DFS City Council tables talks on




employee hiring and firing process


By REID TUCKER
The DeFuniak
Springs City Council
was primed to discuss
the ordinance, passed
about a year ago, that
requires all prospective
city employee hires and
eliminations to come
before the board.
However, a consen-


sus was reached be-
tween the councilmen
at the Sept. 9 regular
meeting to defer dis-
cussion until next time,
when Councilman Kert
mit Wright, who did not
attend due to recovery
from surgery, is expect-
ed to be present. Coun-
cilman Mac Carpenter


proposed rescinding the
ordinance in question,
which amended the re-
sponsibilities of the city
manager such that all
hires were subject to
Council approval, fol-
lowing the last regular
meeting in August.
While the original in-
tention of this ordinance


was to make the hiring
process more transpar-
ent, Carpenter argued
that the process was
unnecessary, given the
confidence the Council
has in the city manager,
assistant city manager,
chief of police and other
department heads. Fur-
thermore, Carpenter


said the city could be
"jumping off into some
deep labor law water" if
it continued the policy of
making disciplinary ac-
tions resulting in termi-
nations or suspensions

cil, and consequently a

WCSB picks full size football



practice field for WMS


By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board (WCSB)
met on Sept. 3 at 5 p.m.
for a regularly sched-
uled meeting.
The opening agenda
was approved 5-0 by the
board and with no pub-
lic comments forthcom-
ing, the board moved on
to the consent agenda
portion of the meeting.
Under consent agen-
da items, the board ap-
proved unanimously
-multiple trips for school
athletic meets. WCSB
member Faye Leddon
mentioned she would
like to see students at
Paxton High School
have facilities to have
track meets at their
school, rather than
travel long distances.
The board moved on
to the action agenda
portion of the meeting,
passing personnel rec-
ommendations, agree-
ments and contracts as
well as school curricu-
lum/improvement plans
unanimously.
Next, the board
tackled facilities and
construction quanda-
ries concerning Walton
Middle School athletic
field designs.and proj-
S i


ects. The board ap-
proved the schematic
design request that did
not include the athletic
fields portion of the de-
sign, with board mem-
ber Sharon Roberts be-
ing the dissenting vote,
reiterating a comment
from prior meetings
that she believed build-
ing a second _story for
some buildings would
be a better plan rather
than the campds being
a single story structure
with limited expansion
possibilities.
Under the athletic
fields segment of plans,
an additional option
with a full size prac-
tice football field with
optional amenities was
added. Walton County
School Superintendent
Carlene Anderson rec-
ommended option one,
which is a half-size prac-
tice football field, with
an eye towards funding
projects in Freeport and
south Walton press-
ing the district due to
expanding population
base in those areas.

sued over whether there
were budget allowances

ect costs ran lower than

By DOTTY NIST
Among the recom-
mended findings of a
recently-completed in-
vesigation was that no
basis exists for Walton
County to impose dis-
ciplinary action against
Robert* Halfhill, who
served as county ad-
ministrator from March
1 until April 3. The in-
vestigation report, pre-
pared by the Warner
Law Firm, also states
that "it appears that
a good-faith basis ex-
isted" for complainants,
four women working for
Walton County, to bring
their concerns about
Halfhill to the attention
of the county.
Halfhill submitted
his resignation on April
2 after being notified
by county legal counsel
that harassment alle-
gations had been made
against him and that
an investigation into


the allegations would
be conducted, according
to the report. Halfhill's
resignation letter had
cited health problems
in his family as his rea-
son for departure.
Initiated on April 4
at the request of Mark
Davis, interim county
attorney (now county
attorney), the investi-
gation was concluded
on Sept. 5 with the sub-
mission of the report,
62 pages in length, to
the county. The Herald/
Breeze obtained a copy
of the report through a
public records request.
While recommended
findings of fact are pro-
vided, the report notes
that it is the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners which
is the proper authority
to make an ultimate de-
termination in the mat-
ter.
According to the re-


port, no written com-
plaints were initially
provided to the inves-
tigator. The names of
four women who had
made verbal complaints
regarding Halfhill were
provided. In the course
of the investigation,
interviews were con-
ducted with 16 county
staff members, three
county commissioners,
and Halfhill, and sworn
statements were also
obtained from these
people.
The report indicated
"factual disputes" in
connection with some of
the allegations, among
'those that the former
administrator made a
sexual comment to a
female employee under
his supervision, looked
down the blouses of fe-
male employees, and
told "blonde jokes" to a
female employee.
According to the re-


port, hostile workplace
complaints were made
by some interviewees.
As undisputed, ei-
ther by Halfhill, the
complainants or wit-
nesses, the report listed
a conversation between
Halfhill and a female
employee under his su-
pervision in which he
referenced critical com-
ments to her the previ-
ous day on the topic of
smoking and apologized
because those com-
ments could have been
perceived as harassing.
Among other allega-
tions categorized as un-
disputed were remarks
made by Halfhill to
county staff stating that
he had returned home
one day and found his
wife in their dog cage.
When interviewed,
Halfhill confirmed the
remarks, explaining
that his wife had joked
that the dog kennel


was "her new house"
and that he had related
the story because he
thought it was funny
and as an attempt to fit
in with employees.
In the interview with
Halfhill, the report in-
dicated,, he repeatedly
"stated that he did not
'consciously' or 'inten-
tionally' engage in any
inappropriate actions
or conversations." How-
ever among the report's
recommended find-
ings is ,that portions
of a sworn, statement
by Halfhill'"leave the
door open to0,the inter-
pretatiobi that Halfhill
'unconsciously' or 'un-
intentionally' engaged
in activity which could
have been perceived by
a reasonably objective
person as constituting
harassment or sexual
harassment."

Freeport motorist

seriously injured on SR-20


The Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) reported
that Devin MacDonald,
21, of Freeport, was se-
riously injured in an ac-
cident that took place
on SR-20 at Sycamore
Drive on the afternoon
of Sept. 8. The report
stated that MacDonald
was traveling east on


SR-20, negotiating a
curve left. His vehicle
failed to negotiate the,
curve and left the road
to the right. It entered
the south grass shoulder
and struck a guardrail,
crossed over both lanes,
and entered the north
grass shoulder, rotated,
then overturned.


. MacDonald was
transported, to Sacred
Heart of Pensacola with
serious injuries. There
were no other persons
or vehicles involved:
MacDonald was report-
edly not wearing a seat-
belt. An investigation is
pending to- determine
whether or not alcohol
had been a factor.

sports memorabilia, as well as accepting donations for the cause. The restau-
rant was able to meet and exceed their goal of raising over $1,000 for injured
veterans.

Walton County Fire
Rescue, has taken deliv-
ery of a fire engine from
Pierce Manufacturing
of Bradenton, Fla. The
engine is a Pierce Sa-
ber Pumper that was
manufactured in 2011
as a demonstrator of
the Pierce fleet. The
fact that the pumper
was a demonstrator al-
lowed' Walton County
to purchase the vehicle
'at a reduced rate while
still maintaining the
benefits of a new truck
warranty.
The pumper was pur-
chased to replace an en-
gine that was involved
in a high speed crash on
the Interstate and will
be placed into service to
continue response to the
Interstate system along
with service to the citi-
zens of Walton County.
."Being that our previ-
ous pumper was struck
from behind in an inci-
dent beyond the control
of Fire Rescue has made
us take a hard look at


the safety features that
will be incorporated
into every new pumper
and all of our existing
vehicles," said Walton
County Fire Rescue
Chief Brian Coley.
The new pumper
carries many safety
features the previous
pumper did not have,
such as steel bumpers
instead of chrome, en-
hanced emergency
lighting and enhanced
reflective tape instead
of more expensive dia-
mond tread aluminum.
Walton County has
made every attempt to
keep personnel safe,
while keeping cost to a
minimum.
The pumper also has
the capability to carry
heavier rescue and ex-
trication equipment
that Walton County has
in service, but was pre-
viously unable to carry
due to space limitations.
In the past, any inci-
dent requiring heavier
extrication equipment
required a long wait on


scene while that equip-
ment was mobilized and
allowed travel time to a
scene.
"The ability to carry
the heavier equipment
will translate into more
rapid extrications to
those persons trapped
in the wreckage of a
traffic accident," said
Coley. "Shorter extri-
cation times at traffic
crashes will translate
into higher survivabil-
ity rates of critically in-
jured patients."

The pumper will be
stationed at Walton
County Fire Rescue
Station 2 by mid-Sep-
tember and will be able
to respond to the Inter-
state as well as the U.S.
331 corridor south of
DeFuniak Springs. Wal-
ton County Fire Rescue
thanked the Board of
County Commissioners
for the opportunity to
place this critical piece
of equipment into ser-
vice for the public of
Walton County.


NEWLY ACQUIRED PUMPER has enhanced safety and rescue features.

FINDING CONTINUED


SStill, the report later
states that, since his
employment with the
county ended on April
3, "there is no basis for
Walton County to im-
pose disciplinary action
against Halfhill after
that date, even in the
event that (the) Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners were to
make a determination
that Halfhill did violate
existing County poli-
cies."
In addition, it is stat-
ed that the investigator
found no evidence of
any "collusion, plan or
scheme" by complain-
ants or witnesses in
connection with the al-
legations raised about
Halfhill.
The report notes,
"Regardless of whether
Halfhill's actions were
'intentional' or 'unin-
tentional,' 'conscious'
or 'subconscious,' based


upon the testimony re-
ceived during this in-
vestigation, it appears
that a good-faith basis
existed for the Com-
plainants to bring their
concerns about Halfhill
to the attention of Wal-
ton County."
The report revealed
that a number of coun-
ty employees had ex-.
pressed "concerns dur-
ing interviews that they
might face retaliation
as a result of their par-
ticipation in the inves-
tigation. The first rec-
ommendation offered
by the investigator was
that the county con-
sider issuing a letter to
the complainants and
witnesses emphasizing
that retaliatory action
against anyone who
provided information in
the course of the inves-
tigation is prohibited
and that any instance
of retaliation "should be

reported 'immediately
to the county attorney."
Among other recom-
mendations provided
as part of the report
were for the revision
of county policies con-
cerning "all aspects" of
discrimination, harass-
ment, and retaliation,
the addressing of appro-
priate protocol when an
alleged perpetrator of
discrimination, harass-
ment, sexual harass-
ment or retaliation is
in a position above that
of department direc-
tor, and the revision of
the county's grievance
procedures. There are
further recommenda-
tions for training of all
county commissioners
and county employees
in any newly-adopted
procedures and ongoing
training on the issues of

The Millage



People



By BRUCE COLLIER

The Walton County Board of County Commis-
sihoners (BCC) has held the first of two public hear-
ings on the county budget for the 2013-2014 fiscal
year. Herald Breeze reporter Dotty Nist attended
the meeting, along with much of the rest of the
county, apparently, and her account of what was
said and done can be found in this edition.
First of all, it's good to know that budget meet-
ings that rare combination of the Dull and the
Vital can draw people here. It's also good to know
that property values have gone up, isn't it? In'this
instance, by a reported $600 million in taxable val-
ue over that of the current year. The consequence
is that the county could get $2 million more in
ad valorem taxes without having to raise the ad
valorem rate. It's ironic that good news (higher
property value) comes with less-than-good (more
to pay). Fret not, though, because the county has
to pony up for state mandated increases in retire-
ment rates and Medicaid increases, an aggregate
of about $1,250,000. Increased revenue, we hardly
knew ye...... (
The meat of the meeting was when the attend-
ees got a load of the preliminary millage rate. It
was 4.1060 mills, 18.4-percent higher than the
rolled-back rate. And that, parliamentarily speak-
ing, was when the fertilizer hit the ventilator. Ac-
cording to Dotty's report, "Citizen comment at the
meeting was overwhelmingly against the millage
increase." I expect it was.
'There were no reported fights, of course, but by
the time the BCC came to vote, what they chose to
do (as moved by Sara Co.mander) was to keep the
millage rate at 3.5563 mills. Comander expressed
her hope that the economy will improve in the com-
ing year. Her motion passed, with Cindy Meadows
and Kenneth Pridgen joining her, and Bill Imfeld
and Bill Chapman opposing. Imfeld wanted to add
some maneuvering room and Chapman was con-
cerned about possible reductions in general fund
reserves. Both had good points.
I However, I think the motion approved was the
right move. That's not just because it reflected the
majority of opinion expressed by the attendees.
Sometimes the public is wrong, and elected offi-
ciAls have to be willing to weather disapproval and
do what they think best. Still,.between Comander's
expression of economic faith (I hear that prelimi-
nary tourist figures are encouraging, and I'm sure
Sara has heard the same thing), and Meadows'
un-rhetorical question about future unfunded
mandates ("Do we just keep upping the budget?"),
* there was common sense and prudence. The fact
that the vote was not unanimous indicates diver-
sity of opinion, which can lead to constructive com-
promise a rare bird, nearly extinct at the federal
level. Somewhere in the thick of all that there just
might live Good Government. Selah.

LETRTOTEEITOR


Editor:
Subject: America, Now is the time
1. America, now is the time to get our house in
order and get our priorities right. Let's remember
God created everything, controls everything and
never loses a battle. Do you want to be a winner
and go to heaven? Then get on God's path and quit
being'a sickly unbeliever without courage, moral-
ity and faith to follow God's Holy Spirit without
hesitation. These "self' on the throne person never
wants to do this and is blind, doubtful, fault find-
ing and headed straight to hell.
2. We're in a time we all have to depend on each
other or separately. As Ben Franklin said hang to-
gether. We have to encourage and hold each up. A
biblical example was Moses' arms being held up


in battle. Whenever his arms were allowed to fall
down he'd began to lose. We all have to depend on
each other in the end time latter days.
3. God has given everyone a measure of faith,
knowledge and experience. Gods wants us to share
this with all. God loves all and wants no one to go
to hell. Let us all pray, stay on the fighting front
line, follow God and His Holy Spirit's prompting.
Jesus is our real father and commander. All who
accept Jesus as their Lord and savior will receive a
just 'heavenly reward and position for eternity and
for every good deed done in the flesh while here on
earth. After death our status. with God cannot be
changed. .
4. Let's pray for everyone for divine guidance,
protection and favor. .
S' Sincerely,
S William B Webster

Editor:
The Northwest Florida Daily News reports that
the problem with the collapsed section of County
Road 30A will be fixed sooner than previously
thought. Louis Svehla, Walton County Public In-
formation Manager stated that although the coun-
ty is still investigating a permanent solution to the
problem, (a culvert which simply could not handle
the volume of runoff from the costal lakes due to
the recent heavy rains), a temporary repair will be
implemented. This quick fix, a bag of Quickcrete
and a 4x8 ,sheet of plywood, will allow traffic to
once again flow relieving motorists of the nuisance
of a hastily devised detour. It is hinted in the ar-
ticle that we have Mike Huckabee to thank for this
fast and efficient repair. The word on the street
is that Mr. Huckabee, local celebrity and peren-
nial candidate for president, was unable to get to
his favorite restaurant, so he called up the powers
that be and asked them if this was any way to run
a tourist destination, and BINGO; Mike's sitting
down to a plate of oysters with side of fries. Let's
hire Mr. Huckabee as a liaison between the tax-
payers and the local governmental officials, heck


Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission an-
nounced four additional license-free` fishing
days. Governor Scott said, "Florida's license-free
fishing days are the perfect opportunity for people
to try, or introduce a friend to, some of the finest
fishing in the world. Florida's recreational fresh-
water and saltwater fishing industry has an $8.9
billion economic impact and events like these help
grow the industry even more. I'm excited that the
FWC has adopted four more license-free fishing
days for a total of eight days per year. These days
are a great way to introduce more Floridians to the
lifetime sport of fishing."
Florida currently offers the public four license-
free fishing days per year, where the requirement
to have a recreational fishing license is waived for
residents and'visitors. Saltwater license-free fish-
ing days this year'were on June 1 and Sept. 1 and
freshwater's were April 6 and June 8.
During its Sept. 5 meeting, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) added
four more license-free fishing days to the calendar,
and the Florida Legislature approved this increase
earlier this year.
SThe additional saltwater license-free fishing
days will be Oct. 12 and Nov. 30 and additional
freshwater license-free days will be Nov. 29 and
Dec. 28.
The Commission also set dates for 2014 and be-
yond. All eight days will now fall on the same day
of the week from year to year, allowing potential
anglers to plan fishing trips in advance.
For 2014 and beyond, the following dates will be
license-free fishing days:

he's got nothing to do for a couple of years. Maybe
he can figure out exactly what all those well paid
county employees are doing. It's getting so the only
people who have a full time job with benefits are
those citizens fortunate enough to be employed by
either federal or local government. The aspect of
this that is most disturbing is the .mindset that
anything that comes from the federal government
is free money. The Labor Day parade around the
Circle stands as testimony to government -waste.
I .would estimate that there was close to 30 mil-
lion dollars' worth of fire trucks on parade that
day, all of it paid for with federal money. Gone are
the days of the volunteer firefighters having a bake
sale to buy equipment. It's not. the firefighters or
the police or the road crews or the elected officials
that are to blame; it is 'the entrenched notion in.
this country that somehow the government owes
us all a living. It's time to think about just where
that money comes from. ,

S First Saturday and Sundayin April
S Second Saturday and Sunday in June
To make these events accessible to as many
people as possible, the FWC planned these dates
around holiday weekends and national events and
National Fishing and Boating Week. Highlighted
by significant national' media coverage and public
events, National Fishing and Boating Week pro-
motes boating and fishing across the country as
fun and healthy outdoor activities.
Plan your fishing experience today, but don't
forget, all other regulations such as seasons, size
limits and bag limits still apply on these days. Visit ,
MyFWC.com/Fishing to learn more about saltwa-
ter and freshwater fishing in Florida. From FWC
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach, has
filed a bill (HB 4005) that would repeal a fire-
works ban inthe state. Gaetz told the Panama City
News Herald that Floridians are already buying
fireworks online or bringing fireworks back from
other states. "We're pushing, economic activity
out of our state with a regulation that's relatively
meaningless because people get fireworks else-
where and just bring them down and shoot them
off here," Gaetz told the News Herald. "We'd rath-
er keep those dollars in Florida." State law limits
sales to relatively innocuous devices such as spar-
klers, while banning sales of such things as bottle
rockets. But a loophole also has allowed the sale of
fireworks to people who sign a statement saying
they have an exemption to the law. Gaetz told the
News Herald that the idea for the bill came from
a Marianna High School student, who said it was
silly for people to cross state lines to buy fireworks
and then bring them back to Florida. From News
Service of Florida

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,2013


Each year, as an
English teacher, I ask
students to compose a
manifesto-a personal
declaration of aims and
beliefs regarding life.
Inspired by items such
as the Holstee Manifes-
to, students craft their
own life mission state-
ments.
I decided that I too
should create a declara-
tion for my current and
future self, and I en-
courage you to sit in a
quiet moment and craft
your own-a line or a
page. Here is mine:
Your life is a bless-
ing-every second, mo-
ment, and hour-from
an infinite, holy, perfect
Creator. Life is divinely
directed. There are no
ordinary details, ordi-


nary people, or ordi-
nary days. There are no
mundane coincidences.
There is only the ex-
traordinary, exquisite,
opportunity to seek the
face of God in the sun
and all that it touches,
the moon and all that
it holds, and the faces
of those made in their
Creator's likeness.
Each morning, be-
fore your feet touch the
floor, speak a prayer of
gratitude, for you have
been given another day,
another opportunity to
bless the Lord. When
people ask how you are,
tell them "Blessed," be-
cause as long as there
is breath in your lungs
you can speak life into
another, and that is a
blessing.
Move throughout


your day as the rising
sun moves across the
ocean-in shimmers of
light and pirouettes of
joy, for no reason other
than that is what it was
made to do. You were
made to fulfill a specif-
ic, world-changing pur-
pose.
You are more than
dust told to dance. You
are the vessel into which
was poured all grace,
imagination, passion,
beauty, forgiveness,
and love. In your soul
are oceans and galaxies
and mountains, for the
very author who spoke
those into existence
breathed life into you.
Seek Him in the
ocean of love, the gal-
axy of hope, and the
mountain of faith He
promises-for there you
will discover peace and
joy, which are the anti-
dotes for the pursuit of
happiness.
Feast your eyes on
as much of creation as
possible, for in know-
ing more of it, you know

THE WALTON COUNTY Florida Animal Shel-
ter's Pets of the Week are two beautiful golden rust
colored Vizsla hounds. Vizsla hounds are medium-
sized, short-coated dogs lean dogs. They have red
noses and light-colored eyes. Vizslas are very high
energy, gentle-mannered, loyal, caring, and highly
affectionate. Vizslas have been compared to horses
in their tendency to "trot" rather than run. The Viz-
sla is totally unsuited to being kept outside, since
unlike most other breeds, it does not have an under-
coat. They are self-cleaning dogs and infrequently
need to be bathed. Very unique and beautiful dogs...

cock Rd. Sultan and Sundance. Call for more in-

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,2013


HILDA CARPENTER OF DEFUNIAK SPRINGS did her part to help support Project Lifesaver by
purchasing several steak dinners on Friday, Sept. 6. The fundraiser was held in the parking lot of Thrift-
Way and was manned by members of the Walton High School Anchor Club in partnership with the Wal-
ton County Sheriffs Office. Project Lifesaver provides timely response time to locate adults and children
who may wander due to Alzheimer's, autism or other disorders. Funds raised will be used to purchase
bracelets monitored by the Walton County Sheriff's Office. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)

very public matter.
"We have people that
we pay a lot of money
to manage those (job)
positions, and I think
each of them is quite ca-
pable of performing the
duties of their offices,"
Carpenter said. "I'd like
to see them have the
authority to carry out
that responsibility. I do
not think every single
hire needs to 'come be-
fore this Council and I
do not think every sin-
gle disciplinary action
needs to come before
This Council."
Upon recommenda-
tion from the city attor-
ney, Carpenter agreed
to bring to the next
meeting his suggestions
as to the specifics of a
new hiring and firing
policy for the city.
The Council also
agreed to table discus-
sion about the city at-
torney position, another
agenda item brought
forward by Carpenter
following the previous
regular board meeting,
until Wright could be in


attendance.
Two resolutions
related to the immi-
nent construction of a
four-lane U.S. 331 were
passed unanimously
by the Council, both of
which amounted to re-
quests to the Florida
Department of Trans-
portation, the agency in
charge of the project.
The first resolution
showed support for a
request from Health-
mark Regional Medical
Center to ask FDOT to
adjust its construction
plans in such a way
that the four-lane high-
way will move from the
east side of the hospital
to the west side. Hos-
pital representatives
made a presentation to
the Council in which
they contended that the
route proposed by FDOT
would bring construc-
tion in close. proximity
to existing emergency
rooms, operating suites
and intensive care units
while also limiting the
hospital's ability to ex-
pand its facilities to the

Not all Blue Angels
fly through the sky with
the greatest of ease, per-
forming dazzling aerial
tricks. In DeFuniak
Springs, the Blue An-
gels fly very close to the
ground, bringing smiles,
help and comfort to the
'patients and visitors at
Healthmark Regional
Medical Center.
According to Beverly
Levering, president of
the Blue Angels Auxil-
iary, they have 14 mem-
bers so far and plenty of
room for more volun-
teers. '"We bring cheer.
and goodwill to the pa-
tients at Healthmark
and help visitors find
their way," she said.
"We are in the hospital's
main lobby weekdays
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
We also operate thegift
store here and because
we are a non-profit or-
ganization, all our pro-
ceeds go to scholarships
or charitable organiza-
Stions," said Levering.
The gift store pro-
vides the means for
much of what this group
does. The Blue Angels
annually award a schol-
arship to some lucky
youth, sometimes as
much $3,500. They also
contribute to the Salva-
tion Army, Red Cross,
COPE Inc., Emerald
Coast Children's Advo-
cacy Center, Friendship
House, the Santa Patrol
and more.
Though the hospital
gift shop has unique,
hard to find items, the
Blue Angels also do oth-
er fundraisers through-
out the year, including
jewelry sales and flea
markets. The Angels
are accepting vendors
for their next ben-
efit yard sale, which is
planned for Saturday,
Sept. 14, from 8 a.m. to


2 p.m. The event will be
held on the lawn near
the hospital campus'
main entrance off U.S.
331S.
"We'd love to hear
from vendors regard-
ing the yard sale but we
also want to meet new
friends and individuals
who would like to do-
nate some of their time
to our worthy cause,"
said Levering. "Stop
by and visit us in the
main lobby at Health-
mark Regional Medi-
cal Center or call us at
(850) 951-4542. Become
an Angel. You'll be glad
you did."

east. Mayor Bob Camp-
bell spoke in favor of the
resolution, stating the
importance of allowing
the hospital to grow to
meet the needs of the
community, which itself
will almost surely grow
with the widening of the
U.S. 331 corridor.
The second resolu-
tion requested that
FDOT begin construc-
tion on the north end
of the Interstate 10-to-
Rock Hill Road phase of
the project. The Council
voted to amend the lan-
guage of the resolution
to request that con-
struction begin on the
segment from 1-10 to
County Highway 278 S,
more commonly known
as Coy Burgess Loop.
This was requested so
that construction on
the highway would not
interfere with the plans
to expand hospital fa-
cilities at Healthmark,
which lies directly be-
tween Rock Hill Road
and Coy Burgess Loop.
Finally, DeFuniak
Springs will have its
very first Mardi Gras
parade come 2014 as

Kennedi Bates attends UF



Health Care Summer Institute


This summer Free-
port High School's Ken-
nedi Bates was chosen
to attend the UF Health
Care Summer Institute,
co-sponsored by the
University of Florida's
Office of Minority Af-
fairs and the University
of Florida's Area Health
Education Center. Dur-
ing this four week long
summer camp for mi-
nority and rural high


school students with
career interests in
health professions, par-
ticipants are able to
shadow several health
care professionals and
attend workshops on
study skills and test
taking, including a pre-
paratory course for the
SAT sponsored by Ka-
plan. While on campus,
students reside in cam-
pus housing and are su-


.4.


pervised by both a camp
coordinator and health
profession students who
serve as camp counsel-
ors.
During her stay Ken-
nedi was given the op-
portunity to job shadow
Graceville High School
alumnus, Dr. Seth
Smith, M.D., 'with the
UF Orthopedics and
Sports Medicine Insti-
tute, as well as many
other doctors working
at UF Health Shands
Hospital. During her
daily health care pro-
fession class, Kennedi
also learned how to su-
ture by practicing on a
pig's foot and took the
opportunity to watch an
open heart surgery.
When she wasn't sit-
ting through classes,
Kennedi was able to
immerse herself in the
UF atmosphere. She


was able to complete
her daily workout rou-
tine running Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium. Dur-
ing one of her workouts,
she met NFL linebacker
Jon Bostic. Bostic, who
played four years for
the Gators, was recent-
ly picked 50th overall
in the 2013 draft by the
Chicago Bears.

Kennedi is one of only
24 students chosen from
the Big Bend and Pan-
handle areas, and those
who know her can eas-
ily see how much this
opportunity has given
her the confidence and
drive to fully pursue
a career in health and
medicine. When asked
what her final thoughts
were about the experi-
ence, she replied, "It is
something that every-
one should take the ad-


vantage of doing. This
was an honor and a


life changing experi-
ence. Go Gators!"

as the company's guid-
ing principle, the.idea
of YOLO Board was
born. The two set out
to introduce SUP to the
Sunshine State with
the production of a va-
riety of high 'quality,
stable and soundly de-
signed stand up paddle-
boards. YOLO Board's
community-minded val-
ues are at the heart of
each and every board'
produced, be it a design
for the recreational sole
paddler or the elite pro
racer. Since opening
its doors in 2006, the
company has grown
into a beloved lifestyle


brand with bi-coastal
headquarters in Santa
Rosa Beach and San
Diego, Calif., as well as
an expanding family of
YOLO Board rental and
retail ambassadors both
nationally and interna-
tionally.
"These are just a few
of the wide range of
companies that contrib-
ute to the well being of
Walton County commu-
nities, providing quality
jobs, promoting positive
corporate citizenship
and helping our local
economy to grow and
prosper," added Kil-
berg.

ers set up exhibits and
more than 200 visitors
attended the Outreach
Fair, held Friday. Sept.
6, at the DeFuniak
Springs Co m mu nity
Center. COPE Center
Director of Human Re-
sources Leanne Lloyd
said the event, far and
away the best-attended
yet, expanded in every
aspect from last year's
fair an indication of
the success COPE's on-
going efforts to get in-
formation about health
services to the people of
Northwest Florida.
"We rented every
room [at the Commu-
nity Center]; we had
to,'." Lloyd said. "We had
a terrific turnout from
vendors and (service)
providers and especially
from the public. There
were times of the day
when we were close to
capacity. This is a sign
of good things to come,
for sure."
The full list of all the
organizations with ex-
hibits would take too
long to list, but par-
ticipation was varied.
Covenant Hospice, the
Emerald Coast Chil-
dren's Advocacy Center,
Guardian Ad Litem Pro-
gram, North Okaloosa
Medical Center, Pan-
Care of Florida, Preg-
nancy Support Center,
Life Enrichment Se-
nior Center and Sacred
Heart Hospital, among


many other community

ganizations, all set up
booths.

ings were also avail-
able to the public, with
North Okaloosa Medi-
cal Center providing
blood pressure readings
and cardiac risk assess-
ments, while Sacred
Heart offered osteopo-
rosis screenings, and
the West Florida Area
Health Education Cen-
ter provided oral cancer
screenings via mouth
scan. Vision screenings
and hearing screenings
were also available and

visitors at the.,,fair. In
addition to those;4nedi-
cal-related services, the
Outreach Fair also fea-
tured presentations on
Medicare, therapeutic
massage, insurance and
food stamp programs,
employment services,
adult education and
how to save for retire-
ment.

The COPE Cen-
ter representatives on
hand at the Outreach
Fair wanted to make it
clear that all the service
providers and vendors
featured at the event of-
fered services available
to Walton County resi-
dents, even -if the pro-
videror vendor does not
have a Walton County
location.


PUBLIC ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE WALTON COUNTY Sheriff's Of-
fice, the DeFuniak Springs Fire Department and Police Department, the Wal-
ton County Extension Office and Walton County Health Department also had
a presence at the expo. (Photo Courtesy of COPE Center)


THE PURPOSE OF THE FAIR IS TO CONNECT local residents with ser-
vice providers in the area and to educate the public on a variety of health top-
ics. (Photo by Reid Tucker)


Mr. & Mrs. Ron Prokop honored as

Agriculture Innovators by

UF/IFAS Extension and Farm Credit


On Friday Aug. 9 in-
novative farmers and
ranchers were recog-
nized by the University
of Florida IFAS Exten-
sion and' Farm Credit
of Northwest Florida
at the Jackson County
Agriculture Conference
Center in Marianna,
Fla. This is the third
year these two organi-
zations have teamed up
to honor an elite group
of innovative farmers
and ranchers in the
Florida Panhandle.
Mr. and Mrs. Ron
Prokop were recognized
as the Walton County
Agriculture Innovators
of the Year by Mindy
Hittle-McNair and
Mike Goodchild, Wal-
ton County Extension
Agents. Ron Prokop
operates R & R Ranch
located near the Gaskin
Community. They raise
hair sheep on their 41
acres, with Katahdins
and Dorpers being the
main breeds produced
on the farm. The Proko-
ps sell all natural grass-
fed lambs. Buyers can
purchase the live ani-
mal or they will deliver
it to a USDA inspected
slaughter facility so it
can be shipped to indi-


viduals throughout the
southeastern United
States. Ron, Prokop
considers himself an
experimentalist and
thinks outside of the
box. He is willing to re-
search and try different
products, methods, and
non-traditional options.
Ron is known as an in-
novative producer be-
cause of his willingness
to try new technology,
varieties, and manage-
ment practices.
His forage plan is re-
markable. Most produc-
ers grow a monoculture
field or a small blend of
like varieties, but not
Ron Prokop. The sheep
can process this high
quality growing forage;
Ron has developed an
all you can eat buffet for
his animals. The farm
is divided up into small

planting of different
blends and mixtures to-
gether. Since Prokop is
a natural forage based
meat producer, he has
to keep high quality
forage available at all
times to produce high
average daily gains on
his sheep. Prokop has
built up a customer
base over the last sev-


eral years, and even
has individuals that
drive by his farm and
come back to purchase
animals on the spot.
He also markets his
sheep online; most of
his sale transactions
are done through email
from purchasers and
the slaughter facilities.
Transportation of the
meat product had been
a problem, but he final-
ly has a custom USDA
inspected slaughter fa-
cility that will ship his
meat for him.
The Prokops have
used the services of the
extension office several
times. This includes
soil testing, forage test-
ing, and frequent visits

A 96 by 96 inch quilt,
"Around Town," was
sewn by the members
of the Chautauqua
Quilters Guild, Inc. of
DeFuniak Springs. The
pattern -was designed
by Dawna Baker and
featured in QUILT-

More than 40 differ-
ent fabrics were com-
bined to make clas-
sic quilt blocks with
well-known names:
"9-Patch," "Flying
Geese," and "Shoo-Fly."
The final step included
over .239,000 stitches


of custom quilting to
create a breathtaking
whole cloth quilt on the
back.
This venture had two
goals. The first was to
involve as many quil-
ters as possible. Twelve
members participated.
Second was to create a
quilt which would spur
donations. All proceeds
from ticket donations
are used for educa-
tional and charitable
work, such as making
quilts for wounded sol-

Dear Auntie Em, AO


Dear Auntie Em,
I have a friend that
is about to drive me
crazy. All she does is
complain. No -matter
what, she seems to find
the depressive, rather
than silver lining in
every cloud. I've tried
to express to her how
it helps me to be posi-
tive in life and hoped
it would rub off, but it
hasn't. Do you have any
advice before I just stop
coming around?

Friends with Eeyore


Dear Friends,
I like how you signed
your name, because
Eeyore and Pooh are a
,great example of friends
that have very different
personalities, yet still
find each other worthy
of friendship. They are
very different charac-
ters and the author,
smartly, knew that no
two are alike.
I understand it is
hard -sometimes to be
friends with someone


who does not share our
views. But, friendship is
not always supposed to
be a mutual admiration
society. Have you. ever
thought your friend
might be actually de-
pressed and need help?
Anyone who has actu-
ally suffered chemical
or clinical depression
can tell you it's not as
simple as just snapping
out of it. Sometimes our
bodies and brains dic-
tate the way we feel,
even if we don't like it.
I'd ask you to look
up the signs of clinical
depression, think about
your friend's history
and then sit down and
talk with them about
going to a doctor and
getting checked out. Ev-
eryone gets down now
and again. Sometimes
a death or illness of a
loved one, a lost job or
opportunity or even the
ending of a relationship
can cause temporary
depression, but long-
term depression needs
to be handled by a pro-
fessional.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,2013

DFSFOL to celebrate


10 Oth Anniversary


Library has remained
* small in numbers over
the years but mighty
in their ability to help
meet needs at the li-
brary. Over the years,
as governmental bud-
getary cuts have eroded
the library's financial
base, the Friends have
continued to provide
resources through their
very popular used book
sales and through the
generous contributions
of local patrons.
"Without the support
of our friends who are
so faithful to attend our
book sales, we couldn't
do what we do," Har-
ris added. "This open
house is really our way
of thanking the entire
community and we hope
they will drop by to cel-
ebrate withus."

His loss was felt by
family and friends, who
will remember the De-

military career at Eglin
Air Force Base in 1971
and began his Civil Ser-
vice career.
While his career ini-
tially brought him to
the Gulf Coast, it was

to the area and sharp-
ening skills as a fish-
erman that kept him
firmly in place, growing
more and more in love
with his newly adopted
hometown with each
,passing year and each
hour spent with his
family casting lines into
the emerald green wa-
ters. It was on those wa-

Heaven's angelic
choir was joined by the
beautiful voice of Mor-
ris William Watkins on
Aug. 31, 2013.
Morris Watkins, 77,
was born in Cincinnati,
Ohio on June 29, 1936.
After adoption at six
weeks of age, his fam-
ily returned to Milled-
geville, Ga. Morris was
raised by his paternal
grandparents, having
lost his father in an au-
tomobile accident.
Having completed
public elementary
(grades 1-6), Morris en-
tered Georgia Military
Academy and College
in Milledgeville, gradu-
ating with honors. He
completed his college
education earning a
BA degree from Mer-
cer College in Macon,
Ga. Morris completed
his four year military
obligation with the U.
S. Army and continued
his higher education
at Southwestern Bap-
tist Seminary in Texas.
As an ordained pastor
he served churches in
Lakeland, Fla., Tucker,
Ga., Jacksonville, Fla.,
Prattville and Selma,
Ala. While living in Ala-
bama, Morris returned
to Samford University
in Birmingham, Ala.
and there completed his
doctorate degree in mu-
sic ministry. In 1986,
Morris accepted a call
to First Baptist Church
of DeFuniak Springs,
Fla., where he served
until his retirement
in 2010. While living
in DeFuniak Springs,
Morris also taught cho-
rus and band at Walton
High School for more
than 10 years.
As a youngster, Mor-
ris showed a keen en-
joyment of all sports,
but baseball was his
favorite, as a player or
a spectator. In his early
20s he played semi-


Watkins
professional baseball
for the Macon Peaches,
the "farm" team for the
NY Yankees. He was an
excellent golfer holding
a single digit handi-
cap for many years. He
thrived on being able to
enjoy RVing and travel,
boating and fishing.
Morris was a member
of the Bay Point Yacht
Club, Kiwanis Club of
Panama City Beach,
Fla., serving as presi-
dent, and the Kiwanis
Club of Panama City.
He faithfully sang
in the choirs of St. An-
drews Methodist and
Presbyterian Churches
and was a member of
the local barbershop
quartet group, The Bar-
bershop Harmony Soci-
ety. In all aspects of his
life Morris displayed
genuine kindness, care,
and sincerity which
were the core qualities
of his character and
soul.
Community service,
especially that involv-
ing children, was as
important a ministry
to Morris as his service
within the church.
Morris was preceded
in death by his parents,
grandparents, and wife
of 22 years, Clara Ken-
nedy Watkins of De-
Funiak Springs. Morris
is survived by his loving
wife, Daphne Wilson
DuKate Clark-Watkins;
step daughter, Alyssa
Davis Hamman and son- -
in-law, Michael, Ham-
man, all of Bay Point
on Panama City Beach,
Fla.; three children,
Morris Wade Watkins
(Kathy) of Winston-Sa-
lem, N.C., Steven An-
drew Watkins (Janet)
of Warren, Ohio, and
Stephanie Lyn Watkins
of Clover, S.C.; three
grandchildren, all of
Clover, Justin Watkins,
and twins, Amber and
Austin Turner; three


stepdaughters, Su-
san Kennedy Beasley
(Bobby), of DeFuniak
Springs, Marcia Ken-
nedy McDonald (Roger)
of Marianna, Fla., and
Tanya Kennedy Mc-
Neil (Scot) of Mobile,
Ala., and numerous
step-grandchildren and
step-great-grandchil-
dren. A beautiful seal
point Himalayan cat of
Daphne's named "Kid-
do" gave him such plea-
sure, especially as she
loved to accompany him
on the front seat of the
truck or on a RV adven-
ture.
There were two ser-
vices celebrating the
life of Morris William
Watkins, each on Fri-
day, Sept. 6, 2013. The
first was held at Saint
Andrews United Meth-
odist Church with Rev.
Amy Persons Parks offi-
ciating. The second Cel-
ebration of Life service
was held at First Bap-
tist Church of DeFuniak
Springs, FL located at
216 E. Live Oak Avenue
with Dr. Bobby Tucker
officiating.

The choirs of each
church were in atten-
dance to present the
music Morris cherished
and directed for so many
years.
In lieu of flowers any
persons who would de-
sire to make a memorial
gift may send it to the
Service Account of The
Kiwanis Club of Pana-
ma City, in care of Keith
Forehand, treasurer, P.
0. Box 796, Panama

, AnanellnAmmons scored
Walton's only field goal,
a 3-pointer that drew a
huge applause from the
home crowd, with 28
seconds left in the game.
Graham went l-for-2 at
the stripe, while Mari-
anna collectively went
5-for-6 from the floor.
However, perhaps
nobody in the Panhan-
dle is better suited to
help the Lady Warriors'
program rebound from
the tough loss than is
Scovel. She took the
job at Walton Middle
in late July and held
tryouts in August not
much time to put in pre-
season work but Scov-
el said it's just a matter
of time before the Lady
Warriors see a big turn-
around.

"The kids have been
great," Scovel said. "We
just need some time to
develop the program.
We've been in a rush
since the start of school
and once we get settled
we'll see improvement.
The girls have a fan-
tastic attitude and they
like to work hard, so I'm
excited to see what the
future brings."

Taylor Haugen foundation equips Walton


Middle football ,,team with EvoShield gear


By REID TUCKER
The Walton Warriors
football squad on Sept.
3 joined an exclusive
group of 20-plus teams
to get EvoShield protec-
tive gear via a donation
by the Taylor Haugen
Foundation.
The non-profit orga-
nization founded by Bri-
an and Kathy Haugen is
dedicated to equipping
high school and middle
school football teams
in the area with pro-
tective equipment and
educating players on
sports safety. The foun-
dation is named for the
Haugens' son, Taylor,
,a student at Niceville
High School who died
after sustaining griev-
ous liver injuries in a
2008 football game. For
Brian and Kathy, help-
ing young athletes get
access to the new safety
equipment is as impor-
tant as helping them be
more aware of safety on
the field.
"Gearlike[EvoShield]
might not have saved
our son's life, but every
extra bit helps," Brian
said. "Safety is a mind-
set, and you have to be
mindful and responsi-
ble for yourself, but our


goal is to do whatever
we can do to help young
people enjoy the sports
they love safely.
"Everybody knows
you have to wear a hel-
met. We want to make
,sure as many young
players as possible get
set up with [EvoShield]
because internal inju-
ries can be just as fatal
as a head injury."

By accepting the
donation of about 45
compression shirts and
EvoShield abdominal
protectors, the Warriors
will become of only a few
middle school football
teams to make use of
the equipment, which is
quickly becoming an in-
dustry standard among
professional and college
programs. Famous us-
ers of the EvoShield sys-
tem include the Wash-
ington Redskins' Robert
Griffin III, along with
several local high school
football squads such
as the Freeport Bull-
dogs and the Walton
Braves. In fact, it was
the Braves who, after
an incredibly successful
fundraising effort to get
EvoShield equipment
for their own team, ac-


tually used the leftover
money to partially pay
for the Warriors' gear.
Taylor Haugen's
death, which took place
five years ago this Aug,
received national press,
including an ESPN spe-
cial and ads in support
of the Taylor Haugen
Foundation featuring


then-Florida Gators
QB Tim Tebow. More
recently, the Haugens'
message reached the
worldwide online au-
dience via an Aug. 30
article published on
foxnews.com. That ar-
ticle cites the opinions

Cleveland, who estimat-
ed that large hospitals
could treat upward of
10 young players, who


are more susceptible to
severe internal injuries
than adult athletes, per
year, while smaller hos-
pitals handle 3-5 such
cases per year.

FOUNDATION named for his late son, Tay-
lor, helped the Warriors get fitted for their new
EvoShield gear, which protects the ribs and inter-
nal organs from gide impacts. EvoShield gear is
used by several big-name professional players, in-
cluding Robert Griffin III of the Washington Red-
skins. (Photo by Reid Tucker)

Freeport dominates Blountstown Lady Tigers in volleyball clash


By REID TUCKER
The Lady Bulldogs
moved to 3-1 early 'in
the 2013 volleyball sea-
son with the convincing
straight-sets sweep of vis-
iting Blountstown.
Freeport gunned down
the Tigers by scores of 25-
19, 25-11, 25-17 behind
a trio of players posting
at least three service-


aces and vicious attacks,
plus staunch defense
from the back row.. Mary
Kate Myrick led the Lady
Bulldogs in scoring with
17 kills over the course
of the match, while de-
fensive specialist Laura
Hamm, Amanda Sefo and
Kennedi Bates were most
from serve, with defensive
specialist Bates driving


in a team-high four aces.
Myrick and Hamm each
had 15 assists on the night
of the Sept. 3 game.
Several individual
members of the Tiger
squad gave a good account,
with Savannah Jerkins' 14
kills and Cierra Brown's
13 attesting to their abil-
ity as attackers, while Bri-
anna Jerkins had 24 digs,
the most of any player on
the court.
All three games started
off close before Freeport
managed to edge ahead
and then, ultimately, close
the door on a Blountstown
comeback, with the ex-
ception of the second set,
which was all Lady Bull-
dogs from the get-go.
Freeport jumped ahead
to a 4-0 lead in game one,
but. Blountstown tied it
up then hung in through
14-12 Freeport. The Lady
'Dogs moved up to 21-15
advantage with Bates in
service, but Savannah Jer-


kins broke her serve and
took the Tigers on a three-
two run to 23-18. Myrick
shut down the retort with
a pair of deep front-row
strokes one off the arms
of Blduntstown's back row
defenders and another in
the gap to seal the deal
on the first win.
The second game was
initially tied 2-all before
either team knew what hit
them, but when Myrick
took a turn at service she
earned the Lady Bulldogs
seven straight points be-
fore Blountstown burned
a timeout to halt Free-
port's momentum. Though
the Tigers broke Myrick's
serve after the next vol-
ley, Bates soon got the ball
back and then crushed out
three aces, which, com-
bined with a triple dose of
spikes from Hamm, gave
the home squad a 19-8
lead before Blountstown
could serve again. Hamm
and Myrick teamed up

to by Reid Tucker)


with several hard cross-'
court and off-speed shots
from close-in to put down
the Tigers by 14 points.
Game three started off
like the others, with a tie
early on. However, this
one saw Freeport give up a
few more net hits and ser-
vice faults than they had
in the prior two sets, lead-
ing to a situation in which
the sides were deadlocked
at 8-all through a series
of close volleys. Myrick
presently uncorked a few
more kills and Sefo turned
in a great performance
from serve to pit Freeport


ahead by seven points, but
the Tigers clawed back to
within- striking distance
with Anna Hassig provid-
ing the firepower. How-
ever, it was for naught, as
Bates broke the serve and
then put Freeport up 23-
16, and bolstered by an-
other couple of kills from
Hamm, gave Freeport the
set-point.

Blountstown's junior
squad got a close win over
Freeport's JV in the 5 p.m.
match, turning in scores of
25-22 and 25-19 in the Ti-
gers' favor.

Walton County millage rate will


not increase for new fiscal year


By DOTTY NIST
Walton County tax-
payers will get a break
in the new fiscal year
as compared with the
property tax rate that
the county had previ-.
ously been eyeing for
the 2013-14 fiscal year,
As the result of a: de-
cision of the Walton
County Board of County
Commissioners (BCC)
the county-wide millage
rate is to stay at 3.5563
mills, the same as. for
the current fiscal year.
The decision occurred
in a 3-2 vote, at the first
of two Walton County
budget hearings, on
Sept. 9 at the South
Walton Annex. A good
showing of residents
and county staff turned
out for the hearing.

get, with the amount a
property owner pays be-
ing determined by their
taxable property value
and the millage rate
adopted by the county.


One mill equals one
dollar on each $1,000 of
taxable property value.
The total taxable val-
ue for properties in the
county was reported to


have experienced an
increase of about $600
million over the current
year value, with the re-
sult that approximately
$2 million more in ad


valorem taxes would,be
collected by the county
without any increase
in the ad valorem rate.

Dollar General, Crossings at Inlet


Beach clear Design Review Board


By DOTTY NIST
Plans for the Inlet
Beach Dollar General
and another project also
proposed for that com-
munity have received
favorable decisions from
the Walton County Sce-
nic Corridor Design Re-
view Board (DRB).
The decisions took
place at the DRB's Sept.
5 regular meeting at the
South Walton Annex.
The DRB reviews aes-
thetics-related aspects
of projects proposed for
the U.S. 98/U.S. 331
South Scenic Corridor,
including architecture,
color, landscaping,
lighting, site planning,
and signage.
The Sept. 5 DRB
meeting was the third
at which the Dollar
General had been con-
sidered. The proposal
has attracted consider-
able attention from con-
cerned residents over
the past few months as
it has undergone DRB
review.
Dollar General plans
presented at the Sept.
5 meeting displayed
modifications to ad-
dress DRB directives
with regard to lighting,
windows and awnings.
Windows and awnings
had been moved high-


er, and applicants pro-
vided board members
with two options for
aesthetically-pleasing
lighting fixtures. The
size of pole lighting had
been reduced in size
and replaced with light-
ing with an antique ap-
pearance.
For the building, op-
tions were also provid-
ed for either masonry or
Hardiplank siding exte-
rior.
Representing the ap-
plicant, Will Dunaway
told the board members
that project proponents
believed that they had
met all requirements
of the Walton County
Land Development
Code and Comprehen-
sive Plan. Dunaway
said project representa-
tives had also met with
citizens to address their
concerns.
Josh Hufstetler, also
representing the appli-
cant, said that the tow-
er shown on the current
plans was the result of
citizen input. He clari-
fied that the tower was
non-functioning but
had been added in the
interest of making the
design more aestheti-
cally pleasing and more
in line with the appear-
ance of buildings in the


Inlet Beach and CR-30A
area.
"It's impossible to
make every single per-
son happy," Hufstetler
observed.
He noted that other
changes had- included
the addition of trees in
the buffer area in front
of the store and the
tinting of the building
windows.
On behalf of the
10-property Pompano
Place Owners' Asso-
ciation, Robert Murfin
raised objections of a
general nature, some of
which were related to
the Inlet Beach Neigh-
borhood Plan's require-
ment for new develop-
ment to be consistent
with already-existing
buildings in scale and

PLANS FOR Crossings at Inlet Beach, a commercial retail center, were ap-
proved at the Sept. 5 DRB meeting.


character. Murfin main-
tained that, at 9,200
square feet, the Dollar
General would "dwarf'
surrounding homes and
the Spicy Noodle restau-
rant immediately to the
east which, he noted, is
only 3,500 square feet
with its porch included.
Inlet Beach resident
Betty Letcher comment-
ed that it seemed to her
that another item on the
agenda, a proposal for
changes to the Scenic
Corridor Standards' re-
quirements for outdoor
display or merchan-
dise, should have been
heard before the Dollar
General proposal, since
residents would be con-
cerned with outdoor
display of items at the
Dollar General.
Mary Nielson fol-
lowed up with a relat-
ed request that, if the
DRB approved the Dol-
lar General plans, there
should be an attached
condition that the exist-
ing outdoor display re-
quirements would con-
tinue to apply. She also
questioned whether
there would be outdoor
display of merchan-
dise on two sides of the
building if the prohibi-
tion on outdoor display
were relaxed.
Larry Brocato,
president of the His-
toric South Inlet Beach
Neighborhood Associa-
tion, stated that the de-
velopers had met with


community members
and had been very co-
operative. He said the
association's preference
was for the plans with
the tower and Har-
diplank siding.
North Walt9n Lake-
shore Drive resident
Rod Wilson agreed. He
commented that the
community's preference
would be for a smaller
store but that the de-
velopers had the re-
quirement for store size
imposed on them due to
this being a Dollar Gen-
eral. "We'd all like it to
be a smaller building,"
he said. Wilson pledged
to discuss the size of the
store when the propos-
al went to the Walton
County Planning Com-
mission if this was not
something that could be
addressed by the DRB.
Wilson brought up
traffic impacts of the
proposal as others had
done. These were not
under the purview of
the DRB to address.
DRB attorney/Wal-
ton County Attorney
Mark Davis also com-
mented that review for
compliance with the In-
let Beach Neighborhood
Plan would be the re-
sponsibility of the plan-
ning commission.
DRB member David
Bailey, who chaired the
meeting, noted that ar-
chitecture for the build-

2013), now until Oct. 19.
Area teens are encour-
aged to read for the fun
of it! This year's theme,
"Seek the Unknown" is
celebrated encouraging
young people to read for
the fun of it and share
their reading recom-


mendations by creat-
ing an art poster for
display in the library.

The District 5 Road
Crew is currently back-
filling the area where
the road (CR-30A) col-
lapsed.
County Public Works
is awaiting delivery of
the materials to repair
the culvert. Once the
materials arrive, it is
the county's number one
priority to make the re-
pairs and open the road
as soon as possible.
As this is moving
forward, the county
-is moving forward to
obtain the necessary
permits and work on
design for a permanent
bridge that would be
constructed there in the
future. The permitting
process can be lengthy
so in the interest of
being able to open the
road to the public, this
seems the best option.
Once permits have been
established and the de-
sign process has been
completed, it will be de-
cided when to re-close
that section of road for


construction.
While crews work to
reopen' that section as


soon as possible, it will
not be reopened until it
is deemed safe.

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,2013


A14 Clips


It's official, the city of DeFuniak Springs will
be rolling out the purple, green and gold car-
pet for the inaugural Mardi Gras Parade. In a
unanimous decision on Sept. 9, the City Coun-
cil approved and gave the Krewe de Yak Mardi
Gras Carnival Krewe the authority to block off
the roads and welcome Carnival around Lake
DeFuniak.


.For more than four
years, Walton County's
originalMardi Gras krewe,
Krewe de Yak/Yakkers of
Walton County, have been
making appearances all
over the Emerald Coast, in
parades such as the Billy
Bowlegs, the Krewe of St.
Andrews, Krewe of Domi-
nique Youx, and numerous
Christmas and holiday pa-
rades around the panhan-
dle. They have been doing
this to draw these same
krewes and organizations
to DeFuniak Springs for
their own Mardi Gras pa-
rade.
On Feb. 8, the streets
around Lake DeFuniak,
will be closed off and the
streets crowded with mer-
ry Mardi Gras goers. The
parade will be sponsored
by and led by the Krewe
de Yak, and will consist
of numerous floats, school
bands, classic cars, digni-
taries, clubs and social or-
ganizations, and of course
surrounding krewes from
Fort Walton, Panama City
Beach, Tallahassee and
Pensacola.
There are already sev-
eral activities that are on
the books and other events
that will be decided on in
the next few months. Some
events will .be for Krewe
de Yak members only, but
other events are open to
the public.
Events will include the
krewe membership party-
on Sept. 26 at the Hotel
DeFuniak/Bogey's Restau-
rant. This event invites
and welcomes new guests
to the society of krewes,
and is held annually as
the kick-off for the Mardi
Gras/Carnival season.
The second event that
will be held leading up to
the Mardi Gras parade
will be the announcement
and crowning of Carnival
King and Queen, on Oct.
3. This process is done by


secret ballot cast by krewe
members, and royalty
might or might not be a
krewe member.
On the given night, the
krewe will make a sur-
prise visit to the winning
home, or homes, to crown
the king and queen, read
the krewe creed, and then
crown the royals. This ,is
an activity that krewes
have done across the
South since the late 1700s,
and comes with great pag-
eantry and tradition.
The royals will then be
honored at a private party
in January, where they
will learn their duties of
the carnival season. They
will then be the grand
marshals of the Mardi
Gras parade on Feb. 8,
which will make its way
around Lake DeFuniak,
along with numerous oth-
er floats, cars, horse clubs,


bands and other entrees.
The krewe will host
numerous others on Feb.
8, as they will be rolling
in from other parts of the
Panhandle. Invitations
will be sent out the first
of November, not only to
other krewes around the
area, but local clubs, orga-
nizations, and businesses
in Walton County.
The day's activities will
conclude at 4C Barbecue in
DeFuniak Springs, where
the restaurant and club
will be transformed into
a Mardi Gras krewe ball,
complete with Zydeco mu-
sic, cajun food, souvenirs,
and costumes. The after-
party is for all partici-
pants in the parade, and
will honor those krewes
that have traveled from
out-of-town.
All participating krewes
and those choosing to be in
the inaugural DeFuniak
Springs Mardi Gras Pa-
rade, are encouraged to
throw candy, beads, or
souvenirs, that will pro-
mote their businesses,


clubs, organization, or
Mardi Gras. The Krewe
de Yak will also be selling
boxes of.beads, beginning
Jan.4,2014.
More activities will
be added to the calendar
of events throughout the
next few months, and each
year, th Krewe de Yak
will increase the activi-
ties to hopefully make it
a weekend-long event. All
public Mardi Gras events
are free and open to the
public, and all are family-
oriented!
Those wishing to par-
ticipate are encouraged to
keep the Mardi Gras spirit
and, dress in costume, or
the traditional gold, green
and purple, the traditional
colors of Carnival season.
Other traditions do in-
clude beads, coins, moon
pies, trinkets, throws and
toys for the young parade-
goers, that can be thrown
and safely caught along
the parade route.
Over the next several
months, the Krewe de Yak
website, Facebook page,


THE DEFUNIAK SPRINGS TRAIN DEPOT/Wal-
ton County Heritage Museum will be celebrating its 25th
year, on Sept. 21, as the city throws a festival in its honor.

ous vendors, demonstrations, and the history through

and radio and newspaper
PSAs, will give more in-
formation about the Car-
nival season and the Feb.
8 DeFuniak Mardi Gras
Parade. Closer to the pa-
rade date, banners and
posters will also be seen
at various locations and
establishments through-
out DeFuniak and Walton
County.
Mardi Gras krewes have
made their mark through-
out the South and have
become an annual event
that brings in hundreds
of thousands of revelers
from mid January until
the end of February. The
cities take in hundreds of
millions of dollars during
this time, this has become
one of the largest revenue
producing events for cities
like New Orleans, Biloxi,
Pensacola, Mobile,, and
Tampa, which has its own
pirate version of Mardi


Gras, called Gasparilla.
The tradition of Mardi
Gras has been around
for nearly 300 years, and
continues to be one of the
most recognizable events
that takes place in the
United States. There are
other cities in the United
States that have similar
activities, like St. Louis,
Philadelphia and Galves-
ton, but none draw the
crowds that the Southern
Mardi Gras carnivals have
done for many years.

Walton County was
the last county/parish to
have a Mardi Gras krewe,
from Galveston to Tampa
Bay. Walton County can
now have one more great
activity and community-
supported event to brag
about, and may be yet an-
other reason for tourists to
stop, shop and stay in our
great county!


THE 2013 HARVEST MARKET returns to Rosemary
Beach, Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. 5 p.m. More than 50 re-
gional and local artists, will be displaying and selling
their works in various medias. For more information,

In the fall of 2011,
Sacred Heart received
a grant to implement
an Arts in Medicine
program at its Emer-
ald Coast location. This
grant funding allowed
the hospital to enhance
the healthcare setting
for patients, visitors
and caregivers through
the arts. Through the
program, Sacred Heart
brings artists into the
hospital to provide activ-
ities at the bedside and
outpatient clinical ar-
eas and waiting rooms.
Types of activities can
include visual, musical,
theatrical, movement
and written arts. The
goal of the program is


to enhance our patients'
health care experience,
provide respite and re-
juvenation to our staff,
and promote communi-
ty wellness. Go to www.

mation about Arts in
Medicine and volunteer
opportunities.
Growing up in the
hills of Arkansas, For-
rest Williams picked up
the guitar when he was
14 years old and has
been playing ever since.
He grew up listening
to rock,, blues, country
and folk music from the
'60s up to present day,
which has influenced
his songwriting. His


style covers a variety of
music, incorporating the
acoustic guitar and the
harmonica. Pherrel Wil-
liams has been playing
keyboard and keyboard
bass for more than 20
years. Starting her pro-
fessional music career
at the age of 13 while
touring with her family
band, Pherrel has seen
her share of stages. For-
rest and Pherrel met in
2000, married in 2001
and started their music
adventure in-2004. The
road has led them to
Florida where they've
been welcomed by a
community of talented
musicians.


However, among the
budget challenges faced
by the county this year
are a state-mandated
increase in retirement
rates at a cost of $1 mi-
lion and Medicaid in-
creases, also mandated,
at a cost of $250,000.
Also included in the
budget is a $1.68 mil-
lion cost in the Walton
County Sheriffs Of-
fice portion of the bud-
get as. funding for six
school resource depu-
ties (SRDs). The SRDs
were added earlier in
the year at the county's
elementary schools in
response to the Sandy
Hook incident. Accord-
ing to Gerry Demers,
assistant county ad-
ministrator, half of the
SRDs' salary expense is
being provided by the
Walton County School
District. However, the
county is to pay the re-
mainder needed to fund
the SRDs, which, when
vehicles and other ex-
penses are included,
comes to about 75 per-
cent of the cost for the
deputies, according to
Demers., .
SProposed at the out-
set of the Sept. 9 meet-
ing was a preliminary
millage rate of'4.1060
mills, representing an
18.4-percent increase
over the Rolled-Back
Rate. The Rolled-Back
Rate is the .one that
would essentially result
in the same amount of
ad valorem taxes be-
ing collected as in the
current year. A total
budget of $111,536,521
was proposed, with the
operating budget to be
$109,286,521.
Citizen comment at
the meeting was over-
whelmingly against the
millage increase.
One of a number of
attendees expressing
this sentiment was Don
Riley, president of the
Walton County Taxpay-
ers Association (WCTA)
and president of the ho-
meowners' association
at the Grand Dunes
Condominium. "I urge
you to seriously' consid-
er a smaller increase,"
Riley told the commis-
sioners.
Riley said the WCTA
had yet to take an of-
ficial position on the
budget---but that he
was sure that the orga-
nization would not be
in favor of such a large
increase in the millage
rate.
"Try to figure out a
way to do more with
less or either do less,
because it's not sustain-
able for people," urged a
Freeport resident.
Santa Rosa Beach
resident Bob Hudson
identified an attempt
to keep reserves high
as a major reason why
the large increase was
being proposed. "What
we're doing is throwing
money in the savings
account," he said. He
asked the commission-
ers to consider whether
they needed to keep
so much money in re-
serves. Hudson also
suggested that the Wal-
ton County School Dis-
trict (WCSD) fund more


or all of the cost for the
SRDs.
Mary Nielson also
advocated funding the
SRDs totally through
the WCSD budget.
Carlene Anderson,
Walton County school
superintendent, dis-
cussed the WCSD's
budget constraints. She
noted that 50 percent is
the traditional amount
by which the school dis-
trict has funded SRDs.
She pointed out that
these officers are impor-
tant to adults as well as
to children, because the
SRDS are called upon to
break up fights between
parents at the schools
and remove parents
who become belligerent
toward teachers and
school administration.
Walton County Sher-
iff Mike Adkinson com-
mented that his depart-
ment is researching
ways to reduce costs for
SRDs, including the use
of part-time personnel
or volunteers.
Jacquee Markel said
she did not have a prob-
lem with the proposed
millage increase, that
she ,appreciated county
services, and that she
did not want to have
those services cut. She
spoke in favor of devot-
ing additional resources
to code enforcement.
County Commis-
sion Chairman Ken-
neth Pridgen suggested
going to the county's
constitutional officers
to see what additional
expenses could be cut
from their budgets. He
was in favor of reducing
the millage' rate, but
not below the current
3.5563 percent.
District 4 Commis-
sioner Sara Comander
discussed possible cost-
saving measures such
as turning off comput-
ers when they were not
in use, reducing travel
expenses for county
staff to attend meetings
by utilizing web cams,
and even putting off all
road paving projects for
the next year.
District 5 Commis-
sioner Cindy Meadows
was not in favor of the
latter measure, stat-
ing that she saw road'
paving as one of the
essential functions of
government. However,
Meadows pointed out
items from a list of ex-
penses that she had
obtained from staff and
suggested areas for po-
tential savings. She
spoke to the need to
"get a handle" on con-
sulting fee expenses,
costs for rent and leas-
es, repairs, and other
items. With cost sav-
ings, she was hopeful of
the county being able to
achieve a millage rate
of from 3.55 to 3.75 at
the maximum.
District 1 Commis-
sioner Bill Chapman
expressed caution about
dipping into reserves
to balance the budget.
warning that reducing
general fund reserves
could negatively impact
the county's credit rat-
ing and ability to bor-
row money. He added
that reserve funds are


needed in the case of
storms or other disas-
ters to pay for emer-
gency expenses during
a time period when the
arrival of federal funds
is being awaited.
Comander moved to
keep the millage rate at
3.5563 mills at least for
another year, express-
ing hope that within
the coming year the
economy would pick up.
Meadows seconded.
District 3 Commis-
sioner Bill Imfeld was
in favor of setting a pre-
liminary millage rate
between 3.5563 and 4.1
to provide for more flex-
ibility and give staff the
opportunity to research
a combination of the
use of reserves and cost
savings in order to low-
er the millage rate from
what had been proposed
at the start of the meet-
ing.
He later proposed
an amendment to Co-
mander's motion. The
proposed amendment
calledfor settingthe pre-
liminary rate at 3.5563
plus the amount needed
to account for the un-
funded state mandates
that had been discussed
previously. Imfeld's mo-
tion to amend was not
seconded.
In response, Mead-
ows commented that
the state could add $4
million in unfunded
mandates next year.
"Do we just keep upping
the budget?" she asked.
Meadows suggested
that staff look at what
cuts could be made in
order for reserves to
be reduced less, while
staying at the current
millage rate.
A vote was taken,
and Comander's motion
carried in a 3-2 vote,
with Imfeld and Chap-
man voting no.
A vote was taken on
the budget figure pro-
posed at the outset of
the meeting, which car-
ried unanimously to set
the preliminary budget
amount.
After the meeting, in
response to a question,
Demers stated that, due
to the BCC decision, in
the absence of any cuts
being identified it would
be necessary to reduce.
general fund reserves
from $11 million to ap-
proximately $5.5 mil-
lion in order to balance
the budget.
Walton County Fi-
nance Officer Wanda
Quimby said that staff
would be working over
the next two weeks to
identify areas for cuts
and cost reduction. In
response to a question,
.she said that $26,123
that had been proposed
to fund the operation of
county libraries on Sat-
urday would possibly
have to be cut from the
budget as a result of the
BCC decision.
By law, it would be
possible for the millage
rate to be reduced at the
BCC's second and final
budget hearing but not
raised. That hearing is
scheduled for 5:01 p.m.
on Sept. 23 at the Wal-
ton Cotunty Courthouse
in DeFuniak Springs.

DRB FROM PAGE 1-C


ing had "significantly
improved" since the last
meeting. He was ap-
preciative of the com-
munity's input on the
project.
Bailey said he would
support the Sternberg
lighting, one of the op-
tions proposed, and the
use of the. Hardiplank
on the store exterior.
He said he could under-
stand the concern with
the building size but
observed that several
large buildings were
under development and
planned for the vicinity
of the proposal. "I am
very much struggling
with the subjective por-
tion of our job," Bailey
commented.
Board member Ger-
ald Burwell observed
that homes could pos-
sibly be built with simi-
lar square footage in
the area. He was of the
opinion that the appli-
cants had done a "fair
job" with the plans.
"We'd be lucky to have
such cooperation in the
future," Burwell said.
He noted that unfortu-
nately the issue raised
regarding impact on the
neighborhood would be
the responsibility of the
planning commission
rather than that of the
DRB to address.
Board member Col-
leen Sachs expressed
appreciation for' the
changes that the ap-
plicants had made.
She was complimen-
tary about the lighting
option, which, she ob-
served, combined an an-
tique appearance with
the full cut-off required
by code. Sachs said she
wished the DRB could
address traffic issues
that had been raised by
citizens.
The Dollar General
plans, conditioned with
the Sternberg lighting
and Hardiplank op-
tions, were approved
with all aye votes of the
board members pres-
ent.
Bailey thanked the
citizens who had been
in attendance as the
board considered the
Dollar General plans.
He encouraged them to
continue to be involved
as consideration of the
proposal continued at
the planning commis-
sion and Walton County
Board of County Com-
missioners (BCC) level.


The proposal is sched-
uled to be heard by the
planning commission
on Sept. 12 at the South
Walton Annex, with
that meeting to begin at
5 p.m.
Plans for Crossings
at Inlet Beach (formerly
Inlet Beach Commons)
were approved at the
Sept. 5 DRB meeting,
as well. This is to be a
17,335-square-foot'com-
mercial retail center lo-
cated on a 2.68-acre site
on the north side of U.S.
98 between Wall Street
and Orange Street in
Inlet Beach. The plans
received praise and no
opposition from commu-
nity members present.
Tim Brown, county
planner, explained that
the project would go
near the corner of North
Wall Street and U.S. 98
and that there would
be entrances from both
roads.
The only deviations
from the Scenic Corri-
dor Standards proposed
by project applicants
were the use of two non-
conforming colors, a cy-
press wood color for trim
and black for awnings.
The DRB approval
granted the applicants
the ability to use the
wood color---and speci-
fied that either a color
matching the wood or
another color allowed by
the standards be used
for the awnings rather
than the black that had
been proposed.
Merlin Allan of the
Scenic Corridor Asso-
ciation and local busi-
nessman Tom Waldrop
had been placed on the
agenda to present a
proposed amendment
to the Scenic Corridor
Standards that the two
had worked out and
that, if adopted, would
relax the standards in
order to provide for lim-
ited outdoor display of
merchandise.
However, the two
men reported that they
still needed to come to
an agreement on one
portion of the proposed
amendment. They re-
quested that their pre-
sentation be continued
to the next DRB meet-
ing. This was agreed to
by the board members.

The next DRB meet-
ing is scheduled for 5
p.m. on Oct. 3 at the
South Walton Annex.

significant impact on
our service capabilities.
It is such a beautiful
thing to see local events
like this come together
to directly support the
needs of the commu-
nity, and we are grate-
ful to all the partners
who have helped make
this possible. The ART
of Giving event will
help Food For Thought
continue to support the
growing demand for our
services."
Founded in 2010,
the mission of Food for
Thought is to enable
area children to focus on
their development and
education by removing
the fear of food inse-
curity. Public schools
receive government
assistance to provide
breakfast and lunch for
these children on school
days, but when school


is out on the weekends,
they often do not have
access to healthy meals.
Through volunteers
and donations, Food
for Thought provides a
simple backpack filled
with healthy, easy-to-
prepare food for eligible
children to take home
over the weekend. The
organization has re-
cently expanded to
serve both Walton and
Okaloosa counties.
"We are so excited
about collaborating on
this event with Justin
Gaffrey because it mar-
ries two elements our
30A community em-
braces-a love for art
and a spirit of service,"
explained Britt Mat-
thews, Realtor and PR
and Marketing Director
at Beachy Beach 30A
Real Estate. "As a com-
munity-minded compa-
ny, Beachy Beach 30A
is thrilled to be a part of
new and creative ways
to spread the mission of


Food for Thought."
