Personnel questions


raised during special


WCSB meeting


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB) met
in a special second session
on June 27, at 5 p.m. to
discuss contracts, financial
summaries, budget amend-
ments, curriculum, school
safety, food services, per-
sonnel recommendations,
school handbooks and prop-
erty site improvements.
Chairperson Dennis A.
Wallace opened the meeting
and as a first piece of busi-
ness, brought the adoption
of prior meeting's minutes
to the board for June, 12
and May 29. Board member
Mark Davis made the mo-
tion to approve the minutes
and board member Mildred
Wilkerson seconded the mo-
tion. The board then moved
unanimously, 5-0, to adopt
the minutes.
The consent agenda then
came before the board with
the exception of the Food
Services Agreement, which
the board voted unanimous-
ly to move to the action
agenda portion of the meet-
ing.
Walton. County School
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson then recommend-
ed all items for approval by
the board under the consent
agenda..
The board approved the
consent agenda unanimous-
ly, but with Davis expressing
the need for clarification on
consent agenda item 16.02,
a, b,and c, expressing the
contract was for two years
and the payment for the con-
sultant service agreement
with Linda Walker was to
be paid out over two years.
Wilkerson also noted, that
one school, (Bay) had not
included a calendar in their.
handbook. Anderson noted
the discrepancy and the
consent agenda was passed


The action agenda
was presented next by Wal-
lace. Anderson recommend
all items on action agenda
for approval including the
food services addendum
moved from the consent
agenda at the start of the
meeting. Davis motioned
for acceptance of the action
agenda and Wilkerson sec-
onded the motion. Wallace
asked if this was the time
for public comments. Wal-
lace requested that public
comments be limited to two
minutes on personnel recom-
mendations. Murmurs could
be heard from the audience,
but no one stepped forward
to comment. Wallace called
for a vote. The board re-
sponded unanimously with
five ayes.
Next, the board discussed
the proposed job descrip-
tion of the pre-Kindergar-
ten lead instructional aid.
Afterwards, the board was
asked to share an itemized
personnel list from the pre-
vious approved item 9.01.
The person asked (no name
given) "I'm just asking for
the list. It's not on the agen-
da and they're not listed on
the web site."
Wallace responded, "I'm
just asking if anyone heard
when I called for public com-
ment." Wallace deferred to
WCSB Attorney Ben Holley
for confirmation. Holley re-
sponded "Personnel recom-
mendation names are never
listed on the agenda. Every
time they are listed they are
just like this." Holley was
responding to a comment
made by the person that
these names were public
record and should be listed
and the person expressed
concern they were being
withheld from the public.
Wallace expressed to


the commenter that he
just wanted to make sure
he: had followed procedure
and had asked for public
comments before the vote.
Board member Sharon Rob-
erts expressed to the board
and public, "Mr. Wallace,
in light of this lady making
arrangements to be here to-
night, if she had a particu-
lar. question, we would be
interested in entertaining
her question here tonight."
Anderson asked, "Can we
hear that under this item
,though?"
Roberts responded, "I
mean, I don't care if we fin-
ish this item or not. The lady
came all this way. I would
like to know what she had
to say."
Wallace stepped in and
said, "And I was about to
say that, and all. I'm saying
is we're on an agenda item.
You know we can finish this
agenda item and then go
back to that."
Roberts responded, "OK,
thank you."
'That's all I was saying,"
added Wallace. Roberts
said, "Thank you, Mr. Wal-
lace. I appreciate that."
More discussion ensued
between the commenter and
Wallace. Anderson and Hol-
ley can be heard interjecting
into the discussion that the
items had been approved by
a vote. The commenter re-
sponded that they could not
discern the number of the
agenda items and thought
the approval was for agenda
number five and not nine.
Wallace exclaimed, "Please
let me finish and I think I
can clarify everything here,
we are not trying to avoid
anything." The commenter
disagreed and said the board
tried to move the entire

The city also elected
three new councilmen, Ron
Kelley, Mac Work and Ker-

who placed economic devel-

of priorities when they took
office about a year ago. Kel-

growing the local economy

change.
"I think what the people
were hungering for when

COPE Center granted


2-1-1 certification


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JULY 5,2012


COPE Center (Chautau-
qua Offices of Psychother-
apy and Evaluation) was
recently granted certifica-
tion by the Florida Alliance
of Information and Referral
Services (FLAIRS) for the
right to run a 2-1-1 system
for this area.
The FLAIRS certification
adds Walton County to the
2-1-1 statewide central link-
age point for the provision of
quality health and human
service information through
most cell phone providers or
all landlines.
FLAIRS I&R (Informa-
tion and Referral) services
are a vital link in bringing
people and services together.
As a statewide association
of agencies and individuals,
FLAIRS members connect
elder help lines, child care
resource and referral pro-
viders, crisis hotlines, and
others who provide informa-
tion and referral services.
FLAIRS serve as the state-
wide mutual assistance net-
work.
This important certifica-
tion was the goal of Com-
munity Walton's November
2010 Catwalk 2-1-1 fund-


raiser that raised $17,000.
The proceeds collected
from the "Catwalk 2-1-1 Cal-
endar Auction & Event"
were presented to the COPE
Center in DeFuniak Springs
in November of 2011 sup-
porting implementation of
the 2-1-1 system primar-
ily in Walton County. This,
with other grant funding,
allowed COPE to set up the
System. Con-
necting people with critical
community services, the
COPE Helpline had already
been providing round-the-
clock, anonymous telephone
counseling to consumers in
crisis. With the successful
application and accredita-
tion process approved by
FLAIRS for the program,
the 2-1-1 services will now
include help with additional
essential human services
like locating training, em-
ployment, food pantries,
and assistance with aging
parents, addiction preven-
tion programs, affordable
housing options, and sup-
port groups.
"As an organization whose
mission is to 'alleviate suf-
fering by fostering solutions


through education, informa-
tion and intervention' we
see immediate benefits of
the 2-1-1 program and be-
lieve it is an essential way
to provide help to Walton
County residents in crisis"
said Jane Burns, Communi-
ty Walton's Chairperson for
211 Finance Fundraising, in
November of 2010.

The partnership of Com-
munity Walton and COPE
Center has resulted in this
enhanced service being of-
fered to the citizens and vis-
itors in the community.
"We will be the resource
for information and refer-
rals for those who may need
health and community care
in Walton County," said Ra-
chel R Gillis, COPE's CEO.
"Without the contributions
and efforts of donors and
concerned citizens such
as those from Community
Walton, and their Catwalk
volunteers we would not be
able to start up this vital ser-
vice to the community." For

QUESTIONS FROM PAGE 1-A


agenda as a whole. Davis re-
quested to finish the agenda
item before them and revisit
the earlier approved item
agenda. Davis requested the
9.01 action agenda item be
revisited. The board moved
unanimously to approve
this request. Wallace then
again asked for comments
to be limited to two minutes
and opened the floor to com-
ments on personnel recom-
mendations.
Another commenter,
Jamie Massey, expressed
that she was representing a
group of concerned parents
at the school, "we're request-
ing that you rescind the rec-
ommendation for Mr. Preast
for principal for South Wal-
ton." Davis responded that
the board could not rescind
a recommendation, only An-
derson could do so.
Massey turned her request
to Anderson saying that An-
derson had promised differ-
ent leadership at the school.
Anderson responded that
she had changed the guid-
ance counselor at the school
but that was not the admin-
istrative recommendation in
front of the board at the mo-
ment. A slightly heated ex-
change took place between
Massey and Anderson, with
Anderson responding, "I
take great care. in what I
promise, and I have added
an assistant principal with
high school experience."
Anderson was referring to
new Assistant Principal
Jonathan D'Avignon. An-
derson then said she would
not rescind her recommen-
dation for the personnel at
South Walton High School.
,Massey responded that it
was a "very unintelligent
recommendation."
Roberts asked Anderson
to explain to the group and
public her role in personnel
recommendations in differ-
ence to the school board's
role. "My role is to recom-
mend to the board a person
who must be certified and
qualified for a certified posi-
tion." Holley added, "Once
she makes a recommenda-
don, the board can only re-
ject it for certain and good
cause."
A resident of Freeport,
Rosemary Ragle, and candi-
date for Superintendent of
Schools, told the board she
was "most perplexed to see
the board add an adminis-
trative'assistant to the Tivoli
Complex" when other teach-
ers have not received even a
step-raise in the past. Ragle
also expressed concern if
the board was thinking of
adding administration, why
her staff was being asked to
vacate building one when
the district spent money to
retrofit the building for files
and the Exceptional Stu-
dent Education (ESE) staff
needed to have access to
confidential records. Davis
expressed questions about
the position and the pay-
ment of the position. Ander-
son explained that "There is
no increase. There is no ad-
ditional cost. This position is
paid from percentage's of dif-
ferent title monies. In fact,
there will be a reduction in
cost." Anderson explained


the rearrangement of sala-
ries and their job duties are
how their salary is paid out.
Brandy Hunt approached
the board and requested
that Anderson reconsider
keeping Beth Tucker as
principal at the school. "I
went to Paxton, my family
went to Paxton, my husband
went there. Other parents
and I agree, she is very un-
professional, you can never
get in touch with her, she's
not good for Paxton."
Shelia Franklin then ap-
proached the board and told
them she was there to "rep-
resent the silent majority
of teachers at Paxton. They
are concerned that the tem-
perament and the tone of the
environment, that is now
happening at our school in
Paxton, our community and
students have expressed
concern and because I have
nothing to lose in represent-
ing my friends and cowork-
ers by speaking up and they
are afraid their job will hit
the chopping block, which is
true, I am here to speak up
and inform the school board
what is going on." Franklin
presented the board with a
package of concerns from
the teachers. "Everyone is
concerned to-talk." Frank-
lin put together a packet of
dates, comments and other
items she was to fax to the
board the following day.
Westside Baptist Church
in Florala, Ala., Pastor Phil
McMillian spoke on behalf
of Franklin, who had just
spoken, over her dismissal
and requested the board to
reconsider her situation.
Personnel recommenda-
tions came back before the
board for a vote, Davis also
abstained from a separate
vote on two relatives that
were listed in the person-
nel recommendations. Da-
vis was able to vote on the
other personnel recommen-
dations. The first vote went
forward 4-0 with an absten-
tion from Davis. The
second vote was seconded
and opened for discussion,
which board member Faye
Leddon, who asked if the
employees who had been dis-
cussed by parents that night
could be separated from the
other recommendations.
Holley responded that only
the superintendent could
do that and even then they
would have to show good
cause. "If that good cause is
not sufficient, then that can
go in front of an an adminis-
trative law judge and we've
been down that road before,"
Holley said.
Roberts asked that Hol-
ley's statement be "spread"
on the record. Davis request-
ed if they could be voted on
separately. Leddon asked if
the vote on those individu-
als could be voted on later, if
the parents could show good
cause. Wallace requested
what was the threshold of
good cause. Holley respond-
ed, 'It's a pretty stiff thresh-
old. You have to show that
they are not competent to do
the job. It has to be based on
facts and not opinions or ap-
proval."
Wallace then questioned
the rules of how to amend


the list for the vote if they
wanted. Roberts asked to
clarify the vote, and Holley
explained that any member
could vote to remove names
from the list, but they would
have to show good cause to
remove the employee from
their position. "You're gonna
have to have good cause any
time you go against the su-
perintendent's recommen-
dation," Holley explained.
Wallace called for the ques-
tion but Roberts requested a
recess to look at information
and Wilkerson agreed. A
15-minute recess was called
to look over the informa-
tion Franklin brought to the
board.
Wallace came back and
told the audience that they
took the recess to look at
information and see if they
would be provided anything
that would show. good cause
for the two names on the list
of complaints. He continued,
"we have been provided that
for one name, but not for the
other name. We had a mo-
tion and a second on the re-
cess. I'm going to call for the
question, if someone wishes
they can make a motion to
table. Holley said a motion
to table would freeze all the
names on the list.
Leddon asked Holleyifthe
petition they had received
would be considered good
cause. Holley responded, "I
don't think it is good cause.
The petition requested that
the WCSB remove Beth
Tucker from principal and
send her to another school.
If she's qualified to serve at
another school, she's quali-
fied for this school. The peo-
ple who signed the petition
indicate they think she is
qualified to be a principal at
some other school."
Roberts asked Holley,
"So you don't think it would
stand up?"
Holley responded, "I don't
think it would, but the board \
members are the ones who
have to decide." Wallace re-
sponded that he was doing
his best to follow Robert's
Rules of Order. Wilkerson
asked for more clarifica-
tion. The board was voting
on only the superintendents
recommendations. The
board voted unanimously to
pass to approve the recom-
mendations, but with Rob-
erts requesting that it be
recorded that she only voted
yes due to the attorney's ad-
vice and followed her legal
representation's advice.
The board then moved to
the school handbooks and
the board, and Anderson ex-
plained that the Bay School
calendar would be added at
a later date. The board ap-
proved the school handbooks
unanimously.
The board then moved to
approve the Food Service
Agreement for bulk pur-
chasing with Power Buy-
ing Group. The board voted
unanimously to approve the
contract unanimously 5-0.

tive personnel approved

FORMER SECRETARY of the FDOT Ben G. Watts accepts the honoirof having a section
of U.S. 90 named for him.




Section of U.S. 90 named


for Walton County resident


The Florida Department
of Transportation (DOT)
last week bestowed an honor
on. Walton County resident
(and Chipley native) Ben G.
Watts. The section of U.S.
90 from the Jackson County
line to the Holmes County
line (in Washington County)
has been named "Ben G.
Watts Highway."

The honor comes as a
tribute to Watts's career in
public service, Watts served
as secretary of the Florida
DOT from 1989-1997. He
is a registered professional


engineer, and a graduate of
the U.S. Military Academy
at West Point. His career
includes service with the
Army Corp of Engineers as
well as DOT.
The naming ceremony
and unveiling of the official
road sign took place at the
Washington County Agricul-
tural Center. Guests includ-
ed current DOT Secretary
Ananth Prasad, State Rep.
Brad Drake, Watts and his
family. Speaking at the cer-
emony, Prasad and Drake
both praised Watts' exem-
plary career and service at


various levels, including
roadway maintenance engi-
neer, deputy engineer and
district secretary. The idea
of naming the stretch of
road for Watts initially came
from Jane Potter, Watt's
former English teacher at
Chipley High School. Potter
was reported as saying, I
knew [Watts] would excel in
life and be a leader."

Speaking at the ceremo-
ny, Watts reminisced, and
called U.S. 90 "the street of
dreams into, and out of, our
world."

Don't Just Watch


the Fireworks

By BRUCE COLLIER

"The day will be the most memorable in America. I am
apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding genera-
tions as the great anniversary festival...it ought to be solem-
nized with pomp and parade...bonfires and illuminations
(fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from
this day forward, forevermore."
In case they aren't teaching John Adams anymore in
school, except as a mini-series to fill class time, the above
quote by him is often cited as the reason we have fireworks
on the Fourth of July. I suspect Adams himself had seen
some pyrotechnics displayed in Boston when it was still
British territory, and had acquired a taste for them.
Most newspapers and news organizations will have some-
thing to say about what we ought to be doing and thinking
on the anniversary of our nation's independence we are
236 this year and I am not going to buck tradition.
I am probably going to catch a live concert with my wife
and our 17-month-old daughter. It will be her first, and I
hope she loves live music as much as her parents. There
will be fireworks, and I hope the bright colors will outweigh
any fear she might have of the noise and smoke. Me, I don't
remember ever not loving fireworks.
We will not be alone. In fact, whatever the opposite of
.alone is, that will be us. If I could make a fireworks re-
quest, I'd ask for a big tableau, the kind they reserve for
the grand finale, where for some reason most orchestras
are playing Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Why a piece that
commemorates the Battle of Borodino, fought by the Rus-
sians against the French, should be played on America's
birthday is a puzzle, cannons notwithstanding. My request-
ed tableau, in red, white and blue, would read: "VOTE! OR
ELSE!" I would ask for an image of Abraham Lincoln, but it
would probably just make half the crowd think of vampires,
so let's stick to the three little words.
Vote, or else. There's a county primary in August, a coun-
ty election and presidential election in November, and
they're coming faster than Paul Revere on a fresh horse.
Last time the people were.asked-to express their will (May
8), 83 percent of the qualified electorate apparently had to
wash their hair that day. Maybe Paul Revere should have
stayed home and polished his silver. At least we'd all have
cool British accents.
Voting is so easy to do. Maybe it's too easy. Maybe we
should make a video game of it, or an iPhone app. You de-
cide you're going to cast your ballot. You press "Go" on the
app, and a signal is sent to your precinct. The precinct dis-
patches an interceptor force. It could be androids, trans-
formers, ninjas, vampires, Nazis, Al-Qaeda, or Redcoats,
your choice. They swarm around you, blocking your every
attempt to exercise your rights. If you can't cast a vote in,
say, three tries, Game Over. Better luck next time. Only
those willing to get in there and virtually fight for their
virtual rights could exercise their virtual franchise.
Unfortunately, the elections aren't virtual. All it takes
is a handful of votes, a little handful here, a bigger hand-
ful there, and candidates get elected, issues stand or fall,
whether everyone votes or not. As good as an old fashioned
swell of pride and lump in the throat may feel on days like
the Fourth, those are just emotions. You don't have to get
up from your chair to feel them.
But you do have to get up from your chair to vote. John
Adams would want you to vote. From what I've read about
him, he'd give you a stern lecture if he knew you didn't vote.
As for those thousands of Americans who died fighting to
protect your right to vote, well, maybe they won't find out.
Wouldn't it be easier just to vote?

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY JULY 5, 2012


"In the truest sense; freedom cannot

be bestowed; it must be achieved."
". T^--T1.11 1 T ......-. l+


r- ETTR T TH EITOR-


Editor:

What was the Supreme Court thinking? Don'tthey re-
alize the tremendous advantage of not providing decent
health care to our citizens? If they would only allow the
42,000,000 people without health care to die, it would solve
all of our problems.
We have a population explosion in our great country.
If the death rate is allowed to increase, it would not only
lower the population, but it would ease traffic congestion,
shorten the lines at Wal-Mart, and reduce the waiting time
in the doctor's office for those of us who do have health care.
The unemployment rate would drop as the uninsured die
off creating job openings.
Not to mention global warming. With fewer people ex-


haling carbon dioxide, driving cars and machinery, eating
beef, and requiring green space to live, the amount of green
House gases would go down and climate change would end.
Let's not forget the elderly. While we are at it, we should
do away with Medicare. Without Medicare, the life span of
Americans would be sharply lowered thus relieving the So-
cial Security burden on the tax payer. The need for nursing
homes would be reduced and we could remove those pesky
disabled parking signs that are everywhere.
To me, the really scary thing is that some people will
read this letter and think it is a good idea.

I L TTE TO THE EDI OR


Editor:
This is in response to a letter (p.4A) and an article (p.2A)
appearing in the May 31, 2012, issue of the Herald regard-
ing the Confederate Battle Flag (CBF) which flies from a
pole on the grounds of the Walton County Courthouse. The
CBF is flown in recognition of the sacrifices our county an-
cestors made in defense of our homeland when they were
faced by an invader having "overwhelming numbers and
resources." Flying the flag under which they served is en-
tirely appropriate. The battles of Olustee and Marianna
were fought in Florida.
The CBF was designed and adopted by the Confederate
military forces in the early part of the war to avoid past
confusion caused by the similarity of the Confederate 1st
National (commonly known as the "Stars and Bars") to the
"Stars and Stripes" flag used by the invading forces. The
CBF was used to identify ground and naval forces of the


Confederate States. By acts of the Confederate congress,
the CBF was made a part of the 2nd and 3rd National flags
of the Confederate States. The United Confederate Veter-
ans used the CBF as their flag.
No one owns a copyright on the CBF. It can be used for
good or not-so-good purposes. The government which it
served was strangled in its crib. The men and women in
gray who served that government under the CBF have all
departed this life, but they upheld their duty and honor
while on earth.
The song "Dixie" also a favorite of Confederate Southern
Americans, was sent to the politically correct gallows long
ago. Most CBFs have been removed from display. These
events bode ill for liberty.

Sincerely yours,
James M. Crawford

I 0OT I TOR I


Editor:
I am ashamed of our congress. I am ashamed of the
people we have in place that are supposed to stand up and
support us on Capitol Hill. I am ashamed that what started
out as a nation that was to be an example to other coun-
tries that democracy works and the people are capable of an
equal and righteous government, has failed miserably.
A few years ago there was a vote on a new health care
bill. A bill that was supposed to revolutionize the way we
managed our health care system. For months you heard
from different people what were the pros and cons of the
bill being passed or cut down. Even then, what most people
failed to realize, and never became as apparent, because
let's face it; C-SPAN is not as exciting as HBO or CSI, was
that everything you heard was a one sided argument based
on a political agenda.
I watched the bill as it came on the floor and the argu-
ments following as to why it should or should not be passed.
What was said the most was not, "this is why it benefits the
people I represent," or, "this is the problems it will cause
for the people of my state." Instead this was the main argu-
ment, "republicans believe," or "democrats believe."
Every argument made on this bill was made about an
agenda, a campaign, a party side. Not everyone has HLN,
CNN, or FOX News. Many local stations cannot run hour
long feeds on political news. Not many people would prob-
ably watch if they did. Not everyone has a computer, inter-
net, or would know where to go to even read the bill in an
unbiased setting. Most everything that the majority of peo-
ple hear is based on what the ruling political party wants
them to hear for their region.
I did my own research on the bill. There are benefits
and pitfalls. I am also unbiased to political parties unlike
most people. I was determined, especially after watching
the vote, to know what the bill was about. I am, again, not
most people.
Now, this morning, I watched as the Supreme Court


passed the ruling that the bill would stay in place with mi-
nor changes. I have yet to look at these changes, waiting
until they are settled and all changes made and perma-
nently put in place. The shame I feel for our government,
however, has not changed.
Upon the public announcement of the ruling, Mitt Rom-
ney has got on his platform and declared he will have the
bill shut down if he wins. He has yet to say one thing about
why. I have watched Democrats get on their platforms and
state how big a win it is for their party. Not one has said
why. Republicans have stood up and said they will fight to
have the bill shut down. Once again, not one explanation
served as to why.
As for the bill,, it is not a bad idea. That is my opinion
though. I think everyone should do their own research. Like
all major reforms in government, it is a beginning, and no
beginning is perfect.
Anyone who is ever done a project has at some point
looked back and thought about what could be different, be
better. This bill is no different. The sad thing is, most peo-
ple never know all sides.
As for the government and current politicians. This is
NOT about YOUR campaign. It is NOT about your politi-
cal party. IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BOTTOM
LINE. It is about the people you represent. It is about the
people YOU promised to protect from injustice. It is about
the government YOU SWORE to uphold when you were
sworn in.
That said, I will get off my soapbox. I ask though, please,
before you make up your mind, read the bill for yourself. Do
your own research. Do not rely on what you see and hear.
Make your decision. If you do not like the way you were rep-
resented, say something. Democracy means for the people,
not the personal agendas of those we elect.
Thank you,
Elizabeth Kirkland
DeFuniak Springs, FL


I ETERTOTH EITOR


Editor:
I am a Democrat and a disabled Vietnam Veteran. I saw
the article in last Thursday's newspaper. Let me tell you
the truth abut President Obama. What medical package
did he help pass? If it wasn't for the VA, I would not be able
to pay for medical bills and then I only get to see a doctor
twice a year. People take their dogs and cats to the vet more
often then I get medical care. The price of gas and food are
at a price that many people cannot afford. On the Coun-
try Store people are asking for help paying electric bills or
they're having to sell their cars and trucks, because they
can not buy the gas to run them.
The unemployment rate is at 10 percent and many peo-
ple work two jobs. When are all the soldiers that were going


to come home last year? Bring our boys home now. The war
is over, we do not need to be in Iraq. I believe that until we
put a Christian back in as president, this country will not
be blessed again. All these problems we are having today is
because God is not happy with who our president is. How
can we say God Bless America? When God is no longer in
charge. Obama is for gays and abortion. As a Christian the
Bible tells me that it is a sin. Thou shalt not kill one of my
children. What you do unto them, you do unto me. When I
return you will be thrown into a pit in hell. Only one person
who passed a law in favor of abortion was Hitler.

Approximately 50 attend-

bers on Thursday evening,
June 28, to conclude a five-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JULY 5,2012


The humorous e-card
companies warned us in
the wake of the Supreme
Court's passage of Obama-
care, "Brace yourselves. Ev-
eryone on Facebook is about
to become a constitutional
scholar," and they did,
whether their opinion was
coherent or not, much less
constitutionally sound.
Thing is, I'm not a consti-
tutional scholar. The editor
of the Herald-Breeze, Bruce
Collier, a former lawyer, is
much more versed and com-
petent in discussing this
topic, and I look forward
to reading any editorial he
writes on the subject. Yet
the landmark decision up-
holding Obamacare is one of
interest because it affects us
all; exactly how, we may not
know until 2014, and that's
only if the Democrats hold
onto the White House and
Congress.
In a recent report, only 6
percent of Americans claim
to believe that healthcare is
the most important national
issue. The focus, according
to polls, is on the economy,
jpb creation, and govern-
ment spending. Healthcare
ranks near the bottom of the
list for more than 90 percent
of Americans.
In its basic form, the cov-
erage offered does not ap-
pear much different than
the Medicaid and Medicare
bills President Lyndon B.
Johnson signed into law in
1965, at which time John-
son was accused of being a
socialist for implementing
national healthcare options,
which were "funded entirely
by the federal government
and paid forin part through
payroll taxes... [and have]
cost taxpayers billions of
dollars." In fact, the first
person to'receive a Medicare
.card was President Harry S.
.Truman, also the firstpresi-
-ient to ever proIose iation-
alized healthcare.


The keystone difference
is the mandate-I mean tax
(which is a matter of slick
wording, the way "Let's eat,
grandpa!" has a very dif-
ferent meaning depending
on how one looks at it: din-
ner in Mayberry or zombie
apocalypse?)-that all citi-
zens must purchase health-
care or pay an annual pen-
alty of $95 or 1 percent of
their income. Therefore, the
average young, healthy per-
son will subsidize healthcare
costs for the average elder-
ly, ill person, same way the
average, working taxpayer
now subsidizes or provides
free healthcare for low-in-
come or uninsured persons,
in addition to illegal aliens
and the fraudulent via Med-
icaid and Medicare, which
according to the state web-
site, Florida has the second
highest number of Medicaid
recipients in the country.
Under the Obamacare
Act, Medicaid would expand
its eligibility requirements,
allowing more people to par-
take in the program, begin-
ning in 2014.
On a humanitarian level,
the notion that all people de-
serve healthcare is right up
there with "life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness."
After all, not a whole lot of
liberty and happiness are
going on if the life is drained
out of a person and no one
will do CPR because he left
his Blue Cross/Blue Shield
card .in his other pants.
Thus one part of me thinks,
"High-five for addressing
the better angels of human
nature and taking a step to
preserve the most basic ne-
cessities of life."
The other part of me,
however, is aware that the
potential for corruption is al-
ways, great, and just as oth-
er federally-funded health-
care programs are racked
with fraud and subsequent-
ly place colossal strain on


state and federal budgets,
this one will too. That part
of me shakes my head and
thinks "What a cluster this
will be...do I have to look
at my new health insur-
ance premiums, because if I
faint I am not sure I will be
able to afford the emergency
room visit to treat my con-
cussion."
Certainly, there will be
debates and appeals, opt-
out options and potential
repeals, and constitutional
conversation which I will


not feign to comprehend,
but at the end of the day it
simply leaves a bad taste in
my mouth that my elected
officials can dictate what I
must purchase. That seems
an awful lot like the course
of action other types of gov-
ernment, those from which
America has always sepa-
rated itself, would enact.
Sounds like a slippery slope,
and as far as America is in
the hole, we don't need any
more obstacles on the climb
out.


Editor:
June 28, 2012 is a day that will go down in history, as
the day the U.S. Constitution was pretty much destroyed.
Hopefully it is momentary. On this day America became
more or less a socialist nation. Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are
dancing in the streets hoping that we the people will just
give up and surrender our great country to their socialist
agenda. I was so shocked when I heard the Supreme Court
had upheld ObamaCare as a tax under the "Taxing and
Spending Clause," which will make it the largest tax bill '
ever passed, and is hid under the 2,700 pages of "Obama-
Care." We are soon to find out, just how much we will be
taxed. He sure can't run his campaign on "no new taxes"
this time around.
I watched for a few minutes and couldn't take anymore.
I turned off all the news media and spent the day grieving,
not necessarily for. myself, but for our children and grand-
children.
The respect I once had for our nation's highest court
system was lost based upon this ruling. So, the bottom line
is that Chief Justice John Roberts, along with the four lib-
eral justices, has opted out of the battle to retain the con-
stitution as the founders laid out for us to follow, and has
thrown the baby out with the bath water. I never realized
a nation could go down so fast. It is a sad day for America.
It is ironic that on July 4th we're to go along with busi-
ness as usual.and celebrate "Independence Day," when just
a week before our independence was taken away. I suppose
now they will declare this day (June 28) as "Dependence
Day." Half of the U.S. citizens are already dependent on the
federal government and who knows how many illegal al-
liens. The other half of us (the working class) will be taxed
to death.
We do have one last chance to get it right. It should give
all true patriots and citizens of this U.S.A. a greater desire
to go to the polls and vote come November for candidates
that love America instead of spending all their time trying
to destroy it. If we don't get it right come November, it will
go down as the biggest tax burden ever in the history of the
U.S.
I can't help but wonder if the sleeping giant will wake
up to what is taking place before it is too late. That is my
prayer. I still believe in divine intervention. That's where
my hope is.
God Bless America

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JULY 5,2012


FUTURE

development, Kelley said.
Though the aforementioned
big name retail stores, Trac-
tor Supply Company, Hib-
bett Sports and Taco Bell,
will likely lead the way in
the area of job creation (to
the tune of an estimated
100-150 jobs), Kelley said
small businesses in the area
have already begun to fol-
low suit. Several such busi-
nesses, ranging from tan-
ning salons to restaurants
to outdoor equipment retail-
ers, opened in the last year
but have mainly filled exist-
ing but vacant properties.
Tractor Supply Company
and Hibbett Sports will take
the same tact, as they are
set to renovate and occupy
the former site of the Mar-
vin's hardware store in the
Walton Commons shopping
plaza.
Kelley, who was elected
in April of 2011, said the
City Council has done its
part by aggressively recruit-
ing businesses to. move to
the area and by passing a
moratorium on impact fees
and a newer, less restrictive
sign ordinance.
Furthermore, cash in-
centives from Gulf Power


Recently, the Walton
County Sheriffs Office
(WCSO) has received nu-
merous reports of email ad-
dresses being "hacked." The
WCSO advises citizens of
tips they can follow make
themselves safer in a world
that is trending towards "cy-
ber crime."
As computers advance in
processing power, it is nec-
essary for our passwords to
advance as well. Most peo-
ple pick a password that is
less than eight characters
long (example: puppy001)
that can be cracked in three
hours using a standard
desktop computer. To suc-
cessfully pick a strong pass-
word follow this simple pro-
cedure:
Look around and pick
three items in your vicinity.
Example: A tree, a book, and
a dog are within sight. The
password you would have is:
treebookdog Cracking time:
169 days!
For good measure you
should always capitalize
one letter of your password
and include a number some-
where. Now your password
is:. Treebookdogl Cracking
time: 408,000 years!
Add a special character
(example: any punctuation)
for bonus points. Now your
password is: Treebookdogl!
This password has an esti-
mated cracking time of 423
million years! You can try
passwords to see how secure
they are at howsecureismy-
password.net/..
It is now suggested that
you pick a very strong pass-
word and write it down for
storage in a secure area.
People have been taught to
never write down the myr-
iad of passwords that web-
sites require you to create.
Because computers have
advanced rapidly, many
password rules have been
turned upside down. Un-
der a keyboard or taped to a.
monitor is not a secure area!
Most IT professionals use
some sort of reputable pass-
word management software
to keep all their passwords
secure with a single master
password.
The single most impor-
tant rule to follow is to only
use a password once. Do
not use the same password
for Facebook, your bank ac-
count, and your email ac-
count! This will limit your
exposure if hackers crack
one of your passwords. It
is strongly advised against
letting Internet Explorer,
Firefox, or Google Chrome
remember your passwords.
When your computer is in-
fected with a virus, those

have helped attract new
businesses fill empty build-
ings around town. While
these openings are welcome,
Kelley said real economic
growth means an increase
in the number of people put
to work and that means
bringing in new industry al-
together, not simply filling
in the gaps.
Kelley pointed to the un-
finished and unoccupied in-
dustrial park in Mossy Head
as an example of what hap-
pens when some but not all
resources are in place to re-
ceive the kinds of firms that
would otherwise make use
of a prime location. What
is needed to bring in com-
panies, especially those ca-
pable of hiring lots of work-
ers, such as manufacturing
or distribution firms, is land
development and updated
infrastructure, he said.
"When it comes to growth
you're either going forward
or you're going backward,"
Kelley said. "Part of the
problem is that we try to ap-
ply short-term fixes to long-
term problems, knowing
that we're kicking the can
down the road. You've got to
think long-term. If we have


an industrial park then we
can have industry. If we
don't offer it then just down
the highway there will be a
community who will gladly
do it just to have that indus-
try move in there."
Looking ahead to his
next three years on the City
Council, Kelley said projects
to update the city's infra-
structure will continue to be
a priority for him. However,
he said replacing the re-
maining ceramic water and
sewer pipes and repaving
streets are only steps in the
right direction, as the real
opportunities for diversify-
ing the city's business port-
folio will come only when
the Florida Department of
Transportation's U.S. 331
widening project is complet-
ed.
Kelley said the local
economy is poised to take off
like never before once that
long-sought goal is achieved
within a few years' time, but
the specters of urban sprawl
brought on by the possible
explosion of new industry
do not seem to bother Kelley
much. The U.S. 331 project
is not guaranteed to begin
until at least 2015, though


words. A rogue family mem-
ber, friend, or hacker can
use the stored passwords to
gain access to sensitive in-
formation or post something

Access to your email ac-
count is'a treasure trove of
information for hackers. As
with the case of several high
profile celebrities, posting
personal information on-
line allows hackers to easily


it may start before then if
state funds are freed up.
He said the city is poised
to sidestep the a potential
problems associated with a
large increase in the num-
ber of people or businesses
moving in because, unlike
other nearby communities,
DeFuniak Springs is neither
overbuilt nor short on time
to expand infrastructure to
meet the city's needs.
What is more, Kelley
does not believe that ex-
panding the city's economic
base necessarily means do-
ing away with one of De-
Funiak's greatest assets: its
longstanding cultural heri-
tage and small-town atmo-
sphere.
"We may need to put a
fresh coat of paint on a build-
ing, but we're not going to
change the character of the
community wholesale," Kel-
ley said. "I believe we can
both maintain and preserve
that [character] while still
bringing in new business.
I see good things ahead for
us. We've got room to grow,
we've got time and we have
a positive attitude toward
business in government. All
of those things together give
me a lot of confidence for our
future."

Methamphetamine lab


located in Freeport


On Wednesday June 27,
Walton County deputy sher-
iff Matt Aimanovich con-
ducted a traffic stop at In-
dian Bay Drive in Freeport,
Florida on a vehicle that
was being driven by James
Kidder, 35, of Freeport, Fla.
During his investigation
Deputy Aimanovich discov-
ered that Kidder did not
have a valid driver's license
and the tag displayed on the
vehicle was not assigned to
that vehicle. Aimanovich
then arrested Kidder for the
traffic violations.

While Kidder was being
transported to the Walton


County Jail, Deputy Steve
Key conducted an inventory
of Kidder's vehicle when he
discovered numerous items
used in the manufacturing
of methamphetamine. At
that time the Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office Narcotics
Unit was notified to assist in
the investigation and clean-
up of the methamphetamine
lab. Kidder was charged
with manufacture of meth-
amphetamine, possession of
drug paraphernalia, driving
while.license suspended or
revoked and attaching tag
not assigned to vehicle and
taken to the Walton County
Jail.

were seen together was in


Bay County on the evening
of May 7, 2012.
Rhodes and Hughes may
be traveling in a 2003 White
Cadillac Escalade, bearing
Florida tag 912 NWJ or in
a 2001 4 door Silver Ca-
dillac Seville, Florida tag
913NWJ.

DeFuniak Springs man
arrested on burglary charges


Last week Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO) dep-
uties were called to a resi-
dence located on Windflower
Street in DeFuniak Springs
after a neighbor saw a man
attempting to pry open a
window. The neighbor told
deputies they saw the man,
later identified as Nathan
Jung, 34, walk up to the resi-
dence and knock on the door.
After receiving no answer,
Jung then walked around
the side of the residence and
was looking in the windows.
The neighbor stated a short
time later they heard a loud
cracking noise and the ob-
serve Jung attempting to
pry the window screen open.


At that point the neighbor
called deputies. Upon ar-
rival deputies caught Jung
coming out of the rear of the
residence with items in his
hand. Deputies apprehend-
ed Jung without incident.
Deputies then made contact
with the owner of the resi-
dence who advised that they
did not know Jung and that
no one should be in their
house.
Sheriff Adkinson stated
"This is a great example of
citizens and deputies work-
ing together to fight crime.
Without the help of this citi-
zen this crime may have not
been solved."
Jung was charged with


NATHAN JUNG


burglary of a structure,
criminal mischief, and grand
theft. He was then booked
into the Walton County
Jail.


Suspect arrested for


robbery in Wee Care Park


Officers with the De-
Funiak Springs Police re-
sponded to Wee Care Park
in reference a strong arm
robbery on Thursday, June
28, 2012 at approximately 7
p.m. Shandonna Goldsmith,
23, of DeFuniak Springs,
reported that a black male
had forcibly taken $40 and a
pprple cell phone valued at
approximately $180 while
she was at Wee Care Park
with her child.
Goldsmith further stated
that the suspect, whb she
was familiar and believed
his nickname was "Dick" or
"Buster," had approached
her and asked to borrow
money. She reportedly told
the suspect "no." The sus-
pect continued to request
money and advised her that
he knew she had been paid.
Goldsmith told the suspect
"no" again and a struggle
ensued. The suspect grabbed
Goldsmith's purse and took


money from her wallet and
her cell phone. Goldsmith
began screaming and tried
to stop the suspect by grab-
bing his hair. The suspect
choked Goldsmith and
threw her down on the pave-
ment, causing abrasions to
her arms. The suspect then
reportedly fled in a gold van.
A witness overheard the in-
cident and observed the sus-
pect robbing Goldsmith and
fleeing the scene.
Officers were able to find
the suspect's hair strands
on the ground along with a
cell phone belonging to the
suspect. A pay stub was
also located with the name
of "Staci Anderson," of De-
Funiak Springs. Officers
were able to track down An-
derson and determine that
her boyfriend had been driv-
ing her gold van, that was
used in the robbery. Ander-
son's boyfriend was identi-
fied as Jerome Riley, Jr., 29,
of DeFuniak Springs.


Goldsmith was shown a
photo lineup and positively
identified Riley as the sus-
pect. Riley was located and
voluntarily questioned by
officers regarding the in-
cident. He denied robbing
Goldsmith, but admitted the
encounter. Based on the vic-
tim's statement, witness's
statement, and evidence
found at the scene, Riley
was arrested. Riley was also
found to have a warrant out
of Clinch County, Ga. for
armed robbery.
Jerome Riley, Jr. was
transported to the Wal-
ton County Department of
Corrections and booked on
charges of robbery, petit
theft, and fugitive from jus-
tice for the warrant out of
Georgia. Riley is currently
being held in the Walton
County Jail on a $10,000
bond for the local charges,
with a hold for Georgia au-
thorities.

FallenJlaw enforcement officers honored at annual


Summit for Heroes memorial -ceremony


By REID TUCKER

Britton Hill, in north-
ern Walton County, was
the state site of the Sum-
mit for Heroes ceremony,
which annually honors
America's law enforce-
ment professionals killed
in the line of duty.
Law Enforcement,offi-
cers around the country
climbed to their states'
highest points on Satur-
day, June 30, to pay re-
spects to their slain com-
rades, and Florida was
no different, even if its
highest point is only. 345
feet above sea level. Lo-
cated at Lakewood Park
just east of Paxton, Brit-
ton Hill is the lowest high
point of any state, but that
did not make the yearly
event any less moving for
the 30 or so people in at-
tendance.
Walton County Sheriff
Mike Adkinson presided
over this year's ceremo-
ny, with the remainder
of the crowd composed
of a contingent of local
law enforcement officers,
the friends and family of
slain officers from around
the state, and visitors to
the park..
"What ultimately sepa-
rates the men and women
of this profession from
any other profession is
that willingness to ad-
vance toward harm's way
when others run the oth-
er direction, not because
they have to but because
they want to, led by their
desire to help their fellow
man," Adkinson said in a
brief address. "The Bible
tells us that there is no
greater love than that of
him whb lays down his life
for his brother. Today, in
all 50 states, at the high-
est point of that state,
as close as we can come
to the good Lord on this
earth, we stand in unison


to recognize and honor
and provide solidarity
for the men and women
of law enforcement and
their families."
Connie Barker, presi-
dent of the Northwest
Florida chapter of the
Concerns Of Police Sur-,
vivors (C.O.P.S.), which
offers rehabilitative as-
sistance to more than 190
surviving family mem-
bers of law enforcement
officers in 13 Panhandle
counties, was also on
hand at the memorial ob-
servance. For Barker, the
Summit for Heroes car-
ries a special, if painful
memory as her son, Clint
Walker, died in. 2004
when he was accidentally
shot by another police of-
ficer. She said the yearly
memorial ceremony never
becomes any easier as the
years go by, but that she
will always appreciate
the effort to pay respects
to the sacrifices her son
and others made for their
country and communi-
ties.
"It helps to know that
other people remember
our loved ones and honor
them for what they did,"
Barker said. "They gave
their lives to help others,
so we appreciate, it when
the community comes to-
gether to help us remem-
ber too."
SApproximately 750
law enforcement prof6s-
sionals and their friends,
families and supporters
participate in the na-
tional Summit for Heroes
program each year.\
Six officers were killed
in Florida since last
year's Summit for Heroes
memorial. Deputy Sheriff

Ive myself? Well, yes. Why?
up Simple. You can't change
go other people, but you can
ng change the way you think
or. about things and how they
di- affect you. You can distance
Ise yourself mentally from their
on stress and stop taking it all
in. The only real peace we
he can find in this world as far
;h- as I know is through prayer
ey and changing the way we
on associate ourselves with the
m. stress in our life. We take
ae. thing personally. We take
ke things to heart. We think
at things are about us, when
they are really about oth-
ers.
Happiness is a state of
mind. Have you ever met
someone that no matter
what the world hands them,
nd sickness, death, changes,
re they are still pleasant and
le you want to spend time with
e I them. I say strive to be this
ou person. When someone tells
m you of their woes, respond
ay pleasantly and say, "I'll pray
ou for you," (if you believe in a
)ff higher power), or tell them
to that they will find their way
v- and then leave that stress
s- with them. It's not your job
or to fix others. It is your job to
e. be the best person you can be
,u and you don't have to absorb
or think about anything you
ge don't want to. We all choose
how happy we are in this life
or how miserable we are and
we are the only ones with the
power to do so. Change the
way you view others, change
your response, change your
mind and you will change
your life. I know, I've been
there and some days, I slip
and falter, but I always
strive to be better inside
and Accept-the things I have.
S"pwer-to change and the:
things I dofi't; to let them
fall by the wayside. Change
your thoughts and you will
change your life and that is
the best medicine you can
take and it don't cost a thing.
Good luck and God bless.

student competition


Freeport High School's
(FHS) broadcast class, Bull-
dog Productions won first
place in the 2012 Emer-
ald Coast Public Relations
(ECPRO) Student Campaign
Competition and received a
prize of $500. ECPRO held
the campaigns competition
to promote awareness and
interest in the profession-
al field of public relations

Students were asked to pick
a current issue relevant to
high schoolers and create
awareness about their is-
sue. "Stop Bullying" was
the hot topic for Freeport's
Bulldog Productions Public
Service Awareness (PSA)
campaign.
The Freeport students'

pain associated with bully-
ing put them in first place.
The FHS Bulldog Produc-
tions team students are Ash-
ton Evans, Debra Herndon,
Kelsie Hahn, Sam Wade, Eli
Sell, Jessica Parsons, and
Kayla Connelly.
The students attended
the May ECPRO member-
ship luncheon at Angler's on
Okaloosa Island, on Tues-
day, May 22, to present their
campaign to the member-
ship. They received plaques
and a check for $500 in
recognition for their accom-
plishment. Freeport High
School's Carla Hunt, Bull-
dog Productions advisor,


said, "This was a wonderful
experience for my students.
It takes them from the class-
room to the real world!"
In addition to the PSA
Campaign, seniors who par-
ticipated in a PSA campaign
team were eligible to enter
a "Senior Portfolio" of their
work throughout high school
to receive $1,000 scholar-
ships in the areas of jour-

Ponce de Leon's Flock and Carroll look back on championship senior year


By REID TUCKER
The lives of Jasmine Flock
and Kaitlyn Carroll changed
forever over the course of
Wednesday, Feb. 22.
That morning the two re-
cent Ponce de Leon High School
graduates and their teammates
on the Lady Pirates basketball
team clinched a 55-52 win
against Newberry in the final
game of the state Class 1A
tournament to win PDL's third
girls' basketball championship.
They returned home that night
to a hero's welcome. Fire trucks
and police vehicles from Holmes
County joined a victory proces-
sion of almost 40 cars escorting
the Lady Pirates back to their
home gym, where more than
300 friends, family and fans
threw confetti', snapped photos
and cheered.
It was a reception like noth-
ing either girl had ever expe-
rienced. Even now, more than
four months later, the two of
them still practically crackle
with excitement when they
talk about how it first felt to be
champions. Carroll said their
homecoming was "like the mid-
night premiere of a movie" and
Flock was similarly affected.
"It felt like 50 million people
were here and they were all
here for us," Flock added. "More


and more people kept coming in
behind them. It was just awe-
some. It was great to feel that
everyone was so proud us of for
accomplishing our goal."
Ponce de Leon won the state
title in 2000 but fell in the Fi-
nal Four during the '06-'07 sea-
son and last year let another
playoff run slip away when
Graceville got the upper hand
in the regional finals. Head
coach Tim Alford said winning
the state championship is al-
ways the objective at the start
of each season, so the frustra-
tions of the past few years
served to stoke the team's fire
more than ever. He said his
players decided early to make
the 2011-2012 season one for
the history books.
"I asked [the girls] over and
over, 'How do you want to be re-
membered?"' Alford said. "I told
them, 'If you win, history will
remember you.' To get so close
but yet not make it all the way
time after time did not sit well
with us. We were really pre-
pared now and everyone was on
the same page. The team was
as focused as any group I've
ever had."
The Lady Pirates' year was
about as good as it can get as
they posted a 28-2 record to
complete their 10th-straight


winning season on the road
to the championship. PDL
won three big games in the
span of five days to make it to
Lakeland, the site of the state
tournament, defeating South
Walton in the second round of
regional play on Feb. 18. Mak-
ing matters sweeter for PDL,
the Pirates had to get through
archrival Holmes County in the
semi-final round, which they
did to the tune of 52-4 in their
19th straight victory over the
Blue Devils.

The final game itself was as
dramatic as they come, as the
Lady Pirates soared in the first
half, posting a 28-9 lead over
Newberry after the first 16
minutes of play. However, they
nearly found themselves in
overtime against the Panthers,
who stopped PDL from mak-
ing a single 3 in the entire sec-
ond half and slowly worked to
close the gap. Only two missed
free throws from Newberry's
Lasharrah Nattiel kept the
game from being tied, giving
Ponce the 55-52 victory.
Alford said Flock played
with more emotion than he'd
ever seen her display' as she
shined in her final court ap-
pearance, matching her earlier
season-high score of 26 points


' by hitting 8-for-11 from the field
and 10-of-12 from the stripe.
She also had 12 rebounds and
was solid on defense all night.
Flock, who led the Pirates in
scoring on the year, earned a
total of 1,186 career points,
with 43 coming in her last two
games as a senior.
"We knew it was our last
game, so we had nothing to
hold back," Flock said. "It was
pretty much all or nothing. I
know we'd wanted that state
championship ring for a long
time and had been working for
it every year. I had the mindset
that I was going to do every-
thing in my power to make it
happen for me and my team."
For Carroll, who scored eight
points from the free throw line
in the championship game and
helped to hold the team togeth-
er through the rough patches,
the win in Lakeland was some-
thing akin to destiny. As a stu-
dent at Ponce de Leon schools
since kindergarten, she grew
up seeing basketball champion-
ships as something the whole
community believed in. It was
up to her and her teammates,
she said, to prove that faith
was not unfounded.
"I can remember, back when
we were younger, our teach-
ers always telling us 'Hang in


there, stay with it, your group
will win it, you'll get it done,' so
it's always been in the back of
my mind," Carroll said. "Every-
one believed in us and believed
in me. I didn't think there was
anything that could stop me
from winning a championship."
In spite of a gratifying end
to a season, not everything
about the victory was as good
as Alford and the girls would
have wanted. The year was
marred somewhat by an un-
fortunate accident in the last
practice before the start of the
season which sidelined Jaicee
Mayo, the third senior on the
team, with a torn ACL for most
of the schedule. Though Mayo
was able to return late in the
season, not having her on the
court for much of the time is
something Alford, Flock and
Carroll see as a blemish on.an
otherwise sterling run.
Back in the present, time has
moved on. Flock and Carroll
graduated on June,7 and are
now enjoying their last sum-
mer of freedom before starting
school again in the fall. Flock
will attend Alabama's Enter-
prise State Community Col-
lege, where she plans to major
in physical therapy, while Car.-
roll starts at Northwest Florida
State College 'to pursue a de-


gree in childcare.
Neither said if basketball
is something that they'll be
involved with at the collegiate
level, but the sport itself and
what they accomplished in it is
something that will stay with
them for the rest of their lives.
Although only months have
passed since winning the title,
by all accounts going out at the
height of achievement in their
sport, Flock and Carroll still
have a hard time believing it
all really happened.
Sometimes these things take
a little getting used to, Carroll
said, especially when they are
the biggest moments so far in
one's life.
"Sometimes I'll catch myself
thinking about what I should
have done differently in certain
games or how I could have done
this or that, and then I'll think,
'Hey, I won a state champion-
ship,"' Carroll said. "It hasn't
really set in yet for me or for
anyone on the team. I have to
remind myself sometimes that
I was there. I did that.'

S"It was the highlight of not
just my senior year but of my
whole high school life. Playing
basketball was a fun-experi-
ence for me. I'll never forget
any of it."

of relief in his Major League
Baseball debut for the St.
Louis Cardinals on Satur-
day as they lost 7-3 to the
Pittsburgh Pirates. Brown-
ing threw 20 pitches, 15 for
strikes, in the sixth and sev-
enth innings as the 27-year
old left-hander was promot-
ed from Triple-A Memphis
on Friday night to the par-
ent club. Browning played
for the Seminoles in 2005
and 2006, winning 11- games
in a dual role ascstarter and
reliever. Selected from the
Anaheim Angels in the mi-
nor league portion of last
December's Rule 5 Draft,
he had a 1.89 ERA in 30 ap-
pearances for Memphis. He
limited opponents to a .192
batting average. Browning
also was selected to the up-
coming Pacific Coast League
All-Star Game.

For the third straight,
year the Florida State ath-
letic program has finished
in the top 10 of the final
Division I Learfield Sports

The Seminoles finished No.
5 in 2009-10, No. 9 in 2010-

the program's highest-ever
finish at No. 5 once again
in 2011-12. Florida State is
one of just six schools with
three consecutive top 10 fin-

in the top 15 of the stand-

Seminoles hadn't finished
higher than 22nd dating
back to the 1998-99 academ-

Walton For Santa Fe


By PATRICK CASEY
South Walton High
School head football coach
Bill Wiles has accepted the
same post at Santa Fe High
School in Alachua County
after spending one season
with the Seahawks.
Wiles, who was officially
hired in early April 2011
for the South Walton job,
coached Branford High
School for five years before
arriving in Walton County.
He posted a 25-25 record
at that school and saw the
Seahawks win their regular
season finale against Frank-
lin County to finish 1-9 last
season.
The Seahawks posted a
win in their spring game
against Cottondale and
have been working on their
weight training and condi-
tioning as they prepare for
the 2012 season.
The opening is being ad-
vertised and the position
will be filled as soon as pos-
sible as fall practice starts
in early August with stu-
dents returning for the first
day of school on Aug. 8. The
current coaching staff will
continue to run the off-sea-
son drills until either a new
hire is made or an assistant
is promoted to the job.
Wiles began coaching in


1985 when he worked as an
assistant to Richard Kenne-
dy at Dunnellon. After five
years with the\Tigers, Wiles
took over as head football
coach and athletic director
at Bell High School, leading
the school to a seven-win
season in his second year
there.

Wiles took over the
Graceville football program
in 1993 and stayed with the
Tigers through the 1996
season. In his first year with
the Tigers, he took the squad
to their second state cham-
pionship in the sport with a
24-7 win over Belle Glades-
Glades Day High School.
Wiles- took the Trenton
head football coaching job
in 1997 as his wife, Melissa,
is from nearby Newberry.
Wiles stayed at Trenton for
five years, taking the school
to the playoffs in his first
five seasons. He then went
across the Georgia border for
a two-year stint at Lowndes
County High School in
Georgia before taking a job
at Branford as the defensive
coordinator in 2004. He took
over as the head football
coach in January of 2006.
Wiles is a University of
Florida graduate and grew
up in Deland.

DeFuniak Springs Little League Softball Wins District


By PATRICK CASEY
The DeFuniak Springs
Little League 11-12 year
old softball team won three
games last week to take


home the District 1 title and
advance to the Section round
against the District 20 win-
ner in Tallahassee later this
month.


The DeFuniak squad
took the first game of the
three-team tournament in
Niceville by a 12-2 score
over Shalimar, then de-

feated Niceville twice in the
span of three days by scores
of 11-1 and 11-3 to win the
event.
DeFuniak pitcher Han-
nah Poole earned the win in
the 11-3 victory on Thurs-
day night as she overcame
a rough second inning to go
the distance. DbFuniak gave
Poole a 2-0 lead in the top
of the first inning but saw
the advantage slip away in
the bottom of the second as
errors and wild pitches al-
lowed Niceville to take a 3-2
lead.
The Walton County squad
recaptured the lead for good
in the top of the fourth in-
ning as Niceville struggled
to hit the strike zone, allow-
ing numerous walks with
just enough hits to plate five
runs for a 7-3 lead after four
innings of play.
DeFuniak put the game
away with three runs in
the fifth inning as Jasmin
Hester drove in two runs


with a triple to push the
lead to 10-3. The squad add-
ed another run in the top
of the sixth inning as solid
pitching and good defense
did not allow Niceville to
tally another run after the
second inning.
Seven of the 12 team
members along with all
three coaches were part of
the 2011 team that went all
the way to Port St. Lucie for
the state tournament.

County approves


procedures for


property acquisition


By DOTTY NIST
Procedures are now in
place for Walton County to
follow when the county ac-
quires" or disposes of prop-
erty.
Previously no such stan-
dards had been part of Wal-
ton County Code. They were
added through an ordinance
approved by the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) at its
June 26 regular meeting at
the Walton County Court-
house in DeFuniak Springs.
The ordinance states that,
the BCC will consider all
requests for property acqui-
sition and approve these re-
quests when they are found
to be in the best interest of
the county---and found to
provide for a public purpose.
A public purpose is defined
as one with the objective of
promoting "public health,
.safety, morals, general wel-
fare, security, prosperity
and contentment of the resi-
dents of the County and not
the welfare of an individual
or a specific class of per-
sons."
The ordinance tasks the
county administrator or
his designee with obtaining
appropriate appraisals, en-
vironmental assessments,
determination of other as-
sociated costs, and with
identification of the "selling
party." This information is
to be provided to the BCC
"as an agenda item at a no-
.ticed meeting for consider-
ation." Upon authorization
of the BCC at that meeting,
the county administrator/
designee is to provide the
terms of the county's offer


to the seller and negotiate
any terms "which may differ
from the Board's approved
price and conditions."
Information from this
contact by the administra-
tor/designee with the seller
is then to be provided to the
BCC as an agenda item at
a publicly-noticed meeting,
resulting in the negotiated
terms being accepted, reject-
ed, or amended. If the terms
are rejected or amended,
the administrator/designee
is to be authorized to again-
provide the county's terms
to the seller and engage in
negotiations as previously.
Upon acceptance of the ne-
gotiated terms by the BCC
in public session, the county
administrator and county
attorney "are to be tasked
with determining closing
procedures, preparing clos-
ing documents, and provid-
ing documentation that the
seller agrees to those docu-
ments.
The ordinance specifies
that the closing documents
are to be provided to the
BCC at a noticed meeting
for consideration. Upon the
BCC's acceptance of terms
associated with those docu-
ments, the BCC chairman is
to be authorized to sign the
documents.
The ordinance provides
for the process of a transac-
tion to cease at any step if
there is a majority vote call-
ing for it to do so.
Responsibilities outlined
for the county administra-
tor in connection with these
transactions are providing
the county's ordinance and
procedures for property


transactions to all depart-
ments that are involved,
maintenance of all docu-
ments related to transac-
tions, and hiring experts as
necessary, other than attor-
neys and title companies, to
assist.
Responsibilities outlined
for the county attorney are
advising the BCC on prop-
erty transactions, ordering
and reviewing title opin-
ions, advising the BCC on
insurance coverage require-
ments, drafting documents
for transactions, conduct-
ing closings, and hiring at-
torneys or other experts as
necessary to assist.
The ordinance provides
for the exemption of a prop-
erty transaction from its
terms by the commission-
ers if they determine that
the property in question is
"needed for county, state,
or federal right of way, is
less than one acre in total
transaction size, and has an
estimated value of less than
$25,000 for the total trans-
action."
The ordinance also sets
standards for disposition of
county property, beginning
with a determination by the
BCC in accordance with sec-
tion 125.379, Florida Stat-
ures, as to which county-
owned properties are to be
designated as surplus.
The need for an ordinance
governing property transac-
tions was highlighted in fall
2011, when questions were
raised about irregularities
with the county's $345,000
purchase, almost a year

Funding identified


to complete U.S.


331 four-laning


By DOTTY NIST
The state Department of
Transportation (DOT) has
followed through with its
pledge to provide funding
to complete the four-laning
of U.S. 331 from the north
side of the bay bridge. to
I-10. This had been DOT's
understanding with Walton
County on the condition of
the county partnering by
providing $75 million in lo-
cal matching funding on


TDC plans workshops for general


public input and education


By DOTTY NIST
Citizens will have the op-
portunity to participate in
general discussion and pro-
vide input on the South Wal-
ton Tourist Development
Council (TDC). Approved at
the request of the TDC, has
been the hiring of a facilita-
tor to conduct public work-
shops that are to include a
number of topics related to
the tourism council.
At their June 26 regu-
lar meeting at the Walton
County Courthouse in De-
Funiak Springs, county
commissioners authorized
the council to advertise for
bids for the facilitator.
These workshops are to
precede the facilitator-led
workshops that the TDC
had decided on previously,
which are to include "vi-
sioning sessions" to work
through what is needed with
regard to space for TDC ad-
ministrative offices---and
to evaluate options for the
TDC visitor center, includ-
ing a center attached to the
offices, separate, or in mul-
tiple locations.


While the initial work-
shops are to include discus-
sion of needs for an interac-
tive visitor center and TDC
administrative offices, they
are planned to be broader
in scope to provide for more
general public input on the
TDC---and for informational
content on the mission of
the TDC and the statutes
governing the organization.
At the June 26 Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) meet-
ing, TDC Executive Direc-
tor Dawn Moliterno told
the commissioners that the
TDC understood the public's
desire for a "bigger broader
discussion" on the TDC,
and that the council mem-
bers had indicated that they
would welcome that. She
added that the council mem-
bers saw these workshops as
a good opportunity for infor-
mation to be provided to the
public on the state statutes
under which the TDC oper-
ates and on the constraints
posed by those laws.
District 4 Commissioner
Sara Comander asked if


the workshops could not be
conducted by someone in
county administration or by
another county staff mem-
ber so that funds would not
have to be expended for a fa-
cilitator.
Molitero. responded that
the council members had
thought that, in order to
take public input, address
community concerns, and
provide the general informa-
tion that the council wanted
to share, it would be impor-
tant for the workshops to
be conducted by a facilita-
tor not tied to the county.
She added that funding was
available in the TDC budget
that would not result in a
reduction of any funds set
aside for capital improve-
ment projects. Plans are for
the workshops to be held at
a location other than the
TDC building and for the fa-
cilitator secured for the ini-
tial workshops to continue
as leader of the workshops
to follow on the administra-
tive offices and options for
the visitor center.
District 5 Commissioner


Cecilia Jones was in agree-
ment on the need for a
professionally-trained facil-
itator to conduct the work-
shops. Speaking of the joint

Springs, and the Walton County School Board, of the Walton Road/John Baldwin Road
intersection. Study recommendations included an asphalt overlay of the area, installation
of a four-way stop, and reconfiguration of road striping in the area, with the project to be

mously.

ZBA votes to rehear Judkins


administrative order appeal


By DOTTY NIST

After prevailing in their
appeal of a planning direc-
tor's decision at the end of
a lengthy hearing in front
of the Walton County Zon-
ing Board of Adjustments
(ZBA), Holiday Road resi-
dents Mike and Shari Jud-
kins are now faced with
the case being reopened for
arguments and a new vote
being taken by the county
board.
The Judkins' original
challenge of Walton County
Planning Director Wayne
Dyess' decision that a dry-
wall business was an allow-
able use in a Coastal Center
land use area on North Holi-
day Road had been heard on
Feb. 23. A motion to deny
the appeal had failed in a
2-5 vote, and at the time that
vote had been presumed to
signify the granting of the
Judkins' appeal.
Toni Craig, hired the
same month as county attor-
ney, had identified a prob-
lem with the vote because no
affirmative motion had been
approved. An affirmative
vote on the matter to ratify


the decision was placed on
the agenda for the ZBA's
April 26 meeting. However,
at that meeting, no vote was
taken due to Craig having
identified another problem,
that of notification not hav-
ing been provided to the
owner of the property in
question and to people re-
siding within 300 feet of the
property. With such notice
to be provided, the vote was
rescheduled for the May 24
ZBA meeting. However, at
that meeting the vote was
again postponed at the Jud-
kins' request due to a full
board not being present.
At the June 28 ZBA meet-
ing at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex, repre-
sentatives of the drywall
business and the owner of
the property housing the
business were present to
make the argument that
those parties had not been
notified prior to the origi-
nal hearing that the chal-
lenge would be heard by
the board. Representing the
property lessee and proper-
ty owner George Kingston,
local attorney George Ralph
Miller called for another


"full-blown hearing" on the
case.
Miller also argued that
Walton County could have
liability if the drywall busi-
ness were required to close,
since the county had issued
a Certificate of Land Use
Compliance for the busi-
ness.
Bob Apgar, an attorney
representing the Judkins,
cpuntered that the Certifi-
cate of Land Use Compli-
ance had no bearing on the
matter at hand, since the
certificate had not been the
subject of the appeal. He
maintained that the busi-
ness owner and property
owner had not been "kept in
the dark"---and that notice of
the appeal hearing had been
provided through newspa-
per publication according to
the requirements of county
code. Notice by mail, Apgar
maintained, is only required
by code when a change to the
land development code is to
be considered that would af-
fect a property owner.
Mac Carpenter, county
planner, told the board mem-
bers that there is no code re-
quirement for people within


300 feet to be provided no-
tice by mail of an appeal of
an administrative decision,
nor is there a requirement
in this instance for notice to
a business leasing a prop-
erty. However, Carpenter
said he was fairly sure that
the county had not provided
notice to the property owner
about the appeal, which was
a problem.
Miller maintained that
there had been a "fatal flaw"
with the appeal in that the
property owner had not been
made aware that the appeal
process was ongoing.
Craig was of the opinion
that the county had notifica-
tion requirements beyond
publication of the notice.
She stated that, however,
since the change of attor-
neys for the ZBA (to herself)
after the original hearing
of the appeal, proper notice
had been provided.
The ZBA members voted
to rescind their previous de-
cision and rehear the appeal
at their August 23 meeting.
That meeting is scheduled
to begin at 6 p.m. and take
place at the South Walton
Courthouse Annex.

ditches, and will work posi-
tively in this direction.
I believe we can and must
find solutions with Alabama
in regards to the breeding
of nuisance pests and will
work towards this goal.
As a former south Wal-
ton County tree farmer, and
owner of rentals that need
to be maintained, I am pas-
sionate about this subject,
and directly affected by the
activities of the SWMC.
As a child, my father, Ed
Walline, would take me to
the SWMC meetings and
with him on his journeys
surveying ditches, etc. He
was dedicated to the cause,
given he and his parents
had contracted Malaria


while they lived in the old
JD Miller house. He allowed
the SWMC to dig ditches on
the edges of his tree farm
out on Live Oak Point, thus
creating roads from the pro-
cess. At one time, that area
was not habitable for man,
or even cattle. Now, the land
is useable, and people live
there. I also believe that you
can thank the SWMC for our
current growth in the entire
south Walton area.
Born in DeFuniak Springs
to Ed and Jane Walline, we
lived in Grayton Beach un-
til I was six, then moving
to the bay, off what is now
Chat Holley Road. I went to
school at Point Washington
Elementary, Freeport, Fla.
spent three years in Pensa-
cola at Ferry Pass Elemen-
tary and Middle, and Wal-
ton Senior High. Went to
Gulf Coast Community Col-
lege and Okaloosa/Walton
Community College.
I would appreciate your
vote and support in this
election. Adrianne Walline

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JULY 5,2012


By DOTTY NIST

A grass-roots gathering
known as "Walton County
Citizens Speak" took place
on June 28 at the the North-
west Florida State College
facility in Santa Rosa Beach,
Organizer Kathleen Larney
explained that she had had
complaints recently about
Walton County government
and that others in the com-


munity had also shared com-
plaints with her. This led to
the idea of having a meeting
of citizens for the purpose
of understanding and get-
ting educated on issues and
candidates for the upcoming
elections.
The June 28 meeting
drew more than two dozen
attendees, including a num-
ber of candidates for local
office. There was a presen-


station by community leader
Frank Day and open discus-
sion by attendees. A video of
the meeting has been posted
on the web site www.neigh-
borvision.com.
Another "Citizens Speak"
ipeeting is planned for July
10 at the Northwest Florida
State College facility which
is to include information on
the Aug. 14 primary election.
Plans are for the start of the


meeting to be delayed until
the conclusion of the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners meeting that
is to take place beginning at
4 p.m. that evening at the
Walton County Courthouse
Annex. Additional "Citizens
Speak" meetings are tenta-
tively planned for as often
as weekly up until the week
before the primary.


FUNDING
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


Three Secretary Tommy
Barfield reported to the Wal-
ton County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC) that
funding was being added
"today" to the DOT road
program to provide for the
four-laning of three previ-
ously-unfunded sections
of U.S. 331. This included
$14.8 million for the sec-
tion north of Nokuse Plan-
tation to Edgewood Circle,
$27.5 million for the section
from south of SR-20 to Owl's
Head, and $28.6 million for
the section from Edgewood
Circle to I-10.
Barfield explained that
the first section had previ-
ously been part of a joint
participation agreement be-
tween Walton County and
DOT---but that it would be
"pulled back" to DOT. He
said DOT intended to com-
bine all three sections into
one contract and advertise
the project for bids by June
2013. Since DOT does not
own all the necessary right-
of-way, he explained that
plans are to begin purchas-
ing right-of-way to the north
and at the same time start
construction on the south.
Barfield said bids were
taken for the highway sec-
tion between the bridge
and SR-20 in May and that
construction on that section
should begin in July. DOT
is a year away from opening
bids for the bridge project,
he said. The bridge project
is to be bid on a design-build


basis, with the design phase'
expected to take one year to
accomplish and four years
to be the total contract time
for that project.
Barfield expected that the
SR-20 to 1-10 widening proj-
ect would be underway at
the time construction would
begin on the bridge project.
He said repairs to the ex-
isting bridge, mainly from
north of the main bridge
to the first small bridge on
the causeway, would be bid
as part of the bridge proj-
ect. Upon the completion of
the new northbound bridge
span to the east, plans are
for traffic to be shifted onto
that span so that those re-
pairs can take place.
In response to a question,
Barfield said that federal
rules require existing recre-
ational facilities,' including
the boat launches and the
small bayfront park, to be
maintained, although the
construction may require
them to be closed temporar-
ily.
Asked about work oppor-
tunities for local residents
in connection with the road/
bridge projects, Barfield
responded that, with mul-
tiple contractors likely to
be working on U.S. 331 at
one time, it will make sense
for those contractors to hire
workers from the local area.
Barfield conveyed DOTs
appreciation of the oppor-
tunity to work with Walton
County.

INPUT

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1-C


BCC/TDC meeting held two
weeks earlier to discuss the
issue of a new location for
the TDC offices and options
for the visitor center, Jones
recalled that citizens in at-
tendance had put forth "50
or 60 different ideas."
Jones also spoke to the
need for having a trained fa-
cilitator on county staff.
District 3 Commissioner
Larry Jones moved to ap-
prove the TDC's request to
advertise for bids for a facili-
tator to lead the workshops.
His motion was approved
4-1, with Comander voting
no..
In other action on TDC
items at the June 26 meet-
ing, the commissioners
authorized the TDC to ad-
vertise for bids for an engi-
neering/construction com-
pany to correct health and
safety-related deficiencies
identified with the current
TDC building and site: Mo-
literno said that immediate
measures were also being
taken on these issues and
that consideration was be-
ing given, to utilize the TDC
conference room for staff
people who would be moved
there from the attic.
At the request of the
TDC, the commissioners ap-
proved a contract with DPA
for research services on fu-
ture tourism trending at a
rate of $157,000 per year.
Moliterno said that the TDC
had advertised a request for
proposals for the services,
for which $160,000 had been
budgeted, and that DPA's
bid had come in below that


amount. She explained
that the council members
thought it important to fo-
cus research on future rath-
er than past tourism trends.
She added that the council
had conducted research for
the past 10 years in order to
guide them in the effective
use of media.
"New improved" guide-
lines and operating proce-
dures recommended by the
TDC for the Group Busi-
ness Sponsorship Incentive
Program were approved, as
were criteria for designation
of beach neighborhoods for
purposes of marketing those
neighborhoods as part of the
"Visit South Walton" desti-
nation brand.
Moliterno also received
authorization to hire at an
hourly rate seven individu-
als who had been working
with TDC advertising con-'
sulting firm LKM. She had
previously explained that
the owner of LKM was clos-'
ing down his business at the
end of June after 27 years
of operation,, due to the ill-
ness of his wife. The hiring
of the seven individuals was
aimed at facilitating imme-
diate TDC needs for a 60 to
90-day period, pending the
approval of an advertising
contract with a new com-
pany. Moliterno said that
cost savings would be seen
over the 60 to 90-day period
due to the hourly rates for
the seven people being less
than the amount the TDC
had been paying LKM un-
der the contract with that
company.

SWCMCD recognizes National


Mosquito Control Awareness week


By JEFFREY POWELL
Summer is officially here
which means more traffic
and the possibility of tropi-
cal weather. The summer
season is also a time when
mosquitos take advan-
tage of warm temperatures
and standing water left by
storms and afternoon show-
ers. With these realities


in mind the South Walton
County Mosquito Control
District (SWCMCD) recog-
nized the National Mosqui-
to Control Awareness Week
(NMCAW) starting on June
25. As part of this recogni-
tion SWCMCD Director Ben
Brewer spoke to a classroom
full of students at the Tech-
nology Engineering Science


SWCMCD DIRECTOR BEN BREWER spoke to this TE-
SLA class on June 25.


Leadership Academy (TE-
SLA) in Seagrove Beach on
Monday, June 25, concern-
ing mosquito based prob-
lems.
"I enjoyed 'talking with
the students about mos-
quito control," said Brewer.
"They were very prepared
and had a lot of really good
questions."
Brewer's trip to this class
and the recognition of NM-
CAW is all part of trying to
better educate the public
about services the SWCM-
CD performs for south Wal-
ton. The organization has
also recently applied new
graphics to their vehicles to
be more recognizable to the
public.
"There may be citizens
within the district that do
not know that they can call
us concerning their mosqui-
to., problems," Brewer said.
"Many times we .respond
to citizens' calls within 24
hours by visiting their prop-
erty. We have a very well
trained and experienced
staff. We want to work with
the public to resolve what-


ever mosquito problems
they might have."
One thing citizens can
do around their property to
control mosquitos is elimi-
nate standing water. Brew-
er suggests checking flower
pots after each rain. Also
eliminate five gallon buck-
ets, old tires, bottles, wheel-
barrows or anything which
holds water.
Brewer would also like
the public to know that
spraying for'adult mosqui-
tos is a last resort. The orga-
nization maintains 40 miles
of drainage ditches, moni-
tors known problem areas,
treats storm drains, uses
gambusia fish that eat mos-
quito larvae and test-moni-
tors chickens for viruses to
keep from having to spray.
Keeping an open dialogue
with the public is also a pri-
.ority for SWCMCD Commis-
sioner John Magee.
"Our mission is to be as
transparent to the citizens
as possible," said Magee.
"We are here to serve. Give
us a call and. we will re-
spond."


NWFSC Trustees approve college


budget, maintain low tuition


The governing Board
of Trustees of Northwest
Florida State College
has approved a balanced
$33,341,509 annual operat-
ing budget that maintains
the college's tuition rates
among the lowest in the
state, despite budget chal-
lenges.
Following a lengthy dis-
cussion, Trustees voted to
approve a 2.5 percent tuition
increase (two and -one-half
percent) that will result in
about $183 in extra annual
cost for a full- time Associ-
ate degree student and an
additional $279 per aca-
demic year for a full-time
bachelor's degree student.
The college administration
had proposed a five percent
increase in tuition. Trust-
ees chose instead to increase
fees by a smaller amount
and to reduce the college's
contingency budget for the
difference.
Starting July 1, college
credit classes at NWFSC
will cost $100.12 per credit
hour for lower division As-
sociate degree courses and
$118.59 per credit hour for
bachelor's degree upper di-
vision courses.
The general operating
budget for the college's 2012-
13 fiscal year is $33,341,509,
a slight increase of $93,185
over the college's current
fiscal year. The total college
budget in all funds, includ-
ing construction, student fi-
nancial aid, auxiliary opera-
tions and other categories


for 2012-13 is $49,018,687
-changed from $66,431,676
in 2011-12.
College president Dr.
Ty Handy noted during
the budget discussion that
NWFSC had received about
$638,000 less in state fund-
ing than it normally would
have under Florida's tradi-
tional funding model since
about $36 million was allo-
cated to nine colleges from
among the 28 via special
appropriations. "The effect
of the legislative process
used this year was to subsi-
dize one third of the colleges
with state funding from the
other two thirds of the col-
leges." Handy told trustees.
"As one of the colleges with
the lowest tuition cost per
student, we have less flex-
ibility to absorb this impact
... .resulting in the need to
request a modest increase in
student tuition and fees."
In other matters, trust-
ees approved an articula-
tion agreement with the
University of West Florida
that further strengthens the
partnership between the two
colleges by providing an op-
portunity for students in the
NWFSC Teacher Education
baccalaureate degree pro-
gram to be eligible to receive
credit for up to six credit
hours as they enter the Mas-
ter's in Education program
at UWF. NWFSC current-
ly offers teacher education
bachelor's degree programs
in Elementary Education,
Middle Grades Science Edu-


cation and Middle Grades
Math Education.' Handy
cited the collaborative effort
as an example for the state
in joint partnerships and
noted that the two institu-
tions had recently received
$200,000 in state grants to
develop a Hospitality pro-
gram that will result in .an
eventual bachelor's degree
in Hospitality being offered
in the region.
Trustees also approved
the long range purchase of a
new college enterprise wide
computer operations sys-
tem, the Ellucian (formerly
known as Banner) product
used by colleges across the
nation to control finance,
registration and all col-
lege operational processes.
NWFSC spent 18 months
researching a system and
selected the Banner prod-
uct at a cost of $7.6 million.
Trustees approved a financ-
ing plan at a fixed rate of
1.712 percent through Sun
Trust Equipment Finance
& Leasing Corporation to
finance $5 million of the
total cost over a 7 year pe-
riod. The new system will,
replace a 15-year-old prod-
uct that had been developed
and maintained through
a consortium of state and
community colleges that is
no longer adequate for the
needs of the college for the
coming decades.
Trustees also ,vpted to
select trustee Brian Pen-
nington of Shalimar as the
Board's new chair and Paul


Foster of Fort Walton Beach
as the vice chair.
Organizational changes
to the president's office were
also approved by trustees In-
cluding the naming of Cris-
tie Kedroski, current Direc-
tor of College Advancement
and NWFSC Foundation, to
the post of Vice President
for College Advancement.
The college trustees also
approved separating the
Dean of Students and Ath-
letic Director functions,
which had formerly been in
a combined position held by
the recently retired Mickey
Englett, into separate Ath-.
letic Director and Dean of
Students posts. The college
is currently conducting a job
search for an Athletic Direc-
tor and Christine Bishop,
the current Dean of Enroll-
ment Services, was named
to fill the Dean of Students
post in addition to her cur-
rent enrollment services
role. The .annual contract
for the college president
was also amended to com-
ply with new laws related to
severance pay and to clarify
retirement contributions.
Trustees also approved
a retirement resolution
honoring the more than 33
years of service of Maxine
Randolph of Niceville, who
served in variety of roles
including most recently Stu-
dent Services specialist at
the college's Fort Walton
Beach.

( u c l 0-6iO-i


It was once believed that the only truth was the
evening news, and no one could give the straight
talk like the old greats, such as Walter Cronkite.
But in the new century, an alarming number of
those loyal watchers, 'readers and advertisers,
have begun to fall off the radar.


Back in the early days of
television, every household
in the nation that could af-
ford a television set, pulled
the family inside the living
room, rolled back the tinfoil
on the TV dinners, and lis-
tened as Walter Cronkite
gave the happenings of the
day. It was a time when the
news said it, and it was the
truth!
People very rarely ques-
tioned the news, or those
who presented the news.
They felt that they could put
their trust in the evening
news anchors, because they
were the ones sitting behind
the news desk in New York
City and Washington, D.C.
For decades, the live eve-
ning news broadcast was
the only source that could
bring the world happenings
into the living rooms of all
Americans. Be it a story that
happened two days ago, or a
live feed, it was all about the
reporting and those who re-
ported.
But like the' old say-
ing goes, 'times, they are a
changing." That phrase is
true with the way the hews
is being presented, and by
those who present it.
In a study released just
this past week, the world
of journalism has taken a
mighty blow around the
country. Advertising 'is
down, revenue and viewer-
ship is down, and hostil-
'ity towards the journalism
industry is at an' all time
high!
Recently, two indepen-
dent studies were conducted
to find out what people that
listened to the news on the
radio, watched the news
on television, and read the
news in newspapers and


magazines thought about
the current world of journal-
ism. They were asked a mul-
titude of questions ranging
from what they thought of
the appearance of the jour-
nalists reporting the news,
to the reliability of the re-
ports being given.
To the surprise of the
research groups, it wasn't
how attractive the reporter
was, or the "cool" graphics
that appeared behind the
news anchor's desk, but it
was the trust they had in
those reporters and stories.
For several network affili-
ates such as NBC and ABC,
the number of those who
trusted their coverage and
outweighed the editorials of
their reports, stood at only
21-percent favorability, put-
ting those news networks
just above the 17 percent fa-
vorability of Congress.
For print, newspaper gi-
ants such as the New York
Times, the San Francisco
Chronicle and the Atlanta
Constitution, all had se-
verely damaging blows from
their' readers as well. Be-
ginning in 2008, advertis-
ing revenue for those large
papers, began to slide from
the previous years. Despite
an economy that was flouin-
dering, with advertisers
'seeking to gain traction on
television, newspapers in
smaller markets and fami-
ly-owned newspapers were
both seeing advertising
revenue hold steady and in
some cases, even rise.
But the readers, listeners
and watchers have spoken
and given the reason why
they no longer buy, subscribe
or tune in to the news. They
simply don't trust what is
being printed or said.


Many of those inter-
viewed said that it was not
the fact that anchors, talk,
show hosts and even produc-
ers and directors have been
fired, or their positions have
been "modified." It was due
to them making their own
predictions and biased com-
ments about the news, rath-
er than just reporting the
news.
This was very obvious
when it came to the major
networks and those who
worked for them. As of last
week, the major three -
NBC, ABC and CBS have
never seen ratings drop so
low, not since they first ap-
peared on home television
screens in the 1950s.
An obvious problem, seen
by the entire television view-
ing nation last Friday, was
when NBC "canned" Ann
Curry from the Good Morn-
ing show: This came after
several months of resigna-
tions and firings from that
network that included Lilia
Luciano, MSNBC's Keith


Olbermann, Vicki Burns and
Dick Ebersol, just to name a
few, who were let go, or who
are fleeing the floundering
network.
ABC and CBS have not
seen as many resignations as
the Peacock Network. Still,
there are enough to make
them realize that journal-
ists are no lofiger giving the
news in an unbiased man-
ner, but are telling the news
from their own perspective.
The only two news networks
that seem to have a vast au-
dience, and where revenue
is still good and even great,
are CNN and FOX.
Known for having numer-
ous reporters and journal-
ists that tell the news in a
more biased fashion, and
those that have their own
30-60 rant-and-rave show,
these two networks have
seen growth. Not only have
they seen their viewership
explode, but their revenues
did not change over the last
four years during the bad
economy; in fact, they re-


ported massive inclines in
their advertising revenue.
As far as newspaper and
print, the news is just as
dismal as for television. Ad-
vertisers were once clamor-
ing to get into the New York
Times, the L.A. Times, and
Time magazine, and any
other national and syndi-
cated print form. But many
have said the same thing
about the stories and reports
that are in them as well.
They seem to have more bi-
ased opinions by journalists,
rather than hard-hitting,
unbiased news.
The one news source that
has not suffered the latest
"blast" from the public, or
from advertisers, are the
local independent newspa-
pers. I am iot saying this
because I write for a local,
independently-owned news-
paper, but readers still pick
up the weekly editions to
see local news, some state,
regional and national cover-
age, the obit, wedding and


birth announcements, and
even editorials. Thus the
advertisers follow suit.
As the election season
rolls around, with more and
more coverage of local, state,
national and presidential
elections on the airwaves
and the .newspapers, more
and more will turn their
back to those national enti-
ties, and get their news from
their local paper, radio sta-
tion, or television station.
It has been proven that
less biased news and "one-
sided" thoughts, are ex-
pressed in local/regional
news, and more and more
people have come back to
them, because of that fact.
The only thing that locals
still don't have 100-percent
trust in (just like on a na-
tional level) is the weather
forecast..
Many say they would love
to have a job where you only
have to be right 50 percent
of the time, and still hold on
to your position!
