DFS Council considers


live-streaming meetings


over the Internet


By REID TUCKER
The DeFuniak Springs
City Council heard a pre-
sentation regarding the es-
timated start-up costs asso-
ciated with live-streaming
video of meetings over the
Internet but decided to con-
tinue investigating the mat-
ter before making a deci-
sion.
Robert Nelson, owner of I
Fix Computers, Inc., which
provides IT service to the
city, presented informa-
tion at the March 2 meeting
about streaming video of fu-
ture Council meetings over
the Internet in real time.
Nelson acquired a quote
from. a company involved in
a similar project in Panama
City Beach that showed
start-up costs to be $4,060
plus a monthly fee of $125
for a total yearly cost of
$5,560, with recurring costs
to come in at $1,500. How-
ever, Nelson and a colleague
devised a means to use only
one camera rather than the
two called for in the original
plan, which could reduce
start up costs by $2,250, to
bring in first-year costs to
$3,330.
The Council asked Nel-
son to continue looking into
the matter and to present
his findings for the board's
approval at a future date.
The other main presen-
tation from a community
member in attendance at the
meeting came from Jeannine
Cole, who requested that the

Freeport Easter


Egg Hunt


announced


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport City
Council meeting of March
22 Fire Chief Ben Greenslait
announced that the annual
Easter egg hunt will be held
at the Sports Complex on
April 7 beginning at noon.
Some 12,000 eggs are be-
ing prepared for the event.
Special times are being set
for children of different ages
and with different needs.
Greenslait advised the
Council that, with warmer
weather, calls are being re-
ceived about the opening
date for the swimming pool.
He will provide a draft flyer
for a discussion at the next
Council meeting about the
schedule for pool opening,
operating days, times and
events.
Greenslait asked the
Council to approve purchase
of a replacement for the Fire
Department's 1997 refrig-
erator which has quit run-
ning. The expense was not
budgeted. The city can get
a 15-percent discount on the
floor price for the unit. The
request was approved.
The fire department is
moving toward providing
an inside decontamination
room at the station. In order
to provide room, equipment
now stored inside must be
relocated. Construction of
either a 30 by 36-foot or a
30 by 48-foot pole barn is
proposed to provide shel-
tered storage, facing Ad-


ams Street, outside of the
main building. Boafs and
the old fire truck would be
moved into the pole barn.
The Council approved going
ahead with the 30 by 48-foot
barn.
The fire department re-
port for the months of Janu-
ary and February shows
that a total of 175 calls were
made compared to 131 calls
during the same period last
year. In February 81 percent
of the calls were to provide
medical assistance.
Preble-Rish engineer
Charlie Cotton reported that
both the North Bay water
main and the energy grant
projects are on track and
are projected to be finished
in April. The abandoned fi-
ber optic line has not slowed
the work on the North Bay
project.
Cotton also reported that
the city's waste water per-
mit has been submitted.
The County Public Health
Department has requested a
waiver of fees for a one-day
use of the Community Cen-
ter to present a program.
The scheduled date will be
provided later. The Council
approved the request.
Drawings for two carports
to be used to cover city gen-
erators have been received.
Efforts are being made to
keep the costs down. The
carports would be anchored

Council amend the city code
to include a contract for the
city attorney position that
would include provisions for
competitive advertising and
term limitations. The Coun-
cil did not take action at the
time of the meeting.
When it came to matters
in need of a vote, the Coun-
cil had no fewer than 12
items on the agenda requir-
ing action from the board at
the March 26 meeting and.
all but one passed with the
original motion intact.
That one motion that did
not pass was a call from'
Councilman Mac Work to
re-advertise for the city's fit,
nance director position, va-
cated when then-finance di-
rector Sara Bowers became
the interim and later full-
time city manager. Work
originally proposed to re-
advertise for a period of two
weeks in order to hopefully
attract more applicants, as
so far only two individuals
had submitted r6sum6s for
the Council's- consideration
for the position. However,
while Work was for keep-
ing both current applicants
in the mix, he was against
Bowers' recommendation
to change some of the posi-
tion's qualifications.
The motion failed 1-4
when put to the vote, and
the Council decided to set
the interview date with the
two prospective employ-
ees for April 9 at 9 a.m. A
regularly scheduled Coun-


cil meeting will follow that
same evening.
The Council voted 5-0 to
approve a sanitation exemp-
tion for Bob Campbell, owner
of Gulf-Comm Electric LLC,
a business he runs from his
residential property. Camp-
bell's property was annexed
by the city about three years
ago and during that time
he continued to use Walton
County's garbage collection
services as he had prior to
annexation. Campbell ar-
gued that, since he receives
neither DeFuniak Springs
Police nor city fire protection
services, living as he does
outside the city limits prop-
er, he asked the Council to
exempt him from a require-
ment to have city garbage
collection services, which
are $115 per month versus
$65 per month through the
county.
Planning Director Greg
Scoville presented two items
to the Council members for
their approval.
The first, discussed at
the last meeting on March
12, was a request to amend
the city's land development
regulations as they relate to
the timeframe of site plan
review for the purpose of
providing expedited per-
mitting. The need for the
change, Scoville said, is to
help local businesses qual-
ify for BP oil spill recovery
funds. The Council voted 5-0

Mike Adkinson.




WCSO introduces



Volunteer K-9 Posse


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) show-
cased the newest addition to
the Department, the WCSO
Volunteer K-9 Posse. The
volunteer team work as a
group known as SW PAN-
SAR (Southwest Panhandle
Search and Rescue). The
group has worked with vari-
ous agencies throughout the
southeastern United States.
The group has worked on
the Caylee Anthony case,
helped search for victims


during the Tuscaloosa torna-
does, and closer to home, the
Colin Hale case from 2009.
Hale was an elderly gentle-
man that wondered away
from his home in Sandestin
and was located in a block
of woods not far from his
home. All of the assistance
that SW PANSAR has giv-
en has been at no cost and
members say that they rely
on 100 percent donations.
The K-9s are trained to
pick up on live and deceased


human scent and are able
to cover ground that is not
easily accessible to humans.
Not only do these specialized
K-9s cover land, but water
as well. As a matter of fact,
they recently assisted in
locating the missing Coast
Guard officers who crashed
into Mobile Bay.
In addition to search and
rescue, several of the dogs
are trained in emotional

WCTC office driver license service

transition accomplished successfully


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 29,2012


Last Monday Tax Col-
lector Rhonda Skipper and
staff began providing driver
license services in Walton
County. The week revealed
a nearly doubling of phone
calls and increase of approxi-
mately 280 lobby customers.
Despite increased customer
volume, wait times aver-
aged under six minutes.
The increased customer
volume was anticipated and
minor robby modifications
were made late last year
in the DeFuniak Springs
office to provide more seat-
ing for the expected traffic
increase. In a review of cus-
tomer transactions the first
week of March, prior to the
start of driver license servic-
es, the Tax Collector's Call
Center answered 580 phone
calls and 469 lobby custom-


ers were assisted. Last week
the Call Center answered
1063 phone calls and 749
lobby customers were as-
sisted in DeFuniak Springs.
Due to the increased cus-
tomer volume and the ex-
tended time often required
to complete driver license
and title work transactions,
appointments are available
for both of these services. To
schedule an appointment,
contact the Tax Collector's
Office at (850) 892-8121.
Driver license services are
provided Monday through
Friday from 8:30 a.m. to
3 p.m. in the DeFuniak
Springs office.
While driver license ser-
vices are currently only
available in DeFuniak
Springs, the Tax Collector's
office is finalizing plans for
lobby modifications in the


South Walton office and
plans to bring driver license
services there once those
renovations are complete.
Individuals in need of
driver license services are
encouraged to visit www.
gathergoget.com to learn
about the new documents
required for renewing or
first time issuance of a driv-
er license or identification
card.
The DeFuniak Springs of-
fice is located in the Walton
County Courthouse at 571
U.S. 90 East in DeFuniak
Springs, FL.
The Tax Collector's Of-
fice welcomes opportuni-
ties to speakto community
groups and educate them. on
the new driver license and
identification card require-
ments.


WCSO reaches out to community

through drug education program


The Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO) announc-
es that it will be starting a
new program to reach out to
members of the community.
The "Drug Wise Communi-
ties" program is a presenta-
tion conducted by members
of the Walton County Sher-
iffs Office to educate the
public about drug usage and
the signs to spot narcotic ac-
tivity within their neighbor-
hoods.
Lt. Bruce Maddox of the
Criminal Investigations
Division said that this pro-
gram gets the community
and various organizations
involved by being proactive.
The program teaches Wal-
ton County citizens about
the dangers of drug use, the
signs of drug use and manu-
facturing, along with sta-
tistics on drug use among
children. By empowering
the citizens with this knowl-
edge, they can help the sher-
iffs office identify criminal
activity when it occurs and
help make the streets safer.

Paxton Town Council approves creation of Miss Paxton pageant


-By REID TUCKER
The city of Paxton will
soon host a pageant open
to participants city wide,
thus giving local ladies the
chance to compete at the
Miss National Peanut Fes-
tival Pageant for the first
time ever.
The decision to allow a
pageant in the city's name
came via a unanimous vote
of approval by the Paxton
Town Council, which con-
vened its regularly sched-
uled monthly meeting on
Tuesday, March 20. Paxton
School employee Marlene
Andrews requested that
the Council allow the city
to hold such a pageant for
several reasons, all of them
advantageous to either the
participants, the town itself
or both. Andrews, who has
directed the annual school-
only pageant for the last
five years, said the future
Miss Paxton will not only be


eligible to compete for the
prestigious Miss National
Peanut Festival title on, but
she will also serve as the
city's representative at lo-
cal events and those farther
afield.
"It would represent our
town in the highest regard,"
Andrews said. "We're a very
unique little town, but no-
body knows that about us
unless [they] live here. If we
could have a pageant system
here then our girls could
represent [Paxton] and peo-
ple would understand why
our community is so unique.
I think our girls would rep-
resent us proudly."
Competing at "Peanut,"
as the pageant is called
for short, teaches the girls
participating critical pub-
lic speaking skills and self-
sufficiency, while. winning
the crown means "scholar-
ship money galore," An-
drews said. Furthermore,


establishing a pageant sys-
tem itself will cost the city
nothing, with all money
needed to host the event be-
ing generated by entry fees,
sponsorships and fundrais-
ers. For instance, Andrews
directed the first annual
Relay for Life pageant the
previous Saturday, and the
event brought in $2,400 for
charity alone. .
After casting a 4-0 vote
(Councilman Charles Cook
was not in attendance at
the meeting) in support, the
Council directed city staff to
draft a letter to the National
Peanut Festival Pageant or-
ganization stating the city's
intent to allow Andrews and
other pageant directors to
hold a preliminary qualify-
ing-round contest in Pax-
ton's name.
Andrews said the upcom-
ing beauty competition will
be open to female residents
or to those attend Paxton


School. Contestants for the
Miss Paxton title should be
between the ages of 17 and
21 and participants at the
Little Miss level must be in
first grade. All participants
will be required to show a
notarized proof of residency
within the city limits.
No date for the new Miss
Paxton pageant was set at
the meeting, but details
are forthcoming. The Miss
National Peanut Festival
contest will take place, as
always, this fall in Dothan,
Ala.
In other Town Coun-
cil news, Mayor Hayward
Thomas announced that a
flashing caution light can
likely be installed at the in-
tersection of U.S. 331 and
County Highway 147. Thom-
as, who spoke with Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion officials regarding the


project under discussion
at the last several Council
meetings, said additional
approvals were needed be-
fore the traffic light could
be installed, but he was con-
fident that it will proceed
smoothly.
The Council also unani-
mously approved several'
other measures in order, in-
cluding renewing the yearly
$8,050 agreement between
the city, FDOT and the Wal-
ton County ARC for road-
side maintenance within
the city limits. The board
also voted 4-0 in favor of a
motion made by Council-
man Travis McMillian to
renew the contract with
Gulf Comm Electric LLC
for the maintenance of the
city's emergency generator
system. Another unanimous
vote went the way of a mo-
tion to have the city pay for


traveling expenses for the
mayor and Council Chair-
man Bobby Kemp to attend
a Northwest Florida League
of Cities get-together in
Panama City Beach.
Finally, the Council ap-
proved the use of miscella-
neous expenditures money
from within the general
operating fund to upgrade
water lines on E.M. White
road from 1 /-inch to 2-inch
lines. An exact dollar figure
for the project had not been
calculated, but the plan was
to reimburse the city's cof-
fers using funds generated
from impact fees, which re-
quires designation to a par-
ticular public works proj-
ect. Salary, materials and
equipment costs will all be
factored in before the funds
are transferred from the im-
pact fee, account back into
the general operating fund.

Holy





smoke


By BR UCE COLLIER
I got a press release emailed to me this week from Sena-
tor Greg Evers, on a bill recently passed by the state Leg-
islature and signed by Governor Scott. I downloaded the
bill, SB 98. For a law, it's pretty short, barely 1 1/2 pages.
The bill authorizes school district school boards to "adopt
a resolution allowing the use of an inspirational message,
including prayers of invocation or benediction, at secondary
school commencement exercises or any other noncompul-
sory student assembly."
We've seen these before, but this one has a slight varia-
tion. The new law does not specify the wording of these res-
olutions, leaving that to the individual school boards, but
contains several requirements.
First, the prayer of invocation or benediction "is at the
discretion of the student government." Second, it must be
given by "student volunteers." Third, it must be "nonsectar-
ian and nonproselytizing in nature." Fourth, schoolol per-
sonnel may not participate in, or otherwise influence any
student in, the determination of whether to use prayers of
invocation or benediction."
The bill gives school boards the power to write resolu-
tions allowing students to draft their own prayers, and pro-
hibits school personnel from participating in or influencing
the students' choice to do that. Nevertheless, those prayers
have to be "nonsectarian" and "nonproselytizing."
So, who reviews the prayer to make sure it complies with
those requirements? If not school personnel, am I right in
supposing it,to be the students? If so, which students? The
ones that can define "nonsectarian" and "nonproselytizing?"
And who checks their work, the. College of Cardinals and
the ACLU?
While we're at it, what exactly is a "nonsectarian"
prayer? I've heard any number of prayers that don't pros-
elytize (that's usually the sermon's job), but does nonsec-
tarian mean it's OK to mention God, but mum's the word
on Jesus? Or if you mention Jesus, do you have to add Mu-
hammad and Buddha? Or should you just mince words al-
together and offer up fuzzy prayers to "the creator" or "the
universe?" The messy truth is that people of most faiths
who pray and mean it when they do- would rather keep si-
lent than take part in watered-down prayers-by-committee.
It's a question of conscience, tricky and elusive.
Evers applauds this apparently nonpartisan bill, saying
it "supports the free exercise of religion by allowing stu-
dents to offer voluntary inspirational messages at school
events," adding that it is a "tremendous victory for the First
Amendment freedoms of Florida students." Yes, I guess it
is, if you don't take people's faiths very seriously.
If Evers had said "this is an excellent example of the
kind of toothless, feel-good cosmetic legislation we poli-
ticians know everyone loves to see, especially in election
years," I might have commended him, if only for his candor-.
Meanwhile, those who labor to eliminate or eviscerate the
practice of faith in all aspects of American society needn't
Seven bother with this one. It bears the seeds df its own de-
struction, the very first time it gets challenged, and you can
take that 6n faith.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MARCH 29,2012


Editor:
This past weekend I attended a family funeral in the
central part of the state. I was struck by what we in Walton
County take for granted. I thought all sheriffs provided as-
sistance with traffic control for a funeral procession. I was
surprised law enforcement assistance is the exception, not
the rule in other counties in Florida. We had one deputy
to handle four busy intersections for a long precession. The


officer handled the challenge of "leap frogging" from one in-
tersection to the next. The next time I see an officer assist-
ing a grieving family I will have a different attitude. Thank
you Sheriff Adkinson, we take too much for granted.

This letter is to let the community know about the Dys-
tonia Group of Southeast Alabama that meets in Dothan.
Dystonia is a neurological condition that causes the body
to contract and spasm involuntarily. I was diagnosed with
cervical dystonia in 2006.
Dystonia is the third most common neurological move-
ment following Parkinson's disease and tremors. Early in
my diagnosis, my family and I searched for information
finding very little.
In October of 2009 Dystonia Support Group became of-
ficial. The support group is a subchapter of the Dystonia
Sinrnirt ( irnn nf Albinmn out of Birmingham. recognized


by the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation. We meet
most second Saturdays of each month at Covenant Method-
ist Church located on U.S. 84 West in Dothan room number
.C116 in the Christian Life Center. We begin around 9:30
a.m. and are usually finished by 11:30 a.m.
You can contact us at Dothan Dystonia Support Group
@gmail.com For more information or to locate the nearest
movement disorder neurologist contact the Dystonia Medi-
cal Research Foundation at www.dystonia-foundation.org

Editor:
Does God live and do miracles still happen in this day
and time?
Remember this is this citizen's opinion and we all know
what they say about opinions! ..
What I'm about to say may offend some of our so callw'd
Christian community! Please look up that word in the
dictionary. No church, race of religion has a monopoly on
God! For you do not have to belong to any church to have
a walk with God and have God in your heart. And life and
have the Kingdom of Heaven within you!
Now how all this came about before I answer those ques-
tions.
It starts with my fight for my life, which I do not remem-
ber the first three days. That was reported to me by my
loving wife Charis. Now comes the part where God lives
and miracles do happen in this day and time. I feel God was
invited to be with all the wonderful people that were about
to cross my path on my journey.
When my loving wife called 911 I was near death from
what seemed to be flu symptoms. Because of the quickness
and professionalism and skill of our wonderful fire depart-
ment and paramedic staff, they gave me a fighting change
to live.
Now I would like to take a moment to report an injustice
that our lovingly community has placed our local hospital
wrongfully called AKA band aid clinic. Shamefully I had
been one of those to use that phrase.
Once they got me to our wonderful hospital ER again
God was there. For I feel He-had placed Dr. Mike Psikogios
and wonderful staff across my path (miracle).
Through thier skillful knowledge of diabetes and quick-
ness of responding to all my symptoms they wvere able to
save my life without any side effects! This is when I know


Editor:
March 23 marked two years since the biggest invasion
into our personal lives was passed into law. That's when
ObamaCare, which was forced down the American peo-
ple's throat leaving the majority of Americans kicking and
screaming, became law. As it stands now, the Supreme
Court's ObamaCare decision which is to take place next
week should be legally unacceptable because one 6f its
members, Elena Kagan, is not qualified to participate in
the decision. The reason she is not qualified -is because at
the time she was Solicitor General and she had a hand in,
and rallied around the passing of Obamacare.
It is so perfectly clear by law that Justice Kagan must
recuse herself. But guess what? She has refused, and the
Obama team has for months tried to stifle and keep it un-
der cover. It looks as though we are on the verge of witness-
ing a legal battle like we have never seen before. Justice
Kagan's participation in next week's ObamaCare hearings
would make the court's ruling illegal, according to law.
This is the most important Supreme Court case to take
place in many years. If the court rules that ObamaCare is
constitutional, it may be impossible to ever stop the train-


for a,fact that God lives and miracles do still take place in
this day and time. For I should not be alive right now to re-
port this. And you're wondering why and how I can say this.
My blood sugar had reached an unheard of high of 2,300
(normal is about 120) and til be;ahaliya(4npter miracle).
;-Please let us not forget the excellent care fhatjI received
in ICU from all those wonderful, caring, dedicatedd, skillful
and professionals staff which kept a watchful eye over me
as if.I was part of their family to make sure I survived after
the wonderful care I recieved ER .
I continued to recieve the same wonderful care when I
left ICU and went to the floor.
This grateful citizen of the wonderful community that
we live in will not refer to our hospital as a bandaid clinic
again.?
I am a witness and living proof that God lives and mir-
acles still happen in this day and time. No matter who you
are and if you go to church or not God loves us all!
I would like to challenge everybody to take the time to
stop and look at all the beautiful things that our wonderful
community has to offer. As far as I'm concerned we have
our own garden of Eden, a little slice of heaven.And remem-
ber that the Kingdom of Heaven is in all of us and it's the
people that make a community a heaven on earth or a hell
much less a nation.
Let all of us remember to open our eyes and see only the
good. Open our ears to hear only good. And open our mouths
and speak only good. As the saying goes of the three mon-
keys, I see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. Let's all
see God in everyone. And remember God lives and miracles
still happen.

wreck that is coming down the road. Our kids and grand-
kids are the ones who will have to suffer for this travesty.
We have three members of Congress in Florida and we
as concerned citizens need to let them know that Federal
law (28 U.S.C. 455) clearly gives grounds for judgesto dis-
qualify themselves in cases such as this one where Judge
Kagan worked as Solicitor General at the time ObamaC-
are was passed and it should disqualify her. We don't have
much time left, and I'm afraid time is running out for us
to let our voice be heard loud and clear. I still-stand by this
famous quote that reads: "The only thing necessary for the
triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
For those interested in demanding that Justice Kagan
step down from this case on which the Supreme Court will
make a decision on whether or not ObamaCare should be
repealed, call Senator Bill Nelson at (202) 224-5274, Sena-
tor Marco Rubio at (202) 224-3041 and Rep. Jeff Miller at
(202) 225-4136.

Editor:
"Spring begins." My calendar has informed me of the offi-
cial beginning of this refreshing season, although I've felt it
outside for a few weeks now. As a Floridian, I know spring
will be short but it will also be time to break out of your
everyday routine, release some stress, get out of the office
and experience nature in Florida's state parks.
Take the time this season to experience nature with all
five of your senses seeing Florida's vistas, smelling newly
bloomed flowers, feeling the sand between your toes, hear-
ing the sounds of children playing and tasting the treats of
your picnic basket in a state park. Spring is an optimum
season to engross yourself in the natural and cultural re-
sources of Florida's state parks. There are so many oppor-
tunities for new experiences and the special places to con-
tinue your old family traditions.


Sometimes it is a hike in the forest, a walk on the beach,
building sand castles with your kids, watching a sunrise or
a sunset, grilling lunch under a big oak tree, looking for a
bird species to add to your life list or paddling your canoe
on a long stretch of river. It's about immersion, surround-
ing yourself with nature and coming away with a renewed
appreciation for Florida's splendor. Sometimes you need a
slow, relaxing experience, and sometime you might prefer a
fast, exhilarating, experience.
I encourage yo_'to spend time in Florida's award-winning
state parks this season. Savor the atmosphere of spring and
enjoy the Sunshine State in ...the Real FloridaSM.

New Muscogee Creek Tribal Health Center Opens in Bruce


A new, non-profit and
federally qualified health
center will be dedicated
on Saturday, March 31 in
Bruce on the grounds of the
Muscogee Nation of Florida.
Congressman Jeff Miller
will participate in the cel-
ebration, which is part of a
community-wide "Family
Fun Day" which includes
free food, Native American
arts and crafts, free health
screenings and traditional
Native American dances.
The Muscogee Creek
Tribal Health Center is one
of four federally qualified
health centers opened by
PanCare of Florida, Inc.," a
501(c)(3) non-profit organi-
zation which operates den-
tal and health care clinics
in Bay and Walton counties.
These clinics are funded
with contributions, along
with federal, state and pri-
vate foundation grants, to
provide services to individu-
als on Medicaid, Medicare
and on a sliding scale for
those who are uninsured.
This facility in Bruce is.be-
ing opened and staffed by
PanCare of Florida, Inc. and
is made possible through
a $100,000 grant from the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
of Florida Foundation.
Founded in 2001, the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
of Florida (BCBSF) Founda-
tion, Inc. is the philanthrop-
ic affiliate of Blue Cross
and Blue Shield of Florida
(BCBSF). The mission of


the BCBSF Foundation is
to improve the health and
well-being of Floridians and
their communities. Over
the past 11 years, the Foun-
dation has presented nearly
400 grants and awards, to-
taling more than $25 mil-
lion, touching the lives of
millions of Floridians. The
BCBSF Foundation, and
its parent, BCBSF, are in-
dependent licensees of the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
Association, an association
of independent Blue Cross
and Blue Shield companies.
"We are excited to open
this new clinic made pos-
sible by the Blue Cross and
Blue Shield of Florida Foun-
dation" says Mike Hill, pres-
ident and CEO of PanCare


DeFuniak Springs Police
is proud to announce their
Third Annual Rodeo and
their partnering with the
Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Emerald Coast.

The event will feature
barrel racing, bull riding,
vendors and family fun.
The rodeo will take place
on Saturday, April 7, at 7
p.m. at the Walton County
Fairgrounds in DeFuniak
Springs Florida. Gates are


of Florida, Inc., "because we
know how much people on
Medicaid and Medicare need
health care services in this
region of Florida." Lead-
ers of PanCare have opened
three other similar clinics in
Bay and Walton counties.
"Since we are non-profit,"
says Hill, "we can provide
services on what Medicaid
and Medicare can offer us,
along with grants and con-
tributions we receive to cov-
er any shortfalls in patient
services."
Hill says services are not
free at these clinics. "Ev-
eryone pays something," he
says, "whether the patient
pays a small co-pay with
their Medicaid or Medicare
coverage, or $25 on up, de-


schedule to open at 5:30
p.m.
The goal of the rodeo is
to raise funds to help the
Teen Center become self-
sustaining. One of the suc-
cessful attributes of Boys &
'Girls Clubs models across
the country is the ability to
operate through community
donations and fundraisers.
Each center is responsible
for raising funds to pay for
the operating expenses nec-
essary to keep the club go-


pending on their household
income if they do not have
Medicaid or Medicare. The
bottom line is that this is
an empowering health care
program for the patient,
and we are so grateful to the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
of Florida Foundation for
their generous grant, Con-
gressman Miller and his
staff for helping us organize
a day of celebration relat-
ing to the dedication of this
new clinic, the leaders of the
Muscogee Nation of Flori-
da for their partnership in
serving a community in des-
perate need of health care,
and to the many non-profit
organizations and the Bruce
United Methodist Church
and Interfaith Health Coun-


ing. They encourage every-
one to come out and support
the local youth.

Sponsorship opportuni-
ties for the event are avail-
able at www.bgcec.com.
In-kind sponsorships and
donations to help put on a
successful event are also be-
ing sought. If interested in
sponsoring this rodeo, con-
tact Ashley Sweeney at (850)

WCHD offers free glaucoma

screening April 5, 6


Walton County Health
Department has partnered
with the local Lions Club to
offer free glaucoma screen-
ing via the Glaucoma Screen-
ing Van. Regular glaucoma
screenings are important
because glaucoma is a silent
disease and is not reversible.
Glaucoma can lead to vision
loss and, if not treated soon
enough, total blindness.
When treated immediately,
individuals diagnosed with
glaucoma have an opportu-
nity to significantly reduce
the damage the disease can
cause to their eyesight.
No appointment is needed


for the free glaucoma screen-
ings in the Lions Club Glau-
coma Screening Van that
will be located at the Walton
County Health Department
(WCHD) offices. Patients
will be seen on a first-come
first-served basis.
Plan to have your eyes
checked for glaucoma on
Thursday, April 5, between
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the
Walton County Health De-
partment (WCHD), 362 SR-
83, in DeFuniak Springs, or
on Friday, April 6, between
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the
Walton County Health De-
partment, 361 Green Way


Trail in Santa Rosa Beach.
Even though anyone can
develop glaucoma, every-
one over the age of 60 is
considered high risk and
people over age 40 are at
risk. Anyone who is consid-
ered high-risk for glaucoma
is encouraged to attend this
screening. Even individuals
who are not in the high-risk
category will stand to ben-
efit by taking advantage of
the free screening as a pre-
ventative measure to pro-
tect their eyesight.
No appointment needed,
patients seen on first-come
first-served basis.


Chili Cook-Off and Silent Auction
hosted by COPE Crusaders Relay for Life team


COPE Crusaders are ex-
cited to announce a Chili.
Cook-Off and Silent Auc-
tion benefiting their Relay
for Life team campaign. The
Cook-Off will be held on
Saturday, March 31 from 11
a.m. to 1 p.m.
Plan to support the event
by purchasing a $5 ticket
(also available at the door)


and coming out to taste all
the fine chili, then vote for
the favorite. As well as the
cook-off, there will be other
activities including a si-
lent auction and bake sale.
Some of the silent auction
items include a one night
stay at Emerald Towers in
Destin, Wal-Mart gift cards,
Pigs Daddy's gift certificate,


Heavenly Sweets and Treats
certificate, gift basket from
Shear Pleasures, plus more.
The festivities will be
held at the Walton Coun-
ty Fairgrounds on SR-
83 in DeFuniak Springs.

formation.

Choctawhatchee River Soil and

Water Conservation District

2011 ANNUAL REPORT
The Choctawhatchee River Soil and Water Conservation District, which
covers Walton County, Florida had another successful year in 2011 through
the conservation of our soil, water and renewable resources.
The conservation district was organized in March 1940 under the authority
created by the Soil Conservation Act passed by the Florida Legislature in
1937. It was formed for the purpose of providing an organized procedure for
assisting farmers and land users with problems related to soil and water con-
servation. The conservation district is a subdivision of state government with
a governing board of five locally elected supervisors.
Technical service is provided to the District by the United States
Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service. The
conservation district has an agreement with the USDA whereby the Natural
Resources Conservation Service provides technical information and profes-
sional personnel to assist it in carrying out and maintaining soil and water
conservation measures on properties within their county boundaries.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS
The following are some of the District's accomplishments and activities
during FY 2011:
Resource Management Systems 9,079 acres funded
Environmental Quality Incentive Program 23 contracts approved
Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program 6 contracts approved
Contracts for both programs totaling $462,372 for approved contracts
Assisted Farm Service Agency on Conservation Reserve Programs (CRP)
Contracts and with Highly Erodible Land Determinations.
Provided technical assistance to Walton County Road Department on 1 site
for road side stabilization.
Provided technical assistance to 50 landowners regarding erosion control
for land not currently under NRCS contracts.
Worked with Three Rivers RC&D and Walton Board of County
Commissioners on the restoration project at Darlington Community Center.
With assistance from Three Rivers RC&D the District placed weather sta-
tions and rain buckets in 4 locations in Walton County in order to monitor
rainfall and provide information to local agencies and landowners.
Fiscal year 2011 was the fifteenth years of the nationwide conservation
program known as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. This pro-
gram combines the functions of the Agricultural Conservation Program,
Water Quality Incentive Program and the Colorado River Basin Salinity
Program.
The Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program
for landowners who want to develop and .improve wildlife habitats on pri-
vate land. Through WHIP, USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service
provides both technical assistance and up to 50% cost-share assistance to
establish and improve wildlife habitats. WHIP agreements between NRCS
and the participant generally last from 5 to 10 years from the date the agree-
ment is signed.
In addition to the program work the conservation district has available for
sale the following resource materials: The Walton County Soil Survey CD,
USGS Topographical maps for Walton County and Walton County Plat
books.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
The conservation district would like to acknowledge the support and assis-
tance from the following agencies, groups and individuals that aided us in
implementing our programs:
The Walton Board of County Commissioners supports the conservation
district by providing a district conservation aide and office manager for the
district office.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service provides professional person-
nel to assist the land users of Walton County.
The Farm Service Agency assisted with the Conservation Reserve Program
in taking out highly erodible cropland and establishing permanent vege-
tation. They also assisted with the Environmental Quality Incentive
Program.
Florida Three Rivers RC&D for continued support on projects throughout
the conservation district.
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission by providing assistance
in habitat and species conservation.
The Walton County Extension Service Office was very valuable in main-
taining a sound Agricultural Education Program.
The Division of Forestry, provided valuable assistance with forestry pro-
grams in Walton County.
The DeFuniak Herald provided support by keeping the public aware of all
conservation news.
The Choctawhatchee River Soil and Water Conservation District is con-
tinuously striving to better serve the land users of Walton County. Assistance
through the District is available at no charge and regardless of race, color,
national origin, sex, religion, age, disability or marital status.
It is the ultimate goal of the conservation district that a complete soil and
water conservation plan become established and maintained on every farm,
ranch and watershed in Walton County.

along U.S. 90 will be to shifted from the
four-lane configuration to one lane in
each direction through part of the project.
The southern lanes will be transitioned to

COUNCIL:

in favor of hearing a. second
reading and to adopt the
amendment.
The next item brought for-
ward by Scoville was a vari-
ance request by Thriftway
Supermarket owner J.W.
Adkison, who wished to con-
struct a 7-foot-tall, 18-by-
21-foot open-sided structure
in an area currently used
for parking. Approximately
half of the pre-engineered
structure (similar to a pre-
fab carport) would encroach
into the historic district. Ad-
kison requested the instal-
lation of such a structure
to have a more permanent
location for charity cookout
events on his property that
have traditionally been held
in the open air or in tempo-


rary tents.
The Council heard the
opinions of several members
of the community at a brief
public hearing, with some
for and some against allow-
ing the variance. Rodney
Holston, the retailer who
sells the structure in ques-
tion, allayed the concerns of
some citizens, by showing
the structures he sells to be
far from temporary, as they
are certified to withstand
up to 135 mph winds when
anchored in the ground. The
Council passed the variance
request with a straight vote,
with the requirements be-
ing a 25-foot setback from
nearby buildings and that
the building should not have
enclosed sides.


Assistant City Manager
Bill Holloway got approval
from the Council to termi-
nate a sanitation mechanic
who had been a city em-
ployee for roughly one year's
time. Holloway cited two
disciplinary actions and an
unsatisfactory performance
appraisal as the reason for
the employee's termination.
Holloway also got unani-
mous approval to accept a
proposal from Black Belt
Energy Gas District for ca-
thodic protection services
and to designate a negotiat-
ing committee for the pur-
pose of working out contrac-
tual details with the firm.
City Manager Sara Bow-
ers got unanimous approval
to go ahead with several

S.R. 83 Bridge Replacement

State Road 83 at Juniper Creek
Walton County, Florida
Financial Project ID 430061-1-52-01

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public information meeting on Thursday, April 5,
2012, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. CST, regarding proposed improvements to State Road (S.R.) 83-at Juniper
Creek in Walton County. The meeting will be held at the DeFuniak Springs Community Center, 361 North
10th Street, DeFuniak Springs.

FDOT proposes to replace the existing culverts crossing S.R. 83 at Juniper Creek with a new bridge and
reconstruct the bridge approaches. The project is approximately 1,060 feet long and construction may begin
as early as 2015. During construction, traffic will be diverted to a temporary roadway and bridge, parallel to
the existing roadway. Additional right-of-way will be required for the bridge and roadway improvements.


Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color,
national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.
Persons who require special accommodations under the
Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require
translation services (free of charge) should contact Keith

measures, including renew-
ing the city's contract with
the Florida Department of
Transportation and the Wal-
ton County ARC for road-
side maintenance, as well
as the appointment of Perry
Deneau to the Economic
Development and Tourism
Committee.
The Council also voted to
set the lease of a hangar at
the DeFuniak Springs Mu-
nicipal Airport to Monarch
Aviation Maintenance, Inc.
at $625 per month for a pe-
riod of 10 years, or $1.53 per
square foot per year. Dis-
cussion among members of
the Council centered around
whether or not it was bet-
ter to keep Monarch on as
a tenant or to charge more
money for rent at the risk of
losing the firm's business.
Councilman Kermit Wright
took the latter position and
voted against the measure
to approve the new terms
of the lease, with the final
4-1 vote going in favor of the
new terms.
The City Council also vot-
ed unanimously to approve
a 12-month natural gas sup-
ply purchase proposal from


Florida Gas Utilty. An over-
supply of natural gas in the
domestic market combined
with a mild winter caused
the market for gas to expe-
rience a substantial drop in
price to their lowest levels in
more than six years, while a
warmer than normal sum-
mer could cause prices to
rise, Bowers informed the
Council. With the market at
a low point, Bowers advised
the board to consider pur-
chasing a year's supply of

Carolina Carports is the
only supplier providing
wind load data. The Council
approved the project.

Two prices have been re-
ceived for the replacement
of an X-ray machine with
monitor which was used to
locate underground util-
ity piping, but which was
lost in a wreck. The moni-


tor and the machine each
cost $5,000. The city has a
three year-old backup moni-
tor' and the supplier assured
the city it will work with the
new machine. The Council
approved purchasing the
replacement X-ray machine
and using the three year-old
backup monitor with it. In
the event the monitor does
not work, then the city will
purchase a new monitor.

SAS I L-M
.. -ASMIHEYAMAON '


Oi! This Angle finds you
all the way from Rio de Ja-
neiro, Brazil where I am
soaking up the beaches of
Ipanema, the roaring mu-
sic of Tijuca, the hills of
Guaratiba. For five days,
my best friend (who lives in
Brazil) is touring me around
one of the most famous cit-
ies in South America. While
I travel often in the States,
this is my first trip to South
America. I would not say
I am in a state of culture
shock, more like a state of
culture awe. We're not in
Kansas anymore, Todo.
A newcomer to the land
of Cariocas, here are some
of the initial observations of
a gringa in Rio. In the event
that you plan to visit Brazil
in the future, pay particular
attention to numbers two,
eight, and 14.

1. Airport toilets are more
like porta-potties. Hold it.
2. Traffic is insane! Take
the chaos of Manhattan, the
bumper-to-bumper crowds of
Atlanta, the winding curves
of Asheville, then add the
fact that no one stays in his
lane and traffic. signals are
entirely ignored, and boom,
that is how to drive in Rio
(pronounced Hee-oh). For-
tunately,, cab drivers don't
have to be tipped (assuming
'you survive the ride).
3. There are no trucks
or SUVs. Because parking
spaces and streets are so
narrow, you'll find almost
nothing larger than a two-'
door Fiat here.
4. American movie the-
aters could really take a les-


son from Rio; here, you can
bring anything: food, drink,
beer, and avoid the price-
gouged soda and popcorn,
which leads me to number
5.
5. Coke is expensive (I'm
talking soda). A can of Coke
is about $2.50 in U.S. dol-
lars, and for those who pre-
fer water, like myself, there
is no such thing as straight-
from-the-tap. Bottled water
is the only option at about
$1.50 per 6-8 ounces.
6. On the plus side, once
your thirst is sated, relax
with an inexpensive pedi-
cure, $5-10 USD.
7. Avoid the slums, called
favelas.
8. Get ready to sweat.
There is no central AC, even
in the nicest houses.
9. Walls and fences and
graffiti, oh my. In the city,
everything is gated or de-
,graded.
10. Everyone who does
.not live in a favela has a
maid. Everyone.
11. Gentlemen prefer
blondes.
12. Pale is exotic (I may
never leave).
13. Skin. Is. In.
14. Brasilians are not
concerned with the pursuit
of perfection like Americans.
In America, we obsess over
calories and stretch marks
and wrinkles and laser hair
removal. Here, it all hangs
out over an itsier bitsier tee-
ny weeny yellow polka dot
bikini and not an eyebrow is
raised. .
15. People make out ev-
erywhere. Translation:
PDA=normal.


neglect victims throughout
Okaloosa and Walton coun-


16. The banana hammock
is a superstar. A body like
David Beckham or a body
like John Goodman, the
speedo doesn't discriminate.
17. Don't buy shrimp on a
stick at the beach. (This ap-
phes to all countries, no?)
18. Street food consists of
boiled corn and coconut wa-
ter (any wonder Brasilians
are so fit?)
19. Shampoo and con-
ditioner here are amazing
(and cheap!). My tangled,
frizzy mop is as smooth as
silk.
20. Full-bodied leotards
and sagging-crotch pants are
in-style. Skip this trend.
21. The dollar is worth
almost twice as much $1
USD=$1.76 Reais
22. It is normal for children
(newborn and up) to stay out
with their parents at social
gatherings, bars, and res-
taurants until 1 or 2 in the
morning. (Considering that
I would ideally like' an invis-
ible bubble-like forcefield to
surround my son most days,
imagine my shock).
23. Late is a way of life.
No one is concerned with the
time or planning anything.
24. No bagels, no biscuits,
no iced tea, no peanut but-
ter. No Reese's (THE HOR-
ROR!)
25. Everyone is really
friendly (unless you jay-
walk, in which case you will
become very familiar with
Portuguese swear words).
Some of these nuances
I adore (#12) and other
things leave my mouth
agape (# 24). Nonetheless,
in less than 48 hours my
cultural horizons have not
been merely expanded, but
completely reconfigured in
a way that leaves me more
knowledgeable, happy, and
well-rounded--for knowing
more of the world leads me
to know more of exactly who
I am.


ties, has opened a second lo-
cation in DeFuniak Springs
to better serve child abuse
victims and their fami-
lies in Walton County. An
Open House Housewarming
is planned for March 30 at
11:30 a.m.

"When we first opened our
doors in Niceville a decade
ago, we knew we eventual-
ly wanted to have a second
location in Walton County.
We finally did it," CEO Julie
Hurst, said.
Services offered at the
centers are provided to child
abuse victims at no cost to
the families served. While
the center has always pro-
vided services to both coun-
ties, it wasn't until last year
that families could start to
receive some services right
in Walton. Previously all
families needed to drive to
Niceville.
"By having, a physical
presence in Walton County
the agency team members
are better able to work to-
gether to provide, services
and more education is being
provided .in the community
on what the signs of abuse
are and how to report your.
suspicions," Hurst con-
tinued, "We suspected we
would see an increase in the
number of victims and we
have. We've seen a 40-per-
cent increase in the services
we're providing to Walton
County kids. We're say-
ing and healing more child
abuse victims than ever be-
fore."
The Open House House-
warming will include a
ribbon cutting ceremony,
refreshments and tours of
the new facility. The open
house will run from 11:30
a.m. 6 p.m. with the ribbon
cutting at noon. The Walton
County Center is located at
256 U.S. 90 near the inter-
section of U.S. 331 and U.S.
90.
"We're looking forward to
sharing our new space with'
everyone.in the community.


We have had so many gen-
erous volunteers and sup-
porters that have worked
together to make this day
possible. We want them all
to come out and celebrate
with us." Hurst said.
The Emerald Coast Chil-
dren's Advocacy Center
(ECCAC) provides services
to help identify, treat and
support children in abusive
situations. The organiza-
tion helps prevent child
abuse through education,
protects child victims from
future abuse, and provides
resources to restore the
lives of the child and the
child's family. The center


is a non-profit organization
with locations in Niceville
and DeFuniak Springs. It
serves Okaloosa and Walton
counties and houses repre-
sentatives from the Florida
Department of Children and
Families, Child Protection
Team, State Attorney's Of-
fice, local law enforcement
and licensed mental health
counselors.

Investigator Wendy Am-
mons is no stranger to wear-
ing many different hats in
life. As the new Public In-

law en-
fo r ce -
ment .
Ammons is a self-professed
"Daddy's girl." Her father,
Robert Baxter, was the po-
lice chief in Chipley, Fla.,
for many year's. The eight-
year veteran of the WCSO
found her calling in life at a
young age. "It was not odd
for me as a little girl to go
with my dad to the jail, or
city hall or sit in his office
with him," she recalled. She
received her associate's de-
gree from Chipola College
before moving on to Florida
State University (FSU) for a
degree in criminology.
A life in law enforcement
was not exactly what her
daddy had in mind for her.
"We always sat around the
dinner table and watched
the 5:30 news. News was
very important in our fam-
ily. I told my dad, 'I think
I'm going to go into crimi-
nology.' This didn't sit too
well with Ammons' father
at first, and after express-
ing concerns for her safety
pointed to the TV and said,
"You could be like them," he
told her, motioning at the
reporters on the afternoon
air waves. Ammons decided
to "go for it" anyway, but
also took journalism classes
while earning her degree for
law enforcement. "I thought,
at least as an officer, I have
ways to defend myself. I
have back-up," she said with
a laugh.
Ammons started out as
a deputy in south Walton,
and moved onto the position
of Field Training Officer
(FTO), then as the first fe-
male in the Traffic Enforce-
ment Unit, onto the crimi-
nal investigations unit with

a special focus on "crimes
against children" and then

up the
work in
2009 af-
ter posi-
tive feedback from players
in the literary arena. In
2011, she released The Les-
son, part two of The Honey-
suckle Chronicles. Both can
be found on Amazon.com by
searching for W. Charlene
Ammons.
Ammons is embracing
her new role as PIO and
terms like "professionalism"
and "mentoring" pepper her
conversation when speak-
ing about the future. "In-
ternships and mentoring is
something the sheriff would
really like to see us get
started, and something that
I am very excited about,"
she said. "The new Men-
tors Offering Real-World
Education(MORE) program
that was just started by
FSU focuses on women look-
ing at careers in criminol-
ogy. Along with participat-
ing in MORE, we're hoping
as well to participate in an
internship program to allow
students to get an idea of all
the different areas in law
enforcement that are open
to them, that they will get
some real world experience
and ideas as far as what
their potential jobs could en-
tail and we're excited to be
working with colleges like
Northwest Florida State
College (NWFSC) and FSU
to do that."
Another program that
Ammons is busy getting the
word out on is the new tip
line started by the WCSO.
"Lt. Bruce Maddox is in
charge of our new tip lines.
It's anonymous. You don't
have to give your name.
But we do need callers to
be as specific as possible.


The more specific, the better
chance we have of building
a solid case. It's not just for
narcotics. It can be for any-
thing a citizen might think
is important for our office to
know. But, the more details
callers can leave, the better
chance for our investigators
to be able to get the case to
a prosecution." Citizens can

call (850) 951-4931 or exten-
sion 11109 after dialing the

892-8186.
Even though Ammons
is a busy officer, wearing
many different hats, she is
enjoying life in the country
in Ponce De Leon with her
husband, Bryan, and their
"furkid." Shortly after ac-
cepting the role as PIO,
Ammons had a bittersweet
moment. Her hero, her dad,
passed away around a month


ago, and she, after appear-
ing on-camera as the new
PIO thought back to that
afternoon, sitting around
the dinner table with her fa-
ther, while he worried about
his little girl wanting to be a.
police officer.
"I thought, if he would
just have been able to stick
around for just a little while
longer, he could have seen
me on TV. I really have the
best of both worlds with this
new opportunity. I get to


be in law enforcement and
a journalist." This reporter
has the feeling that Robert
Baxter got to see that mo-
ment and will get to see
many more as his daughter
becomes the information
conduit between the WCSO
and the residents of Walton
County and northwest Flor-
ida.

reach offered by the WCSO,

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
My husband and I have
two. small children. We
separated a few months ago
and worked out a custody
arrangement at that time
between the two of us. But
now, my ex has started do-
ing as he pleases with the
kids and we have been fight-
ing a lot in front of them. My
oldest child has been acting
out and getting in trouble at
school the last few weeks.
I really don't know how to
handle this. My ex can be
somewhat of a bully towards
me and the kids. What can I,
do to make this better?
Single mom
Dear Single,
The short answer is put
the money together to get
a lawyer and get a legally
documented agreement be-
tween you and your hus-
band, or take him to court
and let the judge decree the
custody agreement between
the two of you. It's like I've
heard all my life about oral
agreements, they're as good
as the paper they're written
on. Get my drift?
In a perfect world, every-
one acts like an adult all
the time. In the real world,
people have issues and act
up when their feelings get
involved and they act out at
the people they believe to be
responsible for their unhap-
piness.
Also, do whatever you
can, whether it be holding
your tongue or having an-i
other adult present and stop
arguing in front of the kids.
They didn't askfor this and
you have a responsibility to
be an adult for them, even
if your ex can't handle it. A
visit to the therapist for the
kids wouldn't be out of line
either. They are having feel-
ings that they don't under-
stand and need to express
them in a safe environment
so they can work through
them.
I know it's not easy being
the adult and it's not fair
when you are the only one
toeing the line, but your kids
deserve better and if you are
the only one that can pro-
vide them that, then it will
fall to you. Why? Because
you can't control what your
ex does, but you can control
yourself and in the long run,
your kids will see that and
love you all the more for be-
ing the sane, stable parent
they could depend on. Hang

on, be the adult and give
your kids a gift they will
carry with them the rest of
their live; the gift of stabil-
ity and a role model. Good
luck and God bless.

Life and Love in



the Mailroom


By Ronnie McBrayer


While reflecting on the
coming Holy Week, I re-
membered one of my favorite
stories. It is a mythical tale
written by author, profes-
sor, Harley-Davidson rider,
and pastor, Robert R. Kopp.
As Pastor Robert tells it, a
young man named Walter
went to work for the larg-
est corporation in the world.
The personnel director told
Walter he must start at the
bottom and work his way
up, for that is the way one
succeeds.
So Walter, not afraid of
a little hard work, began
his corporate career in the
mailroom, in the basement
of the building. Walter
liked his job, but he often
daydreamed about what it
would be like to be a person
of power, an executive, or
maybe even the president of
the company.
One day as Walter was
dividing and sorting the
mail, he saw a cockroach in
the corner of the room. Dis-
gusted, he walked over to
step on it, but a tiny voice
cried up to him, "Don't kill
me Walter! I'm Milton the
cockroach, and if you spare
me I will grant you all your
wishes."
Well, what was Walter
to do? It's not every day you
come across a talking cock-


roach, so to test the abil-
ity of his new found friend,
Walter wished to leave the
mailroom and become vice
president of the company.
"Do that for me," Walter
said, "I will let you live."
When Walter came to
work the next day he found
himself greeted as "Mr.
Vice-President." He had a
security clearance, a secre-
tary, a support staff, and a
corner office in one the high-
est floors of the building. It
was exactly as Milton had
promised.
This began a meteoric rise
for Walter as Milton grant-
ed one wish after another
until Walter was President
and CEO of the largest cor-
poration in the world. Wal-
ter often said to himself, "I
am Walter, and I am on top
of the world. No one is big-
ger or more important than
me."
Then one day Walter
heard footsteps, strange-
ly, on the roof of his pent-
house office. He went out-
side and found a small boy
on his knees praying. "Are
you praying to me," Wal-
ter asked. The little boy
answered, "Of course not!
I don't even know who you
are. I am praying to God."
Walter was deeply disturbed
by this. He had thought he


was at the very top of every-
thing. How could someone -
even God be higher than
him?
So after a fitful, sleep-
less night, Walter demand-
ed that Milton the magi-
cal, talking cockroach be
brought before him once
again. Milton quickly ap-
peared, as always. "I have
one last wish Milton," Wal-
ter said, "and upon granting
this wish I set you free for
there will be nothing left to
ask. I wish to be like God."
Milton said, "As you wish."
The next day when Walter
came to work he was back in
the mailroom.
The New Testament
teaches us that Jesus slid
down from the infinity of
heaven, to the lowest rung
of the social ladder; the
mailroom of the universe.
He became a near untouch-
able; poverty-stricken, al-
ways just a step ahead of
starvation; born in a barn
with a bastard's reputation;
hated, condemned unjustly,
and crucified as a criminal.
He didn't remain in a far-
away heaven, worshipped by
angels, insulated from pain
and trouble. He didn't re-
main in a place of holy bliss,
not knowing how it hurt to
be a human being. At least,
he could have come to earth

But no; Jesus emptied
himself of all things .and
"made himself of no reputa-
tion," the old English trans-
lations of the Bible say, to
show the length to which
God's love will go, and to
show us how to love others.
He considered becoming hu-
man, loving and serving hu-
manity, to be more impor-
tant than his comfort and
prestige. He chose the mail-
room over the penthouse,
and to be like God, so must
we.

The Ponce de Leon Lady
Pirates picked up a 6-2 vic-
tory at home over Wewa-
hitchka on Thursday in a
District 3, Class A contest.
The Pirates picked up
their third victory in a row
and enter spring break week
with an 8-2 mark in the dis-
trict with only two district
games remaining before the
district tournament in Cot-
tondale the week of April
16.
Marissa Powell picked up
the victory on the mound
as she pitched all seven in-
nings while allowing only
two runs.
PDL built a 5-0 lead af-
ter three innings of play as
Delilah Bass and Ashley


Harper singled and even-
tually scored with the help
of a fielder's choice and a
throwing error followed by a
sacrifice by Powell. Brittany
Alford drove in the final run
of the inning for a lead the
Pirates would never relin-
quish.

Wewa's Victoria Lanter
scored the first run for the
Gators in the sixth inning
as she singled and advanced
to third base when the ball
scooted past a Pirates out-
fielder. Tara Walding drove
her in with a base hit to cut
the lead to 6-1.
The Gators scored an-
other run in the top of the
seventh inning when senior
Sarah Luckie doubled in a

By PATRICK CASEY
The Freeport Bulldogs girls track and field team won a
meet with Chipley, Vernon and Graceville behind Gloria
Miller in the shot put and Lisa Bramlet in the discus. Cheri
McLean also contributed to the win with victories in the
110 hurdles and the mile relay while teammate Michelle
Boughton took the 330 hurdles.
The Bulldogs, who won their fifth meet of the year and
held a 42-0 regular season record over a two-year period
under coach Aubrey Rentz, would go on to a second place
finish later in the spring in the Class A meet, trailing only
Winter Park Trinity Prep for the state championship.
Miller would go on to win the shot put state champion-
ship with a toss of 38-feet, six inches in the 8-pound shot
put, an event that was later discontinued by the state at
that weight in 1988.

High School's culinary


class finds healthy eating pays off


Natalie Keith, RN,BA,
BSN, Certificate in Health,
the Senior Community
Health Nurse, from the
Walton County Health De-
partment, presented ways
how to eat healthy and
stay' active weekly to FHS
culinary class. According
to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
(CDC), "Childhood obesity
has more than tripled in
the past 30 years. Addition-
ally, two -thirds of adults
are overweight and one-
third of adults are obese
(CDC, 2011). A few of the
long-term health effects in-
clude the following: heart
disease, type 2 diabetes,
several types of cancer, psy-
chological problems, and


osteoarthritis. To address
these problems the Walton
County Health Department
is piloting an "Eat Right
& Let's Move" program at
Freeport High School.

At the beginning of the
program, Kristin Alford,
Beth Stutz, and Lourdes
Garcia, from the Walton
County Health Department,
assessed Body Mass Indexes
and blood pressures. In May
these areas will be assessed
to evaluate how effective the
classes were at motivating
students to eat at least two
fruits' and three vegetables
per day as well as increase
their daily exercise.
Keith has shared relevant
information with the class on


their diet as well as how im-
portant daily exercise makes
them obtain and maintain
a healthy body. She has
made healthy shakes from
frozen grapes and pineap-
ple, and demonstrated the
importance of vegetables
by cooking chicken pot pie
for the class. Ashlyn Davis
remarked, "Oh, I love this
chicken pot pie."

Recently Ewa Bearden,
Environmental Health
Scientist with the Walton
County Health Depart-
ment demonstrated "Gar-
dening in a Bucket." Stu-
dents learned how to start
a garden in planter pots,
half-gallon milk cartons,
and buckets, anything food


friendly. Always consider
the different types of plants
(thrillers, filler, and spiller)
when planting. This meth-
od provides optimum bal-
ance to grow a garden in a
small container. Bearden
promised to return to show
the students how to make
homemade salsa,'all ingre-
dients grown in a bucket.
Carlos Legaspi, a freshman,
declared his mother made
the best salsa!

Each week the students
look forward to Keith's visit
and another delicious, yet
healthy, way to "Eat Right
& Let's Move." This program
already shows positive influ-
ences on the students eating
habits and daily exercising.


NATALIE KEITH, Senior Community Health Nurse, ex-
plains the importance of eating healthy how it affects the
arteries.

behind the three-point line
and 25-of-77 overall from
the 'field, as South Plains
defeated the Raiders 81-68

son scored 32 points to lead
the Texas squad to a 36-0

in their first NJCAA title
game since winning it all in
the 1994-95: season, ended
the year at 31-2. Former

points; one rebound and one
blocked shot in more than
12 minutes of action in his
final game as a sophomore
with the squad.

5 Sports Facts

1. Pittsburgh wide receiver, Hines Ward announced his
retirement from the NFL last week. Ward is the eighth
player in NFL history to reach 1,000 career receptions and
joined Hall of Famer Jerry Rice as the only two players in
league history to post 1,000 career catches and win mul-
tiple Super Bowls. Ward became the third player in NFL
history to reach 12,000 receiving yards while playing for
one team during their entire career (Marvin Harrison, Ind.
and Steve Largent, Sea.).

2. For the fifth time in six years, college football set a
record for the number of people attending games at the 638
NCAA football schools with 49,699,419 fans turning out to
watch a contest this past season. The total figure represents
an increase of 28,524 fans over the previous record set last
year and an increase of more than 32 percent, or more than
12.2 million fans, since 1998.

3. On Jan. 12, 1992, Troy became the first team to score
200 points in an NCAA basketball game, defeating DeVry,
258-141. Troy hit 51 three-pointers during the game, still a
NCAA record, and only one other team at all NCAA levels
has scored 200 points since.,

Barbecue spelled B-A-R-T-O-N


By BRUCE COLLIER
Barbecue isn't just deli-
cious, it can be a serious
and sometimes competitive
business. For the Barton
family of DeFuniak Springs,
victory has been sweet and
smoky, as they took Grand
Champion honors at the


March 24 Triple B barbecue
competition in Crestview.
Their team, called Pov-
erty Hill Smokers, is com-
posed of Kenneth Barton,
his wife Loreyann, their
daughter Haley Bass, and
teammate Jesse Covington.
Using a smoker built by


Kenneth, Poverty Hill took
second place in sauce, third
place both in ribs and pulled
pork, first place in brisket,
and Grand Championship
of the whole event. This was
Poverty Hill's second Grand
Championship in a row at
Triple B. They plan to com-
pete in April at a competi-


HALEYAND KENNETH with Grand Champion trophy.

The Bartons are relative
newcomers to the barbecue
game, having started out
only three years ago at the
local May Day Festival's


barbecue cook-off, where
they earned top honors in
chicken and second place
in ribs. "We've been hooked
ever since," says Loreyann,
who will be involved in plan-


ning for the event at this
year's May Day BBQ Festi-
val.
"Our name is getting out,"
says Loreyann, adding, "We

Sales tax referendum vote


scheduled for May 8


At the March 27 regu-
lar meeting of the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC), the
commissioners voted to
set a May 8 date on which
Walton County voters can
decide whether or not to ac-
cept a 0.5-percent surtax on


sales of goods within Walton
County, to help fund con-
struction and improvements
of the U.S. 331 bridge. The
BCC's ordinance stated that
"[t]he official ballot shall be
in substantially the follow-
ing form:


"Title: Levy of Charter
County and Regional Trans-
portation System Surtax.
"Summary: Shall Wal-
ton County levy a surtax on
sales of goods within Wal-
ton County at a rate of 0.5%
to pay debt service and to
fund costs associated with


improvements to the U.S.
Highway 331 bridge over the
Choctawhatchee Bay, which
levy shall be deposited into
a restricted-use trust fund,
beginning January 1, 2013
and expiring December 31
of the year debt issued for
the bridge improvements is


repaid?"

The BCC voted 4-0 to set
the date for the vote, which
had originally been set for
April 24. Commission Chair-
man Scott Brannon was not
present, being out of town at
a meeting.


World War II veteran FrU


addresses WRWF


By DOTTY NIST
Samuel Lombardo, distin-
guished World War II vet-
eran, was featured speaker
at the Walton Republican
Women's March 21 monthly
meeting at Carrabba's Ital-
ian Grill in Miramar Beach.
Lombardo, who came to
America from Italy at the
age of 10, later served on the
front lines in Europe during
the war. First Lieutenant
Lombardo led the Second
Platoon of Company I, 394th
Infantry Regiment, 99th Di-
vision, during the Battle of
the Bulge in the Ardennes
region of Belgium.
Lombardo told the group
that his family had left a
self-sufficient farming ex-
istence in Italy to come to
the United States. Why?
Because, he explained, his
father had lived in America
for a time and knew of the
freedoms here.
In 1927, after getting
married in Italy and having
three children, Lombardo's
father returned to the U.S.,
working 16 hours a day un-
til he had earned the money
to bring young Samuel, his
mother and two sisters to


join him in America.
Mussolini was gaining
strength in Italy at the time
Samuel and his family left
the country.
Lombardo said his father
had impressed on his fam-
ily that "this is our country
now." They were told to obey
all laws, learn English, and
be loyal to their new coun-
try.
The family settled in Al-
toona, Pa. When the De-
pression hit, they fared well
due to their farming skills.
They had a large garden
and always had enough to
eat, Lombardo recalled.
His service in World War
II began in Scotland, after
which he was sent to Eng-
land. Later he was assigned
to the front lines of the 99th
Division in Belgium.
"If we had had clear
weather, the Battle of the
Bulge would never have
occurred," Lombardo com-
mented. He explained that
the Germans' surprise of-
fensive would not have been
possible without overcast
weather, which grounded
the Allies' air forces.
"We were at the north-


ern corner of the bulge, and
we held it," Lombardo ex-
plained. This was despite 15
inches of snow and no food
for two days. Lombardo said
he and his men were sub-
jected to a bombardment
lasting a full half hour. "I
thought it was the end of
the world," he described.
After receiving orders
to go to Liege for supplies,
Lombardo said he travelled
30 miles without seeing one
American flag. "I got lone-
some for the flag," he said.
Troops on the front lines
were not supplied flags for
fear that the flags would be
captured, he explained.
Lombardo later learned
that troops on the front
lines were not prohibited
from having flags even
though flags were not is-
sued to them. Afterileaving
Belgium and heading for
Cologne, Germany, he and
his men began working on a
flag. They used a white Ger-
man surrender flag, sewing
colored pieces of cloth onto
it to make the stars and
stripes. The soldiers some-
times worked on the flag un-
til midnight.


SAMUEL LOMBARDO


When Company I crossed
the Remagen Bridge, one
side of the flag had been
completed. The makeshift
flag became the first in the
99th Division east of the
Rhine River. Lombardo and
his men continued working
on the flag during breaks
from duty, usually by can-
dle light. It was completed
on the Danube River 2 1/2
months later.


Today the flag is on dis-
play at the National Infan-
try Museum in Fort Ben-
ning, Ga.
Lombardo is now a resi-
dent of the Emerald Coast.
His experiences are de-
scribed in his book, O'er the
Land of the Free.

The WRWF's next meet-
ing is scheduled for 11 a.m.
on April 18 at Carrabba's.


Freeport High School makes a difference in "Change for Children"


CHANGE FOR CHILDREN: Pictured here are Nancy Schissler, Tristen Green, Daniel
Kutz, Jonathan Via, and Kevin Blackmon during the week-long "Change for Children"
campaign.


Nancy Schissler, presi-
dent of Walton County Re-
tired Educators Association,
received donations collected
from Freeport High School
students and faculty. Their
efforts raised more than
$600 for The Children's
Neighborhood in Fort Wal-
ton Beach. Students proudly
represented their school as
they gave money raised
Children in Crisis is a
non-profit charity of caring
people working together to
provide homes and establish
hope to abused, neglected,
and abandoned children in
our community. Forty-five
percent of foster children
were separated from their
siblings due to foster home
shortages. This organiza-
tion tries to minimize sib-
ling separation, and it is
their priority to keep broth-
ers and sisters together.
The Children's Neighbor-


hood, a beautiful facility
built by the generous sup-
port of its community, has
an emergency shelter for
children who are removed
without notice from an
unsafe environment, and
group family foster home for
young children. The Chil-
dren's Neighborhood helps
with the severe shortage of
foster homes in our commu-
nity. There are 1,400 foster
children per year in Circuit
One that need a home, but
there are only 304 Commu-
nity Foster Homes with a to-
tal of 616 beds. This organi-
zation can certainly put the
monetary donations from
the Freeport High School
faculty and student body to
good use.

Those who have ques-
tions or need more informa-
tion should call Children in
Crisis at (850) 864-4242.

(IAPRE), is bringing five
top International Real Es-
tate Experts to the Emerald
Coast to share their exper-
tise with those in the local
real estate industry. Their
in-depth presentations can
provide the tools and knowl-
edge to fully service foreign
real estate investors and en-
sure a poignant understand-
ing of current laws neces-
sary for international real
estate transactions.

Power Summit is a FREE
event on March 29 at the
Sandestin Hilton. In antici-
pation of the announcement

How Does Your Garden


Grow? The future of


farming with Aquaponics


The Walton County Mas-
ter Gardeners will present
the sixth in a series of lec-
tures for local gardeners. It
will be on Wednesday,
April 4 from 10 to 11:30
a.m. The location is the
Coastal Branch Extension
Office at 70 Logan Lane in
Grayton Beach, off CR 283
- just north of the four-way
stop.
Master Gardener Sindi


Hogenson will present a fas-
cinating program on grow-
ing plants in a water medi-
um called Aquaponics. This
is different than hydropon-
ics in that it employs a com-
plete ecosystem. It may be
used by the homeowner or
commercial grower to raise
vegetables economically and
eco-friendly in an area with
poor soil like ours.
Light refreshments will


be served. Soil testing sup-
plies and instruction will
be available and Master
Gardeners will be on hand
to take gardening ques-
tions. This program is free
and open to the public. How-
ever, seating is limited to 30
participants. Call Cheryl at
(850) 892-8172 to reserve a
place.

SWMD reports mosquitoes active


By BEN GRAFTON

According to South
Walton Mosquito District
(SWMD) Director Ben Brew-
er, at the Board's meeting of
March 20, about 87 percent
of revenues from local and
state sources have been re-
ceived and expenditures are
near budget. So far, over-
time burdens have not been
too great.
Commissioner Robert
Hudson noted that there
are reports from across the
state of early mosquito ac-
tivity. Locally the mosqui-
toes are Asian Tigers and
some of them are coming
from idle swimming pools
where the chlorine has bro-
ken down leaving a breeding
site. Chairman John Magee
added that in wet weather
even leaves on the ground
become breeding sites.
Brewer reported that the
district office is getting six
calls each day about mos-
quito activity. Calls are
coming from sites adjacent
to wooded areas and ditches
in addition to the swimming
pools, and the district has
done four spray runs in the
last month. He commented
that traps with chicken have
not been put out yet, that
mosquito-eating fish can be
harvested locally and used
in appropriate sites, and
that chemicals purchased
last year are losing their
potency so new supplies are
being purchased.
The board asked Brewer
to put out a press release
that asks residents to take


steps to eliminate breeding
areas on their properties.
Residents should check for
water standing in a variety
of open containers.
Representatives of two
different disability insur-
ance providers made presen-
tations to the board about
plans that are available to
cover the district's employ-
ees. A non-taxable long term
benefit of 60 percent of an
employee's pay up to $1,000
per week is available. There
is an "elimination period"
of about three months fol-
lowing the disability dur-
ing which no benefit is paid.
Employees can be advised
that they can obtain their
own short term disabil-
ity insurance, benefits from
which are taxable, to cover
this period.
According to Office Man-
ager Geraldine Via no com-
parisons have been made
between the presentations
and what is currently avail-
able, but at the board's re-
quest, appropriate compari-
sons will be provided.
Brewer will prepare a
protocol, for board approv-
al, for inspecting mosquito
breeding sites and schedul-
ing treatments. A hand-held
GPS locator will be used to
positively locate the sites
and the location informa-
tion will be entered into a
binder.
Brewer noted that parks
and schools are being treat-
ed and asked whether or not
this policy extends to barrier
spraying for private events
such as fishing tournaments


and wine tasting events.
Commissioner James Craw-
ford replied that organizers
of these events should go to
commercial control services
to have spraying done.
Crawford indicated that
he understood the justifica-
tion for accepting old tires
at the district's yard for dis-
posal. If not turned in, these
tires would have to be treat-
ed in the field at added cost.
He does not understand why
old television sets are al-
lowed to be turned in there,
particularly since people
just leave the sets on the
ground for district employ-
ees to deal with.
Brewer reported that
there are several "outreach
opportunities" (car shows,
Earth Day, etc.) at which
pictures, pamphlets and col-
oring books for children will
be provided to promote the
science of what the district
does.
Hudson thinks that the
district should have a vehicle
that looks good and displays
a design that clearly identi-
fies the SWMD. That design
should be on the district's
trucks and, by April 21 a ve-
hicle with the design should
be ready for the Earth Day
event.
Brewer will follow up on
the design issue.

Hudson also noted that
the district would soon be
doing budget planning for
the next fiscal year and that
the budget should provide
for a new pickup truck and
a van.

March 30 is Doctors' Day -



so make some noise!



Doctors can make us feel better. They can make us better

people by encouraging us to lose a few pounds or quit

smoking. Doctors can even make our community a better

place to live. In short, doctors make a difference. On March 30,

Doctors' Day, make some noise and tell the physicians you

know what a difference they've made in your life and the lives

of your loved ones. We will, too.
