Carman gets unanimous nod

from DFS City Council for

finance director position


By REID TUCKER
It took three rounds
of voting to arrive at a
consensus, but the De-
Funiak Springs City
Council voted unani-


mously in favor of hir-
ing Thomas Carman to
the position of city fi-
nance director.

THOMAS CARMAN WAS HIRED AS FI-
NANCE DIRECTOR for the city of DeFuniak

on Monday, just in time for the Council's first
regularly scheduled meeting of 2013.

Leadership and


mentorship for breakfast


Story and photos by
BEN GRAFTON
At the Jan. 4 Wal-
ton Area Chamber of
Commerce (WACC)
breakfast meeting in
the Lake House at
Hammock Bay, a good
turnout of members
started the new year
with a program featur-
ing presentations about
leadership and its close
companion, mentor-
ship.
Terry Schrader, own-
er of Terry's Air Condi-
tioning, a meeting spon-
sor, told the members,
"Walton County is spe-
cial. It sets itself apart
from Okaloosa and Des-
tin and Bay County. It
is more family oriented
and it draws a better
class of visitors. ...Real-
tor friends we deal with
are saying they are run-
ning out of inventory.
So I think we've got a
real bright future com-
ing up."
Beth Jones of Ham-
mock Bay also wel-
comed the group and
reported that the de-
velopment enjoyed
a, "wonderful year in
2012," when more than
100 homes were sold.
She commented that
people living south of
the bay have moved
here to take advantage
of the quieter lifestyle.
She expressed hope
that 2013 would be an
even better year for the
development.
Matthew Avery, vice
president of engineering
for CHELCO addressed
the crowd on the subject
of leadership. He said,
"The more I learn about


it, the more I see how
blessed we are to have
the Walton Area Cham-.
ber and the things that
they do for us. And
then, our membership;
that's really what it's all
about. There wouldn't
be a chamber if it wasn't
for all of you who sup-
port.the chamber."
Avery said, "I attend
the United Methodist
Church, and one of the
things we say there is,
'No perfect people al,
lowed.' ... And that's
true in leadership. We
are not perfect and
we're all going to make
mistakes. ...Sometimes
the more responsibility
you have, the greater
impact that mistakes


Wright, backed up by
Councilman Ron Kel-
ley's pledge to support
the board's consensus
pick, made the first mo-
tion to offer the job to
Carman, the first of two
applicants interviewed
at a special meeting
Tuesday. However,
Councilmen Henry En-
nis and Wayne Graham
opposed; favoring the
other applicant, Grace
Harrison, meaning the
motion lacked the 5-0
vote needed to go ahead.
Ennis and Graham then
made and seconded a
motion to hire Harri-
son, a move which.once
again resulted in a 3-2
split vote.
The Council mem-
bers were able to reach
the unanimous decision
for Carman, but only
after much further dis-
cussion in which all five
members of the board
agreed that either can-
didate would be more
than capable of han-
dling finance manager's
duties. However, the
Council's preference
for Carman's municipal
government experience
and managerial skills
gleaned from a 13-year
tenure with the city of

can have. So how we re-
spond to those mistakes
is a sign of the quality
of leader that you are."
Avery then presented I
and expanded on leader-
ship principles that he
believes are essential.
These include: 1) It is
up to the leader to find
the potential and value
in each of his people
and make them the best
that they can be. 2) To
communicate better, be
consistent, do not speak.
over the head of people
and always be courte-
ous. 3) Great leaders

their jobs. 4) Create a PATTY REIHL, a supervisor in the Walton

Gen. Bill Maxson dead at 82: active volunteer

in area government and civic projects


By BEN PRAFTON
Air Force Maj. Gen.
William (Bill) B. Max-
son (ret.), formerly a
resident of Freeport,
and a generous con-
tributor of his time and
talents as a volunteer
to local government
and civic projects and
endeavors, and as a
speaker at local events
has passed away, at age
82, from complications
following a long hospi-


talization after heart
valve surgery in Jack-
sonville, Fla.
Maxson was born in
Akron, Ohio, on Sept.
4, 1930, the son of Her-
burt and Laura Max-
son. He graduated from
the U. S. Naval Acade-
my in 1952 and elected
to serve in the U. S. Air
Force.
Soon after gradua-
tion he married Nancy
Hewett of Lakewood,
Ohio. They celebrated


U.S. AIR FORCE MAJ. GEN. WILLIAM B.
MAXSON, ret. (UtSAFphoto)


their 60th wedding an-
niversary in 2012.
Maxson had a dis-
tinguished 32 year Air
Force career in which
he flew 281 combat
strike missions in the
Vietnam War and
served as command-
ing officer of combat,
research, and mainte-
nance organizations,
including the Air Force
Weapons Development
Center at Eglin Air
Force Base, two Strate-
gic Air Command wings
and the Lowry Techni-
cal Training Center. He
also served as a senior
staff officer in the office
of the Secretary of De-
fense at the Pentagon.
He was the recipient of
many awards for valor
and leadership includ-
ing the Distinguished
Flying Cross, the Silver
Star, 15 Air Medals,
two Distinguished Ser-
vice Medals and three
Legions of Merit. He
was also awarded the
Defense Superior Ser-
vice Medal for his ser-
vice in the office of the
Secretary of Defense.
In 1984, after retir-
ing from the Air Force
in Washington, D.C.,
Maxson spent five years
as vice president, re-
search and development
of Cypress Internation-
al. In 1989 he retired
from this position and
he and Nancy moved
to northwest Florida
where they lived for a
time in Destin before
moving to their home


on LaGrange Bayou,
just south of Freeport,
where they lived until
2011 when they moved
again to a retirement
community in Jackson-
ville.
Maxson was always
very interested in ser-
vice to his community.
In this regard, he was
a founding member of
Northwest Florida State
College's Institute for
Senior Professionals.
He gave his time freely
and served as a member
of the Planning Com-
mission for Okaloosa
County and as a mem-
ber of other boards and
study groups in Walton,
County.
Truly a fine leader, he.
was quiet spoken, eas-
ily understood, a great
pleasure to work with.
He will be missed.
Maxson is survived
by his wife Nancy; their
daughter Suzanne, her
husband John Maltz,
their children Eric,
Ryan, Kyle and Drew;
and the Maxson's son,
NOAA Captain Rob-
ert Maxson (ret.), his
wife Mary Ellen and
their children Katelyn,
Leigh, husband Matt
and Lilla. His remains
were cremated and fam-
ily services will be held
at a later date in Clyde,
Ohio.

DFS Planning Board

recommends approval of

phase II for Hunters Ridge


TERRY DAWKINS (c) chats with Planning Board member Bruce Naylor
(r) before getting down to business as the newest appointed member of the De-
Funiak Springs Planning Board.


By ALICIA LEONARD
The DeFuniak
Springs Planning Board
met at their regularly
scheduled meeting on
Jan 7. Planning Board
Chair Ryan Douglass
called the meeting to
order before recogniz-
ing newly appointed
member Terry Dawk-
ins. Dawkins was ap-
pointed to the board by
DeFuniak Springs City
Council member Paul
"Mac" Work to fill the
position held prior by
Don Truitt.
The only item be-


fore the board was the
request for a prelimi-
nary as well as final
plat approval for Hunt-
ers Ridge Subdivision
Phase II for lots 11-27.
The reason for the dual
approval request was
the infrastructure for
both phase I and II was
bonded and met all cbde
requirements overseen
by the city's engineer at
the time of the phase I
platting.
Emerald Coast Asso-
ciates provided a letter
of Infrastructure Cer-
tification Completion


to go along with the
request. After a short
discussion by board
members to make sure
all codes required by
the city were met, the
board approved the re-
quest unanimously and
recommended approval
of the request to the city
Council.
The board then
moved to unanimously
approve the meeting
schedule for 2013 before
adjourning. The next
planning board meeting
is scheduled for Feb. 4,
21013.


CHELCO executive trades fast-paced career for outdoors


Choctawhatchee
Electric Cooperative
Inc. Vice President of
Corporate Services
Mike Richards is retir-
ing after more than 39
years of service.
"It's been a good run,"
he said. "This is a great
place to work. It always
has been. It has been
fun because the people
are great."
Richards, a third-
generation resident of
Walton County, started
at CHELCO May 1,
1973, and quickly took
on the task of making
publicly known all of
the right-of-way that
belonged to the co-op.
His goal was to make
sure property own-
ers and those thinking
about buying property
knew where CHELCO
had easements. This
way no one would be
surprised when a buck-
et truck appeared to
erect new distribution
lines or perform other
necessary work.
As the years, passed
and his responsibilities
grew, Richards saw, and
in many cases oversaw,
automation taking root
at CHELCO. Among his
last duties was manag-
ing the installation of
a fiber-optic security
system at the CHELCO
Operations Center.
Though his career
at CHELCO produced
countless memories,
Richards noted his
fondest were created
when the situation was
worst dealing with

the aftermath of pow-
erful storms. In two
instances, hurricanes
caused electricity out-
ages to every CHELCO
member.

"It was at those times
that I felt like I was at
my very best," he said.
"And not just me. It was
everybody else."
The former vice pres-
ident also mentioned
the changes he has ob-
served in the attitudes
of co-op members. To-
day's member also is a
very sophisticated con-
sumer, which requires
an organization that
can move quickly to
solve problems.
"The biggest change
that I saw, and it
produced significant
challenges, is the ex-
pectations of the mem-
bership," he said.
With a smile, Rich-
ards described himself
as a multitasker and in
retirement his task will
be to decide when to
fish, hike, bike or golf.
A slideshow at Rich-
ards's retirement party
captured his longev-
ity as a CHELCO em-
ployee. Many black

showed evidence of
changing fashions and

years.
In one image, he's
helping fill a pothole
with sand. In another,
he's wearing a tuxedo.
Richards thanked his
wife, Debbie, and their
daughters, sons-in-law
and grandchildren for
the support they showed
through the years.
His dedication and
skill were praised by
those who attended.
Among them were
other CHELCO vice
presidents and Chief
Executive Officer Leigh
Grantham.
"He's the most re-
sourceful person. If you
needed to find some-
thing, if you needed
help, you would always
call Mike," she said.
"Mike Richards has a
work ethic that just
won't quit. He makes
himself indispensable."
What Richards. re-
ceived in praise, he re-
turned.
By name and anec-
dote, he thanked many
in the audience for help-
ing him do his job better.

Richards also offered a

he said. "Thank you for

you are successful."

By BRUCE COLLIER
Editor

This week's edition of the Herald Breeze con-
tains an article about the first of the proposed four
public workshops to be held on the future course
of the South Walton Tourist Development Council
(TDC), specifically its current building, which has
problems. Reporter Dotty Nist attended the first
(on the morning of Jan. 7). Aside from the TDC
executive director, TDC and county staff, an en-
gineering consultant and a guy videotaping the
meeting, only six citizens showed up.
The meeting was at 9 a.m., yes, so I know that
many people could not attend because they were
working. It is to be hoped that more will attend
the evening meetings. There's a lot of stuff being
discussed, and much of it involves money.
The county commission has already awarded a
contract to address some of the health and safety
deficiencies that have been identified in the build-
ing. As it happens, more have turned up in addi-
tion to those. The county commission has set aside
$1.5 million and authorized TDC to negotiate on
these. And that's where the workshops come in.
Though the number of citizen attendees at the
:Ja, ,7 workshop was only six, Dotty's article indi-
cates that they came prepared. There were a lot of
questions asked, a lot of suggestions made, and, I
hope, a lot of notes taken. I was interested to read
that one attendee expressed concern that the pric-
es of agreed-on changes needed to be provided be-
fore asking the public for input. TDC Executive Di-
rector Dawn Moliterno observed that citizens have
been expressing the desire to be involved from the
very beginning, before talking money. I wish Dawn
luck in reconciling these two viewpoints. She some-
times must feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland.
She's'right, when she says that, "no matter what,
we have to remedy the building." The TDC build-
ing, as it is now, is not a healthy place to be, espe-
cially for entire workdays. There's mold and mil-
dew, for one thing. I know a lot of people (including
myself) who simply could not work in a place with
a lot of mold and mildew. Also, there are federal
disability accommodation guidelines that need to
be met they aren't negotiable and other safety
issues. If the cost of fixing up the existing building
gets much higher, then it might be more economi-
cal to just build anew, in whatever configuration
and on whatever property is decided. Limited ac-
cess and inadequate parking are annoying and
counterproductive, but they don't involve health
and safety deficiencies, any one of which carries
potential liability in the case of even a single ac-
cident or claim. If you think someone wouldn't love
to sue Walton County, you obviously don't live in
Walton County (or anywhere else in America).
In any event, can we get more than six people to
show up?

LETTERS TOTHEEDITORSu


Editor:

On Dec. 10, 2012 Walton County hauled in 17
loads of Alabama clay on Sexton Road; there was
nothing wrong with our road. I sent an email to
Stafford on the 11th or 12th because the dump
trucks were using my driveway as a turnaround
point, every time this happens they do some kind.
of damage and do not fix their mess. I have called
several times over the last three weeks complain-
ing about my driveway I personally talked to Bob
Newsome and sent emails to our so called county
commissioner which I am not very impressed with
him at all he does not respond.
In talking to Bob I told him that I had already
requested the county dump trucks not use my
driveway due to the damages that they cause
because the county will not do the repairs. He
informed me that they should not have fixed my
driveway the last time that I complained about the
damages; well I pay taxes here and live in Walton
County when the county damages my driveway
they need to fix it and that is why they had to fix it
last time.
Neither Stafford nor Bob live here in Walton
County and they don't pay taxes here. I called last
week and talked to the Road Department for Dis-
trict 3 and was told by Wayne who answered the
phone we don't have a grader man so it will not
get fixed this week. I called again yesterday to the
Public Works office and of course no one was there
to talk to other than the Administrative Assis-
tant. We have had a lot of rain over the last week
and as the Acting Public Works Director Stafford
should have been taking care of problems instead
of off hunting.
I am tired of my car bottoming out the county
will not fix the repairs


that have to be done to my car so they need to get
up off the lazy backside and fix my road that they
destroyed with hauling in the Alabama clay there
is now three problem areas my driveway a deep
rut and where the pavement ends on Sexton Road
this one has always been a problem it washes a
deep rut there.
I have lived on Sexton Road since 1998 and at
the top of the hill this road was not wide enough
for two cars to pass you would have to stop to wait
on one or the other to go by. Also this goes thru the
middle of Mr. Burney and Joseph Stento's prop-
erty but' the county has widen it thru there over
the years taking more of the owner's property. I
also talked to Clarence Hobbs who was the Road
Foreman for District Three until he was railroaded
out by the big wigs he told me that he had gotten
on to the road graders because they keep coming
over closer to the light poles they have taken up
so much of the road now until a couple of the light
poles are right there at the edge of the road.
I do not call the county and complain that much
but when I do they know it. I worked for Walton
County for almost eight years five of which was
in District 1 Road Department so I do know how
the county works. We are expecting more rain
this week which will make more damages because
they will not have time to fix them before the rain
comes in. All I want is for Walton County to fix
their sloppy mess and my driveway where they
did not completely put dirt to connect to my drive-
way. I also do not want the dump trucks using my
driveway for a turnaround Sexton Road is not that
long they can go out the other end and go around.

Editor:
To the people of Walton County. I want people
to understand about the interlock device they put
in your vehicle. Now, if you get a D.U.I., besides
bonding out of jail, lawyer fees, court costs, com-
munity service, 10 days of vehicle impoundment,
D.U.I. school, COPE classes, it all adds up to
$5,000 to $10,000.
Now the D.M.V. had to get in on the money too.
They put an interlock device in your vehicle. And
I have three words for the device. Entrapment
money scam. That's all it is. It cost $175 to $250 to
have it installed and $77 a month until you get it
removed. And you have to drive 120 to 140 miles


back and forth every month to have it serviced.
That's gas money too. You know I would not be so
upset with a D.U.I. ifI was on the road driving, but
like I said I have a conversion van with everything
I need in it. It is crazy they arrest you for having
keys in your hand. Don't you have to get in your
vehicle. It doesn't mean you're going anywhere. If
you have something to say write me.
What the police do to people is wrong. It's all
about the money. Ruin peoples life. Money, mon-
ey, money, that's all it is. People do have rights.

Editor:
Happy Pope Gregory New Year!
In 1582, Ugo Boncomagni became Pope Gregory
VIII and approved the calender that we use today.
Among his other deeds were his attempts to kill
Queen Elizabeth I when thousands of French prot-
estants were killed. Pope Gregory was so happy he
had a Mass of Thanksgiving and hired a painter to
paint a picture of the slaughter. While he allowed
prostitution and convents to become brothels, he
forced Jews to attend sermons. He had a mistress
and appointed one of his sons to the position of
Cardinal. While claiming to be the representa-
tive of Christ on the earth, his life like many other
Popes was far from Christ and the ways of the Bi-
ble.
The Bible tells us that the New Year is the spring
month call Aviv. It is the month God brought Isra-
el out of Egypt, remembered in the Passover each
year. All of the Holy Days in the Bible are dated
from the month of Aviv, which is now called Nis-


san, and begins March 12.
It is also in the month of Aviv on Passover that
Christ died to save those who would believe in
him.
Many of the people who came to America came to
get away from the Catholic oppression in Europe.
Protestants and Jews were often expelled, impris-
oned, tortured and killed by the Catholic Church.
Bibles were outlawed by the Catholic Church and
translators were killed and many Bibles were
burned.
Today we can read the Bible freely but there
is a growing opposition to it in America even. We
have a choice today to live by God's commands or
by the commands of the Pope and governments un-
der their control. I'm saving my happy New Year
Greeting until Aviv, March 12, when God said:
"This month shall be the first month of the year to
you." Exodus 12:1

The first week into
January, and it's time
to evaluate New Year's
Resolutions-even
those left unsaid.
Several years ago, in-
stead of making restric-
tive resolutions that
led to.failuie, remorse
or self-loathing just in
time for Valentine's
Day (a perfectly timed
holiday to drown one's
inadequacies in boxes
of "I still love me" choc-
olates), I resolved to
make resolutions that
I could look forward to
achieving. Things like,
improve your heart
health: enjoy a glass of
red wine.
This year, I shifted
my resolutions back
to more serious self-
improvement 'topics.
Could be because 13
has been an especially
lucky number for me
and at the end of this
year, by keeping my
resolutions, I will have
accomplished goals that
bring me closer to the
person I want to be and
the life I want to lead.
I believe the rea-
son we are compelled
to make resolutions is


because we recognize
the innate need to ex-
amine ourselves and
determine whether we
approve of what we find
introspectively.
It is each person's
duty to make his/her
life beautiful. God has
given us a perfect can-
vas of Earth and sea
and sky, and an abun-
dance of tools: a mind
to think, a heart to love,
and a soul to explore.
It is our obligation to
make the greatest use
of all we've been given.
How do we know if
we are maximizing our
talents and potential?
In the words of Alabama
Head Coach and Na-
tional Champion Nick
Saban (Roll Tide!), nev-
er be satisfied. Neverlet
good enough be enough.
Never stop thinking of
how to make tomorrow
better, and in the words
of C.S. Lewis, remem-
ber, "There are far, far
better things ahead
than any we leave be-
hind."
Happy 2013!. May
the next 12 months see
all of your goals accom-
plished.

WCHD lifts mosquito-borne alert for WC


The Walton County
Health Department
has lifted the mosquito-
borne disease alert for
Walton County. Sur-
veillance data indicate
that the risk of hu-
man infection has de-
creased.

Although mosquito-
borne illnesses are less
common in the winter
months, it is important
that residents of Wal-
ton County continue to
observe the proper pre-
cautions to avoid being


bitten by mosquitoes
that may cause disease.
The easiest and
best way to avoid West
Nile Virus (WNV) is
to prevent mosquito
bites. The best pre-
ventive measure for
residents living in ar-
eas infested with mos-
quitoes is to eliminate
the places where the
mosquito lays her eggs,
primarily artificial con-
tainers that hold water.
To prevent mosquitoes
from living and mul-
tiplying around your


home or business:
DRAIN standing wa-
ter to stop mosquitoes
from multiplying:
Drain water from
garbage cans, house
gutters, buckets, pool
covers, coolers, toys,
flower pots or any other
containers where sprin-
kler or rain water has
collected.
*Discard old tires,
drums, bottles, cans,
pots and pans, broken
appliances and other
items that are not being
used.


Empty and clean
birdbaths and pet's wa-
ter bowls at least once
or twice a week.
Protect boats and
vehicles from rain with
tarps that don't accu-
mulate water.
SMaintain swimming
pools in good condition
and appropriately chlo-
rinated. Empty plastic
swimming pools when
not in use.
Cover skin with
clothing or repellent:
Clothing: Wear
shoes, socks, and long
pants and long-sleeves.
This type of protection


may be necessary for
people who must work
in areas where mosqui-
toes are present.
Repellant: Apply
mosquito repellent to
bare skin and clothing.
Use mosquito netting to
protect children young-
er than 2 months old.
Cover doors and
widows with screens:
Keep mosquitoes
out of your house. Re-
pair broken screen-
ing on windows, doors,
porches and patios.
The Walton County
Health Department
(WCHD), in conjunc-


tion with the Florida
Department of Health
will continue to perform
surveillance for mosqui-
to-borne illnesses.

pects growth from the
people around him. 5)
Good leaders surround
themselves with people
from whom they can
learn.

Debby McKinney, an
experienced entrepre-
neur and owner/man-
ager in several busi-
nesses, is a mentor for
Patty Reihl, a supervi-
sor in the Walton Coun-
ty Tax Collector's office.
These two, who have
been working together
for about four months,
gave the audience an
overview of the WACC's
Walton Build Program.
McKinney said "I was
asked to be a mentor for
the Build Program. ...I
have mentored lots of
people but never in a
structured program. As
far as the mentoring,
it's bringing together
people and matching
them with somebody in
business. Leadership
Walton does its best to
match people in the pro-
gram and in our case we


have really worked well
together."
Reihl said, "The Lead-
ership Walton Mentor-
ing Program came to
the [Tax Collector's] of-
fice in 2008. Miss Rhon-
da [Skipper] was our
first participant in the
program. She thought
it would be a great fit
for our office and in-
cluded it in our leader-
ship development. Four
of our supervisors and
an assistant supervisor
have graduated from
the program. ...The pro-
gram teaches trust as
leaders, time manage-
ment, team building
and listening skills just
to name a few subjects.
When you set your goals
you want to be specific,
measurable, actionable,
realistic, and have a
time line."
Reihl continued,
"Miss Debby [McKin-
ney] and I have met
several times. ...At the
end of each meeting we
make our notes about
what we are going to
be doing until we meet


again. ...She asked me
to do a personal vision
and mission statement.
She always leaves the
door open for me if I
have any questions I
can call her, I can e-
mail her, I can text her,
and it doesn't take her
but seconds to get back
to me. Miss Debby has
a lot to offer me and it's
up to me to make the
most of it."
McKinney followed
up saying, "As far as the
Walton Build Program,
here are the things that
are a mentor: it's about
development, it's about
listening, it's about en-
couraging, it's teaching
the mentee to be a men-
tor. So, it's not just be-
ing a mentor to Patty,
it's developing her so
that she can be a mentor
to others. It's to inspire,
to give feedback, to pro-
vide an open door, and
so as a mentor, Patty
may think she's getting
a lot out of it, but I get a
lot more than she does.
You can't give without
getting."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 10,2013


NWFSC activities


center opens Jan. 16


Northwest Florida
State College (NWFSC)
will hold a Grand Open-
ing and Open House
on Wednesday, Jan. 16
from 1-3 p.m., at the
Niceville Campus for
the college's new Activi-
ties Center.
The major reno-
vation of the 31,675
square foot building,
formerly known as the
College Mall, into the
college's Activities Cen-
ter was the final phase.
of a $25.5 million proj-
ect that also included
construction of a new
3-story Student Servic-
es Center which opened
in January 2012.
The new Activities
Center houses the col-
lege's Academic Success
Center, which provides


free tutoring and aca-
demic support for NWF-
SC students; a new col-
lege store operated by
Barnes & Noble which
includes a coffee shop
that exclusively serves
Starbucks coffee; and
offices for the college's
extensive Student Ac-
tivities program.
Offices of Florida's
Great Northwest, an
independent economic
development organiza-
tion, are also located in
the Activities Center.
The Grand Opening
event will include a rib-
bon cutting ceremony
at 1 p.m. at the west en-
trance to the building,
facing the new court-
yard between the ac-
tivities center and the
student services cen-


ter. The grand opening
will showcase each of
the three main aspects
of the activities center,
with open house, tours
and refreshments, as
well as recognize the
newly named Janet Na-
del Morell Conference
Room in the adjacent
Student Services Cen-
ter. Recognition of the
naming of the Morell
conference room, lo-
cated on the third floor
of the Student Services
Center in the Costa
Leadership Instituje,
will include an addition-
al open house as part of
the overall event.
The late Janet Na-
del Morell, formerly of
Niceville, Fla., passed
away in 2004. Family
members Bob and Ven-
ita Morell of Niceville
and Susan and David
Cohen of Potomac, Md.,
established the Janet
Nadel Morell endow-
ment to name the large
community conference
room at the college's
Costa Leadership Insti-
tute. Earnings from the
endowment will provide
funds for equipment,
instruction and pro-
gram needs of the Costa
Leadership Institute in
memory of Morell, who
moved to Niceville at
age 79 and enjoyed the
many community and
cultural offerings of the
college.
The public is invited
to all portions of the
Grand Opening event.
Parking is available in
the lots adjacent to the
Student Services Center
and the public should
follow the signs to the
Activities Center.
Opening ceremonies
begin at 1 p.m. at the
Activities Center west
entrance with recep-
tions and open house of
all facilities beginning
at 1:15 p.m.
For information, con-
tact the NWFSC Of-
fice of Marketing and
Public Relations at

MS. NELLIE PRYOR with her nine-foot colossal
collard.


Pryor grows a

nine-foot collard


Two years ago, Ms.
Nellie Pryor of the
Darlington community
planted her winter col-
lards in a circle in her
yard. When spring time
came, she cut the flower
heads back to prevent
them from making
seeds.
But one came back
with a "vim" and has
grown to be nine feet
tall. The others re-
mained normal size.
She has been ques-
tioned frequently about
the possibility that she
may have given this
plant more attention
than the others, she
says she gave them all
the same amount of wa-
ter and fertilizer. She
doesn't have any expla-
nation for it's extreme
overgrowth.
Ms. Nellie would like
to know if any other gar-
deners may have had a
similar experience.
It has been suggest-
ed that this just might
be one for the Guiness
Book of Word Records,
but her daughter-in-
law checked that out
and found that one had
grown to be 14 feet tall.
So, not this time, Ms
Nellie. But keep up the


good work. Who knows
where it may go.

CARMAN CONTINUED


Tallahassee's treasury
department was ulti-
mately.the deciding fac-
tor. A final motion to
offer the job to Carman
was met with a straight
5-0 vote.
Carman accepted
the position at a salary
of $70,000, matching
that of former Finance
Director John McCue,
and he will start next
week, just in time for
next Monday's regular-
ly scheduled City Coun-
cil meeting. Carman,
who described himself
as a man of deep spiri-
tual conviction, at first
wanted a few days to
consider the Council's
offer, but eventually
gave them his final de-
cision, saying that he
and his wife had spent
time in prayer over the
possible outcomes of
his interview with the
Council.
"My wife and I have
very strong faith," Car-
man said. "I truly be-
lieve this is where I
need to be."
Over the course of the
interview, the Council
learned that Carman
had a diverse profes-
sional background, first


as treasury analyst for
the city of Tallahassee
and before that with a
Tampa subsidiary of
Time magazine as a fi-
nancial analyst. This
mixture of public and
private sector experi-
ence gave him the goods
to check off most of the
Council's boxes, which
included customer re-
lations, accountability,
the ability to adapt to
change, and a deep well
of knowledge regarding
finance and accounting.
The Council members
were also impressed
with Carman's philoso-
phy regarding manage-
ment, which he said
boils down to "treating
everybody as adults"
while still having a good
time with other employ-
ees.
"I believe in treating
everyone as adults and
letting them do their
jobs," Carman said.
"We're at work eight
hours a day, and that's
probably longer than
we spend at home with
our families. If you can't
enjoy what you're doing
then nobody wants to
show up to work and
then nothing will get

done. A sense of humor
can defuse a tense situ-
ation."
Though Carman and
his family currently
live in Oviedo in cen-
tral Florida, he said he
will stay with his own
parents, who live in
nearby Crestview, un-
til the end of the school
year when his wife and
daughter will move to
the Panhandle to join
him. Carman, originally
a history major before
later getting a master's
degree in accounting,
said DeFuniak Springs'
historical wealth, along
with the opportunity to
develop professionally
in a long-term career
that made use of his
skills and experience,
were what attracted
him to the city and the
job of finance director.

After accepting the
Council's job offer, he
reassured the board
members that he was
the right man for the job.
"I'm willing to work," he
said. "I'm willing to get
the job done right the
first time and on time.
I will give you 150 per-
cent."

was unveiled at the U.S. 90 location on Jan. 7. "This is one of the first stores
in the state to display our new look logo," said Keeney. "We chose this site due
to the outstanding volume of sales and our continuing partnership with Ritz
Food Stores. The new logo coincides with the lottery's 25th anniversarywand we
felt it was time to enhance our look." According to Keeney, Walton County has
received $23.9 million since 1988 for use in pre-K through college age students.
Last year Walton County received $638,700 for the Bright Futures program.

Woodmen of the World

present American flag

and flagpole to cemetery


By.
JEFFREY POWELL

Established in 1899,
the Black Creek Memo-
rial Cemetery serves
as a final resting place
for members of the
tight-knit Black Creek
community and their
extended family mem-
bers. As with many
small church cemeter-
ies, the grounds upkeep
is a constant concern
due to manpower and
monetary concerns. A
few years ago the Black
Creek Memorial Cem-
etery Committee decid-
ed to remove excessive
vegetation and hired
groundskeeper Huey
Lee Evans. In this same
spirit local Woodman of
the World Lodge 10 re-
cently made a donation
of a flagpole and Ameri-
can flag to the Cem-
etery. On Friday, Jan
4, several Woodmen of
the World members and
cemetery committee
members gathered at
the cemetery for a small
dedication ceremony.
The event was led by
president of Lodge 10
Charley Aultman who
has many family mem-
bers interred in the
cemetery.
"The Woodmen of the


World are very happy
to present this flagpole
and flag to the cem-
etery," said Aultman,
who installed the pole
himself. "No other orga-
nization buys and gives
away more flags than
we do. This is a good
day for the cemetery."
The cemetery holds a
number of veterans and
was the site for one of
the largest known funer-
als in the Freeport area
when Jackson County
Sheriffs Deputy Mike
Altman was laid to rest
after being killed in the
line of duty in 2007.
"We are very grateful
to the Woodmen of the
World for this donation,"
said Black Creek Me-
morial Cemetery Chair-
person Marie Taunton.
"My thanks go out to
this organization. I feel
this certainly enhances
our already beautiful
cemetery. I also appre-
ciate everyone that at-
tended this ceremony
and my special thanks
to Huey Lee Evans for
his work in the upkeep
of the cemetery."

rial Cemetery sits ad-
jacent to Black Creek

Church near CR-3280

community together

By REID TUCKER
Husband-and-wife
team Dave Palmer
and Heather Johnson
haven't just cornered
the market in Paxton
with their new busi-
ness, their new busi-
ness is, literally, the
market in Paxton.
The outdoor farmers
market, that is. And
the caf6 selling healthy
sandwiches, from-
scratch desserts and
fresh-ground coffee
roasted the same week
it goes on sale. And the
gift shop where about
three-quarters of all
items, whether baby
clothes, candles, wine-
glasses, handbags or
college sports-themed
holiday wreaths, are
handmade by the own-
ers, their friends and
other local folks.
It took six months
of hard work renovat-
ing their building and
constructing the out-
door sales area, but as
of Friday, Dec. 15, the
Florida Farmers Mar-
ket, located just across
U.S. 331 North from
Paxton Town Hall,
is open for business.
Palmer said he sees
the business as some-
thing of a starting
point toward putting
Paxton on the map.
"Our goal is to have
mostly locally made or
locally grown things
on sale," he said. "It's
all about community.
We're trying to have a


central location where
people in the commu-
nity can grow together.
We want to get people
to stop in Paxton be-
cause a lot of people,
even people from Flor-
ida, don't know where
Paxton is, and that's a
shame. We're trying to
change that."
Everything about
the eclectic retail loca-
tion, from the cool green
walls encompassing
the 2,500 square feet
of retail space to the
couch-stocked coffee-
sipping area (complete
with free wi-fi) was
aimed at bringing the
community together,
Johnson said. A well-
traveled Paxton na-
tive who spent time in
South America, John-
son said there was an-
other* related goal she
and her husband had
in mind for the farm-
ers market.
"We wanted to cre-
ate a place that we
would want to be a
part of and a place we
would want to hang
out at," she said. "And
if there's good food and
good coffee, we're going
to be there. No mat-
ter what your cultural
background is, food is
a glue that binds com-
munities together."
Palmer and John-
son said the initial
response to the grand
opening was fair, with
about 50 customers
coming through the


doors on the first two
days the store was
open, as word was
primarily spread via
Facebook. Despite
waiting for a Health
Department inspec-
tion and a maximum
occupancy report from
the Fire Marshal's of-
fice before the caf6
can come online, the
outdoor sales area is
ready to accept sellers
of fresh produce, ag-
ricultural products or
handmade goods. The
88-foot long pergola
(basically an open-air
structure with 12-by-
12 booths for vendors)
was set up with con-
venience in mind, as
Palmer, who had to
become a carpenter to
construct it, meant for
vendors to simply let
down their tailgates
and sell their wares
right off the back of a
pickup.
In keeping with the
theme of convenience,
the Florida Farmers
Market operates a
little differently from
other similar markets
in that vendors will be
given a ticket book in
which to write receipts
to their customers, who
will pay at the regis-
ter inside the main
building. Processing
all payments through
the computer point-of-
sale system means the
farmers market can
collect its commission
on the back end while


simultaneously allow-
ing customers to use
credit cards. This also
makes it easier for
vendors, who get paid
before they leave for
the day, by eliminat-
ing the need to make
change out of a cash
box.
"[Farmers] can show
up with empty pock-
ets and a truckload of
food and leave with
the money they earned
selling their food,"
Palmer said. "This is
also an advantage for
the customer, since
everything is kept up
with on the computer
system. If they want
to buy a sandwich, a
baseball hat and 50
sweet potatoes they
can pay for it in one
transaction.
"We wanted to do
it right. We didn't
want to throw up some
shack out here for a
farmers market. No-
body wants to eat at
a joint like that. We
want people to come in
and be comfortable in
their surroundings."
Despite all the late
nights of work from.
the Florida Farmers
Market team, which
includes four employ-
ees besides the own-
ers, it could not have
opened had it not been
for help from others
in the city, includ-
ing other businesses.
Palmer and Johnson
bought most all con-
struction supplies in-
cluding plumbing and


paint from Tri-County
Hardware and Farm
Supply (their next-
door neighbor), and
Dennis Gamble, the
owner, even opened
on Sunday and after
hours to help make
deliveries. Further-
more, support from
the Town Council was
a major part of getting
the farmers market op-
erational while other
retail projects like the
Dollar General store
didn't pan out.
"City Hall has been
very helpful to us,"
Johnson said. "We re-
ally appreciate the
Council and city staff.
Suzan (Imfeld) and
Judy (Williams) have
helped us through the
red tape. I think Su-
zan and Judy have had
so much to do with our
business even exist-
ing in the first place.
They're our cheerlead-
ers."
Both Johnson and
Palmer are of an en-
trepreneurial mind-
set and owning and
operating a business
like the Florida Farm-
ers Market is, more
than anything else, a
dream come true for
the couple. They met
online two years ago
and, after hours-long
phone calls and we-
bcam conversation,
Palmer, a Montgom-
ery, Ala., native who.
lived most of his life
in Atlanta, eventually
moved sight-unseen to
Paxton. It wasn't long


before the two of them
were married and be-
gan making plans to
open their own busi-
ness, such was the al-
lure of being one's own
boss (while drinking
lots of coffee and hang-
ing out with people),
Palmer said.
"We both always
wanted to be self-em-
ployed and we decided
what we would only do
what we loved," John-
son said. "It's a strug-
gle to do that but it's
worth the struggle. We
want to do something
where we can spend
time with each other
and spend time with
our kid, and being self-
employed is the best
way to do that. Life
is short, so you might
as well do what you
love."
All this goes back
to what Palmer, who
has completely ad-
opted Paxton as his
hometown, set out to
do when he and his
wife first dreamed up
the farmers market: to
give the community a
greater sense of com-
munity. If helping to
make the town a shade
hipper happens as a
side effect, so much
the better.
"Pretty soon Paxton
will be the cool place to
hang out," he said.

WHS Class of 1963

reunion slated


HAPPY NEW YEAR from Miss DeFuniak Springs and members of her
court! Devero Bogart, Melanie Anderson, Ava Hayden and Jazmin Gomez
would like to send heartfelt blessings to everyone residing in this area. Their
prayer is that the year 2013 will bring abundant life, love, and laughter to the
community they love.



Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,
I love the start of a
new year. The feeling
of a clean slate to start
over on always invigo-
rates me until I.slowly
lose interest in my reso-
lution and slip back into
my old habits. I would
really like to make some
changes stick this year.
Any advice on how to
make it happen?

New year new me
Dear new year,.
I think many of us
are in the same boat.
Out and about this week
I spoke with several
people about their new
year's resolutions. Some
picked healthier habits,
some chose to try and
focus on home matters
more, like spending
more time with family
and some told me they
didn't do resolutions
at all. I agree there
is something exciting
about opening that new
calendar and seeing all
365 days of possibility
spread before us.
But, experts say that
biting off more than we
can chew often derails
our attempts at self-
improvement. Seems
scientists believe we
have a limited reserve
of self-control. When we
overextend or tax our
supply, we often wind
up defeated and in a
downward spiral. In es-


sence, they believe that
small goals and not too
many are achievable,
but setting our sights
too high more often
than not leads to disap-
pointment.
So, my advice would
be to pick the one goal
you really want to
achieve and leave the
rest for another year.
Then, focus on it alone
and break it down into
doable pieces and you
will have a greater
chance of success. Oth-
er experts also believe
that you need to make
those goals very mea-
surable and plan them
out. Such as, I will walk
one mile on Monday and
Wednesday. Then get
your calendar out and
check it off so you can
see your progress. This
will lead to a momen-
tum that will help you
feel positive and boost
your willpower. Or, you
can be like Auntie Em.
My goal this year is to
eat more chocolate and
take more naps. Right
now, I'm batting a hun-
dred and hope to keep
improving. Good luck
and God bless.
Auntie Em
Have a problem? Got
a question? Want to vent
about an issue and get
some feedback? Auntie
Em would love to hear
what's on your mind.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013

DFS Garden Club kicks off


year with

Story and photos by
JEFFREYPOWELL
The DeFuniak
Springs Garden Club
started off the new year
in style with a lunch
meeting at the home of
north Walton County
residents Joyce and
Sheila Anderson on Jan
2. Once everyone fin-
ished with their soup
and sandwiches, Regis-
tered Forester Vincent
Grund addressed the
large gathering. He dis-
cussed several different
planting techniques for
both fruit trees and gar-
den plants. The bulk of
the discussion though
was focused on prepar-
ing the soil for planting
large trees.
"The rule of thumb
for planting any tree
is to plant about the
same depth as the pot
you take the tree out


planting discussion


of," said Grund. "You
should also make the
hole about one and
one-half times the root
spread of the sapling.
Also hand dig the hole
if possible as power au-
gers sometimes glaze
the hole making it dif-
ficult for new roots to
spread."
Grund also suggested
using peat and mulch
in very sandy soil. He
pointed out that many
people make the mis-
take of buying the wrong
kinds of fruit trees for
the area. Many fruit
trees such as peaches
and apples have a chill
hour requirement which
cannot be met in the
Florida Panhandle. He
suggests not buying a
tree that requires more
than 450 chill hours.
When discussing plant-
ing a vegetable garden


he pointed out that
many areas require a
raised bed.
"Mr. Grund's presen-
tation was very infor-
mative and I appreciate
him coming here today,"
said meeting hostess
Joyce Anderson. "He
was very comfortable
with this group of la-
dies. He showed that he
is not only very knowl-
edgeable but he is also
willing to learn some-
thing new."
After the presenta-
tion everyone went out-
doors to have a little
hands-on learning. Gr-
und demonstrated sev-
eral of the tools he uses
in planting and looked
over some of the Ander-
sons' existing trees.
"I like this group of
ladies," Grund said.
"I enjoy sharing my
knowledge with them,

Keing tA eFait



SomeAssmbl


Do you know the
three most frightening
words in the English
language? "Some as-
sembly required." You
order something online;
a toy or a bicycle for
your children. Or you go
to a big box store to get
a grill or piece of patio
furniture.
When UPS brings it
to your door or you find
the item you're looking
Sfor in the store, it's not
ready to go like you saw
in the online catalog or
the advertisement in
Sunday's paper. "Some
assembly required," the
tag on the box says.
So, you lug this box
the size of a queen-sized
mattress out to the ga-
rage and open it. There
are buckets of screws,
connectors, rods and
unidentifiable small
pieces of plastic that
you will never use no
matter what the direc-
tions say. And for the
next six weeks you at-
tempt to put this thing
together.
The worst case for
me was construction of
the' dreaded children's
play set. When I was
growing up our swing
sets were just tubes of
lightweight aluminum.


If you were swinging too
high the front side of the
entire swing set would
rise off the ground a
solid foot. Now, we have
these play sets made
of concrete-anchored-
treated-timbers, and
screws the length of
baseball bats. Assembly
requires a civil engineer
and a degree from MIT.
When I bought one of
these behemoths for my
children I was in the
back yard with a slide
rule and a skill saw
for the entire summer.
And I lost all credibil-
ity with my neighbors.
There was no way they
were going to that pas-
tor's church, not with
the raging four-letter
obscenities flying out
of my mouth. When we
moved, to my children's
chagrin, I left the play
set there; not so much
as a gift to the family
that bought our house.
No way was I going to
disassemble it and at-
tempt to put it back to-
gether. Once was more
than enough.
Some assembly re-
quired: This is true of
the products you buy,
your relationships, the
children you are rais-
ing, and the person you


are becoming. We are all
works in progress, even
as this relates to our
faith. The Apostle Paul
said: "Continue to work
out your salvation." We
have been given this
wonderful gift of grace,
salvation and grace. We
have come to under-
stand God's love and
have answered a call to
a life of faith. This gift
is like getting a bicycle
in a box or a swing set
bound by straps and
smothered in Styro-
foam peanuts. It's like
possessing a new piece
of patio furniture but
it's in a dozen pieces,
the materials scattered
across the yard.
You've got to work
it out. You've got to
put it all together. You
can't ride the bike if it
stays in the box. You
can't play on the swing
set if it remains disas-
sembled. You can't en-
joy your furniture if you
don't connect the piec-
es. And faith will not be
what it is intended to be
- what God wants it to
be in your life if you
don't work it out, if you
don't open the box and
put it together. Maybe
faith has become such
a burden for some of us

because we're lugging
around on our backs the
box full of assorted spir-
itual materials rather
than putting it all to-
gether.
So much informs and
shapes our spirituality:
The reading of Scrip-
ture, prayer and fasting,
meditation and retreat,
good works done in the
name of Christ, service
of the poor, worship, pe-
riods of contemplation
and reflection, times of
doubt and frustration.
These all come together
to make us who we are.
Somehow these things
become transformation-
al in our lives. Somehow
these pieces fit together
to form something use-
ful, something valuable,
something that looks a
lot like faith.

So pop the bands off
the box that's waiting
for you in the garage.
Put on your work gloves
and break out the tool
chest. Call your neigh-
bor to lend a hand. Be-
fore you know it, all the
pieces might just fall
into place.

THE POWER OF PRA YER
For this reason, I kneel before the
Father, from whom His whole
family in heaven and on earth
deriues its name. Ephesians
3:14-15

The starting point of all
Christian prayer is the goodness
and power of God. If God were not powerful our
prayers would be pointless. If he were not good
they would be foolish. The Bible teaches us, and
our Lord Jesus Christ has demonstrated. that
God is of infinite power and goodness.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may
strengthen you with power through his Spirit in
your inner being. And I pray that you, being root-
ed and established in love. may have power, to-
gether with all the saints, to grasp how wide and
long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and
to know, this love that surpasses knowledge that
you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness
of God. Ephesians 3:16-19

Walton girls claim top spot in district bracket


with 71-28 victory over Pensacola Catholic


By REID TUCKER
The Lady Braves
came away with an-
other huge win against
Pensacola Catholic,
dropping the Crusaders
71-28 to guarantee Wal-
ton's girls a first-place
spot in the upcoming
district tournament.
The lopsided victory
makes Walton (12-7)
not only undefeated
against Catholic (6-10),
of the school's most per-
sistent rivals for years,
it also means the Lady
Braves have a perfect
3-0 record in district
.play, thus ensuring a
state playoff berth re-
gardless of the District
1-4A tournament. Wal-
ton hosted the game,
held Friday, Jan. 4,
which featured a domi-
nant performance by
junior Deja Tucker, who
scored 24 points on the
night. The Lady Cru-
saders' (1-3 in district
play) spread out their
scoring over most of the
roster, with KeAunni
Evans and Gabrielle
Clune bringing in six
points apiece.
Things started off


in fairly close fashion,
as Catholic took a two-
point lead early and
held on until nearly the
end of the first quarter.
However, Tucker tied
the game 6-all with 1:30
to go on a breakaway
layup, her weapon of
choice that evening,
and then pushed Wal-
ton ahead by one after
a trip to the foul line.
Krista McQueen, who
had 17 points on the
night, got an and-1 24
seconds later, and she
used her own chance
from the stripe to make
it a 10-6 lead for the
home team. Walton
never looked back from
that point, as Taliah
Moore sank a perimeter
shot with four seconds
showing on the clock
to put the Lady Braves
ahead by 13-7 at the
end of the period.
Pensacola Catho-
lic added seven points
in the second quar-
ter. Walton added 21.
Tucker and McQueen
had six points apiece in
the paint, while Moore,

longer-ranged 2-point-
ers and Kayla Jackson
supported with a 2-for-
2 showing at the free-
throw line to give Wal-
ton an insurmountable
34-14 lead at the break.
Walton was
roughly 50 percent from
the floor in the third
quarter, holding on to
a 20-plus-point advan-
tage after the intermis-
sion thanks to close-
range work from the
starters. Catholic had
another seven-point
quarter, .with Evans,
Rachel Burkhardt, Pha-
edra Harris and Lillian
Sheridan all contribut-
ing. After posting a 44-
20 lead at the period's
midway point, the Lady
Braves' defense went on
to hold their opponents
to four points in the re-
maining four minutes
to make the deficit 51-
24 by the start of the
last quarter.


It was the Lady
Braves' defense that
shone brightest in Q4,
as they held the Lady
Crusaders to 2-for-7
from the floor, all while
scoring on 7-of-13 shots
of their own when they
took the ball to the oth-
er end of the court. Wal-
ton's 55-24 lead with
6:52 to go in the game
meant a running-clock
mercy rule was in store,
but the Lady Braves
didn't stop there, as
they continued to pile
on the baskets up to
the end of the contest.
Perimeter scores from
Guice and Haley Paulk,
alongside six combined
points from McQueen
and Jackson, and four
hard-charging layups
from Tucker; including
one with less than a
minute remaining, ul-
timately resulted in a
20-4 scoring advantage
in the final period.

SW Girls Defeat Freeport


U By PATRICK CASEY
n The South Walton
Seahawks used a smoth-
ering defense to grab a
61-18 road victory over
county rival Freeport
on Friday night.
Casey Perot scored 17
points while teammates
Eve Heffron added 11
and Tayler Menard 10
as the Seahawks broke
a two-game losing
streak that closed out
2012.
South Walton (11-
5) saw all seven var-
sity players contribute
at least three or more
points on the night as
they raced to a 29-10
lead at the half.
The Seahawks hit
8-of-14 shots from the
floor in the third quar-
ter to stretch the mar-
gin to 48-18 after 24
minutes of competition.
Freeport, which
got eight points from
sophomore Mary Kate
Myrick, had only three
of their other six play-
ers score points as they
lost their third consecu-
tive game to fall to 6-9


overall.
South Walton lim-
ited Freeport to 7-of-40
shooting from the field
and forced 19 turnovers
from the Bulldogs as
they lost to their neigh-
bor to the south for the
12th consecutive time.
The Seahawks lit
up the -net on 24-of-51
shooting from the floor
to go with 8-of-ll shots
from the free throw
line.

Game Notes: In his
ninth season at the
helm, Kevin Craig may
have his best defen-
sive team in his time at
South Walton. The Sea-
hawks are allowing only
30.8 points per game
on defense through the
squad's first 16 games.
Craig holds an 18-2
mark against Freeport
and the Seahawks lead
the series 18-4 since it
began in 2003-04. The
South Walton junior
varsity earned a 32-16
win. The Glidewell fam-
ily worked the game

Sports News and Notes: Jenkins In Crestview Hall of Fame


By PATRICK CASEY
and REID TUCKER
Former Walton ath-
lete and current vol-
leyball assistant coach
Terri Davis Jenkins
was inducted into the
Crestview High School
Hall of Fame on Sept.
14 during halftime of
the Bulldogs' football
game with Jacksonville
Bolles. Jenkins -served
as head girls basketball
coach at Crestview from
1987-93 and her teams
compiled a record of
104-48, winning three
district titles, two Re-
gional championships,
a Sectional title and a
state runner-up spot
in Class 3A in 1991.
Jenkins, who has been
employed in the Wal-
ton County school sys-
tem since 1998, helped
the Lady Braves to the
Final Four in 1980 and
1982 as a player with
the Braves falling in
the Class 2A title game
to Clearwater Central
Catholic 73-44 in 1982.
Jenkins spent two years
as a student athlete at
Chipola Junior College
(where she was named
to the All-Florida Aca-
demic Team) before
transferring to Florida
State University where
she served as a student
assistant in the Semi-
noles basketball pro-
gram. Jenkins spent
six years as head bas-
ketball coach at Walton
from 2000-06.
Paxton High School's
second-annual Cats
Against Cancer basket-
ball fundraising classic
raised thousands of dol-
lars to help in the fight
against the disease. The
three day event, held
just before -Christmas
from Dec. 20 to Dec. 22,
brought in an estimated
gross profit of $5,807
between donations, ad-
missions, concessions
and merchandise sales.
The school will donate
more than half of the
money raised to several
charities, among them
St. Jude Children's Re-
search Hospital, the


Walton County branch
of the American Cancer
Society and the oncol-
ogy department of Pen-
sacola's Baptist Hospi-
tal, which once again
co-sponsored the event.
"We appreciate Baptist
Cancer Institute Direc-
tor Donna Johnston
and Baptist Hospital's
oncology department.
and all of our sponsors
for making this an out-
standing event for the
second year," said Pax-
ton girls' basketball
head coach Steve Wil-
liams. "I always look
forward to Cats Against
Cancer. Hopefully we
can to do something like
this for years to come
and continue to give
back to our community
and to the area." Cats
Against Cancer is the
brainchild of Williams,
who lost his' mother to
ovarian cancer in 2006
and whose wife was di-
agnosed in 2011. His
goal was to use on-court
action as a means to
bring in more money for
the fundraising effort.
Boys' and girls' squads
from seven schools
from Mobile to Gaines-
ville participated in the
event, with local teams
including, those from
Walton, Freeport, Lau-
rel Hill and, of course,
the Bobcats and Lady
Cats.

The No. 19-ranked
Florida State women's
basketball team cut a
16-point halftime defi-
cit to just three points,
but ultimately fell to
No. 8-ranked Mary-
land, 71-64, on Sunday
afternoon at the Com-
cast Center. The Semi-
noles return home to
host Wake Forest at 6
p.m. on Thursday and
Miami on Sunday at 2
p.m.
University of Florida
redshirt junior tight
end Jordan Reed an-
nounced on Friday that
he will. enter the 2013
NFL Draft and forgo
his final year of eligi-
bility with the Gator


football program. Reed
joins junior defensive
back Matt Elam and ju-
nior defensive lineman
Sharrif Floyd in stating
their intentions to begin
a professional career.
Florida State and
Oklahoma State will
play in the 2014 Cow-
boys Classic at Cow-
boys Stadium in Ar-
lington, Texas on Aug.
30, 2014. The game will

boys and ESPN also an-
nounced an extension
of the opening weekend
tradition with the new

tion's most valuable col-
lege football program,

year history, earning a
rating of 3.3 on ESPN.

Altha Drops PDL 42-22


By PATRICK CASEY
The Ponce de Leon
Pirates could not stop
Altha guard Kent Rog-
ers as he scored 30 of
his team's 42 points as
they grabbed a 42-22
road victory.
PDL trailed 12-6 af-
ter one quarter of play
but cut the lead to 14-
11 early in the second
quarter before the Wild-
cats pulled away for a
24-14 halftime lead.
Rogers, who scored
14 points in the first
half and 16 in the sec-
ond, hit 10 of his team's
15 shots from the field
as he was able to con-


nect from several dif-
ferent spots from inside
the arc.
Kole Hicks led the Pi-
rates with seven points
as the host squad strug-
gled to connect from the
field, hitting only 6-of-
41 shots in the game.
The Pirates stayed close
in the first half by mak-
ing 6-of-8 free throws as
Altha committed fouls
that sent PDL to the
line.
The Pirates lost an
87-44 decision to Wewa-
hitchka on Friday night
to fall to 2-12 on the
year arid 0-7 in District
1 of Class A.

Oklahoma (12-1) for the
2009 FedEx BCS Na-
tional Championship
Game in Miami Gar-
dens, Fla. Entering the
contest, the Sooners,
led by QB Sam Brad-
ford, averaged 54 points
per game while the Ga-
tors and QB Tim Tebow
(who would win the
NFF William V. Camp-
bell Trophy the follow-
ing season) notched an
average 45 points per
game. Florida scored
first on a 20-yard Tebow


TD toss to Louis Mur-
phy. Bradford answered
with a 6-yard pass to
Jermaine Gresham, ty-
ing the score at 7-7. The
Sooners nearly took the
lead late in the first half
only to have a batted
pass intercepted in the
end zone. The teams
traded touchdowns in
the second half before
the Gators broke away
with a field goal and an-
other Tebow touchdown
in their 24-14 national
title victory.

Jan. 9, 2012: In a
rematch of a regular
season meeting, No. 2
Alabama reversed its
fortunes by defeating
top-ranked Louisiana
State 21-0 in the 2012
Allstate BCS National
Championship Game
in New Orleans, La.
Ranked one and two in
the standings, the SEC
rivals also finished as
the nation's top, two
defensive teams. The
Crimson Tide defense
lived up to their statis-
tics by posting the first
shutout out in a BCS
bowl game and limiting
LSU to five first downs.
The Tiger defense was
nearly as effective as
they forced Alabama to
settle for five field goals
by Jeremy Shelly. In
the fourth quarter, the
Tide finally added a
touchdown on a 34-yard
run by Trent Richard-
son. Barrett Jones, who
would claim the NFF
William V. Campbell
Trophy the following
season, made his sec-
ond of three appearanc-
es in the title game. The
game also marked the
first BCS title game be-
tween two schools from
the same conference.


Jan. 11, 1969: Hall
of Fame fullback Bill
Enyart (Oregon State)
opened the scoring in
the Senior Bowl as the
North grabbed a 14-0
lead in Mobile, Ala.
Hall of Fame WR Jerry
Levias (SMU) caught a
touchdown pass, bring-
ing the South to within
four points at 14-10.
The deciding score came
when Hall of Fame LB
Ron Pritchard (Ari-
zona State) recovered
a South fumble at the
two-yard line, leading
to a quick North score
in the 27-16 win. Other
College Football Hall
of Fames appearing in
the game included Joe
Greene (North Texas),
Ted Hendricks (Mi-
ami, Fla.), Ted Kwalick
(Penn State), Bill Stan-
fill (Georgia), and Roger
Wehrli (Missouri).

'Jan. 12, 1906: Two
separate college foot-
ball rules committees
merged in a meeting at
the Hotel Netherland in
New York. From these
meetings, college foot-
ball began mass reforms
of the sport. The new
organization, known as
the Intercollegiate Ath-
letic Association of the
United States, adopted
new rules to curb the
brutality of the sport,
including the legaliza-
tion of the forward pass
and the establishment
of the neutral zone. In
1910, the organization
changed its name to
the National Collegiate
Athletic Association.

Jan. 13, 1979: The
South nearly doubled
the score on the North
in a 41-21 victory in the
Senior Bowl. Arkan-


sas DB Vaughn Lusby
broke a 7-7 tie with
an 82-yard kickoff re-
turn and Hall of Fame
RB Charles Alexander
(LSU) added a two-yard
touchdown run for the
South. Both Lusby and


Alexander would be se-
lected by the Cincinnati
Bengals .in the NFL
draft. College Football
Hall of Fame TE Kellen
Winslow Sr., (Missouri)
also appeared in the
game in Mobile, Ala.

Options for renova-

moving the facility, or
at least the visitor cen-
ter portion, to another
location.
The workshop, held
at the Walton County
District 5 office, was the
first of a series of four
scheduled by the TDC
to discuss correction of
building deficiencies
and receive public com-
ments on improvement
options. Attendees in-
cluded six citizens,
along with TDC Ex-
ecutive Director Dawn
Moliterno, TDC and
county staff members,
county engineering con-
sultant Cliff Knauer,
and a member of the
press. Ray Zukowski
of Neighborvision.com
videotaped the meeting
for the Web site.
Pat Ballasch of DAG
Architects led the meet-
ing. DAG Architects and


Lord & Son contractors
had been awarded the
bid for. a $228,160 de-
sign/build project to ad-
dress health and safety
deficiencies identified
with the TDC building.
Ballasch outlined the
deficiencies to be ad-
dressed, including ADA
compliance with bath-
room entry doors and
other doors, mold and
mildew issues, heating/,
ventilation/air condi-
tioning (HVAC) system
issues due to areas not
designed for offices be-
ing used as such, mois-
ture coming into the
building from the hold-
ing pond underneath
the building, and safety
issues in connection
with employees exiting
their work space in the
building attic through
other areas of the build-
ing.


He explained that the
TDC building is a one-
story wood-frame struc-
ture with an attic origi-
nally designed and used
for storage. However,
with expansion of staff,
in recent years the attic
had been used for em-
ployee work space. This
was discontinued due to
health and safety con-
cerns, and employees
had been moved from
the attic into the build-
ing's meeting room.
This has prevented the
meeting room from be-
ing used for its intended
purpose.
Part of the goal of the
plans presented by Bal-
lasch was to make the
attic "proper for work-
ers," as he termed it,
in order to free up the
meeting room for meet-

Health study of oil spill

cleanup workers is ongoing


By DOTTY NIST
A study is underway
to determine how expo-
sure to oil and disper-
sant in connection with
oil spills may impact
human health.
The effort, known
as the Gulf Study, is
the largest ever of its
kind. It is being con-
ducted by the National
Institute of Environ-
mental Health Sciences
(NIEHS), which is part
of the National Insti-
tutes of Health (NIH).
More than 32,000 work-
ers and volunteers from
the BP Deepwater Hori-
zon oil. spill cleanup ef-
fort have been enrolled
to participate in the
study, which began in
March 2011. Many of
the workers and volun-
teers were contacted by
mail and asked to par-
ticipate, while others
learned about the study
in other ways, among
those media releases by
the NIEHS.
According to Dale


Sandler, chief of the
NIEHS Epidemiology
Branch and lead inves-
tigator for the Gulf
Study, researchers are
focusing on cleanup
workers and volunteers
due to the fact that
these were the people
who were closest to the
disaster---and those for
whom the potential for
exposure to oil and dis-
persant was the highest,
even in spite of training
and safety procedures.
"The cleanup re-
sponse irivolved a wide
range of tasks carried
out by a large number of
people who each experi-
enced exposures to oil
and dispersant under
unique circumstances,"
Sandler commented.
"We want to under-
stand the experiences
of all types of workers,"
she emphasized.
Sandler said of the
cleanup workers and
volunteers, "Many of
them have questions."
Many have reported


MORE THAN 32,000 cleanup workers and volunteers from the April 2010
Deepwater Horizon oil spill have signed up to participate in the biggest-ever
investigation of short and long-term health impacts of exposure to oil and dis-
persant in connection with oil spills. It is anticipated that information stem-
ming from the study will help communities with health care planning and
help guide procedures for future oil spill response.


.health symptoms, she
noted, among those
being persistent skin
rashes, breathing dif-
ficulties, dizziness, and
unexplained weight
loss. Others report that
they "just don't feel

port of supplies in the Vessels of Opportunity program, part of the cleanup

the oil spill. (Oilspillcommission.gov photo)


right" or that they feel
"scared," she added.
The NIEHS had pre-
viously set a Dec. 31
date for closing off en-
rollment of participants.
However, according to
Sandler, that deadline
has been extended in
order to get more par-
ticipation. Sandler ex-
plained that the goal is
to enroll approximately
3,000 more workers and
volunteers. She said
new participants would
continue to be accepted
through March 31.
Sandler said the
NIEHS is currently
making a special effort
to include Asian and
Hispanic workers and
volunteers who are not
English speakers, who
might have been missed
in the study's initial
outreach efforts.
Requirements for
participation include
being 21 years old or
older and having done
oil spill cleanup work
for one day or more, or,


alternatively, having
supported the cleanup
effort in some way or
having completed some
training to do so.
Study participants
are interviewed by tele-
phone and are asked
questions about their
work with the oil spill
cleanup, their health,
lifestyle, and job histo-
ry. They are also asked
to provide- the study
with updated contact
information every year.
About 20,000 study
participants are being
invited to continue with
the second phase of the
study, which involves a
home visit and follow-
up telephone interviews
over future years. Part
of the home visit is col-
lection of* blood and
urine samples, toenail
clippings, and house
dust, along with mea-
surement of blood pres-
sure, height and weight,

CAROL BAUMANN provides free Mah Jongg lessons to Walton County
Snowbirds.


W0lton Coiuty Snowb1rd


Our Paleolithic ancestors knew exactly how to survive snowy winters: Store
plenty of bear fat, gather an ample supply of firewood and then while away
the winter regaling fellow cave dwellers with tales of the hunt. It is too bad
they didn't know about the Emerald Coast. Instead of listening to stories that
palled by New Year's Day, they could have become snowbirds like their de-
scendants who after a round of golf prefer to dine on succulent treats caught
fresh daily in the Gulf of Mexico and devote their evenings to a rousing game
of Euchre, Mah Jongg, or Bridge. Some 950 of those descendants have to date
gathered at Faith Assembly Fellowship Hall located at 306 South Geronimo
Street in Miramar Beach to join the Walton County Snowbirds. New arrivals
may enroll any Monday between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. or at a general meeting
the next of which is scheduled to occur Feb. 13 at the Destin United Method-
ist Church located at 200 Beach Drive in Destin starting at 10:00 a.m. New
arrivals take note: Snowshoes not allowed in the registration hall. The Sin-
gles group will lunch after the general meeting. It is Lillie Radmer at (850)
654-6706 for the location
How in the heck do you spell Mahjongg? For some it is Maj Jongg, oth-
ers prefer Mah Jongg, and still others leave out the space between Mah and
Jongg. Rules vary, too, all over the map. Just the same, the game has adher-
ents- by the ton. Around these parts, we spell it Mah Jongg. Members of the
Walton County Snowbirds, gather weekly at the Seascape Conference Center
on Thursday beginning at 1 p.m. to test their skill in a game that has some of
the characteristics of the Western card game rummy. Some claim Mah Jongg
traces back 2,500 years. It involves a combination of chance, skill, sneakiness
(players call it 'strategy') and calculation. Snowbirds interested in learning
more may do so by contacting Carol Baumann at cgcmbaum@gmail.com.
Soon after the Mah Jongg tiles get cleared away, the Euchre players stroll
in searching out a table to set up for a fast paced game where strategies are
formed and executed in seconds. The game has won great popularity among
Midwesterners, especially those from Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illi-
nois, Indiana, Ohio, and even parts of Ontario. Folks from those regions view
with sympathy anyone who lacks an understanding of the finer points of the
game that traveled to America from Germany in the 1800s. Paired partners
face each other from across the table so that the play of the cards in conven-
tional clockwise order alternates between the two partnerships in the four-
player trump game. Bob and Eunice Collins host the game played weekly at
the Seascape Conference Center, 6:30 p.m. Thursday. For more details call
(850) 650-1546.
If life is not complicated enough for you, take up Bridge. Like Euchre it is
a partnership game requiring four players. As in Euchre, each player sits op-
posite his partner. Unlike Euchre, a game that isn't played with a full deck,
Bridge is played with a standard deck of 52 playing cards and has two compo-
nents, bidding and playing. To learn more, contact Pierce & Betty Martin at
837-0996 or bjmartin321@gmail.com for Wednesday afternoon play beginning
at 1 p.m. at the Hampton Infi. For evening play beginning at 6 p.m. on Jan.
15 also at the Hampton Inn, it's Pat & Ruth Townes 650-6705 or townspr4@
hotmail.com.
Great news for golfers! The Walton County Snowbird club has arranged
dozens of play days at top courses including Seascape, Regatta Bay, Emer-
ald Bay, the Meadows, Bluewater Bay and Eglin, among others. Also, the
Tuesday and Thursday golf leagues are in full swing. Sign up at registration
or email beth.sargent@cox.net for Tuesday information or snowbirdgolfbar-
bara@gmail.com for Thursday golf details or consider the Shalimar Pointe
Golf league now forming for play on Monday afternoons. Contact Bonnie Sch-
wichtenberg at (850) 424-6502.
Members of the Walton County Snowbirds may drop off or pick up items
from Affordable Storage located at 114 Sugar Drive (one mile east of 30A
on Highway 98...south side) between 3 and 4 p.m. on the following dates:
Wednesday Jan. 16, February, Mondays, Feb. 4 and 18.

Demers and Howard withdraw

county administrator applications


By DOTTY NIST

The field of candi-
dates for Walton County
administrator has nar-
rowed to six following
the withdrawal of two
applicants, Gerry Dem-
ers and Steve Howard.
Demers is assistant
administrator for Wal-
ton County and current
interim administrator.
Howard is county ad-
ministrator for Camden
County, Ga.
At a Dec. 18 special
meeting of the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC),
commissioners ranked
the 48 applications that
had been submitted for
the vacant county ad-
ministrator position,
.with rankings also be-
ing provided on behalf of
Walton County District
1 Commissioner Bill
Chapman, who was not
present for the meeting.
That process resulted
in eight finalist candi-
dates being selected to
be interviewed one-on-


one by individual com-
missioners.
The four commis-
sioners present at that
meeting' were advised
by the Human Reources
Manager Nan MacGin-
nis to include Demers
as one of their final se-
lections due to veteran
preference require-
ments. She stated that,
according to Human Re-
sources Director Brady
Bearden, Demers was
the only veteran who
had applied for the po-
sition.
Contacted on Jan. 7,
Demers said that, after
talking with his family,
he had concluded that
it would be best for him
not to pursue the county
administrator position.
Demers had been
selected as assistant
county administrator
in Nov. 2010, soon af-
ter the position -was re-
vamped to emphasize
the promotion of effi-
ciency and cost savings
in county government
operations. Supervisory


duties are also part of
the job. Prior to becom-
ing assistant county
administrator, Demers
had served the county,
beginning in 2005, as
deputy building official
and later as planning
director. He has served
as interim county ad-
ministrator since the
departure of Greg Kise-
la, who had been hired
as county administrator
in June 2011 and held
the position until June
2012.
Demers commented
that he was looking for-
ward to being able to
focus more fully on pro-
motion of efficiency and
the other duties of the
assistant administra-
tor position once a new
county administrator
was in place.
According to Walton
County Public Infor-
mation Manager Louis
Svehla, Steve Howard
contacted the county
by phone to request the
withdrawal of his appli-
cation.


"We received in a
phone call that it was
not in his best interest
at this time and that
there were issues con-
cerning a job opportuni-
ty for his wife," Svehla
said.
Final applicants re-
maining under consid-
eration for the county
administrator position
include: Larry Jones,
former Walton County
District 3 commissioner;
current Walton County
Deputy Tax Collector
Cory Godwin; George
Barwick of Crawford-
ville; Lyndon Bonner of
Ocala; Robert Halfhill of
Port Charlotte; and Ted
Lakey of Graceville.

As of Jan. 7, Sve-
hla said interviews had
not yet been scheduled
between county com-
missioners and the ad-
ministrator finalists. It
is anticipated that the
commissioners will de-
cide on a new adminis-
trator at their Jan. 22
regular meeting.


Investigation of "open door" leads

to apprehension of DJJ escapee


Last week, depu-
ties with the Walton
County Sheriffs Of-
fice (WCSO) were dis-
patched to 12 Driftwood
Road in Miramar Beach
in reference to an open
door. A neighbor in the
area noticed the resi-
dence did not appear
to be secure and no one
should have been pres-


ent in the vacant unit.
Upon arrival, deputies
noticed the door jamb to
the residence appeared
to be damaged and was
held partially closed
only by the security
chain and a chair. After
law enforcement made
their presence known, a
young male appeared at
the front door. Deputies

phasized that all infor-
mation obtained is con-
fidential and that all
privacy guidelines are
followed.
Any participant's
health care needs
that become apparent
through the study re-
sult in the person being
referred for care.
Participants receive
a $50 gift card in return
for the home visit. Peri-
odic drawings are also
held for $500 gift cards.
Many women par-
ticipated in the cleanup
effort, and almost 20
percent of study partici-
pants are women, ac-
cording to Sandler.
Sandler said that
approximately 7.000,
cleanup workers and
volunteers from Flor-
ida are participating,
most of those from the
Panhandle, and that
approximately 2,000 of
those have completed
home visits.
The study is expected
to continue over a 10-
year period or longer.
According to Sandler,
it will cost close to $30
million just for the first
five years. The study is
funded for the most part
through the NIH's reg-,
ular research budget,
she said, although some
funds were initially re-
ceived from BP to help
"jump start" the study.


Other than that dona-
tion, there has been ab-
solutely no involvement
in the study by BP, San-
dler explained.
Over time, the study
is expected to provide
information that will
guide decisions on plan-
ning for health care and
health service needs for
communities in the re-
gion. The information
may also influence pro-
cedures for future oil
spill responses.
Study results are to
be provided on the Gulf
Study Web site, www.
nihgulfstudy.org, in me-
dia releases and heath
publications, and in
community meetings.
Sandler urged any
cleanup worker or vol-
unteer interested in
participating to call and
enroll in the study. "We
want as many people
as possible to partici-
pate. It would be great
to hear from them," she
said. She also put out a
request for people who
had previously signed
up and who had since
moved to another loca-
tion to contact the study
with their current con-
tact information.
Clean-up workers
or volunteers may call
the NIH toll-free at
1-855-NIH-GULF (1-
855-644-4853) for infor-
mation on the study or
to enroll.

clothing items scat-
tered about on the floor
of the apartment. The
youth stated that his
mother lived at the res-
idence and she was at
work. He gave a name
and date of birth to the
deputies but refused to
give his mother's name
or her employer. The
youth's story continued
to change while on scene
and neighbors con-
firmed no one should be
living in the apartment.
Deputies located and
seized a firearm in the
residence as evidence.

The subject was ar-
rested and taken to the
Walton County Depart-


ment of Corrections for
booking. Upon arrival
at the jail, it was dis-
covered the subject had
escaped from a local
Department of Juvenile
Justice commitment
program and was listed
as absconded since Dec.
1, 2012. The subject was
then transported to the
juvenile detention facil-
ity in Crestview.

The 16-year-old was
charged with criminal
mischief over $200 but
under $1,000, Trespass
into a structure or con-
veyance, and obstruc-

ings.
Ballasch told attend-
ees that the design/
build project would in-
clude relocation of some
bathrooms and making
some of them larger, the
addition of insulation
in walls, an upgrade of
the HVAC system with
addition of units, and
correction of mold and
mildew issues. He said
plans were for a spray
foam product to be ap-
plied to the underside
of the building to create
a barrier to protect the
structure from mois-
ture and vapors plus
insulate the floor. The
entry doors leading to
the .visitor center, he
commented, would be
moved out in order to
correct conflicting door
issues.
In addition, Ball-
asch said, a new stair-
way would be built in
the south wing of the
building, providing for
exit by employees from
their work areas with-
out them having to go
through part of the
building.
Both the DAG/Lord
& Son team and the
other party responding
to the TDC's request
for proposals had iden-
tified other issues with
the building that were
recommended for cor-
rection in addition to
the items covered in the
bid. County commis-
sioners had authorized
the TDC to negotiate
with the architects and
contractors for the ad-
dition of items to the
project---and had ap-
proved the setting aside
of $1.5 million in funds
from TDC, reserves to
be available for use on
negotiated options.
Ballasch presented
the options to gather
public input on them,
also asking for sugges-
tions on other needs
that could be addressed
in conjunction with the
renovation/improve-
ment project.
He recommended
measures to address a
water leak problem as-
sociated with a flat roof
on the center tower,
which had resulted in
damage to electrical
components. The rem-
edy, Ballasch proposed,
would be to replace the
flat roof in that area
with a pitched roof in
order to keep out wa-
ter.

Another option was
the creation of addi-
tional parking, since
there is sometimes -in-
sufficient space for visi-
tors' vehicles. Ballasch
explained that the TDC
building is located on
a site that is approxi-


mately two acres in
size, with just one acre
currently developed.
The other portion of the
site is mostly wetlands,
he noted, however part
of it is cleared and had
been used for a septic
field before the building
was connected to sewer.
He suggested seeking a
state permit to use the
cleared portion for ad-
ditional parking. Ball-
asch also suggested re-
moving landscaping to
allow for more parking,
along with building a
retaining wall and dou-
ble stacking parking.
Among other options
discussed by Ballasch
was the addition of a
new tower on the north
end of the facility with
an elevator and stair-
well.
The options had not
been priced. Moliterno
emphasized that the
TDC was receiving in-
formation on them at
the same time as the
public.
Jan Rieveschl. was
in favor of determining
the needs of the orga-
nization with regard to
growth---but objected
that prices should have
been provided prior to
community members
being asked for their
recommended options.
Moliterno responded
that, at previous TDC
workshops, citizens had
asked to be involved in
the planning process on
projects "from the be-
ginning," before prices
and concepts were pro-
posed.
Bill Fletcher com-
mented that he had
been one of a few people
who had been in favor
of the TDC abandon-
ing the current site due
to lack of accessibility.
The curb cut that had
provided access to the
building for vehicles
-travelling south on U.S.
331 had been eliminat-
ed when the portion of
the highway adjacent to
the building had been
four-laned. Fletcher
asked if the idea of re-
locating the facility was
now "dead."
Moliterno responded
that that would be up to
the county commission-
ers, adding, "no matter
what, we have to rem-
edy the building."
Observing that the
current location does
not seem like a very
good location for a visi-
tor's center, Bob Brooke
asked if thought had
been given to moving
just the visitor's center.
Ballasch commented
that at one time there
had been discussion of
moving the visitor's cen-
ter to property on the
other side of U.S. 331


THE JAN. 7 workshop was one of four hosted by the TDC regarding renovations and improvements to
the TDC building. (Photo by Dotty Nist)


near the South Walton
Annex.
Moliterno explained
that the site for the fa-
cility is leased from the
state and that, accord-
ing to the lease, it must
continue to be used to
provide visitor informa-
tion or else be returned
to the state.
Fletcher brought up
the idea of several visi-
tor's centers to serve
tourists arriving from
different directions.
Mike Flynt urged
for an examination of
what "the real needs
are" for the facility. He
was in agreement with
Fletcher that perhaps
a new building was
needed. Flynt called
for market research on
"what would be most ef-
fective," whether it be
another building, a sat-
ellite visitor's center, or
another option.
Moliterno pledged to
include that input in
her report to tourism


council members and
county commissioners-
--but said that she had
not been authorized to
initiate the study rec-
ommended by Flynt.
She told attendees
that the TDC had re-
searched the best prac-
tices for their industry
and had maintained
a kiosk satellite visi-
tor's center for a time
at Grand Boulevard.
It was found that this
was not an efficient use
of funds, since people
approaching the kiosk
were seeking informa-
tion about Grand Boule-
vard rather than about
the destination, Mo-
literno noted. She said
that interactive kiosks
at beach accesses had
also been considered
but had been deter-
mined not to be feasible
because of weathering
damage that tended to
occur to kiosk equip-
ment on the beach.
Leorard Anderson


asked if the state had
been approached about
adding a turn lane on
U.S. 331 for access to
the building. Moliterno
responded that this had
been discussed with
the state Department
of Transportation at
length, but that they
would not agree to do
so.
Bob Brooke com-
mented that it seemed
that there should be
an option for moving
the visitor's center and
continuing to use the
current building for 9f-
fices. Flynt suggested
approaching the state
with the argument that
the location was no lon-
ger a serviceable one
for a visitor's center but
that the facility was still
needed by the TDC..He
suggested requesting a
change in the lease to
provide for the visitor's
center, to be removed
from the current facil-
ity and relocated.


There was discussion
on how relocating the
visitor's center would
impact traffic to the
center and debate on
whether most tourists
arrived via U.S. 331
or U.S. 98. Moliterno
agreed to include the
latter question in visi-
tor surveys conducted
by the TDC.
Anderson went on re-
cord in favor'of improv-
ing the building for em-
ployees and the public,
as long as the options
did not prove to be exor-
bitant in price.

Ballasch summa-
rized "take away" from
attendees' input as a
desire to have the build-
ing options "priced out,"
along with the desire
to seek flexibility from
the state to allow the
visitor's center to be
moved, whether to the
east, west, to the other
side of U.S. 331, or to
multiple locations.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013


t,,.~ ~ ( ''i'i~i


As a nation, we cherish the history and tradi-
tions that this country has provided for us, during
her good and bad years, and we honor this country
by being patriotic and showing our red, white and
blue colors. So if that is the case, shouldn't our na-
tional anthem have the same respect when being
sung?


I know I have many
rants and raves that at-
tack elected officials, is-
sues that annoy me and
even people that shouldn't
be able to walk the streets
by themselves. I always
try to make it light-heart-
ed and have a positive end-
ing,'no matter how tragic
or sad the story might be.
But there. are a few
things that just scrap my
nerves and really make
the hair on my neck stand
up. It's not a television
network, a politician, an
event, or even those horri-
ble reality shows, but the
destroying of our national
anthem.
I don't mean that the
original words and music
were dragged out into a
field and shredded by the
masses. I am referring to
those few and select "ce-
lebrities" that have de-
cided to rewrite and rec-
reate those beautiful and
monumental words that
were so eloquently put to-


gether by our forefathers.
There is a clear difference
between adding some per-
sonal touches to a song,
but changing the meaning
and even the sound of the
song? No one deserves to
have their work destroyed
in that fashion.
I am sure you know
what I mean, with all the
bowl games and the NFL
games that have been on
the boob tube over the
past few weeks. At every
game, every time the "Star
Spangled Banner" is sung,
the performer turns the
three-minute solo into a
10 minute concert.-
Latin recording artist
Xenia had been in Miami
Gardens, Fla. readying
herself to perform the na-
tional anthem at the 2013
Discover Orange Bowel.
But according to her fa-
ther, Francisco Martinez,
ESPN officials canceled
her performance at the
last minute.
"It's a very sad situa-


tion and out of our con-
trol," Martinez said in the
e-mail.
At 5:40 p.m., when
ESPN cut to the opening
of the Orange Bowl broad-
cast, country artist Ayla
Brown, daughter of Mas-'
sachusetts Senator Scott
Brown, performed the na-
tional anthem in place of
Xenia.
Many said that the
original performer had
been having trouble read-
ing and learning the an-
them, and Orange Bowl
organizers did not want
to take the chance of her
flubbingg" the opening of
the game, so Brown was
brought in to take her
place. But even so, many
complained about her
singing, making the na-
tional anthem, written for
a trained voice, sound like
something you would hear
if attending the follies at
Dollywood.
What began the tran-
sition from singing the
national anthem in its
original version was the
Superbowl performance
in 1992, by the late Whit-
ney Houston. Her rendi-
tion not only changed the
voice of performance, but
seemed to bring the coun-
try together in a time that
the country was welcom-
ing home their troops from
the Gulf War.
Once again, Houston
did stray from the origi-
nal version, but due to her
powerful voice, incredible
stage presence and her
ability to belt out notes
that no other could reach,
her closing measure of
the song was burned in


the hearts and minds of
millions and millions of
people. It is still today one
of the most downloaded
songs off YouTube.
Many will argue and
complain that I am being
too harsh, and that every
voice has the right to be
heard. Well first of all, I
do think that every voice
should be heard, but I do
not think that every sing-
ing voice needs to be put
on national television, es-
pecially when the singer
was even kicked out of
their high school choir.
Of course there is the
halftime show. For the
most part, and without any
wardrobe malfunctions, it
goes off without a hitch.
It usually stars a singing
icon, like Madonna, Be-
yonce, Bruce Springsteen,
Garth Brooks and Tim
McGraw, just to name a
few.

But even they stay
clear of the stage prior to
the singing of the national
anthem. The bad vocals,
bad moves and outland-
ish costumes can then be
worn and let the audience
gaze at the spectacle. For
some it will be just what
they need to take their
minds off the voice of the
singer that is standing in
front of them,
There are shows that
have helped many of the
singers get on the stage
and attempt to sing the
national anthem. Reality
shows like Star Search,
America's Got Talent, The
Voice, and American Idol,
do transmit a positive im-
age for many Americans


and fulfill many hopes and
dreams of singers.
But once again, a good
piece of advice in the mu-
sic industry, stay clear of
singing the national an-
them, There are so many
other songs, with much
less value and history
than "The Star Spangled
Banner," that can be vo-
cally destroyed.
Even on the local level,
it is something that is seen
over and over again. At
baseball, basketball and
football games, and re-
ally any other event where
people gather, a pretty
young girl approaches the
microphone and begins to
sing the anthem two keys
too high, and forgets the
words, halfway through
the first measure. Now for
mom and dad, she is still
cute, and just had a case of
the nerves, but for others,
like veterans sitting in the
crowd, it might be a slap
in the face.
There have been other
massacres of the song by
celebrities that were doing
it just for the attention,
such as Roseanne Barr in
the 1980s. She opened up
a Dodgers baseball game,.


and brought everyone to
tears. Not in the emotion-
al way, but from pure fear
that the song would not
end.
The singing of the na-
tional anthem brings tears
to the eyes of those who
call themselves patriotic.
Those who feel this way are
the same ones that stand
up and put their hand over
their heart when the flag
enters the room.
No matter how you
celebrate your patrio-
tism, whether you sing a
patriotic song, wave the
American flag, or just read
any of the historic docu-
ments that our country
was founded upon, do it
with your own style, re-
spect and gratitude. Many
countries are unable to
celebrate their patriotism,
and would long for the op-
portunity to do so.
So no matter if you
dance the national an-
them, play a tuba to the
national anthem, or sing
it for the opening of a ball-
game, do it with respect,
honor and the remember-
ance of others who fought
so hard to give you the
right to be who you are!

Lori Drew is Coastal Branch


Library's January artist of


the month


- . n ., .. .... . . ... .

A LEAP OF FAITH encouraged Lori Drew to create an exhibit of nature-
inspired paintings that will be on display at Coastal Branch Library in Janu-
ary.


PAINTING BY LORI DREW, one of several to be displayed in January at
Coastal Branch Library.


Artist Lori Drew's
peaceful paintings in-
spired by nature will
be on display at the
Coastal Branch Library
for the month of Janu-
ary, celebrating a new
life and this new artist's
"endless summer."
Drew said her jour-
ney began just eight
months ago, when she
left her career with
Santa Rosa Golf &
Beach Club and accept-
ed a position at the ea-
sel, practicing painting
in pajamas most days
from early morning un-
til late afternoon in the
"little house" she now
calls Clay Road Stu-
dio. "I completely lost
track of time," she ex-
plained. "The process
was a lesson in patience
and determination, and
I was rewarded with an
indescribable sense of
peace."
The real lesson came
when she opened the
studio door and stepped
out into the Santa Rosa
Beach art community,
first with the Women's
Art Network and then
Cultural Arts Alliance.
"From the very begin-
ning, I was greeted by
talented and estab-


lished artists who not
only squelched my fears
but genuinely encour-
aged me to 'jump' into
juried art shows. If it
were not for these wom-
en who quickly became
friends, I would surely
never have discovered
my potential," she said.
Her work was most
recently featured in
CAA's A+ Top of the
Class exhibit and Hid-
den Lantern's Back to
Nature show, where
Drew's "Trees of Cape
San Blas" was awarded
an honorable mention.
Her hybrid style com-
bines a touch of the ab-
stract with a splash of
impressionism. Drew
describes the result
as "soft, thoughtful
glimpses into the heart
of nature." And wheth-
er'she is capturing the
beauty of South Walton
or places from the past,
Drew hopes viewers
will relate to the scene
and be touched by the
tranquility.
Her colorful past in-
cludes four years of ac-
tive duty in the U.S.
Navy, where she served
as a photojournalist, two
years as a graphic artist
for hospitals in central


Florida and four years
as a one-woman hospi-
tal public relations de-
partment in California.
Drew was then called
to full-time mom duty,
raising three sons, and
utilized her darkroom
and black and white
photography experience
to establish a success-
ful portrait business in
Indiana before moving
to Santa Rosa Beach in
2000. Here, she began
with visual merchan-
dising and progressed
to retail management
with the golf club.
Only through the
support of family and
friends was she con-
vinced it was time for
her own leap of faith,
and only through the
encouragement of WAN
and CAA members did
this artist find the con-
fidence to create the ex-
hibit now available for
viewing at the library
during regular business
hours. All are welcome
to experience her end-
less summer of painting
and peace.
