A request from a

for a one-time bill waiv-
er once again restarted
discussion among the
Town Council regard-
ing the city's bill for-
giveness policy.
Paxton's longstand-
ing policy allows for the
once-per-lifetime waiv-


er of an unusually high
water bill (usually due
to problems with the
water line or by a slow,
unnoticed leak) by scal-
ing back the amount

WCSB discusses

BP funds, security,

amended salaries and

transportation software


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB)
met for their regularly
scheduled session Jan.
15 at 5 p.m. Although
the agenda before them
was rather lengthy, the
board moved through
the items before them
swiftly, with some items
generating more discus-
sion than others.
WCSB Chairman
Mark Davis opened the
meeting. With no new
announcements from
Walton County School
District Superinten-
dent Carlene Anderson,
the board approved the
agenda before them
unanimously as well
as minutes from two
prior meetings. Davis
called for public com-
ments and with none
forthcoming, Anderson
recommended approval
for the consent agenda.
Board members Faye
Leddon, vice-chair and
Sharon Roberts asked
questions about new
school bus route and
maintenance software
cost. Transport Coor-
dinator Jim Hicks re-
sponded the software
would cover many more
aspects of transporta-
tion than just routes,
such as maintenance,
student planning and
growth just to name a
fev. "This will allow
[parents and grand-
parents] to take their
iPad out and punch in


the route by the road
[to make sure the kids
are getting on the right
bus]. The cost of the
software is estimated
to be around $33,000
not including yearly up-
dates or license renew-
als according to Hicks.
The board passed the
consent'agenda request
unanimously.
The board then
moved to the action
portion of the agenda.
Anderson opened the
discussion 'concerning
salary schedules by say-
ing, "We never expected
to have an elementary
school with over 650
students. We now have
one, Van R. Butler, with
over 800. We felt that
any principal with over
800 students should at
least receive a bump
in pay." Roberts asked
for clarification. "There
aren't any principals at
this time that will have
a pay decrease?" Ander-
son responded, "If it had
been punitive to anyone,
I would have asked they
be grandfathered in, so,
I'm answering no." The
board approved the rec-
ommendation unani-
mously.
The board moved to
approve personnel rec-
ommendations unani-
mously. Many of the
recommendations were
to move teachers from
a temporary status to

ly bill.
The problem, as sev-
eral members of the
Council described it at
their Jan. 15 meeting,
is that in years past
some customers often
requested waivers on
multiple occasions,
whether as a way to
work the system or be-
cause their income was


insufficient to pay for
high water bills when
accidents happen. In re-
sponse, the Council sev-
eral years ago passed
an ordinance limiting
water bill waivers to
one-time-only options.
However, Council-
men Tommy Mathis
and. Bobby Kemp said
that move didn't solve


the problem completely,
as the situation is such
that some fixed-income
customers would not
be able to-.pay. a high
water bill even if they
were willing to do so.
Alternatively, other
customers that, as the
board members said,

Alaqua Animal Refuge is


verified by Global Federation


of Animal Sanctuaries


The Global Federa-
tion of Animal Sanctu-
aries (GFAS), the only
globally recognized or-
ganization providing
standards for identify-
ing legitimate animal
sanctuaries, award-
ed Verified status to'
Alaqua Animal Refuge
as of Dec. 1, 2012.
Verification means
that Alaqua meets the
criteria of a true equine
sanctuary/rescue and is
providing humane and
responsible care of the
animals. To be awarded
Verified status, an or-
ganization must meet
GFAS's rigorous and
peer-reviewed animal
care standards which
are confirmed by a site
visit and they must also
adhere to a demanding
set of ethical and opera-
tional principles.
"Alaqua Animal Ref-
uge is an excellent role
model combining com-
passion for the well be-
ing of animals, robust


fundraising techniques
and non-profit manage-
ment best practices,"
said Jeannine Alexan-
der, GFAS Deputy Di-
rector-Equine. "This or-
ganization's extensive
education outreach and
community programs
set the bar high for all
animal welfare organi-
zations. President and
founder Laurie Hood, is
a dynamic and informed
leader that is very in-
volved in the day-to-
day operations of the
organization as well as
policy development and
advocacy in the commu-
nity."
"The refuge is
thrilled to be entering
into an exciting new era
by becoming a part of
the Global Federation
of Animal Sanctuaries
(GFAS)", said Laurie
Hood, founder and pres-
ident of Alaqua Animal
Refuge. She continued,
"GFAS has taken a
much needed step in en-


during that donors can
rest assured that their
money is going to an
organization that meets
the strict standards of
care they set in place.
It is our honor to be rec-
ognized as one of those
organizations, and we
will continue to strive
to provide the best care
possible to all animals
in need".
Alaqua Animal Ref-

have the money to pay
even repeatedly high
water bills and should
therefore not always be
allowed the same bill
forgiveness rights as
lower-income custom-
ers.
Therefore, Kemp
said he and the rest
of the Council were
definitely interested in
looking into a case-by-
case screening system
to help those who need
help the most. A motion
to have City Attorney
Lori Bytell look into the
matter and to provide
feedback as to possible
changes to the city or-
dinances relating to the
water system met with
unanimous approval
when put to the vote.
"This is something
that needs to be taken
care of, but not on ac-
count of the people
who can afford [to pay
their bills all the time],"
Kemp said. "I'm talking
about the people who
cannot afford it. People
drawing $600 or $800
a month cannot afford
such as that. I'm for the
people less fortunate
than we are."
The remainder of the
meeting was devoted
to handling old busi-.
ness, which primarily
involved an update by
Mayor Hayward Thom-
as on the progress of
renovations to the city's

said work was coming
right along, with the
exterior of the building
completely painted in
primer awaiting addi-
tional coats. The Coun-
cil unanimously agreed
to purchase 26-gauge
metal roofing with a gal-
vanized finish (in order
to maintain the barn's
historical appearance)
for the building from
Baker Metal Works &
Supply, Inc., the low-
bidder on the project.
There was also some
talk of eventually hav-
ing the stock barn sub-
mitted for inclusion on


the National Registry

completion of the build-
ing's renovation.
The agenda at the
meeting was also to
have included a presen-
tation on City Resolu-
tion 12-03, which deals
with updated employee
policies. However, By-
tell, who Was to present
the report to the Coun-
cil, was not in atten-
dance at the meeting
and so further discus-
sion on the resolution
was tabled until the
next regularly sched-
uled meeting on Tues-
day, Feb. 18.


OLD COOK STOVE, by Marvin L. Tweedy.


Editor:
To the people of Walton County. I want people to understand about the inter-
lock device they put in your vehicle. Now, if you get a D.UJ., besides bonding out
of jail, lawyer fees, court costs, community service, 10 days of vehicle impound-
ment, 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. if I was on the road driving, but like I said I have a conver-
sion 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.
I What the police do to people is wrong. It's all about the money. Ruin peoples
life. Money, money, money, that's all it is. People do have rights.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,2013


Extension agent leads Walton

County tax and savings coalition


With the unusual weather this
year, The Herald asked "people on
the street" what their favorite season
was and why.


Story by
JEFFREY POWELL

SThe new year has
arrived and employers
are distributing em-
ployees' W-2s and other
pertinent tax informa-
tion and although the
tax deadline does not
arrive until April many
individuals and fami-
lies expecting a refund
are looking to file early.
Many of these persons
are in a financial situ-
ation that makes it dif-
ficult to get professional
tax advice. One choice
they have is a service
being provided by the


Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance (VITA) pro-
gram. The service is a
volunteer driven effort
between the Walton
County Tax and Sav-
ings Coalition, IRS and
JobsPlus.
"This program will
save individuals and
families money," said
VITA volunteer coor-
dinator Ricki McWil-
hams. "Approximately
70 percent of Walton
County residents quali-
fy for these services. It
is in their best interest
to participate in this
program.
The VITA program


generally offers free tax
help to households that
make $51,000 or less
and need assistance in
preparing their own tax
returns. IRS-certified
volunteers provide free
basic income tax return
preparation and elec-
tronic filing to quali-
fied individuals in local
communities.
Individuals planning
to visit the JobsPlus
location need to bring
proof of identification,
social security cards for
themselves and spouse,
individual taxpayer
identification numbers,
wage and earning state-


ments, proof of bank ac-
count routing numbers,
and proof of other costs
associated with child
care or elderly parent
care.
A kickoff for the fil-

The Most



Dangerous



Branch?


By BRUCE COLLIER
Editor
In law school you get a lot of time to ponder
things. In fact, you have to ponder things, because
they give you so much to read that the only way to
keep your sanity is to ponder. One of the most oft-
pondered questions is, which branch of the govern-
ment is the most powerful, and therefore, the most
dangerous?
The media (both professional and amateur)
have been pondering the inaugural speech given
by President Obama. Commentary has lined up
pretty much along liberal/conservative lines (by
that I mean the media, not the politicians). It's
been called an "ode to big government," (not meant
as a compliment) and, a "call to action," a good all-
purpose term when you can't think of anything
else to say. Some wished it had been more of an ol-
ive branch, a reaching out across ideological lines.
Well, it's on the record now.
Getting back to the most dangerous branch,
which is it? The Executive is certainly the showi-
est, since it has one person at the top. The presi-
dent gets called cool names like Chief Executive,
First Magistrate, Leader of the Free World, Com-
mander in Chief, etc. He's the guy with the pro-
verbial finger on the button, meaning theoretical-
ly he can order what would likely be World War
Last whenever he wants to. He can pardon people,
too. Personally, I think the best thing about be-
ing president would be that you can invite pretty
much anyone you want to meet to come over to the
house for dinner, and they have to show up.
Then there's the Judicial Branch, the least
glamorous and possibly most misunderstood. They
can declare laws unconstitutional, delay death
sentences, review municipal ordinances for human
rights violations, and best of all, interrupt lawyers
who are arguing cases in front of them. That last
part has to be a lot of fun. On the other hand, they
can't talk freely about most subjects, they have to
watch where they park even more than the rest of
us, and must wade through piles of turgid appel-
late prose, then try to make sense of it.
That leaves the Legislative Branch. If you won-
der why they weren't as tough on the president's
speech as they could have been, there are two pos-
sible explanations. The first is that they have to
work with the guy for another four years, and he
did get re-elected, and those are the same voters
that elect and re-elect legislators.
The second is that they only have to work with
the guy for another four years and, though he
did get re-elected, it's but a brief window before
his party will start looking for an electable suc-
cessor. Every president, at most, gets eight years
and then has to leave. Legislators can serve for
decades. They can deny his judicial appointments,
override his vetoes, refuse to fund his projects. In
short, they can make any president's second term
a big fat waste of time. That might explain the be-
nign smiles and hearty handshakes. When that
many professional politicians look that pleased
with themselves, I see trouble. We won't have long
to wait for it.



Editor:
Florida's war on snakes can be directly attrib-
uted to lawmakers who capitulate to the exotic
animal industry by refusing to ban wild animals
being kept as pets. When you make it as simple as
pulling out a credit card to buy snakes, alligators,
iguanas and, other exotic species, the cruel cycle
begins.
Animals quickly go from "must have" to "must
get rid of." Some end up in already-overburdened
shelters; others are simply dumped, destined to
become targets in state-sponsored killing sprees -
appallingly called "contests."
As a licensed wildlife rehabber with 15 years ex-
perience in treating society's cast-offs, I can attest
that people will not change, so the laws must. Leg-
islators must slam the door shut on the exotic pet
industry once and for all.

LETTES TOTHE DITO


Editor,
On behalf of the Hatcher Cemetery Board of
Trustees, I am writing this letter to all area resi-
dents who have family members or friends buried
in Hatcher Cemetery.
Sadly, it has been brought to our attention that
some in our area have voiced complaints and/or
are dissatisfied with the way Hatcher Cemetery
is being run. For instance, when we were having
the cemetery cleared, some didn't like the gates be-
ing closed at night. When the grass gets high, you
want it mowed. I could go on, but I think you get
the picture. We don't need your criticism; what we
need is YOUR help!! (Your criticism hurts.)
Hatcher Cemetery is run by a volunteer Board
of Trustees, the youngest being is 65 years of age.
In order to have the cemetery that we think every-
one wants, we surely need to have some younger
people involved.
Our quarterly board meetings are on the first


Saturday in the months of February, May, August,
and November. We advertise these meetings in
the local newspaper and place signs around Free-
port. In the two years that I have been a trustee,
we have had maybe five new people attend the
meetings, but most of the time it is just trustees.
Where are you?
We would like to invite each of you to come to
our next meeting on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 10 a.m.
at the First Baptist Church of Freeport Fellowship
Hall, 430 Kylea Laird Drive. Please come share
your ideas, get involved, and make this your cem-
etery one you can be proud to have as the final
resting place for your family and friends. For any
further information, please call Olive Watson at
825-2674 or myself at 835-2570.

Nancy Brown
Hatcher Cemetery Trustee Chairman

Editor:
Barack Obama's second term has not even be-
gun and we already know that among the 23 "exec-
utive actions" the president has announced after
the Newtown, Conn. shootings that he has issued
a presidential memorandum directing the Centers
for Disease Control to "research the causes and
prevention of gun violence."
Obama may want to put a hold on that one, until
he talks with former president Jimmy Carter, and
be informed as to what happened the last time a
U.S. president tried it.
During the late '70s, President Jimmy Carter
and his cohorts were determined to push through
new federal gun-control legislation. They came up
with this idea to have a scientific study conducted
which, they thought in the end, would proclaim
that gun-control laws were effective in reducing
crime.
So-oo the Carter folks handed out a major gun-
control research grant to the University of Massa-
chusetts sociology professor James D. Wright and
his colleagues Peter Rossi and Kathleen Daly. They
spent four years and lots of tax dollars to produce
the most critical study of gun control ever under-
taken. In 1981, they published the results of their
research consisting of three-volumes of informa-
tion entitled "Under the Gun." There was only one
problem. Their findings, which were observed by
co-author Wright, were that "Gun control laws DO


NOT reduce crime."
What infuriates me is the hypocrisy of this pres-
ident. He allows his daughters to be protected by
approximately 12 armed security guards, not in-
cluding the Secret Service at their private school
in Washington D.C. Not only that, he is pushing
for presidents to be protected for life by Secret
Service. At the present they are only protected for
10 years after leaving office.
"Are the president's kids more important than
ours? (We the People). Evidently he thinks so.
SForall those who thought Obamacare is so woh-
derful, the secrets are slowly being revealed at just
how he is intending to force this upon us. Obama
announced last week by executive order, that his
healthcare program known as ObamaCare will
play a key role in controlling guns.
President Obama says his ObamaCare law gives
doctors the right to question patients about guns
in their homes and report that information to the
government. Oh really? I don't think you want to
go there Mr. President.
I see an all out war coming down the road. "We
still cling to our guns and religion," Mr. President
and I will go a little farther and add we also cling
to our constitution.

Editor:
And yet another letter writer misquotes the
2nd Amendment. In Sunday's Northwest Florida
Daily News, a letter, "A cheaper plan," says of the
Amendment, "It plainly states that the right to
bear arms is to protect ourselves from a tyranni-
cal government." I think it is time that we actually
look at, and analysis, what this Amendment really
does state.
The actual wording of the 2nd Amendment is:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the se-
curity of a free state, the right of the people to keep
and bear arms shall not be infringed." The first,
and most obvious, thing we notice is that it doesn't
include anything about protecting ourselves from a
tyrannical government. Nor have the courts made
any such interpretation.
As any high school English student would point
out, the subject of the sentence is the word "mi-

Police Safety Fund, NAPO, U.S. Deputy Sheriffs

litia" not the word "people." Yes, I know the Su-
preme Court has interpreted it differently but
that doesn't mean the Court was correct. The old
militia is no more and has been replaced by the
National Guard. Each state has a National Guard
under the control of the governor. Since the "right
to bear arms" is part of the same sentence with the
subject word "militia," it is obvious to me that it is
the militia (National Guard) that must be armed.
I believe another key word in the sentence is the
word "regulated." Since the NRA is opposed to any
gun regulations, I submit that the NRA's position
is in direct conflict with the Amendment that they
hold so dear. In any event, I suggest that any fu-
ture letter writers read the document before quot-
ing it.

police, disabled and children? So before you send
them a check, be sure all the money is used to help
others. These organizations will tell you a sad sto-
ry about starving children and veterans who need
help, so you want to send them money. I get 10-20
letters each month from these organizations ask-
ing for money. How did they get my address? How
can I stop this problem?

ALEXBRACK, Bright Futures Academic Top Scholar, is pictured here with
WHS Principal Russell Hughes, Student Services Coordinator Tamara Hight-
ower and Superintendent Carlene Anderson.

Alex Brack named Bright

Futures Academic Top Scholar


Each year, the Flor-
ida Bright Futures
Scholarship Program
designates one Flori-
da Academic Scholar
award recipient from
each district as the
Academic Top Scholars
(ATS) award recipient.
Walton High School
2012 graduate Alex
Brack has been named
this year's recipient.
Alex was selected the
highest ranked Flori-
da Academic Scholar


award recipient for the
Walton County School
District based on his
enrollment in a Florida
postsecondary institu-
tion during the 2012
fall term, the product
of his Bright Futures
grade point average
and combined SAT or
equivalent ACT score.

Alex is currently
attending Florida In-
stitute of Technology,
Melbourne, Fla. where


he is majoring in civil
engineering. He is also
a kicker for the FIT
Panthers football team.
While Alex was home
on winter break, his
former principal Rus-
sell Hughes, Student
Services Coordinator
Tamara Hightower and
Superintendent Carlene
Anderson met him at
his alma mater to offer
their congratulations
and to wish him success
in his future endeavors.

probationary status,
(yearly contract status)
which will allow the
teachers to be eligible
for benefits after the
four month temporary
period of employment.
The board then
moved to approve the
Florida Minimum Wage
increase of 12 cents per
hour that will mainly
affect substitute'teach-
ers as-well as approval,
unanimously, to bring
those substitute teach-
ers up to the minimum
wage.
The board moved
unanimously to approve
a student expulsion.
WCSB Attorney Ben
Holley explained to the
board the time restric-
tions concerning the
filing of a claim by the
board against BP for
oil spill damage. Hol-
ley said he was not sure
about specifics con-
cerning the amounts
involved, but details
would be forthcoming
after later meetings
with the legal firm rep-
resenting the district.
The board approved,
5-0 authorization for
Anderson to file a for-
mal presentation to BP
on behalf of the board.
Holley added that
Davis had been served
with a suit against the
board from a company
dealing with the dis-
trict. The Herald will
report the specifics of
the suit in next week's
edition.
In closing, Roberts,
Leddon and Ander-
son spoke on different
items, concerning stu-
dent expulsions and se-
curity matters.
Roberts told the
board she had received
calls from parents that
the board had changed
its mind about a stu-
dent's expulsion. "I just
want the board to be
aware and the public to
be aware, to my knowl-
edge, the board has not
reconvened and met on
any child's expulsion.
I want it made crystal
clear to all of our facili-
ties, the board does not
rule twice on students'
expulisons. They're
heard one time, their
punishment is set and
that's it. We have never
reconvened to change
our mind."
Leddon said she had
been contacted by many
parents about security
at schools and she un-
derstood from Anderson


that Student Resource
Deputies (SRD) were on
all school premises at
this time. "We have not
forgotten that safety is
a top priority for our
children," Leddon add-
ed.
Anderson responded,
"the sheriff and I have
been talking. We have
a task force that met
immediately after the
Sandy Hill incident. We
have a plan for immedi-
ate, mid-term and long
range goals and we are
working with the sher-
iffs department in a
collaborative effort with
Mr. Hicks being our li-
aison on the task force.
Our elementary schools
have had SROs [student
resource officers] on the
grounds since that in-
cident and are working
together on a budget
to try and maintain
that at least until the
end of the school year.
By then, our task force
will have come up with
their recommendations
which will be included
in the next year's bud-


get. I will be bringing to
the board a reccomen-
dation to keep these
SROs in our school for
the remainder of the
year. That is not in our
contract currently with
the sheriffs depart-
ment, but I will bring it
to the board at our first
meeting in February."
The board approved
a workshop for con-
struction at Walton
High School athletic
facilities for Feb. 5 at 2
p.m. to hear six compa-
nies' presentations to be
ranked later that day at
the usual meeting. The
board also approved a
workshop on Feb. 19 at
a time to be designated
at the Feb. 5 meeting for
nine architectural firms
vying for the construc-
tion contract at Walton
Middle School.
The next board meet-
ing will be held Feb. 5
at 5 p.m. To see more

ASSEMBLY


qua Center, as a gift to
the Center for use by all
of the famous people ex-
pected to stand at it for
decades to come. The
former first lady will
be the first featured
keynote speaker to use
it. "I'm so proud of all
of the students who
participated in making
what will become a very
historic piece," says
Mitchell. "Not only did
the students of Thomas
Martin's Construction
Technology class have
to learn about the spe-
cial cuts and stains to
make the lectern, but
they engaged in a spe-
cial learning process
rarely afforded for such
a classroom experience.
They communicated
with Steve Theus of the
National Park Service
at the Jimmy Carter
National Historic Site
in Plains, Ga. to get the
exact dimensions of the
piece now on display in
a museum in Plains, and
they also took a trip to
the small, historic com-
munity last Septem-
ber to see the lectern
they were reproducing.
Meeting the former first
lady just down the hall
from their museum tour
was an added privilege
for the class.
"Meeting Mrs. Carter
and being a part of this
project is a real honor,"
says Tristan Merchant,
one of the students
overseeing the project.
"We really learned so
much about building
this piece, with a his-


FROM PAGE 1-A


tory lesson thrown in
mix," he says. "One of
the most difficult things
about doing this proj-
ect to start with was
building the piece from
photos," says Merchant,
"but this was all worth
it. I learned a lot."
The former first lady
will address an audi-
ence of 800 composed of
Assembly registrants,
Chautauqua leaders
from throughout North
America, special guests
and select students,
faculty, administrators
of Walton High School
and the Walton County
School District.
The official Florida
Chautauqua Assembly
is a 4-day, educational
program for the entire
family comprised of fa-
mous keynote speakers,
breakout sessions, per-
formance teas, evening
dinner performances
and exhibits relating to
an annual theme. The
2013 Florida Chau-
tauqua theme is "A
Journey into the Amer-
ican Chautauqua Move-
ment," and Mrs. Carter
will speak on the signif-
icance of Chautauquas
in Rural America dur-
ing the great Chautau-
qua Movement which
began in the late 1800s
and lasted until the
early 1930s. She will
also discuss her com-
munity's efforts to re-
vive the Chautauqua
assembly which existed
in her hometown of
Plains, Georgia in the


early 1900s.
"We cannot be more
delighted to welcome
Mrs. Carter as our fea-
tured keynote speak-
er," says Christopher
Mitchell, president of
the Florida Chautauqua
Center, the organiza-
tion which orchestrates
the official Assembly.
"She understands the
significant role the
Chautauquas played
in rural communities
across the country and
believes in the work we
are doing in DeFuniak
Springs in reviving our
own Chautauqua in
collaboration with the
Walton County School
District and many civic
organizations and vol-
unteers."
Tickets for Mrs. Cart-
er's presentation are $10
and can be purchased
by calling the Florida
Chautauqua Center at

Deputies make strides against


THE DcFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,2013
I~ '~ ] I


methamphetamine labs; four arrested


Last week was not
a good week in Walton
County for criminals
involved in the mak-
ing and distribution
of methamphetamine.
The Walton County
Sheriffs Office (WCSO)
made four arrests made
in two days for vari-
ous methamphetamine
charges.
On Thursday, Jan.
17, while on patrol, a
deputy with the WCSO
noticed a vehicle parked
in the middle of Slalom
Way, in Santa Rosa


LILLAND


Beach. The deputy ap-
proached the vehicle
and made contact with
two occupants, Stacey
Nicole Scott, 29, and
Corey Lee Raybon, 27.
When Raybon opened
his door, the deputy
saw an active "shake
and bake" lab in plain
view. Raybon and Scott
were removed from the
vehicle and narcotics
investigators, along
with South Walton
Fire, were called to the
scene. The investiga-


tion into the rolling
meth lab led authorities
to find another bottle in
the vehicle with meth
inside. There was over
14 grams of metham-
phetamine oil located
during the arrest.
Raybon and Scott
were both charged with
possession of meth
with intent to sell and
trafficking in metham-
phetamine-14 grams or
over.
On Friday, Jan. 18,
members of the WCSO


RAYBON SCOTT


Vice/Narcotics Unit
executed a search war-
rant at 509 West Royal
Palm Ave in DeFuniak
Springs, the residence
of Lora Sue Lilland, 41,
and Troy Wayne Rob-
erts, 38. Lilland, Rob-
erts and a 16-year- old
juvenile were on scene
at the time of execu-
tion. During the search,
numerous items asso-
ciated with a "one pot"
or "shake and bake"
method of metham-


ROBERTS


phetamine manufactur-
ing were located and
seized. Also located
during the search was
a bi-layer liquid identi-
fied as "meth oil," pre-
scription drugs pack-
aged for distribution,
and numerous items of
drug paraphernalia.
Most of the items
were located in the com-
mon living and kitchen
areas of the residence.
The "meth oil" was dis-
covered on the kitchen
counter in close proxim-
ity to prepared food.
Both Lilland and
Roberts were arrested
and charged with manu-
facturing methamphet-
amine, possession of a
controlled substance
without a prescription,
trafficking in amphet-
amine/methamphet-
amine, possession of
drug paraphernalia and
child neglect.
All suspects were
transported and booked
into the Walton County
Department of Correc-
tions.

Bonifay Police


apprehend


two fugitives


Bonifay Police re-
ceived information on
the location of two sepa-
rate fugitives from jus-
tice. Both wanted for
absconding from state
probation and both
having previously fled
from law enforcement
officers since becoming
wanted criminals. It
was around midnight on
Jan. 14, that Rokelle Ka
Shayne Jackson, 26, of
Caryville, Fla. was ap-
prehended at a govern-
ment housing complex
in Bonifay. Jackson
had fled from officers on
Friday night when they
responded to a suspi-
cious person call. When
Jackson was asked for
identification he fled on
foot and is now facing
additional charges for
resisting arrest. Jack-
son is also a suspect in
a separate vehicle pur-
suit from November
2012 that is under in-


vestigation by the Hol-
mes County Sheriffs
Office.

Around 1 a.m. on
Jan. 15, a second fugi-
tive was apprehended
at a local motel in Boni-
fay. James Curtis Ev-
erett Jr., 21, also from
Caryville, was taken
into custody without
incident. Both subjects
had been under super-
vision of the Probation/
Parole division of the
Department of Correc-
tions. Jackson was on
probation for robbery
by sudden snatching,
while Everett had pre-
vious charges of grand
theft. Both subjects are
in the Holmes County
Jail pending further le-
gal process. The Boni-
fay Police Department
thank the public for
their assistance bring-
ing these two fugitives
to justice.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,


DFS woman

hopes for return

of cherished Lio-

nel train set


By JEFFREY J'OWI
ELL
David and Deosia
Everett dreamed of
spending the rest of
their lives togth'r in
their DeFuniak Springgs.
home. Fortunately for
David that dream came
true. Unfortunately for
Deosia it did not.
The pair met in New
York city while he was
an over the road truck
driver and she was a
nurse. Both had attend-
ed Howard University
and were introduced by
a mutual friend. Deosia
later worked at Har-
lem Hospital as a nurse
anesthetist. After being


married they followed
their respective carriers
for approximately 30
years before retiring to
D)Fu niak Springs were
David Sr. was born and
raised. Their home sits
across the street from
where he was born.
Throughout David's life
he was fascinated by
trucks and trains. Over
the years he collected
Lionel trains and liked
to play with them with
his son David Jr. and
his friends. At times
Deosia would even, get
onto the act.
"David just loved
those trains, he used
them to set a good ex-


ample for David Jr.
and his friends," said


Deosia. He wanted his
son to know there were


other things to do be-
sides be on the street.
I liked getting involved
around Christmas be-
cause I could set up my
Christmas town. We all
enjoyed the trains."
Sadly, David Sr.
passed away in 2000
and Deosia was hold-
ing on to the trains so
they could be inherited
by their grandchildren.
Between Thanksgiving
and Christmas of 2011
while Deosia was visit-
ing friends in the Chau-
tauqua Rehabilitation
and Nursing center
someone allegedly stole
the trains along with
some jewelry and other
items. She contacted
the authorities, who in-
vestigated the case.
"The police were on
the case very strong and
made every effort to get
the trains back," Deosia
said. "They came here'
to the house but noth-
ing ever came of the
investigation. I believe


someone had a copy of
our house keys."
To make matters
worse Deosia believes
the culprit may have
been someone she knew.
The police reportedly
found no evidence of a
break-in and nothing
was amiss except for
the loss of the items.'
"I wish the person
that took these trains
would find it in their
hearts to return them,"
Deosia said while look-
ing over the empty train
tracks. "These items
were a cherished part of
our lives. This is about
memories, not the mon-
etary value of things.
It hurts that someone
would take advantage
of me in this way. What
kind of person would do
this?"

Anyone with infor-
mation pertaining to
this case should contact
the DeFuniak Springs
Police Department.

BUYERS ANTICIPATING lots of green, as in the tree and plant kind, lined up early awaiting the
gates to open at the Annual Master Gardener plant and tree sale this past Saturday morning.


KELLY POWELL AND James Pelling manned
the grill and served more than 200 pancake plat-
ters before the morning sale was over.


MASTER GARDENER volunteers Joe Miller
and Paula Tutwiller (r-l) help Extension Office
employee Cheryl Honey (1) at the information table

Everyone


loves a


sale


By ALICIA LEONARD
Pancakes, books
and trees brought out
near-capacity crowds
this past Saturday at
the Walton County
Fairgrounds. A line of
anxious buyers for the
annual Master Gar-
dener tree sale wrapped
around the front of the
building in anticipation
of the gates opening at
9 a.m.
Many of those stand-
ing in line first got a
hearty breakfast put to-
gether by the Dogs-R-Us
4H Club. The club puts
the breakfast together
to donate proceeds to
Southeastern Guide
Dogs, Inc. Organizers
and volunteers told the
Herald they had served
more than 200 pancake
plates and were not fin-
ished yet with the fund-
raising effort. For those
in the community that
would like to donate to
this cause, volunteers
said the local extension
office, where the sale
was held, would' accept
donations on their be-
half during usual office
hours.
Inside one of the
smaller rooms at the
fairgrounds, the Friends
of the Library (FOL)
was hosting a crowd


BOOK LOVERS packed one of the smaller rooms at the fairgrounds to get
the best deal in books around from the Friends of the Library.


that was standing-room
only. Book lovers pe-
rused titles and packed-
up plastic shopping
bags with enough mate-
rial to keep them busy
and entertained for
many months. The sale
is always well attended
with shoppers packing
everything they want
for great price of $2 per
bag. Those who want to
donate books and ma-
terial to the sale can
do so at the DeFuniak
Springs/ Walton County
library.
The University
of Florida Extension
Office and Master Gar-
dener tree and plant
sale always draws a
crowd and this year
was no different. Shop-
pers brought their wag-
ons, wheelbarrows and
an extra set of hands
to help them haul off
everything from ap-
ple trees to blueberry
bushes and all types of
plants in between.

local extension office
and all of the events

they provide to local

THEDOGS-R-US4H
Club welcomed shoppers
early for a hearty break-
fast and a good cause.


CATE CAMPIBELL, Anita Harris, president of
FOL and Gladys Holley (l-r) were all smiles for the
large crowds that came to help support the library
through the "Friends" sale.


HAVE WAGON, will buy trees. Buyers came
with wheels to tote their picks away from the Mas-
ter Gardener Tree and Plant sale.


MASTER GARDENER and volunteer Chuck
Lawson was busy helping out buyers, including
this reporter, who picked up a cypress tree at a
great price and even got a hand, with Lawson tot-
ing it out for them.


CONTROLLED CHAOS is a fitting description when buyers are first let in the gate to purchase plants
,and trees. Master Gardener volunteers and Extension Office personnel help keep everything under control
and moving smoothy for those attending the much-anticipated event.


FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY member Mary
Burns stayed busy behind the counter during the
big book sale.

Dear Auntie Em,


/


Dear Auntie Em,

I never thought I
would be writing about
this, but it has gotten
me to the point that I am
not sure how to handle
it. During the last four
years, I have become
increasingly aware of
how racist some of my
family and friends are.
I was bowled over by
the audacity of some of
their comments on elec-
tion day as well as the
Inauguration.
I mean, these
are not bad people. I
grew up with them and
was raised by some
of them and they just
seem to get worse. But,
the jokes they say and
the terms they use, and
I'm not going to use
them here, well, I guess
I want to write an open
letter more than any-
thing.
So, let me say this to
my family and friends
who like to make jokes
and say things about
the people of different
colors: You are an idiot.
Not just- a usual, can't-
find-your-way-home
from the bar idiot, no,
you are a shortsight-
ed, ignorant, insecure
idiot who shows it to
the world every time
you rant and rave in
public, on social media
and with your friends
over your lunch of fried
chicken and greens, or
even when you're out
working your govern-
ment job, when you
open your mouth and
say stupid things about
the color of a person's
skin, your ignorance is
showing. Do you really
feel so minuscule that
the only way to feel bet-
ter about your own life
is to put a person down
over their skin color?
There, I feel better. I
know there is not much
else I can do except dis-
own my own friends and
family, and maybe I'm
a coward for not doing
more, but what do you
do when someone you
love is full of stupid and
you can't help them?


Zebra underneath

Dear Zebra,

Wow, you just get
right to the point, don't
you? Well, I like that
and J dislike stupid,
small-minded people,
but I am related to a few
myself as well as friends
who say questionable
things about others. The
political fighting has
raised it to an almost
art form the last four
years. I, myself, have
had to learn how to use
certain "block" features
on social media. I have
curbed trips to fam-
ily reunions and get-to-
gethers and have even
rethought friendships I
have had for more years
than you have probably
been born.
For me though, it's
not only about racism,
it's about hypocrisy. It's
about the cousin that
bemoans others getting
food stamps, while she
herself fed her children
that way their first five
years. It's the brother
that talks about pulling
yourself up'by the boot
straps, that had mom-
mie and daddy there
to pay his bills when
things got tough or he
needed a place to come
home to or the other
cousin that bemoans
the employment status
of the people he serves,
while working a job
his parents got him. In
short, it's about people
who can't see fault in
themselves and only
others. Instead, you
would think as often as
they talk about loving
Jesus, they would un-
derstand, "But for the
grace of God, there go
I.
We seem to have hy-
pocrisy coming out the
yazoo lately. I have of-
ten spoken up, because
well, all my brain cells
don't always run into
each other and pro-
duce a spark. I've also
been ostracized by
people I love for it and

By Norma Rediker


CODY CLYDE shared that the Victorian Era
house were old and apart of our history.


We can't all be like
artists Vincent Van
Gogh or Leonardo de
Vinci. But creativity
comes in various forms
and is woven in to our
everyday lives. It can
be. seen in the archi-
tects who design mag-
nificent buildings to the
landscaper who uses
decorative plants to cre-
ate beautiful grounds
and gardens. Whatever
your talents might be,
creativity is something
that can be nurtured
and encouraged and
that's just what West
DeFuniak Art Teacher
Kathy D'Arensborg has
instructed her students
to do.
Fifth graders at West


DeFuniak were encour-
aged to use their imagi-
nation and creativity
to design a Victorian
era house. They also
received a history les-
son as well. Student
Dalton Harrison ex-
plained that Victorian
house were decorated
with gingerbread trim.
This decorative trim
was made possible with
the use of scroll saws.
These saws were able to
make curves which en-
able new creativity and
mass production.
The students' art
work will be displayed
at the Chautauqua
Building during the
Chautauqua Assembly
on Jan. 24-27.


KATLYN COLVIN said that she likes learn-
ing new things and being able to create something

Answering the Call

BY RONNIE MCBRAYER


When my friend Scott
was young, he began to
experience a stirring
deep in his heart that
some Christians refer
to as "a divine calling."
How could Scott ignore
such a thing, condi-
tioned as he had been to
hear God's quiet voice?
Scott, in the words of
Feroll Sams, had been
"Raised Right" in the
Baptist tradition, which
meant he "was not only
Saved but had spent a
large part of his forma-
tive years in the House
of the Lord...and while
Methodists probably
could be Saved, there
was a question whether
any of them really had
been Raised Right."
Scott did not run
away from this calling.
He embraced it, and
after college, marrying
Karen (who also had
been "Raised Right"
and possessed this
same "calling"), and a
few years in seminary,


this couple found them-
selves working for one
of the largest missions
organizations in the
world.
Mexico, Central
America, the Middle
East, and the Persian
Gulf: Scotty and Karen
traversed the globe for
nearly 20 years in faith-
ful service, raising their
children, aiding indig-
enous people groups,
and living out the love
and witness of Christ.
It all came to a grinding
halt, however, when the
mission organization
for which they worked
deemed their medical
mission financially un-
sustainable, [but com-
pletely for reasons other
than shrinking dollars
and cents.
Simply, not enough
people were becoming
Christians. Conver-
sions. Baptisms. In-
creasing numbers of
those who have "prayed
the sinner's prayer."


Public professions of
faith. Churches be-
ing planted and cross-
topped buildings being
constructed. These were
the outcomes that were
required by the mis-
sion executives. When
these outcomes were
not forthcoming, the
organization refused
to keep pouring dollars
into such an "unrecep-
tive region."
Scott and Karen
pleaded with the mis-
sion's executives to re-
consider this decision.
Their medical facility
was serving an entire
region of needy people,
treating tens of thou-
sands of patients a year.
A part of the world that
had been antagonistic
was finding it increas-
ingly difficult to hate
those who were loving,
medicating, and saving
their children and el-
ders.
A mission executive
responded to the pleas


of Scott, Karen, and the
medical staff with these
words: "We have no ob-
ligation to the bodies of
those whose souls are
going to hell." The facil-
ity was defunded, dol-
lars were reallocated
to more "productive ar-
eas," and the missions'
staff, including Scott
and Karen, was re-
called to the States. To
this day, their hearts
are still broken.
Is this really the
gospel, having "no ob-
ligation to the bodies
of those whose souls
are going to hell?" Is it
"Good News" when we
reduce the love of God
to simple statistics or
counting the numbers
who pray a specific, me-
chanical prayer? Can
we, with any integrity,
disregard the crushing
misery of people today,
if those needs ar,e not
spiritual in nature, and
say we are following the
way of Jesus? The an-


swer to all these ques-
tions is an emphatic
"No."
The "Good News," as
Jesus proclaimed it, is
not an evacuation plan
to rescue people from
earth, or an insurance
policy for the afterlife.
Rather, it is a revolu-
tionary strategy to re-
deem the sufferings of
this world by putting
the rule and reign of
heaven inside people,
something Jesus called
the kingdom of God.
Thus, any sharing of
the gospel that ignores
the needs of this cur-
rent world is a distor-
tiorn of the gospel. Any
profession of faith that
focuses only on enjoying
and living in a future
heaven, rather than
sacrificing for and serv-
ing people on today's
earth, is not Christian
faith. And those who
follow a Jesus who con-
cerns himself only with
the hereafter, and not


bringing holistic change
to the here-and-now,
are not living out the
transforming message
of Jesus at all.
We have the chance,
if we will take it, to be-
come catalysts and con-
duits of the very real
kingdom of God in to-
day's world, because the
present, not the future
is where we follow Je-
sus. Today, not tomor-
row "is the day of sal-
vation," and the prayer
"thy kingdom come" is
more than words. It is
our divine calling.

Matthew 25:34 to 40
"34 "Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father,
inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world. 35 For I became hungry and
YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger
and YOU received me hospitably; 36 naked, and YOU clothed me. Ifell sick and YOU looked after me.
I was in prison and YOU came to me.' 37 Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink? 38 When
did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you? 39 When did we see you
sick or in prison and go to you?' 40 And in reply the king will say to them, 'Truly I say to YOU, To the
extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me.'"

South Walton Sweeps Blountstown


By PATRICK CASEY
The South Walton girls
and boys basketball teams
swept the Blountstown Ti-
gers in a District 4, Class
A match-up on Thursday.
The Lady Seahawks got
off to a sluggish start in
the opening minutes of the
first quarter before pulling
away for a 16-8 lead after
one quarter of play. Mor-
gan Kennedy had the hot
hand early as she scored
seven points in the open-
ing frame.
South Walton in-
creased the lead to 29-18
at intermission as Tayler
Menard canned two shots
from behind the arc in the
second quarter to help the
host squad overcome their
shooting woes from the
free throw line as the team
hit only 3-of-9 shots from
the charity stripe.
Mackenzie Perot took
over in the second half
as she scored 12 of her
16 points over the final
16 minutes of play. The
Seahawks led 44-20 after
three quarters and coasted
to a 53-30 victory.
Blountstown commit-
ted 22 turnovers in the
game and hit only 10-of-37
shots from the field in the
contest. Ashtin McMul-
len led the Tigers with 12
points as they fell to 11-7
overall and 8-3 in district
play.
The Seahawks moved
to 16-5 overall and 11-0 in
district play as Perot tal-
lied 16 points, Kennedy 14
and Menard 11.
The Seahawks followed
up that victory with a 47-


23 win at Liberty County
on Friday to finish the dis-
trict slate with a perfect
12-0 mark to wrap up the


top seed in the District 4
tournament which will
begin the week of Jan.
28 at South Walton High

JOHN DAVIES gave his troops a pep talk during their
game with Blountstown last week. It worked as the Sea-
hawks played a strong second half to defeat the Tigers,
then traveled to Liberty County and brought back a 69-
53 win to improve to 12-8 overall on the year. (Photo by

School.
The South Walton boys
squad rallied from a 25-
23 halftime deficit behind
the strong shooting of
sophomore Paxton Dixon
as he scored 20 points, 11
of which he tallied in the
fourth quarter, to give the
Seahawks a 58-35 district
win over the Tigers.
The Seahawks strug-
gled with their shooting
in the first half as they
managed to connect on
only 9-of-32 shots from
the field. The Tigers also
struggled from the floor,
hitting 9-of-28 shots, but
also managed to connect
on 6-of-ll shots from the
free throw line to hold a
two-point edge at inter-
mission.

NIOR GUARD MORGAN

was a little short for words
after signing the scholar-
ship into effect, but he
thanked everyone for sup-
porting him over the years
and he promised to keep
doing his best. "I won't let
you down," he said. "I'm
blessed to be here and to
have this opportunity."

earn a win against Mari-
anna in the opening round
of the district tournament
as they fell to the Bull-
dogs by a score of 1-0 in
a contest played at South

as the host squad took a
33-31 lead into the fourth
quarter.

in next week's district tournament, which the Seahawks
host. (Photo by Patrick Casey)

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,2013 PAGE 9-B

This Week in College Football History Jan. 21-27


Courtesy The National
Football Foundation &
College Hall of Fame.

Jan. 21, 1995: With a
chance to see how Alcorn
State quarterback Steve
McNair would do against
top-flight competition, the
Senior Bowl experienced
its earliest sellout ever in
Mobile, Ala. But the quar-
terback star of the day
was Penn State's Kerry
Collins. The Nittany Lion
signal caller had a 236-
yard passing day while
McNair only completed
eight passes as his South
team won a 14-7 decision.
Florida State linebacker
and NFF National Schol-
ar-Athlete Derrick Brooks
claimed game MVP honors
with 13 tackles on the day
in a game dominated by
defense.

Jan. 22, 1994: In what
many have called the most
exciting game in Senior
Bowl history, the North
scored 22 consecutive
points to take the lead in
the Senior Bowl only to


see the South comeback
for the 35-32 win at Ladd
Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
The North gained the lead
late in the game after two
long receptions'by Michi-
gan wide receiver Derrick
Alexander setup short
rushing scores, giving the
North 32-28 lead with 3:11
remaining. The clinching
score came when two reg-
ular season foes, Auburn
quarterback Stan White
and Alabama receiver
Kevin Lee, connected on
a 50-yard scoring pass.
White claimed game MVP
honors.

Jan. 23, 1999: The 50th
annual Senior Bowl fea-
tured appearances by the
members of the all-time
Senior Bowl team that
included numerous Hall
of Famers including Joe
Greene (North Texas),
Walter Payton (Jackson
State), Pat Sullivan (Au-
burn) and Lee Roy Jordan
(Alabama). In the largest
crowd ever to witness the
game at 40,846, Emporia
State (Kan.) running back


and Harlon Hill Trophy
winner Brain Shay helped
lead the South to a 31-21
win. Shay's big play came
on a 27-yard run off a fake
punt. The play kept the
drive alive, culminating
with a one-yard TD run by
LSU running back Kevin
Faulk and an 11-point
advantage for the South.
UCLA quarterback Cade
McNown was the game
MVP, completing 10-of-12
passes for 114 yards and
two touchdowns.

Jan. 24, 1999: Texas
Heisman trophy winner
Ricky Williams ran for
114 yards and scored two
touchdowns as the South
defeated the North 34-
14 in the Hula Bowl at
War Memorial Stadium
in Wailuku, Hawaii. His
second score of the day put
his team ahead for good
early in the fourth quar-
ter. Williams was aided
by Heisman runner-up
and Kansas State quar-
terback Michael Bishop,
who passed for 197 yards.
The North's MVP was Cal-


Davis quarterback Kevin
Daft.

Jan. 25, 2003: The Ro-
tary Gridiron Classic at
the Citrus Bowl in Orlan-
do, Fla., came down to the
final minute of the game
as Cincinnati's Jonathan
Ruffin kicked a 49-yard
game-winning field goal
with 13 seconds left in the
game, giving Team USA
a 20-17 win over Team
Florida. Grand Valley
State (Mich.) quarterback
Curt Anes set up the game
winning field goal on a 28-
yard pass across the mid-
dle to Buffalo tight end
Chad Bartoszek, who had
three catches for 43 yards
in the game. Bartoszek's

ball with just over a min-
ute remaining for the final
game-winning drive.

NWFSC opened activities center Jan. 16


Northwest Florida
State College (NWFSC)
held a Grand Opening
Jan. 16 for the college's
new Activities Center and
also recognized a major
naming endowment in
memory of.the late Janet
Nadel Morell of Niceville.
The Activities Center is
the final phase of a $25.5
million construction and
major renovation project
that also included con-
struction of a three-story
Student Services Center
completed in early 2012.
The buildings are con-
nected by a new central
campus green-space quad
and function as a hub of
campus life on the college's
main campus in Niceville.
The college opened the
ceremonies by announc-
ing a major facility nam-
ing gift in memory of the
late Janet Nadel Morell,
formerly of Niceville, who
passed away in 2004. "Fa-
cilities naming gifts pro-
vide important support for
the college," noted Lamar
Conerly, NWFSC Founda-
tion President, in recog-


nizing the gift from family
members Bob and Venita
Morell of Niceville and
Susan and David Cohen
of Potomac, MD. The gift
established the Janet Na-
del Morell Endowment to
name the large communi-
ty conference room at the
college's Costa Leadership
Institute, located on the
third floor of the Student
Services Center.
Earnings from the en-
dowment will provide
funds for equipment, in-
struction and program
needs of the Costa Leader-
ship Institute in memory
of Morell, who moved to
Niceville at age 79 and
enjoyed the many com-
munity and cultural offer-
ings of the college. Upon
completion of the pledge,
the endowment will total
in excess of $100,000.
College president Dr.
Ty Handy also thanked the
family, noting "This gift
provides long-term sup-
port for existing programs
and assists us in achieving
our mission of 'Improving
Lives' at Northwest Flori-

da State College."
The ribbon cutting por-
tion of the event centered
on the 31,675 square foot
Activities Center build-
ing which, along with the
Student Services Center,
were completed as a single
project by Ajax Building
Corporation and designed
by Sam Marshall Archi-
tects of Pensacola.
The new NWFSC Ac-
tivities Center houses the
college's Academic Success
Center, which offers a va-
riety of free tutoring and
academic support for stu-
dents, a college store oper-
ated by Barnes & Noble,
and the college's extensive
Student Activities pro-
gram. Offices of Florida's
Great Northwest, an inde-
pendent economic devel-
opment organization, are
also located in the Activi-
ties Center.
At the dedication for
the facility, Dr. Ty Handy
noted that, "In just the
last five years, we've seen
an 83% increase in the
number of student visits
to our Academic Success
Center more than 16,000
recorded visits in 2011-12
alone."
The Academic Success
Center provides every-
thing from free face-to-face
tutoring, to an increasing-
ly popular online tutoring


service called Smarthink-
ing, as well as a host of
other support for students
-such as assistance with
organizing and planning
major projects and teach-
ing techniques to reduce
test anxiety.
Another key component
of the new Activities Cen-
ter is a Barnes & Noble
College Store which oc-
cupies nearly half of the
facility more than triple
the size of the college's pre-
vious bookstore. Barnes &
Noble has a long history
of innovation and leader-
ship on college campuses -
with more than 700 college
store operations across the
nation serving more than
4.5 million students and
250,000 faculty.

PAGE 10-B THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,2013

Lady Pirates bounce back with overwhelming win against Freeport


By REID TUCKER
Ponce de Leon got back
on track after a painful
loss to arch-rival Holmes
County with a blowout 42-
16 victory against a visit-
ing Freeport squad.
For a bit of perspec-
tive, the Lady Pirates had
their 38-home-game win-
ning streak broken by the


Blue Devils on Jan. 14 in a
72-50 loss. Then Freeport,
which has faced more than
its share of adversity this
season, turned around and
played Holmes County to
within three points the
following day. Thus, the
Thursday, Jan. 17, meet-
ing between PDL and the
Lady Bulldogs had all the


trappings of an interesting
game, especially with the
Lady Pirates' top scorer,
Ashley Harper being tem-
porarily out of action due
to a minor injury.
However, Ponce (19-3)
came out in usual form
on their home floor and
played with the intensity
and 'team cohesion that
head coach Tim Alford
had been looking for from
his players, racking up a
22-7 lead over Freeport
(7-13) by halftime. The
Lady Pirates scored an-
other 10 points by the end
of the third quarter, hold-
ing Freeport to four points
in the same period, before
finishing off the Bulldogs
in more defense-oriented
final quarter. Ponce didn't
put up titanic scoring fig-
ures but nearly the whole
roster got in on the offen-
sive effort, with Delilah
Bass leading the way with
10 points on the night.

"We just wanted to play
harder," Alford said. "Our
effort wasn't really good
[against Holmes County]
and we wanted to go a
little harder this time to
make up for that. We've
been struggling a little bit
in that regard lately, but
I think we did a good job
of playing up to our ability
tonight."
Freeport, like Ponce de
Leon, played without the
benefit of its best weapon,
in this case sophomore


Mary Kate Myrick, who
scored 24 points against
Holmes County two days
prior. The Lady Bulldogs'
high scorer against PDL
was Shadia Mitry with
seven points to her credit.
The Lady Pirates had
an 11-2 lead at the end of
Q1, though it took some
shooting to get there. PDL
was 3-for-12 from the floor,
but the Pirate defense kept
Freeport from scoring un-
til 1:14 to go, when Katie
Decker put in a shot un-
der the basket. The second
period saw an improve-
ment in Ponce's shoot-
ing, as they put in four
shots in eight attempts,
while Freeport was 2-for-
6. Jordan Thomas hit a
3-pointer, joined by a pair
of 2s from Hannah Howell
and two points apiece from
Ashley Parson and Britta-
ny Alford, whereas Free-
port's two baskets came
in the form of a perimeter
shot by Charity Head and
a layup by Mitry.
The third quarter fol-
lowed much the same pat-
tern as the previous two,
with Ponce's players work-
ing together to score plus-
or-minus 10 points, though
this time they did most of
their work from the foul
line. Bass went 4-for-4 and
Jojo Carlson was 3-for-4 in
two trips, though August
Brown also scored 3 on
a clean fadeaway under
pressure. Freeport scored
four points in the period


thanks to a pair of 2s split
between Mitry and Stormy
Hansley.
Ponce de Leon went
4-for-5 from the floor in
the final quarter, but
Freeport had just one go
in despite 11 tries. How-
ever, the Lady Pirates
struggled at the stripe,
hitting just two foul shots
of a team total eight in
the period. Mitry scored a
nice 3-pointer around the


5-minute mark, but other
than two trips to the free-
throw line from Decker
the Bulldogs had run out
of steam. The Lady Pi-
rates retained possession
through most of the final
minutes to kill the clock
and settle the contest by
a 26-point spread to start
over their latter day home-
game winning tally, which
now stands at 92 wins for
nine losses.

Walton Boys 13-5


Huffman Put-Back At Buzzer Defeats S.W.


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves boys
basketball team rallied
from a three-point deficit
in the final two minutes
on the road at South Wal-
ton to steal a 69-67 victory
on senior Shaq Huffman's
rebound of a missed shot
by Amos Williams that
he banked in as time ex-
pired. Huffman, who got
rid of the basketball with
0.1 seconds on the clock,
banked the ball off the
glass and in from the mid-
dle of the lane to start the
celebration for the Walton
bench.
Senior guard DeShun
Tucker had drained a
three-pointer to tie the
game moments before
and then blocked a Vinnie
Ciurleo shot attempt at
the rim to start a scramble
for the rebound that even-
tually wound up in the
hands of junior Amos Wil-
liams. Walton then bilked
the final 40 seconds off the
clock to take the last shot,
leading to Williams three-
point shot and Huffman's
climactic rebound basket
for the win.
Walton(13-5) led for
most of the first half as
each team shot well from
the floor with the Braves
holding a 44-41 lead at
intermission. Tucker and
Huffman put up 10 points
apiece in the first half
with Nitro Gee providing
six points from under the


basket.
South Walton domi-
nated the rebounding ef-
fort for most of the game,
rallying to take the lead in
the second half as Wyatt
Kemper and Gene Has-
se battled for rebounds
and combined to score 25
points on the night with
nearly all of their shots
coming from drives to the
basket and rebound buck-
ets with an assortment of
free throws mixed in. The
Seahawks hit 17-of-27 free
throws in the game and
made 5-of-6 shots from the
charity stripe in the fourth
quarter but a couple of
critical turnovers in the
final three minutes aided
Walton's rally.

Tucker, who was held
scoreless in the first quar-
ter, went off for 24 points
while Huffman added 14
on the night. Walton hit
30-of-69 shots from the
field but went to the free
throw line only once in the
game as Nitro Gee missed
a free throw after being
fouled on his first made
basket of the night in the
first quarter.
Walton led 55-54 en-
tering the fourth quarter
but the Braves struggled
with their shooting, hit-
ting only 11-of-34 shots in
the second half after light-
ing up the nets over the
first 16 minutes of play by
shooting 19-of-35 from the


field. The Braves also had
20 turnovers in the game
with 11 coming in the sec-
ond half, helping the Sea-
hawks to take the lead by
as much as four points in
the fourth quarter.
Ken Randolph and
Shaq Huffman each had
an important basket in the
fourth quarter but Tucker
tallied 10 of his points in
the final frame and his
three-pointer to tie the
contest with less than 90
seconds left likely saved
the Braves from their sec-
ond loss in four days.
South Walton(12-9) de-
served a better fate as they
lost to Walton for the 19th
time in 20 overall meetings
in boys basketball. Five
players scored in double
figures as Darien Moore
and Bishop Waldrop each
had 14 points with Wyatt
Kemper finishing with 11
and both John Wolfe and
Elisha Gundrum adding
10 each.
The Seahawks had 18
turnovers on the night but
hit 22-of-58 shots from the
field and seemed to have all
the momentum they need-
ed in the fourth quarter to
pick up the victory. The
loss was the second game
in 11 days that South Wal-
ton has lost at the buzzer
as a shot by Port St. Joe
from half-court snatched
a 57-55 defeat from the
jaws of victory against the


Sharks on Jan. 11.
Walton likely needed
an emotional lift after los-
ing to Marianna for the
second time this season
on Friday night in a 55-
47 home loss that dropped
the Braves to 1-2 in Dis-
trict 1 of Class 4A. In that
contest, Tucker scored 27
points but got little scor-
ing from his teammates
as the Braves rebound-
ing woes were once again
evident against an athletic
and taller Bulldogs squad.
Amos Williams added
nine points in that game
and Alex Campbell had
five points with Ken Ran-
dolph adding four and
Huffman two points. The
Braves did not play that
badly in the contest and
stayed close the entire
night but dropped their
record to 14-33 against
the Jackson County squad
over the last 25 years.
Walton must now travel
to Pensacola and defeat the
Catholic Crusaders on Fri-
day night to force a three-
way tie atop the district
and force a blind draw for
the top seed and an auto-
matic playoff berth. A loss
to the Crusaders would
drop Walton to the bottom
of the district and a third
meeting with Marianna on
Feb. 8 in Pensacola in the
lone district semi-final.
Team Notes: South
Walton coach John Da-


vies is in his sixth year
at the school and holds a
69-88 mark in that time.
The Seahawks are hop-
ing for a Port St. Joe win
over Bozeman on Friday
night to grab the third
seed in their upcoming
district tournament which
they host in two weeks.
Walton coach Brad West
is in his third season and
holds a record of 33-35 at


the school. DeShun Tuck-
er has 904 varsity points
scored in his career after
the South Walton game
on Monday night. Walton
won the junior varsity
game over Marianna 43-
29 and over South Walton
53-22. The win over South
Walton guaranteed the
Braves a winning season
for the first time since the
2008-09 campaign.


DESHUN TUCKER is the leading scorer-among boys
basketball players in the Area 5 and drew plenty of at-
tention on Monday night as the Seahawks slowed him
down for a quarter, holding him scoreless. Tucker's 24
points from the point on, including a game-tying three-
point shot with 90 seconds to play, helped Walton rally'
for a road victory. (Photo by Patrick Casey)

MEETING


weather is forecast.
Brewer advised the
board that data has
been received about
pay scales used in other
mosquito districts. This
data will be provided to
each commissioner to
review and prepare for
a discussion of the de-
tails at the next meet-
ing.
The attorneys have
recommended that SW-
CMCD opt out of the
class action settlement
with BP,-but continue
to pursue the a claim
for $1.5 million in dam-
ages from the BP oil
spill. The attorneys rec-
ommend'that the board
should wait to see- what
is produced from liti-
gation rather than ac-
cept a settlement. If
the litigation goes to
court SWCMCD will
receive a percentage of
the resulting judgment.
The money that will be
distributed will come
from fines levied for ev-
ery gallon of crude oil
spilled.
The first bid, $3,300,
has been received for
replacement of the air
conditioning unit in the
back of the building. No
action will taken until
three bids have been
received and evalu-
ated. Funds will come
from the maintenance
account. The board au-
thorized the director to
spend up to $3,500 for


FROM PAGE 1-C


the replacement unit,
provided that three bids
have been received.
The Board also au-
thorized the director to
spend up to $5,000 after
receiving three bids for
emergency purchases.
Brewer reported
that a questionnaire
has been received from
the Pesticide Environ-
mental Stewardship
Program (PESP), a col-
laborative suite of EPA
partnership programs
that promote envi-
ronmental innovation
in pest management.
Among other things the
questionnaire asks how
many miles of ditches
SWCMCD cleans and
how many tires have
been disposed of.
SWCMCD environ-
mental policy permits
residents to bring,
throughout the year,
old tires and most
"white goods" (refrig-
erators, air- condition-
ers and other metal
objects), but no paper,
paints, solvents, etc. to
the headquarters and
deposit them into bins.
When the bins are full
they are exchanged and
the full bins are deliv-
ered to the landfill. The
policy does not allow ac-
ceptance of items from
commercial operations.
There is some concern
that the state will cut
funds presently provid-
ed to mosquito controls


districts for this pro-
gram. SWCMCD also
participates as a drop-
off site for the Walton
County's biannual haz-
ardous materials turn-
in day.
Brewer, Norris and
Commissioner John
Magee are signed up to
attend the Dodd Short
Course in Ocala, Fla. on.
Jan. 28 Feb. 1.
Brewer feels that the
on-site ponds where
mosquito eating fish are
produced are produc-
tive and should not be
abandoned. In addition
to the fish. SWCMCD
is now experimenting
with raising its own
chickens for the virus
detection program. The
first hatch of about 100
chicks is being wAtched
now.
Brewer reported that
the roof leak problem
has not yet been re-
solved, but the problem
has been determined to
include gasket deterio-
ration. All bidders will
be asked to resubmit to
include gasket replace-
ment in their bids.
Brewer will set up a
system to poll commis-
sioners about subjects to
be discussed at monthly
meetings. Dissemina-
tion of this information
prior to meetings will
allow commissioners to
be better prepared and
will improve the effi-
ciency of the meetings.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,2013


Education Consortium of South



Walton pitches collegiate high school


By ALICIA LEONARD
On Jan. 15, an hour
prior to the regular
Walton County School
Board (WCSB) meeting,
board members were
presented with the idea
of a possible collegiate
high school on the South
Walton Northwest
Florida State College
(NWFSC) campus in
conjunction with the al-
ready present collegiate
high school program of-
fered by NWFSC.
Seaside Neighbor-
hood School Director
Cathy Brubaker was
joined by South Wal-
ton High School Vice-
principals Johnathan
D'Avignon and James
Ross as part of the Edu-
cational Consortium of
South Walton.
Upon introducing the
group, Walton County
School District Superin-
tendent Carlene Ander-
son said, "I thought it
[the idea] was worthy of
discussion, this idea of
a collegiate high school
for south Walton."
D'Avignon told the
board that students
south of the bay have
very diverse needs aca-
demically. He made
note of the Boys & Girls
Club being built and the
proximity of the NWFSC
and the Coastal Library
to the college. Although
many students want to
fast track their associ-
ate's degree through
collegiate classes,
D'Avignon cited finan-
cial and transportation
restraints for many
students and families
wishing to participate
in the program held
on the main Niceville
campus. "That takes an
opportunity away from
them," he added.
Students who now
want to enroll in the
Niceville campus pro-
gram must attend all
classes 10th through
12th on the college cam-
pus. "When parents and
kids come to me and say


they want to attend this
program, they're gone.
They go to Niceville.
They and the talent
they have leave our
community," D'Avignon
said.
The group proposed
a working relationship
between the high school
and college for the first
two years of studies at
the NWFSC campus,
where the rooms, four
in total, would be leased
during the day for col-
legiate students. For
the last two years of
program study, the stu-
dents would still travel
to Niceville, unless the
program and demand
grew to support it.
Ross told the board,
"It's hard to see these
students we have built
relationships with
leave the area because
we cannot meet their
needs. This would give
our students in the
south end a way to stay
home and in Walton
County."
Brubaker told the
board that as a stu-
dent that paid her way
through college, this
would offer an opportu-
nity to families to have
those first two years
paid for when some
families were not con-
sidering college due to
financial restrictions.
"This model will serve
so many students in
Walton County and
could be a blessing for
many families that can't
afford to send their kids
to college.
The consortium met
with NWFSC repre-
sentatives a month ago
and realized that many
of their classrooms
are underutilized and
could be leased, along
with office space for the
program. In a differ-
ent spin, Brubaker said
the group believed the
classes in south Walton
would begin in 9th grade
in order for students to
be where they needed


to make the transition
to college academics.
"There are some strate-
gies we can provide to
make sure they're ready
to enter the 10th grade
and a rigorous course of
study," she added.
The group noted the
program may draw stu-
dents from Okaloosa,
who do not want to
cross the bridge as well
as possibly adults in the
future seeking college
degrees.
The past year, 87.
percent of students
in the collegiate high
school program fin-
ished the program and
it has been ranked the
top high school in Flor-
ida three times in the
last 11 years. Students
graduate high school
with an associate's de-
gree along with their
high school diploma.
The group would ex-
pect around 40 students
per grade with a maxi-
mum of 160 by 2015.
WCSB Chair Mark Da-
vis asked which classes
would be offered by the
new model that stu-
dents could not take
now. Brubaker respond-
ed that higher level biol-
ogy classes and college
success/reading classes
were two that were not
offered.
Smaller class size ad-
vantages, advanced col-
lege language classes,
such as Spanish and
some other fine arts
elective classes could be
offered, Brubaker add-
ed. Student transporta-
tion was also discussed
with NWFSC by the
consortium and the pos-
sibility that it could be
provided for students to
the Niceville campus.
D'Avignon also noted
that the program could
help retain instructors
as well in the area.
WCSB member Den-
nis Wallace asked how
the tuition for these
students is paid. "At the
collegiate, right now,


DIRECTORS AND FACULTY from South Walton schools presented a pro-
posal to the Walton County School Board for a possible Collegiate High School
for grades 9 through 10 in partnership with Northwest Florida State College,

the money they have
left over at the end of
the year, since they are
part of the state college
system, those funds
pay for the students,"
Brubaker said, adding
they had been in dis-
cussions with the state
college system about
funding for 9th and
10th graders, if the new
program gets off the
ground.
A sense of communi-
ty and accomplishment
were also mentioned
as pluses for the pro-
gram. WCSB member
Sharon Roberts asked
who would be charged
for the transportation
cost of busing students.
Brubaker responded
that the expense would
be shared between Sea-
side School and NWF-
SC.
Davis asked "Do we
have concerns, that es-
sentially, we are being
poached for our high
end students?" Group
members responded
that a majority or at
least half of students
from Seaside. Middle
School chose to attend
the collegiate program
in Niceville, rather than
South Walton High
School.
Dennis asked if there
was any research that
students that went
though the program
had a higher rate of
graduating or success
from higher degree
programs. Brubaker
responded she wasn't
sure if there were any
studies, but she would
look into it.
Davis responded, "I
sat on a graduate com-
missions committee
and quite honestly they
despise 20-year-old col-
lege graduates. It's just
the reality these kids
have to deal with. Going
to get an A.A. at 18 and
a bachelor's degree at


20 and not getting in at
the graduate programs.
There was a dead period
between their degrees.
Some would work for a
couple of years and re-
apply. Some came back
and some didn't. It was
a remarkable thing to
watch. It's a real dan-
ger. I warn parents
about it all the time."
D'Avignon responded
that having a more di-
verse roster of classes
could help students de-
cide which track dual
enrollment or collegiate
high school they would
prefer.
Davis responded to
the statement, "Frank-
ly, Mr. D'Avignon, this
is just me talking and
I'm certainly not speak-
ing for the board, this is
just my personal opin-
ion when I say this, but
I've been here since be-
fore charter schools ex-
isted and when charter
schools were announced
by Governor Chiles, his
reasoning was and the
current president's rea-
soning is that charter
school can be free of
all the regulations that
we are subject to, so
they can do more new
and innovative things.
Well, if that's the argu-
ment, free us. If that's
the argument, and we
got them to do it for
two years, we had, de-
regulated schools, in
fact Carlene was free
of hundreds of crazy
little rules and built
a wonderful elemen-
tary school. Frankly, I
think there's a bit of hy-
pocrisy going on here.
Whenever we have
Mrs. Brubaker come to
see us and says 'we're
looking at expanding
Seaside School,' that's
our failure, 'cause we
haven't been able to
provide what she's look-
ing for for her students.
And that's a failure on


our part. That's just the
way I see it. I haven't
decided if this is a good,
bad or indifferent idea.
I haven't made up my
mind yet, but it's on
me sitting here and
that's disappointing. If
the state and federal
government are really
serious about charter
being the way to go,
free us, let us do what
we know we can do for
our schools. Okay, I'm
off my soapbox. Thank
you."
Anderson responded,
"I see it not as a failure,
but as a restriction. If
we had four students
that wanted to take
a collegiate course at
South Walton High
School and we had the
money, we certainly
would. I see it as being
restrictive, not having
the funding to provide
all the things we would
like to provide. Charters
have a lot more flex-
ibility than we do. We
would be able to provide
a lot more opportunities
to out students were we
not restricted by bud-
geting. Also, class size
reduction, just another
issue. Charters are
still at school average.
If there's a failure, it's
a failure of our system
to not provide adequate
funding, not just to pro-
vide the needs but the
wants and truly, being
a collegiate student at
a high school is not a
need, it's a want."
Brubaker responded
that she saw it as nei-
ther a charter or public
school issue, but an op-
tion to provide a service
for the students of Wal-
ton County. "I think in
Walton County, we've
got to the point where
we can work together
to provide solutions and
models to provide solu-
tions to the students of
Walton County."

their time to the foun-
dation created to honor
Taylor, build and recog-
nize youth leaders, and
help high school and
middle school athletes
avoid injury.
In addition to partici-
pating on the Niceville
High School football
and wrestling teams,
Taylor was an honor
student who did volun-
teer work for his church
and community.
"This is our purpose-
driven life," Kathy told
the group.
However, the Hau-
gens credited others
for most of what has
been accomplished with
the foundation. Brian
explained that young
people, many of them
friends of Taylor, had
created the foundation,
originally kicking the
organization off by sell-
ing t-shirts. Later the
youths suggested that
the foundation offer a
scholarship in Taylor's
honor, Kathy explained,
and now three Taylor
Haugen Scholarships
are offered to student
athletes each year.
The Haugens ex-
plained that highly-
effective exoskeletal
protective equipment
has been in use for
some time by pro and
college athletes, guard-
ing against injuries, but
that this equipment has
not been widely used by
high school and middle
school athletes. Kathy
revealed that the Tay-
lor Haugen Foundation
is the only nonprofit or-
ganization in the U.S.
that is devoted to see-


ing that high school and
middle school sports
teams benefit from the
safety provided by this
equipment. This is the
goal of the foundation's
Youth Equipment for
Sports Safety or YESS
pilot program.
Brian demonstrated
exoskeletal protective
apparel and light, body-
conforming padding
manufactured by the
Evoshield company for
use by baseball players.
"This is the most mod-
ern stuff ever," he com-
mented.
Kathy told the club
members that the Tay-
lor Haugen Foundation
has developed a part-
.nership with Evoshield
and is now the nonprofit
arm of the company.
Equipment of this
nature is available for
use in football, baseball,
soccer and softball.
"We want to be sure
we educate and equip
our kids," Brian empha-
sized.
He explained that
the goal of the YESS
pilot program is to fur-
nish all high school
and middle school foot-
ball, baseball, soccer
and softball teams in
Okaloosa, Walton, and
Santa Rosa counties
with this modern pro-
tective equipment. The
program partners with
interested parties in
the three-county area to
work toward this goal
and to raise awareness
about the safety equip-
ment.
Brian noted that, in
.Walton County, sports
teams at both South


Walton High School and
Emerald Coast Middle
School had been outfit-
ted with the protective
equipment as the result
of a grant from the St.
Joe Company.
Kathy commented
that the foundation
would like to transform
the YESS pilot program
into an ongoing pro-
gram that is supported
by businesses. "We're
looking for partners,"
she emphasized, adding
that another big need
for the program is pub-
lic relations services.
Another area of em-
phasis for the founda-
tion is the Taylor Hau-
gen Trophy, which is
presented on a yearly
basis to a student ath-
lete from an Okaloosa,
Walton, or Santa Rosa
County high school, in
conjunction with the
All Sports Association.
The trophy recognizes
students athletes who
combine academics,
athleticism, leadership,
community service and
faith, as exemplified by
Taylor Haugen, who
have persevered to im-
prove themselves, and
who have lived up to
Taylor's stated motto,
"Never give up, don't
ever give up!"
In 2012, the trophy
was presented to Col-
lin Myrick, a Freeport
High School senior.
Three Taylor Hau-
gen Scholarships -are
awarded each year to
Okaloosa County high
school seniors who are
students athletes with
a 3.5 or higher grade
point average, who are

dation Youth Corps,
composed of local high

student volunteers and
devoted to community

In response to a
question, Brian com-
mented that the protec-
tive equipment costs
approximately $90 per

Last week, changes came at the, South Walton
TDC, that many say had been long overdue. With
the resignation of TDC Executive Director Dawn
Moliterno, discussion of filling the vacated spot is
one topic that will be getting much attention for
weeks to come.

The TDC had come un- position to director of the
der fire over the past sev- South Walton TDC, and
eral months, by not only to being one of the high-
those who wanted her est paid employees on the


county payroll.
One of the most diffi-
cult tasks that she faced
soon after taking the posi-
tion with the TDC was the
BP Deepwater Horizon
oil spill. But at the Jan. 8
BCC .meeting, Moliterno
reported that for the past
20 months, tourism was re-
bounding and each month
showed an increase in bed
tax. She had accomplished
much, including i assist-
ing with the Panama City
Beach Airport, and with
her team had won 13 na-
tional, regional and local
awards for their efforts.
But she then complained
that no one noticed the
work.
For many, all the she
had accomplished was the
biggest part of the prob-
lem. It was not her work
ethic, or her ability to do
the job, it was that many
complained that it never
benefited local businesses,
it was only the awards
that she and the county
seemed to be interested in
receiving.
She called many who
had said negative words
against her cowards, and
throughout her letter that
she read to the BCC, she
was very defensive. Once
again, no one, be it a citi-
zen, a business owner, or
a tourist, blames her for
a job not done. It was the
fact of how it was carried
out, and who actually ben-
efited from the decisions
that were solely up to Mo-
literno and her staff, with
most decisions not even


needing the approval by
the county.
SBut once again, when
talking to locals, and es-
pecially business owners,
they would all say the
same thing. "What does
the TDC do for me and my
business?" or "the TDC
needs us, we don't need
them. It is our bed taxes
that actually keep the
doors of that office open."
The wedding and event
industry really began the
"anti-TDC" movement
just after Moliterno took
the position at the TDC
in April 2010. Comments
that surfaced from her of-
fice and memos and state-
ments that were made
public, intentionally or
not, sent waves of ill-feel-
ings, anger, and then re-
taliation to the more than
100 wedding and event
businesses throughout the
county having to do with
the TDC's stand on ca-
tering kitchens, parking,
legal and non-legal home
rentals, and so on.
As stated in numerous
stories all over the South
and in many forms of me-
dia, this county's biggest
economy comes directly
from those attending the
more than 1,500 weddings
annually on the Emerald
Coast. The South Walton
Wedding and Event Asso-
ciation had tried for sever-
al months to get the TDC
to work with them on ad-
vertising and marketing,
but with no response.
It was at that point that
the rumblings began, and


the focus of anger from the
wedding and event indus-
try, the largest employee
in the county, turned their
attention on the 2012
county elections. With vast
changes at the "big county
desk," the organization,
along with several other
entities, were beginning
to turn their focus towards
the TDC.
It was not a witch hunt,
many just wanted an-
swers, and no longer was
it just the wedding and
event industry, but hun-
dreds of citizens. They de-
manded to know why the
TDC had so much pull, so
much freedom with county
funds, and why the work
like marketing and other
outsourced projects could
not be handled by one of
the many local marketing
and public relations firms.
That was also a sore
subject when it came down
to a company thousands
of miles away, represent-
ing and describing what
it was like to be on the
beaches of south Walton.
The decision by Moliterno,
and the approval of the
BCC, got the ball rolling
with county residents,
who also wanted to know
why $75,000 was spent on


a song about our beaches,
one that no one ever hears,
and that could have been
written for free by a local.
The TDC and Moliter-
no, over the last year, were
getting more and more at-
tention by those not only
in the press, but around
the nation, with the BP oil
spill ads showing three or
four TDC directors from
Mississippi, Louisiana,
Alabama and Florida.
Though the ads did put
a sense of confidence in
those who saw the mar-
keting campaigns on na-
tional networks, many say
the beaches, advertised or
not, were bringing them
back, just like it does after
a hurricane rolls through.
The latest resignation,
change, or whatever term
fits best, just goes to show
that no matter how good a
job you can do, not every-
one is going to be happy.
But on the flipside, it also
shows that no matter how
many awards or accolades
you receive, there is al-
ways someone else with
one more trophy, or one
more good story.
No word on a replace-
ment for Moliterno, or
when the position will be
filled.

MEADOWS FROM


post from 2004 to 2008,
told the group that she
has now been in of-
fice about 30 days. "A
lot has happened," she
said.
Meadows predicted
that residents would see
a lot of changes in the
county with "new blood"
coming into county gov-
ernment. With the coun-
ty administrator post
vacant, Meadows said
she had interviewed all
six final candidates for
the position twice, fin-
ishing theprevious day.
She described all six as
"highly qualified."
Meadows then turned
the meeting over to
questions from attend-.
ees.
Among the topics of
discussion were beach
parking, the South
Walton Tourist Devel-
opment Council (TDC),
the Light Industrial
land use classifica-
tion, Walton County
Code Enforcement, re-
cycling, traffic signal
synchronization, sports
and recreation, NRDA
projects, the RESTORE
Act Council, the county
administrator position,
the bike paths, the pro-
posed low-speed vehicle
path on CR-30A, the
possibility of tram ser-
vice on CR-30A, road-
side solicitation, the
planned roundabout
at CR-30A and CR-
395, and paving of dirt
roads.
Gulf Place Hom-
eowners' Association
President Lisa Davis
asked Meadows for an
update on the situation
with the beach park-
ing projects that had
been under discussion
by the South Walton
Tourist Development
Council (TDC). Mead-
ows responded that the
Walton County Board
of County Commission-
ers (BCC) had delayed
the initiative in order to
conduct a needs assess-
ment for the parking.
She explained that a
professional firm would
be hired to do a parking
assessment and pro-
vide recommendations
on where additional
parking was needed.
This information and
information on parking
options should be avail-
able within a couple of
month, Meadows said.
She noted that
what had already been
learned was that "Peo-
ple like to park where
there's activity" and
where other people are
present. Meadows said
a parcel across from Ed
Walline Park had been
offered to the county for
lease or purchase that
could "take the load off'
the Ed Walline Park
parking area. While the
property would be "pric-
ey" to purchase, it was
previously leased to the
county for a time, help-
ing with overflow from
Ed Walline Park, she
remarked.
Davis said the ho-
meowners' association
board of directors had
asked her to state their
opposition to the ad-
dition of this parking.
She commented that
the CR-30A community
had been developed in
the spirit of New Ur-
banism, with an em-
phasis on walking and
alternative means of
transportation---and
that the organization
felt that the addition of
a 100-space parking lot
in the Ed Walline Park
area would be counter-
productive to that con-


cept.
Meadows assured
Davis that input from
the Gulf Place Hom-
eowners' Association
would be considered as
the parking assessment
and recommendations
were reviewed.
Jacquee Markel'com-
plained that, during
the ongoing evaluation
process with the TDC,


it seemed that a look
at the proper size of the
organization was being
overlooked. "We want
to talk about the size
of the TDC," she said.
Markel also expressed
concern about under-
staffing with code en-
forcement, the spread
of Light Industrial to
inappropriate areas,
and the possibility that
there would not be "new
blood" in the county ad-
ministrator position.
Meadows responded
that she believed that,
resulting from the res-
ignation of the TDC
current director having
been announced would
come the opportunity to
examine the TDC's func-
tion and the number of
employees needed for
the organization. She
said she fully expected
this to happen over the
next few months and
that she expected to see
a focus with the TDC
on the use of the inter-
active technology "that
really most people are
using."
"I think everyone
agrees that we do not
want to see Light In-
dustrial everywhere,"
Meadows continued.
She explained that
the recently-proposed
Large-Scale Amend-
ment regarding Light
Industrial had been con-
tinued. The amendment
would have removed the
requirement for Light
Industrial to be located
on a major collector or
arterial roadway with
access to the regional
roadway network, and
would have added the
requirement for a com-
patibility review when
properties were pro-
posed for reclassifica-
tion to Light Industrial.
Commissioners had di-
rected staff to rework
the proposed amend-
ment in order to add
specifics on where new
Light Industrial uses
would be allowed.
Later, in response
to a question, Mead-
ows explained that the
amendment had been
proposed in conjunction
with requests to clas-
sify parcels adjacent
to business parks as
Light Industrial. She
said she had asked how
the previous projects
had been allowed to lo-
cate there, contrary to
code criteria, and that
no one seemed to have
the answer. Meadow
said she was working
on the issue of uses be-
ing allowed where they
should not go and then
being requested to ex-
pand.
"Code enforcement
needs to be beefed up,"
Meadows declared. She
said she had been dis-
cussing with the plan-
ning department about
ways to "close loopholes"
that are allowing code
violations. "to go on and
on." "Definitely code en-
forcement is a priority,"
she assured attendees.
Meadows also identi-
fied the paving of dirt
roads both north and
south of the bay as a
priority. She indicated
that she was in favor of
more than the current
$1 million per year be-
ing allocated for paving.
Paved roads can reduce
environmental impacts
on the bay and can
function as mitigation,
she added.
Steve Shepherd, who
has purchased a home
in the Eagle's Land-
ing subdivision in Inlet
Beach, expressed con-
cern about unfinished


derelict homes on his
street that he said need-
ed to be demolished. He
asked what the county
could do. Meadows re-
sponded that the coun-
ty was looking at the
problem and examin-
ing means of getting
property owners to ad-
dress problems with
the homes. Some of the


THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 24,2013


PAGE 1-C

homes in question, she
noted, are tied up in
foreclosure.
Shepherd noted that
the county commission
had waived a code en-
forcement lien on the
property next to his,
giving people who had
recently purchased
the home a deadline to
bring it up to code. Yet,
he said, the owner of
two derelict homes on
the street had not been
told to demolish them.
"Something's not right
there," he commented.
Meadows replied that
each of the homes is a
different case and that
she was not aware of the
two homes Shepherd
had referenced coming
before the county com-
mission for action.
Christy Scally raised
the issues of recycling,
synchronization of
traffic lights, and over-
crowding at Helen Mc-
Call Park sports fields.
Regarding recycling,
Meadows reported that
efforts initiated during
her previous term had
stalled out, along with
the "scratching" of a
recycling building that
had been planned at the
county landfill.
The county provides
recycling bins are vari-
ous locations, and in-
mates pull out what
Meadows quantified as
a small percentage of
recyclable items from
household garbage at
the landfill. However,
the county does not
provide a curbside recy-
cling program.
Meadows recalled
that eight years ago, the
county had conducted a
pilot curbside recycling
program. The response
had been a lot of interest
in south Walton County
but little north of the
bay, she remembered.
"I'm going to pick that
up again," she pledged,
assuring residents that
she would try to get a
recycling program going
at least in south Walton
County.
South Walton Com-
munity Council (SWCC)
Executive Director Ani-
ta Page later commented
that $265,000 had been
allocated last year for a
pilot recycling program,
which was stopped for
the holidays. While the
program never got far,
money is available for
it, she explained.
In response to a re-
quest, Meadows pledged
to contact the state De-
partment of Transpor-
tation (DOT) to ask for
synchronization of traf-
fic lights.
With regard to sports
and recreation, Mead-
ows said an agreement
was being negotiated
with the Boys & Girls
Club for use of their
fields for team sports.
She also told attendees
that a new recreation
area was being pursued
that would increase
recreation opportunities
"three-fold." In addition,
Meadows announced,
work toward getting a
community swimming
pool in place was under-
way. The critical factor
for this initiative, she
observed, is identifying
funding.
Meadows discussed
the recent attorney gen-
eral's opinion giving the
county the green light
to use TDC bed tax
funds for items such as
bike path construction/
maintenance and pur-
chase of land for beach


accesses. She observed
that now it is just a
matter of getting such
items in the TDC bud-
get. She predicted that
after the next spring
break and summer sea-
son, "I think we will see
some changes."
Beachfront resident
Sharon Higgins told
Meadows that she had
never seen one of the
TDC's "congeniality
people," who educates


the public on the beach,
an apparent reference
to the TDC beach am-
bassador. Higgins said
she often gives out in-
formation to beachgoers
in Seacrest---and that
they tell her they have
never received any such
information before.
Higgins added that
tourists do not want to
be bothered stopping at
the Visitor Information
Center for information
and that something has
to be done in the way of
educating visitors and
enforcing beach regula-
tions.
Meadows spoke of
TDC code enforcement
personnel and said the
TDC beach ambassador
had been hired recent-
ly. "I'm not exactly sure
what she does," she ad-
mitted.
Meadows observed
that many incidents oc-
curring during spring
break "get swept under
the rug." She asked if
attendees would .be in-
terested in a meeting
to discuss spring break
issues, getting a strong
response in favor. She
announced plans to
invite Walton County
Sheriff Mike Adkinson
and a representative of
the TDC to attend, say-
ing that they needed
to hear from the public
what is going on during
spring break.
Anita Page urged
for the formation of a
"point committee" to get
Walton County projects
ready for early funding
through the Natural
Resource Damage As-
sessment (NRDA) pro-
gram. This is part of
the funding coming to
areas impacted by the
Deepwater Horizon Oil
Spill.
Even though Walton
County had the third
most tar on its beaches
of the Florida counties,
Escambia County got
all its proposed projects
funded, in contrast with
Walton County, Page
explained, because Es-
cambia County had its
projects ready.
This is year two of
the early funding, Page
said, and a generic
coastal lighting pro-
gram is being funded,
something that Walton
County already has. she
explained.
Meadows was in
complete agreement on
the need for the county
to get projects ready.
She said the only Wal-
ton County project she
was aware of that had
received NRDA funding
was an artificial reef
project pursued by her
predecessor.
She called for getting
aggressive and econom-
ic development-savvy
representation to push
for this funding, "the
smartest person in the
room." Meadows also
spoke to the need for a
strategy.
She told attendees
that; once the county
had filled the vacant
county administrator
position, the adminis-
trator would be told,
"this is your responsi-
bility," and it would be
"full speed ahead" in
pursuing this funding.
Jenny Dargavell
questioned Meadows
about a volunteer group
in connection with BP-
funded projects. She
also asked about the
status of the path for
low-speed-vehicles
that is proposed along
CR-30A between Blue


Mountain Beach and
Grayton Beach.
Meadows encour-
aged citizens to apply
to serve on the volun-
teer group, which is
the Walton County RE-
STORE Act Council.
The 11-member council
is to decide on projects
to recommend to county
commissioners for fund-
ing coming to the coun-
ty through BP's fines,
in connection with the
Clean Water Act.
Meadows noted that
seats on the volunteer
council are devoted to
different disciplines.
She referred citizens
to the county Web site
for information on the
council and an applica-
tion form. Citizens with
an interest in the coun-
cil may also call county
administration at 892-
8155. The deadline to
apply is Jan. 31.
Regarding the low-
speed vehicle (a.k.a.
golf cart) path, Mead-
ows said the county has
applied for a state grant
that could be used to
fund its construction.
She explained that the
idea with the path is
that "we want to get
as many people out of
their cars as possible,"
and encourage people to
utilize "different modes
of transportation other
than their automobile."
Meadows said there
is an effort to connect
all the bike paths, and
that ,low-speed vehi-
cles are already on the
road, although they are
not allowed to drive on
roads with posted speed
limits of more than 35
miles per hour. Since
the section of CR-30A
between CR-283 in
Grayton Beach and CR-
83 in Blue Mountain
beach is posted with a
higher speed limit, that
section "popped out" as
a reasonable connection
for use by these vehi-
cles, she explained.
Meadows said traffic
numbers are very high
on CR-30A and that
10,000 cars per day tra-
verse the section east
of the CR-395/CR-30A,
where a traffic circle is
planned.
Mark Schnell later
questioned Meadows
about the planned
roundabout, saying that
as an urban designer he
would prefer to see a
traffic light instead.
Meadows responded
that the county had al-
located $1 million for
the roundabout, which
has been 50-percent de-
signed. She saw it as a
problem that the traf-
fic circle would result
in the elimination of
all the parking across
from the Seagrove Vil-
lage Market. Meadows
said her suggestion
would also be for a traf-
fic light instead of the
roundabout. A traffic
light would cost much
less, probably about
$300,000, she reasoned,
and she was not sure
that the traffic circle
would work well, espe-
cially with large truck
traffic.
Asked about the pos-
sibility of tram service
on CR-30A, Meadows
said there is such a pro-
posal for south Walton
County and that it is
to be discussed at the
Feb. 12 BCC meeting.
"Please weigh in," she
urged residents.
In response to a
question, Meadows said
she would like to talk to
speed bikers to get in-


put on what their needs
are on the roadways.
Mary Nielson urged
for better code enforce-
ment, saying that she
thought everyone could
live in harmony if infor-
mation on county codes
was provided and viola-
tors were ticketed.
Richard Fowlkes
observed that, in com-
munity meetings, the
issue of code enforce-
ment being lacking
always comes up. He
asked Meadows if there
was not a unified voice
by commissioners for
improvement. Mead-
ows responded that the
current situation is the
result of the code en-
forcement budget being
cut a number of years
ago, combined with the
growth that the county
is experiencing now.
She said interest has
been expressed on the
commission for enhanc-
ing code enforcement.
Meadows said she
thought it was possible
to have code enforce-
ment that is not con-
fined to responding to
complaints. "It all has
to do with funding," she
commented. "I will defi-
nitely bring that up,"
she pledged.
There was a call for
enhanced safety for
vehicles along U.S. 98
when entering and exit-
ing on the route to Hel-
en McCall Park, along
with a suggestion for
guard rails between the
coastal dune lakes and
roadways. There were
complaints that the
bike path was not being
well maintained, and
there was a suggestion
that low-volt lighting
be added to the path for
People using it in the
evening.
Susan Paladini
asked about current
staffing with the county
planning department.
Meadows described the
department as a "skel-
eton crew." She said she
has requested that it be
increase* t-o aloew for-
more than just crises to
be dealt with.
Tom Stein observed
that the county had re-
cently lost a very good
administrator (Greg
Kisela) after just a
short term. He said that
in his opinion the role of
the BCC should be over-
sight.
"Amen," Meadows
responded. She said
she would like' to see
the BCC role be that
of policy makers, with
the administrator being
charged with implemen-
tation of that policy. "I
think it's coming," she
said, explaining that it
will take strong leader-
ship by the new admin-
istrator for this to occur,
allowing commission-
ers to be removed from
dealing with minutiae.
The meeting was vid-
eotaped by Ray Zukows-
ki and is available for
viewing in its entirety
at www.neighborvision.
com.
Meadows promised
to continue to hold town
hall meetings as long as
there was public inter-
est in attending them.
Her next town hall
meeting will deal with
spring break issues and
is scheduled for 8 a.m.
on Jan. 29. It is also to
take place -at the Great
Southern Cafe at Sea-
side.

Additional town hall
meetings are planned
for Feb. 5 and Feb. 19.

lison Moorer, Jeffrey
Steele, Will Kimbrough,
Geoff McBride and a
host of others who un-

Husband/wife duo
Sterling Fletcher (Walt
and Amy Fletcher) have
played at the festival
every year since its in-
ception, and performed
together for almost 20
years (married 17). The
pair recently moved
from the Florida Pan-

still host the 30A Ra-

goer Alexis Hernandez
of Crestview said, "It
offered a great atmo-
sphere to be introduced
to new artists. . It is
way more enjoyable
than a stadium or larg-
er settings."
