WCEDA board gets


funding report for


business startups


By BEN GRAFTON
At its meeting of May 3,
Rick Harper, PhD Direc-
tor of The University of
West Florida's (UWF) Office
of Economic Development
and Engagement (OEDE)
gave the Walton County
Economic Development Al-
liance (WCEDA) Board a
status review of OEDE's
work on behalf of Walton
County. OEDE is charged
with administering a $10
million per year fund over
the next three years to cre-
ate jobs in eight Northwest
Florida counties. Under this
program an effort is being
made to identify and pro-
vide financial startup assis-
tance for businesses. Walton
County is at the forefront of
this program.
Harper reported that this
job creation program is an
innovative approach in that
it seeks smaller businesses
with potential for growth
and it can provide.the finan-
cial help up front. The good
news is that fund awards
will be made in the near
future and the bad news is
that because of its newness,
state agencies which must
release funding for these
projects are creating frus-
tration among the clients
and the development agen-
cies because they are mov-
ing ahead so slowly.
Harper told the Board
that Director Scarlett Pha-
neuf identifies good prospec-
tive businesses for consid-
eration and that there are
two, possibly three, WCEDA
projects moving through the
system which, it is hoped,
will be approved in the near
future.
Cliff Knauer of Preble-
Rish Engineering reviewed
the status of the Mossy
Head Industrial Park work


for the board. He believes
the property is in a "fantas-
tic location." It has ready
access to U.S. 90, Interstate
10 and SR-285 and it has
potential access to rail ser-
vice. Storm water permits
have recently been received
for some sectors. The cost
estimate for storm water
and roads projects is $1.425
million. Bids have been re-
quested for water and sewer
facilities which are expected
to be operational by January
or February. These sectors
could be developed first and
the revenue from marketing
them could be used to help
finance infrastructure for
additional parcels.
Knauer commented that
the sewer availability is a
little complicated. Small
sewer plants are installed
at Mossy Head Elemental
School and at the Dixie RV
plant, The combined capac-
ity of these two units is in
the range of 32 to 35 thou-
sand gallons per day. Of this
only 6 to 7 thousand gallons
per day are being used so
the balance is available for
new development. A master
sewage plant could -be pro-
vided in the future when to-
tal sewage demand nears 40
thousand gallons per day.
Knauer recommended
that the Industrial Park vi-
sion be revised to reflect cur-
rent goals and market con-
ditions.
The board discussed the
unresolved issue of what
to do about accessing elec-
tronic drawing files in the
offices of Goodwyn, Mills
and Cawood, Inc. To get the
files WCEDA would have to
execute a "hold harmless"
agreement with the firm. It
was decided that since the
engineering \work in these
files will have to be redone


in any event, the work will
be transferred to Preble-
Rish and no further no fur-
ther effort will be made to
obtain the files from Good-
wyn, Mills and Cawood.
A discussion was also
held about the justification
for having an article about
economic development op-
portunities in Walton Coun-
ty published by Rowland
Publishing, Inc. The points
were made that costs have
not been clearly defined by
Rowland and distribution
of the publication would
be only to the counties of
northwest Florida which
are already cooperating to
bring development benefits
and jobs to the whole area.
In effect it was said that go-
ing ahead with the article
would be, "...like preaching
to the choir," and that the
money required could be
better spent elsewhere. The
board agreed to discontinue
the project with Rowland.
Phaneuf presented a
summary report of activities
for the period from March 1
to May 3. These included
participation in economic
development meetings with
legislative groups in Wash-
ington, D.C. and with state,
business and industry con-
sultants in Atlanta, Ga.;
Dallas, Texas; and Havana,
Fla.
Phaneuf also reported:
Project Beer and Project
Tersus, which are pend-
ing developments for Wal-
ton County, are awaiting
contract finalization from
OEDE; communications
have been opened for a po-
tential site location in Pax-
ton for a dollar retail store;
and a date has been set for
a groundbreaking by South-
ern Wines and Spirits in the
Freeport Industrial Park.

Friday Breakfast


By BEN GRAFTON
The Walton Area Cham-
ber of Commerce held its
First Friday Breakfast on
May 4 in the Lake Club
House at Hammock Bay,
where members in atten-
dance heard from three
speakers who discussed sub-
jects of interest to residents
of Walton County.
The first of the speakers
was Jenni Perkins, Develop-
ment Manager for Covenant
Hospice, which offers hos-
pice services to terminally
ill patients and their fami-
lies in Northwest -Florida
and South Alabama. She'
pointed out that Covenant
Hospice is widely recognized
as a not-for-profit charitable
organization with offices
in Crestview and Niceville
that serves more than 1,200


patients daily. Perkins then
presented a short video
about the services that hos-
pice offers and the parts
that volunteers play. She
also pointed out that hos-
pice patients are eligible for
Medicare benefits and that
Covenant Hospice also of-
fers its services to many in-
digents as well.
The second speaker was
Joe Wyatt, Crystal Beach
and Hammock Bay natu-
ralist, who oversees pro-
grams in effect td protect
and benefit wildlife and the
environment in these loca-
tions. The work covers 3,500
acres in the communities of
which about 2,500 acres are
in conservation manage-
ment. To do this the veg-

WCSB meets, discusses terminology


used in evaluating teacher performance


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB) met
in its regular session May
8 at 9 a.m. The board's
Chairman, Dennis Wal-
lace, opened the meeting
and Vice-chairperson Faye
Leddon led the prayer and
pledge of allegiance, before
Wallace briefly discussed
minor changes in agenda
items. District 1 member
Mildred Wilkerson was not
present and all other board
members were present. The
board approved the agenda
before them unanimously as
well as prior minutes.
Candidate Ron Belker
for School Board District 1
told the board during pub-
lic comments, that a school
guidance counselor at Emer-
ald Coast Middle School had
been soliciting signatures
for a political campaign for
another school board candi-
date on school hours. WCSB
Superintendent Carlene An-
derson told Belker that the
issue had been brought to
her attention the night prior
and she would investigate
the charges and respond ap-


propriately.
The board moved unani-
mously to approve the con-
sent agenda items which in-
cluded personnel contracts,
annual financial reports,
curriculum and transporta-
tion requests.
The board then moved to
the action agenda portion of
meeting.
Michelle Doggett present-
ed a power point presenta-
tion on energy savings due
to the implementation of the
Energy Education Inc. Ser-
vices program from Decem-
ber 2011 to March 2012. In
total, the district has cut en-
*ergy cost by over 28 percent,
or 19 million kWhs of elec-
tricity. "None of this would
be possible without the
board, the superintendent,
the plant and facility staff,
the teachers, principals and
everyone that works within
the program," Doggett told
the board and audience.
The board moved to ap-
prove the organizational
chart recommended by An-
derson unanimously.
There were six student
expulsions on the agenda.


The board moved to approve
unanimously five of the six-
listed. One expulsion drew
discussion between mem-
bers about one student and
"mitigating" circumstances
according to Anderson. The
board then moved to ap-
prove the expulsion unani-
mously.
Anderson then recom-
mended that board member
Representative Mark Da-
vis and Citizen Appointee,
Rob Neale to serve on the
Value Adjustment Board
from Julyl through June
30, 2013. The board minus
Davis (who could not vote
on the motion) approved
the recommendation unani-
mously.
The board then discussed
the staffing allocation plan
for district schools. District
3 board member Sharon
Roberts requested informa-
tion on variations on support
staffing numbers for differ-
ent schools.' Roberts said,
"I just want to make sure
we have equity throughout
the districts." Anderson re-
sponded that some decisions
on the type of staff needed


have been made "in-house"
by principals and their
needs. Roberts made a mo-
tion to table the discussion
until Anderson and staff
could come back with more
information.
Anderson then recom-
mended to approve the in-
surance consultant contract
for 2012-2013. Roberts told
the board that she could not
in good conscience approve
a raise for a consultant
when regular staff have not
received a raise.
Anderson replied that the
consultant .had saved the
district a lot of money and
the recommendation was
based on the recommenda-
tion of the district's insur-
ance committee. The in-
crease was for $2,400 for the
year. District staff told the
board the usual cost for sur-
rounding area consultants
'varied from $45,000-54,000
per year and the consultant
had not received. a raise in
nine years and was a very
valued member and was
paid $19,200 per year. The
consultant now receives
$1,600 per month. He re-


quested $2,000 per month.
The district's insurance
committee recommended
$1,800. Anderson said that
although there had not been
step-raises, all employees
had received some type of
compensation since she had
been in office. Wallace told
the board that he has had
some dealings with the in-
surance and thought the
consultant was well worth
the compensation. Roberts
responded that she liked the
consultant, but didn't think
it was fair to raise the'com-
pensation when others had
"taken a hit." The motion to
raise the compensation for
the insurance consultant
passed with three members
approving and Roberts vot-
ing nay. I
Davis requested clari-
fication over criteria and
"subjective" terms used in
revisions for staffing evalu-
ations. Discussion ensued.
Anderson responded that
the wording and criteria was
"statutorily required." Davis
responded, "this is going to

Hon. Martha Ingle, Wal-'
ton County Clerk of Court,
announced that the Walton
County Clerk of Courts' of-
fice has successfully in-
stalled its new case mainte-
nanc.e system, CLERICUS,
this week.
The installation of this
new software is a signifi-
cant upgrade for the office,
which anticipates increased
efficiencies, better workflow
and a move toward a paper-
less office environment.
"Installing this innova-
tive software will be a huge
asset to the Clerk's office,
and will also benefit the citi-
zens of Walton County," In-
gle said. "Although our'staff
will have to get acquainted
with the new software, we
believe we will be better
equipped to serve the people
with this upgrade to CLERI-
CUS."
The new case mainte-
nance system. speeds up
many processes that were
formerly manual and now
can be automated or gener-


ated much easier. Preparing
appeals or creating ad hoc
reports are much less time
consuming with the new
software.
The comprehensive sys-
tem will also provide a
seamless connection to the
Florida Courts eFiling Por-
tal, helping to eliminate the
need for paper filings.
"It's clear that as we con-
tinue to deal with tighter
budgets and an increasing
case workload, a paperless
court system is the wave
of the future," Ingle said.
"With CLERICUS now in-
stalled, the Walton Clerk's
office will be better suited to
deal with these challenges."
CLERICUS utilizes cut-
ting edge technology and
complies with Florida Stat-
utes and both local and
statewide reporting re-
quirements. CLERICUS is
the only Florida-based case
maintenance system that is
developed for the clerks by
the clerks.

FDOT to hold meeting on


U.S. 331 multi-lane project


The Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT)
will hold a public informa-
tion meeting regarding the
design of State Road 83
(U.S. 331) from two to four
lanes starting at Edgewood
Circle and ending at SR-8
(I-10) in Walton County.
The meeting will be held
Thursday, May 10 from 5 6
p.m. CDT at the DeFuniak


Springs Community Center
.located at 361 North 10th
Street, DeFuniak Springs.
This meeting will allow citi-
zens an opportunity to pre-
view the proposed design,
ask questions, and/or sub-
mit comments concerning
the upcoming project.
The intent of the project
is to increase the vehicu-
lar capacity of the corridor.


The proposed typical section
will consist of two 12-foot
travel lanes in each direc-
tion, separated by a 40-foot
grass median, 12-foot out-
side shoulders (5-foot paved)
and 8-foot inside shoulders
(unpaved) are proposed.
, This project is not currently
funded for construction.
Public participation is
solicited without regard to


race, color, national origin,
age, sex, religion, disabil-
ity or family status. Per-
sons who require special
accommodations under the
Americans with Disabilities
Act, or persons who require
translation services (free of
charge) should contact Clay

Who



blinks



first?

By BRUCE COLLIER

At the time this is being written, voting on the sales tax
referendum is still in progress, and will be decided some-
time this evening. If the tax fails, there's still the possibil-
ity that a toll will be voted in to pay for Walton County's
contribution, without a decision by the voters.
There's reportedly a toll and revenue study by the De-
partment of Transportation underway to analyze traffic
makeup on the bridge, the economic impact of a toll, and
the possibility of discounts. At an April 17 special Walton
County Commission meeting, a DOT planner said the re-
sults of that study will not be available until fall. I'm sure
some people are hoping that's fall as in September, not No-
vember.
Assuming the sales tax fails, if I were faced with having
to decide to impose a toll, I'd like to know as much as I could
about it. In fact, I don't think I'd vote on a toll until I did
have all the facts. However, the DOT wants an answer long
before fall.
When all the available facts and all the public comment
are in, those who vote need to use their best judgment, re-
gardless of the consequences. They have to ask themselves,
do we really need to have this done now? If not now, when?
Is this really the only way to pay for it? If we dig in our
heels and say no to a toll, will someone in the state govern-
ment back down and find us the money without a toll? Or
are we going to be dropped to the end of the line?
Those who want neither tax nor toll have threatened
to vote out those commissioners who vote for a toll. Those
who favor a toll would apply the same medicine to those
who vote against a toll. It's a powerful inducement, ordi-
narily. Most, if not all, government depends on it. Unless,
of course, the ones who vote for the toll don't care whether
they get re-elected., Three county commission seats are up
for grabs. Three commissioners voting in favor, or against,
a toll is enough. If the tax fails and a toll is considered, it's
going to look like a stand-off. Who'll blink first? Who needs
to?


Editor:
Only by politically forcing our so-called police and politi-
cal potentates to uphold our U.S. Constitution that THEY
have sworn to uphold, but do not, can we stop the violent
crime and return our communities to security, sanity, and
prosperity, and we need our U.S. Constitutional Second
Amendment gun rights, with no ifs, ands, or buts (that most
police DENY us) to protect ourselves, families, and commu-
nities, otherwise we will continue to be maimed and killed
by the armed criminals that most police and their bosses
protect by unconstitutionally disarming average citizens
on the streets who are trying to protect themselves (that's
us) and they (the police-bosses) should be prosecuted for
it, as they have betrayed us and our U.S. Constitution that
they have sworn to uphold and defend! See: (JBS.org (gun
control) and also contact Congress to Stop the U.N. Arms
Trade Treaty which Hillary Clinton supports to enable the
United Nations to confiscate the private guns of American
citizens. We must act now to stop government and City
Hall and the U.N. from taking our private firearms CON-
TACT CONGRESS!
Sincerely,
Ed Nemechek,
Landers, California


Editor,
Let's talk North and South, the bridge to a better economic
outlook- for who? Roads TDC- and about $2,000 for flower
planting grants plus the public works match. I have 75
and would like a grant for our,19 residents' mud holes. The
pavement list is too long, old, out of date and some flowers
surrounding our mud holes would look just amazing. We'll
even put in a toll and tax our tourists in the depressed com-
munity of Mossy Head.
So we're filing a' lawsuits, and it takes a state represen-
tative to sue a F1. county. I guess people think this is just
great to sue Walton Co. It is but the picture of that tax
dollar to pay for these disgraces is a shame. In Tallahassee
they have learned to immune theirselves. Here it's busi-
ness, with a local justice system that looks the other way.
First you steal the tax dollars, then pay with tax dollars to
go to court, then the winner is paid with tax dollars by a
state rep. who's getting tax dollars. What a system.
This would make a great movie on tv to watch you think.
With a title called "Sock It To Me We The People Idiots Of
Walton."
Thank You

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Editor:
The 6th Annual May Day Festival and BBQ Cook-Off
was another good day for our area. I want to thank God for
His blessings because without Him none of it would have
been possible. On behalf of the Annual May Day Festival
Committee Inc I want to send a big THANK YOU to all
of the officials and employees of Walton County, Walton
County School District, and DeFuniak Springs along with
the many volunteers who have worked hard and support-
ed us. We are proud to work with all of you and have your
support! I want to take this time to recognize the hard work
and dedication of Colin Richards of the Fla Panhandle BBQ
Society who spearheaded the BBQ Cook-Off at this year's
festival, along with Lorrieann Burton! Thank you to all the


judges for doing a great job while enjoying some delicious
barbecue!
My organization is proud to work with everyone in the
community to provide fun for our families and make De-
Funiak Springs a better place to live. I would like to extend
my sincere gratitude and appreciation to the community
again this year for making this year's event another suc-
cess. As always we will continue to work hard to make next
year's event bigger and better! Again, thanks to all you and
glory be to God!

Editor:
I received an interesting newsletter this week from con-'
gressman Jeff Miller which I had not heard anything re-
garding this in the news media. I guess they're too caught
up in the political arena. Miller stated "I hope to use this
newsletter to draw attention to National Military Appre-
ciation Month. The U.S. Senate first designated May as
National Military Appreciation Month in 1999. All too of-
ten, we fail to stop and observe the sacrifices made by our
veterans and their families.
"Where would we be without the service and sacrifice
of our soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and coastguards-
men. Those who answered the call to serve every time our
Nation faced an enemy determined to impose his will upon
our way of life, and the families who endure months and
years without their loved ones, dutifully accepting the bur-
den of service. We would not be who we are as a Nation
were it not for their sacrifices.
"Scores of men and women are returning from deploy-


ment suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) or Trau-
matic Brain Injury (TBI). By the VA's own estimates, a
veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutes, and former ser-
vice members represent one out of every five suicides in the
U.S."
There are many ways we can find to say thank you to
those who defend our Nation. There are organizations na-
tionwide who devote themselves to serving our veterans
and their families.
Thank God there are a few left in Washington who still
honor our military and veterans, as Miller stated, "where
would we be without them." I shudder to think about it.
There are many ways we can honor our military if nothing
else but by praying for them.

God Bless America

With one of its primary objectives being the promotion
of downtown DeFuniak, the DeFuniak Springs Visitors Bu-
reau was thrilled to see so much activity in downtown De-
Funiak at the Peddler's Alley on May 5. We appreciate very
much the continued enthusiastic response of folks to our
Peddler's Alley events.
For fear of inadvertently omitting someone, I will just
say a sincere collective thank you on behalf of the Bureau
to everyone who was involved. This includes the DeFuniak
Springs Police Department, WZEP 1460 Radio, DeFuniak


Springs Herald, Walton Sun, the folks who worked to or-
ganize and staff the event, the vendors who furnished the
interesting mix of goods and cooperated with timely set-ups
and take downs, the downtown businesses that cooperated
with the Bureau in support of another Peddler's Alley, Sug-
arland Bluegrass Gospel Band, and last, but not least, the
large crowd of enthusiastic shoppers. Thanks again to all
who joined us in whatever capacity on May 5.

Hwy 331 four-laning and bridge
First off I am against a tax or a toll
Do we need both Yes
Do we have to have it No.
(The south end is four lanes now and going south it moves
as soon as you get off the bridge. Now if the north end was
four laned it would move off in a hurry...Yes a four-lane
bridge would be better but it would no impeded the traffic
that much)
There is a lot of politics that is hidden qnd cannot put a
finger on...Only suppose.
Whey have our neighbors had their bridges and roads
built with out having extra financing? (This does not take
in the Mid Bay Bridge as this is a separate situation)
Why was the present bridge not four-laned when it was
built...The way I understand that the engineer that de-
signed it said it would only take a few more million to be
four land but DOT said no...Why?
Who stands the most gain from not getting it done?
Okaloosa Mid Bay Bridge would decrease in its toll col-


election with a better route to the area. Bay County...Keep
the traffic heading in their direction through the routes not
only 231 but Hwy. 77 and 79, both of which are being four
laned (Been to Vernon lately?) A lot of the traffic on 331 is
used by people going to and from Bay County
Consider that Walton County is in a split representative
district...What political power do we have?
I am a life long Republican but I do not like what the lo-
cal party is doing in support of this tax. What is behind it?
More politics...some ONE is to make a gain...
Take the politics out of it and seems to me that having to
only vote for the tax is not right as the Toll should be on it
with a Yes or No.. .If you vote against the Tax as it is now it
appears that "They" have trapped us who vote NO in that,
well we must be for the toll...Wrong, but its the way it is
being done.
Just had to Air-Out these thoughts

WCSO Emergency Management presents disaster training


Al Ford, the Emergency
Management Coordinator
for the Walton County Sher-
iffs Office (WCSO), present-
ed training on responding to
natural disasters to mem-
bers of the Walton County
Health Department. Ford
was invited to speak about
his experience working with
members of the community
,of Pass Christian, Miss.
in the wake of destruction
caused by Hurricane Ka-
trina. The Walton County
Health Department hosts
disaster training about four
times a year for the entire
staff and invites speakers
with various backgrounds
to come and speak.
Ford shared photographs
of the disaster and talked
about his experiences, as he
gave a first-hand account
during his search and recov-
ery mission while working
for the Bay County (Fla.)
Fire Rescue. In Ford's 34


years of work in fire servic-
es, he stated he could nev-
er have been prepared for
what he witnessed in Mis-
sissippi. He talked about
how diseases were rampant
and the challenges of treat-
ing victims of the disaster.
Ford stressed to the Health
Department staff how fortu-
nate this area was in regard
to other areas of the nation
and how very close we came
to the same fate of Missis-
sippi.
. This was the first time
Ford has spoken publically
about his experience seven
years ago. Although shar-
ing what he saw and learned
was a bit therapeutic, "Some
memories are still open
wounds. It is still difficult to
talk about," Ford said. The
sights and even smells still
haunt him to this day. He
hopes by sharing the experi-
ence he had with members
of the community, ,especial-


ly those in public service,
people will learn from the
mistakes of the past and be
prepared for the future.


Ford was hired by the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice in February 2012 as the
Emergency Management


Coordinator. He was the
battalion fire chief for Bay
County Fire Rescue and also
currently works as an ad-














Y.




r ,4


junct professor at Gulf Coast
State College and Texas A &
M, teaching Fire Standards
and Homeland Security.


WCSO EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR AL FORD presented training
on responding to natural disasters to members of the Walton County Health Department.


GRIM REMINDERS OF devastation in Mississippi from Hurricane Katrina served as
part of the recent training for Walton County Health Department personnel.

Science in Nursing (ASN)
degree during the Fall term.
Associate of Science gradu-

tury, with origins dating to
1855 when Florence Night-
ingale, the founder of mod-
ern nursing, received a spe-
cially designed brooch from
Queen Victoria. Much like
a regimental badge, the pin
was a testimony to Nightin-
gale's allegiance, character,
purpose and inspiration for
her service to soldiers dur-
ing the Crimean War. The
pin received by Nightingale
further represented the me-
dieval practice of heraldry
as a badge of identity, train-
ing and prestige in the 19th
century.

Sixth Annual May Day Festival brings in big crowds


By I-:II) i'('KER
Though numerous other
events were taking place in
l)tI.'u inik Springs on Satur-
day, MAi~ 5, the 6th Annual
May Day Festival attracted
big crowds throughout the
Id:i and into the evening.
This year's event began
i ol'Ohr 6 a.m. as contestants
from 16 teams arrived from
around the state in anticipa-
tion of the annual barbecue
eookoff and it didn't wrap
up until the last pinfall
brought an end to a full card
of New Heights Wrestling
matches. Cresview's Pov-
erty Hill Smokers took the
Grand Championship title
in the barbecue tournament
thanks to top-three finishes
in all three categories while
DeFuniak Springs' own Paul
Jordane retained his New
Heights Wrestling cham-
pionship in the main event
bout of the night. Elected of-


ficials and other dignitaries
including Superintendent
of Schools Carlene Ander-
son and representatives of
the Walton County School
Board and Board of County
Commissioners were also on
hand at the festival.
Other popular activities
introduced at this year's
festival were a balloon ani-
mal-making stilt-walker, a
softball game open to com-
petitors of all ages, various
musical acts and plenty of
food vendors. This year's
May Day Festival also
marked a change in venue,
as the event was hosted at
the Wee Care Park in De-
Funiak Springs for the first
time since its inception six
years ago.
The event, which, along
with others like it around
the state, commemorates
Emancipation Day, the
first time the Emancipation


Proclamation was publi-
cally read in Florida on May
20, 1865. May Day Festival
Chairman Marcus Bald-
win was pleased with the
turnout and conveyed, his
thanks to the community for
its continued support of the
festival.
"It's for the community,"
Baldwin said. "I want to
bring everyone together, to
build positive things, cre-
ate family events, and make
our area a better place. My
focus for the May Day Fes-
tival is not like others in the
area. I want the focus to be
on God, community and one
another."

vals, check out the Annual

WCSO responds to armed


robbery at residence


The Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) is
currently investigating an
armed robbery at 353 Cen-
tral 7th Street, Santa Rosa
Beach. According to inves-
tigators, two white males in
their late teens approached
the residence armed with a
gun and took a safe from the
home. No one was hurt dur-
ing the incident.
The victim called 911 and
deputies arrived at the
scene and set up a perim-


eter. A description of the
suspects was given out to
law enforcement and within
a short timespan, the two
suspects were located and
arrested. Travis Michael
Abadie, 18, of Destin, and
Ruben M. Lopez, 17, of San-
ta Rosa Beach, were charged
with home invasion robbery
and grand theft. Abadie
was transported to the Wal-
ton Counity Department of
Corrections. R.M.L. was
transported to the Depart-


ment of Juvenile Justice Re-
, gional Detention Center in
Crestview.
Additional arrests were
subsequently made of Ste-
phen M. Grant, 24, and Tina
S. Brand, 47, both of Santa
Rosa Beach. They were both
charged with home invasion
robbery, a first degree felo-
ny, and grand theft, a third
degree felony, after investi-
gators served a search war-
rant at Brand's residence.
The investigation is still
ongoing.

National spotlight on state gun laws


By ALICIA LEONARD

A man's home is his cas-
tle or so thought the Eng-
lish. The Castle Law,- or
Castle Doctrine comes from
English common laws estab-
lished in the late 17th cen-
tury. Sources state that the
English law was partially
drawn from biblical writ-
ings in the book of Exodus,
"If a,thief is caught breaking
in at night and is struck a
fatal blow, the defender is
not guilty of bloodshed; but
if it happens after sun-
rise, the defender is guilty
of bloodshed." Hence the
birth of separation of force,
deadly force, self-defense or
retreat. The new residents
of America brought the con-
cept of guarding one's home
and family by force or dead-
ly force if necessary over the
big pond with them. Even
though the Castle Doctrine
is not a defined law, but a
looser set of laws or princi-
pals defined by varying de-
grees in many states, the
idea is the same: deadly
force may be justified if a
person fears imminent peril
of death or serious deadly
harm to himself or another
while in the confines of his
domicile in certain states.
The reasoning scholars
point to is a person in their
home has no place to further
retreat.
With a spotlight on Flor-
ida's Stand Your Ground
law (passed in 2005) and
the media frenzy over the
Zimmerman-Martin case,
some might be surprised to
hear the beginnings of ear-
lier laws that paved the way
for Stand Your Ground. In
1985, the state of Colorado
passed a statute nicknamed
the "Make My Day Law"
which entailed protecting
the homeowner from civil
as well as criminal charges
while using force or deadly
force inside their home.
In September 2004, Hur-
ricane Ivan swept onto the
Gulf Coast leaving behind it
a ravaged northwest Florida
,territory, hundreds of thou-
sands without power, more
than a dozen people dead
and a new case for lawmak-

ers to expand the Castle
* Doctrine to their citizens. In
the early morning hours of
Nov. 3, 2004, three persons'
lives changed forever.
Retirees James and Kath-
ryn Workman had returned
from Georgia to their storm-
ravaged home outside of
Pensacola. According to oth-
er written sources, neighbors
had called the couple and
told them that others were
parking their recreational
vehicles' (RVs) across the
street from their home and
using their house's water
supply. The couple returned
and parked their own RV
in their driveway and set
about restoring their home
and protecting the prop-
erty. Rodney Cox was a
contractor from North Caro-
lina that had made the trip
south hoping to work for the
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA).
Police reports and 911 call
records show multiple com-
munications between Cox
and Escambia County depu-
ties the night the couple
and Cox had their fatal en-
counter. Records indicated
that Cox was confused and
disoriented when he spoke
with deputies and believed
that someone had tried to
break into his trailer. He
called them several times
requesting help. He admit-
ted to drinking a few beers
when deputies finally lo-
cated him and deputies saw
that he was taken to a hotel
by a friend. A few hours lat-
er, 911 operators received a
call from Kathryn, indicat-
ing that her husband had
gone outside their RV and
fired a warning shot at an
intruder asking for water
and attempting to get inside
the brick home. According
to published sources, Cox
ran from the warning shot
and into the RV followed
by James. Cox wrapped his
arms around James. While
his wife screamed and the
two men struggled, James
fired two shots, with the
seconO .bullet severing Cox's
femoral artery and Cox was
declared dead on arrival
(DOA) at the hospital.
The Workmans were
in a legal haze for the fol-
lowing three months until
the state's attorney's office
declined to press charges,
but Florida State Senator
Durell Peaden from Crest-
view sponsored the bill that
would become known as the
"Stand your Ground" law in
2005 and cited the Work-
mans as an example of why
the defense of domicile law
needed expansion. Cox's
family disagrees that he was
dangerous and needed med-
ical attention. The Work-


OKALOOSA COUNTY SHERIFF Larry Ashley attends
the first meeting of a task force convened by Florida Gover-
nor Rick Scott on May 2 to look at the Stand Your Ground
Latw passed in 2005, expanding the "Castle Doctrine" Stat-
ute contained in Florida Statute Chapter 776.


mans have said that they
"hate" what happened, but
James defended his family
in an "intense and frighten-
ing moment."
The law is spelled out in
Florida State Statute num-
ber 776 and can be found
at www.flsenate.gov/Laws/
Statutes/201 1/ChapterO776.
Since passage of the law,
it has been invoked over
200 times, sometimes by de-
fendants who were outside
the bounds of the law, such
as a recent case in front of
Hillsborough Circuit Judge
Gregory Holder. A drug deal
gone bad expanded into a
shooting, and the law was
invoked to protect one of the
defendants according to an
article by the Tampa Bay
Times. Holder said, "the law
is misapplied when it is used
by police and prosecutors as
a reason not to bring charg-
es in a homicide. It was not
designed to be decided by
them." He added, "the law
was intended for a defen-
dant's use in arguments be-
fore a judge. This is the way
it's supposed to be done."
Florida Governor Rick
Scott has convened a task
force to look into use of the
law, and one of the members
of that task force is Oka-
loosa County Sheriff Larry
Ashley. According to a press
release:
"Ashley attended the
first meeting of Governor
Scott's new 'Citizen Safety
and Protection Task Force'
on Monday in' Tallahassee,
saying 'Our ultimate goal is
to make sure the laws and
regulations we have on the
books provide the best level
of protection possible for our
citizens.' In the wake of the
Trayvon Martin shooting,
Governor Scott has tasked
the new 19-member panel


with reviewing Florida Stat-
ute Chapter 776 and any
other laws relating to public
safety and citizen protec-
tion. He then wants the Task
Force to make recommenda-
tions to the Governor and
Legislature on any suggest-
ed areas for improvement.
In Monday's initial meeting,
Sheriff Ashley and other
panel members discussed
getting down to the specifics
and scope of their mission.
A Task Force website has
been set up to provide infor-
mation and updates on the
committee's efforts: www.fl-
gov.com/citizensafety/. You

Twitter @FLCitizenSafety
and all meetings will be

According to trial attor-
neys Blake & Dorsten:
"The 'Stand Your Ground'
Law introduced two con-
clusive presumptions that
favor a criminal defendant
who is making a self-defense
claim:
1. The presumption that
the defendant had a reason-
able fear that deadly force.
'was necessary; and
2. The presumption that
the intruder intended to
commit an unlawful act in-
volving force or violence.
These two presumptions
protect the defender from
both civil and criminal pros-
ecution for unlawftil use of
deadly or non-deadly force
in" self-defense. In addition,
the defender/gun owner has
no duty to retreat, regard-'
less of where he is attacked,
so long as he is in a place
where he is lawfully enti-
tled to be when the danger
occurs.
"In passing the 'Stand
Your Ground' Law, the Flor-
ida Legislature expressed its
intent that no person should
be 'required to needlessly re-
treat in the face of intrusion
or attack.' The 'Stand Your
Ground' Law effectively ex-
pands the "Castle Doctrine"
by expanding what is meant
by the concept of one's'castle'
to include any place where a
person is lawfully entitled
to be. Florida's 'Stand Your
Ground' Law now provides
immunity from prosecution,
as opposed to an affirmative


defense that you would need
to assert in Trial (after be-
ing arrested and charged by
the State of Florida)."
Walton County Sheriffs
Office Lt. Andy Casavant
oversees training according
to Public Information Offi-
cer Wendy Ammons. Casa-
vant offered this insight
into the law at a local level
when the Herald-Breeze re-
quested some local insight
into the law, "One needs to
understand that ownership
and carrying of a firearm is
an awesome responsibility,
one that carries with it dire
consequences when used.
In order to understand and
simplify the issues, you are
reminded that you are le-
gally, morally, and ethically
responsible for every round
that leaves your, gun. You
can't call them back. There is
a mental trigger you should
set when carrying your fire-
arm and it needs to be set at
DEFENSE OF LIFE ONLY;
yours or someone else's.
Your firearm is not to be
used to stop a crime in prog-
ress or to intervene in any
situation other than to DE-
FEND LIFE. If you adhere
to that, you will have acted
reasonably. Chapter 790
F.S.S. defines many of the
firearms issues you might
have. It sets limitations on
when and where you can
carry and of particular im-
portance is 790.124 which
specifies safe storage of your
firearm. You can go online
and pull up this Statute for
further reading."

Energy Conservation


Discovery Expo

showcases money-saving

green technologies


By REID TUCKER
DeFuniak Springs'
first annual Energy Con-
servation Discovery Expo
demonstrated firsthand
how "green" technological
innovation can help save
the planet while helping
individuals and local gov-
ernment alike save green-
backs.
The drizzly, overcast
morning on Saturday,
May 5, did little to damp-
en the spirits of the hun-
dreds of Walton County
residents who attended
the expo, not only the first
of what is planned to be-
come a yearly event but
also the first of its kind in
county history. Visitors
and locals alike strolled
Circle Drive viewing
demonstrations of a va-
riety of alternative fuel
sources and innovative
building materials just
as high-tech as they are
environmentally, sustain-
able. Perhaps the most
interesting aspect of the
event's many demonstra-
tions was just how much
money could potentially
be saved by utilizing these
new technologies, most of
which offer substantial
long-term savings over
their more familiar coun-
terparts.
For city Code En-
forcement Officer Jason
O'Daniels, the event's
organizer, that moment
of discovery is what the
expo was all about.
"I wanted [DeFuniak
Springs] to have a yearly,
educational, fun event
that highlights the city,
brings in money for local
businesses, and brings in
visitors while also show-
ing people how alternative
energy sources can save
them money," he said. "If
people come away from
this understanding how
it's a lot more economi-
cally feasible to utilize
innovative technologies
like this than to go back
to what is known, then
this was a success. It's of-
ten the case that for every
dollar you spend you get
four dollars in savings.
There's really no reason
not to use these technolo-
gies when you look at it


that way."
Several companiesfrom
around the Pandhandle
and from as far away as
Birmingham, Ala. set up
booths showing off their
wares, be they vehicles
converted to switch be-
tween compressed natu-
ral gas or propane and
regular; gasoline or air
conditioning units pow-
ered by geothermal ener-
gy. A Tallahassee-based
firm was on hand to offer
bulk drive-through shred-
ding services for personal
documents. Triangle
Chevrolet Buick even got
in on the expo, showing
off GMs new Chevrolet
Volt hybrid vehicle, the
dealership's example of
which burned just 16 gal-
lons of gas despite show-
ing approximately 3,000
miles on its odometer.
Some of the tech on
display, like the spray-in
foam insulation material
made from soy and other
recycled or renewable
materials offered by Gulf
Coast Insulation, a De-
Funiak Springs company,
can reduce homeowners'
utility bills thanks to
its superior heat regula-
tion properties. Miramar
Beach-based Sustainable
Consulting Technologies,
LLP gave presentations
revolutionary building
materials that are not
only cheaper, in some
cases, than traditional
construction materials
like wood and concrete
but also save an estimat-
ed 70 percent on labor
due to a modular design
that allows fewer work-
ers to finish a structure.
Furthermore, they're cer-
tified to withstand earth-
quakes and Category-4
hurricanes, always a
plus, whether a home or
office is in Japan or the
Gulf Coast.
While the aforemen-
tioned firms set up booths
with product samples,
Ernst Cebert, environ-
mental sciences depart-
ment head at Alabama
A&M University, brought
a trailer containing an en-
tire bio-diesel processing
plant. Bio-diesel, which
can be made from waste


cooking grease generated
by restaurants, schools
and individual homes, is
of particular interest to
local governments for use
in heavy equipment, since
the materials needed to
make bio-diesel is not
only available in a virtu-
ally unlimited supply, but
also dramatically reduces
overall carbon emissions.
O'Daniels said the city of
DeFuniak Springs is look-
ing to buy its own 150-gal-
lon bio-diesel processing
plant, which, though it
costs $4,500, will pay for
itself in a few months be-
fore going on to save up
to $20,000 in yearly fuel
costs. Bio-diesel, on aver-
age, can be made for 80
cents per gallon on the
high end, though prices as
low as 70 cents per gallon
are possible. O'Daniels
said there is virtually
"no reason not to use it,"
since the city could col-
lect waste cooking grease
from local restaurants at
no cost.
O'Daniels said the bot-
tom line is to look at mul-
tiple energy sources, be
they propane, compressed
natural gas, bio-diesel or
pure electric for the city's
use, rather than focusing
looking to one fuel type or
new technology as a sil-
ver bullet solution. What
it ultimately comes down
to, he said, is saving mon-
ey for the city's taxpayers,
which could additional
benefits down the road.
"I don't look at tax-
payer money as a dollar
sign," O'Daniels said. "I
look at it as an increase
in positive services and
employment. When we
start employing more
people we are sustaining
our community while not
getting into the taxpay-
ers' pocket because we're
saving so much money.
When we save money and
instill pride into our com-
munity by becoming more
self-sustaining, then peo-
ple will take note and
that will draw businesses
and more people because
it shows we're taking care
of our own."

Dear Auntie Em, .


Dear Auntie Em,
I read with concern your
letter from last week and
wanted to add my own ex-
perience. Although, I am
not sure we share an issue,
sometimes we need to be re-
minded. When most people
see me, they think I am very
healthy. I look healthy to
them. I have good color in
my skin. My hair is thick.
I am of average weight and
height. I try to dress nice.
But, I have a bone disease
that will one day render
me almost helpless. I also
have an autoimmune issue
that makes it hard to func-
tion sometimes. Sometimes,
I can't button my blouse, or
tie my shoes. Sometimes,
I have to ride the cart at
the store while people look
down on me, because I look
OK to them. They just can't
see what is going on inside
of me. I don't walk around
with my medical test re-
sults taped to my back and
every day is not a bad day,
but many are. I just want-
ed to remind your readers
that just because someone
looks normal on the outside
doesn't mean they are not
hurting or having issues on
the inside. I mean really,
when was the last time you
saw cancer in a person until
it was too late? Right? They
looked healthy until it was
too far gone, but they were
sick on the inside before
it showed on the outside.
People need to not judge so
harshly until they know all
the facts.
Sick of judging
Dear Sick,


who went on vacation'. She
had recently had a hip re-
placement and couldn't walk
long distances. The behavior
of others towards her when
.she used a cart to sight-see
was horrible and she re-
ported her deep disappoint-
ment in how people behave
towards those that are dis-
abled in public. It made me
think about my own rush to
judgements.
I will be the first to admit
when I see the overweight
person tooling around in
their cart at the grocery,
their basket filled with soda
and chips, I judge. I want
to walk over and put some
apples and spinach in their
cart while they are reach-
ing for the Oreos. Is that my
place? No, probably not. Do
we have control over some
health issues? Yes. We can
learn to control what we put
in our mouths. Well, some of
us can. I have not perfected
the art of self-control either.
But, there are many that
hurt on the inside, as you
pointed out, and we never
see it. I have a dear friend
that has an autoimmune dis-
order and every day for her
is a struggle. Just getting
out of bed is painful. I have
watched her disease rob her
of her youth and vitality and
it is heartbreaking.
In the end, we could all
probably use a lot more com-
passion for each other. As it
has been quoted before, "be
kind to everyone you meet,
for we are all fighting a bat-
tle." Thank you for remind-
ing me and our readers of
that fact. Good luck, to you
and God bless you.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2012

Lakeside Concert Series Guild announces May concert


While everyone is enjoy-
ing the beauty of Spring
they can begin to anticipate
beauty in another form -
classical music.
The Lakeside Concert Se-
ries Guild, Inc.'s spring con-
cert this May will feature
Mary Brigid Roman, asso-
ciate Professor of Harp at
F.S.U. and principal harp-
ist with the Tallahassee
Symphony Orchestra and
the Northwest Florida Sym-
phony Orchestra.
Roman holds B.M. and
M.M. degrees from the
Eastman School of Music.
She has performed with the
Rochester Philharmonic Or-


Mother's Day brings with
it a new significance when
one becomes a parent. All
of a sudden, the selflessness
of every sacrifice comes into
focus. What a precious gift
mothers are.
This Mother's Day, I re-
call the special memories
my mother gave me, things
she may not know made an
impression, but will warm
me for a lifetime.
To my mother,
I remember the smile on
your face when dad would
bring me, as a little girl, to
visit you at work-the im-
mediate pride in your eyes
as if I made the sun rise, the
stars shine.
SI remember how special
you made me feel when you
brought me a Happy Meal
or personal pan pizza for
lunch in elementary school.
I was automatically the cool
kid with the cool mom.
I remember that you al-
ways let my friends and me
light the tapered candles
and drink juice out of the
fancy glasses when I had
sleepovers.
I remember that we used
to have duels to see whom
could make the other laugh
the hardest,, and you always
won.
I remember that you used
to let me watch The Lion
King every day (and now
having a two-year-old, I can
appreciate the madness of
having to see the same car-
toon again and again).
I remember that you al-
ways stood up for me when I
had dress code violations in
school because my legs were
too long and the only shorts
that came to my knees were
in the boys' department.
I remember that you en-
couraged all of my dreams.
Even if I was not suited for
them, you let me make that
discovery on my own and
told me I could do anything.
I remember getting lost
in -Orlando while trying to
find our way back to the
hotel from Disney World,
and laughing so hard about
passing the same Denny's
twice we didn't care.
I remember our runaway
girls' trip to New York City
and that horrible ballet, but
great deli on 52nd Street. -
I remember you walking
me down the aisle at my
wedding.
I remember the first
words you said to me when
I told you I was going to be a
mother were, "Congratula-
tions, you'll be wonderful,"
not "Are you sure it's the
right time," or "You're so
young" or any of the fears
running through my head.
Thank you for all of these
memories.
Thank you for standing
by me when I made mis-
takes, and holding my hand
when I realized them.
Thank you for being there
when I need you, even when
we disagree.
Thank you for raising me
to think for myself.
Thank you for still cook-
ing me chicken and dump-
lings when I'm sick.
Thank you for being light-
hearted and teaching me to
take myself less seriously.
Thank you for showing
me the importance of stop-
ping to smell the flowers


chestra and other orchestras
in New York state, under
such conductors as Dorati,
Gould, Kachaturian, Shaw,
and Stravinsky.
In 1968 she joined the
faculty of the Florida State
University School of Music
to head one of oldest harp
departments in the country.
Since then she has appeared
frequently as a solo and en-
semble performer through-
out the Southeast.
An active member of the
American Harp Society,
Roman has served on the
Board of Directors of the
American Harp Society,.and
has written articles for the


instead of examining how
much they cost, how much
sunlight they need, and how
often they have to be wa-
tered.
I am so glad you are my
mother. There are millions
of moments and memories
that I'll never recall, sacri-
fices I will never even know
about, but to quote one of
your favorite women, Maya
Angelou, "People will forget
what you said. People will
forget what you did. But peo-
ple will never forget how you
made them feel." Thank you
for making me feel loved.


American Harp Journal and
The Instrumentalist. She
has edited, published and
recorded works of harpist/
composer Alfred Holy.
The solo harp program
which Roman will present
will span 400 years of harp
music. The concert will
be held at 3 p.m. on May
20 in the main sanctuary
of the First United Meth-


odist Church at 88 Circle
Drive (directly across from
the Chautauqua Build-
ing). There will be a recep-
tion immediately following
the concert to provide an
opportunity for concert go-
ers to meet the artist. Both
the concert and reception
are free. A collection will be
taken (by the Guild) to be
used solely for the support
of future concerts.

THE FREEPORT BULLDOGS FOOTBALL TEAM had
just fewer than 40 athletes turn up for the first day of spring
training on Tuesday, May 1, and their coaches quickly put
them through the paces. (Photo by Reid Tucker)


ketball season at Paxton
High School was one that
demonstrated how a differ-
ent style of leadership can
still help a team achieve
success on the court.
This last season was the
first in several without a
bona fide superstar. For the
past three years the Bobcats
could rely on the power and
talent of Demetrius Jackson,
the athleticism of his cousin
Shaq Jackson, and the ac-
curate all-range shooting of
Josh McLaney, but 2011-
2012 was a different year.
Without those big names
on the roster, it meant the
team had to fall back on tra-
ditional Paxton strengths,
those being execution and
solid teamwork if it wanted
to succeed.
Enter Chad Zessin, the
6-foot-8-inch forward who
went from being an able
contributor in a veritable
wrecking crew to having the
mantle of de facto go-to play-
er on the team be laid almost
exclusively on his shoulders
in his senior year.


THE BULLDOGS' COACHING STAFF, head coach Jim
Anderson and assistant coaches Shaun Arntz, Mike Myrick
and Lloyd Anderson, worked out the details of scheduling
the different stations for the first week of spring training.

Zessin rose to the occasion,
though not in the way some
may have thought he would.
Rather than trying to fill the
shoes of the Jacksons, two
of the highest-scoring hoops
players in Walton County
history, Zessin instead be-
came the focal point of a
concerted team effort from
the Bobcats. Coach Jeff
Bradley said he was a player
that could be depended on to
take the lead while also be-
ing more than willing to put
the team's success ahead of
his own.
"There were several op-
portunities during the
course of the year when he
could have been very selfish
and done more of what a lot
people think is important as
far as how many points he
put in the scorebook, but
he didn't do that," Bradley
said. "Getting other people
involved was really why we
ended up winning 20 games
for the fifth straight year. He
took over when he needed to
but he also stepped back to
let other people get those
options."
The Bobcats fell to Ma-
lone in the regular season as
well as in the district cham-
pionship game, and even-
tual state champion Chipley
defeated them in the region-
al semi-final, but Paxton
nevertheless finished the
season with a 20-7 record.
Though the team was more
important to Zessin than
his own personal stats, his
individual accomplishments
over the course of his career
speak for themselves just as
much as they speak to his
commitment to playing as
part of a squad.
He scored 926 career
points over the course of
85 games, averaging 10.9
points per game, and he
scored 474 of those points as
a senior. Perhaps more tell-
ing is the fact that he aver-
aged a double-double on the
year, showing he was not
one to shy away from play-
ing defensively as well.
Zessin's style of play simi-
larly evolved over the years,
changing from a support
role when he joined the var-
sity team as a ninth-grader
into a player who could at-
tack the basket or nail shots
from the perimeter with
equal authority as a senior.


He also saw his free-throw
percentage increase from 49
percent as a junior to 72 per-
cent in his last year.
Continuity plays a huge
1art in the dynamics of Pax-
ton's athletic programs and
none is held in higher es-
teem than basketball, Zes-
sin said.. As a k-12 student
at Paxton, Zessin said the
expectations, both those
from schoolmates and fans
as well those he held per-
sonally, were very much on
his mind going into his se-
nior year, when he knew he
would inherit a leadership
role.
"Everyone at Paxton
wants to be a basketball
player," Zessin said. "That's
how much we look up to
them from the time we're
in kindergarten. I saw my
brother, who is four years
older than me, playing bas-
ketball in high school and
that's what always inspired
me to play as hard as I could
and it drove me to get bet-
ter each year. Our coaching
staff prepares [everyone on
the team] to be leaders so
that anyone can step into
that spot when you have
to. I was honored to be that
person for us."

Zessin will attend North-
west Florida State College,
to which he received an
academic scholarship, this
fall. Coach Bradley said
Zessin made the decision
to walk on for the Raiders
basketball team not because
the option to play for other
schools wasn't there. Rath-
er, getting his education,
and one day becoming an
optometrist, is a greater pri-
ority than playing the sport
he loves.
"Chad did not choose the
easy road," Bradley said.
"He had plenty of options
to play at other schools, but
none of the offers he had
were as good a full academic
scholarship, and he'll still
have a good chance to walk
on with a state runner-up
team [at NWF State].
"His focus and drive to
get an education will open
up even more opportunities
for him on down the road.
Those and other qualities of
his as a person far surpass
his abilities as a basketball
player."

Sports News and Notes: Harrison Signs With Liberty


By PATRICK CASEY and
REID TUCKER
South Walton track and
field athlete Jessica Harrison
will attend Virginia's Liberty
University this fall, making
her the fourth Seahawk in
recent years to sign a track
scholarship with a Division 1
school. Harrison signed a let-
ter of intent on Friday, May
4, at the South Walton High
School gymnasium at a small
ceremony attended by her
parents, John and Grace, sib-
lings Barbie and Johnny, and
her coaches. Harrison also
received letters of acceptance
from the University of Flori-
da and from the U.S. Naval
Academy in Annapolis, Md.
before deciding on Liberty,
an institution well-known for
its successful track program
and its broadcast journalism
program, in which she will
enroll come fall. "Liberty's
track team is the epitome of
what I wanted in a program,"
Harrison said. "It was a hard
decision to make since [the
school] is so far away from
home for me, but I'm happy
with it." Harrison's private
coach, Willie Parker, who has
been worked with her for a
year and a half, said Harri-
son is one the most dedicated
student-athletes he has ever
trained. Parker, a Liberty
graduate himself, said the
university will find in Harri-
son an athlete physically and
mentally, ready to perform at
the next level. "I knew from
the first time I met her that
she always had the desire
to succeed," Parker said. "I
think Liberty will be getting
a young lady who knows ex-
actly what she wants to do."

Freeport High School hosts Tropicana Public Speaking Contest


Story and Photos by JEF-
FREY POWELL
Public speaking can be
intimidating for many peo-
ple, especially if the crowd is
filled with a person's peers.
With this in mind, the Trop-
icana Corporation started
the 4-H Tropicana Public
Speaking Contest in 1969
with the intention of giving
students an opportunity to
break this cycle of fear and
excel in public speaking.
The contest is an annual
event and includes students
in the fourth, fifth and sixth
grades. The Walton County
finals were held on May 5,
at the Freeport High Schoctl
with 30 area students giv-
ing their speeches.
"I think it is good for stu-
dents to. speak in front of
people," said Mossy Head
fifth-grader Braden Reeves.
"I hope to be a dentist and
I believe this will help me
later in life."
Statewide over 150,000
young people in more than
50 Florida counties partici-
pate annually in the contest.
Tropicana provides class-
room materials for teachers,
certificates of participation,
medallions for school win-
ners, trophies for county
winners, summer camp
scholarships and Tropicana
orange juice, refreshments
for county contests. Close
to 2 million students have
participated in the program
since its inception.


Thursday's fourth-grade
winners were; first place
Grace Ann Mottola, second
place Kobe Phillips, third
place Riley Herrington, hon-
orable mention Josiah Lo-
pez-Poindexter, most infor-
mative Lindsey Pflugradt,
most entertaining Zachary
Benkoczy and most persua-
sive Malory Lewvis.
Fifth-grade winners were,;
first place Olivia Wilson, sec-
ond place Elise Fogg, third
place Christopher Lewis,
honorable mention Kenedi
Mills, most informative Bry-
son Harbridge, most enter-
taining Jesse Anderson and
most persuasive Ella Losee
Sixth-grade winners
were; Ellie Johnson, sec-
ond place Jenna Adelman,
third place Jordan Camp-
bell, honorable mention Ally
Woodard, most informative
Garet Tate, most entertain-
ing Ellie Johnson and most
persuasive Jenna Adeiman.
"The Tropicana Public
Speaking Contest is a won-
derful program," said 4-H
Youth Development Exten-
sion Agent Suzanne Wil-
son. "The public has been
very supportive as have the
teachers and principals. We
would also like to thank [Su-
perintendent] of schools Car-
lene Anderson for attending
tonight's event. Thanks also
to Kiwanis Club President -
Elect Brian Gilbert for eme
ceeing the show."

Walton High School presents Full Score



Spring Showcase for the Arts


Story and photos by BRUCE
COLLIER
Musicians of al ages,
from schools all over Walton
County, gathered last Fri-
day night at Walton High
School for Full Score Spring
Showcase for the Arts. The
concert ran from 6 8:30
p.m., and, played to a sub-
stantial crowd.

This reporter was sched-
uled to cover the event as a
spectator, but was contacted
Friday morning and asked
to fill in as master of cere-
monies for John Grice, who
was taken ill, so the concert
had to be viewed and pho-
tographed from off-stage
right.
Participating school
bands and ensembles in-
cluded Maude Saunders
Elementary's Kids of Dis-
tinction Music Club, Wal-
ton Middle School's Sixth
and Seventh Grade Con-
cert Chorus, Walton High
School Chorus, members of
South Walton High School


Band, the Paxton Junior/
Senior High School Concert
Band, Walton Middle School
Eighth Grade Advanced
Band, and the Walton Se-
nior High School Concert
Band. In addition to band
and ensemble performanc-
es, the evening featured a
number of solo and duet in-
strumental performances,
played on marimba, flute,
clarinet, and euphonium, as
well as vocal solos.
South Walton's contribu-
tion, its first time playing
in Full Score, offered some-
thing different in the form of
Luke Cyr's "The Factory," a
percussive piece for brooms,
step ladders, trash cans and
precision movement.
The choice of pieces
ranged from classical, pop,
folk, and marches to show
tunes and sacred music. The
audience enthusiastically
showed its appreciation,
and partisans for schools
and soloists expressed their
support with cheers and en-
couragement.

Judge promises ru


"wedd

By DOTTY NIST
Attorneys for the owners
of a large short-term rental
home in Seagrove Beach
have made the argument
that Walton County has "no
regulatory basis" to prohibit
renters from holding wed-
dings, receptions, and other
events in the home.
Walton County has main-
tained that the occurrence
of these events amounts to
"nonresidential use" of the
property, which is in a resi-
dential area, representing a
code violation due to the fre-
quency of the events.
Legal representatives for
the property owners and the
county made arguments in


ing hoi

DeFuniak Springs on April
30 in the court of Walton
County Circuit Judge Da-
vid Green. Both parties had
filed motions for summary
judgment asserting that
there were no material or
factual issues to be decided
in a trial. Approval of one
of the motions for summary
judgment would settle the
matter in favor of one of
the parties without a full-
fledged trial.
In the interest of disclo-
sure, Judge Green told the
attorneys that his wife's
sister is married to Walton
County Code Enforcement
Officer Stosh Arnold. He did
not think Arnold had been


in


use" lawsuit


involved in the code enforce-
ment case on the alleged
violation. He was thanked
for providing that informa-
tion, and no objections were
made to his presiding over
the hearing.
The owners of the home,
Karen and Reppard Ben-
nett, sued the county in June
2011, soon after the Walton
County Code Enforcement
Board (CEB) found them in
error for a repeat violation
involving alleged use of the
home in a nonresidential
manner. Fines of $500 per
day were imposed, which
were to continue as long as
the alleged violation was in
existence.


The Bennetts argued that
those fines were illegal and
in violation of their rights to
due process and equal pro-
tection under the law. They
claimed a "taking" of their
property due to the .alleged
violation of their rights by
the county.
Representing the coun-
ty, attorney Tim Warner
argued that the Bennetts
should have known when
they purchased their prop-
erty in 2002 that the Waltqn
County Land Development
Code (LDC) did not allow
this type of use in residen-
tial areas. They are not be-

projects

topic of

meeting
By DOTTY NIST
Officials and staff from
Walton County and a num-
ber of other Florida gulf
coast counties gathered in
Walton County on May 7
for an update on negotia-
tions with BP on early res-
toration projects. There was
also a status report on these
projects to be funded by BP
in response to impacts of the
2010 Deepwater Horizon oil
spill.
The meeting took place
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex.
Mimi Drew provided the
update and report. Drew
represents Gov. Rick Scott
as Natural Resource Dam-
age Assessment (NRDA)
Trustee for Florida. NRDA
is an ongoing legal process
that will determine what
restoration will be needed
to compensate the public
for the spill with regard to
damage to natural resourc-
es and/or loss of the public's
ability to use those natural
resources.
While the total amount
BP. will be providing as a
result of the company's lia-
bility in the spill is yet to be
determined, BP has pledged
$1 billion for early restore:
tion efforts in the Gulf Coast
states. Florida is to receive
$100 million of that amount
for projects. Counties have
submitted proposed projects
for funding through that
$100 million and through a
$300 million portion that is
under the control of the De-
partment of the Interior and
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administra-
tion.
Drew reported that 437
potential projects had been
submitted for consideration
in this funding, at a total
estimated value of $4.4 bil-
lion.

tion projects are ready to

TESTIMONY CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


during Surf Cottages. The
parcel is located in a Coastal
Center land use area and is
adjacent to residential con-
dominiums on the west and
east.
The Walton County Land
Development Code describes
this land use as "primarily
residential, allowing medi-
um residential densities and
supporting uses." Standard
sit-down restaurants with-
out drive-up facilities are
listed as an allowable use,
along with office and arti-
sanal workplaces and some
retail stores, among others
uses.
Project applicant Bob
Bonezzi was present for the
hearing with his attorney
David Theriaque. Local at-
torney Dana Matthews rep-
resented opponents of the
proposal.
Testifying for the oppo-
nents, professional planner
Pat Blackshear stated that
of the 701 parcels surround-
ing the project site, more
than 600, or 85 percent, are
residential. She added that
San Antonio Street, which
borders the project site, is
"used heavily" by pedestri-
ans in accessing the beach.
Blackshear said it be-
came clear to her in observ-
ing pedestrian movement in
the area that San Antonio
Street is a valuable resource
used by the public. She said
she observed parking in
"high volumes" on San An-


tonio for people using the
nearby beach access.
She noted that the east-
ern wall of the Avalon Dunes
condominium is facing what
will be the restaurant's bar.
Blackshear said she had
concerns that the condo-
minium would be very much
impacted by the restaurant
and bar's visual and noise
aspects.
She commented that the
Crescent at Miramar, lo-
cated on the east side of the
project site, separated by
San Antonio Street, would
not be as severely impacted,
depending on hours of opera-
tion for the restaurant. This
is a very family-oriented
condominium, Blackshear
noted.
Blackshear observed that
the Coastal Center land use
allows "supporting commer-
cial." As existing examples
of this' she listed a winery
and a coffee shop in the vi-
cinity. This is supporting
commercial that opens and
closes at appropriate times
to avoid negative impact on
residences, she remarked.
There is also no negative
impact from the Grimaldi
office building, Blackshear
commented.
She said she observed
within a quarter mile of
the project site single fam-
ily and multifamily resi-
dences, an RV park, three
large churches, and the post
office. With the exception


of the Alvin's Island beach
shop, all uses are ones that
residents would walk to, not
ones that would draw traf-
fic from U.S. 98, Blackshear
continued. The Embassy
Suites hotel lies to the north
of the project site and func-
tions in the same manner as
a condominium, she main-
tained.
Blackshear described the
proposed restaurant as not
compatible with adjacent
uses or surrounding uses
within a quarter mile of the
project site. She warned that
the restaurant would draw
patrons from outside the vi-
cinity and "overpower" the
neighborhood.
She also made the argu-
ment that, while Scenic Gulf
Drive is designated as a sce-
nic corridor in the Walton
County Land Development
Code, Section 13 of the code,
the Scenic Corridor provi-
sions, was not applied to the
project plans. Among the
inconsistencies with these
provisions noted by Blacks-
hear were insufficient area
for parking and an increase
in congestion.
"It's too much on one site,"
she said of the proposal.
Blackshear also charged
that buffers for the proposal
were inadequate. She main-
tained that the development
would impede pedestrian
movement and limit public
beach use due to its crowd-
ing of San Antonio Street


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2012


with additional parking of
vehicles and delivery traffic
to the restaurant.
She stated that the proj-
ect application should have
been deemed incomplete.
Blackshear, who formerly
served as county planning
director, said that as plan-
ning director, based on con-
cerns, she would have asked
the applicant for a compat-
ibility analysis, even though
the code does not put forth
this requirement.
In cross examination
of Blackshear, Theriaque
asked if the beach access at
San Antonio Street was not
a private beach access. He
said it was his understand-
ing that it was an access
used by St. Tropez, Sea-
spray, and some of the other
condominiums. Blackshear
responded that she had not
described the beach access
as public, but that she had
been referring to San Anto-
nio Street right-of-way as a
public resource. However,
she noted that the gates to
the beach access had been
open every time she had
been there.
Therique made the point
that the square footage,
floor area ratio, and height
of many of the buildings in
the vicinity of the project
site were greater than what
was being proposed for the
restaurant.
He also challenged the
contention that allowable
uses in Coastal Center
would not draw people from
outside of the vicinity, giv-
ing the example of engineer-


ing and physicians' offices.
Would those not attract peo-
ple from outside a quarter-
mile radius? Blackshear an-
swered that they would, but
maintained that the impacts
of these uses on residents
would be much less than for
the proposed restaurant.
Wendy Grey, a profes-
sional planner called as an
expert witness for the appli-
cant, also testified that she
had visited the project site
and had conducted a com-
patibility assessment with
reference to properties sur-
rounding the location.
Grey stated the meaning
of compatibility as present-
ing "no undue negative im-
pact" on surrounding prop-
erties. She added that, in a
mixed-use classification, it
is presumed that there will.,
be a variety of uses and that
a compatibility review is not
required of an applicant.
Asked her opinion on the
compatibility of a restau-
rant at this location, Grey
responded that it would be
compatible. While agree-
ing that the area is primar-
ily residential, Grey pointed
out that a hotel, a retail
store, and a professional of-
fice building exist in the vi-
cinity.
This will be, she contin-
ued, a one-story restaurant
on a lot of over two acres.
The building, she said, will,
represent just 7.5 percent of
the total area of the lot.
Grey said concerns with
the restaurant dumpster
had been addressed by mov-
ing it to the northeast corner


of the site, the farthest part
of the property from Avalon
Dunes. She said the win-
dows of the restaurant that
face Avalon Dunes will not
open. There is no outdoor
deck proposed, just a land-
ing, she detailed, any in any
case, county code would pro-
hibit outdoor music. Turtle-
friendly lighting planned for
the restaurant will minimize
light impact on neighboring
properties, Grey added.
There will be "no undue
impact" on Avalon Dunes,
and the restaurant will be
able to co-exist in harmony
with surrounding residen-
* tial uses, Grey asserted.
Grey maintained that
there was no requirement
for supporting commercial
uses in Coastal, Center to
serve only the surrounding
portion of the community.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones asked Grey if,
based on her understanding
of the Walton County Com-
prehensive Plan and land
development code, she saw
an instance in which a com-
patibility analysis would be
required for such a propos-
al.
She responded no, not as
the project is currently dq-
signed, as it meets code re-
quirements.
With several additional
witnesses remaining to tes-
tify and approximately 20
citizens scheduled to speak,
the hearing was continued
due to the late hour. Testi-
mony was scheduled to re-
sume at 5 p.m. on May 14
at the South Walton Court-
house Annex.


RULING CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


ing deprived from renting
out the home, he added.
Representing the Ben-
netts, ,Port St. Lucie attor-
ney Stephen Gieseler main-
tained that the code does not
give the county authority to
regulate events at rental
properties.
"This is a touchy political
issue," Giegseler commented.
He noted that they county
has not challenged property
owners who hold events on


their property or long-term
renters who hold events.
Only when short-term rent-
ers hold events is the county
considering the events to
be commercial in nature---
"without any regulatory ba-
sis," Gieseler argued.
The Bennetts have main-
tained that language in the
code in connection with resi-
dential and nonresidential
uses is vague and difficult
to understand. Gieseler


pointed 'out that the county
had proposed ordinances to
regulate events in residen-
tial areas.
The proposed ordinances
had drawn much criticism
from property owners and
from others, including the
weddling/events industry
and Gieseler, and were not
passed.
Gieseler asserted that
if the code clearly prohib-
ited short-term renters from


holding events there would
be no reason for such an ordi-
nance. He suggested that an
ordinance regulating events
could specify the frequency
that events could take place
on a property and the num-
ber of persons who could
attend. This would give the
Bennetts guidance, he said,
in telling renters they could
not hold events, for example,
if over a certain number of
people woud be attending. It
would be important for such
an ordinance to "apply to ev-
erybody" Gieseler said, and
put all property owners on
an equal footing.


Judge Green asked Gie-
seler if the Bennetts would
support an ordinance and
if it would satisfy their con-
cerns. Gieseler responded
that the Bennetts had not
opposed such an ordinance.
Warner responded by
saying that the question at
hand was not whether the
county could have regu-
lated nonresidential activ-
ity in residential areas in a
more "artful" manner. "It's
whether what is in place
meets Constitutional mus-
ter," he asserted
Judge Green told the at-

Northwest Florida Tourism Council issues



statement in wake of Bellinger death


By STAFF

Note: Last Friday Mark
Bellinger, former executive
director of Okaloosa County
Tourism Development Coun-
cil, died of a suspected drug
overdose in Pelham, Ala.
Bellinger was facing grand
theft charges and was the
target of a criminal inves-
tigation into alleged misuse
of bed tax money and funds
from a BP oil spill grant.
Bellinger had resigned, ad-
mitting to having spent bed
tax money to purchase a,
$710,000 yacht. He claimed
the yacht was to be used in
a promotional,- campaign.
The investigation continues,
with a forensic audit. Mean-
time the Northwest Florida
Tourism Council issued an
official statement, printed
below:

"Official Statement from


the Northwest Florida Tour-
ism Council:
"In light of the recent
tragedy, The Northwest
Florida Tourism Council ex-
tends their condolences to
the Bellinger family during
this difficult time.
"The Northwest Florida
Tourism Council is com-
prised of the seven official
destination county-level
marketing organizations
in the region of Northwest
Florida (Escambia, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton,
Bay, Gulf, and Franklin
Counties) that was impact-
ed by the Deepwater Hori-
zon Oil Spill. This organiza-
tion received a $30 million
marketing grant from BP
that was passed through to
each individual county's of-
ficial destination marketing
organization.
"A Memorandum of Un-
derstand detailing the con-


tractual terms of the grant
was executed between BP
and the Council. As part
of the MOU an addendum
was also executed between
each member organization/
county in order to accept
any said funds. The TDC/
County representative, act-
ing on behalf of and with
full authority to commit the
entity and county, agreed to
ratify and agree to be bound
by any and all terms con-
tained in the Agreement as
if said entity or county had
signed the MOU.
"Each Member organi-
zation signed and had the
responsibility of submit-
ting marketing/advertising
plans that are also attached
to the MOU. These plans
related to the development,
implementation, and ad-
ministration of the tourism
program. Each county cre-
ated a unique and separate


plan to utilize these funds
to market their community
as a tourist destination and
aid in the economic recovery
stemming from the Deepwa-
ter Horizon Oil Spill. Any
deviation from said plans
required the entity/county
responsible to submit a
written change order to BP
for approval. Okaloosa TDC/
CVB or the County, had no
change orders submitted
throughout this process.
"It was also each member
organization's responsibil-
ity for maintaining the ap--
propriate documentation
outlining each expenditure
made in support of their
plan, as well as abide by the
standard accounting pro-
cedures and policies estab-
lished by that member orga-
nization/county.
"In addition' each mem-
ber organization/county was
responsible, on a quarterly


basis, to create a report for
BP that demonstrated how
their individual plans were
executed and the results of
those activities.
"The Northwest Flori-
da Tourism Council is as
shocked as everyone else is
to learn of the potentially
fraudulent activities con-
ducted by the Executive
Director of the Okaloosa
County TDC/CVB. Responsi-
bilities, reporting, and docu-
ment was discussed in every
quarterly Council meeting
with the member organiza-
tions. Furthermore, it was
well understood that when
each member organization/
county accepted the grant it
was subject to all the same
standard accounting, op-
erational, and legal require-
ments by which they cur-
rently abide in each county.
It is all accessible and sub-
ject to public records within


each member organization/
county.
"The Council has reached
out to Okaloosa officials to
provide any and all docu-
mentation that they may
need to assist the local,
state, and federal authori-
ties in their investigation.
All of the counties have set
records and have consistent-
ly had increases in bed tax
collections as a direct result
from the execution of the BP
grant.

"This is an unfortunate
situation but not reflective
of how TDCs operate or ex-
ecuted the grants in their
counties. Tourism is a sig-
nificant economic engine in
Northwest Florida, and as
we discovered during the oil
spill, takes a focused, stra-
tegic and responsible ap-
proach to maintain our visi-
tation for years to come."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2012


qArCt lips


Sunday is the official day that we honor those
women who have given us life, put up with us
throughout the crazy teenage years, and have
been with us through the good and bad days.
For all those who are still fortunate to still have
our mothers, why not make it more than just a
day's celebration, and extend "her" special day all
throughout the year?


We have been seeing
commercials for jewelry,
roses, shoes, and even for
new cars, being advertised
all over the television, news-
papers and the Internet. An
endless stream of gifts to
pour on the special lady in
your life, and at rock-bottom
prices.
It is no surprise, that once
again, Hallmark came up
with the idea, that should
have been practiced for
centuries. But for many, a
card just doesn't cut it, and
a packed wallet is the only
way they feel they can repay


their mom for all the years
of her love and devotion.
Mother's Day means
many things to many people.
It's a celebration of spring,
of family, and of together-
ness. It's a time to remem-
ber how much we mean to
each other, and to fuss over
our mothers.
Mother's Day has been
celebrated in the United
States since early in the last
century. In 1914, President
Woodrow Wilson proclaimed
it a national holiday to be
held every year on the sec-
ond Sunday in May.


THE CULTURAL ARTS ALLIANCE, once again rolls
out the red carpet this weekend, to more than 100 fine arts
artists. The annual ArtsQuest, returns to Seaside, May 12
and 13. For more information on ArtsQuest, call 622-5970,
or log on to www.culturalartsalliance.org.


Long before our own
Mother's Day was named,
mothers have been memori-
alized. The ancient Greeks
-honored Rhea, mother of the
gods, on a special day. The
Romans honored Cybele,
their own mother of the Ro-
man gods.
Later, Christians named
the fourth Sunday of Lent
as a day to honor Mary,
the mother of Jesus. By
the 19th century, the Eng-
lish had transformed that
day into Mothering Sunday
and declared it a holiday for
servants to visit their moth-
ers, freshly baked cakes in
hand.
Julia Ward Howe is cred-
ited with first suggesting a
day to honor American moth-
ers and to celebrate peace in
1872. Howe, who wrote the
words for the "Battle Hymn
of the Republic," organized
annual Mother's Day meet-
ings in Boston.
In 1907, Anna Jarvis
urged her mother's church in
Grafton, W. Va., to remem-
ber her mother on the sec-
ond Sunday in May, which
was the second anniversary
of her death. During her life,
Jarvis's mother had cam-
paigned to raise awareness
of poor health conditions in
rural West Virginia commu-
nities, and Jarvis wanted to
honor this memory.
Jarvis transported the
celebration to her own
church in Philadelphia. She
then began years of lobby-
ing local and national poli-
ticians to formalize& the day.
She met with Presidents
Taft and Roosevelt and fi-
nally in 1913, the House of
Representatives adopted a
resolution calling for federal
government officials to wear
white carnations in honor of
mothers on the second Sun-
day in May.
President Wilson made
Mother's Day official in
1914. Hallmark says that
the only other day that sells
more cards is Valentine's
Day.
There have been many
stories that have touched
us, and have been acted out
on stage and screen. From
Throw Momma From the
Train, and Mommy Dear-
est, to Monster-In-Law, and


Mamma Mia!, ,these movies
have celebrated the good
and bad in mothers and
taught us all that moms are
people to.
But one of the most tear-
jerking stories I have ever
heard, .came from a set. of
brides, twins, that were get-
ting married on the same
day, and all the expense had
to come from the mother,
since the father had passed
away in the Gulf War of the
'90s. It was a story that I
have repeated many times
to friends, but its message
never gets old.
The mother, .who had
been saving to go on a three-
month cruise around the
world with several of her
other widow friends, had
her plans abruptly changed,
when both daughters an-
nounced their dual wedding.
This is an expense that all
mothers know falls on them,
the mother of the bride/
brides.
Putting her long-awaited
trip in the bottom of her
bucket list, she started
tightening the money belt,
and squeezing every dime
she could find, in order to
pay for her daughter's big
days. And at 58 years-old,
she even took a part-time
,job as a restaurant hostess,
to bring in more money for
the events.
Both daughters were
marrying enlisted men, and
for the past three or four
years, they traveled the


world, visiting their soon-to-
be husbands, so they actual-
ly had been on honeymoons
for several years. This is the
part of the story where you
need to grab a Kleenex.
On the day of the daugh-
ter's wedding, at the recep-
tion, the two girls called
their mother up in front of
the crowds, to thank her for,
all she had done by herself.
After the cordial applause,
the twins then pulled out an
envelope and presented it to
their mother.
Inside the envelope, was
a round-trip airline ticket to
New York, where she would
depart on a luxury cruise
ship to tour Spain, Austra-
lia, India, Africa," Italy and
several other countries, on
the three-month cruise. The
twins had also gotten second
jobs, and gave up their own
honeymoons, to send their
mother on a lifetime trip.
Oddly enough, when the
mother got married 26 years
earlier, she had to miss her
own honeymoon because her
father passed away the night
-after her wedding. Thus, the
plans she had with her new
husband had to be put on
hold.
Now that might sound
too extreme and hard to be-
lieve that children can be
that thoughtful, but there
are those who feel they owe
more than just their life, to
their mothers.
As- Mother's Day comes
this weekend, why not go
. .1


a step beyond the card and
Sunday dinner at mom's
house, and make it a week-
end to remember. Make it
a weekend of celebration,
or take her away for a few
days, with the grand kids,
for just a quick getaway.
If you do not live near
your mother, there is still
something you can do to
brighten up another Moth-
er's Day. Many of the nurs-
ing homes have mothers
there that no longer have
a family, and what a great
present to them, and you,
if you just stop by and wish
them Happy Mother's Day.
To all you mothers out
there, enjoy the day, relish
the celebration, and allow
yourself to surround your-
self with things that make
you happy, like your family.
If you are celebrating that
special day with your wife,
mother of your children,
or your own mom, relish
the time you will be able to
spend with them, and what
joy will come to everyone
that celebrates with you.
Also, always remember
the old saying that you were
reminded of by your moth-
er, that you were told as a
child, "I brought you into
this world, and I can take
you out!" The scary thing
is, those threats, only your
mom could get away with,
and she was the only woman
that was possibly capable of
doing just that!
Happy Mother's Day!,

Historic vessel gets lift

from Bay County Boatyard


A familiar site in this
area since 1995, the Gover-
nor Stone, 134 year-old Na-
tional Historic Landmark
Schooner, will return to her
slip in St. Andrews Marina
on Saturday, May 5. The
following week the vessel
will be at Bay County Boat-
yard for rigging repair and
general survey in prepara-
tion for significant hull re-
pairs and restoration efforts
anticipated in the fall.
Boatyard owners Rob-
ert Jones and Yates Adams
are providing a crane to lift
workers to the mastheads to
effect rigging repair. They
are also donating labor,
equipment and yard space
to the Friends of the Gov-
ernor Stone, Inc. for this
project. "As a nonprofit vol-
unteer organization and as
stewards of the public inter-
est in this vessel, we rely on
community support and are
pleased to be working with
Bay County Boatyard for
needed repairs to this ves-
sel," stated Stone Captain


Bill Hamilton.
The Governor Stone is
the last known example of
the shallow draft schooners
that once sailed coastal wa-
ters including Saint Andrew
Bay. These truly versatile
vessels played a crucial role
in the founding and devel-
opment of coastal commu-
nities prior to the advent of
roads and railways. They
were widely used to offload
larger cargo vessels and to
carry freight, passengers,
supplies and mail.
The Friends of the Gov-
ernor Stone, Inc. displays,
sails, protects, preserves
and maintains the Schoo-
ner Governor Stone. We
welcome new members and.
supporters. Visit www.
GovernorStone.org or face-
book.com/governorstone to
learn more.

tion and photo opportunities

ment, aquatic resources,
land acquisition, and region-
al projects. Projects must
meet specific criteria set
forth by the Oil Pollution
Act. In addition, Florida has
implemented requirements
that projects be capable of
being completed in 18 to 24
months---and for projects to
be located in the eight-coun-
ty area of the Panhandle
that deployed booms and
was impacted by the spill.
Project submittals are to
be reviewed by state Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) and Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission staff with
regard to NRDA criteria,
and by independent consul-
tants, with a decision to be
made by the State Trustee
on projects to proceed to the
Trustee Council.
Once at the Trustee
Council level, projects will
undergo review, by that
council, then proceed to BP
for review and approval,
and later move to negotia-


tions that will determine
BP's credit for projects.
Project funding is to come
through DEP, and the agen-
cy may proceed in one of two
ways. One would be for DEP
to bid out each approved
project, hiring a design con-
sultant and contractor and
also contracting either with
the local government in the
project location or a private
third party to provide ser-
vices during construction.
The other way would be for
DEP to transfer the funding
to a sister agency to imple-
ment project design, permit-
ting and construction.
Drew noted that public
comment will be accepted
throughout the project re-
view and approval process,
and that public meetings to
take input will be scheduled
once BP and the Trustees
reach an agreement on Ear-
ly Restoration plans.
Several attendees, in-
cluding Walton County Dis-
trict 5 Commissioner Ceci-
lia Jones, indicated a keen


interest in the utilization of
local labor for projects.
' "We are very sensitive to
this issue," Drew responded.
Engineer Pearce Barrett of
DEP explained that there
is a local company prefer-
ence in connection with the
selection of consultants and
contractors.
Questioned on the time
line for project approval,
Drew said the goal is to
have the funds spent by the
end of the calendar year.
Officials and staff were
encouraged to let the trust-
ees know what problems
they are experiencing in
their areas, as studies on
natural resource losses are
ongoing.
"Keep the channels of
communication open," Drew
told the officials and staff.
"We commit to keep you as
informed as we can through
this process."

NRDA process is available
