Walton County School Board meeting

Odom donates land for future Hammock

Bay school; progress reports draw fire


By ALICIA LEONARD
The April 2 regular
meeting of the Walton
County School Board
(WCSB) opened with
the board approving
the agenda before them
unanimously after mov-
ing some items dealing
with school improve-
ment/deregulation
plans and construction


management contacts
in the consent agenda
to the action agenda
portion of the meeting
upon request by board
member Sharon Rob-
erts.
The board then
moved to public com-
ments. Hearing none,
the board moved to the
consent agenda, ap-


proving the agenda
unanimously and items
concerning agreements,
contracts and purchas-
ing.
The board then
moved to the action por-


tion of the agenda, tak-
ing up personnel recom-
mendations first, which
they approved 5-0, be-
fore discussing items
that had been moved to
the action agenda from


the consent agenda at

DFS Mayor Carpenter gets standing ovation

at his last full Council meeting in office


By REID TUCKER
The DeFuniak
Springs City Council
chambers were nearly
filled to capacity as
Mayor Harold Carpen-
ter presided over his
last full meeting before
installing the new may-
or in two weeks' time.
Carpenter expressed
his appreciation for his
wife, Hilda, and the
members of the Coun-
cil and city staff at the
April 8 meeting, thank-
ing them all for their
support during his
eight years as mayor.
Looking back on a ca-
reer spanning 50-plus
years, Carpenter never
imagined he would


hold public office, and
he said the successes of
his time in office would
not have been possible
without the help of his
colleagues and, most of
all, the love and sup-
port of his wife.
"I never thought
that I would wind up in
politics, but especially
not mayor of the city
of DeFuniak Springs,"
he said. "It's been quite
an honor (to serve the
city), but I don't need
all the honor and glory
for this. From day one
I've had a partner who's
been with me, that's en-
couraged me, that's lis-
tened on the telephone,
so many things.... She's


been a vital part of my
tenure as mayor. To-
night I want to person-
ally thank her, while I
have an opportunity,
for a job well-done."
The mayor will in-
stall his replacement
and one City Council
member at the next
meeting, scheduled for
April 22. City Hall will
host a going-away party
for Carpenter on Fri-
day, April 19, at 2 p.m.
Carpenter's brief ad-
dress came at the end
of a fairly busy agenda
packed with disparate
item of city business.
Firstly, and most prom-
inently, Terry Dawkins,
a representative of the


DEFUNIAK SPRINGS MAYOR HAROLD CARPENTER ACCEPTED A
PLAQUE in recognition of the city's support of the Choctawhatchee Military
Council, an organization that liaises between local communities and its mili-
tary service men and women. (Photo by Reid Tucker)


Choctawhatchee Mili-
tary Council, presented
the mayor with a plaque
in appreciation of the
city's longtime support.
The self-funded Choc-
tawhatchee Military
Council, which acts as
a liaison between local
communities and the
military to assist ser-
vice men and women
and their families while
deployed and once they
return from deploy-
ment, is the only active
organization of its kind
in Walton County.
"We appreciate all
you do for us," Dawkins
said to the mayor. "It's
a city-wide effort and
we'd like to give this to
you, the Council and to
the employees for all
the help and support
you've given us."
The Council also ap-
proved a raft of agenda
items and requests,
ranging from hiring
a new Public Works
Department admin-
istrative assistant to
approving a switch in
push-to-talk cellular
phone providers from
Verizon Wireless to
SSouthernLinc Wireless.
The new SouthernLinc
account is about $600
more expensive than
the current contract
with Verizon but in-
cludes all new phones,
free of charge, to city
operators.
The annual agree-
ment between the city
and the Walton County
Council on Aging for
the lease of the canning
building located at 41
Main Street also got the


members' unanimous
approval, provided that
the lessee continues to
pay for all necessary
improvements to the
building. Furthermore,
the Council approved
the recommendation
of the Planning Board
to allow city resident
Carlotta Smith to oper-
ate a fitness center and
day spa, C&C Fitness
Retreat, at her home on
124 N. Second Street.
The Council amended
the motion to approve
by including a provi-
sion to ensure that only
one business-related
vehicle will be on the
premises at a time, in
keeping with Smith's
intent to train clients
on an appointment-by-
appointment basis, so
as not to increase traffic
in the neighborhood.
City Manager Sara
Bowers' report included
updates on the first
phase of the t-hangar
site development proj-
ect underway at the mu-
nicipal airport, which is
80- percent completed.
The contractor carrying
out construction filed
for a 45-day extension
on the project due to bad
weather, but a test strip
is scheduled for paving
this week. The comple-
tion date for the entire
project is now expected
to be May 2.
Bowers also in-
formed the Council
that she would attend
a Gulf Power-sponsored
site evaluation and cer-
tification meeting in

Two seriously injured on SR-81


The Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) reported
that a Westville motor-
ist and a young passen-
ger from Kentucky were
seriously injured in an
accident that took place
at 7:05 a.m. on SR-81,
one mile north of CR-
181. The FHP report
stated that Gregory
Scott McDonald, 43, of
Westville, was traveling
south on SR-81. An ap-
parent "medical event"
caused him to become
unconscious and his
vehicle to drift into the
southbound lane oc-
cupied by a second ve-


hicle. In that vehicle
were driver Lacey Erin
Cavitt, 23, and pas-
sengers Anissa Lynn
Cavitt, 5, Griffen Eli-
jah Cavitt, 13, Samone
Rechea Cavitt, 10, and
Zach Dumas, 10, all of
Benton, Ky. The driver
swerved to avoid Mc-
Donald, but the vehicles
collided.
McDonald and Griff-
en Elijah Cavitt were
seriously injured. No
one else was injured.
The FHP report stated
that all involved except
McDonald were using
seatbelts. Alcohol was


not a factor. Charges
are listed as pending.

SCHOOL


dent Carlene Anderson
asked the board if their
preference in the recom-
mendation of school's
improvement/deregula-
tion plans would be in-
dividually or collective-
ly. Roberts remarked,
"It was me that had it
done. Collectively will
be fine." Board chair-
men Mark Davis put
the recommendation
before the board and
board member Faye
Leddon made a motion
on the recommenda-
tion. Roberts seconded
the motion to open it for
discussion.
Roberts said, "Mr.
Chairman and Madam
Superintendent, I'm
sure you knew I was go-
ing to ask for these to
be pulled. I've told you
all in the past that un-
til the school improve-
inent plans disregard
discipline in school im-
provement plans, it's
my fear that they will
stop disciplining chil-
dren so that they may
reach their goal on the
school improvement
plan, I would say nay
every time. That is why
I asked that it be moved
from the consent agen-
da." Roberts- thanked
the staff for their "hard
work" on the plans "but,
I just don't believe in
adding discipline to it."
Anderson asked Dr.
David Jeselnik, director
of secondary programs
for Walton schools if
the district was using a
state approved template
for the progress reports.
Jeselnik responded
that they had used a
state design in the past
but this design was for
the district. He asked
Roberts to help him
understand her con-
cerns about discipline
in the reports. Roberts
responded, "they are
addressing it in the
plan, but as I've seen
in schools, when teach-
ers or staff send them
up for discipline, they
are often not written-
up because they want
to meet their school
improvement goal by
not having [X] amount
of number of referrals.
Till that is removed, it's
nothing against you or
your plan, I just don't
think that's an accept-
able method."
Anderson said, "I'm
not aware of anyone not
writing up a before
Roberts interjected,
"we've discussed this
every time these come
up."
Anderson reiterated,
"I'm not aware of any-
one skewering up the
tallies by not writing a
disciplinary referral. I
need to know specifical-
ly what schools are do-
ing this so I can address
that if that is happen-
ing. I would ask you to
provide me that infor-
mation, because I don't
have that."
Roberts responded,
"You've been given that
information in the past,
but I don't mind provid-
ing that for you after."
Anderson asked Roberts
to provide the informa-
tion at that point in the
meeting and Roberts re-
sponded, "No. I will not
single out a particular
school right now. Not to
publicly embarrass any
particular facility. No,
ma'am."
Anderson asked for
the information to be
submitted to her as it
happens and Roberts re-
sponded that she would,
"like I have done in the
past," she added. An-


derson asked, "You've
given me names in the
past?" Roberts respond-
ed, "Yes, ma'am, every
time it comes up and
that's always my com-
plaint about it and it
hasn't changed. That's
why I was actually quite
shocked to see it on the
consent agenda."
Davis spoke up and
reminded the board


that discipline and at-
tendance were includ-
ed in the very first A+
Grading system and
were removed after
the first year. Leddon
asked why some reports
were different for differ-
ent schools. Jeselnik re-
plied they were going to
the new template and it
would not require "dis-
cipline number goals."
Roberts said that would
alleviate the problem
she has with the tie-in
of discipline to progress
report goals. Jeselnik
added that any school
that fell to a D level
would be required to go
back to the older form.
Roberts reiterated
her concern, "Everyone
wants to meet their
goal. They're going to
do what it takes to meet
their goal. I mean, let's
be realistic folks."
Anderson responded,
"Mr. Chairman, I can't
sit here and not defend
these school principals
and teachers as if they
are altering school,
skewering the school
discipline. I cannot sit
here and not defend
them."
"Say what you will
Madam Superinten-
dent," interjected Rob-
erts. Anderson and Rob-
erts attempted to speak
at the same. time and
Davis spoke, "Whoa,
whoa, one at a time"
and motioned for An-
derson to continue her
statement: "I don't be-
lieve that anyone in our
system does not have
the professionalism
to conduct themselves
with the integrity and
ethics that are required
to meet goals without
skewing information."
Roberts responded,
"Madam Superinten-
dent, I didn't say they
were maliciously doing
that, but with integ-
rity and hoping their
school achieves, if they
don't write up two stu-


dents or three students
or whatever for them to
make their goal...come
on now. You've been a
principal." Anderson
responded she would
never do that and board
member, Gail Smith,
had been a principal
as well and would not
"skewer" numbers ,on
discipline.
Smith entered into
the discussion at this
point. "The whole idea
of having a goal and
working toward a goal
is for growth purposes.
You do that to see im-
provement and you
need to know if you had
additional referrals be-
cause there could be dif-
ferent things happening
that could be causing
those referrals. It could
be anything from class-
room composition to in-
struction. It gives you
a ton of avenues of re-
search and information
to help you improve."
The heated discus-
sion continued with
Roberts asserting that
the goals made teachers
and principals more tol-
erant of bad behavior.
Anderson responded
that children are not
written up every time
they are sent to the of-
fice. "Not every case de-
serves to be written up."
Counseling or an easier
punishment dub to the
nature of the complaint
against the students
were alternatives men-
tioned by Anderson in
place of written repri-
mands in some cases
during the discussion.
"Referrals are very seri-
ous and we don't issue
them every time a child
is sent to the office," An-
derson added.
She also stated the
need for hard evidence
in cases where a school
is accused of not writing
up children due to goals.
"I need hard evidence. I
can't go from, we heard.
or we think or I saw. If


FROM PAGE 1-A


we have hard evidence
that you give me, or
someone gives me, I'll
be glad to deal with it.
But I don't deal with I
heard, I think, I saw,
someone told me."
Roberts replied that
she had spoken about it
every time the issue of
school goals tied to dis-
cipline came up. Ander-
son called to "let's make
it a public record."
Roberts did not respond
to the public record re-
quest by Anderson but
continued to emphasize
she had a problem with
positive reinforcement
of bad behavior and
with the goal tie-ins.
Davis spoke up and
called the question
for the board to vote.
Board member Dennis
Wallace asked if the
plans had always been
on the consent agenda.
Roberts answered no
and she had asked for
them to be moved to the
action agenda so she
could vote against that
item and not the entire
consent agenda.
Wallace said, "I do
believe if they are going
to be put on the action
agenda in the future,
and there's going to be
discussion, we need to
get specific." The dis-
cussion fell quiet. Davis
called again for the vote.
The progress/improve-
ment plans passed 4-1,
with Roberts casting
the dissenting vote.
The next item on
the agenda was a land
donation made by Jay
Odom and Crystal
Beach Development.
Walton County School
District Facilities Direc-
tor Mark Gardner told
the board that he and
several other members
of the staff went to view
the property, which
consists of 30-acres in
the Hammock Bay area
of Freeport, near the
recreation area and the
land was "highly devel-
opable." Gardner said it
had been "a pleasure"
working with Odom on
the donation. He added

that with growth rates
in Hammock Bay being
"astronomical" along
with other portions of
the southern end of the
county, he anticipated
seeing the land put to
use with a school struc-
ture in the near future.
Walton County
School District Attorney
Ben Holley cautioned
the board that although
it was fine to approve
and accept the dona-
tion, the board needed
to secure title insurance
on the property before
moving forward with
any type of plans for a
structure. Odom spoke
to the board about the
donation,"We felt like
it was the right thing to
do, to donate the piece
of land to the school
system." Odom said the
development envisioned
a possible elementary
and middle school on
the property in the fu-
ture and clear title to
the land should not be
an issue for the board.
The board thanked
Odom for the donation
and Davis called for a
vote.
Roberts said she had
a question about the
donation and that was
why she requested it
be moved to the action
portion of the agenda. "I
didn't want there to be
any question about it to
anyone's mind. The let-
ter you sent Mr. Gard-
ner references a Ham-
mock Bay Elementary
or Hammock Bay Mid-
dle School and I want-
ed it to be said tonight
that whatever board is
here when that facility
opens is generally who
names the facility and I
didn't want us to accept
your generous donation
with that being your in-
tent for it to be named
that."
Odom responded
that although he hoped
the facility would be
named that, it wasn't
a necessity or tied to
the donation. Ander-
son told the board that
Odom's office had been


PAGE 3-A
in contact with her for
the last few years and
keeping her updated on
the numbers of families
moving into the devel-
opment with school-
aged children and the
growth had been "phe-
nomenal." She thanked

to accept the donation
unanimously.
After the last selec-
tion of a construction

for the board. during
presentations, Gardner
told the board they were
asking for a possible
construction committee
made up of staff that are
comfortable and well-
versed in the construc-
tion process to weed
through multiple firms
and that could pres-
ent the top three to the--
board for their decision.
This would allow for the
firms to have time to do
full-length presenta-
tions to the committee,
yet not tie up the board
for an entire day during
the selection process
and not make the firms
that spend thousands
on the presentations
(with no promise of re-
turn) and drive as far as
from Jacksonville pos-
sibly not submit in the
future. During the last
selection process, firms
had around 20 minutes
each to do their presen-
tation.
Roberts asked Hol-
ley if this would be an
issue with the Sunshine
Law and the board's
ability to communicate
with Gardner outside
of meetings. Holley said
the meetings would
have to be held in the
sunshine and the pub-
lic welcomed to attend
if the selection process
was narrowed down
through the committee.

SEditorial Comment


Who


Wants to


be a County


Administrator?


By BRUCE COLLIER

I am not suggesting a new reality/game show,
it's a straight question. Just how many county ad-
ministrators has Walton County had since Ronnie
Bell retired? How much of the work has been done
by interim administrators?
Recently hired county administrator Bob Half-
hill, reportedly a highly qualified and competent
individual, put in his resignation last week, just
in time to make the Herald Breeze deadline (which
usually doesn't happen, don't think we don't notice
that here). That, and the verbal sparring between
the sheriff and a member of the county commission
over the recent arrest of a prominent citizen, made
for a pretty lively last week.
Getting back to the administrator, his resigna-
tion letter succinct describes it succinctly re-
ferred to a "present personal situation and continu-
ing family medical problems" as a "distraction."
Since he calls the medical problems "continuing," I
assume they were in place when he was hired. The
present personal situation is what's drawing the
most interest.
Halfhill has declined to be interviewed. The
county, on advice of counsel, likewise declined com-
ment. However, a member of the county commis-
sion stated that four women had spoken to the as-
sistant county administrator, making "complaints"
about Halfhill. The complaints were apparently
not yet made in writing, which has to be done be-
fore an internal investigation can commence.
Now that Halfhill has resigned, what becomes
of the complaints? Halfhill has not said anything,
possibly out of an abundance of caution, possibly
on advice of counsel. As I am writing this, the
county commission is preparing to meet to discuss,
among other things, who the heck to hire next for
the county administrator's job. Whether these com-
plaints are going to go any further, or be dropped
as moot, or even what they are about, is still up in
the air, along with the continuing administration
of the county, it would seem.
This is a $114,000 a year job, with benefits.
Halfhill was picked out of a field of 48 applicants.
He worked for about a month, reportedly drew four
complaints, and walked away from it. That doesn't
make tim look so good, but where I come from, he's
innocent until proven guilty of whatever it was he
was alleged to be doing.
I don't know what's wrong here (by that I mean
this county), but what is so bloody hard about pick-
ing someone to administer the county that will
actually stay and do the job? What's broke? Is it
the selection process including looking into ap-
plicants' performance at previous jobs? Or is there
something about the county government that
makes it impossible to work here longer than a
few months at most? If so, wouldn't it be lovely to
know? The alternative seems to be hiring adminis-
trators by the hour. Or maybe we could go through
a temp agency.

Editor:

You remember the other week I wrote and put
in the paper that someone had went on Newton
Busbee's property and broke in his building and
house and got a few things that did not belong to
them. Well I have talk to a deputy about this. One
thing, this stuff better come back to where it be-
long.
My brother since then has bought all of this
property from Newton Busbee. He got it all fix up
yesterday. So now if anyone is seen on this prop-
erty they will go to jail. My brother is Larry Cas-
sady. You see, Newton has cancer and can't stay
there right now. This property will have trespass-
ing signs up and there will be a fence around there
also. I hope the one that has this stuff can't sleep
and has nightmares at night. These people should
have known by locks on these buildings that there
were someone that still own this stuff that was
stole. What is wrong with people these days? Don't
they think that they won't get by long by doing
'something like this? I hope they are caught sooner
or later.
Like I said my brother own all of this now. Just
thought I would let you all know.

With all the turmoil in Walton County govern-
ment, it's time to clean it up! We've had five county
administrators in five years, public works director
gone, planning director applying for new job after
just over a year, TDC director resigning and al-
lowed to stay on as if she hadn't caused massive
damage within the community. We've had ethics
probes, an FBI investigation, conflicts of interest
to beat the band and that's just in the past couple
years.
When will our statewide reputation of cor-
ruption, be sufficient to make our "leaders" say
enough is enough. Right here, right now it stops!


Cronyism, intimidation and back room dealings
have got to make way for real leadership, honesty
and fairness. If only the purity and splendor of
Walton County's natural beauty, could give those
who govern the courage to take a leap of faith, and
let the sins of the past, stay in the past, Walton
County could become a role model for the entire
state. So which way will Walton County choose?
Will we go forward to be a role model or continue
to be the laughing stock of the state? Remember,
"it's always the right time to do the right thing."

I ET E TS HE E ITOR


Editor:


Webster's 1997 New World Dictionary defines
the noun patriotism as "love and loyal or zealous
support of one's country." Since love is a univer-
sally recognized feeling, few people are apt to dis-
pute any pretense of love for one's country. Con-
tradictorily the use of reason to determine what
constitutes "loyal and zealous support" probably
will provoke emotional arguments between peo-
ples of disparate backgrounds, levels of education,
insights, and objectives-possibly explaining why
Ambrose Bierce's Devil's Dictionary declares pa-
triotism to be "combustible rubbish ready to the
torch of anyone ambitious to illuminate his name,"
as well as the first resort of a scoundrel. Certainly
blackguard politicians use patriotism in rallying
support for various dubious causes and in brand-
ing challengers to official narratives as unpatriotic
or traitorous.
In any case dissenters frequently are depicted
unjustly as lacking in patriotism. For example
Samuel Clemens' love and respect for his country
is readily apparent throughout the Mark Twain
works although he spent 10 final years of his life
as a member of the "Anti-Imperialist League" ve-
hemently opposing U.S. foreign policy especially in
the Philippines and China. After the 1898 slaugh-
ter of Philippine Moro Muslims at Mount Dajo he
labeled U.S. troops "Christian butchers" and sug-
gested the province flags be similar to Old Glory
but striped in black and red with skulls and cross-
bones supplanting the stars. Strong words for the
times, others were incarcerated for less short years
later.
Clemens' notebook indicates that he gave con-
siderable thought to the nature of patriotism and
eventually determined Christianity and patriotism
to be mutually exclusive in principle and therefore
irreconcilable with "the spirit of patriotism be-
ing in its nature jealous and selfish." And he ac-


curately discerned that "the soul and substance
of what customarily ranks as patriotism is moral
cowardice-and always has been." Here Clemens'
specific musings are less germane than the fact
that he loved his country and was a loyal citizen
in every respect even when using his good offices
to openly criticize, chastise, and zealously oppose
U.S. foreign policies, wars, and imperialism. Inci-
dentally he defined "true patriotism" as "loyalty to
the Nation ALL the time, loyalty to the Govern-
ment when it deserves it."
Unfortunately the leader of the free world's gov-
ernment seldom seems deserving of loyalty nowa-
days. Loyalty is two-way street yet citizens' con-
sensus or referendum was not sought before using
shameful and barbaric planet-wide techniques to
kidnap, torture, indefinitely incarcerate, and even
murder suspected enemies irrespective of race,
creed, color, national origin, age, sovereign loca-
tion, or confirmed guilt-actions reflecting poorly
on each citizen whose moral cowardice precludes
opposing the injustices of homeland power-ac-
tions of a rogue superpower intoxicated by hubris
and hegemony.
Patriotism is not the acceptance of evil or ar-
guably unwarranted official acts. The non-violent
production of benevolent and beneficial change to
beloved culture is a highly patriotic undertaking.
Using transparency to reveal evil truths to moral
conscience never can be detrimental to good works.
Involuntary transparency is the sole transparency
of this nation therefore the likes of Julian Assange,
Wikileaks, Anonymous, and de facto patriot Brad-
ley Manning need support in the interests of desir-
able change and survival. Like Clemens has noted:
"in the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce
man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his
cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs
nothing to be a patriot-never has never will."

Re: Black history
Recently our nation honored Black Americans
during Black History month. Doing some research
of my own on Black History, I have found that most
Black Americans, including most other Americans,
are unknowing of their historical American heri-
tage because historical revisionists are purposely
omitting fundamental events which reveal our
Christian Heritage from our History textbooks.
For example: During the mid 1800s, the newly
formed Republican Party was made up of mostly
Black Americans. It was assumed that if you were
Republican, you are Black; The Civil Rights Act of
1864 and the Voting Rights Act of 1865 were passed
by a Republican controlled Congress. Beginning
in 1892 under a Democratic controlled Congress,
these Acts were repealed. Then the Democrats
in the Southern states enacted 11 different laws,
such as a poll tax, Property Tax, the Grandfather
Clause, etc., to prevent Black Americans from vot-
ing. It was not until 1964(89 years later), that
Civil Rights legislation was again passed; The Klu
Klux Klan was formed by the Democratic Party to
discourage Republicans from voting; In the 1857
Dred Scott Decision, the Supreme Court made the
opinion that Blacks were "not citizens," but "prop-
erty." A similar opinion was made by the Court in
the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Decision concerning un-
born human life; In 1820 the Missouri Compro-


mise, passed by a Democratic Congress, promoted
slavery in the Missouri Territory; After President
Woodrow Wilson, Democrat, 1913 to 1921, began
his term in office, all African Americans were re-
moved from government office. It was not until
1944 that a Supreme Court opinion blocked this
restriction on Black Americans; In 1950, Presi-
dent Dwight Eisenhower, Republican, introduced
the Voting and Civil Rights Act which was killed
by the Democratic Chairman of the Judicial Com-
mittee.
Most Black American heroes are rarely men-
tioned in History: William Nell (1816-1874), was
the first African American to be appointed to a fed-
eral government position; Peter Salem, an African
American Patriot, received 14 commendations as a
hero in the American Revolutionary Battle of Bun-
ker Hill; James Armistead, an African American,
is well known in his successful role as a double spy
agent in the American Revolutionary War.
Many Black American heroes are Christians,
therefore they have been omitted by revisionists
from American History books, for revealing their
past would reveal their faith in God.
This information, and more, can be obtained
from Wikipedia and Wall-builders.
Remember, how you vote does make a differ-
ence.

FamiliesFirst Network Invites the

community to the 4th Annual Family Fun Day


During the month
of April, Child Abuse
Awareness Prevention
month, FamiliesFirst
Network and friends as-
pire to bring awareness
to the often overlooked
issue of child abuse and
neglect. They seek to do
this through education
and partnerships in our
community.
FamiliesFirst Net-
work of Lakeview (FFN)
operates six service cen-


ters in District One to
provide protective ser-
vices: Escambia, Milton,
Navarre, Crestview,
Fort Walton Beach,
and DeFuniak Springs.
FFN represents a part-
nership with the De-
partment of Children
and Families to provide
an array of foster care
and protective services
in coordination with the
network partners.
In an effort to build
the trust and relation-


ships from the commu-
nity, the organization
will host the Fourth an-
nual Family Fun Day
on April 13, 2013 from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the
Wee Care Park on Wal-
ton Road. There will be
free food, games, and
local entertainment for
those who attend.
During the process of
coordinating this event,
FamiliesFirst partnered
with C.O.P.E represen-
tatives, Michelle Rule


and Natasha Heck-
inger, who assisted in
the organization and re-
cruitment of community
resources. This year's
event has brought or-
ganizations from the
north and south end of
the county together; all
with the same purpose
in mind: to build strong
families and keep kids
safe.
Family Services
Counselor, Arie Dykes,


has worked on this
event for the past four
years and excitedly re-
ports, "We really look
forward to this event
every year because we
get to see families take
their kids out without
worry of how much it
will cost. Everything
is free for the kids so if
you are usually telling
your children, 'no, you
can either do the bouncy
house or the games but


not both,' no worries!
They can eat and play
any of the activities
as many times as they
want and it will not cost
you a dime!"
FamiliesFirst Net-
work would like to
thank the sponsors who
have made Family Fun
Day a reality and they
hope to continue this
tradition for years to
come.


Fifth annual Tobacco


Free Florida Week


The fifth annual
Tobacco Free Florida
Week runs from April 6
- 13. In Walton Coun-
ty, efforts to reduce to-
bacco use are a collab-
orative effort between
the Florida Department
of Health's Bureau of
Tobacco, Florida De-
partment of Health in
Walton County and
the Walton County
Prevention Coalition.
Each entity provides
or supports activities
to change local tobacco
control policies, educate
youth to not use tobacco
and encourage those
in the community who
already use tobacco to
quit.
Building and main-
taining effective part-
nerships and infra-
structure to reduce
tobacco use is essential
to a successful tobacco
control program. The
Walton County Preven-
tion Coalition is the To-
bacco Free Partnership
for Walton County. The
Preve,-tion Coalition's
mission is to identify
the community's needs,
organize local resources
to impact the communi-
ty and make a difference
by protecting our kids
from substance abuse.
Adults and youth inter-
ested in tobacco preven-
tion and policy change
to make Walton County
a healthier place to live
are encouraged to at-
tend the monthly meet-
ings. For more infor-
mation, contact Bryan
Callahan at (850) 892-
8336.
Preventing the ini-
tiation of tobacco use
among youth is an im-
portant aspect of to-
bacco prevention and
control. Students
Working Against To-
bacco (SWAT) is active
in local middle and high

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 11,2013
1Freeport sets date for Council to


interview fire chief candidates


WITH THE WCSO's Zero Tolerance pol-
icy on underage drinking and partying by
Spring Breakers, we asked the people on
the street if they thought the policy would
deter Spring Breakers from returning to
the area next year.


ANITA HARRIS: I
don't think it will make
a lot of difference. Young
people tend to forget
quickly it seems.


BRUCE NAYLOR:
I do think it will make
a difference. We do not
want the beaches of
south Walton County to
be Panama City Beach.
The sheriff's efforts will
help maintain the beau-
ty and harmony that
makes our beaches spe-
cial.

Council that the Annual
Easter Egg Hunt at the
Sport Complex would
start at 10 a.m. on Sat-
urday. and it would be
preceded by the car
show at 9 a.m. Prepara-
tions for the rodeo are
moving forward.
Anna Hudson of Pre-
ble-Rish Engineering
reported the status of
three projects: The No.
4 Well control house job
has been inspected and
a punch list of correc-
tions has been prepared
and forwarded to the
contractor for action.
The work on the alti-
tude valve project for


the Portland water tank
may be completed next
week. The water system
model is approximately
90-percent complete.
Mayor Mickey Marse
advised the Council
that a request for a
waiver of fees for use of
the Community Center
for an all day seminar
has been received from
the Walton-Okaloosa
Council on Aging. The
City Council approved
the request.
The Council ap-
proved a motion to file
suit against. the Bish-
op's Landing property
owner who, after being


sent a 30-day notice to
improve/clean up the
property, has not taken
necessary action.
Councilman Ray
Jackson opened a dis-
cussion about the rapid
draw-down rate of water
from one of the storm
water retention ponds
in the Cross Creek de-
velopment. Councilman
Earl King reported that
he believes the water
going to this pond is go-
ing straight to the creek.
Engineer Charlie Cot-
ton will meet with King
at the pond where they
will survey the pond for
deficiencies.


LINDA BETTS: I
thinks it's awesome. I
think it will deter them
from-coming. back and
they'll choose another
place to try and go to
next year. I think it's a
good thing.


ARI VAN ZANT: I
think what they are do-
ing is ridiculous and
far above what is nec-
essary. I live in Santa
Rosa Beach and work
there. We make our liv-
ing from tourists and
crowds and it is affect-
ing everyone who works
in the industry. I keep
hearing stories about
damages and trash and
bottles on the beaches,
but I haven't seen that.
We rely on. visitors to

By BEN GRAFTON
At the beginning of
a very short meeting of
the Freeport City Coun-
cil on March 28, City
Clerk Robin Haynes
announced that the
testing of candidates
for the shift lieutenant
positions in the Free-
port Fire Department
has been completed.
Terry Raffield, Jr., Aus-
tin Cosson and Ritchie
Riley, had the top test
scores and they were
approved by the Coun-
cil to fill the jobs.
A special Council
meeting to interview
candidates for the fire
chiefs job has been
scheduled for April 10.
Capt. Tom Palmer
of the fire department
asked the Council for
approval to pursue a
50/50 grant from the
Florida Division of For-
estry to upgrade some
of the firefighters' gear
that is worn and in
need of replacement.
The total cost of the
gear would be between
$3,800 and $4,200, so
the city's share would
be one-half of the total.
The fire department has
used this type of grant
in the past. The Council
approved applying for
the grant.
Parks Director Shane
Supple asked the Coun-
cil for approval to buy a
new lawnmower at the
state contract price. The
cost of this type of ma-
chine was $8,800 when
purchased three years
ago. The purchase is
budgeted. The Council
approved the request.

resident killed on 1-10


Haywood Daniel
Reaves, 35, of De-
Funiak Springs, was
killed when his vehicle
drifted off westbound
1-10 at mile marker 87
and struck a tree. The
Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) report stated that
the accident occurred


on April 4 at 6:45 p.m.
No other persons or ve-
hicles were involved.
The FHP report stated
that Reaves was using
a seatbelt, and that an
investigation is pending
into whether alcohol
was a factor.

dations all the time,"
Holley said.
Roberts again ex-
pressed her concern that
speaking with commit-
tee members would be a
Sunshine Law violation.
After more discussion
between the board and
Gardner over possible
conflicts with the law,
Wallace spoke up and
said, "I'm not being cute
when I say this, but if
it's an issue, then don't
call him [Gardner]. Let
him fulfill his function
and bring the top three
or whatever number
we choose to the board.
I'm just saying let the
process work and let
him bring us the three
names. I'll be honest.
That day we had the
nine come before us, by
the sixth one, my eyes
were glazing over. And
I'm all for streamlining
processes."
Roberts said that she
had wanted the ques-
tion of Sunshine issues
on the record due to
previous training. Da-
vis expressed questions
about the numbers
used, "If you have more


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3-A


than 15, I think the
number five would be
better to bring to us. If
we have 10, then maybe
three would be brought
to us." Gardner told the
board he worked at the
pleasure of the board,
but he was just trying
to expedite the process.
Florida Statute dictates
the board will hear at
least three of the sub-
mitters. T h e
board made the first
motion to shortlist ap-
plicants to three if there
were 10 or under sub-
mission. This motion
passed 4-1 with Roberts
being the nay vote. Next
the board made a motion
to amend the first mo-
tion that if the process
came back with fewer
than 15 submissions,
the committee would
return to the board with
three names and if the
process drew more than
15 submissions, the
committee would return
to the board with the
top five firms. The sec-
ond motion passed 4-1
with Roberts dissenting
again.
The last piece of busi-


ness was about phase
one construction of the
Walton Athletic Com-
plex. The scope of work
for the stadium includes
concession, restrooms,
ticket booths, communi-
cation buildings, handi-
cap access, electrical
and more. Gardner said
he had try to cut any
"fluff' out of the budget
and Anderson added
that some of the electri-
cal that was originally
included in the Phase
II part of the plan had
to be moved to Phase
I, due to being needed
sooner than expected in
the infrastructure.
The budget set for
the improvements
three years ago came in
at $2,570,337. With in-
creased materials and
construction costs at
present time, the cost
has increased from the
original projection to an
exta $384,000. Gardner
said the district had
some funds left over
from completed projects
to cover the increase,
but needed the board's
approval to move the
funds to cover the con-


struction. Davis added
"I am so glad to see this
project finally get off
the ground." The board
moved to approve the
addition of Phase I-A
to Phase I construc-
tion unanimously with
Roberts adding that
she was voting yes with
the understanding the
funds used would not
pull from other proj-
ects needed by other
schools.
Holley spoke to the
board during comments
that the board may
have to move to litiga-
tion with "the BP talks"
due to the 'statue of
limitations running out
due to BP's litigation
with the government
and not responding to
the board's claims. Led-
don took a moment to
thank local media and
the public for help with
the Kids Closet project,
before the board moved
to adjourn.

the open director's job.
Pridgen said, "Steven
Jaeger gave a real im-
pression. I mean I think
he will do a lot for Wal-
ton County."
Jaeger is currently
employed as execu-
tive director of a public
agency for specialized
economic development
for the Regional Port
District in Peoria, Ill.
He has held marketing
director positions for
the Port of Houston Au-
thority and the Port of
New Orleans. He holds
a MBA in marketing
and distribution from
DePaul University and
he and his wife are not
strangers to Walton
County as they own a
condominium in south
Walton where they
have vacationed for a
number of years.
Pridgen said, "Been
in Tallahassee seeing
what's going to take
place and I hope it con-
tinues to move forward
to get the budget for
the [industrial] park at
Mossy Head. I'm real
encouraged about that.
I think this guy is go-
ing to be real good for
Walton County. If you
hadn't known where he
was from you would say
this guy was born and
raised in Walton Coun-
ty. He knew the history
of this county."
Board member Ed
Gardner agreed and
said, "I think it was
very clear between the
two candidates, which
one [Jaeger] was best.
He did his home work."
A motion was made
and approved to begin
salary negotiations with
Jaeger.
Gardner was appoint-
ed to negotiate the sal-
ary with Jaeger within
the budgeted range of
$55,000 $65,000, with
benefits. If Jaeger ac-
cepts he will need time


to give notice to his
current employer, but
the board would like to
have him on the job at
the earliest possible
date.
Board attorney Clay-
ton Adkinson began a
discussion about cor-
respondence from Kate
McEnroe Consulting
about the status of a
contract for services
between McEnroe and
WCEDA. McEnroe pro-
posed that since work
has, "... essentially been
abandoned for several
months..." that the par-
ties release each other
from the remainder of
the contract." Adkinson
will first review obliga-
tions under the contract
and when these issues
are resolved, send a let-
ter to McEnroe agree-
ing to the release.
Adkinson then re-
ported that a letter of-
fer has been received
from Terhaar & Cron-
ley, General Contrac-
tors, in which an offer
is made to purchase
4+ acres in the Walton
County Freeport Indus-
trial Park for $25,000
per acre of useable land.
Jim Cronley, speaking
for the company laid
out a general outline of
a project to construct a
facility on the property
to be designed for and
leased, for a period of 10
years, to Waste Man-
agement. Domenica
Farmer, district man-
ager for Waste Man-
agement confirmed the
proposal and said that
Waste Management has
outgrown its facility and
needs room for expected
expansion over the next
five years. At the end
of the 10-year lease pe-
riod, if Waste Manage-
ment does not renew its
lease, Terhaar & Cron-
ley would be obligated
to find a new tenant for
the property.


Board member Kel-
lie Jo Kilberg, president
and CEO of the Walton
Area Chamber of Com-
merce commented that
the Terhaar & Cronley/
Waste Management
project can be looked
at as a business reten-
tion project as well as a
business expansion.
The board approved
having board member
Mickey Marse, mayor
of Freeport, negotiate
the purchase with Ter-
haar & Cronley. Marse
would ask for a date
certain for the start of
construction and Cron-
ley said his company
would like to have 120
days from signing the
agreement until start
of construction. Pridgen
said he thought a firm
deal should be ready
for board action at the
board meeting sched-
uled for April 25.
Marse then present-
ed an opportunity to the
board for the purchase
of 33 acres fronting on
U.S. 331 Business near
the existing industrial
parks in Freeport. There
are 22 acres in the par-
cel that are suitable for
development. The prop-
erty was foreclosed and
is now owned by a bank.
The zoning would have
to be changed, but this
is not seen as a problem.
Marse believes an offer
will have to be made
soon or the property
may be sold to another
party. The board autho-
rized Marse to make an
offer of $200,000 for the
property.

Kilberg advised the
board that the Chamber
of Commerce is work-
ing on a ribbon cutting
ceremony for the now
completed Southern
Wines and Spirits facil-
ity in the Walton Coun-
ty Freeport Industrial
Park.

For the fourth year
in a row, the Freeport
Town Planters Society
' held its annual Arts
and Crafts Festival. The
event, took place April
6 in the Freeport City
I- Hall parking lot where
the sun was shining
and grills were smok-
ing. A large portion of
the day's proceeds will
go to Relay for Life in
an effort to cure cancer.
"This festival is held
to benefit the Ameri-
can Cancer Society
and the Relay for Life
organization," said fes-
tival Chairperson Judy
Aultman. "A portion of
the proceeds will go to
these organizations. We
would like to thank all
of the vendors and those
that attended today's
event. They are very
much appreciated."
Next year's event
will take place in con-
he junction with the Free-
port Easter egg hunt/
car show which is held
at the Freeport regional
Sports Complex. This
move is meant to give
everybody involved
more exposure and
consolidate what has
historically been two
successful events. Orga-
nizers believe any and
all attention brought to
ending cancer can only
be good for the general
public.
"We are here to
spread awareness for
cancer research," said
Relay for Life Purple
d- Court Team Captain
Chris McGlinchey. "Too


many of our loved ones
are lost to this horrible
disease."
Forty vendors offer-
ing crafts, foods and
games participated in
this year's event.

WHAT'S IN THAT NET? Students dipped from the pond and found larva, A WALK IN THE FIELD brought students in contact with gopher tortoises,
minnows, and plants at the Biophilia Center. burrows, longleaf pine, and other forms of plant and animal life at E.O. Wil-
son Biophilia Center.



Area students feel "a little like naturalists"


at E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center


Story and photos by
BRUCE COLLIER

E.O. Wilson Bio-
philia Center has been
putting the "field" in
field trip for students
from six school dis-
tricts. The students
are drawn from fourth
and seventh-grades,
and attend four-day
or two-day sessions at
the center that involve
classroom lectures,
demonstrations, par-
ticipation in indoor and
outdoor activities, and
contact with the plants
and animals that make
the center their home.
The curriculum, which
promotes Science,
Technology, Engineer-
ing and Mathematic
(STEM) subjects, coin-
cides with the state's
Next Generation Sun-
shine State Standards.
It also helps prepare
students for the Flori-
da Comprehensive As-
sessment Tests (FCST)
that await them.
Teachers are given


training in. teaching
the curriculum.
Center Director
Christy Scally recently
gave the Herald Breeze
a tour of the center, fol-
lowing in the footsteps
of fourth-graders from
Bay County School
District's. Northside
Elementary. After ar-
riving by bus, the stu-
dents all assembled in
a theater to watch a
short video welcoming
them to the center, one
in which actor Harri-
son Ford introduces its
namesake, Dr. Edward
0. Wilson.
An Alabama native,
Wilson is an emeritus
professor and honorary
curator in entomology
(the study of insects) at
Harvard University, a
two-time Pulitzer Prize
winner, and a recog-
nized expert on the
study of ants. Wilson's
scientific career began
early, when, at the age
of 13, he identified a
new invasive species
that had accidentally
been introduced into


CORN SNAKE, small but non-venomous and
useful.


Alabama (and has yet
to vacate): the red fire
ant. Wilson not only
lent his name to the
center, he coined the
word "biophilia," whose
Greek roots combine to
mean an affinity for
life.
Following the video,
"Pinetree Paul," a staff
member, gave the kids
a short speech on what
they would be doing,
and what to do with
any trash they might
have (or find). Leftover
food from bag lunches
finds its way to Miss
Piggy Winkle, one of
the resident animals.
Then four groups were
formed and sent to
separate classrooms
or areas for their next
session. On tap for the
morning were presen-
tations on aquatic tur-
tles, tortoises, a hike
on the long leaf pine
trail, dip netting, and
interactive searches in
the exhibit center.
One of the groups
accompanied Pinetree
Paul to a classroom
where they viewed
and held yellow-bellied
slider turtles, a species
native to this area. The
students generally en-
joyed holding the small
reptile, though a few
were hesitant. Holding
was optional.
The other groups
went off in the com-
pany of staffers Turtle
Bob, Ladybug Lauren,
Longleaf Laura and
Diamondback Dalton,
all of whom have back-'
grounds in science and
wildlife studies. Scally
said she does not have
a nickname.
Students in the in-
teractive exhibit sec-
tion of the center

looked at a model of
an underground har-
vester ant nest a com-
plex, multi-level maze
of paths and chambers.
Also on display was a
living and operation-
al bee hive. Students
were asked to locate the
queen bee discernible
by her length and size.
They also observed
the "waggle dance," a
form of communication
among worker bees in-
dicating directions to
pollen sources outside
the hive. Other dis-
plays showed tortoise
burrows, bear habitats,
and a bat cave. Outside
the center were spa-
cious cages housing
various birds of prey
rescued from the wild,
including owls, hawks,
turkey vultures, and
two Bald Eagles.
On the trail hike,
students were shown
longleaf pines at differ-
ent stages of growth,
and gopher tortoise
burrows. The gopher
tortoise, whose num-
bers have dropped
dangerously, report-
edly impacts some 360
other species. The cen-
ter is an official refuge/
residence for found
tortoises, which can be
brought there.
Another group of
students stood on the
edge of the center's
pond with dipping nets.
Each scoop brought up.
plants and tiny aquatic
life such as minnows,
tadpoles and insect
larvae. Students can
also receive training in
use of a compass on a
marked section of the
trail.
Labs and classrooms
are located at various
places around the prop-
erty, where students
can perform experi-
ments and demonstra-
tions of the impact of
oil spills on beach sand,
the process of recycling
and other related top-
ics.
The center states
that in its first seven
months of operation,
more than 4,000 stu-
dents in a five-county
area were taught, an
average of more than
140 students every
school day.

Dear Auntie Em,
I read your publica-
tion every week. The re-
porters do an excellent
job covering local civics,.
but still, I always hear
people complaining
about our local govern-
ment. Why is it people
complain so loudly yet
seem to make no effort
to take part in local
government until after
some decision is made?
Even then, many just
complain, rather than
try to do something to
change things. I'm sure
some of this is just hu-
man nature or apathy,
or both. Could you share
any insight you have on
why people do this?

Concerned and involved
citizen

Dear Concerned,
Your question is one
that people in the press
business often ask them-
selves. Outrage, many
would think, makes for


good copy where news is
concerned. But, I know
from hearing those that
cover the news speak,
it is alarming how few
people attend local
meetings until some
type of controversial is-
sue rears its head.
I think part of the
problem is people are
all so busy with just
living life. They have
kids, jobs, homes that
need to be kept up, not
to mention just being
exhausted from trying
to keep up with every-
thing. Many that be-
come driving forces in
local movements are
retired and have more
free time than busy par-
ents. But, that doesn't
mean I think it's a good
thing that all age levels
are not involved in local
government.
I wish local resi-
dents and parents could
try and make learn-
ing about civics a fam-
ily event. I'd love to


see more grandparents
bring their grand-kids
to meetings to teach
them the process and
the pride involved in be-
ing a part of their com-
munity and the decision
making process. I'd like
to see more parents at-
tend school board meet-
ings with their kids as
the school is in some
way the kid's govern-
ment that they function
in most of the day.
The bottom line is
people who want to at-
tend meetings will find
a way if it is impor-
tant to them. Others
would rather take the
armchair quarterback
stance and give deci-
sions some lip service
after the horse has al-
ready left the barn.


-aiy LIu- en L


aurly, inuse seem Lu
outnumber the involved
part of the community
sometimes. If everyone
attempted to be more
involved with local de-
cisions, by attending
meetings and being well
informed on local sub-
jects of interest, there
might not be enough
scuttlebutt for those
armchair quarterbacks
to complain about. So,
get out there and get
involved and support
the involvement of oth-
ers in local government
as well. Good luck with
your civics quest and
God bless.

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 found-
ing 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. I fell 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 II.'hen 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.'"

(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production,
and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water
systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public
health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does

Environmental Protection Agency' s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as
persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system
disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health
care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants
are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible
using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs
allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time study conducted
by water systems to identify distribution system locations with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). Water systems will use
results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" : not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/I): one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water.
In 2011 the Florida Department of Environmental' Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide
information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are 6 potential sources of contamination identified for this system with low to
moderate susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/
swapp or they can be obtained from the City of Freeport.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from
materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Freeport is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control
the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by
flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your
water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or
at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the
surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from
the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and
wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater

petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which
must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of
contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects
can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency' s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised
persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with
HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the
risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline

Walton Baseball Defeats South Walton, Baker


Braves 16-5 in 2013


By PATRICK CASEY
The Walton Braves
picked up a 10-0 victory
over Baker and an 11-1
decision over South
Walton sandwiched
around a disappointing
7-3 loss to Marianna
last week.
Brandon Bell put on
a hitting clinic against
Baker as he drove in
five of the Braves' 10
runs with a pair of hits
that saw the host squad
jump out to a 7-0 lead
over the visiting Gators
after three innings of
play.
Walton scored four
runs in the second in-
ning as they sent nine
men to the plate with
Chris, Murphy driving
in a run of his own dur-
ing that frame.
Bell lanced a bases
loaded double into the
gap to drive in three
runs in the third inning
for a lead the Braves
would never relinquish.
Brennon Orcutt
pitched the first four
innings of the contest
as he struck out eight
while allowing only two
hits. Kyle Sloan went
the final two innings
and got out of a bases
loaded jam in the top of
the sixth with the help


of some poor base-run-
ning by the Gators that
saw players thrown out
at third base and home
plate while trying to ad-
vance.
Walton ended the
game with three more
runs in the sixth inning
as Zach Burgess dou-
bled in Andrew Howell
and Kyle Sloan with
Zach Carter ending the
game with a base hit to
trigger the Mercy Rule
and a 10-0 victory. Seth
Tatman had a big night
at the plate as he had
four hits to help lead
the Braves onslaught.
In the 11-1 defeat of
South Walton on Mon-
day night, the Braves
took advantage of five
fielding errors by the
visiting team while
bashing 12 hits off of
the Seahawks pitching.
Chris Murphy walked
and eventually scored
with the help of an er-.
ror to give Walton a 1-0
lead after one inning of
play.
Brennon Orcutt dou-
bled and would later
score the second run of
the night on a Brandon
Bell single for a 2-0 lead
at the end of two in-
nings.
Walton chased South


Walton starter Tuck
Stafford from the game
in the third inning as
he walked Kyle Sloan
and gave up a single to
Zach Burgess to start
the inning. Zach Lance
took over on the mound
and recorded outs from
the next two batters but
then walked Zach Cart-
er and Jesse Cosson
to force in a run. Bell
drove in two more with
a single before Lance
could retire Murphy as
the Braves finished the
third inning with a 5-0
lead.
Walton added an-
other run in the sixth
inning as Sloan doubled
and eventually scored
on a groundout by Seth
Tatman for a 6-0 advan-
tage.

Tatman, who pitched
six innings to get the vic-
tory, ran into trouble in
the fifth inning as Lance
and Fletcher Wilson
singled with Noah Nev-
ille drawing a one-out
walk to load the bases.
Jack Flynn grounded
out to Walton shortstop
Chris Murphy to drive
in a run with Murphy
making a sensational
play on a tough chop-
per to get the second


out of the inning. After
a walk to Dustin Allen
to reload the bases, An-
drew Howell handled a
ground ball hit right at
the third base bag by
Sage Roberts to record
the final out of the in-
ning on a force play at
his station.
The Braves ended
the game in the bottom
of the sixth as they plat-
ed five runs, chasing
Lance from the mound
for Noah Neville.
Neville was unable
to get the final out to
move the game into the
seventh as Walton sent
eight men to the plate
with Howell drawing
a walk with Tatman
reaching on a throwing
error. Orcutt, Carter
and Nathan Cobb fol-
lowed with singles lead-
ing to Bell's bases clear-
ing double that ended
the game. Bell had three
hits in the contest and
five RBIs for the second
time in five days.
Orcutt also had three
hits in the game with
Zach Burgess adding

the Seahawks as they
fell to 10-9 on the year.
Walton's lone hiccup
occurred in a 7-3 loss
at Marianna on Friday
night. The Bulldogs
scored three runs in the
bottom of the first in-
ning with Walton rally-
ing for two of their own
in the top of the third
behind a double from
Zach Burgess.
Marianna (11-7)
struck back with four
runs in the bottom of
the fifth for a 7-2 lead
with Walton adding a
lone run in the sixth in-
ning off of an Andrew
Howell single for the fi-
nal margin.


The Braves are 0-3
in district play and will
have to rematch the
Bulldogs in Marianna
in two weeks to earn a
playoff berth.
The Seahawks and
the Braves will close
out their district slates
on Friday with South
Walton hosting Port St.
Joe (8-14) while Walton
will welcome in nation-
ally ranked Pensacola
Catholic (19-0) for a 6

Team Notes: Walton's
16 wins are the most by
a.Braves baseball team
in more than 15 years.
The Braves will hold
Senior Night festivities
on April 16 when they
host Freeport. South
Walton is in a fight for
the #3 seed in District
1 of Class 4A and needs
victories over Bozeman
and Port St. Joe to help
their cause.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 11,2013 PAGE 11 I-B

Lady Cats get a gutsy comeback win against district foe Laurel Hill


By REID TUCKER
As sports drama goes,
it's hard to improve on
seventh-inning come-
backs, but it's especially
nice when they do triple-
duty as a district win and
victory against a pitched
rival.
That was exactly the
outcome of the Paxton
Lady Cats' 6-5 victory at
home against District 1-A
foe Laurel Hill on Tues-
day, April 2. The Hoboes
scrapped to turn an early
3-zip Paxton lead into a 4-3
advantage of their own by'
the top of the fourth, but
the Lady Cats clawed back
for a tying run to deadlock
the scoreboard over the
next three grueling in-


nings. Laurel Hill scored
a run on botched tag at
home plate, but Paxton
had an answer in the form
of Chrissy Currid, Layce
Miller and Cassidy Bra-
zille, who all stepped up in
a big way in the final at-
bat of the game.

All three girls reached
on singles to load the
bases, after which time
Laurel Hill pitcher Mad-
die Varnum walked in
Currid for the third tie
in the contest. Then up
to bat came eight-grader
Payton Malloy, who had
thus far gone 0-for-2, pop-
ping the ball up for easy
outs in both cases. How-
ever, the last appearance


at the plate was definitely
no repeat performance, as.
Malloy crushed a shot past
the pitcher's mound and
beyond the outstretched
glove of second baseman
Sam Purvines, driving in
Miller for the win.
Paxton coach Steve
Williams said his team,
now 5-8 overall and 3-6 in
district play, has shown
steady improvement over
the course of the schedule
after getting off to a slow
start. If they keep playing
like they have been of late,
the Lady Cats have a good
shot to break .500 before
the end of the season, he
said.
"They've been resilient
and they always keep


battling," Williams said.
"We've had to be tough
this year because it was a
rough start to the season,
but we're on the way back
to where we need to be.
We were able to get out of
some jams tonight thanks
to our seniors, and then
for Payton to step up like
she did was a great confi-
dence boost for the team.
She was due for a hit and
she delivered."

The game was almost
entirely driven by action
at the plate, as batters
from both clubs managed
to find the rhythm of the
opposing pitchers or were
advanced to the' next base
via the odd fielding er-


ror or wild pitch. Brazile,
who pitched a complete
game for Paxton, had
three strikeouts but gave
up six hits and had four
walks, while Laurel Hill's
Varnum struck out two
batters and had seven
hits. The Lady Cats and
the Hoboes each had two
earned runs on the night.
Paxton's standout bat-
ting performance of the
game came from Sidney
Beck, who went 2-for-2
with two singles and an
RBI, though she reached
first in all four of her ap-
pearances at the plate
thanks to an error and
a walk. Laurel Hill had
three batters all get two
hits. Nicole Bailey and


Kristen Klevez eavh went
2-for-2 and Ashley Hat-
field was 2-for-2.

The Lady Cats, in the
hunt for a third- or four-
place seeding going into
the district tournament
(as such a rank means a
home game), traveled to
Malone two days later,
only to fMll 8-7. Paxton
led 7-0 after five innings,
but Malone tacked on five
runs in the bottom of the
seventh to get the win.
Games between other
District 1 teams played
Friday, April 5 would de-
termine the eventual tour-
nament seeding, but that
information was not avail-
able at press time.

Walton High School
basketball player Taliah
Moore was officially named
MVP of the Halifax All-

Saturday as she scored an
event record 33 points in
the West's 81-58 triumph
over the East at the Billy
Harrison Field House.
Walton's Ken Randolph
had 14 points and DeS-
hun Tucker added 13 but
it wasn't enough as the
East edged the West 87-86
in the boys contest of the
Halifax All-Star Classic.
Paxton's Dustin Geogh-
agan added six points.
The Walton girls soft-
ball team struggled last
week as they dropped an
11-1 decision at home to
Rocky Bayou and a 17-0
road contest at Marian-
na. The Lady Braves are
9-12 overall and will face
Pensacola Catholic in the
opening round of the Dis-

nis Center. Alexa Guara-
chi (South Walton High
School) would clinch the
win for the Crimson Tide
for her 102nd career sin-
gles victory, making her
the winningest singles
player in program history.
Stanford climbed back

The Bulldogs played
from behind all night on
the evening of Friday, April
5, at one point trailing 7-2
after the fifth inning's di-


sastrous first half, when
the Royals surged ahead
by four runs on three hits.
However, a palpably de-
termined Freeport battled
back, adding two runs in


each of the three remain-
ing innings in regulation
play, ultimately just one
run short of a tie with two
men in scoring position

enth. Nevertheless, the
swan-song effort ended on
a sour note for the Bull-
dogs as Ryder Newman,
the last Freeport batter
at the plate, smacked one
straight into the glove of
Jay second baseman Luke
Klavon, stranding Morgan
Hardee and Dakota Davis
on base to end the game.
The win gave Jay an
overall record of 8-7 on the
season with a 2-6 District
2-A record. Freeport, on
the other hand, dropped
to 3-12 overall and 2-6 in
the district. The loss also
marked the 10th straight
for the Bulldogs.
Jay got on the score-
board with a run in the
top of the first inning then
held off Freeport for three
more, adding two more
runs in the top of three off
a sacrifice fly to deep right
field by Taylor Kelly, scor-
ing Coltin Williams and
Tate Upton. Freeport's
bats woke up in the bot-
tom of the third inning,
when William Morrison
hit a double to score Noah
Simmons, who'd reached
on a single just before.
Morrison was driven home
by a single from Hardee
(2-for-3 plus a walk).
The Royals had their
run of things in the top
of the fifth inning though,
with their first six batters
all reaching base either by
hits or by fielding errors
on the part of Freeport.
Klavon got an RBI single
to score Williamson once
again, and Upton, who was
walked scored immediate-
ly thereafter on another
single from A.J. Nash.
Freeport switched starting
pitcher Darian Fannin for
Davis on the mound but
two pitches got by the new
Bulldogs pitcher, giving
up two more runs to Jay,
making it a 7-2 ballgame.
Freeport responded
with two runs of its own,
one after Jay's center-
fielder dropped a routine
pop fly and another when
Joseph Petrone stole his
way around the bags after


being walked. The Bull-
dogs held off Jay in sixth
inning and added another
two runs in their turn at
the plate. Hardee got an-
other single, followed by
a single from Davis, who
scored Dylan Bates, and
Petrone's sacrifice fly to
left field enabled a scoring
run from Hardee to put
the Bulldogs within strik-
ing distance at 7-6 going
into the final inning.
What a final inning it
was, as Davis walked the
first Jay batter and struck
out the following two, only
to give up a line drive dou-
ble to Zach Carnley, who
smote one down the third
base line to score Hunter
Vaughn for an 8-6 lead.
Davis balked, advancing
Carnley to third base for
no additional outs and
then a wild pitch gave him
the opportunity to beat
the tag at home plate to
put Jay up by three.
Though Freeport got
the final out, the Bull-
dogs were unable to seal
the deal on a turnaround
victory. Chase Caswell re-
ally got ahold of a pitch
and drove the ball down
the third baseline, then
he and Morrison, who was
walked, both scored when
Hardee reached first base
on an error. Freeport had
two outs but two men on
base and in scoring posi-
tion, but Newman's hit to
the Jay shortstop brought
an end-to thej act n-
packed contest.
Top hitters on the night
were Caswell, who went
3-for-4 at the plate for
Fr~eeport and Nash, who
matched that figure for
Jay. Pitching was simi-
larly close, as both clubs
used two pitchers in the
game. Fannin gave up five
hits and walked one batter
but struck out two, while
Davis had two hits, two
walks and five'Ks to Dal-
ton Edwards' six-hit, six-
walk performance. Car-
nley closed out the game
for the Royals with three
walks and two hits.

West DeFuniak Art
Students participated
in the 18th Annual
Picture the Music 5th
grade art contest spon-
sored by the Northwest
Florida Symphony Or-


chestra.
The goal of the con-
test is to bring visual
arts to life and prepare
for a performance by the
orchestra. This was ac-
complished by encourg-


ing students to create
scenes about The Wild
Florida Frontier to help
celebrate 500 years of
Florida history. Stu-
dents did so by creating
scenes about Florida


history, indian tribes,
and landscapes.

This allows students
to combine history and
the performing arts to-'
gether while making


learning fun.

Some winners were
rewarded with cash
prizes and others by
having their art work
recognized.

Town Hall Discusses Restore


Act, CR-30A, Spring Break


By BEN GRAFTON
Commissioner Sara
Comander opened the
Town Hall meeting of
April 8 before a small
audience of 25 30
people in the meeting
room of Walton Coun-
ty's Coastal Branch Li-
brary with comments
about the Walton Coun-
ty Strategic Plan. Cop-
ies of excerpts of the
plan's vision and objec-
tives were available to
the attendees and the
plan goals are posted
on the county's website.
Comander said that the
plan "needs to go deep-
er, but she doesn't know


how long it will take to
get there."
Comander reported
that she had been in
Tallahassee last week
to attend meetings with
other representatives
of a 23-county consor-
tium who are members
of the group affected
by the Restore Act. Of
this group, eight north-
west Florida counties
were actually touched
by oil from the BP oil
spill. She said that all
23 counties must act
together. A memo of
understanding with the',
governor provides that
only the 23 counties
can vote on Restore Act


problems. She said, "It's
like setting up a corpo-
ration with no money,
but fines from Trans,
Ocean, which leased
the rig to BP, should be
coming in soon."
It is very clear where
the money can be spent
according to Comander
- only on infrastructure,
environmental (wet-
lands) and storm water
control. If Restore Act
money is spent on some
other project, the rules
require that the expen-
diture be reimbursed to
the fund.
Comander agrees
with Sen. Gaetz' recom-
mendation that some of

the money be set aside
to be used for projects
in the future.
It was reported that
there have been some
discussions with Bay
County to try to use
Restore Act funds to
establish a "center for
excellence" in Walton
County. A Gulf Re-
search Facility is visu-
alized. Bay has a deep-
water port that would


be available and Walton
can offer a good quality
of life for center employ-
ees, but. so far, Bay does
not seem interested in
this possibility.
The meeting turned
to discussion of plans
for modifications to the
intersection of CR .-:5
and CR-30A to improve
traffic flow and reduce

With the many bless-
ings in beautiful south
Walton, there is one
that some may not
recognize---The Walton
County Snowbirds, Inc.
Residents know when
it is "Snowbird Sea-
son." What many do not
know is that the Walton
County Snowbirds, Inc.,
boasting more than
2,000 members, has
been helping students
at South Walton High
School (SWHS) pur-
sue their dreams since
2009.

What started as a
plan to donate at least
$200 a year to the
Snowbird Scholarship
Fund at SWHS for one
student in need, quick-


ly grew into what is
now two $1,000 schol-
arships. Vivek Likhite
and the Walton County
Snowbirds recognized
the need for a scholar-
ship that can be used
not only for a college or
university but also a vo-
cational / trade school.
This scholarship truly
gives all deserving stu-
dents a chance to pur-
sue their goals. This
year the members pro-
vided two $1,000 schol-
arships.

The board mem-
bers approved criteria
for applicants then a
SWHS panel evaluated
the applications. Two
senior recipients were
selected. The first recip-


ient was Ashley Brack-
ett who plans to attend
the University of West
Florida Honors College
and major in nursing.
The other was Marissa
Waddell who plans to at-
tend Northwest Florida
State College and major
in nursing. The Walton
County Snowbirds, Inc.,
provided these students
with a good start to-
ward fulfilling their life
goals. As daily lives are
disrupted with Spring
Break in full effect, the
benefit of tourism can
seem a distant concept.
It is nice to know that
guests from the North
have chosen to show
their gratitude in such
a wonderful, generous
way.

ECMS meeting April 18


"Treasure Mapping
Your Life" is the title of
a talk to be given April
18 to the Emerald Coast
Meditation Society.
Speaker will be Glenda
Wood, a real estate sales
agent who also works at
Gulf Coast State Col-
lege as English Learn-
ing Manager.
The meeting will
start with a 30-minute
meditation at 6:30 p.m.
at 480 N. CR- 393, San-
ta Rosa Beach, one-half
mile north of U.S. 98.
The ECMS is ecumeni-
cal and does not follow
any religion. There is
no charge.
Wood's presentation
will be an interactive
one on how to get the
life you want. It will
deal with choices as she
asks: "See it to believe
it, or believe it to see
it?" Each person will de-
sign a small "treasure
map." People are asked
to bring a magazine to
cut up.
A native of De-
Funiak Springs, Wood


said spending Sundays
with her grandparents
on their farm on what
is now the Eglin AFB
reservation, and going
swimming in the Bay
and Grayton Beach
were a special part of
her childhood. Both
sides of her family have
been Floridians since
just after the Civil
War.
Wood graduated from


Okaloosa-WaltonJunior
College (now Northwest
Florida State College)
and earned a B.A. de-
gree in Communication

Spring Break arrives for the South Walton Fire District


By BEN GRAFTON

Commission Chair-
man Maurice Gilbert
opened the April 1 board
meeting of the South
Walton Fire District
(SWFD) with a reading
of a proclamation recog-
nizing the performance
of the District's Public
Safety Dispatchers and
declaring, "...the week
of April 14 20 to be
National Public Safety
Telecommunications
Week in south Walton
in honor of the men and
women whose diligence


and professionalism
keep our community,
our citizens and visitors
safe."
Communications Di-
rector Lynnette Doyal
and Communications
Specialist David Swift-
er, representing the
Communications Cen-
ter, were present to
hear the proclamation
and receive words of
thanks for their work.
In the absence of
Commissioner Harry
Millsaps due to illness,
Gilbert presented the
financial report for the

month and said, "...
you have the Operat-
ing Cash statement
of $4,548,582 and in
the Lifeguard Account
there is $255,000. The
Impact Fee Account
is $377,814. Then we
have various reserve
balances in the total of
$5,319,000."
Fire Chief Rick Tal-
bert interjected, "At last
month's meeting, Com-
missioner Crawford
brought up the point
that on the Impact Fee
report she would like
to see the explanation
when we have a voided
out impact fee. ...We
are looking at some al-
ternatives, but we went
back to the practice of
our previous fiscal of-
ficer and that's how we
did it [noted the ex-
planations] this time."
Crawford responded,
"This is fine for now."
Referring to bud-
geted income, Com-
missioner Mike Stange
said, "For six months,
now, we are trending to
be above budget. ...ad
valorem taxes keep
coming in every month
higher than budget."
Talbert commented
that trending also ap-
pears to be above bud-
get for other small es-
timated receipts and


he cited bonfires as an
example.
Stange added that he
would like to see new
impact fee estimates
based on the revised
square footage method
of calculating fees due.

The board approved
payment of the $1,120
invoice for legal fees
submitted by the Mat-
thews and Jones law
firm. Most of the charg-
es were for consulta-
tions and investigative
research about impact
fees.
Talbert presented
the Emergency Re-
sponse Activity report
for March including 19
fire calls and 321 medi-
cal calls, both of which
are higher than experi-
ence in 2012. During the
month there were 1,549
calls to the Communi-
cations Center about
which he said, "That is
quite a contrasting dif-
ference from the month
before when 904 calls
were received." After
startup on March 9,
2013, lifeguard services
reported four rescues
and 18 medical inci-
dents from nine differ-
ent .locations on the
beaches.
Talbert said, "That
first week of the kickoff


for Spring Break, we had
an incredible amount
of people here, but the
weather conditions re-
ally didn't permit these
young people to get
in the water. So, from
a water rescue stand
point, you couldn't have
asked for a better first
two weeks. ...On the
other side of that our
firefighters and para-
medics were extremely
busy and ran the gamut
of all the Spring Break
issues that we see."
Talbert reported
that the South Walton
Tourist Development
Council (TDC) and Wal-
ton County have been
working closely with
the area of Seascape
for a location to put the
ninth lifeguard tower.
In the absence of them
striking an agreement,
Gary Wise reached out
to another nearby ho-
meowners group where
there is a small section
of public beach and the
ninth tower will be lo-
cated-at that spot. Tal-
bert will notify TDC of
this action.
Commissioner Jack
Abbit recommended
that the board approve
the legal services agree-
ment that has been
worked out with attor-
ney Reca Rene Youell.


The board followed his
recommendation and
approved the agree-
ment. Meanwhile, Nor-
ris and Youell are work-
ing on the transition
from one to the other.
Abbit, with thanks,
complimented Norris
for the work she has
done.
Chief Marc Anderson
advised the Board that
Mr. Gomez, the tenant
in the CR-393 property,
intends to vacate the
property. Gomez has
given Anderson a check
in the amount of $1,815
as the first month of a
two-month extension to
permit him to move. Tal-
bert said, "There have
not been any inquires
[from potential tenants]
about the property at
this time." and then An-
derson said, "There has
been no advertising to
date."

After some discus-
sion, the board agreed
that a month-to-month
extension would be al-
right, but a provision
would be incorporated
that would give Gomez
a 30-day notice to va-
cate in the event a new
tenant pressed for ac-
cess to the property.
This provision was ap-
proved by the board.


Actress Jada Pinkett
Smith is not only a tal-
ented thespian but in a
sea of celebrity nitwits
she remains anchored,
simultaneously throw-
ing out life-rafts of wis-
dom (and it's not often,
let me rephrase, it is
practically never that I
care for anything said
by a celebrity--actor,
politician, computer
animated mascot-but
Pinkett's comments
hit the bulls-eye of in-
sight).
This week, Pinkett
had entertainment
channels abuzz when
she declared of her hus-
band, "[Will] can do
whatever [he] wants, as
long as [he] can look at
[himself] in the mirror
and be OK, because at
the end of the day Will
is his own man. I'm here
as his partner, but he is
his own man. He has to
decide who he wants to


be and that's not for me
to do for him."
Implications of an
open marriage were dis-
sected like a high school
biology project by media
anchors who have no in-
timate knowledge, of or
stake in the couple's life.
Yet the self-confidence
and emotional maturity
of such a statement has
relationship therapists
rallying others to fol-
low-suit.
Not long before her
statement about pre-
serving individual in-
tegrity in marriage,
Pinkett wrote a letter
which went viral about
blended families (those
in which a person mar-
ries someone who has
children from a previ-
ous relationship).
Referring to a friend
anonymously, she
wrote, "Blended fami-
lies are never easy,
but here's why I don't


have a lot of sympa-
thy for your situation
because... we choose
them. When I married
Will, I knew Trey was
part of the package...
Period! If I didn't want
that...I needed to marry
someone else. Then I
learned if I am going
to love Trey...I had to
learn to love the most
important person in
the world to him...his
mother. And the two of
us may not have always
liked each other... but
we.have learned to love
each other. I can't sup-
port any actions that
keep a man from his
children of a previous
marriage. These are the
situations that separate
the women from the
girls. Your behavior is
that of an insecure child
who needs to recognize
her own weaknesses
that must be strength-
ened to take on the task
at hand. We can't say
we love our man and
then come in between
him and his children.
That's selfishness...not
love. Woman up... I've
been there...I know. My
blended family made
me a giant... Taught


me so much about love,
commitment and it has
been the biggest ego
death to date. It's time
you let your blended
family make you the gi-
ant you truly are."
When divorce rates
reach upward of 70
percent, the chances
of choosing a partner
who has children from a
previous relationship is
more likely than choos-
ing the cart at Walmart
with the janky wheel.
Regarding both situ-
ations, Pinkett's advice
shoots straight to the
heart of a time-worn
adage: character is de-
fined by what a person
does when no one is
looking. Self-account-
ability must be instilled
because every person
will answer for him/her-
self and no behind-the-
scenes puppet master
can pull enough strings
to appease a lack of con-
science.

It is this kind of in-
tegrity that strengthens
a family. As Confucius
wrote, "The strength of
a nation derives from
the integrity of the
home."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 11,2013


As residents of Walton County, we know what
all this wonderful county has to offer for not only
locals, but for the hundreds of thousands of tourists
that make their way to the coast every year. Maybe
DeFuniak Springs, the county seat and most his-
toric town in the county, will take advantage of its
history.


In last week's arts and
entertainment column, we
discussed the ins and outs
of Walton County. With
most agreeing, the tourists
come for the sun and sand,
and the lifestyle that the
beach can give them.
But to my surprise, I
had several phone calls
that should have been
(and were) directed to De-
Funiak Springs City Hall
and the elected officials. I
was given several ideas by
those who have been resi-
dents all their lives, and
suggestions from those
who have just recently
begun to call DeFuniak
Springs and Walton Coun-
ty home.
With any tourist desti-
nation, if you want to get
the tourists, those who
just wander in, and those
who plan their trip to a
certain destination, the
support must come from
the city and county gov-
ernment, by means of an
annual tourist budget. As
discussed in last week's
article, the South Walton
TDC has never promoted,
helped, supported, or even
marketed anything, or any
place of interest, above the
bay.
There are several ways
that this can be accom-
plished. These are this
writer's and other inter-
ested parties' thoughts,
that are being suggested.
They have been written
in hopes that they might
be seen and possibly used
by our elected officials, for
trying to get DeFuniak
Springs back on the tour-
ism map.
Lake DeFuniak: known
for being the world's liatu-
ral second-most perfectly
round lake, it has selling
points like no other place
in the country. It has been
praised as a natural won-


der, but how many outside
this area know about it?
Suggestion: mass ad-
vertising that would in-
clude a reoccurring media
blitz campaign, inviting
travel writers to stay in
DeFuniak and do inter-
views and articles on its
history and importance
to the city, and one thing
that you will see often in
this article billboards,
billboards, billboards.
Historical tours/sites:
Cities and towns such as
Savannah, Eufaula,. and
St. Augustine, all have
one thing in common.
"They know what they
have, and they let every-
one else know about it!"
These cities might have
taken an active part in
the Civil War, and other
southern confrontations,
unlike DeFuniak, but this
city has plenty of history
itself, that would have the
tourists swarming the city.
From the Victorian homes
around the lake with their
amazing architecture
and landscaping, and the
state's oldest, still-utilized
public library, to the train
depot and the once mag-
nificent Chautauqua Hall
of Brotherhood, there is
plenty to see, learn and
experience.
Suggestion: these plac-
es of interest, like public
buildings owned by the
city, need to be exploited.
From magazine stories
and paid advertising like
any southern publica-
tions such as Southern
Living and Florida Trend
Magazine, to daily tours
that are open even on the
weekend, and led by city-
paid tour guides. We might
not have the white sands
of the coastline, but we
have oak-covered streets,
coupled with down home
southern charm, accented


by a landscape that takes
visitors and residents
back to the days before cell
phones and GPS trackers
in our vehicles. Believe
it or not, the latest trend
in vacationing, according
to the AARP, is nostalgia
tours.
Sports/recreation: If
you have ever taken the
short drive going any di-
rection outside of the De-
Funiak Springs city limits,
then you might have seen
some of the 'many beauti-
ful and pristine lakes and
ponds that dot our county's
landscape. Some of these
do more than just leave a
dot, they are a resort that
have thousands annually
making their way to stay.
Many of these RV resorts
are actually self-contained
and inclusive, and once the
guests arrive for a week's
stay, they never pull out
of the property. From
Olympic-size pools, and
the latest, state-of-the-art
hook -ups, to dining halls,
gift shops, boat rentals,
and activity centers, some
of these locations are like
Disney for those who bring'
their beds with them.
Suggestion: Get the
publications and press
down here once again!
From Field & Stream
magazine, to the AARP
monthly multi-million copy
newsletter, there are plac-
es that appeal to a certain
demographic and our city
could financially thrive if
they only had the press to
intrigue them. There is no
reason why there should
not be a film team filming
the big bass being brought
up in King Lake, or an
RV line streaming back
20 miles, all making their
way to one of, the many RV
resorts in and around De-
Funiak. *'
Cultural events/crowd
draws: moving on to the
cultural aspects and at-
tributes of this area, the
Florida Chautauqua As-
sembly has for years been
the only means of drawing
any type of tourist into
the city, during the usu-
ally cool and wet months
of January and' February.
The hundreds that make
their way to the assembly
are history buffs, seeking
to learn more about the
South's assembly, our way
of life and the history of
our city and county. Still,
there is so much more that
can be done to draw in oth-
ers of different ages.
Suggestion: There are


plans being made now,
to begin a turn-around
for DeFuniak -Springs,
but there is always room
for improvement, and
more activities. Festivals
around Lake DeFuniak
Springs capped off with
entertainment from an ac-
tual Grammy Award-win-
ning performer, and art
shows that spotlight and
highlight local, national
and international artists
would draw those with
artistic passion into their
vacation plans to be in this
area. With the landscape,
and surprising amount of
hotels and motels in the
city limits, a festival could
be just what this area
needs to be catapulted
back into the limelight.
Either with a concert, an
art show, a weekend-long
music festival, or bringing
the stages of Broadway to
the stages of DeFuniak
Springs, there is an end-
less array of ideas that
not only will get heads in
beds, but restore a sense
of artistic culture and flair
that this community was
once known for during the
early part of the century.
Advertising/publicity:
You have always heard,
"you have to spend money
to make money!" well that
is true in advertising and
marketing, as well.
Throughout this arti-
cle, I have harped on the
importance of advertising
and marketing campaigns
necessary to bring in the
tourist dollars. It is a prov-
en fact that without adver-
tising in other parts of the
country, people will drive
right straight through
town, make it a one-time
visit, or forget the city's
name all together! That
is something that no busi-
ness, city, or tourist desti-
nation, ever wants to hap-
pen.
Advertising needs to
be done in three ways.
Since many of the inland
towns in Florida did not
receive a lot (if any) of BP
oil spill money, they are
fiscally strapped and can-
not afford to do advertis-
ing campaigns on national
television. However there
is a widely-used method of
getting what you need, by
simply using the bartering
system. Many in the me-
dia simply trade-out space
on their city or business
website, or blog, and ad-
vertise for that television
station or cable company.
There is now advertis-

ing for both parties in-
volved, and two purposes
have been served. But the
marketing campaign ball
doesn't need to stop rolling
yet.
It is now time to pull in
travel writers to cover a
special event, an histori-
cal site, or just take a tour.
This is a great way to en-
tertain three or four writ-
ers from various newspa-
pers and travel magazine/
shows, all at one time.
Wining and dining
them at local restaurants
and establishments and
putting them up in a cozy
hotel will keep their inter-
est and their pens moving
as they discover every as-
pect of DeFuniak Springs.
When the writers, produc-
ers, or scouts leave, you
want them to take with
them a sense of hospitality
and charm, with a splash
of big city sophistication
and small town historical
enthusiasm.
But if you can't get the
travel writers to come
down, or the A & E Chan-
nel to do a murder mys-
tery story in our commu-
nity, then city officials and
managers, take the money
you spent on the highways
"tree and shrub gardens,"
and put it towards bill-
boards! A billboard in a
tourist area, is worth a
million dollars.
When using billboards,
a small message and pic-
ture on a big billboard is
usually all the advertise-
ment needed to draw in
the crowds, spotlight local
events such as the Chau-
tauqua Assembly, Christ-
mas Reflections, Grit &
Grace, the annual Heri-
tage Fair, and many other
events that call DeFuniak
Springs home. Invest in

billboards on an annual
basis, and information and
marketing for DeFuniak
Springs history and hap-
penings will simply mar-
ket itself.
Suggestions for bill-
boards have been on U.S.
331 S., on U.S. 331 N.,
and at least two going
east and west on 1-10.
These three of four bill-
boards will cover all traf-
fic going in any direction,
within a 20-30 mile range
of DeFuniak Springs. If
you don't believe in their
marketing capability and
eye-catching appeal, just
travel east or west a short
distance and see the towns
and communities that are
already using billboards.
As the new elections
bring about changes in
the political landscape of
DeFuniak, it is the hope of
this journalist and many,
many others, that they will
take a closer look at build-
ing a national advertising
campaign. Simply start
with a marketing budget,
and possibly someone to
market the city, like many
have suggested a North
Walton County TDC direc-
tor.

Without advertising
and marketing of our local
area and events, and with-
out the task of bringing
new tourists in each year,
DeFuniak Springs will
continue to see the tourist
traffic head south on U.S.
331. And if you are in pure
disagreement with seeing
the city flourish and grow,
and jobs begin to pull in a
workforce that is so vital,
then please do not com-
plain when your children
and grandchildren have
no desire to live here, or
even return to visit! ir,

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, APRIL 11,2013


ecutive director for the
Choctawhatchee Basin
Alliance (CBA). The al-
liance was created in
1996 as a partnership
effort of citizens, busi-
ness people, North-
west Florida State Col-
lege (NWFSC), state
and federal regulatory
agencies, and environ-
mental organizations.
Its mission is to sustain
the Choctawhatchee
Basin watershed and
provide for its optimum
use. The organization
is headquartered at
the Northwest Florida
State College South
Walton Center in Santa
Rosa Beach.
Terrell explained
that the CBA offers op-
portunities for citizens,
educators and technical
people to help promote
the health of the Choc-
tawhatchee Basin. The
organization's philoso-
phy is that it is possible
to use the watershed
for recreational activi-
ties and still keep it
healthy.
The CBA has four
paid staff members,
Terrell told the group,
and gets much assis-
tance from the college
and from citizen volun-
teers. The CBA is en-
gaged in water quality
monitoring, restoration
projects, education, and
research.
Water quality moni-
toring was the first ac-
tivity undertaken by
the CBA. Volunteers
take samples at more
than 100 stations per
month on bayous in
'Santa Rosa Beach and
Freeport, in the coastal
dune lakes, and also in
Niceville, Destin, and
Fort Walton Beach.
Annual seagrass sur-
veys are also conducted
throughout the Choc-
tawhatchee Bay.
Restoration projects
focus on management
of shorelines, reduction
of excessive nutrients
and sedimentation, im-
provement of water hab-
itat through oyster reef
construction, reduction


of pollution sources,
control of invasive plant
species, and enhance-
ment of native plant
communities. Among
CBA project sites are
Cessna Park in Santa
Rosa Beach, south Wal-
ton County's coastal
dune lakes, Clement
Taylor Park in Destin,
Liza Jackson Park in
Fort Walton Beach, and
Mattie Kelly Park on
Joe's Bayou in Destin.
The CBA works with
schools in Walton and
Okaloosa counties to in-
volve children in grades
K through 12 with
hands-on environmen-
tal education activities
that contribute to the
restoration of the wa-
tershed. One example is
the Grasses-in-Classes
program, in which the
CBA provides students
with equipment and
materials to raise shore-
grasses in plant nurs-
eries at their schools.
Then,' the CBA and
partner organizations
assist the students in
planting those grasses
in areas where they are
needed to guard against
erosion.
Other educational ef-
forts of the CBA include
public workshops and
restoration and clean-
up projects.
The CBA also assists
universities and gov-
ernment agencies with
research projects that
add to knowledge about
the natural resources
of the Choctawhatchee
Basin.
"The bay system has
sustained our economy,"
Terrell pointed out.
"The BP oil spill
showed us we are all
impacted by water qual-
ity;" she said, "it means
our quality of life."
She invited attend-
ees to join the CBA and
participate in CBA ac-
tivities and projects as
volunteers. Donations
are also welcomed, she
said, as water sampling
equipment costs about
$6,000 per unit and
lasts only three years.

Old jon boats are need,
as well, for water sam-
pling, Terrell comment-
ed.
Choctawhatchee
Riverkeeper Michael
Mullen serves as an
advocate for the protec-
tion and restoration of
the health of the river,
its tributaries and wa-
tershed. He and more
than 200 other keepers
of waterways make up
the Waterkeeper Alli-
ance, a worldwide advo-
cacy organization.
Mullen explained
that the riverkeeper
concept had its origin
in England, with mon-
archs charging keepers
with the task of protect-
ing important fisheries.
In the United States,
the riverkeeper move-
ment started in 1966
in New York, when
commercial and recre-
ational fisherman unit-
ed to save the Hudson
River, whose fisheries
were being threatened
by industrial pollution.
America got its first of-
ficial riverkeeper, the
Hudson Riverkeeper, in
1983.
"We do science, but
we add advocacy to the
science," said Mullen,
who holds a baccalaure-
ate degree with a double
major in chemistry and
biology from Athens
College, a master's de-
gree in Chemistry from
the University of Ar-
kansas, and a master's
degree in biology from
the University of Ala-
bama in Huntsville. He
also has a certificate in
watershed management
from the University of
British Columbia. Mul-
len is a Certified Profes-
sional in Erosion and
Sediment Control.
The Choctawhatchee
Riverkeeper (CRK) is
based in Banks, Ala0.
"We are willing to
mix it up with the pol-
luters," Mullen told the
group.
He asserted that the
waterways belong to
the public and that no
one has the right to pol-
lute those resources.
"We have gotten al-
most all of the Choc-
tawhatchee River in Al-
abama reclassified for
swimming use," Mullen
revealed. "Under the
Clean Water Act, prior
uses must be defended,"
he explained.
Mullen described the
Choctawhatchee River
system as a diverse one
with many threats fac-
ing it. Among those,
he enumerated, are a
lack of public aware-
ness, lack of pollution
control, poor riparian
management, excessive
sedimentation, exces-
sive nutrient loading,
lack of comprehension
of watershed manage-
ment, proposed reser-
voirs, climate change,
and mercury pollution.
Poor livestock man-
agement in the water-
shed is an important
source of pollution, Mul-
len noted, and drought
is a very serious issue.
Among the successes
achieved by the Choc-
tawhatcheeRiverkeeper
are an online complaint
system for citizens who
notice problems in the

Covenant Hospice

offers free living

wills April 16


Covenant Hospice
along with other na-
tional, state and com-
munity organizations,
is leading a massive
effort to highlight the
importance of advance
healthcare decision-
making-an effort that
has culminated in the
formal designation of
April 16 as National
Healthcare Decisions
Day (NHDD). As a par-
ticipating organization,
Covenant Hospice is
providing information
Sand tools for the pub-
lic to talk about their
wishes with family,
friends and healthcare
providers, and execute
written advance direc-
tives, or living wills in
accordance with state
laws. To receive a free
copy of Five Wishes, an
easy to use living will,
contact the local Cov-
enant Hospice branch
(850) 682-3628, or go to
www.agingwithdignity.
org.
Fewer families and
healthcare providers
will have to struggle


with making difficult
healthcare decisions
in the absence of guid-
ance from the patient,
and healthcare provid-
ers and facilities will be
better equipped to ad-
dress advance health-
care planning issues
before a crisis and be
better able to honor pa-
tient wishes when the
time comes.

Healthcare Decision
Day, visit www.nation-

South Walton High School's National

Honor Society inducts new members


Recently, South
Walton High School
(SWHS) held its 2012-
2013 National Honor
Society induction cere-
mony. During the open
enrollment, 19 students
with a GPA of at least
3.5 joined. Four main
purposes have guided
this chapter of NHS:
"To create enthusi-
asm for scholarship, to
stimulate a desire to
render service, to pro-
mote leadership, and to
develop character in the
students of secondary
schools." (from the NHS
Constitution) These
purposes also translate
into the criteria used for
membership selection
in SWHS's chapter.


The National Honor
Society (NHS) and Na-
tional Junior Honor
Society (NJHS) are the
nation's premier orga-
nizations established to
recognize outstanding
high school and middle
level students. More
than just an honor roll,
NHS and NJHS serve
to honor those students
who have demonstrated
excellence in the area
of Scholarship, Lead-
ership, Service, and
Character (and Citizen-
ship for NJHS). These
characteristics have
been associated with
membership in the or-
ganization since their
beginnings in 1921 and
1929.


Today, it is esti-
mated that more than
1 million students, par-
ticipate in activities of
the NHS and NJHS.
NHS and NJHS chap-
ters are found in all 50
states, the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico,
many U.S. Territories,
and Canada. Chapter
membership not only
recognizes students for
their accomplishments,
but challenges them to
develop further through
active involvement in
school activities and
community service.

In 1921, NASSP of-
ficially established the
National Honor Society.
Though many local and


regional honor societies
existed prior to 1921, no
nationwide organiza-
tion had been founded.
Under the leadership of
Dr. Edward Rynearson,
principal of the Fifth Av-
enue High School, Pitts-
burgh, the organization
grew from the original

Sacred Heart named one of


the nation's 100 Top Hospitals


Sacred Heart Hos-
pital on the Emerald
Coast has been named
one of the nation's 100
Top Hospitals by Tru-
ven Health Analytics
for the third time since
opening in 2003. Tru-
ven Health Analytics,
formerly Thomson Reu-
ters, is a leading provid-
er of information and
solutions to improve
the cost and quality of
healthcare.
The Truven Health
100 Top Hospitals
study evaluates perfor-
mance in 10 areas: mor-
tality; medical compli-
cations; patient safety;
average patient stay;
expenses; profitabil-
ity; patient satisfaction;
adherence to clinical
standards of care; post-
discharge mortality;
and readmission rates
for acute myocardial
infarction (heart at-
tack), heart failure, and
pneumonia. The study
is celebrating its 20th
year, and has been con-
ducted annually since
1993. Sacred Heart was
also recognized as one
of the top 100 hospitals


in 2012 and 2008.
"It is an incredible
accomplishment to be
recognized as one of the
100 Top Hospitals in the
nation for the third time
during our 10th Anni-
versary year," said Rog-
er Hall, president of Sa-
cred Heart Hospital on
the Emerald Coast. "We
thank our associates,
medical staff, Board of
Trustees, volunteers,
our community and the
entire Sacred Heart
Health System for their
dedication, vision, and
support to make this
another successful step
in our healthcare jour-
ney."
To conduct the 100
Top Hospitals study,
Truven Health re-
searchers evaluated
2,922 short-term, acute
care, non-federal hospi-
tals. They used public
information Medi-
care cost reports, Medi-
care Provider Analysis
and Review (MedPAR)
data? and core measures
and patient satisfaction
data from the Centers
for Medicare and Med-
icaid Services (CMS)


Hospital Compare web-
site. Hospitals do not
apply, and winners do
not pay to market this
honor.
The winning hospi-
tals were announced in
the February 25 edition
of Modern Healthcare
magazine.
"The winners of
the 100 Top Hospitals
award have driven the
national benchmarks
higher every year for 20
years. This year's win-
ners have brought even
higher value to their lo-
cal communities bet-
ter quality, higher effi-
ciency and high patient
perceptions of care,
while confronting the
challenges of massive
industry-wide transfor-
mation to implement
healthcare reform,"
said, Jean Chenoweth,
senior vice president at
Truven Health Analyt-
ics. "The key to suc-
cess in a tumultuous
environment is vision-
ary leadership that de-
velops and maintains
a hospital-wide culture
of excellence that cuts
across everything, from


patient care to house-
keeping to administra-
tion, and the refusal to
rest on laurels when it
comes to adopting new
technologies and tech-
niques. I congratulate
this year's winners for
their persistent drive
for excellence."
If all Medicare inpa-
tients received the same
level of care as those
treated in the award-
winning facilities:
More than 164,000
additional lives could
be saved.
Appro ximate 1 y
82,000 additional pa-
tients could be compli-
cation free.
A total of $6 billion
could be saved.
The average patient
stay would decrease by
nearly half a day.

If the same stan-
dards were applied
to all inpatients, the
impact would be even
greater. More informa-
tion on this study and
other 100 Top Hospitals
research is available at

TOWN HALL


delays (particularly at
"checkout time") at this
intersection. County
Public Works Division
engineer Greg Graham
showed the audience
projected pictures of
two alternatives under
consideration: install
traffic lights or install
a roundabout. At the
present, either option
would provide turn
lanes to help route traf-
fic going north on CR-
395 and either would
move the southernmost
lane several feet to the
north of its present lo-
cation to accommodate
parking for homeown-
ers south and east of
the intersection. Some
in the audience did not
like this accommoda-
tion. In any event, ei-
ther alternative will
impact parking near
the intersection.
Comander voiced the
opinion that she does
not like roundabouts
and this theme was
picked up by members
of the audience. Some
said that the round-
about would not work
because at peak traffic
flow times one lane of
traffic could dominate
the intersection, ef-
fectively closing it to


traffic in other lanes.
The general consensus
seemed to be that the
traffic light option was
the best choice.
The audience was
also critical of the plan
to route the bicycle path
along the north side of
CR-30A because that
option put bicyclists
in greater exposure to
traffic and this inter-
fered with traffic flow
and presented a height-
ened safety problem for
the bicyclists.
Questions about the
status of the county
administrator arose.
Comander said that
the matter would be
discussed at the BCC
meeting on April 9. The
choices seem to be: re-
start the search from
the beginning; or go out
and hire a "head hunter"
to find a replacement; or
keep Gerry Demers in
the job and go out and
hire a new assistant
county administrator.
Comander said that
to her knowledge, for-
mer County Adminis-
trator Bob Halfhill was
not asked to resign from
the county administra-
tor's position. She be-
lieved Halfhill's family
may have been disap-

pointed about living in
Walton County and this
may have been part of
the reason for the resig-
nation.
Bob Hudson, chair of
the South Walton Coun-
ty Mosquito Control
district expressed the
desire to see the county
hire a professional ad-
ministrator with the
track record and the
ability to take over
management and get
problems under control.
He cited turnover in the
Public Works Division,
the current need to find
a new leader for TDC
and he said that county
employees are saying,
"...we need stability in
Walton County."
Representative from
the Frangista Beach
Home Owners Associa-
tion reported that large
houses around that de-
velopment were in ef-
fect hotels and event
houses. He said, "They
are a plague because
of the crowds and the
parking problems." He
asked for better control
to deal with the event
house problem, but not
control to the degree
that it would be detri-
mental to regular rent-
als. Comander said that


Commissioner Cindy
Meadows planned to
bring up the subject of
occupational licenses
and that this could be a
route to control undesir-
able renting and adver-
tising practices. The oc-
cupational licenses are
in place in DeFuniak
Springs and in Freeport
and they are also highly
desired by the South
Walton Fire District.
Code violations would
result in loss of license
which would help con-
trol the situation.
It was. reported
that Seaside has put
up three lights on the
beach in violation of
the lighting ordinance.
Code enforcement is
not enforcing the ordi-
nance at this spot and
so the lights are on at
night. The justification
for putting up the lights
is understood to be to
control undesirable con-
duct on the beaches, but
these lights certainly
are detrimental to the
turtle nesting program.

Comander expressed
her feelings that the
"rumor mill" has been
crossing over the line
and that it should be
brought under control.

sity in political science,
Hayward moved to New
York City, working for
AT&T and the Financial
Times. He and his wife
An returned to Pensa-
cola in 2003, starting
a real estate company
that they ran until he
took office as mayor.
Hayward said that
upon returning from
New York to his home
town, he found Pensaco-
la to be much the same
as when he had left the
city, with "untouched
potential."
He explained that,
for the past 75 years,
Pensacola had operated
with a city council/man-
ager government that
lacked vision, account-
ability and leadership.
Enthusiastic about the
city's decision to change
its form of government,
Hayward had decided
to run for mayor and
was elected.
As mayor, he super-
vises a staff of 800 and
oversees a budget of
more than $200 million.
Hayward does not vote
on city council decisions
but does have veto pow-
er over those decisions.
As top priorities, he
identified jobs, improv-
ing neighborhoods,
restoring trust in gov-
ernment, and resolving
lingering issues.
On' of the biggest
challenges facing Hay-
ward as mayor was the
city's $100 million un-
funded pension liability.
Annual pension costs to
the city had increased
five-fold over the past
decade, to more than
$16 million, exceeding


the $13 million in ad
valorem taxes taken in
yearly by the city.
Hayward explained
that a pension commit-
tee had been created to
negotiate with unions
in order to "get the city
out of the pension busi-
ness." Agreements with
unions representing
city employees and the
police department were
accomplished which are
expected to reduce the
city's unfunded pension
liability by as much as
$15 million. Hayward
explained that exist-
ing pensions would be
honored---but that pen-
sion programs had been
closed to new employees
in conjunction with the
agreements. Instead,
per the agreement, new
employees are being en-
rolled in the Florida Re-
tirement System.
In addition, Hayward
announced that he had
been successful in get-
ting the size of city gov-
ernment reduced and
property taxes lowered
by 5.5 percent.
He was proud of a
partnership between
Pensacola and Escam-
bia County to convert
city and county vehicles
to natural gas power,
an initiative that had
made sense to Hayward
since the city owns and
operates a natural gas
company. As part of that
effort, he explained, two
natural gas fueling sta-
tions have been put in
place, with another one
on the way, and more
than 150 vehicles are
now natural gas pow-
ered.


A new community
maritime park is also
under development on
the city's waterfront,
featuring a stadium,
amphitheater, exhib-
it space, and festival
grounds.
Hayward reported an
outstanding response,
more than 6,500 attend-
ees, at a March 11 com-
munity career day that
had been a partnership
between the city and
local employers. Also,
on the jobs front, the
expansion of the Navy
Federal Credit Union
in Pensacola was an-
nounced on April 4 by
Florida Governor Rick
Scott. The expansion is
expected to create more
than 1,500 jobs in the
area.
Although he is a
Republican, Hayward
noted that the mayor's
position is a nonparti-
san one. To accomplish
his goals, he said he
must be able to work
across party lines. "We
have the responsibility
to put the public above
the party," he told at-
tendees. -
"We should think re-
gionally," Hayward as-
serted, explaining that
partnerships across the
region should be sup-
ported.
Turning to some
pundits' predictions
and reports of the de-
mise of the Republican
Party, Hayward begged
to differ. He viewed the
GOP as "brimming with
new ideas" and "full of
diverse voices" with
new leaders now on the
scene such as Marco


Rubio, Mia Love, and
Bobby Jindal.
He saw the future
of the party as one of
"statesmanship, collab-
oration and civility."
It is not necessary
for party members to
compromise their prin-
ciples, he commented,
but he declared, "We
have to modernize."
Hayward called for
the application of GOP
principles to "new solu-
tions."
, "We are a party of
common-sense solu-
tions," he observed.
Hayward urged for
Republicans to take on
the challenge of work-
ing together with people
with ideas and beliefs
different from their
own in order to accom-
plish common goals. If
some of those people's
views are different,
"who cares!" was his at-
titude.
"The person who
agrees with you 80
percent of the time is
a friend and an ally,"
Hayward said, quoting
Ronald Reagan.
Hayward completed
his remarks by stating
his belief in personal
freedom and individual
responsibility, in Amer-
ican free enterprise as
the' solution, not the
problem, and in the
United States as the
greatest nation ever,
where anything is pos-
sible.
The next meeting
of the 30A Republican
Club is scheduled for
June 6. Additional de-
tails will be forthcom-
ing.
