Officials reschedule


bridge referendum,


put toll back on table


By DOTTY NIST
Recent assurances from
the state Department of
Transportation (DOT) to
county commissioners have
resulted in some rethink-
ing by commissioners on the
U.S. 331 bay bridge issue.
The major north-south


highway is the county's only
evacuation route for the area
south of the bay. Efforts by
the county to get U.S.. 331
widened in its entirety up
to the state line have been
ongoing since the 1960s or
earlier.

Freeport: construction


recovery underway


By BEN GRAFTON
The proposal by the
Windswept development to
install a 1,000 square-foot
modular office trailer at the
northeast corner of the in-
tersection of SR-20 and U.S.
331 was discussed again at
the Freeport City Council
meeting of March 13.
According to City Plan-
ner Latilda Henninger two
different site plans have
been proposed. The Coun-
cil expressed concern about
both the potential for traf-
fic accidents at the site and
problems that may arise
with hookup to the sewage
system. Suggestions were
made for signage to keep
traffic from cutting across
the U.S. 331 traffic lanes.
The Council tabled the pro-
posal pending receipt of a
picture of the trailer and
information on landscaping
and appearance of the prop-
erty.
Henninger referred to her
annual report for 2010-2011


noting that the number of
applications for building
permits has risen from 105
in 2006 to 112 in 2007 and
113 in 2011. This exceeds
the number reviewed in the
residential boom. In 2007,
there were 3,183 residential
units under review. In 2012,
to date, some 927 units are
in the planning stages. In
2010 there were 2 pre-appli-
cation conferences for new
development. In 2011 there
were 8 and now, in 2012,
there have already been
eight pre-application confer-
ences.
Engineer Cliff Knauer
reported that both Century
Link and the Department of
Transportation (DOT) have
taken the position that if con-
struction equipment putting
in the North Bay project wa-
ter main hits the abandoned
Century Link cable, not to
worry about it. The contrac-
tor putting in the new water
main is concerned about dig-
ging the cable up and then
having additional costs from


having to clean up the de-
bris. City Attorney Clayton
Adkinson suggested that if
the contractor accumulated
costs that are incurred by
cleaning up the cable, then
the city could notify DOT
and Century Link and try
to help collect the costs for
him. Knauer also expressed
concern that residual cable
would cause difficulty in the
future by giving false read-
ings to efforts to identify the
locator wire installed with
the water line.
Councilman Earl King
said, "we can't afford to
stop. We have to go on with
it." The Council agreed the
project work will be contin-
ued.
Engineer Charlie Cotton
reported that all of the sub-
division work for the North
Bay water line project is
complete. The project is ex-
pected to be complete by
April 25.

DENISE MARIE BOZARTH was arrested last week on a
charge of murder.


WCSO assists

in apprehending

murder suspect


Last week, the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) assisted the Flori-
da Department of Law En-
forcement (FDLE) and the
Monroe County Sheriffs. Of-
fice (MCSO) in apprehend-
ing Denise Marie Bozarth,
39, of Paxton, for murder.
The alleged murder took
place in Key Largo in 2007.
The victim was the suspect's
husband, Edward Bozarth.
Though reportedly an early
suspect, Bozarth had never


been arrested, and the case
was declared inactive in
2010. Bozarth has report-
edly confessed to the killing,
following an interview with
Monroe County Sheriffs in-
vestigators.
Walton County investiga-
tors were asked to assist in
serving the warrant for Bo-
zarth's arrest. Bozarth was
transported and booked into
the Walton County Jail. She
will be transferred to Mon-
roe County to face charges.

Dead River Landing project nears completion


By JEFFREY POWELL
Thanks in large part to
a $175,000 grant from the
Northwest Florida Water
Management District the
Dead River Landing has re-
ceived several much need-
ed improvements recently
and is scheduled to re-open
within the week. A popular
fishing and hunting access
to the Choctawhatchee Riv-
er, Dead River Landing has
been used by locals and visi-
tors alike for many years.
During hunting season it is
common to have numerous
campers at the site.
"This project has im-
proved access for both resi-
dents and visitors alike,"
said Preble-Rish Project En-
gineer Cliff Knauer. "It will
be much easier to launch
and retrieve boats with the
new loading dock. Also, the
paved parking area will
eliminate the need for the
county to continue hauling
dirt to the site which erodes
into the water. This project
is environmentally sound
and will save the county
money in the long run."
Included in the project
are eight dedicated camp-
ing spots, improvements to
the boat ramp and parking
area which includes handi-
cap parking and storm-
water retention. There will
also eventually be an area
dedicated to bank fishing for


those without a boat. Addi-
tionally there will be several
primitive camping spots.
"The Dead River Landing
project is part of a continued
partnership with the North-


west Florida Water Manage-
ment District in an effort to
improve the citizens' access
to the areas waterways,"
said Walton County Com-
missioner Scott Brannon.


"This is part of the board's
commitment to enhance,
increase and improve ac-
cess to the area's natural
resources."
Dead River Landing is


also to become part of the
proposed Choctawhatchee
River Paddle trail. The
landing is located at the end
of Dead River Road north of
Bruce.

USDA warns of



fraudulent letters


United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture (USDA)
officials learned late Friday
afternoon, March 16, 2012,
that fraudulent letters are
being sent by FAX to indi-
viduals and businesses in
at least four states. The let-
ters purportedly come from
a USDA procurement officer
and seek personal informa-
tion. These letters are false
and in no case should a re-


cipient respond with per-
sonal and financial informa-
tion.
The fraudulent letters
bear USDA's logo and seal
and are signed by an indi-
vidual identified as "Frank
Rutenberg" using a title of
"Senior Procurement Offi-
cer." Letters have been re-
ceived by FAX in Alabama,
Nebraska, Pennsylvania
and Wisconsin, but may


have also been sent to other
states. Recipients should
not respond and should not
supply the requested infor-
mation. USDA is investi-
gating this matter through
the Office of the Inspector
General. If anyone suspect
theyhave received such a
letter or have questions con-
tact USDA at: procurement.

Highly Erodible Land and

Wetland Provisions reminder


Daina Odom, executive
director of United States-
Department of Agriculture's
(USDA) Farm Service Agen-
cy (FSA) in Walton County
reminds landowners and op-
erators that in order to re-
ceive payments from USDA,
compliance with Highly
Erodible Land (HEL) and
Wetland Conservation (WC)
provisions are required.
"Some producers may
have decided to break out
new land, clear trees, and
other activities to bring land
into crop production, includ-
ing what was Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP)
acreage" said Odom. "This
land needs to be. reviewed
to ensure any work will not


jeopardize your eligibility
for FSA program benefits
now or in the future."
Farmers with HEL deter-
mined soils are reminded to
follow tillage, crop residue,
and rotation requirements
as specified in their conser-
vation systems. Producers
should notify FSA prior to
conducting land clearing or
drainage projects to insure
compliance.
Odom said landowners
and operators can complete
form AD-1026 Highly Erod-,
ible Land Conservation
(HELC) and Wetland Con-
servation (WC) Certification
to determine whether a re-
ferral to Natural Resourc-
es Conservation Service


(NRCS) is necessary.
"Something as simple
as clearing a fence row or
converting a pasture into
cropland could result in los-
ing USDA benefits," added
Odom.
Persons who produce an
agricultural commodity on
a fields) where highly erod-
ible land is predominate, are
ineligible for benefits under
the Highly Erodible Land
Provisions (HELC) unless
'it has been determined by
NRCS that a conservation
system is being actively ap-
plied. This conservation
system must be adequate
for highly erodible land and
will be based on the local
NRCS technical guide.

WCSB meets, Wilkerson announces retirement


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board met in their
regularly scheduled ses-
sion on March 13 at 9 a.m.
School board Chairperson
Dennis Wallace was not in
attendance for the meeting.
Walton County Super-
intendent Carlene Ander-
son thanked the DeFuniak
Springs and Freeport Ki-
wanis Clubs for their dona-
tion of $2,000 to help school
children attend artistic
events.
The board then moved
to approve the agenda and
prior minutes before them
unanimously.
The board then requested
public comments. One par-
ent came forward to request
that her child, currently in
a Department of Juvenile
Justice (DJJ) facility would
be allowed to attend South
Walton High School rather
than Walton Academy, af-
ter completing the DJJ pro-
gram. Anderson explained
to the parent that the board
would have to waive their
policy, which requires stu-
dents to attend a transi-
tion school such as Walton


Academy, before they are
allowed to attend a county
high school. The parent was
urged to meet with Ander-
son and staff, so the request
could be researched and put
on the next agenda to come
before the board for a deci-
sion if needed.
Anderson then requested
the board approve the con-
sent agenda before them.
Among those items were
coaching contracts for
Lloyd Anderson and Char-
lie Simmons, approval of
the monthly financial re-
port, approval of mid-year
progress reports for Walton
County schools, contracts
between the WCSB and
Century Link for fiber wide
area network (WAN) and
contracts between WCSB
and Southern Linc, as well
as transportation requests,
meal price increases and
construction contracts
amendments for Emerald
Coast Middle School.
Board member Sharon
Roberts requested a clari-
fication on the meal price
increase request. Ander-
son told Roberts due to the
fact that the schools receive


funding through the federal
government for the free and
reduced lunch program, the
federal government requires
the schools to gradually in-
crease the price on these
lunches until they reach the
targeted rate of $2.51 per
plate that the federal gov-
ernment sets. Anderson re-
quested that the increase in
rates not start until the next
(2012-2013) school year.
The board moved unani-
mously to approve the
consent agenda items 4-0.
School board Chairperson
Dennis Wallace was not in
attendance for the meeting.
Action agenda items were
next before the board and
the board granted unani-
mous approval to Anderson's
request that they be passed.
Among items were person-
nel recommendations and
travel approval for board
members to Gainsville, Fla.,
for boardsmanship and pol-
icy governance training on
April 10-12 for members,
Faye Leddon and Roberts.
Board member Mark
Davis made a point to the
board that he had noticed
the maximum bid by Elkins


Construction was a million
less then expected. "That's
some good news," he added
Board member and long-
time educator Mildred
Wilkerson announced to the
board that she would not be
seeking re-election to her
post in November. "I appre-
ciate everything everyone
has done, and thank you so
much and I wish you all the
best of everything." Wilker-
son told the board she was
looking forward to the free
time at home and "enjoying
life."
Leddon responded to
Wilkerson's announcement
by saying, "I am really sorry
to hear that and have en-
joyed working with you. She
has been a great mentor to
me, so, I'll miss you. You've
done a great job and I know
the public will be sorry to
hear it too."
Anderson added, "Thank
you for your service and we
will miss you."
Minutes, agendas, and
meetings can be found
at www.walton.kl2.fl.us/
board/. The next board meet-
ing is scheduled for April 10
at 9 a.m.

How


peaceably


can you

assemble?

By BRUCE COLLIER



A regular reader and correspondent to this newspaper
sent me a link referring to a recently enacted piece of fed-
eral legislation called H.R. 347, which I found online and
downloaded. It was only two pages, and amends Section
1752 of Title 18 of the United States Code, which deals with
"Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement
Act of 2011." Incidentally, Section 1751 of the same title
deals with assault, kidnapping and assassination of the
president or presidential staff, so this is stuff the govern-
ment takes very seriously.
The amendment makes it an offense, punishable by fine
or imprisonment of up to one year, to knowingly enter "any
restricted building or grounds" with the intent to "impede
or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or
official functions," and to engage in "disorderly or disrup-
tive conduct" in such places that "in fact, impedes or dis-
rupts the orderly conduct of Government business or offi-
cial functions," or "obstructs or impedes ingress or egress"
from those places. Physical violence is likewise prohibited.
If you use or carry a dangerous weapon or firearm, or sig-
nificantly injure someone when doing this, you can draw up
to 10 years in prison.
What's the problem with this? After all, disorderly con-
duct is generally against the law most times and places -
read this week's (or any week's) arrest reports if you doubt
that. Forbidding unauthorized persons to carry weapons in
restricted buildings (such as courthouses) is likewise noth-
ing new to federal statutes.
The problem is that "disorderly conduct" language, cou-
pled with that part about impeding the orderly conduct or
official functions of the government. Most of us would agree
that a guy staggering around a tavern, hog-drunk, throw-
ing punches and breaking chairs is someone that needs ar-
resting. But what about a band of Tea Partiers, or Occupi-
ers, or Students for Hugo Chavez, banging on homemade
instruments and.brandishing life-sized Obama puppets,
cluttering up the halls of Congress to get their point across
to the legislators-at-work? Do they get arrested, too?
The answer is, maybe yes, maybe no. The First Amend-
ment guarantees citizens' rights "peaceably to assemble,
and to petition the government for a redress of grievanc-
es." Neither the U.S. Constitution, nor H.R. 347, gives us
a clear definition of what's peaceable and what's disorderly
and disruptive. At what point do 4,000 choruses of "All We
Are Saying is Give Peace a Chance" go from being simply
annoying to outright disruptive? And who gets to make the
official call on when it disrupts the conduct of government
business?
There's the rub. Constitutional Law 101 tells us that the
U.S. Constitution rules supreme it's in Article VI, so we
should be able to assemble, petition and get all the redress
we want, right? Unless, of course, we aren't being peaceable
about it. In order to make a conviction stick under this new
law, someone has to make that decision. It generally falls to
some underpaid guard being hollered at by an angry crowd,
followed by nine people in black robes fighting among them-
selves in a galaxy far, far away.
Considering the generally narcissistic, violence-equals-
passon quality of modern political discourse and protest
(Look at me, I'm on YouTube! And, oh yeah, Free Somalia!)
there's going to be a whole lot of arrests coming this year. Is
this just another aspect of the post-9/11 world, or are some
fearful leaders circling the wagons even closer for Novem-
ber? Anybody feel a First Amendment chill?

Editor:
How important is a small town Police Department? In
my book their importance ranks at the top of the list. Aside
from their primary duties of fighting crime and keeping the
peace they provide public services you simply don't receive
in larger cities or from contracted police services. Occasion-
ally we read a note of thanks in this paper by someone that
was helped our Police Department. Now I have one of my
own.


A few days ago I lost my valid debit card near the hous-
ing units on 2nd Street. A good Samaritan found it and
called the good guys. They found me and brought the card
to the house. I didn't even know the card was missing. This
sort of service is common with the DeFuniak Police Depart-
ment and is very much appreciated. My thanks to the of-
ficers who took the time to find me.

Editor:
The Bridge of Greed. Everyone is well aware of the inter-
est being served. Next will come Beautification Grants for
the flowers and yes bike path. After the hurricane, then yes
more millions for beach renovation. Its very clear incorpo-
ration of the entire beach would free up the county to serve
the rest of the people. It's denying. This is not about the
"haves" or "have-nots." This is about the "have it alls." Just
take a ride around DeFuniak and get off the main.streets,
tire stores are loving all this work, from the disgraceful
streets. Take a ride to the Mossy Head supposedly Industri-
al Park. The state and county put in two entrances off U.S.
285 and paved a rode to nowhere. It ends at a dirt pit which


I guess serves a bucket truck bus. Hauling to Duke Field.
Now on Seven Oaks Rd., my residence, we have 19 single
homes that needs pavement bad, but 40 years of waiting on
the list. Then there's the article about the county putting in
a sewer to serve the old truck stop and golf course.
This is exactly the mentality treatment of nickel and
dime projects that will never materialize other than gain.
Political points to appease some reader.
It's like the tax collector told me over the phone these
people have no education. She's right but they do under-
stand one thing "Greed for the self-serving."

I LETTER TO3THE EDITOR I


To: Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff -- '

From: An Old Broke but Wiser Soldier
The Bible in Proverbs 6-12 says, "... Thou art snared by
the words of thy mouths." I had hope to begin this letter
with words like, "With all due respect Sir,...," the disap-
pointing fact is that I have none left for you as a brother in
arms after your disgraceful apology to world for the actions
of America's soldiers. A USMC general is a greater disgrace
for being too weak to defend his Marines. fear-filled words
from America's generals, admirals. and politicians have de-
feated our warriors before they even arrive on the far-flung
battle fields you are sending them today. This is not about
individual valor.
My daddy (USMA 1938) a cavalry officer who served un-
der General Patton, is lying in his grave at Arlington Ceme-
tery with a disgust greater than mine over your disgraceful
apologies.
My four grandsons: Houston (11), Caden (8), Tristan (7),


and Silas Jones (3) have known nothing but America at war
since they were born. They are loyal patriots. Will they be
expected by self-serving generals to follow orders in feck-
less wars in places such as Afghanistan whose tribes have
whipped some of the mightiest armies every fielded from
the back of a Moped? By the time they reach draft age, I
hope all 500 flag officers and thousands of consultants in
the Pentagon have become clever enough to not have to put
boots on the ground in he first place. My view of ya'll's per-
formance changed dramatically when I saw my grandsons
through a Taliban AK-47 gunsight in a winless war. Thank
God it was only a dream! Quit blaming the troops.
Who will make the excuses for ya'll next week as you,
"..stay the course."

LETE O HEEITOR


Editor:
Subj: Use God's gift on compromise
1. The American people must now move forward in faith as
David did when facing the giants Goliath. We each know
how God, has prepared us for battle. This day and time we
have to stand before God without excuse. The day of hid-
ing and shrinking back from confronting sin, ignorance or
blindness to the full and real truth is over.


2. Light and darkness will not mixture. Let's pray God with
give us the courage to do without delay that which is Godly
and right. None of us need to fear intimidation from any
ungodly or lying source.

Sincerely
William B. Webster
New Harmony Community


LETE OSHEEITOR


Editor:
I want to thank the city of DeFuniak Spgs. police officers
Waidene Bayne and officer Russell McNeal and Walton
County Animal Contol Robert Carr for the fine and out-
standing job they did for me.
On Wed. 10 a.m. 3-14-12, I was walking on Walton Road
N. side, Heading east about 10 a.m. just about 50 ft. past
Shoemaker Drive, when I heard a dog barking, I looked to
see a big black dog (he was big enough to put a saddle on and
ride.) He was on the south side of Walton Road. He looked
like three different times he was gonna cross over to my
side, but didn't, but was barking like mad. He terrified me.
I had my cell phone (thank goodness for cell phones.) and
called 911 and gave the lady the information she needed, I
was told to hang on and not hang up. The two police officers
and animal control officer came and I showed them which


direction the dog went. Officer Bayne asked me if I needed
a ride home, and I told her I wanted to finish my walk.
I saw all three riding and looking for the dog. They said
they know where the dog lives, about 11:20 a.m. the two
police officers and Animal Control stopped at my house and
said they picked the dog up. She said the dog was mean. I
wanted to thank the two officers and Animal Control officer
for what they did for me.
Robert Carr, animal control officer, stopped by my house
at 2:30 p.m. to let me know they had picked the dog. He said
he had to go on another call and said I wouldn't be bothered
by that dog again. I thanked him very much for what they
did for me.
Again thank you
Mrs. Mary D. Tucker
DeFuniak Springs Fl.

Editor:
I imagine that most people would like to live their retired
lives in paradise. A friend of mine and his wife decided to do
that (I will call them Stan and Linda). They chose the coun-
try of Panama in Central America after much research. For
approximately three years, it appeared they had accom-
plished their mission. ft was truly a tropical paradise and
beautiful beyond words. They lived a few miles from a small
town where they shopped for groceries and most of what
they needed.
They met several nice couples in the area that were also
living the dream of a lifetime. Their social life was pleasant
with their new friends. It was a perfect life for about three
years. Then a middle aged man and his girl friend arrived
on the scene. They purchased a small home from a lady
living nearby. They bought other properties and rented
them to visitors from the U.S. The man was a pushy, load-
mouthed type of person. Stan and Linda did not care for
his company. The man started showing up at their place
uninvited and making a nuisance of himself. He wore out
his welcome. Stan told him to leave and not to return.


In the mean time, the family of the lady that first sold her
house kept badgering the local police. They had not heard
from her for months. They kept telling the police that some-
thing must be wrong. After many calls, the police obtained
a warrant and reluctantly went to investigate. Apparently,
property is not controlled as it is here in the States. The
man told the police that he had bought her property and
she left the area. He had no knowledge of her whereabouts.
The man had kept the lady's dog. When the police went to
the back yard, the dog ran to a spot and laid down. They
dug up the spot and found the lady's body. They kept dig-
ging and found several more bodies. They were the people
that he had claimed had sold their properties to him. Stan
and Linda feel that they would have been in the line of bod-
ies if Stan had not ordered the man away.
This is a true story. The serial killer's name is William
Dathan Holbert. Google his name and you will find pages
about him.

Water district's online


well permitting a success


Electronic permitting of
water wells was an immedi-
ate success when the system
went live on Jan. 4, 2012.
That month, the Northwest
Florida Water Management
District recieved nearly half
its applications and a quar-
ter of its completion reports
onlione.
"The district has passed
along direct savings of time
and money through e-per-
mitting," said District Ex-
ecutive Director Doug Barr.


BULLY FOR THE DEFUNIAK HERALD AND THE BEACH BREEZE, for like Theo-
dore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders they reached the top of San Juan Hill, Cuba. Wal-
ton County's own David Bludworth and wife Judi were privileged to join Tweed Roosevelt
(President Theodore Roosevelt's great-grandson) and the Theodore Roosevelt Association
on a week long trek around Cuba. In 1898 the U.S. joined the Cuban forces to end the war
against Spain. On July 1 Col. Theodore Roosevelt led a group of volunteers against forces
on Kettle Hill and then San Juan Hill near Santiago de Cuba. The conflict referred to as the
"splendid little war" by many newspapers who covered first hand the U.S. activities. Most
think of the slogan "Remember the Maine" as it relates to this war. The Maine, an American
battleship, had been in the Havana harbor for several months when it exploded and sank.
Many sailors lost their lives and it triggered a deluge of calls for action against those re-
sponsible. As of today it is unsure how the Maine was sunk but it appears to have been from
an internal ship explosion rather than from outside force. In any event the splendid little
war got going in earnest The war ended soon thereafter and Roosevelt returned to New York
and was elected governor as an American hero.

CNN hero visits DFS Rotary Club


Story and photos by
JEFFREY POWELL
The CNN heroes pro-
gram consists of people from


around the world and from
very different walks of life.
In 2007 one of these diverse
individuals hailed from


* Routine Obstetrics
* High Risk Obstetrics
* 3D/4D Ultrasound
in Office


Destin. His name is Aaron
Jackson and he visited the
DeFuniak Springs Rotary
Club on March 14, to speak
about his ever growing hu-
manitarian efforts.
Jackson is a member of
Planting Peace, a group that
has a wide range of charita-
ble and humanitarian goals,
the first of which is ridding
children of intestinal worms.
As of today they have treat-
ed more than three million
children and hope to treat
many more.
"About 7 or 8 years ago I
made my first trip to Haiti
and wondered why so many
of the children had distend-
ed bellies and were just ly-
ing around," Jackson told
the gathering. "The answer
was their stomachs were full
of nutrient-robbing, worms.
That grossed me out, I had
never seen that."
After using his own mon-
ey to treat one of those chil-
dren the child's mother came
to thank him and said the
child would have died with-

out help. From that point on
Jackson was on a mission
to treat children with intes-
tinal worms. In fact the ex-
perience led him to co-found
Planting Peace in 2004.
"The world-wide commu-
nity sees that we are one of
the only organizations do-
ing this and they are sup-
porting us," Jackson said.
"This' work is a blessing, if
you give to the world other
things come back to you. I
have met all kinds of people
from all kinds of places. I
would not trade what I am
doing for anything else."
Currently the pills used
to treat children can be pur-
chased for less than 2 cents
per patient. The goal of
Planting Peace is to treat as
many children as possible in
Haiti and beyond.
"Our organizations are
similar in that they both
focus on humanitarian ef-
forts around the world,"
said Rotary Club Program
Director Voncille McLeod.
"Having someone that has
worked like Aaron has can
only strengthen our resolve
to help the people here at
home and abroad."

periences in Haiti. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)

vehicle crash on U.S. 331


On March 13, DeFuniak
Springs Police responded
to the area of 570 U.S. 331
North to a crash involving
three vehicles with reported
injuries.
Officers arrived on scene
to find that a 2006 Chevro-

south on U.S. 331 when she
veered into the northbound


lane colliding into a 2003
Subaru car driven by Rich-
ard D. Howell. The collision
caused the Subaru to over-
turn.
The Chevrolet truck con-
tinued its travel striking
another vehicle that was
parked at the residence of

McHenry was transport-
ed via helicopter to Sacred

was treated and later re-
leased. A passenger in the

TOLL Co

citizens, was by all accounts
very productive. It resulted
in assurances' by DOT re-
garding not only the four-
laning of the'bay bridge but
the widening of the remain-
der of the state highway as
far north as I-10---on the
condition of the county's fi-
nancial participation with
the bridge expansion proj-
ect. For the first time, DOT
also expressed willingness
to look at a reduced rate
for residents if a toll were
imposed on the new bridge
span that is proposed.
Additional time was also
agreed to in which the coun-
ty could consider whether
to enter into a partnership
on the bridge project. The
deadline for a decision had
previously been June 1. It
was extended to July 1.
As a follow-up to the Feb.,
28 meeting, DOT'had prom-
ised a letter setting out in
writing items agreed to at
the meeting. The letter was
provided on March 13. It was
made available to members
of the Walton County Board
of County Commissioners
(BCC) at their regular meet-
ing that afternoon and to
citizens attending the meet-
ing. The meeting took place
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex.
Signed by DOT District
Three Secretary Tommy
Barfield, the letter indicated
that, if a $2 toll were imple-
mented to provide Wal-
ton County's required $75
million local match on the
$177-million project, that
the toll would not be perma-
nent. DOT pledged that the
toll would stay in place only
until the $75 million debt
was retired, for a 30-year
period.
Barfield's letter also an-
nounced that DOT had re-
cently initiated "a more
detailed Toll and Revenue
study...to evaluate traffic
composition and develop toll
options."
"Elements of the study
will including tolling in one
direction, and toll rate sce-.
narios that could provide
potential discounts for local
residents," the letter contin-
ued. DOT anticipated hav-
ing preliminary results fiom
the study by July. .
The letter indicated that,
if imposed, tolls would be
collected not by means of
toll booths .but "electoni-
cally by overhead gantry
systems at the approaches
to the bridge" for vehicles
with transponders. License
plates of vehicles without
transponders would be pho-
tographed and processed
electronically, with "periodic
,statements" mailed to driv-
ers of those vehicles for pay-
ment, the letter detailed.
The letter concluded with
the statement that DOT "is
willing to commit additional
finding to widen the corri-
dor north of the bridge and
complete construction by
2017."
At the March 13 BCC
meeting, Walton County
Administrator Greg Kisela
reminded the commission-
ers that DOT had, prior to


NTINUED FROM PAGE 1-A


the bridge proposal, already.
programmed the funding
necessary to complete the
four-laning of U.S. 331 all
the way north to 1-10, with
the exception of between
$78 and $80 million.
In December, the agency
had pledged $102 million to
widen the bay bridge on the
condition of Walton County
providing $75 million in lo-
cal matching funds through
a toll or by other means.
"The devil is -in the de-
tails," Kisela told the com-
missioners.
On Feb. 14, the BCC had'
voted not to ask the state to
impose a toll as the source
for the $75 million matching
funds for the bridge project.
On that date, the commis-
sioners had also voted to set
an April 24 referendum at
which voters would decide
whether to. raise the sales
tax by one-half cent on the
dollar for taxable items in
other to fund the $75 mil-
lion match.
Kisela asked the commis-
sioners if it was their desire
to do anything differently
as a result of the letter from
DOT.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander suggested
that "in light of' the letter,
consideration of the toll be
put back "on the table" and
two public hearings, one in
the north end and one in the
south end, be scheduled to
update the public with new
information on the toll op-
tion.
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen expressed
appreciation to the WCTA
for its participation with the
meeting with DOT in Tal-
lahassee. He found it to be
very helpful.
Pridgen commented that
the county could not afford
to let this opportunity pass.
"The job creation here is go-
ing to be tremendous," he
stated.
Pridgen added that, con-
sidering how long as the
- county has been trying to get
U.S. 331 widened, "we can't
just throw up our hands"
and give up.
"It just doesn't get better
than the package we walked
away with," Bonnie McQuis-
ton of the WCTA said of the
Feb. 28 meeting in Talla-
hassee. She thanked the
commissioners for support-
ing the WCTA members in
making their case to DOT.
McQuistontooktheoppor-
tunity to publicly apologize
to Dawn Moliterno, Walton
County's point person for
the U.S. 331 widening ef-
fort. McQuiston said she
had found that statements
that she had made accus-
ing Moliterno of brokering a'
deal for the bridge proposal
had been incorrect. McQuis-
ton explained that she had
learned from DOT Secretary
Ananth Prasad that the of-
fer to Walton County for the
$102 million funding for the
bridge had come because
the funds had come avail-
able and DOT had wanted
them to go to a large bridge
project.
Commander recalled that


the DOT secretary had stat-
ed that "that money was for
a bridge."
"He made it clear that if
we turned it down, it would
go somewhere else," Co-
mander recalled.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones commented
that he had appreciated
the BCC previously acting
on his suggestion to take
the toll off the table---but!
that he had no problem ask-
ing for the toll option to be
considered again under the
new circumstances that had
arisen. He made a motion to
do so, which, was seconded
by Pridgen.
The motion was approved
unanimously.
Don Riley of the Walton
County Taxpayers Associa-
tion recommended that the
commissioners put off the
scheduled referendum on
the sales tax increase. He
said polls had indicated that
the referendum would fail.
Looking forward, Larry
Jones suggested that the
commissioners consider
plans to make U.S. 331 "look
special" once the highway is
expanded. He also -brought
up the idea of using addi-
tional property taxes gener-
ated from increased proper-
ty values resulting from the
four-laning to help "pay the
debt down" from the match-
ing funds.
Rosemary Beach Town
Manager Jim Bagby urged
the commissioners to seek
revisions to the letter from
DOT setting forth more spe-
cific language with regard
to DOT's commitment to
widening the U:S. 331 cor-
ridor and with regard to the
amount of funding pledged.
Bagby also suggested that
a signature from Prasad be
obtained on the proposal,
since he is the official who is
able to commit to the fund-
ing.
Approved by unanimous
vote at the March 13 meet-
ing were two additional mo-
tions in connection with the
bay bridge. The first was
to rescind the April 24 ref-
erendum on the proposed
sales tax increase and to
set a March 27 public hear-
ing to consider rescheduling
that election for May 8. The
March 27 public hearing will
be in conjunction with the 9
a.m. BCC meeting on that
date at the Walton County
Courthouse in DeFuniak
Springs.
The other motion was to
hold two public hearings
prior to the May 8 referen-
dum. At those meetings,
new information is to be
provided on the bridge toll
option. The first of those
special meetings is sched-
uled for 5 p.m. on April 3 at
the county courthouse in De-
Funiak Springs. The second
is to take place at 5 p.m. on
April 17 at the South Wal-
ton Courthouse Annex.

Kisela pledged to press
DOT for information from
the toll study in advance of
the public hearings so that
the information could be
presented at the hearings.

Children's Volunteer


Health Network


expands dental services


for uninsured children


Children's Volunteer
Health Network (CVHN),
serving uninsured children
in Walton and Okaloosa
counties, was awarded a
$100,000 grant from the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
of Florida (BCBSF) Founda-
tion, enabling the nonprofit
to expand its dental care
services.
CVHN will hire a full-
time' dentist for. its new
dental clinic. The clinic will
treat children with restor-
ative dental care like fillings
and root canals. The organi-
zation's mobile dental unit
will still operate and treat
children with preventative
dental care like cleaning.
More than 65 percent of chil-
dren examined on the mo-
bile unit last year required
further restorative care.
The resources for restor-
ative dental care in.the com-
munity are limited or un-
available because of the cost
of such treatments. More
than 60 percent of Walton
County families have no
dental insurance and only
15 dentists in Walton Coun-
ty serve a population of over
50,000 people.Only one pri-
vate practice dentist in Wal-
ton and Okaloosa County
accepts Medicaid clients
(other than the health de-
partments).
"The IMPACT grant will
help Children's Volunteer
Health Network provide


quality restorative dental
services to hundreds of un-
insured and underinsured
children in Walton and Oka-
loosa counties," said Zach
Billingsley, executive direc-
tor, Children's Volunteer
Health Network.
The new dental clinic will
hold a grand opening cel-
ebration in April 2012. The
goal is to treat 1,000 chil-
dren over the course of the
year.
CVHN received the grant
through the BCBSF Foun-
dation's Improving Access
to Health Care .(IMPACT)
grant program, which is
aimed at improving health
care access for uninsured
and underserved Floridians.
The BCBSF Foundation
awarded $1,124,000 in new
grants to 13 Florida health
nonprofits in January.
This is the fourth grant
CVHN has been 'awarded
by the BCBSF Foundation.
In 2009, the nonprofit was
recognized at the annual
Sapphire Award presenta-
tion and bestowed a $25,000
grant, as well as received an
IMPACT grant of $99,360
for the "Just for Grins" mo-
bile health unit. In 2008, the
foundation awarded CVHN
$95,651 to create the mobile
health clinic.
"The BCBSF Foundation
is committed to impacting
the health and well-being
of Floridians," said Susan


Towler, vice president of the
BCBSF Foundation. "Chil-
dren's Volunteer Health
Network serves a vital role
in the community and we
are honored to help the or-
ganization fulfill its mis-
sion."

Beekeeper shares his craft at Biophilia Center


By DOTTY NIST
"There's never been more
interest in bees," Gordon
Clauss told a group of adults
and children at the E.O.
Wilson Biophilia Center on
March 10.
The Youngstown "bee
farmer" has 250 hives that
he will soon be splitting up
to make 500 hives. "It's a
lot of fun," he said. Clauss
had brought along samples
of the honey he produces,
and a number of varieties
were available for sale. His
business is known as Camp
Flower Honey.
Clauss commented on
how the technology of bee-
keeping has advanced over
the years. "It's not your


grandfather's beekeeping
any more," he said, adding
that considerable research
on bees is ongoing. He rec-
ommended that people
interested in getting into
beekeeping start by appren-
ticing with a professional.
Every beekeeper must
now be registered with the
state, Clauss explained.
Florida has a very good
program to help beekeep-
ers solve any problems
that they may encounter,
he said. Those problems
can range from bears rob-
bing the hives to beetles or
varroa mites attacking the
bees. Clauss told the group
that he had invented a de-
vice to combat hive beetles


that is used worldwide.
Honey bees are not native
but were first brought to
North America by European
settlers. Asked about non-
native bees' impact on na-
tive bees, Claus responded,
"They replenish them." He
noted that native bees are
declining in number.
There has also been a de-
cline in the European bee
populations worldwide over
the past five years due to
the dramatic rise of a phe-
nomenon called colony col-
lapse disorder (CCD), in
which worker bees suddenly


abandon their hive.
Clauss said the cause of
CCD is still unknown, but
that pesticide use is the sus-
pected culprit.
Aside from producing
honey, why are bees impor-
tant to us? A major reason
is that they pollinate food
crops. Clauss estimated
that 40 percent of the foods
in our diet would "go away"
without bees performing
this service.
Only female bees have
stingers, and the female
bees do all the work in the
hive, Clauss revealed. The


queen bee is the only fer-
tile bee in the hive, laying
all the eggs, he said. If the
queen bee is injured, this
represents a "catastrophe"
for the hive, he explained.
When this happens, if there
is a viable egg in the hive,
the worker bees will provide
the special nourishment
necessary to turn it into a
new queen bee, he said.
"It's a miraculous pas-
time;" Clauss said of his
craft, "I'm amazed all the
time."
He encourage everyone
to get involved with bee-


keeping. "There is a bee club
in almost every county," he
said.
He invited attendees to
come to Camp Flower Hon-
ey's table at the Seaside
Farmer's Market on week-
ends.
Located near Freeport,
the E.O. Wilson Biophilia
Center is open to the public
on Saturday from Sept. 1
through May 31, and a va-
riety of programs are pre-
sented. Information is avail-
able by calling the center at
(850) 835-1824 or by visiting
www.eowilsoncenter.org.

cleared
out,
shoppers
were able
to pick
through
the thou-

at their
leisure.


this past Saturday morn-
ing. The crowd was so large
when the doors were opened
at 8:30 a.m., that many had
to either wait or return later
just to get in.
With the great deals on
reading materials at $2 a
plastic bag, which the DFS
Friends of the Library sup-
plies, shoppers took full ad-


vantage of the sale.
The next sale sponsored

who would like to donate to

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,

We always hear about
men buying a little red
sports car or taking up with
a woman half their age when
they are having a mid-life
crisis. I am wondering if you
think women have these as
well?
Around the age of 40, I
started to become very dis-
interested in the life plan
I had laid out for myself. I
lost my urge to be a part of
certain social groups as well
keep up with the same life-
style that others may covet.
I have never traveled
much, but for the last two
years, I keep thinking of up-
rooting myself from my home
town and making a fresh
start. My friends tell me I'm
hax4ng a mid-life crisis, and
maybe I am, but I don't want
to regain my youth as much
as I feel like something is
pulling me somewhere else.
I'm not married and have no
children, although I do. have
family in the area.
I guess I scared a little as
well. I'm not independently
wealthy, but I have always
been able to find a job and
am planning on using some
of my savings to get settled.
My friends think I'm crazy
and have been discouraging
me from "leaving home" as
they call it. I wanted an out-
side opinion, so I wrote to
you. What do you think?

Freebird in Freeport

Dear Freebird,

I don't think a change of
scenery in life is a bad thing.
Instead of a mid-life crisis,
I think you want a second
act in the story of your life.
Down the road, you might
even want a third act, but
we'll cross that bridge if we

get to it. You're not looking
to regain your youth, you
just want a different experi-
ence out of life according to
what I get from your email.
And, that's not a bad thing.
A quote I often hear is,
"You'll never regret what
you did in life as much as
you'll regret the chances you
didn't take." I think that
could apply to you. Your
friends may be discourag-
ing you, because they don't
want to lose you. But, when
we really love someone, we
want them to be happy, no
matter our needs. So, be
your own best friend and do
what makes you happy.
You can stay where you
are the rest of your life and
wonder what life could have
held for you, or you can
spread your wings and .fly.
It's up to you to determine
how free a bird you really
want to be. Follow your in-
tuition and the pull you feel,
it won't steer you wrong.
Good luck and God bless.

St. Margaret Church hosting

fish fry every Friday during

Lent through March 30


Late last year I returned
to speak at the church that
was my first pastorate. The
church was celebrating its
25th anniversary, and it had
been more than a decade
since I had stood in their
pulpit. They welcomed me
back with incredible grace
and affection, and I was tru-
ly glad for the reunioia.
When I first went there
as pastor, I was a green,
naive, ignorant child, still
in my early twenties, full of
pep and vinegar, ready to
extinguish hell with a water
gun. Equipped with a fresh
diploma, a certificate of or-
dination with the ink still
wet, and a new red Bible, I
worked hard to justify my
position and demonstrate to
all that I knew everything
there was to know about
leading a congregation.
Heck, I wanted people to
see that I knew everything
about everything.
When it was whispered
in the gossip parlors' of the
church Sunday school rooms
and in the beauty salons of
the greater community that
in fact I did not know ev-
erything about everything,
and that I was far too young


for the responsibility now
thrust upon me, I worked all
the harder to prove my crit-
ics wrong and my youthful
abilities underestimated.
This hard work paid off,
because in the process of
proving myself, the mem-
bership rolls did indeed
grow. The coffers of the
church swelled like never
before, acres of land were
purchased, buildings were
built, mission trips were
taken, baptisteries were
filled, other congregations
were planted, the church
became a rising sensation,
and the critics quieted their
murmuring assaults.
Yes, by the end of my ten-
ure there, I had gained a
great deal of success. But I
also lost a few things along'
the way. I lost my youthful
idealism; my religion; my
marriage; my way, and al-
most my mind. Most of all,
I lost touch with the very
reason I had entered the vo-
cation in the first place: The
love of Christ.
See, I became more con-
cerned with growing a big-
ger church than with the
well-being of individual
people who needed to know


lt,


Mark 11:23 "For assuredly, I say to you, who-
ever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and
be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in
his heart, but believes that those things he
says will come to pass, he will have whatever
he says."


grace. I worked tirelessly
to keep the "right" people
happy and tithing, and ne-
glected those on the "wrong"
side of the tracks, those that
Christ sought more than
any other.
I wanted a prosperous
religious career by building
the next religious edifice, by
impressing the suits at the
denomination's headquar-
ters, and by meticulously
managing my public image.
Only years later did I real-
ize that Jesus was not very
much involved in any of
this.
It was a hard lesson to
learn, but I take some com-
fort in the fact that I am
not alone in learning it. An-
other hard-striving, pomp-
ous, know-it-all once wrote,
"Christ has shown me that
what I thought I knew is
worthless... Nothing else
matters but this: To know
Christ and to know that I
belong to him" (Philippians
3).
So that's what I told my
first congregation when they
invited me back to speak. I
told them that I had indeed
been too young to be a pas-
tor, that I had done them a

disservice by spending too
much energy on the trivial
and on my own attempted
accomplishments, and not
enough energy pointing
them to the grace and love
found in Christ. And I told
them that I now know a
whole lot less than I once
thought I did; I'm even more
ignorant than I once was.
Not all of my old friends
like this admission. They
think I've lost my "fire," or
that I've gone "theologically
soft." Some think I've fallen
completely away. This sin-
gular emphasis upon Christ
and his grace, ironically,
makes some Christians
uncomfortable. They want
"more." But there is no more
if our first and consuming
passion is not to reflect the
grace and love of Christ.
After all, "if I speak with
the tongues of men and of
angels, and if I have all faith
so as to remove mountains,
but I do not have love, it
profits me nothing." I don't
know much, but that much I
know. "


St. Margaret Church on
U.S. 331 North will have a
fish fry every Friday during
Lent from 4 7 p.m. begin-
ning on Feb. 24 March 30.

Walton's Leach strikes out 18 South



Walton batters as Braves win 3-0


By REID TUCKER
Brendan Leach turned in
what must be one of the all-
time great performances by
a Walton pitcher when he
struck out 18 South Walton
batters, paving the way for
a 3-0 win for the Braves.
Leach more than earned
the non-conference win on
Thursday, March 15, by
walking just four batters
and giving up a sole hit, a
double in the top of the sixth
inning. Aside from that one
instance, Leach was all but
unstoppable on the mound,
never seeming to tire as he
threw pitch after pitch for
a total of 112 on the night.
Even as the game wore on,
with closer Angus Anderson
fully warmed up and ready
to go, Leach said he was de-
termined to finish the game
and told coach Rick Dixon
as much.
"I was feeling great the
whole day," Leach said. "My
arm felt alive. I got better
as the game went on. Coach
was iffy about it but I told
him, 'Let me have it.' He
told me it was all mine."
The game was, indeed, al-
most entirely about Leach's
pitching, as his performance
dominated the action and
dictated the course of the
.contest from the outset. Dix-
on was ready to pull Leach
after the middle innings,
but he was glad he left the
senior pitcher in to get a
complete game. However,


as good as Leach's throwing
was, Dixon said neither the
fans nor the Brave's oppo-
nents have seen the best he
has to offer on the mound.
"He had a great game to-
. night but I've seen him even
sharper," Dixon said. "What
he has is a great, arm. He
throws so hard that even
when he's not at his best
he's still capable of over-
whelming opposing batters.
When you have a kid like
that, who wants to throw,
you have to let him so long
as he stays consistent, and
that's just what Brendan
does."
Though Leach gave Wal-
ton control on the defensive
front, the Braves' batters
had a little trouble getting
on-base, such was the de-
termination of South Wal-
ton's fielders and pitcher,
Alex Astin, who amassed
eight Ks and gave up only
four hits while walking just
two batters. Neither team
had scored through two-
and-a-half innings, but with
Leach gunning down the
Seahawks' would-be hitters
it was only a matter of time
before some base runners
made it home.
That moment came in
the bottom of the third
when Astin tried to sneak
a fastball by Nathan Cobb
for strike two, but the Wal-
ton first baseman instead
gapped the ball into shallow
right center for a single. As-

5 Sports Facts

1. The Kentucky baseball team won their school-record
21st consecutive game on Sunday to open the season, eclips-
ing the previous record for the longest winning streak and
the best start to a season. In 2007 and 2008, UK opened
with a 19-0 record. UK is the only unbeaten team remain-
ing in college baseball, leading the NCAA with the longest
winning streak and the most total wins.

2. The 2007 New England Patriots scored the most points
in a season in the history of the NFL with 589 total points
scored during an 18-1 record that ended with a loss to the
New York Giants in the Super Bowl.

3. NFL teams in 2011 combined to score a league-record
11,356 points (44.36 points per game), breaking the mark
of 11,283 set in 2010. The 44.36 points per game this year
is the highest such average in 46 seasons.

4. University of Kentucky head men's .basketball coach
John Calipari has been named one of four finalists for the
Naismith College Coach of the Year the Atlanta Tipoff Club
announced on Thursday. A two-time winner of the award in
2008 and 1996, Calipari is looking to become only the sec-
ond coach to earn the honor three times. Voted this year's
Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year by league
coaches and the Associated Press, Calipari led the Wildcats
to a 16-0 mark in the SEC this year as well as the No. 1
ranking (AP) for eight-straight weeks. Calipari also broke
the UK record for consecutive home wins in Rupp Arena
this year, extending his streak to 51-straight games.

5. Larry Blakeney has led Troy University's football team
to eight conference championships, including five straight
Sun Belt titles (2006-10) and has coached 61 players that
have gone on to play professional football. Blakeney has
guided the Trojans to 15 winning seasons, including six
seasons of 10 wins or more, and he currently stands fourth
among all college coaches to have manned a sideline in the
state of Alabama with 164 victories.


ning when a Woodard single
turned into an easy score
thanks to a RBI to deep
right field from Brandon
Head, who slugged the ball
over the outstretched hand
of Baker's first baseman.
The Bulldogs' surge contin-
ued into the fourth inning,
which proved to be the most
costly yet for the Gators.
Baker pitcher Brian Benoit
walked two batters and gave
up three hits, two of which
were a RBI single from Nick
Russell, which scored Cas-
well, and a two-run RBI
single from Adam Reddick,
which brought Russell and
Joe Petrone around the bags
for a 3-0 lead.
More damage remained to
be done, however, and Free-
port continued to deny Bak-
er's batters the opportuni-
ties of earlier innings when
they came up to the plate.
Freeport loaded the bases in
the fifth when Caswell and
Petrone singled and Caleb
McCormick walked on, but
none of them scored as Bak-
er switched in new pitcher
Kyle Davis, who struck out
two- of the next three bat-
ters. However, the bottom
of the sixth inning, rife with
errors on the Gators, proved
to be the visiting teamn's un-


doing, as it allowed Head to
steal home and an RBI from
Petrone scored alternate
Ryder Newman.
Freeport carried its
7-0 lead all the way to the
game's conclusion, as, out-
side of a single from Baker's
Cameron Freeman, the re-
maining batters' pop-ups
were easy picking for Free-
port's outfielders.
The Bulldogs' top hitters
on the evening were Cas-
well, who went 2-for-3 with
a RBI, McCormick, who was
also 2-for-3, and Petrone,
who RBI'd and went 2-for-4.
Woodard, Russell and Red-
dick all had singles. Five
different Baker hitters -
Benoit, Freeman, Josh Law-
son, Adam Crowson and
Zac Switzer all singled as
well.

In pitching, Freeport's

On This Date in Local

Sports.....March 22, 2001

By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs and Paxton Bobcats have played
several high scoring softball games in the series history and
the contest on this day in Freeport was no exception.
Paxton held an 8-2 lead heading into the bottom of the
fourth inning only to see the Bulldogs explode for seven
runs to take a 9-8 advantage. Paxton scratched back to take
an 11-10 lead into the top of the seventh and exploded for
one of their highest scoring innings of the season as they
scored 12 runs to knock off Freeport 23-10.
Paxton's Kayla Jordan got the win on the mound and
had a pair of hits while driving in two runners. Jenny Hogg
led the Bobcats at the plate with four hits and three RBIs
as the Bobcats grabbed a victory in the rivalry.

A Sporting Community


1-






. ,


March 13 was a particularly busy Tuesday in local ath-
letics as tennis, track, baseball, softball and Dixie Youth
play all took place over the span of four hours within a 35-
mile radius of the DeFuniak Herald/Beach Breeze's office in
DeFuniak Springs.
Patrick Casey and Reid Tucker made an effort to get a
photograph of each of the dozen events that graced the af-
ternoon.
On any given day in the spring, a game is afoot some-
where. In fact, many games, sports and hobbies seem to
have bloomed a little early with the warm March weather
that is upon us.

GLES against West Florida's Margaret McCaskill. The only

Tuesday, March 13, at 3 p.m., starting off an afternoon of
local sporting events. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

Sports News and Notes:


Brack Signs with F.I.T.


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton senior Alex Brack
signed a scholarship deal
with Florida Institute of
Technology, which is located
in Melbourne, on March 14
in the Media Center of the
school. Brack, who connect-
ed on 83-of-102 extra points
in his career and 8-of-ll
field goals, totaled 107 kick-
ing points for the Braves
and likely attempted the
longest field goal in school
history in the team's finale
against East Gadsden when
he just missed on a 51-yard
try. Brack is believed to hold
the record for most points by
a kicker over a career at the
school. Alex also punted for
the Braves the past two sea-
sons and had two onside kick
recoveries during his career.
Brack will join the Panthers
this fall and have to wait
until 2013 when the team
hits the field for their inau-
gural season. The Panthers
will be the only Division II
school that will play football
in the state of Florida and
have an enrollment of 1,700
undergraduate students. "
Will Scott of Peru State
was selected the Heart of
America Athletic Conferefice
(HAAC) Baseball Pitcher
of the Week on March 12.
Scott was overpowering for
the Bobcats in his only start
of the week, an 11-0 triumph
over Mayville State (N.D.) to
help Peru State improve to
12-4. Scott, a senior who at-
tended Ponce de Leon High
School, tossed seven score-
less innings, allowing just
one hit and one walk while
tallying a career-high 11
strikeouts. He improved his
record to 3-1 on the season
with a 2.52 ERA and has a
team-leading 27 strikeouts
in 25 innings. Scott's 27 K's
in 25 innings pitched places
him fifth among the HAAC
pitchers. In addition, Scott
is sixth among the HAAC
pitchers in batters struck
out per game averaging 9.72


for a nine-inning game; his
2.52 ERA is presently sev-
enth best; and Scott is hold-
ing his opponents to a 0.216
batting average, good for
eighth in the conference.
Walton hosted the Mem-
phis University High Owls
on Tuesday, March 13, pick-
ing up a 2-1 win against the
Spring Break-bound Ten-
nessee team. A Memphis
Uni batter got a home run
off starting Braves pitcher
Brennan Orcutt to make it
1-0 Owls until Chris Kelly
scored a run for Walton (3-3
after the win) in the bottom
of the third inning. The score
remained tied 1-all through
the fifth, when Zach Carter
rocked one to deep center
for the go-ahead run. The
Braves took the one-run vic-
tory two innings later, with
closer Angus Anderson and
the Walton fielders retir-
ing the Memphis batters in
order. Walton used three
pitchers in the game, start-
ing with Orcutt, who struck
out two and gave up just the
one run. After Orcutt was
Kelly, who pitched from the
third through the sixth in-
ning, getting seven Ks while
walking one batter and giv-
ing up a solitary hit. Ander-
son finished off the Owls
with one strikeout to get the
save on the mound. Kelly
led the Braves in hitting as
well, with four doubles in as
many appearances at the
plate. Chris Murphy had a
double, while Orcutt, Zach
Carter and Zach Burgess all
had singles.
Walton Middle School de-
feated visiting Freeport 4-3
in extra innings after fall-
ing behind 3-0 to the Bull-
dogs on Tuesday, March 13.
Freeport's Joseph Sanders,
Hagan Brown and Chase
Delaney all scored early in
the game, giving the Bull-
dogs a solid lead through the
first half of the seven-inning
game. Koleman Truett start-
ed the Warriors' comeback


with a ground-rule double in
the fifth inning, scoring Tru-
man Morrison. Truett was
then driven in by an RBI
single from Adam Hydle.
Walton tied the game 3-all in
the bottom of the sixth after
Thomas Brack singled then
stole second and third base
before scoring on a squeeze
Bunt from Levi Sasser. It
was Sasser who set in mo-
tion the Warriors' eighth-in-
ning win after he reached on
a single. Pinch runner Cole
Benkston stole second base
and scored after team mate
Jace Fielder hit a walk-off
single to center field. Wal-
ton's top hitters were Field-
er, who went 3-for-5 with a
double, and Truett, who was
2-for-4 with two doubles to
his credit. Freeport's Sand-
ers was 1-for-4 at the plate,
with three walks, a run and
two RBIs. Brown and Dela-
ney both went 1-for-2 with
a run each, and Max Dyell
was 1-for-2. Truett also did
starting pitcher's duties
for the Warriors. He gave
up three runs (two earned)
while striking out nine bat-
ters in five innings of work.
Morrison picked up where
Truett left off, retiring nine
of the 10 batters he faced.
He allowed one hit and had
one strikeout to pick up the
win. Freeport used four
different pitchers. Bailey
Miller pitched two innings
and had four Ks, while Dil-
lon Bates threw for three,
allowing four hits and two
runs, but he struck out two
batters. Brown also pitched
for two innings, striking out
four batters but allowing
two hits and a run, and Max
Dyell wrapped up the game,
allowing two more hits and
a run in two-thirds inning of
work.
The top-ranked Alabama
softball team continued its
winning ways as it improved
to 25-0 on the season and
6-0 in Southeastern Confer-
ence play on the strength of


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 22,2012


a 4-0 week. Alabama ven-
tured across the country to
down No. 14 Oregon, 5-1, on

long road trip ,to host Mis-
sissippi. The Tide swept the
Rebels in its first SEC home
series of the season, open-
ing the three-game set with
a 12-2, run-rule victory Fri-
day night. UA downed UM,
10-7, Saturday night, before
using the mercy rule once
again in a 12-1 thumping,
Sunday afternoon. The 25-0
start equals the second best
start in school history as the
Crimson Tide rattled off 25
wins to start the season in
2007.
Seven Gators collabo-
rated for 10 hits Sunday,
as the No. 4 Florida softball
team completed its eighth
straight series sweep over
South Carolina with a 7-3
finale at Katie Seashole
Pressly Stadium. A total of
1,218 Gator fans came out to
witness UF's 26th straight
victory over the Gamecocks
(19-12, 2-6 SEC). The Or-
ange and Blue improved to
26-2 overall, 7-1 in league
play with Sunday's win as
Lauren Haeger and Sami
Fagan (Dunnellon) both had
multiple-hit performances,
Haeger with three hits (3-
for-4) and S. Fagan with
two (2-for-3). Haeger scored
a run and drove three in,
while Fagan scored three
and drove in one herself.

threw candy and beads to


the crowd.
The parade' proceeded

April 10 public hearing set



Vote on new TDC building postponed


By DOTTY NIST
An April 20 public hear-
ing has been scheduled in
connection with a proposal
to build a new South Walton
Tourist Development Coun-
cil (TDC) facility directly
south of the U.S. 331/U.S.
98 intersection.
This would be on an 11.9-


acre site that is part of the
Point Washington State
Forest.
The decision to hold the
public hearing took place at
the March 13 Walton Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) meeting at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex. It followed TDC


Executive Director Dawn
Moliterno's request for ap-
proval of working terms that
would be incorporated into a
memorandum of agreement
with the Florida Forest Ser-
vice regarding the 11.9-acre
site.
The TDC's office and
visitor center are currently


located at the northeast
corner of the U.S. 331/U.S.
98 intersection on 1.1 acres
of forest property that is
leased to the county, on a
50-year lease at a rate of $1
per year. The existing lease
for the property calls for it
to be restored to predevelop-
ment condition at such time


as it is no longer under its
current use.
A number of years ago
the tourism council began to
actively explore a new loca-
tion for the organization's
visitor center or for both
its office and visitor center.

Brad Pickel recently had
big news to share on plans
for Walton County's second
large-scale beach nourish-
ment project.
On March 13, the beach
management consultant
for the South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council
(TDC) provided a morning
update to the tourism coun-
cil, and later on he updated
the Walton County Board of
County Commissioners at
their meeting in the Walton
Courthouse Annex.
Pickel and the TDC have
been working since 2002 to
pursue federal funding for
the project. These efforts
were emphasized by a focus
on the part of the state be-
ginning in 2009, on beach
projects determined to be in
the national interest, in or-
der to leverage federal fund-
ing for these projects.
"It is now a federal proj-
ect," Pickel announced on
March 13 in reference to the
local initiative.
Pickel also. said that all
beachfront' contained in the
four areas proposed for inclu-
sion in the large-scale resto-
ration project along CR-30A
have now been deemed criti-
cally eroded. This- will pro-
vide for longer stretches of
beach to be nourished, add-
ing to the durability of the

Finance Director

VOTE


This was prompted by the
four-laning of the section
of U.S. 331 south of the bay
bridge, which was complet-
ed in spring 2010. The road
construction eliminated the
curb cut that previously
provided access to the TDC
building for motorists trav-
eling south on U.S. 331.
. At the March 13 BCC
meeting, Moliterno went
into the history of the plans
for the new facility on the
state forest site, which had
begun with an April 2011
decision by the tourism
council to recommend that
she. and TDC staff negoti-
ate with the forest service to
obtain the 11.9-acre site. In
June 2011, the proposed re-
location of the visitor center
and office to the site was in-
cluded in the TDC's strategic
plan, which was approved
by the BCC on June 14, Mo-
literno noted. On June 28,
the BCC approved a resolu-
tion of support for the TDC's
negotiations with the state
to obtain the site. Then, on
March 13, 2012, the morn-
ing of the BCC meeting, the
tourism council had voted to
recommend approval of the
working terms for an agree-
ment with the forest ser-
vice.
Moliterno maintained
that these decisions had met
all requirements, including
those pertaining to public
notification.
As envisioned, the new
facility would include a na-
ture and education center
with boardwalks through
the Point Washington State
Forest connecting with the
existing Long Leaf Trail.
The trail runs east and
west through the middle of
the state forest. The facil-
ity would be known as the
"South Walton Discovery
Center."
Under the proposed
working terms, rather than
the site of the existing TDC
building undergoing restora-
tion, the existing TDC build-
ing site would be transferred
to the forest service and the
existing building donated
for use as administrative of-
fices for the agency.
Moliterno said the draft
agreement composed on the
basis of the working terms


would be. presented to the
state Acquistion and Resto-
ration Council (ARC), which
would hold two public hear-
ings on the proposal. Those
hearings would take place
at the state level.
An additional request by
Moliterno on behalf of the
TDC was for the BCC to
authorize bids to be sought
for architectural/design ser-
vices on the South Walton
Discovery Center, which
would allow public hear-
ings to take place locally to
gather input on the design
of the facility and features
the public would like to see
incorporated with it.
Moliterno addressed ques-
tions that had been raised
by the public about the pro-
posed facility. One question
had been whether TDC'bed
tax funds could legally be
used to build the facility.
Others had maintained that
a 1999 settlement agree-
ment in connection with the
county's acquisition of the
Government and Education
Center property had in ef-
fect barred the .11.9-acre
property from being used for
this purpose.
Clay Adkinson, TDC at-
torney, said he had reviewed
the issues and that in his
opinion they would not stop
the proposal from moving
forward.
Moliterno said she had
also sought an opinion from
the Florida Attorney Gen-
eral's Office on the funding
question. She said she an-
ticipated it taking several
months to obtain an an-
swer.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander asked if the
TDC had previously signed
a lease for the 11.9-acre
property and sent it to the
Florida Forest Service.
Moliterno responded that
the forest service had sent
examples of leases that the
agency had used in the past
and had asked the TDC staff
which one would work best.
She said the TDC staff had
selected one example and
sent it back to the forest ser-
vice.
Moliterno explained that
all the BCC was being asked
to decide that afternoon was
that the working terms


were agreeable to them for
purposes of proceeding with
the state process for the pro-
posal.
Several citizens com-
mented on the proposal.
Anita Page maintained
that land should be removed
from conservation only as
a last resort. "This is a re-
source that belongs to the
people of Florida," she said.
Page added that indication
of other sites being pursued
by the TDC was lacking. She
urged that the commission-
ers refrain from acting on
the working terms and the
permission for bids, at least
until "fundamental issues"
had been addressed, includ-
ing obtaining the opinion
from the attorney general.
She suggested. that land in
the South Walton Govern-
mental and Educational
Center be considered.
"This is the beginning...,
of a public process," Coun-
ty Commission Chairman
Scott Brannon asserted.
"You're telling the state
that Walton County wants
this piece of property," Page
countered.
"Yes ma'am," Brannon
responded, adding that this
was a step that was "con-
sistent" with previous deci-
sions by the BCC.
Page said what she was
hearing was that this was
the public's last opportunity
to weigh in on whether the
conservation land would be
pursued for the TDC facil-
ity or if alternative parcels
would be considered.
Brannon said this was
correct but that there had
been other such opportuni-
ties. He indicated that there
had been two such public
hearings and that there
were still "a lot of what-ifs."
Brannon said there had been
discussion of mitigation by
adding other property to the
forest, and that opportuni-
ties to do that could be ex-
plored.
Page said she wished that
public hearings had been
held on the issue that had
been "advertised as exactly
what it is."
,Susan Paladini argued
that the June 28 resolu-
tion, which the BCC had
approved in support of the


By BRUCE COLLIER
Walton County Finance
Director William Imfeld has
turned in a letter of resigna-
tion.
Walton County Admin-
istrator Greg Kisela said
that Imfeld's letter, which
was handed in on Tuesday
morning (March 20) did
not indicate a reason, Im-
feld has given the county 60
days, with resignation effec-
tive May 17. A copy of the
letter was not available at
press time, nor was Imfeld
available for comment.
The county will choose a
new director by recruitment
and selection process, and
the selected candidate will
be brought before the com-
missioners for confirmation.
Kisela reportedly said they


TDC in negotiating to obtain
the parcel, had not been on
the agenda for the meeting
at which it was considered.
She noted that the item had
been an add-on. "It wasn't
advertised," she said.
Paladini added that when
something of this nature is
approved as part of a strate-
gic plan, "the public has no
idea."
Jacquee Markel spoke of
the recent partnership be-
tween the BCC and citizens
regarding state funding for
the widening of U.S. 331,
calling it a very good exam-
ple of partnership. "Citizens
want to be involved...there
is no partnership here," she
said of the TDC initiative.
Markel observed that a
BCC approval would move
the TDC building issue to
the state level, and that
even if citizens could get off
work for the state hearings,
they would, have to drive
over two hours to weigh in
on those. "We live here, and
we want to talk to you," she
told the commissioners.
Markel said she thought a
discovery center was a great
idea. "I think the big issue
here is the location of the
building," she explained.
Jim Bagby commented
that, if the BCC did not ad-
vertise a public hearing on
this topic, "that decision is
like it never happened."
"It was not a public hear-
ing," Moliterno responded
regarding the meeting in
question.
District 2 Commissioner
Kenneth Pridgen comment-
ed that there were many
unanswered questions. He
suggested putting off action
and getting those questions
answered.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander agreed,
calling for a hearing on the
topic in order to gather pub-
lic input. She suggested set-
ting that public hearing in
conjunction with the BCC's
first regular meeting in
April. Pridgen moved to do
so, and his motion carried
unanimously.

The meeting is scheduled
for 4 p.m. on April 10 at the
South Walton Courthouse
Annex.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 22,2012


Arf Clips


('-(j [ Il e 7 L t o i


The roads are packed, spring breakers are
crowding the restaurants and it's all-out tourist
season on the Emerald Coast. But despite the in-
flux of those college-age partiers that seem to have
no regard for locals, we have to remember that it
is their money that keeps us afloat.


Like any tourists destina-
tion, we thrive from the al-
mighty tourist dollar. There is
no industry such as casinos,
manufacturing plants, ship
building, or any other type of
massive employee, that helps
this. economy thrive, except
for the thousands that pour
through this area annually.
Spring break, that always
starts around the end of Febru-
ary and goes until the first of
April, is the kick-off for many
businesses that close for the
shoulder season, usually from
mid-November, all the way
until the end of February. But,
now that mid-March is here and
most every business is bursting
with tourists business, the Em-
erald Coast has shed its winter
cap, and is applying the sun-
screen.
For many, that have either
retired, or moved here for peace
and -quite, this is a time that
they despise, and have pub-
licly spoken against. They have
involved commissioners, the
sheriffs department, code en-
forcement, and have even gone
as far as taking the law into
their own hands.
It has been a constant battle
between business owners that-
cater to the tourist base, and
those who want this area all
to themselves. Well, believe it
or not, Walton County and the
rest of the Emerald Coast is


not a major region of commerce
and industry, and this is all we
have to offer.
There are thousands of
miles of beaches that line the
Gulf States, the Eastern Sea-
board, the Western Seaboard,
and the Caribbean. And with
all that beach frontage, there
are hundreds of thousands of
employees that make their liv-
ing servicing those who chose
to walk on their beaches.
Despite the fact that we live
here because of the beautiful
waters, pristine countryside,
sugar-sand beaches, and lush
forest, it brings the truth to
mind "pretty don't pay the
bills!" We must depend on the
tourist and service industry
and jobs to sustain our way of
life and it must be the most
important aspects to' take into
consideration, when deciding
to relocate and make this area
home.

Ask those in New York City,
Los Angeles, Miami, Paris,
even Pensacola and Jackson-
ville, and they will tell you the
,importance of having a fluid
and non-stop flow of tourist
traffic, into their respective cit-
ies. The surprising fact is, is
that tourism is not even their
most lucrative industry, but
without it, they would not be
able to maintain any govern-
ment services such as roads,


bridges, hospitals, schools, or
anything else that taxes go to
support and maintain.
One of the biggest arguments
and disputes over the past five
or six years, is the wedding is-
sue. An issue that has sparked
name-calling, defacing of prop-
erty, lawsuits, and battles be-
tween neighbors. It's an ongo-
ing fight to sustain the wedding
and event dollar, against those
who want no activity on "their"
beach.
The wedding and event in-
dustry has now taken the work
into its own hands publicity,
marketing, using the worldwide
web and thrown the fight back
to the county commissioners
and those few residents com-
plaining. The industry has em-
barked on a massive PR cam-
paign, that will see even more
brides making their way to the
sandy shores of south Walton.
Part of the campaign includes


mending wounds that this fight
has caused, in reference to the
numerous complaints, and
public disgruntlement that has
been splashed across newspa-
pers all over the nation, and on
television stations throughout
the South. The positive action
of the wedding and event in-
dustry has also prompted other
businesses, not directly affect-
ed with that industry, to be-
gin their own mail-outs, email
blasts, Facebook postings, and
magazine ads, in hopes of get-
ting more of the business down
here.
For anyone that is in the ser-
vice and hospitality industry,
the tourist dollar is the way to
feed themselves and their fam-
ilies. Seeing reports from the
media about the problems and
"in-fighting" going on among
businesses and residents, has
also affected them and their
wallets.

The bottom line for many in
the event, wedding and tourism
industry, is that these business
owners have poured their life
savings into these establish-
ments. Not just those who have
rental companies, florists, or
wedding houses, but those who
have restaurants, bars, hair
salons, bike rentals, bed and
breakfast, cleaning services,
and so on.
The service industry employs
thousands of locals, and there-
fore pays for the living of many
other thousands who benefit
from that service employee's
paycheck. It is the domino ef-
fect at its best form, and when
one piece gets toppled, the rest
are sure to follow.
The local tourist develop-
ment council offices, (Bay,
Okaloosa and Walton) are all
reporting numbers up for 2011,
and have high hopes for 2012.
The wedding and event indus-
try has been one of the factors
that helped mitigate the eco-
nomic setback that happened
in April 2010 with the BP oil
spill.
Many businesses are still
trying to tackle the fact that
the economy, and now the soar-
ing gas prices, will also be a ma-


jor factor in tourism this year.
Even with major ad campaigns
being conducted by the various
TDC offices, when there is no
money, there is no "funny!"
As spring break continues
to trickle in; tourists and those
college and high school-age stu-
dents, we have to just sit back
and go with the flow, or go with
the no-flow of traffic, on our
thoroughfares. As' summer ap-
proaches, and the traffic comes
to a snail's crawl, be even more
patient.
For without the vehicles
with all the out-of-state tags,
the long lines at. restaurants,
and the constant flashing of the
brake lights, the crowded park-
ing lots, and the sight of hun-
dreds of brides on the beaches,
we would be just another poor
county, trying to cut and save
every dollar. We would have
to cut services, programs and
even publicly elected officers
from the county payroll.
Well the latter part of that
last sentence, might not be a
bad idea. But like the old say-
ing, "with the good, comes the
bad, and with the tourists,
comes the dollar!" If just for a
week, let them see what life is
like for us, year round.


ON MARCH 24, THE ANNUAL RT. 30A Antique and
Vintage Car Show, returns to Rosemary Beach, from 10 a.m
- 5 p.m. Cars produced prior to 1982, are eligible for entry
and numerous prizes will be awarded in various categories.

Home buyers



can expect



higher FHA fees


From ECAR
Home buyers who use a
Federal Housing Admin-
istration (FHA)-insured
mortgage to purchase a
home will soon be paying
higher fees. In an effort to
recoup some of its depleted
reserves, which have suf-
fered in recent years, and to
encourage a return of more
private capital to the hous-
ing market, the FHA will in-
crease two types of fees that
borrowers must pay.
Beginning April 1, FHA
will increase the annual
mortgage insurance pre-
mium for all loans, bringing
the total cost from 1.15 per-
cent of the loan amount to
1.25 percent. Starting June
1, jumbo loan premiums
(loans over $625,500) will
see an additional increase
of 0.25 percent of a percent-


age point, bringing the to-

creased fees are an unfortu-
nate result of the struggling
housing market. "FHA has
been and remains a critical
tool in restoring the health of
the housing market, and en-
suring its safety and sound-
ness is essential," said Judi
Rutland, ECAR president.
"However, once-the Mutual
Mortgage Insurance Fund
is stabilized, FHA should
reduce premiums commen-
surate with risk."
The impact of the new
fees would mean a higher
monthly payment of ap-
proximately $14 per month
for a typical borrower. For
example, a buyer with a
3.5-percent down payment
with a mortgage of $150,000
can now expect to pay an
upfront mortgage premium
of $2,625 compared to a pre-
vious premium of $1,725,


which most people would
wrap into their total mort-
gage amount.
FHA has insured more
than 37 million .mortgages
since its inception in 1934.
Many first-time home buy-
ers rely on FHA-insured
loans to purchase a home,
which only require 3.5-per-
cent down payment and of-
ten have less stringent credit
requirements. The National
Association of Realtors es-
timates that one-third of re-
cent buyers purchased their
homes with an FHA-insured
mortgage.
In recent years FHA's re-
serves have suffered from
the rising number of hom-
eowners who have defaulted
on their mortgages, as well
as a continuing decline in
home values. FHA main-
tains two reserve funds. The
first provides reserves to
cover each mortgage that's
insured for 30 years; the
second is a congressionally
required 2-percent reserve,
which FHA draws on first to
cover losses.
The FHA expects to
bring in about $1.25 billion
through September 2013
with the increased fees.
FHA also expects to receive
an additional $1 billion from
the recent $26 billion settle-
ment among 49 attorneys
general, the Obama admin-
istration and five of the big-
gest mortgage services.
"FHA has long played a
critical role in the nation's
housing finance system,"
said Rutland. "It has always
been a leader in insuring
safe, low down payment
mortgages to responsible,
qualified borrowers. It's a
shame the ongoing housing
crisis has caused FHA to
increase their fees, but Re-
altors are confident that
the market will recover and
FHA's reserves will stabi-
lize."

ciation of Realtors is a not-

Pickel said federal funds
have already been secured
to cover not only the feasi-
bility study for the work but
also the preliminary engi-
neering design---and that
the account for the portion
of the bed tax collected by
the TDC for beach nourish-
ment is sufficient to cover
the matching amount re-
quired.
He was optimistic that
the project would be ready
to go in a 2015 time frame.
Pickel also reported Wal-
ton County's initial large-
scale beach nourishment
project, completed in 2007,
to have been a "total suc-
cess." He said the work
has exceeded expectations,
with over 90 percent of the
sand volume added through
the project still .remaining
in place. That project had
covered approximately five
miles of beachfront in west-
ern Walton County.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 22,2012


WCTA annual meeting:


nominations, bridge


and highway issues


Story and photos by
BEN GRAFTON
In a long session, a crowd
of about 30 people attended
the Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association (WCTA) 30th
annual meeting on Thurs-
day, March 15 in the Coun-
ty's Coastal Branch Library
meeting room. Outgoing
president Bonnie McQuis-
ton welcomed the audience
including elected officials
Tax Collector Rhonda Skip-
per, Supervisor of Elections
Bobby Beasley and Property
Appraiser Patrick Pilcher.
McQuiston addressed
the membership about the
history of WCTA from its
founding in 1982 until the
present day emphasizing its
contributions to the area.
McQuiston was followed by
Dr. Don Riley who spoke
briefly about his hopes for
the participation of young-
er residents in WCTA and
about the need to pursue
truth and justice in the
American way. He present-
ed McQuiston with a plaque
inscribed with thanks and
appreciation for her leader-
ship of the organization.


Mary Neilson, WCTA
treasurer, delivered her an-
nual report noting that that
the primary WCTA expense
item is the publication of its
newsletter which is avail-
able electronically and in
print. She also observed that
a new class of membership,
condominium associations,
was now authorized by the
Association.
Jim Rice, handicapped by
recent rotator cuff surgery,
addressed two challenges for
the nominating committee:
First, an effort to get new
board members from north
of the bay. He said, "I call
them the NOBs and those
south of the bay the SOBs.
He then welcomed J.B. Hil-
lard, who is knowledgeable
about highway and bridge
issues, back to the board.
Second, in order to reduce
the size of the board to make
it easier to have a quorum
at meetings, the board is re-
duced to 13 members. Nomi-
nees, in addition to Hillard,
for terms ending in 2014
are: Bobby Boyd, Suzanne
Harris, Emmett Hildreth,
Mary Neilson, Jim Rice, and


Dan Scupin. The nomina-
tions were accepted by the
membership.
Discussion turned to cur-
rent issues including the re-
cent meeting in Tallahassee
between the Walton County
Board of County Commis-
sioners (BCC) and the Flori-
da Department of Transpor-
tation (DOT) about widening
U.S. 331 to four lanes and
constructing a second south-
bound bridge over the bay
immediately west of the ex-
isting span. The DOT was
reported to offer additional
help in funding the U.S. 331
work. In return the county
was asked to contribute $75
million to the project. DOT
has no preference whether
the county's funds come
from sales taxes or from
a toll on the southbound
side of the bridge, but if the
county does not provide the
requested funding, the of-
fer will be withdrawn and
the DOT funds will be used
somewhere else in the state.
Following this development
the BCC opted to delay the
plebiscite, on whether to use
or not to use sales tax rev-

enue as the funding source
for the county's $75 million
share of costs, by about two
weeks
According to County Ad-
ministrator Greg Kisela the
development offers a "...once
in a lifetime opportunity,"
that would allow U.S. 331 to
become four lanes from U.S
98 to Interstate 10 in 5 1/2
years.
It was reported that a
county financial analysis
shows that if a bridge toll
was used to finance the $75
million county share of costs
then the payoff of the debt
would occur in about 30
years. If the use of a half-
cent sales tax was used, pay-
off would be done in about
20 years.
Strong opinions were
voiced about whether the
bridge should be built with
toll revenue, from tax rev-
enue or even not at all.
Comments noted that the
half-cent sales tax would
be more acceptable to the
business community than
the once proposed one-cent,
tax. It was said that an or-
dinance enabling the sales
tax increase would contain
wording to automatically
drop the sales tax when the
debt was paid. It was also
said that the electronic toll
system is more expensive
