THE 2013 WALTON COUNTY FARM FAMILY Y OF THE YEAR

Pridgens named 2013 Walton


County Farm Family of the Year


By REID TUCKER
When Steve Prid-
gen was a little boy he
played with toy tractors
and dreamed of one day
being a farmer like his
father and grandfather
before him.
Nowadays he works
his family's 430-plus
acres with real tractors,
but that doesn't mean,
farming has stopped
being his life's passion
and favorite pastime.
It is certainly still his
dream come true.
"I remember longing
for the day I could be
in a tractor out there,"
Steve said. "As soon as
I was old enough to get
on a tractor I was on
one, and I've basically
been on one ever since.
[Farming] is my pas-


sion. Some people like
to hunt, some like to
fish, and others like to
play golf. I love to be at
the farm and to do work
on the farm."
The family, which in-
cludes Steve, his wife,
Ronda, and their chil-
dren, Stephanie, Chase,
and Madisori, as well
as his mother, Martha,
was recently selected as
Walton County's 2013
Farm Family of the
Year in recognition of
their four-generation-
long devotion to work-
ing the land. Walton
County Extension
Service Director Mike
Goodchild and Agricul-
ture Agent Mindy Hit-
tle-McNair presented
the Pridgens with the
award on Friday, Sept.


13, at the family's farm,
located just off U.S. 331
North in the Liberty
Community. The family
will also be honored at
the Walton County Fair
in a special ceremony to
be held Oct. 10.
The, Pridgens' his-
tory on the land goes
back to Steve's grand-
father, C.R. Pridgen,
who bought the prop-
erty from the Jackson
Lumber Company, and
continued when Max,
Steve's father, pur-
chased the farm in the
late '60s. Steve planted
soybeans and peanuts
and raised cattle with
his father up until
Max's death in 1983,
when Steve, then a high

Freeport FD swap raises


.concern about home


insurance rates


By BEN GRAFTON
Attendance at the
Freeport City Council
meeting of Sept. 10,
following the trend in
place since the recent
city election, left few
vacant seats in the
Council chamber. The
audience included good
representation from the
Freeport Fire Depart-
ment.
Councilman Ray
Jackson opened a dis-
cussion about the impact
that transferring the
Freeport Fire Depart-


ment to Walton County
would have on revised
Insurance Service Of-
fice (ISO) ratings. Jack-
son said that there is
reason to be concerned
that rates for city and
county residents, now
served by the Freeport
Fire Department, would
rise precipitously. City
Attorney Adkinson said
that clarification of the
impact is needed and
he will follow up on
this issue. Jackson also
asked residents to call
their insurance agents


for information and he
proposed that the city
hold a workshop on this
issue before a final deci-
sion is made to transfer
the fire department to
the county.
Mayor Russ Barley
said that he does not
want to give up the fire
department but there is
a problem in financing
department operations.
He hopes to receive in-
put from the county
about this problem

By ALICIA LEONARD
The Walton County
School Board(WCSB)

meetings, back-to-back,
on Sept. 10 at 5 p.m.,

the final financial re-
port and budget amend-
ments for the 2012-13
school year, and to put
the finial millage rate
and budget for the 2013-

Mary Hobbs present-
ed the board with the
annual report which
stated that the district
came in over the state
requirement of having
3 percent of their fund
balance retained into
the next year for pos-
sible emergencies. Out
of the slightly over $65
million general fund
balance, $2,107,416 was
carried over, exceeding
state requirements of 3


percent for the district's
2012-2013 year.
Walton County
School Superintendent
Carlene Anderson rec-
ommended the annual
financial report, in-
cluding budget amend-
ments be approved by
the board and the board
passed the request 5-0.
The board then ,.
moved to adjourn, be-
fore reopening the sec-
ond meeting 15 minutes
later.
The public hearing
to adopt the final mill-
age rate and budget
for 2013-2014 opened
with Hobbs going over
the final details. The

Ignasiak Found in

Coral Springs, FL


Dr. Robert Leonard
Ignasiak, 58, was locat-
ed and arrested Sept.
10, in Coral Springs,
FL, after a call came
in for a suspicious per-
son. Upon contact, the
Coral Springs Police
Department took Igna-
siak into custody for an
active federal warrant
for violation of pre-tri-
al release. .Ignasiak is
also listed as a miss-
ing/endangered person
with the Walton Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office since
November 2012.
In May, 2012, an ap-
peals court overturned
the conviction and Igna-
siak was released after
serving several years of
a 24-year sentence for
over-prescribing pre-
scription painkillers to
his patients who did not
need them. On Nov. 3,
2012, Ignasiak's family
reported him missing
to the sheriffs office
and on the same day,
Ignasiak's vehicle was
located by deputies in


IGNASIAK


Seagrove. Blood and a
suicide note were found
in the vehicle.
Ignasiak is currently
in the Broward County
Jail awaiting extradi-
tion. According to the
incident report filed
by the Coral Springs
Police Department, Ig-
nasiak "stated several
times that he wanted
officers to shoot him in
the head," and that the
warrant indicated that
he should be placed on
suicide watch.

Ramsey Branch Road
and County Road 3280.
Construction of a new
bridge over Ramsey
Branch, creation of
stormwater retention
areas, water and sewer

solutions that they can
take back to their home
country in the hopes of
saving money, time and
increase their ability to
build stable and perma-
nent roads.
The current process
that is used in Walton
County has been in
place since 1998 and
was instituted by Public
Works employee Brooks
Davis. Davis had done
research in the late '90s
to find a better and more
efficient way for the
county to build roads.
Since working with soil
stabilizers, the county
has seen a large savings
in time and money.
"In regard to the sav-
ings that have been seen
by the county, we have
paved approximately
40 miles of roads since
2008. By using this
stabilization process,
we have saved approxi-


mately $1.1 million in
direct costs," said Co-
mander. "In addition,
we have been able to
use this process to allow
us to pave roads quicker
and shorten road delays
for the public."
Prior to using soil
stabilizers, the county
would spend approxi-
mately $45,000 per mile
to pave a road using a
limerock base. Since
moving to a soil stabi-
lization program, the
county is spending ap-
proximately $16,000
per mile which is a sav-
ings of approximately
64 percent. In addition
to the cost savings, the
stabilizing process also
increases the load-car-
rying capabilities of the
road, causes the road to
become more durable
and is not affected by
rain or weather events
prior to paving.'

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,2013


The Most

Wonderful



Time of


the Year

By BRUCE COLLIER


No, this is not the Christmas Editorial. I've
been spending more time in south Walton County
recently, even making trips into the heart of Des-
tin, including The Forbidden City I mean Sil-
ver Sands and Harborwalk, where it's possible
to walk along the harbor now. Just like the name
says.
I was looking at a pie chart online from BLS
(Bureau of Labor Statistics), indicating that Amer-
icans spend about 50 percent of their income on
housing and transportation. So, in effect, half your
earned dollar goes to getting you from home to
work to earn that dollar, and to having a place to
get back to, with what's left of it. If this makes you
feel furry and wanting to drink from a little water.
bottle, you're part of a great big club. Where we
live means a lot to us, doesn't it?
Several nights of the week I have been traveling
down to Seaside, and even spent some time last
Saturday morning wandering through the Farm-
ers Market. I didn't have time to stop and shop,
bu tHere were many others who did, sampling
Jyeadupastries, olive oils, local honey and cheese,
even sausage. I was actually able to park relatively
close to the market, meaning in front of the Neigh-
borhood School. In the high summer season, you'd
be lucky to get a parking spot in WaterColor, from
which you would hike to the market, and like it.
I had lunch a few weeks ago in Alys Beach, at a
restaurant where one can still look across the road
(Scenic 30A, at its most scenic) and see. the gulf. I
can recall when I first moved here and the same
view could be had at Seaside. No more. I wonder
how long there'll still be a view at Alys Beach.
Granted, there's development out there, but less
so than in other places, and. by comparison Alys
Beach looks almost pristine.
SIt's impossibleto appreciate a gulf view when
you're stuck beside it, staring at your exit just 500
feet away, moving toward it inch by inch. Deli-
cious food prepared by master chefs from locally
sourced.ingredients somehow loses its savor after
a 70-minute wait in a line of visitors who think
that gulping red wine is the way to beat 90-degree
heat. Like eating breakfast out? Then why did you
come here?
But they are not here now, bless them. They
came as expected, spent as hoped, and left their
money, in accordance with the prophecy. Summer,
with'its glut of cars, traffic and crowds of relentless
vacationers in an angry hurry, is where we earn
the right to enjoy the rest of the year. Like now.

There are no level playing fields anywhere
in America and officials seem only interested in
maintaining the status quo---self-aggrandizement
and expansion. k
Consider this: in 2010 Roger Clemens was in-
dicted for lying to Congress over his personal use
of steroids and faced up to 30 years in prison and
fines exceeding a million dollars. In April 2013 Di-
rector of National Intelligence James Clapper lied
to Congress about violating the civil rights and hu-
man rights of American citizens while his organi-
zations illegally eavesdropped on the nation. It is
beginning to appear that he also lied to Congress
about Syria's weapons capabilities. For his trans-
gressions he remains Director of National Intel-

My children have been riding the school bus
within the Walton Co. district since 2003. I have
always had a good relationship with their previous
drivers, and felt my children were safe during their
transport to and from school. That is until this past
week. This past week on bus number 08-10 there
has been a substitute driver. This driver not only
has complete abandon for the safety of all children
involved, but also absolute disregard for the laws of
the road. This driver has been seen speeding down
dirt rural roads at close to 60 mph. My daughter
who is a Junior at Walton High School told me
she has been thrown from her seat while riding
the bus with this driver. Yesterday as my children
were being dropped off, another high school age
girl got off the bus as well. She was barely off to
the side of the. road when the driver floored the
gas pedal sending rocks and dirt flying all into the
young lady's face. This act also knocked her on her
bottom in the nearby bushes. The driver then had
parents screaming at him to slow down, and watch.


Computer developers at Florida State Uni-
versity have developed an app for your smart
phone that could help detect Alzheimer's at an
early stage or chart the progress of a patient with
Parkinson's. The app is just the beginning of how
smarter and smarter phones will impact your life.
Younger people tend to walk in straight lines. Old-
er people tend to sway to the left and right as they
age. The same sensors in your smart phone that
gauge its orientation, may soon be helping doc-
tors monitor their patients. The app is the brain
child of computer scientist Dr. Gary Tyson. "We're
looking for this efficiency in the gad and how that
degrades over time. That's going to degrade for ev-
erybody as we get older. But we think there might
be a signature for that degradation occurs in some-
body who has a progressive disease," says Dr. Gary
Tyson, Florida State University. The app records

Editor:
It's easy to forget, but the Board of County Com-
missioners isn't the only agency responsible for our
rising property taxes here in Walton County. It's
the Walton County School Board. In fact, this year,
Smillage rates to fund Walton County's schools were
40 percent higher than the millage rates imposed
. by the Commissioners. Next year, things will get
worse.
In 2014, our school taxes will again rise, even
though the Commissioners recently voted to (large-
ly) hold the line on increased spending. Thanks to a
slim majority on the Walton County School Board,
the District will levy a 12.8-percent increase in
the millage rate. This double-digit increase comes
even as school revenues with the existing mill-
age rate would have increased by about 5 per-
cent, thanks to rising property appraisal values.
The only School Board members to vote against
this increase were Mrs. Sharon Byrd Roberts and


Mrs. Faye Leddon and taxpayers should thank
them for their courage and commitment to fiscal
discipline. i
This tax increase will hurt retirees, individu-
als on fixed incomes, and military families (facing
sequestration-related furloughs) the most. The
economy hasn't been kind to us in Walton County
over the past few years, and every penny counts.
It's very important to fund our schools, but more
money doesn't necessarily lead to increased stu-
dent achievement. When funding increases aren't
going towards instruction or to pay effective, de-
serving teachers more money and are instead
spent on capital projects and administration we
have to ask: does the majority on the School Board
have its priorities straight?

Sincerely,
Andrew Canipanella

ligence drawing exorbitant salary and expenses
from the very taxpayers he abusesand apparently
without understanding the things he oversees.
Recent media propaganda tells the American
people that "no one" in government understood or
could possibly understand the complex systems
being used to illegally obtain private information.
Well then consider this: those same tech morons
are expecting eventually to oversee the Internet.
If for example Keith Alexander cannot understand
the NSA system he oversees let's hire someone
with a better grasp. Edward Snowden comes to
mind.

for the kids.
I have made alternate arrangements for my chil-
dren while this driver is on the agenda. Would you
feel safe with your children on ,this bus? Would you
feel safe with your children anywhere near where
this bus drives? What is the training protocol for
the drivers who are responsible for our future? The
children have to follow a long list of bus rules,'but
what about the driver? You would think the first
rule for them to follow would be the laws of the
road, and to put the safety of our children first arid
foremost.
What will be .done about this situation, and any
situation that follows concerning the safety of our
children? Will this complaint be acted upon, or
will it be filed away until there-is an accident and
someone gets hurt?
An example needs to be made to prevent harm.

data on your movement 50 times every second.
"This point of impact actually corresponds to the
right leg striking the floor," said Leon Brown, Grad
Student. Ph. D. Candidate Leon Brown is working
with Tyson on the project. "I see it being useful in
balance clinics," says Brown Newer phones have
newer accelerometers which means this project
is only scratching the surface of what's possible.
The App is already showing great, promise in-the
training of student athletes. "Understanding how
you are doing on a day to day basis is valuable for
everybody weather it's a hangover or cold or what-
ever. We can capture that information by just look-
ing at how your phone is moving in your pocket,"
says Tyson. Tyson and his students have also de-
veloped an app that can judge when a person has
fallen and can't get up. The app will notify emer-
gency officials or family automatically. From Mike

DeFuniak Springs firefighters


train in real world scenario


By
JEFFREY POWELL
In the not so dis-
tant future the home
sites across from Pizza
Hut on U.S. 331S will


be the new Triangle
Chevrolet dealership.
Two homes there are
scheduled for demoli-
tion allowing construc-
tion to begin later this


year. In the meantime
Triangle partners Tay-
lor Lathinghouse and
Eric Joyner thought it
would be a good oppor-
tunity for the DeFuniak

Springs Fire Depart-
ment to get some real
world training. On Sept.
10 and 11, the depart-
ment staged several dif-
ferent scenarios to give
firefighters some much
needed experience.
"We are using this
home to stage different
conditions to train our
firefighters," said As-
sistant Chief Charles
Burney. "This is real
world training for our
firefighters and it helps
us prepare to the best
of our abilities. It also
helps us be safe while
training under con-
trolled conditions. It is
not often we get a real
home to train in. We ap-
preciate Triangle Chev-
rolet for giving us this
opportunity."
The firefighters prac-
ticed removing a down
firefighter and access-
ing the attic area of a
burning home among
other exercises. Nor-
mally training such as

more controlled circum-
stance at training facili-
ties.
"This exercise allows
the fire department to
train on a real home.
They can take their
chain saws and axes to
the building and prac-
tice "real situations,"


Joyner said. "We are
glad the firefighters
were able to get some
use out of this dilapi-
dated building. We ap-
preciate everything the
fire department does for
the community and are
grateful to be a part of
their training."

THE DeFUNIAK SPRINGS HERALD BREEZE, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,2013
School story book turns to

reality for third graders at WDE


The third grade class-
es of West DeFuniak
Elementary have been
reading a book called
Aero and Officer Mike.
The story is about Cpl.
Mike Matsik and his
K-9 partner Aero, who
have been partners for
four years. Through
words and action-filled
photographs, the story
captures the two on
duty working as one
and describes their re-
lationship at work and
at play, on duty and off,
at the station, respond-
ing to emergency calls,
and during ongoing K-9
training.
The third graders
loved the story so much
that Sgt. Nick Bearden
and K9 "Lee" visited


the students last week
at their school. Bearden
spoke to the children
about his job as a K9
deputy and how he
and K9 Lee work to-
gether. The children
I I ;i-A& 6__ ---


asked many questions
ranging from training,
how many weapons and
drugs K9 Lee has found
to how many missing
children they have lo-
cated working together.

Healthmark Regional


meets with FDOT


By HRMC staff
Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
(FDOT) District Secre-
tary Tommy, Barfield
and members of his
staff met with Health-
mark Regional Medical
Center (HRMC) CEO
Dr. Jim Thompson and
staff Monday, Sept. 16,
at the hospital in De-
Funiak Springs to dis-
cuss the planned widen-
ing of U.S. 331 South.
Dr. Thompson began
by expressing his en-
thusiasm and support
for the project and the
growth it will bring. He
explained his concerns
about the current path
of the roadway and how
the construction so close
to the Emergency Room,
Operating Room and In-
tensive Care Unit could
significantly impact the
hospital. Thompson
also noted that the hos-
pital campus is marked
by wetlands to the east
and south, leaving only
the front parcels near
the highway available
for the planned expan-
sion of two medical of-
fice buildings and park-
ing to serve the future
health care needs of the
people of community.
As a solution, Thomp-
son presented Secretary
Barfield with an alter-
native plan that moves
the path across to the
western side of the
highway for less than a
mile in length. Thomp-
son said this would al-
low HRMC room to
grow and would also
leave the nearby COPE
Center property intact.
COPE Center Direc-
tor Rachel Gillis, Wal-
ton County Commis-
sioner Sara Comander
and DeFuniak Springs
City Councilman Ron
Kelley also attended
the meeting. Gillis ex-
plained how important
their property is to
their client operations
and asked for FDOT's
consideration of Dr.
Thompson's request.
Comander urged FDOT
to consider the long
term'health care needs
of the community 'and
also urged support for
the hospital on behalf of
the DeFuniak Business
& Professional Associa-
tion.
Barfield and staff
listened attentively
and pledged to work to-
ward a timely solution.
Barfield said he better
understands HRMC's
concerns and suggested
possible alternatives
as a compromise. He
said a change might be
difficult and much has
already been done, but.
noted that more than
money was involved
with this issue.
Thompson agreed,
saying, "We also believe
that the ability to deliv-
er health care to our cit-
izens during construc-
tion and in the future


far outweighs slight
monetary consider-
ations." Thompson also
noted that the current
path would interfere
with four existing busi-
nesses HRMC, COPE
Center, a fire station
and a well-drilling com-
pany.
The meeting was in-
formative, cordial and
both sides seemed to
feel progress had been
made.
After the meeting,
Thompson said, "We
were grateful that Sec-
retary Barfield and his
top people came here
to meet with us and
see this campus, which
already features a 50-
bed general surgical
hospital, a home health
agency, physician offic-
es and a walk-in clinic,
MRI, physical therapy,.
durable medical equip-
ment and many more
services.
-"j am optimistic that
Secretary Barfield and
FDOT will favorably
view and accept a slight
variation to the current


plan so that we can avoid
the disruption of any of
our medical facilities
during construction,
as well as reassure our
citizens that expanded
medical services will be
possible on this campus
in the future."
Thompson also
thanked local govern-
ment and business
leaders for their help.
"The community has
been so gracious and
supportive of our efforts
Sand we truly appreciate
the help of the Walton
County Commission,
the DeFuniak Springs
and Freeport city coun-
cils, COPE Center, the
Economic Development
Alliance, the DBPA and
so many wonderful in-
dividuals," he said. "We
thank you all."
Barfield said FDOT
engineers and staff
will be examining the
proposed realignment
and all of the informa-
tion provided by hospi-
tal staff but no specific
date was set for the next
meeting.


WALTON COUNTY SHERIFF Michael A. Adkinson Jr., alongside Lt.
Dewey Adams and many other staff met with citizens Sept. 16 at the Chautau-
qua Building in DeFuniak Springs as part of a month-long series of town hall-
meetings. The sheriff met with residents in Paxton on Sept. 10 and meetings
are scheduled for Sept. 26 at the Freeport Community Center and Sept. 30 at
the Walton County Sheriffs substation in south Walton.

In other business:
Fire Chief Chad Har-
rell presented the de-
partment summary
report. There were
82 calls answered in
August including 67
medical emergencies,
two structure fires and
seven motor vehicle in-
cidents. Members of the
"department also gave
cardiopulmonary resus-
citation (CPR) instruc-
tions at the high school
and performed routine
maintenance on 295 fire
hydrants.
Councilman Harold
Taunton reported that
activities at the Sports
Complex include spray-
ing for mole crickets
and pruning bushes
down to a manageable
size. Planning is under:
way on a festival and on
preparations are under-
way for the coming soc-
cer season.
City Clerk Robin
Haynes reported that
an account has been set
up to manage donations
coming in for establish-
ing the Freeport His-
tory Museum in the Old
Post Office. Tim Ard
added that Cash and
Carry provided paint
for the interior of the
building. Sheet rock
work is underway. A se-
curity system is under
development and a sign
matching the style of
the sign on the Blount
House will be provided.
Training classes for vol-
unteer museum work-
ers will be conducted
in October and plans
are going forward for a
grand opening on the
afternoon of Nov. 3.
Haynes advised the


ROM PAGE 1-A
Council that a revi-
sion is being made to
the city's personnel
policy. A temporary
job classification is be-
ing developed to define
temporary employees
as those who work no
more than six months
in a 12-month period
and who will be limited
to a maximum 25 hour
work week.
City Attorney Clay-
ton Adkinson has re-
viewed the city's policy
on reprimands. He
found that there are
conflicts in the policy
and revision is needed.
Revisions should clarify
those who have the au-
thority and responsi-
bility for issuing repri-
mands.
Representatives of
the Regional Health
Center asked the city
to provide a resolution
calling for realignment
of the U.S. 331 right-
of-way at the Health
Center to deal with the
taking of 200 feet of
property and to provide
adequate lighting for
the entrance. They re-
ported that the Depart-
ment of Transporta-
tion (DOT) is willing to
discuss the matter and
that DeFuniak Springs
and Walton County
have already issued
resolutions supporting
the Health Center. The
Freeport City Council
approved the request.
Haynes asked the
Council to approved a
new three-year contract
with DOT under which
the city will perform
grass cutting and clean-
ing services for U.S. 331
within the city. The re-
quest was approved.

BUDGET FROM PAGE 1-A


tal projects, including
new school construc-
tion counted towards
$5,706,153. The final
overall millage pro-
posed was 5.659 mills,
an increase of .646 mills
over last year's budget,
exceeding the roll-back
rate by 17.32 percent.
In the operating bud-
get alone, over $53 mil-
lion of the $66,453,211
appropriated goes to-
wards salaries and ben-
efits for the district.
Historically, the
5.659 mills request is
lower than the millage
rates of the years 1988-
2004. Operating budget
millage has stayed the
same since 2009 and
capital projects at 1.393
mills is rising back to
2003-2007 rates. RTE
rates, handed down
by the state have been
steadily climbing since
the 2006-2007 school
budget year.
Board chairman
Mark Davis opened the
public comments sec-
tion of the meeting and
two residents spoke
against the increase.
The first to speak to
the board, Doug No-
lan, brought up a piece
of cardboard material
to show the board his
personal tax informa-
tion and increases paid
through-out the past
years. Nolan requested
that the information
only be made visible to
the board.
"I just wanted to
show you a personal
thing about what the
TRIM notice is going
to do to me personally,"
Nolan told the board.
He told the board that
the new mileage would
increase his taxes by
over 13 percent and if
the trend continued, his
taxes would be doubled
in the next six years.
"This is a time when the

The terms provide

for operations and man-

of Freeport would retain
ownership of real prop-

the fire department, in-
cluding the station, and
lease it to the county at
a cost of $1 per year.
Other fire depart-

Anderson. responded
to Nolan as a point of
clarification, "The ma-
jority of the increase
that you noted to the
board tonight is an in-
crease in Required Local
Effort. We are required
by the state to levy that.
I can't change what
to recommend to the
board under required,
nor could they change it
either." Anderson add-
ed that capital outlay
also increased the bud-
get, due to, schools be-
ing "overrun" with stu-
dents and exponential'"
growth in the south end
of the county. Anderson
,added, "the board does
not have to pass the
millage to build build-
ings, but we are out of
room and have no place
to put children."
Nolan expressed his
concern that increasing
the amount every year
would tax some out of
homes and properties.
Hobbs read the reso-
lution determining rev-
enue and millage to the
board and audience.
Anderson recom-
mend the approval of
the resolution and a
,motion was made and
seconded. Davis called
again for public com-
ments and one man re-
sponded fromthe audi-
ence, "no, we don't want
any of it raised." Davis
requested the man come
to the microphone and
say his name for the re-
cord.

In the past, funding

the county to the Free-

raising taxes for ev-
erything you need. No
more. Get it somewhere
else. We don't need this.
We want our taxes low-
ered, all of them. Sixty
percent of the property
tax in this county goes
to the school. That's un-
acceptable," he said.
Davis then called for
board discussion and
added, "I just want to
point out, since 1997
through 2010, 2011,
the total millage has
been halved from 9.354
mills to 4.654 mills.
Obviously, we were the
beneficiaries of a pretty
healthy tax base. The
capital projects went.
from 1.393 mills to .900
mills from 2003 to 2012.
This is the first tax in-
crease this board has
done since 1998-1999
school, year. We have
scrimped and saved. I
don't like raising taxes
no more than anyone
else. I pay them just
like everyone else does.
We've tried to make
do with less for a long,
long time and we are at
a point.... I've scrubbed
this budget. I know you
guys [the board] have
scrubbed this budget.
But, if there is anything
you think we need to
cut out, now is the time
to say it, if not, then let
us know now. We are
finally at the point that
we have to do this, sad-
ly, and I just wanted to
say that for the record."
Souders then ap-
proached the ,board
again and responded
they were "moving the
line around" adding,
"this is the wrong time
to do this. Bad for the
local economy, bad for
local businesses," be-
fore walking away from
the table.
Davis called for any
more comments and
with none forthcoming
called the question from
the board on their vote.
The board passed the
millage resolution 3-2
with Faye Leddon and
Sharon Roberts being
the nay votes.
Davis then called
for a vote on the 2013-
2014 budget. The board
passed the budget 3-2

THE PRIDGEN FAMILY, HERE REPRESENTED BY STEVE, Chase,
Stephanie, and Martha, were selected as the 2013 Walton County Farm Fam-
ily of the Year. The Pridgens were presented with their trophy at their'farm in
the Liberty community by Walton County Extension Service Agriculture Agent
Mindy Hittle-McNair and Director Mike Goodchild. (Photo by Reid Tucker)


OF THE PRIDGENS' 430-PLUS ACRES, 120 acres are used as pasture
land for the family's 65 head of black Angus/Brahma cattle. The rest of the
property is planted in timber, and the Pridgens were named as the Florida
Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year in 2007, (Photo by Reid Tucker)


FAMILY

school junior, took over
operations.
Though Steve stud-
ied criminal justice at
the University of West
Florida and now works
full-time for the Federal
Probation Service, he
still makes time to take
care of 65 head of beef
cattle and 120 acres of
pasture land as well as
300-plus acres planted
in pine trees. The Prid-
gens are no strangers
to recognition for their
achievements in agri-
culture, having been
named Florida's Out-
standing Tree Farm-
ers of the Year by the
Florida Forestry Asso-
ciation in 2007. Indeed,
the stewardship of the
land is a central part of
who the Pridgens are as
a family.
"The land is very spe-
cial to me," Steve said.
"Working on it is an op-
portunity that I'm grate- /
ful to have. It's a piece
of God's Earth that you
get to tend. You get to
watch things grow and
see the change of sea-
sons, and that's some-
thing I deeply appreci-
ate. Although we're a
very small operation in
comparison to some of
the others around here,


FROM PAGE 1-A

I take pride in trying to
keep the land looking
good and in keeping ev-
erything productive."
The family's farm-
ing legacy is still going
strong into the current
generation, as both
Stephanie and Chase
regularly wake up ear-
ly on weekends to help
their dad on the prop-
erty, and so they very
much deserve to share
the Farm Family of
the Year Award, Steve
said.
"My kids have helped
me a lot over the years,"
he said. "They're here
for me whenever I need
them. My son drives a
tractor for me, whether
it's breaking land or
moving hay or mow-
ing. My daughter helps
out when she's home
from school, even if that
means building a fence
with her brother and
me."
The Pridgens ex-
pressed their grati-
tude for being chosen
as Farm Family of the
Year, and they thanked
their neighbors and the
Extension Office for
their help and support
over the years. Steve
said having his fam-
ily's generations of hard


work be recognized by
one's peers is a "tremen-
dous blessing," but, that
said, the opportunity
to work the land has
always been a reward
into and of itself. For


the Pridgens, farming
is more than an occupa-
tion it's truly a call-
ing and it's something
Steve plans to always
make a part of his life.
"To be selected for


this award is quite an
honor," Steve said. "It's
a tremendous blessing
to get that recognition
when you aren't seek-
ing it. You think you're
doing a good job, but it's


really great when other
people appreciate what
you do.
"As long as I'm able
to physically to do it, I'll
always farm. I'll farm
until I can't do it any-
more."

The NIH, America's


Research Hospital,


where science and the


future meet for a cure


By ALICIA LEONARD
Many never stop to
think about science and
the huge part it plays in
our daily lives. We think
about technology, but
what about the science
of medicine? Where do
the scanners and the
advanced medical re-
search that may save
a friend or a loved one
come from? Odds are,
many things we take
for granted such as life
saving technology and
therapies came from
research and the one
place to go for research
in the United States
is the National Insti-
tutes of Health Clinical
Center(NIH).
The NIH is a depart-
ment of the U.S. Health
and Human Services
agency. It is the leader
for all ranges of re-
search from searching
for a cure for cancer, the
development of chemo-
therapy, t6 helping oth-
ers live with arthritis to
the mapping of the hu-
.man genome and brain.
In all it encompasses 27
different institutes and
its history holds a road
map of Nobel Prize win-
ners -going all the way
back to 1939.
It's beginnings are
humble. Starting back
in 1790, from a Ma-
rine hospital dedicated
to providing relief for
servicemen and grow-
ing into a network the
next 100 years, until
the 1870s, when fund-
ing was allocated from
Congress to find the
causes of epidemics like
the yellow fever, which


led to the creation of the
Board of Health.
In 1922, the organi-
zation began to research
and seek a cure for can-
cer. This opened the
door to researchers and
medical schools to begin
a long partnership in
seeking treatment for
rare and fatal diseases
that many benefit from
today.
The Clinical Center,
also known as Building
101 on the main cam-
pus in Bethesda, Md.
recently celebrated its
60th birthday and is the
place where many go to
take part in research,
to make the path easier
for future disease suf-
ferers.
Clinical trials are a
big part of that research
and the NIH handles
two different types. The
first is on' healthy vol-
unteers without a dis-
ease. Volunteers often
are tracked for years in
specific studies. This is
how researchers gather
information about dif-
ferent groups, disease
trends and much more.
One family volunteered
to have their cardiovas-
cular health tracked in
a study and much that
doctors now know about
heart attacks, recovery
and treatment can be
attributed to genera-
tions of volunteers like
them.
The second group is
made up of volunteers
that suffer from rare
diseases or disorders.
They enter a specific
protocol and receive the
newest treatments and


U.S. AIRWAYS offers non-stop flights to Ronald
Reagan National Airport where an NIH shuttle
picks up and drops off patients in their care.


testing and results are
used to provide infor-
mation to researchers
and physicians for the
treatment of future pa-
tients.
Clinical trials can
also offer hope for those
whose regular physi-
cians have exhausted
all sources of care and
treatment at home.
Our journey with
NIH began in the Val-
paraiso airport, where a
U.S. Airways jet offers
a non-stop flight into
the Ronald Reagan Na-
tional Airport, less than
10 miles from the NIH'
campus in Bethesda.
After getting cleared
by security, one is awed
by the historic build-
ing and the sprawl of
the campus. Walking
through the huge glass
revolving doors into
Building 10, the first
thing that strikes one
is the atmosphere cre-
ated by the people who
work and come there
for treatment. Patients
may very well spend the
morning sitting next to
a family from France
and have dinner that
afternoon with a pa-
tient from Zimbabwe.
SYoung cancer pa-
tients, pushing toy
strollers with parents
following close behind,
often intersect with
NFL players visiting
the children's wards and
retired baseball legends
share coffee and bagels
in the lab with fans that
run across them. It is a
great cultural melting
pot of researchers, phy-
sicians and people from
across the globe.
Building 10 is much
like a small city itself.
It takes a little over a
day to get used to the
complex. Following the
elevators down to the
first basement level,
one finds a small mall
type atmosphere, with
gift shops, a barber
shop, and multiple meal
choices, from Italian to
fresh Angus burgers all
served with smiles and
surrounded by students
that look like extras
from the.television show
The Big Bang Theory.
Elizabeth, the man-
ager of the cafeterias in
section B1 and on floor
2 is from Jamaica and
she takes those new to
the grounds under her
wing, flashing a daz-
zling smile and sweet
accent as she explains
the hours and choices
for those visiting the
campus.
The campus is set
up to be family friend-


THE EDMOND J. SAFRA Family Lodge aims to give patients and their
families a place to relax amid medical issues.


THE FAMILY LODGE offers a garden-like retreat outside for patients and


their families.


ly, with two lodges for
those receiving testing
and treatment at the
center. Shuttles run
most of the day, carry-
ing patients and their
families between the
lodges and appoint-
ments or flight to and
from home.
The Edmond J. Safra
Family Lodge opened
in 2005 and offers' a
home-type feel for fami-
lies participating in re-
search and family mem-
bers staying with loved
ones undergoing sur-
gery and treatment. It
is geared more toward
adults attending the
center. The Children's
Inn at NIH is offered
for children undergoing
treatment and testing
as a calm and nurturing
* environment for them
and their families.
This Herald/Breeze
reporter met with Dr.
Karel Pacak, M.D.
Ph.D., DSc, an inter-
national expert on
pheochromocytoma
and paraganglioma.
Pacak put together the
research protocol for
these rare endocrine
tumors over the past 15
years. He, along with
his colleagues have de-
veloped imaging and
biochemical approaches
for finding these deadly
tumors, methods that
have increased survival
rates and extended life
spans for many suffer-
ing from them.


Animated, intelli-
gent, personable and
with what appears to
be an unlimited source
of energy, Pacak and
his patient coordinator,
nurse Karen Adams
Helps pheo/para' pa-
tients navigate through
intricate testing and
schedules during their
visit with the NIH with
relative ease.
Often patients are
referred to NIH by their
physician for clinical
trials. Those accepted
into the protocols, often
need only pay for trans-
portation to the center
and meals during their
stay. In exchange for
taking part in research,
they receive medical
care, screenings and
often treatment, not yet
available to the general
public.


For patients seeking
answers, suffering from
rare diseases or disor-
ders and those wishing
to help further medical
research to help future
generations, the NIH
is an amazing resource
and calm in the mid-
dle of the storm. But,.
like many government
agencies, sequester cuts
have affected the num-
ber of patients seen at
the center and in turn
has slowed research
that could help millions
of Americans as well as
people across the globe.
To see more about
"America's Research
Hospital"' go to clinical-
center.nih.gov. To find
out more about clinical
trials go to Clinical-
Trials.gov. To find out
more about the NIH, go
to www.nih.gov.


MANY OF THE features in the family lodge was
made possible through private and business dona-
tions. Some are made in memory of patients past,
old and young.

Dear Auntie Em,


Dear Auntie Em,

I write with a sorrow-
ful heart. What I don't
understand is how can
people be so mean and
spiteful! My family and
I stay at home. We don't
bother our neighbors,
we do pray for them, we
love them, but out prob-
lem is we have nosy
neighbors. They are all
the time sticking their
nose in stuff they don't
know anything about.
Our children have
turned against us, be,
cause they believed
their lies, instead of
asking us if it came out
of our mouths.
I thought when we
moved to DeFuniak
Springs, it would be a
good place to live. But,
I'm not so sure now. It's
not the town, it's the
nosy people.
Please help me to
understand all of this
mess.
God bless,
Confused

Dear Confused,

I think everyone, no
matter where they live
has been stricken with
running across those
that like to gossip, or
tell tales as my granny
used to say. Growing


up in a small town, my
mama always told me
being on the gossip vine
was, a public service
because it gave some
other poor soul a break
from being talked about
all the time.
I'm not sure why your
children have ."turned
against" you, but I do
believe that everything
comes clean on wash
day and children often
learn the truth in their
own time. It's hard, no
doubt, but to pray for
ones who wished you
bad, hold your head
up high and live your
life on your own terms
is the best you can do
many days and the best
medicine for those with
nothing better to do
than cause trouble.
A good rule I stand
by is to listen how peo-
ple speak of others, be-
cause it is how they will
speak of you when you
are not there in my ex-
perience.
I would continue to
do as you have done
and not worry about the
kids. They will figure
things out on their own
and come back around
when they sort it all
out.
As far as the'town,
almost all barrels
hold a rotten apple or
two, it's how close the


ODop gtefms off Fr.iaj e.eoeng wto; st anr.-rlingincb.Aig.

other apples hang. out
with them that deter-
mines whether the rot
spreads. So, don't hang
out with rotten apples
and don't judge the
whole barrel on a few
smelly fruits you have
run across. Every town
has them and when
people ask your busi-
ness, ask them, "why do
you ask?" That usually
shuts them down really
quick. God bless, good
luck and I hope this
pain these people have
caused you will not
darken your door much
longer.

Camara
Mr. Izaias Camara,
86, went home to be
with his Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ
on Wednesday, Sept.
11. He was born July
6, 1927, in New Bed-
ford, Mass., to Manuel
M. Camara and Maria
Gomes Camera.

again Christian and a

Sunday School Teach-
er, and enjoyed serving
his Lord. He was a vet-

his Bible 'daily. He was

ic Lodge F&AM # 108

A Conspiracy of Kindness


By Ronnie McBrayer


An ancient story,
often retold but never
without relevance, has
one of the Egyptian Pha-
raohs making a strange
request of his priests.
As the sacrificial ox was
being slain at the altar,
the Pharaoh demands
that the holy men bring
to him the holiest por-
tion of the animal, and
that part of the animal
most evil. In the end,
the priests brought Pha-
raoh only the tongue.
This reflects the
parallel wisdom of an
equally olden Jewish
proverb: "Death and life
are in the power of one's
words; they hold both
poison and fruit." The
ancients knew this the
power of words but we
seem to have forgotten
it. For all the trouble
afflicting this world to-
day, one of the more in-
sidious but overlooked
concerns is the failure


of basic civility.
Caustic cable news
sound bites, scathing
Facebook comments,
political mudsling-
ing, rants and tirades
against enemies and
neighbors: There is a
devilish eagerness to
rip others apart with
our dehumanizing, vio-
lent words. This loss
of healthy, respectful
communication is as big
a factor in the loss of a
society's soul as institu-
tional and economic col-
lapse.
What can we do
about it? Not much if
we continue spewing
poison and death with
our mouths. But venom-
ous words are not the
only option. Our words
also hold the power of
life and healing. What
if we put the same en-
ergy, enthusiasm, and
creativity into plotting
others' betterment as


we did their demise?
What if we learned
to lay traps of kindness,
not retaliation? What
if we learned to use
our words and actions,
not to critique and tear
down others, but to up-
lift and motivate them?
What if we were calcu-
lating and methodical
with our plans, not so
that someone else will
explode with rage, but
that they react with
explosive love and char-
ity.
You actually can -
and this is only a re-
minder you actually
can have a profound,
life-changing influence
on the people around
you. You are able, with
your words, to set the
trajectory for a person's
entire life. Words, used
properly, can do irre-
versible good for the
people around us.
One of the earliest


Christian writers wrote
to new followers of Jesus
saying, "Think of ways
to motivate one anoth-
er to acts of love and
good works" (Hebrews
10:24). In the original
language "motivate"
means "to incite" or "to
enflame" as one might
start a fire. But the root
of the word is even more
revealing, as it means
"acid." What does acid
do? It burns. It stings.
It's like liquid flame.
When the writer of
Hebrews instructs his
readers to motivate and
provoke others in the
direction of love and
good deeds, he is call-
ing" for all of us to act
as constructive cata-
lysts, as those who will
ignite and stir up good
in others. He's giving
us creative license to be
agitators but not to
cause trouble we must
aspire to be agitators of


love and excellence in
others, and there's no
better way to do that
than with our words.
Think about the peo-
ple in your life. Who do
you need to sabotage
with expressions of
kindness? Who needs to
be roused toward love?
Who needs the encour-
agement of life-giving
words? That grand-
daughter who could
use a soft place to land?
That employee who
needs a little boost?
That student who has
extreme talent but zero
confidence? That neigh-
bor who always seems
to be alone? Those
young parents raising
their kids in this world
gone mad?
Acts of discourage-
ment are easy and abun-
dant. There's always
someone willing and
eager to rain on others'
parades; to kick people


Ronnie McBrayer


in the teeth when they
are already down; to
criticize, complain, and
carp about others' deci-
sions, performance, or
ideas. But there is such
a drought of kindness
and encouragement,
such an absence of in-
spiration and edifica-
tion!
So start devising re-
demptive ways of agita-
tion. Find ways to use
your words to motivate
others in the direction
of love and good deeds.
It could change their
lives. It could change
you. It just might save
the world.

Arnold sinks Freeport 56-28 in home football contest


By REID TUCKER
Arnold High School's
football team lived up to
its "Marlins" nickname,
skewering Freeport with
a 56-28 shutdown to drop
the Bulldogs to 0-3 thus
far in the 2013 season.
To extend the sail-
fish analogy, the visit-
ing Panama City squad's
finely honed bill was run-
ning back Torri Cotton,
who rushed for 203 yards
on 11 carries, nearly half
of the team's total yard-
age on offense, and he
scored three touchdowns
on Sept. 13. By contrast,
Freeport's leading rusher
and scorer on the night,
David Godwin, account-
ed for 77 yards on 20 car-
ries, though he did score
three of the Bulldogs'
four TDs and made some
spectacularly visceral
tackles when playing de-
fense.
Makingmattersworse,
the 5A Marlins doled out
further punishment to
the embattled Bulldogs,
with two more hurt play-
ers joining Chase Cas-
well and Morgan Hardee,
both out with serious in-
juries after the previous
week's loss at Walton.
Freeport coach Jim An-
derson said the team is
getting better, but the
going is slower than any-
one would like due to the
recent spate of injuries.
'The guys played hard
but we're really getting
banged up," Anderson
said. "We're getting bet-
ter, but it's just. taking
a while. We can't do like
some schools and .play
down. We've been playL


ing bigger opponents and
we've had some injuries,
but our guys are manag-
ing to hang in there."
Arnold set the tone
of the game early, forc-
ing Freeport to punt on
the first, possession then
stopping what looked to
be an inevitable Bulldogs
touchdown run from the
5-yard line on the next.
In both cases the Marlins
responded swiftly with
scoring drives of their
own. Cotton streaked all
the way from the Arnold
33-yard line to score with
8:38 left in the first quar-
ter. Several minutes and
a foiled Freeport posses-
sion later, quarterback
Adam McAfee hit Ste-
phen Benedik for a 43-
yard strike with 3:02 to
go, giving the Marlins a
14-zip lead at the end of
Qi.
Freeport replied just
less than two minutes
into the second quarter
after making it to the 29
on its last possession of
the first period, with God-
win making a 21-yard
mad dash for the end-
zone. Matthew Blair put
in the point after kick to
make it a close 14-7 ball-
game, but Arnold's Cody
Saunders hightailed 56
yards for another long
rushing touchdown 17
seconds later. A Freeport
fumble on the next series
gave the Marlins the ball
on the 25-yard line, giv-
ing Saunders the oppor-
tunity to thread a pass
to Ray Peed for another
TD and a 28-7 score with
8:07 remaining in the
half.

The Freeport Bulldogs got their first varsity football
win over Jay in the history of the series as Jeff Jackson
pulled down a Royals ball-carrier at the 2-yard line as
time expired to give the visiting squad an 8-7 victory. .
Freeport trailed 7-0 in the third quarter when run-
ning back Jamie Ammerman scored a touchdown, then
ran in the two-point conversion for an 8-7 lead.
Jay threatened several times'in the game but turn-
overs kept the contest a low scoring affair as Bulldogs
coach Mike Park saw his team post a win in the series
for the first time in three previous attempts as the squad
finished 4-6 in their first season with him at the helm.

Baker boys and Central girls win at Lake Jackson cross country meet


By REID TUCKER
The breakaway pace of
Baker's Dylan Scott and
Central's four top-10 fin-
ishers paved the way for
those teams to take the
win at District l's first
cross country meet of
2013.

Despite dominating the
race from start to finish,
Scott's time of 19:16 on the
5-kilometer course around
Florala's Lake Jackson


was nearly three minutes
off his District 1-A cham-
pionship-winning time
from last year. In fact, the
stifling heat on the after-
noon of Sept. 10 put nearly
every runner slightly off-
pace. The girls' side win-
ner, Shaleigh Geoghagan
of Paxton, ran 23:48, good
enough to beat her nearest
competitor, Central's Eri-
ca Waters, by 26 seconds,
but she turned in a time of
21:13 to secure a regional


berth in '12.
Baker's other top run-
ners, Cole Roper and
Mikel Copeland, finished
fifth and 17th overall, with
times of 21:54 and 24:28,
respectively, to give the
Gators the 23 points they
needed to take the win in
the boys' race. Central's
boys had 56 points and
three runners in the top-
10 to finish second in the
team competition, while
Walton, led by a third-


place finish from Nicholas
Van Eycken (21:15) round-
ed out the podium in third
place. The teams of Pax-
ton and Freeport came in
fourth and fifth place and
their best runners, Tra-
vis Shaw (22:24) and Kyle
Ammons (22:37), finished
back-to-back in sixth and
seventh place overall.
The girls' race was the
Central Show with Waters
leading the way. Three of
her teammates, Camryn


Gilliand, Beth Hopkins
and Brandi Bradley, fin-
ished sixth, eighth and
ninth, respectively, giv-
ing Central 46 points and
the team win. Paxton and
Baker's team scores were
within spitting distance
of each other, with the
Bobcats getting the slight
advantage at 53 points to
Baker's 54. Paxton's Cay-
ler Dixon finished fifth
(25:37), one spot and three
seconds behind Freeport's


fastest female runner,
Hannah Salzlein (25:34),
while Emily Murray
(26:29) crossed the line in
seventh place to give the
Bobcats three top-10 fin-
ishers.

The next meet of the
season was set for Tues-
day, Sept. 17, at Freeport
High Schoolrs newly fin-
ished course, but results
were not available at press
time.

13 lead late in the second
quarter at Chipley only
to see the Tigers score 34
unanswered points in a
47-18 victory over the vis-
iting Chiefs. Northview

ning back Kobe McCrary

Franks led the War Eagles
offensively, completing 15-
of-24 passes for 232 yards

nie Harrison as he threw

with two-way starter Ja-
cob Pugh on scores of 19
and 20 yards, -mixed be-
tween a 38-yard TD to
Ladarian Smiley. Pugh,
a verbal commitment to
Florida State, also had


12 tackles, three blocked
passes and a sack from his
defensive end position.
Baker's defense forced
seven Holmes County
turnovers as the Gators
rolled to a 55-6 non-dis-
trict win over struggling
Holmes County. Richard
Stroheker had three in-
terceptions on the night
for the Gators and T.J.

interception return as

to struggle with a young
and inexperienced team in

mance on the night as they.
improved to 3-0 overall.
The visiting Blount-
stown Tigers took advan-
tage of a pair of Graceville
turnovers and added a
punt return touchdown
to take a 21-0 first, half
lead before tacking on two
more scores in the second
half for a 35-0 shutout
win in northern Jackson
County. Senior quarter-
back Hunter Jordan threw

Northwest Florida Coast Chapter of FPRA honors Community Person of the Year


Each year during
its annual board in-
stallation ceremony,
the Northwest Florida
Coast Chapter of the
Florida Public Relations
Association (FPRA) rec-
ognizes a professional
who has made a sig-
nificant contribution
within the field of pub-
lic relations and has en-
riched the well-being of
the community.
This year's "Per-
son of the Year" award
was presented to Dave
Rauschkolb, Bud & Al-
ley's restaurant owner
and "Hands Across
the Sand" founder.
Rauschkolb is an envi-
ronmental advocate and

ly three decades. He
opened Bud & Alley's
restaurant in Seaside,
Fla., in 1986, which was
recently named one of
the top 20 restaurants
in Florida by Florida
Trend magazine's critic,


Robert Tolf.
Rauschkolb has
demonstrated his com-
mitment to the region

advocate promoting
tourism in South Wal-

to the importance of
protecting our environ-

Sandestin Owners Association


withdraws office building proposal


By DOTTY NIST

The application for
the office, building that
had been proposed by
the Sandestin Owners
Association (SOA) has
been withdrawn, and
county commission-
ers approved the with-
drawal at their Sept. 10
regular meeting at the
South Walton Annex.
The 8,906-square-
foot building had been
proposed for a 2.61-
acre site at 181 Reeves


Road, on the north side
of U.S. 98 between the
highway and Sandestin
Resort. The proposed
building was to serve as
an office for employees
of the owners' associa-
tion.
In addition to the
2.61-acre site, which
was purchased from
Doyce James and Lydia
Reeves, the SOA had
obtained property deed-
ed by Sandestin Resort
owner Tom Becnel to
connect the site with


Sandestin via a bridge
to be constructed over
a lake. Project propo-
nents also presented
plans to widen an exist-
ing driveway easement
off U.S. 98, to 20 feet
for access to the project
site. Doyle and Janet
Reeves, owners of the
property containing the
driveway easement, op-
posed the project due
to potential impact on
their property.
Upon learning that
the SOA had specified


that the access running
from U.S. 98 to Sand-
estin would be open
only to SOA employ-
ees and for emergency
purposes, Becnel with-
drew his support for
the project and filed a
lawsuit aimed at hav-
ing the property he had
conveyed to the SOA
deeded back to him.
The SOA proposal
had come before the
Walton County Board of
County Commissioners
(BCC) in three lengthy


quasi-judicial sessions,
the most recent of those
on Aug. 28.
The county was con-
tacted by Gary Vorbeck,
an attorney represent-
ing the owners' associa-
tion, with the notifica-
tion that the SOA would
withdraw its applica-
tion for the office build-
ing. Vorbeck also stated
that the SOA would re-
serve its right to "reap-
ply for development ap-
proval on the property
at a future date."

grant to be used at the
park. The funds are be-
ing requested to provide
additional restrooms,
parking, and conces-
sions, and another pic-
nic area, along with
renovations to the soc-
cer field and the older of
the parks' playgrounds.
Among the current
offerings of the park,
located on Moll Drive
in Santa Rosa Beach,
are three softball fields,
a tee ball field, a multi-
purpose field, a soccer
field, batting cages, and
playgrounds. The addi-
tion of a new soccer field
will be celebrated at 10
p.m. on Sept. 23.
Meadows said she
has received many re-
quests for more fields
for soccer and football
south of the bay and
that there has also been
interest in lacrosse.
She said the county is

currently working with
a property owner to ob-
tain a second entrance
for Helen McCall Park
from CR-393. Mead-
ows also discussed the
possibility of obtaining
some additional acreage
from the owner of some
property to the west of
the park. However, not
much enlargement of
the park is possible due
to it being mostly bor-
dered by wetlands and
state park property.
Meadows pledged to
-continue her efforts to
increase youth sports
opportunities "We will
keep trying," she said.
Meadows noted that a
separate 25 to 30 acres
is being sought for mul-
tiple sports fields to
serve the growing youth
population south of the
bay. She discussed the
challenge involved. It
is difficult to find suit-


able property that is
large enough and not
next to residential de-
velopment, Meadows
explained.
A parcel over 30 acres
in size and about three
miles east of Emerald
Coast Middle School
has been offered to the
county for purchase to
be used as a sports com-
plex, and other parcels
are also being offered
for such use. The sec-
ond workshop on a pos-
sible sports complex in
south Walton County is
scheduled for 5 p.m. on
Sept. 26 at the South
Walton Annex. Mead-
ows encouraged citizens
to be involved with this
process.
An attendee asked
about the 5-percent rec-
reational plat fee that
developers are required
to pay the county. Mead-
ows responded that,


prior to the recession,
funds from this fee had
fueled the development
of Padgett Park and
Driftwood Park and the
addition of new facilities
at Helen McCall Park.
With the recession, this
funding largely "dried
up." Meadows stated.
Angle Biddle, county
grants coordinator, ex-,
plained that funds from
the plat fees have been
tracked. "We can show
you every dime," she
said.
Brad Alford, county
facilities and parks
manager, discussed
the agreement that the
county has entered with
the Boys & Girls Club,
which makes the fields
at the club's Santa Rosa
Beach location available
for use by local teams
when not in use by the
club.
Meadows explained
that the club uses its
fields only during the


after school hours on
weekdays and not at
all on weekends or dur-
ing the summer.
In exchange for use
of the Boys & Girls Club
fields, the county has
agreed to maintain the
fields.
"We will continue to


look for every opportu-
nity," Meadows pledged.
She and Biddle thanked
the residents for their
attendance, which, they
noted, would result in
the county receiving
points in favor of accep-
tance of its grant appli-
cation.

Arts in Medicine is


an emerging field with-
in health care that ad-
dresses what many have
long known and medical
research is now prov-
ing that music, writing,
dance, storytelling and
other art activities can
play an important role
in healing not just the
body, but the mind and
spirit of an individual.
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 seating
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.
sacredheartemerald.
org/arts for more infor-
mation about Arts in
Medicine and volunteer
opportunities.

Despite the still sweltering temperatures
here in the South and along the Emerald
Coast, there are places that now, or soon will
be, enjoying lower temps and unbelievable fo-
liage. If you haven't taken a summer/fall va-
cation yet, maybe seeing the changing of the
seasons is just what you need.


Millions make their
way to the Florida Em-
erald Coast, Walt Disney
World, Tampa Bay, South
Beach and Key West, to
catch some rays, see the
swaying palm trees, catch
a glimpse of Mickey and
experience temperatures
that are a constant -80 de-
grees all year long.
But there are those
who desire to see more
than just shades of blue,
and want to see the whole
spectrum of the colors es-
pecially fall colors.
Here are a few places
that could be just a week-
end getaway, or might just
be where you and the fam-
ily go for a week's stay. It
is that time of the year,
and the reservations are
booking quickly. From the
Smoky Mountains to the
Berkshires, there are sev-
eral places to see the sea-
sons change.
Smoky Mountains/Blue
Ridge Mountains: Closest
mountain range to Florida
residents, with much for
all members of the family.
Places of interest include
Cade's Cove: an excellent
driving attraction where
deer, turkey, and other


wildlife, sometimes walk
up to your vehicle. Just a
short drive from the cove,
are Dollywood, Pigeon
Forge, and Gatlinburg,
Tenn.
This family playground
offers amusement parks,
concerts, dinner shows,
numerous hotels and res-
taurants, wedding chapels,
Ripley's Believe It Or Not!,
the Gatlinburg Aquarium,
artists communities, and
incredible, natural won-
ders that include streams,
waterfalls, and views of
the change in foliage from
mountain ranges.
Blue Ridge Park-
way, N.C./Va: Referred
to as, "America's Favor-
ite Drive," the Blue Ridge
Parkway experience is un-
like any other. It is a slow-
paced and relaxing drive
revealing stunning long-
range vistas and close-up
views of the rugged moun-
tains and pastoral land-
scapes of the Appalachian
Highlands.
Protecting a diversity
of plants and animals, the
Parkway meanders for
469 miles, providing op-
portunities for enjoying
all that makes this region


of the country so special.
The Blue Ridge Parkway
is also dotted with several
museums, mountain crafts
and art, national parks,
and numerous "pull-offs,"
where tourists can see
miles and miles of foliage,
at any given time of the
year.
*Mountain Md.: It is one
of the most fun-packed, en-
vironmentally-respectful,
awe-inspiring mountain
ranges in the nation, run-
ning 193 miles and rang-
ing from Keysers Ridge to
Cumberland. Throughout
the nearly 200-mile trek of
mountain spans and mas-
sive flowing waterfalls, the
state of Maryland has be-
come known for more than
just being the state next to
D.C* and for crabmeat, but
is now a place for bikers,
hikers and just those who
want to see the more natu-
ral side of the North.
With peaks at nearly
3,000 feetabove sea lev-
el, those wishing to hike,
drive or bike, can travel in
many directions, depend-
ing on what type of envi-
ronmental scenery they
want to view. From winer-
ies that overlook hundreds
of miles of landscape and
foliage, and state parks
that have been deemed na-
ture preserves (and don't
allow vehicles) to Deep
Creek State Park, where
tourists can view 65 miles
of sandy beaches that hug
the creek, this offers not
only the feel of being on


the Maryland shoreline,
but many other views and
activities, all throughout
the year,'
Aspen, Colo.: Mostly
thought of as the state for
snow skiing in the winter,
Aspen has quickly become
one of the "must visit" lo-
cations to see the leaves
change. September begins
the transformation of the
sycamore and maple trees
from their green color into
the shimmering golds and
reds that line the winding
mountainside roads.
Aspen has some of the
world's most expensive
real estate, including the
main shopping drag of
Galena Street, lined with
top-end boutiques the
likes of Gucci, Prada and
Louis Vuitton. Of course,
the real draw of Aspen
is the outdoor activities.
Between the Aspen High-
lands and Aspen Moun-
tain, you'll find six quads,
two triple chairlifts, four
double chairlifts, a gon-
dola, patrols, schools, six
restaurants and two bars.
But the favorite fall
activity in the state is the
changing of the season
and the fall foliage, as it
happens in September.
Aspen tourism says that
the influx of fall foliage
enthusiasts has made it
the second busiest tourism
times of the year.
Rocky Mountain
Range: Rocky Mountain
National Park's 415 square
miles encompass and pro-


tect spectacular mountain
environments. Enjoy Trail
Ridge Road which crests
over 12,000 feet including
many overlooks to expe-
rience the subalpine and
alpine worlds. There are
more than 300 miles of
hiking trails, wildflowers,
wildlife, starry nights, and
fun times. Throughout
the mountain drive, there
are many hotels., motels
and resorts, that provide
top accommodations, and
unparalleled views of the.
vistas. Be sure to check
accommodations around
peek tourism times, and
also confirm with you ho-
tel/resort is open the time
of year you are planning
your trip.
Ashville, N.C.: Set in
the North Carolina moun-
tains, Asheville has been
called the "Jewel of the
Carolinas," offering activi-
ties throughout the year.
But the Biltmore Estate
has to be the jewel in the
crown of the mountain-
side city. The 8,000-acre
Biltmore Estate has one
lodging facility, the Inn


on Biltmore, which has
dining options, horseback
riding, boat rides, and yes,
even incredible views of
the changing foliage in the
mountains that surround
the estate.
Pait of the charm of
making vacation plans to
the Biltmore Estate and
Ashville, N.C., is that no
matter where you look, the
surrounding mountains
and slopes are full of color,
but usually come later on
in Autumn, around the
last of October, first of No-
vember.
So if you are a little
'tired of looking the beau-
tiful waters and beaches
of the Florida Panhandle,
and long to see more colors
that just crystal blue and
snow white, then head to
the mountain tops and see
the entire rainbow of col-
ors. For more information,
and to learn just where
the leaves will be at their
peak, ,you can visit a mul-
titude of sites, including.
www.Frommers.com, or
www.fallfoliage.tourvaca-
tionstogo.com.

Safety First For All event

held in Miramar Beach


Story and photos by
JEFFREY POWELL
Dozens of youngsters
and their parents gath-
ered on Monday,-Sept.
16, for a Safety First
For All event held in
the Destiny Worship
Center parking lot at
Miramar Beach. Merci-
fully, a few clouds ap-
peared overhead which
cooled somewhat the
otherwise scorching
afternoon. The event
was held in conjunction
with National Child
Passenger Safety Week
and was meant to bring
awareness to several
safety related concerns.
"We want to show-
case to Walton County
that safety is important
to everyone regard-


less of age," said Wal-
ton County Extension
Agent Ricki McWil-
liams. "We are encour-
aging safe behavior for
everyone. I would like
to thank everyone that
came out today and all
of the organizations
that took part. Commu-
nity partners are vital
to dispensing the safety
message."
Among those commu-
nity partners involved
in Monday's event were
the UF/IFAS Extension
Walton County Service,
Walton County Sheriffs
Office Citizen Servic--
es Unit, BeGenerous,
Beyond Just Buckled,
Guardian ad Litem,
Council on Aging, Free-
port Fire and Rescue


and the Walton County
Prevention Coalition
which spoke to visitors
concerning tobacco ces-
sation.
"One of our jobs today
is to stress to children
not to start smoking,"
said Walton County
Prevention Coalition
Tobacco Free Com-
munity Liaison Judea
King. "We also want
to educate the public
about the different ways
tobacco companies are
targeting children with
new products. Also ev-
eryone needs to be edu-
cated concerning second
hand smoke."
Each booth provided
educational informa-
tion and trinkets for the
children to take home.


Movie review

The Mob invades


Normandy: The Family


By BRUCE COLLIER

French film maker
Luc Besson makes a
point of directing con-
ventional film genres
in an unconventional
way. He directed The
Fifth Element (science
fiction), The Messenger
(the story of Joan of Arc)
and The Professional
(crime drama), among
others, and added his
own touch to each of
the stories. At least two
of the above mentioned
films are cult favorites,
the kind of movies one
either likes or is content
to see only once.
Besson returns to
crime, sort of, in The
Family, a gangster tale
set in France. Former
mob boss Giovanni
"Fred" Manzoni (Robert
DeNiro) his wife Mag-
gie (Michelle Pfeiffer)
and their teenaged
children are in the fed-
eral witness protection
program. Fred testi-
fied against members
of his crime family and
is permanently on the
run, moving his nuclear
family to one new city
(and assumed identity)
after the other. The film
begins with the newly-
christened "Blakes"
taking residence in a
sleepy Normandy vil-
lage. Their job is to fit
in, and keep in contact


with their case man-
ager, Agent Stansfield
(Tommy Lee Jones). Be-
ing who they are, they
have a tough time. Cul-
tural differences and in-
grained habits keep the
Blakes sticking out like
a fistful of sore thumbs.
When the local gro-
cer is rude to Maggie
(don't ask for peanut
butter in France) she
burns down his store.
Son Warren, bullied
and beaten, quickly in-
sinuates himself into
every school black mar-
ket and protection ring
there is, earning a board
of inquiry from the ad-
ministration ("I want to
talk to my lawyer," is
his response). Daughter
Belle discourages a ring
of sex-obsessed class-
mates by taking a ten-
nis racket to their lead-
er's head. Fred cures the
village's plumbing woes
with an act of explosive
terrorism on a regional
chemical plant. And so
on.
This all sounds comic,
and there are funny mo-
ments in it. Both Pfeiffer
and DeNiro have done
classic Mafia comedies
(Married to the Mob
and Analyze This) and
Tommy Lee Jones is at
his stone-faced best as
the exasperated federal
agent. The humor is
stalled, though, by a vi-


olent, body-strewn pur-
suit ordered by Fred's
vengeful former Don.
The imprisoned kingpin
has put out a $20 mil-
lion contract on Fred
and his entire family,
dispatching a ruthless
hitman to travel up and
down France, following
leads and leaving dead
bodies. There probably
isn't a funny way to do
this, and Besson doesn't
try.
The result is that the
film's violence quotient
ratchets up from War-
ner Brothers to Martin
Scorsese, and rapidly.
The Don's assassins lo-
cate the family and roll:
into town fully loaded
with enough firepower
to re-stage D-Day. What
transpires surprised
even me.
It's not that it doesn't
make sense. The ending,
while unsatisfactory, is
logical. The premise is
far-fetched enough that
if you can't suspend
your disbelief going
in, you won't last five
minutes. It's just that
The Family seems to
want to be a fish-out-of-
water, Ugly Americans
versus Rude French-
men kind of comedy,
then decides it wants a
piece of Tarantino at the
end. Can Besson have it
both ways? Judge for
yourself.


MANYA MASCOT could be found at Monday's event.
