beach dune at the Miramar
Regional Beach Access. Ac-
cording to the request, the
current dune at the access
is at a 2:1 slope and is dif-
ficult to maintain. The dune
is to be reconstructed to a
4:1 slope by means of grad-
ing. An irrigation and sprin-
kler system will be installed
to ensure the survivability
of sea oats to be planted as
part of the project to help
with stabilization. Ervin
added that sand fencing will
also be installed per state
guidelines. Funding for the
project is included in the
TDC budget.
Also at Ervin's request,
the TDC's current contract
with the South Walton
Turtle Watch for sea turtle
monitoring on the beaches
was renewed for an addi-
tional year.
Vivian Shamel of Walton
County Planning presented
a proposed agreement be-
tween the county, Regional
Utilities, and the Grayton
Beach Neighborhood As-
sociation for the decoration
of the fence at the Regional
Utilities lift station in Gray-
ton Beach with donated art
work, with the art work to
be maintained by the asso-
ciation.'
The agreement was ap-
proved following a motion
by Jones.
Following a request and
motion by Comander, the
BCC joined in a resolution
calling for the restoration
of Amtrak's Sunset Limited
passenger service and for
the expansion of the num-
ber of stops on its route in
northwest and central Flor-
ida. This was a joint resolu-
tion of the Northwest Flori-
da League of Cities and the
Suwannee River League of
Cities.
In 2005, damage from


Hurricane Katrina had
stopped trains from run-
ning along Amtrak's route
between New Orleans and
North Florida. Although
the damaged lines are now
repaired, and the route is
being utilitized for freight,
Sunset Limited passenger
service has not resumed.
Comander said it was
her hope that the passenger
service would be renewed
and that a "whistle stop" in
DeFuniak Springs could be
added to the route.
Anita Page of the South
Walton Community Coun-
cil expressed concern about
the lack of public hearings
in connection with plans
for the new TDC facility
on Point Washington State
Forest property. She noted
that there have been conver-
sations between the county
and the Florida Forest Ser-
vice on the plan---and that
legislators have even been
asked to get involved with
shepherding the process, yet
there has "not been one pub-
lic hearing on this project."
Brannon responded that
this had been the purpose
of the special TDC meeting
that had been scheduled
for Feb. 24 but had been
cancelled. The meeting had
been cancelled due to Dawn
Moliterno being hospital-
ized during the week of the
planned meeting. She was
released the following week.
Brannon said the plan
had been scheduled to come
before the TDC at that
meeting---and that it would
later come before a session
of the BCC. "This was a pub-
lic process," he said. The ap-
proval process will end up
with the state government,
he added.
Page maintained that the
way the item had been de-
scribed ii' the TDC special
meeting announcement told
the public very little about
the nature of what was to be
considered.
"We can do better...I take
responsibility," Brannon re-
sponded.
"I think you need to meet
(individually) with each
commissioner here," Pridgen
told Page. "I think it would
benefit the whole board," he
said.
"We'll slow down and
get a game plan," Brannon
pledged regarding the proj-

as of Feb. 29 ,2012. Anyone
with any information on
these fugitives or any other
crime is asked to call Crime
Stoppers at 1-866-718-TIPS
(8477). Callers do not have

ton County, Fla.


ect.
Alan Osborne spoke to
the need for public hearings
on the project to determine
whether the community
wants to see the resources
expended that would be nec-
essary to build the new fa-
cility.
Susan Paladini asked
that an alternate location be
selected for the facility. She
argued the one being consid-
ered would make prescribed
burns in the state forest "a
nightmare." The parcel in
question is at the south end
of U.S. 331 at its intersec-
tion with U.S. 98. Paladini
suggested that one of two
10-acre parcels along U.S.
98, listed on the Florida For-
est Service web site as sur-
plus, be considered instead.
The plan for the new fa-
cility and a draft agreement
with the Florida Forest Ser-
vice have been placed on the
agenda for the 9 a.m. March
13 TDC meeting, which is
to take place at the TDC of-
fice.
Addressing the commis-
sioners, Don Riley of the
Walton County Taxpay-
ers' Association said he
had gathered from what he
had heard in the commu-
nity that there was a move
afoot within the BCC to fire
County Administrator Greg
Kisela. He urged the com-
missioners to inform them-
selves thoroughly on the
matter before considering
. any such action.
Riley, who said he had
been going through e-mails
that were part of a public re-
cords request, distributed to
the commissioners a paper
bearing what appeared to be
a copy of records of a Sept.


18, 2011, e-mail conversa-
tion between Brannon and
Walton County Sheriff Mike
Adkinson, on the topic of an
article in an area newspaper
that had raised questions
about the county's purchase
of property at Chat Holley
Road and U.S. 331.
Brannon's comments
displayed on the document
Were critical of Lloyd Blue,
seller of the parcel, as a
person, and observed that
George Ralph Miller, who
oversaw the, purchase for
the county as then-special
legal counsel, had trusted
Blue, who he had believed to
be his friend, in the transac-
tion,'to Miller's detriment.
Brannon reacted to Ri-
ley's presentation as "basi-
cally hearsay." Kisela made
no comment. Brannon soon
adjourned the meeting.
After the meeting, Ri-
ley said that in his opinion
Brannon was trying to "pin
the Chat Holley mess" on
Kisela and have him dis-
missed from his position.
The Chat Holley pur-
chase had taken place in Oc-
tober 2010, and Kisela had
not been hired by the county
until June 2011. However,
alleged irregularities with
the purchase had not come
to the attention of the gen-
eral public until September
2011, almost a year after
the transaction. The trans-
action is now the subject of
a lawsuit filed by Suzanne
Harris in November 2011,
which is pending in Walton
County Circuit Court.
Action at the meeting re-
garding the planned April
24 referendum on a sales
tax increase is reported in a
separate article.


Traffic stop leads


to meth arrest


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) last week
arrested Teresa Ford, 44, of
Crestview, on methamphet-
amine drug charges.
The investigation began
March 1 after a WCSO Ca-
nine Unit Deputy and Nero,
a certified narcotics detec-
tion canine, conducted a
traffic stop near the inter-
section of U.S. 90 and High-
way 1087.
A probable cause search
of the vehicle was conducted
after Nero alerted the dep-
uty of the possible presence
of illegal narcotics in the
vehicle. During the search,
the deputy recovered what
appeared to be tools and


ingredients commonly used
to manufacture metham-
phetamine. The deputy also
recovered a plastic bag con-
taining a substance which
field-tested positive for
methamphetamine.
Ford, the passenger of
the vehicle, was charged
with one count possession of
methamphetamine with in-
tent to sell, manufacture or
deliver drugs, a second-de-
gree felony; one count of pos-
session of precursor chemi-
cals, a second-degree felony;
and one count of possession
of drug paraphernalia, a
first-degree misdemeanor.
She was booked into the
Walton County Jail.

Mossy Head Water Works, Inc.
2011 Quality Water Report

We are pleased to announce that our drinking water
meets all federal and state requirements.

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the
excellent water and services we have delivered to you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been, to provide to
you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from 3 wells. The wells.draw from the
Floridan Aquifer. Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection
purposes.
In 2011 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of
the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells. The assessment results are available on
the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Tom Terrell, President, Mossy
Head Water Works, Inc. at (850) 892-6154. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If
you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each
month at our office building at 7 p.m.
Tips for Saving Water
* Don't over water your lawn. Only water every three to five days in the summer and 10 to 14 days in the winter.
* To prevent water loss from evaporation, don't water your lawn during the hottest part of the day or when it is windy.
* Only run the dishwasher and clothes washer when they are fully loaded.
* Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running water over it.
* When washing dishes by hand, use two basins one for washing and one for rinsing rather than let the water run.
* Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and driveways.
* If you have a swimming pool, get a cover. You'll cut the loss of water by evaporation by 90 percent.
* Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste about 2,000 gallons of water each year. Leaky toilets
can waste as much as 200 gallons each day.
Mossy Head Water Works Inc. routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State
laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this report are from the
most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain
contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are
set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a
water system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR).
The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations
of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with
their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum residential disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is
convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residential disinfectant level goal or MRDLG The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is
no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial
contaminants.
"ND"means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the
water sample.; i.
Parts per mjllioni (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the
water sample.-
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.
Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Mossy
Head Water works is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in
plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure
by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead
in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you
can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs,
and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human
activity.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-
compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone
organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care
providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and
other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at the Mossy Head Water Works Inc. work daily to insure that our customers are provided with the highest quality
drinking water available. We encourage all members to become actively involved in the business of your system.

the Hammock Bay Lake
Club House, Joel Glenn
of Glary-Glenn Funer-
al Home addressed the
crowd of about 50 cham-
ber members and guests.
According to Glenn, the
funeral home has been in
business in Walton Coun-
ty since 1932 and it is
their honor and privilege
to serve the community.
Cremation services are
available now that were
not available in the past.
Cremation jewelry con-
taining bits of cremains
is now available and may
be kept as keepsakes. He
said, "...some people like
it, but others, think that
it is a little bit different
and don't want any part
of it." He cited, as an ex-
ample, the daughter of a
recently deceased father
who chose a cremation
jewelry cross so that her
father could walk down
the isle with her at her
wedding which would
take place a few weeks
later. Glenn also talked
about other changes: In
DeFuniak Springs over
the last couple of years, a
new building and a park-
ing lot have been added
and a work in progress is
to add a crematorium in
DeFuniak Springs or in
Freeport.
Beth Jones, a Realtor
with the Hammock Bay
development welcomed
the group to the facil-
ity and told them that
Hammock Bay has many
things to offer. She said,
"There are homes that
may be bought from the
$130s up to those that
cost as much as you care
to spend." There is a club
house which can be re-
served for parties and
there are meeting rooms
and a caterer's kitchen
which can handle a wed-
ding reception or a simi-


lar event. The Freeport
Regional Sports complex
with all kinds of ball fields
is located adjacent to the
development.
Donna Free, LPN,
with the Walton Coun-
ty Health Department
told the group that a lot
of things were going on
within the department
including an effort now
underway to change the
image of the department.
Primary care is now avail-
able for people who are
not insured or who are
under-insured. Immuni-
zation services are open
to everyone.
Holly Holt, administra-
tor for both the Walton
County and Holmes Coun-
ty Health Departments,
informed the group that
she hopes a permanent
administrator for Hol-
mes can be found for this
would allow her to spend
all of her time in Walton.
Holt says she is very pas-
sionate about health care
and about things going on
in the community.
.Holt distributed 2010
statistical summaries
comparing indicators for
Walton County to those
for Okaloosa, Holmes
and Santa Rosa coun-
ties and for the state of


Florida. The data shows
that in Walton in 2010
there were two neonatal
deaths; there were 38
births per 1,000 females
in the 15 19 age group;
there are only about 13
percent of low income
persons who have access
to restorative and pre-
ventive dental care; and
all of these things need
to be improved. Walton
County Health Depart-
ment has opened up a
dental clinic and right
now the majority of per-
sons being treated. there
are children. Holt believes
that doing 30 minutes of
physical activity per day
reduces a lot of the risk
factors that are reflected
and that healthy parents
have healthy children.
Kitty Whitney, RN
and president/CEO of the
Walton Area Chamber,
became the "Boot Camp
Trainer" with a big be-
lief in a way of life for
the group. She led the
them through a series
of questions designed to
demonstrate things peo-
ple do that detract from
a healthy lifestyle and
she urged those present
to make the choices to
achieve a healthier life-
style.

By REID TUCKER

What started 25 years
ago as a one-time get-to-
gether between two friends
expanded to include about
10 former coworkers who
now, a quarter-century lat-
er, still meet for breakfast
every Tuesday.

The group, composed of
DeFuniak Springs women
with ages ranging from 65
to 89, all worked in bank-
ing for many years before
retiring. Though they all re-
mained in touch, the women
did not meet weekly until
the death of the husband of
the group's founding mem-
ber (and de facto spokes-
woman) Mildred Boland 25
years ago. Boland and her
close friend Nell Parish,
who also lost her husband
around that time, began get-
ting together for breakfast
as a way of supporting each
other in their time of loss.
It wasn't long before more
old banking friends, some of
whom worked together for
35 years, began joining Bo-
land and Parish and soon
the "Retired Old Bankers
Out-of-Balance Club" or Ro-


bob Club, as it was named
by Frances Richards, start-
ed meeting every Tuesday.
The group first met at the
Hardees on U.S. 331 South
but moved to Burger King
after the other restaurant
closed.
"We've been having it
our way ever since," Boland
quipped, quoting Burger
King's famous tagline with a
wry smile. "We jump on the
news and solve the world's
prQblems or try to. We don't
complaiii but we do laugh a
lot. We support each other
in hard times."
The core members of the
Robob Club include Boland,
Parish, Richards, Ann Bra-
zile, Claudia Huber, Martha
Leach, Hazel Rachels and
Jan Adams, the most recent
edition to the group. The la-
dies chat about everything
from politics and current
events to the good old days
when they all worked at the
First National Bank (which
went through several name
changes before finally be-
coming known as today's
SunTrust Bank) over coffee
and biscuits. Boland jokingly
said it sometimes takes the
whole group to remember


all the details of how a story
really happened but that too
is part of the fun of seeing
so many of her friends on a
weekly basis.
The Robob Club members
are better at remembering
the details than they give
themselves credit for being.
Each one has a collection
of favorite stories and they
seemingly never run out of
humorous anecdotes to re-
count with the immediacy of
a water-cooler chat. It isn't
long and everyone tries to
outdo the other's story, try-
ing to see who can get the
most and biggest laughs.
They remember the un-
usual names of some cus-
tomers, some of whpm came
through the bank's drive-
thru window on farm trac-
tors; they remember taking
hairdryers to stacks of cash
after a fire burned the bank
down in 1972 and carrying
bags of money across the
street with a police escort.
They remember totaling ever
day's ending balance to the
penny on adding machines;
they remember bringing
their children to the bank
and putting them to work
in the summer time. They


remember their boss, Henry
Elliot, checking up on them
if they were sick, though
they jokingly claimed to be
unsure if it was entirely out
of concern for their health
or to make sure no one was
skipping out of work.
The lasting impression
one gets from listening to
this tight-knit group of peo-
ple reminisce about the good
times and the trying times
they all shared together
is a sense of rich continu-
ity. These are people who
never stopped being friends
despite the long passage of
years. Every Tuesday they
reaffirm that friendship and
Boland said the Robob Club
will continue to do just that
as long as there is a restau-
rant that serves breakfast.
"We formed a bond dur-
ing our working days that is
very special to us and is still
strong today," she said. "We
raised our children together.
We spent the holidays with
each other and still do. We
really do care about each
other and love each other. I
don't think you can work to-
gether with someone for as
long as we did and not love
each other."

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,

I have only been married
for six months, but I don't
know how much longer I can
handle my in-laws, most es-
pecially my mother-in-law.
My wife and I hadan idyl-
lic courtship. Her family was
wonderful to me up until the
day after the wedding. Soon,
my mother-in-law started
calling and telling my wife,
her daughter how and what
I should do where every lit-
tle thing was concerned. It's
making me nuts. From how
I mow the grass to where I
took my wife to dinner last
week is wrong or could be
better, according to her.
I'm seriously starting to
hope I get to see something
that would place me in the
witness protection program,
so I can pack up and leave
and take my wife with me.
Do you have any advice that
might help me?

Hen-pecked from heck and
back

Dear Hen-pecked,
Well, you bought the cow
and got the farm. Not totally
unusual. I bet if you really
think back long and hard,
there might have been some
signs there that your MIL
might be a little overbear-
ing or busy, but neverthe-
less, you are here now and
let's see what you can do.
First, and I think you
might have already done
this, talk to your wife and ex-
plain to her how this makes
you feel. When we are raised
in our family, we often get
the idea what we do is the
norm, when to someone
else, it is not. An example
would be my friend's fam-
ily. They're loud, and they
yell at each other a lot. In
my family, if someone raises
their voice they are angry,
in my friend's, it's the norm,
it's just conversation. Each
has their own dynamic.
So, while your wife may be
used to this intrusion from
her mom, or if it was going
on behind the scenes before


ROBOB Club breakfast The "Retired Old Bankers Out-of-Balance Club" meets every Tuesday morning for breakfast
and has done so for 25 years. The core group is composed of Frances Richards, Jan Adams, Ann Brazile, Claudia Huber,
Nell Parish, Martha Leach, Mildred Boland and Hazel Rachels (not pictured). (Photo by Reid Tucker)




Art League to host workshop


you got married, and you
were just not aware of it,
you have to tell your wife it
makes you uncomfortable.
Secondly, when you mar-
ry someone, you do marry
their family. Even if the
good book says that we leave
our families to cleave to the
one we marry and start our
own family, it doesn't al-
ways work that way. Most
are a package deal. You got
the package.
Bottom line: If you love
your wife, learn to turn a
deaf ear to her mom, or at
least understand that may-
be this is the way she com-
municates.
You hear nagging,, she just
thinks she is making small
talk. I don't think you.really
want to run away, you just
want things to be perfect,
well, good luck with that.
Because, nothing is perfect,
and we can't change people,
but we can change the way
we react or how we let'them
get to us. Learn to overcome
this and let it roll off your
back, or your marriage will
be in trouble, and you have
the power to stop that, but
not to keep the MIL quiet.
Capisce? Good luck and God
bless.

a question? Want to vent

Area students win CHELCO

Youth Tour competition


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 8,2012


Head, Freeport High School.
Head was runner-up in the


FECA competition and will
go to Washington, D.C.,


with the group in the event
the winner can't go.


Four high school juniors
are on their way to. the na-
tion's capital when school
is out. The four are winners
in CHELCO's annual Youth
Tour competition, which
took place Feb. 21 at CHEL-
CO's Operations Center in
DeFuniak Springs.

sent CHELCO in Washing-
ton, D.C., during the na-

chosen as alternates.
When in Washington,
CHELCO's four represen-

proximately 25 other Flor-
ida students, representing
eight co-ops throughout the
state. Florida's group will
be part of a delegation that
numbers about 1,500 high
school juniors, representing
46 states.
In CHELCO's competi-
tion. winners were chosen
from a field of 20 represen-

one home-schooled student.
A panel of three judges
quizzed the students on
CHELCO facts and the his-

RCH 8, 2012





THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 8,2012


I


When my wife and I
carried our newborn child
through the sliding glass
doors of the maternity unit,
we were not given an in-
structional manual. No type
of handbook accompanied
the second or the third child
either. Like all parents, we
were directed to the exit sign
clutching our new wrapped-
in-blue bundle, with little
more than a slap on the rear
end, like a coach sending in
his second-string substitu-
tions.
We were those kids with
plenty of eagerness to play
the game, but not a lot of
knowledge about the play-
book. We simply were not
prepared for or coached up
on every possible situation
that would arise in our fam-
ily-building career.
Case in point: Our three


boys were playing football
in the backyard this winter
when one of them called to
me with words I could have
never anticipated. Casu-
ally, as if he were making
a weather observation, he
said, "Dad...the dog is on
the roof." I exploded onto
the upper deck to discover
that my son was alarmingly
correct.
Our new little Shih Tzu
- Toby had inexplicably
crawled beneath the deck
railing and was fifteen feet
across a pitched metal roof,
two stories off the ground. I
was horrified. My dear wife
was worse, deranged with
panic, and wanted to crawl
over the rail to rescue the
pup. I understood that if this
disaster were not averted, I
did not have enough pasto-
ral skill, fatherly wisdom,


Valium, or hard liquor to as-
suage the suffering.
So, with the boys in place
below, ready to exercise
their burgeoning football
catching skills, my hand
firming holding my wife by
the belt loops at the railing,
and aiming every prayer
at heaven I could muster, I
gently called, "Toby... come
here, boy." He loped over to
me as if it were a day at the
dog park, and tragedy was
dodged (If someone ever
writes that parenting hand-
book please include this
nutty story as "Exhibit A" in
what can go unpredictably
wrong around the house).
But as crazy as this story
is, here is the craziest thing
of all: While our entire fam-
ily mobilized to protect and
save this precious little dog,
Toby was completely, total-


ly, and blissfully unaware
of our efforts. Hands were
shaking. Tears were form-
ing. Railings were being
scaled. Catch nets were be-
ing weaved. Meanwhile, he
was sniffing leaves, enjoying
the view, and inspecting the
strange metal floor beneath
his feet.
Toby doesn't understand
this, but he doesn't have
to; he simply lives a dog's
life in the loving arms of
those who always look out
for him. Sometimes I per-
ceive God working the same
way. I sense him hanging
in the atmosphere around
us; ethereal, intangible, but
very real just the same.
Occasionally, I glimpse
him lurking within and
brooding over the circum-
stances of life, sometimes
gently calling, but most of


the time just ready to catch
us when we fall; or to save
us from ourselves when
we've crawled too far out on
the ledge.
We are like a baby rest-
ing in her mother's arms,
completely incapable of
communicating the affec-
tion that surrounds us, but
just as absolutely aware
of it. We are like a teenage
son who fights his father at
every turn, kicking against
every boundary, but deep
inside we know that our
father loves us no matter
what even when we don't
understand and we are
grateful to have someone on
our side.
We are like a driver,
blissfully driving down the
highway, perfectly ignorant
of the fact that the red lights
that stop us or the wait to

get that morning cup of cof-
. fee, have actually saved us
from danger somewhere
else down the road. We are
like a dog on the roof, even
while our well-being is in
jeopardy, we are enfolded by
a protecting love.
Yes, I believe there is a
mysterious, unseen, hover-
ing God in the universe that
we cannot always under-
stand, see, or otherwise tan-
gibly perceive. But we know
he is there. His enveloping
love for us is very real, and
yes, it is very good.

Purim is a Jewish holiday
that is a celebration of God's
deliverance from anniala-
tion in the time of Esther the
queen of Persia. Persia was
the land now called Iran,
and man in high govern-
ment position conspired to
kill all the Jews in the King-
dom. Esther was the queen,
and though she was a Jew it
was not publicly known. She
asked the Jews to pray and
fast for her and she would
request the king to reverse
the ruling that her people
would be preserved from
death. The king could not
change the law or decree but






k owtoll0. -meThe

ELor sa ad


instead ruled that the Jews
could defend themselves. So
they were saved and made it
a holiday called purim.
Iran is a country with a
lot of oil, and it sells oil to
China and Russia. The cur-
rent president of Iran has
stated an intention of de-
stroying Israel, and is appar-
ently working on developing
nuclear weapons. One Jew-
ish man said, when some-
one tells you they are going
to kill you, believe them! So
once again a threat of an-
nialation against the Jew-
ish people is coming from


the land of ancient Persia,
and because of oil interests,
possibly China and Rus-
sia would back Iran. What
else could happen is a big
question, but is something
to think about especially at
this time of Purim. Thurs-
day March 8, 2012, will be
Purim, and millions of Jews
will read the book of Esther,
and celebrate life, and that
God saved them long ago,
and hoping and praying,
that God will save them once
more from Iran, the ancient
land of Persia.
My prayers join with
theirs.

Fifth annual


Chautauqua


5K Fun Run a success


Submitted by
CHRIS GUZOWSKI
Feb. 25 dawned cold and
breezy for the DeFuniak
Springs Woman's Club's
fifth annual Chautauqua 5K
Fun Run/Walk sponsored by
Dr Michael O'Donnell, Gulf
Coast Insulation and Gulf
Power. However, it did not
deter the hardy runners and
walkers who gathered to
compete. Most of the par-
ticipants were from the local
area although some came
from as far away as Michi-
gan and Oklahoma.
When the last of the 62,
participants were clocked,
Reid Tucker of DeFuniak
Springs was the fastest
male runner with a time
of 19 minutes 13 seconds.
The overall fastest female
runner was Christine Tene-
wicz of Freeport whose time
was 24 minutes 51 seconds.
Prizes were also awarded to
walkers. The fastest male
walker was Jimmy Jackson
of Marianna with a time of
40 minutes and 41 seconds.
Hope Burgess of DeFuniak
Springs was the fastest fe-
male walker. Her time was
43 minutes 16 seconds. All
were presented with a tro-
phy and cash prize. Gold,
Silver and Bronze medals
were awarded to first, sec-
ond and third place winners
for males and female run-
ners and walkers in seven
age groups. In addition,
all participants received a
brightly colored commemo-
rative T-shirt. Competitors
also received a pedometer,
pen, band aids, photo gift
certificate and other goodies
donated by Gulf Power, the
Walton County Health De-
partment and Fedora Pho-
tography Group. Pizza Hut
provided pizzas. Fruit and


other snacks were available
to the runners and walk-
ers upon completion of the
course.
A medal was presented
to the youngest participant,
Logan LaGrosse, of De-
Funiak Springs, who was 6
years old on race day. The
most senior competitor re-
ceived a medal, this was
James McDaniel of Jay, who
competed as a walker at 73
years young.
The successful event
would not have been pos-
sible without the help of
many volunteers. Johnnie
Kay Elum brought Anchor
and Key Club students from
Walton Senior High School
to help time the event. The
Junior Army ROTC cadets
under Colonel Jimmy Macon
kept runners on the correct
race course. Mr. Stakley
from Walton Middle School
loaned timing equipment.
Lt. Mears of the DeFuniak
Police Department insured
safety through traffic con-
trol. An. Emergency Medi-
cal Service team was on site
in case of medical emergen-
cies. The city of DeFuniak
Springs donated the use of
the amphitheater and al-
lowed this beautiful town to
be used as the venue for the
run. JohnV Murphy took won-
derful photos of the event.
Friends, spouses and chil-
dren of the Woman's Club
offered much needed help.
The DeFuniak Springs
Woman's Club thanked Dr.
Michael O'Donnell, Gulf
Coast Insulation and Gulf
Power who were the main
sponsors. Thanks also to
Samantha Garner of the
local Pizza Hut who for
the third year rose early to
make the delicious pizzas
for the participants. They


could not have had such a
successful event without
contributions from other
local businesses. They are
grateful to those mentioned
above plus WZEP, Bright-
house Networks, Walmart,
The Bookstore, Warren,
Sasser and Associates, the
Nook and Cranny, Merri-

Walton beats county rival Paxton at



home to break seven-game slump


By REID TUCKER
The Walton Lady Braves
got their first softball win of
the 2012 season, posting a
9-6 victory against visiting
Paxton in what was going
to be either team's first W of
the season.
It looked as though there
would be no doubt as to the
game's outcome on Thurs-
day, March 1, what with
Walton (1-7) up 7-0 on the
Lady Cats (0-3), who also
have yet to get a win a few
games into their season, by
the bottom of the fifth in-
ning.
However, when Walton's


pitcher, Kayla Atchley,
walked three of the first five
batters and gave up two dou-
bles and a single it set the
'Cats up for a counterattack.
Paxton added six runs be-
fore Walton could get three
outs and suddenly the Lady
Braves had a shootout on
their hands. Nevertheless,
Walton managed to hold off
the Lady Cats' comeback at-
tempt by adding a further
three runs in the bottom of
the sixth to clench the win,
something that made Wal-
ton coach Randi McKie ex-
tremely proud, even if it was
a little too close for comfort.


"We've had teams come
back on us before," she said.
"The thought that we were
about to lose another one
that way definitely crossed
my mind but we hit the ball
better tonight and we kept
our errors down, so those
were the main things that
helped us get the win. If
you can play a clean ball-
game chances are you'll get
a win."
True to McKie's estima-
tion, Walton did indeed hit
the ball better than it has
against its previous seven
opponents, with five bat-
ters getting on base a total
of seven times. Sophomore
Kaitlyn Green led the Lady
Braves in scoring, with two
hits and three runs to her
credit, while Herndon and
Kayla Chancey scored two
apiece.
Paxton had one more hit
as a team than did Walton,
as three batters, Brazile,
Leah Infinger and Amber
Eckerle, got two hits apiece.
All the Lady Cats' runs came


via different players and
they came in rapid succes-
sion in the sixth inning due
to a combination of walks
and well-timed RBIs from
Infinger, Haley Revette and
Bethany Neale.
It was a virtual dead heat
from the mound, as Brazile
struck out eight Walton bat-
ters, but walked 12 and gave
up seven hits, whereas Wal-
ton's Atchley had four Ks,
and had an identical seven
hits and walks. Atchley had
a terrific clutch performance
in the top of the seventh
when she struck out the
first two Paxton batters and
turned a quick play, scoop-
ing up a hard ground ball
and firing it to waiting first
baseman Kaylyn Douglass
to make the final out.
McKie said Atchley's
pitching is continuing to
improve and that the fresh-
man's solid work ethic and
drive to win will no doubt
pay dividends for the Lady
Braves down the road.
"She struggled a little bit


early on but I knew she'd
pull through for us when we


really needed her," McKie
said.

The Walton Braves boys basketball team made the trip
to Gainesville to play in the University of Florida's gym-
nasium as one of eight teams playing for the Class A state
title.
The Braves, who 10 days earlier entered the Northwest
Florida Conference Tournament with just a 9-15 record,
won four games in four days on their home court to earn
the trip.
Walton squared off with Jacksonville Bishop Kenney
with the two teams tied at 12-all after one quarter of play
before the Jacksonville squad pulled away to a 28-23 half-
time lead.
Walton trailed 40-35 at the start of the third quarter and
fell 50-44 with senior guard Wesley Wilkerson leading the
team with 20 points, the only Braves player in double fig-
ures. Bob Lindsey, the only other senior on the squad, was
held to two points with Bob McMillion and Tommy Jones
adding eight points apiece. The Braves finished the year
with a 13-16 mark under Jack Akins.

Walton Baseball Falls at Marianna 4-0


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves base-
ball team's struggle to score
runs continued as the Mari-
anna Bulldogs posted a 4-0
shutout on Friday night
while allowing the visiting

test.
The Bulldogs took advan-
tage of four Walton errors
while senior Michael Mader
needed only 79 pitches on
the mound to strikeout 13
Braves batters while allow-
ing only three base-runners


in the contest.
Marianna plated their
first run of the game on a
groundout but added two
more in the bottom of the
third inning as Braves
pitcher Brennon Orcutt hit
a batter, had an error, and
uncorked a wild pitch that
helped the Bulldogs increase
the lead to 3-0.
The Braves cost them-
selves another run with
self-inflicted wounds in the
bottom of the sixth inning
as a hit batter, an error, a


wild pitch and a passed ball
played the final run of the
4-0 decision as the Walton
County squad fell to 2-3 on
the year.
Chris Kelly had a double
for Walton's lone hit of the
contest Orcutt took the loss
after pitching four innings
and giving up only four hits
to go with five strikeouts.

dropped their first contest
of the year with a 5-2 loss to
the Bulldogs to fall to 3-1 on
the year.

with Bozeman last week. Bozeman rallied for an 8-5 victory
over the Walton County squad but the Seahawks grabbed an
18-7 win over Franklin County on Friday night to improve

By PATRICK CASEY
Bozeman third baseman
Ryan Hardy hit a pair of
home runs, including a sixth
inning grand slam, to rally
the Bucks past South Wal-
ton 8-5 on Thursday night
in a District 4, Class A base-
ball contest.
Hardy, who hit the first
pitch of the game by Sea-
hawks starter Alex Astin
for a home run to leftfield,
drove in five runs on the
night with a cannon shot off
of reliever Dustin Allen on a
2-0 pitch in the sixth inning
to complete a rally from a
5-3 deficit.
The Bucks plated two
runs in the top of the first
inning only to see the Sea-
hawks touch up starter
Matt Hall for a pair of their
own as senior Tyler Town-,
son doubled in Drew Pfeiffer
to cut the lead to 2-1, then


scored on a throwing error
by Hardy on a grounder hit
by Astin.
South Walton took the
lead in the bottom of the
second inning as Fletcher
Wilson reached third base
with the help of a throw-
ing error by Hall on a bunt,
then scored when Dustin Al-
len doubled him in for a 3-2
advantage.
The Bucks tied the game
with a run in the top of the
third as first baseman Chris-
tian, Dillahey grounded out
to first base with catcher
Zach Rowell scoring the ty-
ing run after the Bucks had
loaded the bases with three
consecutive singles.
South Walton regained
the lead in their next at-
bat as Townson singled and
later scored on a single by
teammate Rex Rutledge for
a 4-3 margin.

The Seahawks tacked on
another run in the bottom of
the fifth inning as Townson
doubled and later scored on
a passed ball to extend the
lead to 5-3.
The wheels came off for
the Seahawks in the top of
the sixth inning as Astin
gave up a pair of singles and
walked Joey Brannen to
load the bases. Dustin Allen
relieved Astin but walked
the first batter he faced to
trim the deficit to 5-4. Har-
dy then delivered the ,fate-
ful blow on a 2-0 pitch that
cleared the centerfield wall


for an 8-5 lead.
The Seahawks were un-
able to mount a rally over
the final two innings as they
fell to 1-5 on the year.
Nick Borthwick's club did
pick up their second.win of
the season on Friday night
as they drubbed Franklin
County 18-7 to improve to
2-5 overall and 1-2 in dis-
frict competition.

teams. With the win John Calipari tied Adolph Rupp for
the best start by a Kentucky coach through their first 107
games (94-13). The Wildcats' 30 regular season wins is the
most in program history and the school's 13th 30-win sea-
son. John Calipari has tallied eight 30-win seasons and has
six in the last seven years.

Walton splits in tennis meets against



Arnold and Rocky Bayou


By REID TUCKER
Walton's boys' got their
first team tennis win, beat-
ing Rocky Bayou 4-1 on the
road on Thursday, March 1.
The Braves are now 3-1
after falling to West Florida,
Bay and Arnold. Walton's
only victories until the win
at Rocky Bayou were two
individual wins at the five-
seed singles and a solitary
win at number-two doubles.
However, the Braves had
a strong showing against


Rocky, with Clay Cawthon
posting a close 8-6 win over
top-seed Andrew Beno. Only
Thomas Brannon fell to the
Knights, and that came af-
ter a 10-4 tiebreak finish in
favor of Rocky Bayou's Na-
than Belthazar.
Two days earlier, how-
ever, the story could not be
more different, as a visit-
ing Arnold squad defeated
Walton 7-1, with only Lewis
Goodman claiming an 8-6


win on the day.
The Lady Braves tennis
team, though, remains win-
less after four games, after
falling 5-0 to Rocky Bayou
and 8-0 to Arnold despite an







I -


average of four game wins
per pro set. Walton was set
to face Bay at home in a re-
match on Tuesday, March
6, but scores were not avail-
able at press time.

BCC supports request for


reallocation of state funding for U.S 331


By DOTTY NIST
Citizens asked county
commissioners last week to
delay the printing of ballots
for the planned April 24 ref-
erendum---and ask the state
to put money pledged for the
four-laning of the U.S. 331
bay bridge toward the four-
laning of the rest of U.S. 331
instead.
The request came from
Bonnie McQuiston and Don
Riley of the Walton County
Taxpayers Association at
the Feb. 28 Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) regular meet-
ing at the Walton County
Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs.
In December, state De-
partment of Transporta-
tion (DOT) officials had
announced plans to move
forward quickly with the
four-laning of the U.S. 331


bay bridge, pledging $102
million toward the $177-mil-
lion project, with the condi-
tion of Walton County pro-
viding a local match for the
remainder, $75 million. The
plans came with assurances
for the remainder of U.S. 331
to be four-laned all the way
to 1-10 within the next few
years if the county agreed
to help fund construction of
the bridge.
The DOT officials had
stated that, without a local
match being provided, the
$102 million would be put
toward other needs, which
could be in any part of the
state.
DOT Secretary Ananth
Prasad had suggested im-
posing a $2 toll on the two-
lane southbound span, to
be constructed to add two
lanes to the bay bridge, as
a source for the local match-


TDC to discuss


new building,


beach nourishment


By DOTTY NIST
A full agenda is on tap for
members of south Walton
County's tourism council at
their 9 a.m. March 13 quar-
terly meeting at the South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC) build-
ing.
Among items to be taken
up by the council will be
working terms for negotia-
tion of an agreement with
the Florida Forest Service
involving a new TDC build-
ing. The building would


be sited on Forest Service
property immediately south
of the U.S. 331/U.S. 98 in-
tersection.
The cost of the facility
has been estimated at $4.5
million. This would be a re-
placement facility for the
current TDC offices and
visitor center and, as envi-
sioned, would also include a
nature and education center
with boardwalks through
the Point Washington State
See BUILDING 13-C


FOR RESIDENTS attending the Feb. 28 Walton County Board of County Commission-
ers meeting, the widening of the U.S. 331 bay bridge was a lesser priority than the four-
laning of the rest of U.S. 331. County commissioners voted to support the citizens in their
effort to convince the Florida Department of Transportation to reallocate state funds that
had been conditionally pledged for the four-laning of the bridge. (Photo by Dotty Nist)

forth the alternative of rais-

revenue to pay off the bonds
or loan that would be ob-
tained to fund the match.

South Walton artist Robin

Wiesneth selected as 2012

ArtsQuest poster winner


r,-


i ( Y(r.0(;1D


Miramar beach resident
Robin Wiesneth's acrylic
painting titled "Elvis Flies
for K9 Air" was selected
from among 200 submitted
images to represent the 2012
ArtsQuest Fine Arts and
Music Festival. Produced by
the Cultural Arts Alliance
of Walton County (CAA),
the 24th annual event will
be held over Mother's Day
Weekend, May 11-13, and
features activities for the
entire family in downtown
Seaside. Wiesneth's artwork
will be featured on posters,
t-shirts, and other market-
ing pieces promoting the
event.
"There were many talent-
ed artists' submissions, mak-
ing it a very difficult choice,"
said Jennifer Steele, execu-
tive director of the CAA.
"Since this year's event is
focusing on a broad fam-
ily appeal, the committee
thought this fun, whimsical
design best portrayed the
2012 event. Walton County


is home to some extremely
talented artists, and we are
proud to feature Robin in
our regional and national
promotion of ArtsQuest."
Wiesneth is a self-taught
artist that has been experi-
menting with acrylics on
canvas for about four years.
With a vivid imagination,
she often paints fanciful and
quirky scenes that appear
realistic. She's frequently
commissioned to paint por-
traits of dogs and other
pets.
"No request is too crazy,"
says Wiesneth. "My com-
missioned work ranges from
traditional portraits to silly
imaginary settings. I'm
thrilled that the CAA com-
mittee saw something in
Elvis and thought that he'd
make a great 'poster dog' for
ArtsQuest. More than any-
thing, I love to create art
that makes people smile."

Commissioners to consider Driftwood Restaurant


By DOTTY NIST
A proposal for a
6,792-square foot beach-
front restaurant on Scenic
Gulf Drive has been placed
on the agenda for the March
13 Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) meeting.
Driftwood Restaurant
was the original name for
this proposal by developer
Bob Bonezzi, but the res-
taurant was referred to as
Dixie's in later submittals.
The restaurant is proposed
for the former Murmuring
Surf Cottages location, 240
feet east of Miramar Beach
Drive.
The proposed restaurant
had encountered opposition
from neighbors, resulting in
changes to the proposal by
the applicant.
Originally, the propos-
al had included plans to


use San Antonio Street, a
gravel right-of-way next to
the 0.82-acre project site,
for parking. However, the
plans for parking had been
withdrawn. The developer
also agreed to maintain the
gravel road.
When the proposal was
reviewed at the October
2011 Walton County Plan-
ning Commission meeting,
an engineer representing
the applicant agreed that
plans for a "right in, right
out" entrance/exit would be
changed to provide full ac-
cess and allow vehicles ex-
iting the restaurant to go
either left or right.
As presented at the plan-
ning commission meeting,
the proposal reflected the
removal of a previously-
planned stage inside the
building, a larger kitchen,
and the reduction of the bar


area to 25 percent of the
entire building area. Win-
dows facing the next-door
residential condominium
Avalon Dunes had also been
eliminated.
The planning commission


approved the proposal as re-
vised.
The restaurant propos-
al had been placed on the
agenda for the November
2011 BCC meeting. Howev-
er, at the outset of the meet-


ing, county staff announced
that the item had been with-
drawn approximately one
hour before the meeting.
According to county plan-
ning staff, there have been
no additional changes to the


proposal.
The March 13 BCC meet-
ing is scheduled to begin at
4 p.m. and take place at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.

Realtors sponsor guardian ad litem orientation, March 16


Realtors spend their ca-
reers helping people find
the perfect home or perfect
business. Now Realtors and
members of the public will
have the opportunity to help
local children find their "for-
ever home" as a guardian
ad litem or a friend of the
guardian ad litem program.
The Realtor Outreach Com-
mittee of the Emerald
Coast Association of Real-
tors (ECAR) will sponsor a
Guardian ad Litem Orienta-
tion on March 16.

Every day, children are
abandoned, neglected, or
abused and are moved into
the foster care system. They
often have to leave their


school district and friends.
They are alone in the court
system and need a way to
make their voice heard.
Guardians ad litem give
these children that voice.
They visit their foster homes
and schools. Guardians talk
to everyone involved in the
child's life and the child to
help determine their needs.
In northwest Florida, there
are more than 2,500 children
under court supervision,
and only about half of these
children have a guardian ad
litem representing them in
court. These children need
a voice; they need a forever
home; they need a guardian
ad litem.
There are multiple volun-


teer opportunities through
the guardian ad litem pro-
gram other than becoming
a guardian. Volunteers are
needed to help spread the'
word about the program,
arrange for school supply
drives, assist with clerical
work, assist in grant writ-
ing or fundraising, donate
to the fundraising nonprofit
Northwest Florida Guard-
ian ad Litem Foundation,
and much more.
Members of the public,
business owners, and Real-
tors are invited to attend
the Guardian ad Litem Ori-
entation sponsored by the
Realtor Outreach Commit-
tee of the Emerald Coast
Association of Realtors to

At its meeting on March
1, the Walton. County De-
sign Review Board heard
requests for installation
of four sign projects all of
which are along the U.S. 98

The first of the requests
was by Bodacious Consign-

for approval of two signs
which will' be provided by
World of Signs. This request
was held over from the pre-

code violation which has not
yet been corrected. One of
the signs, approximately 3
by 13 feet, is for the Boda-.
cious building and the other
is a monument sign measur-
ing 8 by 10 feet. The board
made approval of the signs
contingent on completion of
painting to bring the build-

PAST PRESIDENT NANCY GEHRKE welcomes volunteer Jerry Barton to the annual
Walton County Snowbird Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon at Captain Dave's on Scenic
98.



WtonD County SDo-wberd Nefws

Anyone who didn't have a great time on the Emerald Coast in February must have
ripped a page right out of Rip Van Winkle because the month sizzled with activity when
hundreds of Walton County Snowbirds found their groove in dozens of venues. For the
club's activity leaders, February is when months of planning comes to fruition in the form
of dances, luncheons, banquets, golf tournaments, and informal get together to celebrate
another year of achievement and camaraderie. The card clubs, euchre and bridge,
maintained a lively schedule as did the active sports groups including the newly formed
basketball club, the tennis players, golfers, and bicyclists. The social scene gathered steam
when 230 Walton County Snowbirds appeared for the annual dinner dance held at the
Sandestin Hilton where they danced to the music of the Mike Mancini Band and enjoyed
song and dance routines by husband and wife duo Roger and Beth Ochs. The Snowbird
Singers practiced with diligence each Friday in order to wow their audiences with March
performances. Hundreds took pleasure in the general meetings where they met local mer-
chants and then enjoyed professional entertainers who filled the stage with energy and
talent. The Singles, no pikers in the social arena, kept to a fast-paced schedule throughout
the month with five events beginning with a super bowl party and ending with a luncheon
at Harry T's on Feb. 26.
A few hundred more snowbirds appeared at the Embassy Suites on Feb. 22 for the an-
nual Ladies Luncheon where they enjoyed a fashion show, courtesy of Bealls with models,
including for the, first time_, men, draw~ from snowbird ranks. More turned out for the
Women's Charity, Scranble. andd AMn's President's Cup, an annual contest between U.S.
and Canadian snowbirds, on Feb. 23 where the Canadians retained title to the cup for the
fourth consecutive year in the contest's four year history. Another 100 appeared at Captain
Dave's on Feb. 25 where while dolphins and pelicans cruised by, they listened to President
Bonnie Schwichtenberg and Past President Nancy Gehrke thank them for a year of service
on behalf of the club's nearly 2,000 members. Those who missed some or all of the action
need not fret because it all happens again next year. I
Bonds of friendship between snowbirds and local communities firmed up when the Oka-
loosa County Tourist Development Council hosted the Second Annual Snow Bird Appre-
ciation Sock Hop at Emerald Coast Convention Center on Sunday, Feb. 26. With thanks
to Tom Woodworth for reporting, we add that earlier, on Feb. 23, DeFuniak Springs resi-
dents, some in period dress, welcomed snowbird visitors to their historic city on "Snowbird
Appreciation Day." Among the snowbirds were Inga Nyquist, Tom Woodworth and Wanda
June King. Greeted in the Florida Chautauqua "Hall of Brotherhood" with refreshments,
the participants enjoyed a brief history, a trolley and walking tour of homes, and a visit to
the library.
Betty Martin, who reports bridge scores, relates a recent Wednesday evening winners
Ruth Towns, Nancy Smithers, and Lynn Smith. Wednesday afternoon winners were Betty
Martin and Elaine Zwickey.
Jerry Barton reminds members they may store a container, a card table, chair and
similar objects at Affordable Storage located at 114 Sugar Drive (one mile east of 30A on
Highway 98...south side). Hours of operation for storage are 3 4 p.m. Wednesday, March
14, Wednesday March 21 and March 28.
Bonnie Schwichtenberg captained the winning team for the Tuesday Golf League final
round. Bob Zimmerman, Ton Gaston, and Carol Wahl scored birdies (one under par). Jack
Flaherty won the day's longest put on hole six and Lanie Flaherty repeated the feat on hole
seven.

The productions sched-
uled begin with River Rat

Y. York, described as a "Key-
stone Kops kind of komedy

Cat, Dale Beaver and "the
one remaining tree." The
show runs Mondays start-
ing March 5 April 2 at 5

21 Aug. 13, at 6:30 p.m.
Beanie Boren, a science wiz
who is not keen on reading,
has designed a book reading
machine for the science fair.
Unfortunately, the machine
is neither user friendly nor
bug free. When Beanie turns
it on, lights flash, thun-
der booms and out pop the
witches from Snow. White,
Hansel and Gretel and the
The Wizard of Oz, each set
to wreak havoc! Beanie
must get them back into the
books with help from the
good guys in the same sto-


ries.
Next for kids is The Em-
peror's New Clothes, a fairy
tale by Blanche Martin

with a juicy spy novel, add
a dash of Monty Python and
you have The 39 Steps, a
fast-paced whodunit for any-
one who loves the magic of
theatre. This two-time Tony
and Drama Desk Award-
winning treat is packed with
nonstop laughs, over 150
zany characters (played by
a ridiculously talented cast
of four), an on-stage plane
crash, handcuffs, missing
fingers and some good old-


fashioned romance!
In The 39 Steps, a man
with a boring life meets a
woman with a thick accent
who says she's a spy. When
he takes her home, she is
murdered. Soon, a myste-
rious organization called
"The 39 Steps" is hot on the
man's trail in a nationwide
manhunt that climaxes in
a death-defying finale. The
production runs Thursdays

In times gone by, a person would go on vacation,
a politician would go door to door, and any type
of entertainment news would come out in the gos-
sip rags once a month at the grocery stores. But
thanks to twitter, Facebook, and other social me-
dias, folks know when we are gone, we can watch
elected officials every move, and the latest scoop
on Hollywood, is all just a click of the mouse.


Remember the days when
the family vacation was
planned? You asked the next
door neighbor to watch the
house, collect the mail and
had the paper stopped being
delivered. No fuss, no wor-
ries, usually no problems.
If you remember those
days, then reflecting back
on how the word about our
favorite, or unfavorable
politician, or elected official
got their word out, and how
the "gossip rags" in the su-
permarket lines were the
hottest impulse buy in the
entire store. Well those days


have long gone, and thanks
to the help of the Internet,
we no longer have to speak
to a neighbor, a politician,
or even a family member, or
friend....just post it!
Twitter and Facebook
have become an explosive
means of telling all, seeing
all, -and learning all. From,
"catching a candid shot of
dad asleep on the toilet,"
to snapping a shot on the
iPhone of "your best friend
cheating off the test of an-
other classmate," it is auto-
matically posted on all so-
cial medias, in less than five


THE ELEVENTHANNUAL RT. 30A Antique & Vintage
Car Show, returns to Rosemary, Beach, March 24, from 10
a.m. 3 p.m. Applications are still being accepted for all
classic and vintage automobiles more than 30 years of age.
Gift bags will be presented to the first 25 car owners that
register, and there will be entertainment throughout the
day, along with demonstrations and a variety of category
awards. Registration is $20 in advance, and $25 the day of
the show. For more information, and registration, log on to

seconds.
Even the commercials
for the new 4G phones
boast about having record
speeds of downloading gos-
sip, news, pictures, just
about anything that keeps
us looking at our phone, and
not watching the car stop in
front of us. We have become
a world of zap it!, snap it!,
tell it!, and post it! Thanks
creators of the microwaves!
The entertainment world
is another source of, in my
opinion, a waste of time and
air. We see who Justin Tim-
berlake is kissing, see who
Snooki is sleeping with at
the moment, or who looked
best on the Oscar red car-
pet. What once was news re-
served for the tabloids, and,
in the Golden Age of the big
screen, for the movie pre-
views, is now streaming on
our iPhones, on the tickers
of the cable entertainment
networks, and popping up
on LED billboards.
But Facebook, despite its
very helpful means of get-
ting the word out about a
political issue, an upcoming
event, posting of a family
portrait, or just catching up
with friends you have -want-
ed (or not wanted) to talk
to, has its downfalls, and
serious issues. Issues that
even have Google, the site's
main search engine, and Fa-
cebook as well, seeing some
problems where they are be-
ing dragged right into the
middle.
For those who post on
their sites, "can't wait, three
more days til Vegas baby"
they are actually saying is,
"I will be gone to Las Vegas
in three days, and since you
know that I live alone, my
house will be sitting unoc-
cupied and a very easy tar-
get to rob. Help yourself."
Now that might sound lu-
'dicrous, but oh so true.
Though you are posting this
on your Facebook page and
making it available to just
"your friends," it is a gate-
way to criminals-that might
get into your private page,
or friends with one of your


Facebook pages. Or it might
even be one of your friends.
Drastic yes, but police
and sheriffs offices across
the country are now turning
to these sites immediately,
to see the activity that had
taken place on that site, and
who had been "stalking"
that person on Facebook.
They are finding more and
more criminals are using
this network to find their
next target. Even more dis-
turbing some of those be-
ing robbed, have been vic-
timized by "friends" on the
site.
But experts and those in
law enforcement say there
is an even darker side to
Facebook and similar sites,
than just the home inva-
sions and robberies. Their
main concern and what has
been spiking over the last
three to four years, is with
murders, rapes and stalk-
ings.
Consumer groups and
now individual state attor-
ney's offices are cracking
down, and watching the
social networks even closer
for those types of scenarios.
From watching the post
of a girl saying she will be
at a certain nightclub, at a
certain time, to going with
another person to a party,
there are those who "creep"
on those sights and look for
the opportunity to harm.
There is even a way on
the Facebook site, to moni-
tor who has been "stalking"
you and who has been spend-
ing a lot of time on your site
during a particular time pe-
riod. You may call that the
"big brother" scenario, but
it is helping to solve such
crimes, and is even help-
ing to prevent these acts of
violence, before the criminal
has a chance to act.
But Facebook has also
gotten a lot of attention
lately, due to spouses/part-
ners cheating on each other
with old college flames, high
school sweethearts, and
even random friends that
are on their Facebook page.
It has seen such a rise in di-

vorces over the past three to
four years, that it has now
been called a national epi-
demic.
In a recent poll taken by
Harvard University and the
Boston Globe, it was found
that 45-55 percent of all re-
cent marriages, from 2007
to present, started, or either
got a kick-start, because of
Facebook. An alarming rate
for divorces, when more
than 40 percent of all those
who cheated, or were tagged
as having an affair, knew
the person for more than 20
yeas, or longer.
Another 30 percent of
those had an affair, that led
to divorce, with those they
had meet on Facebook and
befriended, and another 20-
25 percent had an affair,

a current friend that they
not only saw on a weekly,
or monthly basis, but talk-
ed to just about as much,
via the cell phone. The cell
phone, also a tool that has
destroyed marriages, has
now fallen to second in the
rankings of marriage and
relationship-destroying so-
cial network tools.
Staggering figures that
have seen an explosion in
the recent years, and are
now just beginning to make
headlines. Those that actu-
ally talked to journalists,
or had the nerve to be in-
terviewed, concerning their
infidelity, say that using
Facebook started out as an
innocent way to find old
friends, and make new ones,
but it escalated and for
them, became the best way
to send electronic love let-
ters.
Facebook, Twitter, in-
stant messages and other
social networks, are a great
way to get the word out to
family and friends, and save
the consumers hundreds of
millions of dollars in post-
age, printing and other
means of getting their pho-
tos and notes out to those
family and friends. But as
technology becomes an even
bigger part of our everyday
life, be careful and atten-
tive to everything you post,
say, or do, because like any
technology, it keeps records,
stores conversations, and
most of all, everyone can
read and see it!
Happy communications,
and you can find me on Fa-
cebook, but you will never
know when I leave town, or
where I'm going to be. That's
just how I roll!

Kisela added, approximate-
ly $80 million of work that
would be necessary to widen
all of the highway up to I-10
is unfunded at this time.
Kisela said he under-

only take $80 million. Hope-
fully it would be. possible to
convince DOT for the money
to be used for what "every-
one in the county wants," he
told the commissioners.
County Commission
Chairman 'Scott Brannon
called for going directly to
the DOT secretary with the
request..
Kisela said the secretary
had previously indicated
that the $102 million is
"discretionary dollars" that,
if hot used for the bridge,
would "be in competition"
for use with "projects state-
wide." However, Kisela ob-
served, "there's no harm in
asking,"
DeFuniak Springs resi-
dent J.B. Hillard comment-
ed that he was pleased with
the action that the, commis-
sioners had taken and glad
that citizens had gotten in-
volved with the issue.
In response to a question
on March 1, Kisela said that
it would be possible that
no referendum would be
needed if DOT agreed to the
citizens' request. However,
he said that a referendum
would be required if DOT
agreed to the request with
the condition of matching
funds being provided by the
county.

Bay Elementary PTO brings students and nature together


Story and photo submitted
by Bay Elementary PTO

Bay Elementary students
have a new place to enjoy
a classroom environment.
Students can now enjoy
classes outside thanks to
the Bay Elementary Parent
Teacher Organization (PTO)
who have completed a sci-
ence and nature trail behind
the school. "Students will be
able to appreciate nature
and learn about the incred-
ible environment in which
we live," said PTO President
Rene Endres. "They will be
able to visit the trail during
all the seasons, learn about
how their environment
changes and adapts and
hopefully gain a respect for


nature that will carry them
into their adult lives."
The Science Trail has
been planned for almost 10
years and the goal of the
2011-12 PTO was to com-
plete the trail by spring.
Lowes presented a grant
to Bay Elementary in 2008
towards construction of the
trail. The trail is now com-
pleted and includes wooden
bleachers where students
are able to sit and be taught
by their teachers or if so
inclined are able to enjoy a
peaceful lunch on a beauti-
ful day. The Science Trail
is lined with timbers mak-
ing a pathway to two class-
room sections and overlooks
a nature pond where many
of the areas wildlife live and


thrive. The students will
also be designing markers
dedicated to each plant and
animal in the nature trail
habitat.
The Bay Elementary PTO
is very excited to have been
able to complete this project
for the students, teachers
and faculty. "We have pro-
vided Kindles for the library,
SmartBoards for all the nec-
essary classrooms, a supply
budget for each of the teach-
ers until the end of the year
and a group spearheaded
by our vice president, Mary
McFerrin, was even able to
provide Ipads for the teach-
ers. "Considering the re-
cent cutbacks in education
the Bay Elementary PTO
has worked extra hard this


year to fulfill all the needs of
our teachers and students.
So far we have been able
to do all of that and more,"
said Endres, "but the Sci-
ence Trail was our biggest
and most important project
because it will be something


the school can appreciate for
years to come."

Bay Elementary PTO
welcomes parents to visit
the trail. "The goal of the
trail is to bring together a
greater appreciation for the


environment in which we
live not only to our children
but to all that visit" added
Endres. The PTO would
also like to thank Penning-
ton Lawn Care for donating
their time helping to finish
the trail.


BAY ELEMENTARY students will have perfect weather this week to enjoy the new trail
and outside classroom environment thanks to the Bay Elementary Parent Teacher Organi-
zation (PTO). Photo by Bay Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
