WCSB talks contracts, conduct


and Walton Middle School plans


By ALICL4 LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB) met
at their regularly scheduled
meeting June 12 at 9 a.m.
at the Tivoli Administra-
tive Complex. They faced a
full agenda including items
covering Virtual School con-
tracts, public hearings on


organization charts, student
progression plans, and stu-
dent codes of conduct and
food service contracts, as
well as architectural pro-
posals for design and con-
struction on Walton Middle
School.
Two students made per-
fect scores on FCAT writing


in secondary school. Madi-
son Jones and Elizabeth
Burgess were both hon-
ored by the board for their
achievement.
The first business before
the board was to approve
the agenda and adoption
of minutes from the May 8
and 22 meetings. The board


WALTON MIDDLE SCHOOL Principal-Tripp-Hope presented-Elizabeth Burgess and
Madison Jones with plaques for their perfect writing scores on FCAT with Walton Counly
School Superintendent Carlene Anderson.


moved unanimously to ap-
prove both. Then the meet-
ing opened to public com-
meits, before Walton County
School Superintendent Car-
lene Anderson presented
the consent agenda for ap-
,proval. The board moved
unanimously to approve
the consent agenda before
them.
Under the action agenda;
Anderson recommended ap-
proval of the 2012-13 orga-
nization chart. The board
approved of the recommen-
dation unanimously, but
with board members Sharon
Roberts and Faye Leddon
commenting they approved
the chart with "reservations"
and were "not thrilled" with
their yes vote.
The recommendation of
the student code of conduct
with Roberts voting nay was
passed. Personnel recom-
mendations were approved
unanimously. The request
for approval of the 2012-13
negotiation team was ap-
proved with an amendment
of added emergency per-
sonnel to sit on the team if
needed due to absence or ill-
ness.
The public hearings were
opened and closed without
comment. The student pro-
gression plan was recom-


DFS City Council approves two new


airport hangar lease agreements


By REID TUCKER
The DeFuniak Springs
Municipal Airport could
soon have two new tenants
as the City Council voted
to begin drawing up lease'
agreements with two heli-
copter-related firms.
The Council members vot-
ed unanimously at its regu-
lar meeting on June 11 to
move toward bringing in the
pair of new businesses on
leases of one-to-three-year
terms at a rate of $1,000 per
.month.
The first firm focuses on
the repair of small helicop-
ters, the only such business
for hundreds of miles, but
a company representative
nevertheless requested that
the terms of the lease be for
one year as the availability
of work would rely on word'
getting out about the servic-
es offered by the firm. The
second firm holds eight gov-
ernment contracts, primar-
ily using its helicopters to
fight fires on military bases


in the area, though its 60
employees are spread out as
far west as California and
as far north as Washington
D.C.
James Raquel, owner
of TRG, the second firm,.
said his Gulf Breeze-based
business will likely expand
its portfolio rapidly in the
coming months as the Air
Force, the company's pri-
mary client, consolidates its
contracts. This means TRG
could expand its fleet from
one helicopter to three or
four plus a fixed-wing air--
craft. He said TRG could
theoretically support 15 or
so high-end, skill-intensive
jobs such as pilots and me-
chanics, with salaries aver-
aging in the $80,000 range
for the former and $65,000
for the latter.
It was decided that the'
lease agreements with
both firms would include
60-day right-of-rescission
clauses applicable to either
the city or the tenant. One


of the only requirements
of either firm was that the
hangars they aim to occupy
be equipped with modular
office space at the city's ex-
pense to help keep startup
costs down. Though a dollar
amount was not discussed
at the time of the meeting,
the Council\ agreed to have
city staff look into purchas-
ing trailers for use as office
space as future tenants at
the airport could make use
of them.
In other airport-related
news, the Council also voted
unanimously to award an
$837,380 contract for the
first phase of site develop-
ment at the location of a
new hangar. The Council
unanimously decided to
award an $88,840 contract
for the purpose of quality
assurance-focused on-site
inspection in relation to the
previous site, development
project. City Manager Sara
Bowers said 80 percent of
the funds needed for the


contracts come from Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion grants to the city.
Bowers also brought be-
fore the Council the renewal
of the city's agreement with
*theWalton County Heritage
Association, which operates
its museum at the site of
the old train depot on Circle
Drive. The Council voted 5-0
to re-up the agreement for a
five-year term.
City staff recommended
that the Council award a bid
for human resources con-
sulting services to Landrum
Professional Services, Inc.,
a Pensacola-based company.
The contract with Landrum
initially asked that 60 hours
of work be prorated at $130
per hour for its services,
but the Council decided to
change the agreement to
pay on an as-needed basis.
The Council members voted
4-1 to approve the contract.

mended for approval and
approved with a 4-1 vote
with Roberts being the dis-
senting vote.
The board then had the
request to secure represen-
tatidn for Anderson during
impasse procedures brought
before them. The board ap-
proved this request unani-
mously. Due to negotia-
tions reaching an impasse
between Anderson and the
two unions involved, a spe-
cial magistrate has been or-
dered to oversee the impasse
and Anderson will have to
have separate legal repre-
sentation for negotiations
in that process. The board

Habitat for

Humanity

home No. 24

built
Goes to St. Rita's
Parish family
By REID TUCKER
Changes in housing do
not get much more dramatic
than that experienced by
the Harrington family.
A month ago, Devin Har-
rigan and his three young
children were living in a
camper trailer without run-
ning water or air condition-
ing. On June 1 they moved
into a four-bedroom house
built free of charge and just
for them in 13 weeks by
Habitat for Humanity Wal-
ton County. The Harrigans'
new home, which sits just
600 feet from Habitat's Wal-
ton County headquarters in
Freeport, carries a market-
adjusted $100,000 price tag
and was constructed by 350
volunteers almost entirely
on' the 13 Saturdays be-
tween March 8 and the first
of June.
Habitat for Humanity
held a dedication ceremony
for the Harrigan family
amid the incessant rain of
that Saturday afternoon,
but the wet weather was not
enough to dampen either the
family's spirits or the enthu-
siasm of the volunteers in
attendance.
Harrigan and children
David, Joseph and Jessica
were joined at the dedica-
tion by his fiance Amanda
Meier and her two children,
Jacob'and Miranda, all of
whom shared extremely lim-
ited space in the one-room
camper for the past few
months before moving into
their new home. Despite the
hard times of even a month
ago, Harrigan maintained
a positive, jovial attitude in
light of what he called "one
of the biggest days of my
life."
"I was living off an ex-
tension cord," he .said,
chuckling. "We didn't even
have running water, so
we couldn't shower in the
camper. There were seven
of us sleeping on couches, on

Santa Rosa accident

injures Freeport man


I A Freeport man received
minor injuries in a Santa
Rosa County accident that
took place the afternoon of
June 5 on State Road 30
(U.S. 98) east of Shellfish
Drive., A Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) report stated
that a vehicle was traveling
east in the outside lane, tow-
ing a heavily-loaded trailer.
Driving the vehicle was Da-
vid Klafsaas, 63, of Panama
City Beach, with Theo Farn-
sworth, 43, of Freeport, as
passenger.
Klefsaas told investiga-
tors that a' gust of wind hit


the vehicle, causing it to
fishtail. The heavy load pre-
vented Klefsaas from main-
taining control and the vehi-
cle rotated, traveling off the
road and overturning. The
trailer did not overturn.

Both Klefsaas. and Farn-
worth received minor in-
juries, and were not trans-
ported for treatment. No
other persons or vehicles
were involved. The FHP re-
port stated that both were
wearing seatbelts, and that
alcohol was not a factor. No
charges are pending.

Elizabeth Brannon elected to board of

the Northwest Florida League of Cities


Bill Holloway also got the
Council's approval to ap-
prove the budgeted $58,380
purchase of an in-channel
screw screen compactor for
the city's wastewater treat-
ment facility. This equip-
ment, the installation of
which is required by the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection if the
city is to stay in compliance
with its wastewater treat-
ment permit, removes larg-
er solids and debris from the
wastewater flow before it
enters the treatment facility
and increases the efficiency
of operations at the plant.
The City Council also ap-
proved several ordinances
after their required second
reading at the meeting.
These ordinances included
one to give the city manag-
er the authority to suspend
workers without pay provid-
ed the Council can vote to,
overturn that decision. The
others repealed the propor-
tionate fair share ordinance,
as has been discussed at
length at previous meet-
ings, and the final one up-
_dated the concurrency man-
4gement section 'f fie city's '
'land development code.
The ordinance amending
the land development code
requires traffic analyses to
be carried out by applicants
for new use of or a new
building on otherwise "raw
land." The study must take,
into consideration the im-
pact of the new development
on traffic safety, capacity
increases and congestion.
FDOT does its own traffic
studies every few years to
determine a baseline traf-
fic capacity figure against
which applicants' analyses
will be measured.

Walton Middle School was
met with approval from the
Council after much discus-
sion. The School Board plans
to construct new buildings
at the school, eventually
replacing most of the ex-
tant structures ini an effort
to increase campus security
and to modernize the aging
facilities. The project, which
had its conceptual plan ap-
proved at the School Board's
Tuesday meeting, will be
undertaken in three to four
phases spread out over sev-
eral years.
The DeFuniak Springs
Police Department received
approval from the City Coun-
cil to transfer funds seized
as a result of criminal inves-
tigations to the city and to
establish two line-itemized
budgets for the expenditure
of those funds.
Finally, Councilman Ron
Kelley broached the idea of
having downtown's caboose
repainted as, in his words,
the vehicle was beginning
to look more pink than red.
Staff notified the Coun-
cil that the company from
'which the red paint was
bought claimed its paint was
fade-resistant and the city
is therefore seeking com-
pensation. Holloway told
the Council that a shade
of blue is being considered
when the time comes to re-
paint the caboose, as it was
originally that color and not
the red, or pink, 'it is now.

WCHD preparing for hurricane season


The Walton County
Health Department is con-
tinually preparing to support
the community during any
public health emergency..
Special needs' registration
is critical at this time due to
the fact that some patients
may not qualify for a special
needs shelter and may need
to make other plans. Wal-
ton County residents with
"special needs" and no other
sheltering options are asked
to pre-register now by con-
tacting the Walton County
Sheriffs Office at (850) 892-
8065.
"Families who have
members with special needs
should take measures now
to: ensure that they are pre-
pared for hurricane season."
said Holly Holt, Walton
County Health Department
Administrator.
Shelter occupants should
bring a 72 'hour supply of
food and water; clothing,
personal hygiene items,
and bedding; and personal
medical supplies. All medi-
cations should be in labeled


prescription bottles. In ad-
dition, shelter occupants
can expect the following:
Individual care is not
provided; clients must be ac-
companied,by a caretaker or
family member.
Space is limited, air
conditioning is not guaran-
teed, and back-up electricity
is available only for essen-
tial medical equipment and
light.
1 Special diets or foods
are not provided; an indi-
vidual. must bring non-per-
ishable food with them.
Complex medical equip-
ment and care is not avail-
able.


Service animals are al-
lowed. Their care is the re-
sponsibility of the owner.
Back-up oxygen tanks
are the responsibility of the
shelter client."
During any given storm
event, the Walton County
Health Department, 'upon
direction from the Walton
County Sheriffs Office Divi-
sion of Emergency Manage-
ment -may open a "Special
Needs Shelter" for' those
residents who cannot care
for themselves at a standard
evacuation shelter. When
a disaster occurs, special
needs, shelter registrants
should listen to local news


sources for information and
instructions.
The designated Special
Needs Shelter for Walton
County is Freeport High
School at 12612 U.S. Hwy
331 South in Freeport, FL.
To pre-register for the
Walton County Special
Needs Shelter, contact the
Walton County Sheriffs Of-
fice Division of Emergency
Management at (850) 892-

By BRUCE COLLIER

This week saw a joint meeting of the South Walton Tour-
ist Development Council (TDC) and the Walton County
Board of County Commissioners (BCC), reported on in this
edition. Despite concerns that something fast and shifty
was going to get done without adequate public input, the
meeting proved to be mostly public input. What got done
was that the TDC/BCC agreed to advertise bids to hire a fa-
cilitator to eAgage the public to discuss future TDC needs,
specifically a new visitor information center with adequate
parking and no mold problem. The phrase visioningg ses-
sions" was actually used. I understand what the phrase
means, I hear it often enough. It used to be called brain-
storming. I just wish I could shake the image of New Age
tribal gatherings with wooden flutes and mind-expanding
substances. Maybe some body paint and rooibos tea to help
the visioning.
Anyway, there were many voices, none without significa-
tion. One attendee asked "What is it that we really need?"
coupling her question with a suggestion that non-central-
ized visitor information might be preferable, possibly a mo-
bile information vehicle. Would that mean no new building
at all?
Another attendee, a regular correspondent to this page,
suggested that community consensus should be found. TDC
member Amy Wise-Coble asked the citizens to work with
the TDC, adding "there is truly no reason to attack." She
has the right to hope.
An interesting point, rather quickly passed over, was the
question of buying land for a new building. You may recall
that the Point Washington State Forest parcel the one
that won't be used would have been leased for 50 years,
at $1 per annum. TDC member Gus Andrews asked if the
BCC had the money to buy land. That was not a consider-
ation under the original proposal, but Commissioner Bran-
non reportedly said he understood the county would buy
the land. Commissioner Larry Jones followed up and said
that before anything like that would be done, there would
be public hearings. Yes, I suspect there will be, probably
after Mr. Brannon has, so to speak, left the building.
Most interesting of all to me was the apparent lack of
anyone standing up and saying, "let's leave, things as they
are," or, "bridge first, TDC building later." I suspect there
are more than a few Walton County citizens that think just
that. Whether you agree with those positions or not, if you
don't show up at meetings (or write letters to this fine pub-
lication) and express your opinion, all the public hearings
in the world aren't going to get your point across.
On the other hand, considering the embarrassingly low
turnout for the May 8 sales tax referendum, maybe the at-
tendance at the BCC/TDC meeting was a fair cross-section
of the Walton County electorate, at.least, those who actu-
ally give a rodent's hindquarters.

Editor:
I've lived in more places than Walton County but ev-
erywhere I've lived there seems to be a consensus that the
politics in that place top the list of being messed up and in-
efficient. Popular opinion around here wouldn't contradict
that. And it does seem like a group of unknown, power-
ful people is silently influencing what happens. Given hu-
man mortality that group of individuals must change with
time but the underlying feeling remains that some hidden
person or persons other than our elected representatives is
calling the shots.
Politics is the practice of compromise. We have govern-
ment to allow for a reasonably orderly process of prioritiz-
ing differing agendas but no matter how hard we try poli-
tics is a messy business. When people confront each other
someone is going to have to compromise or be disappointed
at the outcome.
Like minded people, developers, environmentalists, NIM-
BYs or whoever .can join together to help elect someone who

will champion their cause. In Walton County we elect five
commissioners who will then debate and compromise our
common interests. When this debate is open and accessible
to the voters we can abide by whatever decision is made.
But it is not right for that debate to happen behind closed
doors. Elected commissioners owe it to their constituents
to avoid discussion with each other outside of the sunshine
about issues that concern all of us. The recent dismissal
of the county manager makes me wonder how a decision
such as this could have been introduced and resolved with
no discussion and no public input. Why would a competent
employee be dismissed after just one year on the job with no
discussion among the board?
While the candidates consider what pledges they ought
to make to get elected I think they owe it to all of us to agree
to conduct discussions and decisions of issues concerning
all of us in plain view.

Editor:
Saturday night we had the privilege to attend the Digital
Graffiti festival qt Alys Beach. The displays of the digital
artistry were awe inspiring to say the least. The creative
arts will take your imagination to another level arid bring
out your appreciation for the artistic view. It was wonder-
ful seeing our friends from the Alys Beach community, VIE
magazine and friends from Walton County, and the many
visitors enjoying the exhibits. Thinking about all the tal-
ented people and cultural extravaganzas made available to


our community, makes one realize how very blessed we are
in our little corner of the world. Add to this the spectacular
event that took place this weekend and I feel almost over-
whelmed. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the 5th
,A..nqal .Digital Graffiti Festival i A lysBetl

I LETTER TO TH EEsDIBTORI


Editor:
I was watching the Fox News Morning Show recently
and Gov. Rick Scott was being interviewed regarding the
state of Florida in the process of suing the U.S. Department
of Homeland Security in order to access a database that
would verify the citizenship of residents as the state seeks
to wipe out noncitizens from its voter rolls.
Scott stated in the interview that after the state filed
suit, Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas E. Perez
slammed his office with a five-page letter, calling the state's
program "faulty."
Perez in the letter has passed the blame back on Gov.
Scott for ignoring warnings by the Justice Department,
(which I think should be changed to injustice department)
to stop the voter purge. He even threatened a suit as well
against the state in which he stated, "I have authorized the
initiation of an enforcement action against Florida in fed-
eral court."
"We have a right to this database," Florida Gov. Scott
stated. "It's supposed to be used for voting registration."
He said he looks forward to them giving us the database
but, again, we don't have a choice but to sue them.


Florida's lawsuit is part of Scott and, the state's effort to
remove illegals from voter rolls.
The Department of Justice has ordered the state to drop
the purge saying it likely violated voting laws, particular-
ly the National Voter Registration Act, which bans voter
purges within 90 days of a federal election. If they're refer-
ing to the November election, I have it figured a lot longer
than 90 days. More than five months actually. Do they re-
ally think the American people are that dumb. This is still
America or is it?
On June 8, the American Civil Liberties Union sued
Florida in federal court to stop the purge saying it unfairly
targeted minorities.
I'm thinking are you kidding me? This is the most ab-
surd thing I have ever heard. It seems they are trying to
turn all our laws inside out. I admire our governor for tak-
ing a stand and my prayers are with him that he wins this
battle for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
God Bless America

I ETE T HEEITOR


Editor:
First I'd like to applaud the taxpayer group on the beach
hoping to keep the co. administrator. A $200,000 eleven
month pleasure job for five people isn't bad. He didn't re-
turn my call about employment issues, but that was to be
expected. Not one person will address my issue. He can af-
ford a lawyer, I can't.
The tax and toll issue. We the people "Demand" Public
transportation for the tax. First funding source of course
is the TDC since tourism is the "only economy. Second,
source is the three County Comm Council. If they can run
around with one or two people on these mini-buses, this


waste will due too. All people of the county can gain, in-
cluding the co employees who 'use county vehicles back and
forth, the public workers to the only economy on the beach.
And it will stop the discrimination against the people by not
having representation at all these govn't meetings. Look at
the times of these meetings. They have them when people
haven't even arrived home yet. The poor like me would like
to come to a beach meeting. Your president and the dept of
justice should investigate this discrimination.

WALTON AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESIDENT Kellie Jo Kilberg (right, at head of table) addressed a1
small gathering of business owners, county representatives and the media at the Chamber's Chautauqua Hall of Brother-
hood office in DeFuniak Springs on Tuesday, June 12. Kilberg has been in the business of running chambers of commerce
for 23 years and comes to Walton County by way of Clay County. She looks to expand the county's high-skill/high-income
job market as those so-called "primary jobs" bring in new wealth which in turn is invested in to the community and sup-
ports the growth of secondary jobs. Kilberg said she supported the establishment of focus, groups to determine the types
of businesses and industry that would be the best fit for Walton County's four distinct communities as well as "shop local
campaigns" that aim to keep local money from leaking to other counties. (Photo by fReid Tucker)

Take a stand in the fight against elder abuse


By Kay Brady
June 15, is the seventh
annual World Elder Abuse
Awareness Day. Unfortu-
nately, it is estimated that
millions of U.S. elders, from
all walks of life, face abuse
and neglect every year.
The four main types of
abuse are physical, neglect
(can be self also) financial
or material exploitation and
emotional. Anyone can be
victimized. However, there
are things that a person can
do to help protect themself
from abuse and neglect.
Plan! Talk with family
members, friends, and pro-
fessionals that you trust
and plan for your future.
Consider doing the fol-
* lowing: Get your estate plan
in place. Have your income
(e.g. retirement, social secu-
rity, SSI, disability income)
directly deposited into an in-
dividual checking account.
Be cautious: Unscrupu-
lous people target seniors


and will abuse or take ad-
vantage of them. Consider
doing the following. Get on
the national do not call regis-
try to reduce telemarketing
calls. Visit www.donotcall.
gov, or call (888)382-1222-to
register a phone number. If
offered a prize, loan, invest-
ment, etc. that sounds too
good to be true, it probably
is too good to be true. Con-
sult with someone ,trusted
before making a large pur-
chase or investment. Don't
be pressured or intimidated
into immediate decisions.
Do not provide personal
information (e.g. social se-
curity number, credit card)
over the phone unless you
placed the call and know
with whom you are speak-
ing. Tear up or shred credit
card receipts, bank state-
ments, and financial records
before disposing of them in
the trash.

Walter Owens' newest invention


gets recommendation from LBW


auto mechanics instructor


By REID TUCKER
Walter Owens, who was
last year featured in The
Herald for his creation of a
static electricity-powered
generator, had another of
his inventions get notice,
this time from the halls of
academia.
Owens, 88, of Florala,
Ala., got the nod from Rich-
ard McCuistian, an auto
mechanics instructor at
the Andalusia, Ala.-based
Lurleen B. Wallace Commu-
nity College, for creating a
high-efficiency machine pos-
sibly suitable for automotive
powerplant applications.


Like the static electricity
generator and a number of
other inventions he built
over the course of his life,
Owens constructed the pro-
totype unit in his backyard
workshop and- then trans-
ported it in the bed of his
pickup to pay a visit to the
college, hopefully to have
the design signed off on by
an expert in the field.
In an email to an industry
colleague, McCuistian en-
dorsed the invention, which
uses a 7 horsepower butane
engine to spin an alternator
to charge a series of electri-
cal circuits. Those circuits


are connected to 10 coils
of electromagnets, which
in turn power a brushless
electric motor to spin an 80
pound flywheel connected to
an output shaft. The end re-
sult, as Owens and McCui-
stian figure it, is that the 7
horsepower input figure has
been multiplied more than
10 times to generate ap-
proximately 87 horsepower.
Owens said he extensively
tested the system, achieving
a record of 18 hours of con-
tinuous operation on only
five gallons of butane fuel,
or, put another way, the
equivalent to 1,800 miles


on five gallons of fuel. The
secret, Owens said, is that
the butane-powered engine
runs at a steady rpm with
all power to the flywheel
coming solely from the al-
ternator.
The working prototype
took Owens six years to
complete and it has gone
through many revisions be-
fore getting to the point it is
at, today. In his email, Mc-
Cuistian wrote that the de-
sigi is sound enough that,
with some refining, it could
be workable for applications
in the automotive industry.

ter-Hayes' artistic talents
began at an early age, cre-
ating things with his hands,
sometimes strange and then
beautifully.
For 46 years, he has used
porcelain colors as his medi-
um. A Phd of Art has helped
in with his teaching skills,
as an international artist
and teacher. Half the year
he spends teaching out-

The style of Hayes is free
and pleasing to the eye, giv-
ing moods to his paintings.
One thing he says is "once
it is perfect, twice you have

you have killed it." So re-
member that and go create

Deputy Director for Logistics Operations,


the Joint Staff, at the Pentagon visits WDE


"The world is one large
landscape of opportunity."
But Margaret Boor didn't
know that as a child grow-,
ing up in DeFuniak Springs,
Fla. In fact, she recalls that
girls her age only saw a few
choices for their futures:
graduate from high school,
get married, have children,
and maybe become a teach-
er or a nurse.
"When I was growing up,
it was unheard of to think,
of being a female general
officer," Boor told a class-
room of fifth-grade girls at
West DeFuniak Elementary
(WDE).
But that was before Boor
began her 35-year career in
the U.S. Army. And now, as
a major general working
at the Pentagon in' Wash-
ington, D.C., Boor dedicates
some of her free time to edu-
cating the children of her
hometown about the oppor-
tunities available to them.
"Sometimes we don't
know what we don't know,"
Boor told the students. "I
grew up in DeFuniak and I
didn't know about opportu-
nities. I discovered them af-
ter I left DeFuniak and I got
into the world."
Boor encouraged the girls
to start focusing on who they


want to be in the future.
Specifically, she encour-
aged the girls to identify
a mentor and a role model
whose attributes they want
to emulate and who will help
shape them into the women
they want to become.
During her visit, Boor
also shared the Soldier's
Creed with the students and
explained how the rules in-
cluded in the creed apply to
everything in life not only
to her and her fellow sol-
diers.
For example, while her
role as a soldier requires
her to place her Army mis-
sion first, Boor explained to
the girls that they have a
mission as well: to do their
very best in school and be
the best daughters they
can be at home. She also re-
minded them to never quit
and to never accept defeat.
"Quitting is easy," Boor told
the girls. "It's much harder
to work through something
tough."
She challenged the girls
to become lifelong learners,
saying that they should con-
sciously learn, something ev-
ery day.
. She also explained to the
girls that, though we may
not always recognize how


MARGARET BOOR, MAJOR GENERAL works at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and dedicates some of her free
time to educating the children of her hometown about the opportunities available to them.


much we have, "America is
the greatest country in the
world." She spoke of our
freedoms, and the opportu-
nities we have available to
us. And she challenged the
girls to give back. "As citi-
zens, we need to contribute
to each other, we need to
contribute to our communi-


ties, and we need to contrib-
ute to our country."'
One of the fifth grade girls
said Boor gave her a lot of
good information. "She was
very inspiring. She built my
confidence about being a girl
in DeFuniak Springs." *
Boor is currently the
Deputy Director for Logis-


tics Operations, the Joint
Staff, at the Pentagon. She
was commissioned as a sec-
ond lieutenant in 1980 after
serving three years as an
enlisted soldier. She began
her Army Reserve career in
1984. She graduated from
the Army War College in
2004, earning a master's de-


gree in strategic studies.
Her awards include the
Defense Superior Service
Medal, Bronze Star, Meri-
torious Service Medal with
two silver leaves and the
Army Commendation Med-
al with silver leaf. She also
earned the Senior Parachut-
ist Badge..

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JUNE 14,2012


My dad and I are a lot
alike-so much so that we
often butt heads (there's
something to that "opposites
attract, likes repel"). From
him, I inherited my height,
blonde hair, big smile, and
unwavering drive to do
things my way. We are so
similar, in fact, that when I
was in high school a teacher
who knew my father would
joke, "I don't know who your.
mother is, but you look noth-
ing like her."
The truth is I'm glad I'm
like my father in several
ways (at this very moment,
he is making plans to lami-
nate and frame, this article
so that whenever we dis-
agree, he can just point and
smile to the writing on the
wall).
My dad is a serious man,
but he has a great sense of
humor. From him, I learned
to laugh at myself and de-
fuse situations with a well-
timed joke.
He taught me to stand
up for myself, to say what
I mean and mean what I
say. In elementary school
I became very comfortable
asserting, "I have to go to
the bathroom. It may not be
bathroom break time, but
I'm going. If I'm in trouble,
just call my dad." That last
line later applied to speed-
ing tickets, miserly math
teachers, and the like.
He taught me to be a
steward and lover of nature,
always making sure the
hummingbird feeder was
full'and kicking back at.the
end of the day with toes in
the sugar white sands of the
Gulf.
He taught me that goals
are achievable, no matter at
what age they are realized.
He worked full-time with
a family while he earned a
Bachelor's and Master's (for
both he had to attend class-
es, no online oQption)., .,. .,..


He taught me to be
smart-to look at situations
from the grand scheme of
things, to protect myself, to
focus on the future and be
practical.
He taught me to let my
actions do the talking.
He taught me the most
important question to ask
on a first date: what is your
credit score?
He taught me more than
either of us realizes I'm
sure, and we're both still
learning.
With Father's Day be-
ing this weekend, I wanted
my dad to know that I am
grateful he is my father. I'm
proud to carry the Amason
name. I am proud that when
I meet people, they ask if
David-the basketball play-
er, the preacher, the hard
worker- is my father, then
follow with "He's a good guy"
or "He sure is nice," or "How
tall is he again?"
So here it is dad, in black.
and white, I love you. Roll
Tide!

the floor. We had to go next
door to my mother's house
to even cook food or use the
restroom."
Thanks to their
2,000-square foot home the
Harrigans no longer have
to worry about having beds
to sleep in, and those beds
and sundry furniture iternis
were all donated by the fam-
ily's fellow parishioners at
St. Rita Catholic Church.
However, donations from
the St. Rita's congregation
didn't stop there, as 100 per-
cent of the roughly $65,000
needed to fund the construc-
tion of the new home was
raised through the church's
long-time partnership with
Habitat for Humanity. As
resources are limited, the
Walton County branch of
Habitat begins new building
projects based on the need
of prospective applicants,
and the Harrigan family's
situation put them toward
the top of the list, said Har-
rigan's mother, Denise.
Harrigan and his mother
moved to Walton County in
1995 and have been mem-
bers of St. Rita's ever since.
Denise, who owns and oper-
ates a restaurant in Santa
Rosa Beach, said she espe-
cially appreciates the effort
of her church family since
she has for years raised
money through benefit din-
ners at her restaurant to
help other needy families in

the community.
"It's like the circle came
around," she said. "When
we needed help Habitat was
there for us. The whole com-
munity and our Saint Rita's
family really came together
to help us and we're very
thankful and appreciative.
It's been really touching."
In addition to the dona-
tion of money and manpower
from St. Rita's, the building
project owed its completion
to the work of 350 volunteers
from around the area as well
as several individuals from
the Air Force and other mil-
itary branches. Even some
college students on from
the University of Pittsburgh
and from Ave Maria Univer-
sity spent their spring break
time swinging a hammer on
the job sit instead of loung-
ing on the nearby beaches.
Habitat for Humanity
Walton County Construc-
tion Committee Chairman
Bill Remicke, who headed
up the construction, said the
lot where the home sits is in
a 130-plus-mph wind zone,
meaning the walls, roof
and windows all have to be
built to tougher standards
with heavier materials than
other Habitat homes further
inland. Due to the stringent
building requirements, the
house would' have been pro-
hibitively expensive had the
project not received other in-
kind donations of materials

JESSICA HARRIGAN (center) CELEBRATED HER 11TH BIRTHDAY on Saturday, June 12, at the dedication of her
family's new home. Jessica read a poem she wrote for the family in honor of the occasion. She said moving into the new
house was the best birthday present that she could ever have. She was joined by her family, Habitat Walton County Execu-
tive Director Teresa Imdieke (in yellow), and the Harrigans' pastor, Father Tom Collins of Saint Rita Catholic Church.

and supplies worth approxi-
mately .$25,000 from local
businesses, to say nothing
of the donation of the land
from a Freeport family, he
said.
Remicke, originally from
New England, like many


other volunteers on the
project now calls Sandestin
home. He started volunteer-
ing with Habitat for Human-
ity in 1997 and since that
time most of the homes he
has worked on have been lo-
cated in or around DeFuniak
Springs. Though that repre-
sents quite a hike for most
of Habitat's local volun-
teers, who predominantly
come from the south end of
the county, the distance to
and from a jobsite has not.
stopped Remicke and others
from doing their part to help
those in substandard hous-
ing conditions.
"My family has been very
fortunate because we've al-
ways had a good house,"
Remicke said. "I had a good
house in Massachusetts to
bring my kids up in and now
I live in a good area down
[in Sandestin]. The right


kind of housing is so impor-
tant to kids' development
and family life and there is
such a need for it in Walton
County. If I can help in a
very small way with a few
houses here and there that's
what I feel I should do."
The Harrigans' new home
is the 24th built for a Walton
County family and the first
in eight years built in the
Freeport area, as the ma-
jority in recent times have
been constructed in and
around DeFuniak Springs.
Other recent donations to
Habitat have spread east-
ward, including a donation
of 12 lots in the Mossy Head
area, lots that will eventu-
ally become the first Habi-
tat for Humanity-exclusive
housing development.
As for Harrigan, his wife-
to-be ,and their combined
five children, the process


of moving in isn't over yet.
There are still furniture and
new appliances to be bought
and a new routine to be es-
tablished getting back and
forth to work and school, but
all-in-all the family could
not be happier with the new
house it will work to make a
home.
"We've been out of swing
for so long that now we've
got to get back on our feet,"
Harrigan said. "It's going to
be a matter of filling in the
gaps, but I've had my kids
take me off to the side at dif-
ferent times to tell me how
happy they were that we had
gotten involved with Habi-
tat. For them there was a
lot of excitement at the huge
change of circumstances and
living conditions. It means a
lot as a parent for your kids
to come to you telling you
how happy they are."

Story and photos by
ALICIA LEONARD

Off a side road of Coy
Burgress Loop in DeFuniak
Springs, there is a path to
a small 'piece of organic,
home-grown heaven known
as Sun Crop Farm. -
David and Michaela Wat-
son, owners of Sun Crop,
have carved themselves, a
little Eden at the dead end
of Deer Run West and for
those that wish to, they can
have a little share of the
goodness that comes with
no pesticide use and smart
soil stewardship David ap-
plies to raising vegetables
and fruits of all kinds on his
property.
"We have lots of birds, and
lizards. They help with the
pest control, but the most
important part of keeping
the bad critters away is to
use good soil. You start with
good soil and everything
else is easier," David told
The Herald on a visit to the
farm.
The Watsons' farm does
not resemble commercial
farms. There are no super
clean rows and weeds are
not absent. Instead, David
uses nature to tame the un-
ruly, sometimes planting


crop's, like peas ("They're a
good source of nitrogen," he
adds) not to sell, but to turn
under and add nutrients
back into the ground. Davis
works with nature, and "not
against it," he said with as
a smile while showing .off
some of the different food
plots he has prepared for
this year.
"Sun Crop Farm was
never meant to get too big.
We just wanted to farm
naturally, in organic accor-
dance, and help people have
healthy food to eat. That's
what it is really about. I'd
travel to take one of my
customers a single tomato
if that's what they wanted.
I just want people to eat
healthy if possible," he said.
That is also what makes
the Watsons' farming so
special the personal touch.
Sun Crop works on a mem-
bership basis. The member-
ship is free, but limited to
around 35-60 people or fam-
ilies at a time. This helps
keep the produce fresh, cus-
tomers satisfied, and allows
the Watsons to deliver the
fresh, organic food to cus-
tomers' doorsteps or busi-
nesses and still operate on a
small, local scale.
The property is loaded


with fruit trees and differ-
ent vegetable plots. They
even have fresh eggs for cus-
tomers that like them. Crop
rotations and keeping on top
of soil and weather changes
keep a variety to the pro-
duce offered twice a year.
David has even delivered;
a box of his organic best to
California for a customer's
mother's birthday. "That's
when you know you've made
it in the organic world," he
jokes, "when you ship to
California."
Davis came from a long
line of farmers, helping his
father with his blueberry
business in Washington
County since 1968 but has
since found his own little
paradise in Walton County.
"We love it out here. I love
growing good food and see-
ing people enjoy it. That
means a lot to us both," He
adds.
Locals that are interested
in learning more about Sun
Crop Farm can go to their
web site at www.suncrop-
system.com or call (850)
419-0730 to speak with the
farmer himself. Readers bet-
ter hurry. This reporter has
already signed up for home
veggie delivery. Spaces are
limited.


THE RADISHES look ready for a salad. David Watson and wife, Michaela, can make
that happen with lots of salad greens to go along with these.


SPROUTS DON'T JUST sprout up. Brussels sprouts grow on a long stalk that has leaves
that are reminiscent of collard greens.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
I am aghast. No, really.
When did people lose their
manners? I know you're no
Miss Manners, but I thought
you might have a say on
what people are teaching
their children. Where did
the yes ma'am, no ma'am,
yes sir, no sir, please and
thank you go?
If I waited for a man to
hold a door open for me, I'd
eat the glass, face first, from
walking through it.
I don't know. if I can han-
dle one more spoiled rotten
grown-up or kid. I might
lose my manners if I have to
deal with it much more.
How does one handle
this? Any advice?
Miss Perturbed
Dear Miss Perturbed,
Yes, you are correct. I am
no Miss Manners. I burp and
scratch, although, I try not
to do it in public. But, I do
hold doors for male and fe-
male, say please, thank you
and you're welcome. Why do
I do these crazy things? Be-
cause it's how I was raised.
Parents are responsible for
manners. If they don't have
any, their kids won't either.
So, let this be a lesson to
parents. I have had more
doors in my life opened to me
because my parents taught
me manners, than any edu-
cation, car or fancy clothing
could have unlocked. When
parents teach their children
how to say "please" and
"thank you" they are giving
their children a chance at a
better life.
How do you know if that
elevator door you hold open
is a courtesy paid to the
president of the company
or the janitor? You don't,
and people that treat oth-
ers equally, unaware of
their station in life, will be
blessed if only by their own
action and kindness.
So, be an example. Hold


4,
-4


that door open, say thank
you and please and even be
nice to those that are rude.
Leading is the only way to
be less perturbed than you
are now. Good luck and God
bless.

Have a problem? Got
a question? Want to vent
about an issue and get some
feedback? She'd love to hear
what's on your mind. Send

Big, Fat,

Expensive

Weddings


BY RONNIE MCBRAYER

Last year when Kate Middleton walked down the aisle
of Westminster Abbey to marry Prince William Duke of
Cambridge, it marked the apex of one of the most expensive
weddings in history. The price tag on the royal nuptials was
more than $30 million dollars. That. as a deal compared to
the ceremony of William's parents.When adjusted for infla-
tion, the cos,of Charles and Lady Diana's rdig iteached
the rarified air of nine figures, surpass .irndid mil-
lion dollars. -
Though monarchs are rarely invpv every young
couple seems willing to pay a royal ra oE foj heir wed-
ding these days. Flowers, dresses, tuxedo ', psures, DJs,
cakes, catering services, coordinators..and venue rentals: It
all adds up to an average cost of more than $25,000.
I perform several weddings a year; especially in the
month of June. I see this matrimonial extravagance up
close and personal, even with couples and families that I
know can't afford it. This escalating trend for bigger, bet-
ter, more elaborate weddings troubles me.
It's not just the money (although the $25,000 might be
better utilized by making the! down payment on that first
home or by investing it with compounding interest for the
next 30 years). It's more the cavalier 'attitude about getting
married that makes me dread the gold-embossed invita-
tions to June nuptials.
Young, dreamy-eyed lovers come to the altar with their
pockets now empty (or their parents' pockets is more often
the case), but with their hearts andfheads filled with ideal-
istic hope, love, and romance for the future. This is all good,
for these wistful feelings .are the necessary fuel that will
first propel them forward together.
"I promise to love, honor, cherish and protect," they say
to each other, "and forsaking all others until death do us
part," the familiar vows continue. I think they mean it,
mostly. But I don't think many couples really know what
they are getting themselves into when they speak those
words not a clue they are simply unprepared for what
lies ahead.
See, here is the rub: Countless couples will invest more
money, energy, time, and planning into this single day of
their lives than they will their lives together. They fail to
see that an extravagant,. black-tie ritual that impresses the
neighbors does not a "'happily-ever-after" make. And if the
actual commitment of the bride and groom to each other is
about as substantial as the icing on their wedding cake -
sweet and buttery but hardly enduring then it is no won-
der that some ceremonies are still on the Visa card when
the divorce attorneys are put on retainer.
Now, I'm no pessimist' when it comes to love and mar-
riage. I'm a hotless, romantic believer. That's why I keep
showing up on-Iturday afternoons "in the presence of God
and these witriAses to join this couple in holy matrimony:"
There are still coriples who-speak t' a r vows with holy com-
mitment to and faith in one a ri.bth .
These couples know that marriage vows will not insulate
them from the trials of life, their in-laws, or job lay-offs.
They know a fancy ceremony will not pay the mortgage,
keep the electricity on, or ensure that the effects of econom-
ic recession will not invade their home. Their words will not
mean the end of sickness, disagreements, poverty, or any
variegated means of gut-wrenching suffering.
They enter their joined-together-life prepared; not for
every possible contingency. That's impossible. They are
prepared to stick together for much longer than the billing
cycle on .their wedding bills. Thus, these are couples who
have a real chance to experience the best wedding possible
- a wedding that'becomes a marriage.:
Yes, the "big day" is important, but the future is even
more so. Yes, the ceremony should be memorable (it will
be even if you only spend 200 bucks), but the decades that
will follow are where the real memories can be made. Yes, a
wedding is special and takes some commitment to pull off,
but a marriage is even more special, and it takes some com-
mitment as well.

Knowing God Intimately
Taken from a message given by Adrian Rogers


"And the LORD spake
unto Moses face to face, as
a man speaketh unto his
friend ... And Moses said
unto the LORD, Now there-
fore, I pray Thee, if I have
found grace in Thy sight,.
shew me now Thy way, that
I may know Thee, that I,
may find grace in Thy sight
... And He said, My presence
shall go with thee, and I will
give thee rest. And he (Mo-
ses) said unto Him (God),
If Thy presence go not with
me, carry us not up hence."
Exodus 33:11-15 (parenthe-
ses mine)
'In Exodus, Moses prayed,
"Lord, show me now Thy
way." And we read in Psalm
103:7 that his prayer was
answered: "He made known
His ways unto Moses, His
acts unto the children of
Israel." Notice, He made
known His ways to Moses.
He made known His acts, or
His works, to the children of
Israel. Moses knew God in
a way the rest of the people
didn't. The rest of the people
saw the works of God, but
Moses knew the ways of
God. They knew about God,
but Moses knew God inti-
mately.
One of the great problems
in today's churches is that
we have many who know
about God but few who know
God intimately. How sad it
will be in the resurrection to
meet a God face to face that
we have not known heart to
heart.
To Know God Intimate-
ly Is the Way of Rest

God says He will provide
rest to those who know Him


intimately. Verse fourteen
says, "My presence shall go
with thee, and I will give
thee rest." Now if you only
know God casually, if you
only see God outwardly, if
you only see God's works;
you will never have rest. As
a matter of fact, you will be
constantly pushing the pan-
ic button.
The children of Israel
were constantly frenetic,
worried, and murmuring.
They saw the works of God.
They saw God do His mir-
acles. They. saw Him open
the Red Sea, give manna in
the wilderness, and provide
water out of a rock. You'd
think they would have had
a heart full of rest, but they
were constantly murmuring.
They didn't know the ways
of God. All they knew were
the works of God. Listen to
Hebrews 3:10: "Wherefore I
was grieved with that gen-
eration, and said, They do
always err in their heart;
and they have not known
My ways. So I sware in My
wrath, They shall not enter
into My rest."
There is nothing that will
bring rest to your troubled
soul like an intimate knowl-
edge of God.
To Know God Intimate-
ly'Is the Way of Stability

Knowing God also provides
stability. Israel, who only
saw what God did, was fickle.
When Go,d opened that for-
ty-eight-lane superhighway
through the Red Sea, they
went through with towering
walls of water on either side.
They got to the other side,
and all that water tumbled


in on the Egyptians. Three
days later just three days
later they got out there
in the wilderness and were
murmuring. They were com-
plaining! They wanted to go
back to Egypt.
If you don't know God in-
timately, you'll not be a sta-
ble Christian. You'll be just
like Israel was. You'll blow
hot and cold.

To Know God Intimately
Is the Way of Necessity

Not only is knowing God a
good thing; it is a necessity.
While Moses was on Mt. Si-
nai, the people gave up on
God and built an idol. God
then told Moses He would
send an angel in front of
them and defeat their en-
emies (Exodus 33:1-2). But
He added in verse three:
"...I will not go up in the
midst of thee; for thou art a
stiffnecked people: lest I con-
sume thee in the way." He
said He would send them.


Boy, when Moses heard
that, a chill went over him.
And Moses replied, "God, if
you're not going, I'm not go-
ing."
Learn this and learn it
well. You can have provision
and protection, and still not
have God's presence. Now,
that ought to frighten you. A
lot of folks settle for eternal
security. They say, "Well,
I'm saved. I'm going to heav-
en. I don't want the intimate
presence of God..." How sad
- to know about God but
never really know Him.
Moses knew God because
he spoke to Him face to face.
You won't know God mere-
ly by studying about Him.
You will only know Him by
communion with Him face
to face. You cannot love a
person until you know his
ways, and you cannot know
his ways until you spend
time with him. That's what
a quiet time is all. about.'
You can't know God if you
don't spend time with Him.

lege in Mississippi, is pen-
ciled in as a starting cor-

executive director of opera-
tional support services, with
Bay District Schools, and
County Athletic Director

FSU bludgeoned Stanford
in a pair of games by scores
of 17-1 and 18-7.
Since the winless week in
Greensboro, N.C. attheACC
Tournament, the Seminoles
haven't lost. They swept
through the first round re-
gional and then hammered
Stanford (which started a
first-round pick in Game
1 and a third-round pick
in. Game 2) by a stagger-
ing combined score of 35-8
to advance to the College
World Series. The 35 runs
were nine more than any
team had ever scored in the
first two games of a Super
Regional series. In its past
five games Florida State has
outscored its opponents 50-
12.

The Gators got a strikeout
from reliever Keenan Kish
with the tying run at sec-
ond base in the 10th inning
on Sunday to sweep North
Carolina State in their Su-
per Regional. Florida's 9-8
victory sent the Gaines-
ville squad to their third
consecutive trip to Omaha
where they could meet FSU
in the title series if both can
get through their respective
four-team brackets.
Florida won the first
game of the series against
N.C. State 7-1 before a har-
rowing six-hour contest on
Sunday that saw a rain de-
lay of more than two hours
in the middle of the after-
noon.
The Gators, who are the
#1-seed overall, will have

seeds. OnyX once has a top
seed gone 'on to win the Col-
lege World Series: Miami in

By BEN GRAFTON
On Friday, June 8, at the
E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center
on SR-20, east of Freeport,
he staff of the Seacrest Wolf
Preserve from Chipley, Fla.
presented a program about
Gray Wolves. Seacrest dedi-
cates itself to providing a
rescue safe-haven and edu-
cation about these animals,
which, although not on the
endangered species list, still
need care and protection. As
a part of the program the
audience of several hun-
dred people were invited to


participate in a hands-on
encounter with three week
old Gray Wolf pups and
adult and infant Brown
Skunks. People of all ages
enjoyed and were thrilled by
this close-up encounter with
area wildlife.

Seacrest, located near Chip-
ley, Fla., on Saturday af-
ternoons. There are restric-
tions so contact Seacrest by
