Freeport City Planner
Latilda Henninger pre-
sented an overview of the
"Freeport Waterfront Dis-
trict" which is bounded on
the north by SR-20, on the
east by Lafayette and Four
Mile Creeks, on the south by
the entrance into LaGrange
Bayou and on the west by
CR-83A East. She talked


about the waterfront's his-
tory, the existing residential
developments, businesses
currently operating on the
waterfront and about 130
acres of property, zoned in-
dustrial by the county, that
are available for economic
development. She reminded.
the board that Freeport is
already recognized by the
state as an "area of eco-
nomic concern" and that
both Freeport and Walton
County have agreed to par-
ticipate in the Waterfronts
Florida program.
A general discussion
identified the need to dredge
the channel from the port


to the bay, a task that de-
pends on finding a solution
to the dredge spoils disposal
problem. A means for main-
taining the channel is also
needed so that the work-
ing waterfront can be sus-
tained.
Henninger announced
a schedule of additional
workshops on April 4, April
18 and May 4. These work-
shops will nominate an ac-
tion committee, produce a
draft vision statement and
vision plan, inventory assets
and liabilities, set priorities
and identify the next steps
to be taken in an ambitious
program to make economic
improvement possible.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012


Last week, I watched
NBC news as two female
Marines-one an Iraq War
veteran, the other a pub-
lic information officer-re-
vealed they had been raped
at the U.S. Marine Barracks
in Washington D.C. Sadly,
this was not shocking con-
sidering one in three women
in the U.S. military is raped
and the Pentagon estimates
sexual assaults at 19,000
per year, but it should be.
It should be horrifying. It
should be infuriating, and if
America is not on a warpath
to rid its military ranks of
sexual terrorists and stand
with the victims, then we
value women no more than
the country we have occu-
pied for the past decade.
As is usually the case in
military proceedings of this
type, the women's charges
were dismissed as unsub-
stantiated and they were
charged with misconduct -
including fraternizing with
other officers. Ariana Klay,
the Iraq veteran, recounted
being told she "welcomed
the sexual harassment by
wearing makeup and run-
ning shorts." The other of-
ficer, Elle Helmer, said the
retaliation she experienced
after coming forward was


"horrible and ongoing." Both
have left the Marines.
However, the male offi-
cers involved with and ac-
cused in the case found it
a much more light-hearted
matter. The Marine Bar-
racks Protocol Officer went
so far as to post a satirical
"hurt feelings" report to his
Facebook page about the in-
cident last November. The
report (on a form similar to
the spoof-notepads found in
book stores with checklists
such as "I was a jerk be-
cause...I drank too much...
I didn't drink enough, I am
an idiot," etc.) mocked the
female Marines who filed a
complaint (six other women
have come forward). With
a stick figure crying on the
side of the page, the report
listed "I have hurt feelings
because: I am thin-skinned,
I have a [female anatomy], I
have woman-like hormones,
I am a little [expletive], I am
a cry baby, I want my mom-
my, My [female anatomy] is
easily hurt"-all of which
were checked by the officer.
Officials at the Barracks
in D.C. claim the officer who
posted the report to Face-
book has been "disciplined
for poor judgment," but dis-
pute all of the women's alle-

gations.
As my blood boiled and
my heart broke for these
women, for anyone who has
ever been raped, I realized
sympathy and anger are
useless without action-an
unloaded gun in the face of
a killer.
I began research and
found the Rape, Abuse, &
Incest National Network
(RAINN) where I learned
sexual assault happens ev-
ery two minutes in the Unit-
ed States, which means by
the time you have read this
column, two or more men,
women, or children have
been sexually assaulted,
and of those, 60 percent will
never speak out and report
it. That is more than a sta-
tistic. That is your moth-
er, sister, daughter, aunt,
grandmother, brother, son,
friend.
In an article in the Huff-
ington Post by Eve Ensler
titled "Over It," she discuss-
es being sexually assaulted
at age five and her disgust
with the world's noncha-
lance regarding rape jokes
and Facebook rape pages
(which people "fan" and
"like"), and accused politi-
cians (Clinton, Cain) and ce-
lebrities (Paterno, Polanski)
carrying on with their lives
while victims are shamed
and blamed. "I am over rape
victims becoming re-raped'
.when they go public...I am
over women still being silent
about rape, because they
are made to believe it's their
fault or they did something
to make it happen. I am over


Walton County attorney terminates


Adkinson Law Firm agreement


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County's new
county attorney Toni L.
Craig has terminated a re-
tainer agreement for special
counsel services and litiga-
tion counsel with the Adkin-
son Law Firm of DeFuniak
Springs. In a brief letter to
Clayton Adkinson dated


March 9, Craig wrote that
"after due consideration of
the matters and litigation
with which Walton County
is now dealing and its sub-
stantial legal costs," the
county has determined to-
end both agreements, with
a 30-day notice.
Craig goes on to detail


that she has assumed re-
sponsibility for planning
and development matters
(including Sandestin is-
sues), support services mat-
ters, administrative mat-
ters, public works matters,
finance matters and build-
ing department matters.
The letter requests that


the firm include Craig "in
any scheduling for any case
you have open" pending the
April 9, 2012 termination
effective date.
I "I appreciate the assis-
tance your firm has pro-
vided the County, and look
forward to a cordial rela-
tionship with you all," the
letter closes.

violence against women not
being a [number one] inter-
national priority when one
out of three women will be
raped or beaten in her life-
time-the destruction and
muting and undermining of
women is the destruction of
life itself," Ensler wrote.
Yet rape is not an issue
relegated to women alone;
15 percent of sexual assault
victims are children, and 3
percent are men. Consider-
ing there are eight times as
many men in policy-making
positions than women, what
are they doing to prevent
assaults or protect victims?
As Ensler stated, "I am over
the passivity of good men.
Where the hell are you?
You live with us, make love
with us, father us, befriend
us, brother us, get nurtured
and mothered and eternal-
ly supported by us, so why
aren't you standing with us?
Why aren't you driven to the
point of madness and action
by the rape and humiliation
of us?"
To find out what each
state is doing to protect
victims of sexual assault,
visit www.rainn.org, or in
Florida, contact Rep. Ted
Deutch, Rep. Diaz-Balart, or
Rep. Tom Rooney and refuse
to accept silence. Search En-
sler's "One Billion Women"
movement, from which one
billion women-the number
of women in the world who
have been sexually assault-
ed-will rise on Feb. 14,
2013 to end rape because it
is time for us as a nation to
say we are so over it.

for March 21, 2012
By the Mayor and City Council for a resolution of Pax-

Whereas, nationwide, nearly one-fifth of all high school
students (grades 9-12) are current smokers; along with
nearly one out of every 14 eighth graders;
Whereas, 3 million high school students are current
smokers; and more than a third of all kids who ever try
smoking a cigarette become new regular, daily smokers be-
fore leaving high school;
Whereas, one out of three youth smokers will ultimately
die prematurely from smoking-related diseases, unless cur-
rent trends are reversed;
Whereas, smoking kills more than 400,000 Americans
each year, representing more deaths than from AIDS, alco-
hol, car accidents, murders, suicides, drugs and fires com-
bined;
Whereas, most of these deaths could be prevented;
Whereas, Kick Butts Day is an annual national initia-
tive sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids that
makes elementary, middle and high school students lead-
ers in the fight against youth tobacco use and exposure to
secondhand smoke; and
Whereas, the children of Paxton, Fla. will no longer tol-
erate the tobacco industry's efforts to manipulate them into
buying lethal and addictive products through insidious ad-
vertising campaigns and marketing practices; and
Whereas, the mayor of Paxton, Florida wishes to stand
up with the children of Paxton, Fla. in opposition to the
sale, advertising and marketing of tobacco products to chil-
dren;
Therefore, be it resolved, that March 21, 2012, is hereby

Anonymous tip leads to arrest


and search warrant for residence


On Thursday, March 8,
officers with the DeFuniak
Springs Police received an
anonymous tip that a want-
ed person was staying at 56
W. Orange Ave. As officers
arrived at the residence,
a female subject fled from
the officers on foot, running


into the residence. Officers
secured the residence and
detained the occupants. Of-
ficers were told that the sus-
pect, Joshua Nobles was in
a rear bedroom. Nobles was
located and arrested on a
warrant for misdemeanor
violation of probation with


an original charge for nar-
cotics violations. During the
apprehension of Nobles, of-
ficers observed numerous
items of drug paraphernalia
inside the residence.
Subsequent investigation
lead to the arrest of Britta-
ny Lewis, who was arrested


for possession of metham-
phetamine and possession
of drug paraphernalia. Offi-
cers then obtained a search
warrant and located addi-
tional narcotic parapher-
nalia and the remains of a
methamphetamine lab. The
investigation is on-going at
this time and additional ar-
rests are expected.

Special

Olympics

activities

update


The 2012 campaign for
Special Olympics is well
under way and Torch Run
. routes are being finalized
from Escambia to Walton
County. The local leg of the
Torch Run is shaping up
to be the biggest ever and
represented by several dif-
ferent agencies, to include:
TheWalton County Sheriffs
Department; The Defuniak
Springs Police; The Florida
Highway Patrol; The Flori-
da Parole Commission; The
Florida Department of Cor-
rections (Institutions); The
Walton County Department
of Corrections; The Florida
State Attorney's Office;
The United States Proba-
tion Office; and The Florida
Department of Corrections
(Probation). They are again
expecting to have some of
the local Special Olympic
athletes present and hope-
fully have at least one ath-
lete to run the entire route!
They also are excited that
Applebee's in Sandestin will
be hosting a Tip A Cop fund-
raiser for Special Olympics
on 3-20-12, from 5:00 pm to
9:00 pm. They are expecting
local, Special Olympic ath-
letes to be on hand.
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.
Law Enforcement in
Walton County has again
shown overwhelming sup-
port of Special Olympics by
increasing public awareness
and raising much-needed
funds.

PROJECT

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


his customers are within
1,000 feet of fire hydrants
(of which 185 are new) were
some of his long-term goals
since he began with Mossy
Head Water Works more
than 30 years ago. He said
the completion of the project
made him proud of the com-
pany and the Mossy Head
community, his employees
and USDA.
"To be able to provide this
level of service to the commu-
nity was one of my dreams,"
Terrell said. "We've reached
these goals and I'm proud
of that. Without this hard-
working group of men and
women we would never be
where we are today. When
you look around and com-
pare Mossy Head to other
places of similar size, we
could not have done what we
have been able to do without
USDA. Everyone has been a
blessing to work with."
USDA Rural Develop-
ment State Director Richard
Machek, who was in atten-
dance at the ceremony, said
the Mossy Head expansion
was in the upper end of state
water system improvement
projects. The simple reason,
Machek explained, is that
Mossy Head's water system,
the National Rural Water
Association's 2006 silver
medalist for the best water
quality in the U.S., has what
is probably the purest water
in the state of Florida.
"Everybody wants to have


the best of something and a
community that has some of
the best water in the country
deserves all the help we can
give them," Machek said.
"There's just no comparison
to a spring-fed water source
like Mossy Head has."
Machek briefly told the
crowd of about 30 people
that the water system's ex-
pansion could help pave the
way for economic develop-
ment in Walton County,
something very much close
to the heart of Terrell, who
serves as chairman of the
County's Planning Board.
The addition of new infra-
structure support is criti-
cal to attracting new busi-
nesses and development to
the county, Terrell said,-and
Mossy Head's system now
has "no problem supporting
5,000 customers." The com-
munity's location near air-
ports, railroads and inter-
states and the border with
Okaloosa County makes
Mossy Head an ideal site for
development, he said.
"We now have the ability
for growth to take place in
the Mossy Head area and
beyond," Terrell said. "May-
be now we can get some
industry in the county and
this community is where it
needs to be. I'm hoping that
we can get a jump on that
development due to the in-
frastructure we now have in
place."


COUNCIL


bid by almost $34,000.
Assistant City Manager
Bill Holloway, who present-
ed the contract to the coun-
cilmen for their approval,
said it was his intention to
work with the contractor to
recover and reuse the met-
al exterior panels and the
framing of the south-side
addition. These materials
could be used by the city's
Public Works Department
for future projects.
The City Council also
voted 5-0 to authorize the
DFSPD to use a Depart-
ment of 'Justice grant to
cover the cost of exchanging
20 of Its five-year-old Glock
22 .40-caliber sidearms for
the newest version in that
series, the same as is cur-
rently used by the Walton
County Sheriffs Office. City
Marshal Mark Weeks said
. the DOJ grant will take care
of 100 percent of the $2,180
needed to replace the service
pistols, the most substantial
change to which is the addi-
tion of a replaceable back-
strap on the grip to better
accommodate shooters with.
different-sized hands. Glock
will reportedly offer $300
apiece for the DFSPD's cur-
rent weapons and will sell
the new models at a rate of
$109 per unit.
The Council also voted to


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


approve several other mo-
tions as part of its varied
agenda, which featured dis-
cussion regarding authori-
zation to set public hearing
dates for two separate is-
sues. Firstly, the proposed
annexation of a 40-acre
parcel of land owned by
Chief Weeks had an April
9 hearing date set and, sec-
ondly, a proposed expedited
permitting ordinance aimed
at helping local business
proceed with BP Oil Spill
claims got the go-ahead for
a March 26 public hearing
date.
- Other items that met
with unanimous approval
were the repealing of the
"Proportionate Fair Share"
ordinance, which Planning
Director Greg Scoville said
has a tendency to deter eco-
nomic development activity
because of the "vagaries of
the science and engineering
behind the costs assessed
for transportation improve-
ments." The Council also
voted straight down the line
to approve a "Boot Drive" re-
quested by Fire Chief Brian
Coley to raise the funds nec-
essary for this year's Fourth
of July fireworks display,
the bill for which sits at ap-
proximately $8,000, Coley
said.
Finally, the Council voted


to set dates for interviews
with the four applicants for
the city's vacant finance di-
rector position at the next
meeting, after background
checks have been complet-
ed, and to approve the ap-
pointment of local business
owner Marilyn Lawrence to
the Economic Devlopment
and Tourist Committee.
While those were the ma-
jor items requiring action at
the meeting, the City Coun-
cil also heard presentations
from Sara Comander, who
chairs" the aforementioned
Economic Development
committee, and from citizen
Jeannine Cole.
Comander gave the board
an update on the success of
the city's first-ever Snow-
bird Day, which, despite bad
weather for the duration of
the Feb. 23 event, brought
some 50 out-of-state visitors
to DeFumak Springs. Those
who attended toured historic
sites around the city, includ-
ing St. Agatha's Church, the
Walton-DeFuniak Library,
the Walton County Heritage
Museum and the Chautau-
qua Theatre, as well as a
brief tour of homes around
the Lake DeFuniak area.
Some guests also toured the
Chautauqua Winery later
that afternoon after the
* weather abated.


The Economic Develop-
ment and Tourist Commit-
tee also got the Council's
approval to go ahead with
plans to hold a "Family Fun
Night" on Friday, May 4.
The event will feature lo-
cal entertainers, musical
performances and possibly
a dance, with all proceeds
going toward the Fourth
of July fund. Plans called
for the closing down of two
blocks along Baldwin Av-
enue and Comander said
businesses will be encour-
aged to remain open late
Cole came before the
Council to enumerate prob-
lems she had with the city's
ordinance procedures and
public hearing notices. Cole
said she perceived instances
of the concealment of facts
in public notices, especially
in regard to last summer's
crematorium controversy.
Additionally, Cole called
into question the employ-
ment details of the city at-
torney position, which she
suggested should involve
term limits and a contract to
avoid the formation of what
she called "special interest
liaisons" between the city
attorney and government
officials.
No action was taken by
the Council regarding Cole's
suggestions at the meeting.

Spring events draw crowds


By ALICIA LEONA-RD
Crowds came out this
past weekend to attend mul-
tiple events in and around
DeFuniak Springs.
The parking lot was over-
flowing at the Walton Coun-
ty Fairgrounds as history
met with the present. Ven-
dors, civic clubs, antique
tractor and car lovers gath-


ered to celebrate together
for the 2012 Walton County
Antique Tractor Show and
Pull, the Wearing o' the
Green car show and history
fair.
The tractor pull brought
out a plethora of antique
and more modern machines
to test their might and abil-
ity to exercise their pull-


ing muscles behind the fair
grounds. The anticipated
yearly event is sponsored by
the Walton County Fair As-
sociation.
The Chautauqua Cruis-
ers sponsored the Wear-
ing o' the Green car show.
Model A's to muscle cars
lined up to receive prizes for
best original, modified, top
10 and more. The cars drew
crowds of admirers from
miles around.
Inside the Fairgrounds,


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 15,2012


the future met the past as
ambassadors from Walton in
historical dress meandered
and chatted with visitors
and participants wandered
by history displays as well
as arts and craft vendors
selling their wares. Many
stopped by to meet Mary
Joe (Mims) Craft, the great-
great-great-granddaughter
of Peter Franklin Ingalls
and the "first-double cousin"
of Laura Ingalls Wilder, au-
thor of Little House on the


Prairie.
Up the street, the park-
ing lot was full at the old
Coca-Cola building where
Southern PowerWorks was
holding an open house and
serving up hamburgers to
hungry shoppers. The new
business is a welcome sight
to citizens who have held
out hope that the local land-
mark would find a new occu-
pant. It was perfect timing
for those seeking new equip-
ment to spruce up their
lawns and outdoor living ar-
eas.


Just a few miles down the
street on U.S. 90, the Spe-
cial Olympics setup shop
at Al -Storage for a fish fry
and auction. As the band
No Friction entertained the
crowds, attendees enjoyed
lunch plates and an auction
for some great prizes for a
great cause.
If the number of residents
out and about this past
weekend was any indicator,
then spring has sprung in
Walton County. To find out
about upcoming events at
the Fairgrounds go to www.
waltoncountyfair.com


THE TRACTOR PULL and show gave visitors a glimpse
of the past with displays like this 1936 John Deere Model
A.


MARY JOE (Mims) Craft was a highlight at the annual
History Fair. The descendent of Peter Franklin Ingalls and
first-double cousin of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of "Little
House on the Prairie" entertained fairgoers with the history
of the Ingalls family.

MITZIE GRAFF, chamber coordinator at the Walton
Area Chamber of Commerce and Angel Karn (l-r) enter-
tained visitors at the History Fair this past weekend.


SUPPORTERS OF THE Special Olympics had just start-
ed setting-up their lawn chairs to enjoy the fish fry fundrais-
er and sounds of No Friction this past Saturday afternoon.
Many went home with special prizes from the special auc-
tion that was held later that day.


SOUTHERN POWERWORKS has moved into the old
Coca-Cola building on SR-83 North. The new business
has transformed the inside of the beloved building into a
showroom full of quality machinery to help homeowners
and landscapers have the lawn of their dreams. The new
business is open weekdays 8-5 and Saturdays from '8 until
noon.


THE CHAUTAUQUA CRUISERS Wearing o' the Green
car show drew antiques to muscle car owners and admirers

Atlantis


a microcosmic paradise


Photos and story by
CHUCK HINSON
Situated on the Caribbean
island of Nassau Bahamas
sits one of the most intrigu-
ing and beautiful vacation
destinations in the world.
With everything from night-
clubs, restaurants, a casino,
waterparks, watersports,
and numerous other activi-
ties, Atlantis Paradise Is-
land, is the ideal vacation
spot for a couple, a family,
or just a romantic get-away.
Only a two-hour flight
from Atlanta International
Airport, Atlantis is one of
the most unique architectur-
al marvels in the Caribbean.
Towering over the crystal
blue waters of the Carib-
bean and nestled in a lush
green forest of palm trees,
ferns and numerous wading
pools, the adventures are
endless and are fun for all
age groups.
More than 6,000 employ-
ees keep the resort island
running smoothly, and are
on the job 24-hours a day,
seven days a week. From
housekeeping and bartend-
ers, to blackjack dealers and
lifeguards, the ratio of em-
ployees to guests is 2-1.
The staff works incredibly
hard to provide the comforts
of home at the getaway oa-
sis. But with luxury' and
being waited on hand-and-
foot there is a costly price
for a stay in the Caribbean
paradise, and it starts with
what you have served to you
on your plate.
As with most Caribbean
islands, imported goods
such as milk, beef, cheese,
and even seafood, are at a
premium. Atlantis-Paradise


Island is like most of those
Caribbean destinations, ex-
cept the prices at this resort
are a bit more costly.
If making a trip to the
island resort, plan on pack-
ing your suitcase and your
wallet. Even though every-
thing that is purchased on
the island is put on a resort
credit and is made simple
for guests to not have to car-
ry around cash or a credit
card, the bills at the end of
your stay will surprise, if
not shock you.
Also remember that gra-
tuity is included on every
bill at a restaurant, bar or
nightclub.
Just across the Atlantis-
Paradise Island toll bridge,
is the capital city of the Ba-
hamas, Nassau. The center
for the Bahama Island gov-
ernment, it is also a mecca
for the arts and culture of
the Bahamian nation.
Home to many celebri-
ties, sports figures and roy-

Leading the Way: Boys & Girls Clubs

Youth of Year, Rosheen Blackmon


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012


By ALICIA LEONARD

The youth of today are
pummeled by an assortment
of influences, many not posi-
tive. But in the midst of all
those sources telling kids
what they want, how they
should wear their clothes
and who they should be,
there is an island of calm
and supportive adults and
peers lending themselves
as beacons to help kids find
their way. Boys & Girls
Clubs of the Emerald Coast
Youth of the Year, Rosheen
Blackmon, is one of those
lights.
Rosheen, the youngest
of three children and son
of proud mom, Melenese
Blackmon, is a freshman
at Walton High School. He
has a 3.9 grade point aver-
age and is active in sports.
He's a triple-threat sports-
man, participating in foot-
ball, baseball and basket-
ball as well as the Key Club,
and being a STEM (Science,
Technology, Engineering,
and Math) Scholarship stu-
dent.
Rosheen started visit-
ing the B&G Club during
his sixth-grade summer.
"My cousin told me about
the sports and activities
for kids here, so I came to
check it out. I got involved
and I've been coming here
ever since," he said. His fa-
vorite program at the club is
called Passport to Manhood.
"I really, like. We take real
life scenarios and talk about
how we should handle them.
We talk about respect. What
it takes to be a man." He
added, "My first goal is to fin-
ish high school and then go
to college in North Carolina


on a sports scholarship and
study neurology, because I
want to be a neurologist."
When asked what advice
he would give to other kids
his age, Rosheen responded,
"stay in school and study
hard."
Rosheen also understands
that many times, people can
be their own worst enemy.
In the essay he wrote for the
competition, he opened with
a quote by author Marianne
Williamson from the book
A Return To Love: Reflec-
tions on the Principles of A
Course in Miracles called
"Our Deepest Fear."
"Our deepest fear isn't
that we can't do anything
good, or do anything great.
It's that we can do that but
we are afraid to. To express
those things that we can do.
That's what has really in-
spired me to not be afraid of
myself or to not be afraid of
what I can do for others."
Rosheen was surprised
when he received the news
that he had been nominated
for the title. Public speaking
was one of the subjects he
was judged in. "I had to over-
come my fear of speaking in
front 'of people. We had a
Toastmasters class which
helped us give speeches and
answer impromptu ques-
tions. That helped me alot."
Besides sports and class-
es, many kids attending
the club have been able to
tour universities to get a
taste of the possible future
that lies before them. These
trips have included Florida
State University, the Uni-
versities, of Alabama and
Auburn, as well as a spon-
sored visit to a Florida Ga-
tors game. This year a group

Year, Rosheen Blackmon, credits the club with helping him
look forward to the future and learn skills that will help him
succeed.

of students will get to visit
three college campuses in
Georgia. "They get to visit,
Moorehouse, Spelman, and
Georgia State, since they're
all right there together and
get to stay overnight," Edu-
cation Director Stephanie
Pitts added.
Pitts told the Herald-
Breeze that it's the work
of the community that has
helped youth like Rosheen
be able to look towards a
bright future. "We have a lot
of help from the community.
Local business people and
mentors, like Judge Wells,
who comes by a lot with his
kids and mentors the kids.
Adkinson Law Firm spon-
sored a trip for the kids. The
sheriffs department does a
lot for us and sponsoring for
us. United Methodist.and a
lot of local churches do a lot
for the kids. The Masonic
Lodge 171 have helped us.
The Tax Collector's Office,
along with the local Kiwanis
Club are big supporters. We
also partner with the Unit-
ed Way of Walton/Okaloosa
County. We have citizens
just walk off the street and
donate to us, or send piz-
zas to the kids. Those are
always great surprises. We
have so many wonderful
people, some even who want
to remain anonymous, that
donate supplies, money,
computers and such that
just want to see the kids
succeed," she said.
One of those donors is
dollhouse builder Roy Walk-
er, who donated the replica
he built of the "Wiscasset"
house to the club. The repli-
ca is on tour right now at lo-
cal area businesses and the
club is selling raffle tickets
for the dollhouse. Tickets for
the raffle can be purchased
at the club. "We are so
grateful to him. The house
is amazing. It has such de-
tail. We want everyone to
get to see it,,before we raffle
it," said Pitts.

the Youth of the Year award event.


Right now, the center has
76 kids that are members
and during the summer
months last year the ros-
ter grew to .114, so space is
at a premium for the club.
Beside sports and activi-
ties, many of the kids turn
to the center for homework
help and mentors and tutors
are always welcome. "Even
if someone just drops in and
shares some life experiences
with a class of our kids, they
learn from that so well. Posi-
tive role models for the girls
and the boys are always
welcome. They don't have
to be a doctor or a lawyer,
just willing to share their
wisdom and life experiences
with the kids. We're open to
all volunteers and we do a
thorough back-ground check
on those that work with the
kids. Diversity, life experi-


ROSHEEN READING his essay to attendees at the Youth
of the Year awards by the Boy's & Girl's Clubs of the Em-
erald Coast. Rosheen said that visiting Toast Masters that
held a class at the club helped him get over his fear of public
speaking.


ence, 'time to work with the
kids, those are all traits we
welcome in volunteers here
at the club," Pitts said. Tu-
tors are also needed in the
afternoon especially those
that can help students with
more complicated math and
English courses, such as re-
tired teachers. "Advanced
math tutors, such as Cal-
culus or Trig and the like
would be great," she added,
with one certified teacher
for all the students, Pitts
said even tutoring via email
or phone is welcome from
willing volunteers that help
make a difference in kids
grades and future."
Rosheen believes one of
the most important lessons
he has learned so far with
the club is foresight con-
cerning his actions. "Think
before you act. Because ac-
tions speak louder then
words and actions also have
'consequences." He also cited'
traits such as determina-
tion, intelligence, persever-
ance and leadership as some
of the keys to. success that
the club and his mentors
have helped him discover
and that helped him win the
title.
Pitts said that Rosheen
was quickly becoming- a
mentor himself. "The kids
look up to him. He knows
they are watching him and
what he does. He provides
a good role model for them,"
she adds.
With structured classes,
physical activities, caring
volunteers and staff, Youth
of the Year Rosheen sums
up the club rather nicely,
"It's a good place to be."
Rosheen and many more
kids and adults want to give
back to the community that
gives so much to them, so,
they have scheduled a free
car wash to be held on March


24 at Triangle Chevrolet -in
DeFuniak Springs from 10
a.m until 1 p.m. with free
hotdogs and drinks for long
as they last. B&G Unit Di-
rector Bobby Smith said "it's
just our way of celebrating
four years and giving back
to the community that has
given us so much help and
support."
The club also looks for-
ward to seeing the com-
munity at a new event this
year. The DeFuniak Springs
Police Department (DF-
SPD) has teamed up with
the club for the DFSPD Ro-
deo scheduled for April 7

grounds. Tickets for this fun
event are being sold online

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,

It seems as of late that ev-
ery time I open my mouth, I
firmly insert my foot into it.
I usually have no problems
communicating with friends
and family. But, recently, it
seems no matter what I do
or say, it gets misconstrued
or a source of problems for
me.
I tried to help out a friend
that had a run of bad luck
and it made the situation
worse, not because I said
anything terrible, but be-
cause the person I was
speaking to either heard
what they wanted to hear
or misunderstood me. I'm
really not sure, where the
miscommunication was. All
I know is my friend thinks
I made their burden heavier
and that was the last thing
I wanted or thought would
happen. I was trying to help
them. Now, they're mad at
me.
I also have a relative that
is no longer speaking to me
just because I expressed my-
self, in my opinion, honestly
but carefully to them about a
situation that was bothering
.me. Or, at least I thought it
was carefully. Now, they're


not talking to me.
I'm really starting to
want to avoid people. It's
not that hard since I retired
and am single, but, I just
don't understand it. People
just seem to not understand
where I am coming from
and I'm starting to feel very
uneasy about sharing with
many any more.
This isn't the first time
this has happened to me. I'm
just starting to think some
things and relationships are
snake-bit from the start. Do
I need some anti-venom or
is their hope for me or.is the
end of my social life near?

Hermit in training

Dear Hermit,

I'm sure you have lived
long enough to know people
get their wires crossed, mis-
takes are made and the road


prizes. They will also have
refreshments, and lots and
lots of fun. Come join them


to heck is paved with good
intentions.
I have been in your shoes
and I understand where
you are coming from. I once
tried to help a friend as well
and no matter how high
the treetops were to which
I sang their praises, the
person who had the ruffled
feathers heard only the bits
they wanted to form their
own opinion and my efforts
to help a friend caused more
harm then good. Sometimes,
.as another friend of mine
has said, "not all thoughts
need to be expressed." And
sometimes, not all friends
need help. They can clean up
round their own nest with-
out your help, even if your
intentions were the best.
Trust me, only interfere if
you have to, not because you
can. It will save you some
friends. All you can do now
is say, "I'm sorry. I was try-
ing to help."
As far as your relative,
sometimes they don't need
to always know your opin-
ion. Some people are quite
happy in the reality they
have made for themselves.
As they say, "your opinion
of me is none of my busi-
ness." If they ask you or it's
something that needs to be
said, say it. Otherwise, keep
some thoughts to yourself if
they will serve no other pur-

welcome.


pose then to upset someone
or you are only doing it to
relieve your guilt over an is-
sue.
I don't think you should
become a hermit at all. May-
be just listen a little more
than you talk around people
that might get your mean-
ing misconstrued. If you
need to get your emotions
out, start a journal. Write
your feelings down and
when you express yourself
to others, make it clear, and
to the point. Sometimes the
meaning of what you want
to get across can get lost if
you use-too many words. Be
succinct but caring. Make
sure you tidy up around
your own nest before you try
help friends with theirs and
make sure their is a posi-
tive reason to express your
feelings to others. That's the
best advice I can give. God
bless and good luck.

Bullard
Albert Fletcher Bullard
III, 67, son of the late Al-
bert Fletcher Bullard Jr.
and Westa Wilkins Bullard
of DeFuniak Springs, died
March 7, 2012 at his farm in
Mossy Head, Fla.
Albert was a man of
many interests and a curi-
ous mind. He was an Eagle
Scout, a graduate of Auburn
University, where he re-
ceived a bachelor's degree in
business, and a member of
Sigma Alpha Epsilon social
fraternity.
He served in the Army
and was a Viet Nam veter-
an. He led a life of varying
business interests including
banking, real estate devel-
opment and yacht broker-
age. Being unemployed in
Hilton Head Island S.C.,
lead to a nine month sail in
the Bahamas with his first
wife Anne Bruce Atkinson
Bullard of Somerville N.C.,
on the "Sunburst."
Returning to Hilton
Head, he started Light-
house Yacht Brokerage and
spent many years living
aboard his sailboat, Wax
Arrow, and selling yachts to
people that came as custom-
ers and remained friends for
years. He had a great knack


for collecting interesting
people and keeping up with
them. One of the highlights
of his young life was being
a counselor and scuba dive
instructor at Camp Crusoe
on the island of Tobago in
1965. He was talking about
the importance of this camp
in the last days of his life.
. A second extended sail
brought him to Fort Lauder-
dale, which he called home
for many years. In 2006 he
relocated to the DeFuniak
Springs area where both
his parents had been born.
The new life as a hay farmer
brought new friends and
new skills. His lifelong love
of restoring military jeeps
and shooting finally found a
home.
He is survived by his wife,
Gabriele; daughter and son-
in-law, Alicia and Grant
Harter of Seattle, Wash.,
granddaughters Charlotte
and Caroline Harter; sis-
ter, Ann Mosely of Seagrove
Beach, Fla.; brother, Wil-
liam Bullard of Santa Rosa
Beach, Fla., and many neph-
ews and family relatives.
The family received
friends Sunday, March 11,
at Clary-Glenn Funeral
Home, 230 Park Ave., De-
Funiak Springs, FL.
Internment followed in

Becoming the Wonderful Women You Are

Solid Rock Community Church hosting

women's conference March 16-17


Solid Rock Community
Church will be hosting a
women's conference "Becom-
ing the Wonderful Woman
You Are," on Friday, March
16 from 7-9 p.m. and Satur-
day, March 17 10 a.m. 2
p.m. Lunch will be includ-
ed.

Joyce Igo will be the fea-


tured speaker. Igo is a song-
writer and gospel singer
from West Virginia. Her
theme for Women's Confer-
ence this year is "Becoming
the Wonderful Woman You
Are." It is often because one
does not know who they are
in Christ Jesus, that they
allow others and especially
the devil to make them feel


unworthy and useless.

Solid Rock Community
Church is located on the
corner of SR-83 and Joe An-
derson Road in DeFuniak
Springs, Fla.

Hanging on many a
teacher's wall or sitting on
his or her desk is that little
proverb that reads, "Life
is a classroom." Half of my
teachers had a variation
of this framed-art maxim,
right along with their globes
of the world and A-B-C wall
boarders. Uncapping my red
pen, I'll give this saying an
"A" for effort, but a big fat
"F" for accuracy.
Granted, life is an instruc-
tional course; that much
is sure. There are teachers
who teach, disciplinarians
who correct, dunces who dis-
tract, subjects that inspire,
friends who assist, and bul-
lies who persecute. But life
is not a static, clean, orderly
classroom. It is a laboratory
where we investigate, ex-
periment, and work things
out the best we can.
The Apostle Paul wrote to
the first generation of Chris-
tians with these words,
"Work out your salvation
with fear and trembling."
This is his prescription for
living. Life has to be entered
as if we are apprentices in
need of personal, practical,
hands-on experience. This
might make our hands quiv-
er, but there is no other real
way to learn than "working
it out" as we go.
I remember sitting in an
exhausting science class in
high school. The instruc-
tor droned on as if she were
auditioning for the whaa-
whaa-whaa voice track of
a Charlie Brown cartoon.
Chemical reactions, the
periodic table, kinetic en-
ergy, study questions, pop


quizzes, Isaac Newton and
Albert Einstein: It never
ended. We were chained to
our desks, automatons tak-
ing notes and regurgitating
information, learning little.
The next year, however,
we had a new science teach-
er, one who had a "work it
out" approach to teaching.
On the first day of the school
year he moved the class into
the lab, a lab we had never
been allowed to use previ-
ously, because of safety and
financial concerns. It was
glorious.
We were issued safety
goggles, rubber gloves, and
vinyl lab aprons. We were
introduced to the world
of Bunsen burners, Petri
dishes, test tubes, formal-
dehyde-drowned specimens,
dissection, and the explosive
power of certain substances
and chemical reactions.
It was only after gradu-
ation that I learned that
this teacher had spent large
amounts of his own money
for materials (and raised
a good deal of the rest). He
had also assumed personal
liability for any problematic
outcomes, all to open up the
lab for the students. He was
convinced and rightfully
so that the best way for
someone to learn is to "work
it out" and enter the expe-
rience and experiment for
oneself.
I don't know whether it
was Confucius, Mark Twain,
Marie Curie, Aristotle, or
some other wise person who
said it, but my teacher prac-
ticed an alternative proverb
to the one, "Life is a class-

tiple books. You can read

room." His proverb was: "I
hear, and I forget. I see, and
I remember. I do, and I un-
derstand."
To be sure, we set off the
fire alarm a few times in the
process of doing. We had
to hit the plunger for the
emergency eyewash station
at least once, when a chlo-
rine experiment didn't go
quite right. But when you
are learning either in life
or the laboratory it's not
always safe and clean.
Sometimes the lab of life
fills with smoke and the
sparks fly in one huge explo-
sion. Sometimes the results
we are working toward are
much more surprising than
we could have ever antici-
pated. Sometimes our learn-
ing is costly and comes with
a load of liabilities. But what
other option is there?
Given the choice, few of
us want to sit still, safe, and
stoic and be told about life.
We want to actually live
life even if it causes our
hands and hearts to shake.
We don't want to be given
theories about what may or
may not work for our lives.
We want to put living into
practice.
We don't want the securi-
ty of notepads and lectures.
We want safety goggles
and fire extinguishers in
case something goes wrong.
Truth told, some things will
go wrong; but there is no
better way to live and no
better way to learn.

I'm no longer by your side,
but there's no need to weep;
I've left sweet recollections
I'm hoping you will keep.


Eternal joy and memories
stay in our hearts forever,
Strengthening our special bond
that parting cannot sever.

And if times of loneliness
bring sorrow and dismay,
Don't despair, for I am there...

Bobcats stay perfect in district with defense-driven victory over Malone


By REID TUCKER
Paxton cruised to a 3-0
victory against visiting Ma-
lone, giving the Bobcats a
2-0 district record in the
young baseball season.

The Bobcats tacked on
two runs early in the game
when Mason McCormick
and pitcher Zach Forehand
crossed the plate via RBIs
from Ryan Gilbert and Kahl-
er Lang, who also got singles
of their own. Paxton added
a final run in the bottom of
the sixth inning when Lang,
who got another single; was
brought home thanks to a


base-hit from Jeremy Jer-
kins.
The only real question
in the Paxton victory was
the performance of Fore-
hand, who had been suffer-
ing from pain in his throw-
ing arm since the last game
against Pensacola Chris-
tian, when he threw just
45 pitches before retiring
from the mound. Neverthe-
less, Forehand threw about
20 pitches more than that
against Malone, enough to
take Paxton through nearly
all of five innings of play. He
recorded the win with three
strikeouts, four walks and


a solitary hit before being
replaced by eighth-grader
Grant Newborn, who had
six Ks and two walks to get
the save.
Paxton coach Jeff Brad-
ley had high praise for his
pitching duo and how well
they meshed with the infield
players.

"It was good to see Zach
come back and throw well
for us tonight after hurting
pretty bad in our previous
game," said Paxton coach
Jeff Bradley. "Grant is a
pretty special player on the
mound. With him pitching


that frees up Zach to be in
the infield and when that
happens we have a pretty
good defensive team."
Malone had a few chanc-
es to score, but failed to
capitalize despite having
two batters be hit by errant
Paxton pitches in the first
inning, two defensive errors
on the Bobcats in the second
inning and loaded bases at
one point in the top of the
fifth when Forehand walked
three batters only a double
play saved the Bobcats from
facing a 2-1 score then.

However, the game was


all Paxton for the duration,
especially on the defensive
front after switching in New-
born, who quickly showed
his prowess on the mound
by pulling the Bobcats out
of a potentially disastrous
situation in the tail-end of
the fifth inning with a time-
ly strikeout as Malone Vick
Breeden came up to bat.
Newborn had two more Ks
in the top of the sixth and
four more in the top of the
next inning to shut out the
visiting Tigers.
Malone pitcher Austin
Lockhart was credited with
the loss. He pitched for


five full innings and three
Ks, two walks and he gave
up four hits. Relief pitcher
Brett Henry had a strikeout
and a walk apiece and gave
up two more hits.
Paxton was led in hitting
by Lang, who was 2-for-3
with two singles, and Mc-
Cormick, whose at-bat per-
formance was identical to
Lang's.

-"We did a lot of things
right tonight," Bradley said.
"This win puts us in the
thick of our district. We're
right back in the mix and we
like our chances."

the first three innings be-
fore being relieved by Rani
Simmons, had two doubles
and two singles while scor-
ing two runs on the night.
Walton tied the game at
2-all when Freeport dropped
a fly ball in centerfield off
of the bat of Raven Motley.
with two outs in the top of
the second inning.
Freeport wasted no time
in retaking the lead as the
Bulldogs plated six runs
with the help of six hits and
a pair of walks for an 8-2 ad-
vantage after two innings of
play.
Walton came -back with
three runs in the top of the
third inning as Kayla Jack-
son and Treasa Herndon
singled and later scored with
the help of a Kayla Chancey
groundout and' singles by
Kristian Ealum and Savan-
nah Albert.
Freeport added five runs
of their own in the bottom of
the third inning for 'a 13-5
lead as Myrick had a key
double in the inning and


Walton committed a pair of
errors to keep the inning go-
ing for the host squad.
Walton scored a run in,
the top of the fourth inning
as freshman Mara Morse
tripled and scored on a sac-
rifice fly by Kaitlyn Green to
cut the lead to 13-6.


Freeport responded with
three runs in the bottom of
the fourth inning as Myrick
hit another double and later
scored to push the lead to
16-6. Simmons then retired
Walton in the top of the fifth
inning to earn a 16-6 win un-
der the 10-run Mercy Rule.


Walton fell to 1-10 with
a 10-0 loss at Pensacola
Catholic on Friday night
while Freeport dropped a
10-5 decision at Chipley on
Friday night but picked up
a 7-5 win against Paxton on
Monday night to improve to
6-6 on the year.

South Walton's baseball team gets 3-2 road victory against Freeport


By REID TUCKER
South Walton's Dustin
Allen recorded the win when
the visiting Seahawks de-
feated perennial rival Free-
port on its own turf with a
final score of 3-2.
Allen pitched the major-
ity of the seven innings of
play, striking out four Free-
port batters, walking five
and giving up five hits. How-
ever, it was Allen's young
team mate Joseph Canalejo
who notched the save on the
evening of Thursday, March
8, as the Seahawks' coach
Nick Borthwick switched
him in on what proved to be
the last Freeport batter of


the game.
South Walton already
had one out when Canalejo
took to the mound but Al-
len had also walked Free-
port substitute Ryder New-
man. Canalejo threw just
two pitches before a fastball
came hard off the bat of the
Bulldog's lead-off hitter,
pitcher Austin Woodard.
What would have otherwise
been a low but hard line
drive to deep right field in-
stead shot straight into the
waiting glove of first base-
man Shafer Martin who
toed his bag to complete the
double play giving the visit-
ing Seahawks a one-run win

5 Sports Facts

1. FSU quarterback Charlie Ward threw for 210 yards
and two touchdowns in leading the Seminoles to an 18-16
victory over Nebraska in the 1994 Orange Bowl to help the
Seminoles wrap up a 12-1 season and the top ranking in the
polls.

2. The Walton Braves opened the 1941 football season
with what is believed to be the longest road trip in school
history, traveling to Princeton, Ky. where they lost 13-6 on
Saturday, Sept. 13 under coach Bob Glenn.

3. Kentucky earned a No. 1 seed for the 11th time in
school history. The Wildcats will play their second and third
round games in Louisville for just the third time in school
history. In its last appearance 'in Louisville, Kentucky de-
feated Morehead State before losing to Ohio State during
the 1961 tournament.

4. Nine BIG EAST teams will be among the 68 that will
compete for college basketball's most coveted prize this sea-
son as the NCAA announced the bracket for the 2012 Men's
Basketball Championship. The nine selections from the BIG
EAST mark the second-highest haul from one conference in
the tournament's history, trailing only the BIG EAST's 11
teams that reached last year's field. That group produced
the conference's sixth NCAA champion when Connecticut
completed a remarkable run through the postseason.

county rival like Freeport,
it's huge for our program,"
Borthwick said. "We com-

the next highest of impor-
tance next to district games
for us. This was a huge win
tonight.
"That's a big monkey off
our back since we've played
several one-run games this
year. That's actually the
first one-run game we've
played that we've come out
on top of."
And a one run game it
was almost from the out-
set though it was Freeport,
now 1-2, who drew first blood
when Dakota Davis got on
base with a single in the
bottom of the first inning.
Davis was driven around
the bases by a combination
of a single from team mate
Collin Myrick and a stolen
base before a wild pitch
gave him the opportunity to
run across home plate for a


1-zip Bulldog lead.
However, that lead
proved short-lived as South
Walton soon returned fire
in the top of the ensuing
inning. Despite Davis put-
ting away a pair of Seahawk
batters for his only Ks in
his four innings of work, he
also gave his only two hits,
one of which proved to be a
homerun over the left field
fence by Alex Astin. Allen
added singled for an RBI,
bringing home Martin, who
got on base after being hit
by an errant pitch.
After Freeport third base-
man Brandon Head doubled
in the bottom of the third,
he was driven in for another
Bulldog run by Davis five
pitches later to make the
score tied at 2-all. However,
South Walton sub Casey
Palmer crossed the plate
on a passed ball in the top
of the next inning to score
a go-ahead run. It turned
out to be the deal-sealer for
the Seahawks as Freeport
proved unable to even up


the score in the remaining
three at-bats.
Astin led the Seahawks
at the plate, going 1-for-2
.with a homerun and walks.
Freeport's top hitters were
Davis, who was 2-for-2 with
two singles, and Head who-


was 1-for-2 with a double.
Davis took the loss for
Freeport on the mound, with
two strikeouts, two hits and
six walks. Allen, who got the
win for South Walton, had
no strikeouts and one walk
but gave up five hits.


SOUTH WALTON TRAILED EARLY IN THE GAME
when Freeport climbed ahead to a one-run lead, but the Se-
ahawks quickly added another run to tie it and eventually
went on to win a 3-2 victory against the Bulldogs. (Photo by

Team Talk with WHS Coach Jimmy Ray Stephens Mar. 19


By ASHLEY AMASON
The community is invited
to the Walton High School
cafeteria to meet the new
Walton High School Athletic
Director and Head Football
Coach Jimmy Ray Stephens
March 19 from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m.
Refreshments will be served
as Stephens, a University of
Florida graduate and former
Pittsburgh Steeler, greets
the public.
After playing in the NFL,
Stephens coached at Wil-
liston High School with a
33-3 overall record, during
which time he led the team
to district, regional, and the
Florida Classic Bowl cham-
pionships, all of which Wil-
liston won.
Stephens then coached
at Fort Walton Beach High
School from 1990-1992,
where he led the school to a


4A state championship, with
players including Danny
Wuerffel, and a 63-7 overall
record.
In 1993, Stephens took
the reins alongside Steve
Spurrier as the offensive line
coach at his collegiate alma
mater, garnering the title of
SEC Champions. Stephens
stayed at the University of
Florida until 2001 as the
running game coordinator.
From 2002-2005, Ste-
phens moved to the Vols,
and in 2004 the University
of Tennessee won the East-
ern Division Championship.
He has since been the of-
fensive line coach at Middle
Tennessee State Univer-
sity where the Blue Raiders
were the 2006 Sunbelt Con-
ference Champions.
WHS Principal Russell
Hughes said of Stephens,


"...I set out to accomplish
with this hire a proven win-
ner. Given his history in high
school and college coaching
he is certainly a proven win-
ner. . I felt our program
could use an instant-impact
kind of leader. This would
include an impact most of
all with our student ath-
letes, but also with our com-
munity [and] our athletic
programs school-wide. With
Coach Stephens I feel we are
getting [not only] an amaz-
ing coach but a visionary for
all programs at WHS. I real-
ly feel blessed and fortunate
to have such an icon in the
coaching ranks at WHS and
in Walton County. I feel we
are certainly the envy of the
Panhandle as I have fielded
many calls already ques-
tioning how we were able to
secure such a hire. Simply


put, he showed great inter-
est in us and consequently
we were interested in him
and felt he was a great fit
for us at this time."
As for the upcoming ath-
letic season, Hughes added,
"My expectations are clear
and mutually accepted by
Coach Stephens. We have
a lot of work to do to get us
where we need to be, and
I fully expect that work to
begin upon his arrival and
all program changes, imple-
mentations in all aspects to
lead the Braves toward be-
ing competitive young men,
which will foster a winning
.attitude with winning re-
sults."
Walton High School staff
and supporters welcome
Stephens and his family and
look forward to a brilliant
athletic season.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012 PAGE 9-B

NWFSC top STEM students celebrated in Orlando


Northwest Florida's
highest achieving science,
technology, engineering
and mathematics (STEM)
students and their peers
from around the state were
honored recently during the
2012 Sunshine State Schol-
ars program.


This is the second year
Gulf Power Company has
sponsored the two-day
awards and recruitment
event that provides a unique
opportunity for Florida's col-
leges and universities to re-
cruit the talents of top stu-
dents.


E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center
presents Birds of Prey March 24
The E.O. Wilson Biophil-
ia Center will present their
very own Lisa Miller reha-
bilitator March 24, at 11
a.m. and 1 p.m.
She will be showing and
discussing several birds that
are under her care. Miller
is very passionate about her
birds and also extremely
knowledgeable.
They are .located at 4956
SR-20, Freeport, FL 32439.
Standard admission rates
apply. For more information
call (850) 835-1824 or www.
eowilsoncenter.org





4-H Yard Sale


Fundraiser


The event was held on
Feb. 16 and 17 and included
an awards lunch, recruit-
ment fair and workshops.
The recruitment fair al-
lowed the students. to talk
with officials representing
more than 40 public and
private higher education in-
stitutions about the oppor-
tunities that are available
at Florida's colleges and
universities.
"These students are our
future, and Gulf Power is
proud to support this pro-
gram that recognizes their
efforts in the STEM areas
and offers them opportuni-


ties to continue their higher
education," said Jennifer
Grove, Gulf Power's Work-
force Development coordi-
nator.
The Florida Energy
Workforce Consortium also
sponsors the event and
partnered with Gulf Power
to recruit students in to the
energy industry.
"Because science, tech-
nology, engineering and
mathematics are the foun-
dation for the majority of
our careers in the energy
industry, we want our best
and brightest in these areas
to know about and consider


careers in this industry and
at Gulf Power," Grove said.
The Scholars event start-
ed as a simple science and
math competition in 1997
and has evolved into a pro-
gram designed to recognize
Florida's top high school
STEM students. The pro-
gram also recruits them to
pursue their post secondary
education in Florida in-
creasing the likelihood that
they will join Florida's fu-
ture workforce. Each school
district selects and names
one 11th grade scholar based
on established criteria.
The Sunshine State


Scholars program is a col-
laborative effort between
the Florida Education
Foundation, the Division of
Florida Colleges, the State
University System and the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation. Event sponsors of
this year's program includ-
ed Gulf Power, Helios Edu-
cation Foundation, Atkins,
Universal Orlando Resort,

Tourism council approves

terms for new TDC building


By DOTTY NIST
Plans for a new South
Walton Tourist Develop-
ment Council (TDC) build-
ing took a step forward on
March 13 with TDC approv-
al, of working terms for the
new building.
The proposed location is
directly south of the U.S.
331/U.S. 98 intersection on
11.9 acres that are part of
the Point Washington State
Forest. The working terms
are for purposes of negotia-
tion between TDC staff and
the Florida Forest Service
for use of the acreage, in a
process that will culminate
with consideration of the
proposal by Gov. Rick Scott


and his Cabinet.
The cost of the facility
has been estimated at $4.5
million
The tourism council ap-
proval, which was unani-
mous, came after consid-
erable input by citizens
attending the meeting.
. Among the terms ap-
proved were that eight acres
of the property would be used
for construction of a new
TDC visitor center, offices
and related infrastructure
which would "collaboratively
serve as a nature center/na-
tured education center, with
a goal of enhancing aware-
ness of the unique natural
resources and habitats that


exist in Walton County..."
The terms call for the prop-
erty to be leased for a period
of 50 years at a cost of $1 per
year.
For residents, a common
criticism was the location,
specifically the use of con-
servation land for ihe build-
ing. Others complained that
the project had come too far
along without sufficient no-
tice and without the public
being properly involved in
the decision-making pro-
cess. Some maintained that
a 1999 settlement agree-
ment in connection with the
county's acquisition of the

Finding his Voice


By ALICIA LEONARD
For those following the
NBC show The Voice, Santa
Rosa Beach resident Geoff
McBride has been a source of
pride for local residents root-
ing for his ascent to the big
leagues of music. Many were
already impressed by his
abilities after catching him
preform in different venues
along 30A in south Walton,
but now, he has amassed an
even larger audience and
although he will not move
forward in the competition
after this week's episode, he
drew some mighty big com-
pliments from some artists
that have already reached
the top of the music moun-
tain.
"That was a true boost
to my spirit," McBride re-
called to the Herald-Breeze
after getting a supportive
tweet from country star
Reba McEntire and stun-
ning music legend Lionel
Richie with his talent in this
week's episode. McEntire
tweeted to the twitter uni-


verse that she was '"Watch-
ing The Voice. I really liked
Jeffi!!! Sara is great too but
I was pulling for Jeff. Con-
grats Sara! Thanks, Reba!"
McBride, a fan of both stars,
said his love of country and
soul music made getting the
kudos from both a memory
he will never forget and a
great confidence booster.
Something that most fans
don't realize that McBride
shared with the Herald-
Breeze is he has fought and
won a long seven-year battle
with health issues, mainly
due to a problem with his
adrenal and thyroid glands.
"I'm a hundred percent now.
But I was sick for a really
long time. I didn't even share
this with The Voice, but my
wife, my family, they helped
me heal, kept me strong.
Helped me get back and I
am, I'm back and ready to
move forward. I'm looking
to the future and playing to
bigger audiences and taking
care of my family."
Right now McBride can


be found at the First Note
Music Hall in Santa Rosa
Beach, but will be releas-
ing a new album soon and is
setting-up the planning that
goes with promoting such an
endeavor. "It's going to be a
throwback to old soul with a
little touch of new flavor. I
really want to give a shout
out to those cats that made
real music."
McBride said he had
nothing but good things to
say about his experience
with The Voice. "It put me
out there. Gave me a tre-
mendous boost to my career
and' put me back in front of
a large audience. It was a
comeback for me and has
helped me in so many ways.
I'm very thankful for the op-
portunities and experience
it has given me."
The singer, father and
husband had some more
thanks to share, First, I
want to say thank you to my
wife, Lisa, and my family,

GEOFF MCBRIDE, recently caught the attention of mu-
sic legends Reba McEntire and Lionel Richie during his per-
formances on the NBC show "The Voice." McBride is looking
forward to entertaining audiences and fans with a new mu-
sic release and venues to showcase his voice and share the
love of his craft. (Photo courtesy of the McBride family and

By BEN GRAFTON
At the South Walton Fire
District (SWFD) Board of
Commissioners meeting on
March 5 Secretary/Trea-
surer Harry Millsaps gave
a brief financial report in-
cluding statements that as
of Feb. 29 the district's cash
status was $4,169,542 and
the impact fee account bal-
ance was $67,000 includ-
ing February receipts of
$14,560.
The board then turned its
attention to the status of the
proposed sale of its CR-395
property, acquired in 1985,
to Ron Romano for $120,000.
Board Attorney Mary Kram-
er provided copies of the
settlement statement to the
board, discussed making a
few revisions to the docu-
ment and said the closing
was scheduled for March 30.
The board approved going


with the settlement state-
ment as presented by Kram-
er.
Fire Chief Rick Talbert
presented his monthly re-
port to the board, comment-
ing on the following items:
In the past month the fire
department responded to
seven fires, answered 216
medical calls, checked out
six hazardous conditions, 19
calls made with good intent
and 31 false alarms for a
grand total of 293 calls. Tal-
bert said this level of activ-
ity was about the same as it
was for the same period last
year.
Talbert introduced the
district's new fiscal officer,
Carol Martin, who started
work on Feb. 13.
Talbert reported that
about 75 people attended
the fire district awards cer-
emony on Feb. 18.


Two of the rewards were
renamed: one to become the
Robert Heighton Lifesaving
Award and the other to be-
come the Timothy Padgett
Exceptional Duty Award.
Talbert noted that Padgett
had given his life for his
country and that his moth-
er, Glenda Padgett, attend-
ed the ceremony.
According to Talbert the
Beach Safety Division is
in the process of providing
orientation and training to
south Walton's 2012 life-
guards. They began cover-
ing the beaches March 10.
Talbert also reported that
the district provided *EMS
support for last month's
Destin 50K run, a fund-rais-
er for Wounded Warriors,
as well as support for the
Seaside Marathon on March
4. In the latter race a man
collapsed close to the finish


line. A deputy who was on
the scene intervened quick-
ly and an EMS team was on
the scene .an estimated two
minutes later. The man was
brought back from cardiac
arrest and transported to
the hospital where it is be-
lieved he underwent open
heart surgery. The district
will obtain additional infor-
mation about the deputy in
order to recognize him at
the next board meeting.
Talbert commented that
the retirement of the dis-
trict's Lt. Kenny McDaniel
on March 1, resulted in two
promotions from within and
created an opening for a
firefighter. Action to fill the
opening started that day.
After a reminder that
there is a vacancy on the
pension board, the board
asked Commissioner Brian
Christenson if he would fill


the position. Following his
agreement to accept, the
board approved a motion
appointing him to the pen-
sion board.
Gilbert reviewed the fact
that the board's audit com-
mittee, which is responsible
for recommending a firm of
certified public accountants
for the district's annual au-
dit, will reach the end of its
term on April 30. The board
approved a motion to con-
tinue the committee for an-
other year. The three voting
members of the committee
are Commissioners Jack
Abbit, Chair; Mike Stange
and Donna Crawford. Mar-
tin will join the committee
as a non-voting member.
Talbert opened a discus-
sion on a petition for waiver
of impact fees that was made

time of year, while still in-
credibly busy, is an easier
transition time given our
major events occur in the
fall. I will be pursuing a po-
sition back in private busi-
ness, requiring a different
time commitment, allowing
family and personal time. I
cannot convey how grateful
I am to have learned about
and worked within Walton
County through our cham-
ber. This business commu-
nity is remarkable. I plan
to continue my community
involvement, just through
other avenues."
Cory Fosdyck, chairman
of the board of directors says
"It has been a true bless-
ing to work with Kitty and
see first hand the impact.
she has had on the Walton
Chamber. Her work ethic
and attention to detail has
allowed the organization to
not only survive but thrive
after the repercussions of
the Great Recession and the
BP disaster. I am excited
for Kitty to tackle new chal-
lenges and happy that she is
now able spend more time
with her family."
"Kitty has been an incred-
ible asset to the Chamber,"
said Bridget Ragan, director
of membership of the Wal-
ton Area Chamber. "Thanks
to her hard work and dedi-
cation, there has been a
tremendous growth in our
membership as well as the


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


implementation of several
new valuable programs and
services that have been ben-
eficial to our members. We
as a team feel blessed to
have had the opportunity to
work with someone as char-
ismatic, driven and fearless
as Kitty. She was a mentor
and a friend and although
we are sad to see her go, we
fully support her decision
one hundred percent."
"The moment Kitty
stepped through the front
door of the Chamber office,
you could feel her energy
and excitement. She has
been such a breath of fresh
air and while her presence
in the office will be greatly
missed, we are thrilled that
she has such a tremendous
opportunity to pursue pro-
fessional and personal in-
terests that are dear to her.
Under Kitty's leadership,
we as a staff have flour-
ished and grown and will
carry forward the commit-
ment and dedication Kitty
brought to our organiza-
tion." said Wendy Radke,
Walton Area Chamber of
Commerce director of mar-
keting and communication.
"I feel fortunate to have
worked with Kitty and
thanks to her knowledge
and determination, we have
experienced remarkable
growth not only on a profes-
sional level but a personal
one as well. She challenged


us all to become a unified
well working team. Dur-
ing her tenure, I was able
to watch the growth and
stability of the Chamber's
financial outlook. We will
not only miss her vivacious
personality, but the value
she brought to this organi-
zation" said Joanna Berni-
er, bookkeeper and execu-
tive assistant of the Walton
Area Chamber.
"In the short time that I
have been with the cham-
ber, I have come to admire
Kitty's leadership and busi-
ness acumen. Even though
we will miss her we wish
her nothing but the best in
her future endeavors," said
Marianne Ireland, informa-
tion specialist.
"Kitty is and always will
be an agent for good change
and continued growth for
Walton County and the
Chamber," said Mitzie Graff,
DeFuniak Springs coordina-
tor.
Whitney said she was
proud of the achievements
reached during her time at
the chamber. "I have enjoyed
the relationships I've devel-
oped with local businesses
in- the community and ap-
preciate the support and en-
couragement I received from
so many wonderful people."
The Chamber board of
directors will be organizing
a committee to identify the
next chamber leader.


BUILDING CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


Government and Education
Center property in effect
barred the 11.9-acre prop-
erty from being used for this
purpose. The council mem-
bers were asked if alterna-
tives had been considered
for the new building.
"Why are you focused like
a laser beam on this par-
ticular piece of conservation
land?" asked Anita Page of
the South Walton Commu-
nity Council. Page asked the
council members to instead
authorize TDC Executive
Director Dawn Moliterno
to look at other property on
which to locate the building,
or to consider retaining the
current location.
Moliterno commented
that there were a number
of "challenges" with the cur-
rent building. One of those
is that it is difficult for tour-
ists entering south Walton
County from the north on
U.S. 331 to access the build-
ing. Since the four-laning
of the segment of the high-
way south of the bay bridge,
there is no curb cut on the
highway providing for ac-
cess to the building from
U.S. 331.
Council member Maurice
Gilbert, who has served on
the tourism council for the
past 12 years, noted that
over that period various
sites had been considered
for a new building and had
been found to be unsuitable.
Gilbert maintained that
there had been considerable
discussion and also public
hearings regarding sites
that were not selected.
Gilbert said the proposed
location was determined to
be a "perfect" one because it
would allow access not only
from the south but from the


east and west. He added
that there are approximate-
ly 22,000 acres in south
Walton County that are
public forest lands. "This is
a small, very strategically
located parcel," he said of
the proposed site.
"We do not think the
settlement agreement is
violated by this," said TDC
attorney Clay Adkinson. He
added that in his opinion the
use of TDC bed tax funds
for construction of the fa-
cility falls within allowable
uses of the funds per state
statutes.- The state attor-
ney general has been asked
for an opinion to clarify the
matter, Adkinson added.
"I personally do not sup-
port a brand new TDC cen-
ter," commented bed tax
collector Eileen McDermott.
She recommended that the
money that would be used
for the building instead 'go
to a cultural or sports center
or arena.
Jacquee Markel ex-
pressed disappointment
that the public had not been
asked if this was what they
wanted. "This is the people's
forest," she said. "I don't
want to see a big monument
to tourism when I come over
that bridge," she said.
There was a suggestion
by one attendee that the use
of parcel be mitigated by
putting other property into
conservation.
Mary Nielson urged the
TDC to put off a decision on
the working terms due to
"significant community ob-
jections and issues brought
forward," including the
question being examined by
the attorney general.
"I don't think you should
do a darn thing today about


that parcel today," she ad-
vised.
"We have been talking
about this for a very long
time," said TDC member
Stephen Hilliard. Hilliard
said he was truly sorry if
the public had felt "left out"
of the process, but that the
proposal to use this parcel
had been under discussion
by the council for over a
year.
Hilliard said the TDC
members see "attracting
and serving" visitors as
their mission, and that they
believe the proposed loca-
tion is the best one from
which to do that. He also
commented on the impor-
tance of educating visitors
to appreciate south Walton

as was envisioned with the
new facility.
The current TDC build-
ing is on property under a
50-year lease to the county
by the Florida Forest Ser-
vices at the same rate pro-
posed for the new lease. The
approved working terms call
for the existing site and the
building to be transferred to
the forest service for offices.
Also approved by unani-

with the facility.
Since the TDC is an ad-

Florida Supreme Court rules on legislative redistricting plans


By DOTTY NIST

The Florida Supreme
Court has declared the re-
districting plan for the Flor-
ida House of Representa-
tives to be constitutionally
valid---but has rejected the
plan for the Florida Senate
as constitutionally invalid.
The Florida Constitution
mandates the redrawing
of Florida House of Repre-
sentatives and Florida Sen-
ate districts every 10 years
in order to equalize their
population numbers. The
Senate had referred to the
House for the drawing of a
redistricting plan for House
districts and the House had
done the same with regard
to the Senate.
The Florida Supreme
Court's task had been to re-
view the redistricting plans,
which had been approved
by the Florida Legislature
on Feb. 9, in order to ensure
the plans' compliance with
the U.S. Constitution and
the Florida Constitution.
The court issued its rul-
ing on March 9, with Justice
Barbara J. Pariente writing
the majority opinion. Jus-
tices Lewis, Quince, LaBar.
ga, and Perry concurred on
the majority decision with
regard to both the House
and Senate plans. Chief Jus-
tice Canady concurred with
the majority opinion that
found the House plan valid,
but dissented from the ma-
jority opinion with regard to
the Senate plan.
"Because it has not been
shown that the Legislature's
choices in establishing the
district lines in the Senate
plan are without a rational
basis under the applicable
constitutionalrequirements,
I would validate that plan,"
Canady wrote.
Like Canady, Justice Pol-
ston concurred with the ma-
jority opinion with regard
to the House plan. He con-
curred with Canady on his
dissenting opinion regard-
ing the Senate plan.
In the majority opinion,
Pariente noted that Amend-
ment 5, the Fair Districts
Amendment, approved by
Florida voters in November
2010, imposed "more strin-
gent requirements" for re-
districting "than the United
States Constitution and
prior versions of the state
constitution."
Pariente explained that
the new standards set by
Amendment 5 were "set
forth in two tiers."
The first tier had called
for districts to consist of
contiguous territory and
had disallowed the draw-
ing of a redistricting plan
or district with the intent to
favor a political party or in-
cumbent, or with the intent
to negatively impact minori-
ties' participation or ability
to elect representatives of
their choice.
Pariente noted that the
second tier had listed three
additional subdordinate re-
quirements that were also


THE FLORIDA Supreme Court.


subordinate to federal law
in the event of a conflict.
These were that districts be
as nearly equal in popula-
tion "as is practicable," that-
they be compact, and that,
where feasible, that they be
based on existing political
and geographical boundar-
ies.
"In this original declara-
tory judgment proceeding,
we must define these new
standards for the first time
since the passage of the
Fair Districts Amendment,"
Pariente wrote.
After Florida Attorney
General Pam Bondi's con-
stitutionally-required filing
of a petition to the court for
a judgment on the residis-
tricting plans, opponents of
the redistricting plans were
able to submit their argu-
ments against the plans.
A brief in opposition to the
plans was submitted by the
League of Women Voters of
Florida, the National Coun-
cil of La Raza, and Common
Cause Florida. Additional
opposing briefs were sub-
mitted by*the Florida Demo-
cratic Party and the city of
Lakeland. ,
The Florida Democratic
Party argued that both the
Senate and House plans had
been drawn with the intent
to favor the Republican Par-
ty and incumbents, that the
plans had the intent to hin-
der minority voting rights,
that the plans violated the
compactness standard, and
that they failed to respect
political and geographical
boundaries. The party main-
tained that the Senate plan
"stretches the bounds of con-
tiguity," and "fails to abide
by the equal population
principle." The League of
Women Voters maintained
that both plans were invalid
due to being drawn with the
intent to favor incumbents
and the Republican Party.
The city of Lakeland made
the latter argument with re-
gard to the Senate plan and
also charged that the Sen-
ate plan was invalid due to
existing political boundaries
not having been utilized in
the redrawing of districts.
After considering briefs
submitted by parties sup-
porting and opposing the
plans and holding oral argu-
ment, a majority of the Flor-
ida Supreme Court justices
determined the House plan
to be- valid and the Senate
plan to be invalid.
According to the ma-
jority opinion, the Senate


had drawn its plan "with
an incorrect understand-
ing of both compactness
and utilizing political and
geographical boundaries."
The opinion also states
that, since no "functional
voting analysis" was un-
dertaken, the Senate's con-
clusions with regard to the
constitutional principle of
minority protection were
"questionable." The opinion
calls the Senate's use of the
standards for compactness
and utilization of existing
boundaries "inconsistent."
"Additionally, we conclude
that the Senate plan is rife
with objective indicators of
improper intent," the major-
ity opinion asserts.
The opinion specifically
finds Senate Districts 1, 3,
6, 9, 10, 29, 30 and 34 to be
"in violation of constitution-
al requirements" and ex-
presses concern with regard
to the city of Lakeland.
"Finally, we declare the
numbering scheme to be in-
valid because it was intend-
ed to benefit incumbents
by making them eligible to
serve for longer periods of
time than they would have
otherwise been eligible to
serve," the opinion reads.
The opinion states, how-
ever, that in the absence of
the Fair Districts Amend-
ment, "there is no question


that the House and Senate
plans would have passed
constitutional muster and
both would have been vali-
dated by this Court."
Two of the Senate dis-
tricts found to be in viola-
tion include parts of Walton
County. District 1, contain-
ing the portion of Walton
County south of the bay and
Intracoastal, is bounded on
its west by the state line,
on its east by the eastern
boundary of Bay County,
on its south by the gulf, and
on its north by the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay, the Intra-
coastal Waterway, the Yel-
low River, and 1-10. District
3, which contains northern
Walton County, is bounded
by the borders of the state on
its western, northern, and
eastern sides and is bound-
ed by the Intracoastal, 1-10,
and the Yellow River on its
eastern side. Renumbered
in the redistricting plan ap-
proved by the Senate, Dis-
trict 1 and District 3 are
currently numbered District
4 and District 2, respective-
ly.
Unlike the Senate plan,
the House plan had elimi-
nated split representation
for Walton County, placing
all of the county in House
District 5, along with Hol-
mes, Washington, and Jack-
son counties.
On March 9, following
the supreme court ruling,
Will Weatherford (R-Wesley
Chapel) House Redistrict-
ing Committee chairman
and speaker-designate,
commented, "I am pleased
the Florida Supreme Court
agrees that the House Re-
districting map meets the
requirements of Florida's
constitution and is legally
compliant. The House map
is the product of an unprec-
edented level of public out-
reach, committee meetings


with members on both sides
of the aisle and a careful
and thorough review of our
constitutional redistrict-
ing requirements. Our map
priorities sound principles
over politics and I'm proud
of my colleagues for produc-
ing a legally compliant map
that accurately reflects the
wishes of residents from
around the state."
House Speaker Dean
Canon (R-Winter Park) is-
sued the following comment:
"We appreciate the thor-
ough review and thoughtful-
ness of the court's response.
Throughout the redistrict-
ing process, the House dem-
onstrated a commitment to
follow the letter of the law,
and I am proud of Speaker-
Designate Weatherford and
all of our Members who
worked so hard to craft this
new map. We understand
the difficulty of the court's
duty to review the applica-
tion of new constitutional
language. We appreciate
the court providing input as
their guidance will provide
a great deal of help moving
forward."
Regarding the court rul-
ing, Florida Democratic
Party Chairman Rod Smith
stated, "Today's ruling is
a victory for the people of
Florida. This ruling con-
firms what we had antici-
pated, that the Senate map
violated Fair Districts. We
applaud the court for step-
ping in to implement the
will of the voters of Florida.
We look forward to get-
ting down to the business
of drawing maps that com-
ply with the expectations of
the people, as expressed in
these constitutional amend-
ments."
Senate Democratic Lead-
er Nan Rich (D-Weston) said
in a March 9 statement:
"The ruling by the Florida


Supreme Court rejecting as
unconstitutional the pro-.
posed Senate district lines
underlines all of the warn-
ings which went unheeded
during the redistricting
committee hearings and
the ultimate vote. The Su-
preme Court saw the same
troubling issues of discrimi-
nation and favoritism as
the Senate Democrats who
voted against these maps,
and which go against every
fiber of the Constitution's
new anti-gerrymandering
amendments overwhelm-
ingly passed by the majority
of Florida voters."
Rich added, "I urge the
Senate, as it returns in a
special session to redraw
the rejected maps, to care-
fully heed that will, and
submit fairer maps as the
voters demanded."
In its majority opinion,
the Florida Supreme Court
directed the Senate to re-
draw the eight districts de-
clared constitutionally in-
valid with attention to, the
state minority voting pro-
tection provision and the
standards of "equal popula-
tion, compactness, and uti-
lization of existing political
and geographical boundar-
ies." The court also directed
the legislature to examine
the feasibility of utilizing the
city of Lakeland's municipal
boundaries "after applying
the standards as defined by
this Court."
Additionally, the court
called for the renumbering
of the Senate districts "in
an incumbent-neutral man-
ner."
"No motion for rehearing
shall be entertained. This
case is final," the opinion
noted.
The opinion may be

FDOT asks BCC to


reconsider toll for


bridge funding


. THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT)
has asked the Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) to reconsider
the option of a toll bridge to
raise funds for a new bay
bridge on U.S. 331, and has
expressed its willingness to
commit additional funds to
widen the corridor from the
bridge north to Interstate 10.
In a letter sent to Commis-
sion Chairman Scott Bran-
non just before the BCC's
March 13 regular meeting,
FDOT's District 3 Secretary
James T. Barfield briefly
detailed the FDOT Trans-
portation Work Program's
decrease of $11.7 billion in
funding since 2006, "due to
reductions in revenues uti-


lized for funding transpor-
tation projects," a reduction
"compounded by the lack of
availability of federal trans-
portation funding."
The FDOT letter goes on
to reaffirm its commitment
of $102 million toward the
$177 million needed for the
bridge. Citing a Toll Feasi-
bility Study made in Sep-
tember 2011, the FDOT
believes that 30 years of
collecting a $2 toll (confined
to the newly built bridge)
would cover the $75 mil-
lion needed to complete the
bridge. "Once the debt has
been retired, the tolls would
be removed," states the let-
ter.
The letter adds that a
Toll and Revenue Study is
underway to "evaluate traf-

LEAD INVESTIGATOR BILLY DOZIER takes time to review facts with a victim.




Investigators tackle credit


card fraud in south Walton


Approximately 20 vic-
tims gathered at the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
Santa Rosa substation last
Friday to meet with inves-
tigators regarding a recent
string of credit card frauds.
The WCSO investiga-
tion began after numerous
complaints had been filed
by citizens in which their
credit card numbers were
being stolen and used in
transactions outside of Wal-


ton County. Most of these
thefts have occurred in the
past few weeks in the south
Walton area.
Investigators explained
to victims how financial
crimes are handled, an-
swered victim's questions,
and assisted victims with
filing the appropriate pa-
perwork. Victims were also
educated about how these
criminals are committing
these crimes.


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office will be assisted
by the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement with
these cases, given the num-
bers were used in various
places throughout the state.

The investigation is active
and ongoing. Anyone who is
a victim of credit card fraud
should contact the Walton
County Sheriffs Office at
(850) 892-8111.

From "No Tax, No Toll" signs that are up all
over Walton County, to LED signs, Google ads, and
newspaper inserts, the advertising world captures
everyone's attention and even gets us to purchase
the products they are advertising. But how many
of us really pay attention to ads that constantly
bombard us, and do they actually manipulate our
spending habits and activities?


How many 'times have
you been on the interstate
and for no apparent reason,
get the craving for some
Stuckey's Pecan Log? Or
how many times have you
been standing in line at the
supermarket, saw a two-for-
one special, and ended up
buying 20 cans of English
peas, and you don't even
like the little slimy veggies?


For many, advertising
plays no part in their pur-
chasing or buying habits.
They simply choose to ig-
nore all the ads, the flashing
billboards, and inserts, and
do their own research and
bargain hunting.
But for hundreds of mil-
lions of Americans, they can't
make a move, or a purchase,
without hearing or seeing


what the media tells them
to purchase, or to do. Many
compare the act to, "leading
the lambs to slaughter."
Advertising agents
around the world work end-
less hours to create ads
that will not only be eye-
catching, serious, or funny,
but thought-provoking and
mind boggling. From flash-
ing lights and supermodels,
to speeding cars and talking
ducks, ad execs work count-
less hours and conduct nu-
merous research groups, in
order to find just the right
presentation to not only
impress their paying client,
but to get the viewing audi-
ence to buy, attend, or par-
ticipate.
Who can forget the famous
1980s Hardees commercial
with the two elderly women,
staring at a huge bun, and
a little slice of hamburger
meat. The phrase, "where's
the beef?" became an iconic
saying that could be heard
from the schoolroom, to the
frat house, and from the
boardroom to the family
kitchen.
But advertising has been
around much longer than

television has existed. It's
been around from the early
days of print, where the lat-
est undergarments for wom-
en were being advertised, to
the latest Victoria's Secret
live television show show-
ing all they offer to women
- while showing hardly any7
thing at all.
Advertising has played
major rolls in elections,
Hollywood movie releases,
product placement, and oth-
er means of "educating the
people," about the product,
or event. Besides the hun-
dreds of billions of dollars
that are spent annually on
advertising and marketing,
companies, businesses, poli-
ticians, and the world of en-
tertainment all rely on our
reaction to their ad place-
ment and how we respond.
But how many of us actu-
ally buy, or live, by what we
see in ads, or being thrown
at us on television? Do we
buy and do what we are told
to do, without ever question-
ing why, or at what cost?
And all the while, market-
ing and advertising gurus
are targeting the most in-
fluential group of viewers,
children and teenagers.
The influence of adver-
tising on our lives,, for both
children and adults, has
changed over the years. In
the early days, advertising
for toys and other products
for children was primarily
targeted toward parents and
their message was direct.
Today however, things have
changed. Marketing mes-
sages are more sophisticat-
ed, more pervasive, and are
aimed directly at "hooking"
kids at a very early age.
There have always been
advertisers who market to
children. Clearly products
such as toys and sugar-filled
cereals have been around
for decades. Just as today,
those who made such prod-
ucts developed ad cam-
paigns to promote them to


an interested audience.
Many years ago, howev-
er, it was a bit easier to rec-
ognize what was an adver-
tisement and what wasn't.
Advertisements were lim-
ited to displays in a store,
a newspaper ad, or a brief
spot on TV or radio.
Some merchandising was
creeping in during the '60s
with Beatles lunchboxes
and similar items. Today,
however, half of the clothing
that kids wear includes an
advertisement of one sort or
another.
Backpacks, shoes, and
many accessory items also
display the most popular
brands for a child's peers
to see. The influence of ad-
vertising is increasingly far-
reaching.
Today, ads are much
more pervasive and less rec-
ognizable as a sales pitch.
For instance, while eating
at a favorite child-oriented
fast food restaurant, a child
may receive a toy. That toy
may also be tied to a movie,
a cartoon, a video game, or
to a website that offers ad-
ditional games, toys, and re-
lated products.
Books, clothing, acces-
sory items, backpacks, cell
phones, scooters and more
are all tied to the same
theme. There is a seemingly
limitless number of prod-
ucts that are then presented
to the child.
Advertising is no longer
limited to store displays,
radio and TV commercials,
and newspaper ads. Some
children' literature is de-
veloped for the primary pur-
pose of marketing.
Movies, cartoons, video
games and more are also
developed for the purpose of
marketing additional prod-
ucts. Some schools even al-
low advertising on books,
educational posters, on the
sides of buses, and more.
As we are bombarded
with ads from every direc-


tion, even as adults these
games, movies, children's
meals, websites etc. are sel-
dom recognized as the mere
marketing methods that
they are. With increased
prevalence and subtlety, the
influence of advertising has
grown enormously.
There are a number of
studies that support the
idea that advertising is
particularly effective with
children due to the fact they
don't have the same criti-
cal thinking/judgment as
an .adult. But we all know,
that adults are just as per-
suaded by flashy cars zoom-
ing across the airways, and
slightly-clothed women who
are advertising a dishwash-
ing detergent.
No matter if your child
watches 10 hours of televi-
sion a day, or the man of the
house reads Outdoor Liv-
ing from cover to cover,- ads
are being placed on just the
right pages, and between
the perfect Saturday morn-
ing cartoons. So the next
time you have to have that
perfect child's Christmas
gift, or the latest in Xbox
games, thank an advertis-
ing guru, or marketing mo-
gul, for placing that ad.
If you don't believe in the
power of advertising or mar-
ket placement, then turn off
the television, stop reading
a magazine, or newspaper,
don't listen to the radio, don't
use the Internet and simply
stay inside your home with
the windows and doors shut.
You will learn very fast that
without any advertisement,
or marketing, the world
would simply quit spinning,
the economy would tank,
stores and shops would close
their doors, millions would
become unemployed, and
life as we know it, would
come to an end.
Well, at least that what
the ad said that I saw on
television a few minutes
ago!

DFS City Council approves interior demolition

of former Health Department building


By REID TUCKER
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council voted unani-
mously to award a contract
for the demolition of the in-
terior of the former Health
Department building to
eliminate pervasive surface
contamination of mold and

mildew.
The former Health De-
partment building, located
on U.S. 83, has been long
planned as a potential future
site for DeFuniak Springs
Police Department head-
quarters, but widespread
mold and mildew problems
inside the vacated structure


prevented any plans from
going ahead until now. In-
mate labor was previously
considered for the project,
but concern over health
risks and the ability of city
crews to supervise inmates
led the Council to seek a
bid for the contract. The
project includes gutting the


interior of entire structure
plus the complete demoli-
tion of a 2,500-square-foot
addition on the south side
of the building that studies
have shown was one of the
sources of the water leaks
that eventually led to the
mold contamination.
Significant cost savings


were at play in the Coun-
cil's decision when it voted
at the regularly scheduled

Freeport to participate in


Waterfronts Florida Program


By BEN GRAFTON
The Freeport Planning
Board meeting of March
7 opened with a presenta-
tion by Donna Free, Senior
Health Educator, of the Wal-
ton County Health Depart-
ment. According to Free,
although the department
does give immunization
inoculations to adults and
children, most of the service
is directed to income eligible
residents who either do not
have health insurance or are
under-insured. The depart-
ment sponsors a number of
educational programs. In-
i-. cluded are the Girl's Night
...... Out program, scheduled for
March 20, which teaches hy-
,; giene, health, nutrition and
'* tobacco prevention subjects
to fifth to eighth-grade girls
ICTAREA and their moms. Other edu-


national programs include
"No Smoking" classes in De-
Funiak Springs and Sacred
Heart Hospital in Santa
Rosa Beach and.the "Cook-
ing for Kids" program which
teaches preparation of nu-
tritious economical meals.
Free also passed out an
information packet that
contained statistical health
data for Walton County.
The data highlights areas of
concern which include heart
, health problems and the in-
cidence of certain types of
cancer among residents.
Following the Health
Department presentation
attention turned to a bud-
ding effort to participate
in the Waterfronts Florida
Partnership Program. The
partnership includes the
National Oceanic and At-


mospheric Administration,
the Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion's Florida Coastal Man-
agement Program and the
Florida Department of Eco-
nomic Opportunity. Water-
fronts Florida's goals are
hazard mitigation, cultural
and natural resource pres-
ervation, public access and
economic revitalization.
Julie Dennis, Planning
Analyst for Waterfronts
Florida, presented a power
point overview of the pro-
gram that included informa-
tion about communities that
are already actively par-
ticipating in the program as
well as a review of specific
areas in which support for
the community is available.

Mossy Head Water Works celebrates


completion of $4.6 million expansion project


By REID TUCKER
Mossy Head Water
Works, Inc. commemorated
the completion of a $4.6 mil-
lion water system upgrade
project six-and-a-half years
in the making with an open-
house celebration.
The massive overhaul
project came via finan-
cial assistance in the form
of a $2,840,000 loan and
$1,841,500 grant from the
U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's Rural Development
program. Community resi-
dents, employees' friends
and families, and state and
local officials all came out for
the celebration and the ac-
companying barbecue lunch,
held Thursday, March 8, at
the Water Works' office, lo-
cated on County Highway
1087.
An open-house tour fol-
lowed lunch and those in
attendance were invited to
have a look at the revamped
facilities, which include a
new safe-room capable of re-
sisting 350 mph-plus winds
complete with an integrated
computer control station for
all wells and tanks in the wa-
ter system, new office space,
and a conference room. Also,
more than 6,000 square feet
of freshly paved asphalt for
parking lots and driveways
as well as new storage and
shop buildings for the wa-
ter works' more expensive
equipment round out some
of the improvements.
Despite these more obvi-
ous renovations to the exist-
ing Water Works facilities,
which grew by 1,150 square
feet for the office and 1,730
square feet for storage, com-
-pany president Tom Ter-


rell said the most substan-
tial and important changes
brought about by the project
are buried underground.
More than 570,000 feet of
new water lines is joined by
three new wells and two ele-
vated storage tanks, as well
as upsizing 28 miles of dis-
tribution lines and the addi-
tion of a 200,000-gallon stor-
age tank to balance water
pressure with the end result
of balancing water pressure
throughout the system. Fur-
thermore, the completion of
the project has the potential
to expand the system's max-
imum capacity well above
its current 1,310-customer
base.
Terrell said the increase
in capacity and the fact
that now 92 percent of all

THE $4.6 MILLION WATER SYSTEM EXPANSION included new office and storage

dies in Walton
County
accident

A Panama City Beach
motorist was killed March
11 on County Road 81
(Black Creek Road). The
Florida Highway patrol
(FHP) report stated that
Jeffrey Scott Burroughs, 52,
of Panama City Beach was
traveling east on CR-81,
and entered into a northerly
curve. Witnesses reported
that the vehicle drifted off
the paved road and onto
the south shoulder, where it
struck a culvert and began
to overturn. Burroughs was
thrown from the vehicle and
landed on the south shoul-
der of the road.
Burroughs was pro-
nounced dead of his inju-
ries. The FHP report stated
that he was not wearing a
seatbelt. An investigation is
pending into whether or not
alcohol was a factor.

Iran 2012?

By BRUCE COLLIER
To paraphrase Trotsky, you may not be interested in
Iran, but Iran is interested in you. At least, Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants it that way. Our
country is preoccupied with the coming presidential elec-
tion, and then there's that Hunger Games film opening, so
the recent White House summit between Netanyahu and
President Obama might have had to yield precious space
in the national mind. Still, just when it's time to choose a
president (or retain the current one), war is in the air.
Iran is working on building nuclear weapons. Israel
doesn't want that. Obama gave Netanyahu assurances that
we're against it, too, but he isn't ready to attack Iranian
nuclear sites. Yet. Netanyahu maintained Israel's right to
take that initiative itself, but didn't tell Obama when. Or
if.
Netanyahu then went home, and ordered a fatal strike
against a Gaza militant leader (a sort of appetizer), which
led to a counterattack of rockets against southern Israel.
Business as usual in that part of the world, you might say,
but the pressure is mounting. Even if the majority of Israe-
lis are against going it alone against Iran's nuke facilities
(meaning, without us) it's resolving itself into one of those
questions that presidents pray they don't have to face in
election years: war or not?
It 'would be a new war, not just ramped-up military ac-
tivity in an existing operations area. It's been grimly simple
since 9/11 who's next on the list? Iraq, Afghanistan, and
all the petty and not-so-petty terrorist leaders we've been
scooping up or picking off. We're so used to American mili-
tary presence worldwide that a president can be lauded as
a peacemaker just by shifting troops from one theatre of
operations to another.
Put in its best light, Obama's insistence on bringing Iran
to heel by diplomacy and sanctions gives him the air of a
prudent statesman. Put in its worst light, he's a politician
running for re-election who doesn't want to get the country
in a new war while asking for another term. Either way, he
and Netanyahu are presenting the Iranians the ones that
are making policy right now with a divided front. As far as
Iran'believes; if the Americans won't help Israel, why not
just keep up the nuclear preparations for as long as they
can? Maybe by the time both the U.S. and Israel are fe'd up
talking and ready to strike, Iran will have nuclear capabil-
ity. Or Netanyahu and Obama will be gone from office, so
the gamesmanship can begin again.
Cynics observe that, whatever downside wars have,
they're good for the economy. By that reasoning, Americans
ought to be wallowing in prosperity. This election is likely
going to focus on the economy don't they all? Whoever
challenges Obama will be able to hit him hard on it. Rightly
so, because whatever state the economy is in, the president
answers for it. But there had better be some discussion, and
hard questions, about making yet another major military
commitment.
John F. Kennedy famously pledged that Americans would
pay any price and bear any burden to assure the survival
and success of liberty. That message seems to have been
* changed. Now we're toTo it's every price and every burden.


Editor:
I would like to share my thoughts on the proposed sales
tax increase. wE are a retired couple and did not receive
a raised for three years. We finally receive don this year.
Trying to make a rational decision about the proposed tax
increase, I reviewed how much money in sales tax we have
paid this last year. I included things such as clothing, house-
hold items and restaurants. Based on our spending and the
half-percent increase, we will be paying an additional $600.
a year. For TEN years. This $6,000 for a bridge that I will
only travel on, maybe, three times a year.
Sincerely

Editor:
Our fourth grade classes at Maude Saunders Elemen-
tary are learning about recycling and cleaning up the envi-
ronment. We are concerned about plastic grocery bags and
polystyrene containers that pollute our environment, spe-
cially Florida.
Florida needs to have a ban on plastic grocery bags and
polystyrene trays. These items are "a large source of pollu-
tion in our. state's environment and marine areas. Plastic
grocery bags litter our walkways, streets, waterways, and
beaches. Our landfills are running over with waste from
these items. Our state needs to be protected.
We need to get the word out that polystyrene containers
don't degrade, but litter our community. These containers,
trays, egg cartons, hot and cold cups, and meat trays can be
in our landfills for thousands of years. Some people burn
plastic bags and polystyrene containers. The chemicals
from burning pollute the air and can cause health problems.
Plastic grocery bags can kill marine animals because they
think it is food floating in the water. For example, some sea
turtles think the bags are jellyfish. They engulf the bags
and can't digest them. Eventually they die from this.
Several ways that we feel these problems could be ad-
dressed are:
Implementing a ban on plastic grocery bags which would
save money and oil;
Utilizing cloth recyclable shopping bags instead of plas-
tic grocery bags which could reduce the number of bags lit-
tering our environment:
Organizing a pick-up litter program which could clean up
the environment and encourage others to join the cause;
Advertising ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle polysty-
rene containers which would keep our state and planet
clean and safe;
Promoting a ban on polystyrene containers which would


eliminate waste in landfills;
Investigating ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle which
would keep our state and planet clean and safe.
We propose a challenge to all State Representatives and
Senators to join us in getting the word out that Florida's
citizens will not tolerate the ongoing destruction of our land
and waterways from plastic grocery bags and polystyrene
containers. Our state should be attracting tourists and
businesses, not collecting this kind of litter, which can be
found almost everywhere. We need you to support and pass
laws that will put a ban on these products.
You may ask, "Why do we need this ban on plastic gro-
cery bags and polystyrene containers?" Our reply, "Why do
we litter? Is it just for fun of it, or do we want to destroy
Earth?"
Sincerely,
Tracey Mishko, and
Maude Saunders Elementary Fourth Graders.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012


FAGOT Il t


L E O E ITOR


Editor,
After having received another unwanted e-mail from
the so-called DeFuniak Free Press, I feel compelled to re-
spond.
Rarely have I been exposed to such vile nastiness. This
blog by a few desperate people is a blight on this wonderful
community. It is nothing more than a forum to attack the
city council, especially the newest.members. It appears to
be driven by a small group of people, including some former
city employees, who are unhappy that their taxpayer-fund-
ed gravy train ran out. Thank goodness for all of us that it
did.
Their latest tempest-in-a-teapot alleges that Councilman
Ron Kelley secretly changed the meeting minutes. That's
so ridiculous, yet it shows the lengths these anonymous
bloggers will go to in order to try to smear the character of
someone they don't like. Like all of their smear campaigns,
this one doesn't hold up under the light of day.
First of all, I have known Ron Kelley for years and his
honesty, integrity and love for this community is above re-
proach.
Second, I daresay he knows more about the Sunshine
Laws and record laws than any of the people trying to smear
him, since he was a radio news reporter and newspaper edi-
tor in this community for almost 20 years. I also know that
he is an expert on punctuation and grammar and is a stick-
ler for getting it right. I saw him pick apart the minutes the
previous clerk presented, which may be what is driving this
"controversy." The new clerk, Ms. Laird, seems to be doing
much better.


Third, for him to be guilty of this accusation would re-
quire a conspiracy on the part of everyone at City Hall,
including the city manager, city clerk, the administrative
staff and all the department heads and all of the news re-
porters who attend every meeting.
Do you see how the smear campaign begins to fall apart
when you look closely at it?
Also, what sinister things are supposed to have occurred
during the city council meetings in front of a roomful of peo-
ple and news media that must be changed? The answer, of
course, is nothing.
Because this vast conspiracy would only hold up until
the first person or first reporter who was at a meeting read
the minutes and found something in there that didn't take
place which has not happened. The reason it hasn't hap-
pened is because the .minutes have not been changed by
Mr. Kelley oranyone else, and because there is no silly con-
spiracy at city hall.
As for this Free Press group, I see why they hide their
identities so carefully. If the general public knew the names
of these people, they'd run them out of town. My advice to
these bloggers is get a job. Find something useful and
worthwhile to do with your time instead of slandering good
people who are laboring in thankless jobs to do something
good for this city and its people.
Sincerely,


Keith Rowland
DeFuniak Springs, FL


I LETTER :, THEi S EI IS


Editor,
Last summer the citizens of DeFuniak Springs rallied
against the rezoning of the Clary Glenn Funeral Home to
C-1 and Glenn's written intention to install a crematory
adjacent to the Historic District. Following a costly effort
by the Stop Neighborhood Crematories citizen group plus
the city's costs incurred to hold numerous public nieetings,
Mr. Glenn's application was denied and the City Ordinance
repealed the C-1 zoning exception allowing crematories.
What many neighbors might not realize is that after all
of these events, the Clary-Glenn Funeral Home's attorney
drafted a letter to the City Council stating that Glenn was a
certified funeral home operator and this fact "gave him the
right to operate a crematory." It further stated their intent
to go against'the city's ruling and install a crematory. It is
my understanding the city's attorney responded in kind. At
this time there are no smoke stacks on the roofs of the De-


Funiak Springs location but that could change according
to Glenn.
The Herald's Ben Grafton reports that Glenn spoke at
the Walton Area Chamber Breakfast on March 2. Grafton
states.Glenn spoke of Cremation Jewelry options a maca-
bre thought and then informed the crowd of renovations
made to their DeFuniak Springs location and "a work in
progress is to add a crematorium in DeFuniak Springs or in
Freeport." If Joel Glenn can boast to a crowd of 50 people
his intention is to build a crematory in DeFuniak, he is ei-
ther delusional or devious in his business dealings with the
city. This firing across the city's bow should wake up our
Council, Planning Committee and citizens that this battle
has not ended.

LET ER O THEEITOR


Editor:
To the citizens of Walton County and editor of the De-
Funiak Herald:
The Catholic Church is not bluffing. Fifty-three percent
of Americans think abortion is wrong and are not willing to
pay for it with our taxes. Earlier this week, Francis Cardi-,
nal George of the archdiocese of Chicago sent a message to
parishioners in Barack Obama's home town that imposition
of the HHS mandate to fund and facilitate contraception,
abortifacients, arid sterilization would force the Catholic
Church to close its hospitals, clinics, schools, and all other
organizations that would otherwise have to comply. "Two
Lents from now," Cardinal George warned, "unless some-
thing changes, the page [listing Catholic organizations] will
be blank."
Can you imagine the dearth of health care in our home if
Sacred Heart Hospital closed it doors? It is going to happen
unless you write your congressman and have them repeal
the HHS mandate in Obamacare.
The Catholic Church has perhaps the most extensive
private health-care delivery system in the nation. It oper-
ates 12.6 percent of hospitals in the U.S., according to the
Catholic Health Association of the U.S., accounting for 15.6
percent of all admissions and 14.5 percent of all hospital
expenses, a total for Catholic hospitals in 2010 of $98.6


billion. Whom do these hospitals serve? Catholic hospitals
handle more than their share of Medicare (16.6 percent)
and Medicaid (13.65) discharges, meaning that more than
one in six seniors and disabled patients get attention from
these hospitals, and more than one in every eight low-in-
come patients as well. Almost a third (32 percent) of these
hospitals are located in rural areas, where patients usually
have few other options for care.
The Catholic Church runs over 7,500 primary and sec-
ondary education schools in the U.S. (where over a third
of students are non-Catholics), educating more than 2.5
million students. Thanks to a near-blanket moratorium
on vouchers, taxpayer money doesn't get used in teaching
these students in a system that has a 99 percent gradua-
tion rate and a 97 percent success rate at placing students
in college. Based on an average student cost of $8,000 in
public schools, Catholic schools save taxpayers about $20
billion dollars a year.
We are not bluffing, We will close our schools and the
hospitals before permitting Obama to make our moral deci-
sions for us. Please pass this message on to your Christian
friends.
.Col. Robert Fullenkamp
DeFuniak Springs


I LETTER TO T HE EDITOR I


Editor:
I write concerning the passage by the Florida house of
HB7129, a bill permitting Florida State University and the
University of Florida to require three to four extra classes
for incoming freshmen by disallowing college credits stu-
dents earned in high school, including advanced placement
and usual enrollment programs. The bill is supported by
the university presidents as a way to force students to take
classes intended to change their "critical thinking" skills.
Just think about it, if your dual-enrolled high school kid
takes the exact same classes as your community college kid
and they both then go to UF or FSU, you HS kid doesn't get
credit.
It's the brighter and motivated kids that are taking AP
and dual enrolltnent classes, it's sad the legislators have
so little regard for the efforts so many good students have
put forth to perform in these programs. And what will
these kids be taught by the legislature? They'll learn that


the bargain that was offered and accepted, college credit
for a certain level of performance, has been reneged on by
the system. They'll learn their hard work, travel time and
sacrifice of other activities was wasted. They'll learn their
hard work, travel time and sacrifice of other activities was
wasted. They'll learn that it's probably a better choice to
not try so hard in the first place, it's easier to get A's while
bored out of their minds in regular classes or just not excel
at all, why bother?
I suspect these university presidents are more interest-
ed in "critical funding" than "critical thinking" and this is
purely a play to increase revenues. If Florida AP classes
and community colleges are so poor that the experiences
gained are worthless at the university level than we have a
lot bigger problems than "critical thinking"...
