C. W. Roberts


By BEN GRAFTON
At the Freeport City Coun-
cil meeting of April 26, City
Planner Latilda Henninger
presented a report on the
progress of the Waterfronts
Florida workshops, the most
recent of which was held on
April 18. The workshops
have been well attended
and a number of good sug-
gestions for improvements
put forth. With the help of
Cliff Knauer of Preble-Rish,
work is underway to develop
a strategic plan and vision
statement. The next work-
shop is scheduled for May
2, following which a draft of
the plan and vision will be
presented to the Council.
Henninger reported work is
being done on a large scale
amendment which is in two
parts. C.W. Roberts, the
largest employer in Freeport
has submitted an applica-
t'6-in to expah&their-opera-
tions here. The amendment
will be coming to the Coun-
cil in May and June.
Henninger commented
that work is also underway
on the military sustainabil-
ity element that the city is
required to adopt by Flori-
da's law. Anyone who is af-
fected or within the testing
patterns at Eglin Air Force
Base must recognize certain
flight and. testing zones.
Freeport has to adopt regu-
lations that affect sound
and light emissions so that
there is no interference with
the base's mission. This will
be done in a way that will
not interfere with what the
city wants to do in the fu-
ture. The Planning Board
will review this issue next
month and it will come to
the Council after that.
The subject of the city's
swimming pool was opened
by Fire Chief Ben Greenslait.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
reported that the county
has budgeted $50,000 for
swimming pool operations.
Greenslait asked for and
received approval from the
Council to advertise for ad-
ditional qualified life guards


to work at the pool. A three-
day training program will be
required for new people. The
pool will be open on week-
ends until Memorial Day
after which it will be open
six days per week. A second
shower for people to use be-
fore they enter the pool will
be installed and there will
be some simple remodeling
to make the pool look even
better than it does now.
Engineer Charlie Cotton
of Preble-Rish reported that
the North Bay water main
from Portland, to Choctaw
Beach is complete and test-
ed. The project will be closed
in May.
Cotton also reported that
the energy grant project is
complete, but that a rain
shield is needed for the in-
verter. He anticipates the
shield should be in before
the next meeting.
Cotton commented .that
the design work on the Wag-
on Wheel Road well project
is continuing and that bids
.will be requested next week
for the new ball fields at the
Sports Complex.
Mayor Mickey Marse
advised the Council that a
shed is needed for No. 4 Well
which serves as a backup for
the system; that an altitude
valve for the Portland water
tank must be installed and
that. valve problems on No.
7 Well must be corrected.
Councilman Earl King ob-
served that because of se-
curity and safety issues,
the building should be con-
structed of concrete block.
City Clerk Robin Haynes
reported that Sprint-Nextel
is changing the towers for
Freeport's cell phones. When
the conversion is complete,
the city will have to replace
the phones currently in use
in order to get service from
the new towers. Because
of this, Haynes has started
requesting proposals from
other cell phone companies
among which Southern Link
and Verizon are the largest.
There would not be equip-
ment charges from either of
these companies.

Two Colorado men plead guilty to fraud


concerning Riverwalk development in Freeport


Pamela C. Marsh, Unit-.
ed States Attorney for the
Northern District of Flor-
ida, announced last week
that Steven F. Reagan, 51,
of Arvada, Colo., and Jay S.
Fulton, 47, of Aurora, Colo.,
have both pled guilty to a
federal grand jury indict-
ment charging each with
two counts of mail fraud,
conspiracy to commit mail
and bank fraud, and con-
spiracy to commit money
laundering. This case was
investigated by the state of
Florida Office of Financial
Regulation-Bureau of Fi-
nancial Investigations, IRS-
Criminal Investigation and


the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement.
In December, 2011, a
federal grand jury in Pen-
sacola returned a six-count
indictment against Reagan
and Fulton charging the
men with falsely obtaining
mortgage loans in excess
of $3 million dollars for the
purchase, of homes in Santa
Rosa Beach. After closing
on the loans, and following
a series of financial trans-
actions, approximately
$450,000 was transferred
into bank accounts held by
entities associated with the
Riverwalk development in
Freeport, Fla. Thereafter,


Reagan and Fulton solicited
other borrowers to purchase
lots located in the Riverwalk
development as an invest-
ment opportunity. The so-
licited borrowers obtained,
through false statements,
$2 million dollars in mort-
gage loans to purchase the
Riverwalk lots. Thereafter,
as a part of the conspiracy,
Reagan and Fulton received
kickbacks from an entity as-
sociated with the Riverwalk
development.
Reagan pled guilty on
April 11 and is scheduled to
be sentenced on June 26th.
Fulton pled guilty last week
and is scheduled to be sen-


tenced on July 10. Both
men face a maximum of 30
years in prison for the con-
spiracy to commit bank and
mail fraud, up to 20 years in
prison on each of the mail
fraud counts, and a maxi-
mum of 20 years in prison
for conspiracy to commit
money laundering. They
will be sentenced by Senior
U.S. District Judge Lacey A.
Collier.
This prosecution is a
continuation of this office's
commitment to combat
mortgage fraud. Approxi-
mately a year ago, a num-
ber of prosecutions were


announced as part of Op-
eration Stolen Dreams, a
sweep that targeted mort-
gage fraud throughout the
country and was the largest
collective enforcement effort
ever brought to bear in con-
fronting the problem. The
operation was organized by
the Mortgage Fraud Work-
ing Group of President's Fi-
nancial Fraud Enforcement
Task Force, which was es-
tablished to lead an aggres-
sive, coordinated effort to
investigate and prosecute
financial crimes. This case
was prosecuted by Assistant
United States Attorney Tif-
fany H. Eggers.

WALTON COUNTY TEEN COURT JUDGE Andrew Barrineau donned his robe after
another series of cases on Wednesday, April 25. Barrineau, along with Teen Court attorneys
Jordan Cook, Jeremiah Jackson and David Hodges, and the day's sitting judge, Logan
1 cM.11llan (left of Barrineau), all students at Paxton High School, tried and presided over
the cases of several first-time teenage offenders. The Teen Court program offers offenders
the chance to participate in a court of their peers instead of going through juvenile court.
Sanctions are imposed by a jury comprised of similar-aged students. Participating juvenile
offenders will not have a criminal record, though if the defendant fails any part of Teen
Court, their case is automatically returned to juvenile court. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

pocketbook, wallet or temper on the proposed sales tax ref-
erendum to finance the U.S. 331 bridge. According to the
Supervisor of Elections website, Walton County has 38,351
active registered voters. Early opinion polls notwithstand-
ing, the issue is far from being a foregone conclusion.
If I may draw your eyes to the right and down on this
page, you will see that your fellow Waltonians are weigh-
ing in on the issue. I would also draw'your attention to the
work of cartoonist Mark Douglass, whose 'toons you have
recently seen in this paper. Artist, musician and business-
man, Mark has an eye for what burrs are getting under the
local skin. Let us know what you think of his work.
Still on deck for the weeks to come: The TDC New In-
teractive Center, or, If We Build It, Will They Notice?, the
Continuing Adventures of Harris v. Walton County, et al.,
the fall elections, and the newest addition to Gulf seafood
cookery, foot-long shrimp.
P.S. If you don't vote next week, don't write to this news-
paper about the bridge. We'll know.



Editor:

The chairman of the Walton County Republican Execu-
tive Committee is strongly in favor of the one-half percent
tax increase. His position may very well reflect that of oth-
er countywide committee leaders. He has led the effort to
establish a committee, "Citizens Against Tolls" to solicit
funds for the pro tax signs we have seen and phone calls we
have received. We can expect pro-tax junk mail delivered to
our homes by this organization. The BCC has made it clear
that they favor the tax. However, they will absolutely not
make a decision before Nov. 6. After all, appearing pro-tax
in an election year is the kiss of death. No, the board will
prefer that approval for the tax appear as a result of the
May 8 Referendum. Approval could very well be, made pos-
sible by both those individuals favoring the tax and those
who oppose it but will not bother to participate in the vot-
ing process. (See the Supervisor of Elections website, www.
votewalton.com for the details about where and when vot-
ing. is available.)
So fellow residents, consider this: Are we willing to al-
low someone else spend our hard earned money? Are we
content to let a pro-tax group, with cash to spare, influence
a vote that will remove money from our pockets, in the form
of a tax increase? Do we not pay enough in taxes, at this'
time, to our federal and county governments? Do we receive
a fair return, on our tax money, from either of these two
governments? Do we realize that an approved county sales
tax increase will begin in January of 2013, but the prod-
uct we may be taxed for, will not be usable another four to
five years (if it is completed on time and within the budget
allowance)? When has ever happened in our lifetimes? Do
you realize that the information provided by the BCC and
pro tax advocates never mentions the interest rate pay-
able on this mere $ 75 MILLION? The advocates for the
tax will quickly quote statistics claiming that we are not
to worry about the outcome of a tax increase. After all, the
average family will only pay $216.77 annually, as reported
by the UWF Hass Center.* Are you the average family?
(Somebody has to pay above the average family's statistical
share.) Who, out there, can afford to lose more money than
this so-called average family? True, there are county resi-
dents for whom this average tax cost will represent pocket
change. I seriously [doubt] that's most of us! Do you really
think that there is no alternative to the tax increase other
than a toll? This is what the Citizens Against Tolls Politi-
cal Action Committee is telling you. That PAC is receiv-
ing contributions to publicize pro-tax information that is
twisting the truth. There are other options besides a tax or
a toll. Why haven't those folks, who can afford to support
a tax, explored those avenues? Why have they not encour-
aged our BCC and the so-called Blue Ribbon Committee to
research alternatives? Why have we as taxpayers not been
provided with detailed studies regarding the facts regard-
ing toll options? The answer to that one is that they don't
yet exist. The FDOT and Turnpike Authority representa-
tives that spoke to county commissioners, and audiences,
stated that the facts and figures explaining toll options will
not be available by May 8. Why are we forced to decide this
tax/toll issue without the proper information? Ask your
commissioners and the pro-tax people to justify that one!
Perhaps most importantly, why are some of our fellow
county residents so determined to impose a tax on all of
us, which has been touted as a benefit for south Walton
development and evacuating tourists? Those two are the
recurring themes of most correspondence from those favor-
ing this tax. My conclusion is that, for someone, there must
be monetary or political gain. What do you think?
*Using a play on words, the PAC, in their ad in the Wal-
ton Sun, reports that "the average citizen would pay an ad-
ditional $2 a week if the sales tax passes". Jack or Jane
Average will therefore pay only $104 annually. Does that
make you feel better about this thievery?
Are you the average Jane or Jack?
VOTE NO TAX INCREASE ON or before MAY 8.

LETES O HEEDTO0


Editor:
The Chairman of the Walton County Republican Party,
Lee Perry has joined with Kelly (Wells) Horton, paid lobby-
ist for Walton County in heading up a Political Action Com-
mittee. The PAC is reported to be attempting to raise up to
$100,000 to oppose tolling of the proposed new bay bridge.
The intent is obviously to promote the passage of a one-half
percent sale tax that would be imposed on all residents
throughout Walton County for the next 18 years, though
the overwhelming majority of residents who rarely or never
cross the bay on Hwy 331.
The Secretary of Florida DOT improved the original pro-
posal of the $102 million state money if Walton kicked in
$75 million, by committing to also completing the four lane
highway from the bay to 1-10 within the next five to six
years. However, the unexpected happened.
In spite of this enhancement the public has not been re-
ceptive to an added tax of any kind and that includes tolls.
In my opinion this non-acceptance sends the message that
folks are tired of increased taxes and are not looking kindly
to forking over for a questionable bridge project.
The public is well aware the highway will become a four-
lane in due time and they are willing to wait for that to
happen. It will be done without a $100 million (including
interest) debt that will take a generation to pay off.
Proponents of the tax will oppose a toll and attempt to


Editor:
Is there a way to sue FDOT for strong arming Walton
County? According to. them, no matter what we vote or de-
cide, we are getting another four-lane wide bridge next to
the one we have, and they will make us pay using local
taxes.
Is this the new third world socialist government of Florida?
Forced health insurance and now forced bridges? Notice
that the Florida Legislature did nothing to stop the forced
buying of health insurance, to protect the citizens of Flor-
ida. With friends like those in Tallahassee, who needs en-
emies?
We seem to have money to burn. Walton tax money, you
know that extra 1/2 cent sales tax that the county uses for
a slush fund? The top 1/2 cent from 6 1/2 to 7 cents is what


Editor:
"For Whom The Bridge Tolls"
The Florida Department of Transportation, (FDOT), has
offered to build another two lane'bridge by the current Clyde
B. Wells bridge if Walton County contributes $75 million to
.the cost of the bridge. In addition, the FDOT will complete
four lanes of 331 between 98 and 1-10 by 2017. The need
for four lanes is due to the influx of visitors during Spring
Break, summer tourists and Snowbirds. In particular, the
need is strong to be able to evacuate citizens and tourists
quickly during the hurricane season. The state prefers a
toll bridge to come up with the $75 million. A toll would
place the major cost of the funds on workers that have to
cross the bridge and is estimated to take 30 years.
An alternate way to pay for the bridge is to put a /2 cent
sales tax increase in effect until the $75 million is paid.
This tax will not apply to food, pharmaceuticals or gasoline
and will not apply to purchases in excess of $5,000. This
tax would put the majority of the cost on the tourists, the
reason we need four lanes to start with. It is estimated the
tax would take 15 to 17 years to Day our portion.


Editor:
I want to share my thoughts concerning the TDC/Point
Washington Forest issue:
Concerning the proposed location of the new Discovery
Center:
I am opposed to any ceding of preservation or park land
for anyone's building. Any kind of development is wrong
and violates the 1999 Agreement signed by the County.
Once cut and developed, these lands can never be restored
to what they were. Build on and develop priva4, commer-
cial land or use the parcel in the Government and Educa-
tion Center. Any permitted development on preservation
land will open the door to more of the same. A location a
short distance north on 331 (or further east or west on 98)
could be easily handled with appropriate signage.
There are problems with the process that brought us to
this impasse:
The public was intentionally or not shut out of the pro-
cess. Lots of money was spent and decisions made well be-
fore there was any opportunity for public input. The TDC
is a function of local government they work for us with
the BCC as their supervisors, but seem to behave like an
independent entity.
The problem might have been avoided if the public/citi-
zens were more involved with that organization and there
was more active oversight by the BCC. There is now even
less opportunity to be engaged with and provide input to
the TDC than there used to be. Somehow they have become


convince the voters a new bridge is so grand and good tor
Walton County that we will reap untold benefits and the
streets will be paved with gold. It will all be talk and glitz
without any proof of data that will give us specifics. There
have been absolutely no studies or surveys made as to the
economic impact or how it will improve the lives of ALL
county residents.
The poll conducted by the Walton County Taxpayers As-
sociation of their members brought about a phenomenal
revelation. People on both sides of the bay have come to-
gether and are thinking alike.
WCTA members, 75 percent, voted overwhelmingly
against the tax: 87 percent of north Walton respondents
and 71 percent of south Walton respondents voted against
the tax.
As to a toll, 67 percent WCTA members voted NO: The
north Walton voters were 77 percent against, while south
Walton members voted 67 percent against.
The grass roots movement to defeat a new sales tax is a
David and Goliath effort. The Republican establishment is
leading the charge for power and control over the vote. We
will find out very soon if the .people wish to lay down and
follow their lead blindly, or will they tell the political estab-
lishment no thanks.
J.B. Hillard
DeFuniak Springs


I'm talking about. County taxes should be used for county
roads, not United States Highways like U.S. 331. We have
plenty of other road paving priorities in Walton.
Q: Have you heard of any accidents on the bridge? A:
NO. Safety should be the biggest concern. I always hear
and read about accidents on U.S. 331, because of no turn
lanes or not being a divided four lane. Every side road is a
potential accident spot waiting to happen. Bridges do not
have this problem. Our bridge is just fine, and fourlaning
the rest of U.S. 331 over the next 10-20 years would be just
fine considering our slow economic growth. Does anybody
remember the economy? Stop the spending. Check No on
May 8.
Randy Henning
Mossy Head


The May 8, 2012 referendum will ask the Walton County
voters to vote yes or no to the % cent sales tax increase
for construction of the bridge. It will not tell voters that a
no vote will result in a toll bridge. Although a few of the
Walton County Commissioners are opposed to a toll bridge,
from the meetings I have attended, they will approve a toll
bridge if the sales tax is defeated. The citizens of Walton
County will not get to vote on this decision.
I encourage everyone to vote for the % cent sales tax and
put the burden for payment on the tourists for whom the
four lanes are being built. We're talking about 50 cents
for every 100 dollars we spend on everything except food,
medicine and gasoline. Otherwise, the workers who have
to cross the bridge daily will probably have to pay between
10' and 20 dollars every week. The actual amount will not
be known until the FDOT completes a full study later this
year.
Respectfully,
Bill Fletcher
Freeport
Walton County Resident


woefully out of touch with the people who live here and that
does not serve any of us well. Condo and homeowners pay
the tax that funds the TDC. What opportunity do they have
to participate in defining direction or other input?
What should the role of the TDC be? What do we need
them to do and who should define that? I think at this point,
the tail is wagging the dog. There needs to be balance be-
tween our quality of life and tourism, more involvement of
the citizens who live here in a meaningful way, and critical
supervision by the BCC.
Do we need a new visitor center or a nature center? I
know there are problems with the existing building and cer-
tainly those should be remedied. But when planning, con-
sider that as people use more technology and apps, there
will be less use for these centers, they are not the wave of
the future.
We already have two nature centers. If the TDC has to
build some kind of public facility to be able to use bed tax
money for their new offices (as I have heard), they need to
build a performance venue (we are losing events because
we don't have one) or an arts center. Creative thinking
here might improve our quality of life as well as meet TDC
needs.
I encourage the BCC to use this problem as an opportu-
nity. I believe solutions can be found that will meet every-
one's needs.

This spring, Sacred

to enhance the health care
setting for patients, visitors

"Arts in Medicine is an
emerging field within health

many have long known and
medical research is now
proving that music, writ-

other art activities can play
an important role in healing
not just the body, but the
mind and spirit of an indi-
vidual," Roger Hall, presi-
dent of Sacred Heart Hos-

said. "The program has
been very successful at our
Gulf County hospital, and
we're very excited to bring it
to the Emerald Coast."

During the month of
March, Sacred Heart's Arts
in Medicine Program hosted
Music in Pictures, an art
exhibit, featuring the work
of more than 200 Walton
County students. The ex-
hibit, displayed in the hos-
pital's Caf6 and atrium,
showcased artwork created
by students in grades K412
who listened-to and visually
interpreted works by 20th
century American composer
Aaron Copland.
More than 1,000 students
from 11 Walton County
Schools participated in the
educational art project pre-
sented by the Rosemary
Beach Foundation. Music
in Pictures began in
September 2011 when Wal-
ton County educators re-
ceived CDs of symphonic
music selected by members
of the Florida State Univer-
sity music faculty and Sin-
fonia Gulf Coast. Students
learned about composer
Aaron Copland and created
a picture while listening
to the music. Artwork was
submitted in November and
a panel of judges selected
finalists based upon the in-
terpretation of the music.
Rosemary Beach Founda-
tion is a nonprofit organiza-
tion dedicated to promoting

ary and other charitable ac-
tivities in Rosemary Beach
and Northwest Florida.

On August 1, 2011 a routine sampling for microbiological contaminants was conducted at various sites throughout the City. We were notified by the lab on August 3, 2011 that two
samples had tested positive for coliform bacteria. This resulted in a violation. We immediately retested the sites that had tested positive as well as one site upstream and downstream of
the positive sites. All samples taken on August 3, 2011 tested negative for coliform bacteria (none were present). However, all distribution samples taken since the above mentioned
samples have tested negative for total coloforms.

The sources of drinking water (both tap
water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes,
streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.
As water travels over the surface of the land or
through the ground, it dissolves naturally
occurring minerals and, in some cases,
radioactive material, and can pick up
substances resulting from the presence of
animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source
water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses
and bacteria, which may come from sewage
treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts
and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or
result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial
or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production,. mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may
come from a variety of sources such as
agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants,
including synthetic and volatile organic
chemicals, which are by-products of industrial
processes and petroleum production, and can als
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be n

naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.


In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
In 2011, the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any
potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are eight potential sources of contamination identified for this system with moderate susceptibility levels. The
assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program Web site at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp or it can be obtained from City of DeFuniak
Springs City Hall.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily
indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency' s Safe
Drinking Water Hotline at 800.426.4791.
In our continuing efforts to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, it may be necessary to make improvements in your water system. The costs of these improvements may be
reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be necessary in order to address these improvements.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer
undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means
to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800.426.4791).
We at the City of DeFunia Springs and CH2M HILL would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers
listed.

Conservation Tips

It is easy to conserve water with just a little effort. Below are some tips that reduce your water usage and also save you money.
* Inspect both the inside and outside of your house for leaky faucets.
* Load the dishwasher and washing machine fully before starting them.
* Install low flow shower heads and water efficient toilets.
* If you wash dishes by hand, don't let the water run.
* Adjust your sprinklers so only the lawn is watered; not sidewalks or street.
* Rather than following a set watering schedule, check for soil moisture two or three inches below the surface before watering.

2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

City of DeFuniak Springs

We are pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our
constant goal is to provide you, consistently, with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water
treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is ground water from five wells. The wells draw from the
Floridan Aquifer, Because of the excellent quality of our water, the only treatment required is chlorine for disinfection purposes.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr. Billy Holloway, Assistant City Manager at 850.892.8500. We encourage our valued
customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regular scheduled meetings. They are held on the second and fourth Monday nights
at 6:00 PM at the DeFuniak Springs City Council Chambers located at 71 US Hwy. 90 W., DeFuniak Springs, Florida.
The City of DeFuniak Springs and CH2M HILL routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this
report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best
available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin
of safety.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted by water systems
to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use results from the IDSE, in conjunction
with their Stage I DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is
necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not
reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.


Coliforms for further information consult the information on the table of the previous page.

Mindy's Adventures in Ag:

Agricultural Happenings and

Updates in Walton County


From Mindy Hittle-McNair:
University of Florida Wal-
ton County Agricultural Ex-
tension Agent
It has been four months
since I arrived in Florida
and started working with
the University of Florida
Walton County Extension. I
must say I am enjoying my
profession.
Extension work allows me


to bridge the gap between sci-
ence based research, teach-
ing, and conversing about
agriculture. Walton County
farmers and ranchers have
been open to me joining the
extension team. I must ad-
mit that sitting behind the
computer is not that en-
joyable for me. With most
jobs today, computer work
just comes with the territo-
ry. More and more'produc-


Shelter House holding

Mother's Day drive


ers have realized that I am
in the office and available
resource for their crop and
livestock needs. Office and
field visits are increasing
and allowing me to assist
producers on a one-on-one
basis. Being out in the field
and working with producers
is what I find most exciting
about Extension. Walking
side by side through a pas-:
ture identifying weeds, dis-
cussing hay quality and for-
age management, and even
working together to process
cattle is not only allowing
me to meet the great people
of this county, but share
tidbits of information to im-


prove their operations. Beef
cattle might be my specialty
and area of choice; however,
most of my questions lately
have to deal with weed con-
trol, chemicals, and estab-
lishment of foragds.
I did remember to take
my camera with me last
week to take a few snap
shots while working some
Fl heifers and their baby
calves. Vaccination pro-
grams are significant to any
cattle operation no matter
the size. With cattle prices
at an all-time high it is im-
perative your cattle herd is
as productive and effective
as possible. There are small
basic items that every cattle
owner can and should do to
increase profitability. I can
help with these matters, you
can stop by the office, call, or
email and I will be happy to
help you.
Cattle producers, you
need to sign up today for an


amazing opportunity to in-
crease your cattle knowledge
starting May 31. This edu-
cational series is designed
for producers that want to
get into the cattle industry,
have inherited cattle, have
40 or fewer cattle, or new to
the cattle industry (operat-
ing 10 years or less). The
series starts May 31 at your
local UF IFAS, Walton Coun-
ty Extension building at 732
N. 9th Street, DeFuniak
Springs, FL 32433. Classes
will start May 31 and end
on June 28, a five week se-
ries. All classes will be held
on Thursday evenings from
6 to, 8 p.m. There is a $30
registration fee per person
that includes coarse mateii-
als and snacks. Registration
closes May 10 and materials
will not be guaranteed after
this date. R.S.V. P.'now to
make sure you get a spot in
this program. Contact the
Walton County Extension

What a busy time of year.
One year ago this week, the
world received news that the
face of extreme terrorism
had been killed. Osama Bin
Laden died almost 10 years
after the Sept. 11, 2001 at-
tacks. I will never forget
where I was when I saw
the black smoke billowing
out of the twin towers, the
second plane make impact,
the implosion and screams
and tears. Today, I teach
students who are too young
to even know what Sept. 11,
2001 was.
On a national scale, the
presidential race is' heat-
ing up with buckets of mud
(rather, oil) being slung at
one another. The Republi-
cans blame the Democrats
for the rising cost at the


pump because it is a hot-
button issue in an election
year, the Democrats blame
the oil-tycoon Republicans,
and "neutral" sources blame
the Federal Reserve for a
nearly 40-percent increase
in the past five months.
In the state of Florida,
Governor Rick Scott has re-
quired surveys from all 67
Supervisor of Elections' of-
fices to rank the efficiency of
their processes (which local
Supervisors have comment-
ed are redundant and "writ-
ten by folks who are not fa-
miliar with what we do." ).
Streamlining efficiency in
other areas as well (though
how efficient is a survey
which requires man-hours
to recalculate redundant
data), Scott has cut De-


apartment of Education and
Department of Corrections
funding: a symbiotic process
by which fewer students will
benefit from the former and
end up at the latter.
Here in our corner of the
world, it's time for the an-
nual rite of passage that is
corsages, bad dancing, and
goofy photos: prom.
Salons, florists, and for-
mal-wear shops will be in
full swing catering to the
needs of sparkly nails, the
perfect color-complimenting
rose or orchid, and the one
in a million dress that only
two other girls will show up
wearing. By the time stu-
dents can go to prom, it's
cool to think prom is uncool,
especially when one wants
to go more than anything
and has had her dress or his
tuxedo picked out all year.
Just this week I had a stu-
dent run in to tell me with
a cheek-splitting grin, "I
got asked to prom!" only to
follow with "but you know,
I don't even care about
prom."


I remember my prom, "An
enchanted evening," com-
plete with a royal blue satin
dress (at an age when satin
still looked good on anyone),
caked-on eye shadow, and
lots and lots of hairspray.
I felt like a lanky awkward
clown at the annual clown
ball. By senior prom, I did
my own hair and makeup
and wore a simple, backless
white'dress. Everything, in-
cluding the pictures, turned
out much better when I fol-
lowed my own .style rather
than trying to look like a clip
from a dolled-up magazine.
Maybe our national and
world leaders will take a
cue from the soon-to-be-
voters who are following
their own paths for a simple
event like prom: be bold, be
different, and focus on what
they bring to the party rath-

It will be interesting to
see what another season

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 3,2012

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Editor:
The County Commission wants to pass the buck to the voters. It was one of them who
started all this by asking FDOT if they'd be willing to four-lane 331 if we kicked in 20-25
percent. When FDOT came back insisting on our forking out $75 million against their 102
Mil for a new bridge instead, the scramble began. The state wants a toll bridge. We voters
don't. The Commissioners could have solved this by telling the state no thanks, but they
opted instead to enlist fall guys, first the WCTA, and now all the rest of us. I see the WCTA
has said No again to both. It's time for the rest of us to speak up.
The voters of this county have had enough. The present bridge is perfectly adequate for
its present load, and it will be a long time before we need more lanes. What pretty much
everyone in the county agrees we need is four laning 331, and we don't care if it's a high
visibility project in Tallahassee or not. We just want what most everyone knows we need,
and the county should hold out and insist that the state four-lane 331 and re-visit the
bridge when the need is clear.
If we get the $9 gas our Energy Secretary has said publicly that he wants for us, our
drive-in market is going to get smaller. Let's not compound all the troubles this county
has by either raising taxes or imposing a toll. I'm voting No to the tax, and I'm writing our
Commissioners to insist that they not impose a toll if and when this tax falls on its face.
Let's all get together and tell the business as usual crowd No, many thousands of times
NO.
David Robinson
Miramar Beach, FL


LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Editor:
No toll booths to collect the fee? Well they say photos will be taken of the license tag
numbers. Then a bill be sent to the owners to collect the fee.
Cars hauling trailers, bicycles tied on back, muddy tags, coolers tied on where is the tag
in evidence?
There is costly equipment, finding the owner via somehow, then mailing the charges
due. Out of state tourists get the charge and will they pay?
Does this sound like far out? You bet. Who thought up this idea. They have vapor in-
duced brains and some kind of lala land mentality. We have troubles and hope and pray
there will be some down to earth thinking about this situation.
Eleanor Frick
DeFuniak Springs


LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Editor:

Watching the news I find that when I am 82 my Social Security benefits will not be
available. When I purchased my vehicle and trailer tags I find that Brad Drake and other
State Representatives have really done a number on my expendable income. And just try
to purchase a new vehicle.
A purchase of a single piece of candy today for a $1.79 cost me 13 cents in state tax.
Check your cell phone bill, tax on a new set of tires; Just try to evict someone from a home.
The state fees are extreme.
The elected officials of our county have served the public up with a great opportunity to
begin a true process of change. What they have done for us is make us as citizens, wake
up and they have presented the opportunity to become involved and powerful. They now
view us as citizens out of control. This my friends is a great fear for our politicians. This is
America as it should be.
They have presented to us a proposal that will allow the voter to self-inflict more pun-
ishment on the working man in the form of a tax or a toll in order to obtain something that
no one can say is necessary for us to have to succeed as a community. Emergency Manage-
ment Director Joe Preston could not tell us in a public hearing in Miramar, what effect- the
four lanes would have on the evacuation of the beach. It appears that the backup of traffic
during an evacuation would either occur at the bride or at 1-10. Of course he is quick to
point out that bridges hIaee a definite wind speed that closes the bridges and the, access of
evacuation. ,,
Records will show that since the oil spill scare we have had record crowds on our beach-
es and the TDC is rolling in money. Their pockets are burning to find a new way to spend
the money that is dedicated to only what they want. It is amazing to me that taxes can be
collected in a county and then secured for special interest to be spent on new songs to sing,
or on future deals that may provide a new home for the TDC.
As I stated in a community fact finding meeting, you can take up four miles of blacktop
on 331 and 83 and the visitors will still find themselves on our beaches. Apparently past
leaders of the counties that surround us had a vision and plan that has resulted in Walton
County having great highways and bridges all around us.
Our politicians are now stressing that the bridge will be our answer for economic devel-
opment. It is rewarding to see that economic development is an issue of importance. We
have an industrial site in Mossy Head that appears to be on a back burner. By this way,
this industrial park in on a four-lane roadway.
When asked why do we need this new bridge and four lane roadway, the majority of the
time I am told, "Because, I want it." "We have worked hard to have this bridge and I think
it would be good to have."
I'm sorry but that ant going to get it.
It is time for us to use the powerful tool that we have and send a loud message to our
community leaders and the governor of this state that taxing the., people is not going to be
tolerated any longer.
In recent meetings the DOT is clear to state that tolling of roadways of Florida is the
thing of the future. If future maintenance is required on a roadway it may become a toll
road. We must send a message with our vote that we recognize the fact that a toll is a
tax.
We must also speak loudly that a tax and spend politician will not be successful in fu-
ture desires to raise taxes rather that cut the cost of government. In fact, if they believe in
tax and spend they may need to seek another line of work.
Changein our nation starts today, right here in Walton County. We have an opportuni-
ty to kill this tax before it begins. Many say that the bridge is going to be built even though
we vote against the tax. They say the leaders will give permission to toll the bridge and our
vote will make no difference. If they choose this form of poison we will again have to speak
loudly at the polls. At some point they will get the message that we are the boss and they
are to listen and do what we want them to do. We currently have a gaggle of want-to-be
politicians and some that are currently asking to be re-elected. Ask them about their plan
for cutting the cost of government and how they stand on this proposed tax. They owe us
an answer. A.politician that touts a new tax should be defeated and sent to the house.
It is said that if we.as a community say no to the bridge, the state will toll it any way.
If someone else other than the people of Walton County want to go out on a limb and put
their name on a debt of $75 to $110 million, plus interest, I say "knock yourself out." "You
will do it on your on dime." Not mine.
Honestly, the city of Birmingham, Ala. recently filed bankruptcy after borrowing money
to upgrade a sewer project.
We all recognize that our county is supported largely by tourism. This is a very delicate
form of income in that a tropical storm or hurricane may bring about a reduction of income
for an extended period of time. If this occurs, the lending institution holding a note will
come knocking, and we will be responsible. As I have stated in an informational meeting,
we cannot afford to make a bad economic decision at this time. Borrowing money is at this


time is a bad decision for us as individuals, and as a community.
A resident of south Walton made a statement at an information meeting that the amount
of money the 1/2 cent tax will cost us as individuals is minuscule to the value it will bring
to our community. He said we as a people had to be brain dead to not see this. To this I
say that if this is such a small amount of money, why don't the elected officials reduce the
amount of expenditures of the county to a point where future savings will prevent out of
control borrowing. We then want have to borrow money to build a bridge that we find our-
selves, "Wanting."
Lastly, the Florida Department of Transportation is using this threat that they have
presented to the people of this county to test the waters for future tax and spend endeav-
,.'Ts. Our nation has a rule not to deal with a situation where you are being held hostage
...J we should not deal with them now. Remember, we have paid taxes on our fuel usage
and we have done our part. The state of Florida is watching and our vote could go a long
way in sending a message that we will accept no further taxes and fees.
The time has come to make a difference. If politicians want to commit political suicide,
so be it. But for me, I will vote no and if we win we can hold our heads high and say we can
make a difference. Change starts here!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Editor:
I have lived in Walton County for 30 years. This county has lived imprudently beyond
its means for some years now. It's almost funny that after failing to prepare for a rainy
day when the economy was booming and tax revenues exploding with skyrocketing prop-
erty appraisals and their associated taxes, we and the five blind mice find ourselves in the
midst of that rainy day with lots more heavy rain in the forecast. Watching appraisals and
tax revenues go down, down, down, and our county officials singing in the rain, speaking
of raising our taxes or imposing a toll for a bridge we don't want or need. Especially ironic
to hear as one of the justifications that we need it for a rainy day when we might have to
evacuate because of the winds associated with that rain,and which winds will close that
same bridge when the wind hits 40 mph:
If we approve this tax, the laugh's on us. The county needs to be finding ways to cut
spending and cut taxes, not raise them. We don't need the state holding a gun to our heads
in this unprecedented manner. Enough of this nonsense. We did not ask for this bridge, we
don't want it forced down our throats, and it's time to cut spending taxes, not raise them.
Vote No,
Nina Prentice
Miramar Beach



i LETTER TO THE EDITORiI

Editor:
Usually when someone addresses the public through the media, it for complaints. To-
day, however, I would like to commend the voluntary Fire Department in our area. On
Monday, April 23, 2012, I received a call telling me one of my barns was on fire. I called
911 to find out there were already emergency vehicles dispatched to the scene. When I ar-
rived the PDL Vo. Fire Dept. was already there. With a concerted effort volunteers. from
the following departments responded and the fire was contained to one barn. and one out
building. The other barn beside it was saved. While the one barn and out-building along
with all its contents was a total loss, I witnessed an effort by so many working together,
that they deserve high praise. So I want to say thanks to them and everyone involved.
Ponce de Leon V.F.D., Argyle V.F.D., Westville V.F.D., Caryville V.F.D., Pine Log V.F.D.,
Esto V.F.D., Liberty V.F.D., Darlington/Gaskin V.F.D.. Samson V.F.D., yes three counties
and two states responding for one common good. My family and I want to say thanks

P.S. Thanks to West FL. Elec. Coop for a quick response to disconnect the electricity as
well.




DFSPD investigating



a strong arm robbery


On April 25, in the early
morning hours, members
from the DeFuniak. Springs
Police responded to the
Chautauqua Nursing Home
located on 785 South 2nd
Street in reference to an al-
leged strong arm robbery.
At the time of this release
the investigating officers re-
ported that the undisclosed


victim got out of her vehicle
to enter the establishment,
and when doing so she was
approached by a black male
unknown to her. The male
subject then demanded that
she handover her purse.

After a brief struggle the
suspect was able to obtain
the purse, at which time he


fled on foot into the nearby
woodland. Fortunately the
victim was not seriously
, hurt. Some of the items were
recovered and has been re-
turned to the victim.

Undisclosed evidence was
collected for laboratory test-
ing. Updates will follow as
investigation continues.

nounced that citizens can
now gain access to neigh-
borhood level crime incident
data in near real time.
"'Proviin;g reliable, time-

The i'ublic can access
the free crime data through
the website or through the
CIrum Reports iPhone app,
;Ivailible for free download

The new service even lets
local citizens sign up for free

added. "And we hope that


have fallen far behind urban
areas in terms of broadband
availability but that is now

giving the community this
information will help them
understand crime trends
and lower crime in their
neighborhoods."

in the panhandle, north cen-
tral Florida and the heart-
land region in south Flori-
da.
Providing broadband ser-
vices, however, is only part
of the equation. Teaching
new users how to take full
advantage of the internet
is the next step. The Flori-
da Learning Alliance and
Workforce Florida, Inc. have
taken the lead in an initia-
tive to address broadband
education issues. They have
recently launched a multi-
miedia campaign to teach
new and novice users how to
use the internet.
The campaign centers on
the development of an ag-
gregate website that assem-
bles topics such as health-
care, education, job services,
internet safety, as well as
other important topics The
website, www.floridainter-
nettour.com, simplifies and
demystifies the process of
learning by allowing the


user to participate in a self-
directed guided tour of the
internet.
According to Mary Bed-
ford, the Executive Direc-
tor of the Florida Learning
Alliance, "Many rural. Flo-
ridians, including children,
have not had an opportu1
nity to take advantage of
all the internet has to offer
especially in terms of educa-
tion. High speed internet
can change that and this
website will help make new
users more comfortable as
they learn."
Educators point to sever-
al advantages of high speed
internet availability besides
the obvious research capa-
bilities. Rural students can
have easier access to dual
enrollment, digital books
and collaborative home
studies, for example.
Internet safety is an im-
portant component of the
website as new users may
be unaware of the dangers


of providing personal infor-
mation. More importantly,
the website guides parents
on how to block inappropri-
ate websites from being ac-
cessed.
A free internet training
workshop is being hosted by
the Walton County School
District on May 8 from 4:30
to 5:30. p.m. at the WISE
Center, 555 Walton Road,
Defuniak Springs. To pre-
register, contact Lynn
Gothard or Larche Hardy at
the Panhandle Area Educa-
tional Consortium. Seating
is limited and reservations
.will be on a first come, first
serve basis. Call toll-free
1-877-873-7232 to reserve a
seat.
The website for the edu-'
cational campaign was de-
veloped with input from
regional advisory boards
throughout Florida. .It is

Backpacks



of Love


The "Backpacks of Love"
program is designed to sup-
port and help children in
need. In Walton County
alone, elementary schools
average a rate 70-80 per-
cent of students on free or
reduced lunches. It is clear
that child hunger is present
in our country, our county,
and even our town. The
"Backpack" program helps
children dealing with hun-
ger by providing weekend
backpack packs-a bag of
"child-friendly" and non- -
perishable food items that a
child can take home over the
weekend. This helps ensure
that-even when the chil-
dren are away from school-
they have something to eat.

The Program
The Backpack program
is a branch of the Feeding
America organization. Wal-
ton County is working with
the Bay Area Food Bank (a
Feeding America affiliate
bank in Milton, Fla.) to pro-
vide the backpack bags for
the children. This partner-
ship will begin in August
2012. Until then, through in-
dependent sponsorships, the
program will run through
Portland United Methodist
Church. The Feeding Amer-
ica sponsored program and
the independent program
operates in exactly the same
way-the only difference
will be how the money is
managed/directed to from
April to August.
The program is run by
sponsorship-local groups,
businesses, churches, and
individuals may make do-
nations to run the program.
It is suggested that groups
agree to a monthly agree-
ment in sponsorship (ex-
ample- Mrs. Jones makes a
monthly gift of $20 or the
Methodist Church sponsors
15 kids monthly/annually).
The bags cost on average
$3 per child per week-
-meaning an average of $12
a month, $108 a year.
The program is centered
on the school in need, orga-
nized by one main sponsor.
Through the main sponsor,
the donations are gathered,
and organized. The main
sponsor also is in charge or
organizing and distributing
the bags. For Freeport El-
ementary School (FES) the
main sponsors) are Rachael
Jones and Jennifer Nick,
currently. This is organized
in this way to eliminate con-
fusion, and so that there
is one vein to contact and
go through to gather dona-


tions, orchestrate distribu-
tion, and contact the food
bank.

How it works

There are four steps to
the Backpack program:

1.) Donations/Sponsorship
2.) Food Delivery/Pick up
3.) Packing Bags
4.) Bag Distribution

For the end of this se-
mester, Rachael Jones and
Jennifer Nick will gather
donations and purchase
the food. The bags are as-
sembled through and at
Portland United Methodist
Church, and then brought
to the school for distribu-
tion. In August, donations
will be gathered and sent
to the Bay Area Food Bank,
who will-deliver food to the
church (and any other sites
that may arise) for bag as-
sembly.
Distribution of the bags is
at the discretion of the teach-
ers. Since the program is
meant to help and not hurt,
it is suggested to deliver
the bags to the children dis-
creetly. (They know that all
teachers are concerned and
eager to help their students,
so this basically occurs
anyway.) In the same way,
teachers help identify the
children in need. In August,
they will be provided forms
for the Bay Area Food Bank
to evaluate and help gather
and accurate number of stu-
dents in need. For now, this
relies fully on teachers giv-
ing the information to Jen-
nifer Nick.
They are here to help
these wonderful, sweet kids.
It is hard to believe that,
in our country, hunger is a
problem people must face.
For that reason, we must
take it upon ourselves to
help. Mother Theresa once
said,-"If you can't feed 100
people, then just feed one."
That is the philosophy we
must adopt-we may not
be able to help the whole
world, but we can make a
major difference for kids in
need at FES!
For questions or to offer
sponsorship or donations,
contact: Rachael Jones
at rachael.lauren.jones@
gmail.com or Jennifer Nick
at nickj@walton.kl2.fl.us.
The Herald Breeze will be
following-up on this commu-
nity-wide action program as
it expands.


RACHAEL JONES, pictured here, has been one of the
driving forces, along with Jennifer Nick in starting a com-
munity based, hyper-local food program for children that
may be in danger of going hungry in the Freeport area. Pro-
grams like Backpacks of Love are already in action in south
Walton and will be starting in DeFuniak Springs in the
fall.


The Florida Chautauqua Theatre

presents Disney's Beauty and the Beast


Step into the enchanted
world of Broadway's mod-
ern classic, Disney's Beauty
and the Beast. Based on the
Academy-Award winning
animated feature, the stage
version includes all of the
wonderful songs written by
Alan Menken and the late
Howard Ashman along with
new songs by Menken and
Tim Rice.
Audiences will be trans-
ported to the heart of pro-
vincial life in a lovely French
town. When Maurice be-
comes lost in the woods on
the way to the fair, he seeks
shelter in an old castle, but
the master of the castle is
a horrible beast Aiat takes
him captive. Maurice's
daughter, Belle, must then
give up her freedom to save
his life. Belle's taming of
the unfortunate Beast and
his ultimate transforma-
tion back into a handsome
prince enthralled Broadway
audiences for over 13 years
and will now enthrall our lo-
cal theatre audience.
Some 37 local actors
ranging in age from five


to... well, let's say a bit
older than five... will fill the
stage with singing, dancing,
laughter and chills. This
"tale as old as time" will
feature the spectacular cos-
tumes Florida Chautauqua
Theatre patrons have come
to expect from the hands of
their amazingly talented
costume mavens. Disney's
Beauty and the Beast offers
a wonderful opportunity to
bring the entire family to-
gether for live theatre at its
best and to support the arts
here in our extended com-
munity.
Production dates are:
Thursday, May 10 at 7

Dear Auntie Em, "


Dear Auntie Em,

I'm frustrated. I have
a friend whom I love very
much but we have grown
apart over the years. I know
there are those friendships
that pick up right where
They have left off and we
,have been that way, but
now, there's something be-
tween us that is affecting
our communications. My
friend is unhappy and sick.
They have suffered many
losses, and have decided to
cover the pain of those losses
by medicating themselves.
I really don't want to over-
share about their personal
life."I am not perfect my-
self and understand crawl-
ing in a bottle. I have done
it a few times, but I always
crawl back, out. I am afraid
my friend does not want to
leave their pain reliever of
choice.
I have tried to talk to
other friends about the is-
sue, and they are worried,
but all of us are afraid that
confronting them would not
be the best choice of routes
to take. Their personality
would become more intro-
verted we fear and we would
totally lose them.
I am at an impasse on
what to do if anything. I feel
guilty and angry with my
friend and myself that they
are slowly killing themselves
and I am standing by feeling
helpless. What do you think
I should do, if anything?

Helpless

Dear Helpless,
I understand your feel-
ings and I also understand
the guilt that comes along
with self-imposed limits.
Where do we stop and our
loved ones begin? What is
our role in helping or re-
stricting another person's
free will, even if it is the will
to self-destruct?
I once had a friend that
was being abused. I had no
doubt about it, but every
time I asked them, they
made an excuse. They were
clumsy, they would tell me.
It was an accident, they
said. Finally, I confronted
my friend and their abuser
together. I was riddled with
guilt at the idea of sitting by
and watching this happen.
The end result was not pret-
ty. My friend stopped the
relationship, a few months
after they stopped talking
to me, but they picked up
another similar relationship


down the road. It was re-
ally never about me or their
relationship, it was about
their pattern and reliving
it over and over with differ-
ent people playing the same
roles.
The best advice I can of-
fer you is this: You can stage
an intervention and risk los-
ing them, or you can decide
to gently try to sway them
into seeing what is going
on, but either way you risk
your friendship. This way,
at least you know you tried,
but if the relationship goes
south, you can't blame your-
self. If they hurt themselves
and you do nothing, then
you will have to work your
own feelings out.
Bottom line is there are
some people in this world
that are always going to be
victims, as recently told to
me by another friend. Try as
we might, they are zeroed
in on hurting themselves
and repeating past pain.
Sometimes one needs -to be
allowed to hit rock bottom
before they can rebuild. As a
friend, you can be there for
them after they hit that bot-
tom, or you can try and catch
them before they make it
there. You are the only one
that knows your friend as
well as you do. That is the
place from which you will
have to make your decision.
Good luck and God bless.

In Memory
Lee and Vera Holden
10/09/11 04/28/11


I held your hand in mine and thought about the times
you talked of going home but feared leaving me alone. I
couldn't find a way to tell you it was ok, instead just pray
to God to just give me one more day. I found the words to
say three days before a year ago today "Nanny it's ok." As
I think about those dark hours while I held your hand in
mine, my eyes begin to shower, despair was certainly at
the top of the hour. I knew indeed this'was the last breath.
Your spirit is now free...I miss you more than ever. Some
days I find myself in dismay wondering what on earth am
I going to do today? I think about our talks, walks, and gro-
cery trips and laugh at the memories we've made. I dream
about the day we join hands and you show me the way to
the mansion over the hill top that you talked about some
days. I miss you more than ever. Your memories will be
instilled forever. You are missed dearly today and always.
I love you Nanny, and until that glorious day!

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY.3, 2012


Paxton Baseball Earns District Title


By PATRICK CASEY and
REID TUCKER
The Paxton Bobcats got
out of a bases loaded jam
in the top of the seventh in-
ning as Kahler Lang made
a grab of a pop-up by Ma-
lone's Brett Henry to hand
the Walton County squad
their sixth consecutive dis-
trict title and seventh since
the 2004 season under coach
Jeff Bradley.
Grant Stewart recorded
the final two outs from the
mound as he struck out Nick
Breeden on a 2-2 pitch after
relieving Mason McCormick
for the second out of the in-
ning. After an error and a
walk, Stewart got Henry on
the first pitch of his at-bat
to send the Paxton crowd in
attendance into celebration
mode.
"I knew this one would
be difficult," Bradley said
after pacing in front of the
dugout as his team strug-
gled to close out the win in
enemy territory. "We got the
emotional' win over Laurel
Hill on Thursday, then had
to regroup to beat a team
that got us here in the regu-
lar season and back in 2009
in the state playoffs. It is a
great testament to our boys,
six in a row!"
After a quick first inning
that saw no one reach base
for either side, Malone got
going in the second frame.
The Tigers took advantage
of an error, a pair of walks
and two wild pitches by Bob-


cats starter Zach Forehand
to take a 2-0 lead.
Paxton came back with a
run of their own in the bot-
tom of the inning as two er-
rors by Malone's shortstop
and? a double by Dustin
Geoghagan plated a run.
Malone added another
run in the top of the third
as Robert Orshall delivered
a sacrifice fly to plate Jona-
than Sikes for a 3-1 advan-
tage.
The Bobcats matched the
host squad's run with one of
their own in the bottom of
the inning as Ryan Gilbert
delivered a single that drove
in Mason McCormick to cut
the margin to 3-2.
. The fourth inning turned
the game in Paxton's favor
as the Bobcats struck for
four runs as Geoghagan led
off with his second double of
the contest. Forrest Wibbing
reached on an error with Jer-
emy Jerkins earning a walk
to load the bases and chase
Malone starter Jonathan
Sikes. Henry took the mound
and promptly walked Stew-
art to tie the game. Mason
McCormick then doubled in
two runs with Stewart get-
ting gunned down at the
plate for the first out of the
inning. Forehand laid down
a sacrifice for the second out
as McCormick took third
base and a Gilbert grounder
ticked out of the Malone first
baseman's glove on the re-
ceiving throw from a fellow
fielder, allowing McCormick


to score the sixth run of the
game. Gilbert was caught in
an attempt to steal second
moments later but the dam-
age had already been done.
Up 6-3, the Tigers
scratched back with a run
in the tbp of the fifth inning
as Forehand hit the lead-off
batter before getting a fly
ball to leftfield for the first
out of the inning. Sikes then
drew a walk to put two run-
ners on and coach Bradley
went to the mound to sum-
mon McCormick to pitch.
Travlean Shumaker even-
tually scored to cut the lead
to 6-4 but McCormick got
the next two outs to end the
fifth inning.
McCormick hit Brett Hen-
ry in the sixth inning with
one out and pinch-runner
Devin Smith took his place
at first base. Smith then at-
tempted to steal second but
was gunned down by catcher
Marcus Bradley for the sec-
ond out of the inning. The
Bobcats committed a field-
ing error moments later to
put another runner on, but
Cody Henson grounded out
to shortstop to end the in-
ning.

Paxton put two runners
on in the sixth inning but
could not add any more runs
before Henry coaxed a pop
out and fly ball to leftfield to
end the inning.
McCormick started the
top of the seventh and Shu-
maker stroked a 2-1 pitch

. for a single. Malone moved
to the top of their batting
order but Garrett Harris
popped out to third base for
the first out. It got dicey from
there. McCormick hit Sikes
to bring the go-ahead run to
the plate and after posting
a 2-2 count on power hit-
ter Nick Breeden, Bradley
called time and summoned
Stewart to the mound. The
eighth grader needed only
one pitch to send Breeden
back to the dugout as he
got a swinging strikeout for
the second out of the inning.
An error followed by a wild
pitch cut the lead to 6-5 with
Antwain Johnson earning a
four pitch walk to load the
bases. Henry then tried to
put the ball in play on the
first pitch from Stewart and
promptly popped up to first
base with Lang standing his
ground and squeezing his
glove shut for the final out
just a few feet from the bag.
Their focus not deterred
by the recent Laurel Hill
(11-9) self-vandalism con-
troversy, the Bobcats got a
taste of poetic justice when
Stewart pitched a four-hit
shutout.against the Hoboes
two days prior in the Dis-
trict 1-1A semifinal. Paxton
made good use of seven hits
to score 11 answer-less runs,
cutting the game short by an
inning and a half. Steward
allowed just four hits to get
the win, walking three bat-
ters and striking out eight
in the process. t
Though Paxton put the'
bat on the ball, the Hoboes
did their part to ensure the
Bobcats' mercy-rule win,
committing five errors as a
team, while starting pitcher
Kyle Slingerland walked
four batters and gave up
three hits in the bottom
of the third inning. Half of
Paxton's six runs were un-
earned, while those driven
in by (Marcus) Bradley and
(Dustin) Geoghagan counted-
against Slingerland. Paxton
had two errors in the field
but neither ended in more
than a runner reaching
first.
Tyler Zessin was switched
in for Slingerland at the tail-
end of the third and coaxed a
fly-out to end the inning, but
he gave up four more hits in
Paxton's next at-bat. Stew-
art and Forehand reached
on fielding errors at first and
shortstop and (Ryan) Gil-
bert had a two-RBI single,
scoring Forehand and (Ma-
son) McCormick to make it
8-0. Laurel Hill got a sec-
ond out and looked poised
to salvage the inning, but
Zessin pegged Bradley in
the shoulder, which allowed
Geoghagan to drive in two
more runs with a single to
the left field gap.
Paxton scored the fi-
nal run on a Jeremy Jer-
kins single which brought
Geoghagan around the bags
after Forrest Wibbing was

also hit by stray pitch. Only
a mixup on the part of the
Bobcat baserunners gave
way to the final out of the
inning, or else Paxton could
have scored twice more, as
Wibbing and Jerkins were
left stranded.
Laurel Hill's Tyler Sim-
mons singled with one out
in the top of the fifth with a
shot to shallow left field but
McCormick caught a Sling-
erland fly ball to make it
two outs. The Bobcats then
intentionally walked Zessin,
and the last out, came when
Trayvon Calloway went
down swinging after four
pitches.
Geoghagan and Gilbert
had two hits for Paxton, and
Bradley, Jerkins and Mc-
Cormick each had a one hit.

Area baseball teams fall


By PATRICK CASEY
Walton, South Walton
and Ponce de Leon saw their
baseball seasons come to a
close last week as each team
put up a valiant effort but
could not get past the semi-
final round to earn a state
playoff berth.
Walton got an outstand-
ing performance from Bren-
dan Leach in his final ca-
reer start for the Braves
as he threw a no-hitter but
was undone by a walk, wild
pitch and error to plate the
only run of the game in a 1-0


loss at Marianna.
Leach tallied a dozen
strikeouts in the contest and
allowed only three batters
to reach base on the night
but a second inning walk to
Kody Bryan proved costly as
the Bulldogs turned it into
the only run of the game.
Walton struggled at the
plate as well, though the
Braves did get three hits
on the night. Alex Brack,
Angus Anderson and Chris
Murphy each had singles
in different innings and an
error in the second inning


WALTON SENIOR ANGUS ANDERSON' had a single
in the sixth inning for one of the Braves three hits in Mari-
anna on April 24. Braves starter Brendan Leach threw a
no-hitter while striking out 12 Bulldogs but Marianna got
the only run to earn the win. (Photo by Patrick Casey)


by the Bulldogs gave the
Braves four baserunners on
the night. Unfortunately for
Walton, none of them were
able to get as far as third
base as senior Michael Mad-
er had 14 strikeouts of his
own in picking up the win.
Walton saw a hard-luck
season come to a close with
an 8-11 record while Marian-
na advanced to the District
1, Class 4A title game, on
Thursday night and pulled
a major upset with a 3-2 win
over Pensacola Catholic to
capture the district crown.


Ponce de Leon pulled
their own upset in the Dis-
trict 3, Class A tournament
on April 23 as they knocked
off second seeded Graceville
3-0 behind a dominant pitch-
ing performance from junior
Codie Allen. The Pirates ju-
nior struck out 11 batters in
the contest while allowing
just six hits as he threw the
complete game to pick up
the win.
PDL got on the scoreboard
in the fourth inning with
the help of a pair of hits, an
error and a squeeze play at

the plate to score two runs.
The Pirates added anoth-
er run in the sixth inning for
the final margin of 3-0.
PDL was unable to cap-
ture that same magic the
next day as their season
came to an end with a 9-2
loss to Wewahitchka in Al-
tha for a final record of 8-14
in 2012.
South Walton got an 8-7
win over Franklin County on
the opening day of the Dis-
trict 4, Class A tournament
at Bozeman despite tally-
ing only three hits on the
afternoon. Franklin County
self-destructed as they com-
mitted seven errors in the
field, had three passed balls
from their catcher, threw
two wild pitches and left 12
runners on base.
South Walton got the win
as Sage Roberts closed the
door on the mound over the
final two innings despite the
club giving up eight walks
and ten hits in the contest.
The Walton County team
trailed 6-1 going into the
bottom of the second inning
but responded with five runs
of their own to tie the game
as a hit batter, two walks,
an error and catcher's in-
terference turned the frame
into a marathon that South
Walton used to get back in
the game. Catcher Rex Rut-
ledge delivered the decisive
blow in the bottom of the
sixth inning with a single
that scored Tyler Slotter for
an 8-7 lead.
The Seahawks would not
recover from early-inning
woes the next day as Lib-
erty County scored six runs
in the first two innings and
held on for a 6-3 victory be-
hind junior pitcher David
Black.


Five errors and a balk in
the first two innings helped
the Bulldogs send 10 men to
the plate in the second in-
ning to chase Rex Rutledge
from the mound after fac-
ing one -batter to start the
third. Joe Canalejo came in
and pitched the final four
innings while allowing only
one hit but the deficit proved
too much for the squad.
South Walton cut the lead
to 6-3 in the sixth inning but
a double play with the bases
loaded kept the inning from
getting away from the Bull-
dogs.
The Seahawks were back
at it again in the seventh
inning as Dustin Allen and
Sage Roberts singled, fol-
lowed by a walk to Rutledge
to load the bases with two
outs. Tyler Townson's squib
shot off the end of the bat
was then caught by Bulldogs
shortstop Hayden Swier to
end the game.
South Walton saw their
season come to an end with
a 16-11 record as Townson,
Rutledge and Shafer Martin
played their final games as
seniors during the event.
Tourney Notes: South
Walton's playoff chances
took a severe blow when
Alex Astin went down with
an arm injury in early April.
The Seahawks pitching
depth was severely strained
from that point on. Liberty
County defeated Bozeman
to win the district title on
Thursday night behind a
no-hitter for a 2-0 win. PDL
did a great job to knock off
Graceville in the opening
round but ran out of pitch-
ing in a 9-2 loss to Wewa,
which then lost to Sneads
4-2 in the District 3 title
game.

Walton High School se-
nior Allyson Huffman signed
a letter of intent to play vol-
leyball at Kentucky's Berea
College come fall. Huffman
and her parents, Doug and
Michelle, as well as her
team mates and coaching
staff from the Lady Braves
volleyball squad, attended
a brief signing ceremony at
the school on Friday, April
27. Though she received of-
fers of sports and academic
scholarships from five dif-
ferent colleges and univer-
sities, three of which were
also located in Kentucky,
Huffman said she knew
she wanted to attend Be-
rea, which competes in the
National Association of In-
tercollegiate Athletics, from
the first time she toured the
campus. Huffman, who first
began playing volleyball at
age 7, plans to major in sec-
ondary education, with the
intent of becoming a high
school English teacher and
volleyball coach upon gradu-
ation. As an institution, Be-
rea. accepts less than 14 per-
cent of applicants each year,
and every student is provid-
ed with the equivalent of a
four-year full-tuition schol-
arship in exchange for their
participation in a work-
study program at the col-
lege. Huffman crossed the
300-kill mark during her
senior volleyball season at
Walton and had 175 blocks
to her credit. She averaged
five aces arid five digs per
match.
Alabama junior Alexa
Guarachi made the All-SEC


rule win on Tuesday, April
24, though Jay went on to
lose to tournament host Hol-
mes County two days later,
ending the season with a
9-13 record. The Bulldogs
themselves had a stellar
showing in their first tour-
nament game, when Colin
Myrick pitched a 3-0 shut-
out against Chipley, but the
loss to Jay finished their


season at a 9-12 mark.
Competent early-game
pitching from Freeport's
Austin Woodard and Jay's
Tyler Prescott kept the game
scoreless for four innings
with only a handful of hits
being given up by each side.
While those base hits failed
to put runs on the board,
the Royals nevertheless had
runners in prime scoring


position early, as Hunter
Vaughn and Tate Upton
were poised on third and
second before the side was
retired by Woodard. Neither
team had many chances af-
ter that, until, that is, the
fifth inning, when things
went south for Freeport.
Things started off looking
like business as usual for
the solid Freeport infield, as

First Team in.women's ten-
nis last week. She has been
a steady fixture in the na-
tional rankings, both in
singles and doubles. The
Destin native (and South
Walton High School gradu-
ate) was named SEC Player
of the Week twice this sea-
son and only lost one singles
match in SEC play, which
came against a higher-
ranked opponent. Guarachi
has amassed 30 victories
in singles, taking down
nine nationally-ranked foes
along the way, while also
adding 24 wins in doubles.
This is her second consecu-
tive, season making the
All-SEC First Team, and
third year overall that she
has been recognized by the
league as she was a member
of the All-SEC Second Team
and All-Freshman Team in
2010.
Freshman Erin Stephens,
of Santa Rosa Beach, made
the All-SEC freshman ten-
nis team for the University
of Mississippi. She played
all her matches in the top
half of the lineup and posted
a 6-5 record in the SEC in
both singles and in doubles
with senior Gabby Rangel.
She was twice named the
SEC Freshman of the Week.
Stephens becomes the sev-
enth freshman in program
history to earn All-SEC first
or second team honors.
Ronnie Sneed, who played
his high school football at
Tallahassee Florida High,
signed a free agent deal
with the Detroit Lions this
past week. He performed
extremely well at the line-
backer position for Kentucky


in his final two seasons.
The native of Tallahassee
played in 42. career games
for UK, making 25 consecu-
tive starts to end his career.
Sneed finished his career
with 148 tackles, including
133 tackles in his junior and
senior seasons. During the
2011 season, Sneed had 71
tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss
and two interceptions. His
career-best game came this
season at LSU, where he
earned 11 tackles against
the No. 1 team in the na-
tion.
The Kentucky baseball
team suffered its first South-
eastern Conference series
defeat of the year last week,
falling in a rubber match
on Sunday at the hands of
defending conference cham-
pion Vanderbilt, also drop-
ping a midweek game at No.

final exams and returns to
action on Thursday, host-
ing No. 1 Florida in a three-
game series at Cliff Hagan
Stadium. Kentucky (36-9,
14-7 SEC) sits in a three-
way tie atop the conference
standings, joining Western
Division leader, No. 3 LSU
and No. 4 South Carolina.
UK has three conference
weekend meetings remain-
ing, hosting No. 1 Florida
and Alabama, and traveling
to Mississippi State. The
Wildcats own league series
wins over South Carolina,
LSU, No. 10 Ole Miss, No.
9 Arkansas, No. 18 Georgia
and Tennessee.
South Carolina swept a
three-game series vs. Ala-
bama this past weekend.
The Gamecocks are now


33-11 and 14-7 in the SEC.
South Carolina is currently
tied for first place in the
Southeastern Conference
with Kentucky and LSU
with nine league games re-
maining. The Gamecocks
have won five consecutive
weekend series in the league
as well as 11 straight confer-
ence games. South Carolina
is also 15-4 in the last 19
games played.
The -third ranked Ala-
bama softball team ended
the week with sole posses-
sion of first place in the
Southeastern, Conference
standings, setting up a series
against Florida which will
determine the league title
this weekend. With one win,
the Crimson Tide will clinch
a share of the championship
and two wins will secure
its third straight outright
league title. Alabama went
3-1 last week, opening with
a 12-0 thrashing of Troy.
The Tide then hit the road
and downed Arkansas, 13-6.
The Razorbacks took an 8-1
win on Saturday, snapping
a 31-game winning streak
against Arkansas, but the
Tide bounced back with a
5-1 win on Sunday.

the Royals' Sammy James
turned a single into a trip to
third base on a rare fielding
error. He would have scored
when Upton drilled a shot
down the third base line,
but Freeport's Ryder New-
man made a spectacular
play, leaping to snatch the
ball from the air. Freeport
got a second out on a pop-
up from Prescott, but that's
when the situation made a
turn for the worse.
Todd Laney smashed the
ball down the third base line
just inside fair territory for
a triple, which scored James
and Upton. A passed ball at
home plate enabled Laney
to make it a 3-0 game. Back-
to-back doubles from Chan-
dler Burgess and Connor
Weekes resulted in a pair of
runs as Burgess and cour-
tesy runner Coltin Williams
scored to make it 5-0 in Jay's
favor.
Prescott gave up two hits
to Chase Caswell and Caleb
McCormick in Freeport's
next at-bat but a quick se-
ries of outs on fly balls and
a timely K to retire the side
staved off a comeback at-
tempt from theBulldogs.
Freeport replaced Woo-
dard on the mound with
Darian Fannin in the bot-
tom of the sixth. He walked
James, who stole his way
to second on a fielding er-
ror, the first of two in the
inning. Fannin then gave
up two'doubles and a single
all in a row, which.resulted
in four earned runs for the
Royals with just one out on
the board. Burgess then sin-
gled but made it all the way
to home plate on a string of
passed balls when Connor
Weekes put one into shallow
right field. With Burgess
crossing the plate Jay had
enough for a 10-run advan-
tage, good enough to end the
game early.
Prescott picked up the
win for the Royals, post-
ing five strikeouts and five
hits in the course of pitch-
ing the complete game. He
was also 1-for-3 at the plate.
Freeport's Woodard, on the
other hand, gave up seven
hits, walked two batters
and struck out five. Jay got
four hits and a walk during
Fannin's one inning at the
mound.
Jay had three players in
Burgess, Laney and Vaughn
post 2-for-4 performances at
the plate, but it was James'
two timely singles in two
appearances that took top
batting honors in the game.
Freeport had a similar 2-for-


2 hitter in Newman, while
Myrick, Caswell and Mc-
Cormick were 1-for-3, 1-for-
3, and 1-for-2, respectively.
Freeport got to the semi-
final round after defeating
Chipley 3-0 on April 23 in
Bonifay on a windy, chilly
night for that late in the
month.

Senior Collin Myrick
seemed to be unaffected by
the cold conditions as he al-
lowed only one hit in seven.
innings of work in his final
start of his career for the
Bulldogs.
Myrick used 100 pitches
to complete the game as he
struck out seven batters,
including the Tigers' Zach
McDaniel for the final out of
the game.
Freeport took a 1-0 lead
in the bottom of the first
inning as Austin Woodard
walked, moved over on a
single by Myrick and scored
on a wild pitch by the Chip-
ley starting pitcher.
The Bulldogs tacked on
another run in the second
inning as Nick Russell dou-
bled to start the inning and
eventually scored with the
help of a throwing error for
a 2-0 advantage.
The Bulldogs plated their
final run of the night in the
fifth inning as Noah Sim-
mons reached on an error,
moved to third on a balk and
scored on Adam Reddick's
single for a 3-0 lead.
Myrick cruised along un-
til the fifth inning when an
error and a walk put a pair
of runners on base but the
crafty senior settled down
and struck out Jordail Finch
and Damon Walters to end
the scoring threat.
Chipley had four errors,
a wild pitch and a balk that
contributed to the Bulldogs
scoring opportunities while
the Tigers left five runners
on base as they could not
solve Myrick on the mound.
The loss saw Chipley's
season come to an end at
6-17.
Team Notes: Freeport
finished the season at 9-12
with seniors Collin Myrick,
Austin Woodard, Adam Red-
dick and Caleb McCormick
playing their last games of
their careers in the event.
Freeport never found their
hitting stroke in 2012 and
was limited to three hits
against Chipley and five
against Jay. Holmes County
won the District 2, Class A
tournament title on Thurs-
day night with an 8-5 vic-
tory over Jay.

Scientist provides


update on oil spill


research


By DOTTY NIST
"As a scientist, I don't
think I can ever say that
we can rest easy," scientist
Richard Snyder's told com-
munity members as he ad-
dressed them two years af-
ter the Deepwater Horizon
oil spill.
Snyder, a professor with
the University of 'West
Florida's Center for Envi-
ronmental Diagnostics and
Bioremediation, was fea-
tured speaker at the South
Walton Community Council
(SWCC) community forum
on April 25 at the Coastal
Branch Library.
Snyder was one of the first
scientists to begin research
and monitoring on North-
west Florida beaches in re-
sponse to the massive April
2010 oil spill. In May 2010
he became a lead researcher
for the Oil Spill Academic
Task Force, which was es-
tablished as a partnership
of 15 Florida universities.
There was much in Sny-
der's presentation to be op-
timistic about. In his judg-
ment the Florida Panhandle
got relatively little impact
from the oil spill other than
the economic impact, al-
though he admitted that
tarballs remain in the area.
More of those are seen when
there are disturbances to
the gulf such as storms, he
said.
Even samplings done in


the area of the spill show
that its remnants and the
chemicals associated with
it are "pretty much gone,".
Snyder reported. "The bac-
teria has. cleared them all
up," he said.
He explained that there
is a long history of oil in the
Gulf of Mexico due to the
hundreds of natural oil seeps
its floor---and that natural
oil slicks are not uncommon.
They are consumed by nat-
urally-occurring microbes
that live in the gulf.
However, Snyder ex-
plained, an oil spill of the
magnitude of the Deepwa-
ter Horizon spill "overloads
the system."
Snyder said the Corexit
dispersant that was used
in response to the oil spill
is also gone. The dispersant
was sodium doctyl suflosuc-
cinate, the same chemical as
Dulcolax, a stool softener, he
noted. While there are ad-
vantages and disadvantages
to the use of dispersant in
connection with an oil spill,
there was no good choice to
be made with such a large
spill, Snyder commented.
He said that, while the
dispersant broke the oil
down into droplets to help
the naturally-occurring mol-
ecules digest it more easily
and also helped keep oil from
coming onshore, the Corexit

Hearings held on Harris v.


Walton County lawsuits


By DOTTY NIST
An hour's worth of argu-
ments were heard on April
30 in the matter of Suzanne
Harris' legal challenge re-
sulting from Walton Coun-
ty's 2010 purchase of prop-
erty on Chat Holley Road.
Count II of the lawsuit,
which had alleged violation
of the Sunshine Law in con-
nection with the purchase,
has now been dropped by
Harris. However, the two
other counts remain, one
of which alleges that the
retention of local attorney
George Ralph Miller, the
special counsel who oversaw
the purchase, violated the
Sunshine Law due to not
being authorized in public
session. The other count al-
leges violation of state stat-
ute requiring disclosure of
the owners of property prior
to its sale to a local govern-
ment.
Walton County has filed
a motion to dismiss Harris'
second amended complaint
and to strike portions of
the lawsuit that the county
maintains to be "imperti-
nent or immaterial." Much


of the contested portions re-
late to Count II, which is not
included in Harris' lawsuit
in its current form.
With Walton County
Circuit Judge W. Howard
LaPorte presiding, attorney
Bill Warner argued on be-
half of Walton County that
approval of Miller's reten-
tion could have legally tak-
en place in a number of dif-
ferent forms other than in
public session of the county
commission. He also main-
tained that Walton County
did have advance knowl-
edge of the identity of the
members of the company
that sold the Chat Holley
property to the county.
Harris' attorney, State
Representative Matt Gaetz,
countered that there had
been no approval of Miller's
retention "in the Sunshine."
He maintained that the Sun-
shine Law would necessarily
have applied to the county's
approval of a contract with
the attorney. Gaetz warned
that, if the court did not find
a violation in this matter,
it would 'be the first court
in the state to authorize a


government entering into a
contract without public ap-
proval.
"Accepting these argu-
ments is so dangerous..."
Gaetz' emphasized, "this
court should not be complic-
it in these arguments."
With allotted time
elapsed, a continuation of
the hearing was scheduled
for 9 a.m on May 11 in the
Walton County Courthouse
LaPorte also indicated
that he would hold a hear-
ing in a related lawsuit,
Suzanne Harris v. George
Ralph Miller, at 10 a.m.,
also on May 11 in the county
courthouse. In that matter,
Harris had sued to compel
Miller to deliver records
related to the Chat Holley
transaction. -The court had
directed Miller to deliver
the materials and pay Har-
ris' attorney fees. The May
11 hearing is to be an evi-
dentiary one regarding Har-
ris' fees and costs.
Later on April 30, Walton
County I Circuit Judge Da-
vid Green heard a motion to

Board approves setback


reduction, tables Judkins item


By DOTTY NIST
A front setback reduction
has been approved for a pro-
posed home in Inlet Beach.
The variance was ap-
proved by the Walton Coun-
ty Zoning Board of Adjust-
ments (ZBA) at the board's
April 26 regular meeting,
which was held at the South
Walton Courthouse Annex.
The approved variance
was for the reduction of the
front setback on the beach-
front home from 20 feet to
10 feet. The property is at
186 Pompano Street in Inlet
Beach
Representing property
owner Randolph Waesche,
engineer Ong Shin ex-
plained that the beach adja-
cent to the home has expe-
rienced erosion and that the
state Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP)


had required the property
owner to bring in sand to
create a dune. He told the
board members that DEP
had requested that the pro-
posed home be constructed
as far landward as pos-
sible. Shin added that the
DEP Coastal Construction
Control Line permit for the
home was pending, await-
ing the county's approval of
the variance.
Neighbors of the property
expressed concerns with
the variance, including pos-
sible problems with park-
ing and with construction
disturbance to people rent-
ing in the vicinity during
tourist season. They also
feared damage to adjoining
property from piles being
installed in connection with
the construction, which is to
be three stories.


Shin responded that con-
struction would likely not
start until the end of the
tourist season. He said engi-
neers would be monitoring
pile placement and would
order work to stop if any,
damage to neighboring lots
became a threat.
While the design of the
home had not been com-
pleted, plans were for the
bottom story to be 1,400
square feet and the second
and third stories 900 square
feet apiece.
There was a suggestion
from board members for the
size of the home to be re-
duced in order to avoid the
need for a variance. How-
ever other board members
maintained that reducing
the size of the first story

A WILDFIRE IN SEACREST threatened 10 area homes.


From Brian Goddin,

Florida Supreme Court declares revised redistricting plan to be valid


By BRUCE COLLIER
The Florida Supreme
Court has declared the re-
vised state Senate Joint
Resolution apportioning
Florida's Senate districts to
be constitutionally valid. In
Re: Senate Joint Resolution
of Legislative Apportion-
ment 2-B, No. SC12-460,
dated April 27, concludes
the second phase of the
state's constitutionally man-
dated decennial legislative
apportionment process. The
court's opinion, 57 pages in
length, includes the hold-
ing opinion (33 pages), a
17-page concurring opinion,
and a five-page partial dis-
sent.

The court's review is re-
quired by the constitution.
and the case was originally
decided on March 9, 201.2.
In that decision, the court
declared the original Senate
plan to be invalid and direct-


ed the Legislature to adopt
a new resolution "conform-
ing to the judgment of the
supreme court." The House
plan, reviewed by the court
at the same time, was deter-
mined to be constitutionally
valid and was not before the
court this time.
A special legislative ses-
sion was convened and the
Senate revision was ad-
opted March 27. The court
was once again petitioned
to make a determination of
validity on the revision. In
reaching its decision, the
court took under advise-
ment briefs in opposition
submitted by the League
of Women Voters of Flori-
da, the National Council of
La Raza, Common Cause,
Florida, Florida Democrat-
ic Party, and the Florida
State Conference of NAACP
Branches. Comments were
also filed by the City of
Lakeland, Florida State As-


sociation of Supervisors of
Elections, and the Secretary
of State. Two of these par-
ties submitted alternative
plans of their own, which
the court considered.
Standards governing
legislative apportionment
in Florida's districts were
"greatly expanded" (per
the court) following voter
approval of Amendment
5 (Fair Districts Amend-
ment) in 2010 (the amend-
ment has been codified in
the Florida constitution as
.Article III, section 21). The
purpose, of the amendment,
said the court, is to "require
the Legislature to redistrict
in a manner that prohibits
favoritism or discrimina-
tion, while respecting geo-
graphic, considerations...."
Districts are to follow "exist-
ing community lines so that
districts are logically drawn,
and bizarrely-shaped dis-
tricts...are avoided."

erpl@aol.com, or call the
American Cancer Society at
1-800-227-2345.


The new standards re-
quire a two-tiered set of re-
quirements, with three nec-
essary elements in each tier.
Prohibited are (1) drawing
districts with the intent to
"favor or disfavor" a political
party or incumbent, or (2)
to deny or abridge racial or
language minorities' oppor-
tunities to participate in the
political process or diminish
their ability to elect candi-
dates of their choice; also,
(3) districts must consist of
contiguous territory. Dis-
tricts must, as far as practi-
cable, (4) be nearly equal in
population, (5) be compact,
and (6) use "existing politi-
cal and geographical bound-
aries."
The revision of the inval-
id plan redrew eight invalid
districts 1, 3, 6, 9, 10, 29,
30 and 34. As a result of this
redrawing, the boundaries
of "multiple other districts"
were changed, affecting 26
of the original 40 Senate
districts. The state's 40 Sen-
"ate districts were renum-
bered, adopting a random
lottery method. The City
of Lakeland's request to be
kept wholly in one Senate
district was granted.

In rejecting the challenges
made by the various parties
opposing, the court made a
distinction between "ensur-
ing compliance with consti-
tutional requirements" and


"select[ing] the best plan."
The latter, said the court,
was not its duty.
The court rejected a claim
by the NAACP that there
was a risk of diminished
ability of minority voters in
several districts as simply
speculation. The court also
rejected several other chal-
lenges made, holding that
they were barred because
they could have been made
in the prior proceeding, but
were not.
On the issue of Districts
1 and 3 (now redrawn 1 and
2), the court had previously
invalidated them. The Leg-
islature had drawn them
to create one rural and one
coastal district, which the
court held violated the re-
quirements of compactness
and the use of existing polit-
ical and geographical lines.
The redrawn districts fol-
lowed municipal and county
boundaries. There was no
challenge to that revision.
The opinion also addresses
in detail individual district
challenges in other parts of
the state.
In its conclusion, the court
held that "the opponents
have failed to demonstrate
that the revised Senate plan
as a whole or with respect
to any individual district
violated Florida's constitu-
tional requirements."
The concurrence made
two comments, on time and
on the reapportionment pro-


cess itself. The concurrence
characterized the time lim-
its in which the Legisla-
ture must make its appor-
tionment plans (following
the census) and the court
must review them for con-
stitutionality as "limited,"
adding "time is not on our
side" in making a "mean-
ingful review." The concur-
rence urged the Legislature,
in 2018, to consider adopt-
ing a longer time frame for
a "more orderly approach."
Considering the process
of reviewing and making
reapportionment, the con-
currence suggests "that
changes must be made to
the process to ensure that
the purpose of the [Fair Dis-
tricts] amendment to take
politics out of the apportion-
ment equation can be fully
realized." The concurrence
also suggests that there be
a serious examination of
adopting "an independent
apportionment commission
to oversee this inherently
political task." Other states
have adopted such a sys-
tem, and the idea has been
advanced in Florida in the
past as well.
The concurrence ends
with a discussion of the dif-
ficulty of determining "im-
permissible intent" in ap-
portionment plans.

The court's ruling states
that "no motion for rehear-
ing shall be entertained."

Pamela C. Marsh, Unit-
ed States Attorney for the
Northern District of Flor-
ida, announced last week
that Scott F. Smith, 48, of
Patchogue, N.Y., Paula N.
Smith, 43, of Patchogue,
N.Y., and Jonathon "David"
Sanders, 50, of Santa Rosa
Beach, Fla., were convicted
by a federal jury of bank
fraud and conspiracy to
commit money laundering
as part of a mortgage fraud
scheme on Friday, April 20,
2012. This case was investi-
gated by the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
and the State of Florida Of-
fice of Financial Regulation-
Bureau of Financial Investi-
gations.
During the trial, the evi-
dence established that Scott
Smith and Paula Smith al-
lowed Paula Smith's broth-
er, Louis R. Mazzella, 41, of
Holbrook, N.Y., to purchase
two homes in Scott Smith's
name in Santa Rosa Beach
and three townhomes in
Paula Smith's name in Tem-
ple Terrace, Fla. The prop-
erties in Santa Rosa Beach
were located on May Drive
and Cherry Laurel Drive.
For the two Santa Rosa
Beach properties, mortgage
loans were fraudulently
obtained from Washington
Mutual (WAMU) for $1.3
million for the May Drive
home and CitiMortgage for
$1 million for the Cherry
Laurel Drive home.
In 2005, Sanders, a gen-
eral contractor and owner
of Seagrove Builders Inc.
obtained a loan for more
than $1.2 million from cash
out refinance of two existing


mortgage loans on his May
Drive home. In late 2007,
Sanders was in default by
more than $35,000. Fac-
ing foreclosure, Sanders en-
tered into a contract to sell
his home to Scott Smith for
a sales price of $1.862 mil-
lion. A mortgage loan for
$1.3 million was fraudu-
lently obtained from WAMU
for Scott Smith to purchase
the May Drive home from
Sanders. However, instead
of paying off his loan, Sand-
ers caused the money to be
diverted to entities and indi-
viduals other than his mort-
gage lender. Thereafter,
a series of financial trans-
actions occurred, which
resulted in Scott Smith,
Paula Smith and Sanders
profiting. As a result of the
conspiracy, Scott and Paula
Smith made at least ap-
proximately $85,657, in six
months. The evidence fur-
ther showed that Sanders
received $100,000 following
a series of financial trans-
actions and as a result his
mortgage was never paid.
Scott Smith was convict-
ed of all four counts charged
'against him in the Indict-
ment which included: Count
One conspiracy to commit
bank and mail fraud; Count
Two bank fraud; Count
Three mail fraud; and,
Count Four conspiracy to
commit money laundering.
Paula Sriiith was convicted
of both charges contained in
the Indictment against her,
which included: Count One
- conspiracy to commit bank
and mail fraud; and, Count
Four conspiracy to commit
money laundering. Sand-


ers was convicted of the fol-
lowing: Count Two bank
fraud; and, Count Four -
conspiracy to commit money
laundering.
The penalties for each
count include the following:
Count One up to 30 years
in prison; Count Two up
to 30 years in prison; Count
Three up to 20 years in
prison; and, Count Four
- up to 20 years in prison.
The three are scheduled to
be sentenced by Senior U.S.
District Judge Lacey A. Col-
lier on July 10, 2012 at 10:30
am. The remaining codefen-
dant, Mazella, pled guilty to
all four counts of the indict-
ment and will be sentenced
by Senior Judge Collier on
June 12, 2012.

This prosecution is part
of this office's continuing
commitment to combat
mortgage fraud. Approxi-
mately a year ago, a num-
ber of prosecutions were
announced as part of Op-
eration Stolen Dreams, a
sweep that targeted mort-
gage fraud throughout the
country and was the largest
collective enforcement effort
ever brought to bear in con-
fronting the problem. The
operation was organized by
the Mortgage Fraud Work-
ing Group of President's Fi-
nancial Fraud Enforcement
Task Force, which was es-
tablished to lead an aggres-
sive, coordinated effort to
investigate and prosecute
financial crimes.

This case was prosecuted
by Assistant United States
Attorney Tiffany H. Eggers.

example of an outstand-

agency-in this case, the
South Walton Fire District.
The cause of the wild-
fire was determined to be

stance," a cigarette or pos-
sibly cigarettes, tossed into

the area where the fire be-
gan.


also killed off a "huge chunk"
of the plankton that is food
for many marine organisms.
However, he said, plankton
has the ability to rebound.
Polycyclic aromatic hy-
drocarbons (PAHs), which
are found in oil, have been
one of the toxins that sci-
entists have been most con-
cerned about in the gulf as a
result of the oil spill. Snyder
said that testing in north-
west Florida in the fall after
the spill found only parts
per billion of the substance
in water and sand. Howev-
er, in coquina clam tissue,
PAHs were found at a level
of 100-fold of the four parts
per billion found in the sand,
he said.
The scientists are con-
tinuing to monitor the co-
quinas, he said, due to the
clams being a very sensitive
indicator of PAHs.
A big challenge, Snyder
explained, is that the gulf
has not been studied well
and no background data ex-
ists with which-to compare
the findings. "Up to now, we
haven't ,been. able to get the
monitoring here that is rou-
tine all over the world," he
said.

Further research and
monitoring will reveal, he
noted, whether the PAH
values found in the coquinas
will "bound around" or drop
off. In the absence of back-

Harris v. Walton County
lawsuit, one alleging con-
tempt of his court order that
several years ago had di-.
rected Walton County com-

official county email account
in conducting official busi-
ness.
A group of Driftwood
Estates homeowners had
filed a motion to intervene


which, if approved, would
have given them the status
of subordinate parties in the
lawsuit.
The homeowners have
been engaged in a sepa-
rate lawsuit against Wal-
ton County and have filed
requests for public records,
including commissioners'
email records.
After hearing arguments
from the homeowners' at-


torney, Shawn Heath, and
from Walton County's legal
representation Tim and Bill
Warner, Green ruled against
the motion. His opinion was
that the potential interve-
nors had not demonstrated
sufficient evidence to sup-
port their standing to par-
ticipate in the litigation.
A hearing on the con-
tempt lawsuit is scheduled
for June 12..


ground data, Snyder com-
mented, the best that can be
done may be to establish a
baseline.
Snyder said previously
even -information on what
drives the gulfs fisheries
has been lacking. Scientists
are now looking at what fish
may now be missing, al-
though it is difficult to sub-
stantiate cause and effect in
these instances, he revealed.
What the long-term impacts
of the spill will be on marine
life is still to be determined,
he said.
Now that attention is on
the gulf as a result of the oil
spill, the problem of the area
being poorly studied is being
corrected, Snyder said.
"Understanding the sys-
tem I think is the big gain,"
he told attendees.
While emphasizing that
his research is independent
of BP, Snyder noted that BP
has committed $500 million
for research in connection
with the oil spill. This year
a portion of those funds are
being advanced for research
on the marine food,chain,.hhe
noted..
From $5 billion to $15 bil-
lion in fines is expected to be
due from BP in connection
with the Clean Water Act,
Synder continued, depend-
ing on whether negligence,
is proved with regard to the
spill. Normally these funds
would go into the general


fund, but there is an effort
in the U.S. Congress to di-
rect most of them to the gulf
coast region.
Snyder expressed concern
about the use of the funds
if this does happen. It was
his hope that they would
be placed in an endowment,
which would make them
available in perpetuity.
In response to a question,
Snyder commented that the
lesions and other abnormal-
ities seen in fish soon after
the oil spill are not being
observed at this time. In re-
sponse to another question,
he said he enjoys eating fish
and other seafood often.
Vertebrates deal well
with any PAHs in their
food, he noted, as these sub-
stances are processed by the
liver.
Asked about an increase
in dolphin deaths, Snyder
said scientists are confident
that there is an oil spill con-
nection with these incidenc-
es, since they are occurring
with dolphins that would
have been born near the
time of the., oil spill_ How-.
ever,: he .said,,,itwill still, be
difficult to prove in legal ac-'
tion against BP that such a
connection exists.

By Jim Saunders,
The News Service of Florida
A Leon County circuit
judge has sided with the
online-travel industry in a
long-running legal battle
about whether companies
such as Expedia and Orbitz
owe disputed county hotel
taxes.
Judge James Shelfer
ruled in favor of the indus-
try last week, going against
17 counties that argue they
have improperly lost out on
millions of dollars in tourist-
development taxes. Shelter
announced the decision
during a hearing, though a
written order has not been
issued.
Orbitz lead attorney Beth
Herrington said Monday
that Shelfer found the on-
line-travel companies were
not obligated to collect and
pass along the disputed tax-
es. She said a written order
will follow.
"The case is over," said
Herrington, who argued on
behalf of the industry at
the Thursday hearing. "The
judgment is in our favor."
Roberto Martinez, an at-
torney for the counties, could
not be reached for comment.
It was not clear whether
the counties would appeal
the ruling --- or what effect
it might have on a similar
pending case filed by Bro-
ward County.
The ruling oomes after


years of litigation and legis-
lative debate about the tax
issue, which involves a key
part of the way the popular
online-travel sites do busi-
ness. The counties that have
been involved in the lawsuit
are Alachua, Charlotte, Es-
cambia, Flagler, Hillsbor-
ough, Lee, Leon, Manatee,
Nassau, Okaloosa, Pasco,
Pinellas, Polk, St. Johns,
Seminole, Wakulla and Wal-
ton.
Online-travel companies,
which serve as middlemen
between hotels and travel-
ers, charge customers for
room rentals and fees re-
lated to providing the ser-
vice. The core question- in
the lawsuits comes down to
this: Should county tourist-
development taxes apply to
the total cost? Or only to the
portion that go for the room
rentals?
The industry and its sup-
porters argue that trying
to impose tax on the fees
would amount to a services
tax, which is not allowed in
Florida.
"The record conclusively
establishes that (online
travel companies) provide
online travel-related servic-
es and do not engage in the
activity that is subject to the
(tourist development tax):
renting, leasing or, letting
hotel accommodations in
the plaintiffs' counties," the
industry said in a February


court document that helped
set the stage for last week's
ruling.
But counties say the tax
should apply to the total
price that travelers pay for
rooms and that the online-
travel companies are in-
volved in renting rooms.
In the lawsuit, the coun-
ties said customers "pay de-
fendants (the online-travel
companies) directly for the
lease or rental of the hotel
rooms. After the customer's
credit card is charged, de-
fendants inform the selected
hotel, of the transaction. At
check-in, the customer pro-
vides the hotel with identi-
fication and receives access
to the room leased or rented
from or through the defen-
dants."
The case decided last
week and the similar Bro-
ward County case, which is
before another Leon County
circuit judge, were initially
filed in 2009. While they
have been pending, lawmak-
ers have considered propos-
als to change state law to
make clear that the online-
travel companies don't owe
the disputed taxes.
But those proposals have
died, with the most-recent
bills not getting heard dur-
ing this year's legislative
session.
[A lawyer for the 17 coun-
ties said they intended to
appeal.]

and Melanie Morris. Some
of these artists have been
exhibiting at the markets
for more than a decade, and
continue to evolve as arti-
sans.
But at each market,
there are more new art-
ists that sign up to exhibit.
This year, of the 50 monthly
artists showing, some new
faces will include photogra-
phy by Chandler Williams,
paintings by Donna Radcliff
and Lisa Hinds, blown glass
by Mike Price; and many
more new faces that will be
taking part in the monthly
markets.
Over the past 15 years,
more than 1,000 artists
from all over the world have
come to Rosemary Beach, to
either start a career in art,
or to see if they would even
sell. Many that have made
their way to the West In-


dies Markets over the past
several years say that this
is the only art show that
they participate in, due to
the fact that the events are
held in the summer heat of
Florida. Even so, because
of the sales, it is well worth
the sweat.
The West Indies Market
has become. a staple in the
artists and art enthusiasts
world. Interior designers,
art dealers, gallery owners,
and buyers from national
retail shops have also made
markets, "the" place to find
the latest in art, and the lat-
est artists on the scene.
Throughout the day, en-
tertainment is provided, and
demonstrations are conduct-
ed by participating vendors.
Some of the live demonstra-
tions at this year's market
include glass blowing, art.
techniques, hand carving,
jewelry-making, and pottery


being thrown on the wheel.
For years the West Indies
Market has stood alone,
and attracted thousands
throughout its history. But
this year, a new feature is
being added to the market
that will draw a whole new
crowd that not only appreci-
ates art, but who wants to
purchase the freshest fruits
and vegetables on 30A.
The Rosemary Beach
Farmers Market will make
its debut on Sunday, May
13, from 11 a.m. 5 p.m. on
South Barrett Square. The
farmers market will take
place on the Sunday of the
weekend market.
Fruits, vegetables, organic
dairy products, eggs, tropi-
cal plants, honey and honey
products, and many other
locally grown and organic
items will be for sale by lo-
cal and regional growers.
Rosemary Beach and the
West Indies Markets once
had local growers that came
from around the Panhandle,
back in the earlier part of
the decade. But between
2000 and 2002, they seemed
to fade out, and more and
more fine art was presented
each year.
Fresh and organic pro-
duce has once again become
a hot commodity, and tour-
ists, as well as locals, are
craving healthier products
that are not grown with any
kind of enhancing chemicals.
This was one of the biggest
reasons that the merchants
and those who lihv6and visit
the Rosemary Beach prop-
erty want to revive the mar-


ket.
Several markets have
started all along the Flori-
da Emerald Coast, and not
only do they offer the pub-
lic alternatives in healthy
fruits and vegetables, they
provide an economic boost
for local growers as well. In
farmers markets through-
out the United States and
the world, the gathering
of local growers, those who
trade and others who sell
their goods, continues a tra-
dition that has been in exis-
tence since the beginning of
civilization.
It was not only the sight
of fresh vegetables and
fruits, accompanied with
the bright colors of local arts
and crafts, textiles and flow-


ers, that attracted hundreds
thousands to world markets
throughout history; it was
also the smells of food cook-
ing, bread baking, and even
the smell of livestock ,being
sold or traded. Minus the
livestock, Rosemary Beach
and Hilltop Productions
are recreating that same-
feel for visitors and locals,
that the markets of Aix en
Provence, France; Istanbul,
Turkey, and other Euro-
pean countries have offered
to millions, for thousands of
years.
Local growers and farm-
ers that grow fruits and veg-
etables, (traditional, or or-
ganic), those who have fresh
dairy products, and any oth-
er type of farm-raised prod-


ucts, that are interested
in selling at the Rosemary
Beach Farmer's Market, are
encouraged to call Hilltop
Productions at 951-2148.
Those artists/crafters, who
are also interested in exhib-
iting fine arts, or crafts they
have created themselves,
are also encouraged to apply
for the West Indies Market,
and can do so by logging on
to www.hilltopproduction-
sinc.com.
The May 12 and 13 West
Indies Market and the May
13 Farmer's Market, are
sold out, but applications
are still being accepted for
both the June 9 and 10 and
July 14 and 15, West Indies
Market and Farmer's Mar-
ket.


AS IN THE MARKETS OF FRANCE, fresh seafood, pro-
duce, textiles and many other items have been sold and bar-
tered for in city squares for centuries. Rosemary Beach is
bringing their own version of the city markets back to their
town square, with the first of three Rosemary Beach Farmers
Markets, taking place May 13, from 11 a.m. 5 p.m. on the
South Barrett Square. For more information, call Hilltop
Productions at 951-2148, or Rosemary Beach at 231-7388.

Walton County Housing Needs

Community Help for 10 Homeless Vets


The Walton County Hous-
ing Agency has learned that
it has received approval to
house 10 homeless veterans.
These veterans are being
sent to the agency from the
Veterans Administration.
These veterans will not
own furniture, will not be
able to pay for housing de-
posits, and utility deposits.
The Walton County Hous-


ing Agency will provide the
majority of funding for the
home in which they will
live.
Funding assistance from
the community for furniture
and clothing for these indi-
viduals is needed.
The Walton County Hous-
ing Agency has dedicated an
employee, Mary Randolph,
to work with this program.


She may be reached at 892-
8185. Leave a message and
your call will be returned.
Information is still not
available on the full details
of this effort to house the
veterans. Call if you have
questions. A bank of infor-
mation on individuals and
organizations that may be
able to provide assistance
will be compiled.
